    MOTU; Universe 55005 - Lore: Great Unrest

    (for the purpose of this fanfiction I am looking to establish my own lore to make a cohesive universe of MOTU/POP/BS/Bravestarr As well to use in future RPG campaigns)

    Time: 27 BH (Before He-man), 1523 AUB or EIC (After Ultimate Battle, or Eternos Imperial Calendar)

    Records shown that discontent and unrest were growing between nations of Eternia, There was a growth of technology mostly due to manipulation of the elusive source called "machine sickness". It would infect plants, animals, and sentient creatures. Though an old sickness. King Miro of Eternos had his Man-at-arms (Dekker) make weapons in order to help keep the peace during rising tensions, This was not abated as a common practice of magic would cause many summonings of demons from darker places in the universe to come and make mischief within the lands.

    A new sorcerer named Count Marzo had used his noble status to gain access to many forms of schools of magic. He fashioned an amulet from Dragons blood and a small vial of water that had touched the fabled "Starseed". This amulet became Marzos source of power which seemed limitless.

    Much of the major problems that were being fought off were held back by either Council of Elders which only intervened in the direst of circumstances which most records could only keep track of two instances in Eternian history. The others were Wun-dar, Savage hero of Eternia. who had been serving Eternia for many years now, though much older, Zodak Mystic Guardian and enforcer to the council of elders and jailer of the snake-men.


    26 BH, 1524 EIC:

    According to records, the first major incident of the great unrest happened in the plains of Perpetua where dragons of Darksmoke came down and began to attack villages because of a supposed attack upon them. it was at this time Wun-dar was unable to stop the dragons and Count Marzo saved a village by animating and powering a stone giant honoring the great god Procrustus, Colossor. Colossor was able to fight back the dragons with ease but was unable to last very long unless its gem received power from Marzo himself. Marzo would relocate Colossor to the stone city of Marbol. Telling its citizens that as long as they serve him, the giant would protect that city.

    Later that year, Wun-dar suffered a great defeat and ultimate demise when he had a confrontation against an upcoming warlord, the warlord who simply called himself "Overlord" found one of an ancient weapon of the past hidden away by the great green goddess of legend who fought with mythical king Grayskull.

    According to the account of a witness who told the tale.

    Wun-dar fought the power of the mighty Overlord near the northern border of the mystic mountains, The two fought hard, there was much power coming from Overlord's weapon which looked like the fabled Star-sword. A blade (according to legend) was crystallized essence of the Starseed itself. Overlord had the upper hand and was going to win when Wun-dar did a mighty cleave and cut the star-sword into two. The goddess with the help of a small creature holding some sort of machine in hand opened a portal and the star-sword was sent through. Overlord followed them and vanished. never to be seen again.

    A funeral was held for the hero of Eternia, Count Marzo used the funeral of Wun-dar to incite anger against King Miro, as his forces could have helped Wun-dar in that battle. It was Captain / Prince Keldor who stuck a blow against the count calling him a coward trying to hide behind the opinions of others. It would be a statement later remembered.

    25 AUB, 1525 EIC

    More anti-technology protests across the kingdom of Eternos, more dukes, and wizards began to openly defy King Miro and join Count Marzo. Captain Keldor tried to bring down civil unrest, Though he was used to the semi-prejudice held to the gar for their advanced ability to use technology and magic which made the other races suspicious of them and their motives.. Captain Keldor was a tactical genius compared to his younger brother Randor. He began a crackdown on dangerous wizards who under orders of Marzo would try to summon demons to wreak havoc on the royal guards and the palace of Eternos itself.

    In the coming months, a confrontation would happen outside the Hall of Wisdom as Count Marzo along with many other disciple wizards and nobles loyal to him would make their intentions known. Prince Keldor desperate to end the battle before it began beseeched the Council of Wisdom for a way to stop Marzo. The council told him they would help give a spell to reflect Marzo's magic back and give Keldor the upper hand which would win him the battle. But this came with a price if he used it. Keldor did not care if he could end Marzo right there.

    During the battle. King Miro and Prince Keldor took on Marzo head-on. Eyewitness to the battle saw the count take the upper hand when he made some sort of threat at the prince. Using the power of the amulet he directed a spell at the prince and fired.. the spell was reflected and hit King Miro instead, The king looked like he was burned in crimson light and was gone. Keldor got the upper hand and disarmed Marzo of his amulet and took him into custody where he was punished by the council of elders. the count would live in exile in a powerless immortal form.

    But the celebration would not last as many speculated that the prince killed his own father during the battle on purpose to gain the throne himself. Prince Randor his younger brother did not believe the stories. But wanted Keldor to prove that he was not the murderous usurper people thought he was. Keldor told the truth of the events and was sent into exile by nobles who mostly felt the wrath of the prince during his crackdowns and did not wish him to be king.

    Prince Randor would be crowned King, With the retiring of Dekker as Man-at-arms, he would pass on the title to his student Duncan. At the idea based on Keldor and Duncan, The king announced a new defenders task force called "The Masters of the Universe" whose sole purpose is to take exceptional individuals who would swear loyalty to the crown and defend all life on Eternia from those who would enslave or destroy Eternia or the universe.

    The coming season would see tryouts from many villages to take on the prestigious title. but would not be the end of the troubles for the masters of the universe.

    Part 2: The Coming of Skeletor

    23 BH / 1527 EIC

    - The Qadians gather in the Vine Jungles to name The young chieftain Carnivous King of the Qadian peoples. He was named after the great hunt where he got the heart of the largest shadow beast that dwelled in the caves of the Mystic Mountains.

    - Small skirmishes between the newly formed "Masters of the Universe" and a small army of mages led by the former lieutenant of Count Marzo, The Enchantress. Though having an initial advantage and costing the lives of Masters "Verge", "Granor" and "Toranus". Distinguished in the counter-attacks was an up and comer "Krass" who earned the name "Ram-man" for the magical plate he wore on his shoulders and head allowed him to absorb force against him. With the new Man-at-arms strategies, they pushed her back to her floating mountain which they were unable to capture.

    - 2 years after the fight against Marzo, the Council of Elders made a shocking decision to close its doors to the public. their last words to the peoples of Eternia "To seek wisdom in each other and strive for better". Many make pilgrimages every year in hopes to get a chance to meet the council. many think it is the end of times...

    - Upon a royal hunt, King Randor came across a crashed ship that fell from the skies. breaking in he saved the pilot from a fiery death. The pilot was named Marlena. it was not long before the king began to court the lady from another world. Information given is that lady Marlena comes from a planet called "Urth" (though spelled differently). the planet is a wonder of technology and does not live off of magic as Eternia does.

    -A skirmish was found in a town called Noella, which was attacked by a giant wizard named Morgoth. he enslaved the people of the town with the help of a creature named Prahvus. A stranger called "The Sorceress" was able to save the town and banish Morgoth.

    20 BH / 1530 EIC

    - first attack since the fall of Marzo, Many port cities in the dark hemisphere have fallen under the rule of a demon named Skeletor. using an army of humanoid robots, each of these robots having a symbol of an ancient enemy of Eternia, "The Horde". Cities of Rockport, Stardia, Fireside are now under this "Skeletor's" control.

    -Months into the initial fighting against these forces, newly recruited "Masters" have fallen to Skeletors forces or to the demon himself. King Randor sought answers from the Council of Elders, but they gave no heed. Later the King called for armies of Eternia to help muster any force to stem the tide of this rising demon.

    19 BH / 1531 EIC

    - Masters are called to disputes north of the mystic mountains between the cities of Lorn and Thorn in Perpetua valley. The lonely lake where much of the water is used for farming and the two growing cities are fighting over the farming territory. It was at great cost and help from the Avian Master "Stratos", that it was a plot of deception of a loyal follower and commander of the forces of Skeletor. Evil-lyn fought against Stratos one on one, she was captured and was put into the Eternos prison waiting to stand trial.

    - Lady Marlena met in council with many of peoples of Avion, Andreenos, Arcadia, Veridas, And the city of Kep-teth Amun in the Sands of Time. Helping King Randor by establishing relations with these cities to help strengthen the resolve to fight off influences and disruptions from Skeletor.

    - last few months saw holographic messages sent to many kingdoms across the light and western half of the dark hemisphere. The demon Skeletor announced his plans to bring full might and power of the Horde unless all bow down to him. all kingdoms have 1 year to decide to submit to Skeletors rule or to be crushed by his forces.

    - Eternos put much effort into penetrating into the eastern half of the dark hemisphere. All ports were controlled and the inland battlefields were blocked off by the horde robotic troopers. no inch was gained but none was lost. clearly, Skeletor was building his forces, but with no real intelligence on where or how his troops were being made. King Randor put Man-at-arms and his elite task force of Masters to the job of finding out how to bring an end to this war before it starts or it would cost all of Eternia.

    Coming soon.... Part 3: The end of the great unrest.

    Officially? No. RPGs are open like that. I wanted to create my own setting that I could document and leave open bits for players to jump in.

    Cool to see other people developing their own full-fledged fanon versions of the Motuverse. May I ask why you chose number 55005 for your version?

    Well there are two explanations. One is true the other is complete BS catering to a mans need for meticulous and arbitrary organization.

    1) it was made within the curve of major continuities that matter
    Mini comics, filmation, new adventures, 2002, and the classics line. So the first five refers to classic line, 500 refers to within the finite curve in which it exists in that continuity and version 5 of that timeline.

    2) I like the numbers 5 and 0 and try to make anything work around those numbers.
