I've said I'd never do this again. But it's difficult to say 'no' to @Aphelion . So here we are, a freeform forum RP. If you post in this thread, it is expected that you've read this post in full, and whatever the most recent 3 posts are before contributing to the thread for the first time. Off topic posts and spam will be strictly moderated in this thread. Don't play other people's characters. Even small things, like saying they are surprised, are not okay. If you want to have an extended, complex interaction with someone, perhaps do it in private, then one of you can post the resulting back-and-forth here. The Setting: It wasn't that long ago that the world was better than this. There were fields and rolling hills of green, red, and purple glass. Trees of crystal, rivers of wine, sprawling cities of towers and domes. Robots tended our every need, and magicians transformed every inch of our world into a paradise. Paradise is a fleeting thing. The world is dead now. The magics and machines that made our grandparent's lives so luxurious were poison to it. The human race will end soon. We may linger on for a few generations yet, but our numbers are ever dwindling. Already, new creatures are rising to replace us. Creatures suited to live in the world we made for them. The Weird Wastes of the World that Was.
