Providence RP is a "people-with-powers" roleplay that focuses on exploring a chaotic world and making the unknown known. It is a world of imagination and strength of will, where belief and expectation play a major role in shaping reality itself.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
General & StartingMAKING AND LINKING SUB-ACCOUNTS
You register your character as a new account in this format: David Kronenberg (middle names optional). Using your OOC account, you can then link the accounts under "edit sub-accounts" in the "my controls" link at the top of the board.
WHAT YOUR CHARACTER CAN "BRING" WITH THEM
THE FASHION OF PROVIDENCE
CURRENCY AND TRADE
SettingDoes everyone speak the same language? If yes, why?
Yes, they do. The in-universe reason being that, as a sort of dreamscape, you immediately intuitively understand what is spoken or written to you. Though if you have a strong attachment to a specific language or culture, you may present yourself with a sort of accent from there. Sign language works similarly, despite ASL and BSL having differences, the gist of what is being conveyed can be understood.
Does my character need to be from a certain time period or place on Earth?
No, to both. Your character may be from ancient Egypt, if you so choose. They may be from the future or some distant planet or different universe. However, all characters still end up in the same place, so a futuristic character may find themselves very much out of place and out of touch in this more fantasy-bent world. Most player characters are human or some close proximity, and it would seem the Benefactor has a bias towards these forms.
Powers and RingsMust my ring be a ring?
While it is preferable that your ring is, in fact, a ring, it doesn’t have to be. If it’s far more befitting for your character, you may have it in a different form of worn jewelry. Bracelets, Earrings, Pendants, and the like are all perfectly viable.
Do I need to carry my ring to use it?
Not only must the ring be on your person, it must be ‘presented’ out in the open. So you can’t use your powers if you swallowed your ring, for instance.
Are there any forbidden powers?
Permanent strength/speed boosts - these are already governed by your psyche level. Furthermore, invincibility/immortality is not allowed.
Can Powers Affect Other Rings?
A: Yes, albeit always temporarily. Keep in mind any such power would have to overcome the other’s psyche.
Can having your race change (via werewolf bite, vampire siring, etc.) change your powers?
No. If your character ‘changes’ into some other race, they may have all the behavioural/aesthetic traits but none of the preternatural abilities.
Should I include time limits / cooldowns in powers by posts or minutes?
None, we do not have time or post limitations in power write-ups. It's important to have tangible trade-offs, but the goal is not to hinder your power, or allow your power to be used infinitely at will. Your limitations are relative to your rank; a C-rank will have more power they can use than a D-rank player.
So every talent is based entirely on my Psyche?
Every talent is based entirely on your psyche level, so it is unnecessary to specify this in your talent description. It's already implied simply by being a talent.
What kind of powers are encouraged?
Ones that can help save the world. +.+
