Chiyanna Posted September 21, 2021 Share Posted September 21, 2021 It started as a mild sickness in rabbils, and then it mutated. It started infecting dodomingos, stagmoles bearyenas, bluebirds, everything. The germs gained the ability to stay on berries and leaves for days. And then, the first nicheling was infected. It was called Rabbil Cough, but it grew much worse. Soon it affected nichelings like the immunity sicknesses of old, cutting their lifespan in half, and still it got worse. It became deadly. And the entire nicheling race eventually succumbed to it. But a half-dozen females, though infected, had mild enough symptoms to where they could escape their islands on the back of a whale, and have their children. Miraculously, the children appeared immune, but they didn't want to take a chance... If the children caught the Black Death, it would mean the extinction of the nicheling race. They scouted out the whale island, and saw that the rabbils here appeared uneffected. So as soon as their children were old enough to be weaned, they did what had to be done... Welcome to near extinction. Where it is your job to save the entire Nicheling species and re-populate every island type in the game with them. But beware, the Black Death may lurk around every corner... Limit 6 nichelings in total, (unless in the case of twins, there can only be one or two twin pairs, ask if you want a chance to be in one). You start as a no-gemmed child, but don't worry, the early days will progress quickly. Half-siblings and cousins are allowed, though you must share some similar genes with those you are related to, but no full-blooded siblings other than twins. Limit is one character for now (if you want relatives, ask other players to be them or me to make an npc). Though if not enough people join may expand it to two characters. I may make npcs that I will play if not enough people join. Also, if you don't get a slot and want one, don't worry! Once children are born they will be adopted out if somebody wants the character (and those who don't already have a character will be given priority). If not the parent player(s) will play them or I will npc them. Form: Name: Gender/pronouns: Genes and Appearance (preferably a screenshot of your nicheling and their genes, but you can draw/describe your nicheling and list their genes as well): Basic personality (your nicheling's personality will develop more as the RP progresses): Info about the island(s) their mother was from/their parents/their backstory (optional): Other: Map: (you have no idea how long I spent trying to get this thing right and I still couldn't ugh. Yeah there's some overlap, but you can see the general idea) NPCs (Played By Me): Name: Meeki Gender/pronouns: Male He/him Genes and appearance: Basic Personality: Bold but peace-loving. He generally tries to persuade with words. Can be quite loud when he gets excited about something. Most of the time thinks he's the one who's "right". But he has a good heart and doesn't mean to hurt with his bluntness only to help. Backstory: Meeki's father was a wanderer who loved to swim. Born with the plague raging to a female who lived in the water, he stayed in the water away from other nichelings. He had to stay near shore or in rivers since he couldn't breathe underwater like his mother and ocean currents would sweep hid under. Meeki's mother was a gatherer in a jungle tribe. The two met when he saved her from drowning in the river and they fell in love. Soon after the plague devestated the tribe. The tribe was superstitious and blamed the devestation on her affair with a wanderer. She ran for her life, and then swam for it, the only port blocked by an angry mob. Meeki's father helped her to swim and then to get on the whale. But he died in the process. Her whole tribe eventually died from the plague. Meeki is the only one left. Other: Is a natural swimmer with his webbed paw and lineage if he could only train his talent. But his spikes make him less streamlined and thus slower than most.
