In the near future, space exploration took a sudden jump in activity as precious resources were found via drones in the far reaches of our galaxy. These resources were filled with energy, and if harnessed it would be able to power most continents for a year with just a tiny fragment of the resource the first scientist who went out to acquire said resource did not come back. Their ancestors did though, since the journey was very, very long. To ease the lives of all peoples, these men and women who brought back the resources put all their time and effort into creating Jump Gates, devices that would connect different galaxies in a matter of days, rather then centuries. There was one catch though. The jump gates couldn't be used to jump anywhere. They needed another gate as an exit.

Because of this requirement, the Jump Gates became symbols of power and also they became almost a life line for the colonies who were extremely far away from the Sol System. These colonies depend on the Jump gates for all imports and exports too both keep their colony alive and support it's economy. It's vital that these stations stay online.

Off the edge of Mars is the main Gate Hub that links the Sol System to the rest of the universe. There are seven Gateways, all facing a different direction away from Earth and The United Earth Government, which is for all intents and purposes an Empire, minus the imperial titles. One of these stations, number 07, has gone offline, most likely due to communication errors. The UEG doesn't want their "empire" to be in an uproar of this event and are claiming that Jump Gate 07 is under repairs. Since they don't want this event to ever be noted down on paper, they are sending a team of Mercenaries to go and asses the situation.

This team will need engineers to potentially repair any damaged equipment on-board the station. There will also be a requirement for some defense forces because for all they know this could become a military operation, due to the fact that there has been some small uprisings from a couple of the colonies that branch off of JG 07. It's assumed, but there is no hard proof. The UEG is also granting use of a couple new experimental combat suits, since they are able to lift more, carry more and fit n more spaces, plus they can be used in space, unlike a tank. Therefore, a couple of Pilots will be needed to use these machines.

App Explications:
Required
Nation Name: Obvious
Name: Obvious
Age: Obvious. However, you have the ability to RP as teenager if you so desire.
Gender: Obvious, but if you want a transgender person, just state it here.
Appearance: Obvious, but I would prefer an anime picture, since that's what this is inspired by.
Class: You can pick one of three:
-Pilot
This allows you to have a mech. A small mech so that you can bring it into the station, but a mech nonetheless. Here are some examples. In turn, your character should be a bit younger and smaller then the majority of the other players so that you can fit into the mech. You'll also put a link to your mech in this slot or a discription.
-Guard
Obvious. This is the one where you will have the big guns and be liberating some fools, if there is anyone too liberate. You'll say what weapons you have here. Don't go overboard, and remember, you're inside of a metal tin in space. Your bullets will pierce the walls, so choose wisely. You're also the team's medic, and you'll need to carry some medical supplies as well, be them for yourself or for the team.
-Engineer
This one is the meat of the operation. There might be locked doors or broken systems that need to be fixed such as a lack of oxygen. You might need to fix that so that the rest of your team can survive. You can still have weapons, but you need to have a lighter armament. You have tools and stuff to carry too. You will state those things here as well.
Short Bio: Just a little bit. No more then a paragraph.
RP Sample: Only If I don't know you. It helps me get a feel for who you are and how you will post.

Optional
Theme Song: Obvious, yet it should give off the same vibe that you want others feel, on like a neuro-meta-physical level.
Additional Backstory: Here you put One Shots and other side story things if you want. You can also put parts of your bio that are longer then one paragraph.


Example App/My App:
Nation Name: Vancon

Nation Name: Kingdom of Korva
Name: Banana
Age: 27
Gender: Male
Appearance: Yippee!

Short Bio: No one who has ever met Banana can forget him. He was a boy like any other until a tragic artificial gravity accident aboard an interstellar transport killed his parents. This event, aboard the SS Banana Boat kill all the passengers except for him, he was found inside a crumpled escape pod. The incident left his growth permanently stunted. As a consequence he has the stature of a small child, while retaining preternatural strength. Making the most of the situation, Banana found employ as an engineer, easily capable of climbing into the smallest of openings to fix hard to reach machinery. His inclusion with this particular engineering team has been spurred by his looming gambling debts.
RP Sample: You know me :P


Nation Name: Congreveopia
Name: Johnson Shaw
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Appearance: Link
Class: Engineer. He doesn't have any weapons, but he does have his robot "Chirpy" that follows him around (and Chirpy has a weapon or two).
Short Bio: He was very interested in computer programing and AIs in particular. He worked for the government for a bit developing military AIs, and then jumped at a chance to see the galaxy, taking a job helping test and analyze AIs in the outer worlds. He hasn't really had a chance to make many friends because he keeps getting sent from world to world, so he built and programed his helper robot "Chirpy" who is now his closest friend. He is very skilled in working with in computers, and AIs in particular.
RP Sample: I have this vague recollection of you...


Nation Name: URA
Name: Galia Rothar
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Appearance: Image
Class: Guard - Medic
Short Bio: Galia grew up on a backwater planet out past the 7th Jump Gate on a small colony known as Seranos. Galia always dreamed of getting offworld and going to Earth. Well, when she graduated basic school she got her wish; A free ride to a premier medical school on Earth. 5 years later and Galia is now out on her own, on a "internship" program where she's finding money to pay for her schoolwork while also learning her trade in the field. Sadly, her field turned out to be for-hire interstellar medical work. Her first mission in this job: Going with a repair crew to fix the broken Jump Gate that's apparently cut off communications to all the worlds in that sector of space, including her family on her homeworld of Seranos.
RP Sample: Do I have to, Van?


Nation Name: Utceforp
Name: Dr. Susan Lupov/Diogenes
Age: 25
Gender: Female (Diogenes is male, though, as far as an AI can be male.)
Appearance: Susan, her mech.
Class: Pilot
Short Bio: Susan was born on an O'Neill cylinder orbiting Sirius A and Sirius B, that studied the binary star system and monitored the Dyson Swarm that also orbited the two stars. The majority of the cylinder's population were scientists or intellectuals of some sort, including Susan's mother and father, a roboticist and a mathematician, respectively. She followed in her father's footsteps and focused on the mathematics behind jump-gates, which she wrote her dissertation on. In order to add both the practical and theoretical areas of her work with the jump-gates, she spent more than a little money on cybernetic augmentation. Susan's arms, eyes and the majority of her musculoskeletal system have been replaced by machinery, to aid in surviving in the more hostile regions of the cosmos that she would need to visit in her work, and an AI named Diogenes has been created to act as a companion/number-crunching device/split personality for her to help with the actual scientific portion of her work. Diogenes was created as part of a line of AIs designed to aid researchers and scientists in their work by alleviating some of the work and acting as a "second opinion" on difficult problems. Highly eccentric, insular and philosophical, he is almost the complete opposite of the outspoken and logic-minded Susan, but for years they have been close friends. Due to her need to physically access the jump-gates, her small size and her ability to interface with electronics using Diogenes, Susan has been given a mech to use for the repair mission.

Nation Name: Raktio
Name: Selena Longstreet
Age: 19
Gender: Female
Appearance: She's only four foot eleven
http://media.desura.com/cache/images/me ... rl_011.jpg
Class: Pilot, it's only 1/2 to 2/3 the demonstrated size.

She eventually did improve who she was friends with but still annoyed by the restrictions set by her father went ahead and became a freelance mecha pilot mercenary.
RP Sample: MTG rpg (I've also played with Luxa, Utforp and I'm pretty sure URA as well before).


Nation Name: G-Tech Corporation
Name: Jarnassus Rivatta
Age: 23
Gender: Male
Appearance: Eh, cyborg anime is rare.
Class: Guard
Short Bio: A former soldier of the UEG from a system far down 002, Jarnassus is far more machine than man, the product of militarization within the colonized system on the part of the local UEG governate. Born to one of the wealthy industrialist families of Saarlund, second world of the star Ceris, Jarn was originally destined for nothing more than a life of leisure in the lap of luxury, which he spent in private invention and innovation, until the uprisings began. Workers in the vast smeltery-forges and stellar-lifters in orbit around Ceris began an armed revolt against the UEG, seeking liberty or death, or some such nonsense. When Jarn's battalion of the Homeward was called up his family ensured a posting far from the action on a stable lifter- this worked out great, until the rebels turned one of their suborned lifters on his station. Magnetic flux compactors meant to handle the mass of a star tore the metal monolith to shreds, killing almost every man from Jarn's unit, and leaving him a hollow shell of humanity that only survived in an escape pod for over three weeks in a state of pain-dulled stasis. Though one arm and his torso survived, even his skull was fractured beyond the ability of medical technology to repair, leaving Jarn little more than a bit of flesh for the butcher's block. Following maneuvering by his parents, the youth was installed in an experimental cybernetic synthcog frame, which he has adapted and modified to his own design with a host of innovations. A rabid reactionary due to his experiences, Jarn took on this expedition despite his wealth and respect in the community in a desire to prevent any more revolutions, and any more destroyed survivors.
RP Sample: Excessively colorful, but hey.


Nation Name: The Templar High Council. AKA Temp.
Name: Soren Smith.
Age: 19.
Gender: Male.
Appearance: Soren
Mech
Class: Pilot.
Short Bio: Soren used to be a punk kid hacker back in "normal society." He did it all for fun, and it was. Until the authorities finally caught him. At that point, he forfeited his normal teenage years to serve a short stint in juvy, where he learned to fight and survive. After he got out, he realized he loved to fight, and joined up with a group of like-minded individuals who thought like he did: anything could be done to complete the goal. Thanks to his technical training and engineering know-how, the mercenary group (known as Mercy29) provided him with a mech suit, which Soren turned into a formidable fighting force.
RP Sample: In Signature.


Nation Name: Krytonus
Name: Rory O'Dwyer/P.A.T.R.I.C.K (Personal Artificial Task Resolving Intelligence Contained in Kilobytes)
Age: 22/2
Gender: Male/Designated Male
Appearance: Average height with a skinny build. He has messy, unkempt but clean dark brown hair, with brown eyes. He has high cheekbones and constantly wears a grin. He could be considered handsome, but he's no heart-throb.

Mech: http://th05.deviantart.net/fs71/PRE/f/2010/290/7/e/grey_mech_by_rawwad-d30xbn7.jpg (In black with green lighting)

PATRICK: http://d2tq98mqfjyz2l.cloudfront.net/image_cache/1390458533439198_tall.jpg This, just green.
Class: Pilot/N/A
Short Bio: Rory was born Dublin, Ireland. As he progressed through school, he built his first mech. Then his second. Then, his third and... You get the idea. He graduated College with a degree in Robotics and Advanced Mechanics. He was quickly hired by the Zendrati Corporation and worked designing mechs for a time until he was hired to help investigate the Gate. He brought his favourite mech, "Caomhnoir" or "Guardian" in English, as well as his assistant AI/droid P.A.T.R.I.C.K. PATRICK was created to function as an assistant to Rory in design and research, as well as heavy lifting and defence. His consciousness is not bound to the bulky robot and can be transferred via USB to other devices. However, he cannot do this alone due to AI laws. Also contained in the Robotic body is a small hovering orb-like robot used for scouting ahead and getting into small places. PATRICK is armed with tasers and tranquilisers, but no lethal weapons. He has always been a loyal and well-functioning AI, never causing Rory trouble. So, let's hope nothing goes wrong.
RP Sample: It was always so easy on Piccadilly.

Too many people, those of a high class and an even higher ego. Those that paid attention to the boy entering the jewellers averted their gaze. One of such a low class was surely not worthy of their awknowledgements. They assumed he was a servant, or perhaps a beggar. His vague Irish accent only added to their assumptions. He pushed through the crowds, some recoiling at his touch and he walked up to the Jewellers. Flashing a grin, he pushed through the doors into the store.

There were a few people in here, one group of ladies cooing over the shining jewels, and two gentlemen stood pondering what to get their wives. Another man browsed cuff-links, and there were two clerks at the desk and one standing ready to assist buyers. Rory received some odd looks as he entered, but the prying eyes quickly returned to the jewellery. He strolled the length of the shop and stopped at a large case at the back, bolted with a heavy lock. He quickly checked over his shoulder. Nobody paid him much attention. Even the clerks were above him. He turned his head back and focused on the lock, brow furrowing in concentration, hands slightly outstretched towards the brass lock. It began shaking slightly, straining in the invisible field of influence. It began violently vibrating until a sharp crack rang out and the lock split in two. A clerk shouted out, and another strode towards the cloaked boy. He tore open the case's door and the clerk shouted out again. Now people were paying attention to him. Quickly he began lining his pockets, turning and boxing the clerk in the nose when he got in range. The man shouted out and clutched his nose, blood pouring out. The other clerks ran towards him. He grabbed a last handful of jewellery and spun around, ducking as the second clerk swung a punch. A horrified scream rang out as his fist smashed into the glass, embedding itself into the poor guy's knuckle. Rory ran up and tackled the last clerk, increasing his weight as he hit him, winding him and giving a satisfying crack as the man's head smashed into the tile floor. The boy leapt up again and sprinted to the door. Nobody stopped him, and the gaggle of women screamed as he sprinted by. He burst through the doors and onto the street, almost crashing into one elderly gentleman who swore very ungentlemanly. Rory flashed a smile at the man and sprinted down the street.


Nation Name: Supercalifragilisticexpialidocius.
Name: Stefania Dumitru.
Age: 26.
Gender: Female.
Appearance: Something like this. She's approximately 5'3 and weighs just under one hundred pounds, and more often than not has her hair up in a pony tail.
This.
Class: Pilot.
Short Bio: More or less a psychotic drifter with little more than a mech and mountains of ammunition, Stefania does what she does for the fun of it, not for the money, or whatever else more reasonable people are interested in. She was born to a rather odd bandit family, a group of people who were essentially equatable to space gypsies with guns, her father raised her in and around mechs, and eventually inherited her father's when he died in a tragic accident that included bleach, matches, and a metric kiloliter of Space Moonshine. After his death, her family was hardly able to hold itself together, and three of her brothers (Of a total of twenty seven siblings; eighteen brothers and eight sisters, not including Stefania.) died under suspicious circumstances after they had tried to claim their father's mech before Stefania. After no one else wanted it, she took it, and simply disappeared from the scene, before arriving in service of the Benevolent Monarch.

Nation Name: Grenwhowhatsit?
Name: Phoenix "Ash" Bakula
Age: 25
Gender: Androgynous; sex is intersex, though only those who know them intimately would ever know that
Appearance: http://safebooru.org//images/826/483aff77ffa01cac2300a4337c7fc3fa05d6d06c.jpg
Class: Engineer, but has some weapons training, and carries a small assault rifle for self defense
Short Bio: Born on the world of New Louisiana (one of the first worlds discovered to be able to harbor human life, and consequently one of the first to be colonized) in [insert appropriate year here], near the settlement of New Kenner, Phoenix spent their childhood hanging around their father and older siblings, who worked in the family's boat and ATV store. It was there that they gained their passion for engineering, tinkering around with broken motors and generally experimenting with ways to build a machine which was equally suited to handling the area's hilly terrain as well as its bayous. Of course, they also had to learn to defend themselves, due to the vast array of animals which could and sometimes did kill people (only two of which being alligators and bears). By no means were they a sniper, but they were an excellent shot, and won a few local marksmanship competitions. However, those seem to be their only marketable skills, as their cooking is utter shit (much to the disappointment of their family, who pride themselves on their culinary abilities), and they are less than useless as a medic, though in a pinch, they can pilot a ship. At age 16, they got accepted to one of Earth's more prestigious universities, and graduated with a high-level degree in engineering a few years later. Shortly afterward, they were tapped to join this mission, due to their desireable credentials.

Nation Name:
Imperial City-States

Name:
Klaus Schweitzer (chosen )
HIC-001

Age:
N/A


Gender:
'Male'


Appearance:





Class:
Combat Android (Guard)

Carries a DR-91 Pulse Rifle , DR-40 Handgun , RG-31 Grenades , Android Combat Frame (internal ) , Semi-Powered Assault Armor (External ). Other equipment is available but is classified at this current moment in time.


Short Bio:

Originally the United Earth Government started the Genesis program as a method of creating infiltration units to make finding and destroying insurrectionist cells much easier and less resource intensive. While this was great in theory upon activating the Self-Aware artificial intelligence within the Android chassis the implementation of Human emotion was a dramatic shock to the machines which previously before the Genesis program had felt nothing. Of the Nine-hundred original Android Candidates only sixty survived the emotional stress , Many Androids confronted with the reality of what they had done in the past and what they would be forced to do in the future self-terminated. Those that remained did their job at infiltrating insurgency cells extremely well. As the years went on the older models wore out and eventually were phased out of duty , They were so successful however that the UEG decided to engage Genesis-II a program that no longer focused on infiltration bur rather on direct combat support for military units. "Klaus" is the first functional prototype who's been sent with the expedition to run a series of live action combat engagements and have his total abilities rated. He is faster and stronger than any human could ever hope to be and is capable of engaging medium sized mechs on equal strength , although this is not advised as his organic parts will likely destroy themselves from the strain. As the first of his kind Klaus is eager to prove he's a worthwhile investment and his mission orders require him to act and present himself as a Human rather than what he really is for testing purposes. What lies ahead on the road for him is unsure but what he does know is that killing is his business , and business will inevitably be good.

Additional Notes:

The High Intensity Combat Unit is programmed to use all issued UEF weapons with extreme proficiency and is capable of advanced battlefield medical operations if a member of it's squad is injured. It's high strength frame is made from a combination of Tungsten and titanium making it extremely durable while retaining full range of motion similar to that in a human by use of semi-organic parts in some areas of it's 'body'. In very basic terms , it could be considered the perfect Soldier from a Commander's point of view , if that is , The Self-Aware AI within wasn't a ticking time bomb of pent up emotion that the AI is unfamiliar with. It has often been compared that AI's and more specifically Androids while trying to deal with emotion are similar to Adolescents in the pubescent stages of their live's with extreme emotional changes and occasionally very irrational decisions based on trying to understand human emotion. Current testing is underway to incorporate two different AI's within the first prototype combat units that feature a 'mammal ' part of the synthetic cortex that is active during normal functions and lower level engagements and a 'reptilian ' part that is completely dedicated to combat , tactics , and other associated areas of aggression.

Age: 34
Gender: Male
Appearance:

Class: Engineer
(equipment to be added)
Short Bio: Though his education reared him to become an engineer, Jakub spent a fair part of his life as a soldier by necessity when he found himself involved in the violent uprising of Saarlund. As a member of the Engineering Corps, he was stationed at JG 02 and never meant to see action firsthand, but due to the volatile situation the combat engineer found himself staring down the barrel of his gun on several occasions, one of which led to the premature detonation of a desperate rebel and would have lead to the death of Sergeant Farreau if not for dedicated medical officer Brady, the man that kept what remained of Jakub alive long enough for a medivac.

Jakub woke up with more metal attached to his body than usual. It was the UEG that had given him a meaningless medal, but Phoenix Corporation lived up to their name when they ensured that he could serve again as a member of their staff. "Armed" with prosthetic limbs in tandem with structural augmentations (such as to his spine and neck), Jakub became one of Phoenix' liasons at the UEG, a combat engineer specializing in jump gates. As such, he was an obvious choice to send to JG 07 to protect but the UEG's and Phoenix Corporation's interests.

Appearance: http://fc08.deviantart.net/fs70/f/2012/228/a/3/sci_fi_soldier_turnaround_by_tk_1757-d5bct45.png
Class: Engineer
Short Bio: Engineer Torben was born on the vessel Olympus Mons near the moon of Inanna located down jump-gate 04. Both of Torbens parents were employees of Red Dawn Industries and prided themselves on this fact. His father was an engines specialist and his mother a mechanical engineer. Both would spend the majority of their time aboard ships of various classes ensuring that the ships operated by RDI ran smoothly. It was in this background of oil and outer space that Torben grew up in. Throughout his childhood and early teens Torben would assist and learn from his parents in their respective fields while getting the best education RDI could provide. At the age of 17, with the support of his parents, Torben would leave the nest and make his own foray into RDI as a junior mechanic maintaining shuttle pods on small cargo freighters. Working his way through the ranks he would be meritoriously promoted several times until he became chief engineer in little less than four years. At the age of 21 he would leave the company to attend the Valles Marineris School of Engineering and Mechanical Innovation in order to expand his horizons along with his marketability. He would during his time there earn an undergraduates and masters degree in both Mechanical/Electrical Engineering along with a minor in Advanced Robotics/Computing. Now at age 27 he has left the university and seeks to gain recognition and test his skills by being a contractor for hire. While not the most combatant of fellows he makes up for it in ingenuity and a large investment in body armor. He hopes that those several hours he put in on the gun range will be enough for him when the time comes.

Class: Guard, with an Auto 12 Pistol, MG 335-R LMG and wears a M232 semi-powered battle suit.

Short Bio: Standing at 1.86, Murphy grew up on Earth, in a bankrupt Detroit and in a family living on the poverty line. Everyday was a struggle just to survive, being the youngest in the family, and Murphy was always seen as the "Milk Cow" for school bullies. Growing up was never an easy feat, with 6 siblings and a cramped apartment with a tough mother and an ever-drunk father, Murphy grew up as an extroverted boy. All was fine and dandy (for his terms) until his entire family was murdered by Bandits after moving to a colony in Mars; after an incident with loan-sharks where his father refused to pay back his debts. Murphy, at 19, never knew why he was spared, perhaps to add more to the suffering or maybe because they didn't see him as much of a threat. And then a grunt and darkness.

After a King Hit to the back, Murphy was left for dead. For over a year he was in a coma, and when he did wake up his condition was as bad as he was a year ago. One thing was certain, however, and that was that he certainly had lost his right arm; which was replaced by a prosthetic limb funded by Upsilon Incorporated. The doctor brought the grave news forward that Murphy's arm had, in fact, been severed from the shoulder down by a blunt weapon, causing intense trauma which led to his coma. With no home, sibling or parents to rely on, Murphy found adult life almost unbearable and was on the brink of Suicide.

Searching odd-jobs all over the colony for much of his adult life, he finally got word of a stable job that would take him to Jump-gate 7. Distraught and with nothing to do, he signed up for the mission to Jump-gate 7, seeking a fortune and to find out who was responsible for the death of everyone he cared about. Due to his 'complications' with his arm and back, Upsilon Incorporated has provided him with an experimental Battle Suit.

Nation Name: Bone Fort

Age: ?
Gender: Presumed male.
Appearance: This. Helmet has face painted on.
Class: Guard
Short Bio: Terrorist. Pirate. Mercenary. All words used to describe members of the controversial PMC known as Desperado LLC., all accusations of which are not true, or at least none of which could be proven... except the mercenary bit, that's right on the money. A... shady organization of dubious intent and surprisingly small size (relatively speaking), its agents are, without exception, both heavily augmented cyborgs and exceedingly eccentric individuals. It is strange that an infamous group such as them is allowed to operate so openly, but as mentioned before, no one can prove anything. Rumor speaks that it is not without reason that those in power allow them to exist, for it is said that the Desperados know where the bodies are hidden; after all, they buried them. Such rumors are still rumors, however, and should be taken with a grain of salt; I mean, seriously, some are just straight out crazy, such as claims that the Desperados sleep hanging upside down, like a bat, or that they always eat facing magnetic north. Really, that's just crazy talk.

At any rate, what is known is that Desperado LLC. has sent one of its agents to aid the Jump Gate 07 Expedition, and that the enigmatic character called "Alp" is a cyborg and most definitely eccentric.

Under Constant Construction

Almanac of Adversaries
-Colonist Soldiers
Rebel Soldiers hailing from a colony along the seventh gate, these soldiers have varied equipment, anything from high quality Military Grade weaponry to ranch rifles. This would be stuff that they got from raiding local UEG outposts.

-Colonist Mechs
Fast, heavily armed and brutal, these things will tear though most power armor that they encounter, but fall to the problems that most early mechs fall to: very, very, weak armor.

-Colonist Leaders
Jaques De la court, a humble man of simple tastes, has risen to power in a military alliance between a handful of colonies of of branch seven, ie the colonies that are connected by Jump Gate Seven.

Enter Jaques wrote:Jaques De la court was lanky in all regards, and had a large, black overcoat on like those of his ancestors. The mask that covered his face only covered the bottom half, since it was really nothing more then a handkerchief tied around his head and neck. His long hair was braided and formed a kind of blond tail that came out of his head. His blue eye sparkled against the dark inside of the ship, almost hopelessly along with his frown that really summed up the vibe aboard the station. He only had his right eye now. The other fell to a wound back on Venus before he left a previous life of war to become a simple farmer in Seranos. This peace was short lived, and soon he raised his own forces to take back some space around his new home.


As both a detriment and saving grace to his leadership, he is a tad bit insane due to his time spent on Venus as he was on a patrol on the surface of the planet. Here he lost his helmet in a firefight against local government forces who were trying to kill Jaques due to his increasing influence on the other soldiers. The hallucinogenic gases of the planet that were caused by the constant attempts of terraforming Venus got inside his brain and now cause him to have major hallucinogenic episodes and also a brutal mindset compared to how he acted previously.



History/Information About Society
UEG-United Earth Government
-A Democracy in name, but an Empire in reality, the UEG is a NATO-esque force that controls almost all of the nations in the world, mins a few radicals here and there. Their vision is to create a utopia for all those who can afford it, by any means necessary.

Legion
At the dawn of Humanities new golden age, an age brought about by the gates, the people of the Earth united as one to create a charter for a new organization to represent the entirety of Humanity. This organization was the UEG, and yet, while still an idealistic group, it was seen that the gates which were to be the source and origin of all power in the galaxy for the fledgling Human empire, it was obvious that some would rise up and threaten that power out of want and greed and selfish desire. This lead to the formation of the Rings of Unity, the militarized groups within the UEG each responsible for a different level of civil and social security from the other, but all unified under the belief that UEG holds the key to Humanity's future. It was out of the Ninth Ring, the Strategic World Observation and Recovery Department (SWORD), came a group of elite custodians, designed with the pure intention of being used as guardians of these gates. This group was named Legion.

However, their emblem, a silver sword upon two wings signifies their origins within the 9th Ring. The operatives themselves are suspect of being about 20 or so years of age on average, but have likely been around for much longer than that, their aging process almost indefinitely halted due to intensive amounts of time spent in cryo-stasis. Their abilities are not fully known nor classified, however they have been confirmed as having an ability to operate without the usage of their sense of hearing, sight, and/or smell due to extreme sensory deprivation training which potentially conditions them for unknown environments not yet well-known to the Human Race. They also are rumored to be skilled hand-to-hand combatants, though some also are known to pilot mechs for larger scale confrontations. Recent conflict on the rings has also lead to multiple members of Legion being marked as KIA and likewise a new recruiting drive into the largely exclusive organization has begun as of recent years.

Rumored devices are cloaking shields, capable of simultaneously protecting and shielding the user from external observation. Gravitational sensors however have been registered as becoming incredibly disfunctional when this occurs as well as massive energy surges that flood through all nearby light-electronics. Another said device is a Mass Acceleration Override, capable of allowing the mech to bypass typical safety restraints when moving to achieve dangerous speeds. Overheating of the main systems as well as reported critical hydraulic failures have been recorded as having occurred within fifteen seconds of MAO Activation.

Colonies
-Under Construction

Faster Then Light (FTL) Travel
A good metaphor for the gate is a 3D printer (and, I suppose a 3d disassembler sending plastic to the 3D printer). If you have a 3D printer and disassembler that both work at the same speed, them they will work fine, but if the disassembler goes faster than the printer, the printer won't be able to lay plastic as fast as the disassembler sends it. If the printer works faster than the disassembler, then it will keep running out of plastic while waiting for the disassembler to send it, so the system moves at the speed of the slower component. So a big ship can travel through a smaller gate (smaller in terms of speed assembling and disassembling), it just takes a long time.
3D printers (and Jump Gates) have another limitation, though: the size of the build area (the gate's size). If your disassembler is disassembling something a foot wide, but the printer can only print something three inches wide, then you're going to have problems. Likewise, if you send a ship say... 100 meters wide into a large gate (say... 110 meters wide), but the gate that the large gate links to is a small gate (say... 60 meters wide) then something very bad will happen to the ship.
So yes, the limiting factors would be gate speed and gate size. If you have a gate with low speed but high size, then you can send a large ship through it (it'll just take a while), but if you have a gate with high speed and low size, you can't send a large ship through it no matter how much time you take.
-Cong


Datagates-(FTL Comms)
Here are the limiting factors in FTL systems:
-Distance transmitting
-Size of object transmitted
-Complexity of transmittable objects

That means that making a system capable of sending things that are larger, more complex, or travel further will require more power, space, or money.

Here’s how FTL coms typically work:

Originally, FTL communication was done by transmitting electrons between “datawarp-gates” nowadays, this method is considered extremely inefficient, and instead five different subatomic particles have been chosen that are easy to transmit. Data is transmitted in a quinary format (base 5), using these subatomic particles as 1,2,3,4, and 5.

Here are the main systems in place for transmitting data FTL:

Jump Gates:
These are the big ones. The massive effort needed to move a ship through a gate makes everything else pale in comparison. The gates can easily transmit vast amounts of data, and humanity has yet to demand fast enough data-transfer for these to ever be a bottleneck.


HubSats:
These are about the size of the ISS, and are typically only found in the inner worlds (nearer Earth on the jump gate network. In the fringes the link is straight from the Jump Gate to the Groundside gate, or on the very outer worlds, you might only have the jump gate). They are government run, and are typically found in the L2 points behind planets (to minimise the star’s interference). They are act as a relay between the jump gates and facilities on the planet, and can send data directly to other HubSats (skipping the delay from the data being passed through multiple jump gates) for a price. This is where most of the delay in your connection will come from, as your data provider is bidding for priority with everyone else who wants to use the HubSat. You get what you pay for.


Groundside Gates:
These are typically privately run by companies like modern cell service providers. They are typically the end of the FTL chain for most messages receiving them from the HubSat, and then sending them to the user via regular radio, and are also the only part of the system that will charge directly during normal usage. (HubSats and Jump Gates are tax-funded).


Private Datagates:
These are high-end. Typically only purchased by companies that need to move a lot of data fast, they are occasionally bought by rich individuals who want to experience almost no delay whatsoever when watching something from the other side of the galaxy. The smallest model is the nanolink datagate, currently sold by Zentradi Foundation for about the cost of a high-end spaceship. It is the size of a box of cards, and can directly link from a planetary surface to the HubSat in orbit.


Spaceship Datagates:
The UEG officially mandates that all interplanetary craft carry a datagate and stay within range of a HubSat at all times in case traffic control needs to deliver important alerts. These are typically very low-speed except in high-end craft where they are used to stream data rather than just receive alerts. Special licences are granted to craft like East-Earth spacecraft that plan to leave HubSat range for prolonged periods of time.


“Pingers”:
Research is being conducted with the goal of discovering a method by which one can transmit data across the interspace between gates without a dedicated receiver. Dubbed “pingers” it is doubtful if these devices will work, but if they do, it will be like the invention of radio compared to the telegraph, allowing communication without the need to set up a prearranged link. There has been some backlash by a few theorists who claim that these tests may fundamentally alter the nature of interspace, and render humanity unable to use it for travel. These worries are mostly disregarded on the basis of lack of proof.

Business Corporations
-Zentradi Foundation, a kind of militaristic mega corporation that specialises in weaponry.
The rising costs of defense research and development led to the consolidation of companies in the industry. In 20th century there were literally dozens of companies and corporations competing for defense contracts in every field. Consolidation, intended to counter rising costs, gradually whittled this number down. By the beginning of the 21st century, there were roughly a half dozen major contenders in the defense industry.

This process only accelerated with time as inexorable march of progress drove costs ever higher. Massive corporations, such as the Zentradi Foundation, emerged from these circumstances. Chains of partners, subsidiaries, umbrella corporations, and more were all a part of Zentradi. Zentradi, and its partners, manufactured everything from firearms to vaccines to automobiles.

Zentradi directly employs millions, but millions more rely on its products and services. This has given the corporation far ranging control over society, control which is not always benevolent nor beneficial.

Perhaps it was inevitable then that the Zentradi Foundation would use its considerable economic might to pressure, bribe, threaten, and kill its way to the top, after all: money is the root of all evil.

-Black Hand Syndicate, an intergalactic business syndicate, which acts as a money laundering front for a criminal syndicate of the same name.
REDACTED

-UMC (United Martian Colonies), a union of the assorted martian colonies. A true democracy with a view for peace and freedom.
REDACTED

-Red Dawn Industries, the Zentradi Foundation's largest competitor. Similar in concept and execution.
Excerpt from a Red Dawn Industries publicity campaign, with notes from renown antitrust organisation [REDACTED]:

Red Dawn Industries: Never Break Down.



From our earliest days as a simple heavy machinery manufacturer on Earth, we have never lost sight of our goals. Red Dawn Industries exists only for one reason, to provide you with equipment that will endure. Equipment that you can rely on, when all else has failed.

Quality is at the heart of Red Dawn Industries. Even in our first years, we were recognised as leaders in quality. [Note: It is suspicious the absence of reports in Red Dawn’s Industry during this time. There have been several noteworthy studies debating the authenticity of Red Dawn’s sentiment here, but many have either come from a company closely tied with Red Dawn, or have referenced data that was created by such a company. Red Dawn has denied any accusations of modifying the Data Archives from this time.] It wasn’t until almost two decades later, however, that we came into our own.

Image
Midlands Prime: The First Permanent Martian Base, was built with Red Dawn equipment.


Terriforming Mars was not an easy project. Humanity had never attempted anything close to this difficulty before, yet we took it upon ourselves to change the very nature of an entire world. Red Dawn Industries fought on the front line of this battle, and we demonstrated the quality of our products across two worlds. When other equipment failed, you could always rely on Red Dawn. This dedication to over engineering was what allowed Red Dawn to become the primary government terraforming contractor in the following decades. [Note: It has been speculated that Red Dawn is entirely falsifying reports of their product's effectiveness in this paragraph. After the discovery eight years ago of Red Dawn’s under-the-table deals with the Government Archive Administration around this time, almost all data pertaining to Red Dawn products and their competitors during the First Terraforming era is suspect.]

Image
Sunrise over Inanna in the Harada System, photographed by the Red Dawn ship Angel of Alnair.


From there, Red Dawn marched proudly into the Jump Gate Era, providing quality gear to the government to keep the peace, and ensure the safety of outlying worlds.[Note: Red Dawn completely skips thirty of the most noteworthy years of their history here. During that time they successfully played their extensive government contacts to steal patents from developing companies and used these and other illegal practices to virtually eliminate almost all competition except Zentradi Foundation (which it is suspected they had some sort of deal with). It was not until [REDACTED] made a complete documentary of this process, which had gone on for 27 years that the public took note. The following legal action was mostly unreported or nonexistent, and the public really only has the government’s word that Red Dawn Industries was at all punished for this. [REDACTED] got into a mysterious legal debate with a company affiliated with Red Dawn Industries over libel one year later, and despite clearly being in the right, was forced to shut down from the cost of the ongoing legal battle. Evidently this did hurt Red Dawn Industries, however. Even if they tried to hide it, proof enough exists in the ad campaign done by Zentradi Foundation shortly after the documentary was made available to the public, openly against Red Dawn Industries. Zentradi Foundation probably breathed a sigh of relief that Red Dawn took the fall and not them, and quickly cut ties with the tainted organisation.]

Now, Red Dawn Industries proudly stands strong as one of the forerunners in terms of quality, utility, and affordability in our industry. As we stand on the cusp of a New Era, we refresh our memory of our original goal, our unerring resolution to make products that will fail for nothing.

Red Dawn Industries: Never Break Down.

-East-Earth Company, a band of explorers who normally put the Gates into place, by means of AI and cryostasis pods.

-----East Earth-----


Based out of a massive private bunker complex that was at one time known as the Himalayans the East Earth Company is one of the few enterprises that hold any real clot in the UEG. Founded by the survivors of the Trans-eurasia conflict who profited off, and more importantly survived, the war. East Earth used their wealth to help restablize the region and prop up many governments friend to their interests. As time went on the Company slowly lost their continental influence as the United Earth Government rose.

In recent centuries the group has begun sponsoring groups of eccentric travelers bring them wealth and artifacts of various kinds. For a long time these remained on earth as Saudi princes and heirs of the Tsan-Chan Empire plundered tombs and crypts in search of strange objects. Eventually the Company turned its gaze to the stars and with its little remaining influence over world politics convinced the United Earth Government to fund it. It was with this global funding that the corporation was able to build the jump gates, although their claims of being their designers are hotly refuted.

Today the East Earth Company runs and maintains many of the jump gates while getting money from various planetary governments to build more. Current plans are to build two in the Cancer and Libra constellation. It still funds exploration groups that seek out far away planets that it plans to sell to the UEG, or that seek out the strange deserted cyclopean ruins found on some plants like Xoth and Yuggoth in hopes of locating alien life.

-Upsilon Incorporated, a cyber tech foundation created in the outer colonies, for the outer colonies.
Upsilon Incorporated


Upsilon Incorporated started with a dream and a vision. The dream was to become a powerhouse technology outfit that rivaled the size of Zentradi. The vision was to be the exact opposite of Zentradi in practice. A powerful corporation that didn't have a dark underbelly. Both the dream and the vision failed.

Cut to the present. Upsilon is a small, underdog tech firm in the outskirts of UEG territory, with their headquarters based on Seranos, out past the 7th Gate. Upsilon still hasn't reached a fraction of the size, power, or sway that Red Dawn or Zentradi has achieved. Also, Upsilon has learned that cutting some throats has to be the way of things in order for a corporation to survive. However, Upsilon has done something the large corporations never have: Upsilon cares about the colonists. In the big Sol-based corporations, all colonists out past the Gates are work slaves in their eyes. Upsilon stays firmly on a small scale and offers much better benefits to colonials while going so far as to start guerilla warfare to destroy and physical ventures by the corporate giants out into the farther reaches of the Gates. Upsilon is the prime suspect behind the growing discourse with the protests and rebellions beyond the 7th Gate and really everywhere in the colonies.

While Upsilon Incorporated may never have the ability to mass-produce vast quantities of material, they can provide a small, but technologically equal, or even superior in some cases, arsenal of weapons and a small fleet of ships who they sell to clients with "philosophically similar goals." A more acceptable term for selling to buyers who say "fuck Earth."

-Phoenix Corporation, n pioneer in Gate technology, they lead the industry in both the creation and efficiency of Gate Construction.
Phoenix Corporation

Excellence Through Innovation


We at Phoenix are proud to announce the coronation of our inaugural attempt at an intergalactic hyper link, or a Jump Gate in layman's terms, to full retail production. Now, through the use of a rare atomic composition found solely in the far reaches of the galaxy, we have created a device that can send anything through to another point in time and space. It's the first of it's kind, and now it has been cleared for human transportation. Since the dawn of man we've wanted to go faster, with the usage of horses, cars and jets. Leap forward a couple centuries, and now we are faster then ever before. We can now get you and your relations anywhere in the galaxy, as long as another Gate exists already.


Image



Here we can see the concept of what these gates shall become, at the every least. Powered by a source of unimaginable power, these machines will stay at the farthest reaches of space so that we can go and explore more of our beautiful universe. Through our research we've found all sorts of things that the general populace will find moving and inspiring, such as a plethora of new planets ripe with untapped resources and vast quantities of land, all ready to be harvested and colonized.



Image



We'll need people to colonize these planets, so come on down to your local Phoenix Corporation or Phoenix Corporation Subsidiary to drop off an application as to why you should be able to visit and explore wondrous new planets, at no cost! We will be only looking for volunteers for a short period of time, so come on down as soon as you can!

-You've most likely RPed before, so I'm gonna assume you know what not to do.



Posting
In most RPs, you can't dictate the actions of NPCs. Here, not so much. Certain NPCs, such as enemies, can be controlled by the writer, within reason. Don't godmod, but if you fire your weapon and there's a bunch of bad-guys, you can say that your bullets hit a couple of them in the head or legs or something. This will give you something to do. HOWEVER, I'll say when you can do so before you do that in an OOC post.

Yes, please!
Where must we go, we who wander this wasteland, in search for our better selves?
In Egypt's sandy silence, all alone,
Stands a gigantic Leg, which far off throws
The only shadow that the Desert knows:—
"I am great OZYMANDIAS," saith the stone,
"The King of Kings; this mighty City shows
"The wonders of my hand." The City's gone,
Nought but the Leg remaining to disclose
The site of this forgotten Babylon.

We wonder, and some Hunter may express
Wonder like ours, when thro' the wilderness
Where London stood, holding the Wolf in chace,
He meets some fragment huge, and stops to guess
What powerful but unrecorded race
Once dwelt in that annihilated place.

You can has Co-OP, as long as you don't spawn any diamond blocks or gold blocks. Lapis is cool though. But one slight problem. This is very, very far from Mine Craft. But I digress.

Not players, but time. Most of the good RPs that I've been in have waited a bit until everyone was good and ready. I would like a couple more people, since It won't really be possible to add more people to the fray once we begin.
