Cold Metal

Cold Metal

0 INK

  1. In the city of Daedalus there is an increasing amount of illegals, people with illegal modifications. Police and detectives are investigating. But soon it might come to a war between the police and a syndicate.

583 readers have visited Cold Metal since Aniihya created it.

Introduction

It is the year 2214. Technology, especially cybernetics has gotten far. The city of Daedalus is known for its high crime rate, murders, corrupt officials and illegals. people with illegal cybernetic modifications. Just recently there have been reports of ninjas, people with stealth modifications, killing several known people, most of them wealthy and company owners. Hacking is also a problem in Daedalus, since it is now possible to hack cyborgs as long as they dont have an organic brain. Hackings can lead to many things such as people committing crimes without wanting to, memories being wiped and even electronic suicides (the self destruction of a cyborg body). The police and some detective are working on a special case that is assumed to have something to do with most of the cybernetic crimes in Daedalus. A syndicate is behind the incidents, but the syndicates name and most of its members remain unknown. But as a policeman gets killed by a hacker, the case has been raised to a higher priority. Now it is up to a group of chosen individuals to investigate. These individuals are known for their expertise and their skills. They wont be so easy to kill and pose somewhat of a threat to the syndicate. They now have to deal with constant attacks and have declared personal war on the attackers.


Cybernetics: Cybernetics is the term for the mechanical and electronic parts that replace parts of the human body. There are five types of cybernetic parts:

Casual: Casual parts include simple limb replacements, integrated communications devices and medical replacements. Everyone has access to these and dont need any permission or license for these parts. The percentage of the population which have integrated telecommunications devices is about 60%. For cybernetic limbs it is about 25%.

Luxury/Media: These are parts for personal pleasure such as integrated music players, tv tuners, cybernet cards, color changing hair, holographic projectors, game consoles etc. While music players, cybernet cards and tv tuners belong to the less invasive parts, holographic screens and game consoles may require the replacement of organs with artificial ones, a new skeleton, synthetic skin, servo motors and so on. Most media and luxury parts are available without a license but the law requires a person to be at least 14 years of age to obtain these. Many people own at least one media part.

Service: Service parts include a calculating chip for store owners, built-in utensils, data storage enhancements, cybernet splitters, etc. The obtain these you have to go through a lot of bureaucracy and need to prove your area of employment. For data storage, only required for larger database capacity.

Special: Special parts are for example full body enhancements, alloyed skeletons, muscle replacements, replacing your brain for a computing system with data storage, identity changes etc. Special permission is required here. One condition to obtaining the permission is to have no crime record.

Military: Military grade parts are all weapons, artificial muscles with superhuman strength, artificial eyes far better than human eyes, targeting software, speed enhancements, hacking modules and so on. Only members of the military are allowed to have these. And getting these makes you permanent property of the government unless you are very trusted and prioritize public safety and good values.


Out of the cyborgs with military grade parts there are different classes:

Ninjas: Ninjas normally have camo modules, nightvision, one or two weapons (mostly just a knife and/or a silenced pistol). They are strong against most other classes except for runners and tanks since runners are extremely fast and tanks have such heavy armor that not even 0.50 cal sniper ammo can penetrate it.

Runners: Runners are probably the weakest in firepower of the military classes. Their only abilities are to run fast and react fast. They are mostly used to be messengers.

Hackers: Hackers hack the memory bases of their enemies to either control them, manipulate them, obtain information or even kill them. They have very fast processing units. Their weaknesses are people with organic brains and tanks as tanks are deemed unhackable.

Tanks: Only three tanks exist. They were military experiments. But as 90% of the tanks had to be killed due to losing their sanity, the projects were cancelled and the last tanks were put into the civilian society and belong to the most lawful members of it too. Tanks have two forms: a human form and a battle form. They have an arsenal of weaponry and superhuman strength. But their disadvantages are that they are no faster than humans and are very, very heavy. For them runners are unkillable and ninjas are hard to kill. Due to heavy armor they are only vulnerable to other tanks and very heavy weaponry. Tanks who arent of the original three are mostly cheaply modified and pose little threat to the originals while they are strong for other classes. Tanks have the ability to repair themselves by consuming metal parts, mostly cyborgs or androids.

Troopers: Troopers are the cybernetically enhanced soldiers of the military and possess better than human qualities such as they are faster, more durable and stronger than the average human, but only by a limited bit. They are good for allround combat and are the most common military grade cyborgs.

Medics: Medics have no special abilities else than repairing other cyborgs and typical doctor type duties.

Support: Supports normally just hang around at command centers and give the cyborgs outside intel. They have a higher calculation ability and can call up information from the cybernet within seconds.

Kranor followed Ishtar inside. He saw a pretty nice cafe, and then he said, "Let's go there."

He pointed to the cafe. He tooke Ishtar's arm in his and walked to the cafe. They walked to a table. Kranor then pulled up a chair for Ishtar, and waited patiently for her to sit. He looked at the top menu. He saw chocolate milk. An original drinks, only for original people. he decided to get that. As he waited, he noticed a fedora he didn't have. He wanted to buy it, a rainbow coloured one, and then a matching suit. Kranor decided on the way out he was going to buy it.

Ishtar sat down at the cafe with Kranor. "I will have a choco macciato." Ishtar ordered. She didnt mind about drinking or eating since she had artificial organs. It wasnt like she was a robot that would rust or malfunction in contact with water based fluids. "I see that look in your eyes. You have made your decision or you desire something. Or you do even both." Ishtar said already noticing Kranors desire for the fedora hat. "Its a nice day isnt it? The sun is shining, barely any clouds, the warm temperature and the best thing is no crime for the whole morning. I guess this will be a real day off after all."

"Hey don't go off saying there's no crime, Ishtar. Crime just might be happening at this moment," Kranor said while nodding in agreement.

He ordered a large chocolate milk. "Oh, don't you love the look in my eyes when I desire, or made a decision about something?" He asked.

A few minutes later, the drinks were up and Ishtar got hers, and Kranor got his. He started sipping. "Okay, I think I made this question when i was about twelve... I don't know, but here it is: It is a colour inside of a colour. How is that possible?" Kranor said.

"You are right. But what I mean, there is no crime serious enough for us to be called in yet." Ishtar said. Then what Kranor said sort of made Ishtar blush a little. "Uhh. I was just wondering. Its just the way you looked." Then Kranor said something about a color inside a color. "What do you mean by that? I do not quite understand what you are trying to ask." What Kranor said was rather confusing to Ishtar. They got their drinks and Ishtar took a sip. It had a warm feeling although it was actually a boiling hot macciato. Nowadays her senses were mostly just synthetically made by her artificial organs and her slightly modified yet human brain. She couldnt really feel pain anymore. The boiling hot coffee was dampened to a mere warmth and falling of a building would feel like a pinch. She had a particular sensitiveness to not crush every single object she touch compared to more klutzy cyborgs with more primitive technology in them.

"Do you want to go to the nearby park afterwards? Or maybe go outside city limits and make a flight?" Ishtar said. She then shook her head and said: "Forget the second idea. It probably just annoys you."

Kranor heard what she said, as he took a sip. Mmmmm, this is an original drink he thought.
He nodded his head in agreement when she said there's no serious crime where we have to be called in. "And to my question," He started as he pulled to different coloured markers and a piece of paper, "You see, colour a circle with one marker, then colour a smaller circle inside the other circle, and then with the first marker, colour over the smaller circle. A colour inside of a coulour." He said as he was colouring.

"Thats easy. It means it hadnt mixed all the way. You know the cocoa powder needs to dissolve in the milk and if it doesnt dissolve all the way then you get the swirl or the color in the color. Imagine it is like if you make tea and dip the bag into the hot water. You will get a cloud of the essence from the tea leave and it is a color in a color. You and your questions." Ishtar then sighed.

Then a special report blared onto a holographic tv screen: "Just in. Councilman Sanderson was assassinated just moments ago. It is assumed that the perpetrators are part of the syndicate. Sanderson was very disliked by the syndicate and many other group because his strict regulation of modifications and allowing unorthodox measures to be used against illegals including using advance cyborgs against the syndicate. The assassins have been followed to building between the city hall and the central city mall."

"Crap. I hope they dont call us in because of this." Ishtar complained.

"Well, I hope we get to finish our drinks before they call us in. No doubt they will call us in," Kranor said as he watched the screen.

"And to what you said about cocoa mix and tea," he started, "That's true."

His phone buzzed. He picked it up and listened to what the person had to say, "You, and if you are with Ishtar Vellesia, have to go to the building between the city hall and the central city mall."

"We'll be there," Kranor said as he hung up, "Let's finish our drinks and go next door. But before we go next door, I would like to buy something..."

His eyes trailed off to the rainbow suit. Kranor sipped his drink until it was empty. He left money for both the drinks. "I'll meet you at the place."

Ishtar headed over to the building where the assassins were holding up. She walked into a back alley. Two panels on her back opened up and a white light came from the openings and her feet. She flew up to the eighth floor of the building and burst through the window. She could hear ruckus in the building. "What was that?" A voice said from a floor below her. "Go check!" Footsteps were to be heard from the staircase. "Kill or capture?" Ishtar asked over her telecommunications system to her chief. "Capturing would be a better option but you have the go to kill if they attack with gunfire." Her chief said.

The door to the staircase opened and a man with a gun in his hand appeared. "Surrender now and I will let you live." Ishtar said. Then the man said: "Never! I wont let a government pig like you control our city!" "Your city? This is the peoples city, not that of the syndicate. All I am is merely a protector of the lawful citizens of the city." Ishtar responded. Angered, the man began shooting at her with a smg. The automatic fire barely affected Ishtar. Ishtar began to giggle. "You need more firepower than that to even damage me." Her giggle soon turned into a laugh, a maniacal laugh. The man removed his hand revealing a gun barrel. "Oh so you are an illegal? Then it will make this a bit more fun." Ishtar said and started walking towards the man. The man started to shoot at Ishtar only to the effect of making bits of her artificial skin crumble off.

"Hurry up, up there! The helicopters are supposed to come any minute now." A voice said from a walkie-talkie to the man. The man then began to scream to his colleague: "I need help up here. This thing is barely effected by gunfire!" "Oh. Now I am a thing? That's mean to say." Ishtar said almost to him. Suddenly a bang from the side knocked Ishtar off her feet.

Another had come up wielding a 50 caliber sniper rifle. "Thanks man." The one said to the other. To them it seemed as if Ishtar was dead. The looked at her seeing half of her artificial skin come off her face and said: "What is she?" "Probably a cyborg cop or so." Another said. "Don't come too close to one of them. They could rip your head off or tear you in half without fully using their strength. By the way, that smile of hers is scary."

"Hehehehe." Ishtar was still alive. She was just faking it. "Hahahaha!" Her laughter became crazier by the second. The two men choked with shock. The one man emptied his sniper on her but she was still laughing. "That tickles!" Ishtar said as she got up. She pulled her pistol and shot one guy in the foot. She then grabbed the other guy by the collar and threw him in a chair. "Sit! Tehehe." She said. "Now you will witness the painful death of your friend here." The fingers on her right hand turned into metallic claws and she bore into the mans wound to take the bullet back out. "Sorry but we will have to amputate it." Ishtar said with a seriously face before reverting back to psychotic laughter. Her left hand split in half and out came a rotating saw. She then cut off the mans foot with the rotating saw. The man screamed in agony: "I dont want to die!" "Oh? You don't want to die? You should have thought about it before becoming a criminal." Ishtar said with a sinister smile. Then the other said: "You can't do this! We have rights!" "I was instructed that if you resist arrest, then you give up your rights and can be killed." Ishtar answered. Then she tore the injured man apart with joy. "Wait until our friend comes! He is a tank. And the helicopters will beat you too! The entire building is full of our guys!" The man on the chair said. Then Ishtar went up close to him and said: "Then I guess it will be raining blood and oil today." She then threw the man out of the window.

Kranor walked out of the mall and saw someone falling from the building. He jumped, suit and fedor in a bag in his left hand, and caught the one who was falling and burst through a window. "'Sup?" he asked.

The guy said, "Get off me!!" Obviously scared.

Damn Ishtar, you really had to do this? Kranor thought as he jumped out the window to the ground.

The police took the man in handcufs and put him in a vehicle. Kranor jumped to see where Ishtar was. Eighth floor. He rocked in and as he landed on the floor he looked at the bloofy mess on the floor "Daammmn Ishtar, you really had to do that?" Kranor asked, as he was pudging the dead body.

"I got the order to kill if they resisted arrest with gunfire and I did so." Ishtar said with a sinister smile, obviously not regaining her sanity. "They said the whole building was a syndicate nest and that helicopters are underway and that they have a tank friend who wants to get us." She then laugh and said: "The syndicate will watch us take one of their supposed tanks apart and get rid of a portion of their staff. Lets go and take care of this. This is going to be fun!" It wasn't sure if she was a sadistic, destroy the bad guys insane or a go all out, kill people and maybe kill innocents, megalomanic insane.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Oooook... Do we know where he is?
I mean if he's jumped ship what do we do, carry on without him or call it a day?

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

I am waiting for dudedude

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

So we're dead... Just like that?
Weak.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Jolly good old sport!

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Yeah you are accepted and I have made the first post.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Take I'm accepted then?
Looking forward to getting started.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Well I will soon make the intro post.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Heads up that I might have some trouble posting from next Wednesday to Sunday. Going on a trip and I don't know the state of the internet I will have. I'll be sure to try an wrap up any major char interaction going on before that time and go into a soft hibernation mode, so I don't hold up the RP. If I somehow end up holding it up though, feel free to control my char to get them out of the immediate action. Just do you best if it comes to that, I'm fine with it.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

This looks pretty damn interesting!
Posted up a character, hope it's all good.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Dont really know. I will make a roleplayers wanted thread.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Made a char and submitted, PM if I need to change anything. This sounds pretty interesting, wonder why there's not more people in it yet.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

Fine. But you need to change the modification since tanks can only weigh like humans in human form and not battle form. In battle form, they are supposed to be slow, otherwise they wouldnt really have any weaknesses anymore. It would be unfair to the other classes. Tank are already overpowered enough.

Re: [OOC] Cold Metal

How do you like my Char. Ac. Ter?
