    StarCraft: The Legion Project

    Many years have passed since the destruction of the first overmind. Many years have passed since the Ghost operative, Kerrigan fell to the Zerg and dubbed herself the Queen of Blades. Now, twelve years after Kerrigans inevitable defeat at the hands of Rayner's Radiers, a new enemy has arisen...

    THE LEGION PROJECT
    The Legion was formed about a year after the destruction of the second overmind. Jim Raynor and his raiders were conducting raids on the Terran Dominion for weapons and supplies. On one of their raids they found a group of 100 children in a sublevel of a Dominion installation. These children were candidates for the Ghost program. The raiders took the children and fled the station.

    Upon returning to their own base, they conducted physicals on the children and found that while they had not undergone full ghost training, some of their latent psionic abilities had been awakened. If they did not recieve proper training, their powers would continue to grow and they would not have the discipline to control them.

    Raynor took this problem to the Protoss. The Protoss agreed to train the children on the condition that they would not be solely a human force and would assist with the defense of Shakuras. Raynor agreed. The children began their tutelage under the Protoss.

    The Protoss and Terrans were both impressed by the psionic abilities of the Legionnaires. Without the inhibitors that Ghosts normally possessed, their powers rose to match the abilities of some Protoss warriors, and in a much shorter time. Their training completed in about 8 years, and were split into ten 10-man teams, each with it's own specialty. To enhance the capabilities of the whole, the members of each team are rotated periodically.

    Callsign: Twilight
    Real Name: Nikita Ardelline
    Gender: Female

    Age: 21
    Height: 6'2''
    Weight: 160 lbs
    Eyes: Green
    Hair: Brown, Long, reaching a little longer than shoulder length

    Nationality: Caucasian

    Off Duty - Black Dress like this

    Personality: Nikita is a professional young woman, especially trained and interested in the Protoss and Terran Naval Fleet. Quiet and calculating to those she doesn't know, she has been known to warm up to people after some time with them. She tends to take a very pragmatic view of things, always focused on the mission and problem solving. When free-time does come around, she spends it with other Protoss, feeling more at home among them then fellow humans. She is a strict adherent of Protoss culture and religion and fosters nothing but a strong hatred towards anything Zerg.

    Weapons:

    History/Background: Trained like all the other legionaires, the womans early strengths in strategic thinking and space technologies made her a strong candidate for Classica. She is called Twilight because of her famous early morning strikes against Zerg spacefleets due to her oftentimes quiet nature. She dissapates the enemy like the first beams of sunlight cutting through the night, or so some of her templar friends say.

    Hello and welcome all. I will be providing here a list of Legion exclusive weapons for your perusal. All of the weapons developed for the Legion through a collaborative effort between the Protoss and terrans. As such, they have a human look with some Protoss stylings.

    Pistol: Plasma pistol with semi-auto fire mode, 50 round energy cell

    Auto-Rifle: Plasma rifle with semi-auto and full-auto fire modes, 100 round energy cell, 2x scope included

    Sniper Rifle: Plasma rifle with semi-auto fire mode, has longer range than the plasma rifle, 50 round energy cell, 2x-10x telescopic scope included

    Rocket launcher: Single shot rocket launcher with high yield anti-matter warhead.

    Grenade: Standard thrown explosive device, press the stud and in 5 seconds it goes boom.

    Also, there is a standard armor.

    Tactical Powered Armor: This matte black suit of armor was inspired by the Protoss armor typically worn by Zealots. It doubles the speed and triples the strength of a normal human user. Also, it contains a khaydarin crystal circuitry in the underlay of the suit, amplifying the psionic powers of the user. (about 1.5x effectiveness.)

    Any other canon equipment can be requisitioned, eg. Ghost Hostile environment suit, Marine Gauss canon, Firebat armor w/perdition flamethrowers etc... Just be polite and ask for it in-game through one of your superiors. Keep in mind this is a military game and you will have a chain of command.

    Part of the introduction will include running you through an armory, so you don't need to pick right now.

    List of Legion exclusive vehicals to follow...

    Character Sheet:

    Callsign: Blood Bath
    Real Name: Nobu Khan
    Gender: Male

    Age: 22 years old
    Height: 5'11"
    Weight: 175lb
    Eyes: Grey
    Hair: Black Raven hair, semi-long and spikey with bangs that sometimes cover his wolfish eyes.

    Nationality: Hispano-Asian
    Legion: Team Fortis

    Base of Operations:

    Abilities: BloodBath combines his abilities to become living weapon. He is a speeding, virtually unseen vorpal blade of war. In the field of battle, he can tactically change the playing field if ever his team was to become outnumbered.

    Major: Superspeed
    Minor: Mind Blade, Invisibility

    Appearance: Blood Bath always wears his black armormesh combat gear, both on and off duty. When not in the mission field, he is busy training and honing all the skills he would need to become a superlative soldier. ( I'll provide a pic soon enough )

    Other Special Features: Nobu has a tatoo of a legendary feudal massacre over the entirety of his back. A sword weilding warrior in draconic armor stands in the middle of a pile of corpses and is thought to have supernatural abilities. In the background, many bodies and heads are displayed upon spikes.

    Personality: Bloodbath is a focused and silent individual who hardly speaks. Just as he hardly responds to his real name, Nobu. His mind is always on training and the next mission. He strives only to become the strongest warrior in the battlefield, so much so that he almost seems single minded, though in reality that is not the case, as he is savvy and cunning of mind. He is evidently well studied in the Art of War. Bloodbath is an unflinching warrior and equally fearless. He is also fiercely loyal to the team and the mission. His ambition to become the strongest warrior may be a long term one, but it's one that he's fully committed to, no matter how long it takes.

    Weapons:

    History/Background: This will not be a catagory, all characters will have the same basic backround.

    GM: Captain Raynor, 08:00 a.m., Onboard the Protoss/Terran hybrid cruiser, Golden Raven

    Captain Raynor overlooked the group of Legionaires in front of him...all had gathered here at his request, 'request', they had chosen to be here. He scanned over them, they were all present, save one.

    "Legionaires, tench'hut!" The legionaires snapped into a silent and overly exerted force of perfect assassins, soldiers, and saviors. "I will be reading off a list of names, these five will be given a special assignment. When we are done here you are to report to the weapons expert onboard. He will tell you where to go after that.

    "And the list is...Nikita Ardelline, AKA Twilight. You are in command of this mission. Gordon Betts, AKA Beetle. Nobu Kahn, AKA Bloodbath, interesting callsign. Gary Omek, AKA Echo. And last but not least, Karen Hope, AKA Archangel. The rest of you, report to the master-at-arms for your next assignments. 'Good Luck', and as always, 'Have Fun'."

    Raynor stepped down from the podium and awaited the the Legionaires all to pass out the door, shaking each of their hands as he had done so many times before each mission.

    [OOC: Feel free to take some time to get and know the other characters, We are in no rush here, but this would be the twelvth or so year that you have been working together. If anyone adresses GJ's character TAG him, and either he or I will answer it. Also, I estimate it will take anywhere from five to fifteen minutes for you to get from the meeting area to the weapons lockers.]

    GM: Tarandar(Dark Templar), 08:00 a.m., Orbit above Char Sara.

    Tarandar stood in front of the runaway legionaire, towering above the 'little man' or so he called him. The Dark Templars psionic abilities allowed him to know that this one wanted nothing else to do but take revenge on the Zerg, just the kind of soldier he needed in this fight for Char Sara.

    "Red Ghost, you are young, and powerful. You are just like your brothers and sisters, an asset to any who would wield the power of the Legion. You are renegade, and they will come for you. When they do, you must rejoin them...or the galaxy will be doomed."

    Red Ghost sat before the Dark Templar altar as he stared at the burning flames and meditated. He had fled to the planet almost a year ago from Legion Headquarters after he had recieved disturbing clairvoyent visions. He had sought refuge amongst the outcastes of the Protoss that there was still much tension from and had worked on enhancing his abilities without concern for what laid ahead.

    "I know exactly what they want from me. They want me to become another pawn in their war against the Zerg and Earth Federation but all they think about is their outdated and ridiculous military high command views."

    He rose "I have moved beyond their simple vision of the world and wish to unite all of mankind in a single understanding collective whole like the Protoss."

    The Dark Templar said "Those views are forbidden by our kind you know."

    Red Ghost said "I understand this and appreciate you accepted me into your ranks nevertheless."

    The Dark Templar said "Your machine is ready."

    Casvall wandered then towards the sight of the warrior machine that greeted him. As a Goliath pilot he believed that it was simply too limited for standard battle against the enemies they faced. He'd used his enhanced mind to help the Dark Templars design a new weapon system. One that he termed The Reaper. It was a combination of Protoss Dragoon technology and the Goliath frame with flight capabilities equal to some Protoss machinery.

    The Dark Templar said "It is time for you to begin your war against the enemy."

    Casvall replied "I shall smote their ruins across the starlanes."

    8:00 am Earth.

    President Scorpius stared at the screen as he looked over the results again and again "This is the battle where Admiral Dugalle died with his entire fleet. We've run countless simulations on the Earth Federation Expeditionary Force and what we've come up with is nothing. The collosal failure of the project is something that we put in your hands Admiral Cain Ro."

    Admiral Cain Ro was a woman whom had an infamous reputation on Earth as a psychopath and a lunatic that had somehow nevertheless managed to keep getting promoted to higher positions. The reason was apparently that the Federation could think of no way to deal with the unrest on the planet or its colonies save by increasingly draconian uses of blunt force. The existence of the Zerg and the Protoss having been leaked only ensured that the people needed to be shown that Earth was the most powerful race in the universe.

    "My mission is to take a fleet three times the size of Admiral Duvalles and complete the mission of subjugating the Zerg and Protoss?" Admiral Ro said with her cold and dead eyes staring back at the President.

    "More than that, eliminate them," Scorpius emphasized. "We can't have any slip ups this time."

    Admiral Cain smiled with a almost demonic grin.

    GM: Tarandar, 08:04 am, Orbit above Char Sara.

    You should know that this weapon is still in it's prototype phase, it could overload and kill you in the heat of battle." He wasn't too worried, if the Legionaire did explode, it wasn't on his chest. If the Legionaire didn't blow up, then that's one less Zerg hive he had to worry about.

    "Come, the battle starts in a few hours, I want to get a training excersive in with you."

    The Dark Templar leads Red Ghost down a long hallway with many rooms. In the dark silence they finally come to another door.

    "In here is a simlulations room, they will outfit us with Sim Suits. You will be using a sim designed to replicate the mauevers of the Reaper, come."

    The two split apart from each other and start to get ready.

    Tarandar, Simulation Room
    Historical Simulation 3329#

    Space is a beautiful thing. The sheer emptiness of it can either be terrifying or awesome or more likely alittle of both.

    Red Ghost stared at the coldness of space while his Reaper-class battlesuit loomed above the Confederacy Space Station that was currently a mass of fire. The simulation was during the original struggle against the Overmind. The Simulation had elements changed but to fully capture the feel...even his memories were altered to that of the pilot they'd been taken from. Jim Raynor's memories ironically. The fact that the two men were utterly and completely unalike made for a curious mesh of history and thoughts.

    "I would complain about fortune's hand but I don't think that's going to do me very much good," He muttered to no one in particular as the Captain of his squadron dispatched everyone but him...something about his being a 'pompous ass with no combat experience.' Casval had unfortunately pointed out then that the Captain himself had no actual experience in combat due to the fact that the Civil War had ended well before his tour of duty. That had gotten him confined to quarters.

    ....as expected said Captain had annihilated his Goliath squadron through direct assault on the enemy force. Casvall had been promptly relieved of his confinement by the terrified space personnel and instructed to go out in the suit that was the only remaining defense for the refueling point. Given the enemy had managed to wipe out the entire squadron at this point, it was a desperation move and Casvall had privately informed them it would be better to lure them into ground combat that he would of course lead the fight on the base but they had nevertheless insisted he go out in his suit. The burdens of a noble knight....

    "HALT EVILDOER!" Casvall spoke as he positioned his mobile battlesuit above the space station's hangar deck even as the enemy was already preparing for boarding. He gathered that the opponents were human beings rather than aliens, a disappointment given that might have excused their utter rolling over the squadron of EarthCore. He suspected by the ramshackle nature of the weaponry that they were pirates of a most common and venal sort. Perhaps soldiers of Arctus Mengsk "You have comitted an act of heinous treason against the government and slain my brother soldiers. However, to honor your warrior efforts. I offer you a chance to..."

    They of course opened fire on him while he was making his speach.

    "Typical," Casvall muttered even as he hit his backpack to move out of the way of the streaming plasma particles aimed at him. He was lucky they didn't actually move at the speed of light. "No one has time to do anything PROPERLY anymore."

    The attackers were a dozen starfighters by the looks of it with the remains of two squadrons apparently forming into a single one. At least the enemy had not been flawless in its victory over his deceased comrades. The ships were M-type fighters that were illegal cobbling together of Starfighter Surplus that was perfectly viable but had been replaced for newer models that were mostly different by having a couple of extra buttons or a dozen kilometer higher topspeed (that was useless in space).

    "My condolences to you for your iminent death," Casvall muttered as he brought down his targetting periscope while the missiles from his attackers headed towards him at a massive speed.

    Casvall immediately cut the power to his suit before shooting it in reverse. Casvall ejected his suit's transponder and the rockets of the enemy and the fighters themselves sailed over his suit's head. The maneuver threw the enemy group into a loop as the transponder had no motion and few of the fighters were caught by friendly fire. Casvall himself used his onboard machine guns to tear through the cockpits of two other vessels that detonated amongst their fellows.

    The confusion allowed him to lure the remainder out at different speeds while d

    "Echo got up from the breifing room and wandered the hallways, looking for his master at arms. He was anxiously awaiting his assignment. He had worked on machines at his time at the Terran barracks, and was eagerly awaiting his chance to repair/operate the goliaths and the wraiths with the other legionaires"

    OoC: Here is the cliff-notes version in case you didn't read the GM post carefully enough. Your characters are supposed to go to the Armory and meet with a weapon tech there. The master-at-arms comment was directed towards the NPC Legionnaires.

    For further clarification: all legionnaires are rotated through their legions, as was stated in the Legion background. This is scheduled to take place once every two years, meaning this would be the second rotation. The stated Legion on your character sheets would be the most recent Legion you have served in. Apologies if we were not clear enough on this.

    Any further questions can be asked here or PMed to myself or Pheonix. Now commence with the roleplaying your ways to the Armory so that my tech specialist can show off the guns!

    BloodBath

    08:00 a.m., Onboard the Protoss/Terran hybrid cruiser, Golden Raven


    "Legionaires, tench'hut!"

    Bloodbath had been going over new killing maneuvers in his mind when Captain Raynor called them to attention. Immediately and without hesitation, Bloodbath complied.

    "I will be reading off a list of names, these five will be given a special assignment. When we are done here you are to report to the weapons expert onboard. He will tell you where to go after that."

    Bloodbath withheld a smile. The assigning of weapons meant that they'd be goin on a mission. Good. He could hardly wait, for that's when he felt most alive. When the 'Reaper' loomed over the killing fields and snatched up any who was too unfortunate not to see him coming.

    "And the list is...Nikita Ardelline, AKA Twilight. You are in command of this mission."

    Bloodbath looked over at his new CO and with his cold grey lupine eyes. His somber facial expression did not change, but he felt a reaction inside. It wasn't that the new CO was a woman, for he had served with some extremely deadly and capable female warriors before, it was just that she....

    "Gordon Betts, AKA Beetle..." Captain Raynor called out, derailing Bloodbath from his current train of thought and bringing his attention back to the moment at hand. Hmmm... he'd have to watch that. He couldn't have telepaths picking at his thoughts. He'd have to reinforce his 'empty-mind state'.

    "Nobu Kahn, AKA Bloodbath, interesting callsign..."

    Bloodbath inwardly winced when he heard his real name spoken aloud. Thankfully he'd mastered his outward reaction to that name long ago. Nobu Kahn was no more, now there was only BloodBath.

    "Gary Omek, AKA Echo. And last but not least, Karen Hope, AKA Archangel. The rest of you, report to the master-at-arms for your next assignments. 'Good Luck', and as always, 'Have Fun'."

    Raynor stepped down from the podium and awaited the Legionnaires all to pass out the door, shaking each of their hands as he had done so many times before each mission. BloodBath new the routine well, but before he made it out, he stole another look at the CO. BloodBath frowned slightly. He inwardly hardened himself against what he felt, for he knew it to be the beginnings of weakness; a chink in the armour as it were. Nobu had been the one thus afflicted, but not BloodBath. He was bereft of such weaknesses.

    With a smooth motion, the young soldier turned and made it out the room, not hurrying. His gait was calm, silent and knowing, and even though his frame was completely wreathed only in armormesh body suit, Bloodbath's skills in battle were almost as good as standard armour, but what he wore and used also depended on the type of mission he was sent on. That's why he seemed to smirk as he passed the guards at the door. He was on his way to the armoury, where the tools of war awaited the five who were just assigned to this new mission, the ones obviously worthy.

    Seeing the one called "Echo" walking ahead, BloodBath maintained a discreet enough distance as he shadowed the Legionnaire to the ship's armoury. The Golden Raven was quite a large cruiser, so little impromptu exercise in stealth couldn't hurt right at that moment.

    Beetle

    08:00 a.m., Onboard the Protoss/Terran hybrid cruiser, Golden Raven


    Beetle stood at atnnention as the Captain ran through the list of names. He wasn't too concerned with most of them, not even the one referred to as "Bloodbath". Beetle stuck his tongue out of his mouth and licked his dry lips in response to that name and felt as if he'd just drank a whole gallon of raw plasma.

    When he heard he'd be getting his weaponry, Bettle perked up again and turned his eyes to wherever it was they'd need to go.

    "The Armory," Beetle whispered in his deep voice, almost sounding like a guttural growl to the other Legionaires. He didn't care. If he got to operate some type of heavy weaponry, he'd be a happy camper. Camper the term he never used lightly. He would usually camp in one position, observe the enemy from afar, and then either pounce or blow their heads off with a mortar round.

    The soldier just grinned and eyed the armory as if it were the most beautiful woman he'd ever seen. "Don't worry baby, I'm coming for ya..."

    IC: Nikita Ardelline
    Location: Onboard the Protoss/Terran hybrid cruiser, Golden Raven

    Nikita rose from her seat in the briefing room, smoothing out her skirt. So she would be CO for the mission hm? Well that was lovely. She had already been dreading working with this group of dunderheads. Classica tended to consider themselves quite the elite division. Any zealot could burst into a room and start slashing folks..... but it took far more level and head and steady a hand to strategically lead a flight of carriers in a dogfight. At least as CO, she wouldn't have to argue with the men, live on their slop and deal with their no doubt upcoming tantrums.

    She just wondered how hung up they would all be taking orders from a woman. Hm. They would be in for quite a suprise to be certain, as behind her demure and professional exterior held much of the same psionic capabilities that they all had. She just used it for different purposes, rejecting the path of the gritty warrior that they had all decided to pursue.

    But now they had to go to the armory. Time to pick up weapons or what have you. Boys and their toys, no doubt they would all flock to the one that made the biggest boom. Typical. She stopped to look at one of the mercs. She didn't know his name. His jet black hair and mysterious bangs caught her eye, but the creepiness of his stare slightly overrode her initial intrigue. What was he looking at? Nikita diverted her gaze, but when she returned it, the man was gone, she being one of the last to exit the room. Hm. She would have to keep an eye out for that one.

    The woman followed the rest of the group by herself, following up the rear. The clicks of her heels rung in sharp contrast to the thuds of the men's boots. Oh this was going to be a load of fun. She was already missing her templar first mate.

    She would probably take a pistol. Yes, something small and elegant.

    IC : Echo

    Echo continued his way down to the armoury, sensing someone was watching him. He couldn't make anything of it, so he moved on. Walking further down the hall he met up with the rest of the legionaires on their way to the armoury. He followed them a while and then he jumped up behind his commander, Nikita and scared her half to death. With a muttered apology he walked on and entered the armoury.

    "Wow..." He thought. There were so many guns, so many grenades! Even Rocket Launchers! He felt the handle and the barrell of the high powered rifle sitting on the top of the shelf. This was the one he was going to choose.

    But, still this is not what Echo had been waiting for, he was waiting to get the the shop, to work on those great goliaths he had been hearing about ....
