In this roleplay the world is currently experiencing what's known as the "Y Crisis", a dramatic deterioration of the Y Chromosome. For reasons unknown it's causing the male birth rate to decrease so drastically that only one out of every twenty births leads to a male child on average (you can say to change this number if it seems too high or too low to cause the crisis in the roleplay). Scientists have been unable to do anything to fix it, and in fact have only made matters worse. Most of the men who undergo experiments to artificially replicate or alter their Y Chromosome die, and in all recorded cases their chromosomes are left unusable after they deteriorate at a substantially increased pace. A lot of people still have hope for the Y Chromosome, but for now all they can do is preserve what's left until they can figure out a more permanent solution before the human race becomes extinct. Nobody knows if the Y Chromosome will remain stable now or deteriorate even faster, so obviously the stakes are high about figuring out what to do. Artificial insemination doesn't produce men at a higher ratethen average and is incredibly expensive, human cloning of women would work but would cause some issues, and inducing parthenogenesis (being able to give birth without men) is technologically a long shot for humans. Can the Y Chromosome still be saved? Are there any other alternatives? The future of the human race is looking bleaker by the minute, and things have only just gotten started.<o:p> </o:p> Sounds cool so far? Well, would you guys like to help me come up with ideas on where to take if from here using this concept? I have my own ideas, but I think it would be best to get ideas from other people as well to see what you guys would like to have happen here. One possible scenario is a World War over men as the"resources". Some of the countries couldn't exist (at least as aworld power) without improving their male/female ratio, which means kidnapping from other countries, but obviously these countries and their allies don't like this so the war begins. Another plot could center around the GCA, the Genetic Conservation Agency in the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">United States</st1:country-region></st1:place> which was formed to settle all issues regarding the Y Crisis, acting as male bodyguards and stuff. Theycan deal with terrorists, including the one's responsible for the Crisis in the first place. It might even be cool if such a group (The GCA) actually turned out to be the bad guys.<o:p> </o:p>About the cause of the Y Crisis, I'd really like some cool ideas on how you think something like this could have happened. Also, feel free to give any other ideas that you might have regarding anything at all about this roleplay, or ask me any questions that you might have about it. Thanks.
