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.​

  • Disclaimer;​


  • This role-play is largely inspired by the Waterfire Saga written by Jennifer Donnelly. Expressively I’ll be crediting a glossary of the slang and Mer-terminology she uses in the series. The Sea Glossary mentioned in the back of her book for creative language people can choosing use—but I cannot take credit for the extensive work the author has put in.​

    Some of the ideals a based off the novel—including the fact that the Merpeople were born from the destruction of Atlantis.​

    My own work has gone into orchestrating the plot around the new world opening to this generation of Merpeople—the story would most likely take place maybe forty years since the destruction, and the tribes/clans of royal Mer would be established. Thus allowing room for international water-alliances, and the growing of potential conflict in those that had bad blood between the people.​

    This time frame will also allow the characters in the present story to have learnt a little about their magical background.​

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.

Playing Style- Passive or Aggressive
I can switch back and forth between passive and aggressive play style. I used to be really aggressive, but these days I'm really tired most the time or busy. I just don't have the energy to be as aggressive these days, so I like finding partners who I can lean on for creative input when I can't provide.
Favorite Genres
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).
Genre You DON'T Like
My least favorites are horror, historical, and western.
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.
