Village Life: Hidden Instincts

Village Life: Hidden Instincts


Tanalus is in a state of civil war, all because of the crusaders. Only a few villages are peaceful. In one village however, priests and crusader have disappeared. But in it lies a secret that even terrifies the villagers.

550 readers have visited Village Life: Hidden Instincts since Aniihya created it.


The empire of Tanalus is in a state of civil war. It started when the emperor converted to the beliefs of the empires former enemies and tried to force the rest of the empire to it. While the loyalists followed the emperor, most of the empire rebelled. Additionally what angered some loyalists, was that the emperor requested help from the crusaders of the former enemy. This anger resulted in the assassination of the emperor which was retaliated against the villagers resulting in massacres, until entire counties fought back. Only a few villages remain peaceful and haven't been visited by the crusaders yet.

One of these villages was Andrases, a village in a valley between rock formations. But then the village lord converted. He commanded the village temple, built into a mountain to be desecrated. The entire village refused to obey. Just a day after he sent out a request to the crusaders, he fell very ill. Some believe it is punishment of the god and some believe someone poisoned the lord. Upon the request, the empire sent out ten crusaders. They made it to the village, but it is unclear what happened after as the crusaders suddenly disappeared.

It seems that the villagers might be reawakening as legend has it that the people of Andrases are decendants of maneating demon who had forgotten their instincts long ago. It is known that it is happening but it even terrifies the villagers themselves as they fear becoming monsters. A few view it so that they must accept it to control it but most cant. With more crusaders approaching will they go crazy or learn to accept it for their own protection?

Andrases: A village surrounded by mountains. In one of the mountains there is the village temple, only the fast of it peaks out of the mountain. The village has many farms but also craftsmen and masons. For hundreds of years, it had been an obligation for the villages to learn archery and swordsmanship ages 14 and up, frequently training in it, as the village lies a bit far from the capital and the villagers must rely on themselves. Due to the villages isolation, the culture is quite different from the rest of the empire. While the rest of the empire believes in the old gods and gradually in the "one" god, Andrases believes in the ancient gods and ancestors. The village temple has existed for thousands of years.
The clothing in the village has different traits that the rest of the empire. Men typically wear leather tunics, boots and shoals while women normally wear rather elegant dresses or robes with either a turtleneck underdress or tight fitting jewelry such as a collar or a choker made of cloth, silk, leather or silver. Some villagers wear the typical bone armor under their clothing and rarely over their clothing.

The normal used weapons in Andrases use the high quality dark steel which is rare in the empire. Most have bows or swords while some actually possess the strength and skill for weapons such as hammers, greatswords, halberds, great scythes or chain scythes. Some who work at the temple use claw gloves.

Character sheet:

Clothing (fantasy, fitting or at least close to village description)
Occupation (there are no male/female typical jobs in Andrases, a man could be a gatherer and a woman could be a warrior)
Skills (nothing exaggerated)
Feeling about the heritage of the village (is your character afraid of what he/she might be or rather proud of it)
Alignment (optional. Possibilities: Good, neutral, evil. You may use stuff like lawful or chaotic if you want. Please describe how your character is like this.)
