Allen Telescope Array, Hat Creek Radio Observatory, California September 2007 It was the end of the day when the white noise stopped. Tony Markstrom, Intern from UC Berkeley, was ready to leave his post and go home when the signal that changed the world was received. Whatever it was it was big. The monitors emitted a continuous babbling tone of information without preamble, all of the computer monitors started going crazy and Markstrom nearly fell out of his chair. It was with shaking hands that he keyed in the instructions to the computers to begin the standard procedures of what to do if contact was made. He barely noticed the door bursting open behind him, and the senior technicians rushing in. He knew, at that moment, even though he?d done nothing great, he?d entered history. United Nations Building. Security Council Room. November 2007 ?I have news.? Said the delegate from the United States. ?Two months ago, a SETI installation received a Signal from extra-terrestrial intelligences. In the signal were charts and diagrams of technologies and instructions on how to build them. There was also a message. A message from the alien intelligences. ?And the message isn?t good.? ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Welcome to the Posleen War RPG! This RPG is an adaptation of John Ringo?s ?Legacy of the Aldenata?series. This RPG will deviate from the book in some ways, but the basic premise will be the same: Alien Invasion. The RPG will encompass a period of buildup, Invasion, and aftermath. It will be of a military and political bend. Some economics as well will play in. Therefore, players should create characters in the Military or High Political positions. However, since this is a global Invasion, it is recommended that secondary characters be civilians. When we begin, Characters will have to make decisions to prepare earth for the invasion. Tough and difficult decisions will have to be made on technologies developed and strategies adopted. I encourage the players to debate and form strategies. Unlike some of my Other RPG's this will be very player driven, and I intend to adopt a much more hands-off approach. If you wish to join, PM me a Standard Character Sheet. Over the next few days I will post a list of Alien Technologies that are available to the governments of the world, as well as that of the enemy. Rules: 1. Obey the Terms of service 2. The GM?s word is final, but since I am human, I may make mistakes. If you have a problem, please take it up with me in private and I will attempt to address your grievance. 3. Be realistic and descriptive, especially if your character is making decisions regarding tactics or strategy. 4. The weapons and technology are feasible (though distantly). I advise players to do a few minutes research. Characters can develop new technologies, and I encourage this. 5. Original characters only. I will consider crossovers, PM me in private.
