Salutations all. This idea was whizzing around my head since july/august, until I decided to make it as an RP, but then decided I liked it better as a story. Now, be warned, if the title didn't give it away, that this is a Digimon story, so wee-a-boo's and trolls best leave now.
AN IMPORTANT NOTE ON DIGIMON:
Digimon who have been redisigned for the Sixth Season of Digimon: Digimon Xros Wars, or the Seventh Season Digimon Xros Wars: The Hunter Boys who Leap through Time! are the Digimon. Ex: BANDAI considers Greymon to reffer to Kiriha Aounuma's Blue "Xros Wars" Greymon. Where as Tai's "Original" Greymon is now "Greymon-L" the "L" meaning "Legend" so if Beelzemon, Cyberdramon, Greymon, Bombmon, Knightmon, MetalGreymon, Starmon appear then I mean the Xros Wars Versions. Beelzemon-L, Cyberdramon-L, Greymon-L, Bombmon-L, Knightmon-L, MetalGreymon-L, Starmon-L will reffer to the Originals.Incidentally, I will also be apllying it to Kudamon, Agumon, Falcomon and Crowmon from Digimon Savers. Also, MetalGreymon-L reffers to the Original, Purple, Virus-Type MetalGreymon from the very first V-Pet from'91 (I think), RealMetalGreymon reffers to Tai's Vaccine version from Digimon Adventure.
Now. This is a heavily deconstructive story, with very little in common with the way Digimon has been portrayed in any media, even Tamers will be a ray of sunshine compared to this. No, it has more in common with "Neon Genesis Evangelion", "Revolutionary Girl Utena", "Serial Experiments Lain" and "Puella Magi Madoka Magica". Good, now that that will have scared away most of those that would say "NUH! THIS AIN'T MAH DIGIMANZ!" I can describe the plot.
Digimon are programs,( like Word or Publisher from Microsoft Office) that have gained self-awareness. These Digimon have no form in the "Real" World and thus, can only manifest in a Digital Field. They also only appear as differant Digimon dependant on what data they absorb upon creating a Digital Field. Although there are differant types, all Digimon are technically the same species.
All Penultima Kilo are speaking he same language. David may think he's speaking english, and indeed, it will sound english to ordinary humans, but its not. That is why all Penultima Kilo can understand each other, and is also why (despite my own love of them) Japanese honourifics will not be present. Why? Because you are reading this story as if the D-Spacer is translating everything everyone says. -Kun is Japanese, so why would it be present if Arakawa appears to be speaking english to David? It has no english equivalent. Some ones, like 'Hakase' or 'Dono' will be appropriately translated as 'Doctor/Proffessor' (whichever is applicable), and 'Emperor'. As such, although Kaoru would introduce himself as 'Arakawa Kaoru', David, Chase, etc will hear it as 'Kaoru Arakawa' and it will be written that way. If you thought that this meant language as in foul language, then yes. There is a lot of that. These are older teens, after all. Some are even in their early twenties...
Digital Fields are a digital airspace which manifests around areas with computers. The stronger the Digimon, the more computers needed to manifest a Digital Field. Each Digital Field is different, not just for each species, but each individual Digimon as well. They resemble an area where the Digimon lives in the Digital World. Digital Fields are not detectable to the naked eye, but entering a building where a Digital Field has manifested allows the Digimon who it manifested for to harvest your brainwaves - killing you. Digimon do this to any unfortunate souls who are in the building when the field errects and to any who enter, unless The Contractor intervenes.
Abstract Digital Fields
Abstract Digital Fields are not the same phenomina as Digital Fields. Abstract Digital Fields defy all laws of physics, probability and cause-to-effect. All laws of Digivolution are ignored also, and they appear as some nightmarish landscape vaguley linked to the Server Digimon that created it. DigiCode appears here also, written in some maddened frenzy in the same unreadable script as the Paradigm Contract.
The Digital World
The Digital World is synonymous with the World Wide Web. What humans call the internet, the Digimon call "home". Not much is known about it's landscape.
A "Penultima Kilo" is a team consisting of one human and one Digimon born through a "Paradigm Contract". They posses a D-Arms, a Digivice used to allow the human to fight side-by-side with his/her partner. Using a side device known as a D-Spacer, the Kilo can detect Digital Fields and keep in contact across the reality barrier.
Modified from whatever digital apparatus the human half had at the time he/she contracted, like an iPod, a LapTop or a Mobile Phone. It is used to remain in-contact with the Digimon half and to detect Digital Fields. You can also connect to the Digimon Hunters Network and track other Penultima Kilo who enter your territory.
A weapon of some sort that is the primary "Digivice". Normally it takes the shape of a weapon, such as a sword or revolver, but sometimes it is directly connected to the human's power. If a D-Arms in the shape of a gun or a bow, it will need bullets/arrows etc.
Upon Contracting, the human half of the Kilo is given a special power, such as super speed or super strength, which they get to choose. The powers are designed to "level the playing field" between Digimon and Human.
Paradigm Contracts are the contracts The Contractor asks prospective Kilo members to sign. It is written in an ancient Digital Script, so neither Digimon nor Human knows what it really says, save for The Contractor.
Digimon Hunters Network
The Digimon Hunters Network is a communication network for Penultima Kilo, where they state their territory, ask for help, chat etc. All Hunters are obligated to make updates here, but being social is not at all.
The Spirit Adapter is a bejeweled adapter, which, upon being plugged into a computer, grants access to the Hunters Network. It is worn by the hunter somewhere on their body, like a ring or neckless.
A "Master Drive" is the term used to reffer to a Digimon who resides with in it's own Digital Field. Master Drive Digimon are the variety that have the capability to form a contract.
A "Slave Drive" is a term used to reffer to Digimon who are created in a Digital Field, not in the Digital World. Slave Drive Digimon are subservant to the Master Drive Digimon whose field they were created in, if a Master Drive Digimon with Slave Drive sub-divisions contracts, then the each and every Slave Drive Digimon created by the Master Drive will seperate and form their own miniature Digital Fields, eventually Digivolving into a copy of the Master Drive Digimon who created them. Slave Drive Digimon are always a lower form of the Master Drive Digimon who created them.
Server Digimon are Digimon that have similar thought processes to humans, and reside within Abstract Digital Fields, commanding vast armies of Slave Drive Digimon, known as Proxy Digimon. What causes Server Digimon is, however at the present, unknown
Proxy Digimon are Slave Drives that are created by Server Digimon, they are stronger and more numerous than normal Slave Drives, but any other differances are unknown at present.
The process in which a Digimon absorbs enough data to Digivolve into it's next form for as long as it remains in a Digital Field, once the field faids, the Digimon reverts. 10 DigiMemories, and a clear head, are needed to execue Battle Digivolution from the Rookie form to the Champion form.
The process in which a Digimon absorbs enough data to Digivolve into an even higher form, by sharing a unified goal with his or her partner. In addition to that, a clear head and 50 DigiMemories are needed to safely execute the program.
A "link" between two or more Digital Fields, allowing near-instantanious travel between places. Hunters can create these artificially, or, they can form "naturally".
The Data from a defeated Digimon can be stored in a special USB Memory Card - a DigiMemory. These can be used to trade with the Contractor for power-ups, such as a D-Skimmer, a D-Emulator or even a second special power. Rumour has it, he gives out a "D-Transer" very rarely, but no one knows what it is, how to obtain one, or even what it does. However, the DigiMemory's true purpose is food for Digimon who are part of a Penultima Kilo and, in sufficant quantities, Battle Digivolution.
Designed to function like a second D-Spacer. And, by extention, halve the DigiMemory requirements for Battle Digivolution. The Contractor states only 3 currently exist. 75 DigiMemories can be given to The Contractor in exchange for this device.
A D-Skimmer is designed to convert a Digital Field back into data upon defeat the Master Drive Digimon. D-Skimmers are obtained by The Contractor for 50 DigiMemories and are more common then D-Emulators
D-Proxies are devices made to maintain Digivolution to higher forms. Such as Kaoru's Tsukaimon permanantly being Piddomon. They come in four varieties:
D-Proxy A (Alpha): Allows for permanant Digivolution into the Champion form. Uncommon, as many Hunters are partnered with natural Champion Level Digimon. 50 DigiMemories to buy.
D-Proxy B (Beta): Allows for permanant Digivolution to the Ultimate form. The most common, though all four are fairly rare. 150 DigiMemories to buy.
D-Proxy Γ (Gamma): Allows for permanant Mega Digivolution. Only specific Digimon are capable of using it, therefore it is quite rare. 500 DigiMemories to buy.
D-Proxy Δ (Delta): Allows for Permanent Post-Mega Digivolution. Even fewer Digimon are capable of using this then the D-Proxy Γ, The Contractor confirms none even exist as of yet. It is 1,000 DigiMemories to buy.
No D-Proxy E (Epsilon) exists, because no Penultima Kilo will live long enough to even discover the Ultra Level exists.
A D-Transer is a mysterious device. No one knows what it does. It is rumoured that it is 500 DigiMemories to obtain, signifying it has great importance.
The Bandwidth Meter, is a meter on the D-Spacer which measures how much of a Hunter's Bandwidth he/she is using. The D-Spacer, along with the D-Arms and any other equipment they have, such as a D-Skimmer, D-Emulator, D-Proxy or D-Transer will emit an otherworldly incandescent glow - the patron colour of the hunter in question. The more Bandwidth used, the higher the level of synchronization, but also the higher the level of mental trauma inflicted on the hunter. The Bandwidth Meter can be lowered by feeding DigiMemories into the D-Spacer. 1 DigiMemory = 10% If the Bandwidth Meter drops below 0% then it is said a miracle will occur, however, if it exceeds 100% then...
The Contractor is a mysterious blind man wearing a leather greatcoat buttoned up all the way, he comes to people with strong wills if and when they unknowingly enter a Digital Field. He offers them a Paradigm contract, which will bind the Digimon and Human together forever and create a D-Arms, as well as transforming a D-Spacer and giving the human a special power. If you ask, he will also grant you any wish, to the limit of his power.
More to come...
