Apple Seed (Sci-Fi/Interest Check)
« on: July 13, 2013, 12:31:54 AM »
Couldn't really think of another title.

After browsing I was thinking of doing a "Lost In Space" type group  game.

~turns on projector~

Ok so the story is based in the not so distant future. The planet earth is completely destroyed and the human populous is endangered. The ones that did make the cut are adrift in space on these large country sized ships called "colonies" that are also occupied by "other" races of  beings from different parts of space.

Now the focus of this story is to focus on the dwindling human culture and how they survive in space, also I  the alien vs human hostilities.  Really I'm just drafting up ideas. Anyone interested is welcome to chime in.

This is a very 'tight' story because there is no planet to explore (yet) and developing relations between humans and aliens (hostile or not so hostile) will be interesting. Yes I do expect some race mixing and we will be needed 'alien' characters if this gets off the ground. Aliens can look however you want them to and not the typical green little men from mars.

Let me know what you guys thinks

Wonderful!

@Babylon I'm not familiar with Babylon 5 (at least I don't think). It's sort of like that movie  "Titan A.E." , but you're right on the not as friendly part.

Since I have enough interest I can start world building. Does anyone know what type of characters they have in mind?

Let's say it's been five years since the earth has been destroyed. Not really focusing on why or how they planet was destroyed, but just how exactly are some humans going to adapt. I want to say we were at the point we're humans started building space stations on the moon, but that was also destroyed too.


The Colony will be run like a giant space ship, sort of like an alien Noah's Ark. Humans are at the bottom of the inter-species totem poll. They have rights and all that it's just that they are exposed to certain prejudices being a 'baby' race. However not all aliens feel the same way, some have adopted humans in to their cultures.

Hopefully that will give you an idea of what everyday life is like in the colony.

Also love that that 4th alien in is actually a demon from Dragon Age, still would make a great alien too.

.The Blueprint

Name: Ceres sai Re
Gender: Symbiote(male)/Female

Origins: Little is known in detail about this race of symbiote. They are a sentient race of semi-organic beings who can live for thousands of years in a host body. While it may be true that they were indeed engineered it is not for certain by who or for what purpose. To fairly newer races they are called "parasites" for their ability to attach their-selves and alter the biology of the host, but being that the symbiotes are indeed masculine every host they attach themselves to must be female in order for an organic fusion to balance. Once balance has occurred and the host accepts, a partnership between the two develops.

Background: Ceres hails from the planet Khamit Dune. they are a race of winged humanoid like beings. In the past they have visited earth many times and have shared knowledge and power with indigenous populations. They had left the earth to it's own devices thousands of years before it's destruction. Ceres occupation was an ambassador of war for her planet because in this time neighboring planets were warring over resources at the time. In the battle of control one of the ships Ceres was occupying along with the captain and crew had been blown apart and left adrift in space until discovered  by race of sentient inorganic beings that were composed mostly of dark matter. Her crew did not survive and being badly injured she also accepted death not knowing what became of the rest of war. However the beings that saved her made her an offer she could not refuse...

She accepted the bonding of the symbiote to her form and her body was restored. Unfortunately  she was too late to save her own planet, the war was lost, the fight over and she was left to wander the stars with rogue crew of cosmic travelers. Ever since that time there has always been growing hostility  between various races because many lives and planets had been lost. The remnants of such catastrophe gathered on space drifting colonies where they were forced to make due and to realize that many were without a planet.

Spoiler: Click to Show/Hide

Currently:She serves as the lead of operations for the colony as peace enforcer

Description /Abilities: Her normally physiology can be compared to the average earth woman except she is stronger and more durable. Her wings allow her flight at sub sonic speed with a span of 12 feet. With the symbiote she is able to heal in hours and not in days, the symbiote also forms as organic weapon-anything from full plate of nearly impenetrable body armor to whip like extension, knives and other stabbing weapons.

Likes Spending time in the anti-gravity shaft were she can float peacefully and meditate on today's events. Also she's quite fond of humans and looks at them as a baby race. Her favorite things to snack on are poppers (like popcorn).

Dislikes Strange smells and tentacles.


Alright this will be the jist of it!

Character Name:Aaron Renolds aka Doomglazer

Age: 32

Occupation:Special Ops Soldier

Background: Why were you selected for the Colonist Ship?
As a young student he was picked out of college by the military. Once in the military they noticed he was a special kind of guy who could adapt to every situation they put him in. He was unique in that way. He also wasn't afraid of killing he didn't even blink when he sliced somebodies throat. At the age of 20 he was put into the special ops division. Were he was trained in close combat specialisation and infiltrating. At the age of 30 has was the leader of the special ops division.
I was selected because they needed a soldier hardend in combat and not afraid of speaking his mind. He is also a specialist in close combat

Personality:A quiet guy and takes allot of shit but when it reaches his limit he will go berserk. He always warns people not to step over a certain boundary but if they do they will have felt it.
He is also friendly and a real lady's man always trying to get in there pants. He also respects his commander and would die for him.
