    Dear __________________,
    Masrani Global and InGen would like to offer you an exciting opportunity: an expecition that will hopefully allow you to make full use of your expertise. The expedition will leave in the final quarter of this year. We must necessarily keep details at a minimum at this time. If you are interested, please respond at your earliest possible convenience. I will respond with further details, as well as contract and compensation information.
    Attached below is a non-disclosure agreement. Please enclose the signed NDA with your response.
    Thank you,
    Vic Hoskins
    InGen Security Division

    Dear __________________,
    Thank you so much for expressing your interest in the expedition. Allow me to introduce you to Masrani Global/InGen's latest venture: Jurassic World. Subsequent to the tragic events at InGen's Jurassic Park, and the later San Francisco incident, ownership of InGen and its properties transferred to our CEO Simon Masrani, and his one mandate from the late John Hammond was to bring happiness into the world.
    Jurassic World will be the fulfillment of John Hammond's vision, a high tech theme park utilizing and improving upon Jurassic Park's infrastructure on Isla Nublar. In order to begin development, however, the island must be re-tamed. That's where you come in. Masrani Global seeks to take back Isla Nublar, recapture useful assets, and destroy assets that cannot be used. As you will see in attached materials, you have been chosen due to your expertise and experience as a vital part of this mission. The expedition leaves in two weeks.
    Please find attached the contract and information regarding compensation. We hope the numbers will be to your liking.
    Please contact us with any further questions.
    Thank you,
    Vic Hoskins
    InGen Security Division

    Dear Mr. Masrani,
    The specialists have been contacted. Most seem interested in taking part in the expedition, and so everything should be ready to go.
    This will be a cakewalk.
    And don't worry: leave the raptors to my guys.
    Yours,
    Vic Hoskins
    InGen Security Division

    May I ask for a further explanation of the rules and a rubric for the character sheet? Or is this not open to everyone?

    Rules

    1. Character sheets must be submitted to the GM for approval.
    2. Godmoding is prohibited, as always.
    3. Characters should have a reason for being interested in the mission, and should ideally be specialists in an area you're actually interested in.
    4. Plays may not create dinosaur characters.
    5. Players should aim to kick butt in their posting - we like character, here; no one-line posts.
    6. You might get eaten, but this will never be a surprise for you. If your character is going to die, the player and the GM will work it out so the player goes out with a bang.

    OOC: If your character is a chemist, it helps if you know something about chemistry (or are interested in researching it).

    Requiring players to have a Real Life speciality relevant to re-taking an island from its dinosaur inhabitants is going to limit your player base somewhat.

    OOC: If you want to play a zoologist, you should probably not find doing some research on zoology boring, is all. I'd like to think it's like writing any character.

    IC: Father Emilio Carracosa, SJ - Paleontologist
    On the boat

    The priest reclined against the rattling shelf and tried his best to distract himself from the boat's rolling by humming an old tango tune as it played through his earphones, and drilling down InGen's list once more.​
    Tyrannosaurus.
    Triceratops. (He scribbled a note: Sickness. Berries?)​
    Stegosaurus. (Same.)​
    There was a laugh from outside the galley. It startled him, and he cursed in the odd mix of Italian slang and Spanish that marked him as an Argentine.​
    Dilophosaurus. (Venomous.)​
    Compsagnathus. (Same.)​
    Apatosaurus.
    Brachiosaurus. (How does the island support populations of sauropods?)​
    Maiasaura.
    Parasaurolophus.
    Microceratops.
    Othnielia.
    He always forgot Othnielia every time he tried to memorize the list. Othnielia were small dinosaurs, probably unassuming in life. Carracosa chuckled at the idea of an unassuming dinosaur, like a pigeon or squirrel.​
    Euoplocephalus.
    Styracosaurus.
    Cearadactylus.
    Pteranodon.
    Velociraptor. (Possibly Deinonychus?)
    The list continued to include plants and insects that had been cloned. The Carracosa compared this list with the island map, making note of the huge swaths of the island that documents he'd been provided with hinted contained labs and other...other what? ​
    He sighed, kneading the bridge of his nose. This was the way of things. InGen kept helpful information out of their hands for, seemingly, no reason. The Masrani merger was public, the plans to reopen the park had been announced in interviews, the legal battles had already been fought after San Francisco. Why did it have to be this way?​
    As Carlos Gardel crooned into the priest's ear, he sipped coffee to stave off exhaustion, and his eyes swam as he stared at the files. He shut his eyes against sea sickness. "Why didn't we take the helicopter?" he'd asked. "So no one knows we're coming," was the response. It made a certain amount of sense - they didn't want to agitate the animals. But still, the fact that Hoskins had said "no one"... that was disturbing.​
    Carracosa shook it off. With another sip of coffee, he stood, and left the galley. Some night air would do him some good.​
    And the island loomed.​
