(A Weekend Only Fantasy Game)
This game is meant for play on the weekends. If you are not available during the weekend, please do not apply for this game.
Four Guardians exist to protect the world of Tetravier from harm. Each Guardian is responsible for a section of the world.
In the North is the Black Warrior.
To the West is the Tiger.
The Great Dragon dwells in the East.
The Phoenix rules in the South.
Each of these Guardians have a human form and Guardian form.
All of these Guardians, except for Chomolungma, the Great Dragon, exist in a cycle of life, death and rebirth. But recently, the Phoenix was killed and his reincarnation cannot be found. The world is in jeopardy unless the reborn Phoenix can be found and balance can be restored.
At the beginning of the story, you have come to the Great Library in Xangdi-Lat, home of Chomolungma, Guardian of the East. (Please include in your backstory the reason why you are at the library). If Cho finds you worthy, she will ask you to help her find her lost brother.
Sections of the Known World:
Firaduil: to the North. Icy and cold, the homeland of ice elves and dwarves.
Solovas: to the West. Temperate climate, home of mostly humans of all races and classes.
Phirmusol: to the South. Hot and formed of obsidian, Phirumsol is home to humans who have become very heat-tolerant.
The Numidian Steppes: Also to the South. They border Phirumsol. A desert land, home to a nomadic people.
Xangdi-Lat: Hidden in the highest mountains, Xangdi-lat is almost legendary. It can be reached only with great effort. Due to its altitude, the mountains are often covered with snow and ice. The valleys, however, are temperate. (Based very loosely on Tibet and Shangri-La from the James Hilton novel).
Ringence: Ringence borders Xangdi-lat. Home to humans and some kitsune. Loosely based on medieval Japan. Other mythical Japanese creatures (such as Tengu, are welcome).
The Great Library: Home to Madame Cho (Chomolungma), the Great Library is housed in the tallest mountain in Xangdi-Lat (also called Chomolungma, though it is not known which came first, the dragon or the mountain). Madame Cho is served by a monastery of monks who live in and care for the Great Library.
