-The Situation-
You have chosen to join the Alterria Wandering Blades program, or AWB for short. For the rest of your life, from the age of ten, you are subjected to intense training to harness your Chi into elemental forms. You are to serve your realm as a hired blade until the day you die. You form a pledge when you complete the basic training program, which decides what jobs you are allowed to turn down. Once you take this pledge, you can never change it. You can take a wide selection of jobs, but you are required to complete them if you take them. If you break any rules at all, you can be rightfully excommunicated, imprisoned, and or killed.

-How to get in-
At the age of ten, all children get two options. Join the AWB, or do anything else, including joining the normal military. If you don't choose to join the AWB at that point, you will never have the option ever again. If you choose the AWB, you are given one week with your family to prepare for your leave. After that, you're leaving with whatever you can carry.

-Chi and how it works-
Chi is the physical energy residing in all living creatures. Plants, animals, even sea coral, all have  chi energy. Granted, anything that cannot move, has a very minuscule amount of chi, but everything contains chi. Chi is needed to live and move. It gives you the energy to get up, and it helps you go to sleep. It aids in rebuilding a cut, and it gives you the strength to cut down a tree with an axe. With proper training, chi can be molded, into a massive array of forms. The main elements, the outer circle, even the special technique form mastered by Garrus Altonna himself, the wanderer's circle. Through this program, you will learn to use chi as a weapon, and you will use it to defend the kingdom of Alterria.

-What happened in the last year-
While our heroes lived their lives as warriors for Alterria, a Fortuga youth by the name of Aaron Virlitan, used his mysterious chi circle known as the God's Hand circle, to lead Fortuga to a massive, sweeping victory against Misuria. The Sand Dwellers were forced to become the slaves of Fortuga, a race of red skinned, olive eyed, brutish warriors who are naturally strong.

There was no law against the mistreatment, and even murder, of a disobedient Misurian slave. And given the pent up anger of the Fortugan people, the Misurian massacre of 20/4/901 was inevitable. A wealthy Fortugan man purchased a hundred Misurian slaves, and lead them into the town square, for Fortugan citizens to buy, beat, and kill as they pleased. Not a single slave left alive, except one. Aaron himself bought a young woman by the name of Sandria, and made her his personal slave. A Fortugan man attempted to take her from him by force for other purposes, and was killed instantly. In that moment, Aaron Virlitan, a now 15 year old boy, declared himself the Ruler of the Fortugan people. No one dared object. Aaron was a great leader to his people when they did not have one, but now that he has taken the land of an entire sprawling empire, how great of a leader can one teenager be?

Alterria is beginning to fear the intentions of a conqueror such as Aaron. Garrus has gone into hiding, now declared a rogue for mentoring Aaron. Alterria has considered the possibility of war with Fortuga to free the Misurian people, but other nearby countries are now outraged. They left the small, island dwelling freedom fighters of Fortuga to die, but now want to free Misuria from the grip of Fortuga, when the tables are turned? The people of Galvoria, a land of swamps and constant revolts, has now unified in their now immense dislike of Alterria. Rolix, a frozen land of warriors and diplomats, is beginning to loosen their ties with Alterria, but have no cut off the Alliance as of yet. Itanya, a small artistic nation near the small island of Fortuga Capitas, has become strong allies with Fortuga, and Fortuga has formed a protectorate over them.

-Races and Nations-
Alterria: People who are born and originate from here are European and American based. They speak Alterrian, which is the equivalent of our English.
Fortuga: The fortugan people are of their own sort of race, being limited to the base appearance of Olive eyes and red skin. However, they speak the German equivalent of Fortugish.
Misuria: The Misurian people are a mixture of Islamic culture and Southern US people. They speak the Equivalent of Zulu, Mitsurgish.
Itanya: The Itanyan people are Italian based, and speak the equivalent of Italian, Itatzia.
Galvoria: The Galvorian people are sub human. The equivalent of Inbred Jewish, they speak the Equivalent of Jewish, Galvish.
Rolix: The Rollian people are Russian and Swedish based. The powerful warriors are equal to Russians, and speak their own language equal to Russian, Tollik, while the Swedish are Diplomatic and speak the equivalent of Swedish, Rolltik. Most Tollik know Rolltik as well as Tollik.

-The circles of chi-
There are three tables of chi.
-The main elements
-The outer circle
-The wanderer's circle

The main elements circle is a square within a circle. The main elements are the most common elements to get, as they are the easiest to learn and master. The main elements are as listed.
-Fire
-Water
-Earth
-Air

The outer circle is a simple circle, with a line going from the sub list of fire to the sub list of Earth, and the Sub list of water to the sub list of air. This forms an X in the middle of the circle. The outer circle is much more difficult to learn and master than the Main elements, although difficulty varies with each sub element. The outer circle's elements are divided as sub elements of the four main elements, as they stem down from them. The outer circle's elements are as listed.
sub list of fire:
-Light
-Dark
-Smoke

Sub list of Water:
-Steam
-blood
-ice

Sub list of Earth:
-Metal
-Plants
-healing

Sub list of Air:
-Lightning
-Fog
-Poison

The Wanderer's circle is the most advanced form of the elements you can possibly learn. It requires you to learn two or more elements or sub elements to combine them into Wanderer's circle elements. The Wanderer's circle is constantly expanding, due to limitless possibilities. The Wanderer's circle elements cannot be listed, as there are too many to list. The Wanderer's circle is just a circle, representing endless elements to discover and create.

-Rules-
-Please add Date of birth to story. Current date/year will be updated frequently as story progresses.
-You can work in groups, you can be a rogue elementalist, you can be whatever, but don't try to be someone of godly power, who knows several sub lists or several wanderer techniques. Try to stick to one or two elements or sub elements, Wanderer elements will come later.
-You don't have to be a Alterria Warrior, you can be a fugitive. However, be aware that you are ranked based on your skill as an element user. Your rank determines how difficult your pursuers will be. S rank will mean that the best across the land will be competing for your head. Anything below is a simple on-the-board job.
-You have very little contact with your family after you leave for training, and there are no phones in this day and age. Visiting them when you have no jobs on hand is fine, but if you visit your family with a job to do, you and your family will be executed.
-The king will have you sentenced to death for almost anything, including if you fail three jobs in a row.
-You can only learn to use your Chi in the program. You cannot be self taught, nor can you harness it before the age of 10.
-Don't be an annoyance. Alterria Warriors, young and old, are all expected to be the pinnacle of self control. Act like it.

-Rogue Elementalist-
Name: Garrus Altonna
Gender: Male
Age: 37
Appearance: http://na.leagueoflegends.com/sites....0cS1VOT
Elements experienced in: Air with a sub of Fog and lightning, all the Wanderer elements (Since, y'know, he invented all of them.)
Weapon(s): A wind enchanted Katana
Still in the training program?: No
Bio: Garrus Altonna is known as the Wanderer of the circle, due to the fact that he discovered, harnessed, and mastered all elements of the known wanderer's circle. He progressed quickly through the training program, surpassing all expectations. And when he took all masters level classes at the age of twenty to perfect his wind technique, things took an odd turn. One day, while practicing a lightning bounce shot, he became curious. What caused lightning to bounce? Perhaps there were different forms that could be used for this type of shot. After several different positions were used to channel and fire the lightning, he tried snapping his fingers. Instead of lightning, a small popping sound formed. Confused, he attempted again and again to reproduce this move, but with no success.

Weeks later, When he was channeling lightning in an enchantment class, it happened again. Only this time, there was a visible explosion in the air. Using the heat and intensity of lightning at a speed greater than the naked eye could see, he lit the nitrogen in the air, causing an explosion. This conclusion was discovered by the program's lead scientist, Harod Vitalin. After several of the program's best lightning users attempted to reproduce the effect, one finally did. Soon after, the others learned as well. Garrus was a hero to the program, discovering an entirely different circle. And with that new-found knowledge, Garrus began studying under Harod. After years of perfecting scientific know-how, he produced a new result, a change in temperature. Taking a user of fire and air, and plenty of practice, he showed everyone that using the heat of fire, or lack of, in the air, he could change the temperature. At the age of 25, Garrus was given a grant of scientific practice, and he retreated to a home in the distant mountains, learning and creating new things.

One day, a meteor shower came in at the same time as a flood, during a storm. The entire mountain area Garrus lived in was totaled, but he managed to escape. He wandered the roads, a dog of war for the kingdom, and yet a man of the people.  People speculated the disaster was a mishap of his experiments, being the harshest weather to ever batter the kingdom grounds, leaving many dead, but there is no known proof to the claim.

Garrus is now an outlaw, being held responsible by Alterria for training a 'rebel leader'. Many people are starting to revolt in the name of Garrus, calling the Alterrian government 'racist towards Fortugans', 'lying, deceitful alliance breakers', and people who have 'no respect for the greatest warrior and inventor in Alterrian history'. Garrus now travels as a rogue elementalist, but still a man of the people. He can no longer help people however, as the Alterrian government has begun executing people for having contact with him. A single word from Garrus, is the only thing standing between Alterria and the biggest rebellion it has ever seen.

Your pledge: To protect any who need help, unless the act is unjustified or could lead me to my own fall. To kill all who have done enough wrong to warrant death, and to educate those who wish to surpass expectation, as I have.

Name: Elizabeth Kerigan

Gender: Female (The lack of female characters needed to change)

Age: 18 - Birthday: 4/1/882

Appearance: http://meganerid.deviantart.com/art/Alchemist-Mage-Airi-424386417

Elements experienced in: Earth with a sub of healing and plants

Weapon(s): Her sword and her "walking stick" (said walking stick helps her channel her powers)

Still in the training program?: Graduated

Bio: Boy a lot has changed. A year ago, Liza had been traveling with a rouge and the now ruler of the Fortuga. They had turned in the rouge at Alterria's Capital, split the money, and gone their separate ways. Now graduated, Liza travels around on a self proclaimed mission to help any suffering towns regain their health and safety. At least that's what everyone believes.

The truth is...she's searching for Garrus. What's happened with Aaron worries her, and she knows if anyone can help her, it's Garrus. So her search continues on, and she helps people in need on her way.

Your pledge: To defend happiness, the one thing she seeks for in the world. Those who steal it deserve only death.

(Accepted. Just a note, you have lightning listed under fire as well. If that was meant for something else, please change it and inform me you did so.)

(I'll go ahead and get you all started, since it seems you guys might not know where to start.)

-Elizabeth-
Near the border of Alterria is where you currently are. You've helped many people along the way with simple healing, and the simple confidence boost of having an Alterria warrior near by. Currently, you are on a mission to help people who escaped an ambush on their trade convoy recover. It should be nearby, on a road somewhere.

-Ladric-
In Alterria Capitas
There are so many people at the board today, that it's practically impossible to view the board missions, or get one. Why is there such a huge crowd?
In Alterria Capitas
-Rexford-
Slowly, you've managed to push yourself near the front of the board. You might be able to get a view of the missions if you can look over or around some of the taller people.

I am a man of patience, I calmly play a prank. Whispering an incantation with my chi to trick the taller folk.

Alright, a few of the taller people are out of the way, making off with a mission sometimes. You might be able to get a look now, if you try to move in and look.

I looked around the road, keeping my eyes trained for the people who had escaped ambush, as well as the people who attacked them. They could very well still be out here.

In the far distance are a thick covering of trees along another part of the road. Too far away to see anything other than black dots among the waves of green. Other than that, it was empty road for a large while longer. Perhaps if you continued on this path, you'd find the convoy. Then again, that forest looks like it could have been where they were originally ambushed.

I sighed, looking around. I was beginning to think this caravan was nonexistent. As those thoughts crept into my mind my nerves began to tingle. What if...no, it couldn't be a trap. And if it was, I could handle myself.

(Interesting news everyone, interpret it as good or bad if you wish, you can now end up colliding with roleplayers from roleplayforever if you happen to meet them. It's quite unlikely, but it's possible. They're moving along the story just like you, but none of you are near each other yet.)

One person could be seen moving through the forest now, but the figure couldn't be identified yet.

The figure could be identified slightly. It was most likely a male, and wore a purple robe. It's hair was white, the face was a blur from this distance. The figure turned towards Elizabeth slightly, but made no effort to show motives.
