Community Discussion - Plot Time

Alright so plot time for everyone, that "Succession" arc that was talked about the past few hundred pinned posts is kicking off. With it the second canonical arc to Akasha's well, lore. So we have that going for us.

In any case, this post is to simply explain the plot and answer questions. That being because I'm sure you all have many and potentially had a thing or so go over your head / maybe you didn't read up on the lore too much and went with what you needed.

Also the last pinned post will be linked below.

In short, a mysterious individual has given the message that Akasha can be or will be conquered in a short amount of time. By who or what outside forces is genuinely unknown to the masses IC, but what was proposed is that there is a possibility for others to become the Owner of the Akashic Records and potentially rule over the Akashic Stratum. The reason why one would want another to become "Owner" is simple: there is none upon that Throne. There is no true being that watches over the Records and controls Akasha as what it's truly meant to be. If one were to seize the Akashic Records and become its "Owner" they could model the realm based on their own design, have slight power over creation and a genuine sense of "Ascension".

However, there is a catch. There are "six" Administrative Authorities that one most claim before they can move onward onto claiming Akasha as their own. In that same right, there are a total of five people with an Authority or more. They are: Willem (Artie), Cain (Cain Valerious), Mayu (Mayu K) and Terumi (Yuki Terumi), and lastly myself with two. One most do what they can, be it through earning via personal worth, stealing said item or even killing another for them. However, one most get into contact with the other and plan a post out for such actions as well.This can be accomplished through the OOC community for planning, through private messaging or by a simple request in our community Discord.

In order to accomplish this much more easily, as you are essentially walking into super-boss fights for the lack of a better comparison, a pact can be made with the +Akatheon in order to make this task much more easier when the profiles are posted. For a tl;dr on them, they'll simply act as summons that will support you in combat with their own strength. In order to make a pact, you'll potentially need to go through Trials in order to do so. More information will be given at a later date on how they'll go down, but again. If you want to organize an event, simply question here and we can set it up.

Now it boils down to who all is participating. That all depends on what you the player wish to do with your characters. If you don't care? More power to you, enjoy being neutral and not having a large target on your back. Of course the +Deathless will be around if you have the actual need to punch something in the face. If you'd like to sign up a faction and make a "deceleration" to participate go for it. Notify myself or another on staff and we'll add you to a list of others we are making. However, those with factions would have a much easier job in doing such a thing as this, and therefore if you want to get your friends and allies together in order to make the world in your own image, have at it. However, if you don't wish to participate, you don't have to directly but it is a community wide arc.

Furthermore, interactions will carry over from post to post. Voiding is nigh irrelevant unless you get with a moderator beforehand. In a sense, this is a conquest in which you'll be partly politically involved in with getting others to join you and your cause. Be it for some ideal or to tell everyone to sit down, shut up and be quiet, the limit is up to you. Deaths are more or less permanent however, so tread carefully.

To address another post, there is another force coming. When? Unknown, but it would be in your best interest to stay wary. In any case, the arc will evolve into more than what it seems on the surface. Have fun. Any questions, let me know below and I'll answer them. I'll provide links for the other posts as well.

While this is frankly more fact than fiction, inspiration for Galaxy Express 999 actually came from two sources.

The first being "Night on the Galactic Railroad," a classic Japanese fantasy novel of a steam locomotive running throughout the stars, by Kenji Miyazawa written around 1927, and adapted as an anime film in 1985, along with various stage musicals and plays.

It is a good read if you're into philosophical stuff like that.

[ https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Night_on_the_Galactic_Railroad ]


The second is actually from a real life steam locomotive. The number "999" upon its front were actually derived from a real life train; the New York Central and Hudson River Railroad No. 999, or as most people know, "Empire State Express No. 999".

This was a 4-4-0 steam locomotive built by the Central to haul the express during 1893. It also claimed the title as the first locomotive to ever reach the speed of 100 mph, though this has never been proven.

The 999 continued in operation until 1952, where it was finally retired from service and donated to the Chicago Museum of Science and Industry, though it did not arrive there until 1968.

((realized I forgot to add a picture, oops-))

"Yeesh, usually when I get asked questions it's in a dark room surrounded by police officers."

[The One Eyed Yakuza said offhandedly as he sat at a table, a sign beside him saying "Ask the Yakuza." He had no idea exactly why he was doing this, it was just one of those things he did on a whim.]

"Well, c'mon, kiddos, Ol' Majima'll take any questions ya have for 'im."
