~Premise~ ~~~~~~~~~~ In the world of Tel'nura exists four dragons, four unique individuals whom are believed to have inherited power from the four fabled dragons that were said to have existed before the cataclysm. Each dragon embodied a natural element which was bestowed upon mankind, a single individual being chosen from birth to inherent their power and maintain the balance of the world in their place. These individuals would be the embodiment of their spirits, and so carried the title of dragon along with their element so that all would know whom they were. The four chosen dragons were greatly respected and from birth were given access to top educations where they would practice humility and responsibility, among honing their abilities to control their element. They would often remain within temples for the majority of their upbringing, venturing out only for educational purposes or for when their powers were required to aid villages or great cities. These dragons, while powerful, were not invincible however. Once a dragon reached their old age and moved to the afterlife, a new dragon would be chosen upon birth and the cycle would begin again. For a long time now this has been an understood part of the world, not a focus as such but an understood part of life. However things have started to change and the world has become unsettled, for three of the four dragons have found their end.... by force. The dragon of air, fire and earth were found murdered in their temples along with the temples staff and the Emperor has ordered soldiers to the remaining temple to guard the dragon of water while he tries to figure out what has happened. What is more unsettling is that the cycles for the three lost dragons has not occurred, which has thrown many into confusion and worry. With the balance disturbed and questions left unanswered, demands and questioning have sparked between kingdoms and communities and much of the world has become unsafe. Because of this the Emperor has called out to all corners of the world, sending invitations to only the strong and the brave, powerful, reliable and responsible individuals whom can undertake a task set forth by the Emperor himself. He would ask these individuals to take the last dragon to the high mountains of Tel'anar where they would be safer, and this was to be a strict secret. ~~~~~~~~~~~ So this is the basic idea. I've not gone into mass detail since I want to check for interest first. But the idea is that the Dragon of water is the last dragon left alive, the Emperor is sending them to some place safer as the place / city where the water temples resides isn't safe anymore, given the other three were murdered in theirs. The Emperor (Who will be named) has sent invitations out to individuals who he believes can be trusted. They would be people who themselves have been highly regarded by their people or people in general (depending on where you're coming from, character history etc). I intend for this to be high fantasy so magic / anime'esque stuff is what I'm looking for if you're planning on having a character with power or ability. As far as the world goes think something between Avatar: Legend of Aang and One Piece. I promote people to come up with their own corners of the world with their back story, feel free to come up with your own unique cultures that explain your characters traits etc etc. I'm all for it. The plan would be to start where your characters receive the invitation from the Emperor and you're at the great city (yet to be named) having accepted the summon. You'd meet with the Emperor who would explain your mission and how dire the situation was and then our journey begins from there. I plan on this being a long investment with sub stories beneath the main plot arc, also we'll be unraveling the mystery of these murders as we go, finding out more and moving further into the rabbit hole. I would also strongly promote people to come up with plot arcs that concern their characters too, since that keeps things fresh and interesting and means everyone gets to develop the way they want. I don't think I have anything else to add at the moment. But if you have any questions please feel free to ask. I haven't GM'ed in a long while so it's likely I've left out some important details. In any case thank you for reading!
