Now, the world and lore behind the fighting game series might be a bit foreign to some of you. First thoughts might be to rush over to the MK Wiki. And I say, please do! But don't take everything there at face value. If you did, what would be the point of this thread?

Right off the bat, all I can say to the upcoming events of MK X (or Ten, if you want to be technical) is...they didn't happen. Why? Too much of a hassle to wait for the release. I know, I'm lazy. The story here, as such, diverges completely following the events of the previous (brilliant) game. Several things -do- happen that match with canon, such as Kotal Kahn becoming the Emperor of Outworld and the Netherrealm invasion.

Now, the biggest changes I would enact revolve around the tournament itself. Since it was originally conceived to protect the realms from invasions and forced mergings (thank you Shao Kahn) and all current -big- threats are dead and gone, the tournie would've undergone heavy revisions. Now, it's an event held every ten years between the three major realms - Outworld, Earth, and Edenia - with the victor granted a single wish by the Elder Gods. Additionally, the victor themselves become the current champion of Mortal Kombat, and the "final boss" of the next tournament.

The wish itself has several restrictions. Because of the harsh experiences with inter-realm wars, wishes cannot be used to benefit the victor's own realm to the point where they are a danger to other realms. Other basic restrictions exist: you cannot become a god or supremely powerful, etcetera etcetera.

Sound good? Good!

((Note: If something else hits my brain like a mallet, I -will- update this.))

Oh yeah! For everyone who hasn't played/seen the latest released MK game, here's a link that the ever-present Thigh-sen implanted in my brain! Please watch it all to get a sense of what my RP derives from.

Just a heads-up to all those participating or otherwise interested: Qunai has agreed to implement a series of changes that I came up with for the Elder Gods as well as the preexisting / canonical characters Ermac, Cyrax, Jackson Briggs, Johnny Cage, Kabal, Kano, Kenshi Takahashi, Kurtis Stryker, Quan Chi, Sektor and Sonya Blade.

These changes overall will not effect his story, thus I won't be listing them. However if you want to make sure that your story doesn't clash with anything, then I advise you to send me a PM asking about what all differs from canon.
