Demon City (A Demon Hunter RP OOC OPEN)

Postby The Twelve Isles » Sun Dec 09, 2018 2:33 pm

For years, since that fateful day in 1998 when the earth under Tokyo split and strange things were let loose into our world. Most that arrived were peaceful, and just wanted to live their lives like the humans who now lived besides them. But like all intelligent beings, not everyone was good, and some spirits, the ones we call Demons, were after power. And with the coming of dangerous, violent and manipulative demons, there had to be a coming of equally dangerous, violent and manipulative people to take them on. However, this was a new threat, no one knew how to fight them, and there was little to no regulation. The police were largely ineffective, and as the demons spread across the world, many people took it upon themselves to protect themselves and their own neighborhoods, towns and communities. And with this, a business formed. The Hunters Guilds, collectives of people who trained as the mercenary's that fought and killed demons, popped up in almost every major city the world over. And bigger cities often would have five or more. They developed their own subculture, one that was obsessed with cars, punk rock, rap, and ancient swords of myth. Every Hunter dreamed of managing to acquire a legendary, mythological sword. Especially after it was revealed that a hunter in London had actually managed to acquire Excalibur.

But, not all were equal. Some cities were cleaner than others, and as a result there was less need to Hunters there. Most would travel as needed, until they found a Guild where their help would actually be needed. Where jobs were plentiful, and were that money flowed like water. It was cities like L.A., New York, London, Johannesburg, Rio De Janeiro and Beijing where the largest Hunters Guilds formed. But no city was ever able to top Tokyo. The place where the spirits first emerged into the world, was widely regarded as the Hunters Mecca. It was the place where people and spirits lived in both the most harmonious situation, and also the most conflicted one. Demons ran rampant, and it became the place where Hunters from all over the world congregated, dreaming of being the next on on the news for defeating a powerful demon. It changed from a city of technological innovation and neon to a city of surrealism and bizarre occurrences. And for a city that was already considered just a little strange, the spirits only amplified it.

So now you, the young brave Hunters, come to this city from afar. All across the world, or possibly from right here in Tokyo, you and your peers come to this Mecca to cut your teeth and prove yourselves. There are guilds all across the city to choose from, but how can you make your name known in a well established Guild with hundreds of Hunters? Together with the others players, you will form a small, independent Guild, and work to carve out your place in the often hectic, surreal and dangerous world of Hunters. Be a you a seasoned veteran, doing this since 1998, or a young kid determined to get the respect and honor you know you are deserving of. But no matter what, in this little Guild you will build, there is something else going on in the sewers beneath Tokyo, something that the bigger guilds don't want to acknowledge. Something that only you and your new peers will have to fight, and will have to fight alone.

Hello And Welcome


Hi all, and welcome to my RP. As the Introduction probably informed you, this RP is about Demon Hunters, or Hunters as they are more colloquially referred to, as they try and make their names known in the world of Hunting. The idea for this RP came to me through a series of places, but most notably my interest in much of the things that are important to the Demon Hunter subculture in this world. That is to say, punk rock, rap music, fast cars, Japanese mythology and the artwork of Wizzadaking and Mau Lencinas (also known as 199Hates.) Its a pretty eclectic selection of interests, but thats kind of the idea. The world that our characters inhabit is supposed to be one that is surreal and strange. Its supposed to be the kind of thing where you could be walking down the street, and see a group of young people standing on the corner flipping through their phones and swapping stories. At first glance, you think nothing of it. Just kids doing what they do. But on second glance, there is something off. There is blood on one guys Adidas sweatshirt. Another has a two swords in his belt like a samurai, the sheath decked out in stickers like a skateboard. And the third has two demonic heads, still dripping blood onto the concrete slung over their shoulder. That's the sort of world we are working in, one where the average sights of the city, like neon lights, honking horns, and wannabe rappers meets ancient religious demons, who haunt the sewers and abandoned buildings, trying to lure mortals to their deaths. Its the kind of world where you wander into the local 7/11, but behind the counter is a Zashiki-warashi, the Japanese house spirits. Or the man who sells your a new car is seen at the bar later that night sipping on a glass of synthetic blood, his vampire fangs glinting in the late night lighting. And of course, that brings us back to you. Not all of the inhabitants of this world are peaceful, both mortal and spirit. Some are dangerous, and so you must hunt them. After all, the world needs bad people. They keep the worse people at bay.

Rules


I'm sorry, but we have to have some rules. Don't worry, I wont make anything to outrageous.

1. We will operate on a strike system, like its baseball. 1 strike against you, and you will just receive a warning. 2 strikes, and you will receive a second warning and be asked to not respond for a day. A 3rd strike, and I will ask you to leave the RP, your character will be taken under my control and I will find a way to get rid of them so they don't clog up the RP. That said, I don't like to think of myself as harsh or unfair, so if you think a strike I gave you is unfair, please feel free to PM me and Ill be more than happy to discuss it with you. If you make a good point, I will rescind the strike.

2. Most obvious of all, don't be a dick. While IC is one thing, if we are OOC and you have a problem with someone else, keep it cordial. Debate and discussion is fine, but once insults are being thrown around then it becomes a problem. Just treat OOC with the Golden Rule, and treat others how you want to be treated. If it would hurt your feelings, or make you angry, then you are better off just not saying it, unless you want a strike.

3. Don't godmod, don't metagame. No one likes that guy, so don't be that guy.

4. Please remain active. In this RP, active means maintaining your presence in OOC with at least one post a day, and at least one post in IC every two days, so that we know you are still around. If a week goes by with no obvious presence from you, your character will become NPC for a second week with I or my Co-OPs controlling them. If after this second week you are not back, your character will be gotten rid of in some way and you will have to create a new character if you wish to rejoin. That said, if there is a real reason why you wont be able to be around, just send me a TG or say something in the OOC before you become inactive, so we know what happened to you and know that you will eventually be back.

5. While this RP has the potential to get a little dark, don't let that go overboard. We are not trying to make this RP completely clean and sanitary, it is at its core kind of a crazy and violent theme/story. But if something you are doing seems to be only disturbing for the sake of shock value, you will have earned yourself a strike.

6. There is an expectation of some post quality. That is to say, try and make each of your posts be at least five sentences long. If you are in dialogue, then it can be forgiven, but otherwise please try and keep your posts a single paragraph long.

7. Respect the OP, respect the Co-OP's.

8. Have fun.

Before I complete this app, I must know:

  1. This being the late 90s in Japan, will there be illegal street races against demon-possessed cars?
  2. If I reinforce a motorcycle, can I beat the shit out of a demon with it?

Oh, and a bit more explanation about what I should put down for Combat Mentality would be nice I suppose, but those first two questions are the important ones.

Well, this technically takes place in 2018, but because I like the idea of illegal street races and bozosoku gangs running around, I might try and find a way to slip those into the Demon Hunter subculture.

As for an armored bike, I'm totally down. As long as it isn't too over the top, I'm not against it.

In terms of combat mentality, it really just means how does your character fight. Do they try and stay at long range, taking advantage of terrain and taking fights slow and steady, or are they up close and personal, fighting with raw brute strength and aggression, or are they somewhere in between.

In general, just describe how they fight, and what their strengths and weakneses are in combat.

Ghost


Image




General Information
Age: 24
Gender: Female
Height: 5 ft
Weight: 168 lbs
Physical Features: NA
Clothing/Accessories: Her suit in the photo and her katana.

Psychological Evaluation
Personality: She is quite quiet and rarely speaks, which makes hunting potentially dangerous spirits easier. She also is obsessed with the martial arts and constantly studies new fighting styles and tactics. And finally, she is very apathetic and only cares about getting the job done and getting paid.
Hopes/Dreams: To acquire the legendary Kusanagi-no-tsurugi.
Fears: Losing her sword arm and encountering the Demon that killed her parents.
Combat Mentality: She fights using traditional Japanese sword-fighting styles.
Biography:Urayama was born to a martial artist family in Tokyo and was trained on how to fight at ten years old, but sadly her parents were killed by a powerful Demon when she was fifteen while walking at night. She was soon taken in by a martial artist and sword enthusiast who continued to train her until she was eighteen in sword-fighting. Once she was nineteen she left Tokyo and began wandering. Eventually she began being hired by people to take care of Demons for them. After ten years of this, she became quite efficient at killing Demons as she was quiet and good with a katana.

She even thought of joining one of the Hunter Guilds in Tokyo, but preferred the freedom of choosing her jobs. She was also disgusted by the Guilds' greed and thought that they preferred to make money then help the people. Because of this she became determined to form a new type of Guild that only helped the common people, but upon seeing people willingly help Demons, decided that the Guilds' might be right. So she began increasing her price for helping kill Demons, and eventually became set on obtaining the legendary sword Kusanagi-no-tsurugi to try and bring people to her side and help her form a new Guild.

Biography:Urayama was born to a Hunter family in Tokyo and was trained on how to fight Demons at ten years old, but sadly her parents were killed by a powerful Demon when she was fifteen. She was soon taken in by a fellow Hunter who continued to train her until when was eighteen in sword-fighting. Once she was nineteen she joined the Tokyo Hunter Guild. She was often sent after weaker Demons in the beginning as she could move fast and quietly, but she could also hold her own if the Demon happened to notice her. Eventually she was sent after more dangerous Demons, but nothing as powerful as the one that killed her parents. She doesn't really talk much with the other Hunters and usually doesn't team up with others, so people don't really try to make conversation with her.


This is a pretty good start, and I like the idea for the character. That said, there needs to be a second paragraph for the bio, as I asked in the application for two, five sentence paragraphs. Also, considering that Demons only showed up in the world in 1998, and that this RP takes place in 2018, it seems kind of unlikely that she would have been raised by experienced Hunters, as she is older than the amount of time Spirits and Humans have lived together.

Also, a bit more of a nit pick but something to keep in mind, there is no one Hunters Guild for a city, with bigger cities in particular often having upwards of five Guilds. However, all of our characters should for some reason or another be unaffiliated with a Guild or be looking to leave a Guild so that they end of meeting, and forming their own. Sorry if this wasn't clear, I'm adding a final section to the OP that would make that clearer because I felt like there was a lot of stuff in my head that I wasn't really able to put down in the OP.

If possible, I would like to start my character off with a very minor legendary sword. Also, how effective are non-sword weapons? Can you use spirits, or blessed items? Will we get demon-fightan powers?

Yes, guns are effective, but only if you are able to procure iron or silver bullets, depending on the Demon.

However, as this RP takes place in Japan, guns are a little harder to come by. So don't expect much more than a pistol here and there. At least not to start with. As the story progresses, we will eventually be able to get better weapons, vehicles and artifacts.

Well, I'm glad to hear that your interested in this RP.

Anyways, what kinds of ideas are you thinking about for a character? You said Khadda Jhin, but what are other ideas you have as well? I think if you just talk them through the ideas should start flowing. That usually works out pretty well for me when I do that.

Heroes-David Bowie




Mostly Heroes, but also any other Bowie Song(If you can’t tell, more of a British lad)

General Information
Age:. 30(Born in 1988)
Gender: Male
Height: 6’4
Weight: 200 lbs
Physical Features: 6’4” with brown eyes and dark brown hair. He has a medium sized nose and walks with pride and a straight back. He never slouches. He has a small Ziggy stardust tattoo on his left hand and a order of the round table mark on his right palm.
Clothing/Accessories: He usually wears formal clothing. When he wants to be low key, he wears a leather jacket and a The Who shirt with jeans. He sometimes wears an armored breastplate and always has an order of the round table necklace. He uses a two handed broadsword for most occasions, has a short sword and a knife for different occasions.

Psychological Evaluation
Personality:He’s a very joyous man with a positive attitude. He excels with some company and doesn’t shy away from a challenge. He’s not a genius, but he’s pretty smart when it comes down to it. While it takes him a little bit to find friends, he will always come to their defense. Some people even say he’s loyal to a fault. He always has a joke or two yo his sleeve and a nice cockney accent to go with it.

Hopes/Dreams: Allen’s dream is to recover Joyeuse-Charlemagne’s legendary sword which was stolen by demons which were tracked to Tokyo. He’s also doing it for the Order of the Round Table which I’ll get to later.
Fears: He hates fire.
Combat Mentality: Allen tends to act as a tank fighter. He deals with the biggest enemy first and protects the other members of whatever team he’s in. While not always a leader, he can take control of need be


Biography: Born on August 7th, 1988 to a Middle class British family in London, England, Allen’s life was quite normal at first. He had a loving mother and hard working but caring father. He had two younger sisters and a friend just as old as him only younger by a week named Arthur. Even the demon portal barely affected him and Arthur. However, in 2004, when him and Arthur were sixteen, as they were wandering the forests outside London, Arthur discovered a strange sword lodged in a rock guarded by a hideous fire demon. While Allen initially tried to attack the demon to protect his friend, it quickly incapacitated him after nearly burning him. Fearing for his friend, Arthur went for the sword, which when taken out of the rock, exploded in a heavenly light that ropes the dark creature to shreds. Arthur had just drawn Excalibur, legendary sword of King Arthur.

Shortly after the event, the two were thrust into the World of demons. Their two other good friends, Sarah and Maxwell, soon joined them after a demon attacked their high school, burning it down in a fire that gave Allen his fear of fire. To take revenge for the 70 classmates and professors that died in the blast, they formed the order of the Round table, a small guild that specialized in finding magical artifacts. In 2009, they fought through a demon infested Oslo where they found Mjolnjr, the mighty hammer. In 2010, they discovered an ancient prison that held Merlin, the famous English sorcerer who had been defeated by demons after the original King Arthur’s fall. Together, they established a headquarters in Tintagel castle, where Camelot was based on and Arthur’s true castle.

Since then, the now five person band have become the top slayers in Europe and have traveled from the high Swiss Alps to the Russian marshes. Each member has a title to go with themselves. Arthur’s title is Arthur, Maxwell’s is Galahad, Sarah’s is Perceval and Allen’s is Lancelot.

Now. Allen is on a mission to reclaim Charlemagne’s famous sword Joyeuse which was stolen by a demon that has fled to Tokyo to sell it to the highest bidder. Since the other members are needed to keep order in London and Europe, Allen has taken this task upon himself and will stop at nothing to reclaim the sacred blade that when combined with Excalibur, is said to be able to perform great things.


Is this too Mary Due-ish? I got caught up in Arthurian myth for a bit.

This is a pretty good start, and I like the idea for the character. That said, there needs to be a second paragraph for the bio, as I asked in the application for two, five sentence paragraphs. Also, considering that Demons only showed up in the world in 1998, and that this RP takes place in 2018, it seems kind of unlikely that she would have been raised by experienced Hunters, as she is older than the amount of time Spirits and Humans have lived together.

Also, a bit more of a nit pick but something to keep in mind, there is no one Hunters Guild for a city, with bigger cities in particular often having upwards of five Guilds. However, all of our characters should for some reason or another be unaffiliated with a Guild or be looking to leave a Guild so that they end of meeting, and forming their own. Sorry if this wasn't clear, I'm adding a final section to the OP that would make that clearer because I felt like there was a lot of stuff in my head that I wasn't really able to put down in the OP.

Okay, I changed it and added a paragraph.

I wouldn't say that this is too Mary Sue. I think he would bring a lot of interesting experience to the hunters who are in Tokyo. Just so long as you don't get to OP due to his connections in Europe, there probably wont be too much of a problem. However, one minor nit pick but nothing to over the top, the person who found Excalibur was a woman, not a dude.

Anyways, other than that, I would say that Allen is ACCEPTED.

[align=center]Marcus Ellis

King


Image





General Information
Age: 19
Gender: Male
Height: 6'0"
Weight: 176 lbs
Physical Features: Marcus is missing his top left canine tooth. He has a bad stick and poke tattoo of a cross on his wrist.
Clothing/Accessories: Marcus is very fond of a jean's jacket that he owns, with a patch on the back featuring a stylized broken heart with a knife through it, along with the words "HEART BREAKER" sewn on under neath it.

Psychological Evaluation
Personality: Marcus is often described as friendly and cordial, though sometimes a little bit too dour. Most people would agree that they like him, and few have any real problems with Marcus, but they would also say that he tends to be quiet and reserved, and so he has few real friends due to his serious personality. That said, he is also a very driven person and has a very driven personality. Some would even go so far as to call him an upstart, especially in Tokyo, where the oldest and most experienced Hunters are far from pleased about some unknown American kid showing up and trying to cut into their business.

A second attribute of Marcus is that he is obsessed with Ninja ever since he first saw Naruto as a kid. He has always preferred them to the Samurai, who he thought were too caught up in honor codes to really get things done, whereas the Ninja's were mysterious assassins in the night with no rules holding them down. The only thing that matters is results, an results he hopes to get.
Hopes/Dreams: To become famous as a Hunter, and to do so in Tokyo, where only the best of the best in the Hunters world cut their teeth. He has a secondary agenda as well, to acquire the swords of Jiraya, Orochimaru and Tsunade, three ninjas of legendary status in Japan.
Fears: Marcus is deathly afraid of bugs. Growing up in Florida, he often was scared to leave the city because he knew that there were big ass bugs out there. This fear continues on now as he reaches the age where he is no longer really a kid, but isn't really an adult either, and he suspects that it will continue for the rest of his life.
Combat Mentality: In combat Marcus is definitively pragmatic and careful. He is much more inclined to try and work carefully and methodically, strafing around the outside of a target, and not attacking until he knows he can land a hit. He fights with two Katana's, which he likes to place squarely in his belt to show off when he is out on a job.
Biography: Marcus was born in Miami Florida in 1998, the year the portal opened in Tokyo. His entire life has been one where Demons were out there, and he quickly fell in love with the world and subculture surrounding the Hunters when his father joined them. His mother and father were not together, having become pregnant with Marcus by accident when they were both 18 and very drunk at a party. But that said, they were both friends with each other after they had a kid together, and on the weekends when Marcus would stay with his father instead of his mother or grandparents, his father would take him around to meet his Hunter friends, who all loved Marcus.

Neither of his parents were ever rich, but after having Marcus they were both determined to raise him right. They worked hard, and kept him away from the many gangs in the neighborhoods they lived in. He came to greatly respect hard work, having watched his parents give up their own youths to make sure he had a life of his own, and he was always careful to only play with kids who he knew had the same opinions as him. Needless to say, being such a serious child he had few friends, but the ones he did have were truly the best a boy could have. However, though he was smart, he was also a little stubborn, and never was much good in school. His grades were often C's and D's, something that made his parents angry no matter what, but which never bothered him. He was happier drawing, listening to music, and watching Naruto and Dragon Ball Z. He had his friends, and he knew that no one would ever fuck with him, because if they did his fathers Hunter friends would cause problems, and no one wanted to fuck with Hunters.

It was because of this that he first decided he wanted to be a Hunter, but also because the Hunters were the closest he could come to being like the characters he idolized as a kid. When he was 15, he saved up money and bought a Katana he saw in a pawn shop. He started looking for work as a Hunter, rarely getting anything bigger than poltergeists and other such things that had taken up in houses, but it was a place to start. He learned to drive, and occasionally worked with other hunters trying to take on possessed cars. However, he knew that Miami was not the place to make his name. There were some big fish in Miami, but none of the big jobs ever went to the 16 year old kids, they always went to the Hunters who were in big guilds, with all the funds and equipment they could offer, and who had been hunting since the very day the Portal opened. There was one ray of hope though. During his year of being a Hunter, he had been frequenting the many message boards that Hunters used to communicate with others all across the world. On one of them he had met a guy in Tokyo named Hakaku who was one year older, who had the same interests as Marcus. They had developed a friendship, and soon a plan was in place for Marcus to fly out to Tokyo as soon as he was 18 and the two would start to work together.

His mother did not approve of his decisions, stating the obviously good point that he didn't know any Japanese, and all he knew about the culture was just two cartoons he had liked as a kid. Still, Marcus was not to be shut down, and his father though cautious, was more supportive of his idea. He knew that if Marcus wanted to make a career out of being a Hunter, then Tokyo was the place to do it. It was the place where the best of the best cut their teeth, and Hunters from all across the world flocked there to test their metal. It would not be easy, he knew no one except for one guy, but as long as he payed his dues to the larger guilds and got an official Hunters License, then he would be permitted to work there.

So after another few years, Marcus turned 18, and had saved up a good amount of money as a cushion for when he got overseas. Him and Hakaku made a plan to meet, and for him to stay at Hakaku's place until they could both get a larger apartment. On August 4th, two days after his birthday, Marcus packed up his clothing, computer, phone and swords and got on a plane for Tokyo. He called his mother and his father as soon as he touched down, telling them that he had arrived safely, and made sure they saw Hakaku's face while talking to them over a face time call. Hakaku had an accent stronger than a hurricane, but in the slowest he could so that they would understand him he assured Marcus's parents that he would help Marcus and have his back. And with that, the two set off into the city of Tokyo, the Hunters Mecca, to make their names and fortunes.

A year passed, and the two began to work together as a pair, though still independent from the Guilds. Though not outwardly evil, it was generally accepted between the two of them that the Guilds were a little to greedy and structured for their tastes. They were both licensed Hunters, and they were both fairly good at their jobs. Though they still ran into the same problem as before, with most people looking at them and seeing two kids without enough experience to be hunting more dangerous Demons, they felt that they should be getting harder but better paying Jobs. Together, they started to throw around an idea.

What if we started our own Guild?

Ok. The conemctions in Europe are more just for lore building and establishment. His connections already have Europe to deal with. He’s flying solo right now. He might send letters every once in a while, but nothing more. Quick question, where is it mentioned that the person who found Excalibur is a she? I couldn’t tell.


Word, that sounds good.

And as for the Hunter finding Excalibur being a woman, I just looked over the app and I saw that I hadn't put that in. I know I wrote it in my first draft of the OP, so I must have just left it out in the second draft but still remembered it being in there in my head. So, since I was wrong, don't worry about changing Arthur, since I don't feel like changing the OP for something so small.
