Intro: in the Olympian Plane, the gods were attending to their own duties. With the mortals no longing needing their guidance, they looked to how they can keep busy within their own world, just as the other planes of gods have done. Everything had been peaceful since Olympus had closed its gates, till one fateful day. As Apollo was pulling the sun across the sky so the gods knew it was nighttime, the gates of Olympus swung open. From the gates a dark mist burst in and moved round Olympus like a snake after its victims. The gods fought against the mist but it was in vain. Hands from within the mist grabbed the gods and dragged them out of Olympus into the Space between Planes. They were bought to the main body of the mist which resembled a giant willow tree, it's branches reaching onto of other planes. They were dragged into the trunk of the tree and transformed into pure light which was shot down to where the trunk was growing...
Meanwhile on Earth...
Reports were coming in from all news channels round the world. A storm had developed which covered the whole world. New York, London, Hong Kong, Tokyo, all was darkened by the pitch black clouds. Thunder started sounding as lighting struck, the humans didn't know that with every strike of lighting was actually the gods from the other planes being teleported to this world, each and every one of them possessing a mortal whose body and lifestyle will suit their needs. Once every god had been teleported the menacing clouds disappeared. A whole day passed since that day.
Back at Olympus...
The mist returned but in smaller form. Spinning round like a tornado till a tall dark hooded figure holding a ocean blue orb in his right hand stood out from the raging clouds. "So this is the almighty Olympus? HA! Seen better on Earth when Atlantis was still standing." Said the figure, placing the orb in a pocket inside the long cloak. He walked up to the chair where Zeus sat and sat on it. Pretending to be the guy himself, throwing pretend lighting bolts, giving a approving nod afterwards. "Alright, down to business. Time to unleash our makers. Question is...how to do that...Maybe somewhere round here says how." with that he leapt from the throne and ransacked Olympus.
This is where your Story begins: Alright! now the back-story is written, this is where you come in. You play as one of the gods or goddesses that has been banished to the mortal world. How you wake up is the same, waking up after being asleep for a whole day. Where, is up to you. Everyone's goal is to do three things.
1. Find a way to gain your god status back so you can go back home. (Do it with team-work or go lone wolf, up to you.)
2. Find out who or what sent that dark cloud and deal with them. (how you deal with them, is up to you.)
3. Stop the return of The Hooded Figures "Makers".
Now I know what you're thinking: "Hmm, interesting, but BritishAmerican does that mean the now mortal gods will no longer have their special talent or would they still have them?" The answer to that my friend, is the latter, they'll still be good at what they were gods over, but in a more above-average human way. Like for example: Poseidon, He'll be good at swimming, but more at a skill ready for the 2012 Olympics, not swimming entire oceans like they were puddles.
"Okay, so do we only get to choose from the Greek gods?" Nope, Below will be a list of the gods you get to play for your convenience, but sadly not every single god, as the list was WAY too big. There was more gods then I thought <_<.
"Well, okay, we got the character basis down, how do we play?" Well you play like the standard Roleplay, if you want to do an action, you simply type what your character does in as much detail as you like, I simply ask not to do too much, want to give others a chance.
"Well, you got the playable characters down, what about NPC's? or the main villain?" Well, that's why I'm here. I'll be playing the main NPCs, like shop owners or ones that'll advance plot, along with the main villain and any enemy that shows up.
"Okay enough questions, give us what we really want." Oh, the Profile Skelly? Here you go:
Mortal Name: Mortal Age: God Name: Above-Average Skill: (I'm leaving this up to you, so be creative) Mortal Background: Mortal Appearance: (Write it our or show an Image, your choice) Destined Weapon: (You won't start out with these, you'll come across this during the first battle) Personality: (Now mortal, you have mortal feelings, so what are you like)
"Hey, while reading through your Skelly, it mentioned first battle. Lolwut?" Ah yes, battles. You seem our Hooded friend, will be sending down some creatures from mythology which will also be in human form. Each player will be alerted by PM and a Event warning will be posted. Just to make sure everyone knows about it. The first battle is where you will get your weapon, please be creative to how you find it. We want this interesting, no? The first battle will be when everyone gets together or if I think the game is slowing down a bit and needs a kick-start. After that, it'll be unpredictable but reasonable.
"Hey, where's the list of the gods you mentioned?" Right...
And that should be it. The future of Immortals are up to you. If you're interested in joining, just use the skelly and pm me or if you just want to ask a question. There are a few rules though before we begin:
1. No God-modding, you're mortal now.
2. No Accusing people of breaking the rules without proper reason or proof that they did. That's just mean and pointless.
3. Be polite to fellow players, they're human too.
4. No controlling other players characters, I don't care how much you can play like them, they aren't yours.
5. Enjoy yourselves. This is a game afterall, and with the lists, it's going to be a big one.
Any rule breaking will result in Ban from the game and you're character will be under "Waiting for Replacement." You get three chances unless you're being a right numpty.
One last thing: Battle Systems. You roll two 6-sided dice, the total is how much damage you do. when I post what you'll be fighting, I'll post how much HP it has, I'll be reasonable as well.
