Twelve years have passed since the fall of Xehanort...
Not long after Xehanort met his end, Sora met with disaster... One fateful night, his home on Destiny Island was set upon by an unknown group of assailants. It was a massacre. When Sora’s room was investigated, it was found in shambles, more so than the others, his bed split into several pieces, and, like the other rooms, soaked in his blood. Judging from the state of things, he had put up a good fight, but must had been overwhelmed. The only recognizable thing of Sora’s that was found was his glove, his hand still firmly inside. The worlds wept the next day, as what few remains of the keyblade master that were found were cast off to sea in a beautiful casket.
Eight, peaceful years passed. Keyblade Masters old and new began appearing across the worlds, passing along the knowledge and responsibility of the keyblade on to a new generation of students. The worlds, while not connected to each other physically, but in spirit and in knowledge, created crossroad worlds between themselves, which all flourished into great and prosperous cities. These crossroad worlds acted as a middle point between worlds, allowing for commerce between worlds, the creation of worldly alliances, travel between different worlds, and much, much more. By the end of those eight years, the number of keyblade wielders had grown significantly and the worlds were all connected in a great web of peace and advancement. And while the Heartless and Nobodies continued to exist, their numbers dwindled at a substantial rate, lower than thought possible, due to the combined efforts of the numerous keyblade wielders and the worlds’ heroes. With the Heartless and Nobodies no longer a looming threat and the worlds’ prosperity, the worlds had truly reached a Golden Age. However, the prosperous worlds and their joyful inhabitants could not have been prepared for what happened next.
A large number of highly-claimed keyblade masters led their followers to attack one of the great crossroad cities, claiming countless innocent lives in the process. When questioned by the survivors, the keyblade masters smiled and stated boldly that they were simply bored. News spread like a wildfire of the 'bored keyblade wielders' who killed and attacked for sport, and a dark stain was embedded into the reputation of all keyblade wielders. As the keyblade masters continued to cut a bloody swath through the worlds, fear grew heavy in the hearts of the innocent, a fear that was eventually extended to all keyblade wielders, both bad and good.
The Worlds' Army was sent against these keyblade wielders in hope of ending their rampage, but fell easily to their superior might and magic. All but the greatest keyblade masters of that era were cut down, with the former, led by Riku, Aqua, and King Mickey, finally forcing the evil masters into retreat. It was a war of attrition, to be sure, and if kept at that rate, the Worlds' Army would eventually defeat the keyblade masters. However, the casualties and damages continued to pile up after nearly two years of conflict and terroristic attacks, and if this war was allowed to run its course at its rate, by the time the keyblade masters fell, the worlds would be in shambles. That's when he appeared, the Eclipse King.
Gowned in black robes and impressive armor, the Eclipse King promised a solution to the problem; a solution that would solve the current predicament, a prevent any future ones from ever occurring again. To capture or kill all the keyblade wielders. While many protested, the recent events swayed the hearts of many more, feeling that, with no threats to the worlds, the keyblade wielders themselves would--and already have--become a threat themselves. In exchenge, the Eclipse King asked for the worlds to lend their power to him, so that he might deal with the threat at hand and establish a method to keep the worlds forever safe from such attacks. Though most were hesitant at first, the worlds slowly began to accept the Eclipse King's terms, their worlds suffering from the constant attacks, and forfeited their power to the king. With more than half of their worlds now backing him, the Eclipse King began what is now know as the Black Dawn Genocide.
In a swift and bloody strike, a massive army of robotic constructs known as Reavers laid waste to the keyblade masters' strongholds, and great warriors of unprecedented strength fell the masters within the week. The worlds cheered for their savior, the Eclipse King, for ending the threat of the evil masters. And he was good to his word, as well, and began capturing and imprisoning keyblade wielders, the fear embedded into the hearts of the innocent by the evil masters overflowing into a fear of all wielders. As the two years passed, more worlds joined the Eclipse King's Worldly Alliance of the Eclipse Kingdom, confident that, under his rule, no more harm would befall the worlds. What was left of the keyblade wielders gathered at the lost world of Disney Castle, hidden from sight by powerful magic, and joined forces with the great masters to form Mickey's Rebellion. However, with the worlds united against them with a deep hatred embedded in their hearts, resistance seems all but futile.
Kingdom Hearts Eclipse will be a unique project, in that, while there is one, overall setting, there can be numerous roleplays set in it, each following a different group through their travels in the story. Though each roleplay may seem separate, actions committed in one roleplay will affect the whole. For example, while Group A is sneaking through Radiant Garden, Group B could be in conflict at Traverse Town, resulting in heightened watch in Traverse Town when Group C arrives and a sudden meeting of Eclipse Army members at Radiant Garden, making it significantly harder for Group A to move about the world.
While the first roleplay, led by my character, will seek to overthrow the Eclipse King, do not feel obligated to follow that path. Each roleplay is allowed to have separate goals and methods, including things largely not connected to the major conflict, such as trying to hide from the Eclipse Army or laying waste and robbing worlds. It is meant to largely be an "open world" roleplay that aims to allow the roleplayers as much freedom as possible.
Though only mine for the time being, this will eventually list all the active groups currently making their way through the story, and will link to each respective roleplay. Further, it will include each group's main goals or interest, as well as the characters that are currently in that group, and much more. Information concerning how these "adventures" are started will be expanded upon later, in the Info section.
