Thanks Spinus for title and CS's
The forest was silent. No animal made a noise. Only the faint howl of the northern wind brushing against the grass, and the slow pendulum sways of the trees can be heard. Gex shifted uneasily as he stood, making rustling noises with his feet to the grass. “I can do this” he thought. He clenched his fists and held it up to the height of his shoulders. He made a quick step back with his right foot and made an attack formation. He took a deep breath, sighed then got ready. He flexed his muscles, and punched the air, making explosions. His hand movement was fast, and it broke the sound barrier. The forest echoed now with surges of wind blasting from Gex’s attacks, and the trees now shook violently. He grunted, jumped back, and finished off with a giant punch that formed a forward windblast that then cut through trees. Branches fell off the trees from where the blast struck, and then silence again. Now, Gex closed his eyes and meditated. Golden seeps of aura was coming out of him, and in less than a minute he was engulfed in this translucent aura. He opened his eyes, and the aura flashed brighter, making a metallic noise. He rose his right hand slowly, as giant roots appeared from the ground, controlled by him. He rose his hand higher, and more roots appeared. The grass-filled ground was being torn by the appearing roots, and soon the earth was nothing but dirt under the roots. He clenched his right fist, and suddenly the roots twisted against each other, making a one, big, root. “Ha!” He yelled while making a pushing motion with his right hand. The root shot forward, destroying trees, destroying the soil, and carved a trail right through the forest. Gex smiled happily, content, proud, and excited at the same time…
Gex finally arrived at his village. The village was high up in the tall pine trees, and was connected together by wooden log bridges. He climbed up the entrance ladder, and walked along the sturdy platform of the village. Night was coming, and many people are going inside their homes, trying to follow the Emperor’s curfew. Gex walked towards a tree house with intricate designs outside its walls; silk curtains cover the front of the door. Gex entered the shady room, only lit by a faint red lamp. He spoke silently, but you can tell the happiness in his words. “I mastered it! I actually did! I used all my strength, and I , and I, I can‘t believe it.” Another Stellion was facing him, wearing a turban, and silky clothing. His face was grim and filled with sadness, and as he spoke, his wrinkles wiggled slowly. “Good…good… Go to the blacksmith and pick up your sword… Leave while you can, now…” Gex nodded intently at the shaman, leaving a man he’ll never see again behind…
Soon after Gex left, the village fell to the ground and everyone was executed by the Imperial Guards. Gex never looked back, knowing that that was his last night in the village…
If you didn't get what was happening in that little story up there ^^, or you didn't read, then I'll just tell you what this is about. In the early years of this continent, there ruled an Empire. The Empire was ruled by a race called Stellions. They believed in non biased governments, freedom of speech, and low taxes. There were barbarians surrounding this Empire, most were separate tribes of Eskorpians. Until one Emperor, a very strict ruler, decided to try and expand the Empire. Eskorpians became angry, and decided to from an alliance with each other, and attack the Empire. The Stellion Dynasty was overthrown, and the Eskorpians ruled with an Iron Fist. They enslaved peaceful tribes, made rules limiting people's freedoms, and sacked villages just out of the Empire's borders. The Stellions relocated towards the North, and hoped for the arrival of new generations of dynasty descendants. But, due to the late showings of attributes that make up a true descendant, the Emperor finds out the descendant's identity and kills him before he has a chance to lead an army again. But, Gex, the hero mentioned above, showed attributes at such a young age that it gave him time to train, and leave before Imperial Guards of the empire get to him. The Imperial Guards consist of 4 highly trained warriors with unique powers. The main point of the rp is for Gex to gather enough strong warriors to go against the Emperor, the Imperial Guards, and the Royal Army. Rp-ers undertake as one of the warriors Gex gathers, with their own powers and their own specialties, making them an important piece for the whole army. The rp itself is part sandbox, meaning you can travel by yourself, until Gex arrives and tells you the plan. Before that, you can have your own adventures killing monsters, finishing unfinished business through your own history, and/or trying to challenge the Emperor by yourself (which is suicide)!

What Mods Should Look for in a Character Sheet:
- Balance: Advantages and Disadvantages
Balance is good for an rp-er. Although the limit is 100, you can still reach 99 in any of them. Make sure though that you mods, scan through for them. If they have 99 Attack for example, try and look for slow speed and low defense or low energy level. If stamina is 10/10, or reflexes is 10/10, it's fine. Balance is essential. Think of it like attribute points. If you fill up one stat to almost full, you get only a few points left to add to the others. Think of these when accepting character sheets, and if you're unsure, add them as undecided.
*more coming when necessary*
INFORMATION ABOUT HOW THE CHARACTER SHEETS WORK:
-Energy levels are how much energy powers you can use. 0 doesn't mean bad, it means they can't use special attacks, but only physical attacks.
-Elements are only filled out when you have energy levels.
-If your character is listed as super muscular, please don't give him a fast speed. It doesnt work.
-Reflexes are how well you dodge attacks.
-Intelligence is how skilled your character is at fighting.
-Stamina is based on how long you can endure fighting or travelling.

CHARACTER SHEET TEMPLATES:
*Note that 100 is equal to god-like. 500 for energy level is also god-like, and most warriors are close to that, 60 to 97. Normal citizens have about 20-45 out of 100, and their reflexes and stamina range from 4-6. Warriors have 4-9 average. 10 in stamina and reflexes is NOT god-like, but a skill.

After an epic battle won against his fallen brother, he marched to the Royal Castle, and crowned himself. For years he had ruled the Empire with an iron fist, and was unsurpassed in skill and power.

Maku'un is known to have a lair somewhere in the desert that he uses as a laboratory where he makes minions from corpses of his enemies.

Hero name: Her codename is “Fallen” (Real name is “Kuna’ne” (pronounced Koo-nah-neh))
Species: Eskorpian (more skorpion like)
Energy Level: 430/500
Energy Color: Crimson
Bio: From the time she was old enough to understand how the Eskorpian Dynasty worked and how it came to power, Kuna’ne has never been happy with how things were. For a time (several years), she let herself be comfortably raised by her parents in the rich Eskorpian city. Once she felt that she could survive on her own (at 16 years old, in human years), she left the city to live and train on her own in the desert as a rebel, a traitor to her own people, hence her self-given codename, “Fallen”, like a fallen angel. Now she lives as a nomad, traveling to where the other races reside as she awaits the day she can find others who have the same goal of overthrowing the Eskorpian Dynasty in mind. What she lacks in strength, defense (she uses cloth armor with medium-thick leather with a breastplate being the only part that is metal so she isn’t weighed down), and stamina, she more than makes up for with her speed, crazy-fast reflexes, and her high energy.
Armor: Fabric and leather armor; metal breastplate.
Weapon: Short sword
Other: She is an Eskorpian rebel
Hero name: Kawauso
Species: Annimon: Otter
Energy Level: 100/500
Energy Color: orange.
Bio: Kawauso, or Kawa, had always liked being alone. Ever since she could swim, she stayed by herself. Away from the playing animals. Once she was old enough, she left home. Though she was sad to say goodbye to her mother and twelve other younger brothers, she couldn't wait for adventure. Soon Kawa lost her shyness when she saw a poor mother and child, huddled outside. Trying to stay warm. She remembered hearing stories about Robin Hood. She strived to be like him, taking from the rich, and giving to the poor.
Armor: Handmade, flimsy leather chestplate. She wears a green, cap to hide her face.
Weapon: Since she is poor, Kawa has only one weapon. A short sythe with her name carved into it. It stays hidden on her back, were it is easly reachable.
Other: Kawa has piercing gold eyes.
Hero name: Apophis Imperio-Carta
Species: Avarrian, Raven
Energy Level: 200/500
Energy Color: Black
Bio: Apophis was born to a family whose very code of honor was founded on principles akin to those of Ancient Greek Sparta: That the strong would rule, and to show weakness was to be unworthy of life. He was the runt of the litter when he was born, and this resulted in something rather simple, but cruel, very cruel, in fact. He was secured to a mountaintop, his feet stapled to the ground. It took him nearly three days to free himself from the bindings, primarily using his beak, but he was free. Melted snow was his only source of water for those few days, and he was forced to forgo most food, eating only what few grasses that grew there. He descended the mountain, and soon, he was truly surviving. He never went home. And while his brothers and sisters merely learned combat, Apophis learned survival; he learned how to live, how to truly strive, and how to fight new things every day, and truly taste victory, and blood. He has long forgone his given surname, and merely goes by Apothis. Furthermore, he is both a savage, and a renegade, one who has refused to settle down, for anything, constantly searching for some sort of challenge, a sort of instinctive need for combat and challenge.
Appearance: Apophis takes clear the shape of a raven, not holding any sort of anthropomorphism, although he stands at 4' in height. He has feathers black as to be the moonless night, and an irisdecent beak, still black in color, as well as talons. He is well developed, obviously trained to be a fast, long-distance flier, and his compact, lean muscles show it. His eyes shine from him, however, as they are quite well an olive green in color, defying the general scheme of his coloration. His feet have permenant scars in them, and he walks with a limp beyond just the fact that he was not designed for walking. He does not see his lack of any humanoid form as a problem, but as an asset--people are more likely to misjudge him, thinking him not intelligent, albeit he is rather large.
Armor: Apophis goes unarmored.
Weapon: Apophis is armed purely with his natural weapons, honed to razor-sharp tips, are his claws, which are paired with a predatory beak.
Other: Eh, I had envisioned the character before noticing all you anthropomorphs...throw me off my never mentioning any sort of anthropomorphy...oh well, I wonder what shall come of this bio. Madness, perhaps, for all you humanoids, to face a being quite nearly the size of a short human, who would quite willingly kill you for food...I'm so sick minded...
Hero name: Gritch
Species: Stellion, gecko
Energy Level: 12/500
Energy Color: Dull Orange?
Bio: If there is one thing Gritch is good at doing it is wandering. Born in the desert to wanderers Gritch grew into the way of life with gusto. He learned to travel great distances on foot with only himself as well as to fight and hunt with only his spears and shield so that he could survive alone. Once he came of age he did what all of his kin did, he struck out alone with only a blessing from his parents. Since then he has been a ranger, hunting alone and watching civilisation stumble about from a far and from up close, he has helped people travel as well as been a guide, for the right price. Most places he goes his hard-bitten appearance and silent and grim determination have given people the almost instant realisation he was a ranger and given him grudging respect and peace, especially from thieves.
Appearance: http://www.visualart.ro/test/data/media/110/lizard_man.jpg Faded colours of beige and brown, mostly desert colours.
Armor: As shown in image, excepting shield all are dull coloured Damascus-steel.
Weapon: One handed short spear. The tip is magically enchanted to induce fire, though it rarely works as the enchantment has faded considerably. The tip usually just glows orange.
A wooden round shield and a bag of throwing spears
Other: Likes to wander, is unusually tall
