    - You are a terraformer from Talamaur, a deep space colony in the year 2034.
    - Talamaur has been abandoned due to a catastrophic solar flare.
    - You are a Priority 4 colonist. This means you have a debilitating illness, injury or terminal disease.
    - You were among the last to be evacuated along with your medical apparatus.
    - The Weyland Corporation did not want to fund a proper medical evacuation for you.
    - It sent the Montero instead, a mining tug with only basic facilities.
    - You were stabilised and put into cryosleep. You thought you were going home.
    - You thought wrong.​

    The 7-strong mining crew of the Montero will be NPCed by me.

  2. Name: Gillian Crowther

    Colony Profession: Bar worker, supplementing her income through prostitution.

    Disability: Gillian's legs were crushed when her father's mining vehicle slid off the road and down an embankment. She had gone outside to meet her father in the motor pool. The colony's medical facility was not advanced enough to repair the damage, nor provide prostethics. They had to amputate. She lost her job and her income and became estranged from her family. They didn't even visit her before setting off on the Priority One evacuation ships.
  3. [size=+2]Name:[/size] [size=+1]Elliot Ford Jr.[/size]
    [size=+2]Appearance:[/size] [size=+1]Tall, unkempt and unnervingly thin, Elliot has a rather unhealthy, disturbed look about him.[/size]
    [size=+2]Colony Profession:[/size] [size=+1]Systems Technician[/size]
    [size=+2]Disability:[/size] [size=+1]Schizophrenia; Elliot suffers from vivid hallucinations he struggles to distinguish from reality. They render him temperamental, unpredictable and often suddenly aggressive, thus his classification as a 'Category Four'. Often these hallucinations manifest themselves as a figure who is capable of communicating with Elliot, who he refers to as 'Frank'.[/size]

    Goddamn you, stop making games I have to join. >:[
  4. Name: Erik Ashton
    Show Spoiler

    Colony Profession: Sanitation/ Hazardous Waste Detail
    Disability: In addition to Severe Anxiety Issues and Panic Attacks, he is also suffering with the early on set of lung cancer from the fumes he's breathed in his job and a bad smoking habit.
  5. It seems you need one more to complete the four. I would like to be the four or even pat of the crew that collects the four.

    Name: Jayelyn Lawkheart

    Colony Profession: She was a student from earth, working with the scientists to develop a mask for the waste workers so they would not breath in the fumes but would not have to carry a heavy tank of oxygen o their backs.
    Disability: She was hit by some sort of object in the back of her head, making her loose her sight slowly. She may not see but she keeps her eyes open and watches people even though she can not see them.
  6. Hmm... just a few more needed, and then we can begin.
  7. Reserving this space
  8. Name: Yuri Makarov
    Appearance: Think Makarov from the Modern Warfare series
    Colony Profession: Terraformer engineer
    disability: Lost his right arm in an explosion due to severe physical damage from a crushing force and third degree burns which also spread along his right flank and chest.
  9. Okay, we're away.

    Your cryotubes are malfunctioning. You can either force your way out on your own, or have the crewman get you out, as he got Crowther out.

    I'll reveal what's happening with the ship in the next few posts.
  10. Think yuri can bust out on his own he still has one good arm
  11. Poor Elliot.

    It's not easy being prematurely woken from stasis when you're fucking crazy.
  12. I probably shouldn't join this in the first place because I'm so busy but I like the plot. As long as your invite is still open Asmo I'll be happy to do my best.

    Colony Profession: Navigator
    Disability:Boone is deaf and dumb. She communicates through sign language and military hand and arm signals.
  13. o_O

    So that's two people with sprained hands.

    Okay, we just need posts from Kala, Lawkheart and Jack, then we can proceed.
  14. Erik Ashton super freak out mode activated, adrenaline and panic fueled frantic pod break out
  15. (Sorry for being gone for so long. I just got a new laptop since mine broke)

    Jayelyn is scrambling within her pod, not being able to see anything. Her hands covered her ears, the beeping hurting her sensative ears. She used her leg to kick the glass until it shattered and she felt her way out, getting a few scratches on her hands and face.

  16. I think you need to move this to the IC. Here's the link to our roleplay.
  17. Right, I'll post tonight.
  18. Name: Keith Soma
    Appearance: janitor-09.jpg
    Colony Profession: Janitor and General Repairs
    Disability: Keith has always been plagued by acute Claustrophobia. Ordinarily he could put it out of his mind, but before he was put into cryosleep, he got it into his head that he was trapped inside the ship, inside metal walls. Afterwards he was diagnosed with dangerous panic attacks that could put both him and anyone else around him at risk.
  19. *prod*

    Everyone okay?
  20. Um, no. It's a ship full of gimps and crazies who are about to have their shit literally handed to them.
