Mysteries of the Deep
The beginnings of Mer-kind



  • Songs of the sea told tales of tragic times, a falling of a once proud Empire that sunk to the seabeds. Humans knowing little of the lands that once were on the surface, or the beings that had been born from the destruction of their home. They were of Mer, granted a survival in the mercy of their Goddess of the Sea, Neria.​

    The mortal humans in that day were granted the seas and oceans as their home, along with the music that traced their songs. Atlantis was no more, yet, they lived in the crumbling ruins.​

    Some no longer held the looks of what they once were. They held the appearance of something only the darkest pits of the oceans, or seven seas could conjure in their current spells.​

    Once of humanistic complexions; some grew to bluish hues, grey tones, maybe even luminescent. Eyes were dramatically larger in some, and fins could have taken all forms.​

    Their story though has just begun, and the lost beings of the sea now must find their place. Cementing their foundations, all futures and hopes in their survival depends on them, and soul the mercy of the Goddess they strongly follow.​

    Six Mages of Old Land Magics now are the guidance to the newly established race. Although the humanistic appearance had left some, it became apparent very quickly that the greed of some remained thus throwing the people into a state of imbalance.​

    Now war threatens their existence as does their discovery by other foolish humans that believe their scales could be priceless.​

  • Mer appearances differ from each other; some remaining with quite humanistic features and others differing to something quite drastically different.​

    As mentioned in the plot, some have taken different hues in their skin tone—from the structure of their faces being different.​

    Some Mer don’t even have tails, as the race is rather diverse.​

    Tails often looked something like fish fins, dolphin, sharks, or whales. In the rarer occasion the Mer didn’t have tails but legs of crabs, or even tentacles of the octopus or squid.​


  • Mer slang taken from the written Waterfire Saga, Blue One; Deep Blue—written by: Jennifer Donnelly. Strictly being used for non-profit turning fun, and allowing interested members of this role-play exclusive slang for the Mer folk—since their language would have changed some time in regards to coming accustom to their new sea home.​

People are welcome to take the roles of royal family in New Atlantis, and various nobilities in court if they're interested. Because it will also open the plot to the differences in power. Royal betrothal for alliances, etc can take place too.

I don't have a favorite genre. I can role-play under any genre and I enjoy doing so. Though, I tend to stray more towards Fantasy, Modern, Scifi, Drama, Magical, Supernatural, and Romance (Yaoi/Hetero/Yuri).
Ima also going to take up a princess role since i have a character that I can recycle for it. I’m probably going to reuse all of my characters 😂

Still recruiting people to get in on the action. Please tag anyone you think might be interested in this little plot!
We have some roles still open:
Emperor

Guard Positions
Servants
Peasants,
etc.
You're welcome to make royal princes and princesses from other oceans, just run it passed me first because we have already got a few that are in the works or been made. E.g. I've made an Arctic Princess, and she's betrothed to a character being made by Kyatto Kyatto who's a Prince from the Indian Ocean.
