.setting. The world was once on the cusp of revolution anew, the year was around 2035; then for some reason... it all vanished. Light blinded the world for nearly a decade, and when the light faded a new world awaited those who survived the harsh temperatures and new evolutionary changes our ecosystem undertook during the Light. Only a mere 3% of the human population survived, the rest were mutated into scorched remnants of their former selves we now lovingly call Husks, don't be fooled they are dangerous demonic like beings that have morphic abilities that can put your worse nightmares to shame. Wild and plant life evolved to hunt, and well. With very little life left, even the most docile of creatures can be deadly within seconds. Humans had some rather interesting changes to them as well, new and dangerous people walk the earth now pulling the theory of our evolutionary roots into question. But their are so few left it doesn't really matter, everyone has their own problems their own government, their own law, we're all just trying to survive on what's left of our history, in a world of sand that goes on for miles, some cities remain in tact, some completely destroyed from unknown causes, there are forests, but you have to be a damn fool to enter them unless your a Special. Water and food is scarce. This is the world we live in, can you survive? ... -It has been nearly five hundred years since the light faded. I have left this setting vastily open for a reason I would like to see alot of creativity and original thoughts. The majority of the plot will be in Lysha City which has built up a nice little population of 357 and has a naruto like culture (but not exactly sorta village city idea ^.^) I want you the rpers and myself included to come up with all the different creatures and things that can be in this time period thing of it as we're building our own genra of high fantasy rp just about anything goes. -Lysha City- population: 357 : Weather : Normally dry-hot with brisk winds reaching temperatures around 110 during the day and -35 at night. Don't go outdoors without the proper clothing. Lysha was built out of what could have been New York City, Japan, or maybe even Sidney, but it was a rather large city and the citizens of lysha haven't had to do much to make the city their own now.Electricity is a thing of the past, so is running water pretty much there are public baths much like japanese culture of our history. And EVERYTHING is Solar Powered.(Have fun with this) Building off and within the structures that still stood Lysha now has a Capital, the big building in the center, where the Guardian (think mayor/general LOL) and his three advisor's go about their normal buisness. Then outside the capital building the city is set up with the rich in higher reaches and the poor in lower reaches, but honestly everyone is about the same wealth class, its all who you know now-a-days rather. There is a school for the 'Specials' anyone with abilities is required and enforced to join by marshal law. --Warning. The city is not a safe place, Husks still roam our world, and even though the city is surrounded by a gigantic desert the husks still lurk in some dark crevices of the unexplored city and surrounding terrain. What are Husks? They were humans but now they look like their name states; dried slouching slow moving husks of what could have been human ? if you stretch their limbs and torso's to around 9' tall proportions. Also their bodies can stretch and tear pulling together into new deadly forms (like sharpened points instead of arms, their skull can be dismantled and forward to bite and drag its prey in. pretty grodie! but demonic like yep hellish even LOL) Sorta like zombies they shamble around aimlessly towards sound they have little to no eye sight, possibly something that happened during the Light. But once they find their prey their speed can increase by ten fold depnding on how long it's been since they last ate. If it's been a while... you're screwed. If they have eaten they are much much slower. -The Academy- :description coming soon: Okay On to Quick Rules. -1 character only please. -Fill out the Prof. Skelie and first post/intro together for entrance. -be respectful of not only the rules but each other -We will do post order why entrance into the thread. If you do not respond within a day you may be skipped for one turn but not a second for an aditional day in which I will message you then decide whether or not to continue. I am the beginning of every turn ^.^ - Please no mary janes or joe smiths, I let the plot very open 'cause I like creativity and characters that don't normally fit into your normal every day rp. Makes them FUN ^.^ But this is in no way approving godmoding or powerplaying by any means. All powers have an equal cost to use, BALANCE YOUR ABILITIES! -HAVE FUN! -If your having problems with really understand this rp/or how to make a charrie, check out my prof skellie i will make it little more enlightening. -If you have a transforming character they must retain 75% of their body mass meaning they can double their size or half their size but nothing to big or to small please. I want it to still a little realistic here. So if your character can turn into a cat for instance the smallest they would get is a cat the size of a dog large to medium in size. --sidenote: More rules may be added later ^.^ THREAD STATUS whats this?

Wanna join Us? Fill out our skellie after you've read all the important stuff. And thank you for your consideration. -Prof. Skellie- Charrie Name: what are they called? do they have a regular name or maybe a nick name what do you wanna be known as in lysha. Age: no one can be immortal life spans still only 100 if your damn lucky. Specials tend to live shorter lives, due to powers or the fact that they seem to be drawn to fighting are still unknown factors. Appearence: If you use art please credit original artist I myself am an artist and will be very very ugly to you if you steal someones art ...so ... so gr! Personality: Who is your character really? Peal them like an onion layer by layer how do they seem to others, what are their secrets, what are their flaws. Class: Special? Citizen(regular person) ? Soldier (their police/military) ? Guardian (NPC BY ANDI.LYN ONLY) ? S-Citizen (special citizen) ? Teacher (at the academy of course)? Mechanics (keep the city alive with their inventions) ? Or Something Else (A husk? or a newly evolved wild critter oooo could do all sorts of other charries with this.? Abilities: Remember no power laying/godmoding balance your abilities out but can be pretty much anything, and rules on transforming. Weapons: If any, guns are cool, but gun powder is a little hard to come by, solar powered weapons can be thought up here. History: Doesn't have to be much just a little something about their past. What did they experience growing up here in Lyshia? I wanna see creativity here. ^.~ Rp Example: I want to see what you can do. I will not have a word count here on WOS HOWEVER! This does NOT in ANY way allow one-liners I can't stand them. And honestly if you cannot post at least a couple short paragraphs of descriptive, and grammatically correct writing your doing your own roleplaying injustice.
