Crossing the Veil (IC)
Death. It's almost as old as life. Everybody dies eventually. Death is everywhere. Every day there are new germs, toxins, injuries, illnesses and catastrophes for us to face. The fact we survive at all is miraculous.
On the other side of death stand the Reapers. Reapers used to be human, then death came knocking, taking those who dies in the most gruesome, bloody or downright horrific manners to their boss, Lou.
Lou was the first Reaper. He was doing a great job until humanity spread too wide for him to continue to work alone. Therefore, he began recruiting others to be Reapers. As the ages changed, the cycle of Reapers did as well.
Lou no longer Reaps but watches the Reapers like the owner of a company. They report to him and bring souls for other possible Reapers.
Working alongside the Reapers are Seers, people who can gaze through the veil between the world of the living and the realm of the dead, and Witches, humans who can utilize Reaper abilities. Both types were visited by Lou because they were stillbirths or infant deaths. Seers lost their physical sight and was granted life and sight into the spiritual realm instead as well as the ability to create weak barriers for short periods of time while Witches grow without a limb or some other physical deformity.
Reapers, when chosen by Lou, appear in a white room. In the room is a man in a red suit with a black tie, slicked back hair and lively blue eyes. He is Lou.
This is going to be an action-adventure-drama RP that will turn out like a cross between RIPD, Dead Like Me and Bleach. I have many ideas for plot but most of the story will be made by the players. I will ONLY play Lou and big enemies.
Pendant: The Pendant is similar to a Police Officer's badge. It allows other Reapers, Seers and Mages to see their rank, class and team. Reapers' Cloaks reside inside the Pendant.
Cloak: The Cloak gives Reapers the abilities to become invisible, pass through solid objects and flight. These are not granted until Rank V.
Vessel: Each Reaper died with something in their hands. Some of these items were hollow, able to hold other objects, etc. These became Vessels. Vessels hold souls and allow Reapers to help others to pass to Lou.
Enemies the Reaper teams will be facing will include, but is not limited to, Demons, Angels, Rogue Reapers, Corrupt Souls and half-breeds of all sorts.
Sages and Mages can use 1 of 3 types of Reaper Magick. First, there are Death Sages/Mages. They use really strong spells, most of which take quite a bit of preparation. Then there are Pumpkin Sages/Mages. They use quick, not as strong spells, mostly for distracting or killing minor enemies. Then there's the Light Sages/Mages, healers and buffers, the ones who make their allies stronger.
Also, Seers can create Barriers to protect themselves and see hidden enemies. Not only are they useful, they are necessary for any team.
