Some time before the birth of recorded history as we know it.

 
The lament Configuration, The Darkest Tear, Arakos Terribus Nosfortem, The Key. This smallbox of wooden craft has had many names over the vast passage of Time. From it's humble beginnings at it's inception in the royal courts of Babel. It was said to be Inspired by the ramblings of an insane architect & alchemist Lementas. Who dreamed of other worlds & dead gods that spoke to him of a key to resurrection of the dead.

Such Study was of course banned by the ruling of the higher circles of magic who forbid such dangerous pursuits. With good cause as this area of magic resurrection was well known to be the source of all necromancy. The dead must stay dead or the living will die a simplified yet highly regarded condition in the use of necromancy at the time.

All well & good, but Lamentas could not stop dreaming of the great beyond. In the end he was not just seeking the resurrection of one person, but sought complete control over the very getaway to death it's self. Lemantas wanted to create a back door to death, an escape hatch if you will to the realm beyond all others. It is with great sadness to the world & mankind that he succeeded beyond his wildest imagination in the creation of in a fashion a most deranged child's toy.

A small wooden puzzle box beautifully crafted that if opened correctly will create a gateway from this world to the next. If opened incorrectly well,,,,,,,,,, this is a reason the box is called the Lament Configuration as what was left of The scholar Lamentas when they found his body was beyond mans ability to configure the situation. His name is theorized to also be the original source of the word (Lament) =to weep over ones past mistakes

The tower of Babel fell from the sky & mankind's greatest kingdom shatters into a thousand nations all because of what was unleashed from that box on the day Lamentas finished it. Time & time again the Box has been opened. All down throughout the ages again & again with the same goal. Immortality for ever lasting life, bringing back the dead, or just to see something new.

The Lament Configuration has been found again during our time. below is a record made it's creator Lamentas copied many times down the ages it's accuracy though has never been confirmed . It is said that these pieces if rotated in the correct order, create portals to the user's wildest dreams & or most imaginative nightmares

The Key has been found the door awaits. Will you brave enough to choose to take that first step across the threshold ?

Currently recruiting open to all

With Regards to Open the Gate

Signs portents across the globe have been seen & taken account of by the worlds oldest living institutions. They all share the same message to those who can still read the ancient language which it has been said could be used read the future in the cry of a new born calf or the flight of a flock.

The Gate to hell has been opened! Whether or not this was the original intention of the ones responsible is beside the point. As they are now dead or wishing death was still possible for them their situation is currently unclear. The Lament Configuration has been used again to open a door this time in France at the Rubin Museum of sculpture. Where the creation of the Artist Rodin rests the one he spent his last years of life sculpting what was to considered by many his finest & greatest achievement.

The Key has been used to create a door way where once there was just a piece of Art Rodin's last art work before he died symbolizing the gates of hell

Has now become very real

Your mission in all of this is as part of a team in Opening the Gate & retrieving the key from the very deepest bowls of hell where traitors rest this information has come at a high cost to the soul & sanity of one of the world greatest physics sensitives who now has only a peaceful death to look-forward to

No Caption Provided

Should you fail in retrieving the key you must destroy it & the gate in order to save the world.

@Mark_XV: soon once i have the six main/alt names so far i have four including me(my alts Open the gates rpg) then once I have the six (it think a good number to keep things interesting ) the Rpg will go up when it's up, so i have time to do a little character research on the six . At the latest as things stand next week, the shortest it could be up the day after tomorrow

either way I will try my best as a newbie not to F&^% it up :)

@Mark_XV: you know whats the interesting part is picking up all the human idiosyncrasies each person has & trying to use that with each individual in a story that play's off those strengths with out coming at them diagonally unless it needs it.

In short give the characters what they want,

I think it was a great post, very interesting. There may be grammar mistakes,(i didn't check, just read through it) but i think if the writing is interesting enough, grammar doesn't matter too much, but that's a personal opinion.

@Redletter: Just keep things interactive. :D There comes a time when the creator of a RPG has to give free reign to the participants, and only gently push them in the right direction.
