    Default [M] Specs in the Ocean (OOC)


    Specs in the Ocean

    IC

    [Rated M for language, violence, elements of supernatural/fantasy horror, and other potential mature themes.]

    Atlantis. This once beautiful world, full of life, cities filled to the brim with people. Hundreds of years ago, the Great Drowning began and covered the world in an endless ocean. Ancient mountain tops are now the only land masses, too small to support the remaining world’s population. Most who survived began to construct ships from whatever they could get their hands on, and began to live on the ocean's surface. Today, hundreds of fleets travel the ocean, living off of what they can catch and grow, salvaging from wrecks and cities on the ocean floor in this world they know as Nero.

    Over the years many have been exposed to unique materials, radioactive substances, and were changed over time. Those who’ve been affected are more kindly referred to as “Shifted”. The few island settlements tend to reject such beings while the Shifted are more welcome in the fleets that inhabit the sea.

    These fleets that roam the great ocean are generally self-sustaining, growing and gathering their own food out at sea as they seek and retrieve salvage from the ocean floor, hoping to get some of the ancient crystal powered technology used by their predecessors. Technology which has not been seen since the drowning of the world. Energy sources that would put the gas they use to shame, weapons that could easily punch a hole through a ship’s hull, and equipment that could do the same job better than anything else known.

    This post is a placeholder for various extra things that no not necessarily relate to the grander plot or world building, and will also be used for notes on updates (maybe).

    I'll be making my own character in a bit.

    make sure to link the character sheets by post number
    The one who will save you, the one who will stick by you, the one that will never back down,
    or maybe the one that finally brings you to your knees and makes you realize what kind of person you are.

    Ah, another precious one to adopt. Looks good to me, Koti~! Consider Shelk accepted.

    This should be enough of a crew to get started, but I encourage any person lurking to join in the shenanigans.

    Potential shenanigan expansion aside, IC should go up in the next few days.

    (Second post is also starting to look mighty interesting right now.)
