Hey. Let's do a forum role-playing game!
It's mostly a freeform pick-up game. Just come in, make a description for your character, and try to weave yourself in with the story. Not necessarily in that order, either. There are a few rules I'd like to lay down, though. First off, no one can be a specific character from any of the games. No Security Officer/Cyborg/Whatever, no Durandal/Leela/Tycho, no Tfear, no Robert Blake, etc. These must all be ORIGINAL CHARACTERS. I'm planning on using these people (including possibly the other Mjolnir Cyborgs on Tau Ceti) as NPCs who will advance the story. Also, don't just put yourself (or any other "real-life" person) in. Not to mention characters from other stories. Use common sense, OK? Second, no "god-moding." You can't describe what happens to other peoples' characters, only what your character is doing. Third, I'd prefer to keep characters human for now, but once the story gets moving, if someone wants to play a Pfhor, S'pht, Drinniol, etc. (maybe not a Wasp or Looker though), that's awesome. Fourth, STAY SERIOUS. It's ok to have some humor, but, and I hate to say this, the game must NOT devolve into a bunch of "random" jokes and such. I especially don't want to see lame Marathon humor about ventcores and shit. These aren't the mentally-challenged BoBs the SO ran into. Fifth, leave out-of-character stuff out of this thread. If it appears to be necessary, I will make another thread for OOC discussion so we can bounce ideas around before they become "official" here. More rules might be made as I deem appropriate.
With that said, here goes nothing.
We are a group of "BoBs" who have found ourselves trapped in a section of the UESC Marathon during the Pfhor attack and Durandal's subsequent manifestation of his Rampancy. We might not be as mighty as the Security Officer, but we can take care of ourselves if we keep our eyes open. Based on terminals we've come across, chance encounters with other survivors, and the sounds of sporadic gunfire, we think there may be other pockets of resistance we can join with the ultimate goal of escaping from the Marathon. There is even rumor of a man named Robert Blake on Tau Ceti who wants to do more than just resist. But whom can we really trust? No one knows what is happening with the ship's AIs, and they were the ones we relied on most in peacetime. How long will it be before our meager ammunition supplies are exhausted? Is it even safe on Tau Ceti?
No one is responding on the communications terminals. We will have to find the answers on our own.
