    The world was born as a seed of a pure place, a place of no darkness, no sorrow. Aria, the goddess of fate kissed upon this seed and gave birth to a form of happiness that could last forever, this offspring was known as the Gran Enigma Luminous, a crystal that shined through the universe and no dark could be seen, an imbalance of perfection… a gift for a new breed known to be humans. These humans were put upon this land in order to live free and to bring happiness upon the world, Aria's most beloved creation. They were the pawns that brought happiness to fate and to mankind, until in the vicinity of the universe there was a form of darkness… this perfection lasted forever, hundreds, thousands, millions, trillions of years… until a dark touch fell upon this world for a mere second, this quick darkness was known as the Void, a point of darkness that seemed to have not existed. This quick rush of darkness made one emotion of negativity… greed. Soon after, the humans were suddenly put into a sense of power and they began to feel a sense that the Gran Enigma Luminous wasn't for them. They soon built a tower known as the Tower of Indignation… the end was near… once they reached the Crystal they began to ponder what really ran inside of these crystals… what was it… they needed the power. A large fortress-like city known as the city of the sky was built and they soon began to develop strange ancient machines to dig inside of the crystal. But Aria had felt the presence of negativity and before they could obtain the knowledge, she cast her wrath upon her creations, they betrayed her gift to them. A meteor was sent upon them and the world was broken up and the city of the sky was soon to be ruins; The crystal itself had shattered all over the world and purity dimmed down to a smaller scale. A small amount of humans had survived and reset what they had cause. Time and space was created after the crash and centuries later people thrived on the planet. But darkness began to loom and it was an ever growing illness that infected everyone. Now that negativity and darkness remained, people began to find secrets about their past and a new threat of people are beginning to want the power of the Gran Enigma Luminous again, searching for power, searching for glory… will negative emotions end…?

    Locations: [Grows as you travel]

    [Island of Aria]

    Shaikos Town


    Shaikos Town is a small town that is located in the southern rural part of Aria Island. There is about a 215 population count here which is really low compared to the other towns. There most of the homegrown foods are farmed and sent to the other towns on the island. They are known for their summoners too, and this is the only town that you can find summoners. For the most part though, there aren't many summoners in town and they aren't at a high skill level either, which is sad considering this is the only place where summoners thrive. There is a school that teaches people how to use their gifts and abilities correctly called the Shaikos Hall for Martial Skills. The classes here consist on how to properly use a sword, bow, spear, and some forms of summoning and magic. These classes, however, are very low leveled and it's not very known outside of the town. There is a mayor's house located here who indeed is very elderly and he holds a sacred item that is rarely found throughout the world known as an Enigma Luminous(Crystal). These sacred jewels are used to create barriers at a certain length(many of them stretch far) and they protect cities and towns from monsters and smaller lifeforms that can attack humans. The crystals come in many different sizes and shapes and they were created from past civilizations. The crystal's structure inside is made up of a small unicycle technology that can be hardly seen from the eye, the only way to see it is with a transpicuous dial, but those are only a myth and they have been lost for centuries. A small shop is located here and they sell basic weapons, homegrown food products and clothing, but nothing outside of that.

    Cresimore City


    Cresimore City is the largest city on the island of Aria and it's located on the west side of the island south of Edge's Bay, a steep cliff that runs off a few miles off from the city. In terms of the formation of the city it sits on a hill so the different classes were based on the height and position of the house(there are a lot of stairs and ramps in the city that lead upward). They hold a population of around 8,678 people which is the largest of the island by far. They also have the largest government and army on the island and they say that there is a corrupt government behind it. There are different sections in the city and they all have different class systems: The Harvest, New, Full, Quarter, and Waning districts. The Harvest District is located in the center of the area, where the castle resides. In the center of the castle is a large overseeing stone sword with a Cresent Moon pattern that curves on the supposedly sharp part of the sword. It's a part of the castle and can be seen from a far distance and there is a large enigma crystal located inside of it. The government officials meet here each day in order to talk about political issues about the entire island, so in terms of government it's a monarchy. There is a king and a queen(who had died a year ago from a terrible assassination) and a princess who nobody has seen before. But, from what people have heard she loves to read books and knows a little amount of swordsmanship. The New District is where most of the rich class and the officials live. There are many large houses and courtyards here and it's located below the Harvest District. The Full District is the middle class where medium sized houses and business buildings are located, you can also find inns. It is a mixed area of different kinds of people and personalities. The Quarter district is the shopping district where many of the shops and buildings are, and last the Waning District… a place of poverty and it's the lowest class. Most of the people are friendly in this part of the city, but many stereotype them as greedy thugs.

    Requim Town


    Requim Town sits on the eastern side of the island and edges around the largest tree on the island. The tree is incredibly large and it's as if a house would be considered a beetle to the tree. The people of the two use it's nectar to make their specialty Ilex Tea that can only be found and sold from the tree. The houses rest beneath the tree and rim around the front side of it (the houses are facing Aria forest that are located West of Requim Town). People here are incredibly friendly and they are great with different types of herbs, flora, and fauna. The people here also are skilled in the art of archery and healing abilities due to their knowledge of herbs and remedies. They have a mayor here who holds an Enigma Luminous that protects them from violent and vicious creatures, but most of the peaceful animals cancel out this effect and they can enter the city at will without feeling an intense pain. A river flows through which allows the tree to continue to thrive and it is slowly expanding, it extends all the way to Aria Forest. It is known as Perish River due to a history of war on the river front centuries ago.

    Lake Spear


    Lake Spear is a beautiful lake where marine life from the ocean and ponds have mixed in a bizarre biological habitat. People from Requim have always fished here ever since the town was born and it is known for a strange rock that sticks out from the center of the lake, thus the name being spear lake. The lake in diameter is incredibly large so the rock is seen only as a dot if you look hard enough and if you stand on the rock's shore the rock extends about 235 feet in the air while the outside of the rock there are small cliff sides of limestone. There are a few fishing stores nearby and many people take boat rides in the lake in order to find good places to fish.

    Port Town Camidia


    Port Town Comidia is a town located off of the north cape of the Island of Aria and is known for shipping different goods and materials to the southern parts of the northern continent Terashonin and to the island chain Virina off towards the east. The people here are rather calm or depressed due to the fact that it rains here a lot which causes a negative atmosphere for most people. There houses here are made of white stone and there are many docks and ports off of the coast. This is the only way to travel to the other continents from the island and it's expensive to take a first class ship to the two nearby continents so it's cheaper to take lower class ships. They are the main source of fish on the island and they ship it to Cresimore City for their market district, which in return is a lot of money. The government has turned into a very shady type of government and thugs have taken a hold of this for their own benefit through bribes. Basically, many people run the town's money system, and when a bad individual becomes corrupted with the money it hurts the town overall and many people suffer from this in many different ways.

    Aria Forest


    Aria Forest is not only the only forest in the island, but one of the oldest places of the entire island and it is known to be the starting point of the island's formation. There is a history that this was actually the first place to rise above from the seas through history because the Goddess Aria had created man to hold a gift from above, the Enigma Luminous. This crystal was known to keep peace across the land and to preserve purity, and it indeed was known to be a large overbearing crystal that was literally as large as the island itself. But man wanted this unlimited energy for themselves and they built a tower in order to figure out the source of power. Through that they had built a fortress around the entire crystal and hey began to dissect it's glory, but Aria found out about this catastrophe and sent a meteor shower upon the land and through this the island had split off from the main continent and it was named after the Goddess herself. The enigma soon shattered and spread all across the land and darkness had arose once again soon to create monsters and dark beings. But they still could not come in contact or even be close to an enigma crystal without feeling a pain of purity. The forest is indeed large and is the center point of all of the cities and towns, many animals and monsters are located in the forest. Deep in the center of the forest is pond where some people have witnessed Aria herself to appear to grant people a good life, but it has been a myth for a long time.

    Forgotten Path


    Forgotten path is north of Cresimore town, a narrow path where cliffs choke the broken pathway. Many dead trees and plants are here and monsters thrive in this area. It is named the Forgotten Path for the reason that nobody has ever stepped foot on these broken and natural rocky bridge ways for centuries ever since the old civilization had their great war upon these lands. It is said to be the aftermath of the meteor ridding off all purity and where darkness formed once the civilization began to turn against the Enigma. Many of the paths here have fallen into the ocean due to natural erosion, earthquakes are common in these lands and there had been a prediction that the land will break off in the 600 years.

    Aria's Lance


    Aria's Lance is a mountain range located on a very large cape that is connected with the Forgotten path. It can be barely seen on the horizon from the top of Cresimore and is known to hold a dark evil that has been locked away ever since the world was broken… ever since purity was gone from the world there was a terrible darkness that formed into a creature, a soul that burned the opposite of a pure utopia. Many think that it doesn't exist, however, and only the devout believe that it still exists and only they have a clue of where it is in the mountain range through ancient scrolls and text. The mountain range overlooks a bluff. This crag overlooks the ocean and a path wraps around the side of the mountain into caves underneath the mountains.



    -Don't Godmod
    -At least when you are traveling please don't post one liners, battles are a different story though, they can be shorter posts
    -Do not argue with me, and we will get along
    -During fights DONT post multiple times.. you can only make one move in between each time the GM posts
    -When new people join they will start at level one, but they don't have to join the battles because they can get exp
    -Have fun!
    -PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE private message me if you want to add your own side quests and story.
    -You can only have four people during a fight
    -You can travel alone or with a group of people if you want

    RP Type:

    This is an rp, but it is also a game. When you rp you travel around and rp normally like you would, but for battles it turns into an rpg game. Also keep in mind that everyone that joins the rp will all travel together so no seperation. Basically there are options that you can choose from for your character, after everyone makes a move then the outcome will be posted by the GM(Game Master). Everyone has these options when they battle, however you can be creative with attacks in text, but always make sure to tell me what your move is:

    • Attack
    • Defend
    • Special
    • Magic
    • Equipment
    • Switch
    • Items
    • Wait
    • Switch
    • Run

    Leveling Up and Getting Stronger:
    Each time you level up you receive SP(Stat Points) and CP(Creative Points). Stat points are used to boost your stats like attack, defense, speed, etc. while creative points are used to create moves, the more CP you use the more effective it is, but the cost becomes greater. You can upgrade your attacks with your CP as well. Make sure to use brackets in the IC when you are trying to tell me to upgrade or create something.


    Battles are turn based in the rp and you can only have four people in a fight. Once all of the in battle players say the move they will make the GM will post and the outcome of the fight will commence. If you rush into enemies as a surprise you can initiate a preemptive hit allowing you to attack for a free turn, but they can also ambush you which is the opposite effect, they attack you for a free turn.

    Group Layout:

    The GM(Game Master/Me) will keep track of your stats as you travel and do things so don't worry about having to keep track of everything. Whenever you want to see the party data ask me so that I can post it for you. Here is what the group layout will look like:

    LVL 1
    62/70 | HP
    30/30 | MP
    13/20 | SP

    Here are the formulas so you curious birds aren't thinking that this isn't a game, simple but effective:

    Attack = (Str+LHweapon-def)+(Str+RHweapon-def)+(Str+Specialweapon-def)(Resistance = *1/2, Weakness = * 2)

    MA+Spell*2.7+RANG(100)(Resistance = *1/2, Weakness = * 2)

    Str+Skill*2.3+RAND(100)(Resistance = *1/2, Weakness = * 2)

    Dexterity/Evasion*.5 = % of hitting
