LustForDecay Death Metal Maniac From 2010 Or Something

Member Seen 16 hrs ago



Greetings, said it before but a helluva long time ago I used to be on this forum like in 2010 or such. Anyways, I figured it was high time to try my hand at a gritty squad-based military sci-fi roleplay with elements of eldritch horror to it. A long time ago, I ran Soldiers of Misfortune and I think Dissentities here but ever since the big server collapse, all of those RP's have been lost to time (potentially for the better tbh).

The basic gist of it is a well funded and well connected scientific foundation sends a mixed special forces team from various interstellar armed forces and its own (plus maybe some mercs for good measure) into the most war torn part of a country being split up at the tail end of a massive conflict. Their mission is to make contact with a series of hidden laboratories built over the ruins of ancient alien civilizations; lately, the various facilities they own have been taken over by a mysterious group of sentient automatons and they suspect they're coming for these ones next.

Unfortunately, things quickly go south when the stealth transport is shot down and it's clear someone had sabotaged this mission from the start. Landing off course from the drop site, with enemies bearing down on the team, they're forced to survive in the most hostile territory on the planet and try to make it to the research site before their mysterious robotic foes do so.

Of course, things get worse from here.













If you're interested and have any questions, feel free to let me know. You can also find me on Discord as FleshAutomata#2592.

Definitely interested, kinda reminds me of Borderlands in terms of multiple corporate factions fighting for planetary territory.

Thanks you for your interest! Just to clarify however that the UCL would be the only like full on corporate presence in the setting.

I'd be lying if I said I don't adore the roster of outlandish aliens here (fungoids and invertebrates hit some of my soft spots), and the thought-out political and occult background is certainly a plus. I'll be keeping an eye or a few on this.

Thank you. I always preferred my aliens to be well, alienating and the atmosphere to be eldritch and foreboding.

Happy to hear that! I believe we have nearly enough to start with three confirmed. I'm brainstorming an opening post for the IC as well as an OOC as well.

@The Ghost Note have you been able to read the lore as well by any chance?

I actually have another species in mind that will be similar to the voidhangers.

I haven't read the lore page but I'll get around to it now.

Well, I am likely to add another playable species of offshoot mutants with innate supernatural capabilites. Something like very large phronima.

The species list in the lore thread has been updated with one new species near the bottom (praohlnevatz) and reference images for a few of the other ones! Been a bit busy but expect an OOC thread tomorrow, with the IC hopefully in the same week. In the meantime, here's a link to the official discord if you'd like to discuss more!
