Okay, heres another of my crazy conctions I ve been toying around with, so here it comes.

Way back when, there was always an end of the world story, each culture had one, so what if it were to happen? I was thinking although man may have given up some of the higher dieties, they still would watch over you. Now this universe is being threatened by a deadly army from past this world, beyond the universe, a nega vese kinda thing, so all of the ancient guardians gather together and enlist their champions to try and find a way to stop the coming horde. We could have a representative for each of the ancient cultures! Ive already been developing a character to represent the Aztecs, which I will be playing as if the idea generates some interest. So how about it guys? ya interested?

I'm interested, I would absolutley LOVE to be a champion of either Greece or Egypt. Hopefully Greece (R0/\/\4Ns SUxxorz!!!!1!!11!one).

I'd like to have more details about this please, thank you.

Norse gods will own you ogi! Not that it matters, from what I understand we'll be on the same side. Sounds like a wicked idea, I, as the representative avatar of the Norse Gods, would like to partake. :)

glad to have ya aboard! Ogi what is the info you require?

Demitrex
05/10/2005 12:22 PM

HAHA I got him to call you Ogi!! now no one will ever have to try and pronounce your name again!! Herr kartaffel-kopf!! muwahaha...

Anyway, we are supposed to be the champion/avatar/hero for the entire pantheon/civilization that we represent correct? So it would be best if we accounted for many different aspects of the culture, as well as different deities, not just one. I.E: If someone were to pick roman, they should encompass all the deities, not just mars, or jupiter etc.

Also, how powerful do ya want our characters? Heavily powerful (they are champions of an entire pantheon) but just make sure not to be able to destroy worlds or millions of people etc? Like zeus's little child champion can throw some lightning maybe, but it's not gonna be powerful enough to destroy everyting. Is that kinda what your lookin for? Incredible but not invincible?

Yeah Orion give us details! I'm kind of confused.

Orion
05/11/2005 5:02 AM

Yeah, kinda typed this one in a hurry, hmmm lets see if this will crarify it for ya.

Demitrex pretty much hit the nail on the head in terms of character power. Incredible but not invincible, couldnt of said it better myself. Also instead of a dark army(didnt really enjoy ths idea too much) Maybe a couple of malevolent beings from other dimensions. There is an edge to our universe, and beyond that there is this being known as "The Gatekeeper", our heroes would be jumping from dimension to dimension, trying to destroy these uber powerful beings. Now about these being themselves.

They are older than time itself, when existence was still virgin, they were ancient. They despise other beings and see them as beig incredibly inferior. They are very stuck up and opinionated(like the stereotypical rich people in most movies) and believe if people cant be like them, then why bother existing?

I think for an opener I would have these entities attacking our Universe, onlly to be repelled back by guardian the dieties of Earth. The dieties are severly drained in combat, and realize that this threat cannot spread, so they send thier greatest warriors (Does not have to be historicaly accurate on names and stuff) to stop this threat, if ya need anything alse, mail me or post it here.

Name: Eiliv Niets Arkin

Pantheon: Norse

Age: 2,168 (Spirit who has been living in The hall of the slain, Valhalla)

Gender: Male

Weapon: Mjollnir, the great hammer of Thor (lightning imbued, and returns to hand when thrown. Ranged and melee all in one, oh yeah! )

Powers and Magic: ~The ability to assume several animal forms (taught to him by Loki).
~Has learned magic to enhance physical attributes to aid in battle over the millenia.
~Innate judgement - after a couple millenia of combat, can innately judge physical characteristics and capabilities of humanoids.Also other creatures but not nearly as well
~Supernatural berserk- lets just say it's not pretty to really strike a nerve! :P

Steed/Riding Animal: Sleipnir, the eight legged mount of Odin, and son of Loki. Gallops across land, water, and air. (will not overuse the air part, so I won't go flying around all over, lets say his powers are diminished in that respect when we leave earth.)

Appearance: Large man, standing at 6'8", muscles all over his body built and toned over many many years of near constant combat. Short blond hair covers his head, always rather spikey, his hair about 1 1/2" long. He has a thick goatee, not long, but very thick and it is a different shade of color than the hair on his head, being more of a dirty blond. Calculating royal blue eyes, small gray cracks in the iris. Fair skin, his well built and toned muscles easy to see.

Studded leather armor protects his torso, with bracers and shin guards for his arms and legs. He wears a bear skin instead of a cloak or jacket, only the pelt and his dark red and black clothing covering him where the leather does not.

Accoutraments/ Magical Trinketts:~ An amulet that allows the Gods of his culture to tell his physical and mental condition.
~Iron gauntlet on his right hand, gives him unnatural aim and distance while throwing Mjollnir, worn also in respect for Thor's style with the hammer.
~Ring that can store limited number of spells and incantations for instant use in a tight situation. (to recharge, must spend three times the normal casting time for all spells imbued)
~ A waterskin that never runs out of the most beautiful, sparkling, tasty water ever! :P
~A cornucopia that never runs out of awesomely delicious, Valhalla worthy, food.
~A horned viking helmet that will transport him back to Valhalla should he be killed. He will never be able to leave again if this happens.

History: Born into the world as Bo Brand, meaning commanding sword blade, he grew up in a simple family part of a clan of mountain dwellers. He spent a majority of his youth herding goats and sheep, spending his free time practicing with his grandfather's warhammer. Bo grew up and left his home, his three brothers being more than enough help, and joined a group of vikings from his region. Most of his late teen years and early twenties were spent pillaging and sacking, his skill with the warhammer aiding him in becoming a better than average fighter. He was not by any means, however, heroic in any sense. But upon his death at the age of 27, killed by a rival clan's chief in a duel, Bo was accepted with open arms into the halls of Valhalla.

Bo had lived up to expectations of everyone in Valhalla, although people were suprised by his choice of weapon in life, when he did not choose the weapon for which he was named. This fact was inconsequential, and he began his combat in Valhalla, never lasting more than halfway through the battles. But it was a good life, combat until death, then feasting until combat once again.

As the years went by, then the decades, and finally a century, Bo had become increasingly efficient in his combat, learning and adapting to the styles of all his opponents. By the end of his second centure, Bo could last almost to the end of the battles, and in less than half a century, had claimed the victory over all others in the combat of Valhalla. But his prowess didn't stop there, he continued to improve and quickly became a nearly unstoppable force, never finding one on one fights anymore and always coming across groups of enemies.

His accomplishments did not go unnoticed by the Aesir and soon Thor entered the combat of Valhalla under the guise of a simple man. At the end of one of the countless battles, it was only Thor and an unsuspecting Bo. A great battle followed the initial face off, rocking the ground and walls of all Valhalla. In the end Thor unleashed all of his power and finished Bo. Astounded by Bo's power, and the odd choice of his weapon compared to his name, Odin renamed the man Eiliv Niets Arkin, meaning Immortal Champion, The eternal King's son.

Many more centuries went by before the war with the beings beyond the world. It was decided that Eiliv was to be sent to destroy the enemies. Bearing the gifts of his gods, Eiliv was on his way, prepared for the battle with new enemies.


Sound good?

Name: Zeus Donum

Pantheon: Greek

Gender: M

Weapon: A longsword that can be immolated at will. Can cut through any non-magical object, and some magical ones.

Power and Magic: While wielding his sword, he can merge it with his arm. He can summon lightning bolts into his hand 5 times/day. He has unhuman strength.

Steed/Riding Animal: A pegasus (can tire)

Appearance: A 5'6" old man with white hair and milky eyes. He appears very weak and looks like he is ready to die. He leans on his cane, coughing and sputtering. In battle, his glazed eyes turn a bright red. His face becomes a snarling visage, not unlike that of a beast.

Accoutermants/Magical Trinketts: His robes can hold and hide any of his items he carries with him.

History: Donum was born in a temple of Aphrodite in the city of Athens. He grew up like any other child. He was particularly interested in the study of the pantheon. When he turned twenty-one, he had a dream, a prophecy. He saw the threat that would come, but not for hundreds of years. He saw that the greecian pantheon, as well as the barbarians' gods preparing for this attack. He also saw himself, champion of the greek pantheon. He never saw anything to do with his prophecy until he turned 76. Lying on his deathbed, he remembered his prophecy. He never died, but got up and left his house and went over to the temple of Zeus. He prayed for answers to the prophecy, when he had a strange urge. He got up and stopped praying and moved around to the back of the statue of Zeus. There he saw a sword, some robes, and a nnote on top. The note told him about the prophecy and his involvement. When he left the temple, his pegasus came down from the heavens to serve as his steed. That is also when he received his strength and lightning summoning ability.

I don't think it matters really how your character became the chosen for your particular pantheon, thats more or less just some history to add flavor to your character. I mean if I said I was the Norse Avatar for no better reason than they picked at random, my character would still be the same, I'd just have to RP it a little different. Even if your not going with the decendant bit, it would work as long as you told a story of your character gettin picked by your pantheon.
