The setting of this roleplay is in a steampunk type world that is run by a tyranical government that give it's people the illusion of freedom through much the same methods that the ancient Romans did (false votes, gevernment based vito's, etc.) and corruption was the foundation of the governmental body. Some spiecies of sub-humans such as vampyres are hunted by the government and must live in hiding along with humans born with the power of the Lifelink. The Lifelink is an awakening of power that grants it's carrier the powers of magic. The government fears these individuals and has a wing devoted to hunting these individuals. The Magehunters. The form of this world is entirely up to the RPers. It is freeform with the exception of the central city in which the government presides. As for the choice of characters, it is also pretty much up to Rpers. Have Fun!. ===================================================================================================== Asura ran through the alleyway in the pouring rain. His cowl and hood were damp and stuck to him like glue. We was being persued by Magehunters. Bullets whized around his ears and pinged off of the protuding brinze pipes that lined the alleys of any major city. He ran through a puddle and counted the seconds before the Magehunters behind him would run through it. He flung a static bolt behind him into the puddle just as the Hunters stepped into it. The Magehunters convulsed wildly, lightning arcing from them to the piped around them and then went limp. Asura laughed shortly and did a little jump as he ducked into another alley and tried to catch his breath.
