The Story Lives

The Story Lives


Beings born from the thoughts and feeling behind stories, evil motives to exploit their power, a slowly dying race and the fate of the world all at stake as pairs and trios work towards a common goal without realizing it.

Where to begin? Well, to begin, a Pageling is a being, born of the thought and feeling behind a story. While not exactly human, a Pageling will take a human form to blend in. More often than naught, the forms they take will reflect the type of story the Pageling is from. For instance, a tale of love will be presented as a beautiful girl or handsome boy whereas a tale fraught with adventure will have a sturdy Pageling that you would expect to be the story's protagonist. This is true for every Pageling in some degree. But what makes them worthy of this story is their abilities.

Each Pageling has the power of papercraft. No not some cheap parlor trick. Any child with a sheet of paper could fold it into a flower or swan. No, Pagelings are able to conjure paper out of thin air, and with practice, make it take on the shape and abilities of anything they wish. If they want a sword, all they have to do is imagine it and a paper sword will appear to them, stronger than steel but light as a feather. Rumor has it that they can even make creatures from their powers. This makes them not only different, but valuable as weapons and hunted by many. However, these abilities only come forth after a Pageling has been fully realised and practiced them. Most Pagelings go about their lives without realising what they are.

But there always those who know more than you.



The Guardians are an ancient order of highly skilled warriors, born to protect the Pagelings and trained in martial, exotic, and very rarely, arcane arts. They live to protect the Pagelings, whether their wards know this or not. Day in and day out, they watch the Pagelings from a respectable distance, always hidden in plain sight. Many will pass as teachers, coaches, co workers, students, neighbours and the like to remain close to their wards. While often times, they're not needed, more and more Guardians and their Pagelings have gone missing in the past months.

Many suspect the Fallen, Guardians who wish to abuse the power of the Pagelings for personal gain, of these disappearances. While the Fallen are indeed a factor, they've never been organized or had enough power to make a move. With next to no activity from them in the past few generations, many assumed they were extinct but these disappearances leave little room for other possibilities.

The others fear what comes next but none fear it enough yet.
