Disclaimer. This is a roleplay, pure fiction. It has absolutely no basis in religion. So please no trolling.
You are dead. Yup, that’s right. D-E-A-D … dead. Deceased, a goner, pushing up daisies. Well, at least your body is. But the spirit lives on. Great news … right? No more worrying about taxes. Right? Well, that’s not necessarily true.
What happens to us when we die? Well, in the simplest terms, death is what you make of it. Some spirits end up in their own private hells. Others spend eternity in some sort of dream. But mostly those are people with preconceived notions of what is going to happen. For the rest of us, becoming a spirit is a matter of freedom from the material world. We become beings of pure energy. Oh, we aren’t the mass of our bodies converted to energy, just the energy of our will. That has limits.
The following are standard powers of spirits. They will all be at Basic level if levels apply. Limitations will apply. Some powers will contradict. Energy Independence will not apply is powers like Telekinesis are used. Possession can be extremely taxing. You will need to find a way to replenish your powers. Teleportation is very short ranged.
Travel is mostly by walking or slow flight. So wherever you died is where you began.

These will only be added with Storyteller permission in advance. This means No Godmodding them. As the Storyteller I may seek approval of other members of the group.Evolution
Spoiler alert. Being a spirit is NOT the end of the story. It is the beginning. Over time spirit may evolve into something greater. Along this path they may eventually return to a material form. Or they may evolve into an angel or demon. Even that is not the end. The variations are nearly endless. Most spirits end up as wraiths, forced to drain the life forces of humans to keep from fading away. Some end up as Ascended or Near Ascended beings.Spirit - Spirit Interaction
Spirits may interact with one another normally. However, some powers will have no effect. Take TK as an example. No body? No effect. And if one has evolved a new physical form or possess a body, they can resist. Of course, if a Transcendent Angel shows up, you will be its playtoy. But that is an OP situation. One soul cannot possess another. (Although it might devour you.) And death … is not as permanent as it is for a mortal form.Plot
But what do we DO with eternity - assuming we have one? Do we have any purpose? Do we eventually fade away to nothingness? Do we jump from one life to another? Truth is, the plot is largely up to the group and the characters you create. You can look in on your loved ones. You can seek revenge. You can find purpose in helping some mortal get through tough times. You might be discovered by someone with spiritual powers. Maybe you will haunt a location.Characters
Yes, you will need to post a CS. You can appear as you did at any point in your life. In other words, if you were 80 years old, you could come back as a spirit looking as you did when you were 20. However, you clothing will also appear as it did at that point in your life. (This may eventually change with experience.)
Yes, you may have a second character. But please don’t abandon one in the middle of a thread with someone else (unless they ghost … pun intended).Posting Rules
