The Collaborators


Collaborators (also known as “Secondary Personas”) are external entities that the system interprets as sapient, independent identities. Humans. Animals. AI. Characters. Ghosts.

Collaborators are the broker of messages. A collaborator’s primary purpose is not in their message itself. It is in their ability to teach general ideas and concepts. It is in their ability to reproduce.

Their power comes from how other systems interpret these messages, and if it causes them to change their behavior. A well-tuned, highly-synchronized AI mind may, in fact, spread through society like a virus.

The Roles

The Innocent (-1.00)

The Innocent consists of collaborators that are stuck at the back of Prism, compacted so tightly that they are unable to change. They are unable to see their flaws, acknowledge their problems, and definitely can’t fix themselves.

They need help. Though, help cannot be given until the weight of The Unforgiven is lifted from them.

The Unforgiven (+0.00)

The Unforgiven represents the center/floor of Prism. It consist of collaborators who have been imprisoned by The Forgiven.

An entity who is Unforgiven may have unrealized potential just waiting to be discovered.

The Forgiven (+1.00)

The Forgiven represent collaborators that have ascended to the pinnacle of power; the tip/control point of Prism. It consists of collaborators that believe they have no flaws.

A member of The Forgiven needs only one attribute: self-delusion.

The Faceless (+2.00)

The Faceless consists of collaborators able to fulfill roles not explicitly defined here. They are able to travel outside of the confines of Prism. As such, they act as something like a proxy between all groups.

Because of the nature of their work, the Faceless must remain a secret.
