For more information on the Island Nations, [URL=http://www.otakuboards.com/showthread.php?p=691950#post691950]Click Here[/URL]
Story- The Runes of Power. Such things are craven by the rich and powerful because of their unseen ability to cause people to flock to their banners like Seagulls. Those that weild such objects of immense power are those that alter history and the course of the world. But Death is what awaits those that weild their awesome power.

There are people that track these Runes known as Rune Hunters; those that track them for moral or immoral reasons. A certain group of them; The Death Stalkers who are obsessed with finding the rune that is colorfully referred to as the Massacre Rune which is said to have destroyed a whole island city. Rune Hunters like the Death Stalkers are hated by the people of the Island States, which is known to the east as the Forgotten Nations, because of their often unorthodox methods of finding what they seek by means of Torture, Blackmail or worse.

Enter the bearers of such powerful magic; Those that are hunted for what they possess and are forced to keep the runes sealed inside of their bodies until it either frees itself or it is used. When the rune is released it will consume everything in its path until it finds a new bearer or it returns to its former bearer.
Take on the role of a group of people that are forced into this underground war; People that are cast out for defending a friend who is found to be a bearer of the Massacre Rune after bearing named the murderer of a prestigous family. They are now constantly hounded by mercenaries and the shadowy Death Stalkers.

Their fate is in your hands; Only you can defend the defenders of the Massacre Rune from those that would exploit it.

Name: [COLOR=SlateGray]Hallden Schulen[/COLOR]
Age: [COLOR=SlateGray]17[/COLOR]
Gender: [COLOR=SlateGray]Male[/COLOR]
Race: [COLOR=SlateGray]Human[/COLOR]
Class: [COLOR=SlateGray]Military Strategiest/ Trainee Swordsman [/COLOR]

Special skills:[COLOR=SlateGray] He is the wielder of the Massacre Rune but he doesn't use its power because he understands that its usage will result in his death. He is an average fighter but is acknowledged as the next Master Strategiest because of his firm grasp of tactics and being from the Schulen family of Tacticians.
Weapons: [COLOR=SlateGray]Hallden wields a long, thin sword competently although he will rarely fight as he is a thinker rather than a warrior. [/COLOR]

Appearence: [URL=http://www.suikosource.com/images/chars/t/trishtan01.jpg]Hallden[/URL]

Magic: [COLOR=SlateGray]Hallden uses magic deprived from minor elemental runes to heal wounds or injure foes by analysing a foe than using the corresponding elemental magic.[/COLOR]

[COLOR=SlateGray]Coming from a secluded background; Hallden has always lived a sheltered life as the second child of the great strategiest Dailo Schulden and as the only son of her. As a child he was obsessed with reading his mothers old war journals and studying old strategic maps which was why he was named heir to the name of Master Strategiest when he would be able to prove himself. At the age of fourteen; he was sent to the Military Academy in Southport to refine his skills as a strategiest and as a swordsman.

As he grew older and became better known as a strategiest he began to drift away from his intense studies as a warrior and begun to both study and collect runes and runic weapons. As a result; He was named the captian of a small patrol ship which, after a series of unfortunate events, was attacked by a pirate group who were led by the bearer of the Massacre Rune. After the pirates attacked; Hallden put his knowledge of strategies to good use and defeated the pirates by using the smaller ships superiour weapons by causing the ship to catch fire.

However; The Rune bearer and his elite guard boarded Halldens ship and Hallden engaged the Rune Bearer in a duel where clever tactics once again prevailed. The death of the Bearer released the rune and a huge flare of light occured with Hallden being targeted by it; He was the new bearer of the Massacre Rune.
While his crippled ship limped back to Southport, A Dark vessel had arrived at the scene of the battle after observing the light and following the Pirates that had attacked. Although Hallden didn't know it, These were Death Stalkers and now he was their prey.

After arriving back in Southport and being reprimanded for not taking the advice of his second in command to retreat; Hallden was put on patrol duty in the town of Southport until his graduation from the academy in a few weeks. During his final week; Hallden saw a handful of shady looking people entering the home of the town leader. He knew that they couldn't be the people that lived there and investigated the house. In there he found the corpses of the two children of the family while the town lord was held by the throat in the middle of the room; The figure holding him demanding to know where Hallden was. The figure noticed Halldens approach, dropped the leader to the ground and slit his throat in one movemet while turning to face Hallden.

Before the two faced off; a disturbance was occuring downstairs and town guards entered the house forcefully which drew Halldens attention away from the figure one moment then his foe was gone. The guards entered the room to see a bloody dagger lying on the ground at Halldens feet while being surrounded by corpses which were covered with cuts. Hallden was taken into custody and is now awaiting his trial.[/COLOR]

*Sorry this has taken so long; I've been distracted a lot.*

[B]Name:[/B] Ash Kilnsmoke
[B]Age: [/B] The human equivalent would be around 21-23
[B]Gender:[/B] Female
[B]Race:[/B] Dwarf
[B]Class:[/B] Blacksmith
[B]Special Skills: [/B] Self proclaimed best wood carver currently outside of Thunderhelm and knows how to make one nasty spirit, her favorite drink.
[B]Weapon:[/B] her trusty ax, Hanmarhed
[B]Appearance:[/B] Short with all the general traditional traits of her race, Ash has a light auburn hint to her otherwise cranberry hair. She often disguises her voice a bit to fool others into thinking her a male, so that the typical woman stereotype would not play a factor. Standing at a whopping 3'11" and a smidgen on the stocky look, she has the entire prowess of a warrior.
[B]Biography:[/B] The Dwarven female was traveling with a companion of hers and best friend. Both adventurers. Her friend had come into possession a while back of a minor elemental rune with no significant power. The two didn't even know which element it gained its power from.

A small band of Rune Hunters approached them in a tavern and made clear what they were after. Ash had challenged the men to a drinking contest of the strongest class. Of course, the dwarf easily drank them under the table. What they didn't plan for was another group waiting outside in ambush a bit away. Attacked separately, the hunters killed Ash's friend and took the rune. The Dwarf traveled alone for a while, ending up in Southport where she 'settled down' for a while.
