The Razing of Ash and Dust
"That which is…will not.”~Ortuis, The Lost.
Lazy explanation: Basically, you are a colonist in a strange land, being guided by an equally strange technologically/magically advanced race. Your motherland was nothing but cruel to you, this new land, this new home, is a place of hope...hopefully (:3). The past of your people was harsh, bleak, and allegedly hopeless, but the future seems to hold promise in the form of the new continent.
Explore, make a new home, and perhaps seek out the reason behind the bleak past of your people. That's the basic run down.
Longer explanation: A high fantasy RPG focused around the migrating settlers from the continent of Echria'el who have, for the past couple centuries, been plagued by natural disasters, strange phenomena, and the horrors of an unfair world. These individuals, seeking a respite from the horrors of their homeland, trudged out and eventually received word of a second continent, which they took to called Jshitan Echri, 'The New Continent' or 'The New Home'. Upon discovering this, the survivors of the numerous calamities that have befallen the people of Echria'el take to sea bound vessels and escape their cruel motherland.
Accompanied by the ancient, Ortuis "The Lost", they arrive on the New Continent. This is the starting place of the players, where your characters are arriving on the coast of the new continent to meet their guide, a man of a strange race that hails from the continent you call new.
The conflict and purpose of this RP is to explore and make a new home of this strange land. It is an odd mixture of colonization, exploration, discovery, with magic, fantasy, and a proper amount of...well, gore and horror.
The world of Echri --as this is the name of the planet- holds a great deal of secrets and is not at all what it seems. It is up to the players and their characters to discover just what these secrets are before it becomes too late and the next 'wave' begins.
