It is the year 2222. Technology has advanced to the point where convenience is absolute. Corporations have forever been striving for an electronic device that is full of functional features and is still small and sleek. They succeeded with the breakthrough of 3D tablets, along with the creation of 'Accessorize' -- miniature computers with limited functionalities, as compared to their tablet counterparts, and styled to pass for an accessory. Computers of old, such as laptops and desktops, have long become obsolete. Yet there was still one area that had not been broken through.
Until K-EM Enterprises that is.
The biggest conglomerate dealing in the creation of electronics, K-EM Enterprises was the first to create both 3D tablets and Accessorize. Now, they unveil their latest development -- a virtual reality console.
After years of testing in the labs, K-EM had finally perfected virtual reality. And now they're ready to sell it to the masses.
As the public anticipates the date of its opening sale, K-EM Enterprises announces that ten lucky winners will be able to visit their headquarters and experience the virtual world. These winners will walk away as the first owners of the world's latest technology.
No one could have predicted the chaos about the follow...

Welcome to K-EM Enterprises, an adventure game taking place within the realm of virtual reality! This is a game where players will be transported to a world of wonders, a place where virtually anything
is possible. [.What.To.Expect.]
Our ten lucky winners will be gathering at the headquarters of K-EM Enterprises for a three-day weekend tour of the system, at the end of the tour they will leave as the first ten people in the world to have experienced K-EM's virtual world and be the proud owners of their own free consoles.
Time moves faster in the virtual world than it does in reality, approximately three times faster. This gives the guests an estimate of one weeks time within the virtual world to fully enjoy themselves -- only one week instead of nine days since some time is deducted for the preparation of entering and leaving the virtual world.
While players are able to fully feel and experience everything that occurs in the virtual world, this does not change the fact that bodily functions must still be met. However, for the sake of a full tour, without the interruption of needing food for replenishment and other such matters, the ten winners will be placed in a short cryogenic sleep.
While K-EM's tech team overlooks the steps of cryogenic sleep, the virtual world is overlooked by a Central AI. The Central AI has been pre-programmed to run the world and maintain the system. It makes and controls various other AIs (NPCs) throughout the virtual world. They are so well-made that it is hard to differentiate them from another player.
All seems to be well and going according to schedule, but what happens when a hacker working for a rival company manages to infiltrate K-EM Enterprises under the guise of one of the winners...?
A suddenly malfunctioning system is the answer, and our ten winners no longer seem so lucky.
Will they be able to survive the twisted games of the AI and leave the headquarters of K-EM Enterprises unscathed?
Basically, this will be a game of adventure where players are pitted against various obstacles set up by the GMs.
Players can expect for there to be several different and completely random 'worlds' to traverse through. As they travel, players will bump into the different AIs that make up the Central AI. Some of these AIs may help the players (for a price), while others want nothing more than to hinder or outright harm them.
Players will not necessarily all be together in a group at all times. There may be times when some are alone, and the group is scattered. While actual death is not possible within the virtual world, players are transported to a penalty area when they 'die'. Once they have received their penalty, they are free to roam the world once again. However, since players are able to feel and experience everything, death surely will not be pleasant.[.Available.Roles.]AIs
: There will be seven main AIs that will be played by the GMs [myself and Kunoichi] as well as any other NPC characters. AIs have their own unique agendas, as well as personalities. Whether or not an AI will prove to be an ally or an enemy to the Users, only time will tell.Users
: These are the ten not-so-lucky winners that are now trapped within the Virtual World. How will they fare against the AIs?Hacker
: Out of the ten Users, one is a hacker from a rival company. This will be a secret role and Users will eventually find out who the hacker among them is. If you are interested in this role, please send a PM to the GM expressing your interest and we will discuss the role. Essentially, the Hacker will be like the AIs' spy. Having failed in hacking the system, his/her mind is broken by the central AI. However...will the hacker manage to free him/herself from the AI's control? Will s/he continue helping the AIs or will s/he side with the Users?[.Character.Profile.Sheet.]

Once characters are approved, a cast list will be posted here. We are looking for players who are:
- Willing and able to post at least once a week.
- Posts should be at least 4 sentences minimum, however, longer posts are always welcome.
- There is to be no text-speak, grammar and writing should be understandable though not necessarily perfect. If I'm struggling to read and understand your post because of spelling and grammar errors, this is bad.
- Creative writers! This is a virtual world where the boundaries of creativity are only limited to your imagination. Think up creative ways to escape, to bribe, to end the game in one piece. However, this is a game of survival and thus players will undoubtedly need to work together.
