Welcome to Legend of Rebirth!

(otherwise known as LoR Event, or LoRE)

LoRE is story event that is a bit different from past events. Rather than simply being given a set of prompts to follow, your tokota will partake in an adventure where their choices will lead them to different outcomes. You will face many forks in the road along the way, and you may even encounter some of the spirits

In LoRE, no two stories will play out exactly the same way. Are you ready for an adventure?

The Spirits


In the LoRE, you're likely to encounter any of a number of special spirits. The most notable and powerful of these spirits are the 'Greater' spirits described below. It's recommended that you familiarize yourself with them before embarking on your journey.




Aippaq by NorthPaws

:iconaippaq:

Aippaq


Aippaq is worshipped as the god of life and death. He (or She; Aippaq is genderless and will answer to either) is a largely benevolent spirit that doesn't often speak directly to mortals. When he does, his responses are usually calm, thoughtful, and somewhat cryptic. He usually encourages his followers to think through things on their own, rather than directing them to blindly follow his will.


Sikrinerk by NorthPaws

:iconsikrinerk:

Sikrinerk


Sikrinerk is a light spirit that is said to nip heels of dark spirits to keep them at bay. She is also responsible for guiding the lost souls of the dead to Aippaq. She is fiercely protective of her followers and all under her care. She is also quite feisty and playful, quick to make jokes, and unafraid to give people a piece of her mind. She often appears in dreams and visions to speak to her followers.


Meelanik by NorthPaws

:iconmeelanik:

Meelanik


Also known as 'The Devourer'. Meelanik is a dark spirit that is plagued with insatiable hunger.  According to lore, those trapped by his hideous jaws are doomed to spend the rest of eternity trying to escape from his belly, floating around in a void of space. He is selfish, demanding, and extremely powerful. However, he rewards his followers very generously as long as he finds them useful to his plans. Those who disappoint him will find themselves quickly trapped by his jaws.


Nagruk by NorthPaws
:iconthegreatnagruk:

Nagruk



The god of hunting and master of caribou, Nagruk is a light spirit of tundra and forest. He brings his followers good fortune, especially when it comes to hunting. He doesn't often appear to mortals, but when he does, he is generally agreeable and friendly, showing a deep compassion for everyone he meets. He often disguises himself as a human child to solicit stories and information from human settlements.


Borga by NorthPaws

:icontheborga:

Borga


The bringer of snowstorms, frost, and avalanches, Borga is not a dark spirit to be trifled with. He is proud, aggressive, and strong, and he values these same traits in his followers. If angered, the only way to drive off Borga is with fire - he is fearless of everything except that which can melt his ice formations.


Aga by NorthPaws
:iconmotheraga:

Aga


Aga is an enormous light spirit, who makes her appearances mostly when prey is plentiful and the forests are flourishing. She is usually benevolent, slow-moving, and she speaks cryptically, her sleepy words difficult to interpret. But don't let her gentle nature fool you - if angered, Aga will ruthlessly defend both her followers and the forests she is bound to protect.



Sivo by NorthPaws

:iconsivoganik:

Sivoganik


Sivoganik is a dark spirit, driven to sink his long fangs into one thing alone - the mind. He feeds on fear and delights in scaring anyone he comes across, including his own followers. Though his current form was created by the complete degeneration of his own sanity, he experiences moments of lucidity. He is impressed by those who can overcome their own fear, and values this kind of bravery in his followers.



Common Spirits


In addition to the 7 greater spirits, there are many commons spirits that roam Tokotna. These spirits can take on many forms, but are roughly divided into two categories.



Common Dark Spirits


Common Dark Spirits are found all around Tokotna in many varying forms. Some are covered in scales or bark, some have many eyes or limbs, and some seem to bear no resemblance to anything on earth. However, most follow a common blend of animal, human, and foliage that make them easy to identify.  These spirits are often lonely, and will wander towards civilization to seek companionship without Sikrinerk's careful eye on them.

Though these spirits are not inherently evil, when under the influence of a greater dark spirit they can become extremely dangerous.



Common Light Spirits


Common Light Spirits are found all around Tokotna in many varying forms. Most will assume the form of a single animal, a shapeless mote, or rarely, a human. These spirits are benevolent and often friendly, bringing good fortune to those who encounter them. However, some common light spirits also have a streak of mischief and will 'test' those who encounter them with (mostly) harmless pranks. 

When under the influence of a greater light spirit, they are often used as guides and messengers, leading those who encounter them to places or objects that may be important or useful.



The Oracles

:iconsilver-ouroboros::icontokoevents::iconkeksefuzzy::iconscribbles-archive::iconaaydensmith::icondemonicrose::iconnorthpaws: :icondunrosiel:

Among Aippaq's followers are the Oracles, humans who carry out Aippaq's will and deliver divine messages to the people and tokotas of Tokotna. Their duties are often mundane, but of great importance. They are always happy to help guide you on your journey, should you encounter technical difficulties! If you ever have questions about the event, we suggest you consult an oracle on the Frequently Asked Questions

For urgent matters, you can also directly contact the oracles directly by sending a note to Events-Of-Tokotna .

Hi! I had a quick question - if our responses to TokoEvents total 200+ words, can we use them for HP?
Thanks! :D

Yes! I suggest you compile your responses into a literature submission as HU doesn't normally accept comments.

Registration is remaining open for as long as the event is open. It's going to be a long one, so yes, you'll have plenty of time :D

Because I'm rather curious about it since it said it was optional how to make the tracker. May we use the "file/folder" template from the 2017 event for our trackers? I admit I really liked it because it just added to the last event for me so I thought I'd ask. ^^; Sorry if it's a bother.

If you want to use the old folder template (or another template, maybe something you created) as a reference for your character(s) you are totally welcome to!

No bother! The tracker we've made is just a guide. So long as you follow the rules there - LoRE - Event Tracker Instructions the layout is up to you
