Game Masters: [DIANA]Diana[/DIANA] & Ocha Characters: BIOS ARE REQUIRED Genre: Space Saga SciFi Atmosphere/Mood: Dramatic Space Adventure with lots of Action! When: Thursday August 14th @ 12PM NOON Central Time Where: Roleplay City Chat A TITAN'S CHOICE There is a very rare breed of ship, a living ship. A fantastic creature that has such great potential... but, to use this ship you must be "chosen". Chosen by the ship itself or many of the ship's designs might be impossible to control. You could fly it, live in it, travel... but you could never control it. Every ship is different and who they desire as a pilot could be as opposite as night and day. A particularly bossy ship may even want to choose it's crew. After all, if it doesn't want you on board, it won't let you stay. Nicknamed Titan Ships, these wonderful creatures are a great commodity to have despite the difficulties in finding a pilot. Yet, the Terradyne Federation has now outlawed the use of these ships. The choice of pilots and the actions of these ships could not be government controlled. When found, they are confiscated and put away in military stations to await being destroyed. THE TERRADYNE FEDERATION Originally a great organization put together by the Dynithian Race to enforce peace across the Galaxy. For a few hundred years, this system has worked well. Up until recently. There have been some changes of power. In the past 40 years, the Terradyne have slowly turned from peacekeepers to bullies. They have kept their facade, only to do a lot of under-the-table deals and treaties. It's rumored that the Terradyne are now making people "disappear" if they don't uphold the Agenda. THE GENESIS COALITION Where the Terradyne might call them terrorists or pirates, the Genesis Coalition boasts that it is an organization against the military state the Terradyne has started to force on the Galaxy. Questing for the truth and freedom for the constellations, they intend to take down the Terradyne by any means necessary. If not by legal means, by brute force. Their tactics have been everything from peaceful demonstrations, to full out attacks on Terradyne owned properties. THE STORY AND CURRENT MISSION Saniya Karamchand was just a civilian concerned about her mission friends. When she started making inquiries and searching for them, she found a Titan ship - Thea - who then chose her as Navigator. Continuing her search on board Thea, Saniya was stopped by a Terradyne vessel commanded by Jasper Kelran. Once Thea was boarded and Saniya apprehended, Jasper was ordered to out-right kill the woman. He refused. A very bitter coworker accused him of being a traitor to the Terradyne. This might have been cleared up, if Thea hadn't decided right then that this man was her new Pilot. Thea evicted the Terradyne officers on board, kidnapped Commander Kelran and escaped. Now a fugitive along with Saniya, Jasper was determined to return to the Federation, explain what happened and take his life back. He hired a small crew and contacted an old friend to help him. Unfortunately his friend betrayed him. A group of hired thugs ambushed Jasper when he met his contact. Saniya and the crew of Thea tried to intercede - but failed. Jasper was captured and is currently en route to a Terradyne hold. Recently, Saniya found a way to contact the Genesis Coalition was aided by one of it's members, Lenora Star and her crew, to help rescue Jasper Kelran. The rescue was a success, but in the process Lenora was betrayed by a crew member. She, Guy and were captured. Jasper is back in command of Thea and has landed on a obscure trade planet to regroup and plan his next move. With this episode we are now finding out what happened with Lenora, Guy, and the man that betrayed them. ABOUT THIS CHARP This Charp is recurring chat roleplay series. We'll be playing it in stand alone episodes that all intertwine to form the story. If you can't make this one, there will be another, and another, and another. New characters will ALWAYS be welcome, and absent characters will be given explanations on why they're not there. You do NOT need to read the entire roleplay logs to know what's going on and to join in, but if you want to here are the logs! Every new episode, we will be posting up a new Charp event thread and attending players can re-post or link to their bios. Because this roleplay has a lot of plot and character development expected from players, it may not be great for straight up charp newbies, HOWEVER we're happy to answer any questions and help people play and get involved in the Chosen series! <3 CHARACTERS For this roleplay, we require bios! We want to make sure the characters fit the roleplay. Our requirements aren't strict at all and most bios will be fine, so we'll just be telling you if there is a a big problem! Use the BASIC BIO TEMPLATE. You may play a human or any made up alien race. If you were a part of any Chosen episode, you can bring your character back in! And if you can't attend THIS scheduled charp, you can tell us why your character is absent for this mission, and we will hopefully see you in the next one. <3 In THIS episode: - You can be a NEW character that Lenora and Guy run in to during this episode and get caught in their escapade. - You can be a member Genesis, someone that is associated with Lenora Star or you can even by a spy. - You can be a Terradyne officer. (But be prepared to be violenced at!) - You can NOT own or be a pilot of a Titan Ship. (This is very plot important.) UPCOMING CHARP PLOT: AUGUST 14TH, rosybrown Lenora and Guy are on a backwater colony moon, having just narrowly escaped Terradyne Mercenary custody. They will be looking for a way to get off undetected and send word to Thea. Any other questions, just ask!
