PostSubject: Matthew 5:5 (Post-Apocalyptic Scenario) Discussion and Sign-Ups [RP RESURRECTED]   Mon Nov 10, 2014 4:40 pm

Last night, everything was as it always was. Mundane, humdrum, BORING. You go to sleep hoping fervently for something different to happen tomorrow. Your eyes close and you dream of a blank emptiness, with a strange, high-pitched humming sound in the back of your skull.

You awaken to an empty world.

Car horns, motorcycle engines, random human noise - all of them silent. Every radio station you have turned to seems to have become static, every TV channel is showing the emergency broadcast signal. You dress, leave your house, and go to the nearest public thoroughfare, sure that there will be people there.

There is not a soul in sight, except for the dogs and cats that wander the street.

Returning to your house, you check the radio and TV stations again. Scanning the signals in the vain hope that you may find a broadcast, you stumble upon an eerie message, delivered by a voice that does not quite sound human.

"-was no way we could co-exist, and so we did what we must. Our scanners show that, sadly, we are successful. With the complete eradication of the species known as Homo sapiens sapiens, we will now assume stewardship of the planet known locally as Earth. However, our scanners also show some sentient life still remains on Earth. Whoever you are, though our thought-rays cannot reach you, please know that we will come in peace, and that what we did, we did for the greater good. Please understand. We do not wish to harm you, and we are sorry for your loss. Do not resist. We will be coming soon. Until then, our agents on Earth will be watching.

We are the Meek. For eons we have observed as humankind evolved, conquered, and then desecrated and defiled the paradise that is the third planet from Sol. We tried, so many times, to reach out and make contact, but the human brain is uniquely shielded from our mental abilities. We have seen, however, how mankind reacts to that which they cannot understand, and when we saw that mankind had unlocked the power of the stars for war, we realized that there was no way we could co-exist, and so we did what we must. Our scanners show that-"

The radio transmission is cut off, courtesy of you hurling the device at a nearby wall and breaking it. Yesterday's boring day suddenly seems like something to be desired right about now.

For a long while now, you have always suspected that there was something not fully human about you. You did, after all, have an ability that most normal human beings do not, although you kept this ability hidden and did not practice it out of shame (since it is actually pretty silly). Apparently, this was enough to fool the scanners of the Meek, whatever the hell they are, into thinking you are not human. You don't know whether you should feel relieved or angry.

What you do know is that the Meek are coming soon, their "agents" are observing you, and that there are others like you.

Will you seek out those like you to attempt to subvert the Meek from taking over the Earth? Or will you be content to accept the arrival of your new alien overlords?

The decision is yours.

Name: Katerina (Rin)
Age: 19
Sex: F
Personality: TSUNTSUN
Occupation: College Student (Creative Writing)

Skillset: Knows basic home skills like sewing and cooking. Aside from english, she speaks basic german and a little russian. Knows how to ride the bicycle.

Ability: She has a tiny glass-like object fixed on the center of her chest, which she can extend up to 2cm on will. However, it simultaneously extends inward and if it exceeds 2cm it pokes her heart and inflicts pain. It also extends whenever she feels intense happiness and a handful of other fun emotions, hence her tendency to suppress positive feelings. Looks like a mini paizuri when fully activated while wearing clothes. Useful in approximately zero situations. Will henceforth be referred to as Suicide Shard / Fragment of Self-Pain / Oppai Boner / anything similar.

Location: Home

Bio: Since childhood, Katerina has been average in her studies (except English) and in most other aspects of life. She has never experienced love (and probably never will) because of her condition, despite having a pretty face and nice figure. She's also fiercely antisocial and quite cynical. She likes reading mystery and detective novels, as they are one of the few excitements that don't trigger her Suicide Shard. She is currently studying Creative Writing, and yes, even now after the apocalypse continues writing her papers.

pic coming soon, if i ever find a nice cute tsun one

Name: Dominique ("Q" or sometimes "Kyun" as the adults call her)
Age: 8 ½
Sex: F
Personality: Adorable
Occupation: Home-schooled student/self-proclaimed scientist
Skillset:

    Major skills

    • Keen observation skills. She always carries with her a laboratory-grade magnifying glass (6X magnifying power convex lens, ultra-high chromium stainless steel frame and handle, genuine leather grips). She doesn't understand these specs but she likes to brag about them anyway.
    • Nocturnal courage [aura]. She is not afraid of the dark. On a completely unrelated note, she has a mini heavy-duty flashlight on her person at all times. She can also chase away your fear of the dark (or anything for that matter) because she's adorable like that.

    Minor skills

    • Origami folding. Her grandfather usually compliments her on this. She can also make her own cute designs like pig faces, cat faces, and puppy faces.
    • Good in maths. She can count up to 100 without making a single mistake.

Ability: Cloud Manipulation. She can control the clouds, but only if she thinks they look like something and someone agrees. With this, she can basically make it sunny or cloudy. But because of the conditional nature of her weird ability, she (sadly) can't make the rain "go away."

Location: Grandfather's vacation house by the mountains

Bio: (I'll write this later. Ugh, sleepy)

Name: Gorbag Hotahos ("Gorbs" for short)
Age: 38
Sex: M
Personality: Horny
Occupation: Muscular NEET

Major Skills:

  • Relatively Heavy Weight Lifting - After years of unhealthy living in his grandmother's basement, Gorbs decided to lift weights for fitness. He doesn't have the cash to buy weight-lifting equipment, so he made his own dumbbells and barbells using concrete, PVC pipes and empty Pringles™ cans. He doesn't actually know how much they weigh, but it's probably more than his office chair... or a box of porn mags. He describes them online as "fucking heavy, bruh". He can semi-accurately discern the relative weights of any two objects he lifts. Doesn't need to hold them both at once. Amazing huh? What? You can do it too? Absurd!
  • Internets - Gorbs is a master of the interwebz, able to infiltrate websites for trolling and able to search images of obscure fetishes from any available online source. Of course, expertise extends to less useful things like hacking and programming. Very useful (?) before the apocalypse. Now, not so much.


Minor Skills:

  • One Five One - Memorized data of the first 151 Pokémon. Knows all about them by heart. He believes that Pokémon are real animals, so somehow he gained vast knowledge of fauna while trying to prove their existence.
  • Calloused Hands - Years of hard handwork gave Gorbs' hands a natural resistance to friction damage and great dexterity when handling elongated objects.
  • Troll Under Bridge - Gorbs is an expert at being annoying. He can effectively annoy anyone who annoys him.


Ability:
Virgin Unleashed - 38 years with only seven instances of non-family female contact honed Gorbs' senses to detect feminine pheromones up to a mile away. This includes normal ladies, infant girls, dead women, female flowering plants, female animals, female computer ports, feminist men and feminine wash. In fact, he cannot tell the difference between them. He also gains an erection whenever he senses something. He can activate this power when "needed", but it also auto-activates when he is horny.

Location: Grandma's basement. Gorbs calls this his "Den of Mischievous Chivalry" or something.

Bio: <to be written>

Name: Jefferson "Ferds" Chua
Age: 29
Sex: Male
Personality: Chill
Occupation: Call Center Agent
Skillset:
Major Skill 1: Refined Speaking and Listening Skills - As a Call Center Agent, Ferds has excellent communication skills and can even call up a passable imitation of an American accent.

Major Skill 2: Distorted Circadian Rhythm/Automatic REM Sleep - As a Call Center Agent, Ferds has effectively destroyed his body's internal clock, and thus can fall asleep at any time of day. When he does, he automatically skips straight to REM sleep, but will sleep like the dead for a minimum of 30 minutes and a maximum of 12 hours.

Minor Skill 1: Driving - Ferds has a driver's license and can drive a motorcycle and a car. Unfortunately, he owns neither one.

Minor Skill 2: Bachelor's Aptitude - As a single man in his late 20s living on his own, Ferds has a host of skills that every bachelor needs to know: cooking breakfast, ironing clothes, mixing drinks, managing money, and dealing with the soul-crushing loneliness of waking up each morning to a cold bed and an even colder existence!

Minor Skill 3: Kung Fu - Ferds knows Kung Fu! He's a black belt! Well, he would be if he had like, any formal training and all. But he's watched a lot of Kung Fu movies! He's even got the complete Bruce Lee movies collection! That's a lot, isn't it? He totally knows how to punch and kick, and he bets if some sensei ever measured his skills he'd be like "wow, you real good, grasshopper, here is black belt!".

Silly Power/Ability: Wind Whistler - Ferds can summon a small breeze by whistling. Handy when it's humid or when the power's out and the fan doesn't work.

Location: Overpriced studio apartment in the city. Has electricity, internet, running water. Appliances include small fridge, electric fan, microwave, and rice cooker. No TV. Ferds uses a compact web-based home media system (laptop + speakers).

Bio: Born 29 years ago. Grew up in the townie suburbs. Graduated elementary and high school, both in private schools. Took a degree in English in an okay university, graduated after 5 years due to repeated taking of basic Math courses. Had dreams of being a renowned speaker/lecturer, but decided it would be too much work and ended up working at Call Center agency, handling inbound calls. Team likes him because he's so chill. Has been working for over 7 years.

Ferds is somewhere in this picture.

Name: Tiburcio Terumbano (alyas Tite)
Age: 41
Sex: M
Personality: Tigasin
Occupation: Balut Vendor

Major Skills:

  • The Voice - Twenty-five years of selling balut has honed Tite's voice. His voice can traverse vast distances and the sound can even penetrate multiple concrete walls in order to bother the couples having sex in the middle of the night. Tite can also sing a perfect "My Way" that can silence other karaoke bars in the vicinity.
  • My Precious - Tite always takes good care of his eggs. He has developed very fast reflexes in order to catch any balut that has slipped through a nearby buyer's hand because of its surprising heat. His hands are now extremely resistant to heat after handling his eggs every day.


Minor Skills:

  • Navigator - Tite wants everyone to appreciate his warm eggs. Over the years, Tite has traveled to far away places in order to sell his merchandise. He has become an amazing navigator — able to use the celestial bodies for guidance; memorize streets and landmarks. He never gets lost on the way back.
  • Eggspert - Tite is an expert in eggs. He knows which eggs would make eggcellent balut. He also knows when and where to harvest eggs of different birds and how to cook them into fine meals.
  • Basket-fu - Tite is no stranger to the dangers of selling balut in shady alleyways at night. He has trained his body to make full use of his balut basket as a deadly combat weapon. In dire situations, he can unravel his basket to form a rattan whip.


Ability:
Rock-hard Cannon - Tite rubs himself vigorously. His body becomes harder and harder with each pump, veins start to show on his skin and Tite starts pulsating as he nears maximum hardness. Upon reaching this limit, Tite's body becomes too rigid to move but he can spit a viscous creamy-white fluid up to 20 meters away. The more time that passes before reusing this power, the thicker and stickier this fluid will be. The mysterious fluid also glows under a black light, making it ideal for leaving messages that are invisible under normal circumstances.
After 3 to 5 "bursts" of this fluid, Tite slowly returns to his normal state, tired and sleepy.

Location: A large bahay kubo in the middle of an empty lot belonging to a valued customer of his 'goods'. It has the usual modest household amenities, plus a balut-making room. He takes his water from a nearby hand-operated water pump.

Bio: To be written. Maybe.

Pic:
Just imagine a 5'4" bald magbabalot with a swabe moustache and medium-buff build. He usually wears a beige tank-top, washed-out denim jeans and Islander™ sandals.
