So this is a grand scale medieval fantasy war RP I've worked on time from time over the past year. I worked on background to a world that would be full of political tension. You can choose to be a whoever you wish. I was thrilled to find this active site (After my old RP site, RPGC is on rapid the decline). I hope some of you have interest in joining. The world is set in somewhat realistic medieval fantasy world. Be as creative or as colorful as you want with your characters. Here is a very basic background:
On the planet of Azae, a quiet peace has reigned over the beautiful, colossal continent of Zeldwa for just a few short years. Zeldwa, which covers over half of the planet's surface and is home to the entirety of the planet's population, is split into four nations:
Kildra, the oldest and largest of the nations, spans over the entire North West corner of Zeldwa. Once, all of Northern Zeldwa was under Kildran rule, until the infamous First Kildran Civil War, where two noble families took a stand against the slave-trade and the current monarchy, splitting the nation in half and creating the Queendom of Roadalia.
Kildra didn't have to wait long for their Second Kildra Civil war in which the people who were born into slavery finally revolted against their oppressors after a hundred of years of extreme labor and abuse. The war, which remained even in it's entirety, lasted a little over a decade and resulted in the then Kildran King, Amollus III, to split Kildra in half again and relinquish the Southern half over to the newly freed slaves. The slaves set up a new nation under a semi-democratic government called, Libertia. Slavery was finally abolished throughout Zeldwa.
Libertia didn't last longer then a few years until the nation was split between two political parties, the Lindors and the Soovs. The Lindors were still hateful and bitter over their slavery, and demanded to rekindle the sparks of war with Kildra to acquire more land then they were originally given. The Soovs had more of a 'forgive and forget' mentality and wanted to start their live anew. When the soon to be famous Soov, Zels Wintso, was elected as the new leader of the council many Lindor leaders were enraged. It wasn't long until Libertia was in a state of civil war itself. Kildra, still bitter over Libertia's secession, resolved to remain neutral throughout the conflict as did Roadalia. After just a few years of bloodshed in the streets of Libertia, Zels and the council decided to make the same decision Amollus III had made years before them. They agreed to split Libertia between East and West. The Lindors and their followers took the Western half, South of Roadalia and created the militaristic nation of Indorian.
Indorians still craved war between Kildra and now had a new hatred toward their old companions, Libertia. Unfortunately, the Libertian Civil War had left them with low numbers and supplies. They were forced to take charity from the very nation that once had them imprisoned. This was only fuel for the fire. War was out of the question for now, but many Indorians knew it was only a matter of time until they got their true revenge.
Not much is currently known about Roadalia since their construction of large walls around their border, other than it must still be run by the mad Queen Bernadette.
A fragile peace remained between these four nations for just a few years...
Destroyer of Planets, Consumer of Souls, Bringer of Destruction. Engriact has been known by many names to the people of many planets before he terminated them. An advanced being, consciousness, or entity that travels the cosmos feeding on the force or energy that breaths life into a planet and it's inhabitants. Some advanced civilizations knew of it's coming beforehand, but were powerless to stop it. Most didn't have a clue until the very end.
The Heralds of Death are three beings who serve Engriact, and two of which travel to the planets beforehand to prepare them for it's arrival. When the majority of creatures on a planet die within a close proximity, the planet fills with their life force (some view this as their souls). This is the only time when Engriact can feed on the planet. It is the Heralds' job to enure that in some way, shape, or form this happens.
Shala is drawn to the remnants of war on Azae. Her love of manipulating lesser beings draws her to the idea of sparking a full scale war all over Zeldwa. She decides to visit the leaders of each nation...
Garnerge has always had an insatiable blood-lust. There are legends of a mythical beast that once called Azae it's home, thousands of years ago. In the legend, an ancient civilization that came before man imprisoned the murderous beast deep within the planet. This children's tale intrigues him. Maybe it's true...?
Ezra, or The Voice of Engriact, never leaves his master's side. Being the oldest and most enigmatic of the Heralds, he is rarely seen by the other two. The only time they hear from him is when he bestows Engriact's commands, through telepathy, onto them.
So that's it, I don't claim it to be too original, but I've always been interested in a realistic fantasy war being strung along by unknown supernatural beings. Let me know what you guys think and feel free to me ask any questions or if you have any ideas.
