The Ruin destroyed Earth. That's what they say. But there are remains. A ball of dust and rock, devoid of life except for a band of survivors. Whatever your reasons, you are on Earth. Explore, fight, find a way off the planet. Survive the Devastation. Rules: Be Respectful - Please keep everything appropriate and don’t bring arguments to the table. Talk - Be clear on talking IC and OOC, sharing info with players whose characters are not present is alright, just don’t Metagame, and no taking back you’re action unless otherwise stated by me. And Everything Else - there is a whole thread about basic rules. GO READ THAT (Please) Character Creation: Classes: There are four classes in the RP that correspond to the some of the archetypes of the game. Warrior, (Swords, Axes, Spears, ETC.) Ranger, (Guns, Bows.) Mage, (Staves.) and Brawler. (Gauntlet, Boomerangs, Thrown, ETC.) Races: All of the vanilla races are allowed. Backgrounds: There are also four backgrounds that change where you start the game, and the roleplaying aspects, but no other effects. Survivor, (Survived the destruction of Earth, but stuck on the planet.) Scavenger, (Returned to Earth to salvage, but the strange things that happened to the planet made you crash.) Maroon, (Sent to Earth as punishment for a crime.) and Recolonizer. (Returned to Earth as part of a recolonization operation.) Equipment: Please choose two sets of weapons corresponding to your class. Note that some weapons can be used by other classes that wouldn’t normally use them. Warriors may use bows, Rangers can use daggers, and Mages can use shortswords. This is so that all characters may have a ranged and melee, and have a backup if they run out of energy. You may have any other equipment that has no effect besides roleplay, as well as 10 torches, 2 bandages and 5 salves. Character Sheets: Please set up your character like this example: Acalan Orazca Avian Warrior, Scavenger. Equipment: - Durasteel Broadsword, Hunting Bow - Black Motorcycle Jacket, Blue Jeans - Neck chain, with a piece of a Stargazer wing. - Faded photo of dead family members. Appearance: Acalan has blue feathers and a curved beak, his feathers curving back at the head for a pointy hairdo. Personality: A calm leader on the outside, his rage for the death of his family brewing just under the surface, Acalan leads his band of scavengers well, and is ruthless in combat. Backstory: After his family took the jump, he was orphaned at the age of 13. He stowed away on a trading ship on his home planet, and eventually got caught by some scavengers when he sneaked onto their ship at a spacedock. He joined their crew and his reputation grew quickly, leading to a mutiny, and he took command of the ship. Please try to keep the backstories believable, and not too long. The RP will start after we have around 5-7 players, but new ones will always be welcome. IMPORTANT NOTES I FORGOT TO AD I am going to be making up a bunch of lore. It is not canon unless the devs say so, and if they completely debunk everything I say I will not change it anyway but whatever. THE BIG ASSUMTIONS Earth is not completly destroyed. Protectorate city, (tutorial city) is future London. Starbound takes place in 2303 AD, We use a date system of BSB (Before Starbound) and ASB (After Starbound), so the RP would take place in 1 ASB, and today would be 285 BSB. And now, the first time in ages the spoiler is actually used for spoilers, ⚠ WARNING ⚠ DO NOT READ THIS SECTION IF YOU ARE NOT A SURVIVOUR OR A MAROON WHO HAS BEEN THERE BEFORE THE RP STARTS. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED. The Earth is corrupted with remnants of the ruin that Nox and the rest of the Ocassus are using to try to ressurect the Ruin. And thats all. Sorry for not including that in the origional. And sorry for all the caps. I'm really not sorry honestly. Sayonara. You can stop reading now.
