PG14 for violence, language and sexual suggestions
Hi and welcome to CIO! I have but one request during your stay here in the world of CIO: Please RP with the respect towards others in mind! If we all chip in, this will undoubtedly be a fun experience for all!
I have the pleasure of introducing the awesome *Jean Grey* as coGM. This RP is a big undertaking and I will need her help. She has as much power as I do so respect that.

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.

The Starting Hold consists of the City of Pear Des, which is surrounded by Heartfelt Meadows. Venturing deeper to the south beyond Heartfelt Meadows is Deep Blue Lake.
