Image
Once upon a time, during the Victorian era, A mining company dug so deep into the earth, discovered a substance that is now known as Hellfire, a greenish energy that glowed hot with power, and while many would still steam in their everyday lives, businesses could use this Hellfire for their factories, the military could it for their weapons. The world would rejoice! This would make the world a better place.
Image
Of course, that was hardly true. While it didn't pollute the air with smog, it didn't require mining for coal and digging up the earth, it came with its own pollutants: Demons. Yes, Demons, those creatures who we were taught came from Hell, wicked things that would possess the living and damned souls. With the discovery of Hellfire, came the discovery of demons. Most looked enough like humans, as the good book said, they were Angels once before the Fall but some had twisted into vial creatures, having once been human, but lost their souls.
Image
Neither the Hellfire or the Demons that came with it was immediate news to the masses though, as the CEO of the mining company, all thanks to a snake of a man named Reginald Blackwood.
When the miners broke through and watched the Damned, go about their cursed lives, they didn't rush out, free from their torment, they couldn't because while the miners had broken through the earth and could peer into Hell, they didn't break the divine barrier that kept our worlds apart. It was more of a window into the each other's world, not a door.
Image
For Blackwood, that was fine, since they could merely scrape the edges of the barrier for the Hellfire that came through, and make a synthetic out of what he'd found. He was very wrong, for as the moment a mortal hand touched the substance, said hand began to rot, blacken and had it not been for the quick thinking of one of the other miners removing the hand, the poor miner would have rotted through. Unwilling to give up on this new semi-natural resource, Blackwood then began to research how some demons -throughout history- were able to come through, possess mortals or even been summoned, because he'd seen through the barrier that the demons could touch the Hellfire without so much as an afterthought.

After years and years of research, he found his answer, by way of witchcraft. He'd found that witches of old could use a contract to summon a demon for very specific tasks, so he drew up his first contract and summoned his first demon, a creature known only as Belial. Upon summoning the demon thought to take over Blackwood, but the businessman knew all about contracts, he had a team of lawyers and wayward priests at his side, and thus Belial became the world's first demon servant. With Belial at his side now he could mine for Hellfire, but this started another problem, if there was to be Hellfire in every home and business in the world, there would too need to be demons with contracts such as his, to use it.

Thus began the Demonic Employment Agency or DEA, where, for the right price, any person with hopes of using Hellfire could come to apply for a contract with which they could use to summon a demon. Of course, when the Church found out about this, they were in an uproar, but they could only do so much, Blackwood was sure to keep this from them until the last possible moment, and by then it would be too late. The Church was sure to keep their flocks from this blasphemy but there were far too many people wanting this new energy for them to truly fight.
Image
30 Years later, and demonic servants are the norm. They were a show of class, like having a nice carriage. Some families had multiple demons in their employ, they were the upper crust, while the lesser families had one or two.
Poor families couldn't afford demons, still used steam and clockworks but it was hard. There is, however, an annual lottery for those poor folks to win Contracts, so all isn't lost. The Church still tries to fight this, protesting outside of DEA buildings, Lottery sellers, and the like, but it still seems to be in vain. All they've managed where the construction of finishing schools for Demons so that they are perfectly polite and well behaved as well as certain rules that are standard for contracts, though they can be nulled if the contractor so wishes.
The richest man in the world, Reginald Blackwood has since grown old and frail now, and his son, Reginald Blackwood Jr. has taken the reigns of the company, with the famed demon Belial at his side.

1. God-modding is unacceptable, we are but demons and mortals here.

2. Anime pictures will not be accepted. Real images only!
this is the Victorian Era, keep that to yourselves and by that I mean, before things get too freaky deeky, fade to black.

3. If ya'll wanna get all freaky with your demonic selves, that's fine, but let's keep it classy shall we,

4. This is a steampunk setting that means, I expect the FCs to be in some sort of period clothing, what I'm saying is, I don't wanna see no bitches in blue jeans

5. Although there is no character limit it is advised that you do not to make more characters than you can handle. If at some point you become overwhelmed we could always come up with some kickass way to murder the fuck out of them.

6. When reserving your character, I want to know a few things, What the FC will be, What their Class and Species are and yes the demons cn be female too despite the title of the RP.

7. Demons are powerful, yes, but they are under strict contract, it will be up to you and your contract holder what those rules are but they aren't invincible. Any and all fights need to be fair to both writers as well as true to the story and characters involved. No one is invulnerable or unkillable. If you're unclear as to this rule, revisit rule #1 and so I know you've read the rules, write You totally ripped off Black Butler. Post this in the OOC.

8. Please stick to the character sheet but don't be afraid to spice it up and add to it. If you want to add some extra details and stuff feel free.

9. Be respectful. What happens in the IC stays in the IC. No one wants drama in OOC.

10. No one line posts! Make nice meaty posts, one to two paragraphs. If you need help with ideas, bring it up in the OOC and we can all together come up with something. Plotting is fun!


11. Real life can be unexpected and hectic at times. I would like it if everyone could post daily but I understand that that may not always be possible. So just be dedicated and post as often as you can. Dedication and activeness are how role-plays stay alive. If you are concerned with your stamina in this story but would still like to be involved, don't entangle your character in any big story arcs or plotlines that way no one is stuck waiting for you if you get abducted by aliens or some shit.

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

There is one more person to make a human so you don't have to, I'm gonna be sendng out PM's tonight and once that CS is complete, We'll begin.

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

I'm not sure if someone is making another human, but I can since it seems to be right now that we are one human short? Would everyone be okay with that?

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Yeah, right, so I'll be arranging them, they'll be totally random though (i.e I'll be putting the names in a randomizer) The idea is that you don't know who your demon or master is. Compatiblity and gender won't be at play here, I'm gonna leave up to chance who gets who. However, I will make it so that if one of you have a demon and a humzn you won't end up being your own demon or master.

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

So question for you Crimson; will you be arranging the duos or will the creators of the humans be choosing their demon?

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Almost awesome, he's accepted.

@silky, That's perfect

@Electric, All yours. The FC is fine, but if you are willing to take another human male that'll be great too.

Everyone! The CS's look amazing so far. I believe we have enough to start sorting, so keep an eye out for PMs about your demons and masters respectively!

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Well, Cyrus is finished. Feel free to PM me about his possible master.

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Well hello there! nice ripoff of Black Butler lol :p

I'd love to reserve a lower class human with the fc of lily james, though should you need the fc to be male I can do that as well

Image

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Thank you^^
LIke this?^^
[code] Image

And I will^^ Thank you again^^

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

All yours!
To add images to a thread or any post, you'll copy and paste your image's url in between this:
[code] [img]insert%20image%20url%20%20here[/img]

The cs is pretty complex for someone who is not use to coding so don't be afraid to pm me.

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Hi^^ Can I make a human character with Colin Morgan as faceclaim? btw, totally a black butler rip-off^^
I have an image, but I have zero clue about codeing or anything, so I don't know how to include it post^^'

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Awesome, awesome! She looks amazing! If you want you can take a human character since you don't have one.

Once we have an even, demon to human ratio, we'll be able to start. So get those CS's in guys!

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Hey, hey! I finally got Miss Lola done!

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Alrighty! I won't be home on Wednesday so that's fine.

Abu

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Ye ye, I should be able to get my guy submitted/finished on Wednesday, 'cause I won't have much time today or tomorrow. Lookin' forward to starting this. -cracks knuckles- c;

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

I need all of you to have your CS's in either WIP from or finished within the week okay. You guys are awesome!

Re: Gentlemen Monsters

Image

Re: Gentlemen Monsters
