Don't Turn Away
Don't Give into the Pain.
Dont try to Hide
Though they're Screaming your Name.
Don't close your Eyes
God knows what Lies Behind them.
Don't turn out the Light
Never sleep. Never die.
Save us from Evil
Servatis a Maleficum....... - Whisper by Evanescence

Co-DM'ed with: Thunder Knight

Hello all, and welcome to Whisper: City of Darkness ((The Reboot)). For those new to this RP, welcome! To those returning: welcome back! This is a reboot of my most successful RP, which I am still determined to finish! This time around, we have a few changes for character/player benefit and convenience. The plotline is more or less the same, so no real changes there. IF YOU ARE CONFUSED IN THE CONCEPT OF TAROT POWERS, PLEASE DON’T WORRY! It will become extremely evident what they do as the RP progresses.

~~~~~~~~
Setting the Scene:
In a distant future, eons after the canon events of MLP:FiM, the Royal Sisters have disappeared, and a mysterious King has taken their place. The Mane 6 have become immortal, the Guardians of Harmony. However, despite the fervent prayers of countless citizens, they remain silent and hidden the heavens. Princesses Celestia and Luna are no longer present to raise the sun and moon, and so Equestria no longer has night, nor day. The Sun is missing for the sky, as is its counterpart. All that remains is what ponies call the Mist. The atmosphere is dull and grey.
Canterlot has changed. It has been divided into two sections, the Upper and Lower Cities. The Upper city houses those who can afford it, mainly first and second class ponies, while the Lower City houses the poor and unfortunate, and is often referred to as the Slums.

The Everfree Forest is gone, worn away with time. All that remains is the river that ran straight through. It is strictly forbidden for a pony to ever cross the Everfree River, and any that do are never seen again…
Your Character:
At any point in time, be it at the beginning of the RP or sometime before, your character will receive an invitation to Equestria’s most prestigious school: the Equestrian Academy for Higher Learning. However; something evil lurks within the walls of the school. Your character, along with Twelve others, is specially chosen to be a part of an expedition that is supposedly going to explore the long lost ruins of the Crystal Empire. What you don’t expect is the subsequent drugging and abandonment at the gates of a strange city. You and your peers do the sensible thing and look for a map, a landmark, anything.
What you find is a whole lot more than your bargained for.

Summery:
Basically, your character is specially selected to “explore the long dead Crystal Empire” but in reality is dumped on the doorstep of a cursed city ((aka Delvia)) and left to die. The whole RP is based around a conspiracy that the 12 students chosen are not only linked to powers having to do with Horoscope Star signs, but also have abilities in regards to the 22 Major Arcana Tarot Cards.
You can choose any OC you want, however, you must choose a Star Sign and a Tarot Card to go with them.

I'm up for participating in this RP :D! It seems very interesting, and I think this character would fit in nicely:

 

http://mlpforums.com/page/roleplay-characters/_/acheron-r3018

 

I'm honestly not sure what his card thingy should be though... perhaps Devil? His magic is dark, is in constant search for knowledge to raise his power and knowing (in Paradise Lost, Satan tempts man with knowledge and was of course banished for being a seeker of things not his to have), and if Acheron does enter into "deals" with others, he usually demands something in return.

You tell me :P.

You tell me :P.

His magic may be dark; however, is darkness truly evil? I've always interpreted the Devil card as somewhat misleading in definition, mostly because of the reverse pentagram on the original card. Most people would say its bad, or evil, but it really depends on how you look at darkness.

Upon studying the Devil card, one finds its meaning:

"Ravage, weird or strange experience, downfall, unexpected failure, controversy, violence, disaster, and ill temperament."

Are these qualities you spot early on in your character?

Also, what is his Horoscope? That may make it easier to determine his Arcana. ;) Once we get this all sorted, I'll add him down to the list!

Horoscope? That, I'll have major trouble coming up with since I know very little about them... maybe you could help me out on the meaning of each one?

As for the tarot card, I just realized how difficult it might be to come up with one! His obvious quality is a constant lust for forbidden knowledge, but his other characteristics include a Machiavellian persona, which is "do whatever you need to to protect yourself and succeed", and also deep sorrow due to loneliness and past betrayal.

Oh no, not at all! Horoscope is actually very simple, and there are less variables to think on! To start, do you know your own Horoscope? It has to do with your birthday, just the month and the day, forget about the year. For example, I was born on the 25th of September, therefore I am a Libra. To make it simpler, I just had my character be a Libra, too!

Do you want your OC's horoscope to match yours?

As for the Tarot card part, it is said that the Heirophant is actually a keeper of Forbidden Knowledge...

Well I do know that horoscopes are supposed to determine personality traits and things like that... oh well, mine is Sagittarius.

Now to the tarot card... that certainly simplifies things :P.

Interested! She might be too young, in which case I'll up the age if you need me too.

Her astral sign will be Sagittarius and I interpreted the Hanged Man as fitting her personality, given her style of being silent and observing, catching details others might miss and interpreting them to formulate a plan of action.

Oh dear :/ it seems we have a small problem. I believe someone has already chosen Sagittarius as their sign. Are you alright with a change of Horoscope? If you aren't, I'll understand.

Other than that, everything's perfect...

Of course! Like I said, for you the Heirophant would be my best bet. In an article I read up on recently it mentioned that a Heirophant is actually somewhat of a keeper of forbidden knowledge...

Yes, and I think the reverse of The Hierophant is something about not conforming to society and its norms, which in the case of forbidden knowledge, is very unorthodox!

 

So Hierophant and Sagittarius it is then!

Virgo or Taurus or Capricorn, whichever of those is open and you think works best? I'm fine with anything, really.

I'm think the Virgo sounds best! Out of the three you listed, it is closest to your OC's tendencies.

Marvelous! I'd actually never thought of utilizing the traits of both sides of the tarot cards before, wonderful idea!

I'll join as Pacific Glow, a unicorn. I'll send in her database page in a few minutes.

 

She will be perfect, I think. But you'll have to help me think of the tarot and horoscope. I just don't want to use Pisces. Perhaps Aquarius.

If it's possible to be two characters, I'll join as a Pegasus oC, Broken Cloud. She will be Gemini if.

 

I'll sen in both database pages soon.

If you're sure you can keep up with both, that's perfectly alright! I'll hold the Aquarius and Gemini spots for you until you send in their data.

Thank you! I'll send in Broken's database page soon, I'm just still editing her a bit. I still have to make Pacific's page.

Also, sorry about my horrible writing in my first post there, I was dealing with severe lag.

Glad to see this starting back up again.  I'd like to give a whack at it again.  I'm on summer vacation so I should have more time.  I'll take my normal place as Aries if it isn't too much to ask and I'm pretty sure my tarot was the Magician.

Psych Ward, correct? Because we are ready for a returning party. :D

 

 

 

 

And for everyone else on the thread, hello! I am Thunder Knight, Co-DMing with BlackShardNixum. I was here when it first was started, and I want to see the finish.

 

Let us begin... when we are ready. We have six slots to fill, correct?

Hello again, Thunder!  It is wonderful to see this rebooted.  I loved the last thread.  Some of the people were just not compatible and tried running the thing or having over powered characters.  I'll have to redraw Arianna but I remember what she looks like.

If you don't get those pages in soon, I'm afraid I'll have to give your spots away. We have someone here willing to take the Gemini spot. It's been a couple days, and I'm afraid if I don't get those pages by the end of the day, I'll have to go ahead and let them go :/

I have someone with Gemini reserved. However, they are unresponsive and haven't submitted their characters yet. If they don't get the character in by the end of the day, you can have Gemini. In the mean time, would you like to choose a substitute Horoscope just in case?
