The Stolen Hourglasses (CLOSED, OOC, Sign-up, Interest, etc)

Postby Ameriganastan » Fri Oct 29, 2021 10:37 pm

Hello. You're dead. And I am DEATH. The mercurial force that comes for all beings in this world of yours.


Image


A pleasure to meet you all...again. Yes, I imagine meeting DEATH is not something you expected to do again after your untimely ends. But I have use of you. For you see, something quite...unforeseen has happened. A theft. Several hourglasses have gone missing. The living infiltrating my sanctum. This will not stand. IT WILL NOT STAND! As long as they possess their hourglasses, I can do nothing. And that is where you lucky mortals come in. You all met your ends ahead of schedule. And you all possessed rather unique skills that made you excel at ending life in all its splendor. And I am not an unfair entity of the end. Back to earth you will go. And you will hunt down these vermin who dared try and stave off their ends by setting their FILTHY forms within my domain. Do this, and a second chance you will have. Returned to earth to live out your days. But be warned. This is not charity. You are working for me. If you think you can simply run off and live freely when you return to earth? I will reap your wretched soul and sentence you to the foulest pits of the underworld. Now get to work.



TL;DR, you're a dead individual getting a potential second chance at life by hunting down some people who pissed off death. Sign up if you so choose.

Are all souls chosen by death contemporary? Or are they drawn from all eras?

I was going to go with contemporary, but I like your idea. Go nuts. This little gaggle would be more fun with people from different times. Heck, the thieves could be from different eras as well. Maybe give it a dash of Legends Of Tomorrow, having them dropped in different times to find the current thief.

Since this involves Death and undeath, how fantastical can this be? Do I have to be a dead human, or can I be any sort of ghoul/ghost in existence?

I was reading about Great Depression gangsters last night. Sue me.

App
Name: Ike "No Mercy" Salmon
Age: 34
Sex: male
Appearance: A sharp-dressed man with dark hair, dark eyes, an aquiline nose, and a scar across his face. Ike looks like a man you would not want to mess with.
Background: "No Mercy" Salmon was a gangster in New York during the Roaring Twenties and the Great Depression. During the Great Depression, Ike joined Murder Inc, a company that acted as an enforcement branch (assassins) for the Mafia. Ike did taxes and did hits. He killed a lot of people, and he was one of the best in his job.
Year of death: 1937
Cause of death: You would think it would be a glamorous death, fitting for a high-ranking gangster. But instead, Ike died of drowning when on vacation in Cuba.
Skills: Guns, knives, poisons... and math.
Misc: I know some idiot is going to app as a Nazi. Ike hates them. HATES them. The nickname "No Mercy" is certainly true in the case of Nazis.

I'm a woman. Some weird Jew. Trying to learn French and failing. An American who wishes the US would switch to the metric system. Part of a giant conspiracy. Secret pyromaniac? I will never make an OOC factbook!

my politics are confused and muddled

I'm interested and will apply, but I'm running an RP, so I might not be as active here as I am there.

App
Name: Tobias 'Toby' Haddock
Age: 21
Sex: Male
Appearance: Tobias is a thin man with dirty blond hair (usually parted), sharp facial features, green eyes, and wears round glasses.
Background: Tobias Haddock was a soldier from London, England, who joined the Royal Marines in 1941, after his family was killed during the Blitz. He underwent his training, and was the best sharpshooter in the camp, and was well liked. Toby's first combat assignment was on D-Day, when he met his untimely end.
Year of death: (June 6) 1944
Cause of death: Was gunned down by a German soldier on D-Day, specifically during the first wave attack on Gold Beach, the moment the ramp went down.
Skills: He can shoot really well (to an unnatural degree), quite smart and clever, and quite charismatic.
Misc: He is rather sensitive sometimes, and has quite a conscience.

Yes, now there are two three characters with last names that are fish.

Hopefully first MT character.


Name: Gregory' Greg' Mahi
Age: 38
Sex: Male
Appearance: Brown hair, green eyes, straight nose, well-built, scar across left shoulder.
Background: Mr. Mahi once served in the Afghan war for 12 years, ranging from 2001-2013. He was quite the leader, and led several successful charges through Baluchi Pass during the Battle of Chora, successfully repelling the Taliban. After that, he was at the frontlines of several battles, and eventually was withdrawn in 2012. After a year of longing for more adventure, he quit the Army and became a poacher hunter.

During his poaching career, he hunted down and severely injured, if not killed, a lot of rare animal poachers, and became a master at setting traps and melee weapons. Mr. Mahi was regarded as a controversial figure, with radical environmentalist groups praising him and the common person condemning him. At his peak in 2015, he was able to hunt down 30 poachers, 12 whom later died.
Year of death: 15 May 2018
Cause of death: After stalking a group of poachers who were planning to kill a herd of elephants for about two weeks, he was about to set up his trap, when two of the poachers found him red-handed with a bear trap right outside the poacher's bedroom. After a brutal fight involving traps, guns, knives and bedsheets, he was finally stabbed in the chest with a knife and died with several gun wounds to his stomach.
Skills: He excelled at setting traps, biology and things about Afghanistan. He was handy with a knife, a gun and a broken bottle.
Misc: He had a slight alcohol problem, but claimed 'I am at my best' after consuming several cans of beer.

Name: Locusta of Gaul
Age: 43
Sex: Female
Appearance: The woman known to history as Locusta looked every bit the Gaul she was. In youth she was tall and fair skinned, with a beautiful curly reddish mane of hair with savage gleaming green snake eyes and a slender figure. At the time of her death, age and a hard life had taken some toll on her.
Background: Born in Transalpine Gaul in the Year of the Consuls Gnaeus Cornelius Lentulus Gaetulicus and Gaius Calvisius Sabinus the woman who would one day be known as Locusta was the daughter of a renegade druid and a priestess and seer of the gallic religion. She was raised by her mother and schooled in the mysteries of the druids until her thirteenth year. In that year her mother was executed by the village elders for practicing black magic and Locusta sold into slavery to the Roman government. She was taken to Rome where she was employed as a whore until she poisoned her owner. Thereafter she worked as a poisoner, wise woman and occasional midwife, dabbling in all manners of villainy. Eventually her crimes caught up with her and she was arrested for poisoning. Then in the Year of the Consuls Manius Acilius Aviola and Marcus Asinius Marcellus Julia Agrippina the Younger, having need of good a poisoner, secured the assistance of Locusta in murdering her husband the emperor Tiberius Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus. Not long after the new emperor, Agrippina the Younger's son Nero Claudius Caesar Augustus Germanicus called upon her once again the poison his brother and rival Tiberius Claudius Caesar Britannicus. Once again Locusta did as bid and she was richly rewarded by Nero with a place at his court as his poisoner. But no good deed ever goes unpunished and when the emperor was overthrown his successor Galba had Locusta executed.
Year of death: the Year of the Consuls Servius Sulpicius Galba Imperator Caesar Augustus and Titus Vinius (69 AD)
Cause of death: Executed
Skills: A master poisoner trained in all manner of dark arts.
Misc: Since Locusta is not actually a Gaulish name I am frantically searching for a Gaulish name that has something to do with fish. :p

Name: Miron Alexandrovitch Vasiliev
Age: 39
Sex: Male
Appearance: https://i.imgur.com/WuZr3Pu_d.webp?maxw ... elity=high
Background: Miron used to be a KGB spy in the United States during the Cold War, active mostly in counter-espionage by keeping an eye out for other US assets and making sure they had not defected. Born in 1923, he served as a pilot during the latter months of WW2, scoring no kills but surviving to see a Soviet victory. After the war he joined the KGB, and he served as a Russian plant in the US from 1950 until 1962. During the height of the Cuban missile crisis, the CIA were hot on his heels, and rather than risk capture, he took his own life and burned down his house to make his death appear like an accident, taking everything possibly incriminating, as well as his American wife and their two children, with him.
Year of death: 1962
Cause of death: Suicide by cyanide poisoning and autoimmolation.
Skills: Politing, infiltration, espionage, and competent with a submachine gun.
Misc: N/a
The name's James. James Usari. Well, my name is not actually James Usari, so don't bother actually looking it up, but it'll do for now.

Ta-da, my guy.

App
Name: Elias Owens
Age: 29
Sex: Male
Appearance: https://cdnb.artstation.com/p/assets/im ... 1426196753
Background: Crime doesn't pay. Well, it actually pays pretty well. Especially if you were a member of the Owens Gang, a bank robbing crew who menaced the American West during the late 1860s and into the early 1870s. Led by the fearsome Elias Owens, the gang of outlaws hit bank after bank. Ranging from California to Kansas, the boys seemed impossible to catch. But Elias had grown tired of life on the run, and more importantly had fallen in love with a woman. So, Elias decided enough was enough and walked away from the gang, simply vanishing one night with all the money they had pilfered during their stretch from Nebraska to Kansas. And courtesy of an anonymous tip to the local rangers, his gang soon found themselves arrested. Elias was ready to kick back and enjoy retirement with his fortune, his lady and his soon to arrive first child. But revenge is a Hell of a motivator. A member of his gang, Dickie Monroe, tracked Elias down to his house on the Kansas plains 2 years later. Elias was just a split second too slow on the draw that day.
Year of death: 1879
Cause of death: Gunned down a member of his old robbery gang.
Skills: A crack shot with his revolvers. Can throw a solid punch as well.

Question, now that I’ve applied. Would our characters first appear the way they did in the moment before they died, or a version of themselves that is perfectly healthy and not a wound on themselves? Or is there some other way? Also, would they know they died? Just trying to get a rough plan out for my first post.

I'm gonna say yes, they know they're dead. Or at least remember the split second before dying.

Also, I'm working on the IC...which I don't get to very often, so it's taking a bit.

Background: Born in May 1919, his father had served in the Great War as a sailor, and he came from a Canadian military family, with his grandfather having served in South Africa. His family had moved to Britain in 1912, and he received a good British upbringing and education. In 1939 he joined the air force, a few months before war began. In December of that year he passed RAF College and became a Pilot Officer. His first recorded kill was over London on the 3rd of July 1940, a Heinkel He 111. Over the course of the Battle of Britain he would shoot down two more aircraft. He then fought over the Mediterreanean and on D-Day, with two more recorded kills, and being promoted to Flight Lieutenant. His luck run out, however, when, flying bomber escorts over Germany in 1945 from Bentwaters, he was attacked by German fighters.
Year of death: 1945
Cause of death: Ambushed by three Focke-Wulf Fw 190s over Germany proper
Skills: Pretty handy with a pistol.
Misc: Edit: I just realised somebody is a Royal Marine in '44. Maybe we can get along.

Name: Samson Robinson
Age: 28
Sex: M
Appearance: Samson Robinson
Background: Samson was born a slave in 1808 to owner Steven Robinson, who moved to Texas in 1830, taking Samson and his other slaves with him(slavery was technically illegal in Texas under Mexican rule, but that didn't stop most from keeping their slaves anyway). Samson toiled along doing whatever was requested of him by his master, which mostly included watching over his livestock. Then, when the Texan Revolution started, Steven volunteered Samson to fight for him, and it was negotiated that if Samson fought for the Texians, he would be given his freedom once the revolt ended and Texas became free. Of course, he jumped at the opportunity of freedom.

Samson would fight in the Siege of Bexar, afterwards setting up shop in the doomed Alamo fort under Texian generals James Bowie and William Travis for the winter. Once the Mexicans, led by Santa Anna, returned and put the Alamo under siege, Samson stayed behind and honorably helped defend the Alamo over the 13 days of the siege. When the Mexicans stormed the Alamo on the fateful night of March 6, 1836, Samson would be among the defenders who gave their lives.
Year of death: 1836
Cause of death: killed in the Battle of the Alamo
Skills: a natural with a gun and a knife

That's a good number of sign-ups I think. I'll work on getting the IC up today.

Name: Jonathan "John" Hunter
Age: 28
Sex: M
Appearance: Fairly short, thin, and pale. Has dark hair and the look of someone who doesn't get outside often enough.
Background: A talented self-taught hacker, John doing started doing freelance hacking for hire in 2024. However, he managed to find several major vulnerabilities in the control systems of modern vehicles, and realized their potential, and added assassination to the list of things he could do undetected in 2030. He was very successful for a long time, with him being able to kill his targets in car crashes that looked like accidents. However, his luck eventually ran out, with several members of a gang whose leader he had killed tracking him down, and after a brief firefight in which John managed to shoot one of the gang members, he was shot to death.
Year of death: 2035
Cause of death: gunned down by vengeful gang members
Skills: talented hacker, and can use modern guns, although he isn't a very good shot
Misc: Not very outdoorsy, and didn't pay too much attention in history class- as effective as he is in modern times, he won't be in ancient ones.
Bored college student who is probably supposed to be doing something important.

Well, not exactly, but you still inspired me. And it got me curious to see if a criminal would attempt to take the moral high ground over my character, and how that'd play out.

Name: Helga Krieger
Age: 15
Sex: Female
Appearance:
Image
Background: Born in 1930, the NSDAP had been in power virtually her whole life, and as a member of Bund Deutscher Mädel she was further indoctrinated in the tenets of National Socialism. However, Helga never became a fanatic. Her parents had voted SPD when it was still possible to do so, and even if they were fairly apolitical (and initially assumed Hitler wouldn't be more authoritarian than the Kaiser, and that at least the troubles of the Weimar era would be gone...) it rubbed off on her as well. Open discussions and different opinions had always had a place in their home. Helga was the only child, her father who was a construction worker died in a work related accident in 1935, and her mother never remarried (although she had a few courtiers over the years). In order to provide for them, Helga's mother stopped being a housewife and began to work in a grocery store. Helga's childhood went on pretty normal from then on (well, "normal" given the time and place). Once the tide of WWII turned shortages became plenty, and Helga's mother began to dabble in the black market. Illegal of course, but Helga pretended she didn't knew. What other option was there?

During the battle of Berlin, Helga was conscripted as a Wehrmachthelferin of the Volkssturm. On paper, she had non combatant tasks behind the front, but the circumstances very soon had her become a child soldier. She had heard the stories about how the Soviet soldiers took their revenge on German women, and saved the last bullet for herself.
Year of death: 1945
Cause of death: Suicide
Skills: Decent shot, great at keeping secrets.
Misc: (Depends on how death works here, has it been all black until now for our characters, or have they resided in a realm of the dead? If the latter, I would say Helga's learned more about the nature of Nazi Germany from other dead people, over the years.)
