Introduction

Htrea is a world similar in many ways yet different to Earth. Unlike our Earth, which has evolved technologically, Htrea has more magic and therefore shaped more by it. The dress is made up of animal skins and cloth, with stone and wood comprising many of the buildings.

Storyline

It has been five hundred years since the dragon wars, those living in Htrea have felt terror and death again: Maverick has arisen.

Using a gemstone the powers of which only he has grasped, Maverick has stolen the minds of those of his own race; the dark elves. Now, with his army made up of almost all the dark elf population, he reaches out from beneath the ground to concur the world above.

Races

Human: Most common race on Htrea next to elves and dragons. They have learned to develop magic that is lesser than an elf's or dragon's but is still powerful enough to make an impact.
Dragon: Most magical of the races, also one of the oldest. Their powers depend on their color. (ex: White is healing and/or wind, Black is shadow, Blue is water...etc.)
Elf: There are three types of elves. Wood elves, Dark elves, and High elves. Elves tend to live with their own kind, though in some small areas they have started to co mingle.
Demon: Third most magical race on Htrea, their powers depends on their 'type'.
Half Dragon: A mix between dragons and other humanoid races. The most common mix is dragon with human or wood elf.
Orc: One of the least common races, their kind were nearly wiped out during the dragon wars. Tend to keep to themselves, or live with Trolls.
Troll: Also one of the least common races, they are the 'vultures' of the land.
Vampire: There are two types of vampires. One type lives off of blood, they normally have red eyes and are weaker when out in daylight they don't need to sleep. The other kind don't need blood to survive, though they still drink it, they normally have blue eyes, and need to sleep.
Neko: A part cat, part human creature. They have recently appeared throughout the land, some believe that they used to be Nymphs.

Technology/Weaponry
There is no technology, everyone depends on the land and magic for resources.
Weapons consist of swords, daggers etc. There are no guns.

Religion
All people of Htrea pray to what they call the 'dragons of the sky'. They believe that these are what created their world, and what judges them when they die.
NOTE: Instead of heaven or hell, all living things believe that they go to the 'everlasting skies' when they die.

Politics
There are a few kingdoms spread out through the land. Here are their locations, and their respective rulers.

Nogard- A dragon/half dragon/Human kingdom near the mountains of shadow. Durg is the king of this land, his symbol is a bright red gem that rests in his crown.
Nad- A elven kingdom in the forest of Nad. Lakar is the king of this land, his symbol is a gold leaf.
Nimad- A Orc/Troll/Demon kingdom near the ocean of Tralet. Aylia is the queen of this land, her symbol is of Tralet, one of the five.
Eqatue- A Vampire/Neko/Human kingdom in the Valley of Arian. Evia is the queen of this land, her symbol is the sun.
Retan- A Human kingdom in the Valley of Retan, near the ocean of Tralet. Araj is the king of this land, his symbol is a horse running in the wind.

There are a few lesser kingdoms, that have no set names or rulers. These are places where all races can live.

Travel
People use horses, ferries(small boats or platforms made of wood) and wagons to travel.

History
This is the story that the elders tell to younger generations:

The great dragons of the sky were once creatures of flesh and blood, as you and I are. They came to this place and found it drik-without life. The five decided to create life for this place they had found. Such was within their power, so they did so.
Hartier-the dragon of earth, stomped upon the soot and rock they found. The shakes he created caused mountains to rise and cracks to appear.
Tralet-the dragon of water, cried upon the cracks her brother had created. Water flowed into these cracks, and nourished the dry land.
Retan-dragon of wind, blew out in a mighty huff at the sight of what had become. Wind blew, sweeping the dust away, and allowing plants to grow.
Ertier-dragon of fire, blew his flames all around. The flames hardened the soil, so that it could not turn to dust again.
Arian-dragon of light, flew into the sky with a mighty roar. Light came to the world, and the five were proud of what they made.

These five dragons roamed this new land, but soon got bored with each other, and started to fight. They argued that there was not enough life on their new home, and whether or not to create fellow creatures to roam the lands with them. Soon they saw reason and combined their powers once again. This time they made the creatures that walk the earth. When they had finished, they were again proud of what they had made. Years passed, and the dragons grew older. They soon agreed that they should return to their home in the sky, and keep a eye on their creations. So the five flew away, and created the everlasting skies; where those creatures they had made could join them when their veras-or life, was over.

Years later, the dragons started a war against those of other races. This is the most famous war in the history of Htrea, for the high number of deaths it caused. The war raged for many years, during which Durg (the king of dragons) watched nonchalantly. Finally, a band of four adventurers—a wood elf, a dragon, a nymph and a demon—set out to make the king of dragons see sense. After reaching the mountain in which Durg lived, they managed to persuade him to call the dragons home, and thus the war ended.

Mya looked between Anya and Jabez. "I'll travel with and Anya away from here. Jabez, you can cover our trails through the woods in case there is some unknown danger."

Elnin hacked his way through the forest, spinning his bow left and right in an effort to open a path for himself through the forest that was rapidly darkening. He pushed on using only his sense of direction to depend upon; no inner voice spoke to him, no God guided him, no Sun aided him in his search for an enemy that had quickly become his friend. A flock of birds chattered noisily above, as though watching him trying to wriggle his way out of the predicament he was in. That managed to make his mood even worse.

He stopped suddenly. Had he heard something? Staying still as stone, he failed to catch the sound again.

The wind blew again, and with it came the sound he had thought he had heard: the sound of a crowd, perhaps cheering or talking, he didn't know. He turned towards the sound, and just pushed on, hoping against hope that he would end up somewhere amongst the army so many had come to fear.

Durg started laughing, blood bubbling out of his mouth. He had been left to his own resources, which amounted to nothing. There might be a way to get loose...but it would be tricky, and Elnin wouldn't like one of the steps to doing so.

Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

I'm moving, so won't be able to post as often until I get net hookup for new house.


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Tis allright, I'm not being super strict on when you can post, seeing as my net keeps getting cut off randomly by the people fixing the road by my house.


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

ok edited details for Mya...sorry for the mix up. :/


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

I'm so sorry i haven't posted guys, i've been crazy busy! I'll make sure i make time to post tomorrow! Sorry! x


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

ah...well there aren't any islands on the map.....


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Oh sorry. I took the info from birdguard's character profile. She said she lived on an island off the coast.


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

RainWish- Eqatue(you said Equate, so I'm guessing this is what you meant) is a city, not a continent


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

It's all right, it may look like we posted a lot, but we haven't even left the inn yet.


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

I'm so sorry! I have been at a conference for the past few days without internet connections! Please give me a day or too, I really want to remain in this RP! I will post ASAP


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Ah me, i just could not resist to add Durg into the mix ID


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Maybe...like I mentioned before the gem doesn't work on everyone. Mostly on people with weak spirits or wills.


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

I quite like the idea that Elnin and Feran head off to try and destroy the gem, get close to doing so, but then get taken over by Maverick (because they're elves)

Anya and Gustav find this out when the dark elves attack Nogard.

Just an idea :)


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Very interesting....wish i could make a moving Avatar


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

So, what do you people think of my new user pic? Pretty snazzy, if I do say so myself. :P


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Post edited, and now one submitted.

And somehow I'm still hungry after a massive meal. :/


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

noppa, has to be you to edit it.


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Alrighty then. But, since you're the GM, couldn't you just delete it?


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Its all right, just erase one of the posts, leaving it blank


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Woops... Double post. Sorry. My internet's freaking out since there's a thunder storm going on right now. ^-^'


Re: [OOC] Htrea- Rise of Maverick

Cool. Cool.

I'm just chilling out, and listening to music, personally.
