In the world of Xenelle, there is the Forest of Change, shaped by the Gods, filled with dangerous magic and otherworldly creatures. Aside from the Forest, there is the Settlement, where humans thrive under the govern of the High Ones. The Settlement is ringed by the Wall, a ring of fifty-foot-tall and five-foot-
thick adamantine material. The only opening is a gate with a total of a dozen locks, one key belonging to each of the High Ones.
At the age of ten, every child is given a test by the High Ones, separately and privately. Those who fail are thrown beyond the Wall into the formidable Forest.
Or rather, those who pass with flying colors.
The High Ones don't want to be overthrown. Their solution is to eliminate all the possibilities.
And now you are one of us: one of the Eliminated.
HI! So this RPG idea has been in the back of my head for months now, so I decided to get it done with. And with so much time, I've really developed the world of it. I might write a narrative. Here's some extra info:
-There is a religion that everyone believes in, with three gods-- Aithene Flame-Caller, Terris Earth-Shaker, and Luxe Light-Weaver-- and five goddesses, Zyphirre Wind-Singer, Lynne Tide-Bringer, Chaaya Shadow-Binder and Evyka Life-Keeper, the Queen of Gods.
-The Forest is feared because it holds magic. Nobody has magic within them, but the forest has magic and magical creatures, some dangerous and some docile.
-The word "sparks" is used in the context of "darn it" in this world. It can be used in other forms, such as "sparking" or "spark" singular. Of course, should there be real sparks, it's not a cuss word. Yes, I got it from the Reckoner series. I can't think of any other word sounding good enough, okay?
-Some of the Eliminated are Whisperers, able to calm or tame wild creatures in the Forest. Some are Benders, those who are able to warp the magic around them ever so slightly to their will-- nothing drastic. Others more may be Healers, who use the wide array of plants in the forest to heal and to make tonics. The rest may be normal with their own talents.
-Normal RP rules: be kind, appropriate, and not overpowered, no powerplaying, etc.
-Keep your character appearance realistic, unless it's been warped somehow by magic
-The Forest is endless, so no escaping it
-You can make characters that passed the test or didn't pass
-Age must be 10+
-Nobody can control magic
-Technology is medieval. No electricity.
-Codeword: "sparks" or "sparking" or "spark"
-Everyone believes in the religion, though not everyone's, you know, fully involved in it
-Yes, there are people in the settlement that commune with people outside of the wall
-Don't traipse back and forth in and out of the wall, it's very difficult to go across
-The test can't be rigged. And everyone takes the test, including your character
-Your character is normal, Whisperer, Healer, or Striker. No blends. The non-eliminated are normal
-The test is different for everyone but really difficult, and consists of physical and answering questions challenges
