Welcome
to Pandora

By the hands of the Gods, you have been plucked from your time and from your world, dropped into the box. Only the box is a world of its own.

We are a mass crossover based on the concept of Pandora's Box. Characters from nearly any fandom can be played here. Because of the endless character possibilities, we are canon only here at Pandora. Take a peek at our rules and plot information before starting your new life in Pandora.

    Elsewhere

    In a land as vast as Pandora, some locations slip through the cracks. Beyond the Wilderness of Pandora are a host of far more mysterious places to explore. Often difficult to access, these places sometimes exist on a totally different level. The vast underground realm, the cosmic wilderness, and other planes of existence are only the beginning.

    The Cosmic Wilderness

    A vast cosmic universe stretches in all directions from the boxed world, though it is far too dense and richly populated with bright stars, vibrant gases, and heavenly bodies to be truly called "Space". Its composition seems to warp at a far more erratic rate than within the box; a black hole in one region may not be there the next day, and what was once a distance of five light-years across may expand or contract without warning.

    The Cantina
    The rickety remains of an establishment situated right at the edge of the Southern Ruins. It is nonetheless inexplicably operational. This "Cantina" is singularly run by a rusty old robot whose only purpose is to, apparently, brew one hell of a pint o' moonshine. Where do the ingredients come from? The robot will never tell. Not that it ever seems to speak aside from the five words, "How may I serve you," and always in that order.


    [​IMG]
    Northern Ruins
    Massive pillars half-buried in moon dust and crumbling archways, there are few structures still standing from what may have been an ancient civilization - or something placed there by the Pandora Pantheon to fool us. The only building which might pass for shelter is a circular tower hanging at an ostentatiously dangerous incline, with eleven floors of emptiness and dust. At least the view from its rooftop ought to be impressive.

    Southern Ruins
    The Southern Ruins hints at some portion of a futuristic city ravaged by atomic war. The deeper one travels, the greater the dangers of radiation - but also, inscrutably, the more intact the buildings.

    Skeleton Grove
    Not far from the Northern Ruins stands a small grove of thin, leafless trees long turned to white and hardened stone. There is something oddly spiritual about this grove.

    The Underground

    The Underground is a huge realm that stretches from one end of Pandora to the other. As it's name would imply, it's entirely beneath the Pandora we all know. But despite the earthen ceiling stretching over it, the Underground gets sunlight from a sun it cannot see, moonlight from a Moon that does not exist, and appears to function entirely as if it were the surface. Stranger still are abandoned cities, buildings, and settlements that dot its landscape that all seem to have belonged to one united and highly-advanced civilization.


    Locations

    [​IMG]
    UNNAMED CITY
    Compared to the topside, this vast city is located just north of Pandora Town. It is a massive and forsaken city of weathered white towers. Clusters of tall buildings rise up, interspersed with carefully tiered landscapes crafted for the illusion of rugged and wild. Roadways cut across massive gorges, connecting centers of activity that might have once been bustling if the city weren't a ghost town. Further down, however, is the true city cut right into the walls of the gorge, with skyscrapers extending down, layer upon layer, into the blue gleam of light and energy deep within the gorge.


    [​IMG]
    THE ROOST
    Located beneath the Tiberian Islands is The Roost. It's a taller building with harsh angles and dark metal, standing upon a tall plateau with dangerous cliffs on each side. A metal bridge connects it to the land on the other side. Unlike the above world, down here there is no sign of an ocean. Just a vast forest covering the valley below. The Roost is a surveillance station, with static-filled video feeds showing various parts of the Underground. Dormitories and a cafeteria can also be found here. Above The Roost, through the ocean floor, is an entrance to the underground.


    [​IMG]

    THE TEMPLE MAZE
    Deep beneath Mt. Pompeii is The Temple Maze. It is an unmapped area of branching corridors meant to get the traveler lost. Unlike other structures in the underground, the temple does not look futuristic and is made entirely of ornately carved stone. There are many booby-traps, and some are still functioning. At the center of the maze is a grand staircase up to a dais and a large statue of a robed woman. Her robes expand into a mess of darkness, billowing out beneath her before the stone was carved into elegant curves, with dark tendrils spiraling up around her.


    [​IMG]
    THE HUB
    Located in The Arid Lands, this area has been partially excavated, with its roof at ground level. It hallways connect to form a square, with an observatory room at each corner. The central room has no observatory, but instead has rows upon rows of them. On one is was a screen with a row of unfamiliar characters. They flip from character to character, changing rapidly at times, slowly at others. Its meaning is still unknown. Power has been restored to The Hub.

    Other Locations

    There are many other locations that can be found between the cracks in Pandora, that may not fit into one of the larger regions listed above.

    THE OTHERWORLD
    The Otherworld is a parallel dimension which is accessible in two ways: through dreams, and through crystal flowers found in the Whispering Woods and on the moon. Sometimes, it's a reflection of Pandora itself, possessing the same areas and buildings. Other times, it takes on more chaotic appearances, such as crumbling ruins or floating islands of rock. Other times still, it is a realm of peace, quiet and beauty, where a pure white light always shines and makes everything seem a bit brighter. No matter how or why you enter the Otherworld, it is as wondrous as it is dangerous.
