In a desperate attempt to regain their paradise, a small group of both demons and angels band together to commence their journey into the Yggdrasil of Utgard, Asgard, and Midgard. Even the near-legendary Akaiito Kagamiya continues to assist even after his own death. Tensions rise in the groups however as they transverse to the center of the trees, but they must do whatever it takes to finally end the curse of the Phantasms, Serena Seraphina, and Dieter Amsel once and for all.
A silent war unknown to many, waged on for a thousand years... Or perhaps even more.
Their journeys finally coming to fruition, the three parties have finally made their way to the center of the world trees... However what they see is a shock to them all.
And it seems of the seven princes of Hell one was never sealed in the world trees to begin with.
"They often say that Gluttony is an extension of Lucifer's hunger for power... In the end they're essentially one in the same to most."
The rules are the same as the first and second arcs of this series. NPCs remain the same as the second arc.
Second arc OOC info
One hundred years have passed since the end of the Three Hundred Year war.
With the efforts of Akaiito Kagamiya and Sanzuru of the sin family Utgard and Asgard both went under a huge technological shift. Cities grew, new towns were born, and new jobs came as the demand for them rose. Soon enough Chokma underwent heavy changes itself, both cultural and industrial.
As the demons of the country of Banem explore the world more across the seas and in the skies with more advanced airships (courtesy of Asgard) businesses stretched out internationally and finally, after so many long years. One being a chain of restaurants called The Red Papaya.
Trains stretch out across the continent, underneath the great cities subways take passengers to where they want to go quickly... The world of Utgard is turning more and more like what the fabled land of Midgard once was but with magic driven technology instead of toxic gas powered machines.
A large number of the gods and goddesses of Asgard have not yet returned to the land (Odin included). Although Asgard is a bit rattled by this Frigga has been managing things in her husband's place for the time being. As for Utgard people have been noticing strange things happening, such as the weather turning abnormal during particular seasons and more natural disasters happening in different corners of the world. People assume its because the Gods have not yet returned and as such even some Utgardians are getting a bit shaken by it.
Chokma has been mostly peaceful, but as of late mana levels have been acting weird and more brown/black outs happen at random. Town officials and the like have been steadily working to see what could be causing the problems.
This RP will once again take place in Utgard. Times have changed a lot and now people are enjoying their lives just as the humans have in the past! Those who were in the first arc, feel free to reuse your characters. You can also create new characters this time round and turn your old characters into npcs and what not.
Asgard and Utgard are now at peace, they even have established stable trade with one another. Angels are now common to see in Utgard (usually as merchants) and Demons are just as common in Asgard. The Baubma have broke free however of slavery and have become a independent race who call themselves elves. Try to discriminate against them and they'll go apeshit. Seriously.
More info will come once the first arc ends. If you want to reuse npcs for the new arc just repost an updated bio.
Race: Daemon, personfication of Gula
BIO: A young girl with short black and orange hair, tied in a sideways ponytail to her left, she has been known as Bao and Pau in another life. She enjoys playing around in the kitchen, and it would not be a surprise if she is seen dancing around while cooking and throwing ingredients off the walls to bounce into her pot. However, Lau is a responsible being, and will clean up after her mess. She's usually wearing a simple orange t-shirt and black jeans, along with the Sin family headset on both ears in the fashion of large headphones with crow wings. She wields Beelzebub, the sword of Gula in Sin Mode.
Race: Daemon, personification of Avaritia
BIO: A snarky and greedy sin with glasses, Shigaru has long black and gold hair. She works as a history and finance teacher at Drake's school. Given enough money, she'll allow you to pass the class with little to no effort, though her lessons tend to be worth the money kept. Careful, if you piss her off, she'll nearly miss and blast the wall behind you with a handcannon, probably on purpose too. She wears a typical business suit with black slacks and a gold necktie. Shigaru also wears the Sin family headset on her right ear with crow wings. She wields Mammon, the sword of Avaritia in Sin Mode.
Race: Daemon, personification of Ira
BIO: Fraternal twin sister of Shigaru, she is the long black and red-haired sin with an extremely short temper. Works with Shigaru as the sciences teacher and dresses similar to her sister, except has a black pleated skirt and red necktie. Wields Amon in Sin Mode.
Race: Daemon, personification of Luxuria
BIO: Bears a strong resemblance to her predecessor before her, Charlotte. The waist-length blue and black-haired girl is almost always seen hopping around town, doing various housework for the family and helping out others without much particular purpose. Wears a flowery blue dress and has a blue rose trinket around her neck along with the Sin family headset as headphones. Wields Asmodeus in Sin Mode.
Race: Daemon, personification of Superbia
BIO: A recently school-graduated Sin, she's been spending most of her time in the library with Charil, reading up on the history. Because she does not leave home much, she's usually in a violet kimono and wears the Sin headset on her left ear. Wields Lucifer in Sin Mode.
The old head of the Kagamiya family as well as the old leader of the cubi race. Shortly after the Three Hundred Years war ended he retired from both positions and passed on cubi headship to the head of the Jolicoeur cubi family, Claire Jolicoeur. As for the Kagamiya head after a series of tests and trials those of his kids actually decided to under go the family head ended up becoming Saika Kagamiya. Now Kai often kicks back and relaxes, taking care of his restaurant in Chokma known as The Red Papaya. Compared to how he was in the past he's really mellowed out and isn't quite as crazy as before (albeit still crazy).
Akaiito's twin sister. When the Three Hundred Years war ended she retired from her position as Field Marshal and soon enough her and Quinton Locke ended up in a relationship. Nowadays she is a Light and Dark elemental magic teacher at the high school called Chokma Collegiate Vocational Institute. Funny enough is that her son also happens to attend said school and her husband Locke just so happens to work there too. She prefers to go by her initial family name due to it just flowing way better with her first name then Locke (lol). She's known to whap Drake upside on the head with a textbook when he's being naughty (which is most of the time...)
Height - 6'3
Appearance - A demon with a full head of red hair and two tubby horns that pop up from his mop of hair.
BIO - A former Naval officer. He currently is a history teacher but if you get him talking about his military days or the sea and he'll never shut up. He's pretty well liked despite that.
age: who knows
BIO: The wife of Odin and the current ruler of Asgard. She is the one in charge of the whole operation and is providing all the resources needed to carry it out.
BIO: A youthful angel who wields a bow. He has a strong sense of justice, controls his emotions well, and is very honourable. He's tends to always stay calm and doesn't get rattled easily.
BIO: An angelic woman who wields a gun blade. She puts great effort into her work, is very good at managing it all on top of that and holds a lot of morals. She is naturally a hard worker where laziness just isn't part of her vocabulary!
Age: ??? (appears to be around 20-30 years old, so she is young for her race)
Race: Dragon demon (Looks to be a mix between a Zmalaj and an Azure dragon)
Bio: About a hundred years ago or so, Boris found Cecily one night as he walked the streets of Chokma. When Boris took her in, she was very weak and ill, and had little to no memory of her past. Quite a mess.. To repay him, Cecily decided she would work in his manor as one of his maids. She Stayed there and worked many years for him. One day, Boris convinced her to leave to pursue some sort of more productive career. She decided to get a good education and obtained a degree in nursing, at the same time becoming more talented with healing magic. Cecily worked in a hospital for quite a few decades but recently decided to return for some time to work under Boris, working part-time as a home-call nurse at the same time... She is much happier and content than she used to be, although she never really figured out why her parents were murdered.
As I was writing up the novel version for Nanowrimo (which i got too lazy to finish) I had the growing urge to remake the RP, setting and all, as well as plot revisions due to the older rp being tainted with a lot of filler and improvisations. I'm putting this up now so people will have time to get their pcs and the like in order much like with cradle.
A silver haired man sat by his sick daughter's bedside. He stroked her face softly, filled with despair at the thought of her seemingly impossible survival. It was only her hoarse breathing that seemed to break the silence in the room. With a sigh he got up and switched off the light elemental mana flow from a mana erg lamp. It still resonated with heat like it should and kept the room nice and warm for the ill girl who had drifted into unconsciousness not too long ago.
The man left and walked through the dark hallways of the oriental manor. Exotic paintings hung on the walls and even decorated some sliding doors but he didn't take time to take in its beauty now. The lingering despair of the thought that he may lose his youngest daughter was too much. He had to leave tomorrow morning for peace talks with the other cubi clans much to his dismay. He slowly crept into his own bedroom and decided he'd think this over more in the morning. It was then that a shining light engulfed the room filled with a certain wamrth yet at the same time foreign air. The man quickly covered his eyes from the light and eventually drew away his arm when his eyes had adjusted. A beautiful woman adorned with golden silks with pale skin and deep blue hair stood before him. On her back was a pair of wings like that of a swallowtail butterfly's. She beckoned him to come closer and he did.
For whatever reason, a goddess had approached him. She began to speak, the music in her voice resounding but her tone seemed almost sorrowful.
“I can save your daughter from the illness that threatens to take her life but at a certain price...”
In a distant land, very unlike yet at the same time similar to our own, a war waged on in a world known as Utgard. Asgard, the realm of the angels and gods; Utgard, the realm of the demons. Both worlds have been warring against one another for hundreds of years; to the point that both lands are drained of resources after the many long years of fighting. War torn and in desperate need for assistance, the Gods themselves joined the frontlines of battles in an attempt to push the demons out of Asgard.
But many disappeared shortly after. Be it that they were bested in battle or fled from the carnage... Nobody knows.
In the farthest reaches of Utgard in the country of Banem stood grand mountains with countless ruins of old nestled deep within. Normally they would be deserted, but from the deepest pits of the limestone-carved ruins was a lone silver-haired man whose sunset coloured eyes pierced through the darkness.
"Wasting time... Wasting time..." the man mumbled to himself.
His daughter may be steadily recovering thanks to the goddess but his end of the bargain had yet to be fully paid. However, the final phase of his plan had just been passed to his cohorts and soon... Soon his debt will be repaid.
Be it in the blood and steel that taints the holy lands of Asgard.
This RP is just over one millennium after the events of Phantasmagoria. Midgard is nothing more then the talk of legends to all except the few who had been there themselves. The way to the legendary land is blocked out due to powerful magics used by the cubi race, who are once again running about. Technology will be on par with that of real world late 1800's and it will run on mana as a fuel source rather then electricity/steam/w/e. There are, of course, no cars.
Humans do not exist in this world. There IS a human-like race, but they're more like watered down demons if anything known as the Baubma (baeahoo-baemah) race. They are generally not exactly useless, but are still typically considered weak compared to demons/angels unless they had trained themselves to the point they surpass the other two, be it talent or special gifts.
Angels will be allowed, however no one will be of Arch Angel or some powerful withstanding position in the army. You will be restricted to a common soldier or citizen. You are free to go fallen angel too, but I expect a good enough back story as to why your angel ended up tumbling down to Utgard.
Demons will most likely be most common, as they are the dominate race in Utgard, which half of the story takes place in (and begins in). For demon races feel free to pull ANYTHING out of folklore from various mythologies, or even make your own species. If you pick an obscure demon race or make your own please note down notable things of the race. One of the more common races at this time are the cubi race, which in turn will lead to me using Kai. A remade version of his burning steel bio will be up soon enough.
age: old (he's not as old as Kai though derp)
BIO: A well known magician in Utgard who has mastered countless types of magic, from elemental to summoning. He's taught many students over the years, most notably the great General Yuuki of the demon military. While for the most part he tends to be incredibly sarcastic and only wishes to drive you crazy... he's a good guy deep down. Maybe. He lives in a cottage in the Forest of Souls outside of Chokma but often comes to the city for official business with the Royal Family and other things people hire him for.
BIO: Her great grandmother, Isabella Frost, came to Utgard with Kai and many others at the fall of Midgard. Her great grandmother was one of the only humans who survived the ordeal, so she of course is part human herself. However many generations of mixing blood have made it watered down but even then her appearance is just like that of a human's. People who have lived long enough to see a human in the old days often ask if she's human, but of course she has some demon blood in her. Like her grandmother she is a master with Time Magic and Light Magic.
BIO: He owns The Ogre's Lair. He also listens to people's problems, but unlike Mira he'll tell you his opinion on your problems, either you like it or not. He's skilled in brewing different wines and beer, and even has a few original creations of his own. Applecot wine(which he made/invented) is really popular in Chokma.
His character is extremely blunt, and tends to act like an *******, but he's really not that bad. Oh, and he's an ogre who lost his arm in the war. He's considered old for their kind.
Age: ??? (appears to be around 20-30 years old, so she is young for her race)
Race: Dragon demon (looks like an Azure dragon)
Bio: Boris found Cecily one night while walking the streets of Chokma. She was bloodied, sickly and thin, with despair written all over her face. Unable to leave her like this, Boris decided to take her in. Cecily had suffered major trauma, and does not really remember much. All she knows is that her parents were murdered and she escaped by chance. Her home was apparently burned down and she lost all of her wealth and possessions. Though she insisted on leaving once she was healthy again, Boris wouldn't hear of it and allowed her to work for him as his maid. She's been working there for a few months now, and is looking and feeling better. Though she still wears that unmistakable look of sadness, she is happy to be there. She is very kind, humble and is mostly quiet and very secretive. She tends to go unnoticed amongst most of the maids and workers, and she prefers it that way..
Race: Daemon, personification of Gula
A young girl with orange and black hair tied in a sideways ponytail, she was previously known as "Bao Chashao" in a very early personification of Gula, loved and adored by the entire family. She loves food and is head chef of the Sin family. Often visits the Kagamiya restaurant to see "Shoe" without much success. Bad timing on her part. Distant cousin to the Chevalier sisters.
Race: Daemon, personification of Avaritia
The gold and black-haired Sin family treasurer and engineer/scientist, Sanzuru was previously known as "Nihiru Honitsu" in an early personification and is the biggest troublemaker in the family. Hardly takes many things seriously other than her creations and money, possibly anyone that amuses her. She also has a gambling ring around Utgard where she gathers most of her information. Aunt to the Chevalier sisters.
Race: Daemon, personification of Acedia
An extremely lazy girl with long black and blue hair flowing down to her knees and bangs covering her face. She is quiet and many question whether or not she can talk at all. If she works at all, she doesn't show anyone. Relationship with Chevalier sisters is extremely difficult to comprehend.
Age: 201 (looks 20)
Appearance: Similar face and eyes as his younger brother. He has long golden hair, though it has more brown in it. He wears it in a long braid. He wears a military uniform.
BIO: the head of the Yuuki family in Chokma. With the death of the old master (their uncle) he took over the house. He is a leader in the Imperial Army and is often out on duty. He's the youngest master of his own estate in the area. He is cool, handome, takes shit from no one, and generally is EVERYTHING GRANDISON WISHES TO BE~!
Age - 1,392
Height - 6'3
Appearacene - A demon with a full head of red hair and two tubby horns that pop up from his mop of hair. He wears a uniform that looks like Makoto's but it's white. He has a muscular physique.
BIO - The head of the demon ship. He actually works under Makoto though. He's a nice easy going guy. Very easy to get along with and his crew love him.
age: who knows
BIO: A healer who keeps in contact with Sanzuru. Nobody knows what she really is besides being half demon and she always seems bored or uninterested. She makes puns and jokes that can make you gasp in horror and is always seen smoking something. She's skilled with all healing magics and knows he way around enchanted forests with herbs. You'd think she'd be bright, sunny, and cheery but she's quite the opposite.
Adam ( Avaritia)
BIO: A phantasm who's hung around Bianca for most his life. He was created by her sister, Serena and represents Greed among the Greater Phantasms Serena had created a thousand years ago. He has no age, since he is not truely made up of real flesh as he is really just a bunch of souls condensed into a new being. He's currently a reporter who does highly exaggerated news articles, the Chokma Daily Post. He tends to be rather snarky and selfish at times.
Name: Bethesda Arclite
Bio: The casual, outgoing, and just Nekomata guard that greeted Finir into Chokma's walls. As nature dictates, her feline abilities make her light on her feet and swift with her attacks. Fairly attractive in appearance, she is a gem among stones. Though only meeting the azure dragon once, she already feels a sisterly connection to him. As she fights, it seems more like she's playing and having fun as she spins the chain of her flail around.
Name: Horatio Constance
BIO: A strong yet broad demon, Horatio is a Brigadier General of the 4th division and is now residing in the city of Chokma. Reaching a high rank at such a young age, this man is gifted with a special ability: logic that is so straightforward it will hit your brain, and hit it again.
Atleast TRY to be active. If you're going to be too busy to type up a few lines in a RP, then either step out or ask us to go on a hiatus. Don't just disappear on us. Also, make your step out make sense and work in the plot
Don't control others characters unless you get permission
Don't randomly kill off someone else's character. Talk about it here first
And of course, what is considered common sense in RPs
Those who were in the old RP are free to come back and reuse their old character bios. The only person who I am barring from this RP is Mirei/Rhois, whom has failed to even keep up with an RP I've been in not only once, but twice. You had your chance and you lost it, sorry.
Hod: A fishing and agriculture isle mainly composed of small villages. The demon army have taken over this island.
Bi'nah: A city of inventors. A true show of the strange technologies Asgard has that seem more advanced then Utgard technology.
Da'at: The Capital city of Asgard. The fabled Hallway of Val'halla is nestled in the branches of the towering World Tree of the Angels and Gods. However it's hallways are empty and the Gods are absent from what was once known as the Glorious Capital of the Gods. The city is a fortress city surrounded by a stone wall and the like.

12-19-2010 07:04 PM
I don't know!
12-19-2010 07:16 PM
I think maybe people are interested but are turned away cause it seems really complicated. (Which I don't blame them, I remember reading the how2rp guide and going ?__? )
Anyway I think about joining this, I'm still not sure orz
edit: e i meant another threda sorry dani
12-19-2010 07:20 PM
... This seems confusing? lol
Its really just explaining what races there are and a plot summary, lol
12-19-2010 07:21 PM
12-19-2010 09:31 PM
Y'know what? I just might be interested.
I remember RPing a long time ago, but stopped due to...heh, lack of (furry) interests. Sounds very appealing to me right now. In fact, I think I'll go draw up my character. -goes to desk-
Would I have to read through your just finished RP to get a hang of what's going on, or would you send me a brief summary of it via PM or...what?
Well, either way it goes, I'll try to keep up and not let anyone down as much as possible, that I promise.
12-19-2010 09:37 PM
o/ Hey there.
It's entirely optional to read through Phantasmagoria to get a grasp on the setting once they hit Utgard, but otherwise not needed. Just keep in mind you'll probably need to have your character in Utgard in the beginning of the rp for character interaction and you'll be good.
If you have any questions regarding the plot, races, and the like just feel free to drop a PM for me.
And remade too! (Slightly edited, BUT WE CAN PASS IT OFF AS REMADE!)
Also, can we have more than one character? This seems like a good time to get a very solid female one for me down.
of course you can have more then one character. The limit for this round will be three since dot has three pcs this time around (lol)
If you're going with the same plot you had before for Leht then it's cool, just know people will be freaking out when they realize he's HUUUUMAAAAANNNNnnn
12-20-2010 11:46 AM
three... cecilia gran here i come. jk
12-20-2010 12:01 PM
I'll probably just stick with one, a cthulhu monster is good enough. :v
