PostSubject: A gate stands before you   26.08.10 21:11

Very simple... you are living your lives as normal people in your everyday life... one day when you are walking from to home from or to; your job, school, the store, anywhere else. You suddenly see a large gate-like door in front of you... the gate is simply standing there... there is no wall behind it at all... and you know for a fact that it has never been there before. As you look at the gate you hear a voice inside your head, far different from your own thoughts and it seems to be coming from in from the gate, "You have been given a choice, if you enter you will never be able to return... but you shall find great power... you will never get this opportunity again."

This is where your story will begin... all of you see this gate before you, and you do not need to know each-other even, in fact your characters can live on opposite sides of the world if you want. your character could be of any age that you want... you could even have your character be elderly and in a hospital if you wish and the gate would appear before him inside his room...
You may do as you wish in this RP within the rules of this world... and it will follow the basic RP rules here.

What is beyond the gate I will keep to myself till the RP begins... and I hope that you will enjoy this XP.

Character sheet: (all info will be very important and potentially vital to what is decided happens to you... though it may not seem it... more detail is appreciated in this case Razz)

Name:
Age:
Appearance/physical condition: (in addition to looks, how are you physically?... are you fit? are you weak?, svelte?, sick?, terminally ill?, body builder?)
History:
Personality:
desires: (power?, peace?, war?, blood?, love?, women?, to find the perfect grapefruit? whatever any and all of them Razz)
regrets: (anything)
skills?: (anything that could be a skill... maybe your great at sudoku, maybe you are a mechanic, maybe you are some kid who likes to shoot stuff with a sling shot, maybe you can golf, maybe you can dislocate your arm, maybe you practice some form of martial arts.)
weaknesses?: (allergies?, short temper? dumb?, cocky?, trick knee?... whatever it/they is/are.)
other: (absolutely anything else that perhaps should be known about your char... it is best not to keep hidden back stories... although that would be okay XP... just PM them to me if you don't want others to know something about your char as EVERYTHING here may have an effect on what happens to you or what your char develops ect.)
stuff on you: (anything that you have with you when this gate appeared... just whatever you have on your person...)


edit: this does take place in the modern world that is where we currently live in when the game begins... so your chars will act accordingly having lived in this world their whole lives so far.

edit: added 2 things to the char sheet

"susurrus [soo-sur-uhs]"
- (noun) As one of the most beautiful words in the English language, susurrus is defined as a soft, murmuring sound. It resembles the rustling symphony of the leaves moving across the pavement or the whisper created by the branches of the trees on a windy, autumnday. Uttering susurrus out loud also simulates the acoustics of nature’s effect; this is one of those rare words where its aesthetic, sound and feel coincide beautifully.

Name: Sheik Al Qasr (English Name is John Halsamit, Real name is Ibn al Halsamit)
Age: 87
Appearance/physical condition: A man who's lost one of his legs to an artillery strike. Although he can still limp and move like a regular man due to a variant of opium which siphons the aging gene. Still, his artificial leg pains him quite a bit. He was starting to get used to it after his 20th anniversary of his leg being lost, until being shot a few times and lacking proper surgery to remove the bullets. His hair is gray and he doesn't look too good, recently developing a flu. Go figure.
History: An Iraqi Shiite, Qasr, despite his ethnicity, gained the respect of Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein as a prominent Military Commander. After showing his loyalty by willingly shooting his friends on Hussein's command, he managed to rise up the ranks of the army due to politicized appointments and promotions. Even though he had rarely seen combat, and when he did it was against poorly armed Kurdish rebels, Qasr was heralded by propaganda as a great war hero, not trusting chemical weapons like Saddam's other generals but rather resorting to white phosphors and other flame based weapons like napalm to solve his problems.

On the outbreak of the Iran Iraq war, Qasr was tasked first with the invasion of the Southern part of Kuzekhstan, Iran. He was meant to push down south and capture the coast so Saddam could turn over the islands on the Iranian coast to the United Arab Emirates, one of the war's main early financers. However, Qasr, being overcautious, made his offensive stall, while other commanders had insufficient numbers of troops and the offensive failed to push past Kuzekhstan. Soon, however, Qasr proved to be a great defensive strategist, stalling Iranian attacks and forcing heavy losses. After insufficient border defenses and a change by Iran to human wave tactics forced a slow loss of land, Qasr was redirected and temporarily placed in charge of the Southern Basra defense, where he performed surprisingly well, planting mines in strategic locations and withering down the Iranians to the point where they were forced to abandon their siege and leave Iraqi territory.

However, while defending, an Iranian artillery shell, deemed a 'dud' entered his bunker after the Iranian commander ordered his bunker to be extensively shelled. However, as it was being removed, it detonated, a shrapnel piece ripping off Qasr's leg. Ever since he has been a grumpy man of sorts. During the 1991 Gulf War, Saddam put Qasr in charge of the Defense of Kuwait, expecting Qasr, who's personal relationship with Saddam was in need of strengthening to use Chemical Weapons to hold off the Americans. However due to their luck-based effectiveness, Qasr refused to use them. Norman Schwarzkopf's flanking attack caught Qasr's republican guard completely by surprise, and despite their holding of seemingly outnumbered Syrians and Arab allies on the Kuwaiti defense front, they were unprepared for the main American assault on their rears.

After the war, Qasr was put in charge of the Republican Guard, now becoming almost recluse-like due to his inability to run without limping, shot lodged in his chest, feud against Schwarzkopf, and most importantly Saddam's attempt at genocide of his Shiite ethnicity. Typically, in his best mood, Qasr would be happy to conduct the operations but now there was no way he could tolerate Saddam, his family, and his information minister.

When the blitz up the Tigris and Euphrates came, Qasr's republican guard, having no air defenses, couldn't perform. Despite being the 'Jack of Clubs' on the American wanted people deck (A deck issued to GIs so they could recognize wanted Bhaat party officials), he was looking for a deal with the Americans, lurking around Baghdad and hoping they would contact him looking for a commander for the reformed Iraqi Army. After the dissolution of the Army and Bhaat party, however, he became angry as hell on a daily basis and used his remaining command to form a Bha'atist insurgency. Since he has been known for brutality towards captured Americans and his frequent burnings of villages. (More revealed later)
Personality: Angry recluse, hates the world, hates the world, hates everything, hates the world.
desires: Youth, Temper Control, Power, youth and great physique, and for death to America.
regrets: Regrets not burning Baghdad when he had the chance (sees the Iraqi people as traitors), and not killing enough foreigners.
skills?: Good marksman, and regurgetator.
weaknesses?: One legged, short fuse
other: Oh yeah, the technology exists for prominent people to get better artificial legs which allow normal movement, but he's an insurgent, another reason he's angry.
stuff on you: 2 well armed insurgents with body armor and all (They die in a firefight in the beginning of the story, and Qasr encounters the portal while limping away), AK-74u, grenades, useless phone, some cash, and most importantly, TURBAN

Ideology: FUCK THE WORLD

this game will begin on Saturday evening or whenever I am up XP... just fyi... so if you still want to join I suggest you do it soon, if you wish to join in late... it is doable I suppose... but it would be more difficult... and your char would not benefit nearly as much as if you had made them like earlier.

also I added 1 skill to my char.

New char added that may appear later

Name: Salomon *last name unknown*

Age: 48

Appearance/physical condition: (this is after he has passed through as before no longer matters) he appears to be 18, his body is svelte, he has black hair, and red eyes. he is 5 foot 11 but always slouches over. He has longish hair that covers his eyes.

History: he was a young and optimistic lad when he was a child, at age 20 he met the girl of his dreams and married her. He made a living as a successful poet, and had a very happy life.
At age 38 his wife became ill and died. since then he spiraled into a deep depression and his poetry became very dark and bleak... his career took a turn for the better at this point. He became rich, and even lives in a mansion, though it is just for show. the thing is mostly empty. He spent his days writing his poetry from his sorrows and drinking himself stupid.
He had just written a suicide note when the Gate appeared before him... it offered him hope, a new world, a new beginning... He asked it if this new world would have a way for him to get his wife back, but The Gate did not respond. He entered The Gate anyway.

Personality: clinically depressed, and emotionally confused, unstable.

desires: his dead wife back... nothing more.

regrets: his wife's death.

skills?: He is a poet, he has no other abilities of use.

weaknesses?: emotionally confused. He isn't sure what he wants, or what is right or what is wrong anymore.

other: He is very depressed, but very intelligent.

stuff on you: He brought with himself, his pens, and a new more recent book of poetry. He is wearing a black shirt with a black over-shirt, and black pants, with a black belt, and black shoes and socks.
and the handgun, that he was going to use to kill himself only moments before he entered The Gate.

Motivating thought: is there a way to get her back in this world?
