Signup/OOC-WW XXXVIII:The Matrix

Recommended Posts

Where do babies come from?

Why is the sky blue?

What are ghosts?

What is deja vu?

Why does all meat taste of chicken?

Why do we dream?

 

 

It is our world. It is 1999. You wake up, you get ready for your day, then you work, you play, you finish. You go to bed.

You get up every day and do this.

 

Something seems fundamentally wrong, though you've never been able to put your finger on it.

 

Until Wednesday, January 13th, 4:20 PM, when you get an e-mail that changes everything.

 

 

This is the beginning. Who you are and what you do with it is up to you.

 

 

(signup will be open until January 30th, or until we get a definite group of ten or more, whichever comes first)

I'm in

Character to come

 

Edit:

Miss Amanda Hall/aka Alyssa

25

Preschool teacher

New enough at her job to still delight in it, but has never been able to escape the feeling that there should be more to life. Became a teacher because she thought she could learn what what she thinks is missing through teaching.

Edit part 2:

Her chosen name is Alyssa - Greek for Rational. Her years of reading and searching for more information has left her with a wealth of knowledge and her level head makes her a voice of reason even amidst chaos.

Count me in too. I'll put together a character and post back soon.

 

~~

 

Jarod Green by day - a support tech at an internet company. Altor by night - a wanna be hacker who spends his life skirting the edges of what's legal with computers... he doesn't have the skills or the dedication that the really talented hackers do, but he's a seeker... who knows there's something not quite right about the world he lives in.

It begins!

 

I'll leave the next three days, or until whenever you guys are ready for rp.

 

Roles will be PMed to you Sunday. Sunday will also be the first NPC death. We're using original rules for this one, mate! With one tiny excption: in the RP, you can take the option of wolf kills NOT being done by your character, and done through highly specialized NPC actions instead. If you take that option you may have me write out your kills, or write for the NPC yourself the whole way through. Your choice.

 

I'll tell you all about said NPCs when I PM the roles.

 

Meanwhile, the best sites of reference for our little game:

 

The official one

 

and of course, wikipedia

Anya Lestrova/Chaos

 

28, researcher at a biological lab. Specialist in genetics. Although she can be pretty charming when she wants to, she keeps mostly to herself. Her ideas and ideals have kept her away from most of the people who would call her a friend; her interest in genetics is driven by an almost obsessive wish to know where Humanity is going, besides where it came from. She can't escape the nagging sensation that there is something that does not fit in the general scenario.

The alias Chaos comes from her unstated conviction that chaos should be considered a driving evolutionary force.

Nathan Lestrova/Order

 

At 32 years old, Nathan is almost the complete opposite of his sister. He believes in Order, although not the Order that he sees around himself everyday. What is around him is too ordered, too perfect. He does not care a bit about his sister's research, preferring to bury himself in books. Both reading and writing. His writings range from the very philosophical to the absolutely common recipe book. A lot of his work isn't published and either lies around on hard drives or on sheets of paper neatly stacked in his apartment. Most annoying to his sister is the fact that Nathan always remembers exactly where he puts something, even if years have passed since he put that something there.

Zach Petit/Pico

 

Pico, as he goes by, came by the name due to his size. He is a little person, and is by no way ashamed of what he is. He works for a computer gaming company, particularly in the programming of MMO's, in which he gets quite involved, as he plays a few of them himself. His goal is to make his MMO's as real as life, and believes that he will someday achieve this. In his online world, he can be whoever he wants to be, and in a way, be who people expect him to be, because even though he is very comfortable being little, what annoys him is that all the big people still see him as some kind of freak, and not the human he is.

 

In his off time, if you can call it that, Pico throws himself into the online world, for games, for friends, for information. He needs to find some answers for questions he doesn't know he has, if only he knew where to look.

Matrix!!! WhooOO!

 

Ok...character character character.......

 

Name: Lindsey Mitchell

Occupation: video game programmer

Computer Alias: Ves

 

Lindsey has spent her life fighting the stereotypes of her sex, and everytime someone is surprised at her occupation (or rather her genious when producing written code) she gets sullen and angry. She has a bad temper, a sharp tongue, and is always hungry. When she's not sitting in the cramped offices of her fellow game producers spending 18-20 hours on the computer and eating stale pizza, she sits at home and lives her online life.

 

Her friends wonder if she sleeps at all.

 

Before becoming a programmer full time she once wrote story plots for the games. Her creativity often leads her to take strange risks in her coding that almost always turn out spectacular.

Do you mind if another one joins? ;)

 

---------------------------------

 

Name: Don Black

 

Occupation: Law student

 

Alias: Codex

 

 

A twenty-five year old law student of average appearance, Don appears to be just another young man approaching the test of the law exam, and bears the signs of worry displayed by many of his fellow students. But Don worries for a different reason.

 

He came into the law looking for a rewarding career in serving justice, yet finds that justice is not always served. Flaws lie in the materials he studies, warping justice and conflicting with his conscience. Something isn't right, but he can't lay his finger on the exact root of the problem, as it evades his most thorough examinations.

 

A result of this problem is that he has turned to the internet, traveling the wires of the world under the name of "Codex". Under this name he seeks answers, but finds far too little for his taste.

 

Perhaps this will change some day.

Welcome, mon bienvenue, welcome! The more the merrier!

 

Speaking of which, I'm holding off on *my* next rp post, because Kikuyu just expressed interest in playing to me yesterday, so I'm going to put in a brief hold whilst I make sure she has all pertinent info.

 

Don't imagine it'll take long.

 

(and may I say, my word, but this is a gung ho lot! And such graceful landings too! ^^)

I'm in.

 

Character:

 

Anzu, 17

 

Anzu is a J-Rock fan who spends her time alone or with a small group of fellow J-Rockers. She sells pencil, charcoal, and paint sketches for a living while practicing her other forms of strange art and kahnji. Her life is quiet and full of spectacular opportunities that other artists or J-Rock fan girls would die for, but inside she feels as if there are invisible walls around the world. Whether this is just her desire to leap into her drawings or a deeper insight she can't tell and brushes it aside as symptoms of her artistic madness. Every now and then she ventures online under the alias of Bob, a nice, unassuming name she thinks of as a laugh for her true self.

Seems interesting... let me try it...

 

*ahem*

 

Character: Alex Scott, 17. Majoring in Chemistry, with special interest for anything weird and unpredictable in the world of Chemistry (like new, synthetic radioactive elements). All his free time is spent playing MMORPG's. And while at it, he cannot avoid thinking that there is something lurking just behind the screen, or behind those atoms and molecules in his Chemistry books and notebook, that is waiting for him to grasp and show to the world.

 

Alias: Hassium

Woo, another WW game! Sorry for the late arrival!

 

Brown guinea pig with a white spot on one side / Pig

 

Alex always called his guinea pig, just Pig, whenever he remembered to take five minutes from his computer games that is...

 

Pig is a six month old guinea pig, a birthday present to Alex from his parents. He likes salad and carrots, but he usually gets only dry guinea pig food.

Okay, we lost a Mynx, so I axed her instead of a poor little defenseless NPC.

 

More posts by me to follow as soon as you guys post some more.

Sorry to do that to you, but as you can see, we're still in a very "back and forth" phase.

Since we have nine players, I went ahead and rounded up to two wolves for our purposes. Hope you don't mind. \;>)

 

Roles are PM'ed, and voting can begin as soon as you guys feel ready. Each day phase will be 12 ghours, or whenever everyone has voted, whichever comes first. Day phase begins now, so night will be at 3:11 AM, EST.
