If you can not find an opening by the second go-around, post on this forum to bring attention to the issue. 1. AngelLass 2. Jessica 2477 3. Xylime 4. Sleeping Hat 5. Torack 6. White Bane At this time, we will not be adding anyone else to this RP. Sorry! ::::Setting and Back Ground:::: The Role play will take place in a world called Tretta. In Tretta, it is customary to keep an article of personal value of those who have passed on, regardless of which race you are. Keeping a moment or heirloom shows respect and more importantly, for some, status. If the same item has been passed down for three or more generations, you are considered to be of Old Blood. Those of Old Blood are often given seats of Honor at events or discounted lodging while traveling-- again as a sign of respect. Pretending to be of Old Blood and being found out is a crime punishable by death. Among the Tetranians it is believed that those who have accomplished acts of heroism during life should be honored and visited in death often. As the common religion of Nitrol states, "When all of the body is lost, the soul no longer belongs to this world." People of the Nitrol Faith belief that the afterlife is not a place of peace and final resting- but a place where you will suffer for every misdeed you have ever committed, until the High Lord of the dead himself so chooses to send you back to Tretta in a new body. That is to say, Reincarnation. Tretta-- a world of magic, mystery, and mayhem-- has been a world at war for the past 500 years. Before then, the world was at peace. Magic and science worked with one another. There are two major factions. The Tetrianians, who's common major features include horns, pointed ears, and claws are the followers of Nitrol. Tetrianians live to be in their early 300's. Then there are the Niennians, who's common major features are long pointed ears, pastel hair colors and dark skin, practice science and only have faith in what they can see, feel, and touch. They live to be only a mere 100 or so years olf. Now, the Niennians have the high ground. Teaching magic had become taboo; and the belief of Nitrol had become something of an 'evil' believe as new Religions arose. Some Niennians believe that when you die you enter The Void-- a blissful sort of slumber, while others still believe there is no existence outside of life. The Museums that were public reminders of heroes past had been burned down- the relics inside sealed away and forgotten. Books, of arcane knowledge, burned and shredded. The remains of Tetrianian Ancestors had been dessicated and brought to labs, never to be fully destroyed but also to never be visited. For the people of the Nitrol Faith, it was like holding souls captive. The faith in the Gods had dwindled to a mere cult as Science tore a bloody path through the worlds very heart... -------------- Before (The Religious focal point of the Nitrol Faith) The Hall of Steria fell, a group of priests had stolen a single artifact, over 4,000 years old. Stolen, and destroyed. A skull of an ancient fallen hero- Xeimas. Xeimas had been, according to legend, a traveling man who had fought the God of Death himself in order to save the world from the embodiment of Pestilence. Though he was slain, the God of Death had been shown that the Tretians were a determined people, capable of compassion and destruction both-- just like Death himself... Legend said the God of Death took pity on civilization. At the cost of Xeimas' life, the God gave a cure for the disease that had plagued the lands to a woman who had been with the hero at the time of his demise. The cure was presented to her in the hallowed skull of Xeimas himself. That woman was crowned Queen and the Skull became the royal emblem used to always remember the noble mans sacrifice. But as all things do, this Queens reign soon turned sour. The war was in fact started by her very decedents-- a group of Tretians who attempted to outlaw 'Science', claiming it was an abomination to the Gods. Now, Magic is losing... OKAY! So this is 525 years into the war. Yes, that was a lot to read! Xeimas has been reincarnated and reborn- almost as soon as the priests destroyed his old skull. That is why, in fact, they destroyed the skull. They had hoped that he would be reincarnated in a hurry to help turn the tides of the war. This is pretty much going to be an epic battle/ adventure rp. A war against magic and science. Being a Reincarnation, the Tretian belief is you will have round ears. The Niennian people think its just a birth defect. Xeimas, who I will need someone to play, will thus have round ears. He will have been raised like any other of his race-- meaning he will be trained in magic, martial combat, and the Nitrol Faith. He will have no memory of his past life. Everything else is up to you as to how he plays! I am looking for a couple of people for this, as it will be a small traveling party. If you want to play another race and add to the lore, post your idea here and let me take a look! We need 5 or so people and then we can start the RP. I will be playing a Tertian woman, and I will post her character sheet here in a few minutes. Basic information required on a Character sheet::: Name: Race: -Sub field: PICK ONE (Magic users: Healing, fire, water, ect.) (Science: Splicing, guns, computers, mechanics, ect.) Age: Gender: Back Story: Old Blood? Yes or No If yes; what is your heirloom? (It can not be magical) Other than that, have fun!
