UNDERCITY Sign Up Setting When humans who have a balanced scale or never got a true chance at life die, they go to live in the Undercity for a year. The Undercity is the more popular name for the Underworld. It is ruled by Hades, his wife Persephone and it is managed and overseen by his Reapers. The Undercity resides between Heaven and Hell and is adjacent to Earth. However, without having judgement passed upon you, it is impossible to leave the city and enter those places. The Undercity is filled with skyscrapers, and just about every establishment that you would find on earth save for any establishments relating to physical health, and death. Every room in a skyscraper serves as an apartment for a single citizen. No matter who you are or what you’ve done, you will always have a home in the Undercity until your judgement day. All of the rooms are the same size and consist of a bedroom, a bathroom and a kitchen. If desired, it is possible to acquire a terrace or patio in which to garden, however in order to acquire one you must submit a request to Persephone. The city is split into two parts by the River Styx. It is impossible to cross through the River of Styx without being dragged into hell. In order to cross to the other side of the Undercity, you must make use of one of the bridges passing over the river. Arriving in the Undercity When a human dies, their soul is pulled out of their body and they have the option of remaining in place or wandering. Either way, a reaper departs from the Undercity to fetch the soul and lead them to the Undercity. But that is only if the soul fits the requirements of citizenship in the Undercity. The Reaper brings the soul to the entrance to the River Styx, where they board a boat, and begin their journey to the Undercity Port. Upon reaching the port, the orientation of the soul begins. Orientation The Reaper who brought the soul to the city informs the soul who has now reaquired their previous human form, of their purpose in the city. “A human who has done an equal amount of Kalos (good) and Kakos (bad) deeds, cannot enter Heaven or Hell and therefore must enter the Undercity so that their destination can be determined. The purpose of their citizenship in the Undercity is for them to live their life. How their life was lived will determine if they go to Heaven, Hell or if they are given a second chance at life and are reincarnated. You have 365 days to determine where you will go. In order to keep track of the Kalos and Kakos deeds that they commit, every human is given a stone tablet. One side is rough and the other side is smooth. The rough side represents the Kakos side of life and the smooth side represents the Kalos side. When a human commits a bad act, a tally mark is added to the Kakos side. When they commit a good act, a tally mark is added to the Kalos side. One the 365th day, Reapers will come and escort the human to the palace of Hades, there Hades will count the amount of Kakos and Kalos marks. If there are more Kakos marks than Kalos, the human will go to hell. If there are more Kalos then Kakos the human will go to Heaven. If the amount of marks are equal, the human will be reincarnated. Now go. Live your life. And I, being the one who brought you here, will see you in 365 days. Here is the key to your home, as well as your tablet. Keep in mind that tablets cannot be destroyed or marked by a human.” Undercity Beings Hades is the God of the Underworld and the ruler of the Undercity. He is never seen until one exceeds their time in the undercity and must attend their judgement day. The only ones who know his appearance are his reapers, his wife and the citizens that attend their judgement day. Persephone the Goddess of Spring Time, unlike her husband she is rarely seen but does make appearances when someone’s garden flourishes. She is also the one a human must submit a request to if they wish to have a garden. Reapers are creatures that oversee the Undercity, lead humans into the city and run various establishments in the city. Reapers resemble humans in every way save for their gray skin color and gray eyes. Reapers wear black and speak in low, whisper like tones however they are capable of screeching when angered. Unlike in human lore, reapers do not carry scythes to reap the souls of humans. They instead collect the waiting souls at the time of death with nooses that they loop around the souls essence.
