Helfyre :Unfortunatly due to the current complexity of both this shop and my life I no longer have the drive or will to continue this shop as it is. I and therefore closing Isle of Raios permanently. You may still rp your ruos in the guild but there will be no more events/breedings/etc

I plan on using the lines to create another shop in the future, a less complex and hopefully more user friendly one and anyone who owns a ruos may carry it to the other shop and rp however it will fall under the new shop concept whatever that may be. I will post a link to the new shop if and when i make it but until thin i am sorry to say this is good bye.

May we meet again.

To staff: Your services will still be selcomed in the new shop of course but if you feel that you do not with to continue with us i understand. Please send me a pm, my new name is Icefyre Rahu, let me know if you wish to remain on staff.

The Isle of Raios is a gigantic island that floats high above the clouds. This isle is home to a species of creature known as the Ruos, who have the ability to harness elemental magic.

Raios was once part of the land far below. the Ruos lived in peace and harmony with the other beings that inhabited the planet until one day something happened that changes the course of their lives forever...

Garo, the lord of darkness, declared war on the world and everything in it. He used his unspeakable power to capture the Ruos who were the most powerful of the life forms, and suck the live and magic out of them, adding to his own power. Slowly he began to exterminate their race and the future looked bleak.

It was only by the power of the strongest Ruos that the salvation of their people came about. Using all the magic they possessed they caused a gigantic mass of land to ascend to the sky, high out of Garo's reach and safe from the threat of his evil. The isle was huge, large enough to seem like a world of it's own. Below the planet fell to darkness and black clouds enveloped the dying world...

It has been centuries since the time of Garo and his evil and it has become nothing more then a legend. The Ruos thrive on the isle they named Raios after the hero that give his life force to raise the island to it's place in the heavens. Today the Ruos don't wonder about the world below their home for it's vast enough to support them and all is at peace.

Now in this time of peace the Ruos hone their elemental magic, testing their skills against each other in playful sport or lashing at each other to settle disputes. Some of the Ruos even host tournaments at different times of the year and the winners receive rare treasures and renown.

The terrors of their past are forgotten and all is well... for now.

The Ruos have four stages they go through in a normal life: Egg, Baby, Child, Adult.
User Image

The Egg is normally tended to by the parents or guardian who keep it warm and safe form harm. The shell normally reflects what kind of colors and marking the inner baby has and the feathers, one plucked from each parent normally signify element. The eggs must be incubated for a few day before they will hatch into a baby. Baby Ruos have no elemental abilities and are small, helpless and blind. These little babies are very vulnerable and must be watched and fed constantly. After a week or so the baby will open their eyes and become children. A Ruos child has very little elemental ability but enough to cause damage to another. Children can battle but have limited skills and tire easily. Eventually after they have matured and gained proficiency in their skills they will become adults. An adult Ruos had full control over it's elemental power and is ready to face the world. Adults can even settle down and have a family of their own.

Current RP requirements to grow an egg to a baby are:

None. Your egg will hatch in a few days to a week.

Current RP requirements to grow a baby to a child are:

None. Your baby will grow in about two weeks.

Current RP requirements to grow a child to an Adult are:

Five RPs. - 5 regular, 4 battle, and 1 solo

Current RP requirements to grow an Adult to an Elder are:

6 regular RPs, 7 battles, and 2 solos

There are also a couple of small critters that the Ruos have managed to befriend. Familiars can talk to the Ruos as well as each other.

Diriki are avians with lovely long tails. They can help a Ruos hunt and love anything shiny like a crystal or metal ore polished by a river. Usually very energetic.

Lunari are a species of large moth-like mammals that have a slight elemental ability to put things to sleep with dust from their wings. This can Help a Ruos catch pray or a nanny calm babies. They are good spirited and like to collect things, especially berries.

Familiars are sold in flatsales like Ruos and will be made available through customs.

When a Ruos has gained enough life experience and skills they will become elders. An elder Ruos is very strong and they are able to use their magic to it's full potential. These are the mightiest of all and are very large. Elders can become clan leaders and even start their own clans.

To have your Ruos become an elder you must log 10 Battle victories and at least three completed RPs

Elders lay more eggs per breeding and have more health/damage points in battle

Ruos can become Gods if they can prove themselves mighty enough.

A God has won many battles and honed their elemental power triggering a transformation of their bodies and an increase of their power. Gods can reign over a domain or choose not to. Gods with a domain can effect small changes to the world around them having to do with their domain.

Requirements to obtain a god or an elder are being reworked, please check back later.

Ruos have formed clans over the years on Raios. Clans are like large families and consist of Ruos from many elements or there can be clans of just a single element. For now there are five multi-element clans that have been established.

In a clan there are no ranks outside of leader, everyone is equal and is expected to hunt and care for everyone else within the clan.

A Ruos without a clan is considered an outsider and may have trouble caring for itself without the support of others. Lone Ruos tend to be withdrawn and tough-hearted.

|||The Luna'hoku|||
Leader: Elder Mooney
Element: Multiple
The Luna'hoku are a nocturnal clan who's territory spans from the edge of the desert to parts of the Ghastly Plains. These Ruos are skilled Hunters and are used to rough climates.

|||Marni's Clan|||
Leader: Elder Marni
Element: Multiple
Marni and her clan are skilled at healing. their territory is located in the Haiku Woods. Her clan is intelligent and use their skills to build shelters and hunt.

Leader: Elder Torn
Element: Multiple
Torn and his clan live inside the largest volcano of the Kaoz Mountains and live off the creatures that have adapted to the caverns. Temperature is variable from cool to very hot depending on how deep you are. Torn is a tough and rugged Fire Ruos who does not take well to treachery in his clan.

|||Dota's Clan|||
Leader: Elder Dotarasku
Element: Multiple

Where's the owner's list?
Click here for the owners album.

How many Ruos can I own?
As many as you like.

Can a Ruos of a certain element have colors that aren't common to that element?
Yes, and there is actually an item that allows you to change the color scheme of your Ruos (will not change the markings). But unless you buy the item these will only be available during events and rarely in raffles.

I want to make a super evil Ruos that hates everyone! Can I?
Sure but don't expect them to become the big bad. Garo is the big bad in this shop.

Can I get a Cosplay through customs?
If you can afford it. wink

Can my lone Ruos join a clan later if i decide i want them to?
for the four starter clans they can. PM a request to join a clan to the mule.

Do we host out own certs?
It's advised that you do.

Clan Q&A

Do we have to put our Ruos in a clan?
You used to be able to choose to have a lone Ruos but because people abused that option all ruos sold after 10/15/1011 MUST be in a clan. If you do not wish to agree with this then i'm afraid i can't help you. we already have over twice as many lone Ruos as clan ones and that just won't work. in the future I may change this but do not pester me to.

How can I make my own clan?
First you must have a Ruos that has reached either Elder or God stage. Then you ust RP regularly and finally you must fill out a form that will be posted once i start accepting new clan requests but not before so don't ask.

What if I don't agree with your rules?
Then PM or IM me and we will discuss it. But do not expect me to change my rules just because you tell me to. If we can't reach an agreement and you feel you have to leave IoR then that's unfortunate, i wish you well.

I have a question/suggestion/comment/issue! what do i do?
PM the mule about it and it will be handled as soon as possible.

If the matter simply cannot wait then you may AIM Helfyre ( Bidimus4256) but be sure to let her know who you are. All single word IMs will be blocked.

Breeding Q&A

How can I breed my Ruos?
Breeding season for Ruos is from Feburary to April and from August to October. More information on breeding will be available then.

How many eggs do i get?
Adults will lay anywhere from 2-4 eggs and elders will lay anywhere from 3-6 and element is dependent on the parent's element. In most cases it's the mother's element.

Can i breed two that I own?
You may only have three couples consisting of Ruos you own.

Do Ruos lifemate??
Yes. Once two Ruos breed they are mated unless an impassible separation of interests occurs between both owners in which case the case will be reviewed and a decision will be made by staff. You may not break a lifemating between two ruos you own.
