Am I going mad? I have lied to you countless times, telling you that everything is fine and that the world I live in will revert back to the good old days. I lived in this illusion for the past 10 years, hoping...hoping that this was all just a dream. Everyone is denying the truth and even speaking of our situation will have a gun pointed at your head. The old President has been replaced with a new one, who's only goal was to feed his own belly. Good Samaritans have turned into thieves. Human darkness has clouded over the good, and it's painful to watch... But I won't mask the truth away from you anymore, no matter how ugly it is.
The Earth is dying. Centuries of pollution, global-warming, over-population, and over-consumption has left humanity at the brink of annihilation. The once clean oceans, seas, rivers, and lakes are layered with waste. The trees are bare, unable to produce fruit. There is no speck of green or the hint of a fresh breeze. Even now, scientists are desperately working to create some source of food... Animals and even humans have been mutated into aggressive creatures, roaming the land with a hunger of human flesh. Just think of it, your regular household pet viciously attacking you. I have seen body parts strewn about the streets... The howling of a wolf - no, a human wolf after a kill.
Deadly viruses have been spreading around the world, with no medicine nor the equipment to slow the mortality rate. I have seen countless people drop dead from diseases and viruses. There are only a few pills here and there, and everyone keeps it hidden inside their clothes. Smog has blocked out most of the sun rays and slowly the seven continents shifted, triggering massive natural-disasters. Millions perished. I was one of the lucky ones, a government employee who had a bit more connections to the higher-ups than others...The ozone layer that protected us humans from UV rays is now totally depleted, making it dangerous to venture out without protective clothing. The air is so polluted that you wouldn't be able to breathe without a gas mask. You would think countries would help each other out in this situation, but instead of trying to help each other and co-exist, countries have started a full-blown war with each other, desperate for each others scarce and needed resources. The bombings went for a few weeks, until everyone was just too tired to continue killing each other.
It is foolish for man to think that the world will go back like it was in the past. I hope that after I die, someone will beat some sense into the so-called president of the United States. It is best for all of us to move on and make the best of what we have. Stupid isn't it? Don't you think it's god's way of punishing us humans for our sins? I have lost family and friends. I killed for a mere piece of moldy bread or a worn blanket. I even beat some poor child just because she begged for some of my rations...
To think that I, James Marcus Copperstone, would turn out to be such a petty man.
♫ This is a post-apocalyptic RP based on survival and action. It will be rated as PG-14 up to Mature, involving death, gore, and fighting. However, there will be no adult material (sex). Your character can be of any age (Preferably above the age of ten) and race. There will be no high-tech weapons, computers, internet, etc. in this world. However, I don't plan on completely limiting our resources - low-tech items such as a radio would be fine. This RP will start 150 years from the journal entry above.♫
★ First and foremost; Quality > Quantity [Min. of one paragraph; 3 sentences] I should point this out more clearly; I DO NOT CARE ABOUT LENGTH.
★ I ask for dedication(?) I know most people tend to lose interest or RL likes to screw around. I would love for a couple of people to stick with me and this RP!
★ Decent literacy. I'm a fob... English is not my first and best language so I don't expect the same from you.
★ When posting in the IC, please read other people's post before you reply.
★ No god-modding
★ I would rather not have people ask me which specific set of tracks we should go on. This is more of a sandbox type of thing where I give you the medium and you people (including me) play in it.
★ Please socialize and have fun with this!
★ No RL pics.
★ If you have any plot twists or any suggestions you would like to point out, feel free to PM me or discuss it in OOC.
✣ In each area, there is one city that houses thousands or a few hundred. In this RP, you are a person living in the Area 21 (around Maine). The designated city name is ironically called 'Paradise', which is occupied by a few hundred people. Some people can be sorted into gangs or you roam alone or with another person. The general layout of the city can be up to your imagination, but think of demolished building, house, subways, etc. Take in mind that there is a wire fence surrounding the city, which keeps out some of the mutated animals/humans. ✣
☼ Mutants are scary little things. There isn't much to say about these creatures, expect they are similar to zombies with enhanced speed and strength. They're looks mostly depends on what kind of creature they were before. For example, if the mutant was a lion - just add a couple of limbs, some green ooze on it, and razor-sharp teeth.
They attack mainly at night and pick off the wandering or the hopeless of the streets. Any roleplayer can "use" a mutant for their own reasons, but take in mind that there are other characters around.☼
◉ A "government" truck comes by every so week to drop off boxes of necessities such as canned food and blankets.
◉ If you wish to be in a gang(?) of some sort, please do tell in OOC.
◉ Maximum amount of characters you can have is two at the same time. You can always decided to kill off a character and bring up another one.
◉ If you want two characters, have one female and one male.
◉ Not everyone will have pistols, guns, or rifles. Knives, blades, spears, bows, etc. are the norm.
I 'aint picky. You can add things if you'd like. This is the bare minimum.
Never get on Carol's bad side or she'll bite you (if she can). She's quite aggressive and hot-headed, never hesitating to take action whether it's bad or good. She is also very stubborn and tends to overreact when teased.
