Gunship: True Beginnings

Gunship: True Beginnings

0 INK

(CLOSED) The adventurer's of a ship surrounded in mystery arrive at the beginning of a long and difficult journey.

762 readers have visited Gunship: True Beginnings since Ark Reahver created it.

Introduction

(Those who participated in the first Gunship can simply resubmit their character profiles. If you need to change anything you can go ahead and do it, but tell me about it first.)

Here is the link to the original http://www.roleplaygateway.com/roleplay/gunship-freedom/

About three thousand years ago a cataclysmic event caused the destruction of the world. The earth became coated in a thick miasma, a poisonous and corrosive air that brought death to anything that was exposed to it. Out of nowhere the poison had begun to seep from deep inside the planet, causing destruction with earthquakes as the air pushed it's way into the surface. Frightened of their impending doom the people of the earth looked to their greatest minds for salvation.

A year later a professor named Alexander Belmont, brought forward blue prints for massive ships that would carry the people to safety. The ships would float to the sky above the reach of the deadly poison. There they would wait out the suffering, wait for the earth to become pure again so that they could return to their beloved homeland. At first people were skeptical, and rejected his idea. After many trial and error experiments he finally succeeded in creating a functioning model. He took the model to his country leaders who provided funding for the project and allowed for him to build a fully functional life size ship. People were amazed by his scientific genius and adopted his idea as their best chance of survival.

The ships were built and took in as many people as they could before lifting up into the sky. Many people were left behind, many of which were Elves because they were not seen as equals to the Humans. As the ships rose one by one they watched as the miasma created thick clouds, covering the atmosphere and blocking their view of their previous home. The clouds grew on top of each other, creating a thick shield that prevented the miasma from reaching the ships.

After a while the ships prepared to sail back down, but were greeted by a strange sign. Floating rock islands that carried parts of cities and towns, or parts of forest or mountains.The captains and political leader's from all the ships held a meeting to discuss the meaning. Scientists figured the miasma had broken up the earth and disrupted its magnetic poles, and a certain ore within the rock caused the islands to lift up into the sky due to impossibly strong magnetic forces. They believed that there would be no return to their previous home. They then discussed what their future plans would be.

After the meeting people began to gather what they could from these rising islands, that would sometimes disappear below the cloud cover. They added to the ships combining them together, creating cities carriers of civilization which hovered above the surface of the adequately named Cloudsea. The cities took on specific roles, whether they were farming colonies that grew food for the cities, housing and urban cities meant to house as many people as possible, or military colonies to train the protective forces of the sky cities. They became a new people, created allegiances, new governments, a new world. Novus-Terra.

For many year's the cities grew, created new inventions like robots meant to serve many purposes, as well as building many smaller sky-ships resembling the size and shape of their previous boats. The world went on a steady climb of prosperity for a while, but the longer things dragged on the worse things became.

Thieves known as sky pirates began to show up, they harassed the military by attacking their ship from below the cloud cover. As well as the occasional commandeering of ships simply to take their supplies. The pirates became a bigger presence in the world and helped inspire a sense of exploration amongst many of the people. After a much longer time, the supplies that the sky-cities provided were no longer able to keep up with the demands of ever-growing populations.

Now cities are covered in grime, populations so high that resources are a major issue, and crime is becoming rampant and common.
The cities are experiencing many problems, and have no solution for how to solve them. The prosperity age of the sky-cities is faded.
What will become of the world?

A ship know as the Daedalus has appeared looking for adventurer's who are willing to go on a great expedition into the Cloudsea and look for ways to solve the problems of today.

The Daedalus has finished its first journey into the fabled Gulf of Storms. A part of the Cloudsea from where no man has ever returned alive. They were tasked with testing out experimental technology created to harvest lightning as a power source. Inside they encountered a mysterious band of pirates with technology many years ahead of their time. After a long battle the crew of the Daedalus came out victorious, although they did not escape unscathed. They are now headed to the nearest Sky-city. Tirwelld, also know as "The city of Liars" is home to one of the largest prisons on the Southern Wind(The winds are the current names for the countries.).

What kinds of adventures does The city of Liars hold in store for our adventurers?


Synopsis

The world Of Novus-Terra, is a world in the sky. The people of the world escaped a deadly and corrosive air that began to cover the world by fleeing to the sky. After learning that they might never get to return home the ship inhabitants reformed their thoughts. They recovered scraps and debris, that floated up to the sky due to a strange magnetic force that was caused by the miasma. The additions to the ships became so large that multiple ships came together and became cities.

The world exist purely in the sky, no land except for the floating islands where most of the resources that created the sky-cities came from. Now the world faces a time period filled with struggle. Governments have become monarchies, and have strong segregation of the classes. The resources that they relied on are becoming scarce and conflict is beginning between sky-cities.

Pirates are attacking merchant ships and supply frigates, taking whatever they can to ensure their own survival. The population of the cities has become very high, and living conditions have become very poor. A few cities have fallen below the clouds, and an influx of wanderer's, people with no permanent residence in one city, has created crime within the cities.
The last thing, is that one of the two original races that came to the skies is dying out. Elves, who faces extreme prejudice and are often traded as slaves, are becoming few and far between.

The Daedalus's purpose is still shrouded in mystery. They are being tasked missions from an unknown source in the military. You are part of this rag tag crew of adventurers and you might one day uncover the truth below the miasma.


The Sky Cities

Many sky cities have become corrupt favoring the strong and leaving little to the weak. The cities have been separated into three districts.

The Noble district is populated by High ranking military officer's political leaders, Highly regarded scholars and the wealthiest of businessmen. It is by far the smallest district and usually exists at the very top of the sky cities. They have the purest and cleanest water, the cleanest air and the most living space, but few people ever get to see this district.

The Central district is the largest of the three and is composed of many parts, the most important being the docks where ships come and go, large trading centers and housing quarters, hospitals, schools, military barracks, and recreational facilities. Mostly though this areas focus is that of commerce.

The Lower district is the second largest but nowhere near as big as the central district. Because of the shape of sky cities the lower district receives less light than the others, creating a dark and gloomy appearance. This section is mostly populated by the poor, and the people who run maintenance of the city. The living conditions are severely affected by all the machineries in which weapons and ships are built, the high crime rates, and risk of pirate attacks. being the lowest level all the water they get has already been recycled from the above districts and is rarely clean.


The Winds

The Winds are the names of the continents and countries of the Cloudsea. They refer to the large group of Sky-Cities that travel together on the same wind current. The four Main continents are;

The Northern Wind- The largest and most militarized continent. A few decades ago the Norther Winds tried to take over the other winds. They launched a war campaign that lasted over twenty years. Their incredibly advanced technology forced the other winds to fight together to ward off the attackers. They are now isolated from the other continents and live a secret life of seclusion, hidden behind their constantly patrolled borders.

The Southern Wind- Is the most agriculturally developed wind. They also hold the smallest population and army, but are a major trading superpower.

The Eastern Wind- Holds the largest population of citizens. They are the most culturally diverse nation and are the second strongest military power besides the north. They also have the most well kept sky cities, and a large water supply.

The Western Wind- They are the most ravaged by pirate attacks. The people of the western wind have a strong sense of unity. This continent is home to many floating islands, which is why the Western wind has the most scholars.

The Elves
As stated before the elves are a scarce and dying race. Their history is lined with prejudice and discrimination. Treated as inferior to humans they have been the victims of many crimes and cruel punishment. Many of them are slaves, fated to work in servitude for the rest of their life. Elves that want to avoid being enslaved must apply and pay for Freedom Checks, which are documents that state that they are free citizens and are allowed the rights of any human, although discrimination usually prevents them from being able to have the same accommodations as a human. Many Elves use their fabled intellect to work in the fields of science and machinery. Some even becoming wealthy inventors and highly regarded scholars, although the chances of that are very, very slim.
Human relationships with elves are looked down upon so cross species partnerships are rare. Halfbloods can find it even harder to live than elves, because of their human blood they cannot be enslaved but it is hard for them to find any social acceptance.

unfortunately it didn't seem like the mechanic was going to be joining him anytime soon so he decieded it was up to him to stop the bomb before it blew every thing in a 60 mile radius up in flames. Taking another look at the bomb he realized that there was a port on its side, and he smiled. You see as long as he can use his little device then he can do nearly anything to a computer or whatever device he chooses. He plugged it in and began working, he was instantly surprised at the level of security but wasn't undaunted. He just kept on attacking it, and before you could say "how about just one of them colored wires?" he was done. Now with access to the bomb he began shutting it down, it was a tricky procedure seeing that one false step and he could say good bye to his life. But a few minutes later and the bomb was so safe you could light it on fire and not die in a mushroom cloud. He was proud of him self, but he was still wondering as to why the mechanic hadn't shown up yet. Bored he left to find the next one.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

please someone post for the love of god! post something anything just post! don't let it fail!

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

A whole week and no one's posted!

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Hey guys whats the hold up?

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

I'm back, guys! For real this time. Sorry for the wait, I was out of town and didn't have access to internet connection on my computer. Thanks for not getting too far ahead without me. I'll read up on what I've missed and post ASAP.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Hey guys I'm back...but things still seem to be going slowly.
So Ark if its not to much trouble i'll be moving my character up to the bomb site and i'll wait for you their (i'll say he's got no experience with bombs whatsoever so he needs you to diffuse it).

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Sorry Uta. I didn't check this site for a while.
Sure. I think it would be great for Victoria to meet up with Lyle. I didn't know she was underground haha.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Oh sorry rain i've just been a little busy but it's good now so i'll be posting right quick.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

You can come find me in the lower levels. I'm tired of waiting on Church.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Everyone does know there isn't much I can post about if Victoria can't find anybody in the lower levels

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Urk. I have fallen into lurking here. >n> Sorry. I was sans internet for about a week, then I got distracted. I'll try and get out a post and get back into the rp. |D

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Maybe Victoria could find Lyle in the underground or anyone?

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Stin a place with very little Internet access. Posting will be tough. I'll catch up when I can. Sorry guys.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Hey ark I just wan't to tell you that i'm not going to be able to get propa internet for a week or so. so if you need to just make my character a npc go ahead.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

like i said before, if some one doesn;t show up for a while and leaves you kind of stuck, it's ok to skip their post and just do something else. I'm sure river won't mind if you just move her character.

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

I'm still here! But I am completely hung up waiting on River. She has disappeared again. XD I have no idea what to do now, as Lyle is awaiting Rikki's reply. :/ And just having him wander off without her is a little weird, considering that she's unable to walk and Lyle's supposed to help her. Even so, I have no idea what they're supposed to be doing in the lower levels. XD;

I could just pretend that Lyle has started to help Rikki walk, but she went unconscious (again), but I don't want to do it without River's permission. :/

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Sounds like a plan Vio, I'll see to it that Shi knocks some sense back into that red head of his ;D

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Ok @ Angel

Since the last time you posted, Edwin talked to the General.

-There is one final part to the attack, an ex-prisoner and terrorist named Harris is behind the whole thing, he demanded that all the prisoner's go free or else he would blow up the city. Edwin and Allen decided to go help the people escape, when the general decided not to tallow the prisoner's to escape. Ed is waiting for angel to reply, so they can go to the docks and search for the bombs that threaten to kill the civilians if the prisoners don;t go free.

-Sierus has woken up from a delusional nightmare about his son, and is resting on shi's lap. Things in the Central district have calmed down now, and all the people seem to be united through their losses.

-The rest of the crew in the low disctrict, have not relied or responded in a while. So i;m not really sure what they're doing.

@Vio

lol

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Seriously, guys. I'm almost afraid to look at the thread and see how much I've missed. It sucks being gone for a few days; you never know how far everyone's gotten and you have to find some way to jump back in. SO HELP!!

Re: [OOC] Gunship: True Beginnings

Of course! Of course! He sure does. And he would be delighted if she would partake with social interest in him... of course, right now he is delusionally looking for his son. Hit him, or something.
