The City. A huge mass of population covering a huge portion of America. It plays home to anywhere between 1 and 3 billion people, though officials gave up counting an eternity ago. The City has no government, not any more. Nor does it have any police or military. It is a writhing beast, consuming but never producing. Here, people are free to come and go as they please. Disputes are settled internally, and everything is run by the people. There is still an official money system, but it's almost as hard to find any money as it is to find people who still accept it. Generally speaking it is a city of thieves. People take what they need and if they find something of their's taken, they go and take something else to replace it. In a way, even though time has progressed, civilisation has decayed. However there is something to be said for this underworld. Enemies are temporary and friendships last a lifetime, even though you can change your entire identity with just a bit of persuasion. And here, everyone is poor. The ones who become rich become poor just as quickly. The ones who never earn anything will always be poor. There is only one requirement for success in The City - be very very good at what you do. After all, you've got 1-3 billion competitors. Really, with this I just wanted to try a slice-of-life style thing but in a setting that I've never encountered before. Feel free to make as many characters as you like, but make sure you read all the other apps first. It's surprising how often people make characters whose name is already being used. Success in this world is determined mainly by having allies, so make sure you do some interactions too. I'd prefer if you used an anime image, but I'm really not bothered as long as it isn't a real life photo. Even use a description if you want. Name: Age: Gender: Appearance: See how short that app form is? That's because every character is automatically accepted, and I'm willing to trust you won't be OP or make a boring character. If you do, I'll probably hunt you down and PM you to tell you to tone it down a bit. If you still remain OP, then expect Mr OP to accidentally run into a gang controlled area and mysteriously disappear. Just throw in those 4 lines at the beginning of your first post and get going! I'll copy it into the OOC thread whenever I get the chance.
