In the year %#(@, the world ended. A nuclear power facility was creating an atomic fusion generator that was claimed to be the cure to pollution, which was what removed the ozone layer in the first place. As the generator was activated, things seemed wonderful. Everything was working. Except there was an unaccounted cooling error, which caused the generator to overheat and produce more energy than it was being fed. The scientists would have been amazed at the fact that they had just disproved the Law of the Conservation of Energy if their bodies weren't disintegrating at the same time. And the barriers put in place to block the UV rays didn't help either. When the barriers closed during the day, the energy spread much faster. Everyone seemed to have either disappeared or became something- inhuman. Except for the fact that one-sixth of the population was still normal. While the reasoning for this is unknown, what is known is that you have to survive. You must always be on the run. Gather resources, steal weapons, and protect your team. On your journey you will find you aren't exactly the same either. You have gifts to help you survive. But there is more than just one problem you will have to face.

If you'd like to sign-up, do so here.
You start out with basically anything you can find in your room. No weapons to begin with. The reasoning for this is because you literally start in your room, waking up in the morning in a ghost town.
No character limit.
Abilities are learned throughout the game, and they aren't as much superpowers as upgrades, sorry.
No killing or permanently damaging other players without permission (which is pretty dumb anyways, you guys are a part of the only living humans alive.
I have veto power over characters. But I'm pretty lenient, so yeah.
Still not sure what metagaming is, but @LTVmocs says none of it, so I'm just gonna put that here.
All characters start out in the same town.
If you go a while without posting, I will ask you if you still want to be in it, and if there is no reply or you decline, your character's role will be assumed by me and I'll have them die or something.
You can sign-up at anytime, and I'll steer the story into smoothly bringing your character in as soon as possible!
Time: 6:00 A.M. Year: %#(@. Date: March 24. Day: Thursday. Location: Bluehorn City (Western US)
First day after radiation (no one really knows what has happened yet unless they leave deeper in the city and realize there are no cars moving.
Bluehorn City High students and early risers wake up on this seemingly normal day.
Kyle jumps out of bed. The sunlight barely peeks through his shades, giving the room a murky light. The sky was dark. Well, darker than usual for 6:00. But it had been that way ever since the sun pierced through the weak atmosphere and forced everyone inside until they created the barriers. Kyle gets ready for school and gets to the bus stop without seeing anyone, which was usual for him. He lives in the suburbs.
