"Hello, and welcome to the world of Nonexistence, where those who no longer exist continue to live on as ideas. If you're here, it means you've died. If there are no questions, I will begin the guided tour immediately." Helo, fellow Iwaku roleplayers. I'm here to present a roleplay idea for what I like to think of as a very unique one. The basic premise is set around a world where things that don't exist (or have ceased doing so) do exist. Imagine a plane where Santa is real. A place where all the myths and legends of the world we know "exist". Such a place is the world of Nonexistence. It goes deeper than that though. Much deeper. The Concept When people die, this is where they go, albeit for a short or long period of time. How it works is this; when someone dies, they still exist in the minds of people they knew, but now they only exist as an idea of what once. It is these thoughts that lead departed souls to the world of Nonexistence. However, just as ideas are drawn here, so are they lost. When enough people stop believing or thinking of something, it completely ceases to exist. When this happens to a deceased person's soul, they turn into a cube, much like the one in the image above. Said cube is what is considered their "essence of existence". Umu, the character that I will play, acts as a sort of overseer through all of this. She has a past of her own. General Information Now that the concept explaining is out of the way, I can explain what the main focus of the roleplay will be. First off, I'd like to mention that every single character played in this roleplay will, at some point or another, disappear and leave behind an essence of existence. That being said, it is advised against joining if you aren't okay with such a thing in roleplays. I would like to point out that when your character is completely forgotten in the real world will be up to each individual person. The biggest focus of this roleplay will be on character interaction and fleshing out each character's past. There will be some action, but it isn't the high point. When I come up with a character sheet, personality and history will not be included. I want for these things to be delved into during the roleplay. Remember that the character you'd be playing as would be someone who has died and no longer exists in the sense that we in the real world use it. As a side note, amnesia will be permitted. As those still reading this may have guessed, this roleplay is meant to be very deep. To adhere to such a standard, I'm looking at a preference in those with sufficient writing capabilities. Because of the lack of a personality or history section in the character sheet, I would ask that anyone interested include a writing sample (be it a fresh sample, or a link to the most recent IC post you've made) so that I can make sure that everyone is where I'd like them to be. I'm still fleshing things out as far as planning this roleplay goes, but anyone who might be interested and wants to submit a writing sample early will be more than welcome to help me out with that part. Below is a rough sample of what the character sheet will look like. Sample Character Sheet (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Sample Character Sheet (open) Sample Character Sheet (close) Name (first or full, either is fine): Gender: Age (any is fine; people of all ages die): Appearance (typed description or image, preferably anime in art style): Cause of Death: Flower Representation (pick a flower that best represents your character; plot related): Character Theme (optional): History/Personality (for those of you who want to join and feel obligated to do such sections out of habit; very optional and NOT REQUIRED): Writing Sample (fresh writing or link; bonus points to those who do a death scene as an intro to their character): Post Header Image (a character image to appear at the top of each of your posts; optional, but preferred): Note that the character sheet posted is subject to change, and I would prefer if no one fill it out until enough interest has been fostered and I make an official OOC thread. I'm looking for at least five characters (excluding my own) to start. Multiple characters are allowed and encouraged. If you have any questions at all regarding the concept or other information, please feel free to ask. Thank you for reading, and I hope you'll be interest in joining if you like the idea!
