setup:
you and seven(?) other people have been sucked into a computer that's capable of generating an entire world.
what type of world it generates can vary, as can the laws of physics. in one part of the world, magic is possible. in another part, over-sized insects rule. in another, time travel is frequent.
your ultimate goal is to figure out what's wrong with each world and restore it to its rightful order, so you may escape the computer sim and go back to your normal lives.
character:
you should do a short human start bio.
starting race:
the first world you'll visit is an aquatic one. you may pick any sort of sea creature you can dream up, but it should be compact enough to be able to fit in a 3x3x3 meter box. (1 meter = the distance from the ground to the shoulder of a normal human being.)
example character bio.
name: cara
gender: female
height: 5' 7"
background: abusive parents, shy, introverted.
aquatic creature: dolphin, with human like arms and hands.


basic rules of rp:
no god modding. you shouldn't do anything that drastically affects the environment around you. you also may not control other players. (i, or if deemed necessary, another GM will control any non-player combatants (NPC), or enemies you fight.)
an example of an acceptable post versus an unacceptable one.
acceptable:
Flora moves gracefully toward the Rock of Magii. she places her hand on it and attempts to call forth it's power. "rgoni fastini labadama!"
unacceptable:
Flora calls forth the Power of the Rock of Magii, and it imbues her with the ability of foresight.
(what sort of ability you might get from something like that would be an event a GM would decide, though you can request one via messaging [note: you may or may not get what you request. don't take it personally.])

acceptable:
gavin picks a knife from his belt. "do you know how many ways i can kill you right now?" he threatens to the dark wizard.
he attempts throwing it at the dark wizard's head.
unacceptable:
gavin picks up a knife form his belt, throws it at the dark wizards head, and it plunges deep into his flesh.
(you can assume minor actions such as speech or things that affect your only your character are doable.
but something like killing the dark wizard with a single action should be decided by the GM.)

quests: after a brief look around, an npc will offer you some sort of goal to complete. if your team accepts, you will have to work together to finish it. if not, you can look around some more, and another quest will present itself shortly.
messaging:
i encourage each player to message each other and myself behind the scenes. if you need a particular thing done, but feel your character is either incapable or otherwise prohibited, you can try to get another character to attempt it. if you have an idea for an enemy you'd like to fight, quest you think would be worth your while, skill your character should acquire, etc. by all means message me and I'll see if i can find a way to make it happen.

an rp can take a while to complete. please don't
sign up if you don't intend to invest the time.

you can either post your character bio here, or message me with it. the back GM is just in case i need to be away for a while. (i can't think of any reason i would be but it's always good to have insurance.) also the backup GM can message me with any suggestions to improve the game.

Just one thing? When we travel to other computer generated worlds, Do we still keep the same aquatic suited body?

Mafiosos and mafiosas of the world, unite! And then kill each other in a particularly tricky move that everyone suspects but never anticipates.

stand back. I'm going to apply logic.

no of course not. as soon as the aquatic world is finished, i'll do a refresh and see who wants to keep playing or if we need new adventurers,
and i'll let you know what world we'll be visiting so you can pick a new outlook.

Definitely trying this. First time playing, so I don't know how I'll do, but why not, eh?

Hmm... let's try a bio now.

Name: MiKi
Gender: Female
Background: Grew up in a good family, but was often ignored for younger siblings, so is kind of assertive and can stand up for herself pretty well. She was also very sheltered, so she is quite naive.
Personality: Like in the background, MiKi can stand up for herself pretty well. She is kind and creative and can sing well. She is also book smart; street smart, not so much. She likes to read, so she knows a bunch of useless crap that other people don't. She is also good at math and science, and horrible at English and Social Studies. She has a weakness for chocolate, cake, and most anything with sugar, really. She is an adventurer, and can usually face danger and laugh. However, despite her tough, self-assured nature, she secretly pines for love and attention. Because of this secret longing, she often chooses to trust the wrong people. Also as in the backgorund, she is very naive, and so she cannot usually see very deep into people, which doesn't help her trust issue. But she has a very innocent, helpless look that makes almost anybody want to be her friend and help her out.
Height: 5'1"
Aquatic creature: Seahorse, but can communicate with other animals through a mix of gestures and seahorse-speak. She also has a strong tail that can easily grab things and hold on for a long time.

How was that? Is that okay?

perfect. for the sea horse, I'll assume it about human size. (most seahorses are about the size of a thumb. i figure you don't want that.)

Nah. A relatively big sea horse is cool. Maybe about a meter tall?
