We have six clans at the ToK, based off the four canon elements of Golden Sun plus two fanon ones, Sol and Luna. Each clan is awesome, no matter what everyone told you in your introduction topic.
Benefits of joining a clan?
It's fun. Each clan has its own hidden subforum for scheming, chatting, spamming, and the likes.
Spamming intro topics and being patriotic.
In roleplays based on the Temple canon, a person in a certain clan usually has their main character from the same clan.
Does everyone have to join a clan?
No. Plenty of emos nonconformists proudly choose to remain clanless.
In Templeverse roleplays, the clanless are non-adepts.
- [+] Mars
- Mars Leader = Jenna
Why join Mars?
Mars boasts the power of Meteor. Meteor kills you. Period.
Roaring flames, explosions, burning heat put Mars in its place as a clan of raw power. And also they have fireworks.
Will I meet hot chicks in Mars?
- [+] Mercury
- Mercury Leader = Dracobolt
Second = Phoenix
The term "mercurial" is an apt description of the Mercury Clan. Our element is a changeable one, with a volatile, fickle nature. Ice melts to water evaporates into steam. Water flows placidly in a forest stream, or it overpowers a ship and drowns the occupants. Ice numbs and freezes while steam burns. Water puts out fire, and nourishes plants, animals, and humans.
Water is an element of duality, of healing and hurting. Shards of ice sunder flesh; the power of Ply heals it. It is not uncharacteristic for one of the Mercury Clan to have a caring, docile nature, and nor is it unfathomable for another member to be combative and stern.
Both sides of the element's nature, however, lend themselves to what is more commonly considered the domain of Jupiter Adepts, which is the pursuit of knowledge. A distinction may perhaps be made in this way. Those who are children of Jupiter oft crave knowledge for knowledge's sake; those of the Mercury Clan seek knowledge for practical reasons, to learn how to better heal or fight.
This practial seeking of knowledge points to another important trait of Mercury Adepts. They are loyal. Loyal to clan, loyal to friends, loyal to themselves, their personal ideals goals.
This, then is the portrait we wish to paint of out clan when we describe ourselves to outsiders. We would wish them to see loyal, intelligent Adepts who, despite possessing many, varied personalities, all value a certain core of traits above all else. These are Mercury Adepts.
- [+] Jupiter
- Jupiter Leader = Hinoa
Second = Chrono Ivan
Arguably the most passive clan in Weyard, Jupiter stands aside from the passions and whims that govern other clans and remains aloof. They uphold the ideals of logic, wisdom, planning and curiosity underscored by adepts of the wind since before the Lost Age was founded.
Like the strike of lightning they move with precision and swiftness when so motivated, and in terms of psyenergy are perforce precision attackers, seldom missing their target.
Like the wind they pass quietly by others and carry their whisperings to their own ears; mastesr of surveillance and intelligence gathering accurately governs the clan.
And above all, vaunted sorcerers and War Adepts alike praise forethought and planning and a full on strategy when doing anything in life.
- [+] Venus
- Venus Leader = Ryukenshin
Second = Gilgamesh (Boyd)
Venus is a clan of leaders and heroes. Bold, daring, and fearless, our members can be counted on when the going gets tough. We are strong, sturdy, and unflinching in our beliefs. Our will is that of rock. Our resolve is that of stone. No matter how many hardships we face, we shall overcome them.
Within our hands are the powers of both life and death. We can nurture and grow plants, which serve as the very lifeblood of our planet's existance. Our powers of Cure allow us to soothe the wounds of those in need with the mercy of Mother Earth. But every light has a darkness. We are also masters of poisons and spirits. We possess the abilities to call forth wandering souls to attack and haunt our opponents. Even the Grim Reaper himself is subject to our will, and would gladly destroy our enemies.
The powers that we possess can change the very land itself. Earthquakes, rockslides, falling stalagmites, and raw energy itself are all powers at our command. Within our ranks is the creator of ultimate power, the very Wheat Sword itself. Only we have the skills necessary to wield that of the Sol Blade, the greatest weapon to ever reach mortal hands. These strengths make us very versatile and ones not to be trifiled with.
Our inner nature is as very as the rockforms and landmasses of the earth itself. Our minds are that of quartz; coloful and varied. Our prowess is that of sandstone; adaptable and lasting, even after it has crumpled to dust. Our spirit is that of igneous rocks; strong and indestructible. Our hearts are that of diamonds; strong, varied, and beautiful.
We are a clan of healers, destroyers, shamanists, and those who choose none as their mastery. But no matter what, we are indestructible at our core.
- [+] Luna
- Luna Leader = Necare
Second = Dark Wizard
Who the deuce said we don't have a blurb on the "Apply for Clans" thread? GET HIM GET HIM RIGHT NOW.
If that command managed to amuse you, clearly there's something devious about that personality of yours. Why don't we take a walk around the ether pits and see what new shiny sharp things are up for grabs this week? There'll be a complimentary bottle of orphan's blood waiting for you should you chose to give your morality a well-earned rest and relax to the screams of the Torture Chamber.
Don't forget that Luna isn't an EVIL Clan, we just don't see why those doomed to suffering and damnnation in the next life can't suffer equally in this one. Show your true devotion to Sunny Kraden, and join Luna tonight!
YES NIGHT SHUT UP I WAS MAKING A PUN
- [+] Sol
- Sol Leader = Saturos
Second = Peytral
Sol is the Clan of the sun and of light. Our powers have been interpreted and clarified many times, but as of Broken Sanctum we control two things: light, from illusions to lasers; and the attractive force between the elements, called Love by [title=Who coined the four-elements thing in Western philosophy]Empedocles[/title], which allows us to fuse matter together.
Philosophically, Solians frequently have a sense of their own justice, and tend to enjoy lighthearted ribadry with their friends.
Culturally, Solians are often artistic and expressive.
Of course these are merely generalizations, and every Solian has their own reasons for being in the Clan.
