    “THE FUTURE IS UNCERTAIN BUT THE END IS ALWAYS NEAR.” - JIM MORRISON

    Ruin, like beauty, is very much relative to eye of the beholder. Few have the imagination for it — buildings sacrificed alongside lives, innovation is bathed in blood. Some see this as destruction. Others, opportunity. Therein lies Soteria: a city teeming with opportunists, surrounded by those that found that violent delights taste just as delicious as the chaos of shedding all those pesky restrictions they’d once been bound by. The rules of the world are no more, demolished with the governments that once upheld them. The citizens of Soteria stand privileged as pioneers, holding hands over whatever remains of technological advances. Beyond, Salus remains strong as the hungry and poor cherish independence more than shiny new toys and ungodly technological advances.

    Between them, bitterness brews. Both factions, wholeheartedly righteous in their beliefs and values, remain at odds. Their salvation lies within their honesty, and their prayers to whatever gods might be listening serve as their sole protection in their waging, silent war. Time is the only unbiased party, fumbling tales as they are passed down and shredding the truth to ribbons far too fragile to stitch together. Their history may be lost, but one thing remains true:

    Both deny fault for the state of the civilization.

    The benevolent whisper about government conspiracies while those less forgiving scream in the streets that they’d deserved it, that they’d sinned to much or loved too little. Few gave up and stopped fighting, accepting the defeat and the destruction around them. The what, or how, this happened to the world that had once thrived around them can be found — the truth is there, in those whispers and screams. But it comes with a price, and that price is one that none can hope to afford.

    WhatHasRisen is an OC appless group set in the sci-fi inspired city of Soteria, and post-apocalyptic outlands of Salus. The only bond left unbroken between the two are the rumors of what tore them apart.

    Scenes from the Black Tom Explosion, Jersey City, July 30, 1916.

    “On Sunday morning, July 30, 1916, at 2:08 a.m., one of the worst terrorist attacks in American history took place at Black Tom Island, New Jersey, a shipping facility located in New York Harbor. Under cover of darkness, German agents detonated more than 2 million pounds of ammunition that was awaiting shipment to England. The explosion—the equivalent of an earthquake measuring 5.5 on the Richter scale—was felt and heard as far away as Philadelphia and southern Connecticut. Windows were shattered across Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Jersey City, and to this day the torch of the Statue of Liberty remains closed to visitors due to the damage it sustained from flying shrapnel. Amazingly, though dozens of dock workers, fire fighters, and civilians were injured, fewer than 10 people lost their lives in the blast.

    Initially, the cause of the explosion was unclear. Almost before the fires were extinguished, however, multiple explanatory theories were put forth, with hypotheses ranging from the spontaneous combustion of unstable munitions to sparks from a passing freight train. Some initial evidence seemed to point to dock workers who, in an effort to ward off the clouds of mosquitoes that swarmed the waterfront, had carelessly lit smoke pots, sparking fires that subsequently ignited the ordnance. Most Americans, though, goaded by sensational stories in the press, soon began to subscribe to a more sinister line of speculation: that is, that German operatives or sympathizers had blown up the ammunition to prevent it from being shipped to, and used by, the Allies.

    From the outset, Kaiser Wilhelm II and his government steadfastly denied any involvement in the matter. Nevertheless, the extensive media coverage of the Black Tom incident, coupled with other contemporary reports of espionage and sabotage activities on American soil, helped to further turn public opinion against Germany and her allies. Within a year, angered by a series of real or perceived violations of its sovereignty, the United States declared war on the German Empire.

    But this was not the end of the Black Tom Island story.

    After the war’s end, the German-American Mixed Claims Commission—the organization charged with assessing war reparations—launched an inquiry into the cause of the blast. Over the next decade and a half, investigators sifted through a mountain of less-than-conclusive evidence, finally ruling in 1939 that Germany had, indeed, supported the attack. By then, however, with another world war looming, the German government under Adolf Hitler was less than inclined to pay the United States $50 million in damages. Ultimately, another 14 years would pass until the two countries agreed that Germany would reconcile all of its outstanding war reparations claims, including those resulting from the Black Tom explosion. The final payment of the settlement was received in 1979, at last bringing the issue to an overdue, official close. Today, the events of July 1916 are commemorated by a memorial at Liberty State Park in Jersey City, New Jersey, which informs visitors that they are “walking on a site which saw one of the worst acts of terrorism in American history.”

    For contemporary accounts of the Black Tom Island explosion, New York City newspapers such as The New York Herald Tribune and The New York Times serve as an excellent resource. For more recent treatments of the subject, see journalist Harold Blum’s, Dark Invasion: 1915: Germany's Secret War and the Hunt for the First Terrorist Cell in America, which provides a thorough account of covert German espionage and sabotage operations in the United States during World War I. Other noteworthy treatments of the topic include The Detonators: The Secret Plot to Destroy America and an Epic Hunt for Justice (2006), by Chad Millman, and Jules Whitcover’s 1989 work, Sabotage at Black Tom: Imperial Germany's Secret War in America, 1914-1917.” - article by Michael Inman, NYPL

                                        bctgrl   /   stephanie br𝚘wn.

                   it is an incredibly strange thing, to be misplaced in time.  matt has watched a lot of movies about the idea of it   —   being sent to a time and place where you do not belong   —   and he has always thought, perhaps a little haphazardly, that he would adjust to it fine if it happened to him.  he wouldn’t touch anything, wouldn’t talk to anyone he knew, he would just leave things be and play it smart.  on paper, it’s a solid plan.  executed, on the other hand   —

                   matt has only been in gotham for maybe half an hour, and he can’t seem to mind his own business.

                   an attempt is made to keep to the skies.  it’s his safest bet, hiding amongst gotham’s canopy while he thinks of a way to get back home.  somewhere along the line, though, all of that is thrown out the window, and matt can’t even remember what the catalyst was anymore   —   a distant scream, a loud explosion, car alarms blaring, it doesn’t matter.  one moment, he is perched high and trying not to lose himself to his frustrations, and the next, he’s swooping low and knocking civilians out of harms way.  the next few minutes pass lightning - quick   (  sweeping low, eating asphalt, a well - aimed punch that makes his adrenaline boil, and the name robin catching him off guard  ), and by the end of it, his whole body is humming with energy, and he is actually, for once, proud of himself as he retreats before 5 - 0 can show up to the scene.

                   body thrums with restless energy, and matt almost forgets that he is a robin out - of - time, almost forgets that he is a stranger to this city, almost feels at home   —   and then she’s there.  heart - beat hammers for a new reason, and he has to double - take, hoping that he’s making things up and praying that he’s just homesick and losing his mind.

                   he catches the name nightwing before it can roll off of his tongue and tangle itself into the air between them.  robin swallows thickly, entire body going rigid as he stands before steph, and it’s so !#%@ing weird.  he is incapable of just standing and saying nothing, though, so he offers, extremely dryly   (  voice cracking  ),     “   can i help you?   ”

    * ONE YEAR LATER & OLYMPUS HAS RETURNED TO IT’S ROOTS.

    While there had been a cloud of mundane normalcy that settled over town, it never lasts long. It begins with a bullet to the back of the head – One that kills the wife of a Primordial MC member, though it’s clear death was meant to find a man in a cut. It doesn’t take long for paranoia to settle in, residents of the small town turning on one another in an attempt to look for answers – It only escalates the tension, turning this small town into a breeding ground for chaos and violence once again. It shocks no one, as the ER begins to fill with victims and accusations fly. Every high is met with an even lower  low, ones that destroy the MC’s clubhouse and drive a divide between club members and members of the Crooked Bastards Gang. An air of distrust blinds anyone from finding solid answers, until one fateful night, when a bloodied woman stumbles her way back into town with a story to tell…

    OLYMPUS BELONGS TO THE ROGUES. 

    LOMKRP is an original character RP set in the fictional town of Olympus – Place that has always been home to outlaws, criminals, gangs, and most importantly, the Primordial MC. With a new threat looming over the small town, it’s become clear that regardless of your affiliation or loyalty – No one is safe.
