FTL-ish RP

Post by Bloodtrailkiller on Sat 03 Aug 2013, 9:31 pm

Oslo came to me with the Chat RP once again, though he seemed to want to bring it to the next level into a full on RP. Of sorts.

The RP would be very open and flexible; custom races, weapons, factions, etc.
It would be a fairly casual RP to catch everyone's attention to sort of draw the forum together. Seeing as how many people ended up getting involved, for bullshit or worse.
While it'd be nice to have some restrictions on things, I'm not entirely against restraining people for the better of the RP.
so, anyone want to input on the idea?

(An old one we made.)

SS Gotlaand
Stiletto-Class Messenger Corvette
Crew: 6 (Understaffed)
A neutral ship, built by several private companies. This ship was state-of-the-art: It was sent into the field too early, though. And several intelligence leaks made the plans soon obsolete as better versions were designed. So naturally the ship soon became nothing more than a mail runner between fringe colonies, relying on a constantly-changing skeleton crew.

This ship carries blue prints entrusted to them by a mysterious figure who promised a bountiful reward. Better than nothing since there was a lull in business after long-range personal broadcast began spreading to the fringe worlds.
They were told never to examine the information, told only to carry it towards the nearest star system to the center of the Universe, Hel. Even then, they're not allowed to view said data until their supposed client arrives, though Hel's frequent shifts in it's course can change its atmosphere drastically.
The journey will be difficult: The Hel system is well known to be controlled by a clan of some of the deadliest pirates around, using strange ships that cannot be identified. Not to mention that it's barely even been charted by the ship, so dangers can literally be right around the corner.

It was not long until the crew realized they bit off a little more than they could chew.

Melee Weapons (Armor-Ignoring)
Stunrods, Electroblades, and the like have pre-charged powercells that maintain life for a very long time. They are usually fairly deadly at close range with enough strikes, as conventional swords cannot cut through the weave that is incorporated in all fabric nowadays.

Ranged Weapons
Carbines, Rifles, Snipers, Pistols, and all those fancy laser weapons require powercells charged right before combat, making them somewhat cumbersome in close range, but quite deadly.

If you wish to join, you will be picked up at the nearest stop.

Actually, now that I've actually read it (I skimmed through it very briefly...) I find the plot to be... Well, too large in scope. Sorry Hal.

The Federation has already destroyed the Rebel Flagship, and the Kestrel lives in fame now. But the next step was pushing the Rebels out of Federation, however the Federation has found itself checking it's wallet twice. Knowing that their funds would be gone long before the Rebels were pushed out, a series of things happened, lowering the citizens' love into more of a "Ah man... this fucking sucks, but I'll put up with it for now." (The series of events won't have anything to do with what I have in mind.)

A Rockman Merchant needs an old Engi droid delivered to friendlier Federation space, as the outer rims of Federation space is a muck with Rebel stragglers and pirates looking for an easy score.

As such, he has contracted a crew (Us) and gives them a ship to do the job. It is relatively crumby, but this droid contains more than it looks like, and needs a more discreet transportation method.

The droid, actually an early adjutant model used in the Mantis Conflicts, and although it's borderline useless now, it has some very interesting data inside of it...

The coordinates to a ship lost in space.

It works for a short term, but what about a long term?
