The World of Sensou
The world of Sensou is a large world plagued by war. The world has been split into many different nations, and the lack of unity has led to thousands of innocent deaths. To make matters worse, a nation called the Senshi have traveled from distant lands across the Arcane Ocean to invade and conquer territory. With the nations seperated by hate and war, the Senshi have had no problem outnumbering our armies and crushing us. The entire Southern Continent of Sharoia has nearly been completed conquered, and the other Continents may fall soon!
In a sprawling hope to find a way to unite the world once more, the King Hafin al' Donher has gathered a mass of treasure hunters, glory-seekers, and other adventurers to seek out the Summon Guardians of the Seals--13 magical creatures who dwell in the seals that bind the worlds. Appointed to their task, the hunters began their search for the 13 Guardians who held our world together, but none returned. In desperate hopes of finding someone a hunter so brave--so skilled, that they would be able to survive long enough to save the world from the Senshi, the King send out an edict that any man or women who thought himself a grand hunter and/or warrior must come to him. Will anyone be able to brave the world's evils and find the 13 Guardians before it is too late?
1. Follow the basic Role Play Gateway rules.
2. Keep things decent. I don't want any mature content at all (No language, intimicy or anything that could potentially scar a child...)
3. Be fair to the other players. No god-modding, no auto-hitting, no perfect characters, no controlling other peoples characters, no ignoring other player's actions and no descriminating.
4. No public arguments or flame wars, at all! I don't want this RP breaking apart for stupid reasons.
5. No amazing surprises that could alter the story. Keep to the basic plot, and let me do the suprising.
6. Magic is welcome, but no summoning a powerful storm of fire that kills every Senshi in the world. Magic is draining work, after all. Also, no super powerful invincible characters.
7. If I haven't approved your character, you aren't playing. Simple as that. Post the sheet here in the OOC and I'll approve it, or deny it. No arguments or retorts.
8. If you don't want to use one of the premade species, then send a request to me via-PM.
9. Don't question my decisions. I will accept your oppinion and take it into recognition, but that's about it. I am the GM, remember that.

Physical Strength: Above Average
Magical Strength: Average
Appearance: Depends on the parental appearances and the genes. They can be tall, short, heavy, light and anything in-between. Some believe they are a mix of Elven Blood and Dwarven Blood.
Life Span: 1-120 Years.
History: The human race has not lived on Sensou for as long as the Elves and the Dwarves, but they are now the dominent ruling species. Most of the continents are ruled by Human Kings, and the Humans have strong cities and towns almost every. They have a large amount of hospitality for strangers, and are usually kind except when threatened. Some are more corrupt then others, but most have strong morales. They are heroic, and civilized most of the time, but there are a few nomadic tribes living in the lower points of the earth.
Physical Strength: Below Average
Magical Strength: Extremely Strong
Appearance: Elves are tall, extremely tall, and usually are slim and elegant-appearing. They usually have oddly colored hair such as white, blue, red, or green and have long, tilted eyes and long pointed ears. They usually dress in nature-colored clothing and lack extravagant jewelry. In old age, they show no extreme signs of decay or aging.
Life Span: 1-Infinity (Elves are immortal spiritually, but if their bodies are destroyed they too shall die.)
History: The elves were the first race to come across the Arcane Ocean and build homes on the eastern continents. Though they were not the native race of the land, they instantly began acting like it was their property and this infuriated the native dwarves. War broke out between the species, and this in-turn created a life-long hatred between dwarf and elf. Once the human species took control of most of the already built Elven cities, the Elves fleed into the forests to avoid conflict with the Humans, and that is where they continue to live. In secret. There are no nomadic tribes when it comes to the Elves. They are creative and love the arts. They also are extremely powerful with magic. They are strong willed, but are weak when it comes to physical labor--That is why they use magic--and physical combat. They are a force to be reckoned with at distances, but in melee-combat they are a disappointment. They love nature and live in forests. They also have many tame animals as pets--such as wolves, bears, hawks, and other wild-beasts.
Physical Strength: Strong
Magical Strength: Extremely Low
Appearance: The Drago are a reptillian race of strange creatures. They can come in any shape or size and some have even been seen that resemble snakes and have no arms or legs. They can come in any color of scales, and, depending on the mother and father, some have even been born with wings and the ability to breathe fire. The species originated from an unknown country, and usually live in hot, dry places. They are rarely seen anywhere else, and when they are seen they are a strange sight. They are usually covered in tribal tattoos, and their black unblinking eyes seem to stare into your soul.
Life Span: 1-200
History: Not much is known except that they came from a distant land, and are not very kind to any race except for their own. They live in tribes that are spread across the world of Sensou, and they are constantly having internal conflict.
Physical Strength: Strong
Magical Strength: Below Average
Appearance: The Dwarf species are short, and wide. They wear long beards that usually are braided, and that hang below their knees, and wear thick, and rough clothing. They have pale-skin from lack of sunlight, and they are extremely brawny (Brawny = Muscular). Since they rarely use magic for anything but enchanting ores and weaponry, they have not acquired the elegance that comes with magical skill.
Life Span: 1-Infinity (Like the Elves, they can only die by physical harm.)
History: The native species of Sensou, they were quickly forgotten as the Elves and Humans began inhabiting their homeland. The dwarves are creatures of stone who live beneath our feet in cities of rock and iron. They are amazing forgers and have used their weapon-smithing skills to help them win wars. They hate the Elves for forcing them to flee to the underground world, but most fueding now only consists of Clans fighting each other for power. They are rarely seen above ground, and the entrances to their kingdoms are hidden exceedingly well. The current king, King Dobrana, plans on negotiating with the humans above ground to make some sort of pact that will allow them to return to the surface world, but there has been no communications of late.
Physical Strength: Perfect
Magical Strength: Below Average
Appearance: Oger appear just to be enormous men with large noses, mouths and eyes the size of tea-pots. They are extremely muscular, and have deep, loud voices. Despite their aggressive appearances, though, the Oger species is quite placid.
Life Span: 1-900
History: Where they came from, no one knows, but the Oger live in magical groves called Life Harbors where nature literally is alive, and peace is common. There is not much known about Ogers except that they use their small ability of magic to heal and cause nature to grow faster and stronger, and there has only been a few wars that the Oger fought in. Though they will never be thought attractive, they have beautifal souls that long for peace and tranquility. They are slow to anger, and believe that haste only leads to foolish decisions but if they are attacked they will defend themselves. They are very secretive, as well, and usually keep to themselves.
Name: Fairy, Pixy
Physical Strength: Extremely Low
Magical Strength: Extremely High
Appearance: Small and palm sized, both are of the same race but of different appearances. Fairies appear as tiny, winged humans with long pointed ears and beautifal appearances, but Pixies simply appear as small glowing orbs of light that change color with each emotion. Fairies and Pixies are both extremely mighty when it comes to using magic, but their small size makes them incredibly easy to...well...step on if in melee combat.
Life Span: Unknown
History: The race of Fairies and Pixies have been known to be might magicians and grand pranksters, but that is really the only knowledge known about them. They are also very energetic, and joyful, but their lives are secretive and no one truly knows where to find a Hollow--which is the name of a Pixy or Fairy village. History has forgotten them, and most people believe them to be nought but myths.
Physical Strength: Average
Magical Strength: Average
Appearance: These creatures are somewhat smaller than humans, averaging at about 4'10", and are always traveling about. They don't really like to stay in one place too long and can be seen with a traveling staff. On the whole they are very much like humans, with appearances varying according to genes, but are shorter
Life Span: 1-160 Years.
History: They originated in the forests and the nearby plains, but soon felt the urge to travel to new places. As young ones, many feel an 'itching of the feet' if you will, and decide to strike out on their own. Now, their forgotten cities lie almost abandoned as none feel the urge to return home. They never really fought in any wars unless personally choosing to do so, and never want to kill without having a very good reason. Now they just wander around to different cities, some as traders and some as just travelers.
