Can be found here.Created by a Bollywood Nerd, and a sort of Spiritual Successor to previous NationStates RP Elfen High.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...
Back from the Dead: Mark refuses to stay dead. Vernon died and returned once. It's unknown just what happened to Hailey but she also didn't stay gone. And Gabriel has recently been resurrected for reasons which remain unclear.
Bears Are Bad News: Mika is "killed by a bear" when Mr. G tries to convince everyone to go to Vegas for the first time.
Beneath the Mask: When the group obtain the Viper G flips, dropping his smug persona, and throwing a massive fit over the ordeal.
Beware the Silly Ones: Mr G. When Earl punches him, he drops all semblance of sillyness, and magics up a knife, sticking it right in Earl's gut.
Big Good: Mr. G is a rare twist on this. He's in charge of everything the group does, but he makes them do it against their will, kidnaps their families, and regularly torments them for the sake of his story.
Black and Gray Morality: Even though the moral centers of the group are a homicidal priest and a manipulative former chessmaster, the party is infinitely more moral than Mr. G.
Breaking Speech: Mr. G had prepared to give one to Vernon, completely with a "we aren't so different" section, but stopped once he saw the insane things Vernon was doing and left.
Catch Phrase: "Things are about to go southward." - Vernon, right before something goes horribly, horribly wrong.
Nicholas Carry, the vampire forced by Mr. G to give them their assignment, looks exactly like Nicholas Cage. Many Ghost Rider-based threats ensue.
Vernon. That is, until he denounced his ways after seeing the stress make Damien break down. He lampshades this by buying a uniform based on a chessboard, which he lit on fire and left in an airport toilet.
Damien orchestrated an entire war.
Chekhov's Gunman: Fluffy Hitler Lucifer the First sacrifices himself to save Fred's life and turns him into a dragon-human hybrid.
Christianity Is Catholic: Apparantly, every Christian character in the RP is either Catholic or associated with the Catholic Church.
There is one exception - sort of. Gabriel is an Episcopal priest, but "If the writers want to use a generally Catholic depiction, but get around the pesky celibacy issue, they'll use an Episcopal priest (which, in the immortal words of Robin Williams, is 'Catholic Lite')."
Peter is a Eugepćan Orthodox Catholic and Ivan seems to be a Russian Orthodox.
Expy: Anyone familiar with Elfen High (of which this is a Spiritual Successor of) will realize instantly that Principal Damien Seward is, believe it or not, Damien Seward.
He's becoming less and less of a copy as time goes on. In fact, the only similarities they share anymore, beyond their names of course, is that they both like sex. Like a lot.
Fluffy the Terrible: Fluffy Hitler Lucifer the First. Subverted by the fact, that despite him being a miniature version of Godzilla, he's pretty damn useless. Specifically, he can't breath fire and is pretty weak. He can piss acid though, which Vernon learned the hard way. See Deathbringer the Adorable.
Gayngst: Within fifteen minutes of discovering he's Gay over Gabriel, Peter contemplates suicide, assumes the fetal position, asks for forgiveness from God, and is berated for being gay by the voice in the back of his head... in Latin.
Genre Savvy: This was Mika's defining characteristic before Mr. G did away with her.
Vernon inherited the characteristic immediately and has put it to good use, as it is his prime means of manipulating Mr. G and his stories.
Everyone has their moments, really. What do you expect from something this meta?
Human Shield: Hailey used Mark as a mind-controlled human shield during the Alley Battle scene, however the Doc managed to wake Mark up by shooting into the ground, snapping him into life so that he could attack Hailey, resulting in injuries to the kidney and lungs that hospitalized him.
Imperial Stormtrooper Marksmanship Academy: Inverted. While the mooks tend to be fair shots, and in the case of certain villains, capable of picking off the enemy with machine pistols from a few hundred feet while leaving specific bystanders alone, Fred is incapable of really using a firearm to maximum ability due to missing an arm, the Doc outright refuses to use a firearm claiming that he is incapable of hitting the broadside of a barn from the inside despite having years on the Sri Lankan frontlines (as a research psychologist), and Mark's aim has been shown to vary with the times.
Inconvenient Summons: When everyone is warped to the docks by G. Especially inconvenient for Hailey, who was in nothing but her underwear at the time.
Jerk Ass: Mark Ameriga, amoral lawyer, sexist, and fan of''Twilight''. Towards the beginning, he nearly murders a drunk for vomiting on his suit. Also counts as Token Evil Teammate, although he averts Stupid Evil by, among other things, willingly providing his own money and contacts to get the rest of the group guns and other equipment they may need.
when he thought he was going to die, he mellowed and became relatively nice. Any hopes of him changing his ways ended when he tried to take the MacGuffin by force for no discernible reason after dropping off the face of the earth.
Damien, to a certain extent. He's raped at least one person and can be, at times, Ax-Crazy. If the others didn't write him off as just another psychopath moron, they might take the time to hate him like Vernon does.
Hailey never gets any comeuppance for her murderous blood-sucking habits. Of course, none of the vampires do.
Damien in a big way. He took the already degrading political balance of the vampires, added in some hawks, and started a war.
MacGuffin: The Coiled Viper, which can grant whoever wields it amazing powers. They were sent on this mission by Nicholas Carry, the Viper's owner. See Ancient Artifact.
Carry's compass, which could track the Viper, temporarily became one of these when the Calacas (a tribe of vampires that Vernon had been forced to ally with that later became the party's foes) stole it.
Not Afraid of You Anymore: G loses a massive bit of his bite to the group, when he pitches a giant tantrum over Them obtaining the Viper. Punctuated nicely, by Earl throwing his empty flash at his head, and flipping him off
No Such Thing as Wizard Jesus: Addressed in-universe. Gabriel tells Vernon not to make any Jesus jokes when he's resurrected, and Vernon occasionally entertains the notion that Mr. G is God. He doesn't mind much being Satan, either.
Oh, Crap: When Mr. G first assigned the heroes their mission, many of them did not believe in his powers. Then he turned the ground to blood...
Vernon, when he realized that they left Mark behind in a burning building.
