Assault On Aincrad
TL;DR? Feel free to skip to the bottom and read the Summary.


Game Info


In 2022, a virtual reality massively multiplayer online role-playing game (VRMMORPG) called Sword Art Online (SAO) is released. With the NerveGear, a helmet that stimulates the user's five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds. Both the game and the NerveGear were created by Akihiko Kayaba, a man of genius level intellect.

On launch day, 10,000 players logged into SAO's mainframe cyberspace for the first time, only to discover that they were unable to log out. Kayaba appeared and told the players that they must beat all 100 floors of Aincrad, a steel castle which is the setting of SAO, if they wish to be free. He also stated that those who suffer in-game deaths or have the NerveGear forcibly removed out-of-game will suffer real-life death which, in turn, caused widespread panic among the game's 10,000 players.

This game will start near the beginning, just a month or so after the launch day. Characters from the show and light novels will not be present, so we can avoid continuity errors. Players will start at level ten and will begin the game attending a strategy meeting regarding a raid on the First Floor Boss. I have labeled this game as Semi-Freeform because there are some stats and skills that I will be keeping track of.  That said, there are no dice rolls, number crunching or any extensive list of system rules that the players must adhere to. Rather, I and any future GM(s) will take care of that aspect of the game behind the scenes while the players focus on their writing, in hopes of making the game progress as fluidly as possible.

Although the general aesthetic and setup of this game is based heavily on Sword Art Online (the anime), I have made several tweaks and have borrowed ideas from other works of fiction such as Log Horizon, Infinite Dendrogram, Grimgar Of Fantasy And Ash, Goblin Slayer, Danmachi, Bofuri and quite a few other animes, as well as modern day mmorpg's for inspiration in quests, characters and even game mechanics. The game will have plenty of similarities to the original, but also plenty of new content to keep things interesting and, hopefully, more fun overall. Some new aspects include Mounts, Player Titles, Magic, Dynamic Quests, Dynamic NPC's, NPC Companions, wild monster taming, several new playable races, many new ideas for the 100 floors and a PVP arena where 1 on 1 duels and even Guild Wars will be hosted. I've included a lot of these things to give the game that mmorpg feel that SAO never really had- at least in my opinion.


Summary: I would classify this game as a mostly-freeform, gm-lead story with some sandbox elements, based in the world of Sword Art Online (with some changes). Players will be able to do as they wish for the most part, but there is a set plot that will be followed as the game progresses. I've taken elements from several sources in an attempt to -hopefully- recreate the feeling of an rpg, or an mmorpg, in Play-By-Post format, to fit the stuck-in-a-high-fantasy-game concept that this game is based on.

NOTE: If you are interested in the concept but have questions, feel free to message me in-game. Please, do not post here. I will not be checking this thread regularly, except to Bump it when needed.

Assault On Aincrad

Update


The cast has just reached the second floor of Aincrad, opening another world for them to explore, new monsters to hunt, new characters to meet, new quests to be taken on, etc. It's the perfect time to introduce some new players.

I'll be accepting two new players for sure, but no more than three, depending on whose concepts interest me most.

If you're interested but have questions, feel free to contact me in game. Otherwise, you're more than welcome to fill out an rtj.

I'll be accepting between 2-4 new players, bumping the cast up to 10 or a max of 12 for the time being.

The cast has reached level 25 and they are currently on Floor 2, so that's what level your character will be starting at. Make sure to take that into account, when considering a character concept.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have about the level up or character creation process in pm. It can certainly be a pain having to level up so many times at once, and I'm well aware of that fact. So, I'll do my best to help the process go smoothly.
