The Very Simple Origins
Outside on a cool night in Africa, Bredry meditated. His mind closed to all, everything. So when he heard footsteps, he was surprised. his focus should've been to powerful to hear footsteps, yet when the Soul Rebel opened his eyes, he realized why his focus had been lost. "Hey there buddy." he said with a sad smile to the Lion that had appeared beside him. It's aura screamed one of loneliness, and as it lie down looking to the sky, Bredry was reminded of home. And for once since he was a lad of only 10, a tear fell from him. I Wish it could all come back. A laugh could be heard in his mind, one of complete beauty and grace, yet still mocking. And then in all it's power and beauty, the voice of Jah could be heard. As you know, i can not bring it all back Bredry. That would mean destroying this planet, but there is something i can do. Bredry was silent, he knew Jah would continue no matter what the warrior said, I can bring back a piece of it, not a large piece, but a piece none the less.
The Price? There was always a catch with beings of higher power, even ones so benevolent like Jah, Same one for bringing back Prometheus. Another piece of Bredry's soul, the second one of thirteen. And again, a cost that Bredry was willing to give up. Fine. His smooth silky voice started to fade away as he said his last words, Goooood... there will be an island on the east side of Africa. There will be artifacts, but there will be no people, no animals, and only a slight piece of soul. With the God gone, Bredry couldn't contain his extreme happiness and exploded into a dash to the east side of Africa. And there it was, an island bursting to fruition with plant life. It's gonna need a bit of fixin up, but at least its home.
8 months later
It took one month to build what needed to be built, 3 months for wildlife to really pick, and 4 months for everything to come together. He picked a name representing what he called home, the place where he was born, New Typhoid.
Size, ecology, and climate
New Typhoid is a slight bit larger than Alaska, and is filled with plant life. Almost all the plants are abnormally huge compared to the rest of the world, and outside the main area, there is plant life to be seen everywhere. None of it is poisonous, and all of it's edible. Leading many who live here wanting to explore the wild lands. It's a good experience too, as all of the plant life is unique to this island because of where it came from. And for the most part, the weather is nice and cool. Autumn weather through out the first 3 seasons, while winter does bring a wave of cold air, it only gets to around 24 degree's and rarely ever gets snow. The reasoning for this is unknown to Bredry, but he believes it to be because of the Island's origins. Oddly enough, where Bredry lived was more grassland like, but he had been to area's like this before.
Population, wild life, and resources
Around 12 million people live in New Typhoid. A small amount considering the size, but since there's a lot of jungle surrounding the main city, it's to be expected. In the jungle, you'll be finding mainly birds, creatures who have found Typhoid's clean air and nice climate to live in three fourth's of the year. As the birds had the easiest time getting here, you won't be seeing many other animals through the jungle, both a blessing and a curse. Though you will find a few lizards here and there, they won't be too plentiful. The resource is mainly wood. The jungle provides as much wood as necessary, without Bredry taking an overabundance of it. Of course, you can't make weapons based on wood alone, an odd mine is located on the south of the island, the contents of it containing an odd metal that will be explained later.
The Kings and warriors
The Seven Warlords
Though New Typhoid doesn't have one true ruler, these are the people you come to if you want to converse on business or if there's a big problem going on in the city.
Bredry Licrae: The warrior who created this island. He's the main man that people come to talk to since he's been here the longest and is recognized as perhaps the true King of the Island. Bredry doesn't consider himself as this, instead believes himself to still be a warrior, just one that many people do business with. In a battle or war, he is considered the general. And although it's supposed to be equal, the other warlords recognize him as the one who has done battle the most, so both they and the soldiers listen to his command.
Beary Cook: Once a criminal in America, after describing his plight to Bredry and what he has done for his community, Bredry accepted him as a warlord for both his morals and his skills. Although the most human of the seven Warlords, Bredry has shown time and time again that his skills more than make up for. He even stood toe 2 toe to Bredry himself for a while before being bested by the Soul Rebel. And while his blade is worry some, and his guns of technical virtue, Bredry considers Beary a warrior and even friend.
Joey Gooding: This young man came with Beary. Apparently Beary had taken him in when wounded, and trained the young lad to grow with his powers. Originally the boy had very limited control over his power, and almost no physical skill whatsoever, but after being taken in, Beary and his community trained him in ways he never knew possible. Even Bredry considers him a formidable foe, and has stated that multiple times he wouldn't mind having a friendly sparring match with the boy. His aura is even stronger than his body. And Bredry has come to realize the boy as one of the purest people on this planet. (for those that care and remember Soothing Sounds, there will be a blog post soon updating his character)
Xango: Not much is known about the dark skinned man. All that is known is that he has a fearsome amount of power and his aura is one to match Bredry's own. A good relationship can be seen in Bredry's future with the manwith them, thus making him replaceable.
Scar (non permanent): One of the twin mutants, Scar only goes by this nickname of his. His arms are able to morph into blades, and his speed is Mach 5. Although Bredry was able to best him pretty easily, Beary had some slight difficulty and because of his nice personality and lack of other warriors, Bredry made him a warlord. Though the man has a family, and because of this feels he needs to be at home
Titan (non Permanent): The other twin mutant. He's able to grow two extra pairs of arms and has the ability to lift at least ten tons. Also morally respectable, this man is the uncle of Scar's two sons and helps out around the house quite a bit.
Met Kingston (non Permanent): Very poweful, Met has extreme energy manipulation, and was able to challenge Joey in a contest of energy, Sadly, even with Met's energy manipulation and other powers, Joey wiped the floor with him. His character came out when he accepted the defeat in an extremely polite matter. Sadly, in America, he's hoping to become a great baseball player, and only came here to train his powers along side the best.
Standards for Warlord: It actually doesn't take much to become a warlord. Just be powerful or skilled and have a decent heart. The only person able to accept people as warlord's though is Bredry, as he was the one to assign them in the first place.
Out of the 12 million people in New Typhoid, 2 million of them are "soldiers". What that means is that they live a regular life for the most part, rarely ever training with a blade unless they decide to. After all, the seven warlords are powerful enough to handle most situations. But if the time comes when there's a large scale battle, these men are here to fight. Thing is, most of them don't fight, instead they're archers. With a mystical upgrade, courtesy of Bredry (and another piece of his soul). These men fire arrows at speeds way beyond normal. To make it even more worrisome, the metal they use for the arrow heads are only second to adamantium(and everything above it). The metal is found only on the island, and while extremely hard and durable, it's also extremely light, some saying that it's actually more useful than adamantium.
Or village as most people call it. Unlike other empire's the city isn't actually fancy at all. With a park in the middle, most of the houses are made solely from wood, mud, and straw. Most of the houses called huts. A man or family could create something better, but they would have to do it themselves, one of the very few laws part of New typhoid.
The Hall of Typhoid
Perhaps the only place any different than the huts surrounding the village. On the outside, it's a long c building made up competely of metal found in the mines. Though on the inside it's something completely different. It's one long hallway, that's it. But on each side of the hallway are both books and artifacts, the artifacts having descriptions beneath them. It's not velvet lining or anything, but it reminds Bredry of home sweet home. At the Very end of the Hallway is a picture of Bredry and Beary (the lion), in a burst of flames. Under it, the last story written by his people, describing the war in full detail as well as the Hero Bredry. None of the artifacts inside can cause any damage, and the few mystical items have been deactivated by Jah's will.
For a place that's almost self-reliant, there's actually a lot of exports. Metal, fruits (an all year long thing), veggies, wood, animals, meat (exotic), and many other things via a boat that comes in almost every day. Over the course of only two months people made a currency. This currency helps people buy food that want food, and want to work as a miner. Helps people buy clothes for people who want to hunt, etc etc. Bredry has no problem with this, it's a natural part of life. And as long as the community is happy, he's happy.
As of now, the only countries Bredry has relationships with, is the people who buy from his people. And by that, he means he doesn't have any. While it doesn't have to stay this way, Bredry would rather not have someone try to conquer his land, a perfectly understandable quest. The land is fruitful, and oddly enough, new animals are coming every single day. That doesn't mean you can come take our land, and any attempt to do so will be both declined if by request, and by defeat if someone attempts physical means.
Besides the one about building your own home, there's very few laws:
One, don't hurt someone indirectly or directly, emotionally, or physically. If a man wants coke, and you have coke that you want to sell, give it to him. He's an adult, he has a right to do that. If a child ask for some, then decline. It could very well mess with there development. And if that man happens to murder someone, then don't worry, that's his fault, not yours. Also, don't damage others property. that's hurting them financially. If you're being abused and don't say anything, then we can't help you, it's just out of our control. That means SAY SOMETHING.
Two, don't take advantage of the land. This one's pretty simple, this island was pure when you got here, it will be pure when you leave. Houses and stuff, that's all good. But don't go making an energy beam using the tree's of the island for fuel. it's common sense, follow it.
There's only one thing that will happen to you if you break these laws, deportation. Though if you come back, and trust me, I will know if you come back, then you'll be killed. Simple as that, no matter how high the crime.
(That's all for now, i'll be reviewing it tomorrow or sunday for errors. if anyone who's more experienced at this type of thing wants to offer some advice, go on ahead. I'll adjust this accordingly. Also Warlord spots are open, and i'm willing to do business with anyone. Last thing, Joey blog(for those that care and know Soothing sounds) going up probably monday, maybe earlier.)
