The Gems of Ninendava
TL;DR: An emergent RP plot, focussed on individuals stumbling upon a long lost set of powerful gems possessing the power to persuade and influence others...at a great (yet unknown) cost. Although this will primarily be a EU Server endeavor lead by me, I am willing to to 'license' the concept to NA server people if they are interested in starting it up there. See contact details below for how to contact me!
You decide to visit the local market place and while passing the stalls filled with bread, fruit and other produce, you also stumble upon the stall of a local pawnbroker. His wares are exquisitely stacked but your eye falls upon a shiny sapphire, lodged in a worn and old piece of jewellery.
“Ah, good day. Your eye fell upon the sapphire? Perhaps you have a love, a friend you wish to gift it to?”
Several minutes later you walk home, studying the gem. Curses. You don’t like jewellery and you don’t even have a lover, but still you bought it. Those Pawnbrokers and their silver tongues. Urgh!
As you arrive home you sit down to inspect the gem on the ring, holding it close to a pair of candles. You make out a nearly illegible description on the ring in a tongue you can’t understand. Perhaps you’ll need to take it to the local scribe to see if she can decipher it? Oh well…at least it’s a nice ring to put on your ring-finger and as such, you do.
You proceed to make dinner for yourself but end up cutting at the top of your ring-finger while preparing some carrots. Owh! You look down and notice that a tiny bit of drop ended up on the sapphire. You bandage your finger..but wait..what is this?
As you look at the ring again, it has suddenly turned from a sapphire to a blood red ruby. What?! ...What magic is this? You feel rather scared now..what did you get yourself into? You sigh and look in a mirror after washing your face. You look powerful and strong, confident. And the ruby does have a nice look to it on your finger. Perhaps it’s time to make your mark on the world and leave this pitiful existence behind.

Once every month I will reply to this topic to give you a general update on the situation and to inform all participants what sort of ‘feeling’ the gem would give them. Rumours regarding the gems are of course free to be posted in any rumour mill section.
