Strange New World(RP)(Non-Cannon)

Jen: 10
((And so it begins... I'm going to repost the 'Basics' again in case we're in need of a refresher or new players join - which is perfectly fine by me))

"Non-Canon" - This means nothing that takes place here is officially part of the Antilia universe. The game's still in early development and such, and I'm sure Jeff doesn't even know everything in the world yet. I've been developing my own world for 5 years and really only got one civilization on it completely worked out.

In other words, because we have so limited knowledge of the world we can't do something that's officially part of that universe. We can work as best we can to stay on track, but it would be virtually impossible. I'm pretty certain Jeff won't want to be constantly checking on us (but feel free to do so any time!).

RolePlay - For those who don't know what RolePlay(RP) is... RP is where you fill the shoes of a character, describing what they do and think and interacting with other players. Basicly it's like turning a video-game into an all text experience, or you might see it like co-writing a story.

[u]Rules[/u] - Stuff no-one likes, but we have to have them.

* RolePlay - This is a RP, not at chat or 'word game'

* No Net Speak - No 'lol' or ':)' 'ttyl'. Full words please, try to spell well and have proper grammar(not so much on the grammar part because I'm horrible at it myself ^^)

* Out Of Character(OOC) - Sometimes it is necessary to communicate past your characters. OOC chat is where you drop the roleplaying to talk as a normal person, maybe you want to ask someone to clarify what they meant in a post. When you do something in OOC please label with: ((OOC: Text here))

* Game Master(GM) - Games need someone to operate them, that's the game master. That person sets up the plot and creates the situations. Players have control of their characters, but not a whole lot of the world around them. Since I opened up this game, I'm the GM. Jeff or anyone who knows more about the Antilia world though can chime in if I set something up wrong

* The Usual - Be kind, don't make over powered characters, have fun, etc.

Strange New World

Your day ended lust like any other. You went to bed, after a long days work - or rather no work if you're lazy. As usual you tossed and turned for nearly an hour before your mind relaxed and you fell asleep.

Although things seemed normal so far, your dream becomes wild and strange. You see familiar faces, linked with both good times and the bad - intermixed with scenes of strange places you've never seen. Soon any resemblance to things you knew in your daily life were gone, replaced with both beautiful and horrid sights you've never seen.

The scenes grow darker and more horrible as it goes on, it doesn't even try to pretend like reality like dreams sometimes do - and yet even knowing it's a nightmare you can't get yourself to wake up. Finally, when the images hit a point where you can't stand them anymore you wake. You have the feeling like you just fell into your body, like how you do if you have a dream about falling from great height. You wake from your feverish sweat and look around.

You are no longer in your bedroom. You are in a dense forest like you haven't seen before, it's hotter and more wet than any forest you've been in. None of the plants look in anyway familiar to what you're used to. You're in a jungle, although the vocabulary for it you do not have. You remember this is a scene you saw when the dream first started. When you look around you, you see familiar faces, and some you don't recognize - maybe a few that shouldn't even exist anymore.

They are all bewildered as you, but they too all look to have awaken from a feverish dream.

Samantha Arrow looked around in fear, wondering if the beasts she saw in her dream were in fact real. All she saw though was a strange forest, and a group of people that she didn't know at all were there with her. She was about to start accusing them of kidnapping her, but she saw on their faces they were as confused as she was.

She whimpered a little, so overwhelmed by the dream she had just had to speak.

((A final note, I'll only be able to post a couple times a day, try not to run too far ahead of me))

((Nice, so I'm guessing all characters are going to be in that area. Also, first.))

Kiev looked at the rest of the people around himself in silence. All those restless hours were now reality. He sat there looking around brushing the fur on his head thinking. Trying to figure out the how was already driving the half insane character he was, even madder.

He sighed and got up, at least he wasn't the only one.

Kiev himself is a gray furred Felo of average height.

((Changed my mind, new character))

((I think I might wanna try this out.))

As Deltan awoke, he let out a short yelp. The tan Kisan, breathing uncontrollably, looked around at the others, who seemed as confused as he was. Deltan pondered for a few seconds if they knew anything, while trying to calm down a little.

((Let's give it a try then))

Yasif opened his eyes and grasped for air, startled by the nightmare he had just envisioned. He shook his head and threw a quick, nervous glance at his surroundings.
Strewed across what appeared to be a small glade, was a group of people, none of them familiar to him.

He inhaled deeply and composed himself, standing up and brushing off the soil that got stuck in his white, vulan fur.

"What sort of place is this?" he said to himself.

((None of the old characters are here. That's great, because we'd be rehashin the same ideas over again. However, I am now stuck for a character, and will probably sleep on it in hopes my dreams will once again provide the answer.))

((You guys can use your old characters if you wanted, kinda what I was going for. When I said Sam didn't recognize anyone I was going to have it so she forgot everything that happened *excuse for me not playing when you guys were*))

((Actually sounds better now I don't have to reinvent from the start))

Joseph aka Moonshine sat up and rubbed his head, "What the...what's going on?" He said out loud but not to anyone in particular.

((I am changing him a little though, cause I want necromancy))

"In fact, how did i ended here in the first place?"

Yasif rubbed his forehead and tried to remember, but with no avail. Macabre, nightmarish visions poisoned his mind as he tried to reminisce, compelling him to take a step further. Those visions made him dizzy and with the stomach in knots. Without thinking, he leaned with both arms upon a nearby tree and puked out what appeared to be the remains of his last meal.

"By the Gods... what happened to me... why can't i remember..." he said, breathing heavily as if he had a fever.

((Thinking about being a cleric. Just writing as ideas come to mind))

((yikes I forgot the whole description of my character))

The full black vulan with white tipped tail, Joseph, rubbed his head, just to snap to the sound of the other fur throwing up. It was everything he could do not to lose his last meal to the sound. He looks down and shakes his head, "You play with dead bodies and your going to throw up to a sound...wuss", he was talking to himself.

Kiev looked around, people he'd never seen before and doubted he wanted know. He stretched then spoke, "Well, since we're all in this together..." he spoke loudly, feeling like someone was about to stab him, "We might as well as get to now each other...the names Kiev..." his voice wondered off, looking at them all.

((Named him after the city that was more or less annihilated by Russian traps afetr the Germans took control of the city, according to Hans Roth, he got a first hand witness of a quarter of the city blowing up at once))
