Meet The Staff!

Blazeh!! Hello! :D I'm the admin of the site; BTACD is my pride and joy. Come on in <3
Savage!! RAZOR NO
Fyfer!! I intend to live forever, or die trying.


Hello and welcome to BTACD, an advanced original fantasy role-play forum in our thirteenth year. Founded on a pet site long ago as a Neopets guild, we've evolved into an inspiring community of role-players and focus our writing on freedom of creativity within the established lore. From elves and dwarves to demons and dragons, we have all of the traditional fantasy species you know and love, as well as many of our own custom breeds. With over seventy playable races and ten solid worlds, anything is possible!

Felnova rejoice! Nightblood has been found, and the goddess Scylla has been calmed!! The storms have stopped and her fury slowly begins to cease. However, the aftermath of the Great Storm remains; there has been much devastation, and the rain has changed much of the Plains in Vystriana to sitting lakes and ponds.

At Angel's Peak in Millirand, in the Darklight mountain range and in Godshome, both located in Felnova, and in the Evylonian city of Heartwood, Verridith's allies gather. Now that the Queen has been found, she moves to relocate her children and reestablish her leadership over the armies that were scattered in the time she's been away. Her hatchlings, Bastien and Kyrelia, are growing well. Will the Faction find them before they're put in a safe, secure place?

The Faction continues to grow, and has even established Orders of Knights to use against their enemies. They have, so far, pierced the borders of several other Realms. As they grow, more and more dragons will be hunted down and slain. It seems that they are unstoppable...

On the other side of the coin, Orochi continues to send his children out, testing the waters and limits of his power. He has made no real move yet, and watches from Nossa'rin as the Faction and the dragon royals tear eachother apart.

The wolves and gryphons have yet to take a true side; the demon Kingdoms all have turned against Faction infiltration. Who knows what may happen next? The Plot Plot Events! Orochi's Reign Rebels' Rise ~ Plot Topics! Knights of the Round Goddess' Lament Hope On The March Of Broken Wings Blood and Darkness

* plot-based // Felnova
A beautiful world filled with wild, lush forests, towering mountains, and incredible beauty. The capitol country of Vystriana is led by the dragon monarchy, the royal bloodline of the Skystrikers. Includes the countries of Vystriana, Alubria, Stroen'na, Yorije, Khankirae and the Myrlands. Felnova is often considered a melting-pot of all the Realms' species; nearly every creature can be found within its borders.

* plot-based // Kurai
A dark world often called the Realm of Demons. Sister-Realm to Felnova; its continents and landmarks are nearly identical. It is a harsh, sunless world filled with scarlet rivers, black earth and white trees. Demons, hellwolves and many others reside within four Kingdoms here: War, Death, Famine and Pestilence.

* plot-based // Xaeri
The wild Realm; the untamed wilderness of Xaeri is a refuge for many trying to escape the wars of Felnova and other worlds. Filled with many unexplored leagues, its landscape was formed by the destroyed soul-essences of Spirit-Weapons long past. Xaeri is primarily populated by the animalistic xeriin, residing in hidden-away villages and hamlets scattered throughout.

* plot-based // Millirand
Original home of dragonkind; one of the first Realms created after the great catastrophe that destroyed the One's single creation. Sister-Realm to Xaeri. Similar to Felnova in many ways, save one; dragonkind is rare, and hidden away in the northern mountains, hunted and despised by their former humanoid subjects.

* plot-based // Evylon
Realm of magical intensity and wild power. Though the portion that has been explored and civilized is beautiful to behold, and home of the esteemed high elves, the land around is much less than habitable. These regions are filled with monsters and creatures, including the rage-maddened bloodwolf.

* plot-based // Lizzarkyth
A massive, sprawling land filled with swamplands and thick forests. Populated by the race of reptilian lyzards, who revere dragons, as well as the rare and elusive unicorn. Called the Undying Realm for the fact that plantlife doesn't seem to die.

A unique Realm split into two distinct segments; Aboveground, and Underground. Ristell is as harsh as it is beautiful, and home to several races native to its intense lands, such as the sphinx, sol'tera, lunari, and more.

* plot-based // Light and Dark
Both Light and Dark Realms are the initial creations of the gods; one, home to the lightbeasts of old, is a world infused with otherworldly light - every flower glistens, every rock blazes, every animal glows. The other, home to the shadowbeasts of yore, is a shadowy place filled with fear and blackness and death. Both, however, are essential to the balance of the Void, and play a key part in the creation of a new Realm.

This is a section dedicated to role-play using BTACD lore - the worlds, the species, the magic, etc - without the sitewide main plot or its events that affect your storylines. It's an alternate universe sandbox where you can write your characters using BTACD lore without the chaos of the main plot!
