A Play-by-Post Forum RP by TheSequelReturns, hosted on SerebiiForums. The RP is loosely based upon the world of Black Rock Shooter, sharing several characters and themes, but the world and storyline are original.The setting is Threshold, a mysterious island floating in the ether. This is the afterlife, or at least part of it. The denizens of Threshold are all born into this world with their own unique, indestructible weapon, and are locked in struggle over the Shards of Heaven, mysterious artifacts that will supposedly open up a gate to Heaven. Death is impermanent, as any wound, no matter how mortal, regenerates after a period of time. The only way to truly die is to turn one's own weapon against themselves or to fall off the edge. Or get thrown off, whatever the case may be.The characters - some newly dead and arrived in Threshold, some old hands - converge in Sanctuary, a zone where combat is prohibited and peace is maintained by a mysterious figure named Angel. Here, they hear the words of Black Rock Shooter, a girl who claims to have fallen off of the edge and survived. She desires peace, and wishes to unite Threshold.Other powerful souls offer alternative paths. Iron Chain fights for control of Threshold and the shards from his base in the Redwood, locked in combat with the forces of the sadistic Dead Master. The beautiful Revanche lures some in with honeyed words of freedom and peace, set upon by the mighty Demon: Black Gold Saw. And others continue to work from the shadows...
