[hr] [blockquote]"...in a single day and night of misfortune, the island of Atlantis disappeared into the depths of the sea." -Plato, 360 B.C.[/blockquote] Beneath the Earth: Mysteries of the Aquatic It is late at night and you are sound asleep in your bedroom. Suddenly, you are awaken by the sound of a door shutting outside of your house and what sounds like a car driving off. You rush to your window and see a limousine driving away in the distance. You go to your front door and open it. On the welcome mat lies an envelope that reads CONFIDENTIAL. Curious, you bring the envelope inside and open it as a videotape falls out with a label that also reads CONFIDENTIAL. You turn on your television and insert the tape into your VCR. After some static, a man appears. He is relatively young and bald with a muscular stature. You notice he is adorned with a gray uniform with a captain?s insignia. You listen as he begins to speak. "Hello," he says in a somewhat deep voice. "Please remain inert while the room is scanned." Puzzled, you stay motionless as a blue grid emits from the television throughout the room, scanning your body and the otherwise empty room you are in. After a few seconds, the grid disappears and the man returns. "Good evening, [insert your name here]. I am sure you are bewildered as to why you have been given this tape. In due time, its purpose shall be revealed. Now, I am a very pithy man, so I?m going to get right to it. Recently, an A-G-A-P, or American Government Aquatic Probe, discovered some type of object beneath the Pacific Ocean that has never been seen before. It shows some signs of being created by living hands, though possibly not human. An expedition is to travel to where this object was found to find any mysteries that the ocean may hold. You have been selected to be a part of this expedition due to your skills and expertise. If you choose to accept this mission, you will be rewarded after its conclusion, if there is one. If you decline, toss away this tape, throw it in the garbage, whatever you please and act as if none of this ever happened. But, if you are willing to ensue upon this assignment, then there will be an informational meeting held tomorrow evening at seven o? clock post meridian at the Department of Public Safety, where refreshments will be served. Any questions that you may have will be asked there. See you there." [hr] Hello, and welcome to Beneath the Earth: Mysteries of the Aquatic. As you may have surmised, your character did go through with the above situation, and will embark on this enigmatic mission. Rules: 1. Obey the ToS. 2. Refrain from controlling other users? character unless granted permission. 3. PM character sheets to me for approval. 4. Any questions you may have, ask in the thread for the benefit of others who may have the same or a similar question. 5. One character per user. 6. Enjoy. ~Character Sheet~ Name: Age: Gender: Area of Expertise: Appearance: Short bio: [hr] Again, any questions you may have, post them in this thread if you wish, for it may benefit other users who have the same question. A usual expedition into the aquatic has somewhere around 200 crew members, so there will be a lot of NPCs in this controlled by myself or others if granted permission. Remember, this is an expedition funded by the national government, so I doubt there would be a world weary bartender with no special skills. Be creative in your character. Now, my PM box is open for all character sheets. Welcome to Beneath the Earth: Mysteries of the Aquatic. LSA Edit: Locked at author's request.
