View attachment 9255 December 31, 1899 London Town View attachment 9065 The sky, thick and black with storm clouds; looming on the horizon like an ill marked omen, promising bad fortune to any one foolish enough to cross it's path. In the distance, cords of lightening rip through the air and the booming crackle of rolling thunder can be heard. Already the temperature has dipped well below freezing, and the moisture hangs in the air like a blanket of solid ice. This is gonna be a storm to remember! One that will live through history as the true 'Storm of the century', and it will not fail to live up to it's name! The black skies gave way to storm so quickly that few had time to prepare, few had time for much of anything, but one man sat alone in his study with nothing but time on his mind. ...nothing but Time and travel. The era of Steam powered technology and gear driven competition! It’s an age of invention and ideas, imagination and creativity. A constant struggle to invent that which is yet to be has created a vicious rivalry among the endless supply of Professors, scientists and Engineers. View attachment 9066 Among those is Doctor Arthur Stein, known to his closest comrades as simply 'Doc'. He is well liked by most and respected greatly by those who work with him. While his peers, on the other hand, think of him as a bit of a quack. On the eve of this new year Dr. Stein has stumbled upon an invention so hideously amazing it will shatter the core of reality. It is well after midnight and the storm is moving in, but he can’t contain himself, staring at his prototype steam powered time machine with child like wonder. Outside, away from the crackling fires and kerosene lanterns, a lone bird battles against the slowly escalating storm. The closest living relative to prehistoric beasts, this little fellow is out of luck as tendrils of ice and snow began to pour down with godlike ferocity. This is definitely not a night for experimentation, and just as the heart of the storm moves into position, experimentation is the only thing on the doctors mind. ......to be continued IC Semi important stuff Welcome everyone who expressed interest in this thread, and also to any new comers that have stumbled here from the forum! 1. This is an alternate reality RP, obviously, as my fictional '1899 London town' is a steam punk based world. You are free to choose what your character's time era is like, be it just as it is historically or of your own making. I leave this up to you! 2. At the start of the game, regardless of 'when/where' your character is from (you are free to be from the fictional London that I created, I leave this up to you as well). There will be a terrific storm (Should be the main focus in your intro IC post). This will be the event that sends us all to the same place. This event is what links all of you together with The Doc's Time machine! 3. We'll be doing some serious time hopping in this game. This will keep the game new and fresh, as together we try to get back to our respective time periods. I have a solid plot for the start of the RP. My games usually follow a tight plot at first, since most rps like to die in the first couple pages : ) That being said, I am a super laid back GM and always willing to hear ideas and thoughts. 4.The Start of the RP will be us all encountering a massive storm in our respective times, and being sent to the land of dinosaurs and mammoth burgers. Also, just cause my character is a professor/scientist/doctor doesn't make him the only professor/scientist/doctor..if you wanted to play the role of someone relating to time travel somehow, be my guest..or not, again, up to you. 5. My character is named Doc. CHARACTER SHEET SKELETON Name: Age: Time era: (The one you are from) Appearance: Persona: Skills/abilities: Equipment: (You were thrust back in time unexpectedly, so basically whatever you had in yer pockets) Short Bio: (Short) LASTLY! I probably wont go IC with this until later next week or next weekend, So no rush posting character sheets.
