Spoiler:
Background:
MEGAFaker© are one of the largest gaming companies in the world. In this parallel universe, they have successfully displaced all other game developers and completely monopolise the market. Their chairman, not satisfied with the the lack of competition, has embarked on a new aim - to create the ultimate gaming experience.

A game where your freedom is on the line.

The megalomaniac's wishes came true when a budding games engineer, Professor O. Akerberry, proposed a social experiment - utilising the company's newest project, Pocket-Link, and putting some unwilling students through their paces.

Pocket-Link, or PokéLINK as it was more commonly known, was a rehash of a failed classic - Pocket Monsters. However, instead of the old single player version, the professor had adapted it to form an online, multiplayer experience.

The game, rigged up in every cell-like room, pushed the players to complete task after task. Working together, and sometimes competing, for prizes and luxuries. The prisoners have little choice but to play - without levelling they are refused food and water; only those that complete the game will walk free.

It didn't take long for MEGAFaker© to pick its targets. A nearby, international university was bustling with students - eight missing wouldn't cause much of a stir, and could go unnoticed for weeks. Advertisements were placed around the city, 'beta-testers needed!' 'we need the best!' - eventually, the necessary test subjects showed up.

With that, a new game was ready to begin.

Reward and Punishment:
For completing tasks and reaching goals the players can expect to receive a reward. There is always a choice for rewards, although the precise details are not known until you choose either way. The choice will always be between a real-life reward and an in-game reward.

RL rewards: New decorations for your room, personal items from home, room upgrades (bedding, lighting, space) or specially chosen gifts.

IG rewards: Pokémon evolutions, rare encounters, bonus items, move tutoring or baby pokémon.

After each gaming period; any player who takes part in a gaming session will be rewarded with one hour access to a communal room. Any prize you receive is considered your property, and as such you can use it as you like - some rewards can be kept back or given up.

Punishments are given out if your player refused to play, or to compensate for damage to MEGAFaker© property.

Playing the Game:
This roleplay is set across two dimensions - your cell room, the real world, and PokéLink, the online game. Your body in the virtual world is impervious to all damage, similar to the original Pokémon games.

Each sequence, normally akin to an important event, will have one or two main objectives. All main objectives need to be complete in order to get the basic reward. There are also several optional objectives you can do - these may reap further rewards, but should be completed after or during the main objective.

i.e. Do the main first, then early finishers have extra to do.

Between sequences there will be time where the players can meet - provided they have behaved well. Therefore, although your physical body is locked in a room for a lot of the time, there will be very few moments where you are actually alone.

Signing up:
Please complete the sign up sheet below. Once you have filled in a sign-up you will be gifted with your avatar appearance, based on your colour selection and RL appearance.

Please be aware that the standard rules apply (listen to GM, no godmodding, no bunnying) and that this roleplay is rated T for teen.

Layla Riese



Gender:

Female

Age:

21



Favourite computer game:



League of Legends


Colour:




Teal

Appearance:



Layla is rather tall, standing at the impressive height of 5'9". Despite being the tallest among her friends, the young woman is ever so graceful in both her walking and her actions.She has long black hair that cascades all the way to her hips and a cute fringe that stops right above her mesmerizing blue-grey eyes.

Layla prefers sporty outfits and can be usually seen wearing white, sporty tank tops and short, pleated skirts, usually blue or teal to which she pairs thigh-length white socks. Her feet rest comfortably in a pair of either blue or teal sneakers, usually matching her skirt's colour. During the cold seasons, Layla pairs her outfits with a sporty blue coat and a white scarf.

The young woman is not a huge fan of accesories, the only one she can usually be seen wearing, being a gold necklace that she got as a gift from her late mother, back when she was twelve years old. The necklace is her most prized posession and she is always extremely careful not to missplace it.

Personality:



Up until her Mother passed away, Layla used to be an extremely cheerful girl that loved being around people. Since the deaths of her Mother, however, the girl prefered to look for comfort in sports and video games. Nowadays, she is a quiet girl that would much rather spend her time alone than surrounded by people. She hates crowds and noisy places.

Though solitary, Layla is kind-hearted and would go to great lengths to help a person in need, especially if she holds them in high regards in her heart.

Online, the young woman is a complete opposite of the every-day Layla. She's confident and open to talking to people. While gaming, she can get daring and aggressive, to the point of ruthlessness. She feels that she can express herself better in the Online world rather than the real world, because "people in the online world don't feel sorry for you" as she likes to say. She has yet to find someone to prove her wrong.

History:



Layla was an only child, being raised by a single Mother. Her relationship with her mother was a special one, the two being the bestest of friends. When her Mother was diagnosed with lung cancer, a twelve years old Layla was devastated. She entered a state of denial that reached its peak the moment her beloved Mother closed her eyes for the last time. After her Mother's death, the girl focused mostly on sports and vowed to become a great athlete, to honor her late Mother's memory.

Prior to PokéLink, Layla spent most of her time training, studying and gaming. She finished school with almost perfect scores and got a Scholarship in Sports Studies at a renowned University, pushing hard towards her goals. She, once again, worked hard towards great scores, joined competitions and various clubs and activities that she considered could help her reach her goals. In her second year at University, Layla travelled the country with a group of students from the same year, as part of a project that had the sole goal of promoting sports and outdoor activities among children and teenagers. It was then that she heard of a new game, PokéLink that was under development. The game piqued her interest so, about a year later, when she recieved a newsletter about PokéLink being in need of Beta Testers, she couldn't resist the urge of signing up, thinking that it could be a "good way to spend the holidays".

Oh man, this is what I've been looking for. You have no idea how long I've been waiting for someone to post something like this, with open spots. You'll have my SU tonight.

EDIT: SU is finished. I know nothing of coding so I can't make it pretty.

Name: Rosalie Falk


Age: 19

Favourite computer game: Fable III


Colour: Light green


Appearance: Standing at an unimpressive 5’0”, Rosalie is easy to overlook. Overall she comes off as soft and harmless. Her most notable detail is that the gene for any type of pigmentation seems to have passed her by entirely. Fair skin that does not tan well leaves her highly susceptible to sunburns. Her hair falls just beneath her shoulders and is white blonde, such that the yellow in her hair is only easily visible in the light. It is kept down most of the time, save for immediately after she showers while she dresses and readies herself for the day.

Rosalie’s facial features are soft, with a bit of roundness to her cheeks. She does wear light makeup, but she intentionally goes for the “no makeup” look, except for around her eyes. Subtle color there is used to make them the focus of attention.

Her clothing choice is simple, consisting mainly of ballet flat type shoes, well-fitted jeans, and girly tees that hug her small frame. Even with her choice of tight shirts she doesn’t appear particularly curvy, though her body is certainly feminine in its structure. Dainty as she is, she recognizes that too much curve would look disproportionate on her. Although she chooses to wear a variety of colors she generally prefers pastels and other light hues, particularly blues and greens.


Personality: Rosalie’s personality is more than big enough to make up for her small size. In her interactions with other people she’s quiet and soft spoken, and almost always very polite. However her words are often laced with double meaning. When necessary she has no qualms about showing her teeth and making threats to keep herself and her friends and family safe. To an unsavvy observer she would seem as though she were genuinely concerned with the well being of others, even strangers, and that she would sacrifice her own safety and comfort for them. On the contrary, she tends to use her nonthreatening appearance to her advantage. She’ll pick out the most altruistic individual in a group and befriend them in hopes that they’ll benefit her in some way. Rarely does she feel any guilt over this. Of course, this is only in situations of high stress. In daily life she truly is kind and she often comes off as motherly.

Usually she makes friends easily and quickly. In daily life she enjoys the companionship of others and would much rather have someone with her as she goes through tasks such as shopping and housework, and she would rather work in a group than by herself. While she’s fully capable of being alone she simply prefers not to, which is why she is more than happy to own three of the neediest cats possible. If solitude were forced upon her rather than made a choice, she would likely not handle it quite as well.

Brief History: Rosalie was Lisa and Robert Falk’s second child. She lived with her parents and her elder brother, Avery, in a town with a population of roughly 90,000. Her childhood was unremarkable. There was no great conflict between her parents and her relationship with them was strong. As their only daughter and youngest child, she was babied somewhat and she rarely wanted for anything. She and Avery were fairly close, and he was the one that introduced her to gaming. They played everything from side scrollers to first person shooters together, but Rosalie found that she greatly preferred RPGs. Gaming was not so much a real hobby to her as a fleeting fancy, however, and for the most part she only cared to do so when she could play with a friend.

During her senior year of high school she began researching universities and ended up deciding to go to one of the best international universities in the country. Her first year involved her mainly joining clubs and participating in campus activities while she tried to decide what she wanted to do with her life. She still had no idea what she wanted to do as her second year began and she could only be undecided for so long. With that in mind she broadened her horizons and pushed her limits and comfort zones to test different things. This is what spurred her to answer the advertisements placed just about everywhere she went declaring a need for beta testers for a new video game. She remembered how much she used to enjoy playing with Avery, and although she was little more than a casual gamer she thought she might like it.

Strikit! Thanks for joining :3 ACCEPTED

Rosalie's Avatar Appearance:
The main difference between Rosalie's physical and digital appearance are the associated accessories. Holstered to her waist, Rosalie carries a light green pouch and a pastel blue Pokétch strapped to her favoured wrist. Her in-game clothing matches herfavoured attire - jeans and a pale-green, girly t-shirt.

It's up to you how 'girly' it is. I don't want to impose flowers or cute puppies on to your character, lmao. Links in the text for visuals! Thanks for joining.

Name: Amelia "Amy" London

Age: 20

Favourite computer game: the Bioshock games

Colour: Blue
Appearance: See to the right for a picture. Amy is a thin girl, standing at 5'6". In real life, she wears a white t-shirt under a blue sweatshirt whose sleeves she often rolls up a bit (see here, without the "i shower naked" lol). She also wears dark indigo slim jeans together with slightly dirty white Converse shoes. Her hair is somewhat wavy and reddish color, reaching down just beneath her breasts. A striking detail, apart from her blazing hair, is her large blue eyes, almost violet in tone. She wears quite a lot of mascara and make-up around her eyes, as if to utilize her natural looks as well as she can. Her skin isn't as touchy in the sun as the skin of many redheads are, but she is very prone to getting freckles in her face and on her arms. Amy lacks any kind of piercings - she isn't against piercings in general, she just hasn't found the need for them herself. She does, however have a large tattoo over the back of her shoulders, featuring birds in flight.

Personality: Amy loves the thrill. The thrill of doing something forbidden, of being somewhere you didn't think you'd ever be, of daring something that should scare her, of being in love, of traveling... The thrill of anything, really. When her stomach flutters and adrenalin starts pumping, that is when she finds herself. The thrill leads her, the thrill sometimes controls her. As she grew older and enrolled in college to become a journalist and writer, she began to make an effort to restrain herself. Impulsive doesn't work in the adult world. But the constant urges are always there.

She comes across as an overly curious but often calm girl, who can surprise you either by suddenly running off somewhere or by staying when anyone else would have run off. Improbable, unpredictable. She has a thing for the geeky parts of modern day culture and can eagerly take part in conversations about superheroes, magic, aliens or the greatness of the internet. Amy is an integrated part of several online fandom forums and most often goes online on her smartphone - she doesn't like sitting still at a computer, after all. Something she lacks though, is a friend who really knows her. With her fleeting nature, she never lets someone in too deep and prefers to be a nice, shallow breeze in the lives of her friends. At least that has worked well so far.

Brief History: There isn't any tragedy hidden in the past of Amelia London. No strange upbringing, no weird occurrences. Just a normal life with a normal family. Her father and mother were both working class, leading comfortable but unexciting lives in a tiny, comfortable, unexciting British town. Amy's big sister and big brother were 4 and 5 years older than her, respectively, and had both already gone off to college in other parts of the world by the time Amy reached the age of 19. They had great dreams, great ideals. Amy lived in a dream world instead. She loved gaming, reading and writing and had so many ideas buzzing around in her head at all times. But it didn't stay there. Whenever her parents couldn't find her, they shrugged and assumed she had run off to the countryside again. She often took long walks, music in her ears, painting or writing in odd places on the hills, in the forest, even in the churchyard. And one day, she came up to them and announced that she would be leaving as well. Leaving town, leaving this life behind. They had seen that day coming, of course, since both her siblings were already off.

Amy enrolled in an international university, studying journalism and partaking in as many college life events as she could - without really joining any clubs or groups. She had her groups online, and so people learned to recognize her as the smiling redhead on the parties and in the corridors, but they often forgot her name. And one day, one fateful day, she saw the advert for beta testers of a new game...

Amy's Avatar Appearance: Amelia's usual attire remains in the digital world, however her bird-like tattoo is now broadcast on the back of her royal blue sweater. A blue and silver Pokétch is firmly strapped around her wrist and a small rucksack (of matching colours) helps her store equipment.

Name: Laura Poffman

Age: 21

Favorite Computer Game: Saints Row The Third

Color: Red

Appearance: Laura stands at a height of about 5'7" with a slender body build. She has messy, chocolate-brown hair which she keeps on the short side, just reaching to the base of her neck. When the bangs are not partially obstructing a view of them, one can make out that she has piercing, dark, emerald-green eyes. Laura has a fair skin complexion, being neither too dark or too pale. She has several piercings, including two on each ear, one in her left eyebrow, and one in her navel.

In terms of clothing, Laura tends to dress a bit on the rebellious side, finding herself dressing in a more boyish manner on most occasions. She tends to wear various tank tops the most, usually wearing them on the shorter side to show off her navel ring. Laura likes to wear her pants in a more loose and baggy style, her favorite pair being a pair of camo pants that were handed down to her by her older brother. Laura always seems to wear a matching, black, leather bracelet and belt that have metal studs on them for decoration. Her favorite pair of shoes is a worn pair of black Chuck Taylor sneakers that have red stitching and lining. Laura is never seen without her favorite black choker around her neck.

Personality: Stubborn and rebellious, Laura seems to have a short fuse... something has landed her in trouble on more than one occasion in her life. She seems a bit restless, never willing stand still if she can help it. Laura has no problem when it comes to speaking her mind, not caring in the slightest bit who it may offend in the process. She is often one to act without thinking, preferring to approach her problems with a brawn over brains solution. When interacting with others, Laura is cautious to not let many truly get to know her too well. Previous exchanges with most her age have caused her to be slightly on edge, as if she thinks that people will have made up their mind about her shortly after their meeting. She hates relying on others, feeling that it will make her come off as a weaker person.

Brief History: Laura was born the youngest of three children by Mark and Samantha Poffman. Her parents never seemed to get along, causing the two to finally get a divorce while Laura was still a young girl, no older than three or four years old. Mark took custody of Laura's oldest brother, Tim, and the two moved away to another city. Visits from her father and oldest brother were few and far between, usually only occurring on birthdays and holidays. Laura remained behind, being raised by her mother and with her second oldest brother, Jacob. The ramifications of the divorce seemed to effect Laura more than her siblings or parents. Throughout her middle and high school career, she had a habit of getting into fights, ditching classes, and simply getting into trouble. Her mother tried her best to help her, but whenever she tried to figure out what the cause of her daughter's misbehavior was, the girl would only push her away further. When starting the eleventh grade, Laura eventually found a way to express herself through the art of music. The girl would often spend her free time playing an electric guitar she received from her father one year for Christmas, even going as far as to try and write her own songs.

Upon graduating high school, roughly two years late due to her grades and performance during high school, Laura was not sure just what to do with herself. The thought of attending a university did not really thrill the girl. She felt that she would rather try and pursuit her dream of becoming famous with her own heavy metal band. However the girl knew that things would be tight financially, and Laura would eventually decide to attend the local university, if only to maybe find some talent or like minds in the school to join her. She figured that if worse came to worse, she could always grab an easy major or something of the sort to support her while she chased her own dream. It was while doing just that that the girl spotted a flyer advertising the need of beta testers for a new video game. A sense of fondness came over Laura, as she had often remembered times that when she was not playing guitar in her room, that she would often goof around with video games, usually playing some sort of RPG or a survival horror title. Figuring that it could be a fun way to pass some time and relive the past, Laura decided to give the beta test a try.

Name: Saya Kobayashis
Age: 21
Favourite computer game: League of Legends
Colour: Dark Red

Appearance: [Click] She's about 5'6 weighing in about 120 lbs, which isn't bad for a girl in her height, for her body isn't too skinny, nor too husky. Along with 5 slim fingers on each hand, and 5 slim toes on each of her feet, she has lightly tanned skin along with short black hair that reaches to the top of her shoulders. She also has light blue eyes, a fairly small nose, and a fairly-sized mouth. Saya is a pretty hygienic person when it came to her body. Her fingernails aren't too big, as she regularly cuts them every now and then when she feels that they're just too big, and her skin is overall pretty smooth from conditioning regularly as well.

When it comes to clothing, Saya isn't very modern with her clothing, however, she regularly still loves to wear what she thought was most comfortable for her. Her family traditionally wears the traditional Japanese dress of a miko. It consists of a pink jacket with sode-kukuri (cords) through the sleeves and open shoulders. She also wears strings called muna-himo which are attached to each lapel and tied in front to keep the garment closed. Natsumi's kosode would be very much like a modern Kendo or Naginata Keikogi, with the sleeve fitting somewhat closely like a modern loose shirt and extending slightly past the wrist. The slits on the side of her hakama, and the openings at the sleeves and shoulders of her hitoe (jacket) showed the white kosode she sported. Natsumi also wears a bright red nagabakama (a very long hakama), which includes the small board on the lower back. Finally, Natsumi wears common tabi (socks) and black sandals. It's all sported by a blue Obi, or belt, over all her other garments.

Personality: Saya is pretty warm-hearted, gentle, and polite. Conversing with people is no problem with her, as she was always interested on what other people had to say, because she always believed that there was always a certain degree of knowledge that comes from the wisdom of others' experiences. On the other hand, while she may be an actress, her acting skills are pretty poor, and she is really, really clumsy in general. Slipping, falling down on the floor are just a few common occurrences with her, but, she never really let her bad luck bother her that much.

A really irritable side of her is that she's pretty sassy when it came to things that people say that she disagrees with. Perhaps this is just a habit of her, but it happens. She also often gets jealous of other people's successions, or maybe other personal things like love, ability, or otherwise, and her jealousy can often misguide her to push her beyond her abilities. On the other hand, she also has a strong sense of justice when it came to helping people do the right thing, when they have done a bad thing. Sometimes people say that her sense of justice can be misguided, as in, "what people won't know, wouldn't kill them", but, Saya did have a habit on insisting that one should make amends for bad deeds.

A weird side of her is that she's quite the eccentric when it comes to the occult, meaning she believes in ghosts, spirits and so on. She doesn't have a natural fear of them, in fact, she loves talking about the different ghosts, and spirits, in which in this case, she refers them as 'yokai', as it was a term used in her family. She has different waring charms for these yokai, as she believed that they would drive out the evil spirits from people, and only replace it with the good spirits. Of course, she would naturally look weird in the end, but, she only believed it was for the good of others, and for the spirits.

Brief History: Saya was born in a small part of Okinawa, Japan, where cherry blossom trees grew during the season. She was born in a fairly small family: her mother, her uncle, her grandfather, and her grandmother, in a household where they lived in traditional means. Saya lived a simple life, until she turned 10 years old, when she became interested in performances. She joined as an actor on recreation of the play, Cinderella, where she got the lead role of Cinderella. Of course, preparing for this role was a tough step with her. She was really clumsy when it came to remembering her lines, as well as trying to stand up without slipping on her Cinderella dress. Soon she became more and more discouraged, until she got a visit from her family. She was given a magatama, a charm that was used to ward off evil spirits in which her mother explained that the thing that was holding Saya back was the evil spirit in her heart - the spirit of doubt. Finally, Saya racked up the courage to perform in the play, where she was praised for her performance. From then on, she kept the magatama and always returned to performing for audiences.

Despite her family living in traditional means, modern technology wasn't uncommon with the Kobayashis, as they still liked to use cell phones, cars, and even computers. Saya often loved to go on the computer after a hard performance, where she got to unwind to play video games with her friends. Finally, one day when she turned 21, she found out about the PokeLink MMO. It was time for her to play a game she hasn't experienced before...

Amelia and Laura are accepted! Ducklighter you are reserved .

Amelia's Avatar Appearance:
Amelia's usual attire remains in the digital world, however her bird-like tattoo is now broadcast on the back of her royal blue sweater. A blue and silver Pokétch is firmly strapped around her wrist and a small rucksack (of matching colours) helps her store equipment.
Laura's Avatar Appearance:
Laura's vest and baggy pants have been replicated into the digital world, her vest taking on a deep red colour. Her wrist, adorned with a leather bracelet, also features a red and black Pokétch. A black large, shoulder bag is draped across her.

Layla is accepted!

One spot left for reserving!~ Aiming to get the IC up Sunday. Might be a tad ambitious, but it means those who are ready can start, since the first section is an introductory segment.

Reserve me a spot please. I'm done with exams so I've got plenty of free time.


Nathan "Nate" Harris | Male



Age

19

Favorite computer game

Elsword Online

Color

Black

Appearance


Practicing sports ever since he was a little child came with some benefits. Nathan was standing at quite the tall 6'1" which was kinda impressive for his age seeing as he was still gaining some few inches. He was also noticeably big on the muscle side, without him looking like some version of the Hulk. This also didn't stop him from having some sort of relative ease moving around. His hair was as black as his eyes, something he seemingly inherited from his deceased mother. His skin, that he doesn't like show, is kinda pale seeing as he doesn't tan easily.

For his clothing, Nathan prefers dark colors such as black and gray and deeply despises brilliant colors. He usually wear his black jacket, the only gift he ever received from his father along with either a gray or black shirt underneath. For pants, he'll be often seen wearing jeans that are black and he uses sneakers for shoes, with them being either black or gray as the rest of his clothing.

Personality

Born to an abusive father and having his mother die shortly after his birth, Nathan's childhood wasn't exactly ideal. Getting beaten and humiliated by his father left some marks on his personality. He is not a trusty person, always fearing about getting betrayed and stung in the back. Thus this makes it hard for him to show his care for others when in reality he does like the people who earned his trust. He is also rebellious and aggressive, he won't stand people annoying him or the few persons he care for. He'll go extremely berserk to save himself or others.

Pretty self-centered, Nathan has learned to put himself before others for his own good. You'll rarely see him caring for someone else while neglecting his own self. He's also pretty arrogant, boasting about his every achievement for everyone willing to hear him. Nate rarely cares about those who aren't close to him seeing as he won't hesitate to crush them, as he likes to say, to achieve his own greatness. Being a competitive person pushes him to always surpass himself and as he uses this phrase as his motto, he won't rest until he becomes the best at his category.

Brief History

Nathan's childhood wasn't exactly what someone would call typical. Born in Arizona, he didn't grow to see his mother seeing as she died from the complications of giving birth to him. His father, who couldn't move on from this incident, put all the blame on his poor son and began to beat him and put him down as much as he could. School was the only escape for the little boy and he gave his all at it, aways nearly getting perfect grades, hoping that would calm his father and make him proud. But no, his dad always found something that could be ameliorated, pushing Nathan to search for perfection all the time in all the categories. Thus he entered his school's football squad, as soon as he hit the required age, only to become their best player for all the league. He attracted the eyes of many recruiters of prestigious universities.

He ended up getting a scholarship to study Game Designing at a renowned university. In the same year, his father passed away. Despite him being abusive, he was the only family Nathan had that was still alive and he couldn't help but feel lonely after his death. He began to close himself in a world where video games and striving to perfection were his only goals. He entered the university and began to learn game designing, something he liked ever since he was a wee child. Of all the genres, he preferred the MMO games, liking their multi-social abilities. So when he saw a lot of ads for a new MMO video game, called Poke-Link, searching for beta-testers, he didn't hesitate a bit before applying.
