In the year 2022, the Virtual reality Massive Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (VRMMORPG), Sword Art Online (SAO), is released. With the Nerve Gear, a virtual reality Helmet that stimulates the user’s five senses via their brain, players can experience and control their in-game characters with their minds.


Welcome to Sword Art Online, the first Virtual Reality MMORPG! With the release of Akihiko Kayaba's new affordable NervGear, you can play Virtual Reality video games in the safety of your own home.

In Sword Art Online, you will get the opportunity to explore Aincrad, the floating city! High above the ground, Aincrad awaits you, with its one hundred floors. As a player, your role is to conquer these floors, defeating each floor boss hidden in their dungeon, and fighting your way up to the final boss on the one hundredth floor.

To aid you in this role, you will have access to a huge variety of weaponry. From the ordinary sword, to the exotic Chakram, if you can name it, it's in the game. However, just obtaining a weapon will not make you a master of it. But not to worry, Sword Art Online features the new feature «Sword Skills» that will allow any novice to fight like a pro. These «Sword Skills» assist player combat, allow them to use master level attacks.

In the game of Sword Art Online, fighting the multitude of monsters found in Aincrad is not the only thing to do. A selection of other activities await you, like sewing, smithing, trading, or even fishing!

As one of the first one thousand players, you'll have the first chance to explore the amazing floating tower of Aincrad. So feel free to do so. Hunt, fish, grind, raid, the world is yours to explore.

Argus and the Sword Art Online Staff in particular would like to thank you for your patronage. We wish you the best of luck on your journey, and leave you with some advice.

Remember to work together, take everything in stride, and most importantly, have fun! Enjoy the game!

What the fudge is this?

Hm? That little thing above? That was just a cheery little introduction into the amazing world of Sword Art Online, which you'll be playing.

No, seriously, I [watched the anime/read the light novel]. What the fudge is this snickerdoodle?

I don't quite know what you're talking about? Sword Art Online is the most talked about video game being released! You should try it, and just relax. After all, video games are meant to be fun!

Alright, fine. How do I get into this thing?

Well, I'd like a character sheet. A character name, a gender, an age, appearance, two starting skills (which I'll list in just a sec), a background, friends and family members, and a basic stat sheet would do nicely. In addition, I'll also give you a perk!

K. What skills can I pick?

Hold on. Let me pull all this cupcakes up.

[ ] One-handed Longsword
[ ] One-handed Short Sword
[ ] One-handed Curved Sword
[ ] One-handed Battle Axe
[ ] One-handed Rapier
[ ] One-handed Mace
[ ] One-handed Warhammer
[ ] One-handed Short Spear
[ ] One-handed Knife
[ ] One-handed Shield
[ ] Two-handed Longsword
[ ] Two-handed Battle Axe
[ ] Two-handed Mace
[ ] Two-handed Warhammer
[ ] Two-handed Assault Spear
[ ] Detection
[ ] Hiding
[ ] Tracking
[ ] Listening
[ ] Night Vision
[ ] Extended Weight Limit
[ ] Sprint
[ ] Acrobatics
[ ] Medicine Mixing
[ ] Parry
[ ] Knife-throwing
[ ] Light Shield Equipment
[ ] Leather Equipment
[ ] Light Metal Equipment
[ ] Equipment Appraisal
[ ] Tools Appraisal
[ ] Purchase Negotiation
[ ] Sales Negotiation
[ ] Hand to Hand Combat
[ ] Slash Weapon Forging
[ ] Thrust Weapon Forging
[ ] Blunt Weapon Forging
[ ] Light Metal Armor Forging
[ ] Light Leather Armor Working
[ ] Heavy Leather Armor Working
[ ] Heavy Metal Armor Forging
[ ] Metal Equipment Repairing
[ ] Leather Equipment Repairing
[ ] Metal Refining
[ ] Leather working
[ ] Sewing
[ ] Fishing
[ ] Cooking
[ ] Musical Instrument
[ ] Other (Subject to GM Approval)

*If you're asking where the exotic weapons are, you have to unlock them first.

What do you mean by stat sheet?

Wait, hold on, now I have to pull up this stuff, too....

Courage: Your general bravery. You're in a world getting in armed combat with monsters that can actually kill you dead. Do you have any balls? Can you put your life on the line?
Intelligence: General smartness, learning rate, strategy.
Charisma: Social skills, leadership.
Diligence: Determination, how long you can keep killing the same monsters for XP and Col over and over and over again, how long until stress begins to affect you.
Reaction Speed: Your reflexes and stuff.

Yeah, this is character stats, not game stats. You get a total of 14 points that you can distribute over them. Minimum for each stat is 1, max is 5. You can split points for 2.5. Average for each stat is two.

Perks? I heard Perks.

Sheesh, jump straight to the interesting stuff, why don't you. Yeah, you'll be getting some perks as well.

[ ] Beta Player
[ ] Real life skill in _________
[ ] Real life friends in game
[ ] Game developer Hahahaha, no.

So, how's this system work?

Well, there's an element of chance, represented by dice rolls. I'll be rolling the dice rolls for you to save time. They'll mostly be dice + applicable stats + circumstance , divided by half of the dice roll, multiplied by in game stats. If I find it applicable, I'll also roll spot checks, although I won't tell you when I do.

Although, if you really wanted to find out, and I suppose you could just go to invisible castle and search under your character's name.

You gain skills slots when you level up. Here's the progression.

Level 1: 2 slots
Level 5: 3 slots
Level 10: 4 slots
Level 20: 5 slots
Level 30: 6 slots
Level 40: 7 slots
Level 50: 8 slots
Level 60: 9 slots
Level 70: 10 slots
Level 80: 11 slots
Level 95: 12 slots


[B]How many players.

Prob four, because I can't keep track of people for snickerdoodles. If I get a co-GM, I may bump that number up. Maybe.

P.S. If you bribe me enough, I'll do almost anything. ANYTHING.

P.P.S. I also censored all the cursewords. Now, you get treated to delicious baked goods instead of profanity! Yay!

There's a secret piece of code in the program that does that. I'm not kidding. The younger you are, the more likely you are to get a cute familiar. I think Akihiko watched too much magical girl anime.


Can I use a halberd (a slashing polearm) instead of all those thrusting polearms? I just don't feel like thrusting my manly, throbbing spear into people, and rather swaffle them to death.
NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOt yet. You have to first master the ways of the thrusting spears, those penetrating poles, before you get halberds. It's like how Klein unlocks katana from using a curved sword skill a lot.

We're not speshul snowflake enough to dual wield. Who thought this was a good idea, making a game lacking magic already and then even taking away the ability to dual wield for everyone but a single player?

You get <<Heavy Metal Armor>> after you level up the light armor enough. <<Battle Healing>> is just consistently get your health into the red zone.

TO OBTAIN <<Battle Healing>> IS TO WALK WITH DEATH

Also, I got Kirito's stat block start game here for anyone that's interested:

Courage: 4

Hey, guess who min maxed and chose Social as her dump stat?

That's right, Homura, miss "I'm gonna just show up and be mysterious".

Guess who spent most of the show distrusted by everyone and attacked by the very same people she tried to help?

Homura again, the girl who couldn't even speak a whole sentence to anyone other than Madoka because she was antisocial as fuck.

Now then, who do you think was the one who had to face the final boss alone because she couldn't communicate well enough with her fellow Magical Girls to keep them from dying in stupid ways?

Oh yeah, Homura again, the one who thinks a bunch of stolen military weapons is more important than teamwork and friendship.

So let this be a lesson to you. Don't dump social, or you'll regret it. And then you'll become a witch, and you won't even be able to do that.

Mami did okay! She dun goofed in ep 03 exactly b/c she let it get to her head. Kyouko also managed before she had to cross paths w/ the others; plus, she was an interloper in the city's territory, and outright hostile, anyway.

There's no limit on the skills you can learn in SAO iirc, but considering the game sucks up your time at a level equal to IRL, it's conceivable that a starting player would only be good at one or two things.

Jemnite
February 2nd, 2013, 12:34 PM
>CHARISMA

Charisma is pretty snickerdoodle useless in combat. I mean, when are you ever going to use charisma to fight something? The answer: NEVER. But that's not to say Charisma isn't a useful skill.

Charisma is indeed useful, in social situations as well as out in the field. If you want to calm an unreasonable player down, charisma is the stat to use. If you want to have a higher chance of joining a party, charisma is the stat to use. You can even pacify hostile mobs with high enough charisma in the right circumstances. Charisma is in no way useless. All of these stats are useful.

Charisma one is pretty much the worst you can get at talking to others. At that point, you're essentially antisocial. You can't talk to other without making them angry, or having yourself feeling uncomfortable. I blocked you guys from going lower than one, because at that point you'll start to develop neuroses and you won't even be able to talk to others. It's in the same sense that bravery lower than one would prevent you from even walking out of the starting city, diligence lower than one would give you ADHD and nervous meltdowns all the time, reaction speed lower than one would make you a tortoise, and intelligence lower than one makes you brain damaged.


There's no limit on the skills you can learn in SAO iirc, but considering the game sucks up your time at a level equal to IRL, it's conceivable that a starting player would only be good at one or two things.
I think he's talking about the skill slots. You can only have two skills active at the same time at level one. You'll get more slots as you level up, and you can switch them out, but in MMORPGs, specialization works somewhat better than flexibility.

Unless you're really not a party player. Wait..... that's a large percentage of the characters that got submitted. WELPH

It's okay. I'm sure that your backstory includes enough of a family to get fed, right? Dying IRL of dehydration after 3 days because your 1.5 charisma drove away your family and those who could have been your friends is no fun.

actually, I have 4.5 charisma with a mother and father and a Uncle who's a doctor/physician (I don't remember which one), also a small club worth of friends in the Health Committee Club

Excellent you definitively won't die by the actions of those outside! They won't do something dumb like try to free you, so now your Gluttony is free to run rampant until you disconnect!

If you put it that way, it makes my character looks like an ass while everyone is worried about him....

Well he did play the game orignally to relax and what is more relaxing then virtual cooking and fishing?

What about your character, is he or she socially well off that they won't leave/kill you and put your body in a ditch somewhere?

Btw we give our profiles to jeanitte right?

He'd never leave anyone in a ditch. For the same reason that his charisma is so low, actually. But his family cares enough, and a long 100 (76?) floor nap is just gonna make them care more. In the meantime, he will need a proper anime recruitment episode to even join a party. Because he's damaged inside and CRAWLING IN...HIS SKIN ♪♫♪ THOSE WOUNDS, THEY WILL NOT HEAL ♪

Hm, that makes me think of something.

Why did our characters decide to play SAO anyway? My guy did it to channel pent up aggression that built up because of his natural irritability and slow lifestyle.

Mine retreated into the geek life including MMORPGs, and then got SAO as a reconciliation gift.


That said, will rejected profiles be used as canon fodder? People who die and stuff?

llednaroth, clear your message box. I can't respond.

Not really. Kayaba sends out a message to the authorities about what happens, and how they have to bring the victims to a hospital, and locations of the victims. A couple people die because their friends or family members pull the cord or try to remove the helmet, but otherwise most everyone ends up in a hospital.

I probably wouldn't kill my players off like that. Seems like somewhat of stupid death.

^ Does not get the reference to that.

No. You just aren't skilled with it, and will have to learn in game. That said, even someone unskilled can swing round a sword and bring it up to block. they just won't be too good at it.
