PostSubject: Science Fiction - Underground (IN PLAY)   Fri Dec 02, 2011 3:44 am

Five years ago a nuclear war ravaged the earth.

Few have survived.

Deep below the earth are eight expansive underground living units, connecting to one central hub. Each unit has ten private living chambers, a large communal shower and restroom, a kitchen and food storage area, a garden, a storage room, and a large common room. They are designed to support approximately 25 people comfortably or 30 if they ration their supplies appropriately.

The lving unit you are in, purchased by billionaire tychoon James Carnegei, has 38 people living within. The persons in the bunkers include members of the Carnegie family, the Kingstons, and the Beckinghams. Carnegie invited the family of his closest friends (the Kingstons) and his wife invited the family of her closest friends (the Beckinghams). There are sixteen Carnegie's (included James and his wife Eleanor), twelve Beckinghams, and ten Kingstons.

You will create your character as a member of one of the three families. You may not play as James or Eleanor Carnegie, or the matriarch/patriarch of the Kingstons or Beckinghams.

This game will not start until we have a sizeable group to play, consisting of at least six players.

It kind of sounds like we'd be playing a clan of WASPs in some post-apocalyptic soap opera. XD

Is the game set in more or less the modern day, the near-future, or do we get to play like this happened in the 50s? I personally like the last idea best.

Present-ish setting. A few years in the future.

How many character are we allowed to play, and do you have any basis for what you want us to say of our character like in a character sheet or skeleton or outline of some sort or jsut write what we feel like writing that more or less sums up our character?

Hi, welcome to the site.

Because we're waiting on a minimum of six players, it'll still be a while before we get started on it.

I haven't come up with a character format to use yet, so as long as you cover your name, relation to the patriarchs of each family, description of appearance and personality, age, and a brief background then we're good.

Closer to start up time we'll hopefully have something standardized.

How's this? If you have an issues, please let me know.

Ashley Kingston, unmarried daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Kingston, the heads of the family. Ashley is of the age to be a freshman in college, if only she weren't stuck at the bottom of a hole with the family she can't get along with and plenty of other people she doesn't know that well. She often gets into arguments with authority figures, concerning her future as well as what she "should and shouldn't" do. She doesn't rebel against the high class life she was raised in, but it also isn't what she plans on doing her entire life. Given the option, she would much prefer a more down-to-earth life doing something she not only knew how to do well but liked doing, namely, gardening and botany.
Formally, Ashley isn't shy about wearing dresses and skirts, however, casually, she prefers jeans, a T-shirt, and a nice jacket. She keeps her dark, blonde hair (without the luster or light tone of trully blonde hair) cut short, dangling below her pierced ears. Her bangs hang slanted, and her eyes are a dull blue. She has her mother's skin. There's nothing overly remarkable about her physical shape either; she may be tall and thin, but she lacks decent curvature while also not quite being a stick. She is stuck in quite an unremarkable grey area.

I have another question: since we don't get to play the patriarch/matriarchs, can we get a description of them, mainly their appearance and personality so we can base family relations around them?

Good suggestion, yes. When the game is ready to start playing we'll have an info thread stickied for reference.

Character:
1/3  (1/3)
Info: Ulmark
More info: A simple former slave from a south-western land. He likes hitting things with sticks, so don't make him mad... especially if he has a stick

PostSubject: Re: Science Fiction - Underground (IN PLAY)   Sat Dec 17, 2011 11:55 pm

Yes, finally a little sci-fi!

Joshua Gleeford
Age: 68
Appearance: An elderly caucasion male with liverspots on his wrinkled face. He has gray hair on the sides and back of his head, with a considerable bald spot on the top. Normaly wears a sweatervest over a dress shirt, khakis, and loafers. Walks with a wooden cane, although he has been seen without it.
Description: The father of Mrs. Kingston (Do you actually have a name for them?), he was brought into the bunker on behalf of the Mrs. Kingston, much to the objection of Mr. Kingston. Although many consider him senile, all of his tests prove him to be completely healthy, mentally and physically. Although the physically part brings up questionsa about his "lucky cane", no one ever happens to recieve an answer. Joshua normally sticks to himself, but for some reason he always appears at the scene of the action to give what he considers his "sage advice".

Well, I shall help to get this underway then.

Name: Vanna Beckingham
Age: 20
Appearance: Something like this
Background: Vanna is naturally a blonde, but dyes her hair brown just to spite her parents. She is the epitome of the "bad girl". She has several tattoos that her parents don't approve of. Also a smoking habit that they do not approve of.. Along with a few other things. According to her family, she is the slut. Every family has one, and she is the one. Vanna is insatiable, a drunk, and very outspoken. If she has an opinion, you will hear it and if she wants something, she will get it. Even though she isn't the ideal child, she is still daddy's little girl and can get away with murder. She has a soft side to her that people rarely (if ever) see. And she had some big objections about hiding in a (sizeable) hole while the apocalypse or whatever happened. She is not happy to be here, and will express it to anyone who listens.

PostSubject: Re: Science Fiction - Underground (IN PLAY)   Tue Jan 03, 2012 4:55 am

Name: Aaron Carnegie (son of Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie)
Age: 16
Appearance: He is small for his age with little muscle and fat. He is pale from the lack of sunlight even before the bombs and has black hair and green eyes. His nickname in school was Snow White. He is kinda hairy on his arms and legs but besides that there isn't very much body hair. He also never has to shave because hair doesn't grow on his upper lip or chin.

Personality: Aaron is polite, shy and not very talkative, he never was one to start a conversation even before the bombs dropped. He hardly ever disobeys any orders given from anyone because he doesn't ever stick up for himself also he gives in to peer pressure easily. He loves to read and spends most of his time in his room doing exactly that. He also has some major self esteem issues.

Background: When Aaron was born it was a big deal because well, he was born. His first few birthdays only family members would come because he wasn't old enough to go to school and make friends. Then all the sudden he had to go to school. From the fist time he went he has HATED IT with a passion. Don't get him wrong he loved to learn, he just didn't love the people. Not even the teachers, and especially the other kids. once he got into elementary school he started to get bullied by others so Mr. and Mrs. Carnegie pulled him out and got him a private tutor that would teach all his lessons. Aaron loved this idea and when he met his tutor Frank he thought this was the best thing to happen in his life. Frank was a really cool guy and he and Aaron got pretty close until one day Frank came onto him. It was a very awkward and scary moment when Frank touched his no no spot. Aaron (not being the physical type) screamed for his mommy. When his parents found out they got Frank arrested. Ever since then Aaron has had even worse trust issues. When the bombs dropped he was rushed into his new home. He went directly into his room and stayed there for the whole day by himself. After that he spent most of his time in his room reading. He eventually read something about mechanics and electronics and it peaked his interest so he started to tinker with things in his room. He found his new passion and tinkered with about everything in his sanctuary teaching mostly himself about it all with only a few books for guide lines. He has run out of things to tinker in his room so he has started to leave his room more and more each day tinkering with messing with different objects along the way. He has started to let go of his reclusive roots and started to branch out into the world of being social.

Name: Vance Beckingham
Sex: M
Age: 20 (a minute or so younger than his sister)
Appearance: This, at Fe's recommendation
Background: Vance appears to be an almost complete mirror opposite to his twin sister; he is reserved, pensive and a dutiful son, if not a particularly devoted one. He is disinclined to speak or give an opinion unless directly prompted; when he deviates from this personal norm, it is a sure sign he is up to something, though no one save his sister knows him well enough to recognize this.
Though not particularly outgoing, he is not shy and is capable of playing a crowd when he must. He is fairly able physically and favors defensive or diversionary techniques in a fight to tire or confuse his opponents, although he ultimately prefers to forgo lifting a hand at all and instead manipulate those who antagonize him.
He wastes his loyalty on nothing and no one but his sister, with whom he has been in love all his life, even before he knew what that meant. Before the bombs fell, Vance took ill when he was young and nearly died. It was Vanna’s attentiveness at this time that turned an already close bond into something more. When he finally got better, through what he largely believes were her efforts, Vance pledged himself to his sister and has since accepted, even revels in, being her lapdog. She abuses this sometimes, but no more than he uses his own influence to keep her close. Later, what began as adolescent experimentation between the twins evolved into a secret romance, the two of them finding a solace in one another unmatched anywhere else.

Holy shit that's six characters.

I'm going to leave this up for one more week and then we'll get started.


Please look at your character descriptions and make absolutely certain that you want to play this character. Also, please look at the other players characters. We have a pair of real-life brothers playing the roles of two in-character brothers. If you two (Havok and Waste) don't want to do it like that, now is your opportunity to change. We also have an old man (Bo), make certain you want to play the role of an elderly man and all the negative aspects that can come with playing a character of age.

Projected starting date: Tuesday (Jan 17th). If the start up date needs post poned for any reason we will notify you.

For anyone else reading this: It is not too late to join.

Can we have a bit of a rivalry between the Beckinghams and the Kingstons? Might make things a lot more interesting. ^^

So I'm not entirely sure if there's something I have to do besides introducing myself before getting into a game, but if not then here's my character.

Name: Dominic Kingston
Sex: M
Age:24
Relation to family head: Nephew

Personality: Dominic Kingston is a dreamer. All he can think about is the outside world, and what it was like to be on the verge of adulthood before the bombs went off. Intensely introverted, he spends his days listening to music (what little of it he can find) and daydreaming about the life he could have had. This has made him cynical, and he is prone to fits of depression. When not cooped up in his room, he walks the halls of his "prison" and occasionally writes in the common room of the unit.

Appearance: Dominic is scrawny with blond hair and blue eyes. He's about 5'9", and weighs about 165 lbs. His style mirrors that of pop punk style in the mid 2000s area. He wears glasses, and generally has a blank expression on his face. He has hemophilia (a bleeding disorder) and his clotting time is 13 minutes.

Background: Born into the upper middle class, Dominic had a largely average life. He made decent grades in school, was well liked by his peers, and generally had no problem with authority figures. After high school, he went to a well known university to major in pre-med. There he fell in with the party crowd, and began living a carpe diem lifestyle. He was planning to run away from his life to Europe with a couple of friends. Then the bombs fell.

The following are things to consider for all characters; this is what we'll need.

Appearance. (ethinicity and hair color are not enough, think ht, wt, eyes, facial features, tatoos, birth marks, distinguishing features, etc. Not all of those, but try to hit a few up)

Personality. Who the hell is this guy? Is he a swell easy going guy? Is he a pompous asshole? Is he nervous, aggressive, passive, intelligent, slow to pick up on things. Is he a loner or a socialite?

You mentioned taht his girlfriend and mom died in the war. Is he over this? Is he still emotionally affected by this? What's he feel about it?

That's all I got, but more is always better than less so don't feel like you need to stop if you feel like you're on a roll.
