The Earth is dying.




It has seemed that way for decades, possibly even centuries, but it has always been so slow that most mortals have simply gone numb to the planets ever fading radiance. There are only few ancient enough remember a world vibrant with life. However, something has happened recently that no one can ignore or brush off.

Winter has long been over according to the calendar, but the returning vegetation hasn't lasted with the Spring season. The great kingdom of Eredel once had thick forest sprawled across their entire territory, yet most of the trees have begun dropping every last leaf as they move closer to Summer. The strong rivers of Haventis have grown weak and some have even dried up completely. Vespora grows hotter each day and what little farmland Adland has won't grow enough crops to feed everyone.

The Gods and Goddesses of Olympus have heard the prayers of millions calling for help and thus they must act, yet they are forbidden from taking physical form on Earth. Zeus has, however, permitted them to each pick a one being of their choice to grant special abilities to in order to find a solution to this ever growing problem. It all seems a game to Zeus, seeing as he knows the answer, but the Gods will play along. They are tasked with guiding these mortals through visions and whatever means they see fit.

Hermes, the messenger God, has been given the responsibility of roping each of these chosen individuals together to form a quest to save the Earth. Zeus permits Hermes to tell this group one helpful bit of information; The key is to find Gaia's Heart. An old forgot legend says that eons ago, when the Titan Cronus overthrew his father from the throne, he also locked away his mother Gaia far away and left her there to die. Finding her could save the planet.

This group of heroes will face things they have never seen or experienced before, realizing that the world has so many magical wonders that they had been previously sheltered from. Although they have the Gods helping them along the way, they must prove themselves worthy and overcome many obstacles - including getting along with their counterparts.

Notes & Rules


  • This is set in medieval times
  • You may request another God/Goddess to be added to the list that may not be there already by PMing me or asking in the OOC
  • The first ability should not be overly powerful. Eventually our heroes will learn 2nd, more powerful abilities as we get further into our adventure.
  • You will not be controlling your God/Goddess much, unless instructed by myself or given approval. They will usually just be used to advance the story or character development.
  • Romance is encouraged. Don't be afraid to have certain characters know each other in different ways, either! It'll make the journey interesting.
  • No other characters may come from Xivia, I'd like to keep it's mysterious allure for now.
  • The general population is currently ignorant to mythical creatures existing. Only when our adventure begins and the
    Gods "open the eyes" of our characters will they realize that these things do exist.



  • I get we all have lives, so I don't expect you to make multiple posts a day. Lets shoot for at least once a week, though. Please let me know if you'll be going on hiatus as well.
  • Please no one-liners, especially ones that don't advance the story in any way. I expect at least 1-3 paragraphs per post, but it's definitely quality over quantity.
  • No real pictures please.
  • You can either PM me your character sheet application, or post it in the OOC for approval. Don't be afraid to ask questions either! :]

Two questions.

Can I request a variation in the power for Hades’ champion. I don’t think of Hades as a particularly dark god, so much as maybe a little grim. I was thinking instead of shadow control, maybe the champion can slip back and forth between the material plane and the underworld. As they become more powerful, they could delve deeper, and stay there longer.

The second thing is: are we only using Greek gods? The time period and cultures won’t be inspired by Ancient Greece?

That sounds like a great ability! I'll put that up there instead. :]

I'd prefer using only Greek Gods, they are what inspired the RP for me and the ones I know the most about. Plus the story arch I have in mind is fully centered around them haha The world will be pretty loosely inspired by Ancient Greece. The culture of believing in the Gods, like priests/priestesses specifically designated for each God, rituals, and other similar things will be there but the rest of the world is pretty much just a free for all and completely imagined.

Name: Eroebus

Age: 24
Kingdom: Vespora
God/Goddess: Hades
Occupation: Street charlatan.
Short Bio: Starting from the ripe old age of thirteen, Eroebus found work among a mercenary company. They were quite wealthy, and he had some decent training after they saw that he had survived his first handful of skirmishes.
Eroebus worked with them for nearly a decade, picking up the usual habits of gambling and drinking in off times, and quite handily portraying the Vesporan sellsword stereotype. He was forced out of he company after an injury to his shoulder. Though he recovered, he was no longer able to lift his shield all the way and, unable to form a phalanx properly, he was considered a liability.

Now Eroebus is among Vespora’s unusually high population of crippled veterans. Without a family trade or business to fall back on, he found that he could carve a niche out for himself in big cities by passing off pizar, an exotic card game, as a form of fortune telling. He works the streets, giving fortunes for coin. His deft fingers allow him to doctor the results when he lays out his cards, showing what he wants people to see.

Eroebus currently works in the capital of far flung Adlan, though he finds it a little tougher of a crowd.

@The Muse Yo, so are we working with pretty much the same prejudices and such of medieval times? In other words I want to do a POC, would it be normal for her to experience prejudice for her skin colour or is that not a part of this reality?

Yes, it'll be pretty much the same so she would definitely come across prejudice for her skin as well as her gender. Maybe not quite as extreme as the real thing but... for a good back story/character development why not haha
