Drizzt Do'urden Posted September 22, 2009 Share Posted September 22, 2009 [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]In the year 2050 a nuclear war broke out. Every country that had them launched a warhead almost simultaneously. It seemed the end of the world was upon us...little did we know that we would've been better for it.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]As the warheads closed towards their targets, a bright light shown upon the world and a sound of crackiling lighting and crashing thunder shook the world by its core. Everywarhead that was in the sky was vaporized by an unheard of blast of electrical energy.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]All countries at once began monitoring an anomoly in the middle of the atlantic ocean, along the planets equator. A great mountain grew forth out of the earth, a mountain so large it eclipsed Mt. Everest by miles. It's peak finally stopping somewhere inside a haze of clouds, that gravitated around the mountain as if by some unseen force.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]Days, weeks, even months went by as the people of the different countries sent probes, unmaned vehicles, and fianlly soldiers and scientists to explain the anamoly; none of which were ever seen or heard from again.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]As a full year passed, and most of the world forgot about the mountain. Went back to their lives as they were before the war, nobody seemed to care that there was an energy radiating off the mountainside, an ancient energy that couldn't be detected by conventional methods.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]Finally an omnious image filled the sky, a bearded figure straight out of mythology covered the sky across the globe. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]"Mortals, bow down to your returning King. For over a millenia I have watched you wage wars, destroy my planet, and kill one another in the name of non-existent gods. You have viewed yourselves as masters of this planet for long enough. Bow down in joy and fear as your God King returns, all love and fear ZEUS!" As if a repeat of a year ago the sky flashed white with lightning, over and over again. Each time something was taken from the humans...[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]First thing that went were all the humans modern weapons. Guns, missiles, bombs, anything the gods perceieved as a threat to them was gone leaving only weapons and hunting tools from their time.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]Secondally the gods pulled toe continents back to their original form, everything united as one continent surrounded by a seemingly endless ocean of blue. United at the base of Mt. Olympus[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]Lastly the gods stripped the humans of all vehicles, including aircraft and sea faring vessels.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]For over a century now the gods have controlled everything. All television and radio broadcasts were now shortwave and harwired, since satellites were shot out of the sky... For over a century, their was no hope.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]Finally a single man, some said he was the son of a god, others just a crazy lunatic, snuck onto Mt. Olympus and stole the most important thing the gods possessed...Ambrosia.[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]Ambrosia was the food of the god, but when a mortal ingested it they became a demi-god. Given powers similar to that of gods, but on a much smaller scale. This man spread the ambrosia around, a single serving to certain tribes he handpicked. [/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][COLOR=blue]The last hope for humanity's freedom hinged on the right people being choosen for god-hood. The right people to kill the gods...[/COLOR][/SIZE] [SIZE=1][/SIZE] [COLOR=black]Time to whip on the gods themselves. As you've guessed we will be playing the choosen, X number of people choosen for the task of becoming immortal, well immortal in age. We can still be killed by conventional means, its just harder.[/COLOR] Time for sign-ups, be advised this is going to be a short RP. I'm thinking maybe a couple months if the posts are pretty consistent. I'd like to get this started next week sometime, so I'll probably get it rolling as soon as we have 4-5 people. Name: Age: Sex: Appearance: (Feel free to be as creative as you want, its no telling what the ambrosia will do to a person.) Weapons: Though the gods destroyed everthing, mankind has triumphed. Different tribes have been able to come up with some weapons such as guns, small explosives. Feel free to melee it up or go for distance, just try and keep it one or the other. If you are a marksman you probably won't be real good with close combat and vice versa. Powers: The powers of the gods are sort've construde throughout mythology, of course there are the norms (Zeus' lightning, Hades power over the undead) so feel free to deviate, but remember we are not gods. All of us will have super-human strength and speed so don't bother with that, but otherwise everythings games. Personality: Bio: (How'd you get selected, what'd you do before you were picked) Writing Snipet: Let us get inside your characters head, let us see his/her personality and demeanor with this. Doesn't have to be combat, infact I prefer it not be. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
