If this isn't allowed, let me know and I'll move it from CHB.
Okay, so basically it's a role play. :3 You don't have to have read the books to join; there will be no spoilers. Unless I get told off, we'll be 'playing in this topic. Standard CHB rules apply. Please avoid OoC whenever possible. You can make a discussion thread if you really
need to. Also, don't post a bunch with just one person, like you would normally. We don't want people getting behind and confused. I'm hoping for long, quality posts that show insight on your character(s) and moves the story along. Stretch yourself a bit in this rp.The story:
It's a normal school day when -poof-
everyone above the age of 14 disappears. Gone. No one knows why or how, but kids are rejoicing because it means school's out. There's free candy in the stores; no one is around to tell them to stop playing video games; life becomes one big party. But there are other kids who start missing their mommy and daddy. When will they be back?
Will they be back?
It's discovered that this poof happened to a certain area. A dome (or maybe globe?) surrounds a twenty-mile radius around the power-plant down the highway [see maps below]. It's also discovered that kids are getting (and have been getting) powers. Like X-men stuff. Sometimes they're scary, sometimes they seem useless, and sometimes they help people survive.
There are two schools within the radius of the FAYZ: Perdido Beach Elementary and Coats Academy. [Correct me if I got them wrong...] Coats is a place for rich kids, but mostly a place for "troubled" kids.
[Ask me any questions or suggest a better description through pm, please!]The Form:
I'm gunna explain the form and then give it to you. Avoid using a name already taken, even one in the books. We had a girl named Sam in my last rp and I started getting confused lol. Your character MUST be younger than 15. If the character is 14, state how soon their birthday is. For power, you only get one, and you need to rate it 1-3 bars, 3 being the strongest. You don't need to be terribly creative if you don't want to (basic powers like levitation and invisibility are perfectly fine), but don't take a power someone else already has. The appearance is general, probably close to a paragraph. If you use a picture, put it in a spoiler please. Same with personality, though more like two paras. Before the FAYZ is like before CHB, so close to one to two paras. Entering the FAYZ is like the rp example, but basically you tell us where your character was when the poof happened.
Before the FAYZ:
Entering the FAYZ:
Finally, about the books. There are four out so far, with two more announced. [Gone
, and Light
. I have read up to Lies
because I'm getting them in paperback.] They're written by Michael Grant, and have been praised by some top-notch people. Stephen King, for example, says he loves the books. "Exciting, high-tension stories." ALA Booklist
says, "Disturbing, brilliantly plotted, and boasting a balanced mix of action and scheming." I highly recommend you read them, especially if you enjoy the rp. :3
