View Full Version : Endless Raid (PG-16)

November 29th, 2005, 7:01 PM
A yearning for the sky, a closeness to the sky. A world where some have obtained a mysterious power and have risen to the skies: Guardia, where there once was a legend. Deep in the horizon, surrounded by the distant clouds, a land of gold awaits. Pursuing their goals and dreams throughout the skies, a young group of human heroes and their partners will rise, unknowing of the role they will soon play in deciding the fate of Guardia.

What is Guardia?

Guardia is a world of magic and mystery; a world that has taken to the skies, and surprises await around every corner. Guardia is composed of the surface, which is the planets crust, and there are the floating islands. The floating islands are pieces of the crust that have broken off and have lifted into the sky. Almost all of Guardias population lives on these islands, which come in various shapes, sizes, and environments. The western part of Guardia is unexplored, and is rumored the Garden of Eden lies there.

As you can imagine, travel between islands is done via aircrafts, airships, and various other vehicles, while travel on the islands is done via car, walking, horse, ect.

There is also the threat of pirates and thieves in the sky, and various other secret organizations are present.

The Eden Raid & Sitting Raid

Eden Raid appear human, but are very far from it. Once an Eden Raid makes a pact with a human, it has the ability to React with that human, allowing it to become a weapon for that human. The human from then on gains the title of an Eden Raid Pleasure, or just Pleasure for short. You can determine whether someone is an Eden Raid or not by looking for an Erementar Gerad, which is a small gem attached to its body. Erementar Gerad come in many shapes and colours, and are the main source of an Eden Raids power. Since their powers are wanted throughout Guardia, and some would even go s far as to steal them, some prefer to cover and hide their Erementar Gerad.

An Eden Raid can not make a pact with more than one Pleasure at a time. Therefore, if someone was to steal an Eden Raid who already has a Pleasure, the thief would have to assassinate its Pleasure to be able to react with it.

When an Eden Raid and its Pleasure React, they basically become one; they can communicate mentally with one another, as well as vocally. The duo can cast spells and use abilities by singing while they are one, while the singing is really more of a chant in an ancient tongue. Some spells and abilities only require the Eden Raid to sing, while the stronger abilities require singing from both of them. Reacting uses a large amount of the Eden Raids energy, so use the ability sparingly.

A Sitting Raid is an artificial Eden Raid, so to speak. Basically, Sitting Raids are humans who have attached fake Erementar Gerads to their bodies. While they are just as powerful as Eden Raids, becoming a Sitting Raid is a life threatening risk and should not be attempted unless you know your body can handle it.

In a Nutshell

You are traveling Guardia for reasons of your own, when you come across Zion Island. You decide to stop off at that hotel for the night, where you meet up with the other RPers. That night, the hotel is assaulted by an unknown organization, and you, your Eden or Sitting Raid, along with the others must escape. However, this is only the start of your journey.

Rp sample:
Three years ago...

Ryan pocketed the silver bracelet, it would provide enough money for a week's worth of food. He opened the door a crack and peeked out at the street. Not seeing anyone, he slid outside.
"Hey, you, stop right there!" A shout from behind, he cursed and began to run away from the shouting.
"It's that sunburst kid!" A second shout from behind. Great, he thought, they've given me a title now. He turn the corner quickly and collided with a young boy. He tripped and skidded across the pavement, tearing the knees in his jeans, and skinning his right arm. He picked himself up from the ground, and grabbed the stunned boy.
"Just come with me, will you?"
Glancing behind him, Ryan saw an officer signalling for help. He took his bow from his back, and nocked an arrow. It planted itself in the officer's thigh, and he howled in pain.
"Now I'll be wanted for assault," Ryan muttered to himself. He pulled the boy with him, surprised how well the boy was doing after all the running. He turned another corner and dashed for the car he had stolen the other day. He opened the back door and shoved the boy in.
"Stay there, please don't make this difficult," He said to him.
Ryan hopped in the driver's seat, and jammed the key into the ignition. He slammed his foot down on the gas and sped away from the city...
Ten minutes later, he found himself seated face-to-face with the youth in a nearby forest.
"That could have been much better, or worse," He mused as he studied his new companion.
A rather skinny boy, about ten years old, with brown hair and blue eyes looked back at him.
"The name's Ryan, I guess I owe you an apology for ruining your day."
The boy hesitated, a look of uncertainty was in his eyes. Finally, he replied, "Umm... My name is Riyan..."
The boy -Riyan- had said his name strangly, Ryan didn't really care if the name was real or not.
"Alright, I'm in a hurry, I have to go now. Whatever you do, please don't tell anyone which direction I'm heading in." He said as he stood and stretched.
Riyan shook his head slightly. Then also stood and looked at the Ryan, then back at the road they had driven from at 80 miles-per-hour. He turned his head toward Ryan again and said simply.
"I won't, because I'm coming with you."
Ryan stared for a moment, then shrugged.
"Suit yourself."

[EDIT: I was being rushed by my bro yesterday, I'm just adding a few things I couldn't earlier.]

RP Sample:
Eleven years ago.

"Captain Longbow, I was expecting to find you hear."
Erin recognized that voice, it was the voice of Charles, his rival, his enemy, and, at some level his friend.
It was the voice of challenge.
"Captain Harwen, I was wondering when you'd find me." Erin returned, turning to look his fellow captain in the eye.
The man was looking good for his age, indeed he was 10 years younger than Erin, but if the two were viewed by an outsider, one might say that Charles was the younger.
"I came to give you a chance to reclaim your honor." Charles said, smiling.
"Oh? Pray forgive, but I don't remember loosing MY honor."
"You ran, didn't you?"
"Nay, I gave you your life, since I had beached your ship and claimed your goods, I had no need for anything else."
"Aye, so you turned tail, afraid of what I'd do for revenge."
Erin laughed, Charles would always be Charles.
"If you say so, come then let us fight one on one, no ship, no crew, no bloody cannons." Erin doubted Charles would except, in swordsmanship, he knew he was far superior, and Charles was anything but an idiot.
"Fine then, the island closest to Hell, 3 O'Clock." Charles said, smiling.
Erin took a minute to recover, not only had Charles agreed to the one thing in which Erin excelled in greatly, but he had chosen to do it on an island that Erin considered his own turf.
If Charles lost, Erin would be forced to kill him.
"There's no turning back now, Charles." Erin said warily.
"If you agree to this, then you agree to your own suicide."
"I understand, now then, I suggest you rest, you'll need all the help you can get." Charles then politely bowed, and exited the ship.
Erin just stared, dumbfounded.
