Update: There are some interesting options in the Thames for aquatic mutants...

Also, if you guys want I can make a discord for the RP. It would give you all a place to chat if you wanted, and I'd be able to post updates there as well as here.

I'd not be likely to join one, fwiw. I prefer doing things through the forums all things being equal

That's fine. Nobody needs to be shy about chatting here either, I don't mind off topic discussion.

If there isn't a mutant bear named Paddington as a boss enemy I'm gonna murder a watermelon with a shoe.

Hmmm, I haven't read about bears in the wild, but maybe they have some in the zoo that may have broken free. Those bears could have had a mutated offspring, possibly.

On an unrelated matter to the wildlife, don't forget that your characters don't need to be from London. You could be from anywhere, just having been in London for whatever reason during the evacuation.

You're right about aquatic mutants. If I was a fish living in the Thames, I wouldn't need radiation to grow legs so I could get out of that dump. :)

Out of work now. I'm going to add a bit on factions and mutants.

EDIT: Plenty of small mammals in England. Looks like Lurkers and Demons are also possible threats. Who would have known that the four major mutants in Moscow could be so widespread across the world? That said there are no wild wolves or bears, but as was said before foxes are an option, as well as a few species of deer and European Bison. Should pan out interestingly.

EDIT: Fun fact, deer can be omnivores. Prepare to see herds of mutated Muntjacs roaming the surface looking for tasty snacks.

UPDATE: Three new mutants completed, more to come. England has some good stuff to work with. Humaninals are unlikely to appear due to high levels of radiation, most likely something more drastic such as the librarians or blind ones will show up in certain places.

Sorry for the lack of updates, work has been busy as well as the home life. Been working on faction lore in my head while I work though, so I'm going to be putting that down into written (or rather, typed) form soon, hopefully tonight if I'm able. By tomorrow I should be able to post a bit of what I've got so far, and I'll be welcoming any and all suggestions and/or criticism. Thank you all for your patience with me so far, I'm aiming to make something worth the wait for you all. Depending how things go, this could potentially be a very long running RP.

Apologies again for the wait. Unfortunately my health doesn't feel like agreeing with me for extended periods of time, and so I was unable to do much of anything until today. Thank you all for bearing with me, and feel free to take a look at what I've put down so far. As I said before all criticism and suggestions are welcome. I feel personally that the mutants are a bit plain, so I'm particularly looking forward to seeing feedback on them.

So those are the major factions, but independent stations free of their control exist?

And for the Lords, since they sound like they haven't actually made contact with the royal bunker, do they sort of reign 'in waiting for the crown', as it were?

Overall though, I like them and the mutants.

There will be independent stations as well as stations controlled by bandits, or overrun by mutants. Most stations surrounded by the Circle line for example will be neutral, as Westminster is unable to assert any control there.

As for whether or not The Lords have made contact with the queen, I haven't decided yet. It's been twenty-four years, so it's possible they've been able to send messengers across the surface to the blast shelter. At the very least they know that's where the royal family is supposed to be.

I also need to make up names for these new mutants, and local names for the old ones for that matter.

Nah, thats just a reimagining of the Tube map. When I say the Circle line, I'm talking about the line on the map named Circle.


EDIT: Tonight I'll be posting the version of the map which I posted in the IC. Chances are I'll be using MS Paint to draw faction borders and possibly add other details as well. I could do the same with the geographically correct map of the tunnels too.


EDIT: I've posted the regular style map in the OP. Since the other is in a pdf I'll need to wait until I'm home, so I can screenshot it.

A question for you all, since I don't think I've actually asked it yet. Do you guys want this to start as a linear story, or as a sandbox type adventure? I can work with either.

I'd rather Linear, personally, but I can do Sandbox

So that's one vote for linear. Also, I've posted my character, Allistair, to the character tab as an example to those who want to start on their own characters. It is not necessary to match the length of the personality or backstory I've made for him, and you're free to sort your equipment section how you wish, pictures not required.

I'm debating adding a Specialization section to the CS. Let me know if you guys would like that.


EDIT: Yes, Allistair is Max Rockatansky.


UPDATE: I've added the geographic map to the OP. It wouldn't show in full res, so I added a link for it as well.

I'd rather go linear, at least at the start to get it going. We can always fan out a little later on if we feel like it.
