    “… Is it still not ready?” spoke a hysterical man. “The elixir of eternal beauty that I so desire…”

    An emaciated man shrouded in shadow replied with a hoarse voice. “You ask the impossible. Why not call forth a demon and ask him for the potion?”

    “But that is where sport lies—driving sane men mad. If you could have anything you wanted at any time, that would take the thrill out of life. I’ve tired of all the death, destruction, and gore. The blood of virgins, the urine of babes, the innards of black dogs…. I am sick of these things. Even this blood, made by the artifice of humans… Ahhhh! Is there nothing to save me from this intolerable boredom? No special ritual, no amusing spectacle?”

    “If we were to be found out… If our activities came to light, certainly you and I would pay the ultimate price…”

    “Do you think I care? Surely the king and his researchers have tired of hunting wizards and alchemists by now. They are absorbed in their wars and fighting. So pitiful. They rush to death without tasting true beauty or the joys of life. Enough. Let us be off. The Black Sabbath commences tonight…. You and I are to become tools of the dark and taste the limits of sanity. That is… as long as you do not provoke my wrath.”


    It was a time of swords and sorcery, when monsters still walked the earth, a time of confusion and chaos. The king of Hardland had initiated a revolution. He led his kingdom to embrace things industrial, and abandon the magical arts and the worship of Nature… Wielding the power of technology, did thus become the world’s most powerful nation, Hardland was renowned as the Kingdom of a Thousand Years.

    In order to usher in this age of revolution, however, culture and tradition were sacrificed. Sorcerers, wizards, and alchemists met with unpleasant fates, finding themselves banished from the kingdom, or imprisoned, or worse. This sudden change spawned a backlash among the nobility and aristocrats, driving many to embrace the dark arts. These arts flourished away from the eyes of authority.

    Clandestine meetings of secret societies dedicated to the occult held the Black Sabbath…

    Why your character is interested in magical arts:
    Bio:
    Any Extra Info.:


    Races
    Demons: Demons are very powerful magical creatures that were once originally human, though, through centuries of perverted transformations and by delving too far into banned arts the demon has been created as an entity no longer recognizable as anything related to humans. They are not—I repeat, they are not—the stuff of biblical stories and have NO relation to anything biblical or dangerous in any way relating to biblical stories. The average lifespan of a demon is close to half of a normal human, the magical power raving inside eventually consumes their being. Demons specialize in the darker, forbidden side to the arts.

    Humans: Of the three races of Hardland, Humans are the weakest in magical power, but they live the longest and are of a cunning, constantly evolving mind. Humans are able to work each field of magic, restricted and otherwise forbidden easily and equally, though not nearly as those that specialize in such arts like the demons with forbidden arts or the angels with the holy side. Humans live approximately 75 years of age.

    Angels: Angels are also very powerful creatures also once known as human, but, like the demons, they too thrived in magical communities. But unlike the demons, angels sought out purity in their work and worked with the more accepted side to the arts such as healing, barrier casting, holy attacks, etcetera.


    Magical Prowess’s

    Sorcery: The study of Nature, sorcery, like the other two magical branches, require two things in order to cast their spells. One is the knowledge, the level of experience required through rigorous learning to cast the spell; this is the same for all branches of magic. The second requirement depends on the environment and what it supplies. One cannot cast a fire attack if all around the user is ice. Knowledge of the periodic table of elements is helpful, but not required.

    Witchcraft: The second branch of magic is the calling forth of ancient deities known only as gods, goddesses, and demi-gods. Each god has a limit to their power, except for the Five True Gods of each of the five elements (Fire, Water, Earth, Holy, and Dark) -+ See Below for the full List of Gods and the Five True Gods the rule everything +-

    To call forth a magical deity to attack through you in either a physical avatar-like state or with an abstract form of attack like a kamehameha attack from DBZ a chant is used; it is only natural that the stronger the deity, the longer the each chant is spoken. And the weaker the spell and deity, the shorter the chant. Henceforth the stronger the deity the longer the chant goes into other posts. The max posts that a chant can go through is four, with the caster in a very vulnerable state. Here is an example of a chant that can be used:

    Darkness beyond the twilight,
    Crimson beyond blood that flows,
    Buried in the flow of time.
    In thy great name,
    I pledge myself to darkness.
    Those fools who rise up to oppose us
    Shall be destroyed by the power
    That you and I possess.
    DRAGON SLAVE!

    In addition to deities, those of the witchcraft cult have scrolls for an instant spell. Though these spells are FAR weaker than their deity counterpart, they are very helpful in a pinch.

    Alchemy: This branch of magic uses the basic rule of equality: Give exactly what you take. If you fail to give exactly the same amount that you take of any substance than you shall pay a terrible price, depending on the Alchemy done and on the skill level of the user. Just think Full Metal Alchemist for this branch.

    I need at least 5 players to say they will commit themselves to this for it to be approved. If you wish to be the first, than that means total would be 2, or 3 if Darkangel is able to. (including myself as one of the five).

    I am not sure about it, but i will think about it before any descision because i am already currently in with another story, but not sure if i am willing to continue with the story and also i may need some time to join because of the insufficient time for me to be actually online daily. So therefore keep me on the waiting before any actual approval, please?
