WELCOME TO OUR MULTIVERSE.
You've slipped through the ephemeral veil of gossamer that separates your own world from ours. It is a train which mysteriously brought you here. These trains also serve as our lifeblood by interconnecting our six dimensions.

Hialao is the nucleus, a modern, sunny and hospitable seaside realm; Wildewall is steeped in tradition, good for those with archaic roots and a taste for wilderness; Elestis is the fantasy land of ever-tumbling magic and whimsical imagination; Parse whirs like the massive digital machine that it is, advanced and technological.

Barrows is the breeding ground of chaos, with refrains of grunge and anachronistic crime; Tethya is the small but glorious underwater world reminiscent of Victorian times; and those who don't feel at home in any of these places, or simply like to wander, are known as Drifters.

if parse is an atom then the central unit is the nucleus. this town square is massive, its streets wide to accommodate the heavy traffic that moves throughout. shops are situated on every level, their lights always on, their doors never closed; the streets aren't illuminated by streetlamps but by the billboards that loom floating overhead, enormous screens that flicker between advertisements suspended in mid-air. though daylight never touches this dimension, it's as bright as noon here, but in neon colors, and at any hour there is a steady, humming noise of people - artificial and otherwise - and of machines. police presence here is heavy, order needed to keep everything running smoothly and the citizens in line.

in this dimension, where no one sees the light of day, life seems like one long party - and in the entertainment part of parse, they're doing nothing to deter that. there are countless clubs and bars and arcades - but perhaps the most popular pasttime of the citizens of parse is the virtual reality combat game called 'interface'. having fun and using free time on recreation isn't quite as taboo in parse as it may be in other worlds; in fact, it's encouraged, and as long as you have the credit to support yourself in your habits, then letting loose is entirely acceptable - it may even be expected. some good things come with the party atmosphere - like innovative fashion and trends - but there's always the other side of the coin: recreational drug use, addiction, and dealing.

travel in parse is made easier by three separate levels of travel, each one higher in the air than the last. rules are strictly enforced where these circuits are concerned; anyone found violating the rules will be detained. the lowest level are for those traveling on foot; the second level for those with motorcycles; the third for those traveling by shuttle. the shuttle itself is free to all citizens and can be accessed by elevators on every street corner; motorcycles can be purchased from dealerships throughout parse. SHELL is a heavy presence in the streets of parse, their three-wheeled vehicles able to bypass all the rules that everyone else must obey.

SUBFORUMS:
residences of all sizes are available here in parse, but no matter how small the house, the technology remains. they're all smarthomes, each with its own personal artificial intelligence unit which can be customized to change its name, personality, and voice. this unit can be instructed to do anything from lock the doors to do dishes to run a bath and is designed to recognize its owner and any other frequent visitors, if instructed. basic furniture is provided upon first moving in, but upgrades can be purchased if something more glamorous is preferred. there is always something bigger and better waiting for those that have the credit for it.

the entirety of parse is run by a single company - BIOS. the owner of BIOS, the CEO and therefore the one with absolute power, is unknown to the citizens of this world as of yet, though some of the higher-ups in management serve as mouthpieces to communicate to parse's citizens. BIOS wasn't always the biggest power in parse, but when they seized control of the dimension's power source - the nectar that flows in rivers into the massive city - they seized control of the entire world. BIOS controls everything, from commerce to the police force to the very air the citizens of parse breathe, and has been, for the most part, fair in its rule - though it's only a matter of time before the power goes to its head.

outside of the city itself, beyond the jurisdiction of the police and out of the reach of BIOS is the junkyard. here, anything broken, old, unused, forgotten gets dumped in mountains of metal and wires. years ago, no humans ventured out here, only drones that carried the unwanted junk - but eventually, inhabitants of parse began to make their way out here. the culture in the junkyard is entirely different from that in the city, most all comforts gone and law ignored. there is dirt, grunge, and broken metal - rough in everything where the city itself is smooth. dirt roads wind through mounds of damaged goods and lead to a broken-down city pieced together with relics of the past.
