    Default Life After Death IC

    Welcome to Shibuya....the Under Ground. You are now all part of the Reaper's Game. All Players come to the Under Ground for a common reason, and the price you pay to set foot here is the thing you value most. Now, you have 7 days. You have to survive, and you have to complete the missions issued by the Reapers. Better find yourself a strong partner, and trust them. Good luck, and don't get yourself erased...

    Ah, I'm just ****ing with you guys! April Fools! Anyway, real IC time!



    Where...are you?

    As you open your eyes, the darkness of the world around you is almost blinding. It appears as though you are drifting, as if on a boat, alone at sea, mired in endless fog. Time has no meaning for you. You don't know how long you float there. Ten minutes? Twenty? An hour? Four? Perhaps even a week? What does it matter to you? You can't move, can't speak. You just lay there...waiting. Waiting? For what? Something different, perhaps.

    And then, there is a light. After that ageless age, finally, you see a light! And from the light, there emits a booming voice, which calls to you. "I Judge you...Unready! The circumstances of your death, which hide even the fact that you are dead from you, have left you clinging to life, to answers. Though I could pass Judgment on you now and send you to the plane of your afterlife, your soul is not ready to move on. And so, you will rot in purgatory, trapped in a shroud of soul and bone, until you find the answers you seek. Now, begone!"

    And like that, the light, which only a moment ago seemed ready to engulf you, was extinguished. And your eyes feel heavy. Against your will, you close them, drifting off to a long sleep...

    You awaken in a graveyard. You were not on your back, but rather, floating in midair, resting at an angle. Your skin is...you have no skin! You are an ethereal being, a ghost! Looking up, you see others like you! But...where is your body? And yet, when you look down, you see that the angle you were resting on had your back "pressed" against a headstone. And on that headstone reads...your own name?!

    The other ghosts all awaken around the same time and come to a similar realization as you. But what could be happening now? You don't remember dying!

    Spoiler

    I'd like to get some party reactions and interactions out of the way first, so go ahead and have fun describing your reactions and questions and talk to each other, whatever you'd like to do. Plot will officially start with my next post.

    Lia looks around, and says "Maedkienspo'kulaunie" (word of nurturing, minor) softly but firmly.

    Truespeak check:
    Spoiler
    Show

    DC for check is 15 + (2 X target creature's CR), so this check would be a 25)
    (1d20)[15] + 20 = 35


    A green flash surrounds her (she gains fast healing 1 for five rounds).

    As the flash fades, she checks for her bow and arrows, then the remainder of her items.

    Edit: Th possible cause of her death spowly dawns on her. "Did they finally catch me?" she thinks "Surely I would've gotten a trial.".

    Vul looks around, seeing the others, then at himself. He's in his natural form. He's never in his natural form around strangers. He morphs his body into a new form, trying to hide himself during the process. A few seconds later, an elven male with hair to his shoulders and a thin form sits in his spot. Adjusting his nose to be slightly pointier, Vul checks for his bags and the contents of the first one.

    When he hears speech nearby, he turns to look at the source, seeing an elven maiden. "Happen to you to?" he asks in elven. No need to show his true colors yet. For now, he's just a simple elf.

    There is a tombstone that reads:

    Horatio Priestly
    *************************************
    Last Lord of Overhill
    Last Scion of a Priestly Line
    A Capital Judgement Rolled Over Him
    And Now the Worms Are Readied in the Buffet Line

    The holy symbol at the top is that of a face with a sun in it.
    Spoiler
    Show
    Knowledge [religion] DC 10
    Spoiler
    Show
    The symbol is that of Pelor, NG God of the Sun, Light, Strength, & Healing.

    The man hovering above the ground rights himself, his body lifting by pivoting at the feet. His head travels in a wide arc, but his feet actually don't displace from their position in any but orientation, so that the man is now 'standing' just off the ground.

    He is 6', and a little hefty (218 lbs), but is quite fetching in a friendly, warm way .... well, he would be normally. His eyes are dark, but from the fairer hair you'd say he had blonde hair when alive. He turns to look at the rest of you and the headstones there.
    Spoiler
    Show
    So, be sure to give your name, any religious affiliation that your family or someone would have ascribed, and whatever...

    He is dressed as a noble might be expected to dress. He has a nice amulet that bears the same symbol as his headstone, has a pair of fine khaki trousers with field-style boots, a vest, a fine white shirt with cravat, and a waistcoat. Over his back is a very luxurious evening/ opera cape. If this is what he was buried in, then even with the ominous headstone - an irreverent one meant for one executed for a capital crime (but what? and why?) - someone still took pains to make sure that he was dressed and cared for very well.

    He nods as he sees you all, and then he sinks to his knees on the ground as he tries to make sense of it all, his body heaving in vestigial motions as of one trying to catch his breath after receiving a shock. His fists try to pump against the earth, but fail. Finally, he goes from generalized grief to a desire to enact a force of will. He tries to grab at the manicured green, and his hand keeps missing. Each time, though, it seems - either from your imagination, or perhaps because the grass rustles slightly - that he is getting closer.

    Finally, it is unmistakeable, he is successful. The grass responds to his ephemeral hands as if they had at least some substance. The smile that broadens across his face suddenly stops. The grass he is touching withers, turns black, and crumbles under his touch.

    There is a shape of a mouth as of a scream, and he starts back suddenly ... well, up at an angle as he doesn't have the full sense yet of his movement. He floats down and over his grave now, being careful not to touch anything living. He is on his knees, facing his own gravestone, head bent over in his lap, and his body heaves as one sobbing.

    Lia's tombstone is fairly simple, with a symbol of Corellon Larethian at the top and "Beloved Daughter and Friend" below her name.

    She turns to the elf who spoke to her, pulling her ghostly cloak around her. "It seems so."

    Vul leaned back, partly due to boredom, partly to cover up his tombstone. No distinct god's symbol was carved into it, and the carved inscription simply read "Here lies a man who could walk in anyone's shoes". Beneath that, scribbled in charcoal, was a half mask forced into a grin with the phrase "Teacher and Father to me" in a messy script. "Any idea why?"

    "Some, you?"

    Lia mentally goes through the truenames she knows for the races of those around her, then how she would describe them in an utterance.

    A sense of wrongness flashes through her mind. They wouldn't have outright executed me for an accident, would they? Something is very wrong here.

    The big guy (ostensibly Horatio Priestly) turns around as the others speak. He 'stands' and tries to collect himself. He's listening to the two elves speak and shakes his head and gets down on the ground again. He tries to speak, but even he realizes there is no sound. If he heard his own voice, at least, it might help him, but the knowledge that no one, not even himself, can hear ... that he can't even get the purgative effects of a scream, is brutal.

    Over the next several moments, he starts to perfect the ability he used in withering grass. The others probably are curious, if not amused, for after a minute it appears that what he's doing isn't just killing grass randomly ... but actually using the life-leeched and blackened remains to spell out ....

    Can't speak. Only listen. Don't know Elven. Sorry.

    Oriana

    Rising slowly Oriana did not think much of what she could not see or understand. She was more or less used to things happening around her beyond her control and understanding. This was just the newest in a series.

    Admittedly, that voice had been weird...and it used a lot of long words.

    I never done called you no beegone!

    She had shouted back at him...it? Now she floated.. She looked at the slab of stone ignoring the indecipherable, to her, scribbles. She pulls her cloak around her and as she looks around and scampers behind the stone as soon as others come into view. She tries to get close unseen.

    The strange scenery unnerves her as well as her apparent lack of...body. But nothing scares her more than people. When she wasn't being ignored or scorned, they only hurt her with their words and as often as not with her hands. So she decides to hide until she can start getting the hang of the place and what she can do to get back.

    "Grave robber! How dare they," a sharp shout comes from a nearby grave. "I cannot believe this, finally undead, and I have nothing to show of it, can't even remember why, or how." As you look over you see that the voice echoes from a disembodied head floating over a nondescript body. The ghostly tansparent shirt is smattered with blood around the collar. "Guess I should have invested some faith in a god. Course, I could stay undead for an eon before trying to get somewhere, plenty of time to pray," He continues, seemingly unaware of the others. "Hey, what's going on," he shouts as he looks over at the elves.

    Flyleaf turns an eye from where she lay, casting it across the sky above. The boat and the waters; they felt so unsure, and the booming voice...seemed jovial for the situation. Whatever it was; it did not matter to the elf in celestial skin. Her hair in life had been glowing silver, as well as her eyes, thogh her skin dusky and tan from a heated tropical sun.

    She has only a small idea of where she is, but focuses on a single collection of stars for a few moments. The same appear in a crystal necklace floating above her form, swirling around with wispy energies before disappearing as quickly as they had came. At least she was safe from the worst of what could come. She gets to her feet, muscles once lean in life now just empty ghostly impressions in the air. And she wonders, but doesn't panic; that would be a very silly thing indeed.

    Her incorporeal form shifts back to a collection of finely-stitched furs and tokens to cover her and wrap around the flowing hair that was scattered across her. She kneels before the tombstone she was risen from, staring intensely at it, a smile coming to her lips.

    As you all recover your bearings, there is a bright flash of light, and before you appears a mysterious hooded figure. The creature looks towards you all, one at a time, at your disembodied, transparent selves. The creature slowly lifts its hood, revealing a mechanical appearance. It spreads its glowing wings and sweeps its hand in front of it, its finger pointing to each of you in turn.

    Spoiler
    Show


    "Welcome to Purgatory. You are all deceased." The creature's voice is emotionless and forced, with a robotic, businesslike tone. Each word out of its mouth seems to have been written by itself and spoken, like the creature is simply dictating a pre-written message, rather than conveying its actual thoughts.

    "You are all here because you could not accept your own deaths. The lack of information about your cause of death, or the reason, is the most likely explanation for this childish defiance." Again, despite its harsh and somewhat condescending words, the creature itself does not change its inflection or tone, nor does it appear to be looking down on you. Its expression is blank, and there is no sign of arrogance or contempt in its eyes.

    "In order to ensure that you will be able to move on to the afterlife, I have been sent here to help you come to terms with your own deaths. Before you ask, I do not have access to any information relating to the circumstances of your deaths. Now then, are there any questions?"

    From her hiding place Oriana watched the scene unfold. Those gathered did not seem threatening and didn't seem to act much like she expected. She shrinks in her hiding place as the shiny metal man points to her but curiosity gets the best of her so she peeks again after a moment. No one seemed interested in her for now so it was fine, she thought.

    Timidly she rises from her hiding place in hopes of understanding something more, ready to bolt at the first sign of trouble.

    The creature nodded its head slowly. "I can answer your questions easily enough. This is the Torinian Cemetery, where you were all buried. As I stated before, I do not know the details, however, your judgment did come to my attention some hours ago, so I was able to get here in time to see your funerals. They were presided over by a stout, middle-aged human wearing red robes emblazoned with the palace's seal."

    The creature raises its hand to the left, and as your eyes follow it, you notice a pathway out of the cemetery that leads to the main road. Along the sides of it, you can see houses and merchant carts and other structures, but at the very end of it, about half a mile away, is a tall, grandiose building with a pair of roaring lion statues outside of it. The Torinian Palace.

    "The answers you seek may lie in that palace. For now, I shall simply say this. Though you are deceased, you may briefly step onto the world of the living. Your mere presence would be sure to cause an uproar. However...for a scant few of you with the power, you may be able to possess a host, and with that, speak to the king and hear what he has to say on the subject. I will return to this spot at midnight tonight. I wish you well in your endeavor. Farewell."

    The angel snaps its fingers and a portal opens behind it. The angel steps back and falls through it, and the portal seals itself. The noonday sun is starting to beat down on your graves, but the light it provides will make traveling much simpler.

    Aften listening to the creature, Lia was confident that her death was not a punishment for The Accident. They definately wouldn't have buried her in this strange cemetary if that had been the case.

    12 hours, she thinks to herself, not much time.

    She stands up, a gently floating toward the cemetary exit.
    Anyone else coming?

    "Might as well. No sense hanging around here," Vul says, standing up and starting to float down the path. He stops, however, and turns to face the other figures. "I figure we'll be working together on this, so might as well be on good terms."

    Horatio will follow along, but will attempt to do so stealthily.

    Approaching vul oriana asks him

    What be it now we in together? The shiny metal guy said something and then something but I didna understand nothin' cuz he talked with lotsa big an fancy words and y'all don't answer. Who be dead and wha' d'that guy want?

    Around the middle her voice starts waning and she starts looking down at her feet, ashamed that everyone seemed to understand what he was talking about.

    Near the end, however, her voice became once more demanding remembering that she mustn't show weakness. She survived all this time without their help and she still would.

    Flyleaf sets off to find a suitable person she will be able to possess to get into the royal palace; of noble stature and with a serene grace. It would be a form familiar to her, and easier to control.
    Ignore those idiots. They’re trying to confuse you with knowledge and facts. Here is what you need to know…

    "The six of us here are dead. You, me, all of us. And that machine-angel-thing said that our funerals were performed by the same guy. Since there's one man currently being sought by six, it makes sense we go together." Vul replies to Oriana.

    As Flyleaf floats along the path, she spots a smiling, pretty young girl standing at a market stall. The woman is human, and appears to be around 19 years of age, with shoulder-length brown hair and sparkling green eyes. She wears a simple outfit consisting of a red top and brown pants, complete with sandals.

    She is speaking to the market's fish salesman, a strong middle-aged man whose skin is dark tanned from years of fishing in the harsh sun. The man is bald, with a dark brown mustache and a white t-shirt, stained with sweat around his armpits and chest, that clings to his broad torso and looks ready to rip at any moment.

    Across the street, there is an elder woman attempting to sell perfume and herbs to passers-by, but no one seems to be stopping at her booth. Between the booths, there are several people coming and going, none of whom catch Flyleaf's eye.

    Flyleaf continues down the path towards the palace. It takes her approximately 10 minutes to reach the gate. There are a pair of guards standing at the gate, one on either side. The male is a dwarf with red hair and a reddish brown beard. He has an axe strapped to his back. The female is a stout, blonde half-orc, resting her arm on a huge tower shield and putting her full weight against it.

    Through the gate, there is a garden, where many nobles are sitting and chatting animatedly. People of both genders and all ages and race, though the group of nobles that Flyleaf can see is primarily comprised of gnome males.

    One target in particular catches her eye, a voluptuous, red-headed elven woman wearing a purple dress and dancing with an attractive human male as the band plays. She gives him a kiss on the cheek and a wink as their number finishes, then excuses herself to go to the powder room.
