I promise it isn't as dark as it sounds. Or maybe it is, you decide. Would anyone be interested in this? I've put hours at least into this, so with any luck, someone will take notice. OOC: Etera: Harbingers of Death(OOC) | IwakuRoleplay.com Story The land of Etera was not always a land of death, violence, and darkness. It was once a lovely, magical place, full of love and life. Upon the discovery of magick, eventually, darker forms cropped up in the form of cults. Little did they know that worshipping their false gods of darkness was only helping form a time fracture, a point in which time fragments from reality, and sets off to correct itself. Upon this happening, reality stops altogether, so that time can heal, or correct itself. Seeing as time was not healing, but was in fact growing worse, Death created the Harbingers, mighty warriors meant to collect souls and banish the Chaotic. The ultimate goal of the Harbingers, was to destroy all the necromancers, and restore the world to healing condition, long enough to seal the fracture. For the reclamation of lost and tortured souls, Death awards Harbingers with extra power. The power they hold will eventually be used to help in sealing the fracture, once all negativity is destroyed. However, if a Harbinger is slain, his or her accumulated power will disperse, leaving a radius of never ending 'mist', which will never heal, although this has no effect on the correcting of time. The belief is that if Death and the harbingers close the fracture and set time back on course, things will go back to normal at the exact moment time snapped, with the exception of leaving those who have fallen during the fragment behind. Things to know Grim Reaper/Death: The dark collector of souls, no set gender, and will be referred to primarily as 'it'. The Chaotic: Lost souls, or rather, maniacal and destructive souls that roam the land of Etera, causing mayhem and chaos, and killing indiscriminately. Are sought by the Harbingers. The Tortured: souls/beings who roam the world looking for their Soul Shards, in an attempt to save themselves from damnation and reclamation by the hands of Deaths Harbingers. Soul Shards: upon committing atrocious acts in the world, ones soul will shatter, more pieces scattering with each crime. Of all are collected before ones judgement from Death, they can present them to it to have their soul reformed and stripped of all crimes. If ones soul shatters completely, the become one of the Chaotic. Harbingers: beings claimed to have been chosen by Death itself, to lend a helping hand in collecting souls, soul shards, and banishing the Chaotic. Mist: and hazardous and deadly radius expelled upon the death of a Harbinger. Depending on the amount of power that has been gained, the radius of this mist can be small or large. The more the power, the larger it will be, in addition to being deadlier. Power: An ability granted to Harbingers by Death, it is used to seal the fracture of time. This power cannot be used for harming things, as its only function is to heal. Contrary to the belief based on this fact, it cannot heal living beings.

Sidori(Sy-door-ee): the oldest area of all Etera. Also the first place inhabited by any sentient being(animals/people).

This is my first ever big group rp idea, and I want it to be as accurate and perfect as possible, so that maybe it will get off the ground.
