Shin Megami Tensei II Reimagined IC
Several decades after the great destruction...
While cultivating the wilderness, fighting off packs of demons, and through countless deaths, humanity survived...
But people were not strong enough to survive without someone or something to cling to or to rely on...
The Messian religion preached the advent of a savior, gathered together believers and built a city on the site of the old cathedral...
The city came to be known as Tokyo Millennium.
* The Great Destruction of Tokyo
Thorman presses the button to launch nuclear-warhead-tipped ICBMs at Tokyo.
Global nuclear holocaust ensues.
* The Great Tokyo Flood
After the rebuilding of Tokyo, a tectonic plate movement of massive
proportions causes the ocean to rush into Tokyo and decimate the area
around it. Even after the waters receded, the suburbs of Tokyo remained
* Establishment of a Communal Cooperative Society
After the destruction of the Cathedral, a free society and government is
established, where anyone, both Mesian and Gaian alike, are welcomed warmly.
* Rise of the Mesian Church
Through political machinations, the Mesian Church takes over the government
and converts it to a theocracy.
* Gaian Revolt
Angry and opposed to the Mesian rise to power, several groups of Gaians start
riots, but they are quickly quelled by the Temple Knights.
* Completion of the Center
Using a huge amount of funding, a massive structure is built on the former
site of the Cathedral and named the "Center." The plan to create a municipal
government called "Millennium" is announced.
* Demonoids developed
In order to ensure a source of labor, artifical life forms called "Demonoids"
* Millennium nearly completed
Facilities designed to accommodate the people like Valhalla and the Factory
(a production/industrial area) are designed and nearly complete.
Entertainment facilities like the Casino are also built.
* Environmental Contamination
Through global warming, radioactive contamination, and the deterioration of
the ozone layer, most of the world outside of Millennium is rendered
uninhabitable. Large numbers of people from around the world flock to
Millennium, as its environment is entirely self-contained.
* Temple Knights become Special Police Forces
After putting an end to several Gaian demonstrations and revolts, the Temple
Knights are evaluated by the Center and are promoted to Elite status. They
are declared the official police force of the city. Their increase in power
tightens the control the Center has on the rest of the city.
And the Messiah is born...
Those of you who played in my last SMT RP will note that character creation is exactly the same save for ONE aspect. When you choose your alignment, you're also choosing which faction your character belongs to at the start of the RP. Whether you stay like that or change over time is all up to you of course
Name: (If you choose Neutral as Alignment, you also have a Nickname that the audience calls you)
Appearance: (Written Description or Picture is ok)
Alignment: You choose from three different Alignments: Lawful, Neutral and Chaotic. This alignment only states your basic philosophy on life itself, not your ethics. In addition, your starting alignment also determines your starting position.
Praise be his name! You have been truly blessed in the eyes of the lord! You are one of the chosen few who has grown since childhood to maintain order and peace within this city as one of his devout Temple Knights. Weather it be most foul demons or tainted fugitives and heretics who would seek to ruin the peace and order the Center has worked so hard to maintain, you stand as beacons of hope for the citizens to stand beside for the day the lord descends upon you all to bring to his Thousand-Year Kingdom! So go forth, and spread his gospel through your actions and words!
Damn the city and damn the center! Those mindless slobs up above forced you under their clean and safe city to live in the blasted ruins of old Tokyo, just because they think you're some kind of heretic! There's barely anything to eat, survival is always on your mind and you'd sooner slit someone else's throat just fora drink of clean water. So what if you have to murder and steal from raiding the city? If they're so complacent in their slavery to their god, then they shouldn't be surprised when someone stronger comes along and kicks their asses! You are a Fugitive and you're damn proud of it.
The cheers! The adulation! The feel of victory! Who cares for the petty squabbles outside of the arena? You're a Gladiator Dammit! You care for nothing but to go out there and give it your all to fight against fellow gladiators and demons while all the citizens eyes are on you. You are like a celebrity! So many children see you as their personal heroes, men gain it all in one day and lose it all the next betting on you to win. And it's all for the greatest prize of all: the luxury of becoming a first class citizen and spend the rest of your days with all the rights and privileges given to you! So get back out there! You got another match coming right up!
Melee Weapon: (Since you start out in a position of combat no matter which you choose, you can pick any basic melee weapon of your choice. Just nothing over-powered for your first melee weapon)
Ranged Weapon:(Once more, NO GUNS TO START. Down the line you will get guns for this slot, but for now consider this slot empty until later.)
Personality: (At least one paragraph)
History: (At least one paragraph)
Ability: (Demon-Summoner or Magic-User)
This is the most important part of your character. Once you choose it, you're stuck with it.
Demon Summoning: You will have the ability to contract and hold up to four demons inside your COMP, with a maximum of two to be summoned to help you in battle. To start, you may choose any ONE demon from this list that you will receive as the RP goes on. For your first demon you MUST choose one from the list given under your alignment. Instead of figuring out what abilities your demon will have, simply say which demon you want and I'll let you know what abilities it carries, that way it's less work for you
Magic: Magic is a lot more useful then you may assume. One proper spell can take down a demon instantly or put a whole team out of commission if you have the right spell. You will get to choose three of the following spells to start with and gradually get more as the RP progresses.
Agi: Light fire damage to a single foe.
Bufu: Light ice damage to a single foe.
Zio: Light electrical damage to a single foe. Possible Shock Status.
Garu: Light wind damage to a single foe.
Zan: Light force damage to a single foe.
Dia: Recovers a single ally slightly.
Patora: Removes all abnormal status to a single ally
Taru-Kaja: Strength increase to all allies.
Maka-Kaja: Magic increase to all allies.
Doluminer: Chance to inflict sleep status to all foes
Sukunda: Lowers foes accuracy.
Trafuri: Guaranteed escape from battle.
Easy Copy/Paste Template
Name: Unknown, goes by the nickname "Fang"
Melee Weapon: Chinese Sword
(Frill is only for show, can be removed for real combat)
Ranged Weapon: None
Personality: Incredibly sure of himself to the point of narcissism. He lives and breaths the arena and goes in seeking nothing but victory. If he ever loses a match, it leads to him cooped up in his room for days beating himself up over how horrible he did. Yet the reason he is so devoted to this way of life is because he's known nothing else. As far as he knows, he was born in the arena and life outside was so much a great unknown to him. Not to mention being a Gladiator is all he feels he's good at, if anything he's scared to death about possibly winning the ultimate prize as he'd be like unto a oblivious child dropped on an alien world.
History: Was he abandoned by a irresponsible parent? Was an orphanage too full? Or was he just a runaway that didn't want to talk about where he came from?As far as Fang goes, everything beyond ten years ago is a complete enigma. Most people don't believe him when he says he doesn't remember his past life and figure he's on the run as a fugitive. And it just so happened he ended up in the bowels of the arena, forced to live there or once again be on the streets as some street rat then tossed down to the Underworld like the rest of the criminals. With no choice, Fang trained his body and mind to be the best Gladiator possible, so that he would not be thrown away and seen as something useless. Yet in the process of just trying to be useful, he just so happened to end up one of the top five Gladiators the Arena has this generation! Yet he knows any day now he just might win the prize and be forced to leave behind everything he knew as his home...
Ability: Demon Summoning
Garm: Venom Bite and Tara-Kuja
