Role Play / Rise Of The Alterverse

Go To

Secret to the world and only known to a select few, magic exists. Chosen young girls and boys begin to display this mysterious energy when they come of age. Most are thrown into conflict, while others choose it. Magic exists, and it will lead to... Rise of the Alterverse
— The opening, complete with a Title Drop.

In 2010 a group of heroes foiled the attempted conquest of Earth by an invading race of lizard like humanoids known as the Layar. Thanks to the efforts of the Northsdale Five, lead by a young girl named Maria Ryan, the Layar were forced to retreat. Two years later a diplomatic escort from Layar arrived on Earth to open a peace treaty with our Planet, in exchange for some of our resources, we were provided with the means to explore space. It is now 2016, and the human race has colonized Mars, Europa, and Titan, providing more space for the Human race to grow and expand. The story begins as several people with supernatural abilities are kidnapped by the Layar.


Originally a Spin-Off of Rise of the Magic Girls, Rise of the Alterverse has since turned into its own entity.

This game shows examples of:

  • Anti-Antichrist: Sen is Lucifer’s daughter and she helps out the player characters.
  • Anti-Hero: Some of the characters are this.
  • Archaic Weapon for an Advanced Age: Some characters use melee weapons when others use guns.
  • Conveniently an Orphan: A few cases.

  • GMPC: Kiki, and formerly Sen.
  • Guns Akimbo: Tori’s primary weapons are dual pistols, both for normal shooting and magically enhanced shots.
  • Innocent Fanservice Girl: Tori tends to go rather light on the clothing. Social conventions were not a part of her education. She does cover up when going somewhere cold.
  • Mage Marksman: Tori, of the "Magic Gunman" variety: Her guns are used for most of her spells.
  • Mega-Corp: The Atlas Corporation, mentioned in Tori’s backstory.
  • Our Dragons Are Different: Melinda, Victoria, Sora, and Lilly are dragons who can take human form.
  • Our Zombies Are Different: Lillian is a ghoul, which is basically a sentient zombie in this context.
  • Power Tattoo: Tori has them. They glow when she's in her magic form.
  • Point Build System: Players distribute points between different stats, with a cap based on level to prevent Min-Maxing.
  • Advertisement:
  • Regenerating Health: Melinda/Skyflame has an ability that does this.
  • Retcon: Due to a major change in the rule system- particularly the rule that characters must transform to attack and use abilities - several characters from the opening and shortly after had to be changed entirely to fit the new system. Some players decided to make completely new characters, rather than try to find a way to make their original viable.
  • Spell Crafting: All spells in the new system are created by spending points for different effects and traits, with the amount of points to spend based on the rank of the spell and drawbacks.
  • Spiritual Successor: To Rise of the Magical Girls.
  • Transformation Trinket: One of the possible methods of transformation.
