The World Of Phantoms
Yard for the Broken
So the name is actually pretty straight forward as to how the rp will work, at least for it's preliminary stages.
In an unrecorded date of the future, humans had achieved one of their greatest inventions, self-aware AI. Instead of it doing the expected "Destroy all humans" response that media had subjected normal people to believing, this AI saw the flaws of humanity, and began to right them. New systems to produce more food to end world hunger. New laws and enforcement systems to keep crimes down to an all time low. New worldly systems that had achieved what humans couldn't do, a truly peaceful world. So, what could possibly be wrong in a future where machines have fixed everything? Well, nothing for the humans, but this isn't a story about the humans in this world. No, this is a story about the machines that face their greatest fear, being broken. Now, being broken doesn't mean flat out destroyed or damaged beyond repair only, but it could also mean just being slightly defective for the purpose said machine was created for. So, what do humans do with these defective pieces of intelligent equipment? Ship them off to the "Yard". Basically, it's a slightly well maintained junkyard for the defective machines. It's not exactly clean there, but compared to an actually junkyard, it's like a slums near a major city or something. Deemed as "Yard for the Broken," defective machines are sent here to live their days out until they finally break down or run out of energy (which is impossible for certain models, like solar energy based ones.)
Now, the story will focus on a small group of these machines that were sent to the island for various purposes. It's basically a slice of life/sci-fi style of rp that I wanted to give a try. Make something interesting where our imaginations could run wild, but isn't centered around fighting or something like that, at least not outright. Of course there will be certain events to spice up the rp at times, but for the most part it's a character driven rp about machines that are self-aware, waiting to die isolated from any major society other than the self-established colony on the island.
