ok this is the ooc part, ya well anyone can join this but you must be a part of the squad. Either a private, private first class, so on and so forth. You can give your self a nick name like OX or one of the ones i mentioned or you can make one up.

Not bad... not bad at all. Though I will point this much out, it would be helpful to add a bit more background information to this in the OOC section. from what I gathered it seemed to be a sort of "Dawn of the Dead" type story, or "28 Days"... I may attempt to join in on this one once I see how it's moving along.

background information hmmm.... Well were standing outside, so thing of desert around the air base...It will have alot more description after we get past this part(introduction section).

lol, that's not exactly what I meant. Surroundings are good, it helps get a player the 'feel' for the setting. You have to remember your our 'eyes and ears' for this rp, you have to be as descriptive as you can possibly be.

What I meant by background information was a "History" of sorts on the story you're trying to go with. You mentioned that it was along the line of "28 days" and "dawn of the dead"

but exactly which? as you know the "Dawn of the Dead" is about actual, dead, zombies... while 28 days is more along the lines living, infected humans.

08/03/2005 9:17 AM

Its more dawn of the dead, in the fact that the humans have been infected.

08/04/2005 5:16 PM

This looks interesting, since you said anyone could join, hope you don't mind me jumping on in.

Name: Jared "Ghost" Macdougall

Rank Private

Primary Specialty: Sniper

Secondary Specialty: Infiltration

Age: 24

Height: 5'9"

Hair Colour: Black

Weapon: Barrett m82a1 .50 Calibre sniper rifle and an M9 semi-automatic pistol.

Not much is known about Ghost, he doesn't talk much. From his accent he could be Southern, but he doesn't really say enough to be certain of it. He has been with the unit for just on 5 years, promoted twice, demoted twice, both times for one of his rare "speeches" once when he told an officer to go, to put it politely, have intercourse with himself, the other for refusing to call a higher rank his superior, saying he was not superior, only higher rank. He doesn't care, all he wants is the high ground and a clear shot.

On a side note, I have assumed all standard kit, just haven't spelt out each thing individually. Things such as grenades, a knife, webbing and pack etc.

Name: Hannibal "Scorch" Steele

Rank: Sergeant, specializing in weapons engineering

Age: 27

Height: 6'4

weight: 256 lbs

Hair color: Black

Eye color: Hazel

Weapons: M8 with M320 grenade attachment; dual Desert Eagle .50 caliber handguns; M3A2 rocket launcher; white phosphorous grenades; frag grenades; standard issue survival knife

The M8 is an experimental assault weapon that fires standard 5.56 mm rounds at various rates of fire; 5 rps (rounds per second) fully automatic, 3 rps burst, 1tps single shot. The scope is x4 rangefinder. Both Desert Eagles are loaded with hollowpoint bullets.

Background: Hannibal's first tour of duty almost got him dishonorably discharged and landed him in the brig for 6 months. While on a recon mission, his unit encountered a group of enemy troops, number 3 to 1 against his unit. He threw a few grenades and opened fire against his CO's orders, costing the lives 5 in his unit. "At least we killed them before they killed us, and others," was his defense.

With his CO dead, only the few remaining soldiers of his unit remained to testify, and they all claimed that, while Scorch was wrong to disobey orders, he did right to stop the enemy force.

After his stay in the brig, he was commisioned by the R&D department for the M-8 project before being ordered to board a plane without a mission briefing.
