Welcome to Altitude's webbie. We are a literate and up, unique fantasy roleplay here to give you the negative G's that will ruin your lifespan by X amount of years! We were established on 07.19.12 by Zephyr, Human, and Overlord Pony whenever they all had a certain muse to make something truly different. And, my dear friends, I do hope that we achieved that goal.
To navigate our beautiful webbie, you should see some links down at the bottom of this box. Just click on those to get to where you want to go. I wish you luck with your journey through Nibiru, Friend.
There are other beings on Nibiru besides its native animals and humans- there are the Adirans. They were and are what one might call "mythical" things here on Earth: fairies, elves, magicians. They knew of the human invasion of their planet, but they did not fight the change, as change must come at times; however, the biggest change was yet to come.
For centuries, an alien race had hovered around the giant planet, a few of its people mingling with the Adirans to learn more about them- their weaknesses, what they were like ect. They were just about to make their move whenever the humans invaded. Intrigued by this new race, they watched the planet for nearly two more millennium before launching their first attack in 1940 in the form of a diseased comet.
The majority of this comet landed harmlessly in the ocean, but a small chunk had found itself to a small island, completely obliterating it from existence- plunging the planet into an ashy darkness that would not only cause famine and death from ash inhalation, but carry a disease that aimed to kill everyone on the planet so the Exemplars could take Nibiru for their own. As the economy failed, the humans were quick to point fingers at the Adirans for causing this mess. They began to reinvent the airplane for the increased gravity of Nibiru and soon declared war on the people across the ocean, hoping their superior technology would defeat the primitive Adirans. They happened to make a big mistake there, though- the Adirans had dragons.
There seems to be no one winning this war, and scientists on the human front are working even harder to give people the abilities of the people across the sea. They had been capturing Adirans for study for years and were somewhat able to produce humans with abnormal abilities- but now they had to bring this to a mass scale. With dragons and Adirans practically raining from the sky, the scientists have taken every chance they could to try to create a population of super soldiers to help win this war.
High above, the Exemplars watch the war with amusement, occasionally helping the Adirans in their battle. Inconspicuously, of course, as their airships float high above, camouflaged as clouds.
The Exemplars, after years of collecting knowledge, had gained a secondary form meant to disguise themselves as citizens of Adira. In this form they can change the colors of their eyes, skin tones, hair, etc. However, their appearance is fused with that of an animal- giving them horns, tails, or characteristics of whatever creature they have fused into their DNA.
In their actual form, they are known for solid black eyes, pure white skin and hair, and black, demonic fumes that puff out of their mouths when they exhale. These fumes are poisonous gas that happen to be their only natural protection. Despite all the vast intelligence they have, they are not the most physically threatening. They require weapons and their poison for nearly all battles.
Since the beginning of their race, the Exemplars obey Valtiel (val-ta-el), a person chosen before they are ever born to be their ultimate leader. Valtiel's word is the word of the ancestors, making their government a complete dictatorship. To disobey the current Valtiel is to turn your back on the entire race, to make a enemy of all your friends and family.
The inhabitants of Adira are everything you can think of, everything you wished existed in your wildest childhood dreams. Beautiful, never before experienced mythical beings live in relative harmony here, in this idyllic paradise. Of course, there are the odd instances of misfortune - a demon taking an innocent bystander as their host, or maybe a werewolf who slaughtered someone to shreds. It's the nature of the species; the laws are very lenient, and murder is extremely common.
Ruled by a single monarch, there are no governments in place. The laws are not the only thing that are primitive; there is no technology in Adira. No mobile phones, no internet, no advanced weaponry. Rather than technology, Adira runs off magic. It would be wasteful to have so many species with magical abilities, and not utilize them. It might seem like a perplexity, but the Adirans are fine without computers. Everything is a manual job - the creatures are physically strengthened by their lifestyles. Besides, who needs to walk to work when you can fly there?
It might seem like Adira would be at a disadvantage in a war situation; how could these beings possibly defend themselves against human and alien intelligence? They actually have an extensive army built - it is only natural for a kingdom to be ready to defend itself. Creatures of various species will train as warriors, learning the ways of their ancestors - leading up to the potential day, when they will soar into the sky on the back of a dragon. Adira has no planes, but they have dragons. Giant, fire-breathing beasts with the toughest scales known to any race. Only the most skilled warriors will be trusted with one.
Humans are just like you or I, but they have become much shorter from their time on Nibiru. How? The planet is larger than Earth, and it's gravity is about twice that of Earth's gravity. This made it difficult to move around, so the humans quickly evolved to the gravity- and still are evolving -but they still are recognizably human. Most humans don't reach heights over five and a half feet tall- and if they do they often have trouble moving around.
There are a few humans who have powers, but by a few, I really do mean a few. Every one in one-hundred people are gifted, but there are more being created every single day. Most of these people have useless powers, but sometimes they turn out to actually be useful.
The humans once had a democracy, but when the first line of Rainwaters took over the government, it quickly became an absolute monarchy. The monarchs often don't interfere with their country unless crisis is at hand- like now.
Beautiful flowers, all of colours and sizes cover the landscape. Due to the absence of technology at all in Adira, there are an increased number of farms, and everyone has a lot of space around their homes. The buildings are all made of stone, as apposed to brick work. Most homes are also decorated with ivy, and a vast variety of flowers. It keeps the morale up, they say.
The streets of the city are long and winding, but pretty. That is a perfect way to describe Adira - pretty. Nature is the dominant force here; there isn't a skyscraper to be seen. The houses are all various shapes and sizes, as to accommodate the different species which inhabit the land.
To the south and west are the habitable coasts of the continent, and where the hills turn into rolling plains and grasslands. The farmers live in this drier place, their Earthly animals roaming the grasslands and Earthly crops growing in mass quantities. To the east, there is a large mountain range and then a tundra and coast that only the dwarves dwelling beneath the mountains to the north know anything about. That is their farmland and where they make their living.
Aniva, the capitol city of Udachi, is a large, large city with strange, short architecture. Buildings expand underground rather than above ground- some of the city actually being built inside the hills it sits on top of. Most people who live in this urban metropolis have never left it, seeing as there is no need to leave such a comfortable place. There are other cities in Udachi, but they are generally situated on crossroads and only inhabited during the trading season, making Aniva one of the only full-time cities in Udachi.
Forests cover the majority of the land where humans settle, and keeping the tales of Earth in their minds, some humans choose to live in tree houses or eco-friendly settlements in these woods. Not many major rivers run through the country, so places to live are rather limited considering the fact that airplanes are still rather unreliable on this world and people can go a very long time without ever seeing a trader passing through.
