The Legend of the Grimiores

Discussion in 'THREAD ARCHIVES' started by Kyy Namosaka, Oct 28, 2012.

  1. The year is 538 Derim. The world known as Aldinia is a peaceful land with all kinds of races living together in harmony. But a dark evil known only as The Shadow is about to change that. With the power of the Elemental Grimiores (Fire (Taken), Water (Taken), Earth (Taken), Wind (Taken), Ice (Taken), Lightning (Taken), Light (Taken), Dark (Taken), Gravity (Taken), Dream (Taken), Chrono (Taken), Distortion (Taken), and Mana(Taken)), powerful artifacts from the Old World, 13 strangers are about to be awakened to their true potential. Will you fight for the survival of Aldinia? Or run and hide to save yourself?

    Nobody has complete control of their Grimiore when they first obtain it. You can have any power corresponding to your element, but the power has to grow. Dont start off flying because you're wind, maybe start off being naturally faster than most and as the rp goes you gain more abilities. Be creative with them though!

    Most characters won't start with their Grimiore. They find it in the beggining though. How you obtain it is up to you. Also, Mana is the strongest element. But it comes at a cost. Everytime the Mana Grimiore is used, it drains the user. Mana is the life energy of all things in Aldinia.

    Character Name:
    Species/Race:No demons or whatnot please. Dwarves, elves, half animals and such are fine though. (basically anything that could be considered peaceful. Demons arent lol)
    Distinguishing Marks:Optional
    General Appearance:
    Secret:Please try this one but if you cant think of one thats fine.
    Grimiore Element:No two people can have the same one so please check that an element isnt already taken.
