Echoes of Darkness

Echoes of Darkness


Darkness is rising, threatening to consume our world. Seven teenagers have the ability to stop the Lord of Darkness from taking over. But will they be able to succeed, or will they die trying?

530 readers have visited Echoes of Darkness since amber_the_poet created it.


Darkness is rising. Evil is overtaking good, and the balance of the world is shifting. From the depths of the earth, shadow creatures are arising, creating chaos in what was once a peaceful world. Now, nothing is as it seems. Your safe places are now danger zones. Your trusted allies are now enemies. You can trust no one. Safety is impossible. The only thing left to do is fight the darkness...

In the darkness of chaos, a light of hope shines. Seven teenagers were born with unnatural talents. Some call these talents powers; others call them mutations. But they are gifts - gifts that are our only chance to take back control of our world and set things right.

Only one human being knows of these teenagers and the gifts they possess. Only one person knows that their destiny is to rid the world of the shadows. He knows the prophecy:
Seven shall join and overcome the darkness. One who masks the truth. One who can speak to flames. One who can change his skin. One who can shape shadows. One who can restore. One who possesses second sight. One who owns the air. They shall defeat darkness, but only if they come together. And only one shall survive and come out victorious.

Mieki knows the prophecy, and he can sense the location of the teenagers. Now, he goes to each of them, bringing them to the ancient places of training where they will learn to defend themselves, to weild their powers, and to work as a team to overcome the darkness. They must learn to fight together. If even one fails, then the world is condemned to chaos. And only one shall survive...

Here are the main characters:
Mieki - played by me
He's the only human who knows of the prophecy, and the one who must train the seven children to be warriors and defeat the Lord of Darkness, Raeli.

Raeli (Lord of Darkness) - Open to any advanced roleplayer
The cruel king of Shadow Beings, he has lain in wait for the perfect time to attack. Now, his army is strong enough to take over the world. He, too, knows of the prophecy. He has made it his goal to thwart the seven children in their plans. If he can kill just one, he knows he shall succeed in ruling the world. Without all seven children, the world is doomed.

Dreier - Open to any advanced roleplayer
Attendent to Lord Raeli, Dreier has more power than any other Shadow Being. He cannot be killed by any mortal blade, or weapon of any kind. He brags that he is invincible, and indeed, he very nearly is. The only way he can be killed is when a sacrifice has been made in exchange for his death. In order for him to die, someone else must die as well.

The Seven Children
Girl One - an illusionist (can create illusions) - Taken
Girl Two - a healer (can heal others by touching them, and herself) - Taken
Girl Three - a seer (can see glimpses into the future/past) - Taken
Boy One - a pyro (can create/control fire) - Open
Boy Two - a shape shifter (he is able to change his looks/transform into something else) - Taken
Boy Three - a shadower (can call shadows to hide in) - Taken
Boy Four - an air-walker (can walk on air) - Open

Minor Characters:
Shadow Beings
The army of Raeli. They are able to control shadows, and also to turn themselves into shadows. If you are touched by them in their shadow-shape, they latch onto your shadow, and you are unable to move as they suck the life out of you. In their human form, they can be killed in any of the ways that a normal human can be killed. In their shadow form, they are unable to be killed, but are defeated by light.

The occupants of earth. Scared, confused, and thrust into chaos, they are helpless. They are being tormented by Shadow Beings who feed off their life force.

Skeleton for Seven Children:
Age: (16-18)
Looks: (picture or description)
Role: (Girl One, Boy Three, etc.)

Ok, for anyone who wants to attempt to be Lord Raeli or Dreier, please send me an example of your roleplaying as well as submitting a character for them.

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

There has been no activity in this roleplay for a while, so I was wondering if it's even still alive. :/

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness


What happened to all these people who reserved characters? I'm really interested in this roleplay, so I hope we can start as soon as possible.

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Mauve...your roleplay example was amazing! You can play Dreier :)

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

I wouldn't mind playing Dreier; might I reserve him?
I'm not sure about being "advanced" but I'll try my best.

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Alright, my character application has been submitted. :)

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Ok, so as of now, other than needing everyone to submit character bios (don't worry, i'm not trying to pressure you :P) we need people to play boys 1 and 4. I guess no one wants to take on the job of the bad guys :P I may have to play them I guess.

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Yup, boy three is open as of now.

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Can I reserve Boy Three?

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

@ Markad, Annaky, and AnimeGirl: Absolutely! :) Just put the char's up whenever you get the chance :)

@ Sarkuro: Sorry, I'm playing girl three. You could play one or two of the boys?

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Re: [OOC] Echoes of Darkness

Can I reserve girl three? There's no way I can get girl two.....U-U
