Victoria's attack may not have gone according to plan, but at least she was able to escape from her failure before she went down with the rest of the army she had built. Her and Riley fled into seclusion, figuring that all they needed was a little bit of time to rethink things through, to make sure their next plan was foolproof. And this time she is intent enough in her ambitions that newborns will not be her first choice of an army.
Unbeknownst to her, James was never truly killed in the fire. The Cullens had to rush to get Bella to a hospital and a nomadic vampire, one with a distant relation to the Cullens, clearly had other plans. She resurrected his limbs from the ashes, able to save the majority of his remains before he burned to death. The woman made herself scarce after doing so as she was careful not to allow James to witness her existence. But she too has a bone to pick with the Cullen coven. James spent the months biding his time, and watching Victoria's actions from afar, amused by the lengths she would go to to avenge his murder. He even went so far as to track Alice, Bella and Edward all the way to Italy, keeping his distance all the while.
Victoria is on the verge of declaring another war on the coven she hates, James is planning to join her in her attempts in the near future, and the Volturi have their own threats to contend with. With a Guard member showing up dead and other signs and attacks being tossed their way, there is one thing that is clear: someone is out to overthrow the Volturi.
Now that a war is about to begin, what side will you choose?
|Frequently Asked Questions|
Is the game on Scribbld.com?
Nope! It's just a nice place to host our pages on since they don't show up in entries like on IJ! The game itself is definitely on InsaneJournal though!
What is the name of the game?
Eternal Damnation. "So eager for eternal damnation." - Edward Cullen, New Moon, Chapter 24, p.546.
What year is it in the game?
2007. We'll be following real time, just in the year of 2007. Modern music, television programs, movies may be used to keep things as simple on us as possible. Let's just try to stay away from political things though, please!
Will Renesmee be coming into play?
Nope, not at all. We enjoyed Breaking Dawn, but not so much the hybrid spawn of Bella and Edward. This may be altered at a later date should all players want for it to occur.
Okay, what's going on with Victoria, James, and the Newborn Army?
Victoria and Riley managed to flee the original battle that was set during Eclipse before Edward and Seth could kill them. James was essentially saved before he was completely burned in the fire, by a vampire who was keen on ending the Cullen line. It is believed to be the work of a volatile female who fled from the scene as soon as he was well. The more people out to destroy the Cullens, the better in her eyes. After all, they have something that she desires. As for the Newborn Army, the one that was in the book (Freaky Fred, Bree, Raoul) were killed during the attack. Victoria and Riley were the only two to escape.
So what are Victoria and Riley doing?
Regrouping. They are slowly rebuilding an army, which will give players the opportunity to play a newborn OC once the time comes. Just please be aware that should you go this route once the opportunity comes, that they more than likely will be killed later on. The army will not be made in the same fashion as the last one. This time, she will be recruiting vampire who are no longer in the frenzied newborn stage, but not quite out of it either. She will only be creating newborns for sport and to throw the Cullens and everyone else off. Her goal is to overthrow them.
Do I have to have read all of the books, or will just the movies suffice?
In short, yes you have to have read the books. The movies obviously leave out quite a bit of information that are needed to properly convey a certain character. Just the movies will not suffice.
Do we have to follow the timeline exactly?
Nope! In fact, we're kind of hoping that most things change! We're eager for you to take a creative look on all of the things we've listed out thus far. The timeline is not an outline, it's just a way for us all to keep track of past events and other ones we eventually want to fit in there. We'll change the dates accordingly!
Why have some of the dates changed from the books?
It's so we can sort of drag it out a bit longer, and have it happening more closely to the date we are at now so it isn't so far in the past.
Do all canon pairings need to be followed?
Definitely. The main ones, at least. Alice and Jasper, Rosalie and Emmett, etc.
Do I have to use the movie actor as my PB?
Yes and no. For the main three characters, the movie PB is required. For secondary main characters, such as the rest of the Cullens, the movie PBs are encouraged. For others, the movie PBs are preferred but not enforced. Please feel free to let us know if you need help with a PB - we're always willing to help!
What about original characters?
How do the journals work, exactly?
Simple! They function as any online journal system would, but it is not IJ or LJ or anything of that nature. It's just an online journal, and you can post on it from your computer or from your phone. Icons do not exist to your character as they are simply for our enjoyment. And please refrain from using too many smiley faces!
Can strike throughs be read?
Vampires must be careful in their hunting so that humans do not become aware of their species. If a human becomes aware, it is up to the vampire that gave them the knowledge of the vampire world in the first place to silence that human. Most human-vampire interactions go unnoticed by the Volturi, but should something indicative and suspicious enough garner attention, such as vampire activity in the news, the Volturi will hunt down these claims.
The Volturi created many myths to disguise their existence.
It can take anywhere from 2-3 days for the transformation to be made complete. This depends on how much venom enters the bloodstream and how close to the heart it is. The pain is indescribable and there is nothing to dull this pain. The only thing that may be done is to still the body with some form of drug in which the body will not thrash. The venom has to work its way through the entire system until all of the blood is burned into the venom and it takes over the heart to finally still it. Venom moves slower because it is thicker than blood and has to saturate every cell before one can wake as a vampire.
Vampire Reproduction and Hybrids:
Out of the thousands of vampires on the planet, there are only five known hybrids in existence, and these five all originated from only two sources. Male vampires have the capacity to pass on genetic material with a human female partner, though this is incredibly rare. It is beyond the ability of most vampires to be so close to a human physically and still resist the lure of her blood. Also, vampires are so much stronger than humans that any loss of self-control at such close proximity can quickly lead to mortal injury to the human.
- Once a vampire falls in love, it mates for life and that feeling never fades.
Not all members of the Quileute tribe are capable of transforming into wolves, as only those who can directly trace their bloodlines back to the very first shape-shifter, Taha Aki, are born with the gene to potentially transform. If a descendant of Taha Aki, they are born with twenty-four chromosomal pairs instead of the normal twenty-three. It used to be believed that the extra chromosomal pair could only be passed down to the males but that theory was proven false once Leah Clearwater phased. The first time they phase is between the onset of puberty and the age of twenty-five. It is based upon two factors: their heritage and how close/how many vampires are in their proximity. This extra chromosome will not have any effect on the carrier if he or she is not in close proximity to vampires during all or part of the critical time between the onset of puberty and the age of twenty-five. If the potential werewolf is not exposed to vampires within this window of time, transformation will never occur. It is the scent of the vampire that triggers the reaction; a potential werewolf would not have to actually see or touch a vampire, only cross his scent.
Signs that a male is about to phase for the first time include a spike in their height and increased muscle mass. For the female wolf, the signs are not as noticeable for she will not gain height or weight, but become more toned. In both genders, their body temperature will rise above what it should be for a normal human, and they will undergo sudden mood swings and bouts of uncontrollable rage. During these moments of rage if the wolf is close to transforming, their body will undergo shaking.
Though similar to average wolves, they are a great deal larger. Their teeth are strong enough to rip into a vampire's skin, and they can run as fast as a vampire would. They have incredible strength both in their wolf and human forms, but their human form is no match for a vampire. The length of their hair effects the length of their fur. They can communicate telepathically with other members of the pack and have advanced healing in both wolf and human form.
Some believe that imprinting ensures the passing on of the werewolf gene; others believe that imprinting happens to produce larger, stronger wolves in the next generation. The werewolves do not know the answer for certain.
