labΒ·yΒ·rinth
ˈlab(Ι™)ˌrinTH/
noun
noun: labyrinth; plural noun: labyrinths
1. a complicated irregular network of passages or paths in which it is difficult to find one's way; a maze.
"a labyrinth of passages and secret chambers"
synonyms maze, warren, network, complex, web, entanglement


ImageImage
They call it the Labyrinth, which is silly, because from where you're standing, it looks like a large field. Just a grassy plain, encircled by mountains, and a lake. So what is the pro-...Where's the exit? So wait there are no doors, and no openings of any kind. Huh? Okay, so maybe you spoke to soon. Since there isn't any ways out, how are you supposed to leave?



Image

The Labyrinth* is an ancient, sprawling, puzzle-like structure that has existed before the establishment of dreaming itself. Notorious for its occasional meddlings in the time/space continuum, the Labyrinth has been hailed as the Bermuda Triangle of dreaming. Vaguely sentient and ever-changing, the interior of the Labyrinth is an extremely dangerous mixing pot of castaway dream material. But for all this, in the end it's just a maze. A puzzle, a game. And there is no way out, no waking up until you solve it.

This is the story of five young people, who's sleeping souls have been snatched from their respective universes, and sucked into the innermost sanctions of the Labyrinth. The way out is divided into parts, (levels, if you will) that increase in difficulty the farther out one gets. Each level is different, and only the first few will actually take the form of a maze. Some levels will emulate life to simulate the appearance of whole cities, or even take on the form of a dreamer's internal landscape. Some will take a while to pass, while others may go by briefly.

To pass a level, the key needs to be found. The key, like the level, can come in many forms, but will be instantly recognizable to a dreamer. But finding the key, dear reader, is the easy part. The real challenge lies in creating the door, which is where the big twist comes in. You see, the whole Labyrinth is designed to respond to emotions, and the bonds between people. Each level represents a different stage of a relationship, so for example the starter level would be Strangers. The door appears once that stage of the relationship has been cleared, so once everyone has became acquainted with one another, the way out would become apparent, and the key could be used to unlock the next stage, Acquaintances.

Now, with this in mind, there are three possible Gateways out of the Labyrinth, and not all of them need to be used. They are the different bonds in their ultimate forms, representing the clearance of the final levels of a relationship. The Familial Gate, for the highest of friendships, the Amatory Gate, for the truest of romantic soul-mates, and the final gate, going by no name other than Nemesis, for the deepest and blackest of enmities. Every member in the group must advance a step towards one of these gates to clear a level, and create the door. So, by the final level the dreamers will all have very strong relationships, but eventually will have to split off.

However, the party members can't win either way. You see, to awake and clear a Gateway, one needs to pass with the other member of the relationship... and these types of relationships are very rarely formed in triplets. Yet, there are five dreamers. One will be left behind. Not only that, but what happens when the winners pass through the Gateways? They wake up.

Slot 1 | LEEJ
I hail from an unnamed metaphysical world where everything is insubstantial and color doesn't exist. Things such as touch, taste, or feel- all of these are unfamiliar to me, though I know of them. This is due to the number of portals to the Solid that litter my world. Myself and others like me pass through them sometimes, but rarely of our own volition, for we become trapped until an inhabitant (yes, the Homo sapiens) frees us. We are invisible to all but a select few, and those few have given my kind several names where we used to have none; demon, ghost, or spirit, to list a few. I have never slept before, and certainly never dreamed until now. However, I have heard of the Labyrinth, and so I am vaguely aware of the situation.

Available Species
  • Ghost
  • Spirit
  • Demon
  • Poltergeist
  • Will-O'-the-Wisp


Vocab Terms
the Solid- most likely modern-day earth, home to humanity


Note: This is the "paranormal role". The unnamed world is the spirit world of sorts, not the afterlife, but rather a gutter for castaway snippets of memory, energy, dream, and magic. The creatures who exist there are a culmination of all these bits and pieces, usually held together by a memory or a strong feeling. Rarely are these memories good, and the resulting spirits are usually monstrous.


Slot 2 | ANGEL
My world is a harmonious blend of sunlight and shadow... or at least it used to be. Nowadays it's wartorn, with the Children of Lune fighting for supremacy over the Children of Sol. With forces evenly divided, combat has produced nothing more than bloodshed. We don't have much in the way of technology (nothing involving gunpowder, for example) but we more than make up for that with our supernatural tendencies and the abilities of the people. We look down on humans for their greed and lack of occult understanding. We have ways to visit their world, doorways that open at the right time in the right place. As a result of this limited contact, the humans have formed many a myth and legend about our kind. I know plenty about the Labyrinth; there was even a whole section about it in school. But I was messing with powers that I shouldn't have, and now I'm here. But I know what I have to do to get out.

Available Species
  • Any legendary creature from Western folklore


Vocab Terms
Children of Lune- night-oriented mythical creatures (e.g. vampires, werewolves, goblins)
Children of Sol- day-oriented mythical creatures (e.g. unicorns, valkyrie, fairies)


Note:
This is the "mythical role". The charm to this is that nearly any creature from Western folklore is available for the pickings (the exceptions are creatures available for other worlds, and magical humans like witches). So, with that in mind, pick something interesting! Don't just go with your average, run of the mill vampire or werewolf. Try a unicorn (note: for animal-like species like dragons or unicorns, a human form is required, one that retains from previous characteristics)! Or specify a more unique class of vampires, based on the beliefs of a certain culture.



Slot 3 | EVER
My civilization spans countless star systems; to limit it to one world would be unthinkable. The Imperium's technology and size bests that of any other galactic empire, flourishing under the iron-fisted rule of our present Kindly One. We call ourselves humans, but in truth we have evolved far past that, having unlocked the full power of the brain long ago. My intellect would be able to match or surpass the greatest minds Ancient Earth would have to offer. Yes, I have dreamed before, to my embarrassment. The Imperium frowns upon emotions, dreams, and the supernatural, so of course I have no idea what's going on here.

Available "Species"
  • Lab experiment
  • Physically-enhanced Imperium officer
  • Cyborg
  • AI Robot with human mutation
  • Human/Alien hybrid


Vocab Terms
The Imperium- a large, powerful empire run with a machine-like efficiency
the Kindly One- a title reserved for the current dictator of the Imperium
Ancient Earth- the home planet of humanity, long since absorbed into its red sun


Note: This is the "sci-fi role". Unlike all the others which are from the same time frame, this takes place in the future as the evolved form of humanity. The character coming from this kind of world will have a hard time, as human interaction is kept to a bare minimum. Humanity is spread out to its thinnest, and all humans are raised to be overseers of conquered areas. Not only that, but marriage is non-existent royal permission is needed for breeding privileges. A very strict society.


Slot 4 | SORA
Oh crap, oh crap... where am I!? I-I don't know what's going on, I fell asleep, and I think I'm dreaming, but this doesn't feel like a dream! I tried the pinching thing, and it hurt, but I don't think that's what's supposed to happen? Wh-what? You want me to tell you about my world? Uh, okay, uh, it's called Earth? Third planet from the sun, you've heard about it, right? No? O-okay... well.... look, I really think you have the wrong person here. I'm just a normal student! Shouldn't you be going after some famous person or whatever? Please, I really don't know what's happening here, you can't leave me alone with these people; they're so weird!

Available "Species"
  • Average human student


Vocab Terms
Earth- modern day home of humanity, also known as the Solid


Note: This is the "normal role". All of the other roles are designed to be as odd and far out there as possible, but this one is meant to be as centered as they are weird. The character coming from this world is to be as normal as normal can be, just your average student doing average day to day things. Of course, this doesn't mean that they need to be plain or boring. This character should be as well-rounded as the others.


Slot 5 | LUNA
Up to user, provided that it's unique and different than the other worlds mentioned, and also holds a link to Earth. Some ideas are; a world inhabited by deities, a world based on Eastern mythology and folklore, a high fantasy-esque world taking place in Earth's past, much like how Slot 4 is set in the future.

Available "Species"
  • Also up to user.


Vocab Terms
Earth- modern day home of humanity, also known as the Solid


Note:This is the "customizable role". You can pretty much do whatever with it, provided it's different than the other roles, and that any creatures that inhabit it are either human-like or have human forms. No normal humans; something has to make them different or special.

Re: Awake

Hello Sora~!

Eyyy guys, all of the WIPs are in (finally, lol). Leej, if you look at the last word of the intro post, I can only applaud your name choice. *struggles not to burst into maniacal laughter*

Image

Re: Awake

*cries*
Image
I'M SO SORRY.

I-I had to share my computer over the week/weekend so I only logged on for, like, less than a minute then I was shoved off. By my mother //slapped

Anyways. I'M BACK. I'M ALIVE. I'M HERE. I JUST SUBMITTED AN UGLY WIP. Welp, yeah. I'm sooooo soooo sorry for my absence! I didn't think I'd be gone for so long and then I just pooled TuT

Moving on; I love this rp~ It looks gorgeous and so pwetty and the story's awesome and just. Wow. I can't even put how amazing this is into words, but I'm sure you get the point >w< Ahhhh, I'm so excited to get this started~

Re: Awake

Ahaha, Leej, good to see you! (*starts sniffing around for Sora*)

Well, I know that you probably posted that a while ago, when I made a character for that role a while back I just named him "Ghost", on the basis that he never had a name, and that's just what the humans started calling him. So you could name your character something similar, like "Spirit", "Demon", or "Oni". Or, if he's formed after some specific emotion, he could simply be called "Anger", "Happy", or something more specific like "Addiction", "Bias", or "Endurance".

Re: Awake

Image

....HI! If only this room had an echo than my life would be complete. Anyway, I am here and am starting on my character as we speak. Though I do have a problem. Would a demon/spirit even require a name? Of course I'm giving my character a name, but I don't know what his real name should be. Like Cora's real name, should I make mine complicated? So many questions...

Anyway, thank you guys for the compliments T_T I don't think I did a great job, and believe you guys could do way better...But...you didn't hear that from me because if Sora and Ever found out I said that they would attack me with compliments, and with saying that block out this whole thing.XD

Anyway, I am so excited for this rpXD The only thing that worries me is that every time I make a character in a rp and Ever and Sora are involved someway or another I become their target for murder or a tragic story XD. T_T My poor character always seems to be hurt by themT_T

Re: Awake

Ehehehehe~


First off, ya'll need to be more chatty over here! (SORA AND LEEJ I'M LOOKING AT YOU)

Second, Leej just finished up the character skelly, so now this party can get started! If you want, send me or post a picture/gif of choice of your character, and I'll put it up on the front RP page.

Third, does anyone know how to add multiple GMs? I forgot how... >.>

Re: Awake

@Ever, Guuurl you know where it's at~!

Re: Awake

First off…..

This is just too beautiful~~ Leej , you have outdone yourself this time >w<

Gah so many pretty gifs!!!

Secondly,

I think I'll take up the sci-fi role, Angel~ Hehe..antisocial characters are close to my heart, after all~ Wait…..is that a good or bad thing…!? =.=| What does this say about my life..?! Oh my.. *cough* I think I just found the perfect FC that I simply can't refuse .w. *cough*

Alrighty then….. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some life-ruining twists to thin about~ ^w^/

Re: Awake

I LOVE EVERYONES BEAUTIFUL FACE



COME LOVE ME BECAUSE LETS FACE IT; I HAVE NO IDEA HOW TO PLOT TWIST AND IM ALREADY TERRIFIED OF YOU PLOTTING GENIUSES.

Awake







Yo homies! First order of business; character roles.


Leej seems to like the "paranormal" role.

Luna likes the "custom" role.

Sora prefers that "normal" role.

I don't know about Ever yet.

Personally, I prefer the "mythic" role, but I'm willing to take whatever role Ever doesn't want! c:





Don't think of me as the gamemaster or anything! Yeah, I've got a crapton of plot twists and crap for this RP, but I don't want to be solely responsible for stuff. There's only five of us! We should consider ourselves a team!

Also, muchmuch thanks goes to Leej for the beautiful new intro page, and for the character skelly that'll be done sometime tomorrow.





IF ANY OF YOU FOUR ARE READING THIS, RESPOND OR SOMETHING SO I'M NOT JUST SCREAMING INTO THE ABYSS.
