Mal'Tara, City of Eternal Light THe City of Eternal Light, or that is what the citizens seem to call it nowadays. Most don't speak of why the lights are always kept on in this vast city, or the reason that people pay so much to keep the electricity on, no that is something that is only spoken in hushed whispers and only in the brightest of areas during the day. Because while this city may look like a jewel, it holds a dark secret, one that citizens are careful not to address. War is brewing in the deep in the underground, two vampire covens competing for complete control over the city and the inhabitants....or their food source. Both covens split a full century ago, the silent struggle between the two finally reaching a head and starting to cross the line of an all out war. Humans and vampires mingle in the streets at night, and most citizens know this, but continue to live their lives oblivious to the growing struggle. Who will win the war in the end? Join The Cause! First thing first, let me explain how things are going to work in this rp. Both Vampire Lords have already been chosen, so do not post a character sheet saying that you are one. This is set in a futuristic/steampunk style world where the modern meets the past. Expect to see electricity mixed with ancient weaponry and tools. All players are allowed two characters, not that you have to have two, but you are allowed two just the same. That could mean, a vampire in each coven, a human and a vampire, or even two humans if you wish. Please note that if you do decide to have a human character, you will most likely have a relatively short lifespan and be used as thralls or if you are lucky, informants. Please play them like the slaves that they are, this is not a war between vampires and humans, which means they will not be allowed weapons. Next is to pick which coven you would like to belong to after reading both bios, I do not want to see character sheet posts until both bios of the vampire lords are up. Mature themes will be present in this thread, bloodshed, violence, torture, and sexual themes, so please do not apply if you are not comfortable with these sort of things. Lastly, all vampires will have the typical strength, speed, and glamour as myth dictates. No turning into bats or floating or sprouting wings and such, keep them as the manipulative and predatory creatures that they are. Meaning no Twilight vampires. What you are allowed to have: All players are allowed three weapons, and this can include weapon sets. For example, if you duel wield katanas, that set will be considered "one" weapon. Keep in mind that the traditional methods of killing a vampire will work, a stake through the heart and being left out in sunlight for a long amount of time. Also a weakness to holy items will be permitted. But things like severing the head, getting a crossbow bolt or an arrow through the heart, or burning will work as well, as well as UV light guns and guns with special guns with wooden tipped bullets. Be wise about your weapon choices! It could cost your coven the battle! Please note that humans will not be allowed weapons. Please post a character sheet with the following guidelines: Name: Race: Age: *vampires are not allowed to be older than the two vampire lords* Coven: Picture/Description: Personality: History: Your history is going to include why you chose the coven that you are in. Weapons: Please remember that you are only allowed three Inventory: Any other odds and ends that you may have or items that are personal to your character. Remember to have fun and may the best coven win!
