Heya guys! Furasian AKA Cartwright here bringing out an old Metro 2033 inspired RP I worked on in a different site. With the words of another friend of mine I've decided to give it a shot here. So.. Welcome to From the Ashes From The Ashes... In-Character Washingon DC, VAIn 2013 after the missile crisis in the middle east, the major powers of the world waged world war three, the war that ended almost everything that was known to man. It wasn't exactly known who shot first, but regardless nobody won the war. It had been 15 years since the bombs were dropped and the world was engulfed in death. The population of man that used to be in the billions, now diminished to a few thousand people who would try and survive throughout the aftermath. Most of those were people who hid away in the tunnels of the metro stations all over the world, from Moscow to DC. They now in their different conditions face off against monsters, nightmares, and anomalies alike as well as themselves. As time went by, the freezing temperatures and the irradiated cloud seemed to have passed away. While some snow was present, and the dirt had not yet been discovered, it was the first step to recovery and the stage for a new beginning. Brave individuals over time started to leave the stations to find a home in the new barren world while the 'endless winter' over time seemed to be subsiding. In this world, one's actions could make the difference between a bright, and a dark future. --- There ya have it folks! Welcome to the post apocalyptic RP 'From the Ashes' with an anthro touch to it. This RP does have it where you can venture on the surface, but there is a heavy influence on the metro system. Before we can go on, here is a map! ((YOU AS THE RPer HAVE AN INFLUENCE HERE. Want a station to be a settlement? Just point out and hollar!)) Metro Map ((Thanks to Wayne for relieving me of this complicated stuff XD)) The Communists would probably be based at Stadium-Armory and control most of if not all the stations on the east side of the Anacostia River. There are minor skirmishes between the communists and the skinheads, but there is definitely a conflict between this group of people and the military organization. A KKK faction would probably be based at Rosslyn station. The Nazi skinheads would probably be disorganized and scattered all along the Red Line running from Farragut North to Shady Grove. -With hate parties around there was definitely gangs/groups of people with more organization than others. Some have even managed to create a prison to round up their captures so to execute them.. Most of these gangs are nick named 'kill squads' since they have no intention to rob but to simply kill those who are deemed impure according to their values. The population would likely be focused on Metro Center, Union Station, Mount Vernon Square, Gallery Place, L'Enfant Plaza, and the stations around them. The stations pretty much work under a city-state gig, but at times they barely aid/communicate with each other unless something serious happens. The Pentagon might be controlled by remnants of the pre-apocalypse military of the United States, or at least descended from the US military. Over time they've come to be nicknamed 'the patriot' for their ties to the old country and their way of politics. While accepting refugees and occasionally lending a helping hand, they are not able to aid everyone who comes for help. There is a link between them and rangers, but the military faction is not the previously stated rangers. King Street and Fort Totten would be the other big settlements, and they'd probably be independent as well. One of them might even the main population center for an anthro-exclusive faction. Every other station is fair game for making either big settlements, small settlements, raider camps, mutant nests, or just abandoned. ((Wanna make your own settlement? Take a spot my friend!)) Keep in mind there is a more quiet faction lurking around known by many things; Rangers, marshalls, etc... To other factions they can be a kill on sight target or a source of aid... Depending on their values! There is no exact location that is known, but their presence is known. The Outsider's Faction (Move your mouse to reveal the content) The Outsider's Faction (open) The Outsider's Faction (close) "It just stared at me with that unblinking, metallic face, then, as soon as it had appeared, it was gone...." There have been rumors floating around of strange figures seen at a distance, picking through the rubble as if in search of something on the surface. There hasn't been any confirmed reports of their presence nor any evidence they are interested in the others that are located in the metro system. Some speculate some new group of survivors infiltrating the area while others claim they are death drones sent from the US Government to punish a certain faction. Whoever they are or whatever they are, they seem to be well armed, very well equipped, and seem to vanish without a trace. A faction made by one of our roleplayers! Interested in being associated with it? Feel free to pm me or pm @SqL Constantia Harvey ! ((Unless I am told to stop sending people to Harvey then.. Sorry I will correct myself!)) Now, ze rule stuff!

Its quite common for a survivor to bring a gas mask. While the environment has changed there are some areas that require a gas mask in order to survive. 2. Medical kits are always handy! 3. Flashlights. Most portable lights in the metro 2033 world have a hand cranked recharge. 4. Know who you are, and know who might hate your appearance or identity. 5. IT is still cold! You'll find that very few settlements are in a warm location inside the station. With that being said: wood and food for fire is scarce, so there is at times a conflict for such valuable resources, and there is a trade system out there consisting of surface dwellers and business associated traders.
