WOW Mister Ugly, thank you so much for that detailed explanation! It was perfect, and I feel like I really don't have to know the Morrow Project inside and out to play in this world. Please do consider me still very interested - and I like the idea of the Agricultural team being woken, and/or perhaps the Medical & Civil (only because I know medical - self-indulgent thinking on my part I'd run with whatever you preferred). The espers sound interesting too - I'll be looking forward to seeing where you head with this, keeping my eye right here...
Well I aim to please and maybe should have went into more detail to start with. Live and learn.
So Undine, you know medical? Well you could easily fit as a veterinarian or even as a medic/EMT/Field doctor for an Agricultural Team. One thing I should point out though your character would be expected to defend herself and the team which includes lethal defense should that be needed. The reason is that the teams are gonna be in situations where they may very well have what others want and will try to take by force. The project does not expect a lovey dovey world but one of tough choices.
I wanted to expand some more on the project for you and any others that might read over this.
In 1974 Bruce Edward Morrow was able to convince a group of powerful and wealthy individuals that a full scale nuclear war would happen within their lifetimes. He already had plans for a workable cryogenic system and tests done were successful. By 1980 there were already a few teams tubed and some caches and equipment [so yes if those interested would like to be from a different era then the current it is very possible to have a team from the disco dance craze years
, or the big hair bands of the 90s years
Bruce disappeared for almost 14 months in 1986 and 1987 and returned with plans of for a compact fusion reactor and a working laser system. He also claimed to have averted the war that was supposed to have happened in 1990. One which would have led to the deaths of 80% of the world population. The problem was that the war was only averted, delayed not stopped. Time it seemed had it own plans and Bruce had seen an even worst war that started in 2017 one where, by the time everything had settled, 90-95% of humanity was dead. That with a higher technological standing the fall was even harsher.
So the project moved forward. Searching out and recruiting what was considered 'good' men and women to rebuild society. Good though did not mean saints it meant people that believed and cared. [An example I think fits would be Malcom Reynolds from 'Firefly'. A basically good man that does what is needed to survive and keep his 'family' together]
Used combat vehicles were obtained and refurbished to use different fuel sources. A vehicle was built that used a fusion reactor and designed to be the workhorse for the project. Other ideas were considered and either used or dropped.
The Project is built along these lines. There was hoped to be around 10000+ members by the time everything came apart.
The main base was called 'Prime Base' and built underground somewhere in the Midwest. Prime base was to house approximately 150+ people awake during the war so they could record everything and make determinations about the situation. Prime base also housed an extensive library of work and had 50 elite MARS members and heavy combat equipment in a bolt hold as well. The project was divided into regions. Each of these has their own main base that includes a full small hospital, full communications, an in house heavy MARS team, and a fully equipped science lab. Normally around 20 members would be tubed at a regional base. There are also full repair bays and extra reactors to replace those in the project vehicles. Region bases also have caches linked to them but they are much larger and could easy fully reequip several teams. Within a regions there would be 6+ recons teams, at least one full MARs team. maybe 2 science teams and numerous specialty teams like an Agro team.
Prime Base came through the war intact and a year or so after they started a colony nearby to begin rebuilding. No One knows exactly what happened next but a Madman named Krell, that seemed to have some link to the Project and followers within it, nuked the colony and let loose a bio weapon inside the base as well a doing heavy damage to it before fail safe systems locked everything down. This is why the wake-up signal was not sent out when it was supposed to be.
I hope this helps explain more Undine.
There is plenty more I can tell you like what the projects main weapons are that are issued to each member. How long you were trained and how tough it was? We will save that for a bit and see what develops from all of this
