Have you ever wondered what it would be like, that if all of a sudden all the lights were to go out at once, all the electricity to cease working, all of our guns to quit firing??? Has it ever crossed your mind what the major impact on like it would be if technology was to stop, in an instance, and us be hurled back into the Dark Ages. Think of the implications. Planes fall from the sky, Fires ar unable to be fought, a mile stretch of land becomes a dangerous guantlet amongst the bandaits and diseases.

People attempt to rise to power, using ruthless tactics in the world of anarchy, and gangs rise to the top, killing those who are considered peaceful. Life relies on Farming, and being bale to sustain oneself, no matter the costs. Even if it takes to fight.

This is the world S.M Stirling depicted in his, newer, yet enlightening novel, of self descovery, survival, and new beginnings. A somewhat prophetic warning to us about our reliance in Technology. In this RP, you will take the role of a character, during the last minutes of the Modern World, and RP your position as you were thrown unwillingly into the deadly grasps, and Rp your goals and methodsof survival in the ruthless world.

You will need a character sheet filled out.

Personal Skills:

Possible Goals:

The only rules are be realistic, "The Change" must be kept at the equivilant ofOregon Time Zone at 6:15 Pm March 17th, 1998, Have Fun, and attempt to react and communicate with other players and their budding clans and kingdoms around you. When I post the first post, you are free to begin posting, till then just post your Character Sheets.

Name: James Thatcher

Age: 17

Appearance: Tall, around 6'5. But not as strong as you would think. People at school joke as if he is a god, but that is just his personality. He often times wears black shirt and long khaki shorts. Short hair, sometimes spiked up with gel.

Past Occupation: School

Personal Skills: He can weild any weapon, but only has nearly mastered the sword. He practiced almost everyday. But there is always room for improvement.

Possible Goals: He was an artist. He could draw nearly anything. He loves art altogether. He would sit outside and draw the trees and the lake that he lived close to. He wants to keep art in the future, but he highly doubts he will be able to. So basically, he wants to survive.

I think his point was that no modern weapons. not to change his story or anything but perhaps the goverment was able to confiscate all bullets, guns, gunpowder, tasers, and other things like that. Now we are left with swords, sticks, and fists of fury!

Maybe that answers your question and I hope it doesnt offend you that I did this Animus.

09/17/2006 7:50 AM

No you are right Dyinstar. However this is based off a book where this anomaly happened, sending a boat to island in the past during the dakr ages,, which is also impossible. SOmehow, unexplainably the laws of nature chemistry and physics have slightly changed. That is the mysterious thing baout what happened. SO the Government didn't confiscate them, infact the government most likely would slowly deteriorate because of this crisis, that is for us to decide.

Nothing except I need A State you are either in or heading to.

09/18/2006 1:42 PM


09/18/2006 1:55 PM

You are in for a shit load of action my firend lot of violence in the streets. Unless you are heaidng for the state andn ot the actual city.

09/18/2006 6:06 PM

nobody else in NorCal?

09/18/2006 6:24 PM

Do we get to use magic or just primitive weapons?

09/18/2006 6:53 PM

No magic just old weapons. this is to be a highly realistic story, the only non realistic thing is the change itself. ANd I dont believe so but even if their was you can still use the state.

09/18/2006 7:23 PM

So is that it? Our characters just need to find a good source of food water and shelter? Now that i think of it it doesnt sound as interesting as i first thought...

Can we add, uhh, like zombies or killer animals? if not i guess im out. Sorry.

09/18/2006 7:58 PM

Listen, you have to think outside teh box. The land will be plagued with fanatics recreating feudal governments in teh city to take over the land and destroy any who dont submit to their control. THeir will be nests of Eaters or Cannables all over the Bandit ridden high ways. Deadly Animals will be a huge factor in surviving. And even another threat are those damn nazi's who take this as a sign to return to slavery and kill all the other races. No zombies, or magic but these threats.

09/19/2006 6:49 PM

well .... no affence but it sounds a little to serious ya know what i mean ?

09/20/2006 8:13 AM

And that is the idea. a realistic RP, instead of the normal fantasy ideas.

09/20/2006 9:37 AM

I like it. I just havn't gotten around to posting. I've been a bit sick and tired so I really havn't had time to think of an opening post.

09/20/2006 1:02 PM

Take your time man... This is just supposed to be for fun, and not drain you.

09/20/2006 3:59 PM

I know I'm jsut so happy to be able to RP again...

09/20/2006 8:15 PM

yeah it is almost like a lil relaxation for me at the end of everyday.
