Stories of Rim - Rebirth

Post#1 » 30 Jul 2017 11:35

October 12th, 1483AE
Human beings are some of the most fascinating creatures in the known universe. They are the only species to conquer the land, water, skies and stars. Yet, they are also the most illogical creatures I have met. In the words of Timothy, “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof”. If any other creature had what we have, they would have figured out how to live in harmony by now.
And in conclusion, I am at a crossroads. I may be just another antagonizer to our species, but there might be a chance, a small one, that I could create something to inspire people to be better. Such potential for good though, will unfortunately need to be forged with pain, agony, and risk. No good story ever existed without these elements. No great hero ever rose without experiencing these things for themselves.
Thus my fear, I could break a precious gem, destroy hope, and pervert something that could have been so holy. But I don’t have time to delay. By tomorrow, this file will be backed up and encrypted with a code that only exists in my head. The cipher is of my own design. These will be my final words on this record, I am committed.


Important Junk:
You are a brand new recruit for The United Order of the Neo-Incarnates, a military organization reaching over several countries. The organization started as a joint military trust allowing small nations to bind their military might together, but due to the nature of joint military, the goals of the nations eventually aligned and Neo-Inc essentially became a new nation compiled of its original members.
After being interviewed by a few people, you have been ordered, perhaps at gunpoint, to report to the NIS Transcendence, a Neo-Inc medical frigate. You have been chosen to be part of the newly started ASRP, Advanced Soldiers Research Program. You were chosen because you aren't a soldier, yet. The program was designed to experiment with candidates on new ways to train soldiers and other military personnel for active service.

Rules and Business information:
-I declare myself dictator for life, my word is law
-Though characters might be offensive to each other, players will not
-Only 1 character per person
-I really can only handle like 8 people max, so that’s all that are allowed to join.
-It is probably also important to note that this will be the first roleplay I’ve run. I’m an alright writer and DM, but merging the two will be tricky.
-You are all humans and although biotechnology has started to come around most of the possibilities available to the public are just slightly advanced version of what we have today. Prosthetics, hearing aids, magnets embedded in the skin, etc.
-Technology is not far from we are now, the biggest leaps have been in space travel. Currently everyone still use bullets in their guns. For your convenience imagine that everything considered technologically expensive in our world is now easily affordable, but beside from spaceships there is no supertech.
-You were not picked for this program because you were ready to be a soldier either, physical and psychological disabilities are fair game.

The Worlds:

The Rim is a universe that is populated with many habitable worlds. Life exists on many, though aliens are not as advanced as fiction guessed they would be. Though sentient, these foreign beings haven't needed technological evolution due to their genetic advantage over the species of the respective planets.

In order to protect the cultures of these primitive species and to prevent advanced violence from these creatures, governments across the Rim agreed that humans shouldn’t share their technologies with these new creatures, and instead they leave them relatively alone, watching from the space.

But the Humans are not as nice to each other as they are to the aliens. Conflicts between nationalities and countries erupt spontaneously, sometimes engulfing large sections of universal territory. In order to be prepared, almost every country has a standing military and billions of credits are spent each year advancing these programs. It seems the only individuals of the human race who can live without the threat of violence and war are those living on Sem-planets. Like Mars, these worlds can be habitable, but they were never intended for a human to survive there.

File #: 41863571

Name: Leila Etti

Age: 24

Gender: Female

Physical Description:
Height: 5 ft. 2 in.
Weight: 150 lbs
Body Build: Sturdy and athletic, but a little chubby with wide hips and flat chest.
Hair: Voluminous curly (3B) light blue (#0090CE) hair that falls in a wild cloud down just past her shoulders
Eyes: Her right eye is a dark blue and her left is dark purple. The colors are similar enough that the mismatched-ness isn’t obvious until one gets closer.
Noticeable Features: Her skin is a rich, milk chocolate brown. She has a line of little lights implanted under her skin, going down each arm starting at her shoulder and ending at her wrist. There are 16 in total, 8 on each arm. The lights are somewhat dim and a white-blue (LED) color. They are activated by a pressure sensor in the crook of her elbows; one touch turns the lights on, another makes them blink and flash randomly, and a third turns them off. The lights are charged through a proximity charger. She also has a small tattoo curving below her right eye: 6 little stars, one for each color of the rainbow.

Region of origin: She comes from the small moon Lambda-348 that orbits with five others around a large Sem-planet. The local humans that colonized the moon call it Colorford, and it is a wild, vibrant planet. There are no other advanced aliens species, just lots of colorful and exotic flora and fauna. The alien atmosphere of Colorford can easily support human life, though there is an unknown element permeating everything on the moon that makes the human body produce a third type of melanin allowing for much more exotic – but still naturally growing - hair colors, hence Leila’s blue hair.

Education level:
Skills: Piloting various aircrafts, boxing, great poker face and liar, stealing and sleight of hand tricks
Schooling: Completed basic education with some higher level education. Completed flight school and is a certified pilot.

Psych Profile:
Advantageous Qualities: Optimist, charismatic, good at lying and manipulating others, level-headed in times of stress, likeable
Disadvantageous Qualities: Kleptomaniac, pathological liar, has no clue how to handle any type of gun, can have problems with authority

Other Important information: N/A
Drafted: Yes

File #: (8-digits) 63954001

Name: Flux Atticas

Age: 20

Gender : Male

Physical Description:

Height: 6’0”
Weight: 171 lbs
Body Build: Athletic and well-structured, with strong legs and a longer-than-average neck.
Hair: White blonde, spiked up and to the right side, clean cut on the left side. The very tips of his hair are a mahogany color, remnants of his originally color.
Eyes: Sharp and focused, one of the lightest colors of blue. Icy blue, essentially.
Noticeable Features: He has a scar on his jaw going up his cheek from a childhood injury, and he has tried to make it fade, but it is very prominent, almost a purple-ish color. His skin is incredibly pale from his Sem-planet and the lack of sun there. If one catches him without his shirt on, his back has a large purple tattoo of what looks like a web that a hacker uses, with hexagonal shapes and lines. It is not easy to understand and he barely speaks of it. He has bad eye sight but refuses to use biotechnology.

Region of origin: He was born on Sem-planet Smiea-T56, a dark and none too friendly place. It was mostly desert with few trees and many alien species, and the humans there were barely surviving. Water was scarce, there were not many flora or fauna, and slowly the humans that colonized Smiea-T56 started destroying themselves. Flux, along with six others, fled with help of a kind species, the Ceotis. The Ceotis took the refugees to Lolyn, the moon to Sem-Planet Stone 3X. Lolyn is far colder than most Sem-Planets/colonies. Due to the cold nature, humans there have very pale skin, hair ranging from white to gray, and light eyes. It is also a relatively new colony.

Education level:
Skills: Lockpicking, survival, hand-to-hand combat, theft, operating guns and scientific equipment.
Schooling: Basic education.

Psych Profile:
Advantageous Qualities: Charismatic, down-to-earth, confident, easygoing, seduction, hard to read, tactful.
Disadvantageous Qualities: Prideful, arrogant, little respect, doesn’t trust anybody, closed-off, opinionated, reckless.

Other Important information: Flux does not like the idea of biotechnology because it so easily replaces the value of human life

Drafted: Yes

File #: 91274063
Name: Laros Tehran
Age: 24
Gender: Male

Physical Description
Height: 6 ft
Weight: 150 lbs
Body Build: Relatively toned athletic body, relatively slim.
Hair: Light brown hair shaved at the sides and relatively messy on top.
Eyes: Dark green eyes that slightly glow due to the radiation on his planet.
Noticeable Features: His skin appears quite tanned due to the radiation effecting his skin, however his skin is still light enough for him to be identified as Caucasian. Has a large scar running from his left temple all the way to his right cheek, he also has a scars covering the majority of his torso and arms. He has many tattoos over his arms that signify his place as an assassin on his home planet.

Region of origin: Born on a small non-sem planet called Iv-ahx with a high concentration of radiation in its atmosphere. Most of the towns and villages are made up of the contaminated material that glows with an almost green tint and often grows radioactive plants in the cracks. The capital city called Mor-Ghali is a large glass sphere full of marble skyscrapers, completely cut off from the radiation outside. Most of the plant life on the planet is orange or red, and the sunsets are night are a bright beautiful purple.

Education level:
Skills: Proficient with most blades and guns. Most of his skill is in his quick reflexes, speed and his ability to stay undetected.

Psych Profile:
Advantageous Qualities: Very reliable in situations where you need people stealthily killed. Once he joins a cause he is very unlikely to betray it, he has a high sense of loyalty.
Disadvantageous Qualities: Has a bit of an authority problem. Due to his time as an assassin he can become very aggressive and violent if someone tries to sneak up on him.

Other Important information:The ruling government of his government were corrupt, and ruled with an iron fist, however the resistance was no better, looting and pillaging villages in an effort to gain power against the government, Laros' village was one of them, his parents killed and him kidnapped to become a soldier. It was discovered soon after that due to the high radiation on the planet, and especially the area where he was born, he has enhanced reflexes and speed, which made him a perfect candidate for the resistances so called "Assassins Covenant" and was moulded into a ruthless and unbreakable assassin, committing mass assassinations on government officials, eventually named the "The Black Scourge". However after the resistance took the government, he was lost, at the age of 20, and so decided he would become a freelancer in order to pay for an education so that he could put his murderous past behind him, however, being drafted would change all of those plans.

And Here We Go

Rain. A Thunderous downpour blanketed a group of silhouetted figures. Torrent wind whipped at their clothes. Leading and ending the group were soldiers, their rigid posture easily discernible. Lights flickered on around the launch pad, illuminating a small transport shuttle. As the group neared, a door lifted open on the side of the vessel. Pale Fluorescent light spilt out, turning the rain nearby white and making the puddles more apparent.

The leading soldiers entered the vehicle, marching up the ledge. Behind them were four individuals, who followed suit. Everyone took a seat along the perimeter of the shuttle. Upfront, the two soldiers monitored a screen. Silence descended, the muffled sound of rain could be heard beating on the ship. Then with a boom of thunder, a radio crackled to life.

“Shuttle 12-A, your launch is delayed. There will be a gap in the weather soon, but for now hold tight, complete safety procedures and wait for further orders, over”

“Great,” One soldier said to the other.

The two armed men looked back at the four individuals in the seats behind them. These four were shipped to this moon over two weeks ago. Each arrived separately to the military post, being questioned everyday by a doctor, colonel, or some other official. Spending most of the day in isolation. This is the first time they have ever met.

“Strap in and get comfy, we’re likely to be stuck here for a while,” One of the men said taking off his helmet, “you wouldn’t believe how long a storm can last here.”

Mina ducked her head down in the downpour. All this rain was making her hair frizzy. At least she had a raincoat that prevented her from being soaked. Plus, stuff was finally happening. The past weeks had been such a bore, being so alone, with only stupid military officials as company. And they only wanted to question her. Mina had given them all generic answers, the stuff she imagined they would want to hear. Much easier that way. Eventually, the door opened and she was led into a ship with the other three. The bad weather delayed their flight, so Mina went ahead and plopped herself down on a seat. "My name's Mina Satuso. Pleasure to meet you and all that. And you guys are?" She said, rather loudly over the pouring rain. She stretched out her legs, wiggling her toes in her mag-lev boots, purposely taking up as much of the open space as possible. Let the others walk around her.
