When somebody's death comes before their proper time, through unfortunate accident or perhaps murder. They are given a second chance in life. Supernatural beings known as the "Reapers" take up their soul and throw it into a vast competition known as the Reapers Game. The Reapers Game is a survival competition, Players are given some basic tools, and are then expected to accomplish a set of objectives. While participating the Reapers Game, the Players' souls are separate from their bodies, inhabiting a special alternate dimension called the Underground, or UG. Players in the Underground can see everything happening in the world of the living, or the Realground. (RG) However, Players cannot interact with, or be seen by, people in the RG. Except under special circumstances dictated by the Reapers. The UG is also home to the Noise, demon-like entities formed out of negative emotions from the RG. Noise naturally prey on Players, and form the backbone of many Reapers Game challenges.
Are you going to survive?
Welcome, Honored Players of this Roleplay. If, by some off chance, you have played the Nintendo DS game, The World Ends With You, you should already know everything. I'm running under the assumption you have not, and thus I will be explaining everything about the RP, Setting, Rules, and etc.
In this RP, we take the role of Players in the Reapers Game, naturally. I will also allow some to play as Reapers. We need to form a team, survive the Seven Day Reapers Game, the mysteries of it, and regain our lives. For now, I'd like to keep things somewhat vague, but I'll explain the very basics here in the iCheck.
The Reapers Game of course! Specifically, this game is in Manhattan. Therefore all of the players will be from Manhattan in one way or another. The Players will be required to stay together mostly.
Reapers are not very different from the Players actually, Reapers oversee the game, and appear human, but with skeletal black wings on their back representing their power. Reapers can see and interact with both the RG and UG at their discretion, and most live normal lives in the RG while moderating the Reapers Game. Some Reapers exist to hand out missions, others to serve as obstacles, and there is a group of Reapers at the top who run the entire affair. The GM, or Game Master, is the Reaper who decides on the Missions and most of the specifics of the game. It is also tradition for the Game Master to fight the players as the final mission to win the Game. The Game Master does not have absolute authority, but most don't know who, or what, he answers to. The role of Game Master changes from week to week as well.
Players are the souls of those who died prematurely in unfortunate accidents, as stated above they mostly don't interact with the RG, even though they can see it. Players are typically in the range of 14-19 years old. Upon entering the Reapers Game. Players are stripped of all their possessions except their clothes, and issued a basic set of items. A phone, used to issue Missions via text message, and six Pins. Which will be explained in their own section.
Pins are your weapons, your tools, your defense against the Noise. Pins are exactly what you think, small round objects you would pin onto your clothes for example. That isn't what they are for though. To Players of the Reaper's Game, Pins are used to manifest "Psychs" or magical powers, if you will. Psychs take on all shapes and sizes, from healing, to pyrokinesis, shooting energy projectiles, or generating blades of energy. Each Pin has it's own Psych tied to it, and a limited amount of energy for that Psych, when the energy is used up, the Pin will fade until it regenerates the energy. (usually a process that takes less than a minute.) Each player is given a different set of six upon entering the game, and more pins may be acquired by ripping them from the Noise. Not everyone can use every pin, though what works for who is entirely random. The six a player is issued will always work for that player however.
The Noise are strange monsters that inhabit the UG, appearing as floating graffiti like symbols until they spot a player to feast on, then they transform into a shape resembling a cross between an ordinary animal and graffiti art. Noise can only be defeated by Pin Psychs, and upon destruction, their energy may collapse into a new Pin, though this is somewhat rare.
That's the basic stuff, questions? ask away!
I am looking for around six players. And I want all six to stick around for this RP! We will be getting things off with a bang, no slow starts here, so I hope I can keep everyone's interest to see this through at least one week of Game Time. There are numerous twists and turns abound!
