Serious; While the RP is not meant to be comedic and is meant to be serious it is also meant to be enjoyed so if the expected tone changes… meh.
The Apocalypse did not come with zombies or aliens. In 2053, the Earth itself began to fight back. She released a fog that quickly killed off the majority of the human race and mutated almost everyone else. Most of the mutations turned people into Fiends… monsters who want to feed, breed, and destroy. Others went through minor mutations, some beneficial others not.
At the time of day between light and day the Fiends, Fog, and Magic are most active. It is a feared time when all take refuge and pray. Half Light is a dangerous time. Less so for those who can wield magic but still most sane individuals avoid being out during the Half Light hours.
A corporation that had risen through the ranks before The Chaos stepped forward to be the “saviors” of man in a desperate time. They call themselves the SST Co. or the Spider Silk Trade Corporation.
Their name explains what brought them to the top. They sold technologies based on the strength of silk spun with spider silk and eventually stepped forward into other technologies and became the largest weapons manufactures on the planet.
The worlds waters spilled onto the land swallowing much of the clean water and much of the clean water that was not swallowed was poisoned by the fog. Fresh water and food are things that the SST readily provide for the people and as such they are the tyrannical governing body, especially in the Southern and Western portions of the United States.
Elsewhere the Inquisition has risen and reclaimed the people for themselves. They are on a mission, as usual, to destroy the magic wielders and monsters of the world.
Luckily for us, the Inquisitions campaign has not quite reached Game Creek which sits near Four Corners. But that does not mean magic is practiced in the open. We are still seeing lynchings and the seemingly causeless murders of so called “witches”.
It is said that The Witches have made pacts with the Earth’s minions and the Earth is controlled by Lucifer. Witches would have given their souls for their magic… but is this true? We do not know, none of the so called Witches can remember why it is they have the abilities they have.
*Regardless, magic is hidden and scarcely utilized for fear of death.
*An additional note would be that there is very little, if any, electricity anywhere. Game Creek is a special place.
Make a character and I will review your character and ask for revisions if I feel it is necessary. Do not worry, I will give you reasons and work with you if I feel something is not setting appropriate. :)
Please be as descriptive as possible in your creation. Tell us how your character gained everything they have. Tell us why they are the way they are.
A. Please do not write in first person. “I go to the store.” Thank you. ^.^
B. Do not control over player’s characters. NPCs are fine but leave other PCs alone. Do not so much as say you touch the PC without the players consent. This helps us avoid conflict. Please ask permission the chatbox located on the right hand side of the page.
I will not control PCs unless there is something big happening and you will be spoken with about your character’s actions before I do so. The only time I will control your PC without permission will be if you have been poked, PM’d, etc and are not responding to the RP and it is holding us back. If this is the case your PC will be controlled as minimally as possible and in a way I feel holds true to your PC based on past actions.
C. No Meta Gaming, Power Playing , God Moding, etc.
D. Read other players PCs before publishing your character. Try and make your character unique from the others.
E. I reserve the right to add more rules. :P
F. Have a lot of FUN! That is what this is all about anyways! GO! GO! GO!
*Your cards are more guidelines than a solid rule. They are meant to allow you to develop your character into what you want them to be.
If you feel your character is currently too weak than that is alright. What we can do is offer suggestions on how to get the character where you want them OR allow you to edit your character subtly and get them to where you want them.
There is plenty of time and opportunity to just have fun with all of this.
Remember to play on your weaknesses as much as you play on your strengths and your character will flourish and develop in directions you might not expect to be taken.
If anyone feels someone is not playing their weaknesses or strengths, etc correctly that is fine. They are guidelines. You are free to hang off your cards and stretch in any direction you want so long as you do not hold too tightly to another card set.
So far I am in love with all the characters in play. You are all doing a fantastic job entertaining one another and I do not want the game to hinge on rules exclusively, more on our imaginations.
