Kurose the God Eater
"If you consume the flesh of your kin, you will crave more and more. Your appetite will become insatiable... your skin will turn black... your senses will grow weak... and you will come to me... because it is what you needed... it is what you desired... what would happen if your kin were divine... would that mean I crave divine blood?"
Kurose, The God Eater, The King of the Abyss. A man from a harsh uprising during a time where magic did not exist, destined for greatness and horrible atrocities. Prophecies tell of the God Eaters march against the world of Cavus. Born with the name Kurose, he was born from the goddess of balance. Once a warrior of near legendary prowess among his people, Kurose enjoyed a life of adventure and debauchery. Like many others in his clan, he served as a mercenary, battling rival warriors for glory, bragging rights, and women.
After his father's death, he craved the same renown and the elation of battle. When accused of weakness, after the defeat from his younger brother, and the escape of his mother, he vowed to face the depths of the Abyss. Without a word, he gathered his arms and departed for the world pit.
It is unknown what transpired in the Abyss, no one has ever heard the story and lived. Some say Kurose ate the remains of an old god... others say that a Birthless intervened and saved him from certain death. Whatever the case may have been, it was clear that Kurose did not survive the Abyss with his own power. When he emerged, the warrior appeared different, scorned and mad. He declared war on all known nations of the world, and we have been at war with the Abyss ever since.
This is the first of many NPC profile pieces we will be putting out. This character is intended to be a primary antagonist for everyone, he works entirely alone unless you are a part of his wendigo army. Which even then they are all mindless. You can see in the illustration the slight visages of three of his more loyal wendigo generals. The entire logic is behind these characters is that Kurose gives off a cannibalistic aura when in his presence you will crave the flesh of those near you. You will then either have to kill yourself to stop yourself from eating them or escape the range of his aura to get rid of the effects of the God Eater. If you successfully consume the flesh of someone while under his aura your mind will be wiped and you will become a wendigo slave.
On behalf of the Estorica Team, I would like to welcome you to the newsletter of Estorica and the upcoming Project Aspirant. This newsletter is for newcomers and those familiar with us to see what progress has been made and where we currently stand in development.
First things, first for any and all questions be sure to check us out on discord, our primary hub for communication.
You are more than welcome to introduce yourselves and tell us a bit about what brought you there. Do you have original characters that you want to see if they fit in our world, or perhaps even an entire faction or organization that you hope to bring to life? In general, we are too curious for our own good so feel free to rant away.
And if you have no idea on what Estorica: Project Aspirant is, Well, then the excerpt below is for you.
Project Aspirant is the development process for the fourth iteration of the group roleplay titled Estorica. Estorica is a roleplay forum with a dedicated setting coming from the mind of its creators. (The Estorica Founders) A hearty mix of fantasy and fiction that comes together to provide exciting stories for people to create, and a platform for those stories to be appreciated by others. In some sense, it is a game, involving play by post elements, with rules and mechanics. In other aspects, it is collaborative writing experiment, with constants and variables.
In creating Project Aspirant, we set out some goals, and we hope to achieve them with your help. Roleplayers write responses to one another through posts. Each post describes the character's actions, speech, and thoughts. Forum roleplay is often called play-by-post roleplay. It takes a community to make roleplaying truly work.
We have several milestones with these goals in mind, that will be updated regularly.
