The World RE; Ver 3.5 (.Hack OOC.)

Welcome....to (The World.)...  YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.  This is how it got started.  The anomaly known as AIDA, Artificial Intelligence Data Anomaly, became (aware) when a few random bits of code saw a PK, (player kill,) performed on a new player named Haseo.  The AIDA hid in the system, growing stronger while simply observing for several months while Haseo became stronger in the game, earning a name for himself as a ruthless hunter of PKs, becoming called The Terror of Death, the PKK who hunted down Player Killers who targeted players for sport.  Being 'killed' in the game made one lose a level or two and their treasures were fair game for the PKs.  When AIDA became active however, and began manipulating the players and the game space itself, simple things like PKs became permanent in the real world as well, among other things that AIDA did while it was on the rampage within the confines of the game.  It would take many months, but eventually the anomalous data was erased thanks to Haseo and the eight phases of Morganna, or eight keys that were hard coded into the system in case something like this occurred.  There were more than a dozen people put into comas during this time of strife between the Epitaph Users and the data anomalies known as AIDA, but in the end it was Haseo that put an end to it when the source of the outbreak was found and deleted before it could self destruct, causing what would have been known as a World Wide System Crisis, (If I remember right lol.)

The World has seen another reformat of its old operating system, and so far we have had no issues with anything like AIDA or the old Data Bugs that were running amok in the first rendition of the game.  Aura, the first true and benevolent AI that was born in the first version through some miracle of computing programming, has been restored to her former glory as an unseen guardian in the newest version of The World.  Those at CC Corp's highest echelons are the only ones that know of her existence.  Still, even with her aid, and with a new team of Epitaph Users, there has started a rumor of new trouble brewing within...The World....

System Administrators; Ovan and Master Yata, signing out as of 1600 hours after uploading new report on new system errors.  Included is a recorded video bite of Kuhn and his Avatar locked in battle with AIDA.  Note the Data Drain ability he uses and the fact that PC Atoli passes out, for it is reported she passes out in real life as well as in the game when AIDA attacks her.

YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

I know I just opened up another thread a minute ago, but I figured I'd do this while I was conscious lol.

There are going to be several 'towns' and the countless fields one can get to through the use of a Chaos Gate.  The towns are different servers, and each one has a unigue feel to them.  Delta Server is Mac Anu, the Water Capital as an example.  It's the place where all beginning players start off at.  Levels 1-50 are recommended for any of the areas you can reach through the Gate.  I won't be paying attention much to levels though, wanting this to be a story driven type of deal lol.  There will be an arena probably, depending on how many people I get for this.

(Real Name);  Vergil Smith
Character Name; Katsumoto, The Red Samurai
Gender; Male
Age; 16
Game age; 215
Race;  Elven
Race Traits;  The elven race are the strongest in magical skills, being the oldest and wisest of all other beings.  Despite the fact that they faded from The World centuries ago with the deaths of the old Gods, they have appeared again, confirming old tales that they were simply hiding from Man.  Kind and compassionate, the Fair Folk have the unique ability to see in the darkest of places and are one with nature itself, feeling strongest in forested or plains type of Fields.
Appearance; (Facial appearance.)
  (Armor he wears.)
Class;  Samurai
Class Description;  While the Samurai class has no defensive ability, (no block,) the player will soon come to realize that one is not needed once the unique playstyle involved with this class is mastered.  Able to slow down time around themselves or give the appearance as such to the player, the Samurai are the deadliest sword fighting class in The World's expanded environment, giving players the ability to one shot kill almost any adversary, much like the warriors of old legends and stories.  They are the only sword type that has the true ability to 'block' an enemy attack and counter with one of their own, all other players having to hold their defensive stance until an opening presents itself.  The Samurai makes their own in between attacks, provided the timing is perfectly executed.  Magical skills are limited, but the higher level of Samurai have been known to master attack spells to aid in their ways of fighting.
Weapon of Choice;  Japanese Katana
Epitaph User...Only 4;  The 1st Phase, Skieth, the Terror of Death.  (Unaware he has the Avatar...for now.)
EU appearance; 
Game History;  (Optional. A history you created for your PC in The World)
(Real) History; Vergil Smith joined The World because his brother was put into a coma a week ago during as of yet unknown cause.  The last thing his brother was doing was playing the MMORPG that has swept the real world over yet again despite having two versions out already, both of which were rumored to have similar issues.  He is determined to find out what happened, and no one will get in his way.
Ons; (See sig link.)
Offs; (See sig link.)

I know I mention skills and magical attacks and all that as if it was part of a rule system and all that, but really it's not.  I won't make you guys have any prior knowledge of the series to pull this off.  Also, Epitaph Users and their Avatar powers are not required, but it will be necessary for at least two more people to help use these ultra powerful PCs and all for the 'viral' enemies I plan to throw at us from time to time.  Romance between 'online' characters are more than welcome, and more so, expected since I plan to throw this one as well into the Non Con Exotic area.

AIDA and Data Bugs have a few things in common.  They both have unlimited HP and magical power unless their data is rewritten or drained.  Both are able to fight outside the parameters set by the system, meaning they are tougher and faster than normal monsters have a right to be, this being more obvious in AIDA corrupted monsters and PCs that they can infect.  Data Bugs were strictly monsters, able to put players into comas if the players were defeated by the corrupted monster.  AIDA on the other hand were much better adaptable since they could control both monsters and PCs, boosting the emotions of the people they infected to dangerous levels, and gaining limited control as well at the same time.  See where this would fit better under Non Con Exotic?  Lol.

A small thing I forgot to mention before I head out.  Epitaph Users are gifted with special abilities that are only accessible by their Avatars that they are able to wield.  Kuhn's is a good example.  Magus, the 3rd Phase, AKA, the Propagation, has the ability to 'propagate' data at will, meaning that it can make clones of itself among other things.  This ability takes time to manage and the data created isn't a perfect copy by any means, but it can be used none the less as if it was.  When trying to create the core code to an Avatar and the link it shares with its Epitaph User, the tests failed and the idea of making more Avatars was scrapped.

Fidchell, The Prophet and the 4th Phase of the 8 Phases of Morganna, has the ability to grant its Epitaph User the power of Precognition, being able to foretell the future.  The only problem is that it cannot speak in plain English when doing so, instead saying confusing and often times abstract riddles.  Still, the very few times this power was used, everything Fidchell spoke of came to pass.

The rest I'll leave a link up to a wiki page.  Pick your Avatar if you're going for that and the rest can play as regular PCs within The World.

I know this hasn't gotten much interest, but be assured that despite the large CS Sheet I have up, I won't be making a big deal out of the rules that were applied to the shows and games themselves if they aren't followed or anything.  That's why I left it so open lol.  For those that are not in the know about .Hack anything, here's a basic summary.

.Hack//Sign if I remember right was about a player that for whatever reason had a major problem with his computer, headset, and the rest of the equipment used to get into the game, that being he couldn't log out and everything that happened to him was for real so to speak.  That was the start of the issues as Data Bugs started popping up on monsters.  The corrupted monsters, being invincible unless their data is rewritten, start attacking people and putting them into comas in real life.  Rumors start to sprout up out of the woodwork that there is a mysterious girl in white about the same time, seeming to be asleep four feet above a bed, and that if she wakes up or dies will determine the fate of The World and all of the people logged in or just on the net in general.

In the first of the games, .Hack//Infection for the PS 2 is the first of four.  Kite, a Twin Blade and a new player to The World which has sold millions of copies world wide, has to see a friend of his who is a level 50 Blade Master attacked and put into a coma the same day by a monster that blocked and dodged everything that was thrown at it.  Before this though, a girl in white appears before Kite and his friend, giving a book and a warning to the one that uses it.  The mystery of how it happens only escalates when the girl in white appears before him again, and Kite and his new friends will have to unravel it before its too late.  Data Bugs become a permanent fixture shortly after the first boss or so.  By four they show up every other battle almost lol.  Only Kite can take them out then.

.Hack//G.U.  Rebirth sees the reformation of the entire core system of The World since a fire took out the main building where the game was broadcast from.  Haseo is introduced to it by two people that pretend to be his friend at first, showing him the ropes only to stab him in the back, literally, unaware that a new system called PK is allowed in this new edition.  Eight months, and Haseo becomes stronger, having seen a dear friend that was in the same guild as he was PKed by a legendary PKer shrouded in blue fire.  Revenge is the only thing on his mind after that, until he is Data Drained and his character, emails, member addresses, and equipment is deleted completely from his computer and his character is powered down from 133 to 1.  But, by being Data Drained as he was, Haseo unlocks a new power that is outside the system with the help of a mysterious group that works under the company that developed the game.

Most of my stuff comes from the G.U. series of games and the show, .Hack//Roots if I remember right.  Anyway, youtube the shows if you can or rent the games sometimes if you want to learn much more about it all.  Wiki helps as well of course lol.  Good night and I'll see ya late tomorrow.
