So you've died. Sorry to hear that. But don't worry. Unlike most people, death isn't the end for you. Instead of surrendering to the nothingness after death (or waking up in heaven, if that's your thing) you wake up in another world. Another world where you have a second chance at life. Where you're free of responsibilities and nobody can tell you what to do. Maybe you can even make some new friends. After all, you're not the only one who woke up here and if you don't like them the locals are friendly and nice. It's perfect.

And yet... for some reason, something feels off. Even if you don't notice it initially, there's something wriggling at the back of your mind, telling you that something's wrong. But what.

GM Note: Hello friends. Welcome to Isekai: Trapped in Another World a Roleplay where you're trapped in another world. Look, I wanted to go with a self-referential title okay and this sounded way better than just calling it Isekai. So, yeah, the intro basically says it all. You died, you wake up in another world, everything's great, standard Isekai stuff. But also, something feels off. Maybe your character notices it immediately, maybe they don't. Who knows.

Ooh, potentially interested! What type of “something off” we thinking? Is it different for everyone?
If so, I’d like to explore having my character be seen by everyone in the world as a villain, when they are in fact a hero. It could give an interesting conflict, such as whether to continue on the heroic path or to live up to the world’s expectations and become a villain.

My original idea was essentially that the world seems determined to convince the people trapped there to stay. Not in the normal way of "This world is awesome because that's how Isekai work" but more in a "The world itself is potentially malevolent and wants you to stay and will try to do it subtly but if you push too hard it will actively attempt to prevent you from leaving."

I don't have an exact reason why the world is like this but I'm working on it and this is a collaborative effort anyways.

I'm also planning on using this same concept for a personal story but that'll be completely different from this RP. So if you see a show on TV that uses a similar concept, that's me.

Hmm… sounds pretty interesting! I think I’ll still stick with the “world sees you as a villain but you try to be a hero” thing, but I’d love that conflict as well!

Actually not that spooky

This actually sounds pretty awesome. Consider me interested!

We could combine both.
To clarify, my thought is that for some reason, the world has decided it's method of forcing your character to stay is to have the locals (and maybe trick some of the other characters) believe that your character is the bad guy and have a drive to capture them.

Interesting little plot here, but I must ask one thing. what Kind of world is it? As in what kind of setting should we suspect? Ancient city states? Medieval kingdons? Etc.
Oh, did I forget to mention that. It's sort of a quirky fantasy world. My main inspiration world-wise was a light novel (or rather, it's anime adaptation) called "I've Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years and Maxed Out My Level" (damn that's a mouthful. Someone needs to hold an intervention for all the Light Novel writers who use long titles) but also I never actually finished it so who knows what sort of things'll happen (also gonna nix the vague rpg mechanics).

tl;dr: It's a weird medieval fantasy world.
