Post Apocalyptic Underwater Cities (Title Pending)
After the world warmed up, all the ice caps melted, leaving the world to be engulfed by water. The rising sea level killed millions, and we are the survivors. We are the only people that remain. We are humanity's last hope.
I recently came up with a post apocalyptic role play where the world has been submerged by the rising sea levels. To survive, humans built underwater cities and are now living under the ocean. If this interest check shows promise, I will continue on to create a plot line and an OOC. If you are interested, please post below with any ideas you may have! I'll work on getting out the OOC tomorrow, so if you are interested get character ideas together!
See you guys later,

This could be cool. I have some ideas to help flesh out this idea a bit more.
>Multiple factions of the human race at odds with each-other for control.
>Some domesticated riding dolphins or something.
>Some sort of fabled item of ultimate power or fortune lost in the bottom of the sea that people of all factions could be searching for to enable them to seise control over limited recourses or luxaries from the surface that are near impossible to acquire anymore.
>A race of hostile mermen or humans that mutated from something that lurk in the depths of the ocean and can breath underwater and survive high pressure environments and have like hook spear guns or something.
> A fabled and sought after island somewhere on the globe thats got completely in tact and flourishing land and unsoiled natural resources that a group of people could potentially escape the cruel underwater world and live in luxury on. (No one has ever found it though)
>Expeditions that leave with lots of food and supplies that people hijack and take.
>Limited recourses and technologies that make underwater settlements difficult to sustain and drive cities to steal and attack each other just to get the things their people need to survive long term and to keep the city flourishing and from breaking apart under the pressure.
This could be a really cool rp, your welcome to use as many or as few of these ideas if you want.
In theory you could have multiple different types of characters people could get to make CSes for an be. The following are some rough ideas for the type of character roles you could have.
Fishermen: Working class citizens of the underwater cities with extensive underwater combat training that risk their lives venturing out into the sea in special high tech pressure resistant scuba suits and hunt the many giant squids sharks and sea monsters of the deep, usually in groups, and bring back what they kill so the people of their city can eat what they kill.
Explorers: People that go and survey the oceans on behalf of the city and look for ruins of the old society that could be helpful or one of the two fabled treasures i mentioned last post.
City technicians: People who do maintenance for the high tech sunken cities and build defense and respiration systems.
Underwater Pirates: Self-explanatory.
Underwater Mercenaries: Soldiers employed by the cities to attack and defend on behalf of the city.
High Ranking government officials in the cities that mirror the naval chain of command.
Sea Merchants: Sleazy individuals who travel the sea and sell things to cities that they need at extortionate prices. They often buy things that pirates stole from people and sell them back to them to turn a profit. Sea merchants usually have very lavish ships with extremely powerful military might that they use to defend and acquire their property. Merchants are often in the company of pirates and vice versa.
Mermen head hunters: if they are a part of this rp they could be fun to play.
Mermen sea monster riders: Like, imagine avatar for these guys, but underwater and much more hostile.
Again, these are just some ideas, use as few or as many as you like.

Oh snap, you could have multiple themed cities like one could be like all naval and stuff, one could be like futuristic King Arthur style, sunken castle, sea knights, or one could be like an underwater japan.
Like basically if people from different countries founded each city or something... I'm not sure if that idea is going anywhere, though some elite see underwater knights would be cool, but it's a bit out there, as a few of my suggestions may be.
Great ideas! I'll work on implementing those! And let me tell you about my city ideas...

And as for the OOC. I will not be creating it tonight, but I will strive to get it out tomorrow! Sorry for the delays!
You can apply for a role once the OOC comes out. Thanks for showing interest!
