So, I don't have a name for this rp yet, and it's slightly based off of a dream that I had last night but I need to convert it into a story so that I can function properly in real life. It's just stuck in my head and I can't get it out so I need to get this down.
So, this is the fantasy world known as Erinth, and this world works very differently from our. This is what many of the towns look like
This world also has magic, but not like mages casting spells and such. Instead, everyone is born with what is known as a elemental seal. These seals each have a different design and color that corresponds with different aspects of magic.
First, the circle. The circle will show what type of magic the user has. If the circle has spikes around the edge, that means it's an attack type magic. If the circle is a flat line, then it is a defensive type magic. If the circle has a second wavy line inside of a straight line, then it is a support magic.
Next is the corresponding avatar. The avatar represents how the magic will act. If it is an animal, then you can manifest the magic into shapes like that of the animal. If it's a weapon or armor, then it will manifest into a weapon or armor.
Finally is the color. The color represents the element that the magic uses. Fire is red, water is blue, wind is green, earth is brown, electricity is yellow, light is white, dark is black, and steel is gray.
The seals can be found on different spots on a person's body, and in some cases, a person can have more than one seal. There are two ways to achieve this. One, you can have a seal maker, a person with a rare type of seal that allows them to design seals for others, make a seal for you. Two, you can be born with it naturally. Three, you can steal a person's seal by killing them and actually consuming, eating, the piece of their body that has the seal on it.
Now the meat of the story is this. A group of those with multiple seals, led by a seal maker, has begun to take over the world of Erinth. Your characters will be villagers of one of the many towns that has fallen to this group.
The reason for the group trying to take over the world is unclear, but the way to do it is already known. They must retrieve the 8 books of mana. Each book is a book that falls under one element type and if all books belong to one person that can use all of them, like the seal maker could, then they can actually manipulate the terrain of the world. This would make it easy for one to destroy villages and take over the entire world.
Whether our characters want revenge or just to stop this mad man differs between each person involved.
So, I need at least 7 people to take interest in this rp, more preferably 8, each person having a character of one of the 8 elements each.
