<WARNING~ This RP will contain Violence, Profanity, and things you may not be comfortable with. If this was a movie, it would be rated R. Do not join, if you are not comfortable with that. You have been warned.> A common theme for protagonists is some kind of connection to death. Maybe a family member died, driving them to be better. Or maybe they do what they do because they fear death. Or one of my favorites, they are trying to outsmart death. And there are some people who kill, and that's their connection to death. Now as you've probably guessed from the thread's title, this is an RP about death. But it is also about so much more. Redemption. The story sets off in a city, called Revival City, but is nicknamed, "God's Shadow." This is for a reason. Revival City is one of the most crime ridden cities in the world. The North is full of thieves, the South's profit is based around illegal immigration and prostitution, while the West is home to one of the best places to get a hold of drugs, with multiple harbors controlled by local gangs. The Center is full of the rich, the government, the middle class. The people who smile and ignore the chaos. The outskirts of the center is the Slums, which are called, Suburbia, as an ironic name. You will be a young adult, who has to deal with all of this. but you aren't alone. You have been gifted with amazing powers from birth, but you are chained to an ancient prophecy, where you will killed when you reach the ripe age of 30. Now you have three options at this point; ignore it and pretend it doesn't exist, or use your powers for a purpose and hopefully break this curse. You will team up with a man, who seems to know more about this whole thing than anyone else you've ever met, and a group of people who share your predicament. There is also, a problem. You will have to fight monsters from Hell, who can't bee seen my the average person. You have to either have the gift, or have some other reason for seeing them. Yay, that's always fun. These things want the prophecy to happen early, so doomsday will come. If all of the heroes are dead, doomsday will begin. However, if you somehow find a way to close the gates of hell, which thee monsters are escaping from, then the curse will be lifted. More will be explained as you venture deeper into the Roleplay, if you chose to join. Here are the rules. Follow them to the T. Spoiler: Rules #1~ All RP Rules and General Rules apply. This includes and is not limited to, no one liners, no double posting, no god modding, no mini modding, no Mary Sues (This includes Gary Stu's), no creating continuity issues, and no creating posts with god awful grammar. #2~ Age is vital within this RP. First off because of the dying at age 30, part, and the constant violence. So I'm setting the age limit to 18-29. I don't think a 11 year old would really be any help in a situation like the ones we will be facing. This isn't Pokemon. #3~Violence will be allowed. Posts can be bloody, and will occur. However nothing overly bloody, describing things for unnecessary reasons. Like describing blood smears on the wall. Being descriptive is fine, but try not be as descriptive for bloody aspects along with gruesome ones. #4~Love is a beautiful. I completely condone love, ships, and other such aspects of most human's maturity. However, despite the fact this RP is being considered rated R, nothing past kissing can be actually acted out. Other things, can be done off screen, but like the blood thing, don't describe it. Some bad things that fall in this category will be mentioned, but we won't dive deep into those things. If you don't really understand where I'm going with this rule, then there is a good chance you might be too young for this RP. #5~Now these powers you receive aren't like super powers. All people receive faster reflexes, a higher pain tolerance, and a slightly increased strength. However you won't be Superman and can be killed. That's what the monsters want. Now on the personalized aspects of your powers, make it something small, like immunity to fire, or night vision. Something small. I don't want a crazy power list, like Telekinesis, flight, Laser Vision, etc. Also as a not, mention shotgun somewhere in you're form. This is to insure you read the rules, because and you can see, I'm burying the main phrase under a bunch of stuff. Now for the character sheets. As a note, you are limited to only one character. I will be controlling two, but one will be the man, who is the guy who knows stuff. His profile will have missing pieces to preserve some mysteries. Name: Age: Gender: Sexuality: Powers: Physical Appearance: General Clothing: Personality: Backstory: (Optional) Weapon Choice: Fighting Style: (Optional) Here is my main OC. Name: Jake Warren Age: 22 Gender: Male Sexuality: Heterosexual Powers: Immunity to fire Physical Appearance: Jake has a someone average face. He has peachy skin, along with dirty blonde hair, and green eyes. There is faint signs of lack of sleep upon his face, but him and other ignore it. He stands at about 6'1" and weighs about 183lbs. He isn't really fat or thin, and is pretty average in his muscle tone. His voice is not very gruff, and sounds like a somewhat deeper child's voice. His hair is cut into a fade, and he is very average looking, overall. General Clothing: Jake tries to wear clothes that don't attract attention. He tries to keep a low profile, so this means, no bright colors, nothing too rich, or too poor looking. His normally wears button up shirts, with the sleeves rolled up, sticking to dark colors, like black, grey, and navy blue. In colder weather he wears a black parka, and a dark blue scarf, along with a black stocking cap. He wears jeans that are in decent shape, and has a black backpack on his person at all times. His sneakers are black converse high tops. He always keep a change of clothes and a pair of fake glasses in case he needs to change his look for a bit. Personality: He is someone who is used to running away. He is a solid fighter, but has his own demons. Nightmares that keep him wide awake at night, ruining his sleep. He seems almost calm and collected when talking to people, but in reality he is barely keeping his shit together. He tries to keep few relationships, often cutting them early, afraid that he will ruin something or that he isn't really ready for any kind of relationships. He is a mental train wreck. However in public he can have a silver tongue, and can be quite cunning. However he does deceive people, and can't stand those who do that. His moral code is a bit skewed, but still there. He makes his money by pick-pocketing people, but only pick-pockets those he feels don't deserve what they have. In a sense he is playing god, but he doesn't care. Backstory: He was born and raised in Revival City, mainly near the Western Central area, where there is a good amount of middle class people, but still a good share of gangs. His mother died during child birth and his dad was a cobbler. Their store was on the territory of a gang, and his father had to pay money to the gang to keep his business. By the time Jake was 18, his father died. Within a few day, members of the gang came back to get their payment. Jake, in a rage of fury refused. There was a fight, and a fire broke out. Jake was the only one to survive. He met up with his uncle who, Jake considered to be a nutjob. He always talked about demons, and gave Jake a knife, the very one he was now, to protect himself with. Soon demons came for him. He didn't know why, but they did. His uncle was killed first, and Jake killed a few, before escaping. Now he is on the run, and does his best to avoid gangs, and demon, hoping for the best. He knows nothing about the prophecy. Weapon Choice: He prefers bladed weapons whenever possible. He keeps a knife on his person, with a silver blade and runes on it, to kill any demons. However later, he will get a one handed broadsword. But he is not unreasonable and understands that sometimes guns and ranged weapons are needed. So he prefers automatic pistols, for the mobility, and speed. Fighting Style: Prefers up close and personal. He'd rather fight someone who he can see, and can see, then tricking them or being tricked. He prefers an offensive strategy, and attacking quickly. Hence why he uses an automatic pistol instead of something slower like a shotgun. And the man's sheet. Name: Walter Simmons Gender: Male Physical Appearance: Walter is a man who looks to be in his mid-forties. His hair is black, or once was and now beginning to grey. He is short, and stands at about 5'3". However he is somewhat buff, despite how he looks. His hands are calloused from years of manual labor. His skin is olive and he shows hints of having Italian ancestry. He keeps his hair slicked back. His jaw is squared, and his eyes are a deep brown. General Clothing: Walter wears a black suit, with a red tie. He keeps himself look quite professional. Personality: Walter is a man, who does what it takes to survive, He can seem strict and angry at times, but that is because he has this drive to survive.
