It’s a broken world out there. And you are part of it as well. Broken.
In this world, people have to make a choice. Be broken, or to be “whole”. But if you’re “whole”, you will die. Because if you’re whole, you won’t have what it takes to survive. The choice you make marks whether you are a “Fraction”, or a “Whole”.
If a child lives through their harsh childhood to become a teenager, they have to make a decision. Either they give up part of their humanity in the Exchange, a major trait that makes them who they are, in exchange for an ability that can help them with survival. If they choose not to, they basically ensure their own death through that simple phrase, trading their life with humanity. But despite these odds that would seemingly ensure everyone choose to go with a power, the choice is always split into about half to half, and it seems like there is no choice at all.
It has been like this since the first person in history could remember. You are one of those kids, torn between choosing living, but losing part of who you are—or trying to live in a merciless world, without a power of your own.
Meanwhile, some hold doubt. There must be something—or someone—controlling the currents, from afar. If you find it/them, then you will be saving everyone from having to make the horrible choice you have to make right now.
What will you do? What choice will you make? And if you go on the quest to find whatever it is that is manipulating all of you…will you even find the truth? Most importantly, will you make it back?
-The General rules of a RP
-> Please, no perfect characters for the main characters. They can always be likeable, though (unless likability was the trait they abandoned).
-> Try not to too OP your character; OP is fine, but the powers and abilities of all the roleplay characters should be somewhat balanced.
-> Please don’t fight/squabble/argue/perform actions of that sort, in or outside the RP. :D
-> Try not to control other people’s characters…
-For this RP:
-> You’re welcome to make as many OCs as you want, primary or side, however, it is preferable that you have enough time to manage doing so, and the POVs are balanced out (so you don’t just focus on one primary character, you POV for all of them at a balanced rate.)
-> Saves last for 2 days, resaves are permitted; the more characters you have, I might extend the time, or you can request for more time.
-> Try to post every 3 days, at least. Inform us when you will be inactive, as well, please.
-> Have fun!
Some things to know about the form:
-Please be as specific as possible to avoid confusion.
-Please don’t provide contradictory information about the character (such as being level-headed and rash)
-Please be specific about their appearance: Eye color, hair color, eye shape, hair shape, face shape, body physique, height, skin color, et cetera.
-Background can be revealed later in the RP, or you can generalize/specify it here right now. Your choice. :)
-Go all out with the appearance; they can look realistic or anime-style, I don’t mind.
-Go all out with the clothing. :D However, please follow at least a basic code, which is it has to be appropriate.
If you read this far, I applaud you. Please remember to remove the parentheses from the form. :)
-The choice being made refers to: Option 1; choosing a power, and Option 2; choosing to live on without any powers and try to fend for yourself
-The power is only for if you chose Option 1; it must be approved by me. It is only one power (1), not more.
-The Abandoned Trait, if you chose that during the Exchange, must have been a major part of the former personality the character had. It does not have to relate to the power you choose for your character, if you’re going with Option 1. The trait abandoned by the character must remain constant throughout the roleplay unless a twist is specified, however, it cannot change permanently back to the original (unless stated).
- Please know the difference between “power” and “ability”. If you’re going with Option 2, your character probably has favorable abilities. Do not confuse this with “power”; abilities are natural and possible for a normal human, whereas powers are leaning towards fantasy, and the non-existent world.
-For their personality, please be very thorough and if you chose Option 1, please include the Abandoned Trait in more detail, such as how it changed them from their original personality. You can also include fears, quirks, likes, dislikes, habits, etc.
-You can include crushes and ships, and LGBTQ+ is acceptable; however, please respect one another, and if one person doesn’t agree, don’t press the point. Ask the other person if you want so-and-so to have a crush on another character, etc. If you have a preference with anything, just don’t accept it. They’ll understand. :D If you’re comfortable, you could add a preference in the Crush/Ship section (“Closed”, “Not Open”)
-Definitely expect feedback from me, xD.
-For “Other”, you can put anything I missed, or that you would like to add, and if you would like, questions, comments, concerns, etc.
-Be creative! You can add in sections that I missed, if you’d like :D.
-The Exchange: Meaning the choice having to be made when a child reaches teen age, either to trade a trait for a power, or to try and live on without any powers.
-The Abandoned Trait: The trait that was given up when a teenager chooses to trade it for a power. It becomes completely separated from their original personality, and cannot come back.
-The Fraction: Those who chose Option 1.
-The Whole: Those who chose Option 2.
