The year is 2568 A.D, or now as it is coined, 334 A.E. Mars has been made habitable through elaborate terraforming over the course of a few centuries. Fourteen months after correctional impact, the ISC (International Space Corporation) has declared a state of emergency on the entirety of Mars. Its safety compromised by a new, unidentified life form, mass evacuations have been ordered. As people attempt to escape from the falling planet, you find yourself caught in the horrific events as you watch the home you grew up on fall apart and shred to pieces by the alien life form that have ironically been dubbed "Martians".
Humans begin to terramorph Mars in the mid 21st century. In light of these new efforts, the world's super powers join forced and form the ISC. The ISC's main objective is to overlook the terramorphing of Mars and help establish a working council and government on the planet once it is made habitable. The process is long and consuming of many resources, from money to elements from Earth. However, in 2234, the ISC releases official statements declaring that Mars is now habitable and opens it up for living. This day is officially labeled Emergence Day, and marks the first day on the new calendar (A.E.) Many people flock to the new planet and life begins new. The planet yields many new opportunities and trade between the mother planet and Mars becomes common - as Mars is capable of growing a number of edible plants and vegetables that Earth is not. This stipulates the economy and the human population escalates to dangerous levels.
Over the course of the years, the ISC discovers that the orbit of Mars is slowly shifting out of place. Eventually, the planet would be pulled into the Sun in a flaming ball, causing billions of billions of dollars worth of damage. In an attempt to bring the planet back to its orbit, the ISC bombards it with a number of asteroids. After a while, things seem well. It is only near a year after that people begin to realize the consequences of the ISC's actions.
How this would work:
This would be a very basic survival RP where you have to look around for resources while you are assaulted by aliens that rip people to shreds. You would have your weapons and particular skill sets. This RP is very Dead Space inspired and will likely mirror many skills and weapons from the series.
OoCs would look something like this:
- Technician: People capable of carrying and handling long range equipment and are able to fix a number of electronic equipment.
- Miners: People that specialize in using heavy, close range equipment.
- Medic: People that specialize in the art of first aid, given they have the right supplies.
- Hazmat Team: Hazmat team members are capable of fighting with chemicals as well as harvesting chemicals to provide support to other team members.
Skill Set (Skills will be specified)
Weapons (You will be allowed to use a weapon according to your profession of your choise. Secondary weapons will be listed and you can make a choice between however many provided.)
