PostSubject: Of Gods and Men   Wed Dec 18, 2013 12:44 am

Date: December 17, 2015

The time has come, the time of choice. The gods are restless, the ancient sparks of war and life and death and hope and fear have rained onto its tinder: our world. It is our obligation to stoke the flames. A select few Disciples make the decision to follow a god, the choice is theirs and Fate's. Disciples take on a set of guidelines, abilities, skills, and limitations. Each set is unique to each of the nine gods. Most of the gods have allies, opposites, and nemeses. Allies compliment each other, their powers mesh, mutually strengthening them. Allied disciples are naturally drawn together. The agendas of opposites contradict each other, but do not necessarily directly interfere with each other's agenda. Opposite disciples are generally neutral and usually are not antagonistic, but have a passive repulsion. Nemeses are combatant enemies. It is the will of the gods that one nemesis' disciples attempt to overpower the other.

Relationships between disciples can cause their powers to strengthen or limitations to weaken. Allied disciples that form a bond may experience a sharing of powers. Opposites that do so can sometimes weaken their taboos.

Name: James Anderson

Age: 22

Disciple of: XM

Personality: Pretty laid-back, doesn't care about much. His solution to all problems is to ignore them. After gaining disciple powers he's grown rather arrogant, and his solution to money problems is robbing a bank or something, since after all, thanks to the gateway power he won't be caught.

Profession (I/A): Before becoming a disciple: Student and programmer. After becoming a disciple: Wandering the world, sometimes even other worlds. Cause who needs a job when you can summon a mass of tentacles?

Music (optional): May find at some point in the life of the universe.

((OOC: It's close enough to 12 hours.))

Alex found himself in a cave, with rocks layed out in a circular pattern, with one set apart from the other, the outlier he immediately recognised as Quet. He walked around the stones, until he found the one that represented Lokt, kneeling before the stone he placed his hands on it and closed his eyes.

Waking up, he remembered what happened in his dream, A small smirk appeared on his face as he lied down and went back to sleep.

OOC: Suggestion - Add a new "ability" to all the disciples - immortality, allowing them to regenerate (for want of a better word) when they die, so we can (id we need/want to ) skip between time frames. Also prevents characters getting killed outright by stuff, so we don't lose players.

BIC:
Markus' head snapped up. Ok. A cave. This must be dream material...and rocks. Lots of them. With markings.

He got up and walked over to the nearest rock..a mark. His mind offered that it was Ur, The Wheel. Hm...how did he know that? Scanning the other rocks, he found one that he recognized as Amlia. Walking over, he kneeled and placed his hand on the stone.

A flash, then darkness. He woke up.

That was...oddly vivid. Oh, well. It must be too good to be true, anyway. Markus rolled out of bed.

Kyle looked up. He saw he was inside a cavern of some sort. Two red flashes appeared before him. Blink mask is still working, apparently.

He felt no more aware afterward, however. Already lucid, huh? Well then.

He stopped to observe the cave some more. A neat array of stalactites. A small puddle tucked away in a corner. A circle of rocks. Symbols etched on them.

He walked over to a rock. On it was etched a symbol - Ersu, his mind offered. Standing before it, he felt a sudden, overpowering sense of hope. A sense of rightness. He touched his hand to the stone, closed his eyes, and woke up.

Ivan was in a cave.
He did know it was a dream, which confused him as he had never had a lucid dream before.

Looking around, he noticed an array of stones.
Observing them more closely, he noticed they had symbols inscribed into them.
He walked up to one of them, sensing it was Lokt. That stone made him uneasy though, so he moved on.
The next stone he stopped at was XM. That one was more intersting, but it felt dangerous to even get close to the stone.
He walked on to Ur and simply felt right around it.
He touched the stone-and woke up.

A strange dream indeed, but he had no time. It was already 6:45 and he had to get to a meeting discussing the recent sightings of classified developments in the public. Damn UFO hunters...

OOC: Updated application because I realized the RP starts with the selection of a god. I feel stupid now..

BIC:
James woke up in a cave. Or did he really wake up? It felt like those times when you are awake but feel like you're dreaming, but surely this was too strange to be real.
He got up, and found himself in the middle of a ring of stones. They all had odd inscriptions on them, and he could feel a sort of.. power, radiating out from each of the stones.
James started walking between the stones, touching them, absorbing their information. If it was a dream, how could he imagine all this? And if it was real... how could he understand it?
Disciples. Powers. Nemeses, opposites, taboos it all was so weird, yet still, in a strange way, it made complete sense.

Then, he started getting something about.. gods?
These stones, each and every one of the nine stones contained information about a god, its powers, what it required of a disciple.
James started walking again. The Ur one seemed interesting. These seemed like powers for a leader, and the taboo wasn't all that bad. However, being a leader and having responsibilities wasn't really James' thing.
The other gods either had stupid agendas, stupid taboos, stupid powers, sometimes all three. But then he got to one that was.. different from the others.
This stone radiated not only power, but a feeling of horror, chaos and darkness.
This one was really interesting. The powers were pretty cool, there were no taboos, and there wasn't really any clear agenda.
And besides, James had since long ago been a fan of darkness and horror and stuff.

Suddenly he woke up. For real this time.
James was lying in his bed. A wonderful December morning outside the window. Probably. When it's 8 AM and it's pitch black outside, you don't see much.
James got out of bed. He turned on the TV and just heard that the university was closed due to a major snow storm that had raged during the night.
"School canceled due to snow." James said to himself. "Never thought that would happen, not here at least."
He put on shoes and a jacket and walked out of the apartment. He walked down to ground level, and was majorly surprised.
The front door was covered by a meter of snow.
"A hell of a snow storm indeed..."

Character list
Spoiler:
 



I'll be doing some actual GMing.

**

Disciples, newly chosen or otherwise (characters do not have to start out in the selection cave), suddenly find themselves in a large circular arena-about 250 meters in diameter. The stone arches that form the walls of the arena, as well as the gravely sand that makes up its floor, are all perfectly white. The gravel around the edge glows softly, illuminating the walls and the disciples, but the center is dark. The sky is pitch, no stars nor bodies save three orbs: a crescent moon, a dim green sun, and a single planet that orbits the sun about every minute. If one was to look closely, they would see that the moon was filling with light slowly as the planet orbited the sun.

There are 18 disciples in the arena, all spaced out along its edge, two for each god. The Disciples have only what they were wearing at the time of the transition. Beside each disciple is a black wooden chest. The contents of the chest is different for each god.

Ur's chests: A notebook, a pencil, and small knife. On the top of the chest, there is a simple headset with a boom microphone.

Amlia's chests: A thin breastplate and winged helmet, an elastic bandage, and a small seed. On top of the chest is a small earpiece.

Ersu's chests: A thin, wispy hood, tunic, and pants, a light bow with two arrows, and a long dagger. On top of the chest is a small earpiece.

Optus's chests: A bucket of water, five gold pieces, a short jewel-encrusted axe, and a lighter. On top of the chest is a small earpiece.

Lux's chests: A pair of binoculars, a piece of paper, a pen, a few mechanical bits and pieces, and a box with a complex lock mechanism. On top of the chest is a small earpiece (and a chip for Driel's eyepiece).

Long Man's chests: A few furs, a stick with a few leaves on it, a large stone, and a hamster. On top of the chest is a small earpiece.

Lokt's chests: A long, curved blade, a tooth-spiked white crown, and a serrated staff with a spearhead on one end. On top of the chest is a small earpiece.

Quet's chests: A long sword with an obsidian edge and a yellow note with the word "kill." There are broken pieces of an earpiece on the top of the chest.

Xm's chests: A distant mesh of whispers and darkness with a substance that seems like it fills more than the chest. A thick layer of dust covers the chest and surrounding area. This layer of dust covers an earpiece that is lying on the top of the chest.
