Original poster

Plot: The world is in crisis mode, a number of large countries, both in the developing and developed areas, are quickly dying out due to famine, plaques and natural disasters, too name a few, the goverments have sent their best people out to find a solution, they have none, but they have found something. A small sparsley populated country seems to be the only place non-affected by any of the drama, and it appears that it won't. So the goverments take joint control of the country and offer some of their richest people 'places' on this island, soon a certain number of places are snapped up. There's still places on the island, and a lottery is held, allowing a select number of people passage to the country.

This country is likely to be the only place that will remain unaffect by all of this, but will these people, from all differnet walks of life be able to get on? Or will everything fall apart? Are they simply too differnet?

Anya is an only child, being the apple of both her parent's eyes, they would wrap her in cotton wool if they thought it would keep her safe. She's currently doing a degree in English while helping her mum out a bit in the fashion end of things. She plans on becoming a writer and fashion stylist, while helping out with the family 'business'
Did you buy your place or win it?: Parents bought her place.
Personality: Anya isn't afraid to speak her mind, if you offend her or her family she goes into agreement mode, she's close to both her parents and feels like she can talk to them about anything and everything, though she's protective of them both. She sometimes has a short temper but generally she's well mannered and caring, but when things go wild she isn't afraid to get stuck in the middle, no matter what the outcome might be.

Thank you two for joining.
I didn't think anyone was going to join
You're welcome ;) this looks like a good rp ;)
I was thinking of starting this with them arriving on the island/country, perhaps they all have to board a plane that takes them there? Or shall we skip all that and just have them on the island?
I think that having them on the island is the best thing to do. When you start in some vehicle like plane or bus, people usually don't do much as in real life. There will be more opportunities to interact with each other straight on the island.

Actually, do we know how the island looks like? Or what there is? It might be useful to add it in the first post.

I would imagine the island to be rather modern looking, silk building, all the basics, luxury things for the rich, but still with the air of a developing place. I'm picturing pure blue water and pea green grass.

I'll find my best to find a picture to explain it all better.
Hope more players come soon so we can start :)
I think we just need one more, then we can start
