    The plague was virulent and efficiently lethal. The planet wept souls as it rotted from within; the purge was too slow, too inefficient to stop the rampant spread. Squad after squad of torchbearers had descended into the city and squad by squad their signals went dark. As Aleph squad watched impotently from the clifftop, the commandant wiped bloody phlegm from his epaulets and turned his back on the city. "Burn it," he gestured,

    "Burn everything."

    The engineer radioed to high orbit and soon twelve million tortured souls were dust and ash on the wind. It was only when the ground transport was three clicks out from spaceport that the commandant's symptoms took hold. The skin began to slough from his hands and face and a bloody slurry leaked from his pristine dress blues. Brother Francesco, maskless, threw himself at the commandant, taking them both out through the vehicles rear hatch. The driver did not slow.

    The spaceport offered no hope for Aleph squad. Rabid, frightened crewmen had mutinied and the ensuing riot had rendered both remaining shuttles inoperable.

    Again, the engineer called to the Dawn Bastion, whose captain held her steady forty thousand miles above the surface. Word had been passed down that the planet would be wiped clean. It appeared that the remaining members of Aleph squad were the last survivors. This handful of frontline combat veterans need to find a way offworld before the surface is reduced to so much twisted radioactive glass.

    How many survivors are there?

    Will this end up dying like the Broken Door RP did?

    I could give this a shot, but I will be very busy for the next little while...

    i was just sort of going to assign people some skills but uh

    lemme think about this :Ia

    if you mean 'let me draw the shit out of some space marines' then the answer is YES

    but maybe i'll work up a basic class/skill structure :Ia
  5. I'd join this but I have no idea how these things work :( I'll be following this thread though cos it sounds cool.

    i don't know how it works yet either!

    i am fully prepared to hold hands all the way through this

    because i'll be holding my own hand too.....

    at it's very core, this'll be a multiperson forum adventure, with each person guiding a character

    most of the other mechanics will take place behind the scenes, i think

    It will only die if the majority lets it die.

    so don't let it die. When you sign up, you are making a promise, and that promise is to not be the first, the second, or the third person to jump off the bandwagon. (after that, it's home free)

    And I didn't mean to let broken door die, I was super stoked on it. I just got busy.
    I might be too busy for this too :(
    But I don't want to be.

    Do we make characters for this?
    If so can you PM me with any restrictions or rules I might have to follow for their creation?

    i actually haven't decided if this is going to be an actual barebones rpg or just a mafia game

    in a perfect world it'll be both but i'm not entirely sure how yet

    after i take a nap and these headaches go away i will consult with my advisers
  18. Triangle Man

    Triangle Man Cautiously Optimistic

    Okay, I'm in and I'll make sure that this one doesn't die too.

    And also that we can get Broken Door started up again, that'd be sweet.

    But for now I'm in this, whether or not it's a good idea. My exams will limit my participation during this period, however...
  19. Monday? Aight. Can do :) I'll have a bit of whiplash from a napakm death gig and a 2x hangover combo from aforementioned gig on sunday and a birthday party on saturday but I will BE here godDammit. Cockface does not shy from a trial!

    Don't any of you dare call me cockface to my (cock)face.
