The World Chalice

Post by ShadFlow » Thu Mar 14, 2019 1:25 am

RESERVED BY INVITATION ONLY!

The World Chalice.

The very device used to seal away the Ifrits of Calamity centuries ago. Beasts, docile by nature but if antagonized could bring about a wrath of natures most prominent forces. Some fool would do so, and the old Elven kingdom sought to prevent it. Creating the Chalice and sealing them within to prevent fools from ever angering an Ifrit. But despite the intention, the Chalice was also the fuel of a mass conquest which eventually led to the fall of the old Elven Kingdom.

The king believed that it was his peoples gods that gave them the knowledge to seal the beasts for his people to lead. And that by principle, the world was therefore property of his kingdom and gods. It became a rallying cry for his forces, and they marched onto other lands. Spreading influence and taking control of weaker nations giving choice: be indoctrinated or be conquered. Those that willingly succumbed, were thrown into the bottom of the societal pyramid. Being laborers and servants and being converted. Those conquered, were enslaved. Stripped of their culture, their histories and integrity under the pretense of "denying-divination". The Elven claw expanded far beyond its own borders growing its Empires strength. Eventually reaching the land that would reverse his conquest. The Orcish Federation.

The Orcs, an honorable people who kept to themselves; but their wrath was something to be feared as history recalls. Despite Elven efforts, Orcish resistance pushed back. Their dominant might and tenacity overpowering what the Elven Kingdom had in numbers--back from their borders. As expected fighting did not cease. Opposing forces continued to attack Orcish borders and were met with difficult resistance. It wasn't until Orcs and Humans forces allied that the Empire received noticeable resistance. The decade long struggle broke; the Alliance pushed the Empire farther and farther. Orc might and Human ingenuity, took them by surprise. Territories under Elven control were losing their grasp as the Alliance continued pressing forward. Although two decades of back and forth conflict, the kingdom fell.

With a rebellion exploding within, the Alliance was able to storm the Elven kingdom. Rampaging the capital city, executing the king and his entire bloodline. Rather than destroying the Chalice, it was used as a symbol. The Alliance took control of the old kingdom and established a confederate. Where the Orcs were the ruling order. Lands were restored under customs of the confederate. The Elves were punished, a civilized society was established which was granted the name of "Hestia". Under Hestia customs politics, education, and philosophy advanced as years passed. And while While there are many other lands and countries that exist, Hestia is the first of its kind. A union of cultures, and races brought together by one unlikely force....almost as if it were the will of destiny.

=====

The Story:
Chapter One-
"The Nexus"


In the mountains of Orthstein, the temple of the Chalice erupted a spire of light piercing the sky. The result, a nexus connecting both this plane of existence and another. Full of creatures of malice and corruption. These creatures we've adopted the name of the "Wicked" and are the knowingly closest relatives to demons. Often summoned by Necromancers bound to their control. But these Wicked are unshackled. And as implied are causing rampant chaos. The nexus grows with each passing day, allowing more dangerous Wicked to cross to this side. Only the World Chalice, the very artifact used to seal away the Ifrits of Calamity centuries ago, has the capability to seal the nexus and banish the Wicked. However with the temple of the Chalice being the very source of this crisis , it is uncertain if it remains intact. If not, then the world is doomed.

Only by entering the Wicked infested mountain passages, and reclaiming the temple will that be known. For those of courage who wish to partake in this expedition know that the journey is perilous. Many have died defending the line preventing as many Wicked as possible from spreading through out the world. The path you take is no different. The days are numbered. And the questions that are being asked cannot be answered. Only by retrieving the Chalice if it remains and sealing the Nexus are important.

Be you soldier, noble or the common farmer. We all are threatened and thus a call-to-arms has been made! Defend your home! Defend your world!

===
The Three Prime Races:
The world is comprised of many races. Some not involved with Hestia in farther undiscovered lands. While Hestia is made up of many diverse races, there are three who have the most representation due to historical relevance. Other races have fair amounts of representation in most social classes and keep the economy and political climate stable.

Orcs: The ruling class ever since the beginning. They are sprinkled about each class, but have the most influence in major politics. A people once split into various tribes, it took the Elven assault to unite them. By tradition they are a people who prize matriarchal societies. While maintaining politics they still hone traditional warrior values and do not believe in a one-ruler based government. A council agrees upon laws and members of the council are decided through certain merits.

Humans: The second most represented and influential class. Being the longest allies of Orcish-kind, humans have much influence in politics as well. More Humans are seen scattered in every social class in just about every occupation.

Elves: No rights. No liberties. That's how it started as their punishment. After being conquered the Elves were stripped of everything. Made into slaves and servants. Elves hold no seat of power or political representation making up the majority of the lowest classes. While in current day they can be seen among the common folk, there are codes and laws restricting how far up the societal ladder they can climb. Unable to own businesses or even leave Hestias main cities unless under approved supervision. Elves are also prohibited from learning magic through the Arcane University.

But, not only can Cosmina fire out bullets from the Magic circles, she can summon a transparent wall to defend either herself or her teammates and use that to fire at enemies.

Name: Rowan D'Amboise
Age:36
Gender: Male
Race: Human
Preset-Relationships:
Magical Prowess: None
Equipment:
-A Broadsword
-A torn flag
-A book of Religious value called The Birth of Pitia
Biography: Rowan was born to the Noble House of D'Amboise. His family was one of military history in where his great-grandfather and grandfather were both great warriors and commanders. His father became a governor of a city-state before he had his son. Rowan grew up with the best education and caretaking. He wanted for nothing, even when his mother passed early in his life. However, he did have problems with his instructor which eventually culminated on a violent outburst from the boy. The instructor was sent away and Rowan has taught himself ever since.

When it became apparent to Rowan's father that he had no interest in a governing position, he pulled strings to get his son into the military to continue their family tradition where he left it. Being a noble, Rowan was never sent anywhere too dangerous and if he was it was after the cannon fodder peasant troops had already bled and died to make the path safe for him and his peers. The young man was quick to pick up on this pattern and wrote a letter of issue to his father about it. His father agreed that this was not the D'Amboise way and in turn wrote a letter to Rowan's commanding officers. Rowan would soon get his wish.

He regretted it. The horrors of war were not at all like the legendary tales he was told of in the safety of his study. The harsh reality of war ingrained itself into the man's psyche and he began to fear the dead. Those he slew, those who were slain beside him, and those whose demise he had no hand in. He began to fear them more than he feared living, breathing foes. When he eventually returned to the D'Amboise homestead, Rowan immediately began researching the afterlife and the occult. His findings only worsened his fears. Knowledge is not always comforting after all.

Magical Prowess:

Equipment:

Shattered-Cry: An elegant Warhammer crafted by Hestian smiths. Made of thick steel alloy and a more design the Shattering-Cry was made with the large woman's measurements in mind. A direct strike from this weapon is a guaranteed swift death in her hands.
Biography:
Agatha was born and raised through the roots of the Orcish race. A woman raised by traditional values in a clan not united with the federation. Living by the land like their ancestors life was simple, but cruel in some instances. Agatha's parents were simple hunters and gatherers; and those skills they've acquired were passed onto her. They weren't renowned, or infamous for anything special...unless her mothers cooking was some to gloat about. In Agatha's preteen-years the clan had been attacked and ransacked by marauders. With better and far more advanced artillery, they were wiped out. Those who fought back were killed and others were captured and brought aboard the ships...Agatha included. Restrained and tossed into a dark cramped space fear was all she could feel.

What was happening? Why was this happening? Who were these people?Where were her parents and where were they taking her? The fear of the unknown....

How many days was it? Weeks? Months? Even years? For an unknown period of time Agatha only knew the dark space along with many others. Finally they were released and greeted by shackles to the neck, wrists and ankles. Pulled into the scorching heat of a blinding sun, surrounded by hundreds, if not thousands of unknown faces; all staring at her anxiously. From there, her and many others(of differing races) were moved through a slave-trade. 'Inspected' and sold to the highest bidder. From there on she was separated by familiarity never seeing her people ever again.

Agatha was taken to a coliseum in a grand city, in a faraway land. For seven years this was all she knew. A place for the entertainment of savages while she battled for her life. This is where the majority of the womans scars come from. From the whippings to quell resistance and the battles(of beast and men) to survive. The city had been invaded by a military force she knew naught of. When the city had been taken over rather than execution the gladiators were faced with a choice.

Fight for them, and earn a free life....or be executed. Unlike some, Agatha took the sword. The worst outcome would be dying on the battlefield. Who would have known however that she would have remained in the military for years? By her own fruition no doubt. Which would take her to a place known as Hestia; a diverse land of 'freedoms' and co-existence.

Eventually earning herself citizenship and becoming a high-ranking officer. Alas she decided to remain in Hestia where there were some things to offer instead of aimless travel...

Name: Veldus Thornvine

Age: 30

Gender: Male

Race: Elf

Preset-Relationships:
Uthgar Dor'zul - Victim
Taenya Thornvine - Wife

Magical Prowess:

Geomancy- While in the pits Veldus learned some Geomancy trickery from a veteran fighter. Nothing too showy to avoid being called out. Just simple raising of the ground here, slick spot there, magically accurate dirt to the eye.

Equipment:
Gladiator Armor, two short swords, and a chain he uses as a whip.

Biography:

The tale of Veldus Thornvine truly begins not with his birth or childhood but with the meeting of his wife Taenya. Taenya brought happiness to a life of hardship and hatred, and he loved her deeply for that. Together they forged a decent life, but it was not to last. Taenya worked in the household of a rich and powerful orcish lord, Uthgar Dor'zul, and over time began coming back later and later at night with bruises and scars. Veldus grew sick of seeing his wife suffer, and one night his anger took over. For his crime he was sentenced to death in the arena, and there he remained for years.

Out of sheer will and the kindness of his fellow prisoners Veldus became a champion, but only wanted to be with his wife once more. So when news came of a suicide mission, he knew what he had to do. To survive was to have happiness again, to fail was to end the torment, but freedom either way.

Name
Caius Servilius Regillus

Age
28

Gender
Male

Race
Human

Preset-relationships
No ones brave enough to handle all the love he’s packing.

Magical Prowess
Overflowing Love- Caius has the natural ability to direct his over abundance of mana into people he feels positive feelings towards. The more intense his feelings, the more mana that flows into them. With the supporting benefits that come with this ability, comes a harmful drawback. Caius’ helmet keeps a lock on his emotions, prohibiting him from feeling intense love when the time is not right. If Caius were to develop loving emotions towards someone who is not equipped to properly handle his power, it could result in their demise, killing them in a literal explosion of mana.

Mana Bombs- Caius utilizes his explosive mana, pouring it into an item he can make contact with, turning it into a time bomb. Strength of the explosions are dependent on both the size of the object he touches, and how much mana he pumps into it.

Equipment
Reliable armor
Trusty Gladius
Pen and paper… to write love letters
