1An online, RP-enforced game, The Inquistion: Legacy is sent in an alternate universe called "Urth", where a mad king set off on a religious quest to eradicate magery throughout the world due to the death of his family at the hands of a group of mages known as the Council of Seven. He conquered the known world but for one nation, the Daravi, with whom the Kingdom of Lithmore remains at war even today. The game takes place generations later in the capital of the realm, Lithmore City, where the Church dominates the land whilst mages hide beneath their very noses.²²The main website is [[ here.]]²²----²²!!Tropes that are found in the game:²²* AHomeownerIsYou²* AlchemyIsMagic²* AllDeathsFinal²* AnAdventurerIsYou²* AnEntrepreneurIsYou²* AnyoneCanDie²* BadassNormal: Most combat-oriented, non-mage characters qualify.²* BlueBlood: Many players have a noble character, and they have have powers and rights that non-nobles don't.²* ASCIIArt²* {{Backstory}}: Not only is the game's mythology surprisingly deep and detailed, but characters are required to have one written before joining a guild.²* BurnTheWitch: Pretty much the theme of the game, more or less.²* CatsAreMagic: Player characters don't have cats as pets, because they're taught to be the familiars of mages.²* CityGuards: You can play one.²* CharacterCustomization: In character generation, you pick your height, weight, date of birth, social class, whether or not you're a mage, write a description, and design a wardrobe.
