Welcome To New Genesis (Futuristic Urban Fantasy)
This is an urban fantasy game focusing on humans, mythological creatures and other various beings living in the city of New Genesis. Futuristic, rather than contemporary, this game takes place in the year 4022. While it does take place on a planet called Earth, it's not the Earth you know- there are plenty of differences, whether it be the people or the timeline.

TL;DR? Skip to the bottom and read the summary!

Game Introduction:
Welcome to New Genesis- a high tech city built on the blood, sweat and tears of man and god alike. It is a city of arcane and technological wonders, built as a peaceful oasis in a war torn world. The world outside New Genesis is a wasteland- difficult to live off of and even more difficult to survive in.

While humanity wars with the gods out in the dark, you have been drawn to a light, to a beacon... a second chance at life. You have been drawn to a city, an oasis in that war torn wasteland, and something you haven't felt in a long time sparks deep down in your chest. Hope.

If you're lucky, you'll be granted a new life in the city, where the Guard has offered residents protection from the outside world, from the war and strife. From the whirlwind of chaos that has destroyed the place you once called home.

If you are granted asylum, refuge from a war that would inevitably lead to your death outside the city's walls, what will you do with your second chance?

Will you start over, and try to be a better person? Will you continue on as you always have? Will you become a contender in the Arena that you've heard so much about, fighting to earn the cash you need to get by?

And if your request for asylum is denied, what will you do then? Will you attempt to sneak into the city and live under the radar? How will you survive?

It's all up to you.

Are you an alien visiting this war torn planet because, despite the chaos, it's better than returning home? Are you a veteran of the war, seeking a peaceful retirement? Are you an unknowing citizen of another dimension, who was dragged kicking and screaming through a rift, ending up stuck with no way to get home?

It doesn't matter who you were or where you came from. Everyone gets a fresh start in New Genesis.


Summary

This game takes place in the year 4022, in the futuristic city of New Genesis. While there is a war waging between technologically advanced humans and monstrosities from various mythologies in the background, the city seems to be the only peaceful and safe place left in that wretched wasteland of a world that was once vibrant and beautiful.

People fleeing the war find themselves drawn, in some way or another, to the city's walls, where they may apply for sanctuary. Maybe they're drawn by magic, or perhaps its simple interest or intellect that sends them in its direction. No one has been able to give a solid answer to that question.

Create a character, explore the city, make friends or enemies, thrive or wither. Follow plot lines, or strike out on your own. It's all up to you to decide how you live your life in New Genesis.

This game, while it certainly has its own flare and allure, as well as its own story arcs, is inspired by and has elements of various fictional universes such as Persons of Interest, Altered Carbon, The Good Place and several others. We're looking for a strong cast of writers, and we'd love to discuss your ideas regarding character concepts and plot lines. Feel free to contact us in-game via a request access thread, if you have any questions!

DISCLAIMER: This is a free-form game, meaning that there will be no dice rolling or general system that the players have to adhere to. The GM(s) may roll dice behind the scenes, from time to time, to determine the outcome of a certain event, but that will not be something the players have to participate in. Likewise, there will be an overarching pre-made plot, but the majority of the game will be player led. I, and any other GM(s) that may join in the future, will not lead your character by the nose. If you're looking for a game that is heavily GM centric, this is not the game for you. That being said, I will be writing as some NPC's that are important to the plot here and there and will be offering plot hooks, but you will need to be able to write your own story and interact with the other characters on your own for the most part. Do not expect to rely on the GM(s) for everything, we have lives as well and our time is limited, as is the case with most of you.

Welcome To New Genesis (Futuristic Urban Fantasy)

Casting Call!!!


These requests are all put forth by myself and any current or future Co-GM's that may join the game, in hopes of diversifying the cast.

1. Fighters- we currently have a few but could use some more. There is an Arena in game, where a Bot Fighting League exists. Competitors are able to control bots from a console (much like a first person shooter), or they are able to physically pilot a set of power armor (think Iron Man's suit for reference) to earn Credits (money) in League Matches. What your character is and what they do outside of the Arena is up to you. For info on the Arena and how it works, view the bio page: link to another game

2. Shop / General Store owner. We would like for someone to fill the role of a general store owner, that sells basic supplies. It may sell magical items as well as mundane and tech. It just depends on your preferences. The shop will not need to be manned 24/7, you are more than welcome to have employees that watch things while your character is away.

3. A Private Investigator. While a civilian P.I. would have to be careful, when considering the laws of the city, I'm happy to consider a concept. The P.I. would likely need to work fairly well with the City Guard and have connections / informants throughout the city.

4. Anything else you can think of. We've put a lot of work into making sure that creative freedom is extremely prevalent in this game. We'd love to see some off the wall ideas! I would recommend discussing these ideas in an Access Thread, to make sure they are green lit, before writing up an entire RTJ, however.

If you wish to fill one of these specified roles (numbers 1, 2 or 3), please say as much in a request access thread. If a position is already filled, or if we've reached our cap on a certain type of character, I will let you know, before you fill out an rtj. So, ask before filling out an application! I don't like having to reject concepts. If you don't ask first, it's your own fault.
