    2. PLOT & WORLD BASICS

      THIS IS A MODERN FANTASY COLLABORATIVE WRITING RP CATERING TO OLDER PLAYERS (25+) WITH A SLOWER, MORE RELAXED PACE.

      IN 2010, THE WORLD DRASTICALLY & PERMANENTLY CHANGED BY WHAT BECAME KNOWN AS THE MULTIVERSE RESONANCE EVENT. IN A SINGLE BREATH, OUR WORLD CROSSED WITH AN UNKNOWN NUMBER OF ALTERNATE UNIVERSES, BLEEDING INTO EACH OTHER. EARTH WAS SUDDENLY A REALM OF MAGIC AND MONSTERS. FOR NEARLY TEN YEARS THE NAME OF THE GAME WAS SURVIVAL, IN A WORLD THAT BORDERED ON TRULY APOCALYPTIC PEOPLE STRUGGLED TO FIND FOOD, SHELTER AND FOUGHT THOSE SCROUNGING FOR THE SAME MEAGER RESOURCES.

      BUT A SHIFT HAS FINALLY OCCURRED. BASIC NEEDS ARE ONCE AGAIN BEING MET, PEOPLE NO LONGER STRUGGLE JUST TO SURVIVE. NOW THE GAME IS POWER, WHO HAS IT, WHO TAKES IT AWAY, WHICH APEX PREDATOR WILL FIND THEMSELVES AT THE TOP OF THE FOODCHAIN AND ONCE THERE, HOW LONG CAN THEY STAY THERE.

      THE STORY IS CENTERED IN NEW YORK CITY BUT EXTENDS ACROSS THE WORLD. IT BLENDS A VARIETY OF GENRES; A MOSAIC OF OVERLAPPING REALMS INCLUDING ELVES, LYCANTHROPES, ALTERED HUMANS AND,OF COURSE, MAGIC

      IN THIS SECTION YOU WILL FIND NOT ONLY THE CLIFFNOTES FOR ALL THINGS RESONANCE, BUT MORE INFORMATION REGARDING THE STATE OF THE WORLD, WHAT THE NEVUS IS, WHAT THE STATE OF POLITICS IS, AND EVEN A TIMELINE OF EVENTS. THIS SECTION GIVES YOU A GOOD FEEL FOR WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THE RESONANCE EVENT THAT SPLINTERED THE WORLD FROM THE WORLD WE KNOW TODAY.

    9. CLOSED CHAPTERS

      As Factions, Events, Locations fracture or close in the game we do not want to simply delete them. Like a good book they are the chapters that have led to where the story is now. Here is where we store the information of the bygone era. Factions here are no longer active, locations here either no longer exist or are shut down, events are closed out - but you can read up to know more about the history of the world you write in!!
