Is their anyone out there? Are we alone? Questions that humans can't help but ask. Humans have a desire to discover the unknown and to answer any and all questions they have. Even if they do not like the answers that they find. In this case, humanity did not find the answer. The answer came to them, in the form of the High Overlord.
In the year 2047, humans have finally established a stable colony on Mars, though still small, it was there. On the Earth, things were starting to get crowded, not to mention tense. The world was on the brink of war, and the UN had been long dissolved. The smallest spark would have been enough to drag the world into the largest war ever seen by the eyes of man. But the most important thing had to do with a very specific organization.
Arch Angel Industries was at the time the worlds largest and most powerful organization. It had it's own private military, and it's own territory through out the world. They had brought many advances to humanity and also acted as mediators between many nations. One could say that the reason the world had yet to burn was Arch Angel. In the year 2047, Arch Angel picked up a strange signal from the edge of our solar system. They had no idea what it was, but knew this one thing, it was slowly approaching. In response to the signal, Arch Angel sent a probe and prepared to activate a orbital defense system that they developed back in 2034 and used only once in 2036 to protect the earth from a certain asteroid.
The probe made it's way to the source of the signal but before anyone knew it, the probe simply vanished. Everyone assumed it was destroyed, and the world began to panic. Tensions rose even higher. Arch Angel tried their best at keeping the world calm, while also preparing for the worse. But only a few months since the signal was detected, it was lost. It entered the asteroid belt and disappeared. A year passed. Nothing. Two years. Nothing. The world slowly started to calm down. And by 2053, the world had all but forgot about the strange signal. But not Arch Angel.
Arch Angel kept preparing. But they would not see the day they were preparing for. In 2055, the home of the CEO of Arch Angel burnt to the ground, with the CEO inside. His body was never found. This marked the end of Arch Angel, as when the new year came, Arch Angel fell. It's head office, and locations across the world where destroyed within minutes of each other. The world was in shock. But this shock did not last long. A week later, the signal returned, this time, over Mars.
Before anyone knew it, the colony on Mars was destroyed and the signal was approaching the Earth. Chaos erupted. And they came out of the shadows. Whisper. An organization that had always existed in the shadows, with the sole purpose of taking over the world, and remaking it as they saw fit. Whisper came, they saw, and they created the spark. The spark that finally caused the world to be enveloped in a war. As the world entered into a war, they forgot about the signal. The signal had stopped moving, remaining behind the moon. It was as if it was watching and waiting.
The war raged, some countries being wiped completely of the map. One third of the worlds population was eliminated, and that was when the source of the signal became known. It was seen in the sky, a massive space ship. It slowly approached the earth, and humanity stopped fighting each other. They stopped fighting each other long enough to watch as their governments fell and the world fell into the grasp of a being known as the High Overlord. This High Overlord sent his forces. His forces where not living though. Everything that came down from the ship was robotic.
Unknown to the world, but back when the signal was first discovered, Whisper made contact by taking over the Arch Angel drone, and made a deal with the High Overlord after they learned the nature of his being. The High Overlord was a conqueror, as such, he was constantly conquering planets, and needed people loyal to him to rule. A deal was struck, Whisper would rule the Earth for the High Overlord, and the High Overlord would continue to become stronger. So, the High Overlords forces where joined with Whisper. By time the years was up, the broken world was in the hands of the High Overlord.
It was then things started to change. The worlds population had dropped to levels that had not been seen since 1 AD or 1 CE. The world's population was now about 170 million. The High Overlord had all remaining humans gathered into ten clusters of about 17 million all over the world. These would slowly be developed into massive cities. Areas around the cities where slowly reclaimed by nature, or remained barren wastelands poisoned by radiation. The way of keeping track of the years was changed. 2055 was to be the last year referred to as AD or CE, now was AC (After Conquest).
By 10 AC, the High Overlords control had been stabilized. The cities had an established hierarchy, and there were no rebel groups (at least not open). As such, the High Overlord departed, but not without leaving a large number of his robots behind, and giving powers to those who aided him. Yes, that's right, the High Overlord was able to give powers to humans. All hope for rebellion was gone. And so the High Overlord left, and humanity was left in the hands of the new powered up leaders of Whisper.
In 32 AC, Whisper official dissolved as the ten cities started to become more and more like independent city states.
In 57 AC, a very strange explosion of unknown energy was detected above both the Earth's poles.
In 142 AC, powers started to appear in all classes but remain rare, fear and hope of rebellions starts to rise.
In 143 AC, laws are passed, forcing all powered people not in the upper class to be registered.
Hello, this is FLH reporting with a brand new RP. This is my normal rules and stuff section, so I suggest reading this, and I do want you to read the part above, as it explains a lot of the lore you need to know. This is a sort of Sci Fi, Superhero, Dystopian RP. Yes, that means dark things are expected. But that doesn't mean you have to be dark. But enough talking, here are a few more lore things you should know. This RP will take place in the city of Suphia (at least for now). The current year is 165 AC.
These are the three layers of each city. The Under Dome, the Dome Surface, and the Sky Ring. Each one is home to different members of the Hierarchy, only connected by the Heaven Spire (the giant tower).
The Under Dome is the largest, and most polluted. Not to mention it also has the highest crime rates in each city and lowest literacy rates.
The Sky Ring is the complete opposite to the Under Dome.
The Dome Surface is the mid way between the two.
The High class are referred to as SR Citizens. Generally, SR Citizens are the rich and high ranking members of the government. Before 57 AC, SR Citizens where the only ones who had the chance to develop powers.
The Middle class are referred to as DS Citizens. DS Citizens are your average people, with good paying jobs, a fair quality of life and etc.
The Low class are referred to as UD Citizens. You never want to be a UD Citizen, but unfortunately most are. Because of where they are forced to live, things are not good for these people. They have little to no education, and often refer to the other classes through slang. Birds is in reference to SR Citizens, and Toppers is in reference to DS Citizens.
The leader of each city is from the SR Citizens and is born into the role. They are referred to as Overlords or Overladies.
