(A RP Inspired by Princess Mononoke)

Long has the world been ruled by Spirits of nature, who take the forms of massive beasts. The Wolves of the Hunt. The Boars of the Feast. The Tigers of Kings. These great beings are worshiped by Man, venerated for what they offer, so long as they are kept in a good mood. They are not seen as simple spirits. No, they are seen, and venerated, as Gods. For so long has this been the way... but mankind is no longer content with this life. They wish to grow, to expand, to become something greater. And this... displeases the Spirits. They see Mankind as children, stumbling through the world, destroying as they grow, and so they must be kept in check.

Man is no longer content being seen as children, and are now ready to claim the world. Many do not agree, but a group called "The Church of Man" has come forward, promising the betterment of Mankind through more violent methods. They have grown quite the following, building a port settlement deep in the territory of the spirits. Freedom, Liberation, a world for Man. Humanity will become the Gods. No... they will create a world, where there are no more Gods.

Where this church came from, nobody really knows, but they will show the people that these are not Gods. They are nothing more than Beasts to be put down like any other. If they can kill one to begin with, it will surely show the people that this is the path, yes?

----------

So yeah, basically a monster hunting RP with the theme of, the things being hunted are powerful Spirits who are treated like Gods as most, but technology is booming and new weapons are giving humanity the ability to actually fight them.

The world includes some minor magic, like enchantments or the use of magical gems that can do many different things, and more holy magic, such as priests who have 'divine' magic to heal the wounded, or the knowledge of how to truly kill a spirit. Pistols, Rifles, and Canons are newly devleoped, and while not the most reliable of weapons, they can be improved through further engineering development.

The players will decide which 'targets' they want to go after, which come in the form of requests from the different guilds of the town. Completing requests will allow the guilds to expand, and bring about perks that the hunters can make use of. Wanting better weapons is going to drive the group to help out the Smithing Guild. Better firearms, the Engineering guild. There are multiple guilds with multiple requests, and ignoring some for too long may cause them to lose favor with the church, or to simply get the job done through other means.

I'll go into more detail if there's enough people interested, so let me know.

What's the technology like here? Is there anything that's going to be specific to our characters or is it everything for everyone (who can afford it)?
I mean, I am tentatively interested.

I'm sure this will certainly not backfire in a manner reminiscent of Shadow of the Colossus lmao

Tentatively interested, would like to see more details.

I'm interested, though it seems this interest check has been checking interests longer than the interest is interested in living as an interest.

Probably not anytime soon as a lot of things came up IRL after I made the interest check and it's been fairly important, and not the sort of thing that I'd want to start running a RP during as there's no telling how much time I actually have to dedicate to writing at the moment (And for the past month), and could have to drop at anytime.

At a time where I'm more available I would like to get something like this started though, yes.
