Attention/Edit: THERE HAS BEEN A CHANGE IN THE SPIRITUAL ARTS. I HAVE PROBABLY ALREADY NOTIFIED YOU ABOUT IT. BUT, PLEASE, TAKE A LOOK BELOW! I'VE EDITED IT.
Attention/Edit #2: I HAVE RECEIVED ENOUGH NERO CHARACTERS NOW. I'M NOW ONLY ASKING FOR SOLA CHARACTERS, PLEASE. MAYBE FOUR OR FIVE. . . SO GET MOVING ON A SOLA CHARACTER IF YOU'D LIKE TO JOIN!
A/N: Woo! I haven't done this in so long. I'm so happy to be back on fiction press doing stuff. Spirit Guardians has been great, and I'm sorry I had to take it away, but publishers don't like material on the net, so I had to remove it. Sorry, guys. Anyway, I'm starting this story to get my writing juices flowing again – so that I can actually finish SG and have some fun perfecting my craft.
IN THIS STORY, people will be permitted to create a character to take part. This IS a story. NOT an RPG. If anyone has seen how the Dragon Warz stories operated or how Spirit Guardians has operated, then you will know that this is a legitimate story! The sign-up to create a character is further below after my little prologue – though, I wouldn't really say it's a prologue. Please, fill in ALL of the fields in the sign-up and submit it by review or by e-mail, sending it to me, Sanderek, at the e-mail address in my profile.
Attention: Copying of this story is wrong, and you should be ashamed of yourself for doing so. Have some respect and appreciate people's creative work – don't plagiarize. Besides, fictionpress copyrights this stuff, so don't be a fool.
Seasons of Bilancia
Amongst the scattered ruins of universes long past; amidst the debris of lost civilizations and ancient earths, subsides a desert flower amongst lifeless ethereal sands – a single world filled with beautiful life in the midst of swirling nothing. This world, Ilvasoix, glistens in resonating, unpolluted harmony, a perfect equilibrium.
Tranquil peace has nestled among its people for eras upon eras; a world without hurt or peril. In harmony, this perplexing place lives as three unique realms connected merely by invisible, unearthly gateways that men have crossed through freely for thousands of centuries. These realms live as one world, working together, though in refrain, each realm is left as its own unique entity – untouched by the qualities of one another.
Marked and known for their clearest traits, the realms each possess a significant, outstanding quality. Nero, the realm of eternal night, Sola, the realm of eternal day, and Eureth, the realm of eternal mist, whose sky is devoid of night and day, blend as one harmonized whole; a world of equal light and dark; a world called Ilvasoix.
It is in this luscious and serene place that the desires of men and the arrogance of garish upbringing have matured into an unseen threat, a case for any story of interest in the history of such a place to begin to stir.
The people of the middle realm, the simple minded and care-free people of Eureth, have been always known for their impressionable qualities, including the malleability of Eureth itself – a blank slate of circumambience. In an instance, they could be swayed to the bleak mysteries of night or to the gaudy coruscation of day. Though, no sort of impression has ever been made. . . or recorded.
For two hundred years, however, Ilvasoix has trembled. The earth has quavered in sudden excitement and the waters have risen and fallen fitfully without warning or even prophetic foresight. Men within Nero have begun to grow suspicious of one another. In response, masses have banded together, proclaiming themselves as representatives of peace – divided into parties by race or culture. As for Sola, unity amongst people has remained firm, but their resources have slowly been ebbing in and out of secure abundance.
As of now, the body of Ilvasoix quakes under massive, abrupt tremors, and its people sit in a quiet and undisturbed state – devoid of tension for the time-being – waiting for another storm to brew.
