Posessors (OOC/sign-ups. STILL ACCEPTING)

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Clementine on Mon Jul 07, 2008 8:54 am

Necromancy: The black art of bringing souls or spirits onto the physical world for the purpose of making them fulfill the summoner's wanting's.

Rictorville, a large but isolated town has a culture that includes necromancy. There, the citizens know it like a friend. The spirits and souls walking about take a fraud solid form of whatever they choose to be/whatever they are asked to be/whatever is the best form needed to complete the task asked of them. Most of them hate humans, for humans can cause them great pain by their simple touch. Spirits and souls treat the earth like a pain that will never be tamed. They wish they were unphysical again, they want to be undone, they want to sleep.

Once a child (who has at least one guardian who has a profession in necromancy) is declared mature enough by their parents, they are allowed to start basic homeschooled lessons that last about two years on necromancy besides normal school activies. By the end of these lessons, they would know how to summon an imp (a lesser spirit) by heart with the use of the most basic summoning circle, which looks like a simple target, and have memorized several important books on Necromancy. In the textbooks are ways to distinguish a spirit/soul from a true being (something that has always been alive) and how to defend yourself from one. Also at the end of their lessons is a test mailed by the government of Rictorville. If the student gets every answer correct, they are allowed to continue the study of Necromancy at the library, as well as more homeschooled lessons.

Of course, summoning isn't always as clean as it sounds.

Whenever someone does it unsuccesfully, the soul or spirit is put into the body of a human or animal, where they can easily overcome the original user and make the body their own. When they are inside a true form, physical things do not hurt them. They feel the world just as a human or animal should. But they can be smarter than that and be alongside a living human's soul inside their body, coming out and controlling only when they want to and therefore scaring the human half to death. What the spirits and souls want is to make sure that every one of their kind is safe from the evil humans, who seem to be absorbed in their own selfish wants. The only way to do this is to destroy every necromancer, every necromancing book, and every memory of someone necromancing. They are willng to do that.


Rules:
No godmoding (this includes auto-hitting)
No controlling other characters (you can have up to two)
Be literate
You don't necessarily have to be a good writer, but no one liner's and make it chunky
Keep it pg-13
And all the other's that I probably forgot =)


Character sheets (post here, and do an introduction in the IC board):
Name: (Your name, duh. But if you're playing a spirit/soul, you can only have a first name with your other names (which are like nicknames, but aren't supposed to be like Denk for Denkimahtutu or Hans for Hansellius or whatever. More like The Rock for Dwaynejohnson or Black Soul for Everto or something))
Age: (Your age. If you're a human, be under 21. I want to try to get character's who are in their learning ages so that we can have more character developement. If you're a soul/spirit you have to be over 50. That doesn't mean you act like it though. You may have died when you were 15 and have been asleep for 70 years)
Gender: (Obvious for both sides)
Human or spirit or soul: (Choose one. There is a difference between soul and spirit. Souls are PEOPLE who have died and went to the sleepy place. Spirits have always been sleeping but think like a human, though they never were. Necromancers usually summon spirits)
Abilities: (If you're a SPIRIT you're allowed to have specific supernatural powers. All the others can put down what they are good at)
How powerful: (Rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 on how powerful you are, 10 being the highest. this is either your necromancing skills or your experience as a soul/spirit. If you're not a necromancer or a spirit/soul, then you're probably like a 1 or 2)
Bio: (Obvious)
Appearence (Obvious for human, but for spirits/souls put in your current fraud form. You can change this in the roleplay. Pictures are optional)


-I will not be putting down personality because of possible character developement-
-Ic topic: posessors-please-join-t7862.html


If there's any questions, feel free to ask! I'll start the topic once we have three players.

Name: Kate Veraposie
Age: 16
Gender: female
Human or spirit or soul: Human
Abilites: Great at writing and has pretty good common sense.
How powerful: 4
Bio: Kate lives in a normal family with both parents and hasn't had anything extremely tragic happen to her. She finished her basic lessons two years ago and aced the test, but she didn't want pursue it because she wanted a career in writing. She still reads the necromancy books because she finds them incredibly interesting
Appearence: Kate is more on the cute side with long dark red hair (that she puts into two low braids on the side) and fair skin. She is an average height for her age and is naturally lean. She often wears bright tees with polos underneath and skinny jeans.

Name: Vasker (no nickname)
Age: 140
Gender: Male
Human or spirit or soul: Spirit
Abilities: Can enhance the gravitational or magnetic pull on anything.
How powerful: 7
Bio: He was unsuccesfully summoned and has been controlling the body of Nicholas Torbin for almost a year. Vaspint had difficulty adjusting to being a true form and following Nicholas's life like nothing happened at first, but after a while he learned how simple the human was and deleted his friends and personal style. The fifteen-year-old "Nicholas" transformed from funny, likeable, necromancing guy into a dark-wearing, funny, likeable guy who has no idea how to necromance, with different friends who vanishes every now and then.
Appearence: As a "human" Vasker's morphing powers have weakened, and he can now only add animal characteristics to his body instead of becoming a full panther or raven. As normal "Nicholas" he is tall and muscular (Vasker made him like that), with messy dark brown hair and a great smile, but not necessarily handsome.

Name:Kyaro (No nickname)
Age:168
Gender:Female
Human or spirit or soul:Spirit
Abilities:Has the ability to read minds and levitate things with her mind.
How powerful:8
Bio:Kyaro was unsuccessfully summoned about a year ago and has been controlling the body of young Tear Lucifer. The girl used to be a very hyper and energetic girl. Fun to be around. But now is very closed up and dark. She now has no friends and wears completely black clothes and shoes. Kyaro also completely erased the girls memory of being able to necromance.
Appearance:In the body of Tear Lucifer she has long black hair tied up in a large black ribbon and dark blue eyes. Of course these where all created by Kyaro. Kyaro was always able to change appearances.

Is that okay?
Your tender and kind wolfie neighbor

Name: Kwin Persephone
Age: 12
Gender: Male
Human or spirit or soul: Human
Abilities: As a type of 'heirloom', Kwin is "Lucis Ferre"s sole summoner. Described in detail in next application.
How powerful: 3
Bio: Begining his study of necromancy at the age of ten, Kwin quickly developed his skills. Before long, the soul of 'Lucis Ferre', a soul forever tied to service for the Persephone family, was handed down to Kwin.
Appearence: Kwin is an albino, which is a hereditary defect which results in a lack of color pigments. Due to this shortage, Kwin's skin has become a light pale, while his eyes and hair have become a snow-like white.

He wears a simple white gown, which is noticably far too large for him. While Kwin is only four or so feet tall, his gown is about 9 feet in height, when laid out. Because of this, the majority of the gown trails behind him as he walks, which has resulted in Kwin tripping, one more than one occasion. In addition, the sleeves are about a full foot longer than his arms are.

Other than this gown, he wears a black choker, and a black strap on each arm.

Name: Lucis Ferre
Age: 500 or so, give or take a few decades.
Gender: Male
Human or spirit or soul: Soul
Abilities: Capable of creating and manipulating light, so long as said light is withing a twenty foot radius.
How powerful: 8
Bio: Lucis Ferre is a reknowned spirit in Kwin's village, known as a heirloom summon by the Persephone Family. He was captured by Kwin's ancestor, and has been under the control of the eldest male. Usually, the controller of Lucis will have reached the age of 21, but since Kwin's father has passed away early, Kwin was given control of the soul.
Appearence: A small white pup of a dog, which can even be considered as 'cute', despite his rather sinister nature.

Name - Morgan Salazar
Age - 18
Gender - Male
Race - Human
Abilities - n/a
Power - 2
Bio - Morgan has always depised the arts of the dead. He refused to learn these arts in order to focus on the living side of things. He finds it genuinely difficult to get on with the majority of people as thier views are mostly the same (we must learn necromancy). so through his life he became his own person, opting to learn about the animals, plants and nature... He has a very good friend, Evan, who is a falcon who he raised from an abandoned egg.
Appearance - Not overly tall at 5'10" and not at all stocky. He is lean and looks as though he is more built for traveling through the undergroth and being quiet than fighting. He has short brown hair and is clean shaven. He wears a white shirt with a green sleveless overcoat. brown leggings and boots. he has a hunting knife on his side and wears a brown leather vambrace on his left arm for Evan.

((I hope thats alright, just thought id bring a bit of variation into your story... let me know if its ok ))

I forgot to mention this:

When they are inside a true form, physical things do not hurt them. They feel the world just as a human or animal should.


What do you mean by this? They feel the world like a human, but they do not feel physical things? I can't grasp it.

As in, if they took over the body of a real animal or human, a true form, they feel the world like we do. When they simply morph into a human instead of taking over the body of one, the feel the world with pain, like a fraud form should. Does that make sense?

Um, let's see if I've got it.

Spirits and souls can either take over a body, or turn into one.

Taking over a body results in them feeling the world as a normal human would. Essentially, they switch the memories and personality of the body.

Turning into a physical body, causes them to experience a sense of pain, when a normal human wouldn't?
