    Default Nexus OoC 12: Out of Cornflakes.

    Due to general agreement between people on both sides of the line, TOWN and ACRO have been merged. Thus, all threads which previously would have fallen in once category or another, should now be tagged [NEXUS].


    LONG LIVE THE NEXUS!




    So, what is Nexus?
    Spoiler
    Show
    Well, the Nexus itself is like a rift, a single, brilliant point where all the universes in this strange thing we call 'reality' meet. Traveling to, from, and between any world or cosmology is theoretically possible here, and the Nexus itself seems to encourage this happening, often sucking beings and locations out of other universes at random, and dumping them on the world that lies at its center. It was not always like this, however. Once there were two worlds at the Nexus' heart, separate and distinct, though somewhat similar in ways. Similar enough that they slowly and eventually merged, so that only one remained. Here in this world the Nexus' influence reigns supreme, and as such the world has defied almost all attempts at classification. Here, knights of old may engage with Jedi knights. Gleaming spaceships land in Dark Age hamlets. Cowboys and samurai quest together to find holy sandwich boxes. And in the heavens above, Xi Wangmu and the Flying Spaghetti Monster meet every Woden's Day to play bowls with Pelor (it gets pretty epic). Here the possibilities are endless, and the universe without rules (except the Forum Rules, and the general FFRP rules, and the Individual Thread Rules, and oh whatever). Welcome to Nexus. Fun is had here.


    Major Locales
    Spoiler
    Show

    For an endless world that defies all logic and classification, Nexus can be pretty darn consistent at times. As such, several locations have survived the test of time, remaining (somewhat) constant amidst the chaos of the rest of the world.

    Inside - Inside mostly resembles a modern city, with high-rise buildings and apartments, alleyways and roads, though the odd Demonic Monument can still be seen rising up above the surrounding suburb, teeming with dark cultists. Inside is the current seat of the Acronymian Empire, which controls much of the surrounding area.

    Outside - If you ain't Inside, you're OUTSIDE! Simple as that. Outside is a meta-thread for all those wildernessy type areas that don't merit their own threads, be it wood or lake or tiny shack.

    ACRONYMS - Home to adventurers, these complexes provide headquarters and occasionally living space for like-minded Player Characters. Invariably equipped with cheesy names, these structures provide a place for their various members to fight crime, cause chaos, or anything of the sort. Current Acronyms include:
    • AMEN - Association for the Malicious, Evil and Nefarious. Evil aligned organization, exists to be EVIL! And sometimes Ebil.
    • HALO - Heroic, Anti-evil and Lawbreaking Organization. Non-Evil aligned organization, exists to smite wrong-doers.
    • GLoG - Good League of Good. Good aligned organization, exists to redeem evil-doers.
    • LANTERN - Lawful Awesome Not-Neutral Truthful Anti-Evil Respectable Nothing Else. Good-Aligned group dedicated to fighting evil and crime of anysort. They also use power rings, and is a supeteam led by Maxios.
    • NO - Neutralist Oganization. Neutral aligned organization, exists to perform mercenary contracts for other organizations and individuals in the Nexus without taking sides
    • WATCHTOWER - You Know What? Screw It. Non-aligned aligned organization. Exists to destroy threats to Nexus, whatever form they may take.
    • SAINT - Society of Assassins, Infiltrators, Ninja, and Terrorists. Assasin's guild, located in Riverside.
    • PACK - Perfectly Acceptable College for Kids. The local Nexus school. Class has pretty much never been in session, though...


    The Taverns
    What kind of vaguely DnD-esque adventurer would you be if you didn't visit one of these places at least once? The various Taverns, Grills, Hotels, Cantinas and Restaurant provide meeting places for the Player Characters, areas for quest givers to stand mysteriously in, and also places for people to eat and spend the money they seem to have infinite amounts of. Though there are a vast number of such places in Nexus, some with their own thread and some without, throughout history three major hubs have existed, without which Nexus as we know it wouldn't exist. The Dancing Fox Inn, which is located in What used to be Town but is now another part of the Inside. Taverna Generica, which is located near Inside's more NPC inhabited areas. Finally, there is Trog's Tavern, which is located, maddeningly enough, at every corner of the Nexus at the same time. There is also the Black Dragon's Den, it's located roughly between the docks and the slums of Inside, and is the local hive of scum and villainy.

    The Serpent's Gaze Is now open for business. And yes, it's connected to the cultist group I have going. The semi-plot is open for all to explore, so go ahead and come on in.

    Watch Brotherhood too. It's actually based on the manga more directly.

    What's amazing is how they do mood swings so well.

    Is that a hotel or an apartment?

    The post left me wondering. Since you talked about staying the night but you reference it looking like an apartment building.

    It's actually both. The first couple floors above ground, are for hotel stays, while the top(with the best rooms) are for people who wish to live there.

    Hmmm... interesting plot, but I'm not sure I'd want any of my characters to be corrupted or sacrificed or whatever.

    On the other hand... how long are they willing to hold someone if corrupting them turned out to be a long-term endeavor?

    I guess it'd depend on who, how much they fought back, and if they could keep Jezebel or Aluskal from simply deciding they're too much trouble and skinning them alive.

    Hmmm. What would convince them it was worth the trouble? A challenge? Or someone who'd provide a significant benefit when corrupted?

    So... sending a fallen Angel assassin there to find a place to live would be a bad idea then.

    Especially if she appears the pillar of innocence and purity and has no wings so she looks like an extraordinarily beautiful human?

    I have to admit the idea has me interested enough I almost want to start playing June just for it. Despite still not really feeling like playing..Anyone else.

    It'd have to be something very good. Jezebel isn't looking for more than the occasional challenge, she's done this long enough not to get stupid with things. I wouldn't know what to suggest to be honest as she's doing well at her current pace of things.

    I wouldn't want my characters dying in there either.

    I suppose I could have them corrupted, but no pulling the 'corruption is forever' on me. I LOVE a redemption plot.

    Oh, that's fine. You really can get out of it. Especially at the start, before it worms it's way down too deeply. And even after that, it's basically treating someone like an addict to a very very powerful drug.
