The namesake of our game, Alters are extremely rare enchantments that not only boost the power of our character dramatically, they also alter the appearance of your character while maintaining certain features to compliment your unique customization.  

Though one might think that our Living Environment system is what we are most proud of, or how players can literally feel what happens to their characters with our revolutionary VR technology, our pride and joy is the Alter mechanic.

In essence, based on your customization preferences and record for your character as well as the class and profession you select, the Alter will generate itself of the game engine's volition. Will it be beastly? Grotesque? Beautiful? Scary? The only way to know is to equip the skill.

Once collected, the Alter Awakening item can be stored in your inventory, bank, traded or sold to other players, but once used, it becomes a permanent skill for your character and as such can not be changed, removed or replaced.

Alter forms can be activated once every twenty-four hours (meaning a twenty-four hour cooldown for the skill) and the form is held for up to twenty minutes after activation, unless cancelled by the user. 

Alter forms power is scaled based on your character level, while it enhances your character's base stats by a dramatic margin, it is still limited by the power of your character, the higher your level, the stronger your Alter. In addition, Alters also have unique skills and attacks based on your class and profession, what they are is a mystery even to us! 

All Alter form's skills include a single skill that can be used once while in Alter form, which we consider an "ultimate" type attack with outstanding power or effect.

Alters can only be equipped by characters above level 15, which means yes, a premium subscription is required with the level cap currently being 40. 

Currently, Alters are dropped by event encounter raids at a rate of 0.2%. The only Alters currently in game are those that are used by NexTech Admin characters, will you be the first to release your Alter?

      Now would be a good time to start discussing events. Obviously I have a few in mind, but let's toss around some ideas for things to be happening around the town.

      I'm a simple kinda guy with simple expectations and requirements for anyone who I role play with, especially in groups. 
      - I'll say up front, this role play is gonna be what you make it. Want to have a fun night for your character while others try to survive until sunrise against ghouls and goblins? Great! Wanna get corn syrup everywhere while others are at a friend's Halloween party throwing down candy corn shots? Awesome. Everyone's Halloween is different anyways, if you want to participate in what I or another member orchestrate, have a blast. Wanna do your own thing? Do it.
      - I don't believe in the term "advanced" or "expert" when it comes to my role plays. I've had wonderful partners who has some longer responses, some shorter responses but were a joy to play with. I, myself, love detail and I'm guilty of writing the occasional novel in a role play when my imagination runs wild, but I don't want post length to intimidate anyone. In all my years role playing, "advanced" just means "more words", even if it's all pointless filler or repeating things in different ways to make a post longer. More words =/= better role play. Anyone can join, all I ask is that you know what you're doing and can form proper sentence structure.
      - Do what you will with your characters, but I like to go by the logic that my characters are never really safe. Choices made with other characters can alter their fates. I'm known elsewhere for being bad to my characters and in many cases, there are fatalities. Food for thought.
      - Sexy time - Sex is a horror staple and obviously a big thing on this site, so go to bone town. Some of y'alls are into your characters getting humped by monsters. Go for it. Some aren't. You don't have to, that's not what this role play was made for but you can do what you want. I expect you all to coordinate what will happen between who amongst yourselves and I'm no exception to this rule. HOWEVER I don't want to see this role play become nothing but steamy scenes. You can make a thread separately if your characters are in a private place if you want.
      - Player characters are not to be killed without that player's agreement. I shouldn't have to have side conversations about this. Those posts will be ignored and after one warning, ya done.
      - More specific rules for characters will be added in the character information section which is yet to be made, for specifics on characters, see that section when it's up.
      - I encourage new ideas! Don't make up a thread or location without running it by me, so I can keep track of what's haopening, mostly, but if you have an idea for a story, monster or place where something is happening, run it by me and we'll make it work.

      I love Autumn. I love everything surrounding the season. The not warm, not cold breezes. The scents of pumpkin, fire and marshmallow that float through the air. The cheesy horror songs and movie marathons. Most of all, I fucking love Halloween. Naturally, in celebration of the rapidly approaching spooky time, I wanted to do a role play to share the spirit.
      Initially, based on the best kinds of Halloween movies, I wanted this to be an "Anthology" role play, or, essentially, various smaller, self contained role plays that all happen on the same night, in the same town, with the potential to cross over with one another and intersect stories, whether they be camp or serious, bloody or funny. The idea of characters from separate stories bumping into each other has always had it's draw for me.
      However, looking at this realistically, the limited market for spooky role plays, the varying imagination scales and attention spans of dreamers would clash and things would fall apart in that sort of format, much to my dismay, so instead it will be one bonkers story with various locations. I wanted everything to be evident, all the Halloween and horror cliches, representation for classic activities, the works, and also pay homage to a lot of my favorite creature features.
      More to come, but feel free to throw in your two cents.

      When you find out your punk ass software analyst starts a pop up event after you specifically tell her not to fucking do that.
