This is one session to help orientate my players by letting them get to know their characters by rp’ing their awakening.
Bryne Garett (Crim) – A freelance investigator/body guard. Hired by Dennis for unknown reasons. After making his way to the Welson Apartment complex, where Dennis resided, he found the given room number on the 14th floor (13th for those who really know). Before he could even knock, an explosion knocked him unconscious.
To Bryne, he was blown through the wall to an inevitable death. During free fall, he witnessed an angel come down from the heavens and offer a hand to save him. He took it. The angel carried him towards the sky, laying onto him the story of an epic battle with demons that was being waged in the sky. Bryne’s Help was needed, as was the countless numbers of other warriors that were being brought to this battleground in the heavens. He then descended upon the back lines of the celestial field for preperation for an arrowhead formation assualt to reclaim a tower that resonated in great power.
After being outfited with a sword and shield uppon request, he was informed on battle plans. After enough soldiers had been gathered and outfitted as well, they set out to the front lines. The battle ensued for the watch tower. celestial solders died, but more of the enemy parished. Through a massacre of demons, the arrow hit its mark. Bryne made his way inside to secure the tower, sacrificing his twin pistols that were the strangely the key to the tower. After clearing the tower, he found an open book. He saw the names of great warriors in this book, seeing an empty space and pen nearby…. he wrote his name.
He awakens from his reverie, strangely realizing he was not harmed from the blast from the apartment.
