Recently players in the real world have occasionally found the lines between reality and the game blurred… And not in the sense they forget what reality is. Instead monsters from Celestia, and even pieces of the environment, have appeared in the real world. Though every time they fade after a time. Also some players have been swept up into the game, taking on their in game characters form and abilities from Celestia when they find themselves there. These players have come to be called ‘Crossover Players’, at least among people that believe the stories and rumors.
Why this happens is unknown. The company behind Celestia claims this is the ramblings of some delusional people. Players who speak up about having seen these things are banned. The company erases posts on their message boards about it and for the most part the other players tend to believe this is all silly rumors. A few players know the truth though, most of them have been physically in the world of Celestia. Often when not even around their PC. Even players who have been banned from accessing the game normally after speaking up have found themselves back in the game in person.
Those who roam around the right places may even hear odd talk of how one of the lead developers of the game disappeared mysteriously soon after the game went live. However the number of people who have had crossover experiences have been low. Some suggest it’s no more than a couple hundred people across the world.
