Keepers of the Balance
Do not, in anyway, feel like you MUST follow the plot all the time. I highly, highly encourage everyone explore to the world! Not every town will have quest givers or whatnot, but you’re free to go out in search of your own quests, fo’ realz.
- Within the past few years, some strange things have been happening. To put it simply, all decay has stopped. People have stopped getting ‘older’ and plants don’t wither. Everything still can die, but nothing degenerates. And growth has slowed down as well. This has, in effect, made people ‘immortal,’ but more full grown adults, especially those born after this started, look like they’re in their early teens.
- To make matters worse, Heaven and Hell have been cut off from the world. While most Cleric Prayers are still answered, they do not have as intimate of a connection with their chosen deity as they used to, and Raeor and Lylia have just disappeared. Parallel realms are still accessible, but the upper and lower ones are not. Some angels and demons have spread this news because they’re trapped out of Heaven and Hell. The Shinigami had started to create pocket realms to store the souls, but that has also stopped.
