Out of Character discussion

Post by Deepcrush on Thu Jun 06, 2013 8:57 am

This is for the general chit-chat.

And going with that, I think I've found a nice starting location for us. LV-742, an extremely valuable planet in resources for humans. Which means lots humans trying to gather those resources which means lots of Xeno's to breed which means oh so much prey for the Preds.

Are you cool with Dude having a .357 and a pump action 12 gauge?

Don't want to overdo it, he's a drifter/survivalist/hippy so he wouldn't need anything hardcore, just for defence and hunting.

Speaking of, what kind of wildlife exists in Alien?

Obviously Deep's got the final word, but I thought he meant that any human chars were going to be Colonial Marines. Standard small arms seem to be a pistol (an unmodified H&K VP70 in Aliens and a VP78 in one of the games (shoots like a VP70, looks like a Beretta 92F,) and the pulse rifle from the movie. However, there should be room for customization because the Colonial Marines from the movie have about 1/10th of the uniformity and regimentation of real jarheads; Hicks was allowed to carry is Ithaca pump from home, and Vasquez carried a 1911 in place of her issue sidearm (not to mention stealing firing pins and re-arming the smart guns in direct defiance of an order.)

Unless of course he allows you to be a miner or other resident of the planet, in which case... whatever.

Your restrictions are Pred, Alien or Human (also synthetics since they are apart of this universe).

Outside of that, feel free to go as far as you guys want with this. Pete wants to play a Synthetic that totes about with a smartgun.

Yeah, we've talked about it already. This is more of a challenge for me to RP as well, even though I'm closer to the Dude in real life then the soldier I was, its way to easy for me to RP a soldier.

Yup, we'll start off with a free write style and slowly build our way up with things.

First post is up, this is the opening for characters to make their intro for the RP. How you guys start your RP will determine how I run it. The overall story will then tie everyone together at some short point. If need be I'll direct or guide players to where they need to be for the stories to merge or workout.

Just a side note, if anyone's charters are going to have hidden story lines let me know so I can plan out the RP accordingly.

Interestingly, being a diabetic has cut down on my ice cream intake considerably. I've become quite accustomed to having two arms AND two legs.

Preds travel alone often enough so if you want to be alone then do so.  If you want to have some who land with you thats fine as well.  Remember this is starting as a free write to give everyone time to get into character.  I'll start putting the wrench in things once we are moving along.

I need more information - why are any of us here, for example? 

Are we all here for different reasons, and then end up working together?

You can be here for whatever reason you want.  There's millions of people on this world so it's not really limited in any way.

Seriously, a Predator with a death wish and a space hippy/drug dealer. Maybe you breed dogs?
