Setting: The realms of Elysium and Gehenna - Heaven and Hell - have collapsed in on one another, Bringing destruction to both. In a desperate bid for survival, the denizens of both sought each other out, throwing aside their infinite conflict with one another, and joined forces to create a city outside of their dimensions. One that could survive outside of their respective realities. Creating and conscripting mankind together in their efforts to make a future. The city rose from a pit of nothingness, angelic and demonic magics birthing a small world to rest it upon. Their goal complete, and home waiting, they lived in it together. But of course, this did not mean they would live equally. Years upon years go by, a generation passes, and things become clear. What all seemed like cooperation and unity managed to shift its way into a society that deemed angels as the elite, daemons as... less so, and humans placed firmly in the middle, some treated like pets by their white winged masters, and used as a tool to keep the red-skinned monsters down working under the city and slaving away at the engines. Proper, polite society makes this struggle different from the centuries long wars that they were so familiar with before. Crushing boots of steel were easier to lift, than the weight of economic strife placed firmly on the free people of the city. It was all a very clever game now, with laws and new ways of doing things. Something, wholly foreign to the previously barbaric daemon tribes. Peace and order, offers its own type of chains.
General plot: The initial story will follow a group of individuals looking to equalize the power struggle in the city and get out from under the oppressive rule of the angels. I plan on going through this over the course of multiple smaller rp plots and stories.
Looking for experienced RPers/Writers capable of posts at least a paragraph (six or eight sentances) long.
I encourage questions, so if you're curious and want to ask anything about the setting or plot or Anything, you can do so by replying to this thread.
Could you be more specific on the kinds of characters you're looking for? I confess I'm still trying to decide exactly what I want to play, myself.
Sorry for taking so long to get back to this. Im looking for like any kind of character really, so long as they want to support the effort to equalize the city. Id prefer to avoid having like, ultra badass characters that can kill fifty men just by blinking, though. keep them more grounded in the beginning. All that said, your character/s can be Angel, Demon, or Human and you can have more than one, just not in the same thread.
I think I've settled on my character being a police detective downtown. I'm thinking of calling him Richard Hill. His boss and precinct chief is a [email protected]$$ demon, a woman who definitely doesn't tolerate nonsense on the job, but also values getting the job done. He put some time in working uptown in the past, but has little respect for them, especially when during that time his chief was an angel who treated her officers more like pets, children and dolls to have on display than as functional professionals. Not that that was a handicap to their job uptown, as the angelic section of the city is far more peaceful and well off.
There's a bar he likes to go to after work, frequented by blue collar laborers a lot. He actually likes the "burnt matchstick" smell of ignited sulphur and saltpeter on the furnace workers, rather than turning his nose up at it, and he claims their booze is better.
I picture him getting in an argument with some well-dressed, collar-pressed, decorated uptown detective, where after one of his disparaging comments about them trying to take custody over an investigation, she observes that he doesn't believe uptown detectives could handle the case.
"Toots," he replies without hesitation or respect, "I wouldn't trust an uptown detective to figure out who ate my sandwich out of the break room, but that's not the half of it. You people hate proper work. Hell, you barely know what it is. And now I'm supposed to believe you're just swooping in on feathered wings to take over one of the messiest cases I've seen in fifteen years just out of the good graces of your heart and a sense of civil duty? No real detective worth the title could be made to swallow that."
