Title: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: Yossitaru on September 30, 2009, 09:42:56 am
This RP will be using the brand new Hybrid RP rules, which may be found here (http://www.gamingsteve.com/blab/index.php?topic=16650.0).

Sign up quick, I'm planing on starting this as early as Friday evening EST.



Congratulations, you have been hand picked by the stalwart Commander Francis Deion to be the crew of Farsearcher Four, the greatest space station of the greatest empire on the planet Eyaru Prime. Starting from an orbit around Erayru Prime, to calibrate the station's equipment and crew's bearings in space, you will be part of history, to chart uncharted space, meet unmet races, and maybe even find those green women you always dreamed of. The road will be difficult, the other empires of Eyaru Prime may attempt to sabotage your attempts with Farsearcher Four, so stay vigilant, you never know when you may need to defend the station, your new home!



Name: Francis Deion
Age: 63
Role: Commander/Captain
Biography: One of the few to still remember the blunders of all the Farsearchers One through Three, Francis thew his life to danger to aspire towards his current position of commander of the latest Farsearch. The media followed him closely as he graduated top of his class in mechanical engineering, space specialization, and went on to work closely with the designers and developers of Farsearch Four to make sure it would not meet the same fate as its predecessors. As the space station neared completion, Francis surprised few when he officially announced his position as commander of Farsearch Four and started on a search for the most qualified to join the crew.

Name: Marcus Gray
Age: 35
Role: Security
Biography: Marcus Gray is a commander at heart and is the leader of farsearcher's defense. While the scientists of the Farsearcher Four go about their daily business, he protects them and keeps the station in order. He spent several years in a small squad of marines before receiving his officer training. Even before he became an officer, he would always give his squad mates orders and helpful advice to keep them alive in times of extreme pressure.

Marcus follows a tight schedule every morning, but will not hesitate to help those along the way. On the same note, if he sees something or someone causing others trouble or harm, he wont hesitate to step in and break up the issue himself.

Name: Alistair Levi
Age: 35
Role: Administration
Biography: Alistair Levi is the current in the long line of the empire's ruling house of Roh. Seen by many as a guy who got a cush job with daddy's money, Levi hides under his posh exterior a true beat for control, at five he reorganized his nanny's schedules for maximum efficiency, and at twelve he was charting Primean war parameters, a military genius this is offset by his social awkwardness; form a young age, he treats people like video games, often manipulating them without any care or conscious, whether this will change on the staion is a matter worth seeing...

Name: Alexa Rand
Age: 39
Role: Sciences (specifically Xenobiology and Xenoecology) / Medicine (unofficial)
Biography: Considered by many to be one of the best in her field, Rand was selected for the project for her practical, no-nonsense attitude. She is not one to jump to conclusions, making her ideal for interpreting the first detailed sensor readouts of alien worlds. Unfortunately, because she is a specialist, she has little to officially do until they actually reach said alien worlds. She passes the time as an assistant nurse in the Med Bay.

Name: Nikolai Vasiliev
Age: 26
Role: Small Craft Pilot/Security
Biography: Nikolai never did good in school. That wasn't to say he wasn't intelligent, just that he didn't try very hard. After realizing that his academics wouldn't get him into college, he joined the military. After a few years in the army, his qualities were recognized and his commanding officer put him up for a transfer to the Air Corps. From here Nikolai soared. He spent 4 years piloting all types of craft, both planetary and orbital, military and civilian. This invaluable experience made him an easy chose for the Farsearch team.

Name:  Will Reschard
Age:  57
Role:  Senior Monkey Wrangler
Bio:  No one quite expects to end up as a Wrangler.  It's not that the job is undesirable (most of the unsavory problems with monkeys were solved by gene-modding and very effective training), but that the career path leading to it tends to be complicated enough that no one actually plans on it happening at the start.

Certainly, Will didn't expect it when he went to school for spacecraft engineering.  But, somehow, over the next thirty years of on and off work, occasionally going back to school as the field changed, and taking a different minor every time, he ended up with the perfect skill set for the job.  Surprisingly, he liked it enough that he stayed on and eventually got assigned as the Senior Wrangler on the Farsearch Four.



And now to explain what a Monkey Wrangler is.

Every ship requires maintenance.  Often enough, a great deal of this maintenance takes place in small, hard to reach places, and is mostly a matter of replacing some small part or checking for wear.  Faced with the problem of reaching these areas, billions more could be spent on adding adequate crawl ways to the ship designs, or come up something to reach them.

At first robots were considered, but it would be years before they could articulate well enough to handle a significant portion of repairs.  In the mean time, it was between a number of specialized robots and a biological solution.  On the one hand, the robots took up less space and could be cared for relatively easily.  On the other, anything which caused the ship major damage could do the same to them, leaving the crew without the ability to repair when they need it most, and you can generally just give monkeys a storage closet with hammocks and feed them out of the same stock as people without installing a charging bay.  In the end it came down to gene-modded capuchin monkeys being orders of magnitude cheaper due to monkeys already existing and most of the work in genetic intelligence and dexterity modification already being done in unrelated drug trials.

Now most crews are accompanied by a number of monkeys, trained and gene-modded to navigate the innards of a ship and replace or report on parts.  A handful of Wranglers look after them, ensuring they are physically and psychologically fit and running training exercises.  The field requires an understanding of mechanics, veterinary medicine, human and animal psychology, and the mental fortitude to deal with a room full of bored monkeys.

Name: Nathan Taylor
Age: 32
Role: Doctor
Bio: The son of a physician and a surgeon, there was never any question about where Nathan would eventually make a career.  He had always done exceptional in school, and had managed to get into the best medical universities available on full scholarship, not that he needed it though with his parents' connections and sizeable wealth.  Still, despite his status, intelligence and money, he had never lost touch of why he wanted to become a doctor in the first place.  To help people.  This outlook has kept him happy and popular with among his peers and clients, his friendly attitude and cheerful smile always welcomed around the hospital.

This popularity, coupled with his profound skill for one as young as him and his connections made him stand out among candidates for the Farsearch 4 voyage.  Upon first hearing of his invitiation to join the expidition, he was reluctant.  He had commitments to his patients, and was not happy with the idea of leaving them.  But, with insitances from his parents, he eventually came around, and is now looking forward to the adventure that awaits him as Chief Medical Officer on the space station.

Role: Navigation
Bio: Originally an astronomer, around the age of 35 Miyoko suddenly panicked, realizing she was unhappy with the idea of working in an observatory her whole life. She went back to school and became a pilot. Despite her seemingly simple exterior, when she sets her eye on something she approaches it with surprising determination and confidence. Graduating first in her class, her combined knowledge of space and navigational skills made her an obvious choice for ship navigator.

Bio: As Harry grew up he was a fan of building robots and going out to space. As he grew up he started to forget his space dream and became a full Robotic Engineer and built robots like S.A.R.A.H.: Synthetic Artificial Rational Assassination Humanoid and his favorite B.U.T.L.E.R.: Biomechanical Unit Trained for Logical Exploration and Repair. But around the age of 26 he became going to build space robots that were just like B.U.T.L.E.R. so he went back to his Space Dream. Then he saw Farsearch Spacestation so he came on board

Name: James King

Age: 30

Role: Storekeeper

Bio: James King is the Storekeeper on Farsearch Four and is responsible for ensuring that people get what they need, when they need it. He grew up in a moderately prosperous fishing village outside of one of the eastern urban centers on Eyaru Minor. For much of his childhood, James worked with his father as one of the village's sales representatives. In the morning they would head into the city and ensure that their village was getting the most for their goods. At night they would head back home and help the villagers load the next day's shipment. It wasn't the easiest work in the world but it exposed James to the wide world of commerce. James left the village during his teenage years and set course for the city where he hoped to open up a store of some sort. He spent the next decade working for various people and learning about the different aspects of supply and demand, world cultures, and the art of the sale.

It was during one of his more recent jobs that James became known to the people in charge of the Farsearch Four program. A delegation of scientists and researchers visiting from Eyaru Prime had put a call out for a rare breed of flower. Their hope was to be able to gather a sample so that it could be used to determine the effectiveness of Farsearcher Four's toxin reclamation system. By chance, one of their associates recommended James as "this guy who can find anything", and so they tracked him down. Not only was James able to get them their sample, he was also able to secure a steady stream of the rare perennial. Time passed... and then two years later James received a notification that he had been chosen to take part in an exciting new program, the Farsearch Four program. He signed up immediately.

Name: Louis Peelzer
Age: 41
Role: Maintenance
Biography: Louis was a simple engineer until he decides to quit his old job and tried going higher up to support his family. To do this, he tried applying for the Farsearch Four, a massive space station set out to travel to the farther reaches of space, and got accepted.

His technological knowledge has helped him through the ranks in the maintenance department. He is pretty good at fixing most defaults without any help, unless it's a big problem.

Guys I was wondering if we could edit our bio posts so that they seem to be in the same universe, maybe an offhand remark here a comment there, just something to show unity. I see several opportunities in the last couple of posts and i though it would help us get into character.

What do you have in mind?

To use my post as an example; i referenced the house of Roh, others could then make passing laces to how their character met up there as in "He worked as the House of Roh’s chief engineer” or "she worked for the chief rivals of the house of Roh." This also implies that there is a royal system with houses, so many could also make up their own houses, one might even fill out much of the back-story just with aside remarks in the post.

Name: Walter Norton

Age: 55

Role: Ambassador

Bio:  The position of Chief Ambassador for Farsearch Four could be seen in two ways.  The chance to be the first representative to new lifeforms is the opportunity of a lifetime.  Then again, being a diplomat on an isolated spacecraft with no function to perform unless by some incredibly slim chance you find intelligent life, on a mission where all predecessors have failed spectacularly, is a bit less appealing.  Walt saw it as being sent out to pasture.  That is, a pasture on the side of an active volcano.

Walter Norton has served the empire for decades, first with a stellar military career and then in the diplomatic ranks.  However, due to some events out of his control and some which were very much in his control, he fell out of favor with the powers that be.  Unable to be fired thanks to his tenure and otherwise impeccable record, it was decided that Norton would instead be "honored" with a position on Farsearch Four.  Resigned to his lot, Ambassador Norton has decided to make the best of his situation.

Name: Fenrir Valkyr
Age: 34
Role: Chief Chef
Biography: As a young boy Fenrir was abandoned by his father to be raised by his mother. He was bullied for his lack of a father and at age 16 decided to punch the kids back. Upon hitting one of them he was filled with a feeling of power. He began to become the people he hated and, once his mother found out, was sent to various military camps. There he began to grow more violent and became friends with the cook. The cook taught him about food and eventually Fenrir decided to try cooking on his own. Upon returning home he began taking his anger out on meat. Hanging hams that weighed up to 35 lbs from chains in his room and took to them with a cleaver. During this time he became a heavy drinker and this lead to many self inflicted injuries. Chopping at a ham he, foolishly, grabbed the chunk and swung, chopping of his index finger. He thought of this as an assault from the ham and hacked at it again and again, putting out his right eye. Felling hated by God he began treating food more gently and upon his 28th birthday joined the marines as a chef in the mess hall. Now he is working as the head chef for Farsearch Four.

This is a rather weak story of senseless violence and a weak redemption. Maybe if you focused more on the time with the marines, and less with the random violence, we might have something here. As is, we have a sub-par cook who has a missing eye and finger, with the liability of going on another food related madness.

What I see here isn't something Deion would be looking for in a team of the "best of the bests".

I want want to make the average quality of my posts go up at least some, so I want to try out at RP.  Hybrid style at least seems a bit less complicated.

Name: Susan Deriben
Age: 37
Role: Biologist
Biography: Susan had been interested in plants and animals since she was a little girl.  She aced her high school biology and chemistry classes and then attended Yake University for 6 years and was awarded a Master's Degree +30 in Biology and a Master's in chemistry.  After finishing her college, she started her biology life when she was 25.  She teamed with other biologists and she has discovered various new species and plants.  Susan was eager to look for alien lifeforms and was chosen by the captain of the Farsearch 4 as the head biologist of the crew.

Raz, were you planning on participating?  If you were, is the fact that it's callled a space station and not a spaceship so irritating to you as to keep you from posting a character bio?  If you were not, why the heck do you care?

Uh, DnDFreak.  What's going on in your post there?  You seem to have dropped into the RP with a character who is some sort of hacker/ potential terrorist as far as I could tell.  You don't have a bio though.  Care to explain?  If you've got permission from someone I'm sure it's fine, but otherwise you really shouldn't jsut be dropping in like that.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: Yossitaru on October 03, 2009, 08:18:28 pm
Yeah, this is so far an unsolicited breach. Furthermore, this station has been operative for less than a day and it illogically has a prisoner. Even with permission this is a grossly unacceptable action.

Remove your post, or have it removed. You have been reported to the moderators.

Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: Yossitaru on October 03, 2009, 08:43:11 pm
The only characters ever to be cleared without a bio within all of the RPs I have played in my time here, were villains who we already known to be the current arc villain (Feofan in this case, and he will have a bio when he arrives on Farsearch), or secondary characters for already established players.

In any case, what's been displayed already is highly unacceptable, even if the character was pre-announced.

Sorry you guys, Didn't see the OOC among the thread titles.  Must have been farther down last I was here.  I just went straight from the hybrid system post to here.

Do you want me to just delete the post, or make the bio, or what?

Plus, who said he's a villain?  His motives aren't as black/and/white as you may think.  He's still on your side...
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: Yossitaru on October 03, 2009, 09:13:55 pm
No one said he was, but starting out in the "brig" of a research station that has no reason to be taking prisoners from the planet, is about as appropriate as the self destructive chef.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: dndfreak on October 03, 2009, 09:17:25 pm
According to the sequence of the post, he was placed in said cell after Feofan's henchman told him that Farsearch 4 had launched the day before.  Marc is a crew member and was caught doing whatever at least 21 hours after launch.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: Yossitaru on October 03, 2009, 09:21:49 pm
Feofan is actually not the one in charge, and he hasn't done anything yet, hence why he was being berated by his employer. No one on the ship should be a liability though, since I had specified in the first post here that everyone on board was hand picked by Commander Deion himself.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: dndfreak on October 03, 2009, 09:41:46 pm
He isn't a... O.K., let me just post what the bio would be.  It should clear up his motive enough.

Name: Marcus Stoffield
Age: 28
Role: Surface Scout
Biography: Stoffield graduated out of high school at the age of 14.  He disappeared off the map for a few years, and nothing has record of him until his twenties when he went to college.  He studied a little of everything, especially psychology and geography.  He's always said he wanted to explore distant planets, but some worry about what happened in those seven years.  After passing through college with barely a single wrong answer, Deion became intrigued in recruiting Marcus.  However, he made sure to conduct a full background check on the man first.  Marcus accepted with joy, but is uneasy about what Deion managed to dig up about his past...

So there you have it, Marc was trying to find out what they discovered about his past.  Here's the kicker- he doesn't know himself.  I figure it'll come up in time, but according to my D20 he didn't get enough time to find the files.

...Assuming he exists.

Apparently he doesn't, since someone deleted the post.

Oh dear...
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: dndfreak on October 03, 2009, 09:58:03 pm

Only he never happened, according to the actual RP thread.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: Yossitaru on October 03, 2009, 10:01:00 pm
Even with that, this still isn't a quite acceptable character. A driving force to recover lost memories is rather too far beyond the scope of this test RP, and if he's going to any length to find out, that's not exactly material for a handpicked member of the crew. Taking the position of Deion and seeing what is known of this one's education and known tendencies, he's simply not qualified.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: dndfreak on October 03, 2009, 10:07:01 pm
Not to recover them, he doesn't want to know.  Until now he's made no effort either way.  Other than what has been discovered (if anything), what is known is his straight A's and long-lasting motivation- that his position on the crew has always been his dream.

But whatever, not my RP.  Guess I'll be going now.

Oh yeah, I should probably mention that there are four sets of bays, one on each end of the base. Let's just say Nikolai is at another set since Josasa isn't around to respond...

Indeed!

Also what's the word on pacing, Yossi? We're going a tad slower than normal, correct?

Yeah, I have a bit of a clash with Zolinn here, and then things will slow down a bit to give everyone a chance to get Feofan.

Alrighty, just posted a quick perspective from the other side of the ship.

Phooey.  I had a whole post set up that makes no sense anymore now that the warning has gone out about Feofan.  Back to the drawing board.

EDIT:  Agh!  I've inadvertantly gotten myself into a position where I need to have a fair understanding of how to treat gunshot wounds!  This is complicated!

Post by: Yossitaru on October 04, 2009, 10:27:34 pm
Uh, martyk? I probably should have been a little clearer in my post, the gun is actually a very powerful stungun-like weapon, with the ability to puncture a small hole to contain the electricity under the person's skin. I OK'd that with Zolinn, but giving him a hole through his body is probably a bit much without his permission.

I'll provide more details on the gun when I put up his bio tomorrow.
Title: Re: Space Station Farsearch Four - The hybrid test RP - OOC
Post by: martyk on October 04, 2009, 10:34:22 pm
Alrighty then. Stungun.  I can work with that.  I was under the assumption it was a normal gun in which case a hole tends to be best case scenario, but if it's just a stungun then no problemo.

Name: Feofan
Age: 34
Role: <Unknown>
Biography: Very little is known about the man known simply as Feofan. It is said he is a strong and nimble man whose skills are only outweighed by his lust for money. His name is often whispered in the underground of Erayru Prime, but no one is sure if the rumors are true. The only thing that is known that if you offer a large enough pay, someone claiming to be Feofan will answer. If your offer and conditions are acceptable, you're likely to have your job done in a most suitable manner, if not, you might as well say good bye to your credits, with no compensation.

Equipment: Being almost synonymous with the shadows of Erayru Prime, Feofan has access to large variety of items only found in the black markets.

Deep Shocker: A small taser like gun with two protruding spikes. A weapon that has been banned across all the civilized worlds in the colonized galaxies, the deep shocker is an extremely sadistic weapon that allows the user to shock beneath the skin and deliver debilitating nervous damage.

Light Spacesuit: A custom spacesuit designed exclusively for Feofan that allows survival in deep space and the freedom of movement he needs to get the job done.

Nafoef: Feofan's personal space craft. Its small size allows for nimble movement and general ease of avoiding detection, but also has a compliment of disproportionately powerful weapons, just in case.

Raz, were you planning on participating?  If you were, is the fact that it's callled a space station and not a spaceship so irritating to you as to keep you from posting a character bio?  If you were not, why the heck do you care?

'Just Cause' is a justifiable answer? I seem to have finally hit a point where I lack time in excess.

Please stop harassing the players. If you are not participating then you need to move on.

Summoner, we've talked it over and we're going to have to ask you to improve your posts.  Use complete sentences.  Try reading it aloud before you post.  Note whether your actions are impossible due to previous posts, such as the man you are shooting being in a set of narrow vents.

Let me put it this way:  If you need to tell us what your post says in the OOC to clear things up, your post needs to be better.

Also, Summoner, your little robot thing is rapidly becoming a Swiss Army knife. Pick one or MAYBE two abilities for it and stick with them.

Both of you don't really have any reason to be in this thread.  Bro, we appreciate your interest in the RP, but we can handle things like this ourselves.  Raz, when a mod tells you to quit doing something, most people stop.  I would suggest that you do the same thing.

You're mistaken. The moderators addressed this topic (the out of character topic) because of a lack of civility on the part of two people that weren't even playing. As far as the actual RP is concerned, things are just fine. Though we could have a few more posts per day, that wouldn't hurt. ;)

Well I'm kinda waiting for all hell to break loose.  Until then, Nathan is calmy going about his buissiness in the hospital.  I'll see what I can do, but promises are the opposite of what I can give you.

So it looks like we finally have some action coming up.  If someone lands a solid hit on Feofan or breaks one of his toys, would that count for the sabotage roll?

Well, come on folks, the action is here, but no one is using it. With Josasa not seeming to make any actions, someone could come along and conveniently "save" his character...

Now this one. This one hurt me in a soft spot. I really had hopes for this system and we couldn't even keep together long enough to test it out.

As opposed to the previous post, I think this is us at our worst. We had a clear mission and couldn't complete it. Anyone think it worthwhile to maybe try testing this system again? We put a lot of our time into making it to not test it out.
