Awaiting the dawn

Post  Vilkas on Thu Sep 03, 2015 3:05 am

Gwyn, the land of light, is a peaceful world that has never witnessed bloodshed or war. It prospers thanks to The Knights of Dusk and The Daughters of The Deadly 7. The Knights of Dusk guard a Daughter of The Deadly 7 as she sings at The Alter of Reflection deep in the earth. No one knows what happens when a Daughter stops singing ,and none have seen a Daughter after she starts singing, but The Knights of Dusk immediately go out and collect the next Daughter to sing. A Daughter can be heard singing day and night for a couple of weeks to a month before the singing stops and The Knights of Dusk collect the next Daughter.

One Daughter, the Daughter of Wrath, ran away from The Knights of Dusk rather than submit to a fate she didn't want and dove deep into a lake to try and hide. Pulled from the water by a stranger's hand she now finds herself in a world of decay and ruin. How did this happen? Where is she? And why is everything strange yet familiar?

Rules

  1. The Usual
  2. You can be the Daughter of Wrath, but you don't have to be. You can be anyone that could have jumped in after her. The only exception being a Knight of Dusk for plot purposes
  3. Every Daughter of The Deadly 7 takes on the surname 'Gwyn' when they start training to sing at The Alter of Reflection
  4. The people of Gwyn(Gwynians) are not fighters, with the exception of The Knights of Dusk, but they aren't necessarily weak either
  5. The other Daughters(Envy, Gluttony, Greed, Lust, Pride, and Sloth) can also find the lake or have run away with Wrath if you want to be one of them
  6. Gwyn is very much a paradise. Strife is hardly, if ever, encountered. The only exceptions being The Daughters of The Deadly 7, whom often must leave home at a young age to live at a temple. Some are allowed to stay with their families, but all must dedicate their time to practicing their prayer song.
  7. Each Daughter of The Deadly 7 has her own prayer song. You can choose what they sing or you can just describe the quality of their voice if you like Smile
  8. Any questions just ask Cool



notes on the people from the 'strange world':


  • Due to their diet, the Kalese have strong jaws and sharp teeth(think either lions or hyenas)
  • The eyes of the Kalese have adapted to seeing in near total darkness. Light can cause pain or migraines.
  • Water is precious and rare. The act of sharing water is akin to taking an arrow for the Kalese
  • There are three types of groups in Kali: Bandit Flocks, Survivor Packs, and Maternal Herds. Only the most vile would attack a Maternal Herd.

The Gwynians rescuer stood silently over them save for his slightly heavy breaths. Despite his jump in the water his clothes were filthy and his feet were caked in dirt. What wasn't covered by clothes or dirt was either bruised or at least scratched. The boy looked at the Gwynians in shock, like he'd never seen anyone so clean before.

The forest around them was dark with sickly trees twisting toward the sky, a nauseating scent filled the air, and there was a sense of omnipresent danger. This land was a stark contrast to the calm and beauty of Gwyn. The only thing even slightly reminiscent of Gwyn were these violet flowers that shined with a brilliant blue light, lighting up what would otherwise be a pitch black forest.
