Introduction

Yokokawa: Any teenager's nightmare prison. Cut off from civilization, it serves as a fisherman's hub of commerce, attracting sailors from all over the world to its ports. Though, it probably couldn't fit that many people. No, Yokokawa is small, though it has the atmosphere of a big city. Tightly compact, everyone is practically neighbors. The mall? To your left. School? To your right. The ocean that's blocking us off from the rest of mankind? Everywhere around us.

It may be a fabulous, quaint place to any adult, but to a bunch of restless teenagers, this hometown is horrible. Just horrible. Nothing to do, nowhere to go. And, in their boredom, they decide to take a stroll through the city for a while, all eventually stumbling across a shop they hadn't seen before. It wasn't like Yokokawa got many new stores, so what a weird surprise.

However, upon entering, their hopes are flattened. Its some odd, creepy magic store, and the man behind the counter begins trying to sell them all odd things they've never heard of. However, he finally strikes a deal with them, offering really cheap lava-lamps. What kid hasn't dreamed of owning a lava lamp? So they make the purchase from the shady man, figuring no harm can come from it. Oh, how wrong could they be.

In the middle of the night, they all awake to a noise coming from their lamp, which is glowing brighter than it had been before. Before their eyes, the bubbles within slowly mush together, making a massive clump that resembles the shape of a human figure. Before they can even think to respond, the lava lamp shatters open, an odd looking being appearing before them, sitting upon their floor.

Guide to Genies: An Owner's Manual


You should first know that the creation of a Genie is a huge no-no. To make a Genie, you must use half of a human soul, meaning creators steal the lives of humans, reducing them to a vegetated state. Genies usually retain similar appearances and personalities to their original selves, though they are often known for being hyperactive and playful. And now you get to keep one!

Once Genies emerge from their lamps, there is no getting them back in. They stay in their human form, which acts as any other. They eat regular food, though I'd personally refrain from giving them sugar. Once you are in possession of a Genie, there's really no getting rid of them, unless you use all of your wishes.

On to the part you care about! Can they really grant you anything you desire? Indeed, though there are a few rules. Don't use all of your wishes in one place. Your Genie will become strained from using their abilities and need a few hours, at least, to recuperate. You may not wish for more or infinite wishes, or anything similar to that. Your Genie will decline to do so, as they are not able to grant more than three. They've also been trained to say no to resurrection of the dead. Everyone knows that those wishes never work out in your favor.

Though, most wishes don't work out in your favor. They aren't wishes exactly, more like exchanges. You pay something in return. It's never a life, as that's quite harsh and horrible, but it’s often your possessions. And where do they go, you may ask? Everything goes back to the creator.

However, it’s important to know what happens to a Genie once they grant all three of your wishes. After using up their ability, they vanish. There's a large flash of light, and, once it dissolves, your wish-giver is gone. No one knows why this happens nor where they go. They don't really talk about it, though they are made aware of their eventual fate by their creators.

Genies are often rambunctious creatures that know no bounds of personal space or privacy. Not all of them are as happy as others, but most are energetic and attention demanding. Humans should take care of their Genies, and their Genies will do the same to them. They are extremely loyal creatures, and they easily get attached to their masters, much to the dismay of those who own them.

The human characters will have lived on the tropical island of Yokokawa their entire lives. They all, most likely, know one another as Yokokawa is small and everyone is practically neighbors. They'll all, probably, go to school with one another, play sports with one another, etc... The Genies will be a very unexpected twist to their normal lives. Basically, all of our humans were lured individually into the odd shop that they'd never seen before. Presumably, other citizens were as well, but these are the only ones who bought lamps.

Our characters will all meet one another at the front of the store in the beginning of our roleplay, in attempts to return their Genies. However, they'll find that the owner has skipped town, leaving them stuck with their magical servants. Another problem? The arrival of two supposed FBI agents (NPCs) to the island, most possibly searching for the store-owner to arrest him for his illegal work. Seeing as he is gone, issues may ensue.

Can our characters team up and work together to make things right, or will their attempts fall into chaos and endanger everyone involved?

If any interested party has questions, I'd be happy to answer! I'll probably be making a question OOC topic for that purpose, but feel free to shoot me a PM if you'd like!

Image

✔ DO: Reserve your characters in the OOC. I won't be accepting random characters, no matter how awesome. When you reserve, put what role you want along with your favorite pop/soda/fizzy drink/whatever. Face Claims can be negotiated, though I did my best to find ones that had lots of gifs. Use the character skeleton that I shall place in the OOC momentarily.

✘ DON'T: Get too intimate. Nobody wants to see that. Romance is encouraged, a vital part of any story, but cyber-sex is unnecessary and something you can do on your own time. Take it to PM's if things get too awkward... While I'm speaking about content, I encourage you to use as little profanity as you can, as this is more lighthearted and... yeah. Gore is aye-okay, though I don't really see why we will need it.

✔ DO: Make a super cool, unique character! Put a whole spankin' lot of effort into your character, because they are the most vital points of our story. If they're human, make them realistic. If they're a Genie, remember the usual habits of a Genie, though make your character as different as you can. Not all Genies will super happy about serving their new masters, though some will. Make your characters feel real!

✘ DON'T: Make your characters perfect. They should be well rounded, with both strengths and weaknesses. Otherwise, they are uncool and so not fun to play with. I know you're awesome, so make your characters awesome too.

✔ DO: Be active, both in the roleplay and the OOC. I've learned in past roleplays that having an active OOC is always helpful! As is keeping up with the roleplay, so don't quit on me! Only join if you know you can slap a post up rather often. If you don't give me a reason that you'll be gone, you may lose your spot.

✘ DON'T: Write one-liners. This is a literate roleplay, and I'm asking at least 500 words. Please make sure you are using correct grammar and spelling, though everybody makes mistakes. As long as I know that you're trying.

✔ DO: Have a heck-of-a-lot of fun!

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Orokay
No worries, I completely understand. School is hectic, so focus on doing your best! :)

@Ladygeekiness
You do? Fabulous! If they'd like to join, tell them that they're free to take our open character.

@Everybody
As it seems lots of people will not be able to post Saturday, I'll scoot the starting date back to Sunday, though that's depending upon if we can fill our open spot. Which is actually a bit of a relief, as I have the busiest Saturday imaginavle and ahhh. But I'm pumped to start! Tomorrow I'll be operating off of my phone so I won't be able to do as much as I would on a computer, but I'll still be around in case you need me. Alright. That's all I can think of at the moment, so I'm gonna go ahead and hit the hay!

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@everyone
1 I KNOW SOMEONE WHO CAN FILL OROKAYS SPOT 2 I'M NEARLY DONE WITH FINIAN'S CHARACTER PROFILE AND 3 I AM PUUMMPED FOR THIS RP TO STARRT!

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Buggle
If we do start on Saturday then I won't be able to post until Sunday. Well, we may need to wait a little longer now, unless you find someone to fill the spot by Saturday. I can ask a few roleplayers to see if they are interested. Sorry to see you go Orokay. Good luck with school!

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@buggle I feel completely awful about this, but I think I'm going to have to step down. School has been a bit hectic lately and I really need to keep my focus so I'm trying to cut down on my RPs. I'm so sorry, I hope you guys find a replacement soon , this really is a great and unique idea.

Re: Your Wish is My Command

Alrighty! Well, now that we have all of our characters in, I figured we'd be able to start soon. I could throw a post up today, but I want to give you guys a bit more time to finish up your characters. The problem is that I will be out all day tomorrow, so we'll have to wait until Saturday. Does that sound okay to you all?

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Buggle

No complaints here. It's a good idea, afterall.

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Buggle
That sounds like a good idea to me. I don't see how it could hurt.

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Ladygeekiness
I figured that, if worst comes to worst, I can just change up the roles a bit.

Would changing things around, making Human #1 and Genie #3 a pair, so that everybody gets a partner and we can continue on, work for you all?

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@buggleuggy
have you posted in the roleplayers wanted section of the forums? (I could invite an rpger i know if you want?)

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Orokay
That's no problem at all! I completely understand your predicament, my friend.

Re: Your Wish is My Command

I'm sorry it's taking me so long to finish Cas. I've just started school and since I'm doing half of it online for the first time I'm still trying to get used to it. I don't have school on Friday so if I don't find time to finish him Wednesday or Thursday, I'll finish him then. ^^

Re: Your Wish is My Command

Hey guys! We're still waiting upon two character profiles, which I hope will come in rather soon. For now, I just ask that you do your best in getting your characters all finished! They're all looking fabulous. I am figuring that we'll most likely start soon, so woohoo!

Re: Your Wish is My Command

Hello there, everyone! (*゚⚙͠ ∀ ⚙͠)ノ❣

I just joined RPG recently (but I also had another account before... so I don't really know if "just joined" counts.. ( ・◇・)?) .... so you all can call me Mindy or Mind... or whatever you want. ^^

I came across your RP while scrolling through the list of them all and I must say I really am fascinated with the idea of using Genies! ohgawdRobinWilliams :'(.

I do see though that I came in a bit too late (Just my luck, eh?) but I would somehow love to join you guys! :D I was thinking of making a female character... a human without a genie (that is, if she can't have a genie... which is totally fine with me) perhaps? :S A girl that goes to the same school as everyone and maybe is friends with some of the others.... I don't know. :/ I'm a very creative person.... I swear...


For my favourite pop? Oh gee. I used to like Coke the best but now I think it may be Orange Soda now! I didn't want to try that drink at all though when I was young... As being a Canadian, I though "soda" and "pop" were two different things and soda was a totally different drink... so I didn't want to try it... ⁀⊙﹏☉⁀

Anywho, I babble a lot... It would have to be Orange Soda! ^-^


Soo... If I can get my hands on making a character for this wonderfully fantastic good-looking fabulous I'm not trying to suck up to you. I swear RP....that would be great! If not, I completely understand and I hope this RP goes along well anyways! ^^

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@Buggle
Yes thank you! That answers my question just fine :)
I kinda figured that they had some little extra power here and there, but just wanted to be sure.

Re: Your Wish is My Command

@BespectacledBeauty

Oooh good question. In my mind, I had it planned that Genies had a bit of excess magic lying around somewhere in there that allowed them to have a few abilities beyond human limits, which would be the usual Genie type stuff. They don't have any individual powers exactly, but they all can do some things that are rather out of the ordinary such as, maybe, teleport a few feet away or levitate a couple inches off of the ground. No super-powerful abilities, but still not normal. These powers are accessible to all of them, not just one person's. Does that make sense? Haha, I have all of this information stored in my head, but I forget to actually write it down.

Re: Your Wish is My Command

I plan on finishing my character tonight, but I might not get it done until tomorrow too. By the way I have a question about the Genie's. Do they have any other sort of powers that they can use for themselves besides granting their owner three wishes? Like just basic Genie stuff that they can all do, or are they only capable of granting wishes?

Re: Your Wish is My Command

Hello guys. I just wanted to let you know that I'll be out of town tomorrow and unable to check in. If there are characters submitted while I'm gone, which should happen, hopefully, the possibility of me approving them is a slim one, as I'm not sure if I can do so off of my phone. I'll do my best!

Welp.... turns out the amusement park I was going to is closed, so I guess I'll be online today after all! :)

Re: Your Wish is My Command

I'm loving all of your characters so far! When reading them, I realized I didn't specify what the Genies should put for their history, as they can't really remember it. If you'd like, you could talk about their old life, but leaving it blank is fine as well. :)

Also, I'll take this opportunity to introduce to you our lovely NPC's, AKA the characters that will be stalking ours for most of the story.





Image

Name: Newton Vancura

Alias(es): Agent, Agent #53852

Age: This is irrelevant.

Nationality: American

He and his partner, supposed FBI agents, are acting as tourists to investigate
claims of illegal Genie-making. His style of work is more down to the point
and everyone's guilty until proven innocent. He'll certainly be carefully
observing our characters as they go about trying to figure their situation out.

I'm just here to do my job and go home.




Image

Name: Renee Blackbourn

Alias(es): Agent, Agent #34019

Age: 34

Nationality: American

She is the more light-hearted of the duo, and she has a disregard for their
work. Though she knows she is here to possibly catch criminals, she'd rather
be exploring the island. She's a bit of an air-head, though she has a good
heart. She plays her role as a tourist quite well.

I've never seen a Genie before! I wonder what they look like. Poor
tortured souls, stolen from their homes and families. I'll save them!
I promise I will!





Re: Your Wish is My Command

Thank you! I will be sure to post as quickly and frequently as possible
