    Note: This isn't Canon Kingdom Hearts, but rather an Alternate Version of the setting in which Disney Worlds are replaced by Parallel Earths based on counterfactual histories. See below to see what the equivalent of Disney Castle is.

    Kingdom Hearts: The Lights of the Multiverse

    Long ago, there was One World, One Earth, and One Timeline, a world filled with Darkness and Light in unequal measures, with a greater proportion of Darkness to Light. This world, thought many, was doomed to fall, until one Hero delved into the secrets of the Light. He discovered that said Light flowed from an unseen land by the name of Kingdom Hearts, and that if he could just burst the barrier that seperated this world from this source of Light, he can save the timeline.

    And so, he did...but with unforseen consequences. For what was once one world was separated to many, each with varying levels of Light and Dark. Now, any possibility for Earth to change, even the 'absurd' and 'impossible' ones, now sprang off into its own timeline, creating, for the first time, a Multiverse. The weapon the Hero used to create the Multiverse is called the X-Blade (Pronounced Key-Blade), and, seeing the consequences of his actions, the Hero shattered it into several pieces.

    However, it was too late; the people of the various timelines saw, nay, knew, what had been done to them, and so created Lesser Keyblades in the shape of the X-Blade, so as to attempt to search for, and dominate, Kingdom Hearts. But, because of their hubris and ambition, they all failed, killing each other off except for a few repentant surviors, who swore off any attempt to dominate the Multiverse, and instead, chose to preserve it.

    In time, the people of the Multiverse forgot about The Hero, the X-Blade, and the survivors of the Keyblade Wars, and slipped into complacency, thinking that their worlds were the only true ones. And so, centuries of peace and development passed. Then, one day, on the world of Shining Field, a Scholar in the House of Wisdom discovered the secrets of the Past, of the Light...and Darkness.

    Only a few years after that, Shining Field burned, destroyed by an onslaught of Heartless, strange, black monsters with yellow eyes, who were resistant to most mortal weapons, and who, after destruction, merely reformed in another part of the world to continue their rampage. The Heartless consumed the majority of the inhabitants, man, woman, and child, before turning upon the Heart of the World, its Core of Light.

    After that, more worlds burned in quick succession, as Heartless began emerging everywhere, like an unchecked plague. Not merely that, but there were hints that the Heartless were...guided, controlled by an unseen intelligence. And as if to add to the chaos and strife of the situation, strange beings called the Nobodies also emerged, sometimes fighting the Heartless, sometimes conquering their own stretches of territory.

    And the Keyblade Order...was nowhere to be seen.

    But there is hope: Creatures called Moogles have appeared throughout the worlds, offering trade links, technology and magic that would give the worlds a fighting chance against the Heartless, and finally, ships that can connect to other worlds. In addition to this, people from all over the world with strong hearts have begun manifesting Keyblades of their own, weapons that are super-effective at killing Heartless, preventing them from reconstituting elsewhere. Now, the worlds prepare to strike back, and find out who is behind this strange onslaught on the Multiverse...

    -------

    If you found that too long to read, then here's a summary:

    Strange creatures called Heartless are taking over the worlds, the Moogles have come to save us through the power of trade, and people are spontaneously manifesting the Keyblade, a weapon that kills Heartless in droves. Also, there's Magic. And Technolgy. Sometimes a combination of both. Oh, and instead of Disney-based worlds, you get to travel to alternate timelines.

    1.) No Godmoding or Powergaming, aka no controlling other players' actions, no defeating your enemy in one shot, and no shrugging of all hits without a magical shield.
    2.) Any consenting relationship between people of the same age group is allowed, whether it's Homosexual or Hetrosexual. If you cannot stand such things, don't post here in the first place.
    3.) Be polite to others.
    4.) Yes, you can play a non-human if he/she/they are not overpowered.
    5.) All players must come from a universe with Humans and with a connection to Earth/Earth History. It can be as unrealistic as you want, but it must be A.) coherent, and B.) have at least some baseline Humans.
    6.) Final Fantasy Magic works everywhere except when Final Fantasy Anti-Magic is applied.
    7.) Please post once a week.

    World Sheet
    Name: Renovation (written by Soverihn)

    Summary of History: The Second Palailogoi Civil War, which in IRL, destroyed the Byzantine Empire as a Great Power, went the other way, with Serbia not interfering and the victory going to the Regency faction, who successfully reformed the state to lessen the aristocracy's power, redistribute land back to the peasants, increase the numbers of the navy, and take the Empire in a maritime, commercial, direction, trading with other nations instead of depending on landed estates. In time, this reformed Empire retook Anatolia using divide-and-conquer tactics, judicious alliances, and finally, luck.

    It then used its position as a manufacturer of luxury goods, like Silk, to withstand the shock of the discovery of the Americas upon its economy, building the Empire 'tall' instead of 'wide', focusing upon economic and cultural pursuits instead of military conquests, as well as education. Despite this, they withstood more civil wars, foriegn invasions, and coups, forcing them to keep developing their military.

    Note, this is conjecture as the Timeline hasn't been finished yet: In modern times, the Byzantines can be credited with the invention of the Tank, the Stealth Fighter, and Rocket Artillery. Ever since the Enlightenment, they have also been a religiously tolerant state where Christians and Muslims live happily...as long as they speak Greek.

    Important Nations (Great Powers, etc.): Byzantine Empire (Modern-Day Greece, Albania, Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, parts of Serbia, Turkey, and Crimea. Oh, and Cyprus, and parts of Syria), Timurid Sultanate of Egypt (Egypt, Hedjaz, Yemen, and the Levant), Chobanid Empire (East Iraq, Iran, parts of Afghanistan and the Caucasus), France, England, Marinid Sultanate (Granada and North Africa), Alternate!Spain (Castile-Portugal), Aragon, Italy formed by Naples, Alternate!Germany, The Avingon Papacy and its rival/competitor in Salzburg Unknown New World Powers, and China.

    Note: Much of this is conjecture.

    Overall Technology Level: Modern-day.

    Map: Optional; don't hesitate to add your world just because you don't yet have a map!

    List of Destination Worlds:

    1.) Ongoing World War II - The year is 1950...and the war is still occurring, due to the fact that the Nazis, using dark sorcery, have learned how to control the Heartless and unleash them upon the Allies, who are only saved from the verge of defeat by forming an alliance with Independent Keyblade Wielders and Nobodies. Not merely that, but Stalin has his own, dark plans to take control of the Heartless from Hitler. But, they will all find out that Darkness is not a toy...

    2.) Puella Magi Madoka Magica - For the history of mankind, a race known as the 'Incubators' have uplifted young women from all walks of life, giving them great power as Magical Girls, and then feeding from said Magical Girls' descent into 'Witches', eldritch abominations that inflict suffering even as they are weighed down by the pain and despair of their lives. And, of course, the Heartless and Nobodies are added to the mix!

    3.) Shimabara Triumphant - It is the Year 1669, 30 years after the Shimabara Rebellion held out long enough to force the Tokugawa Shogunate into a negotiated settlement that included lower taxes and freedom to worship. Japan had to revoke its policy of isolation from the world as a result, a development disliked by the ruling classes. Now, under a new Shogun, Tokugawa Ietsuna, an excuse has been found to revoke the Shimabara Peninsula's autonomy and invade the land once more with Dutch help, endangering the new Princess of Heart - Shiro Amakusa's daugther, who was never born in the Original Timeline!

    Interlude World: To Be Announced.

    4.) Fallout: Apocalypse Averted - The world of Fallout...only the Bombs didn't fall as the Big Bad took over and promised the leaders of the US and China that if they submitted to him, he would replenish all of Fallout Earth's natural resources and give them unimaginable power - which he did. Now, the US and China provide immense numbers of troops armed with Power Armor, Lasers, Plasma Guns, and Gauss Rifles and all that Atompunk stuff to supplement the Heartless!

    5.) Cleopatra's Ambition - Cleopatra and Marc Antony have won the Battle of Actium, but at such a staggering cost that they were unable to follow up their victory with an attack on Italy itself. Now, ten years later, Antony has died of sickness, leaving Cleopatra defenseless against a renewed assault from Octavian, who is now supported by the Big Bad with several Legions of Heartless. But now, Cleopatra's 21-year old daughter, Cleopatra Selene, has exhibited powers of her own that her as a Princess of Heart, one in need of rescuing.

    Interlude World: To be Announced, the previous entry has been removed.

    6.) A Queen of Hearts, not a Princess - The Battle of Bosworth ends with the death of both Henry Tudor and Richard III, leaving Elizabeth of York as the best claimant to the English throne. But as it would be decades before the country's people can even accept the idea that women can rule on their own right, most of England's nobles are now trying to marry one of their sons to the Yorkist Princess and hoping to gain control of the Kingdom that way. Elizabeth of York is also vital to the salvation of the Multiverse as she is a Princess of Heart, and thus the PCs are tasked to save her from the Heartless and a loveless marriage.

    Interlude World: To be Announced.

    7.) The Ruins of Old Earth - In 2019, Ascot Carver, the one who discovered Magic and the X-blade, sought to use the mystic weapon to avert a nuclear war. He got his wish, but after all nuclear weapons were destroyed and a spell was cast to prevent people from using nuclear energy for anything violent, the nations of the world simply turned against each other in a conventional war that broke the world order and the economies of all Great Powers. Now, Earth is wrecked by conflict, pollution, and climate change, and while modern technology still exists, society has been pushed back to feudal levels of organization. But there is hope, hope in the Last Princess of Heart and the compassion of other worlds.

    8.) The Tomb of Ascot.

    9.) Playable Epilogue?

    Name: Rakutsu Hayasa

    Appearance:

    [​IMG]

    Bio: Rakutsu’s life wasn’t anything special. He lived in a fairly normal version of Japan, under the care of his mother and grandfather. The old man taught him martial arts and swordsmanship, which the boy didn’t see as needed skills. But his grandfather didn’t stop the lessons.

    His only friend was a girl from school, who made it a habit to be by his side. She kept talking to him about leaving Japan one day. To go to different places, like fairy tails. He thought her to be stupid for thinking of such things. But she kept talking about it. She even showed him her book of different fairy tails.

    Unknown to Rakutsu, his grandfather was a former member of a group of keyblade wielders and a traveler of worlds. The training he placed the boy under was in preparation for the day he will reveal the existance of these worlds and the heartless.

    Age: 15

    Skills:

    -Peak Physical Condition
    -Expert Martial Artist
    -Swordsmenship
    -Expert Cook
    -Household Maintenance

    Personality:

    Rakutsu is a stotic, introverted, and serious young man. His family’s bad money and living situation forced him to grow up at a young age and leave his child like mentally in the trash. His words are hardly ever sugar coated and he doesn’t have much of a sense of humor. However, no one can say that he doesn’t have a heart .
