QuoteMagic. One of the greatest mysteries of this world, from simple magic capable of levitating objects off the ground to conjuring powerful lightning storms. It takes on many forms and yet it is bound by none. To use such mysterious and sometimes terrifying power one must have the right knowledge,understanding and mentallity to control it. However not everyone is born to use it as it is a birthright only granted to a few.54 years before the Enchanted Seal, the Eight Nethien, filled with tremendous powers, were the first to discover the mysterious forces of magic, How they had done so remains a mystery. Each of The Eight had seen it fit to pass on their knowledge to students who in turn taught to their own, and slowly magic had become more widespread in the world of Shalaren. Magic had made living much easier, creating vast improvements in the fields of Agriculture, Travel and most importantly in Warfare. People were quick to notice that magic was also useful not only in improving lives but in taking them as well. The Order of the Maestre founded by The Eight, the first wielders of magic had seen over the years the chaos that magic had caused and thus they created the Shroud, An elite force of soldiers with only one task.To regulate the use of magic from the shadows. The Shroud did their work well. Too well for that matter as many magical users had been slain by their religious zeal to fufill their duty to the Maestre. Soon it had become an unspoken rule that those who use magic, regardless of their position or occupation will be swiftly silenced permenently. The Maestre thinking that the Shroud's actions had solved their problem had breathed a sigh of relief. The world was finally at peace.How very wrong they were.Soon leaders from all different races over the world felt threatened by The Eight being the only ones allowed to use magic, and had begun to rise up in open revolt to fight for their freedom to use magic. The Miea, a peace court founded by the Maestre sought to calm these leaders through peaceful negotiations, However they could not be swayed by mere words and thus they had to be silenced by force. With a heavy heart they gave the order and the Shroud sprung into action silently stiffling the voices of the rebellion. At least that was the initial plan. The major powers of the rebellion had managed to convince some of the more prominent and powerful warriors to join their cause and a vicious and terrible battle ensued between the sides that rallied to the Maestre's flag and those who opposed them. The rampant use of magic by both forces had caused reality to shift and dissolve causing most individuals to descend into madness.Lucius, one of The Eight and a very well educated pupeteer and also a well known leader in the Shroud, had managed to create a curse, a seal to limit the use of magic throughout the world. The raging flames of war had been cooled. Everyone's magical abillity had begun to weaken slowly over the course of days, some even losing their abillity to use magic at all. The Enchanter's Seal as they called it brought peace throughout the land. The leaders of the uprising had accepted their loss of access to magic seeing as even the Eight were stripped of their own magical abillity. And thus peace took it's hold on the land.At least for awhile...The remaining Seven resented their loss of magical abillity and demanded Lucious to break the Seal. They claimed that they were wrong and that Shalaren needed magic as the people had grown too accostomed in using it. However their true goal was power, Power over the weak and to be looked upon as Gods among all races. Lucius begged them to give the seal a chance, It will bring peace he argued but his pleas fell on deaf ears.The remaining Seven rallied upon those still loyal to them and formed a new union which they called the "True Order". Knowing that Lucious's death would destroy the seal as he was the one that had created it. Although The Seven who opposed Lucious only held a shadow of the power they once weilded they still managed to consolodate all their powers into one last powerful spell of destruction. Lightning struck the earth violently, the earth split asunder and the winds howled in rage.All this just to kill one. Lucius however had managed to gather those loyal to him within the Shroud and as destruction raged around them he was protected by the powerful force of his allies. Lucious knew that the seal was the cause of this madness and that only he could control it. Upon realizing this it was up to him to seal himself and the rest of the Eight forever. The Seal held great magic poweful enough to entomb the Eight in a powerful spell, sealing them away for all eternity and scattering them through out the landscape to be forgotten throughout time. However the True Order remained, creating chaos driven by only one purpose, To break Enchanter's Seal. Few had risen up against the tyrnical Order intending to thwart their plans of breaking the seal. These brave men and women are the Heroes of Shalaren and it is up to them to stop the so called True Order and trully bring peace to this world.
QuoteThere's old scriptures carved onto the walls of the ancient ruins of Adalyn, of two twins symbolizing two different moons, fighting over a rock, a rock the locals believe to be our world before it was given life. The two kept pulling the rock back and fourth, screaming and teasing one another until it finally cracked, but they kept pulling until they soon found themselves falling into opposite directions with a different piece of the rock... angriliy the twins kept screaming at one another wanting the second piece. On these walls however there's unclear scribbles of a dark figure watching the twins from distance, and following them where ever they go... the locals say the light of their world protected the twins from darkness , and as long as it stays near, the dark figure cannot harm them. unfortunately it shows in the old scriptures that at night when one of the twins was asleep, the other stole the other piece of the rock, and ran away to play with it leaving his brother alone. There was alot that was missing on the ruins but further down the walls, it showed of one of the twins holding two pieces of the rock over the dead corpse of his other twin brother. The dead corpse was consumed with anger, fear, and darkness. The remaining twin began crying, devestated by regret kept holding onto the rocks and with a single tear to fall upon them, it softened and connected the pieces together, and as tears kept falling, the oceans were created, and slowly over the long years so was life in this world.
