The Long Night (GAME CLOSED!)

“Welcome to the end of the modern world as we know it and the beginning of the Long Night. Fight and survive, submit and serve or lay down and die. The choice is yours.”

System: BESM 3e
Premise: “A Demon Invasion”
Genre: Supernatural
Category: Horror/Action
Setting: Babylon (a fictional large city in a country in the western world)
Period: Near future – 2021 C.E
Style: Hentai


Background: Demons have walked amongst human kind for centuries. These beings are not the demons of the bible, they are powerful supernatural creatures from another dimension – and they want out. The existence of their kind has been the world’s best-kept secret… until now. A series of events have led a number of government agencies to become aware of their existence… however it is already too late – the end is already upon us.
Those demons that currently walk the earth are but a handful of the masses that seethe in their darkened underworld. Many of those already present on earth are scouts and spies, preparing for the impending invasion. Others are powerful elder demons that have hidden amongst us for millennia.
Demons are as varied as human kind. Some are massive hulking creatures with razor sharp claws which maim and destroy with wild abandon, others are human sized and winged, still others go on four or six legs or use tentacles to attack, entangle and rape their victims. Many are shape-shifters but all possess amazing supernatural powers. A great number of demons can take human form, others can possess humans as hosts and move invisibly in the world of man. Some demons bend the will of humans to their bidding with just the powers of their mind, others seek to beguile humans into doing their bidding with cunning, lies, or the promise of power.
They have all come to earth to escape their previous home world. Some seek to rule humankind as slaves, others merely treat humans as playthings to be used and discarded, others seek to wipe all human life from the face of the earth leaving just demon kind to walk the planet. A few even seek to walk along side human beings in peace or even ally with us.
Although united in their assault on earth, once they are here the many clans and factions within the ‘race’ of demons are likely to turn on one another as they carve up and divide their new home world amongst their kind as well as fight for the spoils.
Each demon embodies a concept, commonly: lust, rage, hatred, avarice, greed, vengeance, pride, power etc. This “concept” is the driving force behind their motivations on earth. Many of their powers are also based around these concepts.

All male demons have a special taste for mortal women.

Sexual content: I expect this campaign to contain non-consensual sex, gang rape, slavery, imprisonment, humiliation/degradation and possibly some pain/light torture. Tentacle rape/sex will feature but will not be exclusive by any means. Some of this can be modified to suit the tastes of the players, however N/C is a must.

Violence: This is a horror/action game. During and after the invasion itself violence will be commonplace so a high level of violence will be involved, some of this sexual.

***If you’re not comfortable with this content, please don’t ask to join.

Campaign overview: The campaign will begin in the months leading up to the invasion. Most of humankind lives in blissful ignorance of its fate. The invasion itself will be as fast as it is violent. The civilised world is torn asunder as the superpowers of the world fight back. Millions of humans die, as many by human folly as at the hands of the demonic invaders. In the wake of the invasion the world is transformed, largely into a wasteland. Small pockets of civilisation remain however.
Demons stalk the night and humans hide, evade and carry out calculated strikes on demonic strongholds. For human kind, life is either servitude at the hands of demons, or a constant struggle to survive. This is essentially a post-apocalyptic world. An organised resistance against the demons is formed, including Awakened humans who are gradually becoming more powerful as they begin to master their newly discovered powers.

Characters: I see most of the players being relatively “regular people” living within the city in the lead-up to the invasion. Some will discover their supernatural powers and are “Awakened” shortly before the demon invasion, others are just mundane folk going about their lives.
Possible concepts: Regular joe (office worker/wage slave, student etc.), demon hunters, investigator working for government agency, half-demon spy, occultist/demon worshiper, occult investigator. You get the idea. I’m open to other concepts though.
I think the most interesting characters would be “regular joe” types. Imagine a young private school girl who survives the demon apocalypse and discovers that she has un-tapped supernatural powers. She survives by hiding underground at night and only moving about during the day to find food. She meets up with a variety of other characters along her journey, many which are killed along the way. After many trials she is found and later joins a resistance group where she begins fighting back against the demons using her developing powers.
So I guess what I’m saying is, I think “real” characters who will under go some kind of evolution/change during the crisis would be interesting to play/G.M. That being said, I’ll leave it up to the players to decide what they’d like to play and in what direction they’d like the game to go.

*There is the possibility of some players taking on the role of demons, these would be exclusively male characters and would be significantly more powerful than humans. Munchkins, power games and min/max players need not apply!

Source of power: For those characters possessing supernatural powers
Demonic blood –  Character is a half demon or “ghoul” (via ingesting demonic blood or semen).
Demonic pact – Character has made a supernatural deal with a demon to gain power.
Awakened human – Character discovers she is one of the 1 in 10,000 people with supernatural powers.

(More details on system mechanics to come)

Players: PLEASE READ! (I’m seeking 2-6 no more)
I’m looking for creative, reliable, active players who can create an interesting character and who are willing to help collaboratively tell a story in which their character changes and evolves over time. Good, detailed writing is a must as are players who are willing to commit to an ongoing campaign. A friendly attitude and willingness to socialise with the other players will also help, as will the ability to compromise from time to time, as this is not a solo game.

This game will involve both posting in a forum and I.M roleplay. I.M session times will be decided by negotiation once we have a group of players.

Interested in playing? Please be aware that this is not a “first come first served” type game. I’d like to create a fun, cohesive group of players. If you’re interested in playing, please P.M me with a character profile and answers to a set of character questions (below).
Yes, I guess this is kinda an “application process” – if you find this confronting, so be it! You went through a process to join E after all. I’m looking for committed players and if you can’t even write a decent bio on your character, then this isn’t the game for you ☺

Character creation questions: Feel free to go into as much detail as you like.
1, Where was your character born? (What part of the city of Babylon?)
2, What is your character’s main motivation?
3, What is your character’s greatest strength? Greatest weakness?
4, What is your character’s greatest hope? Greatest fear?
5, What are your character’s favourite and least favourite things/possessions?
6, What about your character’s emotions? Is there anything that ‘pushes his/her buttons?’
7, Is your character aware of the demonic in the world? If so, why?
8, If you could, what advice would you give your character?
9, What is your character’s sexual orientation and sexual proclivities?
10, If your character had one wish, what would he/she wish for? (Pre demon invasion)

Pre-Campaign Writing:
A question for inspiration to get players writing about their characters at the start of the campaign: “How does <insert character name> spend the months leading up to the end of the world?” My aim is to get everyone to write a short passage about what their character does day to day. Do they have an inkling of what is to come? Or are they completely oblivious to the fact their entire life is about to be violently changed?

G.M – About me: I have G.Med campaigns for 16 years now, some have spanned up to 3-4 years in length both online and in RL. I prefer a “storyteller” style of game where the players aren’t just passively working their way through a pre-determined plot but are pro active and help to weave the story along with me. I’ve always wanted to run a proper campaign using these themes, but never found the players willing to do it ;-)
I put a lot of work into the games I run. I try to include interesting, compelling plots, detailed N.P.Cs and protagonists with real motivations, a world which is NOT passive and is constantly changing and where the actions of the P.Cs can and will change the place. I also G.M worlds where actions have consequences and which do not simply revolve around the P.Cs. The P.Cs are also not surrounded by impenetrable shields. If you join, expect a gritty game, expect to be challenged and hopefully excited by the prospects of the game to come ;-)

Thanks for reading.

Offline Thorn14

Character profile:
Name: 'Thorn' North
Concept: Demon Hunter In Training
Age: 20
Gender: Female
Powers/skills/abilities: Human, but knowledge about demons, and fighting skills.

Appearance: http://i8.photobucket.com/albums/a29/Thorn14/Thorncolor.jpg

Background: Thorn grew up never knowing her parents in life. For as long as she can remember, she had been raised at the Yin and Yang Dojo. While simple apperances seem to be a large dojo for children and adults to learn to defend themselve, underneath it had a much bigger purposes. The family that owned it were part of a secret group of demon and other supernatural hunters. They werent huge by any means, but they have had a long history of facing against the unknown and supernatural and dealing with them from the shadows. There she learned the secrets to investigating, and eliminating spirits, demons, ghosts, and other unseen foes that threaten human kind. She doesnt know what future she has, but she is one year away from completing her training and going into on the world!


Motivation/aims: Stop demons from hurting innocent people.

1, Where was your character born? (What part of the city of Babylon?)
(WIP)
2, What is your character’s main motivation?
To continue her training and help stop the supernatural from hurting those unable to defend herself. As well as learning how to be a more sociable person.
3, What is your character’s greatest strength? Greatest weakness?
Knowledge of demons, combat skills. Her weaknesses are her shyness, tendency to jump into battle, and low willpower.
4, What is your character’s greatest hope? Greatest fear?
She hopes she can one day have a carefree life. But she doesnt want that until she knows she has earned it. She fears all her training ending up for naught.
5, What are your character’s favourite and least favourite things/possessions?
She does have a bit of a taste for some foods and drinks (pop, seafood). She doesnt own alot of possessions, other than her equipment. She hates bitter things.
6, What about your character’s emotions? Is there anything that ‘pushes his/her buttons?’
She is very kind, almost too much so. What pushes her buttons the most is seeing anyone being hurt and cannot defend themselves. ESPECIALLY if they are being ganged up on. (She almost got expelled from her training when she saw a group of 8 teenagers beating up one person, and took down each and every one of them.)
7, Is your character aware of the demonic in the world? If so, why?
Yes, because of her training. Although she doesnt have much 'first hand' experience!
8, If you could, what advice would you give your character?
She needs to not see things in Black and White.
9, What is your character’s sexual orientation and sexual proclivities?
She never thought of it actually. She is still a virgin. The thought of having a boyfriend scares her though.
10, If your character had one wish, what would he/she wish for? (Pre demon invasion)
To be at the top of her skills and training and use them to help others when need be.

Obviously more to come. Brain...not work...good now.

It's a good start to a character Thorn14.

Looks like we have two female demon hunters so far, one which is a part of a small secretive private team of hunters with  mysterious wealthy/powerful benefactor.

I feel we need some "regular" type people in the game, at least one of which should be female i reckon. We also have space for one or two players to play male demons if someone wants to walk that path.

Background: Stan was born in the back alleys of Babylon to a crack whore and a drug addict.  The city soon took him away from his mother and he was raised in an orphanage. He was given a pack of cards when he turned five and that’s when his new life started.  He began to master card games and began gambling with other orphans at the age of ten after watching the adults do it.  He built up from there amassing a small fortune and enough to buy a home in the city.  He goes to college now as a front to convince idiot college kids to join his games.  He was always was smart enough to carry a gun should the playing go sour and has committed half a dozen murders to insure that no one rats him out.  His numerous police contacts ensure no one gets suspicious when someone ‘disappears’ and the body usually turns up in a dorm clean and fresh with overdose levels of drugs in them.  He currently is in a semi-retired state and only plays for fun or in the local tournaments held by the underground players.  He plans on reopening his trade soon and just bought a few poisons so his weapon wouldn’t be so obvious.  Stan recently joined a cartel/black market at the school which supplies students with illegal drugs and more ‘potent’ alcohols, they also for a fee ensure grades don’t slip and provide protection for the weaker students.  They’ve been known to rig school sports and even sell weapons, Stan feels accepted in this area; though his conscience is starting to get the better of him.  Unknown to Stan, the cartel is monitoring all of his connections and has all of his friends in their sights should he ever think about leaving.


Motivation/aims: Staying alive and ensuring that the human race survives.  He seeks vengeance on the demon’s for ruining his calm life style.  His goal is too one day open a mom and pop diner, much to his closer friend’s surprise.  He also seeks to create his own string of gambling joints and hotels later.

3, What is your character’s greatest strength? Greatest weakness? Stan’s greatest strength is his ability to analyze any situation and find a ‘good’ outcome for himself.  Obviously his greed is his biggest weakness

4, What is your character’s greatest hope? Greatest fear?  His greatest hope is to someday be accepted by the high class.  His greatest fear is that he’ll be caught by the police for his illegal gambling

5, What are your character’s favourite and least favourite things/possessions?  Stan’s favorite possession is his deck of tarot cards and a locket that he won off his old caretaker.  He sold all of his least favorite things.

6, What about your character’s emotions? Is there anything that ‘pushes his/her buttons?’ Stan is a very emotional guy and will not hesitate to tell people what he thinks or feels, he is mostly over confident, but can be easily frightened when nothing serious is going on.  He gets his buttons pushed by cheaters and liars ironically.

7, Is your character aware of the demonic in the world? If so, why? No

8, If you could, what advice would you give your character?  Stop worrying about the money and watch your ass!

9, What is your character’s sexual orientation and sexual proclivities?  Straight and anything is good to him.

10, If your character had one wish, what would he/she wish for? (Pre demon invasion)  All the money in the world and adoring masses at his feet.

This concept is going to need some serious reworking to fit into the game. At the moment i'm reading "greedy gambler" - but apart from the accumulation of wealth, what else motivates him? What's he going to pursue in the wake of the demon invasion?

PM coming your way about this soon.

Pretty much the average human in that situation...stay alive no matter what the costs

Offline Zaer Darkwail

I am not familiar with BESM system either but here is my char;

Name: Vandren Wells
Concept: Average 'good for nothing' dreamer handsome youth who's life gets thoroughly fucked up
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Powers/skills/abilities: Studied many stuff in his youth but never became 'expert' at them. Has deep and long got addiction to DnD games, computer, console and even tabletop. But he has sleeping demonic blood in his veins, which is slowly awakening inside him when invasion approaches, and explodes upon dooms day and starts transform him into half-demon slowly.
Appearance: At presently he looks like this; http://images2.fanpop.com/images/forum/37000/37353_1252207108660_320_320.jpg
But when he reaches end of his transformations;http://media.photobucket.com/image/handosme%20anime%20boys/WhiteFoxNeko/random%20anime/anime-1.jpg
Background: Vandren Wells both parents were hard working labour workers, mother working in factory and father in construction yards. While both sweated he had easy life of videogames and comics, he was good at school and got potential to almost anything.....but he never took full wing of his potential and instead wasted many years 'trying out' stuff and discarding them as time passed on. He is decent shoot with a gun, has practiced dozen martia arts in two month freebie class period, he has done anime drawing and he has done nice camera work. But none of these came out to be career supported things but more short lived hobbies.

So, naturally he has no work as he has only basic degree on varied professions and he is naturally lazy to look for work, he lives with parents still and altough mother is forgiving sort his father has grown angrier and bitter more towards his 'good for nothing' son and that has caused big chasm of bitterness grow between them. Escalating almost to hatred. While with mother Vandren is close, and altough mother does not share any parts of Vandren's life she loves him as her son and knows he has talent for greatness.....just lack of inspiration for it.

1, Where was your character born? (What part of the city of Babylon?)
= He was born and raised in industry district, near his parents both work places. He got basic education in local school and then he went to center of Babylon for high school and university (and he drops out always around last months of university and so he never had got graduation degree in any field)

2, What is your character’s main motivation?
= At normal life; nothing much besides live life little effort done by himself as he can. He does not desire to be rich or wellfaring, just a 'okay' life with a good girl which could become his life and get kids if his wife wants some and raise kids. But not interested to do actual labor or work towards that goal.

3, What is your character’s greatest strength? Greatest weakness?
= Greatest strenght is imagination, years of gaming has given wide berth of knowlegde in that field and also imagination for stories. Also he can remain surprising calm and not take stress from things, but weakness is also he is plain lazy youth who lacks driving passion to do something more. He of course does not lay down and die if someone attacks him with knife, but instead focus defeat foe (even if he could do so easily) he most likely runs away as it's most safest thing to do and easiest thing to do.

4, What is your character’s greatest hope? Greatest fear?
= Vandren does not have high expectations to his future and so does not hold hopes for it. Greatest fear is simply to live and die alone, as in end of the day he would happily live just by himself so long he would have friends around him. But alone....it would be both sad and frigthening to him.

5, What are your character’s favourite and least favourite things/possessions?
= Vandren favorite possessions are comics, DnD books (which he like shuffle and build up imaginary characthers daily and create stories for them) and of course his nice jeans and leather jacket. Most annoying possession is simply said cell phone; as heis forced carry it around so people can contact him any time and he always haves to fear losing it (as he lost his first cell phone just forgetting it lay in cafe table where it got stolen his father went scary berserk alike).

6, What about your character’s emotions? Is there anything that ‘pushes his/her buttons?’
= None deep emotions besides his deep affection to his hobby and his mother. Also desire befriend people and make friends.

7, Is your character aware of the demonic in the world? If so, why?
= He has always thinked there was other dimensions but it's more philosophical thougths than actual sure knowlegde of it.

8, If you could, what advice would you give your character?
= Get a freaking single goal and stick with it to bitter end. To pick one his dreams and hold on it tight while pushing forward to make dream become real.

9, What is your character’s sexual orientation and sexual proclivities?
= Vandren is hetero but has got interest on hentai stuff, mostly fetish wear, be dominant, have a slave (favorite fantasy; have a harem and him being master) and also got some interest on tentacle sex and also curious and unique women (and so is drawn to ethnic backgrounded women than plain european stock).

10, If your character had one wish, what would he/she wish for? (Pre demon invasion)
= Get a hot woman love him rest of his life and provide his material needs (basically marry a rich superstar actress who does not mind be main and only source of money in marriage)

This game sounds fun, so i thought I'd offer a character concept for consideration :-) If there are no spaces left, I'd understand!

Character profile:
Name: Alison Lane
Concept: shop owner: sells "antiques", seasonal decorations, silk flowers and such curio's.
Age: 24
Gender:female
Powers/skills/abilities: social skills, bartering/bargaining, cooking, gardening, running (jogging)
Appearance: A slender woman with green eyes, dark brown hair cut in a messy bob. She often wears jeans and a sweater, or a frivolous skirt when the weather allows.
Background: She is the only child of Lars Lane, construction worker and Mary Louise Stafford, private secretary of CEO Mark Saunders of Saunders Import and Export. It is through her mother's connections that Alison has been able to acquire her often special merchandize.
Motivation/aims: Alison wants to make the world a better place. She is a dreamer who tries to make her small apartment look appealing and bright and she wishes to spread some of that brightness among the people.

Character creation questions: Feel free to go into as much detail as you like.
1, Where was your character born? (What part of the city of Babylon?) : Industrial district where her dad works, her mother commutes for her job.
2, What is your character’s main motivation? The smile of a stranger - ie, spread happiness
3, What is your character’s greatest strength? Greatest weakness? : optimism is her greatest strength, combined with a good amount of her wilpower, her weakness is that she may take too much for granted and refuses to open her eyes to the evil and greedy motivations of those around her.
4, What is your character’s greatest hope? Greatest fear? She dreams of love and fears that she will see all hope and dreams vanish from this world before the end of time.
5, What are your character’s favourite and least favourite things/possessions? She absolutely loves the jade pendant she got from her parents when she turned 18. She loves the color green and the smoothness of the stone. Often, she will be seen twirling it between her fingers when she's thinking. Her least favorite possession is the fat old buddha sitting in her shop window. The damn thing survived the centuries and is too valuable to throw away, too big to place anywhere else and no one is ever going to buy it since it represents beliefs long gone.
6, What about your character’s emotions? Is there anything that ‘pushes his/her buttons?’ She is an even tempered and bright person most of the time who is slow to anger and even slower to calm down once her temper flares. Things that set her off are blatantly contradicting her without providing arguments, prolonged nonsense, and deliberate injustice.
7, Is your character aware of the demonic in the world? If so, why? No, she is not.
8, If you could, what advice would you give your character? Grow up!! The world isn't going to turn into fairy tale!
9, What is your character’s sexual orientation and sexual proclivities? She is straight (no F-F). She has had a boyfriend, Michael, until recent but they broke it off as he could not live with the excuses she always sought for his selfish mom, and she couldn't take his martyr stance towards life.
10, If your character had one wish, what would he/she wish for? (Pre demon invasion) True love.

Name: Cruor Everto
Concept: Blood Demon
Age: Unknown
Gender: Male
Powers/skills/abilities: Manipulation of human bodies, souls and emotions.
Appearance: Demon Form:
                   Human Form:
Background: Cruor left the "demon realm" of his own free will. Without permission from his "Masters", he was labeled an outcast and traitor until the day demons ruled the Earth. Being confined in his human form he has learned that some of his power faintly lingers.
Motivation/aims: Since Cruor is trapped in his human form, he must make due with what he can. Curiously living as a human, he is aware that the "Judgement Day" is coming but not a specific date. Until the time of reckoning, hee must decide if he is to help save the humans, slay the humans, or remain on neutral grounds.

Character creation questions: Feel free to go into as much detail as you like.
1, Where was your character born? In the depths of the fiery hell-spawn that is the demon realm, he was "born" from the sins of man.
2, What is your character’s main motivation? Originally created to help overthrow man kind, he has a biased opinion towards the humans. However, his demon brethren have disowned him for his actions leaving him an outcast in both worlds.
3, What is your character’s greatest strength? Greatest weakness? Cruor can manipulate the flesh and blood of humans as a weapon, as a puppet or for other reasons. However his powers allow him to tap into the emotions of the human he is controlling which can leave him drained and "emotionally scarred".
4, What is your character’s greatest hope? Greatest fear? Cruor deepest desire is to totally control the human race with his powers, however by being a human himself he is subject to all these new feelings and emotions he had never experienced giving him a self of fear for the human race and a sense of survival.
5, What are your character’s favourite and least favourite things/possessions? Cruor has a hatred for all things holy and under gods name. His favorite thing is a small trinket a little girl gave him the first day he was on earth. His first worldly attachment.
6, What about your character’s emotions? Is there anything that ‘pushes his/her buttons?' Cruor has a very naive persona in his human form. All the things that were engrained in his mind do not apply to the mortal realm so he has a very confused look on his face most of the time. He has no tolerance for any human that complains about how miserable and painful their life is. No human has experienced the pain that he has. At least not yet.
7, Is your character aware of the demonic in the world? If so, why? Yes. Completely aware and understanding of the demonic presence in this world. However in his human form he can only sense the presence of demons and cannot interact or see them.
8, If you could, what advice would you give your character? Choose wisely your side of the battle.
9, What is your character’s sexual orientation and sexual proclivities? Cruor has a strong understanding and urge to lust. However the human emotions he has been given tend to leave him confused about the difference between lust and love.
10, If your character had one wish, what would he/she wish for? (Pre demon invasion) He could transform into his true self in the mortal world.

Hi all,

F.Y.I - i've had a very big response to this game. So big i've filled it two times over in fact, so i can't take any more players, sorry!

I'm exploring the best way to do this campaign with so many players. Currently i'm working through character creation with people and running some short solo intro sessions for characters where i can.

I'll be PMing all the players that have been accepted shortly. I'm also in the process of setting up a forum for the game so people can post their short fiction etc.

Thanks.
