Genius: A Delve Into Madness

Genius: A Delve Into Madness

0 INK

You play as a mad scientist bent on changing the world.

861 readers have visited Genius: A Delve Into Madness since thedude14 created it.

Introduction

"There are two kinds of scientists in this world. First off, there’s the normal guys. These scientists study such things as physics, botany, psychology, and history. They use standard methods, they limit themselves to testing things in small contrabble ways. But most importantly, they are sane.

That’s what separates them from the other kind of scientist.

Madmen, frankenstiens… these are the scientists you see in horror movies and other such things of the twisted imagination (for the sake of brevity, we’ll call them Geniuses). They do not limit themselves with things like “safety” or “morality”, and in this way they are able to discover things that most would deem impossible.

You’d like that wouldn’t you? A chance to be freed from the constraints of the “normals”. Well, take it from me, you can have that and anything else your greedy, black heart desires.

Just be careful you don’t go too mad… "
-Dr Leopord Von Shrovan, a well-renowned Genius

Greetings!
Hello, and welcome to Genius. The idea behind this RP is simple: you are a mad scientist (known in world as a Genius) with one simple goal in mind… Create! With nothing but the help of your Creations and your own vast intellect, you will bring into this world something that has never before been touched upon by human thought.

Just don’t piss off any other Geniuses. Stay on the right side of the Council. And above all else, NEVER let anyone “Normal” see your creations, lest deadly consequences arise…

There are 6 types of Geniuses:

Mechanics
Mechanics are focus on the building of machines. Maybe it’s a giant robot with flamethrowers, maybe it’s a hyper-intelligent AI, but if it involves machines, a Mechanic is all over it.

Sculptors
Sculptors plan on warping or creating life. They usually focus on either mutation, genesis, or reanimation, but in theory anything is possible for a Sculptor to mold to his choosing.

Alchemists
Alchemists are mixers of elixirs, they put motion into potions. Simply put, by studying chemicals they hope to find a grand connection between all forms of matter… and get some gold along the way.

Mentalists
Mentalists hope to unlock the secrets of the brain. By searching through both the thoughts and minds of countless test subjects, they hope to find the secret of human condition.. and perhaps, an understanding of their own madness.

Archivers
Archivers unearth knowledge that was best left unseen. They travel around the world, attempting to unearth the secrets behind eldritch artifacts, scrolls covered in black speech, and beings whose mere presence would drive you mad.

Mathematicians
Mathematicians plan on understanding the universe through math. Hundreds of chalkboards and notebooks are filled with their equations and algorithms, all in a futile attempt to understand life, the universe, and everything else.

Creations
Creations are what you call your inventions, discoveries, and other such scientific marvels that you have created. A creation could be a robot, a zombie, a ray gun, or anything else in that supernatural nature. You begin game with three, and then must ask me before you can keep anymore.

Character Portrait: Dr. Atom
Tag Characters » Add to Arc »

0.00 INK

Dr Atom sat in the park, observing all the people walking by.

"Damn monkeys." He thought to himself, before pulling a dark green bottle out of his pocket. The Lazarus Serum. The secret to what most would call immortality. Hundreds of lives had been lost in it's creation, in it's discovery. But Atom didn't care.

"A thousand of those animals can die for all I care." he briefly thought, then swiftly took a small drink of the bottle and returned it to it's holster.

He looked around again. He didn't want to admit it, but he was bored. His most recent project having come up to a dead end, he was resigned to waiting and trying think of what to do next. Because that was what Dr Atom did best.

He knew how to think.

I kind of depends what effect the cybernetics have. Depending on their level of capability, they may have to count as creations.

Done and added in. However, instead of choosing a specific color, I just kept the *ColorYouLike* placeholder, so that someone can choose any color they like.
