You get one chance.
A single chance to leave your ashen home behind and see the sun before you die.
And this is your chance.

What say you?
I'll Go | I'll Stay

So, you chose to die. Well, here you are, not much else to say. Maybe go have your funeral, kiss your momma goodbye and hope to die in the least painful way possible. It's a short journey to get there; no matter what your alliance, death is imminent. So sit down, take a drink, and try to come to terms with your soon-to-be-demise.

Welcome to Altitude's Neopets website. We are a literate and up fantasy roleplay that was established on July 19th, 2012 here on Neo by Zephyr, Human, and Overlord Pony. TNT has not been kind to us, however, so we have since moved away from Neopets to a more free realm of roleplaying. We have an extremely lax and laid-back environment and our roleplay is rather slow-paced and mature. If you believe this is your cup of tea, you may want to stalk our home, which you can be led to from here. You may also use those barely-visible navigation links below to examine our establishment further- the choice is yours.

Nibiru- the ancient planet spoken of by the ancient civilizations of Earth. The tenth planet home to the Nephilim. The beginning of civilization.

2250- Earth is crumbling. The air is no longer breathable. Scientists spotted the entry of a tenth planet fifty years prior and immediately began construction on a rocket meant to continue humanity. Russia and America worked together on the project, understanding the futility of the other countries' attempts to save the planet and accepting their annihilation much earlier than the rest of the planet. They worked tirelessly to prove the habitability of the solar system's newest planet and on the project meant to send humans to the planet.

In autumn of 2200, the year Nibiru was spotted, 300 families from America and Russia were chosen to continue on humanity. Fifty years later, these families boarded Sequence XXXIX - the final rocket to Earth's orbit and the last one to leave the planet. Books, plants, and animals were all sent with the families into orbit, all part of LEGACY- the last mission of mankind into space.

Nearly 2000 years have passed since LEGACY left Earth and landed on Nibiru. What the humans found here was not what was expected: A frigid cold environment, dangerous species and a whole nation of fairy-tale people. Fairies, elves, vampires, werewolves - all of these things existed in the land across the sea: Adira.

While tensions ran high between the humans and Adirans, relative peace existed between the two nationalities; however, it wasn't to last for long. In 1940, a meteor smashed into Nibiru, sending the planet into global darkness, famine, and plague. Adirans blamed the humans; the humans blamed the Adirans- both countries were itching for war and it wasn't long before it started. While the war was based on nothing, both countries played an equally damning role on their fates.

Far above Nibiru, the Mothership had lazily floated for many millennia, studying the lifeforms that existed on Nibiru. Before the humans had invaded the planet, the inhabitants of the Mothership had been planning an attack; however, upon the arrival of these new humanoids, the Exemplars held back and waited in the shadows for another two millennia before striking. They sent a meteor crashing into Nibiru, hoping the disease they had laced the meteor with would destroy the population. They didn't anticipate a full-blown war between the two nations.

Udachi, the human nation, was quick to redevelop airplanes to wage aerial battle against the Adrian dragon riders. Exemplars set themselves into disguises and observed from the battlefields or shadows, ever-watchful for the moment to plan an invasion of forces.

1948 - present day. King Damien of Adira and Princess Sevyn of Udachi have been thrown into their parents' war. Neither monarch supports the conflict, but they have no choice but to allow their nations to be propelled forward. As the war escalates toward its climax, the ancient brethren of the earth are soon to come out of hiding and the Exemplars' invasion is soon to be complete. What is Nibiru destined for?

Alliances

We do happen to have three alliances: Exemplars, Adirans, and Udachians. Each of them are special in their own ways, so they all happen to have their own section of the OS webbie; however, for your convenience, I'm going to provide you with a brief overview of each alliance. You can thank me later. c;

Exemplars

The Exemplars hail from Decimus and are often considered the most intelligent race known in the universe. They came to Nibiru for much the same reason as Earthlings did, seeing as Decimus was running out of resources and they had to flee to continue their race.

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.

Adirans

As this is the largest continent of Nibiru, you would expect some diversity. In the enchanting Kingdom of Adira, many mythical beings roam freely across the land, safe from the destructive nature of humans. Or at least, they were.

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

Humans hail from Earth, naturally, and picked the second largest continent of Nibiru to live on. They have since dispersed within their country, which they dubbed Udachi (oo-dah-chee), and set up rather-localized governments. They were people from the United States and Russia in the first and only flight to Nibiru, and the people have since broke into smaller 'states' within Udachi. They rule themselves, but ultimately answer to the central government in times of crisis.

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. These people are products of experiments with combining human and Adiran DNA and generally turn out having strange characteristics or just outright dying.

Udachi has also invented AI, creating cyborgs that are wired to the Internet and central interface of the country. Cyborgs generally have little or no emotions and are slowly replacing human pilots, meaning that there will be fewer human lives lost. They are relatively uncommon, but more and more cyborgs are being "born" everyday.

Udachi 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.

Settings

There are two major landmasses on Nibiru- Adira and Udachi. The whole planet is rather cold, but the two regions are definitely different in their own ways.

Adira

The whole of Nibiru is cold, due to how far away from the sun the planet is situated. Yet the Kingdom of Adira seems to be a little better off than Udachi. This is the reason why Udachi was left unoccupied for so long - Adira was a more desirable area to live in. Despite this, it rains very often over the kingdom. Floods are frequent, and most houses are built with this fact in mind.

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.

Udachi

Udachi is the smallest, coldest major landmass of Nibiru. Covered in mountains, forests, and snow, this place wasn't exactly the humans' ideal place to live. Their settlements are situated atop the hills of central Udachi, sheltering themselves from the worst of the winter snows that fall into the valleys below. Generally, when it's not snowing, it's not doing anything at all. Udachi as a whole doesn't get much rain, and the rain it sees comes in extremely violent hurricanes blowing off of the ocean separating Udachi and Adira.

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.

Rules

01. Respect each other. This is probably the most important rule- we don't deal well with rude and inconsiderate people.

02. Literacy in character is a must. Talk how you wish in OOC (as long as it's understandable), but keep in mind that in character, everything must be literate.

03. A minimum of three paragraphs are required per each roleplay post. If you're having a bad day with writing, don't feel pressured to reply as soon as your roleplaying partner posts. You can wait a little bit until you get your muse back. (:

04. Your basic roleplaying rules apply here- no Mary/Gary-Sues, PP'ing or GM'ing.

05. We don't have a character limit, but be sure to roleplay all your characters. c:

06. This is a war. People die in wars. So, please, be willing to kill off at least one of your characters for the cause. ;D

07. Don't beg for council or a high character position or whatever. Whenever those are open, we'll let you all know to apply for. c:

08. Zeph and I both have to agree on your application for you to join.

Application

That button will direct you to the guild set up here. The guild is set up so you can develop your characters, ask any questions and do a little bit of roleplaying to develop characters and understand the world a little better. There isn't an application required to join the guild, so just hop right on! When you're ready to do your application at our board, which is a character application, mail Zeph or Pony and we'll guide you to how to get there! (:
