Shin Megami Tensei: Oni no Koseki
No one remembers that day. That same morning, at the same time, across the world, they all had the same dream. A mysterious sun appeared in the sky, it was black and yet radiated heat and light like any normal sun. It spoke, but it spoke to each individual. It spoke to the shadows in their heart and tried to aid in humanities rebirth as well. There were those that day who died peacefully in their sleep and then there were others who were the one who survived.
As they lay dying in their dreams staring into the black sun, he appeared to them. A man with no distinct details, he was so abnormal that he simply became plain and forgettable. He spoke something in the deads ears, but they cannot be remembered. He stroked the dead peacefully, as their guardians. He spoke of your rebirth, but not as a human. But that of a demon.
This was a dream after all. The dead didn't surely think they would die or that they would become a demon. He gifted the few dead with a Magatama and they woke up in their bedrooms. The dead rose from their slumber. When the reborn looked out their windows they saw their world destroyed. A bright and yet black sun lay overhead. Radiating heat and light like any normal sun. The words whispered in their ears was remembered and forgotten.
Kagutsuchi has awakened again, demons now live where humans once walked. Individuals from across the human world, have either died in their sleep and then there are the few chosen to be awakened as demons in this world. Given a mysterious power of Magatama.
They do not yet know it yet, but they will play a bigger role on the rebirth of the demon world. For better or worse. For now they are puppets on the string of fate, trying to survive in this new world.
Players will be playing one of the individuals given Magatama to reborn as demons in this world. The game starts off slow, a little exploration of the world and explaination of all the pieces and parts.
Further the players will be split into three alignments, nuetral, chaos, or law. These are affected by the actions they take. As there will be many parts of this world, do you want to bring back the human race, or do you want to bring the end to the world and aid the demons into a new world.
Name: [Name of your character]
Age: [the age of your character]
Gender: [The gender of your character]
Alignment: [Everyone starts off with Nuetral alignment. The two others ,depending on your actions in each Act, Mission, and allying Demon Partner, are Chaos and Law]
Magatama:[I will provide a list of starter magatama]
Weapon: [what weapon are you carrying]
Skills: [What abilities do you have?]
Demon Partner: [This is one of those sections you really have to keep an eye on. Everyone will have 5 demon slots in their demon comp and are allowed to carry 5 demons. Your Demon Partner is the Demon Summoned to walk beside you. You will have a choice between three starter demons to aid you on your journey. Currently you do not start with a demon partner]
Appearance: [The appearance of your character. Picture and a paragraph would be nice.]
Personality: [No one liners or short sentences. I really would like to get a sense of who this individual is. There is another way to look at character development, most who write personality want to develop who their character is. But you can also do the reverse as well, write something concrete and the character develops away from that as you play the game evolving from the original]
History: [I know this says history, however, I want the character's histories to be revealed later in game as part of character connection and development. In this case simply described the dream and what Kagutsuchi spoke to you about.]
Theme Song: [completely optional]
List of Magatama You May Start Off With
What is Magatama?
Magatama is the very essence of a demon, and as such it is capable of turning a normal human into a demon.
How is abilities and Magatama work in this game?
After every mission you do I will give you 1 point, larger boss missions you will get 3 points. These points you will collect and use them to buy the abilities of the Magatama and abilities you get without Magatama.
how do I require other Magatama?
Magatama will be for sale in game for Macca [in game world money] and will also be reworded for favorable outcomes during boss fights. Magatama boss rewards will be rolled for so there is no unfair play.

A bakeneko is, in Japanese folklore, a cat with supernatural abilities akin to those of the fox or raccoon dog. A cat may become a bakeneko in a number of ways: it may reach a certain age, be kept for a certain number of years, grow to a certain size, or be allowed to keep a long tail. In the last case, the tail forks in two and the bakeneko is then called a nekomata. This superstition may have some connection to the breeding of the Japanese Bobtail.

Demon Partner: Queen Mab
You would think he'd be easy to remember, but looking at him was like looking into a dream. Every time you blinked you forgot a piece of his details. And then would remember them as you looked directly at him. His hair was brown and tawny, and then you forgot it. His skin was fair, olive, and pale, but you forgot it. He wore a tattered scarf wrapped around his neck, and then you forgot it. He was handsome a man you should never forgot and then you forgot him. He wore blue jeans and then you forgot that, he wore worn down leather pants and you forgot that as well.
He is a dream, his words are forgettable and yet they are so vital and important. He is the mysterious man who provides and aids help. Aloof and mysterious and only appearing when you need him. He seems to greatly care about the state of the world, but doesn't seem to benefit it in any way. He provides the tool of forging a fate for the human race, but its unclear on who's side he truly is on. He keeps his visits and his conversations short, afraid he may become more connected in the web than what he had originally planned. He is afraid to get close to the world that he is trying to guide somewhere.
I came from the stars, though I am not an angel. The humans have such funny words. I came from Kagutsuchi , somewhere far, very far that even I do not know. It is the will of the two sides of Kagutsuchi for light and darkness. It is what guides me, what I do is what it wills. However, there are those who came just as far who are on the other side of Kagutsuchi. They do as they are told and said. Our great goddess is so fickle and so hard to predict in her ways. We have become instruments of fate. We always were. We were created out of nothing, but mud and light.
I grow fond of this world and its creatures. But not fond enough to stop what is already written in stone. I will follow my fate because I was born to follow fate. Made of nothing, but mud and power.
