BEFORE THERE WAS A RED VS. BLUETHERE WAS PROJECT FREELANCER...
If that image or title did not clue you into what kind of Group RP I am looking for interest for-- then you have obviously been living under a rock or something.
This is an RP I have been craving for a little bit now. Obviously it will not be focused on the Red or Blue teams, but more on the soldiers that set them all on this path.
I feel like it should be explored a bit more, which is why I have made this interest check.
***So, that exactly is Project Freelancer?
As derived from the Red vs. Blue wiki:
"Project Freelancer is a state of the art scientific endeavor, with one goal in mind: to ensure the security of humanity in a harsh and violent galaxy."
In a nutshell, Project Freelancer is a Special Ops program that experiments with human soldiers and A.I. implants. This program was created in order to give humanity the edge over their ongoing war with The Covenant. The program is run by a man known only as The Director and boast 50 Agents that operate under the designation of U.S. State names.
50 people is very ambitious, so I am scaling this down to 10. Anywho:
Okay, so I think I got it. What the hell makes them so special anyways?
The agents of this project are actually capable and competent enough to be on the front lines fighting off Covenant forces. They do so with special armor components, artificial intelligence programs (more on this later), and their proficiency in combat. Don't believe me? You should really, really watch this video before continuing.
Wow! They really are a bunch of badasses! So where does this RP comes in?
This RP will be following a plot line that is still being developed in my already overworked brain. While it may touch on some things from the series itself, it will feature its own unique and developing storyline. So far The Director will be sending the Agents on various missions reconnaissance, assassinations, escort high profile members of the UNSC, weapon manufacturers-- you name it. These missions also serve to track the agent's performance out in the field as well as the state of their A.I.
Why track progress you say? Once again from the RvB wiki:
The Freelancer Leaderboard is a ranking system table that displays the stats of the top eight ranking Freelancers. It plays a major role in having a lasting effect on the Freelancers and their views towards the Project, the Director, and each other.
Being Number 1 means getting A LOT of perks. More on this later.
Once again, still working on it, and ideas/ brainstorming sessions are always welcome. -thumbs up-
Y'know what? I think you captured my interest. Where do I sign up?
Why right here... on the dotted line. Don't worry about the fine print. I kid! Let me give you guys some details now!
BUT WAIT! You forgot about the Artificial Intelligence Programs!
-smacks forehead- Oh duh! Right! So we all know what an A.I is right, insofar as the Halo series goes? No? Alright. As derived from the Halo Nation wiki:
Artificial intelligence, abbreviated A.I., is an artificially created construct that exhibits intelligence similar to a sentient being. AIs were known to be used by the Forerunners, and later by humanity to a great extent. The first generation "Smart" A.I.s were developed by humanity in the mid-21st century. Most A.I. constructs give themselves a unique appearance (otherwise known as an avatar) that corresponds to their main use.
Insofar as Project Freelancer works, there are 10 A.I. Now I know that sounds like enough for all, but some of these A.I. will come with... complications. Much like a parasite feeding off of its host. The A.I's are:
I know I know most of these A.I. were destroyed in the series, but for the sake of the Rp they are all still very much active. They all also share attributes and specific abilities that can help augment the skills of the agent that they are paired with in combat. I will definitely get more into attributes and abilities later, depending on interest.
Okay, think I got it all! Can I create a character now?
