    Our story takes place long, long ago, back when times were teetering on the edge of peaceful and destructive. When people lived happily but in constant fear. No one knew of what, but the air was thick in a heavy suspense. If only they had listened to the prophecy of their old. Then maybe things would have turned out for the better.

    INTRODUCTION


    There was a time when kings still ruled the Earth. A time where war could be right around the corner and people were always on feet. A time when fantasy and reality seemed to blend together.


    One day, long before our story ever takes place, a prophecy was foretold.


    When years grow long and peace seems to fall

    The world itself will rock and no longer will stand tall

    The skies above and earth below will seem to quake

    As destruction rises from thin air and causes all to brake

    Say your prays and hide your souls from these screaming ghosts

    Or be devoured by the devils and the ghouls they hosts

    When the War of All Creatures comes around

    The Army of the Heaven's will save the crown

    Children born with scale and claw

    With dragon eggs and powers of awe

    Having the help of Elves and those who side

    They hope to conquer the rising tide

    We all must hope with all our might and heart

    Trusting these simple words to a fault

    For the Children of the Scale will come to save our fall

    Or we drown in our blood as war consumes us all


    Years grew in number and the prophecy was soon forgotten to the world. All that remained from it were the stories people had created, of dragon riders and elves and the "War of All Creatures". People treated the seeming doom of all the Earth as if it was a children's bedtime story. For how could people be born with dragon scales if dragon's didn't exist? And how could Elves and magic be real if they were already lore long before the prophecy even came to be? The current king, King Galidon, kept the written prophecy out on guarded display, as he was the only person still believing in the words and was trying to remind his people of what was to come.


    Far off, in a small village near the very edge of the borders, was born a small child with golden scales across her shoulders and teeth as sharp as diamonds. The first known Dragon Child. The first sign of the pending doom to come.

    WORLD


    Our story takes place in the Land of Domum, a diverse and peaceful kingdom that was well known through out the world for being one of the greatest of all kingdoms. The royal line was full of kind and just rulers that cared deeply for the land and all of it's inhabitants. There are three main groups of people currently living in the land: humans, nymphs, and scaviens. The fourth sector of the land is considered a very holy place and has not been walked upon in thousands of years.

    SPECIES


    RULES



    - All FF Rules apply.

    - One dragon/Dragon Child per person. You can play as many characters as you want but none that are either of those after one.

    - Please keep the genders equal. We don't need fifty of one gender and two of the other.

    - Please keep the species equal as well.

    - Please don't bully. That's just childishly bad and will be reported.

    - Cussing is allowed but please keep it down. (Coming up with curses is not prohibited. This is a different world.)

    - Please ask before messing with other people's characters.

    - Any major plots should be run by me, but minor plotting between characters is fine.

    - Black out any R-Rated scenes or birthing scenes. Keep it PG-13 please.

    - Please have good writing skills. Five sentences per post at minimum.

    - I'm bad at making rules, so if I missed anything or you have any questions or problems, run them by me. Also, add your favorite of the dragon types in the Others section if you read this.

    Q & A


    Do I have to play one of your dragons?

    Yes, they're part of the plot. You can customize them in the guidelines I gave, but nothing beyond.


    Can I play an Elf?

    Yes! Go right ahead! You can play any of the species!


    Can I play just a Dragon?

    No, sorry. A dragon comes with a rider, and vice versa.


    How many characters can I play?

    As listed in the rules, you can play as many as you want, but only one Dragon Child/Dragon.


    Can I play a bad guy?

    Yes, but not now. They will be introduced later with their own species and everything.


    Can I make a subspecies (pet or animal found in the kingdom)?

    Totally! I would love to see all the little creatures you guys make. I outlined the kingdom, but you're all adding detail. :)


    Are Dragon Children any specific species?

    Nope! They can be Human, Nymph, Scavian, Elven, or even Hybrid!


    This Dragon's taken, but can I play another one?

    Nope. Only one dragon per type.


    If you have any other question, please feel free to ask!

    Some of my threads:


    The Unusual Patients of GreenGlen Laboratories: A jump-in thread about a mysterious incident that causes people to develop “symptoms”, mutations that give them superhuman powers and/or turn them into nonhuman monsters. These people, now called “patients”, are carted away to GreenGlen Laboratories to be studied, observed, tested, and experimented on.

    Once: A high fantasy fairy tale thread where the evil Black Dragon has manipulated the land of Everia’s citizens into doing her bidding, creating the sinister league known as the Dark Knights. In order to stop this, one band of heroes known as the Guardians must stick together before the world is under their rule.

    Welcome to Casa de la Lobo: A post-apocalyptic dog pack RP where a pack of dogs take refuge in an abandoned hotel after a mysterious flood evacuated all of the humans from the city.

  • So can only dragon children be dragon riders I’m assuming?


    Also, are dragons the only race with magical abilities?

  • Yep! And I just want to let you know, dragons age 1 in every 1000 years, so if you want Drom to be an older dragon, pick an age and add two zeros to it. Right now, he’s only about 7 years old from your form. And it’s perfectly fine if you need to sit a little more on his history.

  • Irondottir I really don't like posting on the signups until my form is finished, but- I have to ask: would a young child, say, around 8-10 years old be acceptable? I might even go as far as 12 or 13. You mentioned the Dragon Children were under 18, so I figure it's acceptable, but wanted to double check! I'm starting to get a lot of different ideas, so expect a bunch of changes before I'm actually done with my characters. (I'm loving this thread and it's making my creative mind run crazy! ;)) The major change will probably be the Child's dragon, which I will most likely be changing the imageclaim of to better suit my character.


    Maleth Firedrake Haha hey buddy! <3
