The Grand Crossover RP - Pathway to Origin [OOC/Apps Closed for Finale]

Recommended Posts

Hopefully this doesn't violate forum rules, but I just wanted to say that it's really cool that this has been going on for so long. It's huge undertaking and I'm impressed that it is what it is. I've always seen it over the years and occasionally checked the IC thread to see what's going on. That's all, carry on ^^;

EDIT: Our main issue right now is that a lot of interactions are still tangled up. For example, one character might not be able to progress because they are waiting on another character, who is in turn waiting on a third character. As such, I'm going to speak to everyone directly to say which interactions need to be addressed.

1. @@Reinforce is all caught up on his posts. Apep attacked Rhada and Tenshi, and Darcy is waiting for Satori, who is in turn waiting for Neos. Chandra is trapped, which is going to require someone else to step in.

2. @@Kingdom Xathers is going at his own pace, and his characters are just fighting the Heralded Eldrazi. Because that's fairly isolated, I wouldn't worry.

3. @ is still busy, and since Nero was sent into his own fight anyone, what he's doing is more for his own sake. So I don't think he's holding up anyone.

4. @ - Hapshiel was detained by Metarchus, and LERNA just gave a command to Gyokuen and Hades, so there is no need to post.

5. @@Love of Ghibli is waiting for Byakuya to react to Dorian's latest attack. Otherwise, the last two posts are good opportunities, since Rhadamanthys could respond to Apep, and Butler's souls can follow LERNA's command.

6. @@Tesability Black - Please at least post with Gemini and Metarchus, because that fight is at a stalemate right now. Neos must also respond to Satori.

7. @@Dad - Isamy's been attacked by Reimu, and as I just mentioned, Neos is pulling on the spark, which is going to affect Isamy. They may not necessarily need a reaction, considering Isamy's current dormant state, but some acknowledge of what Reimu and Neos are doing would be appreciated. Dorian just blasted Byakuya in the face, so it's not clear how that's affected Byakuya. Kenpachi, Yachiru, Kratos, and Revy all seem to be on standby, so there's no real rush to post with any of them yet.

8. @ - I think there's enough going on with Tenshi to warrant a post, since Short-Hair could respond to Apep, and Nanashi is still stuck in her mind. Satori should respond to Darcy, but Satori herself is in turn waiting on Neos, which is where the tangled web of interactions is. There's no need to post with Reimu, who is still waiting to see how the attack damaged Isamy. Kazuya should move, though.



Additionally, due to the length of my collaborations @, Merciful has suggested to keep our posts hidden under spoilers for the foreseeable future, as they may be disruptive to the final boss battle. I would not want people to scroll through the collaborations and then miss anyone else's posts.

 

Hopefully, this status update should clean things up immensely.

Not really a status update yet, but I do want to follow up on the list of interactions.
 
1. @@Reinforce is still fine with Darcy and Chandra. Apep has been attacked by Rhadamanthys, but I think it's fine to wait for Tenshi to attack as well. There's no need to post.

2-3. @@Kingdom Xathers and @ are both keeping their own pace, so there is no need to post.

4. @ could post with LERNA, but there's no need to post with Hapshiel.

5. @@Love of Ghibli has posted with all of his characters, so there is no need to post.

6. @@Tesability Black is in the process of making a post.

7. @@Dad - I think Dorian is the only one fighting Byakuya, so the latest post could merit a response from Byakuya, but everyone else could also still post as well. There's a potential to post, but no major need for one.

8. @ is currently dealing with laptop issues.

 

 

So far it seems that Tesability and Nai are the ones who most need to post so the final battle can progress.

With Metarchus working alongside the Heralded Eldrazi, I've combined both of those fights into one section. Metarchus has also directed the Souls of the Eldrazi to attack everyone, so I've added that note to the majority of characters. I've made some exceptions where possible, but generally, everyone should at least acknowledge that their characters are being attacked by at least three of the Eldrazi. The battle against Apep is a little different, and is going off of my own assumption here, but I would say that the Eldrazi are trying to break through Ragnarok's cage before they could get to Tenshi and Rhadamanthys.

I think I'm going to make the mentions a regular thing now. While the status updates are already comprehensive, I think having two formats will help.

1. @@Reinforce - Chandra is still imprisoned by Isamy, so someone should probably help her. Darcy is waiting on Satori, but did get a message from Gemini, and could be under attack by the Souls of the Eldrazi. Apep has been attacked by both Rhadamanthys and Tenshi, and now is the time for Apep to fight back, especially now that she has been buffed by Metarchus.

2. @@Kingdom Xathers is busy for now. His main battles are focused on the majority of his characters trying to protect Alister, but his still in the tower, so Umbris and Gabriel may need to protect Alister from the Souls. Madama Styx is fighting the Heralded Eldrazi, and some of the Souls are presumably reinforcing the Herald, attacking both Jeanne and Madama Styx. And Bayonetta and Atsuko are still running somewhere else, where they might be attacked by the Souls.
 
3. @ is keeping to his own pace, though I should warn that, once the next page begins, Nero will be considered inactive. Since he's in an alternate dimension, he's probably safe from the Souls of the Eldrazi.

4. @ could post with LERNA, and Hapshiel is now free, though likely to be attacked by the Souls of the Eldrazi.

5. @@Love of Ghibli has posted with all of his characters. Dorian and Rhadamanthys have attacked, though it's possible to continue posting with Butlerok. Dorian and Butlerok would both be flanked by the Souls of the Eldrazi, but Rhadamanthys would be safe, as the Souls would first need to get through Ragnarok's cage.

6. @@Tesability Black has just posted with all of her characters. Though ironically, Gemini and Neos might both be under attack by the Souls of the Eldrazi.

7. @ has posted with Tenshi (Both of them), and is currently waiting for a response for Apep. Kazuya and Reimu are both staying to the sidelines for the moment, but could be attacked by the Souls of the Eldrazi. Satori has received a response from Neos, and it is now up to her to respond to Darcy to continue their plans against Metarchus.

8. @@Dad - Byakuya has been attacked by Dorian, and Byakuya needs to respond, especially since now Byakuya and Isamy have both been buffed by Metarchus. Kenpachi is free from his prison, so he and Yachiru can be active again. Kenpachi, Yachiru, Kratos, and Revy could all be under attack by the Souls of the Eldrazi.

Okay, it looks like some of the most tangled interactions have been tidied up right now.

1. @@Reinforce - Darcy and Satori and both going on the offensive against Metarchus. Apep suffered heavy damage from Tenshi's attack, so I personally wonder if she may be on her last legs. No need for Sim to post, since he's brought on two significant changes to the fight.

2. @@Kingdom Xathers might need to post soon when he has the chance. Metarchus is gathering all of his forces, so Team Lombax may need to defeat Gaius and save Alister soon rather than later.

3. @ also might want to post. When the next page begins, Nero will be considered inactive, so at the very least, I think Nero should finish his own personal battle. Maybe not join one of the main battles, but like with Team Lombax against Gaius, Nero is a bit too far removed from the major fights.

4. @ still has the option to post with LERNA and Hapshiel. I think Hapshiel just needs to either go after Metarchus if he's still in that fight, or look for someone else. LERNA needs to post for Butlerok's sake.

5. @@Love of Ghibli might need to at least post with Rhadamanthys. Dorian is still waiting for Byakuya's response, and I'm not sure if Butlerok can continue to post independently, or completely needs LERNA.

6. @@Tesability Black could probably wait for now. While Darcy has restrained Metarchus, it falls on Satori to attack with her Recollection, so Metarchus could either act now, or after the Recollection. Neos is waiting for a response from Dad, while Gemini is minding his own business, so I don't believe there's much urgency to post with Gemini.

7. @ could focus on the fights with Apep and Metarchus. Apep has attacked the Short-Haired Tenshi, and it seems that the internal story of Nanashi and Tenshi is not over yet. Darcy has restrained Metarchus, and now it falls to Satori to use the Recollection. Bel is waiting for an opening to attack Isamy or Byakuya, which could possibly wait until after Dad posts. Reimu is still on the sidelines, though her analysis on Byakuya's Bankai could help Bel find the opening.

 

8. @@Dad - Byakuya has been attacked by Dorian and Neos, and Byakuya needs to respond. Byakuya and Isamy have been buffed by Metarchus. Kenpachi, Yachiru, Kratos, and Revy could all be under attack by the Souls of the Eldrazi, and they can fight back. I want to say more people are attacking Byakuya and Neos, but it seems that people like Bel or Reimu are merely preparing, so Dorian and Neos would be the immediate threats.

Since my collaboration with @ has gone on for a while, I think now is the time to have a Table of Contents for the battle.

 

[spoiler=Team EriArthur vs. Protheus Maximus]1. The Funeral March

2. The Memories We Shared

3. Death and the Healing

4. Divided We Fall

5. Deciphering the Prophecy

6. Twilight of the Gods: Chapter 1

7. Twilight of the Gods: Chapter 2

8. Twilight of the Gods: Chapter 3

 

Ideally, two more posts remain in this collab. While the posts are very long - they're certainly novel-length - this could help to get everyone caught up in the lead-up to the end of the battle.

So, a collective headsup:

1.
@@Dad
@
Kenpachi and Hapshiel were freed from their individuals prisons due to Metarchus moving out of maintenance ranges. I thought I made that clear, but apparently I was more focused on posting than anything else.
 
2. The Souls of the Eldrazi have been melted by the Mad Blood, but that didn't come without consequence. A large amount of the map, excluding the lake, has been rendered without color and without any form of foliage as the melted Souls consumed the areas they landed upon. The trees lost will be restored by the next host post, but they will be the greyest trees ever. Fortunately for everyone else, the greying of the lands doesn't have much effect outside of the alteration of appearances. Instead, in their place is a large dragon from Ravnica known as Niv-Mizzet the Firemind. He is flying towards Metarchus' location near the tower at E2.
 
3.
@@Reinforce
Chandra is finally free, but Gemini wound up taking her place. If Gemini ends up disappearing while in Isamy's clutches, Neos is gonna be forced to be erased with him, due to the pair technically sharing the same soul.
 
4.
@@Reinforce
@
Metarchus is a bit...stuck in the air. He's been captured by Darcy's shadow tendrils and ended up forseeing an imminent future to come and so is preparing to fight off the Recollection with a Clash of Wills. While Clash of Wills is an Magic: The Gathering counterspell, it is also one that has the 'unless the controller pays' clause in it, which means that Satori could still overwhelm him if she's willing to burn the mana for it. However, a lot of mana will be needed to counter-counter the counterspell, as he would be using the equal of 6 mana (1 Base + 5 for X) in a MTG game, and that's in addition to the cost of the spell itself. Assuming the player casting it went second and was playing a mono-blue deck, Metarchus would need 12 turns to get that many lands to pull that if there weren't additional sources of mana in his control.

No mentions for this one. Just going to focus on the status update. We're almost done with the current page of the roleplay, but a few of the most recent posts have helped to clear up some issues with the battle, so I believe this merits a status update now, as there are likely to be other major posts coming up, and I would like to space them out between the status updates.

Going to be a bit erratic right now, but this is more of a preliminary post covering a few things.
 
Yesterday marked one year since my party of characters began their battle against @'s Protheus Maximus. While I estimate that there are about two posts left in our collaboration, the point remains that my characters have long since been egregiously lagging behind. And that's on me. My activity on the site as whole suffered in 2014 through 2016, and the damage has been done. Even still, I am determined to finish this fight, and bring my characters to the final boss fight.
 
Speaking of which, there are three stages projected in this fight, and we are still only on the first. Given the nature of this first stage, I see the battle as having had multiple rounds within it. Sometime over the next few days, I will post a formal status update to keep everyone up to speed. Following that, I will write a boss post with Hollow Isamy, which I hope should begin the final round of this stage and serve as a prelude to Stage 2. This roleplay began on July 7, 2013. Our fifth anniversary is in less than a month, or just under four weeks. My hope and preference is that July 7 will be the date that Stage 2 begins.
 
Due to personal matters, @@Tesability Black may need to step out of the roleplay. What will become of her characters is still being decided, so I will try to work out something there with some considerations towards that prelude to Stage 2 and the anniversary.

 

Although this is ostensibly our "endgame", this roleplay has dragged on for the better part of five years. While I do not have any intention of rushing this story to an anticlimactic finale, and hope to have some semblance of a satisfying conclusion in spite of what has happened, we do need to bring this story towards that conclusion, satisfying or otherwise. Please be prepared for this battle to advance towards the next Stage.

 

While we've been primarily discussing on Skype, in case anyone is more active on Discord, you may join this roleplay's channel here: https://discord.gg/C7sJyv

 

We've rarely used it, but I believe now is as good a time as any to plug it.

I apologize for being so late with this latest status update. Our fifth anniversary is in three days, and I hope that posting this now will help people to post in the meantime if necessary. I've tagged everyone for ease of helping everyone notice these, and will continue to do so in future status updates.

Hey guys, most of you already know this but I recently stumbled upon Roll20, an online tabletop service which allows us to use custom maps and place tokens and everything, it's pretty great. I genuinely wish I discovered this waaayyy earlier during the GCRP's run. Still, better late than never :D

 

We aren't spontaneously becoming an RPG mind you. This exists only to complement Roxas's status updates.

 

There'll be a link to this in the Discord & Skype chats if you guys want to move your characters yourself. Otherwise, just list your positions in-post and me/Roxas will take care of it.

 

I'm hoping this will help:

1. Encourage y'all to actually list positions

2. Clear TONS of confusion about what's what, where's where

3. Help with visualization of the final battle

 

And without further ado, based on Roxas's status update above, here's the updated Forgotten Forest map:

(for those of you who didn't list your positions, I had to estimate based on your descriptions, so message me if it's inaccurate)

smiddqD.jpg

 

 

 


 

 

 

Oh and one more thing.

 

HAPPY 5TH GCRP ANNIVERSARY!!!

 

It's been a crazy ride thus far, and it's crazier still to think that we've actually spent five years doing this thing. Exactly five years ago most of you applied on this OOC thread, and yet you're all still there. That's just so weird to think about. I can't thank anyone enough for sticking along on this journey for so much time - in my personal opinion, it's exactly because we came this far that we can't afford to rush an ending now, that we gotta power through to our epic conclusion in these last few months. And that requires taking this final boss down! Please continue to hang in there, everyone!

 

Hollow Isamy is nearing the last of her life, so it's going to take a few strong attempts to shatter that mask and end her. Then once she's defeated, I'll be sending out my final rollcall. Fight on, fight on~

 

P.S. Let's not hit our sixth anniversary xD

Alright, going to have an informal status update summarizing my latest post.

@@Maeriberii Haan
- Hollow Isamy is trying to stall Nanashi by doubting her identity.
- Hollow Isamy is taunting both Koishi and Satori, telling Satori to die and for Koishi to get rid of her.
- Reimu’s barrier is still holding Gula Dracolich back enough, though it’s focused on Team Dorian at the moment.
- A lesser drake attacked Bel and Culebre and exploded, attempting to bathe them in black fire and overheat the COMP. Amaterasu was caught up in snow along with Killua and Gon, but Hollow Isamy is ignoring them all for now.

@ - A lesser drake attacked Nero and exploded, attempting to bathe him in black fire.

@@Love of Ghibli - Although Rhadamanthys’ wyvern was powerful, Dorian and Butlerok’s fire attacks ended up empowering Gula Dracolich enough to devour the wyvern. Gula Dracolich is targeting Team Dorian, but Reimu’s barrier is holding it back.

@@The Warden
- Hapshiel has not been targeted, giving him an opening to attack Hollow Isamy.
- While Lydia is taking refuge atop one of the towers, a lesser drake is targeting her, flying around the tower and trying to draw her out.

@@Dad
- Since Kratos is paralyzed with fear, Hollow Isamy has no interest in him at the moment.
- Hollow Isamy has reached out to him, asking what it cost him to defeat Byakuya.
- Killua and Gon were caught up in snow along with Amaterasu, but Hollow Isamy is ignoring them all for now.

@@Reinforce
- Darcy is safe inside the tower, although Hollow Isamy is preparing a countermeasure.
- A lesser drake attacked Chandra, flying around the tower and trying to draw her out.
- Are you still playing any of @@Tesability Black’s characters, like Jace?

@@Kingdom Xathers - All your characters are safe within their tower, although Hollow Isamy is preparing to attack the towers soon.



I'm trying to end Stage 1 of this final boss fight soon, so consider my latest post to be my penultimate post as Hollow Isamy. After one more round of attacks, we can begin Stage 2. My next boss post will help transition into the next stage.

Time for a new status update! With Protheus and Hollow Isamy both defeated, we're getting much closer to our endgame. Here's hoping we can finish this soon. Putting this more upfront so that everyone can immediately see the current battle, while the sections in spoiler tags are more for battles that are too far removed from the current battle.

[spoiler=Phantom Roxas & Merciful Idiot]1. Pathway to Remembrance - C8 [The Pathway will soon collapse]
Alpha-Romeo - At the edge of the Lake of Remembrance. @@Kingdom Xathers
Arthur, Eria, Gagagigo, Kairi, MirageGaogamon, & Kairi - Fused into an entity known as Aetos. Between Arthur singing “Famous Last Words” and Eria channeling the Lake of Remembrance, everyone poured all of their emotions into one final attack against Protheus. @@PHANTOM Roxas |RTD|
Protheus - The Twilight One seemingly vanished, leaving Protheus to battle Aetos by himself. Using his final Truth Of All Souls Upon Death, Protheus attempted to counter the Lake of Remembrance and utterly destroy Aetos. However, his final attack failed, and the lake overwhelmed him with memories and emotions. At long last, the Herald of Darkness was completely destroyed. @ |RTD|

4. The Door of Origin

[spoiler=The Forgotten Forest]End of Stage 1
Hollow Isamy - Bombarded on all sides with even Gula Dracolich being destroyed by the combined efforts of Butlerok, Rhadamanthys, and Lydia, Hollow Isamy was seemingly destroyed by the Nameless Girl. Just barely clinging to existence, Isamy reached out to Nero, manipulating him into releasing her heart. Nero agreed, but in the process, split Isamy in two, creating a Heartless and Nobody. The Forgotten Forest collapsed in on itself as everyone was pulled into new areas echoing the Pathway to Truth. @

Neos - Possibly withdrawn? @@Tesability Black

Hey everyone, guess what? We are officially back in business!

Although we didn't intend it at first, we ended up taking a half-year break. And quite honestly? I feel like my mind really needed it, because I feel a lot more energized now. I hope you guys feel similarly, and I also hope we can jump into this one last time with a fresh perspective. We’re gonna do this simple, and straightforward, and most of all, fun.

As my younger, far weebier self wrote in the rules five years ago:

VII. Remember - the most important thing of all is to have fun!

 

Only one battle remains - the final form - and I’d honestly say we’re just a few pages away from the end. It’s been one heck of a journey...and personally, I’m not about to leave it here. I hope as many of ya as possible can join me in this one, last, final push!!!

Also, don’t worry if ya haven’t been keeping up with events so far. This next post ought to cover all that + wipe the slate clean! There’s also a special opportunity offered to your characters - I hope it’ll be interesting!

 


Latest post: https://forum.yugiohcardmaker.net/topic/304659-the-grand-crossover-rp-pathway-to-origin-icapps-closed-for-finale/page-121?do=findComment&comment=7133072
[spoiler=post summary (SPOILERS! READ FIRST!)]

 

  • The Nobody & Heartless Isamy battles is interrupted. Their respective worlds shatter when a strange new entity (Isabella) enters-
  • The GCRP Gang end up in oblivion, and float there awhile.
  • The GCRP Gang get to hear pieces of uh… a mysterious, otherworldly rant.

 

  • Then ITSU swoops in, saves the gang, and brings ‘em all into Epiloguous to chill.
  • Using her link to the Key, Itsu has brought out a star-wisp for each of the characters. If they embrace it, they’ll tap into their own Origin for the "Power of the Future" or the "Power of the Past".
  • Power of the Future: They can obtain all the powers + capabilities of the future self they’d grow up to be (without memories, only glimpses). Feel free to be creative about this!
  • Power of the Past: They can regain long-lost powers from their past self, which would help if the character has ever been nerfed at some point. If this is more appropriate for them, go for it!

 

  • Needless to say, it’s the final break. Whether you have any lingering plot questions you wish to ask Itsu, or whether you would like to converse with the rest of the cast & wrap anything up… this is it. Now’s your last chance. Let's make this a fantastic ending.

FINAL FORM BOSS POST: https://neocardmaker.com/forum/index.php?/topic/167-the-grand-crossover-rp-pathway-to-origin-icpg-16apps-closed-for-finale/&page=2

 

[spoiler=Post Summary (spoilers, recommend reading above first!)]

  • GCRP Gang got taken from the boss battle and brought to "Epiloguous" by Itsu Fudo. Using her link to the Key, she gave everyone an opportunity to get a power-up by tapping into their own Origin.
  • Power of the Future: They can obtain all the powers + capabilities of the future self they’d grow up to be (without memories, only glimpses). Feel free to be creative about this!
  • Power of the Past: They can regain long-lost powers from their past self, which would help if the character has ever been nerfed at some point. If this is more appropriate for them, go for it!
  • Afterwards Itsu gave an rundown on how to beat the now-whole Isamy Maximus: Destroy her soul (in her true from, she can be killed for good) or change her mind (making her mortal again).
  • Itsu also warned, if they win, they'll need to pick someone to use the Door of Origin.
  • Then Itsu used up the last of her energy, sending everyone back.

  • Upon returning to the Door of Origin, Isamy Maximus greeted the GCRP Gang. Apparently she's now come up with a more specific idea about happily ever afters, namely "killing everyone in the multiverse". Sounds reasonable.
  • Then, at last... Isamy assumed her final form. Her true form. Omnibound Immortal IZANAMI.
  • IZANAMI has the power of 'Void Inclusion', invoking the powers of any deceased GCRP characters once only.
  • The Door of Origin realm has been turned into Origin Cosmos. The main platform got shattered into seven pieces, IZANAMI split herself into seven as well, and now everyone has been separated into seven user-specific groups... ready to make one last stand!!!

 

 

Also, the Application List on Page 1 has been updated, to accurately reflect all living and deceased characters. This may be relevant for the final battle, so refer back to it whenever you like.

 

 


 

 

If you've been paying attention to either Skype or Discord chat, y'all know what this is. As is the celebration of our sixth and final GCRP Anniversary, let's keep this as simple as possible! From here on, it's gonna be arranging Individual Collabs with you guys now. I'll be contacting each of you guys to discuss this further; this way of doing things should theoretically enable us to reach our Epilogue with just two more posts. ("Post 1: Collab Battle" and "Post 2: Final Attack")

 

If you guys have any questions or if there's any weirdness/formatting issues within the post, feel free to let me know! In any case, this is the final stretch... The absolute final stretch at last, at long long long looonnnnnggggg hecking last, so with all limiters removed, don't be afraid to have some long-awaited fun!

 

((apologies for any redundancy, just putting all the necessary info here as well for public access))
