Roleplay: A Game of Gods: Infinities
"It will not be an easy road, " he said, old voice somber. "I can only be grateful for the fact that I was able to escape here to tell you of the danger. There will be no reward other than survival. Even so. Will you help us fight in this Game of Gods?"Launched in summer 2011, A Game of Gods: Infinities is the third installment in the Chronicles Of The Gods series. It is also notable for being the first direct sequel, as opposed to a spinoff, and for delving into the past to explore the origins of the Nomads and their culture. A year after the events of A Game Of Gods, a group of new Challengers are summoned by a mysterious force to an ancient crystalline city. However, they are soon caught up in a storm of new events, and are forced to travel across the multiverse as they fight for their lives. Soon they encounter the Remnants- distant ancestors of the original Nomads, who seem to have a dark secret of their own to hide...
— Yee, played by troydenite in A Game of Gods Infinities.
A Game Of Gods: Infinities has the following tropes
- Aborted Arc: Both the Magical Girl challenge and the Tetris challenge ended early due to Troubled Production.
- Breather Episode:
- Call Back: A few thus far. Notably the reappearance of former Champion Eddie Riggs when a challenge occurs in his world.
- Cancellation: The Magical Girl challenge; its GM quit the game in its middle.
- Chekhov's Gun: Duck Dodgers' trick of pulling off his beak and still talking with it is used to snap Fluttershy out of her Unstoppable Rage.
- Dirty Coward: The conman in the Recettear challenge completely freaks out when he's caught.
- Hurricane of Puns: The Xanth challenge, full stop.
- Level Ate: The world of Toriko.
- Let's Split Up, Gang: Pretty much mandatory. The entire group together is so large most enemies wouldn't stand a chance.
- Special Mention goes to the Dungeons & Dragons challenge, with three main groups out fixing various problems, another group stuck in the Tesseract, and Johnny doing odd jobs around Riverrock.
- Let's You and Him Fight: Nearly everyone began to fight each other in the beginning; Garland and Scorpion in particular had set up a duel with each other.
- Mood Whiplash:
- In one challenge, we have people who are helping out a cute shop owner by running said shop for her while other people assist her in dungeon crawling. In the other? Your typical League of Legends Skirmish.
- In one challenge, we have people who are in a world filled with bad puns. In the other, A Grim Dark technological world where robots hunt down biotechnological robots and innocent people become brainwashed robots.
- In one challenge, we have people who are in a fantasy land filled with food. In the other, a Grim Dark rock and roll wasteland where music is might, and innocent people are are corrupted into monsters.
- In one challenge, we have people who are mostly men turned girls or creatures turned human girls and become Magical Girls, fighting off powerful threat. In the other? What happens when you put people in the board during a Tetris game.
- Ragtag Bunch of Misfits: EVERYONE!
- Ship Tease: Fluttershy with nearly everyone.
- Scorpion tells Gi-Soo to buckle his seatbelt, because Seoul just went bye-bye.
- When Dubix offers to take over Shotaro, he tells him that together they can be justice.
- And when Dubix possess Shotaro, his eyes go purple as his Transformation Trinkets do the transforming for him. And his transformed state gives him black compound eyes.
- And right before Shotaro transforms to confront a Drowned Doctor, both Kamen Rider Kuuga and Kamen Rider Double are referenced (The "I will fight for those who can't fight" speech from the former, and the "Let me show you our power" speech from the latter)
- During a conversation on the ethics of killing, Kohaku points out that "People die if they're killed".
- Scorpion says "Words...say...talk?" when he gets disoriented at the beginning of the Magical Girl challenge.
- There Is No Kill Like Overkill:Mason: "When you've helped blow up planets and kill gods, overkill ceases to exist."
- In the Magical Girl challenge, Fluttershy's grandfather makes a Deal with the Devil. The next day, he shows up on a roof adjacent to Fluttershy's classroom with an M82 Barret. For those not in the know, the M82 is an anti-vehicle rifle that uses a .50 BMG cartridge. .50 BMG is the bullet type that bisects people in Rambo 4. What's funny is that an M82 has appeared in the series before, in the hands of Mason.
- Total Party Kill: Almost; in the League of Legends challenge, almost all of the middle-lane team is wiped out when one of their opponents explodes in a suicide attack. They can respawn though, so it doesn't stick.
- Older and Wiser: The Doctor, Saren and Samurai Jack are back. Some other veterans appeared as well, but have subsequently disappeared without a trace.
- Our Monsters Are Weird: Ropers are treated and described as such. Also anything from the world of Toriko most definitely counts.
- Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny/Let's You and Him Fight/Conflict Ball: Everyone vs. everyone else in the first act. It's then subverted when the mods decided that having people fighting each other constantly does not a good game make and decide to ban the constant fighting.
- Unexpected Character: Although this trope would be difficult to pull off in an Massively Multiplayer Crossover, Johnny fits the bill. No powers, no fighting skills, and from a Broadway Musical.
- Wouldn't Hit a Girl: Subverted by Shotaro. He would follow this trope, had it not been for the fact that he dealt with female Dopants almost as many times as he confronted male ones, which allowed him to confront Roxy.
