A World’s End
In a land ravaged by death
You are all that remains of humanity
Fight to live
Fight to survive
There is hope
If you live long enough to find it
In the year 2014, mankind sought a way to become god. What he discovered was death. Billions died in an instant. The world population was reduced to 1%. Civilization wiped out in seconds. There is no food. There is no water. The land is as black as clouds in the sky and sunlight does not shine through the dark haze. In the deepest abyss, mankind waits out his inevitable demise. But there is hope. There is a voice in wind that whispers softly in your ear. Come, it says, I will make your wish come true. Come, it says, I will give you life. Be mine.
Thousands now make the journey across the perilous landscape. Discovering a world they had never seen before. Monsters roam the lands. Mythical beasts fly over the sky. The end of days has past and in three days all of humanity will die out. What will you do?
Welcome to A World’s End RP. My name is Asperser and I will guide you through this maze of thoughts that make up this RP. Humanity has been wiped out and it is your job to find a way to survive. This RP will consist of a five chapters, each detailing a different set of ordeals your character has to go through to survive. In all of these trials you will compete against your fellow RPers for supplies and shelter.
Expect to die. There are only a few that are going to be able to move on to the next chapter with the same character. However, you are free to make a new character for each chapter should you wish to continue. I will now go into details about what kind of powers your character will be able to obtain for this RP.
The only people not killed by death are those with innate gifted abilities. These humans are not aware they have special powers, but as they traverse the wasteland of the world they will begin to awaken their hidden potential. There are six categories:
Those who can influence their surroundings using their mind.
Those who can influence their surroundings using an energy source.
Those capable of superhuman feats using only their body.
Those who can construct devices to accomplish any task.
Those who can shift time, space, and logic.
Those whose powers cannot be explained.
Your character must be of one of the types above. You are not allowed to choose more than one and can only have powers that are in your power category.
Everyone is different. There are no two people who are identical in the skill and flexibility of their power. Should one or more of these gifted individuals fight each other this list will provide a way to determine who will win.
[Rank S] Mythical
You are grasping at the strings of reality and of the secrets of the universe. You are so close to something, but you don't know what it is your are close to. The world seems so far away now. A small cradle in the darkness. Your desires manifest themselves in your surroundings changing the world around you. You can feel that you are not alone. That there are others in the world like you that can do the same thing. This thought haunts you. Because you know. There should only be one.
[Rank A+] Legendary
You have obtained powers far beyond that of mortal men and have become the object of fear and awe, a near demigod on earth. Your powers extending as far as you can see. You no longer need to fight for food or water to sustain yourself, but still you must fight to survive. You must fight to exist. There are millions if not billions of creatures in the world ready to consume you for a taste of your power. You can feel yourself slipping farther and farther away from what made you human from the start of this journey and wonder at the end of it all what will be left of you.
[Rank A] Heroic
You have become the beasts and monsters you feared when you started this journey. You can crush the intangible with your fists and topple buildings on whim. Your powers extend nearly to the horizon. There are a few creatures in world that you still fear to face, but it is now the world that has become afraid of you.
[Rank B] Master
The more you use your powers the more they grow and become a part of you. You can extend your abilities several meters away and now nearly anything seems possible. There is a growing dread at the back of your mind that you are becoming something other than a human, but you dare not think about it now. The world is still changing and you are quickly becoming it's master.
[Rank C] Expert
You are now comfortable with the changes over your body. It feels natural to fly in the air or bend the earth beneath your feet. You can perform feats you only thought possible in your dreams and you are now truly battle ready, able to will forces of nature to your whim. You still have trouble harnessing the more taxing powers at your disposal and your powers don't reach far beyond a few meters from your body, but you feel like a entirely new person. Reborn into the world.
[Rank D] Novice
Your powers are growing, changing. You can feel yourself controlling your abilities much better and you are beginning to see the world in a new light. You can move things with your mind or channel energies you never thought were possible. You are not skilled at your powers, but you can will them to do useful things and even hurt the people around you though you may be hurt in the process.
[Rank E] Base
You have begun to discover something special about you. This can be heightened hearing or sight. Or you may find yourself able to light a candle in the darkness with a snap of your fingers. You can't hurt anyone with these gifts, but you know that you are no longer the same person.
A higher ranked skill will always beat a lower rank skill unless it is that power’s weakness. If that is the case you need to be two ranks higher to beat that power. If two powers hit each other and are at the same rank and are not weaknesses they cancel each other out and nothing happens.
Psychic is weak to Biological
Biological is weak to Supernatural
Supernatural is weak to Reality Bending
Reality Bending is weak to Technology
Technology is weak to Magic
Magic is weak to Psychics
Combat is a big part of this RP. You will be fighting for the survival of your character. If you lose. Your character dies. Any time you encounter someone you have a choice to fight them. Either for their items or for resources. There is only a limited amount of items per chapter so while it may be in your best interest to work together to get these items eventually you might have to make a decision to break the alliance or sacrifice yourself so your friend can live on.
Here are the ground rules. You are allowed five actions for every three days. These actions include dodging, blocking, attacking, running away from people, and gathering supplies from the environment. Anything your character does it takes up one of these five actions. You must remember your character is in a constant state of hunger with little to no sleep on the verge of death. So if you spend all your actions. Your character cannot do anything to protect themselves if someone wants to kill them. If you get hit by an action, a falling tree someone cut down or a punch to the head, five times in a single chapter. You die.
So remember the smallest of actions can have dire consequences. If you are not sure whether what you are doing costs you one of these five actions ask me and I will tell you.
The character sheet is short. Why you may ask? This is because there is a high possibility of your character dying in every chapter. I trust that you will play them to the best of your ability while they remain alive. Send your character sheet in a PM. I'll put it in the character thread and update it myself so we know who is still alive.
Name: What is their name?
Power Category: What is their power category?
Powers: You start off with three Rank E abilities. Really, all I'm looking for is what can your character do. One sentence is okay. A page is okay. As long as we both know what's going on with your character. Nice and simple. You only get three so make them count.
The world is an every changing and inhospitable place. In every chapter your character will encounter phenomena and events beyond their wildest dreams. You will be asked to do the impossible because impossible is the chance of your survival.
