What if death isn't exactly what you thought? Oh, how we all planned on something black and white! The virtuous planned on going to fluffy clouds where angels play harps and you live happily. The darker types expected to burn in flames and be tortured for all eternity. That's what we all believed, right?
Well, we were wrong.
Welcome to Midian
. A world within a world. Another world on Earth. Nestled quaintly under a graveyard, Midian is home to the restless, the condemned, those who cannot touch light and are shunned by society. Midian is a world of the walking dead.
The people of Midian are dead and alive, virtually zombies with their own minds. Covered in scars of the past, Midians are cursed to live beneath the soil of the Good Earth and stricken by everlasting darkness. Despite being barbaric in nature, Midian is not without governing laws. Even in the Darkness, Virtue is what one must live by.
There is but one rule: there is no going up. You may traipse about in the graveyard, but you may not go past it's massive gates of steel and spikes. Never, ever. Beyond those gates are where the Daywalkers roam and you are no longer of their kind.
Midian is full of fantastical creatures. flowers with faces
, birds with human bodies
, demon dogs
, hybrid humans
, and creatures made of flesh
and those made only of bone
, all which have been here long before those who have died. Some are kind, some are cruel, some are neither here nor there. Some are humanoid
and others are spirits of those long dead
. Some speak, some are mute. It's up to you to find out.
The landscape is everything from your imagination. There are massive treehouses
, hills of monstrous proportions
, trees born of beasts
and trees of skulls
. In the southernmost edge of the city there is a dingy, dirty staircase
that leads to the cemetery.
Welcome to Midian. You are now one of the Nightbreed.&JOINING + MEMBER INFOTAKEN CHARACTERS
