That... indeed sounds kind of like Devil Survivor but it somehow seems totally different.
I understood that you already looked up this information but let me tell the differences between our ideas and what I want the RP to contain:
Devil Survivor is about attacks from demons that infiltrated the human realm, the humans have to survive judgement day in order to keep their world and for their race to keep existing. There are seven days in total that they have to survive, the seventh being judgement day. Every day a Septentrion will try to attack the defense towers in the three main cities. Every day these Septentrion get stronger and at some point, only summoners with really powerful demons (like Byakko, Cerberus and Kikiruhime) can defeat the Septentrion.
This all started with an app available for the android mobiles called "Nicaea" which also has a "dead face delivery site". However, humans later find out that these dead face delivery clips are for real. Once they die, they get the choose if they still want to live... if they choose "yes" then they'll become summoners.
Well, Machomuu seems to agree that, if we work together, it could be great.
As for my idea? Basically, it was similar to the concept of being quarantined in an area infested with demons and having to figure out what's going on. Except, rather than demons being thrown into our world and causing havoc, the players are thrown into the demon realm, and their objective is to actually survive.
They'd be constantly harried by fiends, they'd have to constantly hide their presence, lest they be captured and torn apart by them, and they'd have to search for a way out while doing this; and they'd have three separate realms that they can move through in which to do it. There'd be the Nine Layers of Hell, each unique compared to the last, the infinite layers of the Abyss, and the Blood Rift, where the two evil factions constantly wage war against each other using their infinite armies.
One may be thinking this sounds like Youkai, but this is not so. The Fiendish realms don't have malls or schools or any kind of society resembling that of mortals. For example, Demon young are evil mortal souls transformed into maggots that have to feast and feast on pure evil until they transform into a slightly higher form of Demon, then keep feasting on evil to get larger and more powerful, et cetera. And there is no end to their realms, each bustling with Demons, their lords, and a fresh new form of horror.
So yeah. My idea is a group of people getting sent to the Fiendish Realms and having to survive.
No no no… It would be unfair in my eyes :/ I'm already GMing two RP's anyway and it could take months before everything is prepared to be submitted. I'm still curious to your idea though.
I'd love to have you as my Co-GM, don't get me wrong but Machomuu could be right ^^; what if my ideas and your ideas are the complete opposites of each other? BUT if we get to work it somehow, I feel like we could make an amazing roleplay.
I see your point. I will make another NPC controlled by me so that another RPers, including you, have someone to interact with who is actually controlled by someone else (me in this case). That is what you want right?
The problem isn't that we don't have events; we do have events. We just don't have a medium to interact with them; which is why you using GM-created NPCs to characterize them is a good idea. Elene is dealing with the poison right now, but it's happening off-screen because I'd need to commandeer students and staff alike to write about it, which ruins the point of roleplaying in the first place; it would just be me writing a short story.
The reason why their realm is ugly is information I can't give right now because students will be learning the reason later in one of Ryuu's classes ^^
It's okay for not posting as Elene for awhile. I know your reason and you still reply in the OOC thread so I don't see why I would make a problem aboutthis. Also, I understood that you are posting on Eve's half so i'm alright with it c: as for the matter of some characters having nothing to do like Solo and Elene… i'm still thinking of an idea, since there is already an event going on (the poisened food) it wouldn't make sense if more events happened on one day. It would also waste the events I could use later in the RP. I'll tell you once I think i've got a good idea for the characters that aren't doing anything now, letting them constantly fight will get boring and they would risk consequences.
I really didn't mean to make you feel ignored :< I admit that I forgot to answer your first question but I didn't knew your second question was actually a question directed to me. it won't happen anymore :(
I've asked, twice, why the Youkai chose to make their realm ugly compared to the human one, what with the dead trees you mentioned and the fact that they created it themselves.
I also asked whether I'm good on the posting front, as I wrote Eva's portion of Zero's latest post. Elene would be doing something, but she has no NPCs to interact with in regards to the poisoned food. I understand that people, for some reason, see it as the player's job to fill in the setting with them, but I've found that it helps flesh out the setting if the GM can actually provide information for the inhabitants of the world without OOC exposition.; Plus, it provides something for players to do when their character isn't stupidly attempting to attack an immensely powerful older Youkai that mutilated half of the staff.
