Wolf's Rain - Extinction
has been posted! I thought about it long and hard, and decided not to exclude the hunt for Paradise. Instead, it's an option, just as /everything/ will be in this RP. It will be completely sandbox with every character able to free roam. The ending will be decided entirely upon each and every player's actions during the RP.
I'm very excited to get this thing up and running.
Interested? Here's a sneak peak!
When are we born? When do we die? Why are we born? Why do we die? The world has been destroyed and we've fallen countless times, always resurrecting from the ashes as Paradise. It has happened before, and it will happen again. An endless cycle of life and death. The world is a Paradise that was opened by someone, but this era too is almost at an end. We have acquired the means to exceed our natural span of life, never suspecting that the world itself was finalized in its existence. This knowledge has left me in despair, my fate has fallen and scattered like the petals of a dying flower, like the blast from a sand storm it has been warn down and weathered away. As if to be purified, the world will be encased in ice so that it can return to the beginning once more. Paradise is a world that is opened by someone...
They say there's no such place as Paradise. Even if you search to the ends of the Earth, there's nothing there. No matter how far you walk, it's always the same road. It just goes on and on. But, in spite of that... Why am I so driven to find it? A voice calls to me... It says, "Search for Paradise."
According to an old legend, when the end of the world comes, a place known as Paradise will appear. However, only wolves will know how to find it. Although wolves are believed to have been hunted to extinction nearly two hundred years ago, they still exist, surviving by taking human forms.
However, this lifetime has taken a turn for the worse.
The existence of wolves has become common knowledge, and some Humans won't stop until they're all extinct. While these wolves maintain secrecy in Human disguise, they find themselves searching... For Paradise.
Paradise is said to be a perfect world, though no one has seen it with their own eyes. It is said that only wolves can enter its glorious world, though only when led there by a lunar flower.
Humans, terrified of wolves, have become suspicious of even each other, and chaos has ensued in the past few months. Some try to go about their lives in fear, some actively hunt the wolves... Yet some want to see them live.
A Pagan-like religion has formed under the Lunar Tome, or "Book of the Moon". This book is banned and those who own it are executed, their book burned. However, some Humans still read from it in secrecy, and believe in its words. The Book of the Moon explains about Wolves, Lunar Flowers, Paradise, and much more, but one detail stands out among all else: the book states that wolves are divine creatures, and that Humans are descendants of wolves.
These Tome-worshiping Humans call themselves Pagans, and would prefer to see the wolves left alone, or even assisted in their journey, rather than slaughtered. However, they must keep their beliefs secret, or else they become outcasts, get executed, or both.
In very rare instances, some Humans have gone hunting for wolves, using their rifles to end every one they can find.
Meanwhile, the wolves run free, though cautious and hidden. Most search for Paradise, Lunar Flowers, or simply a place to live in peace. Some wish to live alongside Humans, while some wish to never see another. Wolves most often live in the wilderness outside of Human towns, travelling often so that they aren't found. However, some wolves have found residence in old abandoned buildings or towns, among other things. Some travel in packs, some are lone wolves. On rare occasion, some Wolves have lived their lives like dogs, fooling everyone including their owners. Most wolves mock these 'pets', and disagree with the idea entirely.
Nobles are alien beings that look strikingly similar to Humans (they are nearly impossible to differentiate if you exclude technology and clothing) and live in airships that are clearly far more advanced than Human tech. Nobles make little to no contact with Humans due to a lack of interest. Few Nobles are also searching for Paradise, and plan to find it before the wolves do.
