The Story of Spellslingers
You are a Spellslinger - a powerful mage, gifted with the power of all forms of magic!
Magical Wonder. In the world of spellslingers, roughly 2 out of every 3 people can wield one type of magic or another. What’s rare however, is that only 1 out of every 10,000 people can wield all types of magic, thanks to having a helix. These types of spellslingers are very powerful.
The Great Vortex. No one knows the origins of the Great Vortex or when exactly it started. Its existence gave birth to magic in this world. Some theorize it was there since time began, others suggest its an evolutionary stage of nature, or even some suggest it’s a gift from powers from another realm. The only known truth is the vortex is powerful and it’s impact in the world can’t be measured.
Helix. Profound and mysterious magical connections that activate in a person’s soul, often coating where their heart is. A Helix allows a person to wield multiple types of magic.
Meet The Heroes
Kyugen was born in the far north into the Frost Lands. Once thought to be impenetrable, these lands had become under siege from strange forces of aggressive creatures that embody rage. Seen as an act of war, Kyugen’s people, including his father, sought to defend their home. The war raged on, until nearly everyone was wiped out. Kyugen, as just a teenager, went against his father’s wishes and went to the battlefield, knowing his incredible powers could be enough to save his people.
Dashing into the battle, Kyugen destroyed more enemies than anyone would think possible. But, his inexperience in warfare costed him dearly. He was caught in trap of fire, burning his entire flesh.
Thanks to the aid of Clericus, Kyugen was able to recover and after several years of training, Kyugen is back in the fight and out for revenge!
There’s still a lot more to learn about Kyugen! You can read Kyugen’s origin story here!
Clericus. A wandering man with powerful healing abilities. Clerics prefers holy magic, but thanks to his helix, can wield all types. He’s most distinctive features is his overly large size upper torso and full golden face mask. He’s a bit mysterious in appearance, but is a very friendly and nice guy looking to help.
Aiden is a passionate Spellslinger with a lot of potential. He’s highly skilled in hand to hand combat and conjuring large quantities of fire. He however struggled with his aim, making him much more of a brawler. This was of course until he picked, or rather stole, his father’s spellguns. His encounter with the mysterious woman has led him into a battle with a rival he didn’t even knew he had.
Yuki Azori a princess born in the North West of the world was recently asked to appoint a knight of protection, as all princesses do. She offered to appoint herself as her knight.

With the recent events transpiring, Yuki’s interests have been peaked, so she seeks to find out who this Hexa really is and get to the bottom of her schemes.
