The sewers and living quarters can be cold places, just as much as the dream of the matrix can be lonely and alienating. It's no surprise those trapped in these places would have thoughts best not shared with others, so here you may express your inner most feelings, either in a notebook, scrap of paper, or online blog.
This forum is to keep track of your threads, thread trackers can be posted here, along with topics "pimping" any open threads you have. Also inside you will find our in character cbox, for quick communications.
Anything in character to have fun, pass the time, and make believe the world isn't the place it is. You're welcome to start your own game or join one already being played, please no repeats though. Just make sure to keep it in character.
The international district is essentially a conglomerate of Asian cultures, and mainly consists of small shops. Despite the presence of several powerful gangs of Exiles, no single interest really dominates in this district.
Westview, more often referred to as the Barrens of the City. The Slums is a dirty, dilapidated place where hope seems a rare commodity but these traits take on a nearly admirable quality when contrasted with the Barrens. Many exiled programs live and "reproduce" here.
These are all the areas inside The Matrix or related closely to it. Here you will find the very edge of Mega City, along with the archived constructs that pre-date many of the former Matrix's, and are not loaded programs such as the jump program or Agent simulation. Like Mega City itself, all the rules of The Matrix apply in these places, as different as they may appear.
Mark IV Sentinel Killer Class Gunship. It is outfitted with eight synchronous turrets, two short range guns, and two laser targeted heavy impact cannons. It can hold up to twelve crew members comfortably, and is fashioned with a crew as crazy as its name.

The flagship of faith, the crew of the Nebuchadnezzar are of the utmost believers. Their mission -like most- is to seek out potentials and recover Redpills, while their personal mission is in search of "the one". A newer ship to the fleet, the crew is still small but the ship large, with plenty of room for anyone strong enough to handle their missions.
A tracking ship, this vessel carried a crew of three but can transport up to ten in total. It is sent out in order to recover any distressed or lost ships. With minimal weapons -2 guns and a single cannon- it's meant to get in and out quick, relying on its powerful scanners to detect ranges farther than most ships, in order for a speedy recovery.
This ship's main function is to house a crew of nine on the outskirts of the fetus fields. Their main objective is to observe potential redpills, more specifically children, in the Matrix. Their coms run silent to protect their cloaked whereabouts, and their only form of communication is through scheduled drops in the Matrix through the mail system. Operating much like an outpost, they only return to Zion every few months.

Set between the border of the "desert of the real", the ruins of cities and human civilization and all that once was, and .01, the machine city. A dangerous "no-man's-land", The Atlas is not a ship, but an observation post, who's crew study a number of things, including machine activity, surface conditions for agricultural purposes, and even the varying options by which peace with the machines may be obtained.
A Class M, Mark I scout ship, The Odyssey is one of Zion's oldest and most trusted scout ships. Traveling gradually through the almost endless sewers and pipe lines of the real, they often spend a month at a time navigating and mapping out the uncharted lines left yet undiscovered.
There are often times instances where ships might either communicate with one another, or even go so far as to physically interact with one another. Be it a fight with sentinels or a jump from a blown EMP, or anything imaginable, this forum provides the very place needed for threads of that nature.
The top level of the city and entrance into the underground tunnel network. The dock is operated and its systems administered by the operators in The Crane Tower. It provides a recharging station and repair area for the hovercraft fleet.
A large cavern below the city itself. This cavern is dedicated to holding religious gatherings for the entire population, and also serves as a last defensive position in the event of a complete invasion by the Machines.
The bottom level of the city. It is dedicated to providing life support, in the form of water, warmth, air, etc., to the city's population. In an ironic twist, the machines that do these tasks are entirely automated, but their human overseers have taken steps to ensure they can never reach sentience.
Seeing as so many canons have a bit of a connection, some established dynamic that is best not left for mere interpretation, we have here a handy-dandy past forum for all your past plotting and threading needs. Feel free to play out a few interactions in any setting (listed in the subtitle of your topic, please), in order to make those connections solid and plots more awesome!

IT IS BELIEVED TO BE THE YEAR 2180. IT HAS ACTUALLY BEEN NEARLY 500 YEARS MORE SINCE THE MACHINES HAVE TAKEN OVER THE WORLD, TURNING MAN INTO LIVING ENERGY SOURCES, BATTERIES FOR THEIR VAST EMPIRE OVER THE WORLD THAT HAS BEEN LAID TO WASTE. THERE IS A GROWING REVOLUTION, MADE BY THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FREED FROM THEIR CONTROL, THE MATRIX THEY HAVE CREATED TO KEEP HUMANS FROM REJECTING THEIR IMPRISONMENT.
THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN FREED OR BORN INTO THE WORLD NEVER KNOWING THE MATRIX, FIGHT TO FREE THE REST OF HUMANITY. IT IS THEIR DUTY TO JOIN IN THE FIGHT, HOWEVER THEY CAN TO FREE ZION AND FREE HUMANITY FROM THE MACHINES. MANY DO NOT BELIEVE IN PEACE, OTHERS BELIEVE ONLY IN BLOODSHED AND TERMINATION, IT IS YOUR CHOICE TO PICK WHICH SIDE YOU STAND ON AND WHAT YOU BELIEVE IN.
