It didn't used to take so long to recover. When I was younger I was told a kiss would make it all better. These days, by that logic, I'd need to be a porn star.

Might not have internet tonight. Travelling into an area I don't know well. My wifi hub may not have cell towers to use. Should move by the next day though.

Work is a little nuts. Long days, little time off. Going to be a little slow on replies. Bear with me.

Bio

Well, I USED to have a bio. Site keeps changing and it goes poof each time.

This is the story about two people on the lam. One is a Fugitive (from the Law). The other is on the run from the mafia.

I intend to run the Fugitive from justice. He is male. He will tell you he was framed. He was. Proving that is another matter. He has led a fairly sheltered life.

You will be on the run from the Mafia. The reason is up to you. I am looking to either old world Italian type mafia or Russian Bratva associated reasons. You character ought to be able to not end up in prison if caught by the law.

I am looking for two basically good people.

Plot
I haven’t fully worked this part through. How they will meet is up for discussion. I was thinking about a slow boat to somewhere not in the US - maybe Africa or the South Pacific.
bump
In a bleak future society has changed its views on education. And it is our children who suffer for it. A whole new system of (JDC) juvenile detention centers has been created. The children who are sent to these facilities come from specific sources. CRIMINAL juveniles are NOT among them. At least, that isn’t what landed them there.

Expulsion
Children who get into fights, are truant constant, highly disruptive, habitual offenders.

Abandoned, Severely Abused, or Neglected Children
Lack of parental authority. This includes children who are orphans. This becomes a substitute for foster homes.

Criminal Parents
Pretty self explanatory. Your parents are in jail. But the children are the ones convicted of crimes. But it may include include children of parents held in jail merely accused of crimes and unable to get out on bond.

The schools are laid out like prisons, though the rooms are nicer. Children are tagged with subdermal RFID biochips. These are short ranged, enough to let the Staff know if a child isn’t where they are supposed to be, like not in class. Or it will tell them if they are in another student’s room. Or if they aren’t at the JDC.

Education
Classes are compulsory. Your Counsellor will assign your classes. Good behavior means better odds of a getting the classes you want. The truth is the Counsellors often have instructions about what you will learn. All Staff Members are armed with biometrically secured tasers.

Physical Education is also compulsory and harsh. The coaches will run you ragged. They are like drill instructors.

Regular classes like English are large. There is usually a teacher and at least one assistant. The assistants help keep order. You will be required to learn the 3 R’s.

Corporal punishment has returned to these schools. This means paddlings. (Some of the teachers refuse to use these methods; some employ it with something approaching sadism. Heaven help the student who ends up at odds with a teacher.)

Now as bad as this all sounds, rarely do the tasers get used. Example get made as needed. The teachers actually appreciate kids who show up and start trouble. It give them a chance to impress upon the rest of the kids how things are done.

If a kid actually does harm an instructor, they get transferred to a criminal JDC (and effectively out of the RP). The only other way out is a medical transfer (physical or mental).

Characters
Please no seniors. I want characters that don’t expect to get out of the JDC soon. This is a combined K-12. I might entertain the idea if you have siblings as well.

Plot
One possible plot I have in mind is planning and executing an escape. If we go that route, the RP will become one of evading the law.

Disclaimer. This is a roleplay, pure fiction. It has absolutely no basis in religion. So please no trolling.

You are dead. Yup, that’s right. D-E-A-D … dead. Deceased, a goner, pushing up daisies. Well, at least your body is. But the spirit lives on. Great news … right? No more worrying about taxes. Right? Well, that’s not necessarily true.

What happens to us when we die? Well, in the simplest terms, death is what you make of it. Some spirits end up in their own private hells. Others spend eternity in some sort of dream. But mostly those are people with preconceived notions of what is going to happen. For the rest of us, becoming a spirit is a matter of freedom from the material world. We become beings of pure energy. Oh, we aren’t the mass of our bodies converted to energy, just the energy of our will. That has limits.

But what do we DO with eternity - assuming we have one? Do we have any purpose? Do we eventually fade away to nothingness? Do we jump from one life to another? Truth is, the plot is largely up to the group and the characters you create. You can look in on your loved ones. You can seek revenge. You can find purpose in helping some mortal get through tough times. You might be discovered by someone with spiritual powers. Maybe you will haunt a location.

The rules of being a Spirit are listed at the RP.
While I have created this as a Jump In RP, PLEASE READ THE RULES!!! You MUST have a CS with ALL the information listed in the Blank CS form PRIOR to posting. POSTING RULES are listed in the OOC Section.

Spirit Physiology
powerlisting.fandom.com/wiki/Spirit_P…
The following are standard powers of spirits. They will all be at Basic level if levels apply. Limitations will apply. Some powers will contradict. Energy Independence will not apply is powers like Telekinesis are used. Possession can be extremely taxing. You will need to find a way to replenish your powers. Teleportation is very short ranged.

Travel is mostly by walking or slow flight. So wherever you died is where you began.

Spirit Abilities
docs.google.com/document/d/1KmhUrsKea…

New Powers or Applications
These will only be added with Storyteller permission in advance. This means No Godmodding them. As the Storyteller I may seek approval of other members of the group.

Evolution
Spoiler alert. Being a spirit is NOT the end of the story. It is the beginning. Over time spirit may evolve into something greater. Along this path they may eventually return to a material form. Or they may evolve into an angel or demon. Even that is not the end. The variations are nearly endless. Most spirits end up as wraiths, forced to drain the life forces of humans to keep from fading away. Some end up as Ascended or Near Ascended beings.

Spirit - Spirit Interaction
Spirits may interact with one another normally. However, some powers will have no effect. Take TK as an example. No body? No effect. And if one has evolved a new physical form or possess a body, they can resist. Of course, if a Transcendent Angel shows up, you will be its playtoy. But that is an OP situation. One soul cannot possess another. (Although it might devour you.) And death … is not as permanent as it is for a mortal form.

Plot
But what do we DO with eternity - assuming we have one? Do we have any purpose? Do we eventually fade away to nothingness? Do we jump from one life to another? Truth is, the plot is largely up to the group and the characters you create. You can look in on your loved ones. You can seek revenge. You can find purpose in helping some mortal get through tough times. You might be discovered by someone with spiritual powers. Maybe you will haunt a location.

Characters
Yes, you will need to post a CS. You can appear as you did at any point in your life. In other words, if you were 80 years old, you could come back as a spirit looking as you did when you were 20. However, you clothing will also appear as it did at that point in your life. (This may eventually change with experience.)

Yes, you may have a second character. But please don’t abandon one in the middle of a thread with someone else (unless they ghost … pun intended).

Posting Rules
No bunnying, godmodding, etc.
Use 3rd person, past tense.
Don’t jump into someone else’s scene without consent. Ask in OOC first.
Hide any animated gifs.

Site Rules Apply (I shouldn't have to say it, but ...)

Post Format
Start each post or post section with the name of your character.
End by tagging those you want to invite into the thread. (Use Closed if you want to just do a personal post of something your character is doing. Note: this may not leave you closed to the Storyteller if you draw attention with your actions.)

Your Character
You are a set of identical Monozygotic twins - one male; the other female. This is impossible. You are impossible. The only difference in your genetic makeup is the difference of an X or Y chromosome. You look like brother and sister. However, you are able to sense whatever the other senses. And your combined intelligence gives you a well above average IQ. (Genius or supergenius). Physically you approach perfection as well, on par with a very good athlete. Your senses are slightly superhuman. Your memory is eidetic.

What you do NOT know is that you were born in the 2050’s. Your mother wasn’t even your real mother. She was a research assistant who realized that the experiment that created you violated ethics. When the experiment was compromised she stole you and fled into the past. To avoid detection she moved to a small town in Montana where she met a rancher who fell in love with her. She avoided encouraging you to become anything like an Olympic athlete for fear you would be noticed. She allowed you to live as normal a childhood as was possible.

Now you and … you … have reached young adulthood. And are on your way to a major university.

My Character
My character is from a similar time - a little later. Like you, she was the result of a forbidden experiment. Like you, refuge was sought in the past. Unlike you she was bioengineered for athleticism. She would be a match for any athlete on the planet.

Katsya
docs.google.com/document/d/1D9tEbJHB9…

She is rather on the wild side. However, she harbors a secret. She is a true hermaphrodite. She is fully capable of parthenogenesis.

While her CS says Chicago, the RP can be set anywhere in the USA that there is both a major university your character would attend … as well as cage fighting and monster truck rallies and sports. (Katsya won’t go into sports where she will be medically tested.)
