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.

Soul fighters are humans that gained the ability to manipulate and temporarily absorb loose Force in the atmosphere to use as a weapon.

History

Originally the soul fighters were much like the seers, in that all they were capable of was watching the fight between seekers and Valkyrie. However, before Valkyrie's transportation methods improved, the humans had lost enough loved ones to seeker attacks that they began to try learning to control what Force they did have.

They only sort of learned to do this, but stumbled into the ability to control and manipulate the Force around them. Soon they developed natural-material receptacles, such as gemstones and woods, that would hold the Force they need within it until such time as they need it, and then absorb more of it around them when they ran out in battle.

The soul fighters then banded together to help protect living humans from seekers.

Powers and Abilities

Soul fighters can use sorcery to some extent, but only some. They store loose Force, or their own, into a receptacle called an esper, to be stored and used later when they need to. They also will draw more atmospheric Force into their esper when its stores run out for use in combat.

Espers take many forms, and are usually in the shape of something easy to miss and normal for humans to see, such as cell phone charms, pins, hair barrettes, ribbons, jewellery, belt buckles, cuff links, and so on. These espers need to be made of natural materials, either a wood, or a gemstone, or both, in order to effectively store energy (metals are too dense and will not hold Force as well). The darker the wood or the gemstone, the more Force it can contain at once, and the more effective it is at transferring Force from the atmosphere to itself, and then from itself to its user.

Relations with Other Races

Valhalir and kashi will occasionally work alongside soul fighters in times of trouble. Some soul fighters have lingering, ingrained resentment of Valkyrie, but by now, most of it's forgotten. Kazan will tend to avoid soul fighters, as they are still living and smell like death, and the kazan dislike that scent, finding it unnerving.
