WAR OF THE THREE

GM: @TheWindel
Co-GM: @KoL


"We who have seen war, never stop seeing it...."
The Story So Far

It is said that war is the ultimate solution, the final escalation to conflict and strife. To many, the concept of war is the last resort in bringing the end of dark times and the beginning of a new age. A new order. But for those of a special bringing, war is all they know. Conflict breathes into their hearts, gives them life, and invigorates them to stand and fight. There are whispers, shadows of doubts, hushed through the ages of worlds describing one particular war that is waged forever. Never stopping, never ceasing, never once ending. Always conflict and forevermore. A war so massive and great, those enacted by beings of a lesser nature paled in comparison to the horrors of this conflict.

In a long ago time best forgotten, the Triumvirate ruled their domain in peace. Inhabiting the Nexus, a place to connect all worlds, the Triumvirate was given warning of a Great Danger, one so potent that it threatened to destroy their lives and civilization. The bonds of allegiance were strengthened in the face of this Great Danger and the factions who comprised of the Triumvirate were quick in their preparations for a war that might never come. In a streak of deep irony, the Triumvirate became poisoned with mistrust among one another. With the paranoia that comes with the end of days, so too is bred doubt and lies. Before long the Triumvirate's once held stability and peace between one another broke up, leaving behind three mighty factions to war with one another.

What was intended to be the greatest army in the cosmos was now reduced to civil war among each other. The conflict continue to roar across space and time, ripping apart whole dimensions and creating new ones in their place. The heavens are burning, the lands are sinking, and the once proud coalition that was the Triumvirate finds itself standing divided. And the Great Danger looms ever closer. With each battle, each victory and defeat, the final annihilation of everyone creeps more and more into the heart of the never ending war.
Information

The RP
Greetings one and all. As the brief lore section may have indicated, this is a war RP between Angel, Demon, and Machine. You as the Player can choose between these three factions and do battle for the glory of your allegiance, all while fighting to ensure your faction becomes the dominant leader of the fragmented Triumvirate. While this RP will mostly be driven through Player direction and choices, there will be a linear story-line keeping things in check for the most part. Other than that, do what you will to win the war, as OOC communication between your fellow comrades in arms is encouraged. May the war front guide you in your endeavors.

The Nexus
The plane at which the factions of the Triumvirate co-exist and fight each other for dominance is a place known as the Nexus, a gateway between many other worlds and dimensions constantly mutating and changing its shape thanks to the chaotic forces brought in by the three factions. It's said that the Nexus is both the beginning and the end of all, inside the multiverse and at the same time never in one single place. The Nexus can be reached from many places on many different realities, be them as grand as an elaborate Gate of stone, built in honor of beings whose purpose is unknown, or even with a simple accidental gesture, like crossing the wrong door at the right time. However, none can reach it by mere luck, as the Nexus itself seems to choose who it'll allow inside its limitless boundaries which span forever on the ever shifting sea of chaos.

Most of the Nexus is covered in harsh and dangerous terrain, inhabited by beasts of legend and lore whose power threatens any who cross paths with them, making permanent settlement rare and far in between. There might be some who are able to brave this land on their own, but those would be only the ones worthy of the title of adventurers and heroes, exploring mysteries of infinite wonder from countless worlds that have been dragged in by the Nexus' very will. Among those settlements, the domains of the three factions are the ones that withstand the most, each of their mighty capitals being a beacon of power whose purpose is to serve as Headquarters and Castles, bearing each factions banner high, until it falls prey to the attacks of its enemies... that is, if that's ever going to happen.

Special Roles
Special Roles are considered types of characters with positions of power within their faction such as Generals, Commanders, Gods and Goddesses, Demon Lords, Machine Overlords, etc. If you have interest in one of these Special Roles, please contact the GMs and send your CS through a PM. The GMs will then evaluate your CS and deem it either fitting or lacking to fulfill a Special Role. This is not a first come first serve deal; only the CSs that we feel fit the Special Role will receive them. Only characters with Special Roles will have the possibility of unlocking their Eyes and Whole.

The Eyes and the Whole
It is said that those with hearts, minds, and souls of special purpose and value are able to unlock their true potential and hidden talent. Thus, the Eyes and Whole are considered gifts from the Creator, able to change the very battlefield of which their user stands on. The Eyes come in two colorations; gold and silver.

Gold Eyes are said to manifest destruction itself, able to rend apart any foe with raw, unrestrained force. With Golden Eyes, one is able to unlock their Whole in the form of Creatio, a state of being that coats the user in primordial energies and gifts them rampant power. But with strength comes a lack of control and understanding, threatening to turn the user into a mad beast forever.

Silver Eyes are to to manifest creation itself, able to craft and make into shape various tools and weapons with great ease and care. With Silver Eyes, one is able to unlock their Whole in the form of Gestalt, a state of being that coats the user in a mighty set of armor, often of a knight's motif which grants absolute defense. But with lack of strength comes lack of definitive power to defeat one's enemies.
Factions

The Angels of Heaven

Believing themselves to be the greatest of the Triumvirate, those gathered under the banner of Heaven are beacons of divine splendor. To look on even the most meager of angels is to be blinded by their radiance. Their every breath is made with assurance they are the best to drink in the air, arrogant to the very core but also having the power to support these beliefs. Unlike the Demons who desire to warp and integrate others into their faction, the Angels prefer to "uplift" their lesser neighbors by instilling into them the righteousness of the Angelic rule and culture.

Angels have a narrow way of thinking and will be loathe to stray from it, taking all their values from a firmly established society that has not changed in all of recorded history. Reputation and influence are favored over merit or ingenuity among the Divine. Angels believe themselves to have been placed above all others, and thus are the ones with the slowest rate of progress that borders closely on stagnation, leaving them slow to adapt but having been blessed with the greatest inherent strength to their people.

Take back the skies with the holy light of the ancients and the powers of gods. Cast the land into holy prayer with your divine virtue while purging all who stand in your way in the name of your righteous cause. Summon forth Heaven's mighty beasts of power to lay ruin to your enemies while reminding the world down below the rightful place of the Angels in this Hierarchy. The Angels are greatly superior to Demons with their inherent powers and abilities, but find themselves more often than not weak to the cold, calculated weapons held in possession by the Machina.

The Machina of Man
Mankind's greatest strength has been their ability to overcome their own lack of natural features, such as claws, gills, or wings, through the creation of tools. With every challenge, humanity sharpens their blades and develops new and often unexpected ways of overcoming adversity. Their predisposition towards violence and factional divisions has kept their development constantly progressing upwards and outwards, though their was only so much to be done against themselves.

Enter the Nexus, a potential source of land and resources for Man to colonize, but was marred by the presence of two factions whose very existence incited mankind into actions. Faced with a heavenly host apathetic and uncaring for them, and legions of demons who only wished to corrupt and exploit them, there was no chance for peaceful coexistence and war was soon declared.

Yet this was a new conflict for a new age, and thus the Machina were manufactured. Machines of great prowess and strength, mankind struggled and toiled until at last their creations rivaled the powers of both Heaven and Hell. With the coming of the machines, the war spiraled into chaos, three powerful factions officially established in supposed conquest. Join the Machina and harness the power of superior technology at your hand. Create massive war machines and command the forces of an unyielding, never stopping legion of metal and will. The Machina are inherently stronger than Heaven's Angels, but weak to the corrosive forces of Hell's Demons.

The Demons of Hell
By their very nature, Demons are forces of corruption that warp what they come in contact with whether they wish to or not. Because of this, they are both inherently parasitic and symbiotic creatures who can only thrive when interacting with others that are not of a demonic nature. While humanity can progress isolated among themselves, Demons need outside stimulus and are thus constantly searching for new life, experiences, and ways of thought that are alien to their own.

They place a heavy emphasis on liberty and discovery, whether this being in the physical sense of finding new lands or on the cultural level of developing their own way of life that constantly expands with every person assimilated into the demonic ranks. However this doesn't mean that the Demons are weak physically. Lacking the limited life spans of Man, individual demons are as hardened in the fires of conflict as they are passionate and inquisitive.

Take control of the darkness within and unleash your new powers through hordes of Undead, Demon Lords, Succubi, and other unholy patrons of the world. Corrupt those who stand in your way and enslave them to fight for the glory of reigning Hell. Deal in dark arts and black magics to decimate the battlefield, corroding the morale of the Machina and snuffing out the light. Prove yourself for the glory of Hell and fight to drench the lands in fire and blood once more. The Demons are able to easily corrupt the forces of Machina but are instinctively weak to the holy forces of Heaven.

Rules
1. No Godmodding. Be reasonable when fighting IC (no auto hitting/ infinite dodging, no killing/ harming someone else's character without their permission).

2. Although there is no posting order, I strongly recommend that you wait at least two turns before posting again.

3. Relationships between characters are strongly encouraged but are not enforced. It just makes it more amusing to both me and my Co-GMs.

4. Discussion in the OOC is nice, but if there is prolonged heated argument, take it in the PMs. Otherwise, the GMs will solve the problem. Be cordial. Respect other people and you will be treated equally, not and we will have to ask you to leave, kindly.

5. RPers who "sporadically" lose interest or leave without saying anything are discouraged. I strongly suggest you either inform me or the Co-GMs of your leave of absence. If it’s an emergency, then at least tell us it is. We're reasonable people.

6. Please post your Character Sheets onto the OOC for evaluation. After being accepted, you may then post them onto the Character Tab.

7. Follow the Guild's rules for content/language. Take any improper material to PMs, please.

8. Keep your IC posts at a minimum length of two to three paragraphs and please try to write as well as you can. We know that English is not everyone's main language, but that's no excuse to being negligent.

9. Permanent death will not be present within this RP. If your character dies in combat, they will respawn after a period of 4 posts. Once 4 posts have gone up after your character has died, they will then respawn back into the war. Note that your character being captured does not count as death; unless your captors specifically end your life, your character will still be kicking even in captivity.

10. All posts need to have notifications for the characters affected in the post.

11. If you have any problems, questions, comments, or concerns, please do not hesitate to let the GMs know.

12. You may not enter the RP's Discord unless you are a participant of the RP itself. If you display interest in joining, do so in the OOC and not the Discord.

13. Have fun. Or I will make you have fun ಠ_ಠ

Yes, they have to match elemental traits. However, nothing is preventing her from adding a second element alongside wind, of you want something new.

"Don't worry Suparna, I can perfectly control my strength... huh?" Diana tumbled around once her blow met an already defeated target, offering little to no resistance to brake her movement. Once again the dragon girl had her face buried in the snow or better, she was buried completely in a white blanket of freshly driven snowflakes almost as if a flash blizzard passed by without no one noticing.

That said, Diana was pretty sure who the culprit for all of this was. She didn't have any actual reason to push the hostilities forward. After all, he technically just helped them. But still, Diana hopped back to her feet, patting the snow off of her before looking at the newcomer. "Hey, thank you for that one, guy. We were doing well on our own but it's always nice to have some someone give us a hand," she said in an honest tone. It was only then that she noticed how he was staring intently at Suparna. Diana sighed inwardly. Couldn't she get a day out with a friend without people throwing weird looks at them?

Before she joined them, Diana made sure to slice one of the elephant's legs and bring it to Suparna —before it disappeared entirely— so that she could regenerate the damage she suffered during their last battle. Who knows when some weirdo with muscles instead of a brain will pounce them, after all?

Name: Hoshikawa Minato (星川ミナト)
Age: 17 years old.
Height: 164 cm/5'4"
Weight: 52 kg/114,6 lbs

Appearance: As seen above.

Power: Psychokinesis.

Intro Post:
"Ah, entrance exams are such a bother. Why do we have to study so much before going to college?" Minato sighed a tired sigh. She wasn't complaining to anyone in particular, in fact, she wasn't complaining to anyone given that she'd been alone in her room ever since she woke up, face buried in books and more books, toiling through the direst days of her life. High school hadn't even ended yet, but she had to endure this workload if she wanted to give a better living to her family. That was the least she could do to repay them for all the sacrifices they made up to now, after all.

Minato doze of somewhere in the middle of her study session. The last thing she remembered was roasting in her room, during a terribly hot afternoon, while glaring the younger kids going to the public pool without a care in the world. "Geez, being a third-year student is certainly harsh," the last thought in her mind. However, what was waiting for Minato when she woke up was a much harsher reality...
