GREETINGS AND FELICITATIONS, CHILDREN OF TECHNOLOGY!
I'm back. Even though when I was last here, I got nothing done. That was two years ago, or something like that. I was still a scrawny weasel of a teenager then. Believe it or not, I'm different now! Even though it seems only a scrawny teenager can come up with an idea like a post-apocalyptic neobarbaric renaissance, only a man can be willing to go through with it!
This is CARNIVORE - The Roleplay. Or at least that's what I want it to be. Anyone ever heard of the old thrash/hardcore band CARNIVORE? Regardless, they released a self-titled album about the post-nuclear-apocalypse. They didn't intend on me interpreting it as a concept album, but I did, and thought, "This would make an amazing novel!" So I started writing that novel today, even though it's been in my untermensch of a brain for probably a year now. It's about the rise of new societies in the grand wake of Amerikus (the forsaken grounds of the post-war USA); some want to restore the 50 (police) states of old; some want to create a new, better country (nowhere to go but uphill from here, anyways); some want to create a neobarbaric renaissance that hasn't existed for hundreds if not thousands of years; and some lurk below the ground, gone below to escape the death of the nuclear winter, but have since become abominations of nature and mother science.
The roleplay would be set in one of three timelines:; immediately after the Third Great War, when America is presumed completely annihilated, but survivors exist, and must fight for their lives; fifteen years after the Third Great War, when the mentioned societies of Amerikus exist and are in an infantile stage, and survivors must fight to shape the new creations; or during the course of the novel (your character could be in an novel canonically!), when the societies are set in their paths (for the most part), and the only goal is survival amongst the warring factions and the wastelands!
Character design would be not exactly stat-based, but of some ratings (henceforth, your character will be referred to as "you"):
CHARACTER SHEET - CARNIVORE RP
Name: (Nothing too out of the ordinary; "Sabatawake Sanjuro" or "Jimmy Smith" would be fine, but not "Örkus of Ballcrushing-Might")
Gender: (Male, female, trans, y'know)
Race: (Your ethnicity; Hungarian, Japanese, American, but not something ridiculous, like Vinland of Type O Negative fame)
Appearance: (Tell us what you looks like)
Common Bio: (Here you can put in common knowledge of yourself, such as political views, marital/relationship status, feelings about cannibalism, etc.)
P&P (Psyche & Physique): (Here you should tell us about yourself in terms of strength, intelligence, agility, etc. without the use of stats. I expect you not to abuse this and be the mastermind body-builder with 2 metre long legs. Be realistic. I don't mind if you play a character like yourself.
I will fill out this character sheet for semi and important NPCs as well, and post it in the role play.
Currently, that is all I need to start this. The storyline and plot points will be developed over time. I want our characters to be realistic, so don't post your characters entire life in your character sheet. Tell us during the roleplay in dialogue. I'm open to questions and suggestions, private and public here.
Thanks, guys. It's good to be back.
