Fire Emblem: Re-Awakening
Robin and Chrom’s descendants continue to rule over Ylisse today. While Chrom originally refused the title of Exalt out of respect to his sister, his kin have since reclaimed that title, having forgotten the original reason to forsake it. The title is currently held by Exalt Nadforth, and first in line to the throne is Prince Nokam. Ylisse remains a prosperous nation, far more so than its neighbor’s. This is partly due to the renewing of Naga’s power, and through the completed Fire Emblem making its home there. Regna-Ferox was unified into a single state due to two of its Warlords getting married. Plegia remains much as it was at the time of Chrom, though it has much less Grimleal influence in modern times. The Valmese Empire continues to rule over a large majority of the western continent, but numerous small states have peacefully broken away. The Manakete and Taguel races have been restored, though both races are still small in number.
A few months before this RP starts, The Exalt and his queen were assassinated. There was no evidence as to who committed the murder, but it left the Exaltship in the hands of Prince Nokam. Claiming that the Prince was too inexperienced with statecraft, the control of Ylisse has passed to the Council of Advisors, who is claiming stewardship until they deem Prince Nokam worthy. They entrusted him with his father’s Falchion as a gift of friendship, though it has long since lost its Exalted Falchion status. He is one of the blade’s chosen, and he has wasted no time in training with his new blade. He renewed the Shepherds, having read about Chrom’s band in a history book. They mostly serve as his militia, and also allow him to find those best suited for high-ranking positions in his army.
Unbeknownst to Nokam and his advisors, the assassination was actually organized by the remnant of the Grimleal. Their leader, Farden, has drawn close to a method to revive Grima, and decided that he should remove the king, who is a very powerful swordsman who could pose a threat to the new order he is trying to establish.
You are a new recruit for the Shepherds. You may be a citizen of whichever continent you choose, but must currently live near or in Ylisse. You can be a member of the new Shepherds, or you can be a neutral mercenary working for Ylisse. You can also be an “Enemy” unit, but you must join up rather quickly. This is mostly to avoid Characters clashing and also to make it easier on me.
You can pick to be one of these basic classes to begin (advancement to be made at the sole discretion of the GM.) If you have another idea for a class, don’t hesitate to tell me. I’ll determine if you can use that class.
Barbarian: A lightly armored, axe-wielding thug.
Fighter: A scrapper with high strength. Wields axes.
Mercenary: A well-rounded professional that wears medium armor and wields swords.
