If you hadn't caught on by the name... THIS IS BASED ON ARPEGGIO OF BLUE STEEL. Now then... Down to buisness. This roleplay will take place in the same world as AoBS. However... 1. Due to AU rules, none of the canon characters exist. [Well, sort of, if you can convince me to let you play one, I might just let you.] 2. Whoever seeks to play the Captain will need to go through some rigorous plotting with me. 3. I just can't WAIT to see how this goes. An explanation for you non-AoBS fans. As time has passed, Earth's ever-declining environmental condition has caused some... problems. Melting polar ice caps have caused the oceans to swell in size, sinking whole cities along previous shores. Even in this rather dire situation, humanity continued on.... That is... until... IT happened. Seemingly out of nowhere, ships, naval ships. With strange markings and insanely powerful weapons began appearing. The human military didn't know how to combat this force, known as The Fleet of Fog. No conventional weapons seemed to work and soon every country was blockaded by sea. Satellites were shot down, waterways blockaded. Soon every country not connected by land was cut off entirely from the others. Now, here we are. Japan, 2054. Still cut off from the rest of the world... Wonderful... That's where YOU come in. There are many options spread before you. But first, we need to fill some roles. The Human CS: Name: Age: Gender: Appearence: Job: [Your Job aboard the ship. Engine Room, Logistics, Weapon Coordination, Sonar, there's no end to the possibilities.] Personality: History: [A little about your character. Were they on a trip to Japan when the Fog attacked? Do they live here? What is their story? The Mental Model CS: [Sorry kids! Not letting anyone play these till we have a decent number of humans!] What we need: Captain: Taken by TK (shlav)! Engine Room Head: [You manage the engines and power output] Sonar Monitor: [You listen for anomalies.] Weapon Coordinator: Taken by Gamer5! Logistics Head: Taken by Insomnant! What I need you to trust me to do: I ALWAYS have a plan for what's going on. Me and whoever plays the Captain will be very close with contact, sharing ideas and generally keeping the rp moving. As such it is my request that you trust me and the plot. What I'm basically saying is, please don't try to go off on a tangent [unless it expands on your character, in which case shoot me a PM and we can discuss it's implementation. I want everyone to enjoy their time here, and getting others to know your character, to FEEL for them, is one of the best feelings as writer. I know.] So, character expansion aside, let's try to keep the roleplay on track. ALL RIGHT! With that aside, I can finally show you my character. I will be playing none other than the mental model who will be with our dear Captain [whoever that ends up being] Meet Sina Sina is a lot of things. Human? Sort of. Ship? Yes. A.I.? Yes. Sina is what's known as a Mental Model. A 'living' representation and autonomous life of a ship in The Fleet of Fog. Our dear Captain shall be...well... her Captain! Sina here is a heavy cruiser you see. Not something to be trifled with, that's for sure. Now as for Sina herself, well. As a mental model she will obey the Captain's orders. Simple and true. Her personality is rather dull... but perhaps we will see some character development, no? So, with all that out of the way... LET'S DO THIS!
