City of Despair

City of Despair

Vespodil, while it seems beautiful on the outside it's rotten to the core within. [Find out more inside]

Introduction

Image


Vespodil is a city on the rise, it's production of new technology and manufacturing of grand products has made its citizens wealthy and happy...that is, if you're in the top 1%. Many came to Vespodil seeking factory jobs and a chance to better their future and the future of their future generations, but due to the corrupt government of Vespodil that takes all the money for itself and gives little to nothing to its citizens, their dreams will quite possibly never come to fruition. And those who speak out or fight back against the injustices of Vespodil's government are simply thrown into prison in conditions unimaginable, perhaps never to be seen again. No trial, nothing; just locked away for treason.

But a corrupt government with control of the economy and corrupt corporations aren't the only bad things in Vespodil, there are much worse, much darker entities that are destroying lives from the inside. Strange occurrences have been happening in Vespodil. Crime rates are on the rise, with more murders and robberies the city has ever seen. But even more frightening, are the paranormal entities that have been showing up in Vespodil, creatures seemingly from hell have been terrorizing the citizens, torturing and killing them, and the government is doing nothing to stop it, and in fact, the wealthy have barely ever been attacked by the paranormal creatures.

However, a resistance against these horrors is rising. The VR, Vespodil’s Resistance, is fighting against these demons and trying to bring an end to the injustices of Vespodil’s government by attacking factories and military bases, along with sometimes bringing harm to the wealthy government officials. Many of the members of the resistance were swiftly arrested, but they have their own supply of strong weapons as well, as their weapons incorporate magic as well, so the VR won’t go down that easily.

Who will win this battle in the end? The wealthy government? The spirited resistance? Or will both fall victim to the demons that are rising in the city? That’s for you to find out by joining this roleplay.

Extra: PM me if you want your character to have something extra, such as magic or be part demon, etc.

Roles

Government
The Government is set up in a way that makes it sound somewhat like a Democratic Republic, but in reality it's more of a monarchy, where all of the power is in the President's hands, and when they die the Vice President will take over unless they have a successor. The Nobles are simply wealthy members of the President's court that will do anything to keep them safe.
President: Victor Hughes-Alive/Deceased
Vice President: [Reserved for Eiko B. Winters]
Noble #1: Birdie Perez-Alive/Deceased
Noble #2: [Open]

Vespodil's Resistance
Vespodil's Resistance will take part in missions that will be posted in the OoC if they choose to take them. They're in direct opposition to the Government and will stop at nothing to destroy them. They have special magically embedded weapons to help them fight against primarily demons and the paranormal entities showing up in town, and other weapons to fight against the government.
Leader: Luis McCay-Alive/Deceased
Second in Command: Sandra Villar-Alive/Deceased
Member #1: [Reserved for BespectacledBeauty]
Member #2: [Reserved for moahi]
Member #3: [Reserved for Imbecile]

Civilians
There's no set number for civilians, but I don't want to see too many. Civilians are just members of the city who may join the Resistance, get swayed by the Government, join/start a new force to protest the government, who knows, there are many possibilities for civilians.
#1: Naomi Winters-Alive/Deceased

Rules
-STAY ACTIVE
-No godmodding/marysues
-You can have up to 3 characters, HOWEVER, if you make 3 characters one of them will definitely eventually die at a time chosen by you or myself.
-If you choose to only make 2 characters or below, be warned that they still may die, but you have control over whether or not they do.
-This is a mature rp, so expect gore, swearing as long as it makes sense, horror, etc. But let's not take it too far.
-Don't fight in the OoC.
-I have the last say as the GM.
-These rules are subject to change.
-If one of your characters die you may make a new one unless explicitly stated.
-NPC demons and such are controllable by anyone during battle unless explicitly stated, just don't get too carried away c;

Re: City of Despair

Because no this place has no activity at all, and my character has not even been accepted, I'm going to have to quit, though I might wait a day or two more so I can use my character on some other RP I find.

Re: City of Despair

Oh my-- I forgot!!! I'm soooooooooo sorry! I was going to post about it, but... see, there was some freaky construction and it cut off our internet signal somehow. (It sucked, they worked all through the night too, and it was RIGHT. NEXT. DOOR. Needless to say, I didn't sleep very well.), so I went around and posted it in all my RPs that I would be gone, but since I didn't have a character created here, it wasn't in my list, and I forgot to post the info here!!! I'm so sorry!!!!!!!

Re: City of Despair

oH MY GOD, I AM SO SORRY.
I'm afraid I'm gonna have to cancel my reservation. > A <
God, even though I was super excited to play as well.
I was expecting to have a lot of free time this summer, but turns out we're gonna be spending this week preparing for a holiday, so I can't be handling a load of roleplays at this time.

I am super sorry, but good luck with the roleplay!

Re: City of Despair

I'm excited to start!
When do you think we'll be able to?

Re: City of Despair

@Eiko B. Winters: Sure, the spot's reserved for you ^^

@IvyCoppersky: Yeah your character can just be a human gifted with Ice abilities.
@moahi: Sure that works :) And lol I didn't mean overrated I was saying as long as it's just not too over powered or too hi-tech ^^

Re: City of Despair

would there happen to be any spots left in this role play. I have an idea for a Yandere character (In case you didn't know, a Yandere is a person who seems nice and innocent, but when pushed to a certain level will break into pure insanity.) I was hoping for a role the resistance, but if all those spots were taken I'd be happy to take any other roles.

Actually, now that i think about it, could i reserve the vice president?

Re: City of Despair

Hiiii c: Someone (moahi) claimed a spot for the last member of the Resistance through PM.....buuuuuuuut more spots can be added for the Resistance! The more the merrier when it comes to taking down a corrupt regime! Your character definitely sounds like they'll be a fun addition, can't wait to see them.

That said we still need a Vice President and a Noble so if anyone feels like they're comfortable with making extra characters you definitely may! If not we'll have to wait until others check out the rp and wanna join which they hopefully will ^^

~I also added 2 new rules~

And BespectacledBeauty and moahi, I got your private messages but I can't respond to PM's and neither of you are online so I can't open a chat thing with you. So I'll respond to your messages here I suppose.
@BespectacledBeauty: It depends what kind of magic you want your character to have as we already have a character who performs miracles. Does elemental magic work for you?
@moahi: A cyborg character sounds interesting, but if you could send me the picture you want to use through PM that'd be great cus I don't want it to be too high tech or too overly done you know? Thanks!

Re: City of Despair

Hullooo, could I claim the spot for a member of the Resistance?
Ehee, I really wanna make a character who dabbles in explosives, and is a littttlee bit cuckoo. Haha.

Re: City of Despair

@girlwt: It depends, what way are you thinking of? If anything you can try sending a CS and we could work it out.
@BespectacledBeauty: Okay :) sorry about that though xc!

Re: City of Despair

Awww darn well okay I'll just be taking a member then.

Re: City of Despair

I have a question, can a citizen someone who is connected with the government and the resistance in a way

Re: City of Despair

Someone already made a character sheet for the resistance leader and it was accepted :x

Re: City of Despair

In that case I'd like to reserve the resistance leader please and I'm going to make her female. I may not have the character in until tomorrow.

Re: City of Despair

Hey, sorry about that, if you could please use anime ^^ I'll update the character sheet to let that be known.

Re: City of Despair

I think I wanna join this, not sure if I have time though.
And yeah what kind of picture should we do for the appearance?

Re: City of Despair

What were you planning on using for face claims? Anime, real, video game, ect?
