Teaser (Move your mouse to the spoiler area to reveal the content) Sixty years ago, a distant listening outpost was established on A-133. This system, and the subsequent colony, were later named the Galileo colony. It was quickly discovered that the world was a paradise for humanity, with rolling fields and forests as far as the eye could see, and pleasant, temperate weather across eighty percent of the planet. Immigrants flooded the world and thirty years ago, it had a healthy population of millions. Today, it’s seen as a well populated agrarian world, with small cities scattered across its surface, boasting a highly educated population on the fringes of Terran Confederation territory. Four hours ago, the partially completed FTL satellite web triggered an alarm system mere minutes before a large fleet of war ships arrived in orbit. After an alarmingly short battle in orbit with a mere handful of defensive vessels for the colony, They began an immediate bombardment of the colony, hitting its military installations first. An hour ago, ground forces started landing on the planet, eradicating people but leaving buildings standing where possible. In a few minutes, they’re going to land near the city of Bellfields. Population: Four and a half million people. Including you. Will you survive? Colony Galileo is a role play about a group of colonists and military survivors in the near-future attempting to survive a siege and subsequent invasion by an alien threat, until friendly forces can break the orbital siege. I'm using this interest check to see how many people would like to join it. I'm aiming for somewhere between 10-15 people. It's a highly detailed, sci-fi universe with inspirations from all manner of science fiction. If you're interested, let me know by posting in this thread. If you have any questions, please ask--I have lots of this material already written down and can likely answer any questions y'all might have now! Spots will be given on a first come, first serve basis. I'm aiming to get this RP up by the weekend, maybe a little later.
