I smell some Geth-like mental connection, as we've both managed to independently write characters who lost left arms and had them replaced with prosthetics.

Must be a shared memory! Can't explain it otherwise.

Astrid looks great; although the OP post does mention for humanity that Earth is a long-lost myth, and nobody really knows where humans come from - they just seem to be everywhere.
But feel free to post her in the Characters Tab as well, as she's approved.

Am aware, I tried to word it in a way that would convey that they don't know either (long forgotten ancestry etc.) They basically knew they must be from the same place, since they're the same species, but that's as far as it goes. Don't know why the mainline Humans forgot about Earth but for Midgard it would be along the lines of "Never been, don't care, this is my home."

The history section is more OOC to explain the "who, where and why" of the system than things that would be known in universe.

Yeah, that makes sense and works out fine. TBH, I haven't decided why humanity has 'forgotten' about Earth, but really; it isn't important to the plot and current situation in-game, in much the same way that in Star Wars humans exist but Earth is never mentioned, let alone the Milky Way or anything like it. Kind of taking the same approach here, really.

Sorry; I meant no disrespect - I really did want to join but, well... I was also starting two RPs on two other sites at the same time (and joining yet another site) and overestimated my ability to take more.

Please forgive me.

No offence taken at all, I just found it slightly amusing how it just went from maybe to can't so quickly was all. And especially after you asked so many questions too! But no worries.

You're welcome to join, and I'm sure you'll hit upon an idea soon enough! Plenty of options.

At the moment, I'm kind of wondering where everyone from the Interest Check has got to, since I've only had one character other than mine so far.

@Penny, @Shadow Daedalus, @Skwint, @jorvhik, @Cloakedrider, @Dead Cruiser, @ClocktowerEchos, are you all still interested, as I haven't seen or heard anything from any of you in the OOC yet, and have only had a single character sheet posted.

Hey, Sorry about dropping off like that, I've been pretty busy so RPing feel off my radar for a bit... I've got two ideas, one of which I need a little clarification on. I have an idea for an Ex-Imperial Pilot, but I also have a second idea for a non-pilot character

Aeorin looks perfectly fine, and I'd be happy to approve him.
While the idea of a non-pilot character is fine, I doubt I'd be able to throw much to do at them the majority of the time and the focus is intended to be on pilots, so I'd have to sadly turn that down. Which is a shame, as I really liked the art as well.

Aww, I was interested in playing a non-pilot flight engineer as well. Maybe if we ever need side characters to pad out a scene.

Additionally, would you allow a thunderbolt retrofitted with a railgun in place of one (or multiple) of the other hardpoints? I love the idea of a clunky, older model heavy-type ship, but railguuuuuuns call to me. Will hopefully be done with my character by the end of today.

Would I be able to join in later in the RP? I'm really not sure what I want to do for a character and I don't want to hold things up too much.

Yeah, I can understand the interest, but I've had past experience with trying to integrate and occupy too many different kinds of characters in an RPG like this before, and it just ended up falling apart and losing focus far to easily, unfortunately.

The railgun Thunderbolt might work; perhaps if it was a one-off as a retrofit or a field-expedient modification to cope with some previous damage or something? Give it a little bit of history and character and I'll allow it.

Sure thing, there's no rush at the moment as it is. Still waiting for enough people to get their characters up/respond before I get started anyway, and I've got to think about how to start, so you may well have time without holding things back at all. And if not, then I'm sure it'll be easy enough to write in another character later.

Silvester looks fine; I like the idea of a family man as a character, that's a refreshing idea to see, and a different motivation for a character as well. Please feel free to post him in the characters tab!

All human characters so far. I guess no one else is a furry.

Doesn't even have to be furry. Admittedly I gave that scope so I could play an anthro character - and, why not - but equally people are open to create their own races. Just no-one has so far. Not that it's a problem either way.

I have non-human characters I could have used, but a Human was the best fit for the background I had in mind so that's why I went with what I did... I might round out the Squadron by adapting my ground crew idea into a Bomber Pilot if we're still short on pilots though lol

Would a bomber pilot player need to make a pilot and a gunner? Or would a second person play as the gunner?
