Maker's Hand

Maker's Hand

0 INK

In the year 2036, a war wages once again under the noses of the public. The Magi of the Magi Society once again seek to maintain order while under attack of the Dark Order of Thelema. A young man chosen by fate finds himself in the middle of the conflict.

1,197 readers have visited Maker's Hand since ParcifalZen created it.

Introduction

[Under construction]

Toggle Rules

The following is a "Code of Conduct" so to speak, that is not meant to be followed strictly, but merely exists to maintain order.

We are a group based around original content, thus we only accept Original Characters.

Refusal to RP with another player is acceptable only with justified reason. If you simply do not like they player, you cannot refuse to RP with them, but can ignore them IC.

This is a mature group. Mature themes lie within. If you cannot handle it, then you may leave. Note that this does not mean RP sex is allowed within this group, even for story purposes. "Mature" should not translate to "Pornographic", so please keep that amongst yourselves.

We do everything we can to avoid drama. If someone starts OoC drama over our Campaigns, or during OoC chats, or anything of the sort, you are advised to get them to stop as best as you can. If they remain stubborn, a moderator should be consulted. As I have stated, this is a mature group, and should know how to get along like civil members of society.

We will not tolerate attacks on others based on Race, Sexual Orientation, Religious or Political Views, or personal preferences.. If you want to talk about such things, try do so amongst yourselves.
Lastly, we expect everyone here to cooperate and get along with one another. Any and all complaints should be sent to me via message, and I shall address them.
-General Manager Maximilian Kelly (i.e: Kenshin Kouki)

You may not make up your own Abilities, Weapons, Armors, Locations, etc. without discussing them with a GM
Fighting is perfectly acceptable.
Kills are allowed, but are only official and permanent upon GM or Moderator Approval
Realism. Implement realism into your roleplay.
No modding of any kind.
Do not use knowledge you obtained OoC while IC.
No controlling the actions of others without their consent.
No usingabilities and powers made up on the spot.
Do no cross OoC grudges and such with IC grudges.
Characters may only use the abilities and powers present in their character sheet unless given GM approval.
Characters should follow their current storyline properly. They should also be true to form.
If you are unclear on ANYTHING, consult the GM



Out of character

Grammar. Make sure your posts are well written and descriptive - not long and overly windy.
No modding of any kind, including using OoC knowledge while IC (only stated again to emphasize that this isn't acceptable be it OoC or IC), Using powers you aren't capable on the spot, or disrupting the flow of the RP.
Do not spam or advertise in the chatbox or in the group.
Do not post OoC during an RP. Chat is specifically for OoC Discussion.



Combat & posting

If you are in an RP, start a posting order.
Before fighting, find a fight moderator, to prevent godmodding.
If you are in a Campaign, keep in mind you are being monitored.
D&D spells are welcome if run by and approved by a GM.
Combat between combatants should be discussed in chat first, in case of a argument (This does not mean pre-plan your fight) .
If you have a key character in a campaign, try and show up for RP at least 3 out of 7 days to RP, if only for an hour.
Characters may NOT possess powers and magical abilities, unless approved by a GM.
Failure to comply to these rules may result in the penalization by a Moderator or GM.

Moderators & Game Masters

Moderators run the group and keep things neat and orderly. They also prevent godmodding through penalization. They must follow the code of conduct, and advise others to do so as well. A Game Master (GM) adds additional guidelines that are roleplay specific, and is considered the Overseer of a Scenario.
Before penalizing someone, warn them once. The warning must be obvious, in case of future disputes.
Before banning someone, warn the player twice.
To have questions answered, talk to the GM
If a Moderator/GM is away, do not pester them.
A Moderator/GM may lose their privileges if they abuse the rules more than twice.
Moderators are expected to moderate the players. Check others posts for discrepancies, explain themes, and answer questions. If a Moderator does NOT do this, then why even Moderate?
A Moderator/GM may lose their privileges if they do not do their jobs, and aren't around to even moderate or host more than twice a week.

It is up to the Moderator to figure out what's been going on if they have been absent.

Thankfully, the it was only sunset.

The bright yellow sun drifted down behind the horizon, creating hues that shifted from a bright yellow, to a deep magenta, then to a dark purple, before fading to a deep blue dotted with distant white lights overhead. The buildings that composed the view and their giant shadows that loomed behind them were captivating.
It was too bad that Kou couldn't admire them. He was filled with worry, wondering where Misato could have gone.
Shintinabe was dangerous at this time of day, and that concerned the fiery haired magus. His red eyes drifting back and forth across the landscape as he ran with panicked feet, frantic footsteps echoing through the abandoned district.
"Misato!!" He shouted at the top of his lungs, twisting and turning through the alleyways.
"Misato?!! Where are you!?!" He called out in vain, hos voice growing hoarse with each yell.
It wasn't until beads of sweat collected at his brow, and he had all but lost his breath that he caught sight of the girl, standing on an overpass, looking at the sunset.
"Misato..." He said meekly with relief, before running up to where she was.

Misato was staring blankly out at the horizon, her head resting against one hand. She seemed completely oblivious to Kou, and the fact that he was calling her name. Completely oblivious to everything, actually. Even the bitter cold that rushed around her went unnoticed, despite the fact that she'd run off without her jacket.

Kou made it to the overpass, looking at her carefully to check if she was hurt.
Thankfully, she was alright.
"Misato..." Kou sighed with relief, and proceeded to walk to her.
He was more than just happy to see her. Kou was overcome with feeling that warmed him at the core. His heart pounded, as he looked at the visage of the woman he loved, illuminated by the warm glow of the setting sun. Misato was quite beautiful. Her most stunning feature of all was her eyes. They were like a cat's: refined yet somewhat wild, glowing with independance. Kou would stared into those teal beauties of hers, he'd always find himself so captiavted that he was unable to speak.
But... Something was wrong. Her eyes were blank. She seemed so... Distant. Kou didn't like this.
Once he got close to her, he spoke.
"Misato, what's wrong?" He asked, reaching for her hand.

Misato jumped slightly, her head whipping in the direction of Kou's voice, eyes wide. Her heart beat so loudly in her ears that she reckoned he could hear it too. That same heart skipped a beat as she recognized the flaming hair and look of concern written across the face of the one person in the world who would bother to come after her.
She let her hand slip into his, though she couldn't exactly bring herself to speak. Her eyes flickered over his face for the briefest moment before looking away, the same way she had looked at him on the first day of school.

"Please answer me." Kou requested, taking her hand with both of his and bringing it close to his heart.
I need to know you're all right."

Misato pressed the tips of her fingers against his chest, over his heart. She smiled a little at the steady drumming of his pulse.
"I'm glad your heart is still beating." She spoke softly. "I was afraid it would have stopped a while ago."
She stepped forward and rested her forehead against his shoulder. "I wish it didn't have to stop beating. That it wouldn't, and you didn't have to be the one put through all this."

"Everything will be fine, Misato." Kou said, gripping her hand reassuringly with his right hand; the hand with the Mark of the Maker.
"As long as I have this last layer of the seal... I'll live a long enough time to fulfill my dreams.
We'll make it through this. And then... We'll go an see the world together."

Despite not fully believing what he said, Misato nodded slightly.
"I wish.." She started, straining to form the words she wanted to say. "I wish we could have gotten married.." She muttered into his shoulder. "You could have met my dad.. And my mom.. I think you would have gotten along well with them.."

Kou laughed reassuringly.
"And we still can, Misato. I have a good 20 to 30 years left." He placed a hand under her chin, tilting her head up so her eyes could meet his. So she could see the sincerity in his gaze, and hear it in his voice. He meant everything he was saying. It was no lie.
"You're getting all angsty for no reason. I'm alive. I will live for a good deal of time. And I want to spend all that time with you."

Something about the way he spoke made her breath hitch. Or maybe it was just being around him in general. This flame headed goofball, this..extremely sweet soul. Misato's gaze softened a little and her expression melted into a smile.
"Let's get Thelema out of the way then, so we can have some more time to spend together."

Threading her fingers through his, Misato nodded. Even though she wouldn't admit it, his hands alone were probably warm enough. But, she didn't argue with him as they started down the stairs to the overpass.
