Introduction

"The beast that you saw was, and is not; and shall ascend out of the bottomless pit, and go into perdition: and they that dwell on the earth shall wonder, whose names were not written in the book of life from the foundation of the world, when they behold the beast that was, and is not, and yet is."
-Revelation 17:8 - 17:10

The rapture was the beginning.
Our brothers and sisters, parents, loved ones, children - they left. One morning, we woke up, and they were gone. Empty beds, empty cars. The earth was still as those who remained tried to put the pieces together. Hearts were broken.

Then, He came. The Beast. The Being. He emerged from the sand and soil of the middle-east and ensnared those heartbroken souls with promises of a bright future. Now, He is faded. The Tribulation is over, He said. The wars rage and salt the earth behind them in His name, and disease and famine rock the world. Some people say He will rise again to corrode the earth, and they cry out for God.

Our greatest cities are ruined. They burst through the seams of the earth like infection from a wound, seeping out and slaughtering, torturing, and destroying everything. They engulfed our societies. They hunt us like prey.

We are waiting. Left behind because of our selfishness, greed, and impurity.

Across the globe, people awoke to have been abandoned by those they cared for. You are one of them, and whether you admit to your sins or not, you nowhave to fight to survive, or lay down and resign to death.

Toggle Rules

Characters:
✖Your character MUST take one of the sins. There will be no additions to the list.
✖Please try to keep variety in the character list. I would prefer the story be evenly male and female, and nonbinary.
✖Please try to be as literate as possible, unless illiteracy is a trait of your character.
✖A Face Claim is appreciated, but not required. Try to avoid animated (anime, cartoon) FCs.
✖Details are so important! Include as many details about your characters as possible.
✖Characters must be human.
✖Please try to be inventive with your choice of sin. For example, a character convicted of lust shouldn't be just a promiscuous person - perhaps a rapist, a pimp, or someone who regularly deceives their partners. Be creative and try to think outside of the typical association with the sin you have chosen.

Writing:
✖Please try to write at least one paragraph per post.
✖While this is an adult-themed roleplay (violence, language), some people are sensitive to certain topics. Please avoid what is listed below for triggers, or at least write 'TRIGGER WARNING' or 'TW' at the head of your post, followed by what the trigger is.

Trigger List:
-Animal Violence-
-Sexual Violence-
-Child/spousal Abuse-
-Domestic Violence-

The World:
✖While this is a fantasy-themed roleplay, in that the apocalypse is biblical, please do not use any form of magic, superpower, or celestial affinity.
✖Be realistic. This is a survival story, and water, food, game, and working technology is hard to find. Bathing is uncommon and it isn't easy to find canned food or working vehicles.
✖The climate varies, but overwhelmingly, it is hot. Ungodly hot.
✖While this story is about a worldwide apocalypse, the story will take place in California for a good portion of the story. Characters do not have to begin close together, but it is a good idea to stick within reasonable range of each other.
✖Some portions of the Earth have been terraformed - typically, large cities are now very dangerous, and contain Gates that are severely radioactive. Read more in Places. Keep in mind the effects of radiation in these areas.

Character Sheets:
✖The subjects listed below must be used, but feel free to add to them as you see fit. The more detail the better!
-Name:
-Age: (appearance)
-Physical Description:
-Short biography: (only reveal what would be common knowledge; if your character has hidden motives, keep them hidden!)
-Fears/Flaws/Weaknesses: (At least 2.)
-Strengths:
-Sin: (Why were they not raptured? Choose from the list.)

✖Sins must be reserved. Please post your request in the OOC. There are only 7 slots. You have 3 days maximum from time of reservation to create a character and submit it. If you need and extension for any reason, please PM me.

Character Portrait: Mikhail Tchovsky

The sun peaked at the highest point in the sky, crowned by a few wistful clouds that glimmered orange. Since the Reckoning, the sky was an unfamiliar, dangerous orange, as if the sun were perpetually setting. Even at night, in the dark, the stars and the moon were eternally yellowed. Clouds were scarce - burned away by the waves of heat radiating from the crust of the baking planet.

Mikhail stared up at the sun, a calloused, square hand shielding his face from it's scalding glare. His cheeks were pinked under his beard, his nose peeling a little. Light eyes contrasted with the steep shadows of his rapidly aging face. The sun beat upon him like a lash, and he nearly reeled back from the heat. It seeped through his dark clothing, sticking his boots to his socks and his feet, slicking his unruly dark hair down to his skull and forehead. He almost resented his choice in clothing, if not for the lack of burns across his body. He could handle the irritation on his face and hands. The road spilled out before him, sprawling like the web of a spider stretched a little too thin. He had come to the top of a hill, and stared down the country road, through the fir trees and past the bones of cattle that had grazed in a field a few hundred feet from the hilltop. The fir trees were withering, crisped by the sun. They engulfed a few fields of yellow grass that bubbled off of the slithering asphalt highway. The Southbound was potholed and cracked, if not from the sun, then by trucks. In the distance, smoke billowed from the national forest. He could smell the cinder even five miles away.

The road is unforgiving, he thought, looking at the wear on his boots. Granted, he had walked more than a thousand miles in two weeks. He licked his cracking lips and tore his gaze from the sky. From the hill he could see the valley - the small settlement town, the blaze in the west, fields, the southbound to Los Angeles. He resumed walking, ignoring the twinge of pain from his blisters and bruises. The city of angels. How ironic, he sighed, walking beneath an overpass sign. It was still a month's journey to the gleaming city, the central hub, but he hardly let that bite at his mind.
