Introduction

"So fell the nation, crumbled into dust. So fell our people, carried off were us. Taken far from home, taken far from land. Taken 'way from the very place where our lives began."

That's Earth. We lost it after the war. I was just a child, barely nine. But I remember it like it was yesterday. The ships of the Jecktar Congregate darkened our skies. They weren't just sending us idle threats. They meant everything they said and proved it right there. I remember when they delivered the message.

"Your skies will turn black and your cities to ash. We are this galaxies' salvagers. The insignificance of the Unduli Republic must be wiped out. It is scar that must be healed, rectified, repaired, extinguished."

The Republic's Prime Minister crash landed on our planet after a nearby battle. He and his crew asked the aid of the newly formed United Federation of Earth. They could hardly refuse, for in exchange for helping the Republic humanity received technology beyond their wildest dreams, weaponry beyond their comprehension, new allies, new friendships, new ideals. It was incredible!

And then their fleets arrived, and it was even more incredible! They told us we were going to help them fight a war, a war to end all wars! There would be peace! My dad went off to fight in the coming battle. He wanted to do our family proud, do ME proud.

He didn't come back.

Image

The skies were darkened. Their weaponry was unlike anything we'd ever seen. The first blast of their main flagship's cannon wiped out half of the Canadian landscape. The planet was being evacuated before the real fighting had even begun. Within just a few weeks, Earth was overrun and the Republic fleet--unduli and humans aboard it--had fled the scene of battle.

That was twenty-two years ago.

Many humans blamed the unduli for the loss of their home. I wouldn't blame 'em. I sort of do myself. I'm not a bigot though, not like the rest. Hell, I may need them for this job I'm about to do.

What job? I'll tell you. I've been serving in the military for a while. I'm captaining a ship right now, the RSS Deliverance. I'm looking for a team fo specialists to come with me and do the unthinkable: retake Earth. I've planned out what we'll need to do in order to take our home back, all I need is a reliable group of soldiers, engineers and tacticians. I'll take humans and unduli alike. I don't care who you are or what you are, I'll let you in so long as you can fire a gun, repair a ship, lead a team, etc.

You want in? Great. Here's the roster.

Toggle Rules

LORE UPDATE: The United Federation of Earth was formed long before the events of this tale. The exact date isn't what matters at this point, more the government system itself. It was a world government founded on the principle that only having multiple leaders with multiple different views from multiple parties could balance things out in terms of leadership and direction. Three leaders are always elected using the same democratic voting system as the United States of America that once existed ages back.

At least that's how it was prior to the taking of Earth. Afterward, when these elected leaders were eliminated, a more military operated government was in its place. Admiral Damond Price is the current leader of the Federation, using as much power as necessary to keep humainity alive and in power.

UPDATE (6/12/2012): I'll be taking two more unduli entries and two mroe humans before we make the jump to the next chapter of the story. Character creation will reopen when the new race has been unlocked. And again, note that not all characters are making it out of this one. Let me know via PM if you want to survive or have an epic death or something. :) It's important. I won't spoil anything, but $#!t gets real near the end.

LORE UPDATE (6/10/2012): The Republic's system of government is democratic, but not wholly. The Prime Minister is elected, but they pick their "inner circle," the Prime Elite. The elite will helped form/reform regulations of things like the economy, law, culture, etc. There are ten members of the Elite, but none of them perform a specific function. The issues of the society are brought to them and the Prime Minister, and they all act on what is laid before them.

LORE UPDATE (6/9/2012): No more bullets! Blaster rifles have been invented. They operate using energy clips.

UPDATE (6/8/2012): We're looking for more mercenary/Federation players! We need baddies! I mean, join if you're a good guy too, but we need renegades in here. Captain Russell's close, but not that close. And you can be creative, even within the confines of the characters presented. JOIN THE FIGHT!

BONUS LORE UPDATE: The Federation salute is the same as the American Navy's salute, whereas the Republic Naval salute is two fingers to the left shoulder from the right hand. This is meant to communicate unity bound by peace (the two fingers meaning peace is merely a coincidence of nature, although when unduli use two fingers to show peace their fingers are together, not apart like ours).

LORE UPDATE (6/6/2012): Concerning the possibility of half-unduli/half-human characters, there have been rare occurances of the two, for lack of a better term, "getting it on," and thus far none have been born. It is recommended by Yours Truly that one is not made yet, as that could be getting saved for a later twist... o.O

Also, below there is mentioned of an unlocked race in the future. There is one spot reserved on it at this time. The reason for this is because the one whom it's reserved for basically may have kinda sorta created the hidden race and is allowing me to make minor alterations to have it fit within the confines of the universe (they basically handed me EXACTLY what I needed for the middle chapters of the tale). There will be a LIMIT to the amount of people roleplaying the race and there will be an update that will essentially show players what it's like to be this character so that they roleplay the species properly. THAT'S NOT TO SAY IT WON'T BE FUN, just know that you will have less flexibility than if you play a human or an unduli.

And take this as a bit of hope: when we reach Earth there will be fourth "technical race" unlocked (no, it's not the jecktar. See the basic rules about that). By "technical race" I mean that it's technically not a new race, but their backstory is COMPLETELY different from the humans, unduli, and [super-secrets].

Well, that's a BIG update. And there are bigger ones to come. The ending's going to kick major @$$, unlike the conclusion of one of my favorite franchises. >:| DAMN GHOST KID'S UP IN MAH GRILL!

BONUS LORE UPDATE: The reason the unduli are able to speak English/human languages is because of their language assimilation techniques. Most unduli (though not all) are able to quickly grasp the languages of aliens they meet, including the intricacies of their grammar. This is simply a basic function of their minds, which, as you could imagine, operate slightly differently than a human mind might. It's not like they hear one sentence and instantly know the language, but over the course of twenty-two years, you'd think they'd understand it by now. :)

UPDATE (6/4/2012): We have now gotten underway. We are looking for more UNDULI characters. Engineers, scientists, soldiers, whatever. Bring 'em in! And if you're making a human, you can make any human you'd like, but a badass renegade one would be nice (more on the mercenary/hired-gun side). Read ALL the updates and then the rules afterward.

RULE UPDATE (6/3/2012): Check OOC chat before creating characters for more data on the situation at hand. Also, romance is allowed in this RP, but don't get too mushy guys, and don't get too explicit either. We don't need any more Star Wars Episode IIs around. And we don't need any more pilots. I think we've got a good one now. ;) One final addition I'd like to add is that I would prefer that we use the "Activity" page only, and not the chat. I'm new to RPGateway and I don't know whether that's standard procedure, but I thought I'd throw that in. More updates ahead!

END OF UPDATES. BASIC RULES BELOW.

So, now that you've learned the history of what's going on, here's some basic rules:

#1) DON'T GOD MOD. If you want to do something epic, let me and whoever else is involved know beforehand so we can discuss whether it's possible within the confines of the universe we've created together.

#2) DON'T GOD MOD. Guys, I mean it.

#3) KEEP IT CLEAN. It's all right to swear every once in a while, but don't turn this into a Sam Kinison standup.

#4) KEEP IT COOL OOC. Let's get to know each other out of character before we poke fun at each others' nose sizes, yeah?

#5) BE ACTIVE! Dont' drop off the face of the map guys. And if you NEED to leave for a while, let us know in advance so we can all, as a group, plan what to do with your character in the meantime.

#6) HAVE FUN! I know this is a generic rule, but seriously guys, this SHOULD be fun. Let's not make it suck for ourselves and each other, yeah?

A'ight, now about character creation. Take into account everything you've read in the intro. If you're an unduli, you're a purple or blue skinned humanoid who ages exactly twice as fast as humans (for example: a fifty year old human would be the same age as a twenty-five year old unduli). Note also that unduli aren't as well built as humans, so they don't make as good soldiers. They compencate for their lack of strength with brilliant engineering and useful tactics.

If you want to play a more villainous character, just go for being racially prejudiced. If you don't want to die, let me know. Hopefully I'll find a way out for you. If you want to play an outright villain (a jecktar) I'm sorry. That won't fit well with the story. I will be playing a few villains later on in the tale, but that's about it.

For those who need any further backstory on the unduli, they are a spacefaring race that has relied on mostly arid planets to survive on thus far in their history. They do not know at this point why the Congregate attacked them, or anyone for that matter.

WARNING: At a certain point character creation will re-open due to the arrival of a new race later on in the story. Don't worry, this'll be good. :)

Send in character data soon! Character ages allowed range from 15 to 65 for humans, 8 to 33 for unduli (do the math to get why). See you all soon!

Julian smiled about at those who had arrived, raising a brow at the sight of Frank. He noted Tyriel's positive behavior towards Jaron and smiled tipped his hat in Andreah's direction, taking into account that Doctor Coles had indeed finished treating her. He only expected two more to arrive before departure: his eyes seemed to thin as he went over the prospect of arriving at the new planet. Hopefully an anomoly would be detected at the very first one. Hell, hopefully the Anathians would be right there, smack dab where they were needed. But as of right now that was highly unlikely.

Interception from the Jecktar Congregate would be a more apt situation than the former.

Tienette rolled her eyes slightly, be it at Frank's enthusiasm or Tyriel's back licking wasn't easy to tell "I'm a mechanic" she corrected him, but smiled slightly, she tried not to be all ice and spikes "I'm doing what I love, how about you?" she said and asked simply. She turned towards where the 'entertainment' of the gathering looked to be about to happen, waiting for things to get cracking.

"I think so too, Cap. We've got ourselves a great team and a great leader," he said with a smile. He stood as the others entered the bridge and did his best to appear capable, competent, worthy of his role, older. Many of these people had far many more years of experience in their respective positions, but he was a novice, an accomplished one but he was no stranger to people questioning his abilities based on his age alone.

He nodded at Tyriel, "Thank you, I saw that you already were fixing the Warp Core. How does the work?" He knew that the sensitive pieces of machinery that made interstellar travel possible were a nightmare to repair, but if Cap hired these engineers, he trusted they could have it working well in no time. Little did he know, of course that it was already handled and operating at full capacity.

Tyriel nodded and looked to Jaron. "It's fixed. Back to full capacity. You shouldn't have any more problems. I went ahead adn installed some better coils to make sure that they'd be able to handle the extreme amount of power going through them." Tyriel answered. "If you have anymore inssues, let me know, and i'll get it fixed." Tyriel offered, he did a lot of work, and usually didn't have much rest in between jobs, but he was always willing to get something repaired.

Frank shifted slightly on the spot, somewhat uncomfortably "I just joined up with the ship, as we were called here" He said, trying to avoid the issue, not that he was ashamed of his job, but he didn't care to broadcast his under utilization. "How long have you been stationed here? I barely know what's going on" he tried to hold his attention forward as he spoke, but his gaze shifted towards Tienette now and then, noting the changes since last time.

Tienette's face changed into a slight smile, Frank had this "flattering creepiness" to him "I've been up here and about some months now..." she got a malicious shine to her eyes "You didn't say what you do around here?" she hoped to put him on his spot. The last time they'd met, Frank had been happy to test coffee and complain that she was doing her job properly and rolling his eyes. She though he had some janitorial value of sorts, but hadn't really cared to ask... He hadn't completely won her disgust and hate though, he knew the lyrics to "I hate everything about you" and he was just as indifferent to things as her, making him a little less annoying than other coworkers on the same ship.

Leaning a bit closer to Tienette, Frank lowered his voice as to not interrupt the important talk. "Well I haven't really gone through the briefing for staring up yet so the exact details are not settled. But it looks like I'll be starting up working with the airlocks in the trash compartments." He said with a hushed voice. He showed no shame anymore, to begin with he had been feeling ashamed with the downgrades people flung at him now and again, but some time it stopped affecting him in that way. He looked about to take in the feel of the people around him. Not exactly the brightest bunch, but he didn't feel like competing with them, they seemed to behave professionally, so could he.

Jane had lost her train of thought when Douglas had showed her to her room. "I'm thinking we need to make our way to the bridge. I'm almost certain we'll find everybody else there." She slid her keycard to access her room and stepped inside before bringing her attention back to Douglas. "I'm going to grab some stuff then I'll be right back out." She stepped back a little bit so the door would close. Once alone, she found herself going through her bag that had been brought to her room by someone on the ship. She, made it to the bottom of the bag to find a small journal that she pulled out swiftly. She opened it, revealing the smell of new pages. She had always wanted to be like her father in the sense that he wrote everything down that was important, so she thought this trip was the perfect time to start.

Once back outside with Douglas, she secured the journal underneath her arm and headed in the direction of the bridge. "Are you ready for all of this?" She asked as she realized she had forgotten a pen. She would need to remember that when she was in the company of others. It seemed the walk was more in silence as the bridge came into view and she saw the others. Giving Douglas a quick glance, she walked towards the Captain, showing her arrival. "Sorry it took so long, Captain." She saluted him and stepped into the crowd of others. She recognized few, so she made sure to remain close to Douglas.

Douglas was worried Jane was going to end up spending an eternity sorting everything out in her room, but fortunately his worry was pointless, Jane didn't even spend a minute in there. While waiting, he leaned against a wall and studied his artificial arm, examining every little nook and cranny that something could be shoved into and used to break his arm. He would need to make sure his arm was covered, his sleeves only concealed the weak spots, what if one of these Anathians turned hostile and found a joint by chance? He was worrying too much, he needed more sleep and less work.

"Are you ready for all of this?"
"The sooner we can find a conclusion, the better." Douglas replied, "I just want Earth to be like it was when I was little."
With that, he followed Jane to the bridge.

Upon arriving at the Bridge, Douglas realised he and Jane were the last ones there. Being late was certainly a novelty for him.
"Sorry for being so late." Douglas apologised as he saluted the Captain, "I hope I haven't delayed anything."
Looking around the room, Douglas saw a couple of faces he didn't know. There was a short young man with, long, straggly, black hair and a woman about the same age with blonde hair that was so unkempt it almost looked like a haystack. He'd have to get acquainted with the rest of the crew soon, he'd only talked to Jane, Jaron and Cap so far.

Tienette tried to hold back a snicker, but it came out anyways "Well, it's good you've been promoted to something useful" she whispered to Frank, dead serious. The last job he had when they met, could have been done by an alarmclock. She looked over to the captain, but back at the door when it swung open. The man walking in, not one it hurt to look at, gave her a weird look. She returned it, her face hardening as if it really did hurt to look at him. When he did look away, she touched her face to see if she had something there. She didn't... She then ran a hand through her hair. It was hopelessly sticking out in all directions... She rolled her eyes. Really! Messy hair, that was something to see, the guy had a freaking mechanical arm! She undid her hair band and brushed the top of her head with her fingers before putting the rest up into an intentionally messy, high set ponytail. It would be a nightmare to get it out, but it looked more like it was supposed to be like that. She frowned slightly at the woman that walked in. How did she keep up her looks? Hell, even Franks hair was less messy than hers. She shook her head, angry at her self, then looked at the captain. She was not high maintenance, and she didn't care, she strictly told herself. It wasn't that she didn't take care of herself, she did, the ship just didn't have a hairdresser. She had been so caught up in her training and work that she hadn't really given it any though either... She kept internally arguing with her self, looking stiffly in front of her self, waiting for anything else to place her focus on.

Frank looked to the two newcomers when Tienette snickered. He couldn't care less what she thought. The newcomers saluted the captain, and for a second he wondered if he should have done it as well, but he didn't care to get up there and present himself for a pointless ritual. At least he could say that he had not been told to do so. He turned a curious eye to Tienette when she messed with her hair, then he smiled and looked at the guy with the weird arm and back at her. "know him?" he wispered

Tienette turned her torso and glared at Frank, her eyes would have killed him if they could. She straightened up, wiping away her bangs "Off course I don't" she said, as if that was very obvious. She nodded over to where he had stood, there was screens, metallic surfaces and glass "caught my own reflection and realized my hair was messy" she stated simply, smiling a little forced at him, then looking ahead. She wouldn't explain herself to him, no way.

"still is" he half snickered while trying to look at the captain and not minding her. The woman had little reason feeling self-conscious, as except for the hair she was looking smashing. To Frank everyone seemed to be a bit tired-looking, not like in the old TV series where all space crew looked like they just had been by a spa before waking up and going to work. And few characters ever had his job, but he didn't like getting stuck thinking about the inconsistencies of TV or movies.

Julian Russell looked about and smiled. They were all here now. It was time. Scott and Athena had just arrived as well. Julian stood before his team, and the other crew members, knowing what was ahead. He hadn't any idea, however, how it would all end, how the journey would close.

"Your attention, please?"

There would be casualties. How they would turn up was a matter to be determined later, but for now there was time to speak with the team, the team that might or might not make it through the coming conflict.

"For some of you, home lies at the end of the road," he began, pacing. "For others, the case is not so. However, your help is definitely more than appreciated."

He looked to Tyriel as he said this.

"We're in for a fight like no other. The Congregate is like no foe humanity, or any alien race, I believe, has ever faced. They seem invincible, an insurmountable obstacle."

He looked to each of them as he went on: Andreah, Punknife, Greer, Jane, Tyriel, and even the two extremely talkative non-team members up ahead, Tienette and Frank. He knew Athena would do fine, but had a feeling Scott might be needing a little more than just help from Tyriel. He was getting a bit older.

"But every evil has their Waterloo," said the captain. "Take that to heart. This opponent will break, and it won't be because they're weak. It'll be because we are strongly united under a single banner."

He looked down to Jaron and said, "Greer, take us out."

Re: Renaissance

alright, not a problem. Just wished someone let me know, so i wasn't lost and didn't know what was going on.

Re: Renaissance

Not exactly. Per the messages I'm getting, life decided to get in most of our ways at the wrong time.

Re: Renaissance

Did everyone leave or something?

Re: Renaissance

Heh- that's convenient! (sort of)
Speaking of inactivity, I'll be away for 10 days, starting this Friday.
Then I'll be back for 3 more days.. (14, 15, 16)
...And then I'll be away again for another 11, until the 27th...
Just a heads up! I'm so sorry for my future inactivity ;_;

Re: Renaissance

I won't be able to post again until the 30th. I'll be in New York and VERY busy. Rest assured, I'm here until 3:00 PM EST today....which isn't that far from now.....so yeah..... o.O

Re: Renaissance

Hey, guys. I think I owe you all (or at least those of you who've been here the longest) a sincere apology. I've been getting pounded with work from the theater group I'm a part of since just after I started the RP. I had no idea such a thing would occur. I understand that that justifies nothing, but I want you to know I do care about the story we are telling. I have written the entire thing out, form the planets we visit in the beginning, to a certain NEW location we'll see, to Earth, to something else...

I'm prepared to give you guys my all. If it's not enough, I apologize. But hang in there. Soon the activities of my theater group will die down and I'll be able to be more active. Know this though, the first planet we're hitting is an action planet, regardless of whether we find "what we're looking for." You'll have to wait and see.

Sincerely,

The Elder Knight

Re: Renaissance

Welcome to the tale, Frank!

Re: Renaissance

I hope you're all enjoying the story so far! I've got some BIG twists planned that'll really get things going. Nothing so huge it loses the heart that's been created thus far, but defintely some action sequences and huge missions that'll take tactical skills to conquer. I've even, in the final few missions, implemented a few moments where critical decisions can literally cause the downfall or salvation of certain characters. You'll have to wait and see what that's all about, but have faith! This is just the first chapter.

Oh, and Alex, I've posted a scene where Cap talks to Jane. :)

Re: Renaissance

We're almost ready for lift off, Death!

Re: Renaissance

When do we get under way? I'm dying to get some action in, and fight to the death (not me, I mean actual dying) against the enemy, or enemies

Re: Renaissance

Like Flexar, my post would be rather sorry and boring... I'm also trying to do all of this on a touch screen phone, so yeah.... My phone, I use with my lapdock won't be fixed until Tuesday.

Re: Renaissance

The last post I made with Cap was one where he spoke to you. Still kinda waiting on a reply...

Re: Renaissance

I would post, but I can't really see any opportunities for Doug to do anything at the moment without making the post incredibly boring.

Re: Renaissance

Hey, I've noticed a bit of a lull in Flex's and Alex's activity. You guys all right? Maybe I'm just having too much activity? xD

Re: Renaissance

And CHECK the LORE UPDATE I just posted! :D

Re: Renaissance

Oh, incidently, everyone check out the new locations in the "Places" tab. I've also added a new appearance for Cap if he ever changes clothes, as characters often should but don't in games and films. xD I always thought seeing their closets would be interesting.

Re: Renaissance

Ah, thank you! I definitely recognize Mass Effect images ;o

Re: Renaissance

Death, check the description of the Chief Engineer character I've created. :) I'm making Doctor Coles soon Andreah! Sorry if the character descriptions are brief. They aren't meant to be main characters.

Re: Renaissance

And so the next chapter has begun.
