    The Hero of Legend​


    Hundreds of thousands of years in the past, there was a place known as Skyloft, a village thriving on an island above the clouds. This island lived in peace for many years, but a prophecy foretold that the village would be in great danger. It told that a demon would rise and attempt to conquer the entire sky, as well as a place known as the surface. The surface is a huge slab of land beneath the clouds that we would consider to be something like earth. Lucky for the people of the sky, the prophecy also foretold of a great hero. The hero came and discovered the surface, revealing it as a liveable though barbaric place. He then, after a tremendous journey and battle, defeated the demon, destroying him for good. From then on, many people began to move to the surface, including the hero himself and his wife. The Skyloft population began to expand. There were however, still monsters and dangerous creatures on the surface. This problem was addressed with the creation of the Skyloft Knight Academy. A school dedicated to training young soldiers to travel to the surface. Origionally this school was seen over by the great hero himself, but not even the hero is immortal. He, just like many of the people involved in the great battle, lived an enriched life and died. The only man still alive from that time is a man named Groose, the mayor and academy instructor of Skyloft.

    Welcome to the Academy Maggot!

    As a member of the Academy, it is your job to domesticate and police areas of the surface, you will be venturing into unknown territory. That is why we exist, to take the fear out of the unknown. There will be monsters, monsters who feel we are strepping in on their territory. They won't want peace, and we are happy to oblige. You will also be asked to ensure the peace within the sky. There are more places with inhabitants than Skyloft, and you need to ensure that our home turf doesn't meet with any trouble. Don't worry young fella, it may sound like a lot of responsibility, but you have all the resources to succeed. You have the greatest instructor the world has ever known, The Great Groose. Skyloft also has exceptional blacksmith, so that weapon you chose on the first day of training won't be breaking anytime soon. Hmmm, there was something else I must be forgetting....Oh of course! Your Loftwing!

    A Knights Best Friend

    The main source of transportation for those who live in the sky. Loftwings have existed longer than the legend of the hero. These are very large, strong, and loyal winged creatures. They can very by size, color, and abilities, but all are capable of carrying their owner on their back, and each owner and Loftwing share a special bond. When a villager of Skyloft becomes of age, they stand at the islands sanctuary, (Where a statue of the legendary hero stands.) and await for there Loftwing to arrive. The Loftwing that has chosen the villager will come and the two will perform their first ride together. This solidifies the bond between the two. Loftwing training is one of the focuses of the academy. Students must be able to not only master riding their Loftwing, but be able to perform combat maneuvers mid flight.

    And Now

    You are a student at the Academy and your class is finally qualified enough to perform missions. You must listen to the two supervisors, as well as the Mayor Groose, and perform well on the surface if you wish to rise through the ranks. Although the world is in a time of peace right now, there is a new prophecy to be told, and you will be a part of it!​

    Islands:

    Skyloft: The Capital of the sky. This island is the biggest. It holds the Academy, the Shrine, the Market, and the majority of the sky population. The terrain is very diverse. A river runs throughout the entire island and finishes at a waterfall on the northeastern side. The land is pretty hilly on the outsides but the center where most of the people live is flat.

    Folliville: Although not as big as Skyloft, this island is a fairly big island that holds the nightlife of the sky. Although there isn't a lot of houses, there is a casino and many clubs. The biggest being one called "The Lumpy Pumpkin." This bar is the biggest and can get pretty crazy. Often the missions of the lower recruits is to resolve bar fights that take place there. Most of the land is industrial and filled with buildings.

    Lantelin: This island is the main agricultural island. Its mostly full of farmers and iron workers perfecting their craft to send off to the other islands. As expected, the land is very flat and ideal for growing crops. There are some caves spread across the land as well.

    Yozo: Yozo is a fairly small but beautiful island. It is also known as the island of the wind. It is a very windy place with fields of flowers and a large spring. The people of Yozo claim that this is where Loftwings are born, but this is just because many Loftwing fly over the island. Scientists believe this is just because Loftwing have a taste for the nice appearence of the island.

    Mandeli: The island with the most people after Skyloft. This island is mostly made of water. It almost looks like a large sink. The largest piece of land is a very high mountain towards the north. Many people enjoy traveling here to hike, sail, or take part in the popular insect safari's held by the locals.

    Rhidolpha: The last of the main islands is Rhidolpha. It is also the smallest of the six main islands. It is still pretty packed with people however. This island has a ton of bamboo growing all over. Many people live in huts from the bamboo. Many of these people also practice fighting by using the bamboo, and occasionally the academy will send recruits to pick up the technique. The island also has an underside where the locals keep their treasure, but this is just a rumor.

    There are other islands, but they are either too small or not populated enough to be named.

    Note: Although areas of the surface have been explored, there isn't much documented of it other than a map. It is your job to establish areas.


    Rules

    1. Follow Dem Serebii Rules
    2. For at the least the first part this RP will go mission to mission, so if you can't be around for a period of time just let me know and we can work around it.
    3. Lost Requiem is Co-GMing this, meaning he can do whatever he wants and has as much power as I do.
    4. Don't bunny people, I won't bunny you unless you are absent or I've discussed it with you.
    5. Your Loftwing will be allowed to have some unnatural powers which I will let you decide. But do not overpower it.
    6. Have fun!

    Sign Ups

    Name:


    Age: 15-21

    Appearence: Traditionally Academy attire will be pretty light since you will be flying and moving around a lot. But other than that it's not super uniform so have fun with it.

    Personality: Interacting with your teammates will be important so make this beefy.

    History: This doesn't have to be super complicated if you don't want it to be. What does your family do and how was your life growing up among the islands, you don't necessarily have to be from Skyloft, but try and pick one of the islands in the sky since the surface isn't considered a totally safe place yet. Just think of Skyloft as the capital.

    Weapon This is the weapon you chose and crafted on your first day, definitely have fun and go all out with this since you will have at least this item for the rest of the RP. Oh and everybody should have something different so first come first serve!

    For Your Loftwing

    Name:

    Physical Appearence: No, in this RP having your Loftwing be Crimson doesn't mean anything, they are all unique.

    Personality: Loftwings can't really talk, they are sort of like horses, so you can keep this short.

    Abilities: Like I said before don't overdo it.

    Does this require Zelda knowledge? I do own Skyward Sword but really couldn't get into it.

    Sheps™ Tick,Tick,Tick....

    Nope, I wanted to make sure anyone could play it and the plot will not directly follow the Skyword Plot. If I didn't explain anything clear enough please let me know :)

    Sheps™ Tick,Tick,Tick....

    You got it!

    I mean, this isn't an exact replica to the games, but at this time in the history of the world there isn't gonna be a lot of racial diversity. So yeah, the main look can be called Hylian for the sake of ease. Hope I answered without confusing you too much!

    Cometstarlight What do I do now?

    I would also like a reserve please!

    Is there going to be a twist in the plot other than exploring the land below?
     
  8. Sheps™

    Sheps™ Tick,Tick,Tick....

    Of Course! I will admit I can't do plot twists like the incredible Lost Requiem. So we worked together to make something pretty spectacular!
