With the upcoming Pacific Rim blu-ray release, I figured this was the ideal time to try and start a Pacific Rim RP.
A little fluff for the setting:
No one thought it was over when they dropped the nuke into the Breach. At least no one with any sense, they had created a window of time to prepare, that was it. No one had any clue how big of a window it was, but the PPDC was kept intact, and many of the Jaegers in Oblivion Bay were restored to functionality within a year after closing the breach. It wasn't long before new jaegers started being produced either. Many non-Pacific countries even producing Jaegers, and building shatterdomes. The Jaeger Program's biggest development didn't come until 2030 though. A system was finally introduced that allowed a single pilot to control a Jaeger safely. It was still an incredibly difficult feat, possibly even more so than with two pilots, but it was implemented in nearly all Jaegers by 2032 due to the incresed performance of a single pilot.
Of course, eventually when people started thinking the Kaiju weren't coming back, everything started getting downsized, workers layed off, even some Jaeger pilots had left after ten years without an attack. That was when it happened, almost as if they knew Earth was at it's weakest. Two attacks, only an hour and a half apart. The first at Ajaccio, Corsica at 3AM GMT July 12th 2035, a Category IV Codenamed: Blackvein. The city was completely wiped out by the time the two responding Jaegers arrived from the new Lisbon Shatterdome, while successfully defeating the Kaiju, both jaegers were severely damaged in the attack when it revealed an ability to shoot spines at it's foes. The second attack was at Toamasina Madagascar, a category IV kaiju named Hammerfiend. This second attack met with much less success, in part because the pilots at the Capetown Shatterdome were already ready when the Kaiju made landfall, and able to respond much quicker. But nonetheless, it set the entire human race reeling once more.
The Kaiju are back.
So yeah, any interest?
