The Greater Good?

A disease has gripped the over-populated earth, killing almost everyone in its path and leaving disasterous consequences. Not only did you survive, but your DNA has been altered. But is it for the greater good?

This is the correct board for our roleplay! Please ignore the others as due to an error either on the computer or on the site, we're not sure, it has been posted several times! But this is the one we'll be using! :)

So, along with the whole "powers have limits" thing, which, by the way, is totally reasonable: I was just wondering if it would be acceptable if, say, my character had acute enough hearing/touch&smell sensibilities to tell what people were feeling (anger=faster heartbeat and more heat radiating off the body for instance) and when they were lying, but the disease had rendered her blind? Given that all the "superhumans" have pretty enhanced senses anyway, I think sacrificing better sight for slightly better-than-normally-better (if that makes any sense) touch, smell and hearing would be an okay trade-off, but I leave it to your discretion as the GMs.

Turmoil,
~Kiku~
So let the warm winds range,
And the blue wave beat the shore;
For even and morn
Ye will never see
Thro’ eternity.
All things were born.
Ye will come never more,
For all things must die.

We think that is a brilliant idea! It's different from what we expected, but not unreasonable at all. We like how you have picked another fault with the DNA changing disease, as we didn't want it to be a completely flawless change over, which is why we added the powers part. The fact that she is blind is a really good idea as well, as in reality someone who are blind would have to have more acute senses. We are in total agreement with your idea.
Good luck and we both look forward to seeing your character sheet! :D
Kim and Catherine!

Oh, okay, that's great! Thanks a bunch. Just one minor question, then: what's your preference on character pictures? I've noticed that some people only want anime-style, while some folks like it better if there are none at all. I personally have no preference; I'd just like to match everyone else in that department.

We have no preference on pictures. You can have whatever you like, we're not too bothered on that one. :) Ideally we would prefer that all characters had a picture of some sort of course.

Ok, Kurokiku you have been accepted with flying colours. I love you character and I'm sure Catherine will too! :D
Syrafay I already sent you a PM, but you're also accepted.
If you'll just let me and Catherine get up a character sheet and allow a few more to join, then we'll start right away. Basically your character should just be waking up from the disease as each of them have had it but most never wake up. So this'll be the first time they wake up after having the disease.
Kim~
P.s If me and catherine are together we'll end each ooc post with both of our names, if we're apart then it'll be seperate names, as we're friends outside of this site in real life! Thought I'd just let you know! :D

Eheh, I figured you guys knew each other! =) Seems like that tends to be the case when people co-GM.

I'm looking at the other characters, and I'm pretty excited. Everyone looks so interesting. I like that the disease gave Madeline her legs back, and that she seems like a very flawed individual, which will make things more fun! I think that last bit carries over to most everyone, actually, so I'm really looking forward to how we all interact. A few more additions like the ones we've got, and this will be great, I think!

Still pretty new at this, but I promise I'll try my best!

Yeah I think we'vee certainly got a range of different characters. I've just accepted another by the name of Scott and I'm very pleased that we have yet another flawed character who is actually mentally troubled. I look forwards to seeing what he will do when he gets going. I think we're hoping for a few more, but even six of us would be enough to start and so with that said I'll get us going by posting the first post! I'm rather excited! :)

I'm sure you'll be fine Kiku and we'll help you out if you need it! Please don't be afraid to ask questions and pick apart bits in the plot that might not make sense. We're open to suggestion and we love to help! :)

Okay, thanks! I'll probably not be able to post regularly for a couple days; I'm just ending a vacation in Europe and will be out or on planes until the 5th or so, but I'll try and get on during my long annoying layovers lol. Till then!

Sorry I took a bit longer to get a character together. I had to fish up some ideas. I should get him up soon, looking forward to it. Just a quick question, Where will this be based? And what effect has the disease had on the environment?
The Spice Melange occurs on only one planet in the entire universe.
The Planet Arrakis, also known as Dune.
He who controls Arrakis, controls the Spice. He who controls the Spice, controls the universe.

No worries Kiku, whenever you're ready to post is fine with us! And if needs be then we can plot summarise if you get too behind, but that shouldn't happen as it's only a couple of days! :)

And take your time SkyFlying-Falcon, we don't mind, as long as you're happy with the character. Well it's based in a city that is similar to London, by the name of Exodar. If you don't know much about London, well basically it's a very very busy area with it's posh bits, it had run-down bits, council estates and so on...It was a big city populating just under six million people.
Also, we don't really want this disease to effect the enviroment...well at least not yet. ;)
The disease was designed for humans in mind and nothing else. There is no way that it can have any effect on anything other than humans unless it mutates again and we have ideas for this later on in the plot. I consulted Catherine and she agrees that there are no effects on the enviroment as of yet.
I hope that answers your questions and don't hesitate to ask more. :D

Okay, I should have read that it was in London from the intro, I think I know enough to get by. Okay, I didn't think it would've, I just had the image of a biological hazard wasteland. I guess the city will serve that purpose. Okay, a few more questions, what about primates? Monkeys and the like? Because they apparently are similar to humans? I'm asking this because there is a zoo in London, I know that much. Just checking, although it looks clear enough. The disease spread three days before the events of the posts. How quick had people begun succumbing, as in the total population?

There is not a biological waste land... Not yet anyway, Maybe the diease can spread later. I think that the disease will not have spread to anything except humans yet, though there is a chance it could evolve later. I think that as for the zoo, the animals will no doubt die out soon anyway as there will be no one to feed them. Though perhaps some of the animals could break out? If you want to explore that in your posts feel free. But as for now remember that all the wildlife birds etc, are all fine. Dont wory to much about where the city actually is just imagine it to be equal to london with the rich parts, and the rougher parts. Also there is the government buildings in the same place, though they didn't here about the disease quick enough to be protected.

The disease has only been wiping people out world-wide in the last couple of weeks, but by now when the posts have started everyone who is going to die has. It has probably only been around our city and country about a week, and it has already caused mass deaths. Remember there will be no electricity or power of any sort. I hope that answers your questions, feel free to ask as many questions as you like.

Yes, that has answered my questions. They were merely curious. I'll wait for a few more other people to make their opening posts, just so I can get more of a hang of the world (sort of), before I make mine. Okay, thank you. I wanted to get an idea of the time span to see how long my character suffered. BTW, I've got a couple of new questions spawned from your answers but I won't clog up this thread with them. And really they're probably irrelevant.
Also, I'm archiving all the posts that go on here. They'll be saved on my computer in order so that when the roleplay pages make them disappear they'll be accessible.

Thanks Catherine... Hmm, am I the only one here who doesn't sign my name? Yay!
