Prolouge Part I – Advertisment
Suppose that in the future, gaming systems had increased in quality to the point where a person didn’t just see the game, hear it, move and the character moved, or any combination of the above, but they quite literally were injected into the base game template, ceasing to exist in real life but for a backup genetic copy, any number of which could then be sent into the game to assist if necessary. Complete loss would eject them back into reality. Of course, to the outer physical world, no time passed at all but in the player’s mind. This technology might be wildly popular in the future, possibly, but the future is now. At least, somewhat. A group of ten of the best young video gamers will be chosen to test this new technology. Over varied games they may go, but the overall experience they had will be the determining factor in if this is mass produced. Will you be one of those first ten, who leads the charge?

Prolouge Part II – The Story (Futuristic Background Info)
The applicants were selected, and all tested positive in the final examinations. They bravely went through the pains this would take, including having monitoring chips put in their heads. These would keep track of their statuses, as well as contain advice. Then, through the prototype portal they went, to their respective places. All seemed well…too well. Then, it happened. An overactive day and newly activating magnetic field was all it took, and several components at the nearby electric plant flickered ceaselessly. Traveling down the line, the resounding power surges wrecked the equipment, as well as messing with the monitoring chips. As the reality/VR portal broke, all its data fused. Now, all ten find themselves again together in this newly muddled world. They must wander, fight, and search to find their way out. This raises questions as to what would happen when they got back? They would remain the same, as the researchers agreed amongst themselves. They would have to live with it until a way to ‘cure’ their condition was found.

Jake

Link
No description really necessary. From Legend of Zelda.
No special abilities, just a sword, and a tunic stuffed with awesome items.
So, yeah. This sounds a lot like H@ck, a game that Rokun was trying to host on Roleplayers.

[Please also note that a character can only be taken once. Also, I have never heard of this ‘Roleplayers’ place.]

Name: Nara
Video game character: Gandrayda
Age: 11
Description: Primarily purple, female. Appears in Metroid Prime: Corruption
Abilities: Shapeshifting, [and from what I can gather] limited energy wave projection attacks.
ORI: No exact age, as ability to alter shape makes it utterly impossible to judge. However, psychologically, tests put her age around a child’s.

Heh. Like where this is going. Also, had to edit.

I think you mean psychologically, not physiologically.

Yes it was.

DAMN YOU SPELL CHECK!

 
Flag Post

Physiologically didn’t show up on spell check because its actually a word.

Monopoly

Very rich and can bankrupt you. Can also send you to jail.

Walford, two things: first, you’re not working against the others here, just to be sure you know that; and second, I need your character’s original name from before they entered the game world. Until you have that posted, I can’t enter your name in the system.

I know that, but its the game. Mr Rich then.

[Perhaps you character’s pre-game name should be Richard, instead of Mr. Rich? Or possibly Hob? Just a normal first name.]

[Not to be discouraging, but is there a specific name for the character? That’s sort of what I was looking for, please make one up if there’s not another option. Just calibrating all the info.

In other news…
The game is open! For the time being everyone will be getting to the testing lab and waiting for the others to arrive.]

Richard it is.

Are we restricted to console games and the like, or can we use internet games as a character source too?

[I would prefer console games, easier to research.]

Think about it from a modding perspective. He’s got to treat this as you would a video game. He’s got to curve our character’s powers properly, and so on. Console games are easier to do that with. Like take Link. There’s already a set of pre-defined items and upgrades that link can recieve. And then take creeper, like you used in Polar. How does the creeper upgrade? Since console games are more in-depth, it’s easier to do these things. Also, Link has his own wiki. Creeper does not. Easier to find that info.
