Listenin' to Theocracy!
This is the intro post to Tear in the Multiverses. If you have a character in any corresponding location as marked on your character sheet, your username will be tagged in that location. A brief intro is supplied for each location as well as the current time to give you the general setting. However, what your character will be doing is completely up to you!
Signups will remain open forever, so don't worry if you join late and DM me or use the Discord server if you have any questions!
Now let's get started!
(Side note: due to the size of the cast, replies from me might be short in length, perhaps a paragraph or two at most unless multiple player characters are grouped up. However, I'll do my best to make things interesting!)
Las Vegas, Nevada
The capital of gambling.
A smell of money in the air, nonstop traffic, lit-up hotels that fill the skyline like the entertainment industry's Christmas trees. Life here's got no breaks. Every waking moment, there's nothing but drinking, tossing dice, one night stands, and the roar of engines from the four bangers all the way up to the twelve cylinders. For some, this place is the best vacation spot in the world. Long as you've got a poker table to sit at and a martini to sip on, all your problems are gonna be left behind for the rest of the planet to deal with.
City's bright as it always is, and weaving between the cars cruising their way to the next luxury hotel are the tuner cars of the underground street racing gang. Probably searching for new recruits again. The presence of other-universe visitors here? High. Turns out the whole multiverse has a thing for gambling, believe it or not. You couldn't be an outcast here no matter how hard you tried.
The early city morning's yours to claim.
'cause out here in Sin City, you can do whatever it is you want.

When people think big cities in the United States, they think stuff like New York, Los Angeles, Chicago and all that. Fact of the matter is, the capital of Ohio's nothing to scoff at either. A fairly large city with a moderate amount of other-universe visitors plus less of the constant activity found in America's larger cities, you'll find such a good balance between peace and business in few other places. It's also the home of the Center of Science and Industry, so it's a fantastic place for science buffs to come visit.
The dawn's rising on a new day, and the morning rush hour is starting. Maybe you should get moving, too.

Manhattan, New York City
New York City is the largest city in the States by population, beating out Las Vegas by roughly ten times. Manhattan's its most densely packed borough out of the five in the city. It might not be as focused on fun as the gambling capital of the world, but as it is one of the most famous cities ever, you'll find no shortage of action here. Ever since the portals started opening, NYC has become home to one of the biggest concentration of out-of-universe stragglers in the world. The interaction between Earthlings and aliens have become daily routine, and you can even find talking animals helping out in the many small restaurants scattered around the streets.
Of course, with so many apples in the barrel, there's bound to be a spoiled few. There's an active criminal underground here being beaten back by an even more active group of vigilantes and heroes, many of which are not actually formal allies with each other except by incident and common enemy.
Welcome to Manhattan.

We could call this the New York City of Japan, but that'd be a lie. Tokyo's size completely dwarfs New York City. It's currently the largest city in the world for a reason. With over thirty million Earthlings in the world here plus the new population of offworld visitors, the streets might start to feel a little cramped. The institution of birth control laws, the limit on how many other-universe beings are allowed to be in the city at once, the construction of smaller floating cities that rest on the skyline of Japan, and the ongoing work to manipulate the portals opening to Earth to appear in designated spots outside of Tokyo among other new laws are the few fragile things keeping overpopulation from being a major problem here. Work still needs to be done to prevent it entirely, as even this is too little to be a major difference in the coming years.
However, characters from fiction tend to feel very welcome here. A lot of civilians give warm welcomes to the people and creatures from other universe by politely asking for pictures, and there are some very good chances you can find work here that isn't criminal in operation. That's not to say there isn't any trouble brewing beneath Tokyo; there certainly is. But things seem peaceful for now.
Prepare for lots of lights, awesome technology shared from around the multiverse, packed streets, rain, and if you don't know much about Japan, culture shock.

There are no other places in the world that provide such a wonderful break from humanity. The beauty of the Amazon Rainforest is nigh unrivaled, with millions of trees to have fun swinging around and climbing in and a bunch of shade to defend against the hot noon sun. The mass migration of several animals from other universes to here has resulted in a massive crackdown on deforestation laws around here and several attempts to safely incorporate these new breeds of fauna and flora into the ecosystem. So far, things have gone pretty well.
You'll meet few humans, if any, but many, and I mean many, animals. A lot of them speak, too.
Prosperity, New Zealand
A beacon of hope for a once hopeless people, this city was constructed by Dr. Electricus Von Tesla in 2015 in order to save his kind. In the span of five years, relations have gone very well between Prosperity and their new home country. They even have a defensive pact between each other. Maybe Tesla's people will grow in numbers and become whole again... but that might take a long time. However, they surely have a future made for them on this planet.
The moral of the story is, you can always trust a Kiwi.
Serengeti National Park, Tanzania
5,700 square miles of nothing but beautiful wildlife sanctuary makes this one of the greatest spots for fauna on Earth. Ever since the merge, the various animals that were forced onto Earth have been relocated to places such as the Serengeti National Park with incredible caution so as to not wildly disturb the ecosystem. Thankfully, there's been few major incidents since 2015 and the sanctuary has recovered from most of them. You'll find a lot of animals here larger than the ones in the Amazon Rainforest, some of which might be more deadly. Surprisingly, its annual wildebeest migration has remained completely intact, so go and see that when you get the chance.
A city from the United States' young days, Pittsburgh is small but mighty! The population of characters from around the multiverse is unusually high here due to the peace it promises, though the city's population even between them and the Earthlings has yet to even approach the millions. This is a perfect place to settle down and be accepted by the Earthlings while living a relatively quiet life compared to the larger cities of the world. You won't be bothered too much, and you'll have a few great attractions to see. Don't expect much action here and enjoy the stillness and history!
