This RP has been an idea in the back of my mind for weeks now, I need to put it onto paper or I'll go mad (even if it dies soon).
This was heavily inspired by the show The 4400 (highly recommend, a very good show).
A hundred or so years in the future, Earth prospers, space travel to other planets has just started, and things are looking up.
Until, while exploring space, humans stumble upon a Type 3 race with massive amounts of power and control over almost all galactic civilizations.
Humans put up a fight against this powerhouse of a race, but to little avail, and the affectionately named "Mindflayers" take over.
Using their psonic powers, the Mindflayers, erase most of humanity's ability to use their imagination, rendering them as nothing but slaves to a cause that their minds may not even comprehend.
However, some of the most brilliant scientists and a small collection of humanity escape to a small community underground. While well-protected and hard to find, it wouldn't be long before the mindless slaves of the tyrannical race they once knew would find them.
So the greatest minds got to work on a project to somehow save humanity. Taking out the Mindflayers wasn't an option, but something else opened up.
Many years ago, humanity was so creative the worlds they made existed on different planes and dimensions, and it turns out, people could access the worlds of fantasy conjured up by imagination. However, there was a catch. Once there, they would lose all memories and could never go back.
Another sad fact was that only more imaginative individuals could access those realms, and since most adults were lacking in that department, they could only send the children there.
Knowing the fictional worlds were dangerous, the brilliant minds gave each of the children a special gift before sending them to the fictional places. These powers were highly useful, but more often than not came with a just as detrimental drawback. But it was a small price to pay as to not become a mindless slave...
TLDR; Aliens cause humanity to send their children to fictional worlds with balanced powers.
You've gotten this far, here are the rules:
1: Basic RP rules apply here.
2: Your character can only be between the ages of 5-18.
3: Make the special power balanced to some extent.
EX: Let's say your character can turn into a cat. Then they would only be a normal cat and they could be a cat only for a short time. If you need help, I can help you with this ( though I'm certain we can all think of drawbacks on our own).
4: Whatever fictional world your character goes into, it has to have lots of lore and at least a medium-sized fanbase.
EX: Warrior cats, The Elder Scrolls, SCP, Star Wars, etc...
5: I don't want too many worlds and characters to manage, so try to use something well-known.
6: Your character will automatically be turned into the main species of the world (a cat if it's a Warriors Returnee, a dragon if it's WoF, you get it).
6.2: If humans are any main characters, then your character will be a human anyway (like Elder Scrolls or Star Wars).
7: Shoot, I don't want to destroy your brain with rules, so just have fun and ask if you're confused.
8. In every world, there is a place that Returnees can go to meet each other, but due to the memory wipe, they won't know each other (thanks to @Jakester2006 for the idea!).
Name// Age// Gender// Sexuality (optional)// Looks (keep them as human as possible if they are humans)// Wears// Personality// Power/Drawback to power// Fictional world they now live in// Voiceclaim (optional)// Backstory (optional and they will not remember, just for extra info)// Theme song (optional)// Other
I'm going to be pretty lenient with this RP, so just have fun.
Also, feel free to use your OCs in this RP, but be warned you're gonna have to change them a bit in order for them to fit (or maybe not, anything can happen!).
