One day, not far into the future, UTAU began to disappear, Uta Utane being the first. After a few weeks from her disappearance, the vippers were disappearing as well, leaving loyal utau fans confused. Why were these characters going missing? To make matters worse, not only were the utau missing, so were the creators. Day after day, more and more UTAU and Creators were going missing, leaving only those overseas being the only ones around. The utau, by this time, had become their own entities, rather than just voice data; had become worried sick for their creators. Then, the day had come, where creators began to disappear. One creator, had realized what was happening, as they looked around their new surroundings. They were not disappearing. They were being kidnapped. The creators were being swallowed by their electronics, and were sent through the information highway, into utaforum.net; which, was nothing that it was before. It, had been flooded by viruses to the point were even the creator of the site could nothing about it. With this, the UTAU, the ones that had awakened, decided to go and save their creator from this nightmare, as their creator wanders aimlessly trying to find a way out. There are many questions to be answered: Who is doing this? Why are they doing this, and how could they stop it? Arc: Spoiler: Part 1 - Beginnings Utau! Find your creator in this mess! Or, alternatively... Creator! Find your Utau in this strange place, and fast! Spoiler: main objective Currently, Creators are still being sucked into the site. Nobody knows why, but viruses are running wild outside uta town. Your Utau, and.. well... Yourself, are not in the same area.Your utau can be running around, or have to be woken up, if you want more difficulty. The idea is to figure out your surroundings. Once some utauloids and their creators are united, the crazy stuff can start. Areas: All background Areas of each utau (at least, those who have them) seemed to to be fused inside of the virus infected utaforum,and each utau that joins, the areas to go to will increase. Spoiler: Uta town This is what is left of the original utaforum. The forum now is represented in a rather steampunkish version of a small town, with brick roads and markets. Each subforum is a different area or building in the town. It is considered a safe haven, and where UTAU that have no background usually start at. News & Updates has been transformed into the town hall, where bulletins are put up and discussed. Introductions is now the outskirts of town, which is a rather barren area, and is the entry point of the town. Forum Archives is now a library, which creators and UTAU can search up things from previous things that happened in the forum. Forum/Oekaki Questions & Feedback is now a house by the town hall, where people go for a support group. UTAU Discussion is now a small park, where people are more likely to be to talk to each other, and chat. Creativity is now a karaoke parlor, with a small gift shop, and mixing booth. Reviews and Critiques has been transformed to a opera house, with contests going on every once and awhile. Downloads is a thrift shop, with many wares to change clothing, and is complete free! mind you, this is only useful if you need a disguise. Help and advice is an information booth in the same area as the town hall, were there's a robot that will simply help with directions. If looking for a group, this will help too. Utaswap is a marketplace where UTAU can trade weapons and powers, or other things with other UTAU. Power default is not allowed to be traded, nor is creators. Characterization is now an apartment building where people may live, or simply hang out at. The arts section of the site has now turned into an otaku playground, as it has manga/manwha libraries, games, costumes, music, etc to look at, but not for sell. This place is good for the creator to brainstorm for powers for their utau. Chit-chat is now a cafe, where fresh meals and drinks are served, as well as different services required for consumers that cannot intake these. Forum games is now a circus and Random and Spam is its own district, that seems to never stay in one form. this part of town is the most dangerous, but best for practicing for protecting yourself. Spoiler: The Island of Memoirs Coy's and Chary's background area. This, is a rather large, tropical island, with hundreds of normally dangerous species of animals on the island, though seem completely tame. Coy's actual house is a castle tower, her room being at the top floor, with lab deep in the underground. In the backyard of the castle, there's a small cherry tree growing, with a small grave marked there. The island is currently getting invades with viruses, and the only part the island safe from the viruses currently is the castle grounds and the cherry tree in the backyard. Spoiler: Korean Shrine Denki's Background area. This shrine is dedicated to the great spirit Inari. Denki, was born here and is dedicated to protect Inari and the shrine's land, despite the simple fact Inari does not reside in Korea, but in Japan. The shrine, itself, is entirely overgrown by jungle flora and fungi, and is covered in vines. It, seems to reside in a vast jungle, filled with animal life, both passive and aggressive. recently, the area seem to be over run by bug-like viruses, which are gitchy by the bite of them, and can infect the utau's software. Be careful! Rules: Spoiler - If you plan to role play in this, be aware that the actual person, who you really are, is getting dragged into it as well. - You can only RP as your own utau for the current moment, or as yourself. - Vocaloids are not involved in this, as their voices are not distributed in the internet, therefore they did not become separate entity from their CD rom, and are blissfully unaware of the internet itself. - You can team up with someone else, and work in groups, but it is best recommended to work with utau and yourself. - Be aware, Virus attacks will come at random! - If an utau can find their creator, their creator can help give them 5 extra powers from the superhero wiki. Be very wary; If you get caught using a very OP power over three times, a trojan virus will infect your utau in the RP, causing it to shut down. - This means 5 extra for each utau and genderbend. - The creator (aka you) cannot learn how to manipulate data like your utau can. you're practically harmless. Though, if you can get one, you can fight with a weapon of some sort, but you need to have an utau make one for you, only if they already found their creator. - if your utau is joint created (aka has more than one creator) one can help the utau learn how to manipulate the data, the other to create weapons, or one cannot help at all, while the main owner can work with the utau. - Genderbends share the same body as the original utau, at the current moment. The trigger switch is mentioning their genderflag. - This will be a rather violent RP, and any canon romance or romance in the RP will be used against you, word of warning. - Yes, creators are allowed to blurt things out to make the utau react in hilarious ways. - and the rules will update along the way, as we get farther into the rp.
