“Paradise is just a cryosleep away”

...

Pioneers, innovators, and souls both brave and intrepid... welcome. We here at Goldberch Tech have information of great magnitude to share with you. The brilliant minds behind our greatest undertaking yet have accomplished something revolutionary. They have designed and constructed a spacefaring vessel capable of safely transporting a large number of colonists to the distant goldilocks planet dubbed “Elysium”. It is no secret that in the year 2107 Goldberg Tech purchased this planet from the Mercantile Federation of America. It is also no secret that over the past five years, a special assignment has received both great attention and heavy funding. Now, in the year of 2112, we are ready to announce the true nature of this once closely guarded enterprise. We are ready to announce... Project Elysium. In late 2113, our vessel, the Sublimity, will take to the stars, with 5,000 passengers along for the ride. Goldberg Tech wants you, the most exceptional of your world, to join us. Pioneers, innovators, and souls both brave and intrepid... welcome to the future. Welcome to the birth of mankind’s single greatest achievement. Welcome to Project Elysium.

...

Congratulations, pioneer. You have been selected for what is undoubtedly the most important event to have ever occurred in human history. You will not only be a living and breathing witness to history as it unfurls, but you will be instrumental in ensuring the success of this great mission. Below you will find a brief set of guidelines laying out for you what to expect during your stay aboard the Sublimity.




...


So! Welcome to this thing here. In case it wasn't obvious, you players are going to be the aforementioned brave and intrepid souls aboard the Sublimity as it carves its way through the stars. The two of us have done a small bit of worldbuilding regarding the state of Earth to get you guys going, but technology is more clearly defined with just a bit of wiggle room for creativity. Find information on that (and much more!) once the OOC gets put out. For now, we'll treat you lucky folk to some equally important information.



General Rules

Standard guild rules apply. Remain respectful to your fellow roleplayers, and if you've got beef with them, take it out of the roleplay, or shoot us a PM regarding your issues. Saying that, trolling, insults, slurs, and the like will not be tolerated in either the OOC or the IC - unless you're in character. Just keep the OOC and IC worlds separated; your issues are not your characters, and vice versa.

It should go without saying that Mary/Gary-Sue characters or behaviour will not be allowed. This also includes meta-gaming, god-modding, and bunnying.

Please remember that this roleplay requires applications. Only post your characters in the characters tab once they've been accepted by either @MiddleEarthRoze or @BurningCold.

We will require a post in the IC at least every 7 days. If you require an extension please let us know in advance. This can be done via the OOC or by PM.

Failure to post in 7 days will result in a warning - doing it again will result in your character being removed from your power and given NPC status, though an opportunity to make another is available. Doing so a third time will lead to your expulsion from the roleplay. Please note that we will take this case by case, as sometimes you can't help being offline for a while without explanation.

Posting rules:

No coloured speech, links to visual aids/music, or pictures of your character.

As an advanced roleplay, correct grammar and spelling is required. Typos here and there won't be an issue, but we won't allow constant mistakes. Please also avoid pointless filler sentences, and be sure to write something substantial and worth reading. We don't need half a paragraph dedicated to your character going up a set of stairs (Yes, I've seen that before.) - make sure your writing has a point to it, be it character interaction, impacting the story, or even inner monologue-ing.

If you're having a conversation with someone(s), make it into a collab so you're not clogging up the IC.


...


So there you have it, folks! Not counting us GMs, we'll be looking for a minimum of 6 players to begin, capping out at 12. Y'all have the option of submitting two characters total, though one is just fine. That won't be a factor that helps or hinders your chances of being accepted, obviously. As previously mentioned, stay tuned for that OOC with info on the tech as well as the state of the world. There is not, however, anything so significant as to prevent all of you from brainstorming characters, if that is your wish.

Do be aware, as a final note, that this RP won't be shying away from vulgar language, violence, or dark themes. Don't be gratuitous though! We're all here to enjoy ourselves, no reason why that luxury can't extend to our characters as well sometimes.

Toodles for now!

As discussed, I'll brainstorm some ideas, but I will have to see how I manage the current RP load with the new job. I will be following along, regardless!

@Banzai Tracers I will direct you to not one but two sections of the interest check that answer your question.

Are you still looking for more members? I'm interested and willing to wait for the OOC to come up to let us know how to build characters but had a brief couple questions.

Are you allowing synthetics?

Are neurological-based implants a possibility?

And are you willing to reveal more details on the paragraph you seen describing climbing stairs?

We certainly are still looking for new members! The more the merrier.

Synthetics (or robots) will be a part of the universe, but we won't be allowing characters of them. Strictly human.

Are neurological-based implants a possibility?


Absolutely! More information will be available with the OOC, but it's fair to say that if you can think of a body part, there'll be a cybernetic enhancement for it.

And are you willing to reveal more details on the paragraph you seen describing climbing stairs?


It was extremely tedious, and I do wish I could remember where I saw it, haha. Let's just say there was about a sentence dedicated to each step paired with pointless inner monologuing. *shudder*

@ihinka

Hey! As we're wanting the CS to look as much like a dossier or colony case file as possible, we'll only be allowing static images, so no GIFs please.

there goes the adventures of Do'Karth in space

I haven't started my CS yet, but I have ideas I've been kicking around for the past couple days I'll start committing to paper, so to speak, hopefully tonight!

All of you have inadvertently given me the perfect idea for a character. But be prepared for legitimate insanity.

One last question though because it will actually decide whether I join or not: Are images of the character an absolute requirement?

I still need to condense her history to a 'brief spot on...' and maybe decide on any physical disabilities. Plus I'll have to wait for the OOC for the enhancement options, cuz I definitely want her to have some And the skills will come with that as well. But I thought I'd post it so you can see what I'm going for.

@Dr Catfish@ihinka I actually knew somebody with that name before. Pronounced like Queeva.

Also, Mr. Dr. Catfish sir, I'm not so sure I understand how the inclusion of a single image would make or break your desire to partake in the roleplay, seems a little drastic to me.

But to answer your question, yes an image should be included.

@BurningCold

Well you see; I prefer describing my characters in vivid detail so finding a realistic image which would suit even the dossier's even cursory elements. Also, I don't own photoshop so something like photo altering is hard as shit. (That and when it comes to matching my characters with pictures I'd like to be a perfectionist and won't alter my character to match a ref of someone elses art, just goes against something inside me.)
