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.

Code: [Select]
[b]Name:[/b]
[b]Age:[/b]
[b]Gender:[/b]
[b]Species:[/b]

[b]Affiliation:[/b]
[b]Service/Rank:[/b]
[b]Short History:[/b]

Explanation-
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

Hey, good work thus far, I'm interested, no surprise there, lol.

Name: "Gladiator" Service Tag: 0161
Age: 26
Gender: male
Species: Human



Affiliation: United Nations Space Command Spartan 2
Service/Rank: Field Marshall (actual rank on Halo Reach, lol)

Short History:

Gladiator like all the other Spartan 2's is a clone, one that was bred from a military family whose son was a cripple from an accident. He was trained on many worlds including Earth, Onyx, and Harvest shortly before being assigned to Reach shortly before it was attacked by the Covenant, he never ran into any of the so called "legends" like the Noble Team or Master Chief but, he's known of their actions through scuttlebutt and mission reports. Since then, he's been in a number of skirmishes and battles defending the remaining colonized worlds. Over the years he climbed the ranks like any soldier would, and was trusted more and more with leadership responsibilities, until finally with the defense of Earth, he led a battle that earned him the rank of Field Marshal.

OOC: Still WIP on the bio....

Hey, glad to see people interested! I've modified the main post slightly, please direct your attention there. In the mean time I am still preparing so expect a small wait until we get rolling. I would like to have a couple more people if possible before beginning.

Haven't much going on so I s'pose I'll sign in an application.

Name: Shana Wasser
Age: 34
Gender: female
Species: Human/cyborg
Affiliation: UNSC
Rank: Private
Short History: One shouldn't be fooled by the rank, but by her size. Shana first joined the marines when she was 18 years old in a desperate act to support her sick baby girl and young husband. After four years of average service she was returned home only to be stop-lossed. Shortly after, her colony was destroyed by covenant forces. Heart broken, Shana desired nothing more, but death in the field of duty. However, new hope came to her and instead she built up her ranking in high hopes of becoming a legendary Spartan. Something went wrong in the process to become a super soldier and it nearly cost her her life. Shana had nothing else and the rest of her report is classified. 16 years of service and Shana is now the lowest of rankings.
