Introduction

Image
-a sci-fi roleplay-

Image




ImageIn the year 2489, the old order of nations- the United States, China, Japan, the European Union, Russia, and India- have broken down. But not for the worse- for the better.

In their place comes united leagues, the four "Watchers" of planet Earth. The aspiration for human exploration into Earth spurred multiple programs worldwide to create rockets and colonization vessels, creating millions of job opportunities, wealth, and an era of organized world peace. Everyone was happy- until a Chinese shuttle containing over 20,000 Chinese citizens was shot down from Earth after leaving the atmosphere. Debris and satellite tracking deduced the culprit; the United States. China declared war on the United States and it's allies with the help of the DPRK.

And soon, the world plunged into chaos.



ImageThe year is now 3688, over a millennium after the so called "Third Great War", and space technology has advanced to the point where humans and their factions own almost every inch of the solar system and tens of thousands of star systems around it. The human population is estimated at about 64 trillion, 80 times the population of the 21st century.

Particles called "kagami particles" have been discovered from radioactive material, fueling almost every cannon and gun in the known universe. And the newest addition to science was the Fighter, robots born to fight, and only to fight. They were perfect, and every faction started to utilize them in defense, in hopes that nothing like the Third Great War happened again.

They didn't want their worlds to turn into a desolate, barren piece of rubble, just like Earth, one millennia ago.




ImageBut apparently war was inevitable. The four factions- the imperialistic Haixang Dynasty, the United Federation of Interstellar Powers (UFIP), the innovative Sol Association, and the radical "Z" organization have reached the peak of production, nearing scarcity of natural resources to sustain themselves.

It's a race of survival- and whoever can't win the war is unfit to win. The best pilots have been hand chosen and drafted from the factions, to lead the growing armies of Fighters.

This plan only creates one flaw- after a millennium of peace, people have relationships with individuals from other nations. Will these pilots choose their people over their own lives, or will their personal needs take them over?

The most secretive faction. Claiming to be "the liberators of the people", Z was originally a peaceful protest, until their efforts were ignored and radical leaders went into play. Hundreds of weapons were smuggled out of the Sol Federation, while bases have been erected on hundreds of asteroids and planets across the system. Their sphere of influence is bigger than any faction's, and the two most talented pilots are a part of it.

~

This is a literate RP. If you don't know what that means, then this isn't for you. Please italicize your FC if you've read these rules.

Please ask me first before changing gender or FC. I won't accept random characters.

~

This is a RP with killing. But that doesn't mean you can kill other characters. I will kill them off if they become inactive.

~

I have no post maximum- but please have posts at at least 100 words. No one liners, though. It would be preferred if you added the name of your character at the start of your post using fontmeme or 1001fonts.

~

If you've read this far, add a gif of your FC and the FC you want it to be if you want to change it.


You can make your own CS- I'm not exactly up for making one that may or may not look terrible. If you need help with coding, PM me or someone's profile that looks amazing.

Re: Piercing the Stars

Any ETAs on when we're going to start the RP or are you waiting for all the spots to be filled out? (It doesn't seem likely that they'll all be filled any time soon, unless we go out recruiting.)

Re: Piercing the Stars

@RCJJ23:

Reserved.

Re: Piercing the Stars

I'd like to reserve FC: Raku Ichijou if possible.

Re: Piercing the Stars

@redvsblue I would prefer we discuss in that pad I linked. Also, I don't think that's possible unless you subscribe this topic using one of those buttons you see above the posts.

Re: Piercing the Stars

@Lloyd999

Yeah! That would be great. Why don't you PM me, and we can go from there? Also, I have a question... do you know how I can maybe change a setting on my profile or on the RolePlay in order to recieve notifications that someone has replied?

Re: Piercing the Stars

@Everyone:

You've been reserved. ^^

Re: Piercing the Stars

HiHi,

Just wondering if I can snatch a reservation on FC: Mirai Kuriyama?
Image

Re: Piercing the Stars

@redvsblue in that case, seeing as our reserved characters are friends, do you want to work together to develop their relationship?

Re: Piercing the Stars

Hello, I'd like to request to reserve the Asuna Yuuki face claim, if that's okay.

Image

Re: Piercing the Stars

Oh god, how did I miss that the first time. Anyways, if you could reserve Kaneki Ken for me I'd appreciate it.

Re: Piercing the Stars

I was thinking Tokaku from Akuma No Riddle if thats cool with you :P

Image

Re: Piercing the Stars

      interested, but I'll hold off reserving until I get a better handle of my current workload. don't want to sign up and suddenly have to leave! just wanted to throw that out there <3

      @vocaloid fc thing
      I blame most folks on rpg use tumblr as their fc pics source, and it's actually difficult to make consistent gifs of Vocaloids. This is due to the fact most videos of Vocaloids are from song PV's, and these PV's have varying art styles/very short. Some PV's even simply use the same four images/clips showing different sections and effects.

Re: Piercing the Stars

@Miyer

Reserved. Who did you want to change it to?

@Cornflower

Reserved.

@Fetch

Try reading the rules again, and when you find the secret rule I'll reserve him for you.

Re: Piercing the Stars

Hay, may I please reserve Kano Shuuya seeing as the person who had reserved him cancelled their reservation???

If I can then, would it be cool to change him to her? I would keep the same face claim but it will just add a female member to "2" (she'll basically be an extreme tomboy)

Re: Piercing the Stars

May I reserve FC Kaneki Ken?
Image

Re: Piercing the Stars

Oh god, I'm so sorry. America, right?

Re: Piercing the Stars

@Lloyd999
By the time I'm done typing this your character will be reserved.

Yes, so far I haven't seen any roleplays using a VOCALOID as a face claim. As for "Robocraft", well, I don't exactly know what that is. I searched it up and the robots are more like what you'd see out of a typical mecha anime. They look more like Gardes from Knights of Sidonia than anything else, so if you want to see what that looks like you can.

Judging that I made this fueled by a cup of coffee alone, it would be pretty normal for questions, so don't fret to ask them. There aren't many "worlds" in detail in this roleplay other than the HQs and Z bases. And on the topic of androids- I don't usually prefer them, but in the case of Hatsune Miku, I think I can make an exception. Feel free to make her an android.

Re: Piercing the Stars

Hmm, finally a sci-fi roleplay I just may be interested in, although the plot seems rather open currently. Well, I think it might be a little bit rude to change a face claim, despite how much I dislike being forced to have a face claim, but I think in that case I'll take Hatsune Miku.
Image

Seeing as I've never used this face claim before, I suppose it's nice to have a new experience. Perhaps I'll be interested in this roleplay because I play a crapton of Robocraft, although unlike this roleplay, Robocraft battles take place on Mars and on a glacial planet. I don't imagine many of our battles will take place on planets, if battles will even be all that common, which makes me wonder exactly what will be going on in this roleplay? Like, what's the story? Aside from the war itself, what is it that our characters are going to be involved in? The twist and such.

I may have plenty of questions later, mainly about the world itself (such as the presence of robots, especially considering I've been reading a lot of Asimov lately, currently The Caves of Steel, and I would normally use Miku for a face claim of an android or something, probably because of how much I love the song Hello Planet, among other Sasakure.UK works) but I'll just ask these questions one at a time. Perhaps you could create a thread completely for the sake of explaining aspects of the world. It would be even more fun if all the roleplayers could pitch into the creative process.

Either way, I hope this will be a successful roleplay.

Re: Piercing the Stars

@Cornflower

Something's missing from your reservation. Once you fix it, I'll reserve him for you!
