The Awakened Earth
The Awakened Earth is a a modern fantasy group that is designed for people of likened minds to join together and have fun. Modern Fantasy is a wonderful genre of the RP community and this room is designed to cater to all those needs for a fun room to hang out and RP in while creating wondrous, intricate, and complex stories.
The Main plot of the room will be explained below as well as the rules of the room. Take a while to stay and read everything. I promise you it will be worth the read.
The year is 2020, and the Earth has undergone a massive change. A New Age has begun and it started on the fateful day of December 23rd, 2012.
It was a day that human beings remember well because of a superstition that the world was supposed to end on that day. But as humans, they often never read the fine print and only focus on what they fear the most. The Mayan texts clearly started that the current Age of the Earth of end and a new one would begin from the ashes of the old.
On that day, The sun was showing more activity than ever before. Solar Prominences were reaching a levels never before seen in human history and scientists worse fears came to pass. A solar flare of massive proportions erupted from the Sun's surface, racing towards earth with immense velocity. A Super flare. The world could on watch as doom sped towards the planet. But then something happened. Something impossible. To this day it is an event that everyone called The Awakening. The Earth began to erupt in immense amounts of energy. From the ground, the oceans, the trees, even human beings and animals. This mass of pure energy formed a barrier over the entire planet as the Super Flare struck. Entire continents shook and cracked, the oceans boiled and the air burned with solar radiation. But the earth in the end survived. More than a 1/3rd of the human population was lost in the calamity, but the human race had lived on.
But that was not all. Because of this boundless energy had been released on the planet, strange things began to happen. Humans who never had any extraordinary abilities started to exhibit them en mass. Wild, feral and pure magic was making itself prominent throughout the world. But the real shock was when the stories and legends of old started to to life. Things that human being only thought were alive in stories were turning out to be very real indeed. Elves, Fae, dwarves, and many other magical races started to come up from the depths of the planet, the veil that was placed around the world now pierced for all to see.
It was at that moment that it was explained to the human race that these older races always existed, lurking behind the scenes and existing in secret. But with the calamity of the Super flare nearly destroying all life upon the earth and the events of The Awakening, something had caused the old magic that shielded the magical races of the Earth to shatter and Mana was flowing freely over the planet. Why this event occurred, neither side was sure about and it would become one of the greatest mysteries to arise in the Earth's history. Human beings were welcomed into the Council of Elders that day so that in time, all races from that moment on would come to live in harmony. A new age of the earth had begun.
The New World Order

To become a Guardian one must train for years and at the end of the training one must undergo The Guardianship Trials.

-The Circle of the Magi-
The Circle of The Magi is a worldwide educational college of collective knowledge. It was founded a year after The Awakening to address the growing problem of humans and other races developing new powers that they could not control. It was causing a lot of problems the planet over and the youth of the new age would need direction and guidance. So the greatest known magical and spiritual minds came together to found the Circle. It houses the world's more brightest minds and it is a nexus of thought with the goal of making the world better and richer through the pursuit of education and knowledge a whole.

-The Nexus of Science-
The Nexus of Science is the planet-wide collection of scientific minds that work together to study the new state of the world. Within the aftermath of the Awakening, a lot of new elements and forms of energy were left behind and even new ones were born. Their creed is that with the coming together of all the races in harmony, the path of the new age will lead them in not only the greatest advances in magic but also in medicine, techonology, and scientific exploration. To be excepted into the fold of the Nexus is a great honor and the people who work under it's banner are regarded with some of the highest respect much like the people of The Circle, and the Guardian Order.

Fruits, Vegitables, Animals that are edible, and even new metals, workable materials and resources. Many jobs are are created with the help of the Grand Commerce and with all the limitless possibilies that could be attained it is without a doubt a great asset to the planet over. There are centers for the Market all over the world, With the central hub in the newly reformed Northern America.
Current Room Plot Setting
Ever so often as we gain members and things progress, the current theme of the room will change. Think of it as like an RP setting for the room and grows as changes like a Dungeons and Dragons Tabletop Campaign.
The Shadow War
The Rules of the New Earth
Below you will find the rules of the group. Please take the time to read and understand all of them.
#1) This isn't a parking lot for your characters. If you are in here to idle, and not on a name in the group for too long, you'll get kicked, don't cry over it, this is your warning. However, idling to observe and join or possibly make a name for the room is perfectly okay, just run it by a mod or admin first . Also this group is for Original Characters only. No Canons. Period.
#2) If your profile has highly sexually graphic images visible, it is somewhat allowed to a point. Links to such images are perfectly fine, though. Also, try to keep any other sex-based content to a managble level. Sexual RP is allowed to happen in the room. It is a natural part of life (Even in a fantasy one). But remember that this is not a smut room. All sexual activity will be monitored to a point make sure things stay manageable. If you are unclear of how riske your images are, just ask. We will confere with you on the matter.
#3) Respect other people's boundaries, that's just common sense, right? And please don't use racial or sexist slurs in here, it's better for everyone that way! Do not attack any user for any reason at all - if there is an issue, discuss it in PMs, and if it can't be solved, then contact a member of staff and we will handle it confidentially and quietly.
#4) Generally, the room is IC RP roughly 95% of the time. Just keep this in mind when you enter, and be respectful of anything that may be going on. This room is built for serious RP and OOC should be kept to a minimum when major RP is going on.
#5) We're big on respect in this room. And in the spirit of that, we ask that you don't try to troll our room, or come in with joke names; serious characters only please. This goes for users as well - do not attack other users for having their character/characters you do not like, nor do you attack the staff for any reason. They are only trying to do their job. If you have a problem with a mod or feel a mod has acted out of turn, contact Murgetsu-Sama.
#6) If you have any sort of room ideas, such as main group chat plot roleplays, please contact one of the admins or the moderators. We are open to ideas, but we are also open to artistic liberty with said ideas as well. We love ideas, but we also want to make sure that they fit and have common sense with what is going on with current events.
#7) Under any circumstances, do not ask for a modship position. This will result in the warning - three strike system. If you are wanted as a mod, the admins will ask you to be one.
#8) We reserve the right to kick, remove, and ban any person we see fit if they are breaking the rules -- be it through godmoding, vicious attack, breaking the rules, or simply not reading the rules at all.
#9) We follow a strict 'Check your Drama at the Door' policy. This means all OOC drama should not be dragged IC, and all IC drama should not be dragged OOC. This is a roleplay chat for fun, if you can't keep unnecessary, non-plot related drama out of here, it'll go as such [After being warned]:
Kicked from the room [Strike 1]
Temporary 3 Day Ban [Strike 2]
Permanent Ban [Strike 3]
Please let it be clear, these strikes are not here to give you free chances to cause trouble. Depending on the severity of your infraction, you might be immediately kicked or banned. So don't cry about steps being skipped if it happens. Also, this isn't something of a second or third chance based system. Once a banning has happened, unless there is an overwhelming appeal for it (80% of the active group, not just active members in the chat at the time, or the entire mod team). A group meeting will be held to discuss the next course of action, however, if it is overturned, what is done is done - no one has the right to say otherwise if the severity of the offense calls for it.
