A Galaxy on the Brink of War...
A girls wedding day... Naturally, she's giddy and excited, nervous and terrified. Is her hair okay? Does the dress make her look fat? Does Daddy still approve of her fiancÚ? Maybe she discovered a pimple on her cheek and started freaking out... I wish I could've had that luxury. But no, I just had to get married to the creep from Raximotoriphalupagorious. I'm not even in love with him, quite the opposite really... But then again, I guess its what I get for having the rotten luck of being a Princess.. Yep, that's me. The red-head in the poofy white dress, trying her hardest to stay neutral about this whole stupid marriage. And before you ask, yes, they're real. Quit staring.
Normally I don't do this sort of thing, but you should probably know just what the hell's about to happen.... Believe me, I didn't think it was real either. You see, I'm not your typical Disney bull-shit Princess, I'm the real deal. That means handling politics, managing the military, attending certain events that are governed by royals, all that fun stuff... But unlike most of those pompous bitches who strut around all day and cry every time an animal get a splinter, I'm a realist. That means, I don't follow the lead of these other chicks, I do what I want. They spend all day chasing their prince's, and why shouldn't they? Those dudes as just as hollow as they are. But me, I have my eyes set on somebody else, but that's not the point. The point is, I'm a bit of a flirt, a prankster, a dash mischievous and maybe just a bit aggressive.. Well, A LOT aggressive. Especially when it comes to sports. I'm just competitive, I guess.
So anyways, back to what's happening.. Oh, right, the Xenos. Okay, so I'm walking down the isle with Tyrugal the 206th, wanting so desperately to take the blaster I carry around with me at all times and just blow my fucking brains out. I'm looking around for a bit and I see this thing.. But not before I see that cute boy, which brightens my day. God, he's so oblivious to me. Its adorable. Oh, right, back on track. So this thing... It was strange, like something from the distant past or far off future. A robot of some kind... But it was alive. I could see exposed organs and a heart beating away underneath the metal exterior, almost like some sort of demented Cyborg. But why was it just siting there, staring at us... at me? I didn't have time to dwell on it, but I wish I had... Because that hunk of metal was the reason my wedding was interrupted, why my life was thrown into chaos... And why I came face to face with the source of the outbreak, with nothing but a blaster and a group of people to help me out..
In short, shit hit the fan really quickly.
So, this is the story of not just a Yet-To-Be-Named Space Princess (who will NOT be played by me personally, so her role is up for grabs), but also the story of a group of unlikely heroes who will wind up discovering the biggest secret the galaxy has kept hidden, then destroy it before the monstrosity of its being spreads to other worlds.
I have ideas for this roleplay about how it will play out. The first thread will be comprised of the introduction of our characters and the main problem, but mostly deal with kick-starting the plot. After that, the other threads will consist of advancing the plot and the arrivals on different planets or new missions that the team carries out. Now then, I'm looking for a relatively small group if about 3-5 people, not including myself. There will be no specific "main" character, but the Princess will play a heavy part in the RP, which is why I'm looking for somebody who's up for the challenge. If you'd like to apply for her, just post below or PM me and I'll answer any questions you may have.
She isn't complete at all, except for one image that I gathered for her. If you need any inspiration for her personality or character type, think of something along the lines of a spunkier and slightly flirtatious version of somebody like Ellen Ripley or Samus Aran: deep down, she's truly just a badass and looks good doing it.
Here's the image I found for her, but don't think you're stuck just using this. If you have one that you think is better, just send it to me via a PM and I'll check it out. Again, its your character not mine, so you really have the final say. I just need to look it over as the GM is all :3
Anyways, there needs to be a small group of people, ranging from Aliens (please keep them relatively humanoid) to Cyborgs/Droids, and a few Humans here and there. Its good to have some variety in a group who's main goal is to protect the world from an evil empire and a parasitic monstrosity seeping through planets faster then thought possible :3
Anyways, post below if you'd like to hear more. This ideas still in the early stages of development, so many things can be altered/changed as more planning occurs. Feel free to ask any questions and I'll do my best to answer them!! ^^
