The Lifelight: Story
The entire world is deserted. Yes, you heard me. I shall tell you why:

People have discovered a way to enter their own personal dream worlds- they can be whoever they want, wherever they want. These inhabitants are all in the chambers of pyramid-shaped "Lifelight" buildings held in the center of the city. Lifelight is a virtual reality world; a computer that gives people's desires the appearance of being real. Almost everyone on the planet is in it, living out their own perfect lives. Lifelight, a program where everyone can exist in their own dreams, but only now, dream can be reality. Lifelight is paradise.

Each person experiencing this virtual world is experiencing what the people call a "jump." Their bodies lie in stasis while their minds escape to this dream realm. But because Lifelight is so perfect, hardly anyone leaves. No more food is being made.

Our world is dying.

There is only one way to stop the Lifelight. I have placed a "Reality Bug" into the program. This virus preys on your fears to make the "jump" imperfect. (For example, in a jump where you would normally win a basketball game and become hero of the school, the Reality Bug forces unexpected events. The coach would, by chance, experience a heart attack, or you would score the winning goal, but fall in the process- breaking your leg.)
Yet, what I didn't realize is... that the bug is working far better than I could imagine.

The Reality Bug has become far too realistic; its use of fears to dilute the jumps has a placebo effect on people.
If they die in their fantasy, the death is real.

The population MUST be properly restored, or the real world will starve, but we can only do that once we rid the fantasies of this new threat.

It's up to you and I to stop this rapidly evolving virus and save mankind....

IMPORTANT: Read Before Posting (Yes, That Means Everything.)ATTENTION: Serious RPers only. This is because of the complexity of the plotline.
REQUIREMENTS: Please provide an APPLICATION or description of your character (age, appearance, personality) and also a -short- description of your Lifelight fantasy (this will be further elaborated in the story, so make it short and PG-13 rated.)
Applicants will be either allowed or rejected and I will PM you with my desicion. I want to see proper grammar and spelling, and I want to see some thought put into your posts.
NOTICE: THE RP WILL NOT BEGIN UNTIL I INFORM YOU WITH A NEW POST.
But I am allowing people to join the RP at any time. LATE APPLICANTS SHOULD PM ME WITH YOUR APPLICATION. (Late applications mean any applications that are to be given after I begin the RP.) BUT! Be aware that I will only accept late application if a character is needed or if I don't get enough people to join.
REMINDER: PLEASE BE REMINDED TO STATE YOUR WORST FEARS. THE REALITY BUG PREYS ON FEARS. IF I AM TO CREATE A SUITABLE OPPONENT, THEN I WILL NEED TO KNOW WHAT TO BASE IT ON.
ALSO: In this RP, certain parts of the plot can be made by the players. This means that at times, the MEMBERS are in control. Not me. I will explain this further when we get to the part, but to add to the fun, I've decided to let YOU control the story for a little while.
EXTRA: I'm trying to make this RP a little more than just a regular RP. I'll give members a couple surprises to make it seem like they're really part of this adventure. You'll see.. *winks*~

Lastly, questions can be PMed to me. Thank you.

RP Sample:

From Secrets Of Darkness:

Misty stayed alert while sneaking upon the random buildings of Pallet, she saw some spell driven cultist. " Try to divert attention" She mumbled to her group as she kept going, keeping low and quiet and then Snap! "Sh|t" Misty curses as she stepped on a large twig, and as if it was an alert about twelve cultist started to surround them, almost moaning as they sluggishly raised large metal rods or bats. Misty nodded at her team and pulled out her thompsan, she pulled the trigger and almost dropped the machine gun as it unleashed an unholy spray of bullets onto the targets in front of her. Ratatatatatata the sound was deafning and her ears were starting to ache as the figures flew back, blood dribbling from several bullet holes in each one as they crumpled. Misty pulled her finger off the trigger and the sound instantly stopped, Thank god she thought to herself as she looked at the big ass pile of bodies.

"Move out!" Misty yelled as she kept going, while she was running she switched the magizines out for her thompsan. This was going to be a long night.

Arcana Tower

Dillon rubbed an orb made of crystal, and smiled. " Aww yes... Cain and Sol have made it to the destination, though it looks like Cain isn't coping as well as I thought as he would." He mumbled deeply and then grimaced, My children are dying though but his grimace was replaced with a bitterly sweet smile, They're indispencable though. He thought to himself slightly chuckling. " Master, you shouldn't have sent a boy for a mans job" a dark voice interupting Dillon's thought. " Do not worry Lord James. They are indispencable, no great loss." Dillon said, his voice was smoothly sour.

The door burst open without warning as medium sized caucassian bust through, obviously excited about something. Dillon frowned at the interuption, " Lord Dillon! The Magician wishes to send you a mess-" Dillon cut the man off. " Did I say you could come in? Did you knock? Obvious such manners can't be accepted." Dillon grumbled as he clenched his fist-
and the mans right eye exploded. Blood started to dribble down his face as he screeched in pain, " Shut up!" James yelled as he ripped the man throat out, cartillage and the gleaming shine of bone as his throat exposed, the man gave a final blood filled cough as he fell to the ground. Dillon smiled at James " Thank you. I'll dispose of this nuisence." Dillon said grinning as the body and blood disapeared. " We have buisness to attend to." Dillon said his voice fading.

AJ was waiting for the answer he wanted, the reason for the mans apearance when he remembered something. " Barry, where is that Sandslash?" He asked anxious, Barry replied with a shug. " Damn, where'd he go." AJ mumbled looking around

'What? Where am I?' Joe muttered to himself
A deep laugh echoed from the other side of the dark room, Joe looked around, only to see darkness.
'Whos there?!' Joe shouted at the darkness, as he continued to look around Joe felt a sharp pain in his stomach
'Argh!' Joe screamed as he grabbed his stomach.
'What... have... I.. done... to... deserve... this' Joe breathed heavily, still on his knees in the darkness.
'Everything' said the voice
'Everything?! EVERYTHING?' Joe shouted as he stood up, suddenly Joe was hit hard in the legs by what seemed like metal, but Joe couldn't see anything. His leg's crippled and he fell into a crumpled heap, Joe felt what seemed like a boot on his back, quickly, Joe grabbed the leg and tightened his grip.
'What!?' shrieked the voice from behind Joe, 'You! You shouldn't have any strength left'
'I know who you are know, its you, YOU KILLED HIM' Joe shouted as he slammed the man onto the floor, there was a crack, and then a deadly silence. Joe stumbled across the room, confused and dazed, fumbling around in the darkness.

RP Sample:
Zorba looked out at the rippling waves. He noticed a ship approaching their island, a mile or so away. He couldn't make out the flags though: it seemed like the ship kept them up. Zorba was a bit worried by this, but continued to look on. The ship drew closer.
Gamba, a watchman, looked out through a telescope. He could tell that there were at least 200 men aboard the ship, but he, too, could not see any flags. Zorba ran up to him. 'Gamba! Can you see any colors on that approaching ship?'
'No.. I can't,' replied Gamba. All of a sudden, while the ship was about 200 meters from the shore, from the masts, a large flag rolled down. That flag, the Jolly Roger, sealed the people's doom.

'Pirates!!' Shouted Gamba. He ran to the alarm bell and rang it loudly. In seconds the militia was running down the shore, muskets and swords drawn, just to be shot down by the approaching buccaneers. The ship turned to its side, about 50 meters away, and fired a round of cannons, about ten, which took out the entire line of defense for San Salvador. One cannon headed straight for the watch tower. Zorba promptly leaped out, barely missing the demise of the structure. Zorba looked back. He realized what had just happened to his life friend, Gamba. He could see a small hole in the debris, just big enough to squeeze in. He could see Elin running down the beach. Wishing to help her as well, he quickly called to her.

[Don't we all just LOVE Pendragon, Miss Kura? I agree..I liked this one...(Continues Being Enigmatic with What he Knows)]

Name: Warren Kyter
Age: 17
Gender: Male
Appearance: Warren is highly athletic, and his figure shows it. He is rather of the "Football Quaterback Build" in that his muscle is lean and tight...or it was, and so it is maintained in the lifelight pyramid. Without using it in real life, however, his muscle is no more fantastic than any of the lifelight victims. He has a close-cropped head of brown hair, and deep green eyes. He usually wears casual clothing inlLifelight: jeans, t-shirts, that sort of thing. He prefers to stay comfortable in his clothing, says it makes him look better.
Personality: Warren could be called a slightly Headstrong person. He tends to see himself as able to do anything, and that nothing could stop him from doing it. He tends to be able to get along with just about anyone, regardless of that small oversight. He is, however, somewhat vain, and thinks that his looks are more important than they truly are.
Ideal Lifelight Experience: The reason Warren fled to lifelight was to escapes life's certianties...that being death. His lifelight consists of a slightly glorified life, but the only true changes to reality is the fact that his best friend and his girlfriend are no longer dead.
Worst Fear: Warren has aquired a fear of drowning recently.
RP Sample: (To Clarify Above...the story of why he Fled to lifelight aught to suffice)

The world is cruel, and its intentions even worse...

The car plunged, viciously. The road was wet, the rain was driving down in sheets, and the driver was drunk. The bridge railing was no match fro a Two Thousand Pound monster speed at it at slightly above sixty miles an hour. With a crunch it snapped, and only when the familiar shaking of a tire on solid ground was gone did any of them realize what had happened.

The water was ice cold.

The car sank quickly, all of its windows up, keeping the air inside. The deeper it went, however, the more it buckled, and before long, water smashed through windows, filling the cars interior and plunging it deeper into the water.

A boy, about seventeen in looks, struggled with a seatbelt. It wouldn't come off! With a jerk, it ripped free, and he swam as fast as he could out the window, begging for air. He soon heard something behind him ,and only then did he remember that there were two other people in the car. A girl, brown locks streaming behind her, swam up from the opposite window, and almost escaped, only to have a hand grab her from inside a car. The would be blonde, with sparkling blue eyes. The teen had a notion to dive back down and save them, but the surface was only a few meters away, and the car was sinking faster. He'd never catch them. With the lump in his throat growing, he swam up to the surface, and took a lungful of air. When he did, the red and blue lights were flashing, and the whirl of helicopters spun overhead. A hand roughly dragged him from the water...he didn't have the breath to tell them what was happening...

(I think thats good enough, right?)
