The story has a roughly medieval feel, and we'll make it up as we go along. It begins in a fictional village named Enden, in the Lowlands, by the base of the mountains that separate two regions that couldn't be more different. The Lowlands are made up of green rolling hills and forests, with rivers running throughout it, all coming from the mountains to the north. It is a land without magic, where humans live alongside animals, and there is little war. But they are unaware of the dangers that lay on the other side of the mountains. On the other side of the mountains, the Highlands are a land of ancient forests, marshes, lakes, rushing rivers, waterfalls, rocky hills, deep valleys, and snow covered peaks, that is prone to violent storms. It is a land of magic, where humans fight fantastical creatures, beings and spirits for control; the ruling kingdoms always at war, very aware of the plentiful Lowlands to the south. ⊰• The Rules •⊱ • All BYC rules apply. • There are no character sheets. Once you have PMed me and have been accepted, simply read the story thus far and describe the basics of your character in your post. Not every detail of your PC needs to be worked out up front. If you'd like some help with ideas on how to work a character into the story, feel free to PM me! • Do not play other peoples' characters without their permission, and run it by me. • No vampires, werewolves, fairies, unicorns or the like. Characters will encounter fantastical creatures along their journey, but these should not be PCs. • Elves, dwarves, and some types of Shapeshifter are aloud, but they are rare and only in the Highlands. • No magic or magical characters in the Lowlands without my consent. • No perfect characters, everyone has faults, and so should they. • If a situation arises that may involve a PC death or injury, please be considerate and PM the player of that character to work it out. • You may introduce multiple characters, just keep track of them. • Please use correct spelling and decent grammar. • Don't make a habit of one-liners! Not every post needs to be the length of a novel. But posts like "Sally watched" really don't help contribute to the story. • Feel free to contribute details to the world.
