PREMISE Angels and demons are energy-based entities hailing from two different planes of existence; for easy reference, we'll call them Heaven and Hell, but they're not the Heaven and Hell you know of from religion. One does not contain all the good souls of deceased humans and the other is not the place bad guys go to suffer after they die. All they are, are the original homes of the beings known as angels, and the beings known as demons. Angels are not all good, and demons are not all bad. They're as varied as humans, with their own personalities and motivations. They do, however, hate each other, but not for any philosophical purpose; it's completely practical. Angels kill demons just by being around them, and vice versa. They are each other's kryptonite, the one thing that renders them vulnerable. So because of this, they've been each other's mortal enemies for like, millenia. The only time they are immune to each other's presence, is when they're possessing a human host. Done properly, possession is a mutually beneficial symbiosis. The angel or demon becomes immune to the threat of their opposing force's deadly energy, and gets to experience human sensations, something they never get to do in their natural state; in return, the human, while undergoing physical transformations, gains powers from the union. The problem is, angels and demons don't want to share the human world. They hate each other, and have been fighting for control of the human populations for ages. Angels have gained ground historically through the spread of Christianity, Catholicism, and similar outbranching belief systems, which are essentially propaganda designed to bias the humans into believing that angels are good and demons are evil. However, there have been regions of the world which do not know demons as the sinister beings of evil from the bible, but as spirits of power that can benefit them. In modern times, a lot more is understood about these beings; the scientific community and the populace at large are now aware that they're not truly heavenly or demonic, but simply energy-based lifeforms with symbiotic abilities. many of the younger generation are even volunteering readily for demonic possession, finding the physical transformations and accompanying powers 'cool'. it's a situation that many angels and demons find ideal as they slowly learn to coexist. But there still remain extremists on both sides, who foster continued religious fanaticism in order to try and maintain control, and wrest the planet away from their ancient enemies. PLOT So basically, the plot would be that an angelic bad guy is attempting to usurp control somehow and lead like a world-wide jihad on demons and demon-possessed people. I haven't figured out exactly how this works yet, it'd probably be a lot easier if I went with a fantasy-past setting instead of modern seeing as that's my forte, but I'm trying to branch out here so give me a little credit. I'd like to put heavy emphasis on the fact that the bad guy could be either an angel or a demon, as both species are as flexible and diverse as humans; however, I felt that an RP with an angelic antagonist would be better for gameplay, and wanted players to be primarily either demon-hosts or regular humans. (I'd explain further but this thing's so huge already ahhhh!). There would be supposed to be fight scenes, cuz, I mean, seriously--people are supposed to gain powers from being angel-hosts or demon-hosts, what's the point if you don't get to fight each other and blow shit up with said powers? But beyond that I haven't figured much out. Is anyone interested in this RP? Would there be anyone willing to co-GM it with me and help me iron out the details I'm having trouble with?
