2025: Water World (AH/Science Fantasy) (OOC/Signups)

Postby United Anorbonum » Wed Sep 12, 2018 8:10 pm

It all started in 2018, it appeared that mankind would enter a golden age. But unfortunately, one man came along to ruin it. His name was Xi Jinping, leader of China. On September 18th 2018, the largest explosion in recorded history occurred in the South China Sea. Later that day, Xi Jinping had announced that it had detonated a bomb equivalent to 400 megatons of tnt. (Or about 8 Tsar Bombas)

On September 20th, reports from The Maldives said that unnaturally high tides have swallowed 2 of its islands. Similar reports started coming out of the rest of the world as well. On September 21st, Philippine oceanographers discovered that a subterranean deposit of water has breached into the oceans.

On September 23th, the U.N. declared total sanctions against China. The Chinese economy collapsed within a week afterwards. The collapse of China resulted in a global financial crash just 10 years the great recession. Only being made worse since major coastal cities are being flooded.

In November of 2018, things started to get worse. By then, over 23 million have died from flooding on a global scale. Meanwhile, American spies in North Korea discovered that they were making nukes again. A few days later, every city that has survived the waves in both Japan and South Korea were destroyed. This proved to be the breaking point.

China and Pakistan launched nuclear attacks on India, ASEAN, and Australia. New Delhi being destroyed by a 400 MT nuke. Israel launched attacks on Lebanon, Palestine, Syria, Jordan, And Egypt. Iran launched chemical attacks on Saudi Arabia and the UAE. All of Africa collapsed, Latin America is in chaos, religious groups start preparing for their 'Judgement Day'. While others launch terrorist attacks around the world. And all the while, the tides are still rising. Humanity seemed doomed.

But then, in March of 2021, it stopped. The oceans stopped rising. By then, 5.3 billion people have died. The world is in anarchy, the seas have risen by about 1 Kilometer. Groups of people start forming factions. But something fishy has also happened.

The radiation from the nukes, flooded nuclear plants, and flooded missile silos have leaked into the oceans, causing sea life to begin to mutate. It's even mutating birds and surviving mammals. Add to that gangs of pirates roaming the seas, and supernatural events increasing in number. The world has changed significantly.

It is now 2025, the world population is about 2.1 billion. The largest stable city on the planet is Phoenix, Arizona. (It would be Mexico City if drug cartels didn't exist) various factions exist around the world. Old social media platforms have become areas for survival information, trades, and these pirates have modern technology. What's stopping you from rising to the top?

Don't bumpspam. One bump per 24-hour period or once the thread has fallen off the first page, whichever takes longer.

If you wish for assistance, contact a P2TM RP Mentor.

Hey United Anorbonum,

I saw the advertisement and have a question. Can you give me an idea of what supernatural occurrences and fantastic elements are taking place in this setting? At the moment I'm imagining fish people (fantastic element) and the Divining of Searoutes (Supernatural element using spirits to find land in the vast ocean).

Yeah, stuff like that.

Alright, also your OP doesn't mention those elements so I recommend mentioning that the RP is supernatural and fantastic as the present OP is rather mundane. I certainly had no idea about the elements until the advertisement.

I'm guessing players can be fish people. Any advice on filling out the 'ethnicity' section for such characters? If players can't it should be noted.

A bit unusual but understood.

By the way... can players do something like Brink?

No I meant have a near future 2025 floating city. But your blunt responses are killing my enthusiasm. I personally wouldn't join this just to fight one another- seems counter productive. But since you are looking for players like that I'll just withdraw.

Edit: Like I don't find anything entertaining about text battles- there are not real mechanics to govern who is hurt and all comes down to what players are willing to suffer wound wise. It's all just a 'he says / she says' back and forth of everyone upping each other and no one actually getting hurt.

Oh you mean that? Then no. They wouldn't have the time or money to build a floating city.

Edit: I understand where you're coming from that you don't like text battles. But, you don't need to kill Everyone you see. That would be dumb.

... how about a pirate gang that has fused ships together into a floating village base of some kind? *asking for other potential players*

Now I can see that being a possibility. That would be much more realistic then a giant floating city.

hahahah Now you've got me excited again :) I don't play pirates so I don't think I'm yet ready to join but hearing such will possibly be on the IC has me interested in keeping up with the RP :) Seeing how it goes. Like I don't think I'll enjoy the conflicts but I'd still look into them hoping to see some alliances form :) HEY! If anyone does do this me and you will probably end up sending TGs back and forth talking about it! Speculating on what will happen to it and what the player does with it :D

I like your enthusiasm about this. The angle I was originally going for was similar to 'The Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker'.

I wouldn't have guessed :D I'm a great fan of Zelda but the OP doesn't seem to have communicated what you where going for very well. I know my early RPs had that happen- id' get interest but those who came didn't have the same vision I did as I didn't have the best OP post. At the most my thought went to the actual Water World movie rather then a science fantasy setting. Science Fantasy is one of my favorite genres. Having a bit of Fantasy and Science Fiction which I both enjoy.

It's nice to see someone who likes science fantasy. That was my intention for this RP. This might turn into something that alot of people would want to see. And I got more ideas that I could use to improve it.

It certainly can.

Hey, these guys may be able to help out. They where involved in the Gamma World RPs and thus are familiar with the genre.

Great Confederacy of Commonwealth States ; an NS Mentor who can certainly provide pointers on creating a great OP post.

Charmera; part of the Titans RP group but hasn't really been in an RP for a while. But he's still on NS and was Co-Op of some of the GW RPs- so he knows what is needed to be a success

Shadowwell; experienced player, and world builder- likely to be of some help

They helped me, and may help you :)
