The Motherland CallsOOC thread
The world has come under attack. They came out of nowhere and it happened fast. Before the governments could give out warnings or send out troops, the casualty rate had soared to millions worldwide. Countries slid into anarchy in mere hours and people who fell behind just disappeared.
Nobody know what they are, where they came from or how to fight them. Some say they are vulnerable to simple things as knifes and guns, others say nothing works against them.
After the initial onslaught, all over the world clusters of survivors begin to appear, trying to fight back and find a way to make earth their home again.
Our group starts off in the Russian capital, Moscow, during and right after the initial attack. One of the Kremlin honour guards, played by me, is the last of the guards and has control of a radio. As she gathers more and more survivors, she realises that the world has changed and that the old rules and laws no longer apply.
As the group scrambles for safety, one night they hear a continuous broadcast on the old radio.
"We have weapons. We have food and shelter. Together, we can fight back and claim back our home. Rodina-Mat' zovyot! The Motherland Calls."
Cryptic for most, my character knows where they have to go and sets off with the group to meet the survivors.
Wow that sounds pretty great but what is it?
It is a semi post apocalyptic survival game. Initially everything will work as it did. Water continues to be pumped through the pipes, electricity will be on, etc, etc. Later on, more and more will shut down, leaving what's left of mankind struggling to survive.Aww. So no smut then?
This is Elliquiy. Smut and sex is part of the game. Just keep it semi realistic. I will allow BDSM and stuff like that but again, realistic. The chances of you surviving, bound up, naked and led on a leash are slim to none. A man and a woman (or two men or two women) frustrated about the situation having hot steamy sex is completely fine. Dominant and submissive characters are fine but please, this is above all survival.What am I looking for?
I'd like realistic and normal everyday characters. You can have a skill or two but nothing superman. Ideally I'd get around five to eight dedicated players. I will only allow males to play males and females to play females. There are a few exceptions on this rule. Why Russia and why Moscow?
Simple. I think Russia is an interesting setting compared to Europe or the US. Firstly because it's going to be very cold (the aliens attacked in winter). Secondly because the infrastructure isn't as good as in the afore mentioned regions, therefore making survival perhaps a bigger challenge. The cars though, are more robust
. Moscow is the most international city in Russia and thus the most realistic place for international characters. What are those damned aliens?
The aliens are creatures that need a human body as a host. Once they taken over the host, they drain the power if it's male and able to change into whatever form they wish. If it's female, the breed the life out of them in special places to reproduce.
They are not hyper intellectual or strong and can easily be killed by weapons. Their strength lies in numbers and they can blend in large groups because they can have a human appearance. I'm guessing their normal form is large, perhaps tentacled monstrosities. They have the ability to lure prey with pheromones etc.
I do like to stress out that the game is about survival. You won't
get caught, unless you specifically want to but we'd have some serious plotting to do when that happens.So, what else?
Nothing much really. Except for the fact that although it's mostly a free game, I will at times move the game forwards. This is to prevent dragging scenes out for too long.
If you are interested but unsure what to play, let me know and maybe I can help. Character Sheet
