~Before time itself everything was owned by the shadows, they devoured everything in their paths and grew stronger each day. But one day a group of survivors rebelled against them and fought them off discovering their supernatural abilities. They had driven them underground where these group of rebels kept watch on them for years. Now they say that this land was one of the active spots for the shadows re-invasion… A huge disaster would hit and unleash these shadows from their slumber underground… And they would devour once more these lands. But there is hope in this dire death-driven time, It is Ler, The stones. Fiction you say, Ler is as real as this story itself. Find the stones and Rescue the world from the Appocalypse.~
Everything was well and good in fabre. Life was simple but it was peaceful. Everything seemed perfect. Fabre was a town hidden deep in the Forest of Castel. They were away from a lot of towns and some would even say that they didn’t exist but they did. They improved on their own discovering ways of survival and eventually founding schools and government. Despite all these innovations and discoveries that Fabre had it had a secret, a secret that the human inhabitants thought of as just an old wives tale.
Life went on in Fabre and as time passed their town grew and grew. They expanded their territories. One would say that they were in for a bright future… But, they didn’t expect a massive earthquake to shake their lives. The quakes brought down all their structures, their parks were ruined and their roads were cracked open. Their livelihood gone in a snap and all their hard work, sunk to the ground. The worst part was, not many survived the earthquake. As the earthquake died down, the survivors unearth themselves to see what has become of their precious home. Everything was in ruins. They wept, all of them, wept of their home, their loved ones their town. How were they to start over now? They thought of this as their biggest challenge yet. No one really took into consideration what their famous legend had said about a said event such as this one.
As night covered them the survivors huddled up and kept each other company as they spent the first night after the disaster. They were scared, how were they to rise up from this tragedy, could they really just abandon their home? As thoughts filled their minds and they all drifted to sleep they never expected anything like this. Shadows crept up from the cracks in the ground, swooped down on them abducting them from their slumber. As one of their fellow survivors screamed everyone got up and spread out into the ruins of their town. Everyone was abducted! Most were eaten away… Others saved.
You are one of the survivors who were saved.(you can either be a trainee or already part of the mercenary group) You are saved by a mercenary group of underground humans fighting against the shadows, salvus. Now they “abducted” you so that they would have new recruits to train to combat the shadows. Now the shadows are getting stronger and have divided themselves into several groups occupying the different ruins of the old town. Though their number was few, they were strong. The leader of these shadow creatures was Vexus.
Now it says in the story that the stones of Ler would help stop the apocalypse. Now your quest is exactly that. You need to find these stones and defeat the shadows.
Now if you start off as a trainee we will partner you with a mercenary group member (meaning you can choose to be a member of the mercenary group already or be a trainee).
Trainee: It doesn’t mean you start with nothing. You start with a little knowledge in sword fighting and you train to find your powers. You fight alongside your mentor Taking in what he or she says but it’s up to you if you character will rebel against your mentor or not.
Mentor: doesn’t mean you start off knowing everything about your powers and such but you have already found your main power. You can scold your trainee but you cannot control them to do your bidding. You can tell them what do to and how to do it but that’s it.
Mind you physical abuse is forbidden in the salvus. Anyone caught physically abusing someone else would be automatically kicked out of the mercenary group.
