Near Extinction-A Niche plague and re-population roleplay


Chiyanna
 Share

Recommended Posts

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.

NPCs (Played By Me):

Name: Meeki

Gender/pronouns: Male He/him

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.

~¤~Basic personality~¤~

Quiet, stern, she usually keeps to herself unless others are causing trouble, not afraid to face down anyone or anything that could be a threat (bearyena, rogue, or otherwise) 

~¤~Info about the island(s) their mother was from/their parents/their backstory~¤~

Her mother was a healer and spent most of her time trying to cure her sick packmates, also just as serious as Mist is. Her father was a guard and took-out many threats (sometimes that meant mercy killing the sickest members of the pack that were too sick to do anything but lay there and slowly die)

They are from the burning savana

Sailyn and her late mate, Kirno, came from the mountains to escape the plague. But misfortune followed them where ever they went, and Kirno died of sickness soon after. 

Sailyn's anxiety went through the roof after this. She became extremely overprotective, hovering over Erixo to make sure she didn't get "contaminated" Sailyn also threw herself into her work, wasting away as she spent more and more nights trying to save the patients that even the best healers thought were lost clauses.

~¤~Basic personality~¤~

Energetic, friendly, playful, and curious. Very caring and doesn't like fighting unless absolutely necessary; a last resort

~¤~Info about the island(s) their mother was from/their parents/their backstory~¤~

His parents were from the oasis. They stayed under the water to try and avoid the sickness as much as possible, and it worked for the most part.

Unfortunately, food was starting to get scarce, both in and out of the water. Wulfy's father hunted and gathered food for his pregnant mate, only eating small amounts, just enough to keep himself going, of the food he gathered so she would have enough to support her and their cub.

On one of his hunting expeditions outside of the water, he got infected by a very thin, sick, and half dead nicheling. Making sure he didn't get too close to his mate, he let her know what happened and told her it would be better to leave him behind and search out a safer place to live.

Wulfy's mother was deaf, and because the gills have little-to-no smelling ability, she relied on her mate. Unfortunately for her, not long after she gave birth, she went to get some water, and was ambushed by a bearyena

~¤~Other~¤~

Much like his father, Wulfy would help out any cubs and pregnant females regardless if they were his cubs and mate or not.

Despite being more of a pacifist and slow to anger, if be it necessary, he is a dirty fighter.

He likes sleeping next to someone or in a group

Basic personality: Playful, kinda a coward sometimes

Info about the island(s) their mother was from/their parents/their backstory (optional): no information, she had her memory wiped away when she woke up on the shore

Other: Has a very rare eye mutation that causes her to be almost colorblind, but she can see some things other nichelings can't. She stays mute most of the time.

Carries the plague on her fur but is immune to it herself. It should dissipate in a few days..................

Basic personality (your nicheling's personality will develop more as the RP progresses): he likes digging roots since that's all he can do. he's really slow because webbed hindlegs. he's kind and empathetic but is uncomfortable around nichelings he doesn't know, or even ones he does know if it's a big group. he prefers all the attention to go to others, thank you very much.

Info about the island(s) their mother was from/their parents/their backstory (optional): His parents were killed by bearyenas 😔

Other: other nichelings tend to not like him because he's so slow, has bad eyesight, and can only dig up roots - therefore he is essentially useless

Has traces of the plague on him but is immune to it himself.

Thank you all for joining this! I love all your characters and their stories. We only have females so far, I think I will go ahead and create an npc male in case nobody submits a male character so the nicheling race won't be doomed to extinction from the getgo.

Meet Meeki! Our lovely man who has the ladies of the island all to himself (unless somebody submits a challenger). Though he may feel a bit ganged up on...especially if we play girls vs boys dogeball!

Forgive the quality I had to take these from my phone so I could post this tonight. I don't have enough brainpower to make up a backstory for him so it'll have to wait. Also if you guys want me to make another npc I do have one I got when randomizing him that caught my eye.

Before it was only one character, but since it appears nobody else is joining you can take Meeki 2 and feel free to rename him cause it would be confusing otherwise lol. Fill out the form for him.
