A City Betwixt The Grey Expanse—to the gods, it was home, to humans, however, it was a realm beyond their own, an afterlife of sorts. For some, it served as a place of penance, an opportunity to undo the sins of their past lives and achieve salvation. For others, it was simply an opportunity to pursue power they had never known in life. For yet others, it was a hunting ground, a new den in which their twisted souls, undeterred by the sting of death, could flourish and feed. These darkling creatures would become the scourge of both gods and men: demons. Even these monsters, though, began as mere humans, and all humans have one thing in common: hunger. This hunger, this constant desire, burns within the depths of every human soul. Some seek to embrace it, others try to bend it to their will, and yet others seek to escape from it entirely. For many, what they truly sought was guidance, a light to direct them in this new and strange world. Many sought this guidance from the gods, and, in time, their pleas were answered. In the golden city of Aurinc, the ArchSeraph Argyle proposed a choice to the wayward souls of humanity: hunt the demons and seek salvation, or become one yourself. Hey there, and welcome to the interest check for A City Betwixt. As you can probably gather from the above, this thread will take place in a sort of 'purgatory' where the souls of the dead go after death. In this strange new realm, they will be tasked with the hunting of demons: human souls that have grown dark and twisted to the point of consuming the spirits of others. Humans hunt these demons for a variety of reasons, but the greatest of these is the idea that by cleansing the world of demons, a person can purify their own soul. It is said that when a person's soul has been completely cleansed, they may leave the Grey Expanse and return to their own world to be reborn anew. Obviously there's a lot more to all of this, and I'm still working on some of it, but if this happens to pique your interest, or if you just happen to have any questions, be sure to let me know.
