Rifts In Reality

As told by:


Plot Type: Micro Plot

Gateways are opening up all over the city, portals tearing people away from where (and sometimes when!) they were.

The demons are gone, the portals seem closed. What a relief. But there was a cost.

And seems it as perhaps a serious cost. So many powers were used. The aftershocks are apparent throughout the east coast. Many suspect that the sheer use of powers and abilities during the battle might have caused an imbalance. Others suggest this is the demon's doing, on their way out. Still others suggest it is something else, like alien abductions and invasion.

What does it look like? Glittering silver and blue rips in reality, slightly bigger than a person, are showing up here and there. They come out of nowhere, these glowing fractures in space. They are odd spacial vents, and sometimes even fractures in time. You can be speaking to someone one minute, and suddenly there is a rip, and they are gone. Completely gone.

You might be relaxing at a bus stop, and then suddenly you are in central park, days later. Your phone is full of texts of your worried friends, and somehow you missed all of that gap. No one knows where you were, least of all you. Reality bent somehow. It can be seconds lost, or it can be days, or weeks…


RP Hooks

Here are some ways you can get involved:

  • The rips aren't everywhere, some people may never experience them at all. They seem random and strange. This plot is entirely optional.
                  • Play in places you have never been to (with permission, don't appear in Stark Tower without asking), and with people you have never had a reason to play with before!
                  • Yes, lots of roles are changing players and you may be missing someone important in your character's life. Use this, if you would like. Perhaps a rift took them. Maybe you can investigate. Talk to others who are also missing friends and teammates!
                  • Magical, technological, 'other', want to investigate? Absolutely do so. Check in with plot staff for clues, but everyone is invited to work to start to track down what is causing these rifts in roleplay!
