See bottom of post for In Character Link.
A egg lays upon a set of steps leading up to a cathedral. The sun slowly comes out, its the first shine of the day. The egg slowly becomes more visible. Although this is no ordinary egg! This is a Dragon Egg. The black and blue splotches and shear size of the egg give it away. There is a letter next to the egg...
"Dear King Elsyre, I know this is quite fumbling why you have recieved something like this at your door steps. Do hear me out good king. I cannot reveal who I am...Although I can reveal why it is that I am doing this. You see, your brother Ulysee always sat on his throne killing the others with the help of the great dragon Shambala. The great dragon has died. Last night, I happened upon her lifeless body in the stall the king had made for her. Her last offspring is what you see before your eyes. The last dragon has died... you now have in your possession, the last possible dragon. Ulysee is mad with fury, he has conquered the eight other kingdoms to get to yours. After he learned of the dragon dying, he retreated with his soldiers back to his Kingdom.
I was able to slip by his guards, men and forces to deliver the egg directly to you. The King is horrible in all aspects. He had no honor, when he see's something he has it. My wife...daughter included. After I had learned that he had raped the two things I believe were safe from him... I had to take a stand. Now I give this mission to you... you are the only one who has a chance to end this nightmare... you must kill your brother before he regains his strength...I only hope There is enough time to prevent his doings. "
The letter ends with a signature on the bottom that is unreadable.
Continent of Arcadia
The continent of Arcadia is vast with expanse. To the north you have the Kingdoms of the Brothers. To the south you have to Kingdoms of the Sisters. To the East you have the icy winds of the endless range of mountains. To the west is the Humble river that leads to the new world.
Originally there was ten kingdoms. Now all left are the two brothers, Ulysee and Elsyre. The ten kingdoms had A treaty together preventing the conquering of other kingdoms. It took over two hundred years to form this allaince between the Dragon's of the kingdoms. Two kingdoms are left after Ulysee's madness spread across the land. Ulysee sluaghtered thousands, destroying nature, the world they walk upon. It used to be that each kingdom had a dragon guarding it, keeping the all the kingdoms in line. The last dragon Shambala was not like the others though. It craved death and destruction from its leader... And the leader listened. So Ulysee became a puppet of destruction as the dragon wreaked its havoc upon the kingdoms. The dragon egg is the only remnant left of the dragons.
Now that the other kingdoms have been conquered, they all serve the Great Ulysee. It took Ulysee five seasons to conquer the other kingdoms. So it shall Take ten more seasons until Final battle arrives... Dragons grow quickly, so it shall take eight seasons for the baby dragon to fully mature.
King Elsyre soon after receiving the egg called a meeting of their council, of the country of Elsyre. The meeting took over half a day to adjourn. The King is getting ready to play the drums of war. The dragon must be raised, and not killed by Ulysee. Soon after Ulysee retreated back across the country to return to his keep.
The continent of Arcadia is ruled by the land as well as the air. Drakes rule the sky now since the dragons have all died out. Shambala killed the others, one after another. Drakes are the dragons last cousin. They are also the preferred choice of companions to Knights of the kingdoms. Each Knight receives a War Drake when he decides to represent his land.
Drakes in comparison look like dragons, but are very much smaller than any dragon. They are about the size of horses, just with wings. Their tales usually have spikes and breathe their heritage element, which their are a total of four Heritage Elements... Fire, Ice, lightning and Shadow. Shadow are the rarest and breathe out poison.
Drake eggs differ in sex. A male egg is as big as a Watermellon, and quite thick and hard. Female eggs tend to be the opposite. They are a bit tinier, and delicately soft. When they hatch they are usually bonded to the one that raises them from the egg for life. They develop a mental connection with their owner, they can feel their pain, thoughts and beliefs.

They enslaved the Aruni's to work for them. The only Aruni's still alive in the north live hidden in the Mountains.

Follow this forums rules.
I have not decided yet to introduce other races along with the humans. If the story progresses far enough, than it shall be considered.
Current story takes place within the North of Arcadia. Try to keep the story there. If you have a character who is from a different part of the world, that's fine. Just start them out in the north.

CalderThePirate's Place Holder
Character Name : Roland
Character Sex : Male
Character Age : 28
Appearance Of Character : stands about 5'8", with slicked back blond hair. He has a build common for knights, built up in other words. His body has a few scars on his right arm. Just slashes from close encounters mostly. A scar is located on his left knee from where he first was Bit by his Drake Galrae, when she was an infant.
His hands are still smoothed, not nearly as battle worn as the older knights kinsmen. He has a smooth face also, shaves regularly.
Urden: A longsword that was forged by his Uncle before the Battle for Capthu had taken place. The longsword is a bright silver that has a weird shimmer effect when it picks up reflections of light. The herbs his uncle soaked the blade in before giving it a finishing touch gave it an Illumination effect. Rolands Uncle was a battle tech. He had served King Elsyre with one job, to find an effective and advantage to fighting in the dark. This was the result of his ten years of research. A herb by product from the use of Flame willow which is only found by lake sides. Flame willow illuminates when light is absorbed into its pores. So the blade was basked in Flame willow well the sword was still soft and warm.
A shield with the letter E engraved red on the front.
Occupation : Elsyre Knight
Kingdom : Elsyre
Bio: Roland had been part of the knights for ten long years. When he was sixteen, he was forced in to the military. His father who had been absent most of his life, decided the best place for an unwanted son was in a place where he could die, and not be remembered afterwards. Roland fought with all authority well he was a trainee. He was written several time for endangerment of the people of Elsyre. It had all been a wasted youth to Roland though.
It took years for Roland to finally wise up, but it still happened regardless of his past performance. He did well academically, scoring top in his classes, and sword fighting was his natural setting. He couldn't help but love the adrenaline.
When Roland turned 22, he received an egg. After six months of incubation, the egg hatched. Thus Galrae was born. He was often made fun of in Drake training, seeing how his drake was a female. It was very uncommon for a Male knight to have a Female drake. The academy hand selects the eggs to determine their sex. Female eggs tend to be smaller, more delicate than a males. Galrae's was tough as a nail, as big as a watermelon.
The years passed. Roland showed all that doubted him, that he was capable and reliable. Two years ago the kingdom had a inner civil war. Unhappy citizens blamed the drought of the past five months on the kings unbelieving manners to the kings of the heavens, Jackra, Safta, Ion, and Ios. Roland was assigned to protect the castle. An assassin from the Ulysee kingdom infiltrated the castle. Roland had caught sight of him last second. The assassin almost struck the kings heart if it wasn't for Rolands bravery. Quickly he slid all the way to the assassin, with his bodies momentum swinging upward with a force uncomprehending. The Assassins tools, his hand, were chopped off like wood from dead fall. The assassin jumped out a window, getting away...but with wounds like that, you couldn't get very far.
Now Roland is on his first real assignment from the king. Fort Capthu was famous for a battle that had gone down over more than a century ago.
Character Name : Corva Tronto
Character Sex : Male
Character Age : 31
Appearance Of Character : Light, agile and tiny. Corva stands about 5'3", he is short for a male but his profession fills the height stature. He is built regularly. He isn't to muscly, but enough to do what he has to for his career. His hands are mechanically crafted. They were created by a Ulysee inventor who had been working on some synthetic limb replacements. The hands are filled with mechanical gears that are tinier, more complex than any machine at the time. They are connected to what is left of his hands. His face is shrouded, no one has ever seen what he looks like under his veil.
Trappar, and Zappar : A set of twin daggers. Both daggers are forged by steel, mixed with diamond dust.
Occupation : Assassin
Kingdom : Ulysee
Corva was enlisted into Ulysee's special ops four years ago. He was a talented and stealthy fighter. He used all to his advantage to get the upper hand, when he had hands. About two years ago Corva was an important Hit. He was supposed to assassinate King Elsyre while the kingdom was rioting, which was actually caused by Corva himself, disguised as a simple peasant.
Corva went in for the kill trying his best to take out the target. After all, King Ulysee would probably kill him if he failed. The king wouldn't want any rumors going out about his crime's. The target was in sight, he failed to keep his eyes open for a blind spot though. At the moment that Corva went for the strike. A long blade with a shimmer unseen by his eyes struck him blind. He could feel the cold metal slicing through his hands as the phantom hand feeling kicked in. When he finally opened his eyes, he was jumping through a window out into the court yard. Corva kept telling himself not to look down. So for three hours he didn't. He knew he had to do something from keeping himself from bleeding to death though. As he was running through the villa hand less , he happened upon a blacksmiths tent, the rock bed was full of hot coals. He thought fast, he stuck his 'used to be' hand into the hot bed. He could smell flesh singeing. He blocked the pain out completely, being trained to do so. He then kept moving. For three more hours he traveled the country side until he arrived at his original end point. Ulysee had sent an inventor with him for any equipment that Corva may have needed. Corva went straight up to the Inventor passing out in front of him. The inventor soon after went to work on his hands.
When Corva awoke, he was sitting in a chair that was stiff and hard. He looked at his hands and had a look of amazement. The Inventor had created artificial hands, from using clock gears and pieces. They were a metal tinge. They looked oddly natural, but still looked like metal hands on his body. He never returned to Ulysee... He had instead sworn revenge on the knight who stole the tools he so much needed.
Character Name : Yacc Dallas
Character Sex : Male
Character Age : 32
Appearance Of Character : Yacc stands 4'9". He has a fat pot belly with short brown hair. His eyes are full of greed well his body figure is that of a small over weight child. His maturity shows through his beard which is very nicely shaped, and full grown. He wears a purple vest with a magenta shaded shirt underneath. His pants are tan in shade, and baggy. He wears sandles on his feet.
Weapons : A small little cane he keeps by his side.
Occupation : Merchant
Kingdom : Elysre
Yacc stood watching the rush of buyers and sellers. He stood quite confident amongst the rest of the scum that sell items they procure in many, and unstated ways. Yacc was better than the rest of the scum though. He was a proprietor. He could sell you something before you were aware you bought it. He was an expert con artist, and a damn good merchant.
He stood brushing his hair winking at the passing ladies that were taller than him. He always had a short stature through out his whole life. Everyone in his family line had a height deficiency. It was quite common for Merchants though, a stereotype if you will. Yacc did not let this take his customers away though. He looked down at his sell table. They were full of little odds and ends. A few clock pieces and what not.
He didn't enjoy the idea of other merchants steeling his business so he started yelling insults across the market. "Don't buy from Marco!, He's a full on rapist!" He yelled across the market, with a slight laugh in his voice. Marco looked at Yacc with a horrified look on his face.
"Philanthropist! Phil-anthro-pist!, Not full on rapist you hum-squat!" Marco yelled with tears in his eyes as shoppers left his corner of the market. Yacc raised an eyebrow. "Now he's A Pist Full on rapist! Get off my market corner! You are not welcome!" Yacc yelled shaking his cane at the merchant across the street.
"Hey Polo! Stop seducing those young women into your deals! Ion shall not approve of your devious intents!" Yacc yelled at the other merchant on the other side of the street. Polo looked around frantically. There was quite a large number of young women looking at his apparels...now there wasn't .
Yacc has always been this way, trying his best to get the head on other sellers, but soon his journey may get a little more complicated.
Dirzrahel's Place Holder
Character Name : Kerrain Guil'tee
Character Sex : Male
Character Age : 43
Appearance Of Character :
To put it simple, Kerrain is a beast of a man. He stands at a sky-reaching height of six feet and four inches; furthermore, his muscular appearance puts most people on edge. Scars riddle his torso from battles fought, and across his left eye he wears a black eye-patch covering an old scar attained from an arrow during war. His hair is a short wave of dark brown leading to a ruggedly shaved dark beard. Since most of his days involve traveling the ice wastes, he usually wears a fur-lined coat made from wolf, and his pants a thick wool. He wears black boots as well, that carry half-way up his shin. On his back is usually a pack holding god know's what, one would think it to be full of survival supplies. At his waist is a leather woven belt, attached an expertly-made katana-like blade that starts out very broad and tapers down to a precise edge. Most people shy away from him because of his rugged exterior, however, he is a very inviting person and loves to socialize when presented with possibility. Since he was originally a very well-known across the kingdoms blacksmith, his language skills are extremely potent. Originally from the southern kingdom, Kerrain moved to the north to not be recognized, among other things. He is currently searching the mountains for a special type of metal.
This is the blade Kerrain carries at his side. He forged the blade mixing his own blood into the metal, making the sword his blood brother. The blade is strong and as hard as a diamond, and bests most blades in combat by mere design. This blacksmith does not draw his weapon anymore; however, he was notorious in battles when Draciel screamed its metal chime into the air.
Occupation : Retired blacksmith, ex-mercenary.
Kingdom : Elsyre, but only because Kerrain loves backing the underdog in most situations.
In the beginning, Kerrain was born into a kingdom that is no more. He was whisked away by strangers to the south, while he watched his own home ravaged in flames and ruin. The dragon, Shambala, had no mercy.
However, times were at peace for the young Kerrain. He was apprenticed by Lloyd Tirindul, a somewhat unknown person but a master at the blacksmithing art. This was the first step in the career of Kerrain, before he earned his last name. At the age of nineteen he was indoctrinated into the illutrious Order of Carta, an organization devoted to the craftsmanship of blacksmiths and the skills of swordsmen. Within the Carta's guild hall Kerrain learned how to wield a sword as well as hone his skills making them. At age twenty-two he created his finest work while he experimented with a metal referred to as 'haclyon'. That was the day 'Draciel' was born into the world, smithed with Kerrain's own blood in the metal.
Five years passed and Kerrain became a mercenary. He both forged weapons for his group and led them into battle, gaining notoriety as a great leader as well as strategist.
Until one mission that led him to retire.
At age thirty, Kerrain was commissioned to raid an enemy camp with his company. They were to attack during the night when they had cover, since intelligence relayed the enemy had many soldiers.
The attack went through, and in front of Kerrain's sword was a young girl no older than eight. The blacksmith turned and pushed his company off the enemy camp, which turned out to be a peaceful village. His company revolted against his leadership and continued attacking the villagers. Kerrain went into a fit of rage, Draciel flashing in the night as he ended every single man of his forty-three body company. That was the night Kerrain refers to as his most terrible memory, and that was the night he chose his last name. Guil'tee.
From then on, Kerrain packed and journeyed north, hiding right under the northern empire's nose as he traversed the mountains to the east. From his old master's words, he recalled a special metal deep within the mountains that would make swords that lived. He'd been traveling to the mountains and coming back to the north for thirteen years.

Tales of Arcadia
The Four Dragons
The Four Dragons
Jackra, Safta, Ion, and Ios were the dragons of the sky. They ruled everything from the ground to the sky. Human's worship these idols for there sacrifice they had made to keep the humans alive. So this is that story, the story of the sacrifice that saved the world of Arcadia from Utter Destruction.
You see a long time ago, the four dragons were once Five. The fifth is very unmentionable. He was known as the black sheep. The dragon who did not belong. Their jobs as dragons was to keep the sky up, and the ground from meeting the sky. They used there powerful wings to stop the earth from moving forward and the sky from falling.
One dragon although did not exactly agree with this idea, nor did he support it. He was not a fan of the other dragon's. So he plotted a devious plan that seemed perfectly innocent to the other dragons at the time. Each dragon was to take a shard of the sky to keep on their back. They were tricked by the trickery of the fifth dragon. They stayed within the sky well the fifth dragon kicked down the pillars that helped the sky hold up. The other dragons had no choice but to save the sky from falling.
Now I guess I should tell you the name of the fifth dragon... Shambala, the great ancestor of the Shambala from our time. So it is written that every so often when the dragons who held up the sky are forgotten...That another Shambala shall come to wreak havoc, and put the sky on others backs.
No one knows if this means that the world shall cease to be, but it is still just a story.
Over two hundred years ago a deal between The sisters and The brothers was stricken to ensure that the wild races in the plains and the new world did not co-exist with theirs. Mostly a fear of integration would lead to higher crime risks, and the such. It was prejudice of both kingdoms but it had to be done at the time.
Forty years passed with no specie invasions on both play fields, but this did not last as long as most wanted it too. The south, or Sisters territory became flooded after a piece of the wall was destroyed by angry immigrants . The kingdom of The Sisters could not afford a war so they let in to the species.
You can imagine over the years their was an increase in crime and your usual problems for accepting new circumstances when something works already. Currently the south is now furious, trying to tear the brothers wall down. It is a wall that spans the whole countries border. It has only a few entrances and each one is guarded heavily by the Order of the Divide. They are a separate group from the kingdoms. The serve only to keep a healthy balance.
