This rpg is based off a story I'm attempting to write. Emphasis on "attempting" XD Either that or the story is based on the rpg. I'm really not sure anymore ahaha
In 2016, a twenty-one year old genius author by the name of Simon Farthing wrote a book entitled 'Mortality'. In this book, he expressed theories of ways to extend the human life, even create immortal beings. These were revolutionary ideas nobody ever considered before. This book was published on January 5th, 2017, and became the most popular book at the time. Kate Houston, a scientist, read the book and was inspired to put Farthing's theories into practice. She started a department called the Human Life Extension Study, or HLES, and began experimenting on volunteers, but this was not recieved well, and people protested against the experiments, claiming it was wrong. They weren't going well, either, and almost 50% of test subjects had died in the process of the experiment. Dr. Houston shut down the department on March 14th, 2018. Over 2,000 volunteers had been killed, with just under 2,500 still alive. Soon Simon Farthing's book as well as HLES was almost completely forgotten. The experiment had failed.
Well, that's what they thought. I'm Nichole Jordan, and I was one of the test subjects in 2017. I was 21 years old then. Today, the day I'm writing this, is 2145. And guess what?
I'm still 21.
Yup. Yet another rp.
So what happened is the experiment succeeded on 2,473 of the volunteers, and they were either granted extended life or immortality. The ones with extended life died around 2090, so only the immortal ones survive, hiding from normal humans.
A group of scientists are using the old HLES building to test on the immortals, sending 'hunters' to capture them. The HLES building is near the edge of New Orleans, and all the immortals live in the city.
Immortals cannot get sick or die of old age, but they can die in other ways.
Immortals have to be 20 or older, since 20 was the minimum age to volunteer for the HLES program.
