Game Information
Please read rules before RTJ. Unriht and Wrang are Old English words for "Wrong". Milania used the philosopher's stone to create an elixir of life that went so, so wrong...

Game Information
This is a Mature Game which follows the Mature Game rules set by RPOL. Please make sure to look over these rules before joining the game. Post "I will follow the RPOL and Game guidelines" when submitting your RTJ

Manners - I know being polite isn't popular in the social media age, but nonetheless I expect politeness when dealing with other players and with me. Here are some things I absolutely will not allow in the game.

Inappropriate OOC Chat - Please keep OOC chat in the OOC general discussion thread. In the General discussion thread, please be nice. No controversial topics, no hate or prejudice. Controversial topics include political and religious discussions unless they somehow relate to the game.

GOD Gaming - In any supernatural game, there is a tendency to have extremely over-powered characters that can mess with plotlines. If your character has an awesome power, there is a cost to using it. If you use an extensive amount of power (this will be determined by the extent of damage or result) the supernatural will become powerless for a number of game days afterword. So, if you're raining down lightning during a fight, for instance, you won't be able to even shock someone when scrubbing your feet over the carpet for at least a game day.

Puppeting - Please make sure not to puppet other characters without permission. This includes doing an action to them without a possibility for them to defend. Please private message any direct actions to make sure they agree. I include some NPCs in this rule. If the NPC has a character sheet - please do not puppet without permission.

Role-Criticizing - This is when someone is not "playing" the role the way you would like, and instead of discussing it in PM, you portray your irritation in character in a role-play thread. Such as "Buffy doesn't know why Jane is being such an idiot by just coming in with no entrance message, but she decides to ignore the imbecile"

Criticizing and Bad Mouthing in the General Discussion thread - This thread is not meant to make others feel unwelcome. If you have a problem with a player's game play or the player themselves, then please take it to private message or talk to me.  I go by the great Buddha's saying when dealing with others in this game - "Is it True? Is it Kind? If it's not kind, then is it necessary?" Or the great Jesus's words "Love your neighbor as yourself". If what you're saying isn't very loving - then don't post it in general chat.

Bringing a problem without a solution - Don't criticize at all if you don't have a solution to solve the problem. You just make the problem worse.

Number of powers - You can have up to 4 well defined single-type powers. You can say you are "Telekinetic" but you have to severely define what that means, and be willing to modify if there is an objection. There has to be well defined limits and effects to this power.

Sex in the game - This game is more about intrigue, mystery, power. There is a place for romance and allure but please make sure that any sex follows the general rule for a prime time show set in early evening (a bit of clothes shuffling, Some caressing and petting,  steamy looks, running off to the bedroom, being seen later in bed with covers up) All "sex scenes" must be faded out after the first item of clothes gets pulled off.

PLEASE don't get so involved in your romantic interlude that you ignore the rest of the game. The characters aren't meant to simply "hook up" but to actually connive and interfere with plans like the rest of us.

Posts - This is a slower moving game but it would be nice if you could post at least once a day if possible. Please don't take more than 1 week to post. I will move your character out of the way if you are delaying progress Please let us know if you will be gone and give us an ETA of when you will be able to post. Please make posts at least 50 words. There are ways to make this happen by adding gestures, surroundings, a bit of another character's dialogue.  Posts are done in past tense with a limited third person POV.  If possible, don't portray your inner emotions or thoughts unless you're talking to a telepath. Use gestures, tone, facial expressions to get your emotion across. It adds to the mystery of the game, I believe, if we can follow this.

The rules will alter as time goes on - if you use basic courtesy things should go well, such as not butting into a scenario unless you ask the others involved.

Game Information - Race descriptions
Unriht and Wrang are able to walk in the sunlight as long as they are wearing their bloodstone. Without their bloodstone they will burn up. Dhampirs don't have this weakness

Physiology of the Unriht

Because of the Philosopher's stone being part of their DNA, are physically beautiful creatures. They have few physical weaknesses, but do possess variations in size, muscle mass, and facial features, with some Unriht being more physically superior than others. Since their main diet is human blood, some tend to be thinner due to a moral resistance to eating humans as they try to eat only animal blood, which does not nourish them completely. Some can grow portly if they are especially greedy blood eaters.  They possess heightened senses of hearing, sight, and smell. Their sense of sight is hawk like, being able to see their prey, in an unobstructed view, from at least 1/4 mile away. Unriht can subsist on Animal blood, but it makes them weak and human like, and animal blood eaters can suddenly snap from the strain of denying their real nature and murder dozens of humans. Unriht are as eternal as their creator

Weaknesses - They are allergic to silver, and can be killed if their heads are removed, or they are set on fire. They can be maimed or scarred if their natural healing abilities are hampered.Can burn in the sun without their bloodstone.

Strengths - heightened hearing, seeing, smell. Can hear a pin drop at the bottom of a 30 floor skyscraper while at a loud party on the top floor. Very hard to sneak up on. Seeing has been described. Has a nose better than a bloodhounds, and can track a prey for miles, can separate smells easily, and can even gather a smell across a large lake should a human try to escape them by jumping into a river or lake. Their strength is superior to humans and Dhampirs, with some Unriht being stronger than others. Some Unriht could shake a large party filled skyscraper right to the ground. They also have a natural pheromone that makes them smell amazing and is designed to lure their prey to them. Their bite is habit forming, creating a euphoric bliss. Some Unriht have a more toxic bite that can create horrible withdrawals symptoms in humans or dhampirs, or kill them within hours of being bitten. Only magic users can cure a toxic Unriht bite. An Unriht bit can create a Wrang if they push their will into the bite, highly toxic Unriht have a greater success rate, surprisingly, of creating Chosen.  Unriht tend to not be scarred or maimed due to their superior ability to heal themselves. They can also move more quickly than human senses can register. Top speeds can reach over 500 miles an hour. Can see in the dark.

Reproduction: Unriht can reproduce and create dhampirs with humans or unriht with other unriht. Reproduction is difficult, and human mothers tend to miscarry offspring. Unriht women tend to be infertile. If an unriht finds that they can't conceive their own child, they may adopt, or create a wrang.

The Wrang -

The Wrang are only as powerful as the vampire that made them. They have the same powers as the vampire that made them, but only at half the intensity. The Wrang tend to suffer from mental issues due to the change. A wrang created by another wrang tend to be monsters or extreme mad people. Wrang that create other wrang are killed on sight as well as their creations.

Physiology - Wrang, being created by a bite and not born, will look the same age and have the same look as they had before the change. Aging ceases. Hairdos can't be changed, tattoos stay the same and can't be removed. Everything is frozen in time. They have similar strengths to Unriht, but they usually die after 2500 years, the change takes a toll on their sanity and their will. If they lose their will to live, they will turn to dust just as easily as if a human set them on fire. Few Wrang live beyond 2500 years old.

Weaknesses - greater tendency towards mental illness, including depression. More susceptible to fire than Unriht. Greater weakness to silver - even a miniscule amount can kill them within minutes. Can only live on Human blood alone, not Animal, Dhampir, or Unriht. Will become irreparably insane from a week of blood deprivation, and even three days without blood can lead to insanity. Will die if kept from Blood more than 1 week. Will die without their bloodstone on their person.

Strengths - Powers increase as they age. Have similar senses and strengths to Unriht, including speed. Usually have the same powers as their maker, but 50 percent weaker. Can see in dark.

Reproduction  - Wrang can make other Wrang, but otherwise can't reproduce. They are basically reanimated corpses that have been changed by the Philosopher's stone into thinking zombies.

Dhampir - Dhampir are basically humans with a need for blood in their diet. They may have some powers and abilities. Longer lived than humans. Can live to be 500 years old. Less susceptible to illness. Minor healing ability. Can be turned into Wrang.

humans - Humans can be magic users and extend their abilities.

Game Information - Minor details of the game
Milania was the daughter of an ancient alchemist and is around 5000 years old. She created a philosopher's stone that gave her the knowledge and immortality she sought, but changed a symbol her father had in place, which created made her a vampire.

She discovered she could marry and produce young, or make others into her likeness. Being a rather selfish woman, she appreciates her power.

She also ensured her endless life to be free from matricide by linking all progeny. If she dies, they die.

Currently she is the queen of a media empire and controls the wants of the public through her search engines, games, fashion, movies, news, and social media.

Generally not known by the public. Bane of the dhampirs who also struggle with the link. Humans think she's a myth for the most part.

Who are you in this world?
