Hope or Despair

Hope or Despair

0 INK

On Gaia, a Parallel Earth, a war is raging. Evil forces are threatening to destroy the peaceful world. 6 people are brought together by Mother Gaia to stop evil and bring back peace by uniting the 3 races together again. It's your choice. Hope or Despair.

1,465 readers have visited Hope or Despair since Ririo created it.

Introduction

Gaia is a parallel planet which is very very similar to Earth. However its residents consist of not only Humans. The 3 main races include:

- The Shadows which consist of Demons, Fallen Angels, Ghost and other beings that are widely known as Vampires, Werewolves. OR just basically not-that-holy beings.
- The Divine which consist of Mother Gaia herself, Angels, Elements and other beings that are a part of Gaia like Fairies and Holy Spirits. OR just basically holy beings.
- The Glass which are all humans. They are humans but their race is named glass because they are so easily broken and tainted. Considered the weakest of all the races.
They are also such things as Cross-breeds between the races.

The races have lived in peace supporting one another until the Evil Forces started to creep onto them. The evil forces were actually a race. Their race, Sealed, consist of Glass that hold great wrath towards Gaia and tries to destroy it, Demons who wants the planet for themselves and Divines who were influenced. This race is led by Satan, a king originally made by Gaia to guide the human race towards a brighter future but he misused his powers and was taken back by Gaia to be sealed. The entire race is sealed by Gaia, deep in her Sacred Garden.

However as time pass, Satan got more powerful by consuming his own kind, taking them into him and getting more powerful. His missionaries from the 3 main races took it as a chance to strike and started their plans of overthrowing Gaia and take her power in and truly rule the planet. They started by breaking the ties between the 3 races and starting war with one another.

Gaia knowing of this, chose 2 from the main races to come together and restore peace in her stead.


Can you, in this mission that cannot be failed, save this world or watch it crumble and fall into despair right in front of your eyes?

Male #1: [Glass]
Male #2: [Shadows]
Male #3: [Divine]

Female #1: [Glass] [Taken by Ririo]

{May have more if you guys want to like work together}

There will be quite a lot of NPC as we proceed with the story. There have to be someone to save and someone to give out missions after all. So I will also be playing as the NPC unless you guys have preference and want to do it.

Character Sheet: (Fill this up!~) [Note that you can still add on to some of the things in the future as we progress on. So don't need to hurry.]

Name:
Nickname/Name that people calls you:

Toggle Rules

I am still not really sure of the rules it should have but I hope you can follow these.

1. Do not be rude to others.
2. Do not be 'GOD' and make yourself impossible to beat. Be it the good or evil because we all have weaknesses.
3. Do not kill off others easily, E.g. A's sword ran through B's heart and killed him. Give the other a chance to reply and it the other did say he died then that's it. Basically give the other a chance to reply to your action.
4. Do write more than 1 or 2 sentences. Describe the actions and give more information. You don't have to write an essay, just make sure it is long but not that long.
5. Do be active and post as often as you can. The best is about 1 or 2 posts every 2/3 days. If you are going away for a long time, do tell me.
6. Romance is definitely supported. Go on and be happy.
7. Have fun. Enjoy.

If you have any questions, go to the OOC and ask please. Thanks~ [If you have anything that you give I should add in, do tell me in the OOC. Thanks~]

#, as written by Ririo
Kozue finally caught up with the figure after running even more desperately after seeing that it turn around. As she got closer, she realised that it was a male.

"Were you followed?!" He had screamed at her. She was breathless, her mind was still not clear. He looked behind her.

"Nevermind, I think we're the only ones who made it out so we n-need to keep moving before that horrible shape shifting demon comes after us!" He said before pulling her wrist and he starting running again. She starting running to keep up with his speed, although her feet were already hurting so badly.

He did not come very far when he stopped suddenly causing Kozue to knock into his back. Both of them almost fell. He said hopelessly that he did not know the way in this forest. "I-I don't know too. Maybe Piyo would know, but it fainted..." Kozue breathed out. "I think that we should find a place to rest before we continue. It is getting dark now." Kozue said as she calmed down.

Re: Hope or Despair

Hi hi everyone, I am not going to be that active since my end of year exams are just around the corners. Everyone can focus more on their characters and maybe the other side of the story first. Thank you.

Re: Hope or Despair

Alrightt, now I'm just waiting on the current scene to conclude before I join inA

Re: Hope or Despair

@fonkyomom I'm sorry. Please do.

Re: Hope or Despair

ok, so they're more modern than old time. I'm sticking with that, and now I have to change my character. I mentioned it being like Middle Earth and you didn't correct me so I was thinking legitimately old times, with old technology, and old culture.

Re: Hope or Despair

@fonkyomom Do the olden time not have train stations? It's something like modern time but with many towns and village instead of skyscrapers and cities. I do believe trains were used in the past.

Re: Hope or Despair

pause. I am confused once again. I read the post and they're at a train station. What kind of "old" time are you talking about?

Re: Hope or Despair

@fonkyomom Thanks very the information. I will start "creating" places. Do I put in under the places? Can you give me some tips on how to create another place/location? Noted. :) I look forward to working with you!

Re: Hope or Despair

My point about the sweater vest is that it looked like a 21st century character, and I couldn't make out if it was because hhe just wanted to use that face or was the rp set in modern times. The demon with human form is an obvious normality. and no, not that far into the past.

By the setting I mean things like what point in the planet's history the rp takes place. For example; If it takes place in the equivalent of Earth's Middle Ages, which would be with the cobble stone towns and villages and what not. Also the places. All you have is the planet itself, instead of named towns and places where people could choose to place certain characters. Creating actual places ahead of time is better than just kind of making places up as they go along. It gives the rp structure, and I have observed that without that structure most roleplays don't last long. The season for a bit of detail, but that's not nearly as critical.

No need to apologize though, I can tell you're new to making your own roleplay. Hell, I've made some pretty detailed ones and haven't gotten more than like, one or two people to join, so you're already more going further than me. It's just things to think about for the next one you'll inevitably make. ON another note; Ill be taking that GLASS role no one seems to want.

Re: Hope or Despair

@fonkyomom I am not very sure what you are talking about. I'm sorry. However, this is in pretty "old" time setting. Where there was mostly towns and village and things like that. This is also fantasy where the demons do not appear as demons but as humans. I am sure in the past, people wears sweater too. Regarding the pictures, it is a reference for how the character looks like and the sort.

Maybe you could explain to me more in dept about the setting explanation. I'm sorry and thank you very much.

Re: Hope or Despair

Not sure if this rp takes place in a modern or an old age setting. You really should have put more work into this before publicizing it because it has a plot but no real setting, which makes creating a character very confusing. In a rp like this I would usually use the current character's as a reference, but in this case I cannot because they are very inconsistant. They go from more medieval looking characters, to an android looking character, to a dragon demon who's human form wears a sweater vest. I'm truly confused

PS: These are not critiques of anyone's choices for their own character's visual representation. You must see how the inconsistent, and outright contradictory appearances make it confusing to someone joining this while it's already in progress.

Re: Hope or Despair

I have posted. Do start anytime you like. Thank you.

Re: Hope or Despair

Hi everyone, I am thinking of starting it tomorrow as my holidays starts then. Tidy up your profile and things. :) Thanks

Re: Hope or Despair

Haha I see it now. Hehe, sorry. But there is still one not yet.

Re: Hope or Despair

It always takes so long for the Thumbnail for the character to load after you upload it... -_-

Re: Hope or Despair

Everyone do have a icon for your character. Thanks~

Re: Hope or Despair

Hi, hi everyone. All that has submitted have been approved. Do finish their profile. @ladygeekiness It is fine. I have yet to even start on my character. :) Do take your time and make it as good as you can. :D

Re: Hope or Despair

sorry, I lost all progres on my bio when my internet crashed D: Will be up soon

Re: Hope or Despair

He'll be a male shapeshifter (he'll usually take the form of a human, or a Black fox)

Re: Hope or Despair

Ok mines up. Hope she's ok... I'm still working on her personality though...

Hey, could I reserve the satan's missionary (the shadow)
