It had sounded like such a good idea before but we had forgotten the risks of going on this quest... To board an unknown ship called the Nightingale after being promised a better life in a new world was foolish from the beginning. You would have to be insane to even believe in such nonsense. But desperate times call for desperate measures... When your world is turned upside down by a fearful enemy running a dictatorship where everyone is forced to work every day until exhaustion or death, you begin to crave the feeling of breaking from the chains that bind you. So when you are offered freedom, you grasp it with every ounce of strength you have left. On the other hand, what would life be without difficulties? During the time you are on the vessel, small but dreadful mistakes trigger a key clue. You realize that half the people on the cruise aren't exactly who they seem to appear to be on the outside, they are outlaws or delinquents, people with hidden pasts and/or objectives. This is a big problem, especially considering the amount of young children and weaker adults on board. There could be several outcomes to a situation such as this. To make matters worse, four days after being at sea, the ship crashes into uncharted rocks sticking out of the water causing any survivors to make for the circular shaped island in the distance. Once on it, you realize many things; Not all the criminals died in the crash, you are stuck with them. Then again, just as many citizens have died as well... 40% of the island is stone, 50% of it is jungle and only 10% is land or dirt to plant things on (if you have/find seeds). There is little food and no water sources to drink from except the sea. Strange plants coexist with the trees in the jungle, some of which are carnivorous. Every animal on the island has adapted themselves to be dangerous in some way, shape or form. The island is guarded by a mysterious white beast called Bruno, who won't let anything leave without a price. Lastly, as soon as Their masks are ripped off... Rape, murder, theft, lying and chaos begin before two sides are formed; Zilla (the outlaws) and Anthony (the citizens). With no trust among the people, what can you do? Important Notes: Click (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Click (open) Click (close) In the beginning; You will not have a lot of supplies brought onto the ship. You will only have what you could quickly grab from your living quarters before fleeing. You of you had it worse with the dictator than others, you might have even been one of his main servants. You may or may not be traumatized (or have PTSD), You won't really care and instead will move on from it quickly. Because of the above, you will have an easier or harder time trying to escape. Not everyone will know there are outlaws on the ship. The experience is different for every character. During or After the Crash; You could have almost died, made someone else die (NPC's), had gotten away easily by yourself or had played the "hero" and got more than yourself out. Based on who you were before you boarded the ship, you will only have certain supplies and even then you might lose all of them here or most of them. Not everyone will find out about the forest's dangers as quickly as other. The same goes for Bruno. You can become a outlaw here but not everyone. Big No's, Facts and Rules: Click (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Click (open) Click (close) No Playing Killing unless it was your plan from the beginning or the other User has agreed. You can still kill NPC's. <One main character at a time max. You can still play your family members but they can't be the focus. When it comes to the crimes, rape is the biggest. No Gary Stu or Mary Sue's. No one is perfect! Sure you're character can be pretty but not the prettiest with everyone loving them instantly. The name of the island will be decided among the OC after the crash and right before the division. The best one will win. It is Elementary; if you post a sentence as a post, I will ask you to add more. <This drives me insane! You can be an outlaw from the beginning but there must be more citizens at the start than outlaws. No incest, tentacles or critters. Sorry, with this plot idea, I'm not up for it. No technology like computers, cellphones, etc. Compasses are welcome for navigators. Any LGBTQ is welcome. While saying all this in notes... Be reasonable. Be realistic to a sense. Idea Based On (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Idea Based On (open) Idea Based On (close) This was based on my friends dream but only 30 percent was from it. The part about fleeing for some reason (which I made a dictator) to a ship that crashes on an island (the description of the island is hers and mysterious disappearances <which I made man-eating plants and dangerous animals) to the part about rape, murder and robbery breaking out on the island were hers. The names Nightingale, Bruno (the creature was her idea but he was slightly different <didn't trap them) and Anthony were hers. Nightingale was actually the island and Anthony was the person who helped them escape. Except, you can only escape through death in my RP. Sorry but not really. Most of the rules are common sense so... Have fun. and Follow Iwaku rules. That being said... Anyone still interested?
