A New World: The Journey RP Planning Thread.
« on: September 17, 2007, 09:04:49 am »
Hello. This RP is set in the future. 50 years in the future to be exact. Humanity is taking a giant leap forward by going to Ymir, or Gliese 581c, mostly for research, mostly for expansion.
Info
Plans for colonization began in 2019, when robots were designed and created specifically for this expansion. They left Earth 2025, and sent back a signal in 2050. 7 years later, and the colony ship Armstrong is taking all comers to it. It is probably the most secure place off Earth.
The UNSS Armstrong has the Command Deck, where the bridge and officer's quater's; the Military Deck, with bunks, stores and messes; the City Deck, with shops and resturants; the Suburban deck, or civvy quaters; the Server, where all the computer stuff is stored; the Engine room, where the stuff that keep the ship going is stored; the Farming deck, where the farmers amke new food, and oxygen; and the Docks, where the Pods, the way down to the planet, and Strike Shuttles, pumped up Shuttles, are stored.
Limitations
Really, only two major advances have been made in Earth Technology. First, Warp Drive. The warp drive projects a field that creates a multi-layered bubble of normal space around the ship inside which the ship is never exceeding C, even though the bubble is. The ship can still see and be seen by objects around it. It can still collide with physical objects in normal space. Then there is FTL digital technology, which uses Induced Corna Belts (don't ask, don't tell). Other than that, just use common sence, it's just 50 years in the future, and ask if you need clarification.
Characters
You can play one chararecter.
My character will be:
Name: Commander Wolfgang Rhein
Nationlity: German
Age: 50
Career: Commander of the UNSS Armstrong

You can add more information as you see fit. But above is the bar minimum. We'll start when we have enough. About half a million people are coming on this ship, so you can create a new character as you see fit, as long as you only have one.
EDIT 20.9.07
By Alwayswatching.
Hm, maybe there should be a few grades of people living on this ship.

Higher Employee - Probably obvious. These would be leadersand important people in the running of the ship.
Employee - There is a thin line between Employee and just a civilian with a job. An employee works directly for the good of the ship, while other workers simply have a normal job.
Honourary Citizen - Important people who were invited aboard.
Paying Citizen - Most of the ships population. People who payed A LOT of money to board the ship.

Hm, it sounded good up until you said we could have two main characters. That's chaos.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

The best person ever.  She should have won the Peace Prize.

What? No full control over children? You do realize that some of us have particular plans for those children.

Somebody needs a little kid.

A CREEPY little kid. There always needs to be a creepy little kid, wandering the ship, turing up in places seemingly impossible to appear in, things like that. ANd nobody knows why he's there, or who he is. He just kind of appears randomly, and at the most unexpected times.

I have a question, why don't they use cryo-storage instead of wasting the effort to make all that?

If you were the shipboard computer, you'd have to know basicly everything that's going on in the rp.

Why didn't Frodo and Sam just take eagles to Mordor? Beacuse it would be a lot less intresting story.

Is there AI?

Yes, although speaking to it, it's more like speaking to a brick wall. An intelligent one, but a wall none-the-less.
And it doesn't have control over life support, that's automated.

Also, everyone will get there own detached house, with their own car-like vehicle. And I'm going to add an extra deck, Farming.

Alos, there should be a general character limit. Don't go higher then roughly 12.
No way dude, you're trolling me.
