Wings of Lore

Before the Earth, dragons lived in a seperate world. The clans were at peace, mostly. The Zhinmoveir clan was stable, but when war spreads, what ties will be strained... or broken?

Introduction

Before the Earth came into existance, dragons lived and coexisted in a seperate world. Clans of multiple families lived together in communites led by the Guiderdragon. The clans were at peace... mostly. The Zhinmoveir clan was stable under the rule of the Guiderdragon Azmirian, but their neighbors, Voluetarr and Maentiph had been locked in conflict for decades. When war breaks out and spreads, what ties will be strained... or broken?

Alrighty, to work! Thank you for checking out the thread, I hope it works well! Please read the rules because I don't feel like retyping them.

The world of Xian-faehr (zhahn-faeer) is bountiful and dragons are the highest life form on the planet. The Zhinmoveir (zhin-moov-e-eer) clan resides in a cliffside community shaped like a horseshoe with many caves which serve as homes, places of buisness, and shops. The steep walls surround an airspace and community area that makes this place special. The two neighboring clans, Maentiph (ma-eyn-tiff) and Voluetarr (val-you-eh-tar) have been rivals for decades. Lately, things have escalated and violence has broken out. Zhinmoveir is caught in the crossfire. This is the story of that time.

To make your OC there are some basic things you need to know. There are five breeds of dragon, and the descriptions and anatomies of each are drawn and written here: http://wingsoflorepictures.webs.com/
*Side note: Shamans are very rare. If you want to be one please message me beforehand
Choose whichever you want and go from there. Keep in mind, this is only the genetics of the dragon. Not all battle dragons may want to fight, and not all heavy dragons may prefer to walk. Be creative.

When naming your OC, pay attention to the dialect I have set down so far. These names are meant to be said aloud. If it sounds mystical, chances are it's good. Think odd vowel combinations and rarely used consonants.

I ask that each RPer play up to three dragons since there are many characters. They may belong to the Zhinmoveir, Voluetarr, or Maentiph clans, OR may be rogue. Again, few and far between. The clans are made up of family, so don't be afraid to ask another RPer to be a family member. NPC members are fine, too. There is a hierarchy, so don't expect to automatically be top dog... er... dragon...

Zhinmoveir clan:
Guiderdragon: Azmirian
(Up to fifteen adult dragons)

Voluetarr clan:
OPEN
(Up to seven adult dragons)

Maentiph clan:

The wind smelled of roasting meat and grains and laughter floated on the air. The flickering glow of flames licked at the path outside of the GuiderDragon's cave, giving the place a homey, welcoming feel. The Greatfire was lit far beneath the cave in the space between the curved cliff faces. Even from the air, the fire was obviously sizeable, blazing heartily and casting it's loving warmth and light far up the faces, lighting every path and cavefront. The translucent wings of flying dragons glowed their colors with the light shining through the webbing, creating a dynamic mosaic of fluttering color. The bright stars overhead winked down on the sight of joy and peace.

GuiderDragon Azmirian smiled down at the nightly bustle of his clan. Zhinmoveir, the clan of color. The Greatfire's light caressed his face gently, illuminating his compassionate smile and shining eyes. Rarely did a night pass that he left this post. He gleamed with pride at all these dragons had accomplished, all they had been graced to achieve. After StarGuiderDragon Chielmo's untimely death twelve years ago, the clan was shaken to the core. The neighboring clans were restless and hungry for members and land. Without a steady eye and careful footing, everything could have fallen. Azmirian was young, a mere twenty-eight, still an adolescent, and not at all special in his own eyes. Yet, it was unanimous that he be raised to the position. He was terrified, the first night in the GuiderDragon's cave was filled with night torments and ghosts of the past. The place smelled of the GuiderDragon Chielmo, but he was gone for good, and this tiny dragon who was barely old enough to go on hunts and not at all ready to be on his own was elevated to such a height. It was an awful night, possibly the worst of his life. Food was provided, as always was done for the GuiderDragon, but his parents had to stay at the family home. He knew it was better that way, he couldn't seem weak in a time of tentativity and turmoil.

There was one unexpected light in the gloom that night. A sleek dragon had entered the GuiderDragon's cave unannounced and without reason, lit a fire, and helped Azmirian become settled. His first words had been, "So, where do you want your nest to go?" Without introductions or prefaces of any sort, the sleek had helped the attack dragon without asking for any compensation. At the end of the night, the two knew each other very well. Azmirian told stories of his humble past, and the unexplained sleek had proffered stories about his own adventures with a dragon named "Ti-iriel." Azmirian knew nearly every dragon in the camp, at least names, and there was none by that one. They were good stories though, full of wonder, yet the dragon was only a young adult, couldn't have been more than fourty-five or so. Eventually, the sun had come up and he stood to leave. Upon Azmirian's request for his name, he had gotten the response, "Ti-iyian." The crazy one, as he was usually called. The terrified GuiderDragon had asked Ti-iyian to live with him, if only for a time--

Then the dragon of his thoughts approached. Azmirian smiled instincitvely, turned his head to face the same sized dragon and touched noses with him in greeting.

Ti-iyian greeted his friend in the usual manner, and moved himself into place beside him. He didn't speak, but communication wasn't needed. They sat in friendly silence, neither feeling compelled to speak, instead both being content to gaze at the world around them, taking in its natural beauty. Absentmindedly, Ti-iyian's claw rose to the song stone which hung on a cord around his neck. He stroked it gently, quiet notes emanating from it, playing through the night air.

He'd always had a way with those stones. No other dragon Azmirian had ever met or heard of had ever been able to create those song stones. Ti-iyian was a wonder, no doubt about it, and the best friend Azmirian could ever ask for. Ti- didn't treat him like some revered powerful dragon that was to be appeased at every moment. Ti- treated Azmirian like he would any other dragon, with respect and friendship. For that, the GuiderDragon was ever grateful. Ti- was the most faithful companion he had ever had, even if most thought the sleek to be mad.

The GuiderDragon turned his dark head to look at his friend's distant gaze for a moment before smiling again and standing. The pure moonlight from above played with the warm firelight from below to create a swirling mosaic of color over his streamlined form. His deep blue body swirled black and purple with the fire, and his forest green armour scutes glinted with his motion, reflecting whichever source of light touched the surface. He stretched his huge wings over himself and Ti-, huge black and ivory webbing working wonders with the light from either side. But most striking were his eyes. They gleamed silver, bright and pure, pensive slitted pupils looking down to the Greatfire below them and the swirls of color from the dragons flying from place to place in the early night.

With a nod to Ti-iyian, he beat his wings downwards once with power and lifted smoothly into the air. A few strokes later he was lazily spiralling down to ground level and the Greatfire.

Ti-yian remained on the ground, continuing to fiddle with the song stone he wore. It was his mother who had taught him the art of making them at a young age, before she had passed away. The process was simple really, at least he thought it so, but the result was so mystical that none had ever approached him asking for the secret, figuring it to be extremely complex. He played on as Azmirian soared in the quiet, empty sky above him. His claws working the smoothed surface of the rock, his eyes were free to wander across the dark blue abyss above him, dancing from star to star, each speck of light a jumping off point for the next. He watched Azmirian's dark form slowly drift down towards the Greatfire before turning and retreating into the GuiderDragon's cave.

Rekindling the fire, he lay against one wall, gazing at the flames that danced around the branches before him. He had lived in this cave with Azmirian ever since the GuiderDragon had asked him to stay on his first night. He preferred it there, as opposed to the other caves, since the GuiderDragon's cave was significantly larger than others, and with the three of them occupying it, it seemed to be just the right size. In fact, at that moment his ears caught the familiar sound of footsteps at the entrance as his other close friend Ti-iriel joined him in the cave. She nodded to him in greeting, then took her place next to him, positioned so that they could share the light of the fire.

"Beautiful night tonight." Ti-iyan commented. She looked at him, laughter in her eyes at his pathetic attempt at small talk. It was something they avoided usually, tending not to talk unless there was truly something to say, however tonight something had driven him to. He needed just a bit more contact this night, he wasn't sure why. Inexplicably understanding him as she always did, Ti-iriel leaned closer an rested her head on his shoulder. Comforted, he closed his own eyes, resting his head on the ground next to her. He'd let the GuiderDragon have his night, now was time for sleep. Still stroking the song stone, he drifted off.

Syan woke to the sound of a distant melody. For a moment he lay lazily, nestled on the soft earth wondering whether to render the pleasing sound a mere of part of one of his fantastical dreams or reality. It took a minute for him to recall what he'd been doing-ah yes, the message. He'd dosed off during a brief a rest. Of course, it was never surprising to him that his peers had abandoned him. His current predicament was not much of a new sort to him. He knew not his exact location; and the peaceful looking settlement before him was certainly not a part of his clan.

Hungry and lost; slightly feeling adventurous if anything, he made way towards the source of the beautiful song. Any one who could play such a lovely tune must be charitable enough to share a morsel or two- was his foolish assumption.

Not feeling up to lifting his great torso in the air, he walked his way calmly and patiently towards the brightness.
