Just a fan of the series that used to be pretty big on the roleplaying. I've been looking around for a good Halo roleplay to get back into things but I have noticed that the Halo roleplays seem to be gone. So I've decided to come up with an idea of my own for the sake or getting a roleplay under way.
This is in no way going to be a large project (unless the participants and myself feel up to it) and the idea is rather simple.
Its been a few years since the war that nearly wiped out the entire human species. Humanity was able to pick itself up and began to reclaim lost ground by re-charting lost planets, rumored asteroid habitats or colonizing previously unknown planets.
One planet, on the extreme edge of the outer colonies was spared, not by choice, but by the fact that the colony ship was inbound via hyper when the then covenant ships scanned the system. The colony prospered without a whisper of what was happening throughout human territory and without the presence or promised follow-up groups from earth, the colony naturally formed its very own government.
After the war was over the UNSC, having lost all records of the colony, was surprised when the survey ship they had sent returned with their findings. Not only was the system run by 'insurrectionists' but the planet had a strange alien installation just under it's surface.
EDITS & CHANGES
Wednesday, August 31.
For the sake of realism, if you have or want your character to have a mid-high rank then please try to think of why. Simple skill with a weapon will not get you a promotion, but will put you in line for a specialist.
That is the rough idea so far, once we get things going the actual story should have a few more details. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
The Character sheet is rather basic with room to grow. Right now we have the the UNSC, the 'Insurrectionists' and possibly covenant (loyalist and Separatist) forces, as such when making your character be sure to keep in mind which group you belong to.
Name: Preferably full name. Alias acceptable with the real name of the character
Age: By years, date of birth optional.
Gender: Male or Female.
Species: Human, shangelli, Jiralhanai, Unggoy, etc.
Affiliation: UNSC, Insurrectionist, Covenant Loyalist, Covenant Separatist.
Service/Rank: Dependent on species, Human usually lists Navy, Marine, Army, etc. Covenant is run via a caste system. Ranks are also dependent on species.
Short History: Give a short, clear history into your character's life, preferably three paragraphs that cover the essentials. Longer, more detailed histories are just as appreciated and will earn a closer look. Quick, fast histories less than three paragraphs have the chance of being looked over.
Spartan Characters are currently allowed on a limited basis and need more details than other characters
