Alright, so I’m thinking about creating a new roleplay based on the Destroyermen book series by Taylor Anderson. Basically it’s near the beginning of WWII and the Japanese war machine is sweeping through the southwestern Pacific like Patton would do several years later in Europe. The tiny, outdated Asiatic Fleet is stuck right in the path of the oncoming Jap’ fleet and ends up trapped just like the IRL 2nd Battle of the Java Sea. However, not everything is as it was. History has been changed in a very subtle but important way. There are three American ships (two Wilkes Little-class destroyers, USS Walker and USS Mahan, and one submarine-tender-slash-emergency-relief-transport, USS Black Hawk) and one Japanese ship (the battlecruiser HIMS Amagi) present that either were not there in our timeline or, in some cases, didn’t even exist anymore or yet at that point in time. So the Walker, Mahan and Black Hawk join the HMS Exeter, HMS Encounter, and USS Pope, in their desperate but futile attempt to escape the incoming Japanese fleet. The small, tired, and outnumbered Asiatic Fleet ships find themselves cut-off and boxed-in by the Japanese in the Java sea, but there seems to be a light at the end of the tunnel. A rain squall of massive proportions lies just beyond the newest arrivals to the Japanese armada in the region: a brand new Kagero-class destroyer, and the massive battlecruiser HIMS Amagi. If the few surviving allied ships can get past the Jap' juggernaut and her escort and make it into the squall, they might stand a chance of escaping and living to see another day. Little do they know that this is no ordinary rain squall, and that they would soon find themselves on an alternate earth that’s gripped by a massive war just like their own, but not the one they’re familiar to. This war is between a massively powerful race of reptilian-like hunters called the ‘Grik’ and a much more peaceful but hopelessly outmatched race of people called the ‘Mi-Anaaka’ who resemble a wide variety of different animals familiar to us, but with very human-like bodies and personalities. (Some of us might know them as ‘Furries’.) So who would be interested in joining this if I made it? If you are a fan of the actual Destroyermen book series that this RP is based off of, you might notice I’ve replaced the Lemurians with just regular Furries, but this is mainly just to add a bit more flexibility to the story and character possibilities, and to potentially appeal to a wider audience.
