[High Casual-Advanced] Upon the world of Jigu
This is an action/adventure oriented roleplay I tried to start with someone, but she had to drop out before we could properly begin. The plot goes as such.
In the world of Jigu, the continent of Asia the Allied coalition of Nishitami, Dong Guojia and Timog rebels has successfully ousted the dictatorship of the Timog government. In the aftermath, the nations of Nishitami and Dong Guojia work to restore their lost resources, meanwhile the nation of Timog, now headed by a Democratic president, is undergoing a culture renaissance to restore its previously lost traditions.
The year is 2101; an age where technology and mysticism seamlessly blend and the wilderness are rife with wildlife both nature and supernatural. In the peace, the world prepares for the coming Winter Solstice, which marks the resetting of the solar cycle and the new year. However, in the months prior, there have been a number of attacks on shrines and monasteries all over Asia and even the Elven nation of Hasari in the continent of Galea. Monks, priests and sages of various spiritual authorities on Jigu and the spiritual realm have difficulty tracking this force as they disappear as soon as they appear, leaving the bodies of decapitated priestesses in their wake.
As the day of the winter solstice draws near, a sinister plot is gradually unraveling as a duo take up arms in an attempt to stop it...
I wanted to do something like the Lord of the Rings novels & movies in the vein of traveling across a vast and detailed world, interacting with interesting character and fighting hordes of badguys. Male or female characters are accepted. This is meant to be more like a buddy action roleplay, so I'm not really interested in doing romance between the main characters unless it could somehow work for the plot.
The setting is still pending, but I've gotten enough worked out that I can give a detailed summary of each region and race.
If interested, please also leave a brief description of what kind of character you plan to play as.
