    Hello, just thought I'd throw out an idea and see if anyone liked it, this is my first RPG on this forum, but i've done plenty others on other forums. Ok, so basically its this.

    Since the begining of time, the planet Earth has been the center of a battle between the many terrors of the Abyss and mankind. The three documented wars tore the world apart, but were strangly ommited from history, the only recourds of them are in a church somewhere in Germany. But now, it is the year 2066, and the abominations of evil and the abyss have gatherd to them an army that will strike out and wage war against all humanity, and this time, no-one will be able to deny thier existance.

    But mankind is not hopeless, for a group has secretly been gathering strenght for several centuries, and that group is prepared to hunt down the daemons and the dead in order to bring peace to the world. That group, is the Inquistion.

    The stage is set for one of the greatest wars mankind has ever faced, will humans triumph? Or will earth be consumed by fire.

    So thats my idea, i have several others in mind and teams, so heres some more info.

    Teams:
    Inquistion
    Viceroy Elite: Leader and commander of the Inquistion.
    Inquisitor Lords: Elite hunters and military aides to the Viceroy
    Exorcist: Hunter who speacilizes in tracking and killing deamons
    Witch Hunter: Hunter who speacilizes in tracking and killing the cults and witches
    Vampire Slayer: Hunter who speacilizes in tracking and killing the undead
    Hunter: CSI type field agent who hunts down supernatural killings
    Tactical Squad: Elite squad of up to 50 trained commandos who aid in fighting large masses of evil

    The Abyss
    Vampires who control the dead, as well as Necromancers, Deamons and zombies, werewolves and other such evil creatures.

    S.P.A.D.E
    The U.S's response to the rise in unexplained deaths over the country. A group of speacily trianed operatives.

    Well, thats my idea, post and comment, i could use imput

    Sounds like an interesting idea. :) But I'll be honest here - I don't really have the time to join a new RPG right now, and I'm more interested in trying to finish the one I started (we're fairly close to finishing it too. ^^)

    Same as Liadan - this sounds like a great idea, but I don't think I'd have time to post regularly. I'll have to see, though - for now, my membership's still in the air.

    Thank you all who have shown interest, im just gonna lay out the frame work for this below

    Its 2066, so the technology is pretty much the same as it is now, just with some better weaponry and computers.

    The Inquisition is not an army, its an organization, but it still numbers in the high thousands. Each agent is highly trained to deal with most supernatural threats, but a hunter can chose to become an aprentice and later join the ranks of Exorcists, Witchhunters, and Vampire slayers.

    The Forces of evil are mostly composed of a hierchy that revolves around the most powerful summeners or daemons. For example, An army may be led by a Vampire, and under him may be a couple lesser vampires. He may have also summened several greater evil creatures to him, like Rawhead or a twilight beast, and zombies and flayed ones would form his army. As for daemons, they must be summoned, and usally in order to do so, several victems must be sacrificed. Also, in order for a daemon to come into the world, he must possess a host. An unwilling host is extremely hard to possess, but a willing host from a cult is simple. Once possesed, the deamon's powers are very limited since they are in a mortal body, but after several weeks the host will have mutated several powers and extra limbs (Wings, claws, horns, etc.) in order to give the daemon more fighting power. Very few daemons lead armies, they mostly keep the cult that summoned them and concentrate and killing or enslaving as many people as possible.

    S.P.A.D.E is the most advanced group with the latest in cutting edge technology. They are prepared to fight almost anything, but in the begining are unaware they are fighting a force from the Abyss. The fact that they are an organazation like the F.B.I means that thier numbers are the few.

    As for other groups, there are several mercanary armies and assassin guilds being recruited by both sides. If theres something else you can think of, pm me and ill decide if it fits in with the story.

    Well, i need a couple people to join, which might take a while, and yeah, you could probably have as many character as you could mantian. I was thinking about the whole Spainish Inquistion and than though, what if there was a real reason they created it, and than came up with the idea of a secret war.

    Four should be fine; #12 is going okay and it only has three active members...I guess it does depend on who joins though.

    Well, if four works than it works. I'll herby declare this rpg open, now, I have a couple o' questions. One, do I post it in Kingdom hall or the other one, and do i need any permission. Once I figure that one out, Ill start the thread and make a character profile subthread
