Humans

We’re a fabulous creation with incredible mechanics holding us together.

Our bodies and minds are by far the most complex on this Earth.

Opposable thumbs, the ability to think, we have it all.

But what if I told you that wasn’t true?



What if I told you

that you’ve been living

an absolute lie?


They’re called Embers

Their title came from their bright, colorful eyes.

They have reflexes faster than ever seen before.

Their senses are more sensitive, more powerful, more receptive.

And what if I told you that they came from you?


What if I told you

they are human

just like you?


Seventy years ago on December 21, 2012, the human race thought the world was going to end. But it didn’t – it began. People began to show signs of super-human capabilities: picking up extreme amounts of weight, running at startling speeds, sensing things from a far distance. At first the world was in shock – these people had to be a new evolution of humans, they thought.

But they were wrong.

These people were just as human as anyone else. So why, you ask, are they so extreme? Scientists had begun to discover during the beginning of the twenty-first century that the human race was holding back incredible strengths. The human body essentially only uses a small portion of its actual strength and only uses its full strength when in a life-or-death situation. However, calling upon this strength can leave the body in shambles, making the person’s muscles and other parts permanently or temporarily damaged. The Embers are people who have their full strength whenever they need to without hurting their physical forms.

Sixty years ago, a center was created in NYC for the Embers. In this facility they were trained to use their skills to their full potential while also being pampered in extreme wealth and luxury. Each Ember has enhanced bodily senses and strengths, but they all have one in particular that is their strongest; this can be strength, speed, hearing, eye-sight, empathy.

Fifty years ago, technology became a thing of wonders. Buildings began to float seven feet above the ground, cars could fly, skate-boards can hover. People began to grow more beautiful – and sadly at the same time, more stupid. Their lives revolved around parties, alcohol, and anything that brought about pleasure. Birth rates increased and mortality rates decreased, creating overpopulated cities and underpopulated grave-yards.

Forty years ago, World War III began. With advanced technology, the world immediately found themselves equally as strong – and that was when the US government (now secretly a dictatorship under Michael D. Scott II) decided to use the Embers in their battles. Every month, five Embers were chosen to go to war, though the Embers themselves never knew where they’d be going. It was explained to them that being chosen was a privilege, an honor, and they believed it.

Thirty years ago, the number of Embers has decreased. As the world discovered sixty years ago, to produce a full Ember, you must have two Embers – the offspring of an Ember and a human was called a Spark, a person who could use their full strengths but dies at around twenty-five as a side-effect. And so began the creation of X-Embers, people born in a lab after the extraction of egg and sperm from Embers sent to war. X-Embers are by far the strongest of all Embers and have two particularly strong abilities, but they suffer from insomnia, migraines, nightmares, and have shown a pattern of going crazy by age twenty-one. Ability wise, they excel in one of the normal abilities while also having preception, an ability which allows the X-Ember’s mind to work at incredible speeds, making them so intelligent that they can even predict someone’s move before it happens.


It is now the year 2082 and WWIII still continues to scar the earth. The Spark, a resistance of human and spark alike, has risen up to be a threat to the US government; their aim is to stop the war and overthrow the secret dictator Luther D. Scott. The resistance has successfully infiltrated the Ember Facility in order to find Embers they believe could potentially help them stop the war.

But remember…

Nothing is ever as it seems.

You can’t trust anyone in this world;

Not even the ones you love.

EMBERS look like people used to in 2012 – basically normal humans, aside from the exotic eye color.

X-EMBERS are beautiful like the humans in the current year, aside from heterochromatic, exotic eye color.

SPARKS are a mixture of beautiful and normal and have normal colored eyes.

HUMANS are all gorgeous and are generally fairly stupid, though the ones we will be roleplaying as have a fairly normal IQ.

Re: the War of Ember

That'd be great if she's ever on. :P

Re: the War of Ember

Maybe we could get her permission to take it over? Like have someone else be GM?

Re: the War of Ember

I was too. Looks like es has bailed though.

Re: the War of Ember

Is everyone still here? I just wanna make sure this hasn't died. I was really looking forward to this RP.

Re: the War of Ember

Can I un-reserve the female Spark? I think I'll just stick with Teddy for now. :3

Re: the War of Ember

So around when do you think we'll begin? Oh and I was wondering if you wanted a certain setting to start, or if it's free to each character.

Re: the War of Ember

Got my Character in

Re: the War of Ember

We should be starting soon, don't worry ^.^

and sure, you can have the X-Ember. Just get the character in by 48 hours.

ASHTONWOLF AND VIDIDICI.
Do not forget you still have characters reserved.

Re: the War of Ember

Hey Es I'm up for this. Can I take that X-Spark Guy?

Re: the War of Ember

So are we waiting for all positions to be filled to start? Lol I know starting a roleplay is always the most difficult because people don't like to start it off.

Re: the War of Ember

Alright, I just submitted my character, I hope it's good. If there's anything you want me to change, feel free to tell me.

Re: the War of Ember

Forget that question. I just figured it out :)

Re: the War of Ember

Lol thanks :D I could totally imagine someone like Morgan Freeman saying that. "What if I told you..." YEAH. That's epic.

:3

Re: the War of Ember

You know, the intro of the roleplay reminded me of The Matrix. "What if I told you..." It's a great start, really. Anyway, I'm taking the red pill on this one. I want to see how deep the rabbit hole goes... I'll submit a character soon.
PS: Ah, Byte, so we meet again. I never got the chance to see you actually roleplaying, and I'm sure it will be awesome.

Re: the War of Ember

Could I reserve a spot for a female human, please?

Re: the War of Ember

I submited my Female Spark member ^^
Tell me if there is anything I need to change. (I'mm currently working on the history. It should be finished shortly)

Re: the War of Ember

All positions reserved.

Remember
1) characters must be submitted within 48 hours
2) if I see any problem with your character, I am allowed to ask for change or deny acceptance altogether

Re: the War of Ember

Can I reserve a female Spark and a male Ember?

Re: the War of Ember

Could I reserve a female Ember? Please and thank you. :)
