Dawn of the Elements
- A great calamity has shaken the world, seismic activity far off the coast of Shangon Island has created a vast schism in the ocean bed, forming an undersea trench of phoenominal proportions. The aftershock of this event has shaken the far corners of the world as everyone is aware, but no one has any idea what it could be, only the water tribes seem as if they know anything, but they will not utter a word.
In accordance to ancient water tribe legend, the forces of the world allowed for benders to use their abilities, the spirts that inhabited every element of the world gave them the gift of bending. The legend states that a time will come where the world will exact from us a toll, a price for the use of the gifts it has given, this will be a great cataclysm, the likes of which will all but scour the world of every last living being. The event will be heralded by the oceans rousing the toll taker from its slumber.
Deep within the trench something stirs, the walls of the trench occasionally rumble as if something were violently hitting them, the sea's are tumultuous within the area, as the water boils from a heat source deep within the fissure, and the winds howl greedily above the ocean's surface. As this fearsome creature disturbs the balance of the earth beneath the sea it begins to show massive impact on the rest of the world. Volacnoes sprout randomly with great activity, powerful earthquakes pound cracks into the earth's crust, and tsunamis envelope the coast-lines with relentless horror.
Little time remains before the benders must face a being of great strength and might, a being comprised of all the elements, its form is a mere 6 foot tall human-shaped mass of shifting frigid ice, boiling magma, earth and gales of wind all mashed up to comrpise of the creature's body. This monstrous demon will rise from the trench bent on nothing but the destruction of everything it comes across. It sustains great mastery over all elements, and is extremely impressive in strength, it does not show mercy, it does not spare lives, it is relentless, and it is fearless. It is The Dawn of the Elements.
The time has finally come for the nations to unite together and try to survive the monstrous being as well as the natural disasters that have begun to envelope their world. Will they be able to put their differences aside and sustain their dominant place amongst the bending world? Or will they turn on each other and only add to the destruction of their own race? What happens in the end will all depend on the choices made by the nation leaders. Their decisions could very well determine the fate of the world as they know it.
Rules of the Site:
---> Please respect all other members of the site. This means no petty or nasty arguments, foul language, spam or anything else deemed unnecessary or rude. If you have a problem with another user or even one of our staff members, please PM an appropriate member of staff and they will deal with the issue as best they can. This means: No Flamming, No Insulting, No Arguing, or anything of the sort. If you have problems with another member, contact a mod or an Administrator and we will work something out. Keeping the peace is one of the top priorities of this site, so cooperation with each other is a must. So be sure to avoid problem causing topics such as Politics. Sports is fine, but watch yourself. Failure to comply with this rule will result in warnings, followed by suspension and then a ban.
---> Absolutely, positively NO arguing with a staff member's decision; if your a moderator, do not argue with an administrator - they have the right to make a decision unless it is just complete bullshit, then you may report them to the head-admin and get them banned. That sound fun? ^.^ Basically, respect all staff members decisions. If you don't agree with something a staff member has to say and it is something of great importance then PM someone who withholds a higher rank than them. Absolutely NO ARGUING WITH THEM. You'll be warned once for arguing, The second time you might get a warning and after that you won't like what will happen to you. You may, however, talk it out with a mod or an Admin if you disagree on something, but if they ask you to stop, stop.
---> Only members of staff may post on application threads (character, pet, weapon, etc.). If you are not a member of staff and you post on one such thread, your post will be deleted and you may receive a warning. Anything else that a Moderator would approve. Please, Don't do this. We pick staff members for a reason and if you weren't picked as one that means we either don't need you or we don't think that you're capable of doing a good job as a member of our staff. Either way, it isn't your place therefore don't do it. If you absolutely need to tell them what they've done wrong, PM them about it and it can be their choice whether or not they want to listen to you or wait for a Moderator or Admin to look it over. Disciplinary actions will vary depending on the seriousness of the infraction.
---> Please do not spam outside of the spam sub-forum. We will delete posts and issue warnings if you do not adhere to this rule. Spam gets annoying, no one likes it, and it makes the whole site look sloppy. If you do not know what spam is, it is basically a message that does not adhere to the topic, or is completely pointless and unnecessary. An example of this, would be if two people are fighting and out of nowhere, you post "((Bob is gonna win!)" If you do things like this, the post will be immediately deleted, and you will receive a warning, next time it's a temporary ban from the site. Another instance of spam is a constant posting of something, basically, if you post "I like pie" ten times consecutively or close to so, it's spam, this will get you temporary banned from the chatbox ON SIGHT. Spam out of the Spam area will not be tolerated. We want this forum to be as clean and organized as humanly possible therefore we don't want ANYONE to spam. If you do spam out side of the spam area you will probably only get one warning and after that we will take action, We don't want to have to ban people but trust me if we think you're going to downsize the forum we can and will IP ban you and you'll be gone for good. Just please keep this rule in mind before you make unnecessary posts.
---> Please refrain from double-posting, once again: it makes the site look fairly sloppy, and no one wants to see your side-profile and signature all over again. Try to edit, but we know people make mistakes, so this rule will not be thoroughly enforced, but if there seems to be a pattern...you better bet your getting in trouble.
---> This forum is PG-13. Adult content, foul language and anything else considered 'beyond' this age rating will be removed and can result in warnings, suspension or even an immediate ban. Take it elsewhere. This means that if you are someone who really likes to gore your topics up, then you have to either tone it down or just not join. This also means NO sex topics, either. Seriously. This is a Naruto RPG, not an adult chat room. Kissing, dates, hugs and all that other good stuff is allowed out in the open, but everything else needs either to be taken to the PMs or not done. Period. Something PG-13 rated would be kissing and mild-cussing as a maximum.
---> Advertising your own site is permitted, but only in the 'Advertisement' forum. Read the rules in that section to find out more. Anyone caught advertising in the chatbox or elsewhere will be dealt with by a member of staff, we will absolutely NOT permit advertising outside said section. It drags away members and is very bad for publicity. We want this site to phlorish with members, not everyone running off to join the "newest funky Naruto RPG" you heard about in a PM from some guy with 0 posts and 40 PMs.
---> Please do NOT bug staff about checking your application and or jutsu. We do have lives and we know when things are needed to be done, so Please don't bother us. I know personally that I hate to come on and see around 20 PM's asking me to check things, it's just completely annoying, because people should have a lot more patience than that. You may ask a single person once at a time, but after that you will get in trouble if you consecutively ask, after being warned. If your stuff hasn't been checked within 48 hours you may PM 1 Moderator. Please do not PM more than one. If that Moderator hasn't replied back to you or checked it within 24 hours please PM an Administrator and one of us will do it. In the Message please state which Moderator you first PM'd. That way we can check your stuff and we can check to see if the moderator's are actively working to approve new applications.
---> No Canon characters, whatsoever. The cannon series ended hundreds of years ago and a new age is here. This means that you can't be Aang, Sakka, or Kitara. If you try to make a cannon character you will be automatically denied and have to wait 24 hours before getting the chance to make a new character for approval. No references to Canon characters either, please. You may not be related to anyone from the actual show, not even hundreds of years ago - just be original with your history, please. Things get way too complicated, with fifty million of Aang's grandchildren, it'd get quite frustrating.
