    "Gentleman, I ask you this: When does a man die? Is it when a bullet goes through his heart? No! When he has an incurable disease? No! When he drinks a soup of deadly poison? No! A man dies when he is forgotten... I've had a wonderful life!" - Hiluluk, One Piece

    This thread will not die, for we hold it's memories in our hearts. Sure, we may not post here again, but that does not mean we do not think of it as an inspiration. We've all come so far, and I'm proud to see this day where we can hold our heads high as we leave this thread. Goodnight, Wrath of the Divine, and let you remain forever within the minds of those who loved you.

    [Amanda 'Rose']

    Unlocking the door to my apartment, I dash in after a long day of college, ready to play my most recent obsession. The computer takes nearly no time at all to turn on, then loads up the game with equal haste, as if matching my excitement. Today was the offical release, and all of the Administrators were needed online. I booted up Skype, since the Headgear had an access port for Skype and a few other programs to get into, as long as they had licenses. Slipping the Headgear on, I go through the regular activation sequence, which is just a minute or two of getting my profile data.

    No save files found. Would you like to make a new character? It said, a message appearing in front of me. I nodded, and it began to scan my body features for physical attributes and actual statistics to match up with what happened in-game. It didn't take long, and the system brought me to the Character Customization Sequence. I colored my hair red to match the name Scarlet Rose, then selected the Custom option only available for Admins. I selected my profile name and it gave me a summary of my equipment, most importantly my two pistols. With that, I was sent into the game.

    The new tutorial was much different from the previous one. It gave you a random faction, and with that a certain scenario. Mine was the Rebels, which was ironic considering I'm an Admin. The scenario was an invasion on the Omega Corps HQ, which started with using parachutes to jump out of an airplane, mixed in with some aerial combat, the demonstration of a Hack, explosive tutorial, and a bit of action. It took less than five minutes to do, which was fine with me.

    I loaded up next in Rhea Training Camp, the first tier town. I ensured that I hid my [Admin] tag, plus changed a few other settings. People were already having a blast, although I didn't see many people above level five. Maybe they hadn't figured out the missions yet, which was there loss. I opened up my Mission Menu and selected a simple one: Trust Issues.

    [Felix]

    Leaving the tavern, I decided to head back to the ship. There wasn't really anything I needed to do personally, since I had a crew member for most tasks. The Quartermaster would be resupplying on non-food related necessities, the Chef getting ingredients in bulk, basically everything was assigned to someone other than myself. I didn't use weapons, so I had no reason to sharpen a blade or get more bullets, so I just returned to the port. The ship was bustling with people running around, doing their duties, quite the formality for when we needed to resupply.

    A ways off, nearly on the horizon, I saw some Marine vessels passing by. They wouldn't hopefully notice us, but the most important part about it was where they were going. I'm no navigator, but I knew the current we were going to want to ride to get to Reverse Mountain was where they were. Any self respecting Warlord wouldn't ride with the Marines, so we would have to face off against the Admirals.

    I didn't want to doubt my crew, but I did have concerns on if we could fight them. I would definitely have to fight Kizaru, one of them was a complete mystery and the other used Sleep powers to instantly fatigue his enemies. With that in mind, would we be able to make it? It might be safer to take an alternative route and go through the Calm Belts, but last time we tried that we barely moved and were constantly attacked by Seakings. If worse comes to worse, would I be able to protect my men against three Admirals? To my knowledge, I was the only one who could use the Color of Armament Haki, and barely in fact, as I hadn't the time to train it much.

    I concentrated on my fist and it slowly became a jet black color, almost like carbon. It was slow, and if I couldn't improve, Kizaru would run circles around me. He has the body of Light. Was his fruit more powerful than mine, his Light stronger than the Sun?

    (( Approved. Just by the name/effect of your Devil Fruit and your current progress into One Piece, are you aware of the character Enel (Eneru in the English Dub) who uses the same fruit? It does contain spoilers to the plot, but here's the link to the Wiki thread on him.

    Also, for the sake of the story, I'm skipping to morning. ))

    [Felix]

    <Before Skip to Morning>

    "That was Mavis Lucifer, one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea. He's crazy strong, especially against Devil Fruit users, plus he is a master of Fishman Karate." I tell Erin, as the stars twinkle far above.

    <Morning>

    The sun finally above the horizon, I felt my strength come back, massively improving from my former state. Not only that, but Forêt Island was in sight. My nocturnal guards went into the barracks, where the majority of the crew slept, waking them up as the two guards went to bed. One by one, the sleepy men walked out onto the deck, like zombies from a horror novel.

    "Rise and shine, folks!" I shout, as I steer the boat into harbor. A few recover from their fatigue and get to work curling the sails and preparing to land. Steven went to grab his Log-Pose, but remembered he didn't need it yet.

    The Chef — Matias — started bringing out carts with breakfast on them, this morning being Cocoyashi Grain Waffles (an ingredient he had encountered in his tour of the four Blues), some berries from Little Garden, and Reverse-Mountain Salmon slices. With a little yogurt on the side, it tasted amazing, and the portions were small enough to be efficient, while large enough to give energy to a hungry pirate.

    I jumped off the side of the ship and landed on the pier, which surprised quite a few of the citizens. "We don't really mean any harm. We're just some friendly pirates offering protection." I said, with a grin. There didn't seem to be a Marine Base anywhere in sight, but the World Government was meticulous with getting a contract with most nations, including minor islands. "Hey guys, at noon we'll meet in back here. You know your jobs, so get to it!" I shouted at my ship. A few jumped off, part of the landing party, and did their tasks. Matias had landed and already raced off to the marketplace.

    What I liked to do was control information. I noticed the updated Bounty Board, with mine increasing to a huge amount, Erin's jumping quite a ways, and even Melodia getting a nice sized price on her head. A few other captains had their names listed, perhaps some targets for us to take out. With that finished, I made my way to the local tavern and started listening to some gossip. A bunch of drunken nonsense filled the air more than any good rumors, but I heard something about the Marines intending to stop the Firestar Pirates from re-entering the Grand Line.

    I wasn't able to hear who would attempt to stop us: The Admirals or the Warlords, but either way it's be fun. Our odds were a bit safer with the Warlords, and it would be a great chance to have a rematch against Lucifer.

    This is the newest and most improved version of Virtual Reality Gaming: Gun Arc: Unlocked! With a custom headset designed to give the full emergence into the game, the developers have gone wild with this game, and was tested by a crew of one hundred beta testers. Today, it is finally being released to the public! Stores are going out of stock quickly, and there's not much time left to secure your copy of this wondrous game.

    This game is nothing like any other Shoot-Em-Up, as it simulates dreams in reality rather than a distant nightmare. Don't expect another Call of Duty style game, that was exactly what our developers tried to avoid.

    With the small box the disk comes in, you dash to your computer and put in the game. However, a small booklet falls out, "Gamer's Guide to Gun Arc". You begin flipping through it's pages, reading bits of information.


    This guide has been created for new players who lack experience with Gun Arc.

    Choose the right weapon. Since this game uses your physical attributes to determine your statistics (STATS), you will need to select equipment that doesn't burden you. If you have good accuracy without any modifiers, then you might want a sniper rifle, while if you like the dependable 'Spray-n-Pray' method, try a machine gun.

    Form a Party. Not every enemy can be beaten on your own, so it's suggested you work with a close group of friends. Strangers aren't suggested for a group, as they can rob you if you aren't careful. A Party earns a higher amount of Money and Experience per kill or victory, but the divided amount is smaller. To put it otherwise, if you solo something and it gives you ten gold, then if you work in a group of two and kill it, you will have to split eighteen gold.

    Save your money. Money is extremely important, as your skills can only boost you so much. The currency is Gold Coins, with the average earning rate per kill in the Beginner Dungeon is Five Coins. Money can buy you bullets, guns, equipment, bases, and most importantly, Hacks. Enemies do not scale to level, so hunting in a higher level dungeon will give a larger reward.

    Pay attention to levels. Enemies may not scale to level, but bosses do, so they will always be a challenge. Other players, especially the Beta Testers, may have a higher level than you, so be sure to respect the higher leveled players. Equipment always has a Level Requirement, and sometimes a Level Cap, so do not buy anything you can't use, as it wouldn't be efficient.

    Turn Closed Captions on. It is not guaranteed that every player speaks a certain language, but our captions system will automatically translate for you. It is also useful for better understanding dialogue.

    Choose your Hack wisely. Certain abilities can be given from Hacks, which is useful, but don't get something just for fun. You should only carry one Hack on you at a time, as more than that is unnecessary.




    In this game, there are two major differences from other Gun related games: Skills and Hacks.

    Skills are unlockable traits you can give to your character. There is a Skill Tree system depending on your character design, but it does not change from character to character like the previous edition of Gun Arc, unless you have connections to the Developers or Administration, which few known players do. They can give you a burst of speed after a kill, perhaps make your reloading time a bit faster. All of these are passive, meaning they activate on their own. The Skill Tree starts with a few basic skills, but the rest is decided by your Starting Gun. Once chosen, it cannot be changed.

    Hacks are devices used by your character to improve their abilities with a special talent. The most common Hack is Speed, a basic Hack that makes you run twenty percent faster for ten seconds, and it is given to all starting characters. Stronger Hack Effects can be found as you progress, such as Speed becoming fifty percent or even one hundred percent faster for a longer duration. They are broken down into Five Tiers: Common (White), Uncommon (Green), Rare (Orange), Unique (Red), and Legendary (Blue). The better effects, such as Bullet Split or Headshot don't appear until Rare or higher. Every Hack has a Cooldown, except Blue ones.




    Now, there is quite a good selection of weapons to choose from, broken into the groups Primary and Secondary. Things such as shotguns or assault rifles belong to the Primary group, and weapons such as pistols or sub machine guns count as Secondary.

    Instead of using the old system of allowing a character to completely design their own gun, we have a series of options for a starter to choose from. However, what you choose now defines your class, and that will decide your Skill Tree.


    Assault Rifle: The Shooty-Stick. Some have high RoF's (Rate of Fire), other may have low ones. Their ammo clip is usually around thirty shots, and each clip costs fifteen gold coins to replenish.

    Shotgun: A short-middle range gun witch a high spread. The Rate of Fire is usually low, and clips mostly stay around the eight bullets range. Luckily, the clips cost only ten gold coins, making it a cheaper option.

    Machine Gun: The classic Fill them with Lead technique. Very high rate of fire and magazine size, usually around one hundred, but rather poor accuracy and reload speed. Each clip cost forty five gold coins, which isn't bad late game, but a pain to afford early.

    Sub-Machine Gun: The Machine Gun's younger brother. Incredibly high rate of fire, low recoil, fast to reload, decent accuracy, it's a great gun. However, it tends to burn through ammo a bit too swiftly, and the magazine sizes average at thirty bullets, one clip costing fifteen gold coins.

    Pistol: The preferred concealed weapon. A low fire rate, damage, and magazine size, but makes up for that in it's low price, decent damage per shot, and good accuracy. A single clip costs three gold coins.

    Sniper Rifle: A marksman's best friend, the Sniper Rifle uses a very high accuracy statistic paired with high damage to kill things from a distance. Clips are even smaller than shotguns, being around five bullets, but costing twenty five per magazine. Fire rate is low, and the accuracy is poor without a scope.

    Rocket Launcher: If only Michael Bay were here... This is the Shotgun's third cousin twice removed. Using a very high damage and a good range, this weapon causes explosions. Nuff said. Price per rocket is two hundred gold coins.




    Rules:
    - Standard Forum Rules apply.
    - Powergaming exists in a sense that an attack guaranteed to hit will do less damage, while one left to the defending player to dodge or get hit by will do more.
    - You can't be from the Matrix and just dodge every bullet that comes your way.
    - Please use proper manners.
    - Killing another player is allowed, as you will merely respawn at the nearest town. However, combat is disabled within town limits.
    - No cheating in the game itself.
    - Hacks must be fair and must have an appropriate Cooldown.
    - One character per player for the time being. Will change soon enough.
    - RL Gender must match IG Gender.

    [Felix]

    When the runt from Diablo Village had hugged me, I smiled, remembering that adventure. "Hey there, you lil tyke. Life treating you well? If you want to stay on this voyage, feel free, there's nothing else I can do about it until we hit the next island on our map." I say, with a shrug. When Erin walks over, I give him a grin. My first mate, an incredibly powerful pirate. If you thought his Devil a Fruit abilities weren't scary enough, he's Spider-Man using Chains and swords. Lucifer, our Warlord guest, jumped into the water and started swimming away after he was finished with his share of the partying, which involved a few sips of sake and a bit of conversation.

    "Hey! All you drunkies head to bed! No shifts tonight, take a break." I tell the crew, which was ironic considering I was practically being tortured for the last few weeks. Two of them, Dom and Joel, sat on the benches on the deck, swords at their sides. My personal guard for when it was night time, since I wasn't as powerful at night. Any point of time that we weren't pillaging or during the day, they were sleeping in order to protect me when I couldn't fight.

    For the shifts, I didn't like my men getting overworked, so I split them into three groups of nine. Each group would cover eight hours of the day, such as 8AM through 4PM. The only three exempt from that rule are myself and my two, prementioned, guards. Tonight would be different, I would help cover the morning grind of midnight to eight. Our navigator, Steven, stood at the wheel, watching his Log-Pose and his collection of Eternal-Pos's. Away from the Grand Line, they were useless, and it clearly bothered him. His mind practically had a built in compass, and when he couldn't use it to navigate he got irritated. I knew he wouldn't go to bed, wanting to ensure our course stay perfect.

    "Anyways, if you guys want to sleep, we'll be at Forêt soon enough." I tell Erin and Melodia.

    The Golden Years were when we were breaking logic to eat a cheeseburger. Those were the days. CJ, I must write a story about this Roleplay, albeit different. I'd be able to include profanities, intercourse, and other adult subjects, although I'm not weird enough to go into full detail about it.

    Perhaps, eventually, we could get continue our adventures, although at this point and with issues going on, it's mostly just the three of us on. I was considering, for a little bit, a 'Next Generation' which would include a few of our kids and some new characters. It'd be funny, in a sense, and we could include the old ones as well at some points. Maybe it's just wishful thinking.

    I never really said what Wrath of the Divine meant, did I? Originally, it was to represent how the mankind had sinned against the Gods and brought upon their Wrath, but soon enough the Sins were introduced, so Tobias became the Divine Wrath, which took a spin on the concept. However, it exists where nothing exists, having no meaning but such a deep and touching definition.

    Well, I guess it's the end for Wrath of the Divine. It's been a long time coming, and it's sad to see it die. However, I will not shed any tears for it, as we've been slowly accepting it's decline. Good night, WOTD. I've loved you while you lasted.

    To get past the sadness, I do have a few projects in the works if anybody is interested. Keep your eyes peeled for these.

    - Gun Arc 2: I loved the concept of that Roleplay, but I feel it got sidetracked a bit too much. I'll be using my new techniques for writing OPs to make it much better, and hopefully come up with some kind of map. There will be balancing that needs to be handled, as well as things better defined, but it should work out well.

    - One Piece: This Roleplay is currently alive, yet slow as a turtle.

    - Realm of Chaos: Perhaps my second favorite Roleplay I've created, WOTD being my first. I intend on either bringing it back here or perhaps trying a new forum, but I'll link it nonetheless.
