A black void.

A table.

A man.


Before you sits a man, a mask of Comedy and Tragedy adorns and concealing the face as bright purple eyes shine from beneath the shadow cast. Before him lays a paper, a contract. No words are spoken. Not yet.

A white-gloved hand slides the contract to you, a small feather decends down to settle on the yellowed page.

"Now is the time to make a choice. Read carefully. Once chosen, there is no going back."

The contract is simple.

My life is my own, my actions mine to be accounted.

I understand that conciousness is a gift, mirrored in others and beyond.

For thyne art I, I art thou. In thought and heart, may our burdens be shared.

Sign thy name.


Afterimages


Reality has two sides to it, the normal 'real' world, and the Alter world. Just like everyone has dark sides, the worlds are the same, yet fundamentally different. The Alter World houses mirror images of people and structures of the real world, but as negative emotion and fear incarnated into monstrous creatures... This place has always existed, hidden behind the veil of ignorance in which humanity places itself. 4 young people are drawn into this world, bound by a mysterious contract signed in a dream that felt too real. Led by their other selves, their Afterimages, the lines between what is hidden and what is true reality are blurred, in a mission to save reality from itself.

Plot:

Neo Tokyo is a sprawling Japanese city and a hotspot of negative thoughts and emotions. Suicide rates have been on the rise recently for unknown reasons with almost no pattern or apparent reason why. Close friends of the most recent victims had said that they had gone crazy, babbling about an alternate reality and a figure called The Masked Man or some similar moniker. All the victims were alumni or current students of シルバーシェード (Shirubashedo) Academy, a community college near the Shinjuku District.

Lore:










This includes themes of suicide, self-harm, brutal deaths, and a grimdark alternate reality.

Let me know if you guys have an immediate desire for a particular Element or Inclination, I don't know what I want yet so I can avoid choosing the same one as you two if you already have ideas.

I'm finding myself pretty drawn to the idea of either a heat/order, or light/chaos setup for my character 🤔

@EchoWolff When we fill out our cs should we go ahead and post it in characters right away, or do you want us to share it here in ooc first to be approved before being moved there?

I would rather have a look at it first, clear up any possible confusion before it heads into the Characters tab if that's alright

Decided my favorite Inclination for each Element:

Heat/Peace
Cold/War
Light/War
Dark/Order

As you can see, I like characters with a lot of inner conflict.

@EchoWolff Can I get an example of what constitutes a small ability so that I can make sure I'm staying in scale?

Well, using the combinations that you gave me, I'll make you examples of Artes that could be used. These are just ideas, but you can use/customize them if you wish!

Heat/Peace
Heat Up - Bolsters the body to enhance its physical capabilities for the user or a designated target.

Cold/War
Cold Shoulder - Create small shockwaves of Cold energy within a close range of the user.

Light/War
Minor Smite - Infuse a normal weapon with small amounts of Soule Energy to make it more effective against Mirror Creatures.

Dark/Order
Shadow's Hand - Allow control of a small item or weapon without the need to physically wield it.


@Kronshi Hope this is helpful!

So for me I could do something like, say

Heat/Order
  • Rising Heat - Sense subtle shifts in air and surrounding energies to predict how an enemy plans to move
  • Word of Passion - Lace spoken words with an almost hypnotic element, willing the listener to comply
  • Ember - When reduced to a weakened state, gain a "second wind"; state of blind rage, almost feral


or

Light/Chaos
  • Seed of Truth - Influence self and others through spoken claims, causing fiction to become a reality to a minor extent
  • Dawn Thy Mask - Temporarily "slip" from the perception of others behind short bursts of soule energy
  • Discordance - Release a minor shockwave of soule energy through a chilling cackle

Are we limited to a single character, or could we make a couple, because I like both sets of powers that I came up with and it's hard to decide, though I will if needed

I would say stick with one character for now, and see where another one could fit down the line

@Baphomini I'm between Cold/War and Dark/Order at this point. Let me know if you're going Heat/Order or not because that would lock out Dark/Order since I'm aiming to avoid duplicates with my character.

@Kronshi I decided on the Heat/Order combination because it was my initial interest

@EchoWolff

Should finish my character by tomorrow, going with Cold/War since Baph is going with Heat/Order. But I wanted to run my ideas for my Artes by you before I finished.

  • Predation: Targets a single enemy and marks them with a small icicle growing on their shoulder or closest facsimile to one. Fubuki's Mirror Artes are more effective against his chosen prey.
  • Chilling Howl: Those who hear the howl become fearful of Fubuki, weakening their attacks against him. If his chosen prey hears and is objectively weaker than him, they may become frozen in place out of fear.
  • Shatter: Channels a large amount of Cold Soule Energy into an all-or-nothing melee attack. Hit or Miss, Artes can no longer be used until Fubuki rests. This leaves him with only his basic bites, claws, and kicks to defend himself.
