The Squad, Task Force 417

The Squad, Task Force 417


An elite team, working in secret to protect the citizens of the United States..OPEN, NEED MORE

588 readers have visited The Squad, Task Force 417 since Jimmeh1993 created it.


Your skills are needed by the United States government. Threats all around the world demand action, and you've been called on to join the team that will be taking these actions. The best of the best are being called upon to join a secret task force, a squad of elites to handle problems in secret that could threaten the lives of many. Soldiers, hackers, experts..all are needed to make this work. Will you join Task Force 417?

There are a few different types of people being recruited for this..if you want a spot reserved, say so in the OOC..but post your character bio asap.

The Captain: Played by me. The Captain coordinates ops and leads the team.

Agents: Two max for now. Agents use stealth or deception to enter a target area and gather intelligence, or open a way for the rest of the team. They work in the field to make sure the job gets done.

Snipers: One for now. Snipers have an obvious job, they use long range to kill targets.

Tech: One, probably won't open up for more spots. The Tech (I will allow you to rename this position since it will be only you) works at the headquarters to provide information to the Task Force. He or she uses satellite (or any other sort of) imaging to find entry points, keep an eye on things, and provide direction to the rest of the team. This job is important, but will probably not see much action. PM me if you are interested, and I'll tell you more about what the Tech does.

Infiltrators: Two, possibly three if other positions are filled. Infiltrators bring in the heat. They are the muscle of the group who charge in with firepower when necessary.

Transporter: One, probably no more added later. Transporter brings the team in, and picks them up. An expert driver/pilot who can handle those high-pressure escape situations.

Explosives Expert: One for now. Usually works with the Captain and Infiltrators for that first breach, or to cover a retreat if necessary. Also good for assassinations, or for defusing a bomb if everything is about to go to hell. Also brings in heavy weapons for cover fire and overall wreckage.

Before we begin I'll need at least one of each. Hope you'll sign up, I think this can be really fun ^-^

My character is up, is kept short and simple. Let your character develop more through the roleplay than through the character creation page. Model yours after mine, but feel free to do it a bit differently if you must lol.

By creating Collectibles, you can reward your players with unique items that accentuate their character sheets.

Once an Item has been created, it can be spawned in the IC using /spawn Item Name (case-sensitive, as usual) — this can be followed with /take Item Name to retrieve the item into the current character's inventory.


Give your Universe life by adding a Mob, which are auto-replenishing NPCs your players can interact with. Useful for some quick hack-and-slash fun!

Mobs can be automated spawns, like rats and bats, or full-on NPCs complete with conversation menus. Use them to enhance your player experience!

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

im sorry in my last post i didn't realize i had already asked to be in this role play i was called for emergency duty and hadda leave but now im home so im down for a restart

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

are there any openings still being in the army has made me love these kind of role plays lol

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

Anyone looking to do a restart, PM me. If enough are interested I'll see about making this one again to get new and more attention.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

I'm all for a restart if possible. Is anyone out there? How do you guys feel?

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

If you're thinking of restarting, I'm definitely game, and I don't abandon. This looks like it would be very fun. Please let me know. Perhaps we shrink the team a bit, if we have issues with getting people for certain positions?

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

Sorry to those few of you who stuck around after submitting a character. Everybody else abandoned, and I'm pretty much just scrapping the RP. Thanks to those who were actually going to participate, maybe a RP like this will open up that people actually respect a commitment to.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

Alright, I'm ready whenever. I'll leave it to you to make the first post or establish the location. With so few people in the RP as of yet, maybe we should focus on the logistical aspects of setting up a brand new special forces unit.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

Alright we have one more person finishing up their character, and although there are a few spots that need filled I think we can get this going.

I'll send you all PMs in case you haven't been coming on this, sorry for the slow startup everyone. We had all spots good to go and then some people must've forgotten.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

Alright, only two people who reserved spots actually posted a character. So..I'm reopening all spots. Not gonna let anyone else reserve =P just post a character if you want a role. First come, first serve (unless the first person's character just isn't well done at all).

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

If everyone goes ahead and puts up their character Bios we can actually start right off. All spots are filled if all the reserved spots get filled by the people who reserved them =P (well, all necessary spots. still one or two open).

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

I appreciate the consideration! I'll do my best to round out the team.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

Everyone who asked for a reserve spot, your characters will have first consideration.

I'm about to look at and approve the characters that have been submitted so far

Edit: I had a Tech person, but seeing as Sylent's character is a lot more fleshed out..I'm going to grant the role to him. I had originally put that the role was taken (in case somebody read the first post), but after reading the two bios I have to go with the better fit for the team. So, everyone who reserved a spot on this thread has the spot they requested.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

well being as i was in the army as a infantrymen i think i'll love this roleplay and take my rightful place as a infantry aka infiltrator

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

I would like to go and play as the Transporter... xD

Can I use Jason Statham? Hahahaa!

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

I'd like to reserve the position of Tech expert if you wouldn't mind. That, or the transporter. I'm confident that I can do either role justice.

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

I would like to steal the other agent spot if you don't mind. :)

Re: [OOC] The Squad, Task Force 417

I would like to have one of the agents please.
