This is a continuity I have worked rather... extensively on the last few years. I had a group running it, but they were claimed by the dastardly villain that goes by the name of "social life..." =.= I shake my fist at thee, social life!
At any rate... The continuity is based in a multiverse known as "Ona."
In reality, Ona was a massive creature lost in the void. It was extremely intelligent, strong, and with a brilliant imagination. The creature Ona's longing for another, anyone at all, grew in that darkness and it grew ill of mind. Ona tore itself apart physically and mentally, the resulting collapse in those energies exploding outward. [Yes, this is my Big Bang] It's intellect and reason faded into Order, creating the Lord Yurivoor and her realm of Anen. Strength and anguish boiled into Chaos and birthed Lord Ordavux [Pronounced Or-dah-vow] and his realm of Xaita [zay-tah]. Its hope and imagination became the forces of nature, Lord Vinavem and the realm of Etorra. These are the first Lords and, without knowing or understanding their purpose, began the creation of their realms and the creatures within, all the while bickering among one another and attempting to destroy the others to the point that they would soon stay far from one another.
A quick set of terms I use...
Lord: Eldergod, the first of the deities and the most powerful
Celestial: A Lord's most powerful race, usually first in their creation
Prime Celestial: First of the Celestials, a little stronger than the others
Multiverse: Containing Three main realms, the Shadow Rivers and Citis [The central realm]
Realm: Massive orb layered with different universes, functioning as dimensions of the same Realm. Very spaced out towards the outer layers, very compact toward the center. At its core pressure is massive and compacts both energy and mass, restoring these to the Lords and replenishing their abilities to create. Nothing is forever.
Shadow River: In a simple word, it is space. These rivers penetrate realms and fill in their spaces. Few can travel in this, save for Lords and Celestials
Yurivoor: Lord of Law, seeks to cleanse the multiverse of all she dubs corrupt...Appears as a female with the lower 'taur half of a bull, wings of an eagle and horns curled behind her head with a star burning between them
Ordavux: Lord of Chaos, seeks to devour... everything. All worlds, Lords, everything...Appears as an ever-changing mass of black scales, draconic features, bones tearing through his flesh and stuck in a mountain in his Domain from the "waist" down
Vinavem: Lord of Life, simply wants to be left alone... Appears as a massive serpent whose chest opens up into an orb of light, large fins along her back and four glowing eyes
Aminentus: Lord of Soul, seeks to maintain the balance of souls as well as the balance of the three main realms...Appears as a dragon/bovine mix [drovine] with chambered horns that curl along her jaw that glow acid green from their chambers and a massive maned tail with an axe at its end. She was born a mortal, but the Three came together shortly after the creation of Souls and, her soul having slipped into the Shadow Realm, ascended Amin into the Fourth Lord
Etorra: Realm of Life-Earth and our universe would be within this Realm, favored element being water
Xaita: Chaotic Realm, many concepts of Hell would be found here, favored element being fire
Anen: Orderly Realm, a few concepts of Heaven would be found here, favored element being air
Citis: Realm of Shadows and Soul, is one planetary body with three moons, hollow core which lies at the very center of the multiverse
Niquori: Shadow River between Xaita and Anen
Milen: Shadow River between Etorra and Anen
Vuurm: Shadow River between Etorra and Xaita
Shadow Realm: Consists of Citis and the three Shadow Rivers, considered the largest "Realm"
Yurivoor [Order, Angellic] -Illiwyn
--Commonly possessing wings and taur attributes
Ordavux [Chaos, Draconic] -Dravoccra
--Will eventually lead to the Dragon, though they themselves often shift in appearance
Vinavem [Nature, Elemental] -Y'tol
--Possess massive powers over the elements and taking their attributes for themselves, though are often plantlike
Aminentus [Soul, Reaper] -Torachraem
--Two forms of these, construct and ascended mortal...
---Malraem: Orbs of energy programmed with the task of collecting and delivering souls, touch the ground and construct their bodies from bone, gravel, ect.
---Aviir: Mortals approached by Aminentus to be ascended into the Torachraem and serve her in their afterlife
So that's a very skimmed summery of all that. Here's some races available to those who want to play them:
Onimet: Have the ability to shift between their spirit animal, half-human half-animal form [anthro], and human form
Itasehr: A subspecies of Onimet who are touched by the Shadow Realm before/during birth and are robbed of their human form and much control of their shifting. They appear as anthro for the majority of their lives until they hit puberty, which their transformations begin and it is quickly discovered that the shadows affect the size of their animal form. The animal form has a black pelt and patches of rock growths as a sort of armor as well as glowing eyes. They are commonly sought out by the Aviir as companions, as the Aviir have the ability to manipulate the shadows that the Itasehr are exposed to, allowing them to be a mount as well as a useful companion once taught how to control it.
^ That's the only one I'll get too extensive in right now...!
As for a character sheet...
--Appearance wise.. can be human, anthro, or other... If you want a special race to be brought in, shoot me a message and ask. I'll likely accept it.
Sub-Race [If Any]:
--Sub race would pertain to ascended characters such as the Aviir or lycanthropes or Itasehr, ect. as well as any other racial details... Same with the races, feel free to ask for details
Class[or general specialization]:
--Can be any kind from any planet you wish, otherwise ask for Lord-specific religions and sub-religions
--Low-level/minimal magic is allowed without asking as long as it is not OP'd. If you don't know, message and ask. Lord-Religion magic available upon asking
-Can be a fun little aspect... I.E., I once had a Dragon Lance kender character with an obsession for whistles. One could bribe her into doing anything if, say, the dwarf carved her a whistle from a dragonscale. These can hold magical traits, as well. The whistles were like wands and could cast a set amount of their spells. Had a whole necklace filled with them. Want one but aren't sure? Ask me and I'll happily come up with something! Perhaps I'll even hammer out a plot for said item... Never know :3
--Quirks, likes and dislikes, general behavior ect.
--Detailed or not, please include some information on what the character is wearing, hair/fur styles, eye color, handedness, whatever you can come up with, toss it in here!
--Wife, children, brothers, parents, pets, any of that.
--One or more of the deities your character could run into will have knowledge of your character simply from hearsay or observation. For example, Aminentus' eyes are every shadow across the multiverse, which is why she's normally rather statue-esk, being as she's not all "there" half the time. This tends to be rather important if such situations come up.
As well as anything else you would like to add.
You can either post these here or message them to me personally.
I'll leave this here for now.
There are so many plot lines I want to pursue with this. Any ideas, questions ect. are more than welcome! Thanks for reading.
