The whole working in the light of day was always different for Nox. Being Atharim meant hiding in the shadows to keep the world safe. Now with his new appointment to Domovoi unit of the CCD PD Nox was working in the light of day. He didn't have a badge, but that didn't matter he worked with either Dorian, Ivan or Lih or one of the other guys in the unit. But usually it was Dorian - mostly because Dorian left him alone and didn't want to come with him. Ivan and Lih were still new to the whole lets go hunting monsters in the depths of the tunnel. But Dorian also insisted Nox do things top side. Stay current with the monsters above the ground too. So that's what Nox did. He was wandering the streets of Moscow like he used to do with Aria. They'd combed through the city and the tunnels the same way. Making maps with their land warriors and cataloging the world from the eyes of the Atharim. Possible nests, various other signs, checking out stories found in the news. And even monitoring the police chatter of call ins. Those were some of the best things to look through. The cops didn't understand what they were hearing but a trained Atharim knew the signs. And Nox knew what he was doing. Born and raised Atharim. Was going to die Atharim until he became a God and then decided killing gods wasn't his cup of tea and sided with them. Choices and all that. Today Nox was listening to the scanner on his wallet while walking the streets of Moscow. Nothing new was going on at least yet. But that was preferable.
I ran one of these a couple years back. This is not my idea for a world, but I actively play in the original. With permission from the RP staff and The First Age I'm going try to run one a scenario here. This first post is just some back story so you can get an idea of what type of character you can jump in on (no bios needed). The time is Spring 2046 in Moscow, DI, formerly part of Russia. The Ascendancy has united most of the world under the CCD (I forget what it stands for - forgive me). The world language is mostly English, but native areas still speak their own tongue but it's mostly used in private. Channelers have only recently been reborn into the world after the Atharim eradicated them during the God Wars. The Ascendancy has just revealed to the world through a televised broadcast of reforming the Mausoleum in the Red Square into a giant arch using the One Power. Very little is known about Channeling. They know that it is linked with "The Sickness" and if you survive you are typically blocked. In Wheel of Time Dragon Reborn Age terms there only wilders. During the God wars the Gods (channelers) created items of war, monsters that exist now are what is left of these creations. Our mythical creatures of modern pop culture are based on these, but there are no vampires or werewolves or even ghosts as you know them. But there are creatures that suck or lick blood from their victims, the wolfkin survived the changes in the world, and wefuke have been known to possess people and do horrible things. The Atharim hunt these creatures down and keep humanity safe, while they wait for the return of the Gods and try to protect the world from them to prevent what happened before. I am going to be pulling my various characters in to tell this story. But you are free to jump in and make events go awry or join the hunt for whatever or whoever did the deed. This is a modern age, slightly futuristic world your characters can be channelers, one of the police, a prophet, a wolfkin, atharim, sentient, furia, or any of the other playable classes in the First Age. If you have questions feel free to ask.
