OOC: OPEN SIGNUPS - BLEACH: The Three Worlds Since the start the shinigami have battled the hollows to protect the souls of humanity that exist on earth while the hollows sought to nourish themselves with these very same souls. It was a balance that worked with humanity none the wiser and it was all thanks to the soul king, the soul king had been there since time started and his power kept the barriers that separated the three worlds intact. Protected by the best the shinigami had to offer no one thought the presence of the soul king would disappear and that even as time passed be it decades, centuries or a millennium he would always be there. Unfortunately all things must end and that included the soul king and his power. - No one knows when the soul king was killed just that one of his royal guards found his physical manifestation with a nice neat hole through his torso where his heart was, a dagger was the weapon of choice for the assassin but their was no clue as to who had done it. At first the shinigami hid the death quite well but the effects of a single death would have terrible consequences for all three worlds. The barriers broke before anyone could stop it and soul society, hueco mundo and earth all crossed into the same realm. - Humanity was smashed by the many hollows that flooded in and attacked the new population of spiritually aware humans and making more hollows from the souls that hadn't killed but had seen their loved ones devoured, the shinigami response response was intense and swift as the whole of the thirteen court guard squads appeared on earth where the incursions had started, Karakura Japan. The shingamis started to press many souls into service in the form of militias armed with crude weapons that were able to kill hollows though they had little access to the powers of the shinigami. - We now find out cast in the ruins of what was Japan, each person has received a message, it has been sent to shinigami, arrancar and spiritualy powered humans asking them to come to the ruins of Tokyo to meet the unidentified messenger. - This is were our story starts.
