Hello!
@Brand

Yeah, I was planning on trying to disguise myself, and go up to ask them about the world and stuff, and find out the year. I'll hop on discord sometime tomorrow
@Brand

I would love to speak to the caravan. But I would want to disguise myself first lol.
@Mind of Madness

Are you still doing this, or. . .?

If so, I have an awesome idea for a dragon character. Not every day I get to RP as a dragon, please don't be dead :C
Goodbye, Earth




Charles Durett is a freaking football hero. Along with being the son of wealthy hotel and restaurant owners, he is the star quarterback of the Summers County High School Bobcats. So it goes without saying he's a cool guy. He's got the looks, lives in a badass house with a kickass old mine on the property, and he's about to graduate and get a free ticket out of this small town. Rumors around school say he's going to throw the biggest party ever at his house, 'cause his parents are going to be out of town this weekend. And you got invited!

Hinton, a very small and close-knit town in West Virginia with a population of only about 2,000 seems like one of those towns that no one can escape from. You hear people all the time say that it's cursed, that no one can leave. People do, of course, be it for weeks or years, but they always end up coming back for some reason or other. There's not much to do there, and everyone knows everyone else.

You, the players, will be playing characters going to that after graduation party at the Durett's mansion, where you get caught up in discovering and exploring that old mine; and what you find will change your lives forever. Inside you'll find a big open area behind a boarded-up doorway, unknown to you is actually the inside of an ancient space ship which you guys will of course accidentally activate and will hurdle you all off into space.

Think of the t.v. shows Dark Matter, Farscape and Lost in Space. But, this will be player-driven with main story arcs.

As far as your characters go, you being normal humans goes without saying. You don't HAVE to be graduates from high school though. You just need a reason for being at the party if you decide to be an older or younger character. And like the show Dark Matter, you all with have a specialty. Whether you know it before the adventure starts or have to discover it is up to you.



The rules are pretty much common sense. Character sheets must be completed and approved before posting in the IC.




Character Sheet


Name: Character name with alias if applicable.

DoB: Birthday and age.

Gender: What you got goin' on in the party square.

Appearance: Description required, pic optional.

Background: Who they are, interests and talents, just describe your character! If you are older or younger than high school ages, be sure to include why you were at the party! Be it you sneaked in or were brought by a sibling, you get the idea.

Pro's: List the good/beneficial qualities of your character.

Con's: List the bad stuff that could complicate things. Like fears, habits, physical disability, etc. . .

Thanks! Now we just need one more person at least and we can start!
The universe is so large, with an almost infinite amount of galaxies and planets that most believe that there really is no discussion on whether or not there are alien lifeforms out there. I mean, there has to be, right? Well, probably, but that's not really what I'm going to talk about.

Wireless communication wasn't invented until the 1800's - a round about number we'll use that's good enough for this discussion, because I don't want to go into all the debates on who or when it was invented. So, we've only had access to this technology for the last 218 years. That's not a very long time in the scheme of things, even by a civilization standards. Even if you admit there are intelligent alien lifeforms out there, the chances that they have evolved technologically along-side earth to allow radio communication is really low. It is much more likely that they have either had a global extinction before we discovered radio waves, or haven't discovered it themselves yet. Not to mention how very different they could be compared to us that would make interactions impossible between us, such as genetic makeup and the like.

As far as space travel, I think that it's supremely unlikely that even if there was an alien civilization capable of such things that they would even bother with earth. I mean, the chances that humans and another life form could be comparable is ridiculous to me. I mean, look at how different us humans are from one another from all parts of the world. And we're the same species! And the big jump from us humans to the animals that live on the same planet. Oxygen is probably poisonous to aliens for all we know.

But there all kinds of interesting things you can find if you dig deep into history, especially into ancient civilizations, that kind of showcase the fact that "aliens" have been here from the start helping us early humans build our civilization. I know about the crazy conspiracy theories concerning this, and all the supposed "UFO sightings", and I'm not saying that they are true. But the theories are based on real evidence and facts, and that's what has me thinking.

I'll just go ahead and say what I myself am convinced of. Aliens and UFO's are not from another world in space, I believe that they are us humans from the way distant future. Hear me out.

What better explains why they would help us in the first place? Maybe they wanted to accelerate our growth to see if we would develop technology faster and end up a lot more advanced by the time they discovered how to time travel? Say, 1,000 years from now there is going to be a global extinction from an asteroid or whatever, and they didn't have the technology to stop it, so they gave early civilization a boost at the start and probably along the way at points in hopes that we would the second time around.

Data would be what would be sent back first, before we would even be able to send anything physical, so that could also explain some of the "prophet" figures in history. I dunno, makes more sense to me than some other foreign alien life deciding to help out earth.

What do you guys/gals think? I know this idea probably has already been talked about but I personally have just came up with it and find it intriguing.

Thanks for your interest! Just waiting for at least two more people before I set up the main thread where you'll have your character sheet.

I for one am excited to start this thing. :D
