Soooo, I'm just throwing this idea out there. Here is the background/setting/story on it. If anyone is interested, I've made a super simple form to fill out for your character, and later I'll make the IC. Depending on interest gained.
Please ask questions, point out anything that doesn't make sense, or add an idea. I kinda want this one to be pretty open with your imagination - but lets stick around the setting I'm providing.
Which is The Sanctuary.

-----------------------------------------------


STORY/BACKGROUND -
> September 23rd, 2030, is when the attack happened.
> It has been over 100 years since the mass fallout of humanity. A majority of buildings have crumbled to pieces, mother nature has taken claim and spread herself vastly over the earth. Filling it with vibrant colors, essentially showing off what she has reclaimed as rightfully hers. Highways have cracked and filled with weeds. This is the Apocalypse. These days, its a rarity finding processed/canned food that is still consumable. The once bustling citie now only sound of animal calls, instead of cars - as they have filled the cities and took back their land as well. Some of the past has survived in the larger cities, leaving the wandering youth to question what life was like before this apocalyptic nightmare life they know now.
> Oh right. Humanity's mass fallout is due to multiple giant portals opening above every continent, they stayed in the sky for hours. An ominous black-purple swirl, that left the whole world screaming in terror. A lot of scientists called it a natural phenomenon - which was only to soothe the masses. But in reality, after 4 hours - demons flooded from the portal. Thousands came and slaughtered 70% of the world's population in the matter of 2 hours. As to why they suddenly left in the middle of mass hysteria - is completely unknown. Many who have survived - think it is because they gorged enough and went home, others believe it is because the portal closed and demons had a limited time to wreak havoc - so they did, others just still pray to some God begging, and pleading for their questions to be answered.
> The portal has been closed for over 100 years, but demons still remain on earth. Some are rather easy to kill, others you want to hide from. Some demons look like science experiments gone wrong, animals fused together in horrific ways. Other demons look human-like, but there is still something prominent that shows they are not human at all (floating, teeth, horns, skin discoloration, unable to speak human, etc). There are even some demons who grow the faces of those they've eaten on their bodies - appearing more and more bulbous as they consume more - becoming slow moving.  But the worse ones, are the ones whose power enables them to completely change their appearance to that of a human - they're the only demon to have a common name by every lone human survivor - a Shape Shifter.
> As the years have passed, humans have began to thrive in this demon infested world. But the demons are almost far and few in between it seems. Sometimes you'll run into a cluster, other times you wont see one for months. But it is very certain, they outnumber the humans. This world is always on edge, but one thing has been learned - to not make loud noises. They will find you if they are near. Though, there have been tales of a few humans have come across demons that have noticed their existence and left them alone. Those humans we call lucky. As to why some demons ignore humans? Once again, unknown. They seem to almost co-exist, but no human cares to stick around long enough to see how long that idea is possible for.
>  Humans have reproduced in the 100 years since the attack on humanity. There have been children born through-out the apocalypse. Many humans have banded together in tribes/communities to sustain themselves and keep the human race alive. Some people still wander alone - thinking they're the last remaining human since they haven't seen a soul in so many years.
> Half breeds (mutts) have been outcasted from many communities. They can be distinguished easily by a non-human physical feature. Though, there have been some who look just like a normal human. But the thing with half-breeds, is they're typically killed upon the realization of what they are. Usually the parents are slaughtered as well, depending if the birth was in a community. But, for those Half-breeds that are around, they tend to try to conceal what they really are - unless they have a distaste for the human race themselves.
> Over the 100 years, many communities have sustained themselves, some have been wiped out. But there is one that has seemed to of stood the test of time, and many demons are not very happy about this. They seem to now see it as a challenge to try and infiltrate it and slaughter what's inside.

SETTING -

~ The Mountain Village called The Sanctuary.
~ This village is carved into the side of the mountain, after 100 years there are vast tunnels, and over 150 inhabitants. There is only one entrance that is located near a waterfall at the base. The spray of water hitting the lake beneath causes the entrance to appear almost hidden. There is a gate located higher up to help people find their way towards Sanctuary.
~ The fresh mountain water also flows into the mountain and into a giant reservoir that is located in the center of this mountain carved village inside. The Reservoir is where the community shower/bath house is, a lot of people mainly swim in the smaller reservoir - and shower in the small waterfalls that falls through the ceiling on the sides - man-made small stalls made of adobe have been constructed for those who want privacy.
~ When approaching the Sanctuary, there is a small village outside the tunnel leading in. This mainly the shops, bar, guard houses. The Sanctuary has two levels. The Main & Lower Level. On the Main Floor to the North are the King/Queen chambers.
-Main floor East - is the kitchen and dining hall. The kitchen serves Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner for everyone, but also provides fires for those who have caught their own food, this cavern is the only one that ventilates. Main Floor West - is training grounds, and classrooms.  And the Main Floor South - is Guard chambers, and supply rooms. The Entrance is to the south as well on the Main floor. The center of this is the community hall, which is basically like a small gathering hall - some village meetings are held here.
-On the Lower Level, is the Reservoir, and the rooms for all the inhabitants - which have been carved over the years to accommodate family size.  Since there is only 1 entrance, it is guarded 24/7 - and hasn't been infiltrated by demons in 40+ years. Outside of the entrance, around the mountain are gardens, that are tended to by those chosen by the Kings Advisors.
~ It is a community where everyone has a job, collecting water, tending to the gardens, cooking, cleaning, training the youth, hunting, guarding, foraging from cities - all chosen by the Kings Advisors.
~ As stated above, The Sanctuary has stood the test of time - but recently has been attacked numerous times. As told by one demon,  who surprisingly spoke human, that recently attacked - "more attacks are to follow, it is a goal to destroy this mountain". So now The Sanctuary has been on high alert, wondering when a possible horde will attack. It appears though that many of the blood-thirsty demons get too excited and attack alone - leaving them to fail.
~ The Sanctuary has now seen a rise of villages staying inside the mountain - due to fear of going outside in the small gated village and being attacked. Though, many haven't let the attacks affect their daily lives and some beggars still set up shop outside.
~ There is a current leader of The Sanctuary, his name is King Dominick. He has reigned as ruler for the past 20 years, and many praise him. He is a noble man, but is also starting to reach the end of his life. He is about 52, and is soon looking to pass his ruling off. He has 3 Advisors; Tomuk - a man in his late 30s, usually grumpy and tempermental. Dayna - A young woman in her late 20's, she is the refreshing face of the three and puts her heart into her choices. And then there is Goran - He is also in his late 20's, and is also the Gaurd's/Warriors Commander. So you can make a judgement of his personality (headstrong).


RULES -
+ In this RP, you can be a shape-shifter, a mutt (halfbreed), or a straight up human! PLEASE, lets not all be demons though -
+ Demons are immortal. Once killed they're just exiled back to their home world. Mutts (halfbreeds) are conceived from a demon parent, and human parent. A mutts life expectancy is unknown. Humans, life expectancy in this world now is down to 60.
+ For looks, lets use an anime/drawn reference. I debated this for a while and in the case of those trying to find a look for their demon - I think that'd be easier.
+ This is honestly an anything kinda goes RP. Powers aren't exactly limited - just don't act all Godly. There are demons obviously of different strengths & ranks, you can decide from there. Since, in a human perspective - not much is known about Demons
+ A lot of knowledge has become destroyed and lost over 100 years. It is essentially almost a medieval time setting. No current technology or luxuries obviously.
+ You character can be from another village, or a lone traveler, or what have you. But the story is going to focus on the increase of attacks to The Sanctuary, and where your character falls into play with that is up to you.
+ You can have interactions with the King, or shit if you wanna play the King, PM me.
+ If you have any ideas, feel free to PM me.
+ No killing other characters without permission
+ No God Modding
+ What I say, Goes.
+ No arguing in OOC

I'm actually highly fascinated. Uggggh. I have so many RPs ongoing, so I can't put down definite interest, but this is an absolutely brilliant concept! I would love to see it kick off.
