Sci-fi roleplay

Hello~ Friendly little co-GM note; this is set in the universe of Red Rising, but you don't need to have read the books. All you need to know is the base concepts of the world; the book's plot will not be used here.
Really, all you need to know is the base-color system found here; Color (Everything you need to know will be in the server itself or you can ask me and I will 1000% help you)

---- Mars, July 736 RRc01, colors populate humanity in the place of races. All slaves to reigning gold, life thrives on all planets, some of them covered in green and growth, others in domes of life and commerce. A false sense of security and hierarchy govern those below as those above feast and ride upon their labors. It is here, in this false utopia, that a tension grows, red and boiling below the gutters gold scoffs at. The Sons of Aries stir beneath the dark corners of what's supposed to be a perfectly polished solar system, wreaking havoc in the shadows. It is here, around 750 years into the Society, that their true mission begins; judge, jury, and executioner. ----

Notes:
-These are Harmony's Sons of Ares. If you aren't a RR fan, this means nothing to you and you can disregard.
-You can create new Gold children, replace them, whatever. Just give some backstory as to why they're there and why they're important. (if you have no idea what the heck this is talking about please do not hesitate at all to ask questions. I am more than happy to help you create a character or adhere current ones to this narrative.)
-All colors are game.

Rules


1. Proficient writing
*You don't gotta be a novelist but if you aren't at least moderately skilled in the English language (this includes imagery, dialogue, character interaction, and more) then pleeeeaaaase for the love of all things please do not apply. Now, if you're not sure of your skill we are very happy to read your application and review it, but if we do not find your writing to be in league with what we deem ok, please do not get angry; we are all for you growing your skills but will definitely not be the ones to help you with that.
2. Basic roleplay etiquette
*Oml this is not optional. Rude characters are ok but rude roleplayers are not. If you need a refresher on roleplay etiquette we are very happy to update you.
3. Please stay within the basic canon.
*Again, you do not have to have read the books or know any sort of storyline at all. The color system is all you truly need to know. Eventually, I will have overview videos of basic canon that is necessary. Any canon characters and such will be explained as introduced.
4. Don't just ghost
*Just don't. Say if you're gonna need time. K? If you're gonna drop out, just tell us. We won't be mad, just gotta find a way to fix the hole your character will leave. This is in basic rp etiquette, but I felt it needed some extra emphasis.
5. Nsfw content may be mentioned (only in the form of a hint, not "and then they had sex"), as well as gore simply because of this universe. No NSFW will never be gone into detail on the server. Ever. Any in detail sexual or erotic roleplay or mention will gain you a very quick strike or (depending on severity) an automatic kick.
6. Keep stuff in the correct channels. Labeled for a reason.

Other rules are minute enough that they're either on the server or implied.


Applications


Note: If you have questions, please ask. We really want to have people come and enjoy this roleplay and get into it, and we know a new universe from a book no less can be daunting. But we want you to understand that learning about this world is nothing different than reading someone's world-building log, especially since I can answer absolutely any questions you have, there's a wiki, and if this goes well enough, there'll be overview videos.

What's going to be the plot of the roleplay? Will it initially be a retelling of any of the books, and then it branches off from there? Do families have to be canonical? Are all of those characters you posted in the character thread your's?

Hiya!

1. Here's the rough plot
-Half-terrorists sons of Ares take over.
-Transportation is shut down.
-Oh heck now our little heck-wads have to stick together
-Maybe get captured by Ares peeps
-Then get dumped in the Institute
From the institute, we'll be running blind

2. With canon families, we're not super strict. You can add in a high ranking gold family you just gotta have a brief or vague history/reputation added on. You can also add in low ranking gold families which require no extra work OR you can replace current golds in high ranking families so long as you know the brief overview of said family. If you decide to replace you can change some of their histories to fit so long as it fits the universe.

3. Sin and Othello are mines and the other two are the co-owners FlameAriiDrayceon FlameAriiDrayceon


I'm afraid people are wary about the canon of the universe. Thing is, allllll will be explained as we go. There really isn't any mandatory info you need other than the color system, your color, and your family history.

I'm interested.

Give me a bit to read through the setting wiki (never read the books but, books being books, it's nice they have their own wiki). Leaning towards a Pink with aspirations of being something 'more'.

What's the age range for characters? I notice most of the sample characters up are teenagers?

Age can vary from very young to old as heck. However your character needs to be played. The RP is starting in a futuristic hippodrome (as a gold sporting event) so a pink would be there with a gold or violet master or would be employed by the hippodrome itself as a matron or escort (to give some insight). Your pink could be very young or could be very old. What class of pink she stands in is up to you as well. The goal for us is to have a diverse group to challenge the color caste of the society so do as you please within reasonable canon :D
