Hello,and welcome to,The Dark Island. First things first,you need proper grammar and spelling in order to play in this RP. There are two things you must do before joining this RP. One,read the rules,and Two read the back story below. Then fill out the application. I hope you join and have fun.
This RP takes place in a world that is constantly being overrun,with natural disasters. Twenty years ago,a meteor hit this world. The meteor hit the top of the world,driving itself to the core. This caused natural disasters to go off in an endless cycle,leaving the world constantly overrun with disasters. The Dark Island is on the top of the world,where the meteor hit. It left a huge hole in the island leaving a place for lava to flow freely out of. It is the most deadly and natural disaster ridden island in the whole world. This is where we begin in our RP. Due,to the current events,the world has made underground tunnels and building. Keep in mind this world is affected my earthquakes! The tunnels and buildings sometimes collapse. In the beginning of this RP,we all start off in one of the underground building. But,the "watchers" see over everything to make sure no one does anything bad. But,they abuse there powers often and starve people and sometimes even kill them. So,we are a group of people who are trying to escape and leave the building. If you do, get to the underground tunnels,they are overrun with monsters and hostile animals. The tunnels are extremely large and are at least a mile wide and high. At the end of each tunnel there is an elevator that brings you to the surface. There are buildings on the surface but they are more prone to disaster than the underground ones. For instance,a sudden tar cloud may come and possibly suffocate everyone outside,or maybe inside. There are cars,trains,space shuttles,and guns in this Role-Play. But,they are VERY rare and hard to find. If you did find one,it would give you a huge advantage. This is why they are rare. The main object of this Role-Play is to survive and explore.
The main race is human. But,if you want to make another race,you need to come up with a reasonable explanation of why you were raised in the vault or how you got there.
Equipment:(What you carry around in the underground building.)

Jonah always hung around with the watcher as he taught him about the security and how to run the bunker. One day when Jonah was going to meet the watcher in his quarters,he overheard him screaming at a man over the intercom and being very "harsh."

[Oh, you flatter me too much. Yes, if offered I will accept it, though I fear I have less and less free time lately. I will get around to that application later from my computer, right now I am just on a mobile device for short posts.]
((Ok,sorry,had to go somewhere. Ok,so,they have invented,technology,such as automatic doors,radio's, etc. But most of it was destroyed in the initial collision,when the meteor hit. But,there are no guns. Vehicle wise,trains,modern day space shuttles,all exist,but no cars. Medical cures,quarantine etc. They also have the ability to keep out smoke,smog etc. out of selected building. So,I guess no luxury's,cars,guns,or quick transportations. Does it make sense now?))
(( No, not really. Guns and cars wouldn't cease to exist after a meteor strike ( Unless it's a giant meteor that destroyes the whole planet, which in this case, it isn't. ). You can say guns are rare, because they weren't allowed on the island bbefore the meteor in the first place and that most cars are destroyed, and the one's that aren't are out of fuel. So basically, they should still exist, just make weapons, ammo, and fuel extremely rare. ))
((Alright,I will do that. I was just saying that so that we would have more fun RPing. I mean,it would suck if you just got in a car and rode to a place in one hour. That would lose a lot of dialog,and character development. But,yes,I will just make it really rare to find. Hope you all join!
((I know, but then, you find a pistol with three bullets. You fell a zombie with those three bullets. Now the gun is useless. And a car, You drive from point A, to B, to C and back again. Now you're out of Gas. Now the car is useless. We would need solutions to this, Gas stations? Maybe, but one would expect others would've taken the Gas already. And what of bullets? When you find the correct bullets, which would usually be near more guns, then the guns wouldn't be rare anymore.))
Rollback Post to RevisionRollBack
"For to win one hundred victories in one hundred battles is not the acme of skill. To subdue the enemy without fighting is the acme of skill."
(( That can easily change as the story progresses. You guys may find an underground military bunker filled with weapons an ammunition, same with fuel. Maybe an old military base with a lot of stored fuel, ect. But at first, everything is scarce. It adds to the survival aspect. You have to use your resourses wisely. ))
