Searching To Save a Soul (searching) [dark adventure]


Recommended Posts

Save a Soul OOC [dark adventure]

 

An epic journey through the prison of Tartarus, down into the fog of limbo to venture into the hellscape of The underworld itself to confront Hades. All for a chance to make the journey home, bringing a single soul back to the realm of life for each mortal to best him.

 

***************************

 

The time of the show has long past, over a millennia or two since the battle against Tirek. Many important characters to us have faded from the scene, the names of Celestia, Luna, Cadence and Discord have been completely forgotten while the mane six are mostly whispers and legend.

 

Except Twilight Sparkle and Rainbow Dash; Twilight has become an Alicorn with magic unrivaled, she is the Queen of Equestria, during the troubled and turbulent times it was her strength and will that held the kingdom together. Twilight is celebrated and loved, her rule while strict has seen nearly a five hundred years of peace. Rainbow Dash ever loyal serves as the head of her guard, ageless by Twilight's magic she is unparalleled in flight and dedication to the ponies of Equestria.

 

In these centuries of peace Equestria seemed to be a utopia until last night everything changed. A dark cloud swept forth from Tararus to the royal palace, Hades lord of the underworld came and plucked Twilight from her throne. Even with all her magic she was helpless before him and was dragged back to the nether realm.

 

This is where you will be joining the story, the morning after with all of Equestria panicking and rioting, as hungry foreign eyes turn uncertain on the leaderless kingdom. Equestria needs it's leader back, and you are joining the party into hades to reclaim a soul, if you can.

 

CHARACTER SUGGESTIONS

• Guards, selfless royal guards seeking to save Twilight ready to sacrifice themselves, only one pony needs to see the journey through to the end to save all of Equestria

 

• Citizen, personal reason to join, a lost loved one, the guilt of some horrible accident in your past? You feel responsible for a soul in the land of the dead, it's up to you to undo what happened... Survive no matter what, no one else could right your wrong.

 

• Prisoner, locked in Tartarus for so long you have forgotten your crime and past. You can't escape on your own... This group and a trip through hell might be the only key to your freedom... Memory... and maybe even redemption? (Check with me if you are interested in this one)

 

RULES

• No Alicorns or God Modding

• While it is the future Advanced Tech is not likely, do to troubled times the world has not advanced. (You may ask approval)

• Romance is allowed, try to bond with the other players it might save your life; just keep it appropriate

• Be active, try not to leave people waiting on you.

This definitely sounds interesting. I'll try to come up with a character later on today.

eh.... sure I will partake.... I always keep a link of my OC in my signature....as for what roll he takes I think either citizen or prisoner would work best since he is an assassin for hire.....

I have a character that would be perfect for a citizen role, but being a prisoner also sounds pretty interesting, so I'm going to have to think about it, I guess. I feel like having more than one prisoner wouldn't really be a good idea, though, assuming you'd even allow it, so if somebody else wants to do that I can just go the civilian route.

Sorry for the delay, yesterday was my last final.

 

@@Shadow Dancer @@Snowflake Frostflame

The two of you have builds as assassins, and while your history's will need some slight tweaking would you be okay with being two of Twilight's inner guard? Any violence in your past would need to occur outside of Equestria with you perhaps coming to Equestria for the peace it offered and forget everything about the royal princesses just replace it with Queen Twilight. Your specialization powers would probably complement each other but no being too over powered, know your strength limits you in other more normal forms of magic. This okay with you both?

 

@@Dji

Approved! :)

 

@@Alex Kennedy

I'm okay with probably two prisoners, more would start being too much but right now you could be the second; hit me with your civilian and send a pm to talk about a prisoner position.

 

@@Midnight_Aurora

Your first OC wouldn't exactly fit, very interesting though if I did a sci-fy I would love them. Your second OC doesn't exactly fit the prisoner role, maybe she could be reworked to fit as a citizen if your still interested I'd be happy to work with you to figure it out.

 

@@Gloomfury

I'm actually going to approve you as a citizen; this might change your backstory a little bit but I find your backstory and potential in this story very interesting.

 

Some restrictions on your necromancy abilities, that first rat you brought back has been the only thing you've ever brought back that seems to be sentient and have it's own soul. Also the only thing that has stayed stable and preserved, everything else the magic degrades or it rots. The bigger the creature is the hard it is to bring them back fleshy, small creatures can come back like zombies but by the time you get to Ponies you can only raise skeletons. Sound fair for now? Your power may develop as the game goes on.

 

@@Scribblegroove

First approved prisoner, get back to me on the little things I mentioned. But if you want that or not he's approved.

I have one more that may fit the prisoner role. And how she would have became a prisoner pertains to making amends for an entire species of beings. They caused great harm in their past and she gave herself as the price for their forgiveness. Her name is Chrysteel. She is a Changeling.

As for the first one she is dead so the mechanical stuff no longer applies. The second one was a chara that I would have asked to help make a bit more darker and Evilish. This last one chose her fate to save her kind. She became a prisoner to make amends for the wrongs committed by the rest of her kind. A sacrifice for her kind if you will.

 

If those don't work a guard to twilight would also work for midnight aurora. But she wouldn't be here just for Twilight. As a twin soul she would be able to use both halves of her self for two souls.

As I RP with my characters I will add bits of history to them as I start making it for RP but this history will be more of the kind that is able to be a universal fit. also thanks for accepting me. I'll tack the violence on my old home Thalem a place I established in my chars cannon to be his original home and where his career started in the military

 

I could use this as a way for Indicus to "make up for his perceived failures" adding a personal touch to the reason he is guarding Twilight. Sound good?

 

Hell maybe bits and pieces of character background history in this RP that seem fitting for Indicus will be made cannon for him. Can't wait to start!

Fair enough. And she is a necromancer but knowledge in other kinds of magic is pretty limitless. She is able to use most of them but not at their full capabilities. And most of her adventures have also helped her learn about other things as well. Like about other worlds, the afterlife, the underworld, creatures of all kinds and other things that one pony shouldn't really know.

 

Forbidden knowledge in other words.

 

But she is still a normal unicorn with limitations.

I can except the knowledge of other planes and a basic understanding of how other magics work in theory but actually actively using them all even on a basic level would be too OP. Your character may grow over the course of the RP but for now limit yourself to necromancy and simple magic.

 

As for the knowledge be careful what claims you make since it is my story and I don't want you to accidental get something critical wrong and doom the party. You can always shoot me a pm to ask a question for knowledge.

 

That all sound fine?

Yep. And most of the things she knows are simple things that are known of but not fully known. So random facts here and there. And if it's anythings that you made up yourself I will obviously not know and neither will she. So she'll be kinda in and out of the dark on things.

 

But she will know stories that involve Hell aka Tartarus. Plus she knows someone who has the embodiment of one of the seven deadly sins, Wrath, in side of her. Another one of my OCs.

 

I like things that are kinda dark, as you can tell. Necromancy, hell, demons, tails behind the sins. That sort of thing.

 

But still, she won't be OP or all knowing, trust me.

I'm kinda against this.... I don't like changing my OC's backstory.... now that doesn't mean I'm going to be stubborn about it.... I will do this on one condition.... Snowflake has his same backstory but he was captured by the Equestrian Army and had his memory wiped except for his skills in combat and a few other small things so that he may serve them....

 

now if you disagree with this don't worry I won't leave I can just use an alternative version of him.... I have three different versions of Snowflake....

Hmm... I feel rather annoying posting this, but if this RP isn't dead, I would also love to join. :D
