Hope's Tale: The Corruption Chronicles is an AU made by ShadowsOfSong. It takes place in a completely different Underground, called the Caverns. Instead of obtaining human SOULs, the monsters guard six different Runestones, one for each element -- Shadow, Light, Fire, Earth, Water, and Electricity -- which are located in the six sectors of the Caverns, which represent the six elements. The sectors are the Crypts, Light City, Hotlands, the Great Forest, Waterfall, and Mech Village. Each monster is connected to their element's Runestone, but if one Runestone gets fully corrupted, every monster of that element gets corrupted, too. *Note: In this AU, there is no indication of a game, AT ALL, so there are no files or anything. So, when I say corrupted, I mean the monster's actual souls were corrupted, not their files.
Once, there was a time when both monsters and humans lived in the Caverns. When a mysterious being led the Humans and Monsters to go to war with each other, the Humans were driven out of the Caverns, into the World Above. The monsters sealed the humans above with a magical spell that only the chosens could break, because their SOULs had two virtues, not just one like most humans. After centuries, one of the chosens crossed the great barrier. That chosen was Chara. With her virtues of Despair and Corruption, a great evil fell upon the once peaceful Caverns.
When Chara began corrupting part of the Runestones, some monsters of each element became corrupted too. A new empire arose from the corrupted monsters, with Chara as their leader. That empire was known as the Empire of Corruption. Most monsters eventually were corrupted in time, however, some monsters resisted the corruption, due to their soul`s energy.
A new prophecy arose, stating that the monsters left would band together with the last chosen human to become the Hope Force. There would be six more powerful monsters that made up the primary force, Sans, Papyrus, Toriel, Asgore, Undyne and Alphys. After a while of waiting, hoping for their legendary savior to come, one small human ventured into the Caverns. That human`s name was Frisk. With her virtues of Hope and Determination, the heroes to the Caverns would be saved. But with the oncoming war, the Cavern`s heroes will need hope to prevail
The six Runestones are:
- The Dark Opal, representing the Shadow element
- The Shining Diamond, representing the Light element
- The Blazing Ruby, representing the Fire element
- The Blooming Emerald, representing the Earth element
- The Sea Sapphire, representing the Water element
- And the Sparked Topaz, representing the Electric element
