Roleplay / Opa City

Go To

"I hate the soul of retribution. What the fuck is "my friends"? ??? Bitch im gonna kill you."
The entire party
"wip" — the Soul of Retribution
Opa City is a tabletop-based roleplay following three friends, Pastor, Hester and Coral, who hail from the fabled Opa City - not that they know what a special place it is to everyone who lives outside of it. After getting caught up in a ritual they were never meant to see, its caster, the enigmatic Soul of Retribution takes... ''Something'' away from them, and they can no longer go back home.

Opa City includes examples of:

  • Collapsing Lair: The aquarium began flooding with endless black blood after the dungeon’s final confrontation, forcing the party to either flee or drown.
  • Elemental Eye Colors: In this universe, eye color denotes your 'Aspect Shade,' the color that the specific 'you' you are is best represented by.
  • Fisher Kingdom: Whatever Soret and his friends did to the park, just being in the area was enough to sever the party from their whole selves.
  • Go-Karting with Bowser: The segment in which the party went to the copy of an Opa City amusement park with the Soul of Retribution. That all went downhill in the aquarium, though, after he learned Pastor's name.
  • invokedPortmanteau Couple Name: Pastoret, representing Pastor/Soret for example.
  • Rule of Three: When all three of the party members found out they had dropped to 3 health after a boss fight, they received an extra lore note as a sort of ‘achievement unlocked’ reward.

  • Show Within a Show: “Man and the Sea,” the film shown at the ocean theatre to the party, a dense and artsy mess in-depthly described by the GM. It was apparently co-created by the absent aquarium director and the theatre’s projectionist. The twist: it’s a symbolic biopic, representing the horrifying story of Revelation’s life.
  • The Fog of Ages: Implied to have happened to the author of the aquarium notes. "i have forgotten your face. i have forgotten your voice. i have forgotten your shape, the space inside me carved to fit you. but, I could never forget your name."
  • Void Between the Worlds: According to the Soul of Retribution, between worlds, there are two things: eons of darkness, and the light of Opa City itself.
  • You Can't Go Home Again: After whatever the Soul of Retribution did to the party, Opa City itself seems to reject them.

How well does it match the trope?
