(n.) obsession with the exercise of power, especially in the domination of others.
Megalomania is an original fantasy roleplay that opened on January 1st, 2017. The site is hosted on Jcink Premium and has a 3-3-3 max rating; however, mature content will be hidden behind restricted tags so anyone 16 or older can join. We use animanga face claims exclusively. Due to the setting, combat threads will not be uncommon. However, as this site focuses on character/plot development, creativity, and fun, we use the honour system and expect members to work out the aftermath of their threads in a civil and cooperative manner.

Divine intervention brought the world back from the brink of destruction and gave humanity the light of magic, but not without cost. That magic, also known as sillage, was cursed by a different god, leading to mankind's corruption. Incidents involving haywire magic paved the way for many differing opinions and factions. Crux Fidelis' introduction seemed to promise peace and protection for the residents of Sium. On the other hand, the release of the Sins has tipped the scales and now the Cross is becoming overwhelmed. Now that the world is being threatened once more, Crux Fidelis is starting to employ especially forceful techniques, leading to yet more controversy.

For character essentials such as plotters and trackers. You aren't required to make any of these, but it is encouraged since it's easier to acquire and maintain threads that way.

Seracier is Sium's northernmost province. It is easily the coldest and harshest region, but some would argue that it is also the most beautiful. The southern part of the province is dotted with coniferous forests, steadily giving way to barren, frigid tundra halfway through. Along the coast of the Douglit Ocean is the massive Mt. Glaucia. Her peaks run along the entirety of the north coast as if to protect the inhabitants of Seracier from the ocean's wrath. On average, Seracier gets about six hours of daylight each day, that length increasing to roughly nine hours as one travels farther south. It remains cold in the summer, but the snow will melt for a couple of months, bringing forth a burst of wildflowers.

The eastern quadrant of Sium which is known for its humid, rainy weather and tropical rainforest. The forest is impossibly thick and filled with all manner of dangerous/poisonous creatures, but starts to thin out as one heads toward the coast. The climate becomes milder, but the frequent rain remains. Most of the towns and cities in Pluviall are closer to the coast because it is easier and safer to build there. However, there are rumors of fierce people that live in the tropics. Monsoons and cyclones are common in the summer.

Xipilkha is the southern quadrant of Sium. It's hot and humid year-round, save for a couple months in winter where the northernmost part of the province gets some snowfall. Geography-wise, it is a mixture of plains and deciduous forests with many rivers running through it. The soil is fertile and this fact along with the humid climate makes Xipilkha a perfect place for agriculture.

The western province features the most dynamic weather in Sium. The summers are hot and dry whereas the winters are cold with lots of snowfall. A little under half of the province is desert, which then leads into rolling hills and valleys, dotted with copses. Zhyphire is plagued by tornadoes in the early summer.

In certain legends, Empyrean is spoken of as "the highest heaven, said to contain the element of fire". Although this Empyrean is a different place, it is the closest thing to Heaven that Sium has to offer. Situated thousands of feet above the ground, the sizable floating island is home to some of to Sium's richest and most prestigious figures. It also features a huge and expensive entertainment district that boasts practically any activity anyone could ever want from carnival rides to gambling. Most of the designs of the buildings in Empyrean are similar in appearance to Greek architecture.

Alptraum is often referred to as "the realm of the dead". While it's true that most of its population are dead souls, entry into Alptraum is not limited to that particular group. Anything that is able to traverse dimensions could find its way into Alptraum, or guide others into the hellish land. Other than its signature red sky with smoky black clouds, Alptraum doesn't have a static landscape. Everyone sees something different. Existing in Alptraum is like dreaming, but most of the time it is a nightmare. Fears, past memories, and evil spirits will plague astral travelers. This is also where Sins are sent for one week upon death. They retain their powers even while they are dead, and so they search for wayward souls they can torture to sate their boredom.

Megalomania was created by Hiraeth with inspiration from various magic/fantasy series. The skin was coded by Hiraeth (with help from Linn) exclusively for Megalomania using Black's formatted code/quote blocks, Jawn's subforum list mod, Nicole's cbox toggle, and posiden5665's default avatar code. The banner was drawn by irineiji. Icons/macros were provided by FontAwesome. All characters, concepts, and other written works belong to their respective posters. Plagiarism will not be tolerated.
