    Brave New World is an RP based on the novel Lord of the Mysteries which plays in a Victorian-era world that has recently discovered a new continent named Rafasa that contains ways to gain supernatural powers.

    The players will be members of the Rafasa Liberation Movement (RLM), a “terrorist” organization on this new continent Rafasa that aims to establish a nation free of the influence of the large nations.

    In the game, players complete missions for the RLM, fighting against the large nations, other factions of the RLM, or supernatural monsters.

    Please do make sure to read the first posts of each thread before posting in them, as they'll explain how said thread is supposed to work.
    -------------------------------------------------------
    The setting:

    With steam-based technology on the rise, the nations of the world have discovered a new continent called Rafasa far across the ocean. With unclaimed land available in this conflict-riddled world, all eyes turn towards this new continent.

    In a bid to gain control over it, each nation sends its naval forces out, establishing colonies along the coast and fighting various skirmishes on the sea and Rafasa’s coast. With no one being a clear winner but resources and space abundant, the colonization efforts increase and even those wishing to gain independence sneak towards this new world.

    The discovery of strange flora and fauna which, in certain combinations, can grant supernatural powers finally turns this colonization into a mad frenzy as all nations focus most of their attention on Rafasa. But this new power might break the frail balance between the colonies, and the distanced nations may not be able to remain in control.

    You are one of the people that has come to this continent in hopes of creating a new nation free from the tyrannic yoke of the old nations and have joined the Rafasa Liberation Movement in order to fulfill this dream.

    Be it for wealth, power, freedom, or something else entirely - you are all fighting for the same goal, even though your methods are different.

    -------------------------------------------------------
    Pathways:

    A pathway corresponds to a series of potion formulas and the corresponding formulas that give access to supernatural and mystical powers. Once a person has drunk a potion, he is said to have become a Beyonder of that pathway.

    The characters can progress in power by consuming the next potion of the corresponding pathway once they have digested the previous one. A potion can be digested by acting according to certain rules hidden in the name of the potion.

    One can always act with the powers one has newly gained.

    Examples for already existing pathways are those used in the novel Lord of the Mysteries, which this RP is based on. Players are allowed to have their character be of any pathway that has complete information on the rituals and powers gained up to Sequence 4.

    One does not need to know the novel to play, however. Also, please keep in mind that the pathways, while starting at 9 and going down in LotM, start at 1 here and go up.

    Players can also create custom pathways and apply to have them in the game.

    This is an example of a custom pathway:
    Level 1: Rogue
    Abilities:
    Increased general physical prowess most notably in agility, dexterity, and flexibility. Instinct and perception sharpen. Awaken the power of Shadowflip, currently provide stealth in the dark.

    Acting:
    A mischievous knave, providing service at the grey area in the edge of law and morality. Is highly perceptive on human behavior.


    Level 2: Woodswraith
    Abilities:
    Same physical and mental boost. Gain the ability to imbue toxic properties onto weapons at hand.

    Acting:
    A rogue is bound to civilization. A woodswraith take a step further, able to survive - and even thrive - in untamed wilderness. Able to identify and raises edible and poisonous vegetations, brew herbal concoction, and creating makeshift tools from what's available.


    Level 3: Killer
    Abilities:
    Gain the power of Vertigo, to reverse the effect of gravity at will. Only affect self and anyone in direct touch. Shadowflip improve to allow clinging on vertical surfaces in the dark.

    Acting:
    The riskier the deal, the better the payout. Step into the unquestionably dark path of trading lives for coins, and for the thrill of the process. Gain knack for striking vital spots.


    Level 4: Assassin
    Abilities:
    Gain the power of Hardlight, creating transparent platforms anywhere within a short distance of the user. These platforms have fixed size and shape, and are brittle enough to be shattered with a strong blow.

    Acting:
    An assassin goes beyond a killer, slipping into the most airtight place to claim a life and leave unseen. Gain a sensitivity to split-second timing on when to strike.


    Level 5: Split Swordsman
    Abilities:
    Gain the power of Dart, enhancing one's footstep with short burst of speed as well as directional change without needing any tangible footing.

    A split swordsman have all the skill of an assassin that is polished for actual combat, weaving in and out unpredictably and finish the contract even after one is spotted by the target. Some people are just impossible to catch off-guard, after all.

    Acting:
    Beyond striking vitals, also foresee several sequential steps ahead in order to create and make use of openings instead of only waiting for one to present itself.


    Level 6: Spectre
    Abilities:
    Able to morph into a semi-intangible denizen of darkness. Shadowflip allows self and unresisting creatures to sink into any patch of darkness, as well as storing and controlling weapons inside. All of it gain a powerful toxic properties, and victims struck may be afflicted with Vertigo which lingered for a time even when contact is broken. In similar vein Dart may be applied to stored weapons, allowing them to suddenly accelerate and to some extent change trajectory. Hardlight may change properties from being blade-thin to turn into the jarringly visible and highly resilient Redshift barrier.

    Acting:
    To vanquish those beyond the mortal limit, one have to transcend the mortal limit. Continue the path by taking down demigods, by any means necessary. Gain a near-total perception of everything in significant radius especially if shrouded in shadows, and the capability to semi-autonomously control a large amount of stored armaments.

    -------------------------------------------------
    Rules and Guidelines:

    When creating your character, please mind the setting. The technological level of the world is in industrialization, with complex machines being new inventions.

    The Pathways have also only been discovered on this new continent, and have no presence on the old continents.
    -----------------------------------------
    Character Creation:

    Your character starts as a new recruit in the RLM that has just consumed the first potion of a pathway. Your characters can have done any job before, but are not allowed to have more than 30 pounds on them.

    Please also have your character be a normal person of the world, meaning no transmigration or things like that. In addition, having some sort of special connection to high-level existences is prohibited.

    Also, please follow this template when making your character:

    Name:
    Gender:
    Pathway:
    Age:
    Sequence: 1
    Digested: 0/70
    Money:
    Contribution: 0
    Looks or image
    Stuff you carry
    Stuff you own but don't carry
    Powers and abilities
    Who is your character, where did they come from


    Pathway means the pathway your character currently is part of. Sequence means the sequence of the pathway your character currently is at.

    Digestion is obtained by acting according to the potion’s rules. This can be done either in missions or in free RP, though details will follow in the corresponding threads.

    For the appearance, if you can provide an image, it's better than having it as a description. In case you do have an image, you can just put it at the start of the template.

    Inventory should have the stuff you're carrying with you on a day-to-day basis, while storage should have the stuff you leave in your inn room or house or the RLM storage.

    Powers is the summary and explanation of all powers the character has gained from their pathway.
    -----------------------------------------
    Currency:

    A few examples of prices and the worth of money. One pound is roughly worth as much as a gold coin.

    1 pound = 20 soli
    1 soli = 12 pence

    Rye Bread 9 pence /lbs
    Fresh Fish 5 pence
    Beef 5 pence /slice; 6 pence /lbs
    Rye Beer 1 pence /cup

    Rent a single room 3 soli 10 pence /week
    Rent a terrace house 12-16 soli /week (+ 5 pence furniture fee)
    Buy a terrace house 850 pounds

    Ship ticket 3 pounds

    Weekly food expense of a middle-class family 1 pound 5 soli
    Yearly Salary of a Laundress 10 pounds

    Revolver: 2.5 pounds
    -----------------------------------------

    -----------------------------------------
    That's the currently available information. Please do ask any questions you might have. I will gladly answer them and/or refer to places that will have the answers.

    You can apply custom pathways per PM or register your character already. The next threads will follow soon.

    Currently looking for staff members to help run the game.

    Name: Maya
    Gender: Female
    Pathway: Wanderer
    Age: 22
    Sequence: 1
    Digested: 0/70
    Money: 0
    Contribution: 0
    Her dark, often dirty hair and brown eyes, along with faintly freckled face marred with both imperfections and dirt in equal measure are both a blessing and a curse. With small, lean figure cultivated by years of malnourishment, she is quite incapable of attracting any attention, both wanted and unwanted, causing her to fade into the crowd unfortunately easily.

    That all is quite exacerbated by her choice of clothing. Dark colors with plenty of folds to hide in are her preferred choice. If there is a choice. Currently, she is robbed in dark brown cloak that has seen a fair bit of use. It is not dirty, but age marred it regardless.
    Modified flintlock pistol, stolen from dead body Maya found one morning. It is loaded with a single shot, which will most likely be its last thanks to quite extreme modifications done to the weapon. Bullet loaded inside is made from metal unknown to Maya and carries a name etched upon its surface. Which one? Maya doesn't know to read so that shall stay a mystery.
    Spare set of clothes stored under fallen oak. Someone probably stole them by now. If they didn't consider them unsalvageable rags.
    Misty step
    In the morning mist, there lie many dangers for unsuspecting wanderers.
    In decreased visibility settings, one can become nearly invisible. This doesn't apply to darkness.
    In all settings, wanderer's steps carry her further than they should with greater distance, least visible she is.
    Lying - Maya is middling liar. Under scrutiny, her act or lies get dismantled fairly easily, but most people never bother.
    Painting - Some level of skill is expected from workers painting the finished product. Maya has that but not much more. She is capable of producing low-value picture fairly quickly if painting tools are at hand.
    As an Orphan born in Skacia, Maya has seen the dark side of industrial revolution. Used as a painter in loom factory during her childhood, she haven't seen any of the money her labor should have brought her, only experiencing the suffering that work with unregulated colors inevitably brought. This lead to her developing many illnesses with each leaving one more mark on both her body and soul.

    After leaving the orphanage and gaining control of her fate, Maya realized she still had no control. Her leash just shifted from her custodian to whoever employed her at the moment, and with no skills other than painting, she was stuck doing the same accursed work again and again. It was then that she decided to be free.

    It took many years of saving whatever she made extra on top of what she needed to not die, to finaly have enough to travel to new land she heard so much over the years.

    New start? Just what she needed. And so, she is here, poorer than ever yet ready to be free.

    Hae-Eun the daughter of an Elindian Dancer called Nae Chung-Ae.
    Hae-Eun saw her mother hardship to raise her alone without a father figure and that taught Hae-Eun to work hard since young.
    Unfortunately, when she was only 10 years old her mother died in an accident, Hae-Eun had to scrape by on the streets while dealing with the turmoil inside of her heart.

    Fortunately, when she was almost 11 she was found by a merchant which came from another country called mister Strauss, he took Hae-Eun on his house as a servant and put her under the care and tutelage of his right hand, a man called Sarjey.
    In the Strauss household, Hae-Eun learned all kinds of skills from a maids duty till a bodyguard's skill under Sarjeys watch she learned how to deal with thugs, investigate, check out workers corruption and deal with all kind of underhanded and shade business a merchant had to deal with.

    When Hae-Eun was 19 years old the business rivals of mister Strauss started to attack him more directly, which lead him to assign Hae-Eun as a bodyguard for his wife and daughter, outside of Sarjey's watch Hae-Eun finally gained her autonomy and influence inside the household and it was dealing with some business for Miss Strauss that she discovered a surprising truth, It wasn't a coincidence that Mister Strauss had found her when her mother died, in fact, he had actively searched for her, because Hae-Eun was his bastard daughter.

    Without knowing if she should be glad that he took her in and helped her or if she should be angry that he let his mother struggle in poverty Hae-Eun continued to work in the Strauss household for two entire years before a big incident happened, the Elindian Official which used to have business with Mister Strauss used the merchant as a scapegoat for his corruption and criminal involvements which lead the Elindian government to declare the Strauss family as a spy from an enemy nation and execute the entire family.

    In the middle of the chaos, Hae-Eun managed to pick up the small daughter of the Strauss and some few items and flee from the scene.
    For the following years, Hae-Eun fled from place to place with Annabelle as a wanted criminal, unwilling to abandon her only living family even if it's only a half-sister Hae-Eun tried her best to protect and hide Annabelle, eventually leading her to get a beyonder potion and the opportunity to join the RLM

    Powers and abilities
    Annabelle Strauss, the daughter of the Strauss merchant household, had a safe and sheltered childhood, with few problems to worry about.
    Since young, she was tutored in many subjects which are essential for a daughter of a rich merchant and possibly the future wife of a noble, from etiquette classes to academic classes like geography, administration and politics, and even art.

    Alas, the unpredictable course of history didn't permit this small girl to enjoy this life for long when she was only nine years old catastrophe fell upon the Strauss House, her father declared as a spy, and her family condemned to death without even a trial.
    With the help of some loyal servants, she fled through a secret passage underneath the old manor.

    On the following years, Annabelle's life was hard and filled with peril, the initial group of servants slowly diminished as not only the searching intensified a bounty for their head was announced, with time the loyalty withered and some left other even tried to sell her out, fortunately, she had her trustful bodyguard miss Hae-Eun to protect her.

    Along these six years as a fugitive, Annabelle thought of giving up many times but how could she not notice the determination, the devotion, and even a hint of desperation on Hae-Eun's face when she looks at her, while Annabelle can't call herself as a genius she was always a bright girl often showing intelligence beyond her years, so while she doesn't know why she makes that face, Annabelle can clearly see that there is something more than simply loyalty hidden deep inside the woman who has protected her, and in turn this fact steeled her resolve to not only live but thrive and find peace for herself and for the only person she has in this world.

    The unique part in that case is going to be the power and power progression system. The setting itself has no direct connection to the setting of LotM.

    I have one goal PERFECTION and it will be mine I shall gain that which all others aim for this is my task passed down for generations! My family has been working in secret in Iha for generations to advance medical techniques but we have always been stonewalled at every turn so my father began saving up so that we could disappear from the country. However unfortunately he died before he could achieve the move and our work was burnt to the ground as someone had accused him of devilry.

    However I have made it to this world and progressed onto a pathway to achieve perfection in the arts of medicine and no one will stand in my way not even my relatives. No especially not my relatives. Someday I shall take over the theocracy and shatter it's beliefs to become the queen though before then I will need to make an army yes make an army and I'll be Empress Bile yes, YES!

    Can distinguish between different kinds of seeds.
    Can forecast weather.
    High physical strength.
    Dreamy young noble from a Lympis. Lissi is a very sheltered girl who ran away from home, wanting to explore the world. She set foot on a ship that took her to the mainland and arrived, penniless and clueless. Though she does not know too much about money, she knows that she loves sparkly gold accessories.

    Lympis is a small island with a culture like that of ancient Greece. There are many fruits on the island, such as grapes and coconuts. Most islanders make a living through farming grain. As a small, remote island, industrialization has not quite reached them, so their output is not very high; it's only enough to sustain the islanders' consumption. Overall, the island is pretty poor, though they do have a noble class and worker class.

    From the Trading Port city of Iha, Cooper went around taking any job he could in order to make enough money to enter the new world. Not knowing his father ever since he was born, he struggled to take care of his mother all throughout his childhood. Unfortunately, she passed away around the time he became eight. It was at this time that he decided to change his fate.

    It took him nearly 20 years, but he finally made his way to the new world in hopes of changing not only his fate, but the lives of the people he left back in Iha. It was only after coming to Rafasa that Cooper found out just how oppressed they truly were. An unassuming stranger brought him to the Rafasa Liberation Movement and gave him a chance to truly help. With his experience and tenacity, Cooper will do all he can to change this world and give his friends back in Iha a new place to call home.

    Blond, blue eyes and a tall stature, he was the perfect example of a person from ushei or iha descent. With a face that could be described as cold further enhanced by his emotionless eyes, most people would be intimidated to keep looking at him despite being somewhat handsome.
    duffle bag (extra clothes, money bag, identification papers, canteen, hunting knife) small locket
    N/A
    Door Opening - They can pass through obstacles and other solid objects.
    Spirit Vision – it allows the Beyonder to see the mental state of someone as well as their health standard
    Revolver – Charles has experienced on how to use a revolver
    Basic hand to hand combat- Charles can fight off drunks and ordinary people. But will lose when facing off a more trained opponent.
    Charles was born in Ushein in a rather ordinary family, his father worked as a policeman and his mother was a tailor who owned a small tailor shop along with an employee that was also their house. The only thing out of the ordinary about him would be that Charles was a bit emotionless, due to that he was isolated from most of his peers.
    But sadly, his parents passed away due to a carriage accident. Now with nothing left to lose he closed down his mother’s tailor shop sold all his inheritance and go on to this new world he keeps hearing about.

    Were she not suffering from amnesia, Illyana would have remembered her childhood. Firstborn daughter to a merchant family, the girl looks to be quiet and mild-mannered at first glances, but appearances are deceiving. It is unclear why she had left her family behind to journey to Rafasa, but with everything that's been going on, especially the sudden bout of amnesia, it's clear that there she wouldn't be offering a concise explanation anytime soon.

    Kotonoha on the other hand is a definite troublemaker. Selfish and fiery-tempered, she loves to jokingly pass herself off as Illyana's personal maid. Illya doesn't yet remember, but the girl accompanying her on her journey is more closely related than mere childhood friends. Now, it's just a matter of remembering.

    Or rather, the matter of wanting to remember.

    Alright, now that the relevant threads are all released, I can officially accept all of these registrations. I'd ask that you yourself write and think about how your character joined the Rafasa Liberation Movement. Keep in mind that the large nations see any Beyonder that is not directly part of their forces as a threat. This might serve as a motivation for your character.

    I'm afraid that this does not really fit the setting. And it seems like you are planning to use a custom pathway - could you please talk about the specific powers gained by it with me in a PM?
    Alright, this seems good to go for me. Try to clarify how your character became a Beyonder, and think about how exactly he would enter the Rafasa Liberation Movement.

    Anija comes from a merchant family and often travels with her parent since she was young.
    Her parents got together by a political marriage to gain a symbolic relation between their merchant families. You see, her mother's side comes from Iha and her father's side from Skacia Empire. As expected, their trade happened mostly between their countries.

    As Anija grows up, it became clear that her feature doesn't lean more on either of her parents but is a half-half mix of Iha's and Skacia's blood. With an appearance different from her peers, Anija drew wanted and unwanted attention from wherever she goes.
    As a child of two merchants, Anija learned to calculate, write, and somewhat reading people. Before she could do more, her life took an unexpected turn.

    At 12 years old, Anija was kidnapped and sold into slavery. Fortunately for her, she wasn't sent into the red-light district but ended up as a slave dancer of a traveling troop. Moving from one place to another, she was forced to train rigorously in her dancing skill, but later on, she also managed to take time to train acrobatic techniques on her own initiative. Seven years pass by and Anija's fame slowly grows big over time, her stage name "Flame" became known to many people, yet her real name was unknown to most.

    One day, Anija heard that she will be sold to a rich merchant, it was something she never heard from the troop master nor did she consented to. This case only happens to slaves of low value, those forgotten over time, or to those who never managed to earn a name for themselves despite their long service. The fact she will be sold against her will regardless whether she has gained a reputation, made her feel angry, betrayed, and humiliated.
    Even though she was only missing a few years to earn her freedom, yet at this moment, she will be sold to an unknown fate. Unwilling to give in, Anija decided enough was enough and escaped the day before she will be sold out.

    With everything of value she managed to gather over the years, she traveled a long distance towards her childhood home. What she didn't expect was how the rich merchant will start a huge searching operation for her, one on a scale simply too big to be worth her value.
    It wasn't until she had found her parent's home that she came to know why. As it turns out, her father was the same rich merchant who brought her that day. In order to find Anija, her father worked hard to widen his connection in order to find lead back to her, as a result, he became much more successful compared to before.

    Her mother instead remained nearby theirs home most of the time, she found out to be pregnant shortly after Anija's disappearance, but she also stayed near their house in case, her daughter was to return by herself.
    In the end, by the irony of fate Anija reunited with the same man she worked so hard to escape from, that man also happened to be her very own father...

    In the coming year, Anija did her best to catch up with her family, but it didn't take long for her to realize that trading wasn't something she was interested in anymore.

    From the very beginning, because of her mixed origin, Anija never felt connected to either country her parents came from. After the kidnapping accident, she felt that disconnection even stronger as she never could stay in one place for long.
    Anija knows she couldn't continue the peaceful life of a merchant unlike her younger days, but she was also unwilling to go back to be a simple dancer.
    In her dilemma on what she should do, Anija happened to hear about Rafasa Liberation Movement. If she becomes someone capable, she could make a home to people like her, who did not feel like they belong to the land they live in. If not, well... She will be granted a free travel fee to a recently discovered land, of course, that depends on the missions she will get plus she will get a mystery ability to start on her new life, one which she herself will decide on.
