    *Song to set the tone, akin to A Storyteller telling the history of the land*


    In the Beginning,
    There was a violent, swirling pool of energy.
    This energy,
    and all of its turbulence,
    gave way to life.
    The Energy formed into one Dragon,

    The Dragon of Spirit.

    This dragon, After eons sculpting the Energy like an easel,
    Created more in his image.
    He Created the Dragons.

    Of these dragons, Equality was not a Given.

    Some rose in power, Rivaling all other creatures.

    Some Fell,
    barely able to be called dragons at all.

    Those that rose,
    Were considered Holy, God-like figures.

    Initially there were 4,

    One of Water, and all Branches of the Fluid Element.
    Willing and able to flow and conform to almost anything,
    Able to convert themselves into a solid, Cold, Heavy, stone.

    One of Earth and its branches.
    a creature of Unrivaled power and Unmatched Rigidity.

    One of Air, And all things Free and Breezy,
    Soaring through the sky,
    granting the sounds and breath of life.

    and one of Fire, Explosions, Lightning, and Destruction.
    For what use is there in creation,
    if there is no way to mitigate the creations?

    These four were blessed by the dragon of Spirit, each granted an equal portion of his power.

    As the Four grew old, their Children were of a more diverse Elemental climate.

    One Such Dragon, Izana Kunigiri,
    became a Dragon of BOTH Fire and Wind.

    Izana had been responsible for watching the mischief his Brother was known for and for protecting him from harm, even if that mean't protecting him from himself.

    One Day, Izana failed in his task, and his brother got away, destroying cities, citing violence, Deceit, and misfortune upon others, causing the Elves, Dwarves, Gryphons, Mermaids, and all matter fantastical to step up and do Izana's job for him.

    In Punishment, His brother was found guilty and sentenced to Imprisonment, though the terms of such were ever-changing.

    As Izana had failed to keep watch on his mischievous sibling, who had been imprisoned in a prison without end,
    Be it Immortality in one Century,
    And an Eternal Pandorica in another,

    Izana wept.

    He had asked the Dragon of Spirit to punish him for his transgressions.
    Agreeing to Izana's request, as well as to his requested punishment,

    Izana was stripped of his Physical, God-like form,
    and set to reincarnate as a human.

    The Izana Cycle.

    With each new incarnation, the human has no bearing of who he is, who he was,
    only that this presence, the Trapped soul of Izana,
    is always with them.

    Be it male, or female.
    Dragon, or human,
    Izana Lives on.

    Each life has free-roam to communicate with Izana through meditation.

    During an event that happens once every 10,000 years,
    Both Solstice,
    and a handful of other times,

    Izana and his host can transfer.

    Izana takes over, and the host is kept safe inside, while the body morphs to be a combined form of both Izana and the host he is with.


    Eons have passed. The Dragons, who at one time had lived with the humans, had been long gone for hundreds of years. None, or very few, remain who STILL Believe in them.

    The Dragon Priests warn of their return, as they once functioned as Dragon Riders, their words are not to be taken lightly,

    But the Dragons ARE Returning,
    as are Elves, Dwarves, and other means of mythical beasts.

    The Humans, over the time without the others,
    had learned to control the elements.

    The Dragon of Spirit Laughed from his place observing time and space, as the little apes play around as if they were dragons.

    But something is not right with the world.

    Something is coming.

    No one is ready.

    The Firebenders are located within the Fire Nation,
    Against the Western Volcano Range.

    The Airbenders, or Air Nomads,
    Take refuge on mountain tops above the clouds in the north, east, south, and west,
    well enough away from all other nations.

    The Earthbenders are located in cities around lots of earth,
    at the bases of mountains.
    Amidst Desert Oases.

    The Water tribes are located around most major bodies of water.
    Oceans, Lakes, Rivers, and the like.

    Between all of the cities, there are free lands.
    No two countries will ever share a border,
    but the free territories will indeed have a mixture of various benders,
    Cabage Salesmen,
    *in the distance A Crash can be heard, followed by "MY CABBAGES!!!!!"*
    and all sorts of folk.

    How will the Universe handle the oncoming threat?


    Hello and welcome to Age of Elements, an RP Based loosely around the Avatar franchise, as well as all matter of Fantasy. Stories of Dragon Riders, or Werewolves and Vampires, and all matter Supernatural.

    Can you handle what's coming?​


    How the Elements Work:

    (Image was found, not made, but @FireDrake150)

    Every Non-GM starts with one of the four Major Elements. Water, Earth, Fire, or Air.

    From that point, they are granted the ability to learn 5 connected branches, and GM's are allowed 8. Learning one, however, does not indicate FULL Mastery. A Player can invest another point in a learned Element, and either gain power, or Go for a Purified Branch or a tainted branch. Once the Pure or tainted path has been chosen, however, the other will be permanently inaccessable. Choose Wisely. Only Pure versions of elements can CURE injuries inflicted with Tainted Elements.

    NOTE: As the element progression HAS to be connected, if you choose Fire, you can't choose any of the other three without learning another first.

    For example,

    Air, Snow, Water,
    Air, Combustion, Fire,
    Earth, Lava, Fire,
    Earth, Plant, Water,
    Water, Snow, Air,
    Water, Plant, Earth,
    Earth, Plant, Water,
    Earth, Lava, Fire.

    These are not the ONLY Introductory paths, as some could indeed choose:

    Air, Snow, Water, Acid, Pure Acid.

    Further note: Once all 5 (or 8) E.P. (Element Points) are spent, GM's can award points at key points through the story and the progression of things, to allow you further Leveling, as it were, however these will be few and far between.

    (Izana Kunigiri as referenced is @FireDrake150 's Character. His Brother, as referenced, is @Mighty Roman 's Character.)

    Your GM's this fine occasion are:

    @FireDrake150 (Head GM. CEO, so to speak.)
    @Mighty Roman, @The Man Without Fear (Co-GM's, COO's, So to speak.)

    ALL Iwaku Rules apply. If they are Violated, You are subject to the Iwaku terms In regards to Punishments. Should be a non-issue, but worth saying.

    Respect one another.

    DO be consious people tend to get busy. That being said, try and let your GM's know if you'll be gone for an extended time, as we can then plan accordingly.

    POST SIZE: I expect at minimum a few sentences. Try to keep proper grammar, though as no one is perfect, we will not Grammar-zazi attack you.

    Write as much as you wish, or as little as you wish down to the minimum stated above.
    (NOTE: @FireDrake150 's post sizes vary depending on the sizes of others posts and his own RL Obligations. Want him to make longer posts, and your best bet is to make your own posts longer yourself, or more detailed, within reason. ^^ )

    Characters and Players in Yellow/Red Coloring are still accepted, but on hold. This is to provide a graphical Representation of whom will likely not respond. If you're going to be gone for a few days, Make sure to let a GM Know. They can PM @FireDrake150 and he will make sure not to change coloring. Be gone for a few weeks, and the text changes to yellow, a warning for interactions with said character. be gone two months, and it will be assumed that you are abandoning ship, Temporarily, or Permanently. PLEASE Keep in touch with your GM's so everything can maintain the so-far Smooth Operation. ^^ Hope you have a wonderful day.

    <p> IM THE OOC ROOM!!! </p>

  11. What's the difference between dust and sand? Is it like sand is where you can control sand and compact in into sandstone while dust is something like erosion, where you can turn any rock into dust?
  12. I think dust particles are a lot smaller than sand particles; they can float in air a lot easier. It's pretty gruesome, but I imagine dust could be use to pollute the air and make people choke to death. Dust would irritate the skin and eyes quite a bit more than sand does, too.

    Or, if you're feeling less brutal, you could use dust to make people sneeze and complain about the lack of hygiene in the area.

  13. Sand is the result of eroded rock.

    Dust is from stuff like dead skin, house mites, etc.
  14. Quick question from a total noob here. So there seem to be tainted and pure elements. Can some pleas explain what being tainted or being pure means for an element ?
  15. YES! Feel free to pop on by, we don't bite!
