Greetings to all! I do apologize for the delay in this Character Sign up! I had originally started this but when I had tried to post, it did not go through and erased it. I am attempting it again to try to get this going! Introduction: There was a time in our world when there was balance. Peace was throughout and all creatures had learned to work together. We knew we needed each other, otherwise there would be chaos. The light was strong but it was over too soon. Darkness cam upon us as two beings who decided they were in the right descended upon the world. They believed we all did not need our Elements. That we were stronger and the old beliefs were outdated. They caused war and destruction. No one was sure who they could trust and what to believe. One by one, the Elements were taken out of our lives, leaving pain and heartache. What they didn't know was that the Elements were still alive and had gathered together to create a plan. They were planning to bring back peace and balance. Their followers were killed for still performing and holding the Old Beliefs; they had no choice but to hide until the right time. Water, Earth, Fire and Air acted as leaders for the Elements and came up with a solution. They were each to find a Mage. One that they can lend their power to. Mages together could stand up and bring back righteousness to our world. Now here is the question. Are you going to stand up and join us? Or are you going to sit back and watch it all crumble? We all may not be Mages, but we won't go down without a fight. We are the army to fight for us all. To bring back peace and balance. Now decide. Who's side are you on? Please Note: ALL MAGES ARE TAKEN. But you may be a follower! Followers of the Elements are Welcome! Description of the Races: Dragonians: Dragonians are the Eldest race of Godaial. They have a royal aura to them, and are ruled by a king. They have two forms: Their 'Regular' Form and their Dragon Form. Their Regular Form is one that resembles closely to the humans, but they have wings that can be camouflaged. They often hide them to not scare the humans. Back when the Old Beilef was open, they associated more with the Element of Air. The Dragonian leader is King D'ryavn. Because of the destruction of the world, he has put a huge effort towards keeping his race alive. He does not like them dealing with the Old Belief in fear that they may be targeted for doing so. So if a Dragonian was named Mage, they would have to do so in secrecy. He does his best to keep them well and has them separate from most of the world in the mountains. Siryhns: Siryns are a race that dwells mostly in the Lakes and Oceans of Godaial. They easily adapt for land travel and living by changing their normal fins or aquatic lower half for legs for land. They also lose their gills during this changing process, and easily regain their natural form when they would like to return to the water. They do not have a leader, for they all tend to prefer to be alone and one with their water. They are calm beings and would prefer to not be mixed in the mess of the rest of the race's lives. When they were able to practice their Old Belief, they were one with the Element of Water. Trolls: Trolls have dealt with the harsh weather of the deserts, and have grown accustomed to them. They have a mini government like system, with each small tribe having a chief. They tend to not have too many disputes among their own race because it could cause more deaths than good results due to the lack of necessary goods out where they inhabit. All chiefs report to Chieftain Orobane so he can keep an update and keep peace among the tribes. When the Old Belief was in place, trolls associated with the Element of Fire. Chieftain Orobane does not dislike being the Chieftain, but does not act or interfere with any of the tribes unless he believes he HAS to intervene for the good of them all. Otherwise, he tends to be on the lazy side and stays within his own hut. Humans: Humans are the youngest race in Godaial and also the biggest. Their personalities vary greatly, for it seems like one is not the same of the other. Because their personalities vary so, their association with the Elements depends upon them and their upbringing. Who they act more like is who they tend to go towards. Elves: Not as old as the Dragonians, but not as young as the Humans, the Elves do their own and adjust what they do to best fit their needs. Their leaders are those called the Elders. But their race is having huge turmoil as the ones who have brought down the Old Belief have chosen them first and have been trying to take over. They have split and are currently hiding with other races or in small groups, as they try to figure a way to fight back. No one is sure why they were the first targets, but they do have many willing to help them. When they were allowed to worship the Old Belief, they chose to worship the Element of Earth. Rules: 1. Please do not God Mode. 2. Try to do your best. We know that sometimes it is hard to react especially if there is not much to react too. Try to at least do a few sentences, and try to proofread. We do not expect it to be perfect, but we can try our best. 3. Mages, do try to remember you are JUST learning about your abilities. You cannot perfect them all at once. You can master a few techniques with natural talent, but there is a lot to learn. 4. Try to include all. If we can, avoid posts between JUST TWO people. 5. If you have a question, you are more than welcome to ask me. I do not bite often, I promise. Extra Notes: As you can see, each race has a Element it tends to follow. You do NOT have to go by that. The Element you follow is your choice. It is just a guideline to show you the basics of each race. At a later date, I will make it known about the characteristics of each Element themselves and the forms that they tend to take. But for now, we all probably have a general idea of how each element is. BUT if you would like me to put some clarifications, I would be more than happy to do so. Is there an element you are interested in and I don't have it listed? Message me. There are others, I just haven't written of them yet. Possibly for a reason. And I am sorry all, but there is a chance that not everyone can be a Mage. One Mage per Element. I have a particular bend on that rule, but it has already been decided and will be exposed in the actual RP. Until then, One Mage per Element. Character Sheet: Name: Gender: Age: Race: Element Followed: Personality: Appearance: Short History/Short Bio: Mage: Yes or no Pictures of the people mentioned above will be added at a later date. If you wanted to be a mage and it seems to be taken, still make a character and put which element they will follow. We will see how things progress and see if things change. Do keep in mind that even if you chose a race, you do not have to follow their normal in regards to which Element you follow. An Elf can follow Fire, etc. These are just the basic guidelines in regards to how the races are normally.
