The Gate Project PRP

Posts: 8,158
A group of about 200 people are gathered in the main cargo hold of a Hercules class transport. A gruff man stands in front of the group with a middle aged woman and a relatively young Protoss sit to the side away from the main group obviously in charge. "You all, as you should already know, are part of an independent organization, known as the Gate Project, that works outside of and beyond the various Ruling Powers in the sector. You have been recruited from all over Terran and/or Protoss space and all walks of life. You have been selected to be a part of an expedition to new and uncharted territory." The transport is now through the atmosphere and beginning to descend into the hole that is well protected by a large terran and protoss base. "An ancient installation that predates everything previously found in Koprulu has been found deep beneath the ice of a frozen world that had once been lush and green. The installation is mostly intact and inside a moderately sized dome from a long since deactivated shield. The most interesting thing however is the large 30' diameter ring covered in strange symbols."

The wall behind the man giving the briefing comes alive showing sectional pictures of a large ring with strange markings and what looked like constellations on the inner ring. "Upon closer examination the ring, which one of the Scientists nicknamed the 'Stargate' and the has name stuck, had a single set of coordinates locked in, which were in the form of 8 of the symbols on the inner part of the ring. We started up the 'dialing process', as some of the scientists have decided to call it, and discovered there is just enough power, and thus time, to send a moderately sized expedition through. You are that Expedition." The transport lands and the ramp behind the man lowers revealing the actual gate behind him and in the process of dialing. "OK people grab your gear and let's move out!" He yells and everyone grabs their gear heading for the gate. Several small robotic vehicles are loaded with the equipment people couldn't carry and everyone proceeds through the wormhole. It finishes Dialing and establishes a wormhole which resembles the solid blue, rippling surface of a large pond.

You are part of the Expedition specializing in one of various skill sets. Medical personnel, Military, Scientists et cetera. This RP is not going to take place in the Koprulu sector nor even in the Milky Way. You'll begin as you exit the wormhole on the other side, in an alien galaxy and alien installation like the one in Koprulu, carrying your gear. If you have ever watched the TV series Stargate Atlantis yes this is similar. There will be some humans scattered on different worlds but will generally have very little in the way of tech and be entirely native to that galaxy. Also there won't be any contact with the Koprulu sector for a while in the RP as the gate won't have the power for an intergalactic wormhole thus trade with the indigenous populations will be a necessity and the more friends you have the better. Interstellar or planetary wormholes between gates will be the main mode of travel between planets and star system's as the only ship you will have access to is a transport/fighter mix without rapid interstellar capabilities.

There will NOT be any zerg allowed no 'ifs, ands or buts' about it. Please keep the big clunky power armor to a minimum as the expedition would have only been allowed to pack relatively lightly and power armor, for the most part, isn't light. There will be about a dozen, maybe two, generic power armor suits rated for various hostile environments and combat that will be available if needed but I discourage individuals having large power armor suits (Marine size or larger). Also going to limit the number, and possibly the powers, of Psionic individuals. Please try to keep custom races to a minimum and stick to Terran or Protoss but I will except some if you can give me a good explanation as to why.

"That isn't too hard for my phone. As long as your phone is in a good spot that internet is fast. Maybe not fast enough to play MMO's, but fast. I will probably get up a Ral'zar character, but from a lost expedition that landed on the same planet as those that exited that gate. I will work on it later. And I just got the devilish idea to create a Zerg-like race and bring it in... MUHUHAHA!"

War looks good. (accepted)

Dac ... the heal is fine as abilities are a mix of PKA style (custom) and normal unit abilities. some info on normal armor style would be nice and I hope you are fine with possible abuse of your character as he looks like the classic 'small weak and scared with a big gun' otherwise ... accepted

Jester: accepted

Steel gonna hold off till you finalize

    Name: Mareesa
    Race: Ral'zar
    Age: 607
    Skill Set(s) and/or primary field(s) of training: Gladiator(That is, advanced melee combat and proficiency with ranged) and a proficiency with mechanics. She has basic medical training to deal with her injuries.

    Abilities: Short-range warp, active cloaking, Battle Rage, Predator(passive).
    Short-range warp: Having a miniature warp device in her armor, Mareesa is capable of short range warp jumps.
    Active cloaking: From her slight Psionic power and cloaking device fitted into her armor, Mareesa is able to bend the light with the device and prove herself invisible.
    Battle Rage: After she has sustained sufficient damage, Mareesa can tap into her inner blood lust and rage in battle. This greatly improves her strength and speeds, but her energy drains quickly in this state and can be vulnerable after depending on duration.
    Predator: Due to her race have canine relations, she has the senses of a predator. Her vision, hearing, and smell is sharper than a humans.

    Appearance: Her skin is a lighter shade of gray, and her eyes are a maroon colour. Her claws are well kept, being short but sharp. Her canines are brilliantly white from well kept care as well.

    Her is pitch black as a primary colour with maroon trims. The chest piece has a small curved spike coming out of one shoulder, making her body checks devastating to unarmored opponents. At the stomach the armor is overlapping is triangular shapes in order for both aesthetics and movement of the core. It holds a similar appearance to the helmet of the Samurai, except with a different face plate. The face plate is a shear mass, going up a little farther than the samurai face plate, and has an open line going across the eye-level and has a intricate carving of a maw of sharp teeth at the mouth. This face plate goes down and stays tight to the face and converts to a strong fabric at the neck along with the rest of the helmet. The armor on the arms is simply plates with triangular designs mainly. At the elbow there is a spike, to compensate for the fact that the females do not have spike at their elbow. The gauntlets are very well design, metal going down until the claws, being open at that location for them to be used freely. The legs are much the same, except without the spikes, and again no visible fabric like the arms and chest plate.

    Equipment: Lightning Spear (http://peterku.deviantart.com/art/spear-concept-173333263 Black being the colour of the blades however, and the gold turning to a metallic red), Abyss Blade (about the same length and shape as a Katana, and the blade being void black) and a Blood Rifle.

    Backstory: Mareesa had taken on major training from the age of 180, when she had recently finished her academical schooling and chose her path as the warrior. She had engaged in multiple turf wars between the time she start as an Accensus to when she had become a Gladiator at age of 300. She spent the next few decades in peace, and pursued artistry and writings, specifically poems. When the opening up for an expedition to a different galaxy for them to discover new things in the century later, she graciously joined. She eagerly awaiting being one of the first to learn about beings outside of the Milky Way.

    The expedition had been given a powerful ship, and made their way. This ship was equipped with the more powerful, harder to control, and more expensive void slip system instead of a warp drive to reach the destination. They entered the cold void and moved quicker than possible through the void. When they exited they were out of the milky way and a century-and-a-half had passed. They were followed.

    In the battle that ensued void beings attacked the ship, most were held off, but damage came to the void slip system's generator, cutting the expedition off from the rest of the Ral'zar. They soon landed on a planet to live out their days, and work on the void slip's generator, but it would take them a long time, and now five decades have passed, with the generator still in bad shape, and work with indigenous people as well as hunting and foraging were starting to be required for food and water, and slowing their ship's repair time. Their ship's weapon systems prove defense for them when needed, as well as the surviving warriors. Mareesa does not work with the indigenous, but as a hunter/scout/forager. But she still longs for battle.

    PKA style basically means custom ... what you find on people in the RP PKA

    Steel accepted and will be added

    SF accepted and will be added when you are complete

    Galvian ... I'll wait to yay or nay when you are done. please explain the 'universe level cooking' lower master level CQC training to Expert, explain the prototype z rifle, please change the medical training to 'Standard Combat First Aid' as for the augmented anatomy ability you need to give me a really good reason in your backstory and that might not be very effective against the baddies I have planned ...

    Stunners

    I guess I'll allow the universe level cooking ... but everyone is going to be living off of MRE's until some trade for fresh food is established.

    Sure I guess ... after someone posts after you you can post again ...

    ah ... *shrug* and I'm gonna need to ask you to remove the rapid regen from Augmented Anatomy.
