Roleplay / Bay 12 Sword Art Online RP

Go To

A few years in the future, the first true full immersion system is created in Japan, by one Akihiko Kayaba. While the first year or 2 after its creation is filled with lackluster games, finally a game taking full advantage of the technology is created by the Akihiko himself. This game is Sword Art Online, a Virtual Reality Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (VRMMORPG for short). You are one of the lucky ones who managed to get a copy before it sold out. Playing on the North American server for whatever reason (maybe you actually live in North America, maybe the server where you were was full) You never knew what you were signing up forů
The OOC thread's introduction to the game.

Yet another Bay 12 roleplay based on an established universe, Bay12's Sword Art Online RP is an Alternate Universe RP taking place in the North American server of the titular game, taking place around the same time as the events in canon.

The premise is similar; twelve players jump into Sword Art Online, taking it to be a normal game like any other. They have no idea what it's really like.

The IC thread is here and the OOC thread is here. The RP was abandoned in 2015.

This roleplay contains examples of:

  • The Big Guy: Bradley is about seven feet tall, and shows it. This is especially pronounced when he casually picks up Shiina and lifts her.
  • Irony: Shiina resembles Sachi, a character who prefers to be an Actual Pacifist and is scared of dying. Shiina herself is a frontline tank who literally dives straight into battle.
  • Mighty Glacier:
    • Shiina; her stats don't allow her to move far, but allow her to hit hard and tank with ease.
    • Bradley is a borderline version of this; he's not as tanky as Shiina, but hits harder and has a skill that allows him to move farther.
  • Pint-Sized Powerhouse: Shiina, who's capable of hefting Bradley's hammer with ease and has a Sword Skill that reduces damage to her on top of her own already ridiculous defense score.
