Temporal Exploration
« on: April 12, 2014, 01:24:40 AM »

I had a idea, looking through old RPG books. I saw this awesome setting I want to use for a PbP game. Basically you are all employees of a technology company who make various electronics for many different customers. A wide selection of people work in the remote compound, which is more of a fortress, but the most desirable position is to work on the companies top project. Through some less then clear means the CEO has managed to devise a, for a lack of a better term, portal to the past. No one understands how the thing works but you all know it works. When you were recruited you went through a process that could only be described as a faith test.  All of you are eager young souls wanting to make your mark on the world so when you saw what this man did, you are to a point loyal to him. Whether or not genuine you at least passed that test. Now after passing several decon chambers you stand before the portal, ready to step through and make your mark. Maybe in a way which is too literal.

On the other side is FOB Delta, which stands 70 million years in the past.

The things that await you will turn science on it's head. With discovery comes risk and in the Jurassic period, the risks are major.

Just remember Dunbex Electronics doesn't cover being eaten.

Anyone interested?
-Time will be modern
-Occupations will be a mixture of science fields, trackers, security etc.
-It will involve more then one period of time
-It will start out innocent but quickly the repercussions of time travel will catch up the company.

I had an idea sort of like this some time back, but wasn't sure that it would fly so didn't offer it.

Label me interested and we'll see what happens as more information is revealed.

Absolutely, Dunbex would hire experienced hunters/trackers to guide the expeditions from the base camp. Would be silly not to given that most of the expedition would be various scientist. Think Roland Tembo and Muldoon from the JP series.

I was going for Robert Muldoon in that respect

Well, since someone brought up JP... maybe a sexy little paleo-botanist wanting to do research on jerrissic period plantlife as a potential source of medicinal opportunities with the hope of bringing a few of the extinct species back for more in depth research... Thinking petite, but curvy enough to make a 70 million year old stick stand up and take notice. ;)

Absolutely no problem with that, there will be all kinds of amazing flora and fauna for you to prod.
 

I should note you will be wearing suits on any outing given the bacteria and such that your bodies wouldn't be able to fight off.

They won't always be out in the wild, so it's cool. The suits make sense to me though

True and you'll have your trusty guide to protect you along the way with abs of steel

No you won't, and it's not going to be bulky modern suits. A lot of research has gone into making a decent suit not to hinder your movements. The actual base is underground, a small base up top protected by sonic sensors is the set up point.

Hopefully I get some more people in here.

I hope that more interest is shown as well, this could be fun!
