The first WMBQ role play in nearly a year... hope you enjoy. Saviors of the Ultimatum PLOT 5,000 years ago, the Supreme Deity Nintendo came into existence out of pure will. He, in turn, created the universe, which He named after Himself. There were many worlds in this universe, but none of them intersected with any others. They were, in His mind, perfect. He watched the Mushroom Kingdom, Dreamland, Hyrule, and all of the other worlds with happiness as their inhabitants led healthy, prosperous lives with no conflict. However, this period of innocence was not eternal. After 4,000 years, evil and corruption had become a regular part of society. Demons such as Bowser, Ridley, Ganondorf, and Tabuu came and went, leaving violence, death, and sadness in their wakes. Heroes fought hard and died, but even they couldn’t stop evil itself. Supreme Deity Nintendo grew sad with His universe, and so he considered destroying it so he could start anew and prevent evil from coming into existence. However, he kept the innocent inhabitants of the worlds in mind, so he decided to create a new world called Forao (pronounced FOR-ow, as in cow, not glow) which he filled with magic, strange monsters, and even some basic technology. He told himself that if this world could stay innocent, then he would let the rest of the universe remain. He simply called this private deal The Ultimatum. 200 years of innocence passed in Forao, but even that was interrupted by a sorcerer named Cateraun who had acquired so much magical power that he went insane. After taking political power by force, he started a reign of terror, killing off all threats to his near omnipotence along with myriads of innocents, and kidnapping and sometimes killing princesses of the land to disrupt what remained of the politics that weren’t controlled by him as well as for classified other reasons. A group of elite sorcerers that called themselves the Sages had predicted The Ultimatum years before Cateraun’s rise to power, and they feared not only for their own land but also for the entire universe. They scrambled to create a portal with which they could summon heroes and warriors from the other worlds of Nintendo, but in their haste, they also opened up links to other universes, such as Sony. They considered this link a stroke of luck, so they went far into Nintendo and other universes in order to find all of the greatest contemporary heroes anywhere. YOUR ROLE Good: You have been summoned by the Sages as one of the heroes to stop Cateraun before it’s too late and the universe is destroyed! You’ll have to work with heroes from other worlds that have just as much glory as you do, so you won’t be as big of a deal as you were back home. Regardless, you’ve got a job to do, so good luck! All that is Nintendo depends upon your success! Evil: You have found the portal and entered the world of Forao. A sorcerer named Cateraun seems to have power, and he promises power in his new government in exchange for your undying loyalty… for an evil mastermind like yourself, any power is good power, so why not take it while it’s offered to you? Maybe you can kill Cateraun and take his entire kingdom for yourself once you’ve earned his complete trust… OUTSET Good: Unexpectedly, you find yourself taken from your home world and sent into Forao. After an initial period of confusion, you have been briefed by the Sages and are prepared, even if nervous and disgruntled (you had no idea that other worlds besides your own existed!), to head out into the field and put a stop to Cateraun. Your story starts after everything has been explained to you. Evil: You have slyly made your way through the portal from your world to Forao. After interrogating some innocents, you have quickly found out that Cateraun is in power. You find him and he quickly makes a deal with you, which you accept… an important part on your end being that you are required to destroy any threats to his authority. SIGN UP FORM Okay, for one, please play as a video game character that everyone will be familiar with. No one wants to deal with some obscure character from a third-party standalone game that failed critically and commercially… it’s just not cool. Be someone that at least two other people are familiar with. You also have the option to role play as Cauteraun. The first satisfactory sign-up or reserve will be accepted, but reservations will only last 24 hours. You may have up to two characters. This may rise or fall depending upon how many people join the role play. NAME: The name of your character. Remember, video game characters only. GAME: From what game/franchise or "world" does your character originate from? AGE: If you don’t know the age of your character, give me an estimate. PICTURE: Please post a picture, but hide it in a spoiler so it doesn’t make the page take a long time to load. PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 1-3 paragraphs describing the picture. PERSONALITY: 1-3 paragraphs on your character’s personality. If they don’t speak, like Link or the main character in Pokemon, invent a personality for them. HISTORY: 3-5 paragraphs on your character’s personal history and how it has formed who he or she is. TRAITS: What makes your character special? Are they a good leader? Are they courageous? Are they determined? Or do they possess some physical advantage like an enchanted weapon or a big gun? Not much is needed here; just a line or two will suffice. UNIVERSAL CHARACTERS The following characters are important residents of Forao that will have significant roles in the story. They are free to be bunnied by anyone, as they are different from the characters that you have been designated to role play as. -Aroen the Great Sage: Leader of the Sages Yeah he’s the only one so far. I haven’t evolved the plot beyond what you’ve already read, so new characters may be added to the list, but so far, he’s the only one. I’ll likely write his sign-up later, but if someone else beats me to it and writes a good sign up for him, great! Less work for me! But a sign-up for him will be up within three days no matter what. Until then, he cannot be role played as. RULES 1) No godmodding. Even if you’re Cateraun, I expect you to limit his extreme power. 2) No bunnying. Bunnying means that you take control of another person’s character. Even if you’re fighting them, you mustn’t declare their reaction. 3) Post length is limited to 3 lines in the default WiiChat skin, but try to make it longer than that if you can. Spelling and syntax checks are required. 4) Don’t make every post insanely long… those can be a pain to read and often discourage other members from posting. One every now and then is fine, but don’t make it a regular thing. 5) Keep the role playing thread to strictly role playing. All discussion goes in this thread. 6) Don’t quote other posts in the role playing thread. It makes the page take longer to load. 7) If two people post at the same time and their posts have different outcomes of the same event, please decide which post is to be canon in the discussion thread. 8) You must read through this entire post to sign up. To prove that you have, just let me know in your sign up somewhere. Just make it subtle...
