Hello! This will be my first Roleplay back on this website in several (long) years so I figured I'd set up an interest check first before I put in the amount of work that I want to for this game. A little bit about me, I'm a stay-at-home worker in online retail and am constantly online at all times so be sure I am here to provide limitless support to my players! I do a lot of gaming, especially with RPGs and some tabletops like MtG and DnD. My recent ventures into DnD have gotten me itching to do an old school pen and paper on the website that got me started into Roleplay!
For this roleplay I'll be looking for a small but dedicated group of players to keep the story pushing along. I don't want to implement anything such as a posting order or post deadlines, but will if I need to in order to keep the roleplay chugging along smoothly. I want to leave the RP open to both skilled casuals and advanced players, I'll move the OOC for this story into the appropriate section depending on the interest I get.
This roleplay will center around the plot elements present in the Digimon Story games originally released on Ps4 that have recently been re-released onto Switch and PC. For those of you not familiar with these games, I would suggest playing or researching them when joining, but that is not a requirement! I'll go ahead and give a quick summary of the world we'll be playing in. Note, this Roleplay is going to be an AU set in a different country from the Digimon Story games.
In this universe we have two worlds, the real and the digital. They have begun intersecting recently due to the man-made virtual world known as Elysium. Humans have learned how to transform human thought into digital form, allowing full virtual reality simulation inside the world of ELysium. Unlike other virtual realities made popular by media, Elysium is not a game and is a platform very similar to the internet. Complete with forums that avatars can gather at, government URLs, and platforms for businesses to conduct online trade. As of a year ago, mysterious programs known as Digital Monsters, shortened to Digimon or even DM by the even lazier, have begun appearing in the deeper parts of Elysium kept and maintained by hackers, the black market, and some fairly seedy folk.
Nobody knows exactly who created them, or where they came from. However, hackers eventually found ways to capture and manifest Digimon whose forms were adapt at breaking through Firewalls, hosting advanced programs, and carrying out menial tasks for their masters. Hacker groups, organized crime, and even the Government have begun to research into Digimon and how to best use them for their own purposed. The general public, on the otherhand, remains fearful of their presence and have demanded the government keep the threat contained. Those who use or have contact with Digimon for any reason are generally marked as pariahs or those you don't generally mess with. Our characters will find themselves caught up in this underworld of Digital Monsters in Elysium and their decisions will either save Elysium from growing corruption, or doom it to destruction.
If you're interested please let me know ASAP and fill out the following form to help me finalize some details of the roleplay. I would like to note, I will only be accepting 4-5 people, if I have a larger group of interest then I will be accepting/denying based on the quality (not quantity!) of your CS.
