Roleplay / Deadly Mistakes The Scripted City

Go To

"I've resolved to play the song that ends the world."
Who, Indeed?, "Session 1 of TERMINATING THE WORLD"
Oh, my youth, please just forgive me already…

Have you ever messed with one of those silly 12-character memes and gotten a "what if character X got character Y pregnant?" question, and then wondered what would have happened if that child was actually born?

Well. Don't worry about it, a lot of things have changed. Maybe too many things.

Do you think that the world can ever be fixed?

Run by TeamKarasu.

Deadly Mistakes: The Scripted City includes examples of:

  • Aerith and Bob: Inevitably.

    • Imagine being faced with a bomb threat at a mall and realizing your kid, who works in a store, isn't answering their calls or texts.

  • Ridiculously Average Guy: A running joke regarding Rowan.
    • “Am I the only one here who just has legs?” - Rowan himself.
    • "haha dude can't even teleport or divine blind bags" - Arin, Cecil's rper.

    • First, there's Nan, a terrorist who blew up a mini-mall, after... Waiting for everyone to evacuate it. Hm.
    • Next up, Wren deSadar, [WIP]
  • Soul-Sucking Retail Job: Frank, an NPC who is the center of a puzzle, is subjected to one. He's terrified of the bomb, yes, but he can't bring himself to leave his post of his own accord and barely holds back on crying joyfully after Vidi carries him out to safety.
