Archon is within the world, and the world will never be the same for its presence.

The dead walk among the living, and the living among the dead. Spirits are throughout the world, and the long dead have returned for all to see. People no longer die, new life cannot be kindled, and life in the presence of becoming remains in limbo. Wounds no longer heal, the dead never truly die, the world is in a state of perpetual stasis where death and life are meaningless, outdated terms.

OOC:

Y
ou can make a conversation with Elz and I prefaced with [Revenant] and your character's name, signifying your interest in playing a revenant. Any character, no matter how long they have been dead, are eligible to revive under special stipulations. This will be available for the duration of the campaign, but to clarify, they will not be around forever. That will be explained later down the line.


Character Name: (Char name and profile if you have one)
Estimated date of Death: ('a few months ago' or 'a few years ago' is fine too)
Unique abilities/spells/etc: (If they were a mage, a blessed, cursed, etc)



Those who are presently alive would note that their bodies are as if in a state of perpetual stasis. Wounds sustained no longer heal, and it seems physically impossible to die. No amount of trauma, even the complete stopping of one's heart or destruction of one's brain brings them to a state of death. Body parts which are cut off are able to be manipulated as though they had never been severed. There are no more biological functions - people don't need to breathe, eat, sleep, or relieve themselves. It is as though their bodies are in a perpetual stasis. People who are currently carrying children will not experience their growth or birth, and new life cannot be kindled in otherwise fertile people. If anyone wants to try to explore these boundaries, send us a research conversation.

OH WAIT i just thought of something: can people cry with this new stasis? or is it physically impossible right now?

Quick questions: What about Vyres? Are they affected the same as others?
Aka: If they die, they no longer go through their 'normal' death and its effects and instead just 'recover' on the spot without detriment (besides the state their body is in)? Also does the 'no hunger' bit mean that Vyres don't need to consume blood for now?

People don’t need to eat but can they? And do digestive functions still technically work or...?

according to this, no. I imagine a world where if you eat or drink something, you just get a distended stomach because it's just staying there unless you vomit it back out. that's my head canon anyway xD

You can still cry.

They don't die, nor heal, same as others. No longer need blood either.

As tempting as Niah's version was:
They can eat, and process it as they would, but they don't need to. They don't get hungry nor need it but sometimes people like to eat or drink for socialising and whatever anyway. : )

If you bleed out are you considered dead or alive....

or neither
You can bleed out but still just be alive like you didn't need it anyway. You'd get grossly pale, though. All the effects of bloodloss but you just don't die. And remain conscious.

Sorry last question
Do you still feel pain from an injury? Like, is it just the initial pain and then it fades, or are you in constant agony?

If someone is pregnant, do they just remain perpetually pregnant?

Is that what happens?

What if you burn something to ashes? Stupid question I know, but what happens then?
