I N T R O D U C T O R Y

Hello, new faces, and those I've seen before. I may be under a new name, but I am the same mind that built the world of Dust from the ground up. Moving past experiences, trials, and mistakes, I'd like to see this live again. Dust was honestly one of my favorite worlds, and is definitely at the top of the list, above all that I have created in my time. Unfortunately, it was launched during an unsteady period of my life. Now that things are calm, and cemented into place, it's time to unfold this book once more.

The theme of Dust is a mixture of dystopian life, especially for our characters, and post apocalyptic survival. It's set in a custom world, on a desert island made of sand, rock, and prejudice. Our characters, The Immortals, are judged by society, harshly, for being different. For being unique, for having powers that let them rise up above the normal man. This is a metahuman roleplay, if superpowers aren't your thing, then this probably isn't for you. I will allow non-metahuman side characters, but the story revolves around 'The Immortals', our characters. Additionally, along with superpowers, there will be a metamorphosis, of sorts. Call it what you will, a "were-form", the avatar state, ascension. It's a state beyond that of human, of co-existance between The Immortal, and their spark. You can read more on it below. The Hollows are the monsters of this world, alongside your average host of apocalyptic creatures. More on that below.

T H E P R E M I S E


So, what does on do in the world of Dust? Whatever you want. Do note, that I have plans for my character to start recruiting the feared, and oppressed Immortals at Isolone (A location on the world map). You can start a rival, Immortal based faction, or even a cult or purist humans who see you as a god. Have a mob family running the island's primary drug trade, or slave trading, and so forth. Be a wanderer, an arm-for-hire, a settler, all with their own stories to tell.

The last time I did this, there were several separate plots, many of which intertwined with one-another. If you have an idea, but don't want to feel so, isolated in your driving story line, we can incorporate it into world events. Speaking of which, there will be plenty of events through a job-bulletin, or quest-system, for characters to explore and partake in. I will collaborate with you on these, and provide information (Through PM) as necessary. It should be noted that these events will directly shape the world, for better or for worse. That's right, you can shape the world into somewhere safe, secure, and pleasant to live in, or a war-torn battlefield of despair and fear.

H I S T O R Y


This is the information I have from the original launch of this roleplay, and I probably won't change any of it, I may rewrite it but the essential points of the pieces will remain the same. However, I do plan to update some of the other information, and maybe revamp a few things. We will begin in Year 2381: 346 Years After The Fall. And as always, I provide updates anytime I change or add something, usually on an "updates" section of the OOC, and by making a recent post about it.

Holy shit, we're bringing it back!

Can I bring my old character?

Also, at what point is this going to be starting from? (without spoiling it for the newbies)

"I even describe breasts..." I lol'd.

No, but this seems seriously interesting, if not simply for the superhero-esque, sandbox appeal. I may find something that incites question or concern when reading through the lore, but of what I've gleaned so far, I would definitely apply.

Open world? Original Characters and setting? Large Group?

I've been trying to look for a first ever advanced RP to join, and I think this could be the one. My one weakness is actually planning development and arcs. I've had plenty of development and arcs with my characters in Casual RP but I never, ever actually planned ANY of that, and it was a gradual, organic thing rather than every single post doing something to further both their arc and their development.

I have seen this RP already, didn't last very long but I'm interested if you're trying to reboot it.
