Sandbox / Yugi 195

Go To

When you arrive at the oddly small building, a hologram of a female materializes and greets you at the entrance. Most of her complexion is pitch-black, as if her "skin"'s pigment is consuming all the light that hits it. Except it can't be, because her hair glows orange with little flashes of green, and her lips and nose emanate a green luster that contrasts to her incandescent orange eyes and brows. A slight mix of this luminescence softly emanates from various parts of her face, giving off the illusion of blush. Tiny particles revolve endlessly around her while little stars radiating darkness like microscopic black holes materialize and blend with her skin. Other than her unnatural coloring, you can't really put a finger on what's strange about her, but everything about her seems to be just slightly... off.

???? (In the most Creepy Monotone you've ever heard in your entire life. Even her voice sounds wrong.): Welcome to the Sandbox of Yugi195. I am the Series-01 Assistant Computational Entity, otherwise known as SOLACE. I'm afraid the owner of this Sandbox is currently elsewhere, but please, feel free to look around. The sole stipulation is that you do. Not. Touch. Anything. I will show you around.

SOLACE floats away. A little intimidated by the strange individual, you follow her into the short building, where she guides you into a one-person elevator, which closes behind you without her and starts going down to the subterranean part of the Sandbox. While it descends, a short piece of interesting piano music plays. As the song ends, the elevator slowly brings its journey to a stop and opens, revealing a much, much larger room than you were first in.

SOLACE is already inside the room, waiting for you. The room looks like a laboratory from the far future, with technology you can't even begin to wrap your mind around lining the walls, floor to ceiling. On the other side of the room, you can see a door at the other end. It has words on it, but you're too far away to read what they say. As you walk closer to the door, you spot a great many interesting people on your way. SOLACE takes this opportunity to inform you that the room you're currently in is for...

  • Original: June 23rd
  • Rank: Demigod
  • Symbol: The symbol on his bald head, and Octopascal, his empire's Team Pet who sits on his shoulder
  • Theme Song: Terrifying Margarita Empire
  • Alignment: Neutral Evil
  • Portfolio: Puppet King, Orcus on His Throne, Manipulative Bastard, The Unfought
  • Domains: Baldness, Evil, Evil Baldness
  • Herald: The Maruhage Empire (also known as the Margarita Empire, or the Chrome Dome Empire), especially his wife, the (literal) dragon Mako-chan, his (metaphorical) Dragon, Giga, and the Four Heavenly Kings
  • High Priest: Dr. Sivana
  • Followers: Dr. Hugo Strange, Adrian Toomes/The Vulture, Mac Gargan/The Scorpion, The Man with a Beard but no Hair
  • Allies: Freaky Fred, Dr. Ivo Robotnik/Eggman
  • Rivals:
  • Enemies: the House of Hair Styles in general (especially Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo, Rapunzel, Merida), Nigel Uno/Numbuh One, Faust Baldhead, Yugi Muto and Yami Yugi, Sonic the Hedgehog
  • Additional Character Relationships: Members of the Pantheon that have various relationships (examples include Enemy Mine, Vitriolic Best Buds, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, Headbutting Heroes, Friendly Enemy, Friendly Rival, Just Friends, etc.) other than allies, rivals, or enemies.
  • Partner: Defines a partnership with an ascended deity and Pokémon.
  • Respects: Lex Luthor
  • Pitied by/Pities: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon feel pity for or find pitiable.
  • Opposes: all deities with hair (unless they're allies)
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sometimes, the Deities argue over specific themes and philosophies.
  • Wavy. Straight. Curly. Coily. Long ago—but not really that long ago—the four hair types in the House of Hair Styles lived together in hairmony. Then, everything changed when Chrome Dome Empire attacked. There were many who could have stopped them, so when the House needed them most, they just, y'know... did. It wasn't even really that hard, actually. Nonetheless, it was still a very notable way for the Empire and its leader, the Czar Baldy Bald IVBeauty , to announce their arrival into the Pantheon.
    • After having retired from being the leader of the Maruhage Empire with his wife and pet, Tsuru Tsurulina IVBeauty  has decided to fulfill the vow he made to rebuild his empire—and now that he's in the Pantheon, he aims to make it stronger than it ever was before. How he plans to do that without ever getting up from his throne at all remains to be seen.
  • The fourth emperor of the Maruhage Empire (AKA the Margarita Empire or simply the Chrome Dome Empire), Tsuru Tsurulina was a cruel man who hated hair. Though he managed—with some inside help—to succeed where even his more ruthless predecessor failed by taking over the Hair Kingdom, his subsequent plan for the kingdom—to shave all the hair off its populace's heads—was opposed fiercely by his greatest enemy, the master of the Hanage Shinken (Fist of the Nose Hair), Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo.
    • Despite being the leader of the Margarita EmpireBeauty  and secretly being a Hollywood CyborgBeauty , he is easily one of the weakest members of his own empire, and relies almost entirely on deception and coercion to force his underlings to do his dirty work. On the occasion that someone—hero or villain—should confront him personally, it is very likely that he would run away like a complete wimp. Luckily, he's learned from his past experiences and has resolved to avoid being in that position again.
  • Having not abandoned his plans to shave everyone's head, the Czar has recruited certain gods as brand new Hair Hunters. He encourages Freaky Fred's naaaaaaaaauuuuuuughtyBeauty  tendencies, and frequently tries to employ Edward Scissorhands for his amazing haircuts. Edward is, however, much more reluctant to go along with his baldness ideals than Fred. Curiously, he doesn't seem to mind people in his empire having hair themselvesBeauty .
    • By the same token, Smoothie IV has declared war on the House of Hair Styles, the House that not only serves as the symbol of hair in the Pantheon, but also as the home of his hated nemesis. Obviously, Bo-bobo continues to oppose him at every turn, along with new allies like Rapunzel and MeridaBeauty . Though his forces are repelled with only moderate difficulty, his invasions are considered daily annoyances to those dedicated to protecting and enjoying hair.
  • As his stance in regards to hair is infamous, he has special relationships with deities that are bald. A good portion of them are evil like he is, but the rest are usually just awesome.
    • Sees Lex Luthor as being like the brother he never hadBeauty , and often likes to go to him for good advice. He has no idea that Lex is planning to usurp him and take control of his empire (with full intent to change its name and mission)... just like his actual brother did.
    • He commissioned Dr. Eggman to build him his own special version of the Egg Mobile so that he can move around the Pantheon without having to leave his throne. Unfortunately, while Eggman did construct the vehicle for him as promised, Tsuru's aim hit a snag when he realized that using it on a casual basis would make it easier for someone to find him and attack him directly. He's opted to keep the "Maruhage Mobile" (also known as the Margarita Mobile and the Chrome Dome Mobile) in storage, prepared to use it to make quick escapes should his location be compromised. On that note, he thinks Sonic the Hedgehog is way too much like Don Patch (Poppa Rocks), his nemesis' sidekickBeauty 
    • As someone determined to ensure that no kid ever has to go through the travesty that led to his own baldness; Nigel Uno, leader of Sector V of the Kids Next Door, fiercely leads his team in aiding the guardians of hair in the war against baldness.
  • And a couple of more.

  • An image, if possible. Please use official art or a screenshot for a picture.
  • Potential House:
  • Original: June 17
  • Rank: This can range from Quasideity, Demigod, Lesser God, Intermediate God, Greater God, to Overdeity, based on representation of power.
  • Symbol: An image or icon used to represent the deity.
  • Theme Song: Official song (in other words, no fan music, regardless of quality) that usually is used in affiliation with the character. If the deity is a musician this will most likely be their Signature Song. If possible, give a link for reference, preferably on YouTube.
  • Alignment: Good, evil, neutral etc. Forget about The Great Character Alignment Debate here, the Pantheon is one of the few places where you can assign Dungeons & Dragons alignment to characters that don't have alignment system. After all, the Pantheon is based on D&D.
  • Gender: For Pokémon deities only. Defines the gender of the Pokémon; if genderless, it instead defines what gender they identify as.
  • Ability: Provides the Pokémon's ability. If they can Mega Evolve, the new ability is listed as well.
  • Moves: Defines the four moves used by a Pokémon. A Z-Move may also be listed.
  • Portfolio: Tropes associated with the character.
  • Domains: Things that the character has influence over.
  • Herald: Non-ascended loyal character that is from the same series as the ascended character.
  • High Priest: Non-ascended like heralds, but not from the same series, and can serve as a worthy replacement in case something would happen. They can be served as part-time workers in case the originals are busy with some jobs. Co-Godhood is accepted depending on the approval of the originals, usually if the co-deity is from the same series.
  • Followers: Non-ascended characters that are not part of the Pantheon, but would probably worship this character by the fact that they share the ascended character's trope.
  • Allies: Members of the Pantheon that are allies.
  • Rivals: Members of the Pantheon that are rivals.
  • Enemies: Members of the Pantheon that are foes.
  • Additional Character Relationships: Members of the Pantheon that have various relationships (examples include Enemy Mine, Vitriolic Best Buds, Teeth-Clenched Teamwork, Headbutting Heroes, Friendly Enemy, Friendly Rival, Just Friends, etc.) other than allies, rivals, or enemies.
  • Partner: Defines a partnership with an ascended deity and Pokémon.
  • Respected by/Respects: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon respect or are respected by.
  • Pitied by/Pities: A deity whom the members of the Pantheon feel pity for or find pitiable.
  • Opposed by/Opposes: Not necessarily the same as "Enemies", but this is used for any deity whom the members of the Pantheon directly opposes or is opposed by, regardless of alignment.
  • Conflicting Opinion: Sometimes, the Deities argue over specific themes and philosophies.
  • Add the Intro. The intro is made up of two trivia, the Ascension Text (or just the Ascension) and The Bio. Both are necessary, but which order you use for them may vary depending on the profile in question. It may be better for one profile to have The Bio first and the Ascension second or vice-versa, although for the most part the order is irrelevant:
    • The Ascension Text: This the story of how the character got into the Pantheon and/or was ascended. There are many ways for this to happen. They may be tricked into it or have simply wandered into the Pantheon, they may have had an already ascended character bring them in, they may already be in the Pantheon (via being another deity's Herald or sharing a trope) and got "promoted", or some combination of the above. Anything is possible in the Pantheon, so use your imagination, but try to incorporate their trope into the story, if possible.
    • The Bio: A brief synopsis on the character's backstory. No need for the character's entire life/production history, but just give enough that those who don't know the character can get an idea of how the character works.
  • Now add some random trivia/facts about events/alignments/moments/fights/friendships/relations etc.
  • And some more trivia/facts.
  • And a couple of more.

Some of them take notice of you as you pass by, while others ignore you entirely. You rush away before any of them get a chance to talk to you. You're not sure if they count as something you're allowed to touch, after all, and as you glance back to see SOLACE eerily eyeing you unblinkingly, you feel pretty certain that she isn't going to let you know how close you are to breaking the rule until after you've already broken it. You walk by quickly.


Upon finally passing by all the different characters, you finally get close enough to the door to read what it says:

     Completed Profiles 

You enter the room.

Inside this room, you find a single machine, glowing with ethereal lights. In front of it is a control panel with multiple small buttons. They're separated into two groups, and two large stickers classify one group as "Ascended" and the other as "Reworked".

...

SOLACE: This device... (You quickly recoil from the unexpected voice speaking to you and look to see SOLACE standing right beside you. You did not hear her follow you in here, let alone get this close. She doesn't seem to notice your aversion.) ...is for keeping track of gods who have previously made refuge in this Sandbox. Pressing any of the buttons will activate the teleporter, which will instantly take you to the temple of the designated deity. You are permitted to make use of it, so long as you do not break it.

...

You look closer at the control panel, and find that each button is indeed labeled. The labels used are as follows:

Deciding that you're not going to use any of the teleporters, you make your way back to the previous room.


Deciding that you're finished exploring, you head for the exit.

SOLACE: Leaving so soon?

You nod. After a tense moment, the elevator opens again for you.

SOLACE: Feel free to return if you wish... or don't. It really doesn't make much difference...

Not really sure what that means, and not really caring enough to ask, you go back into the elevator, and it begins descending...
