Anyone interested in a fantasy RP?
I'm very active, and you can usually expect fast responses.
I was thinking fantasy in terms of realms that you see in Dragon Quest, and Final Fantasy IX. I guess you cold say traditional fantasy with magic, classes and monsters.
The plot would also be traditional as a band of people fighting together against the main antagonist.
There will be a clear ending, but expect the RP to be long with a lot of scenarios and character development.
Legends speak of two worlds, two different planets coexisting side-by-side.
The planet of Vexeria was gifted in the art of magic, many of it's inhabitants had the powerful ability to cast elemental spells, healing powers, or summoning a formidable ally.
The planet of Zenith on the other hand, boasted talent in combat and weaponry. Zenithians are born with high endurance and strength, making them prime candidates for warriors.
Once every century, for a span of one month, a path between the two planets were formed, allowing access to one another. Every one hundred years, the planets would line up, and the Tower of Geld, rising from Zenith reached the lands of Vexeria. Although Vexerians and Zenithians led completely different lifestyles, it seems that they were friendly with each other, exchanging information and skill in their time of limited interaction.
According to legend, one day, a powerful Vexerian unleashed his wrath upon his home planet, crazed with the desire to control it. The Vexerians fought back with their own magic, but they weren't able to reach the crazed mastermind due to the ferocity of the enhanced monsters that now roamed the lands. the evil mastermind was cunning. Knowing the magical aptitude of his people, he created new breeds of monsters that were immune to magical attacks.
Many Vexerians were slaughtered, and for a brief amount of time, it seemed as if the inhabitants of Vexeria would be wiped out. However, in a stroke of luck, that year happened to be the 100th year when the two planets connected, allowing the Vexerians to enlist aid from their Zenithian allies.
In the short span of one month, the allies managed to keep the beasts at bay, and a group of three Zenithians and three Vexerians sealed the mastermind of the attack away in Vexeria. The six later became known as the Six Sages.
Although the mastermind was gone, Vexeria remained hostile. The enhanced monsters still remained, and they continued plaguing the land with their deadly attacks. The monsters multiplied, and eventually, they became too much for even the combined power of magical and physical attacks. The monsters have evolved, rendering many attacks against them futile. The Vexerians and the Zenithians were once again in danger.
In order to avoid annihilation, Zenithians welcomed their Vexerian friends to the planet of Zenith with open arms. The Vexerians immigrated to Zenith, leaving the once mighty planet of Vexeria in ruins.
The Tower of Geld was sealed off as well, once against by the combined powers of the Six Sages. In order to completely avoid the powerful monsters, none of the Vexerians could return home.The path to Vexeria has been permanently closed off, and eventually forgotten.
Thousands of years have passed since the Vexerians have moved to Zenith. The people barely remember the history of immigration, let alone the existence of another planet. All that remains are the whispers of a legend, echoes of a myth, and the shadow of the truth.
The word Vexeria, the race of Vexerians forgotten, the occasional trace of the name have been diluted by generations, the acknowledgement of the Vexerians have faded. However, they still remain in the shape of their descendents.
Mages and warriors mingle as if they were never divided. Why would they? The tales of another planet seems to be just a myth. The Vexerians faded into Zenithians, magic becoming a daily part of their life.
For thousands of years the Zenithians lived in harmony. Everyday, there were skirmishes with monsters, but it was manageable. Every day, many weapons were forged, many warriors trained, many mages studied.
Among the remnants of an ancient tale, a new one is about to emerge.
A descendent of the Six Sages has been murdered. Then another. Then another. When Elylia's brother was murdered by a mysterious figure, she had no idea why. Nobody did. Nobody remembers, or so it seemed. But someone does. And Elylia's going to find out who and why.
As Elylia journeys to find out the truth behind her brother's murder, she gets swept up in an ancient battle, dating back to the very days when Vexerians still existed on their home planet. Throughout her journey, she uncovers various cover-ups, unearths the very secrets of the world, and ultimately, the fate of the world lies on her shoulders when she discovers that what seemed to be the greatest threat, is actually only the beginning.
This synopsis is actually only the very beginning of my idea. I will probably elaborate more on this later, perhaps in an OOC post if enough people are interested. I have various parts of it planned out, and there are many twists within it that will blow your mind!!!
I would play Elylia, guiding the story for the most part. Like I said, I have various twists and plans in my mind, but most of the story will come from everyone's imaginations. I'm just there to nudge it in the right direction so this will eventually end.
If anyone is interested, please PM me! Once enough people would like to RP this, I will set up an OOC thread with more guidelines, information, character sheets, necessary characters, etc etc etc.
