Main Character Perk

Main Character Perk

0 INK

Report: I know you advised against moving them. However I feel we could learn more about what gives them their power by placing them together. We've never seen more than one carry the perk at the same time and place, there is MUCH to be learned here...

205 readers have visited Main Character Perk since ShadenFox created it.

Introduction

Vas Loressence
A solar system and beacon of Scientific and Magical discovery. The people of this land have mastered their solar system through their technological and magical advances. Each of their planets are livable, though not all are open to the general public. One such planet is owned by Lore, a scientific and magical research team that specializes in studies of alternate realities. Their studies have determined a common trait among those that make history in their worlds. This trait, this perk, was dubbed the 'Main Character Perk'. It seemed to grant immunity to permanent death and the ability to overcome any challenge. Things that would be impossible, both my laws of magic and science, came to pass for those with this perk.

Beyond the result however, there was no correlation between those who developed this trait. Some were cruel, some were poor, the weak or the strong, there didn't seem to be any rule governing who this power would go to. Curious minds grasp for answers and the lure of discovery drives them forward.

For better or worse.

"All subjects have been safely transported to our off base location" A virtual voice confirmed.
"Good. They were placed in their respective rooms correct? They need at least some space that reminds them of home."
"All subjects have been placed in their corresponding rooms."
"And all the doors unlocked? We don't want them feeling trap-"

"ORISA! What have you done?!"
"Hello to you as well old man. I'm sure you've read my report and know exactly what I have done. Otherwise you wouldn't be here screaming at me as if I took the last of your cheese."
"This is hardly about cheese. Put them back."
There was an unspoken threat that hung in the air for a moment before Orisa replied. Seemingly unimpressed.
"This is my project. You knew my intent when you gave me this position."

The Subjects of Study

The Gamer
From a world that covets virtual reality over the reality they find themselves stuck in. The Gamer is an MMO genius who's username inspires awe whenever he/she logs in. No one can best the Gamer in any form of virtual game that determines so much of their real world conditions. No one truly knows if he/she is playing for the fun of it or not. All they know for sure is when the Gamer logs in, things will change.

Note: He/She can be brought over in his/her virtual form or normal form. Whichever pleases you more, or both if you're feeling particularly adventurous.

Re: Main Character Perk

Hello! I'd love to join. Would that RP be open for a beginner? And someone whose mother-tongue isn't English?
How long should a character biography be?

Re: Main Character Perk

Pardons for this, but I may have to resign my spot. I wish you best of luck. It's a wonderful idea.

Re: Main Character Perk

Ah well I went ahead and submitted my character so I hope you enjoy my little creation ^-^

Re: Main Character Perk

Reserves will be first come, and hold for roughly 24 hours (or more but never less). After that time if no character is subbed it will pass to the next reserve request.
