The Road Before Banishment. The human race, a fine example of failure. After years of pollution expanding in size, the human race started to feel the back lash and became severely ill. Scientist scrambled to find a cure, and when they were told the cure was needed now, they gave it up without any proper trial runs. Weeks after the cure was given to citizens of every country, everyone seemed fine, but a few seemed to get worse. Those few seemed to expand and change rapidly into mutants, thirsty for blood. Many died, in the years to follow and the known survivors were placed into a city like colony, and a large wall was built around it. Years of training a team of Scavengers to retrieve supplies from the outside, the city began to run out of supplies. Sending out a group of Scavengers, they had no idea what was going to happen next. In armored trucks, the Scavengers made their way through the newly grown forest that surrounds the city. Along the way, they were attacked by a very large mutant, and find their weapons are almost useless in killing him, which allowed him to take out half the team before being killed himself. Making their way to a small drug store, for bandages to aid those injured, they again were attacked, but this time it was a group of Dome heads. Luckily none were killed, mostly thanks to a surviving woman named Adia, who aided them in killing the mutants. Having Adia join the team, she told them of how the mutants were mutating themselves to become strong enough to survive an attack from the best weapons money could buy. Making their way through the jungle, they get to the Ruins, where a lot of the supplies was kept pre-mutant era. All survivors start to get this feeling about the place, like something bad was going to happen. Jocelyn, Joshua, Mika, a small hand full of scavengers, and the survivor Adia, hesitated on going into the ruins, but after a minute Mika decided to go in and retrieve the supplies himself. A hour passed before they others realized he had not come back. Going in, they found Mika sitting against the wall in fetal position, he had gone insane. Trying to calm him down, Jocelyn is approached my a old man, she and the rest of the scavengers are warned to leave for bad things will happen to them if they don't. Jocelyn looked at the man and asked him what he had done to their friend, but got the response of him pointing down the hallway and stepping back into the shadows. Looking down the hallway, the group saw a Tank, turning to run another sprung from the entrance and sprinted straight for them. The group ran, dashing down a side hallway that opened up to a courtyard. After running and dodging mutants, the group managed to make it back to the truck, and escaped, (There is more that happened at the ruins, but the story telling of it is a surprise for the IC). Little did the group know that they were being stalked by the pair of Tanks from the Ruins. A day after getting back to the city, the city was attacked by the mutants who managed to enter the gates somehow. The council of elders sought out who lead them back (the group) and banished them out into the wilderness to fend for themselves, and all Scavengers were to go with, in hopes of training a better batch of Scavengers. The Banishment After being banished, the Scavengers are left to walking the forest with no direction. They have no home: nothing! They are in search of a place to start over and live safely. Though things become difficult with Mutants stalking them at every turn, and having to fight for their lives. __________________________________________________________________________ Kinds of Mutants View attachment 62890 View attachment 62891 View attachment 62892 View attachment 62893 View attachment 62894 View attachment 62895 View attachment 64983 View attachment 64984 View attachment 64985 View attachment 64987 (From left to right: Top row) "This is what we call the hunchback" "We started calling it Frankenstein, only because it eats the corpses of other Mutants and some how heals from it."

I am the GM, and my word is final. I may in the future appoint a second GM, and they will have the same power. I make the rules I enforce the rules, and I do have the power to kick you out. That being said, I will do my best to make fair judgments in regards to any situation. I am actually pretty nice! 2. Basic rule, I have a character Skeleton for a reason, please use it. It's not fun when I have to look for information that may or may not be there. 3. Please, for this rp, USE REAL PICTURES. 4.Under no circumstances are you allowed to post without a GM accepting your character. We have to make sure that each character is up to code. 5. Please flesh out the characters, I like seeing that people put effort into their characters, and that they took time to have some formatting and other things. 6. Please be kind to all your other rp friends, we don't want people feeling attacked or threatened by other. It helps create a more cohesive bond between players. 7. There is no character limit, you may have as many as you think you can handle' 8. Please make all your character sheets on the same one, will help stop others from searching through countless pages for your sheet. 9. Have fun~ ~IC Rules~ 1. No god moding. Everyone hates it, especially me. We don't have much physical interaction such as fighting in this roleplay, but it can happen, so don't have your character instantly knock someone twice their size out and come out unscathed. 2. This one goes with the first one, no automatic hits. It kind of sucks when someone just hits you in the face over and over and then throws you off the building without you being able to do anything, like a dummy. Don't do it. 3. As this is an OPEN AGE roleplay, so please if something gets to that "stage of romance" fade to black. 4. Cursing. Now, I know some characters are not going to be the sweetest, and some are just going to have a few instances, but I am completely fine with your characters cursing. However, five every single sentence is kind of extreme, so try to avoid putting one in everything. 5. GRAMMAR! Now one of my pet peeves is having people who spell things shorthanded. It doesn't matter to me if there are a few mistakes here and there, but when I have to spend 5 minutes reading a three sentence paragraph, I don't enjoy it as much. Please refrain from using text talk and please try to use a spell checker if you don't know English very well. There is an exception though, when your Character is actually texting! 6. Likewise, only type in third person. Reason is, first person can confuse people. It makes them get lost in all the I's, since there would be a ton of them. So please, for my sake and the sake of others, use third person. If you have actually read all the rules, please put Mutant at the bottom of your CS in all caps. 7. Feel free to interact with a NPC or more! 8. YOU CAN NOT BE YOUR OWN PARTNER/LOVER! I hate it when people do this, it sucks to be done, and if you plan on having a drama point based on the fact that two of your characters were together, that's fine as long as as it is now over. 9. Please try to post a paragraph each time. I really detest having a lot of 1 liners, so please try to keep them away. (I understand if you get writers block or something, just tell us real fast so we don't think you're not trying.) 10. Try not to go to far without me posting, I hate feeling left behind. _______________________________________________________________________________ Character Sheet (Please use realistic pictures) Name: Age (above 16): Sexuality: Was your Scavenger apart of the group that went to the ruins: How long have you been a Scavenger: Weapon of choice (Please have picture as well as name of weapon): Markings (This includes tattoos, piercings, scars.): Personality: History: Family: Secrets: Relationships: Thoughts about being banished: Health Ailments: Talents(that could help you survive): Any other Information: ________________________________________________________________________ Character Skeleton (Name and what page they are on): Joshua Davids - Page 1 Jocelyn McBeth - Page 1 Nicolas Valtin - Page 1 Vivian Westwood - Page 1 Jessica Shin - Page 1 Mackenzie Toulon - Page 1 Claire McFar - Page 1 Derek Huntington - Page 1 Adia Lynn - Page 1 Tobais Lynn - Page 14 Amber Jackson- Page 12 Vann Carson - Page 8 Maverick Colt - Page 8 Gail Nolan - Page 8 Oscar Tylan- Page 5 Jedidiah Smith- page 2 Bradley Middleton- page 2 Trenton Singer - page 2 Aaron Bulletin - Page 22 ________________________________________________________________________ If your character has been approved, IC is here!
