Static crackled across the radio.
"Mayday! This is Flight 459, we need help! Is anyone there?! Mayday!"
"Captain, the left engine is on fire!"
"Ladies and gentlemen, please try to remain calm -- "
The nose of the plane tipped forward, hurtling toward the sparkling ocean beneath them. Moments later it crashed into the serene waters, the plane filled with screams and last minute prayers. It took only minutes before the Captain and Co-Captain were mobilized and opening the hatch door to quickly evacuate the passengers, pitch black smoke billowing behind them as the engine still roared with a quickly spreading fire. Barely had the last passenger jumped down into the relative safety of the ocean below before the explosion sounded and hurtled gigantic wave after wave at the nearby bodies, casting them away from the life changing imagery.
One by one the survivors washed up onto the nearby shore ...
The premise is simple: a group of survivors, passengers and a couple crew, from a plane crash somewhere over an ocean, have been left stranded on what appears to be a deserted island. They must band together and rely on each other to survive the elements and mysteries of the island until help comes. Of course, that's if help ever does arrive as the survivors soon realize that (among a spreading jungle fever) they appear forgotten about by the world.
:: Players looking to participate are expected to write with at least a modest level of literacy and consistency. While I'm not looking for or encouraging anyone to write a novella for each post, I am looking for those who portray action, emotion and depth while grasping at least the basics of grammar.
:: As this is under multiple interests (and will be welcoming a variety of enjoyments) please remain aware and respectful of the other players' on's and off's. Players are welcome to form pairings prior to the start of the game, though should not feel the necessity to do so.
:: Any images used for characters should remain in the realm of realism. Thus, no anime, drawings, or et cetera.
:: New players will be welcomed after the start of the game but must
contact me via Private Message beforehand.
:: This will very likely be updated.
:: The title will (probably) be changing once I think of something better.
:: On a final note, this will (hopefully) not be along the plot lines of Lost. However, I really cannot guarantee that one way or another as all I know about Lost is that they were stranded on an island and a lot of crazy shit went on (gleaned from the previews and commercials I could never really escape from) that I think stemmed from aliens. (Maybe aliens? Or shark people? A lost native tribe? Pygmies? Two cookies for the right answer.)
