The 5 Kingdoms

The 5 Kingdoms

0 INK

(CLOSED) A world is on the brink of destruction as 5 Kingdoms wage war on each other. In this bloody free for all, a group of warriors band together to stop the violence. It's them against the world...And no one knows the outcome.

456 readers have visited The 5 Kingdoms since Arekkusu created it.

Introduction

CLOSED! In the ancient world, on the continent of Selmar, 5 Kingdoms rule the lands. Each prospers thanks to the magic that resides within their borders. Peace had thrived on Selmar for the past 500 years, but the unnecessary killing of a nobleman triggers a chain reaction that ultimately leads to war. Now, fifty years later, a bloody free-for-all continues to threaten the existence of life on the continent. To stop this violence once and for all, a group of warriors from each Kingdom have put their differences aside and joined forces. They are the best of the best. The Elite fighters. And now, it's up to them to stop the bloodshed, or die trying. It's them against the world..And no one knows the outcome. One thing is for certain though, at the end of all this, one force will stand victorious.

To the North lies the Air Temples, home of the Northern Kingdom. It is well known for it's agile fighters, none matching their speed. The Air Temples also produces the world's silver, which has been in high demand recently. The Air Temples wish to remain neutral in the war, offering their silver to anyone with enough money. The element here is Kaze (Wind)
Farther South, in the center of Selmar, lies the Kingdom of Iwa. The largest of all five Kingdoms, Iwa is renown for it's vast market. Every day, hundreds, if not thousands, of merchants from around the world flock to Iwa to trade their merchandise. The sheer size of the Kingdom has made it's military the best, causing problems for the other four nations. Their element is Do (Earth)
To the East, hidden in a vast forest, resides the Kingdom of the Elves. This is the oldest living race on Selmar, dating back thousands of years. The elves are known for their marksmanship, and many have become well known mercenaries. The Kingdom itself lies in the heart of the Zenbu forest, near a large river that pools out into the Zenbu Lake. Mizu (Water) is the elf's element.
West of the Kingdom of Iwa is Moyasu, land of the fire breathers. This mining Kingdom produces the continent's iron, coal, gold, and a number of other things. When the war broke out, a faction of soldiers broke away from Moyasu to protect the mines, wanting to gain a quick buck. They supply all five armies, and continue to supply the rest of the continent. Moyasu's element is Hi (Fire)
To the South, on the edge of the continent, nestled in the Southern Mountains, is the Kingdom of Hibana. The people here train in combat, hardening themselves in the harsh enviorment. Hibana produces some of the best warriors alive. Many stories of the bravest fighters and the most daring combatants are depicted from the men and women of Hibana. They control the element Rakurai (Lightning)

In a quiet village, a single man wanders through the streets. Night had just fallen, leaving the roads empty and silent. The man soon stumbles upon what he has been looking for; an inn where he is to meet his brothers in arms. A quick flicker of light illuminates the figure's body, revealing the insignia of Moyasu on the man's back.

Jiro Kazuki
Appearance: Image
Age: 21
Race: Human
Profession: Mercenary
Element: Fire
Description: Jiro hails from the Moyasu Kingdom, where he lived and grew up. At the age of seven, his parents were killed in a raid on the village where he lived. After witnessing such an incident, Jiro swore to avenge his parent's death. He dedicated his life to mastering the art of the sword, and devoted much time and effort into his magic abilities. When he was 15 years old, arrogance got the better of him, and he ventured out to fulfill his vow. He came across several members of the group that killed his only family, and when he confronted them, he was out powered and outnumbered. Jiro spent the next 3 years as a slave in the Kingdom of Hibana. He was freed though, when an invasion from Iwa caused an uproar in Hibana. Since then, Jiro has made a new vow: to stop the war. Now, the swordsman wanders Selmar, looking for anyone willing to fight for the same cause.

Personality: Jiro is a laid back, easy going swordsman. He has recently seen the better side of things, and has taken a new look on life. He can be very cheerful and outgoing, but will turn savage and ruthless once he enters battle. He has a rather short temper, and will not tolerate arrogance or overconfidence. He can be seen sleeping much of the time, or engulfed in a book. Some say he's much more lazy than helpful, though Jiro has proven himself capable on several occasions.

Equipment: Short sword and a small knapsack he carries on his back.

I need at least three others to get started. Afterwards other characters can be added in. I haven't decided the max for the number of elite warriors, but I'm aiming for around a dozen or so.

Toggle Rules

No one liners! (I despise them!!)

No God modding (It's just annoying)

No killing off other characters. (Unless that character really really wants to die.)

Cursing is allowed, but don't overuse it. (You son of a b**** just wait until I get my f*****g hands on you mother f****r! I'm gonna wrap my f*****g hands around that f*****g neck of yours and strangle you, you b*****d!) <<<Yeah, that's a no no.

Other than that, just respect myself and the other role players. (And have fun too!)

Sanguis watched as a random event occurred right in front of his very own eyes. Amusing, yet slightly annoying in some way. And after some child play and random dancing move, the orb had bounced of to wherever it wanted to go, obviously waiting for him and Ku to follow. Truthful, Sanguis didn't have the intention of following the flame, and would rather have himself turn back to finish what he originally entered the town for. Something pulled him towards the direction of following the bouncing fireball, nothing physical, but his mind seemed to want him to follow it and find out what it has in store for Sanguis. "Fine, fine. I swear, if my mind ever gets his own will I am going to ask someone to remove my brain." Sanguis forgot that he had company, though what little would this change, they barely knew each other and from the looks of it it wasn't really going to be a permanent 'team up' anyway. With another shrug of his shoulder, Sanguis stepped into the direction the fireball was bouncing to. Getting more and more amused over what strange event he had pulled himself into. "Bless fate for making my life completely unpredictable." He said while grinning slightly. A feeling of this being one of the longer adventures was growing inside Sanguis's head.

Laeria didn't say anymore after that. "Oh by the way my name's Laeria and that old man back there is Harr, as in har har har!" Harr pretended like he didn't hear that and kept walking. Paying no attention to the approach people behind him, they were probably friends of this group or else that man wouldn't have left his orb behind. It was only when he picked up the footsteps of very silent people, like they weren't even there. Laeria was again not focusing and Harr was left with protecting her and the other elf. Quickly he took out his dagger and seemed as if he teleported up ahead.

"Laeria, hide quickly!" Harr continued to run ahead, Laeria dove into the bushes and beckoned for the other elf to come hide with her. She said, "If you want to fight then fight but Harr likes to fight alone." Up ahead his hearing wasn't giving him much location of the enemy, and he couldn't see any shape of, really of anything. "What kind of cowards hide from a fight, show yourselves and fight me fairly." Taking out his crossbow he turned left and right, trying to pinpoint their whereabouts. They walked so softly even he could barely get a hint at them.

Jiro jumped up. He was mad now. What was supposed to be a quiet walk through the night turned into a fight. And with a bunch of damn ghosts! An idea or two popped into his head, but what good would they do at a time like this? He needed to stay focused and figure out a way to make the unseen see able. He paced himself, walking around in a small circle. Jiro's one fear in all of Selmar was becoming a reality, and it ate away at his insides. Damn it, damn it, damn it! Why ghosts?! He flicked the tip of his blade into the night air that surrounded him, but it hit nothing. He could just level the place with a blast of fire, but that would do more harm than good. A shove to his back caused Jiro to spin around and hack at the empty space. Once again, he hit nothing. Alright, screw you spirits. His eyes flashed a dark crimson red as he plunged his blade into the ground. Suddenly, the world became a light red in his eyes. Waves of a much darker red were bouncing off of each object and person in the proximity; almost like sonar. With this, Jiro was able to find his hidden targets.

They were ugly things. Standing at about 7 feet, with dark looking skin. One of the arms on the monsters were deformed and limp. It looked as thin as a twig. The other arm though, was massive. Not with muscle, but with fat. The bodies of the monsters were hefty and bounced as they walked. One was about to strike Harr from behind. "Hey old man! Behind you!"

Xion stood still with his eyes closed, it seemed like he was listening carefully to the movements and wind, yet not only that, infact he was charging energy. soon enough both his arms where covered in powerful static, giving off enough light for the old man (Harr) to see. Xion slowly opened his electric blue eyes, as they flashed a dim blue. "Alright...no more games.." he gribbed his steel nunchucks and soon enough they were covered in static. This made the area that little more brighter, he twirled it fron the front, to the back then the side to the other side, leaving a trail of eletrical enegry with each movement, then he threw it high in the air, as it spun the freeky looking things glared at it, it seemed like they couldnt get their eyes off it, Xion grinned as he sent a strong elbow to one of the 'things' face, he spun round so Xion's back was facing it, Xion sent another elbow to its gut, then as xion was spinning around to give it a left hook, his arm seemed to get more violent as marking began to show on his hand, the force of the punch sent the thing flying into a small house. All this seemed to be lightening quick as Xion speed was close to a Person from the Air nation.

The nunchuck started to lower, as Xion sent another one of the things into the air with a uppercut, he grabbed his nunchucks and finished the thing with one last blow with the high voltaged nunchuck, The attack not only hurt the thing badly it also shocked him due to the contact with so much electricy, infact it was the same voltage as a powerful thunderbolt. The thing crashed down to earth with a thud.. it didnt get up after that. Xion sighed as he knew that there was much more to face.. he turned swiftly to see a flying boulder heading straight towards jiro. "Jiro!! behind you!" it seemed like these 'things' was'nt as stupid as he once thought. They knew that once Jiro was disracted, he was clear enough to attack. "hmm disraction.." Xion said to himself.. by the time noticed it was too late, he was hit hard by a flying boulder, so hard infact that it caused the boulder to break on contact, Xion crashed to the ground..and for a while he didnt get back up.

Mashiro had left the path a awhile back and was instead heading to the faint flame he had seen in the distance. "i really hope one of the people in that area is the fire nation guy i'm looking for.... wait was it even a guy they didnt actually say" Mashiro said only just theimking about this. he knew that there where people close and the where moving about quite a bit he could feel each set of feet as they moved across the ground. it didn't take mashiro long to arrive at the village where it seemed like a group of people where fighting nothing but thin air but he knew better that that there was other foot steps of people he clearly couldnt see.

As Mashiro watched things unfold he didnt want to get involved in the fight because if he started he didn't know if he would stop at just the nemy since for all he knew eveyone here was his enemy. he was stood on top of a slight hill with the moon behind him and he heard one of the fighters shout to another that was when he saw a boulder hurtaling towards the back of a fighter (Jiro). "thats not playing fair in my opinion its bad enough to fight invisible but throwing boulders is just wrong" mashiro said. he stood up straight raised his walking stick and slammed that bottom into the ground with a loud thud, and instantly a solid earth wall erupted from the ground behind Jiro and took the full force of the boulder letting the rock just hit the fall with no energy to move it.

Jiro jumped back. An earth wall had appeared out of nowhere and stopped the boulder that was about to hit him. He turned his gaze to see the cause of the wall atop a hill. He gave the boy a quick nod before turning his attention back to the fight. "Ok then. My turn!" He tugged his sword out from the ground and jumped straight up into the air. He quickly sheathed the blade and set both his hands on the handle. They began to glow a bright red, and so did the sheath as Jiro slowly lowered back down to the earth below. He didn't move until his feet were firmly back on the ground, and the second they were, he pulled out his sword and swung. The silver blade had turned white hot, and each swing Jiro made caused a series of flames to erupt out of the sword. The fire licked the air, hitting the invisible monsters, soon burning them away.

Jiro stopped though, when the ground began to shake and tremble. It felt like something far more bigger than what they were facing was closing in on the group. For the first time, Jiro noticed that Xion had been knocked out. "Hey! Xion, get up!" He shouted, but it was no good. The giant tremors muted his voice, so instead he ran over to Xion and heaved him up onto his back, running back to the rest of the group before they both were crushed.

Re: [OOC] The 5 Kingdoms

woops. sorry, I was on vacation and couldn't post... can you reopen the roleplay? :<

Re: [OOC] The 5 Kingdoms

'Tis edited, changed to Wind.

Re: [OOC] The 5 Kingdoms

Yeah still accepting characters. And I like your bio, but shadow ins't one of the elemental magics that are used in the RP. So, all you gotta do is change that to either wind, water, fire, earth, or lightning and you're good!

Re: [OOC] The 5 Kingdoms

Hello! I've made a character sheet and submitted to the RP, it you're still accepting that is. If you're not, I apologize for not asking first, but it seemed cool.

There really isn't any specific way to use the magic. Either verbal casting or manipulation is fine. It's up to you. I tend to go with manipulation because it gives me more freedom rather than versing a few lines from a book. But again, it's all up to you.
