  1. Story intro

    June 20th, 2012

    "Good grief! Where is all of this heat coming from?" Cicadas screeched loudly permeating the Texas beach with the feeling of uncontrollable heat, while the young blonde fanned herself with a tanning voucher.
    "Celina, everyone else on the beach seems to be just fine except you." Her boyfriend commented from a stretch of sand beside her. Celina scanned the other picnicking groups on the beach, who, as he said, were having a splendid time. "Well that's just not fair." She pouted fanning herself harder.
    " Well, then take off your swim suit." He commented propping himself onto his elbows with a mischievous grin. She smiled, sarcastically scrunching her nose. " In your dreams, Micheal." Celina sighed fanning herself violently "I really, don't feel so good." she moaned. Her boyfriend sighed "oh don't play that with me," Celina stopped fanning herself abruptly, frozen in place " your mom told me all about your- " Blondie literally melted into a puddle of water in front of him. After a moment of mouth gaping silence he scrambled to his feet and over to her puddle. "CELINA?!" Celina was obviously not there anymore.




    "BREAKING NEWS, a young woman, this morning reportedly melted on a Texas beach, and later an elderly man burst into flames in a shopping mall, stay tuned for these stories at the top of the hour." The lovely brunette's smile was deceivingly hopeful of events taking place. That day more than 113 reports of melting, bursting into flame, whisking away on the wind and turning into stone rocked the nation's news. By the end of the week the numbers had reached just over 2,000 incidents and 746 bystander deaths worldwide. The world was confounded by an ever spreading epidemic that seemed to be tied to bursts of elemental furry.

    The US, France, Germany, South Korea, the UK and Canada, forming a coalition put in place advanced quarantine regulations requiring weekly examinations for each of the victim's family members and those exposed to it; together they pooled their medical resources discovering the genetic marker that had emerged in the recent medical history of every victim. Thankfully, the marker was not present in every citizen examined but, terrifyingly, it could not be predicted either. Citizens of the world lived in fear of developing the marker and instead of seeking to help others through their loss were reclusive or visited the specialists excessively.

    Less than a month later any occurrences of the disease seemed to had ceased, leaving as abruptly as it had come. The disappearance of the epidemic left a wave relief and confusion among the citizens as well as Coalition specialists analyzing it. The families of the dead barely had time to grieve. Exactly one week later the discovery of a frozen Lake Mead left many questions as to how it had occurred in late July.

    A short yet secretive investigation revealed it to be the cause of one person. A person with the epidemic's marker who had NOT died. Once the US shared this information with the other governing countries, they were informed of others across the world; each affected, by a different element, that had not died of it. Collectively making four elements: water, earth, fire and air. They were taken into forced custody for "safety" reasons.

    The press did eventually find out about them, actively hounding government officials with the excuse that the victims had done nothing wrong and had the right to freedom over their own lives. Others, mainly families of previously lost victims, took the view that the people who had survived caused it or because they now controlled the element that they were now possessed with the spirits of their dead loved ones. The Government agreed to freedom but did not concede the right to protect the public from the potential danger.


    The solution? The four Elementals are to be offered special housing by the coalition, outside Seattle, where their lives will be monitored by a newly formed protective detail (EPMD). In condition to that, they were required to sign a non-disclosure agreement about their elemental powers. How do they deal with loosing their previous lives? What can they do with their elements? What will they do next? Will life go on?


    ____________________________ Setup _______________________________


    I've set this up to be more of a Nonchalant "Slice of Life, after the incident" Role play with elements of romance, action, mystery, and comedy and should feel like a futuristic, doomsday, fantasy. This is a relaxed, open world in which the characters decisions effect how the world perceives the new elemental generation. I do have a few story arcs planned but they aren't fully thought out and I won't put them into play until the characters are comfortable with each other.

    ~Rules~



    Destruction;
    Even though this is an elemental based role play and I want you to be creative with how you use each element, there will be no major destruction of the complex. If you have a plan, please, just communicate with me.



    Mild Language and Sexual content;
    This is means no Sh**s or F***s. Be creative with expressive words. Anything other than general couple touching/kissing goes to PM.

    A few post per week, minimum;
    If you have trouble doing this it's fine, we'll be considerate. You must realize that interacting and not replying within a reasonable amount of time breaks the flow.

    One Paragraph posts;
    If you can't put enough description into your character's thoughts, mannerisms or dialog to fill six sentences, or even try to do so, please don't sign-up. I do, however, understand that certain situations do not allow for very much description. My point is, do your best. Absolutely no, one-liners.


    Me;
    I don't think I'm too strict about rules but I reserve the right to ask you to cease and desist when I feel the story is compromised. Also, I have no intention to upset anyone on purpose but I do have morals, I try my best to practice them and hope that you understand when I say Please don't do this or that. Of course, I owe you an explanation, just ask :) I'm open to suggestions for pretty much anything as well.


    Please post at least a work-in-progress Character sheet here for my review. I already have a group where you can place the complete ones.

  2. Link to the Group, I still want you to sign up at least a WIP character here though.
     
  3. May I reserve the Water Elemental? I'm in my classes xD
     
  4. Actually, I hadn't updated since this morning. Water is taken I'm afraid. :/ I'm Awfully sorry about that.

    All we have left, until the second generation of elemental, is Earth. Are you interested in playing a non-elemental?

    ⇔History⇔
    Nathan was raised in Korea by a normal Korean family. He was an only child his father had a well paying job, and his mother stayed at home. Throughout his childhood though, Nathan came into trouble when kids began trying to befriend him because his family was well off. Bringing it up to his mother, he was instructed to test his friends if they were honest or not, resulting in a painful loss of all his friends. Lasting through a lonely middle school, Nathan entered high school and secretly began to buy his friends and his kindness was taken advantage of many times. Fearing the loss of his 'friends' Nathan didn't stop and learn that no matter what, if he was nice and rich he would have friends. When his parents found out they decided to sent him to the U.S. in hopes he would make new friends, and he was a hit in the small high school of Fairsville, Oregon, because of his unusual friendliness to not only the girls, but the guys also. Now a 'grown man' Nathan contacts his old friends at least once a week, though most don't answer.

    ⇔Secrets⇔
    Alistair has Chronic Anemia. Not that big of a deal really but he's been advised by doctors to avoid being cut or to perform any strenuous physical activities. The latter he mainly chooses to ignore.

    Pretty sure he doesn't even know this himself but he has the weird knack for being able to fix complicated machinery.


    ⇔Personality⇔
    Its incredibly uncanny how much his mannerisms are like that of a stray cat. Taking unusually long naps, generally aloof, and far too curious for his own good. He also has a naturally calm and enigmatic presence about him that tends to leave others in a state of tranquil wonderment. Most interpret him as a generally passive individual but below the surface is a surprisingly honest and perceptive young man. It's generally easy for others to become quickly comfortable around him to the point of where they casually refer to him as a friend when they've only met about fifteen minutes ago. Even the silence around him has a nice serene affect. Aside from that, a lot of people don't really know that he is very selfless and protective. Alistair is willing to distance himself from those he cares about in order to protect them and stop them from getting embroiled in his own troubles. Even if they end up hating him.

    Bygone times






    ⇔History⇔
    It can be easily said that Alistair did not have the perfect childhood. That was made sure by his grandfather and almost nearly the entire side of his father's family. They all didn't approve of his marriage towards Alis' mother in the first place, considering her too poor and inadequate. It only became worse when she had unfortunately died during childbirth. That it was some sort of sign that their union was not just. The only people who didn't believe in such foolish things were Alistair's father, Uncle Albert, and Aunt Lucille. The three siblings were as thick as thieves since childhood and remained that way all the way to adulthood. So it wasn't a surprise that the two were quick to support their brother's decision.

    They made sure to shelter Alistair from the biast hate their relatives held for him. However the only person they could not protect him from was their own father. It wasn't until after a certain incident occur did his father make the decision to send him away to Alistair's mothers parents. There he faced no prejudice and was welcomed with open arms.

    Was one out of a billion things his friend, Martin had to say about Alistair's current predicament. Although the latter didn't appear to be the least bit perturbed by his situation. To others who knew him well however noticed the slight change of attitude he held. The way he tried to take less naps and spent more time around the cafe after hours as well as hovering around his grandparents. They were all too aware of his reluctance to leave them behind but also the overflowing curiosity he held for the others of his kind.

  10. Doone. Kind of. I did already call for wind but light and darkness was too good to pass up. So long story short I'm not a good decision maker. Thats why I'm asking for opinions instead. Any idea which one I should choose?
     
  11. Gosh, I think Alistair would be a grandiose character either way. I do have to inform you that, I know this is fantasy don't get me wrong, Darkness is not a separate thing it's simply the absence of light itself. So, yeah, you could draw all the light out to make a "ball of darkness" but the shadow travel is definitely a no go for this generation. I really want to make the story with lots of fantasy freedom on the elements but since it's just being discovered I'd like it to be on the more real-ish side; As if it would ever happen hehe *pout*.

    Also, the other elements will be discovered later I'm thinking unless we get an earth elemental I'll replace it with light being one of the first found/marker exposed. As time goes on, we can add others


    Accepted either Air or Light,
    *whispers* I vote light


    Can you expand on what you mean by
    "light plasma- balls of light with a concentration of energy" in the group chatting thread?

  13. I think I'm going to leave plants/nature as a living thing which can not be controlled( nor dead things).
    So, earth is just dirt, stone etc.

    Moon Child, I believe, has landed on the light element side of the seesaw. Someone better get on there to balance him out real quick; other wise he might be back in the center again.

  14. I guess I'll get started on writing a character sheet for the Earth or Electricity Elemental... though I'm leaning towards earth.
     

  15. Just thinking of different combos -
    Water could make a cloud - Electricity shocks the cloud sending electricity through the molecules which all in all would create a thunderstorm.
    Air makes a tornado - Water helps and makes a water sprout - Electricity sends lightning into the water - Earth sends boulders into it so they can fly out - Big horrible flying death tornado
    Earth separates the ground - Water fills it with water - Shocks the water - Earth closes the top - Death trap
    o.e I'm just yeah I don't know I'm weird I'm gonna go for Electricity or Air or Earth whatever isn't taken c:​
     
  16. Well it's good that your both on the fence because I was about to create an electricity elemental for a story progression. We can talk about this more in the group (it's an actual group not a different thread) conversation thread as to how it will be used.

    If you can be creative with earth that would be really fantastic. I always lack things, other than earthquakes and the like, to use earth for.
     
  17. plenty of stuff that could be done with earth- launching condensed pebbles like bullets, using pillars of stone to propel yourself in different directions. Pretty much earthbending from Avatar or concrete element from InFamous Second Son

    Electricity is a lot more straightforward, fast speeds, lightning bolts, manipulating electronics, etc.]

    That being said, as much as I like electricity- and it would probably match my character better, I think I'm leaning towards earth

    I notice, we have no female characters yet... Not that I can really do anything about that, I dont really play female characters.

  18. ...well I'm dumb. Don't know why I haven't thought of this before but can you play two characters in this RP?

    I think I've got a solution.
     
  19. Moon have you decided on Light then? - I'll be making a female by the way, whatever element I get - Air or Electricity​
     
  20. Actually, if you take a look in the Character Library you'll see that we have two females, a male, a side and three NPCs (one female, two male)
