Goshin, the Land of Five Elements, was a place blessed by the gods. With the five divine races maintaining the balance of nature, the kingdoms of men prospered. With their harvests bountiful and the ground abundant in earthly wealth, their sovereignty expanded far across the lands. But soon the kingdoms of man became the target of divine ambition. Of the five divine races, there was one tribe feared by both man and gods. The demonic Naga tribe. And a terror above all was their leader, known as the Shadow in the Deep, Devil of the sunless sea and divine aspect of death. The Naga ruler was a creature without equal, and under the leadership of three peerless generals, the Naga clan set out to conquer the human world. Though the many kingdoms united under one banner, they fought a losing war. Seeing their cause lost, the humans beseeched the other divine races for help, but their entreaties fell upon deaf ears. Save for one. One of the noble Garuda, eternal enemies of the Naga , bestowed a weapon of tremendous power and divine essence upon a champion of man. With these gifts he was called the Dragoon, slayer of the serpents. Under his leadership and might they sallied forth and once more crashed against the inexorable tide of the Naga army. But instead of suffering defeat, the armies of man earned victory after victory. They pushed back the vile serpents back to Sanadu, where the fate of Goshin was to be decided. There the Shadow of the Deep and the Dragoon fought like feuding gods. But with a swift stroke of his spear, the Dragoon severed one of the great Naga’s horns of power. Facing imminent defeat, the Shadow of the Deep opened a gateway to another world and vowed to return one day to exact vengeance. The gate opened to a strange world filled with humans and deprived of the blessings of the gods. There was no trace of magic or any of the five divine races. Already weakened from injury and battle, the Naga’s power was further limited by being transformed into the body of a human. It is there in the very streets of Yurusa in Japan that a young man’s life changes as he stumbles upon the Naga in human form. ---------- Hello. I’ve had this RP in my mind for a while, and finally decided to throw it out in the open to see if anyone would be interested in it. My main inspirations for this are Hataraku Maou-sama and My Girlfriend is a Gumiho. It’ll be a modern fantasy romance/slice of life in “Japan." I’ll be playing the female Naga character. I would prefer you to be comfortable with eventually playing two main characters, as I would like for the Dragoon to eventually come into the story. Not immediately, but at some point in the future. My thoughts for the “Earth” character is that he’s a “starving college student” type with no job or a low paying one, and lives in an apartment for one. But if you have other ideas I am open to them. I’d like to talk about the story as much as possible before we start so we can make it as good as we can. Also, I really appreciate partners who are willing to chat about the RP. If for example, you’re experiencing writer’s block, don’t be afraid to ask to bounce ideas around with me. Or if you have some ideas about where to take the story, you’d be willing to bring it up. The goal is for both of us to enjoy ourselves, and I think it’s more enjoyable if we both have a hand in guiding the story. Anyway, if I caught your attention in a good way, PM or post away!
