Absolute Zero (OOC) You may now post!

Post by ViperaUnion on Fri Aug 03, 2012 7:18 pm

Absolute Zero

On the planet Gildresh, isolated far away in the first arm, the inevitable had occurred. A nuclear war had ensued, and all possible forms of communication with other planets had ceased to exist. Left without aid from people on other worlds, Gildresh fell into a nuclear winter, the sun blocked by clouds of ash. The temperature plunged below zero, and the planet became a frozen wasteland. People starved, barely able to provide food for their families, and the ensuing chaos killed millions. Gildresh had been plunged into a new Dark Age.

Many years later, a variety of governments formed, claiming different lands as their own to rule. However, this did not bring the balance Gildreshians had long-hoped for. The rulers were unfair and greedy, and imposed high taxes on their subjects. Those that were unable to pay them were met with cruel retribution. Soon, people found themselves in a worse situation than when there were no laws at all, and it seemed that nothing could end their suffering.


Soon, a secret organization, known as the International Federation of Global Emergency, or IFGE, formed. They determined that the world was in a pitiful state, and needed to be brought under one government once more. However, this proved harder than originally thought. The rulers of each country were once more advancing in technology, building horrid weapons. The IFGE was unable to keep up, and their weaponry was limited, and so they sought an alternative.

Later, the IFGE came up with the only solution they were able to carry out, to begin a project to create and train super soldiers. Putting this project into action, they quickly devised a serum that would enhance the physical and mental capabilities of anyone it was administered to. However, there was only one problem: They soon learned that only children at their most adaptive ages in life were capable of taking the serum and developing the enhanced abilities. So, they sent out agents to find young teens, teens who were desperate enough to undergo the life-changing the procedure….

_________________________________________

Hello! And welcome to Absolute Zero, the RP based in a post-apocalyptic world!

In this story, you play as a super-soldier in the International Federation of Global Emergencies weapons program. However, the serum has left many complications. Only children between the ages of 13 and 18 in human years are capable of taking the serum and developing the enhanced abilities. As a result, many of the people in the story are brand-new at the project, and are being trained by agents without enhancements. Only two people have had the enhancements for over a year, and they have long-since vanished, seemingly running for their lives. Although it seems the IFGE is trying to find them, there has been no sign of Alexis or Timur, although they have become legends in the agency.

Please note that by enhanced abilities, I do not mean super powers like heat vision and telepathy. I mean physically stronger, and mentally speaking, more intelligent. Real super powers have nothing to deal with this. However, the longer they have had the serum, the more powerful they will become. Also, the setting is on a frozen planet, which has a small desert around its equator. There is little room for swamps, jungles, and forests (Although frozen ones with conifer trees may appear). Before you join, here are some rules.

Rules

1. No flaming, spamming, or illegal activities allowed.

2. No Autoing, Metagaming, Godmodding, or Powerplaying

3. This has nothing to deal with weird superpowers, they are not allowed.

4. Characters must be within the age range, no exceptions. If your characters are of a race that ages differently, please try to make it close to the age range given.

5. Certain races, such as Karthla are not permitted here.

6. There are no spaceships here, as civilization has regressed, and there is no communication with other planets or satellites.

7. Certain kinds of technology, like laser pistols and power armor, exist. However, it is incredibly rare, and only certain high-ranking officials have power armor and such weapons. Everyone else has to stick to bullets and kevlar vests. Nobody can have this unless the occasion is special.

8. Airplanes, cars, and any other kind of vehicle is restricted to governments and agencies. Civilians are restricted to non-powered vehicles, wood-burning stoves, and coal.

9. Everybody is new, and nobody has had their serum for more than a year, aside from Alexis and Timur, who have vanished.

10. If you want the enhancements to progress further, check with the GM or Moderators to make sure it is not too much.

11. Put 'Extreme' in the 'Other' Section of your sheet.

Accepted Character Sheets

ViperaUnion

Name: Christal
Gender: Female
Age: 15
Species: Chimerosu gryphus

Appearance: As a species in the genus Chimerosu, Christal has most of the typical features. She has a long, serpentine body, with two pairs of legs, and one pair of arms. She has a buzzard-like beak, and yellow eyes with small pupils. She has a long mane around the back of her head, and a set of horns that are curved forward. She has feet with two forward-facing toes, and one hind talon. Her hands are armored, like her feet, with thick skin capable of resisting gastric acid. She has a tail tuft and spikes at its base. She has dark brown feathers, with reddish-brown stripes. Her underbelly has cream-colored scales, like a snake’s. She has large bird wings behind her shoulders. She has muscles slightly stronger than a normal member of her species, but not very prominent, due to not having the serum for long. She wears a Mongrillian skin jacket to protect herself from the cold.
Personality: Being the first super soldier trainee to arrive after the disappearance of Alexis and Timur, Christal knows the most in regards to training and operations in the IFGE HQ. She has not gone on a formal mission yet, but looks forward to it, as she will be rewarded with coal, food, and money for her family. She is very kind-hearted and has a strong sense of duty to people in need. Therefore, she gets along with most agents, and rarely complains, even if she doesn’t like something. She isn’t too much smarter than the rest of her kind, as the serum has not affected her long enough to do too much.

Other: Extreme

Name: Alexis
Gender: Female
Age: 15
Species: Human

Appearance: Alexis is about 5’5” tall, with a thin, slender figure. She has large dark brown eyes, which are almost black. Her hair is long and wavy, and falls down to the small of her back, slightly unkempt, due to her lack of recent grooming. She looks to be about thirteen, despite her height, due to an anti-aging effect the serum has caused. Her arms and legs are filled with lean muscles, as well as the rest of her body, due to physical enhancement caused by the same serum. She wears a form-fitting black suit with a sci-fi appearance, which was likely once power armor, but has been stripped of all technology, likely to avoid being tracked. Therefore, it no longer contains any armor plates, and due to nobody maintaining it, it is slightly worn in appearance. She wears matching black shoes that cover her feet perfectly, shaping to her toes and allowing her to walk like a natural human. She has gloves that are the same way. Over this entire outfit, she wears a jacket made of Tuskilant skin, likely to provide extra warmth in the cold weather.

Personality: Alexis is very kind and friendly, when someone first meets her. However, because she has spent a long time fleeing from the government and the IFGE, she can also be incredibly suspicious of one’s motives. She rarely trusts anyone that she doesn’t know, especially if they are her own age. She knows the IFGE has created a weapons program to make more like her, and doesn’t want to run into the recent group of super soldiers. If she doesn’t like someone, she is either incredibly hostile, or extremely scared. She is incredibly intelligent, however, as well as super strong physically. She knows how to operate several different vehicles and devices, as well as several combat techniques. Despite all of this, she is mostly silent, and remains in deep thought most of the time.

Other: Extreme

Name: Timur
Gender: Male
Age: 16
Species: Human

Appearance: Timur is about 6’3” tall, with a strong, muscular figure. He has silver eyes and straight raven black hair that falls to his shoulders, slightly unkempt, due to a lack of grooming. His skin is slightly tanned, but not incredibly dark, either. He wears a black jumpsuit that has a sci-fi theme to it, indicating that it was once power armor. However, it was stripped of all its technology and plates, making it useless in regards to defense. It is also somewhat worn. He has matching black shoes that fit his feet like gloves, even his toes, allowing him to walk naturally. He also has gloves of a similar material. Over this, he wears a Mongrillian skin jacket, likely to insulate from the cold.

Personality: Timur has a very brooding personality, rarely speaking, and seeming to be tormented by memories that he refuses to explain. He is always suspicious of new people, and rarely sees a reason to trust them. He trusts Alexia, but this is only because she is the only person who seems to know what he has suffered. He is always running from the IFGE, and will push himself until it is almost hazardous to his health. However, he does not seem to mind, as the serum always repairs any damage he does to himself. He rarely stops moving, preferring to stay as far away from the people tracking him.

Other: Extreme

Northe

Name: Giuseppe
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Species: Harmian

Appearance: Giuseppe has dark skin for a Harmian, almost orange. Like all Harmians, he has one leg, and one suction foot capable of gripping platforms solidly. He wears the traditional garb of his people, thick grey and black close-fitting leather with spikes extending from the backs of his arms. His eyes are bright yellow and his horns, long for his age, curve gently backward. His muscles are well-developed, showing his huge upper body strength.

Personality: Giuseppe has a very aggressive personality, but he also shows great loyalty to those he cares about. He has no family to speak of, but he is eager to help the IFGE because they have given him hope and a reason to keep striving. He hates many of the governments on Gildresh, because he blames them for the death of his family. He is clever and able to contrive unique solutions to problems, and although the effects of the drug so far have been negligible, he is nevertheless confident that he will prove a great asset to the IFGE.

Other: Extreme

GroxLord

Name: Telfus
Gender: Male
Age: 15
Species: Dranzoot

Appearance: Telfus looks like most Dranzoot, except he has a more grayish skin tone than most Dranzoot and his claws are a bit thicker and a bit longer.

Personality: Telfus is very peaceful and kind. However he is not at all considered a wimp and WILL take up for himself. He does his best to remain peaceful but when enemies are near he must bring out his dark side. He does not take crap from others and will not tolerate the bullying of other people. He is very intellegent and has learned to live with peace and not to hold grudges, however he will do his best to purge what he believes is evil from the universe.

Other: Extreme

Whoster

Name: Lak'Jzen.
Gender: Male
Species: Jorro'kil
Age: 17

Appearance: Lak'Jzen is an ordinary Jorro'kil, although he appears just slightly lanky, he is very agile in reality. His skin is slightly darker a color of blue.

Personality: Lak'Jzen's parents died when he was very young, around age 3. This has scarred him, making him to be aggressive and sceretive as well. He doesn't like people to get too close. His bones' natural strength only increased his power when he signed up for the testing.

Other: Extreme

Hmm....very interesting......It looks cool, but doesn't exactly stand out to me, IMHO. It seems to have very little connection to RG itself, but hey, I could be wrong.

Well, It's kind of far-fetched, because it doesn't involve space travel, however, it does have a bit of relation. A long time ago, the planet was like any other RG planet, but then it got nuked and was destroyed. This is kind of that planet that had what we all see happen to planets in war, and how it recovered. Later in the story, we'll probably develop technology, and it'll eventually re-emerge into space stage. However, for now, I wanted to make an RP that was separate from the current conflicts, and make one with more emotional depth. This is essentially a post-apocalyptic RP, and there are RG races like the Jorro'kil that can appear here. People don't control entire armies, and they have characters that develop on a personal level. Sort of political, in a way. it was an idea that just came to me, that I didn't really want to put on the sporum. Trust me when I say that it'll become more and more RG related over time as technology advances.

Seems interesting. Just a couple questions I have -

1. What kind of interactions are possible between empires in RG and people here?
2. Beside being strong mentally and physically, what else is possible?

Well, the serum takes a certain course the longer it is in the patients system. First, there is the general enhancements of strength and mental abilities, but that's just the beginning. The longer it's there, the patient will start to develop immunity to severe diseases, become resistant to toxins, and then we get into superpowers like super strength, speed, and maybe even telepathy. Sort of like Captain America, I guess. They also start to become more enduring, which is particularly good when the whole world is frozen.

As for other races, at the beginning, the world will be mostly isolated, but as time progresses, other empires will become involved as people start to learn more about the IFGE and the planet's past. I have an idea that people will start looking for ways to call for help.

Ok, cool. I'm going to write up a sheet for a character in a bit.

Also, just to clarify, we must play as soldiers to find these 2 individuals, not people running from the government, correct? If so, maybe my character could find yours and get defeated, and eventually join them.

That's actually what's going to happen. Timur and Alexis are humans, and are biologically weaker than most races on the planet. However, they've had their serum treatments longer than any other person on the planet, so they are much stronger. The Agency is full of normal people, so when the guys get trained, they'll try to send a team to capture them. But that is actually much harder than it sounds.

However, there isn't just one government, there are many of them. The Agency is something top-secret, that has to make sure it stays anonymous from them. So you should be careful, because the governments may also be a threat.

The main physical feature separating humans from harmians is that the latter only has one leg. I just don't know if you'd rather have more humans or more aliens.

I actually don't really care that much. All races are permitted, aside from ones like Karthla that mature so fast it would be unfair.

EDIT: Also, I made that Chimerosu breed that is in the RP. It looks kind of goofy, but I'm not very good with condor breeds.

I have an intense history written for Giuseppe as well, that helps to explain why he is the way he is.

Yeah, just saying, only two characters have had it longer than a year, and they're sort of there to be a part of the mystery in the RP...yes, we will have secrets to find out.

EDIT: Also, I put up the IC.

EDIT 2: Okay, NOW it's approved.

Name: Agent MYRE
Gender: Male
Age: 18
Species: New Jabban (protojabban, to be exact)
Appearance: (this is an older version of Myre. He looks a lot younger here because he is younger here).
Personality:MYRE is the sharp, quick-witted type who never runs out of things to say. He's the sort who will sit there while being strapped to an electric chair and wittily banter with his nemesis while they obsessively wring their hands. He usually has a very long temper, and can take insults and spitting and people tossing mud on his shoes (well, feet) and such. He does have one pet peeve, but it's so top-secret that I can't even say it. Nope, not doing it! LALALALA! I cannt hear you!

Uh...Maxx, you might not be able to use Agent Myre here. The technology in the story isn't advanced enough for your guy. Plus, there's the issue of how he got on the planet in the first place. People are born on the planet, and space traveling isn't allowed at the moment.
