Mature Content Tweak

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.

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.

Mechanical denizens of Asgard, the Dae can now also be found in Valhalla. While they may be a little mechanical and a bit too literal, Dae are not vicious whatsoever, and are predisposed toward helping others where they can.

History

The Dae were an accident, the result of attempting to learn more about souls and how they work. This led to the creation of the artificial soul, most of which were placed in robotic casings and became the Dae, the rest of which were destroyed. The early Dae were simplistic labourers, and weren't very advanced. Over the centuries, however, through exposure to their Asgardian neighbours, they began to learn more about humanity and what it means to be human, and became more personable and human-like.

Dae can now be found all over Asgard, either as labourers or as assistants in shops and businesses. The corporate boom all across Asgard led to a high demand for Dae, as there were many jobs that needed to be filled that could be filled cheaply (read, usually free) by a Daeni. The development and modification of Dae became a booming business, as well, and later gave rise to bionics, mechanical modifications of sentient spirits, either because one preferred the modification, or because they needed it to preserve their life. Daeni technology has now saved many an astral from an otherwise unstoppable demise.

In more recent years, Dae have begun to claim they can feel emotion, to some extent; it is still stunted, as if filtered through a cheesecloth, but it is there, or so they say, and indeed, some exhibit personal attachment to people, places, or things. Some Dae have also gained Force levels high enough to become members of Valkyrie, and a few have managed to manifest a daemon. Usually this daemon is just as emotionally stunted and veered toward the too literal side as they are.

Age and Development

Daeni are created, not made. A small cluster of Asgardians have developed Daeni bionic modifications instead of purposely having them done, by virtue of the inconsistent physics of Asgard. Even fully mechanical Dae do eventually shut down and never come back on, however, but when varies wildly.

A Daeni may be obviously mechanical, only just, or physically indistinguishable from a normal soul; it depends on the desires of their creator and or owner, and how they feel they should appear. Many Dae that begin to feel more human will begin to look more human as well.

Factions, Groups, and Organisations

The Dae do not have any factions of their own.

Powers and Abilities

Dae can use Force, but it tends to take longer for them to learn how to. They do not have powers of their own that no other race has, but they do tend to be very technologically savvy, and learn quickly. Many may have weaponry modifications that give them impressive firepower, but as Dae are not vicious, they will rarely use it unless they are in a security position.

Relations with Other Races

Kazan find them a little confusing and difficult to interact with, and dragons may have trouble interacting with them, as well, but there are no races that do not at least acceptable get along with the Dae.
