This is a crossover Urban Fantasy RPG containing characters from the Nasuverse and many other universes as well, but as long as it fits into an Urban Fantasy section.

What is Urban Fantasy you ask? Well it is rather awesome, but its fantasy takes place in an "Urban" environment such as a city. Think along the lines of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Jim Butcher's The Dresden Files and Fate and Tsukhime are actually classified as Urban Fantasy too.

Also, I would ask no Aliens. I want this to be more supernatural than science bent.

The Basic Story is this: For some reason a sort of Nexus City (we will need a name for it) has popped up in a pocket dimension, pulling things from other worlds randomly around with it. In this city you can see the Statue of Liberty at the bay, but in the center of the city is Tokyo Tower. The City is a huge, sprawling metropolis. Like all cities it also has its dark underbelly as well. Think of the City as the obese child of Metropolis and Gotham and you'd be half way there.

The City is full of factions and alliances of its own. Normal people are sort of aware of the supernatural goings on in the city but they don't speak of them. Mainly because they don't have the means to deal with magic users, vampires, werewolves, Servants, and the like. They try to go on with normal life as much as possible. Business is thriving in The City, the economy is good, and there aren't that many homeless people out there (they've gotten eaten).

Now, your character(s) have gotten pulled into this vast, dark city and are forced to survive. There are those who want to help you. There are others who would want to use and abuse you. There are others that would simply eat your face.

At the time, there is no "Big Bad" in this RPG except maybe the City itself. This is about survival and building a life. Now there will be fights. A lot of the members of the supernatural community are either ancient warriors or predators there will be combat.

I want this to be an ongoing RP, and this is the first RP I've ran. Character deaths will by the character's player. If you want your character to die, that's fine, but I want this RP to be about interaction, world building, and characterization.

Rules

1.) Treat Other Players With Respect.

2.) Thou Shall Not Meta Game Or Godmode. If you have knowledge that your character could not possibly have, don't give it to them without a reasonable explanation. There will not be any Godmoding here either. You will get smote, and smote hard.

Also, do not control another person's character. This means if you say, "Character X punched Character B." You would stop right there and give the other player time to respond. DO NOT say, "Character X punched Character B, and Character B went down like the little bitch he is." You give the other player a chance to respond. Hell, Character B could be a master martial artist who could block the punch and pull the other character in an arm lock in retaliation while Character X is just some Normal Dude.

This also means that you cannot kill off another person's character without their expressed permission.  If I find out that anyone kills off anyone that wasn't suppose to die I am within my rights, as GM, to either penalize you, throw you out of the game, or remove of one of your characters out of the game as I see fit.

3.) Show, Don't Tell. Or rather demonstrate, don't explain.
Some times info dumps are needed, but if your character is a smart ass bad ass, show them being a smart ass bad ass. Don't just say they are, back up your claims, and that also means no having other characters who don't know the one character suddenly talk about your character being the smart bad ass without reason to do so. I want this to be a fairly well written RPG.

4.) Give other players time to respond. Now sometimes two players will go on a tangent with themselves. It's expected and can be fun, and if their interaction is separate from most everyone its fine. Plus it would be expected in a love scene between two characters. Now if there is an event and other people are trying to catch up slow down. Like if a group of players are fighting something, and one of them has trouble catching up, give them time to respond.

However if a character does not reply within a 24 hour period, I apologize, but we will be forced to move without them. Don't worry, we won't kill your character and we'll say they did something neat during the conflict so they're not a mook.

5.) This is an Adult RP. Adult things will happen, such as relationships and sex. There will be erotic content in this RP. If you're not comfortable with that, do not join or just say so and anything that could happen with your characters will happen "off screen".

6.) Nine Characters are Allowed Per Player. Character cap was upped.  I still may allow more later.

7.) Since this is a Multi-Dimensional RP, multiple versions of one character will be allowed, but only one per player and only three versions of one character allowed at a time. So that means Player C can play as Mind of Steel Shirou where everything went Grimderp and he let Rin kill Sakura, but that is the only version of Shirou he can play. Player A can play Fate Shirou who is following his dream. Player B can play Heaven's Feel Normal End Shirou who is Sakura's house husband. For the purposes of this RP Emiya Shirou and EMIYA Archer are separate characters. So there can be three Shirous and three Archers.


8.) No Aliens. Batman and Wonder Woman are fine. The Martian Manhunter and Superman are not. Or rather Arcueid and Alucard (both Castlevanyia and Hellsing versions) are fine, but most of the Cast of Dragonball Z is out. Partially because I want the level of tech in this RP to be about what it is now for ease and two I don't like vampires and aliens mixing. Too weird.

As for the scale, I think the Alphabetical scale from FSN would work. And there would be other abilities such as Regeneration, Telepathy etc to add if your character needs it.

So this would be the sign up and discussion thread as well. I'll have the Character Sheet and actual RP threads up in their section shortly.

Well, I'm definitely interested in this. I'm going to reserve a Sakura, a Shirou and a Rider for now, along with a couple of OCs. I'll post the profiles later, when I've written them properly.

It's the same characters as I used on the old forum, but I need to get their character sheets together first.

Reserving Archer and Hakuno-chan for myself, though I'm not sure who else I'm going to take just yet. Looking forward to this though~  ;D

Besides running the forum, I can provide avatars for people as well~
This is my mod voice. ...Most of the time anyway.

Hmm... reminds me that I need to be more active in this forum, and that I need to join the RP for once, or something.

Yeah, I'll be joining this properly, at least this time.

OK, I've posted my second character, which is Sakura and Shirou's youngest son. Any comments would be appreciated.

In what way do you mean?

If you look at how magi work in FSN, they do seem to be powerful at a rather young age. Rin was able to fight to some extent even at the age of five. So, I don't think having an eleven-year-old who is the child of a very powerful magus and who has someone who is well on her way to becoming a True Magician helping train him be capable of fighting to the extent Kiyoshi can is unreasonable.

If you mean his stats, then I'm defining them in comparison to the average 11-year-old. Otherwise he would obviously have all rank D and E, and that wouldn't be very informative.

Yes, and? Rin certainly is, and she will be around pretty often (if not outright living with them, I'm not 100% sure on that yet). She's not going to be living in London in this, not any more.

I assume you mean Rin :P

If so, not really, no, but she and Sakura are both smart enough to help him understand it, and what he does with it isn't that advanced.

Wait...if I remember correctly, Rin couldn't even make it past Caster's familiar in the novel before having to be rescued by Kariya. Even in the anime she didn't do much; all she accomplished was repeat her training blunder to overload Uryuu's charm, before getting cornered by the aforementioned familiar. Rin had potential, but she wasn't exactly skillful at that age (she was still in training, after all).

Yes, but Rin was six at that time, Kiyoshi is 12. There is a massive difference in competency between a six-year-old and a 12-year-old.

I was referring to this. You also managed to age them both up. :P
I'm also of the idea that after HF, Sakura and Shirou would try to live a normal life, rather than train their kids like magi would do. Especially after their experiences with magi. So, having that amount of skill at that age is a bit jarring.

I did say "to some extent"....

Lol, yeah, I got Rin wrong the first time and Kiyoshi wrong the second time....

I don't think they have much of a choice in the matter. Sakura's sister is close to being a true magus and they have a magical familiar. They can't hide magic from their kids for any significant period, and Sakura isn't the sort of person to stop them doing something they want to do. Plus, they do need to be able to defend theirselves sometimes, and Sakura would rather give them the tools to do so.

Not all of Sakura's kids are mages, though, one of them is living a normal life. Ultimately it is their choice. But, Sakura and Shirou would want them to be able to make that choice for theirselves, and to be honest to them about their abilities.

However, they are certainly not normal magi. They would be closer to what Shirou is pre-FSN. A magic user, without all the Association bullshit. That isn't something which really causes them any harm, it's not fundamentally any different from learning a martial art.
