Akashic Record
A omniscient database shattered by an unknown event, several years ago. Rumors told that once all the Akashic Shards come together to form the Akashic Record, the Record will show an upcoming apocalypse that will occur.

Akashic Shard
A fragment of the Akashic Record. It hold access to classes and abilities, and also possible information to the next location of the next shard.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If you want to provide more info, go ahead and post in this thread and I'll think about either editing or adding to the description of these items.

What if each Shard 'warps' the area that it is in? Since the whole has a lot of power within itself, I guess each piece would, too. I was thinking along the lines of:

- A mirage-like effect. Like a random of mirage in the middle of a forest or something.
- A strange-stone that one touches and is sent to a different dimension. Kinda like in Grimoire.
- A field that suddenly filled with the fears of whomever steps into it first.
- Uber-powerful boss monsters that get stronger depending on the number of shards left. Each boss could be mindless at first, but eventually become intelligent. So intelligent that they understand their own existences and fight to remain alive, by keeping their shard from becoming one with the others. Like, in the end, one shard will remain and a super-awesome-mega boss will be protecting it. It could almost be human and stuff or something.

Eh...example? (Slightly interesting, but how will it fall through?) I will determine if it's fine or not if the example is good.

Examples? Uh, sure... I guess...

Mirage

The area that the shard is in will be warped and appear to have a 'ripple' in that space. It's sort of like looking at a mirage in an area that couldn't possibly have one. I was thinking along the lines of just a mirage-like image, but there could be more with this one. For example, it could mess with the sense of direction and distance of people, so they get lost within the area, while people outside of the field of influence are unaffected.

Different Dimension

Like in A2, I was thinking of something like Sun/Moon stones that sent the hero and the team to some other area where they had to fight monsters. Like, maybe there has to be a seal for it first, and a group of monsters and a guardian they need to beat. The different dimension could be the world where the Akashic Record was created and one character, who can be chosen at random, can actually be related with it. This could add on to the story plot, where maybe creatures from the Akashic realm start to show up and people start to collect shards to stop them or something. Or, like, the chosen person will have dream sequences, which ultimately lead them to become a villain or something, where they see that the apocalypse was caused by something that they couldn't believe.

Fear Field

This is similar to the first two, except this one is most effective against the person who steps into its field of influence. For example, if the person is afraid of spiders, then the field will suddenly be swarmed by gigantic and tiny spiders that the heroes will have to defeat in order to reach the shard, which might be protected by a Spider Queen or something. Another example could be if somebody was afraid of water. The field could suddenly be surrounded by a box which is slowly filling up with water. There are jellyfish and shark monsters in the water and the heroes have to beat those to retrieve the shard. This can lead to some character development or something. If somebody is afraid of something like what other people think of them, then 'people' will appear or something. If someone is afraid of fear/death itself, then maybe zombies or a super demon appears.

Boss-Monsters

For this one, I was thinking along the lines of Demons or something. When they are weak, they are unintelligent. On the other hand, when they become stronger, their intelligence also increases. I think their power should be based upon the number of Shards that are left. They grow stronger as more and more shards are collected, sort of like what happened in 'The One.' Their shards could be hidden within themselves and can only be retrieved in two ways. The first way is to defeat the monster and just take it out. The second way is to have the monster take it out itself and hand it over. Boss-Monsters can be a lot of things and do a lot of things. People can actually role-play these guys, I think, later on, if the role-play is successful. Or, perhaps, these monsters are citizens of the Akashic Realm, all who were chosen without their knowing in joining a super-secret-universal war that nobody knows about.
