    • The Start

      The world was dying. When the first plagues hit, one million died. When the second wave hit, half of the remaining population crumbled. Civilization had begun to disintegrate and the law began to mean nothing; robberies were frequent, murders even more common. It wasn't safe to take a stroll through town any longer. Famine and thirst went on a rampage, food and liquids usually what was fought over. Wars were fought over nothing; struggles were fought for everything. The human race was on the brink of extinction. People were dying left and right, with no cure in sight, no stability, no hope.

      Religious folk flocked to church to pray for a miracle, rebellious folk fled to gangs to beg for a second chance. And the rest? They bolted their doors and cowered inside to wait for the end, the end of the nightmare that was life, the end that would put them out of their misery.

      But it didn't end. It paused.

      For two whole minutes, time ceased to exist. Clocks froze mid-tick, bullets stopped in their path, the world came to a stand still. A soft electrical crackled had filled the air, and those who had been standing outside would have sworn that a bright light had zoomed across the sky in a blinding flash.

      And then, it was over.

      That Was Nineteen Years Ago...

      The plagues have finally faded. The governments have lost control to the gangs, who control their own territories with iron fists. Chaos no longer reigns in the streets, and crime no longer rules the law, but food is still short and water still spread thin.

      The government wants it's country back. During the early days, they had tried their best to keep order, but with their people dropping like flies, their control had fallen apart. Now they want it back. However, with gangs being the dominant authority, and nothing but their now-worthless titles, the once great US government is stuck. That is, until a mysterious entity calling itself the 'Savior', gives them the resources they need to pick themselves up again, more powerful than ever. Along, with a bit of information that might be of use...

      The Problem

      Just as the world is on the right track, and when it seems like civilization just might be on the road to recovery, another plague breaks out, this one even bigger and badder than the first two. They call it, the Dread.

      What makes treating it so difficult is the fact that, it manifests differently in almost every other patient, with symptoms that are truly devasting and deadly. The only thing they have in common, is what the disease is named after. The disease attacks the emotion center of the brain, instilling uncharacteristic episodes of intense terror and dread.

      On the brink of yet another devastating epidemic, scientists of this new modern world are scrambling to understand such a volatile disease. But what makes it so difficult, is that it's constantly mutating. And that there isn't just one type of the Dread. There's twelve. One type, makes the victim feel as if they can't breathe, until slowly they die of asphyxiation. Another paralyzes from the feet up, creeping towards the upper body till it finally reaches the chest rendering the lungs incapable.

      At first, it was impossible to tell which type would manifest in who. Perhaps you caught the Dread from someone who's skin is slowly peeling off? Yet you, burn up with an unstoppable fever. It's the case all over the board. The scientists searched for a similarity anywhere, between the types of Dread, and they came up with one. They were astounded.

      The date of birth.

      How your symptoms manifest depends on the month you were born, on you zodiac sign.

      Turns out, science just proved astrology.

      The Plot

      Astrology wasn't the only discovery made. They found those who are immune.

      The day of the Stand Still, a whole generation of children were affected... somehow. Many people don't realize that there isn't just one star sign in your astrology reading, but actually ten. You can have up to ten zodiac signs that make up who you are - depending on what you believe. But the chances of you being born on exactly the right day, and exactly the right time, to have all of your signs line up, is 1 out of a million. Yet in this generation of children, almost all were born at the perfect moment.

      Again, depending on what you believe, some might say that in that retrospect, these children are the personification of those zodiac signs.

      And they're not just immune either. They have powers.

      Now scientists everywhere are racing to get their hands on as many of these immune as they can, some with good intentions, some, not so much. But two institutes are at the lead; Eythix Industries and Nox Laboratories. Can you guess which one has the government pulling the strings? Nox Labs have already proven their inhumane methods with these kids, sending them scattered and scared. Eythix offers a safe haven, a place where safe testing can be done - with consent.

      Eythix has put twelve of these special kids - one from each sign - into a an experimental program to find out more about them, and to find a cure the world so desperately needs. But this team, this team of scientists, of doctors, of special kids, aren't going to have it easy. Riots have started. The technology that filters the air and keeps those who aren't immune safe, aren't invincible. Mysteries arise; what exactly is the Dread? How was it created? Was is released? Who is the Savior? Which side is it on? What does it really want? The Savior is gaining a reputation, and a following as it goes public. And the Dread is continuing to evolve to mutate, making it slippery to hold onto.

      So, who will you be in a world that's dying? What's your zodiac sign?

    • History


      Then
      When the plague first hit, the human race was scared. People hid, people prayed, and people turned to violence. So of course, all the delinquents out there went on their joy rides. Stores were raided, riots were started, everything was vandalized. Not to mention the gang wars, with the increase in new members. The government all but lost control. The military had been too stretched thin; officers were dying left and right, every other soldier was deserting. They were too stretched thin, and so they retreated. Retracted into their little hidey-hole. For a year, most streets were deserted, most sane people cowering in their homes in hopes of escaping the riots and robberies and murders that were on a rampage across the country. There was no order, and no law. Until the gangs finally took charge, each taking control of a fraction of the country.
      Now
      After nearly nineteen years, not much has been rebuilt or fixed, but it's been relatively peaceful, with only the occasional gang war. Some parts of the cities, of civilization are still deserted. The plague wiped out too much of the population, for people to take up as much space as they used to. As said, gangs have set up territories that they control, with people falling under their protection - for a fee of course. The economy pretty much collapsed with the government, so paper money means nothing now. It's only trade and bartering that gets you the things you need. Food is rationed and traded for. Electricity is scarce. Some places may have bits, and pieces, some may have none at all. The area from which our roleplay resides, has enough electricity for phones - but the wall connected ones only. There are three gangs who also reside in this area; the Scorpions, the White Dragons, and the Daughters of Bastet. The Scorpion gang are made up primarily of men - rare for a woman to join their mix. They're very big on fitness, and muscles, and a test must be passed to get in. Any age above sixteen is eligible for the test. The White Dragons are very focused on drugs, and they're known for fantastical (and highly addictive) hallucinogenic drugs. The only reason they're still in power of their territory is their monopoly on the drug trade. The possession and usage of drugs is legal in White Dragon territory, and is quite a social thing. Lastly, the Daughters of Bastet are a very tight-nit group. No males are allowed to become a member, and they're very strict on their rules when it comes to their citizens. Curfews are dead-set, and if you are caught in the possession of non-medical-use-drugs the punishment is death. While they might be strict, they are able to keep impeccable order.
      The First Plague
      The first plague, seemed to be a mutation of the Bubonic plague, or otherwise known as the Black Death. Research had suggested that the plague had been lying dormant, but no one though that it would mutate - or come back with such force. The symptoms included swollen lymph nodes, high fever, chills, headache, and weakness - which were all original symptoms of the plague. But the mutation included more severe weakness, as well as an increased contagiousness. It was passed through the air - simply standing in the same room as an infected person, ran the risk of becoming infected yourself. The most prominent thing it was known for, however, was the tears of black. The disease triggered a reaction in the tear ducts, causing the victims to emit black liquid from their eyes - in the form of tears. Once contracted, those infected usually did not last more than a couple of days.
      The 'Savior'
      No one knows much about him, other than he calls himself the 'Savior' and that he appears to be male. He also seems to be siding himself with the government and has a plan for the world, a 'new society'.


      The Labs


      Description
      [​IMG]Eythix Industries was founded by Dr. Jennifer Faust, a brilliant scientist with a heart of gold. She created her laboratories for the sole purpose of helping others, surrounding herself with a team of brilliant minds. Eythix has no specialty in science, but rather dabbles in all aspects. When the epidemic first hit, Eythix was just opening it's doors and there was a dramatic dip in it's employees. To protect herself and her colleagues, Faust sealed them off from the outside world and together they got to work on trying to find a cure. However, they were unable to find even a clue, but the disease faded. Ever since the outbreak of the Dread, they have been working harder than ever, though their team has been reduced to horribly low numbers. Dr. Faust chose five/six people for the job, as well as twelve physicians. Dr. Faust built her labs under the water because she believed it would provide creativity to her workers - but when the epidemic hit, it did more than that, it provided protection and privacy. Dr. Faust has a knack for finding the most brilliant and eccentric minds. Most of her employees are young, but extremely intelligent - many of her peers used to question her on her hiring choices, though she stuck with it. They do not have that much man-power for they're security, though they have a vast set of technological fail-safes set in place as well as a couple of trusty guards. Eythix is built in the water, however, so security isn't that much of a problem.
      Eythix Layout

      View attachment 96581
      (Sorry for my horrible computer-handwriting xD)
      Eythix Industries has a circular structure, with three major wings. Originally, they were all labs, but due to a fire and the new stresses on civilization, that's had to change.

      The first wing, closest to the entrance, is what has stayed the labs, with modifications. This wing has three levels, each with their own purpose. The first holds the welcome desk basically. It's set up with a front desk that's hardly ever used any more, with a couple of monitors that can view certain security cameras. The second, holds physical tests, such as treadmills, and exercise equipment - so that vitals can be measure. Lastly, the third holds a complex obstacle course, built specifically so it could adjust to the powers of the person being tested. It also holds a small training room - basically a shooting range for abilities.

      The second wing, contains the most levels; twenty to be exact. Seven levels extend above ground/water level and thirteen below. These are the living quarters for all who currently live at Eythix. Each level contains six decent-sized living quarters, pairs of them sharing a bathroom. They circle around the edge and in the center is a lounge containing a couple of couches and a TV. The first level above ground in the second wing is a full entertainment and lounge center, featuring couches and chairs, two televisions, a pool table and a small kitchen for snacks. The second level is reserved for the team of scientists working overall for a cure. The third and fourth levels above ground, are reserved for the personal physicians of the Immune. The fifth and sixth are reserved for the twelve Immune who have agreed to testing. The seventh, is a floor especially made as a living space for Dr. Faust. She had lived at Eythix even before the plagues had occurred, and before the second wing had been converted to living spaces. The lower thirteen levels are left to the Immune who have not agree to testing, were too late to volunteer, or were not physically/ mentally capable for such things. Dr. Faust, however, is working to create a better safe haven for them, off-site. It's both for the personal reason of not having them under foot, and to better keep them safe, for the target Eythix has become. Those thirteen levels, do have two other entertainment centers.

      The third wing's upper levels were completely destroyed by a fire, quite recently. One of the scientists caught the Dread, the type of which that sent him into a rampage. He tried to burn the place to the ground. It contains seven levels, two of which were the subjects of the fire. The first level holds the infirmary and anything else that would require medical attention. The second holds the 'computer labs', which basically has a room with a handful of computers. It is connected to a data base, and what is left of the internet - which is still, somewhat running, and only accessible by high-up companies (like Eythix) and the government. The third holds the chemical labs, where testing for a cure is being made. The third holds the genetic testing, where the DNA of the Immune is observed and investigated. The fourth level holds the security center, computers that can observe the cameras all over the place. The fifth is the information center for all of the labs basically, containing all the hard-drives and computer storage. It's the mainframe for Eythix.

      Lastly, the aquatics center is attached to the first above-ground floor of the second wing. The walkway is a tube basically, made of strong see-through glass so the lake can be viewed. The aquatics center is circular shaped, like the rest of the architecture at Eythix. The walls are lined with fish tanks, since originally it had been meant to test such fish. When the first plague broke out, Faust thought her company needed a bright light in such a dark time, as well as a way to exercise, so she had a pool made.
      Nox Laboratories
      [​IMG]Dr. Andrew Burks founded Nox Laboratories with the same purpose as Dr. Faust did with Eythix Industries. However, his views for his company changed after his unexpected death, and Nox was taken over by Dr. Jonathon Verde. Dr. Verde quickly changed the labs for the worse, and worked closely with the government, being their lackie. Any employees of his that opposed him, were immediately replaced for ones that wouldn't take back. Some got jobs at Eythix Industries instead. Once the Dread started, and the 'Savior' contacted them, they have gotten particularly worse. The things that go on behind closed doors are... horrible. And an Immune that goes in... well, let's just say that they don't come back out. The layout is unknown by many and not much is known about it's history either.


      The Dread


      Description
      Dread is spread through bodily fluids, but is really only contagious in the first set of stages. But no types are contagious just through touch - unless you sneezed on your hand or something - nor is it air born. It's characterized by the episodes of unexplained and random terror and dread. These episodes can happen at random, though they happen most frequently and the most intense as the Dread comes closer to running it's course. They have a similarity to a panic attack, except more fear involved. Dizziness, breathlessness, and a racing heart are typical as the episode starts. They can last anywhere from a couple of minutes to an hour, sometimes more, as the victim comes close to dying. The symptoms can last from a week to a month before the victim dies.
      Capricorn
      Those who have caught the Dread, and are born in the Capricorn sun sign, their bones fail. Slowly their bones crumble until eventually nothing is supporting their organs and everything the body shuts down. The first stage can start with joint pain and excessive bruising, as well as easily broken bones. It can then progress to hyper-breakable bones, to the point where simply stubbing a toe can fracture their shin, or banging a hip on the corner of a table can shatter the bone. The bones continue to get weaker till just standing runs the risk of shattering every leg bone. Then just body weight causes the collapse of bones.
      Aquarius
      Aquarian's start to bleed excessively. It usually begins with occasional nose bleeds, and excessive bruising - just a simple bump can cause a huge, dark purple bruise. Soon, the blood has trouble clotting. A papercut might continue to bleed for up to an hour, and larger wounds might take even longer. Nose bleeds can continue for longer than normal, and occur more and more frequently. Then they start bleeding from the ears, and when they cry, it's red with blood. And even though it's gross - they might begin to urinate blood, no matter the gender. Eventually, internal bleeding might occur, if they haven't bled out already. Blood may begin to fill their lungs, causing them to cough it up as wells and constantly spit it out and/or vomit it. Because of the constant loss of blood, fatigue, is common, as well as light-headedness and fainting when the victim is physically active. They typically grow pale.
      Pisces
      Pisces' grow delusional, the Dread blurs the line between reality and dreamscape. It usually starts with little things, maybe a rainbow sparkle in the corner of their vision, or a butterfly that no one else sees. They might mix things up, be a bit forgetful. It might escalate to seeing full-bodied people - like in those movies, where the character sees someone they lost in a crowd, and they're there one minute and gone the next. Their dreams become extremely vivid, real. It escalates to full-on conversations with people that aren't there, and then on to full-on hallucinations. They might see themselves in another place, like a waking dream. They usually continuously confuse their dreams for reality and have trouble telling when they are dreaming and when they are awake. The worst part though, is that these hallucinations are not scary, they're pleasant, happy. The only time they may be scary is if a Pisces happens to have an episode of terror during a hallucination. Then the hallucination turns violent and frightening. If the victim has lived for long enough - without having jumped off a roof believing they could fly or otherwise accidentally killing themselves, which has not yet been recorded of happening - they eventually fall asleep, and never wake up.
      Aries
      When those that are born in the Aries sun sign contract the Dread, it attacks their mind on a different level than a Pisces. It acts almost like dementia. At first it starts with night terrors and sleep paralysis. The fear of sleeping due to these night terrors can lead to insomnia. Again, like Pisces, it can start with forgetting little things - like losing keys and forgetting names. It can lead to completely forgetting whole conversations, and otherwise short-term memory loss. Whole days can go missing, while the night terrors persist. They might being to forget people, and long term memories. Confusion is common, mixing up time. hey can mix up people - especially if they look alike. (Any other symptoms of dementia of alzheimers or related disease that have to do with confusion/memory loss/mixing up can be included as long as it gets progressively worse as the disease continues. In reality, these types of symptoms would manifest in people differently.) Eventually, Aries will forget how to do basic things, like walk, talk, etc. Until they choke on their own food, or forget how to beat their heart. It degrades their whole mind.
      Taurus
      A Taurus has a similar manifestation of the disease, to a Aries, but with a different outcome. It reduces them to the thoughts of a child. The Dread first attacks the emotions, leaving the Taurus with progressively child-like emotions and outbursts. Unlike other types, A Taurus doesn't have much other symptoms beyond that. Slowly they forget their years in consecutive order - believing they are whatever age they've forgotten prior too. Eventually, a 60 year old man will think himself a 5 year old. They take up the mannerisms of the age they believe themselves at, with the same attachments and thought process. eventually they forget all the way up to infanthood, back when they relied on their mother to breathe. So, like an Aries, they forget how to do basic necessities and eventually die.
      Gemini
      A person born in the Gemini sun sign, when they've contracted the Dread, they're lungs slowly deteriorate. It can start with breathlessness when physically exerted, and then on to breathlessness at all hours. It feels almost like cement is filling their lungs. Breathing soon becomes tiring and hard - to be more comfortable, an oxygen tank may be required, and may also prolong the disease. Eventually, a Gemini can no longer breathe at all, and they asphyxiate. This type is generally quicker-acting than the other eleven and those with this type typically don't last long. It may be hard to speak during the later stages.
      Cancer
      Cancerians fade away. Not in the literal sense. This type can technically manifest in two different ways; some feel hungry, and some do not. But, never the less, they can no longer digest food. It begins with feeling horrible stomach cramps after eating, then progressing to feeling so sick that upchucking is common. And then finally, they can no longer even put food in their mouth or be near it without being sick. They drastically loose weight of course, and no longer obtain the nutrients they need from food. A Cancerian's life may be prolonged by the injection of nutrients, but even then, the body will eventually begin rejecting these as well. Eventually they just fade away, they starve to death.
      Leo
      Leo's burn up with an unstoppable fever. Normal medication may put the fever on hold for a bit, but it does not stop it. The temperature in their body continues to increase until eventually it kills their cells and they die. Such a high fever can cause them to have hallucinations or to become confused. Fatigue is also common if they are not resting.
      Virgo
      Those who have caught the Dread, and are of the Virgo sun sign, slowly fall apart. They're skin peels, and their muscles fall off. It's quite a disgusting sight. It starts with mild rashes, in random places of the body. They grow in irritability and in size, and in number. They may bleed and puss when scratched at. The muscles may feel weak at times and suddenly fail. Soon the skin gets so deteriorated by the rashes, it begins to peel off. It's bloody, and gross. Once the skin starts to fall off, the muscles follow. It does not have to happen all at once, but can happen in different spots of the body at different times. It's a horribly painful process, and painkillers are a big help. They eventually just fall apart in a bloody mess if they do not die before then.
      Libra
      Librian's loose control of their senses. Taste is the first to go. It usually just spazzes; things might taste like other things, or things they might have love to eat, now taste like saw dust. They're tastebuds just go wild, until the finally dull and die. Smell goes next. Like taste, the smell sensors go haywire before going out. And then sight goes. They usually begin to have trouble seeing things far away, and it gets worse and worse, and then a darkness begins to creep around the edges until it's finally lights out for their eyes. And then hearing. It slowly fades - they might hear random things that others don't. Touch is the last to go, quickly disappearing until they're completely dead to their surroundings. If they haven't already killed themselves, like Pisces, they just fade away in their sleep, like their senses.
      Scorpio
      Scorpio's begin to have insane mood swings. It starts small and then progressively gets worse, until they can't control their emotions at all. The slightest thing can send them into a rage or into a horrible depression. Eventually, their body can't handle it any more. Just an episode of terror the Dread causes, sends their body into overload and causes them to have a stroke - should they not have one already. Anger is the common outburst for them.
      Sagittarius
      Sagittarian's slowly become paralyzed, as it creeps up from their toes. Usually, it starts with them just stumbling frequently. Of course, the toes, then the feet go numb. It starts with one side, first. A cane is needed to walk. Usually by the time the paralysis reaches the knee of one leg, it starts on the other. It slows a bit on the one side, for the other to catch up almost. By this time, the person is reduced to a wheelchair. It creeps all the way up till it reaches the lungs. Without medical aide, they asphyxiate, though if they have access to a machine that can breathe for them, they might be able to survive until it reaches their heart. Again, they may be able to use machinery to pump their heart for them, and live a bit longer. But once it reaches the brain, it's lights out. It's not painful at all, just a weird feeling as your body goes numb.


      The Zodiacs


      Description
      Because I'm half-brain dead at the moment, and extremely exhausted, I'm just gonna put a helpful little link here for a better view on all things Zodiac. (Check out the 'Zodiac 101' section on the lower right side. It's quite reliable.) This site will give you a better description of each of the Zodiac's personality, and it can also explain some of the terms listed below. I probably will put a legit description of things later that will be really creative and stuff.

      Now, characters that are immune have personalities and traits that are nearly identical to the astrological predictions, unlike ... normal people. There are ten planets in astrological readings, and the Immune have the same sign for all of them, while normally, you could have ten different signs for your planets - which is more likely to happen. The Immune are just that - supposedly immune to the Dread. When they catch the Dread, they may only go through the first stages of the Dread (which can last anywhere from a couple of hours to a week, depending on the strength of the immune system) before they start to get better. It has also been proven, that these Immune are gifted with abilities beyond normal human capabilities. These powers are connected to their Zodiac element, Zodiac traits, or Zodiac reading in some way.

    • General- All Iwaku rules apply of course!

      - MY WORD IS LAW! Jk, it's a bit more of a democracy. But still. Don't contradict me unless I'm totally wrong which can totally happen. xD

      - I also have a Co-GM, @DarkiusHeavenstein. You should listen to her as well ;)

      - I don't really have a requirement on length, but dude, don't post a sentence and think that's alright. A paragraph should be the goal, but this is not something I'll be strict about.

      - You're characters can be assholes, but you cannot. Be polite please! And don't argue over trivial things. We're all here for fun, yeah?

      - All genders, ethnicities, and sexualities are welcome!


      Characters- No Mary/Gary Sues, or Godmodders! I withhold the right to turn down characters if they're expressively bad (in this... aspect, not in general xD)

      - Make them unique! Try not to copy the person before you. ;) And if you have an idea for a background you want to brush by me, or need help with the character background, don't be afraid to PM me! This world is huge, so there are lots of possibilities.

      - If you have any ideas in general, share them! It doesn't have to be over PM either. Seriously, these ideas can be about anything really, I'm all ears. I'll be pretty accepting of them - unless they contradict something I already have planned >:)

      - I know I've probably said this a million times, but I'll say it again; The Immunes have personalities and attributes scarily similar to their Zodiac sign. There might be some differences (due to environmental factors, everyone grows up in different situations) but they should be small, and few, if at all. Any other characters should not have personalities as alike to their Zodiac sign. Of course, you can have them have quite a few similar attributes, but not too many. If that happens, we'll have all the same characters!

      - WARNING: Don't grow so attached and territorial over these characters, that you won't let them get hurt! Hell, there's a probable chance they might even die (with a dramatic death scene of course xD). This roleplay world, is highly volatile and extreme. There's no guarantee of your character's safety, and there may or may not be a breech of the air filtration at some point. If you genuinely have a problem with it though, and really want to stay in this roleplay, PM me and I'll see what I can do. Keep in mind though, this does not mean it's a free-for-all to make it all about your character and have them on the brink of death all the frickin' time. There's only so many times I will save you/let you be saved. (Remember, I have control over the lead scientist, who can spout some science bullshit to say you're going to die and stay dead xD)

      - Another Zodiac-thing; Only the Immune are allowed to have powers, and again, it has to relate in some way to their sign. It also cannot go against their element, without due explanation. (Ex. Aquarius cannot control fire, since their element is air, but they could possibly control water, since their sign is considered the 'water bearer' for some odd reason.)

      - No restrictions on character amounts, or what kinds of characters you take, other than keeping it under eight or nine!


      Eythix Rules- Curfew is midnight. You must not be wandering the building after such hours.

      - Work hours are not strict, unless you are constantly being lazy. Then they'll be strict.

      - Saturdays & Sundays are off, however the Immune may have extra days off if their physician prescribes them due rest.

      - NO experiments may be conducted on the Immune without their physician present.

      - The Immune must have constant check-ups and contact with their physician, for their own well-being.

      - Should an Immune at any time be deemed unsuitable for an experiment, by their physician, at any time, the experiment will be stopped immediately no matter the progress.

      - Only a licensed scientist may perform experiments on any of the Immune.

      - An Immune can drop out of the testing at any given time should they feel overwhelmed, apprehensive or upset. No person can hold them back from doing so.

      - All outside doors must stay locked and shut, and any outside trips must be approved of before hand.

      - Immunes may not use their powers on one another, or on any of the staff, as a course of aggression, or misgivings.


      Sorry for the long paragraphs! xD And I swear, as long as you don't have repeated offenses, you're not a complete asshole, and you actually follow directions (that sounds really cheesy and teacher-y xD), you will not piss me off! I don't bite that much anyway ;)​

  3. May I... reserve Pisces?
     
  4. I have Aries already sorry.
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  5. Please may I have Scorpio instead? I'll have to work around it somehow.
     
  6. I made up my mind and I would like to pick up Virgo if that is possible. I will start working on my character asap
     
  7. Evening! This rp has piqued my interest, if possible I'd like to claim Leo. I'm at work right now but I will finish my profile tomorrow the latest.
     
  8. GM already has Leo
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  9. No worries Sagittarius then.
     
  10. Can I be a scientist and physician
     
  11. Could I reserve cancer?
    I'm sorry if it was already taken and I just didn't notice??
     
  12. Dropping a Aquarius and Physician, if I may ^^

  13. Can I reserve Taurus?
     
  14. Thanks for the link love! ;) Though I have already provided a more detailed one. And I'll reserve Scorpio for you.

    Got'cha!

    Got you as well ;)

    Reserved ;)

    You're good ;)

    Got you as well ;)

    Absolutely!


    To All ~ I'm really, really, really sorry for not being here!! >.< I had to leave unexpectedly then had work first thing this morning! I will get to work on fixing the BB coding right away, so you can actually view the rest of what I had written! Also, I just want to remind everyone that there can only be six female Immune and six male Immune just to be even, but since I totally forgot to put that up, I won't be harsh about it if it completely messes people up! One or two more of one gender is fine, I just want it in place so we don't get all male Immune or all female! Another thing - you may reserve powers as well! Powers are not something that we should have too many of the same of, but again, if that messes anybody up regarding their characters, I will not be too strict. As long as it works differently? Anyways, I'm kind of rambling xD I'll get at least the template of my characters up soon.

  15. Could I reserve Libra? Or Pisces?
     
  16. OH! And also, I just want to inform everyone of this edit, but Physicians and Scientists do not have to be 19-20, their age range is changed to 18-30! That was a typo!

    I think it's free, so, yes ;)

    Whoops! I forgot you ;) You're good to go!
     
    • Thank Thank x 1
  17. YES IT IS FIXED!!! * Dances in a little circle * I fixed the overview at least! xD Now I'm going to go get people reserved! >.< Again, I apologize for all the inconveniences! And also for double-posting xD

  18. No worries lady, just for the record I will be tossing up a male immune everyone. I'm heading to work soon but I will get the profile done tonight.
