Welcome to my newest interest check, called Dawn of Astoria. It starts as a low fantasy RPG-like adventure and slowly dwells into High Fantasy journey adventure. Most of it will be lighthearted, but there will be violence and even possible wounds or even deaths due to both a war taking place and monsters of increasing cunning and strength appearing thorough this story, so the discretion of the readers and players is advised, thank you! Dawn of Astoria is the tale of the eponymous Astoria village, a neutral and peaceful small plot of land squeezed into two warring empires. These empire have left the village alone until now, but rumors of conquest grow stronger every day. That is why things are tense but quiet when our tale begins on a sweet summer morning. That day of of you, incarnating a young soon to be adult to their people, and another of you playing their older guide and guardian, will enter into the Fernund Caves, a set of dark and monster infested tunnels found under the Fernund Tree, the center and main landmark of the Astoria village. The duo will attempt an exciting but mostly safe exploration of these caves in order to find an object of interest for the village, and will soon uncover what remains of a great artifact, one that could change the world forevermore, should it be used and it's scattered pieces bound back in one piece. In fact, this could be the salvation or damnation of this village, no, of the entire world, and only you, players, will be able to lead this story to a decisive conclusion. The small group will increase soon after the discovery, and a grand journey will commence. The Obelisk of Gaia, one of the two nexus of magical lore in the world, lay broken in these caves, and with its discovery, you may very well spare your village annexation, or even make an empire of unprecedented power should your wish and ambition be great enough. Beware, for news of this discovery will soon reach others ears, and when one empire hear of it, the other will be soon to follow, and your peaceful days will be over. I seek a minimum of two people for this, to play the aforementioned young person and their guardian, and up to four others for their companions in this grand quest. Much like a mix of a novel and a Oriental RPG, there will be a Main story-line and a series of minor and side quests and arcs, that you seek them out will be up to you, but know that they may very well change the outcome of the story! Is anyone interested in this idea? If so, state your intrigue here!
