Tentative interest shown. The premise is interesting enough, but I want to see the OOC and stuff before I commit; get a bit more info and things.
You are dead.
The words echo in your head as you breathe your last breath.
But you can't die.
This statement is greeted with confusion from yourself, something you hadn't realized you could still do.
Your soul is stronger than most.
By this time, your vision is returning. It is dark, but you can make out the faint outline of clouds.
Welcome to Death. And you are now a denizen of it. But unlike most civilians in death, you are different. You will be allowed to return to life. But with one condition.
A dark shape looms over you, casting a shadow darker than midnight over your body, which you now realize is cold. You can feel.
You must serve Me.
You are suddenly jolted upwards, to a standing position, to face a grinning skull. It is yellow-cream colored, riddled with age. Two bright embers burn where the eyes once were. You suddenly realize; you stare Death in the face.
You are now a Tax Collector of Death, and you are no longer mortal.
You can see fully, feel, and finally, hear. Moans and screams fill the air, almost constantly...
Now go. You are needed at the Agency...
The black-shrouded form of death fades away, as does the surrounding hill, which you realize you were standing on.
Your surroundings are replaced with an office of sorts, some kind of reception counter taking up most of the room. A pale, elderly man sits behind the desk, writing on a piece of paper.
"Welcome to the Tax Collection Agency! Please step forward and enter your application." The man says this without looking up. It looks like you have no choice, and you realize there is already an application in your hand, filled out and everything...
This will be a supernatural RP, obviously. Each of you will be Tax Collectors.. Of Death. His personal reapers for people who don't want to die.
The plot will revolve around this Ethereal Agency, the TCA.
There are several plot lines which will be run.
~Plot 1: A Murder of Crows~
Now, even Agents are not safe from True Death. About a month ago, TCA members began vanishing. At first, it was low-ranked members. They were assumed dead on the job. Then, came higher ranking members. Also found dead on the job. And recently, members have been found dead in their offices; killed the only way that TCA members can be killed... Murder. Who in the Agency is killing their associates?
~Plot 2: Till Death do Us Part~
The dead aren't staying dead. Due to a fluctuation of deaths in the world, Death himself cannot keep up with them all. Souls are being left to wander the mortal world, which is unacceptable, and the Agency is getting commissioned to clean up the spirits. But, try as they might, the dead are returning. Who, or what, is bringing back the dead?
~Plot 3: (Work in Progress)~

Well, I usually wait for 4-5 peopel interested before I bother with an OOC. I usually put a lot of work into my OOCs, and I'd rather not waste the time on something that no one even joins.
Glad you're semi-interested.
I expect the wait, don't worry, I'm not impatient haha. It's just, there's no explanation of how the RP will actually be structured. The plot snippet is interesting, but I can't commit to something if I don't how it's going to work, correct? That's all it is haha.
I understand. I'll post up the plot outline in a bit.
Lol Cypher, you're welcome in any rp of mine.
Tentative interest here as well.
Do not under any circumstance read this signature.
