    "And the lucky numbers are… 14563, 28965, 38513, 90127, 87164, 21947…"
    The elegantly dressed woman continues to drone out the numbers, a pearly white smile plastered on her face, but you don’t listen to her. You hold the silver ticket in your hand, staring numbly at the golden letters flashing across its face.
    “Congratulations, lucky participants.” You slowly return your gaze to the hologram standing before you. The ghost like projection was a little too real, as the woman’s gaze holds such direct eye contact that it’s a struggle not to look away. Her grin broadens as she announces, “You have been deemed worthy to board to U.S. Columbus, on a direct flight to the International Space Station ‘Athena’, located on Planet X.
    She then swept her arm behind her to gesture to the TV from which her image emerged, where pictures and videos of the grand space station and pictures of the Planet X flashed by to gaudy theatrical music. A male announcer swiftly devolved the details of the prize and instructions for time and manner of boarding.
    You, along with a handful of other lucky winners from around the world, will be staying at Athena, a research station dedicated to discovering the wonders of the universe around us. Athena. And now their dreams have come true. Or has it…? Little do the passengers know that it is not their dream that awaits at the space station, but their worst nightmare, the passengers will be landing on a planet called X. Years ago it was discovered, and looked like a sign of life was available upon the the planet, since for some reason the lands were similar to Earth's with a gravitational force and an oxygenated atmosphere, also near the right area to Sun. There a space station that was set up, the astronauts first sent there were have never returned and now the country keeps sending more people hoping of one day having survivors come back to Earth to share the sightings. On this planet, there are these strange creatures many of different species (will have pictures and names, etc. listed below) they are the reason for no returns, for some odd reason the creatures will not go in the space station but only on the outside waiting for more visitors. Now it is up to you for your own survival.. Will you make Planet X a safe place for substantial life, or will you end up like the ones before you..?
    Other: There will be character spots for crew members and passengers, so there’s openings for all ages and professions.
    ((I'm still adding on to this..))

  2. Nooblet here, what do I do next? Make a character, right? Then introduce said character to you the GM, yes? Do I win brownie points :D? Then you decide whether or not it shall fit in permaybe?
  3. Sounds good. I'm in yet I kind do have a few questions.
  4. Would applicants have to role as a human or can a few role hostile creatures? Personally I've been hoping to play a rather familiar space Parisienne for some time but never having a chance.

    How centered off of combat is this?

    And what tech level and resources are available at a any given time?

    And finally what format for the CS will we be using?
