Metatrooper Capturing a command post for the Republic

Circa year 2020: Mankind accidentally make first contact with seemingly friendly paranormal entities, who then sneakily take over from right under humanity's noses. The otherworldly entities used a wide range of tactics to take over without the use of invasion or brute force. Assassinations, bribery, blackmail, corrupting officials, and so on and so forth were used. Humanity wasn't punched in the face. It was punched in the back of the head. A one-world government called the Emergence Entity was formed. While many questioned how the governments of the world suddenly fused together, it was "explained" away by international unity and globalism. During the time of their arrival, nobody on Earth had a concrete reason why the otherworldly beings appeared and did what they did. Some believed they're here to harvest Earth and the resources while playing humanity like a puppet. Others did believe they have compassion for humanity. While actions speak louder than words, propaganda has muddled the lines between fact and fiction. However, it can be inferred that dissidence has diminished over the 2020s save for pockets of misfits that live in the countryside rather than the cities.

2035: To take back Earth, guerrilla warfare has been deemed a must. The Griffin organization was founded from the remnants of the old world. The founding members were ex-military, yet the membership became much more diverse, expanding it from a mere nuisance to a threat to the Emergence Entity. It is up to a ragtag bunch of misfits to save planet Earth from the paranormal beings' nefarious plans. To Griffin, it wasn't military might that made the paranormals dangerous. It was how manipulative they were. Griffin wasn't just a global organization. It was a mobile one, using the Nemesis; a converted supply craft stolen from the paranormal beings. Griffin took to calling them Xenos to highlight their strange and otherworldly nature. If you're heroic or insane enough to join the resistance, do it or become them! Long live the resistance!

Template for Character Sheets if needed:
Name:
Country of origin:
Class (AKA Specialty):
Appearance: (Description or picture, though a picture says a thousand words).
Bio: (At least a paragraph's worth.)
Personality: (Like bio, at least a paragraph's worth. Optional, but recommended.)
List of starting primary classes:
● Apothecary: Mending with medicine or murder with toxins
● Bombardier: Explosive or machineguns
● Commando: Close quarters battle or reconnaissance
● Deadeye: Sniper or gunslinger
By the way, because of permadeath, I allow up to three character sheets
TLDR: Otherworldly beings took over the planet! Fight back and save our freedom!

Hiya, this is a collab between @Ubermensch and I. If you're interested and have any questions, don't hesitate to DM either of us.

An X-com style RP? Nice.

What's your expected activity level? / How often do you expect people to post?

Hey there! Nice to see someone interested.

If it were up to me, I'd prefer a weekly post. But I have to check in with the GM to make sure.

Ah yes I almost forgot to mention, you do know that there will be a minimum paragraph requirement and that observing proper grammar and punctuation is needed for this RP right? Because if not, I'm afraid I can't let you join.

Yep, I can meet the minimum writing requirements.

Class idea:
Heavy Support - Armed with a LMG/cannon and a grenade launcher. Specializes in supporting/suppressive fire or flashbang & smoke grenades.

Most excellent! By the way, your idea could also be a specialization of our Bombardier class. But thanks nonetheless!

I am interested
The apothecary class seems interesting

Do I need to have any previous knowledge of XCOM lore to join?
And as I understand it, 1 post per week is acceptable?

Ah yes! I'm glad you liked the name of one of our classes. It's not an XCOM-style game without idiosyncratic classes.

@unicorgi It'll depend. Perhaps if you can PM Metatrooper and me about it, we can judge it once the RP is up.
