Heroes of the Ruins [Anime Focused Freeform]
« on: January 07, 2017, 04:08:04 PM »
The Day of Sorrow
They did everything they could,
But it wasn't enough,
Now we all sit upon the brink of extinction,
Everything we are,
erased,
as if we never existed.

Our world was always populated with 'heroes'. People born with extraordinary powers, they were rare. one in a million births one would arrive and either protect the world, or wish to usher it to extinction. Our world had hit a point were contact with the civilizations of the stars was possible, and the call we received back...Was that of war.

Hundreds of armies, all under different flags, saw the possibility of a world like ours becoming a presence in the universe, so they sought to destroy us all.

The Heroes, Villains, and as many people of the human race put together, fought on a global scale as they attacked. All finding the same purpose that made them all equal; Survival. It was a massacre that would left not only our planet, but the universe in pain from the scars it left behind.

There were devastating losses on all sides. Billions of lives lost, and the world itself was forever changed by the war. The attacking armies, what was left, ran away when they were still outnumbered by the survivors, and the heroes that were caked in blood of their allies.

But the damage had been done. Most if not all cities were completely destroyed, the Human races population reduced to a meager handful, the environment ruined and scarred forever by the carnage of the war. And the Heroes that banded together, were even smaller in number.

Twenty years, after the war that broke apart the world, small settlements of people gather on the shorelines of broken continents. Trying to cling to survival. But radiation,chemical and bio weaponry have changed the fauna of the world. Creating monsters in the ruins, giant beasts, and terrible creatures of horror inspired imagination.

What Heroes remain fall under three groups now.

The Wanderer

The Broken, the forlorn. Heroes that no longer wish to deal with the human race. Either because of bad history, or that they see no point in protecting a race doomed to die. They keep to themselves, mainly using their powers to make a living. If they have any interaction with people at all, they try to keep it short in order to not grow attached. For it was their emotions and connections that left them broken.
The Guardian


Protectors, the kind. Heroes who still wish to help humanity. There are one to two heroes that will stay inside a town and guard it with their lives. Either from the monsters, or from Darklings. They will put everything they are to protect the people that are left, for they refuse to surrender to darkness.
The Darkling

Darklings are heroes that have gone dark, consumed by the dark forces, they seek to destroy what is left or to enslave it. Whether they were good or always evil does not matter, for they seek to rid of the hope that lingers in the ruined world.

Will you protect what Is left? Or will you abandon it?


Overview:

You can play from the three types of heroes, or the normal humans that are trying to survive. Events will occur such as monster attacks, Darkling Related events, and normal interaction. If there is more interest I would be interested in adding more in terms of new plot lines and stories. But for now this is a work in progress.

Rules
This will be freeform based roleplay, any PC fighting with PC's must be conversed with the other player, if no agreement is settled then it will be a dice roll by GM. This role play kink wise is open to all, just don't force a kink someone does not like on them, otherwise you may end up being the odd one out.

5,000 BTE
The Necromancers Fall
A tyrant ruled in the early years of the humanoid races. A powerful Lich that summoned forth the dead from many years ago to keep the people in check. But a massive revolt brought down the lich, along with a team of mysterious people with unique abilities. Their names are long forgotten.

100 BTE
The Beginnings of both Heroes and Technology, Further experimentation with both magic and furthering knowledge has brought upon the beginning age of technology, and the emergence of beings with powers that defy logic and reason.

Year 1
The Future began this day, portals that sent people across the world, medical care that brought people back from the dead, and now a world that carried heroes that protected the people...But this began the age of the end. For at the start of the new era, a Powerful Hero known as Gaia Crown sought to enslave the world with his own gathering of powerful heroes. But he was defeated from both the opposing heroes, and the new technology.

Year 30
The Oni Invasion; A war of Demons that came from the West, from an alternate dimension they came pouring out from it like blood from a wound. They were endless, and it took the might of regular people and heroes to put a stop to them. A hero known as the Oni King put an end to the war.

Year 50
The Drake Lord appeared, sending draconic avatars of destruction upon the planet. The war was terrible, and there were many innocent deaths, but finally it came to an end, when the hero who was called Scale Render, put an end to the war.

Year 100
The End War, the Day of Sorrow. When many armies collided across the planet with invaders from the stars....This marked the end of recorded events, from both the massive loss of history, technology, and lives. This marks the stages of what many call the End, others call, the Darkening Age.

1.All, its going to be a mixing pot.

2.Think a surface area of a state, with three settlements being capitals and smaller towns being cities. Half the size of the state of Oregon is the playing field for this rp.

Wanderer

Name & Titles
Seshimaru
King of Oni's
After the Demon army that raised in Japan surrendered as he marched upon the Capital, he was deemed the King...Which didn't stop him from slaughtering them all.
Demon Cleaver
A more infamous title of the demon invasion event.
Soul Reaper
The name used best to describe his powers and their origins.
Scale Render
After a fight with the Lord of Drakes, he was called Scale Render for his ferociousness in fighting the dragons, and then stealing their power from them.
Other
The Last Shadow, Breaker of Bravery, Rainmaker
Age
45
Passive Abilities

The Destroyer's Muscle
Seshimaru Has time and time again proven that he is one of the unmatched when it comes to physical strength. During the war he was able to disable giant alien spacecraft by sucker punching them into the ground. This power comes from the Soul of an ancient Demon lord that was bestowed upon him when he reached the right age.
The Avengers Speed
The Soul of a swift River spirit allows him to reach massive speeds that he uses to travel long distances. And respond quickly in combat.
The Juggernauts Hide
A soul of a Earth Titan is to thank for his incredibly durable body. Even with such a massive battle of the End War, Seshimaru was only able to walk away due to this power, which left so many others either dead or permanently crippled.
Powers
Soul Absorption
Seshimaru possesses the ability to absorb the souls of defeated foes which allows him to tap into the powers of his foe. Or take upon characteristics of the powers. He discovered this power when the man he served died, which gave unto him the Soul of the Kings Armorer.

Soul of the King Armorer
A man he served while he was growing up, as an assistant of sorts. The man had the power to create weapons, and armor. But his most notable skill was to summon a suit of armor that catered to the owner. It suited to their powers and transformed with them. But when the man died, his soul was absorbed by Seshimaru. Bestowing him the power to summon an array of weapons, but the armor is the main reason he uses this power. Which takes the form of an incomplete set of Samurai Armor. It has magical properties, allowing him to understand any weapon he uses, which means he becomes experienced in the weapon arts of every weapon, and how to effectively use them. Along with the ability to project a magical barrier when the attacks seem dangerous.

Drake Lords Soul
An unstable power that he hardly uses due to his fear of the power, and his lack of courage when it comes to it. However, if used properly, it can tap into 'Drakken Power' Which allows him to use avatars of dragons to project energy based attacks. More study is needed to identify the power of the Drake Soul.


Outfits
Neutral Robes
Soul Form

Weapons
Some Weapons possess magical properties, all different from each other.

Some of note;

River Tooth
An extremely sharp blade, cuts made by this blade have a hard time healing. It is swift, elegant and deadly. However have a weakness against heavily armored foes.

Overlord
A Greatsword from a fallen demon lord. Summons flames from the flames spirits as it is swung. Useless underwater.

Ruby
An extremely fast weapon that imbues the user with incredible swiftness. Also allows the user to levitate off the ground and glide about much like a reaper.

Totem
A massive Glaive from an old Warlord. It is a weapon that never breaks, and has a hard sharp edge, however its greatest strength is it's ability to cause explosions when the blade sinks into a surface, and expels massive amounts of energy in order to release itself.

Graveyard
A seemingly broken blade, with no purpose. However Seshimaru Persists in using it.


Backstory

Seshimaru was born into a family that was enslaved by a powerful Tyrant that arose on the Earth many years before the beginning of the End war. He was put to work under the armor or of the King, who was a terrible man. Beatings were regular, the teaching was impossible to follow...But Seshimaru's power came to use when the Kings fortress was overwhelmed and the Armorer fell. His soul, upon trying to leave, was instead absorbed into Seshimaru. Allowing him to attain his powers.
With no where to turn, Seshimaru and his family ran to the wilderness, where Seshimaru learned of his new powers.
In a modern world, a power like Seshimaru's would be seen as a threat, so he tried to keep it secret. However, when he saw people in danger, he used his powers to save them, and found that it was the most exhilarating thing in the world to be a form of 'Guardian.'
And soon, his powers became globally regarded when he fought and killed the Demon menace 'The Destroyer' in a Perilous battle of quick thinking. Gaining his powers of immeasurable strength, he was able to kill the Earth Titan that arose in a great rage, gaining his impenetrable hide. And this proved handy to trick the Enraged Avenging River Spirit by allowing it to land a killing blow, but turned it against it and killed the spirit.
But the greatest battle next to the End War was the Drake Lords Invasion. A powerful Demon that summoned ancient dragon spirits that befell the planet. Seshimaru, with every ounce of strength he had fought one on one with the Drake Lord, and vanquished him, gaining his unpredictable soul which Seshimaru has given up on being able to use.
But it was the End war that broke this once proud heroes soul. Endless Death surrounded the hero as he kept fighting, and fighting, and fighting. Until he sat atop a pile of degree, bodies, and friends. He sat there, the war coming to a close. Where he quietly watched the end of everything happen around him...It was this, that caused him to distance himself, and become a Wandering hero...He can never afford to become close again.

Hopefully this character allows some creativity to some of you and to let you know how far you can go with your abilities and powers. I'll be working on a Timeline of the world to give people an idea of what kind of world this is, and in case you want to join in in some of the history of the world. Feel free to add in your own plot lines, and if let me know if you want any added to the recorded timeline.

There has been an edit in the main post with a timeline those of you can look at, but to give you an idea of what kinds of characters you can have;

Any races go, from Kemomini to Orcs, to Aliens. These beings have superpowers, or normal abilities to their race. If you have any questions on making a character I'm free to help.

Oh, I should mention that every hero has the ability of immortality. They never age past twenty years of age, so they are destined to roam the dying world forever.

Just a dark note I forgot to add.

Appearance:

Classification: Guardian
Name & Titles: Sekaiju Shunka
  • Daughter of Nature - a title people of the town call Shunka by, for making the surrounding area sustainable for self-sustaining livelihoods.
  • Magistra Magia - the ability to wield eight base elements of magic with a master's proficiency granted Shunka respect from friends and foe alike with this title.
  • Maiden of Healing - Shunka has participated in the war as a healer in the rearguard during the Day of Sorrow and the period before that. In order to achieve the last push, she acted as the focus for a large scale revival magic to restore a large number of warriors back into combat capability. She was rendered comatose for a period of a year from the massive amount of energy spent, waking up to find the war over.
Age: 24
Passive Abilities:
  • Blessings of the World Tree - Natural energy constantly flow and fill Shunka with magic power. At this point only the World Tree remaining at the town she watches over remains to keep her going, but at the same time keeps her from venturing far from the town. Injuries inflicted on her heal immediately as long as she is close to the World Tree, and she is effectively immortal as well. If she were to be killed while outside the range of the World Tree, she will remain in a suspended state until she is brought back to the World Tree's roots. It will take her a day to fully come back to life once the requirements are met.
  • Mastery of Elements - The energy coming from the World Tree granted Shunka with the ability to harness the powers of varying elements of the world, letting her use a wide variety of magic for attack, defense, and other purposes.
Powers:
  • Plant Control - Shunka has the ability to command plants according to her will. She can get them to move, grow, and evolve according to her thoughts, and they will defend her against harm. She can also create effective herbal remedies that can heal wounds, cure sickness, and at extreme cases, bring people to life. The latter will require a considerable amount of time to prepare and use up her power.
  • Elemental Magic - Shunka has mastery over the following base types of magic: light, dark, fire, water, earth, wind, nature, and aura. At her weakest, Shunka is limited to the use of nature magic.
  • Ritual of the World Tree - Taking an entire day to concentrate and gather energy, Shunka can plant a World Tree seed in a location. As long as there is air, water, and sunlight, the tree will grow and restore the surrounding area into a fertile and habitable landscape. Shunka will require a full day of bed rest after this.
Outfits:
  • Priestess outfit - ceremonial robes that Shunka wears around town when she engages in her duties as its guardian.
  • Adventurer outfit - protective garbs against the harsh environment when Shunka has to venture outside the town.
Weapons:
Branch of the World Tree - a staff naturally shaped from the World Tree. It serves as a battery of energy for Shunka to draw power from, but she can only fight at one-eighth of her full strength when beyond the range of the World Tree.

Backstory:
Shunka belonged to an ancient family that serves to protect the balance of nature in the world. Her kind usually blend in with the population, sometimes not even getting to use the powers they learned during times the world was at peace. Things were different with the generation Shunka was born into - she quickly rose within her family ranks due to receiving the blessings of the World Tree, and was thrust with the responsibility of protecting the final stronghold of the world.

Her burden has lightened ever since the war has ended, and Shunka has started adjusting to a world that now laid in ruins. She felt that things might have changed if she did not succumb to the effects of the large scale revival magic, but decided to take it upon herself to begin the means of restoring the world with the town she watched over as a start. She hopes to seek out other heroes from the war in an effort to restore the world to its former state.

So as for threads, I was thinking for now three threads, one thread for you Steir, which is the city your guarding, a second city in the opposite side of the landmass, and then the no mans land, how does that sound?

Just looking at things from a narrative perspective, wouldn't it make more sense for the final war to be the war against Gaia Crown as opposed to space invaders? That seems like something more darkly ironic than aliens blowing everything up?
