Greetings any and all Mecha and Gundam Fans!


>>>Ascend to the stars once more!<<<


Happy holidays to all at the end of this great year of 2020! I'm hoping I can help alleviate some of the boredom and troubles over the year with an rp. So here we go:



The world was once prosperous with humanity travelling regularly from our rock into the stars. The colonization of space held great promise for our future, if war had not followed with us. Conflicts between the regular Earth nations and the colonies regularly broke out through out the centuries, each time changing the path but never for the better. At the heart of the conflict stood the mobile suits, bipedal machines built in our image and armed with nearly all weapons imaginable. Piloted by all sides in the wars, they sowed destruction across the Earth and above it.

Soon we forgot the eons between the wars, and the final great war ended in the destruction of most of the Earth's surface, millions dead, and billions of tons of scrap shielding the world. What was left of humanity was surviving the aftermath, scavenging for food, shelter and the most important resource of all, energy. The people on Earth were left cold while the remaining colonies above safeguarded the few resources they had from the surface. Shielding the world was a giant debris field filled with scrap metal, asteroids, and the remains of war machines. The once grand orbital ring now laying in tatters above the world, to the mightiest battleship, and to the smallest firearm, the debris field is filled with items everyone will need.

On Earth, the fastest growing human settlement has become an empire. Seeking to ever expand their territory and supplies, they have begun reconstructing rockets to travel back into the stars and acquire more for their industrial base. Blessed with scientists, they have once again achieved humanity's dream of travelling to the stars...

Space was not vacant however. The remaining four colonies circling Earth have banded together into a coalition for recovery. As the ones abandoned from their land, they grew their own society and have plundered the wreckage around the Earth to rebuild themselves. Nearing the chance to return, they discovered the humans below have ventured out once more. Like it always has been, conflict has begun once more. The debris field of the world is constantly scavenged and filled as the two sides escalate against the other...




The situation and players!


This is a world that has just recovered from the destruction of the past and countries can be properly defined by borders. On Earth, the greatest force is the Empire of Beloth which exists in what remains of Europe after vicious damage from colony drops have altered the borders slightly. The Empire has a policy of expansion and acquisition of resources to supply themselves. With a large population, the expansion of the borders has begun to slow as more machines and materials are needed to supply their military. Along with an abundance of food and people, the Empire has a plentiful amount of fuel which has been the lifeblood of their military. Using this supply and their relatively advanced industry they have begun using old spaceports and launch vehicles to travel upwards. Recently they have been meeting resistance by the remains of the colonies, also known as…

The Colony Coalition for Restoration, made up of 4 colony groups, are the descendents of the colonists in space who have worked together to survive. With minimal fuel supplies, travel between bases in space for the Coalition is generally done by large transports while a convoy performs regular trips to Jupiter for hydrogen. Alexandria, Cecilia, Vitus and Side 3 are the last surviving colony groups in orbit, after developing their own cultures and slowly recovering, have strived to return to the soil of Earth. They have deployed an advanced force to the debris field around the world to begin scavenging for supplies to not only travel back to the ground, but return from it.

Player’s characters can join either of the two factions, entering into the Empire’s military or the Coalition’s expeditionary forces. I personally will have 2 characters on each side to help direct things along for a total of 4 characters, but I’d like to have people have only 3 characters at most, although I don’t expect many to make multiple. The RP will start with rocket launches into orbit by the Empire to scavenge around for mobile suits, weapons and various gear based on a loot system. Occasionally the colonies might have a force nearby and a narrative style combat would take place. I would like the RP to not be heavy PVP but some players may end up in combat to which I hope everyone is with the understanding we are all writing to enjoy the story.

Characters will start with a choice of 3 mobile weapons from the listing across many Gundam series (MSG, MSGZ, MSV, ZZ, Unicorn, MSGW, AWGX, SEED, Destiny, 00, IBO, etc) wiith chances to find famous suits from these universes as the RP goes on. Trade between players and even NPCs will be available at times. If anyone has questions, feel free to ask and I will clarify to the best of my ability at this time!

*Happy haro noises*

Thank you both! I'm terrible when it comes to naming conventions so if you see anything in the rp that looks... Well, stupid, I'm open to suggestions. Tonight I should have a profile skeleton ready, and I'm completely fine with only a few players at the start of the rp. I just want to get a gundam rp up after so long.

@Phoenix347What are the limits of what we can start with?

@vancexentan
Characters can choose one of two options; take a gamble pick from 3 units chosen at random from a list of 100+ mobile suits and armors, or choose a simple mobile suit from a provided list of mass produced 'grunt' mobile suits.

For example, one player who wanted a roll had a result of the following;
YF-3A GINN FEMWS
MAJ-S08 Xiaoshou
MS-06JK Zaku Half Cannon.

Alright I'll consider running for the roleplay but time may be an issue as I'm on my final week of college before winter break.

That's completely understandable, take your time and focus on studies first, the rp should still be here when you're done!

Do we have to play a pilot? Are we allowed to be mechanics? Or some other role?

@DawningAurora
Completely allowed! Mechanics, civilians (involved in things), engineers, designers, scientists, regular soldiers, officers, and more. The most limiting factor is just roles that can be included, like, no one needs to play a mailman or farmer.

Pilots won't be the only ones with scenes as things like engineers and soldiers can assist in space or on the ground, on mobile weapons or equipment such as computers, com units, rockets etc. I'd love to have engineer characters who know more about the machines then the pilots and ridicule them for damage or praise them for finding new mobile weapons!

@Phoenix347Is there any prerequisite knowledge about the Gundam series needed? I have no idea about the series but just want to try to get a hang of thing.

@Shovel
I would say quite a bit, as we're taking from different universes it is highly recommended to have some knowledge about it. My best recommendation for learning about it is just browsing the Gundam Wiki and reading up on the tv series (Mobile Suit Gundam, Gundam 00, Gundam SEED/Destiny, and Gundam Iron Blooded Orphans are the most popular series with differing universe situations.) The basis of what to know is the series revolves around young adults (usually preteens) getting involved in a space war with giant robots (roughly 18 meters average). There are beam/laser weapons and telepathy like abilities as usual staples of the series along with anything called a Gundam being an prototype/advanced machine.

If you pm me I can explain more in depth if you are interested but if it's too overwhelming to learn and join, I understand and I don't want you to waste time learning about something you're unsure of.

Edot: I should clarify as this rp will be taking place after everything; events, people and places from the series aren't necessary to know for participation. Only things such as beams, generators and mobile suit types are a good start. Things can be explained in character if you wish to join and not be overloaded.

Glad to hear it!

With this many eyes oogling the page, I feel compelled to create the RP's page tonight! I will leave it as pending until at least Friday, but may give more time to finalize mechanics and information for the world.
