From the cold waters of Jamaica Bay a misshapen head arises. Followed by broad and blunted shoulders, then chests and arms. At last legs carry it out onto the shores.
Massive and tremendous, thirteen feet tall and fifteen hundred pounds of sludge, mud and slime. Seaweeds dangle from its bulk. Dim eyes glow sinister yellow, animated by some otherworldly force.
Another follows it. Then another. Then hundreds of great muddy beasts arise and stride toward the shores. Then thousands until it seems the floor of the bay has risen up in revolt against those who dare to dwell near it.
In then end roughly three and a half thousand creatures of clay march through the small woods and onto Belt Parkway. Traffic comes to an halt with the sound of smashing bumpers, curses and blaring horns.
The clay beasts, known as Terracruor to the Court, turn their evil eyes upon the growing string of halted and crashed cars. Fists form into blades, hammers, and spikes. A silence falls over the parkway.
Moments later it is shattered by the mangled screams of humans, crunch of metal, and other such destruction as the Terracruor begin their savage assault. Ripping apart any human they can lay their hands upon their eyes sparkle with evil glee.
In less then a minute those who could escape, have escaped and the Terracruor begin to advance upon the densely populated residential and commercial areas further inland.
911 calls poor in, youtube videos begin streaming, texts fly, and before two miniutes have passed the world knows of the assault.
NYC awaits its heroes.
[[ This is a OPEN RPG. That means anyone can post here, just drop in and do your thing. This is a little different style, there is no OOC thread, just this one. All the rules are contained within this OP and everything after this is the interaction thread itself. Consider it like a location thread.
Its an 'interaction styled' RPG. That means there is an opening long post, and after that its meant to be shorter, faster interaction styled posts where you RP with someone else. Of course you are free to drop long posts if you like, but don't feel you need to by any means.
Standard CVnU rules apply.
The Terracruor have three tons of strength, and reform from wounds such as destroyed legs, arms, torsos or heads. However the 'Life Matrix', a ether energy construct that animates them can be destroyed by powerful electric blasts or an explosion that completely destroys their body.
Everyone feel free to NPC the Terracruor, but try to avoid no-selling them too hard. They are suppose to be tough, strong and in vast numbers.
This RPG isn't going to go on and on. It will have an ending, and that ending will be canon to the CVnU. The NYC thread will be updated with the results, and the Court of Arcani will react to the happenings here. This ones for keeps ;-)
Have fun, and if you have any questions I will be on my 'Eagle_of_the_East' account! ]]
