Y
ou don't know how you arrived here. What you remember of your past is foggy at best. All you know for certain now, is that you were chosen for a journey you didn't ask for. You arrive in Providence in a ruined keep on a hill. Here, you discover a single token of help: a Ring of Power. It calls to you, and brings out a power and potential you may not have known you ever had. There is an unknown force that threatens to consume this world. You have been tasked by a mysterious entity, only known as the 'Benefactor', to stop this force of destruction. But how you go about that is very much up to you.

Providence RP is a "people-with-powers" roleplay that focuses on exploring a chaotic world and making the unknown known. It is a world of imagination and strength of will, where belief and expectation play a major role in shaping reality itself.

The Inn keeps plenty of open space around its residents to relax and feel comfortable with nature. Stable animals roam in this area, and flower gardens bring bountiful colour to the eyes. Outdoor events are usually located here, such as picnics or competitions.

The Inn has a large kitchen and pantry on the ground floor, next to the pub. The pantry is always stocked with fresh food, despite no evidence of farming or ranching in the area. The Inn also serves as a makeshift hospital: there are clean beds, and in a time of crisis the Pub may be cleared out for massive care.

Public Hall

On the ground floor of this Inn is the Pub. Here, up to a thousand residents can be packed in for meetings, functions, and any important events that would pertain to the village as a whole. Food, drink, missions, gatherings, everything can be found as you take a seat amongst one of the many round tables.

New arrivals or more transient members of this world may not have or be interested in their own homes. The Inn can house up to 200 guests over three floors above the Pub. Accommodation is free, though those who overstay their welcome may be booted for the sake of newcomers.

In front of the Inn's gate is a plaza. Here rests Providence's administration as well as many small shops and artisans offering their skills outside of combat. Of note is the Steward's Hall, a tower residing as the peak of this hamlet. It flies the flag of Providence.

Steward's Hall

topic by NPC in Pine Needles on the Record on Dec 1 2016, 10:25 AM.
The Steward's Hall is the core of all administration in Providence. Here, guilds are established and officially recognized. Planning on a grand scale comes from the meeting rooms in this tower. Personal training, an armory, and jail all reside in this tower. Finally, at the top of the tower, the Steward watches for any danger.

Residential

Beyond the Town Center is largely housing. Anyone who comes to this hamlet eventually builds or commissions their own home. People are typically encouraged to live together in group housing, or be allotted smaller cottages for individual housing. The size of houses and its land is measured by how many people will reside in the house.

The Outer Wall

16 topics 243 replies

topic by Fawn in Waking Nightmares on Dec 24 2016, 11:36 PM.
The edge of the hamlet is clearly defined by its wall. Providence itself is a web of walls, slowly building out in arcs as the residents manage to safely wrest more land from the monsters outside. The outer wall also represents the extend of the Steward's barrier around Providence: beyond this wall, anything can and will happen.

Misstep Lagoon

topic by Valma in Beneath the Horizon on Jan 26 2017, 03:08 AM.
Providence is built against a large lake that flows out of the valley. Although the coast and harbour against Providence is kept safe, the unknown lurks in the waters. Buried treasure, lost civilizations, and pelagic monstrosities are all claimed to reside in this massive lake. And you sail through the valley's mountainous walls, expect anything.

Shrouded Forest

Between the lake and the mountains, Providence carves its way through and against a forest to the North. It is a dense and ever changing sea of trees and brush. What creatures, secrets, and danger lurk under the canopy are innumerable.

topic by North in A Farewell to a Dead World on Apr 5 2017, 09:31 AM.
To the South of Providence, atop an old hill, is the last vestige of stone decorating the remains of a castle. It was once the seat of power for the Benefactor, where every newcomer to this world would arrive and begin their appointed quest. Nowadays, newcomers still arrive from here during the day. But at night...

Irongate Mountains

topic by Veryn Balsamine in What's Mine is Yours on Dec 1 2016, 01:52 AM.
Surrounding Providence are a band of mountains. Although seemingly a natural wall for Providence, these mountains are teeming with secrets and danger of their own. Numerous caves and abandoned mines are hollowed out in parts of the mountains, and beyond these rocky fortresses are parts unknown to all but the bravest.

Dreadfields

topic by Atash in Through the Fire and Flames on Jan 25 2017, 11:36 PM.
When you venture too deep into a cove. When you suddenly exit the other side of a forest. When you cross the final mountain of an infinite range. The seat of Chaos and its nightmares, the dreadfields are an indescribable place of danger, uncertainty, and certain death. No one reaches this place on purpose, but anyone can arrive by accident.

Worlds Beyond

At the bottom of an old well, or through the portal within a forest shrine, in the pages of a dusty book, the ways to reach universes beyond this one is immeasurable. Although many say they are just products of an activated imagination, they and their consequences feel very much real.
