"A long, long time ago, we gods came to this world. The world of you, our children, seeking excitement. And we decided that we would live here with you forever in the lower world. We decided to seal away our divine power, and enjoy life with all the hardship and inconvenience that it entails. We can offer you only one thing: the power to fight monsters, what we call our blessing. The children given this power become our servants, our familia."











"When you’re just starting out, put all your energy into surviving. No matter how pathetic you feel, or how people laugh at you, if you come back alive, you win.”


The grand city of Rezion. The city of adventurers. People across the land come seeking adventure, glory, wealth, and a place to call home. Authority of the city rests in the hands of the Guild, a organization headed by the powerful Izanagi familia. They do their best to maintain order as well as oversee the dungeon that lies at the heart of the city, the source of the city's prosperity. Those wishing to obtain a piece of that wealth first need to join one of the many familia that exist within the city, some more powerful than others. However, the dungeon is not for the soft of heart or the weak of will. The dungeon will challenge adventurers from the very first floor and it is not uncommon for new adventurers to meet their ends on the first few floors. Of course, the dungeon is not the only attraction within the city's walls. There exists a number of master artisans and craftsmen, musicians and actors, as well as doctors and inventors. The bounty of the dungeon provides for many, but at a great risk.

One of the the familias within Rezion is the Amaterasu Familia. Early in the city's history the familia was quite prominent and well-respected. However, as time passed the familia grew smaller and smaller as people drifted from the ideals the goddess championed until only one member was left: a wise and loyal adventurer by the name of Solome. Blindness and age had stopped him from venturing into the dungeon but he made it his mission to recruit new members into the familia that had given him everything. His efforts were not in vain as he managed to find promising, aspiring adventurers that had what it took to bring the familia back to greatness.

Time will only tell if these new adventurers can save the familia from ruin. First, they must survive the trials of the dungeon for it does not take pity on no one. The dungeon is even more dangerous than normal with reports of strange anomalies occurring on a more regular basis. It is a phenomenon that the even the top familias have yet to understand. No matter the circumstances, it is the destiny of adventures to venture into the depths of the dungeon. Through your struggles, you shall find the strength to persevere.

Welcome to Rezion, Adventurer.




First, thank you for taking the time to look at this interest check. This RP is an alternate universe take on the DanMachi series, also know as 'Is it Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?'. Players will starts as new adventurers recruited into the Amaterasu Familia and will have to work hard to increase their own power as well as the power of the Familia. As of now, there are only to be four spots for players in order to keep things more manageable for myself. I currently have the rough skeleton of the world written down but I'm waiting to see if people are interested.

Though I am not familiar with the series, it sounds fun, so please count me in.

I have a rudimentary understanding as well but I'd be willing to try and sling it up if you need more people.

I imagine that we're just a part of a japanese styled familia not that the setting itself is more japanese unless the dm says so.

@ERode

It's a mix with some Egyptian gods mixed in as well.

The current Familia so far are Amaterasu(Player's), Anubis, Athena, Baldur, Kagu-Tsuchi, Isis, Poseidon, Aphrodite, and Izanagi(Guild Familia).

These are the ones that will have an impact on the story at the moment.

So as for characters did you have some rules particular in mind (aside from the buildingblocks/lore of the world) do our characters need to have something or are there things that you don't want characters to have?
Or is it anything goes, provided you stick to the lines/rules of the world.
Did you intend different positions/jobs for our group or can we choose ourselves? And have we been approached already to join or did you plan to weave this in aswell through roleplay?

Right, and how much of the stat/RPG-shenanigans were you planning on inserting into this? Also, seeing how normally it takes a hell lot of time to go from one level to the next, are you going to employ timeskips, or are we all going to be starting at a higher level than 1?

I'll clarify more when I put up the base CS sheet, but there are a few exceptions and rules I'll say now. Any of the spirit races like the 'Undine' are not available. Everyone will be starting as fresh, level one adventurers however that doesn't mean that everyone has to have the same level of training. That will be up to you, but it won't give much power in the grand scheme of things. For the most part, as long as you don't break any lore/mechanics and are reasonable it should be fine. The start is going be tough. Jobs/Classes/Positions will be up to you. If you want to make medicine in your spare time, go for it. If you want to smith weapons, be my guest. The only thing that is set in stone is you must venture into the dungeon. The RP will start with everyone having been recruited. I'm on the fence whether everyone will be heading straight to the dungeon or having a meeting first with the goddess and later the guild.

@ERode
There is going to be a bit of RPG mechanics but its not going to be the focus. People will have stats, skills, funds, and abilities but its not going to be the focus. Its mostly to keep record of everyone's progress and check to see if what someone is trying to do will actually work. Like the in the series, stats will go up depending on how you fight in the dungeon. There probably will be a couple timeskips, but I will be employing a special skill like Bell's. Basically, the more of you that fight together in the dungeon the faster your stats ans skills will grow.

@Dog

You're in luck then :D

Great! Just be aware there are only going to be four slots open when it starts. I may open it later as things progress!

In other news, I have gotten down the major familias and a few npcs in each.

How will applications be handled? First come, first served?

I think that would be the best way. If one of the first four jumps out, then their spot goes to the next in line. After the rp starts and if I open it up to more people, it would be whoever submits a CS first.

It seems like you already have enough players, but I'll post my interest in case a spot gets open.
