Well, not so much the Logos as the Osiris now.  Fen is by herself right now so anything would be most welcome since it's a nine person ship.  The rest, unless filled, can be NPCs as needed.

Yeah, that was an idea I had once, would love to be a matrix runner capable of all kinds of crazy super human abilities.

Where does this game stand?

Well, to answer your question my good fellow, Fen is currently on her own but she's a runner herself.  I think she'd be happy with the company of another if you're willing to work on the same ship with her.  Beyond that it's your call buddy.  I could use more human characters but I allow everyone to play both a human and a computer program character.

Well, if you took a look at my thread from 2009 that I linked, you would see that I had the whole ship running idea a while back.

I would love to join up with Fen, which ship is she on?  I will write up a pilot for said ship with all the flair to go along with  ^.^

Lol it's called the Osiris, the same one that took a nose dive when the Machine army totally tore it apart, but not before the crew got a warning out to the rest of Zion.  Anyway, post your character thread here and then, if I like it, do an OOC post and put the completed sheet in the character thread as well.  After that, you're on your own my friend....for the most part.

Working on the sheet now. 

He will be an independent fleet owner and operator of business jets for the business elite on the inside.  Pilot/mechanic inside and out.  Master of Akido.  Can stand toe to toe with agents, even besting some if in an isolated location with his deadly throws and pins.

More to come  ^.^

I'm getting rather tired of having to say this.  Only The ONE can stand up to an Agent and hope to win.

Okay, Vergil, apologies.

Is being able to draw to a stale mate in battle with an agent an acceptable solution?

Lol yes, and sorry I snapped at you just I already have a ton of people already trying to be as strong as an Agent and everything else.  Agents are supposed to be unstoppable though so it's just making me grouchy now when I have people trying to one up them every chance they can.  Anyway, yes, but don't make it a habit is all I ask.

Name:  Jackson Myers 
Codename: Axle

Age:  29
Gender:  Male
Ethnicity:  Greek

Eye Color: Brown
Hair Color: Dark Brown
Height: 5'6"
Weight: 155 lbs

Freed:  Unplugged
Previous Plugged in Status: Pilot/Mechanic

Freed Status: Pilot/Mech/Muscle
Ship Name: Osiris

Personality and Habits/Tendencies: 

Axle is a very smooth under pressure pilot who can also fix whatever it is he flies.  A seat of the pants flier with aggressive on the stick antics, Axle laughs and jokes in the worst of moments while breaking a sweat trying to keep himself alive.  Once a trust is established, he will have your back for life.

Sexual Preferences: See E O/O
Sexual Turn Offs:  I play straight characters ^.^

Background History of Subject: 

Jackson found release early as an odd and uncharacteristic sort of flight of fancy.  He had finally perfected his most daring to date skate board trick and nailed it at a height that was unheard of for any of his friends, and he kept flying, completely breaking the laws of physics... This made him question everything, reality, what was the world around him.  He soon was found online by one called Ronin and he took the pill and found his way to the real world.

That was the age of 12.

The next few months were a blur for the preteen.  His rescue was still beyond his comprehension.  Why did everything hurt so badly?  His rehabilitation was slow and painful.  His body had just been suppressed by the towers to keep his puberty at bay.  To encourage his body to grow was difficult. 

He used his insane ability as a pilot and mechanic to work into the inner circles of those that were thought to be awakened minds, he offered them a way out.  He could pilot anything out there and fix it too.

Awareness Level: 16 years 11 months and 1 day

I am not sure if I buy him flying off and then suddenly waking up my friend.  That, and those Freed are usually too busy running and gunning to make any kind of name for themselves other than on the most wanted list.  Beyond that, I like him.  If you could change those a bit I'd be happy to accept him Aether.

I'm around in a way =) but to be honest I don't see the need for more than one runner on any particular ship.  I haven't read your link though because it doesn't show up as one on my phone...

It went like this  ^.^

I have seen alot of neat rp lite systems on the forum here.  D81 is one, and an rp lite that rubyslippers has in a post here abouts that crashes my post every time I try to link it here -sighs-  I think that a character build up will help us, though we can probably by and large deal with all we need to in post.  More to follow.

I would like to play in a universe not portrayed by the movies.  However, as Warner brothers portrayed the war of human vs machine: I want to stick to this by and large.  In my proposed universe, humans will not be utterly controlled to the point of continual extinction.  They will have several 'Zions' and will have a reasonable combat (unlike the guerrilla warfare in movie) approach to the machines.  Humans will rarely ascend to the surface.  Yet they will battle the machines continually.  The battle lines will be drawn in the old city complexes above the human settlements underground.  Humans will have their ships.  I want my universe to have more of refined quality to it.  Since humanity will be at a nearly even footing with the machines, their ships will not be so rag tag.  In fact, they will be 'star wars'-ish, like Lucas' first three movies.  Not shined to a chrome finish, but elegant.  Same repulsor lift technology.  Same barrel fed weapons for ease of replication.  I would like to encourage some ion weapon development for better machine management in game.  The character that picks up that task will be blessed by the gm  -.-

The machines will have developed the same energy management they did in the movies, which would be why this is a 'Matrix' style game vs a terminator one.  Ships will be set up to broadcast and fight the machines at their very core of survival, their power source.  The more minds freed by humanity, the better the war vs the machines goes.  In the Matrix, posts will be dealt with in separate threads if in the case of a mission that is supported by several human uploads.  If Matrix situations like encouragement of a npc human enslaved to the matrix to join the human resistances happens, with no by and large consequence by the machines, this can be handled in individual threads.  These individual threads would be entitled after the character and would contain their 'duty logs' from their matrix watches.  When agents are met, a system will be invoked.  It will represent the response of 'programs' to your incursion into the matrix to do whatever it is that you go there to do.

I do not want to follow canon.  No Neo.  No the one, no savior, no interdependence on the machines and the perpetual survival of Zion one and solely for humanity to survive.

My idea in regards to this forum is to find no more than 8 and no less than 4 to run a ship.  I am brand new here and have never successfully run anything like a group of rpers in my life.  I would need help.  I would hope that my weight and decision would help clarify any deviations from the matrix idea, thus firmly keep me in the loop.  I can also help in the day to day to keep an idea like this running.  Story ideas can be easily come up with, and I would be willing to write these up.  I may bug my help with them, partial bowing to my OCD to keep my posts good...

This is my idea.  I have no intent of starting right outta the gate with this to a game.  I hope to however generate dialogue to my own further refining of said idea so that it is indeed game-able.

Okay, have you seen the antimatrix, Vergil?  There are a couple different ways that plugged in minds can wake up, my favorite was the runner that ran so fast that he almost made it out.

Not a problem, it has been edited, how is it now?

Fenrir, Axle wont need to come in unless there is a meeting or some such, or a need for protection, whatever.  I can be doing my own little thing off somewhere else possibly, or just flying the ship, I will take it organically, hows that sound?

Not sure if my opinion counts any more past a second runner on my ship (I keep calling it that even thought I'm not captain just because I was the first one on it  ;D) but I agree with Verg on the whole trying to keep it closer to the movies- mostly since we already started.  Though sometimes I think we stick too close to phrases and happenings of the movie especially since it is supposed to be before them.  But that's just me.

If we hadn't I would gladly explore a Matrix vs Terminator world.  It would create more dynamic. 

I've seen the Animatrix Aether and I particularly like the kid who jumped from the building and woke up.  The runner was depressing to me because he didn't actually make it out.  But to be honest my favorite short in the film is the last one where the human's are convincing machines to fight for them by changing their concept of realities.  It would be fun to do that sometime.  You could always opt for a pilot outside of the matrix and weapons expert in that way we wouldn't be "running" into each other.  *laughs at her own pun like a loser*

Yeah, the child was in the third movie too...  And like you said, he woke up when he jumped out the window and said, "I believe."

The last one was fantastic.

And sure, thats more what I was opting for, Fenrir, was an accessory to your runner.

Maybe and accessory to group missions when Bugs is playing more of a Medic role than an actual Runner- she's fairly solo most of the time.  But as a Medic she'd definitely need more protection.   ::) Hope I'm not seeming difficult I'm just meticulous.

I tend to lean towards a more self sufficient sort of writing style, which usually includes more npcs to advance my ideas and fill in the gaps, so I can certainly accommodate you.

Besides, I see a scene in our future that includes Axle piloting the Osiris and Bugs trying to make it to a hard line while swarms of squiddies chases the Osiris.  Can anyone say 'the last flight...?'

After I created my character as a Runner and I was trying to decide what ship I wanted to be on... That is the *exact* reason that I picked the Osiris.  Though I wouldn't think that this character would do that trip since it is a different cycle but what do I know.

*thwaps Vergil* Ahem, a lil late.  But I've been busy.  Anyways... It's The One or Seraph for a win in toe to toe versus an Agent.

The One > Seraph > Agents > Exiles/Unplugged(trained)

*The above only applies if the Exile in question wasn't an Agent.  If the Exile was an Agent, they'd retain their greater combat ability than other Exiles.  Altered programs such as in the case if the Agent Smith virus again bend the rules.

And if you consider the above, that's really only because The One can literally alter anything, thus he can fly, walk on water, walk on air and spin kick you in the head....etc etc. 

Put in quick terms, Seraph would be like a program version of The One; he just can't go around bending everything to his will.  But he will kick you in the head and make your head spin.
