A temple in the mountains of China is the home of an order of monks known as the Order of the Lotus Blossom. Every one hundred years, a monk of this order is selected to become the "Dragon Sage", a mortal granted the rare opportunity to consult the Divine Dragon, which bridges the gap between the Earth and the Heavens. Each monk, upon beginning the journey to achieve this great honor, is allowed to ask the dragon one question before being given the title, and the great responsibility that comes with it. This year is the year of the Dragon, the time that the selection of the Dragon Sage will begin again from a small group of monks, who must go on various journeys in order to achieve the mastery and enlightenment in order to be chosen. In the midst of this, the order has become aware of a great many troubles throughout the land, including foreigners coming into the land, attempting to usurp the land and it's riches while ridiculing the people and even blatantly taking over territory while killing the people. Our story begins at the temple, where two monks, rivals, are beginning the next portion of their training. They must journey to a nearby village to discover the reason for their recent distress message. The monks will meet people, face trials and combat, and even meet a few unexpected creatures during their journey. Profile Template: Name: Age: Gender: Role: (Monk, Villager, Westerner, Kitsune, Demon, Samurai) Abilities: (For Monks, Kitsune, and Demons) Question: (For monks only. What is their question for the Dragon Sage?) Motives: (Not for Monks. What are their motivations towards the monks? Do they want to help or not? Why?) Personality: Looks: Note: If you want to play a Kitsune (fox spirit) or a Demon, bear in mind their personalities. Demons are often malevolent, and aim only to further their own agendas. Kitsune are mischievous and cunning. While not necessarily bad, it is in their nature to tempt monks into straying from their paths of good. For villagers, you can choose to be a random villager or a member of the rebel force (explained more later), or as a foreigner or even a samurai in that regard. Any questions, feel free to ask! I will post up a profile for my monk character if anyone shows interest.
