The Agency (Scifi Military-esque RP) [Need 1 player]
« on: May 29, 2012, 12:32:59 AM »
Hi guys!  So I had a really messed up dream last night that was only fueled by seeing Men in Black III and in my delusion I've come up with: The Agency, a roleplay where weird is the norm!

It's 1940, Hitler's army is tearing across Europe and the United States is trying to remain neutral.  A group of agents, hired by the brand new Strategic Operations Agency, are tasked with finding out what weapons Hitler is cooking up and neutralize them without tipping the US's hand that they want to aid Britain in the war.  During the mission, they find a prototype device, and while they're successful in the mission, they find themselves in a firefight and inside the room when the device is activated.  They get shot into the future, to 2140, and a world they don't recognize.  Without any clue as to how they're going to make it, they manage to get picked up by SOA, now the External Affairs Initiative, and are offered a chance to do what they do best: take out the enemies of the United States.

It's a game meant to focus on being a fish out of water while still trying to serve your country.  It's not going to be hard scifi, and most of the missions will be taking place simultaneously with softer, character driven moments.  How do you cope with the changes in lifestyle, in relationships, and how you see the world?  That's what this game is about.  I want four players who would like to be soldiers who must now deal with the harsh reality that the world they knew has been gone for two hundred years, and it isn't coming back.  You can be serious characters, sarcastic characters, doesn't matter.  It's in how you cope.

Name  Zack 'Scarecrow' Smith

Age 26

Gender Male

Ethnicity White

Brief Bio Born in Florida in 1914 Zack lived a quite and calm life away from the city. His family owned a beach resort on the coast and often Hollywood actors would come to the resort as a place to relax. Zack being the humorous, horny smart ass he was he was never an eye shot away from a well known actress or business woman always trying to bed a woman, he was quite infamous for his silver tongue. When he wasn't out socializing with women or dicking around with his friends he would spend his time studying the many languages and cultures of the world while drinking either Whiskey, or Long Island Ice Tea. When Hitler began ransacking through Europe, Zack remained that it wasn't the United States problem, so therefore we shouldn't deal with it. Plus being a grunt on the front lines would ruin his little set up he had going, however in 1938 his opinion changed when an illegal immigrant from Eastern Europe came washing ashore by himself. Curious Zack walked over to him, the man was starving barely alive his condition was unusual it had seemed as though he was malnourished for months. Zack took the man in and helped him get back to health, after sometime passed the man informed him that the Nazi's were purging everyone that was different to the Nazis.

Zack gave the man $20 and told him a place where he could get a job, he than enlisted in the United States Army as Infantry. He scored top in his class, his PT score maxed at 300 points and he scored a 385 on the extended scale he scored Eagle Eye with the M1A1 Carbine hitting all 40/40 of his targets. He also was designated as the Squad's anti-armorer he trained in the Bazooka, Claymore, Compisition B (Sticky Bombs), and C4. He also learned the MG Squad's job as well and became proficient with the Ma Duce .50 caliber machine gun. Stationed in Fort Benning, GA under the 1st Infantry Division 29th Infantry Regiment Charlie Company "Scarecrows" he attended the Soldier of the Month board. He passed the board yet again with flying colors the Command Sergeant Major asked him if he wanted to go to a school. Zack replied with "Ranger School" so they sent him to Ranger school, which he indeed did pass top of his class when the 3rd Ranger Battalion took him. Now achieving his Sergeant rank in less than 18 months he was a highspeed death machine. Until one day he was transferred to Fort Riley Kansas, he was to work in a S-3 shop. A paper pusher. Zack was infuriated and when he arrived at Fort Riley turned into a total asshole he looked for his unit. 2nd Battalion 39th Armor Regiment, however he couldn't find it. After looking around he saw a man wearing dark sunglasses and a suit, the man approached him and said "You looking for 2/39?" Zack nodded and the man replied "Come with me, I'll square you away." Zack followed the man into a brick building as he followed the man he noticed every room was empty when they arrived to a desk. The man asked Zack several questions and read his Enlisted Record Brief, the man than informed Zack that he was selected to serve in the SOA. Zack at first refused wanting to be on the front line, until he was told that he would be in Europe before any American soldier, and what he could do would drastically affect the outcome. So, he did. He is now at an undisclosed location with 3 other people waiting for his op-order.

Personality Cold, Calm, Collected during work. Off Duty he warms up and is quite funny. However he is almost always a smartass.

Additional Information Expert Marksman, proficient with older weapons. In peek physical condition.

I am rather tired and wrote this up quickly to try and nab one of the 4 spots ;)  So may not be my best work :P


Name: Victoria Watters
Age: 23
Gender: Female
Ethnicity: English
Brief Bio: Victoria was born and raised in the United Kingdom, only coming to the United States of America at the age of 14 when her father decided to get away from the hubbub of life in London and buy a farm in the American west.  The farm barely managed to break even, with Victoria's father struggling with the most basic aspects of farm life.  Victoria didn't know this at the time, for her, it was magnificent.  She spent her days riding on a horse and playing with a rifle, she spent her evenings pouring over a large collection of books her father had brought over from England.  She was 17 when her father decided to write off the farm as a bad idea and return to London.

Victoria decided to stay, even though it meant fending for herself in a man's world.  She moved to New York and got a job as a secretary.  With little spare money, she spent much of her free time at the New York Public Library, pouring over any book she could get her hands on.  That was her life for the next few years, and it was only as the Nazi scourge began to spread over Europe and threaten her former home country that she decided she could be more.  She applied, repeatedly, with the US Army for any position she could.  She was rejected, repeatedly, until finally a man took pity on her.  She was given a job as a secretary, nothing special, but it was a start. 

It was as a secretary that her nature flare for cryptography began to surface.  She tried to keep it hidden, not wanting to risk her job, only to let slip some information she shouldn't have known.  She was questioned as a spy, with no one believing that she could have broken the code, until someone had the idea of giving her a new one to crack.  She was recruited, provisionally, to the SOA, the only people willing to give her a chance. 

Personality: Victoria tends to the quiet side.  However, she is a decent actor, and while she isn't generally comfortable in crowds, is more than capable of acting like she enjoys being there. 

Additional Information: Limited experience with firearms and animals from the farm.  Speaks with a slight British accent.

I'm liking what I see so far.  We have our playboy/demo-man and our cryptologist down pat, so I'm eager to see what else people come up with.

I plan to start, regardless of how many we have, within the next few hours.  I'll mostly be putting in fluff and filler, mostly so you can start reading up on how the game will work, what sort of pseudo-science we're dealing with, and what style we're going for.  Hopefully two more people will show up soon :D

Name: Joseph Adam Kilgore (Callsign "Rookie")
Age: 31
Gender: M
Ethnicity: Mulatto (Nigerian and Irish)
Brief Bio: Joseph was born in Boston in 1909.  His parents were both immigrants -- Nigerian mother and Irish father.  He grew up living in a well to do area of Quincy (his father was quite rich).  He grew up living in a bilingual house, and quickly became proud of the fact he spoke both Yoruba and English.  This motivated him to actively pursue learning other languages in school.  By the time he enlisted in 1927, Joseph was not only a skilled linguist, but also the valedictorian of his class and an impressive amateur long distance runner.  He applied directly to officer candidate school but was denied for reasons that were not made clear.  He joined the army as an enlisted, and after two attempts was finally accepted after repeatedly scoring in the top percentile on the aptitude test (Joseph later discovered the local recruiter had it in for his parents).

He moved up in the ranks, serving his time as a linguist on a military base in England.  While there, he married a woman who ran a local pub and fathered a son and a daughter as twins.  The SOA recruited him in 1939 for his experience with languages, his fitness, his intelligence, and his proximity to Germany.

Additional Information: Knows Yoruba, English, German, French, and Hausa.  Proficient with most rifles (including long range).  Very fast runner.  Serves primarily as a translator/interpreter for the SOA.

Name:Rachel Blackmoore

Age:26
Gender:Female
Ethnicity:Caucasian (of German and Egyptian descent)

Brief Bio: Born in 1914, she lost her father in WWI.  When unrest begins once more, as the world seems on the brink of yet another war, she determines to do whatever she can.  She learns First Aid and works in hospitals.  She's strong, tough, and able to make some of those hard decisions that can make others hesitate during triage.  Her ability is noted, as well as her ability to speak German and French.  She's promoted to a desk job and slowly introduced into the Secret Service, trained to be a spy.  She can blend in anywhere and has an excellent memory and this makes her a valuable field agent.  She is used as an extraction specialist, aiding those who are injured or in danger of dectection to get out of the danger zone.  Between missions, she is a desk jockey and that does not please her.  When the chance to join the specialty group, she jumps at the chance.  She just didn't know how big the leap was going to be.

Personality: Rachel is perceived as quiet and studious.  That's the working side of her, the watcher.  However, she possesses a quick wit and often shocks people with off-color humor.  She seems prim and proper, but she's used to being up to her elbows in blood and understands that right now is all you've got and you'd better make the most of it in any situation.  She's daring to the point that others might consider her foolhardy with a deathwish.

Additional Information: She's 5'7" tall, stronger than she appears, and very good with necessary improvisation.  Her training with the British Secret Service included general firearms (at which she wasn't terribly good) hand-to-hand combat with which she was better, and, of course excellent navigational skills or else she'd still be wandering the French forests.



If it's not too late...and, she could shift to being an American if that's more appropriate.

Ok looks great.  Expect some discomfort given your Germanic heritage, but otherwise I think we can roll with this.  Nationality is British, I'm assuming?  Or American?

I was thinking British, but if the agency isn't multi-national, she can be transplanted to the US.

We've got a British agent so no worries.  So the boys are from America, the girls Britain.

Name: Robert O'Donnel, nickname "The Bear"
Age: 46
Gender: Male
Ethnicity: Irish
Brief Bio:Born in the very late 19th century Robert grew up very poor. His mother had died in the potato famine and thus the only one left to raise him was his father. The older O'Donnel was a drunk and a brute and did not hesitate to get violent under Roberts childhood. The first chance he got he joined the army in an attempt to get away from his miserable home-town.
He soon got a taste for the military life and was promoted to group leader within his first year. He was growing more and more in the army untill he couldn't sleep properly unless he was in battle. War became his drug and he soon advanced to sargent. In the first world war he was serving the british army in a recon mission in northen Italy when their escort, a Mark IV light tank, drove over a land mine. The debris hit half of his squad and the tank became useless. Although the future of the mission seemed impossible he and half of his squad capured an enemy out-post with twice the men, mounted machine guns and one tank and from there he managed to radio for back-up. After that Robert became head-hunted for a secret organization, the SOA.
Personality: Robert is a very harsh and on the outside cold person who have great problems with trust. He is a straight through army man and always achive his objective, even though he might break some military procedures on the way. Personal relations, peoples feeling and even his own health is always secondary to the mission. He has no time for incompetence but prove yourself on the battlefield and you'll have his loyality forever.
Additional Information: The Bear got his name not only because of his large size but also from his type of fighting. He has little training beside his experience from the battlefield which has left him with a very brutal way of fighting relying mostly on strenght. He is capable of using almost any gun but prefere a good shotgun and in general close combat. If he is out of ammo he simply uses his rifle as a club and when that breaks he will use his fists.

Name:Marina Vladov
Age:28
Gender:Female
Ethnicity:Russian

Brief Bio:Marina Vladov, one of the few female fighter pilots in the war. Part of the 588th Night Bomber Regiment, thought the Germans know them more famously as Nachthexen - Night Witches. Marina was part of a group of female pilots that entered service to a large amount of doubt and skepticism. The three groups of female pilots, however, went on to become legends. Flying outdated, slow, clumsy aircraft, they conducted harassment and precision bombing missions at night on the Germans. In biplanes. Marina personally flew her Polikarpov Po-2 on a number of bombing runs, using it's small size and maneuverability to not only accomplish her goals, but also take out several German planes in the process. Marina was one of the pilots that helped develop the stealth technique of idling the engine upon target approach and then gliding in before releasing the bombs. A daring and risky maneuver. Due to her courage and talent, Marina was quickly snapped up by the SOA.

Personality:Marina has a fierce loyalty to her comrades - especially other women she may be fighting with. She feels she has something to prove, however, and may go out of her way to impress, thus putting herself in danger. Her daring attitude is not without benefits, however, as she certainly has the skill required to back it up.

Additional Information:Marina has been on numerous hunting trips as a girl with her father. She is a good shot with a rifle, and can be stealthy when necessary. Though not trained to the extent of a sharpshooter or spy, there is no need to fear that she would slow the group down.

Um, MsHyde... I'm afraid I can't allow a Russian on this mission, due to the cease fire Hitler signed with Stalin.  While I like the concept, the cease-fire will complicate things, especially if it was found out that a Russian was working with the Brits and Yanks to attack the Germans.
