3012 A Hope For Humanity OOC and signups
The year was 3012. Humanity’s technological advancement had hit an all-time high, and scientific explorations have traversed the world over, revealing historic secrets almost every day.
All and all, it seemed to truly be mankind's golden age. War was nearly a relic of the past, as after the end of the war in Iraq there was no other rouge state willing to contend with the United States and its allies.
Years passed, and although there were wars; advances in technology and relations between nations ensured that these wars remained only as contained, isolated events.
By the five-hundredth anniversary of the end of the Iraqi war humanity hit its greatest milestone. for on that day, for the first time in its long history; humanity stood under one banner.
Under the example of what good the United Nations had done for the world, humanity cast aside the age of nations, and embraced the age of unity.
Gone was the US, the UK. Gone was the European Union. Gone were all the former nations.
In their place arose the human collective.
Up till the current day, the collective and humanity lived in peace. But this thousand year harmony wasn't meant to last. Deep within the earth itself, an ancient evil stirred. Strange disappearances began plaguing the various major cities of the world. This situation rose to its peak on December 21, 3011. An explosion shook the eastern seaboard of the former United States; vile creatures came from the rubble and waged war with man. Our story begins on July 4, 3012. Where a single message, beamed across the entire world from a source outside it has left humanity speechless... The message? "You are not alone."

-There is no weekly posting requirement once you join, but please be courteous to the other players. Life happens, we are all busy, and sometimes the creative juices simply aren’t flowing. In any case, if your character is actively involved in an interaction and you will be unable to post for a significant period of time, please find a way to extricate your character from that interaction so that the other players can continue, or give someone else permission to temporarily take control of your character.
-If you have been given permission to control another person’s character temporarily, please make note of it at the top of every post in which you control that other character. If the character has been permanently turned over to you, please make note of it in the OOC thread; you don’t need to note it in every post.

Age:(must be over 18)
evolutionary Evoke/ enhancement: (note, enhancements and evolutionary Evokes are not permanent and can be bought and sold at various hubs. they are optional cybernetic and genetic equipment which bestow heightened physical abilities upon the user. however, overuse of these have a cost. after a set period, enhancements will begin replacing the user's organic parts with cybernetics; while similar overuse of evokes will cause the user to degrade creatures similar to those that are the enemy in the war).
