Current Positions

Here is a list of the currently open positions in each game. Positions marked with an asterisk (*) are RP-heavy positions, often asked to participate in most events and / or when new players enter the game. Players should only apply for these positions if they are willing to jump in as needed. Staff also reserves the right to substitute other characters or NPC’s in these positions for players who are on hiatus or taking a leave of absence from the game.

Positions marked with a double asterisk (**) are nefarious or antagonistic positions to play. The hope is to build role plays involving the antagonists and give players a chance to shape how game events go, doing nefarious things, and providing good clash as a basis for storylines.

As a final note, any position with Blazing Umbra can be filled with an AI, though some positions require being filled by an AI. The list is not meant to limit what roles an AI character can play.

Blazing Umbra

Military positions listed are Solas Tempus officers unless otherwise noted. Politicians are usually civilians and either appointed or elected officials.

Politician / Paramilitary / Resistance

The Strot Star System is ruled by the Senfu who have virtually enslaved the Heibo, a neighboring race. As such the Senfu Government keeps tight controls on the Heibo and there is a resistance. Paramilitary indicates, in this case, a military-like organization which is not tied to a government, they are freedom fighters or terrorists depending on the point of view. The Senfu government officials don’t necessarily need to be antagonistic, but will strongly believe in their system where the Heibo are a “worker class” and not only deserve to be there but are “well taken care of” by their Senfu masters.

Angelic Sins

Since Angelic Sins is a modern horror setting, there are many different kinds of characters. Political positions can be supernaturals so long as they can pass for human / normal. Most political positions are held by humans, vampires, or vampire servants of some kind. Law enforcement positions are most often held by humans, were-creatures, with some other smattering of supernatural figures here and there. Head Vampires tend to know everything going on in their territory. With other positions we flag those that are designed to be antagonistic, just because a position is not flagged to be such doesn’t mean it cannot be played as an antagonist in plot.

About Magic Users & Psionics

About magic users and psionics; they tend to leave each other alone for the most part. A local leader in either doesn’t mean they rule over those under them, but they will know / have contact with most of their fellows in the area and have some social authority. Psionics, especially, do not have a leadership of sorts, simply local leaders who keep tabs on things and try to moderate disputes / keep the peace.

About Fae / Fairies

The fae in the area are ruled by a King / Queen who need to be fairies. At the time of this writing there is virtually nothing written about the fairies and such within the game itself. While we borrow heavily from some properties such as World of Darkness, Vampire Chronicles, and the Mortal Instruments series for some aspects of the game, anyone playing a fairy or other fae in the game will have the opportunity and responsibility to build out what this looks like.

Embers of Soteria

Since this setting is a fantasy setting, the forms of government available roughly mirror what someone might have been able to encounter in the middle ages or renaissance times. Many of the political powers of the world have yet to be defined, none have been defined in detail. Players wishing to take on a powerful role will also have the ability to shape how the game plays and how the land their character presides over is developed, not only through in-game play but simply by defining the land itself out-of-game.

Monarchs vs Nobles

For the purposes of this game any monarch is someone who has become leader due to their blood lines. As it was in much of Europe and other parts of the world, the leadership was generally seen to be above the common folk and ordained by God. In the case of Embers of Soteria that God would be Onos, the central deity of the pantheon. Nobles have similar power and title through heredity but leaders who are noble (such as a President or Prime Minister) are not ordained by God to leadership but rather elected through some fashion. Players who take up such characters will have the opportunity to define how the land their character rules selects its leaders.

Rose Council

The Rose Council is a body of representatives seated at the Rose Palace and created to keep the Peace of Ages intact. They mediate disputes between different political bodies. They are a similar concept to that of the United Nations, under the Peace of Ages they have authority to act to stop aggression and prevent wars.

According to the Peace of Ages the Rose Council has authority over the Souls Templar, who act as a peacekeeping force. They are a paramilitary force operating outside of the jurisdiction of any single government but cannot act against any government without approval of the council.
