The world of Azure
Hello! Welcome to my role play! This is a steam punk setting. Well, lets get right into the backstory eh?
In the world of Azure, the world was first black. A canvas of darkness. Swirling around in the infinite cosmos. The cold dead world was born asleep. Blue and dead in its journey across the universe. After aeons of wandering along. The world of Azure finally found its self in a place to stay. Sucked into the gravity field of a passing sun, Azure began its new life. Among other planets in the Sotali solar system, Azure was ushered in a new start. The goddess of life and beginnings, Grandoma, set about painting the dark world with color.
The fresh canvas of black was a new setting for her. She first set the world with red. Lava formed across the crusted world. The crust split. The life blood of the world spilled in seas. Molten raw metals formed across the world. Slowly worming its way around. Soon all settled and thus Azure was set with a new foundation. Using all the resources of the set world. Grandoma smiled with her work. This was but the first set in a setting a world to live. Renwing its flesh with fire and light. Then she set to cool the world with her breath and tears. With a gust from her lungs, the liquid rock cried out in a steamy wail. Birthing the oceans and seas, they mimicked the flavor of her tears and began to become salty. Out of the vast steamed sea Grandoma rose the great mountains.
The first lands began to appear. Four continents rose. To the high north was the frigid frost regions of Lagora. With its sister continent Hermios to the extreme south. Lands frozen forever in their young years. Covered in mystery and magic. Under a blanket of snow and ice. They would forever be uncharted and untapped for many many centuries.
To the west the continent of Kinnodo climbed from the sea. All in its sparkling glory. High mountains on its eastern coast. Extremely vast and green. A perfect place to bear a nation of love,peace,equality.
To the east was the largest continent, Azgora. It was huge. With a wide verity of elements. Sand lands, forests, vast mountain ranges. Its metals available in expanses as far as the eye could see. This land would bear hardy people. Their values in strength,courage, and honor.
As the world grew from its young age. Gandoma had one final task. She set to let life roam. She blessed the fish with the ability to swim and gave them the gift of the seas to command. Their guardians, the Naga were men and women with the aspects of the sea. Fins and gills their traits. With the oceans at their will, they lived in secrecy as much as possible and chose to stay away from the world of surface walkers. Slinking deep into their underwater cities far from the sight of men.
To men she blessed them great mind. The ability to invent and adapt the world to their wish. With their infinite curiosity, they would control the surface. With the lungs, they quickly took to controlling the lands and bending the elements to their will. Machines were their medium to power. So technology quickly spread as the silver age came through.
But soon enough greed took over. The race of men would not let a single person control so much power. Greed for material needs and power ruled the hearts of men. As all storys go, this one was without a true hero. As men did not realize their faults. War broke over the conservation of the world or havings its power.
Grandoma was so distraught as she had poured so much of her love to this world. Originally they had worshiped her, but now she was but a relic of the past. The only race that stilled held her in high revere were the merfolk. Naga shamans heard her cries. They would finally come out of hiding. To end the human struggle, the naga used most of their power to reset the world. As the polluted seas and oceans had poisoned and choked the Naga. Their race was already much on the decline.
As Grandoma left her presence from Azure. No longer listening and caring for the world. The seas and oceans rose. Covering most of the world in water. Truly becoming what its name sake the world was. It was was blue as its name. Many humans perished. The great world washing had come.
The remaining humans took to the waters and to the air. Creating vast islands of metal to live on. And in the air gargantuan air ships floated up. This is where you are now. Many years after the great washing, you look for your spot in the world.
Humanity has rebuilt it self. Becoming much more soft and easy going. Seeing their mistakes with the great washing. A new start for a fresh mind of the humans.
What will you chose to do? What will you become? Well, thats what this is about. Time to take up the pen and write your own story.
1. Follow all forum rules.
2. Have fun! Its the point right?
3. I am god here. My rule if final. This world is full of magic as well as steam punk technology. You may or may not find relics of the old world. The technology was past what it is currently. Imagine close to startrek worthy. Space age. But with the great washing, its mostly lost. If you need an idea of what the world is currently like, think bioshock infinte.
4. The world is pretty open ended, so go ahead and create creatures. Not many land forms exist any more on the world. Only the tips of mountains really remain. And the places where it is so cold that permafrost forms. People live there also.
5. Rule on making monsters. You can include almost anything, But try to keep away from demons and angels and stuff like that. Those dont much exist here. Any thing aquatic is great and almost anything that can fly is also awesome. I encourage making monsters. Post them here first to be approved. Then you can go ahead and include them in the world if you want! If you want it to be a pet, run it by me first.
6. Anything extra should be ran by me first!
Race: Naga/human (include place of birth. if you can. Make up a place if you want. And yes, you can be a human born in the naga cities. You'll only get a boost to swimming, extra breath time underwater, some knowledge of fish. But please note, Naga really detest humans. So consider that a strong trait in your character! It can also work vice versa. NAGA CAN SHED THEIR FINS AND WALK ON LAND AND WORK ON AIR SHIPS JUST FINE. THEY JUST REQUIRE LOTS OF WATER. SALT OR NOT DOES NOT MATTER TO THEM. EASY TO BE A NAGA LIVING AS A HUMAN. NOTE, SALT WATER MAKES YOU A TRUE NAGA AGAIN!)
Pets: (Please wait to have this filled later. PM me about this part. Other wise just leave empty)
Profession: (Sailor/navagator/fighter. Whats ur job or skills? That was a small list just as expample.)
Notes: (Anything extra. Just delete this if you dont need it.)
Here is a fugly drawing of the world. Whipped up in like 5 mins.
Three major cities on the islands. As islands, i mean island ships.
The largest is Candor. Center of the sea world for humans. Captial that is always on the move. Majorly for diplomatic and govornment dealings.
Usilid,The trade center of the islands.
Sjonin, Millitary and science center.
Air ships that are cities:
Avalor, capital city of the air world.
Jenisis, Science center of the air world.
Melanda, Millitary center of the air world.
Iglor, Trading center of the air world.
Atlantis, captial city of the sea world, science center.
Segora, Major city.
Morphis, Military city.
Ice cities on the frozen wastes:
Kildox, Capital city on Lagora.
Teredis, Captial city of Hermios.
The two islands are very dangerous and are filled with monsters.
All right! That should be everything! If i missed anything or you have questions, post here or PM me! I can't wait! Just one thing, every one will start out on a ship. But i'll give you the opprotunity to join an airship or go other places!

Sounds awesome, you must have put a lot of work into this.
Name: Jake Melthorn
Race: human, from Anchorage
Bio: Jake was born in Anchorage, a floating village. It was a ramshackle place, the center built from wood, the rest made from the bones of sea beasts. The people of Anchorage are descendants of the Azgorans, and they were a hardy folk, hunting the beasts of the deep for their meat, bone and hide. Jake's father was a gunsmith. He gained metal by trading with passing Sky Caravan's, and created guns for the hunters of Anchorage. But one day, on Jake's first hunt, the hunters found a small boat being attacked by a Sea Dragon. Inside the boat was a mysterious cargo, which Chief Bruvik immediately took for himself, hiding it from the rest of the village. Two days later, men from the Trading Council appeared with their questions, and mechanical servants. Jake didn't trust the men, and, while investigating them, got a peek at the mysterious package, which the men were taking from the chief under threat of killing everyone in the village. Jake's father, Lackheim, rounded up the villagers, and they killed the two men from the Council, but soon after, the village was bombarded by Council Mercenary ships. Jake was able to escape in the airship used by the councilmen, and ever since he's been trying to find out what the machine he found was, earning his keep as a mercenary, bounty hunter, and monster slayer.
Profession: anything he can find. He often works as a gunsmith, fisher, monster hunter, bounty hunter, or mercenary.
Notes: Jake uses a long Steam Rifle he calls Rienna. He also carries small bombs, a long harpoon that can extend and contract, a couple of knives, and a pair of goggles for keeping the water out of his eyes. He also has a diving suit, which allows him to stay underwater for about half an hour without needing to come up for air.
