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"

Overview

Hello and Welcome to Estorica!
Estorica is an Original Lore-Based Fantasy Sandbox roleplay, set in a Medieval time in a land called Malice. It heavily pulls from high fantasy ideas but is a distinguishable multi-genre role-play. All of its characters, lore, and concepts are designed by the founders of Estorica and its members. The time and setting are shared by all characters, the events of one topic can have an effect on another topic, and the characters in either topic could never actually meet. Estorica uses a domino effect style in its setting where everything is connected, and things fall into place to complete the story.The possibilities are endless, and you as a player decide what you will do in response to the breathing world around you.

This traditional, Play-by-Post setting offers brand new concepts and story arcs meant to challenge the norms of the medieval, High-Fantasy genre. An interactive game that’s managed by dedicated staff, waiting to help you and your fellow writers, guide the story of a wholly unique world. What more is that this story is just beginning: there are few collaborative frontiers left in the online writing world, and this is your chance to help pioneer the next!

Plot

When Mother gave us the gift of life, she couldn't have imagined how cruel we would become with it, or perhaps she made us in her own marred image. In this life, you are a resource, a material and an asset, something to be molded to fit the needs of others. If you're lucky, you'll take a few steps up the ladder, and look down upon the ones who stood where you did. If you aren't, you'll find that there's no such thing as too far down. We are the men that walk the earth, the kings that rule the land, the beasts that stalk the trees, and the ore that crafts the swords. There is no such thing as freedom here, unless you embrace the cruelty, unless you embrace the cycle. The cycle of creation, of pain, of subjugation, and of death. You were not the first to be thrust upon this ground, and you will not be the last. Make your choices, and make them quickly, else the world shall make them for you. Will you be a slave? Or shall you reach towards the impossibility of emancipation?

Questions and Answers

How Difficult Is It to Create My Character?

One of the several unique aspects of the story behind Estorica is that our characters are created, not born in the traditional sense. All men and women are created as adults with some basic understanding of the world - they do not deteriorate with age, but are susceptible to mortal harm nonetheless. This creates a number of ramifications and expectations to be explored within your own character’s past as you work on creating them.

This provides an excellent opportunity for those less experienced in Forum Roleplay. Your history and understanding of the game’s lore need only to be as deep as you yourself are comfortable. If you feel up to the challenge of playing a much older, established character then we welcome you to read the lore provided and craft a backstory suited to your character’s age and station. If you would like to take things slow and learn the lore as you go, then you are free to enter the world with the same sense of awe and unfamiliarity as a character who was created yesterday.

You determine the pace at which you and your character engage and understand our game’s lore.


What Exactly Can I Play?

High-Fantasy Role Play settings are rife with class systems, tropes, and prerequisites. What sets Estorica apart more than anything else is the unique way our characters exist in the world. Adaptations and mutations are what define all living things in this game. To become a centaur, to harness the raw power of any given element - to be turned literally into livestock for consumption against your will - your character will become the life they live. Even staying a simple sentient, reminiscent of what we know as a human could be a challenge to maintain.

What your character evolves into, or what they achieve, is limited only by your imagination and your willingness to work with staff in order to watch your creation become fully realized. Our greatest strength is how singular our concept of character growth is in and of itself. Couple that with the fact that our story is still in its infancy and you’ve found yourself a static world with a dynamic plot that boasts no rival. This is the time to make your mark and experience something entirely new.

I’m Fully Immersed, But I Have So Many Questions!

I completely know and understand the feeling. Estorica hosts a Discord server that is populated nearly 24 hours a day. The unique nature and forward-thinking aspirations of the game will always present questions. Please, feel free to join our server and allow us to guide you through the character creation process or answer any other questions you may have.
