              This is where it all starts. This is the land of the broken and the saviors. This land we call home, it isn't what it use to be. Too bad those legends didn't tell of the actual future. Too bad they blinded our people into believing they could live happily. Happy endings don't exist. You live, you die. The end. What if it can be changed? I think the real question is, Can we?

                    There are Four major continents on Kimea and some smaller islands. Different cultures exist in the different areas, some having
                    similarities. The land is split up with the Rebels controlling a small portion in the middle of the large continent and the Godlox
                    controlling the rest.
                    There are a variety of races and beings that call this land home. Ranging from Humans to cat beings. From Shape shifters to
                    Nagas. There aren't just humanoid beings that wonder the lands, many beasts do as well.

                    The geography of the land various in different directions. There are many types of climates and conditions of the land. Things have
                    slightly changed since the Dark God's take over, but most of it is similar to how it use to be.

                    The world can be a cruel place, you best be ready for it.

                    To find out more about the main cities, check out the forum on Kimea.

Ever since the beginning of life on Kimea, there have always been Legends to talk about the future. Some are well known, others not so much, and some are not even known about yet. Since the very beginning of time, there has been a particular legend all have followed. This legend talked about the First Born Daughter of the Ruler. It told about world peace and of everlasting happiness. The one thing it did not tell, however, was how to obtain such things. None knew what to do to obtain it, but they did realize the bottom half was missing. And throughout each ruler’s life, they have tried to find this information. After several centuries it was finally found, deep within a tomb built for the Goddess Sevilin, the protector of Life. The Legend was put together and read aloud to all the country. The legend stated:

                                  You who is born first of mighty ruling. You shall lead the land. Take to the sky buildings. Travel
                                  across vast lands. With your soul you shall visit the sky seven times. Each time the world will
                                  make sense. Information will flood your mind and cloud your vision. Do no fear child of mighty
                                  ruling, you will not need to see the land to know the peace that will follow. Once the child
                                  travels and ends their journey, she will find the lighted path. The path will lead the first born to
                                  the righteous place. Inside, her soul will ascend to the top with thee help of the sky. Her body
                                  will stay with the land and peace will spread across the land.


With this knowledge in mind, the country set out to try and bring about the new world it spoke of, the perfect paradise. The oldest daughter of the King Gronado started her journey, only to end up dead a week later. No one understood what happened to her, but they all knew their chance at salvation had just ended; it would be until the next ruler before the chance showed itself again.

What they did not know was that a twin legend was being spread around the towns. It finally reached the King’s ears and he needed to do something to shut this down. He held a meeting, one that invited all the country to attend. It was here that he had plans to end this once and for all, but as the meeting started, something unexpected occurred. Someone with the twin legend appeared in the audience. It was not just words they spoke; they had the actual scroll to back themselves up with. This new legend stated:

                                  You who is born first of mighty ruling. You shall lead the land. Take to the sky buildings. Travel
                                  across vast lands. With your soul you shall visit the sky seven times. Each time the world will
                                  make sense. Information will flood your mind and cloud your vision. Do no fear child of mighty
                                  ruling, you will not need to see the land to know the peace that will follow. Once the child
                                  travels and ends their journey, she will find the lighted path. The path will lead the first born to
                                  the righteous place. Inside, her soul will ascend to the top with thee help of the sky. Her body
                                  will stay with the land and peace will spread across the land. However, if the man of the dark
                                  exist, do not make this journey child. He will devour your soul on its way. Blood and smoke will
                                  rain from the sky and cover the lands. He will rise to power and destroy what makes you alive.
                                  Once this happens, there is no going back.


It wasn’t far from this that the country split onto two sides, those believing the legend and those believing the twin legend. A war was imminent. Sure enough, it had come exactly two years after the appareance of the new legend. Many died in the name of the legends, but it would not stop there. Three major factions appeared from this. The Eternalist, the Demonish, and the Godlox, each with their own view on the two legends.
The Eternalists believed the first legend, the one they considered original. They would fight and protect the Daughter and get her to the Eternal Tower. It was their duty and their lives they put on the line for this girl. It did not matter; many would die just to bring salvation to others. The Demonish, on the other hand, believed highly in the twin legend. They knew if the Daughter made it to the Eternal Tower, life as they knew it would be gone forever. There would be no salvation, only pain and misery. They fought and killed to prevent the world from falling into hell. Lastly was the Godlox. Who also believed in the second legend, but did this to bring about the Dark God. With his powers and abilities unleashed, they could serve their master and rule over the country of Kimea. They fought just like the Eternalist, to keep the girl alive, but for different reasons. They knew if they could help her reach the Eternal Tower, the world would be their masters.
The death of many Daughters has ruined the lands of Kimea. Destroying towns and towers even, but it would be nothing compared to what was to come.

Finally, after 4,938 years, the Eternalist managed to get the girl to the last tower. The news spread quickly and all the lives that had been given over the years seemed to finally be worth something. It was time to find out who was wrong and who was right. Everyone held their breath for the news that would change the world. And change the world it did. The young girl had died on her way up, but this was part of the legends. Her soul continued on and one of the legends was finally revealed as the correct one.
The skies darkened and the lands themselves seemed to turn red from all the bloodshed through the years. The waters dried up and the grass died. The lands were no longer livable and it became obvious before anything else happened that the Demonish had been right. The Dark God ripped his way from the grounds, breaking apart the lands to crawl his way from Hell. His power was nothing that anyone had ever seen. He carried a mirror on his back and quickly took over the lands. His first act would be one no one would forget. His mighty powers swept over the world and banished any hope the inhabitants would ever have.

As his dark power spread across the land, it wiped away the spirit of all were against him. Dust and debris clouded the sky, blocking out the sun and creating darkness that covered the lands. The people left had become mindless drones who just went through life. They had no emotions or feelings and were nothing more than sacks of skin. They were trapped away in a hard white shell. This was the way the Dark God liked it. The only ones who actually kept anything were the ones who he trusted and that followed him.

Unbeknownst to the Dark God, some people had managed to withstand his magic overtaking. Their magic abilities had been strong enough to protect them from his hand and keep their lifes. The one thing it could not do was stop him from locking away most their skill. They were still powerful in the arts of magic, but nothing compared to him. With this, they knew they needed to start a rebellion and take back the land they once loved. Secretly, the 7 sages took some of the mindless drones and worked on releasing their minds and souls. In the end, they realized all they could do was crack the shells over time. The actual revitalizing of the body was nothing they could do magically, it was an awakening of the soul the person themselves needed to do. With the help of the 7 sages, they would unlock the emotions of the fighters and have them join their cause.

The Dark God found out about the rising rebellion and attacked. The war was quick to spread and the land was covered in blood. The sages do their best to keep waking people, but the Dark God is doing his own share of recruitment. The real question is, where do you stand in this fight?



tl;dr: A legend existed. If the First Born daughter of the King made it to all the towers peace would cover the land. Another legend popped up stating if she did this a dark being would take over and destroy the world. People fought over it and a war broke out. Lots of people died. After several years a princess made it. The second legend was correct. The Dark God took over and locked away everyone's soul making them mindless drones. 7 sages were strong enough to block his power. They create a rebellion and are trying to unlock people. Dark God found out, the sides are at war. Basically.

Godlox - The followers of the Dark God. At first this was the side who believed in his legend to begin with and wanted the world to be changed. Now they are those who side with him and fight for his cause. Taking out all that oppose the Dark God.

Rebellion - The followers of the Seven Sages. They were turned to white drones, or changed sides, and were unlocked by the Sages. They fight against the Dark God and what he has done to the land. They want it to turn back to how it use to be. They want peace and to be able to live normal lives. Some of the rebellion do not fight. They do not believe in any of this but have chosen this side to try and live peacefully and not do the Dark God's bidding.

*Actual images will be colored*

Stage One :: Locked
xxSince the spell cast over the land by the Dark God, your character has been locked away within a shell of their former selves. The hard white outer
xxshells reveals only an outline of what they actually look like. There isn't much they can do but be mindless drones.

Stage Two :: Soul Release
xxA special something has awaken inside of you, breaking the Dark God's spell and starting to release you from his hold. The white shell is cracking and
xxbreaking into pieces. Soon your character should be able to be whole again.

Stage Three :: War Newbie
xxNow that they are aware and awake, the war is calling. Though they have most likely never been part of one, the character is pulled into it. Being a
xxnewbie isn't so bad, just don't get killed.

Stage Four :: War Wager
xxEnough time and battles have passed that they now know what they are doing. Though it might not be something they enjoy, or they do, this is the life of the world now. War Wagers have managed to obtain better armor from fallen opponents.

Stage Five :: War Veteran
xxBloodshed, it means nothing to you. War is your life and has been the very breathe of you since you were awakened again. Your character is now a
xxWar Veteran and understands the mechanics of battle and this life. Their armor is top notch, just like their skill.

Battles are a large portion of how to grow and the world around Kimea. War without battles, well isn't really war at all. All stats for you character will be rolled by you and given to the stats you want. Each time your character grows, your stats will be added to by a specified number. But before we get into that, let's learn some about battling.

Battles use dice rolls and/or the random number generator. Each player takes turns attacking and whoever runs out of HP first loses.

xxHP :: Your life during battles. Each hit takes off from this. When it runs out, you lose.
xxSPEED :: The stat that determines which character will go first. In case of a tie, just roll a dice or something.
xxATTACK :: The physical possibility of how hard your character can hit.
xxMAGIC :: The magical possibility of how strong your character's magic is.
xxDEFENSE :: The amount your character blocks from incoming attacks.

These are the stats and the basic uses of them. To learn how to actually battle and the steps to take, head over to the battle guidelines thread.

Are the pets RP required?
xx- Yes, to help grow they are. As far as keeping one, not really.

Do I have to choose a side?
xx- Yes, we can't all be Sweden. If you choose the Rebels, you can be more neutral but still on a side. The Godlox hate anyone not on their side.

What race can I make my person?
xx- Whatever you want! As long as it is still humanoid I am fine with it.

So you're pretty open where the races are involved - does that mean I could create my own race?
xx- Any race you made up probably has a counterpart in the fantasy world. Use that. If you really can't find one that is what you have created, pm CanWe Mule to get clearance first.

What if I don't want to start out at the Locked stage, can I jump straight to War Veteran?
xx- All customs start at the first stage no matter what. All art you receive from events will also be at the first stage. There is no way to jump to any other stage.

You have a RP requirement I noticed, but is there a length of time we have to complete it?
xx- No, you may take as long as you want to complete them.
