The Clearing




Patient zero had been identified early on and was quickly contained. Doctors said it was a new genetic mutation of some sort, and the people were easily appeased by that. There was no reason to panic over it. The growing tumor on the woman's temple, while unsettlingly big, didn't seem to affect her much. According to her family, she was just as intelligent and charismatic as before the tumor. Eventually, she was released, and life seemed to carry on as usual. However, more mutations started cropping up as time went on: people's skin changing color, body parts growing out of nowhere, and complete personality shifts. Yet life carried on. None of it seemed especially dangerous. Personality shifts were managed with therapy, and the more physical mutations didn't pose any health problems.

There were still people who wanted to know what caused these 'alterations' to occur. Researchers spent years analyzing the mutated volunteers' DNA, skin, and blood samples, but nothing seemed out of place. If anything was causing this, it was impossible to detect with existing medicine.

Fifteen years later, the Creatures began crawling out of the sea.
And out of forests.
And from deep within the soil.

Repulsive and unsettling, their appearance injected fear into the population. The creature's strength and unnatural abilities didn't help the situation either.

Their first kill was the beginning of the end.

The attacks multiplied, and people raced to prepare themselves for the end times. Individuals abandoned their families to not be slowed down by them, crime rates increased pretty much overnight, and governments slowly began shutting down. However, the mutants were affected the worst of all – the mutations were making them slowly resemble the creatures.


Ten years later, while on a search for supplies, you found yourself in a forest clearing. It's peaceful and silent- the kind of silence that you never got to experience- or perhaps experienced decades ago. You ventured deeper into the clearing and waited. You knew something was coming. You don't know what, but it seemed significant. You heard the leaves rustle, and one by one, more people entered the clearing.

The civilization now:










That's the basic premise of this RP. The main focus will be on the characters and how they deal with survival, although some mystery and horror elements will be thrown in. The characters can be both mutants and non-mutants from any of the groups listed above.

Sounds fun, but I do have questions?

So we're talking humanoids or have these mutants mutated to such a degree that they have altered their bodies aswell?

Is it still based on our world or can we forgo the old names as the event has altered things to such a degree that towns and cities are named differently?

A little more info on the creatures please, I mean can I bludgeon them to death or will they overpower a normal human? You also spoke of unnatural abilities, what are we talking about? Spitting venom? Or hypnotism? I'd like to know a little more before I think up a character.

Also goal? Pure survival or are we trying to eradicate them?
