Game Master: Diana Accepting New Characters: NO Cast List is currently full. D: Posting Expectations: Once a day to A few times a week. This is a large cast and we will be pushing plot forward. Rating: R Genre: Post Apocalyptic Fantasy Atmosphere/Mood: Action & Adventure Basic Plot: A group of people are in search for Yggdrasil, the World Tree with hopes of fulfilling wishes and revitalizing the world. Once Feldagard was a land of prosperity and beauty. Rolling plains, deep forests, ice capped mountains. Kingdoms containing rich cultures and long history ruled the continents. But no great kingdom can last forever. Jealousy and greed became the starting points of war. Countries at peace turned against each other. Tools that once made the world a better place became weapons. In the end, what Feldagard's heroes thought would save the world became it's doom. A hundred years later, Feldagard is barely crawling out of it's Neo Stone Age. The Kingdoms of Old are gone, nothing but ruins and forgotten history. New clans and tribes have popped up, trying to scrape by a living in small areas safe from the beasts that now roam the world. Yet, hope is not entirely lost. Not all history destroyed. Pulled from the hands of an Elven Knight's bones is a book. Within it's pages are the stories of Feldagard's beginnings. How the world was made and filled with life. Most particularly of Yggdrasil, the World Tee. Where within it's leaves is the power to shape the world. THE QUEST A questing party has pulled together under the command of a woman known only as Zahra. In her possession is this fabled book, and with it she has deciphered what she claims to be a map to Yggdrasil. Her dream is to ask the Glowing Tree to restore the lands of Feldagard and take back the monsters that have been ravaging the world since the End War. Yet, the questing party are not the only ones in search of this legendary glowing tree. Evil is afoot, with a desire to claim the one power that can change the shape of the world. ABOUT FELDAGARD First imagine your typical rich fantasy world with all of it's amazing races, magics and locations. Then imagine magical warfare so devastating that the landscape looked like it was hit by bombs, and now demons or other monsters are lurking in every shadow. Feldagard suffered it's fate at the hands of conceited Mages who could not admit their limits or when they were wrong. Being hundreds of years after the End War, the landscape is healing, but the cultures of people are not quite there yet. A races usually remain in small scattered villages. There's rarely travel across the world, as the monsters are fearsome. A lot of craft and skill has been lost, so finding anyone with an advanced talent in -anything- is very difficult to come by. Villages that are close to each other often have to deal with waning resources or fussing with each other who controls them. CHARACTER OPTIONS AND JOINING Step One: Post a character bio. You can use whatever format you like best. This IS a high fantasy world, so you can play any race you want or use any sort of magics you like. BUT, remember that technology and SKILL in many things has been thrown back very badly. It exists, but it's hard to come by. Character bios don't need to approved before you start posting. If there's a problem, I'll just let you know. :D I will start the OOC where everyone has already met, and they're on their way. So I highly encourage you to connect with other players and form some bonds or acquaintances. >:] CAST LIST Below is a list of the approved character bios and a quick info blurb about them.
