I'm advertising in this thread for the rp I'm setting up in the Advanced section: http://roleplayerguild.com/showthrea...uls-and-Dreams
The setting takes place in 2015, several months after thousands of people worldwide began manifesting supernatural/magical abilities by manipulating the excess energy of their own souls. Others have begun killing others with these powers and devouring their souls, invigorating their own. Secret alliances and organizations are beginning to appear. The media is giving little coverage on this, and most of the mainstream world is doing everything possible to maintain the status quo.
Now, between the already collapsing political, economic and environmental situation, the world was already dreadnig a third world war. Now, in the midst of this escalating supernatural crisis, the world may very well enter a war unlike anything the world has ever seen at any moment.
The setting takes a lot from such series as Heroes and Darker than Black, with a few signature elements from fighting games like Mortal Kombat and Soul Calibur. Be assured, though;the focus is on story and character development, a dark and winding plot, not combat. Combat is only a part.
