[REQ] {CLOSED} (SCI-FI) ALIENS: Revival

Post by Bigfoun » Wed Jan 24, 2018 8:16 am

U.S.S KESSLER
June 23rd, 2183

“Please...if anybody is receiving this message. DO NOT come,” great urgency and fear plagued this mystery woman’s voice. “The colony of LZ-3636 is lost! I rep-” static quickly overshadowed the warning before it snapped back to this chilling message. “There are too many...oh, God…” a monstrous growl unlike anything before it echoed out. “I r-repeat! The colony of LZ-3636 IS LO-AGHH!!!” After a harrowing scream, the message finally came to an end. It left the command staff aboard the proud vessel that is the U.S.S Kessler in deep thought.

“Jesus Christ,” Commander Kreegs shook his head while taking a sip of the black coffee from the USCM mug. “Those folks at Weyland weren't kidding…” he set his mug on the table as he rubbed his chin in thought.

“Could it be the rebels, sir?” executive officer Cassidy Hall quickly replied.

“I've never heard a commie screech like that,” the commander chuckled before taking yet another sip of his coffee. “Well, this certainly changes things. Time to wake everyone from their nap, eh?”

“Yes, sir.” Hall beamed down at the colony blueprints that lay before her before staring down at the operating screen in front of her. The options before were plentiful but only one came to mind. She quickly hit, "eject." It would be one hell of an operation.

The distress signal arrived as the passengers aboard the U.S.S Kessler engaged in their deep cryogenic slumber. These so-called passengers were none other than proud members of the United States Colonial Marines. When the going got tough, the USCM is ready at a moment's notice. Usually, the bunch was used to dealing with space pirates or rebel uprisings on various colonies. This operation would most likely be no different. Well, that's what everyone thought.

Awakening from these cryo-pods is never fun. Intense feelings of dizziness, soreness, and overall sickness plagued the marines for minutes at a time. This no doubt explains the random puddles of vomit in the cryo-room.

“Morning, marines. Hope you had a wonderful ten year nap but, back-to-business! The colony known as Jakk’s Retreat has gone dark. Briefing will be held at 14:20. Do not be late,” Hall’s voice traveled across the ship via that lovely intercom system.

Grumbles of anger and such flooded the ship. Originally, the rowdy bunch were headed to the pleasure planet of Arravia 45-65 so, this sudden change-of-plans caused quite the stir. It seems as if this reward for the crews showings at another distant colony would be put on hold.

Briefing is long and boring as always but, the commander seems quite more serious in tone about this particular operation. There is relatively no information regarding what has even occured. Common belief proved to be thoughts of another rebel uprising. it's impossible to know for sure.

“Echo Squad is to conduct a scouting run of the colony’s main plaza and secure any survivors,” the commander said while staring at the group. You, of course, belong to Echo Squad. Those white pinstripes that gleam across that green helmet and armor are your mark.

“The company is counting on us marines. Only we, can get to the bottom of this. Dismissed.” These final remarks referred to Weyland-Yutani, the company responsible for constructing the colony of LZ-3636 a.k.a Jakk’s Retreat. Whispers and rumors of their doings never seize to be relevant but, they are the ones signing that pay-check of yours.

These events begin to ring through your head as you sit, strapped to the leather seat. You are now aboard the dropship known as the “Okinawa” of course. For some, this is a routine of sorts; a cycle that never ends.

Wake up. Eat. Go to briefing. Drop down. Fight.

Others prove to be more inexperienced. For them, it is time to earn those pinstripes.

“It's about to be a bumpy ride, marines!” the pilot calls out with a wide smile on her face as the Okinawa finally departs the U.S.S Kessler. Into the great abyss, you and Echo Squad will go. Whatever lies down beneath, remains unknown to you and your squad. Only through your wits and training, will you get to the bottom of this great mystery.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Welcome to Aliens: Revival. This RP of course takes place in the Aliens universe but prior knowledge is not needed at all. In fact, going into this rp dark would make for a more mysterious experience. This RP centers around a squadron of Colonial Marines armed with latest of technology and weapons as they investigate what exactly occured to this colony. This RP will take on a action/horror approach with no character being safe.
Rules:

Adhere by any and all RPF rules in place.

My word regarding events in the RP is final.

This RP is grounded in semi-realism so, keep it that way.

No creating any OP characters or godmodding any other characters/enemies. For example, if you fire at an enemy, you should write “The marine aimed his rifle at the creature and finally pulled on the trigger in hopes of hitting it.”

Be respectful to everyone in the RP thread. No drama pls

Romance is allowed but keep it realistic. Your characters are in a very hostile environment. No ERP of course.

Finally, have fun and if you have any suggestions, be sure to tell me.
--------------------------------------------------------
Roles: (All roles are very limited barring PFC so, say in advance if you want a role before posting a CS.

Squad Leader- The one calling the shots. A squad leader must be quick in thought and ready to make difficult decisions at a moment's notice.

x2 Medic- A good medic will keep the squad afloat. Armed with the latest in field medicine, Echo squad’s medic is no doubt ready to be of assistance.

×2 Engineer- From hacking systems, to building a mini F.O.B or planting sentry guns, an engineer is important for the success of any operation.

Smartgunner- Ah, the M56 Smartgun. This baby is capable of locking onto targets and is able to dispose of hostiles in a jiffy with its immense firepower. (Reserved)

ALL SPECIAL ROLES HAVE BEEN TAKEN/RESERVED. WE ARE IN GREAT NEED OF MORE INFANTRYMEN

Name: Alexander Luna

Rank: Private

Age: 27

Sex: Male

Bio: Born on Ares Station orbiting Mars. Alex Luna grew up with a large amount of expectation from his family to succeed and carry on his family name. As a child, he was something of a pyromaniac, and often got in trouble for starting fires when no one was looking. To avoid being taken to the station’s Director, he would hide in the station’s air circulation system. As his fires got more and more out of control, Alex was sent to the detainment centre for counts of Arson. To avoid a real prison sentence, Alex enlisted into the USCM under the Jail or Service act. During boot camp, a sense of discipline was beaten into him, prompting him to volunteer for auxiliary training. Alex specialized in military engineering, more specifically, air circulation and terraforming technologies.

Weapons: Luna is equipped with a M41A Pulse Rifle and matching sidearm. He is also trained in the use of the M240 Incinerator Unit, but it’s been ages since he’s had to use one on a combat drop.

Equipment: Alex wears the standard issue military combat dress, with various graffiti spattered on the chest plate.

Appearance:

Image

Alex stands at 5’11, a good height for navigating the air ducts of industrial complexes and military installations. He has various tattoos on his body, including a bird wreathed in flames below his left pectoral.
