Starting out as CelestialEruption back in 2006 on Invisionfree, Celestial Refresh is a statistical [[PlayByPostGames Play By Post Game]] centering around characters and settings from various video games, anime, and a few other odd sources being ripped from their homeland and thrown into a new universe, simply called TheMultiverse. [[FishOutOfTemporalWater Many don't take this]] [[CrapsaccharineWorld very well at first]], however, over time, characters learn to adjust to their new homes and neighbors, and veterans are generally unfazed by the zanier parts of both magic and technology, regardless of their native home's surroundings. Despite it's dips into rather depressing situations, it does have it's sillier and more lighthearted moments.

!!Tropes related to CRRP:

[[foldercontrol]]

[[folder:Story/In character tropes]]
* AbortedArc: Common. Some, like the God Wars and Judges Arcs, were cancelled/ended early due to dissatisfaction with the progression or annoyance with powerful [=NPCs=] forcing unwanted participation. Others, such as Savage Tide, ended due to the primary storyteller going on hiatus or quitting.
* AerithAndBob: Justified, since the multiverse is the biggest melting pot in existence.
* AnachronismStew: What happens when you put [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda Hyrule]] and [[SonicTheHedgehog Station Square]] within space- or magic-traveling distance of each other
* AlternateUniverse: Explains a few discrepancies between characters and their original counterparts.
* ApocalypseHow: A few times, but generally Class 0 or Class 1
* ArcFatigue: Most recently, the ZombieApocalypse arc, which had been going on for roughly a year and a half. [[{{In-universe}} A lot of people were past just getting sick of it]] when it finally ended.
* AuthorityEqualsAsskicking: Leaders of factions are usually pretty strong.
* BlandNameProduct: [[{{twitter}} Flitter!]]
* BreakingTheFourthWall: The last battle in the ZombieApocalypse arc takes place on the forum proper, with the opponents being photobucket pictures and [[spoiler: zombified versions of certain Cbox personalities]].
** Deadpool obviously.
* CrapsaccharineWorld: Many people that were pure and innocent have been turned jaded, and many places like the [[{{Mario}} Mushroom]] and [[VideoGame/MarioAndLuigiSuperstarSaga BeanBean]] Kingdoms have been overrun by [[DrivenToMadness Insanity]] and [[Franchise/{{Disgaea}} Demons]], respectively.
* DarkWorld: Natch.
* DarkestHour: [[spoiler: NO is certainly going through one, with the destruction of their main HQ and the death of their leader, [[VideoGame/{{Fable}} Sparrow]].]]
* DeathIsCheap: The penalty for death is spending two weeks in a Diablo-based Netherrealm. And some of the areas in it are actually quite nice and peaceful.
* DeathMountain: Natch.
* EvenEvilHasStandards: An inevitability, with the alignment system.
* EvilTowerOfOminousness: Kefka's Tower before it was dismantled.
* FantasyKitchenSink
* FloatingContinent: Angel Island
* FishOutOfTemporalWater: Most everyone starts out this way.
* FoeYay: [[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou SA-X and Metal Sonic]], [[IHaveYouNowMyPretty Luxord and Florina]], [[UnholyMatrimony Ganondorf and Zelda]]...this trope is all over the place.
* GargleBlaster: [[CapitalLettersAreMagic Infected Mage]] is one hell of a drink... even [[HealingFactor Deadpool]] can't bring himself to drink more than five.

* KnightOfCerebus: Several: [[VideoGame/{{Fable}} The Crawler]] is a good example, as he was [[WordOfGod deliberately taken to kill some characters]].
* LevelDrain: All characters suffer this upon entering the Multiverse.
-> "[The Multiversal Drain] takes away all of [a character's] power, but removes any limitations, turning everyone into an over the top Manga/OnePiece character."
* LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters: Granted, many of them switch in and out of the story alot due to the users playing the characters getting bored and getting newer ones. Leads to a lot of confusion out of character, since most people are referred to by their main accounts.

-> Dag: WHO ARE ALL OF YOU PEOPLE
-> Dag: [[HypocriticalHumor STOP SWITCHING MORE THAN I DO]]
* MentalWorld: The Collective Unconscious.

* OminousFloatingCastle: Tempest Keep

** [[GunsAreWorthless And they all have the same effectiveness!]]
* [[TheChosenOne The Chosen Ones]]: The Savage Tide arc has Tails, the Ardent of Air, Lute, the Forger of Flames, Mia, the Warden of Water, and Mouse, the Envoy of Earth, as chosen guardians of Elemental Crystals. [[spoiler: Mouse has already fallen, however. As has Mia as far as anyone knows.]]

* TheLostWoods: Yeah...

* [[ArcWelding Topic Welding]]: The site as a whole generally does this a lot, due to its...''convenient'' time-line.

** "WHY THE F*** ARE WE HAVING A FLAME WAR OVER DEAD RELIGIONS!"
* BileFascination: The sole reason the [[{{Squick}} "Lizardman"]] and "[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Furry Handjob]]" quests are archived for people to read, as far as [[{{In-universe}} the memberbase is concerned]]. Well that and to torture members.

*** And by "it" he means his sister.
* ButtMonkey: Dag and Silver. Especially Dag.

* CornerOfWoe: Most people on the site have at least one phrase that will leave them crying in the corner.
** "Here kitty, kitty."

* CrossoverShip: Given the nature of the site, these are [[{{In-universe}} common]].
* DeadpanSnarker: Several people. Ammy and Maz are the most vocal, though.
* EldritchAbomination: The Cbox. Nuff said.
** He even has an Eldritch name, Ulyaoth.

* HurricaneOfPuns
* MemeticMolester: [[{{In-universe}} Oh god, where do we start]].
* MemeticMutation: [[{{In-universe}} YOU GOTTA EARN IT, THE HARD WAY]].

[[folder:Gameplay Tropes]]
* AnnoyingArrows[=/=]ArbitraryGunPower: Somewhat justified with the Multiversal Drain affecting the deadliness of most weapons.
* CharacterAlignment: In-universe example for general placement. Uses a number system instead of the usual format. Ranges from +5 (IncorruptiblePurePureness) to -5 (CompleteMonster)
* CharacterLevel: Ranks
* CriticalExistenceFailure: Although played straight statistic wise, it's usually good manners to subvert this trope in character.
* DamageTyping: Attacks can be Melee, Ranged, Ballistic, or Spell based.
* FightInTheNude: Occasionally subverted, on the player's fancy. Luckily no one ACTUALLY fights in the nude. ..yet.
* [[FireIceLightning Fire Cold Lightning]]: Makes their rounds, along with several other elements, such as Dark, Mental, Bio, Energy, Slashing...
* GameMaster: Moderators usually fall into this role, but some quests, called Personal Quests, don't require any Mods.
* GunsAreWorthless: A bullet will deal just as much as a knife or an axe or a fist for the exact same energy point cost.
* HitPoints
* InAndOutOfCharacter
* KarlMarxHatesYourGuts
* LoadsAndLoadsOfRules: A little more than your standard RP, but justified due to the complex stat system, and is nowhere near as bad as a TabletopGame.
** YMMV on if it's as bad as a Table Top RPG. Most [[TableTopGames table top RPGs]] run quickly after you figure out the single core mechanic. CRRP doesn't have a singular core mechanic.
* {{Mana}}: Labeled as Energy Points, and can be used for anything from magic spells to martial arts skills to aiming for different body parts.
* MoneySpider: Sometimes, although occasionally subverted.
* [[GlobalAirship Multiversal Spaceship]]
* OneSizeFitsAll: Equipment bought for one character will easily fit another.
* PlayByPostGame
* PointBuySystem[=/=]TechPoints: You can use Improvement Points to buy new attacks, or improve attack damage, or increase your vitals
* TheComputerIsACheatingBastard: Monsters in quests do not have to abide by the same rules that the [=PCs=] do.
* [[WebcomicTime Questing Time]]: With the occasional LampshadeHanging for good measure.
* StandardStatusEffect: Many make their rounds [[CallARabbitASmeerp under different names]]
* [[UniversalPoison Universal Wound]]
* WalletOfHolding Considering there isn't a single universal currency (Most collectively call it "c"), most people are carrying several different kinds, from paper to jewels to coins...
