The World of Ophad


Roleplay Expectations
I am not a reasonably skillful person, even in something I have done for years, but this is a first to start something off. This is a partially casual and partially lengthy nation rp, focused more so on nations, their actions, and their stories rather then characters. This really isn't a roleplay about winning, but more so on just a bunch of world building, interacting, and building a history to the nations you make. Pretty much anything is acceptable within the reason of the setting (and with approval), and word length is around a couple paragraphs+, the only real requirement is interest for the most part and to keep to the setting's rules. The plan is once the map is set up and people join on in, we'll go over the history of the region and start filling in the map with NPC nations, who's rp status will be controlled by the host and co-host, and hopefully as things pick up and get formalized, the npc nations will become more permanent and have actual nation stats to go along with them, but until then, NPC nations are not permanent and can be replaced/occupied at any time as more people join in.

The Divine

In the beginning, there was only the created and the void which it dwelled in. This created being, a being of light and sound, gave itself the name Lesphod, and built itself a great kingly city of white fire and clouds within the blackness, filling it with his creations. He forged himself a wife who was equal but opposite to him, and together each created 7 sons and daughters each, forging the first pantheon within the White City. Yet, as the white city extended its brightness to the corners of the darkness, the very shadow for which it created formed its own life, a power equal to the mighty creator. This creature, who's touch destroyed the creations, was hunted relentlessly by the gods of the White City, and conquered the darkness piece by piece, building and creating vast quantities of worlds, beacons which would become stars to fill the darkness with light, and populated these worlds with gleaming palaces and vast arrays of servants to guard these worlds against the shadow which haunted the void.

The two most fair of Lesphod's sons, Anar and Pelon became rivals of one another, and who's rivalry would shake the very heavens. Anar, the favored and most fair and beloved of his brothers and sisters, led great campaigns with his hated brother Zuuldrick against the shadow, but Pelon was tasked with planting the world and guarding them from the decay. Pelon created the first creations upon the celestial body of Ophad, but these creations were found out by Anar and were seen as abominations, and he destroyed them utterly and shamed Pelon for creating them. Pelon flew into a rage, and went back to his mother, who whispered the first sins into his ear, compelling him and the rest of his mother's creation to react. A great war broke out, in which Pelon and Anar slew one another over the world of Ophad, shattering their immortal souls. Anar's soul landed into the world, while the body of Pelon and later his traitorous mother, slew by Zuuldrick, would form from their decay the hellish landscape of fire and demon kind.

The Shadow, once hunted, claimed the Ophad as its own and guarded over the divine soul and took with it two great elder gods to guard it from the wrath and devouring hunger of the other elder gods and their children. The cultivation of Ophad formed the first true sentience of true creatures born free of all gods and capable of true free will. The Shadow, all powerful and great, guards the world along with Zuuldrick and his wife Ishala, from true divine interference.








So hopefully this gets off the ground when it can, but the main thing I need as of now is:
-Someone who can draw a pretty basic political map and is more then willing to change it as time flies
-A proper schedule, so I can organize how time passes. The plan is, every week that passes in real life will equate to one season having passed in Ophad
-and people who are actually interested ;_;
-Also, you can find me on Discord. Just @ me if you want more profound talking an' stuff.

This is sort of an example nation, but also the nation that I will put more focus on, in order to give people interested a general gist of the world an' stuff.

Kingdom of Cesia


  • It is a large northern kingdom on the Stagnant Sea in Northern Kevica
  • It is a large human nation, with pockets of mostly enslaved beastfolk and a dwarven minority
  • It is a maritime civilization based around the Great Range Bay
  • It is a Feudal Monarchy
  • A person from Cesia is a Cesian
  • It primarily is entrenched in the Noravar Culture, and while not a homeland of the culture, many is Cesia consider the kingdom the bulwark of their people.
  • It is primarily a worshipper of Noadam, an ancient and well revered ancient religion which modernized in recent years
  • It is a fairly xenophobic culture which holds very little love of outsiders
  • It speaks Cesiverian, and writes in Noramad, with some regional dialects.
  • Espionage - Decent
  • Wealth - Moderate
  • Population - 9,500,000
  • Army Size - 570,000

Also, as a partial reminder btw for those viewing, don't let that huge nation scare you away. The nation template is more of a guideline then a requirement and I am looking for roleplayers. The only real thing I am looking for is plausibility and a willingness to actually roleplay for the most part.

If you have any further questions, just @ me in the website's discord, as I have the same name as I do here, and talk me up if you are interested. I'm normally around for the most part.

I'm interested. If I realize that I'm still interested tomorrow, I'll start whipping up a nation in the next few days and talk to you on discord or whatever.

Quick question: where on the map do you think would be the most desert-like?

In the Terrain map, because I am bad at drawing, the little orange dots represent desert (since yellow is too hard to see). West Pehan is the most desert like. The northern part of that territory would be fairly similar to the Arabian desert

Sort of looking for a Middle-Eastern or Israel vibe to the environment, so that's perfect. Thanks!

Hopefully by the end of the week if all goes well, I will take some time to start up a personal discord server for discussion.
