Captain's Log: 63 days since last incident.

"Well, so far so good. Over the past couple of months I've managed to scrummage together a new crew...For better or worse. It's certainly a varied crowd, at least. Regardless, they've gotten the job done so far, so I'm in no position to argue. Still, as of yet, I haven't found a good chance to really put things to the test; until now, that is."

"Got a job from an old fixer who, honestly? I was pretty sure he'd gotten iced. Well, point is, they reached out a few days ago, with a big offer. Lots of credits on the line. And if we're lucky, apparently this mission should be pretty smooth sailing. 'Course, though, it ain't that easy; he wants to meet me and the new bunch in person, for Stars only know what reason, before he tells me the job proper. What a pain in the ass..."

"Least he was smart about the location. We're to be meeting him on an isolated planetoid with no intelligent life....Hell, barely life in general. Only problem is that it's apparently covered in dust storms all day, and at night, whatever beasts inhabit the place come out to prowl. We'll have to pick our poison on which of those is slightly less problematic, but I imagine we won't have much issue...As long as this crew is as competent as I've come to believe."

"....We should be closing in on the destination soon. Better go address these morons and give them the low-down. Captain Kura, signing off."


Greetings, interstellar writers! Welcome to The Star-Breakers! This is a Sci-Fi story based on the escapades (and no doubt shenanigans) that our titularly named group of star-faring outlaws get up to! They'll face impossible odds, get their asses somehow stuck into the most ridiculous of situations, and, who knows? Maybe they'll even save a planet or two along the way. We'll just have to find out!

Of course, though, like any good RP, we gotta set some ground rules. Here we go!

General Rules:

  • 1: This one's pretty self-explanatory; try not to be a jerk, alright? No one likes trying to play alongside someone whose being all riled up for no reason. And of course, if you have an actual reason to be upset, bring it up to me. It's what I'm here for!
  • 2: Like any good story, there's gotta be stakes, and while I'm not particularly planning on character death anytime soon, characters will be finding themselves under serious threat more often than not, and won't likely escape unscathed. Isn't very interesting if someone wins every time, eh? Which leads into my next rule...
  • 3: No Godmodding, alright? Pretty sure everyone around here's familiar with the term, though the main piece I'm concerned with is making your character seem too perfect. No one perfectly dodges every move, counterattacks at just the right time, and always thinks things through. Characters, no matter how cool, strong, or smart, can make mistakes and be caught off their guard. Don't be afraid to get roughed around; it just makes the turnaround all the cooler ;) On an...Slightly related note, if you read between the lines....
  • 4: Romance is fine, of course, but keep any intense stuff behind the black screen, yeah? Assuming anything like that happens, of course. The ol' fade to black trick always works...
  • 5: On a vaguely similar line, while getting wounded, even grievously so, isn't something I'll be trying to stray away from here, let's keep some excessive stuff clear. No one needs to hear about your innards spilling out or something, right? Right.
  • 6: Let's avoid anything political. C'mon, like the fictional bad guys aren't enough to tango with, yeah? It'll just leave a bad taste in most people's mouths, so better to stay hush-hush than come at each other's throats.
  • 7: I'm no grammar nazi...Okay, that's a lie, I totally am. I'll try not to be on your case about it, but try to make sure your punctuation and grammar are proper. Or at least as proper as it needs to be for your character lol.
  • 8: I'm not looking for mile-long posts, but a few paragraphs is a good point to land on. Quality over quantity, I say.
  • 9: If anything comes up in/from the RP that you want to talk about with me, I'm all ears. Sorta my job as the GM, y'know?
  • 10: If you've read this far, when you're making your Character Sheet, add a piece near the bottom where you mention your favorite series relating to Science Fiction! Personally (and probably unsurprisingly, given the concept of this RP), I'm a big fan of the Guardians of The Galaxy.
  • 11: Last, and most important rule of all...HAVE FUN! It's sorta what we're here for. Y'know, besides the drama, badass action scenes, character development....Okay, maybe there's a little more to this than just the fun. But all of it just adds to it!



Alright! With that out of the way, there's only one last thing to handle: The character sheets! With this you'll be able to properly write up your character for me to check out, after which I'll either accept them or offer a few complaints that we can work through together (though with any luck, I probably won't need to lol). If you have any questions involving character creation, feel free to ask me here, or privately, whichever you prefer!



Now, I'll look forward to seeing who all shows up to become ap art of this motley bunch! And in due time, I'll be making the spoken-of Captain Kura, so be on the lookout for that as well! There will also eventually be a Discord made, where we can all converse more easily and where I'll be putting world-building stuff as well! You'll be invited once your character's been accepted...That, and when I actually make it. xD

Im interested. Im thinking i might play some sort of combat character. Maybe a martial artist.

@canaryrose
Hi, i just wanted to clarify my comment considering we're both possibly going into the same rp.

Your boss sounds like a jerk.

@Mintz As I said, can't decide, so I'm submitting both. Feel free to pick one? I'll try to work on some drawings tomorrow.


(Note: I can PM Red's full backstory to the GM, just to prove I'm not using amnesia as a 'get out of writing free' card.



As for favorite sci-fi series, that's a tough one. Despite my love for the genre, I know I've barely scratched the surface on some of the more popular and beloved works. Futurama and The Twilight Zone are shows I tend to come back to pretty frequently though, even when I know I ought to be checking out stuff like Babylon 5 and Firefly.

Alright, I'm stewing on an idea. I'll hit the boss up to clarify a few details then get something posted.

Oh wow. This has gotten a lot more interest than I imagined. If spots really are limited, then I'd be more than happy to sit this one out and allow someone else just that much better a shot at getting in. Really, I'm just happy this RP is actually getting off the ground (heh).
Enjoy the game, guys!

Spots could be limited; mostly depends on how many folk from the thread or otherwise actually show up. So far it's feeling pretty manageable, so hey, toss your hat in the ring if ya want! :D

I love some Guardians of the Galaxy. Could be keen to play the sneak/scout role. Will try to have a CS up tomorrow if there's space left

I just need to fill out her Equipment, otherwise this is complete. Posting now since I need to get myself to work and can finish that minor section tonight.

I'd of course appreciate a more thorough backstory at some point, but the bullets get her points across, which is definitely what counts. And as for Equipment, well...As long as it's filled out before the RP proper, there won't be any issues. Welcome to the crew, Banshee! Be sure to get her up in Characters. :)

I can certainly work on a longer and more detailed backstory over time, I’m actually quite chuffed that you’re requesting it; I usually write too much and feel bad my first pass and have been working steadily to make more concise sheets. I’ll take that as a ‘mission accomplished’ and just have fun with expanding my outline for later.

Equipment will be filled out by tonight, and I’ll shift the sheet over at that time.
