Please let yours ears enjoy while I tell you of our dilemma. Furpocalypse.... A Utopian Wasteland Earth, 2278. The world has gained so much technology, and so many things have changed. Humans daily have surgery to change themselves, make themselves better. But it was the day when they tried to change OUR kind we will always remember. The day of failure. A scientist had been working for years to give animals human genes and forms, and humans animal genes and forms. The day he succeeded was also the day he failed. Earth, 2282. Four years have past and in those four years the world learned the truth of what happened. As they watched themselves and their friends change or die. A virus was spread throughout the human world the day Scientist Gene Cronic let out his "Anihumal" surgery. "This surgery will change the face of earth as we know it!" If only he knew how dangerously right his words were. The day after 1 million humans and 3 thousand animals tried his surgery. The earth became chaos. A horrible virus now deemed the "Anihumal Virus" attacked humans and animals alike inside their bodies, and millions upon millions began dying in hours. After four years, there's only around 150 normal humans left. Those who didn't die were changed, transformed. Whether they took the surgery or not. The virus had been air born, and it also effected animals. Though there are still animals like the ones there used to be, their minds will never be the same. When the virus hit every creature on earth was suddenly sentient. They could now speak and learn like any human. And some of them were worse for ware. Some of the creatures that had gotten too much of the virus gained more than a voice. They were given a bipedal form and now had thumbs. They're were also those in between. The humans that didn't transform into a fury thing completely either gained parts like ears or tails or for many gained wings. They're were also normal animals who were suddenly strange colors and had parts and pieces they didn't before. No one really knows why some parts were chosen and others not, the virus hasn't been able to be studied since the accident. But those still alive have learned to live in the state they now are. Also the day the virus hit, the earth itself was changed. People say the virus transformed the world itself, being mother nature it had to have been affected. I don't know why the earth turned upside down. But it did. Cities that had been miles high were suddenly all underground. But it wasn't as if they were entirely destroyed. You could still go outside, still up and see the top. Go to the ocean. But it was dangerous, because those whose minds couldn't take the change stayed outside the sunken cities. And they were dangerous themselves. Amazingly after the four years the creatures of the world have rebuilt the cities in a way and rebuilt their lives. Markets and shops have regrown. People trade and sell like they used too hundreds of years ago. The world may have been turned upside down. But life will always go on, in one way or another. Thing is, how will you live yours? This is Ria Nightlink signing out. Hello and Welcome to Furpocalypse! This is a world where only furry or furry type things are left! The setting is in a city like the picture above. Inside the windows and doors are streets and houses. There are people that can go outside and who do go outside. But it is very dangerous out there so most people come back to the safety of the "Shallow House" at night. There us technology in this setting, such as guns and and high tech thingy-ma-bobs. But they're really isn't any 'electricity' left. So think of it like this. You can't plug something in that has no plug in to plug into can you? But a battery can still be used. So technically there is the invention of electricity, but there's no one left to run it and nothing left to run it off of. So only limit technology to something you can build with a potato battery or is small enough to carry on you person. We wouldn't want a poor kitty to get fried! Anyways, the setting is earth, though a futuristic and different one. I will allow the use of magic, but it's only been four years since this virus, so please use some sense in how powerful your abilities are. Everyone is trying to survive and start a new life, so try not to take that away from them by blowing up their new house with a spirit bomb. Now onto to rule like things. 1. This is a furry RP, so please if you want to make a human, either make them have SOME sort of furry part or a furry companion. And I'd prefer if there were only a few humans. Considering there are only around 150 normal humans left on the world. I doubt they'd all be in one city. 2: Be cool, your character is not a god here and most likely not invincible, (whether a bad ass or not.) So please don't take away from another characters fun by never being able to die and or be hurt. 3: Do not just attack another character because, a; you do not like the character type, b; you don't like the person playing the character, c; you're just being a jerk and want to kill everyone, or d; you just don't care. Don't be a jerk alright? 4: Do not spam, though I am fine with two characters having some conversations with themselves if fitting do not post up a ton of messages in a row. And in this area please don't ask for your character to join over and over and over, if I have not said yes yet it is either because I am at work, working on my game and have not refreshed the page, had to go out of town suddenly, or just have gotten distracted. And AS SOON AS I check it i will most likely add you in. So please wait patiently. 5: Please keep the amount of characters you have somewhat simple. I've fine with people having multiple characters, especially in a setting like this, just please if you have more than one make sure you can keep up with them. If you decide you want to change one of your characters, or that you can't keep up with one of them. Let me know and we can find a way to take them out. 6: Please keep the extreme violence, cussing and sexuality to a minimum. This will obviously be a somewhat mature area since it is furry and a society trying to rebuild. But something along the lines of "Damn I wish I'd put my gun on before we arrived in this shit whole." will be exclusive enough. I will allow some cussing but please keep it clean. If i find someone cussing up a storm in uncensored ways i will ban you. I understand a rough rouge with a mouth, but i will not tolerate a nasty person speaking in unnecessary ways. Please do not get intricately into what you plan to do. Be logical. If i need to raise the rating to 16+ let me know and i will. 7: Don't control another character. Just because someone isn't responding or isn't responding the way YOU want does not mean you can control what they say or do. If it gets to where you cannot move forward because it has been SO long since the character you were doing a part with has not responded. Please let me know and i may god-post to fix it. I.e. change the character, changed what happens, have a reason for the character to be missing. But please do not come to me a day or two after they have posted annoyed. Some people have other things they must do. And also you can always come up with a reason for you to join another part of a different conversation. Don't be a jerk. 8: HAVE FUN, i really only want this so people with a variety of characters can join and all interact. I truly want this to be an open, creative place where characters have a huge world to explore. Please above all else have fun! Now only a couple more things to explain. I would like this RP to be an open world. There is a theme, a relative story, but i truly want this to be a bit unending. I want it to be almost like a second life, a place where when you're there you have to plan what you'll do for the day, decide what you'll do for work. That type of thing, just as if you were having to start a new life for yourself. Yes there will be a background story and there will be times were things will change. A new part of the story may come up, a new character will show up, or a new enemy may have to be dealt with. But i don't want an end all of the story. Also as for people who used to be human. If you wish to put up a picture in your character sheet of what they USED to look like that's fine. That way they can reference why perhaps your person looks like that now. But please understand they can NOT change back into that form whenever they please. I love shapeshifters, but they will not be here. It just wouldn't fit or be truly fair to some of the others. It's supposed to have happened through an uncontrollable virus. Some things won't be exactly how wanted. And also yes this is a 'furry' RP but that doesn't mean it has to be a furry creature. It can be a snake/frog/fish person. It doesn't have to have FUR it just needs to be animalistic. Other than all of these tiny boring details PLEASE enjoy!

Where they changed and do they like it or resent it? Extras: anything extra you can think of. MY CHARACTERS: Name: Ria Nightlink Race: Were Raccoon Age: Around 3 in animal years about 20 in human. Gender: Female Appearance: Ria (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Ria (open) Ria (close) Skills/Weaknesses: Ria used to be a normal Raccoon. So she now works as a professional thief for pay. She can fit into almost any tight spot and is known for her flexibility.She can see extremely well in the dark but has goggles that help her see things even she couldn't. They also give her the position of things around her and where she is facing, i.e. north south so and so. One of her weaknesses is food. She loves food and the smell of it can distract her immensely. She also hates water and tries to stay underground merely to avoid it. Weapons/Abilities: She has strong metal claws attached to her real ones and uses them to climb up buildings and attack very quickly. She fast and agile. Personality: She spunky but quiet. If you make her angry she'll tell you but if you don't bother her you probably won't hear much from her. Though she's happy in the form she has now she resents the humans who did this to the animals. She blames them for wanting to be "better" and making the entire world worse. Short Bio: Ria used to be a normal raccoon. One who would steal your garbage and enjoy a night stroll. Until she was changed. Once she found out why and how it had happened she resented humans ever since. Though she has human friends and wouldn't really want to go back to what she was before. She still hates the fact that humans greed did this to her. Name: Sheila Sorro Race: Human turned linx Age: About 22 Gender: Female Appearance: Sheila (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Sheila (open) Sheila (close) Sheila looks as if she only gained ears for her transformation. She hides her short linx tail under her armor, and her animal feet and hands in gloves and shoes made spicificly to hide her animal parts. It's not that she afraid others wouldn't understand. She just feels more human when she looks more human. Skills/Weaknesses: She was once a soldier for a personal army and when she was changed she kept only her armor and giant sword from her previous job. She isn't fast due to the large size of her sword but she can swing that thing like no one else. Men two times her size have tried to even lift it and failed. When she was brought into the personal army of a high class citizen she was given treatments that made her stronger and more agile with such a large weapon. She might not be able to dodge well but she can block very well. She carries the large sword everywhere with her and calls it "lil brother" but she also has a small suicide katana strapped to her back. She will rarely use the blade but can pull it out for a second blocker and attacker if her first sword is busy. Weapons/Abilities: She carries her large sword "lil Brother" and her suicide katana which she's promptly named "Suey". Her abilities mostly lie in the ability to control such a large weapon. Though people have said she has hidden abilities due to the rigorous and mysterious training she took to join the privet army. Personality: A tad on the quiet side she tends to be the tiny one in the corner with the big sword that no on knows. She rarely talks and when she does it comes out a whisper. She doesn't understand why she was transformed and secretly feels responsible for her masters death. Therefore she has become less trustful and rarely makes friends. Short Bio: Before the virus Sheila was hired to work for an Asian Diplomat of high class. Strangely she was hired at an extremely young age and was trained personally by that diplomat. When she turned 16 she was his most powerful asset and also his closest friend. The man and Sheila had grown very close over the years and a father daughter relationship grew. The man was among the first to die in days after the virus hit and Sheila has considered her self at fault since that day. She became sick the same day he did but because of all the strange elements in her body she was instead transformed. She left the privet army and traveled for a year or so in despair. She arrived in the city around a year ago and works as a privet guard for those who need or can pay. Extra: Sheila searches for a way to redeem herself for not being able to save her master. She also secretly searches for another person who she might be able to serve under. But that person must first gain her trust, loyalty and friendship. So far no one has come her way.
