World Building [Closed]
World Building [Open]
Hello everyone, and welcome to my first roleplay on E. This roleplay will be alternate universe and Sci-Fi themed. It may contain adult themes ranging from light sexual roleplay to extreme
subjects. Essentially, if it's within the rules of E, it could happen in this roleplay, it's a gritty world where anything could happen
. As far as sexual themes that will definitely be included go though, in joining this roleplay, you should at least be ok with roleplaying sexual slavery and forced sex/rape
. If those things make you feel iffy, this might not be the roleplay for you for you.
Requiem for Mankind
Chapter 1: Gods of the Arena
Scienticsts have long theorized that a large solar flare could cause untold destruction within the electric infrastructure of the earth. A large solar sflare could knock out several satellites and burn out electronics even on the surface of the planet. This kind of a 'killshot' is predicted to be inevitable
at some point in the future...
So while it did not come as a surprise, there was nothing we could do when it finally happened. The magnitude of the flare was beyond anything we had anticipated too. It knocked out every last satellite. It knocked out every bit of electric infrastructure on the planet. Internet, television, radio, phones, even the national power grids, all gone. It fried all the batteries, knocking out transportation too. It was like an instant return to the iron age. Perhaps we should have realized it wasn't natural, but we didn't know better, not then.
What followed was a world wide collapse of economy, societal infrastructure, and government. It was pure anarchy, though many government forces kept attempting to keep order, it was difficult due to the lack of communication. It didn't last for long though... The next disaster was around the corner, with reports of large meteorite strikes trickling in. By the time they managed to get a rudimentary radio network back up, it was already clear: Those were no meteorites. This was orbital bombardment, they were targeting military installations, government buildings and police forces. The last struggle to uphold any kind of societal order was buried. Of course, there were still pockets of military units, but since there was no more central authority, they weren't really looking out for anyone but themselves.
I was with a group of scavengers in Paris, as a matter of fact I was their leader, when the invaders landed. They came down with mechs, hover tanks, they were suited up in armor that our weapons could hardly penetrate. It wasn't war, they had picked us apart before we even knew what hit us. My group got pinned down in an abandoned prison facility. I'd like to say we managed to hold them back for a while, but they cut right through us. That was the first I knew they weren't there to just exterminate us. They were taking us away. For what, I didn't know. We were all loaded up in their shuttles and transported off our home world, well, those of our group that survived anyway. I don't know how many people they took altogether, I don't know how many were killed, but I know that human society as we knew it was done for.
As I'm writing this, I'm a slave. I fight for a living... Like the gladiators of old. You'd think that an alien civilization so much further advanced was civilized, but my days are filled with entertaining them for their brutal desires... That's fine, I guess. I could do with the practice. They won't know what hit them. That I swear.
-Nadezhda Dragunov, Spetsnaz.
Mankind is done for. You play as a human slave (The type of slave is up to you.) Owned by a rich alien called Neetru. The societal structure of this alien world is similar to that of ancient Rome. You can also play as an alien slave, if that is what you'd like to do. In that case though, you might have to make up your own alien race (or use an existing one) write a detailed description, which you need to send to me. The idea is to arrange a slave revolt of some kind, though this is a long term target. If you wish to play a non slave character, an alien human sympathizer might be the way to go for you.
Nadhezda Dragunova is the leader of the conspirators. She is also the champion of the arena, played by yours truly. Just because she is the champion doesn't mean she is necessarily the best fighter, it means she defeated the last champion and has not been defeated herself, this gives her a position of respect with the fighting slaves of Neetru.
Human level of technology is modern day technology. Alien technology is advanced enough for energy weapons and inter-stellar travel.
You can play an 'enemy' character, but I suggest this only as a secondary characters, as the opposing forces don't necessarily get any roleplay later on in the main thread. Maximum number of characters per player is 2
I'm not putting a cap on number of players, as it is my experience, that a lot of players drop off withing the first couple of pages of roleplay anyway. I'd rather start it off as a crowded roleplay, than end up with a 1-on-1 roleplay.
If this got you interested, I'm going deeper in the details on rules, Character Sheets, and the like in the next post.
