XXXX From the beginning of time, gods existed. Beings descended from the sky with amazing abilities, and bodies that recovered from any wound. There were thousands, all suffering from the same problem: a lack of order. If you take a moment to think about it, it makes sense. Dozens and dozens of immortal creatures, each with a far fetched sense of power... everyone would want to rule.

It started with petty arguments and it evolved into full blown fights. It was hard to say what was the worst about it all. How much the fighting escalated or how it never stopped. When immortals fight, they do not simply die. They become wounded, spend a day or two healing, then go at it again as fiercely as before. It was a never-ending progress that soon almost all of the gods were sucked into. If they were not fighting for power they were fighting to stop the bloodshed, though their methods proved counteractive... It seemed the fighting would never end.

Then, seemingly out of nowhere stepped three gods. Their motives, at first, were unclear but all knew one thing for certain: these were very powerful figures. Figures that could whip the rest into submission and did just that. It seemed like a miracle; that there were people powerful, gutsy, and intimidating enough to settle the fighting once and for all. Their strength was inexplicable and their position impossible to challenge. They were gods among gods, and the rest could thank their lucky stars that these three wished for peace and prosperity. And it was peace and prosperity they brought.

With the arrival of the three the immortal bloodshed came to an end. A government was formed and the three maintained order while sitting at the very top. For years and years all was well. Everything advanced--- agriculture, technology, society, space travel, you name it and rest assured it soared. The gods were apparently happy, and distraught seemed like a thing of the past. The three had created an apparent utopia.

ImageOne day, the three found themselves invited to a party by an anonymous god/goddess. The occurrence was... odd to say the least, so it was understandable that they were suspicious. But not so suspicious that they wouldn't go. It's not like the party took place in a remote area or had any initial danger to it... They were very powerful after all; none in the world could sensibly threaten them. But just in case they amped up their before attending and carried with them a sense of caution.

Upon entering the party they found themselves in all white room facing someone whose face they couldn't quite see. The second the door closed was the second it started. The second they realized the intensity of the trap they'd just walked into. The splitting headache, insane cramps, and blurry vision were but a few indicators aside from the draining of their powers and eventual loss of consciousness.

When they awoke, they found not even the strength to open their eyes. Whoever their saboteur was knew the three would amp up their power upon attending this party, therefore making it easier to drain every last inch from their bodies. For weeks they found themselves blinking in and out of consciousness. It must have been months before they could muster full awareness. But could they really be called aware? They weren't aware of their past, their cause or comrades.

Not only had their powers been taken, but their memories as well.

ImageUnbeknownst to them, as everything was now, not only had they been striped of their memories and powers, but of their home as well. They were no longer on the planet of the gods, but the planet of a much more inferior race: humans. It was called Earth. The place was crawling with them; humans milling about their lives carrying around an unhealthy amount of arrogance. The three would be stranded here for the next portion of their lives.

One might wonder who'd have the wit, and not to mention audacity to do such a thing. Why screw over those who brought peace and prosperity to your species? Those who halted what would have been eons more of violence and grudges? ...For power, of course. Greed was a powerful thing. Even gods bowed to its every will. The person who defeated the three were but one of them. Of course, he didn't down the three alone. He had help from three others, ones each with their own ideals and motives. Some would wonder why this power-hungry person allied himself with others. If he wanted power, why share it? Well, he never planned to share it. Either he tricked them or they were looking for something else entirely; the only thing known for certain is that one thing they did not receive was power... They were sent to the human realm along with the former rulers. Not as punishment, but as part of the plan.

Like it or not, the three were once extremely powerful beings and to say their power could never return was to make a mistake. Though it was unlikely, there was the possibility, as well as the possibility of their memory coming back. If either of these came back the saboteur knew he'd be screwed, so he took extra precautions. He sent his three allies to 'accompany' the three ex-rulers to the human world, to feed them fake backstories and lives. To make sure they never recovered.

And so they did. They watched over the ex-rulers, each for their own reasons. Be it by debt, blackmail or just favor, they executed the plan and kept with it for years and years, eventually eons...



ImageImage
Image

It was in the 21st century that their memories and powers began returning. Whether the three watching knew this or not was hard to say. Hell, it was hard to say whether or not the ex-rulers were aware. The return of their awareness was timed far from perfectly; by the time one knew everything and had at most a quarter of their power back another remained oblivious and the other could only recall half of the past.

The fully aware ex-ruler knew this, and devised a plan to meet up with the others in hopes the appearance of the others would spark their memories. Though it would be hard to execute, seeing as they were scattered all about the planet, and those goddamned watchers were always on their case...

Hello and thank you for reading this far! I'd give you a cookie if I had any... oh well... I'll give you a role (or a chance to compete for one, that is) if you reserve! If you reserve you get one day to submit a characters (WIPs are fine) and five days to finish. Upon reserving tell me the (anime only) face claim you intend to use, their role, and a bit about their personality to let me knew you have some genuine interest. You don't have to give me a bunch of paragraphs, (though that'd be awesome), just a paragraph would be fine! Also, quick note, watchers are also extremely powerful and are bound to one of the rulers... To who will be decided upon creation of all the characters.

I'm really really tired and it's two in the morning so I'll get the character sheet up tomorrow... It'll be in the OOC... Goodnight. Also, I'll go more into the plot in the OOC... tomorrow of course.

Toggle Rules

Ah yes, rules. You can't avoid them, can you?

  • Don't g-mod, please.
    No one likes a g-modder so please, don't be one.
  • Have fun.
    This is probably the most important rule on here. We roleplay to have fun. That is law. If you're not roleplaying to have fun, if you don't roleplay and achieve fun, then you are breaking the law. Do us a favor and don't break the law. Have fun, goddammit. Also, when you're reserving, list the name of your favorite song! And post a funny gif.
  • Keep fights IC.
    Fights IC stay IC. Please don't take fights OOC, and make everyone uncomfortable! No one wants to hear you quarrel, let alone be in the quarrel. Next password instruction: mention my favorite song when reserving.
  • Be committed.
    No one likes someone who bails. It ruins the entire roleplay for everyone. It creates what you call a dead roleplay. That's the last thing I want. So if you're going to be out for a while, if you have to bail, please, at least tell me. It may not seem like it, but it does soften the blow. And try to be committed to this roleplay, okay? I understand you have a life outside of this website. I do, too (lies.) But try to post at least three times a week, if not more.
  • Be literate.
    400 words a post, at the very least. No acceptations! (I check >:S) And please, have decent grammar and spelling. It's not that hard to click the little red line, is it? I understand a few mistakes now and then, and they're fine as long as they don't mar the quality of the post.
  • Have fun.
    HAVE FUN GODDAMMIT!
  • Reservations.
    Reservations last for 24 hours. If you submit a WIP, that's fine, and you'll get five days to finish. And I do keep track, so don't think about slacking! Also, if given a good reason, I will give out extensions.
  • Cursing is allowed.
    I don't mind cursing. You can curse like a sailor for all I care. If that bothers you, then I guess this isn't the roleplay for you. There's nothing else to say here. By the way, my favorite song? Currently (this is always subject to change), it's Smash! by Starbomb.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Thanks! So happy to be back. So it looks like Applesauce hasn't finished their powers section yet, but that's about it. So pairs comin' in soon. As for toajojo and Daiagnosis (I hate this part so much, ohgodohgod) if both of your characters are done, then it's probably decide who got the spot. *cries*

I CANNOT wait to get this roleplay into motion... now I just need to finish my character. *very guilty look* I'm doing it ASAP, don't worry!

EDIT:

Once I get Rye's personality down, which I'm working on right now, I'm probably going to post the relationships thread. Just felt like I should put that out there. We need to get this roleplay on the roll!

EDIT (again) :

Role call. Who is still on board?

ANOTHER EDIT RIGHT HERE (LAST ONE I SWEAR): @toajojo @Daiagnosis So I read over the character sheets very intensely and I can't *bad word* decide. I'm gonna sleep on it, probably go through the school day contemplating, then I'll update you guys tomorrow night. I promises. I'm so terribly sorry for making you wait this long.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

I AM HERE I AM ALIVE AND SO IS THIS ROLEPLAY

SO MY LAPTOP HAS SOMETHING AGAINST ME AND DECIDED TO BREAK BUT IT'S OKAY NOW AND I AM BACK ON THIS ROLEPLAY! Wooooo! Daiagnosis I shall look at your character right away, I bet she's beautiful, and if powers are done I will be determining pairs immediately!

I am so terribly sorry to disappear like that! This roleplay shall keep moving! This, I promise!

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

@ Daiagnosis:

I do not D: But I have sent her PMs so that when she does return, she will instantly get back on track :3 -updater- XD

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Genesis is done! All with the exception of the Bio, of course. Does anyone know when Fear Cat might be back on? I don't want this roleplay to die before it gets the chance to start.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

@ Daignosis:

Alright Dai~ Thank you! I will make sure Fear knows for you when she comes on! Can't wait to see it~

Faithy

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

My character, Genesis, will hopefully be finished tomorrow.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

I've also never heard of Smash! by Starbomb but I'll check it out, I like discovering new music. My favourite song at the moment is oh gosh that's a hard decision. At the moment I've been listening to Fuel - Shimmer a lot. I'll stick with that for now.

Funny Gif time!

Now I heard there was an ex ruler spot available and that's all I really know. If they are I'd like to reserve that spot because sweet corn and potatoes this RP looks awesome!

So I heard it's the semi-aware spot that's open. My only problem is I'm unsure if a male or female role is preferred and I'm having trouble choosing between these FCs:

Alex Benedetto
Image
She isn't the type to hide when things get nasty. Alex will always fight back, a lot of the time she doesn't think before she acts. If someone she cares about is in trouble, if someone is threatening her, she will run straight at them with no real mercy in her eyes and full of determination. She tends to get into a lot of trouble easily, needs to learn to keep her mouth shut, sometimes her aggressive attitude causes more trouble over intimidating others. She loves to joke, is pretty open with her feelings unless she's sad she doesn't want to show weakness by crying in front of others. Easy to talk to, easily angered/annoyed, cares greatly about others who can't defend themselves, courageous. Age: 24

Yamato Hotsuin
Image
Doesn't like to joke about serious subjects, even if someone is simply trying to lighten up the mood. Conservative, quiet, dislikes opening up to others, trust issues, rarely trusts anyone, easily annoyed, speaks his mind when he's 100% certain he's right. Can be quite sly and untrustworthy, is not selfish and actually cares greatly about others. Doesn't seem very approachable but is actually a great listener. Thinks strategically, if saving someone might hinder another, depending on the cost he is capable of leaving others behind. Age: 17

Worick Arcangelo
Image
Shameless seducer, likes to flirt, playful, always seen grinning or smoking. Seems to wear a mask, hiding all his serious feelings behind believable smiles and jokes. Can be a bit of a scaredy-cat, is very afraid of bugs which is surprising considering his rather tough exterior. Even when things get serious, he tries to lighten the mood with his charm. You will only ever see his smile fade when something greatly worries him, angers him. Although he acts like it, he doesn't really care a lot about others as much as you might think. It takes a lot of emotional bonding for him to really open up, be protective and show real interest in someone. Age: 30

Sorry this is a rushed post and I can edit it with brief personalities it's 5am here and I need to sleep. XD

EDIT: Finished the personalities, I just can't decide on which FC send help. <:'D

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

@Alliqua, thank you. She's quite fond of you as well. She told me about the 1x1 and is very excited.

@Fear the Cat, thank you. I'll send her both of your regards.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

@Cheshire_Girl
D: My heart goes out to you! I wish a painless recovery and a fortunate future to the both of you.

@ Alliqua_Dark
Great. He's been accepted.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Izanagi is done except for Bio...
@Chesh, oh no :( My heart and prayers will go towards you and her. As I've grown quite fond of her through this site.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Awesome! Thank you so much!

I'm in a bit of a dilemma right now. My little sister (The_Queen, this actually happens to be her favorite site) is in the hospital and grows weaker each day. I'm going to promise to do my best but if you find that I'm lagging, or not as interactive as you'd like, I would completely understand if you kick me out. Again, I am going to do my absolute best not to let you down.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Awesome! She's been accepted~

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

So Cress is pretty much done aside from her biography if you wanna look her over.

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Attention!

I know I should have said this before, but I'm afraid it wasn't on my mind. Anyway, you're probably wondering what the hell I'm talking about, so I suppose I'll get to the point. For right now I'd prefer if everyone didn't write their backstories--- not until pairings are decided. This is because once decided backstories may collide, certain events may need to happen in both, etc., and I fear without collaboration everything'll end up contradicting one another and everything will get all messy.

Anyway, I digress. Now that I'm on the topic, I might as well explain how watcher and ex-ruler are to be paired. My plan was to pair based on two aspects: character preference and power, in that order. Character preference is, quite plainly, a watcher's preference. This pertains to any past squabbles/disagreements/happenings that might affect their pairing. Secondly is power, which is also pretty simple. It's based on opposites, or rather, what trumps what. For example, say there was a watcher who was the God of Water, and an ex-ruler that was the God of Fire. They would be paired. However, if the situation were to be reversed, they definitely would not be paired. Does that make any sense?

Now, these may not factor into everything enough, so if these don't matter enough or end up evening each other out, I shall resort to a random generator. But guessing that this won't happen, I ask that everyone tries to prioritize the powers section of their cs since I plan to assign pairs as soon as possible. Also, might I mention, the second pairs are assigned I expect PMs to start flying about relations! Of course, this goes for every character's relations, but for pairings I can't stress it enough! ...Speaking of relations, once most of the characters are done I plan on posting a relationships thread. Just putting that out there. Anyway, that is my announcement. If anything doesn't make sense, you have any comments/questions/concerns, please, tell me! I'll be happy to help. I'm available in both OOC and PMs!

Goodnight. *drops mic*

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Alright, I've finally settled on Miyazono Kaori!

Re: Greed Among Gods: Primary Thread

Personally, @Chesh, I like Lucy better but either one is adorable!
