Starting point: it is in Late July of the year 3049 on the planet of Last Chance in and around the city of Hope.
Last Chance is currently in the holdings of a Pirate Kingdom known as the Greater Valkyrate. http://www.sarna.net...eater_Valkyrate
Two of the most notable traits of this would be the the Garrisoning force of Ryan's Rebels 2nd Battalion
and the fact that the planet itself is more of a Matriarchal society. (Note: Think Drow you D&D players)
Hope is little more than an industrial town with a few canneries and a large warehouse section encumbrancing most of the east side, with docks both for shipping and drop ships, surrounded to the north and west by lack luster farm lands.
To join the Role Play, please send me a personal message with your interest and some personal goals you might like to achieve for your character (I.E his or her Hopes and Dreams) also include in this at least one major and minor fear (example: loosing your family or a fear of fire etc) you are welcome to go ahead and post a BIO here, but please wait until you get approved and the go ahead before posting to the Role Play thread.
This story will be heavily Role Play based, especially starting out. There will opportunities that arise that might allow the characters chances at great success for ****** and grab type actions, but please be aware Character Death is very possible as you'll be stuck right in the middle of the Clan Invasion by the Jade Falcons. Mech to Mech combat will be rare and it is highly suggested the characters don't start out with one but for those of you that insist please note wither you are "just a pirate" or assigned to Ryan's Rebels in your BIO. Combats will all be resolved hopefully fairly quickly and without dice interaction. Example: Reese dove quickly behind the over turned table and let off a few shots at his assailants trying desperately to aim at center mass of the one in the lead.
- No clan characters, no spies or any affiliations with said clanners will be tolerated at character creation.
- If you choose to start with a Mech; it will be on planet and in or around the city. It'll probably be damaged in some fashion [GM discretion as to how and what it does] and should be no more than 65 tons. Tank commanders also welcome.
- Use [square brackets] to post Out if Character stuff. If it's short. If you care to elaborate in detail on it please use the tread here to expand on it. Example: Harley couldn't help but think back to that time on the Tharkad with Maj. Cruz [please see "a night to remember" in the Sign Up section]
- No making oneself over powered or grandstanding (This Role Play is about people having fun and being put in sometimes hard and sometimes whimsical moral dilemmas and hopefully come together as a team)
- MOST IMPORTANTLY just have fun, think outside the box and remember it's not real so don't take any or it too seriously, you can always make another character if the worse case happens but please don't rage.
FINAL DISCLAIMER- Also note that there is a slim possibly that the actions and posts herein might later be altered and used as source for an online novel (though chances of such are slimmer than winning the lottery) so all posts will be considered open property in regards to any legal actions against the writer now or future, this also covers the players if they decide publish works based on the content here-in.
