    Hey, it's up! Yay! ^_^

    Okies, hello people, I'm sure you may be scratching your heads at what this is all about, but rest assured, answers are coming. :D

    Okay, first a brief history, so you all know generally what's going on. Then we can get more specific about what it all means. ^_^

    The place is Earth. The time, the future. 2475 to be more specific. But the story begins even before then. 100 years before then, to be precise. 2375, and Earth's scientists have made amazing advances. Clean, renewable energy is no longer a thing of the past. Metals have gotten stronger, and computers better. It was also around this time that scientists had almost proved the existence of other dimensions. They had pinpointed what they believed was another world, and were about to open a door between this dimension and the other. However, this was the first mistake.

    After opening a doorway successfully, the scientists discovered a world already inhabited by a race of vicious, malformed humanoids, almost demonic in their creation. It was this reason that led us to name their varied race the first true Demons. And they weren't friendly. Quickly spilling out into our world, they tried to claim it as their own, resulting in small skirmishes at first. But as the demons got bolder, and more determined, it quickly escalated into a full scale war.

    Lasting many years, the war was brutal, and the vast majority of cities all over the world were destroyed, as well as the Earth itself being scarred and desolated. The demons were not as advanced as the humans, but they had an advantage, in their ability to proficiently use magic. Many years into the war however, the accident occurred which sealed the fate of humanity, and indeed the whole planet. Early on in the war, the humans had begun using machines to help fight the demons and destroy them. But soon, it got out of hand, and after developing the A.I. too far, the machines turned against the very humans that created them. But they also continued fighting the demons.

    And thus, the war continued, three different sides fighting for control of what was left of the planet. But suddenly, 43 years ago, it all stopped. The remaining humans have retreated to a large city known as Home, where they live protected inside their shield. The machines retreated to their own territory, where they have set up factories for many different things, including growing the numbers of their own race. And meanwhile, the demons have spread themselves all over the world, living in destroyed cities, mountains... wherever they can find a suitable shelter.

    And that's Earth as it is now.

    Now, forgive me for the double post, but a few things I feel I should get out of the way before too much trouble arises...

    Race descriptions!!!!! :p

    Please note, these are only general things, so you know best what race you may wish to be. :D

    Demons: Their race advantage is magic. Out of all the races the demons have access to the most spells, and are most proficient with their magical abilities. However, they are not as technologically advanced as the other races, and thus resort to cruder or more primitive weapons. They are also the most disorganised, with no real form of government or grouping other than, "i'm bigger, listen to me!"

    Machines: Vastly intelligent, the machines are the most technologically advanced, with weapons galore, and bodily implants as well. Coming in all shapes and basically all sizes, they are all ruled, and connected, by the giant supercomputer, ALEX which resides at the heart of their city.

    Humans: A mixture of both machines and robots, the humans have some very decent technology at their disposal, as well as the ability to utilise magic, though neither of us are near the level of their enemies. Humans can also obtain some implants, though NOWHERE near the degree of the machines...usually only one implant, which slightly enhances a skill. Their main advantage is force of numbers. The only humans alive are all in the giant city called Home, safely behind their shield which is generated by technology not even the machines can figure out easily. Also, as well as the usual soldiers and other jobs, recently a new job has risen among the humans, that of the Hunter. A hunter is basically a bounty hunter, specialising in demons and machines.

    Okies, just some brief info for you all, and remember it's not all set in stone. If you want a demon with decent technology, just come up with a good reason as to how he got it, and balance him out. But other than all that stuff, this is a kingdom. Go wild anywhere that takes your fancy! The scarred futuristic Earth is your oyster! ^_^ Just remember, the three sides are still at war, whether it's active or not.

    ...
    ...

    ok...so its partly stolen...but I don't care...it totally suits the PRG

    also...I seen Lil has jaxx0r3d Aya from Tenjou Tenge, and Ros has jaxx0r3d D from vampire Hunter D if I'm not mistaken...or that might just be coincidence

    anyway, wtf...this rpg has potential...I want to join it early :p

    LOL, I assure you Met, any links between my D and Vampire Hunter D are purely coincidental....I've had this guy since WAY back when. :p

    Your characters are both approved Sylavanas and Met, although Met, I'm assuming your guy isn't all powerful and there are some drawbacks to his gear to balance him out, right? You don't have to make the known just yet, just confirm he is a balanced char, for my sake. ^_^ Assume I'm a stupid admin kinda guy and humour me. :p

    Oh, and Sylavanas brought this to my attention, just so anyone who may wish to use a demon char now or in the future knows, the magic is pretty much anything you've seen as magic before. Think D&D style stuff, basically. :D

    Well Ros...so far his gear is that of a ranged assassin...and hence has very few flaws for what he does.

    I don't know wha else flaws I can make, but I'll see what I can do.

    maybe make him bad at close quarters combat, so if something gets close he's got a tough time fighting it
