It is a medieval fantasy. Its about a boy that must take on his father's responsibility as protector of the realm, and carry his burden. He honestly will have no clue at first just what that means. He goes out on journeys, quests to improve himself as he

Introduction

Image


This is isn't a story about a particular kingdom, or king. Though a king may determine a man's fate with a single word, it is the Protector of the Realm that decides the destiny of the lands of all Toril at the point of a sword. His strength is inhuman, his ability supernatural. Protecters come from a different pedigree of being. Stronger, faster, and capable of enduring much more physical pain and duress than the average human being. Some think that Protectors come from the gods--a fusion of mortal kin and a god.

There are unwritten, unspoken rules to being a "good" Protector. A protector can not hold an office of power such as being king. It removes the sense of privilege, so it does not corrupt the obligation a Protector has to the people--not a singular person. He can not let is ideals such as his views on right or wrong--they must abide the laws of mortal kin. While they are celebrated amongst many races they can not accept bribes of gifts or currency.

Our hero, Adrian's father Helios was one such being. A legacy was left behind, a void needing to be filled after he died. Helios killed the Arch-Demon Argon when he invaded the realm with his legion. He slew a kraken from the depths of the sea and even fought a thousand headed hydra and came out on top. However, it was his deadly duel with a fellow demigod-and Adrian's mother, Aellô that ultimately killed Helios.

It was a strange thing, for a wife to kill her husband. However, Aellô as much as she loved her husband--she loved her child more. She did not want Adrian to grow up to be what his father was. She wanted him to have a normal life, one without the burdens of a Protector. Yet, fate was not so forgiving. It would not see Adrian as anything less than what his father had envisioned him as. Helios did not hate his wife for attacking and even killing him.

Nevertheless, Aellô would keep a promise she made t her late husband--that if the world needed a hero, if their son wanted to take his place--she would give him Helios' sword. An artifact of great power. It could both, cut through diamonds and change shape into many different weapons. Despite how hard Aellô had fought to keep her son away from his destiny--when her son came of age, he felt very different, he felt the need to do great things to help the people but also because a looming shadow had fallen over the lands.

A great virulent pestilence has come. Like a scourge or a plague, the dead have begun to stir in the shadows as they begin to grow more numerous. Having no idea of what will be expected of him, no idea what will become of him in his quest. Adrian's father's friend and confidant has sought his former friend's son out to train him for his quest. Though only a mortal himself, he has seen his friend battle many things on his road to becoming a legend. He knows what it takes, he knows the pressure his pupil will be under, the stress and the pain he's going to have to endure. But also, Adrian's friend whose been a constant companion to her supernatural friend. She's watched him grow up through the oppression of other children and their unfair, often cruel treatment of him. But she'd always believed that he was special somehow.

Re: [OOC] The Undrentide Shadows

Looks interesting. My question, though, is can we create our own characters, or can we only play as those described in the intro? (I.E., the mentor and the friend.) If not, then could I create my own character to serve as an initial antagonist, then join the heroes later on?
