Introduction

The last thing you remember is burning alive. You were on a road trip with friends, but the your vehicle got struck by a truck and was set aflame. In the incident you blacked out, believe you would die. However when you wake up there is a computer like start up. When you finally can see, your head is resting on a table, but you cant move and you can't feel your body. You cannot talk no matter how hard you try. You see people in lab coats, two women and two men. On looks to be working on a face on a table across from you. Another is on computer near you.

"Let's see if everything is running normal." He says and types something into the computer. Suddenly, you automatically say "all functions normal" without intending to. The doctor who was working on the face picks it up and walks over to you. As he seems to be motioning the backside of the face towards you, you black out again.

The next thing you know is that you wake up in a bed in a hospital room. You can feel your body, but something feels different.

A doctor approaches you and says: "Welcome back to the land of the living. You had a bad accident and were practically burnt to a crisp, however most of your brain was still intact. There were however complications. Your DNA wasn't sufficient to grow a body like your old one, so we gave you a fully cybernetic one. On the papers it says you are male. But I am sorry to say that there was a mixup and you now have a female body instead. Your insurance will only pay for this body and the hospital isn't willing to pay another 100 grand for a new male body when you now have a perfectly functioning body. Instead we will give you 20,000 in compensation and maybe you might be able to get a male organ attached."

You are in one way angered but in another way thankful you hadn't died. But where on from here when you had an accidental sex change?

However one person in the vehicle didn't make it.

There is also another problem: You don't have all your memories. You don't really know who you are anymore, yet you still have learned skills. So you practically have a new identity.

Setting: Tokyo

Residence: As further compensation, you have received a small apartment in the New Tokyo residential district. Your friends have received apartments in the same building. Each apartment is fully furnished and has a large window with a small balcony.

Your body: Your female cyborg body isn't perfect as borders between parts are somewhat visible but aside from that you look pretty much like a real human. Your body can last about 50 years without a recharge but you will be reminded to recharge at 50%, 25%, 10% and 2%. If you fail to recharge on time, you will die. You now have the ability to download knowledge and your body is superhuman in terms of endurance, learning and perception while your maximum strength is comparable to a human who regularly does sports, however it is upgradeable. You require to at least eat supplements and regularly drink fluids so that your body can supply your brain with nutrients. Generally you and your friends still have 70 to 90% of your original brains (practically what could be saved or what is necessary). You can modify your body in various ways such as hair color, eye color, tech and some physical features.

Jobs: You and your friends can get part-time jobs as store clerks or hostesses or full time jobs as things like teachers, teaching assistants, technicians or office workers.

Starting point: Hospital lobby selecting starter clothes and about to get picked up to go to apartments.

Those kind of mods...As Tatsuda thought about nodding herself into a car...That actually sent a shiver up her spine...If she had an actual spine anymore to do so...Yeah, she was fine the way she was. “I’m fine the way I am. I rather not turn myself more machine than...machine. Never watched anime much, so I did not watch Ghost In The Shell. I was into sports, so I kept up with news and the sports channel.” Tatsuda replied with a shrug.

The idea of turning into a car or having like 40 fingers...Yeah She was not tech savvy, all she needed was nice food, nice drink and plenty of places to chill out and have fun.

"They probably have a mod so you can watch TV without having to use an external device. Like either an implant or something you can see in your eyes." Aoi said. "Come on. Let us check it out." She then went into the store. Lots of things on shelves with descriptions. Everything from better eyes to inbuilt game consoles and memory extension. The prices were fairly affordable too.

Kali agreed with Tatsuda, though then again few add-ons could be fun…

“But I don’t want to watch tv without external device…” She muttered as she followed Aoi.

Once inside all she saw was shelves and some employee's, on one of the shelves game console caught her attention, next was some kind of music maker.

“Music, and games…that’s my thing I think, what about you Aoi, Tatsuda?”

As they entered the store, Tatsuda skimmed over the many affordable devices. Eyes...Games...Memory extension...As she looked it all over, Kali asked them what they preferred. “My thing? I was into boxing. I was good I’m pretty sure if I went out of my way to teach others...Still, I won’t need to do that anymore since...It’s more awkward when I’m a woman who could break bones by mistake...So I’m going to get something more laid back.” She replied with a nod. Maybe a waiter...That way she did not accidentally break any bones. Just walk around and deliver stuff. No need to use force on the job right?

"I would like something that helps me make games such as something that can enhance my senses while testing a games environment or something that helps me create games without the need of a separate PC. By the way, I saw something that spiked my interest." Aoi said. She saw processors on a shelf.

"Excuse me, why are there twice different kinds of processors and again two different kinds of processor infrastructures?" She sked the attendant.

"Well there are coprocessors and main processors. Coprocessors are responsible for you being able to use your body. It is pretty much a replacement of the brain stem which maintains basic bodily functions. Most full body cyborgs had their brain stems removed as they are incompatible with the body as it cannot control its functions. So that is why we have coprocessors. Then the main processors are for people who have had accidents severe enough that they could only maintain their memories. So the main processor helps recover their personalities and function with those memories." The attendant said.

"So sort of like me, where I basically have only half of my original brain or less." Aoi said.

"Yes." The attendant said. "Then the infrastructures. The older infrastructures you will still find in normal PCs. These are also used in older models. Nowadays they have more cons than pros as they need a lot of power, arent too thermally efficient and cyborgs fitted with them occasionally experience emotional instability or sometimes even seem too robotic because the processor "forgets" to emulate the emotions. Newer models use quantum computing disks which usually in modern standard models have around 128 qubits which is more that enough. Due to the function of quantum computing, you do not need to mod the processors but only replace them if they cause problems. Usually they lock about 40 of the qubits in stock, but I can unlock them so that you can have more processing power and memory as qubits function as both memory and processors. You still tend to have an external memory device for security purposes such as to prevent hacking or viruses. But usually we use normal memory sticks for that since quantum computing is not always compatible with regular files."

"Cool." Aoi said. "Well then. How about you unlock two qubits and give me better external memory. I would need it to make video games. I am also thinking about getting a higher resolution projector eye and a more powerful sound output in case I need to be the DJ at a party and really want banging music."

"Well, I recommend the 10 petabyte memory or if you have the money we have exabyte (1000 petabytes/1 million terabytes) memory. I have a 128M projector eye or if you take two you can practically create holograms. And we have a speaker that can safely produce 110 db with a powerful bass without causing damage to your body. With the two qubits and the 10 petabyte memory, that will cost around 2000. If you take the exabyte memory, we are looking at 3000." The attendant said.

"Well I do have to make investments, so I will take the bigger memory." Aoi said.

"Okay. We will need about ten minutes to calibrate and prepare the parts and we can get to modding." The attendant said. She turned to Kali and Tatsuda. "In the meanwhile, can I be of assistance to you?"

Re: Wrong Body

Or androids and some cyborgs do this in some cyberpunk anime, but we don't have to go this far. lol Image


Re: Wrong Body

If you have seen the anime Ghost in the Shell movie or Henkei Shoujo, you would know that Japanese cyberpunk is a bit weird.


Re: Wrong Body

Huh...This seems like an interesting little thing!

You can count me in!


Re: Wrong Body

Kay :)
How freaky, and how different? - curious
Also, character sheet complete I believe, just a concept though, and not sure if picture is fine but...I can't find anything else that is fitting for now :( (Alright I could use Nier automata picture, but not really fitting...)


Re: Wrong Body

Sure. It is Japanese cyberpunk though which tends to be a little more freaky than normal cyberpunk. lol


Re: Wrong Body

Hi Annihya, can I join your rp? (Another one obviously...)
I think I may have character concept for this, though not sure if you will accept it...
