Ive wanted to do a dedicated paranormal roleplay based off the movie, and have it be centered around a bunch of new characters who get involved with the balance. Obviously we would need a really good antagonist, and It would focus on the ever continuing spiritual warefare that was portrayed in the movie.

If anyone has any ideas for this or simply wants to make a character please feel free to run any concepts you come up with by me.

Oh me please- I want to play!

Definitely film based rather than book?
(the books are awesome by the way but I want to know my frame of reference)

'comic' books, lol- Alan Moore, doyen of the comic world. They're called Hellblazer rather than Constantine.

They're ace.

I'm sure there must be somewhere online you can have a look at them.. I know one of the editions of the dvd release came with a free mini one.

Sounds like a solid idea. The movie was one of my favorites. Hopefully this won't turn out like one of the mediocre, dollar-a-dozen, Demonic Vs Angelic type RP. But with Nanuk playing and Iorlas GMing it should be good.

Oh Rath, you say the sweetest things.. ;)u

Demonic/Angelic involvement is pretty important to Constantine, but there's a lot of interesting occult stuff too, bringing in lots of different cultures (in the comics he sees dead people, some of them anyway), and in the graphic novels there's a huge amount of interaction with 'normal' people- they're the crux, really.

Well much like Gabriel was a main antagonist in the movie there will also be antagonists from both sides heaven, and hell, but each player character WILL be a gifted human so there is no.."Im going to play a half angel" crap going on. I want creativity, and i want different from the normal stereotype characters. My character is going to be alot different from John Constantine. Ill put his bio up when im finished tweaking it.

The archangel Michael would fit in quite well, I reckon, if you want 'established characters, lol. Commander of God's army, old standing emnity between him and Samael.

Seems interesting... Post a character out line and I'll come up with a character in the mean time.

So, there were quite a few people interested so are we letting it die before it's even started or what? ;)

Do you want to go ahead with it, Iorlas?

Well i have decided to bring this thread back to life. nanuk you still interested in this? If so great, and we would start right away lol. Ive had alot of ideas for this particular roleplay, and none of it has anything to do with John Constantine. It is however conviently placed in that world. Im gonna call it Purgatory.

Race restrictions will apply. Im not going to have half angel devil may cry character rips running around with swords on their back like they came straight out of the freakin video game. Everyone will be playing spiritually sensitive humans. Is that alright with you nanuk?

nanuk

Yup.

I think that's what we'd been talking about originally anyway, wasn't it? Though I'd certainly get my jollies being an archangel... lol.

I think it'll be more interesting- and prevent powergaming. There's always more challenge and peril when you can't decimate your enemies with a blink ;)
