Another RP.... I'm bored.... :D This one is loosely based off the book Scythe
This world is set a little over 200 years from now. Technology has advanced beyond our wildest dreams. There is no war, no disease, no misery. Everyone has a place. Except, since there has been no natural death, the worlds population is exploding. Overpopulation has become a giant crisis and the governments of the world are trying to fix it. They all gathered together and came up with one solution. Scythes.
Scythes are people that are specifically chosen by the government. They are the ones who will keep the population in control....by gleaning. Gleaning is the only way a person can be killed in this world now the medicine has progressed so far that they can bring people back from the dead. A Scythe must follow a strict code of conduct or else they may be gleaned themselves. Each Scythe may choose to take on an apprentice. It is not required, but it is encouraged. These apprentices will take a test from the high scythe at the end of their training and if they pass they will receive scythedom, if not, they get gleaned.
-Thou shalt kill.
-Thou shalt kill with no bias, bigotry, or malice aforethought.
-Thou shalt grant an annum of immunity to the beloved of those who accept your coming, and to anyone else you deem worthy.
-Thou shalt kill the beloved of those who resist.
-Thou shalt serve humanity for all of thy days, and thy family shall have immunity as recompense for as long as you live.
-Thou shalt lead an exemplary life in word and deed, and keep a journal of each and every day.
-Thou shalt kill no scythe beyond thyself.
-Thou shalt claim no earthly possessions, save thy robes, ring, and journal.
-Thou shalt have neither spouse nor spawn.
-Thou shalt be beholden to no laws beyond these.

Other random things:
-A person will be granted a year of immunity if they kiss a scythes ring
-the family of a gleaned person get to kiss a scythes ring
-the immediate family of the scythe gets immunity for as long as that person is a scythe
-Scythes do not have to abide by the rules of the regular population
-most people fear scythes since they can gleam pretty much who ever they want
-scythes usually take on a different name when they receive their scythehood
You can be:
a normal human
a government worker
(I'll add more if they come up)
-Don't kill anyone else's character without permission
- Be kind and respectful
- keep the gore at bay
- don't delete anyone from the studio
-Codeword is Blade
- don't change the description
-you can only be a Scythe if your older than 15, otherwise you have to be an apprentice
