Hey there! I would really like to remake a huge group roleplay that I was a part of a while ago on another forum. Sadly that forum is pretty much dead at this point, so the roleplay stopped :(
(if you're interested in reading the original roleplay, it's here: http://www.mystery-shack.com/showthread.php?tid=5030 It's one of the longest running roleplays on the site, but it's hella awesome.)
It involved traveling through dimensions, collecting magical relics, and trying very hard not to die.
The main basis of the plot, is that a group of people gather together in search of artifacts; Objects and relics that contain the souls (or fragments of souls) of mystical god-like beings that grant the holder a variety of magical power. The artifacts are scattered throughout the multiverse, and often guarded by powerful enemies.
If that sounds fun to you please think up a character, or pick one from a fandom (au's of characters too!), and talk to us here! we'll try and fit you in ASAP.
People can join at any time (just check into the OOC thread first, don't just jump in plz) Because we're traveling trough all kinds of different AUs, We can always pick up a new character or two from different worlds. The roleplay is meant to include all kinds of different fandoms, AUs, and original characters and universes. (feel free to share your characters and ideas!)
As for the types of character, it's literally a multiverse of every single kind of world and possibility. Go nuts. Make a monster, make a human, make a talking cat that eats dreams and only speaks in riddles... you can be a good guy or a bad guy, it really doesn't matter as long as you have fun!
I'm not the best at explaining so please ask questions if you're confused!
You can use your own Bio/Sheet, or fill out this one. feel free to add more or less info as needed. The only thing i really require is details on your character's powers/weaknesses. Thanks!
Alignment: (good, neutral or evil)
roleplay hasn't started yet, but i'll try and keep it written down here for new roleplayers.
[[[This timeline was for the old roleplay, so it doesn't accurately represent the timeline of the roleplay. it's still helpful for explaining things though.]]]
(the old roleplay was based on gravity falls, so there are a lot of references to Bill cipher and such)

[WIP a little all over the place for now]
Artifacts are the last remnants of powerful god-like beings who were all wiped out long ago. Their souls are attached to random objects throughout the multiverse, and provide powers and magic to whoever weilds them. There are also much weaker artifacts called fragments that are only a small piece of a soul. these don't have minds, and have much less power. The more powerful the artifact, the more whole the soul is.
They can sometimes go undetected for millennia, lying dormant in some cave, or on a dusty shelf somewhere, but when they are found, they usually bring extreme chaos into whatever realm they appear in.
-Omniverse: Every universe ever, including ours. Truly infinite.
-Ultraverse: A grouping of megaverses, connected by one or more transistionary universes. Analogus to a galactic supercluster. The Far Realm is the Ultra verse that encompasses the Axolotl-verse, and several others.
-Megaverse: A grouping of hundreds, if not thousands of universes, all connected by one or more transistionary universes. The Axolotl-verse is a megaverse, and includes Gravity Falls, the Potterverse, and the Nyghtmar Dominion, among others.
-Multiverse: A tight grouping of a couple dozen universes, as few as three, and as many as 300. During his travels, Ford rarely ventured far outside of the Gravity Falls/Rick and Morty multiverse.
-Universe/Realm/Plane/Dimension/World: Exactly what you'd expect. Tend to be nearly infinite in size, but most of that is empty space. Examples include Universe 46'\ (the Gravity Falls universe) and the Crossroads.
-Transistionary Universe: A realm between realms. Dimensional travelers pass through these on their way to other planes. Tend to be sparesly populated, if at all. Examples include the Extraversal Void and the Nightmare Realm.
-Pocket Dimension/Demiplane: An artificially created universe. Relatively small, ranging from a few square feet to a few square parsecs.often used for storage.
there are many ways to travel between dimensions, (some magical, some scientific,) and some dimensions are easier to travel to than others. some dimensions and multiverses have easily accessible interdimentional transportation, and other's haven't even discovered it yet.
there are huge interdimentional market worlds filled with travelers and products from any dimension imaginable, often hosted in Transistionary Universes. they often completely cover one, if not more, planets.
Gonna put all character's Bios in here at some point
(If anyone from MysteryShack is on here: Hey guys! Send me a message or something, we should catch up! Also join the RP!)
