In a not-so-distant future, in the year 2131, the world has changed quite a bit. Not every human is 'pure'. Not everyone can be considered human, or at least that's what some people say. Some people... are cyborgs. Some by choice, others because they have to be. Some nations accept these cyborgs. Other nations don't. Some take advantage, like the Chinese Empire, and Korea, where everyone has to be a Cyborg or face death. Some hate the very idea of cybernetic implants, and would kill you upon knowing that you are a cyborg. Such nations that do this would include most of Africa, most of South America unless you happen to be a crimelord, middle Eastern nations, and the Eastern United States, now separated from the rest of the United States, because of conflicting opinions. Some other nations are a lot more open minded, such as the European Union, which now includes Australia and New Zealand. There is also the Western United States of America, and Canada, as well as Japan and Russia. They all accept cyborgs.

Humanity has also managed to make its steps into extra-terrestrial colonisation. There are many colonies on the moon, and most inhabitants of the moon are cyborgs, with lung replacements so they have an easier time surviving the moon's conditions. But not all of the moon's inhabitants are cyborgs-the Eastern United States Moon Colony has no cyborgs at all, just like the nation on Earth. There is also a base on Mars, created in an agreement between the European Union, Western United States, Russia, and the Chinese Empire, which is for Scientific Research. There are certain rumours... but many governments have covered them up. The information must not get out, or the world will be plunged into even more chaos.

But as of recently, many of the nations that do not agree with cybernetic implants have cut off all contact with any of the moon colonies, even their own. This does not bode well, as it means there are several people stuck on the moon without contact from anyone but their own colony members, as inter-colony contact is discouraged. As if that wasn't enough, there has been a cyborg uprising in Canada, believing themselves to be superior to everyone else, and some fear this may lead to other uprisings. Not only that, but it has been said that nations like the Chinese Empire and Korea have been misusing implants, to force propaganda into their citizens' heads. And then, there is the overall tension between humanity, and cyborgs. Some humans believe that by becoming cyborgs, they are ridding themselves of 'purity', and should be treated as second class citizens.

---

In a dimly lit apartment, a young man crept towards his bed. His eyes were lit, for he was a cyborg. In his country, they weren't accepted. If anyone were to find out, he would be killed, probably. People in his country hated cybernetics. Fortunately, he lived near a constantly shifting border, between the Eastern United States-his country-and the Western United States, a country which accepted cyborgs. He once pondered why he hadn't moved there yet, but then he remembered the incredibly tight, biased border security. Not to mention the gunfights.

Knock.

His attempt at evading had failed, he knew. What was in store for him, he did not. The door creaked as it opened, and a local policeman walked in.

"Seth Tregol, you cyborg traitor. You are under arrest for associating with or being a cyborg."

Seth begrudgingly ceased his creeping, and began following the policeman. Could this really be his end?

---

Northwards, in the mostly-open minded Canada, another young man, this one 100% human, sat in the branches of century-old tree. This one had a blade on his back, and held a grudge, against the cyborgs that had brutally murdered his friends and family. He sat there, reading his favourite manga. Unfortunately, he just so happened to reside in the very city where the cyborgs had an uprising. Footsteps and a shout were heard.

"ARE YOU INFERIOR?!"

The man put his manga down, revealing his piercing eyes and eternal frown. A sharp blade was readied on a group of four, several biased cyborgs were no more.

But others heard the commotion, and the man named Virunk knew it was time for action. Under his breath, he uttered: "Don't interrupt me."

---

Across the globe, in Japan, an intelligent but young cyborg by the name of Matt Keito, who helped create the first sentient computer system, was on his way to his prestigious job at a robotics firm. For him, the day could end up very interesting...

Virunk looked around with a scowl, at the remains of the Cyborgs who had interrupted him, and turned in the direction of the others, who were running toward him; the majority of the group's robotic appearances betraying their identities, as Virunk spun his sword in his hand.
"I won't hold back!" Virunk stated coldly, as he got himself ready for the upcoming fight, his jacket blowing in the wind.

Matt walked into his lab, his neurotransmitter beaming his brainwaves to the doors to unlock them automatically. "Welcome back Mr. Keito" a robotic voice said. A hologram of his "butler", a visualization of his favorite anime character, appeared, floating in midair. "what's the bossman have on the docket for me today?" he asked the character. it fizzled out of existence and was replaced with a chart. the voice said "an experimental sentient robot has escaped from a lab in Silicon Valley" Matt sighed. He hated flight security, but at least he was going to California. Pretty nice place, unlike the rest of America. He held up his left arm, and a circtut in it flashed, then absorbed the hologram. "lets go."

OOC: I keep forgetting that sometimes I have to move things myself. =P

-==IC: Virunk==-

Virunk waited, as the group closed in, underestimating his abilities, thinking him totally inferior to them. As he waited, he noticed that it was a relatively small group, only bout 5 or 6 Cyborgs.
I can take them. Virunk thought, as he waited for them to get into range, thankful they didn't appear to have any guns or energy based weapons.

OOC: That's the only thing I'm considering allowing Virunk to get, implant wise; additions to his hands that allow him to absorb and shoot energy. =P

OOC: I'm not sure how you'd absorb energy, but a laser built into, say, the palm of your hand? Very doable. Wink

IC: As Matt's plane took off, he closed his eyes and activated his neural implant. His mind materialized in cyberspace, inside a bustling courtyard full of people. He closed his eyes and listened in, seeing what was going on. He overheard a social network stream from someone in Canada, and swore. He didn't comprehend WHY someone would forsake implants - well maybe they were just poor - but that was no reason for hate crimes. He walked over the o e of the "walls" of the courtyard, a boiling mass of code seemingly held back by a semi-opaque force field he plunged him arm in and the wall turned red. Matt shook his head and mentally released the required code to bypass the social network's security. He pulled the cyborg's stream forwards mad frowned. Canada. He held up the palm of his hand and a hologram popped up. he shook his head and the hologram began "scrolling" through viruses. Selecting a particularly nasty looking one, he leaned back and threw it into the network stream.

IC (Canada): the leader of the cyborgs about to attack Virunk started shaking, then fell over. The other four looked to each other, worried, then pulled him up an turned to face Virnuk. The other three collapsed and the last one leaned back, a hologram popping out of his eye. "You're welcome. I just broke a few laws to save your a**, so take this" the hologram threw a stylized $ at Virnuk, which got absorbed by his phone "and go get yourself an arm or something"

-==IC: Virunk==-

Virunk, startled, frowned, as he looked at the newcomer hologram in slight suspicion.
"Who are you?" Virunk asked, half curious and half suspicious as to why someone who could use the technology that well would help destroy other Cyborgs, however, he nodded in thanks for helping him out.

OOC: Absorbing energy isn't required, though I wasn't sure what energy source the laser would run off of. =P

"I always thought Canada was big into tolerance and all that" the hologram of Matt said. Virnuk noticed that Matt's hand, and one eye, were not organic. "I'm setting these guy's systems to say they got a virus from a bad porn site. Note of advice; if you get a neural implant, use more encryption than just a simple password. Big guy here" Matt indicated the leader "his entire brain was only protected by the passcode 'ilikebigbutts'. What an idiot." Matt's avatar shook it s head in disgust.

-==IC: Virunk==-

Virunk frowned at seeing the non-organic eye and hand, but shrugged.
"I don't know anything about that... I'm one of the only non-cyborgs here. The Cyborgs killed all the rest; including my family, friends, and the person who taught me how to fight." Virunk said, looking off to the side slightly, but keeping an eye on the mysterious hacker, since he still wasn't entirely sure of him.

"..."
Matt's avatar hung its head. "What a world."
After a moment he asked "so I assume, after giving you a million dollars for an implant, out of the goodness of my heart, that you don't have one because you can't afford it?"

OOC: =P
Also, in the future setting of this RPG, a million is equal to about $2500 =P

IC:

Inside a rather small and therefore cramped car with broken windows, Seth began wondering what his fate would be. Would it be cruel, painful and long, or sweet and short? His hands were cuffed, so it would be difficult to find a way to escape. Only way to find out his fate was to ask.

"What is my fate?" Seth asked the policeman that had arrested him.

"Death, unless the government interferes. Which they shouldn't. You are cyborg scum, you defile the purity of the human race. Now shut up. You are my inferior, clearly. You do not have the rights of a human, cyborg. Remember that. Your impurity has proven to be your downfall."

"...I have tricks."

"Shut up, scum."

And then, out of Seth's cybernetic right hand, in the direction of the policeman, but not close as his hands were cuffed, a laser had been fired. It did not kill, but it left a mark, as well as leaving the policeman unconscious for a few minutes. Seth climbed out of the car using his legs, through the broken windows, and then, Seth began running in the general direction of the border between the EUS and the WUS. Perhaps, once he was in the WUS, he could go northwards, and enter Canada. Once he was out of the EUS, he could possibly find refuge.

"Money is in fact one reason." Virunk said, but nodded.
"However, I won't deny that the incidents here haven't made me hesitant to get implants." Virunk admitted, but frowned.
"However... I'm starting to think that there are indeed some good cyborgs; though I wonder if it's directly related to the amount of implants they have here." Virunk said, but mused for a moment.
"Getting an implant that I could hide, though, would hopefully get the cyborgs here off my case constantly..." Virunk said, not liking the fact that he needed to get an implant, but it might help him in the long run, indeed.

"Eh, I've transferred a few souls to the cloud, they're plenty good people. Its probably just these guys's twisted sense of right and wrong. I blame religion, myself. Have you heard of some of these cyborg cults that have been popping up? Its ridiculous."

"Hey, you seem like a good guy. Let's make a deal. You don't tell anyone about this incident, and if you can make it to silicon valley tomorrow, I'll get you whatever implant you want"

OOC: new character, what do you think?

IC:

Just as he was started to get tired from running, and nowhere near the border between the EUS and WUS, a limousine pulled up to Seth. This was strangely convenient. A rather tall and lanky pure man exited the limousine, and began speaking, with a Canadian accent, to Seth.

"Are you Seth Tregol?"

Seth nodded, not knowing what game this man was playing at. Surely he was here to arrest him, not ask questions?

"Since we don't have the time, we're going to dump you in the middle of a city now ruled by Cyborgs due to an uprising. What we want you to do is infiltrate the cyborgs there, and learn where the next uprisings will be, and where these cyborgs will attack next. You shall report back to us every two days. Understood?"

"You can't just pluck me from here."

"I bloody well can. You have no choice in this, for the Canadian government has chosen an expendable person like you for reasons I am not allowed to know."

"This is awfully convenient." Seth responded, no emotion in his voice.

"Yes, well, you may end up in a few gunfights and a few more wounds than you were anticipating. The city is more dangerous than you think. Now enter the dang limousine."

OOC:

Timeskip. Wink

IC:

An unspecified amount of hours later...

The limousine arrived in the middle of the city now taken over by Cyborgs. It had taken many steps to be cautious, as well as not be seen by anyone or anything. And then, Seth was literally thrown out of the limousine's window, with his face towards the ground. He knew what he was commanded to do. Of course, people are going to notice someone that just appeared out of nowhere. So he had to be cautious himself.

Apparently, the cyborgs that had overtook the city believed in 'unwritten laws', which to many, meant there were none. This often resulted in fighting. But at least they all believed they were superior to men, and that was what brought them together to overthrow the city. And it is what brings them together to attack other places, and pure men.

Virunk, having traveled back to his house before he left, traveled across the highway in his car.
"What do I do after this, though...?" Virunk wondered, the frown still on his face, as the wind blew through his hair; which was currently down, since he hadn't done anything to his hair before he left the town that he had been in.

I've got no place to go, I've got nowhere to run.
They love to watch me fall, they think they know it all.
I'm a nightmare, a disaster, that's what they always said.
I'm a lost cause, not a hero, but I'll make it on my own.
I've gotta prove them wrong - It's me against the world.

It is, in the end, whatever the **** I want it to be.
And when I'm through with it, it's gonna blow a hole this wide
straight through the worlds own idea of itself.

Come on, lets go break their arms.

-==IC: Amarus Zagrene==-
Amarus sighed as he left the psychiatrist's office.  Well, that's another hundred grand wasted.  Third time this month.   A limousine waited for him at the end of the covered awning, but he waved the driver off.  "I'm going to head down to the Department of Games branch, it's close enough to walk.  See you in twenty minutes."  The driver nodded and plugged his hand implants into the dashboard, starting the vehicle and driving it off.  The sun beat down upon Zagrene's brow, but he ignored it the best he could.  No way was he rolling up his long sleeves or his pants--he could break out in implants at any time, and keeping his body covered was an easy way to pretend they weren't there.

As he crossed a street, a group of passing teenagers pushed by, laughing and joking around.  All made a deliberate effort to shove Zagrene as hard as they could--he ignored them, glad that no cybernetics had appeared on his face today.  He glanced at the park beside him, and saw children launching disks and balls of harmless holographic light at each other, unwittingly imitating a centuries-old movie about a man trapped inside a cyberspace grid.  Trapped...yes, that's a good word for it.  But Flynn just had to beat up a computer program to escape.  For me...there is none.  Lost in thought, he didn't notice the wire-bearded man skulking behind the tree ahead of him until it was too late.

"Excuse me," the man said suddenly, stepping into Zagrene's path, "but are you backed up?  When you are permanently deactivated, will your eternal hard drive be uploaded to the Grid of Nirvana, or will your personality files be found wanting by the Great Processing Unit, routed to the intergalactic bit-bucket, and permanently deleted?  I'm Nate Al, Cleric of the Gates, and I'd like to upgrade your life."

Irritated and yet somehow amused, Zagrene took stock of the man as he continued to chatter away.  The visible patch of the man's chest, replaced by a clear plastoid material, revealed an intricate mix of natural and cybernetic components, most of which appeared to have been patched and repaired over and over again.  Of course, the man's clothing drew attention away from this; a patchwork of red, green, blue, and orange flaglike-squares, surrounded by iridescent blue bubbles, the absurdity of the cleric's tunic was matched only by that of his jacket, a sickening translucent aquatic blue styled somewhat like a formal suit jacket--it looked like the tailor had woven it from top to bottom, but had forgotten to stop, leaving the garment to drag at least a foot along the ground.  Rows of white LEDs along the seams completed the garish horror.  Zagrene tuned back in to the man's sermon: "...and all you have to say to guarantee this is, 'My name is,' then say your name, and then proclaim, 'and I'm a PC.'  Whaddaya say?"

Zagrene coldly sidestepped the lunatic preacher, and continued on his way, ignoring the man's calls for him to come back.  To his consternation, another man--this one clearly a Wozniak priest--was headed his way.  Zagrene broke into a run, and managed to get out of sight of the park, when he rand into an attractive woman close to his age.  "Oh, I'm sorry, the cultists are out in the park again, and I--"

"That's OK," the woman said in a heavily synthesized voice.  "I am undamaged.  Are you intact, sir?"

"Zagrene.  Call me Zagrene."

"From now on, I will call you Zagrene.  OK?"

Zagrene looked the woman up and down again, this time with a more critical eye.  She was wearing plainclothes, and if she was what he thought she was...  He took a small ring from his pocket and slipped it on, then pressed a button on the lower left of the holographic display pad that appeared in front of his hand.  "Hello, Los Angeles Police Department?  There's a jailbroken Siri model at Reseda and Oxnard."  The woman took off running.  "Headed east," he added, before closing the line.  His good deed done, Zagrene continued south, hoping to reach the Department before anything else could annoy him.
