Nightmare Tide is a combat-focused fantasy RP. Wandering off into the woods in pursuit of your destiny is not the plan here; you, through selection or by choice, have decided to take up the mantle of Eternal Guardian and defend the material world from the forces of the immaterial one.
The material world is your average medieval realm (but not very fantasy; there is little magic in the material plane, in fact), but your characters, having already entered the Portal, will never see their land again. Instead, they exist in limbo; a small pocket dimension between the material plane and the immaterial one. Their purpose is simple; don't let anything get through to the real world, or else the darkest beings of nightmares will swarm over their homelands, ending all life.
The characters will enter the Limbo with the abilities of any average person; sort of like level-one characters. However, they will grow stronger over time; the limbo dimension is basically the ultimate magical construct, and it is slowly decaying, flooding everyone within with the energies of creation itself.
With every wave of nightmarish creatures, I will grant your characters extra abilities depending on who they start out to be; you will have no control of how your character grows more powerful after the first character creation, besides magical items you can loot.
So! Who wants to help kick ass?
