Dashnet City (SIGN-UPS OPEN)

Basically, the title. I haven't 100% carved out the world we'll be in, but I have time for lore-building during the game, K?

---

We're all living in Dashnet City. 20XX. The forum game business, mostly run by Brainstorm Incorporated, is perhaps the most successful and profitable business in the city - partially due to how little the city has in it for entertainment otherwise. A new cinema is opening today, though, so that's nice.
YOU ͢AL͜L ͟KNOW ̷I'M̨ HE͡RE͠,͡ ̡DO̡Ǹ'T ͜YǪU?
But all is not right here. Secrets are behind every corner. The mysterious disappearances of multiple well-known members of the community have remained unsolved, and the activity of the city itself has gradually died down. This whole city could very well come crashing down, if we don't protect it.

You don't know much about what's going on. All you know is, something weird as fuck is happening - something you discover during the grand opening of the cinema. And you - we - are going to put a stop to it.

Application below.

Username: Just your forum name.
Element: You will gain powers based on your element when the games begin.
Preferred Weapon: You will start with a weak version of your preferred weapon when the games begin.

Character insights.

#01 - ShadowofReverse
You might remember me having a dream about a shadow RiR. That's where the idea started - the idea of me having my own "dark side," a side that I hid. However, in it's original form, it was very, very different. I had the idea of him being a manipulator. Someone who would pretend to he's your friend, but really, you're a mere stepping stone on the path to his own glory. He'd pull the strings, without ever making it apparent that he's not a good guy. The ideas behind "Shadow RiR" 1.0 put away eventually, with me getting an entirely different idea of who they were, and after creating this RP I decided to put them into a different character.

The change was rapid and dramatic. Shadow RiR - or, as he was called now, ShadowofReverse - became . . . alarmingly close to Chara. He was a glitch in the system, not meant to exist, but he did anyway. He'd kill whoever got in his way gleefully and for no other reason but because he could. I'd represent the order, and he, the chaos. His appearance had to change as well - he became a glitched, distorted version of me, placed in near-monochrome, like you see in his profile picture. But that felt too . . . bland. So I changed him again.

The final form of ShadowofReverse kept his glitchy, broken aesthetic, but became someone who liked playing games with his victims - a twisted form of myself enjoying forum games/video games. If you survive one of his games, you could just earn his respect; if so, he won't want to kill you so easily. He doesn't, however, respect me in any way. He sees me as a weakling, not embracing who I really am - supposedly, he is what I should be, but I am what I've become. He still loves bloodshed and death, though he prefers to play with his victims first. This is what he's become now.

The File Corruption he suffers from is something that just popped into my head one day as a weakness because he was getting kinda OP; when he suffers from one of his "glitch surges," he's essentially out of commission for 5-10 minutes. Enough time to get away, or even to finish him off if you're willing. Not to mention the incredible pain he suffers from when a "glitch surge" hits. It also might generate a level of remorse for him(no matter how low that level actually is), which will tie into future events.
Current status: Could be much better, really.

    No specific gun models. Just vague types(i.e. Shotgun, Pistol, Assault Rifle, etc.)

    Element: Is Boundary still not a valid element? How bout Paradox? No? Okay, ESP.
    Weapon: When all I have is a Hammer...

    There's no actual stat systems. Element/Weapon is just to determine what you actually have.

    Also, bonus points for putting "RunninginReverse Productions" hidden in the arrow tag things.

    And, finally, can you tell me what in the fuck is ESP?

    I-I'll see if I can figure out a power based on Alcohol . . . But just in case I don't, can you please pick a backup element?

    Other than that, approved . . . I guess? ((No fish empire, though.))

    Accepted, for flamethrower. Hand phaser is a big no, as energy weapons(at least how I'm understanding, it is one) are going to be end-tier gear.

    Y'know, Extrasensory Perception? Psychic stuff? I had Kirby in mind when I chose that one, but if either Boundary or Paradox are allowed as an element, I'd like those much better.
    (Of course, I can always explain what I mean by that.)

    Boundary: The fuck do I do with that?
    Paradox: . . . Are you even 100 percent sure you know what a paradox is? Shit like that why universes get destroyed sometimes.
    Psychic stuff: Sure.

    NOW you're approved.

    Well, paradoxes aren't more than self-contradictory propositions. It doesn't have to be anything universe-shattering or the like. Just... Illogical.

    Boundaries? Exactly that. Something that indicates the limit between two things. Both are pretty much concepts, when you think about it.
    On a very basic level, it could be manipulation of distances. A portal, of you will.
    Something more extreme? How about expanding the limits of what is humanly possible, like reflexes faster than sound or surviving in space?
    (Something tells me you're gonna label this as "too OP")

    Psychic stuff: Sure.

    NOW you're approved.

    I thought so. Okay. Psychic it is.

    Gonna pass around powers and weapons now. They're gonna start off very weak, but will grow stronger as this progresses.

    @Brainstorm You're gifted with the ability to communicate with lingering souls, given they are present. You start with a Rusty AB-3 Assault Rifle as your weapon.

    @Vini You can lift objects with ESP. You can't lift things too heavy or lift actual people, but you can lift things like that chair or those knives with no real problems. You start with a Rusty Construction Hammer as your weapon.

    @Sirfish You can literally get someone partway-drunk with the snap of your fingers. The effect wears off quick, however, and they'll be immune for a little bit after it wears off. You start with a Rusty Smith & Wesson 327PD as a weapon.

    @Lava_Entity You can withstand extreme heat without issue. A perfect combination with your flamethrower, I say. You start with a Rusty M1A1 Flamethrower.

    These are the lowest quality weapons you can get in the game. All very antique weapons, partially rusted over. Who knows, though. You'll probably all get better eventually. ((No hard stats on these, just rough power levels.))

    Now, we all ready? TO ̷D̷I̡E?!
