Murder Tale: Origin's Trial Origin. The Great Spirit who holds dominion over the cycle of life and death of all the hyperverse. He interferes where he needs to, ensuring that cycle doesn't become imbalanced, though this creates a great strain on Origin. Despite his immense power, the burden of overseeing all life in all of reality puts him in a state of constant pain. It eventually occurred to Origin's fellow Great Spirits to ask: were these lesser beings really worth their friend's pain? There came the day when sentient life finally became aware that worlds existed beyond the universes they knew. The Great Spirits, Maxwell, Origin, and Chronos were unhappy with this expanded knowledge and formed a test called Origin's Trial that was meant to measure whether or not all beings within the hyperverse were worthy of such knowledge and what they had. If they were to fail the trial, Origin would end his influence over the cycle, allowing it to fall out of balance and bring destruction to all. If they were to pass, Origin would grant those that passed one wish. For being the ones to discover this knowledge, it was the Kresnik bloodline that was given the power of the Chromatus, a power meant to aid them in passing the Trial. The three Great Spirits said that the Trial would occur during a time of great turmoil and left the Kresniks to their own devices for the time being. Growing impatient and consumed by the power of their new ability, many members of the Kresnik family perished as a result of a war between the family. The few survivors spread themselves thin across the hyperverse and went into hiding, hoping they lived long enough for when Origin's Trial was to come to pass. Now, following in the wake of the Arch Demon's rise and fall, power-hungry villains causing instability across the multiverse, and the most powerful of organizations facing an internal civil war, the Great Spirits were calling on the remaining Kresniks. The time for the trial had come. Ludger Kresnik, one of the final two members of the Kresnik bloodline, has told the Coalition of the trial that could decide the fate of all the hyperverse. With resources so thin and so few Kresniks left, the Coalition can do little more than send in a specialized team to combat the trial and prove their worth to Origin. Roles? This Tale will have no roles, but characters will have to face challenges that could result in their deaths. A large component of the trial is sacrifice, and characters will be forced to vote on someone in their group to be killed off to continue to each new stage of the trial. Not all will make it to the end to obtain the ultimate prize of the trial.
