Ok, so I have an idea blossoming, and I wanted to see if anyone would be interested to try it out on E. It is a apocalyptic themed roleplay, but not a zombie one, nor any disease ridden world. Instead I'm going more for a somewhat original idea (I hope).Back-story:
In the metropolis that is New York City, chaos reigns supreme over all. Over 296 days have passed since what has been called many names, but known by most as, 'Judgment Day'. The day not where the world ended, but Humanity. The estimated population of the Earth before Judgment Day, was 7.117 billion people. Over night, that number dropped to a little over 5 million. There was no war, no famine, no great catastrophe, no plague, no violent cannibalistic walking corpses. Just 6,995,000,000 human beings, vanishing into thin air. No bodies were left behind, no scraps of cloth, no blood, nothing. All of society, gone, in the blink of an eye. And that was just the beginning, because something even worse, and even more unthinkable, happened. And that's when the world ended.
Note: Just a few of the monsters that I thought of, obviously I didn't create them, they just somewhat fit the description that I came up with for "My" monsters.
I know, the Abomination from Marvel, but I rather like him as a mindless hell spawn creature thing.
Whatever this thing is, minus the blood since this is PG-13.
Alien wolf thing.
My idea is that these creatures were restricted to New York, explaining why there are only a few types, I will be looking for more inspiration though, to create new ones.
Within 5 days of 'Judgment Day', it was as if the Gates of Tartarus it self were opened like a floodgate; defiling, filthy, and unnatural creatures appeared all over the globe. From the size of an elephant to a small pigeon, these hellish creatures restructured the very biosphere of Earth itself, to suit there needs, quickly assaulting the already existing ecosystems of animals on Earth. Animals of all types, whether it be the ferocious tiger, or the seemingly insignificant field mouse, became instinct, or endangered. Any surviving species swiftly learned to hide from these new dominant creatures of Earth's food chains. Those that didn't simply ceased to exist.
The remaining human population was even further reduced in number by these walking horrors. Now there aren't even enough people to keep count. Those who were tough enough to survive the Monsters, hunt and scavenge by day, and cower and hide by night. Going out at night is a guaranteed death sentence. In the long run, there seems to be no apparent connection between the monstrosities and the disappearance of almost every single human being. Of course the Human race was the only species capable of even remotely defending themselves against this perverse invasion of the world, but that's not important now, right?Character sheets:
As of now, I don't have plans for a diced based system, or a skill system for that matter, I'll just go on the pretense that people can be trusted with how their characters do things and how well.
Special Skill or training:
Fairly simple, no? Rules:
1: Obviously, try not to God mod, I've done it myself a few times due to inexperience, but that's just me, and it was an accident, but with the Role-Plays I've seen on here I don't think that will be an issue.
2: No overpowered or "perfect" characters, I'm serious about this one, you just aren't going to have guy who worked in accounting all of his life, pick up a gun, and suddenly becomes a bad-ass who never misses with it.
3: Please keep it realistic, guns, melee weapons, and ammunition will not be lying in huge piles in the middle of the street. Also I plan, if this thing gains any momentum, to make a sort of "food bar/hydration bar" system. And for those of you who don't like that, don't worry, your character won't die within five minutes if they don't eat a granola bar or something. The human body can last up to three weeks before starving to death, and up to three days without water, so I'll try to model off of that. Please not that this is a "plan", not written in stone kind of deal, it may not come to fruition, if I feel it would ruin everyone's fun.
4: At least try to post once every other week, I know we all have more important things in life keeping us busy, such as school, work, and other stupid things, so posting frequency is not too big of a deal, just try to post. It's the thought that counts.
5: Since I am on hold, I've been restricted to the Non-Adult sandbox, so while this thread might better suit a different Role-Play section, there is nothing I can do about it. Also, I can not PM so this thread will most likely be the OOC, unless stated otherwise.
6: PLEASE, feel free to give any tips, pointers, or advice, I'm somewhat a 'noob' at creating a Role-Play so any help is welcome. I take criticism well (I think I do anyway), and therefore will take what you say and probably apply it to improve upon this Role-Play and myself.
That sums up all of my thread, so if you're interested, stop on by and poke your head in to ask any specific questions not answered already.
