Right, but it still follows the same concept. It's people, without much life experience, nevermind supernatural, becoming better than deities who are thousands of years old, in only a few days.
Which is why I, personally, prefer my idea; it gives the characters a sense of accomplishment, by surviving each day, but it's pretty explainable within any world that somebody could avoid detection, if they were to try hard enough. And, if they happen to gain power through it, they earned that power by using the skills they had, and it makes every power they gain so much more sweet.
Just seems like a more fulfilling experience to me, y'know?
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.
