The basic overview would be that you're a soldier in a freshly founded regiment of the planet Veracia. The Veracian 1st Heavy Infantry sports tough armor with its standard infantry weapons using laser tech with some heavy weapons use plasma. Then, of course, there's good old flame throwers. Being a wealthy planet in commerce and technology, you have plenty of fancy gadgets such as personal communicators built into your helmet and an independent(albeit limited) oxygen supply for emergencies.
Veracia, and many planets like it, serve the The Alareian Coalition in her defense. You'll be shipped all across the galaxy, fighting the enemy wherever you find them. The biggest problem for the Coalition is The Eskovian Federation, a less advanced but more numerous faction with a knack for war while the Coalition does it as a must. Aside from them there are pirates, slavers, and other unwelcomed filth plauging the galaxy.
You'll control your own character, but I'll be the one controlling the overall RP. Godmodding is discouraged, and remember that for all your gear you all start fresh out of boot minus a handful of ex-PDF who were recruited as officers.
So, any thoughts/suggestions/questions?
