The Underworld is at a civil war. On one side you have the Ferrymen, loyal soldiers of the Underworld's order and those who ferry souls through their respective rivers. On the other side, you have Hecate, the Goddess of the moon, magic, crossroads and other things mortals can't comprehend and her escaped minions including Sisyphus, Tantalus and Ixion. You take up arms as Ferrymen of the five rivers of Hades to help Hades maintain the throne.
The Rivers are:
Styx: The River of Hate
Phlegethon: The River of Fire
Lethe: The River of Forgetfulness
Cocytus: The River of Sorrow
Acheron: The River of Pain
Move up in the ranks of the military, select your river and reclaim everything for the glory of what you now hold dear.
A Character Sheet will consist of:
Death Date: Age you died at
Appearance: Photo or description
River: The River you serve, each river has a different specialty and power. Listed below
Weapon: Are you sticking with the iconic scythe or have you something more close to your past life
Styx: Styx Ferrymen are the melee masters, they are more invulnerable than their counterparts as well as have the ability to channel their hatred into their weapons to slice threw most armors.
Phlegethon: Phlegethon Ferrymen are pyromancers. They can hurl fire, and even burn the soul if they wish to. They can even cauterize wounds in their teammates, purifying people of their impurfections
Lethe: Lethe Ferrymen are enchanters, manipulators and diplomats, they can push a person into believing them or doing what they are told. They also have minor darkness manipulation
Cocytus: Cocytus Ferrymen are the opposite of Phlegethon. They are the cryomancers, manipulating ice that can freeze the most damned of us all. They are also a very jaded lot and are immune to mind control.
Acheron: Acheron Ferrymen are the tracker of the underworld. Once they wound someone they know everything about them ending when they wounded the person (for example if one wounds you, they know you like to eat candy in your attic but you could trick them by NOT eating any candy in your attic for a week)
It needs some ironing out but my last game fizzled so here's my new idea.
