    Default Skyline

    Skyline



    Skyline: A universe painstakingly crafted and forged from the depths of what's possible--and impossible. It's the deepest, purest reflection of humanity. Humans, all bound together by flesh and blood, cursed with logic and impulse, strung together by grey morality and an unquenchable thirst. Whoever said being "only human" was a bad thing?

    We're not perfect. Some of us are kings, and some slaves. Some are good, some are questionable in their motives. We're proud and ashamed, we're brave and we're cowards. We'll argue forever over what's good and what's evil; but you're foolish if you think right and wrong are anything more than words.

    Skyline takes humanity, our mother, Earth, and sends it into a world where we aren't the best. It sends us in over our heads and ravages everything we've ever known and ever will. Humans have spent a long time praying, and an even longer time trying to stand on our own two feet.

    We've been looking into the skies for a long time. Now, it's finally looked back.

    Skyline is an RP, but it's so much more than that. I'm going to challenge the most basic rules and limits that we ourselves have placed on our art form. I'm going to take it all, turn it upside down, and show and relay the true, ugly beauty of what we're all capable of. Skyline's here to throw away all notions of inferiority and superiority in RPing. It's going to make your characters strain to the breaking point. Most importantly, though, it's going to be forged by everyone involved. We're going to make a work of art.

    And we'll do it together. You and I. All of us.

    To prove I'm not just using over-dramatic theatricality, I'm inviting you to join. Here, in the sign-ups, things will already be different. Sign-ups are completely different, because frankly, they're ineffective. They don't work well. When I RP with you, I could care less about your character's backstory and what makes them so special. No, I want to know more. I want to sink my teeth in, strip away all of the flimsy walls we've placed on our characters, and dive deep into the naked, raw humanity of them. Everybody's capable of creating a masterpiece. Just because your characters aren't known to the world doesn't mean they can't be brilliant, excellent, profound works of writing and creativity.

    And because of that, I'm going to accept or deny you based on you. I have no doubts that each and every one of you who applies is good enough to be a member of Skyline; it isn't a question of your skill. It's a question of how willing and able you are to truly dive in alongside me; how willing you are to be challenged and accept the call of that challenge. I won't lie; this RP is serious. It's going to take devotion, but I promise you that for every once you put in, you'll be compensated tenfold. This RP is about perfection and the flaws that it consists of. It's about growth, and learning, and mistakes; it's about not only your character's growth, but yours as a writer as well. It's about black, velvet violins. Remember that last sentence. I'm sure I'd love to hear about it in a PM. It's not just an RP; it's a world. It's a novel. It's a story. It's a myth. It's an experience.

    Won't you join me?

    The Setting



    The Story



    The Application



    Welcome to Skyline. It's going to be an experience you'll never forget.

    Also this RP is really cool. It's like Percy Jackson. You can be a god's reincarnation and have powers and you're at a school and it's totally radical!

    I'm all in for this. It's great to do something..... different (although I hesitate to say 'different' as a word to do it justice) once in a while. One thing I wanna ask about the setting, if anyone says 'future' to me, I immediately start thinking 'sci-fi'. What's the kind of tech level we're looking at here?

    I may look like an idiot, I may sound like an idiot, but don't let that fool you; I really am an idiot.

    @Pi Face; Exactly. The Drive is something that your character will be built around. It's not something easily summarized, but it'll be the core of your character. It's a sort of mutation that makes you able to do impossible things.

    @Plumbum; It's high-level tech, unique and adapted for survival in the Skyline world. You'll be using a lot of light and energy based tech.

    @Stellar Gale; I don't know how to explain it much better than has already been said. If I feel like you'd be a good addition to the RP, you'll be accepted. Once accepted, I'll begin working with you privately to develop your character, one on one.
