Alchemy, Homunculi, Transmutations, Bringing the dead back to life; It all seems like a dream, doesn't it? Maybe to you, but to the people of Amestris, it's called "Daily Life"

Introduction

(All info taken from Wiki because I'm way too lazy to do this stuff)
Alchemy
Image
Alchemy is, as it is understood in the Fullmetal Alchemist series, the ancient metaphysical science/mystical art of manipulating and altering matter by using natural energy. This act is known as "Transmutation" and its sequence is usually described as:
Comprehension - Understanding the inherent structure and properties of the atomic or molecular makeup of a particular material to be transmuted, including the flow and balance of potential and kinetic energy within.
Deconstruction - Using energy to break down the physical structure of the identified material into a more malleable state so as to be easily reshaped into a new form.
Reconstruction - Continuing the flow of energy so as to reform the material into a new shape.
The proper application of this craft requires not only a full understanding of chemistry and ancient alchemical theory, but also a sort of natural talent towards recognizing and manipulating the physical objects with energy, which require uncommon levels of intelligence and aptitude. Those remarkable individuals capable of studying and practicing alchemy are known as "Alchemists".
There are many paths by which alchemists can transmute the various substances of the world, with some alchemists being said to transmute by way of the Four Classical Elements (Water, Earth, Fire and Air) and some by way of the Three Essential Principles (salt, sulfur and mercury), but the basic tenet at the very foundation of all alchemy is that of Equivalent Exchange.

Homunculi ~ The Seven Deadly Sins
Homunculus (Latin for "Little Human", plural Homunculi) refers to the mythological concept of an artificially created human, presumably brought into existence by certain means of alchemy. Though a common concept, well known and understood by alchemists in Amestris, the idea of homunculi is regarded as no more than a farce or faraway fantasy as no individual or group of alchemists has come anywhere close to successfully creating such a being in officially recorded history. Even so, alchemists have been forbidden by the Amestrian government to attempt or research in the transmutation of humans and State Alchemists have such a restriction as part of their creed.
However, off the official record, not only one, but several of these creatures have been created in arcane, sinister secrecy. In the most relevant sense of the word, "Homunculus" refers to the eight individuals who make up the main antagonistic group of the Fullmetal Alchemist series. These created humans, named for the seven deadly sins (Pride, Lust, Greed, Envy, Sloth, Gluttony and Wrath), along with their Father, are beings with incredible longevity, astonishing regenerative properties and a host of varied superhuman abilities. The Homunculi usually carry the mark of the Ouroboros upon their bodies and are identified as such by said mark.




Amestris
Image
Central City
Central is the seat of government in Amestris. The National Central Library, Central Command, the 5 National Laboratories, and Amestris' Parliament are all located in Central. Aside from its symbol as a military headquarters, Central is also a bustling metropolis and arguably Amestris' largest city, complete with nearly everything Amestrian society has to offer as well as a lasting and rarely disturbed sense of peace created by its proximity to the government's imposing presence. After the events in the eastern regions of Amestris and the Elrics' excursion to the southern region, much of the Fullmetal Alchemist story takes place in Central, as it also serves as the Homunculi's home base, the heart of which is located deep beneath Central Command Headquarters.

Xing
Xing is a country in the world of Fullmetal Alchemist, located east of the main country of the series, Amestris, across the Eastern Desert.
Xing is a Monarchy, whose monarch holds the title of Emperor. It's composed by fifty hereditary clans all under the rule of a single Emperor, who cements his rule by taking the daughter of each clan's chief to be his concubine and bear him a single heir for each clan.
While this method works to ensure fealty to the Emperor by binding each clan to him by blood through their ruling families, it creates a great deal of contention between the clans as all the heirs compete to inherit the throne. As it stands, it is common for the various heirs and their vassals to make assassination attempts against their royal siblings in order to clear the playing field.
As of 1914, there are forty-three heirs (twenty-four princes and nineteen princesses) competing savagely to ascend to the throne held by their father, who is reported to be in failing health.


Ishval
Ishval (also spelled as Ishbal) is a region of Southeastern Amestris on the border of the Eastern Desert. Presumably once its own nation, owing to the vastly different cultural practices of Ishval's people and the general populace of greater Amestris as a whole, Ishval was likely absorbed as a part of Amestris' expansion policies. However, the region remained a point of contention and was ultimately razed as a result of the Ishval Civil War.

Re: The Story of Us All

I hate Lori.. =___=" She cheated on poor Rick. D:

Re: The Story of Us All

hello, this looks very interesting I was wondering could I submit a character or something, and could it be an alchemist please. I could submit a character tomorrow

Daryl or Lori

Re: The Story of Us All

When are we going to start? ^-^

Re: The Story of Us All

Daryl<3 Daryl for sure. :D

Re: The Story of Us All

My favourite character is a toss-up between Daryl or Glenn.

Re: The Story of Us All

I. Love. The Walking. Dead. 0-0 <3

Re: The Story of Us All

This might seem like a random, somewhat out-of-place question, but who has watched The Walking Dead TV series? I've only recently got into it (but I loved the Telltale Game) because Sky put Season 1 & 2 on demand. I was just wondering if there were any other survivors among us.

Re: The Story of Us All

I posted my Sloth lady! ^-^ ....I think.. xP

Re: The Story of Us All

Nevermind.. D: Someone took Wrath.... I'll make a Sloth!! :D

Re: The Story of Us All

Sorry for all the hold up guys! I'll be finishing my character soon, and I'll get you all down, and I'll also start the rp once a few more characters get submitted! ^u^

Re: The Story of Us All

@Chiaki- Nahhhh. I wasn't offended at all. I was going to end up changing for greed eventually since it seems to go with my idea anyway :3

Re: The Story of Us All

I'd like to grab the second male state alchemist.

Re: The Story of Us All

I would prefer if it was a homuncli cuz Idris could realize that it wasn't an alchemist. So yeah... if anyone's humuncli char is being stalked by Idris... look out, oh and she isn't your average stalker... just a heads up!!!
Can't wait to start...
PS. sorry im just waiting for someone to post because I hate posting first... my posts always seem bad compared to others.

Re: The Story of Us All

Sorry... Have I offended you? I can change if you like... *awkward look*

Re: The Story of Us All

Well, since someone else wants Prode, I'll just switch my role to um, I dunno. Gimme a min xD.

Re: The Story of Us All

Okay I finished up Mayu γƒͺンーけゃん let me know if she's alright. ^^

Re: The Story of Us All

Yeah! Sure thing Chiaki! Ah, and I hope for it to be semi-literate, or literate because I'm also trying to improve my writing xD (Not really in the OOC... but yeah...) I write books, so it's about impossible for me to start up or write an illiterate rp!

And nahhh! I'd say the Homunculi are free to roam around and do what they wish, but most likely making trouble than being all goody-goody, or that'd be a bit unusual!

Lol xD Sure thing! Most of the alchemists may probably got for the homunculi anyways ouo

Re: The Story of Us All

He, me again. I'm thinking of getting my char, Idris, involved by her being hired to kill someone. If any of you want her to try and kill your char she will try. Oh but obviously she won't. Oh and if you do could you say why anyone would want them dead. I don't want her to go chasing a char that she has no reason to kill. I mean, who would kill an innocent.

Re: The Story of Us All

Excuse me, May I reserve Pride? Also, before I create a character, I want to ask if this is a literate or at least a semi-literate rp? I want to improve my writing skill so...well, if it's a semi-literate rp, I'd join this in a heartbeat. I find the concept of the rp very interesting. XD

Chiaki

EDIT: Oh, and the Homunculus, do they have anyone to lead them? Or they just sort of do what they want?
