Truth of the Gods OOC

In the modern age, few people look back at the world. Some see perfection in the past, and stupidity in the future. God has sent godly fragments called "Elements" to a few chosen people, As well as two Sages to guide these people. The Sages have gone through the same trials and survived, And are now called upon by God to assist in the process of combining the Reality of Humans and the Reality of the Gods. Throughout the RP everyone shall learn the truth, as well as what truly happened in the past. As well as what Elements truly are, For currently they exist as more or less a "Second Spirit" tied more to the Reality of Gods then to Humans. The Elements have control over one Element, as well as sometimes have similar looks to an Element.

((Ex. Water Element would be a person made of water, as well as control all forms of liquid as they get stronger. However a Mind Element could look like a normal person, but have Psychic and Mindfucking abilities.))

Each person get's One element that can be anything you think of ((within reason)). I know some that are out there that many people may not consider to be Elements are: Mind, Blade, Explosion, Alcohol, Animal, Life/Death ((same thing, life is weather you live or die, and death is opposite and emo)) Mud, Technology, Sound. Use your imagination, however depending on the Element I may need editing.

My character is one of the two Sages ((the other being played by Comedi)) so lets start explaining a bit more about Elements

Elements are either a fragment of a God, Or Generated by an Powerful and Imaginative subconscious
((Ex. of fragment: my character Element IS Poseidon, THE most powerful Water Element))
((Ex. of self-gen.: Comedi's Element is called Lefty, a self generated Shadow Element))

Fragments of Gods are usually stronger and you could think of them more as a "Pre-Set Build" if you ever played something like D&D. Self-Generated Elements however are more like "Custom Class" on set guidelines if that makes sense. Personally I find that Self-Gen. would take quite a bit more work to have them become effective early in the RP, However only a few people will be allowed to have a Fragment of a God as allowed by Comedi and Myself. ((Self-Gen. are really for people RPing both a Character and an Element, so you don't have to think TOO hard about everything))


Both the Character and the Element have to have one of the three types ((Fourth is Sage only)):

Angelic = Spirit based. Heals self very fast, can use Ki/Chi based abilities at later stages of RP.

Demonic = Body based. Gets stronger when hurt badly ((you can think of more damage = higher HP lol)) has enough willpower to keep fighting when K.O.

Psychotic = Mind based. Your Mind has been shattered multiple times beyond normal repair, Giving you No sense of urgency, A.D.D., and Memory issues sometimes. Once fixed you basically become a Genus as well as can use Psychic to a great extent regardless of Element.

Sage = The mastery of all three types, Only sages have this and even then they are dominantly one of the three. ((However they are on many restrictions by God because he wanted this to be a challenge))

Everyone will be playing both a normal Character based in a 2007ish setting, as well as their Element. The only exception is if two people are joint-RPing, one being the Character and the other being the Element. Please keep in mind that an Element is in a 3rd reality that has many alterations to our own reality as explained further in the story.

Skeles:

Human

Name: ((no shit))
Age: ((between 14 and 50))
Gender: ((no shit))
Appearance: ((Basic enough, please don't describe every little detail if its unnecessary))
Personality: ((Simple enough . . . I think . . .))
Bio: ((Simple enough, except for Me and Comedi because we're Sages))
Type: ((Angelic, Demonic, Or Psychotic. Simple as that))
Connection to Element: ((how your character mentally/physically bonds with your Element.))

Element

Origin: ((Either from third reality as a godly shard, or brand new Element generated. New Element can be a normal one like Water or Lava or something, its just a new "persona" of that Element you could say))
Name: ((If newly generated, then either nickname or " ", godly shard needs name confirmation))
Element: ((Duh . . . Possibly going to put a list of possible choices if I'm bored later today and if not then tomorrow))
Age: ((from like . . . -7 days to Infinity depending on circumstances))
Gender: ((Duh))
Level: ((Going to edit in/out of Skele, basically how much the Element is Bonded to the human, ending when they have almost the same consciousness. Going to post along with accepted character, can and will change over time.))
Bio: ((describe the Element a bit more personalty/background-wise . . . I know ima get a LOT of e-mails about this bit))
Type: ((same as for human, Angelic, Demonic, or Psychotic. These will be used later in the story mostly for "upgrades"))
Manifestation point: ((Where on your Human does this Element choose to make a house in))


Level guide:

Level -2: Element has yet to arrive/generate

Level -1: Element lies dormant until Human acknowledges Elements

Level 0: Human acknowledges Element, communication available.

Level 1: Human can preform weak Element's moves with HUGE effort

Level 2: Empathy link to Element ((Can sense emotions)) can preform weak and medium Elements moves with Great effort

Level 3: Full consciousness fusion, can preform all Element's moves with medium effort.


Accepted Characters:

Kaichou Hogaraka, Poseidon = Level 3

Matt Walken, Lefty = Level 3

Taiju Soulin, Ender = Level 1

Yasmine Grim, Death = Level -1
James Altor, Denity = Level 2
____________________________

NPC List:

Various God's and Goddesses . . . as well as The God . . .

Rusky


_____________________________


Rules:

~"Semi-Lit" at least One paragraph for Human and one for Element with decent grammar. Think of this as the lowest of the middle in skill level.

~No Blunt perversion, Basically don't describe perverted acts in too much detail (Elements may have a lot of awkward perverted moments because of their situation at times)

~No Godmodding, speaks for itself, only Elements cannot "Die" but they can be K.O. for a shitlong time or "Coma" if serious mental scars along with asskicking

~Don't drop out, At least have the decency of suicide and tying up loose ends if you HAVE to quit.

~Everyone has a weak-point, but you don't have to say it. Even if the foe looks impossible, the strangest things may kill it.

~Only Sage characters can control Major Npc actions, mostly because of the depth and refrences we make to another thing we have done, nothing personal just we like to make things insane. PM me if any questions on what is Major and Minor Npc actions.

Damn that's a long post!

PostSubject: Re: Truth of the Gods   Fri Sep 17, 2010 8:45 pm

My Character:

Human~

Name: Kaichou Hogaraka

Age: Sage, appears 25

Gender: Male

Appearance: Usually walking around in a simple Dark green t-shirt and Black cargo pants, Kaichou looks like a normal person, but once you look past his usual smiling face into his deep Grey-Blue Eyes, you can see he is a man who has seen more then his fair share of the world, and needs to do something about it. His hairstyle is, however, Deceptive. He always has his Red-Gold hair in a short ponytail, and his beard is only a simple full goatee with the end jutting out like a spike. Usualy he looks more like a Hobo that got a shave and a free Whiskey.

Personality: Very fatherly to those who he accepts, otherwise very happy in a drunken stupor. Sometimes, without alcohol, he becomes logically depressed as many who remember the days of the Celtic-Irish do. Once this usually happens he prefers to be alone unless you want to hear a long story about how messed up this world has become. When not fully drunk or depressed, Kai usually maintains a happy and jokingly, but serious and blunt attitude. Many say his Element has had almost too much influence on his personality.

Bio: Born as a simple Irishman in the deserts of SouthWest USA, Kai never felt like he belonged anywhere, until the day he discovered the Elements. For many years and many battles afterward he remained both Blind and Deaf to the Elemental Reality, Relying on his comrades to assist him. Just recently, he has been asked to Assist God in teaching the rest of the world about Elements, as well as begin merging this reality with the Elemental Reality like it was in the ancient times.

Type: Sage, Primary Demonic

Connection to Element: When Kai was at a tender age of 3, Poseidon has been watching over him many times. Upon realizing this at age 16, Kai noticed how many times he had a near death experience saved by Poseidon. Sense then, they have become great partners and work together rather well- Although they both decide to pull pranks on each other for shits and giggles.


Element~

Origin: Godly Fragment, Although Whole. He is the actual God of Water Poseidon

Name: Poseidon, Usually prefers to go by Water

Element: Water

Age: Unknown

Gender: Male

Level: Level 3, full consciousness bond.

Bio: Water is usually very Humble and agreeable. Sometimes pulls pranks on people then honestly admits it afterward. Seems to have bonded consciousness a little too well with Kaichou sometimes.

Type: Demonic

Manifestation point: The Left half of Kaichou's Head.

Okay, from what I've been seeing, this should be a pretty good personal character.

]color=red]Human:

Name: Matt Walken

Age: Unknown, but looks like a 16-year old.

Gender: Male


Appearence: 6'1", about 153 lbs, not muscular but can surprisingly fight when angry. Hair is a dark blond, almost brown, kept short but scattered. No bangs due to them continually getting in his eyes. Eyes are dark brown with small oval glasses. Simple look, not much a warrior, more of a guy who wouldn't be able to focus on a fight because of trivia from old movies.


Bio: Lived long life while educating self on how to act "normal" while secretly being completely out of his mind, became a sage minus the awesome beard because Lefty doesn't want hair on his face distracting him.

Type: Sage with a dominant psychotic

Connection: Lefty's always been there, but in hiding, revealed himself through small notes he would leave in awkward places, eventually revealing himself via audio recording, he's a bit of an asshole and likes screwing with people, the complete opposite of myself, which he seems to really enjoy. He also enjoys where he lives when not in the open, "its pretty obvious why his name is Lefty when he lives in my left testicle".

[/color]


Element:

Name: Lefty

Origin: Started forming in left testicle around age 15, grew into a powerhouse jackass that won't leave Matt's left nut.


Element: Shadow

Age: Several months

Gender: Guy.

Level: 3, a full concious bond.

Bio: Personality: Complete opposite of Matt, likes messing with people and other things, futzes with things he has no right to futz with, kind of like a combination between the 2 types of Daffy Duck (the completely insane one and the greedy cowardly one - the coward),he rushes headfirst into enemy fire because he can,if he loses his legs he walks on his hands,he will steal kills if given the chance, he's a cheap bastard that'll pull down the enemies pants.

Appearance: Looks like a combination of Matt (clothes, body type, slightly darker skin with glowing red eyes) and daffy duck (classic, limbs are more animated and stretchy, larger eye sockets).



How's that?

. . . Well that explains the nickname.

Copy-pasta Taiju and Ender here so that all the character sheets are in one place.

Human

Name: Taiju Soulin (if you really get him to like you, he might go by Tai, though he doesn't even like his name much, it being weird as it is)
Age: 19
Gender: Male

Appearance: Taiju is approximately 5’11 and about 130 lbs; an average-looking build, although he does have a fair trace of muscle from the training he does on his own. His hair is a medium brown and has a pointed tail cut; longer in the back than in the front, where the longer hair goes to the middle of his shoulder blades. His bangs are scattered, long enough to frame about half of his face and usually off to the sides. His eyes are hazel, and he wears rectangular glasses. His overall facial features are plain, although he looks like he would be more at home in a library than anywhere else.

His attire is likewise plain, typically consisting of jeans and dark t-shirts, rarely with any sort of design. He wears the occasional wristband but is not likely to accessorize with more than a digital wristwatch. He also wears a copper coin around his neck, printed with a wolf's paw print; it has sentimental value, though he won't explain why.

Personality: Taiju has a preference to be left alone. He generally won't care about the world around him as long as it doesn't try to bother him first. He's intelligent, but will often come off as cold or indifferent to people around him--it's not exactly intentional, so much as he doesn't always realize that how he interprets something won't be the same to others and his social skills are rather lacking. People are too complicated to him and he doesn't particularly like the majority of them, anyway. If someone can work past that, Taiju can be a decent enough person, it's just a matter of getting there. In his spare time, Taiju divides his time between books and, of all things, sword training, the lessons for which he's been paying for out of his pocket for years. He also draws a little, but prefers not to advertise that talent.

Bio: As a teenager, Taiju's life appeared simple enough from the outside. He lived with his mother, father, and younger brother on the outskirts of town. His father, however, held to very "traditional" roles of how men and women should act in society and tried to raise his sons as such. Taiju was quick to reject the ideas, not liking how his father viewed either sex or trying to be forced into giving up things he enjoyed. His younger brother embraced the traditions, but Taiju learned to despise his father by the age of eleven, but loved his mother, who was the only one in the household who sympathized with him and encouraged his hobbies. He and his father would get into fights for years, a select few of them violent.

There was little he could do until he was eighteen, at which point he left for college. He scrapes by without any help from his parents. He wishes he could return home and visit his mother, but his father wouldn't have it. His father often sends letters criticizing Taiju's choice to go to school and various other things, usually promising that no good will come of it and not to ask for help.

As of late, Taiju's also put up with the odd twitch in his right hand when he's working or sparring. He swears it happens more when he talks to someone or himself but can't be sure, and he can't afford to ask a doctor if something's wrong. Ends up sitting on his hand a lot to get work done and swearing profusely when it happens while he's sparring.

Type: Demonic

Connection to Element: Taiju often had a view of himself as a different person--someone who didn't care about anything and didn't think about the things he does. His Element embodies this, although to a rather negative extent.

Element

Origin: Newly generated shortly after Taiju left for college and was overcome by stress and various negative emotions. Liked making snarky comments about Taiju's fighting ability that go unheard.
Name: Chose the name Ender for himself simply because he liked the sound of it.
Element: Blade
Age: Approximately one year, give or take a couple of months.
Gender: Male
Level: Level 1. The two are connected on a base level at the moment, though Taiju's rather unaware of his existence.

Bio: Came into existence shortly after Taiju left for college. Taiju hasn't been in a particularly good mood since beginning college a year ago, usually in some sort of angry or depressed temperament. He works out his stress with sparring and spends a lot of time wishing he could be someone and somewhere else, and in a way Ender was born from this. Since Taiju's unaware of Ender's existence, Ender spends a lot of time trying to gain attention. Mostly ends up making Taiju's hand twitch, which doesn't end up being beneficial.

Ender tends to act very sharp, cocky, and sarcastic--as Taiju wanted, not bothered by anyone and unaffected by any sort of personal problems. He's most likely to have a smirk plastered across his face at any given time and a sarcastic comment ready to be used. He's quick to criticize if it'll amuse him, and doesn't take much interest in other people. He does have a certain fondness for Taiju but sure as hell won't show it, chalking any like of the boy up to being bonded and nothing more.

In appearance, Ender is similar to Taiju, though he's a little taller and thinner, keeps his hair at about an inch in length, and doesn't wear glasses. He's also a little more prone to wearing lighter colors, but likewise keeps his attire plain.

Type:
Demonic

Manifestation point:
Right hand--almost to spite the fact that Taiju is left-handed.

Syl, freakin' sweet, man! A demonic blade named "ender"? Almost makes me want to rethink Lefty a little. (But the character and the confusion just work so well together!) What do you think of his name?

Edit: and by his, I mean Lefty's.

Very nice XD as before, only one small thing +o

because only the two sages are suppost to know what elements are at first XD can I ask you to make your character think he's going a bit crazy because he feels twitching in his right hand when he talks to himself? ((the twitching is like the element banging on the walls of his house)) XD he can still talk to Ender, only he won't get direct responses, more like guess responses based on what he's feeling as well as the twitching ((Elemental sight/hearing is unlocked by a Sage upon visit, both Kai, and Matt will appear because they kinda forced too XD))

XD once that is changed, then character accepted XD and now just to wait for more people

Yeah, I'll go ahead and edit that. I was a little unsure of my element there anyway and figured I'd have to fix something.

Also, Comedi, glad you like him so much. c: Lefty's a bit of an odd name to me but it does fit as a nickname, so I like it enough.

I don't think we'll get three more, to be honest. Or any more. Site's been a bit slow as of late, like I said earlier, and we're not likely to get more people. A lot of our more experienced members are busy with work and college, and less experienced don't get into a lot of roleplays, especially bigger ones. We might have to wing it as is.

Although Syl, I have one kinda big question. +o Where do we actually post the RP itself . . . ^^" new to forum RPing

Since it's a group roleplay, you'll just post the threat right under the Intermediate heading. If it were only two people, it'd go in the One on One section, but since it isn't, in the Intermediate grouping is fine.

I was thinking of throwing a stock character in but I'll go with this instead.

Name: Yasmine Grim
Age: 14
Gender: Female
Appearance: A small, shy girl that likes the Gothic style of fashion. She tends to wear only a purple hair clip in the black bob she has. Otherwise, she will wear black T-shirts, trousers, trainers and bracelets.
Personality: A selfless, if competitive person that isn't particularly depressed despite what you'd think...
Bio: Her parents are dead. A neighbour was in deep financial trouble, panicked till he was on the ragged edge then went to Yasmine's parents for help. After trying the best they could, solutions they came up with wasn't good enough for the neighbour. He attacked them with a kitchen knife and then made off with everything he could that wasn't nailed down.

She went to live with her Grandma. After a massive power-cut that shut off the heaters in her home, the 76 year-old caught pneumonia, passing away in her sleep.

Her Uncle accepted custody. On the way home from the tinned-food factory, his bike slammed into a car. His body became a rag-doll that went limp once his helmeted head smashed on the tarmac. He never made it out of the resulting coma.

At this point, she's in a foster home. None of her remaining family members want her. Either they can't cope or believe she is incredibly unlucky. Nothing has happened to the foster home.
Yet.
Type: Demonic
Connection to Element: As His assistant.

Element

Origin: When the first creature upon the first world perished, he came into being to shepherd the living to the other side.
Name: Death or The Grim Reaper
Element: Life or Death.
Age: For as long as there has been life.
Gender: Umm...it is assumed that he is male for simplicities sake.
Level: To begin with: Lvl -1
Bio: The Grim Reaper has been called many names in many mythologies surrounding him. However, He is nothing more than a servant of the universe in his duty to all living beings. He simply releases the soul, allowing it to make its next journey with his iconic weapon. Occasionally, he will have to go and take the soul that does not wish to accept the terms of life.

However, He has been ordered to help with current events. He is worried about the back log...
Type: Demonic
Manifestation point: Her skull.

Good job, only two things I want cleaned up before I accept the character.

1.) You do understand the only thing a Death Element can do is make a choice in a life or death situation, not cause the situation. In the event that they have to choose in such a situation, they will choose to have the person live a while longer. ((Personally XD I find the Grim Reaper to be more of a Life Element then a Death Element, Primarily because they would choose death for the situation. Life Elements still cannot cause the situation))

2.) Please note a better/specific position of the manifestation point DX there are a LOT of bones in the human body. I would guess maybe left/right wrist/forearm would be a better spot

Something I felt I should mention:

In intermediate level roleplays on this site, the general rule is that each person posts three paragraphs per post, about five sentences per paragraph. I'm not personally gonna force anyone to really hold to that exactly, since I know it can be difficult at times to maintain that and there isn't always enough going on to write that much (and we all get a little lazy about it) but I urge at least two decent paragraphs whenever possible instead of just one. That way it's still standing a level about the beginner's section.

I think I'll start the actual RP tomorrow sometime. That way I can be a bit lazy and we have a bit more time to get starting people. Also Syl, I know about the posting limit rule, bit with one paragraph for each character that would total up to two paragraphs and work wouldn't it? If not then I just up the requirement one paragraph for each XD

Can you give me a week please? I will help you now though with making sure the site knows about this.

OK, I changed it. The manifestation point is her skull because it's the most iconic bone for the Reaper.

Death will be a 'Life or Death' element instead. If you have ever seen Final Destination or maybe any White Noise film, I imagine it works like that. There will be a choice given to save or let perish the person in question. As her abilities grow, she will be able to give more information on what will happen. First the name. Then the time. Then how it happens. That then allows for the benefactor to be given more time. How much time is uncertain but hourglasses never lie.

Tyro, I must admit, you are awesome. The symbollism, the realistic use of the character, the evolution of your character, everything. Personally, I enjoyed the first final destination, but after that it just started getting to be a little too routine. But there is something coming for the Grim reaper and the life and death elements that will occur soon enough. But what you said about the life and death chances, that was almost spot-on of what we were going to add, though it will be a while since it is a special event that will make some very good changes in my opinion, as well as drrandom's I believe. But I won't reveal too much since the actual event and what it does, that would just be a spoiler.

Also, Thepsycoman, you sir are awesome and it certainly will be an honor to have someone such as you among us in the stories.
