What is it you wish to find, traveler?
Hello and welcome to BTACD, an immersive high fantasy play-by-post role-play forum in our fourteenth 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!
The Twin War has grown to overtake all of Felnova, and the influence of the Faction of Hope and Orochi have reached across the Realms. Disease runs rampant as dark gods roam the Realms freely. Felnova's balance has been severely damaged, and terror grips its inhabitants, even as its balance-Realm of Kurai begins to suffer as well. Other Realms are laden with Felnovian refugees to the point of endangering their resources, as chaos descends upon all.
An alliance has been born between the King of Snakes, Orochi Godslayer, and the leader of the Faction of Hope, Priestess Nina. Both seek the utter destruction of the balance-keeping royal dragons, and the eradication of dragonkind. Where the Faction seeks for humanoids to rise beyond the tyranny of the ruling drakes, the snakekind seeks total control of all races, humanoid and not. Though they are allied with a common goal now, the alliance is unstable, and tensions run high.
At last, the Vystrian forces have come together and gathered enough meager strength to begin fighting back; but they are few against many, and hope is a smoldering ember, vulnerable to the despairing tide of war. Though the reemergence of the queen has emboldened her people, the fight will be one of the most difficult battles of the Realm's life thusfar.
