Alright it is time for me to try again to run an RP.
I have made this thread here to start setting the story and the plot. It will also be used for character sheets to keep the main thread from being cluttered.
This RP will take place fifteen years after the events of Techsuit warfare just to give an idea of when the timeline is. All of Koprulu is under one government known as the Collective Triad, which replaced the KSA a few years after the plague had ended. There are two sides that can be joined in this RP and the is the fore mentioned Collective and the Poltergeist Mercenaries.
Now in regards to the character sheets. The format is as follows.
Loyalty:(Collective or Poltergeist)
Abilities: (This is more for unique abilities since your class and subclass will determine your other abilities. You only get three.)
Armament: (Again for more unique weapons. Class and subclass will determine your weapons.Only three additional at most please.)
Classes will be posted shortly.

One side wants to join the Collective and Viola joined them because she believed that they were going to be forced against it anyway so she chose initiative and stayed loyal ever since. Second side wants to join the Poltergeist to help them fight the Collective. The final group wants to stay out of it and they want to stay secluded and to go back to secrecy. So far most of the population sided with the final group and the three sides have been at each others throats constantly.

Not all Terran Protoss and Zerg are under one banner. Many Protoss and Terran have their own governments set up still but the Collective rules over them. Kinda like the Confederacy did over the other terran governments. As for the Zerg they had been pacified years ago and not much is seen of them anymore.
Now for a post regarding the story.....
Location: Poltergeist Base on asteroid KL69.
John Flint Sr. was in his office going over paper work from the previous day, most of it involved troop deployments, requisitions for supplies, ideas for new weapons or technology development, and so on. He took a deep breath and pushed away from his desk to take a short break before continuing.
He stands up and walks around his desk for a short minute to stretch his legs.
Ugh these nights seem to be getting longer and longer ever since the unease that the Collective has started with its increased push in purifying the genetic code of the Terrans and Protoss. At least I am trying to save those that didn't have much a choice in what they gained genetically and helped those that did choose to remain safe. He thought to himself.
He ran his hand over his bald head and walked back to his chair. He heard footsteps outside the hall, it must be one of the Internal Regulators patrolling the halls. He returns to his desk and start to go through the rest of the paperwork.
About an hour later he was about to finish the paper work and turn in for at least a few hours of sleep before he came back to the office. Just as he signed the last paper he heard a rustling behind him. As he turned a cloaked figure leaps at him knocking him out of his chair.
He kicks his attacker off and leaps to his feet. His left arm morphs into a blade and a psi-blade on his right arm activates. The attacker decloaks revealing a Watcher from the Collective Triad holding one of their infamous knifes.
"So I guess the Collective Triad has decide to kill me. If you don't mind granting an old man an answer as to why I am to be killed?" Flint asks looking at the Watcher making sure not to take his eyes off of the person.
"Oh mister Flint you very well know why we want you dead. The Director has decide that you and this out dated group are now longer functional and need to be removed. He knew that the best option to make sure that happened was to eliminate you and Mrs. Joan. Not to mention your children. Have to make sure that no one is to take your place or Mrs. Joan's"
A cold scream is heard down the hall followed by Joan yelling orders to the Regulators to quickly lock down the facility and search for more assassins.
"Well it looks like my partner failed. No matter I can still kill you and maybe one of your children before I die." The Watcher Charges stabbing with precision at Flint chest. Flint managed to dodge the initial blow only to have the knife cut back and the knife land into into his left lung. He quickly stabs the Watcher in the neck with psi-blade killing the assassin. The assassin falls to the ground lifeless and Flint land not far from him. The poison on the blade was unique in the fact it inhibited his rapid regeneration. He lay on the floor gasping for breath unable to draw any air into one of his lungs.
A Regulator entered the room to make sure Flint was unharmed only to find the dead assassin and Flint on the floor slowing bleeding out. The Regulator call into his comm informing the medical staff that he was bringing Flint down for emergency surgery.
End of this story post.
"First person character is The Watcher."
I flick my eyes across the holographic screen. A new image comes up. I watch as the man known as John Flint is taken to a medical bay. I was surprised by this data as he had regeneration as one of his many special qualities. My eyes flick to another screen as I watch Korzis rush to Joan. The young one cared much for his wife. Pathetic. I think to myself.
My eyes flick again as I see a 'new message' icon. I move my finger to it and the message pops up.
Interesting. I think as I watch as Zaros re-entered the Poltergeist base. His new claws very apparent because of his lack of gloves.
Several hours pass as the doctors operated on Flint Sr. The poison had removed his ability to regenerate almost completely and his left lung was filling with blood. They managed to stop the bleeding and seal up the puncture wound, they couldn't remove the poison since it had attached to several crucial cells altering his genetics. His body would process it out but it will take some time before that happens.
John Jr. walks up to the bed where his father lay sleeping.
"What happened Doc?"
"He was attacked and poisoned by a Watcher. It seems the poison is specically targeting his regeneration and that is all we can tell right now. It might also prevent him from using his psionics and his morphing abilities but we won't know until we run tests." The doctor replies.
"How long would it take before we know anything?"
"Maybe a few hours but it could be a day at the most."
"Thanks Doc." John Jr. looks at his father again before heading to the communications area. He had to let his sister and brother know what was going on. He also needed to contact the Lorians since their leader was a personal friend of his dad.
He arrives and sends a message to his siblings Leah and Ivan. Ivan was off on a mission that Joan had assigned him to and Leah was on Chau Sara recruiting.
He pulls up the personal comm number for Cayl Rios and starts a live feed to him.
Location: Tarsonis, Current capital of the Collective Triad.
The Director was sitting at his desk reading the paper when a message came in. It was one of the Watchers that were dispatched to kill off John Flint Sr. and Joan.
He answers the call leaving after making sure that the area was clear.
"Is the job done?" He asks
"No sir Joan still lives as does Flint. Flint is mortally wounded though. He managed to kill Ulrick but not until after he was inflicted with the poison that you had chosen for him. His powers are now almost useless." The Watcher replies.
The Director frowns. Both of them should have been killed and now there was chance for civil war because they lived. Flint and Joan would soon gather theirs forces and retaliate.
"They were both supposed to die why is Joan still alive?"
The Watcher cringes slightly. "She... She overpowered Yuri before she could strike. I couldn't do anything once the base was on full alert. I am sorry Director I have have failed you."
"You have and will never again." The director pushes a button on his display.
"No sir please I can stil....." The Watchers voice cuts off and is followed by screams of agony and pain before silence fill the comm. The Watcher had been killed as such was the price for failure.
The Director sighs and return to the article he was reading before the transmission. As he read he was trying to figure out his next move.

Cayl was sitting in his office, running over the reports. Ever since the system had declared it's support of Flint and the Poltergeist Mercenaries, things had gone down hill in the war department. However, thanks to the ever present threat of Endgame, things were remaining on the borders. As he reads a report on enemy numbers, his vidcom beeps. He answers and looks upon John Flint Jr. "John, how are you? I hadn't expected any word from you yet. What's wrong?"
"Dad and Joan have been attacked. It looks like the Collective Triad had tried to off them in an attempt to bring down Poltergeist. Dad is now in post op after being stabbed in the chest with a poisoned blade. Joan is fine I think, she managed to overpower her attacker before anything could happen."
"I sent messages to Ivan and Leah to check up on them as well as let them know what was going on. I am just hoping that they are ok. Has anything happened over on your end?"
He takes a seat in a chair near the display. Worry and lack of sleep show on John Jr's face.
Edited by LeKroger on 10/3/2012 10:00 PM PDT
"I am even puzzled by that myself." He runs his hands over his face as he thinks if the chances and possibilities.
"Has the Collective already declared war on the Lorians? Dad never told that had happened. He has just talked with the Director about something yesterday. I over heard him yelling at the Director for his blind error in the Genocide that the Collective was preforming."
"He would have to meet up with Leah on Chau Sara. No gets in unless they are a recruit diplomat or one of the inner circle. Really it is up to you whether or not you send him. Anyway I hope the battles go well for you. You know that we here can support you if need be. We have recently started out Shock Trooper program. I can send you the details if you would like. It was dad's idea for demoralizing and uprooting our foes."
"As for dad and his opinions he is probably right on the fact that they are getting out of hand. Heck Me and my siblings are alive because of him and Poltergeist. If it wasn't for either we would probably have been run out of the sector or killed." He sighs looking off to another screen checking all incoming and out going communications.
Cayl nods. "I'll send him to Chau Sara in the morning. Make sure Leah meets him. And I'd appreciate the data on that. Maybe we can get some extra muscle to demoralize them, not that the Spartans don't already do a good job at it." He sighs, remembering the first time Flint and that Director crossed swords. "Need any additional troops? We can spare them."
"No the new recruits will becoming in with Leah. They should prove sufficient for the time being. As for Leah meeting with Kayle she cannot leave her post until I arrive to take her and the new recruits back to base. She is at the bar that my dad owns on the side for when ever he needs a break from this place. It won't be hard to find just look for a sign with his over modified walker drawn on it. The name I think is the Pilots Rest."
I pull up the Shock Trooper data and transfer it over. It covers the new Tesla modifications as well as the other armaments.
"The Tesla modification is more recent. Figured a little electricity wouldn't hurt to add to their weapons. Their suits are massive and cumbersome though so they can wield these weapons with ease. Guess for every good thing there is a down side. " He reviews the files himself to pass some time.
Threats of violence. We take these seriously and will alert the proper authorities.
Harassing or discriminatory language. This will not be tolerated.
