As you walk through the center of whatever 'SG' you are in you notice a man cloaked in shadows standing at a desk made up of some sort of wood from the world below, as it is twisting and moving as if it is alive. there are papers on the desk, which are weighed down by a small silver cross.The man begins to speak to the crowd around him in a loud, booming voice. "A dark evil that was once cast out, has slowly crept it's way back into those who are weak of heart, and has manifested so much that it is a grave threat to the world. It mutates almost everything it touches except a select few of us for unknown reasons. There are those who got infected but for some reason it stopped halfway through, leaving them with defects that make them faster, stronger, more cunning then the average human. These traits are passed down through generation after generation. However we need the help of all that we can get. Those touched by the night and those not. For our enemy is a several millennium old one. Our enemy is those that have lost their minds to the darkness. Our enemy is those that have passed on from our world, but have been brought back. And Our enemy is those of us that have fallen the the Darkness's tricks and incitements, so it could very well be the person you are sitting next to, or the person you loved for 20 years. You can call me "Shadow" for that is what I am. I am recruiting only those with the most strongest of hearts, Those who are smarter then the rest, and those that can't be simply drug into the Night's realm easily. I'm calling upon men, women, those that have been morphed, those that want revenge. I'm calling upon any that will come to my aid in this fight for our futures!" The man sits down at the desk with an audible sigh before continuing. Please if you are interested Take a paper, fill it out and join me at Sentinel. I will be waiting. In an instant the man is gone, and the desk is a dull grey iron desk, however the papers and the cross are still there.
Leviticus: The land that this story is centered in. It is a massive land that has long sense been abandoned. It is war torn and mutated with the exception of a few hidden places. On the surface there are the relics of the nations past. Towering skyscrapers, Massive fields filled with skeletons of iron and brass monsters, and millions of unmarked graves. Massive scars line the earth where magic and technology met on the battlefield.
Sky Gardens: Floating monstrosities of Iron, Brass, Magic, and Steam. These massive cities house the worlds remaining untainted or slightly tainted population.
NSG: Floating masses of natural untainted or tainted land that due to the Nights influence, lifted from the ground and has stayed afloat.
Ether: This worlds magic source/power. The more Ether you have, the More powerful magic you may cast. Ether can be increased through training and or other...occult means.
More will be added:
Sentinel: The capital. Home to the king, his court, the church, and the mainstay for the military. It is 5000 square miles and has technicians working and repairing it daily. It is the single most defended SG in this world. Constantly patrolled by aircraft. It has a 50 meter thick wall with a particle cannon placement every 50 feet. Nothing gets in the 80 ports around the city without an official escort, search, and questioning.
X: A Sg long forgotten by the world. It is said that it crashed into Leviticus many years ago. All other information about this Sg has been wiped from all official records.
more will be added as the rp goes on.
Human: Average in every way. They can adapt to nearly any situation put in front of them, and they can learn rather quickly about any skill. Well as long as they set their mind on it. They can become Mages, Technicians, Warriors, and just about anything else they could dream of.
Elf: Slightly taller then the average human, they have pale skin, white or blonde hair, piercing green eyes, and these indistinguishably pointy ears. The night made these humans have a much more higher 'ether' capacity and a much better sight/hearing ability thus they are more talented mages or marksmen compared to regular humans
Dwarf: Shorter then their untainted counterparts. These humans are stubly, hardheaded, and smelly drunkards. Their arms are as think as an airships armor, and their skulls harder then one, they are extremely hard to get along with, however they make fine good blacksmiths, Warriors, or Technicians due to the fact that they have a natural adeptness to building and crafting. I'd suggest making these guys your friends, cause you don't want to be in their grip when they are angry at you...or actually...you never want to be in their grasps.

Name: Mathias 'J' Burke
History: Mathias or Matty, was born on X, the day before it disappeared off the map. The moment he was born his parents rushed him out of the SG and to a pirate stronghold known as Kingler's Garden. There he was raised by his uncle and aunt, the famous Privateer killers, Phobia and Phobos. He was raised in the art of pirating and killing and frankly he enjoyed. At least until he, along with his uncle and aunt were captured by the Military and imprisoned on a plethora of charges. Thankfully no charges could be held against the 6 year old Matty, and he was let go and put in the care of none other then the King's right hand man. Jack Rackram. A war veteran of atleast 88, who has his own fleet to command. So thus Mattias' story on the winds continued, but this time as a pirate hunter. By age 16 he owned/ commanded his own ship the SGA Phobos, and his name was well known and feared. At age 20 he had discovered a island chain of NSG's that were not tainted at all and led an expedition into these uncharted lands. He went in with 10,000 men, and only 300 came out with him. No one told what happened in those lands, but they will forever be marked as 'No mans lands' Today only he and 14 others out of the initial 300 are still alive, and they are all under his command as bounty hunters.
Job/occupation.Bounty hunter captain.
Vehicle type: The first and only Sentinel class Liberator:
Firepower: 3 sets of Dual Ether Cannons: Ether cannons Condense Ether in the surrounding air, resulting in a hypercompacted shell that is highly explosive. These babies can tear a hole in almost any ship with ease. 50 .75 mm Tiberius sound cannons, which use sound vibrations to fire waves that both cut through shields like a bullet to paper and scramble all tech on board. 2 Rail Cannons. These use live ammo, but are very effective as they super charge metal with an electromagnetic current, reversing and stabilizing polarities before firing them at speeds greater the speed of sound, and with an off-set of about 2 inches every 10 miles. Sadly these weapons do very little against a good military class shield. The Phobos also hosts a powerful shield and cloaking array, making it one of the only vessels to be sought after by both the government (to reclaim it) and pirates (to capture it)
Captain: Mattias 'J' Burke
Crew 15 including the captain and his officers (they can handle the entire ship themselves.) But they hold about 1000 on board at all times for missions and the such
Legal/Illegal: Legal at first till he stole it, now the most sought after government ship.
Sect: Company: Mattias' Hunters.
