The History of Celestial City

Post by Diannah DeCuir » Wed Oct 14, 2015 11:09 pm

At the beginning of the 21st century, the end of the world came. History doesn't record the name of the man who foresaw it: Some call Him God, some call Him an evil genius. But when the multiverses collided, He was the one who preserved humanity in a place called Celestial City.

Although He did everything He could to avoid saving metahumans, some managed to slip through and make it into His lifepods, where they made it to Celestial City. But even the normal humans who survived were bombarded with significant amounts of cosmic radiation. For the normals, some lived, some died, and some...changed, becoming metahumans themselves, although the overwhelming majority of survivors were "normals". Some metahumans made it to Celestial City themselves, making the long and dangerous trek through Earth's unforgiving cosmic radiation, using various means, from technology to even healing powers.

On Day 1, everyone was surprised to awaken in their new city, with jobs and schools and homes, all arranged by Him. The city came with all the basic needs arranged for the citizens, including farms on the other side of the mountains to provide food, as well as a nuclear power plant for energy. The rest of the Earth is there, but the lingering cosmic radiation makes it uninhabitable for the next century, although people can travel in it for up to a day without any lasting effects. The mountains surrounding Celestial City keep out most of the cosmic radiation.

But even a year after Day 1, people continue to arrive. Some will be other survivors of the end, including survivors from other universes. Some will be aliens from other worlds, who also managed to survive the end in their own ways. And there is always procreation between our citizens, encouraged by Him.

However, people have noticed that metahumans of all kinds, heroes and villains, have started appearing in the city, almost like ghosts from the past, but very real, and dangerous in some cases. They appear for a few minutes, or even a day or two, but then they always disappear again. There are lots of rumors: They return where they came from, or He turns them into food, or He simply kills them for reasons only He knows. But nobody knows for sure.

Speaking of Him, He is still out there... somewhere...


PART 1

Currently, the Disciples of Him run Celestial City with an iron fist. There is a police force which enforces His laws, although His laws have only been limited up to now, with mostly "no killing" and "no stealing". Life has been peaceful under the Disciples. Although there are no laws against being metahuman, there are rumors that metahumans have been captured and taken away, brainwashed to work for the Disciples, or permanently imprisoned if they couldn't be brainwashed. It is also rumored the villainous metahumans seem to be more agreeable with the police who capture them, and are even out on the street within a day, sometimes with police badges. Starting today, all metahumans have been outlawed by the Disciples, meaning they can no longer display their powers in public. (Strangely, the penalty for being metahuman is up to the police officer who makes the arrest).Regardless, there are still metahuman heroes and villains out there. What will they do?

PART 2

"Him" has been revealed: He is a she, and she is Shiva. She has created a court system now, but still retains the right to overrule the courts.

PART 3

After a bloody civil war, Shiva has been ousted and is presumed dead, although Shiva's head was never recovered. Sir Jerry is the current ruler in the interim, until elections are held.
