A War Between Mankind And Its Planet

Post by Masquerade on Wed May 22, 2013 12:26 am

Earth, United States of America, Year 2XXX...

Science. It is what humanity has claimed and discovered--a word to explain how the world works. There is so much natural science out there, things that were meant to be and exist in this world. However, the curiosity of mankind knows no bounds, and through science, things were created and brought into existence that might never should have seen the light of day. Though our progression has helped make our lives more convenient and extended our life expectancies greatly, it has come at a terrible cost. The very place we call our home is becoming more and more polluted with the excrement of industry, the very epitome of nature becoming corrupted and raped by our reckless ways. In the current time, many of the trees have been cut down, and the air is filled with a thick smog. To walk about the most populated cities without a mask is nearly suicide. The sky is constantly overcast with clouds of smoke, but unfortunately they do not block out the ultraviolet rays that pummel the surface of our now nearly completely unprotected planet, the ozone having been destroyed a long time ago. To drink the city water is to condemn oneself to certain death. Nothing is safe anymore, and traces of nature are rare. Only in the most wildest of places do sanctuaries of untainted nature rest. It is in these places that people who have fought for nature all along have gathered and make what is pretty much their final stand against the constant pollution of Earth.

A long time ago, there used to be laws that protected the environment, but with the United States government as corrupt as it is, many of these laws were bypassed by big business. As a result, things were never reigned in. The government continued becoming more and more oriented around greed instead of the welfare of its people that the environmental laws and organizations were abolished completely. Powerful entities and societies emerged and subjugated the people with frightening weaponry and terrifying propoganda. They led the revolution that would enforce even more scientific progress with complete neglect to the world we live in. True be it that there were those who fought nobly against these forces, but they were quashed easily and forced to retreat. In present day, not a single soul dares raise his or her voice about the situation of the world's practical demise in fear of death. Though, looking at it now, we're all going to die one way or another...

The people are not helpless. Though the present is a dire one, the people are not without hope. The planet is fighting back. Natural disasters have begun to devastate the country ranging from tornadoes in the central regions to hurricanes and tsunamis on the coasts. Despite being so advanced, the USWRD (United States Weather Research Division) cannot come up with any logical or scientific as to why these weather patterns have suddenly taken place. Unknown to them, this world is far more magical than they know, and Nature has blessed the chosen who have taken sanctuary in the wild with impressive gifts--gifts that would give them the power to fight back against the entities behind the destruction of this planet.

Enter a war between the corrupt beings of mankind who worship machines and scientific progress and the nature-loving warriors who have taken oaths to reversing the damage dealt to their world.

Which side will YOU choose?


* * *

So yeah. I really can't say any more than what I said above. There will be two sides, kind of like Twist of Fate. One will be for the Machines and one will be for Nature. Those supporting Machines cannot use magic, but can access special science-based abilities using a new stat, Stamina (STA.) Those supporting Nature will have access to magic that we're familiar with and will use standard MP. However, never assume that things will be so straightforward. >:3 Express your interest and what side you'd like to join here~

EDIT: Oh yeah. Durn will be co-GM of this role play. :> I felt like that was important to mention.

I must say, Vincent's D-Ability goes so well with Celina, just as her Hydromancy goes awesome with his A-Abilities. Masq, I think I'll start with a water Ability instead of the Rock one...

The limit is 6, Inkblot. Many apologies. All the slots are full.

Allindur, start with what you wish. I gave you all the MP costs of your moves, so just rearrange them and such to your liking. XD
