Ghost Shards
« on: March 21, 2012, 07:27:19 PM »







Aelina Rowan
Age: 20
Race: Snow Pixie
Height:  5'0"
Weapon(s): Scythe and Staff
Aelina is an older child who has a rebelleous streak that led to her joining a rag-tag gang of street performers at the age of sixteen, leaving behind her father Midlyn and sister Reina. When she returns home at seventeen, they are no where to be found. So Aelina decides to continue living in her family's originally established home; with her concealed friend Gwyn.


Narie Tearwyn
Age: 23
Race: Mini-M'vyr
Height:  4'9"
Weapon(s): Sword and Club
Narie is a tough, but motherly crusader - who along with Demi, is sent to protect the Stonesinger Aelina. She shares a strong bond with Sarie as her identical twin sister, and can be a borderline nag.


Demi Carinae
Age: 32
Race: Sand High-Fae
Height:  6'6"
Weapon(s): Spear
Demi is as he would say, "half-man, half-god, ALL animal". This ladies' man holds a rank of a captain in the crusaders. His light-hearted comic relief makes him a glutton for punishment, even while he guides the party with his worldly wisdom.

Since this has a topic now, I'll just post my YouTube videos here instead of my music thread. Also, you might want to go over your initial post again, lady. I don't think this forum supports font size 200.

^Nice. ^^ It's cool how unusual this sounds compared to fanfarous victory themes I'm used to :)

Thanks. :) Sometimes my tastes in composition deviate a bit from what's typical. Half the time that makes it bad, but if Strawberry's cool with this for her game then I'm not too worried.

I'm glad you like what you see, Raxus!

And I'm excited you like our music, Ser Lance! What do you think of the game, itself? Just curious. XD

Sound interesting. Keeping the fantasy spirit high from what I can read here sound classy. ^^

Thanks Ser Lance!

Hey all, we are looking for a female songstress to sing these lyrics to go along with the Title Theme that Merlandese composed for us. If you're willing, please let me know and I will PM you the details!  :)

No problem and actually if you really want to address me with honorary title than I'm more used to Chief. From too many RPs to count. :P

I've updated the first topic - but in case you missed it - here's the new presentation:



STORY
The world of Valena, ruled by nine sleeping Divinities, is in need of their awakening with the songs of the Stonesingers. Without the presence of the Divine, weather will cease to flow, the world will slowly degrade into a stagnant land.

However, all Stonesingers who recently ventured into the shrines of Divinities have yet to return. They were sent there only to be never seen again, not a slightest sound was heard by anyone. The only thing left from their disappearance are their ghost shards - a materialized piece of their soul.

A humble tavern bard and entertainer, Aelina Rowan, was arrested for crimes she felt innocent for. She was offered an alternative to redeem herself by fulfilling the role of a Stonesinger, oblivious about the mysterious disappearance of those who tried before her. Her journey would be accompanied by Narie Tearwyn, the twin sister of another Stonesinger, who perished in the very same quest Aelina is about to undertake.

The Divinities continue to slumber. Time continues to race with the fate of mortals. Why canít they be awakened? How much longer can the world of Valena wait?


CHARACTERS

"Aw, you're no fun... I wanted to play! Hehe!"
Age: 20
Race: Frost Pixie
Gender: Female
Weapon: Scythes and Staffs

The symbol of joy, the herald of happiness, the heart of delight -- these are all what Aelina Rowan has known to be in a cold village of Evertear. Who would have thought an innocent girl like her could be involved in a lethal crime?

A sweet, soothing voice has been Aelinaís main tool of trade, ever since she left home and joined a travelling troupe to spread the sound of wonderful music. While some people found her sense of humor to be at times creepy and sarcastic, her voice and a happy-go-lucky attitude have won her support from those who seek a relaxing retreat in the taverns. Even with her innocent arrest, she has been asked to use her voice to redeem herself - by becoming the next Stonesinger.

The future is looking blurry to her, having gone from a joyful bard to a herald of the Divinities. With the burden of an entire world on her shoulder, would she succeed, and what price would she have to pay?



"I won't let anyone close to me die again!"
Age: 21
Race: M'vyr
Gender: Female
Weapon: Swords and Clubs

Justice. Narie lives and dies by that word. Along with her sister Sarie, they spread kindness and virtues of the world to others together. This chosen path of theirs began from the church of Silver Hill, where they could put their virtues to good use.

As Narie and Sarie approach young adult ages, they turned to the opportunity of becoming a Stonesinger. Only Sarie was chosen by the Divinities to fulfill the quest of awakening them.

A lone ghost shard was the sole thing left of Sarie afterwards.

Narie made a promise to herself. A very serious promise. Justice must be served. No excuses or delay. Something must be done now.

For her sister, her friend, and all the Stonesingers. They cannot be all gone in vain.
