9 Marines
Whatever you feel like adding!

I would like it if you could E-mail me before jumping in, and fill me in on what you want to do, who you want your character to be, etc. If i'm not on, check to see if Joeymadcow or Orion is on, and the'll tell you what's goin on. Remember, this is for all of us, so feel free to write what you like, just give me a head's up on your ideas, and we'll work on it from there.

Thanks for joining Abs and SoaringEagle. Eagle, your good where you are, and Abs, how bout we start you on a abandoned Athena, after being shipwrecked with space pirates... Now you're all alone...

We'll meet up with you after we land.

any problems, just post them right here!

01/29/2005 5:17 PM

I'm here, a little startled at actually being asked to join a thread.....so many sci-fi characters to pick from, which to use......:D

01/29/2005 7:27 PM

Glad to have you aboard Avenging Angel! :)

01/29/2005 10:06 PM

I'm still a bit confuzzled about what's going on and what the whole premise of the thread is, but willing to try nonetheless.....I don't suppose anyone can give me a basic run down of what this is supposed to be about? :P And what all races are there? (I only ask since there seem to be cat people and kangaroos running around:D)

01/30/2005 9:22 AM

Well, this is about a crew of 9 going on a scouting mission to figure out if the planet is habitable. Very lowman's job, it's looked down upon by just about everyone in the military... Anyway, they leave, and Roy and Joe discover they have waaayy to many weapons for this to be just a scouting mission.

Continuing, en route they discover one of thier alien crewmates is actually the daughter of a very important Catarle(cat-like alien) senitor...and are attacked by a ship full of them.

Now, hopefully, there's another story forming on Athena 2655 (or just Athena) about a lone human shipwrecked with pirates...

And as for alien races in the alliance? Just about anything goes as long as it's not too fastastic, I'll let you know, but seeing as we have a super-cat and a kangeroo I'll give you a lot of leanway :D

Oh yeah, the planets supposed to be "uninhabited", and reading the first post will give you the basic backround on Roy, plus the OOC's will fill you in with everyone else.

Again, thanks for joining, and have fun! :)

01/30/2005 8:35 PM

Okay, I think I want to play a Catarle and a marine, if that's alright with you. (what can I say, I like cat-people;))

Race: Human
Gender: Male
Age: 17
Hair: Blonde-brown, short and spiky-messy (anime hair!:D)
Eyes: Blue-green
Skin: Somewhat tan
Height: 5'9


Daniel is an engineer on the Athena, having decided to be an engineer instead of joining the military. He's a coward, but very good with anything mechanical.

Name: Kysh'Ahra Kysh'ahn (Keesh-aura Keesh-ahn)
Race: Catarle
Gender: Female
Age: 26, almost 27, though she'd never admit it
Hair: Silver/grey, short
Eyes: Yellow
Skin: Dark
Height: 5'7


Kysh'Ahra is a minor secretary in the Catarle government. Unfortunately, she messed up severely on some filing work, and has been sent out to the border to retrieve the senator's daughter as punishment, which she is none too happy about.

01/31/2005 4:02 AM

01/31/2005 8:14 AM

Glad you could make AvA. Oh god your Catarle! *slaps head* just what I need another cat calling me "hoppy":D

Mwahahahahahahahaha-! *cough**gasp**hack**WHEEZE*
Can I get a glass of *gaspwheeze* water??

Okay, I read through the thread, so none of the marines are on the Athena anymore?

01/31/2005 9:34 AM

*hands glass of water*

All the marines are headed down to Athena. We were just on the Illiad.

Sorry about my confusingness (is that a real word¿). I'll try to seem less crazy.

01/31/2005 5:56 PM

All the marines are headed down to Athena. We were just on the Illiad.

Lemme get this straight: all the marines are heading off of the Catarle ship Illiad back to their ship, Athena?

02/02/2005 4:54 AM

Not quite AvA OUR ship is the Illiad, we dont know the name of the Catarle ship, and Athena is the planet thingy, least I think.

02/02/2005 11:57 AM

yup. More or less.

02/03/2005 6:00 PM

Sorry for being gone so long. I had to much to do so I couldn't come and post. Though I'm back now. By the way.... You guys post too much lol. ;)

02/04/2005 4:27 PM

Oh yeah i forgot to ask what is the setting like in Athena?

02/04/2005 4:37 PM

actually its kind of an inhabited planet that the crew of our ship The Illiad, thought was not, so if you are a bartender I think you might have to be a bad guy but i dont know Ill have to email Slayer and talk to him about it.

02/05/2005 6:43 PM

Well, i was thinking along the lines of you being scared out of your mind when you find everyone, except you, was killed on your frontier town. The Catarle come and take you prisoner, and they start getting killed one by one. It'll make sense, i promise!!

02/05/2005 7:42 PM

Well hi folks! Orion suggested I pop over here & read this thread. When I asked what the setting was, he said it was from your crazy & demented minds. Ha, no kidding! ;) If there's room for me I'd love to jump in - but I'm not sure where you are or where you're going! Are you all together on the ship, or are some of you still riding around on dinosaurs with mohawks?!? Are you about to land on the planet? Let me know where this is going and I'll make up something crazy to jump in with. ;)

02/05/2005 8:12 PM

Youre killing me SHal:) I stood up to read your post and now I have to type;) anyway here it is:

Our ship the Illiad was sent to see if a planet called Athena was inhabitable(supposedly its uninhabited) we get ambushed by a Catarle armada after Libra's character Yuusei reveals herself to be cat loyalty. Me, Roy,Joe,andLibra fight our way to the surface but are split up in the process through random events. Abs character is blind but he hasnt posted in awhile so...stay away from him for now, Soaring serves under Roy and the two of them have reunited. My character Max has found a lovable dino creature named Rikkits who has telepathic powers. Yuusei has aslo found a creature and called it Malaria and now they are running across the wastelands of Athena. Joes character has been captured by the Catarle along with his pet golfish Dino. thats about it if youre still confused mail me, now if youll excuse me, im gonna go cry cuase of the corparal tunnel I just got from typing this:) later

02/06/2005 8:58 AM

now if youll excuse me, im gonna go cry cuase of the corparal tunnel I just got from typing this

Corparal tunnel? O-o

02/06/2005 11:49 AM

Corparal tunnel? O-o

think severe finger pain;)

02/06/2005 11:55 AM

Hmmm, well that clears it up a little. ;) Maybe I could be a prisoner on the Catarle ship (I'm assuming they're pretty hostile to everyone, and not just to people harboring runaway brides!), that somehow runs into Joe's character & then we escape together. Will that work?

02/06/2005 12:08 PM

sounds good afterward ill meet up with you and Joe

02/06/2005 2:21 PM

Corparal tunnel? O-o

think severe finger pain;)

02/08/2005 12:25 PM

Welcome Yuna_summoner! THis is a very loose thread, i'm not very strict...About anything :D anyway, just wanted to ask to put your basic character description here, and tell you to have fun with this. It's a great beginners and experts thread, a very middle ground area.

02/08/2005 9:50 PM
