Something that is gilded, by definition, is something made to appear appealing or shiny on the outside while without value on the inside
The year is 2015 and nothing has changed in America, let alone the rest of the world. The same old economic troubles, the same old wars, and the same old fear and insecurity. This possibly marking a new dark age for humanity.
You're like any other person in america, leading your own life, going about your business just trying to survive. You might be well off, you might be a hobo on the streets. Where ever your life has led you up to this point -this great realization, one that could drive any man or woman mad in an instant- is going to change your life forever. Perhaps you were driving to work and got into an deadly accident. You may have lost your entire family and stand sadly on the edge of a tall building. What ever it was, that realization is...you didn't die.
This RP is an idea iv had for a long time, and hope some people would be interested.
Your characters would be cyborgs that have essentially been deep undercover as sleeper agents for a secret organization that isn't attached to any governing body, or country of any kind. You are sentient AI's that have been implanted with fake memories, and placed in new lives in America (hopefully centered around the northeastern part, from New York to Maine but if for some reason you want to else where, id be willing to negotiate).You wouldn't know that your life was fake(just that your not fully human), but its up to you if you want your character to figure it out or not. Through some sort of traumatic event, you realize you aren't human. Like my small opening bit, maybe you got into a car accident, and open your eyes to see highly sophisticated technology through the torn flesh and dripping blood on your arm.
I was hoping that the opening posts would be the incident, and what your characters does with this discovery and anything else you want. Then a kind of open take from there, while at some point i would start involving the organization coming after the rogue sleeper agents, or trying to detain them and have the story take off from there, depending on your decisions/reactions to everything in character.
Happy with any amount of people joining, but preferably no more than 6 or 7. Also, any questions please ask, and any ideas that you would like to add please speak up!
