Following the events of "King Takumi is safe!
" from EnderWolf's
journal, and honoring a promise I made, I decided to start an RP of my own. I'm kinda excited, because I feel this would be a great way to do some story telling of my own. I've decided to start this out on a comedic note and maybe get into some deeply feeling stuff later on, but I wanted to experiment with an idea that popped into my head while I was sleeping.
Feel free to jump on in, especially for those coming from EnderWolf's journal. Just keep in mind I may not have the time to update it as I'd like to, considering my day job... :\
In a realm that resembled a beautiful forest, a wise, ancient spirit stood, patiently waiting. He had no particular form; to some he looked like a dire bear. To others, he looked like a wolf. And yet others, an eagle. He was a multi-faceted being, capable of appearing to anyone in any animal form that most appealed to them.
This was the Great Totem, the most powerful spirit of the Spiritual Plane.
His head lifted, his eyes locking onto the golden figure that appeared before him. Her radiant glow brought a smile to his face.
"I knew you would pass your most difficult trial, young totem. Congratulations," he said.
The young cougar totem blushed slightly. "Thank you, great spirit. It is an honor to finally serve you."
"Ah, young one, it is not I that you will be serving," the Great Totem spirit replied. "You have a very special task ahead of you. Your selfless actions for an entire kingdom proved to me that you will be perfect for the real challenges that lie ahead."
With that, he nodded, and a pack of Wolf Totems emerged from the shadows of the forest, dragging something that appeared to be very heavy. Cougarmint's eyes widened at the sheer number of carved stone tablets they were bringing before her. At first glance, she knew that there were hundreds, perhaps thousands, of petitions and prayers for her to sift through.
"These are petitions and requests from all over the kingdom you gave your life for. Because so many have partitioned for you to be their guardian, and because you gave your life for them all, I will be assigning you to that kingdom as their guardian," The Great Totem said with a slightly mischievous smile. "You will have some help of course, as other guardian spirits from other dimensions are there too, but you will be handling the majority of the load."
"That is one huge workload," Cougarmint said with a gulp.
The Great Totem nodded. "Indeed. The largest I've seen to date. But I have faith you will get it done. Go forth, young Totem, and keep your kingdom at peace."
With that, the Great Totem vanished. The poor cougar totem looked at the huge stack of responsibilities in disbelief before grabbing her first tablet.
She let out a deep breath. "Oh boy. Here we go..."
