Life On the Last Chance: Part One
« on: July 21, 2010, 02:29:53 PM »
Anybody interested in role-playing?

19 BBY, Outer Rim: the Republic has established a small base on an obscure planet in order to protect nearby supply lines as well as have an emergency back-up force for those sent to the system. Calling it the Last Chance, a battalion made up of survivors from former battalions* guards what may be the gateway to the Republic's victory in the Outer Rim. However, the Separatists have recently found out and are now bombarding them relentlessly...

* = the battalion stationed at the Last Chance was created from men who basically lost their own battalion (ex. 15 survivors out of 900) and couldn't rebuild.

I'll be troopers Vic and Torr. I'll be interested in what you guys think of! :)

Uh, Character Bio's, a plot that tells us who we are playing as...


Drake is flamboyant, and may go over the top, but if he were not that extrovert then who would move things along?

[spoiler][.........][/spoiler]

I'll restate what I've stated in my first post:

1) the characters' bios are basically whatever you want them to be. We need a couple of ARCs, one commander, and a whole bunch of troopers. Maybe the 512th Battalion got wiped out except for one or two; because of their special situation, they go to the Last Chance outpost, where other troopers with similar situations are residing.

2) the plot is that the Separatists are attacking the Last Chance outpost. And the Last Chance outpost guards several supply lines and acts as a back-up force to other Republic forces in the area, so it's vital to the Republic if they are to win any campaigns in the Outer Rim. The year is 19 BBY.

Is that better? Or should I break it down even more? (I just have a hard time explaining stuff, that's all.)

You said that in the first post? Hmm... My eye sight must be getting worse because all I saw were vauge references to an outpost and an enamy. The lack of a character bio for your characters was also rather confusing.

I understand the plot now becuase of direct references. And the BBY/ABY system is arbitrary and really only used in very analitical clasiffications.

Now, do you know what a character Bio is or do I have to throw up an example?

Easy Drake, Easy.

I might be interested. Let me think on it, and for now I'll claim an ARC spot.

If Drake and Nold join too, I'll take another ARC spot. Nold, if you play, maybe we could do like a two man ARC scout team stationed there or something?

Although, we do have numerous RPG's running already....

Easy Drake, Easy.

No, it's OK. I'm used to it. 8)

Drake, I usually make up my characters as I go, but if it puts your mind to rest, I'll give you a charrie bio of Vic and Torr...

VIC
Occupation: clone technician
Rank: trooper
Weapon of choice: vibro-cutter
Personality: mostly easygoing, but snippy and/or sarcastic under pressure

TORR
Occupation: clone trooper/battlefield medic
Rank: trooper
Weapon of choice: DC-15a
Personality: really quiet unless he's around Vic

No one needs to tell me to be "easy". I'm sorry I like knowing what RPG I'm getting into before I join.

Name: CPT-136/66 "Bishop"

Rank: Lieutenant

Description: His armour has the faded colors of his first unit, the blood red of the 66th Airborne. His armor has taken on a gray tone for constant combat and the ashes of his fellow troopers at Brimsant. He has a small comm antennae attached to the back of his helmet He has a face full of many scars, some even over-lapping.

History: He first saw combat at Brimsant, a fire world. His unit was dropped into a battle, out-numbered 3-1 against flamer droids. Regardless, they fought to almost the last man. One-by-one they fell, taking out a handful of droids. Eventually only 136 was left. he took out over twenty droids until reinforcements arrived, to find a land filled with the smoldering corpses of 136's comrades. 136 was covered in the ash of his brothers, burned either by the droids or by the pillars of fire that shot twenty meters into the air.

Other troopers called it Hell, 136 called it the place where he "found his true lord". 136 kept his head down and murmuring on the flight back to the ship. Some troopers swore they heard him praying, others heard him talking to a "lord". Regardless, 136 took on the name Bishop, and began hearing a voice. It is unclear if he is insane, or if he actually hears God, but he has dedicated his life to a holy war, and God doesn't like droids. Bishop took marksman training, and is the best shot in the Paratroopers, and is one of the best in the GAR. He lost four more units until coming to Last Chance

Personality: He is very detached, viewing death as a normal thing. He doesn't seem to feel pain, fear, or happiness. He talks sometimes about his lord, and refers to many as Infidels.

Name: Alpha-27 "Kor"

Rank: Lieutenant

Description: Tall, muscular, like every other Alpha ARC. He has two sets of armor, one of which is the standar ARC Lieutenant's garb. He rarely wears this one, instead choosing to wear his special camo scout armor. His specialty is sniping and CQC, for which he has a 12 inch vibroblade. Kor has several non-regulation tattoos, but when you're a Black Ops ARC on a remote outpost in the outer rim, people tend not to question your tats.

History: Trained by Jango Fett along with 99 other Alpha ARC's, Kor and (insert Nold's charrie name here) were almost instantly chosen to be a two man team. They demonstrated considerably higher skill in Black Ops than the other Alpha's, who were also extremely talented in this area, as all Alpha's are.

Kor and (insert) started their fighting careers during the Battle of Kamino, where they served as a sniper and spotter; a demolitions team; an intelligence gathering team; and an assassin team for taking out the leading Seperatists during the battle. After their great success on Kamino, they were assigned to missions across the galaxy, only working with other ARC's twice.

The first time was while on Kamino, they helped Alpha rig the cloning tanks for destruction and defend this area for a short time. The second event, they worked with Alpha again to train a local gurilla force in black ops tactics.

Now, the two are stationed on Last Chance, where they help defend the station, and use it as a base of operations for work in the region of the outer rim.

OOC: I'm hijacking the RPG to start it. If the creator doesn't like it, he can shove off. Notice to all monotheistic members: Don't worry, I'm not knocking your specific religion. I'm using "God" in a generic term, so no need to go burning me at the cross or anything.

"And may his eternal grace shed light on the unclean, and burn them from the lands of light." Bishop finished praying in the gunship. He was with a few ARC's, the knights of his crusade, whether they knew it or not. They did God's bidding and so did he. He raised his head, which had been resting between his knees on the barrel of his rifle, the stock jammed into the floor. It was a three shot weapon, perfect for a marksman. He surveyed the others. He felt God's presence on each of them. They would serve the True Lord well.

OOC:I'm not used to spouting religious stuff all the time, or at all really, so if any of you religious types can give me a good example of an insane prophet or something, it would be nice to have some source material.

OOC: For a wacko religion-spouter, that was good. I'll look around for an insane prophet or something. Until I can find one, from my life-long experience in churches, they do a lot of vocal proclimation of what they believe and refuse to even listen to anything else. Then they go to everybody and tell them what they're doing wrong in life and how to fix it. Stuff like that.

Alpha-27 Kor sat in the Larty Gunship, wearing his custom Scout Camo armor and sharpening his vibroblade. Bishop sat across from him, praying a mile a minute as always. Kor found his religion strange, but if that's what got you through the horrors of combat, then that's what you used.

Sheathing his vibroblade, Kor picked up his sniper rifle and laid it across his lap. Today's mission was to ambush a Seperatist outpost being used as a base for the attacks on the Last Chance.

Kor and his partner, Jor, Alpha-26, had a side mission as well. Intel reported that there were some troop movement plans inside the outpost, so they had to go and retrieve it. If there really is something there.... It was a standard part of his job to get false reports and go running off on wild goose chases.

Vin
CT 1307
Occupation: Clone Trooper Sniper, Medic
Rank: trooper
Weapon of choice: DC 15, vibro-blade
Personality: Easy going, joker smart mouth, dedicated to his job and those he's tending too.

==============
Vin shook his head slightly listening as Bishop finished his prayer, Vin was checking his kit over and was pleased to find everything like it should be. He thought it was odd for Bishop to be praying but if it made him feel better for getting through each battle and losses so much the better. Vin missed his brothers and had their tallies on his belt. He nodded to Korr and the others. He was ready to go.

"How long to the land we will burn clean?" Bishop called to the pilot. The pilot shook his head.

"What?!" The pilot asked. He didn't understand what Bishop meant.

"The land of sinners we will render judgment upon." Bishop added.

"I still don't understand." The pilot responded.

"The Pit from which the devils come forth, which we will close with the might and power of our lord." Bishop said shaking his head at the pilots idiocy.

"Wh...what?" The pilot asked, now turning to face Bishop, forcing his co-pilot to take the controls.

"We head to a refuge of the clean, the untainted. From there we will go forth and purge all stains of hell. How long until we reach the bastion?" Bishop said slowly.

"We will arrive in twelve minutes." The pilot said, finally grasping Bishops words.

"If it is his will." Bishop said cryptically.
