The Fall of Arboria: OOC [Open] Reboot

Hello, I want to take a moment to welcome you all to a new roleplay I am doing within this franchise. This roleplay concerns the daily life of a citizen in a model city built by several mega-corporations. While you thought coming here would make your life better something is happening, and you cannot quite put your finger on it. As the atmosphere of the city turns grim, people start to disappear, and things begin to change just one thing comes to mind. How will you, and those you know to survive this crisis?



The City is built upon the remains of a terraforming experiment that various mega-corporations conducted in the 1960s. Off the coast of Washington state, they tested terraforming technology in hopes the Martian colonists would be able to spread outside of their initial settlements. The test was a resounding success, and an entire island rose out of the sea. Within a few months life began to rapidly appear on the island, and until 1978 the island was cordoned off as the property of Holden Industries. Following the destruction of the atomic war of '78, the mega-corporations began a campaign in 1985 to lay down the site for a new model city.

The terraformed island won the spot in a national lottery, and construction began by the late 1980s. The first foundations of the city were laid down in 1991, and the city was finished by 1995. Residence in the city was restricted by lottery, and corporate sponsorship since its purpose as the model city was to have "model residents". It is the perfect city the mega-corporations could ask for. One that is self-sufficient in every aspect, but also one that could serve as coffin if things ever went bad. Now with the plague reaching the shores of Arboria things are about to get really bad.
1] Essentially the city operates on a class system following corporate lines. Those with more important positions will undoubtedly enjoy greater privileges and access across the city.

2] As the roleplay progresses supplies will become critical, and as the situation devolves to the point the military stops dropping off supplies choices will have to be made. Those who suffer chronic conditions, and need specific medications or are on specific diets will begin to suffer deleterious effects if their needs aren't taken care of.

3] Hoarding supplies is only beneficial so long as you can protect those supplies. If people are hungry or sick enough they will try, and take them.

4] I fully expect fights to happen, but please be reasonable as an eighty-year-old fleeing a retirement home isn't going to be able to pack much of a punch in fighting off the Turned. Learn your weaknesses, and find a way to turn them into advantages.

5] Those with cards that grant them access to different areas can use them for good or bad. From helping a group of survivors flee to relative safety to actively impeding the quarantine effort.

6] Once things get too far out of handle for police, and other authorities to handle the military, and others will arrive. Their approach to quarantine will take a far harsher approach so be wary when committing actions in quarantined areas under their control.

7] Going on a homicidal rampage, and killing several people while expected isn't going to happen without consequences.

8] The morale of the city will play an important factor in how many people are left by the end of the roleplay.

9] Those will medical professions will have to make tough choices in regards to treatments. Do you begin human euthanization? Continue treatment in the hopes supplies will come in? Or perhaps use this as a bargaining chip for an ulterior motive? The choice is up to you.

10] Water, and food will be very plentiful at first, but ultimately rationing will commence after a certain point in the role play. As the city falls to the infection, and its remains are carved up the players will most likely go scouting for supplies to sustain themselves.

11] The maintenance of the power grid is extremely important and sabotaging it can make the situation in the city far worse...unless that's your goal of course.

12] This roleplay will likely have aspects of mental health struggle in it due to people beginning to realize their world is cracking apart. Suicide, grief, alcoholism, and drug addiction will be common themes in the "model city". As news broadcasts become fewer, and fewer this will play an impact on the health of the survivors. Hygiene is an important factor to remember not just for your sake, but the sake of your groups as well.
My intention for this roleplay isn't just to focus on the fall of the city, and the appearance of the turned. I expect as the quarantine, and oppressive rule of authority doubles down some people will break. I fully expect people to engage in petty or major drama within their own group as well as engage in tribalism for the sake of survival. Grappling ones religious beliefs with one's actions is a common theme I expect people to explore. This isn't just a roleplay about the fall of a city, but the death of the world these people know.

I would also argue it is about the death of the "self" as well since people are going to have to change quite a bit. As society breaks down you will most likely fall into groups that each focus on something different. Some might try to keep the city functioning while others hasten its downfall. This roleplay is going to involve a lot of personal agendas, and group conflict. Stuff like this is simply unavoidable, and I hope to see what people will strive to do.
When the roleplay starts people are much going to working for themselves or the corporations in some shape. Its only as society starts cracking apart will things start getting more "tribal". People in one apartment block are going to want something another has. It will be petty issues at first no doubt, but ultimately it will be about the survival of you, and by extension your group. The turned, and the authorities will not be your only enemy...when it comes to it...your fellow man will be.

How exactly? Well as orders break down you have consider either to approach the situation with the "greater good" in mind or "your own good". Will, you cut power to the hospital in order to keep the lights on in your area longer? Will you doom a retirement facility to a slow death by raiding food meant for them? Will you hoard supplies from your working place regardless of whether or not it is vital to the cities order?

Will you doom civilians by opening fire on them as they flee an approaching turned? The choice is yours, but remember all choices have consequences, and not just to you.
1) God-modding in this roleplay will have consequences to your character.

2) Issues between posters are to be reconciled by telegram or in a way that does not disrupt this roleplay.

3) At minimum, a paragraph per post is expected of you.

4) As society breaks down you will face tough choices, but please be realistic. An eighty year old man is not going to go toe to toe with a soldier guarding a food depot.

5) Obey the co-ops, and please avoid engaging in trolling, flaming, flame baiting, and disruptive acts in the roleplay. I understand we are all human, but please try to reconcile your differences.

6) This roleplay takes place in 2011, but the technology is not the same as our own. It hasn't advanced some fields while wildly advancing in fields we haven't even got a decent grasp on. So just read up, and try not to accidentally blend our own world with this one.

7) I want people to be reasonable with the number of characters they apply for. Considering the fact I want you to give great depth to your character. This will make any action such them murdered, dying, or committing suicide far more impactful.

When we heard the word from our corporate sponsor last year that we had been approved for entrance...we thought it would have turned out alright for us. We moved into the assigned apartment, had good jobs, plenty of food, money, and good lives. We never thought it would end in just a year. How can they justify doing this to us? There are over 250,000 people in this city...we have rights!

Now the good life is over, and this supposedly model city is rotting from some kind of horrible disease. The corporations took anyone of value out of this place and left everyone else here to die. We are all just some sort of fucking lab rats to these people! Our neighbors are busy either killing each other for food or are getting killed by the military. This apartment block is a warzone...the men in the hazmat gear promised us help would come.

Instead, they fenced us in, and eventually abandoned any pretense of help. I still remember poor Jeanie...they shot her in the face like she was an animal...all she wanted was some medicine for the coughing! They stopped giving food, and water packages two weeks ago, but it took five days to realize why. They essentially got orders to leave us for dead, but we didn't take it lying down. People got angry, and then they formed a mob armed with anything they had. The group got lucky at first and even overran the fence...until the turrets ripped them apart.

About day seven people started boarding in their doors if they had any food, and water left. Groups started forming and carving out territory in the apartment block to raid parts still with plenty of food, and water. The next three days was nothing, but a full-on turf war, and since then anyone who survived has picked up the scraps, and hid. With this addition in the journal, I think most of the apartment complex is dead, dying or too busy looting to care. I might be able to escape...the military seems preoccupied with fighting those things...maybe the hard rain outside my give me a bit of cover as I escape.

Wish me luck.



May 2011

Status report on the Japanese Flu,

This is researcher Ashton working with Seattle's CDC, and we have received some very disturbing reports regarding the island of Arboria. This is a general information letter for our operatives working on the island to help educate people, and inform them of the signs of the plague.

Origins: Okinawa, Republic of Japan

Beginnings: The current strain is believed to have first originated in the Okinawa laboratory complex of Unit 871 a military, and mega-corporation venture trying to stop an apparent corruption which had appeared in the nanites in the past. Unfortunately this required human, and animal testing. The locals found out and were outraged about this fact. Massive waves of protests turned into riots which broke the facilities defenses and released those afflicted with the test trial nanites into the general populace. Despite warning not to approach test subjects it is believed some locals hid them and paid the price.

Within two weeks time, the island of Okinawa was sunk into the sea after being overrun with the current strain. Unfortunately, such an extreme measure didn't work, and the corrupting strain of nanites began infecting their way across the home islands of Japan.

False Hope: The medicines for cold, and cases of flu do not work this is only a way to mask symptoms. Do not administer cold or flu medications as the corrupted nanites will merely use them to hide the symptoms, and come back three times worse.

Know what to avoid: Everyone is to be handed scanners, and they are to be used on anything possible. The corrupted nanites aren't just spread by the initial coughing, and sneezing of unsuspecting infected, but other methods as well. Avoid any suspicious food, water, constantly touched surfaces, or enclosed airtight spaces without proper filtration masks.

Avoiding Fear: This is just as contagious as the corruption so all nurses, doctors, and guards are to handle infected, and those nearest to them in a humane manner. Infected entering the comatose stage are to be administered euthanasia drugs in order to prevent turning, and the bodies are to be set on fire immediately to destroy any nanites present. There are a variety of inhibitors we are testing for field deployment against infection so please feel free to conduct usage as you see fit.

Being Responsible: Learn to appeal to religious, and civil authorities in order to maintain order, and ensure compliance amongst the populace. Termination of large crowds of infected is to be done in a civil manner without those being terminated alert to what is happening. Operatives are given clearance to use the "vaccine protocol" when needed. This will allow a "vaccine" containing a painless euthanasia drug to be administered.

Noticeable Symptoms: The nanites we use to sustain our lives in this radiation filled world are being turned against in a cruel irony, but the corrupted nanites cause noticeable symptoms.

A) Coughing, sneezing, drainage, sniffling, and slight fever.
B) Sore throat that hurts immensely causing little if any talk to be done in a hushed tone.
C) Within two to three days depending on the host immunity the fever will worsen, and the body begins to ache.
D) The fever is often the worst symptom as it will cause hallucinations of loved ones, and friends urging you to accept your fate as a future turned. Those who do accept will often begin entering into a comatose stage which is actually a way for the nanites to begin the transformation.
E) If one should adamantly refuse or be refused by the nanites then the hallucinations will appear concerning guilt and blame. They want their family member to join them or use any tactic to erode the willpower. Once enough willpower is eroded the organs will begin to fail painlessly, and the failed host will slip into death.
F) Both types of experience bleeding from the ears, eyes, nose, and mouth. From the somewhat lucid we are able to gather the hallucinatory conversations are immensely vivid. The conversations may not, in fact, be hallucinations, but in reality projections of the nanites feeding off the mental history, and notes gathered from the host brain.
* Acceptance rate for the turned is approximately 40% while the rejection rate is approximately 40%. There is about twenty percent chance at classification as an "anomaly".

Standard Operating Procedure:
*By this point most go to see doctors or visit the hospitals. All on-site operatives who notice symptoms are to enact quarantines immediately and separate the infected. The potentially infected, and those exposed are to be taken to separate rooms as well.
*Infected must be restrained on gurneys in specially assigned quarantined chambers. All operatives must keep a constant watch on infected, and known when to administer inhibitors, euthanasia drugs, or cremate the bodies.
*All anomalies are to be brought into state custody immediately as they are vital in fighting the turned.

Knowing the enemy: The Turned are beyond the simple mindless savages that some think they are. While the turned don't initially have the grey ashen skin we know they do when first waking up from the coma do not be deceived. All turned display amazing skills as a synthesis of corrupted nanite, and human. They use a primitive language, retain high cognition, thinking skills, good memory, and are able to master tools. A turned will not fall for the same trap twice, and in fact, are known to even make traps to capture humans.

Each turned is a union of a personality representing the corrupted nanites within them, and a twisted remnant of the host personality. Each turned is capable of a telepathic union with other members of their species. They are all linked by the mysterious hierarchy known as tones of which are four in number. They enforce order via a strange orchestra of whispers, and musical tones hence their name. For all intents, and purposes the turned have achieved functional immortality with only the most severe, and overwhelming trauma overwhelming their abilities to regenerate and keep alive the host.

Death has no meaning to the turned as the nanites can simply transport them over to another host, and very quickly if one isn't wearing the proper protective gear. Some turned appear to possess the memories of multiple lifetimes of experience from the different hosts they possessed. We have done autopsies, and internally the majority of organs rot away into a black liquid while some are kept for bodily survival. So the transformation isn't just skin deep as some originally thought. The black liquid itself can be used as saliva, and once a person is bitten they are essentially marked for life.

The turned are content to allow these humans to get away for a time but mark them like cattle. Eventually, they will come for them regardless of where they are or what else is happening. The turned despite being mockeries of humanity carry on aspects of their old self such as congregating in the churches they once worshipped in or workplaces they came to each morning.

Current Situation: This corruption progressed amazingly fast over the course of five years. The U.S walled itself off, but apparently, this will have been for nothing if you fail in your current objective. Letting the world die in exchange for our safety, and security will mean nothing if this breakthrough starts in Arboria. Failure is not an option here for we have to draw the line in the sand in Arboria. So do your jobs or live with the consequences of millions of lives at risk.
While Arboria is for all intents, and purposes doomed your characters, and group do not have to be. For every person that chooses to end it all dies due to some condition they have or is murdered by you in pursuit of your group's survival, the ending will be affected. There is no truly good or evil ending, but the costs you endure will become apparent at the ending especially in what happens in it. While there are good, and evil choices morality and endings sometimes have to be grey. Will you commit to the greatest good or the good that concerns only you, and yours? The choice is yours.
The actions, and choices don't just affect you or how the roleplay ends, but how the model city ends. The city is doomed, but depending on how dark or light the ending is the citizens don't have to share the same fate. If you can resist your impulses long enough to not sabotage the city wantonly more people might get the chance to get out of the city. Of course, if you decide to indulge in your impulses then the city becomes a chaotic hellscape even faster. Making the finale much harder on those of you who come to the ending...so remember that choices have consequences.
This city being a corporate model city isn't just a model of corporate governance, but also of the technology they develop. It has access to technologies not used by other parts of the states primarily due to their experimental nature. This city lately has undergone the "retro-chic" of the 1950s, and early 1960s as mandated by the U.S Department of culture. The cities location on an island and its use as a model city have somewhat of a more sinister purpose to it, however. It's no wonder some anti-corporate resistance might argue the island is one giant experiment about to commence.

This is Doctor Abigail Wardens log,

Day 39,

We....never meant for this to get so far out of control as it has. The situation in the city is beyond help at this point, and my superiors are suggesting evacuation to a ship waiting to take us to the mainland. After we spend several weeks in decontamination of course...while a precaution I have seen every reason to justify such a long time. If this disease ever got out into the mainland U.S it would devastate it within a matter of months. None of us ever anticipated the disease would breach the strict quarantine measures placed on the United States.

That is because it isn't a disease, but a living breathing organism that is corrupting the very nanites we all have. How ironic...in order to prevent the next wave of pandemics, and to adjust humanity to the radiation from the atomic war we have unwittingly doomed ourselves to this fate. The nanites were supposed to ensure humanity could live happy, healthy, and long lives...instead they are now being corrupted by this thing "turning" us into monsters. Of course, the turned aren't monsters...they can think, act, and anticipate actions. They have a civilization of some sorts and are run by a hierarchy. Humanity is slowly being turned, and replaced by an entirely new organism...this is not what we intended at all.

We never meant for this to happen...we were just trying to help rebuild the human race. We never meant to cause a scenario like this to occur...now much of the world is under their control. The United States is next in line if it doesn't find a way to contain the spread fast. We need to just leave...we cannot help these people anymore. The military just needs to obliterate this entire island with one strike, and hope nothing escapes. If anything does escape then it might very well be the end of the human race.

Doctor Abigail Warden signing out.

Day 7,

This is Doctor Martin reporting from the office in Arboria...I think we might have an outbreak here in the city. Over the past few days, I have accepted several patients displaying the same symptoms and sent several of them home thinking they initially were just dealing with a really lasting case of the flu. Going over the cases some 64 in total by now I believe that I have made a terrible mistake, and have contacted the CDC in Seattle for instructions on what to do. I have also contacted superiors over at the city hospital and given them the names. Apparently, teams have already gone out to find those they can in order to enact quarantine.

How the hell did this disease even breach our defenses? We enacted nationwide quarantine, and let most of the world die or turn into those things. As far as I know, they don't swim so how the hell did it spread here? We are on an island and should have had the safest spot in case the mainland began to fall. I suppose it is only ironic that the model city is the first in the United States to fall to this damn plague...hopefully its the last place as well.

Teams are already setting up quarantine stations in certain buildings to keep an eye on things. For now, we do not want the public becoming afraid as fear spreads like wildfire. If people are getting together and trying to leave in a chaotic mass then the risk for infection leaving this island becomes far too great. The City government, for now, wants to contain the situation, and evacuate people once they are given the clear. I sure hope this works or else we just all might be screwed.

Doctor Martin,

Out

Nanites


Nanites are central to this roleplay because of the fact everyone, and everything has them. In the early '70s, Japanese scientist Mako Iwamatsu helped developed the first prototype nanites as a way to combat the polio pandemic gripping the world at the time. By 1973 the nanites equipped with a vaccine for polio dispersed all over the globe thanks to the help of Holder Industries. When the atomic war commenced on December 7th, 1978 a billion people would be dead thanks to the war. Nanites were modified, and released globally to combat the effects of radiation, and prevent further death by radiation.

As a result, nearly everything from multicellular to single-celled organisms contains traces of nanites.

Class I: The normal nanites they work with the bodies of their hosts, and are considered relatively benign. Class ones are primarily handed out at birth, and those with compromised immune systems are given booster shots containing nanites to lengthen their quality of life.

Class II: Higher level nanites primarily given as treatments for cancer, and other major diseases. They first got their start treating those who were unable to walk due to polio or breath without the help of iron lungs. Since they have use in trauma, recovery, and intensive surgeries it is quite a regular occurrence to see hospitals bringing in huge shipments of them.

Class III: In 1991 the first case of sentient and sapient nanites came out to the news following reports of nearly dead famine victims in Africa seemingly able to recover to complete health. Studies done by the mega-corporations who sent those nanites found out that somehow the nanites in their relief shipments developed individual personalities, empathy, and high intelligence. This allowed them to work together within the famine sufferers, and ultimately save their lives.

Class IV: Highly intelligent nanites that do not just work to aid the host, and keep them alive, but work with the host. Studies found evidence of this class of nanites infiltrating the host brain and even communicating with them. One deleterious effect is noted in that multiple nanite intelligence attempting to converse with the host can overwhelm them if they aren't careful.

Class V: Discovered in 1995 these nanites merge their individual intelligence into one collective hivemind for the greater benefit of the nanites, and the host. As a result, this limits stress on the host and leaves the host only having to handle themselves, and the nanite hivemind.

Class VI: A corruption discovered within the Peoples Commonwealth of Britain in December 1995. The nanite hivemind is infected with a rogue program, and commences corrupting the host inside, and out. This "strain" either results in the host dying, turning into a new entity, or becoming an anomaly. Within a short period of time, the Peoples Commonwealth of Britain collapses and is placed under strict quarantine by the European Federation. Oddly within a set amount of time, the strain disappears only to reappear in the Republic of Japan by 2006.

As a result of this latest incident, the majority of the world is either dead, dying, turned, or has mutated into something else. Currently, the United States is under a nationwide quarantine safe for now from the fate the majority of the world is suffering.


The Infection


Mistakenly called the Japanese Flu by the majority of people only a few know its true origins. The corruption does spread like a disease, however, and this has attributed to a highly germaphobic culture within the United States. The infection itself has several stages, and depending upon several factors can take less than a week or more to overwhelm someone. Once the infection enters the body there is no known cure or vaccine you can only hope something malfunctions, and you turn into one of the anomalies. Otherwise you will likely die or become one of the "turned".

Stage I: In stage one you begin to feel slightly weak, but pass it off as possibly a cold. A cough, runny nose, and headaches will appear, but not be persistent enough to warrant a doctors visit yet.

Stage II: At this stage, your cough will become noticeable, and your nose will start running quite frequently. Headaches start occurring frequently, and you will run a slight fever.

Stage III: By this point, most people will head to the doctors trying to get some relief. Your bones will start to ache, you will have a sore throat, and will have a higher fever.

Stage IV: By this point, your headaches will happen in painful episodes, and it will hurt to move. Chest pain, nausea, vomiting, bodily rashes, and reddened eyes are noticeable. This is most likely when people will try, and enter the hospital.

Stage V: You will have slight weight loss, stomach pain, an incredibly high fever, and begin to bleed periodically from your eyes, nose, mouth, and ears. You will also start suffering hallucinations, and delusions as the corrupted nanites are beginning the transformative phases of the disease.

Stage VI: As fever, and other symptoms wrack your body you will no doubt be in quarantine by this point. The corrupted nanites begin setting up the stage for the transformation of the body. They will determine if you are suitable as a continued host or not.

Stage VII: For those not deemed suitable for the host transformation they will undergo massive spikes in delusions, hallucinations, and fevers. Ultimately the hallucinations are all the same with deceased friends, and family encouraging acceptance of death so the person can be free.

Stage VIII: Those not suitable for hosts will expire, and the nanites will turn their body into a factory for reproduction of nanites carrying the corruption. For those deemed suitable, they will undergo a comatose phase, and the corruption will assume direct control over the body.


The Infected


Even if your character is infected it does not mean it is the ultimate end for your character. Instead, they will be given new opportunities that regular characters will not be. An infected character can try, and find ways to inhibit their infections progress or even deliberately try and infect people out of spite. Ultimately the corruption will progress, and debilitating effects will start to happen to your character. You will be given the choice to let your character die or become one of the turned.


The Turned


*With proper applications, and permissions you can play as a turned should your character decide to accept the transformation.

1) Infiltrators: Turned that upon exiting the comatose phase appear perfectly normal, and can even blend in with society for a time. Infiltrators are those who were initially exposed to patient zero, but often when the need arises the nanite hivemind present in them will make an infiltrator when needed. Infiltrators have an underlying desire to unconsciously spread the infection by going into crowded areas, but sometimes the nanite hivemind will make itself known to an infiltrator. This has lead to the creation of two classes of infiltrators.

Class I: These infiltrators are completely unaware of their condition, and unknowingly infect people left, and right. Whether patient zero is found, killed, or turned the overall corrupted hivemind need new patient zeros to continue the work infecting people. As a result, you will see infection rates spike for a time due to the presence of infiltrators. Authorities as a result now have protocols in place to scan anyone and everyone for infection. Countermeasure teams are deployed in infected areas to determine if someone is directing infection efforts whether they know it or not.

Class II: The infiltrators who are aware, and despite this newfound awareness of their true condition will continue on with infecting people. Most infiltrators who do become aware will either try to hide or take their lives causing the hivemind to take full control. These infiltrators may act completely normal but are sinister agents of corruption. Whether continuing their mission as a means of "personal survival" or because they believe in the purpose is unknown.

2) Newborns: These turned are called newborns primarily because of how new they are. When an infected host awakes from their comatose state they don't immediately realize they have been turned. Instead, they will attempt to leave as the corrupted nanites amp up a biological drive within the host to meet their friends and family. This is all a matter of deception of course as within the newborns the nanites are preparing a powerful cocktail of infection. Once the newborns expel the infection cocktail from their bodies they will find a nice quiet place to lay low.

Newborns will begin within a day to experience their skin turning incredibly pale, and experiencing sensitivity to light. Their eyes will begin to adopt a yellow coloring and become like a predator. Even their blood will turn a noticeably dark color. As a result of this initial transformation newborns are quite weak, but make up for by ingesting massive amounts of food. This allows them to continue production of the infectious cocktail as a method of assaulting people. The turned's personality begins to undergo radical changes due to their connection with the "command hivemind" the turned seem to follow.

3) Drone: This class makes up the majority of the turned hierarchy, and consist of the working class. The drones are newborns who have progressed enough to outgrowing their need to serve as a method of spreading the infection. Instead, they begin to converge in highly infected areas and construct a system known as "nests".

* Drones are also the first turned that are incredibly hard to kill as nanites work overtime to regenerate any, and all grievous wounds. As a result, it often takes overwhelming trauma to end a turned that is a drone or above.

4) Catchers: Turned whose primary purpose is to tag a potential host by scratching or biting them. While this doesn't infect the person it doesn't mark them allowing a team with multiple catchers to during a more convenient time to capture the victim. Once done the victim is brought back to the nest the catchers place them in organic pods which serve as an infection stasis chamber.

5) Servants: Highly intelligent turned often comprised of doctors, researchers, and others who make up the intellectual caste for the turned. They are placed in charge of the drones and care for the nests in order to ensure proper efficiency. Once the right amount of victims is brought in the servants activate the pods, and begin a process that quickly infects, and turns the victim in a few days.

4) Champions: The champions are those who serve as the military caste of the turned. They are made primarily in response to aggression by the military. Due to the adaptive nature of the turned they begin creating turned that have an organic armor on them.

5) Primarch: Think of them as the administrators of the turned, and this is known by human scientists due to the fact that primarchs start appearing once a certain percentage of the human population is converted.

6) Omegas: A form of anomaly that has given into the hivemind, and uses their unique abilities to serve the turned. They are capable of fully independent thought, are incredibly dangerous, and can command any turned in their vicinity to aid them.

7) The Tones: They are four in number, but representing the four who lead the hivemind by imposing an order unique when it comes to hiveminds. They get the name tones due to the fact each has a specific musical tone they use to signal orders and conversations to the turned masses.

Important Note: All turned retain their original personality, but as they progress it becomes so twisted that many turned will no longer recognize their old "selves" anymore. This has lead to a phenomenon of the turned operating on an entirely different system of morality, and ethics than non-turned humans.



The Hivemind


The Hivemind represents the unique connection the turned share with one another. Scientists believe the hivemind is merely the end result of the connections established between humanity, and the nanites used to keep them alive. It is believed that initially the turned operated as an individual mass which explains the disorganized nature of the British epidemic. Ultimately since all are connected, a phenomenon began where the turned began to assault each other. This is speculated as a form of population control due to the disorganization present within the collective.

The tones enforce order via musical sympathy giving time to those they deem worthy to speak within the hivemind. The nanites constantly exchange information back and forth allowing the tones to devise strategies to adapt against human aggression. Ultimately the hivemind isn't just the collective force, and will of the turned, but also represents individual ones as well. Each turned is, in essence, a fusion of the host personality though twisted, and the localized nanite hivemind which begins to form their own personality. These two elements must compete with each other while also adhering to the leadership structure.


MEGA-CORPORATIONS and Others


You came to this city because someone on the mainland sponsored you, and as such you must serve a purpose in some shape or form regardless of the career. Your career choice plays into your survival options, and just what you can do especially with your talents when city order collapses.

- Holder Industries -

You are part of the biggest mega-corporation on the planet. Its primary ventures involve the pursuit of nearly everything involved with science and finding a human use for it. It was this companies very terraforming experiment that made this island to begin, and their idea to turn it into a model corporate city.

- Careers of the sciences are most likely to be found at Holden Industries.
- Holden Industries is a stable career path even if not the most exciting. They employ fifty percent of the city as it is.
- The higher the rank the greater the pressure you will face from the regional headquarters in Seattle.

- Ackerman Pharmaceuticals -

The second biggest employer in the city they hold influence due to the fact they monopolized the drugs market. They are at the forefront of testing on willing human subjects, and the mentally ill for the "good of society".

- Ackerman pharmaceuticals hire most of the nurses, doctors, therapists, psychiatrists, and others like this in the city.
- Ackerman pharmaceuticals dominate the fields of medicine and exploratory procedures.
- Expect quotas from Ackerman's regional headquarters especially concerning experiments to be pretty high.
- Nearly everything is an experiment for the company in some shape or form.

- Vista Agricorp -

A relatively minor agricultural company that began to experiment with self-sufficient food technology, and ways to stop the reoccurring famines, and useless crop yields (due to high radioactivity). As a result of their success, they exploded into importance by the mid-1990s.

- Anything to do with agriculture is pretty much dominated by Vista Agricorp.
- Vista Agricorp has their hands heavily in utilities due to the fact they help stabilize water sources.
- Vista Agricorp has reduced the need for garbage sites within the city heavily by finding a way to recycle everything.

- Renault Firms -

Originally a French firm in the European Federation they focused on weapons technology, city infrastructure, and defenses. They went under in the Eurasian war of the mid-1990s. The company was for all intents, and purposes destroyed in Europe following a Longden Technologies raid on their Paris headquarter at the midpoint of the war. Survivors recruited by Longden rebuilt the company within the U.S.

- Renault Firms exclusively focuses on careers in defense technology, infrastructure improvements, and weapons.
- They are to thank for developments in measures to battle infection and enforce a strict quarantine.
- They provide weaponry to the Sector Authority to combat regular civilian threats.
- They also provide scanners to determine infection, uniforms that can resist infection attempts, and other anti-turned materials.

- Rex Energy -

You can thank Rex Energies for keeping the lights on. While primarily focused on atomic energy the events of 1978 have given such sources a bad rap. As a result, they have expanded into other energy sources, and in the process become the dominant energy provider for the continent of North America.

- Careers that deal with keeping the city lit up, for the most part, can be found here.
- As the city collapses you will face stress in where to allocate power.
- On the brightside your job will be so important your work place will be highly guarded from the turned.


- Longden Technologies -


If you can think of any of the wonderful technology found in the home of today its most likely got a Longden logo on it. Although Longden himself is in Boston working on medical technology the focus here is on the technology of domestic use.

- Careers in robotics are more than likely to be found here.
- Longden Technology workers are more likely to have access to some of the most advanced technology in the roleplay. Though given the nature of the company its more often than not a possible experiment as well.
- Longden Technologies is more than happy to provide the city with all sorts of robotics, but don't be surprised if they talk back to you.
- Flying drones permeate the skies of Arboria these days courtesy of Longden Technology.


- Arboria City Government -

Some would argue the city government doesn't serve a purpose, and it should be run by a corporate group, but they would be wrong. Regardless of the usefulness, the model city is still a city, and people need the pretense of a civilian government.

- Careers in governance, transportation, city maintenance, and utilities will be plentiful here though don't expect too good of pay.
- Arguably one of the more sane institutions in this city all things considered.
- The downside being beside pay you will also get to deal with your average citizen especially if it concerns bills.
- You will be faced with tough decisions on when to quarantine, and evacuate areas if you can get to them fast enough that is.
- Eventually you will lose control of the city, but how that happens is up to you.

- Sector Authority -

Essentially sector authority was originally planned as a nominal civil service similar to mall cops, but issues arose in the early days that required a decent police force, and decent equipment.

- Careers in law enforcement can be found here.
- Access to heavy weapons, and gear is permitted with the right circumstances.
- You will be the first wave to try and contain the infection and fight the turned. Casualties are likely going to be high, and eventually, you will be placed on peacekeeping tasks in safer areas.
- You will also be given the option of constructing quarantine chambers to check for infection to ensure the infection doesn't spread.
- Before the city collapses you will also have the option of establishing field commands to areas that need the sector authority the most.
- Sector Authority has the responsibility of establishing safehouses for survivors which will provide useful, but temporary safe havens for traveling survivors.
- Sector Authority also has options through combating the infection, and the turned through operation missions. Their success or failure can hasten or delay the collapse.

- Firewatch/Medwatch -

The Firewatch, and Medwatch are the cities privatized version of EMS, and Fire Services. Though they work in the same manner as sector authority they are of great importance to the city nonetheless.

-Careers in fire fighting, ambulance services, emergency dispatching, and other auxiliary roles are found here.
- As the infection spreads, and order is stretched you will need to keep the city from bursting into flames, and the hospitals from being overrun by injured people because of riots.
- Temporary command stations can be established in high need areas.
- You will be in charge of evacuation shelters, and supply depots during the early days.
- You can also establish areas for emergency services radio which will greatly help any survivors in overrun areas.


- Black Crest Securities -

A private army of mercenaries that has enough men, money, and weapons to supply several wars. That said it often provides exclusive security contracts to high-value corporate properties as well.

-Careers in private security enforcement can be found here.
-Careers involved in espionage, high-intensity conflicts, and disease prevention can be found here.
-Initially, most black crest presence in the city will be teams guarding high-value property, but when the disease is made known the presence of black crest will increase greatly.
-After a certain point during the peak of the infection, they will replace the sector authority, and begin launching high-risk missions to combat the plague and infection.
- Black Crest Securities can also be given bounties to take out discontent citizens who are stirring rebellions. Ultimately the goal is control by any means necessary, and regardless of ethics.


- The Military -

The military presence in Arboria is nominal, and mainly related to the contracts with the government. However, once the city begins to collapse they will try their best to evacuate citizens.

- The military will primarily create safe zones, and aid in operations to purge the turned.
- If the situation gets bad enough they will bombard portions of the city by plane or artillery.
- The military will attempt to rescue as many citizens as possible despite Black Crest objections.
- They will get the opportunity to launch rescue, and evacuation missions.
- They will also get the opportunity to launch reclamation or purge missions as well.


- Freelancers -

Freelancers are those who run businesses or work in businesses that are only nominally subjected to the mega-corporations.
- Though mostly free of the mega-corporations unless you are working for one of the bigger "independent" businesses don't expect the pay to be that well.
-You have the highest flexibility when it comes to your scheduling however, and this will allow you to take advantage of more opportunities.
- Freelancers ultimately can make choices while others cannot, but don't be reckless about it.


Work Shifts


The Model City runs on a system of shifts, and as such someone is always working. This can, and will provide for unique opportunities especially as the crisis escalates to an unbearable degree.

Each day is divided into 3 phases:

Morning Shift
6 AM - 2 PM
* Often the most desired shift, but priority is often handed to those with families.

Afternoon/Evening Shift
2 PM - 10 PM
* Those who came to the city without families can most likely expect to work this shift.

Night Shift
10 PM - 6 AM
*An unfortunate reality is that someone always has to work night hours...it could be worse. The night shift will bring benefits, and dangers given the turneds disposition toward darkness. It can also give one the ability to raid for supplies in areas worse off.

Each RL day, we advance by 8 IC hours, or one day phase.
During a workers shifts, you will often focus on a task during the initial part of the roleplay. As things advance and get worse you will have access to additional options. If the order of the city collapses then players can spend their time fully committed to whatever they want so long as they keep their survival and the groups in mind. The higher your card access the greater the privilege, and if your boss somehow dies...you might be up for a promotion. Just keep an eye on your health since it can be the difference between life, and death.


Access Card Permissions


Due to the nature of the model city all citizens are given a level of access cards which entail a permission level to access certain areas of the city. The access cards were instituted not only as a method of control but also partly as a social experiment by the cities investors to test out certain theories of human psychology.

There are 4 Classes of citizens:

- 0 Level

The Executives

Those with access to zero level cards can get anywhere in the model city, and as such there are only a few actual people of that rank here. With a zero level card, you can access anywhere at any time without interference from guards.

- 1st Level
The Administrators

This class represents the political, social, and scientific elite of the model city. In exchange for such privileges, they are expected to meet their quotas and even handle decisions for the greater good of the city. All that said this position comes with such great risk that very few would dare to disobey direct orders from their perspective headquarters in the pacific northwest.

1-A Cards: Those who handle directives, and tasks of companies involved in medical or scientific affairs. They also represent some of the top doctors of the city, and with such power will be handed tasks to complete by their perspective headquarters.

1-B Cards: The City Council, on the surface, while the model city is corporate in its nature ultimately there is a semblance of civilian order. While the City Council is at the mercy of various corporate interests they do have considerable power.

1-C Cards: Cards held by the Sector Authority Chief, and his direct lieutenants. The sector authority is responsible for policing the city on behalf of their investors, and if need be can request military grade armor, and weapons from Black Crest Securities. Ultimately their job keeping the peace will become far more difficult as the city collapses under its own weight. The heads of the Firewatch (Fire Services), and Medwatch (EMS), and their lieutenants also have access here.

1-D: Administrators with this card deal primarily with mega-corporations whose primary goals focus on areas such as industry, agriculture, and robotics.

1-E Cards: Administrators in this class are independent businessmen who reached heights of importance. Ultimately the mega-corporations run this city, and often independent businesses of great importance will often face hostile takeovers or be integrated into the greater arrangement. As a result, these administrators maintain their businesses at the expense of becoming another part of the corporate monopoly in some shape or form.


-2nd Level
The Middle Men.

Those with this level card represent the middlemen such as important political figures, top researchers, security commanders, and others. Their jobs involve careers positions below the administrators, and as such make up the "middle class" of the city.

2-A Cards: Held by those in middle-level positions at mega-corporations involved in medical or scientific affairs.

2-B Cards: Held by those who run the government bureaucracy for the city council.

2-C Cards: Held by those in the sector authority who are below the chiefs lieutenants. Also held by those below the perspective heads of Firewatch, and Medwatch, and their lieutenants.

2-D Cards: Held by midlevel workers at agricultural, robotic, or industrial mega-corporations.

2-E Cards: Held by those who work midlevel positions in independent businesses, and report to the administrators.

- 3rd Level
The Lower Workers

The cards here are the most commonplace given the third level represents the masses within the city.

3-A Cards: Held by the run of the mill workers in mega-corporations that deal in medicine, and science.

3-B Cards: Held by the run of the mill government worker such as clerks, those who perform utility jobs, make sure things are up to code, or even check out infrastructure complaints.

3-C Cards: Held by the run of the mill officers, and deputies within the sector authority. Run of the mill workers for firewatch, and medwatch.

3-D Cards: Held by run of the mill workers at mega-corporations involved in industry, robotics, and agriculture.

3-E: Held by the run of the mill workers in independent businesses.

- 4th Level
The Expendables

Those in this category are here because they chose to be here or their life just sucks in general.

4-A Cards: This card is held particular by minorities who serve in the outlier jobs due to the racist socio-political system against them. Only those of some importance or considered assets by corporations have any hope of escaping a life that at best is domestic servitude, and at worst is incredibly backbreaking labor.

4-B Cards: This card is held by those with significant mental illnesses that prohibit them from the lives they used to have. Many either choose this category or are placed here by their families hoping medication will alleviate their conditions. Those with 4-B cards are often subjected to treatments of any routine to alleviate them ranging from nanite injections in the brain, lobotomies, and more.

4-C Cards: This card is held by the cities official test subjects. Since no prisoners are allowed in the city people have to maintain usefulness somehow. Those prisoners who sign the appropriate waivers will in exchange for getting to stay in the city be allowed an unusual degree of freedom, and high pay. The tests performed on any given subject varies, but the incentives make up for the high possibilities of a greatly reduced quality of life.

4-D Cards: Perhaps the most controversial card of all is held by those who are contracted by the city to serve as prostitutes, and escorts. In an effort to cut down on pimping, and prostitution of the sort that makes the city look bad an agreement was made. In exchange for signing up with a city program, and becoming registered with the police prostitutes, and escorts can work a job with guaranteed safety. Long gone is the day of a prostitute who can be gutted in the night. Prostitutes both male, and female can work a job that pays well and covers them materially in exchange for losing other parts of themselves.

Due to the repression of homosexuality within the city, the government brothels are where such "lifestyles" often flourish. Despite the perceived disgrace of the profession the people involved make a lot of money, and the government makes sure they stay healthy with weekly checkups. Regardless these benefits come with the fact you will be forever marked from the rest of society by working here...so choose wisely.


Actions and Shifts


-Now for all intents and purposes your characters have things to do. During each phase of the day (morning, afternoon, and night). Your character can either dedicate themselves to the work at the place of work or travel to another location in the city. Interacting with characters present at a variety of locations is good for your mental health.

- Avoiding shift work or performing other actions will become more, and more likely as the infection ravages the city. Its highly unlikely that you might want to go to work in an area heavily under control of the infection. Of course, the incentives for going to work can be just as good as skipping them depending on the circumstances.

Types of actions:

There are 3 types of actions:

[b]1. Character Interaction
The most basic thing you can do is converse with people. You never know just what kind of things you can find out by simply talking to one another. From setting up trade between groups to assisting in missions. Of course, don't expect to be able to talk across the map as that simply isn't possible. Be wary though for if some of you are conspiring remember to ensure that you are truly alone when engaging or performing forbidden actions.

[b]2. World Interaction
From exploring different locations, exchanging items or asking for help from others, and searching for clues or resource caches. These are count in regards to world interaction.

[b]3. Combat
As the city devolves beyond the point of no return combat may go from being optional to not a choice at all. Combat involves more than just fighting as sometimes you have to set up ambush points or traps. It can also involve people detonating explosives or destroying objects of some importance.


Items and resources


While there are many items present in the city the most common type presented to you by the corporations are given below Food

Your people need to eat otherwise you will starve, and that's, not exactly a great way to die

Emergency Rations: Food kits containing bread, a nutrient paste made of vegetables & fruit, a bottle of water, and alcohol. Emergency kits are made by Vista Agricorp and sold at their store. These kits as the name suggest are meant to be used in the absence of food as they contain nanite solutions to aid off starvation. Later on, they will be available at relief stations across the city.

Warm Meal: Soup along with the meal of the day found at the central cafeteria for the city. Warm meals can add something special to your day as a whole, and make it a lot less unbearable. Each shift is allowed access to the buffet in the central cafetaria, but they aren't the most elite of foods. Only those who can afford it can find something truly special.

Liquid Rations: Nanite solutions to substitute food for those unable to properly digest food anymore. It comes in a variety of flavors and has often been compared to the liquid solutions they fed astronauts back in the day. The hospital is stocked up on these primarily because they are easy to dispense.

Really Nice Food: Food meant for fairly special occasions or easily accessible to those who can afford it. Even at the end of days, there is still room for luxurious types of coffee, cake, and sandwiches. Not just the regular kinds they serve as the buffet in the cafeteria either mind you, but the really nice kind.

#Medicine

Nanite Solutions: Vials of nanites dedicated to fixing the human body of illnesses, and infections. Can be found in the hospital or some advanced first aid kits, but their presence will become common in relief stations.

First Aid Kits: Bandage your wounds, check your temperature, control your fever, and other things needed for emergencies.

Advanced first aid kits: A kit that goes above, and beyond in helping you when needed the most.

Sleeping pills: Pills to aid your nights sleep albeit incredibly addictive if overuse occurs.

Euthanasia pills: Pills that induce a painless, and quick death as a preferable alternative to a violent or horrifying death.

Weaponry

Standard service munitions: Provided to all who serve the city or have a registered firearm. Restrictions on the amount purchased are enforced unless you are in an occupation that needs these munitions.

Firearms: Standard service weapons either owned by those administering security of the city or those who have registered firearms before coming to the city.

Traps: Devices used to distract other people such as those coming after you or even harm them. While traps can be reset multiple times depending on their type people will learn. The turned will only fall for a particular trap once before realizing what it is after seeing it once.

Illegal munition[i]: Munitions made in someones private home, and as such highly illegal if used during the cities more orderly days.

[i]Illegal firearm:
A non-registered firearm made in someone's private home. If discovered such an offense could get one reduced to a test subject or exiled to the mainland. The most common type found is a rifle or pistol.

Mist bombs: Bombs that spray a certain mist that can depend on the makers intent disperse a noxious smell or a deadly gas. Mostly used to repel human enemies or overwhelm the turned.

Timebomb: An illegal explosive made by a dissident with one purpose in mind.

Explosive: High-grade weaponry used against other humans or the turned. Of course, improper usage can be a matter of life and death.

Poisons: Chemical cocktails developed and weaponized for use against other humans or the turned.

Melee Weapons: While some weapons of this category are registered, and legal a lot of them aren't, and for good reason.

Quarantine Station: Camps set up to detain infected, and keep them out of hospitals.
Tools

Special Stations

Crafting Stations: Spending some time building this up will be worth it as it will allow you to make objects for your use, and your groups use. Melee weapons and firearms are often more illicit uses for crafting stations.

Chemical Stations: Those invested in the scientific or medical field can develop medicine, poisons, or even explosives here if given enough time.

Relief Station: Stations set up to provide food, water, and first aid to those who are needing a place of respite while evacuating to another area. If the cities condition gets worse then you are more likely to find relief stations abandoned or overrun.

Evacuation Station: Hubs placed by sector authority to urge citizens to centralize people in areas that will keep them away from danger. Evacuation stations have a high potential of being overrun before a successful evacuation can commence.

Safe Havens: Often areas that are able to withstand attacks by the turned, and thus serve to protect people till evacuation.

Operations

Sector Authority

Location Quarantine: Sector Authority will initiate procedures to cordon off an area until proper teams can be sent in to assess individuals for infection.

Arrest of Infected: Potential infected will be arrested by sector authority units equipped to handle them. Large numbers of infected will be moved into the back of specialized vehicles and taken off to quarantine stations.

Location Raid: Militarized sector authority will raid a location in an attempt to combat human dissidents or the turned.

Drone Riot Control: Sector Authority will deploy drone robotics to neutralize rioters in a specific area or location via gas that causes temporary paralysis.

Black Crest Security

Misting Drones: Drone robotics carrying mist bombs will launch off into a highly affected area, and deploy them prior to a patrol.

Patrol: Black Crest Security units will patrol an area, and ensure curfew is being followed. They will deal with any humans out after curfew, and maintain order strictly.

Infected purge: Black Crest Securities is cleared to purge an area of a high infected population.

Turned Purge: An area is selected by Black Crest Security for a purge targeting the turned. This is mostly done to keep an area stable for some time longer so it doesn't fall completely.

Area Purge: Units of Black Crest have gotten clearance to purge an entire area of all life in an attempt to control the spread of the turned. Several black Crest teams will deploy to ensure the job is done house by house, and block by block. If successful they will militarize the area as an area of control in the rest of the city.

Military

Evacuation: The military will begin evacuating safe areas after intensive infection screenings.

Bombardment: The military will attempt to stem a turned offensive by launching an artillery bombardment of the zone.

Infected Screenings: The military will host infection screenings in a safe area to ensure populations there are free of infection.

Relief operations: The military will ship in a convoy full of necessary supplies to ensure an area is well stocked. These operations are purely humanitarian, and not aimed at curbing the infection.

Full bombardment: Bombardment by plane, and artillery positions of an area will commence if the military command is desperate to stem the tide of turned.

The system of Authority versus Decay

While the city is doomed actions can be taken such as the one above in order to maintain authority, and thus the integrity of the city. Some actions though have no intention of preserving authority wholly and can be undertaken in desperation. Once an area falls completely it will attribute to the overall decay of the city, and thus things will start looking a whole lot darker for the people of the city. Should an area be cleared of infected, and turned then it adds to the authority. In summary, authority keeps the appearance of society for a time while decay hastens the collapse of society.


The Anomalies


The estimates for the infection are eighty percent with forty percent turned, and forty percent dead. There is, of course, the question of the remaining twenty percent, and that is where things start to get abnormal since they react differently to the corrupted nanites than everyone else.

The Immune

The immune are a rare bunch to find with scientists estimating that there are 100 of them for every 100 million people on the planet, and possibly elsewhere. Some of the immune are that way because their bodies couldn't handle accommodating the changes the nanites would make to their body so they never got injected. Yet the majority of them have nanites, but doctors cannot figure out why corruption cannot penetrate them, but some suspect that nanites are slowly adjusting to find ways to combat the corruption. Any time news of an immune is reported teams are assembled immediately to escort them to secure facilities. Whatever is done to them if the rumors are true it isn't pleasant in the least.

The Carriers


The Carriers may seem immune at first, but they most certainly aren't, and must be avoided at all costs. Somehow during the process of infection, the hivemind or the corrupted nanites in that body decide to start affecting the host mind. They slowly encourage the host not to stay mobile and seek out new communities for the purpose of integrating them. Once the person is trusted people start suddenly falling ill as the host becomes a factory for corrupted nanites. The corrupted nanites reward the host will hallucinations of euphoria, and other things to keep them in line.

You can often tell carriers apart from most people due to their slowly growing dependence on the hallucinations. This addiction comes at a cost of them giving up food, water, and even some of the basics of human life. Of course, it is the nanites interest to keep them alive so they will do so by any means necessary. The normal lifespan of a carrier is expected to be at two to three years tops before the nanites decide they are no longer useful anymore. The nanites in what seems to be an act of mercy leave their host one last hallucination to focus on while the body shuts down painlessly.

The time-bombs

A somewhat more insidious version of the carrier since they don't display the telltale symptoms of being a carrier at all. In fact, none of them know corrupted nanites are silently waiting in their body for a signal to activate. These people seem healthy, and often pass a lot of scans, but a biopsy or two will reveal they are in fact not really healthy at all. The corrupted nanites suppress their impulses until the right moment and then activating rapidly turning the victim within three days. The corrupted nanites flood the areas the person is living at infecting everyone in their wake, and scientists believe this is how the virus escaped Japan and went to the mainland.

The Gifted


The Turned can take a lot of punishment before going down for good, but if a viable host is nearby the corrupted nanites will flee en masse, and form a swarm to attack a new host to penetrate it. This is often why flamethrowers have gone back to use again to burn the bodies immediately after they go down. The gifted are people often not lucky enough or quick enough to flee a desperate nanite storm going after them. The nanite storm will lift them up in the air fast, and run away with their new host to a safe place to turn them. Sometimes the process goes a bit off the rails and causes two hosts to occupy the body.

Instead of the invading host personality taking over the new body the two will either merge or operate independently struggling to control the body until the two come to an agreement. The person will look normal, but will not age becoming functionally immortal like all turned, and have access to their healing abilities allowing them to take quite a bit of punishment. The biggest weakness they will have will often be themselves as the two sides are prone to constant bickering. Other turned consider them freaks, and will do their best to avoid having anything to do with them. While normal humans will simply think of them as mentally ill until they get someone angry enough for a gun to go off, and cause everyone to gasp in horror as any wound they have regenerates.

The Symptomatic

Take the gifted, and turn it up to eleven those under the label symptomatic are people that absorb the personality trying to invade them rather than the quandary the gifted face. They gain the healing abilities and become immortal as well, but they also gain access to the hivemind itself something the gifted are refused access to. They start out weak, but over time with each turned they strike down they become more powerful by absorbing each new host. The more power they have the more influential they get into the hivemind ultimately bringing discord to the order of the tones. After harvesting a number of hosts however a new music appears in the hivemind lead by them, and order reappears within the hierarchy of the turned.

This group after a while starts to look almost like one of the turned with their skin becoming pale, and their saliva becoming an unusual color. They even wear sunglasses or colored contacts to hide their changing eye colors which are often a dead giveaway something is off with them. The symptomatic will start referring to themselves in the third person point of view and are capable of ordering turned to do anything. The strangest fact of this group is that they attract attention from unusual humans seeking their blood. The blood is known to grant those who ingest a small drop of its immortality and some odd abilities.

The first people to ingest will often be family members as the new member of the Tones fears for their families lives, and then it will be lovers, and followers. This creates an odd caste of halfway turned humans surrounding them constantly, but make no mistake they eventually harbor ill will toward special types of survivors. The gifted are viewed as rejects, and carriers as an abomination of necessity kept around only for their use until the time to throw them away comes. The immune are hunted down by the turned under their control either to kill them or make use of them somewhere else while the time-bombs are viewed with pity. No matter who this person is to you a symptomatic always becomes a tone and their first priority is to the hivemind so they will kill you if you get in their way, and interfere in their plans.]


Traits and Conditions


The regular people, anomalies, and turned may have specialized traits which give benefits or hurt them depending on what said trait is.

Plucky: You are one plucky bastard and can take several hits before going down.

Gymnastics Expert: The old training you underwent still works somewhat, and as a result you are rather limber.

Parkour Expert: You can climb buildings, and jump off high places. Of course, I wouldn't go jumping like crazy since you have a chance of being hurt.

Doctor: You went to medical school, and know how to patch people up.

Quick-witted: You can sometimes on a whim think your way out of a situation.

Bench Worker: You have the know-how, and skill to handle craftsmanship, and modification

Strong: You always were noticeably strong, and this can aid you when being forced to fight in melee battles.

Marksmanship: You actually know how to handle a weapon, and are capable of getting a shot off.

Scientist: You invested yourself in a research career of the sciences, and now have found yourself in the model city. If you choose to devote yourself to a particular field of interest you might just find something out.

Charismatic: You just have a natural glow about you that is capable of attracting followers.

Stealthy: Your parents always thought of you like a shadow sometimes given how often you surprised them...maybe its time to put that to the test.

Infected: The worst has happened the corruption has entered you. It is unknown how long you have, but as the symptoms present themselves you can deny it no longer.

Rejection: You have gained the honor of becoming a turned, and through strong willpower flat out refused to join them. The nanites are shutting down your body as we speak, but at least you will die human.

Reunion: The nanites have rejected you as host, and have decided to reunite you with deceased family members, and friends as a parting gift. You may have a day or two, but your organs are painlessly shutting down, and you will die soon. You have some comfort knowing you won't be alone soon.

Turned: Born of a twisted union of corrupted nanite, and altered flesh your dual personality of nanite, and human sometimes struggles for control over the new body you have. Regardless of those issues, you have access to a vast hivemind of knowledge, and the musical orchestra of the tones influences you greatly.

Anomaly: Something about the corruption inside of you is different. As for whether that is good or not all depends on what degree of anomaly you have.

Exhaustion: You need some sleep or else you might end up in serious trouble, and start making mistakes.

Illness: Surprisingly the corruption isn't plaguing you, but some other condition is. If it isn't chronic consider yourself lucky, and find some time to rest, and get over the condition.

Injury: You have obtained an injury while performing actions or fighting. Anything you do can be hampered depending on what the injury is, where the injury is, and how severe it is.

Paranoid: You have every reason to be...someone or something might actually be trying to kill or harm you.

The Fall of Arboria: Locations

Postby Benuty » Mon Apr 22, 2019 8:12 pm

Locations

  • Financial District: The central heart of business in its purest form when it comes down to it in the model city i.e money. The financial district contains the highest number of self-made businesses, and as a result, has far more important than when it was originally sectioned into the cities design.

      General Exchange: A massive market centered on the exchange of anything that freelancing businessmen and women hope people will find of interest in the city. For those hoping to find ways around the rationing limits, the exchange is the place to come. The sector authority begrudgingly allows such excess as a way to prevent a full-on black market.

      Business Square: A large dedicated row housing those at the top of the independent businesses market. Containing property here is seen as a sign of respect as one has moved on as an independent businessman or woman.

      Stock Exchange: While not of much importance to anyone outside the city this exchange is the beating heart of the financial district. It keeps tabs of the ebb, and flow of the market with robots who keep tabs on transactions, and issue hourly reports.

      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Emergency Services Depot: A substation used by members of the sector authority, medwatch, and fire watch personnel working on shifts outside the government district. These stations have the same supplies as each individual branches headquarters, but for the most part, are merely meant as supports. If a crisis were to overwhelm the city such areas might not last long.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.

  • Government District: Serves the model city in the most unusual of fashions. Though still corporate in some fashion it hosts a civilian government. The government district is a quaint reminder of the days before mega corporations even if it is only a twisted shell of a reminder that is.

      City Hall:Home to the various offices of government bureaucrats who work for the city, and by extension its citizens the place stands out from the rest. The central purpose of this building is to house the city council which has the power not merely because the corporations allow its existence, but also because by some extent regular civilian governance is needed.

      There are several noted areas within the City Hall.

      A) Radio Tower: Used to administer public broadcasts, and distribute city news.

      B) Council Room: The official room of civil governance for the city of Arboria.

      C) City Office Spaces: Spaces for those involved in city governance, bureaucracy, or other city matters.

      D) Media Room: Public Television area providing local, and national news as well as entertainment.

      E) Research Laboratory: Civilian employees devoted to ensuring the city health is kept in order. They work in a laboratory complex underground, but reportedly can seal the laboratory if things get too rough outside.

      F) Reception Room: A pleasant lobby for the city hall, but these days it often has a black crest security official or sector authority deputy patrolling it.

      G) City Archives: Those in need of finding historical information, old news material, and perhaps something else if they want to spend the time here.

      H) Maintenance Access: Back entrance to the building, but is most likely to have guards.

      I) Stairwell/ Elevator Shaft: Use for travel between areas, but your better have the proper clearance or prepare to be accosted by the guards.

      J) Network Mainframe: A classified room tied to the cities information, and commerce network. Damaging or destroying this room would cause serious hell to pay for anyone caught.

      K) Banknote Printing Press: Used for the resupplying of ration cards, banknotes, and the alternative currency used here in Arboria as only a few people have access to real cash.


      Sector Authority Command: The best, and brightest or the most disgruntled. Regardless they serve to enforce law, and order with a corporate tinge on things. While they are funded by the taxpayers the corporations have increased control over them specifically Longden Technologies, and Black Crest Securities. Those corporations have provided them enough robots, body armor, and weapons to fight a small war. Whether or not this helps them, in the end, is debatable since it could provide a false sense of security.

      There are several areas of note within the main command center.
      A) Rooftop Helipad: A large expansive area capable of housing several helicopters to aid in relief efforts, evacuations, or as needed operations.

      B) The Chiefs Office: The expansive office which serves as the domain for the presiding chief of sector authority.

      C) Lieutenant Offices: Spacious, and enclosed offices reserved for Sector Authority Lieutenants.

      D) Agent Offices: Individual offices for those involved in keeping the bureaucratic side of sector authority afloat. They process evidence and keep the information codexes working smoothly.

      E) Investigator/Field Deputy Offices: These offices are reserved for those who are for the most part out in the field, and need somewhere to turn near the end of their shift.

      F) Monitoring Center: This station holds the scanner drones and other robotics which buzz busily around the city keeping an eye on it. Those in the monitoring center look over the audiovisual feedback they are getting. Only in extreme situations can agents or others tap in the citywide telecommunication network.

      G) Forensics Laboratory: A large facility with a decent set up for handling assessment of any, and all evidence granted to them ranging from simple items to corpses. For those hoping to find clues or link them then the forensics laboratory is potentially your best hope.

      H) Court Room: Due to the unique system in place within the model city trials are broadcasted to the public. Inmates will be brought forth, and a jury of their peers will hear evidence present. Ultimately the judge will question the inmate, and rely on the standards of testing for evidence to pass a sentence or find them not guilty.

      I) Reception Room: After entering the building one finds a spacious lobby with minor technological wonders, and distractions. Some believe it is a way to disarm people from feeling fear, and thus make the jobs of the guards checking people for weapons, and contraband have an easier time. Only sanctioned cardholders with dealings in sector authority are permitted weaponry.

      J) Maintenance Access: A back entrance into the building for the more stealthy inclined should no one be manning their shift there that is.

      K) Prison: Due to the nature of the city, all prisoners here are mainly here until being shipped back to the mainland or being registered into the public corporate testing system. There is enough room to house hundreds of people for occasions when such spaces are deemed a necessary usage.

      L) Interrogation Room: A room containing a table, and chairs set amidst a scene of dissonant serenity with pretty flowers, good music, and smells permeating the room. Courtesy of the those in Holder Industries testing pheromones it is believed this will make those undergoing interrogation more willing to talk.

      M) Stairwells, and Elevators: For use to travel between various floors within the build. To prevent dissident actions, and sabotage guards are placed here at all times to keep an eye on things.

      N) Armory: A decently stocked armory that is open to those working for sector authority. Those about to engage in operations for sector authority can gear up here. Stealing is highly improbable due to the 24/7 presence of robotic guards here which track all acquisitions to the letter.

      O) The Archives: Old evidence and surveillance material are cataloged here carefully by the robotic attendants, but unless you know exactly what to look for, and where you most likely won't have much luck finding it.


      Transport Hub:This serves as the headquarters for the cities transportation as not everyone has access to motor vehicles. When not in use the many buses which traverse the city return here for repairs. The hub also features what many consider the masterpiece of the city, its monorail system. An invention built and sponsored primarily by Longden Technologies.

      Utility Services:The building serves those officially registered in the city as maintenance workers. Though not as glorious as this city hall this building is useful in many ways. Thanks to corporate funding, and supplies any tool to fix any maintenance related problem can be found here.

      Firewatch Headquarters: This building serves as the main headquarters for all members of the Firewatch. They serve as the cities firefighters, volunteers, and others dedicated to maintaining the city and preventing it from collapsing from within. Any supplies dedicated to maintaining non-violent control and firefighting can likely be found here.

      Medwatch Headquarters: This building serves as the main headquarters for all members of the medwatch work. While not doctors or nurses these people will most likely have some degree of medical training. They do after all serve the city as drivers for the ambulances, and emergency responders to any crisis requiring medical intervention. Those on the shift for Medwatch will be required to stay in the building, but as the city collapses will find themselves at a better vantage point when it comes to medical supplies.

      Rex Energy Plant: The odd man out when it comes to the government district. They are the main energy monopoly when it comes to the city, and perhaps even mainland America. They used to primarily operate in atomic energy, but due to the rather disasterous atomic incident of 1978 have for public relations reasons diversified into other sources. The plant is the hub of all energy production for the city, and if it were to go down some serious problems would arise. As a result, it is heavily guarded perhaps even more so than other places in the district.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.


      Arboria Public School System: A facility in the heart of the government district that serves as the public education for all for those of student age within the city of Arboria. The school is also a testing ground of sorts with options for students to receive robotic implants to increase learning capacity. There are also audio-visual helmets used in certain classes to give a greater depth to lessons teachers try to provide. When not serving the school children of the city the buildings also provide college-level educational courses for adults.
  • Residential District: Serves as the primary place of residence for nearly all workers in the city. The decision was made years ago to centralize all workers regardless of access level in a central location as a means of utility. That said over the years the restriction has somewhat loosened, and as a result of today, only about seventy percent of the city actually lives here.

      Zero Level Apartments:Available to the most privileged, and wealthy class of the city its highly likely only a few people have ever truly seen the inside of these apartments. Most of them no doubt are cleaning staff or servants provided by the corporations, and they aren't exactly telling people what's inside as per contract.

      First Level Apartments: While not as luxurious as the zero level apartments it most certainly isn't hard to recognize the privilege of being a level one. Those on level one clearance can afford multiple bedrooms, and bathrooms. They have enough room for spacious dining, and living room as well. They have kitchens that normally have staff working in them, and small spaces for gardens.

      Second Level Apartments: Apartments that have a little bit more imagination to them as a whole. They provide a definitive difference between those with third level clearance and those with second level clearance. Some argue it is an attempt at motivating people to work harder and get up the chain of command quickly. Regardless of that fact, those in the second level have much larger bedrooms, and two to three bathrooms. They can even afford small kitchens, and entertainment quarters, but don't expect them to be spacious.

      Third Level Apartments:These apartments aren't exactly pretty, but they get the job done when it comes to shelter, and having a place to stay. The bedrooms are tiny, and there is typically only one bathroom, but given the circumstances ongoing in the rest of the world this is better than most have it. Third level apartments require inhabitants to use community kitchens, and living rooms.


      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Restaurant Square: Individual restaurants available to those with more money in their accounts, and who want to splurge on better quality food.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.


  • Testing District: This district is cut off from most of the city outside of specific exit points for a very good reason, it serves as the cities de-facto prison. Since room on the island is limited, and all must benefit the citizenry in some shape or fashion the cities leaders have chosen to not include a permanent detention facility. A facility like that would have no use here, and as such, they have decided to create an entire district dedicated to the idea of human tests subjects. At least that was the initial design of the aptly named testing district. Now things have gotten a bit more complicated, and as a result of this formerly single-use district now has multiple uses.

      The Ghetto: Aptly named as it houses those who are typically last hired, and first fired in this strange world of ours. The cities minority population are all designated to live here. Here the minority members who failed to impress a particular sponsor or corporation will spend their days when not working or attending other business. Their places of residence are drab and inspire little imagination, but the apartments here are built like fortresses as such they can withstand anything. It was mostly done this way as of result of some of the tests outright flattening several apartments a few years back.

      Arboria Home for the Mentally Ill: Those with severe mental illnesses are relocated here and under the intention of helping them are subjected to treatments that potentially violate all known ethics codes back on the mainland. If someone ends up here it is mainly because their family is desperate, and they see no other choice. The place itself isn't a horrible place to be, but the treatments are often whispered around the city as gossip due to how far the staff is trying to go in alleviating mental illness.

      The Testing Site: Here all those officially labeled test subjects must report to during their "shift". They don't necessarily have a choice to refuse whatever the doctors and others want to test. The subjects have a low lifespan expectation, but make up for it with unusually high pay, free alcohol, free drugs, and a higher amount of freedom than most people in the city. Despite these incentives, their jobs are tough, and refusal means being shipped to a prison on the mainland which is potentially worse.

      Test Subject Apartments: Despite being imprisoned the apartments of the test subjects are well decorated, and lavish compared to those in the ghetto. This again potentially has to do with the fact most of them die within a few years of the tests, but to some living like kings for a year is better than a lifetime as a peasant.

      The City Brothel: Perhaps the most controversial place in this model city as anyone who holds the card, and works here is forbidden from any other line of work. Those who reside, and work here serve as the cities finest prostitutes, and escorts available. The model city harshly cracked down on pimping, and illicit deals in the street in order to present a clean image to the world back when it mattered. In exchange for registering with the police, attending weekly health checkups, and being forever marked from society those who work here can expect a job that pays particularly well. The brothel services all clientele, and in an environment where homosexuality or anything alternative is repressed the nights liven up here.

      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

  • Agricultural District Created primarily to house Vista Agricorp, and it is associated with branches and departments. The agricultural district grows all the food for the city, and experiments with new ways of growing food so the city can not have to rely on shipments from the mainland to be completely self-sufficient. Thanks to their efforts they passed their expected timeframe of doing this by half. Now the agricultural district serves as a shining beacon in an ever darkening world.

      Water Purification and Sewage: Despite Sewage being under control of the utility department it runs through Vista Agricorp's control primarily as they have to find ways to ensure that water sources aren't being contaminated by disease or radiation. Despite the nanites aiding humanity too much radioactivity can pose a danger to certain elements of human health such as fertility, and lifespan.


      Vista Recycling: Here is the cities central recycling facility, and due to the fact as an island it has to be cautious with too much waste a lot of stuff comes here. Combined with the ongoing germaphobe phase of many citizens there has never been such a massive campaign, and attempt to encourage an end to needless waste. Used to be such an idea would be laughed at, but with the mega-corporations taking note of how much of the world has fallen to the corrupted nanites resources in some areas aren't as plentiful as they used to be.

      Vista Agricorp Farms: The original reason for the existence of the agricultural district the farms serve as the headquarters to Vista Agricorp. They cover much of the district with row after row of greenhouses, farms atop of buildings, and anything imaginable simply to conserve space, and feed the ever-growing city.

      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Emergency Services Depot: A substation used by members of the sector authority, medwatch, and fire watch personnel working on shifts outside the government district. These stations have the same supplies as each individual branches headquarters, but for the most part, are merely meant as supports. If a crisis were to overwhelm the city such areas might not last long.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.


  • Scientific District: The scientific district is a marvel to behold for both regular citizens and corporate visitors alike. It is the first, and oldest district within the island, and as such is also perhaps one of the biggest employers.

      Holder Industry Headquarters: The head of one of the biggest mega-corporations in the united states, and the building doesn't hold back in just how massive it is. This is often the first thing you will see coming into port given how big the place is.

      Holder Industry Laboratories: A labyrinthian complex dedicated to any, and every form of scientific pursuit possible. There are several floors above, and below ground, and thanks to several employees getting lost the facility has its own tram system, and guide robotics to aid the workers. There also several privately owned restaurants to feed the workers, a dormitory, a gym, and even a school for the employee's children.

      Ackerman Pharmaceuticals Headquarters: Often derogatorily called the drug kingpins of the city it isn't exactly an unfair assumption. Every single chemical whether for healing or otherwise has Ackerman's hands on the product somehow. Their headquarters while not as prominent as Holder Industries is a powerful reminder of where everyone is getting their life-sustaining medication or quick fixes. From here they monitor the testing district since it was their idea, to begin with, and ensure their products work before shipping them out to the general public.

      Ackerman Experimentation Range: Here the most eccentric, and wackiest of those employed by Ackerman work shift by shift to handle the more unusual requests from corporate. Whether it is patenting false cyanide that actually keeps spies alive, and flooding intelligence agencies with it in order to sow chaos. To introducing chemicals in the water that give you the whitest teeth possible with the potential to turn the cities male population into homosexuals. Ethics, and morality matter not so long as the product gets done. The worst part is that everything in the city is an experiment for them.

      Ackerman Laboratories: The heart, and soul when it comes to developing pharmaceutical drugs, and everything else the city needs medically. While nowhere near the labyrinthian size of Holder Industries, and their labs the facility is quite large. Reportedly much of it is underground for security reasons especially in case the facility ever needs to lock down. Visual technology and aesthetic choices are used to distract the workers from the apparent depressing conditions of being underground.

      Ackerman Memorial: The largest hospital complex in the city, and if one is a nurse, doctor, therapist, or psychiatrist then you are likely working here. The hospital is self-contained, and full of gardens, and other things. The hospital administrator believes such things will help improve the patient's health overall, and as such plants even decorate the interior of the hospital.

      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.

  • Technological District: The heart, and soul of the Longden Technologies Branch, and its subsidiary Renault Firms. Though there are other businesses and places here these two tend to outshadow anything else.

      Longden Technologies Headquarters: While the national headquarters and the mysterious mister Longden are in Boston the city executive is viewed just as eccentric. From here the executive tries to wow the crowds of the city, and the nation with brand new technologies yearly, but of course everyone comes for the prized technology of robotics.


      Longden Medical [Arboria Branch]: A more recent expanse of Longden Technology and some speculate it may be in part owed to the fact that Longden is old and childless. Regardless of the reason state of the art technology for the medical field can be found on this island thanks to this technology. The big hook being the hospital is primarily run by robotics with only a handful of staff.

      Longden Robotics Assembly Plant: The assembly plant for all of the robotics built by Longden when it comes to Arboria. The workers here simply build the robotics as blank slates before shipping them off to other parts of the technology district. Strangely the same cannot be said for the flying drones which buzz all over the city. The workers don't just build them, but test them out, and make sure they are ready before reporting to whoever purchased them.

      Longden Robotics Testing and Equipping: The second phase facility which gets the constructed robotics, and then tests their durability for domestic use. They also equip them with personality, and emotion chips to ensure seamless integration into human society. Thanks to this facility the issue of fatalities by accident in regards to security robotics has gone down completely.

      Longden Experimental Technologies Association: Despite the standard of excellence and rigidity Longden is known to be highly eccentric. Perhaps due to the very nature of Arboria he is willing to make exceptions for allowing his employees access to advanced technology, so long as they sign the appropriate waivers of course.

      Renault Firm Headquarters: While rebuilt under the auspices of the U.S company Longden Technologies the formerly European company the company itself is hardly the independent power it used to be. Regardless of its lack of sovereignty its stranglehold on the weapons market has given it some leverage as of late.

      Renault Construction: While Renault Firms is primarily weapons a big corner of the firm is the focus on aiding in construction in the city and improving that infrastructure.

      Renault Weapons Range: The weapons range is used for the testing of weapons before being sent off to aid Sector Authority in maintaining control.

      Renault Labs: The laboratory focuses on the development of weapons as well as technology that aids in fighting disease. They are responsible for developing the quarantine protocols on the island as well as the handheld, and machine scanners used to detect disease. The city and other groups often get their hazmat suits from them as well due to how resistant to infection they are.

      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.

  • Security District: The security districts primary focus is to serve as the focal point for Black Crest Securities. It is arranged in a square that gives off a nice pleasant feeling, but ultimately is a mask for what is a complex organization that sells its services to the highest bidder.

      Quarantine Station Command: The Quarantine Station Command primarily handles disease detection for all incoming ships docking at the ports within Arboria and takes no precaution in ensuring the spread of disease is curbed. When a disease is detected they typically will aid sector security in assessing the situation, and if the situation gets bad enough will get clearance for operations in areas deemed "lost".

      The Asset Protection Services: Your regular employee of Black Crest Securities who is assigned a shift at one of their many client's buildings. Think of them as regular security guards, but if the need arises they can call for support from the companies many security robotics or turrets.

      Civil Obedience Enforcement: Primarily an aid to help the riot police with the sector authority should things get out of control. They have the added bonus of accessing state of the art surveillance. They use them to list bounties for discontents, and others stirring up trouble in "states of emergency". Initially, though they will most likely assist Sector Authority in keeping citizens in line.

      Corporate Intelligence Unit: Imagine if you will spies chose not to work for countries, but rather corporations. Now imagine this power being on sale to the highest bidder. The C.I.U has little qualm about getting their jobs done especially since the paycheck is worth it. They see no problem in keeping order even if means thousands die. During the initial stages, they will be mostly concerned with keeping order amongst employees and making sure people aren't trying to violate their contracts.

      Black Crest Operations Team: For the most part these are the shock troopers who maintain order during times of higher chaos and will get the authorization to conduct operations if the situation is bad enough. They act as an extension of sector authority, but are still mercenaries at the end of the day, and have their own personal prerogatives.

      Black Crest Securities Offices: The beating heart of Black Crest Securities and it serves as the epicenter for the smooth bureaucracy that runs the place.



      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

      Grocery Depository:City sanctioned grocery stockpile depository for those not wishing to partake in the feeding bay or spend their own money on the restaurant square.

  • Garden District: The Garden Districts primary concern is to serve as a place for entertainment, mass gatherings, and enjoyment from the daily, and droll life of a mega-corporation worker. The Garden District lives up to its name by having a variety of plants, and wild animals wandering everywhere. Originally it was going to be a massive zoo, but scientists simply decided to pacify the animals more aggressive traits with nanites, and allow humans a more up close, and personal look at the wild beasts of far away continents. No incidents of the animals attacking humans have happened yet, and as such advice for extra security, teams have fallen on deaf ears.

      The City Park: This is perhaps one of the more normal places within Arboria. It covers a quarter of the garden district with families coming during their time off to enjoy the animals, fish at one of the many ponds, stroll on the promenade and sit at a bench to breathe for a moment.


      The square: A central meeting place where important updates are provided to the citizens of the city on the nightly information casts. Also used for plays, drama, and other performance arts when not taken up for official announcements.

      Movie Theater: A large move complex that plays the latest, and greatest hits available on the big screen as per government regulations of course.

      City Library: The largest collection of books, and other materials for reading, and listening to in the city. Students spend their hours studying here while others simply want to do something before work.

      Transport Depot: Thanks to the interconnection of the bus routes, and the monorail citizens can travel the city with ease. All they have to do is wait, and someone is bound to stop at this station.

      Feeding Bay: Available to all residents of the city 24/7 it serves food in a buffet style manner and has a variety of dishes depending on the day of the week, and time of the day.

      Clinic: A small medical clinic equipped to care for the sick, and wounded until they can transfer to better-equipped facilities if the need arises.

      Pharmacy: A designated supplier of the cities stockpile of medicine, and authorized chemicals.

Timeline

1944-1945: The Ardennes Offensive buys Germany several more years to fight against the allied offensive in the west, and the Soviet offensive in the east. President Harry Truman cancels the deployment of the atomic bomb on the Japanese home islands. His memoirs will later claim a "crisis of conscience".

1946: Anti-war riots in Britain are crushed brutally, and as a result, socialist, and communist worker groups begin to protest, and dissent across the country.

1947: Operation Downfall concludes, and the estimated U.S body count is over one million troops. Someone in the government leaks information concerning the atomic bomb, and protests erupt nationwide. President Truman commits suicide weeks before his impeachment trial. The Republican speaker of the house Joseph William Martin Jr is sworn in as president and promises to bring a "swift end" to the war. On December 20th, 1947 Berlin erupts in atomic fire, and within a few days more German cities are turned to ash. Critics note that the new president did indeed keep his promise if somewhat harshly.

1948: Official peace is signed a little after the start of the year, and due to the use of five atomic bombs the Soviets decide to abandon the focus on western Germany for the southern portions of Germany. The Treaty of Aachen on January 5th, 1948 marks the end of the Reich, and the commencement of the Rhine Conference on January 15th, 1948 marks the end of Germany. The Rhine Commission establishes the division of Germany and the destruction of the German. Each region is made into own country with its own limited foreign policy, and the establishment of a defense force only. Each new nation is also mandated to pay back reparations in some form.

A) The Saarland votes to join France.
B) The fate of the French Occupation Zone
* Confederation of the Rhine [fully neutral, and reliant on French troops)
* the Republic of Württemberg.
* Union of Baden
C) The fate of the Soviet Occupation Zone
*Formation of Bavaria, and Hesse into the Peoples Union of Bavaria.
D) The fate of the British occupation zone
* The Republic of Schleswig-Holstein
* The Duchy of Lower Saxony
* Commonwealth of North Rhine-Westphalia
Schleswig-Holstein – emerging in 1946 from the Prussian Province of Schleswig-Holstein;
Lower Saxony – the merger of Brunswick, Oldenburg, and Schaumburg-Lippe with the state of Hanover in 1946; and
North Rhine-Westphalia – the merger of Lippe with the Prussian provinces of the Rhineland (northern part) and Westphalia – during 1946–47.
E) The fate of the American occupation zone
*Merger of the zone into the Kingdom of Prussia.
F) The institution of reparations.
G) Establishment of the legal recognition of the transfer of East Prussia to Poland.
H) Recognition of a fully independent Austria under Soviet advisement.

The Americans pull out by years end from the European occupation primarily due to disgust with affairs in Europe. The attitude of vengeance prevents them from pulling out of the Pacific however causing many troops to be stationed in Japan. Britain suffers a workers revolution, and thus by mid-year pulls out of their occupation areas by the midpoint of the year. This leaves the newly shattered Germany stuck between a revanchist France and the eying Soviet Union. Things in Japan aren't much better with the home islands divided between the Soviets, and the U.S.

1949: MacArthur is unable to convince a vengeful U.S population of the necessity of reunifying the home islands under a full U.S occupation, and having a surviving imperial relative assume the throne of Japan. Frustrated he turns his attention to the worsening phase of civil war in China, and ultimately comes up with a recovery plan to aid the Republic if they push for peace. The MacArthur Plan calls for total economic revitalization in Asia, and the Republic of China is the first stop. As a result of his interference in China MacArthur ultimately is forced to resign from running the Japanese occupation government in the south. In the Peoples Commonwealth of Britain, the transitional government declared in 1948 comes to an end paving the way for a more permanent government.

1950: The Republic of China move their capital to Shanghai, and discuss a peace treaty with the Communist party government in Beijing. An official demarcation line grants the communists control over large parts of Northern China and Manchuria, but it does signal peace. Meanwhile, after several years of debate, the United Nations places its headquarters in San Francisco. The first elections of the Peoples Commonwealth of Britain result in social democrat victory.

1952: In a surprise election the Commonwealth elects the National-Leftists a coalition of hardened nationalists, veterans, and Marxist-leninists. Within days of the electoral victory, the new government announces war with Ireland over the "seizure of Northern Ireland". Many critics know this is a ruse as Northern Ireland joined the republic to avoid the chaos of the revolution spreading to their soil. Regardless of the facts, the U.N is paralyzed on what to do, and the commonwealth seems to win the "Irish War". Ireland is integrated fully into the commonwealth by the end of the year.

As a result of becoming diplomatically sanctioned by both France, and the U.S the British state turns to the Soviets.

1953: Peace agreements between North, and South Korea end much differently due to U.S inability to muster the UN to launch a coalition to aid South Korea. As a result of the total northern victory, the U.S is galvanized in its attempts to contain communism with what it deems the "atmosphere" by any means necessary.

1954: Communist revolutionaries win in the Greek Civil War, and a Marxist-Leninist coup in Instanbul shocks the world. France announces the European Federation Agreements which create a voluntary organization dedicated to the military, and economic protection of "free Europe". This is done in response to the communist victory in Greece and the Turkish coup.

1955-1957: The "integrationist crisis" rips apart the United States, and president Eisenhower is forced to mobilize troops across the southern united states. The news media presence in the south showing gangs, police, activists, and others ripping themselves apart in what appears to be an unofficial civil war prove to be an embarrassment to the international reputation. Within days of the military occupation civil government is suspended, and with it, the civil rights movement is rendered dead in the south. Historians are unsure what caused the non-violence aspect to spin out of control, but some point to the death of major leaders in the Baton Rouge boycotts of 1953. Jonas Salk a prominent researcher of the polio epidemic ravaging the U.S is killed by a bomb thrown at his test clinic in Birmingham causing the disease to go without a vaccine for years.

1960: A revolution by the peasantry, and small landowners rocks Mexico, and their pro-U.S government is forced into exile. Eisenhower fortifies the border with U.S armed forces following several raids into small U.S towns by ardent revolutionaries. Cuba's own revolutionaries are surprisingly defeated by pure luck following an overconfident assault to liberate Havana.

1961: A group of powerful investors fearful that rising tensions will likely lead to an atomic conflict between the construction of vast, complex, and self-sufficient "megacities" to preserve remnants of the human species in case things ever did happen.

1962: Containment doctrine is abandoned for the preservation doctrine to take over U.S foreign policy. Atomic bomb facilities are placed in the Republic of China by the U.S while the Soviets place facilities in the Peoples Republic of Mexico. U.S foreign aid rushes into South America, Africa, and Asia to ensure communist ideologies do not spread. European funding is virtually drained overnight as a result of this.

1963: The Irish Rebellion starts in 1963 at first with the bombing of strategic targets. Militias from villages and small towns will launch several coordinated raids, and even execute the puppet governor of Ireland. U.S companies begin experimenting with life support technology to make extended space living, and traveling capable.

1964: A bomb explodes in the people's parliament in London killing thousands. The new British chancellor on a platform of revenge launches a massive, and armed campaign against the Irish rebellion. The Commonwealth first launches a carpet bombing campaign, and then a military reclamation. Foreign news consultants report casualties for the Irish at 120,000, but casualties for the British offensive are high as well. A terraforming test is conducted off the coast of Washington state.

1965: A leaked memo by an anonymous author titled "The Year of Blood" reveals Commonwealth casualties at 20,000 this sparks a veterans protest, and the overthrown of the current administration by force from resentful British veterans. The "London Spring" government assumes power and sues for peace with Ireland. An independent Ireland is born by the end of the year, but on the Home Island, several things begin to change. The U.S government reports the first manned mission to the moon is a complete success.

1966: The reform government in power invites several scientists from abroad to help solve the current polio crisis which is ravaging the globe. Newly established firm Holder Industries founded by U.S citizen Proteus Holder sets them to work in a lab in London. Research scientist Mako Iwamatsu develops a grey goo which can be used to disperse the polio vaccine by ingestion. Later that year a lab explosion causes the grey goo to rapidly mutate into proto-nanites. The vaccine is dispersed globally in a matter of days.

1967: The project ends, but Mako goes on to work for Holder Industries in the U.S. In exchange for the vaccines secrets Holder is able to negotiate for the U.S recognition of the commonwealths reform government much to the dismay of Canada. The secrets are also taken by Bavarian-born Soviet citizen Georgi Vyoshkov who was working in the lab as an intern. Although this is done illegally, and as a result, Georgi Vyoshkov is banned from Holder Industry properties ever again. The first manned expedition to Mars and Venus is conducted, and newscasters debate the prospects of settling the planets.

1968: The first research station is established on the Moon, and colonists begin arriving to the newly built outer earth station by May.

1969: The reform government of the Commonwealth is brutally crackdowned on by the Soviets following a plan to join the Atlantic Treaty Organization, and abandon the Moscow Pact.

1970: The European Federation undergoes a radical transformation into a cohesive entity akin to what some people call a super-state.

1971: Mako Iwamatsu in his new laboratory in Tennessee while working for Holder Industries begins development of the first generation of nanites. As a result of the discoveries regarding robotics, and nanites this year would often mark the founding year for many major mega-corporations that employ people today. Some "technophobe" critics would mark the decades prosperity as utterly obscene, but with what was to come some couldn't blame people for enjoying the good times.

1978: On December 7th, the annual pearl harbor memorial day is disrupted violently. A soviet failsafe is triggered, and experimental AI piloting some of their atomic response planes set off from Britain. All, but one listens to the shutdown command, and five hydrogen bombs explode across New York City sending much of the island into the sea, and leaving the charred remains of Manhattan as a stark reminder of what used to be. Those who survived reported that it had been such a beautiful afternoon...no one has ever truly seen a bright sunny day on earth ever since. Three-term prosperity president Richard Nixon takes public responsibility to draw up a fair "retribution lottery" in order to avoid triggering mutually assured destruction.

The retribution lottery is set to hit an equal amount of cities worldwide, and cripple everyone. The first city hit in retribution is Moscow, and with that, the Omega Cities seal themselves off for the next several years as radiation floods the world. It is speculated Richard Nixon's death following the end of his third term is due to the grief he felt over ensuring the survival of the United States. Regardless of the welfare, and universal health care system he established would make up his legacy more than the atomic lottery.

1979: The Omega City of Columbia, Missouri is chosen as the new capital of the U.S following radiation storms making Washington D.C virtually uninhabitable.

1980: Strange reports of monster attacks flood in from all over the globe, but many doctors attribute it to the stress following the atomic war. The Soviets undergo a period of unparalleled liberalization while the European Federation becomes highly militarized. The U.S on the other hand resort to presidential dictatorship to ensure their countries survival. The U.S enforces total economic control, and rationing following several famines as a result of radioactive summers.

1981: The Global Defense System is established by linking several kill satellites together. It is made by the U.S government as a way to ensure the atomic war of '78 never happens again.

1983: The transitional U.S government reports contact with the space colonies has been established again.

1984-1988: Reagans Thaw occurs when democratic candidate Ronald Reagan institutes several reforms ending the militarization of society, and stopping control of the market. Congress convenes and discusses laws on racial equality in order to end the hold put on the south following the integrationist crisis. Reagans Thaw ends with his assassination however, and an establishment candidate only endorses moderate reforms.

1989: The establishment candidate ends total government economic control, but keeps rationing, and ends the regulations of several mega-corporations. Congress cancels all talks on racial equality laws, and the civilian government is restored in the south under the militaries watchful eye. A new wave of reform dedicated toward autonomy, limited democracy, and soft-capitalism comes to power in the Commonwealth of Britain.

1991: Several mega-corporation using their money start funding an artificial island project off the coast of the state of New York. The stated goal is to recreate a vestige of the former New York City as a reminder of the old world. They also begin investing for the construction of a model corporate city using territory on an island of the coast of Washington State. A renewed cultural movement begins enforcing laws limiting women's working capacity in regards to their safety. Racial hygiene laws bring the U.S into full-blown apartheid, and blacks are forced to carry passbooks with them on time.

1992: Several states institute a passport system as a way of control following several insurrections in cities, and rural areas. While the insurrections themselves don't have a common goal they only end up making things worse for people.

1993: Congress and the Supreme Court lose any real power while Mega-Corporations continue to grow. The U.S Department of Culture is founded and enforces a twisted version of the 1950s, and early 1960s. Harkening back to a time of purity before the decadence of the 1970s, and the war of '78. Mega Corporations begin building the first of many planned cities while the public attention is kept to the many wondrous appliances, and robotics they now enjoy. Subtly U.S schools begin teaching courses on proper language, dress, and proper music.

1994: Vista Agricorp's solution to the radiation continuing to ruin several crop yields is to build massive tent cities of greenhouses, and inject nanites into the food chain. Robotic farms, and entirely self-sufficient rooftop farms become the quickest ways to feed cities.

1995: The Commonwealth of Britain encounters a plague like no other, and a genocidal quarantine is placed on the island by the European Federation.

1997: Transatlantic Airlines flight #296 is shot down by the Federation for deviating flight patterns, and ending up in quarantined air space. The U.S, and the Soviet Union are outraged as the flight had citizens of both nations heading to Oslo. Ultimately a conspiracy is revealed that the plane was shot down in an attempt to discredit the government of Norway. The government in Oslo was dominated by secessionists who broke off from the European Federation and wanted assurances of protection from both the U.S, and the Soviet Union. This causes the start of the Eurasian War as the plane getting shot down was not an accident after all.

1998-2000: The Eurasian War is raged by the US-Soviet alliance against the European Federation. Paris is obliterated by the global defense system, and a humiliating peace treaty forces the European Federation to withdraw their hold on the Germans. They also have to pay immense reparations for the murder of several civilians.

2006: Protesters in Okinawa, Republic of Japan storm a biological laboratory specializing in nanites, and diseases. They release several test subjects both animal, and human causing a wave of carnage. The modern disease the corrupted nanites are carrying today stems from this incident. The island of Okinawa is destroyed by the Global Defense System, but infected individuals make it back to the main islands of Japan. A desperate quarantine of the home islands fails, and the U.S withdraws from the global economy following reports of infection in China.

2007: The national pandemic act is quickly passed, and U.S citizens are given one last chance to return home before the borders are shut off completely.

2011: Five years into the start of the global outbreak, and something is going terribly wrong in the corporate model city of Arboria.

Ahh...my apologies I will work on correcting that in just a second.

Edit: Just fixed the problem with the applications. Put in the code format, and as such people should have too difficult a time getting the app format.

Edit II: In locations, some areas repeat, and that is intentional due to the fact the city is modeled off a strict program of what goes where, and why.

I mean on the one hand having a higher rank would definitely be beneficial, but on the other hand, when things start to truly go to absolute hell you wouldn't want to be the guy in charge.

A fire fighter or construction worker would be more beneficial, as a group might need to get past a locked and/or barricaded door.

I suppose I meant more for the city as a whole than just whatever groups begin to form as society collapses. Speaking of which New York City is an irradiated ashpile...you might want to reconsider changing the place of birth.

I suppose I meant more for the city as a whole than just whatever groups begin to form as society collapses. Speaking of which New York City is an irradiated ashpile...you might want to reconsider changing the place of birth.

The city is already doomed.

Well, the United States has locked itself out from the world content to let most of it burn away from the infection save a few special countries like Britain. Mainland Europe is currently battling the infection albeit losing, and Britain is safe even though it is severely depopulated from the pandemic mentioned in the timeline.

Yes, but the citizens don't actually know that. We have the luxury of that foreknowledge while the people in the city don't.

So... the United States is the only current safe sanctuary on Earth ?

Well, "safe" for the moment, but as this roleplay will show that safety only delayed the inevitable. After the U.S failed to prevent the pandemic from spreading out of Japan and seeing cases popping up in China they decided the only logical solution was to initiate a hard lockdown. So they issued a recall of their citizens, informed a few select countries, and then dropped out of the planet. As countries started to fall to the pandemic people outside the U.S generally got a clue about why the country went dark. While the country may be safe for the moment its come with a price.

The culture in the U.S is on the verge of extreme paranoia induced on behalf of the government as a way to control the population. People are extreme germaphobes, and businesses have made quite the profit thriving off the culture of distrust over sickness. This is in part due to the fact the government acknowledges a horrible disease is ravaging the globe but isn't telling the truth that people in power know. The very thing keeping people alive on an irradiated planet, and not dying from radiation poisoning en masse is also turning them into horrible monsters. So the safety is only partly a matter of practicality, and the rest is security theater.

Tadeusz Rybinski


Tadeusz was about to get out of the place to rest of the group when he thought about something, he turned to Omar and said

"Sorry, for this elephant"

Tadeusz raised his hand for a handshake when the shots were fired and he transformed into a Dragonfly and he flew over at 60mph to rest of group while constantly making turns, when he got back said to the rest of the group after transforming

"What are we doing now"

To the nearest person, which was Szarlota

Elek Mohave


Seeing what was happening on the battlefield Elek realized he had no chance now of either hitting with a knife throw or getting there, he jumped out of the small rock barrier and walked to someone with a question

"Well, what now?"

This came from Heroes of Tomorrow RP

The Freak God Hyztlet
The Freak God waited for The Anarchs answer when it saw Ishtarte the Queen of Hell in what can be described as a mix of terror and disgust, the Freak God decided the Goddess shall be punished for cowardness, It stretched its wings and flew behind the Goddess and grabbed her arm with the hammer by his two hands

"Pathetic, the Queen of Hell, the one that proclaims itself as the oldest and creator, the one that claims to be the best of all Gods, scared by insects, pathetic indeed"

With that, God let go of her arm and said

"I'm on the other hand, a Younger God, a Waze Roho I AM THE FEARLESS, but that wasn't something a man or women said of me yet but I have been called by many names, and my worshipers even if in small numbers are fearless too!"

With those words, he turned to his brothers and sisters, children and siblings and started cackling with his mandibles while his antennae beaten on his horn, the insects understood hundreds of Dragonflies exited and within minutes brought a human that was very willing to, the human's name was Ah-Muzen-Cab and he said

"My lord what was I summoned for "

and the Freak God only said

"I need you to become a home of cultivation of my new creation to show the puny Goddess Ishtarte that neither I or my followers are ones to be afraid"

the Human bowed down awaiting what his lord prepared for him, Hyztlet attached a pair of antennae to his forehead and cracked his skull open while chanting

"From you shall a new species emerge a helpful one to humans producing nectar golden as your hair and sweet as your blood"

with these words, every Mortal and God that weren't under the mass of insects could see how from the man's forehead flowed down golden blood but Hyztlet continued

" The nectar shall be called honey and insect a bee, first generation shall go to the brave man's village to serve for the humans he was taken from"

with this Hyztlet ended and small furry, flying insect flew high to the ceiling and next one continued and another and a million more, then two of the sacred emerged and joined the procession and turned to the goddess

"Are you still afraid?"

It said ironically

Moreau, Solomon, Director of experimental robotics, Longden technologies.

Basic Information [Employee]
Full name: Solomon George Moreau
Other Public names: Sol 'red rat' Moreau
Date of Birth, and Age: 12/10/1958, 52
Biological Sex: Male
Birthplace: York, Commonwealth of Britain
Racial Category: Caucasian
Religion: Agnostic
Appearance Solomon is a fairly short yet well built fellow at only 5,9. Over the years the bulk he put on from working the family farm in Yorkshire has slowly withered away however he still retains some of his former strength. His head is akin to a rectangle with a uncared for mess of thinning black air topping it, his perpetually wide eyes are a misty shade of grey and beneath them are a number of creases developed over many a sleepless night. The lower part of his face is entirely clean shaven exposing how the stress of his position has aged , him.



Medical Information
Physical condition:FIT
Medical conditions : (Any medical conditions that the character might have that are relevant to note down, example, diabetes type 1, Peanut allergy.)
  • Notable condition, relevant information
Medical history:
  • Significant damage and scarring to his lower thigh that occurred from a farming accident involving a twelve year old Solomon and an aggravated bull in 1980.
Psychological profile: Solomon is a particularly outspoken and charismatic individual who attempts to keep an upbeat and positive attitude in any situation. While willing to engage in a viscous argument over the smallest facet of life he is completely unwilling to speak about political matters mainly down to the fact he was formally a member of the CPGB ( communist party of Great Britain) and the ideology he and they carried are generally despised. Another one of Solomon's more positive facets is that he is extraordinarily diligent and would rather be fired then leave a job unfinished. However there a number of sides to his personality that are far less desirable, he's a hypocrite and a turncoat with next to no loyalty and has a overly exalted opinion of himself leading him to often get into fights that he can in no way win.
Likes: Robotics, old western films, urban areas, socialism, himself, people
Dislikes: the countryside, luddites, physical labor, fizzy drinks, Longden technologies, his uncle Alastair
Fears and Traumas: Being trapped at his job for eternity, facing why he fled Britain in 1994, loosing his sense of self
Hopes: retirement to a nice manor in one of the Omega cities, surpassing his uncle Alastair, live out his natural lifespan, break off from Longden while continuing to work on robotics.



Employer Information:
Current Employer/Sponsor/Rank (rank determines access card level): Longden technologies, Alastair Moreau human resources officer, director of experimental robotics
Educational History: Upper Avon primary school, Upper Avon secondary school, London University college [degrees in robotics, proletariat politics and engineering]
Employment history:
  • Farm hand [1970 - 1975] junior robotacist [1979 - 1982], Robotics researcher at the ministry of advancement [1982 - 1985], head researcher of the autonomous robots department [1985 - 1990], Director of nanotechnology [1990 - 1994], Director of experimental robotics [1995 - present]
    • Notable Cases
Any weapons to register?: none to speak of
Vehicle to register?: A particularly small mini provided to him by Longden


Additional Biographical Information
Family: Alastair Moreau - uncle [alive]
Charles Moreau - farther [deceased]
Sydney Lithgow - mother [ deceased]
Francis Cowley - wife [ deceased]
Mathew Moreau - son [alive]
Known workplace relationships: Alastair Moreau is probably Solomon's only contact he has on the mainland and that's only down to his uncle's highly nepotistic nature which is the entire reason he got his job and is in America in the first place.
Marital Status: Unmarried
Basic background: Solomon was born in a communal farm near the town of upper Avon, all in all it was most likely one of the most ideal locations to born in Britain a combination of both honest rural work as well as excellent urban education lead to Solomon turning out as the embodiment of the ideal British youth in communist Britain, except for one thing: Solomon never exceeded in any one particular thing nor did he ever show an interest in any hobby, he was a perfectly standard Human. This was perfectly fine for Solomon's parents after all the Moreau family had been a long line of farmers and Solomon was looking to be simply the next one along however there was one member of the Moreau family who found this absolutely abhorrent.

Solomon's uncle Alastair had been a high ranking engineer within the revolutionary ministry of works ever since the revolution began (this was mainly due to the fact that his superior had been shot on suspicion of reactionary activities). He had never had a child of his own nor a spouse and so he viewed Solomon as the continuation of his legacy and needless to say he would go to great lengths in order to ensure that Solomon would be adequate in forging a proud and respected Moreau line. He began by introducing a number of hobbies to Solomon through the form of birthday and Christmas gifts and regularly bringing Solomon out on trips to famous scientific establishments in Britain. Oddly enough he managed to hit right on the mark within the first few months of his efforts, Solomon managed to pick up a fascination with robotics yet he showed no talent for it whenever Alastair gave him a robotics kit he more then likely brake it however he would always try to get his hands on more books in order to further his knowledge.

Despite his fascination Solomon only maintained robotics as a hobby and for his career he still fully expected to work on the farm, Solomon's choice in career would change significantly when at twelve years old Solomon came into an unfortunate accident with a bull that caused significant damage to his leg meaning that he was no longer able to work on the farm. From that point onwards Solomon would dedicate himself to robotics almost entirely in order to make up for his lack of talent in the field and with Alastair's help he managed to find himself a position in Cambridge. After finishing his time in university Solomon went to work at the ministry of advancement, despite his adulthood Solomon still found that Alastair was subtly trying to manipulate his life and put it into directions that he thought was best for Solomon while this was at first just a minor annoyance it slowly formed into a resentment against his uncle. It was also at the ministry of advancement that he discovered the sinister world of office politics which was for once something he had talent for, his rise through the ranks of the ministry can be almost entirely explained by his exceptional ability to backstab.

When he reached the position of director of nanotechnology his life was in excellent condition he had a wife, a new-born son, a stable job and a considerable retirement fund however unfortunately project Indigo ruined all of that, the project was an effort to develop an effective and adaptive cure to all diseases using nanite technology. While Solomon had no direct involvement in project Indigo he certainly gave a few pointers to push it the right direction, the plague followed a few months later. Solomon's wife was one of the first to go and when the government had identified what had caused the plague Solomon and his son had already made their way over to the states.

In America Solomon succeeded in finding himself a position in the up and coming Longden technologies partly because they were looking for experienced roboticists mainly because his uncle Alastair, who had fled to America after some particular allegations, was willing to pull some strings in order to get him into the company. Since then Solomon had been forced to play puppet to Alastair who now seemed to orchestrate every aspect of his life turning his resentment into full hatred when the opportunity to move to Arboria presented itself he took it immediately, his son who had since moved out of Solomon's house refused to come to Arboria despite Solomon's firm belief that the corperate city was the only safe place left.

Another one of Solomon's more positive facets is that he is extraordinarily diligent and would rather be fired then leave a job unfinished. However there a number of sides to his personality that are far less desirable, he's a hypocrite and a turncoat with next to no loyalty and has a overly exalted opinion of himself leading him to often get into fights that he can in no way win.
Likes: Robotics, old western films, urban areas, socialism, himself, people
Dislikes: the countryside, luddites, physical labor, fizzy drinks, Longden technologies, his uncle Alastair
Fears and Traumas: Being trapped at his job for eternity, facing why he fled Britain in 1994, loosing his sense of self
Hopes: retirement to a nice manor in one of the Omega cities, surpassing his uncle Alastair, live out his natural lifespan, break off from Longden while continuing to work on robotics.

Known workplace relationships: Alastair Moreau is probably Solomon's only contact he has on the mainland and that's only down to his uncle's highly nepotistic nature which is the entire reason he got his job and is in America in the first place.
Marital Status: Unmarried
Basic background: Solomon was born in a communal farm near the town of upper Avon, all in all it was most likely one of the most ideal locations to born in Britain a combination of both honest rural work as well as excellent urban education lead to Solomon turning out as the embodiment of the ideal British youth in communist Britain, except for one thing: Solomon never exceeded in any one particular thing nor did he ever show an interest in any hobby, he was a perfectly standard Human. This was perfectly fine for Solomon's parents after all the Moreau family had been a long line of farmers and Solomon was looking to be simply the next one along however there was one member of the Moreau family who found this absolutely abhorrent.

Solomon's uncle Alastair had been a high ranking engineer within the revolutionary ministry of works ever since the revolution began (this was mainly due to the fact that his superior had been shot on suspicion of reactionary activities). He had never had a child of his own nor a spouse and so he viewed Solomon as the continuation of his legacy and needless to say he would go to great lengths in order to ensure that Solomon would be adequate in forging a proud and respected Moreau line. He began by introducing a number of hobbies to Solomon through the form of birthday and Christmas gifts and regularly bringing Solomon out on trips to famous scientific establishments in Britain. Oddly enough he managed to hit right on the mark within the first few months of his efforts, Solomon managed to pick up a fascination with robotics yet he showed no talent for it whenever Alastair gave him a robotics kit he more then likely brake it however he would always try to get his hands on more books in order to further his knowledge.

Despite his fascination Solomon only maintained robotics as a hobby and for his career he still fully expected to work on the farm, Solomon's choice in career would change significantly when at twelve years old Solomon came into an unfortunate accident with a bull that caused significant damage to his leg meaning that he was no longer able to work on the farm. From that point onwards Solomon would dedicate himself to robotics almost entirely in order to make up for his lack of talent in the field and with Alastair's help he managed to find himself a position in Cambridge. After finishing his time in university Solomon went to work at the ministry of advancement, despite his adulthood Solomon still found that Alastair was subtly trying to manipulate his life and put it into directions that he thought was best for Solomon while this was at first just a minor annoyance it slowly formed into a resentment against his uncle. It was also at the ministry of advancement that he discovered the sinister world of office politics which was for once something he had talent for, his rise through the ranks of the ministry can be almost entirely explained by his exceptional ability to backstab.

When he reached the position of director of nanotechnology his life was in excellent condition he had a wife, a new-born son, a stable job and a considerable retirement fund however unfortunately project Indigo ruined all of that, the project was an effort to develop an effective and adaptive cure to all diseases using nanite technology. While Solomon had no direct involvement in project Indigo he certainly gave a few pointers to push it the right direction, the plague followed a few months later. Solomon's wife was one of the first to go and when the government had identified what had caused the plague Solomon and his son had already made their way over to the states.

In America Solomon succeeded in finding himself a position in the up and coming Longden technologies partly because they were looking for experienced roboticists mainly because his uncle Alastair, who had fled to America after some particular allegations, was willing to pull some strings in order to get him into the company. Since then Solomon had been forced to play puppet to Alastair who now seemed to orchestrate every aspect of his life turning his resentment into full hatred when the opportunity to move to Arboria presented itself he took it immediately, his son who had since moved out of Solomon's house refused to come to Arboria despite Solomon's firm belief that the corperate city was the only safe place left.
