Hello fellow roleplayers! This is an interest check on a roleplay concept i've had lurking in ym head for quite a while now , it is slightly influenced by a gamecube game i've loved, named Baiten Katos , apart from the slight similarities , which are listed as so: (the lanscape (the land is only floating continents and islands ) and humans have wings ) the roleplay itself won't be totally based on the game itself, as i'd find it slightly redundant and it would also, more then likely, narrow the amount of players who would join such a roleplay as not many people have played this game ,i think. Anyways! Onwards to the story:
Around 3000 years ago , the world of Aius was created by ,now the cursed god , Faluin . The remnants of the story that could be slavaged in the ruins of the old world didn't gave much information as to why nor how Faluin turned twisted , althought a name , Malefius, has been appearing often in the ancient texts, stating of the existence of other entities that would be equals to the cursed god , much have been forgotten apart from the mighty war that stormed when Faluin decided to undo his creations , which lead him to his downfall and imprisonment in a secluded place, legends says that his very soul now resided in an ancient stone tablet, waiting for a being as twisted as him to awaken his spirit, and free his body. The day Faluin appeared to erase his creations, all of Aius's mightiest mages gathered to weaken and seal him , the war that rage scarred the whole planet forever . To protect life, the mages gathered the last remnants of their energy to make whole continents and island soar up to the sky .
Your story starts here , around 3500 years after those events . Time spent in this new world changed the whole human race , creating either some slight variations to the original specie , or creating an entirely new race on some other continents. The continent names are as follows: Meun , Jair and Kail . i'll list each country's backstory down below.
Meun is a continent filled with lush green forests and vibrant-coloured wildlife , mostly seen as a country of dangers , most of the natives of the other capitals label the natives of this place as ''savages'' , while there is some racial mix in those lands , it is mostly populated with half beast-looking humanoids named '' WarBeasts'' due to their infamous ability to go berserk . Those lands are rich in spices and other plant-provided delicacies, leading to alot of other countries seeking to gain control of those lands to increase their monetary power. The Warbeasts are mostly pack-driven , they'll elect a leader purely based on strenght and cunning , rather then for it's talents with politics . Their society mostly praises the warriors and hunters above the rest , making the warbeast's army something to be feared of.
Jair is a country composed of a vast desert , mostly covered with lands having scarce amounts of plant life , however this country's land is rich in minerals, and led the native race , the '' Jaikrites'' to mostly rely on a mix of technology and magic to survive and thrive in those lands. it's capitol is named Taiur and is mostly composed of large metallic foundries and forges aswell as flying metallic zepelin-ships which lead to it's nickname '' The city of a thousand fireflies''. Jair's politics are mostly wealth-driven as Jaikrite's definitions of politics is mostly '' every hits are permitted, apart from murder'' blackmailing and foregeries are often used during politics, which lead it to just being a normal thing in the society in general.
Kail is a country with mixed woods , having both constant hivernal weather in it's northern extremity and desertic wether in it's southern extremity , it's forests are mostly composed of pines, maple trees, oaks and birchs , the land is also dotted with multiple lakes which often leads to rivers that roll down the country's edges , leading to a beautiful show of rainbows around the country's borders. This is the native country of the human race , aswell as the ancients , staying fairly neutral over the years , it's capital, Hailu , is the main embassy of the other races as the country itself lies in the middle of the other three. The social and military power is mostly politic-driven , meaning that the humans elect a leader every 5 years to represent them , but most of the big decisions like war, are left to a council.
Will add on the races shortly , still working on them as we speak. i'm open to suggestions also!
