There is a legend in the kingdom of Lutia in which Anthros and humans once lived peaceful livelihoods together, villages would contain no distinction between the two races. They lived in a united harmony, without danger or violence between either. But such tales are written in dusty old parchments, said to be fantastical relics and mythical lore. As far as any race is concerned, the different races had been at odds since the dawn of time. But if one were to believe the legends, it is said that two brothers Temrin and Shadowclaw, not of the same blood and consequently not of same race, caused the racial schism. What once was a close kinship turned to hatred between the two and fomented outward causing the races splitting into two sides, and the races have been apart since. Many would say the belief that the Leader of Humans and the Leader of Anthros once being close kin is blasphemy, and relegate this belief to more fairy tale. Despite this, there are a few unspoken believers who believe in the idea of harmony. ----- Humans are a technological race, dealing with weaponary, machinery, and alchemy. They advance through intellect and ingenuity. Mankind benefits from rigorous military and strategy training, every person regardless of rank know at least some basic fighting skills. Anthros are a race of Animal-like creatures. They excel in magic and the natural abilities that they are gifted with. Anthros have no formal training and rely on instinct, their magic is practiced at their own pace and not all Anthros are incredibly skilled mages. Hybrids- I'm considering adding hybrids as a species. Two different types of anthro can mate, so the child would be a hybrid species. Then there are human/Anthro hybrids, those would likely be the rarest and would need to be concealed from civilization the most should one exist. Humans live in the northern half of Lutia, their villages reside on mountain and grassland ranges. Anthros live in the southern half of Lutia, where villages reside on grassland and forest ranges. The grasslands are what is the middleground between the two races. You are going to play as one of either species, or one of both, whatever suits you. In the end, will you reunite the two species and end a bitter rivalry, or spark a feud that could turn into an all out war? Now you are to create a bio, Name: Species: (If Anthro, what kind?) Age: Description/Personality: (Can include picture references) Weapons/Abilities: (Weapons if human, Magic/Natural ability if anthro) Bio/Backstory/Other: Optional You can add any information you like. I'm not going to dictate what magic, abilities, weapons your characters have as long as it's reasonable. For example: Cat Anthro- Nightvision=yes Sharp claws=yes climbing=yes speed=yes Flight=No. All this is pretty obvious. Magic: Telekinesis, Fire elemental, water elemental, earth elemental, air elemental, transportation, invisibility, Etc. these are only a few examples use your imagination, also, the magic must have some limits or it's god-modding. Weapons/Machinery- Catapults, slingshots, bows/arrows, swords, shields, spears, etc etc the obvious. Just be creative, but fair. Once accepted, go to http://www.iwakuroleplay.com/threads/of-magic-and-mayhem.31210/ and make a post ==------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Extra notes: * The current king among humans is Lionel Augustus Vancouver, the king to be (who is currently 8 and therefore too young to rule), is Jason Aldritch Vancouver *In this story, Alchemy is a science used by the humans, it has some magical properties. However, the magic can only be used for practical uses and as defensive wards against magic attacks. Humans are unable to use magic otherwise. *Would anyone like to help me devise the history behind Temrin and Shadowclaw? Shadowclaw is a black lion Anthro who rose to power among Anthros, and Temrin rose to power among humans, though they ruled equally before the feud. I'd like to make a reason for their feud and develop the plot further. I can do it myself but would like some input if you have any. *Anthros rule through their elders, which is a system that came into effect when at one point the ruler of the Anthros died, leaving no heir. This forced the anthros to develop a new system to rule the forest half of Lutia. The humans still have their monarch to this day because no such complications arose.
