Under The Moon

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Aelita on Mon Mar 05, 2007 5:12 pm

Grassy plains covered the rolling hills of a land long forgotten…so it seemed. The hills were not only covered with plains but also covered in lush amounts of animals of all sorts. Big, small, short, and tall. All sorts hurried to these plains. It seemed like a sort of Heaven they dwelled in to get away from starvation and being homeless in the deadly deserts outside. Although life had it’s routine for them they were happy where they were and chose to live here where there was more danger from predators then slow deaths by the heat, starvation, and other things that caused them much pain before death. Within the large meadows are also huge forests. The forests are very beautiful and are inhabited but numerous amounts of creatures. These forests had the tallest of trees and the smallest of bushes. The way the sun’s ray’s shown through the parts in the canopy made it look like a mystical land only read about in fairy tales.

Also living amongst these plains and magical forests were humans and animal like humans. Though the forests and plains are overwhelming the human creatures live in towns and villages. Some of these villages are built within the plains and forests. In the forests the villages are actually more like tree houses connected by wooden bridges. The trees are so vast and sturdy that the support needed to keep the houses up were more then enough and very trust worthy. These villages were mainly inhabited by the animal like humans or lycans if you will. Though when these creatures bite a human being only certain types of these lycans will actually spread there animal genetics. Even so they are still shunned by some villages and towns even after the civil war that broke out four years ago and was just settled this past year. The humans are still cautious around the creatures but they are slowly learning to accept them into society. Of course there are still a select few who despise the creatures with all of their heart and will not rest until they reek havoc against them all and run them out.

As you know villages are very small. The most capacity of a village ranges anywhere from thirty to one hundred people in a single village. In the towns the numbers aren’t much greater but they have better qualities. These qualities consist of better food stands and mini stores, bigger living spaces, and there are a bit more jobs available. It is not too hard to keep from poverty in these times but due to gambling and other costly enjoyments, people have been known to gamble their entire life away just to win the game. Although the games do give a lot of money to the winner most of the people who play are playing for the fun and excitement of the game hoping they can win and rise in their reputations around the towns.

In the villages there are no games and not as many or as great of shops. They only sell what they need to in order to keep their inhabitants alive and well. For fun they must seek it on their own and make things up. The people who grew up in villages are most likely to randomly sing unheard songs and think up the most fun and weirdest games due to their isolation of the games that people have in the towns, they have to make up their own and try to make fun out of it. These people are not what you would call ‘pitied’ but they are looked down upon for the way they live by the people in the towns. These days now, though, the humans are starting to get along better with other humans because they would rather befriend their own species then a mixed or entirely different species. As said before, the humans are beginning to get used to the creature humans and are slowly befriending them, even though there will always be someone holding a grudge against them.

There is a town for the basic directions on a compass, North, South, East, and West, Which means there are only four towns and there are three villages. There is one village toward the north, one toward the south, and another one south west. The village names are similar to the direction they are in as well. The town names on the other hand are made up entirely by the leader of that town. The main town, in the north, is named Hasenaga. It means northern superiority. To the south is Netsutog, which means southern station, to the east is Pestiva, which means divine glory, and then the west which is Yutasu, it means Celtic city. Each of these towns were named for the pride of the leader who founded them.

Our story takes place in Pestiva, a smaller town that is not too big and not too small. Almost everyone knows everyone and most of the people are friendly. If you live there you will know for sure who are not the friendly people of the town. The houses resemble colonial houses and the streets are paved in stones. There are no cars or advanced machinery, everyone get’s around either by walking or horse back. Mostly everyone lives in the town but a few live outside of the town on a farm that raises horses and cattle for rent and sale to anyone who is going on a trip, but the farm houses are not too far away from the town. It generally takes about thirty minutes on horse back to get there from town and to town from there. In the middle of the town is a large circular spot they call The Fountain because it has a huge fountain in the middle of it. Stands line the circle with food, drinks, clothing, weapons, and other things that might occupy the inhabitants. Behind these stands are stores such as gambling houses, inns, and pubs. There are seats next to the fountain so people can rest and enjoy the day. This is the main place people go to socialize, have town meetings, and get what they need or want.

Almost all of the towns are like this but the northern and southern towns have bigger and better gambling places. That is how they make their money. Also within every town is the ‘House’, this is the house occupied by the leader of the town and where the inhabitants pay their taxes. The taxes are for living there and it depends on how much they are by where you live. In Pestiva the taxes are fair enough and allow the inhabitants to spend their money on things they want as long as they don’t have a big family. If a person is late on their taxes, the taxes will be increased by a small amount. If they are overly late then they will either have to work to make it up, be exiled from the town, or have to give up their child to pay off the debt. Usually the town will resort to just making the people work it off but if it is too bad then they will have to proceed with the second and third mentioned.

Rules:
Follow RPG Gateway or Gwing Rules.
You can be whatever creature you want but it would be nice to have humans in too.
HAVE FUN!!!!!!


Zatani is an 18 year old human who had recently just picked her life up from the effects of the civil war. It didn't bother her much but it seemed that everyone was on edge and she tried to stear clear of them. Especially around the taverns. She walked down the street heading toward the Fountain. She needed some supplies for her home since she hadn't been out in a while. As she walked down the street she looked around seeing only few lycan creatures about and wondered if everyone was still on harsh terms. She made it to the Fountain and looked around to see which stand she should go to first.

Im gonna use my version of Nightmare from Tower of Gaia except with something like Soul Edge
PS he has the nightmare voice which is a deep ghost-like voice

[Edit]Here is my character without the special robes that hide his armor and arm

A figure stands on the tallest point of the old castles ruins. He had been entrusted to guard. The castle had been destroyed by the last war and was mainly ruined by heavy projectiles. His robes waving in the wind. Bodies lie strewn across the floor of the castle. The spell that kept him in the castle was still on him. He could not escape the ruins' grounds. He was a prisoner trapped in his hatred. If the war had not killed all inhabitants of the castle he would have destroyed it himself, but now he has nothing but rocks and corpses. He awaits, he awaits for the curse to be broken and for him and the living sword to escape these hell grounds. Vultures started arriving at the smell of blood and death, for tyhem it was a buffet, a grand fest to them. Corpses hanging on what was left of walls with dismembered body parts,still bleeding although the hearts have stopped.

Zatani got what she needed as she started heading toward her home. She was bored often and usually went exploring for fun even though she was 18 she still liked to do childish things sometimes. When she got home she opened up her window to the back ally as she began putting her bread and other foods away she heard voices talking. It seemed as if they were talking about a castle of some sorts but it was kind of faint. What she did hear was the location and it made her excited. Excited enough to run to her room and got a few adventure equipment of hers and didn't hear the part where there was a killer creature on the castles peremisses.

After she packed her gear she opened up the door leaving her window open. These days people trusted other people enough to even leave their doors wide open but she shut her door behind her anyway. She made her way out of the town and across the terrain looking around every once in a while to make sure she was going in the right direction. She finally ended up at what seemed to be a piece of wall. She looked at it curiously then kept moving on. She then came in the view of corpses being pecked at by vultures and the smell of death. Luckily for her, she couldn't smell as well as a dog or whatever so it didn't bother her as bad. She kept venturing out into the area until she came in view of the castle itself. She was still a small ways away from it as she kept walking toward it looking around and scanning the area.

The Demn's eyes grew red for a flash and than the monster disapeared into a small dust in the wind. He was watching this person traveling across the castle grounds. After a little while he appeared behind her and took his sword in to his monsterous arm "You shall die here weakling!"

Zatani kept walking until suddenly she heard a voice behind her. She turned around to face the person confused at what they meant then saw that he had a sword in his hand. Her eyes grew wide with fear as she let out a shreak and turned to run. She tried to run as fast as she could occasionally looking behind her to see if he was gaining on her. She had never seen a demon before and this certainly shocked her speechless. She kept running but when she turned to look where he was she tripped over a dead body and fell hard to the ground. She looked where her legs were over the body and gasped as she tried to move away from it like it was infected with diseases that would kill her if she touched it any longer.

Before she could get up the demon was in front of her and picked her up by her throat and laughed as he thre her to the side. he put the sword into his left hand and put it upside down as he clenched the air in front of him "Blood, Darkness... Come unto me!" he shouted as orbs came from the corpses around him and entered the sword "You shall become a part of me!" he shouted again as he pointed to her. He jumped in the air and slashed at her as the eye of the sword widened as it came closer to its target.

IC:
As she hit the ground the impact blew the breath right out of her and she kept caughing and rubbing her throat. Zatani then watched as the orbs came into the sword then he jumped up and slashed at her. She then got up as quick as she could and ran as fast as her legs would allow her. She tried to jump over corpses and dodge debrie as she tried to keep her distance away from the attack.

"Let the Darkness consume you!" he souted as he crossed his arms. When he parted them a sort of red-orange aura appeared around him and grew. It was powerful enough to clear all of the debris bodies and walls from the area and if you were strong enough to stand against it, it would start devouring you. As it grew it flung bodies away from him as it starting tailing her.

She looked behind her back to see what was happening when she saw that he was coming after her. Frantically she searched for a way to get away from him. She then saw a hole in the side of the castle and ran to it going through hitting her shoulder on the way in. It didn't hurt that bad but she held it out of reflex and soon let go. She had never fought before and she was terrified, hoping that she wouldn't have to fight him. Zatani kept thinking of a way out as she searched for somewhere to go.

Zatani looked around after hearing the words but did not see who made them. She kept looking around until she walked back the way she came and out the whole in the wall and still could not find him. She let out a sigh of relief wanting to sit down but when she looked around at the ground, the bodies laying everywhere easily changed her mind. She walked around the bodies looking up to the sky then for a moment she looked back at the castle wondering what happened to him and what the story was behind the castle. Her heart was still beating fast from all the strange things that had happened and she took a couple deep breaths to calm herself down.

IC:
A strong force hit the castle and she ducked down as low as she could covering her head with her eyes shut. Everything around her started giving way to the force. Finally when it was over she slowly opened her eyes and looked around taking her hands off her head. she slowly stood up shaken by everything that had happened. She looked around to see what happened, when she didn't see anything at all. The castle and bodies were gone. She wondered what happened to them then a frightening thought overcame her. "Is he that powerful??" She asked herself starting to shake from fear even more. She then regains some of her stature and she walked away from where the castle used to be looking at the spot over her shoulder it was like the castle had never been there.

As he moved the anivil inside the stone building he couldnt shake a fealing of pure evil... He didnt even know his name but he put aside these facts as he saw a woman walking down the dirt road who had looked like she saw death right in the eye sockets. He again ignored this fact and continued moving the anvil inside,he had just moved to the small village no more than an hour ago and he hadn'y quite understanded it himself. He came out of nowhere with a bundle of stuff behind him and enough gold coins in one hand to by a house and a stone building. This had happened before but he didnt remember anything happening to the village. After he finished supplying the building he went into what would be his house and looked outside at the things that were sitting in front of the house wondering where to put it all.

Zatani eventually calmed herself down and walked back to the town. She walked through the streets until she made it to her house. She went inside and shut the door behind her. Quickly, she walked over to her couch feeling the breeze of the open window come in lightly. She sat down on the couch taking in the smell of her room and thought about what happened but tried not to. She tried to think of other things but as she thought she didn't realise that she was worne out from all the comotion that she fell asleep on her couch with her arms wrapped loosely around her legs.

After he finished putting everything up he went back to his building and heating up the fireplace. After it heated up he put some sort of stone rack inside of it with metals on it to make weapons. he was going to open up the shop tomorrow so he needed weapons to display,fast! If you were to stand right outside of the door, you could feel the intense heat across your face.

Zatani woke up from her slumber as she heard a couple of dogs barking at eachother close to her window. She rubbed her eyes. It was getting dark out when she remembered that she had lost her dagger the other day. She was out in the woods cutting up tree limbs when she forgot it as she left. She went back there the day after but couldn't find it. Her father had made it for her and she was sad about loosing it, but she had to make another one and get over it. Thing is she didn't have that kind of material and didn't know where to go to get them made until she heard something about someone opening a weapon shop.

News spread fast in the small town even if nothing had ever been said. She grew curious about this and as the moon got higher in the sky she walked around the town looking for the place. She then seen one house that seemed to have a lot of smoke coming from its chimney and you could see the brightness of the flames through the windows. Her eyes grew wide and had second thoughts about going in. She walked closer to the door but when she did she immediately grew hot and backed away with a confused look. "Wow...that's burning up just by the door...how can anyone put up with that kind of heat?" She asked in a whispering voice to herself as she looked around the yard for a sign that said it was a weapn shopt.

As the metals became white hot the man got out some tongs to pull out the sheet he had set the matls on, they were bright red and could easily be bent an shaped. He stepped outside and wiped what surprisingly little sweat there was on his face with an old rag and saw the woman from earlier "Hey." he said as he put the rag away "What can I do you for?"

Zatani looked up to the voice of the person who was in the shop. Her eyes grew wide with fear and she stepped back looking around for somewhere to run and hide. "U-um, I think I have the wrong place. I am just gonna go away." She said still searching around for where she could go and hide well.
