Orbiting a trio of stars in a solar system approximately 150 light-years from Sol, the planet Zion is one of the more distant colonies under the control of the far-reaching Galactic Colonial Confederation. An arid world with a diameter of roughly 11000 kilometers, its landscape is alternately dominated by rocky mountain ranges and vast salt flats. A shallow, high-salinity ocean with many barren islands forms around the equator in the eastern hemisphere, around which much of the population of thirty million has settled. Since around 2110, this seemingly barren and inhospitable place has been the home of the flexible and dynamic Jewish culture, who has transformed this place into a thriving colony world with a indomitable economy based on mining vital resources such as titanium. In the seventy-eight years of peace since the disastrous Corporation Wars, Zion has become one of the jewels of the glistening Confederate crown. But there are always holdouts. Once a group of honest laborers much like the Jewish, the fanatical new leadership of the Aryan home moons in the Rho Coronae Borealis system have formed the totalitarian Aryan Empire, forming a massive armada to dominate space and terra firma alike. They seek to build their master race in the galaxy, declaring war on all races judged inferior, with a pledge to wipe their memory from the pages of history. On the morning of 30 September 2219, alternate space surveillance surrounding the HD 188753 system detected several very large masses approaching the system before going offline. Several ships of the Zion Arm of the Cygnus Primary Fleet were sent to investigate, but also went offline. Shortly before 11.00, as the remainder of the fleet was put on alert, forty-nine Aryan ships arrived in-system between the primary jump points, cutting the system off from escape, and immediately engaged the Confederate forces. Simultaneously, fifteen troop ships bearing an invasion army of 350000 arrived inside the defense perimeter and began the ground invasion. The first shots of the Semitic War rang. The battle for Zion had begun. Welcome to the Semitic War. You can play as a member of the Confederate Army, Marine Corps, Navy, or Life-Saving Service (a futuristic Coast Guard) as the Aryan armada opens its mouth to swallow Zion, and it's your job to break its jaw. The rules are pretty simple. 1. Keep the swearing and violence to a minimum. 2. Keep the OOC to a minimum. 3. No God-RPing. 4. Keep your characters realistic. The height and weight restrictions are 190.5 cm (6'3") and 108.8 kg (around 240 pounds), and none of that "pure muscle" stuff if you come close to those maximums. 5. PM your character sheets to me for approval. 6. The GMs (myself, [link=http://boards.theforce.net/UserPages/Profile.aspx?user=Deiskrad]Deiskrad[/link], and [link=http://boards.theforce.net/UserPages/Profile.aspx?user=Vangarian]Vangarian[/link]) are the law. 7. Kick some ass and have fun! Character sheet: Name: Birthdate (Age): Homeworld: Affiliation (CAMF Army, Navy, Marine Corps, Life-Saving Service): Specialty: Rank: Weapons: Bio: Go now.
