The Mechanics of Elysium.

Introduction

2043, March 1'st... An Inter-Dimensional rift opens on the Earth's orbital path around the sun. It spits forth multiple small debris for several hours, until finally, as our Earth moves directly opposite from the rift, a large planet is expelled from it's maw. As the green, blue and white orb finishes it's journey an explosion of colorful gasses erupts from the rift, and it dissipates, leaving the planet on it's own, now circling the Sun directly opposite from our own Earth.

2043, March 4'th... N.A.S.A space probes transmit pictures and data of the new planet back to Command. Scientists are baffled as they receive photos of what seems to be a Black Hole in their system, without a star dying, then vanishing, leaving behind a planet. The photo's reveal a large planet the size of Earth, though it is fairly obscured by gasses left behind by the 'Black Hole', they can discern continents, clouds, and oceans.

2043, March 20th... The F.A.N (Federal.Allied.Nations) convene on the matter of this new planet, named; "Elysium". And thus, the second space-race is born as every note-worthy country races to create an inter-planetary cargo vessel, suitable for human transportation.


2044... After over a year of intense research on every major country's part, three (now minor) nations; Germany, The UK, and Japan, have banded together secretly to gain a head on the F.A.N. Even though this is but a space-race, the widespread United States of America, (Now having occupied and colonized both Canada and Mexico) asserts it's military supremacy by launching a full frontal invasion on the quickly advancing Russia. Russia in desperation holds the U.S troops at bay for as long as it can but is soon over-run. Germany and the UK welcome refugees into their borders and in return Russian scientists are integrated into the Allies Underground (both literally and figuratively) Space program.

2045... In a matter of days the whole of German, United Kingdoms, Japanese, and the remaining Russian people are loaded into five giant colonization ships. On July 17th, 2045, five space-ships are launched consecutively from the inner regions of all three of the Allied nations. The F.A.N, headed by the U.S, launches counter measure missiles and aircraft to destroy the behemoths. Pre-set anti missile and aircraft facilities take most of the brunt but one of the massive ships is lost, sending nearly three million people (Along with most of the higher-ups) into the atlantic ocean. The whirlpool cause by the wreck would run red for weeks, and the sea would be polluted for the next few decades.

That same month the colonization ships land on the surface of Elysium, finding it much like their well-known Earth the colonists begin to set up cities, creating a communist society without name. The F.A.N, relentless, declare war on Elysium and begin developing more Martial space programs, redeveloping weapons systems and Mecha units from the third world war...

And so begins the first inter-planetary war in human history.


(Note: This Rp has a lot of history in it that isn't explained... But, since I had taken a lot of time on it already (mostly procrastinating) I decided to skim. If we want I'll make a follow up RP of the third world war... which will explain A LOT about this one... i guess... I may be over thinking this though so it's up to the other RP'ers)

(Another thing, just to clear something up, this RP takes place on Elysium... not in space. Basically, the People of Elysium are defending against invading F.A.N.)

Re: [OOC] The Mechanics of Elysium.

Of course! Hackers... I should'a thought of that... More to the point, I'm trying to cut away from the old Hack-and-slash thats so common, and go more strategic and in-depth to the milieu... So yah... Since you probably didn't understand that at all, or in the way I meant it... I'm looking for an RP with people who aren't always feeling that they have to be right up in everything to actually have an impact on the story etc... Grrr, I'm still not making sense even to myself. Well anyways... Hacker is great...


Eh? City? Army? what??? Please elaborate, or, just write up the 'character' and I'll see what it is. If you do though, make sure to use a SHIT-TON of detail if your going the way I think your going. XD

Re: [OOC] The Mechanics of Elysium.

Is it possible to play as either a city or an army?
I'm just interested, because else I'll make something else ;D

Re: [OOC] The Mechanics of Elysium.

Okay this is DEFINETLY an RP I will be joining. I will have a character up today and I look forward to the start of this RP IMMENSLY.

Could I play as a bit of a hacker maybe?
