Cold.

You felt yourself drifting, floating, an endless twilight lit void. Moments of your life playing endlessly on repeat like a broken record before you. Accomplishments, defeat, despair, sadness, happiness...were you married to the love of your life? Watching your children grow? Perhaps you forwent those things in favor of a career, or money. Maybe you were ended far too soon before your time. Confusion momentarily besets you. Where did you get here? Were you not at home? Perhaps spending time out? A sudden, sharp pain hits you. The memories move faster, culminating into a single, painful, cracked image.

Ah.

You died.

Perhaps it was a horrid accident. Maybe you died peacefully in your sleep. So was this death? What they called seeing your life flashing before your eyes? It was oddly peaceful. You tried moving, but did you even have a body? You tried breathing, yet you could not. You had no need of it. At least your eyes worked. Probably.

Suddenly, gravity worked again.

The memories vanished into the ether. You slammed into the ground. Was it ground? There was definitely a solid of some sort beneath you, yet there was nothing but the blackness of night beneath you and the light of day above. A gentle, warm breeze follows and for a moment you almost feel like your being cradled by a warm embrace in this cold, vast, nothing.

"Another one, hm? Lets see..." A voice reaches you. The ground beneath you ripples like water as footsteps echo in the silence. Something touches either side of your face, as though someone was holding you gently. Your vision is blessed by the sight of another. Long, dark colored hair, luminescent blue eyes upon pale flesh. Yet you could still not speak. Somehow, you felt vulnerable. As though every secret, every lie, every facet of your life had been laid bare.

"Ah...You'll do. Yes, quite nicely, I think." You were released, but the comforting presence hadn't left yet, and movement still escaped you. "I do not have much time before the other finds my meddling, so I shall keep things brief. My name, affiliation, and status are all unimportant. In short, I am a Goddess, and I am here with an offer to save you from oblivion."

The twilit void rippled, a moon slowly edging into your vision, filling the twilight with the gentle light of the moon.

"Well...not really an offer. You don't really get a say in it, fufu. I'm plucking you from your world, and throwing you into another. Ah-ah, don't think your being a hero or some great, powerful summoned hero. No no, nothing like that. You'll have to work for your power, at least a little." A pause, as the moon rose, so too did the warmth fade from both this goddess words.

A gentle rain started to fall.

"That said, I'd be rather distressed if you died before you did anything, so I will be helping a little. I've already given you a new body! My finest work yet, if I do say so. I've also taken the liberty of drawing out your previous' life accomplishments and giving you a very unique ability!" The sides of your face were grabbed once again, but far were they from warm and gentle as before. Stern. Commanding. "What do I want? Simple. This world is dead. I want you to rebuild it. The people, humans, demons, and everyone else are scattered. Living in sheltered communities on this dead, frozen world. They have no future, really. Either hunted by the Elder Beasts that roam the wastes, forced to worship them for protection, killing each other for limited resources-"

The sound of cracking glass. The moon was draped in red. Cracks formed across its surface like a mirror.

"Hmph...less time than I would like. I will be putting you in a relatively safe place with others. You can find weapons, knowledge, and other things there that could help you - but do not linger. The guardian of that place will find you, and it will kill you, and I will not help once you are there."

The sound of rushing waters filled your ears, and you could feel the goddess presence fading. The world began turning, swirling and rushing around you as you found yourself being pulled downwards. Your senses started to return. Water filled your lungs. You tried swimming, but the tide was too much, the water too heavy and you sank, deeper, deeper, into the void below...


And so, here we are.

The stage has been set.

The frigid air trembles with anticipation.

So let us go over my only ground rules first, my little reincarnators.




Rules:
1. I have very few, and really, most are guidelines, but If nothing else, read this one. It is likely the most important rule here. In regards to combat - PvE should be simple enough. You do not get to decide whether or not you hit an enemy - or if your attempt at something was successful or not. I will be handling that and writing the narrative to describe how exactly you fare. Now, inevitably, especially in later stages, PvP is likely going to be a thing. At some point, this will likely cause some contention. Ideally, I'd be happy enough to let you all resolve things between yourselves, in a 1 on 1 scenario though I will step in if needed.

That said, eventually there is a good chance of an army controlled by you, clashing with an army controlled by another. I, will be determining overall who's armies successful here. I will be willing to listen to suggestions and concerns should you not like my verdict, and potentially change things...but my decision is ultimately final. If you still don't like my ruling after some discussion...well, I'm sorry but that's just the way it is.

2. I will be posting once every week after the IC goes live at the latest. I will of course be giving some leeway to those who need it or give me a proper reason. I understand people get busy and such, but I'd like this to keep moving at a GM post per week at the minimum. Faster, should everyone post sooner. I'll be pretty lenient, and worst case scenario I'll just assume your character did nothing that round.

...and that's it, really! Can't think of anything else important right now. Here's a discord link for you all. No need to join if you don't want, but I'm usually active there 90% of the day so its the easiest place to reach me.



Now get your CS's in so I can start planning all of your tragic deaths glorious path to power!~

@VitaVitaAR
As discussed, your ability is being actual Nobbu. Feel free to move to the Char Tab.

"Aaaah, its her-ah what do I-

ahem...sorry. I was distracted. Yes. Nothing indecent at all. A pleasure to meet you, after all this time. You may not remember it, but I took ~very~ good care of you. Ahem, getting off topic again. Unfortunately as I wanted to preserve you in the most pristine way I could, so your body is a bit older model. Its affinity for supernatural feats are quite low, and perhaps its muscles aren't quite right but...fufu, you're Oda Nobunaga. I look forward to seeing your progress.


@PKMNB0Y
Fluffy tails accepted!~
"A scholar, hmm? History is always good to know, lest you run the mistake of repeating past sins. Discovering this worlds history...I wonder what you'd do with it if you discovered it? Be in awe? Amazed? Despair? Maybe all of them? I think I know the perfect thing that you'll do well with. Go and rebuild, but do remember not to get to far ahead of your time. You should know what happens to those who do from your own world, hm?"

Ability gained: Historia Technologica
The goddess has complied every single technological advancement humanity has made up until the point you died. Theoretically, you can call upon this knowledge whenever you desire...should it allow you too. The world follows certain laws. A certain undeniable rhythm. You can not know what you have not interacted with, or spent some time learning on your own. You will start with three branches. You will need to figure out how to 'Unlock' more of them yourself. However, do keep in mind - Some materials here will be as alien to your world as you are to this world.

Abilities gained:
Medicine - You can tell if a plant has medicinal properties or not. Yet for now, you can not determine what those are upon sight alone.

Material Science - At a glance, you can tell what a minerals and are and roughly how decent they would be at performing a certain task. You however, do not know exactly how to forge or implement them yourself quite yet.

Agricultural Science - You know rudimentary agricultural and cultivation techniques and how to achieve a decent crop yield without knowing too much else about the surrounding environment or what plants would grow well in what areas.

"I...are you sure this is what you want, my little one? I understand you've had a hard life but...mhm, no, never mind. It takes all kinds to create a world. Just be careful you are not swallowed by that darkness you court...fufu, though I suppose such a world might make an interesting story. Reject your humanity then. Unite the monsters of this world and lets see what comes of it. A tragedy or a comedy? Whatever it will be, it will be entertaining, but I digress."

Monstrous Charm - Unlike what some people think, some people simply have a natural charm around them. Less how you speak, and more how you act. Your mana has turned into a force of will that marks you as...wrong.A passive ability that influences how others perceive you. Simple beasts will likely leave you alone, should you not antagonize them. Demons will see you as one of their own, and the intelligent Elder Beasts may decide to actually speak with you. Be warned, however, humans and their kin will view you with great suspicion and other races typically shunned will find you to be oddly compelling.

Oh my. Are you trying to appeal to certain desires of mine with that appearance? I'll have you know, I'm not so easily swayed, my cat-nip loving feline.

A fighter hm...I can't say I've ever been fond of such skills, but I suppose they do have their uses. Such strength and talent will serve you well, here. Just don't get in over your head, hm? I'd rather you not die from trying to say, 1v1 an Elder Beast. Still hmm...what to give you, what to give you...your body already has strength, you can build agility well enough...magical feats are a-hmmm...ah. Egypt, hm? I might be overstepping my domain, but I think you'll quite like this.


Ability gained: Suns Disciple
Wherever you go, the sun shines on your path. The sun illuminates you. Keeps you warm, and safe - and yet it burns. Burns you. Burns your foes. Burns everything. The sun of this world is not ruled by the goddess that bought you here. If you desire to strengthen it, seek them out yourself. As it is, you will steadily grow in physical power and endurance as the sun rises up until its peak, and steadily return to your normal strength as the sun falls, until night hits. At the moment, even during noon, you will gain only a minor boost to all physicals. Additionally, you have a minor affinity for Light-based magical feats.
Goddess note


And of course, should anyone have any questions or concerns about their skills, or if someone else is concerned about balance, do feel free to ask here or in the discord, hmhm~

Isidore

Isidore is normal on the outside and on the inside. His organs, though he hasn’t had a chance to get an X-ray scan, seem to be where they should be. He feels his heartbeat around the center-left portion of his torso, and he breathes through one nostril at a time. He stands at 5’11, and he weighs 121 lbs, which seems about right for his stature too. Everything seems normal, and yet, there’s still something that bothers him, that causes him to scratch at smooth skin with manicured nails.

Ah, that’s it. He is now normal, on the outside and on the inside.

Goals
Isidore doesn’t want everything in the world. He just wants anything he desired. Whether that meant being good or evil, kind or cruel, it matters not. With all the advantages granted onto him by the Goddess of another world, it would be spitting on his past self if he didn't achieve more than what he once had.


Abilities
Physical Conditioning
Your body is naturally tough, durable, and strong. The pinnacle of human physical strength, endurance, and agility. Keep training, and surely you can surpass even stronger beings.

Soul Flare
The ability to turn ones soul into a weapon itself. Needed for most basic magical feats. Channel the mana present in the air through your body to achieve great feats. Allows one to interact with supernatural things, and perceive things others may not.

Elf Roma accepted!

"A burgeoning politician, I see. Do you want me to be honest? I will be anyways. I hate scheming sorts like you. Reminds me of some rather unpleasant pasts. Always stabbing each other in the back. Theft. Destruction. Then all drowned in a deep, dark, sea. But such was their fate for their folly. I suppose I shouldn't judge too harshly, however. Such methods are always necessary to ensure a place remains running smoothly. I have juuuust the thing for you, but should you misuse it - heh, well no, I won't do anything. 'Tis not my place. Don't worry, it'll only hurt for a moment."

Ability Gained: Goddess' Eye
The Goddess has given you a prestigious blessing. Rejoice, mortal. The eye will allow you to see things about people and living targets they may not even realize about themselves. Status, general health, current disposition, abilities, special and other such information. There are other skills similar to this, but nothing will ever reach something of a realm this clearly divine. Use it wisely, and you could use words as effective as any weapon or use it to disable someone with as little conflict as possible. Additionally, you can see, interact, and discern things others can not. The invisible, ethereal, and intangible. Nothing in this world is hidden from your sight. Be warned however, you give off a faint divine stench. Be wary of those who contend with such beings and some abilities and blessings may make your visions obscured.
Goddess' Note


@ERode
Its late and my brain power is lowering so I have nothing quick-witted to say here so accepted.

"I knew someone like you, once. Instead of being trashed and bullied, he decided to be the one doing it himself. He rose to lead a nation, you know, in an effort to ensure people lived safely. He was eventually killed by a girl who was the opposite of everything he was because he took something from her. You have had a hard life,I apologize from pulling you from your well deserved rest, but a man of your determination is needed in this land."

Ability Gained: Undying Will
Your past life was hard. That is not something anyone can deny. Hard and stained with blood. Yet, you did not buckle. You were no saint, but nor were you a true devil. Using your blood money you never lost your path in order to help those from a similar situation as you, even if it were selfish reasons. Surely even in this life, you will face similar challenges and danger - you refuse to die before you achieve greatness. The more you are injured, the more your body responds to danger. Your skin hardens, natural armor grows across your body giving you impossibly high defense. But be warned - it does not heal you. Simply makes you harder to further injure and numbs pain. The shielding will wear off after about an hour.
Goddess' note


Totally not griffin Accepted
@Cu Chulainn

"Heh...hahahaha, oh aren't you just adorable. Playing god like this! Do humans have no end to their folly? You would think they'd learn after the first fool that attempted to do that failed miserably....hmhm, or no, perhaps they succeeded in getting what they wanted. Well, no matter. I should simply damn your pitiful soul to oblivion in your realm...but...color me curious as to what sort of tale you'd weave. Go, then. Lets see where your beliefs however shallow will lead you this time. I will be watching."

Ability gained: Humanities Scion
You truly love humanity, don't you? Rather than being naturally charming, you can instead bring out the best in others. Those who follow your orders, and those who truly believe in your path will find themselves filled with strength and determination to see it through. Encourage your followers to slay a beast? They will become stronger, faster, and determined to see it through. Encourage them to learn something? They'll have a clarity of purpose while they learn. But be warned - this only will work on humans and their kin that follow you and your beliefs. The more they believe, the stronger they will be. Surround yourself with like-minded individuals, and perhaps finally reach your supposed ascension.
Goddess' note





Alright, that's the final bit of accepting I'm doing tonight. I'll get to any more posted tomorrow. If anything needs clarification, do tell.~

@PaulHaynek
I'll save your CS and look over it, and supposing you do get in I'll already have an ability to go and everything.

Alright

It looks good enough, make sure you add both the two skills mentioned in the CS and this one to it before you add to the Char Tab

"A writer of sorts, hm? We have something in common, heh, so let me ask you. What is a hero, you think? Someone who saves lives? But what if saving a life comes as a cost to the entire world? Would you find a way to do both, however impossible? Or would you buckle and make a hard decision? But then you're not a hero, are you? You can't save everyone, but you can try. Just don't burn yourself out."

Ability gained: Healing prayer
Clasp your hands together and channel your entire being towards healing. This ability can heal nearly everything - curses, diseases, severe wounds, perhaps even more ethereal afflictions. It is however, extremely exhausting upon you to use. It can either work in a five meter radius, or via touch - with the touch method being less taxing to perform.
Goddess Note





And with that done

I shall begin working on the OP, and we'll likely be starting tomorrow night sometime! So get those CS's in so I can start planning a Shakespeare worthy tragedy wonderful tale for all of you.

Accepted - you got in juuuust in time, and I've already written you into the OP. Unfortunately due to time constraints and me quickly falling into snooze land, I've made your intro a bit on the smaller side.

"You led quite the peaceful life, hm. A peaceful, noble life. I wonder if you could see it. See this world, similar to yours. Skyscrapers. Bridges that span oceans. I can't. This world never had those things, and probably never will. A single foolish human with a selfish desire could easily send everyone back to square one. But go on then. Build. Lay the foundations for generations after yours."

Ability Gained: Foreman
Because of your past lifes accomplishments, you have been granted the ability to summon your own personal army of construction workers. They take an ethereal appearance and number from 5-20 depending on how many are needed for the job. These people do not tire, do not require rest or breaks and could theoretically stay active 24/7. However, they run on your own personal physical stamina and Magic ability. With proper planning, timing, and personal training, they could finish building a project that would have taken a month, in little over a week or so. All you have to do is give them direction and make sure you have your plans in hand. They are incapable of fighting, and may be disrupted with certain magical skills.
