====
In the year 2126, a Dive Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game or DMMORPG called Yggdrasil was released. It stands out among all other DMMORPG's due to its unusually high ability for the player to interact with the game. After an intense 12-year run the game servers are about to be shut down. Within the game exists a guild, The De Ordine Imperii (or Empire of Order to those outside of the group), once consisting of numerous members and credited as one of the longest lasting guilds in the game. Now only a of the members remain, the others have left the game, or unable to return for the game's ending for one reason or another. Of those members only a handful remain in time to say goodbye to the game that they have devoted so much time to. In order to celebrate their long lasting friendship, and their openness to other players they have hosted an open guild party for the remaining players who wish to participate in the final hours of the guild. Their guild hall known as Grand Arce Bellum. A grand white marble palace that few have conquered. Boasting renown warriors and talented clerics the guild was not renown as a 10 ten guild but a long lasting one as it had started almost shortly after the guild system was first introduced officially.

When the shut-down time arrives however, it would appear that the people have not logged out...Instead it appears as if Yggdrasil has been recreated as its own reality along with its various NPCs having been brought to life while the group at the party have been trapped in the form of their game avatars, leaving him unable to use the normal player functions, such as General Message, or even to log out. With no other option, the new Empire of Order prepares to find out what has happened...and if they can return to their new world. The world has become much more interesting than it use to be...

Rules:

1. All basic roleplay rules apply modding, meta gaming, and even god modding in this setting are restricted.

2. For whatever reason I reserve the right to not allow something into this roleplay. For better or worse I may reject something outright as right of gm.

3. I will be limiting the people who can be max level off the bat. Why? Because while Overlord is all about a power scale discrepancy between Momonga, and others that sort of thing is ill fit for a roleplay. If everyone is overpowered then how do I, as GM, stimulate an adventure where we can't just walk into a kingdom and destroy everything they have with our pinky fingers. You may be a high level but at a point I will be asking people to lower themselves down in order to make am more diverse cast.

4. World level items, and such are restricted on a case by case basis. You may ask to have one prior to the rp but I will apply rule 2 as I see fit.

5. Players who are missing for a week without notification will have their player characters killed. I will not tolerate a dead halt in the roleplay.

6. While I will be gm I will be expecting players to make up their own adventures as well. If you don't wish to go with the main group you may make a side story elsewhere. However if it is to have a long lasting connection to an overall plot please include myself in planning it.

7. While traditionally a humanoid guild Empire of Order will be allowing non humans into the guild hall before then. The NPCs won't respect non humans but they won't attack you on sight as per orders of the other 'high beings' in short you may be undead, or a lizardman if you so desire.

8. The character sheets will heavy in terms of building due to the style of the roleplay. Meaning BIG Cs's. I'll leave the old skeleton below to give you an idea. The only reason this isn't advanced is due to my own dislike of massive paragraph requirements per post, and that advanced doesn't ever bite with my rp ideas. You don't need to stack all your abilities at once you can come up with more as you go.

9. Another note relating to the seventh rule: Npc's are heavily biased. They aren't going to fawn over anyone who isn't a high ranking, or long reigning member of the aforementioned guild. In fact they may very well be heavily disrespectful to undead outsiders because they were all programmed to practically worship 'humanity'. They revere humans, and humanoid people like elves because that's what the heavy roleplaying guild founders wanted them to do. They will still refer to you as a higher being, and give a grudging acceptance to say a lizard man but they will probably do so sarcastically. Think of non humans/outsider guild members as jews were treated in the middle ages. Treated with Disdain because they are strange, foreign outsiders.

Promised CS Skeleton



A quick disclaimer: Why did the previous rp die? Lack of activity. Two players posted one of which was at a castle scenario I hadn't planned for, and the other was pondering if they were going to stay. The other two flat out quit posting when they only needed to answer the simple question of: "Will you let the overgrown lawful good tank stomp out the npc's".

"Why is your character slated to be Emperor/Basileus?" Because as GM I need to have control over what is happening. Do you have a better idea for a long running member of the order who can properly lead a group of sociopathic roman warriors while promptly keeping the other player characters in line? Well you're free to submit the idea so go ahead if you really want to be the pseudo figure head.

I'd wait off until more people express interest but I'm doubtful due to the nature of the Cs which is needed to keep within the lore of the series.@Zelosse

I have an NPC character in mind. A 'divine judgment' -type angel who believes in order above all else and thus manifests as an avatar of machinery. Basically, a lawful good, gravity magic-wielding Paladin mecha angel.

CS pending:

Shh... Divine Construct.

Technically, a machine golem or automaton or elemental from the elemental plane of order or whatever other fantasy equivalent of robot suits your fancy.

Since guild NPCs are created by guildmembers, would you consider having your character be mine's creator?

@Stern AlgorithmI'd prefer the character not be mechanized it would be very out of place in the setting of the roleplay, and most people will be player characters, not NPC's. You'll basically be bossed around by virtue of choosing to be an NPC.

Well, I don't know much about Overlord besides just a handful of things, sooooo I guess I could make a templar or something.

@Spriggs27 If you want to stick to a low level base character with a templar fighter as your primary job class after your base class of fighter that's fine. However the higher level you are the more job classes you'll probably have. Templar's seem to be heavy in mixed offensive physical magical attacks but the thing about Overlord is that everyone is specifically able to make their skills tailored specifically to them.

I'll work on mostly a knight Templar, focused on using magic to enhance their weapon. Or just give them pocket sand and throw it into people's faces to see if it works on them. JK

@ZelosseLike Sprigs said there is a precedent in Overlord for humanoid doll like creatures but they're all magical in origin, and not proper classes from what I've seen I can hand wave it for the sake of being nice if you're insistent but machinery to my knowledge is all Medieval meaning nigh non existent. There is not even steampunk flinklocks in the setting. The closest I've seen is distilleries.

@vancexentan except for CZ, a Pleiades automoton with a rifle shown in the series and listed in the wiki. There are also gunner and sniper classes, none of which seem to be forbidden as playable. If its an Overlord themed rp then that should mean the video game setting which allowed automotons and machinery should still exist to players BUT would makesuch things impossible after the game goes "live" right?
