"The Soiling of Old Glory" by Stanley Forman,
Boston Herald American, 1977 Pulitzer Prize Winner

TL;DR List
- GM's HeySeuss and AnnaBeth
- Up to four other players. We're trying to keep this a smaller group, so please be very sure you want to do this RP.
- Modern-Fantasy setting. 2013 United States, magic has returned.
- The return of magic is not a welcome event. In fact, people have freaked the hell out.
- Not Twilight or Harry Potter; this has darker political overtones because humans know about magic and various supernatural beings and are scared shitless.
- Meanwhile, the people with magical power don't know what's happening to them and are grappling with these sudden unexplained phenomena as well as the hatred of their neighbors.
- In the United States, the government starts rounding up people with magic in response to mass hysteria that percolates all the way up to the halls of power.
- By Christmas of 2012, animals and plants, places and things, start to emerge; energy nexuses, mythical beasts, spirits even. Coincidentally, that's around the time the Mayan calendar ends. Some people say it's the end of the world, the Mayans point out it's just the end of an age. Whose right?
- The characters will be forced to make some stark choices vis a vis retribution, justice, the law and nature.
- The characters are part of a small coven in Haye Township, Pennsylvania, a small town in the central part of the state near the Allegheny Mountains. They have assembled, as fellow Emergents, but are keeping their abilities a secret, even as the Federal Government hunts those like them fervently.

A man is a vessel of enormous stores of magical energy that grow the more he gains in strength. His biological father is, for lack of a better word, Death. Death is actually the perfect name for his father, the word "biological" isn't. However, Death and his Mother were given together in marriage, while Death met her and they had their union under another name. This old man was born in 1938, in Berlin, Germany, right before the second World War began. Although he is seventy six, he appears to be no more than his mid-forties. Reinhardt Schtauffen is a kind hearted, extremely spry old man who has many peculiar interests.

He is a master of poisons, embalming, medicines, ways of martial combat and assassination, among other things. When the mysterious events started recently, he found himself as strong and healthy as he was during the prime of his life. He also could somehow know if someone was evil good, or anything between just by sensing their presence. He may also exact powers on the dead bodies he discovers in order to rise them as skeletal, or ghoulish servants, and sometimes he can create "Frankenstein" monsters for more difficult tasks.

He was blackmailed by a Corporate Executive Officer he worked for so he would act as his assassin. Reinhardt was in a deep wilderness area, which had blocked out any satellite imagery through mysterious means, and prevented any outside communications or electronics. Knowing this, Reinhardt easily took down all his boss'es thugs and hunted him down as he ran for his life into the woods.

I think I'm interested. I can definitely see what some other countries might do as well. Dictatorships and communism might well try weaponizing emergents and using them to conquer other countries.

That's absolutely true that they will attempt it. At the same time, there is the return of spirits and the various magical beasts out there that have just about everyone hunkering down. Governments can scheme, but it's not quite that easy in the long run.

Aah.. I can imagine it. A mythical dragon appearing and laying waste to a huge portion of a city before finally being felled by a weapon strong enough to pierce its hide.

I placed my interest in this idea before, but at the time personal matters prioritized my time and I couldn't make room for a CS. But now that everything's settled my interest in this is set in stone, and I've already got some ideas for a character. ^^

<Sheets>
<Chat>
<OOC>

I am using the old threads, since that RP was never started -- it happened during my hospitalization problems and I just shut down the RP due to a lack of sheets.

If anyone is checking, this RP started, but we had people duck out so we have room for a couple more.

Still seeking others! We're not too far along, so it'd be super easy for anyone to jump in. c:
