Utopian Curse Overview

The Utopian Curse island is a holidaymakers paradise. Warm, tropical weather. Lush vegetation.  Miles of perfectly smooth sand beaches and water so clear that you can see for metres. However, it is not called Utopian Curse for no reason. Anyone who arrives on this island almost never leaves. They are forced to live out the rest of their lives on the island. And despite its peaceful seeming nature, the island is filled with danger that make it hard to survive.

It isn't a large island, but it certainly isn't small. It takes about six hours to run from the South to the North, providing that the ground was flat and there were no obstacles in the way. With the same conditions, it takes approximately eight hours to run from the west side of the island to the east side. That said, with obstacles all there, it takes several days to traverse the island. The forested areas are very thick, and it take hours to hack through even the smallest part of it. The Mountains are steep and dangerous to climb. Most people who attempt to climb them are often met with strange accidents that prevent them from reaching the peaks. The wildlife is also very strange, and dangerous. Huge, plant eating beasts roam the grasslands, attacking anything who attempted to hunt them. And to hunt these huge, strange beasts are even bigger predators who would look at a human as if they were a piece of snack. Without a means to defend yourself, the best choice is to just run. Despite the strangeness of the island, it may fool someone into believing that they were stranded somewhere on Earth. Lining the perfect, sandy beaches are miles of coconut trees. And that isn't the only similarity. Many survivors usually claim to find something, no matter how small, that they recognise from where they had come from.

Not only is the island ecology strange and alien, but there is something about the island itself. As stated before, it is almost impossible to leave. If a character has a means to either fly or get into space, they would encounter fierce storms if they climbed too high or flew too far. The storms would come from nowhere, and are usually not visible to the island itself. The fierce winds would drive them back towards the island. The same thing happens when someone attempts to swim or sail off of the island. As soon as they get a certain distance, they usually experience strong storms that drive them back, or break up the boat and perhaps even drown the passengers if they are unlucky, though they usually find themselves back at the island. If people attempt to fly or sail away from the island in an attempt to find land, there is a small chance that they wouldn't encounter any storms. Instead, what they find is even more bizarre. The other side of the island. So if a person flew or sailed South from the island, they would end up on the North side. There is no obvious explanation as to why this happens. The world simply couldn't be that small, but there is no way to find out. It also seems that, far from shore, there lurks a huge and dangerous creature that attacks any ship or boat that attempts to leave the island. There are also some signs of an ancient civilisation, including some temple ruins that appear to have been already raided. They hold nothing of interest, but it appears that some ancient race was once on the island. Did they die out, or find a way off? On the South East of the island stands an old, crumbling lighthouse that is hard to get to without flying or sailing. Again, it is not obvious why the lighthouse is there, or who had built it.

Perhaps it was one of the other survivors? There may be others out there, on the island. But do you dare seek them out? They could be as dangerous as the local wildlife. They might be as likely to attempt to kill you on sight as they are to try to be your friend. You won't know unless you try.

Utopian Curse Maps

gallery_2_54_133511.jpg

This is a map of the island that is featured within this Roleplay. It is made in a similar style to the Craethiel Kingdom map. It is likely that most characters will not immediately know their way around the island, and unless they come across another character that has explored the island, they will need to explore it before they would have a map of the island. It is currently only in black and white because it is still somewhat in the process of being made, because it is still very open for additions such as character camps.

There will be some locations within Utopian Curse that will not be mentioned in this extra information; that is because they are placed within their own extra information so that they can be linked back to this one, as it would be far too much information to contain to this single extra information. Despite being in their own extra information, they are linked to Utopian Curse but may have their own limits in place. As the extra information must be approved before it is added to this list, the limits must be observed to be able to roleplay in Utopian Curse, without exception.

      Blackberry Falls Extra Information
      It is the modern day, and the place this roleplay finds itself in is Blackberry Falls, a city situated on a large island that is perhaps a little larger than the United Kingdom. This fair, bountiful land is split between two separate countries; Ashea, and the United Federation of Families which has settled in on the island in recent years. The Capital cities, Blackberry Falls and Xantall’ar, sit on opposite ends of the island, separated by other, smaller cities and a wide expanse of forest that dominates the island. The cities have settled on the southern end of the island, and just to their north is a large cliff that runs from one side of the country to the other. Beyond the cliffs is the rest of the island, dotted here and there with towns and villages. The river that spills down the cliffside splits into two large rivers, with one headed towards Blackberry Falls and the other heading into UFF country, so that both reap the benefits of the strange water.
      For the moment, the relationship between the two countries is an uneasy peace. They mostly stay out of each other’s business, although there is limited trade between the two. Between the borders of the two countries is a de-militarised zone, that prevents either side from being able to send any kind of military into the other country. This has helped maintain the delicate truce that the two countries share.
      Blackberry Falls is a large, modern city, filled with large skyscrapers, which displays the wealth and development of this human metropolis. One of the things that Blackberry Falls is famous for is its BlackBerries, due to their high quality and abundant Blackberry harvests. There is something in the water of the island that causes the BlackBerry bushes to grow far larger than normal, and the berries to be the most delicious in the world. It also helps the inhabitants of the island stay healthy and helps them live longer.
      The time of Blackberry Falls is the early 21st century, and despite the violent economic climate, Blackberry has fared extremely well. This is largely in part thanks to the trade that Ashea has had with the UFF and their major corporation, Keza Corp. Ashea has their own corporation, EDAN Industries, that has filled Blackberry Falls with technology that suppasses any that other human countries, although it is a few steps behind what Keza Corp has been able to produce, because the UFF tends to keep their own technology to themselves. With the combination of the trade with the UFF, their own self-sustaining ways and EDAN Industries, Ashea has remained prosperous while other economies have faltered. 
      For humans, Blackberry Falls has turned into a technology empire, and there are thousands of jobs available for the citizens to apply for. They are also in the lead for the latest medical technology for humans, and it is home to one of the most state of the art human hospital, Blackberry General Hospital. The UFF is home for the most advanced technology in the world, and they actually have the most advanced hospital in the world, Keza Corp Hospital, however due to their restricted borders and lack of interest in sharing what Keza Corp produce, their technology (medical or otherwise) is not available to those in Blackberry Falls. Even if it was available, the UFF is made up of species that have a different biology to humans, Neko’s and other species, so the technology would not even be of any use.
      As with any city with a large population, crime does still exist and there is even a Black Market there. However, Blackberry Falls keep their prison population low by only putting the most violent offenders in the state-run prison. This keeps the most violent people off of the street, while leaving in peace those who do something as benign as smoking weed in their own home. 
      Blackberry Falls is a place where people come and seek their fortunes. Everything about the city is something that most people can only dream of. However, like every city in the world, it has its poor, run-down areas where people live in poverty and where the crime rates are the highest on the entire island. For those who are unable to make the fortunes they dreamed of, this is where they usually end up. The city does all it can to improve the areas, however with the current rising house prices due to the demand, there is little they are able to do apart from support numerous charities that help out in the impoverished areas. 
      One thing that the UFF and Ashea do share in common is that both of them are quite strict when it comes to immigration and customs. The UFF is a lot more strict than Ashea, with the chances of getting in if you’re a non-UFF species being only slightly higher than the chance of getting to the moon as an untrained Astronaut. Ashea is less strict than the UFF, however they have similar restraints as Australia and New Zealand, especially when it comes to the importation of food which has the potential to destroy their agriculture and bring the economy to its knees. The currency that is used in Blackberry Falls, is the Blackberrian Dollar. It’s one of the most valuable human currencies on the planet, which speaks of their strong economy.
