Fill our Encyclopedia



With much excitement, I am please to unveil the first new feature that will be implemented on the new layout: our encyclopedia! This will be extended lore created by the members themselves that will help add canon information to the City and breathe life into it. The Encyclopedia will contain information (written by all of you!) about the City that others can include within their posts. This includes: famous celebrities, well-known corporations and businesses, and more! The only requirement is that they are connected someway to a character onsite, such as through their ownership, their history, etc. We don't want random ideas; we want everything to be populated through character creation! Confused? Ask away for clarification!

Anyone can add to the encyclopedia. You don't need to have been a member for a certain amount of time, or made x amount of posts, etc. Once your first character is accepted and brought onto the site, you are free to add at will! However, remember that this does not mean every entry will be added. We are looking for things that will add to the site's canon information and lore, things that people can use to supplement their posts or even give them ideas for future characters.

Not every character will be found in the encyclopedia, but just because your character isn't in it, that doesn't mean they're any less important! It's just like real life: some are known and famous, others aren't, but that doesn't make one person more important than the other.

Even once an entry has been submitted, it can be updated and changed later, so don't feel the need to have to write everything down at once! It can always be fixed at a later time.

IMPORTANT: It's important to note that once you submit an entry to be added, and once you are accepted, your idea becomes part of Demon Realm. The credit of original writing will stay with you, but we will have the authority to use your idea once it has be submitted, even if you leave the site.


Corporations

These are worldwide businesses that span the globe; most everyone will know about them. Think Apple, Sony, Microsoft, etc. These businesses will not have their own subforum, as it's implied they would have many buildings dedicated to them, so it's reasonable to say every floor could have at least one building that houses this corporation's offices.


Large Businesses

These are large businesses that people most likely would have heard in passing; they can be individual businesses, or chain businesses that span the globe. Think casinos, hotels, gyms, etc. They can have their own subforum, but that feature won't come until later (be excited!) For now they will just have a general location within the city so people can post there if they wish, mentioning their character is visiting said business.


Small Businesses

These are small businesses that would be relatively unknown, heard of only through word of mouth or through the internet. Think small bookstores, cafes, hairdressing salons, etc. They will not have their own subforums. Instead, much like large businesses, they will have a general location listed in their description for people to use if they wish to roleplay inside said business.


The City's Celebrities

These are people that have celebrity status, and many people know of. They are generally wealthy, own a lot of power, and often can be found in the spotlight. Just remember, the more power you have, the more danger you are in! This section is great for: Legion captains, Kairos vice lords (unless they choose to remain anonymous to the public), corporation CEOs, etc. Once again, having your character as a celebrity doesn't mean your character is more important; it simply means they are more in the public eye than others.


Infamous Alter Egos

These are the people that hide in the shadows to do either good or evil, and are known only by an alias. Generally their true identity is hidden behind their alter ego, and no one really knows who they are. This section is great for: Spirit Detectives with an alter ego (like a superhero), criminals that are known enough to have been given aliases, etc.


Do you have other ideas?

If you have an idea for another category, let us know! We are always willing to expand on the encyclopedia as much as we can, because we think it's a great way for the members to help grow and expand the site themselves!


Form

Name: Name of character, business, etc
Type: Which category does it fall under (business, celebrity, etc)
Alias: Character's alter ego name; only required for 'Infamous Alter Egos' section
Description: Description of character, business, etc. You can make it as long or as short as you want! All we ask is you give enough detail for other people to work off of. For example if it's a corporation you can describe what they make, where they are located in the world, who uses their product, etc. For a celebrity you could mention why they are a celebrity, what people know about them, etc.

Name: Billie Sweeney
Type: Infamous Alter Ego
Alias: Baidu

Description: Baidu (yes-- just like the Chinese-American internet company) is a lesser known hacker (cracker if we are being technical) most known for their involvement siphoning confidential information from secure systems including hospitals, the DMV, and various other institutionalized organizations. They operate alone and will utilize various individuals for interfacing, should the job call for a face-to-face interaction. It is unclear what their motive is and they will only accept for-hire jobs on a case-to-case basis. They have a tendency to provide a service more than a product via what appears to be White Rabbit affiliation. Reaching them can prove to be incredibly difficult: they've developed a ghost hacking protocol, a hybrid proxychain and IP scrambler which essentially latches onto an existing IP address for 30 seconds before refreshing and moving onto the next, effectively masking their trail and global location.

Karkadann, the 351st Floor


The 351st Floor of the City is named Karkadann, after the ancient, presumably mythical creature that once roamed the great plains of Persia. The name itself holds origins in the Persian “Kargadan”, their word for the Rhino, and means “Lord of the Desert”, and much like the name would imply, the weather on floor 351 is quite dry and hot, which would give the floor quite an arid feel were it not for the shift during nightfall.
When the sun sets on Karkadann, and the chill sets into the bleak surrounds, is when the floor really comes to life. Floor 351 holds an abundance of nightlife, clubs, restaurants, casinos and the like that party through the night, fighting back the cold air with open flames and street performances.
Many of the houses and buildings in Karkadann are wrought from heavy stone and built with large open windows usually adorned with cloth to allow for airflow during the oppressive heat of the day and still hold in the heat during the cold nights. There are, however, in the very centre of the floor, more “modern” buildings, all glass and dark polished stone that reflect the lights of the nightlife and are seen as something of the glittering jewels in the middle of the desert.
Of the numerous inhabitants and visitors to Karkadann, the vast majority are there for the nightlife, come to make their fortune or revel in the evening entertainment, and it is said there is something there for everyone to take their mind away from their regular life. Be you a pauper, you can watch the fireworks and the street performers juggle and dance, and with a little money, you can while away months if not years in the hotels, casinos and clubs, dining upon the finest cuisine and enjoying other sins of the flesh that are to be offered.
Karkadann offers much, but it is within the day when the sun rises and the harsh light gleams upon the cities that we see it for what it is, with the poor underbelly scuttering around like rats seeking to survive and maintain the impossible standards for which the floor is known. Karkadann is a jewel of the night, that cracks within the day.

Cities that resemble Karkadann: Rabat, Tunis, Tripoli.
Average rainfall in depth: 368mm

Landmarks

Teharaza’an, the Jeweled Gate
Not actually jeweled, this large archway serves to most as the entrance point to the main attractions within Karkadann, standing nearly 40 metres high and spanning 26 metres across, crafted from the darkened stone that spawns its name. When the sun goes down and the fires and lights are lit, the archway sparkles as it reflects all the light from the buildings around it, giving it the appearance of a jeweled gateway.
Many small cafes and performances are focused around the gateway, and it is often very busy, having become a fought for spot of performers and food stalls who are all too eager to find the right spot to set up in under the large archways, giving visitors a taste of what is to come for all who seek entrance into the floor proper.

Angarehim, the Tower Hotel
If there is one place that stands out above all others when seeking a place to stay in luxury, it is Angarehim, a veritable standard by which the other hotels are held against. And it is not just in terms of standards that Angarehim stands above others, it is quite literal too. Standing at 196 metres, Angarehim dwarfs almost every building around it, boasting 50 floors and over 300 rooms, which are served around the clock.
On the ground floor of Angarehim is a lavish casino that welcomes all comers (unless they have no money, then they are out of luck, literally), and seeks to drain dry the wallets of all foolish enough to wager everything. Should you get lucky, however, then you may even be offered one of the best suites in the building, one of the top floors, where each suite is served by a resident chef and sommelier, and you are treated to one of the best views in the city.
For residents of the floor, Angarehim is something akin to a dream, a giant reminder of their pursuit of opulence that may never come to fruition. For some it can be too much, and many have been the man or woman, or even demon, to attempt to gain a foothold in the hotel, to no avail, due to the vigilance of the veteran security team working around the clock.

Comments

This is just some fluff I was toying around with for the floor design in which one of my characters is to set up business in the area of. Any comments are welcome!
