It is a growing city, many believe on it's way to being greater than Rome. They have grand buildings, a thriving population, and strong government. The only thing they don't have is a religion like the Greeks or Egyptians.
They decide to make one. One day all the people gather together and have a vote. By the end of the day, six people have risen above any human to become gods and goddesses. They are immortal, they have their own temples, and servants. The only thing they don't have is a king.
The people have voted. The only way for a king or queen to rise is if the best comes out. There will be a journey they all must go on facing challenges and battles while still fighting each other for the throne. The people will vote at the end to see who is the best.
You will be a god or goddess in this roleplay. When everyone decides it is time to end the roleplay, we will get to the final stage where the people vote for the king or queen of the gods. Here are the rules:
1) You get to chose what you are the god of, but first you must clear it with me first. Obviously nothing too huge or too small (like the god of grasshoppers). And no topping anyone else, like if someone is the god of rivers, you can't be the god of water.
2) No Mary Sues!!!!!!!!!
3) Every day the gods must get together at least once or else the people will not vote for you.
4) I will be controling the landscape, the people, and the monsters. I am the people's eyes too, anything that I read (except for thoughts) the people will know. At the end I will decide the people's final choice.
All normal roleplaying rules exist, if you post one liners, you will be asked to put more into it, unless a one liner is approaprite. No Mary Sues!!!! Please please please, no Mary Sues, it will make the roleplay no fun. There will be six gods/goddess, and I will not be one of them as I will control the landscape, people and monsters so no one can make themself too popular/strong. If you have a suggestion or request for the landscape or people or whatnot go ahead and suggest it :), have fun!
Sounds awesome, I'd love to join!! Should have my skellie up sometime tomorrow :)
Love to have you :) Don't forget to clear their power with me first. ;)
Really cool idea! Could I be a goddess of music? If that's too vauge I can change it
Name: Medrona Power: Goddess of Language, Stories, Poetry, Music (basically the Arts. She's kinda the Creative goddess) Symbol: the Quill Sacred animal: Cat Personality: always feels like there can be multiple solutions to problem. Not very ambitious, but wouldn't turn down to be Queen. She has a sweet temperament usually, accept when she is riddiculed. ((This character can have brothers and or sisters, I'm totally fine if that's what you put in your skellies))
Read: a goddess of music would be great!
Corin: I understand that you proably didn't see Read's post as you were making your skelli, but as Read is the goddess of music, can you either choose something else, or exclude music from her range of powers? That be great, and glad you joined :) For the skelli, just add what you are missing. :)
Name: (no last name is needed
God/Goddess of: (This is where you say what they are the god/goddess of and what that entails, for instance can the god of fire summon fire, create it, banish it from where it is, so on and so forth)
Apperance: (be slightly detailed, more than: blond hair, blue eyes, 5'8, and skinny)
Personality: (not required)
Bio: (who were they before they were a god, why they were chosen to become a god)
Goddess of Music: Play/sing anything by ear at a professional level. Ability to sense music at a large distance. Can give mental suggestions or inflict emotions to people or animals through music (though it isn't absolute, more powerful if victim doesn't know what is happening). At an extreme level, she can use music itself to inflict pain. Can create music without an instrument or using her voice, though it is less powerful and can't be used to inflict pain. Heightened senses and strength when there is music present (can't be her own).
Symbol: Heart containing a music note
Sacred animal: Mockingbird
Appearance: Slightly short, but thin, slightly muscular. Dirty blonde hair about chin length. Light brown, gold-flecked eyes. Nose is kind of big, not ugly, but noticeable. Thin eyebrows and lips, which would give her face a petite look if it wasn't for her nose.
Personality: Friendly and unwilling to fight, but when she does she is merciless. Isn't prideful, willing to seek help and admit she is wrong, but is intolerant of people who don't do the same. Sees all athletes as 'stuck up'. Judges people quickly and is slow to change her opinion of them.
Bio: Was a professional piano player before becoming a god, not famous but always said to be talented. Took piano lessons as a child, and later karate, as piano heightened her coordination and sense of rythmn. Was in a fencing club in high school, and continued the sport as a college student and later adult. Music was an integral part of her life, always playing in her home or work station. Chose to become a god to show the power of the arts and the emotional side of people, opposed to power through brute force and underhandedness.
((that ok? Tried not to make her power not so absolute, but since it's kinda non-combatant. And I thought I would have her fight with a sword, if that's ok, since again, you can't fight just by singing a song))
((Well, could you accutally mke her a little more powerful? After all she is a goddess :), and one thing i just wanted to make clear, the people chose her to become a goddess, she only choose to accept this role. Other than that she looks good :) ))
((ok, I'll change it to say she chose to accept the role. And as for making her more powerful, how about if she can inflict pain thought music? Or did you have something in mind?))
((Uhhh lol became really lazy with this, I'll just not play))
((Corin, are you sure? You can still play if you want, and if you change your mind later, there may still be a spot open.
Read, I was more thinking along the lines of senseing/hearing music around her, being able to inflict emotions through music, playing music where there is no instruments, or whatever else related to music. You could cause pain through music if you want too, and those are just examples, you don't have to use them but you can if you wish. :) Hope i'm not seeming too strick))
((Ok I'll play but I should do my skellie on the computer. I'm typing from my iPod and its pretty hard to do long typing passages))
((No Greek, you're not being strict at all! I'm glad youre giving me these ideas :) I'll add that sensing music and making music without intruments, but i think the inflict emotions is already on there...))
((Corin, that would be a good idea, it would make it easier to read :) Read, you don't have to add the things I'm suggesting, like I said they are suggestions :). Oh, guess I didn't see that you had already said inflicting emotions through music! Your skelli looks good now :) ))
((Is there gonna be god and goddess romance? [wink wink]. It would make for plot))
((Haha, yes there can be romance. Just don't forget that you are battleing them for the throne :) ))
((ok, thnx Greek!))
Could I be the God/Goddess of seasons? I can't decide which gender... There are two goddesses, so I was thinking of being a god, but I'm not sure! Anywho, just wanted to make sure this power is okay :) I'll decide on the gender when I make the skellie haha :)
((Ok another question. What if the person was fine with not being king or queen? Like they just like being by themselves or when they are with people, they just don't have much ambition. I might make to skellis, two very opposite characters just for a change, but one of them isn't very keen on leading the gods))
((god/Goddess of seasons sound good star :). Corin, that would be a twist to the plot line as the plot line basicaly is simply them trying to battle for the throne. but that would be okay, ease the tension in a very tense sistuation. :) ))
