The pilot fired again and again, vaporizing several Zerg. He pulled upwards, seeking to escape the atmosphere... so close...
A swarm of Scourge converged on the ship, and a spray of acid completely removed it from sight. When it cleared, nothing remained.
The Dark Voice laughed as it watched the destruction of the Last of the Firstborn. Below, the Hybrid let loose roars of delight, then released great waves of power. The Zerg Swarm was utterly consumed.
I am alive... How can I be alive?
The pilot of the Void Ray looked back through his memories.
I Blinked? Impossible. Nobody could phase an entire starship through the Void...
Yet there he was. As unlikely as the idea was, it was less likely that he could have survived that many Scourge. That spray of acid would have consumed a Mothership.
If I am alive... then likely I am the last of my kind to be so.
What would he do? Where would he go? Should he turn around and die valiantly in a hopeless battle? Or perhaps... should he do as any Nerazim would? He would find a way to fight on in the shadows. He would avenge his race.
Then suddenly his mind was overthrown.
The Swarm of Zerg down below was obliterated in an instant, and the weight of their groupmind descended on him.
THIS IS A ROLEPLAY.
THIS IS A TEXT ADVENTURE.
What would have happened after the Dark Voice "won?" Fate doesn't like it when the bad guys win. You will create a character and rebel against evil. You will also guide a Dark Templar, the Last of the Firstborn, to find his destiny. Will he die? Or will the goal of the Xel'Naga come to fruition through him?
You will take on two roles: that of a RP character and that of a Cerebrate's ghostmind.
First, create your character.
The Nomads. These Terrans are constantly fleeing their destruction, never looking back for fear of what they might see. They must find some hope to cling to in the hour of destruction.
The Shroud. This dark order may have had its beginnings in the Ghost Program, or perhaps Project Shadowblade. Its members genetically modify themselves, and many possess Protoss psionic abilities or Zerg physical strengths. The Shroud exists only to defy the Dark Voice.
The Shadow Brood. This was an experimental Brood created by a desperate Third Overmind. Its members all have individual intelligence, thought the degree of this intelligence varies greatly. They retain their Hivemind, but can act independently.
Fighter: All factions. Begins as a light infantry, Acolyte, or larva. Work your way up through equipment, training, and mutations to become a powerful Fighter.
Tinker: Nomads and Shroud only. Is an expert at working with machines. Increase your skill and your amount of random gadgets to become a famed Tinker.
Psion: Shroud only. A being that focuses only on the development of their psionic powers. WIth training, can unlock many powerful abilities including temporarily becoming an Archon-like being. Show concentration to become a mighty Psion.
Blood Hunter: Shadow Brood and Shroud only. Is a deadly stealth warrior and cunning assassin. Takes energy and genes from slain enemies to upgrade and mutate themselves. Kill many enemies and show no mercy to become a deadly Blood Hunter.
Infested: Shadow Brood only. Start as a simple Infested Terran, and build up through mutations to eventually become as powerful as the Queen of Blades.
You will both control your character and contribute to controlling the Last Protoss. Let's start out with a name for him...
