    Hot-Blooded ~ War for Dystopia (OOC)


    In the year 2022, a cataclysmic event known as the Skyfall occurred, a great asteroid fell from the sky and impacted the Earth.

    Tens of Millions died in the impact, many more died in the aftermath, for the space-borne object brought with it a strange and unknown substance scientists began to call Pyre, due to its effects upon those infected with the now dubbed 'Pyre Syndrome', which elevated the temperature of the body to a dangerously high state, broiling the body from the inside out, either expiring shortly after, or, in some cases 'popping' explosively.

    Those inflicted acted erratically, the fever affecting their brain chemistry, madness was rampant, others desperately fled into the sea or the frozen poles to try and cool their burning bodies.

    The disease spread rapidly, and civilization buckled under the weight, high density countries, such as India, China and Japan were ravaged, refugees fleeing to safer, larger bastions, carrying the flame with them, burning the first world to cinders.

    People became closed off, isolated, spreading apart in hopes that the 'fire' would not spread, wild theories spread, anyone acting irrationally or out of fear was accused of hiding the syndrome, paranoia was rampant and society began to slowly collapse.

    However, in the year 2035, a group of scientists called SOLITUDE, based out of an isolated northern bunker managed to come forth with a creation that would be both impartial and immune to the disease that ravaged biology.

    It was called HECATE, an immense supercomputer that had spent the last ten years of its creation, since it had first been able to compute, slowly working on a way to combat the syndrome with samples taken from fleeing afflicted.

    Cold temperatures, it deduced, were a valid method, as well as stoicism and a collection of emotion suppressing drugs, which, upon administration to a willing subject, allowed for remission to a normal lifestyle.

    Uncounted refugees flocked to HECATE's center of power, and the city of Asphodel was erected around the base of the superstructure, a beacon of hope in the north. People immersing themselves in a calm, passionless existence in exchange for safety from the disease that had so ravaged the land.

    But though the Pyre had been muffled, buried beneath the snow and cold, the flame still burned.

    'Wildfires' appeared, a form of madness born from suppressed emotion and long-term Pyre exposure, powerful, inhuman creatures with terrible power that rampaged through the uncounted districts, they were suppressed with the aid of HECATE's paramilitary group known as Firebreak, which was equipped with experimental technology developed from researching the meteor far to the south.

    Emotions became viewed as dangerous to the society, nonconformity to HECATE's decrees were unlawful, logic and reason governed in a bloodless Asphodel, viciously suppressing dissent in exchange for peace.

    However, recently there have been reports of a mutation in those afflicted, the very young inflicted, born or scarcely a few years old when the outbreak occurred began showing mysterious powers, similar to those exhibited by Wildfires. Firebreak, under orders from HECATE, began detaining them, dragging them away from their loved ones with cold efficiency.

    But you cannot stamp out a fire that has been burning for years so easily.

    For once it has shown itself, no matter what, a spark will spread and grow.

    You are one of them, one of the so-called Prometheans or 'Hotblooded', mysterious powers burn within you, rising and cresting with the strength of your passion. Society is your enemy, the bloodless acolytes of Firebreak and the oppressive SOLITUDE will capture you if you show any evidence of your power.

    However, fire spreads, and so long as you can gather like-minded individuals to your banner, the flames will spread and grow, your numbers will increase, and you will be able to cast down this cold, inhuman dystopia and raise your own banner for a future.

    Welcome to this world, it is cold, hard and without mercy.

    Only you can light it up.

    Ready?

    Hi.

    I'm back on my bullshit, because i was back looking at Dark Conquerer and went 'hm, we should do this again'

    so i decided to do it again

    but in the fashion of my people

    also lots of fire references because I am trying to have a Theme

    So, in any case, I worked hard this time!

    anyway here's a rulebook for you

    feel free to ask any questions if my energy drink fueled ramblings don't make things very clear!

    In other news, now that some interest has been shown in my latest venture, I'll ear-mark a deadline for sheets down as, hm...

    Let's go with two weeks, the 25th of December.

    I'll be willing to extend if people reach out.

    Well it looks like the Equilibrium meets Canadian Fire Force RP has arrived. I guess it is time to try to figure out how to create a Grammaton Cleric and see if I can translate Gun-Kata into a power or if it might just qualify as a major perk.

    Yes, custom perks. I could prop up a quick little sheet though, if people are looking for some guidance.

    An example sheet showing what you are looking for might be nice.

    I'll probably need an extension since I'm still in Deep Shit with barely any time for myself.

    Wait, I’ve done a build similar to this. Recycling time!
