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!

Factions

There are many different factions on Embers, each with their own set up, leadership, and goals. Many factions also have territories or races that they are associated with, and most are a military of some form.

Each faction's link leads to their forum, where the leader should have done the faction's information threads. Please contact the leader if this information thread does not exist; faction management and information-writing is not a duty of the staff, but the person who leads it, instead, as factions are usually member-founded, and all are member-run.

Annyocharis Flight
Formed quickly in the face of danger, the Annyocharis Flight were, at one time, based at the edge of Azure Eagle territory. When the Azure Eagles changed leaders, the actual dragons in the area were threatened, and in response, banded together into a new Flight. Its founding Wingleader, Nalenin Starwhisper, was lost in a fight with the Azure Eagles, with its new Wingleader, Mnemen Skyrain, leading the Flight to Valhalla.

Azure Eagles
Believed to be the originators of the Blood Games, the Azure Eagles stem from the same parent Asgardian faction as the Crimson Snakes, making them sister factions - and they hate each other. The Dragons are very vicious, preferring melee combat and brutal tactics. Often, victims of the Dragons' barbaricism cannot be identified for the lack of anything remaining of them. The Dragons eventually aim to directly attack Valkyrie, as the current Dragon commander has a personal score to settle with Valkyrie's commander.

Crimson Snakes
The sister faction of the Azure Eagles, the Crimson Snakes took a very different approach to warfare as their brethren. Where the Dragons favour melee combat, the Snakes favour distance fighting, such as firearms and bow weapons, and Force casting. Up until more recently, the Snakes were, like the Dragons, out of control, and many were killed in the crossfire of their conflicts with the Dragons. Now, however, under new leadership, they're beginning to calm and are starting to resemble a more active Ebony Eagles.

Ebony Eagles
One of two Asgardian factions formed in response to the Dragons and the Snakes going out of control, the Ebony Eagles are often rather quiet and shadowy about their activities. Rather than tackling things head-on, the Eagles prefer to scout and act as support, in most cases, to the Jade Tigers. The Eagles are known to have a rather extensive information network, which often extends into the Kazanic Courts.

Firebrand Flight
Nestled in the mountains of northern Asgard, the Firebrand Flight have lived in relative peace - and quite a ways away from the Dragons and Snakes, along with the two factions' stupid personal hissy fits. The Firebrands are one of the only dragon flights remaining that remain nomadic, and they wander in a predictable, noted pattern.

Ironscale Flight
The largest dragon flight in existence, the Ironscale Flight's territory spans across a large chunk of the Ramoth Mountains, situated just below Valhalla. As such, the Ironscales have become equated with safety, as the closer to Valhalla one is, the safer it tends to be - this is partially the doing of Valkyrie, and partially the doing if the Ironscales.

Jade Tigers
One of two Asgardian factions formed in response to the Dragons and the Snakes going out of control, the Jade Tigers are more active than their sister faction, and are usually the ones seen first, sometimes the only ones seen. The Tigers actively attempt to interrupt Blood Games and salvage anything that is viably salvageable from cities and towns devastated by Dragon attacks.

Nightmare Crusade
Comprised of Queen Kentari Nightrain's supporters, the Crusade formed when Kentari's mother Avari was murdered, and the throne of the Court of Darkness usurped by her murderer. Their aim was to replace the usurper with Kentari, handing the Court of Darkness' rule back to the Nightbane line. Following Kentari's gaining the throne, the Crusade became something of a royal guard, protecting the Nightbane lineage from those that would see it ended.

Rider Council
Every bonded dragon and rider pair in existence holds a place on the Rider Council, and it acts something as a peace-keeping organisation. The Council as a whole holds no alliance ties to any one faction, nation, or group, and instead aims to ensure peace, the safety of innocent bystanders, to speak for those who have no voice of their own, and remind others that all life matters, for if one life does not, why do any? They are known to now be assisting in the struggle against the Azure Eagles, and have intervened in the Court of Darkness' political games when necessary before.

Sthyrventlin
Formerly two factions, the Sthyrventlin now is a merger of the original Sthyrventlin and the Fallen Legion. The Sthyrventlin (zeer-vent-len) are traditionally the crownsguard of the Court of Chaos. When the Court of Chaos' rightful ruling line was deposed and driven from the Court's lands, part of the Sthyrventlin followed, as their loyalty was to the lineage, not the throne, whereas the rest remained behind, their loyalty being to the throne, and not the lineage. Now that the last living descendants of the Court of Chaos' founder have returned to their rightful place as the Court's royal line, the two halves have re-merged.

The Linaesin
Ancient and honoured are the Linaesin, the first military the Kazanic Courts have ever had. The Linaesin now operate as the military and royal guard of the Court of Light, but their goals do not always fall in line with those of the Court's. At times, they will directly oppose and challenge the Court of Light and or its ruler, and have, a few times, deposed and murdered corrupt leaders. They seem to like their current ruler just fine, fortunately for him.

Valkyrie
Established a little over two thousand years ago, as the afterlife continuation of the foundations that the Roman Empire was built upon, and by the same woman that tore down the Roman Republic, and still leads Valkyrie today, it is the only known faction specifically for valhalir. However, Valkyrie accepts members of any race, so long as they have a decent level of Force, trains them as warriors, and tosses them into the eternal war with seekers. Valkyrie protects, and Valkyrie guides, but strangely, they interfere very seldom in the affairs of Asgard, despite being technically Asgardian. Their home base, Valhalla, is a spherical-shaped floating ship, that hangs in the sky above Asgard. It is as close to a moon as Asgard has.
