IC Arc 1.

Rule Zero: Obey OP.
I expect this to be a good RP, and as such, I must demand quality from my players. Thus, anyone who makes extremely short and/or (Although the two usually go hand-by-hand anyways) undetailed posts will receive a warning.
If you quit, and say you aren't joking, that's it. Goodbye, you're on your own, don't let the door hit you on the way out.
Unless I am notified beforehand, if a player is inactive for three days, I will take over his or her character(s) if it is ever needed to advance the plot, and the player will receive a warning. If the player is inactive for five days, unless he or she can justify his or her absence, he or she will be removed from the RP.
Do not incur in godmodding, unless other player(s) have agreed to allow you to control their characters or otherwise the scenario had been set up beforehand.
This rp, like all of my rps, moves very damn fast.
This rp is based off the New World of Darkness, with Demon: The Fallen thrown in, along with my own little twists. A notable thing is that at the beginning of this rp, you are an ordinary human completely unaware of the supernatural. Other than that, you can have as much customization as you want. Be a crooked cop, a Mormon rock star, a mental patient, a honors student with a secret drug problem...whatever.
You are in the small town of Jasper, California. A sleepy mining town, you could be here for any amount of reasons. You could live here, be visiting friends, killing your most recent victim, attending a rock concert, filming a movie...whatever.
Then everyone in Jasper just disappears. You and the other PCs are the only ones left. You meet a man named Mr. G, who explains that the world is considerably bigger and stranger than you imagined it to be...
At the beginning of this rp, you are an ordinary human. As the rp goes on, you may gain powers, change species, etc. At the beginning, you are an ordinary human. Got that?
There are reasons for this. You get better character development when every character isn't a walking One Man Army, and better development if they gain their powers through time.
As DM, I will control the NPCs.
You may also note the lack of actual information about this world in my OP, compared to Elfen High, which has several paragraphs and subsections about that world. This is to help you not understand a damn thing about the supernatural, since your characters sure won't. As you begin encountering more supernatural things, I'll tell you more things. Or the NPCs will. Either way, the info in this OP is likely to increase.
Basic premise: So we have a diverse cast of characters. The story starts with them meeting in the Town Square of Jasper, California, where everyone else just disappears. They meet a man named Mr. G, who informs them they have to go to Las Vegas and speak with a man named Nicholas Carry. They originally refuse and ask why the fuck this guy is asking.
Then Mr. G proves he's a basically godlike being and teleports them to Vegas, where they have to follow his instructions. They meet Nicholas Carry, who despises Mr. G. He tells the PCs that Mr. G is a storyteller, and that the PCs are the unfortunate characters in his current story. Carry ends up giving the PCs a quest- find the artifact called the Coiled Viper and bring it back to him. Carry also states he's a vampire, and reveals to the PCs that lots of supernatural creatures walk around, while humans remain unaware.
The PCs go to San Francisco to find the artifact. On the plane ride Mr. G appears, tells the PCs they have to find the Coiled Viper in 30 days, and they have to stay in SF. G also casually kills off a character.
The characters end up in San Francisco, where a lot of shit happens. But that's the basic premise before the plot kicks off for real and the characters were given freedom.
Weakness/Flaws: (At least one needed. More than this is optional, but if roleplayed well, I will give you extra experience during the course of the rp)
Powers: (Leave blank for now.)

This is what we know:
Mr. G is an all-powerful deity of unknown origin who regularly harasses the supernatural community. He also likes to capture mortals and force them to perform quests, or participate in his "stories". Mr. G came down to the town of Jasper, California and made everyone but a select few of it's inhabitants disappear. He sent the remaining group, the "party", to Las Vegas to visit Nicholas Cage look alike vampire crime boss, Nicholas Carry. Carry gave the group a quest: To go to San Francisco and find Carry's prized possession, an artifact called the Coiled Viper. So, the group headed out. There, they encountered three tribes of vampires: The pot-smoking Anvari, the blood-sucking Amara Havana, and the hive-mind Calacas. Hailey, having been converted into a Havana, sided with them. Vernon was recruited by the Calacas to help them defeat the Havana and find the Viper. The group also made friends with an Indian Anvari named Sachin, who is basically Nightkill. The party got attacked by an owl demon named the Strix when searching for the Viper in Chinatown, and Damien was turned into a Strix. Later, the group got attacked by a spider-monster, which stole their compass. The compass would lead them to the Viper, and without it, they were fucked. They also met Fluffy Hitler Lucifer the First, a baby dragon who befriended Fred. They found the spider, but a Calacas killed it and stole the compass. Thus, Vernon got the group captured by the Calacas and thrown in prison. There, they staged a prison escape, and Vernon stole the compass and a book from the Calacas. They escaped, Vernon killed himself trying to get turned into a were-snake and everyone got hoagies. Vernon came back to life, and they talked to Sachin over said hoagies.
Meanwhile, Damien used his new owl powers to build up an army of owls and were-hawks, promptly forming an alliance with Hailey and the Havana to take over the city. Then, Damien betrayed her and tried to kill of the Havana. Coupled with the Calacas being pissed at Vernon and the Anvari just trying to keep things from going to hell, war seemed eminent.
Luckily for the group, they got teleported to Alcatraz before that happened. There, they met a dragon, the creature who stole the Viper to keep itself alive. The dragon was dying, and the Viper, which could increase supernatural powers exponentially, was prolonging it's life. They got trapped in an illusionary version of Jasper, which Gabriel was able to escape with his awesome. Gabriel then convinced the dragon that a life reliant on the Viper to keep yourself alive, not even well, was not a life worth living. So, the dragon gave them the Viper and died peacefully. Yay! Damien also touched the Viper and it caused him to have a mental breakdown. Not yay! Unfortunately for the party, actually succeeding in their quest pissed Mr. G off and he killed Fred in blind rage. Fluffy Hitler Lucifer the First fused with Fred, saving his life, regrowing his long-lost left arm, and giving him super-dragon powers.
END OF ARC 1
Arc 2 picked up with everyone on a plane back to Vegas, where they would give Carry the Viper. They do so, but can't get back to Jasper because all planes have been delayed. Then, the group went off to do their own things and met a whole bunch of people:
1.) Gabriel, Damien, and Vernon went off to a hotel to spend the night (Gabriel took Damien to make sure he didn't kill himself and Vernon went because he didn't trust either one of them), where they were visited by a gargoyle who Vernon named "Lucy" (long story). Lucy was a representative of the Sons of Judas, who we now know are a crazy Catholic fundamentalist group who want to resurrect the dragon species for (insert vague reason we do not yet know here). The Calacas are also allies of theirs.
2.) Most of the others met the Librarian, a gargoyle working with the Anvari to stop the Sons. The Librarian explained the following things:"You see, it all starts with dragons. Dragons are old, old creatures. Older than mankind, certainly. Millions of years old. At first, there were animals, Dark Ones, and dragons. Possibly Gods and angels and such, depending on your religion, but I don't get into theology much, though we know demons exist. Then, as far as we can tell, the Dark Ones and the dragons fought." he said.
"The Dark Ones were banished outside the Universe to Outside, or perhaps another Universe. It's theorized a Multiverse exists, the leader of the Sons of Judas claims to come from another one. But the energy they released mutated several creatures, creating werewolves, vampires, and the rest." The Librarian explained. "I work for the Anvari in researching these things. I collect books on the subject."The Librarian looked at Fred specifically now. "Their leader is a man who refers to himself as Archangel. As for the Alcatraz dragon...the Calacas, allies of the Sons, started to awaken the dragon so they could take over San Francisco, and then the world. However, they needed more energy, as the dragon existed in a weakened form. That's why you're alive right now, actually. If the dragon had been at full power, you'd all be dead. Instead, it existed as a pathetic ghost, halfway between life and death." The Librarian paused to allow it to sink in. "The Calacas and the Sons needed more power. Therefore, they stole the Coiled Viper from Nicholas Carry, risking his wrath. Then Mr. G intervened and gave you all a quest, as I am informed. As you went to San Francisco, the Calacas lost the Viper to the individual creature known as the Strix, who cared nothing for dragons and used it for it's own crazy needs. Then you're aware of what occurred in San Francisco, I am sure. You severely hurt the Calacas and set them in an all out war against the Anvari in San Francisco- our friend Sachin, who is coming here, is quite furious with that- and you also destroyed the plot of the Sons. But they're planning something else. I have no solid ideas, but I can guess."
He is also the owner of the book Vernon stole from the Calacas, and Vernon has returned it to him. It seems important.
3.) After a bunch of wacky hi-jinks, Damien ended up with you and some humans from an organization that fight the supernatural. They are currently working with the Anvari and the Librarian to fight the Sons.
Everyone is now either at the Librarian's house or in a limousine with the supernatural-fighting humans. You are in the limo, or you should be, at least.
