Everyone wears a mask whether they know it or not. As we go through life we create masks to hide what the pain and hurt we feel inside. I welcome you the the masquerade. Let us give you a taste of what is to come. Shall we begin enjoy the party.
What is the Masquerade itself: It is a game played by those who can call on their masks to use in combat with one another. These masks serve a purpose for if you are defeated and your mask is taken you die. The masks can be a variety of forms and shapes whether they are animals, demons, beasts, or a personification of something. They grant the user a psuedo immortality that will be no more if they loose their mask. Anyone at any stage of life can be a masquerade player from a newborn babe to an age old person. The mask grants you powers based on its form and the fact is you are no longer human if you don the mask.
