Cloud Nineteen

Cloud Nineteen

Even a utopia can have dark secrets. (Open to all.)

Introduction

Alex rests back in his chair at the butcher's stall in Market Square, the smell of the nearby bakery overrun by the noxious filth running through the pipes overhead, but he doesn't mind. Just another day in paradise...
Business was good, but with the recent population boom, he wasn't surprised: with nearly two hundred million carnivores in the city, they have to get fresh meat from somewhere.
"Mr. Johnson?" The voice comes from the adjacent stall on Alex's left. It comes from a figure recognisable only as a city guard. Beside him, another surly guard. Both of them wore navy blue helmets with dark visors covering their eyes, the artificial lights gleaming on the gloss painted metal.
"Y-yes?" stammers the stall keeper.
"Your application for upgrading has been accepted. Please come with us"
"What about my stall?"
"You want to be upgraded, don't you?" The other guard's lower face is one of disgust; he obviously has more enjoyable tasks to perform than upgrade the scum of the city.
Mr. Johnson nods rapidly, almost panicked.
"Then you will come with us, won't you?"
"Yes, yes, yes I will."
"Good. Let's go."
Without another word, the guards set off along the row of stalls and out of sight, with Mr. Johnson following in their wake. As if on cue, a group of small kids rush up to the now-empty stall, and start filling their pockets with the many fruits on show. It takes a moment for Alex to realise what's happening, before he snatches up a stick, and shoo's them away.
"Beat it, kids!" he yells as they run off with their petty takings, then he returns to his chair, frowning. That's the fourth upgrade approved this month. Usually there's only ever four in a year for people like us and he's poorer than I am... I wonder how someone like him got approved.

-----

2211AD. 'Summer'
Alex Crawford is a Tier 3 Merchant in the city known as Cloud 19. His job doesn't pay well, but it gets him by. Growing ever suspicious of the increasing number of Upgrades from Tier 3 to Tier 2, he begins poking around and, along with the strangers whose elevator he hijacks, finds one of the city's best-kept, darkest secrets.

Player character slots are currently unlimited in number and limited only by your imagination. Players may be from any of Tiers 1-4, and reflects their occupation and initial location in the Cloud. They do not necessarily know Alex Crawford (in fact, it's probably better if they don't for now.), but they can if you want them to. You may not play as a city guard or city official unless you ask my permission first (do not post characters with guard occupations without my go or they will be declined immediately).

Tier
  1. Highest Level - The only tier with access to natural sunlight, the wealthiest and often the most powerful inhabitants live here (rich businessfolk, city officials). The best facilities available for the rich and famous. Only around 5% of the population 'can' live in tier 1.
  2. Wealthy merchants and businessmen/women live here, along with people with technological or medical skills. Guard living quarters found on this tier. Can only support around 15% of population.
  3. Poorer merchants and skilled tradesmen live here. Basic accommodation and more cramped than tier 2. Supports around 30% of the population.
  4. Unskilled workers and labourers live here. Severely cramped. Living spaces not maintained at all. Hygiene is a lot poorer than even Tier 3. Ghettos are known to be more comfortable. Supports about half the population.
  5. Deemed uninhabitable by city officials after the walls were breached during the Acid Smog of 2172AD. Only specially sanctioned repair workers are put to work here to repair the walls, and access is restricted to civilians at all times. This has become a high priority operation after the recent population increase in the city.
