For as long as history has been recorded, there have been documents of the gods that inhabit the world of humans. The organisation of high priests are in charge of finding, training, and serving these gods and their destined guardians. Whenever a previous god dies, a new one is born somewhere in the land within the next twenty days, along with a child who will someday be that gods guardian. The organisation of high priests search any child born within this time span and gather twenty of them to take back to their holy village. Ten possible gods. Ten possible guardians. The children are taught lessons in ancient religious verses, potential gods learning about the duties of a god and their powers, and potential guardians learning combat and how to serve their future master. at the age of twelve, a gods power is realised and the true deity becomes apparent. When this happens, they will have to choose from the twelve guardians in training and form a bond with one of them, bestowing upon them access to magics and powers few others have. children not chosen will continue their study to someday become high priests whereas the god and their chosen guardian move to their new home in their assigned temple. The temples of all the gods are nearby, all situated on one mountain, however gods are only permitted to meet each other during religious events. All was well, until recently the gods have begun to loose the control they once had over the world. Droughts and wildfires, famine and a decrease in birthrates. People begin to fear that the gods have forsaken them, and plan to sacrifice them in order to bring forth new gods to replace them. Not wanting this to happen, the gods and their guardians flee the mountain. Now, they are on the run from high priests who wish them dead and trying to survive in a world they know nothing about. Their goal is to be rid of whatever force is harming the land and people before humans die out entirely. Setting: Fantasy, open world. Looking for: A few Gods and their guardians. Requirements: Able to write a few decent paragraphs in reply, no godmodding, be kind and inclusive to everyone. At least three (or maybe two) replies a week.

Other info: Example(my character): Spoiler (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Name: Dion. God/Guardian of: Guardian of water Gender: Male. Sexuality: Asexual Pan-romantic Age: 17-19 range (depends on the god he ends up assigned to) appearance: Personality: Deeply dedicated and hard working, he has always taken his role as guardian very seriously. Spending as many years as he had living in the temple with his god, he never bothered to try developing social skills so he's a bit out of his depth out in the real world, becoming immediately cautious of those he doesn't know. Nonetheless he always does all that he can to perform his duties as a guardian, more than willing to put his life on the line to protect not only his own god, but all of the deities. When comfortable he tends to loosen up significantly, becoming more friendly and open as the situation allows it. Likes: Quiet surroundings, reading, meditation. Dislikes: Heat, crowds, spicy foods. Abilities: Trained at hand to hand combat and the use of staves, his abilities rely mostly on fluid movement and not being hit. His damage retention is low, but he's hard to hit, and can call upon his gods element of water for certain attacks and other situations. Other info: He's red-green colour blind (NOTE: this doesn't mean he cant see colours! He sees colours differently see this table: There will be an overall story that I'll feed in gradually through events and NPCs but you can let me worry about that tid bit! I have many things planned. If you have any questions, just ask! and we can start once we have at least four gods and their guardians. If more than that want to join too that' fine, even if its later, they can jump in having escaped separately to the others.
