Repopulation(Interest check: Light)
« on: April 05, 2010, 08:44:01 AM »
I assembled this idea with a friend in the past, but it never panned out. The basic premise is that aliens discover the earth, unfortunately they discover that it is also soon to be horribly destroyed. Having no time to evacuate the population, they send a 6-12 scouts out to random points on the planet, with instructions to pick up a genetically diverse group of men and women, likely with more women than men, that they judge to be the fittest to continue the species. Now, I'm not looking for the usual cast of professional athletes and body builders.

These enlightened aliens are likely to select for intellectual success, and I'd be looking for a group of 18-30 year olds, filled with doctors and scientists alongside college students and young army officers. None of the cast are likely to be of the same race, either, plucked from all over the world. The characters we'd thought up included a russian officer, and a sexy ebony doctor from south africa. I encourage creative ideas.

This diverse group, plucked from earth in its dying moments, would be transferred to a tropical area of a new planet, and, after taking a few samples, instructed to repopulate their species. They'd be given a free hand in developing their new civilization, with aliens only stepping in if they are in danger, so the game would involve them setting up some sort of civilization. I'm starting this thread to get an idea of interest, and see if enough people have cool character ideas to set this up.

As am I. From what I have just read, the first thing that comes to mind is a mix of the Lost series and The Day The Earth Stood Still movie. If I were given a choice of what character to play as, I think I may go as one of the aliens.

..... Jellyfish......  :D

I like the Russian soldier, a hardliner with a distinct survival instinct.

Well, I was thinking the aliens would make themselves scarce, with most of the game focusing on the characters making their way in their tropical paradise.

I'm interested in this one as well.  I could see playing a College student, or an american soldier have to think about it a little more though

I'd be interested in this, could play a female doctor or student from scotland perhaps?

Scottish accents are cool!

Another really cool aspect of the game is all the accents flying. I'm hoping to get 3-4 ladies interested to 2-3 men. Poor men aren't quite as necessary to have en masse for repopulation.

I'm interested. Wouldn't mind playing a centrial american scientist, or perhaps a soldier from that area. But it seems as if there are already going to be quite a few soldiers. Is there any specific info you'd want for a character?

*Taps chin in thought*

I'll be keeping an eye on this to see how this evolves.
If I join, I'll toss in a Dutch girl. Bit torn about the study/ profession still.

Yeah I'm still working on a profession myself.  I am going to be an American I know that for sure.  I'm leaning towards a survivalist.  Someone of a similar arch type to John Locke from the TV series Lost.  Perhaps he was also a writer of the subject. 

either that or a Marine still thinking though

I think we're a bit overloaded on males at the moment, I'm afraid we're probably not going to fit everybody. I was thinking at most 4 males, really. I don't want the group bloating out of control and getting unwieldy.

I don't know. I'll probably run applications and pick the most interesting/ diverse group, depending on how much interest I get.

I really can't come up with a profession or study area. Technology is what theNetherlands is known for, but that's so.. dull in my eyes. Would Art be a good field? I know it's not very science-y. *ponders*

Sciencey is not required. I just wanted a tropical paradise of students, doctors and artists, rather than a bunch of musclebound jocks, which is rather common here. Anything an enlightened alien race would find valuble can qualify. Creativity is invited! You might even have a starving artist or sculptor who is undiscovered and brilliant, whose strange style appealed to to the aliens. Just musing!

Edit: and on pregnancy, It's likely to happen, though I don't expect us to center on it. I don't think anyone would start pregnant, either.
