    Story

    Dianixen, the land of dawn—a beautiful place with villages, towns, and cities surrounded by either greenery or stark, snow-capped mountains. The robust country is home to beings known as Korastrix; humanoid creatures that can shift into dragons almost at will. The Korastrix have separated Dianixen into three nations: Nakisa, Kepiesk, and Bakmear. While they may inhabit these three kingdoms, some have decided to live on their lonesome. Korastrix such as rogues, bandits, and other vile beings may keep to themselves deep within forests and mountain ranges, only leaving when something catches their eye.

    The three kingdoms of Dianixen have gotten along for many centuries until now. Tension is growing like gathering storm clouds behind false smiles and promises between the Korastrix of Nakisa, Kepiesk, and Bakmear. Feuds over borders have sent friends at each other’s throats, newfound allegiances are dangerously weak…

    While the Korastrix broil in greed, lust, vengeance, and wrath, a horror has awakened. The Old Gods, behemoth-sized dragons that have slumbered for countless years, have stirred from their sleep. They wreak terror wherever they go, leaving behind a path of death and destruction. The three kingdoms, noticing that they were in a serious predicament, have begun to gather a group of able-looking Korastrix of all nations. The group of mercenaries, although small, have been dubbed “The Wings of Dawn”. They have been tasked with finding whoever is responsible for the awakening of the Old Gods… as well as taking the monsters down themselves.


    Nations of Dianixen

    Nakisa: to the south of Dianixen lies this warm kingdom. Lined with forests and dotted with streams and lakes, Nakisa is known for its manufacturing of delicious wines and other brews. The most southern tips of Nakisa are beaches where the sand is white and the water hardly makes you shiver.

    Kepiesk: a temperate country, Kepiesk’s territory is made up of miles and miles of moors and prairies. Some areas of Kepiesk are purely desert, but that did not stop the Korastrix from inhabiting them. The people of Kepiesk are known for their bountiful harvest of grains and meats, which is important to the rest of the realm.

    Bakmear: just above Kepiesk is Bakmear. This northern country is not like Nakisa or Kepiesk— though, its dark coniferous forests and steep, rocky mountains are said to have a beauty in themselves. Dianixen relies on Bakmear to keep them supplied with different types of ores and fish.


    Creatures of Dianixen

    There are three main types of creatures that inhabit Dianixen.

    Korastrix (Playable)

    The Korastrix are the main inhabitants of Dianixen. In their Calmed (humanoid) forms, they are extremely similar to humans with the exception of the color of their eyes. A Korastrix’s eyes may be normally or strangely colored. It is not rare to see someone with amber or purple eyes instead of brown or green. Their canines are also slightly longer and sharper than a human’s, but do not poke out of their mouths. When a Korastrix is Feral (or in their dragon forms), they resemble a common western dragon. All Feral Korastrix have four legs and at least one pair of wings. They are approximately the size of a transit bus in both height and length. Other than being similar to a western dragon, Feral Korastrix may have ears, spines, longer tails, frills, etc.

    A Korastrix can stay Feral for a limited amount of time. The more experienced Korastrix can stay Feral for a longer time period than the unexperienced. Experienced or not, Korastrix suffer from fatigue and pain when they shift back into their Calmed state. Breathing fire when one is Feral puts more wear on the body. It is not uncommon to feel groggy or be in pain after being a dragon. If a Feral Korastrix is close to death, they revert back to their Calmed forms.

    While Korastrix can shift into a dragon and back, there is no such thing as a half-shift. In other words, a Korastrix in their Calmed state cannot make their nails grow into talons or sprout wings to fly. They would have to become Feral in order to breathe fire and fly.

    A Calmed Korastrix and a Feral Korastrix are able to communicate via telepathy. Feral Korastrix communicate with each other the same way, but Calmed Korastrix speak to one another.


    Korastrix are omnivores, but they have a natural affinity to meat and prefer it over fruits or vegetables. There are some who like berries more than a nice steak, though.

    Korastrix mate the same way and with the same reasons as humans do. Most mate as a display of love—others do so in order to breed or simply for pleasure. They do not mate in their Feral forms; instead, they mate in their Calmed forms and give live birth, much like a mammal. When a female Korastrix becomes pregnant, she is advised not to become Feral as it might harm the child inside of her. The male often sticks close to his mate until the child is born (which is usually after eleven months to a year) and the female can once again shift without causing harm to her child.

    Baby Korastrix, called Fledglings or Fletchlings, are encouraged to shift into their Feral forms as soon as they can. This is done in order for them to get experience at an early age.


    This species has the lifespan of a normal human.

    Old Gods (Not Playable)

    Once worshiped as gods during the olden days, Old Gods are now considered to be agents of destruction. They lurk in undergound labyrinths, deep ocean caves, and many miles into mountain ranges.

    Daemons (Playable to a Limit)

    A type of Korastrix. Not much is known about these creatures. However, it is known that they are incredibly deceptive and dishonest. They usually cause mayhem by framing others for crimes, having an affair with a nobleperson's lover, and more. Daemons are extremely rare and no one is sure of their origin. Some say that they have spawned from the Old Gods themselves.

    Daemons are classified by a brand that they have somewhere on their body. It is difficult to see while they are Feral since the mark is the color of their scales. They kept it well hidden in their Calmed state.

    Daemons have been known to possess people and cause harm with their new bodies.

    Not all Daemons are evil, however. Some actually want to do good in their lives.

    There have been Daemon-Korastrix hybrids in the past. These hybrids are called Marked as they have the same brand that a Daemon has, but do not have the powers of a Daemon. They are usually killed upon birth. That is, if anyone finds out what they are in the first place.

    Rules
    • I am the GM, and what says goes.
    • Follow the rules of Iwaku.
    • Keep an eye on the tags. There is a reason why it is not 18+. If you want to write out the whole sex scene, do it via PMs.
    • Read about the Korastrix before you make one. I don't want to be constantly correcting people who make their character a wyvern or lung shifter when it clearly states that they are western.
    • Proper spelling and grammar please.
    • This is the OOC and sign-up thread. Forms and chatting go here. The IC thread is here.
    • You can make whatever little sideplot you want. You can even make groups of bandits and mercenaries! However, please run it by me so I can approve it.
    • I will appoint a co-GM later on. Co-GM is second -in-command.
    • Put anime pictures in your character's Calmed state appearance, please. Also, I would prefer it if you put a picture for your character's Feral state as well.
    • I would prefer if you posted in your character's scale color. If not, that's fine .
    • If you make more than one character and have more than one form to submit, please submit one at a time so I can properly permalink them.
    • Put your character's catchphrase in the "other" part of your form.
    • Style the form however you'd like, but please keep the fields that I have set. Do not remove any of them.
    • Have fun!

  4. Can I recommend a lighter font color? That's barely readable right now.

    Race: Korastrix

    Allegiance: Wings of Dawn

    Weapons: Rapier

    Calmed State Appearance:

    [​IMG]


    Feral State Appearance: Ayrin's feral form has navy blue scales, fairly large wings, and a slightly elongated body. He has medium-length claws on all four legs and a long tail. His head has two medium horns curving up from the side of his forehead and two smaller horns directly below them.

    Personality: Ayrin is very sophisticated in everything he does. He is quite self-righteous and usually thinks of himself as better than others, mainly because of his wealth. He is normally quite polite and very chivalrous towards women. Despite his negative qualities, he would never do something to hurt another and is very honorable.

    Biography: Ayrin was born and raised by his parents in Nakisa, who were self-made wealthy winemakers. Unbeknownst to Ayrin, his grandparents were renowned as powerful fighters, and he inherited much of their power. His parents died of old age when he was 23, and he has run the family vineyard ever since. The information about his grandparents got out to those in charge of assembling the Wings of Dawn, and he was recruited at the age of 26.

    Other: The color of his scales are actually closer to this, but I used this color as it's easier to read.

    Name: Tyndall

    Age: 25

    Gender: Male

    Race: Korastrix

    Allegiance: Rogue

    Weapons: Twin swords, Blowpipe- complete with several types of poison


    Calmed State Appearance:

    Feral State Appearance:
    Show Spoiler
    [​IMG]


    Personality:

    Mischievous to a cruel degree, Tyndall enjoys teasing his prey before he swoops in and deals the final blow. Many know him as a devious and cunning being of Bakmear, hiding in shadows and feasting on the bones of the people who got too close. Of course, he should know; he’s the one that made those stories up.

    Tyndall loves his woman just as much as he loves to blindside a travelling salesman and take his most prized possessions. He can’t live without the female race and bears the term “womanizer” with pride.

    Even though he is cunning and sly, Tyndall has the nasty habit of being rash at times. He sometimes makes decisions on the whim and it often gets him into trouble. Other rogues and bandits classify him as someone who bites off more than he can chew.


    Biography:
    Born in Bakmear to a pair of nobles, Tyndall never liked the lavish lifestyle his parents had. He thought it was fake and stiff—nobles were never allowed to have fun and drink until they passed out in gutters, that was, if they didn’t want their names tarnished. This is exactly what Tyndall did, and his family didn’t like it one bit. They kicked him out from their home, leaving him to fend for himself on the streets. Of course, he never complained; he was finally set free, left by himself to do whatever he wanted. He took to the life of drinking, gambling, stealing, and laying with the opposite sex. The Korastrix rogue still doesn’t complain to this day.

    Other: “Come closer~ I won’t bite… much.”

    Personality:
    Talia is a mystery. She keeps a calm composure and is stolid, only innocently smiling, but sometimes she may give off a bad vibe despite her sweet appearance. She doesn't hold any bad intentions but people mistake her as someone not to company with. She is reserved and isn't one to talk about herself a lot so if you want to get her to open up, give her something good as payment.

    Biography:
    A wandering traveler. Taliia doesn't belong to any group nor does she categorize herself being anything other than an adventurer looking for some excitement and maybe some goods. Her childhood is something in the past and isn't her favorite thing to speak of so you'll learn about it during the roleplay. For now, her life so far has been all about exploring and learning of the many different secrets that lies around Dianixen.

    Has a chatterbox, feathery companion named "Howl"

  13. Accepted, Penguin. XD

    And Panda, that dragon doesn't really look western to me. Looks more like a wyvern. Unless she's gonna have four legs?

    Name: Sivir


    Age: 20

    Gender: Female

    Race: Korastrix

    Allegiance: Unaffiliated—to be Wings of Dawn

    Weapons: Bow, Knife

    Feral State Appearance:

    [​IMG]


    Personality:

    Sivir is the type of person who seems to be always thinking. While she has many things to say, some people believe that she doesn’t due to her silence, at times. A sigh or tip of the head lets others know that she is listening to what they are saying, absorbing and thinking about what they said. Even though Sivir thinks a lot, she doesn’t come up with any useful strategies or thoughts. Usually a talkative young Korastrix, she is patient when it comes to plan-making and especially annoying people. Sivir enjoys having a good time and will often try to cheer up gloomy souls around her.

    Although Sivir can be patient, her anger should be avoided.


    Biography:
    Sivir was born in a particularly small Kepeskian desert. Even though the stretch of sand was smaller than the rest of the deserts of the temperate country, it was just as hot. Her mother left when she was particularly young, and since then, she hasn’t heard from her since. Her father, however, was a loving man who took care of her. When he died, Sivir decided to travel to the plains, thinking that she would find work in a larger city. She has been working as a sellsword ever since.


    Other: “Patience is a virtue. Unfortunately, mine is wearing out.”
    Has deep purple eyes instead of blue.

    Name: Lyth

    Age: 24

    Gender: Female

    Race: Korastrix

    Allegiance: Wings of Dawn, used to be a rogue.

    Weapons: A pair of daggers.

    Personality:
    Lyth seems to be calm most of the time, but she'd rather jump in feet first into any situation she's dropped in than to sit on her hands and wait. Lyth is an accomplished liar and often lies no matter what it is. Usually she won't tell the truth unless it's important to the mission, but lately she's trying to be more truthful about her life and accomplishments. Lyth can also be selfish, always putting her own needs above others. She learned that from being a rogue, and will likely never stop thinking of herself first.


    Biography:
    Lyth was born in a Nakisa city where she was raised normally until it was sacked by bandits and she was left alone in the world. It was then that Lyth started living on her own and relying on herself to feed herself and to provide for only her. Once she caught wind of the Old Gods reawakening, she quickly signed up to prevent them from killing her. Lyth hasn't looked back since.

    Personality: Sazael is a loner who trusts no one because of her race. Over the years, she has learned that keeping to herself is the best way to survive. However, she occasionally meets people who she feels like are trustworthy and kind enough to tell. Once she does, she sticks to that person for long periods of time. Besides that, she is naturally kind and caring. She doesn't hesitate to go the extra mile when fighting for any purpose.

    Biography: Her mother, being of Korastix descent, and her father, being of Daemon descent, gave birth to her in an isolated area away from any cities or towns. This way, their daughter wouldn't be killed or found out. They continued to live in isolation for some years before her parents died from natural reasons. By this time, Sazael was 16 and lived on her own. Every so once in a while, she'd go into major towns and such for living necessities.
