What if Gods existed? Amongst us humans? Hidden in the shadows. What if they became endangered? What if you had the chance to save one?

Introduction

Gods.
Image


Such a controversial topic.
Some people are monotheistic, others polytheistic. And who's to say who's right?

What if they exist? What if they don't?
Would it really matter?







2025.
Tokyo, Japan.


Image

Technology is man's greatest tool, friend and God.

People are more concerned with their selfish desires than the well being of one another, or the planet.




"Hey Ryuu!
Come check out this video!
These guys claim they caught a f*@#ing 'goddess'!! Hahahahaha!
Oh man, we gotta watch this!"




Image




Meet the Gods.
They are many on this planet. Many in this galaxy. Many in this universe.

They are our creators, our guardians or protectors.
They live among us in plain sight, keeping an eye on us; making sure we don't kill ourselves off. At least not too soon.
But some how, they've been found out.
And they are slowly being hunted down and captured.



And now, we meet you.

Image




You and several others have stumbled upon videos made by the organization, "Truth.", claiming that they had captured Gods and Goddesses.
In these videos, there are single individuals tied up, blindfolded and bound to chairs, poles, beds, etc.
The group claims that they are going 'prove' these Gods' existences by their own means. Some resort to interrogations, some subject their victims to different 'environmental' situations to see how they react. Some resort to torture.

Unfortunately, society hardly even blinks an eye at this.
Some are amused.
Some turn their heads.

Some though, like you, take a stand.




Now, not all Gods have been captured.
And not all who have been captured are Gods.

This 'organization' is not the wisest, but they certainly are the cruelest.


The Gods that do remain out there want revenge.
The Gods who have been captured want freedom.

And you...you just happen to glimpse something familiar in the video you've just seen. Maybe enough to pinpoint a location. Maybe enough to track down where this poor tortured soul may be kept hostage.
Maybe enough for you to save a life.

Image










There a many roles to play in this.
Some major. Some minor.
Don't feel limited or obligated to do just one or another.
But don't start taking over the scene, either.


Gods.-Each is a creator or ruler of something.
Whether it be an element, an emotion, a physical or mental ability; they all excel at one thing.
That's not to say they can't do more.
But be realistic in their abilities.

God's did not make these planets, beings; universe on their own. They did require one another's help.


Normal Citizens.-You may be that kid that sits in the back of class or that stockbroker who doesn't have the time to give the time of day.
Whoever you are, you have decided to watch that video. And it has most certainly evoked some sort of emotion from you.
Will you try and save the hostages? Will you try and put an end to this terrorizing group? Who's to say.


Normal Hostages.-I am expecting some of these. Whether they keep a major role or not, that's up to you.
But they do have lives, families, goals. And they are now aware of these 'Gods'.
Will they be freed? Will they die?
And if they do live, will they go on with their lives? Will they search for these Gods? Will they try to save them or will they try and expose them?


"Truth."-These people are cruel and relentless. Their leader has learned of the existence of Gods and plans on exploiting them for their powers to assist in his reign and takeover or to annihilate them.
Some are smarter and more clever about their ways, some are a bit....dumb.
Regardless of their intelligence and methods, one thing is clear-They will find these Gods. They will capture them. And they will get what they want out of them or they will kill them. Slowly.

Toggle Rules

Alright.
Most of you know how this goes.

  • No godmodding. Just takes the fun out of everything.
  • No 'Mary-Sues'. Try and be real. In a situation? How would you handle it in real life? Try and be 'someone'. Not just another name and face that washes away.
  • Try and have fun. Socialize, be imaginative, communicate with the rest of us.
    Think something can be fixed or done better? Tell me in OOC! I want your input!! This is OUR story!
  • I understand that you have a life. Trust me, I DO. Just try and say something, to someone, in OOC-whatever, if you're going to be MIA for a while.
  • There is violence in this Roleplay. And I'm sure there will be romance. I just don't want everyone 'doing it' all over the place. Or raping each other and tearing each other to gory shreds every 5 seconds.

Any of issues, ask me in OOC or PM me!
I'm your friend, teammate and hostess. Not your mother, principal or a cop. I promise we can talk. =]

Beaten and down on his luck Nate had to do something worse than anything he's ever done. He had to become a god killer. To Save his little brother he decided to do anything. It was raining. The rain felt like rocks beating at him.Cursing him for his betrayal. A God. No. Demi-God now. Becoming a God killer. Acting as a dog for the human scum. The same scum he hated with everything in his heart. He walked away from the payphone into the darkness of the night. Ready to do what he had to do.

Most recent OOC posts in The Video.

Re: The Video.

Yeah, that was why I was hoping the GM had responded. We could have asked for permission to use it or something.

Re: The Video.

So I guess the GM hasn't been on in 4 days after the making of this roleplay? Shame... It died before it even began.

@sourdough I hope we could recreate this RP, or at least a similar plot to this. It's just that I'm cautious as to whether or not we are allowed to.

Re: The Video.

Was anyone able to get ahold of the GM? Maybe we could just recreate the RP so everyone could get accepted and we could start.

Re: The Video.

My character hasn't been accepted so I don't know how this will work for me... :(

Re: The Video.

Well, I could make a post from Akira's POV if you guys want. Considering who he is, it could easily set the scene since he can watch over everyone. Then again, I'd prefer to keep Akira hidden for now, so...

Darn.

Re: The Video.

Okay I give up on waiting officially now haha. Unless someone would like to step in personally as GM, I'd suggest we come up with a good start to this. :)

Thoughts anyone?

Re: The Video.

Same here :D
I'm really hoping to have this thing started, I'm quite excited for it actually

Re: The Video.

I agree, I really want to rp this

Re: The Video.

Agreed, this is too good to stop before its even started.

Re: The Video.

I'd be happy to go ahead and create it ourselves if she doesn't show up.

Re: The Video.

If she's not back on sometime this week do we wanna just start up? I'll send a PM to see what's up. If she's bored of it, I'll see if I can't get GM permission.

Re: The Video.

Not sure. The GM hasn't been online for about a week, I'd wager either they've been busy or have lost interest.

Re: The Video.

So what's going on guys? Are we starting soon? I hope you aren't like waiting on my character to start; I've been pretty busy and am still working on him. I also like to see the direction the RP is going a little bit before I write my history and commit myself to a certain idea to make sure it jives well in context. Just wondering when things are gonna pick up :)

Re: The Video.

@XShishioX Sure we can. Thanks for the Advice. And if you could everyone, I'd like input on my character. And of course yours too. GM. I'll try to make him to your acceptance.

Re: The Video.

Alrighty, now that that's over, next time, your best bet with just about anything here on RPG is to ask. You wanna make a topic in the OOC? Ask. You wanna make a post before everyone else has? Ask. You wanna make sure your character is ok? Ask. It's like dating someone really. There's no saavy, there's no pretended suaveness, just be honest and communicable. That's it dude. So, now that this is behind us, we're moving on.

@Zody, I'm more of a dog/full grown tiger person, but hey, everyone's got their preferences.

@Damioa, things for next time: 1) When making a character ALWAYS perfectly describe your character's limits, strengths, and even weaknesses. This will prevent possible OP status. 2) Always chat with your GM to make sure what you've done is ok. This includes pretty much everything you could possibly think of. Not only does it make you look considerate, if doesn't take much, and it gives the GM everything they need to know/do about your character. Even a simple, "Hey, my charrie's up. If there's anything you'd like me to change just lemme know." In the OOC is better than nothing. 3) it's more of a personal mark of aptitude for me, but I don't make characters with nothing but good in their power sheets. They've always got a relatively easily exploitable weakness and a few personality quirks that provide players who take the stealth/interaction route a more natural way of dealing with me. Not only does this nerf the awesome powers I've given myself, it makes a more balanced and interesting character. In summation, be perfectly clear with everything you intend to do, except maybe some minor tricks your power allows you to do. For example, an earth manipulator could push himself into the air with basic earth manipulation, giving him a massive jump. Secondly, always ask about anything you intend to do. This doesn't have to be public forum, it could be a personal message or just using our great new chat system. Finally, make balanced, useable characters. That's all for now. Hopefully these tricks can prevent such nastiness for you in the future. Though I can't say that our GM will be perfectly happy with this, I have forgiven your mistakes. We were all new once. :) I hope we can be great friends.

Re: The Video.

I give my sincerest apologies to the GM and all who are going to be active in this RP. I hope you guys can forgive me.

Re: The Video.

Sorry. I'm new to the whole role-playing thing. So I didn't know. Please accept my humble apologies. Man I'm so embarrassed. And Nate can only control a portion of each element since his mother took most of his power away. He still needs help to capture gods.

Re: The Video.

I'm finally back from my weekend, woohooo! Except now School's starting up so I won't be on that much...

Damioa. I dislike people like you. Making a character and then starting off another person's roleplay without their permission, and you did it with a post that didn't allow any of us other rpers to do anything, at that. I've GM'd roleplays on and off of this site, and nothing annoys me more than an inconsiderate person who forces my games into action before it's fully ready to go. You making a post is like me walking into your house and dragging you out of your bed in the middle of your sleep. Not cool, is it? On another note, is Nate even accepted yet? I can't see if he is, so I have no idea if it's my computer or he just hasn't been accepted yet. If he hasn't, then why post? At least let the GM look him over before you do anything.

Nate can control practically all of the elements, meaning that he's pretty powerful, right? How many other Gods do you think could counter a Demi-God who can control everything around them? And it's not just that, but you say he had another Major power. Are you saying he was even stronger than he is right now? That's like me turning around and giving Akira the power to make people's limbs explode. And what's this? You made a Group for 'TRUTH'? Who gave you permission to do that? Who turned around, handed you the reigns and said 'Do this stuff'? Nobody, as far as I know.

So before you decide to jump into a roleplay, post a bunch of posts that nobody can reply to with a character who might not even be accepted yet, technically take over the GM's role by making a group for the main Antagonists, who's leader is remaining undefined for now, and then make your character -fairly- overpowered, you should've made sure you looked at the needs of others, and the things the GM wants/likes.

I honestly don't see any reason for doing the things you've done, Damioa. I'm not trying to be mean, but I was just a tad annoyed. Also, I'd like to thank Shishio for pointing these out.

I like Cats.

Re: The Video.

Umm, excuse me Mr. Damioa, but it is common practice, as well as good manners, to allow a roleplay's GM to make the first post once all the characters have been submitted and the GM feels that the roleplay will be able to start in such a manner as to be both productive and fulfilling. So, exactly what do you think you're doing? Not only is that incredibly rude, but your post had nothing in it for others to go on so as to be both a successful and appealing beginning point. Frankly speaking, are you aware of how horrible an idea that was, or were you on drugs? Normally I'm not so curt, however, you have been extremely rude.
