Welcome to the year 4032! Life as you know it has adapted and evolved yet have stayed the same. Long ago our race abandoned our home world, having ruined it with pollution and overpopulation. Yet the destruction of our home was the kick in the ass our people needed. Since then our Governments had come together in an unprecedented way. They let their old feuds go and instead came together for the betterment of mankind. They created a single government the Empire of the Old World. Together the human raced has spread out across the stars. Many advances in technology and engineering making Faster Then Light travel or FTL Possible. Many Tech has been preserved and adapted to fit this new society. While Laser weapons exist and can be manufactured, most society still hold onto their kinetic ancestors. You will usually find Laser weapons on space craft and other military vehicles. Unfortunately you as the player come to this story in dark times. 2 months ago the whispering had started. No one quite knows how it is possible. But every night As you drift to sleep voices haunt your most sacred memories and dreams. The Whispering as it is universally called brought with it a new age of bloodshed. Conflict has sparked across the galaxys as this dark force plays at the fears of humans everywhere. Entire planets have gone dark Millions committing suicide. Millions more committing horrific crimes as they tried to forget. You are part of a Research Vessel, the SS Annabelle. Whether a scientist of the research lab Juniper or a dedicated mechanic or pilot of the ship itself, you have been contracted by the highest of government officials to go to the star system known as Ever After what many believe the whispering began. You are to discover what is causing this phenomenon and stop it. Not every moment will be filled with hair raising terror and action. Political lines and allegiances have been pushed to the breaking point. This is just as much a story of an empire falling as a horror story. Maybe you will find love as you race against time to save a universe. Maybe you will die cold and alone with no hope to hold on to. The choice is up to you. Now with Introductions out of the way lets get to the Important stuff! This thread is where we will be posting all our OOC conversation and characters.

This rp is originally created for me and two friends, while I am having sign ups you should know that I am a very picky person when it comes to the people I rp with.
