Introduction

Image


Humans have been known to soil what they have been given. They are spoiled creatures who take more than they are willing to give. The Angels are to blame for this, drowning their beloved children with their gifts despite the warnings from the Gods, but even they could only give so much. Perhaps, when they realized what their spoiling had done, it was already too late to take it back. It was too late to save what was already too far gone.

The humans were given a flourishing planet full of greens and oxygen, full of beauty and nourishment. They were given hearts to love and eyes to see to gaze upon the world and feel at peace. They were given souls to be themselves and the freedom to express this as they pleased, but they ruined this. They were given lives and a place in which to live and they destroyed it. The beautiful planet, Epiternal, began dying. The luscious wildlife heaved from diseases mankind created, the beautiful blue waters dyed black from lazy wastes, and the people stained the planet red with the blood of those they were meant to love.

The Gods who gave them life were displeased with the outcome and planned to rid them all from existence, but the Angels begged the Gods to give them another chance. They loved their children and were desperate to have them survive, even if it meant tearing apart the gifts they gave them. The Angels banished the humans from Epiternal and cast them away far above the clouds to live on mere pieces of the dying planet. Centuries later, word of Epiternal became merely a myth and those pieces of the planet became floating continents in the skies where humans have managed to survive just as they once had, oblivious to the second chance they were given. Many still pray to the Angels to this day, considering them deities that they can bring offerings to in exchange for gifts and happiness.

Over time, the Gods have studied the habits of the humans living in this state and deemed them unworthy of their existences. Humans are still human. They still breed hate and spill waste and live their lives in carefree ignorance. The Gods believe they are selfish, a mistake, and that they have no good worth saving in them. None of them. The continents have begun to crumble and fall apart just as the planet long ago. Despite the Angels wishes to save them yet again, the Gods have refused and are simply waiting for their continents to crumple and for the humans to fall, destroying themselves.

The Angels believe there is genuine good in humans. They believe all living creatures are worth saving, so they've started to work behind the backs of the Gods to save their precious humans. While the humans were away, the planet of Epiternal was able to flourish yet again, even allowing other beings to reside and inhabit it. The Angels believe that if the continents are returned to the planet, they can learn from these creatures and work to better themselves and keep themselves and their planet alive. However, they cannot return the crumpling continents to Epiternal themselves. They need humans to do it for them and, in turn, they hope the Gods will see the work the humans have gone through to save themselves and each other that they will grant them another chance at life.

After the humans were cast away from Epiternal all those centuries ago, the Gods deemed them unworthy of their time and left them in the care of the Angels alone. In the meantime, the Gods began experimenting with new creatures on what was left of the planet and have guided these new creatures as their better children, considering them far superior to humans. However, the Gods may not be as wise as they believe they are. The creatures below are planning a large-scale war of their own. Tensions are high, people are not to be trusted. Perhaps the Gods will see that humans aren't the only living creatures capable of making mistakes. While the Gods have been watching over their new children, they have not been granting their wishes since they believe that is where the Angels went wrong with the humans. The creatures have begun to question their existence altogether and they fear abandonment, which will only lead to their destruction.

Perhaps...no living creature can be saved.

The planet below the clouds. It's flush with mostly forests and green lands with smalls towns and villages littered around. Many structures may appear to have been abandoned, but the creatures who live there allow the wildlife to grow over them even while they still inhabit the area. There are vague signs of the times when humans lived on the planet, but most are rotted or hidden far away. Those who live here are not humans, although some may appear human-like in appearance and nature, more or less. There are many relics scattered around the land and many mysteries surrounding long-lost relics, most of which are long-forgotten shrines for the Angels that the creatures of this planet no longer worship. Those who live on this planet usually worship the gods. There are small kingdoms ruled by low-scale rulers that, over time, have begun to wish for more greedy things.

Image


This continent is reserved strictly for those humans who have grown wings. While it is technically a simple genetic mutation, an abnormality that can't be entirely explained, most humans consider these people to be born with holy roots. They connect their ancestors to Angels (although this has never been confirmed or proven). Alata is considered the capital of the three continents. It has the tallest, most advanced structures of all the continents. It's not the largest or the smallest of the three, but somewhere in between. The population is smallest of the three since there are more non-winged humans than there are winged ones, but there's still enough to maintain the well being of one another. Alata has less plant life and less wildlife of all three continents, making room for more buildings and magical outlets. Normal humans go there as tourists, especially when they want to go on shopping sprees.

Image


The smallest of three continents. It's also known for having the most plant life and the least amount of towns. The people here are happy to live in their simplicity, although they're usually considered the poorer types than the simpler types. They tend to be more in-tune with nature and animals and while they don't get very many visitors, they have the highest trade rate of all the continents. Their farms are the largest and they grow the sweetest fruits and loveliest vegetables.

Image


This continent doesn't have anything especially peculiar about it. It has the highest population of all the continents, as well as being the largest of the three, and it maintains a good balance between wildlife, farmland, and towns for the people to inhabit. Their magic seems to be the thing most others talk about and their continent holds many rare ingredients used for potions and cooking that people from other continents would love to get their hands on. A human who was born on Carismi was the one who learned that they could travel by taming and using the large birds who flew around their homes, something many of the humans from all three continents enjoy today.

Image


    Birds:
They are the main source of transportation for those who live on the continents. For those who wish to travel from one continent to another, they use the birds. There is a colorful array of different species of birds and a great majority have been tamed over the years to be comfortable with human company. Despite their large sizes and possible intimidating appearance, they are rarely hostile unless provoked. Many people keep them as pets. It's best to give them names and feed them so that they will become loyal to one person or one group of people so that they will come when called or when needed. The birds are used to carry messengers, cargo, trades, and various other things. Some people have them just to ride around the skies and enjoy themselves. The birds refuse to go below the clouds and will not do so no matter how loyal they are to their owner.

    Harpies:
While they may appear vaguely humanistic in appearance, they are anything but. Harpies are wild animals that can not be tamed. They make awful shrieking noises and can not be communicated with. They aren't highly intelligent lifeforms. They have base instincts. They are unafraid of diving beneath the clouds and tend to visit the planet of Epiternal from time to time to feed on unsuspecting animals or creatures who look edible to them. In fact, creatures are more in danger of harpies than humans despite humans having to deal with them more often. Harpies don't eat humans, but they seem to enjoy terrorizing them on their continents. It's probably a territorial thing. They rarely kill humans and usually just make a mess of knocking over stands, scaring people off, squawking loudly in the middle of the night, eating food and animals from the farms, and occasionally harming humans and carrying off pets.

    Fae:
Fairies are everywhere. They're on each of the continents and also on the planet below the clouds. They are human-like in appearance, each of them small enough to fit in the palm of the average human's hand.They all have a small pair of unique wings, fitted so they are able to fly around. The majority of them seem to enjoy the company of others and like making themselves useful for the humans on the continents and the creatures on Epiternal. They can talk and communicate, but they have no sense of society and usually live wild and free. However, some people enjoy having them as friends or companions. It's considered cruel and unjust to consider them pets, lock them away, or force them to do things they don't want to do.

[hr][/hr][hr][/hr]

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Name:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Your character's name here again, first and last. If it has a weird spelling, put some phonetics so we know how to pronounce it. (Did I use that word right? I may never know)

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Nickname(s):[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Including who uses the nickname and how they got it. Might as well add if they like it or not. Optional.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Role:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Winged, Continent, or Planet? Dumb role names, I know.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Age:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Anywhere between sixteen to twenty-two.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Gender:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
I'm sure you know how to fill this out. Gender's a spectrum, feel free to dive away from the "norm." If you do, please add pronouns and stuff.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Romantic Interest(s):[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Your character can have more than one. Might want to mention past flames, if they’re important.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Sexuality:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Include whether or not he/she has come out, or who (if anyone) knows. Again, you may stray off the typical spectrum if you wish.

You should know this. Be reasonable? I guess? I don't care

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Weight:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Again, you should know this.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Hair:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Is it specially styled, etc. Maybe it used to be a certain way until something happened? No hair-dye, please. Although, with anime, pinks and blues are natural. Hella. (in other words, if your character has green hair, don't say that they used to have brown and dyed it green. those kinds of chemicals aren't available in this setting. HOWEVER, i'll allow some "magic"-based explanation if you'd like).

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Eyes:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Does he/she wear contacts? Glasses? Maybe they're blind?

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Description:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Just a general overview of their looks. Include any notable markings, like scars, burns, etc. How do they appear to themselves? How do they appear to others? At least one paragraph.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Preferred Clothing:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Maybe they prefer something, but usually wear something else? What can they most commonly be seen wearing?

Be creative! At least three paragraphs!

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Oddities:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Optional. Just things like weird ticks or habits.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Likes:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
At least five.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Dislikes:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
At least five.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Fears:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
At least three. They don’t have to be big. Some description as to why, please.

[hr][/hr][hr][/hr]

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Skills:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Does he/she have a knack for numbers? Fast runner? Stuff like that. I’m limiting it to three.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Weaknesses:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Is he/she bad at working with others? Can’t fight to save his/her life? At least three.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Powers:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Optional. Only fill this out if your character knows any magic aside from the ones they are naturally born with because of their race. Basically, learned magic. Many people on the continents can use and practice magic; it's not a new or surprising thing to anyone. Magic is not like superheroes. In this setting, it's more like witches and warlocks, used for making potions and other things (flipping pages in a book, cooking, reaching high-up objects, etc.). However, your character can have a specialty, like being good at fire-based magic or something like that. You can have two specialties at the max.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Abilities:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
This is where you put the things that your character can do naturally as part of their race (if you're not someone living on the continents). State and describe them. Does your character have the strength of a thousand normal human men? Are their senses above the norm? You are allowed to have up to three.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Weapon(s):[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Optional. Also, if they do have one (or more), mention where they keep the weapon when they aren't using it. No guns or futuristic stuff like lasers.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Fighting Style:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Just give us an idea on how your character generally fights, if they do at all. If they don't, or aren't very good at it, say what they would do in a confrontation.

[hr][/hr][hr][/hr]

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Race:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
**Only for those living on the planet and not on the continents. As mentioned in the intro, anything is allowed. Humanoid creatures are fine. You can make up your own race, and if you use one already in existence, feel free to make up your own rules about them. Give a brief description of their culture and etc.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Family:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Mom, Dad, siblings, and the like, or anyone they consider family works too. Maybe there is a loving grandmother, or maybe he/she is an orphan. Include if they're alive or deceased--if they're deceased, add why.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]History:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Just what you think might come up/be important. At least three paragraphs.

[font=Vijaya][size=150][color=hexcodehere][u]Other:[/u][/color][/size][/font]
Optional. Whatever else you think should be included goes here.


*You may design the character sheet however you'd like as long as you include all the information I've asked for.

*For creatures or planet people (whatever you wanna call them), feel free to be creative! They can be anything you like except for humans. There are no humans that live on the planet. I'll also have to ask for no winged humans because, well, those count as humans. HOWEVER, I will allow wings such as something dragon-like. If you want to play a character with wings that you don't think would be angelic but you aren't sure if it'd be acceptable, feel free to ask!

*You may not make your character a fairy. However, if you'd like your character to have one or two fae companions, that's fine with me.

*Also, I'm sorry, but we are only accepting female (or non-male) characters for the two open spots. I will not be opening up any more spots once the open ones have been taken or reserved.

1) No god-modding/power-playing.

2) Absolutely NO one-liners. This is a semi-literate to a literate roleplay. I require at least 500 words per post. I understand having bad days, though, so it’s acceptable to have less on occasion, but not every time. On the otherhand, please don't take a thousand words to describe an irrelevant tree your character happened to pass. Quality over quantity!

3) Please try to reply every day or every other day. If you're going to be gone for a bit, let me know in the OOC so we can try to slow down the RP for you so you don't get too lost and drop out. If you ever need help catching up, send me a PM and I'll be glad to help! If you're gone for five days without warning, I'll kill off your character.

4) I want literacy. Don’t type “lyk dis.”

5) I will judge your literacy by your character sheet. If it's set up sloppily, illiterate, and hard to read, I will reject your character. If it looks like there was an attempt made, I will ask you to tweak a few things, but we're really asking for literacy and someone willing to stay with us! Please and thank you~! (▰˘◡˘▰)

6) This is a mature RP. That means there will be cursing and likely mentions of blood, death, and dying. That said, romance is encouraged, but keep it PG-15—any more and take it to the PMs. (Immature mentions are also allowed! Duh!! But keep things within the site rules!)

7) Please try to keep things organized. I really dislike confusion and I'm sure others do as well. I have the right to kick you from the RP and you need to oblige to these rules. Otherwise, if you do follow these rules, we'll always be good here. ^^ If you have any questions, feel free to send me a PM or ask in the OOC!

8) You MUST reserve the character in the OOC section. Do NOT just make it and submit it. Please and thank you. Multiple reservations are allowed. If more than one person reserves a position, then I will allow both people to submit a character and choose the winner. Please don't be a sore loser. ;n; I hate making the decision in the first place, but I hate having people mad at me over it when they knew what they were getting into.

9) By asking to be a part of this roleplay, you are stating that you’re willing to stay and see it through to the end. Do not join and drop out somewhere along the way (unless your character is killed--which will not be a sudden thing and will be discussed with you, with the exception of rule number 3). If you join, you stay. Otherwise, please don’t bother as it will only hinder the rest of us. Why make the effort for something you’re not going to be part of?

10) Now have fun~ •ᴥ•
