Title: Coryn's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Canon
Post by: Coryn on July 24, 2011, 04:00:40 PM
I present to you the MR Canon Guide! Let it be your gateway to the MR universe and all of its inhabitants.

Previously at home throughout this topic, the guide has been restructured and can be accessed via Google docs, a free program by Google which is available on all devices. The guide should be accessible to anyone with the link, regardless of whether you have a Google account or not.

But first, a quick breakdown!

In the main folder you will find a document explaining the general rules and information about MR Canon. This is the only document that applies to all of canon as a whole. Besides it you will find a series of folders, one for each Universe which we have data available on.

Each universe folder is then separated as such: Timeline, Stories, Characters, Geography, and Groups. This set up will remain constant with each universe explored, and new categories will be added as deemed necessary.

I hope you all enjoy the new guide! As always feel free to come to me if you have questions or suggestions!

Yo Coryn, I was just wondering... Since Dystopic Blades also involves MR members, shouldn't it be in this list too? It's not exactly a canon of the MR universe, but you know. It does have some MR members.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon
Post by: Coryn on July 27, 2011, 02:44:27 PM
yes dystopic was one i was throwing around in my head. i eventually decided to conclude it but i've just yet to do so
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon
Post by: legomaestro on July 27, 2011, 03:07:58 PM
Well strictly speaking it isn't a cannon because of the coryn part and the fact that the characters are only avatars of you guys. They're 'based on' MR characters, not representatiosn of them themselves.

I'll change the coryn part later, but now that i think of it it could be left out.

I like the character thing. The way you set this up really makes the MR universe interesting, as if it needed its own Wikipedia page or something. Or no, its very own wikia. I guess I might take the time and write another short MR based story, if I get the time.

And I can't wait to see what you're planning to do with the -Tans. So many epic things are going through my mind at the moment, I just need to know what you're gonna do! >.>

another thought purrhaps. thinking of adding bios for the mods and admins. since they are pretty well constants in the MR universe. thoughts on this? biggest issue is i don't want to portray anybody inaccurately. so it would be best to get multiple perspectives.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Tostificer on September 27, 2011, 02:43:04 PM
Sounds cool. Since everyone has a pretty accurate knowledge of the mods and admins in MR I think you can make a bio we'd all agree on.

I guess you could indeed add art (if existant) to it, I'm guessing just the Tans and some of the drawings made by doodle would be applicable.

Oh man, I totally loved every piece of it. Especially Sai's thing, with the skeletons in the closet and the being afraid of him. Where'd that come from anyway?

And also, can Doodle really freak out with the power of a thousand beautiful suns?

Other than that, maybe some other time, you can also add the bios of the lesser members? Maybe those with the highest rank only, or only those who are active enough. Ya know.

Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coryn on December 12, 2011, 05:24:47 PM
suuuuuuuup

so. this idea has been mentioned but so far i have been to lazy to deal with it. so i thought to myself: How do i do bio's for other members, with as little energy as possible? which leads me to my point. I'm going to let you guys write your own bios. this kills two birds with one stone. Get's the bio's done. and assures that they're spot on for you guys.

Before any of you rush off there are some rules and expectations for the sake of quality.

1. Only members who are both hero members and have been here for at least 6 months may apply. This is to assure that only dedicated members get included. It's not about favoritism or knocking on the little guys. But as you guys know members have a tendency to disappear. So with this criteria we should end up with only members who have both been around a while, but also have actually contributed to the site.

2. Expectations. If you're reading this I assume you've already read the guide. So you probably have a general idea of what these bio's should contain. Either way let me break it down for you.

a) Your name. And by that i mean your forum handle not your real one, any and all nicknames would be useful as well.

b) Physical appearance. Again don't feel pushed for an accurate real life description. Shoot for the sort of avatar you want people to view you as. Don't get too crazy with it. Like we know you aren't a demon god with massive bat wings all the time. So don't say you are. Some alterations are of course allowed *cough*lego*cough*, and of course be sure to include any alternate forms *cough*lego*cough*

c) Personality. This should be pretty self explanatory. But also include your roll on the forum to this end. How you view others and how they seem to view you. Remember that this is all revolving around the idea that we live in a city together on the internet. So you should keep that in mind. Think about how you would operate in the city. what you do on a daily basis and what your haunts would be.

d) Combat. There isn't an MR story out there where someone doesn't kill something or someone else. So remember to include weapons, fighting styles, and any special abilities.

e) Other. If there's a little bit of interesting info you'd like to include. Feel free to throw it in. Just don't make a page out of it.


Right. One big point i'd like to make is on length. keep it in the 2-3 paragraph range. Short and sweet. Relatively. You can see how long the already existing ones are so try and keep to that length. The goal is to keep an equality so as not to squash other people with your own info. This is not to accuse so much as it is to keep people from getting carried away.

Lastly i will be sure to update your profiles upon reception of new info. And i'll add anything i think might be pertinent.

So yeh. go out be merry and write bios. I'll add them in as they come.

Post by: legomaestro on December 12, 2011, 11:52:07 PM

well to be fair you are already in by default. Just being on MR is technically enough. Having a bio here will just help those writing MR stories to utilize you as a character easier and with greater efficiency. And it will still be up to the individual writers to decide whether to use you or not.

Post by: legomaestro on December 13, 2011, 11:18:39 AM
Legomaestro- Position: Hero Member. Legomaestro, nicknamed Lego (though he secretly wished to be known as maestro... *hint* *hint...*) He's a bespectacled afro-haired african who's always sporting a black trenchoat and various other clothing as he see's fit. He's a grim person and to date the only humour he's provided for MR is by being at the butt end of jokes.

He has a shifting personality, which fits him well as he is known to suddenly be a green-skinned alien cat, who also has a trenchoat. His name was also given due to this ever-shifting personality.

Lego does not really have a fighting style/method, and sends out multitudes of minions in his stead to test out the perfect combat ability. However, he is currently impartial to a single black nano-katana. He's also been known to wield quite the arsenal of handguns, and his energy/reiatsu/essence is blue. Technically, Legomaestro is an adept hacker, though this has not been explored much.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Tostificer on December 13, 2011, 12:27:06 PM
Tostificer- Position: Hero Member. Making his first appearance in MR Sentai, Tostificer (or rather Toasty) is one of the more active members on MR. His appearance varies in every story, although he usually goes by wearing ordinary clothes, usually a hipster-like (he has also been seen wearing a classic suit including top hat and monocle, some sort of power ranger costume, pirate clothes and a large black armor). He isn't the cleverest, although he can assess situations and react to them very quickly. Also, it seems luck is not often on his side.

Toasty's fighting style usually involves carrying around a large sniper with unnecessary powerful ammo. He is fully capable of working as a team with the rest of the members, especially under lead of Doodler. Then again, all the members are.

Kite- Position: Hero Member. Though he recently left for indefinite time and for unknown reasons, he remains in our hearts. He is known for loving lolis and booze, and is often distracted by hentai during missions. The other members don't seem to mind very much though.

Kite is a legend when it comes to using explosives, which seems to be his best quality. He seems to always carry an arsenal of them around or by luck find one hidden somewhere near him, for him to use.


I took the liberty to write a bio for Kite too, since I don't think he'll be doing any soon. You might want to add some stuff to that though, since it's not really long and you know him longer than I do.

Nyosan-position : Hero Member, using code name ktry246 before. he is a spy with straight black hair who always using casual cloth and glasses in his human form, has animal form of wolf when there need to fight known as the last werewolf race. always respect anyone and don't like fighting too much.

his fighting style involves hand to hand combat and his high agility, as a spy he always check the situation before fight.

That was talked about on skype. But it involved raiders from EU having to cross the friggin atlantic to get to the US to meet up for possibly just a couple of days with strangers who they know from the internet. Try to explain that to your parents.

Well here is my character description for lego's new Mr Canon. It's basically the same description I use in the nuances of battle topic.

Name: Fronomenal

Appearance: A light skinned black male. Usually seen around the city wearing a very stylish black and white leather jacket usually worn unzipped, a black plain t-shirt under the jacket, loose black jeans, two gauntlet gloves, one black and one white, and black and white gym-shoes.

Personality: A very laid-back and comical raider. He tends to crack jokes a lot and even troll at times. He has a very bad habit of contradicting himself and often changes his mind about things very frequently. Overall, Fro is a very nice raider, who loves to help when help is needed.

Is that good enough for you lego?

Post by: legomaestro on October 24, 2012, 07:29:09 PM
It works nicely, especially since i guessed a lot of that. Your description i didn't get yet, because i'm not familiar with all the other raider's outfits and it wasn't appropriate, but you did troll me. What's your weapon by the way? Is it an afro comb or the hair?
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coach Fro on October 24, 2012, 07:43:12 PM
The hair mostly. It has the ability to take the form of anything I want it too as long as I have the energy for it. So the pick wouldn't be necessary. However, just a quick note, my character likes to fights with his fist (which is why he wears the gauntlet gloves) and only uses the Afro powers when he deems it necessary.

The seamless way you weave the stuff into canon is great, and yes, i do worry about finding the details fast enough. It may be better to go google doc on this business.

I'll write up my new description soon as well. Tis a bit out of date.

Reminder to all raiders! The more canon we have, the more details we have on the city. MR is a mystery to us as much as you, help us develop it!

i feel like making an MR canon. O.O can i make an MR mythical legend? like a person who we here about in rumor but we know nothing about them more than what the rumors tell us. can i make that, cause i had an idea for a story about a samurai who carries six swords and fights with all of them. it wont be an actual member but something more along the lines of being like minecrafts creeper. Its a coding in MR and became its own being. it is basically the thing that weeds out all rude, mean, evil, and bad members of MR. it could also be that thing that censors all the swearing and what not.

Can i do that? O.o

Well since the tans are named after what they represent (MR-tan, Pub-tan) I can see where we could run into a problem.

Ecchi-tan and World-tan?

E1 and E2?

We'd have to keep explaining that second one.

I vote for Ecchi-tan and Lewd-tan.


Once we pick names though, Lego you should probably be the one to attribute them to each twin, since you're the one who created them.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: legomaestro on February 24, 2013, 09:31:44 PM
Lewd tan it is then

I think that title probably will go to the more casual-former 'older' sister. I suppose the more interesting thing to do would be to put a twist and make the timid one have that name but i think it would be more convenient that way.

Also, quick question, does MR City has like its own life force. Like is it possible for someone to use MR as a source of energy? The reason why I'm asking is because I had this random canon idea of Mad scientist Coryn teaching all of the raiders how to utilize MR as a energy source and earn new powers as a result. Hope this doesn't sound confusing.

Post by: Coryn on April 21, 2013, 11:29:19 PM
Well it's a yes and no sort of thing. In terms of MR Canon, our whole universe, (the internet), is made up of data, code, electrical impulses. While we are selves are still to some extent human? Sort of like users in tron. They're still flesh and blood, but they're still in a digital form. So to sum that up, what has been shown in the past is raiders weaponizing the code of MR itself. But this power is restricted. The admins, MR-tan, and the other tans to a lesser extent have the power to control the code, and the mods have specific powers granted by the code, but in general regular members can't touch it. The masses just work off their own various ways of doing things. We all have the freedom to channel different energies and powers at our discretion.


In total: Yes, MR does essentially have its own life force in its code. But regular members can't access it.


Darling Be Home Soon does sort of talk about this idea as well, if you haven't read that story.



@mangaDuDe- You don't make an MR character, you already are a character in the canon. You have been since the day you showed up. But you are perfectly allowed to give a synopsis of yourself.

yus i been waitin fer dis lol

...

here it is
manga DuDe: sr. member refereed to as md or DuDe sometimes. mds personality changes more often then his underwear but most times he is curios, joking around, or insane not really the traditional definition but more of a psyco path really. he wear a verity of clothing not really picky but has a loos tied bow tie on always with what he wears ,dress, power ranger, etc. but usually seen in usual clothes and a odd hoody that has CHAA printed on the front of it. at times md can be really weird for lack of any other way to put it really. he likes to join in on adventures sometimes he even helps (key word sometimes).

DuDe fights well kinda ranged but not really hmm it's like this md is able to make countless clones of himself and they blow up on impact with anything heavyer then a feather falling on them at one point md was drug to a random void during a mortal combat fight and was able to learn to condense his clones( it takes about 20 clones to do so) in to a orb that can blow a hole threw time and space temp. but he does not do this often becuse coryn flips out ery tim he does it even if he jus saved every body noooo it bad to blow a hole in space and time blah blah blah.

General Paipis: Form 1: A calculating intel-gatherer who seems to know things without explanation. Usually carries a pencil and a notepad. Caucasian with medium-length black hair; black, metal-framed, rectangular glasses; thick eyebrows, and a deep voice. Usually wearing a white long sleeve shirt with a guitar design, sleeves rolled up and jeans.

Form 2: The ruthless musical fighter. Looks the same, except hair is shoulder-length, face unshaven (five o'clock shadow), glasses tinted, and shirt is black with red design. Plays a guitar with mystic qualities. Different sounds on the guitar will affect Paipis' environment differently.

Burgundy: Paipis' pet bear who turns in to a monkey during long-ish dialogue sequences.

^Er... is this addressed to Coryn's project "Beta"? or the MR Universe Guide? Because the MR Universe wasn't created solely by Coryn (it was a cumulative thing), nor is it any one particular style. Beta just happens to be Coryn's homestuck-esque installment of the canon. The MR Canon is meant to be a Canon for multiple writers and artists, in multiple styles, not just homestuck.

Yeah, I'm not sure where you're going with this. I mean so far there is homestuck style art created for those actually IN beta, but otherwise there's no real point in creating it for everyone, at least in relation to the general canon.

I mean it'd be cool if there was a topic especially for homestuck style fan arts, but there's no real connecting between MR canon and that.

Alright, thought to stick these in, as it will hopefully clear up some of the issues and questions from the past.

RULES OF MR CANON:
1. What is in the guide is law. If you're story does not conform to the existing guide, it will be deemed "Non-canon".
2. If you do not know something or are confused: Read the guide.
3. If you do not know something or are confused and the guide does not answer your question: Ask Coryn.
4. If you do not know something or are confused and the guide nor Coryn were able to provide an answer: Make it up.

As Lego said, there is only one story that references Homestuck at all. And so far it's not even canon as it's yet to be completed.

Though I disagree with your opinion that we shouldn't standardize the canon. Aside from the fact that it already took place long before you got here, "What's past is prologue." after all. Perhaps it puts some restrictions to the canon, but it also actually makes it a work by all of us, and not just a random collection of loosely related stories.

I remember toasty was a bit uncomfortable about the canon thing and I understand it can feel like shackles and be daunting. It's not really supposed to be like that at all actually. You're still free to use at least me as a character if it's not accurate it'll just be non-canon, like a side episode or filler episode. I for one would still enjoy it so long as i find it good, so don't worry too much.

So sad but true I suppose. But you have to imagine the first days of it, a bare universe, a whole forum of people creating it together. Infinite possibilities, and we landed here.

But really, if you don't like it, you don't have to write about it. If you like writing fan fiction, but hate Harry Potter, then don't write Harry Potter fan fiction, I guess is all I'm saying.

The best way i think would be for you to not worry about this stuff and just go with what you want. If you want it to really be canon we can discuss it then.

I think at first mostly the canon was to put a face to the usernames. Using only a username and gender (if even that is provided) wasn't enough to show the character of any members on MR. and some members prefer to look like something.

To make an extreme example someone could take a glance at my username and depict me as a white european bald guy which would be a bit... off mark don't you think?

But really, just go ahead and write what you like canon or non-canon can be worried about after the fact. Can't say or decide anything if there's nothing there yet.

it just seems sad. "this is our thing, made by old MRs, for MRs" you can try to, or you don't have to."

you trying to pass it off as if its a choice, and it is. but the choice is, do what you want to be part of it or do your own thing and not be part of the circle. So someone elses work (despite how good it is) wont be recognized by MR, because its not in the MR universe.

I think you're adding implications to our words that just aren't there.

There is no 'circle' here. If you don't write an MR canon you are no less a part of the forum and if you do you are no more apart of the forum. All members standing as equals after all.

You can write a story about MR, and it can still be a good story that people will read and enjoy, but yes, if it doesn't mean the set criteria it will not become a part of the official canon as it was set down. I am sorry that you are offended that we're taking the word of old members as law, but you don't throw out the constitution because everyone who wrote it is dead.

There are still plenty of things that can be explored in terms of MR canon, but if you don't want that's fine, you're no less one of us.


Though really, I think that's all there is to say on the subject. I doubt either of us are going to change the other's mind where it comes to how we should deal with MR canon.

yes i did actually. not being accepted here, and not adding room for freedom here seems to be as if it was spat and kicked under the rug because the story wants to be accepted here.

its like those who created this are the club owners and the bouncer at the same time. the bouncer side says "this is law" the club owner part is ignorant of how much it hurts to not be part of it because their already in and life of the party.

is it such a stretch? this is created by the founders after all and some older members. its what separates canon.

that maybe not how you see it. but you should be able to understand how others see it at least.

this "constitution" wasn't made for long term. it was made for fun and for that time. even real life non-metaphor constitutions/rules get  (right to bear arms? or electoral college

You can be a part of the canon though. Just read the guide to get the information from the universe. It's a cumulative thing. It can seem restricting, but it's really the whole fun of it. You get to write a book in this series that has been going on almost as long as this site has. What you write will become another stone that future MR generations will build on. But for it to be in the same series, it has to be consistent with the books before it; otherwise it can't be considered in the same series. That's not club rules, that's logic. Not to mention, you can add whole other elements to be explored, and you don't have to explore or even reference every existing element of the MR universe, as long as something doesn't directly contradict it.

Honestly, the only reason I haven't written an MR story yet is because I don't want to leave Dream Library and not be able to come back to it.

oh and if its not canon, it wont be acepted, because obviously, this idea is meant to be canon. so either you take what u can get and be part of it, or you can't.


don't you think its missing the point of canon if the "canon" part isn't really story related but just characters and other mascots? and if you use literally the minimal (basically 1 character or just the name MR) then don't you think it defeats the purpose???

I just want to point out that you literally can make any story you want. I introduce an element (A device which essentially creates shared hallucinations) for the expressed purpose of allowing people to write with our characters, but not specifically using the MR story line.




Now enough! This topic is not here for arguing ideologies! It is a guide and I won't have this clogging it up any longer!

I've failed as keeper of the guide. I have been so blind.


"Lastly it is known that adjacent to MR are an unknown number of other dimensions. Strange realities which are largely unexplored."


That's written in the Geography of Mangaraiders section of the guide.


We have an infinite number of alternate universe in which to play with.


I am a fool.................




Lorenx, I'm sorry. It seems you and I have been arguing over something that should have been apparent to both of us.


Start your universe B. Run wild with it. For every story that doesn't fit on MR Prime, it can be declared to be existing withing a parallel verse.

i'm not waiting an answer for that, what i will say its' better if you made the page.


it says alot more that founders of MR "recognize" other universes, then another random user creates an alternate universe thread....would u rather create a smoking zone in the same club or would u just redirect them to a lesser club not owned by the same club owners?

We can work the whole alternate universe thing into the existing guide. I'll need some time to work on the editing, but everything can be included, after all the whole point of the guide itself was to have a consolidation of all the information. As I said before: Unity for all is all I crave.

Well theoretically, our personas should remain the same throughout, since after all the characters of the MR stories are just the personifications that we the members produce. It only makes sense that we wouldn't be entirely different people in an alternate MR. At least not enough that the basics that get outlined in the guide should change. I suppose if an individual raider specifies they want different versions of themselves, but I doubt that will happen often. Remind me to get you in there all the same.

I figure the new and improved guide will go something like this.

I: General Information
      > Member Characters
II. Universe Listings
      > Universe A Stories
              > Universe A Information
      > Universe B Stories
              > Universe B Information

And etc.

i'm just saying Universe A is the defined universe and anything doesn't fit in universe A is some other random universe. or allow more room i was thinking "Other universes" so that, the characters can vary and even contradict, or be completely different, and have nothing in common with universe A and still be considered a Universe. and if someone made a consistent group of universe, we can name that group whenever.

Lorenx1, the only reason I'm listed as a character is because I've participated in the rough-draft-goes Day of 1000 Styles (which isn't even actually part of the canon, although it uses the same characters): http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,6904.0.html

I've never written anything in the actual MR canon.

Too, technically speaking, you are already a character. You just have to write yourself in there or make known that you'd like to be in there.

Don't worry about it Paipis, we got this settled.


Though yes I guess it's worth mentioning, that a member technically enters the canon as a character the moment they make their presence known on the forum. But for the most part they're not actually used until people have a good enough sense of them to replicate their persona. Just in case you're ever wondering about using someone who's fresh off the boat as it were.

I'm actually very worried about the idea of allowing writers to use other users. isn't that part of the reason why there's a guideline? so that another person making up a story doesn't use their own characters against them?

Maybe for alternate universes, if someone would like to change it, it would have to have mutual consent?
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coryn on October 03, 2013, 07:48:28 AM
MR canon was founded on the idea of writers using other users as characters. and yes that's why there's a character section of the guideline. We entrust our personas with them, and that's why you usually only see members who have been around the block a couple time actually writing MR stories. It's all about mutual trust really, and we have it spades around here.

Ooh, I like Lorenx's idea of universe B. It will be like the Legend of Zelda Timeline, where several universes are created depending on the outcome of an earlier story.

(http://www.geekosystem.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/12/ztime.jpg)

It kinda lets us go wild with everything. Although I will most likely be sticking to what we've got going right now. I've grown attatched to it, or rather, I've grown in it. It really does make sense for others to have other ideas about MR Canon, seeing as everyone came in during a different time and has different views on it all.

I do agree that Coryn is right and that we should keep using the same personas, or roughly the same. They're based on what we are like in MR. Although maybe one wants to write a 'what if' story, where MR would have had different people in it. I mean, if you really want to, although I don't see the point of making it MR canon at that stage.

I'd liken the MR Canon to the DC comics continuity. Everything's been rebooted and reworked and rehashed by the countless numbers of writers working on it that it's easy to pick and choose which portions of which timeline you want to use.

If you didn't like "Life at Sea," it's pretty easy to call the whole thing a simulation from a Coryn-bot. Maybe "Day of 1,000 styles" isn't your bag, so the whole thing was a group hallucination caused by a time skip.

What I'm saying is, the characters' personalities stay consistent, but everything else can pretty much be hand-picked at your leisure.

everyone has a different side. And the persona you get is most likely not the one people to focus on, its the one most people perceive you as.


So i think theres room for multiple sides of the same coin or cube. So, i allowed other to view me as a jerk, but others might question "why is she such a caricature of a jerk when she's really just giving good advice?

Well I think it's really up to the individual author's to write a character a certain way. Everyone will have slightly different takes. That's why the descriptions posted here are only the basics. And really I think for the most part people will continue to write us consistently for the most part, and if they want to deviate that's fine.

You can still have your own thing to power yourself up with though. Besides, heirarchy isn't what we're aiming for, just more fleshing out of the canon.

On that note are you going to finish your story?

Damn I feel kinda bad that I didn't see this earlier. MY bad lego. To answer your question, yes I will be finishing my story. I was really thinking a lot about my story while I was on break from the forum, so I never forgot about it. It's just that I think so much about my stories that I end up waiting a long time before actually writing something. I think that hinders my writing in a way. Also, I'm currently in the process of writing the first chapter for my character's origin story so be on the lookout for that as well.

Expertly trained fighter, and extremely intelligent, but human all the same. He's the kind who prefers to use wit and brains to overcome his enemies though. So he's not necessarily the one out there doing the dirty work when he can help it, he's sitting back and making the calls.

Alright! After getting bored I have gone into update some things!

Firstly: You'll see at the beginning of the guide the explanation for the grouping of stories into different universes. Short version: Pick a universe, and write a story for it. If the story doesn't fit any of the known universes, it will be classified as belonging to a universe all it's own.

I also made some radical changes to my own profile to fit changes brought about by Nuances of Battle, and made some minor tweaks to Lego's as he was involved.


As always, let me know if you have any questions, or would like your own entry in the guide.

It's half half. Some of the raiders were going to be written into canon but there wasn't much way to represent them apart from the writer guessing their raider form from the profile picture maybe, so them writing up their first bio sort of helps things out in that direction.

No no, just leave it as is. As a general rule an MR story's "present" is when it is originally posted. So the present of your story is whenever you started, which was months ago, before the change.

We should get around to having all active members create their own descriptions. It'd be nice for reference and plus I honestly don't know how to write them into any stories without any details or quick overview of their MR
personas.

With that said I'll throw mine on here.
LittRL- Position: Newbie. An average Asian male with black hair, tan skin, and dark brown eyes he does not draw any major attention to himself with his side-characterish air about him. He dresses in whatever's lying around not covered in dirt or food stains.

Once of Hero status going by an old name, Litt, he left MR to venture out into the world. Returning due to his inability to cut his ties with the place he spent so much time him he came back under a new guise, LittRL. Having to restart from the ground up he hails as a newcomer with experience of old. Unfamiliar faces and surroundings confuse him as he tries to settle back into the community.

Not having taken part in much of the action in MR as well as a hiatus of 3 years have left LittRL rusty and inexperienced in the battlefield once again having to hone his skills to return to his past glory. He has few other skills worth mention as he spends most of his time now reminiscing of the past with with the remnants of the place he once now.

Ladies and gentleman may I introduce to you the new and improve MR Canon Guide!

It's all located quite concisely in the opening post of this topic, so please feel free to get in there and check out all of the edits and new information that was introduced!

How easy is it to update the information? We're talking about several characters. not that i'm complaining, but i just dont want any trouble.

Post by: Coryn on December 29, 2013, 12:49:15 PM
it's super easy to update, just to answer that previous question. editing it here on the forums was always a massive hassle, one of the reasons I made the switch.

and really creating an entirely new forum would be way too much. creating a new board would be too much. the whole point was to keep all of the information in one place.

I'm sorry it's a bit of a hassle to read on your phone, but you can read it, and that's what's important. Everyone has access, and it's centralized in a single location. Sorry, but we're going to stick with this method. I just played the numbers, this way has the most pros and the fewest cons.

If you ever want to know something but don't want to struggle through the guide you can always ask me a question directly though. I'll be more than happy to elaborate on specific bits of information.


Might I suggest perhaps though, checking out the actual google docs app. It might make it easier.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Lumaria on January 01, 2014, 10:48:03 PM
i rather just make it a board. and as much as you claim its a hassle, it'll only be a hsasle to get it done.

EXAMPLE:

once you finish making the sticky threads "guideline" you can also allow the access to the stories in the new board. so it makes it easier to follow. this could be under the "Manga Creations" board similar to the "discussions" board.

i just wish you cared enough for other's accessibility. and its not that easy to read. for example: whether i change it vertically or horizontally, i cannot zoom into read what i'm seeing. the doc is setup to spread across.

ALl you have to do is "organize".

also: i offered to make the organization myself for you.

Haha sorry looks like my page refreshed and I lost the rest of my text. I wanted to say I was drawing parallels with the whole MR Verse thing where the characters reference past major events. I just thought it interesting, ended up thinking of our own anime adaptations or something like that haha. I just felt inspired by it, and if every raider has their own origin stories properly hashed out the guide could become that much more powerful. Just random thoughts

Yeah I suppose so. I mean we end up being a collection of anime heroes for the most part, so it's pretty similar.

Should really get back to the origin story eventually.

I was thinking it was something around those lines, Lego. Was waiting for the reference to the MR Canon though since I don't remember there being a topic for the Marvel movie universe on the forum.

We're like one big crossover or a rehashing of characters in different circumstance fitting to our chosen scenarios like a comic book. It's been said on the forum before but it would be nice if we had a competition or someone wrote the official canon story. Like the main universe sort of thing.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coryn on January 15, 2014, 06:45:20 PM
We're all writing the official canon though Litt. Every story is canon, and is distributed throughout different dimensions. You've got the prime universe plus whatever may come, and they all count.

Cause that's the kind of universe MR is, it's sitting there, soaking up all of the possiblities. To write a definitive story would just seem too plain for us.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: LittRL on January 15, 2014, 06:52:45 PM
No, no. I get that but it seems more like a comic book world then. Same characters with at least semblance to past incarnations of themselves in different stories in different worlds. That's fine and it's nice that everyone can add to the canon but like all origin stories I feel like the prime world should be the most well-established as well as the purest canon. Like how The Amazing Spider-man was the original even if everything else is canon. Not to say it would be greatly superior to the other stories but it would be clear reference as to who the characters are and what they can do in a main world sense. That way we can see the spin in the alternate universes.
Title: Re: Coryn Sken's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coryn on January 15, 2014, 08:26:26 PM
Well if you want a main universe that's the prime universe which we have set up already. the definitive start. don't know if you want to call it the purest, but it is the beginning, the most well established.

Will be looking forward to that origin story write.

As for things like prime universe I think they're going really well actually. Over time the ability to reference things it just getting easier and easier, you've already done well enough with it Litt with the holiday stories, and you'll notice over time how easier it is.

As for major storyline plots haha, when we make the video game we'll have like a major event with the banhammer and all. That'll be sweet.

And on that note, the canon will expand that much faster if it translates to other mediums. Manga would be very appropriate, the video game would be fun. But baby steps. I'm looking at Beta now in terms of trying out new mediums hehe. And ofcourse DOTS

Post by: Coryn on January 18, 2014, 01:43:34 AM
Well, in universe I always assumed that the actual 4kids headquarters would be their company network. with like their public site being like a facade. since in real life companies all have secure servers they keep their info and work on. So no we wouldn't know how to get to their actual base, but we'd know locations of their franchises if you will. ala Litt's chapter.

Post by: Coryn on May 10, 2014, 07:29:36 PM
Well, in my opinion there are two good options:

A) Read through the guide, and then tackle the stories in chronological order
B) Read the stories in chronological order, then tackle the guide.


Reading the guide first will probably leave you a little confused about where the information came from, but you'll have a good idea of what's going on.

Reading the stories first will let you get the feel of things down, but you'll probably be a little confused about the information since some of it was never really solidified until it was put in the guide, so things can tend to change some from story to story.


Personally, I'd start with the stories. You can find links to all of them in the story list portion of the guide, and the first ones are pretty easy to blow through. Most are only a few chapters long until you get to Life at Sea. Even then most are relatively short.


God's speed Vacant. As always, come to me if you have any questions.

Post by: Coryn on May 10, 2014, 08:57:11 PM
Alright, the guide has been update in general with a couple more things I had forgotten about, and I also created a new document. The Timeline. Mostly it just puts dates on stories and other significant canon events. Such as when mods joined, the founding of groups, and some of the more recent stuff that I could remember.

This should help us keep track of events in canon that don't actually come from stories.

Sorta kinda

See when I got here the Writers Section consisted only of the Fan Fics board. There were about 10 topics on it. None were finished stories, about 2 of them were originals. And one was actually a stolen naruto fic from fanfiction.net or something along the lines. All were abandoned. 


We kinda came in a clump, Zero, Kaz, and I. We were the first to really start posting our own stories here on the forum with any real intent. But I was the first (not by much). And so it was written.

Post by: Coryn on June 07, 2014, 01:11:11 AM
Everything's canon. it's just a question of which universe it's sorted into.

so far all of the finished stories have been in the prime verse, and currently we're waiting on someone to finish a story that would be classified as another universe, creating universe 2.

it's pretty straightforward. though to be fair it's not really like marvel's set up. Marvel just tacks everything ever onto one universe (well mostly). DC on the other hand reboots every 10 years. So we're more like DC, separating everything into different self consistent universes. Except we don't abandon the old ones.



to better answer your question though infinite. you are already in on it. you've always been in on it. you existing on this site means you're in on it.

DC universe has always had multiple universes. thats kind of the issue with DC. they have over 40 of them https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_DC_Multiverse_worlds

and Marvel also has multi-universes aswell although they dont exploit them like DC does. still, is there ever going to be a reboot? I believe, the problem lies with making everything canon. Or rather, making some form of history.

You and other admins are leading the old series. Especially lego, i never see the guy not making something outside of  MR canon. And i believe making it harder to make new ideas work. Its kind o like this is to share whoever is in on it. but i think that grows thinner as others feel obligated to look back to see what has been established.


if this was my idea, i would've added rules before making it such a monstrosity (in terms of how difficult it is to understand, not in terms of quality). For one, make sure each one is self contained. That characters can't evolve or change from their original concept, and so on.

i dont think you understand. its still difficult to understand the MR "canon". theres a way to make everything mostly fall in the same universe, and still be self contained.

it's fine it's fine. though i prefer to think of myself as urahara if we're continuing the bleach metaphor. all of my intentions are strictly on the up and up, and I don't go around murdering subordinates.

not that those 'ethical' guys would say so. of course all they have is a few loose accusations about my treatment of some mimes during a time of crisis. at least i let the ones i had go. meanwhile their first act of business was taking some of those same mimes and brainwashing them into slaves. so really, who's more ethical here?

The mimes were peacefully subdued... Besides, you said it yourself they need no pity.

Post by: Coryn on July 03, 2014, 12:32:30 PM
experimenting on human beings is a standard part of scientific procedure. you can't do something to humans if you don't know it's going to work for humans. don't you know how drug testing works?

besides, i thought i made it quite clear in WTMR that the mimes weren't human, but some sort of weird subspecies.

related note: I have an uncle who when he dies wants his body donated to one of those corpse farms. which if you're not familiar, are places that put corpses in different situations so they can study how they decompose. which is mostly for the benefit of police and such who are the ones who deal with decomposing bodies in strange situations most of the time.

Post by: NO1SY on September 20, 2014, 02:31:24 PM
OK so it was suggested that I write myself a sort of bio for the MR canon now that I have earned my awesome MR hero coat! So here it is! Sorry if it's a little long...

NO1SEY (aka NOISEY or NO1SE) – Position: Hero Member

A rather non-descript character aside from being tall, white and sporting large, shaggy, ginger hair. He likes to vary what he wears, but has the strange delusion that he can pull off random outfits from his favourite DS game “The World Ends With You” despite not having the faintest clue about Japanese fashion. NO1SEY prides himself on keeping his changeable appearance suave, neat and colour-coordinated, because lord knows he can’t get his hair to behave! 95% of the time NO1SEY will be found with earphones in, listening to music. The other 5% of the time you can bet he still has a song in his head that he will be incessantly tapping along to (A side effect from learning to play drums from a young age).

NO1SEY enjoys sporting a friendly and open attitude towards others and their tastes and mainly goes by the ethos that anyone is allowed to be into anything as long as it doesn’t negatively impact the world and those around them. His attitude to most things is passive and relaxed however, and the only time you will see him put in a lot of effort is when he is working to make things more efficient… but that’s only because he wants things to be less work and easier for himself in the long run. If he can be motivated however, his intellect and tactical mind is fairly impressive, and he will be sure to put in 110% effort. NO1SEY appreciates sophistication in a lot of things, especially writing, but unfortunately is a bit uptight about grammar. As a result his own name sometimes upsets him as a freak oversight led to it's misspelling sticking...

With NO1SEY’s general attitude, he tries to avoid conflict and fighting, as it’s a lot of work and there is always a better solution. He can hold his own in a physical fight but with little knowledge of weaponry he would much prefer an impressive power, like those found in some of his favourite games, to utilise in and outside of combat... something like air, soundwave or kinetic energy manipulation... That said it’d be more than likely all he’d want to use it for would be to sway his hammock as he fell asleep under a sunset… BUT when duty calls, or something upsets his (or his friends') peace and quiet, he proudly dons his MR hero coat and enters the fray.

Post by: Vio on September 22, 2014, 05:43:46 PM
With the request to give details for the canon after receiving my hero's coat, here's a bit of information about me:

Vio
Position: Hero Member
Description: Caucasian, medium size brownish-blond hair, bluish-green eyes 

When not being a badass in intergalactic space, Vio can be usually seen at home and taking care of his daughter, Meadow. Vio tends to wear a white coat with a belt and fur around the collar and cuffs (Something like Stark release form but a tad different). While his child attends daycare, Vio works on his music compositions and preparing food for supper.

On his off-hours, Vio likes to spend his time outside with his daughter and regularly visits his local concert hall once a month. Vio tries to stay in shape with cardio exercise and strength training, yet he tends to be seen taking a nap on the couch. 

When Vio is asked to fight for a cause, he fights with two forms of combat. Vio's first form of combat is long-range combat with his sniper rifle. He uses this form to gather Intel. on his targets, establish the situation, and possible take out the high value targets before moving to his second form. Vio's second form is close-range combat with two musical swords shaped as musical eighth notes.

Vio's musical sword
I'll try and make a better design of swords... someday. >.>

Canon Pitch time!

Four 4kids agents who appeared in a random Day of 1,000 Styles episode and Dystop 2


The Pitch: 4kids has an elite core of sorts (ala Sternritter of the Quincy) known as 4KCU (4Kids Censorship Unit). Their uniform tends to be purely of bandages, and each member tends to have horns. There are assumed to be 7 members since each Elite member is an embodiment of The Seven Deadly Sins, but this is not necessarily true as any capable agent is (or was) promoted to this rank of 4KCU (Past tense because 4kids became bankrupt and therefore the title 4KCU itself is not quite relevant)

(https://i.imgur.com/lLOGtTr.jpg)

These agents surnames tend to be under the formula of *Insert Greek Numeral Prefix here* + *Greek letter of the alphabet*

E.g the first agent... Digamma (Di-Gamma ). First names follow the trend of biblical names, usually hebrew.

Identified members of the 4KCU core are


1 (On the phone) . This member of 4kids is only known to spy on others, and his name is not yet known. He wears a cap and is bandaged like everyone else, but his face is revealed. Answers to Digamma.

2. (Far left) General Digamma. One horn snapped off. Leader type. Suspected mindreader. Other details unknown, but suspected to come from the 9th Circle. Covert agent who answers directly to Bethuw'el

3. Acediem Octoiota. AKA The Procrastinator.  Single horn. Personification of Sloth.  Before his promotion he used to belong to the 1st Chorus of t he 5th Circle

His abilities cause people to procrastinate and generally be lazy. He's ironically a great footsoldier, but his area of effect is problematic enough to involve his allies. A portly man.

He tends to go with the bandaged look except he wears no shoes, and wears holiday shirts and the like. He looks like a tourist

4. Megedagik Monodelta (No prefix for four in greek unfortunately) . Personification of War. Has two horns and is basically a badass brute. His bandages cover his whole body but leave his left eye free. Has a fringe of hair on top. He wears spiked boots and white 3-quatre trousers and a small overcoat that doesn't trail too much. Usually loses his top in battle and ends up bare-shirted. Thirsty for blood and violence, and is pretty much a nuclear missle with a brain. He's only interested in destruction.

5. Akan Decakappa. Personification of Envy.  Has ram horns.  An accomplished hacker, she only has bandages around her fingers and legs. Black, short cut hair, she still manages to look very cute despite stern warnings from the Circle she came from (8th Circle Of Fraud). She's vegetarian, and tries to talk very little, but secretly likes anime and all it's craziness. She is nevertheless an accomplished agent.

6 (Far Right). Achan Decazeta. Personifaction of War. She has a single horn on one side of her temple whilst the other is cut off. She wields heavy handcannons, her favourite being a Taurus 454. Cassull Revolver. Her combat abilities were already noteable and significantly increased as she inadvertly trained in an alternate wasteland known as Dystopic Blades. Her knowledge of mangaraiders combat moves makes her a formidable opponent especially against them. She acts very protective of the hacker known as Akan, and is generally individual in her thoughts and actions otherwise.



7 (Not Shown) . An unknown member yet unmentioned but definitely noted in a headcount of the 4KCU.

looks pretty good to me. there was an image of them once I know, but it might have been lost with the rest of the Lost Days Arc? I have no idea. If we can find that, it would be great.


also, you misspelled Bethuw'el (there was a similar misspelling in the end of Dystop, but I forgot to point it out then)

Before I do any of that though I have to draw my chapter for Day of 1000 styles to know if I'm definitely in the zone again. Btw sorry about being a lazy creature on that front. Just don't want to cheap out on my word and write a chapter instead of draw as promised.

Okay Coryn! Here is my first draft for the 4KCU dossier file. It's very iffy, but I think it names the main agents we've seen so far in MR Canon.

And wow, I went down some of the canon at random and this is quite amazing when you see it. Definitely hyped for more MR Canon in general dude. It's just so fun.

Also, here is a blurb for Dystop 2 if it's needed

Quote
Dystopic Blades 2

Dystopic Blades is naturally, the sequel to the first Dystopic Blades. The survivors of the first fight, Coryn and Aero search once again for The Fire. But not everything is as it seems. Strange static storms rise, even as the tournament to the death continues with new players on board.

It is then revealed that Dystopic Blades is actually what used to be Mortal Combat. Through lots of complicated shenanigans, the raiders battle against the 4KCU and find a way back to reality to prevent the destruction of MR City.

http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,6308.0.html

And of course, for the timeline

Quote
For the timeline:

April 7th, 2011 - By some time travel shenanigans, Raiders escape the trapped frozen world and continue on with their predetermined lives.

Post by: MisterSherbetLemon on May 29, 2016, 03:11:08 PM
I've read some of the earlier stories but need to majorly catch up.

However, on the offchance this gets reignited soon you can consider this a rough format post to enlist myself into any future MR Canon stories ;)

Quote
Nobody really knows where Sherbet really came from but he first appeared on the streets of MR city with much vigor and gusto.

Nowadays, he is often seen drinking and spouting drunken nonsense on a variety of street corners within the Writer's Districts, a bottle of Goldschlager in one hand and a shot glass in the other. This seemingly homeless fool has some class at least.

Occasionally, he can also be spotted outside of the MR Pub shouting all manners of strange jargon, for they have learned not to allow him in for extended periods anymore. Despite his antics, there are some who believe that there is always a knowing look in those bleary eyes, even when Sherbet claims they are seeing double. 

Unfortunately, most of the knowledge he seeks to share with passers by is often slurred and unintelligible. Yet there are occasional times that wisdom pours out amongst the drunken ramblings and as time has gone by, the local community has gradually learned to understand the many prattling words this unfortunate soul offers them. From time to time, they have even gained his trust and been allowed to drink from the glittering golden bottle that he wields which he claims is the source of his true power. If that power truly exists, he has yet to reveal it.

Sherbet has not yet stepped forth to involve himself when MR city calls for aid but perhaps someday, the time will come to reveal whether or not he has purposefully remained in the dark...or maybe he really is just a crazed drunkard.

Well it's a solid start. Hard to edit things on a phone, bit I can get to working it in once internet is live and proper again. There were a few errors (the circles and chorus's are their whole military division for instance, nod just this unit), but over all pretty quick to fit in with the section we already have on 4kids

I expected as much. Edit them as you can. I messed up the naming of the agents during Dystop as well, so they may be need to be explained away as exceptions e.g General Digamma and co. There was also a hebrew naming theme that I forgot to work with .

Oh yeah, I almost forgot this was a thing. I have read some of the stories going on, and I appreciate the TL;DR of the google docs Coryn has set up. I, like Mister Sherbert, would like to join as a character when/if this gets reignited. I plan on posting something of an introduction to myself as a story to see if I can actually kickstart it myself, and the reason I'm bothering to comment here is to remind myself to do so. (I'm one of those people that once I put my word out there that I'm going to do something, I'm much more likely to get it done in a reasonable time span.)

If anyone wants me to write up a quick bio, I suppose I can do that with some guidelines or something. (Kind of like I'm still waiting for someone to actually go to my profile page and ask about my "location" any day now.) Unless someone tells me otherwise, I'll PM Coryn a draft when I'm done with that for verification and then I guess I'll either post it here or post it alongside my introductory oneshot.

Post by: MahluaandMilk on July 02, 2016, 01:40:54 PM
I did the MRverse Bio thing, as promised. I'm working on the origin story now. Sorry for the double-post, but I wanted it to actually be alerted to, since I don't think modifying a message shows up on unread.

Bless Coryn for sitting through my 1.5k word first draft. Anyway, I’ve tried to condense this for your artistic liberty and reading pleasure.


Body/Appearance
>Hair: Ginger, long, occasionally put up lazily to keep bangs out of eyes while working.

>Eyes: “Hazel”, but varies with surrounding colors and mood.

>Body: ~5’6” (somewhere in the range of 165-170 cm) and petite but androgynously lightly toned build.

>Glasses: Rectangle light but solid frame, alt: cosplay contacts and/or steampunk/industrial prescrip goggles.

>Style: Flannel, skinny jeans, and boots, sometimes a tie. Alts: non-pastel variations of Goth and Lolita, also Industrial/Cyberpunk and Steampunk. Oddly, I don’t wear reds/pinks/yellows. Have a field day.

>Body Mods: None “irl”, but in universe I’m fine with most anything you see fit. Only no-nos are nose and naval piercings.

>Gender???: I said “demigirl” in the Welcome Center and I don’t wanna confuse you. It’s just how I express myself. Basically casual, gender-neutral clothes most of the time, but may get a little girly for an event.

Things I Do
>Women.

>Write/draw/hang out/review. Obvs.

>Parkour/Free Running: Mild proficiency.

>Slack Lining: Can walk a line just fine, but still working on turning around, never mind fancy tricks.

>Work-Outs: Nothing too intense, and usually just with my own body and surroundings, not machines or weights.

>Caster Boards (i.e. Ripstick) : Casually. No real tricks to speak of.

>Dance: Somewhere between industrial, jumpstyle, hip-hop, and generally looking like an idiot. Bonus for poi balls or glowsticks.

>Witchy/Pagan things: No curses/hexes from me. I ain’t about that life. I may use herbs and such for healing, and I might could be convinced to do some divination. Ceremonial feasts are fun though.

My Comedic Quirks
>I quit smoking back in October of last year, but I will occasionally bum a drag when around other smokers. Can be used in the “I thought you quit!” sense.

>Sometimes my Southern accent slips out, typically when I’m mad or otherwise very passionate.

>I have some creative insults, and I swear a lot. However, I try to steer clear of the GD bomb unless absolutely livid.

>I have some faint Asian tendencies due to my upbringing. I will eat most anything with chopsticks and occasionally use Hawaiian slang.

>I absolutely abhor onions. My body just can’t bring itself to bear the taste of them. Yet, I love garlic.

>When I can, I will drop puns, innuendos, or shout “OBJECTION!” with the tell-tale finger-point.

>I am hilariously weak to “advances” from intelligent, strong-willed, determined, and generally dominant-aired women. My stutterfits are notorious.

>I’m going into teaching, and I ramble a lot when I’m passionate. Feel free to make teacher jokes. I will laugh with you.

Writing Me In A Fight?
>Secretly, I’m quite a suppressed sadist. In a fight, feel free to have me frenzy with shrieks and inappropriate gigglefits and vaguely (or not so vaguely) suggestive commentary.

>I love electric/shock based fighting. Bonus for punny or innuendo attack names.
>>I have a favorite “Fatality” style attack my friends and I came up with called Pink Lightning. Basically take the enemy by the head and fry them with pure electricity through the eyeballs. Bonus for a bad one-liner afterwards.

>As for weapons, particularly I like the karambit, cutlass, scimitar, khopesh, guandao, and battle or handaxe. Would be fine with chakrams or warhammers.

Further Insight
>To guide, to protect, to teach, and to love. Those are my main life focuses.

>Puns, innuendos, and dry/cynical humor and sass/snarkery galore.

>I don’t even take myself seriously with some of my passions.
   
>I believe all people have infinite potential, but in both good and bad directions.

>I don’t intend to make things personal, but sometimes my words are misconstrued as such..

When in doubt, feel free to PM, but firstly and foremostly, have fun!

Obstensively. The universe is there to work with, but keep in mind the goal is to have our main characters be ourselves (some leeway obviously). That being said, we work with a big multiverse angle, so not hard to incorporate different things. Which is how we've ended up with such a smorgasbord of stuff.

My advice before diving too deep, is to at least give the guide a read, and any stories that picques your interest. Lay that foundation.

Post by: Coach Fro on February 12, 2018, 04:43:45 PM
I've done it
MR city had been cast under the shadow of the growing night, leaving only its most tallest skyscrapers visible in the glowing moonlight that highlighted the city's form. Among the tallest of skyscrapers stood Fronomenal with a rusty shovel in hand, his head down with a evil grin on his face.

"I did it..."

A sound of thunder rumbled off in a distance. A succession of lightning strikes ripped through the sky above him.

Fro lifted up his head, his smile now contorting into something truly sinister.

"HAHA! I'VE DONE IT!"

He raised his shovel high into the air. A streak of lightning flashed behind him as he did so.

"I WATCHED RAIDERS SURVIVE A ZOMBIE APOCALYPSE, SAIL THE SEAS IN SEARCH OF HIDDEN TREASURE, AND RIP EACH OTHER TO SHREDS TO CLAIM A MYSTERIOUS POWER FROM A DYSTOPIAN WORLD!"

A gang of gray clouds mugged the dark skies above, producing a very fitting rainstorm for the already dramatic scene.

"I WATCHED ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND I FEEL AS THOUGH I EXPERIENCED THEM FIRSTHAND, GRANTING ME KNOWLEDGE AND POWER FAR BEYOND MY OWN ONCE FEEBLE IMAGINATION!"

As he said that, energy in the shape of pixels and code began to ooze out from every existing object in MR and slowly swirled their way upwards to Fro, circulating around him.  Suddenly the collective swirl of energy spun rapidly around Fro's shovel, outlining its form in a golden hue.

"HERE MY NAME INHABITANTS OF THE NET, FOR AM I NOW A BEING THAT HAS TRANSCENDED TIME AND SPACE ITSELF! LISTEN CLOSELY FOR THIS WILL BE THE ONLY TIME YOU"LL HEAR ME CHANT THESE HEAVENLY WORDS!

Everything around Fro seemed to intensify. The thundering and lightning, the spiral of energy, the pouring of dramatic rainfall. Even the night sky appeared to have darkened more.

All of this occurred to amplify this once in a lifetime moment. Screaming at top of his lungs he shouted.

"I AM PRODIGY OF THE OLD AND LOST! THE DISCOVERER OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS! THE MASTER OF UNTOLD STORIES LEFT BY THE DEAD! I AM THE NEW LOREMASTER OF ALL THINGS CANON! I AM THE FRONOMENAL ONE! I AM THE GRAVEMEISTER!!!"

And it was in that moment, when Fro's proclamations seemed to have reached their most absurd, he was struck by lightning in anticlimactic, yet expected fashion.  He stood frozen for a moment, his body resembling a mess of burnt ash, before collapsing and falling off the edge of the skyscraper and landing on the asphalt below with a large thud.

The thunder and rain stops and the gray clouds dispersed, leaving a clear blue sky and looming sunlight in their wake. Fro laid face first on the ground in a heap of ash, his rusted shovel laying beside him. Coryn appeared in front of the Foolish Fro, his hands buried deep in the pockets of his lab-coat. He shook his head.

"Junior Loremaster, Fro..."

In all seriousness though it's been one hell of journey going through all of this canon. It was fun adventure indeed, and it has really inspired me to write even more than before. I got like mad questions to ask, but I'll save them for another time. Right now I just want to relish in this moment of satisfaction.

And before anyone ask, the passage above was just a spur of the moment kind of thing. I really have no idea as to why I wrote it, but it happened and now it's there. Whether it's included in the canon or not... Well, that's up to the true Loremaster now isn't it?

Post by: Coach Fro on April 07, 2018, 10:44:47 PM
I do remember you mentioning that. Looking forward to whatever else you add to it.

Also, I've been pondering on the idea of doing a tier list consisting of MR characters from the canon, as well as npcs such as the tans and 4kids agents. All for fun of course.

The only problem of course is  the limited amount of story presence a lot of the members in the guide have. If I were to go based on theory alone, many of the  newer members won't be accurately placed on the tier list. And for the most part, the majority of written canon doesn't consist of many fight scenes where our characters are using their natural abilities, so pulling tangible information from those stories to form a reasonable tier list will definitely be a challenge.

Mortal Combat and whatever transpired at Bungie could be a good wealthy source of information. Unfortunately that source of information eventually comes to an abrupt halt, and once again falls to my earlier point of newer members not having proper story time to show off their stuff.

I still wanna do this though. I'm thinking of starting off the tier list like this:

Spoiler

Admin Tier
Hasisth
Corycaly

Tan Tier
MR Tan and company (Pub tan might be an exception though, since she's technically not a combat type.)

Hero tier(Maybe???) and so on and so forth


Suggestions anyone? Could something like this even be feasible?   
Title: Re: Coryn's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coryn on April 08, 2018, 12:53:36 AM
I'm not sure. Like DBZ, power levels in canon are impossible to pin down, and you can only really get a general sense of how strong someone is. If anything, it might be something to just add to the character descriptions to give a little context.

But I don't know, it feels kind of limiting, and just another thing potential new writers would have to worry about. It seems just as reasonable to me to say "Admins are basically God's, Tans are like demigods. Mods are super strong but can wreck just about anything of they get serious, and regular members are more or less on an equal playing field if they can imagine themselves to be." More eloquent than that of course, but it gives the information someone needs without trying to rank us like NCAA teams.
Title: Re: Coryn's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coach Fro on April 11, 2018, 02:08:17 PM
Good points, although I wasn't intending the tier list to be part of the official guide. Just a fun little side project to work on and eventually present to everyone and get their thoughts on it. Tier list of anything are, for the most part, purely subjective after all.

And plus, it doesn't benefit the guide in any way, which is why I'm strictly doing it for fun. I'll probably attach a disclaimer to it at the beginning to let the newer writers know not to take it as law.

Still, in order properly construct one, hella research has to be done, which means I'll probably have to do a lot of rereading of canon stories, which also means I may have to dig through Mortal Combat, which also means that I'll probably end up reading at least over 200+ pages of nonstop madness...

Gonna be a lot of fun, and headaches, to say the least.

Mortal Combat will always be missed. Man there were shenanigans in there. But that would prove a challenge even for a gravedigger like you, Fro.

"I WATCHED ALL OF THESE THINGS, AND I FEEL AS THOUGH I EXPERIENCED THEM FIRSTHAND, GRANTING ME KNOWLEDGE AND POWER FAR BEYOND MY OWN ONCE FEEBLE IMAGINATION!"

As he said that, energy in the shape of pixels and code began to ooze out from every existing object in MR and slowly swirled their way upwards to Fro, circulating around him.  Suddenly the collective swirl of energy spun rapidly around Fro's shovel, outlining its form in a golden hue.

"HERE MY NAME INHABITANTS OF THE NET, FOR AM I NOW A BEING THAT HAS TRANSCENDED TIME AND SPACE ITSELF! LISTEN CLOSELY FOR THIS WILL BE THE ONLY TIME YOU"LL HEAR ME CHANT THESE HEAVENLY WORDS!

Everything around Fro seemed to intensify. The thundering and lightning, the spiral of energy, the pouring of dramatic rainfall. Even the night sky appeared to have darkened more.

All of this occurred to amplify this once in a lifetime moment. Screaming at top of his lungs he shouted.

"I AM PRODIGY OF THE OLD AND LOST! THE DISCOVERER OF FORGOTTEN DREAMS! THE MASTER OF UNTOLD STORIES LEFT BY THE DEAD! I AM THE NEW LOREMASTER OF ALL THINGS CANON! I AM THE FRONOMENAL ONE! I AM THE GRAVEMEISTER!!!"

And it was in that moment, when Fro's proclamations seemed to have reached their most absurd, he was struck by lightning in anticlimactic, yet expected fashion.  He stood frozen for a moment, his body resembling a mess of burnt ash, before collapsing and falling off the edge of the skyscraper and landing on the asphalt below with a large thud.

The thunder and rain stops and the gray clouds dispersed, leaving a clear blue sky and looming sunlight in their wake. Fro laid face first on the ground in a heap of ash, his rusted shovel laying beside him. Coryn appeared in front of the Foolish Fro, his hands buried deep in the pockets of his lab-coat. He shook his head.

"Junior Loremaster, Fro..."

In all seriousness though it's been one hell of journey going through all of this canon. It was fun adventure indeed, and it has really inspired me to write even more than before. I got like mad questions to ask, but I'll save them for another time. Right now I just want to relish in this moment of satisfaction.

And before anyone ask, the passage above was just a spur of the moment kind of thing. I really have no idea as to why I wrote it, but it happened and now it's there. Whether it's included in the canon or not... Well, that's up to the true Loremaster now isn't it?

Oh god this begs to go with this https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2AC41dglnM

You know when I originally wrote that piece, I was thinking of some dark, heavy orchestra playing in the background, but that song works well too.

And Lego, don't ever doubt the Gravemeister. There's no grave I can't dig.

Also, I've actually revisited Mortal Combat myself a few times. The Coryn vs Rojas battle and Coryn's weird circus ole arc are particular favorites of mine at the moment.

So in Coryn's story "Quest" it was mentioned that mods do not have access to their mod powers outside of MR.

Pretty sure I know the obvious reason why, but for clarification purposes, I would like to know as to why is this the case. *Winks at the Loremaster*

Well, we draw from reality on this one. I'm only a mod because the system says I am. So in canon as in real life, it's MR that actually dispenses the powers, and it can't do that outside of its own confines.

With Drifter now finished, I've managed to free up some time to work on updating the guide. Below are my blurbs for all the MR Canons I've finished this year. Gonna work on some bios for the raiders I introduced in Drifter, and the OC's I planted in that story as well. Oh yeah, gotta add a section for the Fighters Division too. Damn, didn't think the job of Junior Loremaster would involve a lot of busy work.

“The Strand of Truth

A short story written by Coach Fro that was originally intended to be a full length series involving Lego and himself. It was nothing more than a showdown between the two raiders in a cathedral for a magical object known as “The Strand of Truth”, which turned out to be a simple hair strand with a destructive beast sealed inside it; a beast that Fro was contractually obligated to kill. While it didn’t push the Canon forward per se, it revealed some interesting tidbits on Fro’s activities outside of MR, the most important of which being that he has ties to the Dark Net, and that he does mercenary work for an old man residing in the Dark Net.

http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,18808.0.html


I’ve Done it

Another short story written by Coach Fro. It was a spur of the moment story that establishes Fro’s real life efforts of successfully reading every MR story in existence in canonical form. His herculean efforts earned him the title of “Junior Loremaster”, a title directly under Coryn, who is the true Loremaster of all things Canon. Fro comically serves Coryn as an assistant of some sort.

http://forums.mangaraiders.com/index.php/topic,4437.msg291411.html#msg291411



MRverse: The Return of The Drifter

Coach Fro’s third MR story and his first full length one to boot. As the title suggests, the story details Fro’s return to MR after a long hiatus. It was revealed that much of his disappearance was contributed to his lifelong search of a former friend of his named “Mary, who betrayed and killed him during his younger years. Much of the story is dedicated to Fro’s mental state and progression on the matter, and after some deep conversations and internal monologues, he decided to put the whole ordeal behind him and dedicate his energy to a more positive endeavor by jump-starting his very own Fighters Division in MR.

Lots of news faces were introduced in this backstory-centric piece, including a few raiders, an original character known as Filia, and a mysterious scientist known as Aster, who is in charge of a even more mysterious organization labeled “Mugen Corp", that has ties to Fro in some form.

It's certainly no pushover. Thanks for the bios. Hopefully I can get some sit down time this weekend to get some work done on the guide in that case.

Post by: Coryn on August 05, 2018, 05:51:23 PM
You know Fro, I hate to do it to you. But I found another MR canon story you missed on your list of things that were missing from the story list. The second episode of WTMR didn't make it on.

Not to worry though, because I JUST SPENT MY AFTERNOON COMPLETELY REDOING THE ORGANIZATION OF THE STORIES LIST!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alright, so it is 100% up to date with ALL canon stories (I'm feeling 99% confident about that). They are now organized by year posted, and are in order of first posting (by the laws of MR Canon, a story's 'present' starts on the day of first posting, so this will also do to keep our timeline in order (until I get around to fixing the timeline)) That also has the benefit of keeping our cause and effect of story telling more or less straight forward on what ideas cropped up when. Granted, some of these topics span years (origins, DOTS, etc.), so again, date of first posting.

I've also made the layout just look...so much cleaner. Bold words, big text, intents and bullet points. So scrolling through while looking for a story should be much easier.

The big blind spot we still have, is that the list is definitely missing some holiday story threads (they're all over the place, for one). Since they don't count as canon as a rule of thumb, it's not the biggest deal, but I for one would like to recognize those raiders who put in the time and effort. Still, that's going to be some time intensive research into the backlogs. So far we only have the christmas/new years themed stories for 2013 & 2014. So if you see any floating out there, let me know.


So aside from all that, I did get a little distracted and fix up the characters document a little. Mostly I just incorporated the Artist and Pub-tan information we gleaned from Daily Lives. I also fixed up all the Tans with the master art reference list for them that I put together recently. I really want to hit that one next, although I think it will have to wait until next week. But from now until the reworking is done, I think I'll be spending my usual Sunday writing block getting the guide fixed up (My mobile writing is going well in any case, no need to let the guide suffer).


Jr. Loremaster Fronomenal, if you would be willing to do a write-up concerning the Fighter's Division as you envision it, that would be of great help in a few weeks when I get to the Groups & Organizations document. Despite all the time that has passed since I last took a pass at it, I'm pretty sure that's the biggest hole in there.
Title: Re: Coryn's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coach Fro on August 05, 2018, 07:42:19 PM
Dude I didn't even know there was a second episode for WTMR. I'm salty...

Finding the holiday stories will take some work, but digging those up shouldn't be a problem for me. I'll round those up by the end of tomorrow. What sucks though is that when I was still going through the canon stories I found the majority of the holiday stories by coincidence, and I forgot how I found every single one of them.  :push:

The Fighters Division organization bio will be included in the list of Member characters bios I'll be adding to the guide. Should have those done by next week or so.

Post by: Coryn on August 05, 2018, 08:21:55 PM
Yeah, finding those things are a big task. My only recourse is to just go through story boards one page at a time.

Like I said, not a big priority. My biggest thought is that some of the holiday topics might be hiding in the break room? Praying I'm just remembering that wrong.
Title: Re: Coryn's: Quick and Easy Guide to the MR Universe Story Canon and Characters
Post by: Coach Fro on August 07, 2018, 02:40:35 PM
As a general rule of thumb, whenever Fro says he's going to get something done on a particular day, assume he means the day after.

So I was under the assumption that the majority of the holiday stories were located in the writer's workshop, so that's where I did most of my digging. I'm sure there's more lying around in another section, but for now I'll post the ones I found so far.

An Excel/Spreadsheet format might be the way to go, as you can columnise the data and split it apart, so missing information becomes obvious, and all the information is in the same order. My friend and I do this extensively for game design to keep tract of character stats and descriptions etc. But it does make reading it and updating it a bit more of a pain.

Post by: Coach Fro on August 14, 2018, 12:43:55 PM
Took another look at the Character section. Definitely looks a lot more polished and organized. I think there was a typo somewhere in MR Tan's bio. I think you put "He" instead of "Her" in one of the sentences if I remembered correctly. Other than that, good work, Loremaster!

And Suuper, yes, you definitely need to join in on the fun man. I'm telling you it's a lot of fun just being involved in the canon and participating by reading other members' stories and writing your own. I still remember the excitement I had when I found out that my avatar was being used in a MRverse story. Been hooked ever since.

Alright, so I just did a write up for the Fighters Division organization bio this morning. I was gonna wait until I got the character bios finished as well, but I figured I might as well post this up and get it out the way. It's somewhat of a rough draft, so Coryn, feel free to make any adjustments as you see fit.

The MR Fighters Division (MRFD)

The Fighters Division official building is a gym located in a secluded spot in the Pub District. It was formerly owned by Coryn, who used it as a secret training ground. However, after his rebirth as a full fledged scientist, he abandoned the building in favor of his own underground science division, and eventually leased the property to Fro, who now uses it to host MRFD meetups. The gym itself is coated in a sparkly light blue with orange hardwood flooring. To the right of the main entrance are two doors that lead into locker rooms, one for each gender. Beyond that point are restrooms and shower areas that members can utilize when needed. It also should be noted that the division is sponsored by the Science Division, and since Coryn still has ties to the gym itself, the gym plays host to numerous trap doors that lead into the underground science division, trap doors that Coryn is in the process of sealing up.

The MRFD is a training program/hub designed to school the basics of combat to newbie raiders who decide to enroll into the program. The division is headed by Fro, who is the Division’s “Head Coach” and handles all of the training regiments. The Division operates four days a week, with each day dedicated to a particular area of training. The training schedule is as follows:

Day One: General lectures on combat and other related subjects. Trainees are subjected to sit in desks that are completely made of hair and watch Fro draw terribly on a whiteboard and ramble on for three hours straight. Pop quizzes are usually given at the end.

Day Two: General exercises and combat practice. Trainees are required to perform a series of intensives workout regimens and cannot leave until all of their circuits have been completed. Workouts are usually varied and never stay the same.

Day Three: One on One Sparring. Members are pit against one another in friendly sparring matches. The matches operate on a round robin format, in which the rounds do not end until each trainee has fought against one another at least once. There are two rounds in total.

Day Four: Specialist day. Trainees are required to complete a set of unique exercises that are tailored to improve specific strengths for each individual trainee. The exercises vary from trainee to trainee.

Members of the MRFD are also required to adhere to the official uniform policy, which consists of a purple tracksuit for gym related activities, and a field uniform consisting of a black sleeveless hoodie with a golden emblem of a fist clutching either a pencil or a paintbrush (dependent on the Raider’s main occupation), dark green combat trousers, black fingerless combat gloves, and a purple armband with the letters MRFD labeled in gold. On top of that, members are also required to memorize and follow the division’s official rules, all two hundred and seventy nine of them (most of which, are absolutely ridiculous). The Division currently has six members and they are as follows:

Fronomenal- Head Coach

Mahluaand Milk- Assistant Coach

Fortis Scriptor- Trainee

Eukocar- Trainee

Greentrap- Trainee

Filia- Trainee
