Welcome to the collective lore of the Whisper universe and its stories. This is a hybrid resource for both lore and mechanics, so please use and maintain this resource for lore references, game information, and other helpful pages pertaining to Whisper. This is a storyverse, containing a multitude of stories contributed by various individuals for various settings. While there is a "central" story to Whisper (Whisper Online) the expansive universe of Whisper goes wherever its role-players take it, making its settings a true role-playing multiverse that's canon acknowledges and connects to several places real and fictitious.

Throughout the multiverse, whispers of eldritch tales reach far and wide to those who might answer the call. Esoteric magicks entice you to follow a path delving into ancient history riddled with conflicts between those that strive for co-existence and those that do notโ€” how far will you travel and what role will you take in the story of all? The worlds of Whisper explore the history and consequences of actions by the Stairellans, an ancient race of creators that once flourished as a kingdom within a guarded crystal world Brilliance surrounded by a stardust desert called Baku. A distant world beyond an infinite light called Radiance, the birthplace of "All", hides a secret world Ai'Lynel that holds the key to greater answers.

โš ๏ธ Game Disclaimer

Whisper is a game and system first, and a collaborative writing project second. Just as players cannot simply change the core code of a MMORPG and all the flavor text within it, please understand this before engaging the gameplay as this is the core means the story has been built around for over twenty years, and will not be changing for the sake of personal preferences and playstyles.

Over twenty years in the making, Whisper is a game told through rapidfire (fast one-liner) dialogue and real-time action events similar to the experience of playing a MMORPG, which is the ultimate medium Whisper is intended to take. Players have the freedom of entering at any given point of the story as it developers without any real prerequisites; however, players should understand the difference between normal role-playing, and role-playing using Whisper's world.

Whisper provides background lore and structured events for players. Players are expected to use this Wiki knowledge-base for their own character development and scene creation. Like most MMORPGs, Whisper itself does not focus on providing individualized lore events for each player outside of the core main story events. It is up to you to create paragraph role-playing scenes with those interested in delving deeper into speculations, inferences, and personal story writing outside of core events.

There is plenty of role-playing to be had out there, and many players prefer to just write lore instead of play it like a game, so naturally, Whisper is not for everyone. We hope those participating understand and respect the sovereignty of a project like Whisper just as the author would respect the sovereignty of other players' story-worlds.

๐Ÿ“œ Story Contribution

You are participating in a lifelong collective tale that may influence not only the "main" story of Whisper, but the stories of everyone else participating. Do not participate if you are the sort of person that will up and decide to retcon or delete your involvement in story development. By contributing to this Wiki, you are submitting your characters, plots, ideas, stories, and any other information to the Whisper story. You understand and agree that by creating and contributing to the Whisper universe, you are granting Whisper Online, Astral & Umbral (auxiv), and its creator/author an irrevocable license in perpetuity to the content herein. You are hereby granted license back to use your own contributions in Whisper for your own use, so long as that use does not infringe on Whisper's original copyrights or supplant the Whisper universe stories, games, and related products that come from it.

TLDR, don't be a jerk over your contributions to the story. We build the system and structure for you to enjoy and develop a story within. We will never outright steal your characters and stories, but once they're in the universe they can be referenced by ANYONE in the story as needed. This is a collective writing project under the roof of a game universe to be respected.

โœ๏ธ Using the Wiki

Whisper's pages should only display confirmed information that is canon to Whisper. Any speculation should be kept to the discussion tab of pages until validated. For game content, pages should focus on explaining the content itself, and any strategy discussions should go into the discussion tabs unless it's an explanation for a major meta strategy, for example, a sub-category explaining movesets or permanent farming strategies with little to no variance. Please DM Anai on the Astral & Umbral Discord for page creation and editing permission.

  • Stay On Topic: Any registered user that confirms their email can create and contribute to Discussion tabs.
  • Contributing: Creating and editing pages requires special permissions to be granted, noted above.
  • Content: This is not a free "RPC Wiki" but rather a wiki exclusively for Whisper content.
    • Exception: If you desire a RPC page separate from official Whisper pages, you are free to use your user page to list your RPCs, bios, and so on for reference. Actual character pages in the Wiki should be reserved for things permanent to Whisper's lore. (i.e., Page for Anai the User, Page for Anai in Whisper)
