The world used to be a magical place, rife with mystical creatures and arcane happenstance, but with the colonization and constant advancements of humanity, the magic had faded, and anything mystical had evolved to ordinary animals as an effect of such. After colonizing the entirety of the earth, humans were still not satisfied. And after many years, the majority of the population left the earth in ships, bound for new frontiers. With humankind gone for so many long years, the earth recuperated, and the magical energies that had faded away were now pumping through all living things stronger than ever before. Time lapse 70 odd years and what’s left of human kind (the ones who wished to see their home planet) returns, but not too the planet they once knew. Massive forests, magical beats and all manner of fantasy races inhabit the new earth and the humans were initially in awe. Until they discovered humankind’s utter inability to wield magical energies. Then, no longer was magic a wonder, it was a threat. And being the rational species they are, humans came to a decision. If they couldn’t have magic, no one could. And so began the Great Magic War, a devastating yet short war between humankind and all the magical races of the world. The outcome was an obvious one, and almost all of humankind was wiped out, and those that weren’t were cast out of society and shunned in public. Now many more years have passed and all remnants of humanities great technologies and vast cities are but a memory and the world has reverted to a second mideaval age. All is peaceful… Or not. Tensions rise between the races, each stating their claim to a central rule, kingdoms picking sides and others betrayed. Meanwhile, the sorry remnants of humanity have sparked a covert guerrilla movement, once again desperate to take back their home. And all the while, unbeknownst to anyone, a sealed gate opens deep beneath the earth, and another ancient demonic race begins their advance upon civilization, taken by their carnal impulse to leave no survivors.
Basically, as a rundown. Humans are endangered outcasts who wish to be the top dogs of their planet again, the magical races each wish to instill their respective leaders yo rule over every race (a ruler to rule all rulers, if you will), and demons have emerged from an ancient prison to mess some shit up. In this RP, you can be whichever race you want. A demon, a human, or one of many magical beings. Humans will be devoid of magic (though if you give me aa convincing method that they’d be able to bypass being unable to hold arcane energies inside themselves, I’m game), magical races can have a bevy of creative magics whether violent or recreational, and demonkind is raw evil. Blood magic, shadow magic, puppet magic, voodoo, etc.
Any ages 14 and up allowed. Since it’s a fantasy world, anthro animals are just as plausible as dragons, so you can choose a furry character as well.
