After the Destruction of the world stone the world has had the forces that kept it seperate from the burning hells and the high heavens broken, world is now laid bare for both to see. The Burning hells once again under the banner of the Prime evils after they took control from Azmodan the lord of sin and Belial the lord of lies, the Three now angered from their defeat in Santuary have arison more powerful than ever before and now go to open war across the lands, evil followers and dark cults join them as well as many powerful allies that they had during the sin wars.
The Arch-angel Tyreal knows of the danger coming to the world he has worked so hard to secure from his bretheren in the high heavens and now works to bring forth the gift of the Nephilim within the human race, this ancient birthright that the Worldstone shut out of most of them is now free, and allows the people of santuary to eventually learn their powers, the Horadrim lead by a wise elder known as Deckard Cain are brought together by Tyreal and now help to bring mankind together and against the threat that now weighs down upon them all. The high heavens plan to help the Nephilim battle and hope to destroy the armies of the prime evils and then plan to destroy the Nephilim after battle while they are weak as to keep their hold over the world
Overall: This RP is based on events that could happen after the end of the last Diablo game, Diablo:Lord of Destruction, the armis of heaven and hell are now battleling over who shall rule all of creation and Santuary is in the middle of this war, the Ancient birthright of the human race can now be held by them and with their newfound power hope to protect their planet
Role: the role of a PC in this RP would be that of either one of the 3 sides or between them, perhaps to come across their own story as well as perhaps take part in the main story of the RP and live in the now war torn world of santcuary
Characters: a player can pick two characters, one of their own creation and one from the world of diablo, OR have two characters they have made themselves, ofcourse you dont have to have two, but you may not have more than 1 important character under your control
Important:These characters will be leaders or main beings within the RP, a player can pick one of these to play as, or none if they so wish
Diablo the lord of terror-
Baal Lord of destruction-
Mephisto lord of hatred-
Azmodan the lord of lies-
Belial the lord of sin-
Duriel the lord of pain-
Andarial the maiden of Anguish-
Fallen Angel Izual-
Warlord of Blood-
lilith, the daughter of Mephisto-
Arch-angel Tyreal- Darth Extecute
High heavens leaders- (there can be three, these are the most powerful angels within the high heavens, perhaps beyond even Tyreal, the names can be made up by the players
Inarius- (not truly part of the heavens, he is a powerful angel once in a high place among the heavens and now deems himself ruler of santuary and its people due to the fact he was one of the main builders of the world)
Horadrim and people of sanctuary
leaders- (maximum of 5, these are very powerful Nephilim)
Horadrim- (very powerful mages, there can be 4)
Next is player made characters races and such within the RP
Demons: these can be of a large variety, often they follow one of the 7 powers of hell which makes a large impression on their characteristics and behaviour, for example a demon of Diablo are usually the most intelligent and trick their enemies, although not usually the strongest, however some often can rival the minions of the other evils of hell, Baals are usually the most destructive hence the name, smaller beasts come in large numbers while larger ones are often the strongest minions of hell while mephisto has legions of undead
Undead: Undead are often udner the will of Mephisto or some sort of master who has brought life to a corpse, the Morlu are often the strongest of these, sometimes even greater than soome demons, especialy in numbers, under the eye of mephisto, these warriors are near impossible to stop, as their bodies reform and reshape even as they are destroyed.
Angels: powerful beings from heaven, often greater than most demons and undead however their numbers are far less and are often over run by demonic hordes, however the ability to fly as well as their great powers make them a strong race
Nephilim: these are those humans who have been told of the force growing within them, after being told they begin to understand the power and soon some can begin to become more powerful than the average angel or demon, able to succeed in many feats like weather control, blasts of magic, fire, crushing weaker enemies with but a thought, their power can become vast but most are not able of the greater feats but even the weaker ones are capable of fire blasts and shielding themselves and allies
Humans who have other gifts : this includes Mages who know many spells, Necromancers of Rathma who follow the teachings of Trag'oul the dragon of balance and capable of sumoning and controlling the dead, as well as destroying them when of high power. There are also skilled assasins, amazons, barbarians and other warriors among the human race who do not need the Nephilim gift for it disrupts their own prowess
Rules of the RP
usual rules apply, good language, long posts as apposed to one liners, NO Godmoding
Bio: (if its a made up character then fill this in with who they are and such, if its a Game character then please be accurate incase people join who dont know about them, maybe even have a link to some good info)
Equipmentnothing too super, if you know diablo weapons then you can pick a few but no super high elite items)
Abilities/powers: (abilities or magic powers and such)
Pic:desription of characters look: (if you have a Pic would be nice to use )
anything you want to add: (if you want to add something here that is not covered in the default sheet then its ok)

Bio: Diablo - Lord of Terror -
The youngest of the prime evils, Diablo specializes in terrorizing his enemies; fear is his greatest weapon..Diablo also has formidable attendants, brought to life by the pure terror from his victim's darkest nightmares..
after binding himself to a young prince in the land of Khanduras, daiblo sought to spread terror into the hearts of mortal men, and let hell spill onto the plain of the living..his dream was short lived, however, as three heroes took up the task of defeating the prime evil beneath the town of tristram, and even though they succeeded, each hero was scared mentally and psychologically forever..two of them turned to the side they fought aginst, becoming agents of the prime evils..the other, the warrior, was left a shell of his former self, and years later, his spirit finally cracked as diablo took control of the legendary hero..leaving tristram in flames, daiblo sought to realise a dream he had been formulating over milenia..
his first act of course was to free his brothers, mephisto, lord of hatred, and baal, lord of destruction..leaving a trail of demons in his wake, the lord of terror headed for the shining jewel city, lut golein and the sand beyond it, searching for the canyon of the magi, and the elusive temple of tal rasha, the horadric mage used to house the body of baal..diablo finds the temple, and with the help of his traveling companion, marius, frees baal..however, the archangel tyreal was there to try and stop the two prime evils..he wasnt successful, and tal rasha, or what was left of him, trapped tyreal in the temple..
the next thing the prime evils had to do was to free the last of the brothers, mephisto..they travelled across the ocean and through the massive city of kurast, leaving the place to be overrun by the now warped jungle and its demonic inhabitants..the prime evils entered the prison of mephisto, and the three of them used their combined power to open a portal to hell...this was when diablo fully manifested as his true form..shrugging off the rags of the warrior he once inhabited, diablo entered the hell and prepared to unleash its forces onto the mortal plane..
this was when as many as 7 new heroes arrived to kill diablo, hopefully for the last time..they had killed all of the demon on earth, even managing to kill mephisto, and take the source of his imprisonment, a legendary soulstone..the heroes used an angelic outpost to enter hell and destroy mephistos soul stone, then proceeded to kill diablo..they finally overthrew the lord of terror, and destroyed the soulstone he possessed..
tal rasha was still missing however...baal tacked down marius, the companion of diablo/warrior..marius had baals soulstone, and had hidden it, along with himself, in an insane asylum...baal, disguising himself as tyreal, convinced marius to give the soul stone to him..when the soul stone was his, baal revealed himself and killed marius..he left, leaving the asylum to burn..
Abilities/powers: incredible strength and speed, powerful control over fire and lightning..can run on all fours when he needs to..can summon demons, and create nightmare creatures from a mortals fear..
Bio: Morgan, a simple blacksmith in the town of Borough in the west had never heard of the battles and evils that had been going on in the world, it was not until the destruction of the worldstone had he felt the incredible quake, the sky darkening darker than he had ever seen, dark being materialising in his village, ripping down his brother before him. The Worldstone however with its destruction let loose the power within humanity, and Morgan and a few others within the town took up arms against shadowy beasts, within his Madness and rage he was also amazed as well as confused, every slash of his blade burst forth with energies and throwing forth elemental magics that he had only heard rumours of from the mage clans.
a 3 years later, far from his old town, in the town of Curras, drinking down ale and sharing stories of his adventures since he set off those 3 years ago, taking items and treasures from Demonic camps and magic artifacts, he has become an adventuror, looking to join the battle against the Three prime evils and join with the Horadrim and his new kind, the Nephilim, that he now found out, was the special gift within him.
Equipment: Demonhide armour socketed with various gems such as a Demon skull he found fit into a strange socket in the armour as well as a Amethyst, under this he has a light chainmail mesh, using this as well as a Magic Basinet and Scutum. His weapon however was identified by a sage as the Headstriker, a powerful blade, he found it among a demonic camp. on his Feet he wears simple heavy bracers and on his feet battle boots, he attached 2 greater and 6 minor healing potions around his waist on a Sharkskin belt he bought off a trader in a far off town in the east.
Abilities/powers: No magical prowess per say, not that is under control, his Nephilim powers allow him to perform small feats of power such as incredible strength, calling forth blasts of will throwing opponents over as well as enchanting his weapon with magic powers beyond its own but these dont happen as often, although his strength is beyond a normal man and being a Blacksmith he can skillfully add sockets to items and repair his and his allies armour on the battlefield.
Pic:desription of characters look: a little bit like this, only ofcourse the armour is a normal silver and he has the belt, also he doesnt have open toes on his boots and his arms are covered with a light chain mail underneath.
Bio: Tyrael comes from the High Heavens and serves "The Light", the forces of good in the Diablo universe. It is unknown who his superiors are; no gods or higher angels are ever named. Judging from Deckard Cain's description, Tyrael seems to be regarded as something of a rogue by the forces of Heaven, as he seems to intervene in the affairs of mankind more frequently than is considered appropriate. This would seem to explain Tyrael's greater sociability, compared to Hadriel, as well as his willingness to single-handedly engage one of the Prime Evils directly.
Equipment: The Archangel carries equipment blessed with the light. It enchants his way of fighting greatly. His powerful armor and divine sword gives him abilities far beyond the mortal man.
Abilities/powers: His wings allow him to fly. He possess the power of the light and masters an ancient combat system, known by few and taught by the High Heaven divines. Even though his magical powers are limited, underestimating him would be the last thing you would ever do in a fight.
