  1. Plot
    A large geomagnetic storm had hit the earth causing the earth's population of humans to die off until only your small group was left. The storm had left the world into a state of Eternal Winter and you and your group have just survived a plane crash and regained consciousness as it was nearing 12:00 PM. Your groups goal is to Survive for 50 days by setting up a base, exploring, scavenging, hunting, building, farming, and whatever else you deem a requirement to survive. The only things alongside your group in this Canadian wilderness are Rabbits, Crows, Wolves, Deer, and the occasional Bear.

----To get Soil for Farming you must dig out snow in order to get to it.

----To get clean water to drink you must Melt snow and then Boil the Water.

----Each building only has enough power to have 1 thing that require's electricity on. (Be sure to choose wisely, whether it be Gas, a Water Heater, a House Heater, or Lights.)

----Only when those with the Building and Engineering skills work together or possess both will they be able to build a Wind generator to allow 2 things that allow electricity to be on at once.

----Your character has 5 stats to manage, Cold, Hunger, Thirst, Fatigue, and Calories. The IC will tell you how you manage these stats alongside how Condition works.

----Each character starts out with 100% Condition.

----Bears and Wolves are your only enemies here, unless one of you turns on the others.

----When searching buildings/anything in general, the GM will tell you what you got and what it's condition is.

----Everything you've searched respawns with new items every 2 days you aren't near it.

----Make sure to Choose a Base as soon as you can so you have somewhere to retreat to and store things at alongside taking care of yourself/eachother.

----When your character carries more objects than their supposed to (Inventory is 16/15 for example with a default character), they become Encumbered and move half as fast as normal when walking/running.

----Be sure to manage your stats so your character doesn't die.

  • Name: Trisha Jacobs
    Race:Human, Caucasian
    Appearance:
    Appearance (open)
    [​IMG]
    She wears the default clothes as well as having a pair of Headphones with an Ipod in her pockets. She also stands at 5'4".
    Sexuality: Bisexual
    Age: 24 years old
    Skills: Tailoring and Herbology
    Traits: Insomniac and Night Vision
    Occupation before Storm hit: A DJ and Semi-Famous Photographer.

    Personality: Originally before the storm hit a lot of people considered her vary vain and just plain not fun when she wasn't being a DJ, and overly fun when she was being a DJ. However this all changed once the storm hit and she was one of the last survivors. She now tries to make everything seem fun to distract away from the fact that their the last one's alive on this planet and that they might all die if they don't work together. If she has to she will get serious in order to make everyone calm down so that no-one gets hurt or worsens their current Situation.

    Past: Before the storm hit Trisha spent most of her time in Russia just hanging out, taking pictures for contracts and being a DJ for large groups of people, which lead to an increase in her wealth and popularity while she then used said wealth to travel the world and do worldwide contracts and parties. However after the storm hit she spent every moment of it to spend time with her family in her home town of Colorado before they too succumbed to the cold harshness of death. Once this happened she managed to procure a plane ticket to fly to Canada which inevitably crashed, leading her to now help this small group of theirs to survive out here in the wilderness.

  • Can more skills and traits be gained over time?
     
  • Yea, if you work towards it, like getting someone else to teach it to you that has that trait or just practicing it yourself. Those without the trait just start at a 50% chance to fail at it.

    For traits it's more of an acquired thing, so for example, to get insomniac your character has to not sleep for 7 in game days to gain it but their character will be extremely sluggish and it will be hard for them to do anything while fatigued.
     
  • What exactly is in the basic engineer kit?
     
  • FYA


    Name: Alex Wood
    Race: human. Caucasian.
    Appearance: 6'2", average build. Short brown hair, brown eyes. Wears the default clothes except he has a baseball cap along with the wool hat. and has a cellphone with a dead battery in his pocket.
    Sexuality: Straight
    Age: 16
    Skills: Hunting and Engineer.
    Traits: hoarder and companion
    Occupation before Storm hit: Student, but worked a part time job at a grocery store.
    Personality: level headed, quick thinker. He is sentimental but does not like to show it.
    Past: Before the storm he was a carefree teenager living in Houston Texas. He enjoyed the outdoors, history and building things. After the storm hit there was a complete breakdown of authority in the area his family lived. They attempted to escape to Canada on a plane, with a connection in Colorado. But the flight met a grim end and his family died in the crash, but he lived. And his pet dog Cisco, a Lab-shepherd mix, survived too.

  • Be sure to add the Hoarder things and the Gatherers pouch to your characters inventory, other than that, accepted ^^
     
  • Added such and also added the 6 seeds
     
  • Wow 26 things in your characters inventory out of 15 XD, so much stuffs. Anyway, i'm gonna make the IC soon, and i'll be using screenshots that i take in the game to help you guys visualize everything so that it's easier ^^.
     
  • Wait, didn't you say the perk things didn't count towards the 15/15 thing

    I changed it to 17/15 and the 6 seeds I don't think should be heavy enough to make me encumbered unless you want them too I can take two off
