Introduction

~Prologue~
"What's our current location?"
"Sir, the cordinates are unknown. We are completely without navigation, sir!"
The spaceship slightly moved in it's current track, while it was traveling through the great measurements of space. Something was not right. The ship shook and shook, The navigation was deactivated and the vision during the meteor-shower the ship was traveling through, was blurry. Several chunks of spacestone flung at the traveling object as it slowly started losing control.
"Sir! Orders please, Sir!" The steersman watched the damage increasing with a anticipated look on his face, almost frightened for what could happen. What if they would lose control, what if one of the Engines would fail?!
"Sir! Drive 4B has shut down Sir! Drive 4B has shut down! Orders, Sir!" Chaos in the cockpit. Drive 4B, one of the most important Engines has shutten down, part of the motherengine failed.
But it was quiet from the commanders side.
Very quiet.
"Sir?!" The steersman slightly looked over his shoulder, trying to keep the spaceship in control at the same time.
"Locate nearest landing possibility." He muttered, staring at the emtpy space with chunks of spacerock in front of him.
A few beeps and the nearest landing position was calculated. A soft, robotic woman voice was heard from the announcer in the cockpit, warning the crew for what would come.
Planet: Earth. Terrain: Rough. Oxygen: Unable to calculate. Unable to calculate landing positions. Do not intend to land. I repeat: Do not intend to land.
For a moment, nothing happened in the cockpit, and the commander raised his deep voice.
"I said: land."
"But Sir! Oxygen calculations are unclear, Sir! We don't have a proper landing site!"
The commander frowned, thought for a bit, he turned around.
"It's an order." He muttered, ignoring all the warnings he was given by his crew, and even the calculations that were made by his own spaceship. He shook his head in despair, and left the cockpit without a single hesistation. He did not want to see them crashing down to the nearest planet possible, because he knew.
It would happen.


~Plotline~
It's the year 3054. You and your crew crashed down on planet earth, but it's not planet earth as we know it. It changed, it evolved. In ways and manners we could never think of. Inhabitants are forced by this environment to become new, vicious evolutions, and humanity is completely annihilated. Surviving would haven't been a problem, if there only was a proper oxygen level and if food wasn't part of the vicious foodchain where you are on the bottom of the list, and if everything that lived on this planet wasn't set to kill you.
Your ship was carrying an enormous egg: an essential part of the studies of further evolution and an important part of the plan to stop further evolutions to be agressive, violent, just like the inhabitants of this world you crashed on.
It's your task to find it back in these circumstances: The creature that your spaceship was carrying. An Alien: An extremely aggresive creature that was planned to be part of this research. But now, it was released, and it was set on hunting down everything that is not part of this planet, and even that what is part of it. It's your task to find it, kill it, take it back with you, to avoid further abandonment of the planet, to avoid being killed.
But don't die.
Don't forget to survive.


~The planet~
Planet earth is what we are talking about.
But, it's not the planet as how you know it. Human structures completely vanished and a new prehistoric era has begun. The natural structures appear almost alien, enormous cliffs and unique stone structures. Overall, the terrain is rough. Forests stretch out over uncalculateable kilometers and seas contain monsters you only could have think of in fairytales when you were little. Plants are thrice it's regular size and trees tower up into the sky, making it unable to see the hiding places of the evolutions of animals we used to know. Snake and lizard hybrids, Baboons twice the size and twice as mighty in strength, and birds the size of a plane. Insects even became vicious, often poisonous creatures. Oxygen is scarce, be careful. Temperatures change quickly, to unbearable heats or colds.


~Equipment~
Your equipment consists of the following:

-A suit adjusted to your body sizes and temperatures.
It does not keep you protected from the temperature changes. Your suit has the ability to notice oxygen supplance, it turns lighter when you find trouble breathing and when you need to inhale one of the oxygen pods you are carrying. It does not have healing abilities, but it does slow down possible infections of wounds. Furthermore, your suit is perfect for swimming, since it's structure is alike with dolphin skin. A communicating gadget is installed, and can be accesed by entering a personal code. It consists of a In-built mapping system and automatically maps the area around you.

-12 oxygen pods
Every crewmember is carrying 12 oxygen pods. These oxygen bods are carried by a vacuum bag and can be accesed by a button on the bag. Important: Every pod has a duration of 24 hours, use them with caution! 12 pods means you can survive 12 days, including the night.

-Adjustable weaponing gadget
A light-saber like gadget. It is a handfitting stick of approximately 40Cm length. The weaponing can be adjusted bu pressing a button in the middle of the object. The weaponing ranges in from knives to daggers and daggers to curved swords. The material of the weapons are plasma-like, but has the structure and strength of steel.

-Artifical vitamins and medicine
You are carrying two antidotes, several tablets to replenish vitamins, and a single band-aid with the needed supplies to properly apply it to the body. Use it carefully!


~Starting location~
Now the ship crashed, and you are located on the bottom of a big cliff. You are locked in the rubbish and you'll need to find a way out. However, the cliff, it's impossible to climb it. The other way, though, is a overgrown forest site, filled with all kinds of vicious predators. But it's treadable. Just be careful. Your first task is to get out of the ship as soon as possible, and find a way through the forest, after that, you will be able to communicate with the crewmembers for further decisions and plans. Good luck!


~Important guidelines for character creation~
Your character should include a few additional things apart from the basic creation progress that is esential for the roleplay. These things include:
-Crew position
-Injuries caused by the crash
-Any additional health/psychical conditions
-The way of how your character processes the spaceship crash trauma
-Additional items your character is carrying (Things like spaceship rubbish, necklaces, bracelets, just the small things. NO additional weapons or artifacts!)

Toggle Rules

~Rules~
1) Everyone is allowed one character, the roleplay is allowed four members!
2) Please do not create characters that do not fit the setting. This is a futuristic roleplay, not a present time roleplay.
3) Like every roleplay, controlling a character that is not yours, is not allowed.
4) I chose the option 'Require Character Approval' for a reason. Characters that are to my feeling incomplete or underdevelopped, won't be accepted.
5) Violence is allowed, as long as you keep it readable for the others.
6) Do not kill other characters without their permission! Discuss this first. Letting your own character die is allowed, it's your character after all.
7) We all know that one-liners are not very helpful. They don't have much content, they don't keep the story rolling and they basically hold up the whole setting. Don't do it!
8) Detail is highly appreciated, just don't make it overly detailed.
9) Furthermore, if you have any questions, just ask them.

~Plotline Need-to-knows~
1) The planet you crashed on has a low containt of oxygen. Remember that this influences your behaviour, your stamina, etc.
2) Fresh oxygen can be obtained by using oxygen pods: Every crew member is wearing exactly 12 oxygen pods that will function each for 24 hours. This means you can survive 12 days.
3) The whole plot is about surviving and killing the experiment, but don't go around like: '-Kills the experiment everyone lives a happy after the end lolol yolo-' It ruins the whole story!
4) Remember: The planet is abandoned. So other than your crewmembers, not any human will appear. This means: no side characters, except for the animals.

Slowly Haruko and the beast circled each other, sizing the enemy before launching another attack. The animal was one, he had never seen before, a bit like a mix between a bear and a bat, but that hardly could be possible, right? Then again, what was not possible in this universe? In all the years travelling through space he had seen and heard more outlandish things than he would have ever managed to imagine, so why shouldn't such a creature exist on this weird planet. Really, nothing should be able to shock him any longer.

Again, with a deep growl the beast jumped at him, but this time Haruko was prepared better for the attack and smoothly side-stepped the creature's long claws. In a swift move, he brought up his sword and rammed it into the animal's thigh, eliciting a pained roar. Haruko grinned predatorily, eyes glinting with barely supressed excitement. Although the fight was very dangerous, he did enjoy the rush that came with the adrenalin and it had been a while since he was involved in a real fight like that.
One of the large wings came swinging at his head and only at the last second Haruko managed to duck under the leathery appendix, not noticing the claw soaring at him from the other side. "AH!" he exlaimed, as pained shot through his side where the creature had managed to strike him. Haruko stumbled backwards, away from it and clutched his side with his left hand, keeping himself upright by using his sword as a crutch. Out of the corner of his eyes, he could see Sam struggling with the other beast, several scratches adorning his face. Still, he was managing, so Haruko turned his attention back to the danger towering over him.

Suddenly though, the creatures turned away from their prey and fled and Haruko breathed a sigh of relief. Sweat was tickling down his face and he rubbed it off with his hand after putting hin weapon away. "Brilliant fight, huh?" he stumbled over to the other two with a grin on his face. He looked down at Sam who sported an equally broad smile and fell to his knees next to him. "We did it!" he agreed with the sentiment.

"Ofcourse we did it. After all, this is our planet, right?" He grinned, touching his face slightly. He could feel the blood dripping across his eye, as it was his nose and forehead that was injured.
"Oh well, that'll heal." He muttered as he turned to Haruko, checking if he was fully okay. His eyes seemed different from before; a fierce and confident look that he barely had seen before with Haruko. A wide grin appeared and he pushed Haruko over for a moment.
"You have real fighting spirit, can you fight this beast!?" He yelled, roaring like a tiger and clawing at him, without touching him. Though, he couldn't hel but burst into laughter because of this weird theatre he just did. You needed to be upbeat, right? If you wanted to survive, being cold and sober was not something that would help.

The guys had been sitting for a while, since their energy would be depleted by now, even after a good night rest. Sam didn't really care, even when this place was dangerous, as long as he was with his friends, he was fine. Sam looked over at Haruko and chuckled. "Thinking back, those animals are whimps. Being scared off by guys like us. I understand, though. I'm as frightening as a tiger." he said, making the roaring noise he made before. If it wasn't sam, you would almost think this guy had issues.

Haruko grinned down at Sam. He also was quite happy to see that they came out of this fight relatively unharmed. Those creatures could have seriously hurt them, but somehow luck had been on their side this time. "Wha....?" He was surprised when suddenly Sam pushed him over, but couldn't keep from laughing loudly at his friends antics. That guy really knew how to lighten the mood and find an outlet for the rest of the adrenalin which was still cursing through their veins.

Haruko laughed and pretended to fight Sam. "Oh no!" he exclaimed dramatically, "Help! The beast is upon me!" He laughed again and smiled up at his friend. "You really make a convincing tiger, Sam." he told him, chuckling warmly. "No wonder these animals ran away like that, you must have scared them off."
He lay down against the soft grass ad looked up into the clear sky with a sigh. This planet was actually quite beautiful ... if there was only air to breath and no predatory creatures. He looked over at Sam and smirked slightly. It was really great to just hang out with him for a while. Should they ever make it off this planet, then he would definitely try to continue building a friendship with him. "Should we get going?" he asked after a while. Haruko really was getting quite hungry and they should try to hunt for something edible.

Sam laughed at Haruko's comment and laid down in the grass for a bit, but got up instantly when a small stick was prodding in the back of his head. He mutttered something that sounded like 'I'm not made for the nature.' And looked back to Haruko. He asked him if they would get going, and Sam nodded, eventhough he would have wanted to rest a little more and talk with him, but they couldn't be procrastinating forever.
"Good idea." He said as he got up, steadier than before, realizing his leg was healing.

"....Maybe we should try out the fruits after all." Sam muttered, giving Haruko the right to lash out at him for not listening. Hunting down food would be dangerous, and fruits would be more easier to get since fruits didn't move. Sam looked around for a sign for food, and paused when he saw a few red apple-like figures hanging on a small bush.
"I don't remember apples growing on bushes, but we could give it a try." He said, noting that they could be posionous. Maybe they could cook them?

"This wasn't a bad idea after all." Sam mumbled under a few munches. The fruits were more juicy than he could ever remember from an apple, maybe because they didn't have some in so long. The decided to make a fire and put the fruits on a stick and heaten them up, to avoid possible posioning. And if they'd get posioned, they would have the antidotes, so danger wasn't really there.
"Hey, Haruko. I've never heard you talking about your family." Sam suddenly started, as he was thinking of his father. Making him slightly sad, but he just ignored that feeling, hoping a conversation would cheer him up.

Haruko laughed at Sam's muttered comment and shook his head. He himself loved the be outside in the nature, feeling the wind in his hair and the warm sun on his face. The fresh smell of the world never failed to cheer him up and give him strenght, and as they were always travelling with spaceships, they rarely saw any sort of nature for months on end which could be quite depressing at times. Always being locked up in the ship... But alas, that was the life they had chosen and it often was quite interesting, so he really shouldn't complain.

They got up from their place on the grass and started looking for something to eat. Haruko swallowed a comment about having said so before, but couldn't hide his smirk when Sam agreed to look for fruits instead. If he was honest, he was childishly happy to be getting his fruits after all, but tried to hide his beaming smile as much as possible, it was rather embarrassing after all.
He walked over to the bush Sam had pointed out and pulled of one of the apples, sniffing slightly at it. It really did smell quite sweet and he took a small bite of it. "You're right." he agreed. "They are delicious!" Haruko bit into the fruit again, sticky juice running down his chin, though he didn't care. He was just glad that they could finally have something to eat and something so nice made it even better. He moved closer to the fire, as the air had cooled considerably since this morning and rubbed his hands together.

Haruko was slightly startled at Sam's question regarding his family, and looked thoughtfully at the other boy. He usually didn't talk much about his family, not because something bad had happened to him in his childhood or anything like that, but for the simple reason that he didn't know what to tell others. "There isn't really much to tell you, Sam. My parents died when I was ... " he thought back to what he had been told as he could barely remember the incident, "four, I think..." He shook his head. "Anyway, they were part of a crew of a spaceship as well and when they died and I was given to Lucian, he was the ship doctor there and he raised me till I was fourteen and then I joined your father's crew to be trained in medicine as well." Haruko's expression was a bit sad, as he just now noticed how long it had been since he had last seen his foster-father. Lucian was not really the father type, more like a mentor, but Haruko cared much for him as he was the only family he had left.
"What about your family, Sam?" he asked the other boy, "Do you have any family besides your father?"

It's not a problem at all! Just use your imagination, and everything will be fine.

Re: Made of Steel

Hi, i find this idea rather interesting, but I have never seen the movie "After Earth". would that be a problem? To know what kind of creatures are living on the planet? or can i just make that up?
