      Gaia's Folly

      Gaia's Folly

      ATTENTION NEW PLAYERS
      I encourage anyone interested in attempting to join. I'll bear with you if you're new and try and get you on the right road. It's not too complex so please don't feel discouraged in joining for any reason.

      This prologue isn't a necessary read but it explains pretty much the backdrop of the story.

      Toward the middle of the 21st Century Earth was becoming a bleak gem of it's former self. Crises struck many countries and many governments rose up and fell. However three corporations created stability in these troubling times. Oneiros Unlimtd., Tyrannia , and Europa Americanus. The three corporations which came out of a poverty stricken time enlisted private armies and enacted police states worldwide. It doesn't matter which corporation holds power where on Earth but rather that nowhere on Earth is free.

      Around this time a subsidiary of Oneiros came to be, the Terra Nova Project, that was focused on colonizing new worlds. Tyrannia began working on colonization within a new branch named Tyrannia de Extra-Terra, and last but not least was Europa Americanus to the game. They lead the way during this time financing the largest colonization efforts. Many space colonies failed yet the company pressed on and on September 6, 2051 New Baltimore was established successfully and soon became self sufficient in a few short years. It generated little profit and the company then began seeking interest in colonizing Mars. In 2062 Oneiros Unlimtd. was the first to the game. They successfully set up a colony, Redwoode, the following year and began heavily terraforming the planet. The colony was a limited bio-dome. It's resources to last only a century by which the company thought Mars would be habitable. It was a cost effective move and placed Oneiros as the leader in the new Martian colonization. However it was not long until other colonies were being sprouted by the rival corporations. Some smaller corporations even got into the game most notably Utopia inc. which set up several bio-domes, Dystopia, Utopia, and New Rome, and placed itself as a future threat to the mega-corporations.

      In 2108 the terraforming efforts catalyzed by the competition on Mars reached a breakthrough. For what some believed to be the first time in Mars history rain fell. In 2119 the atmosphere was deemed breathable and in 2134 Mars was now recognized as Earth's twin. Although by this time Earth was very uninhabitable. Most of Earth's atmosphere became dangerous due to the reckless rape humanity had done to it. All species were extinct save for bio-domes and all of Earth's inhabitants lived indoors a in very bleak Megatropolis that covered all of Earth's landmass. Those wealthy enough lived in bio-domes or space colonies and some became colonists. However business run colonizing efforts drew millions if not billions to Mars. Earth's population of 11.4 billion was busting at the seams and Mars new found hospitable environment seemed a glimmer of hope to the masses of poor sickly starving people. By 2172 Mars population had reached 4 billion.

      However chance does not come without a price. The megacorporations had huge private armies that policed the huge population and during this time freedom was something unheard of. Only on Mars could people seek freedom and on Mars many did. Countless extremist groups came to exist promising freedom, equality, and a chance to get ahead for all people. It is not surprising that millions joined these groups and soon Mars was becoming a wild place. Countless cities were named free under these groups such as The United States of Prima. It was at this time that the corporations sought to take back what was rightfully theres. A very secret project deemed S.H.O.C.K. had been underway for years. Genetically modified clones of people had been trained since birth to follow orders and many implants were given which assured none could become individual. They all acted as a unit and they were all brothers. However in a few isolated cases these Cosmorines broke free of their genetic programming and became individual in thought and feeling. Forever scarred by their pasts these individuals deserted and many were hunted down. However those lucky enough to escape the clutches of their Corporate Overlords became elite warriors for terrorist causes usually.

      This leaves us in a very troubled time. However it seems that Mars is ready for change something unexpected is sure to occur soon.

      Name: dakun uruhu (dah-koon ooroohoo)
      gender: male
      age: 20

      appearance: average height, medium length black hair, brown eyes, average build

      talents: exceptionally good with sniping, and technological skills(such as hacking)

      persona: a loner most of the time, loves a challenge though. tries to remain quiet and reserved, but when a topic of interest is at hand, grab some duct tape, you wont here silence until then. hes often pretty free going about most things, but the few that tick him off will do so like a nuke.

      I like. This. Activity in the RP section is good. Cyberpunk dystopian future with biodomes is. Good. All is well.

      (question: how come this thread isn't in the inactive section? last time someone posted was like almost a year ago.)
      I have returned, but I'm not the same
      I'm a shadow, a shell, it's no longer a game
      Peace is dead, peace is gone
      All that remains is a chilling song
