Time to revitalize my rping with a new rp of my own, tough the one`s I´ve set up haven`t worked so well in the past.
This rp is set in a fictional, industrial town of Scalvia, approximately inhabbitted by 500,00. Technology wise Scalvia is in the 1930`s, the streets are crowded, tight and dangerous. Massive factories pollute the air with constant feed of smoke and crime runs rampant on the streets. Advanced genetics and whatnot are not allowed nor weirdo experiments running rampant in this rp, but people can have `unnatural` abilities just don`t over do it. A guy who can summon flames can`t go running around all day throwing fireballs etc without exhausting himself etc.
Guns are a bit advanced than the 1930`s automatic weapons like submachine guns exist, but in Scalvia machine guns and assault rifles are very rare. As mentioned before the town is in the grips of crime lords and death is an everyday commodity on the streets. For the last five years relative peace reigned over the streets however as the warring crime lords were oppressed by a man known as Falco, who declared himself as the leader of Scalvias gangs and crime families. However Falco died under mysterious circumstances only a weeks ago and the town has descended into chaos, with gangs picking up their old rivalries and crime families seeking to topple one another. By a mysterious invitation a group consisting of mobsters, killers, drifters and various other lowlives gather in a quiet baar named Targe. How their gathering will change the course of events for Scalvia will be profound. That`s our characters, the rest is up to you, and your character might not even have to be a criminal to begin with.
1. NO ONE-LINERS (no one liners!!! NEVER!!!) 2. No content above PG-13. 3. Romance is fine, just nothing sexual. 4. Be serious, people; this isn't a comedy. 5. No god-moding. 6. No controlling other RPers characters. 7. No killing another character without permission from that character's respectful RPer. 8. To improve the depth of the characters, make sure to think of a backstory that fits the setting, how the chaos and death has shook your characters life etc. Would be great if someone even made suggestions to me about my character having met your character in the past or somehow having been involved in their life. 9. Have fun!

((Ah, since it's still pretty early on in this one, I think I'll join... I feel this RP could be absolutely perfect for me. *sparkly eyes*
Name: Nathaniel Vera, or also obscurely known as the 'Prince of Lilith'. Age: 19 Gender: Female (though in general she looks androgynous/male.) Personality: In general, she's prone to bouts of aggression and seems to switch between this and stoic. Should she gain confidence in you, she opens up a bit more. She can be quite calculating, and shockingly intelligent... if she feels like it. Strong point: She's loyal to the death, a good ally in battle, and has quick and easy ways to get information. Weak points: She can be very aggressive, and a bit mean in general, as well as bitter and sardonic. Weapons: She has one 'customized' bayonet (all she did was tie a little peacock feather to the hilt), two sabers, one with a red cloth on the hilt, and one with a black cloth. Job: Kill for Hire. Appearance: Here's a picture. Depending on whether looking at an androgynous, topless, flat-chested girl or not is NSFW is up to you. Her hair's dark brown, her eyes are silver, and she's tan. Oh, and, her right arm is missing. Height: 5' 3" Weight: 102 lbs A little bit of her history: Nathaniel's mother, Gala Feliciano, once began a matriarchal 'family' called Lilith in hopes for women to gain a bit of power among the inner-ring of crime lords, as well as in an attempt to promote feminism. Not a very well known family, rumors stated that instead of a female, it was in fact led by man who used her as a front, but that still didn't attract much interest towards it. However, about 13 years ago Lilith started to grow surprisingly quickly, territorially, and gain exponential power in different regions of Scalvia. As soon as this happened, of course, Gala was captured and executed by a team of well-trained assassins. Until then, Lilith has been commanded by"0a 'steward', since at the time of Gala's death, Nathaniel was only 6. The current leader of Lilith, however, a scarred woman, has turned the family into little more than a shadow of a memory, due to her brutish tactics of command. Now that Nathaniel is grown, the few people that do remember the family rumor that she may take her rightful place as heir. Special skills: She has a very keen eye, despite the disability that semi-transparent eyes bring, and her senses are enhanced twofold when she gets an adrenaline rush. She also has a rare bone structure, courtesy of her father, that allows the bones to strengthen considerably, but at the price of being broken multiple times. (Works the exact opposite way in real life, so don't try it ^^;; ) Theme Song: Bored, by Deftones and Closer, by Nine Inch Nails.))
"That's funny... a dead man thinks that he can still hold power over people like us." A voice from the shadows said, its tone amused. "Didn't he foresee that we would all be like small children as soon as he was gone, chaotic, running rampant all around this place, doing whatever we want?" Obscured in shadow, the person exhaled deeply, smoke coming out of the nostrils hidden beneath the hat she happened to be wearing.
Silently, she rose from her seat, keeping concealed from view. "I hope none of you mind my being here... but I have reasons of my own to accept the offer presented, f it means reviving my beloved 'family'."
((shortpostisshort. I hope none of you are annoyed at my cutting in, and I hope I wasn't too straightforward in making her the daughter of a half-dead family of *coughfeministscough*. ^^; ))
