Got any questions, ask I'll do my best to answer. Post CS here too.


Once Upon Atyme: Dorothy

Once upon a Time. A phrase you may have heard throughout your life. The truth is, the phrase should be, Once Upon Atyme, for Atyme is the name of this world in which we shall set the stage.
Atyme is a place, divided into 4 continents, 3 on land, 1 in the sky. In this magical place, many strange beings live together. However, many are also at war with each other currently, and many try to find a way to survive. Every being on this planet knows of, and can use, a power known as Magic, which is divided into many different categories.
Magic, is the use of one's own Mana to create or manipulate other things. The Types of Known magic are Fire, Ice, Wind, Earth, Wood, Metal, Water, Electric, Shadow, and Light. Some have found ways to use the different categories on creative ways, such as re-equipping themselves with other armor or weapons in the middle of battle, or making shadows extend so the sun doesn't harm them.
The story here which is to be told, is of Dorothy, a girl from our world, with a gift that she has yet to realize. Her story begins in Kansas. Where will yours be, and what part will you play in Uni
(Note: There will be 3 others and a final part. I may continue if this goes over well.)

Mana: The energy that gives life to all, and goes throughout the world of Atyme. Mana is godly residue, left behind by the Gods of Creation, Land, Order, Chaos, Sea, Sky, and Nature. Every being has their own Mana which replinishes with time. Mana runs throughout the world in veins, and replinshes itself, though the means to this is still under debate, it is thought that when one dies, their mana returns to the planet, and they live on in the mana until someone else is born. Many cities are actually built around the ends of certain veins, known as Mana Geysers, where actual physically seen mana flows up into the air and back into the ground. Some believe that Mana Geysers actually lead to the realm of the gods, though none have returned to tell the tale.

Magic:
Magic is the ability to control, create, and manipulate the elements around oneself. Nearly everyone in the whole of Atyme should know a basic spell of one type, especially adventurers. A well known spell around the world is the Yellow Brick Road, which creates a path of yellow light that leads one to where they want to go.

Technology:
Technology is not high in this world, cannons, clocks, and carriage are the main means of technology here. However a smart human recently developed Revolver Handguns, and has spread the making of these to a very small few. He has kept secret his techniques as he has created for himself a magazine fed handgun. He makes a living developing watches for people.

The Continents of the planet are Ahz the floating Continent, Unterland the reverse continent, Grimoire the Dark Continent, and Nefarland the Warring continent.

Continents:
Ahz: A large floating Continent, invisible to outsiders, and seen only through a rainbow. Some say the only way to it is over these rainbows, which are actually created from the mana dropping from the bottom of the continent. While large, and very diverse, Ahz has been under the rule of witches of late, both good and bad, and the Wizard, a human who was said to have come through a Mana Geyser in a hot air balloon, is the only source of order on the continent, until the lost princess is refound.

Grimoire: A land of Darkness. Those who live their seem to have a care free sense about their lives their, and must battle to live every day. Grimoire was a land first founded by two brothers, who after settling, had trouble determining who should rule. The two battled and left the continent scarred and desolate. Now clouds cover it, even during the day, and many things prowl to try and eat each other.

Unterland: Another of the many places currently in a warring state. The LeCard Family and the Chezz family, two royal households, once ruled this land together, but after the King Diamond died from an unknown disease, the Queen Heart has set on a warpath to destroy the Chezz family. Here is where it is said, the most fascinating, and yet terrifying, creatures beyond imaging exist, as every day seems to be a struggle to survive. Unterland is known as the reverse continent due to the large plant life, with grass growing at 6 feet and up.

Nefarland: The land leading to the underworld. Nefarland is one of the few continents that has every race living on it. Almost all races here have been at war for supremacy, and recently, the Demon King was killed by Human heroes, wielding a magical sword. This has reflung the continent into war, as the Demon King Jabuul, had managed to calm much of the fighting. Now Nefarland is filled with Mercenaries and Mercenary Groups that work for the highest bidder to further their reach into Nefarland. Supposedly, this continent was the birth place of the Fairies, and they were chased away by pirates, which still lurk the seas and shores.

Races:
Angels: A slowly disappearing race of Atyme, born with large elegant snow white wings. The Angels are known as the messengers of the gods, and have a large amount of power. However, the reason the angels have been disappearing is because of certain people capturing and siphoning their power. Angels have many appearances as well.

Cherubim: An angel that stays in the form of a child. They are the most jovial of the angels.

Celestial: An Angel that looks like a regular person with wings, they age very slowly as well, at 1 year for every 100 human years.

Seraph: The most rare of all Angels, and the most powerful. They have 7 wings, and are so powerful, they usually reside in the clouds so as to not cause any problems on Atyme.

Animals: A race of Atyme made of many kinds of animals. They range from talking animals, to full sized anthropomorphic animals, to half animal half humans. Among half animals terms such as mermaids are used to define the type of animal they are.

Animalan: Simply, Talking Animals.

Victians: anthropomorphic animals, that have a strange problem of saying the sound they normally make at the end of their sentences.

Immundus: A half breed, half human, half Animal. This encompasses many other races as well, such as Nekomata demons.

Demons Demons are an old race of Atyme. They have usually darker skin and pointed ears. Demons encompass many different kinds though. When a demon becomes powerful enough, they grow horns, and the horns continue to grow as they gain power. The king of all Demons has horns at the length of 2 ft from the temple.

Succubi/Incubi: One of the most well known types of demons, they have tiny bat like wings on their back, and small pointed tails. These demons age slowly at a rate of 1 year every 100 human years.

Elemental: A demon who's skin is colored similar to whatever element they are born with. These demons are significantly younger, than most, only living twice the age of a normal human.

Death: A demon whose duty is to lead the dead to their resting place. Most wear masks resembling a skull, so as not to attach a face to the death of a being, though some choose otherwise. They also have a lantern that comes from their coats, only able to be seen by those who will die soon.

Drakens: Though not an actual demon subrace, they live among them, and are seen as demons as well. They are always in the form of a humanoid demon, with pointy ears. When they reach the end of their life, or at their own accord, they will become a Dragon. However, they lose all semblance of their former selves, though on rare occasions, the Draken has transformed back, because of a loved one, or sheer will.

Humna: The most human of the Demon race, the only difference is their pointed ears, and the strange color of their hair, ranging from purple to blue to green to pink.

Elves: Though by name most would think of the Sylvan Elves, but actually the Elves encompass a fair few kinds of Elves. The Dwarves, The Forest Elves, The Cave Elves, The Plains Elves, and the River Elves.

Dwarves: A short Hearty race of Elves that make their living from mining and developing technology with the ores that they have found.

Forest Elves: A very friendly Elf Race, they seem to live with the forest around them, and it is seldom heard of one leaving the forest. Some say that the Elves are bonded to a specific tree, and if it dies, they die. These Elves also have the ability to speak with animals.

Cave Elves: A pale elf race that have learned to handle spiders to create excellent clothing, which they export from their caves. They are brilliant weavers, and some can even communicate with spiders.

Plains Elves: The most unfriendly of the Elves. They tend to live in nomadic tribes, and hunt animals on the plains, but use every part of the animal killed. They are amazing at camouflage spells.

River Elves: An amphibious race of Elves that take to water as easily as fish. They are amazing craftsmen, and fishermen.

Fairies: A smaller race with the ability to fly. They have a natural aptitude with magic as well, allowing most to go on journeys without too much worry or care. The Fairy Race encompasses a few kind though.

Caits: A cat-like race with an aptitude for wind magic. They have ears, tails, nose, and paws like cats, and are very good safety precautions, keeping shiny objects safe for you, at the right price. Some train to be beast tamers and use them as mounts.

Gnomes: The largest of the Fairies, and excellent makers of statues. They have an aptitude for Earth Magic, as well as burrowing, and gardening. Some train to be herbalists, and doctors. When enraged they can become huge, even for Humans. Eggs are like poison to a Gnome and will be avoided like a plague.

Imps: Fairies with an aptitude for Shadow Magic, and have the ability to see in the dark. They are mischievous, and playful. Most become thieves, snatching wallets from unsuspecting travelers.

Leprechaun: a fairy race granted with the gift of luck, and Plant Magic. They are a pugnacious species of fairy, and will brawl, but if someone finds there stache of money, they will be obedient and subservient until they can take it back. They are also very good blacksmiths, and have mechanical wings.

Pucca: A Rabbit like race of Fairy, with ears, tail, and leg muscles of a rabbit. They are skilled musicians, using music as magic in battle. They also have the ability to be invisible for 1 minute every hour. They can even shapeshift into whatever they want, however, their size stays the same.

Salamander: The strongest fairy race physically, with an affinity for fire. They have the ability to turn into a fire breathing lizard, about their size, for an hour. After that time, they must rest for a day, or become extremely tired. They can also breathe fire, and have lizard like claws and tails.

Spriggans: A fairy race with an affinity for Illusion magic. They are also well known treasure hunters. Spriggans are also sometimes known as channelings, as some have learned to use their illusion magic so well that they can become the thing they are pretending to be. Spriggans are also very good Actors.
Miu

Sylphs: The fastest of the fairy race, and attuned to wind magic. The sylphs are also gifted healers.

Undine: An aquatic Fairy Race, that is skilled with water and healing magic. They also have the ability to move in water as if they were flying, and breath underwater.

Golem: a false being created, usually, through magic. Most are a being made to protect a house, or be a servant.

Homunculus: A false human, made of metal and to look like a person, but is totally subservient. However, if their master releases them, they will live as if they were a normal person, not knowing of their previous time.

Clock Work: metal golems that serve a kingdom. They are made to protect a castle gate, or smaller ones are made to send messages. To operate, they must be wound with a key.

Material: a living pile of materials. They are very quiet, and usually stationary. They can grow or shrink with more material. The material may be anything, from wood, to snow, to even bones.

Humans: The Youngest of all the races in Atyme,as well as the shortest lived. However, despite this humans seem very resourceful,using whatever they can find, including magic, and technology. Recently, a brilliant human learned how to create Hand Guns, but has kept it a secret to himself,and a few others. Though humans are normal now, most other races see them as strange lesser beings.

Munchkins: the only difference between these and regular humans is that they are like a chibi human.

Winkies: Yellow Skinned humans that are skilled golem creators and repairers.

Inanimates: Inanimates are a race of anthropomorphic inanimate objects given life through the mana running throughout Atyme. They can range from porcelain dolls, to scarecrows, to a chest of drawers.

Mythics: A broad term for creatures that are human like, such as werewolves and goblins. Mythics are known for thinking themselves far superior compared to humans, usually.

Werebeasts: a race of humans with animal like features. They can become a humanoid form of the beast that they choose, but only for a limited time, dependent on their strength. If they go longer than they should, they begin to become that beast, and it gets harder and harder to get out of the transformation, until they stay as that creature, without any memory of their old selves.

Goblins: a race that comes in three kinds. The pig like Orcs, the dimwitted yet strong Goblins, and the giant lumbering Trolls. It is not unusual for these creatures to adopt children of different races after an attack on a town.

Slimes: a gelatinous mass that, after consuming a creature, obtains its memories and form, but as a gelatinous, single colored version of itself. However, after having one creatures inside them, they can form weapons from their hands and harden themselves.

Zombie: a basic, slow, rotting corpse. By consuming more living beings it can obtain more power. The strongest of all the Zombies, a once living music legend, Zaxel, can use his own bones as a weapon, harden them, and even conjure bolts of lightning through his fingers.

Skeleton: a living skeleton. They can take themselves apart, but as long as the skull still remains intact, they can still reanimated after redeath.

Vampire: An undead that can transform into a bat. They have an allergic reaction to UV rays, causing them to itch uncontrollably. However, clothing, or a large hat, are sufficient defense against the rays.

CS:
Name: Tomi Bombadil
Race: Cherubim
Age: 300
Gender: Male
Job: Actor/Script Writer/Ex-Captain of the Guard/ Political Vassal/Bodyguard
Magic: Light

Appearance: Tomi is definitely someone you can pick out of a crowd, not just because he’s one of a rare race but because his overall physical appearance is nothing but lavish and very eccentric. Firstly he stands at a very small 3ft foot and weighs roughly 60lbs which means he’s pretty lithe even for his small frame. Tomi could be mistaken for a small child if it wasn’t for his attire and the fact that his hair is a cotton candy pink and the wings sticking out his back. His wings are similar to a flamingo with its design having a pink top layer with a bottom strip of silver feathers. His hair is about shoulder length but is always tied back into a ponytail with a silver hair bobble; this is partially matched by the pair of rose tinted spectacles he wears that have a silver rim, which suits the rest of his outfit’s theme.

Going down Tomi’s outfit, the cherubim wears: A patchwork multi-coloured trench coat that is covered in all colours of the rainbow, as well as the collar being overly large and turned up creating almost a cone around his head. This is coupled with a simpler white button up shirt that is visible underneath, cotton candy coloured cravat that has a silver broach in the shape of an arrowed pierced heart and a silver trimmed cotton candy pink waistcoat. In terms of his lower half he’s a little less extravagant in that he wears a pair of black leather trousers, with a black belt that has a silver arrow shaped buckle, and a pair of black boots that have a pair of Silver coloured leather boot covers over them.

Weapon: Attached to Tomi’s belt at his hip is a curved thin bladed cutlass, which has a Black Hand guard that has a silver arrow pierced heart emblazoned upon it.

History: Tom was born to a director of a father and a socialite of a mother and definitely had a silver spoon in his mouth for most of his youth while in Ahz, trained by a personal tutor in various subjects but found that like his father the stage is where he belonged and was best at. He spent most of his teens and twenties on stage, tech work, costume, lighting and acting, when it came to theatre you name it Tomi had done it. He however soon surpassed his father in terms of fame in Ahz when he wrote and created his first piece of theatre ‘Waiting for Toto’ which got great commercial success, this was followed by a string of great written pieces such as ‘Taming of the Shroom’ and ‘Pirates in their Pants’, the latter being his most challenging and prolific piece since he got actual pirates of Nefarland to sing and dance within a month’s worth of rehearsals, Tomi soon became one of the wealthiest people and also well liked people in Ahz.

However Tomi was unfulfilled in his life after having writers block for many a year, so he decided to join the military. He knew his life would be on the line most of the time since the other continents always wanted to obtain Ahz for their own. He did very well on the battlefield; his small size meant that the enemy barely looked him in the eye which was their misfortune when Tomi would run them through. He was also good at scouting with him being able to scout out the field and report back without being seen, also his time in the theatre and directing people meant that his tactical mind was as sharp as most of the generals giving the orders. He got quite a few medals in this time but he never wears them since he really does not like bloodshed, he soon got marginally out of the battlefield when he got offered a guard role within Ahz. This didn’t last long, he wasn’t bad, quite the opposite, his great work and war experience got him the highest guard job in Ahz as captain of the guard.

During this time he got close to the Ahz royal family, since it was his main job to protect them. And when the King/Queen of the time offered him the position of Political Vassal to the throne Tomi snapped it up as it meant he could put all his experience into one pot, since the job combined his actor silver tongue, his tactical and managerial expertise in helping the kingdom and where the funds should be used and his war experience meant he knew the kingdom’s enemies on a personal level. His most recent happenings have found him without a king, and missing a princess which has left him more than a little hurt since he’s never been too fond of witches as they tend to be quite tricksy and more than a little cunning. If any hope was to happen to Ahz then Tomi wants to be there to protect to restore balance in his beloved homeland.

CS: Completed
Name: Minturn Peck aka Mint
Race: Pixie
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Jobs: Adventurer/Treasure Hunter/Doctor/Guide
Magic: Light
Weapon: A large threading needle, 6 inches(15 centimeters) long. One end sharp and pointy, the other has a small hole, just big enough for both his hands to firmly hold it.

Appearance: 10 inches(25 cm) tall and skinny. He wears a simple white robe, which drapes down to his feet. Holes in the back of the robe allow his wings to poke through and spread. His own features are pale, yet bright due to the whiteness of his skin. A custom leather backpack allows his needle to be sheathed.

History: Mint has always been hyper. His family lived in Boq, a skyport city. He had head many stories from around the world, from many travelers. His parents also had their fair share of experience. His parents taught him many survival lessons as well as how to use Light magic to extend his skill set.

Being smaller than other travelers had its benefits. Easily being able to hide and catch rides were nothing for him. He had partnered with a handful of other travelers just to help satisfy his curiosity. Along his travels, he's picked up a few things. His needle is finely made, better than most needles. A funny Dwarf, with a strange hobby of making larger versions of small objects, made his needle. It's as strong as any sword. Mint's stature may prevent him from fighting creature of other shapes and sizes, but it's nice to have.

After returning from his last venture, his family seemed to have left home without any notification. Boq's reputation may have dropped since the witches arrived, but his family wouldn't just pull their roots out. Unsure about how he feels about their disappearance, he tries to move on with his adventures, hoping they'll return on their own.

Victians are actually rather common, though dieing, due to interracial interaction. They are seen in almost as high regard as Elves, but think of themselves as equals.

Immundus however are treated like mutts by all but most Victians and some humans.

Name: Emily A. Barnelle
Race: Human
Age: 10
Gender: Female
Job: N/A
Magic: N/A
Weapon: N/A

Appearance: A small waif of a girl with shoulder-length black hair, pale skin and bright blue eyes. She wears the tattered remains of a Victorian-era dress, coloured faded purple and dirty white, and wears a ratty old bow to tie her hair into a ponytail. She seems like a pretty, friendly child who been through more than anyone at her age should; as is evident through the slightly distant, eerie look in her ghostly blue eyes.

History: A victim of war. Emily’s family was in the wrong place at the wrong time and fell prey to the ravages of a skirmish their side lost. Their town was burned to the ground but Emily, who was always good at hide and seek, had managed to hide in her father's secret hideaway in the woods. When she returned to her home, everything she knew and loved was gone. That broke something inside her.

She cried for days and slowly weakened. The buzzards were circling when the thundering footfalls grew closer. An iron hand was offered to her. She looked up and saw the gleaming armour of her savior, a brave knight of the realm!

Now together with her brave knight, Emily seeks out those in trouble to guide them to the happy ending she was denied.

Name: Model Seven (Sir Knight)
Race: Clockwork Golem (Corpse Collector)
Age: Exceptionally old
Gender: N/A
Job: Bodyguard
Magic: Metal
Weapon: Body

Appearance: A towering being wrought from sheets of thick metal into a mockery of the human shape. Hunched, with broad shoulders and a colossal, broken, skull like helmet and riddled with foot-and-a-half long iron spikes, this lumbering behemoth looks to have wandered out of some twisted nightmare. Heavy bolts, pulsating grey tubes and plumes of steam comprise the beast's surprisingly quiet mechanisms. Its arms are disproportionately long for its thick, stout body and its legs disproportionately short, giving it a strange waddle but a scarily long reach; its enormous hands fitted with four powerful fingers meant for gripping and lifting.

History: The corpse collector golems were created in times of great conflict to clear the battlefields of bodies by lifting them and running them through on their giant spikes to then be carried off for burning to prevent disease and pests from gathering after a battle. Though they were created to aid both sides in a conflict by lessening attrition and the chance of outbreaks, their mindless nature made them easy targets for salvage. Thus countless corpse collectors fell.

The infuriated creators soon produced models with stronger material to withstand the attacks of desperate soldiers. But like towering elephants falling to a pack of wild dogs one by one they still fell. Model after model was sent out with new improvements. The company producing these golems soon went under and the lead engineer sent the last golem, the prototype model 7 out rather than letting it rust and rot in some collector's gallery.

The 7th model corpse collector was infused with an animal-like cunning that made it so fantastically dangerous to approach that it was simply left alone, finally fulfilling its creator's wishes. Time went by, the rise and fall of civilizations having little affect on golem. There were always wars, always bloody conflicts and thus there were always corpses for it to collect.

It seemed like the golem would be lost to legend until one day it came upon a little orphan crying outside a burning house ...

Hmm...I do like the idea, and I don't usually do this, but I will let you control two characters, so Model 7 and Emily are accepted. I like the idea of your corpse collectors.

Regarding seraph angels, where's the 7th wing? Is it off one to a certain side or does in point straight from the back?
Why not?

The 7th wing actually sticks straight up, it acts as a kind of rudder/steering mechanism when flying, or a makeshift umbrella.

Still deciding which race I want to play, but I have a few questions. Are Caits only capable of flight via mounts? Or can flight be attained through their manipulation of wind magic?

Also, I was wondering what the spriggan race looks like here? The only spriggans I'm familiar with are the spriggans in Final Fantasy (this) and SAO   (looks pretty human except for having elvish ears, darker skin tone and darker wings)   . I looked it up and noticed that there are also spriggans in Skyrim (this).

Also, are sylphs similar in appearance to the typical fairy (small, human appearance, wings)?

New at this, so sorry for so many questions ^_^;

Caits can fly without mounts, but only in short bursts of 3 minutes. Flying to them is like a steady Run for a normal person. Unless they have really exercised those wings, they'll only fly for a short while. With wind magic they (and all flying races) can attain a quickened flight, an extended glide, or even a jet stream effect.

Spriggans are more of the SAO ones, but have more Wood colors to their hair and skin.

Sylphs are the more usual small human with wings. They have fairer skin and lighter hair though.

Accepted. The witch's have ruled for 14 years by the way.

If no one else submits there character by...let's say Friday, I'll start. Remember, I am willing to let people jump in later.
