ghost_Shadow originally created this RPG, so the Idea, and the notes, all are hers, and are in no way mine, I am simply continuing the RPG on my account.
'...It's dark... It's cold... It's always like this... Always... How long has it been? How long?... I can't tell, if it's night or day... What hour... What year... What season it is... I... Can't remember anything... What does the outside feel like? Did I ever use to be outside?... I'm different from the others... Different... They say I'm not one of them... Monster... If... If I'm not one of them... What am I?...'
Someone wants to kill you. Witchcraft, mutations, genetic alterations, whatever. The point is, the government wants your head mounted on a wall. Military intelligence knew it was a bad idea in the first place, but still they went through with it. Preparations for the Apocalypse went out of hand, and now the President is a believer. The Preppers say humans won't be able to survive. So what now?, they said. How do we keep humanity alive?, they said. Really, it was simple. Give humanity to something else, and turn it into someONE else. MI5 thought it was a bad idea, ASIS thought it was a crazy idea, and the CIA knew it was going to get them all killed. But still, they went on. And now, we have you. The Mutts. Military intelligence says it'll be the downfall of America, that you'll rise above and take control. The public says your're every nightmare come to life. The world says you're just another failed science experiment. A.P.O.C. says it'll take you down. Are you going to prove them right? Or are you going to get out of that cage and save your hide? You're decision. Choose wisely
Mutts have two forms, human and feral. Mutts don't go feral 'magically'. They ain't no poof hounds, sparkle dogs, or exploding-look-I'm-an-animal-now things. Changes take time, depending on the age and mutt. They can be any four-legged species, such as a canine, equine, etc. The hair on mutts is fur, in both forms. In human form, it may look like hair, but it is actually finer fur. Fur types vary in Mutts, meaning they can have any pattern, any colour(natural), and any texture. The hair is usually the same or similar colour to the rest of the fur. When it comes to texture, ie. Wavy, spiky, course, thick, fluffy, curly etc., it will always follow into the feral form. Length is a different matter. As long as the hair may be in human form, it will shorten to average fur length when in feral form, yet still resemble the style the human had. Eye colour in Mutts is usually a warm hue, but this isn't always the case. The whites of the eyes are visible in both forms. In feral form, Mutts can show many expressions, whether it be with eye brows, smiles, eyes, etc. When in feral form, Mutts cannot speak, at least not in any tongue a human would recognize easily. They communicate much like canines, with body language, expressions, and some sounds. Mutts in human form, and maybe a well versed human, can understand feral mutts. Mutts can understand each other as if they are speaking, but to humans they are animals. Colors, natural markings, eyes, etc. must be realistic. There are three types of characters. Mutts, A.P.O.C., and humans. A.P.O.C. is a search and destroy military intelligence team trained to hunt and kill mutts and humans that help them. Humans can be anything from Preppers, to the average citizen. The RPG is based in Washington, D.C. and the closer areas of Virginia. This means there are forests and wilderness as well as city and town areas. But, this also means there is a lot of armed personel.
