This is the RP I asked to borrow from someone on the other forum. Credit goes to RedxXxDawn and AntarcticTermite.
This is not a normal RP.
It does not take place in a normal RP world.
It takes place here.
Inside the man-made abyss called the Internet.
And the main character is you.
Not some character you made up. You.
You saw this thread like any other. It was and is just a thread. For now. You read through this, the intro, calculating whether to join, perhaps reading the application skeleton too. Maybe if you're a through sort of person you read the rules, too. You made your decision whether or not to join. Most who see this won't. You are one who did.
You copy-pasted the app, read through my own, checked how long yours should be, and skimmed through the rules impatiently to check what the password is. You saw that this was an avatar/username/profilepic RP, so you wrote the app to fit your own, or maybe even changed yours. You reread it for spelling errors and typed up that strange password.
Then you made the biggest mistake of your life.
You clicked 'Submit'.
The computer seemed to distort fuzzily, but at first you thought it was just your imagination. The glowing screen twisted slightly, seemed to change in ways you couldn't quite put your finger on, like those paradox dice. Suddenly, it shone white, and you tumbled through a widening portal, into a world of whizzing data. The very soul of your computer. All your files, all your apps, even your wallpaper image, swirled around you as you fell through pitch blackness. Soon more started to appear, more data and code. More. You realize as you fall that these are the files of every single internet-capable computer in the world, spinning in a giant hurricane of light in a world of darkness. You wonder why you aren't screaming. Perhaps you are. This is probably the most terrifying experience you'e ever had, because it looks, and feels, and sounds so real. A speck of shining white light blinks to life below you as you fall, brighter than all the rest. You fall one more fateful second thrugh the abyss, then into the portal.
You open your eyes-if you still have them-groggily. You feel different. You look around at this new location, then at yourself.
You are your avatar.
Q: My avatar doesn't work for this.
A: Use your profilepic, or even your signature. Your username can be helpful too. If none of those works, then just insert a pic and we'll pretend it's your avvie. K?
Q: Where does this take place? You didn't explain much...
A: This is a multiverse RP. It will take place in many worlds and places
Q: I don't want to be taken into a strange place in a strange form!
A: Haha, in case you feel creeped out now, no, this won't actually suck you into an RPing world. You will just RP as if it had.
Q: My question isn't on here.
A: Put it on the 00C thread, I'll probably update this with it.
Character nickname: This is what your character will be called. Can be your username or an adaptation of it.
Appearance: What they look like. It doesn't have to be an exact copy of your avatar/profilepic.
Personality: Either your own personality, the personality of your character, etc.
Skills: What abilities does their new form give them? What were they able to do before going to cyberspace?
Other: Anything else we should know?
As far as plot goes, our objective is to find the Crucible of Worlds. This is an artifact that was recently created by scientists that was meant to help them access and explore extraplanar worlds. But upon its creation it could not be contained propery, and then there was a terrible reaction.
It disappeared. The scientists thought it had simply vanished, or had gone to another plane of existence. In part they were correct. The Crucible of Worlds could not be contained in the airy space of reality, so it was sent through cyberspace, a hidden world that humankind unknowingly created ever since the internet was invented.
Soon enough, the artifact miraculously found its way to AntarticTermit's account. At that time, he decided to create a new rp, which was exactly like this one, but he had no idea that it really would suck innocent people out of their worlds into cyberspace. And through this process, the Crucible had been shattered. Each of its pieces were scattered among the realms of cyberspace.
Once a person touches a piece of the artifact, they will see within it a vision of reality, a reflection of the world of its origin. But those that were sucked into the rp have a special connection with the object since they were there when it had been shattered. When one of those participants comes into contact with a piece of the artifact, a portal will be opened, a fabric torn between cyber realms. That will lead to the realm where the next artifact piece is. We will be hopping realm to realm in search of the pieces, and once we make the Crucible of Worlds whole again… well you will see what happens then. I don't want to spoil too much of our plot..
