season ,
After a long winter, some portions of the planet still cling stubbornly to the frigid temperatures and wet snow. In most others, however, new flowers begin to bud and the smell of rain undercuts the scent of freshly cut grass. Watch out for spontaneous rain showers and possessive honey bees.

    TERMINOLOGY

    Post by SYSTEM on Tue Jul 03, 2012 1:17 am



    v.ii. terminology



    “to consecrate or sanctify by a religious rite; make or pronounce holy”. Blessing may only be done by Malakihm when a human has reached full positive karma (+10 ₰). When a Malakh blesses a human, said human willingly sheds their mortality for immortality as a divine creature under the constant guidance of the Malakh who blessed them until they have reached the “age of divinity”, or one month, graduating them to a fully-fledged Malakh. Malakh who were previously Human—having been blessed—are considered Second Generation Immortals.




    First Generation Immortals are those Malakihm and Deimos who are “naturally born,” or, rather, created as they were. These creatures are truly creatures, having never been human. As sterile beings, they are incapable ot reproduction as a human would know it, but they are at the same time capable of creating Second Generation Immortals via hexing or blessing. For more information regarding the Malakihm and Deimos and their specific abilities, see [LINK].

    * First Generation Immortals must be pre-approved by Administration.




    “the body of specialized procedures and methods used in any specific field so as to effect a desired result; a skill pertaining to battle.” Ranging from common, every day techniques (Rank F) to very rare and difficult to master techniques (Rank S), Gestalts are merely the actions which, at some cost of mana, living creatures in Sheol may use to cause damage or other effects during battle. The amount of mana, or energy, it takes to perform a Gestalt is dependent upon its difficulty, which corresponds to its rank; likewise, the damage a Gestalt may inflict, if any, relates to its rank. Gestalts are tagged by the categories to which they belong, including, but not limited to: offensive, defensive, long-range, close-range, multi-range, neutral, counter, supplementary, basic, elemental, projectile, lethal. Most Gestalts are considered “street legal,” belonging to a master skill set to which all Sheol citizens of any race have access without having to pay. However, by paying a fine of silver, citizens are able to input an appeal for purchasing a permit to create a custom Gestalt. The price and rank of custom Gestalts increases with the number purchased; for more information, refer [LINK].




    “an evil that has been invoked upon one; (v.) the act of causing such an evil” Hexing may only be done by Deimos when a human has reached full negative karma (-10 ₰). When a Deimon hexes a human, said human must forfeit their tainted mortality for a demonic immortaility promised to them at the cost of their soul. They are also guided by their superior until they have aged one month as a fully-fledged Deimon. Deimos who were previously Human—having been hexed—are considered Second Generation Immortals.




    “the good or bad emanations felt to be generated by someone or something” Accumulated by the demonstration of “good” or admirable acts (positive karma) or by the demonstration of “bad” or deplorable acts (negative karma), Karma is used by Deimos and Malakihm to manipulate the fate of humans in Sheol. All residents of Sheol begin with zero karma on a scale of negative ten to positive ten; some extraordinary cases begin their secondary lives with a small accumulation of karma, but never more than two points in any direction. Every good act begets one positive karma and every bad act begets one negative karma—these points are capable of cancelling each other out. While humans are unaware of their plight in this tug of war for their souls, at full positive karma (+10 ₰), a human may be blessed by a Malakh, while at full negative karma (-10 ₰), a human may be hexed by a Deimon, or else have their soul devoured and thus lose their life.




    A human who has given up his or her soul and mortality in order to become a Malakh or Deimon. For more on the process of becoming a Second Generation Immortal, reference the entries on blessing and hexing. More information may be found on the races here [LINK].



    The currency of Sheol, signified by the symbol §. Silver is good for anything from purchasing Gestalts to making both in and out of character purchases. Ironically, silver has nothing to do with a character’s social standing and as a result cannot raise or lower status. Rather, silver is determined by the number of posts made.




    “a label or strip, to identify, classify, etc.” As mentioned in their entry, each Gestalt will be tagged with one or more tags, a comprehensive list of which may be found on the page detailing Anamensis’ Gestalt Project. Tags are labels for Gestalts which give a brief overview of a Gestalt’s type, range, difficulty or lethality, and any miscellaneous categories it may belong to.




    Though commonly used to describe empty or useless vacuums of darkness, the term has come to have a rather different meaning in Sheol. While most humans who arrive here have no particular abilities except for some student and academy faculty elementalists, there are those exceedingly rare individuals who, on some whim of fate (1), have acquired a special ability of sorts. These abilities are what the denizens of Sheol, from poor Rozens to rich Wisterian, call Voids. However, some truth exists to the original definition of the term, for such great powers often have great downsides. The presence of a Void harnesses most all of a being’s natural energy, and, for this reason, will generally nullify any chance of elemental control; Voids are literal vacuums for living energy, regardless of their output. Moreover, those Voids often come with such downsides that they leave the users with the same empty darkness of their namesakes in their hearts. Many question whether a Void is a gift or a curse.



    (1) Voids are, for out-of-character clarification, gifted at random by Administration. Unless you have received permission to create a first generation immortal, there is a chance you will not acquire a Void, and if you do it will be one that an Administrator creates rather than a custom made Void.
