The Demon Fanatic
|It is only through labor and painful effort, by grim energy and resolute courage, that we move on to better things.|
July, 1881. It has been months since the return of most of the members of the Beaumont mission. Their efforts to rescue the captured Valeria Witlock were successful. However, they were unable to recover any of the artifacts stolen by Sazak, Icon of Vainglory, during the events on Grimtham Isle in 1877. During their escape, however, they were able to slay two icons: Ralvas, the Icon of Pride, and Azgon, the Icon of Wrath. They also disrupted the way of things in the Abyss, carving a bloody path across its capital territories in the hunt for Valeria and the artifacts. Allowing Tariun, leader of the Abyss's rebellion against the tyrannical Demon King Taranoch, to make major headway in her war for the throne.
However, things have grown far worse since their return. A massive war between the nations of the mortal realm has begun, spurred by the Icons in an attempt to disrupt the realm and make it easy for Taranoch's forces to invade and conquer. The binding holding his legions in the Abyss has been broken, and already demons have begun appearing across the realm. Taranoch returns to the mortal realm, in an attempt to bring about a second Age of Darkness.
Yet one of his own Icons plots against him, with the assistance of his most trusted advisor. Sazak, the very Icon whom set all of this in motion, absorbed the godly power from Adona's ring before Taranoch destroyed it. He schemes ever more, planning to soon overthrow Taranoch and claim it all for himself. To do that, however, he must gather up the remaining artifacts, under the guise of fetching them for Taranoch to keep them out of the hands of Adona and his fellow gods and goddesses.
Adona, meanwhile, has gathered a sizable group to combat the Icons. Some are heroes, while others are former villains. There are even some just caught in the thick of it all, chosen for greatness. They all must seek out the lost artifacts, and stop Taranoch and Sazak before its too late. The fate of all the realms hangs in the balance.
This RP is currently a partially closed RP. We are not actively recruiting, but if you are interested in it, shoot me a message! I'll see what I can do regarding working you in, if you really want to join!
As GM, I control various NPCs in the story, but some may be controlled by players. All events will be under my direction. Feel free to throw ideas at your fellow players. I want you guys to have fun!
1. Please, be nice.
2. No power or metagaming. You have a lot of freedom and slack, but ultimately rolls determine if things happen.
3. Out of Character (OOC) chat should be in double parentheses, ((so it will look like this when you post OOC)).
4. If you go inactive or drop, your character(s) will be under my control (and may potentially die.) If you let me know you're going to be inactive for a while and can pick back up later, I'll look after your character till you return.
5. This is primarily a PvE game, but PvP can still potentially happen if its agreed upon by both parties and run by me.
6. As GM, I'm god. New rules can be implemented on the fly.

(If a player drops out, their character will be controlled by me and listed here as dropped. List is currently WiP, but listed players are confirmed.)
