It's the year 200X and things aren't what they used to be. Since the creation of the internet by Dr. Tadashi Hikari the world has come a long way. The highlight of this incredibly advanced new world is the P.E.T (PErsonal Terminal) which is a small handheld device possessed by most humans and used for almost everything. E-mail, phonecalls, news letters. There is nothing electronic that the P.E.T can't do. But the biggest highlight of the P.E.T is the network navigator (navi) that resides within each of them. These navis protect against not only other navis but also viruses which might try to attack them. Each of them is equipped with natural abilities in addition to battle chips which greatly boosts their powers. But all has not been well in this advanced version of earth in recent times. Following the mass deletion of a building full of high ranking Japanese officials by a Netopian navi, as well as the bombing of the Japanese embassy in Netopia in the real world, war has erupted among the two countries. The motivation behind the attacks was never revealed. The war has spread from the real world and into the cyber world, with more casualties each day. All this while an even darker force looms in the shadows, waiting to make their own move. Terms to Know These are some terms which will be important througout the course of the r.p: P.E.T- this is a handheld device which houses an operators navi and allows the operator to communicate with the navi Operator- This is the human who operates a navi Battle Chips- These are small chips that can be inserted into a slot in the P.E.T to give a navi extra power. There are three power categories for battle chips. standard chips which are plentiful and average and are of average power, mega chips which are more powerful and less common and giga chips which are rare and very powerful. Players can choose to create custom chips or use cannon chips. Synchro-level- The level of synchronization between a navi and operators mind and soul. It is gauged on an index of 1-10 Cross-Fusion- This is the ability of a navi and operator to merge into one being in the human world. In order to achieve this one must have a synchro level of 7 and up. Free synchro-level tests are done at the Officials centers in each country, especially due to the war. Full-Synchro- A perfect level 10 cross-fusion which temporarily perfects all character techniques Busters- These are weapons which are exclusive to the navis that possess them, and cannot be granted by battle-chips. Each character may have one buster Dark Chips. These are battle-chips which are equivalent to mega-chips but have several side effects including addiction, corruption of body, mind and soul, shortening of lifespan and eventual death. Use of these chips is illegal. Organizations and Ranks Their are several ranks that can be obtained in the r.p and these range from C-S rank. C Class Navis- Navis who possess average power and mostly standard battle-chips B Class Navis- These navis possess above average powers, mostly standard chips and some mega-chips A class Navis- They possess exceptional skill and power and have mostly mega-chips S Class Navis- They possess extraordinary natural skill and power and have a giga-chip N.B: Class upgrades must by applying at the local Officials center.

The Net-police are the Netopian equivalent of the Officials in Japan. You can also play as part of the civillian faction. There is also a third faction known as the Darkloids which will be available to play as as the r.p progresses.
