The Colony Ship: initium Novum This roleplay will be run by @Zen, @Kino, @Eternalfire61, and @UltimaCircuit Initium Novum - a colony ship that contains 10 million people and androids is traveling through space to find a new home. The ship has been traveling for 105 years and its journey is almost over. However, unrest is brewing in the ship as one of the Council Members, Xavier Reeth steps down from his position and requests an android to take his place. For generations, the Council has been made up of only humans and this choice has riled up the citizens. Will the people get behind this new android Council member, or will rebellion ensue in the colony ship? Background Information (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Background Information (open) Background Information (close) The main setting of this roleplay will be on a colony ship with a small fleet of escort ships. The colony ship itself contains many other ships that are designated to certain tasks. Harvester ships shall leave the ship momentarily to take minerals and water from nearby asteroids and other sources. The main power core has priority over everything for the Mana that comes in from the harvester ships. Repair ships shall leave the ship when there has been damaged inflicted to the outer hull. Internal damage to the ship will be attended to by members of the Maintenance Branch. Military ships and various other ships are also docked within the Initium Novum. Levels of Initium Novum (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Levels of Initium Novum (open) Levels of Initium Novum (close) (Each level has their own type of mess hall, health care, and living space depending on their according description.) Initium Novum: Level 1 The lowest level of the Initium Novum. This level is the slum of the colony ship and the poorest of the poor live on this level. Those who reside upon Level 1 are looked down upon by all levels and usually do most of the manual labor needed for the Initium Novum. People from Level 4 usually refer to the Level Ones as people who are worthless or those who just take up space. This level is also notorious for it’s whores, underground clubs, jails, and gambling of vouchers. Initium Novum: Level 2 The second to last level of the Initium Novum. This level is what most would refer to as the lower middle class. Most of the people that live on this level consider themselves lucky to not be from Level 1. The living conditions of Level 2 are slightly better than that of Level 1 and most of the people who reside on this level are part of the Maintenance Branch since the Maintenance Branch HQ is on this level. Those of levels 3 and 4 still consider the people of Level 2 to be in the same boat as the Level 1s and treat them like trash. Entertainment Hub The Entertainment Hub of the Initium Novum is not part of any level and is towards the front of the colony ship. This area is as tall as all of the levels combined and is meant for people of all levels to enjoy. This area is filled with many forms of entertainment, like theatrical plays, movies, and even virtual reality theme parks that change based on seasons. Initium Novum: Level 3 The third level of the Initium Novum. This level is what most refer to as the upper middle class. This level is in the middle of all levels and is typically neutral about all relations in between the levels. Some of this level view the lower levels badly and the others don’t. The environment for this level is very average and there is nothing that significant for this area. Initium Novum: Level 4 The level before the fifth level in the Initium Novum. This level is where the richest of the rich live. People of the lower levels usually hate those on Level 4 due to their snobbiness and their lack of understanding of the lower levels. This level has what any typical rich area would have - a private golf course, grand water fountains, and large homes. Some politicians who work in level 5 can live in level 4. Initium Novum: Level 5 The uppermost level of the Initium Novum. This level is regarded highly by people from all levels, especially because those of the Council reside here. Only people with the highest reputation are even allowed to take a step in this level. Those who try to take a step on this level without given access are condemned to jail in Level 1 for a month. They shall also be stripped of all vouchers on their person and will have to re-earn them through manual labor. Political meetings and new programs for AI/Androids are on this level. Vouchers (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Vouchers (open) Vouchers (close) Vouchers are the currency used in the Initium Novum. Necessity Vouchers are vouchers that can be exchanged for food, artificial crystals, and other items an individual would typically need. Entertainment Vouchers are vouchers that are given out to individuals once every week. These vouchers can be used in the entertainment hub to pay for games, movies, and other activities. Depending on the type of labor one does, they will receive a number of vouchers from the two types. Mana (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Mana (open) Mana (close) The power source for all Magitech items. Mana is a scarce resource that comes in two different types. Internal Mana is the mana that is retained by a living being. Their mana can be used to power Magitech devices based on their condition and physicality. If internal mana is used for too long or if the individual goes over their limit their stamina will be lowered greatly. External Mana is the mana that is extracted from deep within rocky structures. It is a visible light blue energy and can only be used after it has been extracted and placed into artificial crystals. AI (Move your mouse to reveal the content) AI (open) AI (close) AI or Androids are mechanical beings that have been created by the human race in order to aid with tasks. As Mana, there are two types of AI. Normal AI, or what most refer to as VI (Virtual Intelligence)I are Androids that have been created to do specific tasks. These AI are mostly seen with the Maintenance Branch or voucher shops. Sentient AI are a new kind of AI that have the ability to think and make decisions on their own. These AI are usually owned by those on Level 4 and are rarely seen on the lower levels. Magic System (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Magic System (open) Magic System (close) Humans: Using 10 point system. Spells cost a certain amount of points to use, at least for humans. Humans can use whatever spell, and the more points spent, the more powerful a spell is. Androids: Androids use modules as they do not have their own biological mana pool. These modules work on the 10 point system as well, but their spells have already been chosen for them via the modules. Modules hold spells of a specific type and the modules need to be changed out if they want to use a different type of spell. Ex. If a android has a Fire module in, they cannot use Arcane or Water spells. To change to this type of module, androids need to switch them out. Removing a module is similar to surgery and cannot be pulled out at a moment's notice. To beat a spell, the opponent needs to cast a spell that is of a higher point value. Ex. A barrier is raised with 5 points. To break this barrier, a spell with 6 points needs to be used. One can use a crystal to raise their mana pool, and the points only go away when you cast the spell. A crystal can also be used to cast a spell, but is then used up.
