“It's like we're the Robin Hoods of Moriana, giving light to the dark from the rich to the poor!” This will be the basic premise and history of what this Roleplay will be about. Your characters will live within this world I've thought up. It's not fleshed out entirely yet, but this is just a simple Interest Check isn't it? Weapons and magic are minimal, this will be character driven, and not all that rigid except I do expect posting expectations to be seven sentences minimum, adept. Osmoria receives no sunlight. The land has been dark for as long as there's been written record; it's impossible to say whether the planet has ever seen a sun instead of the moon in the sky. The only ways for the people to know of the passing time is the shape of the moon and the color of the sky. It is because there is no light, that the world is the way it is now. History: Hundreds of years ago, the humans of Osmoria settled in the land that is now the sprawling Moriana Empire (the only empire). They ventured deep into the forests in search of adventure. It is there that they found the Lux trees, the only known producers of light in their fruit. The land was immediately bought and solk; whoever was willing to pay the money would get the Lux trees and their seeds to plant more. The wealthy would get the light and do with it as they would and anyone could have guessed that this would be what would happen. They provided businesses and rich entrepreneurs with the way to sell light at prices only the wealthy could afford. The fruit of the Lux is later found out to have magical properties. Being exposed to it long enough gives people quicker regenerative abilities, and their health is enhanced without any known defects. Senses are sharpened, stamina is raised, strength and speed is heightened; some entrepreneurs sell it on the black market as a drug. Only another factor to give the wealthy another advantage. Moriana became the leading empire it is now because of the Lux trees. Now, there is a clear divide between the people: the ones who bask in the light with large manors and Lux after Lux in their land; the ones who reside in the dark, whether they are poor or middle-class who could work in the light farms without ever benefiting from their labor. The only light and heat they could afford would be fire and coal, but those too are regulated by the upper class. The people are called the Illuminated and the Pitched. Uprisings and rebellions are everywhere in Moriana. They have been quickly defeated by the trained soldiers of the Illuminated. None of the movements for the sharing of light have been successful. That is until several months ago. Matches: Several months prior, a group of people in hoods and armed with various stolen weapons did something unspeakable. They stole the fruit of the Lux from within the Illuminated's walls without getting caught by the guards and came back to the Pitched. They hadn't taken enough to notify the Illuminated but a figure running in the distance had been spotted by a wandering guard. The Pitched are being shown light and the Illuminated are suspicious. This is where the story begins. Your characters will be one of three “types” listed here. Just basic info. I'd like these to be as even as possible. One of the Illuminated: you will live in filthy wealth in the center of Moriana Empire. You either own the Lux or your produce the light to sell to those who can afford it. Light is a commodity to you and the lower class call you “Ill” to insult you. One of the Pitched: you will live either in poverty or in the middle class. You scrounge around and survive as much as you can. Some of you will be the workers in the Lux farms, so close to the light and not getting to use it at all. The Illuminated call you “Pits” and don't see the difference between the poor and the middle-class. One of the Matches: you could be either an Illuminated or a Pitched. The Matches' headquarters is an abandoned Lux farm and you laugh because the Illuminated bigots won't even think someone would take their old farms. You are trained to be able to defend yourself in case you run into the guards and are sent to steal the Lux fruits to give to the Pitched. Who knows why you're helping them out. Justice? Maybe. Kindness? Aren't you nice. Selfishness? Probably. So tell me what you think. Ask any questions. I'm all ears. Give me suggestions.
