+=== Intro === +
Welcome to Atlantis 2, the lost world reborn, an underwater centre built in the middle of the Loch Ness to allow people to go down into the depths of the loch in search of the legendary water.
To celebrate the dawn of the new year, the DT staff and testers were invited by a company named Masque Corp. to visit it just after work was completed. However, just like the real Atlantis, catastrophe struck and the section they were in plummeted down deep underwater with no staff left inside,
The situation is desperate, and emotions are running high. The centre's prepared enough for this, it's been designed to work underwater - all openings have been sealed and there's enough oxygen for around a weeks survival, and there's the shopping centre around Aqua Regia's centre where food and various other supplies can be found, but time is still passing and emotions are starting to run high. Meanwhile, the centre keeps falling deeper, and the crushing pressure may start to take it's toll on the limited oxygen supply.
This is an RP for characterization - characterization is the most extreme of situations, pushing the limit of the RP's Web-14 rating to the limit.
What would your character do when they only have seven days to live? When you're stuck with a bunch of strangers who you barely know (your memories of each other and your partners were lost when you returned from the Digiworld)? Would you try and contact your family, make friends... or even go as far as to try and find love? Will some of you even manage to find out why this happened, and just what Masque Corp. are up to?
Let's see, shall we?
RP's like this, set in the Virtuality world, are what make DT the type of story it is - cyberpunk/fantasy, fantasy worlds mixed with futeristic technology. This RP focuses on the former - futeristic technology going wrong. Enjoy it. +=== FAQs === +
(Edited to fit this RP. Noloyolo isn't a real member here.)
[02:01] noloyolo: So we are all in a building?
[02:02] DTNeko: Yeah, a building plummeting down into the sea.
[02:02] DTNeko: It was built underwater, it's like a futuristic shopping centre crossed with a posh hotel.
[02:02] noloyolo: So we all don't know eachother
[02:03] noloyolo: So we all ended up in this building?
[02:03] DTNeko: Our memories were mixed up from coming out of Virtuality. We all know it each, but not personally - we recognize each other, but don't remember why.
[02:03] DTNeko: We're friends, but we kinda don't know... why we're friends. Everything we've been through is just kind of vague.
[18:41] noloyolo: don't we all forget eachother
[18:41] noloyolo: like the people we've met in the virtuality?
[18:41] DTNeko: Nah, your memories are messed up, but you still can like have flashbacks and that.
[18:42] DTNeko: You can't remember how it ended and all that, but you might vaguely recognize each others faces, have flashbacks of meetings, that sorta stuff.
[18:42] DTNeko: It's kinda like being drunk, everything's a bit blurry.
[18:42] DTNeko: Except you shouldn't go falling over unless you're fainting.
Expanding on that, memories in 'Under Pressue' are directly proportionate to relations in the RP - for instance, Terra wouldn't remember Triss, because in the main RP she's never met her. However, if she did meet up with Triss and something decently important happened, in this RP she would start to remember bits about her. +=== News + Updates ===+
None so far!
Please note the plot is kinda sucky right now. I'mma working on adapting it to DT. +=== Terra's RP (Starting Point) ===+
((I'm controlling Erik and Terra only. Muvo and Blondie will only join in if there's demand for them ro something. ^^;; ))
"Aqua Regia..." Erik whispered, stepping through the silent corridors, leather shoes clopping on the polished floors. "Queen of acids. And that's what they're doing to this water - can you image how much pollution this place must be causing to the seas?"
"This place runs off hydro power." Terra murmured, glancing with interest out the windows. "None."
She paused, brushing a hand along the window, and pressing the glass to see if it bent.I always used to dream about drowning...
She hated travelling in boats - or, more specifically, she hated been reminded she was in water. Set her on a ferry to the Western Isles, and she coped fine, in fact she had pretty steady sealegs. What she couldn't stand was standing on deck and leaning over, knowing what would happen if she fell in, or that moment in a car when you have to drive onto the lower deck, and all that's keepnig you from falling in is some flimsy sheet of metal. She couldn't stand it because it made her think of death.
"Hey, c'mon, we're falling behind the other kids." Erik said, frowning as she paused.
Terra didn't answer. She couldn't find a clever way to say how she felt right now. If he was sticking around, she wanted to keep him away from them. She didn't want him following everywhere - in fact, she didn't want him here at all. He was embarrassing, creepy, all of that and so much more. But if they fell behind, and she ended up lost somewhere with him...
She nodded, following at a brisk pace and glaring at the sliding doors, daring them to slam on her.
As they caught up behind the group, one of the doors nearly did - closing a fraction to fast. Terra turned to yell blue murder at it when...
The sirens went off, red lights flashing above every door as the station went into lock-down.
Erik froze, dashing to a window and pushing roughly past a few of the brats they'd been forced to travel with.
"Crap..." he said, frowning. "They're closing the exit doors. We're slipping off the supports!"
"We're wat?" Terra said, raising an eyebrow.
"I don't know... just see for yoruself, will you!"
Nodding, Terra stepped beside him, staring out the window. Sure enough, lights had burst into life all across the station, access ramps were being pulled away and the Aqua Regia
branch of the centre was falling deeper into the water. She couldn't see a single staff member.
As the connecting tunnels were pulled down, all the windows shattered inward, water rushing through all the upper floors. Metal screaming as it scraped against the side of the loch and was torn off the supports, the section plunged downwards into the ocean. Now you guys join in! Feel free to start your posts roughly when the sirens go off.
Remember, this is serious stuff - no dragons, no weapons, going for some twisted kinda realism here. Have fun!
This is a hard RP for a lot of folks to get into, but try your best. If you have any questions, just ask meh. ^_~
