Adult Theme

This game has an adult theme, for violence and sexual content. In addition to consentual role play you will at some point loose to an npc and trigger a defeat message. Which is a typically a length auto-generated paragraph of how the attacker sexually assaulted and or killed you. These can result in progamatic pregency if you have female parts. There are merits to help avoid this but eventually you will probley see this happen to you or a party member. Additionally some quests have sexual content in their text.


Background (Short Form)

A nanite virus has over run the world. The result is a wide and wild varity of mutations, there are furries, living robots, monsters, and mythicals of nearly all shapes and sizes. Most people are driven mad by the virus, with a need to either procreate with anyone and everyone. While others act on some instinct related to their mutation. You are one of the sane people helping control the less sane people and put the world back together.

You will start off human at charcter creation, but npc's infect you in battle. Also players can exchange infections by vials or consental mating acts. (Yes theres a FUCK command for that) Mutations are not completed by a single infect, and players commonly have partial mutations of several types.


Merits

Merits mostly are used to determine how the mutations will affect your appearance. You get 20 points free at the start. You can buy up to a total of 50 merit points. In game they a cost of 10 x Point Value. There are also some merits to give in game advantages, however the advantagaes are often small.

Determining things like how big you cock will be, or many breasts you can have seem silly, until your infected by things like the Ashen Monarch (10 breasts total) or the Happy Hugely Hung Hyper Horse, (50 inch long cock). Also consider the side affects of having and not having a merit. Being infection immune or resistant might cut out a large part of the game for you. Having a vagina means the possiblity of pregency. Lastly, having more than 20 inches of breast or cock is useful only for showing off, while number will give you bonuses to some powers.


Writing a Description

The game gives you an automatic description that includes your skin, arms, legs, torso, breasts, penis, vagina. If you took 'looks human' merit, you will get a 'They look surpisely human' line in place of the all but the sexual body parts. You should include things like hair, eyes, clothing(Some go nude), distingushing features. Avoid background details, emotions, things we couldn't know by looking at you but not talking too you.


Writing a Background

Where were you before?

In the choas of the outbreak people came from all over looking to get away from the ones that didnt keep their sanity. Some don't remember where they came from as a result of the infections affects on even a sane brain. Others come from a wide variety of backgrounds, all three factions arn't picky about who they hire as new agents. Only requirement is (some) sanity.

How did you get there?

Currently there are two cities, and three starting factions. You some how managed to end up one of the sane people instead of the horny crazy people. How did you manage to do that? Zeyhpr and RSX help people who survive initial infection through drugs, prometheans are said to do it through shear will of mind.

Starting Factions

RSX

RSX tolerates mutations, but prefers humans, in terms of role play and theme mutations will always be low level works. They are a goverment organization in a era where government is falling apart. They are trying to help put the world back together. And cure all those crazy sex crazed furries, even if they dont want to be cured.

Zypher

Considered to be the cause of the nanite plague by many, they are your typical giant evil mega corp. They employee and exploit equally regarless of furry, metal hide, or plain old humaness. All under the guise of putting the world back together, so sayth their employee handbook.

Prometheans

They want people to embrace their mutations but not in the crazy insane way. They have very liberial views on family, sexual activities, and don't want to cure people of their mutations. They do want to help the nutty ones think normally again and embrace their new bodies.


Starting Locations

  • RSX is in located in Woodfield, Washingtion State, USA. Mythical and humanoid mutations.
  • Zypher is located in fairfield, California, USA. Furries in the streets, but a wider varity elsewhere.
  • Prometheans are located in fairfield also.


Theme points

  • Your faction probley saved you from the infection in some way. Drugs to keep you sane? Food, clothing, a bed, and guns to fend off the crazies? These are things that you probley got from your faction.
  • Mutations of all shapes and sizes are common, but you may or may not consider them normal. After all you were probley a human before it all went furry.
  • Getting maul, raped, or in some cases both on the streets is also common. You may or may not be happy about that, but it happens, generally several times a day to the weak.
  • Their are people looking for a cure. Are you happy about it? Prometheans don't want to be cured. Maybe you like looking like a cosplay convention attendee? Maybe you can't wait to be human again.
  • Fucking your way out of a fight is also normal. Taking one for the team, often means getting down on all fours and waiting for your attacker to finish, if thats wait it takes to save your friends. Getting mutated from it is par for the course. Maybe your into that?
  • Supplies are the one thing thats in short supply. You will probley get a lot of quests, and missions to help get more supplies. Even the mega corps are shopping at the thrift store, but their version of shopping is sending to defeat the colie herms. One gun or one screw at a time.
  • The streets of your city are bad, but other places are far worse. Example is Los Vagus, where the infection went wild and reduced the cities population to goo. Stories of horrible nightmare-ish secenarios are probley being passed around in your factions lobby.


Professions and Roles

Professions

Professions are non-combat abilities, some have automated uses related to crafting, salvaging, etc. Each profession gives you skills, these stack up to three times. The first to are free, then they cost xp to buy. You can buy up to six professions unless you take the merit for a seventh.

Roles

Roles are combat abilities, their grants skills that stack up to three times. You can activate a role every eight levels, but you can buy a new one every four levels.

Pregency

If you have female parts, theres a good chance you will eventually get pregent. Some merits prevent either pregancy, or female parts. If you get pregant, you will have a haste debuff until the child is born. Once is it is born, you get a child object that you can summon to aid in battle. Some merits and roles assist with summoning childern.

Vials

You need a nanite collector to get vials, only the mako one will give infection vials. Infection vials need to be no greater than five levels above you to use. Builder nanties are given by all collectors, and they are used for crafting. See the crafting guide for details.
