I wouldnt say freezing, though i am not entirely familiar with Englands climate, it is mostly rainy and cold, but not quite freezing then again as a child i used to frolic around in 10 ft high snow banks in naught but shorts and a tank top, one of the things i miss from my birthplace the sheer amount of snow.

Funny thing, Potatoes were once considered the devils work in france, until a guy made a dinnter for the french royalty at the time, this solved the famine, kind of. The favorite dish was pomne fritte, or what would become french fries. This was during the era of Marie antoinette, prior to her utter stupidity however.

I've read that Marie Antoinette probably never said that the starving peasants should eat cake. I've also read that if she did it was most likely any innocent comment made by a clueless girl who lived a very sheltered (basically imprisoned) life and didn't understand what was happening. There was a lot of cake in her world, and she might have thought that cake was something available to the masses. She may have wondered why they were so mad about bread when they could just be eating cake instead.

I was more referring to the derp moment when she tried to run during the Revolution, causing everyone to lose their heads, lol.

Prior to that they were going to let the royal family live, atleast for a while. According to my understanding atleast.

I would love a reboot of Across the Stars, that had a lot going for it, but things happened and it was forced to end.

I had thought of a rp from that rp though, only possibly vaguely similar, called of Space and Titans.

But it has evolved a bit:

viewtopic.php?p=31772359&sid=07a020ff299bae218446ea1b74df68f7#p31772359

Edit: or i could have taken inspiration from interstellar ascendancy, but they were similar.

Precisely why we don't do a wank RP and just make a SoL RP where we can just act out the typical response personiied nations would have to OOC goings on. It's literally metagaming, because metagaming.

Funny thing, Potatoes were once considered the devils work in france, until a guy made a dinnter for the french royalty at the time, this solved the famine, kind of. The favorite dish was pomne fritte, or what would become french fries. This was during the era of Marie antoinette, prior to her utter stupidity however.

I've read that Marie Antoinette probably never said that the starving peasants should eat cake. I've also read that if she did it was most likely any innocent comment made by a clueless girl who lived a very sheltered (basically imprisoned) life and didn't understand what was happening. There was a lot of cake in her world, and she might have thought that cake was something available to the masses. She may have wondered why they were so mad about bread when they could just be eating cake instead.


She definitely didn't say it. The origin of the phrase is from Rousseau's Confessions with this phrase "At length I recollected the thoughtless saying of a great princess, who, on being informed that the country people had no bread, replied, 'Then let them eat pastry!'"

The book that was from was one of several published between 1765 and 1767, so Marie Antoinette would have been between 9 and 12. She also hadn't left Austria to go to France, either, by that point, and saying something like that would be rather out of character for her, too.

Alright, here goes again. Hope it looks good.

THE LAST OF US: EXODUS

Theme

Co-OPS:

The world is dead.

2013. That was the year the infection began to spread. Nobody knew what would happen then. We were all so naive. We were huddled into these little camps by FEDRA, they told us we would be safe. I won’t call it a lie; they believed it. Goddammit, they believed it. That was a long time ago. We know a hell of a lot more about the virus now. The fact that it’s not even a virus was the first thing we learned. A fungus, Cordyceps it’s called. Nobody really calls it that anymore. Just “infected.” It’s degrading, but… we live with it.

Twenty-two years since the infection started. As you may guess from your surroundings, society has fallen apart. Now, if you were one of those people who were born after the apocalypse, fuck… I don’t want to ruin your day or anything, but you don’t know what you are missing out on. Hot dogs. Hot dogs! God, I miss hot dogs. Ketchup. I miss ketchup. I don’t miss mustard. Mustard can go jump off a bridge for all I care. Sorry, I’m getting off track.

There’s these groups. Fireflies, call themselves activists. Militia, if you ask me. Terrorists, if you ask others. Saviors of the world, if you ask real gullible people. I wouldn’t mess with them, personally. Then there’s the military, what’s left of it. They put people into outbreak zones, keeping them safe. It was true, I guess. You were happy, if you liked getting bossed around by a bunch of assholes with guns. I left there, but… I wouldn’t be in the mess I am now if I had just stayed.

Fuck. Sorry. I know, it’s probably super boring to read about me whining. I left the military outpost, found myself in this motel. I should have known that spores were around. I got my gas mask on before any of it touched me. I think, at least. Also, while you’re hear, watch out for the spores, unless you have a gas mask. I guess you can borrow mine, if you need one. I won’t be using it anymore. I just realized I spelled “here” wrong. I’m just gonna leave it, cause I’m writing this in pen and then there’d just be a huge black smudge in the middle of this paper. I’m a little dyslexic, so sorry. I’ve been writing this pretty slowly, though that’s probably because I’m scared.

Getting off track again. I gotta stop doing that. There’s a few assholes outside, chased me into this hotel. Hope those damn clickers came out and ate them. You should probably watch out for those guys. Trouble all around, heard a few of them were even resorting to cannibalism. Shivers my bones. Freaks. Anyways, if you see a dead guy outside in a yellow jacket, piss on him for me, will you? He shot off my ear. My right one. That was my favorite ear too!

There’s a few clickers outside, chased me in here. I’ve got six bullets in my pistol left. I’m a pretty good shot, should be able to hit them all in the head. If there’s six, I’ll use all my bullets and you’ll never read this note. If you are reading this note, there were more than six and I saved one for myself. Or I just ended up being a terrible shot in which case I’m snacking on you or shambling about the grounds.

If you’re ever up in Maine, and you meet this girl named Elizabeth, right? Blue eyes, blonde hair, got this nasty scar along her right cheek. She’s in the northern part. Got a tough personality. If you see her, tell her to go fuck herself, courtesy of her brother James. That’s me, by the way. James. James. Also, mind burying me or putting me down if you find me in here? I mean, bury me after you put me down, of course. Don’t just leave my body out there if I happen to be a Runner. Bury with my hat, too. It’s blue, Tar Heels. I don’t even like the Tar Heels. I’m putting it on the nightstand. They’re breaking in. I can see the wood splintering. Anyways, if you’re reading this, sorry. Sorry I couldn’t kill them all.

Stay safe out there.

In The Last of Us: Exodus, you play as one of the survivors of a brutal attack upon the Military Outpost in Plain, Washington. Beginning only minutes before the attack on the Quarantine Zone, players will start off by getting their groundings in the world. The characters will include all those in the camp at the time of attack. After your escape from the attack, the unlikely group of travelers are pitted on a journey across America, not just to survive, but to find a reason to keep on living.

Civilians
Civilians are your everyday run of the mill people. They were just about anything before the apocalypse, and most of them led normal lives, as mechanics or office workers or school kids. They don’t belong to any one group, but are attempted to be recruited by FEDRA and the Fireflies. Some escape and become Hunters, or smuggle things from inside the walls. Most of them lead normal lives inside the camps. It was safe in them, after all.

Smugglers
Smugglers were once tied down to Quarantine Zones or Fireflies or any other thing that could hold them, but eventually began to use illegal methods to get by. They often fight each other for power, much like the criminal groups of old. Smugglers rely on performing difficult tasks for people. Those who can pay with the ever lucrative ration cards, that is.

Military
The "protectors" of the Quarantine Zones, the military, along with FEDRA, are the last remnants of the United States Government. The Military works aggressively with FEDRA, putting down any infected, no matter what. The Military has been known to crush the sparks of rebellion, but are still at war with the terrorist-activist group known as the Fireflies.

Fireflies
Fireflies are members of the the revolutionary militia group of the same name. Their goal is to return all branches of the US Government, and overtake FEDRA and the Military. Fireflies often send sleeper agents to Quarantine Zones to gain information on FEDRA. The Fireflies are also looking for a cure for the virus, but some see their methods as inhumane. Currently, they are fighting a losing war against FEDRA.

A species of fungus that once turned insects into mind controlled zombies, began affecting humans as well. The fungus is transmitted via direct blood contact and spores in the air. When an infected is close to death, they find a dark, moist corner to lay down and die in. Even though the host has died, Cordyceps continues on. It continues to grow in the host, spreading to the walls and releasing spores. Infected are susceptible to fire due to the fungus growing in them, but can be killed just about any way you can think.

Stage 1: Runners
1-2 days after infection, you become a Runner. Runners are the first stage of infection, and have poor eyesight, although hold a heightened awareness. They are the easiest of the infected to kill, able to be strangled and desposed of in anyway you would a human. They are easily identified by their glowing orange eyes and lack of any fungal growths on the outside of their bodies.

Stage 2: Stalkers
Stalkers have the vision and speed of Runners, with the ferocity of Clickers. They make very distinct croaking sounds, and are the stage in between Runners and Clickers. Stalkers are identifiable by fungal growths overtaking one side of their face, emerging from an eye socket (typically the right one). They are extremely dangerous and extremely intelligent, hiding and using hunting tactics to kill survivors. They rely on ambushes, and while deadly can be killed any way a Runner can.

Stage 3: Clickers
2-4 years after initial infection, fungus begins pouring from every orifice and turning the victim’s head into a mass of bioluminescent growth. Clickers have strength that far out rivals that of a normal human, but due to the overgrowth on their heads, have become blind. Clickers use echolocation to find food, which they will hunt until they kill it or it escapes. Clickers also possess exceptional hearing, and even the smallest of sounds will attack. They are extremely aggressive, rarely flinch, and are relentless. Clickers cannot be strangled, as their strength would simply reverse the maneuver on any attacker. Clickers are aptly named, due to the clicking sounds they make to find prey.

Stage 4: Bloaters
9-10 years after infection, the Cordyceps virus converts the infectee into a Bloater. Bloaters are the final stage of infection, and are the most dangerous of the infected. They are covered in a dense fungus that protects them even from high powered rounds. Like Clickers, Bloaters rely on echolocation but move at a much slower pace. Once a survivor is found, they will hunt them by throwing sacks of Mycotoxin at it’s prey. If a survivor is caught by a Bloater, it will either crush the person’s head or forcefully rip their jaw apart. Bloaters should be avoided if at all possible.

1. Don’t be a dick, in OOC at least. Seriously, don't. Constant fighting is not good, and will get you kicked from the RP.

2. Don’t godmod, don’t metagame, you get the idea. All the in general RP rules.

3. If you are going to be away for some time, please tell me, either in OOC or by TG. If you just go and disappear with no words spoken, I’ll assume you aren't coming back and let your character go. Don't let this make you think you have to post every day, or even every week! (It would be nice, though.) I will typically give players some time if they go missing for a period.

4. Death will happen in this RP. Don't let that scare you though, your characters won't all get slaughtered all willy nilly. As this RP has a focus on character development and story, deaths will not be used as shock value, but rather for in-story reasons.

5. Speaking of characters, remember. Your character should act like a human being. You are playing the “heroes” of this story, and as such your characters shouldn't be Mary Sues that only brood and whine about how miserable they are, nor should they believe they are in a land of rainbows and puppies. Be realistic.

6. Characters who have absolutely no hardships will be killed off. That means those with absolutely infallible aim, run faster than Usain Bolt, are stronger than Clickers, or those who can take out an entire room of men in a minute tops. Remember, everybody has flaws.

7. If you’d like to introduce some external conflict (like zombies, Hunters, Military, Fireflies, bad weather, wild dogs, etc.) ask me first. It could potentially ruin the flow of the RP if the survivors are constantly having to fend off threats. Inter-personal threats and drama are fine, and actually encouraged.
Nothing here, yet.

Character Limits

Each person will be allowed two characters at one time, but sometimes an extension to three characters can be negotiated. All players are allowed three characters in total (three throughout the entire RP should be enough), in the case their other ones meet a bullet or infected’s jaws. There will be limitations to factions, as well.

Special Gameplay Elements

1. How Bites Will Be Dealt With - In the case that I decide a character has been bitten, I will TG the player whose character has been put on death row. The player can then choose to have their character tell the other characters of their newfound illness, hide the bite, or even commit suicide. The character can do, theoretically anything possible after infection, but they must know that 2 in-game days after the infection they will turn. Unless…

2. They happen to be immune. One character will be chosen specifically to be immune to the infection. Nobody will know if they are actually immune until they are bitten or dropped in spores and miraculously live. This helps to bring in paranoia between players and characters.
