PostSubject: Post-Apocalyptic Survival Mystery Thu Dec 19, 2013 7:27 am

Hey guys, I’m going to try to set up one of these RP things. I did this RP awhile ago as an AU subplot on a high school site I ran, but let’s do it again here and now with a fresh group of RPers. I’ll admit that I’m running a Hunger Games RP right now and we’re just about to launch into the Hunger Games so that’s a pretty big time commitment for me.

Background
In the year 2013, scientists predicted that an asteroid would strike the moon. But little did they know that this seemingly innocent—though spectacular—event would change the course of history forever. Those old enough to witness that night can say that it something they will never forget. It is a night emblazoned into the minds of millions. The moon, the great celestial body, grew larger before people’s very eyes. It was still clearly very far away, but it was ever so slightly bigger.

And yet that miniscule distance made all the difference in the lives of billions of people on planet earth.

The moon influences many things. The tides, disturbed by the moon’s change in distance to the planet, moved off kilter. Tsunamis plagued the planet. Volcanoes and earthquakes became commonplace. The air, thickened with ash, became a hostile environment. No longer could the sun shine down on the world, and the weather became spontaneous and wild. For the weeks following after the initial event, the world was torn between natural disasters. Cities crumbled to dust, civilizations fell, and those who ruled the world became nothing.

And yet people survived. The ones closest to the oceans were wiped out by tsunamis. The ones near volcanoes were smothered in ash and debris. But people are a resilient species, and they—like many other resilient species—adapted to the new world. Time passed. Food became scarce. The clouds of ash disappeared, the natural disasters settled, and the world began to calm. But the world hadn’t healed from the wounds ripped across its surface. People found a new norm and a new way of life.

Setting
The desert. Maybe it didn’t used to be one, but it is now. Who can say where it really is but somewhere in the heart of former America. The American government is somewhere now—rumor has it, they’re hiding in safehouses underground, creating a new world free from thick dust and starvation—but it’s up to the people to survive on their own. Men, women and children built a life out of the skeletons of the old world. Scavenging for most, hunting for what they can, and growing very little, they make do with what they have.

Our story, though, takes place in a motel on an abandoned road where once people stopped and laughed and sang. Now it’s but a lonely building on a dusty patch of earth that may never again see the beauty of spring and feel the rain upon its brittle bones. This is where our characters meet, strangers who have little in common.

Except for the envelope.

Everyone was invited, but no one knows why.

Characters
Characters may be of any age. They can be old enough to remember life before the event, or too young for it to be more than a story. However, all characters must be human. They cannot be overpowered. The point is to make realistic characters who will be subjected to a world vastly different from the one we know now. This is their world. They have known it for the past ten years . . . but not all things are as they seem.

We want:
- Regular folk
- Men and women
- Old people, young people, teens, kids, adults
- People with realistic flaws

We don’t want:
- Super badasses
- People with powers
- Extremely tragic pasts
- Material higher than PG-13

Information
You will be expected to fill out a character sheet ahead of time. Some characters are welcome to know each other (ie: you can have people travelling together) but no more than a couple in each group. The point is to take them out of their comfort zones.

An important thing is that in character actions have in character consequences. If your character does stupid stuff, expect to be punished (in character, of course) for the actions. This could mean death.

There is also a chance of random luck events. But the point isn’t to screw you guys over—the point is to make an exciting story with vivid characters and to bring this crazy world to life. I want an adventure RP with mystery. Something that really hooks you in and takes you for a crazy ride. I never got to finish it on my other RP, so let’s get it going, huh?

Who’s in?

I was hoping to get 5-6 players first. I don't know how many people are actually active on the site.

Well, people can always join in later if they decide to play on my RP. I just want a handful to start out with. I need to work on my Hunger Games because it starts tomorrow, but I'll be working on this one when I need a break from the other.

Why is a raven like a writing desk?

Because there is a B in both and an N in neither.
