<<Crimson Infinite>> Online
By: Chaos War Reborn
Note from the GM: Hello! Welcome to my latest RP "<<Crimson Infinite>> Online or CIO, pronounced "Sigh-Oh!". This RP will take place in a virtual reality MMORPG. It's rated PG14 for a reason. Do not be fooled by the introduction, I can assure you things will escalate very quickly! If you have any questions let me know. I would like to make it profoundly clear that I am not an authority in science (obviously) so please just go with what I have? Ok? Ok, thanks!
~Chaos War Reborn
The year is 20xx. The world’s most complex virtual reality system, the EX – Reality Breaker, consisting of a wireless headset and visor, has just been introduced to the world. The system was made with one idea in mind, to support the first ever VRMMORPG, <<Crimson Infinite>> Online, popularly referred to as simply “CIO”.
The EX – Reality Breaker truly pushed the boundaries of virtual reality, successfully creating a seamless gaming experience via the nervous system. The aerodynamic headset and visor sent encoded electric signals to the brain, effectively emulating all five senses within the virtual world. The visor read the game’s data and projected the entire experience to the user; it “transported” them into the game or so to speak.
Problem with virtual reality systems of prior was that in-game movement was limited to the area where one played. For this very reason, the EX – Reality Breaker shut off specific areas of the brain to avoid this problem; players could “log in”, lie down on the couch and walk virtually millions of miles in-game without ever moving an actual muscle.
CIO was a fantasy MMORPG fan’s dream. Marketed as rated “E” for everyone made the game that much more attractive to audiences of all ages. The game took place in a magical realm called Helia. It was unknown just how big the virtual world of CIO was which made gamers everywhere excited to explore the “uncharted”.
The game was heavily anticipated by gamers all over the world since it was first announced. Mere seconds after Pre-Orders went live, both the EX – Reality Breaker and CIO were sold out to several thousand lucky players.
Neither game nor system would be having second shipments. The EX – Reality Breaker and CIO would be sold out indefinitely which baffled even the most experienced industry leaders. The company behind everything, Dark Portal, refused to comment.
Equally perplexing was the privately owned company’s background. Dark Portal was never a video game developer or even publisher. The company dealt in astrophysics and at one point there was an unnerving rumor floating around that Portal’s founder was a cult leader. The accusations were made by a young female journalist of a highly reputable news source.
The rumor was later dismissed; the journalist lost her job and was never heard from again. Many assumed the damage done to her reputation drove her away from the public scene.
Second before Dark Portal’s servers went live, thousands across the world prepared for <<Log In>>.
And then it began.

Here is the SU sheet:
Real Life Name:
Weapon: (No Guns)
Avatar Appearance: (2 paragraphs min)
Personality: (2 paragraphs min)
Here are SUs for two of my characters, I will be playing three but I have time to post only two right now.
Real Life Name: Mason Hunter Crux
CIO Name: Aries
Weapon: Dual Great Lances
Weapon Name: Darkness Soul Eater
Class: Dark Knight
Avatar Appearance: (The game replicates actual physical appearance via a set of polygons that essentially recreates your image virtually; man, that sounded like a bunch of gibberish, no?)
Mason’s light brown faux-hawk extends quite a bit on both ends. The back tip of the hawk’ peaks down to the lower part of the neck and the front spikes down to around eye-level. Around the sides of his head, Mason’s hair fades down to a thin layer that extends further into his thin side burns, which fall down to his jaw.
His hazel colored eyes appear green in direct sunlight but it is no more than a mere light effect. Mason is very well toned but by no means heavy-muscular. From the wrist up to lower the bicep, on both arms, completely covered, are impressive oriental dragon tattoos. On his chest, just above his heart, is a skull tattoo the size of his palm. His collective appearance is topped with a spike stud pierced just below his lip.
Contrasting with his light tan skin is mostly black attire. Mason wears a black leather trench coat with a hood that covers most of his face down to the base of his nose, although he will at times keep it raised just above eye-level. Strapped on his right shoulder is a large skull shaped steel-plate. Mason generally wears his trench coat completely unzipped; exposing the dark grey muscle tee-shirt he wears underneath. He wears black loose-fit pants tucked into his steel boots which cover his legs up to the base of the knee. Both hands are protected by brown leather gloves reaching up to the middle of his forearms, overlapping the sleeve of the trench coat on his right arm only.
Personality: Mason is a “just do it” kind of guy. No regrets, every day. He doesn’t say much because he finds it often times a waste of time, speaking. A lifetime fan of MMOs, Mason spent quite a bit of time playing online. He had one in few friends despite adventuring with other players at times. Of course it was often times required in raids and certain boss fights. He kept his friend log at zero and plans to keep it that way in CIO.
What he lacks in empathy he more than makes up for in pity. He rarely acts out on impulse and when he charges head on it’s usually out of desperation for lack of the correct “strategy”, one of his great weaknesses.
Mason comes off as the type of having an attitude all the time but he really means well or at least people like to think so. He enjoys competition and is always on PvP servers; he’s the kind of guy who enjoys the nature of competition. By no means a know-it-all, he understands the core mechanics of MMOs and understands the basics enough to have advantages over “noobs”.
Extremely reserved, Mason doesn’t trust others so easily. It isn’t that he doesn’t want friends it’s more that he hates having people depend on him in any way. He fears commitment and everything related which is why he’s slightly below average in school, he rarely turns in homework and doing just enough to get by.
Real Life Name: Alexis Roma
CIO Name: Red Athena
Weapon: Chain Whips
Weapon Name: Andromeda’s Chain
Class: Holy Knight
Avatar Appearance: Almost as smooth as her porcelain skin is Red’s silky white hair which hangs straight down to her waist. Her hair unfolds into even straight-cut bangs which lay just above her clear blue eyes. Although not a big fan of lipstick, Red applies just enough gloss to her pink lips to give a feminine spark matched.
Just like her user name suggests, most of Alexis’ in-game attire is red and mostly heavy armor. She wears a black leather corset vest with laces tied across her slightly exposed cleavage. Matching accordingly are tight black leather pants and a brown thick leather belt loosely hanging around the waist.
Wrapped around her legs are red-steel boots extending up to her mid-thighs. She wears red-steel gloves on both hands which cover each and every finger with claws, for aesthetic purposes only, and extend up to the middle of her arm.
Her shoulders are protected with heavy plates made of the same material and color as her gloves and boots.
Personality: Alexis just recently started playing MMOs and was introduced to CIO by a good friend of hers. The girl is eager for adventure and can be (and usually is) a big goof. She enjoys laughing and is very social.
Alexis is too trusting at times which has led to countless misunderstandings and problems. Although not a huge fan of fighting Alexis will comically engage in battle half knowing what she’s doing. Deep inside her is a girl who wants to prove to the world that she can be smart and will confront CIO with such mentality.
Alexis highly prefers partying with other players, it’s her idea that she keeps out of trouble that way. She’s totally oblivious to the fact that she is the definition of trouble. She won’t ever turn down a friend’s request for a favor even if the request ends up being too much for her to handle.
It’s her big heart that generally balances her shortcoming and her deep determination to better herself in all possible ways.

-All Serebii rules apply (no bunnying or cursing)
-Be mindful of the context of where events are taking place as far as how you interact in the world, what I’m asking is please keep it realistic as possible even in light (pun intended) of the situation (ex. Chances are NPCs will not bow down every time you walk past them)
-If you have an issue with a RPer please let me know so the issue may be resolved as peacefully as possible
-PvP battles will be decided by a "council" (I'll explain that more once it becomes necessary)
-Extreme inactivity will result in removal. Real life does take priority over this so if you’re going to be away for a while, notify me in advance. I’ll normally let you know in advance if your reaching a limit.
