(This just a current intro i have for my RP idea)

It is the year 2010, and the new Megatrix Nuclear Power Plant has been finished being built. The red tape is cut and the largest power plant in the world was supplying power to millions of people worldwide.

5:56 P.M, MEGATRIX BUILDING

CEO John Freeman is writing on an index card when the phone on his desk suddenly rings. John picks up the reciever.

Caller: Hey, Johnny!

CEO: Hello, who is this?

Caller: Johnny, this your boss! You should reconize my voice by now. Are you having hearing problems or something?

CEO: (sighs) No boss, i'm fine.

Boss: I'm calling to congratulate you on the that great opening you had today. I'm happy to see that you can finally do something right when i'm gone!

CEO: Don't worry boss! Everything is fine.

Boss: You did check all of the power systems before the factory started running, didn't you? I don't want any extreme meltdowns happening. Anything can happen with this powerhouse we've got running.

CEO: Yes sir, i personally checked all of them.

Boss: Good! I have to go. Talk to you later.

John put the phone down. He had forgotten to check the power systems, but he wasn't worried. He was sure the guards had done that.

7:23 P.M, MEGATRIX POWER PLANT
The guard woke up to a dizzy matrix of flashing lights and loud noises. The last thing he remembered was standing next to the power hub and suddenly feeling a large pain in the back of his head. The ground had come whooshing at him and then everything went black. He reorientated himself and looked at the hub. All seven of the master alarms were blinking and a ear busting siren was wailing in the background. All was not good.

That night, the worst catastrophe ever in the history of mankind happened. A full scale meltdown happened in the core of the Megatrix Power Plant. The nuclear fusion was so powerful, it melted it's way into the core of the earth. Nothing survived the disaster. Entire cities melted, countries disenagrated, and continents evaporated. The only surviving humans were in the rocket, Acheivement, on their way to Mars.

First off, welcome to the forums! :) Always great to see a new face around.

Second, though, have you ever RPed before? It might be helpful to poke around the Training Grounds first, before you start your own RP. Read some of the other threads already running to get an idea for how it works, and don't forget to check out the FFRP guide. (mostly 'cause it's -very- entertaining ;))

However, you seem to have an interesting idea here, though, and could be a lot of fun.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask away! :D

Thanks. I haven't looked at the training grounds yet. I have played RP's before, but i've never hosted one.

very interesting, rather then a scattered group of humans trying to survive in the barren wasteland of a near-destroyed earth, it is a group of humans who have more or less "colonized" mars (albeit it wasnt exactly an option not to). rather then having to worry about crazy gangs or psycho ass mutants out in the wastelands, the most pressing problems i assume would be trying to make mars habitable, rather then bullets people need air or food and instead of just being a small community of survivors, everyone left could actually remain organized and civilized like in an ordinary government....most unique among post-apocalyptic settings, everyone is more or less screwed but not to the point where they cant improve their conditions.

definitely something of interest, i think it could succeed provided enough people were interested.

I was mabye thinking of having the Rp start before the rocket luanches, with a backstory of the happenings at the power plant. How does that sound?

im not sure how that would work out but it would certainly make the rp easier, afterall if you just had to suddenly evacuate earth and watch as it is destroyed. you might as well know WHY.

would also allow for people to "prepare" for the evacuation, taking whatever necesary materials they can and whatnot

The people on Acheivement are not evacuees, they are on a mission to Mars. The meltdown happened too fast for a rocket to be readied, the only people left are the ones already on their way to the red planet. (It takes Nasa a long time to ready a shuttle or rocket)
