The shutters covering one windowed wall begin retracting as you and your new crewmates slowly shuffle out of the briefing room. Despite the tinting of the thick polycarbonate, the rays of the Sun shine through, and the lounge's overhead LEDs begin to dim in response. A couple of your compatriots skip over to the bar, maybe in celebration, maybe to numb the reality of coming five years. You instead opt to plant yourself on the couch facing the windows. The Sun is bright, but despite its brilliance, you can see the bluish globe, swirled with white, set among the stars.

So close, yet so far, Earth was a permanent fixture in the dark skies above the Apollo Memorial Space Centre, always watching over the hundreds working and living there. It had been that way for just about a hundred-and-fifty years, since the Centre had started construction in the 2030s. There were hundreds more living just a train-ride away in Armstrong. Maybe you'd ride down there and have something good to eat before you shipped out to Titan.

Titan - an invisible speck around a dim point of light, at least from Luna. The Martians might have a better view. Titan - The next great leap in human discovery. In orbit around Luna was the LES Christiaan Huygens, your future vessel to the outer Sol system. Your candidacy for the mission was not unexpected - as Freezer Babies, you and the rest of your crew would skip most of the journey in cryostasis, thanks to the nature of your genes. Titan - a far flung land, but not unreachable by the human grasp.

You'd be there soon enough. But, unknown to you, you've already been there.

PARALLEL is, at its core, an RPG about space exploration and the mysteries that come with it; it is about teamwork and the willingness to work together despite each other; it is about the unknown becoming known.

You will play as one of six international astronauts on a deep-space exploration mission to Saturn's moon, Titan. However, something there is waiting for you. I cannot say more.

If interest in this RPG is high and I get more than six applications, I will choose the six strongest characters.

Thank you for reading. If you have any questions, feel free to post them.

Interested... I imagine the characters should be fairly realistic candidates for space exploration, which is to say, rather highly skilled. I would be interested in playing a scientifically inclined astronaut, but I might need a bit more background on just how far humanity has advanced.

Colonies on Mars, the Moon, and Callisto, human gene editing, advanced virtual intelligence... basically the realization of most of the near-future technologies we've predicted for the coming century.

But trust me, you really don't have to know.

I was turned off by potential hyper realism, but immediately excited by the idea of AI!!!

Well there's gonna be a measure of realism involved, but if you're interested in AI, then you're going to like this RP.

Just gonna wait for a couple more people who are interested. There's enough traction here and already more than 6 applicants so I just want to get a larger pool to select characters from than having like 7 applicants and I have to turn a single person away.
