      Ataraxia's Pursuit

      Ataraxia's Pursuit



      “In the hour of adversity be not without hope, For crystal rain falls from black clouds..."

      Long ago, before man was created, there was an eternal struggle between the forces of light and dark. The Akh of light and dark were fierce in their battles, yet there was a stalemate between the two forces as one could never completely overpower the other. Their epic war waged on forever, causing rampant destruction and chaos to spread about the cosmos. The light wished to create, the dark wished to destroy. Then, one day, Tetu gave hidden knowledge to both sides, knowledge that could grant them the power to end the conflict once and for all. With this knowledge both sides began to trap their enemies and banish them to the mortal world. There they remained, hidden, locked away in large crystals for ages uncountable. In time the number of Akh in the heavens dwindled, and with their lack of number came the eventual loss of the esoteric knowledge of banishment. A pantheon was soon born, with gods that reigned over the elements, the sky, the earth, the sea, the underworld, life, death and beyond. Some created men, and here we are to tell the story of our creation. We, the Banu Ka'b, are descendants of many great men who came with their women, children, and herds to the desert, to make a living where no other men can...where the Akh are sealed away and cast their shadows upon our world...

      ~Excerpt from the "Banu Ka'b Book of Legends"
      Ataraxia's Pursuit is a surreal and spiritual roleplay that takes place in the deserts of a strange world, ruled by beings known as the Akh, who have sealed many of their own kind off eons ago to end a divine war and create cosmic balance. Your tale will be that of individuals who live normal lives, lives that seemingly take place in this world, but are abruptly changed when they awaken and find themselves in a massive crystal in the middle of a potentially infinite desert. You know nothing of your true origin, so you seek out others for help and answers to your growing questions.

      Character Creation Format

      Name: Obvious. Must be real-world, though.
      Gender: Obvious.
      Age: Obvious.
      Appearance: Describe the physical appearance they had when they were in our world. Pictures are acceptable.
      Personality: Describe the way they think as a person.
      History: Describe their life before they were awakened to this new world.
      Powers: Each Akh possesses a supernatural ability. Below is a list (sorry Sindred! D=) of abilities that you can choose one for your character to possess. However, no character will know of their true abilities until a specified moment in the future.

      Spoiler for Powers:


      If you wish to have any specific information kept secret from the other players but not from me for the purpose of roleplaying, feel free to PM me. I will read through them and take them into consideration. Also, the first chapter does not begin until we have four members.

      You play as the Akh. The Akh is a person, not a thing. It is a person that possesses the power, not the power itself.

      Anyway, working on first chapter.

      Well thinking more along the lines of transforming into other people. But I can change it. Just didn't think like burn attack lol or hydro pump would go well with my character. :/ I like ones with faults, anyway.

      I'd say 8 is a good character limit for now. You can join. Thought that means the chapter will be tomorrow. Ouchies.

      Grod: Doesn't matter whichever one you're going for. You can do both. 8D

      Hm. The more thoughts you put in my mind, the more I'm tempted to fulfill the prophecy.
