Okay, I did up a writing sample for my RTJ to join this thread, and I liked it so much I'm throwing around a scenario for it. I'l lpost the sample and then tell you my story ideas and if anyone is interested I'll apply for a thread.
Temin Rho glanced furtively around the dark, rain swept streets, as his mark scurried past. Seeing no one else about he scampered noiselessly over the puddle, strewn street, to the shadows of another doorway a few buildings down, but still a good distance behind the unsuspecting woman as she made her way quickly toward the safety of her home.
Darting down a side ally way he then ran parallel to her course, before slipping into another dark, shadowy side street two blocks ahead of the mark. Standing in the shadows he adjusted the hood of his rain parka, and retrieved the Garrote, from a pouch at his waist. lightning flashed, for the briefest of seconds, just as the woman passed him.
In an instant he was upon her. Slipping the thin wire around her neck he began dragging her into the darkness. Of course she struggled, groping in vain trying to grab him, dislodge him, anything to free herself from the death that was eminently upon her. She tried to scream but, Temin was an expert and she found herself unable to do more than gasp, and perhaps whimper.
“There is no use in struggle,” his voice had a thick Egyptian accent. ”Struggling only makes it more painful. I promise I will make this quick.”
He adjusted his grip and the instrument of death bit deeper into the flesh of her neck. The first trickle of blood began to seep from the wound, as he drug her deeper into the shadows.
“Pl..Please. Don't Kill me.” she managed to whine, her breathing becoming more and more labored.
“That my dear Jasmin depends on you. There are things I must do,” he whispered his breath hot on her ear. “Things that might hurt, and things that you may not like. Yet they must be done. You have been chosen Jasmin. You should feel honored.
So you have a choice to make my dear. Allow me to do the things that must be done, or die.”
Okay there it is. Here is what I have been thinking about:
Temin Rho appears human, but this is not the case. He is an in fact a Muumy. Not your typical D&D Mummy, more like from the Movie Trilogy, or White Wolf. Not really undead but like resurected. In his time(ancient egypt) he was the favorite lover of the ruler of egypt, a lovely, cruel, and dominating woman (no name yet) who had ambitions of world conquest. He was also an elite warrior assigned as as part of her personal guard.
A rival, seeking to depose her for the greater good staged a coupe attempt. and during the palace assualt, she was mortally wounded with Temin only a few feet away. Though he succeeded in slaying her murderers, he failed to save her life.
He vowed to bring her back to the land of the livign by any means necasary and began studying dark arts in hopes of learning of a way to resurect her. When his studies were discovered he executed. However, his vow was so strong that the God of the dead(or something similar) arranged for him to be resurected.
The god instilled in him the ability to return his lover to life through procreation. He has been tasked by the God to travel the world in search of the perfect woman to bear his child, who will become the reincarnation of his long lost love. He cannot rest unbtil this mission is fullfilled.
For centuries he has roamed the streets of nearly every major city. A string of serial murders follow in his wake as he seeks the woman who will bear his child. Through the help of his Master(the God), he is able to determine if he has successfully impregnated the woman or not. Over one hundred women in the past ten years alone, have turned up dead, yet still he has not found the one. Maybe this one will be different.
I'm looking for a female to portray the part of the woman who may or may not be the chosen one(up to her). It will begin with him stalking her, perhaps tryign to openly woo her, then resorting to violence if necasary to reach his goals.
