NEW SAVE FILE

The dust settles, and the world's been broken apart.

Final Destination City was once a bustling place, famous for Smash Academy, a school that trained the elite in fighting, defense, basic calculus, and more. Now the land is splintered. A series of floating islands is all that remains, drifting through time and space. Now the people that find the place, willingly or not, must not only train themselves, but rebuild their fragmented home.

Smash Rising is a Super Smash Bros. based game for video game characters of all systems and origins. Want Goku to finally fight Mario and Sonic? Budokai counts, bring him along! We also accept video-game-based OCs like the Dragonborn, your Animal Crossing mayor, or a Goomba you've given a backstory to. No intricate Smash Bros. knowledge required.

We're an exploration game with slice-of-life elements, with character interactions developing the world around them. It's on their heads to keep their new home running smoothly while they work towards their goals, be it getting whatever it is they desire by dominating in tournaments or simply returning to where they came from.

SUGGESTION BOX



This is a post where you can suggest either plot ideas, or anything you'd think would be fun to either improve the game, suggestions for events that you'd like to see happen or an event that YOU'D like (or like to see the mods) to run, and so on! We can't promise we'll make every single plot happen or reply to every post, but we absolutely do read everything that is posted here and take everything that is said into consideration. We'll do our best to accommodate everyone's ideas and concerns, and make this game better than ever before.

You can suggest anything you like, even that crazy dream you had one time, even things you think would never pass. If not here, we will also suggest that you toss up plot/game ideas into this month's Personals Post, as that is more of a public venue.

You can also use this post if you have comments about the game in general (things you think should be changed, added, taken away, etc.) or player concerns.

Anonymous comments are on (or you can post logged in) and all comments are screened by default, so this will be 100% confidential with us unless you want it otherwise. Feel free to mark your posts with "Reply to me with my comment still screened", "Reply to me in a pm", or "Make this post public if you wish."

Thanks a lot for your words, we really appreciate it!

APPLICATIONS 2016



APPLICATIONS FOR THE CURRENT WEEK ARE REVIEWED FRIDAYS.

UNLESS THERE IS A DELAY... which we'll typically announce. There are no application cycles in Smash! Send in applications whenever you want.
Note: We do not review apps in chronological order, but last-minute applications submitted at the buttcrack of midnight Friday might not get reviewed until the following week, so please be patient.

If you want to make sure no one else apps the character you are thinking of, head on over to the reserves first.


Before you apply or hit "post"...

  • Read our rules. Acceptable Series, FAQ and Premise couldn't hurt either.

  • Take a look at our application guidelines! This outlines what we expect in an application, and gives some inspiration and pointers if you're having trouble!

  • Look at the taken list to make sure the character you want isn't already taken.

  • Copy and use the application form that fits your character, whether they are returning, getting an update, or are brand new.

  • Spell check, spell check, spell check.

  • You may post a link to your application or post it in comment chunks. DW has a maximum character limit of 16,000 per comment, so that's quite generous and you'll probably be able to fit your app in just one or two comments! Here is a handy character count checker to see if that's the case.

  • You may rehash old applications or samples so long as YOU are the one that wrote them. We may ask for a new, more setting-applicable sample, or if we are unclear on the character's voice/personality, however. If you plagiarize, you will be banned.

  • Pokemon are allowed only two per player, and no more than three of the same kind at the same time.

PUT YOUR QUARTER ON THE MACHINE




Before you reserve or hit "post"...


    ● Double check the acceptable series. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask us.

    Rules. Just read 'em one more time. FAQ and Premise couldn't hurt either.

    ● Each reserve lasts two weeks. Reserves will lock your character in place for you and give you priority when we review.

    ● If you wish to get an extension, please ask before your time is up, otherwise it will be refused. The extension lasts for an additional week for a total of three weeks. Please talk to a mod if there is an extenuating circumstance where you might require more time.

    ● Unlike the app page, with the reserve page you are ALLOWED AND ENCOURAGED to post reactions and talk with your castmates! The player might have something else planned, different from what you do. Sometime this can make for a fun conflict! Sometimes it can be awkward. So it is a good idea to try and get in contact with your potential castmates! Most players aren't shy and would love to help you out. Plan things right here before the app gets sent in or just keysmash, be excited and welcoming, it's all good.

    ● Every now and then we'll clean out the old reserves, so if you see old ones disappear, we're just screening them so the page looks cleaner. If you'd like to see an old one in particular again for whatever reason, just ask a mod and we'll be glad to help you out.

    ● Remember, Pokemon are allowed, but only two per player and three of the same species in the game at any one time!

    ● Once you are ready to post your application, head on to the application post here.



● This is also the page to ask for your additional slot requests. Please post links showing your activity. Three to four samples per character with recent (the past two to three months) should be sufficient. Each player gets five slots from the get go. You are allowed to app three when you join the game, the fourth and fifth can be apped two weeks afterwards. If we feel you have not been active enough recently, we might tell you to play more before allowing you to app an additional character. This also applies for sixth and seventh slot requests.

RESERVE FORM

The textarea box is normal to have. This is to make it easier for us to copy in the reserve list! Please keep it, it's not a mistake.

HOUSE POINTS; standings + submissions






Gleaming and glinting beneath the lights, they're usually the most eye-catching fixtures in the mansion's foyer. Four glass columns, intricately woven with ornate brass fixtures with each its own designs. Smooth, different colored gems pooled into their confines from seemingly no where. Each day there was a bit more, but not always in all of them. House points were collected here, free for all to observe.
