The current thread's subtitle

"This is ridiculous."
Darvi, on this RP and/or trope page

Lost and Found of the Multiverse is a freeform roleplay on the Bay 12 Forums, that centers around a realm called the Lost and Found, a place where all things that vanish from various realities end up. Several people from all over fiction and reality, or even original characters, end up in here and have to band together to survive. From here, they bumble into various adventures, ranging from exploring ruined cities to fighting off invasions.


The thread can be found here, and the character thread here.

Sadly, the roleplay has ended owing to ridiculous use of metagaming and personal reasons for the GM, but there is currently a third version in the works.

This game contains examples of (the trope list is expanding everyday):

  • Above Good and Evil: Albrecht describes himself to be this.
  • Action Girl: All of them, Maria and Ariana in particular.
  • Aerith and Bob: Inevitable due to the various universes crossed over. Names like Albrecht and Medea are found alongside names like Richard and Nathan.
  • Affably Evil: Albrecht is this before his Heel–Face Turn.
  • Always a Bigger Fish: Shadow Richard is subjected to this by Noxus.
  • Always Accurate Attack: Any attack used with Alith's Aim ability, or Mara's Snipe. Otherwise, generally averted.
  • Ambadassador: Albrecht.
  • Advertisement:
  • An Axe to Grind: Allie, as well as Reinhilde!Marie.
  • Anthropomorphic Personification: Marie is one for nightmares.
    • During the adventure in Allie's mind, the abominations that wandered around were of bad childhood memories.
  • Anti-Hero: Adrian.
  • Anti-Villain: Albrecht, before his Heel–Face Turn. Noxus attempts to appear as this, but goes berserk when the party refuses to hand over Richard.
  • Archenemy: Noxus is this to the ENTIRE party, and Harbinger. Harbinger is this to Noxus.
  • Ascended Extra: Harbinger was only a minor NPC who acted to keep the group out of the forest when fighting Shadows. Then, it is revealed that he has unspecified history with Noxus, the Final Boss of the shadow realm. After that, he becomes a temporary party member, staying to help protect the Lazarus against the impending invasion.
  • Arc Number: 4784 7847847 84784784
  • The Atoner: Alith has this as his backstory. Also, Jacke and Albrecht.
  • Advertisement:
  • Axe-Crazy: Bonnie and Clyde, the elf and pixie couple of the as of yet unnamed antagonist group. Also, Phyliss, Angerus, and Kwykathen.
  • Beware the Silly Ones: Gaston and Alith are both jokers who love kidding around, albeit in different ways. They are also trained fighters; Gaston is a swordmage, and Alith is a very skilled archer. Marie also counts, being a jokesy nightmare who blasts things apart with a NUKE, among other things.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Harbinger, repeatedly.
  • Bilingual Bonus: The Lazarus's flags contain the number 308. The way Hebrew numbers are written (letters stand in for numbers), the name Lazarus adds up to 308.
    • 'Schwarzschild in German means 'black shield'. Guess what emblem Albrecht's messenger hawks had.
  • Big Bad: Noxus.
  • Blood Knight: Kwykathen, Phyliss, Clyde, and Angerus.
  • Break the Cutie: Mara comes pre-broken, courtesy of Clyde murdering all of her kin, despite warnings by Albrecht to stay back.
  • Chrome Champion: Isabella has the name of 'Steel Dragon' for a very good reason.
  • Cool Ship: Lazarus is a walking, steam-powered battleship. With plasma cannons and Frickin' Laser Beams.
  • Cast from HP: Persona physical attacks.
  • Cat Girl: Camille, Kwykathen, and Mara. And Nicole.
  • Chekhov's Gunman: Harbinger started out as an unnamed prescence in the forest, before coming to help the party kill Noxus.
  • Classical Mythology: Medea and her Persona, Jason. Richard studies this.
  • Cloud Cuckoolander: Probably around a quarter of the cast could qualify.
  • Combination Attack: Richard and Maria have some using their Personas, and Richard can execute them alone, using his Personas.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Richard and Alith.
  • Cultured Badass: Gaston and Albrecht.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Alith used to be this, before becoming a rabid Shipper on Deck. Richard has shades of this.
  • Elemental Powers:
  • Elemental Embodiment: Phyliss is one, in addition to being a ghost. We're not quite sure how.
  • Empowered Badass Normal: Robert.
  • Foreshadowing: LOADS, especially in the current adventure.
  • Frickin' Laser Beams: Quite popular for the sci-fi types. Adrian had them first, then Camille copied them and added magical effects through weird lenses. Then she put giant ones on the Lazarus.
  • Geas: Albrecht's Geass is similar. Also, the mesmer used by Bonnie and Clyde.
  • Genius Bruiser: Harbinger, Gaston, Ori, and Maria.
  • Geodesic Cast: How Twi is SUPPOSED to cut back on how many characters he uses at once. He's not all that reliable about it, though.
  • Good Is Not Nice: Adrian is a Jerkass to Richard, and is generally unpleasant to most of the group except Sona. Kwykathen is the Token Evil Teammate and a Blood Knight . Phyliss is very close to being an Omnicidal Maniac.
  • Guile Hero: Alith is this in backstory, and currently, Albrecht.
  • Guest-Star Party Member: Harbinger, Mara, and after their escape, Albrecht, Medea, Robert, and Lysander.
  • Heroic BSoD: Gaston undergoes this after Robert is revealed to have been Geassed. Mara undergoes this after being dug out of the pile of dead catpeople, and Camille undergoes this after having accidentally treated Maria like a toy.
  • Humongous Mecha: The Knightmare Frames and the Lazarus to an extent. Trebuchet's Guardian Form can also turn into one.
  • Hopeless Boss Fight: The party fighting the Reaper. Also, initially, the party against Noxus until Harbinger intervenes and weakens him.
  • Informed Ability: Alith being a good archer.
  • Insistent Terminology: They're the Lost and the Damned, NOT the Ghost Brigade or anything like that.
  • In-Series Nickname: Plenty.
    • Maria called Kywkathen 'Katherine' for a while.
    • The demonblood Braugerin, aside from being shortened to Braug, had to deal with Marie, who decided his name was von Braun.
    • Orichalcum is long. Ori is shorter.
  • Kick the Dog: The murder of the catperson army.
    • The murder of Alith's best friend in backstory.
    • Robert betraying the team after having been found out to be mind controlled.
    • The fact that Clyde wants to kill the kittens AGAIN by hurling more cats through veils to become sentient so he can kill them.
    • In fact, the antagonists just love to kick dogs all over the place.
    • The verbal beating Adrian gave to Richard, about being undeserving of his powers, also counts, to a lesser extent.
  • Large Ham: Gaston, Noxus, Allie, sometimes Camille, the Hybrid..
  • Lethal Chef: Sona. She uses DIRT in her recipes.
  • Living Statue: The Fortified Orichalcum Sonata of Ages! ...Or just Orichalcum. She was originally a simple landmark, not alive at all.
  • Little Bit Beastly: Sapphira is a kitsune, Camille, Mara and Nicole are Cat Girls.
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: The game is based around this. The fictions and properties featured in any major capacity so far have been:
  • Monster of the Week: The Arcana Shadow battles.
  • Monster Knight: Isabella Cattleya Flora. Full stop.
  • Nightmare Fetishist: Marie.
  • Names to Run Away from Really Fast: The Lost and the Damned.
    • Harbinger, the crow mage. It gets worse depending on the translation: one possible translation from nightcrow language is Harbinger-of-the-night-and-bringer-of-crows. He finds it pretentious.
    • The Burning Crow.
    • Andras the Wrathful Demon, Forneus the Sea Monster and Yomotsu-Shikome the Underworld Hag.
    • The Second Hybrid's (As of yet unrevealed) Chosen name is supposed to try and be this.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Phyliss would be this if it weren't for the rest of the Lost and the Damned.
  • One Steve Limit: Averted: There are two Isabellas. Both are humanoid dragons. One is red, dresses like a sailor, and packs some hefty revolvers, the other is dead, shapeshifts, and has a serious case of being a hero. And is made of steel.
    • Marie once tried to copy the latter and ended up in the former's form instead. She rolled with it, though.
  • Overly Long Name: The Fortified Orichalcum Sonata of Ages. Unsurprisingly, she just goes with Orichalcum.
  • Our Ghosts Are Different: Phyliss and the Lost and the Damned.
  • Pet the Dog: Albrecht does this by taking Lysander, an innocent teen Pokémon trainer captured by the antagonists, and Robert with him during his escape. He also does this by giving Medea a morality chip. The Burning Crow, an early NPC, does this by sacrificing himself for his daughter, Nenikii.
  • The Power of Friendship: Richard invokes this by having to have Social Links to gain Personas.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Warper and Sola!Marie. Harbinger as well.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Alith and Gaston.
  • Revolvers Are Just Better: Camille's sidearm is a pepperbox revolver (every chamber is a barrel) with a clockwork autoloader and alpha-strike capability. Somewhat averted, as it hasn't been that useful in combat, but it's still bloody cool.
    • James Reyes is also quite the fan of revolvers.
    • The other Isabella, for her part, carried FOUR oversized, custom-made revolvers at all times.
  • Running Gag: Many, many of them.
    • Phyliss really, really hates crows.
    • Alith loves shipping.
    • Cats piling on Alith.
    • Phyliss cursing like a sailor.
  • Science Hero: Camille and Sapphira.
  • Shout-Out: Tons and tons and tons. A few examples:
    • Marie's forms are usually based on various cultural things, if they're not the (unoriginal) characters of her own homeland. Vocaloid, Touhou, Valkyria Chronicles, and who knows how many other things have thus far received this treatment.
      • Averted with Marie's latest, entirely home-made forms.
  • The Stoner: Bryan.
  • Slice of Life: When the party isn't off adventuring.
  • Strong as They Need to Be: Probably why power levels keep going up.
  • Summon Bigger Fish: Marie attempted to do this against the Reaper via Phyliss's army, but Harbinger got there first.
  • Theme Naming: The Knightmare Frames are named after Arthurian characters, Medea's Persona is called Jason, the two fairies are called Bonnie and Clyde...the list goes on.
  • Theme Table: OREOSOME has made notes about most of the Nations and Features in Team Chess' Universe, as well as Tara's
  • Troll:The Shadow Selves attempt it, but fail due to most of the party being relatively at peace with themselves. Marie IS a troll by nature.
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Marie and Alith.
    • Also Isabella, from her 'little Gria-esque girl with a nice sword' form to 'giant eight-foot tall dragon made of steel.'
    • Cath, sort of. She drinks blood, and then she turns into the person the blood is from.
      • Camille once turned this against her, if only because she wanted to tweak her own cat ears or something.
  • Voice with an Internet Connection: Tisiphone, despite the occasional threat of using nuclear weapons, is pretty much this right now.
  • Wham Episode: The catperson army getting murdered by being mesemerized to strangle themselves, and the revelation that another, stronger, bigger group wants in on the Lazarus.
  • You Have Failed Me: This happens to Shadow Richard after he fails to repel the party by Noxus.

How well does it match the trope?
