RP NAME: ORCA__
OP NAME: Ontorisa
CO-OP NAMES: N/a so far
PREMISE:

Omnisentient Reactionary Computing AI.

ORCA was supposed to help the human civilization rebuild after a mysterious event, the Catastrophe, wiped out the majority of the human's progress over the thousands of years they had existed. Except... ORCA never emerged, never was found, and disappeared from the grasp of humanity. It was supposed to transform the Earth from its barren wasteland, filled with burnt out shells of houses, carcasses of monuments and
the badlands the Earth's land had turned into, back into its former self, a lush green, paradise. With a geographically different Earth, humans eventually gave up on the concept of ORCA and simply reverted to their primal instincts: band together and survive.

Over the years, ORCA was forgotten as various towns and cities emerged along the rotting planet of Earth. Ruins of humanity's previous achievements, glass and concrete skyscrapers, still littered parts of the world, but the majority of the achievements had been eroded away by years of neglect and nature. While they are still explored by various scavengers and inhabited by outlaws or criminals, a few who still believe in the mythology of ORCA and reckon that it resides in these grand cities that were hit the hardest by the Catastrophe. The catch? Aside from the outlaws and paranoid scavengers, other beings reside in the ruins. Monsters, they're called, Demons from the depths of Hell.

Aside from the walled towns, warring factions that are scattered across the singular continent and confined mainly to the shores of the North Ocean, the Earth is now riddled with these ruins, small oasis villages and deep canyons in the midst of a scorching and volatile wasteland. Everything is hostile, even the people that are encountered in the walled towns.

GENRE (Sci-Fi, Horror, Drama, etc): Post-Apocalyptic, Action, Adventure, Drama
TYPE (Character, Nation or Otherwise): Character
PROVIDE A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE RP: Opening characters are grouped together in one of these walled towns and are guided by the OP & Co-OPs towards these ruins to find ORCA. Any players who join in halfway through are encountered along the way. Expect this to be a typical Ontorisa(TM) RP with a bunch of grit and realism. Eventually the characters will find ORCA in one of the ruins and find out it's both meant to help rebuild the Earth and to fix what went wrong (I'm going with the Catastrophe being a mix of natural disasters, diseases and the Earth's spin slowing down immensely).
IS THE OUT-OF-CHARACTER THREAD POSTED?: No
IS THE IN-CHARACTER THREAD POSTED?: No
NATURE OF REQUEST (Feedback, Looking for Co-Ops, Looking for Players, etc.): I'm looking for both feedback on the plot so far (not 100% done with it), people who are interested, people willing to Co-OP (preferably Pub members I know) and people willing to help me build the world up from scratch, which includes locations, maps and factions, as well as the history. I'm planning for this RP to take place pretty far in the future, but the Catastrophe basically sends society back a few thousand years (i.e. reliant on electricity, use of metals instead of newer, synthetic materials, the reliance on farming and fishing instead of manufactured foods, etc.)

It's a mix of "global warming", a disease and the Earth's spin slowing down way before it's expected to.

I was thinking that the human civilization at the time discovered that extracting some of the molten core of the Earth could generate a ton of power so they started doing that, which could cause the Earth to stop spinning, but I don't know if that's scientifically accurate.

Krypton went extinct because of more than one problem, though. For one, their freaking AI (Brainiac) decided "oh wait, why should I warn them? I just go to another planet instead and making collections of planets, sounds better"

How far in the future are we?


To the point where we have much better power sources than "green" energy and able to create intelligent and very advanced AI that could help terraform an entire planet. Like, probably 1,000 years? But it's because of the Catastrophe that much of this knowledge is lost.

A lot of this inspiration comes from that little minigame we had with that computer thing in the other pub thread.

I wanted to take something like that and make it not creepy, but still have logs from before the Catastrophe.

But, honestly, the cause of the Catastrophe would be revealed through ORCA's development logs, but what I have now is that the molten core being mined for energy was one of the reasons why the Earth stopped spinning and the climate change/natural disasters occurred at a faster rate.

RP NAME
OP NAME: Shadowwell
CO-OP NAMES: None, yet
PREMISE: Mellow-Brook Academy was founded in the early 1900s in the Northern Midwest. It was founded in the state of Wyoming, One of the least populous yet most expansive states in the Union. Its relative isolation from all civilization but the nearby town of Beaver Bay serves its purposes well. For decades it has served to educate all kinds of students, from privileged youths whose parents are too soft to send them to boot camp to teens who have had to settle for a less than ideal educational institution. Others still range from delinquents to the children of drifters and wanderers or even the occasional worth runaway.

This is not the true purpose of the academy however. The true, secret purpose is to house and secretly train those of rather unusual talents. They are Metahumans, those with abilities beyond those of normal humans. Unfortunately, humanity shuns what it does not understand, and the vast majority of them are in hiding. The Founder and the Subsequent headmasters of Mellow-Brook have secretly gathered these Metahumans to train and keep them safe. Unfortunately many Metahumans have troubled pasts and more than a few have entered the Academy bearing the title of Delinquent or Troublemaker or some similar judgmental title. For many years Mellow-Brook has peacefully operated, until recently that is.

During an in-town party held by Seniors of Mellow-Brook, tragedy struck. The party itself lasted until the early morning. When the bleary eyed youths awoke with massive hangovers, they were shocked, finding the body of a dead party-goer. It appeared to be and was ruled as an overdose, the strange thing was the Student, Sebastien Morrow had ben famously known for his lake of partaking of such things at parties. In the months since the youths death, federal agents have shown up on occasion and a new school year has started.

GENRE : Academy, Metahuman, may be some others
TYPE : Character
PROVIDE A BRIEF SUMMARY OF THE RP: You will be a new or returning student to Mellow-Brook academy, which is still recovering from the death of a student the previous year. The academy holds secrets, the least of which is the fact some students possess what some might call superpowers.
IS THE OUT-OF-CHARACTER THREAD POSTED?: No
IS THE IN-CHARACTER THREAD POSTED?: No
NATURE OF REQUEST: I would like feedback and help with the worldbuilding that remains to be done. I need help finding pictures for the Academy, i can use the ones from Owl creek Academy that still work for the town adn lake.
IDENTIFICATION CODE: 1914 (DO NOT REMOVE)


i know you all do not like Academy rps, that is actually part of why i posted this here. I will have specific rules that will address fade to blacks, they will eb allowed, but not on the first night of the IC. I want someone who will help to enforce that.


Anyone look at this?

It's funny how anybody even remembers that from the old thread.

Honestly, it gave you inspiration for the Facility and gave me inspiration for ORCA no? It's the mystery are trying to figure out what the AI had hiding within itself.

I'm not sure about accuracy, but for one it would surely destroy earth magnetic field. And to be honest I don't think humans will be foolish enough to do so, as it will be much more effective to use the molten core as a 'furnace' to power geothermal facilities. It's your story though, so you can make something up.

Yeah, I've actually had most of the Para-Verse RP ideas planned out since the Zone became a success.

Which is admittedly some Marvel Cinematic Universe level of getting ahead of myself, but since we're in summer and that means the inevitable RP purge when Fall comes around, I like to be prepared.
