Forbidden Power Introduction
Somewhere in the tropics of the Pacific and Indian Oceans is an island controlled by a family with a forbidden power. The members of this family have dark black hair and violet eyes. When on their island, they can alter a personís physical reality. With their abilities, they can manipulate a personís form to their exact will. They have even been known to manipulate the clothes a person wears or any item they are carrying.
Using this power they have enriched themselves. From the island the family dabbles in multiple trades that bring in great revenue. They own drug plantations across the world and deal extensively in the worst business imaginable. Wealthy people from across the world who heard rumors seek the island out, some because the family is known to be able to cure the most advanced diseases, others for the famed brothel that produces living sex toys to the exact tastes of the client, and others for the best youth treatments in the world.
Marco Xantelli, the patron of the Xantelli family and boss of the Xantelli empire, oversees everything from the Xantelli manor in the center of the island. His powers exceed and override all other members of the family. He is so powerful that he can actually change the location of the island, warping it to another location within the pacific ocean if he feels it is in danger.Powers of the FamilyItems:
Any item held by a victim can be morphed or changed into any other item imaginable. Though the change takes more or less time depending on how different the new item is from the original. Clothing:
Any article of clothing worn by a victim can be shrunk or change at the will of a Xantelli to any other article of clothing imaginable.Body Alteration & Shape Shifting:
Any body part can be altered. The body of a victim is like clay to a Xantelli, they can alter shape, size, coloration, texture, how it functions. They are so adept at changing the forms of their victims that virtually anything is possible. In fact, it is easier to list what isnít possible than what is. Many of the beasts of burden and other animals that populate the small island nation are agents from other nations that escaped the much worse fate of becoming sexual art for the vast brothel.Inanimate Objects:
Many victims of the Xantelli become inanimate objects. One never knows if that luxurious grandfather clock may have been somebodyís grandfather. Partial Stage Transformations:
Sometimes a Xantelli may bore with a subject before a transformation is completed, or the victim may be discovered to have not enough money to finish a procedure. This often leads to partial transformation that leave a victim stuck between two forms.The Strange and the outlandish:
It may be the victims fate to become a monster of repulsive sexual traits, to have many limbs, multiple sexual organs, or sexual organs of extreme size and stamina. The creature the victim becomes may still resemble something humanoid, or it may not look anything like a human at all. Shrinking & Growth:
This has its limits even among the most powerful of the Xantelli. They can grow a person up to twenty times their normal size or shrink them down to a 1/64th scale at the highest and lowest limits. Self Alteration:
This is impossible for all but the most powerful and highest class members of the family. Meaning in this case, only Marco and Maria have achieved this capability.Limits of the Family PowersThe Eighteen barrier:
Anyone younger than eighteen is immune from sexual relations with a Xantelli. In fact, if a Xantelli has sexual relations with someone under eighteen, they will crumble into dust and die. A Xantelli family member does not receive their powers until their eighteenth birthday.The Sixteen Barrier:
Anyone younger than sixteen is immune to all Xantelli powers. Age Regression:
The Xantelliís are unable to regress anyone to under the physical age of eighteen. However, they can advance age quite easily, though most find it repulsive and counter productive to do so.Size Barriers:
There are limits to how large or how small a Xantelli can make their creation. In general, it is frowned upon to make creations so big that they are overly visible.The Island:
With the possible of exception of the family boss, it is rarely possible for a family member to use their power outside the island further than twelve miles from its shores.Mind Control:
No subject can simply be controlled. Whatever form they take, theyíre bodies are still in their control. It is impossible to puppet a persons mind and make them do as you say. Though in the opinion of the family patron and his esteemed wife, direct mind control should never be required. When you have absolute control over a persons body, there are more than enough tools to make them as subservient as they should be. Matters concerning the actual mind and soul of a person must be dealt with carefully. Murder:
A Xantelli can not kill a person outright or they will disintegrate and die themselves. This applies both on and off the island. Trying to override a personís mind using the power directly can result in death of the victim, if this happens, the Xantelli at fault also dies.Others of the Family:
It is usually not advisable to attempt manipulating another family. It may turn out that they are stronger than you.Character ClassesThe Xantelli:
You are one of the family members. Upon becoming of age you receive your powers and are responsible to help Boss Xantelli manage the family empire. Normal humans are like meat to you, you can bend their physical containers to your will. You must follow the code of the family and know the limits of their powers. All family members have black hair and violet eyes. Islander:
A native of the island. You work for the Xantelli family but are not a slave. The islanders make the bulk of the population. Some are indigenous while others are settlers from various nations. Many work at the port in the village while others are farmers and merchants. It is rumored that some islanders are humans changed into fantasy creatures by the early Xantelli rulers. They live and work amongst the forests. Islanders are rarely ever touched by transformation powers unless they rebel against the family or get caught helping agents.Tourist:
A normal human. You are a wealthy or maybe even a not so wealthy visitor to the island. Your money can buy you your most wildest wishes, just be careful what you wish for.Slave:
Welcome to Xantelli island. You may have been bought her against your will, gotten yourself stranded here, or came to the island with hostile intentions before being caught. Your fate is in the hands of the family now. Agent:
You are an agent coming to the island to investigate the situation. You are either there to observe and report or to open the way for further actions against the nefarious drug lord who rules the island with an iron fist. Previous invasions by U.S. special forces have ended in disaster with no survivors, and many in foreign government agencies are determined to find out why. Be careful, being caught means you become a slave.Rules:Be Descriptive:
This is a literate role play that will place heavy emphasis upon detailed descriptions of the most strange and unusual transformations. It will be plot heavy as well, with multiple plots and subplots. I expect readable posts of at least 200 words. If you donít feel you can handle that then this isnít the game for you. Be Versatile:
If you are only interested in one particular transformation such as gender change or becoming a futanari then this isnít for you. Itís not that those things canít be yummy, but they can not become the sole focus of the role play. Please do not limit your characters to one particular transformation unless you are tourist looking for that particular fix. Even in that case, try to keep an open mind to all sorts of things happening to your character.Limits:
This will be in the extreme section due to the possible graphic nature of some transformations and sex scenes. There will also be potential violence even though it is not the focus of the role-play. What there will not be is scat, urine, snuff, vore, or anything involving underage. While I ask for versatility in accepting the transformations, I also ask that you consider the preferences of your writing partner in any scene that may occur.Posting Rates & Character Replacement:
I want to keep this game moving so a story is free to develop. I also want it to last a long time. I will be attempting to post at least once a day or more for this endeavor. At the least, I will expect three posts a week or an explanation for absence. If I can work out an IC explanation for your characterís absence I will try to buy you a month. But I will not hold a character indefinitely. Any character in this game is considered an integral part of the game. If you disappear, then they must either be played by another or killed off.Character Creation & Character Play:
All characters must have profiles. Marco Xantelli and Maria Xantelli are characters of the GM but I may have as many characters as I please including NPCís. Players are limited to one major plot integral character but are allowed to have other characters that are not integral to the plot. Players are free to utilize minor NPCís to help advance the movement of their characters. All player characters must have a profile that includes the name, height, weight, age, detailed physical description, detailed personality description, and a brief history of their character. The physical and personality descriptions are very important. Be Civil:
If you have a dispute, discuss it civilly in the OOC or via PM.The GM decision is final in a dispute No OOC in the IC threads.Threads Upcoming in order of importance
OOC, Character Profiles, The Xantelli Manor, The Town, The Wilderness, The Brothel, Fantasy Village, The Real WorldQ & ADoes the character have to match the gender of the writer?:
No, I don't see any problem with writing the opposite gender as long as it can be done convincingly. A good writer needs to be able to create characters of both gender. I will actually be playing a male character for this game myself.Do I have to include a picture in my profile?:
No, this is optional. I'm going to try and break from my usual practice of using anime pictures and find real models to use for my own characters. But any kind of picture is acceptable if it fits our characters description. If you can't find a picture to match your description, you don't have to use one. Can the Xantelli's morph themselves?:
Mostly no, Marco and Maria are capable of changing themselves but their offspring are not. This is one way Marco keeps his family in line. Other members of the family who have higher level powers can change other members of the family, but it is generally considered taboo unless done by Marco or Maria.What is the limit of players?
This game is designed to create a setting in which numerous writers can participate as long as they maintain the rules of the game and write in a literate fashion that allows others to understand their posts. There is no limit on players, but in order to keep the game enjoyable there is an acceptance process run by the Game Master.What Kind of Character would suit me?
If you are dominant and can handle detailed and descriptive posts that are enjoyable to read than a Xantelli family member is probably your best character type. The family power allows one to dominate in the most personal way possible, through control of not just the victims circumstances, but also what the victim is in the physical sense. This is a very important class that requires commitment. Please don't make a family character if you don't plan to be a part of the story for the long term and please don't make a family character if you are not willing to have them played by someone else in the event of a prolonged and unexplained absence.
If you wish to be bent to the will of another and forced to submit then a slave is the character class for you. If you are very versatile about what can happen and wished to be surprised this is the perfect class for you. Slave can become integral to the story as sometimes a family member will have an eccentric relationship with their favorites. All slaves will begin fully human.
Tourists are for those who wish to experiment with specific transformations or have the capability to direct their experience by exerting some level of control. The reason they are on the island will direct their story. It is much easier to write a tourist out due to absence of their writer, easier than any other character type. Sometimes tourists might become slaves, islanders, or even defacto agents.
Islanders are for those who wish to start already transformed in some sense or for those who want to play a human character that lives on the island. An Islanders can be a mythical creature who farms the plantations, a twisted denizen of the labyrinth, a staff member in the Xantelli manor, or one of the towns folk who ply various trades. Islanders who get out of hand and break the laws of the family can end up becoming slaves very quickly.
Agents are for those who want a sense of danger and the risk of becoming a slave. Those who venture to the island must be willing to risk becoming a slave and all the consequences that go with it. Many agents have gone to the island hiding some form of weapon or identification, this is a quick way to be caught. A Xantelli may have to be within a certain range to change a person, but on the island, the Xantelli have eyes and resources beyond imagination. Even if a family member is not directly encountered there are many life threatening situations that can destroy an armed force invading the island. Invasions have been tried before, and all have failed.
If you want a bit of fighting and the ability to be a resistant slave that needs work to break this is the role for you. If you can handle cat and mouse games and the most ingenious psychological bending this might be for you. Can you fight the family under the most distressful circumstances?
