Roleplay / Sbarg V 2

Go To

RS: We're playing a game to create a new universe and kill a psychopath crazed on power-high and godlike ability (possibly more'n one of 'em) wherein we explore fantastical lands ripped straight outta a storybook doin' busywork for anthropomorphic animals and possibly giant snakey asshole trickster mentors.
RS: And you're worried about growing up and a family?

So basically some Homestuck alternate reality game + roleplay combination called SBARG became a thing where some Horrorterrors set up a SBURB session. Some villain guy named Chronos broke everything. The entire thing was reset.

So of course a Fan Sequel pops up. In this one the entire game is a basically a huge ball of glitching stuff. The First Guardian tries to fix it, but it's not going well so far at least.


SBARGv2 contains examples of:

  • Arc Number: The "session signature", 0xBACAFE. This weird shade of blue has been adopted by the players into anything from an ironically shitty fantroll, to a cafe name, to subconscious wall scribbles. It used to be 0xBACADE, but Chronos modified it to try and throw off Ornis.
  • Character Blog: Most events come from the Guardian's tumblr page. Additionally, it was encouraged early on for players to record their events under the "v2journal" tag, which many still do.
  • Fanon Borrowing: Uses a few concepts from Sburb Glitch FAQ like the Skaian Magicant.
  • Game-Breaking Bug: Apparently the game is uncompletable until the Guardian fixes it.
  • Impossibly Cool Weapon: Found absolutely everywhere. Hey, when you've got an alchimeter, time, and grist to burn...
  • Massive Multiplayer Crossover: When you can prototype or alchemize anything, and have this many players in one session, this is inevitable.
  • Rapunzel Hair: The Chronos cosplay of the Guardian.
  • The Reveal: The Guardian was actually Chronos.
  • Schizophrenic Difficulty: one puzzle took 20 people 3 weeks. Another took one person 5 minutes.
  • Stealth Pun: Chronos as the Guardian was literally a sassy black woman.
  • Unobtainium: Pumpkins. An early pre-entry puzzle involved sending in pictures of pumpkins to be appearified and later used as a power source for the code-modification machine. They are impossible to find in the Medium, so when they ran out, the Guardian required a different power source... which was a trap to destroy the Gates, attempt to kill the sprites that went, and unleash Chronos.
  • Fantastic Racism: Certain players towards consorts, intensified after they were brought through the end game gate and populated the planet better than the human players.


How well does it match the trope?
