It is 2044. Humanity has wasted most of its natural resources and now lays in a dormant, desolated heap with no hope of fruitful return to prosperity. The poor live in "Stacks", skyscraper-esque motor homes 'stacked' one on top of the next, supported by ladders and supports, making it somewhat similar to a poor excuse for an apartment complex. However, this is not a tale of post-apocalyptic woe. For, within this place, humanity lives it's days in what is the virtual utopia of the OASIS. A sprawling universal simulation with thousands of worlds, players live out their lives in peaceful bliss, roleplaying, teaching, or doing almost anything they can imagine. That is, until the creator of this blissful reality, Jim Halliday, passes away. A rich philanthropist, he leaves a challenge to all players of the game. Find the Three Keys, Copper, Jade and Gold, to acquire his fortune, which is billions in number. This is the story of the players of the game, where they will be hunting for the Keys, or just living out a peaceful life within the OASIS Simulation. Players will be required to write at an Intermediate/Adept Level, which will mean at least 5+ lines of prose with decent grammar, punctuation and spelling. There will be some PVP within the game, and whoever loses the combat will lose their progress as their character, as well as any items they have collected while hunting for the Copper, Jade and Gold Keys.
