[CURRENT VERSION] Life of a Dragon Sequel

Recommended Posts

Boyzilla   

In a previous era, the Magic Golden Age of the Arana Kingdom, humanity, elves, and dragons lived side by side in a period of peace and prosperity. Those days are now long over in the wake of the Arana Kingdom's self-destruction at the manipulative hands of the False King, the Demon, Utheran. A war between mankind and dragons caused by this demon's malicious plot to rule the world brought ruin to both sides, only ending at the climactic battle between Utheran and the Chosen Dragons, legendary draconic figures who sacrificed their longevity for unmatched potential.

With the defeat of Utheran, a peace treaty settled between Dragons and Humanity, both retreating east away from their destroyed homeland towards the continent of Kayla.

Two centuries later, the remnants of humanity have built up a new civilization, the Kayla Kingdom. However, the damage done by the previous war lingers, humans, elves, and dragons would never again know the serenity their ancestors had experienced in the golden age. The peace treaty's duration has finally come to a close, leaving a crossroad on which direction the world will now head. All the while the cycle of clutch reincarnation ends, sparking the birth of the second generation of Chosen Dragons.

Life of a Dragon Sequel v2.35

Hive Link (Changelog included): https://www.hiveworkshop.com/threads/life-of-a-dragon-sequel-v2-35.276005/

Life of a Dragon Sequel is the successor to the old, Life of a Dragon, map. It is a multiplayer RP-RPG map hybrid that features numerous play styles from the untapped potential of the Chosen Dragons, the large expansive human kingdom of Kayla, to the lone wolf Mercenary. Unlike most other Roleplay Maps, Life of a Dragon Sequel features unique growth for its Dragon players, from the beginnings as a small hatchling, to the massive demigod-like figure of a Wyrm. It also is one of the few RPG maps in which feature permanent death, which only a few mercies for reviving hero characters.

Player Slots

Chosen Dragons -- The Chosen Dragons are unique draconic figures who go through a cycle of clutch reincarnation at the death of all five of them, matched with limitless potential brought upon them by the sacrifice of their longevity by the Leader Dragons. Each Chosen Dragon can adapt to choose any element and color, becoming one with that type of Dragon, even if that choice did not exist previously. As a Dragon, they start off as small hatchlings, growing at certain level intervals into the final state of a demigod-like Wyrm. However, death is constant at their side, and while meeting a short end at first may revive you once... Anytime afterward will mark the finishing point.

Dragon Slayer -- Unlike what the namesake may suggest, the Dragon Slayers are akin to monster hunters than anything else. Their Order created during the Human-Dragon War was used for cruel means by Utheran before they rebelled against him. An altar grants them a place to recuperate if death grabs them, but on its destruction, it cannot be reconstructed. As like all humanoid players, the Dragon Slayer features secret alternatives into becoming something with relevance to Dragons.

Dragon Catcher -- The Order of the Catcher in ages past were a means of friendship sport between Dragons and Humans before the False King changed it into the means of capturing and imprisoning young dragons within enchanted prisons. A lone altar may bar you from experiencing death for a moment, but like the Slayer counterpart, once it is destroyed it is gone forever. As like all humanoid players, the Dragon Catcher features secret alternatives tied to Dragons, even perhaps a bit more than that.

Kayla Kingdom -- The only human civilization remaining in the world, the Kayla Kingdom are remnants of the rebellion of Arana who journeyed eastward after the destruction of the old kingdom. The Kayla Kingdom controls a vast portion of the continent and features a proud flag on top each settlement if that flag were to ever change its color it would mark the enemy control of that city. The Kingdom relies on its royalty for decisions, for good or ill. Its citizens worship the Maker, the God of Creation, perhaps the only agreement both Humanity and Dragons have left of its old golden days. Differing from the other humanoid players, the Kayla Kingdom features not an alternative, but an addition as a secret of its own.

Lakor Empire -- Sorrow and Tragedy is the history that struck the Empire's past, once a proposing nation spread along their homeworld, it was destroyed in brutal fashion by a familiar menace from Kayla, the Demon King. Although the Lakor Orcs managed to beat back and reclaim their world, the damage done had made it a desolate place. Now, the remains of the Empire construct a large portal with the powers of their god, La'Koria, who had believed to have died against Utheran. It is up to their Leader to decide whether or not to make peace... or War.

Mercenary -- The Mercenaries are a large selection of heroes with open interpretations of their lore reliant entirely on the player. They are blank states, each featuring their own unique skill set, perhaps even spells bordering on the realm of myth. When a Mercenary dies, the player will be returned to the selection area where they can choose to continue with another hero whose levels will be the same as the previous one.

Routes

Routes are unique storylines that encompass the entire continent of Kayla, featuring different individual quest lines for each player slot that tie in together at the end, depending on the completion and/or actions of each hero will change the end result or difficulty of later quests in the Route. As of the current moment, only the Main Story is available for play.

Main Story Route - The canon events that occur in the continent of Kayla two centuries after the events of the original Life of a Dragon. Choose a hero and go through a series of quests that come together towards the end in a stand against the return of the Demon, the False King, Utheran.

Maker Route - A different story that will go through the events concerning the religious gods and goddess of Kayla in a three different endings storyline that features a mystery that must be resolved in order to truly understand the dark happenings that are occurring.

Zero Route - A tale that takes the heroes away from the world of Kayla into the realm of Halkeginia, a different world with different rules. This story follows the events of Life of a Zero Dragon, and even perhaps features moments that can change even from the Fanfiction.

rebellion of Arana

Can you specify this event, I'm really curious about a little more history on the Human Kingdom. Sorry, I sort of just want more information so I can formulate some pre-made themes.

Towards the end of the Human-Dragon War, both sides of thr conflict had taken some hefty losses. At this moment, numerous humans were doubting the legitmancy of Utheran's rule, whom at the time was disguised as a human king, after numerous events started to depict the Dragons as more than mindless beasts but as intelligent sentients like themselves. Leading this idealogy was the Dragon Slayer Andihil at the time, who had been secretly caring for a young dragonet that would later bond with him to become the first Dragon Rider. Utheran had grown frustrated by slow progression into the extinction of the Dragonsc in his anger he revealed himself as a Demon King, which would spark the moment Andihil needed to gather together a sufficent force, flee the confines of the Arana Kingdom, and incite rebellion against Utheran's now trannical rule. Fortunately, the Rebellion were able to ally themselves to the Dragons by the actions of a Chosen Dragon, who would act as a middle man between the two and prevent hostilities.

Dragon Rider Andihil would continue to grow the Rebellion's numbers as many more humans grew resentful towards the Arana Kingdom and its new usage of demonic forces combined with the now Demon King. When the war had finally ended with the complete collapse of the Arana Civilization and the defeat of Utheran at the paws of the Chosen Dragons, the rebellion took whatever they had left and went eastward... In which they would eventually become the Kayla Kingdom.
