After several hard weeks on the boat, the Mallrats have reached an island they never saw on any map.
WIth no more fuel to return, they have to find a way to restart their lives here. They have found their way to an old government facility, but what it was used for, nobody knows just yet.
In fact… they don’t even know if they are alone on this island…

Join the Mallrats as they venture into this new life, not knowing what lies in store for them.

BACKGROUND:

  1. Upon joining, please provide your birthday (date and month; the birth year might be different for you and your character, depending on their age) - we want to congratulate you!

  2. You can only “become” one character. You’re able to pick a character for youself, choosing from pending members and available characters list. If you have a child, you’ll be responsible for them too, though.

  3. If you haven’t posted in two months, you will become a pending member. If you fail to post in a month after that, your character will be set free for the next person interested to take.
    However, please note that if you fail to post for periods of more then two weeks in a row several times, within a period of three months, without having asked the tribe starter for extended leave, they may also decide to set your character free.

  4. If you know you won’t be able to post for a period of time, you should ask tribe leaders to put you on extended leave. This way we preseve your character.
    After an extended leave, the member has to post at least twice weekly for a period of atleast 2 months before being allowed to go on extended leave again. Failing to post weekly for 2 months after an extended leave will result in the character being set free

  5. Once you’re accepted as a member, please indicate your member status (show which person you are) in your signature or avatar. If your username matches your Mall Rats - a new hope persona, then it won’t be necessary.
    For example if your username is Maya and you have become Kandy here, it’d be nice if you write “Kandy” in your signature or have an avatar in which we can see Kandy.

  6. For the first month, it’s your trial period here. If you don’t post or just behave very out of character, then the Mall Rats reserve the right to vote you out.
    If you’re voted out, you can always apply for a different character 1 more time and have a trial month again.

  7. Please write your posts in first person and present tense (instead of: “May walked into her room, sat to the bed and closed her eyes” please use. I walk into my room, sit on my bed and close my eyes"

  8. We respect other each other because MALL RATS are a family. This means other tribe members will be heard out and replied to in a civil manner, especially regarding OOC (out of character) problems (since in-character fighting is part of the game, as long as it stays in character). Mall Rats live alongside other tribes and try our best to get along with them. That also means, Mall Rats won’t start a fight. But we will defend ourselves if necessary.

  9. The Mall Rats believe in democracy. That means all the important decisions will be met by voting on them.

  10. YOU DONT MAGICALLY APPEAR BACK TO THE MALLRATS PREGNANT: to have a baby, you first need to have a relationship with someone in the tribe. And no babies found on the streets either.

  11. Per calender year, only 2 people may give birth in the Tribe, to make sure we don’t die of starvation. Please ask the Tribe starter about the planning of a future baby.

  12. If you request a character, please take notice that you can only play a character up to +5 years of your own age. In case the character is younger than you, there is no age limit.

  13. Use proper English.

Zan woke up buried under the stones – As it was stones she had limited oxygen, adrenaline is what got her out of the grave. As she was trying to get out, some people were passing and heard her and ran over helping to move the stones – effectively saving her. They replaced all the stones as though nothing had happened at the site as they didn’t want it to look like grave robbing.

At first she wanted to go back to the Mall, but as she recovered, she found she loved living with the tribe that had helped save her, and made a new life with them – not forgetting her old life as such but happily moving on with her new tribe. They moved around every so often, to see new places, meet new people, some of the tribe moved on and decided to stay in certain locations, and sometimes new people joined them so the tribe was constantly changing.
She lived happily with them for a few years before meeting a new tribe who could offer her some of the things she had been missing.

BACKGROUND:
After Patsy was caught spying she was sent to the work camps. Never before had she felt so little and alone. Everyone looked out for themselves not like they did in the mallrats, where everyone looked out for each other. She missed the mallrats, even missed Alice and Ellie who had convinced her to spy on the chosen. During her time there she always wondered if the mallrats were still managing under the control of the chosen.

When the camp was left unguarded and people left she wanted to make her way home as well. Home to the mall, home to the mallrats. She never got that far, before she once again was taken prisoner by some odd people dressed in black with a T in their faces. At the evenings she would sit in the sand using a sharp stone to engrave the mark of the mallrats on her hand. Never forget.

Life took its turn, one day she found herself away from the others, saw a few cages on the other side of the beach, in them there were a few familiar faces. One of thoose faces belonged to the man she never again wished to see. The man who had ruined all of their lifes, the man who tore her away from her family. The man who took Cloe away. She suddenly felt more afraid now, that she knew who was near, then when she had not known anything about it

HAIR COLOR: black
EYE COLOR: green-hazel

HABITS: Becoming an accidental hero
SECRET(S): not telling Josh or anyone they weren’t actually blood related
DISLIKES: Settling in one place, caring too much about anyone, being trapped on a non-resourceful, small boat with too many people….feelings?
FEARS: The Island
STRENGTHS: Friendship, Dependability
WEAKNESSES: Women? Wanderlust.
PERSONALITY: Kind loner who is always looking out for numero uno

BACKGROUND:
Slade was born the second child of teenage sweethearts. His old fashioned, maternal grandparents divided the family leading Slade’s family into a weaved web of confusion and agony. It was six years that Slade hated his mum before finding out she wasn’t biologically his mother at all, though she did abandon him for life with her real son, Josh. He found this out during the early year of the virus while reading secrets his father had stashed away in their attic. Slade had always been with his true mother and his sister was actually his sister, unlike the little brother he’d resented for taking away who he thought truly was his mum. Why anybody ever needed to lie was crazy to him, but the virus made sure nobody could answer the why. His sister had been arrested and taken away for trying to get answers about the virus and after his parents were dead and gone there was no one left to give answers.

Alone in the world, Slade left his little town of white picket fences and finally got to adventure like he always wanted.

[details=Keep Reading]First stop was finding the little brother he never knew. And he took care of the little guy for awhile, trying to regain a sense of family til slavers separated them. In trying to locate Josh, Slade found himself the mark of bounty hunters.

They captured him and kept him in a cave til his bounty was paid. Imagine his relief when he saw his new slaver, his own sister. She was alive and well and had put a bounty on him as it was the safest way for her to locate him in the grit that became the City.

They stuck together wandering small town to small town from time to time away from the madness of big cities until she contracted the virus. He didn’t know what to do but watch yet another member of his family perish. He thought it was only a matter of time before he and all of humanity were finally exterminated like their parents. That was until he heard about a City with a known cure for the virus. And then he stumbled upon his brother there who was a deranged tribe leader.

The rest is current history. He based himself in Liberty, became an accidental hero, met Ram, Ruby, Ebony, and the Mall Rats, and tried to save Mega from himself. Then he found himself with no motorbike and trapped on a boat that landed he and the others on an island in the middle of god knows where.

He’s still looking out for number one, but sometimes that means looking out for others around you too.[/details]

Ding dong! Extended profile post delivery! :kissing_heart:

Disclaimer: I ripped most of this off my old profile from my brief time in Mall Rats so, if you spot anything in here that doesn’t fit with the current narrative, just lemme know!

Also, a bit of confusion surrounding the dates of birth? I’m seeing some conflicting numbers between the posted profiles… :disappointed_relieved:

A New Hope

Two weeks… two very long weeks have we been trapped on the damned boat. No surprise there that even Gel was so anxious to get off of it, that she came along with a group of us to explore the island, hiking through plenty of overgrowth to get to the strange building we had see from afar.
“Stay with mommy, honey” I tell my daughter as we’re almost there.
Brady fusses, after weeks of having to ‘‘play quietly’’ and little to no running around, she’s finally on shore again, eager to stretch her little legs.
The building seems abandoned, and after trying several sealed of doors, we’ve finally found one with a lock in it.
Who ever thought I would be so grateful for Lex and his ability to break into anything with just one of Gel’s bobby-pins.
I pull Brady closer to me and stay close to Lex’ side.
Who knows what we will find when we’re inside…


#20

I’d only been on this Island around 3 weeks, I’d been moved from a different facility as apparently the Island was in need of more females… Great!
Of course as a kid, the idea of being stuck on a remote Island, where the sun was shining and you had a view of the sea was a dream, but in reality it was far from that.

The last year my life had changed so much, I still remember the day that the Techno’s had arrived at the Amazon camp, they weren’t shy about their intentions and we didn’t stand a chance.

I looked around as we were being led towards the caged area, before turning to look at the girl walking next to me… Danni, I’d met her after the Techno’s invaded, she’s great and we’d become fast friends, as long as she wasn’t talking about rules and commandments or whatever she sometimes started going on about of course.

“The cage’s are bigger than I thought” I whispered to Danni “I’m glad we’re on the outside of it rather than the inside” I added as I rearranged the collar of my uniform slightly, this heat was something else, you’d think the Techno’s would at least have a summer uniform!


#21

" schsch, everything will be fine " i whisper at the bundle in my arms and sit back down on the fire, next to Ruby.
Some of the others have started to discover the island and the rest is checking on the boat and try to build up something, which should be little camp. so i decided to stay here with Ruby and the little ones, At least Lottie, Sammy and Mouse are handsome and spend their time with playing on the beach. Bray jr. at the other hand need a bit more attention at the moment, so i stand up and walk arround with him from time to time.
i just hop that the others would come back safe and with good news.
