    ::PLOT OVERVIEW::
    Capax (kay-pax) is a small, close knit coastal town, population 13,944. Located in the north east and away from most tourist traps, the town gets little attention, and that's how the citizens like it. Nothing interesting ever happens there, either. Occasionally there are celebrations--the Fourth of July celebrations, the Capax Public High School end of the year parties--but Capax is largely a sleepy little town with little excitement.

    This story focuses on a group of interconnected teenagers living in Capax. Each of them begin to notice strange things happening around them in the town; strange things that others don't seem to see. Some are determined to figure out the source of it. Others are bent on minding their own business and living their lives. But the collision is imminent.

    The world is composed of an infinite number of universes, all running parallel to one another. Some are vastly different, while others are scarily similar. Each has it's own timeline, and continues on forever, even after the death of mankind. And, as a rule, they will never collide. They will never touch. If time could be viewed as a line, these timelines would be exactly that; eternal, parallel, lines.

    But the laws have been broken, and the universes are beginning to collide and merge into one another. The signs began slowly--missing people, crazy weather, extinct animals reappearing--and grew bigger with time. But the people of this universe and timeline know little about the science behind time and the universe. They simply think that their world is dying, that mental illness is rampant. And, as such, the destruction of existence as we know it is inevitable. Unless a ragtag group of teenagers can manage to fix it. We'll see about that.

    ::GAME MECHANICS::
    Every main character will fit a character archetype (archetypes listed below). These archetypes are vague backgrounds for the characters. Their use will appear in the IC through the use of GM posts. GM posts will come both via IC and via PM. For example, the player of archetype #2 may receive a PM concerning a memory their character has remembered that has plot relevance.

    Players are expected to participate in plot planning (and will be rewarded for cooperation with others in the group and for sharing their ideas, as well as activity) and will also be expected to play multiple characters. This can include side characters as well as NPCs (family, friends, acquaintances) from time to time. Some players may eventually be given the ability to play plot specific characters. For now, I will play a few plot specific characters, one main character of my own, and side characters.

    The story will take place over several chapters that mark the progression of Capax and the colliding universes. We will follow a day/night cycle marked by GM posts (though we may skip some days for timeskips if needed) and GM events will be posted to keep things moving. These events can be character specific or worldwide.

    One spot available! Archetype #2!
    Please read these thoroughly before joining. If you have any questions please ask!

    1. All Iwaku rules apply.

    2. Be able to post 2-3 paragraphs (grammar and spelling checked) at least once a week. After two weeks, you will receive a warning. After two warnings you will be removed from the roleplay. Please talk to me if you will have trouble with activity! I will understand.

    3. One character archetype per player.

    4. You can have as many characters as you'd like, but please only make sure you can handle the number of characters you create.

    5. Be prepared to play side characters and to control NPCs when needed.

    6. Also be prepared to contribute to the plot and planning. Those that do will be rewarded!

    7. No godmodding (unless a player has been inactive and has left you stuck, in which case you may godmod to get your character unstuck), metagaming, powerplaying, etc.

    8. I have final say on CS sheets. I will always tell you what is wrong and help you to fix the problem. Unless you are rude or inconsiderate I will gladly help.
    There are several character archetypes you can pick from for your main character. They are broad and only are meant to dictate a vague background/event that is affecting your character. More information will be revealed in the IC.

    You are the older of two siblings. Your younger sister is someone you care about very much, and you've always been close. Often your parent(s) leave you to the job of babysitting/entertaining, and you're totally cool with that. But one day your precious little sister is mysteriously gone without a trace. You'd do anything to get her back.
    You have a very good memory. Vocab tests and memorizing the periodic table were easy tasks in school for you. You can recall in beautiful detail things that occurred in your childhood, and few details of the day before escape you. But lately you've been confusing things. Not because your memory is failing... but because you have new, foreign memories. You definitely don't have an Aunt Edna, and your family never went to Tokyo! What is going on?
    History may or may not be your thing, but either way, you've been getting some weirdly historic dreams. Last night you had a dream about the events at Pearl Harbor--and when you consulted Google about it, it was scarily accurate. Your dreams reveal things to you that you never learned in school. Even weirder... some of your dreams can predict the future. That dream about your mom buying the wrong cereal wasn't just a feeling. She really did buy the wrong stuff! How dare she!
    You were never popular. You had a small circle of friends, but sometimes you even wondered if they were only your friends out of pity. But things have changed. The most popular kid at Capax Public Highschool has asked you to join their clique. While some of the popular kids are a little skeptical of you, they've largely welcomed you with open arms. Why? I guess you'll find out.
    You don't believe in ghosts... or do you? There's no doppelgangers involved, here, but the people you've been seeing around town are rather strange, especially the one wearing nothing but dirty fur coats. When you ask your friends what they think, they just say that you're crazy. Nobody else sees these specters. Are you insane?


    You literally have no idea why you're living in Capax. You woke up in a strange home, with foreign people that somehow know your name and call you family. But you don't remember them at all. I don't know about you, but I wouldn't claim amnesia. The doctors might find weird shit going on in that brain of yours.
    Yesterday, you woke up and your mom served you the meal of whole grain waffles doused in half a bottle of syrup that you always eat before school. Today, when she served you the same, you almost threw up. You've no idea why, but almost all your interests have changed. Your favorite candy is no longer the Milky Way bar, and you're rather disgusted by all the clothes in your wardrobe. Even further, you don't like a good majority of your friends, and you no longer identify as the same gender you did yesterday. "Momma" is now "Mom" and you're definitely not the same person anymore... are you?
    You might be perceptive or your intuition might be deader than Caesar, but either way, you've recently developed this really cool (and helpful!) ability to anticipate what people will say. It's not consistent, but sometimes you can tell what somebody is going to say a minute or two before they say it. I'd go ask them out, now, before this crazy power goes away!
    You thought it was just your mind playing tricks on you, but that random guy in the crowd that looked oddly familiar was real. And they look just like you. Uncannily so. Perhaps the only difference are in hair cut and clothing style. The one wearing a white jumpsuit was especially strange. And they seem to be trying to get your attention...
    Your parents are picture perfect. They love each other to the ends of the world and would do anything for their family. They even look perfect in every picture together! But one morning you woke up and one of your parents was missing... and replaced with a new step-parent. Your mom/dad doesn't want to talk about the event that lead to your other parent going MIA, and thinks it's weird that you're asking. "You were there!" But you don't remember it.

    Feel free to reserve a character archetype and post a WIP of your CS. Alter appropriately for any side characters.

    Additionally: please try to make characters diverse in both gender, personality, and background as well as race. I don't want to have to make a male/female limit, but I will to keep things balanced.

    Format as you'd like.

    Anais Rousseau (Amber) - #1 - Rainjay

    ::BASICS::
    Name: Anais Rousseau (though most call her Amber)
    Age: 17
    Gender: F
    Sexuality: Ask her and find out
    Archetype Number: 1

    ::LOOKS::
    Description: Amber has brown/blonde hair that extends past her shoulders, green eyes, and a mixed skin tone that appears nigh white in proper lightning, and more coppery in the dark. She stands about 5'10" (177 cm) with an average build--nothing special, though she goes through some basic efforts to exercise and maintain her health. She dresses in loose clothing, nothing of expense, often found at thrift shops and used goods stores.
    Notable Features: Amber is rarely seen without a long sleeved shirt or jacket, to cover the tattoo sleeve on her left arm.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Brief Personality: Anais is an outspoken girl, tired of living in her family's shadow but not quite sure what to do about it besides fight and argue against her parents. Causing trouble is what she's notable and known for around town. She's learned to be manipulative and provoking, anything to get what she wants. She's often somewhat crude and speaks without thinking, though she's also known to be exceptionally well mannered and kind to peoples of her choice. Past being an angry and melodramatic teenager, she's looking for a friend and to have fun.

    Brief History: Anais grew up with a business man father and a just as professional mother, both of which hated each other with a passion equal to that of love. Both her parents and all of her siblings, two older brothers, an older sister, and a younger sister, are highly competitive (to the point of becoming straight up assholes), creating a rather toxic home environment. When her older siblings fled the coop, she was left to take care of her youngest sibling, who she has bonded quite well with over the years despite it all.

    Francesca "Franny" Kingsley - #3 - Page 3 - Darkflames13

    ♛⋮ B A S I C S ◣
    Name: Francesca "Franny" Kingsley
    Age: 18 years old
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Heterosexual
    Archetype Number: #3

    ♛⋮ L O O K S ◣

    Physical Characteristics
    Franny has long brown hair which she often keeps in twintails. Like her hair, her eyes are also of a brown colour. She has a small mouth. The phrase, "You look just like your mother" is something she commonly hears from people who've seen her mother and then see her. Even her father says the same thing which amuses both her and her mother.

    Clothing Style
    Franny can often be seen rocking a pair of shorts and a tee. She's a rather conservative person and thus, refuses to wear shorts that are too short. Her signature attire consists of a navy jumper with a white 3/4 sleeve shirt underneath and her favourite red cap.

    ♛⋮ C H A R A C T E R ◣
    Personality
    Franny is a simple girl. She's humble -- perhaps even too humble. Franny has a habit of denying almost any compliment thrown at her (except when it was about how her family was rather ideal; it was something she could never deny). While Franny is kind most of the time, she could still turn into a rather scary bitch when provoked; though it usually takes a lot to actually rile her up as she's quite known for her patience and tolerance. Because of this, many describe her as a rather mature individual, something that Franny disagrees greatly -- not only because of her humility but also because she knows how childish she could be at times.

    History
    Average and very normal; these were the best words to describe Franny's history. She was an only child. Both parents lovingly raised her. Franny love both equally and was very thankful they weren't workaholics who didn't have any time to spare for their child. One would say that Franny had the 'ideal' family, and she would humbly agree with them. Franny was happy that she grew up in such an environment, though sometimes she wished she had a sibling. There came times when she was pleased with viewed her life as dull and boring. Needless to say, Franny craves for some form of drama and excitement to enter her life.


    Sahran Dhib - #4 - Page 4 - Rai'Athar

    ::BASICS::
    Name:
    Sahran Dhib (sae-rahn thib)
    Age: 17
    Gender: Male
    Archetype Number: 4

    ::LOOKS::
    Image:
    Credit to haepanda.
    Description: 5'6"; light brown skin tone; muscular athletic build; black hair; brown eyes. Sahran Typically wears loose fit jeans and muscle shirts or t-shirts with hoodies. The pants don't hang low, and he always wears a belt with them. His Preferred footwear: casual hiking shoes. Often times, on sunny days, he'll wear his black baseball cap.
    Notable Features: Grim face; bad haircut; deep, raspy voice.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Brief Personality:
    Introverted, intuitive, (introspective) feeler and (very) judgmental, yet still dominantly perceiving.
    Brief History: Sahran's parents died in a house fire. He's an only child. He currently lives in his trainer's basement. Martial Arts is the only reason he's still alive. In middle school, Sahran was the biggest loser in his class and probably the school too. All the boys and girls made fun of him or just pushed him around for no good reason. There's always that one kid who gets it more worse than anyone else --welcome to Sahran's childhood. This harassment, physical and mental, was so severe that he seriously considered suicide. It wasn't until Sahran ran into Yugo, his Sensei, that his life changed for the better. Yugo taught him to fight, to protect himself. In grade seven, he got suspended for kneeing a girl in the face. It was purely in self-defense. She attacked Sahran with a hard plastic flute case after he had knocked out her boyfriend. The boyfriend was the instigator of the fight, obviously. Eventually, he developed a bad rep, always challenging anyone that made fun of him to a fight. If they shoved, he punched or kicked. In time most people would learn that Sahran was the wrong guy to pick on because he fought back, fiercely. It just wasn't worth it. Now, in his last year of high-school (Capax High), the popular kids that hated Sahran's guts started being nice all of a sudden. Sahran never forgot how these people treated him when he was a helpless runt. Befriending the assholes that tormented him in elementary and half his middle school career would be foolish, but Sahran's desire to belong seemed to overcome the reproach of his bad memories. Trust but confirm was initially his maxim for dealing with his newfound friends. Only recently did he start to hesitantly lower his guard around them.
    Other: Exceptional rock thrower; Yugo cuts his hair.

    Wesley 'Wes' Chambers - #5 - Page 2 - Auntie Phaz

    ::BASICS::
    Name: Wesley 'Wes' Chambers
    Age: 17
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Gay

    Archetype Number: 5

    ::LOOKS::
    Description: Around 5'8 with dark brown skin and darker brown eyes, Wes has a medium build and while not out of shape, he doesn't boast a particularly toned physique. He usually keeps his hair cut fairly short and cropped close to his head. His face is framed by a pair of thick but well-groomed sideburns that extend down to his jawline. High cheekbones sit above a slightly squarish nose and a pair of lips that are usually pursed into a stern-looking frow, which in turn give way to a narrow, pointed chin. Wes is typically clothed pretty casually, favoring jeans and a sweatshirt on most days, although he does occasionally venture into wearing items with a little more flair like tank tops

    Notable Features: Wears glasses practically 24/7 as he is nearly blind without them. Also has a single silver stud piercing in his left earlobe.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Brief Personality: Constantly observant but seemingly indifferent to most things that occur around him, Wes often appears withdrawn or even outright hostile to others. He rarely reacts to what's said or done to him with more than a standard, perfunctory response. The exception to this is when he's extremely insulted or offended by someone, in which case he lashes out with a dry yet devastating wit, his comebacks seemingly tailor-made for the sore spots of his target. From time to time his uniquely acerbic sense of humor comes to light in more benign ways, earning him respect or at the very least recognition from adults and his more mature peers.

    Brief History: Wes' family moved to Capax when he was very young, and as such it is the only place he can rightfully call home, having few memories of living anywhere else. This is at odds with his sense of place in the world, since although he was very outgoing and considered extremely bright as a child, he always felt like something of an outsider. He gained some perspective on this when at the age of 13 he realized he was gay, something he soon regretted ever having shared after a few of his friends and family had less than glowing reactions to the news.

    Following this abortive attempt at coming out, Wes became isolated and aloof. The rejection and disappointment he felt played a large part in building the coarse exterior he now presents to the world. However, he now finds being 'that gay kid' is not such a terrible burden to live with, and he has a small but trustworthy group of friends that accept him, bristles and all, with whom he feels he can open up more and be himself.

    Unknown/Crow - #6 - Page 1 - Icy

    ::BASICS::
    Name: Unknown; dubbed Crow for convenience and reasons below.
    Age: Anything from 16-19
    Gender: Male
    Sexuality: Bisexual (I have zero experience writing anything but hetreosexual characters so let's go for a fucking challenge, eh?)
    Archetype Number: 6; memory loss

    ::LOOKS::
    Crow has dark-brown eyes, slightly squinted despite his otherwise typically 'caucasian' features, and root-dyed blonde hair of medium length, shaved at the sides with a smooth transition. He is slightly skinner than the norm and of average height. There is a seemingly nonsensical tattoo etched onto his right shoulder; a multitude of rough lines running together and across in a chaotic jumble. It bears little resemblance to any noteworthy symbol of our age.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Personality: Contrary to his rather eccentric looks, Crow is quite reserved and soft-spoken, stemming most likely from the insecurities caused him by his memory loss. He seems to adore cats, and judging by some negative physical responses and items found in his possession, a light nicotine addiction.

    History: Crow was found washed up on the shore of Capax by a bypassing homeless man, a dead crow with a ruptured left eye and a walrus baculum lying next to him. His memories seems to have vanished without a trace, and if not gone forever, then perhaps sealed away deeply in the chambers of his mind, locked away from all current access. In his possession is found a brushed sterling Zippo with a tiny amount of lighter fluid left and a pack of half-filled red Lucky Strikes. Nothing more, nothing less.

    Wen Bonheur - #7 - Page 2 - Cephalo

    Gender: Male
    Archetype Number: 7
    L O O K S
    Image:
    Credit to kinohara-kossuta

    Description:
    At an abnormally tall 185 cm, Wen Bonheur used to look something akin to a wraith: unhealthily pale skin in contrast to long, dark hair and brown eyes. The only way to put it would be "unhealthy." Too skinny, too sharp, and too fake. She'd been fond of ill-fitting clothes and too much makeup and product to look healthy. After the Switch (as he's termed it), he'd shorn his hair short and worked on making him actually healthy instead of only appearing so. His face has is no longer so gaunt, and while his skin seems unable to tan, he is no longer so pasty.

    Notable Features:
    His hair is now entirely natural and looks messy when juxtaposed with the put-together formal wear he now favors.
    C H A R A C T E R
    Brief Personality:
    Wen was rude, immature, and prone to fits of temper but was straightforward and simple in what she wanted. He is now a well-mannered, eloquent, and charming gentleman. Quite finicky, prone to being longwinded, and (politely) manipulative, but everyone has their flaws.

    Brief History:
    Wen was born and raised in Louisiana until she moved to Capax when she was 12. In a bid to be regarded as anything other than the new kid with no friends, she did what she could to be liked. Because of this she'd been known to unknowingly bully her peers that didn't fit in. A month since the Switch and he's... content. Confused, startlingly aware of his past misdeeds, and essentially a new person, but alright and trying to fix his life.

    Rachel Hughes - #9 - Page 1 - J_"Kraken"

    ::BASICS::
    Name: Rachel Hughes
    Age: 19
    Gender: F
    Archetype Number: 9

    ::LOOKS::
    Description: Rachel Hughes stands at an average height of 160cm with sun-toned skin. Her build is nothing to boast of, possessing neither lean or bulky muscle mass, though she retains a lithe figure. Dark wavy hair, a brown so tinged with red it is almost mahogany, falls down one side of her head and ends at about elbow-level. Wide, blue eyes rest beneath a slender brow which extends into an equally slender nose. Hughes' face angles downward into a round chin beneath pale pink lips.

    Notable Features: Her eyes are usually bloodshot and lined with dark circles, concealed by a rose-tinted shade of sunglasses more often than not.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Brief Personality: Rachel is often quiet and subdued in public areas, though her close friends describe her to be quite outgoing and warm. Though not unfriendly or hostile, she will not be the one to start a conversation.

    Brief History: Hughes was born and raised in Capax, and though it has been her home for many years, she hates to admit any personal attachment to it. Her interactions with the outside world growing up were minimal with hardly a family vacation even once every four or five years. The youngest of four children in a poor family, Rachel was often ignored even if a trip out of the town came up. Without parental attention or any real role models, she fell prone to a lack of motivation and laziness, dropping out of high school to work at a local gas station. Though naturally gifted, her talents go under-utilized in the local community college.

    Ellis Holland - #10 - Page 4 - neptune

    ::BASICS::
    Name: Ellis Holland
    Age: 17
    Gender: Female
    Sexuality: Questioning
    Archetype Number: 10

    ::LOOKS::
    Description: Ellis is waifish. Standing at around 5'3" tall and weighing in at around one hundred pounds, her lack of proper exercise and poor diet is solely responsible for her weak frame. She has a pale complexion, making her dark eyes look bigger than they seem and stand out that much more. Her sense of style happens to be whatever is the most comfortable--lots of cotton fabrics and muted colors. She has no tattoos or piercings, but often doodles on herself with pens or markers, which results in some interesting temporary designs.

    Notable Features: Long hair. Ellis hasn't had a trim in years, much to the dismay of her parents.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Brief Personality: Ellis has a tendency to rely on sarcasm and wit to get her through most tough situations and she sometimes come off as biting because of it. When she's not annoying others with her smart remarks, she's fairly laid back and tends to go with the flow. She is very loyal to her friends and family and will do whatever she can for them when someone is upset, even if it's nothing more than lending an ear. When faced with strangers, Ellis is quiet but not usually stand-offish and is timid until she gets to know others.

    Brief History: Ellis is the middle child between her old brother, Devin, who is now away at college and her younger younger sister, Gracie, who just started middle school. Her father owns a specialty food shop in town, and her mother is--was--an artist, who worked there as well. Ellis has lived in Capax with her family for her entire life, and she likes it that way.

    Chloe Kademan - Rainjay

    ::BASICS::
    Name: Chloe Kademan
    Age: 19
    Gender: F

    ::LOOKS::
    Image: [​IMG]
    source
    Description: Chloe boasts about her brown skin ("Like a sexy dark chocolate, eh?") and her well styled hair. Au natural means nothing to her when she can have fun and play with what God gave her. With a face that screams "looks can kill", her features angular and her lips plump (she has a great smile), she has the very appearance of being bossy, sour, and demanding. She dresses differently, though, in bright colors and in T-Shirts with logos (Fuck Slavery is only one among her broad range of "I'm an Activist" shirts). She is quite fit, even with a waistline above average, and is proud of herself from her height to her weight to the gorgeous hair on her head.

    ::CHARACTER::
    Brief Personality: Chloe, above all, loves herself as fully as a person possibly can. Her ego is big and she isn't afraid to make it clear she's the boss. While it probably does go as far as OCD, she is obsessive about even the little things, and feels uncomfortable when things like cleaning and organizing don't go her way. However, she's also a very loyal and caring friend. She's got a shoulder for you to lean on and tissues in her back pocket.
    Brief History: She has a normal background, although her mother is the chairwoman of the Board of Public Health and Environment Care and all of her siblings are athletes and A+ students. She moved from New York City to Capax with her family five years ago, and has been trying to transform the city since.

  3. This is an awesome rule. Just saying.

    Also, I'd like to reserve Archetype 2 or Archetype 3 and I'll give the other to the first person who asks for it. Can I do that?
     
  4. No objections here. I'm a little tired atm (11:23 PM here) so I'll probably post CS tomorrow.

    At first glance, Archetype 6 and Archetype 7 really appealed to me. But I'm cool with whatever.
     
  5. I'll reserve the doppelganger archetype - should get a CS up here in a 'lil while.
     
  6. Yes, of course! I'll let you reserve both of them for 12 hours. After that, unless you have a CS WIP posted with one or the other written down, I'll give first person who asks the reserve.

    As with Leif, I'll reserve you down for both for 12 hours and go from there.


    Thanks!

    There's no rush! Sleep is more important :P
     
  7. Reserved! And take your time. No rush.

    Archetype Number: 6; memory loss


    ::LOOKS::
    Crow has dark-brown eyes, slightly squinted despite his otherwise typically 'caucasian' features, and root-dyed blonde hair of medium length, shaved at the sides with a smooth transition. He is slightly skinner than the norm and of average height. There is a seemingly nonsensical tattoo etched onto his right shoulder; a multitude of rough lines running together and across in a chaotic jumble. It bears little resemblance to any noteworthy symbol of our age.


    ::CHARACTER::
    Personality: Contrary to his rather eccentric looks, Crow is quite reserved and soft-spoken, stemming most likely from the insecurities caused him by his memory loss. He seems to adore cats, and judging by some negative physical responses and items found in his possession, a light nicotine addiction.


    History: Crow was found washed up on the shore of Capax by a bypassing homeless man, a dead crow with a ruptured left eye and a walrus baculum lying next to him. His memories seems to have vanished without a trace, and if not gone forever, then perhaps sealed away deeply in the chambers of his mind, locked away from all current access. In his possession is found a brushed sterling Zippo with a tiny amount of lighter fluid left and a pack of half-filled red Lucky Strikes. Nothing more, nothing less.

  12. Are all our characters interlinked in some way before the RP starts? Or is that up to us to decide? I imagine that, since this is a small community, it'll be hard to not have some knowledge of each other.
     
  13. They are meant to be interlinked, yes. However close the characters are is up to you all. They can be friends, rivals, acquaintances. They can see each other regularly at a coffee shop, work at the same place, have classes together at school, be loosely related, dating, in the same gang, club, what have you. It can be subtle or it can be rather noticeable. But what connects them at first is what draws them together after they begin to notice the, er, destruction of their universe.

    So character A may only know character B because they go to the library at the same time, but this crazy happenstance is what eventually brings them together.

    Because eventually, all the characters will know each other. They don't have to like each other, but they'll at the very least be somewhat working with or against them.

  14. I'll be working on finishing up a couple character sheet's myself, though I'm leaving them unposted until they appear in the IC.

  15. I'll wait on Leif and hopefully for one more person to join because I post the IC. It won't be too big a deal if people hop in after we start--it actually might make the beginning less of a exposition dump type deal, which is nice--so it shouldn't be a problem.

  16. They'll just open a door like the respawn in Bioshock Infinite and be in this 'ooi'vurse. It's all good.

  17. This looks interesting and I'd like to reserve archetype #7 if that'd be alright!

  18. Of course! If you have any questions, let me know.
     
  19. I have only one question: when the IC starts, how long ago would the change (but switch seems more appropriate) have been? A week before the IC starts? A day ago? I'd just like to know how much time my character would have to adapt.
