The World Of Phantoms
Alright, so after some events, I've decided to start up a new rp idea that hopefully not many people have dove into yet. The title refers to those that create large scale structures and machines.
So, the world is a world known and Paralein, a planet very similar to earth in that it homes a race very much like humans, and back around 40 years ago, it ran like a late 1800 to early 1900 society. There are four major areas on this planet, the continent of Hildego, a origin to the "humans" as well cal them for easier reference. The other continent is the continent of Pangas, origin to a race of beast like humanoids. They resemble the Hildegans in almost every respect except that their ears are more like wolf ears, slightly covered in fur, and have a wolf like tail as well. The two continents are on good terms and co-habitation and even cross species unions are common place during their current times.
The third and fourth areas are at each of planets poles. Unlike earth, the closer to the equator a place is, the colder it's standard temperature is. So, the poles are actually desert. Now, the planet is covered in about 50% water, and the two fully inhabited continents make up around 10% of the total land masses, in other words, they are each about the size of North America. The pols make up a vast wasteland where beasts and monsters adapted to the harsh environments, and ruins.
The ruins are said to be a lost third intelligent race of Paralein. They inhabited the desert poles on both worlds, and when the people of both countries sent out crews, they discovered large, city sized ruins, with advance technology. The scouting teams brought back the technology, and this propelled both nations forward. Still, out of the thousand+ number of teams sent out, less then ten returned alive. This made many realize how dangerous it was to go search for the ruins of the "artificers," named for their vast creations, but the world advanced.
Two new major things were created. First, the machina. The old machinery of the world became outdated by the machina, machines that ran off the "natural energy" or "en" that is found within living things. These machines ranged from advanced energy based weapons, to self aware but contained machines that assisted with tasks.
The second was the En manipulator, which allowed people implanted with these En-m's to use what we identify as magic. Different manipulators did different things. A fire type allowed for the creation and manipulation of fire, and other manipulators worked very similarly.
Now, a new team has been created, made up of at most 5 of the best warriors and en manipulators that both Hildego and Pangas have to offer, to search through the artificer ruins, and face the perils of the poles.
So, the rp will focus on a group of at most five (including myself) that are basically treasure hunters. Anyone interested?
A quick note, this isn't first come first served. Once the OOC is up, people can apply and after a certain amount of time, I will choose based on the CS's that were turned in.
