    Welcome to Zalzabar's Zpa! Come, come make yourself at home. Here you can relax, and unwind from the stressful and seemingly unending journey Zalzabar has dragged you along on. Below is some useful information you may find useful regarding the different kinds of Ryujin. (Put inside a spoiler for convience)

    What? Modern Architecture and lighting you say? Sorry I have no idea what your talking about...

    ‘Newborn’

    Those who have recently discovered they are a Ryujin are affectionately named ‘newborns’ as they have been ‘born a new’. Those that are newborn often cannot summon their dragon form on command, and their transformation seemingly happens at random. When they are in dragon form their abilities are limited to say the least. For instance, there is no documented case of a newborn being able to fly, such a skill takes time to develop. Their magical connection is also severely limited, and for even normal mages unimpressive. When in their dragon state they are not much larger than a human, perhaps eight to ten feet tall.


    Adept

    After some training, a Ryujin is able to gain control over their transformation, summoning their abilities when they will it. While their transformations are no longer random on occasion, they will trigger their dragon state when under great emotional duress. Also, a Ryujin’s magic is now enhanced at this stage, only the most powerful non-Ryujin mages are able to match their magical abilities. The vast majority of Regnum’s Ryujin are at this stage, and most will go their entire lifetime without progressing past it. Adept’s are ‘normal’ dragon size that is to say about the size of a house.

    Elder

    If a Ryujin is able to reach the elder stage they have been able to unlock the deeper aspects of their power. No longer transforming under emotional stress, these Ryujin can grow to enormous sizes and their magical capabilities seemingly endless. Few of these beings exist and when they do, they typically rise to great power.

    Ancient

    Legends speak of a class even above that of elder. These supposed ancients hold unspeakable power, their abilities of that the Elder Ryujin could only dream of having. How these supposed Ryujin got their power is unknown, perhaps it was from the dragon gods, or some other benign force. Such mysteries may never be answered.


    To give an example Zalzabar is an Elder Class Ryujin as he is capable of transforming the weather, casting large bolts of lightning and can grow to very large sizes when in dragon form.

    As always if you have any questions feel free to send me a PM.

    *cracks knuckles*

    Alright first off a massive thank you to those that have submitted character sheets thus far.

    @galactic-vagabond422
    @greyjedi125
    @Mitth_Fisto
    @Kurisan
    @Ktala
    @The Jedi in the Pumas

    Honestly I'm amazed with how quickly people applied, the positive feedback is very encouraging. This is something I have been thinking about for awhile (and spent more time on then I care to admit) so again thank you!

    With that said there are still two more spots open so if anyone is still interested...feel free to reach out to me.

    Also I find it hilarious that almost everyone that has sent me a CS has said recently somewhere or another "I won't be joining anymore RP's. My plate is too full" so the fact you all still did brings a smile to my face.

    W00T! W00T!

    I am very excited for this game. I don’t often join high fantasy games. It’s a new world for me to wrap my head around

    I don’t know if I’d consider WOW high fantasy. When I think high fantasy I think Tolkien. Lol

    WoW is considered High Fantasy. They have deep cultural development for their many races, inherent languages and pantheons, several musical scores, books and a MOVIE.

    Tolkein's only choice was to pen his literary work. The collaboration of the amazing writers at Blizzard and their MMORPG have birthed a modern High Fantasy franchise, which is beloved by millions across the globe. Long Live The World of Warcraft!

    *I played this game for 7 Amazing years!! ( no, don't ask, lol )

    Also I'll keep the game open for a bit. Super easy to integrate a new player in at this stage but eventually if no one else joins I'll close it off
