Synopsis:
Portals to some unknown world have opened up in several major cities around the globe, and monsters, demons and other horrible beasts began to spill out, wreaking havoc for two full days until the nations rallied their military and push the creatures all the way back into their portals and even manage to capture the area around the portals on the other side. The UN, confronted with this new world with its Resources, and knowledge, decided to explore this new world. While on the surface it was declared as a expedition to find, and bring to justice those that were responsible for the attacks on Earth, There are elements within the UN looking to find a way to benefit from this new discovery.

The Story will follow Recon team 13. A group of soldiers pulled from various military forces from around the World to explore, and establish diplomatic relations with the denizens of this world.

*2nd GM drops in*

To be specific for those of you who know Fables. Issue 55 is the one that helped inspire this.

So all players will be humans on the recon team? Can I claim the XO?

You can be Human if you want or you can be a non-human local who joins the party.

I might do both since it says multiple characters is encouraged. Would their be lycans and if so, can they control themselves?

hhhmm.....im gonna half to talk it over with Mac (the other GM) that is one of the things we are still trying to decide on. So put a pin on that for now. But have a backup character or 2 just in case.

The biggest worry we have is one character/magic user getting too OP and taking away from the fun of everyone else.

Online Juggtacular

Yeah. I understand that. I'll just work on the soldier for now.

I can get behind this.  It was similar to a game I tried to run but got nowhere with.

I'm interesting in the scientist role or a common soldier.

Glad to see you both here. You can play both characters if you want/think you can handle it Warden.

Can I get specifics on  the type of scientist, 'cause that's a broad term.  In my head, I'm picturing the tactician sorts.

Il ask Mac when he comes back but something along the lines of a guy who got stuck with the Recon team to learn more about his new world. We got giant spiders and dragons and sea serpents. We need a man of science there to see what we can learn.  :P

Which is my way of saying...I don't know. Il have to ask Mac.

Assuming it's the way I imagine, you'll have an occult investigator type 'scientist' in that case.  I know just who to base her off of too.

Ohh that sounds interesting! I hadn't thought of that.  :-)

Question! Are shapeshifters okay? I actually haven't seen much of the source material, but I wanna be a shapeshifter.

As I said with Jugg, I will have to talk it over with Mac84 (the other GM) we are on the fence about that.

I'm a natural shapeshifter.  I become something super scary when exposed to the clicking on of lights...


Offline Angiejuusan

Fair enough. Especially because when I say 'shapeshifter', I don't mean one alternate form, I mean more like Mystique. Basically "does it look humanoid? I can do it!"

Hello Jugg,
Yes, the XO slot is still open. Initially, all the military Members of the team are Earthlings, though how the story goes, that may change with whom joins up from the New world.

I might do both since it says multiple characters is encouraged. Would their be lycans and if so, can they control themselves?

 I would have to decline on a Full lycan/werewolf as lore tends to shine them on in an OP fashion. There is an alternative called "Wolfkyn" Which falls under the "Beastkyn"(Furry) banner. Basically, it is a Wolfperson that has enhanced Senses (Low Light sight, Smell, and hearing). I'm not sure if that helps or not.

Can I get specifics on  the type of scientist, 'cause that's a broad term.  In my head, I'm picturing the tactician sorts.

Hello Warden,

I really had no concrete field of science for this character in mind as dragging along an entire team of scientist would bog down the game too much as the force would really be having go at the pace of scientists. So Having one, perhaps two at most would be the reasonable limit.

Your idea on an "Occult Investigator" is actually a very good idea. I agree with Lusty on that. It wasn't an avenue I considered, and I can see a lot of potential. ;D 

Question! Are shapeshifters okay? I actually haven't seen much of the source material, but I wanna be a shapeshifter.

Hello Angie, and welcome.

One of my biggest concerns with shapeshifters of any type is that it can easily open a door for an OP character. While I understand Mystique was the example you used, as well as only shifting into "humanoid" characters. I'm going to have decline. My sincerest apologies on that.


Though, Low level Mages are acceptable.

We already have one but we could always use more. Will he be a soldier or a man of knowledge...kind of like Daniel Jackson from Stargate if that helps you get the picture more clearly.

No not yet, the positions still open.


No one beat you via PM, the spot was already taken, This RP has actually been around for a few months, it sort of slowed down to a crawl but we are picking it up again.

In the interest of my occult investigator... was magic and things of the preternatural nature a known thing before these portals opened?  Or, a better question, is the world as it should be as if this was present day reality but now the 'fantasy' of these things is now a globally accepted truth with the evidence right in front of them?
