Yeah, this is all real world. Though certain myths are included, especially from other religions, like I know centaurs guard one of the layers of hell, and I know medusa, cerberus, and the minotuar are in hell.

take all previous mythical creatures and throw them in hell. christian writers are so lazy.

Personally I find it showing less laziness. By actually including them into the story it shows knowledge of the other non-christian cultures.

I have to agree. I too am baffled by Deva's criticism. It's like a boorish attempt at critiquing Christianity. :p

IMO:

All religions share something in common and are connected...which makes this interesting. It's like a super-mega crossover. :)

I'm thinking we'll be in a major tourist destination during a terrorist attack, the journey to Hell will be a result of their souls being driven from their bodies after the attacks. Each character will have something in their lives they need to fix and going to hell will show them this before their souls are returned to their bodies after the quest.

The Tourist destination will allow us to have a cast of people from all different cultures and beliefs.

What kind of characters I need:
A Priest or Preacher, the very religious Christian type who THINKS he'd never end up in hell. - Claimed, Me
A Soldier who either cheated on his wife or had his wife cheat on him while he was overseas.
A Prostitute
A Member of a non-Christian Religion, preferably very devout (Likely a Muslim) It'd REALLY make an interesting plot point if he/she knew the terrorists responsible for the attacks.

Other Useful ideas for characters:
A former devout Christian who turned his back on his church and religion, likely becoming a Drunk
A Gangbanger who thinks he's all cool and tough but turns out to be a baby when confronted with the horrors of Hell.
A Homosexual or Transgendered person (Someone who represents alternate lifestyles in gender relations)
A Satanist
A Racist (At some point he will be saved by someone of a different race)
A Rape Victem (I like the idea of her encountering the rapist in Hell and choosing to forgive or condemn him)

These are by no means the requirements. If you have other character ideas, feel free to post them. These are just suggestions I have, let me know if you want one of the currently listed roles.

This RP will VERY MUCH be about character development and how the characters change over time as they realize their sins and try to correct them before it's too late.

I,m assuming an addict? As each character has that major sin they have to overcome.

The Character Creation Thread is now up.

I'm tempted to make this RP set slightly in the future in order to include Fred Phelps in Hell, seeing as he's not dead yet.    XD...... I REALLY hate that guy.

Maybe one of our characters killed him out of self righteous fury. ;)

Maybe I have a character idea now. :p

Hey you.. still got room int he RP? I'm all for playing, thought I'm better with perhaps playing and innocent that traded his/her soul away to protect one he/she loved most. If your up for that, otherwise I'm sure I can think of something else.

Or maybe the person they cared about was dragged to hell and they want to save them?


Kind of like how Dante went In to save Beatrice In the video game version of Dante's Inferno.
