Time is running out...
« on: May 30, 2012, 06:11:03 PM »
Everyone knows the secret of Area 51, but what if there was another US government secret in the Nevada desert?

In the early 50s a traveller from the future arrived, warning that in the future time travel would become standard and if it wasn't policed it would be the greatest threat to world security they had ever seen. With his help the FBI set up the Time Agency, a group of elite agents trained to deal with threats to the timeline without the public ever being aware of their existence, based in the Nevada desert where few would notice it.

But something has gone seriously wrong.

The timeline has changed, events are taking place which shouldn't be, and as one of the few people aware something is wrong agent Jake Smithers must discover the truth before the real threat reveals itself. But is he already too late?


I would be playing Jake, your character can be anyone (as long as they're human, aside from the time travel this is a relatively realistic Earth) but you need to have something about their life that has been altered but which they are at the start of the story they are unaware isn't right. Suggestions for potential changes (although feel free to choose one of your own):

Dead family members who shouldn't be.
A wife they didn't meet in the changed timeline.
A different, perhaps less rewarding, job.
Living in the wrong town entirely.

The only other rule (aside from no power or godmodding) is that they must live in the immediate proximity of Jake as they need to be able to interact with him. Any other questions, feel free to ask.

that's a nice spin on the classic timetravelling story. I'm interested, thinking of a character could be pretty challenging though, which is a huge draw to this game for me. I feel like it would take a few days to write something (I always think of characters faster than expected though).

Do you have a nice device to unite all of our characters, or should I worry about how we're all going to end up in the same spot?

Well my thought is, considering Jake is panicking big time currently he's shouting out things he shouldn't do (look in the RP, under the same name as this request thread, for how it starts) so perhaps you could be his neighbour who overhears it and wonders what the heck he's talking about. After all the neighbour is unaware what's happening.

Name: Jake Smithers
Age: 25
Job: Agent of the Time Agency.
Biography: A young man born in upstate New York Jake was recruited to the Time Agency at college after showing an astonishing knowledge of quantam physics. One of the few recruits from his year who made it through the Agency's rigorous training regime he is now an active agent. He live alone in Iowa and wears the time travel device all agents use on missions constantly, even when asleep. To some this appears to be extreme paranoia or weird, but as he is about to discover it may be what saves his life...

sounds like a good plan, could you do a character bio in here (like the one I posted for Jake but about your character obviously)

I am home and time for myself, to rp. Ok time for my skelly. Name: Hannah Montgomery. Age: 19. Occupation: Nurse. She also work's for the Time Agency's medical staff. ( I hope that's ok to put that. ) Hair: Blonde hair to the tip's of her shoulders. Eyes: Baby blues as deep as the ocean's water's. Clothing: It changes daily of course, but she usually wear's nursing scrub's at work and off duty, she is adorned in jean's and blouses and tennis shoes. In the summer she wear's summer dresses, shaw's and flip flop's or open toed sandles. Bio: Hannah is married, but the man she is married to doesn't know that they are married. ( I wasn't sure what to put for that part. ) End Skelly.

That sounds alright, if she doesn't know she's married then I take it you're assuming she doesn't realise the timeline has been changed? (there's a spoilerific reason for me asking that lol)

Well no, I meant more that neither of them realise in the real timeline they're married. Not necessarily that someone's deliberately ensured they never met but that it was sort of a butterfly effect from another alteration, if that makes sense?

lol well, if the other guy doesn't respond to your pm, then she can be Jake's wife if you like. So, would she know that she is married, but just nit to who? Sorry for the wait, I was eating dinner.

I prefer the idea that she thinks she's single, he knows they're married and is trying to convince her he's not a complete weirdo  :P

There should be a modify button next to your post with the skelly in it, that's how you edit. The actual RP is in the Non-Adult Roleplay section of the site, best off waiting for an answer from the other potential character before you post though. I can link the story thread in here though so you can check out the first post if you want
