Storyline
[Storyline idea credited to tash_dragon, with revision by jenifermichelle and trenchcoatedson]


Paradise; we typically think of it as meaning 'heaven' or a wonderful place like it. But there are other definitions to this whimsical word. The Sanskrit "paradēsha" means "supreme country," the original English meaning was "royal hunting grounds," and the Greek "pairidaêza," borrowing from an old Iranian language, meant "walled enclosure." These terms are all far closer to the Paradise these people know.

To them, Paradise is the connection between worlds, the walls that keep them bound to each other. Until recently, these worlds were all separated, living a peaceful existence without knowledge of one another, with only one central world knowing about the others. This world was called Nexus, the center of Paradise, and their purpose in this place was to maintain balance. The disturbing backdrop to Paradise is a looming black hole, an ominous symbol that has churned in the background for as long as anyone can remember. When the balance between good and evil is disturbed, the black hole's power is effected, drawing in the many worlds of Paradise and seizing them forever in its frigid galactic grasp.

Like any quest for balance, Paradise is always in peril, and now more than ever. Forces who wish to overthrow Nexus and destroy Paradise lurk in the shadows constantly, and have now found a new method of attack: the worlds themselves. The latent portals, which had been sealed for years, were reactivated, opening worlds to attacks from outside...and in. While tyrants pillaged some worlds, others were attacked by internal rebellion by those who wanted to live as the other worlds did.

Nexus quickly became a landing pad for those either fleeing from their destroyed home worlds or searching for a new, better world to live in. As such, it became even more strictly patrolled to prevent internal rebellion or outside attack. Meanwhile, it had to continue its original struggle for balance...and the central world of Paradise was quickly losing that battle. The eternal black hole had once again become active and was eagerly taking its fill. Without help from its citizens, Paradise would surely be lost.
