Mature Content Tweak
January 11, 2018
Mature content now depends entirely on the birth date listed in your profile. It will automatically decide if you're above 18 and start displaying mature threads to you. These are highlighted yellow, so you can still avoid them if you'd rather.

Wow it's weird to be typing 2018... anyway, we have a new theme with some fancy stuff, but some of it is still broken. Also the email field for guests appears again, I'll fix it eventually.
Introducing Battle Suite 4.0 RC2
October 24, 2017
We now have a working version of an early write-up of Battle Suite 4.0 available for use. This system completely automates tabletop functions, and is very user-friendly.

Embers // Afterlife Fantasy

Welcome to the first day of your new life. Embers is an afterlife fantasy cyberpunk RPG, running since 2006, first under the name War Chain, and then under the name Tamashii no Chikai, originally as a Bleach RP. Some Bleach influence still remains, but it is all presented differently and features new elements. The recent 2016 reboot under the name Embers follows a very similar standard and focus that War Chain and Tamashii no Chikai did, and we hope Embers will grow into its own free of its fandom ties. Here's to 157,000 more posts!

An odd mixture of living and dead, eidolons are living beings with oddly advanced skill with Force. However, due to their nature as being alive, they cannot contain enough Force to sustain themselves with, and must absorb it from somewhere else.

History

It is unknown now how or why the first eidolons came to exist, only that they did some few thousand years ago. As eidolons can, if they are not careful, drain other Force-based creatures dry and inevitably kill them this way, they have a long history of being at odds with valhalir and Valkyrie. At one time, they began to sort of congregate together, but it is very difficult for them to tell when they are facing a normal human, a soul fighter, a seer, or another eidolon, and their groups eventually began to disband naturally.

As of now, there are a very small number of eidolons remaining in Iuna, and they tend to live long enough that a seeker eventually kills and eats them. Some eventually become diablo, but most are never seen again.

Age and Development

Eidolons age slower than humans after they come into their powers. Some eidolons are around thirty or forty years old, and look perhaps no older than fifteen. This is an off effect of their Force absorption.

Factions, Groups, and Organisations

Eidolons no longer band together, being mostly unable to tell when they've met another eidolon, and generally will keep to themselves now.

Powers and Abilities

Unlike soul fighters and seers, eidolons need more Force than they can contain within themselves. As such, absorbing any sources of Force they can is a necessary component to their abilities. As Force-absorption comes naturally to them, they make very skilled soul fighters, if they so choose to train to become one. Many eidolons also have seeker-like unique abilities, and more powerful eidolons can learn to open portals to other dimensions, Blink, use Lightfoot and Force sorcery, and some may eventually generate a daemon.

Relations with Other Races

Astrals and valhalir tend to be very wary of an eidolon, but most other races really aren't concerned about them. Seekers are typically very attracted to them, and often will target an eidolon before they target another spiritually aware human - most eidolons die to a seeker, sooner or later.
