Over the few years that the TTV message boards has existed, this website has been filled with many RPs and stories, with many thoughtfully crafted characters and worlds. However, most people fail to remember that, behind these characters are actual people: Us, the users. Most of us are just a bunch of regular, uninteresting people in real life, and we created and played in these worlds to escape our boring reality. But one day, we really do escape reality when we discover a mysterious topic. The topic does something strange to our computers, and we find ourselves transported into cyber space, and enter a strange dimension that embodies the entire TTV message boards. Things soon get even stranger; glitches in the website are quickly corrupting the world around them, and we must find the source of the corruption and stop it before the entire message boards are destroyed. Along the way, we encounter many familiar faces, such as the RP characters and MOCs we have created in the past, both friendly and unfriendly. Some of our villains have been assimilated by the glitches and weaponized against us; but we receive help in the form of the powers, weapons and skills from the heroes we created, using them to defend ourselves as we navigate the twisted labyrinth of categories and topics in the website...
This RP will be semi-open world, but it will still be affected by an overarching Narritive/plot.
1.) Your characters cannot have any powers in real life.
Your characters are supposed to be representations of your real life selves, and as far as I know, people don’t have superpowers in the real world. You will gain the abilities of the characters you have already created once you enter cyberspace.
2.) You may sign up any preexisting characters.
Since this RP takes place within the message boards itself, you may sign up include any preexisting RP character or MOC that you have created in the past. However, don't worry about signing them up just yet. Only sign up a preexisting character once you're absolutely sure that you are going to include them in this RP. When you do sign them up, you can just use the same bio that you originally used for them. And make sure to strictly adhere to the conditions of rule 3.
3.) There are limitations to rule 2.
Allow me to specify: rule 2 doesn't mean you can just introduce every character all at once in the same place at the same time. It would be too chaotic. They can only be t at a time, and in certain situations. If we are in an RP world that a certain Hero or Villain exists in, they can only be introduced there. Additionally, you cannot have more than one villain corrupted by your glitch at the same time.
4.) The heroes must stay in their native RP world.
In this RP, we are the main protagonists. Our preexisting hero characters are meant to act more as secondary protagonists. Because of this, they cannot leave the RP worlds from which they originate. The only exception would be if the hero characters have been in multiple RPs. The villains, on the other hand, can travel outside of their RPs.
5.) You cannot summon the abilities of your villains.
It would seem a little hypocritical if my character were using the Gamemaster’s laser cannon while fighting against the Gamemaster himself. Anti-heroes, however, are another story. You can help them, and/or fight them, and/or summon their abilities.
6.) You cannot use more than one ability at once
You can only summon one power, weapon, or skill of a character at a time. If you exceed this limit, then you could be at the risk of becoming too OP.
7.) GMs will change, depending on the environment.
In this RP, we will be travelling to the worlds of the different RPs on the message boards. If we are in the world of an RP that one of us has GMed, then that person will temporarily become the GM of this RP, since it is technically their world that we would be in.
8.) No Autohitting and/or auto dodging
9.) No Godmodding
10.) You cannot summon “OP” abilities
Any powers, weapons or skills that are OP (Such as altering space, time and reality) are not allowed.
11.) Signups will remain open, even after the RP has started. New players/characters are always welcome!
Sign up sheets:
Your main character is supposed to be your real-life self, or at least a representation of yourself.
Name: (Your real name, an alias, or your username. In any case, I highly recommend that you not use the names of any of your pre existing characters, unless it’s your actual name.)
In addition to making a character that represents yourself, you will also be required to make a glitch for your character. Basically, a glitch is a dark reflection of yourself. They are the Yin to your Yang. Personality wise, they would most likely have more exaggerated versions of your negative traits, or they would have the exact opposite of your good traits.
Ability wise, the glitches can quickly travel across long distances, shapeshift into your RP/MOC villain characters, and disintegrate or corrupt objects and people.
Players so far:
I would like to thank everyone who has helped me create the concept for this RP. (You all know who you are ;) ) It may not seem like it, but I really do appreciate your criticism, as it has helped me to create a better and more efficient RP. Thank you.
