    • Aelcastle, a fjord village that was backed by mountains, forests, and swamps. No many people venture to the tiny corner in the world. Many of the villagers who live there have ancestry there but a rare few have come to Aelcastle seeking something, whether or not they find that, that is a mystery. There are many secrets of Aelcastle, some know others don't. The thing that is most defining of Aelcastle is the castle that is hidden deep in the forest. It was rumored that Aelcastle was a bustling port town but after a catastrophic event - rumors say that it was the breaking of the Monoliths scattered across the land, Aelcastle was slowly removed from the world's traffic.

      In relation to the rest of the world, Aelcastle is located in the south east of the continent of Litgura. There a many states in Litgura and they are composed of hundreds of different races. There is one state that is close to Aelcastle which is Cesest. A trade route goes through the forest to Cesest which the citizens of Cesest and Aelcastle traverse in order to sell goods.

    • There are said to be four Monoliths scattered throughout Aelcastle. As legend goes, each is supposedly governed by the four elements, Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. After the supposed destruction of these Monoliths, the areas around the town became dangerous. Weird weather, vicious monsters, and things that generally didn't make sense started to occur. The new generation speaks of fixing these Monoliths in hopes that it will revert Aelcastle to its golden age.

    • Magic was introduced into the world two thousand years after its creation. Monoliths started to appear in random places all over the globe, each holding the power of one element. Air, Water, Fire, and Earth. Just about everyone can use a magic but they tend to have a single element that they innately control. By giving off energy one can infuse their magic into something else, for example to increase the strength of a piece of wood, one can infuse Earth into the wood. However, to put too much element into an object can alter the object completely, again with the wood example, too much Earth can change the wood to stone.

      It is rumored that there is a fifth element though no one has been able to prove it or locate any Monolith that is associated with it.

      Thank you @DeadAxl for coming up with the idea and assisting me in magic's creation.

  3. Checking in.

    I'll try to have a character sheet up... soon.
  4. @Circe
    Please take your time, I think we all as a whole need to discuss our interactions with each other so we won't have the thread up for a little bit. Especially because I'm dealing with family stuff in Florida right now. In the least, I will have something up by Sunday, but I prefer Tuesday or Wednesday.

  5. *pokes in* is this the OOC AND signups then?

    Yes this is, the previous thread was an interest thread.

  7. @DANAsaur
    Wanna discuss son details? I had several plot ideas!
  8. Quick question:
    What is the estimated technological level of this "world"?
    Strictly Medieval (No gunpowder), or Renaissance (Flintlock gunpowder)?
  9. Send me a message and we'll talk about it :)
  10. @DeadAxl
    I am going to say Renaissance, but gunpowder is a rarer commodity and most people use Medieval weapons.
  11. Alright.
    Mostly I'm just asking so I know if it's better to use muskets or crossbows as the main ranged weapon
  12. Also, @Tarot

    What are the limits on powers?

    I honestly find it to be a bit odd in this "low-magic" kind of setting to have a power minimum, so I've been brainstorming on what would be appropriate
  13. Well, me an @DANAsaur had idea of a family, in which father was mage (so basically, son if half-blood mage) and young satan soul interrogated with son soul, increases his power level. But young satan doesn't want to be evil.
    This is the brainstorm we've achieved so far!
  14. @DeadAxl
    Crossbows for sure. But to be honest bows would probably be better, especially composite long bows because they can shoot further and it doesn't take as much time for them to reload as a crossbow.

    And you can use advanced magic but all three of your powers should not be advanced, two of the three may be pushing it. For example, you can't be a high level mage, have highly ranked werewolf tendencies, and a high level familiar. I like characters to have some weaknesses, not every battle will they come out unscathed.
  15. @WitchcraftIsScience
    I don't mind that as long as you don't overload the son with magical powers. Also when writing out your profile, please put information about Satan or a satan in the other field. Because if you do the Satan that will be a lot more powerful than a satan.

    I updated the profile to have an other field.
  16. Well, the thing about bows is that they are most definitely not an infantryman's weapon.

    I was thinking less advanced magic and more "able to infuse an element into an object"

    I.E., infusing earth into a building's support structures to increase it's strength, infusing air into an item to make it lighter
    Of course, there is a combat use for this as well, which I can go into detail later.

  17. I would like to partake in this journey, may I?
  18. @DeadAxl
    That is very true, I wasn't thinking of that.

    YOU ARE AMAZING! I am going to dedicate a tab to magic and have stuff like that put into it, so as the Monoliths are reconstructed the elemental magic gets stronger. Thank you~

    Of course you may! Is/Are there any particular role(s) you would like to claim?
  19. @Tarot
    Alright, let's see... How about the second student?
  20. Well, that could have some serious ramifications as well.
    The more powerful the elements become in an object, the more pronounced the effects will be.
    Say you infuse an object with water to make it softer, or (more in the realm of concepts) to cut something better.
    The more powerful the magic inside the object, the more the object becomes like water. Becoming a liquid, being constantly damp or wet, etc.
