*RP OPEN FOR CHARACTER RESERVATION EVEN AFTER IT HAS BEGUN. FEEL FREE TO RESERVE A CHARACTER ANYTIME IN OOC*

You are one of the kingdom's greatest heroes, your feats of heroism range from defeating the forces of darkness to slaying countless dragons. Blessed with awesome powers by the goddess, you are the strongest in the world.

After years of your heroic efforts, the realm is at peace... too peaceful, you've become bored of the easy life. If this was an MMORPG, you'd be an end game player, spending your days standing around towns and buying new outfits. One day, while you are lazing around town checking your gold balance and rummaging through your inventory, a blinding light appears...

The goddess is calling you.

You kneel down as she gives you your new mission:

"A new universe has been created but the forces of darkness which you have fought off is corrupting it, will you accept the task of traveling to that universe and fighting off the darkness once more? You will soon find out that the enemy isn't like the ones you've fought before. The enemy exists within the system itself; the darkness has possessed many of the ruling members of society. The police, government, corporations, and organized crime syndicates have been taken over by the forces of darkness; their one goal is to sap out all the energy out of the planet and destroy it. You must stop them, or else they will use this world as a gateway into yours."

You don't recognize many of the words the goddess used. Corporations? Police? Planet? Despite not knowing any of this, you accept; it is becoming boring around these parts after all. The goddess has always given cryptic messages after all, just part of the thrill of being a hero.

The first thing you notice about this new world is how dirty the air is, even the most crowded cities in your world did not smell this bad. Is it night or day? The sky is dark but the city you've been transported to is as bright as day. The structures are so grand and reach for the stars, yet gives off an air of poverty. The people are wearing such strange and simple clothes... This world gives off a strange vibe and you feel distant from the goddess's warmth...

The name of the world you've come to is Throst, the capital is Brightside.

Theme Song

Cutting to the chase, you are one of the classic RPG class characters, living in a fantasy RPG world. Having conquered everything in that world, you are bored. Then you are called by the goddess which gives you your magical powers to fight the forces of darkness in a different universe. This new universe in question is what you may call cyberpunk, imagine a Ghost in the Shell type setting where everything is very futuristic with androids, assault rifles, computers, skyscrapers, the internet, and etc. Basically take someone from the 14th century and plopped them into the 30th century.

The city where you are transported to is the capital, also the most populated city in the world. Here the upper class live higher up in the sky scrapers, while the poor live down below closer to ground level. What's on the ground? Water, due to climate change the world flooded over and the people are forced to live above the ground. Despite all the pollution, the water remains fairly pristine, perhaps it is the work of the goddess? The water gives off strange energy which large corporations use to provide energy to the city.

Refer to the picture below for an idea of how the city looks like. The culture and architecture there is predominantly oriental.


Image


This RP is character driven towards one goal: eradicating the darkness corrupting the city of Brightside that is draining the life out of the planet. How you get there is up to you, but remember, it is not feasible to do alone and you must work together with your fellow heroes. The goddess will guide you through your journey(so check the ooc often!)

Reserve your character in OOC! Bold the character you're reserving. Also add a faceclaim when reserving.
Heroes

Heroes are blessed with magical abilities, equipment, and items. Just imagine them as a character straight out of a RPG like Final Fantasy, Maple Story or Skyrim. Upon entering Throst, the new world, the rules have changed and their magical abilities, and items have very restricted use due to the strange flow of energy. It appears that the mana which you use in the old world is the same energy used to power everything in this world. Anti-mana equipment exists in this universe, and physical bullets infused with mana will tear through magical armor so be careful. Heroes still have their powers, just very weakened versions; what was a giant rain of meteors a mage would cast becomes a single piece of space debris with a very long cool down. Try to adapt to this world, because you will be here for a while...

Toggle Rules

  • Check OOC frequently

  • Communicate with other players, it's best if you invite a friend you like RPing with to join you(I will make spots for your friends)

  • The enemy will always overwhelm your character if you fight alone so there's really no point in godmodding. You could easily overcome a small group of enemies, but taking out a whole mission on your own is impossible, and you will die :)

  • Have fun, this can be a serious RP, or a nice and fun one. Have your character explore his or her new world.

  • Make sure you can post frequently... RPs die because people get tired of waiting sometimes...

  • Suggestions are always welcome in OOC or via PM. This is my first RP and I know it's extremely flawed hahaha....

  • Anime, manga, or drawing faceclaim while reserving please!

  • Instant message me if possible, that is the best way to contact me.

  • 200 Or more words per post.

  • I'll make up more rules when I think of them...

Adelaide blinked several times in confusion when a child's voice came from the man's arm. It was obviously a little girl who affectionately referred to the man as daddy, after explaining that her name was Mabel, Adelaide determined she was some sort of AI. Her chipper disposition reminded her allot of the AI on her phone Nori, however Adelaide was sure the Mabel was much more advanced. She didn't understand why or how she took over, for he man whom Mabel had said was named Takezo.

"Um... okay.", Adelaide covered her eyes as she was told to do. However, she really didn't know why she had asked her to. There weren't any bright lights the Adelaide could see. But when she uncovered them she watched a group of the enemies sputter out and hit the floor with a thud... like they had suddenly lost power. Adelaide was still in a bit of shock as she was quickly scooped up in Takezo's arms bridal style, well Mabel did using Takezo's body. As they began to run around the corner, Adelaide couldn't help but wonder how and why Mabel had to take over for Takezo. What was so drastic that he would allow the AI to take over like she did? They moved very quickly, faster then a normal human being that's for sure. Takezo suit obviously gave him abilities that made him almost superhuman.

When they had put a good amount of distance between the things, they stopped again. Mabel instructed Adelaide to hop onto Takezo's back and hold on tightly. She nodded doing her best to hop up on the taller man's shoulders hoping she wasn't to heavy. She wrapped her arms around him tightly.

"Mabel..., do you know what these things are that are killing people... I've never seen anything like them before?"

She didn't know if Mabel knew or not, but from the way that Takezo had been fighting them before, she figured that she would have a better idea than Adelaide did. As they grew closer to the roof Adelaide could hear what sounded like some sort of aircrafts. It made Adelaide feel like there was hope they would make it out of this alive, even with the sound of bullets hitting metal she was beginning to calm and feel a little more relaxed.

Her blade remained unwavering as she pointed it up the stairs, ready to catch any of the five knights who may have been dumb enough to give chase. However, the incoming fire faded away. She figured the knights were focusing their attention on the larger vessels that were approaching. She knew that if the knights were smart, they would have one of them keep an eye on the door. The last thing Cordelia wanted to do is telegraph her position again, else it make her actions more predictable. She decided to wait for whoever was approaching that her chi detected.

When she looked back once more, Cordelia spotted a man and a girl when they rounded a corner to ascend the steps to the rooftop access. Cordelia held up a free hand towards them to silently indicate them to stop. Her left hand kept the sword pointed upstairs, away from the incoming individuals.

The first two appeared to be a little girl and a man with some kind of prosthetic arm. Cordelia had never seen technology like this before. This world was very strange indeed, but the monk knew her fists proved stronger than the advanced-looking armour of the knights she had beaten so far. These two did not look like the soldiers Cordelia had fought. The girl was clearly a non-combatant, while the man’s armour looked vastly different. Unlike the bulky armour of the knights, this man’s armour was relatively tight-fitting. Considering he’s escorting a girl, it was safe to assume they were not on the same side as the knights who were attacking the approaching transport vessels.

The second appeared to be some kind of soldier in a suit not unlike the knights, but with a distinct lack of heavy metal plating or circuitry. The visor design was also very different. If he hadn't mentioned something about an evacuation, Cordelia would've thought the third individual was one of the knights.

“There are five knights lying in wait up there,” she told the non-knights, “I can’t reach them with their long-ranged weapons pinning me here.”

She then heard a scream coming from somewhere on the rooftop through the slightly more open door on the roof access. By the Goddess, did the knights hit an innocent up there?

“If you have anything long-ranged, I need at least a full second of cover,” she told the armoured individual who was carrying the girl.

Character Portrait: Markus

#, as written by Citadel
Markus busted through the big, blast doors leading to the street level, his eyes shooting up to the large buildings that surrounded him. He could hear the gunfire from the roof, half-expecting it to be perfectly honest. As he considered his next move, several armored vehicles approached him from both sides of the road. Infantrymen jumped out of the vehicles, pointing their guns toward Markus. Several Swordsmen were with them as well. Markus slowly reached for his sword and removed it from his back, cracking his neck as he did so. He wasn't a fool. If he took them head on he would be dead. But, he was just an idiot enough to try something insanely stupid. Dropping his sword as if meaning to give up, Markus hid his left hand beneath his cloak, raising the right one up in surrender. Knowing this would only make them hesitate a brief moment before opening fire, Markus called upon his shield in his right hand and pulled his left out to reveal another black javelin. He threw the dark energy at the closest armored vehicle, causing a massive explosion that chained to the other vehicles. Markus found himself flying backwards, hitting hard against the building and falling to his knees. The shield took the brunt of the hit, but Markus still felt quite a bit of pain.

The shield disappeared and Markus limped over to his sword while his regenerative abilities slowly began to heal his wounds. They were significantly slowed down, even the smallest scars taking much longer than normal to fade away. Picking up the sword, Markus looked around at his handy work, several burning vehicles and bodies littering the ground around him. "I hope that was just enough to cause a distraction for the people on the roof. If only just." Markus looked over to see a survivor crawling toward his gun. Markus walked over and put his foot across the Corrupted's arm pressing down hard enough on it for the soldier to scream out in pain. "I have to give it to you. Whoever you are, you're strong enough to force me to get creative." Markus brought his sword down on the survivor. Markus is not one to kill someone who can't kill themselves. But, he couldn't predict this new enemy. If he left even one alive, it would definitely come back to bite him in the ass. He was sure of it. "Normally, I would just run forward swinging my sword at anything that moved. This has given me some more experience in tactical thinking. Maybe I will learn something from this world." Markus through his sword over his back and closed his eyes. Cordelia was on the roof, that he knew. He was having a hard time finding the right energy in this world. It was teeming with life and decay, making it difficult to center his mind on finding his target. After a few seconds he opened his eye and looked right. "Ashford. I'm not sensing anyone else. She isn't far. Its my best bet right now." With that, Markus began walking in the general direction he sensed her. It wasn't magic that this ability was routed in. It was more like his feral instinct, something predators are born with. In the other world it was a pretty useless trait, but here he found a use for it.
