So, as Orias has recently pointed out to me, despite being based mostly on the manga we've been (due to my own error) running on the "soul system" of the anime. For sake of comparison:
Anime: Hunt down only Kishin Eggs, any Kishin Egg at any time; collect 99 Kishin souls and 1 Witch soul to become Deathscythe
Manga: Hunt down anyone on Shinigami's list, including mobsters like Al Capone and dangerous mercenary swordsmen like Mifune, (ORIAS: And monsters such as the Pharaoh and mummies that Kid fought, including other types of monsters such as Mosquito and Free) in addition to Kishin Eggs who are on the list; collect 99 souls and 1 Witch soul to become Deathscythe
So, with this distinction freshly in mind, I want to let players doing SRMs or running Missions know that Meisters and Weapons can pursue enemies who aren't Kishin Eggs, so long as it makes sense that the target would be on Shinigami's list. I'm also toying with the idea of creating an actual 'list' so people can contribute ideas for Missions / targets. You can also feel free to have "evil human" characters if you wish, though nothing really changes in terms of character progression between them and normal humans; an "evil human" has the option to become a Kishin Egg at any time by consuming a human soul, which can be done in a Mission or, if handled appropriately, as part of a regular RP thread.
So that's the skinny folks. We'll be using the manga's "soul system" from now on, since it opens up greater room for creativity and doesn't really subtract anything from the RP at large.
Feel free to discuss.
EDITED BY ORIAS: Just wanted to toss in an additional distinction. IGNORE ME~
