It was both sudden and swift. A plague swept threw the northern region of the continent, Baulder, which start as a horrible disease forming large puss filled boils from the sweat glands that burned when touched yet surprisingly didn't kill. The disease was believed to be divine punishment by khine, god of mercy and father of a patriarchy of gods known as the 5 fingers of Khine. The disease started in Del Mondum(meaning new kingdom) and it's people blamed the church saying they did not worship Khine in a way that was pleasing to him. However dispanding the church did not get rid of the plague and it wasn't long after the dispanding of the church that these boils began to burst giving way to branches and roots that sprouted from their bodies. The diseased began to go insane and attack people using their spider like branches which continued to wrap around their bodies turning them into tree people with multiple moving branches that function as arms and human legs that clumsily carried their new wooden bodies. Very few people escaped Del Mondum alive and even fewer were allowed into new towns out of fear of spreading the plague and the Kingdom of Del Mondum was taken by nature. 2 weeks have passed since this event and some tree people have grown even larger and slower while others have remained small enough to run and they have begun to leave the ruined Kingdom they began in, spreading across Baulder. While many Kings have closed off their gates and only plan on hiding a certain king known as the Ivory King even higher to the north has decided to fight these crutures and has sent fliers to any kingdom and village who would take them for help in finding the cause of this plague with a high reward of 10,000 gold and your own plot of land surrounded by farm land and peasents to serve you to whoever finds the source first and is able to provide proof. While a handful may be persuing this reward you specifically have found a clue via divine messager. An angel or god you are unfamiliar with has contacted you/all of you in your dreams telling you to infiltrate Del Mondum and make your way to the center of the city and you will find your answer and that you will not be the only one searching for these answers. The spirit urges you to wait for reinforcement in a small village calling Baulshor(boulder-shore). You will be starting this role-play in the small mining village of Baulshor a day's walk from Del Mondum where everyone has evacuated except for a handful of gaurds, women and children and you can decide whether to evacuate them first or just continue on your journey.
About the role-play:
So this role-play will take place in the same world as my other rp idea, Collosal lost in the mist, and is really my attempt at more world building. I want to attempt to have you assume there are many different languages in this world as well by creating different city, location and ocean name in a different language then explain to you what these words mean to make you feel more immersed in the story but we'll be roleplaying in English so don't worry about having to translate, I'll be doing that part. Also like in Collosal lost in the mist I'd like everyone to make up their own cultures and origins as well as anything else you'd like to add since the lore of this world isn't concrete yet with the exception of the magic system. Also I'd like any God's you create to be "small gods" meaning they aren't as powerful as people think. In a world where their are "small gods" the gods use manipulation and deception to trick the people into worshipping them and often go to war with other gods who either don't agree with them or aren't on their on their side. For example I plan on making Khine the god of mercy a very wrathful god who on gives mercy to those who worship him but encourages going to war with anyone who doesn't and so his influence has spread far throughoutthe continent of Baulder and those who worship Khine are conquerors similar to the Romans who give mercy as long as you worship their gods. Also if only 1 person is interested this could become a onexone, I'd have no problem with that.
In this world there are 3 natural energies and 1 unnatural. The 3 natural energies are mental energy, body energy and nature energy, with the one unnatural energy being called Ouni.
Mental energy is energy produced by and stored within the minds of all living things, however not all living things contain the same amount neither can everyone use it in the same ways. People/creatures with large amounts of mental energy think alot and show signs of having a higher level of intelligence, however too much mental energy can also cause depression and a lack of motivation as they see the faults in any action. Those who learn to control their mental energy are able to master psychic abilities such as telekinesis, mind reading and telepathy which individual should take years to master though there are people who are born with these abilities, though they are rare. Mastering mental energy also allows a person to better balance there mental energy and reach what some call enlightenment or steadiness of the mind.
Body energy is energy produced by and stored within the body and allows a person to grant themselves super human strength, speed and reflexes, as well as being an important part of staying healthy. People with large amounts of body energy tend to be either naturally athletic, really tall or stunningly beautiful. Like mental energy body energy can take years to master but it can also activate itself during times of great stress or when a person is pushed passed their limits. Advanced forms of body energy control can allow a person to make doubles of themselves, stretch their arms and legs and even cause their whole body to double in size, but these are feats Masters of body energy spend a life time mastering by pushing their limits and putting their lives on the line along with constant training.
Nature energy is the energy found within the 6 elements, fire, water, wind, lightning, earth and wood. Unlike mental and body energy nature energy resides outside of the body and must be collected in order to be used by opening ones pores. Nature energy is chaotic and hard to keep contained for long without transforming into a rampaging monster made of nature energy. When a person transforms due to nature energy they are technically still in control of their actions but their minds become chaotic and they act purely on their desires. While people don't contain nature energy in them naturally they do have an easier time collecting nature energy they have an affinity for. Everyone is born with an affinity for at least 1 or at the most 3 elements and having an affinity for an element basically means you can collect the nature energy of that element extremely fast or at least faster then you can from any of the other elements. Learning to control nature energy grants a person control of the 6 elements though most people prefer to master the elements they have an affinity for since like body and mental energy mastering any kind of ability takes years of hard practice. In some cultures the elements of earth, lightning and wind are considered the elements of heaven while water, fire and wood are considered the elements of man and depending on which elements you have an affinity for people will assume things about your personality, future and destiny, though there is no evidence to back this up. A person with all 3 heavenly elements are thought of to be sent by the Gods and to have a great destiny while people with all three elements of man are considered to be great leaders and protecters, though in some places having all three elements of man also means you are greedy and not to be trusted. The element of wood is said to be the element of greed and exploration, the element of fire is said to be the element of gluttony and ambition, water is sloth and tranquility, wind is passive and wise, lightning is judgement and hot temperedness and earth is stability and stubbornness.
Ouni is a form of energy similar to body, mental and nature energy except it comes from another world and proves that there are other dimensions though no one has any idea how to get there or what is on the other side other then Ouni, though some believe it is hell. Ouni are living energy that cannot be collected or controlled, however they can be tamed. When Ouni come into this world they are usually no larger then an eye ball and feed off of nature energy by causing fires then later consuming them, arriving where tsunami's crash and basically arriving where ever natural disasters arrive giving them a bad stigma, but to make things worse when Ouni become large enough(around human size) they gain the ability to eat both body and mental energy by eating people and other living creatures. Despite turning into man eaters once they get big some people have taken to taming Ouni and even willingly feed them mental and body energy by laying their hands on the Ouni and allowing energy to flow freely from the pores in their hands. When Ouni first arrive in this world and are the size of eye balls they are basically mindless but as they grow bigger so does their intelligence making large Ouni extremely dangerous.
With a suggested standard of two paragraphs or more and dedicated lore threads, this is for the more verbose roleplayer. (10+ sentences per post, on average.)
