StarCraft® II

Of Ice and Glory Pre-RP

Erebus had began her journey nearly a year ago, and only now had her and her crew made any progress towards their goal. The glorious mission on which they had embarked seemed closer now than ever before. This mission? To explore and claim a world sighted just three years before the exploration set off. The world was shown to be an ice world, and the Dominion decided it was the perfect place for an advance outpost, and so sent Erebus to set up said base.

The expedition's leader, James Falcon, had the honour of commanding the vessel and crew carefully chosen for the mission, to the planet now named Amundsen, in respect to the conqueror of the South Pole long ago. Such a name was deemed appropriate, for the world was expected to be much like the Antarctic. Now, so close, Falcon stared out the window at the bridge towards his goal, which him and his crew had reached in such a glorious fashion. They had, on the way, run into a vessel of the rebels against their homeland. The vessel had quickly been destroyed, with no losses on Erebus. The planning into their conquest was unrivaled, and they had been given much to ensure success of all kinds on the expedition. James knew he would not, no, he could not fail.

Welcome to the RP. This RP will be quite realistic in many ways, including the conditions of the ice planet. OP Characters will not be allowed. Characters may not kill certain characters (You'll know who they are) without permission of some kind. (I.E. Post an attempt to kill them and see if I allow you to succeed or fail.) You may at any time be killed off, due to a mistake on your part or simple bad luck. For this reason I recommend a character that is not extremely well developed or that you want alive. Lore may not be consistent with Starcraft canon. Any persons attempting to find a motive in this RP will be shot. You may not use custom units or races. Good luck, and godspeed to you all.

^Dacder^
Name: James Falcon
Gender: Male
Age: 54
Appearance: An old navy yet, clean cut, still brown hair. Roughly 5'10, 190 pounds. Has a rather muscular build for his age, and a mustache.
Unit: N/A
Backstory: He had a moderately successful career in the Navy, before turning to exploration as a means to earn prestige and honours. He was born into a well-to-do family, who spoiled him with a wonderful Naval education. He is a thick-skulled, dead serious, and very traditional man, who still has kindness enough.
Rank: Captain

^KnarledOne^
Name: Volodymir Aleksander Breven, goes by "Alek."
Gender: Male.
Age: 32.
Appearance: Broad but short, almost to the point of dwarfishness. Raven hair and green eyes.
Unit: Short Ukrainian dude.
Backstory: Alek is a person with multiple personalities. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Not like that. He is no maniac. It is just that he changes his attitude massively depending on who he is around, where he is, and how hungry he happens to be. When he has a full belly (with a decent quantity of either sugar or alcohol in it), he is friendly and jovial. When otherwise, he tends to be sour and antisocial. He also is very friendly towards coworkers while on the job, but infriendly towards others. He enjoys his job greatly. His favorite thing to do is go to the shooting range and fire off some rounds (he is an excellent shot). His second favorite thing to do is to drink. His third favorite thing to do is show off his prowess at turning unpleasant ingredients into completely palatable dishes. A short, sturdy creature fond of drink and industry.
Rank: Head Chef.

^ThaneKrios^
Name: Scott Peters
Gender: Male
Age: 32
Appearance: Scott has a medium athletic build and short(er) reddish brown combed back hair.
Unit: ...Civilian?
Backstory: Scott always had a knack for building things as a kid. When he grew older he always enjoyed working on vehicles with his father. At the age of sixteen he build his first four wheeled vehicle which he drove everywhere every chance he got. Every moment he spent was trying to "fix up" this part of his car or "tweek this" about his car. When he graduated high-school and went off to college, it was a very easy choice as to what he wanted to be. Scott excelled in all his space-engineering classes and emmidiately enlisted as soon as he graduated college.
Rank: Engineer First Class

^LeKroger^
Name: Jennifer Ivanivich
^LeKroger^
Name: Jennifer Ivanivich
Gender: Female
Age: 20
Appearance: 5'11", slim, attractive, neck length brown hair, blue eye color. Wears standard armor with a few adjustments for improved optics and range. Has one mechanical arm (left arm), one cybernetic eye (right eye).
Unit: Ghost
Backstory: Went through the Dominion Ghost Academy and still has all the modifications that she was implanted with. Many of them are not in use as she is loyal to the Dominion regardless of the situation. She is free spirited at times but when it comes down to getting the job done she will do what ever she can to get it done.
She is a Teep with a few other psionic abilities that have yet to be revealed. (Don't worry they won't be anything OP.)
Rank: OT (Officer in Training)


^ShadowFury^
Name: Dale Redson
Gender: Male
Age: 37
Appearance: About 5'8" with short cut brown hair and dark green eyes.
Unit: Ghost or Marine(He's a sharpshooter, but not Psionic, so...)
Backstory: Dale joined the Marine Corps from him not being able to do much else, other than perhaps be an effective manager, but that's terribly droll. Dale was always able to get an effective shot out, eventually being given the placement of a sharpshooter, far at the back like the non-infiltrating Ghosts. He utilized both the effective C-10 Canister rifle, the long range BOSUN FN92, and the penetrating HEV rifle. He preferred the FN92 the best, but was stuck with the HEV rifle. He was sent on the Erebus to be able to take out targets from a range, and here he hopes to finally be given a permanent BOSUN FN92, instead of just grabbing it from the corpse of a Ghost when in desparate need for a weapon.
Rank: Private 1st Class

^smylez^
1st Lt. Mark Stanley
Age 41
6'3''
Mark Stanley has been through it all; from evacuating civilians as a lowly private during the Fall of Tarsonis, to being conscripted to the UED, and fighting across numerous worlds across the sector. It seems that humanity will never catch a break and Stanley yearns for a life of peace and quiet with his family. But he knows that as long as these existential threats are still present, his life will never truly find peace especially when his family is unable to relocate to the core worlds. That is his motivation for fighting and it is all the reason he needs.
Mark Stanley enjoys reading classic works of literature from Earth in his spare time.

Depends. Not all that fast, not too fast.

Um. I'd like to help break you stillborn RP curse, but I really don't want to get involved in too many RPs... I'll probably sleep on it.

Accepted. Rank changed to Engineer First Class. It will be funner and more realistic that way. Also, the Chief Engineer's skills may be instrumental in the success of this expedition. It is not a position to be given away easily.

So does that mean you're going to give it away to someone you like more, or does it mean you're not giving it away?

If anyone's to get it, they'll first have to prove themselves. In the RP, naturally.

Also: LeKroger has been accepted, with a demotion to Officer in Training.
