It has been many years since the terribly destructive war between the Robotech Defense forces of Earth and the Zentradi Armada, whose orbital bombardment nearly wiped out all life on the planet. Despite many difficult trials and tribulations, some of the Zentradi population, enamored with Human culture and the prospect of a life without war, were brought in and some mixed with the humans they had once fought. While others left to find their own path in the galaxy, or join the voyaging warbands that travel through space, wanting to continue fighting endlessly in space.
Since then many things have happened on Earth, new discoveries, technologies and even new foes. The Invid, a savage and unrelenting insec like race have conquered the earth. Their occupation has forced most of the Robotech Defense Forces and people of Earth into subservience. Those who did not surrender were destroyed with only a few resitance Forces left, and so it continued for a while, under ground rebels striking at the Invid wherever they could, hoping one day for a chance to truly fdo some damage, especially at their main hive at Reflex Point, where their queen resided.
Many thought that nothing would change and eventually the Invid would wipe out the pesky rebels, until an Assault down in South America, an entire town destoyred and nearby Invid forces were destroyed. Their outpost completely cleaned out of spare parts and protoculture power stocks. In a move that none, not even the Invid, had expected. Zentraedi raiders, tired of fighting others of their kind in space over dwindling resources, made a visit to Earth with some hoping to join Humanity as their ancestors had or to score some vital supplies. Instead they find the world occupied and no one to object to them stealing supplies. No united RDF forces to stop them and the Invid too occupied maintaining control of Earth and draining its resources to care about venturing out to chase the Zentraedi.
Word quickly spreads among the outsiders and raiders out in space and Zentraedi raids become more common, continuing on around the world until a surprising turn happens. A single Zentradi mercenary ship
arrives and lands near an old RDF resistance base up in Alaska. With offers of working with the resistance to make strikes against the Invid and work with the rebels, in exchange for supplies and repairs to their ship and equipment.
The Zentraedi live to fight and wage war, so working as Mercenaries comes natural to them and they are not as adept at repairs and retrofitting technology as the humans, so the new RDF and Zentraedi alliance seems to be a mutually beneficial relationship.
This rp needs both GMs and Players, it will take place in the Robotech continuity so we can have Veritechs and Destroids and such. I know that the Robotech series was a mish mash of different Animes but its what many of us grew up with and its what made me an anime fan.
So, im just tossing this out here and hoping others bite. Players should be able to play as Zentraedi or as Humans. I wouldn't mind being a Co-GM so if anyone wants to be the main GM il happily help them flesh things out.
My own Character:
Kalista Zurkan, Zentradi Mercenary.
