The next generation of Reapers are here, and ready escort the dead to their resting place: The underworld!

1,405 readers have visited REAPERS since Sheoul created it.


The Grim Reaper has long been around in the stories of many lands, in many tongues, in many forms. Many believe he is simply a metaphor, but he is more.

Little does the world know that the Reaper must choose a human to take over his job once every 100 years, and there are more than one reaper. In actuality there are hundreds of them, all fulfilling the duties of escorting the dead souls to the underworld where they may rest in peace.

With Reapers there are rules. Three golden rules. Never tell. Never for personal gain. Never too late. A reaper must never tell a human they are a Reaper, a reaper must never kill a human to benefit themselves, and a reaper must never under any circumstance leave a soul to walk the earth. If a soul is left alone and never taken to the Underworld, it will change and become a foul beast that preys on the souls of the living to sustain itself. These beasts are the Keres and are to be killed on sight. Recently there has been an increase of these beasts, causing Reaper Recruitment to go up by tenfold.

The Powers Of A Reaper:

A Reaper has a small amount of power to help protect itself and souls. The main weapon is it's Scythe which is usually, (When the reaper is in their human form, see next section) in the form of a necklace or other garment. A Reaper also has the power to cause seemingly impossible things to happen. Some have caused things from pianos falling on people to trucks exploding. A reaper must use this power with caution and kill only those who are on their list. [For 'list', see below]. And Finally a Reaper has the innate ability to heal most wounds, excluding mortal wounds on a person who is Listed.

The Work Of The Reaper:

When a Reaper is not working, they are in a human form and live as a human. Their Scythe turns into a type of jewelry so that they can hide it and their Aura becomes hidden.
When it is time for work to be done a Reaper can will themselve out of hiding their aura and command their weapon into it's natural state. A small parchment will be delivered to the Reaper and this parchment is known as their 'List'. The list of names and times of people to die, and when they are to die. How they die is entirely up to a Reaper. When a soul is dead the Reaper takes their hand and takes them to the nearest Gate. A gate is a portal in a hidden area through which the dead move to the underworld under the Protection of Reapers. Humans lack the ability to see Gates and thus they won't bother you.
When you have escorted a person to a gate cross a line through their name and continue to the next. When all names are done the parchment be ready to take back. Head to the nearest human posting office and hand the parchment to the workers there. They are not human, but rather demons working with Reapers.
Every 100 years a Reaper is finally allowed to rest and thus must find a trustworthy human to take their place. When this human is found simply impale them with your Scythe. From then well, I'm sure you remember your first day too.

Your familiar is your guide. It is a spirit that teaches a human how to do the work of a Reaper. They take the forms of an animal, and can telepathically communicate with their Reaper.

Reapers have a spiritual connection with their Familiar, can change their human shape in various ways similar to their Familiar's form. (For example, a reaper with a Raven for a familiar could grow withs, or turn into the animal as well.)

Character Sheet:

Your sheet must include how your scythe appears when not in use [as said above, they turn into pieces of jewelry of some kind.]

This RP deals with the next group of people to become Reapers. Your initial post will deal with them being turned. I will post first to show you how this is achieved (it has been said above as well.)

As am I, zhill. I just haven't gotten a P/C set up yet for this thread, but I'm brainstorming. Oh boy, I can't wait to see where this is going!


Seems interesting. I pm'ed you an idea for a character, and am looking forward to see more of what you have in mind.
