“Imagine a world with no government. It’s pure freedom.”
“We never have to leave this place. It has everything we need!”
Post-apocalyptic New York City. World War III has finally ended, but caused a great deal of damages around the world. New York City, a once busying city filled with life, is now a run down place with two main boroughs: The Bronx and Upper Manhattan. The other boroughs are in such horrible shape that no one can possibly live there. They are used to hold waste and other garbage, but due to the high percentage of waste removal, Lower Manhattan and parts of the Bronx had to be divided by walls, to also hold the increasingly amounts of waste. Because there is no more recycling, all the waste is gathered into large piles throughout the boroughs, most likely causing radioactivity. Hence, no one is allowed to trespass the wall.
In the Bronx and Upper Manhattan, drugs are sold freely to everyone, pornography has a great value, and the women are easy. The boroughs are beyond over crowded and dust and debris cover the streets. Everyone is high on different kinds of drugs that are sold on the streets.
“It’s tough surviving out there, but we gotta make a living somehow.”
Down every single street, shopkeepers hold every type of drugs at a reasonable price. You do not have to worry about paying over thousands of dollars for cocaine or X or any drug that tickles your fancy. Most of the women are prostitutes sent from the rich district part of Manhattan. You can only tell by the long barcode tattooed on their stomach, right above their crotch. The barcodes are scanned for identity check, just to make sure the women are returned to their proper owner. Since cash is rare and credit cards are limited, the people follow a trading system. If you want heroin, you had better have something good and valuable on you. If you want to have sex with a high-class prostitute from the rich district, do not be surprised that the owner demands a favor from you. This is the life of the people in New York.
“You’re asking me what happened. Fuck, if I know.”
Before World War III ended, the mayor of New York City declared a state of emergency. After this declaration, a gang known as the Overlords assassinated the mayor and took control over the people. Terrorism increased not only in New York, but around the world as well. The percentage of drug usage was increasing each day to escape the reality and to cope with the apocalyptic war.
Secretly however a new drug was being created. A single purpose buried deep in the minds of the dead. One reason made was to relieve people of the war weariness and the state of woe in the world. This drug is labeled Euphoria. This drug has introduced itself on the market and is now the number one in the world. Almost all seek it to escape the harsh reality to an everlasting high. However, the drug is quite expensive and almost impossible to receive in the slums. The rich district, Upper Manhattan, are the creators and holders of Euphoria, so they always have enough. On some days, people from the rich district, drive into the Bronx in black vans holding Euphoria. Their idea of amusement is throwing the drug out to large crowds and watch them fight or even kill over it. You would know this time of event will occur when someone makes an announcement over the microphone and the crowd gathers. This type of game can take place anywhere, so its best that you keep a lookout, you may just get lucky.

THE RULES (yes even in a free roaming type RP, there are still rules):
- Stick with the group, while this RP kinda gives you the freedom to do whatever, I suggest sticking with other characters to provide interaction and plot.
- Don't OD (no pun intended) on the weaponry. While we live in a world where it's almost possible to get anything we want, I still don't want people godmodding.
-Sex is allowed. Detail or fade out effect is totally up to you. If you want to go full out detail, please place spoiler tags between them.
-For your character sheet, you can play either as a gang member, or a regular civilian. I leave it up to you.
-As GM, I do have the right to reject your character sheet if it is unrealistic.
The RP is rated M for Mature due to extreme violence, drug use, sex, and more drugs.
