Underground Facility A62U, Epoch Academy High 4.38 PM, Friday, 13/06/2008
Incessant. Unending. Guttural shrieks and frenzied banging. His powerfully reinforced door groaned under the strain.
He pinched the bridge of his nose and sighed regretfully, massaging his temple at the same time with his other hand. All the while, red flashing sirens kept blaring around him as if to mock his failures. The experiments were getting out of control. Worse, he would not be the only person suffering from their effects. His precious staff. And more importantly, the innocent civilians living above his underground facility. The lucky ones would die. He shut his eyes and shuddered. The unlucky ones would suffer a fate worse than death. Why must he place his facility underneath a civilians' area for Heaven's sake? And of all places, a school?
There might be hope though. There was always hope. But it seemed so bleak right now that he couldn't even see a tiny glimmer of it. There was nothing else he could do. He bit his lips and drew out a trickle of blood. His superiors had been notified. They would isolate the area soon. But the source must be contained. Or the very least slowed down. He MUST blow up the facility. Why then, was it so hard to do so?
A hand was placed onto his shoulder gently. He opened his eyes and shifted his head around. It was his assistant. His ever faithful ever so loyal assistant. She smiled in understanding at him and squeezed his shoulder reassuringly. He wanted to break down and cry right then and there. Claw marks had ruined her beautiful face. His assistant had lost both her eyes. They were now pinched shut, leaking crimson blood where there was once a pair of beautiful sapphire jewels. She would bleed to death soon. And here she was, giving him encouragement. Even in dying, she did not blame him.
"We understand, Professor."
All around her were the rest of his staff; his remaining staff that had managed to survive so far. All of them nodded their heads in grim understanding of the situation. All of them knew what he had to do. They would not blame him. He drew in a deep shaky breath. All of them had suffered. Most of which had lost a limb or another. Some of which were dying, like his assistant. The rest... the rest were the lucky ones. There was no choice then. He must do what was needed to stop the Evil before them.
He swiveled his chair around to face the Prime Mainframe and brought up the File, the one of which he had been working on for most of his life. He stared at it long and hard, and swallowed.
Project Codename: Operation Hallowed Moon Designated Area: Underground Facility A62U, Epoch Academy High Filecase Specifics: Denied <Priority Zero Access Required>
He ignored the prompt for password and just keyed in an additional line.
It was just for formality's sake. He knew that no one would be able to access this File ever again. But now, he could let go. A series of clicks brought up the self-destruct window. There were three different strings of codes to be typed down to remove the fail-safes. He entered each resolutely and confirmed his entries. Another window popped up showing a timer of 3.00 minutes. A second later, the numbers began to decrease, slowly and steadily.
He closed his eyes again, determined to keep it shut this time till the end arrived. He vaguely felt his assistant embraced him from behind and laid her head upon his back. Her wounds trickled trails of blood down the back of his shirt.
The guttural shrieks and frenzied banging continued.
Epoch Academy High 4.45 PM, Friday, 13/06/2008
You shifted the rubble above you aside, coughed out the dust particles from your lungs and took in a deep breath of… dusty air. You coughed again. And again. And again.
Blearily, you opened your tears-rimmed eyes. You blinked them several times. You are disoriented.
You pushed yourself up onto your elbows. And you looked around.
It was a scene of carnage. A scene of destruction. A scene of death.
Bodies littered the ground. Your classmates. Your friends. Your teachers. Your mentors. And more importantly, people who were just alive moments ago. People who just spoke to you. Who just laughed with you. Who just... who just… who just…
You vomited onto the ground. You felt sickened. Tired. Confused.
What just happened? You only remembered an explosion. An explosion that rocked the ground. Shook the walls. Shattered the windows. An explosion that crumbled the very foundation of the school into ruins and stones.
And everyone died. Dead. All dead. Are you the only one who survived?
And in the distance, you heard the echoes of an unholy shriek that gripped your heart in terror.

[Hello, I am new (absolute beginner) to this RP thing, but I would like to give it a try.]
Name: Garin Gender: Male Age: 17 Appearance: 5'8" and dark, but not quite black hair. Looks are quite ordinary. Apparel: Dressed in carpenter jeans and a white button down shirt, which is now dirty, bloody, and torn due to the explosion. Jeans are intact, but have blood and dirt on them. Background: Due to his nondistinguished features, Garin is the type that easily blends into a crowd. However, Garin likes this quality about himself, as it hides his normally erratic behavior. He is also very good at improvising and creating things from nearby items. He also tends to destroy things in the process of creating other things. Skills: Combat 1
Spellcraft 1 Inventory: looking glass 2/20
fire wand 2/20
(total 4/20) Status: alive
No problem. Fresh blood (pun intended) is always welcomed.
A notice before we start. Equipment slot indicates how big an equipment it. Therefore, you can only take a Whip (Slot 4), or Boots of Silence and Healing Salve (Slot 3 + Slot 1 = 4), or Fire Wand and Looking Glass (Slot 2 + Slot 2 = 4), or any other combination that makes up to 4. The purpose of restriction is to create a unique experience for that player. Don't worry too much about the lack of items though. Scavenging is a theme in this game.
Just edit your post to change your starting equipment. Other than that, the rest is fine.
Also, this thread is for sign-up, character creation and discussion. After your character is approved, you will be redirected to another thread for your RP.
Also Semi new to this, but I've RP in real life, so it doesn't seem too different!

Welcome. You still got 1 more starting item slot that you can fill up. Other than that, the rest is fine. If you only want to fill 3 slots only, that's fine as well. I'll be waiting for your reply before starting your game.
On another note, it's starting to get a bit crowded for me to handle solo journeys for everyone. I hope you all don't mind if I start to pair up some of you sometimes down the road. The starting part will still be solo though.
