The Story So Far
It all began with Umoja's Plains. The place where a battle erupted into a war of the wits. The place where a ship called the Daybreak crashed and caused it all. After the crash Yuun and Diego, aboard the Retribution hired Markus Devroy and "The Dishonored" aboard the Ignominy to hunt down the survivors of the Daybreak and find out what caused this ship to mysteriously crash for no apparent reason. In the end, a battle erupted between the Retribution and the Ignominy leaving the Ignominy in ruin above an outer fringe world.
A frigate named the Apparition goes dark on a outer fringe world. finally, an investigation team is sent with Sean Trope as their leader. After boarding the Apparition, they discover it has been contaminated by a terrible disease that causes people to go insane with dimensia, and causes the dead to rise and attack everything that moves. They bearily escape in the escape pods and are now stranded in a Sinister Outpost on the outer fringe world.
What they dont know...
...is they're on the same fringe world.

Sinister Outpost Backstory
When The Apparition set forth disguised as a frigate. Scheduled to go to Umoja she went to an undiscovered, uncharted world in Protoss space. This world has an estimated 13x more valuable resources then red stone that could be sold for nearly three million credits per ton. It would change the way terrans fought war for ever.
Just before they started making plans, a new law was issued that no person or persons could mine on any worlds in Protoss space. This world was deep in Protoss space. Captain Trevor Balroy and Mike Richey were the only ones that knew where the mining crew was really going. When they reached the planet, the mining crew were only beginning to catch on. But it didn’t matter, after they saw how lucrative this world was, they were just going to play dumb and walk away millionares. They established a mining colony in complete secret. Nobody tried to communicate with the rest of the Korprulu sector until something terrible happened...
They had already hauled one hundred tons before they found a strange artifact. This majestic piece of art was put on a shuttle, and sent to The Apparition for further inspection. People only started to get a clue when strange sightings were seen. Things, not terran, protoss, or zerg were roaming around outside the colony. People within the colony would begin to do things over and over again that just didn’t make sense, like cooking the same thing for an hour and not even caring that is was a burnt rock. Or eating leaves and claiming it was jellyfish. Some would just start going crazy, ripping their teeth out and running into walls. Others would have strange dreams, some couldn’t sleep at all, not even a wink until their body finally collapsed on the floor in one big lump.
These symptoms are nothing compared to the trials they would face next. Pretty soon, their dead would rise, and mutate. Hands would become claws, legs would duplicate, eyes would become orange, or red. Skin would grow dark and hard. These mutations attack everything that moves and the miners were completely defenseless. The only defenses were a few turrets and about 100 security team members. Not much more details are known about the attack of the “Necromorphs,” as they called them.
About the same time The Apparition started to experience the same problems. The ship goes dark and multiple problems arise. Pretty soon, the dominion realized they had been missing for months. They sent out a small ship in search for the apparition, they only found death and destruction. Few survivors escaped on the escape pods. Others, weren’t so lucky.

THIS should be good...
what's even better is reading 'the story so far' while listening to epic music.. :D
I read "What they dont know... ...is they're on the same fringe world." as the music hit the climax.. (hell yes)
This, I gotta join....

Thanks Warhawk! It should be really fun! Hopefully my best RP yet! If you have any idea's I'd love to hear 'em here!
Also, it might be helpful to read the first and last post of Ghost Ship part 2 :)
Yeah, I know. That's why I have to count on people like Warhawk to join. The only people I really require to join for this RP to survive is you and maybe CR. I just wanted to give those people the option to join as their character that is already involved in the story.
I've been thinking about making this a stat RP. What do you think of that? It could take this RP to a whole new level. But it could also nail the last nail in its coffin.

I hate to rain on your parade, but this planet is suppose to be completely undiscovered. So you would have to share a little more for me to approve.
As always, all my RP's are open. But everyone is encouraged to play as a character already on the Sinister Outpost as a survivor of the disease that strikes. If this doesn't make sense, it will after I post the story on the fifth post.
Well, yes. It would only apply to certain situations. But sometimes just your classic, "Kills the monster" is better.

Sorry Mark, but (as much as I dislike arguing with a DM) I feel that this being a complete secret is.. well, unrealistic. word spreads and there's always some shadowy organization pulling strings from the back.... so, yeah.
Also added a few notes to char sheet.
I'm done for the evening.
