I am grateful for the assistance and I hope to see people enjoy themselves playing both the Demons and Mortals. The idea of a little evil in all of us, and ability to do something dark comes up time to time. In this game, both Demons and Mortals are in a rare circumstance. There is real power to be had, and the smart or desperate may rise up higher and higher.
Is it the demon that gains the soul essence from the one that calls upon it, or is it the mortal that acquires a wish that might otherwise well lay beyond their means, that benefits more? Its both symbiotic, and parasitic at the same time. Both sides gain benefits, but neither is doing out of the kindness of their hearts, in fact, both of them are no doubt seeking to gain more in exchange for less.
In a world where Angels fear to roam, in a land where a sorcerous word can bring forth riches and revenge, pleasure and pain, what mortal is moral enough to stand up forever? If offered an easy way out, a temptation to use power beyond your own means, would you not seek it? Surely you are smarter, know where your limits lay, and make use of the dark force while keeping away from letting it corrupt you entirely, keeping away from the utter damnation, even if by a hair's width only ?
Or perhaps you willingly take the last step, call upon the dark gods, and bring forth something that should not be, damn all else but yourself and your wish, when you know how to command power that others could only dream about, do you really want to waste a thought on those who have to fall for your ambition?
Likewise, while the demons of the New Hell have a twisted kingdom of their own, waiting for the arrival of new souls calling upon them for the summons, the wishes, they are unlikely to spend all their time in just hiding, waiting. If anything, they are likely scheming, or taking amusement in bringing a mortal down. Whether pushing an already corrupt over the last line or leashing the soul of a virtuous person with a contract, the power of the one that controls the souls grows.
Within the darkness sits a Demon Prince, a demon nobility keeping this section of Hell sealed away from the 'old guard', the 'big boys' that would trample on the younger demons and take the souls they want. In this section of Hell, now protected by a Demon Prince, the young demons have an unique opportunity. They may raise their power and perhaps become the Lords of Hell in time.
Its truely better to Rule in Hell than to Serve in Heaven, or so say the fallen.. and its even better when a damned soul is the one doing the work... but in their life, they may have been the model of a century, the millionaire lottery winner, the infamous thug with the luck of a damned god, or so much more.
Heheheh. I apologise, I get a bit tempted to write a little strange things at times, but I hope it gets a person intrigued enough to check the rest of things posted up, and to check our threads.
