It has been six months since the Light vanished. Vile beasts plague the land and raze the earth wherever they appear. Shattered villages rot beneath the cruel sun and the blood of the innocent taints the soil. With every day that passes, Artimis edges closer to the brink of oblivion.

For the time being, life goes on. People across the four nations of the continent of Ibros spend each day counting their blessings. Though monsters lurk in the shadows that creep over the planet, they know that they have to push forward. They pray to their gods and ask for deliverance as they remain stalwart in the throng of the Blight.

The Divine Mother, Etro, remains silent in the face of our pleads. When the nations of Edren and Osprey were at each other’s throats and the north was embroiled in war, she had kept us safe. But where was she now? Why had she taken the Light from the Mothercrystal? Does she not hear our cries of terror and agony? All that we are faced with is the silence of her and her entourage. And now, our sworn enemies, the warmonger nation of Valheim, is taking steps to conquer us in the shadow of our plight.

Lord Leonhart VII of Balmung, the capital of Edren, was the one who took the first step in rising up against the Blight. He has sent out a plea to the nations of Ibros; he requests that any individuals who think they are capable of turning the tides come to his castle to lend their aid to the planet. They may be the only ones who are brave and strong enough to purge the Blight once and for all.

No one knows what Leonhart is to ask of his champions. The path before them brims with both the shades of monsters and the void of uncertainty– and on their shoulders rests the fate of Artimis.




1.) Players must be eighteen or older to join.

2.) If you are interested in joining, you must promise to be an active player in both the OOC and IC. OOC chatter, plotting, and announcements will be held in the roleplay’s Discord server. As for the IC, please post there at least once a week. Each post should be at least two longer paragraphs in length and have decent grammar.

3.) Do not ghost us. Your interest slots you as a candidate for the roleplay. If you need to step away from the roleplay, please let us know. No one will judge you for your decision, and it’s better than leaving us in the blue.

4.) Not every person who applies will be accepted. That means you are in charge of creating an interesting character who will be a pleasure to write with. Your writing style, personality, and overall activity will also be taken into consideration when judging your sheets. We will not be accepting characters who are over-the-top, nor will we be accepting characters created by problematic players.

Currently, I am looking for a group of about 8 people other than myself.

5.) Please read the lore. If something isn't clear, I'm always up to answer questions.

6.) All ideas for side-plots must be run by me first. I need to make sure it doesn't interfere with the overall plot of the story.

7.) You are allowed to make as many characters as you want, as long as you allocate proper amount of time to each of them. I recommend starting out with only one character before you settle on more.

8.) Classes are weapon locked. A samurai can't use a spear. A bard can't use a gun. A summoner can't use a sword.



The planet of Artimis consists of two continents and five countries that is divided by an ocean. Four of the nations resides on Ibros, the western continent, and one of them resides on Arbor, the eastern continent. Climate varies over the planet, but the general consensus is that, the more one travels northwards, the hotter and drier it gets.

Please see below for information on the five nations.













Most of Ibros believes in the Divine Mother Etro along with her entourage of seven minor deities:

Danube, the goddess of rivers and cleansing rains. Scholars and truth-seekers pray to her for her guidance.

Vania, the god of spring and flowers. Artists and scribes have rendered him a god of romantic and platonic love.

Himstus, the god of passion and war. Denizens of the continent believe that those who have an inextinguishable blaze within them have been blessed by Himstus.

Ilias, the god of wind and wanderers. They are portrayed as the breeze that ushers along dawn and dusk– beginnings and endings.

Dhinas, the god of lightning. Those who have been subject to corporal punishment are said to have been smote by Dhinas.

Imir, the goddess of the lost and unknown. People who have been abandoned or struggle to stay afloat often pray to Imir for company during hardened times.

Ithar, the god of fortune, destiny, and mercy. He is said to be Etro’s lover.



SOLLAN
The typical human being. They are widespread and found all over the planet.

FAYE
Tall, pointy-eared humanoids that resemble elves. They are also rather widespread, though not as much as Sollans.

MYSTREL
Human-like beings with cat ears, a long tail, and eyes with slit pupils. They are slightly shorter and more petite than Sollar. They are somewhat uncommon in Ibros; most of them are found in Osprey and Drana Asnaeu, where they live in patriarchal tribes. Males are chased out when they come of age and, while females are given the option to remain in their home, many choose to journey the world in search of a higher purpose.

VIERA
Taller than Sollans yet smaller than Faye, Viera bear long, rabbit-like ears and a snub nose. Their nomadic tribes scour out their paths across the whole continent, with the dominant females taking the lead and the submissive males following behind them. Like Mystrel, they are also found across the world, though roaming individuals are quite less common. Their names carry Icelandic origins.



On the planet of Artimis, magic takes two forms– it can appear naturally in the aether or it can be compressed into glowing spheres known as materia.

Only mages are able to innately draw upon the aether to cast their spells. Due to this, such incantations are much stronger than the ones that are produced by materia. Unfortunately, not much is known about how mages go about drawing their powers, which has led to the belief that the Mothercrystal’s Light has vanished due to them tampering with the aether. It is because of this that they are oftentimes met with scrutiny or fear… sometimes even a combination of both.

Materia, on the other hand, is completely man-made. Skael has created machines that compress the magic in the aether into small spheres that can fit into the palm of one’s hand. By using materia, any ordinary person can cast destructive and healing spells. Rumor has it that specific types of materia can be used to summon fearsome elementals to one's aid. While materia is a common sight in Skael and Edren, a significant amount of people believe that the process of creating materia borders on the unnatural.



Below are the currently available classes that one can choose from. Note that the ones at the bottom of the list are purely magic classes, while the ones above them are physical. Classes marked with a * are pretty rare to see and thus are limited in number.

Okay everyone, here's the OOC. As a reminder, only 8 other people will be accepted into the roleplay. Please think hard on the type of character you want to make!

If you haven't proclaimed interest on the interest check, you can still vie for a spot! :)

VAGRANT
Those who lug around massive, bladed weapons such as axes, greatswords, and scythes. They rely on overwhelming their opponents with powerful, animalistic blows that border on inhuman. There have been many stories of such individuals forging covenants with strange shades.

I'll probably start on my character tomorrow morning, if, like, all of the spots aren't filled out by then. :'D

I'm thinking going gunslinger, would the utilizing of gun-kata be considered a locked feature for now?

Might go for a gunbreaker, seems very cool and haven't seen it mentioned yet. I wonder if instead of a "big sword, big gun" like googling seems to suggest, it can be like... dual pistol daggers? Hmm.

Secondary options are rogue or gunslinger.

Probably a sellsword, maybe a Seed.
