Titans Rising

Titans Rising

0 INK

Long ago, the Titans were defeated by the Olympians and they ruled over the earth. However, in modern times, Kronos, the Titan Lord, is rising again. Not having the power to reenter the world as gods, they instead are now reincarnated as mortals.

823 readers have visited Titans Rising since almostinsane created it.

Introduction

Introduction

Long ago, the Olympians overthrew the Titan Lord Kronos and the rest of the Titans because of his tyranny and took their place as the gods of Ancient Greece, throwing Kronos and the other Titans into Tartarus. Kronos' sons: Zeus, Poseidon, and Hades drew lots to divide the universe between them and the age of gods and heroes began as the Age of Gods and Heroes began. Zeus had many children, most of whom took their place on the Olympian Council and the gods interacted with mankind freely. But the gods were flawed and would often get into disagreements with one another and with mortal kings and heroes. Often, mortal heroes and demigods were caught between the Olympians. Still, it was a time of unparalleled prosperity for the Olympians and the world, though many grudges were formed and few were forgiven. It came to a point where the gods agreed to separate themselves from the world.

Eventually, the mortals forgot about the gods. They faded into myth and legend and, for the most part, the gods were happy with the bliss of Olympus and other places where mortals are unable to reach, except for Hades, of course, who was stuck with the Underworld and was never able to spend much time on Olympus or on earth anyway. However, as the centuries passed, Kronos, who had been chopped up into pieces before being thrown into Tartarus, slowly regained his power along with the rest of the Titans. The gods' powers had waned, however, and they were unable to muster the power to ensure Kronos and the others did not escape Tartarus. Knowing that Kronos would target Earth, but knowing they would be unable to maintain their divine forms to stay on earth long enough to defeat Kronos again, the gods, Olympian and minor, chose to reincarnate themselves as mortal humans along with a few legendary mortal heroes/demigods.

Reborn into ordinary families, the gods and heroes have no knowledge of their previous lives and their powers remained dormant for the most part save for a few minor occasions. However, their memories and powers are now resurfacing and the centaur, Chiron, the immortal trainer of heroes, invited them to an University he founded for the purpose of finding them and revealing to them their identity. But, can these mortal gods and heroes deal with the memories of thousands year old gods and the past issues they had with one another to defeat Kronos? Can the heroes of legend deal with memories of their too-often tragic lives? And how many will Kronos attempt to corrupt to his side?

Delphi University

Image

Recently founded and built around an old Colonial mansion in about 25 miles from New York City, Delphi University has quickly gained a reputation for one of the best small colleges to emerge in the last couple decades. It is prestigious and privately owned and funded by the Dean of the school who behaves in the manner of an experienced educated. It rarely offers scholarships and this year, the Dean has surprisingly offered a great number to a group of students who may or may not have merited it. Still, people generally think that Dean Chiron Brunner knows what he is doing.

Toggle Rules

1. Be Creative. I want to know that you put some effort and thought in your character

2. Be respectful of others. That includes myself, my GM MaliceInWonderland, and others. Feel free to have your characters hate each other, but respect people in real life.

3. Every Olympian must be taken before we start; that means I may ask people to take any that are left by the time we want to start.

4. There are no character limits. However, you are responsible for playing every character you take.

5. Be committed. If you are going to be gone for a period of time, then let us know in the OOC thread. I am sure we can come to an arrangement so the roleplay isn't slowed.

6. No one-liners. Post should be at least 2-3 paragraphs long, if not longer.

7. Drama and romance is allowed and encouraged, but do not exceed the rules of roleplaygateway. Sex scenes, for example, should fade to black. If you want to continue, there are always PMs.

8. Cursing is allowed, but it shouldn't distract people from the content of your posts. Basically, don't have every other words be a curse word.

9. No go-modding. When fighting, your attacks should never automatically land on another character. Likewise, you shouldn't be able to control others' characters without their permission.

10. Have fun.

Most recent OOC posts in Titans Rising

Re: Titans Rising

I resposted. Please reserve/post your characters within 24 hours. If they are not reserved in the OOC or posted, I will have to open those spots: www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/gods-r ... ans-rising

Re: Titans Rising

Alright. Then I shall repost it tomorrow if no one takes the open spots. Sorry for being slow. I want to give it time before reposting since I hate feeling like a spammer.

Good to see you, sourdough. :)

Re: Titans Rising

I'm still here! Late reaction...

Re: Titans Rising

It's not. You can repost. I've done it before.

Re: Titans Rising

I'm thinking of reposting this roleplay to attract more people to take the roles that are left so we can start. Or is this against the rules of the site?

Re: Titans Rising

Yes, very much for the time being. Just hope it starts soon! :D

Re: Titans Rising

I definitely am ^^

Re: Titans Rising

Is everyone still interested?

Re: Titans Rising

I'm glad to see you join. :)

If we're unable to get more roleplayers and get at least Kronos and the remaining Olympians claimed, I think I will repost this to attract more interest, with your permission so I can reserve characters beforehand for those who would join that. Hopefully, though, more people will join this one before I have to take that step.

We need, before we start:

Demeter
Dionysus
Hermes
Hephaestus

And for Titans

Kronos.

Re: Titans Rising

Saw your post in the lounge.

Muah... muahaha.... MUAHAHAHAH! (that's crazy-talk for "can I reserve Prometheus, please?" ^^) I'll have a character sheet in in a few hours. I have some surprisingly morally/ethically bankrupt things in mind for this guy <_<

I'd also love to play more than one Titan if necessary.

Re: Titans Rising

I'd been hoping that at least one Titan and the rest of the Olympians would be taken. Not really getting anyone else interested joining, though. :(

Anyone know someone who might be interested? Or maybe can take more ourselves.

Also, sorry for not being on. Depression hit me hard. I might need to get back on my meds, which is kind of pathetic as I'd hoped I would be able to stand on my own by now.

But that's real life. Sorry for making anyone uncomfortable with that.

Re: Titans Rising

When can we start?

Re: Titans Rising

Sure thing boss :-)

Re: Titans Rising

I'm almost done with both my characters, i just need to think up a History for both. xD

Re: Titans Rising

Alright, they look good so far, Malice and Damioa. Just make sure to finish them soon. :)

Re: Titans Rising

Okay. I added my character for Apollo. Hope you like him.

Re: Titans Rising

YAY! I have My Twin!

Re: Titans Rising

Hello. Just wanting to know if I could play apollo?

Re: Titans Rising

That sounds good. I also need at least a few of the Titans taken (particularly Kronos and Prometheus) and the rest of the Olympians taken before I start. I think I'll post in the roleplayers wanted forum to get more people to join.
