I have no choice but to pretend that I’m a warrior who knows no fear.
The day the skies were torn apart, we knew that our old lives were a thing of the past. We were no match for the horrors that came from beyond, and millions died every day. We faced the end of our existence, and lost all hope.
As a last resort, our government agreed on the experimental Tennō project. It was supposed to create heroes and save mankind through the most advanced military technology available, a suit of neurally-controlled power armor.
It was a tragic failure. War heroes, engineers, the best men the country had to offer, they all died as the armors’ neural network destroyed their brain. The remaining armies and cities soon capitulated until only Tokyo was left.
In desperation, the project began experimenting on the refugees swarming the city, and finally found a way. Teenagers under the age of 16 were able to meld with the suit’s systems without suffering from excessive neurological damage. They were going to be the heroes everyone was waiting for. The last hope of mankind.
What they were soon to learn was that the life of a hero is not an easy one.
Rise from the Ashes is a character-driven Sci-fi / horror story for 3-5 players. It’s going to be extremely dark: expect great amount of suffering, physical and emotional. It’s likely you will die, or completely lose your mind.
I’m looking for troubled individuals with interesting personalities above all else.
Remember to describe both your character’s public persona and their real self. The perfect hero that everyone loves and admires, and the flawed individual on the verge of despair.
