Current The thought of starting up an RP is stirring, but then the memories of numerous disappointments come back too.

Logged in for the first time in months just to have a look around. Am not dead. Just took a break for a while. Not sure if I'll start RPing again - depends what's around.

Time for a new RPG; more fighter jets. Been a while since I've done one of these, hopefully it'll get some attention

And I almost guarantee that if I do it, the site will immediately go down for maintenance xD

Bio

I've been roleplaying in one form or another since the late '90's. I've played as many tabletop games as I have online ones, and the quality of both has varied wildly.
I have an active imagination, and I love immersive, descriptive roleplaying. My genres of choice are sci-fi, and modern-day (with a sci-fi twist). I like RP's that mix reality with fiction, and throw an unusual and exciting twist into an otherwise normal setting - something like Stargate SG-1 would be an example, or Battle: Los Angeles. An almost recognizable world, but with some sci-fi twists.
I'm a fan of military and action-based RP's that do this especially, and they are easily my favourite - though I rarely see any that appeal to me enough - all the military RP's are too 'plain', and anything else modern day is usually fantasy or fandom.
I have a lot of fandoms, but I don't really like fandom RP's - or at least, the ones that come up. I often find them a bit lacking in ideas, or too far away from what actually makes the thing I'm a fan of enjoyable.

I don't play in free, as I find the short posts and bad spelling and grammar infuriating.

I'm 39 years old, and live in the UK, so I may not be on all the time.
I also like playing non-human characters, especially anthro ones. I dig giant robots, and I love military aircraft. I'm also a very dedicated and proud Brony and furry.

It's been nearly a week, and a few people here who expressed interest haven't shown their faces in the game thread so far. I did tag everyone, but just putting a bump here to ensure anyone who did say they were interested isn't missing out.
We have at least the minimum number I'd want to be able to start the game, so I'll begin thinking up a starting IC post, with the aim of getting it up over the weekend, if not before.

That doesn't mean that other characters aren't still welcome, or that anyone has 'missed out' or anything similar. But it has been almost a week since I put up the OOC, and I have tagged everyone who replied as interested in the original interest check too, and there have been very few replies from those same people.

Hazel is fantastic, I love the idea of the synthetic body/human brain combo, especially with the medical explanation too.
Pramanik and it's lore also give me really good Belter vibes from The Expanse as well (which I'm currently watching Season 5 of!) which is no bad thing whatsoever.
Definitely approved, feel free to add Hazel to the characters tab.
Would a bomber pilot player need to make a pilot and a gunner? Or would a second person play as the gunner?


If you can partner up with someone else who wants to play the bombardier/gunner, then that's fine. But I was thinking more that anyone choosing to fly a bomber can make two characters for themselves.
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.

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.


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.

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.


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!

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.
@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.

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.

Interested & thinking about what sort of character to make...


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.

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.
