With blessings from Siriel to start this Sign-Up Thread.........
Welcome, once again, to SHR, my friends.
In the year 2357 A.D., mankind and all their viscious, earth shattering weapons, did their absolute best to kill each other and wipe all life from the Earth.
And they all but succeeded.
But one city, one beacon of hope, rose from the shadows and became the symbol of mankind's hope for thr future, and their survival. With a technology unknown to the rest of humanity, it managed to survive the chaos with it's impenetrable dome protecting it and the few human survivors therein.
It was called Eden, the Last City of Man.
Now, 1000 years have passed (1000, Restored Era) and Edan thrives. It houses over a popultaion of 50 million, the only human habitation on the entire, ruined Earth, and it grows each decade, expanding it's dome and reclaiming more land for houses, farms, and other buildings. The people are happy, well off, and Eden is pretty much a Utopia.
However, due to the fallout of what happened 1000 years ago, humanity has been altered slightly and now at least a 1/10 of Eden's 50+million population are either Elemanti (elemental users) or Enhancers (physical stat boosters) or a combo of both (Elemancers). These groups are classified as Class F, E, D, C, B, or A. Class F are those with barely any potential in either area, and can't get any stronger no matter what. Their power is pretty much redundant, and requires no training or control. This covers the vast majority of that 1/10th. Anything above a Class F, however, by government mandate, requires training at one of the four special and elite Academy's that Eden boasts: Blackthorn, Summerisle, Cavacar, and Arcadia.
And that's where your characters come in.
Your characters have either been forced to join, or have willingly sent aplications and have been asked to join, Arcadia Academy. There, they will learn to control their powers for the benefit of Eden and all of humanity.
However, behind the scenes of the Utopian society, darkness stirs. Something is rotten at the heart of Eden, and if you don't held find it out and stop it, humanity may yet perish for good this time.
At the start of the game (up to a Plot Point around half-way/three-fourths of the way in the first Act), you will only be able to put your starting 10 EXP points into TWO (and two ONLY) stats. This is beacuse people only have access to two stats if they're born an Elemanti/Enhancer/Elemancer. They can be any two (so one from each if you wanted), but only two. Creativity with your powers as far as them enhancing each other/working together is welcome.
Speed: (incorporates Agility too).
Stamina: (Incorporates regeneration, ability to stay fighting for longer periods, etc....)
These will change at that plot point and all the other Elemanti and Enhancer stats will be open to you, alongside a few other new stat areas/powers (Ether, Ancient Tech, and Leyline).
A 0 in your stat area if you're an elemental user grants you one ability. You gain another ability at 5 stat points, and after that it's each 5 stat points grants a new power/skill in that area. Sine your levels are so low, you only have basic control over your element for up to fifty feet around your proximity. Anything beyond that is too much for you.
Also, each stat has advantages and disadvantages. As an example, if you have a character with just a Strength of 5 and no durability to back it up, you'll be able to strike with the force of a Class 5, but unable to lift such an amount. If you tried, your arms would shatter because they aren't super durable.
Same with Speed. Speed 5 is great, but without Durability to match, if you tripped or ran into something, you'ld be seriously hurt. And without Stamina to match, you won't be able to last long in your enhanced state of Speed.
Due to the tighter restrictions on beginning stats, I will allow characters to have personalized weapons or a martial skill that will get stronger as they do. Said weapons cannot be chemically fired guns (that's the only rule, as in Eden such things have been banned). Anything else is fair game, including laser weaponry.
Here is the Character Creation Page:
HERITAGE/RACE: (Since Eden is a melting pot of all that's left of humanity, and there are no nations or countries left, this spot is just for us to know what you trace your nationality to).
AGE: (Must be between 16-18).
WEAPON TYPE/MARTIAL SKILL: (List what weapon you prefer/Martial skill you're skilled in. This is optional)
APPERANCE: (please provide height, weight, etc.....and a picture if possible)
CHARACTER HISTORY & PERSONALITY: (A basic description of your character's past and his or her more prominent character traits)
PERSONAL SKILLS: (Here you may chose two minor skills your character has. Nothing extraordinary – basically just an everyday pair of talents which he or she happens to be good at. Cooking, drawing, singing, etc....)
POWER TYPE: (Elemanti, Enhancer, or Elemancer)
-Power 1 (your first stat)
-Power 2 (your second stat)
The inner-workings of the tech and societal structure of Edan will be revealed in the next few posts, so if you have any questions, go ahead and ask them in regards to anything.
Hope to see you join. :)
