Earth 2450 - New York City

"The Big Apple or The City That Never Sleeps, by any name, this is New York City."

The date is Friday, July 4th, 2450 and we are on a very futuristic Earth. Flying cars, laser guns, robot servants, and just about anything else you can imagine is reality. All problems that we once thought would bring humanity to its knees and Earth to the brink of destruction, are no more. Diseases have been cured; Global Warming, The Energy Crisis, all solved. Broke your leg? Need a new heart? Brain Transplant? Its just the matter of simple, non-life threatening surgery now. Health is all a matter of wealth and with that, anything is capable. Addictions, birth defects, everything is fixable; perfection is literally obtainable.

AMP technology has replaced most of what ran on fossil fuels along with other better sources of fuel. Thanks to the same technological advances, deep space travel is even available. There is currently a fleet of space marines deployed on a mission, even. For the most part, the world is experiencing total peace. Africa has reached a peaceful state as well, though it is being ruled by dictator, things are a lot better than it has been in a while.

Advances in computing have done away with traditional input devices like keyboards. Instead, modern input peripherals are usually holographically displayed in front of the user at a height and angle for ergonomic ease. Machines that use this interface detect a user through a microframe chip in their hand or glove.

Paper and coin currency has been discontinued. Since hard currency can be stolen or counterfeited, electronic fund transfers are the norm. More importantly, physical transactions cannot be easily tracked, making them ideal for tax evasion or the purchase of illegal goods.

Some consider the world we live in to be well on its way to becoming an utopia. But, they are naive. The world is still very far from it, but it is within reach. There is still poverty, high crime rates, everything that makes this world so great... However, it is all just a minor problem that is currently trying to be solved. No longer are humans the only intelligent life to walk the Earth. There are two classes of humans, synthetics and cybernetics, both are divided by what they are literally made of. The world has went through a great change and doesn't plan on stopping.

I previously stated that mutants were forced into Concentration Camps, which were like prisons were mutants were to await their death, worked for sentinels as slaves, and were experimented on. But, I have now made a change to this and decided they will instead live in Ghettos. These were set up by the sentinels in order to confine mutants and sometimes humans into tightly packed areas of cities. They are similar to prisons as there were numerous restrictions and rules, and had walls built around the housing to keep them in.

Mutants were not allowed to leave unless they were given a pass, which was bulky tracking bracelet. They then had to 10 PM to return or else face punishment, which usually resulted in some sort of isolated imprisonment or worse depending on the circumstances. The situation in these ghettos were brutal, with unconformable living conditions, and terrible diets. In addition to this, mutants were often abducted and the victims of cruel experiments or harsher treatment by human guards.

Roleplay Intro Briefing


The roleplay begins as Mutant Anarchy hacks the entire Zone 3*, broadcasting a message warning of a revolution. The message is actually a delivery system for a virus that prevents activity for the duration of the video. This virus was used to mask MA's activities as they began phase two.

After the message ends, everyone assumes things will go back to normal. Instead, screens go white as the symbol for anarchy fades in, followed by a low humming. Simultaneously, all over zone 3, the global network* and other computer systems begin failing. People are unable to interact with anything: traffic systems and other transportation systems go hay-wire, Guardian Vision is disconnected, the stock market simulates a faux crashing, and other minor and easily fixed problems. The point of the attack is to demonstrate just how serious MA is and what they are capable of.

While the city scrambles to fix these problems, MA moves on to the final stage of their plan. By way of portal, they plan to evacuate the Ghetto and Testing Facility on Rykers Island. MA is well aware of what goes there and the sub-standard, living condition and unfair restrictions mutants are forced to endure. They plan to liberate every mutant there and then destroy it. From there, the mutants will be lead to their new, temporary homes and those willing to fight, will be inducted into MA.

MA will enter the facility in the middle of the day while the chaos still has the city in a panic. With the help of Toran, a mutant with the ability to form gateways that link two locations that can span great distances. The portal will take everyone to a rally point where they will then be filtered into two groups: refugee and rebels. The refugees will be taken to a far away morlock community that has recently become part of the rebellion by housing refugees. The rebels will then be lead back to the HQ in the Undercity. Both groups will have to pass through a series of check points to ensure they are not being followed.

Whilst everyone is escaping, members of MA are planting a bomb powerful enough to level the entire island. Insurgents have been planted in strategic locations for the past few months as well as minor explosives that will put a dent in security. They will try to carry out the mission as quietly as possible, but are prepared for the alternative.

    Zones: The Sentinels have divided USA into five zones, each containing ten of the fifty states near a primary base of operations. For Zone 3, this is New York and its capital New York City. New York is also the central base where orders are handed down to the other locations. The mission will be considered a success if the island is destoryed and a majority of the mutants rescued.

    The story will follow the rebels and MA as they destroy the facility and flee to safety. It will conclude the moment they make it back to Rebel HQ.

    Global Network: Name for the world wide web that connects to anything and everything hardwired or wirelessly connect to the grid that can be accessed by gloves and similar products.


In this part I would have liked for there to be five characters: three of them would be members of the Mutant Anarchy and the other two mutants in the Ghetto. Of the three MA members, one of them would have been among the moles planted inside the Ghetto to make the operation go smoother by striking from the inside first.





While the events of above transpire, this will be happening congruently. Those involved will be characters who have not become members of MA, but are currently being recruited and any other civilian characters that are not on Rykers Isalnd. The scene will start in some public place (Central Park or Times Square) where a mutant hate rally is taking place. The rally is actually a celebration held by a politician running for office who has annually held a celebration in the name of mutant enslavement. MA has planned to crash this event as a trust exercise for new recruits. However, what they do not know is that there is an OZT is providing security along with a sentinel squad.

The scene will be about the group handling the threat and fleeing for their life as they are not only mutant anarchist, but the authorities assume they are there to assassinate the politician.

Here the roles would be reversed. I would like for the majority to belong to non MA members and at least one MA member who would act as supervisor for the training exercise/mission.
