In another world, much different from ours, the world below was completely covered by water. But the strange thing, there were floating islands. Islands that floated in the sky. The people here adjusted to new ways of life, building large flying ships that could carry them to where they needed to go. So it was much like the ocean below, but in the sky.
There were merchants, simple small ships sailing the skies. But then there were threats as well. Skypirates were one of the worries, especially for merchants. Most often swooping down on a ship before they even have a chance to react. Skypirates steal and take what they want, often making raids upon the smaller floating islands in the land.
But there were worse things than simple Skypirates. Great beasts of flight occasionally swarmed in the air. Flying demons, dragons, or whatever they were, they were the true predators of the floating islands. Though below, there were also creatures in the waters. Though the beasts in the water were not much too worry about.
Now though, there are rumors going around the islands…of a hidden treasure. A land holding an ancient civilization. Ironically, it is supposedly located below somewhere in the vast world of water.
The beasts in the regions have been acting more aggressive and hostile. The sky has become a dangerous place, for both Skypirates and normal citizens. Creatures attack anything without any real reason. Something is happening; something is setting the world off-balance.
Perhaps finding the ‘treasure’, there may be a clue. Skypirates set out for their own glory, while others from islands go in search for the ‘treasure’ in order to keep their world from becoming a wasteland. But it will not be easy, the creatures of the world; flying, swimming, and walking have grown hostile. The only animal one doesn’t really need to worry about is the domesticated. Other than that, it is dangerous to go out by yourself anymore.
Now is the time to choose; Will you be a Skypirate, in search for your own glory and the treasure?
A citizen, only wanting to protect your home from anymore destruction?
Or one of the beasts, raging through the skies or oceans and ravaging the floating islands?
This is an alien world, so you may be human, or a creature that even you made up :)
The treasure will be hidden and the creatures are acting strange due to the unstable powers created by the treasure. The lost civilization will be more in depth later on in the RP

Bio/history: Takoon is a bit of an odd case. An inter dimensional explorer being thrown from one world to another he does so in the name of curiosity wanting to see everything that reality has to offer he stops at nothing and in most cases he ends up in hostile places in which he barely escapes with his life. He was created by a man named Dr. Matthew in a place he can't quite remember. But with his new independence and freedom he does what he pleases.
You don't have permission to post in this thread.
lillan sat happily and lazily on the man's head. "My name is lillan, what's your? I bet it's some thing common. is it Sam ? or matt?" lillan asked while curling up, like the way a bird does in it's nest on cold night.
Rhath raised an eyebrow at the creature. How strange...it acting like this. But then again, who was he to judge. Besides, he had other plans.
"Very well," he replied to the phoenix, starting to walk in the direction she had pointed him to.
Isak stopped, glancing back. He watched as the fight went between the creature and the pirates. The wizard heard the creature's injured shriek, but also knew now that it would more than likely be back to demolish those that dared to attack it. He watched as it attempted to fly away, unblinking.
He looked back to Takoon, "It is best if we keep moving. That thing will be back, looking for them."
He indicated the Sky Pirates, "If I know one thing, that beast has a habit of holding grudges. It'll be back to finish them off once it is fully healed."
The creature flew for someways, until it could finally go no more. Selgrith landed rather ungracefully, making a rut in the ground where she slid to a stop. She snorted, turning her head to look at her wing. Granted, she could only see infrared, but she could see where she had been hit. As blood dripped to the ground, it sizzled, revealing that her blood was also acid.
Selgrith snorted, slowly standing. She shot a glare where she had been attacked growling under her breath. The creature then attempted to limp along, amazingly having found a large enough island to accomodate her massive size.
"oh, don't worry I just see this yummy blue berry bush. but if you would like me to lead you into a dark pit of blood thirsty beasts , creatures, monster, or what ever my twisted little mind can think of, I will let you known. weather that be now or last minute ,which I might just enjoy. because I like watching a good . now what about that bush behind that over there, a birds got to eat." lillan then nodded off at the blue berry brush behind the tree she pointed out, so kindly to the boy, who she sat apron .
He looked up as the phoenix clambered onto his head. Rhath looked to where the creature said to look, but grew suspicious. His eyes narrowed, glowing slightly.
"Now why should I trust a creature such as yourself? For all I know you could be sending me into a nest of some beast that'll rip me apart...but then again, that might be fun. I'm not exactly human myself you know."
Barely having enough time to respond to and doge. what seemed to be a large green spit ball. rouges eyes widen .feeling the electro waves around her stir up form a larger source . she turned only to watch a sudden blast of thunder go through the creators wing . wahh! she yelled .while holding her hands over her ears. The creator roar was god awful up close.
Wait until after the creator fled. Rouge looked a down at where the blot had come from.and I thought I was the only one around with a shocking power hehehe she joked and glided of the winds over to the girl with wings. hey are you? she asked and took a glance over at her ship. It seemed sticks and van lowered the ship so that they could escape by going under the sky island. Which was one of their many tikes. Of course seeing how the strange creator left. Her crew laid anchor. Meaning they shot some wire into the floating ground and let the ship literally hang there.
rouge thought to herself and noticed a balk spot on the ground. hey um . . .didn’t you have a friend down their? she asked .while pulling her red scarf down and around her neck.
lillan nodded at what he said. slowly lillan climbed up apron the males head. "in that cause turn towards your right then move straight into that tree way over there. you see it yes?" lillan asked the male.
The massive beast gave a shriek, feeling the electricity run through its body. It whipped its head around, listening intently, soon catching sight of another. It opened its jaws, releasing a green substance. Whatever it touch, instantly was eaten through; acid.
Then it felt something hit its left wing. The creature was growing annoyed, its flying now somewhat impaired. It knew it didn't have a chance with an impaired wing. The thing gave a final roar at the ship and humans, struggling to fly off to somewhere away from these creatures. But now it had one thing in mind; revenge.
Sorus couldn't hold the bolt any longer, it was shaking the staff too much! Suddenly, he flew back as a incinerating hot bolt of lighting struck right at the beast, it missed the middle- but it was a center hit through the left wing! The backfire from the staff caused him to crash into a tall oak, it had knocked him senseless. The staff had cracked from such a strong attack, and the shadow was just laying up against a tree, as if he was just placed there.
His eyes turned black, and it looked like he had no eyes now. He was in grave danger, being knocked out right at the edge of the woods, anything could grab him now.
Rhath gave a slight shrug, being careful of the phoenix upon his shoulder. He never really did have a destination...unless you count his plans on killing any human in his path. He himself wasn't human. Though, due to the humans, he was the only one left.
"Nowhere in particular, just wandering really," was Rhath's reply to the phoenix's question.
rouge! van yelled and tossed her abroad. Thanks van! she yelled back and pulled her goggles down . I’m gonna help out the girl. You make sure the ship can get away safely she said before pulling up her red scarf and jumping off the airship. Free falling as she slipped her right foot under a strap and her left foot onto a weird control petal. Heh . . .she said with sparks of blue still appearing at random on her body as she grabbed the side of her board before a sudden burst of light blue could be seen from the end of it . this gave the board a boost and sent her flying through the air.
Yep it was an air board. Which meant it was like a airship. Only a hell of a lot harder to control because the smallest of pressers would send you zipping across the sky .leaving you’d be lost in minutes. That and one would usually have to build it themselves because they were so darn expense to get your hands on
Huh? what’s that? she said feeling odd as the sparks on her body turned purple. A storm nearby? she said feeling another electrical source form the sky island below.it seemed to be giving her power and extra kick. No. is it- she cut off and look back at the girl. Watch out! rouge yelled and slammed her board against the beast .sending about 50 electric volte’s through the creators body before being reflected off the beast and sent doing 360’s backwards into the sky.
Waah- she yelled and lifted her left foot off the control petal .stopping her in midair and sending her falling once more as she shook her head and pressed down and forward on the control petal . Sending her up again. Hey big and ugly why don’t you pick on someone your own sizerouge yelled with sparks of purple gathering in her right hand. she thought to herself with a smirk .
The thing snarled, barrel-rolling out of the way of the cannon fire. It moved extremely fast and agile for a beast its size. The creature felt something hit it in the side, leaving a burn. It whipped its head around, screeching. It saw a small form flying in the air.
The great beast instantly changed direction, headed for the small thing it could see in infrared. From what it could tell, it was humanoid, with wings. The scent it carried, strange, and it could hear it speaking, sounding feminine. The creature could also hear the yelling of those upon the ship, but that wasn't its biggest concern now.
This other dared to hit it. With a great sweep of its wings, it instantly was seemingly upon the small female. It snarled, lashing out with the horn upon its head which seemed to glow with some, unknown dark energy.
Isak turned his head when Takoon pointed out something. The man's eyes narrowed, glowing slightly. He knew that beast...and he knew what ship it was attacking. Ryend flapped its wings a bit, sensing the agitation of its owner.
The man shook his head, turning the other way, "No, I'm not helping them. As far as I'm concerned, they deserve to crash into the ocean below. What you are observing, is an airbattle between Sky Pirates and an unknown beast that not even I know much about. It would be best to let them fend for themselves. Besides, no one has ever been able to bring that beast down, and I don't think anyone will."
Isak then turned, starting to walk back to the village. Ryend resettled itself on Isak's shoulder, form glowing slightly.
Takoon took another look into the sky. He couldn't shake the feeling, Like he was up high in the sky but yet he was on land, He could understand if he were on some type of mountain plateau but that wasn't the case. He shook head putting the thoughts behind him, for now he had more pressing matters. Like finding his way back home, or learning where or When he was. He noticed the light on the mans shoulder. He was a wizard alright, and that must've been a familiar on his shoulder. It was fascinating to see something like that, even in His own world with it's oddesies Pure magic wasn't something you came along every day. He would've liked the chance to study it if he had it. Then he heard something in the distance it sounded like a loud screetch. Looking in that direction he raised a brow as cannon fire began to go off. Is that a flying ship...? Wait... It's firing at something look!
Takoon pointed at the sky, not far off from them. We should go see what's going on. That thing is big, way bigger than the ship it's attacking, maybe they could use our help, What do ya' say mage?
