Heroic Era: Universe

Post  Amazing Pan-Sensei on Sat Jul 11, 2015 11:52 pm



Heroes, they are many things: protectors, adventurers, leaders, outlaws, saviors. There was a time before their reign, before their era. It is said that Sol was once a lifeless wasteland, a ravenous world where all struggled to survive. While legends exist of a time long ago of a golden age before the wasteland, it all just amount to just that: legends. Children died, injustice reigned supreme, the world was just a dying shell. And then the Caelestis Kings arrived, immortals said to have gained their eternal youth from the planet itself, gifted in all manner of sorcery. These immortal kings taught the denizens of Sol the secrets of magic, and with their teachings Sol was slowly rebuilt. Magic started a new golden age in Sol, under the just rule of the Caelestis Kings. However, all good things come to an end. He was named Caesar. He turned on his brothers, the other Caelestis Kings, and had them all killed before he himself was consumed by his own darkness. Without the leadership of the kings, Sol splintered into countless nations and wars began to break out across the land. Another era of darkness had begun, and new saviors were needed to bring an end to it. It was time for the Heroic Era to begin.

They didn't originally go by the title of "Hero", none of them did. They were just extraordinary individuals, those willing to do anything to protect Sol. They began to appear across the globe, until their united effort lead to an end to the 2nd Era of Darkness. The Heroic Era had begun. The title of Hero is essentially just a job, a term given to Sol's protectors. They have protected the world for hundreds of years. They are separated into Hero Guilds, organizations meant to regulate Heroes. There are countless Hero Guilds throughout Sol, all competing with one another. Heroes take on "Quests", often for money or other rewards. These quests can range from small tasks like rescuing a small cat to protecting an entire kingdom from an invasion. Heroes travel alone, in pairs, in small groups, in entire bands. Their origins and abilities vary, but they all share an aspiration: the protection of goal.

For years, Sol has remained relatively peaceful, to the point where even the Hero Guilds and their governing body: The Council of Legends has weakened tremendously in powers. In an era that grew more peaceful by the day, there was no more use for Heroes. That was, until a portal appeared over the Dream Isles. Far off the cast of the Holy Aurumian Kingdom existed a small collection of islands that worshiped dreams. Relatively far from the rest of Sol, they remained a small neutral force. And then the "Knightmares" appeared, warriors from another dimension. The residents of the Dream Isles believe them to be dark creatures from a world created by Sol's collective dreams. These beings had no interest in peace, only destruction. They raided villages, mutating the land into strange dream landscapes. Before long, the Dream Isles were completely taken over. The Knightmares have yet to leave the islands, but the rest of Sol knows it: they are coming. And with this new threat, a sudden wave of evil surfaced. Villains and monsters alike rose to challenge the Heroes, wars broke out, dungeons appeared. In a matter of months the world had spiraled into chaos. While before the Heroes were on the verge of losing their jobs, they suddenly found themselves to be the only line of defense between Sol and its enemies. This is a tale of Heroes and Villains. It's time to save Sol yet again.

Heroes

Despite all the legends and myths that surround the Heroes, becoming one is as easy as joining a Hero Guild. There are countless Hero Guilds all throughout Sol, each made of several Heroes whom take on "Quests". How one joins a Guild depends entirely upon the Guild. Some are very open to membership, other more prestigious Guilds are more difficult to get into. Heroes are ranked as such: E, D, C, B, A, S, SS, SSS, EX, and EX+ with guild leaders being except from this rating. Quests are ranked similarly, from E to EX+... however there are limitations to what Quests are open to Heroes. Quests ranked E-A are all fair game, however anything S and above is off limits to any Heroes who are not at least S ranked themselves. Naturally, the ranks are determined by how difficult the Quest likely is, the rewards are similar to the difficulty. S ranked Quests and above tend to be extremely challenging and dangerous, as well as long. Once a Quest is finished, the Heroes may return to their Guild where they will be paid. Generally speaking, Heroes only take Quests that meet a certain moral standard. Though killing is allowed, excessive killing is often looked down upon, payment is expected, but demanding excessive payment is considered wrong. Jobs that are accepted to be put up for Heroes to take by Guilds must also meet certain moral standards. Failure to do so will lead to one being kicked out of a guild, widespread corruption can lead to an entire Guild going renegade.

OOC

Heroic Era: Universe is a "Quest-based" Fantasy RP. Essentially, it's a large RP made up of several 1x1s and small RPs, similar to MSI. Unlike MSI, which is episodic based with set series, Heroic Era features Quests which are shorter than episodes and can be made by anybody. The RP is largely community based, focusing on the entire website world building. It can only be successful if Quests are made by several people. There are normal Quests which are rather episodic, S-ranked and above Quests which are large adventures that will take time, and even special events that will involve several Guilds working together. However, there's more than Quests, while your Heroes aren't saving Sol there are Social Zones where they can all interact with one another. You have the option to randomly sign up with other characters on Quests, or even make small RPs and 1x1s for those close to you.
