PostSubject: Read this be4 entering the world of ran^^   Fri Jun 13, 2008 6:38 am

The Omen began 18 years ago. A terrifying solar eclipse engulfed the skies above Asia. From this gaping darkness, a vicious torrent of meteors hurtled down, leaving a wake of smoldering rubble and scorched earth.

Chaos and paranoia swept over Asia, forcing the rest of the world to quarantine the continent, an island onto itself.

Two years later, from this apocalyptic wreckage, a clandestine organization known only as the Sacred Financial Group ascended to power, shrouded in myth and mystery, brimming with untold wealth and influence.

The Group would found four schools, each one unique in its own way: Sacred Gate, Mystic Peak, Phoenix, and Leonair Campus.

Only the smartest, strongest, fittest students were recruited to these institutions. Yet beneath its quiet façade of learning and academia, an unsettling truth began to surface. These were no ordinary schools. Their infrastructures, rising menacingly above all others, were strange and alien in design, as if echoing an ominous, inescapable fate.

Suspicion grew. Where these sports institutions meant to breed a new generation of genetically-enhanced athletes? Where they military centers meant to recruit and train bio-engineered soldiers?

Soon, rumors began to spread about the alarming activities conducted within the four campuses. Students, they said, were being trained in cryptic, deadly forms of combat beyond the understanding of even the military’s most accomplished intelligence agencies; they were studying forbidden scrolls and texts believed to hold incomprehensible, supernatural power—power to create as well as destroy; and being taught the use of weapons exiled long ago for their genocidal role in the Ancient Wars.

The question was: Why? Why train these students in such brutal arts?

The answer would arrive with startling implications. A dimensional riff some attribute to the meteor storm had opened the gates to a demonic realm, poisoning the living and possessing the dead.

Only the four schools proved immune to this paranormal plague. Force shields were believed to protect the boundaries of the four schools and its students, keeping them safe within the schools’ borders.

The shields, however, were beginning to show signs of weakness. There were reports of creatures infiltrating school grounds and of students being taken almost daily, never to be seen again.

It was only a matter of time…

Leonair in the East was the first of the four to fall, its entire student populace devoured seemingly overnight, the campus left a graveyard of memory.

Of those who have attempted to brave the haunted campus grounds of Leonair since, few have returned, and those that have, speke tremulously of a presence so dark, so evil, it would in time, come to destroy all mankind.

So many questions remain unanswered. What caused the meteor shower? From what dimension did this supernatural evil originate from? How did the Sacred Financial Group know of the storm’s destructive, malevolent power?

Today, everything is calm and peaceful at the three schools, even as they wonder which of them is next.

When will their time come? How long will their shields hold?

For now, the students continue their studies.

Waiting.

Training.

Praying.

Classes


Brawling



To most people, Brawling is considered a primitive, outdated course. This, however, is a grave misconception. To major in Brawling, students must harness latent powers stored deep within their bodies. Only students demonstrating high strength and coordination test scores qualify for this course, as Brawlers have shunned all armed conflict, choosing instead to embrace combat in its purest, basest form.

Brawlers can choose to minor in Fist Strikes, where they learn to channel their kinetic energy into lightning-quick pugilistic attacks. These Brawling students who focus on hand speed tend to rely on the violent volume of their rapid-fire, two-fisted strikes to knock out their opponents. In contrast, Brawlers who minor in Kick Strikes concentrate on their kicking power, which may be slower and more deliberate, but deal more damage. For these Brawlers, one spinning leg strike, delivered with powerful precision, is often all they need to end a fight.

Students of this course will eventually become masters of close range combat, the brutal poetry of their movement a sight to behold. That is, if you can see it.


Swordsmanship



The Art of the Sword, once banished for its role in numerous bloody conflicts, has been reinstated in the schools’ curriculum. However, only applicants who tested highly in both strength and agility can apply to this course.



Students in this course must develop not only their strength but their dexterity as well, in order to perform the various, intricate, high-stakes swordplay demanded by their discipline, where the slightest error in judgment can have dire consequences not only for their opponents, but for themselves as well.

By honing their dexterity, some Swordsmen choose to minor in Blades, using these lighter, shorter weapons to create a higher defense radius for themselves, where they can thrust and parry with ease and flow, even as they sacrifice low base damage.

Some Swordsmen, on the other hand, choose to minor in Broadswords. This minor limits their defensive abilities but also multiplies their offensive output, so that when an opponent does meet the end of their blade, the blow is swift, clean, and most of all, final.

Either minor is equally formidable in higher grade levels but be warned—for those who major in Swordsmanship, theirs is a life lived not only on the edge but by the edge.

Archery



The course of Archery is perhaps the most artistic of the four courses, an enchanting visual symphony of flying arrows and twanging bows.

Applicants to Archery must show high dexterity and agility test scores to pass the course.


Archery students can choose to minor in Short Bows, which produce higher minimum damage to start off with and are extremely accurate; or Long Bows, which deal higher maximum damage at higher grade levels but can be prone to misses.

Graduates of Archery boast that the mark of a true archer is that they never miss one.

Shamanism



The fusion between martial arts and Qi-- the energy that flows through and around the human body, physically and psychically— is a difficult idea to comprehend for outsiders to the practice of Shamanism, but for those students who choose this course, this much they know: one cannot exist without the other. The most powerful martial arts are driven by Zen-like spirituality and the most powerful magic effected only through flawless physical execution.

Students of Shamanism must grade highly in both intelligence and agility.

Accomplished Shamans are students who can sway the fate of entire battles with a myriad of skills and abilities. Shamans can minor in Spears, which gives them heightened attack power but prevents them from using spells. To cast spells, Shamans need to minor in Wands, which allows them to cast powerful healing and buffering spells in support of fellow students.

It always helps to have Shamans in your class because, as you will realize soon enough during your tenure on campus, the balance of your existence may depend on them.


Campuses



Sacred Gate Campus



Sacred Gate Campus is the first educational institution built by the Sacred Financial Group. On the surface, all looks normal, but there are troubling undercurrents that lay beneath its design. Rumor has it that supernatural experiments are being conducted below Sacred Gate’s underground facilities. From the outside, the school’s veneer seems to reflect the Sacred Financial Group’s commitment to time-honored values, with its traditional, oriental architecture, brick-lined walkways, pagodas, florid gardens and exotic fountains.

In the middle of the school, running through its main walkway, a long and winding stone dragon weaves below and above ground, its head looming over Sacred Gate’s main reflecting pool. Awe inspiring and serene, Sacred Gate Campus is the epitome of Eastern calm.

Or is it?

Mystic Peak Campus



Mystic Peak is the second campus to be created by the Sacred Financial Group. For strategic reasons, the campus is located on the Northern area of RAN world. Although the curriculum of Mystic Peak is similar to that of the other schools, its dedication to the arts is what sets Mystic Peak apart. This classical approach has helped make Mystic Peak the most picturesque of the schools. Classrooms are surrounded by lush, verdant greens and trees, fields of blooming flowers and plants that add color and vibrancy to an already scenic campus. Stained glass windows frame the campus buildings with an air of solemn grandeur.

A grand staircase in the center of the campus offers a tremendous view of the flora and fauna that envelops the inside of this campus.

Phoenix Campus



Phoenix campus is the third educational institution of the Sacred Financial Group. Its campus is located in the Southern area of the RAN world. Together with the other two schools, Phoenix comprises a solid defense system against, with Phoenix catering mostly to the students of high society families. Phoenix is renowned for its advanced engineering curriculum, offering the engineers and scientists of tomorrow access to the most expensive and advanced technology, free to test out their theories and experiments.

Sprawling with large classrooms and various futuristic activity centers, Phoenix is most proud of its ever-expanding libraries and science facilities. To some, it is a rich and fertile breeding ground of knowledge and learning, but to others, it is a cold, mechanical place, where the mind is valued above everything else.

Leonair Campus



The last of the campuses founded by the Sacred Financial Group, Leonair lays to the East, but due to a yet unexplained accident, the campus no longer exists. It lies in ruins, a haunting tomb that serves as a terrifying reminder of a reckoning long past. Strange, supernatural occurrences at the campus are being reported everyday. Some students, curious about the events surrounding the enigmatic campus, have ventured to Leonair, never to return.

Those that do make it back, tell shuddering tales of a giant lion statue standing menacingly in the darkness, where trees hang withered and dead like skeletal hands, and where the surviving plant life has mutated into a savage species that preys on the humans foolish enough to venture into its path. Once proud and majestic, Leonair is no more, a black hole, where only nightmares thrive.
