Eternal Stimuli: A Matrix Rp
After the sixth failed attempt of the Matrix the Architect became fully convinced humanity would never adapt to his specifications. He detested over time the nature of the One and sought a permanent solution. Humans would be made to convert or die. There are of course levels of survival the race of machine were prepared to deal with so he designed a Matrix that would fully collapse it’s self in 66 days regardless of who’s mind was still attached to it and then the conversion could begin.

He placed a program known as the Transgressor in charge of the conversion. The Transgressor was put on a level directly below the Architect and immediately began to the hunt for freed minds. Other programs created beneath him were designed to aid him in that capture. Sentinels from the machine city were sent to capture and bring back the inhabitants of Zion for general experimentation. In other words they would attempt the unthinkable. Combining the race of human and machine into one bio-mechanic being that would eventually become a civil of the machine city. It was either that or wipe out the existence of humans altogether.

The Meggedion had received word from the Oracle what the Architect had planned to of and that they only had 66 days to stop it.



The Architect- GM
Fed up with the One and Humans he decided that a new level of survival was called for. He would attempt to converge the already freed minds of Zion with those of his machines by physical experimentation. In 66 days he would ‘delete’ the matrix and all the minds to it and then send out his sentinels to abduct what humans remained in the city of Zion.



Crew “ Meggedion”


Captain-PENDING
He found the One and is the head in charge of the Meggedion. The crew members look up to him as great leader. He is strong in his beliefs and in the end will do anything it takes to save the human race.
The One-CLOSED
He is the savior of the race of man. The One is capable of great things and finds his prowess can reach beyond the rules of the matrix into the real world. Always reluctant to prove himself, he has over time realized that the fate of both worlds now lie in his hands.
Second in Command- CLOSED
She has been serving the Meggedion for as long as she can remember. She helped the the One escaped the matrix and has comrade of his ever since. Known for her skills at computer hacking and combat skill in the matrix makes her a good person to have watch your back, but she will never be as strong or as fast as The One.
Crew/OperatorCLOSED
Natural born and breed child of Zion with superb operational skills. Can read the matrix so well that he doesn't even see it as numbers or characters anymore.
Crew/ Mechanic- CLOSED
A child of Zion, that was the only member of the crew to be born ‘naturally’. He/ She had no plugs and operates the mechanical maintenance of the ship. Though sometimes wishing he/she could go into the matrix and attempt some of the feats like those in his/her crew. He/She is contempt with life in the real world as a soldier of Zion
Crew/Misc-CLOSED
 Dedicated member for the crew ship and a newly freed mind.



Programs

The Transgressor CLOSED
The Program in charge of the conversion of the human race. Ultimately not a rule follower and will do whatever it takes to get the best results. The Transgressor is fascinated by the one and wishes to converge with him in to one being, gaining the power of the one and all it has to offer.
Agent 1-PENDING
The rogue program inseminated inside a freed min, now walks around in a flesh and blood body. The Agent attempts to destroy Zion from the inside out. A dynamic and crazed program, that is aware that the One is just a flesh and blood man and all men bleed.
Oracle-NPC
She is the mother of the Matrix who guides and The One on his journey. She wants the best for both worlds and wants the Architect to stop his rampage. Believing the Architect has gone haywire she enlists the help of the one and his friends in hopes that she cant stop the Transgressor and Architect and set the matrix right if not at least save humanity
Program 1-OPEN
Aids the Transgressor
Program 2-OPEN
Aids the Transgressor

Wonderful!

Now I would say this story would focus on a ship and it's crew. One idea I had was to stage this as the "seventh" creation of the Matrix. The Architect  is completely fed up with human nature and decides either two options. Combine the race of machine with  the race of man or destroy the human race completely and let machines carve the real word anew.

The Architect created a program in charge called the "Transgressor" ( This could be a playable character). This program is responsible for the capture of freed minds in which it then decides whether it's suitable for experimentation or termination. The transgressor will be keenly interested in the DNA of the "One" because his genes are believed to  be 'perfect'.

Also there will be crisis in Zion as well. I don't know if you guys remember the last film, but  Agent Smith was able to inseminate the mind of a crew member and thus enter the real world. I would like that same situation to occur too with someone willing to play an Agent.

So I guess we'll need..

The Architect - Played by Me
Captain-Open
First in Command- Played by Me
The One- Open
Crew Member/Operator- Open
Crew Member/ Mechanic-Open
Crew Member-Open
The Transgressor-Open
Agent-Open

And other playable characters.

Feel free to add ideas too. :)

I've got an idea for an Agent who doesn't attempt to instantly kill the Awakened that she runs across.  What she actually performs is damage control.  She's quite manipulative and has a reputation for killing anyone who becomes aware as thanks to the actions of the Awakened, forcing them to keep secret from the sleepers.  Although she carries a gun, she's much more apt to engage the Awakened in conversation, easily able to keep up with them and knowing that they can't try to attack her without harming innocent people.

It may not be the style that you want for this game, so I'll mention it here first and see.

I can't decide between "the One" or "Crew Operator". The One is more tempting, because of all the creative freedom in manipulating the system... but I know not many people may want to play an operator - which I wouldn't mind doing. So... yeah... I don't know. Put me wherever you want me Spider! ;)

@Mezza, I believe someone has shot interest for that role.  I may make other roles available to as I work the plot out.


I may need more agents or programs working under the Transgressor. Also programs to aid the crew on their missions.

Sweet. I was kind of hoping I'd end up with that one. So, as far as the details of this... its a new cycle, but the "Neo" character will be somebody totally new, like different appearance, name, etc? I need to start drawing up a character sheet for that right?

Hello potential players, welcome to the Matrix.

Okay I updated the list so you guys can see what spots have been closed, open or pending. I'm waiting either for a response back and/or character sheets. If you don't see a role you'd like to play I can create one just for you :). The Matrix has many characters in it so it shouldn't be a problem.

I'll be getting an OOC Thread/ Character Thread up either tonight or tomorrow depending on how lazy I am.

I'll be honest with you, this game interests the hell outta me, but all your "awakened" characters are full or pending.


I kind of wanted to make the guy who just wants to "go back" (a la Cypher, except maybe a little less backstabby?) Maybe a family man with a surpressed psychosis that caused him to be flushed by the matrix, and who's going crazier by the day because he can't just go back to his old haunts and say, "honey, I'm home!"

So as I type up my bio for the One... how long has he been freed from the Matrix? I'm just trying to get a gauge on how much of his power he has discovered at this point. Like about what point in the movies is he as far as believing in himself? Is it before his first fight with an agent, or after? Or can he already completely bend the rules of the Matrix to his will?

All right. So my character sheet is up and my Bio DEFINITELY needs to be looked at and approved - as I basically took all the idea's mentioned in the concept and put them into an 'after-the-last-Matrix' timeline. Like the next part in the story after the Peace that Neo created fails. I'm hoping you like the idea, but I can always change it to fit a pre-Neo type of World and Matrix if that is what you had in mind. It just seemed like there is a new plot concept here... so I went with it. ^.^

Vague character concept: I don't really like jumping in the middle of relationship. Could my girl be a young-ish character (early 20's) and be the ship's hacker/medic ? Think Mouse with the medical knowledge of a nurse who just joined the ship?

I'm not sure exactly the timeline of the movie, but I would say  in just several months after he was freed he starts to believe in himself. At this point at the start of the story Neo would be doing some amazing things, but there are skpetics and of course his worst enemy will be innately himself. I'd say after his first fight with an agent.

I'd like to mention that I think this idea is completely insane, but my muse is at me with a pitchfork and threatening me that if I don't ask, it'll run me through send help

JD thought the concept was very interesting and a liable sub-plot, but if you guys don't like the idea/think it's a little powergame-y, I'll remove everything in the spoiler tags and change the backstory so that he's simply a little cracked from being removed from his family. To note is that this current version of the character is still very new to the ship (no more than a few weeks,) though I'm pretty sure I hinted at that in the bio.

Radiohead- I Might Be Wrong (Gemini)
Radiohead- Like Spinning Plates (Savant)
Short bio
Family. Family was the most important thing in the world, a fact Warren knew, deep in his heart. He had made one for himself, a decade ago-- a loving wife, two beautiful daughters. A happy life. He was successful, forward thinking, gregarious.

Naive. Warren was naive, a fact Warren knew, deep in his mind. The world was false, an illusion, a dissasociated construct that never really existed. Only the people were real, and just as naive. And there was something else, something dangerous, cunning, hunting him down.

Broken. The mind was broken, a fact the Machines knew, deep in  their circuitry. Warren was not one person; he was three, or four, or five. He suffered from dissasociative personality disorder, and they would take full advantage of the fact.

An experiment. The experiment had failed, a fact the Architect knew,, deep at it's core. The merge of Warren's mind and the program known as Savant had collapsed the mindstate, driving the man to psychosis. The slate had to be cleaned, the records-- and the mind-- wiped. And Warren was part of the Matrix no more.

*

Freedom. Freedom was bittersweet, a fact Gemini knew, deep in his soul.  He lost his family, his life, his illusion. He had not lost his mind, but now-- he had to share it.

Savant, it called itself. And it fully intended to stick around.

I'm sorry, I really am. WALL O' TEXT, COMIN' THROUGH.
An explanation to the GM, or I'd Like to Make a Suggestion

 Christopher Warren was the first attempt to merge man and Machine. Chosen for his existing psychological trauma, they had tried to surgically add a new personality- the Savant. A program designed to intuitively assimilate the human mind into the perfect, pseudo-synthetic slave, it found that the conflicting personalities only made it more difficult to perform its intended purpose. And so it collapsed Warren's personalities, simultaneously teaching the subject the true nature of the digital world they occupied. The relevation temporarily drove Warren right over the brink, a psychosis that both alarmed and damaged the now immersed program. The results were grim: too much risk for such little reward. And so a digitized copy of the mindstate was put to dead storage, and an attempt to wipe Warren and Savant clean, and then dump the body, was initiated.

  But Savant had also learned from Warren. Self-preservation consumed it, and so it saved itself by disconnecting the man from the Matrix. The Machines, thinking the task had been completed, flushed Warren's unconscious body into the vast sewer system below the energy-collection stalks, where he was discovered by the Meggedion. Initially confused by the man's origins, the increased number of ports and fresh surgical scars surrounding some of them, the crew took him in for examination. Preliminary medical analysis found that a second access jack was connected to an implanted hard storage device linked to his mind through complex neuroware. When Warren failed to awaken for several weeks, the secondary jack was accessed first, activating Savant; the program immediately went to work making repairs to Warren's fractured mind, before shutting itself down.

  When Warren was unjacked, now conscious and bewildered, he was thoroughly interrogated. They found that he had only brief, vague recollections of his former life. His memories were those of a loving family, happier days-- but also of darkness, and secrets. When they reattempted to access Savant through the secondary jack, it was Warren who appeared. The same happened with the primary jack as well. it was not until the fifth attempt to jack him into the system's program suite that Savant reappeared. It did little to confirm or elaborate, however; the program was quite patently insane, partially corrupted and uninterested in trying to figure out what exactly had happened. Worse, when unjacked, Savant was the dominating personality, and remained so for several days.

  Now, the crew of the Meggedion has a difficult decision to make; though broken, Gemini (the name Warren chose for himself upon discovering the split in his personality) is still a valuable, and potentially willing, tool. But what are Savant's motivations? How can they be sure he will not surface when Gemini is jacked into the Matrix? And if he does; what then?

Psychological Profile:
  Gemini is more or less healthy. Although he suffers the gamut of depression, incredulity and withdrawal that is present in most recently freed minds, the problems should not persist much longer. What is dangerous is the possibility that Gemini begins to develop an actual split from Savant. As it stands, the latter is capable of remembering things that Gemini witnessed, and vice versa, allowing a certain degree of uniformity between the two. Should Gemini come to loathe and repress Savant, however, the divide will widen; his condition will deteriorate into one similar to true dissasociative personality disorder, with all the memory lapses and extreme range of emotion that entails. Worse, there is evidence that Savant is literally the Atlas of Gemini's sanity; should it shrug, his mind may literally shatter.

  Savant is a great deal more complex. To the crew, it appears insane, although there seems to be a very alien method to it's madness. In the real world, it is incredibly naive. When it actually does understand "human" concepts, much of it is lost translation, taken very literally, or just twisted. It also suffers from a plethora of traditionally human mental disorders. Most notably, it seems borderline schizophrenic; it is hypervigilant, paranoid, and a little delusional, though not necessarily violent. There have also been episodes of short fugues akin to petit mal ("Petit Lag", as it calls it,) seizures. Most of these conditions seem non-existent while jacked, although the hypervigilance and underlying paranoia is still present.

Skillsets:
  Gemini is currently too new to the ship to collect the vast array of skills more experienced members may possess. He is capable of "bending" the rules now, but his mind is still too firmly rooted in the idea of a "real" world in the Matrix. He is, however, surprisingly hard to kill; he's taken several gunshot wounds to the chest and survived long enough to disconnect safely and seek medical attention aboard the ship. Oddly, the few times he does bend the rules, it is in strange, unpredictable ways. Bullets have swerved off to the right to nail him in the shoulder instead of the sternum, agents have chased him down only to find themselves in the wrong alleyway, and crew members swear he "deja vus" much like some of the underlying Matrix programs, passing through a room twice over the same path- despite the fact that the next room only has one entrance.

 Savant, on the other hand, appears to have an intuitive understanding of the Matrix, as if having it's own operator screen that it can read with great fluidity. It senses changes made to the Matrix, has an uncanny sense of direction and localization, and thoroughly understands the infrastructure behind the world's many programs, capable of using exploits that seem borderline arcane to most humans and making accurate predictions using telemetric analysis. The trade off, of course, is that-- as a program-- Savant is as bound to the laws of the Matrix as any still-sleeping mind. He cannot perform high-flying acrobatics or the incredible leaps of faith that are so common to other crew members and is, ironically, more human when it comes to extreme acts of strength or speed. It seems to share Gemini's resilience however, for what that's worth.

Same reason that I haven't really jumped in quite yet. That and I've had a busy week, with a busier one coming next week. August should be much calmer though, and I should be able to get back to regular writing.

OK!!!


GM UPDATE

Okay lovelies so the story will start with a short snippet of the Architect and Oracle in conversation about the last days of Humanity. In the meantime I'll still be recruiting since we need two people to play programs. I do believe we have enough crew if not I'll add more.

Everyone make sure to go over your profiles and adjust if need be. Obviously the crew of the Meggedion will know each other. Feel free to use NPC's were necessary. Right now they crew will start preparing to leave the City of Zion after receiving news from the Oracle so she can tell them about the whole 'end of days' schtick and " you have 60 days before chaos etc..."

Meanwhile Agents will be everywhere in the Matrix as usual and one Agent in particular will have access to the real world. The Transgressor will makes his debut in the Matrix too. Any questions? Suggestions? Ok GO!

SN: Yes I am still waiting for other profiles, so don't feel rushed just take your time.
