INFINTUM UNIVERSALIS

INFINITUM UNIVERSALIS



The desire to fly, to explore is something that has been handed down from our ancient ancestors... who would look enviously on the birds soaring effortlessly and freely through the infinite highway of the sky. But what those who peered deeper would notice, beyond the sky.... there lies a sea, one vast and endless. Filled with the possibility of adventure, story and a never ending amount of infinite possibilities.

But it is up to you, to find them. To forge your own adventures, to meet new civilizations, and explore the vast and empty unknown of reaches of space. Visit planets, galaxies, forge empires and coalitions. Discover new, and exciting things.

Infinite, Endless, it is a infinite Universe indeed.

Your adventure starts here, as all do. Humble Beginnings my young adventures, what will you find?





HUMBLE BEGINNINGS

Most role plays have two separate stages of a story line. You have it, or you do not. The question is, does IU have a storyline? Yes, and no. I put a lot of thought to this, brainstormed many ideas and even garnered some help along the way of people who wanted to pitch into to make a fully fleshed out plot. There is in fact a story, and it's got a pretty set in stone plot. Does that mean you can deviate from it? Of course, you're not on anyone's time table but yours. However there are some variables in it that are set in stone, and no matter how much you argue they're not going to change... Is it worth it to play through it though...I'd give you a big yes, because it's a great piece of work that is made from some great minds.

As for why it's a yes or no...the story will ramp up slowly, and at first it will be just a few foreshadowing, some I may put into myself or my posts. Others if you request you may foreshadow to and I'll work with you. (I'm only a telegram away, I don't bite. I'm serious) But there will come a zenith point where the roleplay story will dominate a majority of the universe laid out before you. If you don't like a story....either ride it out or just stay away from those participating in it until it's over. But as for this universe...what the story says is canon for this roleplay series, you may carry it outside if you wish or, wish to keep it here.

The story itself is something of a Space Opera, you can see where it's borrowed a lot from Lovercraftian, or the fear of the in-comprehensible unknown. There are things that will be part of the story that you just...can't explain that are there for a good story. You're probably going to be on the loosing end a lot during it, but just know. We're not going to kill anyone, or destroy the universe. It's part of the story that's been laid out. Who knows, you might have some fun! If you are interested in being one of the few who want to help out with the story? By all means telegram me.

Post story, it's a free world as it will be for a majority of the role play. Which will be split up into three threads, or it's planned to. You are humans and not robots, I can pre-plan for everything I have to expect things to not go as planned. The first should be the introductory period, ever five pages or so, I may skip ahead some time to get some development going. (This is subject to heavy change) The second will be the bulk of the story I explained above, and the last...is just one really long epilogue.





DA LAWS

Ah, everyone's favorite thing about...everything. Rules, rules and what was that? More rules. I'm not going to really state out the regular ship of the mill laws that everyone knows, a majority of you are experienced I'd hope. But there are some laws that due to the nature of this roleplay need to be told.

I understand everyone's passion for cool, amazing feats of engineering. Some of us get pretty detailed in what we make, I myself have a google doc describing one soldier that is fifteen pages long. (I know, little overkill). But I'm not going to force you to explain how every single thing you make works. But I do expect you to keep things reasonable, and understand that people who tend to explain their things better tend to be well... better suited in their capabilities. If you want laser swords, go wild. But let's keep the flying nacho space monsters out of here. Want a crystal that generates infinite power? Well, that's a story for another day.


You'd be surprised I have to say this one again, it's so important it gets it's own box. Look at you story rule, you're going places! Now, for the story I will repeat myself probably redundantly. There is a story, and it's pre-planned for the most part if I haven't said this. The reason we have a story is that things that have no edge to really build off of over time, tend to die pretty fast. Besides who doesn't like to have a story where they don't know what is around that corner? Where it keeps you guessing, and keeps things interesting. Well I, and I'm sure others do. The lore of the story takes precedence over ALL of us. Me, you, even the nacho empire that spews molten cheese. (Boy I'm racking up these reference points for those who are getting them.) But after the story, and before it. You are the architects of your own story.


I hate having to make this a whole new bubble, but I do. I'm going to flat out and say this once, and only once. This is 100% non-negotiable, and I have a zero tolerance for violators. I don't care WHAT the argument is about, one bit. Don't care if I was in it while it was a debate, or it's about me. If it starts to take up more posts than it should, and seems to slowly getting more heat. I'm cutting it down with one warning, I don't want to hear any bitching because it wont change my mind. You can take it to telegram if it's that important. No one is immune to this rule, and it has no exceptions.


This rule means two things! We're equal, and we're not...head scratcher I know.

Out of the universe, we're equal. Meaning, we all have a right to be here.

In universe, remember that some nations just have been around longer, built in a different way, or are just simply larger and stronger. If you look at the world today, there are these monolithic nations that seem to tower over the smaller ones. But what does that mean for here? Well, just understand that some people just build themselves up very large, or have been around longer than you to be that large. Does that mean smaller nations are useless? Nope, in fact they fill the cracks and often have the best stories.


There are rules in here that are generally unspoken, no godmodding, powergaming, bitching and so on... I wont go into huge depth. You have the slightly less unspoken such as never force someone into something they don't want. Don't always try to be the bigshot...understand logic and so on...





DA LAWS

Personally, I've had success with this idea in the past, and other times it's gone unused. It's more of a later thing that gets used, that I will tend to flesh out more. The free quest idea, is more of a make your own mini stories for others to follow. Basically you may telegram me with a application posted below. If I accept it, it will be posted here for someone, or many to take up and play through your story. It can range from fighting pirate scums, to finding lost worlds and discovering buried secrets in a ancient tomb.

So, little update. You can post interests, make conversations and so forth.

Applications will be up tomorrow latest, the reason for the delay is a little because of the human necessity of sleep. As well as its trying to find the perfect format. Since my last rps my nation has become sort of a wictionary of offsite documents(mostly Google docs) and trying to find a way to compress all that into a reasonable size application is a problem. Although a majority of it is statistical and technical data. It's still a challenge none the less.


EDIT: I am aware of the delay, I'm working on applications this moment.

Interested.

Would like to have an Interstellar Circus/Trade Mission.
The ship would show the flora and fauna of it's home world and arrange shipments of orders of plants and animals.

Something in that direction, with some anti-Pope stuff hidden in since he claims to be a new Ecumenical Patriarch.

That's why I don't like heresies. They need to be burned.

Sorry for the massive delay guys! I have the apps finished, and am ready to pop those suckers in their rightful place.


The only thing I ask is that we spread the interest around a little so I have a reason to put them in.

No re-upload needed, I'll just wait out in here and let it gain traction.

SPECIES NAME]
SPECIES TITLE: The Old Ones
SPECIES NAME: Ainarphem
APPEARANCE: Various, typically appear as human form or slight variation.
DESCRIPTION: Ainarphem are truly amorphous and much like Higgs particles they can become any element in the periodic table among others.
=========================================================
HEIGHT: Varies, for example Zeus may take the form roughly the size of the RL Empire State Building, but normally is roughly the size of a tall Human.
WEIGHT: Again various
BASE COMPOSITE ELEMENT: Not set.
LIFE SPAN: Ainarphem age differently and operate on a different standard of what is "time". So some are in effect immortal in terms of longevity much like certain species of jellyfish
RESPIRATORY GAS: N/A
BIOLOGY Technically Ainarphem are close to being amorphous energy (pure energy doesn't exist) or shifting energy due to the fact they may rapidly change their biological or physical make up at will. Even copying those of other species for whatever purpose by physically touching them.
NATURAL ABILITIES: Able to 'mimic' other species. Ability to consciously manipulate slipspace and electrons.
SPECIES TYPE: ???
=========================================================
INTELLIGENCE: Varies from average to extremely high
AGGRESSIVENESS LEVEL Traditionally neutral but depending on personal tastes they may vary.
UNITY LEVEL: Unified under the Governance of the Valaphem Council, otherwise no other nation-state exists.
COMMON TRAITS: Biological immortality. Birth achieved through two persons unifying their energies (can be physically represented as sex) to form another unique being.
=========================================================
COMMON DEFECTS: Can suffer from Amnesia if kept comatose. This is due to their molecules being rigid for far to long and in essence their mind locks up.
UNCOMMON DEFECTS: Slipspace dementia.
COMMON DISEASES: May suffer diseases of mimic'd species.
UNCOMMON DISEASES: The Curse of Decay, and usually brought on by prolonged stay in the Nether.
=========================================================
INFLUENCE: Truly not much. They've constructed the Andromeda Galaxy (supposedly) and parts of the Milky Way (supposedly) but otherwise do not govern any territory in the traditional sense beyond the world of Aeternia.
POPULATION PERCENTAGE: 100% however one may become an Ainarphem
COMMON OCCUPATIONS: Various, anything fro ma scribe to a warrior.
UNCOMMON OCCUPATIONS: Valaphem.
