The Genesis Chronicles.

Post by CPT Revenge Unit #27 on Mon Oct 07, 2013 5:51 am

First topic message reminder :

The pods struck the ground with tremendous force, burying themselves slightly with loud thuds. The ground around them was scorched from the friction with the air they had received, but the contents of them were unharmed. The first few pods were entirely metal, with hatches on the exterior; these stored items such as food, clothes, and weapons, each with a full name stenciled onto the front. The next few pods, were different however, the fronts being made of glass, revealing the frozen beings within. Their memories were unaltered, like many might believe; but some would prefer to forget. They had been lucky enough to be able to join the New Genesis program, a program that would help the inhabitants of earth survive once the world was destroyed. And destroyed it was.
Earth was unable to sustain the races that inhabited it anymore. After the ores within the planet were removed for industrial purposes, the earth was an empty husk, a frail shell with over a trillion lives upon it. A husk which imploded upon itself, destroying the world.
After a few minutes, the pods had cooled enough to allow the inhabitants to exit their deep cryogenic stasis. The first door slid open, and out stepped the half-avian, half-human form of Jack Ike. As he stepped out of his pod, the first thing he did was stretch the large, obsidian-black wings on his back, then take a breath. He ruffled the feathers on his head, then stepped towards the storage pod that had his name on it.

This man, along with the others in the pods, was Colony Omnicron of the New Genesis program.

(Join quick; once we leave the pod area, nobody else will be able to join for awhile. Pretty much any race is accepted: Full human, Neko, mostly animal, pretty much anything as long as your character can talk.)

Kane thought for a second and said "to hell with it". He stood up with his bag and rifle and spread out his wings.

Jack shrugged his shoulders. He drew his rifle, emptied the spent shell out of the chamber, then held it at the ready. "I'm still going to the forest. The lake is still too far."

Gracchus grunted to Pia. "Good idea. Grab hold and stay tight. This'll be some ride." He waited until Pia was firmly on his back, then spread his great wings. He flapped once, propelling himself high into the air. Then, pointing himself in the direction of the lake, he flapped quickly with only the bottom half of his wings, making for fast flight. Slowly, he increased the rate of the flapping, and soon the two were shooting across the sky at 100 miles per hour and increasing in speed steadily.

Pia stifled a scream as they launched into the air and immediately flattened onto the thing's back. Her head pressed between it's shoulderblades, swimmy again, as she fought back panic. In her mind she named all the types of fish she knew and tried to remember how many fins. It'll be over soon, it'll be over soon, she chided herself. The wind was biting on her bare legs. Once again she chastised herself for not dressing more warmly, more protectively. Thankfully her left leg she couldn't feel.

She couldn't bring herself to open her eyes, and whether it was because of the gusts of wind or their extreme altitude she didn't question. Her stringy black hair no doubt flew about like a living beast all it's own.

But she could hold on, at least, and hope that the spacetech had remembered to launch the satellite to their communication devices. If everyone got one, that is. And if they were truly as scatterbrained as Jack said there was really no telling if everyone even got one. She had one. Perhaps they could be used to contact others from the list fourty-something--if they had landed, at least.

Jack rolled his eyes as the three departed, Gracchus travelling at excessively high speeds without a real need to just yet. He himself then began hovering above the ground, high enough as to avoid the lethal sap-plants, and flew to the forest. Upon reaching the edge of it, he entered, stepping over tree roots and looking around constantly. He couldn't really see much, but he continued travelling inwards, searching. He soon found himself falling towards the floor, having tripped on something. After getting back up and dusting himself off, he turned and looked at what he had tripped on. It was a metal box, half-buried into the ground, tree roots well and truly growing over it.

(I'll rp a much better reply on Monday. For now, I apologize.)

Gracchus flew swiftly; the kappuras were well known for their high speeds through the air. The trees below them were just a green blur, and he could now see the lake from just a thousand feet above ground. He sensed Pia's grip on him, and smiled. He erected his ruff of fur, protecting the young girl from the superstrong wind. As they neared 200 miles per hour, the lake stretched under them. Gracchus slowed down, large feathers on his tail, at first unseen, spreading out. He flapped slowly toward the cliffs on one side of the lake, where the mountains began, spotting a rather wide ledge about a hundred feet above the water's surface. They were traveling at 20 miles per hour; Gracchus flattened his ruff. He landed upon the ledge carefully. "We're here, at the lake. We're on a ledge, part of a cliff," the derpa grunted to his rider.

"Oh, me." Careful, she slipped off the beast and onto the smooth stone of the ledge. Pia was shaking all over. "When I was younger, you know, and I imagined my life at twenty-three, this isn't at all like I imagined..."

She sat against a rock, the limp leg jutting out awkwardly, and dropped her backpack in front of her. Pia took out the communicator. It was small--the same size and shape of a gameboy--with only a tiny screen, a tiny keyboard, four buttons for direction, and a round enter button in the center of them. It's creators hadn't bother much with design, that was certain. It was an ugly blue-gray, the buttons were only small enough to keep from running over the side, the entire back was a solar panel so that you had to flip it over to charge...

Pia pressed in a triangular button on the side and watched the screen come to life.


NewGen: Welcome, 0034. And good luck to you.

To access your Colony Addressbook, click the notebook icon in the bottom right corner. You will find that your contacts are organized by pod number for your convenience.

To charge your NewGen, please cease all activity, then place it in a sunny spot free of moisture, screen-side facing down. Communicators low on energy will automatically shut down without sending any unsent messages. For this reason, it is essential that this communicator be charged at least once a day.

For more advice on how to get the best out of your NewGen, please visit the help panel.


"'For my convenience,'" she muttered, scrolling through the list of contacts. "Now I don't know which one is Kane and which one is Jack. I didn't even pay attention to my pod number."

She selected one of numbers closest to her. 0035. A safe bet.

Sending to 0035...
0034: is someone there?

"What is that thing?" Gracchus asked, cocking his large head. "The closest weird screen thingy I have is this," he said, flicking his finger at the metal bracelet clapped around his left wrist. "And this I know. We had these in Caelum..."

He watched closely as Pia's welcome screen came up, and read quickly. "Hmmm. Pod numbers. Funny. How about names? Mine goes by last names, in alphabetical order." That launched Gracchus into an intense discussion with his mind. "Arghh!" he mumbled quietly to himself. "What's my pod number..." He pressed the top of his bracelet, and it opened up into a mini-laptop with a small keyboard and touch pad with the clickers. Upon pressing the power button, he typed in a password. Everything was in Latin, but Gracchus switched the language to English after a bit of grumbling and swearing. Finally, he searched "POD" ("What is a pod?"): "A metal cylinder that can carry you through time or space." Then followed a long list of discussion of pods. Gracchus snarled. "THE DAMN IKE!!!" he roared, then clapped a hand over his mouth. "Okay. According to CAEnet, we could be in the past or future and anywhere in space, meaning zillions of solar systems included." He closed the screen, letting it crisply click into place. "How's yours goin'?"

The response from Pia's unknown recipient was less than enthusiastic.

0035: Run. Hide.

Any further attempts to communicate with 0035 would be met with no reply; the device may have been destroyed, for one reason or another. Pia would then be informed that she had recieved a message from 0013.

0013: Jack Ike. You should be Pia. We've got a problem.

As he sent the message, Jack looked down at the contents of the metal box he'd just unearthed. It was frightening, but undeniable.

"How...is this...um," she muttered, scooting nearer. The girl craned her neck to peer into the little computer screen strapped around Gracchus' leg. Gracchus kept talking to himself, of course. And so Pia was more than a little startled when he suddenly raised his voice right near her ear. She fixed him with a disdainful look that would shame a grown man to tears.

Why did he have to scare her like that? It sounded like he'd gotten shot or something. Besides, Jack wasn't even there! She looked down at the communicator and sighed, unaware that she was about to have a lot more trouble than this overgrown flying puppy. It blipped.

0034: is someone there?
0035: Run. Hide.
0034: who is this?
0034: hello?


And then another blip, another message. When she saw it was Jack, she tilted the communicator where the nosy derpa couldn't see it.

She typed back a response.

0034: what is it jack? is something happening??

Gracchus grumbled, and he stretched his wings. He tilted his head when Pia turned her computer thingy away from his face. Just as well. He examined his bracelet thingy for any number, and upon finding one, he assumed it was his pod number. "Apparently, my pod number is 0046. What's yours?" He looked at Pia, but all she did was type something into her computer. He was about to distort his perfectly ugly face into a snarl, but thought against it. She was already unhappy with him as it was.

0034: what is it Jack? Is something happening?

Jack muffled a laugh at the irony of the question. Still, he needed to relay the information.

0013: Already happened. Worse going to.
0013: Is Kane with you?

Jack couldn't see Kane with him, and was hoping that he was with the others. Either way, it was gonna take some time to get the newly-unearthed metal box out of the forest. He sent his last message, then hoisted the box up onto his back and began lugging it out of the forest.

0013: Meet at the edge of the forest. Now.

Pia looked at the screen for a long time before acknowledging Gracchus.

"My...pod number? It's, um, Oh-oh-thirty-four..." she said quietly; even quieter, she added, "...Jack, uh, wants to meet by the edge of the forest."

Pia slid the communicator across to Gracchus. It was flipped screen-side up, showing she and Jack's brief conversation.

(Tea et al: I will be a little sketchy writing here, so... ya know.... Tea, you know my charrie well enough, so you can rp him after I finish this post.)

Gracchus looked over with a worried face. "Okay.... so, we go to the edge of the forest, right? But which edge of the forest?"

Pia was surprised. "You mean you're ok with it?" He looked a little uncertain, and then nodded.

The communicator was quickly stuffed away into her pouch, and her long black hair pushed back behind her shoulders. Pia wasted no time in slinging on her pack and climbing onto Gracchus. But looking out at the treeline, her heart fluttered a moment. From what she had experienced, she hated, hated, hated to fly. And now she had to fly all the way back? What if it got dark? (She made a mental note to tell off Jack once the problem passed.)

."...The edge that we were walking towards originally, probably. Be fast and don't sling me off."

First, though, Pia had Gracchus fly down to the lake; she filled her canteens, grabbed a stick of strange reddish wood, and they took off. What they called their sun had taken on a lazy red by the time they reached the edge of the forest. The sun was setting.

Gracchus grunted something about looking out for rouges and meandered off. He probably doesn't want to see him anymore than I do, she thought to herself. At least he won't be poking his head in it now. We don't need another fight. Goodness....

And so she made her way into the trees, leaning on the crude walking stick and making a lot of noise as she did.

"Ike! Jack Ike! Hello? You better be here or I'm going to be angrier than ever!"

"Over here!" He said, not too far away, lugging the heavy metal box. He made his way out onto the plains before tossing the box off, which made a loud thump on the ground. "We have a very, very big problem." He said, gesturing to the metal box. "Do you know what this is? And more importantly, what it means?" His tone was very serious, and something seemed to have spooked him.

Obediently, she followed.

Pia placed her chin on the top of her walking stick and sighed at the question. Now that she saw the threat was a box, she didn't seem particularly worried. "No, but I suppose you do...Where's Kane? Did you really lose him?"

"Pia, don't you get it? The rust, the roots clinging to it..." He made gestures as if this was supposedly extremely obvious. He was more interested in this box than his friends life, which showed some form of importance. "This metal box is thousands of years old. That is why we are the only ones here. We are very, very late."

"So you're saying..." Pia kept her eyes on the box, chewing her words slowly before she said them. "...that somehow...our pods got off track, or something, and the rest of the colony must've started...without us. Thousands of years ago. And that I--you and me--are actually thousands of years old."

She cleared her throat. "How do you know? I'm not going to believe you unless I see some evidence. A rusty box isn't enough. What's inside of it?"
