So HE, I’m positive I want to write books and become an author. I plan on writing some education, philosophical, social-political books, but first, I want to write Fiction. The first book I plan on writing is Fiction, so Im looking to get a little more experince in character structure, developement, structure, etc.
So in the following post, I’ll be explaining the rules, and then soon after, the set, setting and plot of this hopefully succesful RP. :)
-Stay consistent with the plot!
-Stay consistent with plot development and your character development
-Don’t troll! If you’re going to participate, don’t do anything ridiculous. Be creative, but don’t purposely try to throw the story
– Profanity and relationships between characters are allowed, just try not to be gross or to vulgar
-If at any point you decide to stop with the RP, find a way to kill your character off or pass them on to somebody else!
Once I have enough participants! I will be the one to kick off the RP. DO NOT start Role Playing until all slots are filled!
The year is 3250. Humanity has recently received a message from the center of it’s Galaxy, the Milky Way. The message states “To find the secrets, you must first return 7 of you to sender.” 7 brave humans have been assigned with the task of making this voyage to find what mysteries lie at the center of our Galaxy. They are urged along the way to stop and explore various planets, star systems, and anything that may come of interest. Any of the 7 members may determine a point of interest as long as it does not appear to put the rest of the crew in jeopardy.

@justinc123,Name Paul Quid Goes by Quid Pilot / part time engineer/Inventor
16 yrs. as fighter pilot call sign ” Capt. Quid” Decorated veteran of 3 system conflicts
Designed Precision Plasma for Zero point maneuvering Capabilities On XT 7 class fighters
4 yrs. test pilot and flight instructor trained pilots on XT 7 W/ ZPM system
retired from military age 38 . hired for R&D Sys Corp. Improved on existing Gravity Drive propulsion systems for stability in low altitude environments.
Made an undisclosed amt. of currency as an investor and co inventor of Morph-cap. (added morphing capability to cruiser class ships .
Designed and built The Phoenix ,an Explorer Class Research and Reconnaissance Ship
Has Morph 1 and the experimental Morph 2 capabilities, Quantum Gravity Drive, plasma thrust, and Dual core and ZPM mod. (experimental) not to mention the new toys on board
Altogether The Phoenix is testing 12 different Adv. tech Systems in areas of weapons, maneuvering, and a revolutionary neural net control system. Even though his was a privately owned ship there are 3 exp military L7 (highest secrecy class) systems on board.
In short The Phoenix is designed as a Exp. class long distance Cruiser that could morph into a Battleship with the maneuvering capabilities far surpassing the best fighters. Quid had been preparing for a medium range full bore test run when his sister called and asked him to consider some mystery and no doubt pointless mission Known only as sender 7. Had the request come from anyone but Sarah, who just happened to be one of the best Council Advisors, he would had powered up The Phoenix an just claim he missed the call. But he promised he’d check it out. Maybe advise them on a better ship for the mission. Lie to the Council, better ship, there is no better ship, I could always play drunk, he thought as sleep over took him. 4 hrs later, Quid shot up out of bed like there was a fuckin’ earthquake, but the room was still. Sweat rolled steadily down his face as he tried to remember the dream. It had something to do with Sender 7. He couldn’t remember, but he did know one thing. Something so foreign to him. For the fist time in his life Quid was afraid. Whatever this sender 7 mission is….he needed to warn sarah….
Sorry guys but I gotta postponed this :(. All of your ideas are great, but I just got a job and now don’t have the time to keep up with a story like this, at least not until I finish this year of a College and get out :(. But feel free to run away with this if you’d like :)
