In a world covered by endless water...

People are forced to eke out a living on the small patches of land that remain above the sea. The people of this world rely on ancient technology driven by quantum refractors, a powerful energy source. These refractors lie in ancient ruins underground and in the sea and are sought out by explorers called Diggers.

These brave explorers are the sole source of refractor energy which has become a cornerstone of the emerging civilizations. Originally, this was the Diggers' only purpose; to find refractors so that civilization would endure. However, over the years, the story of an incredible treasure, the legendary Mother Lode, began to be whispered among the Diggers.

The Mother Lode... A treasure so great that were it discovered, it would provide so much power that the world need never fear of running out of energy.

In search of this Mother Lode, Diggers travel from one island to another in their flying machines ever hoping that they'll find what they seek just over the horizon.

Hope…
Despair…
Charity…
Greed…
Duty…
Power…

Who can say what truly motivates the Diggers?


CAUTION: AT TIMES, THIS GAME WILL PORTRAY ITS CHARACTERS IN AN INTIMATE AND POSSIBLY SEXUAL NATURE. IN ADDITION, THERE MAY BE MOMENTS OF EXTREME VIOLENCE AND/OR BLOOD AND GORE. READER DISCRETION IS ADVISED.

This “water world” of sorts is called Terra. Our characters will be a team of Diggers who retrieve quantum refractors (powerful crystals that vary in size and color, used for energy) and then sell them to various companies, cities, and governments, while keeping an eye out for any hints to the whereabouts of the Mother Lode.

Under the surface of Terra are millions and millions of tunnels and caves, usually referred to as “Ruins”, because they are remnants of an ancient civilization: In the time before time, those that are now known as the Ancients created an enormous underground world, sometimes also referred to as the Underground. They created the crystals we call quantum refractors, and each crystal, depending on size and color, holds a certain amount of energy (see the refractor guide, below).

Diggers travel into the Underground and locate the refractors that where left there by the Ancients. However, this can be very dangerous, because the Ancients also left self-operating machines to guard the Underground, called Reaverbots. Reaverbots come in many shapes, sizes, and models, and will not stop defending the Ruins until they are disabled.

In addition to the technologies of the Ancients and their Underground Ruins, they must beware of air pirates, who prey on young Diggers and steal their refractors, and whatever treasures they may have attained on their last Dig (the act of going into the Ruins is called a Dig).

Travel between the many islands of Terra is primarily by air ship. Large, passenger-class ships transport people in the same manner that an airplane does, however, smaller, more agile ships are used by Digger crews and the like. There are also cruise ships and various other classes.

In some cases, when islands are very far away from one another, each one is controlled by a separate government. Single-city islands are run by a Mayor. Multiple-city islands have a Mayor for each city and then a Governor for the entire island. In some areas, however, a few islands are very close, and are all controlled by a President, who has a Governor for each island and a Mayor for each city. Even if some islands are independent, almost all Mayors and Governors communicate regularly with Presidents.

The biggest known leader is President Stephen Stoneguard, who controls the United Empire. The Empire is made up of islands close and far. Twelve Governors and nearly fifty Mayors, The United Empire is the biggest nation to date.

Also, I feel I should tell you a bit more about Digger crews. Normally, each crew consists of five Diggers and a Spotter, who stays on the surface and communicates with the team via radio. The Spotter can scan the Ruins, giving him/her a sort of radar, and can inform the Diggers if Reaverbots are near. Here is a link to the Reaverbot types used in the game.

Quantum Refractor Guide

Small: Can be used for cars and smaller ships.
Medium Small: Can be used for larger machines.
Medium: Can be used for warehouses and factories.
Medium Large: Can be used for smaller towns and cities.
Large: Can be used to power an entire city of a medium size.
Huge: Can be used to power enormous metropolises and massive machines.

Green: This color means the said refractor will die out quick.
Yellow: This color will last a but longer before running out of power.
Blue: This color will last a fairly long time.
Red: This color will last a very long time.
White: The most valuable and rare color. These last for years and years before burning out. A Huge or Large White Refractor has never been found as of yet (rumors suggest that the Mother Lode is a chamber full of Huge Whites).


I don’t want to leave you will many pages of stuff to read, so I will leave this part at this and if it’s needed, I’ll give you more info OOC.



So, I need five other players. Four will be Diggers, and one will be a Spotter. The six of us have just gained our Digger’s Licenses, and the game will start with us gathering at the air field in Liberty City, which is where we took the tests. We have just purchased a used air ship, the Flutter, and are preparing to set out for our first adventure. Also, a Spotter is still part of the Digger crew and therefore must have a Digger’s License as well.

Your backgrounds can be whatever you want, but just include that the six of us met when we arrived to take the Digger exam. The legal age of consent in this world is sixteen, therefore one must be at least that age to attain a License. Whether your character has just turned sixteen and got his License or he is older and pursued some other career before taking the exam is up to you. Either way, all six met during the twelve week Digger course.

On a side note, every month has twenty-eight days, meaning four weeks exactly. All holidays are still the same, however.

PM me your characters, but remember I need only four Diggers and one Spotter. You can look at my character for the format I’d prefer, and please send a character portrait, whatever it may be. The Character Database will be added as a reply to this. Also, the game is called MegaMan, but that does not mean you can be MegaMan. You’ll find out later on why I’m still using that title.

The current year is 1997 D.A. (Discovery of the Ancients) and it is the beginning of June.

"I don't know," Max said with a look at the stairs. "Well, I'm done with my check-up of the Flutter. We're good to go." with that, he walked back upstairs and to the Bridge.

Wil finished his tune-up, then followed Max to the bridge. He hoped this first dig was uneventful, though he really needed a good chance to test out his new arm. Things would move a lot faster now that they were licensed.

Ella was already in the bridge, testing and checking the monitors and gagues. She was wearing a red tank top and some old jeans that had a tear going sideways on the back of the thigh, just under her butt, and a hole in both knees. They'd seen better days, but they were her favorite jeans. Her black hair was pulled into a high ponytail, but her hair still trailed nearly down to the waist of her jeans. Some red plastic framed glasses were perched low on her nose as she double-checked a few readings. She was oblivious to everything else going on around her.

“Ah,” Max said with a smile. “There you are. Good morning, Ella.”

Hades was the last to get to the bridge and passed by Ella, mumbling to her, "You should really patch those up."

"Morning. I was wondering when you guys would get here. I was just double-checking to make sure all the censors were working properly. Never can be too safe, you know?"

“We were in the engine room. I’ve been here for about two hours running diagnostics.” said Max with a smile.

"Then it appears we were on a similar mission," she said to Max with a smile. "Both making sure everything works right so this dig goes as smoothly as possible."

Wil sat down on one of the seats, looking at the three of them. He shook his head, then pulled a coat over his shirt, covering his arm.

"So, is that everyone?" He never did go for the details, he was more a man of action.

Still tired, Hades allowed herself a wide yawn that she stiffled with the palm of her hand. The crew barely interested her, but she had to partake in whatever was going on around her. Afterall, she was part of the crew and needed to tend to the ship in whatever way it required.

“We have much in common, we do,” Max said with a smile to Ella, then turned to Wil. “No, we’re still waiting on Rain and Rage, remember? As soon as they get here we’ll depart.”

Groaning softly Rain looked around, groggily putting together where she was and what she needed to do. Slidding her bare legs over the side of the bed she slowly stood up and stretched, lazily. Walking over to her dresser she pulled out her stalkings and slid them on, noticing that they had yet another new hole in them. "Maybe it's time for a new pair..." She contemplated this thought as she pulled out the rest of her clothes. Stepping into her skirt she twirlled once around the room before grabbing her shirt and slipping it on over her head. Checking her reflection in the mirror she noted that not only was there another hole in her stalkings, but her skirt was a bit skimpy, coming only to her mid theigh. She desided to ignore these facts though, labling them as individuality, instead of addmitting the truth, that she was just to lazy to go to the market and buy new ones...

Skipping out of the room she turned and made sure she had gathered all of her things, not wanting to leave anything behind. Since it was unlikly that she would return for a while. Once saticfied with the state of things she ran skipped and jumped her way to 'The Flutter' squeeling with glee. Happy that she was finally a certified digger, and that she would finally get to do what she had always dreamed of.

Reaching the ship she threw open the door and ran inside antious to see what the plan for the day was. Stopping by her room she checked her belongings before heading into the bridge.

"Good morning everyone!" She all but yelled, her excitement ovbious in her voice as she took her seat.

Hades smiled at her excitement, and nodded to her. "Hope you slept well, knowing how every day is, this is gonna be just as long and hard." She said in her mumbly tone.

"No worries." She replied whole heartedly. "Sleep, I'm sure. Is going to be one of the farhtest things from our monds for at least a little while. I know I'm to excited to even think about it at the moment."

"Let's hope Rain's enthusiasm sticks to the rest of us. I have a feeling this dig is going to be long and strenuous."
