in 2899 Skyy Rassmunsen discovered the wreck of the starship Saint Michael adrift at the edge of known space docked at an abandoned ring station and the site of a former trading planet between the the Confederation and the vanished colony of Evangelion, aboard it he found a strange battle scene between people wearing similar uniforms, he also found Lt. Rain Artuga frozen cryogenically in a pod, they repair the ship and rename it The Last Evangelion and immediately travel back to Evangelion to find the planet completely destroyed, blasted into an expanding cloud of debris. they return to known space and pick up a crew, and set out discover the fate of Evangelion before ts fate becomes their own.
I'll be playing as Rain. the story will start with the hiring of a crew, before anyone can do anything i need someone to play Skyy, we'll be co-captains of the Evangelion. everyone else won't join in the traditional way, instead of just creating a character they'll have to create a 'resume' and 'apply' for a position as a crewmember. this will allow me to start the story as soon as I have someone to play Skyy although you will need to speak to us before we know who you are it adds to realism
We're currently accepting applications for the following positions:
Marines/turret gunners: 2
Once I have someone to play Skyy the story will open up aboard or ship currently docked at the space station Capricus III, In 48 hours after the game starts we'll be pulling out of port, regardless of how may people have signed on with us, I'll be acting not only as a character but as a GM to run things smoothly, only i can pause the game and i almost never will, even if i have to leave. for the most part you'll be traveling aboard the ship visiting with strange cultures and fighting various factions, but there will also be a hidden task: I will be throwing in clues either in the form of objects or nightmares my character is having. you'll need to discover the fate of Evangelion in time to stop history from repeating itself.
THE FREE TRADE STARSHIP LAST EVANGELION RECRUITMENT FORM
PLEASE FILL OUT COMPLETELY YOUR APPLICATION WILL BE PROCESSED ASAP
APPLYING FOR POSITION AS:
ANY MEDICAL CONDITIONS:
ANY GENE MODS:
ANY CRIMINAL HISTORY:(DON'T WORRY WE DON'T COUNT IT AGAINST YOU)
ANY OTHER RELEVANT INFORMATION:
If your applying for a position as a drifter aboard the ship (someone who just kinda hangs out) fill out above form omitting the position your applying for and mark it as DRIFTER
As you can see we don't ask for a history of bio, you'll have to tell us these things or not since in real life you don't instantly know them. it adds to realism.
No secret powers: as in no pulling tremendous cans of butt kicking out of thin air, if your character is in trouble and they die make a new one.
Only one character at a time per person.
thats me/Rain its my ship so i don't have to fill out an application. neither does Skyy but i can tell you he's 23 from the Colony of Hell's Forge and a certified klepto (someone who steals stuff) I'll let the person playing Skyy choose a pic for him.
HAVE FUN AND WELCOME ABOARD!
