  5. THE THIRD AGE So it was that the Gods slept once more. For 5000 years, the World-Sphere has been bereft of their guidance or their interference. Plans put in place for the Great Sleep, so carefully laid, but so easily cast aside by the crushing weight of time. Even a God must yield to entropy, some more than others. Old Gods have faded into memory, and new ones await their time to shape reality. The world they awaken to is familiar, for all that is is the result of their actions, but much has changed in their absence. The World-Sphere is more lived in, quite literally. In 5000 years, the peoples brought into being in the First and Second Ages have spread to all corners of the land and sea, with a spare few reaching the skies. Civilisation is now the norm, though the wild places of the world still carry wonders and horrors for all. To many it is the Great Continent, but to those subjects of the God-King, it is Venandar. A holy war, millenia long, came to its official end when the last of the Great Dragons ripped out the chest of St Mamo the Martyr atop the great ziggurat of Carda – the death throe of a mortally wounded creature. Such is ancient history. Carda now stands as the second city of the Divine Empire of the Venandi, the lionine statues replaced with dragons, the worship of the Ruby Lady supressed in its birthplace. The Empire is prosperous and orderly, with those Nyren who swear fealty to the God-King living comfortable lives. With so many generations after the conquest, this is the majority of them. Millions, Venandi and Nyren, praise the Divine Lineage, though the worship of them has somewhat... eclipsed praise of Exitius. After all, the Gods are silent now... the only Gods here are on the throne. But to say that western Venandar is a secure territory is a falacy. To join the Legions as a strippling whelp is, more than likely to be sent north or south – either is a brutal existence, where one’s only thought is of returning to the heartlands. Though Kaha’s nation fell, her faith did not, not everywhere. In the far north, Legionaries keep to their prayers and hope that the night will not bring down the crazed zealots of the Pati, or the Nyren refugees from old Carda who for generations devoted their entire culture to bloodshed and vengeance. They are called the Redsworn, those who would die for their dead goddess, and kill in such a vicious fashion that most Venandi recruits give up hope of total victory upon seeing their first sacrificed, blood drained comrades tied with their own flayed skin to a red lion banner. In the far south stalk the final curse of the Ruby Lady, the Nacatl. These manhunting creatures are known and feared across the World-Sphere, but are in no greater concentration than the place of their creation. For 5000 years, the Venandi have kept a wall across their southern border, the cities and clans beyond it sporadically reinforced and contacted... but these lands are known to be wild. If the Redsworn were savage, these beasts were worse... and more disconcerting still were the reports of collusion between these lost children of the Ruby Lady. The Empire’s heartlands hold true, however, but these continuous issues have prevented any great conquest of the other power of Venandar... Adamant is a nation risen like a phoenix from its ashes. Ruled by the Adamantine Mages, its borders stretch from Venandi territory on the western fringe of the Great Forest, and the Ravaniin eeries in the far north, to the southern and eastern coasts. It is an advanced state, at one with nature and magic, aided by magi-technological golems and the god-touched Librarian. The Mages have expanded their own reach across the entire World-Sphere, accepting not only Nyren into their order but others including Ravaniin, Kyrkal, Myrdians... and on at least two occasions, Worms. Even Venandi have been known to join, though to do so would be to forsake any tie to their former homeland. Such defectors live in fear of the possibility of Venandi-loyal Nyren spies slitting their throats in dark alleys, but this is largely superstition. Largely. Travel in this world is a peculiar thing. Beneath the sea, one can travel easily – provided you have gills. But the Mad Moons and their eratic flight, coupled with the great Chaos Orb floating in the ocean, makes the surface of the water somewhat unreliable to say the least. Sailing along coastlines is possible, but still not without its dangers. And so it was, that the peoples of the world came to travel the treacherous honeycombed caverns of the world for long distance travel. Pioneered by the Worms, who can simply batter safe passages through the masses of horrors in the deeps to create reasonably secure highways underground (like a giant, omnicidal pipe-cleaner), caravans of travellers hike through the deeps or ride the backs of worms to their destinations on other continents. This travel is not without its dangers, as the Thallites and Khepri that occasionally nab “foot traffic” can attest to. It is, however, easier than sailing. How this network began, few can remember, though some of the worms mention in their folklore that such a task was given to them by the “Dreaming Queen”. The mention of the shadowy ruler of the Sylvan Dominions is enough to make many travellers shut up, but rumours persist of those going deeper off the safe highways of the tunnel network and seeing towering black obelisks, and hearing whispers begging them to travel deeper underground... On the strangest continent of the World-Sphere, warped by the reality defying power of Lavrat-es, lies another insular nation. Its people live without fear of ravening beasts, or raiders, or horrors writhing up from the ground to devour them. The Nyren and Kyrkal who live on its coasts and southern grasslands know that they are fortunate, and so gladly pay a morbid tithe when demanded by their stalwart guardians. These are the lands of the Axial Protectorate, warded from threats and sternly controlled by the Yi Kieren. These ordered, inscrutable beings could be mistaken for armoured warriors of any land, or a particularly ornate adamant golem. The truth is stranger, and known only to a few. These children of Lavrat-es guard their lady’s realm against all who threaten it, most often raiders from the sea, or Khepri swarms boiling out of the caverns. This blood fuels their numbers. But blood, still, they demand in covenant from their charges. A holy vow, from the Yi Kieren to their serfs, that only they shall spill the blood of those who live in peace on this continent. Blood is let in ceremony for the armoured ones, in exchange for blood spared from the horror of the world. There are many other kingdoms, principalities, republics, chiefdoms and leagues in the world, too many to name. Those mentioned so far are only those who have seen the greatest impact from the actions of the Gods... but who knows what this Third Age will bring. The Gods awaken, and once more the World-Sphere is their plaything. ^^ Basic map.

    Kowen_Savio

    Kowen Savio was born in the woods to a Farfolk mother and a Highlander father near Ves. Due to the nature of Kowen’s mother, they never truly settled somewhere, nor too close to cities. Always a visitor to every land they were allowed to stay on for short periods of time. That also meant no siblings, the first reasons being: too much to take care of. Second reason: losing Karia -who was Kowen’s younger sister- to the danger of uninhabited woods, she was 6. Isolated as he was, he made friends around his age and animals during the brief times when they lived close enough to civilizations after his’s sister’s death. It didn’t do him much good since a friendship was broken so soon after it formed, so eventually he stopped making friends when he was 11. Kowen grew up singing, hunting and fishing with his father, also learned the skill of building temporary homes, tailoring as well as dress making from his mother. Their primary language was of his father’s, ((English, I’m assuming? I’m still learning the lore)) due to the areas they live near. Though Kowen had strong interest for magic around 12, he never learned how to use them because his father refused to use or teach any magic to Kowen. And he quickly lost interest after learning the reason from his mother. (His father’s Fire Evocation abilities harmed his past family and he was banished from said family.) When he was 16, they settled down somewhere in the wilderness after his father had become ill and refused medical attention. Although Kowen sneaked in herbs with his father’s meals, it didn’t last long, his father died 2 years later when he was 18. That was devastating for his mother, she hated losses, so she stuck to Kowen like glue. Anywhere he went, she went if she could. Kowen tried his best to bring his mother along everywhere but fear got the best of him while bringing his mother to hunts. With that fear of putting his mother in danger, he refused to bring his mother when he went out to hunt. A problem arose when he started leaving his mother alone, she self harmed to the absence of her son, to loneliness, if it went over a certain amount of time. At 23, after a hunt that turned dangerous upon an encounter with a stray raider disguised as a someone in need, Kowen returned home late to find his mother dead along with the experience of killing a man for the first time in his life. He buried his mother by his father and left his home. Forever roaming and refuses to form relationships with others to avoid more losses, quiet from his reserve life style, and never settling. He craved the idea of a bond, to have a friend or a lover, but even now, 5 years after his mother’s death, insecurity, lack of trust for others and fear of loss gets to him.
  12. A well known shade takes a look at the page, then nearly tosses it out before doing a quick double take. He brings it close to his mask’s visor, and he squints. “What the **** is my daughter doing taking over governments and establishing empires?” He then tucks the paper into his satchel and walks off, however he’d hold a hidden smile underneath his mask as a deep sense of pride began to swell within his chest.

  18. Frostena’s parents, Audra and Leon, were murdered when she was 4 years old by bandits. She lived with her grandparents until she turned 20. She now travels the world and loves adventure and reading. Frostena is now 38 and is still traveling the world.
  19. Exert from an old ascended dwarf's journal. "Azogs are renown warriors and a fearsom orc clan. Ive met many in my days as an ascended and continued to bump into them as I traveled. I fought beside one called Maur many times, against undead, renatians, and even other orcs. One could say a dwarf could depend on this orcs honor"
  20. “Basically, when your character and another player's character come into conflict, you should check in with that person OOC later to see if that person is okay. The same should be the case with conflict in LOTC.” What are we ******* Massivecraft?
  21. “A true legend to remember. No man of today could compare to the those who challenged the Scourge of the Nether.”
  22. I used to bandit a LOT, and always did it in rp. Both on my orc characters and human ones, thievery was the primary goal and never ended up killing almost anyone. I think the purpose of playing a villain, any kind for that matter, is to fill a niche in a story and provide a common goal to unite people. In doing so you create more rp, and help to turn mundane rp into something more memorable. I’m wholly opposed to any form of PVP besides nation vs nation battles and think that banditry should be done in rp. #RPdefault2019
