I want to introduce you to an unseen world. It is a world of vibrant coral, underwater canyons, colorful fish, and deep sea caverns. This land may seem to exist on another planet entirely, but it is in fact located here, on planet Earth. Why is it unseen? Possibly because humans have not cared to venture into it's depths. Fortunately, they are too busy with their lives on land to care about us and our home in the Pacific Ocean. Once, this realm under the sea was filled with dolphins, whales, and porpoises, all living together happily. We called ourselves the Kingdom of Cetacea, although there was no king or queen. Twice a year, every citizen of Cetacea congregated at the Hall of Radiance, a secret, gorgeous cavern, to make decisions. These meetings normally came and went with celebration, but recently, a member of the high council rose and said something that would change our lives forever: the Kingdom of Sela, a kingdom of fearsome sharks, had settled near the Abyss, a deep gash in the sea floor where no Cetacean dared to go. As you can imagine, this news created quite an argument. Some citizens insisted they would fight these intruders, some wished to flee, and some plotted to join the other kingdom. A vote was taken, and the council agreed to stay in Cetacea, although we would be on guard for the Selans. So far, nothing eventful has happened. A few skirmishes have occurred on the border, but they were quickly forgotten. Will this unrest become a fierce battle, or will we retain an unsteady peace? You can help decide the outcome of this saga. Come, join me, ~~~Beneath the Waves~~~ Rules: ~ NO copying this RP. ~ I a control this thread.
