Alright, I'm looking for Halo fans in particular or sci-fi buffs, doesn't really matter to me.
The story is that we are tasked with destroying a covenant ship that's hovering over New York, on the opposite side of the world where most of the Halo series takes place. Which is Africa believe it or not, lol. We along with about 20 other troops, containing Orbital Drop Shock Troopers (ODST for short), marines and 3 other Spartans. I'll be playing as one Spartan.
We drop from our ship and are on our way to the Covenant ship, when it jumps into slipspace (basically hyperspace), and sends all of us ofcourse and we crash, split from our teams. To make matters worse, the Covenant jam our coms and cut communication off from our ship.
From then on our top priority is recovering whoever we can, finding workable transport to the ship and catching the Covenant ship that escaped. So, lots of action, possible romances and alot of character development along the way.
There's no limit to the number of players btw, so anyone that wants to, is welcome to join.
Below I've taken the liberty of finding some pics of the different character classes, and I can explain each class if need be. If you would rather have another websites word though, please look at Halopedia. Here's the link: http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/Main_PageCOMS
all the information below in respects to coms was taken from here: http://halo.wikia.com/wiki/COMTEAMCOM
Teamcom is used in this thread for public use inside the helmet for communicating with your team, the number of people you're able to communicate with on this frequency is unlimited. Otherwise I just have my spartan switch the coms to "audio" to be heard. Normally though, TEAMCOM is used for communicating with a small group of soldiers, like a Fireteam
which I believe is around 6 to 8 people. But I've read in some Halo novels where Master Chief used TEAMCOM to communicate with a larger number of people, hence the unlimited use for this thread.SQUADCOM
ls used to communicate with your squad, 4 people. Usually used by ODST squads, or Spartan squads. SQUADCOM: Frequencies reserved for use among small units in a specific area. Squadcom has a very small range, it is usually intended to be broadcast over short distances. Usually, radio-communications that take place in Halo: Combat Evolved occur over a SQUADCOMTACCOM:
Short for Tactical Communication. Frequencies reserved for sharing of information between small units on the battlefield. While audio communication is not possible on TACCOM, one team member can upload images, NAV points, and sensor information into the HUD of other members of their team. Similar to SQUADCOM.SATCOM:
Short for Satellite Communication. Frequencies reserved for communications with orbiting satellites, sometimes to relay information to orbiting ships, sometimes for communicating with people or units in another section of the planet. Note that COMSat stations must be in orbit in order for SATCOM to be usable. HIGHCOM:
Short for "High Command", this band is used by and to contact the ranking officers of space ships.E-BAND:
Emergency broadcast channel. Little-used public frequency. After the fall of Reach, Anton-044 used the E-Band to transmit a signal of Oly Oly Oxen Free. It was also used by the UNSC forces on Onyx to notify Lord Hood's Reinforcements of their position. Used as an emergency COM Channel.
UNSC Marine: http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=Halo+UNSC+Marine&go=&form=QBIR#focal=5bb9fc0805e125a45ea387fd8ad3159e&furl=http%3A%2F%2Fi212.photobucket.com%2Falbums%2Fcc66%2FDarkRose167%2FHalo%25203%2Fth_H3_Zune_Marine.jpg
These are the backbone of United Nations Space Command (UNSC) and are always on the front line.
ODST Trooper: http://files.bungie.org/odst_assets/images/ODST_DarkPainting.jpg
These are Orbital Drop Shock Troopers, also called "Helljumpers" because they're usually the first into a battle zone, and their missions have a high death ratio. They drop from a frigate, or a larger space ship, in a vehicle called a Single Occupant Exoatmospheric Insertion Vehicle (SOEIV) into a battle zone. It's commonly said that in order to make it as an ODST, you have to be more than a little insane.
Spartans are the UNSC's secret weapon, they take on the highest of risk missions. They are in all actuality children that have been cloned and experimented upon (the clone is sent back to the parents, and more often than not, is defective and dies soon after) to be near seven feet tall and be the strongest, and the fastest in the UNSC's arsenal of soldiers. There are currently 3 classes, or Marks, of Spartans.
Mark 1 is extremely rare most never even survived and if they did they most likely died in combat during the Insurrectionist Wars.
Mark 2 is also rare but probable to play, they were created during the "Innie" Wars but, were recommissioned for the start of Covenant Wars. These are the largest of the Spartans and none of them are shorter than 7 feet tall.
Mark 3 is an improvement upon the Mark 2's and are more human sized tho most of them never get below 6 feet tall because of the growth hormones they're given.Human Weapons
BR55HB SR Battle Rifle
MA5B Assault Rifle
M392 Designated Marksmans Rifle (DMR)
M41 Surface to Air Rocket Launcher
