Introduction

Seventeen Years Ago

The elder Elf Mage gazed into the night sky and out upon her home land. Her time was near its end. Her apprentice stood beside her, a young and bold elf who made her proud to know she would rise to save their race once she passed on. Times were difficult now. The humans had taken control of Nardragelen. Their ruler, King Maedil, was corrupting their minds and making them believe the Elves were the enemy. But in truth, if it were not for the Elves, the King would have no power. For the King stole the Elven Magic thirty years ago. He promised to unite the two races, but once in his possession, the King turned against the Elves. Making them slaves to the human race.

The Elves needed a savior among them but so far, none have come. The Elder gazed into the sky and suddenly, clenched her heart and crumpled to the ground. Her apprentice rushed forward, but it was too late. Nothing could be done for the dying Mage. To the apprentice's surprise, however, her Master felt no fear. Instead the old and wrinkled elf smiled.

"Our saviors have come. Daughters of the Moon and Earth, Sons of the Flame and Air. You must wait for them and guide them to their battle when they are ready. The one's who have imprisoned us for so long, will set us free."

And with those words, the Elder died in her apprentice's arms.


Present Day

Seventeen years have passed since the apprentice as taken her role as the Elven Mage. This memory of their Master's death still haunts them to this day. Upon the death, she spread the news on the Oracle's last words to her clan. The elves became excited and waited for their saviors to come. But as weeks turned into months, and months turned to years, hope began to fade. Even the Mage began to question her Master's words.

On the anniversary of the Elder's death, the Mage once again return to the location. This time, something different occurred. When the Elf Mage brought her eyes up to the sky, similar to the Master seventeen years before, a miracle occurred. Four orbs of light circled the sky. One green, one red, one blue, and one white. The Mage watched as the orbs descended onto the human lands. And as four children each received a colored orb from the heavens on their seventeenth birthday, three words slipped from the Elf Mage's lips; "They have come."







General Information:
King Maedil has taken control of the Human, and most of the Elven, realm in Nardragelen. He uses the Elves' Magic to make himself immortal and dictate the land. He suppresses the Elves greatly by treating them as slaves and servants in his castle and throughout the land. Many of the Elven Clans hide in the forests for safety. The humans have two choices with this; follow or die. It is up to the Element Children to defeat the king and unite the kingdom.

Races:
Humans- Have no magical powers and live in villages. Nearly all humans are peasants with the occasional Duke or army general. There is a mandatory draft for all males over 16. There is no escaping this if you get a call up slip, however many try.
Dwarves- Short and stout, live mostly underground to escape the King's rule. Are usually forgotten about.
Elves- Most magical and most suppressed by the King's rule of the three races. Live in harmony with nature. Usually tall and thin.
Elf Mage/Oracle- This elf has respect of all elves. He/she is the most magical of the race by being able to create potions and limited spells. They also are able to see into the future although the prophesies are often unclear. Once they have mastered their skills, they usually chose an apprentice to take their role once they die. (Remember- This Mage has only moved up from apprentice for 17 human years, which is a short time period for elves. He/she should be very inexperienced still. They may or may not have complete control of their powers, but they will not have an apprentice yet.)
Element Children- They are humans but are able to manipulate one of the four elements. They were always drawn to their element, and occasionally strange things happened around them, but their powers were not fully unlocked until they received their orb on that fateful night. Please be creative on background. This will be more entertaining if the characters do not immediately get alone due to cultural differences.

Toggle Rules

~Be ACTIVE. I have seen too many good RPs dye out because one or two of the main characters don't post enough. I want a minimum of one post daily. I understand we all have lives (maybe...) but I don't think that is asking too much of you. If you don't think you can handle this, submit your character as a regular elf/human/dwarf. They are still important but can fade in and out of the story more easily. Also, No one liners and use proper grammar.
~Be SMART. The setting is the feudal era, middle ages, whatever you want to call it. No whipping out a cell phone and texting your mom why you'll be late for dinner. In fact, you want dinner? Go grab a cross bow and kill it yourself.
~Pay attention to DETAILS. And yes. Some of the "Character Skeleton" sections are trick questions so I can assess how well you can do this. By the way, for the "Enemy" section of the skeleton, fill in "The King." ;)
~Romance. What can I say, I am a chick. So yes, romance is allowed and encouraged. But once again, follow rule two and be smart. Nothing too over-the-top.
~ Violence. Go ahead. There will be fights, blood, and gore. But remember, make weapons fit the time period.
~You can possibly reserve roles for up to 24 hours by PM-ing me. When you PM me, though, please include one ot two RPs that you are currently active in so I can check. If more than one character of the same role is submitted, I will chose the one I think will best fit the RP. This is also where my "tricks" will also fall into play.
~Important!
~~~NO Godmodding other characters. Be respectful to other characters. The Golden Rule, Etc. etc.. Any disputed with other characters, the rules, or anything this RP related bring it up with me in PM or OOC.
~~ PLEASE follow the lose plot of Main Characters Meet ----> Begin journey to King (this will be most of the RP) ----> Find Castle and meet King -----> Conclusion (Whether we defeat the King or not is TBA depending on everyone's contribution). Side plots are GREAT but if it gets too far off track I will nudge it back into line. If you want something else major in the plot sequence, please PM me. Most likely I will try to make it work. Other than that, go for it. Like I said, I may be the GM, but this Roleplay is nothing without you.
~~If you read all this, I thank you greatly. Please post a smiley face at the end of your character profile to let me know.
Finally- HAVE FUN!

Elanis smiled and chuckled lightly at Anifer's comments.
"Don't worry," she said, "I understand your meaning." She looked to where the children were by the stream. It seemed that the Water Child had found them. Good.
"Things are simple when you are young. There is good and evil, and you understand this." Elanis poked at the fire with a damp stick, shifting the wood around. "The longer you live in this world, the more you see. Sometimes you don't always see what needs to be seen, but what your hopes wish to see. Corruption is a vigilant and constant taskmaster. Even the best of us can fall if our ears are whittled away and we begin to accept lies."

As the girl drew near, Sophia held her chin high to properly surveyed her Elemental sister for the first time since the prior evening. It was apparent the two girls were foils to one another in the way they chose to dress: Sophia in her royal gown and Kasumi in a male attire. Sophia was rather amused by the outfit, a smirk spreading across her face. Even so, she did not comment on it. Instead, she focused her attention on the group around her.

Everyone was here at last, it seemed. The children had finally come together in one place, the Elven Mage was present, and even another elf joined the gathering; it was only a matter of time before their journey began now. Sophia cleared her throat, eyes darting between humans and elves. "Do introductions need to be made again?" she asked, glancing between everyone but eyeing Arthur bitterly as she still held a grudge for being labeled a 'Lady friend.'

Arthur

Arthur made quick work of some notes and discarded what was not needed into the campfire. It was at this moment he noticed Elanis standing beside another elf and decided to approach her since he had been meaning to speak to her. He slides his weapon back in his sheet and pockets his book, Making sure not to leave anything lying around.

He steps up to her side and see's what she see's, Some of the others near the water and they are conversing among themselves. Apparently for him this day is going quite well and the others are getting along very well.
"Lady Elanis, are you sure we can continue here without worrying about legion soldiers?" He addressed her formally as well he could. He had not spent much time with elves other then his trainers and a few of the cooks in his fathers estate.

"If it helps I could look over some of my old transcripts and see if there are any areas to hold out from the soldiers?" He lifts his satchel slightly to emphasis his assertiveness.

Elanis redirected her attention at Arthur as the young man spoke to her. She chuckled lightly as being called "Lady Elanis." She wasn't royalty, but suspected that Arthur simply didn't know how to address her. But the looks of it, he hadn't spent much time around elves.
"Elanis will do," she said simply. "And you perhaps you are right, that we must find better shelter," Elanis stood and took a few strides toward the stream. Projecting her voice, but not sounding like she was yelling, she called out to the three other saviors.
"Come now, we must be going. We shouldn't like to see a repeat of earlier. Other patrols will pass through here; it isn't safe."

Anifer

Anifer felt relieved when Elanis didn't mind what she had said, and said that she understood what she meant, she smiled and then saw that there was another human child that had appeared near the river and Sophia, after a moment Sophia came close and asked if introductions were needed again, Anifer had a broad smile as she was about stand p and said her name and await for them and to get to know the names of the other, when the boy with the light brown hair and withe and hazel eye spoke to Elanis it what seemed to her a very formal way, she got distracted by this and looked at him a it anxious of getting her chance to introduce herself to the others, but it was decided that it was dangerous to stay there and they had to move on, she sighed a bit disappointing but knew they were right, she got up and got her stuff that she had left on the ground while she ate, she place her sword in her back, she was ready.


Kasumi

She felt a bit uncomfortable, even though she was looking down at the ground she could feel the stare of the girl looking at her, she turned a bit away from her as she spoke to the others, they seemed they were going somewhere else, and it surely wasn't back to where the burned down village was, if they were worried about soldiers it was probable that there was the most probable place for soldiers to be, she thought about her family and she felt an urge to go back to them, but she knew she had to follow them, even with this feelings that she had about going to them her feet still seemed unresponsive, she took a couple step forward, "oh great so forward yes, back no?" she thought as she felt annoyed that her body reacted this way, she placed two fingers in her mouth and let out a strong whistle as she faced the river, then a hawk's cry could be heard in the air, she got quickly on her knees and got out a paper and a feather and a small ink bottle, she scribbled something in the paper as the hawk gave a couple of turns in the air, when she stood up the hawk dived and landed in her shoulder, she attached the note and the hawk took flight, quickly disappearing trough the trees. She then turned at to where the party was and waited to see were they were going.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

I know what you mean, I'm starting to get worried.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

I'm back!
But it doesn't seem like anything has happened anyway :p

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Take your time Luna ^_^

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

I'm just letting everyone know that I will be away for a few days, possibly til Sunday. I'm helping my boyfriend move into his college apartment, and I'm still unsure how long I'll be over there.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

oops, sorry I made a double post -_-'

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

"Dragoon" is just a title, self proclaimed by Kenthe when he burned the village in an attempt to help free the people. But Kenthe has yet to say what his real name is. So they just know him as Dragoon for right now. (Or "Sparky" in Sophia's case XD ).

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Sorry about that, Thought I was letting on that he witnessed most of the events as it turned from night to day.
The fact that hes a Dragoon kinda went over me I guess, Just thought it was some sort of title and that he was refereed to by name by most others.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

I'm soo sorry for the absence, my dad was in the hospital, so roleplaying wasn't my first priority. I was going to ask what all has happened while I was gone but, apparently I've been replaced, so I guess I'll just abandon my character... see you guys.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

oooh ok...so the village is burnt, I missed that part I though only one house was burned... guess Kasumi is outside of what would've been the village with her family... and looks for the others later on...


I edited the post.. is that better??

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Ummm, Oborosen, Kobochi, I don't fuss too much about minor details like this, but I have a feeling that we're not all on the same page here. So, to help everyone out:

- To all characters in the RP thus far, Kenthe is known as Dragoon and his real name has not yet been revealed.

- Upon arriving to the town, Kenthe basically burned most of it to ashes, destroying the royal guard garrison that was stationed there. The only house that looks to be in fine condition is Victorias.

- The sun still high in the sky, Kenthe and Sophia woke up and traveled a good distance from the town and into the woods, running into Draven. Elanis followed suit and Anifer was watching them from atop a tree.

- After a brief exchange of words, Kenthe left to go to a stream still a ways from the town, but not that far from where Sophia, Elanis, Draven, and Anifer were.

- Draven left shortly after to return to the village he was at earlier.

- Kenthe caught a few fish and was able to cook all but 2 of them, one burnt and one still raw.

- It is assumed that Sophia, Elanis, and Anifer approach him next. He then offers them the cooked fish and saves the last one for either Arthur or Kasumi. He eats the raw one.

And those should be all the details. From the looks of it you two describe it as if it's still night and that there is a camp set up somewhere. There isn't one as of yet, if you'd like you can have one set up, but Kenthe, Sophia, Elanis, and Anifer are no where near it.

It would be nice if you could edit your posts, but to me not necessary, just incorporate these details in your next posts and everything will be less confusing to everyone ;D

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Oborosen, is your new post in the present time or the night before? If it's in the present then it's early morning right now

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Okay I will make the required adjustments to the character information.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Okay, they are both in. But one thing, Oborosen it sounds like your character got the orb when he was born. They don't get it until their 17th birthday, AKA last night.


Also, I wanted you guys to have been around to hear Elanis's prophecy. You could have come late at night, heard it, and then passed out asleep where Kenthe and Sophia left you guys to find Draven. But please, you needed to hear it with everyone together. Here it is (all credit for this prophecy goes to Luna):

Daughter of the Moon, Son of Air.
Daughter of the Earth, Son of Fire.
When these powers gather and the Mage appears, saviors are formed through disaster.
When the sky is black and devoid of light, a quest begins.
Travel long, Water. Cut the path of freedom.
Travel hard, Air. Bring the songs of joy.
But fight hard, Earth. Remain firm to your convictions.
Fight long, Fire. Give rebirth to the lands which seek it.
Should one fail, all will fall.
For if the one closest to the King should falter, all may be lost

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

yup as Oborosen said, no problem ^-^ I'll submit the water character soon as well

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

I and Kobochi have juggled a few Rps at a time so I think it will be no big problem for us. I will submit an Air character soon.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Yes, we did have a water girl, but then Mirror has been inactive for a bit. Actually, she made a new account.... She hasn't responded to my PMs.

And yes, we do need someone for Water and someone for Air. I know Oborosen mentioned you two would be interested in the roles, but neither of your current characters would work. You would need to make new ones. Would juggling two characters be too much for you? Do not feel pressured to take the roles.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Thanks!! ^_^

Oh Oborosen said you needed a water element child, is it for this RP?? because I saw there was already a character here, did it stop posting? I will gladly make one I'll submit the character as soon as I have it ^_^

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Kobochi is in! Good character.

Re: [OOC] The Oracle's Prophecy

Okay, my friend said she will submit a character.
