[align=center]The Staff[/align] Ever since the dismantling of nuclear weapons world wide there have been constant struggles to make a new weapon to gain an edge. It was a race to find a weapon that could kill millions without having the traces of radioactivity afterward. This race soon ended when a falling meteor from space revealed a technological breakthrough. The United States had called this meteor Borealis as it came from the north on its descent. Quickly the government locked away the meteor and studied the secret nanites on the object. It produced unexplained powers, some which could even deny the laws of physics. It was not long after the government had hid the meteor that it was stolen. As time went on a new organization popped up. Nobody knew where its head quarters were, what they were called, what they looked like, or even the name of their organization. They were the omnipotent hidden rulers. The story begins inside the walls of such an organization. A man was chained against the wall in a dark room lit only by a dim blue light overhead. The man was wearing a uniform, nearly destroyed from torture. A sliding door opened across the vacant area as the sound of footsteps could be heard. Several people were sitting in the darkness as the chained man opened his eyes. “Come to torture me again? I told you, I am not one of you.” “I could spend my time lashing large, confusing words at you; but I find that you are just a waste of time. My choice is obvious, you will die here and I even honor you with my presence at your execution.” A man said, his voice had a British accent to it. “I hold with me the manuscript of your execution, and you know there is no escaping that power.” He continued, slapping the back of his hand against a large stack of papers. “I swear, some day you will regret this.” “I highly doubt it. Just remember to tell the devil in the afterlife, Asmodeus still lives.” Several gunshots rang out as the blood splattered against the wall. The figure dropped lifeless. The dripping blood resonated through the room. “Take care of him. I need this place vacant for my next victim.” Asmodeus said leaving the room. We continue our story aboard the USS Viking. What troops have been assembled there and for what purpose? What will happen to this organization and what does it scheme? Only you can find out. I hope you all are interested in this one. There is a new technology out the produces amazing effects, something that will be useful when fighting this organization. (*hint hint* *wink wink*) Those who are fighting for the "good team" we are starting on the USS Viking. This way we are all together and can get the story rolling. Now without further delay the Character Sheets. Name: (Preferably your Iwaku name. Only exception is to staff members who want to play good guys.) Age: Gender: Appearance: Goal/Purpose: (Why do you want to fight this organization?) Weapons: Abilities: (What abilities have you gained from this brand new technology? Your powers can be borderline fantasy like manipulation of elements or alchemy. Limit it to three major ones and put them in least powerful to most powerful order.) Personality: History: Now let's get partying.
