Nebula's Dawn: Lance of Liberty

Nebula's Dawn: Lance of Liberty

Ciao, we're currently in need of special operatives for our science fiction epic. Please check out the information below, and if you become interested, here's the link.

Our Story
The Nebula's Dawn Series
Chapter I: F.S.S. Salient
Chapter II: Lance of Liberty
Chapter III: To Come

In the year 2093 A.D., mankind, or the Federation of Man has spread beyond the Sol System to the Orion Spur. The Arcturus System in the Orion Spur is the very fringe of colonized space, the very fringe of known space. Though the Federation claims to espouse the ideas of liberty, democracy, and the pursuit of happiness, some disagree and are plotting open rebellion. Such groups include the Pirate Nation, and the various cells of freedom fighters collectively known as the Insurgency. One such cell of the Insurgency is operating in the Arcturus System, and is being led by a man known only by his alias, Lord Liberty.
North Country by Two Steps From Hell: A little music for the mood.


Nobody has seen his face, and like his past, his face is hidden behind a mask. To counter this growing threat to Federation sovereignty, Joint Special Operations Command has ordered three stealth frigates crewed with elite and highly trained operatives to aid the battlecruiser, the F.S.S. Salient in it's mission. However, they are also there to gather intelligence, and if possible, infiltrate and eliminate the Insurgency.

Note: Knowledge of the details in Chapter I will not be needed, though the story of Chapter I will indeed have repercussions in Chapter II as part of the dynamic Nebula's Dawn Universe.

Who We Need
We're currently in need of special operatives aboard the three Federation stealth frigates, the Vigilance, the Legacy, and the Redemption. The capabilities of special operatives will range depending on their specialties as a soldier, whether they are a heavy weapons role, a marksman role, a light assault role, or any other that you may come up with.





Their equipment will usually consist of technology that is accessible only by them for their missions, but will usually be standard Federation equipment for Federation personnel, albeit upgraded. You may consult our technology thread for further information. If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask me via PM or through the OOC. I will try to answer them as best I can.

Priority Frigate Spots:

Redemption
Commander:
SiC (Second in Command)/XO/Helmsman:


Secondary Frigate Spots: With each frigate is a cadre of special operatives, at most each frigate has a crew of eight members including the Commander and SiC. You may apply for a secondary spot if the priority spots have been filled. We just need to fill in the commander and SiC spots for the last frigate in order to allow applications for Special Operative Crew spots.

Special Operative Crew:

Other Spots: Our priority are the frigates, but once those are filled, you may apply for another faction such as the Insurgency on New Sidney, the Shuffle Vanguard Pirates, Task Force 172, or the New Sidney Guards. Please check with me or the other GMs for more details.

Rules
Commitment- We're looking for writers who will take this idea and carry it with them.

The Usuals- Do not God-mod, meta-game, or power-game.

Stick With The Lore- This is a space age science fiction roleplay so our technology and lore threads are there for you to read and add to.

POV/Writing- Third Person Limited Past Tense, please use your judgement when it comes to post lengths.

Communication- The OOC threads, my fellow GMs and I are at your disposal if you need to talk. Absences should be informed in advance if possible.
If there is an issue or an idea that you want to bring up, do not be afraid to speak up. We can't help you if you don't say anything.

Background Notes

Call it whatever you want, I'd like to think of this story as like a smoothie of various inspirations that I've drawn from. I've been on Gateway for less than a year, though my username indicates a "Member of 2 Years," I've only become active since June of 2012. I've been roleplaying for a couple of years now, but like my fellow RPG members, I understand there's a ways ahead of me in terms improvement.

I'm a gamer and I enjoy Mass Effect and Halo, so they were some of my primary influences when I started building the world and its appearance. Of course, as a historian, I draw from history for influences and inspiration as well. I also take this story The Star by Arthur C. Clarke, to be a primary influence as well. Have a read, I'm sure your mind will be blown.

Like a stranger on a grate, or a skylark, or a taper, flying ever upward and knowing of love's satiety. Our dreams beyond the Sun and into the expanse of Night doth sound a quiet hymn.

An update on our situation. One of our writers, Nekohina, has put up his character A.D.A.M. for adoption. He had to abandon our role play due to unfortunate personal circumstances. The character A.D.A.M. is an artificial intelligence, a Matrix Method generated A.I. You may adopt him and edit his profile as you wish as long as it follows the canon logically. The two spots aboard the Redemption are still priority, but you may submit a character for another group you are interested in.
