Did you really think I could sit this one out? Hello, again, YCM. My name, as some of you oh so cleverly figured out long ago, is Mauvache. I have come here once more to present to you an opportunity. A chance for a rather unusual, and, I expect, entertaining Role-play. I come from a different world, nay, dimension, than you all are used to. It's a world torn asunder by war after war. One that entertainment is not just a luxury but a necessity to keep the people from despairing.
And that's where I come in. Don't worry about my actions some of you have witnessed here. I assure you I am here for the sole purpose of entertaining OTHERS. I have the distinct honor of owning a most extravagant arena. One with battlefields that can be virtually, literally, anything. You, or rather your characters, will face off in battles for the entertainment of the masses. You will earn points, have legendary battles, and use said points to both pay for your food, lodgings (including ability to customize them!), and many various prizes and rewards.
But, you may ask, what kind of characters will you have? Well, that's where the real fun starts. You won't be creating new characters, nor will you have characters from my own world. No, you will use RP characters you already created. They will be transported, at a point in their timeline you may choose, to my world to take part in this game. Of course, changes may be made to make them more...suitable for the level of combat we expect here. And that's just the tip of the iceberg. You will have many events, and activities, outside of battle. And the focus will be on your characters and their interactions.
But that's neither here nor there. This is only an Interest Check, don't get ahead of yourself, there's a time and place for everything.
You may wonder who, exactly, I am. And how I, specifically, am able to bring people from different worlds together for this game.
To that I say...That's the mystery, isn't it?
And now time for the casting call!
That’s the main idea, at least. In reality it’s much simpler. You will be playing characters and interacting within a world that they know nothing about. Talk with NPCs, battle against each other and in special events, and just develop your character in general.
The Arena is where your characters work and the Apartments are where they live.
Alternatively they may put themselves on the list for the day’s random battles and, every hour, they will be set up with a random opponent from the list.
Fighters won’t get to choose the battlefields at first, as they all are random, but, as the fighters experience new battlefields they will, if both sides agree, be able to choose the battlefields they already fought in.
As to the combat itself. Each fighter has 1000 HP and attacks do varying damage. You can either agree on damage attack by attack, or after a post, or however you feel comfortable. Alternatively you can have me decide how much damage is dealt by each attack. For reference an average punch would do between 1-10 HP of damage. Once a fighter reaches 0 HP the battle ends.
There will be an option, when they become available, for fighters to equip a single “Ally Summon” (think Assist Trophy) for their battle.
Damage dealt during these battles are virtual. However it’s still possible to sustain injures if not careful.
How I expect the PvP to go is two ways. One is post by post. It will be slower but also easier to manage as I can jump in at any point with traps, judgements, etc. Otherwise you will be allowed to collab chunks of fights. but never too much at once unless I okay it.
I do want battles to not take too long and will speed things up if it's going too slowly. Keep in mind everyone is on the same time so a single battle lasting too long can hold everyone back.
There will also be Event Matches which I run and will be post by post unless I specify otherwise. These often will involve letting you write large chunks with the result being determined by how well/interesting you wrote.
Well it’s not really that complicated. Basically fights, be it PvP or combat events, and non-combat events, will grant your character points. Which they can use for...well many things. I will give a list of examples, and some of the more important things, that I threw together.
Winning a PvP match will give 60 points. While losing one gives 10 points.

Various restaurants and shops outside of the arena/apartments have fluctuating prices. Generally restaurants go from -20 per meal to -200. Shops vary greatly depending on wares.
Other forms of entertainment also varies in prices. From comedy shows, to plays, to concerts. Generally from -50 to -500.
The above listed are only examples. Anything not listed may be asked about and a price can be given.
However there are some changes I would like.
First, do not change the character itself much. Small changes, to explain, expand, or fix issues, is fine. But the characters must be the character from the RP. Any edits must be addressed somehow. Be it different text color, underline, or a note of what changed, and so on.
If there isn’t a Powers (or similar) section, put one in, and change up the powers to fit better with the combat explained previous. If help is needed you may ask and I will try and keep a close eye on this to balance the powers across the roster.
I would like an addition to the Biography/History section that explains the events that the character went through before being taken from their world. Summary of IC events they were part of and things after the RP ended that you wish to have happened would go here. You may have them taken at any point during the RP they are from, or after, even if you have to make up information (try and keep it consistent, however).
Please also add a link to the original RP (OOC and, if not linked in the OOC, IC, please)
And there you have it folks. Go ahead and post your apps here. Any questions you may still have go ahead and ask.
Edit: To any wondering about the "Conditional". There will be 4 spots for characters that come in later. So it's okay to still post an app but know there's even less slots now and they'd have to wait if they were accepted.
