The New Rise of Eldaryn

[b]Genre & Atmosphere:[/b] Post Apocalypse SciFi Fantasy with DRAGONS.

[i]…and then the world fell.[/i]

It didn’t happen all at once, nor was it from one single cause. There was the plagues. The meteor shower. The wars. As time went by the population grew smaller and smaller. Cities fell and civilizations were lost. The wild took over again as people retreated from the derelict cities to smaller villages for the safety or numbers and supplies.

Slayers

Genre: Modern Goth/Vampire
Rating: PG-13 Minimal Cursing. Violence. No Blatant Sexual Scenes.
Location:
Timeline: Present Date

It is a modern gothic styled Earth (a cross between Underworld and Generic Fantasy?) where vampires, demons and werewolves very much exist and prey on the unsuspecting. There are those that call themselves Slayers; some traveling from place to place cleaning out the dangerous trash and some that stay to protect their home towns or cities. The world itself is a cross between modern earth and a victorian styled middle ages. There are huge bustling cities filled with technology and small towns built with nothing but sweat and time. The theories on where these beast of evil came from vary from religious to evolution, and all Slayers seem to have their own methods. Religion is also as varied – to worshiping a single God or many. Prophecies made by psychic are highly regarded by everyone as Truth. A real Psychic is rarely wrong when making a prophecy. In fact, there is one recent prophecy that is frightening the world – a tale of One that will rise from the fires to seek it’s revenge on ancient blood.

RANDOM INFO

A Slayer is someone that specializes in taking care of supernatural disturbances. A Slayers job usually depends on their personal preference. Some work as more of private detectives, solving minor problems – others are like assassins, getting rid of great evils. Not all Slayers are good, just as not all supernatural beasts are evil. A bad Slayer may see fit to kill every vampire they see, regardless of innocence. Or they may blackmail people to gain higher pay for doing services.

Scorpion Heart

Genre: Post Apocalyptic Fantasy with Modern Blend
Location: World of Lorenthu
Timeline:

It has been said in ancient texts that during the Dawn of the World, there was not one god, but many that helped create it. When man came to be, the gods divided amongst their favorites and the empires of old were formed. Axion, Isis, Jaxion and Prak amongst others. They were real and true, ruling their people as they pleased. But like man, gods have the same faults. The drive for power and control over everything beyond their domain. Axion, though respected in his tribes, craved for something more than just a mere piece of land to lord over. He desired the world. Despite his desire for power, Axion was not an evil god. Instead of waging war he suggested to his brethren that there should be a lord over all the gods. A king much like the empires of man. This suggestion was met with laughter and scorn. But a seed was planted that night. Each god finding the idea of ruler of everything more and more pleasing. Again they held council about this idea… and bickering came about. No one could agree who the King of Gods should be, as all wanted the power for themselves. Axion began to see the error of his idea, but by now it was too late. A war began, what came to be known as the War of the Gods, and by the end of it all the gods were no more.

Life went on in the lands of Lorenthu, as the humans had no true idea what become of their gods. Where once gods were known to be physical beings, soon their concept became purely spiritual. Centuries past, even millennia. Races began to doubt the gods even existed. As the world reached it’s peek during the Modern age, such things were laughable and called children’s tales.

It was like a cold rush of blizzard wind blowing over the entire land… The stories about the ‘End of the World’ all seemed to differ in the details of each telling, though the ending always remained the same. There would come a day when the gods of Lorenthu would be reborn in human vessels, awaiting the time when their power would be reclaimed and they would rule once more. At the time such prophecies were laughed over. There was always some priest or crackpot that said they could read the stars and the end of the world was coming. Tomorrow… or maybe next week. When the skies rained fire, and something shook the entire world, they stopped laughing. A dark gray mist covered the skies above and for years the rays of the sun were blocked from the lands. The skies finally cleared giving light once again revealing a world in ruins. Sadly it wasn’t even the disaster that destroyed it, but the panic over the end of the world.

These days though the lands are alive again, it’s been thrown back several hundreds of years in terms of culture and technologies. “Modern” things are near impossible to come by and would hardly be useful in today’s society. They are more of valuable antiquities than anything else. People are once again relying on the old ways.

Scavengers

Location: Vajacs

  • A once great and technologically advanced world now in ruin after endless war. The environment has been near completely destroyed, save for a few locations. The world is very much like a rocky desert.
  • Enclaves are towns/cities controlled by powerful families. They war constantly with each other and hate outsiders.
  • Scavengers are people that make a living searching the Barren Waste for things to sell.

    WORLD INFORMATION

    Vajacs was once a thriving world of ultra technology, its citizens living in bliss, secure in their mastery of their world. Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

    For the last several generations, Vajacs has been as it is now, a shattered wreck of its former glory. The great mega-cities are gone, replaced by small, controlled city-states called “Enclaves.” The only ones to have retained any technology intact, the Enclaves are run with an iron fist, controlled by small councils of no more than five men and women to an Enclave. The Enclaves are almost constantly at war with each other, fighting over technology and citizens.

    The majority of the world’s population live in the seemingly infinite wasteland known as the Barren Wastes. Crops and greenery are scarce. In places where plants and abundant water can be found, trading centers crop up, gatherings of scavengers , tradesmen, and merchants.

    Merchants make their livings by buying the products of tradesmen and the finds of scavengers and selling them to travelers – often Scavengers passing through on their way to another camp.

    Tradesmen are individuals who work with their hands – mechanics, blacksmiths, and the like. Their often mish-mash combinations of Pre-Fall technology and steam power tend to work in odd ways, and frequently don’t make sense at all. People often refer to them as “Gnomes,” though the origin of the term is long forgotten.

    And Scavengers, by far the most common, are those individuals who, in crews or as individuals, comb the Wastes for the remnants of technology left behind by the Fall and by the Enclaves’ endless wars. Scavengers’ life expectancies are short, but they stand to make a lot of money and be able to outfit themselves extremely well if they make a good find.

No matter the name, they had risen sending our civilization in to dark ages. Is this what ancient religions and prophecies predicted? The apocalypse?

    BASIC PLOT
    The Undead have risen, sending society in to a new era of fear and death! People must avoid being devoured, killed, maimed by these things while still carrying out their normal lives.

    Legacy

    Ratings: PG-13
    Genre: Borderline Sci-Fi.
    Time: 2052
    Location: Old New York

    THE PLOT

    It is the key to immortality.

    It holds the secret to life itself.

    It is the key that unlocks the mysteries of the universe.

    For untold generations, mankind has spread across the planet. Mighty empires rose and fell, and wars ravaged the countryside and changed history for generations to come. With the destruction of the great Galadorian Empire, the ways of magic and sorcery declined, giving way to the rise of technology. Over the next two thousand years, the old ways were utterly forgotten, and mankind entered a new age full of computers, space travel, and the completion of the Human Genome Project, which laid bare the mysteries of humanity.

    But some things will never change. Throughout all of history, only one story…only one legend has survived the passage of time, and lives still today. The story of the key device that was sought after by sage and warrior alike; the one item that was said to contain the great essence of God Himself.

    The Legacy.

    No one has ever seen the Legacy, and its origins are unknown. Only rumors of it unfathomable powers exist, but in all of history, it has never been found. Now, in this age of iron buildings and digital technology, the old ways are being remembered once more; the Legacy is making itself known. It wants to be found.

    And it wants to be used.

    PLOT STUFFS

    World Setting: 40 years after the attack on earth. One very trashed, run down Earth. The big cities are almost like skeletons, run down and ghetto-like, as most people have moved on to other planets due to earth’s ruin during the war.

    Plot: Man shows up in a bar ranting about “legacy keys” and the name “Pandora”, then he drops dead. A few minutes later some people come in, and shoot the place up looking for a box the dead man dropped… Basically, the players have to figure out what the box is, get the box, steal the box, try to keep the box out of bad people’s hands, ect.
