"Ethereal Dominance" is an RPG about the merging of the spirit world and the "Near Future" world. The result creates a world of instability and fantasy. A twisted and distorted physical ghost world. Spirits flood from the other world to take refuge in their turbulent war for dominance within the bodies of humans. In this, the humans gain strange powers, but are also pushed into madness by the presence of the spirit inside them.

Players must fall under these certain types of characters:
1) "Un-Possessed" people, who are free from any spiritual bondage
2) "Sane" people, who are in balance with themselves and the spirits inside them.
3) "Stricken" people, who are in conflict with the spirits inside them.
4) "Insane" people, who are in balance with the spirits inside them, but have been mentally broken to achieve that.
5) "Possessed" people, who have lost their bodies to the spirits inside them.

The setting is within the year 2482 within a small, enclosed, quarantine space of a city within ruin under the presence of the invading spirits (on a scale of 1-10 in terms of total apocalypse, give this an 8). The nameless city that is under the fall of the dominance wars is separated by the rest of the world through the means of an all-encompassing force-field device that has been able to contain the spirits and their acquired host. In the mean time, the outside world plays little-to-no purpose within the plot, which will focus upon the surviving people and their struggles to free themselves and/or submit to the war and fight one another to the death.

In the beginning, there are no exact alliances/side. You may form teams of your own discretion. You are also allowed to transcend player types as the RPG progresses (as well as alliances/side). Anything really goes so long as players are driving to fight each other in the wars and/or survive against the impending threats the appear. The player type does NOT determine the exact nature (Good or evil) of a player and players may rightfully chose their sides and switch as the time goes along (it is a free-for-all war, after all).

You are allowed to control up to 3 different characters (6 if you include the spirits within them, possibly) and players are allowed to die out so long as discretion is given to the owner of the character in advance (no butcher off other players) and it is advised that players at least retain control over one character of their own creation throughout the entire RPG (again, unless organised to end up killing off their characters entirely).

An important note: Player's character(s) may change types over the course of the RPG, but know that once a spirit is bound to a human being, it cannot be removed from their body. No body/partner switch is allowed. Sorry.

Also an important note: If a player's human character is killed, the spirit inside of them may either die with them or escape out back into the world (there are wander spirits in this place, after all). It's not recommended players play as a spirit without a host, but it may be done. Still, retaining control over at least one human character is advised (see further details on the rule below).

There is no definitive plot as the story initially begins. Each player/character may have their own goals and ideals in mind. As well, sides and alliances (again) may shift and change as the story goes along. However, after I (LordGavin) appear later on in the story with the character named ("To Be Announced". Sorry, gotta think up a better name. Note: I will be controlling more than one character still) as the main villain, a proper establishment of sides MUST be made, so that there is a solidified force of good vs evil. Do know that good will triumph over evil in the end, but the sides must still be decided for your character(s) when that time begins to approach (as in, sides don't need to appear instantaneously but, in the end, all people must be fighting either for or against my character). As well, even if you chose to be evil, you DO NOT HAVE TO DIE IN THE END. The ending I have planned will open up a sequel possibility and villains (besides me) are still allowed to survive because of that, so don't favor good, please. ;P

For sign ups, Role Players must give the following information for review to acceptance (Repeat for any additional character you wish to control. Up to 3 maximum and they do NOT have to be similar in anyway [encouraged that they aren't]):
1) Character name and basic bio/appearance (must include personality and history/back-story is welcomed)
2) Name and personality of the spirit inside your character (personality should differ from the character. Note, most and all spirits do not have much humanity of memories of their form lives, so no need to detail that sort of info)
3) Character's power (must be within reason and simplicity. Power cannot include the ability to "rip" souls from others and/or "drain" souls from others [amongst playing God as well, of course])
4) What type of character are they (Sane, Stricken, etc.)
5) What side they're on (Being "Good", "Evil", or "Neutral", basically)

I don't think I've forgotten anything. I will announce those accepted for the RPG as time passes, as well as give notice to when the RPG will start. With that said, lets see what you've all got.

--- --- ---
EDIT: Just to better visualize the sides/types of characters, I'm listing them here. Everyone so far is accepted into the RPG, otherwise, but it still hasn't started (just to avoid confusion there).

1) Sophie Rose: Long Black hair, with emerald green highlights and grey eyes; a scar on her right arm. A strong minded girl who loves hunting and thinks all problems are solved with an arrow to the head. She never had a friend in her life before Rue.
Sophie grew up in a small community on the outskirts of the City, which was what Sophie always thought to be its name; never being told what it is called. She grew up as a minority; and an orphan, and needed to take care of herself. She took up archery as a way to defend herself as well as a method to feed herself and whomever she was with. After trying to fight a very large beast; she was struck; flung far from the beast and was almost dying. That was when Rue came and saved her life.
2) Rue Anne: A gentler being; that though gets along with Sophie, they fight a lot. She is loyal to Sophie. She does not remember anything about her history.
3) Sane
4) Extremely good aim and acute senses for night hunting.
5) Good

1) Jenny LeScara. She once was a kind person, but after trying to create balance with the spirit inside her, she has become nasty, skeptical and untrusting of others. She often fights with her spirit and has trouble maintaining balance, losing control from time to time. She often has fits of uncontrollable, maniacal laughter. She is of average height, black hair and brown eyes.
2) Miros, a trickster spirit. He likes getting others to do what he wants. He will sometimes manipulate Jenny into helping with his tricks.
3) Water and Ice power
4) Insane
5) Neutral (in the start at least. My character may choose a side, when the time comes.)

1) Jackson D. Raux, or just Raux to his friends, was a college student in the city before the spirit world merged. Coming from an abusive family life, he had put msot of it behind him by now and led a cheery life, making those he came in contact with laugh. But he still held on to the memories of his father abusing his mother, and his mother doing the same to him. He hates being called Jackson or Jack. That was his father's name. He now falls in and out of control of his own body, with the spirit that has possessed him bringing out the sadistic tendencies of his family that he thought he had locked away forever.

Appearance: 5'8, 210 pounds, dirty blonde hair covered by a gray cabbie hat. Blue shirt, leather jacket, jeans, shoes. Nothing particularly exxceptional physique-wise.

2) Animus Sanguis, a viscous and powerful spirit, attacked Raux when the worlds first merged. He is an ancient, bloodthirsty spirit who wants nothing more than blood and death. he intends not to conquer the world, but simply kill it off. He doesn't remember his name from his past life, but goes by the name given to him in the early days of man, Animus Sanguis, which roughly translate to "Soul of Bloodshed"
3) Powers: Short range teleportation inside the city. While Animus is in control, he can use 'ethereal energy' to shoot beams of blue energy from his hands.
4) Stricken, switching between control by Raux and Animus
5) Side: Neutral

1) Volke - Surrendering his real name in order to hide his identity he hides behind his "shroud" and mask. standing at about 5'8 the only visible parts on him are his sky blue eyes and spiky hair. Volke practiced long and hard before the collapse of the city. He was fascinated with assassin fighting styles and there ability to maneuver almost anywhere so he did the closest thing he could think of. He practiced in many martial arts as well as parkour and knife/dagger fighting styles. Training everyday to become as physically fit as he could be. When the city fell he was on his way home he freaked out and ran into an ally way only to find to his dismay a wandering spirit. He fealt the spirits lust for blood and froze. The spirit tried to posses volke but could not because of volke's willpower so instead he offered volke a deal. Relaying his name as shadow he promised volke augmented physical abilities and a chance to become a real assassin. The only thing shadow wanted was the chance to kill again. Volke tempted with his childhood dream accepted the terms on condition that they work together and it wasnt a full possession. After shadow entered volke they found eachother extremelt compatible. forgoing his moral compass for his new insatiable urge to kill volke set out to find his victims.

2) Shadow is a spirit of war. The only thing he can remember is the name given to him by his "clan" and his combat styles and techinques. Lastly he remembers chains. He has taken this to symbolize that everyone is bound to the chains of life. and everyone's chains can be broken.

3) Powers: Volke has augmented physical capabilities (i.e. higher jumps, and faster reaction times), as well as Shadows ability to heighten sense other tahn sight giving volke an advantage during battles not involving sight. Lastly when in full alliance with shadow, shadow can summon 2 ethereal chains from volkes back that can lengthen or shorten at will. These chains act on shadows will not volkes. if deatached from volke's body the chains will only last a short while and can no longer be extended or shrunk.

4) sane
5) Having only an insatiable urge to kill Volke will take on any mission requested of him as long as there is death involved. (so neutral? i guesss)

Character 01 for LordGavin: (NOT THE MAIN VILLAIN)

Human Name: Clifton Briggs

Appearance: Shirtless, thin bodied man of his late twenties with an athletic build. Slightly shorter than average height and has a light, plastered mat of darkened hair upon his head. His eyes constantly change colours, varying from both natural and unnatural states, and his teeth remain in a state of random filth and rot. His skin is pale, but bares many knife-cutting scars (of which he did upon himself, mostly). His pants are heavy and torn in most places, and covered in dark, bloody splotches. He also has the light barrings of a beard.

Human Bio: Clifton (otherwise known as simply "Cliff") was an unfortunate casualty during the breaking between the two worlds, caught close to the central release of spiritual energies within the core of the city. Instantly, as the spirit ripped through his body, he came into the clutches of 4, polarizing spirits that became bound into his being. Cliff might as well of died during the whole ordeal, but instead survived throughout it all as the swirl of angered spirits inside of him merged with his own soul, creating together a singular, psychotic being. Cliff now suffers horribly from schizophrenia due to the multitude of spirits within his being and, for the most part, has forgotten everything about his previous, mortal life. Now driven by blinding madness, Cliff's desires and actions can range from passive observation to rabid and disfiguring murder. Aside from using his mortal name, Cliff only refers to himself as "We" now.

Spirit Name: (Unknown)

Spirit Bio: The spirits that became bound to Cliff's body were of a random mixture in unknown natures. It is completely unclear as to who or what they were, but given Cliff's possessed and insane nature, it is believed now that there only exists one unstable being within his body, brought upon the earth by the means of unfortunate chance.

Power(s): Cliff possesses a limited array of powers that he rarely finds use for in his unstable state, leaving them to activate at random due to the state of his emotions. However, his body can sometimes become cloaked within a dense, burning aura of Ethereal energies, granting his enhanced speed and strength. Sometimes, the aura's power in itself can lash out and damage his surroundings, but this effect proves even more random and rarer. Beyond that, he has an obsession with knives and, sometimes, cuts himself with them, allowing his unnatural blood to corrode the blade's edges and turn them into pure energy. These knives can prove fatal for most all spirits and mortals, delivering concentrated doses of ethereal blood-poisoning and can, if left unattended, lead to total spiritual disintegration and death for a host and their spirit within mere hours. His eyes can glow within their changing states as well.

Character type: Insane

Initial Side: Evil

Location: In the place we like to call "nowhere"
Character 1
1) Melissa Grey is a very sarcastic and yet overly sweet woman who enjoys toying with others and their emotions. She can be quite aloof at times tending to keep to herself. (This of course changes after she meets the main villain of the story whom she immediately takes a liking towards) Often times she is just found wandering about aimlessly as if searching for something.
Melissas backstory includes the death of her previous host (when she took over the body it is believed that she was the one to kill her host though she never speaks of it. Its believed she had some sort of connection to her host) She has no memories of her former life as she is merely a spirit connected to a body.
Melissas normal appearance is that of a Caucasian woman in her late 20s early 30s with long brown hair generally pulled back into a braid that stretches to her waist as well as steel grey eyes that shine like silver. She is around five foot eight and is decently built with a relatively curved body.
2) See above. (Possessed therefore has only one spirit)
3) Master of disguise/deception. Has the ability to create hypnotic illusions. (Ability is strengthened if the person has two spirits however possessed/"unpossessed" are not effected by this ability)
4) Possessed
5) Evil (right hand "man" of main villain)

Character 2
1) Crystal Terris is average in appearance standing at about 5 foot 5 inches, a muscular build(for a girl), with medium length curled light brown hair and silverish blue eyes. She generally is dressed in casual clothing consisting of a short sleeved top and khaki brown pants. However her clothing becomes a bit more "professional" when on the job often wearing tight fit black leather which fits perfectly around her (curves are improved by the spirit inside her) slightly oversized chest.

Crystal is a sweet girl who has a strong regard for human and spirit life alike. In her regular life she was a studier of herbal medicine and as such had already some knowledge of healing skills. She was met with the unfortunate curse of having to carry Elaine in her body from birth due to her family being "spirit hunters" who had a special bond with spirits before hand allowing them enhanced abilities in combat against the "undead"

Although Crystals mainly focused her studies on healing magic and the art of medicine she was still trained in the art of combat by her relatives. Not a lover of fighting Crystal would often try her best to stay away from whatever missions she could. However as time passed the spirit inside her became more aggressive taking over her body more often then not.

2) Elaine. Elaine is the stronger and more aggressive of the two girls. Having had to deal with a life within Crystals body shes eventually come to accept her as her "other half" but still thinks her weak and will not hesistate to take control when needed. She often takes control when Crystal is either too weak to fight or simply tired. (Elaine sleeps when Crystal is awake but is awake when Crystal is asleep Elaine often takes over as such Crystal has taught herself to live on very little sleep) she has the same degree of skill in combat as Crystal but at a more extreme level.

3) Crystal/Elaine are both highly trained in combat. Crystal has a great knowledge of healing magic/herbs. Elaines power remains a secret as if she used it...it would break Crystal completely.

4) Sane (Could be considered Stricken)

5) Neutral (Will kill if needed) Currently working for a small bounty hunter organization that will take on any job given. Often travels about the city searching for jobs. Will play to the highest bidder. ;)

Character 3
1) Aaron Sage is a six foot one ginger man in his early 30s who dresses casually in most cases with a basic jeans/t shirt combo. Aaron was born in a city outside of the city in which this RP takes place. Formerly he was a volunteer fireman turned private investigator. (After arson wiped out his family)
He was sent into the city just after the events began. It is said he went there for "personal" reasons however although what those reasons are nobody knows. He acts as part of the "peace keepers" within the city now the closest thing they have to an actual police officer.
He is one of the few people who possesses knowledge about the barrier between the city and the rest of the world. He also has numerous spiritual knowledge able to identify spirit "strengths"
For some odd reason Aaron is one of the only people who has the ability to remain unpossessed by any outside spirits. It is believed this is derived from some sort of immunity in his blood but has not been proven as of yet.
Aaron is currently working in a small office on the outskirts of the city near where the main entrance to the barrier lies. He watches over the "comings and goings of the city" as a sort of self proclaimed "governmental agent" there to keep things from falling completely to chaos.
Hes lazy and has little regard for those other than himself but will still go out of his way to help the people in need in the city. He will do everything in his power to keep this city alive and from completely falling to the chaos that has befallen them. He is impulsive but quick witted.
2) Unknown.
3) Aaron has special "spirit" guns that shoot bullets which cannot only pierce human flesh but the spirit inside of them as well. Generally not used for killing but rather injuring these weapons were specially designed in order to help "protect and defend" those around him. Also has various other degrees of technology. (will be mentioned later. Nothing too extreme/story changing)
4) Unpossessed
5) Good

Location: On my bed, sleeping
Edit: Here goes!

Character 1) Damon Polemavre. The eldest child of the three Polemavre children, he is the type to smile through anything and laugh at everything. He was somewhat spoiled as a child in regards to work, but he doesn't show it in his personality. He doesn't show much of anything in emotion, trying to hide away what he feels behind his smile. Damon is 6'1 with very short blond hair, 19 years old.
Spirit: Graham Ruhe. Graham is relaxed, incredibly patient, and always calm. At times, he can be almost sleepy in the way he "acts"
Ability: Featherfall (On whim)! Can also, to a slightly limited extent, control the levels of light in a small region
Disposition: Sane-Good

Character 2) Drake Polemavre. The youngest child, Drake is quieter and has a moderate sense of entitlement. He doesn't hate Damon, but he blames Damon for the death of their sister, the middle child Adrianna. He has notably longer, but thin and flat blond hair running down in front of his eyes. 5'5, 15 years old.
Note: At the start, Drake won't have a spirit. Here's what WILL happen eventually...
Spirit: Logi Owen. Similar to Katrina's Miros, Logi is a trickster, although far more sadistic in nature. Textbook antisocial personality disorder.
Ability (When it comes): Fire fire fire. Yummy tasty delicious fire. Will also be able to mold it into semi-tangible forms
Disposition: Starts off Neutral, will be insane-evil

IMPORTANT DEAD CHARACTERS:-----------------
Adrianna Epaon: The mother. She died 9 years before the start of the story.
Danielle Polemavre. The sister of the two. After Adrianna dies, she ends up keeping Damon and Drake in line, doing homework, etc. She died a year ago while with Damon, caught up in a spirit conflict. A week later, Damon "acquired" his spirit.
---------------------------
Not Dead character:
Character 3) Detuko Polemavre. The father of Damon, Dani, and Drake. He was once a wealthy Businessman born in Southern France but grew up in Chicago. He had moved into "The City" after marrying Adrianna. She died when Damon was 10 and Detuko fell into a depressed state. He didn't take much interest in continuing to raise the kids, which is when Danielle took over. He doesn't do much from day to day, but would do almost anything to keep his sons from harm should the need arise.
Spirit: None
Disposition: Neutral, but might as well be good

Your ideas seem pretty solid, Plastic. Go ahead and take your time with it and post it when you want. I would love to start this RPG by this Friday, giving us all 5 days to join and then the weekend to get things rolling. However, I'd delay it a week longer still if necessary to allow more to join. After all, the more people (and especially characters) that join, the better. For now though, I think that should work, so long as the cast is fleshed out enough.

And as for my villain's name, I didn't just change it because of you making fun of it, I honestly didn't like it anymore. I've spent a year doing SotE writing now and have come up with a format/liking to certain names and naming styles, so I just wanna come up with a stronger name is all. After all, it's been a year since I last made the name "Lance Rame", so lets make it a bit better now, if I can.

Character 02 for LordGavin: (MAIN VILLAIN)

Human Name: David Artzer

Appearance: An average height man in his early thirties with a burly build. His hair is short and black; spiked upwards. He's commonly seen wearing a black and red shirt with dark jeans, along with a long, dark, studded, leather coat. Beyond that, his eyes are solid white and, sometimes, burn with a hateful, red, ethereal energy. Occasionally as well, his skin has been known to turn black and his teeth elongate, becoming sharpened in the process. It's rumoured he had adapt to even more menacing forms, but no one has seen it first hand (and, at least, lived to tell of it directly).

Human Bio: David was a man of unknown history before the events of the merging worlds. After his body was taken by the spirit known as Xaphan, he was driven quite mad, forgetting much of what he once was. However, he didn't so much fall under Xaphan's control as he did become his slave. Xaphan ruined his life, forcing him to murder his wife and children and, in use of his powers, devour their souls. With the tormenting screams of his beloved echoing inside his head, it wasn't long before David succumbed to the tyrannical spirit's will. In time, David has grown to think much like Xaphan and, for the most part, it's believed their spirits are now one. However, in light of David's physical adaptions, it's believed that control over his body interchanges, but his mind and behaviors remain mostly unchanged.

Spirit Name: Xaphan

Spirit Bio: Xaphan is a feared spirit from the other world, known widely amongst the astral plains as "The Soul Eater". When he was thrown from that world into the real, he quickly took control over David and forced him into submission of his will. With him under both his indirect and direction control, he began to use David to feed himself both the souls of the living and the dead, granting him a slow, growing array of power and dominance over the spirits from the other world. Hungry for more, Xaphan looks to break through the barrier between the city and the remainder of the world, wishing the feed himself and hasten the merging of the world. In time, he desires ultimate control and to freely harvest those he wishes for his own, distasteful gain. He is known, however, a spirit of his word and will use others wisely to accomplish his goals. Otherwise, he is seen as a mindless and destructive killer.

Power(s): Xaphan grants David one primary and signature ability, and that's the power to devour souls. Sadly though, being limited to his mortal body, Xaphan can only absorb spirits that are not sheltered within bodies, forcing him to murder anyone in order to reap them of their souls. As he continues to gain power from the spirits he takes in, he also gains telepathic dominance over the weaker minded, allowing him to rally the insane to his side and services. He may yet possess more powers beyond this, but it's all otherwise unknown. However, it's believed that with enough power he could forge for himself newer traits and, on top his signature ability, it widely feared for his horrid nature.

Character type: Insane/Possessed

Initial Side: Evil

If I can't do my character, let me know, okay?

1) Character name: Flint Szere
bio: Flint was born to two female parents, who had their ways of getting a born child. He had a pretty bland childhood. His parents never did anything with him, and they taught him not to care about anything. He managed to coast through school. Needless to say, he's not too bright. Also, for some reason, he has yet to get a spirit within him.
appearance: Medium in height, 175 pounds, peach skin, light black hair, deep green eyes, average in physical strength, basic black shirt and tan pants, golden ring on right ring finger
Personality: Flint is a carefree person who takes almost nothing seriously. Outside of his carefree attitude, those who are close to him get to see his kind side. But you have to work hard at it, as he wants almost nothing to do with others. You need to do something big to get his attention.

2) Name of spirit: N/A
personality of spirit: N/A

3) Character's power: None yet.

4) Un-possessed

5) Neutral

Character 03 for LordGavin: (NOT THE MAIN VILLAIN)

Human Name: Mathew Hasbrouck

Appearance: An older man of above average height in his early forties. He has short-lengthed, silvering hair with a mild beard to match. He dresses normally in a light-grey overcoat and a soft, blue shirt, with heavy, darkened pants. He has an above average build.

Human Bio: Mathew was once the loving father of his three children, beyond which he couldn't have been considered anything more special than the average man. However, in light of the events in the merging worlds, he lost his children to both their own insanity and murder before the hands of the erupting chaos. With his family either dead of removed beyond the barrier, Mathew strives to survive in the light of his once failing life, desiring either to end the fighting or somehow escape through the barrier that keeps him from safety of the outside world. He's a very quiet and lonely person now, gripped by the sickening grief of his family's fate. He wants nothing more but to be left alone to his own means, whatever they happen to be.

Spirit Name: (Unknown)

Spirit Bio: Mathew knows he now shares his body with a spirit. However, due to the spirit's limited presence within him, he doesn't know a thing about it. Somehow, sometime during the initial events of the merging, he knew it had bonded itself to him, but had he not later discovered the new powers he controlled, he wouldn't have ever known. Occasionally, his body with radiate with an unnatural cold, leaving him shivering amidst his releasing power; sometimes causing frost to grow over his nearby surroundings. Beyond which, Mathew rarely feels the desire to call upon his gift, dreading both in itself the memory of the spirits that took away his family and life before hand and the threat he could pose to the outside world, if he ever made it back there.

Power(s): Mathew can control an array of cold energies that allows him to form ice, snow, and frost. However, this is mainly a minor side-effect within his aura whenever he uses his true gift, which allows him to corrode his body in a dense, metallic sheeting. When in contact with most any form of steel or metal, he can pull from it a small amount of material and use it to coat his body, granting him greater strength and defensive capabilities. When garbed (totally or partially) in metal, his cold aura becomes more active, allowing him to better control his icy powers and, sometime, inflict wounds that can instantly freeze over. These wounds don't exactly hasten his enemy's death, but can be unbearably painful to endure until they thaw out.

Character type: Sane

Initial Side: Neutral

My second character.

1) Character name: Troy Patterson
bio: Troy was born to a man and woman, but they quickly sent Troy off to an orphanage because they didn't want a child. The orphanage was a beat-down one, and life was very hard for Troy. He had nothing and could do almost nothing. In fact, he didn't even get through High School all of the way. He was useless, at least, until he got a spirit...
appearance: 6 feet tall, 170 pounds, peach skin, brown hair, brown eyes, has a black goatee, has some muscle to him, white T-shirt, blue jeans, and a backpack on his back
Personality: Troy is the kind of guy who would do almost anything anyone asked him. He is very kind to everyone, and puts others ahead of himself. Troy prefers good over evil, but...

2) Name of spirit: Gaap
personality of spirit: Gaap loves to kill people. Nothing pleases Gaap more then to see people suffer and die. Anything that can be destroyed, Gaap wants destroyed. Gaap is so powerful that in the first instant of entering Troy, Gaap was in full control.

3) Character's power: Troy on his own has the ability to reason with others very well by unknown ways. However, with Gaap in full control, Troy looses his reasoning ability and instead has the ability to control Earth. Gaap has the power to control chunks of ground by will, and use it in a variety of ways, mostly to inflict pain and suffering to others.

4) Possessed

5) Evil

Also, I have a question: Is it possible for a possessed character to control the spirit within them if a specific events happens?

Yeah, probably. Possessed characters are just human's who are controlled by their spirit, but it's certainly welcome for people to sometimes regain control. Stricken have this trait, as they sometimes pass in and out of who's controlling their body and I'd believe possessed are in a similar situation (just that the spirit is more dominant that the person). So long as it works, I'm sure it would... well, work. :)
