"To the stars and beyond."

The winds of change have arrived.

For the last solar decade, the Phaeton Empire has been at war with the Kothar. Countless souls have been lost, and planets have been completely wiped off the map. Lush, verdant fields have turned to ash, soaked in the blood of friend and foe alike. The war rages on, but the people grow tired; weary of fighting. They demand peace at gunpoint–the Phaeton Empire teetering on the brink of civil war–with their little rebellions, forcing the military to divert troops from the battlefield to rip root and stem before it has a chance to spread like wildfire.

But this isn't the tale of cocky rebels with itchy trigger fingers; no, this is the tale of Phaetonia! You are a member of the PNSC Arcona, a Murane-class destroyer, currently stationed off the coast of Vortu Prime to receive prisoners of war–pesky rebels that the Army didn't put down–destined for a penal colony. However, as the destroyer leaves for the penal colony, dangerous whispers begin echoing through the halls. The prisoners demand blood–the very blood of the crew serving aboard the ship.

Good thing you brought your las pistol with you.


Hi there!

If you're reading this, then let me explain a few things. Firstly, this will be a roleplay using the Open Legend system (which is completely free!). After a friend introduced me to the rules, I decided to try them out myself as GM for once. The idea behind the rule set is to put more of a focus on the roleplaying aspect of a tabletop campaign, rather than the dice crunching. If you're someone who likes to roll for everything or worry over every detail, then this roleplay probably isn't for you.

Secondly–and this is likely to turn people away–this will be an anime roleplay, with anime face claims and so on and so forth. When it comes to anime sci-fi, everyone prefers dabbling in the mecha genre, therefore I wanted to do something different with good old space ships. Characters will obviously be in uniform, but don't worry about finding a face claim wearing one. Bonus points to you if you do wish to bother with finding something along those lines, though.

Finally, I'm looking for five-to-six people max that can write at least a casual level once per week. I've found that being descriptive helps a lot in tabletop (who knows, you might find an improvised weapon or something), and a weekly post keeps the ball rolling where other roleplays might fizzle out. Seeing tabletop campaigns die off is often more painful than a regular roleplay, given you have to fill another sheet on top of a sheet. Let's not have that happen to us, okay?

The start up date is probably sometime next week. Some stuff will be house banned, so please don't jump into character creation right now. Though, if you have anything in mind for a character concept, I'd like to hear them.

Also @Inkarnate I don't know if you want me to save you a spot

I'm pretty full-up on RPs that aren't slow-chugging affairs with my friends, so just carry on without me.

I think we have enough people, then.

@The Large Dumbo@Rondo of Blood@Bazmund@NorthernKraken@rush99999 I'll get the thread out as soon as I can, though I wanted to ask a few things. What I have in mind at the moment is sort of a fire team deal, with the group being either security detail or a marine detachment assigned to the ship. Sound good to you guys?

And if you have any questions about the setting in general, I'll see what I can do to answer them.

Can I use a space katana?

In all seriousness, I'm considering playing the team's Hackerman most likely. Though using space swords is also cool.

EDIT: Forgot to mention, but I'm fine with either of the party ideas, though I'm more attached to the latter since it seems there's more room for activity there.

Probably not a katana, though maybe a longsword or a sabre. I'm kind of leaning towards marines myself, too.

I'm good for a marine campaign, sure. I'm considering bringing back my paranoid, twitchy, stimulant addicted explosives expert from a campaign I tried to get into recently that never took off.

What's everyone else considering? I might actually go for some sort of Leader-y role since I can only imagine someone with a space cutlass would be an officer of sorts.

@Bazmund seems to be going for a twitchy drug-addicted explosives expert. No idea on anyone else.
