    THESE ARE WORKS IN PROGRESS AND ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE
    PLEASE DO NOT POST OR COMMENT. THANK YOU.




    Deep within the limitless terrains of the cosmos, there is a set of unchangeable rules in order to keep balance among the many energies of the universe. It has always existed since the beginning of time, and will continue to exist until the very end of this world, conceived of a set of predetermined events that have happened, are happening, and will happen in the future of a fickle thing we call time. This set of rules and regulations is more commonly referred to as destiny.

    It is unavoidable, and unchangeable. No matter what one may do, their destiny will always be the same. It is decided from their birth, and when the right time comes, destiny will claim them and open the door to the next world...



    Our story starts in the land of ???. This land has been watched over for centuries by three Goddesses.

    One of Moon, who controlled all of the natural phenomena such as gravity, balance, and tides.

    One of Earth, who embodied everything living, breathing, and tangible.

    And one of Sun, who reigned over light and energy.

    Each of these Goddesses was entrusted, by the cosmos itself, to keep balance and power between each other and their darker selves. But with no physical forms, they found it increasingly difficult to interact with the peoples of ???, and though the Goddesses have always been there idly, keeping things afloat in peace and growing the realm in elegance and beauty, eventually even they were forgotten. Their temples burned down with reformation, and the monuments depicting the goddesses were toppled.

    And thus the Goddesses' powers grew weaker and weaker as they lost the faith of the people. They began to age and fade back into the vast blackness of interstellar space. But with this infernal reformation on ???, the Goddesses knew that their darker sides, their twins called the Anti-Gods, grew more powerful.

    These Anti-Gods embodied the opposite of what the Goddesses did. They were Chaos, Death, and Darkness. With the decline of the Goddesses, their powers strengthened. They used their powers to bend the realm to their own wills, unchallenged and unchecked by the balance of the weakened Goddesses.

    Thrust into an era of despair, the Goddesses had one choice. They had to find people who could fight for them against the Anti-Gods. But this task wasn't as easy as expected. They searched endlessly through the many cities and towns of ???, and eventually found three people to inherit the last sparks of the Goddesses powers.



    Setting Information:

    Character Races—

    Kingdoms— Zetia, Crotor, Auralon



    Notes:

    • "anti-gods" tentative name. needs better name.


    medieval vs. modern fantasy?

    medieval
    pros: don't have to explain technology as most people are already familiar with medieval RPs
    cons: seems too basic for the plot

    modern
    pros: would be fuckin' sweet
    cons: so much more world building and explaining to do (aka am I going to be lazy?)

    Ideas to expand on--
    • Modern fantasy gang wars or cyberpunk/sci-fi gang wars, government experiments?, basically a city's civil war. Something like K-Project. Possibly connected to The Relentless.

    • Trapped in a video game--
    Here's where I'll list all of the information you'll need to know about relics and their powers. But first, there are rules involving use of relics... You may choose ONE relic from the list to start with. You can acquire up to all 12 relics, but you can only equip two at a time. The relics' powers are limited by the level and type of your weapon. Be wary which relics you combine, as they may backfire on you.

    #1 The Hellfire Relic - a red and orange stone. It gives the user the ability to control the elements of heat and fire.
    #2 The Aquifer Relic - a blue and green stone. It gives the user the ability to control the element of water and ice.
    #3 Black Pearl Relic - a shiny black pearl the size of a golf ball. It gives the user the ability to control the element of darkness.
    #4 Dead Man's Relic - a white, porcelain skull. It gives the user the ability to animate objects, whether they be inanimate things or recently dead enemies.
    #5 Mists of Faeira Relic - a small crystal dagger. It gives the user the ability to create illusions such as moving shadows and duplicates.
    #6 Sheikra's Relic - a feathered hair clip. It gives the user the ability to create lightning and electrical fields.
    #7 Defender of the Mountain Relic - a golden ring. It gives the user the ability to create a protective shield.
    #8 Andromeda's Relic - a glass eye. It gives the user telekinetic abilities.
    #9 Skye's Relic - a simple silver chain with a glass bead. It gives the user to create and control wind gusts.
    #10 Scales' Might Relic - a dragon's fang. It gives the user the ability to create poisons and become resistant to curses.
    #11 Tribesman's Relic - a necklace made of bones and shells. It gives the user the ability to change into any animal or creature.
    #12 Unknown - Information is not available.


    • WESTERN with a fantasy, supernatural, or survival horror element.
    witches/witch hunters? + maybe werewolves
    giant desert scorpions
    snakes with "curse" venom

    Cowboys & Witches


    In a land that time forgot, a town called Friendship is the end of the line. Beyond it, a desert world unknown.

    Magic users, known as Witches, and the common folk lived side-by-side.

    But twelve years ago, Richton's mines collapsed and Friendship's resources dried up as a result. The trains stopped coming to station. Gehenna and her followers fled the area, barely escaping with their lives.



    Creatures--

    • Giant Scorpions range from a foot long when they hatch to about ten feet long from head to base of tail as an adult. There is one named Chelifer that lives in Chelifer's Canyon and is about seventeen feet long. There have been no other larger scorpions. Their colors range from sandy yellow to brown and are known to prey on humans, cattle, and even horses.
    • Ghost Rattlers are a species of rattlesnake known for their uncanny ability to camouflage themselves into nearly any background. If bitten, the venom places a curse on the victim that steadily gets worse over time. The victim may start noticing they have lost a shoe, misplaced an important item, and later may have accidents, lose large bets, and eventually the venom drives the person insane.
    • Spooks are the animated remains of people who died or were trapped when the mines collapsed. Efforts to re-open the mines were scrapped when people were dragged in by the decaying hands and never came out. The mines are now boarded and blocked off, but occasionally a spook will emerge from some unknown exit and make its way towards the nearest town. Spooks cannot be killed, only contained.

    Places--

    • Friendship
    • The Old Church
    • McKennon's Ranch
    • The Abandoned Station
    • Scorching Barrens
    • Black Peaks
    • Chelifer's Canyon
    • Breakneck Pass
    • Traveler's Gulch
    • Illusion Peak
    • Gehenna Mountains
    • Quietstead
    • Richton
    • The Mines

    Characters--

    • Gehenna
    • Hollis McKennon
    • Sheriff Rhodes

    What would happen if the sun disappeared?

    Literally? Earth would go cold and dark, but we would be able to survive... for a time. The planet would hurdle off in to space with nothing to gravitate to. Plants, algae, and certain bacteria would die quickly without sunlight, thus killing off the animals that survive on these things, which kills the predators... etc etc. We either die first by freezing to death or starving to death because we will run out of food with no way to replenish it. Maybe a small colony could survive underground as long as they are able to replenish food and water. But basically we'd be fucked.

    Muses are physical beings, like slaves? Used for their magical auras that allow people to create (or destroy) at their best. Very powerful beings. (But why can't they free themselves?)

    2131 AD
    Deforestation, carbon emissions, oil spills, garbage, war, and natural disasters... An irreversible chain of events ultimately caused by the fingers of human greed. By the time we realized we were digging our own grave, it was too late to reverse the damage. With the forests hacked away to stumps, the oceans becoming acidic from carbon dioxide, and the atmosphere turning to poison, humanity nearly became extinct.

    Now finally fearing their own demise, the world’s political leaders and wealthy individuals began drumming up a new project to save themselves.

    Hastily, they built the Domes: vast structures, like bubbles as large as mountains, built to protect those lucky enough to get inside. Originally, these self sufficient bio-domes were drafted as structures to be built on Mars for the eventual colonization of other planets, but the wars and disasters seeped the funding from the world's space programs and no human ever set foot on the red planet.

    Outside, the rest of the world caved on itself, and left nearly nothing but waste and death behind.


    2631 AD
    Five hundred years later, located in the center of the continent, is a dome with cities, theme parks, forests, seas, highways, and farms. Its hull shields its inhabitants from the rays of the sun like a second atmosphere, and like an atmosphere it also has its own weather system.

    Outside is an unexplored world of vast deserts, oceans, forests, and mysterious creatures. The people inside the domes never dare leave their sanctuary, not for fear of the unpredictable weather or animals, but for the people who live outside.

    Thousands of years ago, in texts and scrolls lost to time and change and wars, the Dragonkin ruled our world. They were few, but their powers were said to be divine. They possessed the ability to tame and control the most powerful creatures in existence: dragons.

    With this power, there were none to match them. Whether it was fear, or respect, or awe, or a combination thereof, the Dragonkin were able to unite the world under one banner, and under their rule, the world knew no greater or longer peace before, or since.

    But the peace did not last forever. Wherever there is power, there is corruption. Wherever there is power, there is resistance.

    The Dragonkin consisted of only two families. And, of course, the two families ruling side-by-side were eventually torn apart by a trivial but personal feud that resulted in a bloody battle.

    The few Dragonkin who survived lost their power when all the dragons disappeared as a result of the battle, and separate countries of Northland and Hynn soonafter came into existence, along with a few smaller states. Jesparr was the name given to the area still under control of the few Dragonkin remaining, but even this area, after thousands of years, began splitting apart into very loosely tied provinces.

    The only thing that kept the Dragonkin in power was the fact that they possessed the last dragon egg in their stronghold, believed to be able to hatch at any moment they needed. But, this rumor soon turned to myth, and the dragon egg laid dormant for hundreds of years.


    Northland's king eventually decided to take advantage of Jesparr's weakened and disunified state. He launched an assault on the country with his powerful army and easily took control of it, forcing the remaining Dragonkin out of their last stronghold and, as far as the common knowledge goes, they were all slaughtered, and the Dragonkin were no more.



    It's been two hundred years since the Dragonkin disappeared and Northland took control of Jesparr and the dragon egg, but rumors of a second dragon egg have recently started spreading throughout the land. The Dragonkin were not in possession of this egg when they disappeared, and an unclaimed egg is a very enticing prospect for a lot of people, whether they crave money, power, or war.


    Current Events:

    Denre and Ixzian have been fighting naval battles over possession of the islands within the Red Gulf for a decade.
    Gorxoth's pirates continually raid coastal towns of Jesparr and the Summer Isles, taking advantage of the war waging between Northland, Denre, and Ixzian.
    Hynn refuses councils or alliances with any country.


    [​IMG]

    Countries:
    • Kingdom of Northland, Jesparr (jess-PAR) -- province of Northland
    • Denre (DEN-ruh)
    • Sezra
    • Hynn (HINE), the Realm of the Fae (or Elves)
    • Gorxoth (GORGS-awth)
    • Ixzian (ICKS-ee-on) (Orcs)
    Political Legend:
    ◇ allied
    ⊗ enemies (actively engaged in warfare)
    ↔ neutral
    ⋯ no relation

    Northland: ⊗ Denre, ◇ Sezra, ⋯ Hynn, ⊗ Gorxoth, ◇ Ixzian
    Denre: ⊗ Northland, ↔ Sezra, ⋯ Hynn, ↔ Gorxoth, ⊗ Ixzian
    Sezra: ◇ Northland, ↔ Denre, ⋯ Hynn, ◇ Gorxoth, ↔ Ixzian
    Hynn: ⋯ Northland, ⋯ Denre, ⋯ Sezra, ⋯ Gorxoth, ⋯ Ixzian
    Gorxoth: ⊗ Northland, ↔ Denre, ◇ Sezra, ⋯ Hynn, ↔ Ixzian
    Ixzian: ◇ Northland, ⊗ Denre, ↔ Sezra, ⋯ Hynn, ↔ Gorxoth


    Peoples:
    Men (humans) -- perhaps the most numerous race in the land.
    Orcs -- a bestial and proud race.
    Fae (a term used by Men to describe magical folk) -- High-Elves, Dark Elves, and other minorities.

    • High Elves-- isolationist, holier-than-thou attitude. Absolutely hate the Dark Elves and refer to them by a derogatory term, "Shadowskins." It is rare that visitors are permitted within the borders of Hynn.
    • Dark Elves-- skin colors range from light gray to black. Historically banished from Hynn and made their home on the large island now called Gorxoth, mostly run by pirates.

    Population Distribution by Country

    Northland (mainland) 95% Men, 5% Orc
    Jesparr 70% Men, 30% Dark Elves
    Denre 98% Men, 2% other
    Sezra 50% Men, 30% Dark Elves, 10% Orc, 10% mixed race or other
    Hynn 95% High Elves, 5% other fae (excluding Dark Elves)
    Gorxoth 90% Dark Elves, 10% Men
    Ixzian 95% Orc, 5% Men

    Worlds apart, people talk about them. Hushed voices, low tones, quick words. Stories of children spirited away, of grown men disappearing to the sound of silence, of women widowed by death or something worse. To anyone who didn't know, they would look natural, if ill-timed; mists that floated in on a haphazard breeze and disappeared just as quickly. But the last thing to call them is natural.

    The mists eat.

    This predator is picky though. Some people wander in only to find their way out a couple of miles away, baffled and slightly unfulfilled by their run-in with the swallowing mists. Those are the lucky ones. Then there are the groups that are caught and wander aimlessly for hours. And when a drop of sunlight breaks through the mists, they've found their way into a completely new world, a completely new time or some grotesque mix of the two. And the mists will just float away. At least, that's how it has been.

    Slowly, the mists have grown thick and dark, more like rainclouds that mists. And every so often, they'll belch a monster. Things with claws and fangs, things with acid, swarms, legions, demons. Every terror that lurks in the mind spills out into the worlds and bleed darkness unto them. Through the mists, from some black pit in another world. And no one has the solution. At least, not in this world...

    The only way to fight is by using the enemy. The only way to learn is to move with the mists. And the only way to survive is to keep an eye on your back.

    "Mother always wanted a son. But she only had me until you were born. No matter what I did, no matter how hard I worked, or how much I tried, she could never be proud of me. I'm not the child she wanted. You are.

    I hate how she looks at you differently. I hate how she loves you. And I hate how ungrateful you are. You're never there for her. You don't care, and yet you're all she talks about. All she says is how she can't wait to see you, and how proud she is, and how handsome and talented you are. I'm just a convenience. She doesn't even look me in the eyes, like I'm not even there.

    She only kept me because father convinced her to."

    Are You Ready, Player One?

    Some kind of virtual reality game, custom avatars, but the lines between reality and the virtual world start to blur. Blah blah blah. More on this later when I remember all the brainstorming I did.

    Governments involved
    Team up with popular/well-known avatars who may know the ins and outs of all the sketchy shit. (hackers/cheaters?)
    TRY NOT TO GET BANNED (lol)

    Different servers = different worlds/cities?
    pay to play servers

    combat team character roles:
    techmage
    runner

    abilities? power-ups?
    temporarily disable all projectile weapons (including your team's)

    Don't mind me. This is just a list of hilarious insults generated from online insult generators.


    • Travelers will spin yarns of your awe-inspiring slowness for milennia after you hang yourself.
    • Please fuck off, you unattractive cockfalcon.
    • You're the first shitlord I've ever strongly desired to suffocate.
    • My version of a romantic Tuesday evening is witnessing a drug dealer stab your mouth.
    • The idea that you're not dead depresses me.
    • It's typical for me to go for a jog and visualize you dying.
    • I don't even feel sorry for your terrible life.
    • Your continued existence makes me realize there is no justice in the world.
    • People don't hate you because you're ugly. It's true that you are unbelievably ugly; that's just not why people hate you.
    • Don't even pretend that I won't take a monsterous fucking shit in your office.
    • I have a hard time thinking of a bleaker destiny than being forced to spend time with you.
    • I would like to warmly invite you to shut up, you shit slinging dung merchant.

    • lard-humping goblin
    • knobrot
    • insolent toad
    • unnecessary elf-skinned harlot
