Current Just when I think I'm ready to post my OOC I realize there's a bit more lore I need to write before I start. Not sure whether I hate the idea of an incomplete OOC or making folks wait even longer.

Wow, just ruined a new scarf within three hours of purchasing it. Velcro is a tool of Satan.

As promised, my futuristic horror intchk is now up! Only took three days' worth of painful research... Hopefully the potential the plot now has to be plausible will be worth it.

So... Is it illegal to imitate a UN resolution document for an RP? Asking for a friend...

If you like sci-fi, horror, and a dash of Lovecraftian influence, I have an int chk you might be interested in coming this weekend. It'll be my first time GMing in 2 years, should be interesting.


I suppose I actually ought to try to write a half-decent bio, for those who might be interested in RPing with me to check out, so hey. I'm Grav. College student who gets sick at the drop of a hat and notorious overachiever. Hope you enjoy your stay on this half-assed profile.

My posting capability ranges from Casual on a typical day to well into Advanced on a great day. I enjoy RPGs but sometimes find it difficult to write timely replies, due to the fact I just started college and the curriculum is far more rigorous than I'd anticipated, but I'll always try my best to stay in contact with my RP partners, and won't abandon an RP without saying something first. Fantasy (high, low, urban, medieval, etc), horror/suspense, and noir are genres I adore, and I'm trying to learn how to write for sci-fi, though I'm quite new to it. While there's generally nothing cooler than an engaging original plot, I'm also generally down for an RP based of a pre-existing game, book, or other piece of media as long as it's interesting and I have some experience with it.


Amnesia: The Dark Descent ○ Assassin's Creed ○ Baldur's Gate ○ Bioshock ○ Borderlands 2 (have yet to play the first) ○ Dishonored ○ Elder Scrolls ○ Fallout (Esp New Vegas) ○ Mass Effect ○ Pathologic ○ Shovel Knight ○ Subnautica ○ The Witcher ○ Tyranny

Quick Status Update

Sorry for the delay, folks, I've been exhausted and I'm now running up against my self-imposed deadline. About 95% of my OOC is finished, but I still need to fill out events for our timeline before we start. I hope to either finish late tonight, or tomorrow. I just wanted to let you all know I didn't disappear, and that I am still working on getting this RP going in the very near future!
@MagratheanWhale We'd be happy to have you! Welcome aboard.
@ihinka Thank you! I hope you have time to join us, but if not, that's perfectly fine too.

@Drakey Good questions! At the moment, I'm working on a section for that to post in the OOC of the RP, but the advancements that will concern most of our characters is that the IRV Howard has some self-repairing capabilities, but still needs oversight as they don't always kick in until a certain point (it's a twenty year old ship), the CARAPACE suits are not only built to resist pressure but can help to negate fall damage up to a certain amount and have a built in interface that allows for contact with anyone with a smartwatch, smartphone, or much larger device of the same nature (in one of the main rooms of the Howard there will be a table with an interactive holographic map of the sea floor that is based both on past excursions and data sent to it by those investigating the Trench on foot). Medicine has advanced too, but I'm still trying to come up with ways to make these advancements useful without making it so that it negates any sense of danger the player has entirely. And yes, you can absolutely play a mechanic, or anyone into techy things! Anyone who typically has any role aboard a ship is fair game for a character.

@Elgappa If you wanted to make some nod to that story in your CS, either by ways of relation or anything else, that's more than fine by me. We're currently not treating Lovecraft's mythos like everything he's written happened in universe, but I don't mind at all including references to stories here and there!

Also, seeing as we now have enough folks interested, I'll see if I can't get my OOC finished before the end of this week. If all goes well, I should have it up by tomorrow morning (according to EST), but as I have family coming up for the day and then my longest day of classes following, I could see it taking a little longer. Thank you all so much for your interest, and I can't wait to get this started! Also, if you have anymore questions, feel free to ask.
@Elgappa Thank you so much! Glad to have you aboard!
@DeadDrop Wonderful! Glad to hear you're interested.
@POOHEAD189Thank you! I'm sorry to hear you can't join, but I appreciate your interest, and will try to keep a spot open should you get more free time!
@Penny Thank you! Hopefully it doesn't count as a white collar crime, haha.
@Irredeemable Glad to hear it! I'll be sure to tag you again if I get enough people interested to put an OOC and CS up.

Expedition to the Mariana Trench

OOC Briefing

Alright, so, hopefully I didn't lose you with that delightful forged UN exposition document. I'm Grav, and I'm hoping that I got my plot across somewhat decently in my 'multi-media' pitch. If you're interested, we'll be taking a nice little trip to the Mariana Trench as a group of men of science and their crew, and unfortunately for them, their little expedition is going to be met with plenty of challenges, some of them not being what they initially seem. I need about five or six players for this RP before I can start it, and probably couldn't take more than eight, as this is my first time trying to GM for two years. Hopefully I can keep up. I intend for there to be IC posts from people weekly, or bi-weekly at the very least, depending on length or amount of collaboration needed. I completely understand people have lives outside of the Guild, but as long as everyone stays invested in the RP and is involved in the OOC and/or a related Discord channel, I expect this RP will live to its completion. Hope to hear from you all if this is of interest!
I'll nab some screenshots tomorrow - I gotta finish my hw and parents weekend already started I'm dead -.-
