Long ago, there lived a primordial race of sentient beings who's name has long since been forgotten to history. There were very few of them, and each had there own view of what should drive someone's life. Their disagreements with each other drove them to a war with their brothers and sisters. This war ended aeons ago, with the deaths of the seven beings. Their bodies have long since decayed, but their technology remains. Rings that harnessed the imagination of their weilders to make colored conructs of solid light. They laid dormant for the greater part of the life of the universe, until the rings decided... They weren't done with the war of their creators.
The seven rings raced through the universe, searching for beings who most represented the ideals of their former masters. The beings that they choose will be the heralds of groups of individuals that they will form. These Orders will then war with each other until one reigns supreme. A endless struggle that will determine the fate of the universe.
The Order of Berserkers (Red): The Berserkers are the most blood thirsty beings in the universe. They believe that life can only continue through the survivors of battle. The strong will survive, the weak will fuel the strong with their deaths. The red rings worn by the Berserkers will grow more powerful with each life it takes.

(OOC) The rings operate the same as lantern rings, but there aren't the same restrictons. Example, a Saint can use his ring if there is not a Paladin in the vicinity. You can make an existing character a member of the Order that most fits their personality. Black and White will not be making an appearence yet. Heralds will act as sort of team leaders. Team pages or PMs are up to the discression of the members of the Orders. (Will edit as needed)
