    The History of The Fall

    The country of Lucidia had been land filled with war for centuries. Perhaps even millennia. First against each other, then against other Empires, and perhaps then going full circle and fighting one another again. However, in the last century (1602AC) there has been an uneasy peace stemming from the city of Lichtenstein. The formation of the Church of the Blood Healing has been gathered together, and with it, it has united the people under Norevar's guidance once more, even though many people still wonder where the miraculous blood comes from. Is it from the priest's own veins? Is it from Norevar's slit wrist? Is it from some other, Old God, slain in the Cataclysm years before, within Meryn, by now ascended heroes of a now lost Empire? Some believe that those who know the true answer have been slain in their sleep by the churches inquisitorial sect before it could be released to the masses, or have joined with the Church of Blood Healing, due to the church now ruling with supreme dominance in the area. Either way, the power of the blood they offered was incredible. Ailments disappeared rapidly. Wounds faded away quickly. Mental suffering lessened and lessened. Was this /not/ the power of a God? Even the Order of Scholars didn't doubt this truth, despite their scientific knowledge, though, again, whether this was due to the threats against their life or otherwise was yet unclear. Or perhaps they had been too busy with their enhancement of scientific knowledge, and weaponry development. The peace has prospered, and all has been well on the home front for generations...until around two decades ago when darkness began to reach across Lichtenstein and it's populace. Horrors began ripping their way from the deep parts of the world, and the wilds causing havoc. Monsters of ruination. Crime has been rising in the streets. The priesthood has been becoming more like zealots in their crusade against heresy. Ailments and mental sickness have been re-emerging in the public, as well as physical mutations. The skies have been dimming, and the sun has begun becoming harder and harder to see, and the moon is slowly but surely becoming more and more blood red. To combat this threat of mutant, monster, and beast under the Blood Moon to come, the order of The Blood Hunters was formed, each different and prepared for the hunt ahead, though many are lost to the madness of Lichtenstein and its beasts, some even joining the mutants in their hunt. The city is now a dark shadow of its former self. The Empire is failing because of it. Only the little remaining hunters can end this, and finally stop the Blood Moon from destroying Lucidia, forever.

    The Former Groups in the Forgotten City

    The Priesthood of Blood Healing
    Keepers of the divine blood, formerly these people gathered and administered the blood to all they could to the people of the city, as was their charge. They also ruled the city with an iron fist, using their inquisitors to keenly look over the other groups within their mighty city, save for The Blood Hunters, and disrupt or destroy and heretical work that went against their great work. They also worked hard to destroy mutants and abominations of all kinds, as well as mages, the disgusting things that they are in the eyes of the gracious Norevar's gaze. But what help where these gracious priests when the Fall came? Not much, but to push the blame upon the gracious hunters, which sought to rid the city of the abominations that scourged the land, perhaps with them even being caught up by the madness as well.

    The Lichtenstein Nobility
    The high ups of society, formerly ran by the King and Queen of the great Empire, while also serving under the Priesthood of Blood Healing. They ran the banks, the soldiers, the guards, the food, everything it seemed. Yet when the darkness came, and the blood moon rose over the dark skies, the King and his queen hid in the royal bastions for their baby son Mergo to be born...a holy child, said the church, due to the mother simply becoming pregnant without insemination. But with all else that has happened...what could that "holiness" truly mean? And besides...they only aided the Priesthood in telling the "people" to hunt and destroy the Hunters in the city.

    The Order of Scholars
    A former group of intellectuals, scientists, alchemists and more, they were a great order hoarding information that helped form the Lucidian Empire into the great thing it was today, with them being one of the earliest kingdoms to discover the existence of black powder for weapons. After the rise of the Priesthood, however, they worked solely on studying for them, however, little was seen of them after the city fell and madness reigned, with them locking themselves in their library’s and halls. What could've happened to them, and their vast knowledge?

    The Blood Hunters
    A group generated to slay the beasts, mutants, and monsters that wrought the lands of Lichtenstein on the coming of the Blood Moon, these are warriors spurned by most of the mad now lurking in the city, due to the Priesthood blaming the Blood Moon upon them, or revered due to the last remaining sane (and unmutated) people, due to them actually going out to purge this foul plague which wrought their great Empire. Though many have fallen to the madness, the few that remain still fight to stop this insanity before it gets any worse.

    The Never Ending Questions

    Why did you come to this doomed land? When did you come, before or after the fall? Who are you? What was known for sure is that you had discovered yourself, and a few others, laying in the workshop, the floor peppered with blood, the insignia of the Hunters marking a wall, and a small chair sitting at the end of the room, fluids dripping down. You were connected to the Hunters Serums and as such the Hunters Dream. To a Blood separate than the one the priests peddled. You are a hunter now. You must hunt and slay the beasts of this place, to discover the truth of how the beasts came to be and put an end to the never-ending nightmare destroying Lucidia and Lichtenstein.

    Brief Summary

    So basically this is a Bloodborne RP with my own twists on the lore and some parts of the story. It's basically the same premise though, hunt monsters, discover the truth, and reach the end. Also note that I haven't played the game in bloody ages so I don't remember a lot of the stuff from the game namely weapons and armour and stuff so most of that will also be new/my own take on it. Those of you who haven't also played Bloodborne (or the Dark Soul games too perhaps), it is a gritty, and heavily stylish video game made by the Japanese game company From Software, where you play as a hunter hunting down beasts to cure a mysterious illness or some such thing. So, as you can tell, similar concept. This also might be a little bit of a sequel to an RP I did ages ago...though it might not be I am still on the ropes atm.
