  1. Darkest Depths.

    [Plot]
    The world is in shambles. Magic itself, the life force of the world, has gone unstable. In one day, a massive wave of corruption swept across the world, corrupting nearly everything magical in it's path. Creatures that were once majestic were now monsters, creatures that were already monsters, are now worse. The ground is littered with pools of glowing sludge, which corrupts anything that touches it.

    After ten long years, one of the few magical survivors of the cataclysm, a great wizard, received a vision that gave him hope. He saw far, far underground. He saw a gigantic beating heart that was the source of this disaster, and he saw that if it was stopped... then the chaos would end.

    He did everything he could from that day, to the day he died to gather the greatest army in the world, to travel deep underground, to find the source of the chaos, and stop it.

    And so they marched, to the very center of the most corrupted place there was. But they were not met without resistance. Wave after wave of terrifying creatures were in their way, and after a campaign that lasted a week, a week of nonstop fighting, a week of hell. They made it to the center... but at a cost, the army was in ruin.

    Here they stand, the survivors of the battle, before the colossal gates of the Labyrinth, a terrible realm of corrupted magic so powerful, that reality itself is twisted and torn apart within. It is here that they will start the greatest mission of their lives, do delve deep into the jaws of the Labyrinth, and destroy the heart of the cataclysm.

    image.jpg
    Name:
    Seali Helsdöttir
    Age:
    47
    Race:
    Undead human
    Gender:
    Female

    Personality:
    Steely and cold as her mechanical arms, Selli is fazed by little. She cares only for herself and her metallic 'children,' seeing others as incompetent and useless. She is highly intelligent and sees the corruption as a new order, a renewal of a world she despised for her own reasons. Insanely obsessed with her creations the woman can be found actually talking to them.

    Gear:
    Duel replacement arms from her childhood. Have been modified to have razor sharp claws and the bloodstains are never washed off.
    Poison blade fan.

    Skills/Powers:
    As a mechanical genius Selli has a large number of dangerous automations at her disposal. They only take orders from her voice and will not stop unless they either complete their task or are destroyed. She herself is very quick and deadly on the battle field but prefers not to get her robotic hands dirty.

    Name: Aila Faye
    Age: 41
    Race: Elf
    Gender: Female
    Personality: professional on nearly every level Aila only ever really makes jokes to herself. Young for an elf she can be a little distracted though when set on a task she will often concentrate solely on that more times than not. Though being a merc before the journey to the heart she is used to working alone and can be difficult when it comes to working with others.
    Gear: Bow, large arrows, lightweight armor used for dodging and maneuverability more than defense, grappling hook, smoke bombs, hip and back quivers.
    Skills/Powers: apart from being a rather unique archer in the fact that she would rather shoot slowly, using her large arrows to do more damage in a single shot, Aila also has an abundance of abilities that all correspond to getting out of tough situations, smoke bombs, her great agility and even her trusty grappling hook can get her out of most, if not all situations. Though if it does come to melee combat she'll usually either stab with one of her arrows or use her bow as a blunt weapon.
    How they survived the battle: Surviving the battle was the hardest thing the elf had ever done in her life. Those monsters seemed to come from everywhere and it seemed impossible to escape for most of it. Always on the brink of death the archer did her best to prioritize the most valuable target whether it be some large brute in the distance or a fierce demon clashing with an ally up front. Though with luck on her side it seemed she managed to make it this far.
    Method they would use to kill the heart: Killing things is easy, though Aila doesn't know much about killing giant hearts. Though hitting normal hearts with arrows usually kills them, so it could work here.

    Quote she lives by.... You have to fall before you can fly. You have to nearly die, before you know what it means to live. ~Eternity109.


    About her.... Name:Eternity Salark
    Age: 19
    Race: fire elemental
    Gender: Female
    Personality: Outspoken, bold, smart, and sympathetic
    Gear: Two curved swords, obsidian armor that was given to her by a wizard.
    Skills/Powers: Eternity can not only control fire, but she can also create it. A power that she wasn't born with, but given to by the same wizard that gave her the obsidian armor. She can even control lava but prefers not to because she could kill herself with it. Also, her armor has the ability to alert her when danger is near. Warming up and turning a dark red color, Eternity is prepared for anything. Lastly, she has her skills to fight with the swords given to her. She was trained by her father and soon got better with the two swords than him.
    How they survived the battle: Good question. Answer is, she barely did. Near the last day, she was so tired that dying seemed to be the only way out of the fight. Luckily, Eternity isn't that type of girl. She ended up making a wide line of fire around her as a shield. The ugly beasts couldn't even see her though all the smoke but Eternity's father had trained her eyesight to adapt to her own fire. Therefore, she attacked the monsters, killing them off one by one with surprise attacks.

  7. [Solders]
    Names:

    Felix Helsdöttir (open)
    image.jpg

    Anna Helsdöttir (open)
    image.jpg

    Ages:
    Felix is 24
    Anna died at 10
    Races:
    Felix is a human
    Anna is a ghost
    Genders:
    Felix is a male
    Anna is a female

    Personalities:
    While Felix is a unflinching rock of a young man his late sister Anna is easily frightened, especially by water. Felix is short tempered and still very protective of his sister who is more shy and innocent.
    The man is hard to warm up to although once he knows he can trust someone he will risk his life for them. The girl is much more open so long as she doesn't find the person 'scary'.

    Gear:
    Anna has no worldly possessions other then a ragged bunny doll held together by patches and twine given to her by her mother. It's name is Montesquieu.
    Felix is armed with two mechanical guntlets that massively increase his strength. Other equipment includes lock picks, wrenches, firebombs, and goggles.
    Skills/Powers:
    Anna, being a spirit, is immune to most if not all attacks. She can posses inanimate objects, like a sword or a unblocked mechanism.
    Felix is very clever as well as very capable on the battlefield. He wields his gauntlets with deadly skill but has no superhuman abilities.

    How they survived the battle:

    Felix was part of the front line muscle in the battle, using his gauntlets to crush enemy weapons as wells as their bones. He would have probably died if it was not for Anna being a extra set of eyes for him. If someone was sneaking up he would be sure to know.

    Misc:
    I know that it would have been a better idea to do separate CHs for them.

    (Crown not included)

    Aldin Merlick used to be a powerful sorcerer that watched over Labyrinth on his own time. Until the corruption came and claimed his body. While he was suppose to have died from that, his soul still lingers in his body, turning him into an undead skeleton. He has lost all of his magic and has gained new ones thanks to the corruption. He has spent years perfecting his new magic in hopes to finding the source of the corruption and putting an end to it so that he can finally rest. But time is short for Aldin, as it is only a matter of time before his mind becomes fully corrupted. Many have called him, "Aldin, the Ruthless Skeleton".​

    [Denizen of Labyrinth]
    Name: Aldin "The Ruthless Skeleton" Merlick
    Age: "Died" at 24, now 34.
    Race: Undead Skeleton
    Gender: Male
    Personality: Aldin is considered to be one of the most fearful undead of them all, his voice trembling even the dead in their graves. He is cold, aggressive, and has no interest in small talk with anyone unless it deals with something of his interest to the source of the evil. The kind heart that Aldin had before his death was corrupted, but still maintained his strong mind even after being corrupted. He will help his allies, although only if that being is needed for his goal.
    Gear: Linen robe that has heavy armor equipped on them. Wields a metal staff with a skull on the top of it, hiding a gem inside of it that powers his dark magic.
    Skills/Powers: Aldin has gained the ability to summon the dead up to life. This can include: Skeletons, Zombies, Skeleton Dogs, and various other deceased creatures. He has also learned how to use Dark Magic, which can include up to: Corrupting a creature's mind, shooting a dark blast, stealing a creature's soul and a few others. However, even with his powerful magic at his command. The dark gem inside his skull can only be used so often before it needs to recharge, so he must be careful not to overuse his magic in battle.
    Misc: While Aldin is a fearful opponent even in close and far range battle, he is rather slow, so enemies that are fast can be able to deal with Aldin. Aldin cannot die because of the corruption, no matter how damage his body gets, his body will automatically fix itself. The only way to stop it is the end the curse of the corruption. This is Aldin's wish so that he can finally move on from this world.​
     
  9. Seali, Aila, Eternity, Felix, Anna, and Aldin are accepted.

    I will be posting some characters tomorrow, and IC will be up after that.

    (I've been physically and mentally tired for the past few days, and lost some illustrations of characters.)

  10. Scanner is on the fritz.

    IC still going up tomorrow though.

    Might have to simply take pictures of drawings.
     
  11. I've introduced a mechanic to keep things simple.

    Shortly before the main party enters, a band of soldiers was sent in... however, the labyrinth quickly separated them. Should any soldier player wish to join after the main party is in, they will simply find their way to the main party.

    I will provide character sheets for NPCs as they are introduced, this will allow for better surprises, and allow me to focus on playing the most important of my roles; the labyrinth itself.

  12. May I join? ^-^
     
  13. Yeah.
