If sickness or famine struck a neighboring country, the King was quick to send aid. Food, medics, healers, even soldiers in a time of civil unrest. Jor'in was a place loved by all, yet feared by none. It served as a refuge for magic wielders and creatures alike. The King, Father Noll, served not only as King but religious leader as well. As such, he never fathered an heir-- he remained chast. Instead, he took on Wards, raising orphans who showed magical potential as his own. One such ward, Edmund, hailed from the trade city of Mordin. Loved among the people for his services, he was made the Crowned Prince, heir to the tone-- the Prince of Light. Mordin, the Capital Trading city of the Jor'in people, was not the political capital, and yet it might as well have been. The city sat on the edge of the Black Sea, carved into the very cliff faces upon which is stood. The ports were home to any and all who sought sanctuary under Father Noll. The citizens needed only obey one law, as dictated by the Gods-- to never kill and eat the fish of the Black Sea-- for it was those fish who fathered their prosperous and magical nation. The people were said to be children of the God of the Sea himself-- though over the ages it had become more of a legend than religious belief. As with all good things, it was only a matter of time before it came to an end. A disease, referred to as "Black Blood", had struck the city of Mordin. Father Noll sent for all of his healers to respond to the crisis, yet all efforts fell flat. In the Nations greatest and seemingly only time of need-- the Neighboring Kingdoms turned a blind eye and deaf ear. Finally, salvation was only birthed at a great cost... Edmund approached his Father, bringing forward the only option they had left-- to stop the spread of the plague form the city. To the Kings grief, the order was given-- and none other than Edmund himself forced to lead the charge-- against his own brothers. Fire rained down from the havens. The cleansing fire scorched the trees, the heat driving off the nightly Mist of the port city. Fire and Smoke filled the sky, ending the city in flames. The stars themselves wept at the sight, the auburn glow of the city leaving a desolated mark of ash on the mountain side. Cleansing flames burn the hottest of all. They are destruction and creation simultaneously. While the plague was stopped, caught up in the flames, so were the citizens. The prince of Light brought down a veil of darkness on his fathers Kingdom... -------- As for the role play, allow me to explain; the people of the city had begun to fish and eat the sea life. The Gods served punishment in the form of the plague. The crowned prince went out with a small group of others who could use fire magic and annihilated the city. It was his home land, and I'm thinking that messed him up pretty badly. No matter how harshly it affected him, however, it will have effected Father Noll more. The King has gone mad with grief. He had declared war on the Nations who refused to help his people-- blaming them for the death of his people. This will be a highly political Rp, with emotions running high. To save a nation, they sacrificed a city. I need people who know the Prince to join in. You can decide how they know him. They can have met in passing, or be one of his adoptive brothers or sisters-- or perhaps just a friend. What ever you choose, your character sheet should include: Name: Race: Age: Picture: How are you connected to the Prince? Are you a citizen of Jor'in? Do you support the decision to burn the city or not? Personality/ physical flaw: Powers: Do you have any? If yes, pick one-- Healing Fire (Electricity and fire manipulation and generation.) Necromancy Water (ability to swim better than most, ability to manipulate small bodies of water) Wind (ability to fly, control the winds) Time (seer/ prophet) If you want a power not listed-- explain it's limitations.
