BACKSTORY
—————————————

The following is an excerpt taken from the City of Lost Angels back story and serves to provide some framing for the setting of the sim.  For all intents and purposes R3volt City takes place in this same universe.

“In the summer of 2032, after it already seemed the human race was in its darkest hour, the Armageddon of religious prophecy began. The Earth itself, passing through the tail of a massive comet named Wormwood, was enshrouded in several months of near total darkness and burning hydrocarbon fire and huge cometary fragments cascaded through the sky, blasting the cities and the landscapes of the world and setting the them afire again.”

The world is a very different place as humans all manner of supernatural beings all fight for the future they want to make happen. R3volt City set in Compton (renamed R3volt City by it’s residents) in California, United States in the year 2057, 25 years after the Armageddon.  At the worlds end, R3volt City remains one of the last bastions of civilization.   It is a city of lost hope, a broken city which harbors the worst of humankind and the supernatural.

R3volt City is a freeform roleplaying sim with a emphasis on dark RP and one would be hard pushed to find any white knights.  It has three factions which are broken down below:
 
—————————————
Faction 1 – Cop/Vigilante faction
—————————————

Name: CERBERUS

Brief description: The Cerberus are a group of like-minded individuals who have taken it upon themselves to be ‘the law’ in R3volt City. However, ‘the law’ is not as one would expect and is instead the warped ideals of these individuals.  This is a faction rife with corruption, and best suited for those who wish to enforce their own ideals of what’s ‘right’ onto others.

Stores owned: Medical Centre, General Mart, Diner, Gun shop, Laundromat

—————————————
Faction 2 – Criminal faction
—————————————
Name: APEX

Brief description: The Apex are a group of criminals who have decided to make R3volt City their playground for their criminal activities.  They are cruel, ruthless and have a complete disregard for anyone but themselves.  Constantly at odds with Cerberus, the Apex will do whatever they can to further their own goals, no matter how low they have to go.  Cerberus have some moral compass but the Apex is a faction for those who wish to play typically ‘evil’ or ‘villain’ characters.

Stores owned: Bar, Tattoo Parlour, Cafe, Magic Shop, Craptrap Inc.

—————————————
Faction 3 – Switzerland faction
—————————————

Name: HALCYON

Brief description: The Halcyon are a group of people who could be best described as just trying to make a living.  They try and stay out of the constant war that rages between Cerberus and Apex and would rather focus on trying to get by and make ends meet.  Despite this, as one would expect, they sometimes find themselves caught in the cross fire.  However, Halcyon are not to be underestimated by any means.  They are much more unified than Cerberus and Apex, which are usually flung into chaos as the groups try not to dismantle each other.  This is a faction for those who do not wish to get as involved in conflict RP as the Cerberus and Apex factions and would prefer to live a more ‘peaceful’ life in R3volt city.

Stores owned: Hair Salon, Record Shop, Weed Shop, Bakery, Chinese Food
