    • Memento
      A Memory of Today, Kept for Tomorrow, While Remembering Yesterday
      (Modern Fantasy)

      "Mementos" - objects or in rare cases, living beings, that grant a supernatural power called "Ability" to their users "Activators" born from the "Link" the Feelings and Memories the "Activator" associates with or has for the "Memento." Now its 20 June 2015. Almost a year from when the first "Activator" and "Memento" appeared. Now as the percentage of "Activators" approaches 0,01% or 1 in 10000 governments around the world can't ignore the problem anymore. Starting on 17th April with the Activator Registration Law in PR China which obliqued all "Activators" to register in a the newly founded National Activator Registries, countries around the the world regulated "Activators" in may different ways. Now we shall follow the fates of "Activators" and ordinary people in one of the cities of this turbulent times.

      Terms: (open)

      Memento - An object, commonly a nonliving thing, which has established a Link with an Activator and serves as the source of an Ability.
      Link - The feelings and memories which the Activator has for a Memento.
      Activator - The source of the feelings and memories which allow the creation of a Link and a Memento.
      Ability - A magic-like power which is unleashed by a Memento. Memento's can unleash only one Ability. The strength and range of application of ability is defined by the Link. The strength and type of feelings affect the strength of the Ability while the amount and importance of memories increase the range of the Ability.
      Ex. If the basic ability is just to create fire from the Memento, then the feelings are going to influence the temperature and size of the created fire, while if the Link holds a important memory then it might result in the Ability to also control the fire to form missiles or shields.

    • The Infinite IDS
      The Esscela Incident
      (Science Fantasy, Multiverse)


      [​IMG]

      Setting:
      The IDS, mostly in the local orbital area of the planets Esscela & Mayy.

      The Inter-Dimensional Space (IDS), the Everything, a infinite space governed by the three universal laws and inhabited by an infinity of species, build out of Dimensions - shorter from Dimensionally Defined Unique Probability - unique possible realities which can differ between each other in anything from a single even or all the laws of physics & magic. The Post-Dimensional Society, the joint economy and culture of many countries in the IDS which are able to project their military power in any part of the known IDS, is the dominant power in the IDS with an never-ending thirst for power.

      Now in one corner of the IDS a mysterious device left by some ancient civilization is found on a planet under the concession of the Revenul Corporation. Without facilities and experts required to examine such artifact Revenul decides to ship off the artifact to United Corporation, their parent corporation, for study. They hastily load the device into "SS Lorgger" a Forkaw Class Transport, put it into one of the ore-filled convoys to disguise it, while at the same quickly summoning mercenaries to create an escort group for the convoy. But the Pirates of IDS will not waste a opportunity to attack such a target, even if well protected and while making its way, near the planet of Esscela the convoy is attacked and during the course of the attack the artifact on the Forkaw activates, sucking in both convoy and pirate ships far into the orbit of the still undiscovered planet of Mayy. Now Mercenary, Pirate and Mayyins alike will have their fate rewritten by this single event...

      This RP would follow the fates of those that took part in the Esscela incident, primary focused on the Mercenaries protecting the "SS Lorgger" convoy and the Pirates that tried to raid it when the incident happened.

      Relevant terms:
      Esscela - A minor transit system & planet in the outer area of the known IDS.
      Mayy - ? An Earth-like planet. More info will be given as part of the story.
      United Corporation (UC) - The largest IDS corporation which is also an IDS superpower.
      Revenul Corporation- One of the many corporations that have been made/taken over by United Corporation to evade monopoly charges.

      The RP will take place in the town of Buje, which severs as one of the transfer and living places for refugees, human or not, from the more northern parts of Europe.
      Except for the core which can be observed using Google Map or another similar service Buje now has also changed as it is:
      All across the hills around the core of the city before "The Arrival" slums and refugee camps have spawned, reaching somewhere between 20,000-100,000 in population (due to a significant presence of refugees not listed in official files).
      A EUFOR base and airfield also have been build north from the town to help control the Alpine area of Slovenia and defend the Sava river valley, one of the rare parts of the Pannonian basin which evaded becoming a mountain region from the Golden Sun, thus becoming one of the key sources of food for the remains of EU.
      The valley around the city have been turned into as efficient as possible agricultural lands, mostly direct consumption cultures like wheat to evade the cost of nurturing livestock.
      All industrial facilities have been turned towards the needs of stopping the advances of China into EU territory, AKA they are producing weapons and military supplies.

    • StarFall
      The Arrival
      (Science Fiction)

      [​IMG]

      For centuries man has looked at the stars
      Wondering if there is life beyond our world
      Who cloud have know it would come raining down
      Inside a shower of meteorites which would become
      One of the greatest catastrophes in human history.

      It was a normal 4st July 2014, in most countries it was a regular Friday, except in a single country which celebrates the anniversary of declaring independence. But unknown to humanity a cloud of thousand of hundreds space rocks approaches Earth, accelerating as it does. Then at 17:13:23 GTM the first rocks collide with Earth's surface, causing massive devastation as the rocks rain upon all parts of the planet. It takes almost 30 hours for the bombardment to stop, leaving devastated landscapes and countless dead.
      But before humanity can even start rebuilding the surviving remain of the meteoroids which fallen now crack open, unleashing alien organisms of many forms and sizes of which almost all start causing more chaos and destruction; but a few of those aliens form some sort of peaceful cohabitation with humans, be as pets, symbionts or some other way. Now will humanity survive?

      The RP would focus on members of military (and similar organizations) or those who will form some sort of connection with an alien which will allow them to fight back.

      We would start by an introduction post, which will follow the day (or night) of the characters up to a few minutes to the start of the shower at their latitude. Then we shall proceed to the bombardment, getting to a safe place and finally the aftermath scenes. Until this point you can even have and use a temp character that will be disposed off in the aftermath.
      After the aftermath we shall proceed onwards until the part at which humanity or is defeated, manages to hold off the aliens or eradicates them all from the face of the Earth. That will mark the end of StarFall The Arrival and the start of a continuation RP!

    • The Land Behind The Wall
      The Sage of the Wall-Rimmed Sanctuary
      (Science Fiction)

      Map (open)

      [​IMG]

      Timeline (open)

      Some time in the past the misuse of science lead to a great catastrophe of machines and mutated humanoids rebelling against humanity or so tell the old stories. Those non-natural horrors were joined by plagues of immense strength and the climate going totally haywire. One of the old countries decided to erect a safe zone, protected by a wall from mutants and a with machine-frying shield from machines, thous eliminating those two dangers. To ensure that a genetically untouched and "pure" population survives the country finds such people amongst it's population, under the control of scientist and leaders with the same untouched genome, is put into shelters equipped with powerful purifying systems allowing it to get some resources (mainly water and air) from outside. Somewhere during this time a number of people not native to the country come to the construction site of the Wall, usually with naval vessels. Due to a large number of them having a clean genome a number of those were added into the original shelter population.

      Year 0
      The wall is closed and the "zone" is now isolated from the horrors of machines and mutants. To evade biological contamination the "Pure" population is placed in one of the 24 shelters. The shelters are locked for 100 years while the remaining scientist and engineers start working on cleaning all biological contamination from the "zone".

      Year 100
      The shelters open allowing the 72,000 "Pures" to go out and spread trough the now empty "zone". They start to rebuild civilization from the shelters.

      Year 283
      After almost two centuries Tsuho starts to become the prominent center of the land.

      Year 366
      The first mission to the other side of the Wall shows that the world is starting to recover from the effects of the scientific misuse.

      Year 402
      Alpha base is set up outside of the Wall.

      Year 464
      Beta base is set up outside of the Wall. An fly over the remains of the "New Capital" shows that machines and mutants are fighting for control over the ruins.

      Year 498
      Current year. Today the land is populated by around 480,000 people.


      The RP would follow the adventurers of a group of youths from the Land and the sudden end of their ordinary lives with a discovery of a single plaque ...

      Please note that I will only disclose only the info that every one inside the Lands knows in a future OOC! For example the timeline provided is one example since there are many records from year zero up until now for everything inside the Wall. As for the outside information about most of the history after the 20th century was not included in the databases of the shelters.

    • Emari
      The Infinite City

      (Multiverse, Otherworld Fantasy)

      From the "Book of Emari":

      "On the first day, of the first year, of the first age Emari appeared.
      At the first the city was empty but slowly it filled with those which somehow found their way to the city.
      Under the rule of the City Council the city flourished on it's never-ending houses, fields and resources.
      But at the end of the first age humans found it's way in Emari.

      In the Great Human War humans overtook rule over the city and the King of Humanity proclaimed the second age.
      A period of peace fell on the city - this was the second age.
      But after thousands of years of peace demons flooded the city and the gods sent down angels to cleanse the city from the demons - this war is known as Ragnarok.
      Ragnarok lasted for dozens of years until the gods themselves came down into the city and pacified the demons forever - they took over the rule together with a re-established City Council.

      The third age begun under the rule of gods.
      But with the passing of years many gods returned to the place from which they came in the first place, until the finally the last god left Emari.
      A brutal war, name the Inheritance War erupted to take control of the city but the City Council and the Fifteen Great Races signed the Constitution of Emari - in which a census-based Senate of Emari would be selected to lead the city along side the City Council.
      Soon the Republic of Emari - how was the government created and state created by the Constitution called - crushed all resistance and took complete control of the city.
      When the Republic of Emari declared the end of the Inheritance War the fourth age begun - the one in which Emari is already 258 years into ..."

      So this will take place in a city which spreads, via magic, to infinity with new parts of the city being added when they are needed - be mines to mine resources, seas or fields to catch and grow food, factories to produce things. Note that the farmlands and the weather conditions on them are always perfect for what is being grown on them and that all sources of resources (ore veins, oil fields...) replenish themselves at midnight Emari standard day (36 hours of 40 Earth Minutes/60 Emari Minutes)

      To the races which already occupy Emari there are many which come into the city - how and why no one knows - from obviously different worlds, sometime even whole races come to Emari. Actually the races which already occupy Emari also came by unknown way to the city somewhere in the past.

      What does this mean in this RP is that we will be RPing, if enough people come, in a ridiculously big city surrounded by all it needs to run on forever. It will also be filled with non-humans and you will be able to use almost any crossover and original character you can think about! YEAH SCIENCE FICTION, FANTASY, REAL LIFE, ALL IS OK TO BE USED!
