Spooky Ghosts/Dumb Demons/Heroin Hunters

Introduction

Among the Stars (title not finalized)

"You've been asleep a long time, Traveler."

Four kingdoms based on/divided by Chinese constellations:

Azure Dragon of the East

Black Tortoise of the North

White Tiger of the West

Vermilion Bird of the South

Title: The Forest
Theme: Brick By Boring Brick by Paramore, Heart of Gold by James IV, Fairy Tale (Alexander Rybak)
Inspo: Grimmoire (LenGe), IT (Stephen King), Brick By Boring Brick (Paramore), Bridge to Terabithia (Katherine Paterson)

Once upon a time six children stepped through a door decorated with sprawling vines and blooming lilies, carved into the largest tree known to man. The world they crossed over to was no different: a flat grassland with sparse trees and a cloudy sky. Yet the banality didn't faze them. They erected castles from dirt, rode horses made of hollowed logs, and forged their weapons with sticks and rope. And eventually their wishes manifested. Castles rose from the ground, the skies sparkled, and all around them new beings appeared. Witches, trolls, fairies, giants, and even dragons roared to life, dispersing to every stretch of forest.

So they split their sanctuary into six domains, each denoted by their Animus, the desire within their hearts. Whether it was an object, person, or concept, they all chose something they resonated with and built their territory in kind. At the heart of the world was (Name of The Leader) who served as king of the land dubbed Dissidum for the word etched on the door. Unfortunately, the existence of their heroes also meant the existence of villains. Phantasms manifested from the depths of their hearts and fed off the fears of Dissidum's rulers. They whispered in the children's ears, sowing discord among their group.

The children waged war against one another, etching ley lines into Dissidum's landscape. What used to be playful fights devolved into battle for no reason other than a forgotten conflict. Blood covered the lands, nourishing the paranoia festering beneath Dissidium’s surface and with it, the Phantasms. They evolved from mere ghosts to demons.

Everything came to head when (Leader’s sister) asked to meet at the World Tree. Through all the conflict she remained neutral, but Dissidium’s destruction was too much for her to bear. She begged her friends to reach an armistice and unite against the growing threat of the Phantasms; however, nobody would concede. Taking matters into her own hands, she journeyed to the Abyss to defeat the evil once and for all.

(Leader's sister) "dies" in the world and ends up in a coma IRL, supposedly from falling and hitting her head on a rock. Everyone leaves except for (The Leader) who has been searching for a way to wake her up, to keep Dissidum alive. They realize that they've been missing for roughly a week and all the parents are relieved to find them alive. Everyone else moves on with their lives, slowly forgetting about the world they once played in. Most leave town or whatever.

Twenty years later they come back per (The Leader)'s request for a reunion. The forest has been fenced off and is slated to be torn and turned into a mall in an effort to modernize the town. As soon as they arrive, everyone's memories of Dissidum come back to them. According to (The Leader), children have gone missing and turned up dead or in coma after playing in the forest. (The Leader) theorizes that they need to go back to the other world to put an end to the Demon or whatever and bring back the missing children?

World building Information:
Domain: A territory erected in the image of its ruler. Though each area varies depending on its ruler, they all share one trait: The World Tree. In order to shape their domain, a ruler must approach the World Tree located in the center of Dissidium and ask for its blessing.
Animus: Literally meaning "soul", the Animus is a manifestation of a human's deepest desire. It's what allows them to speak to their World Tree and access the powers associated with whatever they resonate with. Animus users are denoted with a To date, only the children who entered Anima have an Animus.
The Abyss: A deep, unexplored pit that is said to be the birthplace of Phantasms.
Phantasms: These are corporeal spirits that feed off of fear and corrupted desire. Aside from their infectious bites and scratches, they often sow distrust and malcontent within the hearts of Anima's citizens. Though young phantasms can be destroyed with magic and sharpened weaponry, older ones possess abilities akin to an Animus. It is not uncommon for phantasms to cannibalize one another to gain power.

Toggle Rules

1. dO Not STEAL mY CODE
2. No fun allowed
3. Please type at least 1200 to -1000 words per post. IF U are LITerate you should be able to do this. Use writing techniques such as repetition, flashbacks, stream of consciousness, and talking about appearance.
4. Liquid
5. HOmance EVERYONE! We have a reltions section for a reason! This is highschool with hormonal teenagers. They should be blushing and getting red and not making eye contact when their best friend makes an inappropriate joke about them.
6. Make your post pretty! I LOVE images and banners. They really break up the motony of profile rading.
7. Post often, even if everyone else hasn't. If you get left behind that's ur fault. I'll say I'm going to updat the plot thread every week but I won't.
8. Be literate.
9. Apply using the 15 passwords on the front page.

10. Pls do not steal

Actual Rules:
1. No godmodding. I understand that some powers may involve a level of godmodding, but make sure it doesn't crossover into puppetry/omnipotence. This a collaborative roleplay which means any actions need to be agreed upon by the players involved. If you aren't sure, then ask!

2. Keep all drama in character. I want this to be a good experience for everyone and if there any disputes, then please resolve them through DMs or talk to me if you cannot come to an agreement.

3. Handle mature themes with grace. This roleplay will have violence, crude language, and potentially sexual elements so I ask that you be cautious in your writing. Adhere to RPG guidelines, have sex scenes fade to black, and be mindful of potentially triggering material. If you (or anyone) feels uncomfortable with certain types of content then DM me and we can work around it (or eliminate it if need be).

4. Use non-animated/drawn faceclaims. I will not set a precise age limit for faceclaims, but Umbrella Academy members (minding special circumstances) are all physically 24 years old. Commission Agents must be at least 18 years old. If you wish for something non-human (such as the case with AJ Carmichael), let me know and we can work something out. Additionally, please have your faceclaim's ethnicity match your character's! I'll allow some flexibility for white/European characters but I'm going to decline say, a Portuguese FC for a Mestizo character.

5. You may use your own character sheet. I don't really care too much as long as it includes: character name, age, gender, role, personality/bio (this can be combined), power/skills (if applicable), and at least one picture of themself. Everything else is up to you!

6. Be mindful your character's ranking when choosing a power. The Monocle ranked everyone each student based on their potential and usefulness (rather than strength) so your character's power should reflect that. For example: super strength has more applications than astral projection so a character with super strength would be labeled a higher number than the person with astral projection.

7. There is a soft gender ratio. I don't need there to be exactly the same numbers of every gender; however, I will put a cap if I see too many reservations of one gender over another.

8. Don't leave us hanging! If you need to leave for an extended period of time then please let me know so I can accommodate your absence.

9. Put your application in the OOC thread. Please post your character's name, age, gender, power (if applicable), and a picture/name of their FC. Once you are accepted, you have 2 days to post a WIP (it can be a blank CS or some general ideas) and a 1.5 weeks to finish. If you need an extension, DM me. Additionally, if multiple people apply for the same slot, I will give them a week to finish their profiles and choose the best concept out of all of them.

10. Reservations are not first come-first serve!
