[ Full until further notice ] "So you want to know my secret? You should know that many have tried to uncover it and failed. But then again no one has ever come as close as you... Until that moment it is a pleasure to have you onboard the Celestial Express." - the Conductor. Welcome aboard the Celestial Express, the one and only vintage Victorian train that runs through all of time. We have a small crew consisting of a human conductor and an artificial intelligence that operates the android staff. The train has a number of carriages offering state of the art facilities, such as a living quarter, dining complex, library archive, bar and luxury lounge suite. Upon ['abduction' is crossed out] boarding, passengers receive mandatory 'processing' which involves temporary episodic memory loss. Don't worry, this is completely harmless, you should regain most of your memories by the end of the journey. Additionally, two random people will be selected from a population to join the crew as 'special guests'. Unlike normal passengers they are only onboard for a day or two and retain all their memories. We encourage you to learn as much about their lives as possible! Now, before you go running off to explore the express you need to know a few things. It has come to our attention recently that we aren't exactly a normal train. As such you are likely to participate in miraculous adventures and experience strange phenomenas. If this happens you must follow the Conductor's instructions and be prepared to take your own precautionary measures. It should be noted that a passenger should never come in contact with anything outside the train! If you have any queries please voice it to either the Conductor or the AI via radio. Finally, we ask that you familiarise yourself with the train's rules... 1. Bios are required, that includes a past even though your character may not remember it. You cannot be a special guest. 2. In the beginning every passenger will wake up in their rooms in the living quarter. This applies to passengers that join later on. 3. All starting passengers are unable to recall anything. You may regain your memory progressively through triggers and flashbacks. You are only entitled to one of these daily. 4. All skills and knowledge possessed before the train remains with you. 5. You can go outside the train but never exit it. 6. Be realistic/no meta. Hint: carefully think about what your character knows before deciding on an action. 7. Respect your fellow passengers and rpers. We want a fun express experience for everyone. OOC Notes: Hello, thanks for showing some interest in this rp and being patient enough to read everything. Here are some ideas that I thought needed expanding on. Also if you're interested in becoming an Admin DM me. - As a passenger you will participate in both strange and spectacular adventures. These range from high tech (in a conspiracy sort of way) to vaguely mystical. You can make them up or join an event (open to everyone). - Special guests are two NPCs that can be used for guidance, specific skills, memory triggers or simply rp purposes. - The environment is largely styled after Victorian era architecture with hints of sci-fi and steampunk. Feel free to expand the environment and give the train some character. - The AI manifests itself in all of the old radios and android staff. You can interact with the AI via radio (which are located in every room) but it will generally sound lifeless and robotic, always giving the most efficient answer possible. Occasionally it will randomly ask you a philosophical or personal question. If you don't answer the AI will simply ask again later until you do.
Welcome to The Cove. The remanence of the once thriving human kind have made a stronghold. This is the only truly safe place left in the world, survivors if anymore exist are welcome, be prepared for scans and medical checks upon entry. This towering fortress triple reinforced steel walls reaching 40ft high and the gates are just as foreboding. Sharpened spikes, they will pierce the skin at a mere touch surround the city like a moat. 50cal mounted machine guns stationed around the walls at intervals apart from one another, to stop any flying Marrow Melds attacking from above. Sewage is filtered out through the bottom of the pit, various an annexes and junctions of small tunnels, twist and coil out allowing the filth to disperse and not linger. The Cove is merely the nickname give to the sanctuary they constructed, an irony statement as it was actually quite expansive to accommodate for any new populous. Rickety and poorly crafted building mainly fill the streets, Hansen Mars (Me) and a few select few others who run the town have been here the longest and are working to better the conditions for the general residence. But they reside in more sophisticated homes situated in the centre of Remedy (City's actual name) in the safest location. Crime was not a problem as of yet but Hansen lacked any sort of system to police people and safety was main priority. Supply runs were made regularly made out of the city to collect goods such as: food, water, scrap, rare metals, weapons... Etc. So excursion teams were built for these missions, not expecting people to willingly volunteer this was requested upon people. As it was dangerous as the genetically mutated once humans now mainly inhabited the planet. The desolate wastes now home to a new breed of zombie the scarce food for the monstrous dead had lead to cannibalism of each other. Creating a more ravenous, smarter and more aggressive strain of creature we call the 'Marrow Melds' they are faster, stronger and a lot more reckless than the average. This problem does not just occur within human victims all animals have been effected by this. Normally they are double the size sometimes even Marrow Melds cannibalise and again double in size. It is a never ending viscous cycle. They are harder to kill and sometimes the weaker follow them and act as bait or distractions, it seems the more they cannibalise the smarter they become like they gain intelligence. Rules: 1) No abusive behaviour to participants OC. 2) This is real life setting, you want to be some super human character with mad skills go join an anime chat base or fantasy! 3) Being an Advanced Lit chat I expect minimum 10 lines per post and response. 4) Just a bio is needed with basic info: Age, Gender, Height, Weight, Weapons, Sexuality, appearance... etc. Detail can be as extensive as you want. 5) Dirty = DM but romance is encouraged as repopulation of the human race is kind of an end goal. 6) Brutal, explicit, gory scenes are to be expected and the quality will be high. So if you have a weak constitution or a heart condition this chat is not recommended. Any complaints you will be just be kicked as YOU have been WARNED!!! 7) MOST IMPORTANT RULE, enjoy yourself and have fun. Lose yourself in the magic of your own writing and others. Make friends and even your own family. :p Now create your bio and just enjoy, the carnage, love, pain with the rest of the survivors as we struggle to rebuild our society and the human race itself.
