-> ''"We are gods among men."''

''[[MeaningfulName Divinity]]'' is a forum-based roleplay on the ''Website/GaiaOnline'' website; the thread of which can be found here [[http://www.gaiaonline.com/forum/series-related-miscellaneous-role-play/adv-ic/t.73507473/ here]].

A historic fantasy set in a pseudo-[[JidaiGeki Feudal Japan]], ''Divinity'' tells a story that -- quite literally -- spans centuries and entire lifetimes. On the surface, it is a story of war told on a personal level: the conflict between the [[{{Samurai}} elite forces]] of the conquerors and the conquered, the Country of the Sun's Eikou and the Land of the Moon's Wardens. Beside them are a mix-and-match group of {{Youkai}} who [[FantasticRacism may or may not be able to stand each other]]. Each individual's dedication and reason for fighting are entirely their own, be it moral or not. But that's only the tip of the iceberg -- some of the {{Samurai}} aren't human at all. They're the living reincarnations of [[PhysicalGod gods]], reborn after a brutal fight with their greatest enemy who just so happens, unfortunately, to also have been reborn.
!!This roleplay contains examples of:

* AllWorkVsAllPlay : Getsuryuu versus Aisari or Arashi.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking : The captains are the strongest of their respective groups.
* BigBad : Yamata-no-Orochi.
* DarkAndTroubledPast : Lots. Actually, pretty much everyone.
* FriendlyRivalry : Sakuma and Akihiro.
* GodInHumanForm : Eight of them, to be exact -- though it's more a case of {{Reincarnation}}.
* ImmortalityBeginsAtTwenty : Likely.
* Myth/JapaneseMythology : Adapted and changed, but clearly the inspiration.
* JerkAss : There's a few of them lurking around.
* JidaiGeki : It's pretty much a copy-paste of the Bakumatsu era, plus sun or moon motif depending on country.
* LightIsNotGood : Played with; the ''sun'' country is the conquerors, while the moon [[DarkIsNotEvil just wants their freedom back]].
* RedOniBlueOni : Sakuma and Akihiro. Sakuma as the calm-headed [[TheStoic stoic]] captain and Akihiro as the HotBlooded, temperamental vice-captain.
* {{Samurai}} : Every single human in the cast is one.
* ThemeNaming : All over the place.
* {{Youkai}} : Many, including {{Kitsune}}, Oni, {{Yukionna}}, Ookami, Karasu {{Tengu}} (and a Yatagarasu), {{Nekomata}}, and even a Dragon.
