It is the nature of both people and kingdoms to rise and fall, just as surely as the sun will rise every morning and set every night. In a cycle they turn, a dance for all eternity. These comings and goings of people and kingdoms may seem ineffectual to an onlooker of Baekoth, an eternal and old land. But to those who live through these events, these risings and falls, it is everything. It is life, and it is only what they can make of it, only what they choose to make of it, and it is the only thing that matters to them.

Baekoth now is home to many who bow to The Messiah Queen and her god Aule, her rule now extends through all of Dorelith, a country once belonging to the many kingdoms of humans, kings reduced to noblemen, wardens of land that was once wholly theirs. Her rule grows, expanding every year. She entrances the masses with her miracles of raising the dead and healing the sick, taking feelings of hunger or thirst away and showing them the might of Aule the merciful. She seeks to spread his love and mercy to all of Baekoth, and to smite those who would stand against him. She prepares the world for his arrival. The neighbors of Dorelith, the Orcs to the Freelands, the Elves to the great forest, and Taomar, a Daemon Empire in its budding, are all tense with anticipation at whether the conquering will continue to their lands. The humans refusing the rule of The Messiah Queen for one reason or another have formed a thus far ineffectual rebellion; they are a nuisance to the Queen’s forces at best, but a persistent one.IC

Soon they may have help, to the south there begins a rebellion of slaves who have thrown off their shackles, led by the once thought lost Princess of Citha, the Kingdom that The Messiah Queen first laid claim to and began her conquest with. The slaves move in secrecy, attacking slavers on their way to the great Gladiator arena in Taomar, leaving none alive to confirm their existence. They have the element of surprise, for now. When word gets out, this causes trouble for the Princess who was shown mercy and protected by the Messiah Queen's Adviser. Can the younger Princess, a mere prisoner and pawn, survive this?

And still yet in other parts of Baekoth plots thicken and destiny uncoils. Taomar is busy building itself and the Elves are as silent in their forests as ever. The wind whispers of some Witch King seeking vengeance. The Freelands thunder with the heavy footsteps of the Orcs gathering. The waters ripple with the fretful splash of mermaids swimming. Even the Halflings in their protected valley grow curiously nervous. War looms over Baekoth, it is heavy in the air, and perhaps none will escape it.

This roleplay is a high fantasy, large scale roleplay that I intend to accept a fairly large volume of characters for. In this roleplay there is a lot of information that myself and others have written down to better give shape to Baekoth, the continent our characters will be interacting on. The information is accessible through the links located on the right hand side. Please be sure that you read through all of the information at hand, it will be worth it in the long run. I have provided a main overlaying plot but we definitely want more suggestions and things going on, communication and collaboration is what will make this rp truly great, it's what will make it grow. So please do not be shy, voice your ideas so we may perhaps use them in the future. I should make it clear when I say that this roleplay does require a certain level of writing to keep up with the players going to be accepted, it's no fun if someone writes an elaborate response and gets zilch in return. Violence and more 'R' rated elements will be present in the roleplay, it is a roleplay intended for mature audiences and will deal with gritty realism and quite possibly character death. This is a fantasy rp yes, however we will not have elements in the rp that make no sense and are not backed up reasonably. Furthermore, although there is some sexism in some of the races of Baekoth there is no such thing as homophobia. There is no reason at all for your character to be homophobic, no bible religions existent that state that sort of thing is unnatural. Keep things in cultural perspective for your character, and although we have written some of it for you culture-wise there is much we did not touch on. If something is not stated, feel free to make it up yourself! Just make sure it keeps with the flow of the race and culture. If you go too far off track I can reign you in. Above all, please enjoy, be here to enjoy.

The main plot centers around the rebellion against the messiah queen, which I will NPC, and the political ongoings within Dorelith - at first. I would like this roleplay to grow and encompass more things as time goes on. Which will be inevitable since the messiah queen is less a messiah and more a demon lord posessing a woman who wants to bring ruin to Baekoth. So when it comes to characters please keep in mind that you can have more than one and for now I want certain roles filled so we can play out the main plot.

The character creation process for this rp is heavily detailed and long on purpose, it is to both show your willingness to commit and to show you have a good grasp of every aspect of your character. I am not looking for half complete characters who make take form in the rp, I am looking for complete creations from you. It shows maturity in writing when you can come up with a complete picture of a character.

Here is a good directory for figuring our moral alignments if you are unfamiliar with that sort of thing. For certain races I will allow an illustration, such as the Daemon, but for everyone else I will require that you make a face claim suited for the rp. I have compiled a helpful list to get you started if you don't know where to look for face claims. There are even many Daemon face claims available if you know where to look, I urge you to ask an admin or someone from the ooc for assistance in this endeavor if you need it. I highly prefer that you have a realistic image for your character. You are not limited to actors in this either, I fully accept face claims from deviantart, there are many cosplayers there who are quite talented.

You are welcome to more than one character if you can handle it, to start out I may only allow those who have characters that won't be doing much at times to have a second character, but once I get to know you and your writing capability I will allow it.

[Perfect] - [Excellent] - [Good] - [Above Average] - [Average] - [Below Average] - [Poor] - [Very Poor]

The above rating system will be used for your characters physical effectiveness in combat and other skills, please keep in mind that if your character is perfect or excellent at something then they must be truly exceptional. Perfect and excellent are not levels one often achieves, especially when it comes to combat. Racial abilities or artifacts may help you get there however. I will be watching characters carefully on this matter and make sure no one has a special ability that isn't backed up. Talent will only get you so far, hard work is what makes perfect and excellent. Good is a level regular people would be impressed by, most Knights fall into the combat level of Good. Above average means you have either had training or have talent. Average is a regular person relatively speaking within their race. Very poor means you have never tried it or you are especially hopeless at it.
