The rough lore aspect behind it:
The Lords have died. Of Gwynevere remains but an illusion, Gwyn was burnt to ashes, Gwyndolin and Velka alone remain as true deities yet one is but a shadow of the power a God would have possessed, the other apparently vanished into myth.
With the world at the brink of the Age of Dark, a new force had to be awakened to save the world.
New Gods had to be born. Yet, who would ever be able to give birth to Gods?
This group of undead perceive their ability to be reborn as a piece of immortality. They believe that they are the new Gods, that they saw through the lies of the Serpents and now realise their one true fate: to walk a path no one else did before them and truly succeed the Gods. Not to replace them, not to become fuel for the Flame, but to become Gods themselves. To unite Lordran under their rule.
Yeah, that was the rough idea. This Covenant would heavily focus on Blade of the Dark Moon, but other Covenants, provided you can implement it into the character's story, are also allowed, except for Darkwraith as they scorn the Serpents (it is allowed to "use" them though). Thought about putting SL200 as the ideal for all characters for the Covenant (we'd HAVE to be godlike ), but not entirely sure about that.
Character Creation would be relatively free. You know how it is: we have an Allfather of Gods, God of War, God of Harvest, and so on. Be creative! You would pick your God, pick armour and weaponry/casts that go well with the theme of the God and roleplay as that character. Only one each would be allowed (can't have two Gods of War waging war against each other), cosplaying the "old" Gods wouldn't count. If the God of your choice is taken, then you can work around that. There are so many things where there could be Gods. Just look at the Shintoist Kami: there is an unlimited amount of them. There's no boundaries as to what you may be. You may even be the God of the Abyss. There's no code of honour or whatsoever, act according to what you God would be. But remember: no matter what, we are on the same side.
If this is against the Lore of existing active Covenants, do tell me.
So... is anyone here interested? If enough are and this is not against the lore of existing Covenants, I'll go ahead and make this one an actual Covenant. Help with it would be very appreciated then.
