Hey Nideous I'm thinking of returning to RPing with a new idea but I'm wondering if it sounds stupid or not.
Basically the idea is that characters from earth are sucked into another universe separate from ours but completely dependent on it. That is because this universe is shaped by man's thoughts, dreams, myths, fantasies, and creative energy. The result of a universe being shaped like something like this. The universe is a flat universe but instead of having an endless void of space and planets like our universe has it is a never ending landmass that supports fantastic life, ecosystems, societies etc all sprouting from mans endless imagination. The landmass itself is separated into zones or... think of it like minecraft where pieces of land are separated into biomes or environments except this dimension (the Infinite is what i'll call it) will have many fantastic environments filled with life of all types never exactly repeating. Anyways the only constant in the infinite is something called the Crystal city which can always be seen from any point in the sky in the infinite.
The Crystal city is rumored to be where the most powerful being in the infinite rests and the goal of the role player is to make their way to the Crystal city (said to only be reachable by the worthy) so that they can get to the being that rules it to send them home.
Where the bulk of the story comes in is the journey. This RP will leave it up to the roleplayer to create the landscapes, monsters, races, magic, villains etc. that they encounter along the way. Thus this will be a sandbox RP in the truest respect, an adventure created by the RPers. Keep in mind this is a fantasy and the very nature of this world makes it where ANYTHING imaginable is possible.
I'm fine as always, my summer break is almost over so that sucks, but I'm having an okay time with life right now so it's all good. Sorry to hear that your father isn't getting any better but it's good to see you back in roleplaying.
That's good. I know I'm being kind of nosy but I read from your conversation with Fuyu that your dad has cancer and I want to offer you my condolences. I know how this is, my mother got breast cancer when I started middle school and though she survived it messed her up pretty bad. She can't even work right now because of a bad case of depression from lack of hormones. I hope your dad should be so lucky to survive and like I said, I offer you my sincerest condolences.
Well, the armor won't be "plate" per ce, it'll be an alien type of armor, but of course there will be slender armor, bulky armor etc. The RPer's magic will grow over time naturally due to the way they gain their powers but the weaponry will include an array of blasters, shotguns, swords, war hammers, cross bows, and weapons of every fashion that are summonable at will (through the magic of alien tech.) The armor of course will itself be a weapon as well.
Sounds awesome. And I know I would be the first to abandon the Knights and go my own way. Also I think the armor shouldn't be restricted only to Plate. it should be all kinds of armor. the nimble footed knight that weilds a fencing blade would be sol now would he not? Plate armor would hinder him, restricting his movements. And I think that our "Heroes" should start with very basic weaponry and they grow and gain new abilities as time goes on.
Alright I'll probably go with the personality motif in more ways than just the powers (you'll see what I mean.) Also expect it to be a while before the RP is posted, I need to regain my focus. I AM doing the RP, I've committed to it and love the idea and the limitless possibilities of it I just need to wait for my focus to return. I've had some awesome ideas for it though. The name of the villain is TSOAS (the sum of all sins) and as you can imagine it'll be portrayed as more of a force than a person that swallows universes whole and mutates everything inside into a demonic version of their inner evil transforming the universe into a living hell. The "good guys" in the story if you can call them that are an order of inter dimensional knights that have banded together from many different intelligent species both extant and horribly endangered (because TSOAS ate their world) under a mysterious king named Magnus. Magnus has successfully fought back against TSOAS's invasions on many worlds but when he saves a world he conquers it and puts it under a type of police state so that he can protect it from other invasions. Of course many people have said that he simply wants to conquer the universe. The thing is that he's done questionable things to keep his power over these universes and fight TSOAS (purges, destruction of TSOAS infected planets, violation of liberties such as free speech, assembly, press etc.)
In any event the story will start out with our world being devoured by TSOAS and the knightly order fighting it. In the end Earth loses and falls to the corruption and those who survive are drafted into the order. Knights can come from any race anywhere (except demons, they have a rule against demons) and are always clad in what look like a badarse suit of plate armor that's appearance varies based on personality (you like dragons, your armor might have a dragon theme to it, I believe in black and white morality my armor would be an awesome blend of the angelic and demonic etc.) Knights are armed with very advanced technology and magic depending on their personality.
