Halo: The Long Night (OOC/Signups)

Postby Just-An-Illusion » Sun Sep 12, 2021 8:07 pm

"In all of my years of fighting in the UNSC, I have never encountered a force like the Covenant. They're a ruthless army that's hellbent on our destruction, many of our colonies had been lost and glassed by the Covenant. With every battle, we lose millions of men... Even with the help from the Spartans our survival odds against the Covenant are very low. It won't be long until they destroy us all, but we need to hold the line for Earth and the rest of her colonies."-Unknown UNSC Marine.

Welcome everyone to Halo: The Long Night, where you will roleplay characters on both sides of the Human-Covenant War. The setting of this RP will take place during the early years of the Human-Covenant War, on the outer human colony planet called Pheron. A Covenant fleet has shown up to the colony in full force and it's up to UNSC forces on the planet to hold off the invasion. Since this is a character driven RP, we will be exploring the emotions and thoughts of soldiers fighting for both the UNSC and Covenant. Which means there will be two separate APPs for UNSC and Covenant characters. Do note you don't have to fill out both APPs to join the RP, in fact if you just want characters in the UNSC you may only fill out the UNSC character APP.

Now that we got introductions out of the way, let me show you the rules for this RP!

Rules

1. Do not be OP, it doesn't matter if you choose to become a Spartan. They have limits too when it comes to fighting the Covenant.

2. You cannot be the Master Chief.

3. Just so we don't have too many Spartans in this RP, I will only be accepting three Spartan APPs.

4. Do not kill another player's character unless given permission.

5. No one liners! I expect two pargaphs or more when we write in the IC.

6. Do not meta-game.

7. Do not control another player's character.

8. Do not break any of the lore to the Halo Universe

9. Use decent grammar and spelling.

10. You can only have two characters in this RP. You can either have two characters in the UNSC or two characters in the Covenant. Better yet you can also split them up.

11. Have fun!

Now that you know the rules let us move on to the character APPs!

Ooh boy, I can't wait to write and sign up! This is not a glorified tag post, I can assure you. :P

So regarding the lore and the world, ahh... What would you say is the demographics of humans, nationality-wise? Will it be out of place, if the guy I'm using has a SE Asian name?

Nah it wouldn't be out of place, I imagine the UNSC is very diverse in its military.

Cool, I got something in mind right now, hehe. But it'll probably have to wait after I'm done with work (after 7 hours... Bleh).

Am excited! :3

EDIT: I was aware that UNSC is diverse, but I asked just in case because in the actual game, Reach has a tad more Hungarians. :P

I mean, considering the UNSC would be a massive racial diaspora at this point, anything goes.

Oh yeah, tag. Thinking about doing an ODST officer or NCO character of some kind.

Name: Karol-013 (Formerly Karol Dutko)
Image

Age: 20
Gender: Male
Appearance:
    Standing at 7’4” fully armored, Karol rarely removes his armor. He is exceptionally muscular, as to be expected, while the man’s head is shaved bald. He possesses a square, lantern jaw with green eyes. Several scars are present across Karol’s body, notably a scattering of scars from shrapnel on his left arm, an Insurgent gift.
Rank: Petty Officer Second Class
Weapons:Biography:
    Born on Chi Ceti IV, Karol’s early life was unremarkable and has remained classified since his induction into the SPARTAN II Program. After his abduction, he endured the maelstrom that was the early years of training under Chief Mendez. Karol excelled in such things as mathematics, finding a knack in it as well as in physics, though at times struggled with such things as writing and reading in comparison to the other candidates. While his scores still exceeded those normally expected, nevertheless he felt as though he was lagging behind. On field exercises, Karol proved to be a natural in executing the plan, though far less adept at the conception of such plans. When 2525 came about, the bio-augmentation procedures began and he would be among those who survived. On September 11th, he would begin training with the Mjolnir suits in preparation for their first operation. Just a few days following, Karol and others would be deployed to the Eridanus system where he proved his worth crippling several fleeing Insurrectionist transports with well-placed shots from his Model 99.

    Karol would take part in several other operations in support of the growing Human-Covenant War, performing admirably with his Model 99 in most roles. In no less than three instances, high value targets among the Covenant would be eliminated with no more than Karol, an ODST drop pod, and his Model 99. ONI routinely kept him aboard a Prowler in support of their discrete operations, though deployments in support of Marine elements have not been unheard of. At some period, he was outfitted with a “dumb” AI, Baba. His most recent deployment to Phaeron has come by way of ONI Prowler insertion.

Name: "Sabot" Toee Winn Lin (တိုးဝင်းလင်း)

Age: 37

Gender: Male

Appearance: Stands around 6' 4" / 193.04 cm.
Image


Rank: 2nd Lieutenant.

Weapons:
- Modified M319 Individual Grenade Launcher that fires self-propelled payloads instead of a trajectory. Does slightly more damage compared to the original grenades, but has a louder whistle. Usually carries 11 grenades (1 in the launcher)
- 2 x M7/Caseless Submachine Gun as backups, with 2-3 backup magazines. Used mostly for suppressive fire.

Bio:

"ဒီ‌ဂြိုလ်သားငတုံးတွေကဘာလဲဟ။ ပါးစပ်က ဘုရားဘုရား လက်က ကားရားကားရားတွေ။" (What is up with these stupid aliens? Their mouths say God's prayers, as their hands do inappropriate things.)

Born to both Burmese parents on the planet of Pheron itself, Toee Winn Lin - as his name suggests, is not a very subtle man. His name in its entirety would mean that he likes to shove a little bit into the heat of things, whilst keeping his brilliance and clarity in check. His childhood on his home planet was somewhat normal - he went to school like everyone else, then furthering his studies with a degree in Engineering Physics, solely driven by his love for physics and on how bodies move under the influence of forces around. With his newly-obtained degree, he got himself a door to many opportunities around him, to which he picked up an internship with
Misriah Armory, much to the slight dismay of his parents. "They always told me not to get into the killing business and to be honest, I agree with them. Not much good in furthering weapons that would bring about peace one day, given our history. Still, I told myself back then, this was going to be temporary, and I reassured them that I would only look at the mechanics and physics of it without trying to get too involved." This went on for perhaps a year or two, with Winn Lin being getting himself familiar with the types of weapons and defensive systems that the Armory produced, among many other things. By the time his contract was nearly over, he was already considering a change in career as per his parents' wishes, whom were heading back to Earth in order to enjoy a retirement of their own. "I said to them that I will catch up with them someday, and to enjoy their retirement and all of that. I told myself that I will go back to Earth to enjoy some time with them. Even if I was going to work here for 5-10 years, there's always such a thing as vacation."

Fortunately for his parents, and unfortunately for him, Winn Lin found himself getting caught up in a brewing and escalating series of conflicts. One that involved the Covenant contacting the humans, along with the subsequent actions and consequences to follow. "Lucky for my mom and dad," he said to himself, as he headed to the nearest UNSC recruitment center that was more than happy to take him in. With luck, the conflict was supposed to resolve itself, and everything would have been back to normal. However, Winn Lin heard the news about the meeting that went south, along with the skirmish, and at that point, he knew that it was not going to be such a bright future ahead with the possibility of a war. "And that is why I am here," he said confidently, in the recruitment center with all of his belongings already packed up.

The next few months would have been a quick and grueling journey for Winn Lin, but he pushed on and was determined to get through this for his home planet. "Knowing these guys, I am not sure if they were going to stop at Pheron. If they go after Earth..." he trailed off during one of the sessions with his platoon mates, when upon being asked as to what he thought of the whole situation. He eventually finished basic and went onto further training as a commissioned officer, leading a few of his own men on both simulated and actual missions (after all, a Covenant fleet has showed up). The post-battle reports, along with the many eyewitnesses and peer evaluations, would show that Winn Lin was more or less able to keep his cool in the heat of the battle, even going out of his way to help those under his command, or any other stray squads and groups that he saw fit. At one moment during the war, he got grazed on the cheek by a plasma pistol shot, and as a result, the burns.

"Well, rule number one... try not to temper with your weapon systems too much. Chances are good that they have already been engineered by the manufacturers, and you know, never to modify them beyond specifications. But where is the fun in that, right? Which leads to rule number two... always be careful, and have a backup plan." Winn Lin would be referring to the fact that during his downtime in the weapons range, he and a few like-minded Marines have been tempering with a grenade launcher to accept non-standard rounds. Eventually, he got a somewhat working model of his weapon (after going through a chewing by his superiors), he got himself a nickname - Sabot.

"Loud and proud, and none of those alien fools are going to get anywhere near my friends as long as I am around."

Additional Info:
+ He is pretty good with demolitions and being loud, that much can be said. Almost always getting himself into an explosive situation.
+ His grenades never miss.
+ Will never leave his subordinates behind, preferring to cover their escape and extraction with his dual SMGs, which he honestly could not fire too well since he isn't a Spartan. But the suppressive fire is more than enough.
+ Somewhat of a good driver.

- His loudness can prove to be dangerous if a mission calls for stealth.
- When the going gets tough, he does not break and goes crazy, but he will lost sight of the bigger plan and will charge in to save/kill anything in particular.
- Absolutely not a good pilot. He himself admits that he only has two states - hovering, and crash-landing.
- A little lacking in the marksman department.

Name: Vora 'Kottin

Race: Sangheili

Gender: Male

Appearance: Standing at 8'3 and weighing, 370 pounds, Vora was on the bigger end when it comes to the average Sangheili. He had black skin with very visible muscles, just like many in the warrior race.

Rank: Stealth Sangheili (Rank)

Weapons: Two Energy Swords

Bio: Born on the Sangheili's homeworld of Sanghelios, to an aristocratic family, Vora, by birth, was allowed the use of the holy Energy Sword. From a young age, his father taught him how to use the Sangheili's sacred weapon, and in time, he proved to be very skilled at the weapon, swelling his confidence and pride so much that he began to practice dual wielding the blades, wishing to use both hands as weapons. His years of training allowed him to master the art of such fighting, and when the Covenant began its Holy War against the so called "Humans", he finally found a chance to prove his self in combat.

He joined the Covenant Armada and fought in numerous skirmishes and battles, typically preferring to outflank and outsmart his opponents. This, combined with his dual wielding capabilities, caused him to become a Stealth Sangheili, providing him more ways to fight in his preferred style. Now, once again, he will be thrust into battle, hoping to be pride and honor to both himself, and his family.

Name: Nemo

Age: 3 years old at the time of Phaeron's invasion

Gender: Identifies as a "Them"-attributed to their more widespread duty than their counterparts.

Appearance: Nemo's avatar pays an unconventional lack of focus on a "humanlike" form, retaining a vaguely humanoid shape that flickers between various states as it multitasks.

Rank: Planetary Security Intelligence

Weapons: Nemo has access to a repertoire of Unmanned vehicles, primarily ARGUS drones. Also possesses nasty EWAR capabilities if given control over a large enough facility. However, their real strength comes in the capacity to coordinate the various defenses of Pheron against an attack, rather than any inherent arsenal of their own.

Bio:

Nemo was created approximately three years ago to serve as Pheron's Planetary Security Intelligence. A quiet, reserved figure, Nemo has for the most part operated behind the scenes rather than in any sweeping maneuver. Although Pheron itself has had a relatively quiet history, Nemo has spent idle time simulating countless possible simulations for the defense of Pheron against various foes-Insurgents, a civil war, alien contacts both inferior, equal, and superior to humanity-all played out like a chess game.
With the terrifying coming to reality, with an equal, if not superior, force invading Pheron, Nemo has used their authority as PSI to try and push the planet onto a war footing to buy enough time for a civilian evacuation or further UNSC reinforcements. The arrival of the Spartan Karol-013, in particular, has shifted the equations for Pheron's survival. Although a single spartan might not achieve much, with the proper guidance and placement a lethal marksman can be a dangerously powerful asset.

What is the lore behind Pheron? Early human-covenant war would suggest I'm assuming it's an outer colony world, however what's the ORBAT looking like in terms of fleet makeup, and how populated the colony is and industrialized with cities versus a mostly terrain-based military world such as Reach or Harvest?

EDIT: Since I am returning from a hiatus from NS and don't know as I necessarily have the wherewithal to combat either a political RP, nation RP, or other theme, this is just the perfect RP to settle into. I would not be opposed to being a Co-Op if you require an additional moderator for the thread, and I have a fairly extensive knowledge of the Halo Universe seeing as back in grade school and my early high school years, I spent the majority of my time writing Halo lore-based fiction in the form of multiple short stories and a "book" you could call it, haha.

EDIT: Mentioned the OP says outer colony world, will peruse the opening post a bit more while I await a response, sorry for jumping the gun with the questioning.

Heyo! Sorry for the late response!

To answer your questions:

There isn't any real lore behind Pheron only that it is one of many UNSC outer colonies that has been attacked by a Covenant Force. Of course, the UNSC is unaware that the Covenant is looking for something on the planet. As for ORBAT... I never been good with that sort of stuff, however if you like to help me with that I'll gladly accept it. As for population Pheron has three million colonist and the entire planet is industrialized.

Also, I don't mind you asking me questions!

No worries at all, I just don't want to feel like I am overstepping you at all. I pride myself on Halo and the universe it takes place in. I personally am a big fan of the events prior to Halo:CE as well chronologically, as I find the conventional war between humans and the races of the Covenant much more captivating and engaging than as opposed to after CE when you start bringing the forerunners and their backstory into the fold. So if we are basing the fact the Covenant are looking for something on the planet that definitely helps the argument and the strategy at play here ICly that is to follow. That is to say, the Covenant can't straight up glass the planet because then they would risk damaging what they're attempting to look for, whether it's a forerunner artifact, or something else that coincides with that lore and argument, we can obviously establish that collectively at a later date.

As for the industrialization of the planet, I assume then you mean there's barely a sliver of forested area/wilderness to be found? Not that that's a problem whatsoever, but then maybe we should try to establish accurately what the size of the planet is compared to that of Earth. It would be quite difficult for a little over three million people to have completely industrialized an entire Earth-sized planet in the amount of time it's been around, even by technological standards of Halo. Harvest and Reach in comparison were still pretty forested and had heavy amounts of wilderness and open space full of lush natural life and forests/woods and mountain ranges than just city, after city, after city.

As for an ORBAT, if the Covenant have legitimate business with Pheron as far as finding clues to Halo or other relics as previously mentioned, and their intention is to find an artifact, relic buried beneath the surface that is yet to have been discovered by human colonists on the planet, it is likely the force they have brought with them are substantial. The Covenant typically wouldn't waste their large fleets on distant and barely guarded outer colony worlds for the sole reason that one cruiser alone could challenge multiple UNSC ships of varying caliber, and the contingent of infantry and technology aboard just a simple CSV-class cruiser could wipe out half a lightly-defended outer colony world's planetary defense force, which were either Colonial Military Administration forces, or in this case and in the case of a few other outer colony worlds when the UNSC made the switch to their UNSCDF contributing forces to colonial defense post-Harvest Campaign, UNSC Army, Air Force and UNSC Marines as part of the uniformed services branches of the UNSCDF.

As far as time period goes, it is likely this conflict occurred anywhere between 2525 and 2536, as Harvest required a total of five years in what was deemed the "Harvest Campaign" which was a prolonged conflict over an already glassed and mostly barren wasteland save for some means of settlement on the poles of Harvest, mostly for morale. In the same period of time between 2525 to 2531 whilst the UNSC insisted on fighting over Harvest, multiple planets were glassed and/or destroyed in the process so there's no doubt that Pheron would be attacked during this time period when Outer Colonies were still the primary target of the Covenant as they had yet to find/penetrate into Inner Colony space.

  1. I think a Forerunner artifact or a cache of information on UNSC dig sites which may contain Forerunner artifacts would be the best bet. It'd give me a solid objective to defend other than wantonly killing random Covenant higher-ups.
  2. I think I agree with the industrialization portion. Having a cityscape is both annoying narratively (it would be hard for a few million to perform that, unless the planet is extremely small) and tactically (it's not that varied in terms of environments). Maybe Phaeron hosts a UNSC mothball fleet (several dozen older, decommissioned vessels) and has the industrialization to maintain them, with the biggest issue being getting the necessary crews for the vessels as well as fuel, ammunition, etc. Maybe it has several UNSC weapons factories, so the local forces are over-armored compared to others (larger ratio of Scorpion tanks, artillery, etc). Maybe it's being strip-mined due to especially good ore deposits and has some of the refinement processes on-world to simplify. There's a good amount of options.
  3. Unsure on ORBAT, though ONI Section III most definitely has several teams operating in the area. UNSC Marines are probably also present in some amount.
  4. I assumed a middling year of 2531, as in 2525 SPARTAN IIs were 14 and I wanted him to at least be, you know...not a child soldier. Played a lot of things but I don't think I can handle a child soldier.

Name: The Prophet of Probity

Race: San'Shyuum

Gender: Male

Appearance:
Image


Rank: Prophet, Councilor of the High Council, Senior Staffer in the Ministry of Inquisition

Weapons: Energy Pistol

Bio: A creature of bureaucracy and political machination, the Prophet of Probity was born Meb Hron aboard the Covenant capital of High Charity. Hailing from a reputable but ignoble family, success would not be guaranteed for Hron by blood alone. He was labeled as a good student by his educators, but instances of cheating would mar his academic record. Wishing to pursue a career in the Ministry of Inquisition, Hron was distraught when his application was rejected. In a field he perceived to be beneath him, Hron was force to find work within the Ministry of Sanitation. He operated within the backwater Seventh Cloister of High Charity, overseeing an overhaul of the outdated Unngoy sewage systems. In conjunction with his sanitation duties, Hron held unofficial administrative power over his allotted jurisdiction. Not even considered a staffer in the Ministry, Hron often found himself personally working amongst filthy residential complexes. Often taking out his frustration upon his clients, Hron employed Kig-Yar enforcers to brutalize grunt communities which he deemed as "exceptionally impure." In order to spare the Unngoy from his own deplorable treatment of them, Hron accepted payments as a means of protection, effectively extorting his constituents. These oppressive measures did merit some progress in the form of an improved sewage systems for much of the Seventh Cloister, as Hron forced grunts into laboring for his construction projects. Hron was promoted for this achievement, greatly boosting his stagnant career. After many more years of tedious work for the Ministry of Sanitation, Hron managed to secure his transfer to the Ministry of Penance. There he proved himself to be an effective magistrate. Still ambitious and seeking employment within a more prestigious Ministry, Hron began serving as a defense barrister for indicted San'Shyuum. Developing a reputation as a reliable attorney, he began to receive the business of the higher classes. Hron eventually became a judge himself, and from such a position he solicited bribes in exchange for lenient rulings.

Meb Hron finally was inducted into the Ministry of Inquisition after having acquired suitable esteem in the judicial field. Despite his unscrupulous nature and apparent disregard for ethics, Hron is indeed a devout believer of the Covenant religion. In order to absolve himself from his many iniquitous doings, Hron planned to serve the Gods as an Inquisitor in order to make up for his own sins. Such explains his zealousness in the prosecution of those accused with heresy. He gained much prestige for himself after he uncovered a blasphemous sect of San'Shyuum who subscribed to the ancient theology of the Stoics. Hron had defended members of this sect before in the courts, though such did not stop him from ratting them out to further his own career. Promotion followed for him, not only in the form of a higher post within the Ministry, but a seat upon the High Council, the Covenant's executive and legislative body. And so Meb Hron became the Prophet of Probity. He would go on to make alliances with other ambitious San'Shyuum, such as the Minister of Fortitude and the Vice-Minister of Tranquility, whom became the High Prophets of Truth and Regret, respectively. It is likely that he played a part in the rise of the three current Hierarchs to power. Probity enthusiastically supported the declaration of war against Humanity, and he used his influence within the Ministry of Inquisition to secure a military command for himself. He was assigned to a newly formed fleet, which soon set off to enact judgment upon the Human race for their blasphemy against the Gods. Probity's force has well distinguished itself in the war, having glassed numerous Human colony worlds. His forces now gather to assault the planet of Pheron, although rumors of the world harboring Forerunner artifacts may merit a prolonged ground campaign on the surface. The Prophet hopes such rumors are true, for the recovery of relics from the Humans will indeed be a great feat, not only as a means for promotion in the temporal realm of politics, but also in service to the furtherance of the Great Journey.

Name: Oko 'Musum

Race: Sangheili

Gender: Male

Appearance:
Image


Rank: General

Weapons: Type-25 Plasma Rifle and Energy Sword

Bio: Born on Sanghelios, Oko 'Musum would be raised by a military and religious family during his years growing up on the planet. Oko 'Musum would be taught about honor and being devout to the Covenant cause by his own father. It is with these lessons that Oko would fully believe in the Great Journey and fighting for it. When Oko came of age, the young Sangheili would join the ranks of the holy military of the Covenant and would also go on to be its best warrior as well. After the Covenant declared war on humanity, Oko would fight on many human planets and claim victory for the Gods. While Oko saw humans as his enemy, he was one of many Sangheili that respected humanity as a species for their bravery and honor.

After fighting on multiple human planets with success, Oko would quickly be promoted to General with his own army to lead for ground invasions. During his career as a general, Oko would lead many successful ground invasions earning the respect of his fellow Covenant brothers as well as the Prophets. The Sangheili General would soon meet his greatest challenge on the human world known as Pheron, where the humans are hold up on the largest city on the planet. With rumors that there are holy artifacts on the planet, Oko was determined to kill every single human on the planet and find the holy artifacts to prove himself to both the Prophets and the Gods.
