Bear with me, so far this is just an interest check.
However, if and when I have enough interest...
This RP is based off of the world of the Black Jewel series by Anne Bishop (if you don’t know, please please do go and give it a read. You will be pleasantly surprised.) Most of the background information on the world itself is derived from the wikipedia page. I do not think I would have been able to do an explanation justice otherwise.
This game is an Alternate Fantasy that displays the classic genre of Light vs. Dark, but with a twist... Murder, politics, intrigue, and much more awaits with the world of The Black.
The Darkness is not so much as a force but a religion and a way of life The Blood practice throughout the three realms to maintain their world. Despite prominent names like SaDiablo, Daemon, and Lucivar, the use of the Darkness is as a centerpiece for the Blood; not meant to represent evil, sin, or anything negative. Instead it is worship most revered as equally as a scion of Life would be. Though The Blood does acknowledge the Light, they are more prominent in their acknowledgement of The Darkness. It is a common known fact between all of the Blood that everything was born from Darkness shall thus return and fade into it when their time comes.
**THE WITCH STORM/THE PURGE**
500 years ago Queen Janelle Angelline SaDiablo, the strongest Witch in known history, sacrificed most of her power in order to purge the realms of the Taint. The Storm spread throughout the three realms, destroying those Witches whose hearts were not pure. Shortly after the Storm, Janelle passed away, too weak to be able to carry even herself. Her Consort/husband, Daemon SaDiablo, followed almost immediately after, heart broken at the loss of his soulmate.
(Still very WIP)
What is Bliss?
Bliss is no longer what one would think it is, not in these recent times. Bliss was usually associated with anything positive and pleasant in the world. Now? There are those who seek to pervert its meaning. Some of the rich and powerful have two faces. On one they uphold the Blood's ways within Protocol for the general populace, the other are the promoters of these utterly depraved events. Everything is true, everything is permitted at these gatherings, simply for the pleasure of it all.
In these times, these Bliss parties have gained so much influence that the Taint has begun to encroach once more, spreading its tendrils from Terreielle to Kaeleer.
These Bliss parties/events are run by a secret circle of antagonists, who plan and plot to once more take over the realms.
Now that the strongest witch in history no longer exists, almost nothing can stop them from fulfilling their plans.
It’s that almost
that gives something for the people to have hope in...
Blood society is often described as an intricate dance between social class, Jewel strength, and caste.
Although the Blood come from many of the same races as the landen, as the Guardians and Caretakers of the Realms the nature of their power makes it so they are bound by a unique set of rules, outlined by Protocol
. (More on Protocol and Law soon.)
