ok heres my basic idea. its set in a near future where now people can be compatible with computers in areas of medical, biological, and of course gaming. now there is a new web rpg that has just come out known as infinitum. it brings mystical weapons, magic, and creatures and mixes them with modern places and weaponry. eventually the game creaters make an expansion that must be unlocked by the players. as well as being a well made gimmick it brings in players by the masses. the only way to unlock the expansion is to find six keys known as the map keys. these keys are guarded by creatures of amazing power. by now only two keys have been collected. and many guilds have fallen to these creatures and only a few know of their location.

the main point of the rp is to help destroy these creatures and unlock the expansion.

the char sheet goes like this.

screen name:
lvl: (up to lvl 30 permitted)
guild: (if in one)
skills: may have up to three
weapons: try to make them reasonable
items: ( agains keep reasonable)
bio: (if wanted)

any questions?

Okay, it may just be me, but I'm confused. Is VR and actual game or is just fictional for the purpose of the RPG? If so, then what leveling and/or skills tree would we be following?

08/15/2007 10:02 PM

fictional. the leveling style would be based not on what monsters you attack but the challenge of said monsters. so if a level 15 character fought a level one char he either would not gain any experience towards leveling because it was to weak of a creature. however if he fought one of the same level and bairly made it out alive he would gain lots of experience due to the challenge.you may also gain experience through battles with other players and such. the skills tree i'll let you make up on your own. but it must make sense. a level one character can't have an ability that makes him invisible or that can wipe out five creatures at a time. when making skills please make a description of it unless it seems really obvious. skills can be activated ones or ones that count throughout the battle.
any other questions?

Ok well it sounds interesting, let's see if anyone else shows any interest.

08/16/2007 7:27 AM

I'm interested but would it be just in game Rping or with real life as well... BTW have you ever watched any .Hacks. But there'll have to be a few more people.

08/16/2007 9:32 AM

I'm also interested but what races are there and classes and I would like a world map.

08/16/2007 11:25 AM

I was thinking of possibly making it so both online and offline rping would be in it but im not sure. i might just leave it to online role playing. oh and i only saw two or three episodes of .hack//sign.

In the way of races, i was thinking maybe just three or four races.

human, elf, and helmath ( think of the galka from ff online )

as for classes. I was thinking more of a make your own class.

Raikoh: Chris' character has made quite a name in the game world, wiether its because he looks like he stepped outa the matrix or the fact he was one of the people who helped kill the second gaurdian of the map pieces. He used to own a large well known guild until they revolted against him. He couldn't keep power and he and five other loyal players left the guild to start their own. Ever since its been tough for Raikoh to build his way back to the top. He has black hair and red eyes. He normally wears a brown trenchcoat and dark clothing underneath it. He used to have many allies but now only has a few allies to his guild. Every four weeks when the guild wars start he always fights against his former guild. Guild ronin

Name: Zach Riley
Age: 20
Gender: Male
Country playing from: USA
Screen name: Kogamaru
Player for: Two years
lvl: 30
Class: Assassin
Guild: -Justice-
Skills: Swordsmanship,
Shadow Teleportation, Martial Prowess.
Weapons: A black nodachi sheathed across his back. Twin kamas chained together. Seveal kunai sheathed across his armor, and ninja stars with other throwing weapons hidden all over.
Items: Orb of Death (transfers health to Kogamaru per kill he makes in battle)
Assassin's cowel (Allows him to see in complete darkness)
A few mp potions, health potions.

Zach Riley:
Recently attending college Zach spends all of his free time playing the game. He is short standing at 5'5, and weighing only 160 lbs. He has rather fair skin, and his hair is brown. He has brown eyes. He often wears black clothing not because hes a goth, but because its his favorite color. Having no social life means he clings to the community of online gaming, and has risen to the highest elite.


Name practically translates to Iron Demon. Kogamaru has carved a path of death, and destruction through the online arenas earning a reputation as a swift and deadly killer. Zach roleplays Kogamaru to the silent type. Kogamaru stands at 5'11, and weighs about 185 lbs. His muscularly toned body is as much a weapon as his favored nodachi. He has black short hair that is often spiked back. He wears a black ninja garb with black pieces of armor attached to the shoulders, arms, legs, and chest.

Kogamaru is a wise character, and doesnt always travel while in his battle gear. He may wear a black kimono and a bamboo shade over his face. Disguising himself as a traveler instead of a deadly assassin. He has taken to smoking bamboo pipes. To describe Kogamaru as a loner would be inaccurate as he is very loyal to his guild. They took him under their wings, and he is eternally greatful to them.
