  1. [Himmelia] - The Tale of The Sato Sisters

    Kimiko and Sarah both flash the young aasimar a double thumbs-up. "That's correct." Her next statement is met with awws from Kimiko and a stupid appreciative grin from Sarah. "That's nice of you to say, Fumi. Thank you very much." The orange half-orc says, reaching over to put her hand on Fumiko's. "I try and do my best, but I am a half-orc, raised by a non-orcish mum conversant with orc culture. Some things take more of a conscious effort." At this point, Kimiko's finished her food, and offers Sarah some. Of course, Sarah doesn't decline, and soon the half-orcish girl is eating her own batch from Kimiko's bowl. "Oh, no, I won't tell her exactly what to expect, I'll teach her how to resist the punishments better, how to access an orc's hardiness better." Sarah speaks, inbetween wolfing down forkfuls of the noodles. "Ask her, though. It's up to her, eventually. If she agrees, she won't regret the decision at the end." She might at the beginning, depending on how serious she ultimately is. "So, little sis." Kimiko appears behind Fumiko and ruffles her sister's deep black hair. "Will we have to be fending off boys with a stick with you?" She says, teasingly asking about her love life. "Or did you take after your sister and are crushing on Yvilda?" She asks bluntly.
  2. The Sky Coin

    THE SKY COIN [PLACEHOLDER LOGO] The two-sided flat landmass in the sky -I listen to Dark Synthwave while I edit this.- GEOGRAPHY Topography On the map, the Sky Coin appears to be an island city on a flat landmass with an average area of 1 square mile. What the maps don't show of this lone spot is that it's actually a floating city with a genius loci which allows for spatial compression i.e. it is bigger on the inside than it appears outside. The floating landmass is also two-sided due to the veil between the natural and the supernatural being particularly flimsy, turning the landmass into, as the locals have taken to calling it, the coin. Both alternates of each other, the base land consists of diverse geographical features, such as plains, valleys, mountains, water bodies, forested areas and even swamps. Cityscape Both sides of the coin have virtually the same concentric arrangement in terms of topography: The heavily-guarded Edge, followed by the forested area, then a small plain before city walls. The differences between the two sides become more pronounced where the city is concerned, with the only similarity being the centre of the city and its contents: the administrative sector, which also serves as the religious sector, as in this society, religion and leadership are intertwined. Their religions encourage scientific advancement, so each side has a distinctly futuristic decor: Himmelia's post-cyberpunk and Dorcha's 80's retrofuturism, a development that was facilitated by what worked best with the precious minerals native to the island sides. At the exact centre is a lake on both sides that shares the same source, magical lakes, with Dorcha's side tainted by chaos and Himmelia's purified by order. In this lake, births are conducted, deaths are overseen and the life on the island is believed to have originated from it. Climate Himmelia, the side facing the sky proper, receives more sunlight and has proper access to clouds than Dorcha, who are shaded somewhat from the light and heat, their 'sky' being the river below, which changes color to show the days passing by. The cities are protected by force-field domes within which the weather is loosely controlled by weather machines, tended to by scientists, to get the most optimal weather. The area has constant cloud cover, and experiences cool temperatures. Flora and Fauna Demographics Races present: Numans (Zo'bwa)- Enhanced humans that take perfectly to nanite augmentations. Vampyrs - Night-walking undead creatures. Beast Elves: These are elves which have the ability to transform as an inborn animal and take on their characteristics. More than two-thirds of the ones in Himmelia are foxborn. Dhampyr: Classified under elves, although they lack the pointed ears, and all have fangs, as well as a desire for blood that must be sated every few days. Culture Economy Major Companies and Institutions Parks and Recreation Landmarks and monuments Government Local government Federal government Education Transportation Roads and Highways: Rails/Subways: Riverways: Cab (mounted horse, etc?): Private: Notable Residents History In the beginning, there were The Watchers, a race of cosmic (eldritch, if you will) incomprehensible beings who only choose to take a humanoid form mortals are comfortable with. Then there were The Dreamers, a rogue faction of The Watchers who had taken to creating and destroying without purpose, which was not the way of The Watchers. Canon Past
  3. [Himmelia] - The Tale of The Sato Sisters

    Sarah and Kimiko glance at each other with that explanation, an amused smile forming on their faces. As if on cue, both girls chuckle to themselves. "Oh, Fumi! That sounds like something you heard in school!" Kimiko begins, grinning her pearly whites, her orange-colored eyes glinting in the yellow bulb light. "Or something out of Dorcha!" Sarah adds, trying and failing to stop chuckling. Both girls manage to, eventually, but probably not before getting Fumiko a little miffed. "Ahem, sorry Fumi, but that wasn't quite it. Not here in Himmelia, anyway." Kimiko says, being the last to stop laughing, and reaching to pat her sister's hand. "I work for Jinkei..." As Sarah mentions her name, a look of admiration crosses her eyes, but she hides it quickly. "... and she's the poster child for politeness. I met her after partnering with Kimmy, and she gave me a book. It was kinda boring, but I learned a lot from it, eventually. The proper method to conduct yourself in society so that others have a better opinion of you and themselves, that's politeness. Obviously I'm still learning." Sarah finishes, self-depreciatingly. Kimiko watches the girls interact with each other with a smile and some silence. She learns how close Yvilda and Fumiko must be, Yvilda's resilience, and that look in Sarah's eye that suggests she likes the Fumiko she sees. "Ah, my condolences to them." Sarah's saying, looking a bit serious indeed. "My mum is a retired warrior who lived around orcs for a time. She did the best she could. making me a true DeathKillaxe by raising me around other half-orcs." When she's informed that the young girl's best friend has tried twice to become a priestess, however, both older girls perk up, glance at each other, and nod. "Twice to become a priestess. I can help her increase that number to five. I only tried becoming one as a personal test, I've done it four times, but I don't want to become a priestess. I'm a druid. Nature magic, self-healing, spiritshifting to my bond animal, the whole works. Never would have found out if not for Jinkei." There comes that flash of admiration again.
  4. [Star Crossed!] ...my immortal.

    Setting emotions aside, on the contrary, feels rather difficult for Renji at this stage, but he manages it as best he can, though unable to hide the smile tugging at the corners of his stoic lips. As he scans her mind for assurance, her thoughts laid bare for him to read, the smile cannot but slowly complete itself at what he finds. On hearing her unwillingness to chase after a man like Caesar Flynn, Renji exhales slowly, his attempt at hiding his sigh of relief. Unable to help himself, he responds with a reminder to be on her guard when meeting the red-haired vampire, but otherwise nodding and smiling, somewhat satisfied that he has all the bases covered. And, with his offering her a teacher and offering to take her there, he has a chance to travel more with this extraordinary woman. And to think, he's just here to forget about his last fling. It got him past his dead first love, having to kill another to save her, deciding to doom himself to a lifetime of loneliness, when here appears a creature that could give him cause to try one more time. Renji being a man that tends to be set in his ways, this effect of her being interests him in more ways than one. And as he can read from her thoughts, she has noticed this and is responding positively. As she checks off her mental check list, he finds himself nodding in agreement, his own factors for attraction ticking themselves off a list: her Asian ancestry, old-world attitude & appearance, the combination of a demure form with ancient eyes and potentially dangerous abilities, with the added restraint needed, paint a very pleasing picture on his end. The brief pout she makes with her mouth is picked up by his senses, and he shows her his grin for the first time since they met, his pointy-sharp iridescent teeth gleaming. The fact that they're pointy and sharp is why he never shows them, but he rationalizes this behaviour by noting that it's impossible for Mei-Lan to smile without some sort of fangs peeking out. Maybe one more try, something tells him this one will be worth it. What luck, to have a random shot in the dark become someone he'd want to date again, despite his cynical outlook on the matter. "That would be best, Mei-chan." His incredibly warm hands resume gently holding the Chinese Vampire's paradoxically-feeling hand - yet another point of attraction - and rises up in his seat. His noodles eaten to the last strand, he leads his date to the cashier and pulls out a few coins, operating on the belief that the male should pay for both himself and his date, unless she stopped him... in which case, he'd insist. Turning his head to her general direction, his supernatural senses doing the rest to paint a 'world of electricity' picture of the beauty beside him, he smiles a little. "So, where to next, Mei-chan? You might find my home, the Sky Coin interesting. I cannot be in Dorcha for very long without losing control, but that is where your teacher lives, and where we must go. Himmelia's sun I could shield you from for a time, but you'd have to stay indoors a lot for your safety."
  5. [Himmelia] - The Tale of The Sato Sisters

    "Oh, no..." Kimiko mutters to herself when Fumiko talks about the polite thing to say, but her Sarah ignores her, lips pursed together as she nods at Fumiko. "Polite, eh? I've had a mixed history with politeness. First, a polite girl like my mum taught me to be, and then I began to think it was just needless rules imposed by weak prey to seem less weak. While I once again see the value in it, I still don't like lying to seem polite." In other words, she prefers bluntness. "So you don't have to lie to me to seem polite, okay?" Sarah finishes, trying hard to keep firmness out of her voice and not quite succeeding. She leans back and scratches her head, suddenly laughing nervously as she glances at Kimiko, who shakes her head back at her in a disapproving manner, as if to say 'you could have worded that better'. "... My mum's the human, and she's the living one. Because of her, we knew the Browns, although actually your friend's father's cousins. They were polite, but not overly so, and I liked them." The last part at the end is a rather obvious bit of damage control, and she smiles widely. "Syllva is coming?" Kimiko perks up at that. Cold lemonade is always welcome while training and working up a sweat. Something about the elf's cheery personality always did bother her, though, like she just wanted to be liked by everyone, the poor thing. Perhaps it's the fact that Syllva's equivalent age makes her younger than Kimiko herself, and triggered her maternal instinct. Sarah giggles in response and nods. "Don't worry, you two, tomorrow we'll start, and channel all emotions into our training. Tonight, we start grieving together." At this point, her face falls once more, and she falls silent.
  6. [Himmelia] - The Tale of The Sato Sisters

    Sarah smiles wider as she is spoken to by the younger aasimar, adjusting her chair so that she is equidistant from both girls, and sits down. After flashing a rather unsure smile at her girlfriend Kimiko - who smiles back, equal parts reassuringly and defiantly - she turns back to Fumiko, smiling once again. "Oh, is that so? She already regale you with tales of our escapades, not one day after you move in?" She grins as cheekily as she can manage, her words a way to inform Fumiko that she's so close to Kimiko that she knows how little time they get to spend since the elder of the two sisters moved out. Kimiko is also looking at Fumiko as she speaks with Sarah, having noticed the smile at Angelbutt, but says nothing. Right now she's thinking of how that must sound to other people, and that brings a big smile to her face, her mind trailing off for the moment. Meanwhile, the orange-skinned half-orc is asked about another half-orc family. "Ah, the Halftusk-Browns. I know of them, we used to feud with the Halftusks, but we were friends of the Browns. Long story short, bygones are bygones. At least, my mum doesn't hate the Halftusk-Browns. Right, Kimi?" She stretches a muscled hand towards Kimiko, who breaks out of her reverie and hurriedly grabs Sarah's hand. "Bwuh? Uhh... yeah, Sarah." She quickly replies after a moment's pause, smiling back. "We were just talking about training our powers. Fumi's has to do with light, and I was thinking you'd know concentration and multitask exercises to help her keep it solid while she swings." Kimiko says, bringing Sarah up to speed on their most recent conversation. This revelation brings another smile to the half-orc's face. "Is that so? Then she'll have to work on her fundamentals. We can do that in the morning, I haven't slept tonight. I was with Nettie at Syllvla's lemonade and blood-pack stand when I heard. Syllvla might come over tomorrow to bring some lemonade while we train." She's too grief-stricken to crack her usual joke about how an elf would have a thriving business selling both lemonade and supplying blood packs.

  8. Sky Coin Features

    HIMMELIA Basic Description: A post-cyberpunk self-sustaining city populated majorly by nu-humans, elves, gnomes and half-celestials of different types. Blues, greens, yellows and whites are the main thematic colors of their decor. Multicultural, desired aesthetic inspired by Skypiea in One Piece; Transistor's Cloudbank and pictures of conceptual African post-cyberpunk. Though it is the brighter half of Dorcha, both literally and figuratively, not all of its population is good, though most are definitely on the brighter side of grey. Technology: Himmelia is a bright post-cyberpunk universe with elements of nanopunk. Technology is on the distant futuristic side, with it thoroughly integrated into everyday life. Most of the science is pseudo-magical. There are transhumanoids present, with either nanomechanical augmentations or external photonium augmentations. Photonium and its derivatives are used in a number of applications, from communications and storage discs to nanomechanical augmentations and power amplifiers. The genius loci has charged the atmosphere with spirit energy which everyone can access in some form of the other, but special training is required to use it effectively. Every elf family line has different abilities, transformative forms and specializations. Everyone works together to keep the place in tip-top shape. Digital construction nanotech is available, but requires spirit energy to use. With it, anything can be created or simulated, think 'advanced 3D printing'. Teleportation is possible, but only to skilled Spirit Energy users. Other lesser forms use teleportation by object switching, among others. Character Types: Normal people: Humans, orcs, dwarves, gnomes, elves. These are the random people going about their day. They usually lack the ability to use spirit energy, at most being able to do basic things with it, but the access to technology more than makes up for it. Still, with the type of things that roam around this world, they can be considered the weakest. There are concerns that the widespread use of technology could get out of hand, though society has more-or-less adapted to having all this technology at their disposal. Orcs in this setting are usually purple or orange-skinned. Gnomes are shorter than dwarves, and are German-based. Beast elves also exist in this place. Aasimar: Slightly above the normal ones in the pecking order, these are the ones from the normal race with angelic blood. Uses DnD and Pathfinder lore, but tweaked to be specific to the Sky Coin. Elves: Beast Elves: These are elves which have the ability to transform as an inborn animal and take on their characteristics. More than two-thirds of the ones in Himmelia are foxborn. Sky Elves Dhampyr: Classified under elves, although they lack the pointed ears, and all have fangs, as well as a desire for blood that must be sated every few days. Numans: These brand of humans have, in the stead of magical ability, an inborn nanosystem that both enhances nanotech interface ability and provides extranormal abilities. They have black sclera, a limited amount of hair color variation and a lot of unnatural eye color. The lightest-skinned people here are mostly light yellowish-brown. They usually have African and Asian names. Ninja is a catch-all term for the various mercenary black-ops units that exist all around the world. When a more delicate touch is needed, jobs are outsourced to these ninja. Their methods, equipment, M.O. etc. differ by clan. For ninja, it's standard protocol to use a pseudonym when off-world. Sentient AI: In this world, they exist to serve organics, and are usually glad to do their job. Half-Celestials Celestial Pantheon: The ones who run things from behind-the-scenes, whom the leaders of Himmelia periodically report to. They are in perpetual conflict with the Dorchans. The Himmelians who perform particularly noteworthy actions are elevated and deified to varying levels by a being known as the Spirit of Himmelia.
  9. Sky Coin Features

    DORCHA Basic Description: A neo-retro biopunk city populated majorly by vampires, humanoid eldritch abominations, humans, elves and tieflings. Life is suited for vampires there, with fruit that bleed and can be drunk from, the vampire equivalent of vegetables. Multicultural, but inspired by the futuristic cities of 80s anime, like AKIRA. Though it is the darker mirror half of Himmelia, both literally and figuratively, not all of its population is evil, though most are definitely on the darker side of grey. Technology: Dorcha is a biopunk Retro Universe. This means that although technology is futuristic, it contains elements of the technology of the 1980s. This means that cassette tapes and vinyl turntables are used alongside flatscreen televisions, electronic cameras and iPhone expies. Most of the science is pseudo-magical. The biopunk elements implies exactly that: bioengineering, experiments done in a bid to 'improve' upon existing species, mutants of varying levels of mental capacity. Lunarium and its derivatives are used in a number of applications, from communications and weaponry to mind control devices and power output amplifiers. The genius loci has charged the atmosphere with spirit energy which everyone can access in some form of the other, but special training is required to use it effectively. Every vampire clan has unique powers they can use in varying ways, but the Marked Ones have more unique powers. Experimentation is a favorite of the numerous unethical scientists that fill the place. It has its share of mutated and genetically-engineered beings running around. Digital construction nanotech is available, but requires spirit energy to use. With it, anything can be created or simulated, think 'advanced 3D printing'. Teleportation is possible, but only to skilled Spirit Energy users. Other lesser forms use teleportation by object switching, among others. Character Types: FodderNormal people: Humans, orcs, dwarves, gnomes, elves. These are the random people going about their day. They usually lack the ability to use spirit energy, at most being able to do basic things with it, but the access to biotechnology more than makes up for it. Still, with the type of things that roam around this world, they can be considered the weakest. Society has more-or-less adapted to having all this technology at their disposal. They also make excellent fodder for the stronger species. Orcs in this setting are usually purple or orange-skinned. Gnomes are shorter than dwarves, and are German-based. Beast elves also exist in this place. Tieflings: Slightly above the normal ones in the pecking order, these are the ones from the normal race with demonic blood. Uses DnD and Pathfinder lore, but tweaked to be specific to the Sky Coin. Transnumans are volunteers who underwent extensive experimental surgery, turning them into half-machine hybrids. What is left of their real body is in their head, spine and torso, the others have been replaced. Bio-enhanced transnumans are soldiers that have undergone heavy bioaugmentation in order to become faster, stronger and more formidable. They are basically one-man armies, and they are brought out when shit goes down. Sentient neurotic robots Vampyrs: This is a catch-all term for undead beings who feed on living people, sometimes to the point of killing said beings, be it their blood, energy or emotions. Though all vampires come from severe mutations, they have survived long enough to have mutated further into different distinct clans, with their traits, powers and weaknesses. Among these are: Her Marked Ones Skinstealers Twisted Tauric Vampires Sanguines Highborn Eldritch-Touched: Anything from humans with eldritch abilities, to full-on humanoid abominations (both inborn or 'gifted externally' by eldritch creatures). The Dreamers and The Watchers are the two race of eldritch beings that run things from behind-the-scenes, but hardly ever show their faces. When face-to-face with a hostile one, you wouldn't even be able to run.
  10. Salve~!

    Welcome to Valucre, Iniquity! There's much fun to be had here!
  11. Hi man.

    So, seems like Raven's made an enemy! And I can't help but think that we should throw Malik and Raven in a room and see what happens. You in?

    1. ezkiel777

      ezkiel777

      It will happen eventually, but not soon. Malik is preoccupied with growing his strength. In Aizens Kingslayer arc, which is Ravens next major step, Malik won't be involved. Rather, he has a slave army (really only a couple hundred in numbers) of half and quarter demons from Tellus Mater who will be playing their own major role in contest with Raven unbeknownst to her. 

      She and I have major plans. I won't get into it because spoilers. But just know Raven and Malik won't have any personal contact for awhile.

      Although I do want to see them solidify a powerful friendship in the future. Who knows? Maybe Raven will soften his callous heart one day.

  12. So sorry about missing the rest of the Sun Rises Again, my phone and only source of network data got spoilt.

    Now, though, I have a sorta replacement. Had replies for Raven in mind...

    If you got any other threads, I'd gladly join them... though my exams start at the 10th of next month...

  13. [Himmelia] - The Tale of The Sato Sisters

    Sarah and Kimiko continue to hug tightly and silently, neither of them so much as sobbing, the tears flowing freely as they find comfort in each other's arms. The hug ends when, as Sarah goes for a kiss, Kimiko pulls back and points out her little sister's presence. On hearing of Fumiko's presence, Sarah whirls around to face Fumiko, her features gaining some measure of happiness on finally getting to meet the younger aasimar. "This is Fumiko?" She asks, her voice a bit on the deep side, rather harsh, and smooth at the same time. "I've heard a lot about you. Once Kimi starts off about you, it's hard to get her to stop... not that I ever want to." She says, wiping her eyes of the tears. It's then that for the first time, she really looks at the table setting, realizing a bit late that she's interrupting some sisterly time. "I'm sorry, Angelbutt, I didn't--" Sarah starts to say, stepping away from the table, when Kimiko raises up a hand. "Don't worry, Orangeade. You're here now. I did want to spend quality time with my sister, but I also was just talking about you. Come, pull up a chair." Though Sarah looks about ready to leave the house and give the sisters their space, she can see it in Kimiko's eyes: now that she's here, she isn't leaving so easily. Perhaps she'd have to sleep on the couch or something, but she isn't leaving so easily. "Maybe a little while, but then I kinda need time to think." She finally replies, pulling up a chair and sitting down.
  14. [Himmelia] - The Tale of The Sato Sisters

    The still crying Kimiko closes her eyes and deepens her breaths in an attempt to calm herself, then smiles in a delayed response to Fumiko's inquiry. "I meant after you meet her. You both would end up alone in the same room at some point tomorrow, I leave her in the house while I go out sometimes. You see?" She asks, opening her eyes and looking her sister in the eye once more. "I love her, but I want time for my sister, too. I was hoping we could spend the night just chatting. Plus, she loved our parents, and they loved her right back. I'm not sure how she'd take it." Wiping her eyes, Kimiko manages a mirthless chuckle. "As I was saying..." She begins again, in a bid to change the subject and resume their prior conversation. "About the orcs... They are, but so many of them are predisposed to physical arts that a magic user is seen as strange in their community... but no, I mean that orcs are tenacious. I always have been, I guess, and learning that could help you work at honing your focusing abil--" Interrupting the moist-eyed Kimiko's speech is the sound of the door being knocked. As the sound that follows becomes a key being used, Kimiko's eyes widen in realization as she stands up without realizing it, her chopsticks falling limply from her hand when Sarah reveals herself. The raven-haired and grey-eyed curvy orange beauty turns towards Kimmy with tear-stained eyes, marches to the dumbstruck aasimar and hugs her tightly while they cry in silence.
