(from Interest threads)
This will be a high action, somewhat fast paced (as fast as FFRPs are concerned lol) Rp set on a planet called Thera, in a parallel dimension, that is the mirror of our Earth . Now this doesn't mean left is right and right is left but it does mean that there are mirror versions of ourselves on Earth. I want to shy away from the "Everything is opposite" archetype and keep it on the level of more important things. Government has advanced very slowly and science has advanced far beyond modern technology. The end result is a near futuristic setting similar to the world of The 5th Element with a pseudo-feudal governmental structure (royalty of all kinds from all walks of history reside side by side). Players may play characters from all walks of life, royalty included. One of the only limits here is your imagination. Players will define their own tech and I expect everything you think up of a technological nature to submitted to me before posting it in play. I think that's it save for the basic info of the world...
The 5 Empires:
Armoria (Canada and the Americas)- Imperial hopefuls abound in this war-torn stone colony. Armoria has been reduced to poor stone pits, long since emptied of their valuables by extensive strip mining. Those that live here make their homes in the tunnels on the outskirts of the stone "warpits" while battles are constantly being fought in the open pits and valleys of the old mines. Home to "Quarry XIII" the second largest penal colony in existence. Armorians are a mixed breed of cultures.
Emperor: 'Sir' Kyle Matterhart- Blood thirsty ruler who leads with an iron fist
Polaria (Alaska & Anarctica)- The largest of the empires and a military powerhouse. Polaria is an ice colony utilizing the highest grade biofields and an advanced system of matter reconstruction to keep water and food depletion to a mere 13 Ml/Mg a day. Polarians have telltale signs of their origin. The amount of quantum energies needed to fuel the colony causes a skin disorder that causes them to be as white as the snow of their lands.
Emperor: Pax Novus- A woman of unnatural beauty and a fierce combatant with great amounts of intelligence at her disposal.
Eorina (Europe and Africa)- Peaceful refuge for political revolutionaries and center of trade for the world. Eorina is a nature colony maintained inside the largest bioshpere in all creation. An advanced system of filtration units keeps the air and water at an exact 98.52% purity and prevents all airborne disease and chemicals from entering the atmosphere. Known to abuse their dimplomatic immunity, Eorans shelter all who come their way.
Emperor: Maximillon Zechs- Rich, arrogant, handsome...nuff said
Orientia (Asia)- Home of the Doji, Bayushi, Ali, Sigat and Borchizikoff empires. These five families split Orentia evenly amongst themselves. Orentia is home to a myriad of colonies and peoples. The people of Orentia prefer to live without biosheilds or spheres.
Emperors: Kai Doji and Masame Bayushi- feudal lords in the styles of ancient China and Japan respectively(...Cyber asians). Hazarra Ali- Arabic warlord and conqueror. Adolpho Sigat- Technological genious ruler of the most advanced kindom in the world. Rausso Borchizikoff- Tyrranical leader and master trader.
Kingdoms:0 (Orentia is separated into 5 empires)
Wanaka (Australia)- Home of the 'free world' and Penal colony 155. Penal colony 155 is the largest in existence. Aside from the colony, Wanaka is untouched by the hand of technology. It is also off limits to all empires inhabitants. If one can make it here, they are free...
That's all I have so far...I'll post more later.

So tempting to post perfect redhead call Lulu as soon as you said 5th element.
Name: Cho Seng
Kingdom: Adolpho Sigat
Occupation: Shield maiden of Kai Chan (Diplomat)
Weapon: Auto lock handgun, 64 mag but still compact (Personal shield like Dune? Oh and as the thing says and Auto lock aims for you, just point and click)
Description: Short cut black hair that falls at her cheeks, she wears what ever she has too to match with the Diplomats choice, always carries her gun at he side but not always in plain view. She's 5"6' and a slim but muscular build, her best feature has to be her deep blue eyes from her grandmother.
History: Picked from the training house at 17 to accompany Kai she left her family 6 years before that she was forced to take up the training, She was trained in anything one would need to know to protect a member of the higher classes at any cost. She hates Kai but knows what the cost of letting him die would be and she doesn't want to forfeit her family.
03/04/2007 10:13 PM
Kingdom: Adolpho Sigat
Occupation: (newly appointed) Assistant Caretaker of Royal animals.
Weapon: Poisonious darts/needles. The poison isn't always lethal, sometimes it paraylzes temporirly or puts the victime to sleep. Usually adminstered through a blow gun of some sort.
Around her right wrist is a slim silver 'bracelet' that is completly plain but for a medium sized black 'stone' that seems a bit too deep to be real. As it's, in fact, a multidimensional carrier that holds her knife, that's not a huge surprise. She is pyscho protective of it; it cost her a pretty penny and was incredibly hard to even find.
Description: Layered multicolored hair (deep shades of Red, purple, blue, even a few strands of white. Barring the white, her hair looks more or less black in dull lights) that hangs to her shoulder blades. Incredibly pale skin (not Polarian like, more like Earth's Welsh.) that is stretched over a delicate bone structure and a decent muscle tone. Her body itself is muscular, but with a thin layer of padding over most of it, giving her an almost overly feminine appearance. Many people mistake that feminine 'appeal' to mean she is a weak individual, never looking below the surface.
The fact her height is only about 5'8, doesn't in help her appearance of ferocity. If one was to look for something fierce about her, it would be her eyes; a dark thunderstrom of colors, dark blue, dark grey, looking as if at any minute lightning would shoot through them and burn anyone in her way. Her facial structure is rather exotic, a bit too sharp to be traditionally pretty, a contradiction to her 'soft' build.
On her back she has a myriad of scars, over which she has black tribal tattoos. The tattoos themselves have no meaning, but they look almost angry, they're purpose seeming to trace the scars in a poor attempt to hide them and only seem enhance them.
Her appearance is normally pretty simple: hair nearly always in a braid, clothes fairly tight and revealing, but quite durable, and if it's cold, multi-layered. She goes for durability and comfort as opposed to style, but when she does go for style...well, it's one all her own. She might not have a great deal of outfits, but she has a great deal of ways to mix and match and completly change said outfits.
History: Kurai was raised in the lower parts of the city, by her single father. Her father had gone a bit insane due to the fact that her birth caused her mother's death. His insanity caused her early years to be spent as a personal hell, living through his abuse; physical and mental.
She ran away from her father as soon as she was old enough to get away and take care of herself, around 8 or 9. Needless to say, those years were hardly better than her childhood. All the same, she grew up, got stronger, and actually managed to get with a few other people kind of like her and make a chance at surviving.
After her 14th birthday she found herself with a place to live, people to share her life with, and still an outsider. Despite everything, she just couldn't seem to fit in with those she considered her friends. With more than abit of reluctance, she managed to find herself a decent job; working as an animal care taker for the house of the Emperor Kai. Over the past few years, she had been working her way up, going from lowely caretaker to assistant caretaker of royal animals. Her quick rise to 'status' had many of the other workers looking down on her, accusing her of sleeping her way to the posistion. She didn't care, she had no time for socializing or caring what people thought about her, too busy saving her money in her near obsessive quest to earn enough to leave her homeland and travelling to Eorina, or even better, Wanaka.

Luna, nice tech...well made character, also You need to include a 'blade' (long rectangular sword with a vibrating cell inside the blade).
Setsuna, as detailed as ever, you can up your tech a "wee" bit ;) but perfect otherwise. I'll post some more details later.
03/05/2007 3:11 PM
Thankies ^^ Any tips on how to upgrade the tech? Liek...laser knife that is retractable so it can be worn as a pendant? I honestly don't know how high tech we're wanting to go here. (though, in all honesty, i'm not positive that the laser knife thing is all that high tech, you assume there are mini lasers now, and making an even smaller one and decorating it wouldn't be hard.)
For the needle things...No idea. I just like the idea of poison, something that can be thrown.
03/05/2007 3:26 PM
OK, well, there are no such things as laser blades (although laser guns are in the early rifle stages. Weapons are still primarily in the ballistics era...(Think of the movies Ultraviolet and Equilibrium)
03/05/2007 4:42 PM
Equipment: Various medical and surgical supplies, Reviver Coil (see History)
Description: Black hair, Hispanic skin, white Medic robes
History: Romirez was born in some sort of pseudo-Spanish kingdom. He is a genius, and is famous for inventing the Reviver Coil, which can bring recently dead people back to life. He currently works for the Eorina Medi-Corps. (Or something like that.)
Just tell me if the Reviver Coil is too high-tech for this game.
03/05/2007 5:44 PM
Perfectly fine, a person cannot have been dead for a period of longer than 24 hours though ok?
04/11/2007 11:04 PM
*thread takes a gasping breath* Ok, I really want to revive this one, so lets get some posts eh?
Does that mean there's room for another?
04/12/2007 5:04 PM
AGH! Ultraviolet...>< That movie was at once so horribly bad and hilariously funny that my poor little brain hurt. ^^;
Okay..so...Basically a snappy lookin little pistol with...laserness...(I so know what I'm talking about...^^;) Oh! Could I have one of those...thigns that UltraV had, those wristiscuffs that allowed her swords (or in my case knife) to be sucked into it...
I think that was what exsisted at least...Oo Dont remember very well
04/12/2007 7:59 PM
PLENTY of room ;) , and Setsuna...yes you may...lol
Hey Rei, would the skin disorder of the Polarians affect their hair?
04/15/2007 9:36 PM
it is possible...
04/15/2007 9:42 PM
Not to sound rude...but when is this starting? ^^; It sounds like uber fun.
04/15/2007 9:47 PM
tommorrow night...sorry for the wait...;)
04/15/2007 10:11 PM
I was going to make this a female character, but there were already two girls, so I figured I'd even it up.
Occupation: Researcher, with a dual specialty in techno-body upgrades and weapons design. He is head of the 'Human Weapons Unit' research team, and indeed is the reason this project was created.
Weapon: He has a pistol, a hand-held rail gun, and several daggers that he keeps on him almost all the time, as required by his job (being a top secret governmental agent requires him to have personal protection at all times). Since he implanted his chip, he has taken an interest in eccentric martial arts weapons, and has two rings utilizing zero-space technology that allow him to call forth two spinning spikes at any time, a specialized whip-chain, and a 2-inch long carbon-titanium alloy stick that can extend to various lengths (2-inches, 1 foot, 3 1/2 feet, and 6 feet).
Description: Oddly handsome, with his white skin and ice-blue eyes. His hair is long, usually kept in a pony-tail, and has been permanently dyed blue to match his eyes, rather than the normal white/gray of most polarians. He is 5'7" and lean, yet he is 290 pounds due to the density of his muscles and bones.
History: Was originally a part of a team that was designing chips to be implanted into the human brain for instant knowledge, sort of as a 'memory card' that would be able to hold vast amounts of information. The goal was to eliminate the need to 'learn' in school, thereby freeing people from numerous years of schooling, for they would have all the information they needed. They were unable to connect the chip to the brain correctly, however, because no information could be consciously recalled from the chip.
While initially being labelled as a failure, Colin continued to research and found a way for the information to be ready subconsciously. While this was no good for its original purpose, Colin found a different use. With the chip, one could easily recall places on the map, or retrace one's step, but going with your 'gut instinct.' Also, on a more practical matter, the chip that he implanted in himself had information of all styles of martial arts known around the world. He thus became a master combatant, because he was a master of all forms of martial arts. He demonstrated the effectiveness of the chip when he challenged Empress Pax Novus's personal bodyguard, the best fighter in the empire, to a duel to the death and won, although he didn't kill the bodyguard.
Since then, he has been experimenting and directing under project HWU, although nothing from their lab has been implemented due to a lack of knowledge of the chronic affects of the experiments.
He has conducted several experiments upon himself, resulting in almost supernatural quickness, reflexes, strength, and immune system, by increasing the density of his bones and muscles, by enhancing the conductivity of his nervous system, and by inventing an anti-virus and anti-bacteria producer via nanotechnology.
He is currently working on integrating zero-space technology into their vision of the Human Weapon Unit.
Is that ok?
04/17/2007 4:57 PM
perfect, once again, sorry for the delays I'll do my best to get the initial post up soon...if you guys want to post your first posts then feel free.
04/17/2007 10:32 PM
Hello, since you said the thread starts today does that mean there is no room for more?
04/18/2007 12:50 AM
Plenty of room buddy, submit a sheet and hop in ;)
Yeah, Rei STILL hasn't started it...
04/18/2007 3:49 PM
Post, my little monkeys, POST!
04/18/2007 8:43 PM
Keep in mind that I am not Rei, and thus what I say is basically useless and should be taken as if a wall was talking to you, except without the cool factor of it being a wall speaking...
Anyways...My one, and only, suggestion (for the day at least) is that, perhaps, you give your character a name. I mean, if you want, I'm all for just calling him nameless boyo! ^^
The character's name is Alex. It is in the history, just not in the 'Name:' section.
I have a couple of things to point out, though. First, you said:
Weapon: He keeps varius metals with him to be able to use with his magnetism and create weapons out of different materials. He usually improvises with whatever he has.
but failed to mention anything else about magnetism anywhere else in the character sheet.
Second, there seem to be quite a few parallels between your character and mine. I don't know what to say about it, other than to point it out and hope you can get some kind of inference out of it.
04/19/2007 3:35 PM
Ok, one thing, no powers...period...no magnetism or psychics or w/e...only tech. otherwise, he's ok. Have to concur with Max, but he's your char and I want you be happy RPing my thread.
Hey rei, I've been trying to think of a way to start my first post, but nothing is coming to me. What do you want in it?
I also have a couple questions: Are there colonies on other planets, or are they all on earth? If so, then why aren't they up there? If no, what does the interplanetary council thing do? Should we have any knowledge of Earth, or just Thera?
I guess I'm just a little confused right now.
04/19/2007 4:26 PM
Max...I want YOU to decide on the starting post
colonies off thera are on the moon and the equivalent of Mars (Anduil) But they are for the empire's rulers and their chief consuls.
dimensional parrallels are unknown...
04/19/2007 11:28 PM
I decided to re-do my charecter. If its ok please tell me when I can start posting.
[Edited by rage_man on Friday, April 20, 2007 5:11 PM]
04/20/2007 4:10 PM
I totally redid my charecter now.
Name: Alexander Keith (or Alex for short)
Occupation: Agent, works for the military. Is currently keeping guard at research facilities.
Weapon: A laser pistol, a titanium shield, and night vision goggles. Rarely uses ninja stars which he keeps on a normal-looking belt.
Description: Messy dyed, black hair, bright blue eyes, tall in stature; 6'2", some build. usually wears a laser proof armour.
History: Alex was born in Polaria and raised in Polaria. usually known for his combat skills, he was trained to be an agent for 8 years and has recently started to go on special missions.
I'm new to this so please tell me if I should correct anything.
Hehe...cool, I think I might establish a history with your character (basically they know each other from Colin walking in the building or whatever).
Where would Alex be stationed? At the main gate, in a building...?
Just let me know, and if you don't mind I'll post a little something involving you.
04/20/2007 7:21 PM
Sure I wouldn't mind if you involved me in it, but I'm still waiting for Darkkinghtrei to approve my charecter.
04/21/2007 4:00 PM
Would the same thing that is apparently happening in Polaria happen in Adolpho Sigat, or should I change my backstory a bit and have it so that my chara had already been transferred to that area, or something like that?
I just kind of played off of that opening post about stuff crashing and what-not...
I honestly had no idea what I was doing.
04/22/2007 11:08 PM
Sorry Rage, thought I approved you already. To answer Setsuna's question...probably so...
04/27/2007 8:19 PM
Kingdom:Doesn't stay anywhere long.
Occupation:None to speak of at the moment. He's been known to do odd jobs but apparently at one time he had worked as a simple farmhand.
Weapon: No real weapons to speak of as far as conventional arms. He has the ability to both generate cancerous tumours in his body at will and in the bodies of those he makes skin to skin contact with. He has, in his countless years of life, slowly developed a sort of martial art in which he utilizes his ability to rapidly induce the growth of cancerous tumours in his enemies on contact to maximize fighting efficiency. Note that he also has the ability to purge the body of these tumours or further stimulate their growth with skin on skin contact.
Description:He stumbles about, seemingly drunk to the casual observer, his long white hair matted and knotted atop his drooping head. Although many eyewitness accounts throughout history have described this man, he still only appears to be about the age of 18 to 20. These sightings have been told to have started about a thousand years ago. He is slim and his flesh is taught about his lean muscles and bones. He stands at about 5 and a half feet. He usually appears quite normal, despite his drunken and crazed personality, however at times when he is exhibiting extreme emotion or when he simply wishes to, he will look as though he is horribly diseased. His flesh will become a pale yellow and white and pus oozing cysts and tumours will emerge and disapear from his body as though he bubbled with some horrid ailment. He usually wears nothing but a pair of trousers, mainly because he cares little for his appearance or the state of his body. He is hairless except for the top of his head where his chalk white hair grows, and he has a sort of bone-like paleness to his skin. His face is gaunt and slightly feminine, however a certain masculinity persists in his features, and a strange pair of icy blue eyes, that are somewhat boyish and harbour a child-like innocence.
History:No one knows where he came from or where his family is or if he even has one. His strange abilities have kept most would-be inquisitors away out of sheer disgust and fear. He speaks in a strange, haunting whisper that portrays no accent or slang of anykind, almost as though he has shut the rest of the world from his tongue's learning of the english language. He has been known to show a certain affinity for children and exhibits great effort to protect them. He has wandered the earth for ages it would seem but never has he spoke of his travels to anyone. His desire to close the rift is shrouded in mystery and it seems nothing will get in the way of his goal of its closing.
Looking for approval.

Kirea Lynn Ereath
Gender - female
Age - 26
Kingdom - Eorina
Occupation - political revolutionary.
Weapons - her tongue, a small retractable knife she attatches to her belt for dangerous situations, and a personal shielding device
Description - Kirea is a tall, lithe woman with chocolate brown hair that falls to her waist and fair skin. Her eyes are a deep hazel, sometimes with green and gold flecks.
She has an unobtrusive look, attractive in its natural sophistication and simplicity. She is most often seen wearing the robes of a diplomat, long forest green robes that hug her curves and dip fashionably low in the front. Though any man caught looking might find himself surprised to find himself on the ground within a few seconds.
History - She was born in southern Eorina (where Italy would be on Earth) and grew up dancing with the nobles and flirting with the pageboys of her people. Her family was
widely respected for their intellect and learning, a peaceful and intelligent family of four, two parents and a son and daughter. The younger of the two children, Kirea found herself spoiled with learning, with no ending of books to read and projects to tinker with. Her brother however, was always the one inventing things, and Kirea the social butterfly. On her twentieth birthday, Kirea went to study in Amoria, among educators and historians of the past. It wasn't really her cup of tea, until she met a man others called "loony" and "time-washed" (a term coined, some where between time traveler and brain washed.) He filled her head with revolutionary political ideas of democracy and political parties where the people would choose, and no one was left behind to sludge through the mud. These ideals took flight in her intelligent young mind, and soon she was thinking like a woman who should be several centuries ahead. When she returned home and began telling her family and people of her new ideas, she was met with scorn, disdain and even hatred for the new-age themes she claimed. After nearly causing a revolt among the people her own age that followed her with an almost cult like obsession, she was accused of treason banished from her home country, and she fled to the cities looking for someone, anyone who might understand her. Though she still is a country girl at heart, the patriotic feelings and political obsessions tht now grip her heart she cannot turn from, and she urgently seeks to bring these new ideals to the general public, ready to spark the revolutionary fire that is several decades late.
Now she is desperately trying to find someone to pitch her ideas too, one who would be willing to take a chance on a new way of life. At this point, she doesn't care about the people or monarchs she might anger.
Well there is that.
05/02/2007 8:53 PM
That's pretty good I hope darknightrei will come online and accept you.
