I would like my character to be on the "good" side. The more I think of it the more it makes sense to me.
If Chreestafer wants to be second main character, that means it looks like you might be first, Jarod! You might be the next Heero Yuy!
Okay - plot details. Just to make things clear, Chreestafer, this will still technically be YOUR RP thread. I'm just... helping a bit. I'm not trying to step on any toes.
*Note: should you approve, feel free just to copy/paste the following to use as the opening for the IC thread*
Year: After Colony 232 (Thirty-six years after the events of Endless Waltz in AC 196)
The Earth Sphere Unified Nation has lived in peace for over three decades after the Mariemaia Incident. All weapons were destroyed on Earth and in space, and the self-defense arm of the UN, the Preventers, have kept aggressive conflicts at bay.
Two years ago, in the autumn of AC 230, the city of Oceana in the L3 space colony was completely razed in a mysterious and devastating disaster. Although officially unconfirmed, the source of the tragedy was popularly believed to have been the work of Mobile Suits. Unofficially, the few surviving reports of the incident from Preventer defense forces claim to have been “wiped out by an invincible force of only one or two enemy units”. No further incidents were reported since that time; the alleged perpetrators having vanished without a trace. Even so, a fearful UN allowed strictly regulated production of weapons once again, in anticipation of possible future strikes.
Time passed, with no signs of further catastrophe. This only served to unsettle the increasingly paranoid government, as it was clear the destruction of Oceana was a deliberate message. Finally, without warning, another attack was launched against a fleet of supply ships from Earth six months ago. Since then, there have been numerous small-scale hit-and-run attacks of terror against a wide range of innocent targets. All attacks were executed with extreme speed and precision, and characterized by mass destruction. The Earth Sphere Unified Nations were forced to retaliate, but with little success due to the lack of weapons. This prompted a top-secret project to reconstruct the legendary Gundams as a desperate means of defense.
It was vital to ensure the project’s secrecy, lest the Gundams be targeted by the unknown aggressors. So, a small splinter group of the Preventers, only consisting of a skeleton engineering crew led by the aged original Gundam pilots, initiated OPERATION: SAVIOR without the knowledge of any outside party. They split into hideouts across the Earth Sphere to begin working on the means to save the world once again.
That's what I imagined to be the sort of "prolouge", the backdrop for the story. What do you think? I will get around to posting info on the attacking force (and thus my character) later.
