Our Time is Running Out

A year after a worldwide blackout, relationships, friendships, and even rivalries are put to test amidst a battle between three groups for control of NYC.

Introduction

[ Put on your war paint ]


ImageYou know time crawls on when you're waiting for the song to start
So dance alone to the beat of your heart


The end of the world is so last year. Now we have WW3 to worry about, with three groups fighting to control New York City.

Everything has finally settled down since the worldwide blackout that left everyone reeling. How are we supposed to live without microwaves and refrigerators? Our iPhones and computers? A year has passed and people are finally started to figure it out; the power isn't coming back on. Now everyone is waiting for the other shoe to drop. Who is going to step up and take over? Who will lead us in this time of darkness? The first group to appear are the Youngbloods. They set up a government that not everyone is pleased about, but most follow because it's relatively orderly and made up of old-world officials, so they feel compelled to follow them.

Though some people really don't like the Youngbloods, and form a rebel group called the Maniacs'. This group is widely opposed by most people other than those that make it up. They are extremists, attacking anyone no matter their allegiance and have a act first, ask later attitude that often leads to bloodshed and innocents killed.

Now, there are rumors going around about a new group starting up, calling themselves Phoenix. Their main goal is to create peace and equality without needless killing. That is not to say they won't fight if you provoke them, but they aren't like the Maniacs' who attack recklessly, or like the Youngbloods' who prefer to stay behind their high walls and gates, hiding with their money and leaving their followers to suffer at the hands of the extremists. So now the question is,


What are you?

He and FC: William Beckett are in a relationship and have been since before the blackout, but with how busy he has been being leader he might be unintentionally neglecting his partner...

Image
Youngblood Spy | William Beckett | Open
A Phoenix at heart, he was caught by a group of high-ranking Youngbloods' not long ago and is being forced to feed them information in exchange for keeping his group, especially FC: Brendon Urie, safe (though he attempts to give them the unimportant stuff). He hasn't told anyone in fear of being shunned or worse. Good friends with FC: Dylan O'Brien and dating FC: Brendon, he has felt ignored lately with how busy his partner is.

• This is MATURE, so you have to be able to handle foul language, sexual themes, violence, and all that other fun stuff.

• I need you to be literate, and when I say that I don't mean I want you to write a book. 300 word minimum on posts, can go below in situations that are sort of dragged out and you're running out of things to say. I like formatted posts, but it isn't required. Please no dialogue color, unless it's something bearable, like darker colors. (I can't see bright colors on my monitor). No super tiny text either.

• This is not going to be first come, first serve. People may compete for roles after the majority of roles have been reserved already. FCs can be changed if asked nicely, but some I just don't like and do not want to see in my roleplay. :)

• Please do not join and leave, that is very frustrating. If you make a character, stick with it! We love you! Don't leave us!

• Reservations last 3 days, but I want you to have a WIP in within the first 24 hours.

• Romance is encouraged, obviously, there are some preset couples and crushes but it doesn't always have to be that way!

• Password is which group you would chose in this post-apocalyptic world.



You may use your own if you make sure to include everything here, ^^.

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Remake of RP is right HERE!

All your characters have already been reserved, let me know if you don't want to have that character anymore. Please resubmit your characters and I'll make sure they have everything then check you off. Characters will be reserved for people from this RP before I let other's take your previously reserved characters. Let me know if you want to help or want to take on another character!
Zoey

Re: Our Time is Running Out

I'm totally in for whatever! :)

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Well, if that actually happened, I would hope that you'd PM me first to ask if you could use my idea ;).

But I already gave Zoey permission to redo it herself. I have this horrible habit of having great ideas and not being able to handle the responsibilities of being a GM. Though I told Zoey that if she does keep my role, I'd love to still be involved. I just can't GM.

Re: Our Time is Running Out

At the risk of sounding cocky or something along those lines, if you guys are seriously dedicated to this roleplay, and this one fails to start up, I have every intention to reboot this in a few weeks if needed and when my schedule clears up a bit. Definitely keep working on those characters so that, hopefully, we won't have to make a new roleplay to execute this amazing idea!

Re: Our Time is Running Out

If nobody has taken the Phoenix prisoner I can take him! Could I possibly change the FC to Max Schneider or Avan Jogia...

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Hey What did you want me to change on my character sheet ?

Re: Our Time is Running Out

@Gentlemiss:
I can also take on another character, if needed. :)

Also, I am assuming you too away the Maniacs assassin character?

Re: Our Time is Running Out

I could take on FC: William Beckett but it'll take me a while to get a full character sheet in for him because I have a Model UN conference this weekend.

Re: Our Time is Running Out

I'll throw something up in the rolelplayers wanted form and try to get it going.

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Pweeeease? WE CAN GET IT GOING!

Re: Our Time is Running Out

I was looking forward to this roleplay as well. :(

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Damn, so was I. Gentlemiss, do you need me to take on some more roles? Perhaps you could advertise it over in the forums? I was certainly looking forward to this roleplay.

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Aweee I was looking forward to this. :(

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Hi, sorry guys, I'm here. I'd love to say yes Zoey, but it looks like it didn't garner enough interest, unfortunately. /: For those of you who made characters, thank you and I'm sorry.

Re: Our Time is Running Out

I'm gonna be sending in most of my character tonight. I instant messaged you, but, I don't think my IM's are working. Anyway, sorry for the lateness!

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Is this role play still happening?

Re: Our Time is Running Out

Can I reserve Maniac Prisoner aka Charlotte Free and though she started as a Maniac I think she(and I) would be more of a Pheonix
