"On the eve of Her departure, She shed a single tear. She bade her children not to weep for Her absence, for She would always walk with them."

It was once said that of all of the goddess’ creations, humankind was her favorite. She was so overcome with love for humans that she shed numerous tears of joy. Those tears imbued them with her gift, manifesting in their ability to use magic. The humans used the magic given to them to carve their way through the world she had created for them. Over time, however, magic began to disappear as less were born with it, and humanity struggled. The humans prayed to the goddess for help, and in turn, she chose several humans to bless with a drop of her blood. This time, her gift was greater, and her influence was shown through symbols that would glow on their bodies. They were called Scions, and many worshiped them as they were living proof of the goddess’ blessing.

Over time, countries were formed around the Scions, and while the goddess’ influence was never forgotten, people’s attention turned to what the Scions could do for them instead. Royals and nobles often touted certain lineages for producing Scions, and those born of common blood were often snatched up by the nobility and given status and wealth. Notably, Scions are often discouraged from using their magic, leading to a majority becoming figureheads rather than the tools of war they were once feared to be. It isn’t unheard of for a Scion to be bested by other mages or even those without magic because of this. To combat any would-be assassins, most Scions are given bodyguards assigned from the church, and they are expertly trained to protect their charge.

The current era of peace throughout Estora has led to prosperity, albeit with the disappearance of the Scion of Time, a notable figure whose body was never found, tensions have been brewing. Some believe it to be the work of foreign threats, others believe the enemy comes from their own. The truth is only hidden to those who do not seek it.

















The roleplay will kick off during the Millennial Festival celebrating the birth of the original Scions. It is one of the few times a year where every Scion is gathered at the same place at the same time. They'll be accompanied by their Templars and expected at a grand ceremony. Players will have the option to play a Scion or a Templar and will be expected to keep up with their posts. I'm looking for a group of five to six players and hoping for people who are willing to coordinate and cooperate if necessary. If there are any questions please let me know and I'll answer right away.

I'll be brewing up my Scion of Shadow cs. I'm thinking he'll be something of an unconventional priest, and a poet of some renown. But he doesn't publish under his real name, because he doesn't want he doesn't want his writings to have to pass under the same scrutiny that a scion is normally due.

If you're still looking for a Templar to guard your shadow poet, I have ideas.

I dig the different vibe of this RP and I am always fond of intrigue, so if there's still space, I am more than a little bit interested.

Edit: I'll have a Character Sheet up in the immediate future for an application for the Scion of Metal.

EDIT 2: I apologize to the GM team for constantly updating this character. I have been cursed with ideas for this sad little man the past few days. Please, indulge my transgressions.

For ease of review, I present the following: Edmund Silvaine v1.03 Patch Notes:
  • Templar of Gravity confirmed
  • Included personality developments as a result of his unfortunate assignment, and a more significant character flaw.
  • Non-lethal weapon unlocked
  • Added ammunition to appearance section
  • Updated backstory to reintroduce Katarina based on hand-written notes I finally found
  • Updated backstory to reflect Scion assignment
  • Updated backstory to make clear background in fighting monsters in the woods, like the edgy bastard he is
  • Single sentence backstory addition regarding learning the guitar
  • Made Edmund an eepy boy
