    An imaginary belt of the heavens contains the paths of the sun, moon, and planets. This belt holds guidance to the future and our deepest personalities. But most importantly, it holds twelve constellations.

    Twelve powerful entities from that very belt have forced their way into the Earth to guide miserable humans so they may seek their true potential.

    The magnificent constellations contain their own true magical superpower, each sign pertaining to their true selves. Luckily for you, you were born at the right place and right time for the zodiac to reach through you.
    And they are here to help you see your powers through.
    You are unfamiliar with these Zodiac abilities but as you travel on your journey, you will soon master them in due time.


    Unfortunately, there are 6 good Zodiacs, and 6 evil Zodiacs, each balancing each other out with their power.

    For the crude and evil, their job is to find and capture the other 6 Zodiacs and harvest the power for themselves.

    For the good and honorable, their job is to find and convert the other 6 Zodiacs. Once all the twelve have reunited, they are able to rule the world with their powers and keep the world at peace.

    (You get to choose if your Zodiac Sign is good or evil.)

    I'm back at it again! I should really calm myself with RP ideas. Oh well. c:
    GET READY FOR VAGUE.

    The Zodiacs have broken through the stratosphere in search of their human companion. Of course, their huge god-like bodies can't possibly hide in plain sight, so they go searching. Searching for a mere human that was born at the right place and time.
    That human is you.
    You were a normal and plain human for all these years then suddenly you've got the superpower of a Zodiac. But, what do you do with this new change?


    Do not worry, people will come after you.
    People from huge research facilities that know about the Zodiac entities are coming for you.
    Are they good? Are they bad? If they find you, then you shall know the answer.


    Once these people have recruited you into their Zodiac group, this is where your new story begins. Whether you are good or bad, you are to carry out your mission to find those other Zodiacs while learning about your new powers along the way.

  2. I am tentatively interested. Need more details first.
     
  3. What would you like to know?
     
  4. I curious to know how much you have fleshed out the actual Zodiac gods at this time. Their attributes, personality, role, and I guess whatever particular powers they pass down to their humans?
     
  5. Oh! Yes! I actually do have all of those written down in a doc. I'll have those posted up, but I feel as though the powers would be chosen from whoever wishes to choose a certain Zodiac.
     
  6. Right, well thats great. I really like this idea. I had been wanting a Zodiac kind of thing to play with and the idea of them being Gods is pretty great.
     
  7. What's your Zodiac sign actually? I kind of need to make sure that the idea of putting forth personalities is going to be accurate. Because with people and Zodiacs, you could have,

    L I B R A:
    Libras like to be around other people, they are all about partnerships and groups. They are happiest when other people are around and when other people are doing their work. They are lazy but like posh surrounding and nice decor. These two extremes could strike a balance and the Libra living on his own could either have a very messy place or a very intricately decorated place. They can be independent, they have the intelligence and the full capability within but would a Libra rather co-exist/depend on others.

    And some people would truly agree with that statement, and then there's others who will completely disagree with that.
     
  8. I am a Capricorn.

    Although, I do not put any stock into Astrology. As much as I like that stuff, I do not believe in any of it. I find that personality descriptions of the Zodiacs are often just traits that everyone exhibits. To what degree and how often someone displays a specific trait is individual and entirely debatable. But as far as general description of people based on their signs. The majority of people can easily fit into all the signs given the right circumstances.

    But that is just my opinion. That is why I was interested in your progress on fleshing out the Zodiacs themselves. I am much less concerned with getting "my" sign as I am just curious to see how you differentiate each Zodiac from the other.
     
  9. I am interested, my Commander!

    I could go for Capricorn if PersonaWolf doesn't want that spot. =)
     
  10. Well, I did just update the post. I did not put any personality traits in there, just some factoids.

    For me personally, I find the mere purpose of Astrology quite entertaining in a way that makes me want to learn more. I do not believe in it, nor do I follow it. I just enjoy looking through what others have to say about others and their lives.
     
  11. Looks quite intriguing. Definitely interested in the Scorpio role.
     
  12. Done deal. Do you wish to make Scorpio a good or evil character?


    Just found some canon abilities. Will be adding them right away.
     
  13. I'd love a spot!
    Virgo and Aries are choices, but I can't seem to choose though.
    I'm a Taurus, FYI.
    :jump::jump::jump:

     
  14. Hehe, awesome! Thanks for taking interest! And, sorry for leaving you guys in the dust with that other RP. Maybe you should heads or tails for which Zodiac you want. c:
     
  15. I'm interested! I'm actually a Gemini and I think I would love to take up that spot!
     
  16. Can I have Virgo please? Because my zodiac is Virgo :3

    EDIT : Hatter~ Do you mind giving me Virgo? But if you want to take Virgo, I'm good anyway ^^
