The Time? Who knows... Place? Same problem... you awake alone in the rain, stepping from a pod that feels both familiar, and so very alien to you. It is embedded in the ground, and as you look up to see where it could have come from, where you could have come from, you see a sky covered in glass, a dome covering the world around you so high in the sky that you can't imagine touching it. And around you, buildings that tower into the sky. And yet you are alone, with nothing but the sound of rain, and the flickering neon lights that reflect off the black asphalt beneath you. There isn't a soul in sight. So why do you feel so, in danger?
Every nerve of your body tells you that you shouldn't be here, that you need to be careful, that you don't belong... what does it mean? The only feeling that comes to your mind, is 'Enemy Territory'. But who is your enemy? Who is your faction? Who are you?
Your only hint, a number on the pod you stepped out of. And something tells you that it's not the only one, a gut feeling perhaps, that you aren't as alone as you feel. You miss something, someone... you just need to find them, perhaps more like you, and you can find out where you are, who you are, and what is going on in this unfamiliar place.
This is a RP I've tried to run in the past, but due to time issues, it never really got going anywhere. So that being said I'm going to be keeping some restrictions on this version of the RP, and try and make it so everyone that is interested knows exactly what to expect from it, at least in general.
You play some form of unknown soldier. They have extreme amnesia. They know basic things. They know what a gun is, what an enemy is, what a door, a window, a car, all these things are. But they don't know who they are, who their enemies are, or why they are in this place they have no knowledge of. Even with their amnesia, things feel familiar to them, but this place they are in, this massive city, feels so unwelcoming, and so alien to them in its nature. There is no doubt even despite their memory issues, that they have never been here before, and that it is a dangerous place.
Nothing should be assumed in this RP. You do not know your own character's history, you don't know where they came from, who they are, if they had a family. You don't know if they are soldiers from another city, mutants from the wastelands, or genetic experiments who have escaped to the surface from an underground facility.
All of this and more will be explained in time, through the RP itself.
Here is what you need to know about your character:
You will decide their 'class', their weapon, their personality, their name, and their appearance.
They are very advanced, wearing high-tech armor, wielding advanced weaponry, and they are unnaturally powerful. In what ways they are powerful, is entirely up to you within the limits of the RP. As in, are they physically strong? Fast? Incredibly aware of their surroundings? That being said, strength goes up to being able to single handedly flip a car over for example.
This brings us to the RPG elements of the RP.
As the title says, this will be a 'light' RPG. This means you don't have hp points or stat points. You don't have an inventory or anything like that. For the most part, it just comes down to you will be picking a core idea for the 'class' of your character. Imagine, Sniper, Assassin, Brawler, Tank, Duelist... In that order, they would likely use a Sniper Rifle, SMGs, Power-Gauntlets, Shield (Physical and Energy), Sword. But, you can also decide the weapon they will be using. And I'm not going to give you a list of classes, I just want you to decide a 'class name' that describes your idea for your character.
Throughout the RP your character will unlock abilities they can use whenever you wish, unless there are restrictions for the specific ability. For example, perhaps one character gets access to night vision, while another has boosters on their legs that give them a burst of movement allowing them to leap incredible distances. Night vision would not have a restriction on use, but the boosters would be something I simple expect you to understand, should not just be used over and over and over again. I will not restrict the usage of abilities as a 'rule', but rather, I expect you to write the usage of abilities 'realistically', so to speak. But you won't be gaining 'Fireball which you can cast once every turn' or anything like that.
You can also design the general idea of your character's 'class' and I will create the abilities from that, however they will be starting out with next to nothing but the weapon at their side.
This is in the advanced section, this means I expect grammatical competence, a good grasp of the English Language, and the capability of regularly posting without making incredibly small posts.
I'm not big on post length requirements, especially in a RP where you don't know what your character is capable of until you learn IC, so you are limited to essentially responding to what is happening around your character. So if you're one of those people who goes "Ugh, this was supposed to be advanced but people are only posting 2-3 paragraphs, this should be in Casual." then pardon my French but fuck off and go find another RP.
This is in Advanced because I expect everyone to be on an advanced level of writing skill. And despite what some people will tell you, that doesn't mean you have to be capable of pulling an essay out of your ass every time you go to post.
People tend to do these things a lot around here I find, so just putting this out there right away so we can try and avoid this.
If you join the RP, and then say it's "Not what you thought it would be" as far as your control over your character's backstory, abilities, things like that... I have made it abundantly clear that you will not know these things, and will learn them as time goes on. Please read, and understand everything there is here before you decide you are interested.
I expect people to post regularly, and not have to be constantly poked to post. If just 1 post into the RP, we're poking you asking if you're still with us, and you say "Yeah just been super busy with work". Maybe you shouldn't have signed up for a RP... I'm not saying you have to post multiple times a day, but too many RPs die because a week goes by and people are still waiting to clear the first round of posts. Be active please.
We will be going for a group of 3-4 players, no more.
Feel free to post any questions you have here.[/center]
