Go To

Andalia: The Great Storm is a play-by-post Role Play that takes place in the original world of Andalia.

The story centers on Prince Raize and those who join him on his quest to stop the demon army headed by Tabarach. To do this, Raize must acquire the cursed sword, Zero Edge.

It started in January 2011 and was abandoned at the end of the year.


Andalia: The Great Storm contains examples of:

  • Absurdly Sharp Blade:
    • Anything made from starsteel.
    • Advertisement:
    • Also, Garth's Cat Claw weapons. Mainly because they are breaking the sound barrier and they are 50% star steel
  • Acquired Poison Immunity: Eyes is much more resistant to normal poisons due to his long experience with them.
  • And I Must Scream: Dante is fully aware while being possessed by Argageres.
  • Anticlimax Boss: Belvin, Gaille's brother who was built up a good deal, went down very quickly.
  • Canon Immigrant: Kyrio Streika, Matthew Streika's father, shows up here before he shows up in New Dawn and helps to defeat Seiskelot.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Vallegrave's curse increased Dante's strength and stamina every time he wakes. It also slowly adds the Seven Deadly Sins and corrupts him.
  • Dark Secret: Sakkaku is hiding something other than his relation to the Assassin's Guild.
  • Disproportionate Retribution:
    • Zero Edge killed Tabarach's wife. Now he wants to wipe out humanity.

    • Argageres (and Vallegrave by proxy) broke Dante's bottle of scotch. He now seeks revenge.
  • Drunk with Power: Raize, slightly. He's mostly cracking under pressure, but he refuses to acknowledge that he could possibly be wrong, and backs up his actions with his royal authority and accusations of treason and saying that the other person, specifically Lady Snede, was the mad one.
  • Enigmatic Minion: Geist, the mysterious archer who showed up and tried to kill Raize, but then betrayed his own side for another one, and apparently is furthering his own goals.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Kasuga was horrified when she learned what Garth was doing to some kids in order to escape.
  • Expy: Raize starts off as a nice, if dull, shonen style protagonist who is completely oblivious to love and ready and rearing to go fight some evil. However, as the conflict is not one where idealism is encouraged, Raize starts showing more and more traits identified with Arthas Menethil, ending up following a similar direction to him. Heck, he even started the whole thing thinking of finding the ice element Evil Weapon, so the similarities might have been deeper than what might be assumed.

  • Faux Action Girl: Gaille and Taysa. Neither of them have done anything noteworthy in battle after the first town.
  • Humanoid Abomination: The Seer looks like a human, but its apparently got skeletal limbs, and one glance at it, and you can tell something is seriously off about him.
  • Hunter of His Own Kind: Sakkaku hunts down mages.
  • I Did What I Had to Do: Prince Raize had to burn down that city. The Plague would have turned all of the residents into demonic beings and would have spread wildfire otherwise.
  • "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: Kiera and Possessed Dante but only at the very end. Until he hurt Gaille, Kiera didn't really care what was going on. She just wanted to get the fight over with and find a place to be alone for a while to calm down.
  • Knight of Cerebus: Argageres. As soon as he appeared in the sky and destroyed a whole town in one blast, you knew the bad guys were serious. Up until then we only had Kalein and his ineffectual creations. Not even a Dragon he created could stop the heroes. There was some funny stuff and some Fanservice from the cast. But then a giant pile of disgusting intestines fly in named Argageres. It can influence the undead very heavily and turn them from rotting corpses into pure, unfiltered horrors. After that, he makes Dante demonic, and causes a Zombie Apocalypse in the Iron Mountains. The heroes start showing signs of being a Dysfunction Junction and try to kill each other one after the other. Dante is overcome by Wrath. Kiera had finally had enough of Raize "doing what he had to for the good of his people as a whole" and tried to arrest him for crimes against the people. And then this all leads into a story arc which is more in line with Lovecraftian horror than fantasy.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Dante when his strength and speed charms are activated or in his possessed form.
  • Manic Pixie Dream Girl: Brìghde is this for Sakkaku to a degree. She can be very serious when needed and Sakkaku is still cold towards most people.
  • Meaningful Name: Sakkaku is Japanese for "illusion".
  • The Nicknamer: Dante gives nearly everyone a nickname.
  • The Plague: Tabarach has manufactured a highly contagious one that turns humans into demonic minions very quickly. He seems to be planning something given the fact that he doesn't simply unleash it in several different places.
  • Psycho for Hire: Garth, who is in the job of a planner and a killer in order to essentially mess with everyone and fulfill his own demented goals. He also takes a special joy in circling his "prey" like a shark and launching super fast attacks.
  • The Tease: Brìghde is this towards Sakkaku. She uses words though, since, given his stances on nudity, he wouldn't be affected by anything else.
