Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

0 INK

Join the diverse and noble crew of the Umojan Protectorate's flagship, Washington. Explore a realm rarely dwelled in Starcraft and help to create a new and rich story to compliment the already cultured universe.

1,730 readers have visited Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington since Jacker created it.

Introduction

The battlecruiser Washington is the flagship of the Umojan Protectorate. Shape wise, it is nothing more than an older Behemoth class warship with wider attachments between the rim and superstructure that support larger cargo bays than the norm. However, all of its systems have been upgraded to modern standards. Some are even superior to the Dominion's Minotaur counterparts. The Washington has been known to be called a combat carrier, as its hangars are capable of supporting a larger compliment of fighters than any other Minotaur or Behemoth class. These hangars are also capable of supporting smaller Protoss vessels as well. (read more on the Protoss below.)

Setting

The roleplay will pick up right before the Zerg invasion in Starcraft 2. The Washington will begin orbiting around Umoja. In this time of relative tranquility in the Koprulu Sector The Umojans have entered a shaky alliance with the Morians and are still being blockaded by Dominion ships, even four years after the severing of their alliance. The food shortage has become so bad that Military vessels have been pressed to bring food to their own people. Though this peaceful faction has very impressive technology, due to the lacking economy Umojan engineers have been known to upgrade older ships' subsystems instead of building new ones from scratch.

The Government of Umoja is contemplating to threaten war with the Dominion, for despite the massive population superiority of the latter, the Umojans know any war would be costly for the Mengsk. Though lacking in territory and population, the Umojans still posses the advantage of advanced technology and a population willing to fight for the government they love. Despite this and many believing that a war is inevitable , Minister Jorgensen, commander and chief of the Umojans, is doing whatever he can to stay non-confrontational with the tyrannical emperor, hoping a compromise can come about that will allow trade to once again commence in full force with Moria or even the Dominion.

The Umojans are in contact with a small group of Protoss refugees from Auir who have decided to settle on a planet in their space. They are on peaceful, diplomatic terms, but the Protoss refuse to share their technology. However, the Protoss do sympathize with the Umojans and have agreed to lend aid in fetching food for their people.

Objectives

Though they beckon the call of Fleet Command, they are obliged to conduct independent missions on their own, so long as do not violate their standing orders. These are:

1. Do not engage the Dominion under any circumstances unless in a defensive action. Do not cross into the neutral zone between Dominion and Umojan space.
2. Assist any Morian or Civilian vessels against rogue threats, and in the Morian's case, Dominion threats. Do not assist civilian transports attacked trying to run the Dominion's blockade.
3. Attempting to run the blockade is permitted. If successful, gather whatever food and supplies you can while on the other side.
4. If number three is successful, do not enter Dominion space.
5. Do not negotiate with the outlaws of the Dominion, particularly those of Raynor's Raiders.

Some, but not all, of the independent goals the ship, and the Umojans in general wish to achieve are:
1. Finding and entering in negotiations with more Protoss refugees, or if possible finding the Protoss world of Shakurus where the Umojans new allies have said that the whole of their species as relocated to. The establishment of diplomatic relations with them is permitted as well.
2. Periodically passing by Char for scans of the system.
3. As said above, smuggling food.
4. Crippling any pirate active in Umojan and Morian space.
5. Studying unexplored planets and anomalies.
6. Dealing with trouble on Umojan and Morian colonies as well as the Protoss' refugees world, be it civil, natural, or external.
7. Basically being a crapsack world's Enterprise.

Characters

Those aboard the ship include marines, helmsman, gunners, mercenaries, a Morian detachment an exchange program long going on, civilian scientists, a small Protoss detachment, a few Zerg specimens, officers, pilots, and whatever you can think of that'd make sense being there.

Faction: (Necessary, if you are not part of the Umojan Protectorate per say and are part of the Protoss refugee faction or Morians for instance, you could be under command of both the Morians/Toss and Umojans so you would type "Protoss Refugees under command of Umojans and Protoss council" or something like that. The same would go for a civilian scientist who may answer to a corporation as well as the military or mercenaries. If you are part of no faction and are a stoaway or undercover agent type either independent or the actual faction. You don't have to do the final step if you wish your identity to remain secret for the story's sake.)

Toggle Rules

1. Do not god mod. This means you cannot make any large decisions for other player controlled characters. Having them talk or walk is usually fine as long as you write them well. Controlling the actions of non-playable characters is completely alright, however.
2. Make sure your character makes sense to be on board this ship. Creativity is encouraged but ignorance is not. For instance, having an Infested Terran who has somehow retained his humanity or some Zerg stowaway is fine, but being Jim Raynor or some random Dominion marine chilling on the ship would just be strange.
3. Do not have a player character be above the rank of Captain or whatever the equivalent is to the Protoss.
4. Have all fights be fair. You can write out a long drawn out fight if you wish, but do not determine the outcome if it's anything other than your defeat or withdraw. A draw is fine if both players agree. I will end long fights that have continued because of ego if necessary. The same thing goes for verbal arguments over the activities of the ship and what-not. You can write a long argument but ultimately have the other player concede that yours is the best.
5. Have all characters start out and have their home base be the ship. They can leave later if they wish, though.
6. You may choose any writing style you wish, first and third person, omnipotent, ext.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Sorry for a LOP (Lack of Posts), iv been busy lately. Il get something up soon....

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

I would like to join. I will have a sheet up in maybe two days?

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Sorry, I'm still interested, I've just been shit busy. Got work all weekend and so will try to get a character sheet up soon.

Thanks for patience.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Yeah, that could work. O was thinking i could join the ship during its first mission in the RP to the Merc planet, and i am working on my intro post now. So that could work.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

charecter. we both have a contact on the ship. is it possible that we are each other's contacts?

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

just wanted to throw out that i have started my own RP and i am looking for players

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Alrighty, im almost done, iv been really busy though, but i got it almost worked out.

Just some things id thought id mention:

In Starcraft 2, which i have done quite a few RPs in, iv tended to create some own stuff, which i may mention possibly, and id thought if i told you all, you might be able to think of something from this that might help you think of whole new adventures/exploits/ect that would be good for the RP, so here are some of them:

Neuronium: A material that has multiple properties, all dorment. By doing the right procedures on it, you can make it a highly flexible armor, or a highly durable platingm and much, much more. Almost all battlecruisers have the technology to modify neuronium to their standards, and scientists who are specialists with Neuronium could create metal that is superior to Battlecruiser Grade Steel....but you would need a lot of equipment and stuff, but still.

C-20 Gauss Rifle: The upgraded version of the C-14, is easiest to make out of Neuronium.

X-1 Commando Rifle: Lately in the Dominion, a group of specialized ghosts (including my Charrie who escaped them) were fitted with this weapon. Longer Range then most Ghosts, fired faster, and did a good deal of damage, especially toward biological enemies, like the Zerg.




Anyways, gunna finish up my charrie now

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

That's fine :). When I said Dominion Marine I just meant like some random Dominion Marine is on board the ship shooting people up at the beginning of the roleplay or something like that.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

What if the Character your working on is a rouge Dominion Ghost who is also seemingly a Psionic mercenary, who is doing this for the money, and to piss the Dominion off when allowed to...? xD

(still working on the sheet, im realy busy atm)

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

I added one last thing into the character sheet I forgot: role.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Zuratul wrote:Hope my character's alright... Tell me if that was what you were looking for and if I missed anything.


Your char's fine though I just added a new thing on factions you should take a look at.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Hi, I appreciate the interest :D. I'll be ready to boot this up once a few chars are ready to go.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Hope my character's alright... Tell me if that was what you were looking for and if I missed anything.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

I also am very interested in this. Will work on a character soon.

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington

Re: [OOC] Starcraft - Battlecruiser UPS Washington
