[Fantasy-ish, Superhuman abilities, Anarchy]
Location: Oulu, Finland.
Date: 23, June, 2013
A dense cloud of sickly looking fog settled earlier morning on Midsummer day. The Finnish defense forces have already mobilized with great haste with a whole barrier and an arsenal of weaponry outside.
All roads, airports, seaports and other methods of transportation have been entirely blocked off. Internet, phone and television connectivity has been entirely cut off.
The Finnish government has told the inhabitants to remain calm as they are trying to sort out and unexplained issue.
As for now, no soldiers or government officials intend on giving out any more information pertaining to the lock down. They knew something that we did not and they intended on keeping it that way.

It is the end of the Midsummer festival and the lock down has not lifted. The fog has become more dense and panicking has ensued.
There is still enough peat to power the city, but it will surely run out sooner than later. Water supply does not seem to be an issue, though people have begun to fight over food.
No more information has been released from the government. Not only that, People have begun noticing markings and symbols in random locations on their bodies.
Zealots keep preaching to people, referring to these symbols as Insigne. They keep saying that during the end of times, that they will be the instruments of destruction and creation.
Most people seem to ignore these zealots because nobody really understands what they are talking about.

With still no sign of release, some people have quickly begun to cling the the zealots teachings. The Chief of their group proceeded to manipulate fire in mystifying patterns in an attempt to catch peoples attention.
They have explained that the insigne are are unique to the user and can hold great potential. After the display, people lined up to be cured of their cuts and wounds by the clerical workers.
A large mass of people have begun to utilize their insigne with assistance from the zealous group. With little information about this group, many remain skeptical about them.
Some claim that the groups name is "Paholaisen Taidetta" Or "Taide" for short.

The Finnish government has repelled all attempted attacks and escape attempts. The entire population has automatically divided into several groups.
Some people seem to have malicious intent, while other want to use insigne to enrich humanity. Several other, but smaller neutral groups try their best to stay out of the way of large conflicts.
It is now confirmed that the lock down has been deemed indissoluble. The cause is still unknown.
Food has been dropped in to the city and people continue to riot over the limited rations.
Electricity still seems to be running steady, but for how long it will continue to run is indefinite.
Date: 13, July, 2013
We need to leave immediately. Things are out of hand. Great battles between opposing forces have caused buildings to collapse. Even the Defense forces have acquired their own insigne.
People like myself who don't have one are as good as dead. We don't have much time. The death toll is unimaginable. People fight like rabid wolves for food and water.
We have run out of a supply of peat. The power plant no longer supplies energy to fuel the city. There is no law here anymore. We don't even know if there is a world outside of this hell.
Me and this small band of people I am with lack an insigne. We are defenseless and without food.

The Battle of ideals shall ensue.
The insigne are symbols that occur on random locations of the human body that invokes a persons unique abilities. The ability is determined through the persons major characteristics.
While rare, Insigne do appear on the flesh of animals.
There is, in the lore, no known cause for the dense fog. It is assumed that it is the cause for most all of the events.
Taide was formed before the Fog appeared, but went unnoticed. Some people think that they prophesied the current events in Oulu.
The Plot will most likely develop through character development and action as the main objective is to find a solution and the cause may not be discovered in the rp depending on what choices are made.
Tell me if you are interested! I would love to hear your opinions and constructive criticism.
