    try to save myself
    but myself keeps slipping away







    As steadily as it began, so too did it fall apart.

    It began with the captain.

    Next were his two officers.

    Third to go was the cook.

    The rest soon followed.

    October 17th, 2053:

    The team had been chosen at the last minute, but that didn't change the fact that they were the best at what they did.

    If that's true, mused Hark, why didn't we send these guys in the first place?

    The dossier they'd all received - top secret, classified, etcetera etcetera - had been delivered this morning. A man in a gray suit had walked brusquely up to each target, had politely spoken a few choice words about the (classified) mission they'd been tagged for.

    And what a mission it was.

    Deimos was scheduled to go offline in less than seventy-two hours. That meant that Hark would have to politely rush briefings and prep.

    And then we send 'em to sleep, and we hear from Deimos in seven months.

    At that point, it was up to Deimos to ensure they were on course. And in another seven months, they could get down to work. A long wait, a very long wait, to be sure. They'd get there, eventually. The Oppenheimer was slow. But it was their only option.

    Like we have many, thought Hark.

    And then they could finally figure out what had happened to the Volkoff.

    CNN Newscast, October 15th, 2053

    "And this just in from the UNASA, the UNA Volkoff has reached it's destination safe and sound - they are currently in a stable orbit around a black hole! We go live to Adam Wade at UNASA, Cape Canaveral, for his report..."

    The Globe and Mail excerpt, May 17th, 2050

    "...the UNA Volkoff is, of course, the experimental spacecraft designed for research on black hole phenomena in our solar system..."

    National Enquirer front page, February 3rd, 2048

    "What Strange and Shocking Creatures Lurk in BLACK HOLES? Is the VOLKOFF Project Destined for a GRIM FUTURE?"

    4 - Obey the Terms of Service.

    Name: Special Agent Jayson "Tech" Bryce (Technical Crimes Division)

    Gender: Male

    Age: 29

    Appearance: Slim and Pale, roughly 6'0" 165 lbs, short brown hair and deep blue eyes, rather baby faced and clean shaved, only distinguishing marking is a Binary tattoo wrapping around his left wrist.

    Personality: Fun loving and easy going, Jayson not only thinks, but knows, that he is the premiere technological expert on earth, and doesn't hesitate to remind people of that. He also knows the darker side of his job, and will protect his own life at all costs.

    Position aboard the Oppenheimer: Technical adviser and Unofficial Paranormal Specialist

    Biography:

    Jayson Bryce, born CLASIFIED CLASIFIED, was raised in the underworld of Los Angeles, California. He had little growing up, his Father non-existent and his mother presumed to be into heavy drugs. He made his own life out on the streets, and more importantly, behind a computer desk. When Jayson was growing up, Techno-Crime was becomming increasingly popular, especially among young adults who seemed to have an affinity with newer systems even the developers couldn't explain.
    By the age of 17, Jayson was a big-time player in Techno-Crime. He was a ranking member of the worlds largest Tech-Gang, a group calling themselves the Skull-and-Keyboards. Self proclaimed E-Pirates, the S-a-K was the leading cause of global E-Terror, theft, and, it was said, that the S-a-K could destroy a person over the web, and Jayson was among their best Hackers. Then using the alias "hax", Jayson was a key player in government security breaches, unauthorized monetary transfers, and was credited with helping to orchestrate drug deals, smuggling, and various other illegal activities around the world from the safety of a computer desk.
    It all came to a crashing end however shortly after Jayson turned 22, when, according to personal accounts, a low ranking member turned on the gang, and lead a fledging United Nations Investigative Agency Technical Crimes Division to Jayson's hide out. This information, of course, is only reliant on personal accounts of officers as no record of this informant can be found in the virtual world, and, with no virtual identity, his existence has come into question.
    Of the course of five years in prison, Jayson was recruited by the TCD for help on various cases where he technical aptitude was prominently displayed. It is said that with out the help of Jayson, many technical advances and arrest would not have been accomplished. After serving five years of his fifty year sentence, Jayson was offered a deal to pledge unending service to the TCD, in exchange for a free life under an assumed identity.
    Jayson Bryce has worked diligently and productively with the TCD since his release. He is known to speak fluent English and Spanish, snippets of other languages, and effortlessly can code and decode Hexidecimal, Binary, Base64, Morris Code, and both AES and DES Encryption. He has also had extensive small arms training and is a self-proclaimed Paranormal Expert. Special Agent Bryce will be an excellent addition to the Oppenheimer team.

    Name: Ian "Mad Dog" Lorn

    Gender: Male

    Age: 31

    Appearance: 5'7, 153 lbs, Garid is somewhat tiny but fairly well muscled as he's never without a heavy satchel full of "tricks". He has very messy auburn hair, green eyes and tons of freckles on an otherwise pale face. Typically dresses in a long leather duster, regardless of weather due to the ability to carry so much useful stuff in the pockets. People seldom see what's beneath it, but typically is a t-shirt with the slogan "I'm a figment of your imagination, you demented psychopath.", blue jeans and basketball style tennis shoes for good traction when running is recquired.

    Personality: Demented doesn't even begin to cover Garid, as he's certifiably crazy. Fire is his main obsession and when he's not building something he's destroying something else with explosives. He's also a certifiable genius of the einstianian level, and can build about anything from extremely basic stuff. Hence his bag of tricks, that he never leaves behind. Anyone touches that bag and they're looking to get bitten more than once (hence the nickname Mad Dog). He's loyal, but only if you don't annoy him too much. Something of a loose-cannon who doesn't always listen to orders, but usuall comes out on top regardless. Machines seem to talk to him, so he tends to talk back while he works.

    Position aboard the Oppenheimer: Demo/Engineering expert

    Biography: Ian grew up in a normal family, with normal parents and normal siblings, in a normal school. No one ever knew quite what went wrong with the youngest child of the Lorn family. He always displayed a propensity for taking things apart, putting them back together (so that they worked no less) then setting them on fire. In the living room, in front of his parents. They sent him to a psychiatrist, and she warned them that he was going to end up either in jail or a psych ward, probably both. But one of the people he did his tricks in front of happened to be with a special division of TCD and realize that his talents could potentially be invaluable, as could his rather unique interest.

    He was a very tough student to teach, as he caught on sometimes before the instructor finished a sentence. As such he quickly outstriped everyone in his "class", and was taken for special tutoring by some of the most briliant theorists in the world. Now he understands exactly why everything works like it does, and how to manipulate it in ways that shock even those who taught him. What kept him from being sent on a mission for a while was his propensity for talking to the machines he worked on, but since they couldn't break him of the habit and they didn't want to waste the money they sent him on a milk run... that didn't end up one, partly due to faulty intelligence and partly due to his headstrong nature. Things ended up a brilliant success due to some last minute wizardry, and thus began a rocky career of bad reports, but brilliant successes. After some of his commanders learned the quirks that he had, they started requesting him and covering for his indescretions.

    Having worked with Hark in the past, the commanding officer knows what he's capible of, and despite his instability requested him specifically for this mission due to his adaptability.

    Hey Evil_X_13, welcome to the boards! :) Generally in a game like this one, your character sheet will need a little more details, and our Game Master has asked that all sheets be PMed to him for approval first.

    You might wanna check out the Role Playing Resource. You could also read a few of the more popular threads to see how things work here. In Non-Star Wars I would recommend The Lords of the Rings RP or Dungeons and Dragons. Also, check out the other character sheets posted in this thread for an idea of what an apporved one looks like. ;)

    Name: Jaden Kellen

    Gender: Male

    Age: 27

    Appearance: 5'8" and 145 lbs. Short and wirey. Short red hair, clean shaven face. Bright green eyes. Pale skin. Looks much younger than he really is.

    Personality: easy going and naive, Jaden tends to not know when to stop talking. The only time he shuts up is when he is trying to save a life.

    Position aboard the Oppenheimer: Medic

    Biography: His profession was chosen for him from birth. His father was a doctor as was his mother. He began medical training at the age of ten, to supplament his schooling. After hight school he went straight into medical school. He worked nights at a hospital ER until he was recruted for the mission. He dropped everything he had to go. Jaden knew that he needed to do something to make a name for himself, not just use his fathers name, and the mission seemed to be the perfect way to do that.

    To answer your question, Yuul, the Captain is going to be an NPC. :)

    And thank you, everyone, for your interest in the game! I really hope you'll enjoy playing it as much as I'll enjoy running it! Expect an opening post on Thursday afternoon (Pacific Time).

    People looking to play the game have until Thursday to get their character sheets in. After that, I won't be accepting any more.

    Child Proof Lidded, Lab Mice Tested, GM Approved!

    Name: Ryan B. Adams

    Gender: Male

    Age: 41

    Appearance: A man well past his physical prime, Ryan has more fat than he does actual muscle. He has developed what some call a ?beer gut? and has a bit of a turkey-neck. He actually doesn?t eat any more than his shipmates, but due to his tendency to eat fatty foods, and his unusually slow metabolism, he has become a little bit overweight. Despite, he does have a good deal of stamina and can stay awake longer than most of the younger crewmembers onboard the Oppenheimer, if only because of his clinical sleep deprivation.

    Personality: Ryan, at first glance, looks like the typical ?lives to eat recluse,? but the truth is quite the opposite. He doesn?t eat much and is very outgoing and lively, even around those he dislikes. He is serious about his job, and thinks of the Oppenheimer as his baby; if anything mechanically goes wrong, he tends to get very emotional.

    Position aboard the Oppenheimer: Chief Engineering Officer

    Biography: Ryan was born in his family?s personal vehicle whilst his mother was on the way to the Hospital. His father, nervous about what could happen to the child, had continued to drive on to the hospital, bawling child in the mother?s arms.

    The next many years of Ryan?s life consisted of fond, happy memories, until Ryan?s last year of pre-Academy. During a weekly Engineering Enthusiasts meeting, Ryan received an urgent call; his mother was in the hospital. She had been shot.

    After two days in ICU, she died from heart failure. Filled with sadness, Ryan?s grades began to slump. Luckily, the year was nearing its end at the time, and he still managed to graduate with exceptional honors.

    His academy life passed with any real incident, and from there he also graduated with honors, though not as many as he knew he should have been able to get.

    He has since served on many Space Exploration projects; to him, his new assignment onboard the Oppenheimer is just one more way to make new friends? and forget old tragedies.

    Name: Mitsuko Akamura

    Gender: female

    Age: 27

    Appearance: Short dark hair in a bob, tallish, regular build, butterfly tattoo on arm, scar on neck.

    Personality: At first slightly rude and sarcastic, but very sweet once you know her.

    Position aboard the Oppenheimer: Medic

    Biography: Mitsuko was born to a single mother, Yuri Akamura, in Kyoto. Yuri wanted her daughter to have the best possible life and so Mitsuko was pushed to excel academically. Mitsuko wanted to travel the world, but also wanted to make her mother happy and so went to medical school, coming top of her class. She was then chosen for the Oppenheimer Project and Mitsuko, although apprehensive, was pleased to have been offered the job.

    Name: Clark Donovan

    Gender: Male

    Age: 23

    Appearance: Lean build. Dark skin, hair, and eyes. Four nipples. In case you had to know.

    Personality: Smart but reserved; observant but sometimes aloof.

    Position aboard the Oppenheimer: Technician.

    Biography: Born and raised in the Chicago suburbs, Clark was an intelligent - if sometimes lazy - student. He never really applied himself to anything, but he never really had to; for most of his life, it's been easy enough to get by. Fresh out of college, his brains landed him a spot on the crew of the Oppenheimer - albeit an entry-level tech job, but Clark's just glad to get off the planet. At this stage, Clark still doesn't know what he'd like to do with his life, but he's ready to give spacefaring a shot. Worse comes to worse, he figures he'll just come home with enough money to help pay for grad school.

    OOC: Why would there be any fighting personel? There are no instances within Penguinator's starting post to indicate the human race is aware of any exraterrestial, sentient lifeforms. So such personel would be illogical, especially on an exploratory vessel that the Oppenheimer obviously is.

    Just saying. :p

    OOC: true, but it would make sense for there to be at least one military expert or some such, as a safety measure against either other humans being evil, or there actually being something out there that wants to bite our collective heads off.:p

    just an amused observation really, as that's normally what a lot of people jump for.

    So I have a response to this and an announcement.

    NO FURTHER CHARACTER SHEETS WILL BE ACCEPTED.

    I apologize to those who wish to play, but we have a full crew now. The opening post can be expected tomorrow, and I apologize for the delay.

    Trimaj, most space programs take in pilots from the military. Military pilots still have some basic combat training, therefore, it would stand to reason that the current crew, while rusty and not Space Marines, know how to fire a weapon. :)
