Story
You are suddenly awoken by a thorough chill that pulses through your body. Half-awake, you get out of bed and begin getting dressed. You finish, but then notice something strange: the sun isn't up, yet there is an eerie light filling your room.
You explore the rest of your house and find that you are alone. No family. You step outside. Shadowy mists are flowing everywhere, and disgruntling whispers can be heard from... somewhere. A pang of fear pierces your chest when you look around and see nothing. All that is visible in any direction more than 50 feet outside of your house is a roiling blackness.

About
This is a role-playing game set in a mysterious shadowy realm.
Up to 7 people may join by filling out the form below:
Form
Name:
[You have 15 points to use on the below stats.]
Gender:
Offense:
[This is related to the damage you will deal.]
Defense: [This is related to your resistance to taking damage.]
Agility: [This determines who moves first, second, etc.]
Luck: [This determines you chance to do extra damage, and the amount of extra damage done.]
Ability name: [You get to be creative! I will check this.]
Ability description: [You get to decide! I will check this, too.]

Gameplay
Up to 7 players will be accepted. Players will engage it battles with enemies that I determine. Players will request their actions to me during a battle, and I will do appropriate calculations. Players start at level 1, and will receive experience (XP) to level up for doing damage to enemies, defeating an enemy, and winning a battle (though there may be more).
Outside of battle, I will provide some guidance, but overall the players will request what to do. There are innumerable actions players can choose. When one player suggests an action, I will either post it for players to agree with or shoot down, and if a player consensus has already been reached, I will tell what happens as a result of the players' actions. If the players wish to separate and explore separately, that is fine, they need only request it. However, the hordes of enemies players encounter will NOT be weakened for a solo player.

Any other information needed? Just ask!

[I don't know where Sensei went again! :P ]

You search the misty wall anxiously, but find no way in. The soldiers can be heard conversing, and their footfalls grow louder...

Skills:

Your hound dissolves into bits of light, and you collect the artifacts and hunker down in one of the hollow knolls.

Half an hour later, the storm hits with a violent fury. Winds whip at over 50mph, and snow comes down at nearly half a foot each hour. You become very cold, as even the knolls don't protect you from the blistering winds and stinging snow.

A few hours later, the storm is still raging...

"Be very careful. We have no choice but to walk in between these rows of fire..."

You follow Aspero closely, cautiously avoiding the greedy flames that surround you. Occasionally, the flames wrap into small fire devils.

Aspero catches you watching one. "Those are especially dangerous. They'll turn you to ash in seconds..."

You continue walking. A few minutes later, a small stone catches your eye. It is glowing a soothing blue...

You try to get the man to stand, but he seems incapable of doing so. Seeing no other solution, you put one of the man's arms over your shoulder and begin walking him away from the enclosing shadows.

However, you soon realize that the shadows are closing in from every direction...

You nimbly dash up the rock steps. However, about halfway up you begin to slow. You begin to take so long to get from rock to rock that the rocks begin to creak and crumble beneath your weight...

[I messaged Sensei Bassami and he hasn't replied...]

You send up a fiery flare, and it is immediately gobbled up by a shadowy blob that originates from the castle. Unfortunately, it existed just long enough for the soldiers to notice it...

You hear hollering and the stomping of boots, headed your ways.

I take a quick glance at the top and judge, by the distance, whether I have any chance to reach it or not.
If I can't get to the top, I try to carefully make my way back down.
