You awake to the sound of dripping. Your body feels unstable, almost.. melting. When you open your eyes, you see for a moment that your body is an incomprehensible mass of ink and paint. But as soon as you notice it, the sensation stops and you revert back to normal, solid and just as you were before this strange incident happened. Confusion doesn’t stop there, when you look up you realize that this clearly isn’t your home. Or your world.
Welcome to Ink City, a mish-mash of realities and worlds compressed into one big playground of possibilities. The buildings here are all different, not just in color and architecture- but in style. And the people are the same way. Everything here is unique and forced to intermingle; but despite the vast differences, it all balances out.
You notice a strange communication device laying on the ground nearby. Turn it on, and you’ll get to know the others who’ve stumbled out of the inkwell like yourself and become trapped in the city. Form communities, have adventures, make friends... or you can try and find your way home, past the omnipresent mountain barrier called “The 4th Wall”. Variety is the norm in this town, it’s up to you to find your place.
This is a text-based roleplay game made primarily for cartoon characters, which means western cartoon, anime/manga, comic book, web comic/animation, video game and animated film characters are all allowed. As long as it can count as being a cartoon character in some form, they’re fine! And don’t be fooled by the game’s name, even if your character isn’t made with ink or paint, they’re plenty welcome too!
Check the FAQ and Locations/Settings entries before you join, to get to know the world of this game a little better. After you’ve familiarized yourself a bit with the story, fill out an application here and we’ll help you get situated!
Show RESPECT, peeps! Treat people the way you want to be treated, and don’t start up drama. This is a place to have fun and make friends, not enemies!
Try to keep it PG-13, you guys. We’re pretty relaxed with this rule, though. Violence is a staple of animation, and is very easily tolerated. Cursing is perfectly fine as well. However, sexual action will NOT be accepted. This isn’t a smut game, if things get out of hand, you’ll be given a warning. It’s best to just take it somewhere else, please. (:
NO GODMODDING. Don’t control other people’s characters, and ask for permission before you do anything drastic to another character. (Death, violent attacks, mind wiping, etc.) This is common courtesy, please show respect to the other players and make sure that things like this are agreed upon beforehand.
You’ll be given three warnings before you get banned from the game. You will receive a warning if you: Break the no-sex rule, stir up unnecessary drama and upset people out of character, or godmod over ther people’s characters.
Alternate Universe versions of characters are allowed!
OCs are allowed, but they still have to be able to count as a cartoon in some way.
If you have some problems you need to bring to my attention, go to the chatroom or contact one of the mods on AIM or private messages. We’re all happy to help! But please keep in mind that we can’t devote my constant attention 24/7 to this place (We have lives too!), so you’ll have to excuse late replies and such.
Most importantly, have fun, and try to keep active! The game can’t stay alive unless you play a part!
