A world of Gods and their peoples. Leading their lives as best they want, their lands their own. Until something attacks, make border-towns dissappear overnight. Word gets to leaders, to gods. And blame is cast, old rivalries remembered, hungry eyes cast. War will fall... -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Regarding the RP: This is a nationesq RP, and in a normal nation-RP you control whole nations instead of individual characters. In this RP however, you will be a god and its race, struggling for glory among others. Depending on the poll and any suggestions I will run this a bit differently, mostly regarding how much time is gone between each post, and in what order we are to post. Some Rules: I want everyone to be able to understand and enjoy everyone elses posts, so I ask you to write in some grammatical sense, and to please dont leave whole walls of text without any paragrafs. Respect your fellow players, if you are in disagreement about something, talk with me unless you are able to solve it yourself. Dont powerplay someone elses character (in this case god/race) unless you have agreed upon it. If you are unsure of something regarding the way the world works, bring it up in the ooc or talk with me instead of posting it in wait of respons. Do not post OOC in the IC. Be reasonable, a weak soldier cant survive alone against endless hordes of highly trained knights. In the same way as a man on a horse cant travel thousands of miles in a week. Listen to the GM, as my goal is for this to turn into as nice a story as I can make it, I will try to help the players in any way I can. And when I say something happens in the story, it does. (though if I start claiming it rains ice-cream... question my sanity). Lastly, be a great victor, and a great defeated. All shall have fun! The World: the world (Move your mouse to reveal the content) the world (open) the world (close) background (Move your mouse to reveal the content) background (open) background (close) Eons past, a group of wandering gods came across an empty universe far out in the voids, a world forgotten. Wary as they were an agreement came to pass, they would reside in the empty universe and fill it with their own creations. Around a sleeping lump of power they built a planet, shaping it to their liking and taking parts of it for their own, making their individual races spring forth under their gaze. But it wasnt before long that the gods crossed in their first falling out, not at terms with how they should proceed, how they should decide... Which one of them should lead! Few, if any race knows what transpired during those times as they were all but wiped out, but the world still bears signs, uncountable years later. With some gods gone, and some lost forever, the world gained stability once again, and new gods emerged, from the powers weilded by their elders, as sons and daughters of the older gods, and some from the world itself. New races were formed, and more of the lands were taken by them, held dear as their chosen lands. And eons went. The time of new races is past, the world is spinning by itself, and new gods simply emerge to continue where others left off, though even gods may die they do so more of choice. some basic information (Move your mouse to reveal the content) some basic information (open) some basic information (close) The world is of the simplest kind, time moves in one direction, and there are no parallell versions of it. Nor any twin-worlds beside it. Magic is governed by a simple set of rules, sentience births it (though stating that it comes from life is only partly wrong, for example, the planet at hand does have its own flow of magic, as it was made that way.), a conciousness results in magic, though if the conciousness in question can weild it is a different matter. Using magic will tire the mind of the user, and if the user is using his own vitality as a way to use it, it will tire his body as well. With enough magic almost anything is possible, but the one small problem is that "enough" may not be reachable. While not everyone is capable of using magic, the act of believing in something is akin to the use of directing magic, as to why gods without followers lose much of their power. Also because your creations growth will grow you as well. While there doesnt seem to be anything like "Death" or grim reapers in this world, the concept of death is governed by something. A plane different from the living, where all dead souls travel upon their parting. Unless something makes them stay. Some races also have a different destination thanks to their gods meddling. Travel between the two planes is seemingly against the natural order, living and dead should stay apart. And while some may reincarnate either as a blank slate or with traces of their old self, the cycle of death and rebirth seems to happen through each separate race. Even if gods may have a heaven and a hell of their own, to fall or ascend into the real planes of the world means you did something really special, to be noticed by something more than mere gods.
