So Hades exists in this universe. There are tons of gods in the UCverse, so the Olympus 12 don't exist as they do in usual Digimon lore: they don't rule over the entire Digital World. They basically rule over the island subcontinent of Olympia (as seen on the map in the signup thread). Olympus is a godly kingdom like Asgard is. Hades is a death god, but doesn't actually deal with the Dark Area - that's a very different thing here. He more rules over rituals and veneration of the dead. Death gods are more "priests" or "shamans" than the canon description of Anubismon or Plutomon.
Yep, and it's all thanks to D.C. Douglas. That man practically stole the show in Resident Evil 5 with his performance as Wesker, and the over the top nature of his line delivery in that game made the character very quotable.
Yeah, pretty much. At this point it's basically a "crap-we-weren't-prepared-for-this-let's-do-something-before-they-die" moment. As for a guard character: it'd take a lot for someone to just up and join the Realmless like that...or for the realmless to accept someone right off the bat.
I remember when you were around. It's always sad to see people go. I know it happens, but still saddening. You could stick around as a community member. Lots of things have changed, we even have a new TL system. Remember, all members are valued!
