what's this?

Posted by Lucina , in Games & Trivia / RPG Oct 20 2017 · 145 views

Welcome to Okoto. It has seen half a century of near-constant conflict since the year 296 AE (After Ekimu). Voxumo’s Rebellion; the War for the Throne; the Battle for the Dawn; the War of Five Kings; the Magical Crisis. Each one seemed to permanently alter the landscape of the island, only for everything to change when the next rolled around. As it stands now, in 347 AE, the island is divided into six regions. The nations of Kamuk, Agua Hielo, Karamu and Aodhiim; the centrally located Qendroj City; and the Barren, an abandoned ruin in the southwest. The past fifty years have taken a toll on the island. Historians, optimistic, refer to the Magical Crisis as the end of a time period known as the Age of War… but after six years of a shaky peace, calamity threatens Okoto once again.

Something stirs in the Barren.

All across Okoto, the local wildlife has turned hostile, corrupted by a dark force. For once, this mystery has been quickly solved, as the legendary Spirit of the Wild, Keetongu - long thought to be only a myth - has been sighted all over Okoto. Experts within all regions, particularly associated with the Knights of Ekimu, have noted that both Keetongu and the hostile beasts share several notable traits. Gleaming red eyes and a shadowy aura surrounding them are the most noteworthy, although temperature drops have been noted as well.

With Keetongu corrupted and wildlife liable to become hostile at any moment, travel has become extremely dangerous, and trade even riskier than before. Relations between the nations are holding for now, but Okoto has a history of dealing with similar strain rather poorly… and with Toa Lewa, Toa Kopaka, and Toa Pohatu all now fighting against their own failing sanity after encounters with Keetongu, relations will crumble faster than ever before.

The only beasts that seem to be completely free from corruption are the six mythical Elemental Creatures. Formed millennia ago from the dying energies of an ancient Titan, sightings of these creatures were sporadic and rare up until three hundred years ago, when they vanished entirely. Having been thought lost for centuries, the sudden reappearance of the creatures - with all six having been spotted all over Okoto multiple times - in recent months has some Protectors convinced that they are a sign that Okoto’s greatest conflict is still to come, and soon.

For once, Okoto might face threats united together. But the island’s leaders have always been power hungry, and there are always those who seek any available opportunity to tear others down to build themselves up. As old foes weaken and the chance to avenge old wounds opens, how many might resist the urge to fight once more?

This is the Great Game, the Game of Thrones, where you win or you die.

The Age of War has ended.

The Age of Shadow has begun.

Look everybody! It's amazing! It's Keetongu!

In the Age of War the world was divided, shrouded by deceit. A land of hostile terrain, masks and Everlasting Skeletons. 
 
But then there was the Toa and with the Toa came Unity. Duty and Destiny, Greetings and Farewells, and of course, Trust and Betrayal. Then from the Past, They came, and found the power of the ancients within their Unity.
 
With the strength of the Ancients, they challenged the Skeletons.
 
Thus began the Age of Shadow. But soon the shadows will fade and only Light will remain.

To the first part: This world is about as hectic as Roman history following the Pax Romana (except with magic!), after which entailed a thousand years consisting of myriads of on and off civil wars, foreign invasions, depopulation, fluctuating borders, brief periods of renaissance, and then imperial death and rebirth before finality.

"Patience is a virtue and for once a jungle official has it." Rassilon.

 

It's funny you should say that, considering the jungle player storylines....

Funny in a good or bad way?

 

Anyway in my creating of the Rassilon character I would like him to be illegitimate. He has no true house or proper Surname. He would have a placeholder name like Vine of Bark kinda like Jon Snow in the show.
