    Welcome to... the world of gaming, where the birds can swim, where the fishes can fly, where fire freezes when touching cold water, where water burns, where the never-ending fight of good and evil, well... never ends.

    The story:
    In the land of video games, everything was fine, no wars, nothing. Only peaceful button pressing. There were the Atari, Nintendo and Sega. No one expected it. No one thought about it... Until Sega Genesis came along. It was superior to the Classical Nintendo emulation system, and so broke the rules of no overpowering before the time comes. That triggered the most famous of all video game console wars, the Bit wars.

    The Bit Wars:
    (The 4th gen console wars)
    That devastating war had taken a lot of lives of game consoles. Nintendo tried to compete, but only failed, because the Sega Genesis was too strong. Nintendo began weakening. Nintendo eventually invented the Super nintendo: The most successful console of all time. Eventually, Sega Genesis would weaken. Sega tried to keep it alive with various attachments, like the 32x and Sega CD. It was a major failure, and so Sega Genesis bit the dust. Nintendo would go out of this war as the more successful company.
    (The 5th gen console wars)
    As time was passing, Nintendo was planning on making a CD based add-on to the Super Nintendo, but that project was cancelled because of the arriving of the newer consoles. Sony didn't like the decision of Nintendo, and so made their own console for the 5th gen console wars. From it came out the famous Playstation, the first CD based system that actually was good. In the competition came in Nintendo's N64, and Sega's Saturn. Eventually, Sega would bite the dust first, and N64 because of the fact that it was only a cartridge based console, wasn't as successful as the Playstation. So, The 5th gen console wars won Sony.
    (the 6th gen console wars)
    When the 6th gen console wars came along, all hell broke lose for Sega. Sega didn't enter this one, and the Sega video game console production died off. Only Sony and Nintendo remained, everyone thought. From the ashes of Sega came Microsoft, and tried to enter the competition with Nintendo and Sony. And so, they made the first xbox, a giant videogame console, which was successful. For Sony and Nintendo came along the Playstation 2 and Gamecube, both very successful as well. But well again, the 6th gen console wars won Sony.
    (the 7th gen console wars)
    This war was the point when everything went down. The words pixel, polygon and similar disappeared. All the consoles in the 7th gen of consoles are called "next gen consoles", which basically means that Polygons are not visible anymore, and pixels probably too. Now this is where the real fight begins, not between the consoles, but between the video game characters. The Old video game characters uprise against the new ones. And basically, that's where the roleplaying begins... There begin the Video game WARS!

    Video-game Wars:
    The video game Wars start the same second the "new" games for the Next gen consoles come along. The better graphics, the cooler sound effects, the impossibly-easier control, the more-optional gameplay, everything. The games forgot about the thing that made them popular in the first place... The challenge. Now the older video game character (Basically everything before the 6th gen consoles) uprise against the newer characters. This war is still in progress.

    OOC: Ok, so... I'll make the first move.

    IC: After a long burden sleep, after heavy rains, after the mightiest of earth's rages, and even after a whole war, Plok finally can go out of his simple and pixelated house. He can finally see how the videogame world changed since the early years of the SNES/16 bit era. "No more hiding!" He told to himself, looking up to the sky, dreaming about a glorious future with loads of his own games. "I gotta make a stand and start ending this never-ending war. This is way too much out of control-ness, someone has got to balance it out."

    OOC: I'm waiting for you to post.

    *then looks around*

    "where am I? this is not destiny islands anymore..."

    IC:
    *Sky breezes. Sub-Zero woke up from his deep slumber*[​IMG]
    "What is this place?" Anywhere he is looking, there are only un-pixelated skies and land. He is not suprised. He often seen this. But this is different, this is much like another world he haven't seen.
    "Hmm, the world has changed."

    OOC: Hey Jaret, how the factions? Divide or maybe we will know friend or foe.

    OOC: In the beginning, you watch After yourself. As the game proceeds, you start making allies and foes, so is created the story..But the main enemies of your character should be either old or new characters (Depending what console you are, and what family of consoles you belong to. Nintendo is death enemies with Both Xbox and Playstation, and so is xbox with these both, playstation too... Now atari and Sega aren't foes with anyone, since their consoles are not anymore.)...Example: Right now, you're my ally, since we both are in nintendo's SNES city.

    IC: "I know a lot has changed since the Golden 16-bit era, a lot of foes will rise, a lot of friends will bite the dust. I better get going to the Forest temple, I need to get back to my earlier form." And so Plok wants to start his long journey to the highest positioned temple in the Video-game world, the Forest temple. "The fastest way there is through the Forest itself, at the foot of the temple. It will be dangerous, so I better go and find some allies that'll aid me on my way. We have to get there." So Plok goes around town searching for a long lost friend of his...

    OOC: Hideyoshi is in PS2 city, so it's not him.
    IC: He met a friend of him.
    Sub-Zero asked:"Hey, do you know how to change this fucking 16-bit appearances? I can't do almost everything in this form"
    His friend replied:"Well, i don't know. But i heard a guy named Plok is 16-bit too, and he is going to the Forest Temple. You better find him."

    "Thanks" Sub-Zero run directly to the Forest. [​IMG]
    EDIT: Using sprites isn't illegal, right?

    OOC:mad:Peper: No. :p And btw. Plok didn't go to the Forest yet.

    IC: AS Plok searches through the city, he notices some weird guy, totally sloppy animated, with a head of a worm. He thinks: "Wow. I thought my world was weird." He asks who he is, and get's an answer that he didn't expect. It was Jim Earthworm, the weirdest of all SNES characters. "Well, whatever now, I don't have time. I gotta get moving! Maybe next time, Jim." As he said that, Jim came onto him walking drunk.
    -Heeey, duuuude! Whaaat's aap? Meh you knoow who I am! I... ZzzZzzzZ.
    -Hey, Earthworm Jim, my name's Plok. What's up?
    -Plok? Didn't some guy mention you...? Yes, I heard your name. Some cold-freak was watching for you, since at hearing your name, and your destination being the Forest temple, ran off like... I dunno.
    -What? Icy guy... Well, thanks for... the information. Kinda. See y'a.
    -Ah, ah, alright... ah... see ya.
    Plok suddenly think who that guy could be... And then, Thunderstrike on his brain. He knows only 1 guy who is icy.
    -It must have been... Arthas! Yea, that must be the Cold-freak Jim was talking about!
    He runs after the guy who went to the Forest.

    IC: While running through the forest, Sub-zero stopped. 'Oh yeah, great. Where is that fucking Temple? Genius, Sub-zero. Running without asking...' Soon, he heard walking sounds and leaf flies. And he sees red small figure running in the distance. '??'

    IC: "Wait..." says plok as he notices something or someone stopping. It was a man clothed in blue. He thought how Jim told him about the icy figure, and then he realized..."This is the guy he was talking about! It's Sub-zero!". He hurries toward Sub-zero. As he came in about 5 m distance to Sub-zero. "Hi. My name's Plok. I see you're going toward the Temple, and you seem a little bit lost. If you want, I can take you with me there. Deal?"

    OOC: What'cha think about the sprites i ripped off from Zelda: Ocarina of time? Here's the running.

    IC: In the far south, Predator looks out over the landscape, from his perch high up in a tree. Without saying a word, he wonders "how did I come to this strange land?" His mind was searching, but he couldn't remember. He checks his belt, yes, he is fully equiped, ready for battle. "I must have been sent to purge this world" "I cannot fail" Looking around, he discovers a badly flickering and pixelated terrain. "I will first find out whats going on here, then I continue my mission" Then with a big (sound that a blade makes) he drew his wrist blades, and leaped off the tree.

    OOC: can I still have some abilities but not use them in combat? And will there be any other beings apart from us players? like locals or somthing?

    OOC: Nice setup Jaret. Somewhat confused over what i should actually do but..well i'll try lol

    IC: Riku wakes up and feels a throbbing feeling in his head. "Urgh how did i get knocked unconscious? Who could've done that? Why can't i remember what happened?! I remember helping Sora defeat Xemnas and after that..i can't remember...and where am i? This doesn't look like any world i've ever seen.."Riku decides that the only way he will learn what happened is to find somebody who knows him or what happened to him,and so he begins walking North in the hopes that he will find his friends and regain his memory.

    OOC: I guess you can kinda tell i'm new to this ay? Like the memory loss aspect i put in? I'm guessing Riku would be in the playstation 2 city right now? Also if it's alright i'd like to be able to use abilities outside of combat too. Thought of another ability that could be used in or out of combat,called dark shield(Riku uses the power of darkness to block attacks for a short duration).

    IC:After mere hours of walking,Riku can suddenly see a huge building rising up in a city. There is a sign out the front of the city that says 'Playstation 2 City'.
    Riku thinks to himself "Playstation 2? Maybe my friends are inside!" before hurrying into the city.

    @Wigglz, Hey, do not double post and double move. Merge and delete.
