Mature content now depends entirely on the birth date listed in your profile. It will automatically decide if you're above 18 and start displaying mature threads to you. These are highlighted yellow, so you can still avoid them if you'd rather.
New Year, New Theme!
January 5, 2018
Wow it's weird to be typing 2018... anyway, we have a new theme with some fancy stuff, but some of it is still broken. Also the email field for guests appears again, I'll fix it eventually.
Introducing Battle Suite 4.0 RC2
October 24, 2017
We now have a working version of an early write-up of Battle Suite 4.0 available for use. This system completely automates tabletop functions, and is very user-friendly.

Embers // Afterlife Fantasy

Welcome to the first day of your new life. Embers is an afterlife fantasy cyberpunk RPG, running since 2006, first under the name War Chain, and then under the name Tamashii no Chikai, originally as a Bleach RP. Some Bleach influence still remains, but it is all presented differently and features new elements. The recent 2016 reboot under the name Embers follows a very similar standard and focus that War Chain and Tamashii no Chikai did, and we hope Embers will grow into its own free of its fandom ties. Here's to 157,000 more posts!
Mature themes, half the board is gay. Not recommended for bigots or individuals under 16 years of age. You must be 18 or older to gain access to the mature boards.

For all that Cyprian ran a rather tight ship, sometimes things slipped through the cracks. That was, of course, what they were for, making sure nothing important got lost, because if things were going to be lost, at least they should be less important things. It was probably a strange way of looking at it, but, they were all still human, somewhere in them, and Mameha knew better, by now, than to expect perfection. Certainly, none of them were ever really going to achieve a such thing, and, at times, she had to wonder if perfection was a thing that truly existed, or just another one of those abstract human concepts. Most likely, it was the latter, if she had to guess, another one of those abstract human concepts that no one would ever really have true experience with. It wasn't as if Mameha wanted to have any form of experience with it. Perfection seemed rather quite dull, if she were being honest. She wasn't missing out on anything, most likely.

Once in a while, inevitably, her thoughts meandered back to her kids. Much of the time, they only strayed momentarily, long enough, that she remembered the sting of losing Kaiou all over again. Some part of her felt a little slighted. She lost one, and then lost the other right behind him, and yet Iname still breathed. It would've been better, on some odd, morbid level, if Iname had followed his brother. One never did very well without the other, when it came to twins. She would know. Ah, that was a long time ago, now. When was the last time she'd thought about him? Hmm, probably in far too long, really. She lived for them both, now, and yet could hardly be bothered to remember him, most days. It still hurt. Probably, it always would. Ikurou undoubtedly took a part of Mameha with him, when he died, and she had no one to blame for the misfortune. That was just how life had gone, for them.

Yet, even in having that blame to place, it wouldn't fix anything. Unfortunately, some part of Mameha thought that Iname had gotten caught up in deciding where to place that blame. It belonged with Tetsuya, it belonged with Second Division, it belonged with the Eagles, it belonged with Iname himself, but in the end, it wouldn't bring Kaiou back. It wouldn't even make it feel like losing Kaiou was justified, somehow, and she knew it, probably better than Iname thought. He and his brother never knew about Ikurou. Mameha never had the chance to mention him, and bringing him up so soon after losing Kaiou, it seemed a bit like a slap in the face, didn't it? Mameha hardly talked about herself, or her family; she let Shigeru do all that, if he chose to, but it seemed he'd never mentioned Ikurou, either. It was probably for the best. It seemed, almost, like gloating, easy to take wrong, easy to balk at. It didn't matter, anyway, because Iname was gone just as much as Kaiou was, in many ways. Sure, he was around. They were in the same division, and of course, they came across one another, often-times, but nothing was the same. Maybe it'd never really be again, even if, by some odd miracle, they started talking outside of work, again.

It was almost like an endless winter. Mameha wanted to tell him, herself, that it'd melt, someday. That the ice would let go of the branches, and they'd flower again as spring finally came back. But it'd never really be the same spring. That was what Kaiou had taken with him. He'd taken spring. At least, that was what it felt like, because the beautiful blossoms on the trees never were the same again. Just like they hadn't been when Ikurou left.

Ah, speaking of him, she noticed his Force signature nearby. Naturally, Mameha recognised it. It was much like her own, albeit it had a streak of Seiji, and a tiny smidgen of what she thought might be Shigeru's. She'd never mentioned any of that, not to him. It seemed an inane thing to mention, and potentially hurtful, at least in some way. She didn't expect much; generally, Iname didn't stay very long, even if he did decide to remain for some time, and it was silly to hope for it to change someday. No, Iname had chosen his path. Even if she didn't think it was the right one, he had to decide that, for himself. Instead of attempting to engage him in conversation, she sat up in her chair, slightly, and waved a bit, a small, warm smile on her face. He'd stay, or wouldn't, and then the other spring would be gone again, too, like always it was.

Steady, level-headed, and composed, Mameha has an air of sophistication that some can find intimidating. This quality is levelled out a good deal by her warm maternal streak. Mameha is gentle, but compassionate and patient, making her get along with almost anyone. Nothing ruffles her proverbial feathers, and even in the most extreme crises, she keeps her cool and if necessary, will take the reigns until the situation has resolved itself. Though occasionally deeply emotional, she is very skilled at figuring out when is a good time to show these emotions, and can masterfully set them aside and deal with the present situation until she can handle them safely. To some, she seems perhaps too detached, but she has never reached a dangerous level of emotional avoidance.

In her dealings with others, she is very observant, intuitive, and polite. It's an almost business-like handling of social situations, but her natural warmth and compassion still manages to temper the edges somewhat. Mameha never raises her voice, and while her wording may be a little bit of a jab, it is still polite and not harsh. She earns her respect through personal merit, instead of fear-mongering, making her fairly decent at managing groups of people and taking on leadership roles. While she is in a fairly high social position, and a relatively important position in the Goteijusantai, she doesn't seem to desire being important, nor have any real personal ambition. She does have them, of course, but they're more family-oriented goals than social influence oriented, and despite being quite content to lead, she's just as happy not leading.

Mameha is more of a listener than a talker, and many find her a decent person to vent to. She's good at advice, because she's empathetic enough to understand situations people are in, but she's still impartial and unbiased enough to offer outside advice that isn't marred by being invested in the outcome. She finds subtle, somewhat barely noticeable ways of making her friends and loved ones feel important and valued, but some can miss it due to the lack of obviousness. She doesn't talk about herself easily, but she's always willing to be a shoulder for someone else to lean on.

Friends
She's very reserved and keeps to herself. It's hard to imagine she has friends, but I'm sure she has one or two somewhere. Most Nibantai members completely stop making friends, or if they do, they're careful to keep those relationships superficial and as distant as possible, you know, just in case. Mameha does exactly the opposite. She forms very strong, lasting bonds with others, because in her mind, maybe she can make a difference, maybe she can't and she'll still end up fighting you someday -- but she's going to throw herself headlong into her friendships while they're there. Not doing so never stops the sting of betrayal later, anyway, so you may as well.

But don't mistake. She may love you, and she may love you a lot, but if you prove to be a problem, she will still end you. Perhaps, because she loves you, and considers you a personal responsibility, perhaps more because she just wants to make sure it's at least quick and as painless as she can make it. The point is, work is work. Life is life. And sometimes, work wins.

Enemies
I'm sure she has one or two, but they come and go. It's a normal thing for Nibantai, and by this point, Mameha has stopped worrying about it. Oh well.

Lovers
Lol.
