In the universe, there are many forces. The two balancing forces that did a dance between the cosmos are the Holy Light and the Sacred Darkness. Over the billions of years, galaxies formed, worlds were created and eventually sentient beings formed. However, perhaps one of the greatest creations from the union was the birth of magic. Magic became a fundamental force on its own and worked to help advance life. To guide the universe through these times, the forces created avatars. The avatar of the Holy Light was Daema while the avatar of the Sacred Darkness was Sevuch. The two spread across the universe and helped life cultivate through the power of magic.
Life grew and eventually much of the cosmos lived in peace and harmony. However, not all was well. Unlike those of the ethereal plane, the mortals were susceptible to corruption. Order and Chaos did not always play well and the two would take on different forms and appearances to try and dominate the other. It wasn’t long before Daema and Sevuch stepped in. However, not even they remained untouched.
It was stated that despite their victory, nothing was ever the same for Daema and Sevuch. It was believed that Sevuch starting to become corrupt. That the Sacred Darkness was becoming corrupted. Over time, much of the universe became shrouded in the darkness that was losing its kindness. Eventually, the war between was inevitable. Worlds united under their different gods and fought. Worlds shattered, galaxies were destroyed and the amount of life lost was beyond measurement.
Eventually, the final attack led by them atomized everything. The strike caused by them was known by many names, but its current name was the Big Bang. The universe was reset and much of what previously existed was lost. Daema and Sevuch were too tired. Most of the magic spent was used to recreate the universe and were the only beings left.
It was then that Daema decided to leave the future to the hands of the mortals. She used Sevuch’s magic against him and by combining the light and the dark, she took the primordial elements and transformed them into superweapons. They were wielded by chosen warriors, people who survived because of their moral strength. Using it, they assisted in sealing Sevuch into a small body orbiting an infant planet, forever to slumber.
However, much of Sevuch’s darkness remained and so Daema spread her light and she sealed herself with the weapons inside the world to slumber while her spirit fused with the nearby star. This world was Earth, 4.6 billion years ago, the body was the Moon and the star was the Sun. The survivors settled on the planet and manage to survive despite its young state. However, it was revealed that Sevuch’s forces were not finished.
They came back and fought against many of the life forms there. These ancient civilizations were in ruin, but the people would not die. Eventually, the dark forces resorted to banishing many of the races. However, their children survived and bred with the one race immune to the banishment, humanity. Much of the structures were destroyed, but the temples survived and vanished, hiding away the secrets.
The survivors became god-like in the eyes of primitive man and taught skills and to make civilization, resulting in the 2nd age of civilization on Earth. Some of the more influenced civilizations were those of Ancient Egypt and Mesoamerican. These survivors spread their knowledge, but soon they died out and the secrets of the truth were hidden. The last survivor, the one known as the Prophet, was born of mysterious circumstances and attempted to spread the secrets, but the knowledge was distorted and after his death, it was the end of an age.
Despite the attempts to make the great secrets lost, they still survived and one was on the Catalyst. The awakening of the ancient weapons. Using humanity’s current calendar, in the transitioning to the Winter of two thousand and twelve revolutions after the death of the Prophet, the spirit of Daema will awaken the weapons. Much of humanity, those who carry the blood of the ancients will vanish, kept in a limbo until their ancestry is revealed, leaving few survivors. However, those who inherited the will of the warriors from long ago will be called upon. They will roam the world and free Daema, so she can finally finish her duty.
You are one of these six heroes.
You are one of the few who can still wield magic and be called the Magi. When the Trials to decide the fate of the world and the cosmos begin, you will find yourself alone with your fellow heroes. But fear not. Spirits long dormant will awaken and guide you through your quest.
However, young heroes, be wary. History is written by the winners and not all is clear as you commence your journeys.
This is a brave new world.
Welcome everybody! This is DVB here with my RPG. This will be for me and six other people so first come, first serve. First of all, the weapons. They will initially appear as gems as a dormant state before awakening in their weapon forms. They all share designs of ancient ruins accompanied by geometric designs and circles.
They are the:
The Garnet Fire Sword
The Amber Earth Hammer
The Topaz Thunder Lance
The Emerald Wood Axe
The Sapphire Water Staff
The Amethyst Air Bow
The Diamond Cosmic Wand
These weapons rely on the user’s creativity and out the box thinking, allowing for different methods of attacking, such as the Sapphire Staff capable of wielding ice and the Air Bow wielding smoke. Research your element and come up with interesting things.
Second, the environment. The world will mainly look deserted with only hints of ruin. There will be people, but much of the population has vanished. However, as you grow close to the location of the temples, the surroundings will look more arcane and mystical. The temples themselves are hidden, but when revealed, they are large and filled with puzzles.
Furthermore, there are the monsters. The forces take on the shapes of figures from different mythologies, depending on the surroundings, so expect some examples of research.
As for the time period, well, we will be doing frequent time skips. The beginning of this quest takes place the 22 of December, 2012. So it is the middle of winter, but will move on to Spring and Summer and Autumn.
Lastly, the characters. We will all be with one another, so we should all get along. Romance is encouraged so try and settle on something beforehand if you can. Power of Love tends to help out a lot here.
I will edit in or edit out information in case I missed things that I realize over time. We will begin the RPG with you at your homes, more or less counting down the minutes until Dec 21, 2012. At midnight, everything changes and you and your fellow heroes will find yourselves in a dream being explained all of this.
It would be best if we were all in one state as to make this easier, though we will work things out. A big rule is to participate as much as you can. I am giving you guys two weeks before having to off your character. This is IF you do NOT inform of that you will be gone. If you do inform me, we will have to elaborate and make arrangements.
I believe that is all for now.
