Setting It had been a reconnaissance mission. Find, assess and report back. The squad was sent in to gather intelligence on a starship manufacturing plant. Someone had to know it wouldn't end with information gathering, that's why the Spartans were there. The squad's leader, a Spartan in jet black armor, had giving new orders: Destroy the manufacturing plant. So they had all obeyed. But that lead to all out war, combat on an unfamiliar world without backup. The plant was blown to a pile of dust and rubble, but they had lost their leader. Now the squad has been caught behind enemy lines. Stranded on an alien planet. And the Covenant are closing in. UNSC marines, orbital drop shock troopers, and Spartans will have to combat an alien threat and find a way off this world. What they don't know is that a group of Elites has been sent out to track them down, hunt them, and exterminate them with extreme prejudice. Characters This is just a interest check. More information on the characters and their requirements will come with the sign up thread. But all you need to know so far is that you can play as an Sangheili (Elite) hunting the main group. Or you can play as a squad member as either a human marine, an ODST or a Spartan. I don't want too any Spartans and if there are lots of marines then taking on a squad of Elite will be difficult. So balance is key. Rules 1) Of course, all Iwaku rule apply. 2) Don't ask about rules 3 through to 7. 8) Don't ask why we could never make it to rule 9. 8) No god modding. Respect other players. No argueing (discussions and friendly debates are fine) in any of the threads. 8) I expect at least one post a week once the roleplay begins. 8) There are limitations on every character. Elites and Spartans are not going to completely annihilate entire armies. Humans are not going to perform impossible feats for mere humans. This even includes ammunition. There is a limit to how much you can carry. Be tactical with your use of supplies, ammunition, grenades, ordinance, armor abilities, shields and life. 8)Have fun.
