Floating in the Anima(Any ideas for a better name?) : OCC

Context: The Anime is the heart of the World it is a plain made of pure magic and at it hearts lies the heart of all worlds because although there are many worlds there is only one anime.The anime is a place of spectacular beauty beyond the perception of the human race. The Ralei a elvish race were the first of the peoples of the word to enter the anime and although this gave them great power in principal the Ralie would never use it. For the anime was a holy place and to use its power to change the worlds around it would be the greatest sin and folly. The Ralie being a race of scolars wrought down there knoledge of the anime and stored it in a great library. The Library was a great building of fortified stone as the Ralie believed in the protection of knoledge. Then the a great tragerdy happened the Ralie were wiped out by the anger of the Church of the Ultimaecon. The councils of the Ralie seeing there destruction acted to stop the Church gaining control of the heart of the worlds by burying the library in the anime of the worlds. This made sure that the knoledge was safe from thoughs who would misuse it. But because the Ralie at thier heart were a optimistic race they left a single entrance to the library a bloodstone with great magical potential that could be shifted into a portal to the library. This Blood stone was give to a family of mercenaries with a spell on it allowing only an heir of the mercenaries who was truelly selfless to use it. The Ralie believed that the greed of the merceneries would only subside in a better world a world more ready for the wonders of the Anime. The Church never forgot the library of the Ralie and still looks for a way in. For they need the power of the anime to make up for the fact that thier god was a complete fiction. With the power of the anime the church would have all the godly power it needed to rule for eternity. The Ralie were a benevolant people who refused to use there power for destruction but the church wouldn't have such moral scruples and the destruction they could cause within the anime especially if the reached the heart could cause the end of creature.

Marror the Mercenary holds upon him a jewel of an amazing colour ruby red and unbelievably deep. It was no use to him so he pawned it and got a few dollars for it but has bad luck ever since. The church is looking for him and he is being tracked by people who at ther nicest could be called freedom fighters and at there worst fowl murders and he hasn't a clue why. He has avioded war for ten years but it seems someone in the halls of power is forcing back into to his warriors role and into the chaos of battle.

Story: The Battle of Sinar was a bloody engagement between two young and blood thirsty genrals. On a side note the war was caused because of a disaggrement between the two about thier shared child religion, having parents from both the balck and white can cause some problems especially when the father was a priest-solider of the white and your mother is a leader of the black hoard best fo ten thousand. The engament ended when the white broke and fled. Although the white were greater in number the black had fought with a visiousness that was unbelievable to any who hadn't seen it.That had been the end of another foolish attempt by the white to crush permantly the black. The white were lead by a genrals whos fury blinded him allowing the whole bloody event to happen. The Battle of Sinar was also the beggining of our tale. It was a start to many things becuase many of the heroes whom rose from the mess were influential to the future. But the battle also caused the search for the great stone again. The white were reminded of thier mortality and needed a victory, the search for the key was one that would be glorius. The search was in itself unimportant it happened so amny times before to be particulary impressive. But it did cause the sold bloodstone to increase in value tenfold. The trader told the league all and then had an unfortunate accident leaders of the white didn't pay for jewels. So the white league knew that a mecenary needed to be found and were better to find a mecenery than a war. Obviously the black soon found out about the mecenry. Both Genrals were charged with finding the mecenary and so heroes were found to accompany both genrals in the doing of there duty. From this point the roleplay beggins.

The Sides

White League- The Churchs enforcesment league, they take care if the nasty buisness of running an impieralistic religion, kidnapping, murder and theft nothing would be too much for the league if ordered by the superiors.

Black League- The anti-church movement, at times rufeless and cruel they would have no problem raising an entire village to gain a mediocre advantage over the white league.

Temparance League- A non violent league that everyone else hates, there only importance is there link to the Ralie and there spy network which is massive.

Outsiders- Killer, robbers, thieves the prey on the society they hate and there totally rutheless or at least that what the white say. The outsiders are suffers always being preyed on by all groups this beacaues they believe that only by being outsiders will they be free of corruption.

Mecenaries- Usually greedy outsiders who wish to become rish, ther services are often used by the white and on ocassion the the temparance league who use them as body guards because they are forbidden to fight themselves.

Species
Summoner- Dark and white there the same thing but one has church support and the others don't. Summons can call demons and faires.

Sandikes- Sandikes are the dead heros of the past whos souls have been implaced within a magical construct thus enlonging there life at the price of there freedom and feelings they are the elite nasty of the white.

Deminarcem- the dark leagues way to combat sandikes they are humans who have had a demon summoned into there body. If done right i can leave a man with the demonic powers and his mind. If done wrong the revese can happen.

Ralei- Elves and scolars though there are no pure blood ralie left there are many half bred Ralie and they are wise and are gifted with long lives if not entirnity.

Drawfs make up the majority of the outsiders and just wished to be left alone.

Humans make up the church and the black league as the church refuses to admit that any race but human exist and has been known to burn any evidence that ther wrong.

This RP is open for all if you don't wan't to join i would be interested in peoples opinions on the concept. If anyone has suggestion on increasing the merit of this thread your opinion would be welcomed. This RP is set in a world quite unsimilar to our own, the battle isn't between good or evil the battle isn't over land but about the hearts and souls of all people. All sides are big and complex and contain both elements of good and bad and even a victory for the most benevolant side might not bring an end to suffering.

Here are the roles that need to be filled
White GenraL
Black Genral
Outsider
Mecenary
Member of the temperance League

Please send in any bios if you are interested and if you think any other charcters would be worthwhile send in a bio.

This is the bio of my character

Name: Asmodeus Seraphim
Race: Half human, half Ralie

Appearance: His height is aproximatly 6ft 5 he is slender but has strong hands. He has long hair which has been dyed black but which natural colour is blonde. His eyes are multi- coloured one being the blue of his elvish heritage and the other brown from his father.

History: He is the last blood desendant of the Ralie and even he is a paltry in comparison with the real thing.He hides himself and him identity form the world. He has know knoledge how his line survived the purgess but from what he has read of it has filled with hate. The two things that keep him alive are his duty to protect the key holder and when he was ready to guide him and his dream of assasinating the high priest of the white. His Ralie heritage also makes him despise this dream so slowly he is going mad. He is currently in Sinar acting as adviser to the blacks leader by commmision.

Weapon
He carries the cerimonal bow that his race used to hunt for food and he was good with it. But when he came down to it he prefered close range combat with his claymore. A claymore is a heavy sword.

hey, Adamremasters (can I call you Adam?)

I've read through the posts in this thread so far, and the post in the IC and this RP sounds quite interesting. I would be interested in joining. The storyline is still a little bit unclear to me, though. Could you provide a basic outline of the plot, perhaps?

I may have a thief for you :P :wink:

A clear plot line then:

The Evil Religion destroys a race of elves.
These Elves have knoledge of a great powers of creation and destruction.
They hide the power they make a key that only works when the seekers motives are selfless.
They make sure only the most selfish people could use it, mecenries.
The religions want that power so often violently seek it.
The Religion is the equivalent to the big bad emprie and so wants to crush all that oppose it even though they are the strongest. They do this through there army which they call the white league. The other leagues formed after to fight them.
Both sides want power to destroy others so they both want the Key and to be the first people to open it.
They both send armies after the person who sold part of the key to see if they can get the rests of it and become supreme rulers.
The mecenrary who sold the key dind't know its value.

Sub Plot: Armies of too leagues have battled black league won but both armies suffered thousnads of casulties and heroes arose amongst the soliders. One of the causes of the battle was the child of the opposing genrals education and beliefs because both genrals were finatical in there views which were totally opposed an unfortuantate love triangle cost lives. Both genrals are sent in the pursuit of the key and probably will meet again causing sparks to fly.

PS Adam is Fine.
