Rhym Posted March 13, 2005 Share Posted March 13, 2005 [FONT=Times New Roman][ALIGN=Center][SIZE=3][U][B]PANTHEON[/B][/U][/SIZE] [I][SIZE=2]A Home For All Gods[/SIZE] At the beginning of time, the Great Six came into being: Ra, Zeus, Odin, Osiris, Hades, and Hel; Life and Death each presented in aspects of three. All held great power and had many multitudes of believers. Yet none were content to be one of three. And so the War of the Six began. The great war raged from the fertile valleys of the Nile to the lofty halls of Asgard. The Great Six fought for the belief of humanity which they so craved. Mankind fought because their gods bade them so. But, as man and god alike battled furiously on the surface, Auroboros, Devourer of Worlds, Harbinger of Obliteration, Serpent of The End Times, plotted below. In their weakened and conflicted state, neither deity nor human held the power to stop Auroboros from rising up and annihilating the world. All watched in horror as the terrible serpent emerged from the fiery core of the world. Havoc was wrought across the globe, and all hope seemed lost. In desperation, the Great Six joined the astral kingdoms of Asgard and Mount Olympus and bade all to unite against this all-consuming menace. After many years of struggle, Auroboros was once more cast into the fiery core of the world, where he has waited ever since, constantly probing for weaknesses. It is because of this that the Great Six formed the organization of Pantheon. Pantheon is led by the Great Six, with all gods working underneath them. This secret society of deities has toiled eternally to thwart the ceaseless efforts of Auroboros. The year is 2063 A.D. Auroboros is planning something of a far greater scale than ever attempted before.[/I] [SIZE=2][B][U]THE RULES[/U][/B][/SIZE][/ALIGN] Gods from any polytheistic society will be accepted, with these exceptions: [u][b]NO "BIG GUYS"[/b][/u] - Any leaders of pantheons (e.g. Zeus, Odin, Ra) or main gods of underworlds (e.g. Hades, Hel, Osiris) will not be accepted. However, if there are subordinate underworld gods (e.g. Anubis) those will be accepted. [u][b]NO GOD-MODDING[/b][/u] - We're only playing as the mortal incarnations of gods, not as gods themselves, so you can still screw up. [u][b]MUST BE A REAL GOD[/b][/u] - Try not to make up gods. There are a lot of gods out there, and I'm not even thinking about African or Oriental gods, which you can also choose. [ALIGN=Center][SIZE=2][B][U]SIGN-UP[/U][/B][/SIZE][/ALIGN] [b]Name:[/b] Pretty straightforward. What your character's name is. [b]Avatar:[/b] Which god your character is the avatar of (avatar is mortal incarnation). [b]Culture:[/b] Whichever culture originally worshipped this god. This is your god's culture, not your character's. [b]Description:[/b] Casual Form- This is what your character looks like. Avatar Form- In times of true peril, your character can truly become their god. This is a description of them when in avatar form. [b]Personality:[/b] Here you can take a bit of creative license. Describe what the god's personality is. For example, should you choose Dionysus, the Greek god of wine, you could say that he's a huge party animal. [b]Powers:[/b] What powers your character has been granted. All characters receive short-term memory erasure as a basic skill, since Pantheon is a secret society and wants to stay that way. Other than that, come up with some powers that your character's god might grant them. [b]Armament:[/b] If your god needs weapons, give it some. If not, just say that your god uses powers. [b]Past Containments of Auroboros:[/b] This is the tricky bit. Do some research and find a noteworthy event in history. Then, tweak it to be an attempt of Auroboros' to invade our world. This'll give me some idea of your RPing skills. [ALIGN=Center][SIZE=2][B][U]MY CHARACTER[/U][/B][/SIZE][/ALIGN] [b]Name:[/b] Amari Rei [b]Avatar:[/b] Anubis [b]Culture:[/b] Egyptian [b]Description:[/b] Casual- Amari has a very pale complexion. His eyes are gray and his hair is black, spiky and of medium length. He also sports two jackal ears due to the canine nature of his deity. He wears leather sheaths with many buckles on his arms and legs, with heavy-duty, steel-toe boots. To cover his torso, he wears a leather jumpsuit. The arm and leg sheaths are connected to the jumpsuit. Avatar Form- [URL=http://digitaljungle.com/genki/winters/images/sketches/anubis.jpg]Click[/URL] [b]Personality:[/b] Amari is very introverted, with a strong sense of justice. He wears a set of scales on his back and weights in pouches at his side. Should he ever he kill someone, he weighs their soul on the scales. Should the weights prove heavier than the soul, the victim is brought back to life, with a short-term memory erasure. But, should the soul outweigh the weights, the soul is captured in a special container and brought back to Pantheon for Ammit, the soul-eating demon. [b]Powers:[/b] Amari has been granted the power to return life as well as the basic power of memory erasure. In addition, he can slip into the spirit world, a parallel world where things like the souls of dead people are. When he slips, he appears ghostly to those in the physical world, and can't receive harm from physical sources. [b]Armament:[/b] Since Amari has no offensive powers, he relies on two pistols for long range and two sickles for close range. [b]Past Containments of Auroboros:[/b] In 1668 A.D., Auroboros attempted to break through in a place so remote that it was almost certain he would succeed unnoticed. The location was the Solovestskii monastery, on an island in the White Sea, within the Arctic Circle. The only reason it was noticed was that Peter the Great's progressive reforms of the Russian Orthodox church had created deep unrest amongst conservative subjects, such as the monks in the monastery. Like many other trouble spots, troops were dispatched to the Solovestskii monastery to quell the unrest. The monastery was well fortified, however, and had 90 cannons (This much is actually true. Man, those crazy Russians). It was Amari who noticed Auroboros' signature coming from underneath the monastery. He was immediately dispatched to the scene, where he helped the monks resist Peter the Great's forces for more than seven years (the seven years part is also true), replenishing gunpowder and shot when it ran low and providing the monks with artillery training. As the monks kept the troops at bay, Amari and several Pantheon sorcerers completed a seal of containment. However, Auroboros' progress was so much that it took seven years to complete. In the end, the monastery fell to Peter the Great's forces and was made to accept the reforms, but Auroboros' escape had been prevented in yet another instance. So, let's get those sign-ups coming in![/FONT] Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
