ULTIMATE FANTASY: COSMIC REALM: HOME OF FREE-PLAYERS: In an effort to accommodate free-play and creative thinkers who do not wish to be bound by stories, rules, guidelines, and plots developed by the Game Masters of the Ultimate Fantasy Community, a new realm has been created. Referred to as the Cosmic Realm, or the Realm of Free-Play, this thread is specifically designed for players and members of the Ultimate Fantasy to play without fear of persecution or judgement from Game Masters, except by those parties in their capacity as beings that control the cosmos, that is, as in-character gods and creators and managers of the universe that we have available to us to explore and make of as we please. The usual rules to the Ultimate Fantasy Community apply, except that all bios for characters that are not gods, will be accepted. All you need to do is post them. That said, should you wish to play within this realm, you participate knowing that you might fall prey to one of the Game Master incarnations through their characters. The purpose here is to allow players to wield tremendous IC and OOC power and freedom to do as they please, within reason. There are virtually no limitations on magic, physical ability and the like. The only restriction is that you accept what fate comes before you. By posting within this thread, you agree to as much, and are more than happy to explore the avenues of near limitless power and ability, knowing that such attributes might be revoked from you at any time, for whatever reason. Please note that posts will be limited to only three per user per twenty four hours, and restricted to a maximum of 100 words. That includes bios. Given the severe nature of this thread and it's potential for bedlam, I encourage you not to get carried away because the forum Moderator(s) will not hesitate to lock this thread, remove posts, or otherwise put an end to this opportunity for exploration and free play. AUGUSTIOUSILLAIN - REALM OF THE GODS - THE GREAT MOUNTAIN There were realms and peoples more diverse and widespread than could be conjured by even the most wild imaginations. Illuthorin, Master of the Universe and the Cosmos, the King of gods and Great Judge, was content with the creation of all things. Good and Evil struggled for dominance, just as Life was in conflict with Death, as Love was with War, and all other manner of powers, spirits, beings, entities and things. From the pinnacle of Augustiousillian, the Great Mountain and home of the gods, Illuthorin watched over the Realms of the Universe. There were four Realms that drew his particular watch. He was, after all, the Keeper of Balance. First was the Realm of Light and Life, where Goodness thrived, people prospered and Love blossomed. Second, was the Realm of Darkness and Death, where Evil festered, demons reigned and War engulfed all things. Third, was the cosmic bastille, an enormous prison land, inescapable and plagued by outcasts and misfits alike. Finally, there was the waking world, where beings lived freely, without cosmic powers among them. Travel between worlds was near impossible, and for good reason. Only the powers that guarded these four realms were able to grant passage to or from the place over which they had been assigned. Illuthorin, Keeper of Balance and creator of all things, possessed the infinite burden, or pleasure, though he saw it as neither of the two, of overseeing all realms, with attributes and abilities of his own to rival even the mightiest of his fellow gods. So it was that they accepted his authority, for his power and influence was such that he never favoured Good over Evil or Love over War. He simply accepted the Way of the Cosmos, and enforced Balance to ensure it.
