You've made the right choice! Thank you for your interest in Solaris RPG, and welcome to a world of technology mixed with mythological fantasy and everything in between. I just want to introduce you to the basics of our in-game environment. I'm going to keep this section short and sweet.
On the next page, you will have the opportunity to select a race and class for your character. Solaris RPG has six starter races available. Some are similar to one another while others are vastly different. For now, I would like to clarify the world of the game, planet Solaris.
Planet Solaris is an enormous planet. For example, it is nearly fifteen times the size of planet Earth. It has various regions that are all very different. It is part of a binary star system and has a neighboring moon, Planet Lunaris. It all exists in a realm called the Nomaverse.
In the beginning...
Many millennia ago Planet Solaris was designed and created by a race of beings known as the Da'Kari (also known as the Builders). The Da'Kari utilized highly advanced technology bestowed upon them by their creators, Obel'jon and Noma'el. Obel and Noma are two popular deities in the cultures and societies of planet Solaris.
After realizing the planet was unsuitable for life the leader of the Da'Kari, Dakon, invented a device he called the Qual'baraba. The Da'Kari launched this device into the upper atmosphere of planet Solaris where it detonated and released untold numbers of self-replicating nanobots. The nanobots were designed to latch onto all living and non-living things and improve upon them. Once a being has them, they never lose them.
The introduction of the nanobots was not without some side-effects, however. The nanobots gave the inhabitants of planet Solaris incredible abilities and powers. After the first civilizations started taking off, the inhabitants of planet Solaris found they were able to do amazing things.
In many of those situations the inhabitants became superhuman. For example, some inhabits gained the ability to fly while others learned the ability to control the various elements of the world. Some inhabitants have super-strength, while others have super-speed, and some may have all of the above.
The nanobots enabled countless possibilities and as the people of the world evolved the powers bestowed upon them put ideas in their heads. Factions formed over time and various societies began to clash, utilizing their own unique special abilities to decimate one another. The Da'Kari suddenly vanished without a trace, and the wars between the worldly factions continued for thousands of years.
The various storylines of Solaris RPG have gone on for over twenty years. In the beginning, we started at the end of the Great Wars storyline. Many things have occurred since then, and now the focus of the game has shifted over 30,000 years into the past! This sudden change of pace put our current storyline into a timeline before the Great Wars ever happened.
Our current storyline is where your new character comes into play. For the most part, the player characters are mostly part of a faction known as the Elyndrians. The dealings and endeavors of the Elyndrians are the main focus of the game.
The bad guys...
The primary antagonist of the current storyline are the Vegonians of Vegonaar City and the Ardanians of Aufeis Village. Together this movement is called the Black Empire. The leadership of the Black Empire consists of General Balthazar, Queen Vishera, Grey Fenrir and their evil master, Lord Bahumura.
The Black Empire will stop at nothing to consume all resources of Planet Solaris and its neighboring worlds. They seek only to destroy and ravage the land in an endless quest for more power.
Your new character will find himself (or herself) smack-dab in the middle of everything! He (or she) will have to find a place in the world of Solaris. So go make some allies, make some enemies, and increase your experience level. Become superhuman, take down the Black Empire, and unlock the secrets of the Nomaverse in the process!
Or... You may choose to join up with the other side! You could become a Vegonian or an Ardanian instead. Join the Black Empire in an attempt to take out the Elyndrians. Go for it. Join the dark side. Be aware you must already have a character of level 100 or higher to sign up for the Black Empire.
