    Hiver Wars

    Discussion in 'Archive' started by Raven, Sep 17, 2007.

    This Game was written and created by Crazy Ivan



    Here we go. I decided to cut out the middleman (The middlemod? =P ) and put this up.
    ---------------------------------

    Welcome to Earth 2090, where government has nigh but been replaced by the ubermonopolitical company, the Hegemony's International Virtual Emulating Reality system (HIVER). This organization controls most of the industries in the future world- using fake molecules to teleport people across the world, or using virtual reality to insert people in to life simulators, whether for pleasure, military training, or something else. It controls trade, travel, entertainment, communication- everything. And the whole system (And debatably the world) is run by three supercomputers known as the MAGI. It’s a very important job- maybe too important...

    This is an age of science, after all. For a long time, humans have thought that holy mysical powers and vampires and demons and that sort of thing are all just make-believe. However...these things are actually real, and the Church has secretly been defending humanity from vampiric / infernal threats for centuries.

    The MAGI, all-knowing, are aware of the whole situation, and for a long time, resolve to leave the issue alone and not make it public. But then the unthinkable happens: The three MAGI take up different opinions. One MAGI states that HIVER should work to help the Celestial Army (The angels) in order to impose law and order on the world so that HIVER can rule. Another MAGI, calculating that unless a major change happens, humanity will drive itself to extinction, believes that they should support the Infernal Army (The demons) in order to create chaos and change and possibly avert the current course of destiny. And the third MAGI just thinks they shouldn't be involved.
    This creates a self-negating loop amongst all HIVER computers worldwide. HIVER's virtual reality system breaks down, and begins to actually distort and effect the reality of the physical world. Both angelic and demonic sides know that if the other side somehow figures out how to manipulate the weakened reality and profit from the new situation, they potentially gain massive power, and so both sides set out to stop the other side while also trying to figure out how to gain some degree of control over the ability to warp reality.

    You, as a player, have almost limitless opportunities and character in plot. You can be a good angel, a bad demon, a bad angel, a good demon, a mortal, a hacker, a technician, an innocent civilian, a god, an Antichrist. You can throw yourself into epic battles between heaven and hell, or fierce guerilla struggles between mortals and deities. (Think AvP or Transformers plot: Whoever wins, we lose.) In the distorted virtual worlds, you can travel a physical manifestation of the datastream, or create (Or get sucked into) a make-believe world, of farflung future or mythical past. The objectives are infinite, the scenarios limitless, the character connections myriad and mystical.

    Plus, sci-fi + magical apocalypse is just REALLY COOL.

    So let's get started.

    -----------------------------------------

    RPG SHEETS

    Name:
    Name.
    Age: Age. If you're an angel or demon, obviously, this isn't required. (That darn immortal snag, eh?)
    Race and Alignment: As said before: Good angel, bad demon, bad angel, good demon? Mortal who works for the highest bidder? Mix-and-match your priorities and paternity, and see what the results are. (NOTE: If you're a mortal, aligment is less stressed. In fact, it's totally optional. But if you're a deity, you need to put this up.)
    Skills and weapons: Your basic skills and weapons, magical or mundane. Below is a basic list of ideas. Keep in mind this is not a set list, and you have plenty of wiggle room. Just don't god mode. Even if you are a god. Just don't. That whole "god/antichrist" thing up there was exaggeration.

    SKILLS IDEA LIST:
    Angel: Intangibility, flying, invisibility, magical swords and armor, controlling wind and water.
    Demon: Overshadowing, superstrength and superspeed, controlling earth and fire, all sorts of armory weapons. (Angels tend to do medieval weapons, demons tend to do guns and stuff.)
    Mortal: Hacking, computer skills, self-defense and fighting. (Priesthood or religious experience may come in handy for fighting deities.) Any reasonable weapons, and since it's the future, handy-dandy gadgets.

    Appearance: How you look.
    Bio: A brief history of your life. Where you are now and what your objectives currently are. This should also include your personality.

    --------

    EXAMPLE:

    Name: Jacquelyne Ramsteadt.
    Age: 28.
    Race and Alignment: Mortal. Will line up with whoever she needs to to save the world.

    Skills and Weapons: She is the current president of HIVER, making her the most experienced woman on the planet when it comes to computer use, care, hacking, everything. (She's not sure about best person altogether, because there are so many more men than women HIVER workers.) And even that might not be enough to face the risk that threatens the world.
    Has lots of influence in governments all over the world, not that she necessarily likes it. Due to her high position and high assassination risk, she is extremely skilled at self defense and always carries with her a dagger, two laser pistols, and various gadgets concealed on her personage.
    Oh, yeah, and she can turn into a wolfwoman at will (And occasionally not at will). Meh.

    Appearance: Dark tan skin, with long black hair braided in a tail that reaches her waist. Dressed in a black jumpsuit. Fine, graceful features. Tall and powerful-looking. Stern expression on face. At night, might seem to be a little bit...dark and fuzzy.

    Bio: Jacquelyne Ramsteadt was born in the middle of the Cherokee plains, into a roaming band of Neondians (Think Indians for the 21st century. Kind of like cyber hippies, if you get it). She was brought up under a simple life, one of tradition, magic, and charms (Hence the werewolf thing, which will be elaborated upon as the game goes on). But the Neondians quickly realized her amazing mental aptitude, and after many years of saving, the entire tribe cashed in to proudly send their prodigy off to MIT and the real world.
    Her skill, up until then mostly untapped, grew explosively when she entered the world of computers and technology. All sorts of companies were interested in recruiting her, but HIVER got her first, training her to be the next president of the company. The various heads of HIVER wanted to make her into a puppet for their own whims, but Jacquelyne, on top of book smarts, had common sense, and made sure to bone up on her law and contractual skills. She had always hated the HIVER company and the way it seemed to be veering towards world domination, so much to the horror of the other fat cats of the company, the moment she got put into the presidential seat, she started changing it from the inside, trying to make a better, more progress-oriented establishment.
    Now that this strange pre-apocalyptic war has swept Earth and all but destroyed Hiver, Jacquelyne has assembled a crack team of expert hackers and technicians (That's an opening, for everyone who wants to play a mortal!) and is ready to set about fixing the HIVER system, while trying to avoid being killed by the infernal war going on around her.

    Personality: When she's not a fierce beast, Jacquelyne is a pragmatic, sensible woman, but when you get down to it, all she is is a woman. She's not ready for saving the world, and though she does her best to seem calm and ready for battle, she has her weak moments...

    -----

    Please tell me what you think, once your brain recovers from Wall-of-text shock. Maximum limit of characters is three. (I'll be posting another character or two pretty soon.)
    And then, if this meets your satisfaction, get cracking!

    Proud Canadian. Currently teaching in Nanjing, Chi
    Name:Anak
    Age: Eternal
    Race and Alignment: Demon of the Nephilim, Angels thrown down for fornicating with humans, after the original Demons were defeated. Extremely Selfish.
    Skills and weapons: Healing (with concentration can heal himself and others), Super strength, Limited empathic control of mortals (they must be able to hear and see him naturally, and he can only enhance emotions they most strongly feel at that moment), Shield of Goliath (indestructible shield), Sword of the Earth (sharp enough to cut a virus or an immortal in two).
    Appearance: He looks like a flawless, 9 foot tall giant. His face is flat and blunt featured, he is muscular without looking deformed, when he moves like a predator, stalking his prey. No one would ever call him beautiful, but no blemishes cover his skin, no scars deface his aura of perfection. When people look at him they can only imagine a bloody Great Cat allowing itself to be caged behind civilized mores only as long as it suits its purpose. He dresses in modern body armour, holding the bronze Shield of Goliath, and the Black iron Sword of the Earth.
    Bio: After an eternity in Hell tormented by the demons he refused to support in the first war, Anak is reveling in his freedom.
    When he last walked the Earth, he and the other 200 Nephilim had cults dedicated to them, as they taught humans civilization. Now he can see what he and his brothers wrought in all its glory.
    Unfortunately, when the forces of Hell came to Earth, the Nephilim where scattered. Now hated by both Angels and Demons, Anak is working to find his brothers and take control of the World. The Angels cursed them, the Demons tortured them, and the mortals forget them. Its payback time.

    Lance

    Damn old

    R&A: Fallen Angel, regrets rebelling.

    Skillz: Ghosting it up, and slight mind reading, if that's allowed. I'm gonna go for more of a wheeler and a dealer if I can. Like I usually do.

    Weapons: None. I'm ah lover, not a fighter. I carry a gun just to get the bad boy thing.

    Appearance: Tall, black hair, slight beard, piercing green eyes, glasses. Tends to wear suits, mostly black with grey ties. Ruggedly handsome, you might say.

    Bio: Made the mistake of rebelling, regrets it ever since. He wasn't cast into hell or anything, but he's been wondering the earth for a few thousand years now, getting laid and drunk.

    Personalty: Bit of a Playboy, but he has some moral back bone. Notably, he doesn't stand for needless killing or rape.

    Yeah, it's slim, but when the game gets going you'll learn more.

    Uhh... Where am I, exactly? My head hurts and I have no memory of the night before...
    Chances are good that I was at a party last night, right? I mean, isn't that the typical party reaction: one glorious night spent bathing in the pleasures of the flesh followed by a morning of pain? Morning? ****, it's still dark out--
    "Help!" a voice cried in the darkness. As if I didn't have enough problems.

    (c'mon dudes, let's get this going. I think I've done a farly good job of leaving the door open. )

    I can't believe I'm doing this! I've never done anything like this before. Yay!

    Name: Rachel Smith
    Age: 24
    Race and Alignment: Mortal, good girl
    Skills and weapons: Rachel is a book worm with a lot of computer skills, (she can hack into programs) she works for HIVER as a secretary, so nobody really is aware of this. She's VERY skilled with a stapler.

    Appearance: Average looking, not the type of girl you'd do a double-take for. But pretty, in a small town girl way. Very soulful eyes, rather sad, and full lips. Her hair is light brown and curly, she's petite, about 5'2.
    Bio: Rachel is quiet and very smart. She never says anything that doesn't need to be said, and carefully thinks about everything she does say. She grew up in the city, the youngest daughter of four. Her parents died when she was sixteen, so she's been on her own since then, working various jobs and putting herself through school. She applied for HIVER after finishing, and was hired as their secretary. Her sisters are scattered abroad, one working as a lawyer in the city, one married and living a couple states away, and one that's been missing for a several weeks. Rachel's love life is pretty boring as well, she has a crush on a guy at work named Doug, a nice computer tech with a gorgeous smile, and he's just started to notice Rachel.

    Name: Vyrr
    Age: 22
    Race and Alignment: Demon (has no stand point on good,bad, HIVER, etc. except the fact that his "my" current living situation sucks for lack of a better word.)
    Skills and Weapons: No weapon expertise, a quick thinker, normal "demonic" powers, current drug abuser.
    Appearance: Short dark brown hair, tanned skin that in the dark picks up a reddish tone, wears jeans (jeans never go out of style, only brand names), generic shirt, a leather bracelet and an old fashioned war dog tag. 5'10 with a slim build.
    Bio: Vyrr often wanders the suburbs drugged up on whatever his pocket money can afford, having learned no other way of living after leaving the orphanage at age 9. He resents the current government system, mostly due to his current living conditions and lack of knowledge. (I will leave the rest in character progression)
    Personality: Highly rebellious yet kind hearted to the under privileged. Often thinks about deeper aspects of life and the current global situation, but after moments of that, blinds his insight with drugs again.

    The Supreme Gamesmaster

    RPG SHEET

    Name: Ytidens Yddisac. Called the Supreme Gamesmaster Yddisac

    Age: ∞. So many time loops it got mixed up.

    Race and Alignment: Neutral Chimæra (1/3 angel, 1/3 demon, 1/3 human). His only task is to ensure the world remains in existence.

    Skills and weapons:

    Skill: Possession. No need to elaborate. There are restrictions, though.

    Skill: Errors. If HIVER is the world, the SGY's the one with the firewalls. No one in existence knows it — yet — but he's pretty much got the keys to the universe in his pocket. All the HTTP errors are at his disposal, and work any way he deems necessary.

    Skill: Master Override. HTTP error 666. No one — not even the SGY — knows what the heck this does. It's called the Master Override, though, so it's assumed that if we find out, no one will live to tell the tale. Let's just say the only way he's gonna use this is if life itself is the number one threat to the existence of the universe.

    Weapon: Chaos Drive. Not so much a weapon as a transport, the Chaos Drive slows time to a degree influenced by the user's will power and adrenaline level. Quintessentially, if you are so pissed about something happening that you'd do literally anything to prevent it, time screeches to a halt so you can do all the prevention you need. By the way, it's enchanted by the spirit of the mortal that helped form the Supreme Gamesmater, so you can only use it if you have the right intent, which means that two of three times, it doesn't work. Phooey.

    Weapon: Chaos Blade. An incredible mêlée weapon, Chaos Blade is enchanted by the spirit of the demonic dragon that helped form the Supreme Gamesmaster. Its demonic powers are incredible, and constantly expanding. It's known that most projectile attacks backfire while the target is holding Chaos Blade. Again, the weapon is sentient, so it only functions occasionally.

    Weapons: Chaos Ray. An incredible projectile weapon, Chaos Ray is enchanted by the spirit of the angelic dragon that helped form the Supreme Gamesmater. Its angelic powers are incredible, and constantly expanding. One thing that is known about it is that it can absorb weapons and projectiles for use as energy in later shots. The weapon is sentient, so its function is temperamental, to say the least.

    Appearance: Right here. Jason Engle is great at making images that represent stuff I think up. :confused:

    Bio: The SGY was originally three different beings: an angelic dragon, a demonic dragon, and a human priest that took care of both. One day, the two met, and in a desperate battle for their father's affection, came to the verge of killing each other. The fatal blasts were both absorbed by the priest as he interrupted the fight, causing the three beings to merge, becoming the chimæra Ytidens Yddisac.

    Soon afterwards, the SGY was contacted by Aten/YHVH/Jehovah/God/Murphy (or whoever that divine being with the beard was). Divine-being-with-the-beard told Yddisac that he was to simply make sure that no matter what happened, the world remained in existence. SGY took up the job despite his power issues, and has lived up to the task admirably until now, with the world on the verge of Armageddon. Secretly pilfering an angelic sword, a demonic gun, and a human engine, SGY reversed the functions of all three, making them the Chaos Blade, Chaos Ray, and Chaos Drive.

    SGY is apathetic, introverted, and stunningly intelligent, the perfect representation of the ISTJ "Mastermind" personality type. Accustomed to power, he's an expert at coercion, manipulation, and corruption. That's not to say he isn't a good leader: he never leads minions through challenges he's never faced himself without going with them, and is equitable and just to all under his charge. He seems to have taken the request to protect the world personally, and is pursuing it with ludicrous zeal. One of his major weaknesses is that he can never correctly estimate his power levels, majorly underestimating himself half the time and overestimating his abilites the other half.

    Notes: SGY can be seen as a personification of HIVER, composed of the three MAGI: one angel, one demon, and one neutral being. I'll be coming back with my first post soon.

    This sounds like fun!

    Name: Tabitha (Tabby) Olliemen.
    Age: She was born when the earth was created.
    Race and Alignment: Tabby is a newly found specie. She, and an other of her kind have been discovered, deap, deap underground and have articules made of rock, fire and some human.

    Skills and Weapons: She is one of the smartest creatures there is and knows a whole lot of medical techniques and science way beyond their knowlege, even if this i 2050. She's also very tiny and can squeeze in lots of places. :p
    Appearance: She has flaming hair and a very curvy body that any guy would die for. She has a dark rocky skin and red eyes, she isn't evil. She's very small, about the size of a hamster.

    Bio: When the earth was first born, somehow, a human cell got mixed up with rock and fire particules wich caused two creatures to come to life. Tabby and Luke. (Luke will also be played, sometimes, by me.) She lived all thise time in the rocky earth, half in a coma and half alive. She had the brains of a pure genius, even more, she knew everything. She is, even though her tiny size, strong like an avreage human from the 21st century, and can pretty much do a lot of things.
    So as the year 2020 aproached, a bunch of scientist figured out a way to dig deap under ground, and that's when they found little Tabby and woke her from her looooong sleep. They soon found out she could very well be the best discovery yet. She wasn't released as an avreage citizen until 2047.

    Personality: Tabby is a huge flirt and wants to hook up with any human guy she can. Her smart brains and strengh are good too but abreafe men don't really want to get involved with a flaming rock do they? Well, she's also really nice to everyone and loves meeting people, as she slept about two hundred billion years. You could say she's an abreage young woman, but just tiny, flaming and rocky.

    I've done this before on NG with some pleasing results, this one sounds very fun.

    Name:Frank Sellyon

    Age:100

    Race and Alignment:A demonic spirit given a mortal form by his lord in the abyss. Also he's evil (duh)

    Skills and Weapons:Given a basic human form, but jacked up big time, the strength of three men, the ability to shoot fire from his hands, the ability to influence the minds of animals, weak humans, and with some effort can control normal humans. Also given the writs of darkness from his demonic lord, allowing him to "trade for souls" corrupting man and angel alike it they accept.

    Appearance:An average looking man, wearing average clothes, with cool black hair, semi-tan skin, and green eyes than turn yellow when using powers. Has vicious mood swings, but relaxes quickly in the event of a turn for the better.

    Bio:Frank Sellyon was a small-time gang-affiliate until his 22nd birthday, sent out to kill an eccentric near Milwaukee for the Don of the mob there. He turned out to be involved with the occult and after effectively dealing with the people there an unknown force caused Frank to pass out. He awoke atop a mountain overlooking the world with a man in a suit who he knew to be Satan nearby. He was offered the world much in the same way Christ was, though in Frank's case he gave in. Ever since then Frank acted as independent man turned demon for his lord to whom he was given by Satan. Hr spent the time of the great Hiva crisis in Hell waiting to be sent to the mortal plane once more, ready to use what he had for the benefit of his master and his own unconscionable thirst for destruction.

    Is that alright?

    This game has no current Game-master. If anyone will take it over, it can be revived. If no one wants to take over the game-master, then the game is dead.
