The Shifters

The Shifters


You know that when even the government won't stand up to your kind, that your pretty powerful.

1,150 readers have visited The Shifters since Starlight77 created it.


You know when even the government won't stand up to your kind that your a pretty powerful race.


The year is 2035. You are what the government calls 'A Shifter.' They try to befriend us. But they really fear us. They have not tried to start war. They have given us a large spot of land near North Western America, telling us that we will not be bothered. Though they set up twenty foot fences with barbed wire on the top around our property line. You are taught this at a very young age. This is your home.

Facts about the species:

Every shifter has a shifters' mark, shown in the picture above, and it is located on your right shoulder. You are born with it, and no matter what creature you shift to, its always there. Even if you shift to a black animal, it shows up white. ( ... ,s:0,i:151 )

A shifter is a mutant with the ability to change into any animal they wish... if they train enough. They are seperated by levels 1-4:

Level 1: You can shift into small mammals, such as rodents, small birds, and insects.

Level 2: You can shift into domesticated animals and any animals on lower levels.

Level 3: You can shift into any wild animal you have the knowledge of and lower level animals, but no extinct species.

Level 4: You can shift into any creature that you know about and lower levels as well. May it be T-rex or a sabertooth tiger, you have the ability to do this.

When you shift into a creature for some time, you experience something called 'Creature Hangover.' So say if you shift into a fox, then for about an hour afterwards, you will be sneaky and sly, or a cat, you will be sassy, some even tripsy. You get the idea.

Another thing is you can never kiss a mortal. When and if you do, your DNA will be transplanted into them, and the shifter's mark will be burned onto their body and permanantly marked on their flesh. They would become a level one shifter, called 'secondary shifters.' But when they shift, it isnt quick and painless, it is slow, painful, and lasts about half a minute. No matter how much they practice, they can only reach level two. You can kiss any shifter you'd like, and nothing would happen.

You may be a level 4 shifter, or a sciendtist studying the shifters' DNA and way of life. There may be romance, action, and science.

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.
