How will the UNSC find out about the hidden ship? Does the covenant blurt it over the jammers after they're all cleared? Will there soon be some sort of clues that lead toward that information?


Been really distracted with work and a new bf, haven't had much time to play online.

 @Golden Touch: Awesome! I look forward to reading it! :D

@Ashia: Yeah, I'm thinking that they'll be so caught up in the excitement of finding a new artifact, that they'll just blurt it in the open so that all their forces go to that spot to defend it. I'm sorry about your breakup but, I'm glad you've found companionship again btw.

Rawr. Personally, while I find the covenant blurting it out to be possible, I'd find it more feasible if UNSC High Command figures it out on their own, or at least piece enough of it together to at least guess as to why the covenant also happen to be around New York, that said UNSC High Command would either want whatever the covenant are looking for destroyed or otherwise denied to them at all costs- Humanity is all but fighting a losing war here and they can't take any chances, this is something they will immediately put a do or die stamp on regardless of the innumerable possibilities, which means that any free personnel hanging around, what there is of them and how much of them there are, will likely be ordered to converge on that area ASAP to either defend or assault the area to deny the covenant access to anymore advanced technology, with a possible very secondary mission to pop in a few techies and/or any free spartans available, loot or determine if the place would be worth trying to keep.

Just my two cents so far. I'm off to catch up on reading the story so far- I imagine there would be a lot since the last time I had checked (shortly after I had last posted).

That's a good point Vengurd. I'll put in some support for our group and re-establish contact with them when we get everyone together in the regroup and replenish part coming up in the thread.

Could I get a partially staffed med center near our over-all goal of getting together? One, it would allow Patric to at least get the help he needs to come back online and two, it would be a fairly useful area considering just about everyone is now injured to some extent. We might be able to find a machine shop near-by with a few spare military pieces laying around, that would allow the company to jury-rig up a couple of rides.

 Also. Lets have someone either destroy the second jammer already, or at least mark it. Someone finding a small group of Marines, Civvies, or ODSTs would be something too.

 Just a couple of suggestions for anyone who needs them!

I disagree. Controlling two teams shouldn't hold one back. If Shana gets stuck, all I have to do is switch over to Jacobs and figure it out. His team isn't a main group so I don't feel I need to balance the two out, but I do feel bad for not doing so anyways.

Hey guys, sorry I haven't posted yet. Things have picked up again IRL. I'll be posting this weekend as I think I'll be having my Sundays free once again. Just lost a cleaning account, I was cleaning two Hair Salons at the mall on Sundays with my brother, on top of the two jobs we do all week. *Sighs* I'm gonna miss the money but, not the work.

Anyway, I should have more energy for posting, which is good :)

How's everyone doing btw?

Hey guys, I'm afraid I have some bad news.

I'm not quitting the thread, so relax but, I received news that a friend of mine died early Monday morning of a heart attack, we're having a funeral for her this coming Sunday afternoon, and that unfortunately is just the tip of the ice berg.

I also have two friends with cancer that aren't expected to live much longer, and a cousin of one of my friends that's in the hospital in critical condition because he was shot in the mouth by his room mate. The fact that he's even alive is a miracle but, they're struggling to keep his breathing on his own. Though, that's mostly because of the ineptitude of the doctors. Latest I heard on that subject was that they're going to try and raise money to fly him to Denver, Colorado to a specialist hospital. I'm just praying that they can get the money and that he survives the trip.

So, like I said I'm not quitting the thread, you guys are great and I want to continue to rp with you but, I'm going to need a little time to process everything, and grieve. It's all been so sudden and fast that I haven't really done that yet. I'm still in shock at how fast everything hit this month. It'll probably hit me during the funeral.

Another thing I'm struggling with is my situation in life, like the fact that I'm still single and soon to be 27 years old and still living with my parents...though to be honest that's bugged me for awhile now as Ashia, Hunter, and Vengurd can tell you, lol. And now before I ramble on about something else I'll end this here.

I just wanted to let you guys know what was going on, and why I haven't posted yet. Please don't wait on me to post and just skip me for now. I'll post when I'm ready and more emotionally stable.

Hey guys, sorry for posting before requesting. The format of elliquiy is a bit weird for me so I wasn't sure if I could just join when I felt like it, or if I needed to ask someone. I wouldn't have thought to look for a roleplay request here in the non-adult sandbox forum, so sorry again!

Feel free to remove my post, and I'm sorry everyone is dealing with bad things in real life :(

Generally a VERY good idea to ask and apply with a small character app first before posting regardless where you are- some people generally don't care either way but its one of those common courtesy things that is pretty universal. Not saying it is not okay, but I'm not saying it is either. We're a pretty slow going Rp that has been going on for a very long time now so if you have issues with long waiting times I wouldn't recommend joining, but if you don't mind the waiting, then let me be the first to say welcome to Shot in the Dark and thanks for being interested!

 With that, I'll go take a look at your post, then I'll edit this one here to let you know if it looks good to me. Gladiator is the starter though so it would ultimately be his choice.

Hey guys, thanks for being patient with me as I dealt with the death of my friend. I'm still not completely over it but, I'm getting there, it's just gonna take time. Good news though, I've been roleplaying a little with Ashia over text, just a small back history story for our characters to get me back into the groove. It's helped alot :)

So, consider me back aboard everyone :)

So, I'll read everything over and then post with Sling and Gladiator.

Avt2 as Vengurd said already, thanks for your interest :) In the future though, as Vengurd also mentioned, it would be a good idea to look up the starter of the roleplay you're interested in before writing anything in their thread, regardless of whether it's an easy going rp site or an anal one, lol. Just helps to keep everyone friendly. Thank you for your sympathies also, that's very kind of you.

If you'd please give me a rough character profile, I'll look it over. You can either post it here or PM it to me, your choice. Please keep in mind that our group in the thread have been there for a while, and that everything that happened  there will influence your character unless you have a good reason why it shouldn't.

Btw, I have read your post and it's good, go ahead and keep it up! Consider yourself on active duty soldier! :D

Hey Gladiator, thanks again and sorry everyone for very rudely inserting myself!

I saw your PM first and responded to your questions there, and only then checked here, so I'll get that character sheet to you ASAP.
