    ---This roleplay is a heavy work in progress, and more information will be listed here as the core concept reaches its completion. Beware this story is expansive, with political intrigue, themes of death and loss, tragedies of war, and if love could be found amidst conflict. That said, this is a mecha RP with lots of love and references of the genre tossed in. Please do not worry though, the main focus will not be the intricacies of how the mechas work, nor will this story be filled with techno dribble. This story is first and foremost about the characters who pilot these suits, their struggles during war, and how they develop. If you have any questions please feel free to ask!---

    Mood

    With great expectations and the rapid decline Earth's health, Humans leave their mother planet to begin a new life in space colonies. However, this quickened fall of the planet's life has led to finger-pointing, fighting... And eventual discourse between the untied nations of the Earth Sphere Union, and the powerful multinational conglomerate NOVA.

    NOVA throughout the years had amassed a great amount of wealth as being Earth's primary supplier in electronics while diversifying into other endeavors such as space travel. Through NOVA's technology, and with monetary backing, they managed to create the first fully self-sustaining space colonies.

    Along with space colonies, NOVA helped standardize the main weapon of war.

    The Mobile Suit

    The year is Astral Age 14-400 amidst years of battles and destruction of several colonies, the Earth Sphere Union stumbled upon something remarkable during their expedition of Jupiter's moon, Europa.

    Signs of a lost civilization, and amongst the ruins of their cities they also stumbled upon three powerful mobile suits known as...

    ARMS

    Within the cockpits of these suits were living remnants of this mysterious civilization, youths known as Seers who held a strong connection to these mobile suits. Though, it was curious, within these machines were two pilot chairs instead of one. From the Seers, the Earth Sphere Union came to learn that these machines needed two individuals to pilot effectively. And so, the search for pilots within the Union began.

    This is the turn of the century, with the Earth Sphere Union on the losing end of a seventeen-year long war, these Alien suits may be the best chance they have to stand a chance against the now militaristic NOVA Federation.

    ---Thank you so much for reading, if this story interests you at all please let me know! As stated above, this is a work in progress, most of the heavy work is taken care of, now it's a matter of organizing it all. To answer a question I am sure most have at this point, yes you can play either a Pilot or a Seer. If you need clarification or need help planning character please reach out! I will help the best I can.---

    Setting

    [​IMG]

    Turn Century - ARMS is set in a futuristic alternate universe to our own. In this world, there are two major factions that govern...

    The Earth Sphere Union, (E.S.U) which is comprised of the different nations on planet Earth coming together to form a council of sorts. The formation of this coalition was primarily due to a changing political climate, and the fear of NOVA's rise to power.

    The NOVA Federation, (N.F.) once a technological conglomerate, the N.F. has amassed enough power and monetary value to rival the different countries of the world as a whole. Through numerous armed conflicts and after the start of the Great Galactic War, NOVA has developed into a more militaristic state.

    Though pockets on Earth are still habitable, due to global warming, and the delayed action of the E.S.U., The world looks quite different...

    The ice caps melted, ocean levels rose and a good portion of median became inhospitable for humans to thrive. Entire cities are now claimed by the Earth's relentless waves. With Earth's decline, this has led to humans looking to space for settlement.
