Welcome to Embers! We are a long-running, unique role-play, formerly known as Tamashii no Chikai: Oath of the Soul. Our site has been added to and altered over the last ten years, making us more of an original game than anything, but we began our journey based on Bleach, aiming to be a story-line and plot driven Bleach site, and it remains a prominent part of our site. If you don't know anything about Bleach, you can do well here -- many already have! Our game features many new races, factions, and social and political ties and tensions to explore, and there is a small cluster of living inhabitants of Japan to interact with. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to reach out in the Help Desk board, or poke into the chatbox at the bottom of the site. Happy exploring, and we hope to play with you soon!

Soul Society

Courtyard
No posts
The Ichibantai courtyard, which spans across much of the center of the Seireitei. It is one of the few places that has trees and the like, though a good chunk of it is concrete pathways.

The Seireitei is of course divided into sectors allotted to each Division, where its members carry out their duties. These are those sectors - each Division has a slightly different layout depending upon which one it is, so be sure to check before making assumptions.

Where the apartments and barracks-assigned living quarters are. On the outskirts of the residential districts are the noble family manors.

The Court of Pure Souls, the base of the Goteijusantai. All whom become Shinigami eventually move here. It is a circular fortress with very high walls - at each of the four directions, there is a gate, several days' walk apart, guarded by a Gate Guardian.

Sokyoku Hill
No posts
Where the powerful Sokyoku lies, said to have power equaling that of a million Zanpakuto. The Sokyoku is used to vaporize the soul of one whom has severely broken the law - as such it is very rarely used, and the grounds upon which it stands is often quiet, if not tranquil.

  • Pham Thanh: "He's known for his hot temper, but the thing with Renji is, it doesn't burn quite as hot as people tend to think. In a sense, it's sort of a half-front. He overplays his temper in day to day situations, so that people tend to underestimate him, thinking he is far more impulsive than he actually is. And then it turns out, he's actually very calculated in his movements, and while his temper will flare, his real anger is far more of a slow-burner and he does not forget." -- So actually Iname, your bf IS a little deceptive.

Welcome to the first day of your new life. Embers is an alternate universe Bleach RPG, running since 2006, first under the name War Chain, and then under the name Tamashii no Chikai. The recent 2016 reboot under the name Embers follows a very similar standard and focus that War Chain and Tamashii no Chikai did. All canons are allowed, as well as OCs, and both can have influence on the site plot and direction. Here's to 16,000 more posts!
