Secure. Contain. Protect.

a topic in Interest Checks, a part of the RPG forum.

Thinking about starting a roleplay, but don't have the idea completely finished? Post it here, not in the main OOC forum!

Secure. Contain. Protect.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Tenno, Warbound Oni on Thu May 08, 2014 9:09 pm

Mankind in its present state has been around for a quarter of a million years, yet only the last 4,000 have been of any significance.

So, what did we do for nearly 250,000 years? We huddled in caves and around small fires, fearful of the things that we didn't understand. It was more than explaining why the sun came up, it was the mystery of enormous birds with heads of men and rocks that came to life. So we called them 'gods' and 'demons', begged them to spare us, and prayed for salvation.

In time, their numbers dwindled and ours rose. The world began to make more sense when there were fewer things to fear, yet the unexplained can never truly go away, as if the universe demands the absurd and impossible.

Mankind must not go back to hiding in fear. No one else will protect us, and we must stand up for ourselves.

While the rest of mankind dwells in the light, we must stand in the darkness to fight it, contain it, and shield it from the eyes of the public, so that others may live in a sane and normal world.

ImageWe secure. We contain. We protect.

— The Administrator


Mission Statement

Operating clandestine and worldwide, the Foundation operates beyond jurisdiction, empowered and entrusted by every major national government with the task of containing anomalous objects, entities, and phenomena. These anomalies pose a significant threat to global security by threatening either physical or psychological harm.

The Foundation operates to maintain normalcy, so that the worldwide civilian population can live and go on with their daily lives without fear, mistrust, or doubt in their personal beliefs, and to maintain human independence from extraterrestrial, extradimensional, and other extranormal influence.

Our mission is three-fold:

Secure
The Foundation secures anomalies with the goal of preventing them from falling into the hands of civilian or rival agencies, through extensive observation and surveillance and by acting to intercept such anomalies at the earliest opportunity.

Contain
The Foundation contains anomalies with the goal of preventing their influence or effects from spreading, by either by relocating, concealing, or dismantling such anomalies or by suppressing or preventing public dissemination of knowledge thereof.

Protect
The Foundation protects humanity from the effects of such anomalies as well as the anomalies themselves until such time that they are either fully understood and new theories of science can be devised based on their properties and behavior. The Foundation may also neutralize or destroy anomalies as an option of last resort, if they are determined to be too dangerous to be contained.

Image
Setting:
Setting, while it can and will actively change, will heavily revolve around the activities and whereabouts of the Foundation and its staff. The Foundation is an all-but-too-human organization with vast but limited power attempting to protect the rest of humanity by containing and studying anomalous objects and entities. They are the last bastion of security in a world where natural laws rapidly break down. There to protect humanity from the things that go bump in the night, from people who wield power beyond mortal understanding. Here to make the world a safer place. However, they are far from white knights, but neither are they villains.

Just as location doesn't matter, neither does time period. This roleplay's universe is flexible and can theoretically function in any era. Modern is of course the best, futuristic can just as easily work with adjustments, and anything from Victorian to Roaring Twenties will make for an interesting and plausible twist as well. This aspect will be decided by myself and whoever is most qualified to be the co-gm on this project.

Plot:
It is crucial that everyone understand this is not a clone of Supernatural, Hellblazer, Grimm, Men In Black, Ghost Busters, or any other similar media. Its more serious and based in a World of the Weird... if anything, you can compare it to the Twilight Zone or X-Files. The focus of the story will surround anomalous locations and objects, and occasionally humanoids and creatures. So while it will have Spirits like Supernatural, Aliens like Men In Black, or Demons like Hellblazer, its a lot more gritty, dark, and horror centered like The Conjuring and/or Insidious. The story will take the form of various case files with players controlling the staff, whether they be a Researcher, Field Agent, Task Force Operative, Site Director, etc... any overarching plot has yet to be determined.

About:
This Interest Check is purely just that. I'm shopping this idea around for the simple reason of seeing who might want to be part of its existence. As of now, I do not intend on putting any effort into creating this roleplay. If enough people want to join and I can find a skilled co-gm, then the construction process will begin. So if anyone likes what they see and would enjoy such a roleplay, let me know via post here.

I am well-versed in the SCP universe and have yet to find a decent group of people interested enough to get an RP going. I am very interested in this though!

So many different angles to play!

One particular idea is where one person plays an actual SCP while the other play researchers gathering data on it.

First respond field agents also sound like it might be fun. Our job would be to go to an area with anomalous activity and figure out if the cause is an SCP.

We could also play with the whole D-class personal a bit. Perhaps we're D-class personal given charge of taking care of a single SCP which we eventually bond with, and when an extermination is ordered we try to break it out.

OORRRR if we wanted to get meta, we could play a group of SCPs on the run from the Foundation.

Those are just the ideas off the top of my head.

I was planning on a dynamic similar to your second suggestion. Through that setup, your other suggestions become possible. Our characters are elite operatives, each with their own special field of expertise. We are always first on the scene and equipped with enough personnel to adapt to any scenario. One case could have us inspecting a possible SCP, while another could have us escorting a SCP to containment or on containment duty when a mistake leads to a breech in security.

I have some knowledge about the SCP, and this sounds really interesting! About how many people do you want to RP with? I personally would prefer a modern setting, but I'm fine with any time period.

A small squad is the bare minimal I wanted to start with in terms of IC, so it would be the same for OOC. This would mean 5 players, including myself. However, I would allow the cast to grow moderately to about 8 players before cutting off acceptance.

I had a rather detailed reply typed, but apparently I can't post links or something? I don't know since I was able to do it this time... so forgive me for being brief.

Since my minimal player count has been reached, meaning I will start working on the roleplay. Even though I know nothing is guaranteed, I would like some reassurance from you guys. To ease my mind, I would appreciated if y'all showed me character concepts. All I need is a character description as well as the following: Security Clarence Level, Personnel Classification, and Staff Title. Use this link (http://www.scp-wiki.net/security-clearance-levels) as source for the required information. I will be regurgitating a lot of other things from the site, so be sure to explore it and hopefully be inspired.

Okay, before I complete my character description, are only "humans" allowed to be in the Foundation or can there be other "beings" enlisted? As soon as you reply I can finish up Carlos Noivera.

Only humans.

I considered mild paranormals, like mediums and such... but I decided against it. For now.

Any restrictions? Should our security clearance be 1-2?

I'm also guessing either C or D personal classification.

Our characters can have pre-existing histories within the Foundation before the events of the roleplay begin. So just about any clearance level and classification is allowed. The only restrictions you all have are as follows: no admin staff titles, no class A characters, and no clearance level above 3. Characters with Level 4 Clearance with the title of Site Directors, Security Directors, or Mobile Task Force Commanders will have to talk to me directly. I will probably only allow one other beside myself, if I even decide to make my character that highly ranked.

Tenno is working on another RP he's trying to get up and started before he starts this one. This was to gauge interest and see how many would be interested. If you are interested then let him know, and when he finishes up the other RP, he'll get started on this one for you all. As it says in the post above.

But I'm not rushing anyone since I won't be able to start this until I get my other roleplay up


Feel free to utilize the information on the first page though and get a little familiarized with what he's wanting and start working on your character concept is all I can tell you........ :)

Think of me as just a simple humble RPer who, like you, wants to participate in something grand. Still I would wait for final word from Tenno on anything concerning THIS RP!
