"An insincere and evil friend is more to be feared than a wild beast; a wild beast may wound your body, but an evil friend will wound your mind." ~Unknown ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ IMPORTANT NOTE! Be sure to follow this thread for notifications of new posts and such so that no one gets behind! Do the same with the actual RP thread when it is created! ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Hello, friends... Tonight, we find ourselves on Main Street, inside of a city called Athánatos. To any average person, they may not know of this city, mostly because it's cut off from the rest of the world. It even has it's own government. But, as of late, the city has undergone a, shall we say, metamorphosis of sorts. One that would change the citizens of Athánatos until their very last breaths. Are you ready for the events that will unfold? Good. Now, follow me as we go down the streets and through the night into the world of madness... ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Welcome to the revived Athánatos (Meaning 'immortal' in greek) RP Sign-Ups. Those of you brave enough to proceed shall be thrust into a hostile world and story filled with mystery, surprises, conflict, and war. Here is a quick background of the history of the city of Athánatos, and its current trials. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In a dim and distant future, mankind has been altered after a reconstruction of the race. The Earth is now anew and its inhabitants are now vastly different. How did this occur? 60 years ago, In the small city known as Athánatos, beasts and humans lived alongside each other. Different variations of these beasts existed, such as vampires, werewolves, incubi, succubi, ghosts, wendigos, and so many more. It was like this for the longest time. During that time, scientists produced two prototype serums; one vaccine that would keep the humans immune from the deadly infections and virus of the beasts, and a serum to help humans unlock the hidden powers in their brains, gaining super-human abilities. The government had over 200,000 human participants. It was a monumental success for about 20 days... Until the of autumn that year. The vaccine had failed to fully work, as the human participants began to turn into beasts themselves. Unable to fully control themselves, they lashed out and terrorized Athánatos, and created a bloody massacre. The ones already born as beasts fought alongside and rebelled, the majority of them saying they will one day take control of the city, and eventually, the world. The humans, with their new super-human abilities, as well as some good beasts, fought for peace and power. They fought for almost 5 years straight, and the war spread all throughout the world, until both sides gave up. They regretted diminishing their races, and begin reconstruction of their city and races. Now in present times in Athánatos, reconstruction is complete. The city still combines beasts and super-humans, now know as Espers. However, the bias government gives full privacy to the Espers, while the beasts are heavily criticized, monitored, and segregated. The whole government is filled with corruption and lies. At the moment, the city is undergoing a large rebellion because of a string of murders that occurred. All of the murders involve the victims hearts torn out, and having black fangs lodged in their collarbones. Some rebels are on opposing sides, and some don't want to get involved at all. Who caused the murders, and could the rebellion fix or destroy the city? How will the government reacts. This story is still unwritten, and so is yours. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Now for character sheets!

It was dark, and the first quarter moon was hidden behind the grey clouds. Typical of a spring night in the city of Athánatos; an aged place cut off from the rest of the world due to its wide variety of citizens. However, what wasn't typical was the heavy rain that poured down. Thick and harsh where the drops that hit the many objects in the city. It hit the roofs of homes, stores, shops, restaurants, churches, elementary schools, high schools, and the university. The rain looked like it wouldn't stop. Most people stayed inside, or some relished to see the rare showers. So, there were not a lot of people out. Another reason folks weren't out was because of a terrible riot that occurred the afternoon before, leaving the majority of the city in shambles. The troublemakers were, of course, irritated esper and beast youth who rebelled over the lack of control and concern in a reoccurring string of murders. Murders came often, but not at the rate it was happening lately. So far, there are a total of five murders in twenty-four hours, and all of the victims ended up with the same fate. Their hearts were torn straight out of there chests, their eyes were missing, and they all had black canine-like fangs lodged in their collarbones. Police officials as well as government officials teamed up to help clean the mess from the riot as well as send the youth home. Some of them even went to investigate the possible cause of the murders. However, there was one youth that wasn't home just yet. A shy sonokinetic who goes by 'Joel'. He didn't participate in the riot. He just got caught in its crossfire. He was inside the infamous place known as, "The Chrysanthemum Sisters", A local fortune-telling house. The Chrysanthemum Sisters themselves were two aging women who's personalities still remained young. They went by Madame Linda, the younger, and Madame Cadence, the older. They are known for being spunky, sarcastic, and full of heart. They both possessed the ability of precognition, and use it to help others see hints of their fate. Right now, Linda was using the age-old method of tasseography, also known as tea leaf reading. "Hmm...", Linda hummed, staring into Joel's tea cup. "Oh, my..." "W-What? What is it ma'am?", Joel asked rather frantically. "Well, from these patterns, they tell me that... you should be wary of those you love, and that your city is going to become more dangerous in the days that come.", Linda said, looking at Joel in concern. The younger man just flashed her a look of utter fear, groaning in disappointment. He know it was something bad. "Oh, stop it, Linda!" Cadence cried before swiping the tea cup of of her sister's hand. "Stop scaring the child!" She promptly throw the tea cup over her shoulder in frustration. Joel sighed, slouching in his chair. "Well,", Joel started. "What else should I do?" "Never go out during a new or full moon.~", Linda replied. "Report anything you see to the police or detectives.", Cadence added. "Be careful, and don't die.~", Linda concluded with an awkward smile. Joel sighed again, looking down at the ground in despair. "Now, anything else you want to ask us?", the younger sister asked. "No.", Joel replied. "I guess not." He put on his jacket and scarf and took his umbrella. "Thanks for the tea." With that Joel headed out on his way back to his dorm. He would have gone back to Ellen's house, but that was just a bit too far away. This fortune-telling house wasn't all that far from the dorms of the university, so Joel figured he could get home safely enough. He had a silver crucifix in his pocket just in case, because it is speculated the murders were done by black dogs or vampires. Once outside the house, Joel quickly opened up his umbrella and held it over his head. "Danger? How could things possibly get any worse?" He muttered to himself as he started to walk. "Heh. Jeez... It's darker than I thought... But, the rain's nice, I guess..." He was starting to get scared, for no one know what could happen to you at night. Besides, the streets aren't safe anymore since there is a murderer on the loose. "Don't panic. I'm cool. I'm... cool..." He looked down at the ground in despair as he continued to walk, not paying attention to whatever might be in front of him.
