The Premise - Story

           The Story of Malice is a deep dive of uncertain history and an even more uncertain future. The characters are born fully grown and physically do not age. Instead, they magically adapt and mutate due to the magical nature of their creation. In the citadel of Malice, the people have congregated and organized a form of government, where they had a custom society and reached a bronze age within their history. With Religious zealots and threats of civil war always on the rise, the people struggle to keep a delicate balance. Sometimes this balance falters, and the leader of their world is killed, but other times with great effort and resolve from the citizens of Malice this balance is maintained.


           War and the wrath of the gods isn't the only thing to fear in Malice, outside of the protective citadel walls, lives Nox the great dragon, and outside of him exist beast of different shapes, sizes, and threats who only wish to dethrone him by killing and eating as many people as he does. To avoid his wrath, the people of Malice provide a tribute to the dragon each season, and in exchange, the citadel is spared. The neighboring villages, however, spend each night with one eye opened as between the dragon, the other beast and monsters, and the bandits and tribes that seek power and glory. There is always some new danger to prep for, always some new risk that one takes by living in Malice.


           Which begs the question, If all magic has a source where do we come from? Why do choose to believe in gods we have never seen? The Cycle of Malice states we come from a divine being we only know as Mother, or The Mother of all, who orphaned us right before our first breath. We all share one memory of her, a shrouded figure telling us to "Live"

The New Moon - Algorith, the Creator

         - "The light of the new moon. The sign that a new season is upon us and the representation of balance. All children born under the new moon have an affinity towards creation. They are often artistic in nature and curious to everything in and around them. Algorith was the creator of our reality. He took his time, being extremely creative with his desire to understand things and their inner workings."

Red Moon - Tivere, The Destroyer

         - "The light before all things end. The blood red moon that appears at the end of each season. All children born under this full blood red moon have an affinity towards destruction. They are wildly cunning and intelligent, ripping things apart to understand them. In order for new things to come into existence, old things must be broken down. Those who are born under the blood red moon have an affinity for violence, and enjoy in overcoming obstacles by any means necessary."

Diamond - Summer, The Divine Beauty

         - "The Fire of Passions. Those born in Summer have an affinity for appearances and charisma. They, like those born under the new moon, are creative but more so in the art of the mind and interaction with the things around them. They spend time social engineering their way through life. These social butterflies will talk your ear off should you give them the chance. Some of them like to hear the sound of their own voice. One could even go so far as to say that they are a tad bit narcissistic. "

Crown - Sull, The Leader. The Commander of the Divine Army

         - "Those born in Sull have a natural ability to lead and command their peers to success. Some have even been known to use this sort of natural talent for personal gain. Understanding the nature of herds of animals or crowds of people, they have learned when to take charge, or exit a situation. Sull lead the battle against mother, and though some say man defeated his mind in battle, others scream that it only occurred because his divine power was sifted by evil magic. "

Tooth - Fain, Always on alert. The Seer of Nightmares

         - "Those born under Fain have an extreme eye for detail. So much so, in fact, that they are excellent at predicting things that happen before they happen. It is for this reason that typically those born under Fain are plagued with nightmares of horrible events yet to come. Fain was the right hand and best friend to Sull, following him into battle. He would howl menacingly as he dug his weapons into unsuspecting victims. "

Hourglass - Winter, The wizard of time

         - "The will of all Divines. Those born under Winter have a natural affinity for knowledge. Many would say they are born with twice as much intelligence as a normal orphan. Not in a sense of the ways of the world, but more so in the sense of how they fit in the world. They have a natural wisdom and high will power towards whatever they set their minds to. Winter, much like his father Algorith, sought understanding. However, he found it much too quickly and locked himself away. He had become overwhelmed by feelings that told him reality was far to unforgiving and pointless. Those born under the star share in his melancholy."

Cup - Writger, The Trickster God of Joy and Sodomy

         - "Those born under Writger’s star have an aura of positive vibes, and are generally happy people so long as things seem okay. They are motivators, team players, and great conversationalist. One would almost think of them as charismatic if not for the strong scent of alcohol some of them seem to have. This isn't to say they are all alcoholics, but what might bring an Orphan a better joy than a good drink? Usually they take towards entertaining talents, and making people around them laugh. The sense of humour however can sometimes become extremely dark. Writger had made the mistake of falling to Malice. Rather than banish mother when he discovered her, he decided to visit her often. Perhaps to talk. Perhaps to play. Some say it was a love affair, as their joy rocked the planet into the shape that it takes today. "

Leaf - Spring, The Avatar of Life and Change

         - "Those born under Spring’s star are wise to the natural order of things and have long life spans. They tend to try everything at least once. Spring is a twin to fall, born on the same day their constellations are extremely close to one another. When they have a partner or goal in mind, they gain a clear mind. One that takes in everything, one thing at a time. It is for this reason that on occasion some refer to them as scatterbrained, but the brilliance behind them lies within their appreciation for all things. Spring and Fall are twin lovers destined to be together, but always the polar opposites creating and maintaining balance in the universe. "

Skull - Fall, The Avatar of Stagnation and Loss

         - "Those born under the stars of death are cursed with short life spans and long memories. They never forget anything from the moment of their first breath to their last words. This grants them both vivid memories and ability to describe in great detail anything they bear witness to. It is said that Fall has witnessed the death of spring countless times as they are trapped in a time loop. Destined to repeat the vicious cycle of creation, love, and death. While Spring is unaware of this, each time they repeat this cycle, Fall forever maintains it. Knowing each and every detail of each life and the outcomes of each cycle, unable to stop the cycle because if he does they will both cease to exist. "

Arrow - Sprum, The Lucky Boy, or The Gatekeeper

         - "Those born under this star are burdened with a notorious amount of good or bad fortune. It is believed that the child with mother’s blessing is the sole reason that anyone born under this star has bad luck. The myth being that as mother siphons Sprums power to create the blessed child. It is said that when you die, your soul passes into the aether for your energy to return to the proper god where your soul will rest. Sprum is the guardian of the aether and will only let those he sees as worthy return to their proper god. Those who he deems unworthy are devoured. Once inside his stomach, the impurities are burned out of the energy so he can then use it however he seems necessary. ​"
