Whatever came before the three realms survives in no records on Earth or Heaven or Hell. Whoever it was that created the triosphere and their inhabitants is surely long gone, for all the good they've done. At the dawn of man, two other races dawned. From the Elysian windfield sprouted the Angels, creatures of order and structure. From the world of lava formed the Demons, beings of chaos and entropy. And on Earth were the humans, creatures weak in magic but strong in spiritual energy. As time went on, the two other planes learned to harvest this spiritual energy. Through everything from the Archidamian wars to the Pepsi-Coca Cola marketing war, Demons and Angels recruited humans to massive conflicts, each side leeching off of the energy created. Every human hope or prayer, every ounce of willpower and desire, every bit of stress and strain, despair and elation, went to either Heaven or Hell, giving them the energy to expand. As time wore on and the populations of both realms grew increasingly larger and larger, they found they needed more and more energy. More conflict, more struggle, more, more, more. Abortion. Immigration. Nuclear power. What Snooki should name her baby. Over every single issue, Angels and Demons struggled to polarize humanity, to leech energy from every nuance of human life. Eventually, they drove humanity to the brink- then over it. Nuclear bombs. Plagues. Mayhem. Destruction. The population of Earth the year the war began was around ten billion. By the time the dust settled eighteen months later, only scattered millions remained, and they were not human like their ancestors had been. No normal human could have survived the war- if the bombs and bullets did not get them, then Heaven and Hell, running short on soul power, drained their life force in a last ditch effort to keep the delicate structure of their worlds from collapsing. It did not work. They had killed too many, and those Remnants that left they could not touch. An entire race of psychopaths- mutated by radiation and biochem agents and incapable of normal emotion, of sympathy, and of being influenced by either Angels or Demons. Heaven and Hell collapsed anyway. Two massive evacuations to Earth were arranged; a great intersphere diaspora that recolonized the dying planet. Of course, that planet already has a native population, albeit a small one, and they are not much pleased by the new arrivals... especially once they put the pieces together and realize who it was that caused the war. More immediately speaking, Angels and Demons have realized that they are both exhausted, short on supplies, and very much in need of a ceasefire. Though neither side trusts the other, neither one has the resources to continue fighting, so they reluctantly agree to send five delegates apiece to a neutral area to draw up a treaty together.Unfortunately for the delegates, the Remnants of humanity have intercepted enough communications to know where these delegates are meeting, and have plans to crash the party and take the ten beings hostage- not a fate any of them are likely to survive, if they cannot work together to escape. Does this sound really cool? Do you want to be a part of it? It's quite easy, but I do have a few expectations and they are as follows: -Have pride in your work. I don't expect perfection but I do expect effort. Good grammar, proper spelling, that sort of thing. -Be polite to me and other board members. Call us by what we'd like to be called (I'm Sabine), don't pester anyone, and remember these magical words: "please", "thank you", and "I'm sorry". They'll get you a long way in life. Don't be afraid to ask questions, I'll also be polite and answer nicely. ^^ -Follow the mythos of the board, not your own. It's too confusing otherwise; every culture has their own interpretation. And please, keep religion out of this. No god, satan, lucifer, yahweh, jehovah, allah, flying spaghetti monster, etc. are to be included in this board. -Don't be stupid. I think this rule covers pretty much everything else you can do wrong. -First come first serve is not how I operate here. If the official members list doesn't show a role as being taken, you're more than welcome to request it. In the event of multiple requests, I will ask for a character form from the competing parties and make my decision based on that. Rejection for one role does not mean you aren't welcome to try for a different one. ^^ -Speaking of character forms, you'll be making your own. I've found that people tend to be much more creative when they don't have a mold to follow. That having been said, if your form sucks, I'll let you know and probably expect you to change it. Right way to ask to join this board: Hi, I'm Bobbert. Love the plot! Mind if I throw in my Angel character, Lucille? I think she'd be awesome as the Saint. I can have my form up by tomorrow. :) Wrong way to ask to join this board: i'm marcelline the vampire queen and i'm the sinner *eats ur face* wehn do i post my charrie forum?
