Hi, while Paper Mafia is still going, I realize the system could always be better and it still has a long way to evolve before it can finally become a good system (maybe for a real game? ooh, tantalizing.)
If you want to help playtest in a RP free, combat only environment, you've clicked on the right hyperlink.
The playtest has switched over to the new P&PM System. Details on this system can be found in the following locations:
Each of you has a dream... You're in a glimmering room of rainbow crystals, slowly shifting and pulsating between various colours. It takes a while for your eyes to adjust to the strain of the changing colours all around you. The room looks rather comfy - chairs fashioned from the shifting crystals have padded seats, and you spy a computer on a desk, and books, cds and ornaments on the shelves of the walls. Looking up above you, you spot a ceiling of clear crystal, letting in the vibrant starlight above, with many colourful nebulae and constellations foreign to you.
While you're still taking in the room, a voice calls out to you.
"Sup. Your astral projections are only here for a brief moment, but I can interfere while your souls are in my study. I've just transported a chest in with things you may find... Useful. Select them quickly.
True to its word, a open chest has materialized in a rainbow glow. You look inside.
As you all take your items (Spiderpig included), the room fades away from you, the colors blending together and dulling to blackness. Yet, you still do not wake. You hear another voice, different.
"Greetings. The world you are about to 'return' to is... Heavily distorted. A temporal calamity has destroyed the continuity of the world. Someone... Meddled too much with the timeline, and broke reality before the heroes had a chance to stop them..."
A luminous silhouette forms before you.
"This world now only exists as single events. With continuity falling apart, the time between these events is unraveling. Only the strongest, most important events are holding strong. Through these events, maybe you can right the wrongs of this world... Or at least put everyone out of their misery."
"However, if you die in this world, millions will suffer as their very lives unravel in this distortion. I need to make sure you're up to the task, no matter how you save them. I won't let you leave this dream until you can defeat me."
"Remember to equip or use any items you need to prepare before engaging me."
