Introduction

Some feel desire just because it is there in their hearts, just aching to consume the host. Deep down it is all that they really want to feel, it is an unusual thing to comprehend but yet it is true. An example would be the man; walking down the street with his loving wife. They have been married for some time and her beauty is unfortunately declining due to the natural cause of nature. The husband sees a younger woman pass him, giving him a flirty look just because she can. Desire kicks in, suddenly he wants again; his desire for something so fresh is almost overwhelming. This man is thinking of this young woman as a piece of meat, something he would eat and then give the scraps to his dog. This is what desire is. Something so dangerous it could ruin lives in a matter of days, slowly eating away at the host. In all retrospect, Desire is a dangerous weapon to wield.

Desire resides beneath the cities pure and pristine exterior, among other sins. It seeps out of every back alley and dark crevice, the city is known as Androma. The skyscrapers ascend into the heavens where the rich reside and cultivate what is left of the world while beneath the surface lies the dark secrets and smoke filled underground. In this year of 2159 following the Nuclear Devastation of America that reduced the nation to little more than a small group of cities, the superpowers of the world scrambled to replace the US. The regions of Japan and Reformed Korea, now known as the Japanese Empire showed the world that in lacking of land mass but technological superiority introduced the new power source in the capital Tokyo, that is said to tap into the core of the planet. The other superpowers, fearing the new source of what seems to be limitless energy secured their own borders by erecting walls of massive proportions.

16th February 2159 _the Tokyo incident
..."Good Evening America, i'm Alexander Smith and welcome to this BREAKING NEWS bulletin. Just a few minutes ago, the Government lost contact with the American Embassy in Tokyo, Japan [...] Military Officials are calling it 'The Worst Tragedy in History'' with the Emperor and most of the population island lost to the cataclysmic explosion [...] We are getting reports from Nagasaki that there are mass evacuations in place [...] The origin of the blast is speculated to be the newly installed power reactor, although at this point, anything is possible [...] Scientists recorded a wave of unknown properties travel throughout the Troposphere [...] "...





When deformed creatures and 'monsters' emerged from The Black Lands _eastern japan fractured Empire went into alert. The already damaged military was faced with a new, unknown threat that was quickly encroaching on the remaining land. The newly appointed Emperor, the sixth son of the late Emperor quickly organised a mass evacuation to Reformed Korea, the homeland would be given up to save those left. Giving up the homeland was a big blow for the Empire. The creatures that emerged from the ruins of destruction sought nothing but death, to kill, to hunt down, some within the Empire blamed the superpowers from beyond the walls. Soon enough the darkness spread across Japan, reaching further south. Until there was nothing but a desolate land that used to be home to so many. Now on the coast of Reformed Korea, the tainted land can be seen as a reminder of what was, of what has been lost.

Many thought that the Empire would crumble after that loss, but the people were as resilient as ever, banding together to strive forward. "To look to the future, not to the past" it was said. But, peace will soon crumble and war will ensue. With lies, deception and death in this world we call home there is only way out, and that way is death.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

I'm guessing this isn't happening then?

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Sorry for the long wait friends, I will be making the first post later today!

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

I'm done with Kaiji~ c:

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Sorry I'm so late! Got back from my trip! Ok, time to whip up my character sheet. Almost done, just need to fix two things.

-EDIT- Need sleep, but I promise to get at least a WiP up tomorrow evening.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Sorry about taking so long (and still not being all the way done), I got held up with the holidays, work, and obsessing over how to format the sheet before I just decided to do something simple.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

I've just noticed our characters are getting titles too, which is pretty damn cool.

And it's alright for the magician, he's not having to survive alone in the streets.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Ah, okay then :)

I guess Madoka will just have a couple of more super duper tricks to perform on his shows LOL

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

@Lifecharacter_ Accepted, get cooking!

@Chrian_ Reading your history, I really hate to correct it but the powers didn't start coming to the select few until after the Tokyo incident that way everyone is like babies with their newfound power. (Well not necessarily babies since they've been given a few months to test it out but still). Other than that hiccup its all good to go!

@macco_ That is fine! You can just jump in when you get back its all g, enjoy your trip. Also, your CS is looking nice as rice my friend.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Hey there,

Soooooo I have this face claim here for Karisawa Erika:
Image
And was thinking about using it with a character idea I had. I don't know if it has a -kinesis name or anything, but was planning on her having some not-that-dramatic shape shifting power. Would it be possible to make a reservation for that?

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Okay! Unfortunately I'll be on a trip for a while, will be back early next week.
I've got the barebones of Kaiji done though. I'm going for a more minimalistic approach for his CS, hope you don't mind~


Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

My char is finished. If anyone wanted to have some sort of relationships, feel free to PM :)

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

HI HELLO IT'S ME///

@macco_ Bonjour, just have a looksee over at my CS or even @miniskirt (whose cs is literally #goals 10/10). Basically your ability will be listed as an abnormality, your nationality; so you could maybe be a spy from China or a survivor from Japan who knows the world is literally your oyster.

Also, Disclaimer: the rp is set like a few months after the evacuation to the new Japanese capital of Androma which is basically the hella high tech city. So just picture skyscrapers and superhighways.

@Darkie_ Hola amigo, i'm not quite sure on when this RP will start. Still looking for those who have reserved their power to put up a CS and then go for there. I'm not expecting all the open roles to be filled but I would love some diversity!

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

When might this roleplay start? I'm quite interested but I'll be gone this whole week but would love to make a character and join this!

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

@Astra
I saw that we don't have to use the provided CS template; what info is required then if we choose to make/use our own? o:

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

@stealthpanther_ From the limitations that you have provided I think I would be okay for you to use a telepathic character. Do your best to find a rad FC! Other than that, you iz reserved.

@miniskirt_ Reserved 4 U

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Hi, this roleplay really interested me and I wanted to know if I could reserve Tech/Technokinesis with FC of Misaka Mikoto
Image
Thanks in advance.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Just to check, since I didn't see it listed;

Would you by any chance be willing to allow a character with telepathy/ mind control? Of course, there would be weaknesses and limitations (has to be within a certain distance to her target, uses a lot of concentration, has a long recovery period after,, etc.) Also, she'd blind.

Don't have a face claim yet, mainly because the last time I used her, I made a digital doll as her picture. I am of course willing to show an old character sheet to show the basics of what she would be like

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

Ooo friends!

@reservations_ ya'll reserved get cooking

@yet-again-returning-members_ aYOOO, I know that my sudden disappearance was kind of a bummer but hey I am back and with no distractions, I am pumped as hell.

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

M'kay then ~ Always good to try out something new ~

Re: HIDDEN _ In Plain Sight

@Chrian
I was honestly on the fence about it, but it's been a while since I joined an rp that wasn't run by one of my friends, so I thought why not.

Oh no it's fine! I'm kinda fixated on grabbing Sound now as the FC's I've been looking at have inspired me~

With that decided, I'll go with Otonari Kanade from POSSESSION MAGENTA as my FC. c:
