Heads up! This thread is no longer in use. For those who want to continue playing, we've moved shop over to Terraria Community Forums, right here. This will remain here for reasons of posterity.
One day-you’re not quite sure when-you decide to get onto Minecraft Multiplayer and scroll your listed games, when something catches your eye-a server that seemed to just glitch in and out of existence right in front of your face. Out of curiosity, you selected it and logged into it while it was there.
The result kind of screwed with your computer’s clock a bit, setting it to sometime in Novemer, 2011, but that was practically a footnote (at the time) as you could change that whenever: You found yourself in one of the most heavily modded servers of all time! A quick look at everything told you that this place was quite unlike anything else. Your X/Y/Z coordinates told you that you were approximately 5000 in the Z direction (whichever that was). Off in the distance, you can see a beautiful and absolutely massive tree, at the absolute fringe of your view distance.
The other thing is, two figures were kind of staring each other down. Both are the basic player skins modified: One is a Steve? Skin with washed out clothes, an impressive beard, and a tattered red Minecon cape. The other is an Alex? Skin with a red shirt, red eyes, a black jacket, and a lot of bloodstains and a smirk. Both of them wore gloves: The Steve? Skinned one wore a blue glove with a lowercase gamma on it, while the Alex? Skin wore one with a golden Omega on it, as well as one with a red Alpha on the other hand. Above the head of Steve was the username Godmodder477; above the head of Alex? Was the name of UserZero.

DESTROY THE GODMODDER 0RIGINS RULES:
0: In order to ultimately win, you must do the titular and Destroy the Godmodder.
1: Godmodders can block nearly every attack, but an attack that is creative enough is bound to do damage to them. You could also counter-godmod one of his/her blocks, but if that stretches on it will become ineffective.
2: If the godmodder is damaged by something, the godmodder will do something to make sure it never works again. This is known as the Curse of Repetitiveness™. This applies most obviously to attacking the godmodder, but it also works on attempts to do anything else.
3: You don’t have to just attack the Godmodder to defeat him; you can summon Entities, Weapons, extreme attacks, and more, from almost any source you can think of. More on that is below in other sections.
4: You get two posts per round. A round is counted as a GM post that includes all the attack responses and the End-of-turn Battle, or EoTB.
5: If you only post once, your action will be considered ‘Focused’ and have much greater impact on the field. However, doing multiple actions in a single post will make every action weaker.
6: Please follow the forum rules. I mean, this should be obvious.
7: Do not argue with the GM. You can critique me and you can point out flaws and errors, but please do not argue with the GM.
8: This game is NOT a Roleplay. Hop in whenever you would feel like, there’s no need to sign up.
9: Have any questions? Ask the GM! I don't bite. Want to discuss something in private? PM me, and we'll see what's up.
10: Any post made before the EoTB is finished and announced is now null.
11: Rule 10 is unconstitutional. Ignore Rule 10.
12: You can do almost anything in this game-exceptions will be made clear as they come. Granted, most of what you'll need to do something amazing requires Great Effort and henceforth cooperation between players, so be prepared if you want to really shake up the status quo.
B: THE DUEL.
0: This game is a prequel to Destroy the Godmodder and Destroy the Godmodder 2, and it is about how the current Godmodder, Godmodder477/Richard, achieved his ultimate rank of Omega Plus from UserZero, the first Godmodder. Hence, there are four sides a player can join: Anti-Zero, the default alignment and those allied with Richard; Pro-Zero, given to those who would ally with UserZero (willingly or otherwise), and Neutral, for those not interested in either. There has also been a new faction, made to oppose both Richard and UserZero: The Gottestoters, or Godslayers (I know that's not precisely correct spelling in the translation, German-speakers).
1: The default alignment is Anti-Zero, because UserZero wants all of you kicked out of the Staying Alive club. You can join the other two, but Richard is your best bet to survive this war. Let's be clear: Yeah, she really CAN kill you.
2: Picking a side means you have to stick with it. To change sides, you have to do something sufficiently surprising. You also can't switch sides willy-nilly, as having Chronic Backstabbing Disorder wouldn't make betrayal very surprising.
3: The godmodders cannot stop you from betraying them, but they can take countermeasures.
4: The titular says to destroy the Godmodder. The question is, which godmodder? Anti-Zero players want to see UserZero destroyed, while Pro-Zero players want to see Richard destroyed. The Godslayers want BOTH of them dead. If one of those three are accomplished the game ends.
0: UserZero and Richard/Godmodder477 are not the only two godmodders, though they ARE two of the most potent. Others can and will appear, either as unfortunate independents or lackeys of UserZero.
1: Godmodders are tough customers. Their one limitation is that they cannot be healed by any player-attempted means, period. However, they are stronger and more evasive than any other type of enemy, and more unpredictable at that.
2: Richard is only so strong, but killing stronger godmodders allows him to rank up, which is kind of part of the game's plot; if he kills a godmodder who is exactly a rank above him, he will gain that godmodder’s rank. Anti-Zero players need to be on the ball on this, because…
3: If Richard ranks up, he gets 10 Max and current HP on top of more godmodding power. This is really important to keeping him alive. UserZero's veritable amounts of defense on-server means that, if Richard goes, even for a second, you are almost certainly doomed.
4: Richard and UserZero are particularly skilled/powerful godmodders. The others are nowhere near as hard to injure, but they can still be dangerous.
5: Beware! Godmodders are prone to doing INSANE maneuvers upon hitting low HP. This can run the gamut from an ultra attack to a full heal to mass summons to outright fleeing to mass brainwashing, or all of that at once, and more. Make sure you finish them off quickly!
6: Small bit of exposition for your sake: There are ten godmodding ranks plus an unofficial one. In order of weakest to strongest, the official ranks are Alpha, Alpha Plus, Beta, Beta Plus, Gamma, Gamma Plus, Delta, Delta Plus, Omega, and Omega Plus. The ranks are symbolized by a greek letter, with the regular ranks getting the lowercase letter and the Plus ranks getting the uppercase letter. This letter will be beside the godmodder's allegiance so you know what you're up against. The exception is UserZero: As the only Omega Plus godmodder in existence (right now), she has the special title of Godmodder, proper noun.
D: THE JOURNEY TO YGGDRASIL.
0: Yggdrasil is a massive tree at the center of any and every Minecraft world. No, really. It’s there. You just need to open your third eye all the way. That’s kind of hard. But in any case, UserZero has nefarious designs going on in there, secretive in nature and presumably evil in design. Anti-Zero and Godslayer Players have it as a secondary goal to get there, while Pro-Zero players want to keep them away.
1: In order to change the distance to Yggrdasil, you must do well in the battle: Every entity kill and hitpoint of damage on the Godmodders will change the distance-closer for Anti-Zero and Godslayer players, and farther for Pro-Zero players. (Well, except when you damage Richard; He’s invested all too heavily in knockback protection for that.)
2: If one side has a glaring entity advantage, they can use this to push the other side back bit-by-bit every turn. the AZ and GS sides push forwards while the PZ side pushes back, natch.
3: UserZero wasn’t lying about having a huge amount of defenses here. Aside from a wave of entities that will surely come to her aid if she is in need of them, there are a series of powerful bosses beyond all reason known as the Gatekeepers. They will block all progress towards Yggdrasil at a certain point until they are defeated. Be wary, the Gatekeepers are insanely powerful!
4: This game is about freedom and creativity, but there is a noteworthy exception: Do NOT try to skip the Gatekeepers. UserZero will react…Badly if you somehow manage it, and that's gonna be complicated no matter how you dice it anyways.
E: TERRAIN AND WEATHER.
0: As you are not on a static battlefield and you need to get somewhere while you're doing all of this fighting, this means you will inevitably traverse various locations in order to progress.
1: Yes, you can alter the general area’s terrain, either through player-induced antics or just moving the battle somewhere else. It appears that the Biome settings for this world make them somewhat small…
2: No, you cannot stay in a certain terrain if the fight moves to a different one-you must stay where the main fight is, and that will have one terrain on it. There are no zone mechanics in DTG0.
3: The various Terrains each have different effects on the battlefield and its inhabitants, and the Terrain itself is extremely varied, ranging from the tame plains biome to the extreme weirdness that are anti-gravity temples with spikes and lemonade channels.
4: Weather can also get involved, and yes, it can stack with Terrain. Most rules that apply to Terrain also apply to Weather.
5: If you want an Entity to NOT be affected by Terrain, slap on an Airborn passive! It'll nullify any terrain shenanigans, positive or negative. On the other hand, weather can still effect Airborn entities.
0: In this game, a staple mechanic is the ability to charge actions as well as do a regular action in a post. Charged actions are generally more powerful than regular ones. Summons become stronger, attacks become stronger, and so on.
1: The charge cap is 50. You can’t make the charges’ maximum value top that. Attempts to loophole this will fail-if something is charged it cannot be stronger than 50.
2: You can have three charges at once.
3: You can only raise a charge by 1 every post, unless you got assists. Trying to raise it more than one per turn will nerf it.
4: You can give out three assists per post. An assist is basically an extra plus one. You cannot assist yourself, however, only other players, and you have to specify who gets the assists (IE, +3 to Tazz; +2 to TT2K, +1 to TwinBuilder; +1 to NumberSoup, +1 to crystalcat, +1 to Tabbune).
5: Nothing and no-one can subtract or nullify your charges.
6: Spamming charges over and over again will nerf them as per the Curse of Repetitiveness™. You counter this by not spamming them.
7: You cannot ‘store’ charges for later. You must use them within three rounds after you have completed them to use them, otherwise the charge goes stale and won’t work. (If you can’t/don’t post for a turn I won’t count that turn for purposes of staleness, because that would be rude to make your charge be worthless if you’re not there.)
8: In all of their myriad forms, Charges do have a weakness: Charged attacks have a much lower chance to damage godmodders than a regular one-shot attack would.
9: In addition, every-so-often you can find Charge Tokens! Each Charge Token equates to a 10-post charge, and can be applied to whatever charge you wish! However, one charge token is one-use, can’t break the charge cap, and they aren’t very common either!
10: If anything crops up that requires Great Effort, the best way to kickstart the herculean task ahead of you is to pair up with buddies to charge up something. this can SERIOUSLY shake the status quo and get you VERY far ahead.
G: ALCHEMITER WEAPON SYSTEM
0: Returning from DTG2 is the marvelous machine known as the Alchemiter! The Alchemiter is an incredible device that allows the combination of multiple items into a singular item, without consuming anything. It holds vast creative potential.
1: The Alchemiter works in two relatively simple ways at its basic form: && and ||. && Combines two items together into a new item (IE: Spoon && Fork = Spork) , while || Takes the form of the item on the LEFT side and gives it the functions of the item on the RIGHT side (IE: Broken Glass Bottle && Steel Sword = Broken Steel Bottle).
2: You can name and describe whatever goes into and out of the Alchemiter. If it's not obvious as to what it is or fall under a non-indicative name, it might help to do this for GM convenience. However, I am obligated to give you a name and description for whatever goes in if you don't give it one.
3: The Alchemtier works on a Level system. The bigger the level, the bigger the Alchemy, but it also takes more time to make a higher-level Alchemy. An Alchemy's creation time is it's level +1 (so a Level 5 alchemy would take 6 turns to make). Unlike regular Charges, the creation of Alchemy CANNOT be boosted by assists or otherwise sped up. In addition, if an Alchemy goes over the Level cap, it can't be made. You CANNOT determine an Alchemy's level, that is strictly the GM's business. The Alchemiter's current level cap is 15.
4: The Alchemiter can be upgraded with player made modules, allowing for even more complicated Alchemies. In addition, you can upgrade the Level of the Alchemy, but you can't use Charges for that; every-so-often you will find a rare Alchemiter upgrade. They're usually hoarded by powerful beasts for whatever reason, so look for those.
5: Alchemies are fairly powerful. Each one comes with a damage bonus: +200 damage per attack per level of the Alchemy.
6: You can have three Alchemies going at the same time as three Charges. However, as described above, Alchemies cannot gain assists and must be done one post at a time.
7: I will keep a list of Alchemies available, but it should be practical to say that you should also keep a list for your own purposes. Not a hard rule, but it would be preferable to you and I.
8: You can raise the level of an Alchemy outside of the Alchemiter with charging, but you can't funnel more than 50 points of Charge into it, and the Level will NEVER breach Level 25, the maximum.
9: In case you have Alchemies from previous games: No, they are not valid. At BEST they are random pieces of flavor text that I won't heed for damage bonuses. If you want the damage bonus from an Alchemy, you have to make it yourself, in this game.
10: You can use Charges to summon Alchemies as well. Granted, because they can be assisted, a 5-post charge might not generate a level 5 Alchemy.
11: A note. The Alchemiter is a great, fantastic machine and can be used to create devastating weapons, but it is limited in scope. It ultimately cannot create anything NEW; what it can create are effectively copies of things already in existence (or things just coded into the code-based reality that is Minecraft), and while this is a surprisingly vast array of objects, there are items that the Alchemiter simply cannot make even if it would be within reason. In addition, the Alchemiter, many times, cannot create a weapon at full power. How much power an Alchemized copy has to its original varies wildly; some artifacts might be completely equivalent, but others might merely be shadows of their real selves. Mostly irrelevant for Gameplay reasons, but you might want to take this idea and run with it a little for story purposes or something.
0: Entities have been a staple of DTG games. These are, in essence, beings from any source you could feasibly grasp, with no exceptions-ranging from Pop culture to amazing literature to historical figures to your own imagination, and anything in between!
1: There are a few exceptions to the above: You can’t use stuff from other forum games as entities. A few reasons why: It’s shameless advertising for the other forum game, it won’t make sense without playing that forum game, and it makes it extremely complicated to try to use other forum games as canon in the world of DTG in general. Plus, helps you be a bit more original. Any entity which breaks this rule will be banned from existence forever.
2: Entities can be instantly summoned or charged. Godmodders can brainwash uncharged entities, but this isn’t a guarantee, especially not early on.
3: If an Entity leaves the battlefield, either through an order, death or something else, it cannot come back, ever. It is dead for good. Exceptions are extremely rare.
4: It’s important that you keep up the Entity game! The godmodders are easier to hit with an entity advantage, and if you don’t’ have enough then the godmodder (and their entities) can start causing your attacks to fail! And of course, the godmodders can summon Entities of their own, sometimes much more powerful than a regular Player could.
5: Entities can be as complicated and creative as you can think of, with whatever crazy mechanics you can slap on being legal as long as they can be understood. Complicated/creative entities are usually more powerful, in fact, but THIS refers mostly to their mechanics.
6: Creativity goes beyond the summon! If your entity’s actions are creative enough, they can get damage boosts just like players!
7: Barring unusual mechanics, Entities can only act during the EoTB, and thus can act only once per Round.
8: In addition, there are other entities that don’t belong to the standard player alignments: [H] Hostile Entities are chaotic, powerful forces that are not aligned to any side and will attack anything on the field (if this sounds like Neutral, Hostile entities will ONLY ever attack others) while [???] Unaffiliated Entities have simply chosen no stance in this war, or may be part of some mysterious new side altogether.
9: You can summon an entity of any alignment, even one opposing yours if you feel like it. Your actual alignment won't matter (though it would still be counterproductive to summon PZ entities if you are AZ). These include entity-only allegiances.
I: BOSSES AND SPOILS OF WAR.
0: Bosses are special entities, and usually cannot be summoned by players. They are MUCH stronger than regular Entities and can unleash devastating attacks! However, if they are defeated, they will damage the godmodder they are allied to! (If a Neutral boss bites it, the killer decides which godmodder gets damaged). The death of a boss is a method of damaging either godmodder 100% of the time, and the Curse of Repetetiveness™ can’t stop it as well!
1: If a boss dies, it drops a Spoil of War, given to whoever killed it.
2: A Spoil of War is a powerful artifact that can be used to turn the tide of battle! Their effects are extremely powerful. However, they all have recharge periods, where they cannot be used.
3: A Spoil of War can do anything, from straight-up damage to buffing entities to debuffing entities to healing entities to doing something insane. You get the idea.
4: Spoils of War cannot be traded except at special opportunities. They can’t be stolen either.
5: A comprehensive list of Spoils and who owns them is below, in Spoilers.
The Colegmerate: The Power Cleaner. Wielder: Bomber57.
A wooden mop that cackles with electricity. It was the mop of the late Colegmerate, but no more. Upon activation, it becomes the epicenter of a massive orb of lightning which you can then direct onto a single entity for massive damage. Cooldown: [||||]
Charles Barkley: The Zeroth Ball. Wielder: Insert_Generic_Username.
A pure-blue Basketball, made of pure Slamicite and Jamicite. its powers make it so incredible that every dribble produces substantial B-ball energies. However, Basketball is a TEAM sport, so it's best used with a team. Upon activation, the user and four other entities/players of choices can minicrit for that turn only! Cooldown: [|||||]
The Soul of the Core: Traho. Wielder: The_Topazian.
A chestplate with the image of the stars in the night sky brilliantly. It feels of unmatched gravity majjyks, and its wearer can sustain almost any blow through deflection or density...Assuming they can wear it for an extended period of time. Using this, a Player can face-tank all damage for up to 3 entities for one turn! Cooldown: [||||]
Phantom Walker: Mask of Agony. Wielder: Hezetor.
A mask worn by the late Phantom Walker, worn and torn, with black stains running down from the eyelids...Wearing this makes you feel like you're being tortured, ever so slightly. Activating this Spoil will cause you to go into a frenzy, allowing every attack you make to activate Agony stacks! Agony Stacks up to 3 times; the 1st and 2nd stack lower Damage and Defense by 10% each, while the 3rd expends them all for a massive damage attack! This lasts for 3 turns, whereupon all existing Agony Stacks will wear off. Until then, Agony Stacks do not decay. Cooldown: [|||||||]
The Chief: Decaying Heart. Wielder: crystalcat.
A greenish heart locked in a state of near-rot by various machinery dotted along it, this was ripped from the chest of the late Chief. It stinks, BAD. This spoil will temporarily change the Terrain to Decayed Land, which will cause any entity killed while it persists to turn into an allied Tombstone, which will persist until death. Decayed Land overrides any other Terrain types. Decayed Land lasts for 2 turns, whereupon it changes to Purified Land, which has no effect. Tombstones will last until death. Kills by UserZero and Richard do not create Tombstones. Cooldown: [|||||||]
Twitchy, the Hivemind Incarnate: Alchemical Symbol. Wielder: insert_generic_username.
A black symbol glowing a dim red, this ever-shifting symbol rapidly switches between every alchemical symbol ever to exist, a reminder of Twitchy's ever-changing and ever-random form and power. The use of this spoil summons a Disembodied Heart, a powerful entity that can also summon weaker entities as well as attack! It will last until killed, at which point any summonlings will also expire. The Disembodied Heart's cooldown does not resume until it's dead. Cooldown: [|||||||||| |||||||||| ||||||||||]
The Hyperstorm: Weath Ray. Wielder: battlefury13.
A sleek black, simplistic space cannon-looking thing, between its barrels lies a maelstrom of spatial energies. When fired, a cyndrilical stream of microscopic portals is ripped open, cutting through almost anything like a hot knife through butter. Upon use, this spoil will deal very high damage to a singular entity, ignoring all defensive passives it may posses, except Evasion. It has a 5% chance to do five times its total damage on hit. If the action to use it is Focused, it jumps up to 20%.
Chef-Class Imperator Titan: Cutlery of the Cooking gods. Wielder: battlefury13.
A set of cutlery, brimming with the brilliant force of the trifecta of cooking gods: Gordon Ramsay, Alton Brown, and
Emril Lagasse. They give whoever wields them an unnaturally savvy insight into all things cooking. Upon use, the wielder will create a divine feast, granting not only a moderate amount of healing to two entities, but also giving them the well-fed buff, which improves damage by 10,000 points.
…And that’s all I have in terms of rules! Now, are you ready to Destroy the Godmodder?
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
and there at once.
same as this one
Don't have one
Don't want one
Sorry, I need to claim this.
FIRST POST IS MINE! MINE! ALL MINE! *Evil laugh*
With the blinding speed of posting in under 10 minutes, I draw a very long inflatable balloon and blow it up into a large balloon giraffe. Then, holding it by its head, I use the giraffe's body to whack UserZero a bunch. Strangely, the hoofs of the balloon giraffe are actually pointed and surprisingly rigid. My balloon animals thirst for blood.
Everyone leaps to fight against UserZero, who, at this point in time and space, holds the title of the Godmodder. The battle starts at its origin point, with everyone rushing to start a fight that they dimly know will have massive repercussions. On the hill where everyone spawned, all is quiet. All except for a low whistling sound, more forceful than wind and just as ominous.
Without warning, it happens. There is a great flash of light and a circle of pure energy flashes into existence on the top of the hill, burning all of the grass off the hill in an instant, and even vaporizing dirt. The ground is charred to its stone foundations, stray fires still appearing across it. Symbols are etched around the circle of energy, standing and glowing with no visible means of support. There are twelve in all.
A figure walks out of the circle, revealing it as a portal. The light clings to the figure, and when it walks completely out of the portal, it turns to embers that linger on the ground. The figure is clad in armor, and a cape trails behind him. He holds up his hand, and the portal disappears as quickly as it arose, so fast that it's almost like it never existed at all. The twelve symbols' light fades from view, yet the symbols still exist. The figure turns back and grabs them all, walking down towards the battlefield. The fight has not yet truly begun. But it will soon.
The figure mutters under his breath, pulling off several hoods, a helmet, and a visor. His head is mismatched, with the right portion of it blackened by what looks like soot, and with the left portion of it covered with white hair. The figure's eyes are obscured with a set of glasses made from a pale-grey material. "Pickaxe. Lapis Lazuli. Broken Bow. Wineglass. Escutcheon. Demon Door. Twisted Horn. Alien Visor. Pokeball. Golden Crown. Foxtail. Blue Cross. What do they mean? These symbols are my shackles. Does the answer lie in front of me?"
Reaching into his coat, the figure pulls out a book and a pen, writing in it. After a second or two of pause, he shoves his coat back in his pocket and, once again, marches to the battlefield.
The Scribe has entered the arena.
The Journal: 1/20 ==================== [DATA ENCRYPTED]
So, here's the debut of my character, the Scribe. He's a figure in the Godmodder's backstory, and it looks like this fight will actually mark the start of the Scribe's travels with the Godmodder! They're not friends yet, but they will be soon. The charge up above, titled "The Journal", will be absolutely crucial to the plot and gameplay of the Scribe. I'll reveal data about it as it progresses.
I haven't got a whole lot of time, so a random guy shows up, he begins charging something...
A distant force begin preparing to try and tip the scales a little more drastically: 1/25
Nevermind, I'll do it now.
George wasn't sure where he was, or why he was here. He'd doubled-clicked on the Mineplex server and suddenly the glitch bar had appeared as he put his finger down, and suddenly he was receiving death threats from a random person who he had never met before.
And just after the whole thing with Project Binary was over too!
He vaguely recognized the man as the godmodder, but the godmodder was supposed to be dead, wasn't he?
George shrugged to himself and decided to just run up and punch User0.
"I mean, come on, what am I gonna do without gear?"
Two figures slowly coalesce into being on a hilltop overlooking the fight.
This is what you wanted me to see?
What's so unusual about this place, crossover events have been spiking up everywhere these days.
Look deeper. This place had no energies even implying that it would be such a place just two days ago.
I see it.
What is going on here?
I do not know.
For once my knowledge and visions offer me no information on where this conflict will lead.
Wait, look at the golden one.
Gods... How? How is that even possible?
Is he a Descendant?
He's The Epicenter.
He should not even exist.
So we watch?
Nothing more that we can do for now.
I feel... there's something wrong here.
Relax, the feeling will subside. When this much energy comes together in one place, even beings of your status, perhaps even especially beings of your status, are bound to feel uncomfortable.
The two figures, now visible as what looks like a college professor in a tweed jacket, and a shadowy, wispy figure in a purple cloak obscuring all his features, settle down and wait and watch.
Some dumb comment about how new threads taste or something.
NumberSoup has entered the server.
A Minecraftian appears on the Battlefield; his skin is unremarkable, it looks vaguely Pokémon themed, but is otherwise rather plain. On his belt are six Pokeballs, or, to be exact, six Ultraballs.
My name is Mercury, and I am here from a Pixelmon server. You all seem confused…what year is this again? I don’t think Pixelmon exists yet, at least not in this advanced form… Well, I am, after all, from the future. Enough talk, I’m a man of action.
Mercury sends out an Altaria, jumps on its back and flies towards Richard. They land next to him, and Mercury gets up to offer a handshake.
So you’re the one chosen by the Narrative; well, we all want you to win this, don’t we?
Regardless of if Richard accepts the handshake, Mercury backs slightly away from him, and suddenly yells.
Watch out behind you! Moonblast!
Mercury tries to distract Richard, while, from the front, Altaria summons a small moon, which quickly slams into Richard with the force of a… small moon. Mercury then quickly jumps back on Altaria, and they fly into the air.
That was a rhetorical question, but I’ll tell you now that the answer is no. Just as you have the support of the Narrative here, UserZero has the support of my employer, the Conflict. Not to be confused with The Employer, who is part of the Con… you’ll learn about this in the future.
Mercury then flies away from Richard, and lands on UserZero’s side of the Battlefield, but doesn’t bother to greet her, as she no doubt heard all that.
The Meaning of Life, the Universe, and Everything.
A starship suddenly warps out of nowhere, merely lurching into what appears to be this reality. Mauve plasma clinging to the hull slowly dissipates, remnants of travel through infinite pure energy. The only notable features about this ship are the white 'UASG' on the side, and the faded of archmages long forgotten in the mists of the future's past, and of ancient infidels. Immediately, the thing races toward its target.
A particular server in Universe C of the apparent Trifecta. Hah.

Suddenly, the ship begins to exude copious amounts of psionic energy oscillating primarily between red, blue, and multiple shades of violet. The psionic energy pulsates rapidly as the craft accelerates to speeds marginally exceeding that of light.
Within minutes, the destination is in sight. 0rigin Point. Immediately, the ship docks, seeming to be calibrating something of note. Moments later, what appears to be a satellite dish retracts, and a pod of some description is fired into the planet, landing without any real damage to the surface of the planet. Can't really afford to incur the wrath of the inhabitants. I am sure that this maneuver will be completely irrelevant, and nobody shall ever hear of its contents again. Fortunately, the ship's origin facility, and by extent, the laws that it follow, have been vastly changed since Erelyean times, or even Nartheonic, back on the facility's home planet. Neither of their policies would have been ideal; one due to planetary tradition, the other merely due to insanity.
The starship departs, returning to wherever it is it came from.
Some time later, another player joins the server.
That is, of course, where I come in.
As per usual for me: Anti-Zero, I'll probably end up using highly dubious methods, morally, et cetera. It should also be noted that I am not this 'Kalare Erelye' everyone will likely assume I am. For now, let's just use my username. terminalAutocrat. So, yeah. There's that.
I preface my game by drawing on whatever vast sources of energy this land contains (excluding Yggdrasil, unfortunately) to energize my brain to a point wherein my synapses are firing at around the speed of light, give or take. Utilizing this mental boost, I pull out a pack of cards.
Upon doing this, I begin to shift and shuffle the deck about almost excessively swiftly, muttering under my breath. Three minutes, forty six seconds, and nine nanoseconds pass, until I suddenly toss the deck into the air, catching every card, each of which exude a multitude of violently bright lights of an arcane nature.
I continue to carry out a variety of tricks, each of which ending with progressively greater and more attention-drawing occurrences. This continues until I manage to pique the attention of UserZero. I continue upon noting this when (or if) it occurs, beginning to perform a few of non-Euclidean nature.
The small tears into the fabric of reality are completely ignored as I continue. Then, I announce I am ready for my grand finale. Under the best of circumstances, I have managed to draw the attention of everyone within hundreds of thousands of meters. Then, I plunge my hand deep into the depths of non-Euclidean space. Bursts of liquid nox and tentacular forms seem to drip from around my hands. Suddenly, I draw my hand out, and disappear. The deck of cards just sort of splatters in UserZero's face, and she feels a pang in her back.
If she were to look around, she would note that I had just punched her, for whatever reason. That must be laughable for her. Did I honestly think that would damage her?
That's why I was wearing solid divinium gauntlets topped with spikes made of solid void.
I pull out what appears to be a weathered tome, whispering a few words to it, and marking several things down upon a blank page, most of which appear to be dimensions and material lists. Tomes of such ennui tends to do things of an unsavory nature.

Defending my castle
Hmm... so a strong force that want's us dead is being attacked by a less impressive attacker...
And yet they are of the same cult, godmodders. Although they say the enemy of my enemy is my friend, is Richard truly your friend? For he simply strives to be like Zero, to have absolute power. And absolute power corrupts absolutely...
A small man... no a dwarf comes out of the shadows. "I think I will need time to see who is truly the good guy, until then I will build up my power..." (Yes, I'm a dwarf, you see I was editing my skin while I was doing this, while I was playing dwarf fortress, and I was both watching lord of the rings and reading the hobbit on my computer and as this happened to my minecraft in the background well...)
I join as Neutral
Now, to test these new server powers:
I insta summon a slime to protect myself, plus it gives the godmodders something to train on if they get rusty, at the start of everyone needs a slime to fight
I then go away and start building a small base in the mountains (Or whatever biome we are in if that doesn't work) 1/15
I don't care what we use (alchemy or artifact) they are both fine for me
Now that that's done, I launch a pencil, but not just a normal pencil, this is the pencil of DOOM (Because that makes it much worse) at User Zero, since she is the worst threat
The lead instantly splits in two and is glued to the Zero's hands, making everything she wrights down not only create an annoying sound, but also makes it look like she's writing in 3D! This makes her so annoyed she stabs herself with it.

Light glows in a solid point... expanding to form a rune, pulsating with red light. The pulsing slows to a stop... And shatters, expanding to a vortex of darkness, spitting out someone with a dark cloak, covering their face. Two runes are etched into his hands, one of which was the same rune that spat him out. They pulsate black and purple.
Where... This is...
Bah! We just came though here! Are you... He looks around, finding no one.
Well, it should ware off soon. Looks like I am in the middle of a war, eh? Well, I heard the talking. I don't feel like dying today, looks like I'll be fighting for #447 here. One of the symbols lights up. It looks sort of like a C. It glows dark black... A strange liquid of nothingness pours from his fingertips, into a mundane splash potion.
I'm sure you will appreciate pure nothingness, Zero. He throws it at UserZero.
ERROR - USER2 NOT FOUND. LAST KNOWN LOCATION: UNIVERSAL LIMBO. WILL RESTORE CONNECTION WHEN IN VALID UNIVERSE.
By the way, thought I'd mention I'm hoping artifacts wins this one, mainly because it's a whole lot easier to have set values and specific weapons rather than some complicated forge and combination thing.

The Nether (of course!)
No, just no
Heh. This looks fun. Nice ideas, Tazz. Anyway....
Lightning strikes the battlefield, even though there is not a cloud in the sky. A lone figure stumbles out of where the lightning struck. The figure has nothing of note about his appearance, just a regular Steve skin. He turns to look at the battlefie- OH GOD WHERE ARE HIS PUPILS!?
Turns out this figure is the ruler of the end, most evil things, and rumored brother of Notch (N()t true!!), Herobrine. Or, as he likes to be referred as, The L()rd.
That tree must be here- ()h! There's Yggdrasil! But, wh() are these tw()? ... UserZer() and G()dm()dder477? Hmmm....
He walks to Richard.
Hell() Richard! I w()uld like t() make a deal with y()u. I'll lend my f()rces and p()wer t() help y()u. But, in return, y()u allow me t() use Yggdrasil f()r my ()wn purp()ses. Deal? G()()d!
Without waiting for an answer, lightning strikes the Godmodder as The L()rd walks over to the AZ crowd and joins them.

THE PROPHECY SEEMED FAR AWAY
BUT FINALLY WE'VE REACHED THE DAY
GIVE UP THE PAST, EMBRACE THE STRANGE
EVERYTHING YOU CARE ABOUT WILL CHANGE
(OOC: Looks great, Tazz! Story thing was a bit abrupt, though.)
From an unknown location, somewhere on the server, yet far from the battlefield, a call is transmitted, reaching UserZero's cell phone. She picks it up, wondering at who managed to breach everything she set up to prevent spam callers...
???: UserZero. I wish nothing more than to help you. You may consider me "The Contact." I wish to meet you, where we can discuss our plans further. Enclosed within the call, you will find an auto-duplicatortm. I must warn you, your duplicate will be teleported a ways away from the scheduled meeting place. Any damage taken by the duplicate will be taken by you as well. However, the duplicate will have your powers, and any information she gets will be given to you as well.
UserZero wonders how something can be enclosed "within a call", but she looks at the hand that wasn't holding the phone and there it is. An auto-duplicator. She uses it, and a duplicate of herself is made and is teleported far, far, far away.
The Contact: Part 1: Path of Pain:
UserZero ends up on a large dirt path in a seemingly innocuous forest. She surveys her surroundings, and sees a nearby sign:
"BEWARE OF LANDODILES"
Wondering what a "landodile" would be, UserZero sets out down the path, to meet up with The Contact. As she does so, she sees a few logs in her way. She moves to jump over them...
AND JAWS CLAMP DOWN ON HER FEET! They were landodiles, waiting for their innocent prey to try to jump over them! Their teeth are imbued with natural godmod-canceling adaptions, and are EXCEEDINGLY PAINFUL! UserZero pulls out her mangled feet, already self-restoring with godmod powers, and runs ahead! She sees more and more logs... landodiles are EVERYWHERE! As she runs by, all the landodiles get up and run after her at extremely fast speeds! Finally, she makes it to a place she thinks is safe: A river! She dives in!
As it turns out, the river is filled with normal crocodiles. And pirahnas. And swordfish, or sword-carrying fish that REALLY HATE ladies whose names start with "U".
After a short 100-mile swim through the river, UserZero finds a building with a metal door. She opens it and ducks inside, hoping it's the right building...
(To be Continued!)
(OOC: This is going to be sort of a chain attack, but more like RP-attacks-with-chronologicalness. Each post should take effect individually.)
Aayla joined the server. AZ. (I am The Flaming Toast from DTG Terraria Forums)
Aayla slams her staff into the ground, causing the sandstorm to begin whirling around her rapidly. Sandstorm damages entities lightly at the end of each turn and gives entities a 35% chance to miss. Lasts until the staff is destroyed (give it x hp) or after 3 turns.
She then inserts a Vote One! Alchemeiter! into the balot.
Eh, oop. Better just add something more touching and heartwarming as a story.
Aayla was the great-grandaughter of a Jedi who was trapped inside the poem written by a Samurai Cyborg Ninja. The poem was contained in a dream about a videogame called Stanley's Parable, but the player had never reached the poem. Aayla had long, red-orange hair, yet slightly elfish features. She was once a desert traveller transformed into a dolphin by a wicked wizard named Ben. Ben wasn't that wicked, but he enjoyed turning people into dolphins. Aayla found the magic school bus, and jumped on to go on a journey to Wonderland. In the meantime, she found that she had turned into an Earthmage from a dolphin. Lydia signalled to the driver that this was her stop and jumped through the roof of Breezehome, greeting the DragonBorn with "Still here" while he rummaged in his chest. Finally Aayla was dropped of in the server, and greeted her slight past self, before kicking them back into the desert. Then pressed the kill time continuity switch to stop any of her selves coming back from the past.

1+ to the next 3 people that +1 me or the person previous to me.
A small distortion can be seen nearby. The small warp in reality grows more severe, before an infernal sigil flashes a hot red before an intense red glow engulfs the spot the sigil appeared. The ground around the evil symbol grew twisted, the grass withering and the very soil becoming tainted. Appearing in a violent puff of smoke and fire was a well-dressed man who had a malevolent presence about him. His most interesting feature is that his head that resembles--no, is a cartoonish bomb, fuse and all. His eyes resemble goggles (minus the strap) with dark, red lens.
His name was Bomber, the CEO of an infernal corporation known as Hellco. Some call him by his more menacing title, Overfiend. Hellco. does many things, but one of its most prominent is its trading of extradimensional materials and atrifacts. These wares were typically what some might describe as "nefarious" or even "evil". They are probably correct. As for Bomber's motivations beyond profiting and keeping Hellco. afloat, those are rather mysterious.
Now, what he was doing here, of all places and times, was anyone's guess. But he knew exactly why he was here. Bomber sought to do two things: the first was he sought to ensure that Godmodder477, also known as Richard, would become The Godmodder. He didn't support him in any way, but he feared that any temporal interference would change things in unforseen ways. The second, which was probably his central goal, was to obtain power for himself. He dreamed of it, becoming more than he already is now. Artifacts from the past and whatever other shenanigans will certainly give him what he wants.
Yes, this would be most fun.
After arrival, I dust off my suit and adjusted myself, before taking a quick scan of the situation around me. I nodded, satisfied with what I saw.
"Hm, oh yes. This is it. The 0rigin Point! My work begins."
I align myself to Anti-Zero, and cast my vote for Alchemies, enjoying the wide range of what the system can potentially do.
Pulling out a Bolter, I take aim at Zero.
Pulling the trigger, I fire a salvo of bolter rounds. These rounds are incredibly deadly to the majority of mundane folk, the bullet embedding itself inside the target and then exploding violently.
Hooray, a new thread. For those who might be unfamiliar with who I am, I appeared on the tail end of the 2nd game during the last trial. I fell in love with the idea of contributing to such a large story, as (despite not being advertised as one nor initially intended to be one from what I can tell) this is, in a small way, a roleplay. I hope to flesh out more about the character of Bomber, who I have had since a small private Minecraft server amongst some of my friends where Hellco. was actually created. The concept has really stuck with me, and so I see this as a great chance for me to play with the idea and expand upon it and Bomber himself more. Anyhow, I am going to have a lot of fun doing this with the rest of you guys, and can't wait to see where the story takes us!
"Dang it, you'd think that with time travel I couldn't be late for this!"
"Now, where the heck is..."
A package slams down. On UZero's head. Ouch.
It contains...Oh dear, some BROKEN Origin Wands. That's...Not good. With their creative energies uncontained, who knows WHAT they can do?
...It appears that they can create bedrock in a 3*3 cube around their impact point.
"Hi. I'm from the future. Or something. Considering I don't actually...Ugh, this is not going to be explained right now but I am a veteran of the future fights. Don't ask. But it is vitally important that Richard wins to ensure that Richard wins here.because timeline stuff. Ugh. I hate predestination when it's not busy ensuring I don't die."

A tall, slender man wearing a trench-coat walks out of a high-tech looking door. He's very clearly a hard-boiled detective; he has the hat, keys and the raw pulchritude. He then proceed to transform his set of keys into a tommy gun! He then fires a quick volley at UserZero! Naturally, UserZero has dealt with many, many bullets from weaker godmodders, so she deflects them with her weapon of choice.
However, the bullets have a homing atribute; as they get hit away, they inherit the speed of the impact that reflected them! UserZero is then flanked by constantly speeding-up homing bullets! And if the bullets are damaged, the fragments will spin out towards UserZero as well, creating more things to deflect!
He then pulls out a kit, and starts building something... (1 / 20)
