Tales of Dreams
4000 years ago:
The world of Yune, a somewhat peaceful land that has flourished ever since the discovery of Real, a stone that acts as a natural energy source. The first vein of Real was founded by Shine Luster. He named the stone Real because it would make real his ambitions and visions for what the world should be. Technology built around utilizing the mystical stone that eradiated pure energy was rapidly created. It gave unto the people the conveniences of the modern world. Yet many problems arisen, many countries fought over Real veins all over the world leading to global war and calamity. The mining of Real was took toll on the world destroying the environment.
As the land deteriorated and the wars continued a vile substance appeared in the world. “Aurora” is what these chromatic rainbow colored curtains of death were soon called. If inhaled one would mutate into horrible monsters that have been known as Nightmares losing their sense of self and craving blood. When enough aurora clouds came together it would create the most powerful being ever known, Anomaly. They held power incomparable. Wars ceased and the remaining mortals lived in fear of the Aurora and the horrible creatures it created.
All seemed hopeless until the Saint Astra, a young human woman harnessed the power of Real combined with the elemental spirits, and used it create a new world at the cost of her life. A smaller planet came into being and all the remaining living beings used the remaining power of Real to transport themselves to the new world. Aurora surrounded the planet of Yune turning it into a lifeless wasteland. Despite the efforts of Astra it wasn’t enough to break free from the Aurora. A giant black chain sprung forth and attached itself to the new world and would forever serve as a symbol that there can be no escape from Aurora.
The world of Astra was a lively world where many countries have lived in peace with each other. This world is comprised entirely of humans the only race who survived the previous world’s destruction. It is about 3/4s the size of Yune but it is separated a long distance away from Yune but is unable to fully escape the grasp of the chain. In the sky was the huge world of Yune that shined Aurora on the new planet. Astra was thankfully far enough away for the rays of aurora to not affect the inhabitants of the planet. Every month the sun would align perfectly with Yune and cause the Aurora to eradiate strong radiation on the world of Astra. It wasn’t harmful but it created lesser versions of anomalies, Viruses. Many different fighters from all over the world fight these Viruses to prevent the destruction of their world. Recently the attacks by the Aurora have gotten stronger and it’s only a matter of time before Astra will become like Yune. A worldwide search for the brightest minds and strongest fighters has started in an effort to get rid of Aurora once and for all. Thus the world-wide organization Vaccine was created. Will you join this group in an effort to save your world? Can you find the truth behind the devastation? Will there ever be true peace? Go forth without falter with the knowledge that your actions can either save the world or doom all life as you know it.

Above contains categories of skills you can use for you character.
There are 3 main types of Physical Artes
Base: The simplest type used by beginners
Master: An advanced type of attack used by those with considerable skill
Arcane: The most advanced type of skill created by combining two base artes together.

This page contains a list of already made classes with all the skills you need.
You start with the first two skills/spells that are base/novice level and unlock the rest upon progression of the plot.
Pure Physical: 20-22 skill max divided evenly between base, master, and arcane
Spell casters: 20-22 Spells evenly divided between novice intermediate and advanced.
Hybrid (aka Magic Knights): Use the magic knight class in the class page above as a base. If you want you can modify and replace any skill with one from the same type and tier of attack. Hybrid characters are weaker than those who are purely physical or magical but they have more variety in their attack style.
Everyone has one of these unique attacks. They are very powerful and only the most powerful fighters have access to this devastating attack. Once you start unlocking many of the advanced spells and arcane artes does the potential for attaining a mystic arte come into being. There are plenty of examples of these on YouTube but please make your own mystic arte.

Name: Fang Lotus
Fang’s body is pretty toned due to all the daily training he does but is not overly bulky or muscular. His normal outfit consists of a red shirt with a black jacket over it only buttoned down half way. Black jeans are worn on his legs and red sneakers for running and kicking. Fang has a dragon tattoo going down his right arm but it’s usually covered by his clothes. On his hands are two black gloves that cover his fists. The top part of the gloves has a metal covering for added damage when he punches.
Personality: When Fang fights he fights blindly with rage. He has no sense of strategy expect to go all out on the enemy despite the amount of energy it requires. Fang is quite energetic and is always eager to fight strong opponents to see how he stands. Outside of battle he usually acts like an excited little kid and he finds it hard to concentrate or pay attention. When things get serious he tries to keep calm and tries to lighten the situation. Fang isn’t very bright due to his upbringing as a country bumpkin and has a hard time with anything overly complicated. Deep down Fang is just a fun loving guy who wants to live his life to the fullest.
History: Fang was born to a poor family in the town of Anitta a farming village within the country of Leona. When he was younger he would always help his father work on the farm. As the eldest child in a family of eight children he had to act as both a role model. One day a wandering traveler came to the village. He had no place to stay so Fang’s family took him in. In exchange for having a place to stay he offered to teach his family and anyone else in the village about fighting and thus a fighting dojo was built in the town of Anitta. Fang was at the top of the class in the dojo due to his energy. After two years the strange wandering traveler left without a trace and Fang ended up taking over the dojo out of respect. His family fell on rough times when his father passed away due to illness. Fang had to close down the dojo to help with the farm work. The farm prospered by Fang felt very depressed about not being able to put the techniques he learned to good use. Many years passed but Fang still trained in secret to keep up his fighting ablitliy. After turning eighteen, a recruiter for Vaccine came to town searching for volunteers. Fang was the only one who wanted to volunteer but didn’t want to leave his family without money. The recruiter promised him that if he joined and was successful his family will receive a steady income. Fang agreed and said goodbye to his mother and his brothers and sisters as he headed for Cyanwell to join Vaccine.

1. Try to be as active as possible and write your posts to the best of your abilities.
2. If you are going away please notify everyone with a post in the OOC.
3. Fighting Rules: When you make an attack it is up to your opponent to decide if it hits or not and vice versa. Also do not spam your skills repeatedly. Skills take away your energy so the more you use the more tired you become. Take into account how strong your character is while fighting.
4. Romance is allowed, but please keep it PG-13, take it to the pms if you want to take a relationship further.
5. Cursing is allowed within reason, curse only when acceptable and don’t just drop F bombs on a whim.
6. Respect your fellow players. If you disagree with something a player does bring it up for discussion or pm the player and work it out amongst yourselves.
7. Have Fun!
