The Wilderness Wars {Remake RP}

1. If I have not RPed with you before, PM me before you join.

2. Obey the main forum rules.

3. No Mary Sues or Gary Stus. Or I will hit you.

4. This RP is about myth creatures, not about deities so please don't create any deity characters. Myth creatures are the following, but not limited to: Fairies, Kitsunes, Unicorns, Mermaids, Dragons, Nekos, Brownies, Elves. Please stick to the mythological descriptions of said creatures rather than those in books and films, with one exception; you can give your myth creature a human-like form, however they can not look entirely like humans. For examples, Nekos and Kitsunes are animals that can take human shape, however they always have animal tails. Fairies might be able to have a large, human shape, but would still have their wings. Remember that the myth creatures don't want to blend in, they want to take over the world!

5. This RP has no character form; instead, describe your character in your primary post. By the way, this is the first group to use the newly opened door, but not the last; you can introduce new characters later on if you so wish. There can be human characters, however none of them are on the myth creatures' side.


Hundreds of years ago, our world was a very different place. People believed in different things, and feared different events. Creatures of myth roamed through our world, travelling from their own universe to ours through special doors. A farmer's wife might fear the wrath of the fairies if she didn't leave them out a bowl of milk and a few slices of bread every night. Sailors told tales about the mermaids who populated the ocean, combing out their long hair and singing as they arranged their tails on rocks, trailing their hands in the sea and weaving garlands out of seawe'ed and precious jewels to wrap around their bodies and place in their hair. Many a traveller through the Scottish highlands fell prey to the malicious water kelpies, who offered rides accross the lochs only to treacherously drown their riders halfway accross, and many a Japanese man gasped in horror as he danced with his new bride on their wedding night and caught a glimpse of a fox tail beneath her volumenous skirts, showing her to be not the demure human girl he thought her to be, but instead a kitsune bent on mischief. Dragons lurked in mountainous caves, and unicorns hid in the deep forests. Because the people of our world believed in these creatures, so they existed.

Now though, the world is changing. Many new events have happened since the days of yore when the myth creatures freely travelled between their world and ours. People now scoff at the idea of fairies, mermaids and others, and also at anyone who is foolish enough to even entertain belief for a moment. Modernisation is key, and old ideas and beliefs are soon discarded in favour of the new ones. The myth creatures faded from our world as the various paths, doors and chasms all closed, barring entrance to our world due to the new disbelief of its people in the creatures of myth. Stories of myth creatures became the legends of yesterday, bedtime stories for children at night, to be read with pleasure but only as fantasy tales, not believable and certainly not real. The myth creatures resigned themselves to remain in their world, a world of jewel bright seas, rolling hills, craggy mountains and airy skies. Life went on as usual in our world too, until one day.

A woman named Ryna Georges had studied mythology for a long time. She wanted more than anything to rule the world, and chose to use the forgotten creatures of myth to help her do so. Ryna read through the old books and scrolls until she happened quite by chance upon an old ritual created to open a door to that other universe. She spent the next month preparing for this spell; getting all the ingredients for the ritual fire, and creating the circle that would mean that she'd hold complete dominion over the myth creatures, therefore making herself their mistress and being able to send them as her minions to conquer the world in order that she should rule it as absolute queen. After setting up the spell, and lighting the ceremonial fire, Ryna began the spell. She chanted in order the four long verses that were needed for opening the door, and she had her circle in order to enact mastery over the creatures. But then, nothing seemed to happen. It was an anticlimax after all Ryna had hoped for, and in disgust she put out the fire and destroyed the circle. This was a very foolish thing to do; after all, not everything happens with a dramatic flourish.

For the door between the worlds was indeed open... and a group of myth creatures had already made the journey from their world to ours. They were appalled at what they saw. For the world of today was a very different place to the world that they remembered from the old days. The humans seemed hell bent on destroying the world and destroying each other. Animals were becoming extinct. Devastating bombs had been created for the sole purpose of the destruction of entire races. The land, sea and air were all polluted, and no-one seemed to care enough to try and stop it. Cars, lorries and vans replaced the vehicles drawn by beasts of burden, and high powered electric trains had replaced the old steam trains. All of these killed several humans per week, and no-one seemed to care about the danger. The myth creatures were angry. Not only had they been forgotten and their reverence and respect abandoned, but the humans seemed intent on destroying the entire world, even themselves. The myth creatures felt that the only thing they could do would be to wrest control of the world from the humans and save them from themselves.


One of the first group to go to what she always thought of as "the human's world", Kaori was a kitsune. She had long black hair, dark green eyes and creamy pale skin in her human form; in her fox form, she had red fur with a white chest and tail tip. The one part of her original form that she was never able to disguise was her fox tail; whenever in the past she'd taken human form, she'd always hidden her tail in long skirts. Kaori had even married human men on occasion, however, she had eventually been caught out and been forced to change back to her fox form and flee into the forest. She just could not resist playing tricks, that was her eventual downfall every time. She also had a tendency to be cruel, and also selfish and arrogant. Kaori, on the other hand, had no sense of fear so had eagerly volunteered to be part of the pioneering foray into the human world.

Part of her wished she had never come when the group first stepped thru the hidden door which only they, the myth creatures, could see, next to the main road. A terrifying creature, made of metal and emitting foul smoke shot past and Kaori clamped her hands to her sensitive ears at the fearful racket it made. "This can't be the right place!" she cried to her companions. "The world was never like this!" Kaori remembered beautiful gardens full of flowers, gently tinkling fountains and the cool stone of the walls of buildings, not this hellish place that seemed to be covered completely in concrete, with yet more terrible creatures like the one that had just come past appearing in the distance.

Lorelei stepped neatly backwards, her fine features forming a small scowl, as a heavy, metallic looking creature clanked past them at a dangerously fast speed for something so seemingly large and clumsily put together. Although not in danger of being knocked down by it, whatever it was, she hardly wanted to be close to it, not with the ridiculous amount of putrid smoke it appeared to be producing. Slim, and pale skinned in her human form, with a long, thick mane of red hair, it wasn't until one looked closer that they managed to pick out Lorelei's more unusual, or rather, unnerving features. The small green and silver scales that dotted her upper arms and legs, for instance, an easy giveaway in regards to her usual, and much more comfortable, mermaid form.

"How awful," she remarked indignantly, flicking her hair over her shoulder before crossing her arms in a show of disgust. "And all of that smoke and noise! Completely lacking in any sort of public grace or etiquette." Unfortunately, although capable of being absolutely charming, Lorelei possessed the unique ability to pull of the vain, bossy, judgmental and stubborn brat to utter perfection. And more often than not she indulged in putting this particular ability to good use. This wasn't to say that she was utterly and completely consumed by her looks, but following in the general tradition of most mermaids, she tended to take a particular sort of fierce pride in her appearance, as well as in the appearance of her surroundings. However, once one pushed past this somewhat superficial layer, she wasn't entirely unpleasant to be around, just a little difficult.

"I completely agree," she said, turning away from the road so she didn't have to face any more of horrendous creatures, a look of distaste on her face. "This is obviously the wrong place," she raised her voice in order to be heard over the roar of the engines. "In fact, I absolutely refuse to believe this is right. It must be a mistake." It was fair to say that she was thoroughly disappointed, because common sense was telling her that yes, they were in the right place, and it wasn't at all what she had expected. It had been curiosity, excitement and the prospect of something new that had caused her to volunteer for this, but it had also been because she had filled her thoughts with prospects of beauty and peace, not an industrial world full of concrete and noise.

Aislinn was excited- oh, so excited! To be with people once more! to frolic, seduce, devour, frolic some more and- she had to jump out of the way immediately as a large, oddly shiny, metallic beast screamed and charged her, bellowing smoke all the while. She screamed at it, and growled when the wind of its passing made her skirt fly up, revealing her goat's legs. She slapped her skirt back down roughly and coughed. "We came all the way from Tir na n-Og for this?"

Ash was a glaistig, a goat-woman. They were known to seduce mortals and, occassionally, devore them. Ash preferred only to drink some of their blood, however; human flesh wasn't her thing. To her, it had such an odd texture.

It had been YEARS since she last was able to visit earth, and the child-like nature fey had quite literally jumped at the chance to return. All she'd been able to think of was the dances, the flirting, the fun-fun-fun. While she often seduced men, Ash really was naive and child-like, and very, VERY hyper. She was more than a little self-absorbed, and saw things in black and white. She had an obsession with blood, and had planned on coming to earth to gorge herself silly.

But now? Oh HELL no. This was wrong, so, so WRONG. Where was the grass, the trees, the flowers? What were those metal beats on the black paths? Why did the air smell poisoned and dead? "This is the worst! What have the mortals done?" She shrieked. "They are al SO dead! How can I have play-time in a place like this?"

Navinduidamarax-Redidamaxilurik walked out of the doorway. Dragons had an awful habit of giving their children unbelievably long and complex names, despite the fact that their expansive intelligence did not make long things with numerous syllables any easier to wrap one's scaly head around. Navin had just given up trying to pronounce his full name early on and insisted that he was called Navin. And that was that. He was trailing behind the others, shock and disgust written plainly across his face. His hair was watermelon green and his skin possessed a similar tinge, but his eyes were bright red and slit-pupiled. His skin was translucent and the red glow of his blood was clearly visible, contrasting oddly with the green.

He hadn't been expecting this vilely poluted mockery of a world, and had turned up expecting to find himself in the medieval era. That had been about the time that dragonkind had withdrawn to the other world, and he'd been the equivalent of an infant. Hundreds of years on, he was still only an adolescent, because dragons could take millenia to live, grow old and die. His age showed, because his human body was a fifteen year-old boy. He'd dressed up in dark green clothes that wouldn't have been out of place in old England. He'd also brought a cowl to prevent his hair and eyes giving him away, and a dull green slate sword with a red gem set in the blade that was stuck through his belt . Such swords were tools for casting spells, rather than real weapons, and were another product of the dragons' exile. He was painfully aware that the few humans in sight were wearing things he didn't even recognise, but he noticed one of them had ridiculously coloured bright blue hair. For a moment he thought it was another dragon, but he could see the eyes were normal. That eased his worries slightly.

The senses of dragons were sharp, even in their human disguises, and the air was choking him. Even after so long, he could tell it was filthy and a far cry from the clean oxygen that had prevailed on Earth for millenia past. How could any race cause such corruption? The dragons had existed for far longer, and their civilisation had been much more organised and expansive, yet they hadn't caused a shadow of this damage. He had a coughing fit and doubled over.

Navin considered changing forms and flying away to see if the air would get better, or just diving back through the doorway, but he held his ground. There was no way in any event that he was going back to hear his mother hissing "I told you so!" xD.

Ooc: Starting this now; can't really wait for any longer. Anyone else who wants to sign up can do so if they like, as long as they read all the pages first.

Kaori wrinkled her nose in disgust. "We have to get away from this hard ground," she said.

"Standing on it hurts my feet, and the smell is making me feel sick. There surely must be somewhere in this hideous place where the air is breathable."

AaronShadows 03-18-2012 08:24 PM

Navin attempted to agree, but he coughed uncontrolably, causing whatever he was saying to come out garbled. Instead, he nodded his head enthusiastically at Kaori.

Lorelei shuddered, pinching her nose with her fingers to try and prevent the God awful stench from assaulting her sense of smell any further. In normal circumstances she simply would have demanded one of her companions make it go away. Now, however, she was too put off for brattiness.

"This 'hideous place' seems to stretch on for a while," she remarked instead, sounding a little doubtful. "What if everywhere is like this? Then what do we do..." the mermaid's eyes widened in horror. "It'll all be so ugly," she said, sounding even more distressed than she previously had. "I simply won't be able to stand it!"

spirit_queen 03-19-2012 01:43 PM

"So we fix it," Ash growled out. "We make the mortals fix the yuck! Now!"

Cheshire1996 03-19-2012 07:24 PM

"That sounds all too reasonable," Lorelei huffed. "They're the ones responsible for all of this...this ugly, so they would have to fix it."

Miranda_ 03-19-2012 07:55 PM

"Much as I agree with the idea, I don't think it's very practical at the moment," Kaori pointed out.

"They are used to this terrible environment; they have the advantage. So we should go and find someplace to rest up first, then spy out the land. We can manage that by talking to the humans; human males for example are very unsuspicious."
