Warning Let me pre-face this by saying this event is not canon and will not be taken forwards into any current or future plots on site, whatever happens within your threads will not have any impact elsewhere on site. Please post your threads in the alternate universe board only!
This event will run from the 1st of October to the 31st October.
Since the beginning, Wild Equines has had an afterlife, a source for good and a source for evil, providing balance to the chaos. Many led good lives, abundant with love and adventures. They follow the good book and their souls, as much as they know, are destined to Utopia. Some strive for this greatness, even giving up their lives to dedicate to the heavens. Others lead lives of debauchery, of sin. They are primed and prepared for their stint in the Underworld, ready to bloody their knees at the feet of the Devil and his Queen. This is common knowledge, so imagine your character’s surprise when they learn this is not the case…
Your character has died, be they good or evil, the cause of their death is determined by you. They awake to learn they have been judged by a God unknown to them, neither the Underworldians nor the Utopians are present. Rasa, Nehemiah, Xerxes and Teca are a foreign concept to this God. This God does not care about your character’s protestations but has judged their soul as dirty, unclean and has sentenced them to an eternity in Hell. This is not a merciful God, they have a vague horse like shape but are made entirely from black smoke, white spirals of mists where their eyes should be. This is not a familiar face.
Your character is sentenced to their damnation, but that damnation depends entirely on your character, their lived experiences, their beliefs. Their hell is personal to them and no two hells are the same. This Hell however, is escapable, if they can put their mind to it. Somewhere within this new existence, is a symbol of their former life, something small that they held dear, something that represents them. This is (for those Harry Potter fans out there) a Portkey, once they find this item, how they move forward is up to you – will they escape from this Hell? Will they remain in it? Is this merciless God just a trickster and they awake in Asphodel? Was it all just a horrible dream?
The three posts for your thread:
Your character’s death, the strange new lands, meeting the new God, being sentenced to Hell.
Your character’s arrival in this new Hell. How did they get there? What is this Hell like, why is it Hell to them? Who or what do they discover within this Hell?
Your character finding their item/symbol to take them out of this Hell, their deliberation around it, do they leave or remain? What happens then?
