The Lizards came out of nowhere. There was no warning, no chance of escape. Over a quarter of Earth's population died in those first few days as we were bombarded from orbit. And four decades of warfare whittled down another half. Earth herself is also heavily damaged and is barely habitable.
Now that the Lizards have been pushed back, Humanity needs to expand. With technologies stolen and invented from the hell that was war, we push out, determined to begin anew.
This is where you come in.
Enter the Mobile Enhanced Colony Habitation Service, your employer.
Several former enemy worlds are ripe for terraforming for Human habitation. Armed with the best tech money can buy, we're off for adventure on a distant world. Danger, giant humanoid machines at our beck and call, teamwork and adventure!
What's not to love?
Okay then, recruits, down to the nitty-gritty! First of all, this is a storytelling game, though I'm leaning towards using a point system essentially only for clarification here and there. It would be based on the White Wolf system as I find it easy to use. This was created (or stolen) from a variety of games, movies and television for the enjoyment of its creators. If you think something looks familiar, you're probably right.
I will only accept people who want to interact with other players with as much realism and fun as we can create in a fantastic setting. This also means that I will accept and refuse people as I see fit. As GM, I also reserve the right to prod a character if the player does not post for some time. I will also be strict about the passage of time. No offense to anyone, but I'm tired of RPs where one day takes two weeks to go by! A reasonable schedule will be worked out.
I look forward to your interest.
