So, basic idea: One of the "deities" of this world is Matthias, the Immortal of resurrection, reincarnation, and redemption. In order to battle the darkness of the world, he founded a secret society known as the Phoenixes. Simply put, a Phoenix is a person who, through any act of greatness, has proven themselves a source of light for all humanity. Warriors to poets, merchants to explorers, anyone can become a Phoenix. Once accepted into the society they will be burned alive, only to rise again, imbued with some of Matthias' powers. They can continue to self-immolate for an indefinite time, healing themselves and having their youth restored each time. Though many Phoenixes live out normal lives save for annual meetings, there are some who live openly as Phoenixes and maintain the public image. They are well known for acts of charity and humanitarianism, as well as for immunity to all injury by heat and fire. I figure this roleplay will focus on the Phoenixes overcoming some great threat, probably the ancient darkness they werer created to fight, but I'm not exactly sure how to develop that vague idea into a real plot. I would love love love some input and ideas to flesh this thing into a real roleplay!
