Make up one. If you have time, you can fill in a character creation sheet: https://scratch.mit.edu/p
rojects/383044956/. Otherwise, you can borrow one without an owner below, or leave a comment with a quick bio:
Name//Age//Gender//Planet//Personality//Job (if on planet)//Basic looks
Getting approved: Feel free to RP with borrowed characters (as long as they have no owner), but make sure you get a comment or project bio approved by at least 1 manager before you RP with them.
Limit of 2 characters for now. Managers can have 3.
The Network is in a dwwual-reality (just made that word up); there are two worlds, and while their societies have similarities, they are separate places, not alternate realities, if that makes sense.
Earth is, well, earth. This is where most people live.
Planet, or The Planet, is a separate world. It was discovered by a man known as "The Professor" when he got too immersed in his VR gear. They have some pretty cool technology including mind to mind communication.
Planet is a utopia and everyone is invited!!!
No it's not, there are evil peeps that do evil stuff. Duh.
STARTING A ROLE PLAY
Just make a comment! Start your own thread, don't reply to an existing RP. When opening an RP, make sure you establish the time and setting. For instance:
"Kyle checks his phone for the eleventh time since he began his homework. Kyle tries to TPC Lizzie or Anna, but fails miserably. He is really starting to miss the mind-to-mind communication found on Planet. From his window, he sees someone walk in the front gate and approach the door. They disappear inside. Then, there is a knock on his bedroom door."
This implies a time - it is probably after school, since Kyle is doing his homework.
We know where Kyle is - he is in his bedroom. More importantly, he is on Earth.
It also opens up room for the next person - Anyone can continue this, because it is not specified who knocked on the door.
QUICK CHARACTER GUIDE:
(If their bio is here, they don't have a project about them yet. Otherwise see their dedicated project.)
She works with Kyle in recruiting new people to live on Planet. She's Anna's sister, and she has cool hair.
➤Pedro (That plant guy)
Lex, which is short for Alexander, works behind the scenes in Network Development, but it's all top secret.
➤The Secretary (Her name is Bianca, but no one cares about her) :(
She lives on Planet and works at a big firm. She's also Lex's mum.
Planet has two dominant species. Most other life-forms haven't learnt to walk yet. No one can 'own' a species, and neither can you create one.
➤Cyclo-Fly - See the project!
➤Much more coming!!!
➤TPCing / TPCed
Texting, but mind to mind
Think collaborating with someone on a google doc / mindmap sort of thing in your heads. Can also be looking something up on a Network Database
A person who was born on Planet. They have no pupils in their eyes. They are seen as of a higher social class than regular people on planet. They have to wear special contact lenses on Earth.(creeepppyyy)
The Network is the name for the VR web that is on Planet. This includes mind-to-mind communication, very detailed and realistic holograms and the likes. Imagine everything a powerful computer and ipad can do, combined, inside your head, instantly. Pretty cool, right. Note: This does not mean there is no privacy. The people on Planet have managed to keep a lot of privacy, because they have such a small population.
An Earth-like planet.
The business run by Kyle and Lizzie as a way to get people to and from Planet.
People are handpicked to go to planet. They use a counselling service because people won't just walk in (hopefully).
Oh and please ignore the fact that kids have jobs on Planet. If you want a job, and are mature enough, you get a job.
Why do they talk? Cant they just TPC?
Yes, but if you were next to your friend, would you talk to them or text them? Talking is faster, since TPCing requires you to read someone else's message, then dictate a response (in your head), then wait for them to do the same. It's fast, but still harder than talking.
