A new RP for a new Wiichat is fitting so here it is.
Welcome to Realms
Standard RP rules apply: no bunnying, no god-modding, etc
*credit to Dal for the revised map*
this is a map of the continent on which Realms takes place. the continent itself is called Renit.
For hundreds of years the 4 countries have lived in peace with each other. Each country would meet once a year in the Grand Citadel(middle dot) in order to keep peace among the land. However, recently the country of Destry has gotten greedy. It began by raiding merchants that entered their borders, then by looting towns accross them. When confronted at the next peace meaning, the Destry representives didn't show up. Instead they attacked the Citadel and proclaimed war against all 3 countries. The country of Salfir, with its peaceful lands, had no army and was overrun in days. With Salfir under Destry's control, Drosin and Conud have formmed a shaky allience to stop Destry from gaining control of Renit.
Thats the basic premise of Realms. You have the country Destry on one side and the other 3 opposing it.
Realms Country Info:
Drosin: Drosin is the largest country and has the greatest pouplation. It has a monarch style goverment with it being ruled by the King and Queen. While the royalty makes all the desicions it must account for the people in order to prevent civil war. Its greatest strength is its vast resources, allowing it to efficiently last and support a war.
Conud: The second largest country, Conud is a Republic. The desicions are made by its elected officials that rarely can agree on anything. Its greatest strength is its advanced technology. It has poured millions into its Science departments and as such is always a few years ahead with any inventions or improvements.
Destry: The dark country in Realms, Destry is a dictatorship, run by its Grand Military Commander. Its desire for control of Renit is purely to claim its superiority. Its strength is its own goverment. As a dictatorship, the military is always in control, always ready to fight.
Salfir: A peaceful land Salfir is now under Destry control. Its people formmed the country to avoid ancient wars but is now under its stress again. Though its people are against war, small rebellions are being made to reclaim their freedom.
Realms Geography: This will be made up as we go along. Just don't contradict what someone else has said.
Characters: Everyone is allowed 2 characters that must be approved by me. The format is like this:

Siana Makantes (Gigaidley)
Spoiler Alert!Name: Siana Makantes
Appearence: "Sia" is 17 years old, 5' 8" and has light blond hair that goes down to her waist in a ponytail. She has fiery red eyes and wears a simple light red robe with light chainmail underneath so she can move fast. The center of her robe bears the symbol of her family- two golden fire serpents entwining each other. She wears a black glove on her right hand with the same emblem, and she channels her magic through this hand.
Bio: Sia was born and raised in Drosin. She is the youngest member of the Makantes family, a famous spellcasting family who has worked hand-in-hand with the warrior family of Drosin, the Zamikios family, to protect the land. Her mother taught her the art of healing magic until age 12, when her mother died. Since then, Sia has practiced both healing and offensive fire magic. When Destry declared war on the other three nations, Sia was not chosen to fight in the army simply because she was a woman. Wanting to help, she and her friend Richand set out for Salfir, hoping to help the resistance.
Personality: Siana is a very friendly and nice person, and is always looking to see if someone needs help. Although she doesn't fight if she doesn't have to, she has a strong sense of justice and will help her friends. She also shares a close bond with Richand, who she thinks of as a brother.
Abilities: Siana has mastery of her two types of preferred magic, which are Healing magic and fire magic. When in combat, Sia surprises her foes with her mix of impressive agility and mid-close range fire blasts. She is also somewhat skilled in hand-to-hand fighting thanks to training from Richand.
Spoiler Alert!Name: Richand Zamikios
Appearence: Richand is 19, 6' 1", and has ice blue eyes and wavy brown hair that goes down to his neck. Richand always wears a chestplate of light, silvery-blue armor with moderate defense along with fingerless gloves. Richand also wears a blue headband tied in the back, a gift from his father when he was little. He wears light, comfortable pants with chainmail underneath and boots. On his back, he carries his Zodiac sword, Stargleam. Although the combined weight of his armor is enough to make an average man fall to his knees, Richand is strong enough to wear it all with only a slight decrease in his agility in combat, which is formidable, to say the least.
Bio: Richand is the second youngest member of the Zamikios family, a warrior family known in all four nations for their unique type of combat known as Zodiac Mastery. Zodiac Mastery allows the wielder to channel the powers of the symbols of the Zodiac into the weapon they wield. Only members of the Zamikios family are able to use more than one Zodiac spirit in combat. Richand's father, Lloyd, was possibly the most famous of all of the Zamikios line, having slain numerous legendary beasts terrorizing the nations. Richand learned all of his combat abilities from his father. Tragically, his father was assasinated the day Richand turned 19 (no one knows who the assasin was or why he killed Lloyd, although Richand has his suspicions that it was the doing of the Destry, who Lloyd often denounced publicly as having sinister intentions). Once Destry declared war on the other nations, Richand's younger brother Nicklas went off to join the Drosin military. Richand, however, agreed to go with his close friend Siana, believing that they might be able to do more good by joining the resistance in Salfir. Richand also believes that he might finally be able to get to the bottom of the mystery behind his father's death.
Personality: Richand is extremely good-natured and kind. Like Siana (or as he refers to her, "Sia") he does not fight unless he has to or his friends are in danger. Richand is also very clever, and often finds ways to defeat opponents far stronger and bigger than he is. Richand has a tight bond with Siana, who is like a little sister to him.
Abilities: Richand has mastery of the legendary sword Stargleam, which was once his fathers' and is known throughout the world. Stargleam is a Zodiac weapon, which allows Richand to channel the might of the symbols of the Zodiac through it. Even without his sword, Richand is an extremely capable fighter in hand-to-hand combat. Richand is moderately strong for his size and is also quite agile, able to do flips and jumps even while in his heavy armor. However, as Richand is not fully used to the power of Zodiac magic, it often tires him out after he uses it for extended periods of time.
