Once you see the truth behind one’s lies, your soul suffers. But once you see the truth behind the reality, you lead all others to suffer. Think of a world. That should not be so hard, because you obviously are living into one. And now, think of that world full of all the creatures that you know from the tales. Pixies are living in the forests, but they can only be seen if you believe them. Vampires are hunting at nights, and may be one is your boyfriend. Humankind is protected by a group called Shadow Warriors. Life of an ordinary shadow warrior starts at a very young age. Unlike the normal human population, they can see the truth behind one’s reality. From fangs of a vampire, which a normal person can never see, to the dark balloon-like demonic beings that are flying everywhere. Those balloons are funny if you could see them. They walk around and whisper to your ears, and that’s may be the reason why you stole five dollars from your father’s jacket the other day. Some demons, on the other hand; can possess, murder, curse, poison and even can make you fall in love with them. They are extra-planar beings, who came to invade your world. Some shadow warriors can cast magic; they are well educated to fight against the demons. Some others are instead better in using sacred weapons, and that is what they specialize. They protect humankind not only against demons, but also against the vampires and warlocks who are evil. Warlocks are half human and half demon; but they usually hate demons and are good. They look like humans mostly, and are capable of casting magic too. Their magic is usually even stronger than the shadow warriors, so whenever one decides on joining the evil forces, that causes a lot of problems. Shadow warriors have strict rules. They can only marry with other shadow warriors as that is the only way to give birth to other shadow warriors. Homosexuality is something that is strictly forbidden. (But I am willing to see at least one in the role play who tries changing that.) Starting with their childhood, they are educated in fighting and their educating methods might not always be considered humanistic. The story will start with our arrival at New York, or you are already living there. Recently, New York seems to be the place where many demons are attacking. Rules: 1) Official role playing rules in this site need to be followed. 2) At least two or three literate paragraphs are needed for every post, unless really there is not much to say. 3) Respecting other role players is important. 4) Story is not something that I am building up and players are following. Story will be something that players will build all together. 5) God-modding is unacceptable. Do not control any other player’s character or NPC. 6) Every NPC that are being created should have a reason. Logic is needed. Being saved by a dragon all of a sudden in the middle of a combat, for example, is not something that you can face every day. All characters in the game are special, but we will power up throughout the role play. (I really apologize if the rules look too strict, but really, those are essential. Believe me.) Character Sheet General Information: Name: Age: (16 – 20) Gender: Race: (Vampire/ Warlock/ Shadow Warrior) Appearance: (I want this part to be quite detailed. The more we can visualize, the more efficient a story will be.) Background: (Well, do not include so many details here. Our characters had never met before, so nobody knows too much about each other.) Weapon: (It’s appearance and special powers, if you have any.) Other: (Anything else you want to add?) Systematic Information: Level: 1 (Officially 1 for everyone at the beginning) Skill points: 25 (You will gain another 8 each time you level up.) Acrobatics: (I’m a monkey, am not I?) Bluff: (Good lies save lives.) Dexterity: Dodge: Magical Powers: (How good you are at the magic?) (This skill is banned for vampires) Mind-affecting: Elemental: Dark Magic: (Curses, seals, summoning etc. Can only be used by Warlocks) Divination: (Healing, removing curses/seals etc. Can only be used by Shadow Warriors) (Please note that you cannot give skill points to more than two spell types) Physical Strength: (Do you like muscles? Do you want to punch people? Or do you like swords? That is for you.) Profession: Stamina: (How well you protect yourself from one’s physical attacks.) Will: (How well you protect yourself from one’s mind-affecting magical powers or compulsions?) (For vampires only): Compulsion: (You can force someone to obey, if their will is not strong enough.) Super speed: (Every vampire has super speed. Some are even faster.) (Please note that vampires have bloodthirsty, but they prefer animals because of the agreements with shadow warriors. They immediately die if they expose to sun light. They can never use sacred weapons. However, they are immune to diseases, they heal quickly, and they can never get old. To become a vampire one needs to die after drinking vampire blood.) (Warlocks do not get old after the age of 19 and they also can not use any sacred weapon.) *** I will post my own character sheet later.
