Nihonei RP Background

Post by Cthulhu on Wed Aug 02, 2017 3:36 pm

A land of the blade and the pen , of great bright festivals that rage through every town , yet also of silent murderous deeds down deep in the dark of the woods , a land where spirit and man co-exist though not in perfect harmony. The spirits make their domain in the wilderness , far up in the frigid mountains and deep in the darkest woods , while the living make their home in the valleys and the glens and their massive cities filled with lights and yelling voices. This is Niihonei , a land of constant duality , of bright ceremony and show and yet also of discipline and honor and knowing ones place. Yet now the land is out of flux and chaos rules , bandits stalk the land and corrupt politicians all vie for the seat of the great shogun , any lord with a blade and some men wishes to take the land for his own , as the Empress ,celestial as she may be is seen as but a figurehead , a kitten masquerading as a majestic tiger. The Qengdao , that great empire to the mainland west simply watches with mirth , seeing this as the inevitable fall of the 'barbarian islands'. Yet is it, will the land fall to butchery and savagery , or can a group of heroes rise and return the land to peace? It is your choice.
ne
The three caste of men:

The Yogore: The original inhabitants of the isle , come from the sea millennia ago , when the Nihon first arrived they used their more advanced bronze weapons to cut these people down en masse and force them to the outskirts , now this once proud seafaring people are known as the Yogore ...or the dirt.Now though they begin to rise in rebellion against their oppressors , yet the empress simply declares 'Any Yogore seen wielding a blade , shall be beheaded with it'.

The Nihon: The average everyday man or woman (or the technicolor rainbow in between if u so please) of Nihonei , shorter than average , with tan or pale skin , almond eyes and generally dark hair . They are seen as the middle of the castes , not as low as the dirt who are seen as subhuman , yet nowhere near as saintly as the Celestials who are worth a thousand of them. They are permitted to carry weapons , climb the social ladder , and own land.

The Tentai: The highest most divine caste of mankind  , legend says they are the tears of the gods themselves ,who became men when they hit the Earth , they are the only Nihon who can wield magic in it's pure unsealed form and as thus are seen as holy , making up the highest of the high nobility. Each one is seen as worth 1'000 Nihon and 100'000 Yogore . To  disrespect one promises life imprisonment after 20 lashes , to strike one death , to kill one , death to your entire clan. Most have never even felt the sting of pain before as they're all (except for the few Sword Saints of their caste) spend most of their lives in palaces writing poetry and having affairs.

Magic in Nihon: The mystic arts in Nihon take many forms , these are the ones we know of (All of these forms are forbidden from the Yogore)

Sealed Magic: The most common form of the mystic arts , used by everyone from common store clerks to the high priests on mount Hongonji , A seal is written in sacred Himawari ink , said to be the blood of the lower gods , and is used to draw energy from the spirit realm in the form of seals , often written on paper slips . Seals can be used to enchant weapons with special properties , dispel evil spirits , or even summon creatures to serve the Mystic as well as many other things. One such use is Paper Magic , taught in the great island university of Nobutada to the Paper Magisters. Who manipulate swarms of sealed paper slips to their whims .

Unsealed Magic: The pure form of magic only available to celestials  , it can be used to summon the elements , manipulate ones surroundings, control the minds of men and beast , and to make a place sacrosanct .

Reiki: The natural energy that resides within every living being on the planet , many martial artists and warriors hone this spiritual energy to strengthen their bodies , becoming fast as a hawk in the air , strong as a great oxen , or agile as the white monkey. Depending on a man's spiritual attunement it can even be used to heal the wounds of others , or use another body as a puppet husk. However the most legendary power of the Reiki is the ability to make contact with one's guardian spirit or Shugore. These take the forms of animals and vary from soul to soul , and in great times of need can appear to aid their charge. In odd cases though one's spirit can be something special such as a Demon , Kitsune , or even a mighty Dragon.
