Ascension
The Immortal Emperor

The Story

Welcome to the lands of Athevna, covered by sand and the sun, these lands arbor a civilization that prospers in great power and culture. Long ago these deserts were occupied by nomads and tribes who would quarrel against one another for territory and resources. Until one day one man appeared and took control over them, thanks to his great charisma and power he was able to unite all in this land. Under his control Athevna was born and the man would be called the Immortal Emperor. This was 200 years ago, through his leadership over the land this civilization prospered considerably.

However, no one has seen the Immortal Emperor for almost a century now and some of the populace have began to doubt if he's still alive. Must believe that the emperor is resting in his grand palace, but in his absence a resistance has been built, known as the Rebels, they cause all form of problems that directly target the Immortal Emperor's control over the land.

You are mercenaries who are hired for all kinds of work, some of you will enjoy, others you will regret, but ultimately fate will determine where you go in this time of doubt.

Athevna
Spoiler:
 


Factions

Immortal Emperor

Everything and anything in Athevna is under the Immortal Emperor's control. So long as you walk on these lands you are welcome, however only the capital Vavel is trully under the Emperor's control. Those of these factions can be typicaly be sumarized as, the military, the nobles and the people.

Rebels

The organization that question the Emperor's power and see their right to strip him of it. Their location is unknown and their members are undistinguiable, however it is commonly accepted that they are in every city and town.

Aimatos Lords

Due they belong to the Immortal Emperor they operate independently of him. The lords of Aimatos, a mining camp, they are the lords of the underworld and the market. They control most of all trade routes and are notorious for their slave market. Some of these slaves aren't even from Athevna

Mercenaries

A small city called Miros hosts most mercenaries of these lands, although looked down for it's high number of mercenaries, it is the second safest city precisely thanks to these mercenaries. It is normally called by civilians as the City of Dreams because of all the people that travel to this city searching for the dream job.

Dolofonos

An old tribe that remained independent from the Kingdom of Athevna. The inhabitants are considered to be the best of hunters and mainly survive through hunting as even it’s water source comes from the blood of their preys. They are easily recognized by the permanent black paint that they spread over their body as a ritual for adulthood. A slave of a Dolof is the most valuable type of slave. Their culture also differs greatly from the rest.

Concepts

Magic

Magic, sorcery, witchcraft or whatever you wish to call it is the art of imposing one's will into the world utilizing magical energy as a fuel. There are various forms of magic in all over the world however Athevna is known for it's complex variety in magic. Magic in Athevna works in a system of belief, so long as the user believes himself capable of performing such feats, he will achieve it. This requires a strong will and confidence to believe oneself of controling reality. As one can guess, those with weak wills will have difficulty using magic, if not outright impossible.

Elemental Magic

As one can guess it this category includes all forms of magic that involve around messing around with the elements. What are the elements you ask? Water, Fire, Wind, Earth and Lightning. These type of magic is the basic of all Athevna magic, without them majority of Athevna would not be what it is. That said these type of magic although straight forward can be quite dangerous at time as they are more powerful when close to their elemental, example: a water magician will be more powerful near a river than in the middle of the desert.

Athevna Magic

These are all other form of magic that result as variations from the elemental magic. They are rather diverse, existing almost hundred different forms, however most commons tend to be Healing, Hypnosis, Light, Dark among others. Due to the way magic works, to impose one's will into the world, there is almost a limitless different forms of Athevna magic.

Dolofonos Magic

The Dolofonos Magic works on a complete different system to the typical magic in Athevna, belief is not require in their magic, thus anyone in their bloodline can use it regardless of the will or power. Instead they use a system of sacrifices and destruction, providing materials to be destroyed to reach a desired result.

Stats System

Mental

Your mental prowess, your capacity to control magic and resist it's effects, a very important stat if you wish to have powerful magic, but ignorable if you simply wish to be a combat oriented type.
A single point in mental will allow you to pick a single elemental magic, with it you will be to control existing forms of that elemental at small scales. It will give you weak resistance to magic effects.
Two points will allow you to control said element at a larger scale, while also able to create small quantities of that element. You may also instead make your own custom magic, this I will leave for your creativity. It will give you average resistance to magic effects.
Three points will allow you free control of said element and also able to create that element in large quantities, you may also have an additional magic to support, be it custom or elemental. It will give you excellent resistance to magic effects.

Physical

Your physical prowess, your capacity to control your body in both strength, speed and endurance, a very important stat if you wish to be a powerful fighter, but ignorable if you don't want to be fighting head on.
A single point will make you an average civilian's worth, you're neither good or bad.
Two points will make you peak human, you can run faster than anyone, carry things nobody else can and endure pain no one would.
Three points will make superhuman, at this point your faster than the eye can see, strong enough to lift boulders and tough enough to take on a monster alone.

Speech

Your charisma and leadership capabilities. How good are you at talking people into and out of stuff, how good are you at manipulating, and how good are you at resisting other's leadership.
A single point make you an average human, you wont question one with a bigger stat then you, you are easy to control and listen to orders.
Two points make a competent leader, you can convince most to do your actions, at the same time few can actually order you around without you allowing them.
Three points make you a natural born leader, you exist to command and rule others, no one can disobey an order from you so long as it is does not conflict with them, you might even be capable of convincing people of killing themselves(joking).

Perception

How good are you at noticing details. The stat that allows you to perceive things other normally cannot.
A single point will make you an average human, you barely notice the obvious much less small details.
Two points will make you capable to noticing most details that happen in your surroundings and to same degree human's actions.
Three points make an expert in details, you will find all details, be it from animals or humans or even up coming weather.


Abilities

Supernatural aspects that rare individuals or communities possess, said abilities are passive extras or improvements that your body is capable of doing naturally, though there are rare exceptions where abilities can be activated instead of always being active. Note that abilities are not common, they are rare and there should be some explanation as to where said abilities were gained.

To be honest... I am not so sure about tweaking the history...

So here is the character that you already have approved

Reading it, i have concluded that you need to make these changes.

one, in your history it says you can teleport. Although there's nothing stating you can do that in your magic. i'll just say it, no teleporting.

next. change this

Dolofonos Blood: The blood of the hunter tribe, a tribe that survives through hunting results in it's people becoming monster hunters, unlike others, they do not train other to hunt, they are born as natural hunters. This grants them a strong sense of smell, hearing and sight, they are also resistant to poisons and illness. They also have a longer longevity than other people.

to this

Half-Blood: Has the blood of the Dolofonos running through his veins. Possess the advantages of Dolofonos Blood, but on a lower scale.


then stats wise. If I remember correctly I gave you 2 more points because I was impressed by the story. However that was a long time ago and after reading the backstory. I'm going to give you the stat sheet your character deserves for his backstory.

change to this

Stats:
Mental: 3
Physical: 2
Speech: 1
Perception: 2

i will give you an explaination as to why those stats.

Mental, you clearly have shown that your character is a monster with his magic, capable of even stopping a magical weapon from attacking. So this will keep at 3

Physical I have reduced it to 2 because of your character not having a good fighting trainer. The father was not a fighter and although the Mother was a Dolofonos which was normaly worse than monsters, she did spend most of her years as a slave, thus by that time she should be severly rusty and weak compared to the one that hunt all the time. 2 is not bad though, it still alows you fight the animals he did. But not the monsters that are around the dessert.

Speech i reduced it to 1 because your character doesnt seem to have much experience dealing with other, leaving in the mountains and what not.

Perception is fine.

I know it sucks to be downgraded, but please understand that as your character was, he was better than most npcs I had while being younger and having gone through less than them.

All right, here are some rough character drafts.

Description
Name: Echidna
Gender: Female
Age: 28
Appearance:
Spoiler:
 
History: Not much is known about Echidna, except that spread by rumor. Some say she is the young widow of a man killed by the expansion of the Immortal King's forces. Others say she was once a captain in the King's forces herself. Rumors spread that she is obsessed with collecting rare and valuable weapons. All that people know for certain is that once she appeared in the guild as a mercenary, none were able to equal her. After establishing a notorious reputation, Echidna had the luxury of picking and choosing jobs that suited her tastes, all of which seem to originate in areas with rumors of valuable weapons. She has earned the alias "Edgemaster."
Personality: Sarcastic and cutting, Echidna needs no friends and tends to show that. She can also be described as playful, in the way that a cat is playful with mice. She also seems to have a fascination for weapons - both for their lore and their uses.
Occupation: Mercenary

Skills
Magic: Wind - Echidna uses wind to augment her swords, extending the reach of their slash, and to maneuver herself in battle to increase her speed and agility
Abilities: Eye of the Mind - an innate sense for perceiving the best options in battle, refined through many battles to an exceptional sixth sense
Equipment:
Venom and Viper - two kodachi with the center of the blades hollowed out to improve the aerodynamics, making them somewhat brittle to blunt strikes but exceptionally fast at slashing.
Phobos - a thin, short katana used for foes that require a stronger, though no less refined, approach. It is a cursed blade that feeds off of the fear of its targets.
Unnamed stash of weapons - Echidna has acquired many weapons in her travels, kept stashed in her secret lair, though they rarely see use.

Stats
Mental: 2
Physical: 3
Speech: 2
Perception: 2

--------------------

Description
Name: Viser
Gender: Male
Age: 26
Appearance:
Spoiler:
 
History: An aspiring alchemist, Viser tutored from a young age under the renowned Argus the Wise, learning many of the sage's great secrets. Though he mourned the sudden death of the great mage several years later, Viser determined to use the knowledge his master had accumulated in order to rebuild the world. Though often preoccupied with his studies, he will occasionally take up requests at the Guild to acquire finances and ingredients for his research.
Personality: Viser is a focus and determined young man, always more focused on results and getting to the point than in wasting time with trivialities and niceties. However, he displays kindness to all those he knows and is always eager to speak of plans and dreams for a better world.
Occupation: Alchemist; part-time mercenary

Skills
Magic: Alchemy - the ability to put magic to use in the creation of powerful items and machinery. Ether - the ability to manipulate magic in its most raw, unrefined state, a key aspect for mastering alchemy
Abilities:
Equipment: Conduit - a short sword more akin to a wand that absorbs, channels, and dissipates magical energy.

Stats
Mental: 3
Physical: 1
Speech: 3
Perception: 1

I was thinking of making a character with this guy and having him flirt with Thevana every time he came around.

Well, I wouldn't use them all at once. More like rotate them to serve my mood.

So... she's not picky? Or she just isn't into anyone?

If I'm interpreting correctly, she just enjoys the attention of flirting, but doesn't intend to take it anywhere?

All right, here are some rough character drafts.

Description
Name: Roland
Gender: Male
Age: 38
Appearance:
Spoiler:
 
History: Since he was young, Roland always dreamed of seeing the world and discovering the pleasures and wonders of every realm. He firmly believed that experiencing life was something you needed to do with every fiber of your being. He lived in different towns and countries, picking up on their cultures and ways, enjoying their delicacies and women. He picked up various sword styles and even learned of the magic of sigils from a renowned hermit in a far off land. He returned to his home land and became a mercenary, hoping for some opportunities to make money and continue experiencing life abroad.
Personality: Roland is a boisterous sort, the type who always looks for a good fight, a good drink, or a good woman. Preferably all three. Loyal to a fault and one to never give up, no matter the odds, he makes for a valuable ally. His propensity for getting into trouble, however, might make one second guess that. Though not a book-smart man, he has a natural inclination for understanding people, which makes flirting that much easier for him. His looks don't hurt either.
Occupation: Mercenary

Skills
Magic: Reinforcement - Through the power of the sigils inscribed in his flesh, Roland can increase his own physical abilities, be they strength, endurance, or speed. He has ones inscribed permanently on his shoulders for endurance, his forearms for strength, and his legs for speed. He often will add temporary ones as the situation requires. As they draw on his magical potential for use, attempting too many can be quite dangerous.
Abilities: Eyes of Deceit - an innate perception for trickery and deception, be they through natural means or magical (though by no means full-proof)
Equipment:
Titan - a blade made of an incredibly durable, undefined black metal, said to be impossible to break.  

Stats
Mental: 2
Physical: 2
Speech: 1
Perception: 3

Roland's history is missing?

otherwise he's fine, if not annoying, Thevana will find him troublesome just for that ability



as for the missions, initialy they will be open in the sense that I will give X number of mission to alow people to get confortable with their character, however eventualy I will try to join everyone into a party for the major plot.
