Battlestar Excalibur: An A/U Sandbox Battlestar Galactica Game
« on: February 18, 2016, 12:20:18 AM »




    The Cylons were created by man as a labor and military force to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies of Kobol.

    Eventually the Cylons turned on their human creators and the Cylon War ensued. Many lives were lost.
    In time an armistice was declared, and the Cylons left the Colonies to seek a homeworld of their own.

    The Colonials maintained an Armistice Station as a place where Cylon and Colonial representatives can meet in order to maintain diplomatic relations.
    However, the Cylons have never sent an ambassador. No one has seen a Cylon since the end of the Cylon War, over 40 years ago.

    Though they have vanished, the Cylons have not died, they have evolved.
    They look and feel human. There are many copies. And they have a plan.

    Humanity's children will return....
    Today



    This is an AU Battlestar Galactica game set around an all-original crew and ship.
    Freeform, sandbox with Episodes guided by the GM. Always Recruiting

    I'm interested in the tactical officer's role. I'm not sure I'll get a sheet to you tonight. Tomorrow's more likely.

    We're currently only looking for original characters. That having been said if you want to base your a character off one of the minor ones from the show I don't have an issue with that. Though they still need to be original as opposed to cannon characters who have somehow made it away from the show and into our story. If you need help please feel free to PM me and Aysande and I'm sure we can help hammer something out.... Obviously that goes for everyone if you've got a concept and would like to know if it will fit please feel free to ask.

    Oh that's perfectly fine. Face grabs from the show's minor characters are not an issue at all.

    Submitted my sheet. It's hard not knowing the history of the Excalibur and the relationship it has with my character (preferably, its location at the time of the attack).

    I keep thinking for some reason that the Excalibur was in orbit around Caprica when this game starts....

    I could be wrong, I might be thinking of something else. UZ will be by to let us know sometime soon, I bet. :)

    The day of the attack Excalibur was participating in a series of war games meant to test the training of the crew of the Argus, a Mercury class battlestar(same class as the Pegasus) and the newest in the fleet. The Excalibur was playing the part of a pirate force and as such was using older Mark II Vipers as it's primary fighter compliment. The Argus was tasked with tracking it down and eliminating it. In fact both battlestars were in the middle of simulated combat when they received word of the attack. They were then given orders to rendezvous with the rest of the fleet under Admiral Nagala at a point near Picon in preparation for a counter attack on the Cylon forces. The Excalibur jumped to the rally point and along with several other battlestars moved in to attack the Cylon basestars that were bombarding Picon. Needless to say the battle didn't go well for the colonials with the majority of the colonial ships mysteriously shutting down or suffering malfunctions just before the battle began. Excalibur was the only battlestar not to be effected the malfunctions not only left the fleet vulnerable but also left the large number of civilian ships that had been under the fleet's protection open to attack. With no other options Excalibur issued orders for the civilians to jump away to a new rally point, covered their escape, recalled any/all Vipers and Raptors who could still respond, and jumped after them. From that the course of events followed the timeline that's been laid out.

    If anyone has any further questions please feel free to ask.

    I'd be happy to create more dudes....

    But was wanting to give other folks a shot at those positions first. :)

    The RP is started, there are a few open posts. This isn't a guided group game where everyone is all together in one thread. There will be some that are like that, we call them episodes. Main events that affect the ship as a whole (and if your character isn't concerned by the event, they can skip out of it completely.) It's a sandbox, where players come up with their own plot. So feel free to make a character and hop in. :)

    We are definitely looking for more people.
