𝚃𝙷𝙸𝚂 𝚆𝙰𝚂 𝙷𝙾𝙼𝙴

THIS WAS HOME is a discord survival roleplay set in a harsh post-apocalyptic world that's succumbed to a deadly mutagenic pandemic. Our story is heavily influenced by intense themes of grit, grime, thrill, and horror. All to be expected when you're fighting for your life. Endure or fall. You're out of options. Below is the verse lore developed thus far.(all images can be opened in a new tab for a larger view.) * OMIN: THE BARRIER CITYLittle is known about Omin prior to the outbreak. Rumor is that it was once a thriving city of possibility. It had it's problems, just like anywhere else, but.. It was home. At least until the Erema Virus hit the place like a bomb. Within the first few days hundreds upon thousands became infected. Suffering until they'd become what now hunts the streets. Promising a cycle of sickening death and rebirth. If you could even call it a life at all. For a blessing the walls managed to withstand those monstrosities. Giving survivors a place to flee and begin again. The environmental boundary keeping their shrinking bubble livable for the foreseeable future. Can't say they didn't make it count.   CITY DISTRICTSOmin is compromised of five distinct districts. * ENVIRONMENTAL BOUNDARY The massive outlining towers that provide all of Omin with a stabilized living area. Each one has no signs of entry and remain resilient to all means of exterior tampering. Making studying them very difficult. Those who leave their safety area die. Collapsing into convulsions and seemingly fighting for air before they go silent. Most assume the area beyond to be uninhabitable due to toxins in the planet's natural atmosphere. * WASTES A large valley range that encircles the city wall. Survivors took to this place when the city was lost to the infected. A bold few establishing safe spaces for other survivors, attempting to restore society. Many hike and hunt through the hills between settlements. A variety of wild game and fishing alongside good soil making living here sustainable. * SUBURBS The entry layer of the city within the walls. It's occupied by abandoned neighborhoods. Decaying homes, apartment buildings, small businesses, most were picked clean early on. Though, if you're lucky, there may be lingering spoils. Just watch your back, these places aren't always abandoned. * PLAZA Formerly the city's downtown urban area. Various crumbling businesses line the streets. Being people's go-to place to shop and enjoy a night out once upon a time. Reavers enjoy laying traps and ambushes here for unsuspecting survivors. * CENTRE The prodigious center of the city. Skyscrapers huddle one another, nearly blocking out the sky. High end abodes and important establishments reside here. Though few have been fully explored due to the rampant dangers. The virus began here. Leading to stronger variants now fighting for territory. It's suicidal to remain here long without extensive preparations and supplies, especially after dark. NEVER. GO. ALONE. * SUBTERRANEAN The ominous underground of the city. Sewers and railway tunnels have created a makeshift network. Snaking all across the underbelly of the city in various levels of decay and destruction. Within these darkened veins lurks powerful infected and fanatics. Countless horror stories circulate around these tunnels. Dissuading the fearful from delving into the shadows. Better that than risk shaking hands with the Hag herself.  OMIN MAP AND THREAT LEVELS   FACTIONS * 𝚂𝙴𝚃𝚃𝙻𝙴𝚁𝚂 People who have made the best of a bad situation. Working together to rebuild society outside the city walls through established communities.TERRITORIES* Walden: Located Southwest of the city barrier, it is the largest of the allied communities. Settlers have created a sizable residential shanty town. Their numbers keeping stray infected and reavers at bay.* Landow: Located Northwest of the city barrier, it is a smaller agricultural community. Supplying crops to allied settlements in exchange for other necessities and protection. * 𝚂𝚃𝚁𝙸𝙳𝙴𝚁𝚂: People that make a living as roaming merchants for Kelna Outpost. Scavenging goods or using their unique skills in exchange for credits and favors.TERRITORIES* Kelna Outpost: Located along the West wall of the city barrier, it is the hub of commerce between the allied communities. A place to obtain items of varying rarities and advertise available work to the public for credits. It's also the only secured entrance into the city on this side of the wall. Those in good standing with the Kelna's become affiliated, earning the title of Strider. This gains them a personal lot in the outpost, to setup a home or shop, and the benefits of their support. * 𝚁𝙴𝙰𝚅𝙴𝚁𝚂: People who have turned to malice and greed to get ahead. They are shameless bandits that plunder and pillage to grow the infamy of their 'family'.TERRITORIES* Pirn's Rot: Located on the east wall of the city barrier, it is a cesspool of questionable individuals. The Reavers rule this territory. It's a vile town of sin that isn't for the faint of heart. Guts, goods, or compliance are the only way you might leave unscathed. * 𝙵𝙰𝙽𝙰𝚃𝙸𝙲𝚂: People who chose blind faith over survival. Worshipping the elusive Hag of Omin, the first of the Infected. It's rumored that if a follower finds her during their pilgrimage she will grant them her final gift, ascending to become one of her chosen.TERRITORIES* The Hollows: Located in the crumbling subterranean of the city, it is a sprawling labyrinth riddled with danger and mystery. Those with a shred of self preservation don't come down here without good reason. Fanatics roam about trying to further their faith. While powerful infected prowl the shadows patiently. Rumor has it that the Hag may even lurk somewhere down here. Though few have ever sighted her. Such claims are usually brushed off as lies or strained eyes playing tricks in the dark. * 𝚆𝙰𝚈𝚆𝙰𝚁𝙳𝚂: People who have chosen to remain unaffiliated. Traveling freely across Omin as independent nomads. They're treated with suspicion and scrutiny by others. A few bad eggs making them out to be the black sheep of society. They'd never know that most of them are just trying to get by, same as them. Most don't bother asking.TERRITORIES* None: They go wherever they please.   CLASSES * 🥊 𝙱𝚁𝙰𝚆𝙻𝙴𝚁: The unyielding bulwark. They rely on strength and determination to get up close and personal with most threats. Acting as a defensive wall that fights back twice as hard. They are usually in heavy gear and stick to melee weapons.* 🪖 𝙶𝚄𝙽𝙽𝙴𝚁: The dutiful soldier. They rely on quick thinking and potent firepower to shut down hostile situations. Ready to give their all at a moment's notice. They are usually in medium to heavy gear and use short and medium range firearms.* 👁️ 𝚂𝙲𝙾𝚄𝚃: The sharp support. They rely on a keen eye to assess their surroundings and pick off targets at a distance. Practiced marksmanship limiting unwanted surprises, mostly. They are usually in medium to light gear and use ranged weapons.* 💊 𝙼𝙴𝙳𝙸𝙲: The mindful caregiver. They rely on their medical knowledge to help others. Providing aid to the best of their ability and resources. They are usually in light gear and use close quarter weapons.* 🛠️ 𝙴𝙽𝙶𝙸𝙽𝙴𝙴𝚁: The clever tinkerer. They rely on their experience to perform maintenance and make improvements. Their innovations can sometimes offer convenient solutions. They are usually in medium to light gear and use melee and medium range weapons.* 🎒 𝚂𝙲𝙰𝚅𝙴𝙽𝙶𝙴𝚁: The resourceful scrounger. They rely on their instincts, and a little luck, to find the prizes among the junk. Their discoveries often lead to valuable assets and information. They are usually in light gear and use melee weapons.* 👤 𝙲𝙸𝚅𝙸𝙻𝙸𝙰𝙽: The capable citizen. They take on more domestic duties to make settlements function smoothly. Such as farming, perimeter security, or simply raising their families. They are usually in minimal gear and use small simple weapons.   TERMINOLOGYMega thread of frequently used world terms.More will be established as discoveries are made. * 𝙲𝚁𝙴𝙳𝚂: Short for credits. They are rectangular metallic silver coins that can fit in the palm of the hand. They come printed in values of 1, 5, 10, 20, 50, and 100. It is the universal currency of Omin.* 𝙲𝚁𝙴𝚆𝚂: A catch-all term for grouped up survivors. Crews must have a minimum of three members to be recognized officially. These members tend to affiliate with the same factions or a mutual goal. Taking on jobs to assist fellow survivors, their factions, or themselves. Crews who make a name for themselves get more creds for their work.* 𝚁𝙰𝙸𝙻: Refers to the railway network established in Omin. Allowing for unhindered, albeit risky, travel in the more destroyed or dangerous parts of the city.* 𝙿𝙱'𝚂: Short for pherobombs. They are improvised smoke grenades created from the carefully extracted glands of infected. This is reduced into an ash-like substance that puts off a potent scent, drawing infected. Due to how difficult it is to source undamaged glands they are a pricey specialty item.* 𝚃𝙷𝙴 𝙲𝙾𝙼𝙿𝙰𝚂𝚂: An odd symbol found in the city. They are highly obscure, being discovered in bizarre but well hidden places. Most ignore them as graffiti while others are convinced it's a marker for hidden caches nearby. Inconsistent finds and dangerous goose chases have made theory testing difficult. * THE EREMA VIRUSThough authentic sources are dwindling it's said the virus began nearly 80 years ago. Most of those around in the initial outbreak have since passed on or have grown too old to recall the event coherently. Any who were children in those times only vaguely recall the mania that followed. Documentation is extremely scarce. If there are any available sources they are likely in places too dangerous to reach now. But nothing is impossible.There are a few consistent details between each retelling. A feminine figure, seemingly covered in sickly flowing grime, wandered into the centre. People were naturally terrified of the creature before them and called the police. Devastation followed. The creature lashed out, infecting anything that was exposed to the sludge.Before long screams filled the streets. People running for their lives from unthinkable monsters spawned in her wake. The figure would disappear into a crater formed in the chaos. Leaving the first wave of infected to spread the virus. Wreaking unspeakable havoc on Omin.The rest is history.   METHODS OF INFECTIONIndividuals can be infected in the following ways: * BITES: The most common cause. The rate of infection depends on the source of the bite. Bites by class C and B infected can take days to weeks. Being very dependent on the physical state of the victim. While bites from Class A's will take mere hours. In the event of a limb bite it's recommended to amputate for the highest chance of survival. Nothing is guaranteed.* ALPHA STINGERS: Due to the aggressiveness of the Alpha strand one sting causes rapid mutation. Turning the victim into whatever variant the virus deems suitable.* THE HAG'S TOUCH: It's rumored that coming into physical contact with the Hag of Omin causes instantaneous mutation. The sludge that her body produces being the most raw concentration of the virus.  STAGES OF INFECTIONOnce exposed to the virus the following will occur: * FEVER [ Onset - 1 day ]The virus will attack the immune system to prevent any delays in spreading. Debilitating the host with an intense fever that causes growing pain and delirium as time goes on.* NUTRIMENT AVERSION [ Onset - 2 days ]The host will become unable to eat or drink. Any attempts being violently rejected by the body. The taste buds fool the host to make them find all offerings repulsive and inedible.* MEDICINAL AVERSION [ Onset - 3 days ]The host will become unable to handle medications or sedatives. They will begin wildly convulsing if exposed to further treatments.* ORGAN FAILURE [ Onset - 4 days ]The host's body will begin to gradually succumb to the virus. Attacking the vitals until it can no longer continue functioning. At this point the host will die or integrate with the virus.* FULL GESTATION [ Onset - 4 to 5 days ]Should the host prove resilient they will integrate with the virus, becoming a Wretch. If they die in the final stages of infection they will inevitably become a Dragger. This can happen as fast as minutes postmortem. It's recommended that patients are humanely put down and cremated before this occurs to prevent further exposure risk.   NOTES ON THE INFECTED In the years following the initial outbreak some took it upon themselves to study the infected variants. Compiling knowledge from abandoned data and their fellow survivors. It's thanks to them that many have lived to fight another day.  THREAT ASSESSMENT Infected have been categorized in a letter-grading threat level system for ease of reference.* 𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙲: Minor threat. Can easily be dispatched.* 𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙱: Average threat. Killable but proceed with caution.* 𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙰: Major threat. Difficult to kill, better off avoided.* 𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝚇: Extreme threat. Near unkillable, retreat or die.  KNOWN INFECTED * 𝙳𝚁𝙰𝙶𝙶𝙴𝚁𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙲] Created from the death of afflicted hosts. Roams mindlessly and lives only to eat. Unintelligent, lethargic, but persistent. Reacts to noise and sudden movements. Tend to gather in hordes. Easily killed by destroying the brain. * 𝚆𝚁𝙴𝚃𝙲𝙷𝙴𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙱] Created from living hosts. Physically superior to Draggers and much more reactive. Capable of running after their prey in a frenzy. Extremely volatile. Cripple the legs to better ensure survival. Like Draggers they're killed by destroying the brain. * 𝙵𝙴𝚁𝙰𝙻𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙱] Created from animal hosts. Similar to Wretches they are extremely reactive and vicious. Depending on the species of animal infected it exaggerates their primary qualities to hunt more efficiently. Can be killed by destroying the brain. * 𝙿𝚁𝙾𝚆𝙻𝙴𝚁𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙰] Evolved infected. These creatures are effective ambush predators. Stalking their prey out of sight until they're ready to strike. Capable of impressive feats of agility. Can only be killed by destroying it's heart. Usually found on one of the upper rear legs. * 𝚂𝙷𝚁𝙸𝙴𝙺𝙴𝚁𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙰] Evolved Infected. Though scrawny these creatures rely on luring to survive. Powerful lungs and sound amplifying wings carry their deafening screech in a wide radius, alerting nearby infected. The volume of this cry will permanently damage or impair hearing if survivors are exposed to it at close range. Can only be killed by destroying the lungs. These are located at the back of it's gaping maw. * 𝙼𝙰𝚂𝙷𝙴𝚁𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝙰] Evolved Infected. This creature is a juggernaut among it's kind. Using the leftover remnants of corpses to regenerate it's mass. For all it's brawn it lacks higher intelligence. Just don't underestimate the raw power of it's berserker state. Can only be killed by destroying the three nerve bundles that form at random on it's body. * 𝙰𝙻𝙿𝙷𝙰𝚂 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝚇] Prime infected. With high intelligence, strength, and mobility they dominate anything perceived as a threat. Due to being totally blind and deaf these creatures heavily rely on their hypersensitive sense of smell. Their behavioral patterns are boggling to the rare few witnesses. Claiming to see them consuming only other infected. If they catch a human they will instead use their back stingers to infect the victim. They are the apex predator of Omin's lower levels. There have been only three alphas sighted to date. Currently there is no known way to kill them. Only pherobombs can deter them momentarily to allow an attempt at escape. * 𝚂𝙿𝙴𝙲𝙸𝙼𝙴𝙽 𝚉𝙴𝚁𝙾 [𝙲𝙻𝙰𝚂𝚂 𝚇] The originator of the virus. Dubbed the Hag of Omin, most believe her to be nothing but a rumor. Something to dissuade the foolish from heading to the abandoned levels below. The credibility of former sightings is always met with suspicion. Yet in the darkest depths of the city something lurks. It's intentions still unknown. Some fanatics have formed a religion around her existence. Believing she is the path to higher enlightenment. They actively worship and make pilgrimages into the depths in hopes of being chosen for her 'blessing'. This information will be updated as stories unfold.LAST UPDATED: APRIL 14TH, 2024Update Details: Added first public draft of verse info.IF YOU LIKE WHAT YOU SEE WHY NOT JOIN IN?⪼ 𝚃𝙷𝙸𝚂 𝚆𝙰𝚂 𝙷𝙾𝙼𝙴 ⪻

Headcanon Corner

1. Poppins quest to make hell a better place has led him to bring many mortals to their deaths in hell. A not insignificant number of them are reborn in hell as demons. For obvious reasons, he prefers to avoid these individuals. 2. Poppins has two methods for entering the mortal world. One is via analog television signals. As the world switched to digital, this method swiftly became less and less viable. The second method is via dreams. There are no materials in hell for crafting dreams, so he uses happy memories from his life. As he's running out of materials, he's running out of time to accomplish his goals and is becoming desperate. 3. Poppins, while his goal can be considered nobel, is anything but. He will thoughtlessly use others to achieve his goals even to their detriment (if all the dead children weren't a clue). As such, he has no interest in the Hazbin Hotel's prospect of demon rehabilitation, but rather sees it as another means to his own ends and will use it as such. 4. Poppins despises the Radio Demon, he sees him as the ultimate obstacle to his goal of making hell a decent place to live; and as long as he's around it will always be at risk. However, he would never say that to his face, as the difference in their power is so great that Poppins would be killed a thousand times before he could say "put up your dukes!"...that and he's a bit of a coward. 5. Poppins, aside from being able to wallop someone over the head with his cane or deliver a one liner, is completely useless in combat. If things get hairy for him, he keeps a few vials of nightmares to distract the aggressor; think Scarecrows fear gas mixed with Spellbinder's hallucinations. He will then flee for the hills. 6. Poppins has transformed so many of his memories into dreams to be used, he can remember very little of himself. He has no idea what he once looked like, what his name was, or any details about himself. This is why he has no true body, his existence has been traded away; all that remains is the facade he put on to be more personable. At this point, the mask is his true face. 7. Poppins avoids demons from the lust circle whenever possible. While he doesn't remember much from his life; he does remember that he was murdered for having an affair and so avoids confronting that vice again. Self improvement is not on his schedule. While he is not lacking in confidence and is a decent flirt, he doesn't want to tempt fate and potentially fall down that rabbit hole again when there's work to be done. 8. Poppins exclusively brings children to hell to accomplish his goals. He feels only innocence can possibly work and adults would just flee in terror or try to slay the demons of hell. Unsurprisingly, they don't tend to survive long. 9. Poppins can change his form within dreams. Under most circumstances he doesn't see a need to do so, but in the case of nightmares, he will make that extra effort. 10. Poppins' screen cuts to static whenever he is unconscious, sleeping or otherwise. During these moments he will occasionally dream about the fractured remaining memories of his life. During these moments, there will be shapes within the static reflecting what he sees and sounds within the white noise resembling what's being said. 11. Poppins no longer remember what he used to look like, his current form was created by his subconscious. The embodiment of his persona is in his cane. He believes he can control it with his mind, but rather it's an extension of his subconscious mind reacting to his will. 12. Poppins' wife in life is within the Wrath ring of hell. Those sent to hell for mortal sin are cursed to have their final emotions frozen forever. So the emotional anguish of a cheating husband and the rage at his denial of responsibility are all she can feel forever more and can only experience relief through the suffering of others. She has spent her entire existence in hell believing that he went to heaven and has been cursing him ever since.

Since it seems that people are ignoring the fact that my pages are Private Pages. I suppose I have to write a public Service Announcement like my girlfriend 🇳​🇪​🇷​🇦​🇫​🇮​🇴​🇷​🇪​. had done so on her main page Tʜᴇ Sᴜɴ. If you see "Private Page." in my headline and see "penned by beyondthepaleelf" In the playby section of the roleplay details. Hello, that's one of my alt Pages. Sorry, 🇳​🇪​🇷​🇦​🇫​🇮​🇴​🇷​🇪​. Darling but I'm stealing your explination because it is not only a mature stance, but I happen to agree with it:"The reason for my closed List on all my accounts is simple. I'm not adding anyone who sends me a friend request. I will flat out deny people. A closed List LITERALLY means that my page is a PRIVATE page. This means that I will ONLY roleplay with people whom I add (I send a request to).This isn't as big of a deal as people like to make it out to be. I just prefer to surround myself with people who understand that this is a hobby and that people have other hobbies (and jobs) outside of roleplay. "I am not sending requests at this time and that may or may not change. best wishes, beyondthepaleelf

Goddess' of Mercy

Goddess of MercyMiaShe is often mistaken as an angel due to her angel like wings and as such has been dubbed Angel of Mercy by some. However Mia is one who is blinded to the act of mercy, she feels she must answer to any and all cries of mercy, even if its just to take advantage of her.  It is because of this that Mia is the most dangerous deity of mercy as she will believe anything is being merciful at this point be it sexual or malicious. Killing is an act of mercy, cheating or using another is merciful in her golden eyes.Personality: Cheerful, Warm, Sweet, Misguided, Sadistic, CuriousGoddess of MercyBeatriceUnlike her misguided sister Mia, Beatrice among others shown upon those deserving mercy. She is not as easy to trick as Mia and in some cases will play along if only to gauge your worth. Angel of Death suits her more as she will openly end a life for slandering the call of mercy. However if your honest she is docile if not a bit amused in teasing you to bits. You can however win her over with crepes and various pastry delights. Often she shadows Mia to assure she does not kill in a false act of mercy claiming.Personality:Calm, Blunt, Indifferent, Carefree, Mysterious, Cold

  The reason for my closed List on all my accounts is simple. I'm not adding anyone who sends me a friend request. I will flat out deny people. A closed List LITERALLY means that my page is a PRIVATE page. This means that I will ONLY roleplay with people whom I add (I send a request to) However, I'm not sending requests to anyone besides  𝑐𝑟𝜎𝑚𝜔𝜀𝑙𝑙 and beyondthepaleelf. This isn't as big of a deal as people like to make it out to be. I just prefer to surround myself with people who understand that this is a hobby and that people have other hobbies (and jobs) outside of roleplay.I have known 𝑐𝑟𝜎𝑚𝜔𝜀𝑙𝑙 since 2009 and beyondthepaleelf since 2022. They're great writers who a lot of people just snub, so I'm just writing with them because I adore their writing and find that I'm more comfortable writing with them over complete strangers on here. ( My Profiles are only here and semi active because of them) I'm not interested in writing with other people currently as I just have other things going on that take priority, it may or may not change in the near future.Only time can tell. Best regards, 🇳​🇪​🇷​🇦​🇫​🇮​🇴​🇷​🇪​.

Treasure Hunting

Just a short list of ideas that popped into my head regarding potential stories with Lara.  These are fairly open-ended and have plenty of room to flesh out other ideas, and add to them.  These are not end all be all, but something to help get the creative juices flowing. ------------------------------------------------  The Pharoh's Secret It's not a secret that Egyptian history is long and decorated with blood.  Yet, they managed to build one of the greates monuments and cultures to ever exist.  Ever since, explorers and treasure seekers have combed the endless dunes for long-lost secrets that they may have left behind.  As modern technology advances, the grains of sand become more transparent and reveal what they've been protecting for so long.  Following a lead found about a secret Pharoh that ruled for just one year, Lara has found a forbidden and hidden hieroglyphic detailing the potential source of a vast vault of treasures from all around the world kept by this unnamed Pharoh.  One such treasure is hinted to be the Circlet of Ra.  The wearer apparently is able to cheat death and even bring back those souls that have long departed...  (Places of travel:  Egypt, Sudan, Jordan) (Themes:  Thriller, Exploration, Slice of Life, Mature)  Beneath the World's Lungs The Amazon stands as more than just the largest rainforest.  Housing perhaps thousands of undocumented species of plant, animal and insect, the vast canopies have many secrets hiding beneath them.  A recent visit to the region has led Lara to overhear a potential informant to Trinity that a long-lost tribal city is just beneath the surface, and that perhaps a underground network of cities run the length of the forest.  These cities have never been recorded or touched by man.  Whispers of rituals convening with unknown deities granting supernatural powers to tribal shamans have been spreading through Brazil.  Trinity seeks to grasp this power for themselves and use it as a bargaining chip to obtain world control.  Lara has to find these cities and learn if the rumors are true and stop Trinity before they can acquire these powers and to help preserve these ancient ruins knowing that Trinity is not gentle when uncovering what they seek.(Places of travel:  Brazil, Andes Mountains, Chile, Colombia, Peru)(Themes:  Action, Adventure, Supernatural, Mature)  Cracks in the Ice Conspiracies have been rising in the last few decades about a land hidden past the great frozen wasteland of Antartica.  Tales of lush grasslands and ancient forests and even dinosaurs that survived the meteor.  Entire continents not mapped and perhaps even civilizations that remain sealed off by the great Arctic Wall.  Just the ramblings of crazen online theorists right?  That was until verified video evidence was mysteriously spread online showing a aerial view of a massive wall of ice, and beyond was the rumored green land that stretched beyond the horizon.  Ever since, the video has been removed and all talk silenced.  But not before it reached Lara Croft.  She's no stranger to following crackpot theories to fruition, and this is no different.  Gathering her will and assembling a team she seeks to prove once and for all if this secret land exists.(Places of travel:  Antartica, Surrey Enlgand, ???) (Themes: Adventure, Mystery, Suspense, Mature, World-Building)

Exhale

Now! I have been debating on this, but I feel this needs to be addressed, I am mentally drained, didn't sleep until 3am so if there are any spelling errors or messed up, I apologize. I'm currently at work too.    Lets dive into it.  At the halfway mark of Feburary, I joined a server, called Hell Scape as well another server Helluva Hazbin[Which is the first server I joined], soon after another one, Hazbin Chaos. I hung out more in Hell Scape because I thought the owner, Lute[Back then Vaggie] was cool, and had the idea of remaking my old server[Which is still up], which is still around on an old account.     I got a message from Lute, her disappointment and claims that the servers were in competition with one another, which isn't true.      I had the idea of helping the Hazvin/Helluva community by bringing in more people from different places, most of the people that joined my server isn't from Anirp, some are friends I knew, others from Tumblr, Toyhou.se, disboard. NOW If you know about Disboard, that is a website that people use to advertise their servers.  https://disboard.org/search?keyword=Hazbin+hotel   Now, after the whole message Lute sent, I thought things were fine, nothing about my server was being said, at least, not to my knowledge. That was until a month later my friend randomly leaving Hell Scape, and she does this, even with me. Give her time and space she will come back.    Lute didn't do that. She did reach out to her, asking if she left the server, she did. Asked if there was something wrong, but before my friend had a chance to reply back, Lute already blocked her without giving her a chance to explain.      This is when the whole situation happened with my Helluva Hotel server. I just got done with work, I got pinged in Hell Scape so I checked it out, realized my friend left the server, the mention of everyone leaving Hell Scape and joining mine, which isn't true, at least not to me, cause again, I've been advertising on different platforms.     Alastor messaged me about the whole situation and one of the things I did was share out their server in my server. Three of my servers, Chainsaw Man, Devil May Cry, and Helluva Hotel, because I wanted to support them.     My other friend left the server as well, which Alastor messaged them too.     Which everyone knows how this ended up, here on Anirp.   Lets rewind back to around Feb-March, Lute wanted a commission from my friend, don't remember what month it was, the commission is about 50 dollars, which is a fair price.   When my friend left the server and the whole shebang happened, I thought that was the end of it until yesterday.   I only vented in DMs about what happened to me with Lute and Alastor. Screenshots and everything. I wasn't saying anything on anirp, kept my mouth shut until yesterday.    Lute fought with Paypal to get a refund for a commission she now claims she didn't like.  A month later.   Which isn't fair to my friend at all as she worked on this commission and let me tell you, that is cheap.    Lute claims it wasn't involved with the server, then what else? Low on funds? Just petty because my friend left Hell Scape? What?    I paid 100 dollars for an artwork, I didn't like it and I took it. I'm not going to fight paypal for a refund because they worked hard on it.    All of this, didn't need to happen, but because of you either being jealous or whatever, things are blowing up in your face. The backlash, you try to hind it by acting tough and having your partner come on streams with his own and you jumping in, then try to backtrack.  You know what you are doing, you're not a kid.    As for the minor that was brought up, you know full well we have a system to protect our server from minors. You were in my server for awhile, never spoke besides putting your intro. That minor was never let in, Alastor knew that as well. Gave me weird vibes.

The heavy drum of rain overhead finally stirred him from his slumber. Well, to call it slumber would be a lie. It was more the extreme exhaustion of a body that couldn't take it anymore, so it....shut off. A pained groan echoed in the pitch darkness, an absent hand reaching out to pat just--where the hell was he? A short lift of his hand of what he assumed to be the roof revealed the neon buzzing light of the hotel he was staying at. It was better for a stakeout than having to drive back into the city each night, it didn't matter now; the case wouldn't be resolved. It'd grow bone-chillingly cold before all the players disappeared from any note.The faces of the witnesses would fade away, along with their confessions. Evidence would be stored away, under lock and key, and soon the victim's name would never be splashed across the front news page again. A buried cold case....buried deep in the city's diseased underbelly. Buzzz, Buzzzz, Buzzzz. It cast a constant red glow on him, finally his senses kicking in. Another groan as he grit his teeth to sit up, even the light was hurting his eyes. Detective Dean had about six shots in him. Three were bourbon, two rum, and the last was from a .38 slugger the Doc could never pull out of his shoulder.  On a rainy, gloomy night like this, he could feel it all.  Further pushing up this "roof" he was enclosed in, he slowly began to realize the stench....he was in a dumpster. "F***in--!!" He coughed, quick to stand upright, bringing along food scraps attached to his brown trench coat, stained from...however long he'd been sleeping here?! Pulling himself free, he could already hear his ex-wife's words. Not that Nancy would dare say it, but she didn't have to. She was a cold woman; he loved that about her and told it like it was.  All it'd take was a look and he'd know she thought he was: right where you belong.A couple of shots weren't taking him out of this city. There was a better chance of a snowball in Hell than that ever happening. Oh, he was invincible, alright. You could be when you adapted so easily to the sinister side of things. It was astonishing how quickly the pull of the trigger felt like nothing anymore. The clean-up was annoying as hell, but it was blood-stained for sure. No matter how much one scrubbed. You could scrub the skin raw, and it was still there, right? It was still...in the mind, somehow, too.  Unless you worked for justice, of course, because in the stories, the good guys win and the bad guys lose. They lose big time, sometimes.Or they wake up in a dumpster to escape their thoughts. Who gives a f***, huh? Weren't many good things in this damned city anyway, including the idiot tossing a banana peel off his shoulder with a grimace.

My Rules

My rules are going to be simple and to the point. More will be added as they come up.1: I reply when I feel comfortable responding to the message. If you try to push me for a reply by harassing me over and over again, you'll be removed. I do my best to ensure everyone gets replied to in a timely fashion and that people get something back as soon as I'm able to send something. I clean out my inbox of messages that haven't been replied to in over 7 days. If someone has been online but is ignoring the message, they'll be removed after 7 days have passed. If they've been away due to RL reasons, they'll be granted exemption from this part until they return and replies start up again.2: Story over Erotic. Plain and simple here, Folks. Romance and/or Smut stories have to be earned over time. Don't come at me after we've started talking, trying to get me to sleep with you. It really makes you look needy when you start pushing for sex the same day/week we became friends. Chemistry matters to me. I've been used before, and I'm not going to f*** someone only for them to go MIA afterward, but I see them being online all the time. It makes me feel like I got used even more when you pull that sh*t.3: Picture comments are always acceptable, but don't be offended when I don't comment on your pictures. I am 100% done with doing picture comments on other people's stuff, mostly due to other users ruining the comment. You have no idea how annoying it is to leave a heartfelt comment only to have someone else drop a comment afterward that just trashes it. It's not a d*ck measuring contest, folks. If someone comments on a picture, don't be a d*ck and try to one-up that person. You come off as a d*ck.4: Don't expect pet names or any form of nicknames. Those are 100% reserved for any RP significant other I have. It just leaves a bad taste in my mouth to call someone a nickname and I can't stand when people use certain names when addressing someone. So don't get salty when I use your characters name often.5: I don't do body-swapping stories. I will let you know how it ends. Your Original Body will die. I will instantly commit suicide in your body and end all conversations with you. I have absolutely zero interest in Body swapping, and this is the only warning you have. If that's your thing, that's fine, but don't bring me into it.6: Real Life takes priority over things here. I understand if RL has to take your focus from time to time. If you need to step away for a bit due to it, that's fine. I won't hold it against you. A heads-up about being away is always welcomed. I'll be sure to give folks here a proper heads-up if I'm going to be away from the site for any RL reasons.

Twelve families

The 3 main clans are humans with monster blood unlike other families who are fully monsters. Sauronmatai clanAlso known as: Dragon-slayer clan, DraconiansRegent: Vladimir AristoiOne of 3 main clans, along with Asuras and Daevas. In reality though they're currently the weakest out of 3 and are considered as such due to past infamy. The clan has came out of the shadows hundred years ago, reestablishing the structures and relationships with other clans. Unchained are Draconians which can manifest unique abilities, they aren't tied to specific bloodline and as such can manifest in anyone who meets proper characteristics, though there's only 7 of them. The current leaders are a regent in stead of a missing king - the Double-scaled Unchained. There were attempts to find remaining royal lines to no avail as almost all lines went extinct. Sigismund was outsider, he was despised by councilors if not for Alexander intervention he would have been executed. The situation changed when he manifested double-scales, occurrence that hadn't been noticed since 5th century AD. Now he's expected to rule the clan that was barely hanging on threads with various sides fighting each other for dominance. Specialization -Notable members are: Arshaka the founder of clan, Sigurd/Siegfried son of Odin, Augustine the Sage, Vladimir 'Infernatos' Aristoi, Anna "the Seer" Aristoi, Sigismund Aristoi    Ancestral treasure: Dragonslayer - Anti-magic sword made out of Dragon king parts, it's one of twelve ancestral treasures. It's mana nullification is so strong that when wielder uses its special ability, everyone caught within certain radius can't use magic with user included. Daeva clanCurrent leader: Indra Brahmastra Currently the most powerful and influential of twelve families, Daeva clan is powerhouse which endured many centuries both good and bad. They are at enmity with Asura clan since beginning of their existence, Sophisticated vs Simple etc. They are gifted with mental powers and skilled with magic, though they are physically the weakest out of the 3 main clans they are the fastest. "Whenever golden eyed child appears, there's great fortune and calamity bound to follow" Golden-eyed individual is either a Prophet or Clan leader, nonetheless they are respected individual. Specialization - Variety ServiceAncestral treasure: Lightning Vajra - Immensely powerful artifact, it's the only ranged weapon amongst 3 clans. User can release lightning either from above or lightning bolt directly from the tool. However few can wield it due to mana consumption and overheating which makes weapon impossible to grasp.  Asura clanCurrent leader: Bahrami Lastname 2nd most powerful clan. Blessed with strong bodies and fiery characters makes them peerless fighters, they get along with Sauronmatai clan and have friendly rivalry with them(even though they were ones who erased Sauronmatai out existence.) They don't have any special ability or individual unlike other clans. Specialization - MercenariesAncestral treasure: Verethangra Spear - Red spear whose strength relies on the raw power of its user. It can return to the user when user wills it.   Lúng familyCurrent leader: N/A Eastern Dragons, they have cloud powers. Specialization - MercantryAncestral treasure: Inverted Mirror of Earth - reflects all magic attacks.  Taurus FamilyCurrent leader: Physically the strongest.

Extended Bio

This is an extended "bio" post that I put together for someone, and figured it would be useful to have here as well for anyone who hasn't seen the show! ^-^   Claudia Hodgins Claudia is the founder and President of the C.H. Postal company. His is in his mid-to-early thirties, and served the Leiden Army during what is only referred to in the show as "The War." He is a kind and considerate man, who wants the best for those around him and does everything he can to provide people with opportunities. Cattleya describes him as a person who is naturally charismatic, and works hard to earn the trust of his friends; but in the past was known for wearing his heart on his sleeve. In the manga it is implied that Claudia is easily flustered, and due to this Cattleya has been known to tease him from time to time. His parents were certain that he was going to be born a girl, hence the first name Claudia; but when he was born a boy, they still kept the name. He is only slightly embarassed by this, and asks employees to refer to him as "President" or "Mr. Hodgins." Secretly, Claudia has strong parental/fatherly instincts.   The C.H. Postal Company After the war, there was a very large portion of the population left without the ability to read or write. Claudia started the postal company after his service to help reestablish communication around the country, and to enlist the help of "Auto Memories Dolls" to help people write letters to family members and loved ones. While it certainly isn't the only postal company or employer of Dolls, his quickly becomes famous thanks to the rising skill and popularity of the newest member: Violet Evergarden.   Auto Memory Doll The show only briefly dives into the history of Auto Memory Dolls, but their job is rather unique. They don't just write out a letter verbatim from the requestor - their job is to find out the "true meaning" behind what the sender wishes to say to the recipient, and put that into words in the letter. Due to this unique skill, they're able to help many people who are unable to write well send heartfelt letters to friends or family. But that's not all; Dolls are often requested in business negotiations, relations between nobles & royal families, and even political communications between nations. Claudia has an Auto Memory Doll Certification school attached to his company, and currently employs four Dolls: Cattleya Boudelaire, Iris Cannary, Erica Brown, and now Violet Evergarden.   Violet Evergarden Violet is the main character of the show, but her origins are very much a mystery. She was assigned to Major Gilbert Bougainvillea as a child during the war, and had apparently been conditioned to act only as a weapon; she was completely emotionless, seemingly lacking any humanity. Gilbert took her under his protection, and she served with him during the war. Throughout the conflict, Gilbert taught her to read and write, and tried to help her unlearn the conditioning. Before the final battle that ended the war, Gilbert met with his best friend Lieutent Colonel Claudia Hodgnins to discuss Violet's future. Gilbert made Claudia promise that if anything were to happen to him, he would watch over Violet and take her in. During the final battle, although victory was just about ensured, Gilbert's unit was ambushed during a last ditch attempt by the enemy. He suffered fatal bleeding injuries, and Violet lost both of her arms. In his final moments, Gilbert ordered her to leave him, and to be free. His last words to her were "I love you." After being rescued and brought to a hospital to recover, Claudia kept his promise to Gilbert and took her in. Claudia tries his best to help Violet discover her humanity, and Violet decides to become an Auto Memory Doll. Her true reasoning was to discover the meaning behind Gilbert's dying words of "I love you."

Powers / Weapons

WEAPONSThe Sychar Sword: An odachi sword forged with properites of Nether and conceptual energies by Aridam himself. The weapon itself allows the wielder to slice 'anything' it comes into contact with. The weapon is also a 'key' that allows Aridam to use it to temporarily remove his curse limiter to access his True Nether Form. He can telekinetically use the sword to fight at a distance or to recall it back into his grasp if he loses it.-Prime Devotion: The sword provides the wielder a boost of power in strength, speed, and durability as well increases the potency of its already deadly attacks. The Conclusion: A one-hit kill from the Sychar Sword where the weapon induces the concept of True Death onto the opponent and it will kill them permenantly. This is rarely used and requires a lot of focus to pull off. It bypasses defenses and even durability.-------------Powers & Techniques:Nether Manipulation: The user can create, shape and manipulate Nether, the "chthonian element" and the substance that both makes up the Underworld, a subterranean dimension where all souls go when they pass on, and allow/causes things to wither, die, and be destroyed. Nether is very similar to Aether “the celestial element” in that it is from a plane that exists between the planes of both matter, and energy.Regeneration: He can regenerate himself to a metaphysical and seemingly existential level. Regeneration depends on the amount of Nether energy he has within his body. If he lacks enough, his regeneration is rendered useless. Although, Aridam doesn't rely on it too much and relies solely on his endurance and pain tolerance to gain the upperhand.Nether Empowerment / Dimension Empowerment: If the opponent fights Aridam in the Orpheus Realm, the realm will passively strengthen him the longer he stays in the realm. Even outside of the Orpheus Realm, he can summon the Pillars of Ebon. The Pillars of Ebon are spatial pillars that house Nether energy that erect themselves into reality. As long as he is near a Ebon pillar, he'll continue to grow more powerful.Chaos Embodiment: As a Netherdemon of Chaos, Aridam embodies this for his sheer presence and power can cause chaotic and destructive domino effects in reality. Any attacks associated with the concept of chaos itself is nullified completely, therefore making him immune to such attacks.Summoning of Ebon: As a supreme ruler of the Orpheus Realm, Aridam can summon an Ebon Pillar, a pillar made of Nether energy that can warp through dimensions and space. This is used as a power boostAwareness of Amal: The ability to have cosmic awareness of what is happening within the Orpheus Realm and beyond it. Even gaining information in a fight on an opponent.Apollo Speed: A technique that greatly enhances and increases the individual's speed and agility to match the opponent.Altan Respawn: Aridam has six lives and each time he dies, he'll respawn himself to life and back into existence. If all his lives are depleted, he'll surely die for good. In order to reclaim any lost lives, he'll have to go a day without battle and rest.----True Nether Form: Aridam uses his odachi to 'impale' himself to temporarily unlock his curse limiter and enter his true Netherdemon form while also merging with the properties of the sword. To access this form requires a lot of Nether energy to execute. Unfortunately for Aridam, due to the curse, he can only access 50% of his true power until he can finally uplift it completely to return to his prime.- The Beam of Anouk: Only in his Nether Form, Aridam will produce a powerful beam of raw Nether energy from his mouth to incinerate his opponent to nothingness.
