The World is one kingdom, and the bad lands. The king is immortal. His rule has been just for centuries. Two years ago, the king decreed that scouts would venture into the bad lands looking for an ancient city known as Aragoth.
In the past two years, starting the day that the scouts left the kingdom, orcs and goblins have been attacking from the badlands. Some 'scholars' have said that the king angered the gods and now his subjects pay for it.
The adventurers of the kingdom are broken down into scouts, knights, scholars, and rogues. Each depending on his weapon of choice and any talents he might have.
The gods of the kingdom are:
The King - Landis, the eternal.
The Shadow - Lashale, the hidden.
The Wraith - Gorin, the hunter.
The Scholar - Vena, the teacher.
The assassin - Dragon, the shadow walker.
The healer - Unicorn, the kind.
The watcher - Vani, the guide.
Most everyone follows the King, a few that actually worship him do so by upholding his wishes to the utmost.
Lashale is the god of rogues, good, neutral and evil.
Gorin is the god of the hunt and all things that move though the world with a single purpose. God of hunters of all types, a few assassins follow him.
Vena is the Goddess of learning and magic. She has some healers that follow her but most are those that study magic that has nothing to do with healing, nicknamed, Lady BOOM.
Dragon was an assassin in the early days of the world, every assassin knows of him and know the myth that he never died, that he is out in the world somewhere looking for a successor.
Unicorn is the goddess of healing, she appears as a beautiful woman in silken robes or polished plate. She governs the healing arts.
Vani is the only god that does nothing. She does not interfere with mortals, she records all their deeds. It is said that her books are what brings about the judgement at the end of a person's life.
