Tips: 0.00 INK Postby Mia Siserae on Tue Nov 29, 2005 10:46 pm

I'm going for the 3 years so our characters won't be so old, and we can patch things up that are happening now.

Tips: 0.00 INK Postby SSJHunterKiller on Wed Nov 30, 2005 10:20 am

As much as I'd love to continue from where we are right now, personally I believe that too many of the major players have dropped out. I mean, both the people that were actually causing a threat are gone, Jyotika and TJ. So what's that leave us with? A bunch of people that have weapons that desire nothing but peace. And either way we're going to need a reason to keep the weapons around, which I believe Kiyoshi has solved with the Fre Faction, but like stated above, as good as Kiyoshi is, he isn't a one man army.

So I'm going to go ahead a cast my vote for three years as well. It's not too long a time period so the characters will closer to who they are now than if we jumped 10-20 years. And three years is just long enough for someone of a group to rise up against the peace.

Actually if the 3 year thing is done we do have someone who is going to play a very dangerous threat. Not sure how much I should discuss, but it will be interesting. So it won't all be all my FRE Faction nonsense, for which I am glad.

We do?
That's great. Give a whole new spin and takes some weight off your shoulders as well right? I mean, you're not playing the new threat are you?

Great, now we're going to force Val to play the guessing game again. And as soon as I get close it'll be "well you're just going to have to wait and see".

I hate waiting Kiyoshi! But I'm sure it'll be worth it if you've planned it.

I haven't planned it, it's just what was talked about between a member and I last night, about how to get the ball rolling again. I only made a few suggestions. Trust me, it'll be good. Furthermore, it'll also leave things open for those who want to have a more peaceful RP than those of us who'd like a little bit more action.

Well I think most of the people that do actually participate have cast their votes. I say we wait till either next week or the week after to fully jump ahead 3 years.

Within that time certain loose ends can be tied up. First off, if we are to do this jump, we must decide on the hard facts of what happened in AC 199. If we go with the backstory I proposed, I'm going to have to make some edits. Such as since Iness Hell was recently recovered, Kiyoshi will pilot that (plus that would make the final more significant since well Cloud and Kiyoshi were very close).

If we do want to go with that, I'd like to RP up until the point where the }{G, Caligo Umbra, and Defenders, officially form the Trinity Alliance. This would require someone to RP as the remaining Blace Lowe forces, which I am willing to do if no one else wants to. Though that means I'm going to have to be RP-ing alot. I have to RP as Zach and the rest of the Defenders (since Zach is still away), my people of the L3 Defense Force, Kiyoshi, and possibly the FRE Faction.

Unless everyone just wants to stop and do the three year jump anyway. It's up to everyone else.

Personally I'd like to do the jump and just make some good posts on what happened. Just big background information posts. That way the transition can be made quickly and before we lose members. but that does mean i'll have maybe 2 or 3 posts to do for the year 199, after the trinity alliance.

Man Kiyoshi, don't put too much strain on yourself. I'll glady take over some of the rolls if you want me to, I mean the only thing that will change is the ammount of money I get. Not like I have a life that it will hinder or anything.

Well if you want to act like one of the followers of Blace Lowe and make it so he rises up and rallies the rest of them together you can.

I think now we're going to do up to the funeral for Kaden, just cause a certain someone wants to RP one last time. Then it's probably jump time.

I've got everything done that I need to have done for the Caligo Umbra and it's members to be melded into the Trinity Alliance. And I've got the characters worked out as well.

As a result of the fighting Val will end up becoming more cold towards people in general, save for maybe 2 or 3 and will spend almost every waking hour training to become a better fighter and pilot. He also develops a sever hatred for the FRE-Faction as a result of them dropping the colony. As Val hates the pointless sacrifice of soldiers and especially civilians, he took this as a person insult.

Takimi will have learned to accept her freedom as a gift and not something new a frightening. She;ll have finally adapted to a "normal" life during that time and has become the mother of Val's child (yet to be named but will be maybe 2 years old). Takimi, though originally reluctant to let Val go, began supporting him once the colony had been dropped on her original home.

James, having finally finished the Hyperion, will be stationed with the Trinity Alliance mechanics where ever the main base where the Mobile Suits, Gundams, and ships will be stored.

Lina, having a broken heart over losing Val will have found comfort in the arms of James and the two got married shorty after the formation of the Trinity Alliance. Lina, along with her husband will also end up being stationed where ever the most Mobile suits will end up being held.

Zel, seeing as I only used him twice, will have died when the colony was dropped as he was in Asia keeping track of things (Well that's where he was supposed to be, but I never got around to putting him there, as seeing as I only used him twice, I see no reason to keep him around. So, sorry Zel, but you're officially dead).

Kiyoshi Kazami- During the final battle "The Battle of Heaven's Light" Kiyoshi fights Commander Harrison of the FRE Faction using Cloud's old Gundam Iness Hell. The battle is long and difficult but Kiyoshi does manage to beat Harrison. The Iness Hell is badly damaged and most of it's systems begin to fail (partly from the battle, another reason being from the rushed job to get the Gundam in service again), pulled into Earth's gravity well, most of the mobile suit is destroyed from the ride through the atmosphere. Later located by the Trinity Alliance in the North American desert, the suit was near completly totalled, though no body of the pilot was found. The Trinity Alliance issued a statement that Kiyoshi Kazami died in the Battle of Heaven's Light.

Commander Han Richards - Unable to pilot a mobile suit for most of the remainder of the war, Han took the job as Acting Captain on the Pegasus. This allowed Kiyoshi to be more focused on giving orders to the mobile suit teams within the battle. Though, during the Battle of Heaven's Light, Han did return to pilot the recovered Tallgeese II that had been upgraded on the Pegasus. After the battle was over and won, Han Richards was made Captain of the new warship Rysen.

Ensign Eota Mars and Ensign Base Rynolds - Eota and Base piloted the two Gundam Cygnus units in the last battle of the War of AC 199. Become skilled pilots, they were advanced to the rank of Leutinant. The two joined up with Captain Han when he formed the Vangaurd Prime (named after their former home L3 Prime), to be the third leg of the Trinity Alliance after the }{G disbanded.

Stacy Matta - Stacy Matta became part of the group of mechanics to help service and/or design the mobile suits for the Trinity Alliance. After the war, she also joined the Vangaurd Prime.

Lisa Nichruen - Married Han soon after the war was over and had his child, Aaron Richards. The two live happilly on the Rysen after the war is over.

L3 Defense Force - The L3 Defense Force was renamed the Vangaurd Prime, and became active in trying to prevent or sabotage any FRE Faction actions within the Earth sphere. Captain Han Richards is the leader of the small group, which is considered to be space pirates.

Lord Raphael Winson - Controlling not only L3 but now the L4 colony clusters at the end of the war, Winson hoped to spread his power and ideology through out the rest of the colonies. He has found it difficult to gain power in L1 and L2, but is slowly gaining support within L5.
