Despair Lost, The Elemental Aftermath
"Darkness shall be purged, melded with the light of truth and justice."
Four hundred years ago, a nexus of evil, Arintekiter, broke free of his prison and took his revenge upon the world. His escape would usher a reign of darkness, were it not for the actions of a pair of teen boys and their assembled team of warriors. With their might and willpower, Arintekiter's black candle was extinguished. Arintekiter's death released the energy he held, erasing the ability for the warriors to age.
Though Arintekiter's forces had razed the land and destroyed many cities and villages, there were survivors, pockets of people who had avoided the beasts and monsters. The heroes helped rebuild these lives, giving them homes and towns. They created a peaceful world without the corrupting darkness. Magic gradually faded from the world, no longer needed to protect the people.
Conflict, however, would not remain quelled forever. Soriwa Koshinaida held hatred for the warriors, for their magic violated the rules of nature. They threatened the order of life and his family. He built a city from which he started his campaign to pit the world against the heroes of old. He built two more cities as he gathered followers and power.
Upon his death, a group of elders took command, vowing to follow his wishes with an absolute, iron fist. Technology grew in leaps and bounds to counter Magic, and four more cities were built as the government of the world claimed itself the "Seven City Society," in adamant opposition to Magic and its users, the heroes of 200 years past, still alive due to the aftereffects of Arintekiter's defeat.
Magic was declared sin, all its users declared Heretics. Within the year, the Seven City Society captured and executed over half the members of the Heretics. Only those with close bonds remained, protecting each other from the Society's tyrannical and deadly fist.
Technology continued to grow, as the Society learned how to negate Magic and more easily capture or kill Heretics. The Heretics did as best they could, escaping, evading, and hiding. Now, scant few remain in comparison to the numbers in the old days. These few, lead by Daniel Tierro Psimon and Seth Infernio Riosa, have inspired some youth who have shaken indoctrination by the Society. These dissenters are labeled New Heretics, the heroes of old similarly labeled Old Heretics.
With the remaining, adamantly surviving members of the Heretics eluding their grasp, the Society has increased its efforts to exterminate all of the Heretics so they may build their utopia. Magitech, built in secret by the studies of the Old Heretics' possessions once captured, has created many of the worst items that have successfully captured the Heretics.
One such creation is the GOLIATH, a massive, intelligent machinoid creature whose sole purpose is to subdue or murder any Heretic it is sent after. Daniel and Seth encountered this beast, and though it disabled the monster for repairs, Daniel was captured as he saved Seth from the grip of the Society.
In three day's time, Daniel will be executed at Terra City, the oldest of the Seven Cities, and the Hall of Justice where criminals are punished. Seth Riosa, the leader of the Heretics, wishes nothing more than to stop this and save his closest friend and co-leader.
You, as the Player Characters, would thrust yourselves into this world of conflict as Heretics, New or Old, to fight the Seven City Society and what it stands for. Would you take the mantle and fight, or perish ignobly at the blade of a tyrannical, ignorant government?
*Note: You will not actually perish if you do not participate in this RP.
