[CENTER]Map of Stars: A Space Odyssey
After the Third War of the Patriarchs, the Royal Families of Du’Vall and Hammersill both subsided to their planets, with little to no army. Both families had fought over the worlds Korell, TwoDawn and Pola; all agricultural worlds in the Red Light Sector, but both families were ambushed by a legion of space pirates called the White Claw. They tore the families apart and liberated the two worlds for themselves. The Du’Vall’s throne was on the world of Daygodra and the Hammersill throne resided on Rylla. Both families were eventually hunted down and killed throughout the three worlds they fought for. Before the war the Galactic Federation—the central government in the galaxy—avoided all ties to the war waiting for the families to destroy each other. Now that the White Claw had made their move, it was time to get involved.
The Galactic Federation discussed the idea of invading the three worlds the families fought over, but a full scale invasion would erupt in war and the Federates weren’t interested, nor were they ready for a war. Word of an Operation to take these three worlds found its way into the Federate councils, and they green-lighted the idea. A covert assignment from the best starships pilots, soldiers, smugglers, mercenaries, techs and hired guns would prove most efficient in liberating these three planets for the Galactic Federation, while plucking apart the White Claw. The only problem was that these planets were previously unexplored.
Admiral Jasper Garland, of the 1st Federate Fleet sends out requests all over the galaxy for anybody with the prerequisites and the skills to take on this covert assignment. All military personnel were either patrolling the Federate capital on the city-world of Delirium, or assembling the fleet for the invasion of the Red Light Sector. Everyone is welcome, but only the best are accepted.

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE TO SENT IN REQUESTS, AND SORRY TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT MAKE THE CUT! MAYBE NEXT TIME!
THE OFFICIAL IC OF "MAP OF STARS: A SPACE ODYSSEY" WILL BE POSTED SOON!
I’d like there to be somewhat of a standard with how everybody posts. I’d like a basic template to be followed:
1. Clearly state where you are and who you are with.
2. Something must happen; no boring chatter. Either do something notable, or create some exposition for your character.
3. The GM will move things along if they stagnate, as my character is going to act as the “captain” of the crew, but that doesn’t mean everyone will always be in the group. Splitting up could and would be interesting.
4. Have fun with your characters! Match with other characters, get into fights and arguments; be dynamic!
ATTENTION: THERE ARE A FEW RULES THAT WE ARE ALL GOING TO FOLLOW TO KEEP THIS ROLEPLAY FUN AND ENJOYABLE TO EVERYBODY:
1. NO GODMODDING - NOBODY IS GOD.
2. NO RACISM, SEXISM, OFFENSIVE TOPICS TOWARD OTHER MEMBERS. IC IS DIFFERENT AND CAN BE DISCUSSED.
3. CURSING IS ALLOWED OOC & IC, BUT KEEP IT AT A MINIMAL.
4. MATTYMANTIS IS THE GM, ANY QUESTIONS GO DIRECTLY TO HIM AND ALL DECISIONS WILL END WITH HIM; KEEP IN MIND HE WILL NOT BE A PRICK, AND WILL ACCEPT MOST ANY IDEA, REALISTICALLY.
5. IF YOU DO NOT POST YOUR PART WITHIN 3 DAYS (EXCEPT WEEKENDS) YOU WILL BE SKIPPED AND THE ROLEPLAY WILL CONTINUE.
ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT THESE RULES, PLEASE CONTACT ME ASAP AND WE’LL WORK OUT ANY PROBLEMS YOU HAVE - I’M VERY FLEXIBLE.

Name: Dante Errell
Age: 32 Years Old
Occupation(s): Mercenary / Professional Pilot
Relationship Status: Single
Personality Traits: Being a mercenary, Dante has a very tough and gritty attitude toward everyone, especially other mercenaries. He’s got a very high self-esteem and shows it off whenever he can. Though his loyalties are to himself, he is selfless when it comes to innocents. As a mercenary, Dante will never under any circumstance kill an unarmed man, or an innocent; especially women or children. Under pressure he remains calm and collected, but has a short temper with many people. Easy to get along with, if you accept his gritty personality.
Physical Appearance: Dante stands at an average height, with a thick, athletic build. He has green eyes and short black hair which is spiked up. More often then not, he has a cigarette in his mouth, if not a cigar to celebrate a completed mission. He typically wears his black cargo pants, a utility belt with various tools on it like; extra ammo, binoculars, a few pipe bombs, a small medical kit and other small tools for his ship; a white under shirt with a dark brown leather jacket with a shoulder belt holding both of his pistols and a few more extra ammo packs.
Short Biography: Dante was born on Yuthura under a community of smugglers and bounty hunters. His father was a mercenary that disappeared when he was only six, and his mother was a nurse on Delirium that barely ever got to see him. To this day he has no idea whether or not his mother is alive, but is more worried about making ends meet, and avoiding the many space pirates he’s had chasing him for a long time. He makes most of his money stealing ships from corrupt politicians and crime lords.
Strengths: Advanced Marksman, Expert Pilot, Speed & Agility.
Weaknesses/Fears: Torture, Long distances (smoking), and melee/hand-to-hand combat.
