Neo-Human

Neo-Human

0 INK

Technology has shaped the world. You have been created from that technology. What do you now choose to do with your life? Remain loyal to your creaters? Or find out the truth?

611 readers have visited Neo-Human since Vulpine Kitsune created it.

Introduction

In the year 2182 the world has vastly changed. After the Great Flooding of 2043, the land mass of the earth was reduced by 40%. Over-population crippled many nations and brought about war, plague, famine and much death. Many saw this as the apocalypse. But in truth it was merely a start of a new age of men.

After much loss of life the worlds population began to stabilise. Government around the world started to develop new methods of making more liveable land. Bunkers, metal islands and even floating cities started to be constructed world wide. By 2100 mankind had claimed back there lost land and more in these artificial ways. Such boost in technology had humans surrounded by steal, plastic and glass. Greenery and animals were a rarity in this world now. Wide spread depression swept the world as mankind realised the harm they had done to the planet they had called home.

This gave way to the digital age. The internet evolved to the limit that it was now more like another world. Every sense was entertained while a person was plug into the net. People would go to wilderness servers to experience what they had long since lost. But this advanced internet brought about a much more important change. Scientist from around the world were able to integrate with all the knowledge on the net and together thought of highly complex concepts. Many of them formed a secrets society known as “The Freedom Thinkers”. The Freedom Thinkers were the only scientist to start putting there concepts and ideas into practice in the real world.

You are one of there projects. A genetic experiment that can achieve much more than ordinary human beings. You know little of there plans or the outside world. You and the other “Specimens” have incredible powers that are closely monitored and controlled by The Freedom Thinkers. Your life isn’t completely horrible as you and the other specimens have a room each, a playing field, libraries and limited access to the Net. You have spent your whole life here and the carers have looked after you in your youth. However many of the other specimens have had enough of this enclosed life and plan an escape from this place, where every it may be.

As one of the specimens you will be taught how to use your powers as well as being taught knowledge of the outside world from the carers. You will have to come to your own decision on weather you wish to conform to the will of The Freedom Thinkers, or weather you plan to escape. However they have many ways to control disobedient specimens. So choose your path carefully.


Characters


As you have guessed by the intro you play as one of these specimens mention. Effectively you are a human with powers. But I stress that they have to be realistic powers. If your suppose to be super strong then your character has to be suitable sized and will still have there limits (at a push you can lift a bus). Same for things like some speed, you can be fast but not so fast that you can avoid bullets or anything like that. You are allow one power and one power only. However I may reward new powers of the same type as your character develops. Below is the different types you can choose.

Energy:- This covers powers that allow you to produce and control some forms of energy. Energy powers are as followed; Electrical, Heat, Light and Sound.

Mental:- This covers powers that make the specimen smarter in some shape or form. Mental powers are as followed; Acute Senses, Enhanced Memory, Foresight and Micro Vision

Physical:- This covers powers that make the specimen physical better than a human in some shape or form. Physical powers are as followed; Enhanced Speed, Enhanced Strength, Monstrous and Spliced.

Psychic:- This covers powers that allow the specimen to use there mind to effect there surroundings in some shape or form. Psychic powers are as followed; Empathy, Pyrokinesis, Telekinesis and Telepathic,

Technological:- This covers powers that only have an effect when connected to the net, a computer or otherwise relies on technology. Technological powers are as followed; EMP Aura, Hacking, Instant Net Search and Robot Control.

Character Bio Skeleton is as followed;-

Name: (First Name only, since you have no family)
Age: (Between 15-30)
Gender:
Power:
Appearance:
Personality:
Hobbies:
Room: (Describe what your room has in it and how it is decorated)

Knock, knock, knock. Felicity turns to the sound of knocking on her door. She already knew who it would be. Right now she didn’t want to deal with that, so Felicity simply ignored the sound and continued to practice with one of her favourite swords. It was like therapy to her. A large arch swing, a quick jab and then a jumping slash. Her motions were poetry and the pen was her sword.

Yesterday had been intense, Felicity had felt so many complex and deep emotions. Aiden’s rage, Null’s sadness and Dru’s fear. But right now none of those emotions were clouding her mind. Bit by bit Felicity was uncovering the willpower to go through with what she needed to. Every movement of the sword bought her closer to that.

Knock, knock, knock. “Felicity, it’s time dear” is was Felicity’s appointed caretaker taking Felicity to be tested. This was the same sort of test that made Maria go over the edge. Lately the scientists were testing all the specimens one by one. But not just for an hour like they had in the past, but for days instead. Felicity wasn’t sure she could stop herself from loosing her temper. They could of least gave her a week to get over Maria’s wiping. But no, they didn’t even see the specimens as human and Felicity knew that all too well.

Felicity opened the door and exited her room staring at the kind looking woman outside. But she wasn’t kind, it was just an act. “Come along Felicity, bet not to keep them waiting” Felicity continued to walk as she looked at the grassy fields that she knew she would see for at least a day. It didn’t matter though. On her mind was something much more important.

A white room, with a white dressed scientist and white chairs. Felicity had never been in this part of the main building before. “What had made The Freedom Thinkers treat all different all of a sudden?” Felicity thought to herself. The scientist jestured to Felicity to sit down. She did. The caretaker way goodbye to Felicity as if they were friends. But they were enemies in Felicity’s mind.

“Now Felicity you might be wondering what this is all about. Well you see it is important for us to really put our specimens to the limit, to see what they can really do. But don’t worry, other than a little stress this session will be harmless” Felicity looked to the scientists reading his emotions. Nothing, it was like he was dead inside. Felicity said nothing to the scientist who felt nothing.

Druid watched his lifelines leave Null's room. Druid sat on Null's bedside, staring at the report on the table. Were there things he wanted to know? Yes. Like, were there any other Druid's left? It was always in the back of his mind, but the whispers of nature always calmed those emotional scars.
"I.. I have to go." Druid looked longingly at the report but decided his friends scoured the report. He was late for his meeting with McCoy.


Druid entered his room and the hairs on his body stood on end, his hands curled into white-knuckled fists. They were in his room. Doctors who took samples, malicious, callous, evil scientists. They fucked with his sanctuary! Druid heard footsteps from the hallway. Probably more coming to abuse the plants. Heh, not if Druid could help his.

Druid kicked the door by its frame, splitting tinder and making the door swing outward on broken hindges. Yes.. I'll hurt them back..
Maria.. They took Maria away just like they took the other Druids away, that's when they started turning into trees, after they were wiped. Did they still live? Would they kill Maria too?

Druid's face was a mask of fury. He stepped out to look for his target, his enemy, the blight to his plants.

McCoy stood 5 feet away holding a clipboard in one hand, a pencil in the other with his glasses perched on the end of his nose. "Well, well, come on... what's the matter Druid?" McCoy had stopped in the hallway, he was looking at the specimen before him, anger fuming from his posture and how red he was, but his eyes were a little lost,confused.

"McCoy..? I.." Druid looked behind him at the barrier between his room and the hallway. The anger was gone. All of it, but he felt the same buz of energy coming from his room that had filled him. He turned to McCoy, his eyes were filling with tears, "they killed Maria.. and burned my plants.. They're.." /They're angry.. The plants?/ Druid looked at his room with fear for the first time.

"Druid? Are you listening to me? You have to come with me or go with them," McCoy's voice said from behind Druid.

Them? Druid looked past McCoy to the fully armed, specimen takedown squad. Druid knew it was them that did it, he would always remember how tall they are, how heavy and how they smelled. Even their malicious behaviour. "I'l go with you, McCoy.." Druid hung his head. His emotions were wire-taught. Maria was gone, so are his brothers and sisters, Fel hated him and Aiden was fighting for his humanity.


It was six hours later, the procedure to reinstall the hardware inside of him was complete. Druid was kept conscious during the prodecure, recommended by McCoy. Druid never screamed out, but that could have been because of the sedative. /Make me numb,/ Druid thought. Tomorrow he would collect the angry vines and help Felicity. He would spend the next day emptying his room completely, waste not a flower.
"McCoy! He's falling asleep!"
"Quickly, the adrenali-"

Druid was left dreaming about a forest coming to life with exotic trees swaying like they were alive, dancing on the wind. "What's 'wind'?" He whispered to no one, but he got an answer. Air rushed over his cheek, mimicing wind. That woke Druid with a jump, but when he looked around he was in McCoy's lab cell where patients who were disbehaving or sedated were kept. /My imagination's getting to me./ He tried not to think that he was losing his mind by pretending it never happened.

"Aiden...... Aiden its time to wake up Aiden."

A soft familiar voice echoed through Aidens head as a name came to mind, Maria.

Aiden's eyes shot open and looked around as he groggily began to get up. his ears were tight against his head and he was sore and was trying to remember what exactly had happened. it started last night after combat training, it was an intense night of sparing, after of course they had replaced his implants. the sparing had been against three other splicers, one that looked like it was mixed with a mountain lion another which had been mixed with a snake of sorts and the third was a lizard mixture. Aiden couldn't really remember the fights other than they were intense, and that there had been blood spilled.

Aiden continued to get up to his feet he didn't feel right he had definitely been drugged, he went to open his mouth and found that there was a device around it to prevent it from opening more than enough to drink water, as he breathed in he could taste blood, his human side was disgusted the animal was thriving on the new substance in his mouth. There were a series of minor injuries on his body, a few gashes and and dried blood stained his fur. "what the hell happened last night?" Aiden thought to himself. As he moved around the room he was being held in in front of him the door opened and in walked A man in his white lab coat a clip board with a file attached and two guards behind him. Aiden already knew that the man was Jack. but why was he here.

"Aiden, last night you proved a point of the splicer project entirely just like i knew you would. A job well done, its a shame that we had to lose those three but non the less you showed just how strong splicers can be and to top it all off you came back to us, we where afraid that we had lost you to the animal for sure that time, that is the real good news." jack paused and scruffed Aidens head in a playful matter. "Any ways congratulations because of you we have salvaged this program."

Aiden was confused at this point how had he saved the program, so did the other splicers die? and if they did that meant he had killed them. Aiden looked at his hands then to Jack who was sitting nonchalantly. Aiden just started as the drugs still toiled on his mind "We sedated you because it was the only way to calm you without doing a wipe or killing you the effects should wear off in a few more hours listen i am going to send you to your room now for some rest, enjoy some food. ill be in touch" with that the two gaurds picked aiden up and moved him he felt something try to slip into his mind and quickly get pushed out, they escorted the blood soaked splicer to his room took off his muzzle and left him in his room to his own devices as the door closed he began to howl.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Waiting on character approval.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Thank you Mazikeen. I like the chainsaw effect idea very much. Due to the restrictions of sound moving through earth, I don't think an earthquake is as likely as an avalanche or a landslide. I'll need to research to discover whether infrasound and ultrasound can go beyond acoustics's restrictions to the point of creating significant vibrations in adjoining tectonic plates. But it is another idea I can play around with, so thank you. Resonance would allow her to explode some materials, such as crystal, with relative ease. Thank you again for reminding me of non-biological applications.

Vulpine Kitsune, I do plan on my character having a useful talent, but not one which is strictly militant. Something academic seems appropriate for someone who has been stuck in the same class for so long.

If you want a heads up on how Mynah is going to make an entrance, highlight to see the spoiler. Blackmail. Eavesdropping is a terribly bad habit, but it makes for terribly good gossip.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

so im gonna be out of internet for about three days or so promise a post when i get back--wolf

Although I would like to say since your character's power isn't as useful as ours to begin with, feel free to have some sort of talent. Oh yeah, specimens with Energy-Sonic powers can't be deafened due to the fact they can control sound waves in a very instinctive way. Thought I would tell you since it can be very useful at times. Anyway, how did you plan on being introduced to the rest of the characters so far?

Energy-Sonic powers would be great for a character. Doesn't sound like it's mouth-restricted so she could, in a sense, use the sonic vibrations to blow up objects. If she holds a blade, sends sonic vibrations along its stem, it'll cut through people like a molten knife through warm butter. With enough raw power she could creake an earthquake.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Okay I posted up. I thought I would make it a day later. Until we are all able to post a good amount of days togeather, then I think it would be best to just build on our characters. Then we will meet up will Null and start the really action.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Well it seems we have all been a bit busy as of late. But still I hope that we can get back to the posting fairly soon. I'm going to give Maz another day to post something, after that I'll just post to move the story along and we will just assume that Dru doesn't chance after Felicity and Aiden.

As for MilkHoney. I hope you get around to making a character soon as new blood to the role-play would be nice.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

let me be the first to say hello and welcome, as for questions i dont have alot and i think we covered a great deal of them in the ooc at the beginning of this rpg. that being said i have internet access but its going to be limited and unusual usage hours for me im in California for 5 weeks and the only time ill have access will be late at night here around 9-11 pm but this shouldn't deter my posting in any way for the time being, that being said i hope to see a few new posts up tomorrow evening so i may continue to post and perhaps a new character to role play with as well,

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Hello! New girl here.

Hoping to throw a new character into the mix. Energy-Sound. Beginning abilities would be purely vocal, with a wide range (at least 8 octaves, as this would encompass what is musically useful), well-developed mimicry, and exact projection. End game, this would expand to blood vessel rupturing pitches, lullabies that really work, etc. A siren/banshee combo. Using current sound technology info, so I know this is realistic (though not normally within the capabilities of a human vocal range). Character would be older than class due to dealing with voice breaking/changing at puberty.

Any questions or something I need to know before rolling out a character?

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Really Maz? Come one. I'll give you a few ideas then. Feel free to mix and match;-

1) Follow Aiden trying your best to keep up then either a) find the two and saying something or b) loose sight of the swift Aiden and retreat to the safety of your room.
2) The scientist grab you as you leave the technology living quarters and start to question why you are there while they replace your now broken impales.
3) Realise that you should be at some sort of training session for pychics and decided that Felicity probably just went there.
4) Say with Null and ask her to fine the files on Dru, Aiden and Felicity.
5) Become a doulbe agent and tell the scientist all our plans (thats the most extreme one, but just athought).

I hope that helps you post soon.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

I can't think of anything to type to advance the rp and not lead it astray..

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Hope Maz posts soon.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Wolf, your posts are very good and I do enjoy reading them. However you tend to miss speach marks out, or put them in the wrong place. If you could work on that a bit it would be a lot easier to read. Thanks.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

i like it not sure how much free time ill have the next few days so maz and kit you can control Aiden as you need. ill just roll with it as it comes and gose

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

It was good enough Maz. Anyway, sorry you two that I'm posted a bit later than I said. But either way its up now. Btw, how do you feel about the direction of the roleplay so far?

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Vulpine Kitsune wrote:I'm going to post in about 6-8 hours time. Hopefully before then you will have time to post Maz. Oh and Wolf can post after you if he feel like it of course. Anyway, hope you find the time to post Maz.

I'm sorry for the low-quality post, it was the best I could do at the time and I'm satisfied that it gets the message across, just not the quality.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

I'm going to post in about 6-8 hours time. Hopefully before then you will have time to post Maz. Oh and Wolf can post after you if he feel like it of course. Anyway, hope you find the time to post Maz.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Boss stopped @ a smoke shop, so I got a min to see what's up in the OOC.

I have some kick ass role-plays I want to bring from Gaia to RP gateway, but my comp monitor is toast and I haven't needed it for anything I can do without, so.. Ya. But, man, I miss Halo. 35+/1 Kill/Death ratio.

I'm in one other RP I might abandon or try to eor something out. 40-60 OOC posts a day, 10+ IC a day, too fast for my phone and too busy.

Gtg, bbl.

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

nothing wrong with that

Re: [OOC] Neo-Human

Hmm I see. Well, I'm glad you decided on this one then. Anyway, if I ever make something else I'll tell you. You might like that one too. But, for now I think I'll focus on this one.
