The inside of each dive shop is pretty much the same. There are three to five pods connected to the diving machine that allow a person to enter a Reyvateil's cosmosphere. The dive shops are inexplicably always run by a member of the Teru tribe.
How to dive:
Once you've sent your Background info to the DM (Me in this case), she'll help you to make your cosmosphere. The DM will act as the Mind Guardian for your world, and help the partner to proceed through the levels. You are allowed no more than one level per dive session, up to a limit of 5 before the dive is considered in the realm of being in a relationship. A diver who gets Critical Down is forcefully booted fromt he cosmosphere and may not dive again until trust is built up between diver and Reyvateil, and at times at DM discretion, may land in the hospital.
NPC Reyvateils (usually dive therapists) and Dive shop operators will always be under DM control.
The format for diving will be a turn by turn basis in which the Diver must help the Reyvatiel to overcome problems, along with the aid (or at the chagrin) of the Mind guardian.
There are very rare instances where the mind guardian will intrinsically trust the diver the first time he/she dives, but this only exists in cases of the Reyvateil and diver who are already good friends/childhood friends/relatives. Just because a Reyvateil likes and thinks she trusts a person does not mean her mind guardian will.
I ask that each Reyvateil Pick a seperate color for her Cosmosphere conversations to be in, so that they can be easily identified in case of multiple dives happening at the same time.
