NOTE: This RP was originally a Group Sign Up. Due to little Interest it converted to a JumpIn. If Interested in joining the concept is the same. Sign Ups don't have to be complicated or approved. Just post a small CS so we get an idea. Two hundred and thirty one million years ago was the start of the Triassic period. A time where archeologists claimed that dinosaurs first appeared. Dinosaurs were reptile creatures that roamed Earth for many of years while they hunted or be hunted and tried to survive in every climate possible. But after a hundred and sixty five million years of roaming the Earth, their time ended in chaos. Floods from terrible storms, meteors crashed onto the Earth, extreme climate changes all had something to do with the end of the Dinosaurs. In the 1800's their bones were being discovered by archeologists that created an excitement in the 1900's. At first these bones just appeared as your average hollow bones but there was more to these. They were producing dormant living cells, this caused them to start trying to awaken them and figure out how they were still alive. When the new year, 1962, rolled around there were earthquakes appearing all around from the United States to Hong Kong, Antarctica to the South Pole and everywhere in between. This caused a lot of fear for the people as the earthquakes were fatal. Around 1964 an explosion was reported at Mount Logan in Canada, when people rushed to see what it was, they were shocked at the site. Three unknown large reptiles were spotted roaming near the explosion which later turned out to be some type of dinosaur. After that more and more of them started to appear caused by mysterious explosions. Then in the 1980's-Late 1990's archeologists and scientists learned that there were certain people who were able to "tame" them, this lead to the greatest discovery of "Dinosaur Riding". This caused people to eventually abuse their privilege while others were filled with jealousy trying to steal or kill someones tamed dinosaur. Government claimed Dinosaur Riding to be dangerous and was prohibited throughout the world except for certain parts of Asia but eventually killed of their discovered dinosaurs by hunting them. Early 2000's, Dinosaurs were extinct once again. Nearly fifty years later, people started to "re-discover" the dinosaurs in new locations which eventually led to the prohibited Dinosaur Riding to be legalized by those who were able to tame them. Though there were nearly not as many deaths as before, the world seemed to go backwards in some ways. People started to become more "wild" instead of staying modern, weapons were going backwards as guns were seen less and less, homes were not as classy and transport varied less and less making planes to be less used specifically. People all around the world took a leap into the past metaphorically and people who were able to tame dinosaurs seems to become more common. Till this day scientist have not discovered what allowed someone to tame a dinosaur. But despite everyone's leap to the past with their clothes and means of transport, they started to become more aggressive then things started to turn from bad to worse. Wars and fights between neighbors were breaking out nearly everyday, government lost control and people have turned primeval. Not only are people turning against each other with their dinosaurs but wild dinosaurs still roam the Earth and could be hostile! Your story choices; The Hero Group (6, Some Can Join Later On) The United Nations are trying to find ways to end the chaos that has taken place upon "their world", but few are tamers themselves and have not volunteered to risk their greedy lives to help. Instead they have searched desperately for people of any age, nationality, and skill to fix this mess. A letter has been sent out to those (you) they feel capable of ending this chaos and have them meet together as a group to take care of things. Either you trust the government or you don't, but in the end they are right and things do have to be put back on track... The Opposing Group (5+) You caught wind that the United Nations have sent out letters to people to form a group. But this group was not just any group, it was a group designed to stop the Dinosaurs or so you think. Their true goal is not for sure. Instead you decide to stop them, either be by a group or by yourself. Determination is key. The Side Group The news of a group created by the United Nations has been spreading like wildfire. You are an average working man/woman and may have been lucky to tame a smaller dinosaur. You either have decided to aid the Hero Group or Opposing Group. Can even decide to join a group later on for a short period of time. (Can be a parent or sibling to another person as well. Please request permission from hem first.)
