"Have I not (quoth he) good cause to weep, that being as there are an infinite number of worlds, I am not yet the lord of one?"
-On Tranquility of the Mind




What challenge remains for those that have mastered their world?

Every threat destroyed, every rival beaten, every secret learned, every treasure hoarded?

At the pinnacle of power, with only the heavens themselves still above?

There are those content to rule but a single world as a god or king. You are not content.

You took it upon yourself to break into heaven, to kill the gods and topple their thrones.

But you weren't the first, and you won't be the last.

Heaven is overrun with broken heroes and mad gods, and the lust for blood, gold, control, and power runs high.

Will you join the war in Heaven and fight to carve out a piece of Creation for your own?

Will you protect the world that bore you from the malevolent forces beyond the veil of reality?

Will you fight, or will you die like a dog?

Choose now: be you peasant, king, or god?














tl;dr

What's the worst part about breaking into heaven to kill god and topple his throne? Finding out you're the last guy to break into heaven to kill god and topple his throne.

The concept is this: you play as the endgame hero from your "world." You finished the quest, beat the final boss, got all the treasure in the world. Player characters in this game have managed to go beyond that, achieving some sort of ascended state, enlightenment, or sheer scientific prowess, and have fully escaped from their own universe.

What they find is Heaven, but not what they were expecting. The place between worlds has long been populated by a thousand heroes from a thousand worlds, New Gods, who have made the multiverse their playground and battlefield in equal, infinite measure. Their attempts at a chaotic, squabbling multiversal society has been held in a tenuous peace, but with the disappearance of the First, the Aeon King, the denizens of Heaven have fallen to squabbling amongst themselves for control.

This leaves you, the player, in the midst of the struggle. Are you a fresh-faced New God, blade still wet with the blood of mortal foes, ready to face new, immortal opponents? Or are you a long-reigning god of the celestial order, determined to retain order in your portioned corner of the multiverse? The options are literally limitless.

And as ever, please, comments, questions, concerns.

I am interested.

@Kassarock There she is. This should work better, sort of a prelude to the Second Conquest as it were.

@King Cosmos Tell me more!

I'll be bringing back the spirit devourer that I submitted the last time you did an RP like this. I didn't recognise your name at first, but yeah I'll be trying to make her work again.

@King Cosmos I'll have to go back and look but consider this a fresh start. New game, new Heaven, new lease on life.

@Dark Cloud Potentially but to be perfectly honest with you the transphobic posturing I've seen you doing on this site is making me hesitant to bring you on as a player.

@Thatguyinastore Care to share any of your ideas?
1x Thank Thank

@Dead Cruiser Since when have I done that? Not quite sure what you mean. But I'll respect your hesitation, even if I'm not even remotely aware of what you even mean. I think I'll pass then, my apologies for whatever I said.


Edit:
Looking through my posts & the few status updates I post I don't see what you mean honestly, I don't appreciate the idea you think I've been speaking that way. I know and am friends with a few trans individuals, now that doesn't mean I'm saying that the fact I have friends who are trans is in any way an excuse but I'm trying to say that I don't tell other people how to live their lives.

I'm happy that they are being true to themselves, everyone should try to strive to be content with who they are. Anyhow that's my opinion and I just wanted to make that clear. I wish you luck in this new endeavor and thank you for your past work as a GM.

@trenenp Is there a character concept you have in mind?

I was thinking about making a character named Malice who was from a magenta and gold planet called Virgil which means flourishing. He's the child of that world's Zeus and Gaia. But when he was born Zeus wanted to kill him because he knew that one of his newer children would overthrow him. Gaia, Hera, Artemis, and other gods pleaded for Zeus to let him live but he did care so, Gaia, Hera, and Athena got together because they felt Zeus' time was up. The three goddesses came together and started to bless Malice with different powers so he could overthrow his father and become The Fourth Ruler of The Sky.

I just have a few ideas for characters floating around, but nothing concrete yet. I’ll probably have a more solid idea once the proper sign-up thread goes live.

I'll say that I'm also interested. It's a unique concept to me for sure.

@Dark Cloud If it matters to you we can discuss it in private, but if it's all the same to you I think we can let the topic lie.

@trenenp I'd rather if we left gods from real-world mythologies alone, I don't want any copies of the Earth in this game. That aside, Malice sounds rather passive in his own story; what would give him the drive to go even further beyond what he already believes to be the throne of heaven?

@Thatguyinastore I'd be happy to answer any questions you have in the meantime, or help you workshop ideas.

@FollowthePath@j8cob Same for you as well.

@Dead Cruiser I'm comfortable just leaving the matter as is, thank you. Although I very much do not understand (because I just came back nearly a week ago), so if ever you wish to explain I won't stop you.

Is there any limitations on what kind of universe a character can hail from? Is it specifically fantasy-only?
