Thinking of doing a cyberpunk themed game, though I am definitely going to need help with coding.
This is probably going to be omegaverse. But you can pick which dynamic your ROs have, except Liko, he is always an Alpha.
Once long ago there lived three separate bands of demons. They created a city and split into Three great Houses. The rule of each House was very strict. Each having their own customs and religious beliefs.
Each House was held into place by one Head of house. With smaller demon and vampire clans gathered under them dubbed, The Noble Tens, these demons and vampires ruled over Tihia, eventually joined by ambitious cyberized humans. But even though there were the three houses there was one select species that did not condone the methods of the demons. The Dragons. They were led by a clan that was noble and true, The Red Bane was the home to the Red Bane dragon species. But all dragon clans answered to them.
The Dragons took over the Haverna lands, making the wastelands their own. Eager to eradicate any and all demon kind they devised a plan to hunt down each and every Demon, and vampire, in sight. Human corpos helped the dragons in the war just to betray them and steal their riches in order to climb the social ladder normally reserved for demons and vampires of the Impaler clan.
This led to the Event, in the year 2007 the first of many wars raged between the corporations created by the three noble houses and the Dragons. The Event ripped through Tihia City and left the population reeling.
Years later cybernetic enhancements became the norm and resistance movements began to pop up in the form of musical based metal and rock bands called Guitair Heroes, as well as other underground movements and gangs, determined to stop the oppression by the Noble Houses. This resistance is met with brute force every time.
The War is still raging but media won’t cover it…why?
Play as one of several races and species. As well as social classes and RPG style classes.
Technisis: The term for the cybernetic enhancements one can gain.
Slice A slice is a doctor that works on cybernetically enhanced beings.
Nomads: Those who fight using melee style weapons or brute force, they usually work alone.
Technofluxers: Those who would rather build and take apart weapons, building back something infused with their magical power and essence. They ‘Flux’ their power into the tech.
Breech Crawlers: Those who dive into the Breech, a vast expanse of information and technology powered by magic, basically magical VR internet.
Machinia: Those who specifically use machines to get their point across in a battle, usually by hacking into and taking control of it.
Guitar Heroes: Name pending, Those who use music and other art forms to fight. They usually form bands that act as a team.
Organic Cyborgs: Cyborgs who are 95% either demon or human, they are usually humans or demons whose consciousness has been downloaded into a living cybernetic body unless they have their own body altered and turned cyberized.
Their cyber parts are underneath the organic casing, they have three ports in the back of their necks that allows them hook themselves up to technology or other organic cyborgs
Cyborgs: Those who are fully cyberized, they are faster and more agile than humans but lack the ability to feel certain things any longer. To become a full cyborg you must give up some of your mortality, or in some cases, immortality.
Humans: Most all humans have some kind of cybernetic enhancements, mainly a Cyberstrain, which is their natural brain fused with biotechnology placed inside a brain shaped metallic case. Alongside this most all have net cables in the backs of their necks that they use to dive into the Breech, the internet that uses magic as a power source, machines, databases, weaponry, other kinds of tech or other people’s cyberstrains.
Dragons- ancient beings once said to be lost to time. They have awoken and taken on humanoid form.
Elves- quick footed, quick witted, elves are walking, living, beauty. They usually sport tribal tattoos and live in gangs called clans or tribes.
Fairies joyful creatures, rarely, most are wicked hearted and live as nomads in Haverna. They use magic to twist the Breech to their advantage.
Cat people: Humanoid yet cat like with ears and a tail, they are extremely intelligent. They are usually Nomads or Technofluxers.
Wolf, Kitsune, and Dog people- usually mercs, they’re most employed as Technofluxers, Nomads, and Breechcrawlers. Many enjoy being Guitar Heroes.
Tengu- Living on the fringes of society, nomadic and extra violent, they light shit on fire
Vampire variant races
Impaler These vampires are the oldest on record, though very few are in the Lord social class. Others choose to remain rebels, if only to destroy their enemies in a more traditionally secretive manner.
Carmilla the Carmilla clan is secretive, elusive and hard to track down. They prefer breech crawling into the deepest parts of the breech to other skills. Their mind control power is legendary.
Vladimir the Vladimir clan lives mainly in Solaz as Condonites, they remain in one area and maintain their territory in Solaz through the vampire Technofluxer gang, Alucard.
Armand the Armand clan are a classical musician Guitar Hero gang who kill their human victims with the soul sucking melodies they produce. They then sell these souls to demons for profit.
Methuselah the Methuselah clan is made up of aristocratic vampires and Rockerboys in metal, rock and punk bands alike. They live to oppose the rule of the corpo clan, Impaler and their demon and human allies.
Humans come in several races of their own:
Synths: based after the punk age of Britain , with accents to match.
Apanas An Apana is a very traditional person, honor is everything, based after the Japanese, the language they speak is also called Apana and is basically Japanese.
Tiafrans Tiafrans are based after Haitian and African cultures, most of these men are business executives.

Humans also have other combinations:
Animal Hybrid: Humans with animal dna fused with their own dna and matching exotic animal technisis to match. Only the rich can afford these augmentations.
Machine Hybrid They replace as much of their bodies with technisis as they can, this leads to cybermania, a disease that renders the victim insane, but these people do not care.
Bug Hybrid Humans with bug like exotic technisis sculpted into their nervous systems. The prettiest augmentations are only affordable by the rich, the poor usually can only legally afford basic augmentations, such as antenna or one set of thin wings.
Social Classes and basic Classes will be listed if enough interest is shown.
For now the MC can be:
A merc freshly arrived to Tihia City from Haverna.
A Noble, or one of the lesser corporate powers, a Noble Ten.
Choose between human, vampire, or demon variants for now. Animal hybrids etc down the line.
Take over a Corp or take them down.
Survive the streets of Tihia City.
Play male, female, non binary, intersexed, genderfluid.
Gay, straight, ace or otherwise.
Gender is limitless in this deep future.
There will be at least ten ROs of varying races, species and social classes but to start only four will be available.
Corporations so far
Biomass Corp A micromachine and bioengineering company that is standing in the spot the Noble House of Staz left behind. Biomass was previously under the uniform name of STAZ Corp. Once the Guitair Heroes murdered their boss, the researchers formed their own corporation. This corp is the most unstable of them all, due to the fact whomever takes over and jacks into Staz’s old research facility can effectively take control of this company in five seconds flat, as their new boss.
Biomass Corp, The mind is a terrible thing to waste.
Cybernautics Corp: A corporation run by one of the lesser Noble Houses in a group called The Noble Tens. The Noble Ten house that controls Cybernautics specializes in ocean and deep sea travel. They create cyborg bodies for underwater exploitation and mining jobs.
Cybernautics Corp, where the ocean is still your best friend no matter how deep you go inside it or hard it flows inside you.
Liko Chromeheart Liko, or Demon Wings as is his stage name, was the first Guitar Hero Vampire in the Guitair Hero movement way back in 1920, His band, the symphonic gothic metal band, Bleed For You, was disbanded and his band members, also vampires, were arrested after their fifth album, Like A Surgery, was released. The lead single from the album, titled Love My Skull was the breaking point for the Noble Tens.
Liko gave up his life for his cause when he was gunned down outside his apartment while helping his fellow Guitair Heroes escape to safety only three weeks later. He uploaded his soul to the Breech during this time however and lives on as a Breech Ghost.
Rumor has it one of the heads of the Noble Tens is Liko’s ex lover, and his band was silenced not just because they opposed the government, but because Love My Skull was about Liko’s secret relationship with one of the house leaders.
Liko was one of the Big Five, the Guitair Heroes who inspired everyone who came after and whose death started a revolution. His band escaped from prison and helped the Guitair Hero Riot that just happened several months ago.
He became a legend, everyone who is anyone in the underground has a copy of Like A Surgery.
Personal motto and last words: ”You can’t kill this heart of Chrome…”
Visha Vicki Flicka Chromeheart Visha Vicki Flicka is Liko’s little brother and a Guitar Hero vampire as well. He survived to the current year of 8029 and is the lead singer of a two singer punk rock band called Bloody Biotech. He is secretly working toward getting revenge for Liko’s murder.
Malachite Divedeeper Malachite was the vocalist of the metal band Twisted Baby Murder and later Gutter Tongue. Alongside Bleed For You, Lady Death, Shogun, Mama’s Demons, The Slut Eyes and Machine Spine as well as several solo Guitar Heroes, Malachite helped raid the Maverick and Staz corporations. Malachite was Sizzle Chizzle’s lover, and together, one in the Staz building and the other in the Maverick building, committed murder suicide. His body was recovered and his cyberstrain and soul placed inside a cyborg that is hooked to a machine in the med bay of a Slice’s workshop to keep him alive. The Slice in question is the mysterious, The Doc.
Wolf Father, no known last name Wolf Father is a two thousand year old Natan Demon with cybernetic enhancements and hair that changes color due to his emotions. He is the former rhythm guitarist for Machine Spine. He later became the vocalist of a band called Dying Lotus and became the fifth and most elusive of the Big Five.

He was close friends with the late Zowie Spacedust and is Jiggy Spacedusts Godfather.
Kokosuke ‘Krazy Koko’ Yoshinana The alpha son of the former Corporation giant Yoshinana Corp, Kokosuke, an Apana half demon half vampire with cybernetic enhancements joined Tsukuyomi after his father’s company collapsed. With their help he participated in the Guitair Hero riots after forming a band with a few of his fellow Tsukuyomi called Shogun. His actions caused the word Shogun to stand not just for his band, but for a rebellious person who uses any means needed to get the job done.

See the adult interest check for extra ROs
There are four basic classes, not including skill classes:
Cyber Urchin: You grew up on the streets of Tihia City, you know how she operates, how she breathes, she calls to you. Nobody is more street wise than you are.
The Caravan: You’ve lived in the Haverna lands your entire life, but Tihia City awaits, even though you know every rock and cavern in these dusty plains, every branch and root in the vast forests of Haverna.
Noble: You’re a corporate powerhouse and you know it. Be you from a fallen Threes or a Ten, this city will understand what it’s like to cross the best of the best, if it doesn’t kill you first.
Guitar Hero: Mentioned before, but the GH class is all about staying true to the spirit of rock. You use the Will to Rock as a power that manifests itself into magical melodies. If you lose that will, you lose yourself in the process.
