    Roleplay Premise:

    The most powerful characters across all realities are brought together for a competition: of every disconnected universe shared collectively by Story Embers, who is the most powerful hero?

    Winner gets the greatest reward of all; a chance to go home and let their universe live in peace. And the losers? Why ask? Are you planning to lose?

    This is my first time doing a roleplay, so apologies in advance if I have to figure out some rules as-things-happen. There is a plot to this roleplay, as well as a mystery that will need to be solved. 

    Who to roleplay with?

    Characters – Competitors: bring your single most powerful character to compete (please exclude god-figures so we don’t have all-powerful opponents). I’ll only accept 8 challengers (1 per person).

    Characters – Audience: If you have a character that doesn’t fit the above criteria, want to bring your character’s band of friends, or if you’re late in joining, you can make an audience member to the games. These people also will play a role, rest assured. 

    Character sheet: 
    Name:
    Age:
    Race:
    Power/weapon/reputation/other things that make them strong:
    Additional details that might be important:

    I’ll get the story moving tomorrow or Monday, but once your characters are made, they’re free to interact and puzzle over what’s happening in the main room. 

    Story start/setting

    A giant swirling portal opens, and your character(s) are spat into a huge circular room with no doors or windows, and several other competitors…

    Always remember you're unique...
    ...Just like everyone else

    Character sheet:
    Name: Jericho Kuvadhuh
    Age: …somewhere between a septingentarian or a literal millennial…
    Race: Human, specifically a member of the Falmari tribe of the Eya.
    Power/weapon/reputation/other things that make them strong: She is a Sadi, meaning she is (relatively) immortal as her lifeforce is tied to Shakti (think the Force from Star Wars).  She carries a jhani crystal to focus her abilities, which involve heightened senses, awareness of the presences of others, telekinesis, astral projection, a form of telepathy, and several other things.  (She’s basically a Jedi but there’s a few differences).
    Additional details that might be important: Jericho also happens to be a bit of a coward, in that she’ll avoid conflict unless absolutely necessary and prefers to hide away in the desert.

    This looks like a ton of fun and since you don’t have too many people involved I’d love to join, but I don’t have any characters that have powers. (Besides the witch. I don’t mind using her, but she doesn’t even have a name yet XD) So, would I pick a character to be part of the audience, or does my character not have to have literal powers? Like I have a king, so he has power over his country. Or could I just invent a character? Sorry about all the questions!

    Be weird. Be random. Be who you are. Because you ever know who would love the person you hide.

    Yep, that’s totally fine. Power comes in many forms, and I image some of the games will mess with various ways one can be powerful.

    Or if you’re really itching to make a character, go for it!

    Ok cool! Thank you!

    Creating new characters is always fun, so I think I’ll do that. Who knows, he/she might give me an idea for a new plot!

    After I create him/her (probably her) I’ll fill out the form and get back to you!

    Are you planning on starting today?

    @kb-writer I have several characters that might work, but I’m wondering how much I’m expected to participate? I don’t spend a ton of time on SE.😁

    Thanks.

    Not all those who wander are lost.

    Sounds fun!

    Not too much. I don’t mind if the story moves really slowly. I work full-time in a non-writing career, so I may have pockets of busyness where I can’t pop on much too. A lot of the roleplay will be explorative, so if characters pop on in and out, it shouldn’t hurt.
