Gë is a world like any other. It has people and animals and plants. Its surface is, for the most part, green with life and blue with water and white with clouds. Its stars are binary, one blue and one yellow, which occasionally eclipse each other. Its three moons give it a surprisingly stable oceanic environment that covers 40% of the planetary surface; the world possesses three named oceans that surround the two super-continents of the world. The world itself is large, possessing a radius of over 8,000 miles, and is extremely diverse in its population. The only odd things about this above-average, but otherwise normal planet? Its inhabitants use magic. The sentient population is split between races of man-made beasts of war, tall, pale aliens, enigmatic underground dwellers, mysterious monsters to the south, and, of course, mankind. Everyday diseases include vampirism, therianthropy, and a mutagenic STD that feeds on spellcraft. But our story, while vast and important in so many ways, does not begin with a war, though it may end with one. This is not a tale of high adventure or good conquering evil. The year is 2052 3E, and our story follows the lives of four vagrants in the grand city of Resonance, a multiracial, multiethnic metropolis, and the federal capital of the Union of Twelve. They come from many backgrounds, from many peoples, but are united by their common cause: Survive in a cruel, unjust world, and pray to whatever gods they worship that it doesn't get worse... So this is an idea I came up with a little while back. I never posted it because it had issues in need of ironing out, but I finally figured out how to make it work, and so Resonance was born! On a very basic level, this RP is inspired by Shadowrun, but plays very differently and with different themes. While set in a veritable dystopia with futuristic fantasy elements, Resonance is NOT a Cyberpunk RP. The driving elements of this story are adventure-related, but the RP itself is more a slice-of-life taken from the cake of the home- and powerless in a world where magic and science exist in equal measure, nations of supernatural entities wage a cold war that is swiftly growing hotter, and society itself is on the verge of social and economic collapse. Events will be sequential and will grow in magnitude exponentially, beginning with a kidnapping or small gang war and escalating to a full-scale disaster of colossal magnitude. Our characters are most certainly magical, but are neither "chosen" nor messiahs, and are generally average fighters, if they ever learned how to fight at all. They come from all sorts of races and creeds, and vary greatly in relative age. For now, this is just an Interest Check. I encourage people to ask questions to help develop the world and clarify the cans and can'ts of this RP, and hope to see some interest soon!
