The Sheans are highly adaptable as a species. They make use of whatever were available.

Riahs are not just structures for the Sheans to scale up to collect nitrogen, they also serve as housings for the Sheans. With its sheer height and thickness, there is plenty of room for each of them. Sheans make us of the size and abundance of the strands by making Read more →

(REVLIS) Lore: Housing/Town Layout


Friday, Jan 22, 2016 - 11:36:51 am

@ A150046

Revlis has a radial design. The trees surround the town in a circle.


Houses are placed near to the edge. There isn’t enough space to build everyone a house, so everyone lives together, usually 10 to a house.

The houses are made of mostly mud bricks, rocks, stones, as the community sometimes burns off the overgrowth with fire and they don’t want Read more →

As such, he unintentionally offended several individuals whom are mode dedicated to the Beacon's cause on top of Forge members whom are aware of his betrayal. Extremely dexterous and proficient in firearms due to his training, Lewis is formidable in combat but lacks in strength or endurance, essentially making him a glass canon.

@ nathalie_nathalie

Facial appearances don’t matter here. You don’t have them anyway. 

The faceless land of Truccozio

Truccozio looks just like any other world with citizens like traders, doctors, inventors, craftsmen, verdura farmers and governors -but looks can be deceiving. The only thing different about the people of Truccozio, is that they have no facial features. They have never seen an actual face with facial Read more →

Karl,Truccozion boy,20 Karl is from a family of craftsmen. Making and designing mascheres is his family business. From the age of 6, he starts to impart crafting skills from his father. Karl is also known as one of the top crafters of mascheres. With his vast experience as a maschere maker, he did travel with his father to other towns to craft for luxurious families. However, after designing for so many years, he did not know who he is. He was fulfilling orders most of the time and lost track of his own identity. Approaching his adulthood which he requires to make a maschere for himself, he decides to set out for the journey to know more about himself and hopes that before he reaches his adulthood, he would be able to craft a maschere that symbolises him.
Girl with face Name: Felicity, 21 Backstory: Felicity was a quiet and shy Truccozion. Everyone was the same but only disliked her. Since Felicity was quiet, she was always bullied by everyone. Felicity felt that she had no one to talk to and no Maschere wanted to be associated with her. All the Maschere always had to draw lots to see who was the unlucky one to go with her. Felicity felt heartbroken as she knew that she was the same as everyone else. No one wanted to be her friend and all the Maschere ran away when being with her. Felicity then walked out of the town to somewhere she had never been before. She met a young boy who had facial features and asked him about it. He just held her hand and brought her into a strangely dark room where a scientist, Joque was. Joque saw that she was gloomy and wanted a new life so he poured a green liquid on her face. Immediately, she had a face.
This is Karl. Karl is bad at mathematics and his passport showed that he was acutally 17. He took so much time to practice the art of crafting that he forgot how to count. Karl is not learning. Don't be like Karl.
Strenght: Karl is a kid so Karl has no strength. ( 0 Str) Agility: Karl is hyperactive so he has 6 agility (6 Agi) Intelligence: Karl can't do maths, don't be like Karl (0 Int)
[OOC] Hi! Sorry please include these information for your character as well: - Job currently if any - Describe/design her face (can include any facial features but please make it distinguishable as a face) - Agility +2 and distribute the other 6 points to the three attributes -Strength, Agility and Intelligence
Job: previously she worked as a flower shop assistant, she is now jobless as no one wants to hire her since she looked strange. Facial features: She has a thick red lip, small eyes like cherries, dark skin, big ears with one of the ears have a small mole and a sharp nose. AGL - 1 STR - 1 INT - 4
Job: High End Mask Crafter Apprentice Facial features: He has small pearly eyes, thin lips, small ears, fair skin, relatively small size compared to the other citizens. Str - 1 Agi- 4 Int - 1

Lore 1 | Shea: The world that never stays

@ garythesnail



Shea is a world with endless black towering strands, called Riah, that shoot up from the ground. Or so it seems. The strands block out most of the light, making Shea a generally dark place to be residing in.

The ground on Shea is relatively soft, sinking in with every step taken, and is constantly pulsating. Also, it is filled with craters Read more →

Name: Kappa Age: 28 (OOC: Is there a gender? If there is it can be male for my character) Strength: 3 Agility: 3 Intelligence: 2 Kappa has always been pretty average. His strength are enough to hold on to the black strands so he never feared being washed off. But there don’t seem to be much else he could use the strength for. Kappa is tall though. In face he is a full neck and shoulders taller than the rest. So even though his agility is too average, he sometimes climbs slightly higher than most, and gathers more nitrogen for those who needs it below. Moreover, he actually likes going up the long black strands. Kappa was curious on what is at the top of the black strands (OOC: give these strands a name? @@) when he was younger, but he can never even climb as far up as the more agile Sheans, and even the most agile Sheans cannot tell them what is above the black strands. So eventually, that became a challenge for him, to always try to climb higher than the more agile Sheans. Once or twice he did. Mostly he didn’t. By 28, going as far up as he could was merely a form of habit, entertainment and way to pass the time. He didn’t care for the library, and this entertainment was more than enough for a simple person like Kappa to get by. When he heard about the Shean that floated away, Kappa was bewildered and sad. But more than that, for the first time Kappa is afraid. When such a talented Shean could lose their life so easily, what will happen to the average Kappa?
Name: Klaus Age: 25 Str:3 Agl:2 Int:3 Klaus enjoyed the library. He wasn't really into climbing the strands as high as he could, but he knew how to get by just fine. He's quite reserved and was kind to others, but he was such a worrywart. Camping in the library and reading up on their situation helped to calm him down a little bit. Just a realistic being I guess. Tragically, he actually knew the Shean who was washed away by the flood. They weren't close friends or anything, but they occasionally made small talk while clinging on the black strands. That made Klaus realise the severity of the situation they were in, and how they needed to find a solution ASAP. Klaus remains hopeful about their survival, turning to the books for help.
[OOC] Hahaha sure! You can be male! And okay! I will edit it! The black strands shall be named Riah

After Light is set in an alternate modern day Singapore. When the sun goes down, the dead rises.

Name: Abbie Lee Strength/ Agility/ Intelligence (after distribution): 7/6/8 Appearance: Black hair and dark eyes Dressed in a dark ghostbusters tshirt, shorts and converses (dressed as a regular university student) No visible wounds from the front, multiple gaping wounds on her back Backstory: Abbie is newly Dead and is a floundering soul deep within the depths of the supernatural world. Despite not being much of a drinker, frequenting the supernatural bars has it perks still. They say dead men tell no lies, add ‘drunken mess’ to the list and you’ve got patrons rambling enough about the supernatural world for you to write a textbook. To be frank, the supernatural world isn’t that different from her old life, apart from having to live like a vampire, emerging only during nightfall. Holding no responsibilities and the knocking back beers nightly may seem like paradise but not for Abbie. Between the drunken spirits’ ramblings, she’d zone out and try recalling her previous life. She led a rather uneventful life so there really wasn’t much to recall. Only her family and a select few friends were worth remembering. The bit that frustrated her the most was that she could remember everything, from inside jokes to the information relevant to her previously-current job, EVERYTHING, except the moments leading up to her untimely death. And Abbie is pissed. She didn’t deserve this! She had absolutely no desire of wasting away her afterlife on drinking endless amounts of booze without the fear of alcohol poisoning. She’d rather head on to reincarnation but that’s the thing – amidst the near incomprehensibly slurred rambles of the drunken spirits, she’d learnt that she’d actually need to get rid of the grudge she’s harbouring and to do that, she needs to remember who killed her. Even if retribution isn’t on her mind, she’d really like to move on as she decides that she isn’t quite suited for the afterlife. [OOC] Hi! I made a switch with Ying Li (your original actor) so I'm your new actor!
Hi! Thanks for the heads up! I'll update with chapter 1 as soon as the other character is up :)

He is quite skinny, but however tall in height. As he need to stay awake every night, very dark eye circles can be seen on his face. In the day time, he will dressed as any other normal people. But during the dark, he will be wearing suits with blue tie. Backstory: Before awakening, Carl has worked as a forensic for 3 years. By that time, he was already 27. Experienced has caused him to be calm as water when deals with any kind of dead body. However, one day, this event almost entirely destroyed his life. During the midnight, he was called from home to arrive at this crime scene. Reports indicate that an old man was found dead on the middle of an expressway. When Carl arrived there, indeed, a 60 year old man was lying on the road with no physical wound. After the basic checking, Carl was ready to bring the body back to lab. But just while he turned back and look at the body. He noticed a horrifying smile appeared on the dead’s face. He has never met anything like this before. Carl was so terrified. However, he was just about pointing this to his colleagues, the smile just disappeared from the face. As Carl was an antithesis person, he never believe in any forms of spirit or ghost. Even though he felt that something was wrong, he still brought the body back to his lab. As he was dissecting the body, something very creepy happened. At first it was just some whispering on his ears. Then the whispers got louder and louder, until it turns out to be shouting. Carl could feel an ice-chilling cold spreading around his body. Suddenly, he was “awakened”. He was able see what are “things” in the lab now. They are all white color shadows, wandering around the lab, trying to go into Carl’s body. Carl thought that this definitely is gonna be his dead end. However, he was saved by this mysterious man. The man “cleaned” all the ghosts. He told Carl that he has awakened and is able to all the “thing’. From now on, all the ghost will start to look for Carl. And the only way to stay alive is to join his organization. Thus, Carl quit his job as a forensic. Every night, he will be wearing suit, and chase away all the wandering ghosts. [OOC]: Hi! Sorry for comme
Thanks for the cool backstory Xiaotong, just to double confirm with you, the organization Carl join is the Exorcists right?
