  1. So after going through Destiny I couldn't help but notice the lack of story in the campaign mode, but the mythology and background is so interesting and amazing for ANY sci-fi that I really felt the need to delve into that universe. The plot would probably expand off of The Traveler and the story of its light protecting the Earth at the wake of a new evil from a distant place in space and time. Of course there would also be subplots and chances for people to create their own destiny (hehe).

    +For anyone not familiar with the game, basically it's an epic sci-fi piece where it's a prosperous period of exploration, peace, and technological advancement known as the Golden Age. In a universe where humans have spread out and colonized planets in the Solar System, an event known as "the Collapse" saw the mysterious dissolution of these colonies, the end of the Golden Age, and mankind teetering on the brink of extinction. The only known survivors of the Collapse are those living on Earth, who were saved by "the Traveler," a white, spherical celestial body whose appearance centuries before had enabled humans to reach the stars. The Traveler now hovers above the last safe city on Earth, and its presence allows the Guardians—the defenders of the City—the ability to wield an unknown power, only referred to as "The Light."

    There are 3 main races: Human, Awoken (humanoid aliens with neon eyes ), and the Exo (robo-organic beings) also if you wish to be a Guardian, then there are 3 classes of Titan, Warlock, and Hunter.

    classes (open)


    Drawing inspiration from Bungie's own Master Chief and the Stormtroopers of Star Wars, the Titan has a bulky, armored appearance. Its two sub-classes, Striker and Defender, offer unique play styles. The Striker can disorient and disrupt the enemy with its electricity-based grenades before barreling into the fray to finish off enemies with its powerful Storm Grip melee or Shoulder Charge. It can also deal tremendous damage with its Super, the Fist of Havoc, a ground slam attack. The Defender is the defensive sub-class, being able to reinforce its over-shield and create an impregnable wall of "Void Light" called the Ward of Dawn to support its teammates with cover and various stat boosts.


    The Warlock class has a focus on powerful grenade abilities which simulate "magic", and a variety of methods to use them more often. The Voidwalker sub-class bombards the enemy with nebulous Vortex Grenades, among others, and the super power Nova Bomb. It can also teleport (called "blinking" in-game) as a replacement for its usual mobility power. The Sunsinger class uses fire-based powers to incinerate enemies; its super, Radiance, decreases incoming damage and allows grenade and melee abilities to be used much more often during its duration. Upgrades vary from allowing Radiance to give even more of an armor bonus to allowing the player to activate it while dead to come back to life.


    The Hunter class is based on the "space cowboy" archetype, in particular Han Solo. The Hunter's two sub-classes are Gunslinger and Bladedancer. The Gunslinger sub-class is designed to reward the player's accuracy. Its unique melee ability is a throwing knife, and various skill tree upgrades will give bonuses to reload speed or stability for scoring precision kills. Its super power is the Golden Gun, a fiery revolver which will slay most enemies with a single shot, but only has a limited time with which to use its three shots. The Bladedancer sub-class has many powers based on stealth and invisibility, and its melee attack can deal more damage from behind. The super Arc Blade will make the Bladedancer draw an electric knife to attack. Like the Voidwalker, the Bladedancer can "blink".

    This is an interest check (and also plot discussion/CS) for anyone that may be interested. If so please respond! This will be a coordinated group rp that will have different sections all placed in a private group rp. So by all means, let's get this started! ^_^
