No one has set foot on Earth in centuries -- until now.
Ever since a devastating nuclear war, humanity has lived on spaceships far above Earth's radioactive surface. Now, one hundred juvenile delinquents -- considered expendable by society -- are being sent on a dangerous mission: to recolonize the planet. It could be their second chance at life...or it could be a suicide mission.
An excerpt from one of the 100's journal
I was born in space. I've never felt the sun on my face or breathed real air or floated in the water. None of us have. For three generations, The Ark has kept what's left of the human race alive, but now our home is dying, and we are the last hope of mankind. One hundred prisoners sent on a desperate mission to the Ground Each of us is here because we broke the Law. On the Ground, there is no Law. All we have to do is survive. But we will be tested: by the Earth, by the secrets it hides, and most of all, by each other.
The Way of the Ark
The Ark is the spaceship home to the only humans left alive. During the nuclear war the Arc was sent up in an attempt to save the human race. It was home to 2000 citizens and was only designed to survive for 100 years in space. Now 300 years later the Arc is dying. Chancellor Adam took the matter into his own hands deciding to finally find out of Earth is habitable once again for the human race. After being up in space for so long many things are different. People don't read books as they are a rare commodity and treasured under lock and guard. Everyone is in rags or hand maid clothes as there is no new ones being produced.
No godmodding, powerplaying, metagaming, ect. Basic rule and such.
You are allowed to control NPC's to a certain level. We would prefer if you kept this to a minimum such as having someone give you a dirty look. Mods, and myself of course, have the authority to control NPC's to a greater level.
Try to be original, no one likes a million Kens and Barbies
