Stories of Marea
What Destiny Awaits You?
|About:||Long ago, before the rise of Alexander the Great, magical races wandered the world along-side the mundane. Elves shared their wisdom, dwarves their skill, dragons guarded the skies while merfolk tended the seas and fairies made their mischief upon all races. It was the generally held belief of these magical beings that the Great Creator had placed them there to guide humanity, so with the rise of the Greek civilization they felt their purpose had been fulfilled.|
All the magical races gathered on an island called Atlantis, with the merfolk gathered in a large bay, and a spell was cast taking the entire island to a hidden place where these semi-immortal races could live their long lives in peace.
Of course, over the years, due to shipwrecks and other accidents, a few humans slowly made their way to this magical place and so in a modern world there is a place where magic still exists. The ancient isle of Atlantis actually lies off the coast of a small continent, to which are a few portals hidden in the ocean in places such as where Atlantis original existed and the Burmuda Triangle. The continent is called Marea, the Heart of the World.
Create Your Character!
Elves: Artistic, wise, mostly poets, painters, researchers, singers, etc. All have dark hair and eyes. Moderate magical ability.
Dwarves: Intelligent, miners, craftsmen, hairy (both men and women have beards). Mostly red and blond hair with blue or green eyes. Moderate magical ability.
Dragons: Wisest and most ancient of all races. Great magical ability, particulary in the predicting the future and making prophecy categories.
Trolls: Stupid and slow-moving, but very kind. Males have resemble humanoid boulders, females resemble huge trees. Most spend their lives caring for dragons, who have difficulty grooming themselves. No magical ability.
Fairies: Trouble makers - about 2 feet tall with butterfly or dragonfly wings. All skin and hair colors. Great magical ability, which they mostly use to play pranks on each other and anyone else they can find.
Merfolk: Mostly anti-social with land-dwellers, can come in any skin, hair or eye color (and I do mean ANY COLOR) Great magical ability, though they prefer not to use it.
Humans: Any race, any appearance, very little magical ability (if any). Some humans can possess psychic abilities, it seems to happen more often in Marea. Humans can be shipwrecked recently, or descended from ancestors who were shipwrecked. (Plane crashes will also work - Amelia Aerhart has a whole line of descendants living in the southwest.)
-- Please stick to the guidelines when creating your characters - I don't want any oddball blonde-haired elves or green-skinned dwarves or something. If you want a character with crazy colors, have a mermaid or a fairy.
-- I will be happy to create avatars for anyone who requests one. Visit my gallery at quirkyblonde.deviantart.com for a sample of my work.
-- If you wish to join you can e-mail the Mod at email@example.com or try and catch me on AIM, my username is eblackwo.
-- AIM is an integral part of this game, it's not required, but it helps to have it so you can RP in real time and get to know the other players.
-- Gameplay starts soon, so get those backstories going!
okay, so I know it's not the best map, but I'm not so great with the creating maps thing. However, it should give you a basic idea of where your characters should be from. :)
