WaywardK The Most Paradoxical of Beings

Member Seen 8 mos ago

Setting

The Angel’s Eye Archipelago exists in the heart of the Net Ocean, the tumultuous aquatic domain of the digital world. Here the whole power of the world rests on it luscious green shoulders. The gateway that makes all other gateway’s possible, where the very soul of this digital universe lives. So why is it then that so few have ever heard of it...? Is it because the archipelago survives off its secrecy? Or is it because the knowledge of the divine should only be entrusted to few mortals? Maybe the very nature of being an unknown entity is sought after by the most powerful of manipulative forces. Whose to say, maybe you’ll get to meet the mastermind who works behind the scenes.

Until then, we should turn our gaze to the mysterious fog that has begun to roll in. Virtually undistinguishable from the natural, and a little too on the nose for a common trope, people who sail into this fog or encounter it on the archipelago’s islands return speaking of a great, dark ocean and creatures of nightmare gnawing at the edges of their vision. Some among these parties do not show their faces ever again in the waking world, others are so twisted and marred they bare no resemblance to their original forms. It is this very aberrant phenomena that lead to you being drawn into the archipelago in the first place.

Humans by their very nature are resistant to otherworldly powers and the laws of the digital universe, how else would we live so long without ever encountering the magic around us. Digimon make their homes behind the very screens we see day to day and yet we do not see the world that lives at our fingertips and thrives off of our dreams. So it would make sense that to fight against unknown powers you would need soldiers so existentially apathetic to their antagonistic forces that the very essence of it wouldn’t affect them, right? Well, only in theory. It’s never been tried before, new recruit, we’ll see if you can get the job done.

Your Story

You’ll be playing as a human brought to the Archipelago by KingWhamon, one of the three lords of the islands, and an island himself. The Lords have taken every precaution to keep the archipelago secret from the rest of the world to protect the source of the powers that be but have met their wits end. The otherworldly dark ocean will not show itself to them and they have been unable to investigate it themselves. Unnerved by secrets they themselves are not keeping, they sought humans as a tool to safely explore this unknown variable. Historically humans have always been brought to the digital world in great times of need, so the Lords of Angel’s Eye took a page from that book and have recruited a few chosen of their own.

Characters will manifest in the digital world with different tools at their disposal based on the states of their personalities and their subconscious. This is of course, a plot digivice to allow players to use whatever mechanics from the canon to design their characters. Enjoy the concept of armor Digimon? Want to punch bad guys in their faces? Want to become a Digimon yourself? All available to you if you can narratively justify it. That doesn’t mean the price you pay for your decisions is just time and creativity for a character sheet, your characters digital manifestations of power will greatly affect how the world and antagonistic forces will act against you.

Digimon and other Digital Entities

The nature of this digital world is an amalgam of inspirited computer files, an infinitely unknowable collective unconscious, and otherworldly forces taking advantage of a deeply manipulative medium to manifest and create life. It is different from the many other digital worlds in existence in that its sovereign entities and protective deities are not collectively responsible for the safety of the whole of the universe, but rather the many regions within, with the gods at the heart of the world unknown to all but the highest of orders. There is no king Yggdrasil, no Royal Knights, no Olympus XII, no recognized group of Holy Beasts governing each direction. Just a myriad of different deific energies controlling their respective regions, some vying for more power, and others content with their increasingly small domains.

The progression and regression of a Digimon's form in this world are greatly affected by the stimuli they feed off of and the nature of their root data. While most Digimon will follow a similar progression to what you've seen in the anime series, many may also follow the confusing interconnected tree(s) you'll find in some of the games. You may start an Agumon but by no means is it unheard of to end up a Lilymon when you follow the right psychological journey, it's just exponentially difficult the farther away from your base nature the desired form is and can takes months to years. Even more importantly, it seems the presence of human stimuli has a great effect on Digimon themselves, with human emotional data invariably having the greatest effect on their progression.

The world itself is wildly influenced by digital trends in the human world and the consciousness of humans that find themselves visiting for some grand task such as yours. Not only the world, but a human's very perception of themselves can alter their digitized forms from one moment to the next. This can range from the tame side of determining your outfit, to a more complex representation of your very own dysmorphic tendencies. The nature of exactly how much the human mind effects the world is unknown, volatile, and adherent to no observable rules. What that has to say about the rules guiding what exists beyond the ever-vexing fog is disturbing to say the least.

Other entities do exist in the digital world. Beings composed of digital matter but harbor no physical form to call their own are extremely common and have no more effect on the world than the breeze. There are natural elements of the world as well such digital copies of small animals such as squirrels and fish or plant lifeto fill up the landscape. Increasingly rare are other manifestations that take on human forms, possess willing hosts, and form the landscape itself.

Lords of Angel's Eye Archipelago

Of three lords the characters will only know of KingWhamon at the beginning. There are three lords, one for the Skies, the Seas, and the Land. Each lord governs their respective domain but performs a job essential to the Archipelago. Of the three lords only KingWhamon's identity is known across the Archipelago. For their safety and the safety of the isles the other two Lords are kept secret. Thankfully due to legend we know of their titles and their duties.

  • KingWhamon "Son of the Sea" - KingWhamon governs the inhabitants of the Archipelago and acts as their literal King. Due to his size he communicates with a spectral Penguinmon on his surface. As Lord of the Sea he is responsible for keeping the waters of Angel's Eye Archipelago safe.
  • "Mother Goddess" - An angel from ancient times that arrived at the Archipelago on the back of KingWhamon when he was still a young Whamon. The Mother Goddess governs the skies of the Archipelago. She maintains a great illusion encircling the Archipelago that hides it from the rest of the world.
  • "Spirit of the Isles" - A great spirit born on Terra-Island, the second largest island of the Archipelago. He is a literal manifestation of the lands that make up the isle, and thus governs them. The Spirit of the Isles guards the secrets of Angel's Eye.


Power Levels and Combat

This is of course a Digimon RP so combat to some point is going to be a given. While not necessarily the main focus of the RP, certain big turning points in the plot will be happening through combative means. As with in the games, the rock-paper-scissors format of weaknesses will apply. Data types are stronger against Vaccine, Vaccine against Virus, and Virus against Data. While this doesn't mean you hard lose or hard win, it does give you a general idea of how much your character will struggle in combat against certain types.



Character Sheets:

I use character sheets as a quick reference during roleplays and try to keep them on the shorter side so its easier for my ADHD brain to find the material I need to reference. That means I don't need big long explanations and short stories per section describing to the minutia. So except for the writing sample try saying as much as you can as quick as possible.





**Your character will be completely ignorant of the Digital World until told information once they have entered the Digital World. Once that happens, assume any information listed in the OOC and Characters tabs (except for other player sheets) are known to you.
**Twin Digimon are allowed. These Digimon MUST already be canonically linked. I.E. Lopmon/Terriermon, Agumon/Gobumon, Gatomon/BlackGatomon. Twin digimon ALWAYS have penalties when not working together.
**Try to keep diversity high. Characters, Concepts, and the use of Twins may be rejected if they are too close to each other. First come first served.
**Please wait till you have been accepted to post in Characters Tab.

One Last Note!

I don't feel the need to make a rules section because we should all know how to follow site rules and be good people. I do however want to note one thing. Trying too hard to succeed all the time will cause you to encounter narrative resistance. People and Digimon are flawed, consider failing on purpose if the situation calls for it. What about succeeding at something you never wanted in the first place? Being creative and writing realistic characters produce narrative rewards, catharsis, and sometimes even combat perks for your characters.

Oh right, I'm working on a system for combat ability creation that we'll implement into the character sheets closer to the first instance of combat. It'll likely revolve around the use of 3 abilities per combat form. Since its not relevant to the plot I decided to go ahead and create the IC so I can get you guys happy and roleplaying faster.

Reading over things now, then I'll begin fleshing out a character. Not sure particularly what I'm going to do yet Digimon-wise, it's hard to choose between the Frontier style (Because punching other Digimon is fun), or having a companion to play off of for humor and development. I'll see where my brain leads me

@WaywardK

I always forget that there was a protagonist just punching high-level digimon in that show.

... Might need to do a little research now, actually.

Heheh. Yup, he sure is quite the nerd~ I am definitely looking forward to this entire group. They are shaping up to be quite the interesting batch~

I'm also really looking forward to how the Digimon interact with each other. That should be plenty of fun all on its own.
