Sin Rising Cities - Draft 1
World Overview
The world of Plava is comprised of four continents: Lesuo, Orgaus, Samne and Kleff. These four continents are divided into nations and city-states and widely populated. Continents are traversed on foot as well as in vehicles, sea faring ships and airships. International and intercontinental trade is abundant, and countries striving for power are frequently looking for resources to exploit.
The world of Plava is much like any other, consisting of deserts, grasslands, marshes, mountain ranges and volcanoes.  Lesuo and Kleff are the two largest continents, with Lesuo being the larger of the two. Orgaus follows in size, then the continent of Samne. Plava is scattered with various small islands around the globe, some being non-descript and barren while others are home to untold secrets.
There is no democracy on Plava. Monarchies, Feudalist nations and ruling councils make the decisions of their respective empires and cities. Prava is a world in cons

Sin Rising Characters-Working
Jexx, Age 30
Role: Main Character
Survives to End: Yes
Hair Color: Black
Weapon of Choice: Axe/Pick
Armor: Light plate
Accessories: Spyglass, sunglasses, utility belt
Our hero/villain. Jexx is a miner who over the course of the story, slowly turns to evil. Jexx's weapon of choice is either the mining pick or axe. Jexx starts off wearing typical steampunk attire but after the execution of Sithen, dons more appropriate black clothing.
Short black spikey(ish) hair, brown eyes, and a small goatee. Jexx's demeanor is generally one of sly humor. He's quite attractive to the extent of being disarming. Jexx can almost always be found smirking instead of smiling, as if anyone he's talking to is the focal point of an inside joke. Jexx is muscular, though not bulky; toned instead of outright athletic. Standing about six feet tall with broad shoulders, Jexx is rarely intimidated. As the game progresses we find Jexx is a brilliant strategist and adapts very well to war. Jexx tends

Sin Rising-Story Concept - WIP
Keep in mind this is the main series of events, and does not reflect any side-quests or generally describe the "in-between" sequences.
The game starts in the small mining town of Malek. Jexx is relatively well off, with a large(ish) house, a wife and child. He's never picked up a weapon in his life but as the game progresses, is forced to defend his family. "Monsters" break through the walls of the Malek Mines and start terrorizing the village, but Anerian quickly notices there is reason in their apparent madness. After some time, the townsfolk realize that although they sent for help, they may all be dead before it arrives. Anerian "volunteers" himself and Jexx to defend the mines while the village escapes. It is in the mines they discover a crystal. Grab the crystal, kill the bad guys, all in a day's work.
Enter Sithen, who comes to the town to deliver the aid that was sent for. Sithen however realizes the crystal's power before anyone else, and takes it for himself. Sithen
