Roleplay / Reaching Salvation

Go To

Reaching Salvation is a Role Playing experience that has since been separated into two distinct halves: The Acer Tournament story line and the Post Acer War story line. The original RP was originally created by LastPrelude and is hosted on This is Not A Forum over on Fan Fiction Dot Net, whilst the Post Acer story takes place five years later, with the contestants that competed in the Acer Tournament in the original RP having moved on and set up their own little village.

General Reaching Salvation Tropes:

Tropes pertaining to the original Reaching Salvation only:

     A - D 

     E - L 
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: Paul averts this, seeing as her already has plenty of experience with guns prior to the start of the RP whilst Eithne invoked this trope in his fight with Nathan, though it also counts as a subversion given he's been shown throwing and aiming things, mainly apples at various points prior and it's taught him to have reasonable aim, yet he'd never really fired a gun prior to using it in the fight.
  • Infant Immortality: Averted with Mitsu's death during the Beast Tamer Challenge.
  • Irony: See Mama Bear entry below.
  • It's All About Me: Nathan.
  • Jerkass: Nathan, unsurprisingly.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Eithne is this at times, other times he's just straight up Jerkass. Joey had a moment as one of these during the Breakout Arc during the face off with Shima.
  • Kick the Dog: Nathan does this brilliantly at times. Others are just as guilty, Nathan just does it better.
    • Oliver kicks a whole bunch of puppies by ordering [[spoiler's Sabina's death]].
  • Kill It with Fire: Luke, Luke and Luke. And who else... oh yeah, LUKE!
  • Kill It with Ice: Nathan.
  • Lampshade Hanging: On a few occasions, though only one or two are note worthy. And others are just groan inducing.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: Surprisingly, Percival is more guilty of this than anyone thus far. Must come with the territory of being the most Genre Savvy character we have...
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Once again, Eithne is very guilty of this during his first confrontation with Heidi.
    • Averted from this point on as no one has been guilty of this since Eithne invoked said trope in the above example.
    • The beast Joey's team is paired up with during the Beast Tamer Challenge thinks about pulling this off, Joey Lampshades that it would be a very bad idea.
  • Love Triangle: Depending on how the next few days go, the situation with Luke, Kira and Nathan could end up morphing into one of these.
    • Now I have no idea what the hell it is. Doesn't seem like either ship has much chance of winning now.

     M -S 

     T - Z 
  • Troubling Unchildlike Behaviour: With his limited knowledge of electronics and desserts, along with calling his father by his first name, Simon is known to show this to Heidi without even knowing it.
  • Tsundere: Heidi personifies Type A of this trope to a T.
  • Understatement: Shit loads of 'em.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: Could apply to some.
  • Up to Eleven: And then some. The best example would probably be the mass power boost upon becoming an adult.
  • Utopia: What the Big Five promise the contestants. See Blatant Lies.
  • Videogame Flamethrowers Suck: Subverted(?) with Paul and his use of the Flamethrower during the Breakout Arc.
  • What Could Have Been: Shepard was suppose to be a Redshirt, yet he's still around in the second half of Part III. Hmm...
    • Simon was also a planned Red Shirt that was meant to add more vulnerability to the RP.
  • What the Hell, Hero?: Nathan gets called out a lot on his own actions by those around him, more so than anyone else, at any rate.
  • Why Don't You Just Shoot Him?: Could have saved Shima a hell of a lot of trouble during the Breakout Arc.
  • Wildcard: Nathan and Eithne are more or less this whilst they remain in the tower, yet are on Shima's side.
  • Wouldn't Hurt a Child: Played straight by the likes of Eithne, Luke and many more including Heidi - if her attachment to Simon is anything to go by.
    • Subverted by Ven (an NPC), though a vast majority of the main characters could also subvert this if it meant protecting themselves and their teammates, because technically, they all are still kids.
    • Big Five anyone?
      • They play with the trope in a most bizarre fashion. Whilst none of them have directly hurt any of the contests thus far, from what we've seen, they're hardly protecting them by making them compete in life threatening challenges for a shot at Utopia.
