Welcome to the Large-Scale RPG, Wielders. I am your GM, Oerba Yun.
"Wrought in flames, bathed in darkness. The world had seen no horror quite as terrifying.
Demons. The very essence of evil. They roamed the lands in droves, searching for any prey they could possibly find. These were dark and horrible days for those who lived within the walls of the country of Aegia. Terror was the only emotion they knew, all they could trust were themselves.
Humans were under siege; hundreds being killed each day. No one knew how long they would suffer, how long the nightmarish time would continue. The only way out would be death. This carnage continued for over 10 years; and the once flourishing country of Aegia found its numbers dwindled to less than a third.
The Demons had truly won. Or so it was believed.
There then came a strange enigma... an outsider to the suffering country. He wielded something the people had no access to: Magic. With this foreign ability, he began to help those in need, pushing back the demons.
However, even he could not hold them off for long. Therein, he decided to enlist help from the suffering people. He bestowed upon them weapons, each shape and power different; representing their hearts.
The people began to fight back under the leadership of the enigma. His strength and ferocity began to be mirrored in the very people that worked alongside him. There were 101 of them, including the man himself.
These people, after a long year of tireless warring, had finally defeated the last of the demonic plague upon their lands; pushing them back into the dark depths from which they came. There was much rejoicing.
After the Great Siege, these people became known as Angels; with their silent leader known as a God. The enigma ascended into the heavens, leaving the people with the task of rebuilding their world. From his numerous aliases, only one remains in tact: Lynchpin.
The 100 warriors that fought in this great war became known for their heroism. Their weapons wore numbers, each different from the other. These numbers ranged from 2 - 100. Under the numerous aliases these people were known under, one remains as the predominant name: Wielders."
- Aegian History, Section 1.26; Rise of the Wielders, Excerpt.
The Wielders universe is a large one, taking place mostly in the country of Aegia. Wielders are those who are bestowed with the power of one of the Weapons; supernatural weapons allowing the person use of magic and enhanced strength, speed, and durability. Along with this, the person's cognitive powers are enhanced far beyond a normal human's abilities; allowing for them to be able to sense supernatural beings. Not only this, but they are capable of fighting with their weapons; which take the shape of their very spirit and personality.
However, with all of these powers; there comes a price. Wielders are expected to be civil servants of sorts, tasked with ridding the world of demonic threats. That is what they were originally made for. However, over time, this sight was lost on many. A lot of these Wielders began to use their powers for selfish, even blasphemous deeds. As of now, all that is known is that there is 100 of these Wielders in existence; though, there are signs that more may be among us.
When signing up your character, he/she may not possess the same Wielder # as anyone else. Thus, I will post any # between 2 and 100 that is taken. You may only choose a # between those two.
Using the list map of the country of Aegia, one can choose which place they hail from. However, all will be required to start in the capital city (read the map to see which one it is).
This RP will be utilizing stats, much like another RP I've done. The stats will be Strength, Defense, Magic, and Speed. To spread your stats the on your starting profile, you will have 1000 points to distribute among them. Make sure that at least one contains 150 in its stat. None can be lower than that.
Every 100 points you gain after a spread, you may add one spell (e.g: If you have 200 points, you can add two spells). Finisher Spells are added for free, but only if you PM me it's effects. Stating them in here will do nothing to help you, as I will not add them. If my inbox is full, VM is always available.
