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.

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.

Meanwhile...

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.

She spent the next few years on her own in the fringe worlds, where she learned how to forge weapons, specializing in swords but also capable at gunsmithing. Her greatest achievements are her swords, which she never parts from. She became curious when rumors of an expert sharpshooter for hire who matched her father's description arose. She has been pursuing him ever since in an effort to reconnect.

Defining characteristics: sarcastic humor, expert with her swords, burning desire to meet the father she never knew, capable smith, skilled pilot.

<Morrjo>
Name: Michael Dare
Age: 18
Race: Terran
Class: Drone Specialist
Primary Weapon: Modded C-10 Canister Rifle
Secondary Weapon: Drone Remote
Backstory: Michael was hired to the Mobius foundation for a time, due to his skills in both hacking and just around anything high-tech in general, but held a particular interest for small robots. With a quick mind, he's more suited for tactical overview and analysis of situations than upfront combat, scouting with drones and using them to thin up enemy numbers through harassment. Can pick off larger targets with a customized, high caliber C-10 canister rifle, though he isn't a very good shot.
Defining Characteristics: Approximately six-foot four, very thin. Carries a small handheld with him used for controlling drones, and prefers long-range combat to short range scuffles.


<Morrjo>
Name: "Noctalus" Dare
Age: 17
Classification: Rescue/Lab Rat
Profession: Heavy Ordinance
Backstory:An adopted son of Michael's, Noctalus was an orphan on the run from a special ghost program by the project's codename: 'Nightmare'. Noctalus has been his assistant as well as a prime candidate for research into psionic research, due to unusual readings. Upon hearing the ship his father was told to investigate had crashed into a planet, he quickly ran from the Mobius foundation, determined to find his 'father' and only line of defense against the Dominion and Mobius, before the scientists decide to strap him onto a dissection table, or worse...
Defining Characteristics: Approximately six-foot three, is fairly thin, but ports advanced, prototyped armor with a heavy-duty nanite generator, as well as a plasmite-chaingun, designed to shred through tanks without much difficulty. His suit's energy well allows him to mitigate physical damage at the expense of energy, giving him inhuman endurance, though his mobility suffers significantly.

Maneuvering through the storm clouds wasn't the easiest thing in the world, but it was do able. Soon enough we were through the clouds and I could see the ground. Picking a clearing, I touch down, keeping the ramp up for safety reasons. Meaning not until the ship did an external scan. I stand up and walk back into the back. "We're here."

Garret was looking through the abandoned shop, and saw a box of ammunition.

"Hmph, this will come in handy! Naazarie is coming, yes he is....good thing I'm nice and forted up in my castle! hahahahah"

As he says this, he leaves the shop and heads to his "castle", a small Inn that he has barricaded off.

OOC: He'll use odd terms sometimes, such as "forted", just an fyi.

Sean's escape pod was rumbling with great violence. Soon, a female voice advised him to fasten his seat belt, he did so. The crash sight was getting closer and closer, he could see where the other escape pods had already crashed. Sean just closed his eyes and hoped he would die.

OOC: Sean's Escape pod can be sean by anyone in town.

OOC: Alright.

IC: As he heads into the castle, he notices something....He decides it must be Naazarie and barricades his castle off further, scribbling "Life prevails" into the door with some chalk he picked up from the store.

Mike Richey sat in his office with the vents barred and the door locked at all times. He sat there pondering about all the lives he had ruined just because of greed. His thoughts were interrupted by the sound of someone rapping coming from the door.

Mike stood up and approached the door.
"Who is it?"
"Troy." Said a voice on the other side. Mike unlocked the door with his keycard and it opened.
"What?" He asked

"Radar indicates a personal craft has landed on the outskirts of the valley, just south of town. Everyone from what's left of the security team has a post."
"Even Stefan?" Mike asked. Troy hesitated.
"Well... he..." Mike raised his eyebrow.
"He... is busy investigating the personal craft!" Troy exclaimed cheerfully and walked away.

Mike closed the door and locked it once again. He sat back on his chair and sighed.

Troy speedily walked past bloodied corridors and hallways until he got to the mess hall, where all the survivors treated their wounds since the Medbay had just recently gone dark. There sat Stefan talking with another Survivor, about what, who cares.

"Stefen." Troy interrupted. Stefen only replied by looking into Troy's eyes. So troy continued. "A personal craft has landed on the outskirts of the valley, just south of town. Mike wants you to investigate. There is a vulture bike shop on Brighton street in town, you might have to bust down a few doors but its faster then walking."

OOC: I really like Garret actually XD

Javier suddenly came to the office, and began knocking on the door.

"Open up, Open up! We need to talk about something!"

OOC:Thanks, I'm trying to make his behavior rather funny, and erratic :)
Posts: 8,002
"Who is it?" Mike replied. He was already walking towards the door to open it though.
Posts: 5,878
"Javier, now open the door so we can talk."
Posts: 8,002
Mike began to question Javier's sanity. He has never done this before and there wasn't much to talk about.

"Okay, what are we to discuss, Javier?" Mike asked while inserting the keycard into the keypad and secretly gripping the revolver in the butt of his pants.

OOC: This is my REAL last post for tonight.

"We are to discuss what we have done, and how to fix it." Javier answered, waiting anxiously for him to open the door.

OOC: Goodnight, I may as well sleep as well.

I watched as the scan's progress continues, and sigh. Why'd he take that job? I knew from the start that it was trouble. I told him multiple times that it was trouble. Ah hell, what's it matter now, we were already stranded, so no point in worrying. I checked on Relasta and Linnzie. Both were still asleep. I face Mark, leaning in the doorway between the cockpit and the rear area. "So, what's the plan?"

Mike wants you to investigate. There is a vulture bike shop on Brighton street in town, you might have to bust down a few doors but its faster then walking."


Stefan's only response was to nod. Standing up, he grabbed his helmet off the table and slipped it on. Checking his gear, he headed out, rifle in one hand and blade in the other. Leaving Troy with the cold feel of death in the air.
I know we questioned bringing him along, but now.. I'm sure as hell glad that he's here...
Troy thought.

OOC:
Is this ok? (writing other's thought?)
You also need to get Stefan's char sheet transferred.

OOC: Normally, I dont want you to write other's thoughts. Because if Troy was actually insane or he had a hidden agenda... yeah, you get it.

IC:

The door opened and Mike was ready for anything.

---

Mark just sat in the chair and continued to gaze out the windshield. He didn't answer Torvus for nearly thirty seconds.

"I dont know,,." He finally admitted.

---

Sean awoke from something pounding on the door of the escape pod. His eyes darted open and Sean sat up. Pain rippled throughout his body as he finally was sitting straight. The pounding continued but Sean didn't seem to notice or care until it stopped pounding... and then continued more violently. Thats when he jolted and his heart started pounding. He examined his surroundings, found his pulse rifle and stood up to grab it.

But he couldn't stand up... Something was obscuring him from standing. Sean began to panic looking around, trying everything he could just to stand up. Finally, his eye caught glimpse of a little red button. He pushed it and his seatbelt came off. He was then free to stand.

Sean stood and rolled his eyes in laughter. He thought it was him being stupid, not insanity breaking in. Seeping through the walls of his mind. Me? With all I've been through? No, even I- Wait... the pounding stopped...

*Bam!*

...Nope...

Sean finally reached down for the pulse rifle and gripped its cold steel. He crawled to the door and was about to open the emergency escape hatch when another big thud was heard from the other side. As if someone had been banging on it for a long time now. Sean readied his pulse rifle and twisted the lever for the escape hatch. The escape hatch opened and there was just desert as far as the eye could see. No thumping, no necromorphs, just desert.

Then where did the thumping come from? Sean thought to himself as he stepped out of the pod. He looked around and realized he was completely alone.

He identified some cranes of some sort in the south, so that was his best bet. Maybe the circus is in town! Then I get to watch Gumpy, the upside down elephant necromorph-

Sean stopped and shook his head. He looked around trying to discover the origin of that thought, but found only dessert once again.

Maybe you ARE insane! No, I didn't come this far just to realize I'm insane. I refuse to... His mind just ventured so far in thought he didn't realize there was a strange metallic cylinder in front of him and he was walking really fast. His mind didn't connect the dots of "Stop, or that might hurt." So he didn't stop. He just waltzed right into the metallic cylinder and stammered backward unconscious.
