[OOC] Aliens/Colonial Marines [OPEN]

Post by medic guy » Wed May 20, 2020 7:08 pm


This will give us an area to converse freely without cluttering up the application area.

As far as characters, it's our first go here so everyone will start at the rank of private (for the military members) and officer/marshal for our colonial marshall (we may start on your world so that we can tie you in with the squad/platoon). I'm pretty laid back and this won't be a stat driven dice rolling kind of roleplay. I'll probably create an in character area for everyone to chat in so that we can get to know each other and our characters a little more. As far as the xenos and predators are concerned, know one has encountered them as of yet (at least according to official knowledge, but the corporations and government look at their own interests more than they are yours or the populations of the inhabited universe).

There are a few questions that I have for you all so that we can try to have a good mission/campaign depending on what the majority are interested in.

1. Are you all more interested in running a simple one off mission (or series of missions) or more of a campaign style (I know a lot of it depends on how well or terrible things are going and your available time) ?
2. I've been a fan of character development and the combat aspects of the game, is there anything that you as the players would like to see?
3. I'm not great (or overly familiar) with discord but am on it somewhat regularly now if that is more effective means of communication for you all let me know and maybe someone can walk me through how to set up a group for us to use in there if you all would like.
4. How familiar is everyone with the universe lore, not a big deal if you don't much but that way we can kind of give a brief familiarization while we're waiting to get started.

I've got a ton of potential ideas for the campaign or mission to move in if you all want to provide any guidance or requests.
Xenomorphs of some type or another are pretty much a given.
I like the political/corporate intrigue aspects of the universe as well.
I know that we have at least one request to encounter a predator.
Is there anything else in particular that you would like to see?

1 missions or campaign, I'd like to see this go on quite a bit as opposed to just a mission
2 character development, combat, and a plot that goes through missions maybe clashes with corporations what have you all before brutally murdered by monsters lol
3 near your list of servers there should be a plus sign to make your own discord server. From there you'll want to go into options to get a link to share here.
4. Seen all predator and alien movies, read some of the books and comics

As mentioned also fond of the intrigue elements, and as mentioned in the req I'd be down for playing a predator
Think I got it all lol

1) I wouldn't mind seeing this go on for more than one mission.
2) The intrigue side of things definitely interests me!
3) I'll mainly be using the site for messages, my disc is pretty clogged.
4) I've seen the alien movies and the first three predators. I've also played a couple of missions from the 2010 avp game, but that was a while back.

My character sheet is also up! I've tried to go for a character without a combat focus (If that's a problem I also have another idea for the character where they're a dropship pilot). I was also wondering about their rank. I've currently got science officer listed as a role, but the wiki considers it a rank. Should I replace it or keep them as a private?

https://avp.fandom.com/wiki/Lance_Bishop

I also used the Bishop surname because it seems to be shared by more than one android. I haven't really seen anything outside of the films or a quick flick through the wiki, so if I'm being a bit wrong/ cheesy just say.

Other than that I'm looking forward to this!

btw that was a really cool sheet design Azra

Science officer is a good choice for role. As far as rank and I believe you would be outside the usual chain of command @Corporal Hicks might be able to shed more light here. But I think you would be attached to the unit as a bit of a liaison. Also I'll send you a pm as I have some subplots considering synthetics.

The [IC] section has started up. Throw together a character sheet in the CS section and we'll start up on the actual mission soon.

1. I think I will see if I can handle one mission before I worry about more than that. I think I will be a marginal player as I’m already running a US Colonial Marines game and writing a second book. That being said, I am easy to reach and I hope to keep up.
2. I like roleplay and story. Couldn’t care less about stats and dice rolls.
3. Looks like you already did this and it was a good idea.
4. Hmm I’m not sure… Only been playing as a Colonial Marine since 2007! (Sarcasm)
