So I got the idea for this rp while playing Magic:The Gathering. Decided to make an rp from it but gonna make a few changes.

Story: In another plane of existence lies a world very different from our own. The world of endless summer where night is almost nonexistent, Lorwynn. Unlike our world, many tribes live here in peace, or something along those lines. Along with humans live many races who all seem to rely on a shaky truce, neither fighting nor communing with each other. One fateful day, the elder Treefolk, Ghastbark, foretold of a great disaster that would befall Lorynn. No one took heed of this warning and so, the event know as the Aurora swept across the world, Stealing the sun from the sky and plunging the world into a darkness. The races panicked and began to blame each other for what had happened. Now war has broken out on the once peaceful world of Lorynn and only the ancient Treefolk are left to find a way to fix what has happened. Being merely tree's they must find heroes among the other races to quest for the truth behind the Aurora.

Races: Theres quite a few races in Lorwynn but Im only going to make a few playable.

Humans: Ordinary humans, can use any magic magic or weapons depending on their backstory and training.

Elves: Elves are extremely vain and hate everything ugly and deformed. Excellent archers and scouts/assassins but are also very good with natural magics.

Kithkin: Mostly like Dwarves except that they have a telepathic like gift known as the thoughtweft. Excellent warriors and users of white magic.

Flamekin: Humanoid beings that are engulfed in flames on their upper body. They can wield flames at will and are excellent warriors. If their fire burns out then so does their life. They are very primitive in technology and live mostly in small villages.


Major Cites: These are the capitals of the races

Gilt Leaf Palace: Stronghold and capitol city of the elves deep within Gilt-leaf forest.

Burrenton: Capitol of the Kithkin and major trading center between the humans and Kithkin.

Shelldock: Port city and capitol of the humans.

Everpyre: Larget village of the Flamekin, located within a large mountain range.


Nonplayer races: These are other races of Lorwynn that arent directly used by the players.

Boggart: Goblin like creatures that live in swamps, they play pranks on other races and steal things for fun.

Giants: Rarely seen in highly populated areas. Very gently beings who only fight when provoked.

Merrow: Merfolk who live in the rivers and lakes of Lorwynn. They provide safe passage to innocent travelers across the waters and punish those who try to defile them.

Changelings: Shapshifting creatures who take the forms of creatures near them. Having no real thoughts of their own, they copy other creatures in form and thought.

Faeries: The fae are devious stealers of dreams and causer of nightmares. They visit being when they sleep and steal dreams to feed the fae queen, Oona.

Treefolk: Oldest of all the races on Lorwynn. They are shamanic in nature and tend to be guides to the other races.


Character profile:

Abilities (magic skill, melee skill that sort of thing)
Weakness: (Everyone has one, either a physical impairment, mental issues or prejudice against the other races which all elves have at some level.)
Apearance: (Heres an example of what the flamekin look like)

He took this quest and is now journeying to the Elder Ghastbark to learn more.

One day a traveling Flamekin told Vesslin of the Treefolk and their plan. He now travels to the ancient forests surround the caves of Velis Vel to find Ghastbark,in order to bring the sun back and stop the slaughter of his people.

Another day came to the dark world of Lorwynn, and with it a new battle. All across the plains of the once peaceful world, the blood of many had been spilled. On one of these battle scarred terrains now walked a lone soul looking for the truth. Vesslin's inner fire burned bright and lit his way across the sea of death. This time it was only the humans and time it could be my people... He walked on, looking down as little as possible.


On the fringes of the Gilt-Leaf forest, Barrus seemed to have gotten lost on his way to finding the treefolk he seeked. "Damn it...Why cant the elves just make so roads in this blasted forest!" He said as he marched through thick foliage in an attempt to find his way out and back to a more familiar path.

Lazarus was making his way towards the next town. he had absolutly no clue where he was but little did he care. he had left the forests a few days prior.

(question. are our characters all gong to group up or is it going to be them fighting?)
