    ----------


    Something strange has been going on in the small mountain town of Meadow Bridge, West Virginia. A large predatory creature has been preying on the local animals, and recently, even killed a member of the town's law enforcement. The strange descriptions of the animal have begun to attract the attention of the local scientific community, resulting in an investigation that produces startling results: the predator striking fear into the people of Meadow Bridge isn't from our era, but from some time far in the past.

After joining the Bureau he made every effort to crack down on "X-file" investigations and refine psychological profiling, also lending his aid to cold-case inquiries.

  9. Perfect, Ryker, I'll add it to the cast list. TK, I'm sending you a quick PM about yours, I think you misunderstood a thing or two, but overall, it looks okay, too~

    EDIT: Everything's been updated~ Thanks everyone!
     
  10. Did I get it right? Huh huh huh?
     
  11. Yes, yes you did~ XD Updated again!
     
  12. Psy has a cold and I for one know how those can affect one's muse.
     
  13. Okay, back now.

    All I'm waiting on is someone who wants to play the... remaining scientist slot that we still need. And maybe one more soldier or two. The second we have that last scientist, though, I'm more than happy to get this thing started, but I refuse to play that role myself, and we kinda need it for the game to work. ^^; Or at least, we need someone who wants to study mysterious and unknown tears in the fabric of time and space.
     
  14. I talked to Asmoman earlier today. He says he'll see what he can do.
     
  15. Thanks, Ryker. ^^;
     
  16. I'm interested... working up making a character... :s

    and seriously I mean working up as in trying to work up the ability to write.
     
  17. RIGHT PEOPLE OKAY HERE'S HOW IT'S WORKING SO FAR.

    Palonis is gonna play a mercenary, I've got Haji interested in taking up a role as another scientist, and Slyen's still trying to choose between a role as a government official or our final mercenary- so aside from that, we just need one more player, who I'm currently trying to recruit at this moment (I hope). So right now we just need those last character sheets to come in ASAP, and then hopefully we'll be able to get this show on the road! 8D

    (And please tell me nobody else forgot about this RP in the past week <.<; Slyen already did *points at Slyen accusingly*)
