Sword Art Online Interest Check
Just finished watching the anime, and I have to admit I am enamored by the entire concept. I had a story that I was originally going to use for fanfiction material, but then I thought, "Why not make it an RP?". Sooo here I am, seeing if it'll garner any interest.
For those that don't know, Sword Art Online is a series of Light Novels based around the experiences of a boy being trapped in the titular game. This game is anything but, however, because if you die here, you die in real life. You see, at that point in time gaming technology was advanced to the point that you could fully immerse yourself into a game with the help of a NerveGear, which is pretty much a headset. This way you control the character with your own body movements, kinda like you ARE your character. When your character 'dies' in-game, the headset sends a microwave signal that pretty much fries your brain. Should someone from the real world try to pull it off, the same thing happened sadly.
The only way to get out was to reach the 100th level and beat the game.
This RP in particular would take place in a modified version of the SAO MMORPG, with classes and skills and weapons, although I'd reveal that much in the OOC should this garner enough interest. I suppose it would be considered AU or maybe some time after or something, I'm not entirely sure.
But yeah, anyone interested?
