The location...Silvertail City
"SilverTail City used to be a sleepy little town, The Furs there made their livings for generations as loggers, miners, farmers, and four leg ranchers. The closing of the silver mine and the building of the new Lionsgate University. The influx of college student brought rapid growth in some areas and the immediate decay of others. In the span of just a couple of years the old main street and industrial area is almost abandoned, while a new more modern façade is slowly being seen along the east end of town as movie theaters, restaurants, and coffee shops moving in to cater to the younger crowd some of the old businesses still hold on to the old west side of town. Amongst them: The Iron Horse Stable and Grill, a restaurant and inn situated in what used to be the towns railroad depot ran by Cal Swift(Clydesdale Horse, former local track star) and The Burrow, a local pub whose clients are mostly ex-miners, lumberjacks, and bikers all of who drink and play under the watchful eye of Tom Knox(Badger, Ex-miner). A new player has entered into the area though. A bat by the name of Nos Corventius. In the months since his arrival he has bought up nearly the entire west end of town with few exceptions, promising of revitalizing the west side. His first step in doing so was to open up a new fetish/industrial club, called the Subterane, in a abandoned underground speakeasy left over from the probation days. The club success and his continued plans to build do not sit well with many of towns folk but the officials cut Mr. Corventius a little bit of slack because of his continued impact of the towns economy. Only time will tell how thing will turn out for Silvertail City and its residents, new and old.……"
About the world: (Disclaimer: this is entirely fictional and any use of real life groups, celebrities, and events are mock ups of the real thing, they are obscured to the point where they can be considered comical, and should not be taken seriously at all)
The world is a few years into the future from our modern day Earth. The premise of this semi-sci-fi is the presence of anthropomorphic creatures. In 2016, the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals group launched a set of experiments to determine possible ways to reduce the amount of mistreatment towards animals. They discovered in several surveys and studies that if animals appeared and acted more human, then people would be less likely to mistreat them. So, PftEToA put a group of mad scientists and some hollywood directors to work on turning everyday animals into near human animals; anthropomorphic species were born. In 2018 however, their research was stopped by the government, mainly the president of the United States, on the grounds that such experimentations were crimes against nature, and that more money needed to put into research for alternative fuels and space travel.
There was one problem with this: there was already a considerable population of anthropomorphic species, and they were sentient. With no legal rights, and still considered animals by law, they were flushed into lives of servitude and continued experimentation. In 2022, a new Presidential election was held, and in the following January, the wild card president passed a bill that allowed all anthro's to develop as a species. This bill however merely gave them the right to breed. As the anthropomorphic races developed, so did the world's food supply fall. Many anthropomorphics are very similar in mentality to their animal counterparts, and so, lion, tiger, shark, and other carnivorous predator anthro species began attacking and killing off others for food. New laws were issued in order to keep this new form of life in check. All anthropomorphics were to be considered slaves in 2025. Essentially, they had lost all rights and were labelled as a threat to the human race. Capturing and killing them was encouraged world-wide.
By 2030, the anthropomorphic population was considered in check, and the world found a new way to balance them into the global environment. Anthro's assumed the roles of their animal counterparts in many ways. A new circle of life was established; cow, sheep, pig, and other farm animal anthro's were kept in farms, and produced food which would in turn feed the starving population of the world, and furthermore be used as food towards predator species as well. Their anatomy was mostly human, but it was found that their genetic and biological factors made their muscular composition perfectly similar with their animal counterpart. In 2035, the industry was full blown, and the human race was back in control once again. There was corruption in it however; being part human, these anthro's could breed with humans, and were sexually similar to humans. They were not only being used as food, but as sex slaves, which probably would have been the better fate anyhow.
New laws that more carefully gave anthro's rights came in to play; because for some reason, sex is less acceptable than violence and gore and death. It wasn't so much that, it was the underage factor. Slave anthro's with no rights were continuously targets of sexually assault that is considered disgraceful in all cases. All anthro's were given the right to live and act as they pleased up until the age of 18, slave or not. Once 18, they were considered slaves again, and had to serve however their master or mistress required. They were allowed to participate in human society if free, but were still required to remain under constant check by authorities. Anthro's born free were given all the educational rights as humans.
The modern society is now stable. The personality of anthro's varies between races and slave status. Most prey species that are slaves meant for food have a common mentality that they have no control over their life, and will not defy execution; at the same time however, they do fear it constantly, and will try everything they can to get out of it without attacking their would be executioner. Most cat, dog, and other "house-pet" anthro slaves are rarely under the threat of execution, and live comfortably doing whatever is requested of them. Predator anthro slaves have the mentality of fighting their way out of trouble if they sense it; they can be meant for food, but will not go down so easily. Most of the time, these anthro's are used for entertainment, like gladiators were once in Ancient Rome. Free anthro's are often neither hostile nor submissive, and act as regular human do. Predator anthro's that are born free are the most dangerous, and often get executed for murder and violent aggression. Other born free anthro's tend to act normally as humans do.
This group rp is now going to be gm'd by three people, NosCorventius, who wrote some of the above information, Junten, and myself, Panthean.
The basic functioning and layout of the rp is simple. It will span across several threads, including, but not limited to:An OOC Thread,
in which players can discuss out of character issues and ideas with one another that are related to the game. The main function of the OOC thread, other than acting as a place where players can discuss general out of character things, is to be a thread where players can organize character pairings, and decide beforehand which characters they're going to match up with one another.A general group thread,
in which the most generic rp activity will be played out. This thread will still be limited to pairings between characters discussed in the OOC page, but will be more open to group activity, as well as general in character discussion.
Pairing specific threads, where different pairings of characters, organized in the OOC page will be allowed to rp without the interruption of other players.
Localized group threads, each of which will be created to house a specific kind of kink, as welll as act as an alternate location for in character activity.Bounty Hunter's Association
There are general rules about certain things used in the rp.
First of all, we assume to be in a, for the most part, modern setting. Some technology may be advanced slightly beyond that of the modern world, but not too far advanced.
This is not a roleplay for alien species, or poke/digimorphs of any kind. It is also not permitted to have a feral anthro species of any kind. By feral, we refer to a species that has the mentality of a non-sentient animal. While a character may be consider closer to being feral, or primal, they still cannot be feral.
Dragons/Unicorns and other fantasy animals... as well as fantasy elements are allowed... but don't overdo it.
NO CHARACTERS ARE ALLOWED UNDER THE AGE OF 18.
