Hi anyone and everyone who's interested in joining! Thanks for glancing at the thread. While the title refers to a video game, the actual roleplay is completely distinct, with only the premise being based upon the rogue-like from Chucklefish.
It will probably be Extreme: Exotic, just because of the nature of the world, though.
The premise of the story is a cargo ship crash landing on an unknown planet. The causes of the crash are mysterious, but the results are not. All survivors on the ship are rendered unconscious on impact, though, thankfully, not for very long. The atmosphere of the planet is conducive to most life.
As the band of protagonists awaken, they discover that the world itself seems to be working against them. The dominant life forms on the planet, a primitive lizardman race known as the Lemurians, are already hostile, and mysterious machinations seem to be at work to prevent the intruders from ever leaving the planet again. The large chunk of the ship that lands with the majority of the group has provisions and other important supplies, but offers no way for them to leave the planet or get to safety. Luckily for them, among the ship's diverse and varied payload are teleporters, one of which may help them get off this godforsaken planet. Unfortunately, like the rest of the ship's cargo, the teleporters have been jettisoned out onto the planet.
Bravely, the protagonists must charge forward, guns blazing, camaraderie high, in an attempt to conquer this unknown world and make it off safely, though perhaps forever changed. Along the way, they may discover other unusual opponents, find cargo boxes with treasure or useful items, and dive deeper into the heart of an unforgiving science-fiction planet.
Character and Game Guidelines
As mentioned in a title, this is a science-fiction world and roleplay. However, I am open to many interpretations of science fiction, from Star Wars Lightsabers to Borderlands Slag weaponry. Be any species you want, within reason, and equip your character with anything they may be wearing or have on them at the time of the crash. Overpowered characters will be asked to tone down their power levels a bit. Underpowered characters will have their hands held and be given friends.
The game will be guided and GM'd by yours truly, and I'd love a Co-GM if this picks up any sort of interest at all! The plot will revolve around the characters exploring the world at their own pace and timing; they can decide to go out to search for teleporters immediately, or stay back at the site of the crash to establish a settlement first. There will be certain key locations that events, whether combat or sex or talking, can take place in. A timeline will be loosely enforced. One post a week will probably be the minimum to stay in the game safely.
The setting doesn't seem very conducive to sex, but don't worry! There will most likely be a side thread where all sex scenes can occur with abandon. How, you may ask, will sex scenes occur in such a forbidding scenario?
Against the backdrop of gritty science fiction, danger, and action, we have characters, who, at heart, are still people. Afraid, perhaps, threatened by the unknown pressing against them from all sides, but still people. People have needs, lusts. Who better to click with than the one who saved your life in the first few days on the planet? What better driving force for sexual interaction than hungry desperation? Take off those suits and fuck like rabbits to forget about the situation, if only for a few hours. While the world seems to be against them, there are a few lovely little pockets...who knows which of these flowers may be an aphrodisiac? Adventuring is sure to leave our protagonists filthy; the nearby lake surprisingly lacks danger, a small pocket of peaceful privacy in an otherwise tense situation.
As GM, I'll try my best to provide locations and items (from the cargo ship) that can help facilitate sexual interactions, but it's up to the players themselves to slam their characters together in hot passion, driven by primal needs.
