This is a Rp I ran for a few years on a Furry community. I thought that though it was good there it was a bit too limited and wanted to try it out here. Looking for a group of diverse players with some imagination to help me build something great. Players can chose to play either a descendent: a character that is an outside inhabitant of the world, litterally a desendent of those that lived through the Gene War; or An Experiment: A character that wakes up with no memory (will be provided by me as game play advances) from cyro-suspension inside the facility.

The premise and intro are as Follows:

For many years, a corrupt American Government and those of their allies, had been forcing policies upon other governments and their own people. In the year 2012, several Governments began to join together and fight back. Fueled by anger, religious fevor, or a simple wish to manage their own affairs and not pay tribute to a One World Government, they pooled their resources and built an army of massive scale and advanced training. Calling themselves the Global Resistance Army they attacked the soldiers that occupied their lands. In response the US military unleashed Project BlackBook upon thier enemies unsuspecting populace, Civilians and soldiers alike. No one was spared. Overnight the worlds population was reduced by one third, the earth left scorched and devoid of life. Most of the world media hailed the event as a victory. A Masterstoke that would herald in a new reign of peace and posperity for not just America but for all the remaining global citizens. Questions remained unanswered. How was such a victory possible, without a single atomic weapon being used? What did Operation Blackbook consist of? Why had not a single allied soldier been reported injured or killed in what was clearly a massive military strike? Had The military unleashed a new biological weapon horror upon the world? The Government would not answer. They would only say that BlackBook was a highly classified new advanced multi-weapons system. Six months later, a cable access news station uncovered the truth. It was worse then anyone had ever imagined.

BlackBook wasn't a new type of missle, or evan a deadly biological agent. It was the culmination years of secrect experimentation on humans and their genetic codes. The strike force that had been sent to decimate the GRA, had consisted entirely of clones, genetically altered soldiers, animal-human hybrids, and cyborgs. The resulting shock led to riots and attacks on military installations by the citizens. Some called this World War Three, others The First World Revolution, but to most it was referred to as simply the Gene War. The Gene War spanned centuries. Neither side giving any quarter, continously escalating. A war bent on winning, at any cost. The world sank into ruin, reducing the environments even further to a mere shell of what they once were, creating large deserts and inhospitable terrains across the globe. By the time the war was over andriods, sentient war-machines, mutants, and worse would roam the landscape, bringing the human species, as we know it, to the brink of extinction.

Now in the Year 2512, the war has been over for almost 200 years. The once powerful governments, much like the cities they lorded over, have fallen into ruins. Survivors, scattered across the various continents, are cut off from each other and gathered in groups and tribes It is a world where only the strong and quick witted survive. There are those, however, that still dream of power and of the glories of war. As if in answer to this once more emerging threat, something is stirring. Something, that makes its home among the sleeping hordes of weapons nestled deep within the ruins that dreams battlefields long forgotten.  They wake from the thousands of cryogenic pods in the the mysterious complex both familiar and alien. A place they can only call, home. Those that awaken within the bowels of the neglected facility remember nothing of how they came to be there, or why. Many in fact do not even remeber who they are. Only that they are needed. While outside the nomads and mutants that claim this overshadowed place as thier own shiver, suddenly. A chill spreading amoungst them despite the stifling heat. They know something is coming, but what, is yet to be seen. Only one thing is for sure..... the world will never be the same. Thus, begins the aftermath of the Gene War.........

So now that you've seen whats on my mind anyone interested? Guess so. Heres whos joined us so far!!!!

Very interested with your idea, would you be looking for the ones awakening first? Or would the nomads be played first to 'set the scene' as it were?

I'd like to get a little of both actually. I plan to start this once I have about 3 of each but if I need to supplement that myself I can. The way I Gm is I build worlds, coupling my ideas with those of my players, that inspire or intrigue me, and then push the story along using NPC interactions. It makes for an experience where every game is unique and specifically tailored to the groups personalities.  So while I have a basic "map" I built for this on the other board I am more then willing to make additions or even restructure the whole thing if necessary to our groups needs. Part of the fun on getting in on this early is that you get to help set the stage some, as well. Basically you give me a character and I'll help build a community around him/her. Just be aware that because this is an post apocalyptic world their will be some definite trade offs. In the case of an Experiment those trade offs come in the form of amnesia and your starting point in the base, I.E more power equals higher security so you'll start further away from the surface. While Descendants will usually make a trade in tech or magical skill for appearance, some social quirk and/or a lack of numbers should all out war emerge. So I guess the real question is what do you want to play?

I'd love in on this, as either. I'd especially love to talk/work with you in regards to how the "world of today" functions, and what it's like, but your basic description already sounds very appealing. Hell, there are so many things I want to play here... But I'd prefer one of the awakened things, I think, if only because I like to play strange things so much.

I may be interested in this if there are still openings. Question: For those with no memory, I take you there would be no known likes/dislikes, etc? Are we using a gaming system for this or just playing it by ear?

Tschel23, to answer your questions in order.

1. This is designed as a RP world so anyone can join at any time, Thus there is always room for one more. 

2. Likes/dislikes, much like skills are body based not memory based. Thus they can be added to an awakened ones Cs as well. They are optional, however, for these characters as I understand the fun in playing a blank slate. If you descide to list the optional info it is used mostly for inspiration while building your preprogram and program histories as well as provide some motives for your initial behaviors upon awakening. Once this starts I'll be providing all of the awakened with a initial memory and a story trigger that activates the memory via pm These may also include skills. likes, phobias, dislikes and motives as appropriate.

3. This is all free form, with the amount of initial set up and writing that i put into this already adding a systems rules and regs just seemed overkill.

So where is Everyone at? so far I'm looking at only 2 Character sheets. Come on peoples anyone else we can recruit for this????

Marvin Consider yourself Approved. Move your Cs over to the Character page and then fell free to post. Your Character will wake up on Level K in Section 4. Its a large warehouse like area filled with Cyro-stasis tubes. Many are broken, smashed (some from the inside) or otherwise in operable while in others you can see movement as others struggle to get out. The lighting is dim with many broken lights. The only constant is the red light from the various alarm Klaxons. Everywhere is a thick layer of dust.

A few decisions you need to make before I can approve you. Your character is he a Mage or a Druid or a Freelancer? Here's the differences.

Mages: Under the rule of the Three the Magelords gather in Towers rarely leaving except to make war or recruit new talent into their ranks. Capable of far reaching magic when working in a Circle, a gathering of Mages to do a large work, they are obsessed with power and bending the universe to their will. They believe their power comes from themselves and is a result of their Genetic superiority.

Druids: Loosely confederated under the White Council, Druids are a loose nit group of Shamans and nature focused Mages, often gifted with powers over a single element, or aspect of nature. They often become traveling healers, spiritual leaders, and teachers. They number far fewer then the Mages and believe that their powers are given to them by the spirit of the earth who wishes them to restore her to her former beauty. They oppose the Mages in any way possible, seeing them as abominations and a blight upon the land.

Freelancers: Magic-users who have for whatever reason not drawn the notice of either Magical Order. Freelancers often lead a hard and short life. Those that do survive do so by specializing in agressive battle magics. Many Freelancers are found in the employ of the Despotic rulers of the Badlands, The Aristrocrats. Favored for their destructive power and lack of loyalty to the Magelords, who the Aristocrats see as the only true threat to their reign, they trade their services for Sanctuary. Those that are foolish enough to refuse the protection of such Patrons, however, often find themselves targeted for elimination by all three groups, who believe a free mage is a threat best eliminated.

Which are you most interested in playing? Let me know.
