Portable Good

Portable Good

0 INK

All the worlds are connected through a series of portals that only a select few can see. What world will you travel to?

Introduction

Ah, Earth!

So far, the only planet we know of capable of life. Lonely, but content, in our little galaxy. Totally oblivious to the fact that there, are, in fact, other worlds, brimming with life. Fantasy worlds, worlds of technology, dystopian worlds, alternate histories, some barren, some devoid of humans, and some that are just like ours. But chances are, most humans will never see them. Why? Because even though these worlds might be stacked on top of us, squished next to us, maybe even occupying the same space as us, the only thing connecting us to them are portals. And portals are damn hard to find.

Image

Enter the portal-hikers! Besides the dragons of the fantasy worlds, portal-hikers are the only beings who can see, and subsequently, find these portals. Portal-hikers all come from the same birth world, but once they reach the age of 16, they must partake in a Coming-of-Age ritual. For two years, they must travel through the portals, exploring new worlds and learning about all the different cultures in each. When they reach the age of 18, they return back to their birth world, and after a celebratory ceremony, are proclaimed adults and granted the extra ability to see what lies at the other end of the portal.

For safety concerns, the adolescent portal-hikers travel in trios. The gender of each does not matter, so long as there are three of them. They are both 16, and are capable of seeing portals, but not what world they lead to. The Rite of Passage could be dangerous, and there have been stories of those who accidentally ended up in the Wasteland, a barren no-man's land that is extremely dangerous for the unprepared and difficult to escape. Many, but not most, have also failed to return, either lost in a world, killed, or unwilling to go back. All are equipped with a single simple weapon, and a bag stuffed with initial supplies. When they return, the bag should be filled with a souvenir from every world they visit. The more worlds, the merrier, and the more prestige and respect you will receive. Quality also matters, though, and someone who traveled to 10 different worlds whose only difference was the height of the people might not compare to the teenager who only went to three, but nearly died in each. Of course, in the end, so long as you return, you will still be treated to the same ceremony.

So now! The Characters!

There will be only three portal-hikers (I think multiple journeys into different worlds would get confusing very fast, and I'd like to follow one story line for now). They must all be 16. Gender doesn't matter.

BUT! There are more characters than the portal-hikers! Many make friends with the occupants of the worlds they travel to, referred to as Otherworlders, and some even take these otherworlders along on their journey! You can play any character you want (vampire, zombie, teenage girl, talking butterfly, cat girl, etc) from any world you want. These characters will decide which worlds the portal-hikers will travel to initially, so choose wisely! Once we visit each character, suggestions will be brought up in OOC :)

Toggle Rules

No Godmodding!

Please be original with your characters.

General RPG rules apply here.

I'm okay with profanity, but I don't anticipate there will be much violence or steaminess in here. If there is, try to keep it to a PG-13 level, or bring it to PM.

What I say goes.

Don't be mean to each other in OOC.

Limit 2 characters.

In terms of the worlds, try to be original. It can be any world you want. Really. However, if you decide to use a pre-existing world, please give credit where it is due (like, say it's owned by so-and-so in the world section of your character sheet). Worlds will be decided on in OOC, so check there. Keep in mind we won't be staying in each world for too long, so if you really want to go to Hogwarts, maybe you should join a Harry Potter rp instead. Parody worlds of pre-existing worlds are fine too.

No time travelling. If a world is backwards technologically, or relatively new, then that's fine. But we aren't time travelling. We're world travelling :)

Please write literately. A couple mistakes here and there are fine. But I don't want a post that's 1/2 txt spk, k? Proper capitalization and punctuation please.

No one liners. These are annoying.

Let me know if you're going to control another person's character so I don't freak out when you seriously injure someone.

Please try to post regularly. I know school is starting, so if you can't do it once a day, once a week is fine. If you have to leave, let me know.

Have fun! This is a light-hearted, comedic, adventuresome roleplay! Have at it! :)

The speaker in question was quite relaxed. He had given this speech quite a few times, and was actually retiring after this year. He smiled somewhat at the bustling crowd, and had to surpress a laugh at the row of nervous, fidgety, overly-excited 16-year-olds right in the front. It reminded him of his own rite of passage, and his eyes twinkled at the nostalgia.

Finally, he made his entrance. He walked out onto the stage, and the audience burst into uproar, shouts and whoops mixed in with lots and lots of clapping. He held out his hands as he stepped towards the microphone, and after a few seconds, the noise finally dimmed. He paused, waited, knowing that he had everyone on the edge of their seats, and finally leaned forward. Another pause. He opened his mouth slightly. Pause....

"Good Morning," he greeted. A deafening "GOOD MORNING!" was returned to him, along with some laughs. Again, the noise had to be quieted, but he spoke without the dramatic pauses. "Good morning!" he repeated, "And welcome to our annual Rite of Passage ceremony!"

He went over the usuals. The history of the ceremony (it had been around since time itself!), the groups of three, young, 16 year-old Portal Hikers, the worlds they would travel to, their eventual return as adults, and the reward of being able to see through the portals. Everyone had heard it countless times, but it was still eagerly listened to. Finally, it came down to the list of 16 year olds. In his loud, booming, official voice, the announcer read off the names...

Ava Gardener

Ava practically leapt out of her seat at the sound of her name, face wide in a grin. She skipped to the stage, smiling happily in front of everyone. The announcer continued to read off the other two in her group: Connor Tairseach and Finn Kennedy. Both boys. They joined her on the stage after being called.

The impatient girl wished the ceremony would hurry up already. Her mind was bursting with all the possibilites of what world she'd go to, and she wanted to leave as soon as possible! She bobbed up and down in anticipation.

Connor Tairseach

Connor stood up slowly smirking as he made his way to the stage his face hidden until he turned around as he made his way beside the girl. He made sure he still had his 44. magnum at his side as the ceremony persisted his attention dwindling. He looked to his side to get a better look at the girl. She was energetic and maybe a bit too perky for his tastes. It didn't matter though he would be stuck with her and the other boy for two whole years. So he would have to try his best to get them off on a good note so they don't hate him and make his life hell for a good fifth of a decade.

He knew he was at a slight disadvantage with the other two considering he was only capable of seeing certain portals but he could still go through any of them. He just couldn't see a small portion of them.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Yeah...I'm waiting on Methodical O_O

I will message him/her. If I don't get a reply from them soon, then the third portal hiker will be open.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Wondering if there'll be a post added within the next couple of days. I would, but it's not gone past the intro yet.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

It will, I've just been so busy!

BUT! I plan on making the first post tomorrow afternoon/evening :D

Thanks for staying with me, guys!

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

So... is this roleplay gonna get off the ground? Just wondering.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

@Cha-kun: I replied. Please check your inbox :)

@starsailor: That's fine. we have a lot of room for otherworlders.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Oh my fur and whiskers! I wish I had found this one sooner.
I'll put up an otherworlder when I get the time.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Cirrus... did you get my message? T^T You never replied...

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Forgot to mention here that I've got my character more or less finished too.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

We'll be posting soon.

Thank you so much guys for your patience with this roleplay! I have been very busy, but seeing everyone be so enthusiastic about it makes me happy :)

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Posted my character, sorry it took me so long, I've been in the hospital. Can't wait to start :D!

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

so are we gonna start soon?

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

I would like to reserve a other worlder! Woooooo!

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Well, I had imagined one world where they are all originally from, and generally raise their family, but portal-hikers sometimes live in other worlds as well.

There might be other worlds with portal-hikers (it's certainly possible), and I'd imagine there would be at least one that consists of war-like people who take over other worlds via portals (perhaps it will become a plot point later) but this particular roleplay takes place in one portal-hiker world.

Hope that answers your question :)

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Just to check, are there portal hikers from other worlds or are they all from the same one? My guess is with the former, but I always like to be certain.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Also, I'd like to add here that reservations are 24hr only. After that, the spot goes open again.

Also, if you suddenly stop posting or abandon the rp without telling me, then I will open your slot up to someone else and write a terrible death for your character. If you do tell me you can't do it anymore, then you get to write a terrible death for your character (or provide some viable excuse for why they suddenly disappeared)

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Yeah, that would work :)

lol, thanks. The whole idea for this roleplay is based off a book idea I have (though in the book, the main characters are different and none are portal hikers) and that was the possible title...hopefully the book will come to fruition during NaNoWriMo.

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Now that I think about it, my character idea does seem more suited to be an otherworlder. Maybe a portal hiker who's already gone through his rite of passage, something like a mentor for the trio?

Also, I saw what you did with the title. Pure genius!

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

Yes, Methodical, you can reserve the third hiker

Aww, sorry Gamer_Templar :/ I might consider adding a fourth. But, don't be shy to make an otherworlder! They can tag along as well. And remember, dragons can see the portals as well :)

Re: PORTAbLe GOOD

When I saw this RP, I kinda sorta really wanted to reserve one of the hikers. Oh well. Brilliant idea this is, I must say.

But if there's any chance a fourth hiker could tag along, I'm game! =D
