In order to avoid paradoxes, if your character is here due to traveling from the past or future, you shall treat this world as an alternate time line or universe. The old time line is lost forever to your character, and the story unfolds on this time line ONLY. No exceptions. Your character also can not time travel again.
Temporal Time Warps
While we embrace this time-line as fixed and linear we do allow 'temporal time warps', which is to say we allow time fluctuations. A person may be able to slow time in a fixed area or generate a field that allows them to slow time and squeeze through it quickly which is a form of super-speed. Such an ability will have very, very short time limit. What is never allowed is TIME REVERSAL, time CANNOT be rewound.
ALSO NO INTERDIMENSIONAL TRAVEL - too close to above issues.
Technology for the most part is appropriate to modern day, real life Earth. As always, mod/admin discretion will be utilized in order to preserve the continuity and purity of this modern fantasy site as it is not sci-fi. We ask that you place a ticket for approval of plots and characters that are in the gray area of science fiction. As the game evolves into the next chapter, the world begins to research and experiment with the melding of tech and magic. We are yet to see where it will lead.
Here's a short list of example technologies that are NOT allowed:
- High functioning Artificial Intelligence (human robots that pass for human dont exist)
- Cybernetics (like shadowrun)
- Ray Guns
- Teleportation Machines
- Time Travel
- Wormholes or travel to other places in the solar system/galaxy/universe
- Faster than Light travel by mechanical means
List of examples in that 'gray area' (again minimal approvals as we limit sci-fi):
- Human genetic augmentation (though this tends to be very crude)
- High tech armor and weaponry that is exotic or currently experimental
- Some types of experimental aircraft
- Highly advanced Robots or primitive VI (virtual intelligence, not true AI)
The Vampire Virus (nocturnaeximius-virus), Lycanthrope Virus (lycaneximius-virus) and Zombie Virus (morteximius-virus) cannot be modified by science or magic. This is because they are a corner stone of our setting and any alterations to them would cause drastic changes to our world - IF they are ever permited to change it will be by a Moderator driven storyline to a fixed outcome. Your characters are, however, welcome to experiment away so long as those attempts end in failure. It was already suspected that the super-viruses are a combination of biology and magic, so many experiments are simply trying to prove that theory.
