Arcosius Registrations

Post by Guest on 27th December 2011, 10:50 am

Arcosius

World:

This is the prehistoric world of Arcosius. This world is mostly covered in thick jungles with a very humid climate; there are a good number of deserts, rivers and lakes, even with the heat. Despite this harsh climate, most of the habitants of these lands have gotten used to it and have adapted there life to it. In Arcosius reside great predators like dinosaurs and mythical beasts as well as more humanoid races. The Predators and animals live where they please when they please, but the humanoids have established a different way of thinking in order to be able to defend themselves against these beasts. The big cities are established in the Jungle. These cities are trees connected to each other with complex platform, every tree being a structure of some sort. There are 4 of these: Volasaia, Terrandya, Sibuarias and Ceynelon and then there is the capital of this world, Salanthias, mostly used for meetings between the 4 clans. This City is placed atop a huge mountain which is in the middle of the Jungle where the 4 others reside (they surround the mountain). Not all humanoids live these cities, there are some nomads that take risks and travel around the dangerous world of Arcosius. In the deserts there are ancient Pyramids which are used as cities for the old forsaken civilization. According to the legends, they are not human… they are monsters. Every brave soul to have attempted getting information about those forsaken never came back. Each city has their specialties and trades their goods with each other but it can happen that they battle between themselves but it’s very rare…. Members of every clan are normally aloud to visit every other clan.

Volasaia (Volas Clan): This is the hunting city, they focus on hunting beasts to get their meat and skins.

Sibuarias (Sibar Clan): This is the fishing and port city, they supply food and boats.

Terrandya (Terra Clan): This city is known for its wears and armor

Ceynelon (Ceyn Clan): Their weaponry is quite amazing, and they supply any type of materials needed for construction.

These four cities trade with one another to fill in the needs of every one. The clans of each city are its sworn protectors, they are each a group of individuals that protect their city from the predators and beast lurking in the jungle. The clan members are trained well enough to push the creatures away from attacking the city. There are 3 different specs available for these people to train: Morph Mage, Weapons master (any weapon is aloud but keep in mind, this is prehistoric, so metal is not usable) and beast tamers. People practicing any of these usually master one but some cases try learning two (if you are a beast tamer and something else, you will not be able to have an as big or powerful pet as a full fledged beast tamer but you will have diversity) They learn the ways of their choice by either following a mentors training or by themselves.
There is a way to travel faster between every city, Some tamers have tamed Pterodactyls so people could ride them between the 5 cities.





Races:

Humans: A very balanced race that excel in diplomacy live approximately 90 years. These aren’t the average humans you see in everyday life though. They have somewhat of a rocky skin, a lot more resistant than normal skin but it is not as resistant as an actual rock. They developed this special skin over the centuries to resist the harsh climate of Arcosius. Humans, due to their versatility, tend to chose multiple classes.

Dryads/ Daedrei: This race lives in symbiosis with the nature, they are born from trees that were originally Dryads or Daedreis themselves, this species becomes a tree when it dies and creates 1 or 2 Dryads or Daedreis before withering away. They are the same size as humans, but they are a plant-like species, leaves for hair, flowers growing on their bodies their skin color is any color a flower can be… They are known to be any of the three classes, none being rarer than the other, but they mostly master one and don’t try to learn another. They can live up to 500 years, the species itself is very rare and they only reproduce when one dies, so it is a very slow process. The knowledge of the dead Dryad is transferred to her seedlings when they are born.

Yuan-Ti: The Yuan-Ti are a tall reptilian species, descending from the great Serpent god Liveresc. They have the same form as a human but a lot taller and with scales and snake-like faces, they are usually seen in the color of black, Red or green, but there are some who are more unique. Their lifespan can go up to 300 years. If ever a Yuan-Ti is a Morph animal, the animal does not have to be a reptile, although when morphing into another animal, it will keep reptilian features. Their physical state, being great, allows them to be great fighters some more uncommon prefer morph or taming. They are born from eggs.

Goblins: Small and green skinned humanoid species. They have long ears and barely get to the human`s waist in height. They have small arms and legs but their face is kind of different than the humans face. Their life span is 120-130 years. These little green skins prefer taming beasts due to their small size not helping them in close combat, and they have an affinity with animals, but some do not care about their size and rather prove that they can be good warriors as well.

Half-Beast/Half-dinosaur: Half-humans/half beast (this includes half dinosaurs) are a species looking a lot like humans but they have feral features. Their life span is normally the same as a human but it really depends which animal species he has within. This species often like to master the morph magic talents and most of the time the morph being of animal type but like the other races there are exceptions.


Classes:

Morph Mage: A morph mage is capable of morphing his body or objects he touches into the thing of his element (object to do apply when you are an animal morph). Morphing your full body, being very powerful, is hard to sustain for a long time due to the requirements in energy. Example of a morph mage: Morph Fire, he can morph his body into flames and he can change objects like a rock into a fire ball.

Weapons master: Weapon masters learn how to master one or two weapons with great skill. Be it either a ranged or melee weapon, common like a sword or more uncommon like chakrams (as said before the weapons will not be made out of metal, think bones or stone) Weapons are often made by Morph’s of the type for it to be near perfection.

Tamer: This class tames their very own beast and commands it. The tamer can ride the beast (considering what beast is tamed) he gets the beast to fight for him. Good Tamers can tame a dinosaur and excellent ones even tame the least dangerous mythical beasts (humanoids of any type cannot be tamed) They usually equip their animal with armor since they are the ones doing the fighting.

Mastery Level: There is a mastery level for each class. From ML 1 (being the strongest) to ML 5 (being the weakest) (note: if you are more than one class you will have a mastery level for each, not one mastery level for both)


Plot:

Attacks from what seem to be the forsaken have been starting for the last year, but no matter how many times the clans fight them off, the forsaken keep on coming with as much, if not more numbers every time. There has been a meeting of the leaders of each city to determine a plan of action. They have decided to reunite members of each clan and send them off to the habitat of the forsaken to destroy them from the inside, if possible. Since they did not have any other information on the forsaken then their hideous appearance and their way of fighting, it will be a hard mission to accomplish.

Name: Gilgamesh Kilik-Das

Age: 144 Years

Height: 7.2 Feet

Physique: Tall – One eye is blue; the other is green – Muscular – Covered in scars

Class: Weapon Master (Martial Arts - Master of the Bujinkan Taijutsu Style)

Mastery Level: Class 1

Traits: Excessively rude - Good sense of humour - Strong Willed - Loves Beer - Ruthless

Background: Ex-Monk Assassin of the Dark Fang Monastery - Elite Mercenary

Starting City: Ceynelon

Back-story:

Gilgamesh never really had a childhood.

At age 5, his parents, who had been living in excessive poverty since before his birth, were forced to sell their son into slavery. Though this may seem inhuman from the standards of other civilized species, it is actually a commonplace practice in Yuan-Ti society. Children are often used as a currency when money isn’t available.

Thus began Gilgamesh’s harsh life into an unfair world. His owner, a fair yet short-tempered man, saw in him a fierce and vicious warrior, and he therefore integrated Gilgamesh into a famous slave fighter’s guild, known only as the Amphitheatre of Blood. For many years, he trained and trained and consequently tempered his body to be harder than stone, his fists stronger than earthquakes and his feet faster than lightning. Time passed, and finally the moment came, when he was about 25 years old, when he would be allowed to fight and kill in the Amphitheatre.

And fight he did.

Immediately, in the first few fights that Gilgamesh ultimately won, everyone could see that he was an uncommon fighter. There was something about his calm bloodlust, his unwavering fury and his tranquil method of dismemberment that said something. Indeed, for the many years that passed and the thousands of gladiatorial battles that Gilgamesh fought in, he developed a fearsome reputation and a particular nickname: The Smiling Destroyer. Yes, in every skirmish that he fought, he would always be -the last one standing, with an enormous grin plastered on his blood-soaked face.

Then, one day, at Gilgamesh’s 56th birthday, he was approached by four shadowy Yuan-Ti. They told him who they were: they belonged to the powerful association of assassins known as the Dark Fangs. For years they had observed his progress as a warrior, and they had been frankly impressed. They desired to count Gilgamesh within their ranks. They were formally offering a request that logically could not be refused. With a smile on his face, he accepted.

For several long centuries (He was a Yuan-Ti, so his life span was very long) he trained extensively, and essentially mastered the deadly martial art known as Bujinkan Taijutsu. For years, he was feared as the greatest assassin in the Dark Fang Monastery, yet his power never ceased to augment. He still bore the nickname Smiling Destroyer, although none of his comrades dared to say it to his face, for fear of being violently eliminated.

The years passed, and Gilgamesh accomplished mission after mission. Be it the assassination of a king, or the elimination of a small renegade group of soldiers, he accepted each mission with relish and he always returned successful, covered in the blood of his enemies, with a smile on his face. Stories and rumors of his immense power and terrible ruthlessness came upon the ears of the leaders of the Dark Fangs. In haste, they gathered an assembly of every elder of the monastery, and discussed the situation of Gilgamesh’s unstoppable power. Few words were said. The majority of the leaders agreed that Gilgamesh had become a threat and the only way to ensure balance within their association would be to silence him. Those who weren’t of the same opinion remained quiet and refused to make their outlook known to the other members of the assembly. They knew better than to anger the strongest member of the Dark Fang society.

The others, unfortunately, did not.

Organizing their greatest warriors, they located and encircled Gilgamesh’s house in a matter of hours after the assembly. Hundred of Dark Fang elite were present in the vast army that had been sent to eliminate him, and they all exuded an aura of utmost confidence, arrogance and superiority. In their overwhelming numbers, every one of them believed that they would easily be able to crush Gilgamesh, despite his incredible power.

How wrong they were. Gilgamesh, smiling as always, had known that events would eventually lead his superiors down this road. He did not hate them for it. In fact, he respected their decision, in a slightly condescending manner. Sensing the presence of hundreds of bloodthirsty warriors around his humble abode, he steeled his mind for the upcoming bloodbath, and, knocking the doors of his dwelling aside, strode outside, laughing like a madman.

What happened next was but a blur to Gilgamesh. All he knew is that for several long, interminable hours, he fought and fought until he could no longer fight, but, even then he still continued fighting, draining his vast reserves of unimaginable strength. With each strike of his fist, numerous bodies went flying against the walls of the sanctuary. With each swipe of his foot, dozens of bones were shattered. Then came the moment when Gilgamesh knew he could no longer fight. His body was as heavy as lead, and blood covered his entire body. He could no longer even smile. And still the enemies came charging towards him, manifesting an unnatural, misguided killing intent.

Gilgamesh knew that he had no choice. He would have to accept the cowards defeat. He would have to run.

And run he did. Leaving behind the gore soaked courtyard of the monastery, he swore revenge upon his old masters, and he left, bounding away from the cursed area and its Dark Fang assassins. Calling upon reserves of energy he didn’t know he even had, Gilgamesh ran, ran and ran. He ran for miles, until he was sure that his pursuers had given up on him. The, with a small grin on his face, covered in blood and gore, he collapsed in the middle of nowhere.

----

Years passed. Gilgamesh still trained ferociously for the day of reckoning. He was still pursued by countless assassins from time to time, but he always dispatched them without expending a modicum of his power. Depressingly, he realized, his position had changed from the hunter, to the hunted. And he couldn’t do anything about it except smile bitterly.

He still hated his nickname. Smiling Destroyer? Seriously?

Name: Thonendra Tellbot

Age: 22

Appearance: Black hair, dark brown eyes, 5'7 tall, with a thin, lean build.

Class: Morph Mage (Ice Morph), ML2

BackStory/Personality: Thonendra only has a memory of four days her life--because four days ago, something happened to her to cause her to lose her memory. She doesn't remember who she was or what she did, nor is she aware of her history.

For the past four days, she has searched endlessly to discover something of herself, finding nothing. The man that found her, Arcian, has been so kind as to shelter her, feed her, help her with her search, and has also titled her Thonendra Tellbot, after his long, lost daughter.

Thonendra doesn't yet know what her personality is, nor does she know quite what she wants or have any goals. She is currently just lost and confused, and has not explored what she "likes" about anyone or anything, other than Arcian, whom she is quite fond of.

A raptor had given up on the caravan and was approaching Amy menacingly when oddly enough, a T-Rex (lazy mode) came to save the poor child, with her little Baby dino by her side. The mother T-Rex decided to raise the child the best way she could, so Amy and the Baby Dino became very close and Amy would always ride on him. But at the age of 6 (she hadn't learned how to talk due to being raised by Dino's) Hunters crossed their way and saw Amy with the dino's, naturally they thought the child was in danger so they killed the mother and were going to do the same with the child dino but Amy put herself in their way, crying her eyes out. One of the hunters, Ryan, decided to bring the two inseparables back with him and taught Amy the ways of humans while taking care of Denver (Amy had named her dinosaur) at the same time. Amy is now 18 and she still lives with Ryan although she's always out in the wild with her, now huge friend Denver.

Other info: Amy gained a lot of knowledge on plants Of any sort in the wilderness due to her 4 years living there and she continued learning on her own as she grew.

Arcosius
Race: Dryad
Name: Damia
Female
Morph Mage: parasitic morph ML 3--greenish glow covers body, can drain energy from an enemy to a point that he is a bit dizzy and his balance is a bit off, also can take energy from surrounding plants and animals all though when doing so small plants and insects around me will die, can take energy to weaken foes and prolong my morph as well as to heal myself and allies.
Age-150 years old
Born in the forest surrounding Volasaia Damia spent the first 125 years of her life alone in the forest surviving by taking what little nutrients she needed for from the living things around her. While she can’t claim to have never killed smaller beings by taking all there energy she can say she only does so in dire need and prefers to get it from the bigger and older trees as well as from freshly dead or killed animals and plants. This is because while she is a parasite she still feels remorse and guilt in killing anything and prefers coexisting with those she drains energy and nutrients from. After living alone in the forest she stumbled upon the city of Volasaia and became fascinated by the lives of those living there and so decided to live amongst them. She first spoke and and ate there while having the knowledge of eating and speaking she had never used it. Which meant there was an adjustment period where her body had to accustomed it self to the new habits. This leading to a few interesting moments to say the least and she never got used/liked eating meat and so became a vegetarian. She also studied plant life and can identify herbs, shrubs, and trees. She also learned to make poisons and healing balms as well as that she could give others the energy she took in through her powers.
Starting city Volasaia
Appearance-5’’7

Name: Erato

Gender: female

Age: 300 years

Appearence:

Race: Dryad

Class: Weapon master

Mastery Level: ML 1 in weapon master and ML 3 in light morph magic

Starting City: Terrandya

BackStory: Erato is many generations of cumulated memories and experiences in combat. All her ancestors were more than accomplished warriors. Before, his family was one of the most important in the dryad race. Time has passed and she is now the only one left in this great family that could’ve been the kings and queens of the dryad. Erato joined the Terra clan about 100 years ago and proved herself as a genius tactician. She had a lot of leadership with soldiers and was merciless with her enemy. With those qualities, she quickly became the first commandant of Terrandya’s army. With the forsaken attack being more and more aggressive, the army is required a lot more than before.

Other info: Erato uses a spear when fighting. When shes deeply wounded, Erato also learned to be able to change herself into pure light to renegerate, this process take a lot of time and leaves her very vulnerable for some time after
