  1. Plot Synopsis

    [x] Early one morning everyone in the city of Autumn woke up from the same dream. At first, they thought nothing of it. It was strange but not any different than the occasional nightmare or stress filled dream. Yet, when they spoke to their loved ones, friends, co-workers, or even random people on the street, they learned that everyone had had the same experience. And that realization panicked them as quickly and violently as a blister popping.

    Supernatural and paranormal events were normal in the city of Autumn. They resided in the shadow of the ARC, an alternate power source drawn from the pure-energy world Aerth, and understood that odd magical goings-on happened from time to time. Yet, these events were always minor and localized. Calls poured into SPARRO (Supernatural Paranormal Reconnaissance and Reclamation Organization) begging for some explanation. Unfortunately, SPARRO was just as clueless. While they were tasked with tending to and eliminating supernatural and paranormal threats, this was beyond their spectrum to handle.

    So what was the dream?

    The dream began in an underground labyrinth. Or at least that was the assumption given the low ceilings, heavy mossy, and the smell of wet soil. A branching path was presented to each of the dreamers. Each corridor represented an answer to a question. The dreamers were free to choose the path they viewed as the answer to that question. They always had to choose. They could never deviate. Most of the dreamers awoke after having gone down a certain path. They were left with an odd sense of dread as if they had failed something monumental. A small group of dreams, though, made it to the end. They were given one of four objects: the sword, the chalice, the telescope, or the crystal orb. The dream ended after that, a feeling of urgency washing over them. Little did they know, they'd been chosen.

    [x] Earth has always felt the bleed through from Aerth, but things seem to escalate at an unnatural rate. The people of Earth, Autumn especially, haven’t seemed to notice. Only the twelve can witness the growing changes to their world. Of course, not everything happens in the shadows, but not even SPARRO has managed to correlate the strange goings-on with Aerth. Four harbingers from Aerth have arrived on Earth to slowly weave the threads of destruction. Yet, Earth has sought means to protect themselves. Each one of the objects from the dream is a key for defeating one harbinger. Yet, as many solutions have made themselves present… there are so many more questions.

    The world is coming to an end, and it’s up to these twelves witnesses to save it, destroy it, or remake it. What does the future hold for them? And will they survive what horrors are about to be thrown at them?

    ARC on the Skyline


    2 Humans, 2 Mages, 2 Werefolk, 2 Revenant, 2 Elves, 1 Goblin and 1 Troll

    Hextech Knight: Human: The first successful product of Project: HEX, you have, quite literally, become a scientific breakthrough. This is the first step towards humans standing on par with the supernatural. Since you’re the only success of this experiment, Project: HEX has been kept it secret from the public, which means you have been sheltered your entire life. You’re practically a demo for what is to come in the future. Still, you know you have a huge responsibility, and you wish to prove yourself, but there are sometimes you wish you could experience things normally, like everyone else. - TAKEN BY PRINCESS MISAOU

    SPARRO Officer: Human: You’re used to seeing everything that can be seen. Autumn is one of those places that has a hard time surprising you. You’re not new to the force, but neither are you a veteran. You’re experienced but not well respected. - Open


    Street Mage: Mage: Unlike a lot of your corporate kin, you’ve made a living in the jungle-of-a-city called Autumn. While you have your mage’s license, you don’t follow the mage’s rule. You do whatever you can to get by with whatever you want. - Open

    Changed Werefolk: Werefolk: You were the unfortunate product of a blood transfusion gone wrong. You never asked for this, but it was doled out to you on a silver (hiss) platter. Since then, you’ve been dealing with your changes and are downright sour about them. TAKEN BY REKT

    Born Werefolk: Werefolk: You grew up in a pack and have lived most of your life in it. Yet, unlike your kin, you showed exceptional skill in whatever you decided to pursue in life. Some may shun you for it, and others may applaud you for it. The only thing you know is that you believe you are different. - Open

    Corporate Revenant: Revenant: Immortality has been a gift. You’ve stayed alive long enough to witness the death and rebirth of several companies and managed to make the best of that knowledge. You’re well known among peers, and while a few might say something about your species, they can suck it. You can literally bathe in a swimming pool filled with hundreds. -Open

    Newborn Revenant: Revenant: You woke up in a dirty hotel room with a new lease on life. It is apparent that no one got government approval before changing you, and you sure as hell aren’t going to point out that fact for fear you'll get locked up. You’re new to this gig but that doesn’t mean you’re terrible at it.’ - Open

    Light Elf: Elf: You grew up with pale skin and all the chances in the world. Whether you took them or not, is up to you, but your empathic abilities were strong and you didn’t need implants to succeed. A lot of people envy you, but a lot of people hate you too. - TAKEN BY NEMO

    Dark Elf: Elf: You grew up with coal skin and all of Autumn’s disdain thrown at you. You can’t control abilities well, you got an implant at a young age. Yet, unlike your light counterpart, your lack of control equals power. How you’ve used that in your life is up to you. - Open

    Wild Card: Goblin: Considering the low population of this species, you can have whatever background you see fit with them… within reason. Have fun. Surprise us. - Open

    Wild Card: Troll: Considering the low population of this species, you can have whatever background you see fit with them… within reason. Have fun. Surprise us. - Open


    This is an advanced level roleplay so we're looking for posts that are at least two paragraphs (eight sentences) in length.

    We also expect our players to be active so that means a post every two weeks, at least.

    There are a limited amount of slots available in this role play. Like the title says, only 12 slots, with four being taken by the GM's of this roleplay. (that leaves 8 slots available to the general public)

    Regarding available slots, we don't take reservations here. Those who are accepted get the role, obviously. xD There is no first come first serve system in this roleplay.

    The GM's will do a weekly screening of apps until all slots are filled.


    This wasn't mentioned before, so I apologize. This roleplay is 18+ so, no red star no getting into this roleplay. (Sorry blue stars)

    GM's : @Nemopedia , @Tyrannosaurus Rekt , @Wicked , and @Princess Misaou

  6. Remember, no spots reservations! Only the GM's get to do that~~~

    And I realise that we haven't revealed much about the races either. While that doesn't matter too much, I just wanted to make a few spots more 'attractive' for everyone to play by revealing what we had in mind for them. Especially for the spots no one has spoken interest for yet.

    Trolls: They are a tall, muscular, humanoid race with horns. The horns can be aesthetically pleasing or downright intimidating. Yet, no matter their shape or size, they are always very obvious. They can have a range of skin colors and hair colors. They are the strongest out of the races and the tallest too. They also suffer from short attention spans and a very short temper. There is a branch of psychology solely dedicated to them. Trolls can be born, or they can produce humans. These humans have a high percentage of possibly transforming into a troll sometime in their life. No one knows why or how, but it does happen.
    Cursed: The human children born from trolls or with an ancestor that happened to be one. Much like a permanent STI, all cursed have to inform their potential partners that their offspring may or may not come out as trolls. It is illegal to withhold this information. The cursed may be a little stronger than most humans, but usually, they are not powered.

    Goblins: Short in stature and scrawny in build. They are attracted to gold and riches, going far as to satisfy their greed. They have a keen business sense, as they put their wealth above all. Their hands are big and their fingers long, giving them a disproportional look with their short limbs. They can reproduce with humans and though their children are slighter in stature than average men, they are less sensitive to succumb to their greed.
    Scrooges: Named after the character Ebenezer Scrooge of Christmas Carols written by Charles Dickens. These are humans who are contracted by the 'rich man's disease', an infection usually contracted by the extremely wealthy and especially greedy. (Money stinks, literally?) They usually maintain their human features depending at what age they contract it and the severity of the infection, but are mostly recognised by the bulge in their backs. These humans, so indulged in their wealth and filled with greed gain an especially violent demeanour when their properties are touched.

  7. Also. While the roles are there and paint a picture of your character. You can take them in any direction. This is to spread out races/wealth/class/experience. And if you have an idea that doesn't exactly fit perfectly with the role, let us know. We'll let you know if it's okay. But like don't go from being, for instance, a street mage and then wanting them to be like an all powerful mage that everyone fears and respects but lives on the street... because. I will smack you. Don't Mary Sue. A good way to think about is: your idea has to be better than ours, but also fit into the mold of the RP.

    Rook, Remy, Evie... and now Iris. Is this turning into ATOF pt 2?

  9. There is a blank one for you to fill out. It's already coded and everything. When we get the thread up and running, it'll be available to fill out. I also need to get finished with mine so I can use it for an example.

    There is a lot of information that is not present in this Interest Check in hopes of not boring you half to death. But it will be necessary to complete the CS. ^^

    The triplets are very convincing.
    So convincing.

  11. This RP straddles the line between being modern fantasy and science fantasy. We're going to leave a lot of the aesthetic science to you players, BUT there are two facets of this society that are high-science-concepts you need to know about (and one of them is SUPER fun).

    First: Hextech Knights
    Misa's character is one, but you will run into them throughout the RP. Whether they are friend or foe, has yet to be known.

    Hextech Knights (open)

    Project: HEX ( Human Enchantment Xenogenesis ) : Ever since the rise of the supernaturals, Humans have been fascinated with their power. But not just fascinated, they also desired it. Not wanting to be left behind, with access to things such as magic, they began to advance the face of technology and science. What if there was a way, for humans to share the power some of these supernatural’s have, while maintaining their humanity? Should these supernaturals ever rise against them, these people would be able to stop them. These were the questions the scientist asked themselves.With that the scientists decided to try and recreate the supernatural mage.

    Well, beginning the research they found out that, it wasn’t going to be so simple. The human brain doesn’t function at 100% because the human body, despite their potential, can’t withstand it. But if there was a way to unlock those portions of the brain it was believed supernatural abilities would be unlocked as well. They needed a catalyst of some sorts. Not only that, but the willpower to withstand such a dangerous procedure.Using ideas from catalyst mages, who cast using a mage stone, but modifying it, the scientific team created a microchip that once implanted in the brain would unlock 100% of the individual’s brain with hopes that this would trigger supernatural ability development. So since the human body can’t withstand unlocking their full potential, something needed to be made that could. With that in mind a scientific team and a team of technology specialists developed a suit that would allow the user to cast with their newlyfound powers, since the body wouldn’t be able to do it on it’s own. What’s interesting about the suit is that it has a mind of it’s own. Of course, for the suit to be fully effective the subject would need to form a bond with the AI. The AI’s job would be to monitor the subject’s vitals at all times and to give the body what it needs to be able to withstand casting. For that, a relationship needed to be made. What made it difficult was that the AI had to choose to work with the subject, not just the subject controlling it.

    Once those two elements were completed they started testing. Though it just resulted in failure after failure. Not wanting to cause national uproar the scientist figured it was ethically and morally impossible to get a volunteer for this project. So they would need to create a subject on their own, that way they wouldn’t feel as guilty doing the experiments. Though creating a child without using natural means was easier said than done.

    Second: idPersona
    Everyone has one. Everyone. They're pretty much cell phones embedded into your body, but I'm going to break them down. Be looking for a cute avatar for your character's idPersona. Everyone is required to have one.

    idPersona (open)
    The idPersona was developed only ten years ago, and yet people have no idea how to function without them. They are chips embedded into the right wrist of every person after they reach the age of twelve. They can perform calls. They can link you to the internet. They hold all your personal information, and they are the primary payment method. idPersonas pull up everything in holographic windows that only the person can see unless they turn sharing mode on. Usually, when someone is using their idPersona their eyes glow, so people know not to disturb them (if them swiping at something invisible didn't seem to be a big sign.) All idPErsonas allow their user to customize them heavily, and all of them have an avatar that keeps track of everythihng they do. The avatars are a one-time choice, due to the fact that they are your identity on idSpace. Though they've been received with high praise, there is some negative press about them. idPErsonas record everything you do. They say this is to help facilitate with legal cases and help keep crime down, but people fear being hacked and their personal information being available to whoever. There has never been a known case of idPersonas being hacked, and according to their ever-changing security algorithm--it will never happen.

  13. We promise it isn't personal. We just want adults because this is an adult RP (not libertine, though, don't think that.)

    So. With a few more interested people, we'll start it up.
    Please. Let's start this!
  14. I've got a character in mind, and the posting time will work with my schedule. But I am a bit... hesitant... when it comes to my posting level, so whenever the OOC is put up I'll work on a CS and I guess that will be my gauge.

  15. Wait, question, what if the character is left handed o.o That's like reaching for your credit card or cash with your non-dominate hand and thst's kind of weird to imagine o.e

    I know, I ask such important questions v.v;
  16. Well. Considering that left-handedness is the sign of the devil... they're just killed at birth.
    I'm kidding.

    It actually has nothing to do with your arm. While the chip goes into your wrist, it's operated with your mind (I need to write that in there somewhere.) So, you don't actually have to move/use your right arm to activate it (the only time you use your hands is if you like fiddling with the menus that pop up). And when you go to pay for something, or trade information, or answer a call, or anything like that... you don't have to wave your arm around to do it.

    It's like this really cheesy commercial from about 10 years ago:

    Ugh. 2006.
    What is up with that cooooaaattt?
