The year was 3037. Humans had expanded their horizons far into the cosmos in their search for proof that they weren't alone in the universe. So far, they had been majorly unsuccessful- all they'd found were formerly-habitated planets reduced to nothing but ruins. Now desperate in their search for life, and with Earth swiftly descending into oblivion, the governments of the world had, for once, united in their goals. Four ships were sent out in four different directions, each ship carrying a cast of 200 diverse people at the peak of their lives.

Their goal?

Find a habitable planet, settle it, and build a warp gate to open up interstellar trading with Earth and the rest of the settlements.

Unfortunately, it would be even harder than anyone ever expected. And for one ship and its inhabitants, the adventure began rather suddenly.

The Moonbeam, or, professionally, 44588A, was a Nova-Class ship that was considered the best of its kind. Large but quick, strong yet supple, and with great mileage, it was by far the most celebrated of the four. And yet, it was the first to break. The unfortunate settlers' high hopes for a habitable and welcoming planet were dashed, when, on March 5th, 3040, three years into the voyage, the Moonbeam had some crippling malfunctions.

The Captain, a man by the name of Sir Ahab Kythe the Fifth, was woken from his cyro sleep as per company standard- but by then it was far too late. An oceanic planet loomed below, the surface of the dark waters growing closer with every passing second. He tried his best to overcome the mistake, but it was not to be. The gravitational pull was too strong, and, by then, the engine had already stopped. As the sickening blue of the planet below got closer and closer to the Moonbeam's front, Captain Kythe did all he could for the survivors- he directed the ship toward the only island in sight, set rendezvous coordinates, released the settlers from their three-year slumber, and activated the escape pods.

A resourceful man, but not one of the few that were lucky enough to survive.

The island they'd rendezvoused on was a terrifying place- full of creatures out for blood, and with little fresh water and edible plants. Even so, they were grateful for the relative safety offered by it- at least they weren't in the ocean. Radio transmissions from less fortunate escape pods proved the danger of straying into the murky waters, and even the terrors of the island were nothing compared to the reports of what lay beneath.

Now the remaining crew had to survive long enough for a rescue mission to be launched- or, more likely...to build the warp gate. And that would be the most difficult part of their lives to date- because the Moonbeam didn't hit the island, no...

It sunk into the deep.

Hey there, confirming I followed your tag and found this. I like your description of the setting (above) and will lurk around quietly until you’re ready for us to take the next steps.

CHARACTER INDEX - The Deep- Character Index

Alright, everybody! The character index is up, so you can all see the character sheet now and start thinking about your character. However, to make sure that no one has the exact same character (and to be sure of diversity), I have made this a first-come, first-serve claimey thing. So I hope that's gonna work XD

There are, so far, more than twelve people who have shown interest. That means about 6 males, 6 females. We'll see who shows up.

As for occupations, obviously, all of you can't be just be scientists or just be survival experts. I have a few ideas for jobs, and they are the following:

Engineer (X1) One claimed by Dipper Dipper (male character)
Mechanic (x1) Claimed by @Rosé Moon (female character)
Biologist (x1) Claimed by @Smitty (female character)
Marine Biologist (x1) Claimed by Anguissette Anguissette (female character)- COMPLETE
Survival Specialist (x1) Claimed by @Tyche (female character)
Doctor/Medic (x1) Claimed by Starlighter Starlighter (male character)
Farmer (x2) One claimed by @ACasualBrit (female character), One open
Hunter (x2) One claimed by @Maltien (male character), One claimed by @pacdefanq (male character)
Law Enforcement (x2) One claimed by Polaris North Polaris North (male character), One claimed by @Wrath (male character)

Please note that all of the above is subject to change should someone drop out, or if you guys come up with a new occupation idea, or just think everything I'm doing is terrible. Please give me your feedback and any ideas you may all have. I value all of my players' opinions and I want this to be as fair as possible.

What do you think about having a medical oriented role, such as a doctor? I feel like that kind of position would be super useful, considering all the lurking dangers it seems we're going to be up against. But, on the flipside, it amps up the stakes if there's not really a fallback when someone gets hurt.

Also for the record, I think you're doing a fantastic job so far :D

Is there room for one of the biologists to be a marine biologist?

That just sounds like it should be a thing, with scuba training and a bit more useless on land.

Agree with Starlighter Starlighter , you’re doing a great job!

I could definitely write up an engineer for this.

Also, let me know if you need a hand with any... gm-ish stuff.

Anguissette Anguissette That's a great idea ^.^ I'll write that in too. And thanks!

Dipper Dipper Cool, so you want to claim one of the engineers then?

And I definitely will. Thank you! I'll probably need more help later on when the RP has actually started, so I'm happy you have volunteered for this. :D

I will write you in as Law Enforcement. Yes, they would be an officer. Would you prefer male or female?

Sounds good!

I think we may just stick with humans, if that's alright. Any objections?
I always go with male characters, so there's that.
Sounds like a plan!

Spectacular! I know there's a lack of females for now, but I'd like to take a male character please.
