Freaks

Freaks

0 INK

Limitless clean energy has been discovered. The world is experiencing the greatest peace it has ever known. But how clean are the hands of those who run the operation?

816 readers have visited Freaks since Ceoltior created it.

Introduction

2024: The worlds soil is nearly depleted. Waters polluted and world war 3 seems near. A dig site in Africa discovers the salvation of the earth. An object that seems to provide limitless clean power.

2025: The countries all begin work on a conduit to exploit the power of the object, dubbed "element zero" or "eezo" or "the core." By late 2026 every country has a conduit to the eezo core and is supplied with the energies it possesses.

2027: The factions of the world unite under one banner of world hierarchy with world leader Ryan Anterius at the head, leading the world into a golden age of prosperity in all areas of cultural development.

late 2028: Eezo has been reverse engineered and uses in remote availability are being explored. The first program to be initiated is the spacecraft branch

2029: Cases of unexplained death and even more unexplained supernatural happenings are reported. The public enters a slight panic wondering what is causing this. Supernatural occurrences are soon discovered to be people with strange and sometimes destructive powers. Deaths and supernatural appearances are soon found to be closely related, all evidence indicates that the supernaturals are responsible for the deaths of civilians. Supernaturals are dubbed "Freaks." The Freak Capture and Detention program is initiated.

Your task as a freak is to uncover the veil of lies that the hierarchy has spewed to make the world discriminate against you, and to discover the truth behind the hierarchy's motives.

Disclaimer: some of you may have already noticed similarities to Mass Effect and Mass Effect 2. I would like to note that this is only inspired by the Mass Effect games and has a few similar names and references. This is not ME or ME2. It's odd to do a text-based role-play of a game that is already an RPG. Mass Effect and Mass Effect two and the names and characters within both games belong to BioWare and EA games.

Toggle Rules

- No g-modding. It breaks immersion and can ruin plots rapidly.
- Respect is a top priority. If you have a problem with someone or something PM the GM.
- Try to create posts that are one paragraph minimum. More is appreciated though. Just no novel writing.
- You're free to roleplay as someone other than a freak. A bounty hunter, perhaps even someone that works under the hierarchy that wants to get rid of freaks. PM the GM if you want to take this path.
- You must begin as a human in this roleplay. The eezo coursing through freaks veins sometimes gives them traits of other species but it counts as a power to have natural weapons. (EG: claws, teeth, venom, tentacles, tail, etc)
- And have oodles of fun and entertainment!

The air hummed with the hustle and bustle of world of the future. The world that was the upper city of the African city-state metropolis. Holoboards flashed their brightly colored advertisements, the lights of the superhighway vehicles shone off in the distance. Zipping up and down the roads at supersonic speeds. Earth was experiencing a golden age of prosperity since eezo had been discovered, but with several billion people in the world and fear of the supernaturals known as "freaks," it was by no means perfection. A testament perhaps to the imperfectness of this world was the figure that was running through the streets of the upper city without any regard to the people there. Pushing them violently out of his way and others he flat out knocked down. A band of other rather grungy looking individuals were running through the path made by the delinquent in hot pursuit. The fleeing character suddenly tripped and fell into a tumble after running into too many people. The ratty group of gruff people charging towards the prone figure who got up and just as someone was about to jump on him, flew to the side as though yanked by some invisible force. The railing was high to ensure that people didn't fall to their deaths over the side but this individual looked as though someone or something had just pulled him up and over the edge of the tall fence. Several nearby people gasped as he tumbled over the edge apparently to his demise. The gritty crew just looked on in silence for a moment then shrugged and walked off. Meanwhile further down the bridge the same man who had tumbled off hopped over the edge of the fence back onto the bridge. Looking around briefly and then shoving his hands in his pockets, turning his head downwards, and walking, trying to be as inconspicuous as possible. An odd stance to take when you just walked over a ledge that was supposed to be a one-way trip.

Laurence Rightford stood on the bridge, watching as a man chased by a group of ruffians threw himself off the edge of the bridge. He watched as people gasped as he disappeared, then shrugged and carried on with their days. There were too many people in the world as it was to concern ones self with just one. Pulling the lapel of his coat up closer around his neck, he turned away from the spot where the man was stood and started to walk off the bridge. Then he spotted something - just barely - out of the corner of his eye. Ahead of him, walking once more along the bridge, his head bowed, was the man who he had seen fly off the side. For a moment, Laurence thought his eyes deceived him. However, after examining the individual a little closer, he was certain it was him.

"He's a freak..." Laurence said to himself, thinking carefully. Settling on a course of action, he began to speed up, powering towards the individual as fast as he could without arousing too much suspicion. Soon, he had caught up and taking a deep breath, reached out and tapped the man on the shoulder. As he did, his body shimmered, and a moment later he was an identical clone of the man. Leaning in close to him, allowing him to see that they were now identical in appearance, he whispered in his ear "We need to stick together. Come with me."

Not waiting for a response, he pushed forward past the man and walked off down a small, deserted side-alley.

The man trying to remain inconspicuous whirled when he was touched, his fists up as if ready for a fight but upon seeing himself he started and stepped back "The hell!?" He nearly yelled but Laurence pushed past him and he just looked around wondering if he had just seen a ghost or an angel or something strange. Yet there were more common things in this world than ghosts and angels, freaks. Konrad frowned and walked towards the side 'alleyway' it was more like just a less traveled bridge since in upper city there weren't many alleyways. He took a few of his steel needles off of his hip in case this freak was one of the malicious kinds or one of the seekers that worked for the Hierarchy to capture other freaks.

He stepped into the alleyway baring a small vibro-knife and the iron needles in his other hand. His teeth were gritted and he had a very hostile and angry look on his face. Although he had put his goggles down it was still easy to tell he was mad.

"Who the hell are you?" He said "And what do you mean 'we need to stick together' you trying to pull something on me?! You one of those seeker bastards?" His voice was raised but he wasn't yelling, and besides, there wasn't anyone on this abandoned bridge to hear accept themselves. Which also meant there would be no one to help Laurence if he got the man with the knife angry enough to use the weapon. Apparently this hadn't gone as originally imagined.

Frank Miller, a freak, would be running thru the streets knocking down everything in his path in attempt to slow, two Agents behind him, down. The shorter Agent would be yelling out towards the freak "Freeze, stop right now!" he said between breaths soon running out of energy. Zotack would pass the other agent not slowing down, not getting tired, almost catching up with the freak, and showing no emotions. The other agent stopped running himself watching zotack as he kept going.

Frank looked behind him running as fast as he could but Zotack seemed to be getting closer. "Leave me alone!" Frank yelled as he stopped turned around lifted his arms and a blizzard seemed to shot towards zotack. Before the icy wall hit him he grabbed a rack of cheap sunglasses next to him throwing it into the snow storm.

When the object hit the icy beam a huge cloud of snow and mist flew everywhere. Frank waved his hand clearing the area of mist around him. When the cloud was gone Zotack wasn't there but the cheap sunglasses rack was frozen in mid air.
Frank looked around not believing this. He turned and Zotack, covered in some frost, stood behind him his gun pointed at Frank's head.

Frank fell to his knees "oh, god please don't kill me! Just take me in to prison! Let me be one of the seekers, just please don't kill..."he cried before he was cut short by a bullet to the brain.

Zotack looked at the body emotionless and turned around looking at the crowd of people. "move along folks nothing to see here." he said lowering his gun to his side. He pulled out his blackberry and dialed a number. "yes, you might want to collect some before the bodies taken" he hung up and dialed on his phone again. "target down requesting clean up team." he said.

"I'm not trying to pull anything," Laurence said, stepping forward into a better light. As he did, his appearance changed back to his own.
"And i'm not a seeker," he continued "We could be useful to each other. You see the way things work around here? Our kind are murdered and imprisoned. We've all lost people close to us. How long do you think we can keep on running?"

He paused as a cold breeze rushed across them both. Looking at the man, who was clearly angry and suspicious, he wondered if he'd picked the right freak to reach out to.

"So tell me, what did you get stuck with? That bridge trick's got me stumped. Flying? Something like that yeah?" he said, a bit more casually, trying to calm the man down and show him that he didn't want any violence "I can look like other people, as you've probably guessed."

He decided to leave out the fact he had to be in physical contact with them to do so, not wanting to put all his cards on the table right away.

"Let me get to the point. I want to shut down the Eezo Operation. But i can't do it alone. If you can tell me you don't wanna get payback on the people who did this to us, walk away now and i won't try to stop you. If not, help me." Even as he said the words, Laurence knew he was being too forward and saying far too much. It could easily blow up in his face and he took a deep breath as he waited for the man's reply.

"I ain't telling you anything." Konrad said angrily but paused to let Laurence speak his case.

"Wait, you want to shut down the worlds power?! The hell kind of mad fanatic are you?" He paused again. Laurence probably felt the sinking feeling that he was alone in his quest but then the man spoke again.

"What kind of people would we be getting payback at? I got a score to settle with the bastards that took my sister off to wherever the hell they take freaks." He looked around "I'll help you if you help me. We find my sister first though just so I know you ain't gonna back out on me after we do whatever it is you want to do!" He turned around and stopped after hearing a gunshot nearby.

"Stay here. . ." He paused searching his mind for a name but then rolled his eyes giving up "whoever the hell you are." He grumbled and walked to the end of the side bridge and looked back into the store. A tall man wearing odd clothing was there with a gun in his hand and a walkie-talkie in his other.

He spoke "Target down requesting clean up team." Konrad bit his lip anxiously. A hierarchy member? No, he didn't dress it. There was frost around and a dead man, presumably a freak. Who would want to kill a freak if they were from the Hierarchy? He just shook his head and then turned around back to Laurence.

"Someone out there just killed a freak, no idea who, but they're not from the bastards in the hierarchy. Either way we gotta get out of here. . . ." He paused looking at Laurence expectantly. Evidently he thought that Laurence would have all the ideas. Currently Konrad hated this, normally he would just start flying with his magnetism but this other freak here was not nearly as mobile. He started pacing. Clearly getting more and more mad.
