Okay, this does NOT follow the standard history of the world as we know it for real… this is my own world
The year was 1231 and a Council of creatures was formed; the world was in a constant state of disarray. There were many small groups of ‘creatures’ scattered throughout the world, based solely on their race, and were all doing their best to remain hidden from the humans of the world. The council was made up of ten seats, each seat taken by one member of each face; a vampire, a werewolf, a faerie, an elf and then one of each element. The creatures established this council in order to protect the races from any harm or exploitation.
It was towards the end of the 1300’s that the humans began to grow aware of the creatures and of their council. An Order was created to keep in direct contact with the Council and it created an Accord to keep the entire world at ease. The agreement was that the humans were not to inflict any kind of harm or exploitation against the creatures, who had agreed not to use their abilities/powers to attack the humans for either their amusement or personal gain. This alliance lasted for a long time and the races had slowly begun to re-populate with humans as well as their own kind and other races.
Unfortunately this wouldn’t last forever and the world would then turn into the state that it is today; just less the technological advances that have been made since. Several noblemen took it upon themselves to ask the Council to aid them as mediators during a talk between two neighboring and feuding nations. They agreed, since they did not want bloodshed, and went to where they had been asked to go. Just before they had arrived, they had been joined by a mystery fellow, one unknown to any of the races, warned them of betrayal and was able to offer some proof to his allegations. Upon hearing this, the Council decided to betray the humans before they could be betrayed themselves.
It was the actions made on this night that has led to the bitter feud between the creatures and the humans that will last for centuries to come. Each side claims that they were double crossed by the other, yet neither side has ever tried to find out the truth. The humans have since then begun training what they call Hunters to seek and destroy the creatures so that there can be harmony in their world once again. The creatures and their Council have since gone into hiding once they grew aware of the Hunters and their sadistic methodologies. The creatures were wiped out all across the world and it was soon believed that they had all but been wiped out. Even though it was believed that almost all the creatures were gone, the humans still trained Hunters… you never knew if the numbers could rise again.
And so it is now, seven hundred years later, and the feud is still going strong; now with the races have been repopulated. It is a new age now, with more technological advances and more people in the world; less and less know about the bitter feud that once brought this world to its knees. There is, however, a small band of both creatures and humans that believe that this feud is ridiculous and wish it to end. They have begun digging through the ions of history that has been buried by their own kind to find out exactly what had happened to have caused their harmony to abruptly end.
NOTE: It is possible to be a Hunter and not be against all of the creatures that are on this board. You can be a Hunter of just the werewolves and vampires since they are the more dangerous of the bunch, though elementals can be dangerous if they abuse their powers. Also, you can be a watcher for the hunters, which means that you merely keep tabs on the creatures and never actually engage them in a physical sort of way.
