    * Roleplay begins on Feb 20 (Subject to change)*

    |Introduction|

    Oh hello there. Fancy seeing you on such a fine evening as tonight.

    ….

    What’s that? Who am I and what do I want?...Well that’s a bit personal, no?
    All in all, I have some...questions...to ask. I would rather you answer them truthfully...
    Humans are such unique beings in the sense that each and every one of you is given a choice. It is this...dangerous...freedom which determines all that will become and all that has been…Oh sorry, it seems as if I have begun to ramble…
    I rather not waste your precious night so let me get straight to the point…



    If given the choice...the means...the opportunity...Would you rise as a hero and make your name known...or would you fall to the depths of infamy as the villain of times…
    Though for you...you seem...uninspiring at best. Another bland human...boring as the rest.



    Eh?...You disagree?...Really?
    Well then...Prove me wrong...Show me your worth!
    I, Fushinsetsu, will be awaiting your development.

  2. | World Synapse Information |
    | Everyday Life |
    World Synapse is a split between slice of life and supernatural/fantasy action. In this role play, your character starts out as transfer students into Ravenwood Academy. Ravenwood is a private high school located in the fictional city of Portland, Washington. Even if your character is to discover information concerning the supernatural, it does not change the fact that daily life would continue the same.
    School: Your character is a local or transfer student residing within the city or dorms as he/she attends Ravenwood high school. This means if your character is present in the real world, he/she is “required” to attend class as any student would be. Managing one’s time, extra activities, and sleep schedule are all crucial toward gaining reputation and maintaining good academic status within the school.
    Relations: Being a loner is no fun(unless you character enjoys that), but even less fun is the possible danger that lurks in the Fragments and real world alike. Frequent are the allies, yet equally frequent are the possible enemies who would show no mercy to the weak and innocent.
    Misc: Portland is an ordinary city with ordinary days and ordinary lives. Extracurricular activities, part time jobs, hanging out with friends, dates and more! Enjoy your time as much as you can. The future might prove to be grim…or happy?
    | Fragments |
    Fragments are various worlds which exist parallel to our own. Each Fragment has a unique sense of existence which is defined by its appearance, inhabitants, era, and more. How or why Fragments exist is a mystery to all who know of their existence, yet a common theme is the existence of strife, whether obvious or subtle. Artifacts or the presence of a Wielder are required to journey to and from Fragments. Take care in traveling...You might not get to come back home...
    | Artifacts |
    As implied by its name, Artifacts are relics unique to the various Fragments which exist across the plane of existence. While there is no explanation as to why Artifacts exist, they posses incredible powers which they can bestow upon the holder who wields them.
    No two artifacts are the same, and while some may hold tremendous power, others may be a laughable joke at best. Although an Artifact is nothing more than a tool, a unique presence seems to envelop their existence. Perhaps, there is more than is visible to the eye...?

  3. | Rules & Information |
    | General Rules |
    • If you know any aspect of life(work/school/ext) will become a long term burden and prevent you from consistently posting, do not join the rp. (See more in Activity Requirements.)
    • No Mary Sue or Gary Stu characters will be accepted into the rp.
    • No godmodding or powerplaying.
    • World Synapse is an anime roleplay. You must use anime based pictures in your character sheets.
    • Character sheets must be completed within 48 hours after they were started. Automatic rejection will occur otherwise. (If something urgent has come up in life, please contact any of the GMs.)
    • If your character sheet is rejected, there are no seconds chances. Please make sure to thoroughly read all of the rules.

    | Activity Requirements |
    World Synapse is a long term role-play.
    This means the roleplay is slated to last for a long period of time. World Synapse is the spiritual successor of a former roleplay, Zodiac, which had a total lifetime of just under a year. From experience, each arc of Zodiac had a minimum of 600 total posts, and this is a continuing expectation. If you do not believe this is a commitment you can upkeep, then please reconsider joining the roleplay.
    General Posting: Members of this role-play are required to consistently post throughout the entirety of the role-play’s lifetime.
    • If you have upcoming finals that you need to study for, your swamped with homework, or your family is forcing you into a boring vacation, then by all means focus on your life; however, a simple notice of your status is required.
    • See General Rule 1.
    • Posting is not a daily requirement; however, it is highly encouraged. That being said, a post should be expected at a least ever Two days. This rule will be enforced, and inactivity will result in your character’s death.
    Battle/Fight Posting: Plot based battles/fights in World Synapse operate under a 24 hour rule. This means that if you fail to reply within 24 hours, your character is assumed to have been killed, and you will be written an awesome death scene as compensation. This rule is in place to prevent unrealistic expectations in a battle. Failure to post at regularly intervals alludes that your character is effectively AFK on the battlefield. This in turn implies your character is utterly defenseless, a standing target.

    | Writing Requirements |
    World Synapse does not require high level writing skills to participate in the role-play; however, that being said, World Synapse is not a beginners role-play, and there are several guidelines that will be required of anyone pre-existing, or joining the role-play.
    • One liners are not accepted under any circumstances.
    • Two paragraphs are a base minimum for the majority of your posts. If not much is occurring at the time, going below two paragraphs is understandable on a rare occasion; however, generally two paragraphs is long enough to create an effective reply without becoming too much of a burden.
    • Reading Comprehension is a must. If something does not make sense, simply ask the writer of that post for clarification. Do not assume. Miscommunication only leads to further issues, as proceeding posts, based off misleading information, creates extra work in the form of later corrections.
    • Be capable of developing your character in a believable manner. Your character is not a doll without an existence for itself. As time passes in the role-play, the realm of World Synapse will change, and so should your character with it. Emotions will flare; happiness will be felt; tears will be shed.
    • Be imaginative. World Synapse is a very open ended role-play that allows for a lot of leeway in terms of character interactions. Anything that stays within the bounds of the role play’s setting and can be portrayed in a believable manner, given your character’s position, is acceptable.
    • Be independent. Interaction and plot will not be constantly thrown at your characters at all times. You must be capable of developing interaction for yourself and others around you. This allows for the world to feel much more natural and believable in nature.
    | General Information |
    | Death |
    No character is immune from death.
    While it is not entirely common, death can and will happen throughout the course of the
    role-play. Not everybody in the realm of World Synapse is a friendly person. Antagonists with the desire to kill, exist, and it is up to your own observation and reactions to survive through the days.
    • If your character is killed, you are allowed to make a new character to rejoin the role-play.
    • If your character is killed, he/she was killed for a reason and under a fair manner. Please do not create drama in an attempt to revive your character. Accept your fate and move on.
    | Time |
    Whether you post that day or not, time in World Synapse will continue to move forward.
    Remember that role-players move with time, not the other way around.
    One day in the role-play is equivalent to seven days in real life.
    Real time: Day One & Day Two | Day Three & Day Four & Day Five | Day Six & Day Seven
    RP time: Morning | Afternoon | Evening
    (7 real time days = 1 role-play day)
    For your character sheet, the date of your character’s signature is the tenth of July 2015.
    | Inventory |
    In World Synapse, items can be an important factor under certain circumstances in battle and everyday life. That being said, after every post, it is required that you display, in a spoiler, what your character is currently carrying in his inventory.
    Example:

    Post: John, who realized there was no food in the fridge, decided to make a trip to the market.

    Inventory:
    Inventory (open)

    Wallet
    $20
    Pencil
    Shopping List

    | Fragments |
    Fragments are various worlds which exist parallel to our own. Each Fragment has a unique sense of existence which is defined by its appearance, inhabitants, era, and more. How or why Fragments exist is a mystery to all who know of their existence, yet a common theme is the existence of strife, whether obvious or subtle. Artifacts or the presence of a Wielder are required to journey to and from Fragments. Take care in traveling...You might not get to come back home...
    | Artifacts |
    As implied by its name, Artifacts are relics unique to the various Fragments which exist across the plane of existence. While there is no explanation as to why Artifacts exist, they posses incredible powers which they can bestow upon the holder who wields them.
    No two artifacts are the same, and while some may hold tremendous power, others may be a laughable joke at best. Although an Artifact is nothing more than a tool, a unique presence seems to envelop their existence. Perhaps, there is more than is visible to the eye...?
    General Information:
    • All Artifacts are created and distributed by the GMs of this role-play. As of now, there is no exception to this rule. You are not allowed to create, find, or start the roleplay with any Artifact unless approved by either Voltaire or Tsu.
    • Artifacts and their powers are entirely visible by Artifact wielders and ordinary humans, alike. Because of this fact, take care in utilizing your Artifacts in the real world.
    • Artifacts are required to journey to Fragments. If your artifact is lost, you will be unable to return to any Fragment, even if you have previously been there.
    • Artifacts have varying costs to use their power. In addition, various types of artifacts also exist. More information will be below.
    Policy: Artifacts can only be created and distributed by the GMs. More or less, every member of the role-play should end up with an Artifact; however, the timing under which they are given out is based on several factors. Those who regularly post, develop their character well, and develop their character in a sense that meshes with the artifact at hand, will be given priority over others. Please do not beg or whine in an attempt to force a GM to give you a Artifact. It will not help your chances of getting one, but rather, only make them worse. In addition, if your Artifact seems weaker than another, please do not complain about this fact. Everything in this role-play is designed with a particular intention in mind.
    Artifact Wielders: Receiving an Artifact bestows a fraction of its power upon your character who becomes known as a Wielder. Like everything in life, usage of this power is not a skill that is immediately learned. More than likely, your character will be initially weak in terms of power and ability. As time passes and your character develops their skill, an Artifact’s true potential can be unlocked.
    Non-Wielders: Just because a character or NPC lacks an Artifact does not make them any less of a potential threat. An Artifact simply unlocks its power for a Wielder’s usage. The Wielder’s skill and capabilities are limited by his/her own body. For example, a non-wielder with intense martial arts training could possibly dispatch an Artifact Wielder with ease, depending on the potential power at hand.
    Current Artifacts: A list and description of the Artifacts will be compiled in the role-play’s OOC chat.

  9. Eh, I doubt there was any question of me transferring over to this rp. Consider me in; I'll go through the information and churn out a CS within the next eight hours or so depending on... circumstances. Thanks for not letting the everything completely suffocate, begin hemorrhaging from the brain and die by the way.
