Hiya! Welcome to the first Diving RP (I think) on BYC!!! RULES: No fantasy, you may create a new species of marine wildlife, but don't make it too fancy. You can't have dolphin pets that have special features, they could have little features that help you tell them from other dolphins, but nothing weird and unrealistic like a "Glittering Red" Dolphin. You do not have special powers. All BYC Rules Apply You can only have 1 pet STORYLINE: A man named Simon left college to do some research about diving, But he finds himself entering a big adventure. He finds some friends (you guys), including Oceana, the first person he met on Valka Island. Her grandpa, John Ericson built a hut and a house big enough for a giant party. They dive in various locations, befriending dolphins, helping sick animals, solving underwater myths, and swimming with sharks, they will embark on a dangerous yet wonderful journey to explore and try to find new types of fish. PLACES: Valka Island- The place you live on, basically an abandoned island. You can dive around here to see some colorful fish and mostly harmless sharks. Ciceros Strait- Infested with Great White sharks and the legendary shark Thanatos. North Coast of Canada- Greenland sharks call this their home, so be careful! There are lots of other fish like Narwhals, Belugas, and Chinook Salmon. Weddel Sea- No dangerous animals, just beautiful Sea Angels (yes, its a type of marine wildlife) and a whole bunch of other things. Cortica River- A freshwater river with alot of valuable stuff on the ground, filled with pirahnas, caimans (a type of croc) and electric eels. Zahhab Region- In the daytime, a beautiful coral filled place filled with fish of many colors, at night, sharks patrol the area waiting for a meal... Zahhab Region Depths- These depths have amazing fish that glow, with giant squid and sperm whales and octopuses and some dolphins... Basically lots of cool fish can be seen here!
