Have you heard the call... ?
For when the darkness has consumed us,
forced a surrender of the light's love,
our Earth will slumber sheltered by the sacrifice.
Only when the stars are in a single harmony,
when the trees rustle their leaves once more in song,
will the Dawnlight's time of sacrifice be at an end
and the Dawnlight will call forth its most powerful army
using the five voices of those that come forward,
the five soldiers that heed the call.
The five guided by the one who'll hear her,
the one whose voice will ring out among the races.
The freedom of the essence of the Dawnlight
is also the freedom of Earth.
For a thousand years now the Twilight has held Earth in its harsh, brutal grasp after it captured the essence of the Dawnlight during the Eclipse Wars. Only in the deepest forests of magic has natural life been able to sustain itself beyond a withered state, for without the power of the Dawnlight evil in all its forms has known no boundaries. Only the Elven race has recollection of life before the Twilight, the others sustaining themselves on myths and legends, of tales handed down generation by generation. Only the words of a long told prophecy have kept those faithful to the Dawnlight hopeful that a new day would dawn...
A prophecy few thought would come to pass until now.
Times for Earth are not stirring well. The High King's daughter and heir has gone missing, thought to be captured by the dark ruler of the Twilight to take use of her Elven immortality by forcing her to submit her heart. Civil war is threatening to break out between the races of the Dawnlight, unable to sustain themselves any further against the darkness. Until one morning an old wizard races to the High King with a message and hope begins to sprout.
The Dawnlight has been heard.
The setting (environment, physical location descriptions, weather, and fantasy element) is akin to that of Middle Earth (LotR). The premise is that five individuals have been destined to find the essence of the Dawnlight, letting it restore freedom and life to Earth. Only those five who've heard the call can answer it, and it is all five that must stand together to find and free the Dawnlight. Of course, the Twilight does not want them to succeed and will be going against them at any cost.
Can the Dawnlight be freed before the destined five meet their demise? Races

Q & A and NotesContinually updated!Q
: So, is this just for five people? A
: Nope! While only five will be the "chosen ones," this is open to as many people that want to come play. Q
: Are you using a system for this game/epic saga? A
: No. I had thought about it, but none of the systems I'm familiar enough with to GM are a good fit with the idea. Q
: Will deities be provided, or is this abstract within the context of story. A
: Yes and no. I will be providing more information on the "religious structure" of the Dawnlight and the Twlight, but not to the degree of providing mountains of text. While some details will be provided, it'll more so stay in the background (remaining more or less abstract) but is there to be utilized if desired.Q
: How freely can we treat combat, I am not expecting the 5 to lay siege to a city by themselves, but strength wise how strong would they be?A
: That entirely depends from character to character; I expect a certain level of realism, but this is also fantasy. I adore well rounded characters; everyone, though, has that something they stand out in and some are truly blessed/highly talented/gifted/epic. It also depends on what happens when the characters work together and what each of them brings to the table, so to speak. I hope that all makes enough sense.
- The chosen five haven't yet been chosen, they won't be until all characters have been assembled.
- Character profiles will need to be approved via PM before being able to be submitted for the story. This is so I have an idea of what's coming into the story before anyone else does and so I can bug you with questions privately before hand. Plus, this gives you a chance to ask questions or bounce off ideas that we could possibly incorporate. Please do not post character profiles without the character being approved. If you do then you obviously have not read this part and that does not give off any good vibrations.
- I will not be accepting any profiles that include anime images. Sorry to those who like using cartoon images, but they won't be accepted here. However, considering this is a fantasy themed story, drawings that strictly portray your character are accepted. For example... This
would not be accepted, but this
