Welcome to Abyss

Welcome to Abyss

0 INK

Abyss is an underground city founded by a man they call The Grandfather. The Grandfather once predicted that 7 Angels will come from the World Above and save Abyss from great destruction. (Inspired by the BioShock series)

939 readers have visited Welcome to Abyss since ponerj created it.

Introduction

Image
Image


Abyss is a city under the ground, only accessible though a hidden abandoned mine shaft in the Rocky Mountains. Abyss is a mystery to the rest of the world; nobody knows of its existence. Seven people are about to come upon Abyss, learn the secrets of the city, and discover their destiny.

(In the RP the characters you play are going to start off knowing nothing about the city)

Image
Image


The Ring of Fire is giant pit in the ground. It is said to have mystical powers and it powers the entire city. The people of Abyss worship it like a god; they sometimes send scarifies down into it.

Image

Golden Rings that were said to have been forged from the Ring of Fire. They hold mystic powers, and give the wearer a magical ability. There are 14 in existence. 7 are owned by specific people of power in Abyss, and 7 await the seven angels that suppose to defend the Abyss from a great catastrophe.

The most powerful people in Abyss and the main villains of the RP.
(I will post them as I create them.)
The Grandfather - Founder/Ruler of Abyss - Ring: Controls the Ring of Fire and can give and take away power to sectors of the city.
Ester Welgo - Chief of The Grandfather's Guard - Ring: Short term invisibility
Albert Mann - Head Priest - Ring: Controls Spiders

Seven normal people from the World Above who stumble upon Abyss after a tragic plane crash that was heading to California from New York.

(These are the characters the players will be creating. I will post them as they are created.)
Flynn Eddington - Ring: Undecided
Christa Rosenfeld - Ring: Manipulates Electricity
Lyna Tyla - Ring: Ability to hear thoughts and emotions
Alex Rios - Ring: Gravity Manipulation

(I don't really care how you organize your character sheet or what you add, but here are just the requirement. Feel free to add more if you like.)
Name:
Age: (I would prefer to have more adults, 21 and up, than teenagers, we have enough children.)
Appearance: (Either in picture or description or both. If pic, please use either anime or drawings, no real life.)
Occupation:
Brief History: (At least tell why you are on that plane, but more then that is preferred.)
Ring Power: (Well not be in effect until you obtained your ring, but you can go ahead and decided what the power will be)


Image


- Only Seven Angels are playable. All other character, the residents of Abyss, will be played by me.
- Only one power per person, and it can't be overpowered.
- Be nice OOC
- Please post once a week at least.
- I will not be taking reservations. It's first come first serve.
- Keep in mind: I like reveal things in RP, which is why the information here is kind of blunt. I'm trying to keep this main page as simple as possible, so that I can keep everything mysterious.

Re: Welcome to Abyss

I'm still here, checking regularly. As for the host I am unsure. It's been nearly a week since he was last online... :/

Re: Welcome to Abyss

where is everyone?
and the host? :|

Re: Welcome to Abyss

I completely forgot about this xDD

Re: Welcome to Abyss

I'll make another Angel. :P

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Alright then me and Atlas seem more then willing so that means one thing. In that case.... Let's see who makes the Seventh Angel First Atlas!

Re: Welcome to Abyss

I think somebody is going to have to make another character. That would ok. I haven't gotten anybody else.

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Neither would I if it helps get the ball rolling that much quicker. But we'll just see who gets the seventh first eh?

Re: Welcome to Abyss

I wouldn't mind making another character :v

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Yea... I'm kind of waiting for another person to create a character. I'm to get started on Friday.

Anyways, I still have more characters to make as well. I'll get to them tomorrow.

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Hopefully someone jumps in as quickly as possible. I'm dying for this to start already.

Re: Welcome to Abyss

I'm wondering the same thing but I have the distinct feeling it's when all 7 angels are present and accounted for the Flight. We got six, so hopefully soon as the seventh is accounted for. So excited!

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Around what time is this going to kick off?

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Well, intriguing observation on that front. Unsure if that'll happen but it could be possible. And when it comes with his ancestral Bounty Hunting name (Black XII), you never know. ;)

Re: Welcome to Abyss

inb4 some crazy subplot where Lyna's ability allows her to verbally give away the fact that Christa is a terrorist wherein she ends up in a scuffle with Jonathan because of their conflicting ideals :o

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Ring drawbacks... Kind of... I guess... Anything that gives immediate power can corrupt a person's mind, I believe. Imagine feeling completely powerless, then just by putting on one ring you have the power of the supernatural. And a person can gain more than one ring and have more than one power. Like after you are to defeat one the villains you can take there ring and use it with your own. It's perfectly understandable if someone was to become obsessed with gaining all the rings and getting all the power.
But as for drawbacks with the rings themselves... not really.

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Intriguing story and interesting concept of the rings. Must ask one small question before I "forge" (hehe get it?) my character. Do any of the rings have a drawback? Just asking cause when it comes with rings, ( Especially One Ring in particular...>.>) best to check first before I decide on the Ring's power.

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Shooting Fire, Water, Electricity, or anything like that.
Ability to move objects
Creates a shield
Stops time for a short while
Just a few stuff that came off the top of my head...

I would stay away from stuff like:
Mind Control
Conjuring up items and weapons out of thin air
Transforming

Re: Welcome to Abyss

Give an example of acceptable powers from a Ring of Power

Re: Welcome to Abyss

You can expect a CS in from me by tonight for that 13 or younger role, c: Hopefully he'll be what you're looking for.
