The Bombs in the Sky

The Bombs in the Sky


It's just a normal day. You're just an everyday, white-collar Joe working in some office in Washington D.C. And then bombs begin to rain down on the USA.

355 readers have visited The Bombs in the Sky since Abraxas_Axis created it.



Nobody knows how those bombs landed on the United States of America on that fateful autumn day. Nobody knows who sent them. Nobody knows why. And yet it happened. The USA, reduced to a harsh, bitter wastelands.
But not yet. It would happen, but not yet. It is only just happening. You are the survivors of the Bombs in the Sky, and this is your story.

* * *

Welcome to the Bombs in the Sky RP! In this roleplay, you play as a normal, everyday Joe living in Washington D.C. in the United States of America. Perhaps you're a white-collar office worker in some big tech company. Maybe you are a government agent, serving your country and all it represents. Or a street urchin, or barista, or even the President. Then, out of the blue, strange missiles rain out of the sky, smiting the United States and causing great chaos. You must survive this attack in any way possible. And after you do, you must clamber out of your bunkers to see what happened to the world you once knew.
Before making a character and posting, read the rules so you know what to and what to not do. Have fun!

Toggle Rules

1. No racism, sexism, homophobia or other prejudice.
2. No NSFW content. Kissing and hugging are allowed, and so is sex - BUT ONLY IF IT IS OFFSCREEN.
3. There will probably be a lot of death and gore in this RP. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.
4. Don't create a character if you are never going to use them. Make sure you will be able to make time to RP in this before joining.
5. This is a Paragraph RP. That means that in each post you must use a 3 SENTENCE MINIMUM. Don't just say "He shoots the guy and runs away". Actually take the time to explain your character's thoughts and what they are doing.
6. Do not randomly state that a theory on how the bombs came about to be absolute truth. I am the final deciding member on how it goes. Your characters can theorize but never impose their theories. You can also suggest ideas for how it happened by PMing me, and I may take them into account. Until then, keep guessing.
7. Please, please, please do not break the fourth wall. It's annoying and grinds the action to a halt.
8. Have fun!

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.


Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Re: The Bombs in the Sky

I would like to add a character here. A girl if I can. If you want though, I don't mind playing a boy since there's already a girl here.
