This is a set off two different ideas I've had when I was ill and I was thinking about Rping them but I only really have time for one.
A Stargate thread, (having not seen one yet) I don't know if anyone here is a fan, so we'll see but I plan on doing a from scratch one.
Set in the Stargate universe, a team of four or more (If I can get four, fingers crossed) travel to alien planet via the Stargate, They will encounter alien races, aggressive and peaceful and humans taken from Earth in the past to serve the Goa'uld, a race a parasites that dominate the Milkyway. The thread will start after the reactivation of the Stargate project after a Goa'uld attack on Earth, before being sent to recover the abducted personnel and/or remove the Goa'uld threat.
Technology is the same a current at this point other than the Stargate recovered from Egypt. Thread wont be based on the TV show with different characters and events to make it playable and more interesting to anyone that does watch the show.
Wiki at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Children_of_the_Gods_%28Stargate_SG-1%29
Since incident in Roswell in 1947 the government has indeed been aware of alien life, they have also become aware of people being abducted or Taken by these aliens. The Taken are often taken more than once to the point where it may almost become nightly, the reason why is unknown. Tho there are some who speak out about this they are not believed with UFO's and aliens being things of fiction and the people that do remember being take put in the same bucket as the crazies that make it up.
The players will take the role of a family each through the generations and their involvement with the aliens starting in 1940s too the 2000s. Most of the details will be given in thread. There isn't much contact between character for the first 30 years but later and a lot at end there will be brought together.
I will be taking the role of Meryl the stories narrator and the Haunt family, a key part of the military operation.

ooh. I love Stargate (SG-1 and the movie, not Atlantis). I think I might be interested if you do that one.
10/14/2007 12:35 PM
I vote for taken seeing as I know nothing about stargate
10/14/2007 2:25 PM
I'm more inclined to GM the Stargate one as Taken sort of does need Knowledge of the less well know, yet amazingly brilliant mini series that wikis don't give much information on.
You don't have to know anything really about Stargate as its not the TV events and the guys going through the gate don't know whats going to be there, for Stargate overview there is information on wiki and a website Gateworld that has anything you could think of.
I may still do the Taken one if there aren't more takers for Stargate, (I think SG1 is way better than Atlantis)

HELL I LOVE STARGATE. The movie was awesome and so is SG-1. Atlantis isn't a very good spinoff though. i'll vote for the stargate thread. but do we have to use just the P90's and Goa'uld weapons?

Looks like Stargate is a go then,
Right.... *Watches Stargate episode one* I am such a nerd.... (DVDs rule....)
Nope but it does have to be US standard issue weapons, the first episode they have M16s, light machine guns, but not P90s. I'm not a huge gun buff.
We haven't met the Goa'uld yet when the story starts or any alien race other than those on Abydos, so there isn't any alien weaponry yet or any aliens tho if you want to be Jaffa you can be as we'll have a sort of similar storyline as in we go to attack the Goa'uld.
Looks here for what was used, (so P90s weren't use till Season 4, I should know that)
So here goes a story, Through the quantum mirror from the TV show
The team on Abydos destroyed Ra's ship but alas they were still on board and all were lost, or so it seemed. Three days ago Ra and a group of Jaffa attacked the facility in Cheyenne Mountain where the Stargate was and took three hostages. A team as sent to investigate and they encountered Dr Daniel Jackson and a number natives, where they were informed about the threat, the gate and the new addresses. While readying to leave the team was attacked by the same Jaffa.
A second team was sent ten hours later to find all but one of the team dead as was Daniel Jackson and most of the natives. The losses made Stargate command consider closing the gate but after being reminded that the Goa'uld had ships a third team was set up to rescue those taken hostage and eliminate the thread.
Colonel Kawalsky is put in charge of the team,
Scientist, Archaeologist, Support personnels needed...
Name: Nataliya Langford
Appearance: She's 5'6", has black pony tailed hair, pale skin and brown eyes. She had as a thin appearance and doesn't look like she's cut out for any sort of military operation.
Personality: Slightly odd would nearly right to describe her, She doesn't deal well with people, preferring to lean about people than lived thousands of years ago. She is however understanding of other people even if she isn't interested in them and more inclined to a peaceful nature than to be violent.
History: Nataliya is the daughter of Bethany Langford and granddaughter of Catherine Langford, who helped found the Stargate project after her fathers death. Since she was 23 with an ancients history PhD she had worked with her mother on the Stargate for three years before it was activated by Dr Daniel Jackson. For the last year she has been working with Dr Samantha Carter on other gate addresses, before she was asked to join SG1.
She has worked in Egypt near the gate site and worked on other site in various cultures across the world, she speaks 13 languages and has knowledge of a wide range of historical cultures and events.

finally a character sheet
name: kyle hensly
appearance: 6'2" 220lbs with brown hair and blue eyes. He has a good muscle build and has a slight tan.
Personality: Kyle has a split personality based on the situation. When he is a seemingly safe environment he acts calm and cool and sometimes talks to much. but once the bullets start flying he starts barking out orders left and right. He tries to keep command of his team but still will listen to his CO.
History: Kyle has been in several campaigns and is most reconized for his service in the middle east. He has been awarded a few medals including the purple heart and the bronze star. He is well known by his superiors for his tactics and quick thinking. He was called to work on the SG-1 project after he was sent on a mission set up by an officer from the project so they could find suitable recruits for upcoming stargate missions. Kyles tactics impressed the officer enought to convince him to transfer Kyle to the project. Kyle hasn't been with the project long and is well trained in outdoor environments.

Name: Mike Harris
Appearance: Average height and build. He has striking blue eyes and dark brown hair that is just lshort enough to pass regulations.
Personality: Mike is a fairly likeable guy though he has a tendency to make lame jokes. He does well under pressure and follows orders easily.
History:Mike quickly worked his way up the ranks to the rank of Corporal then stopped as if he didn't want to advance anymore. He is an excellent shot and works good with a team. This teamwork is one of the main reasons he was selected for the Stargate project.

Both are fine other than there wouldn't be "upcoming missions" as the was only found the gate went other places three days ago.
I'll set up a thread tomorrow, I'm too shattered to do anything today.

Hope it heals up right.
10/22/2007 6:03 PM
owch really hope it heals up. The only other person i know that got hurt in a car related accident was one of my friends. This was a few years back and he decided it was a good idea to try to jump from a car. We were going like 5mph and he jumped out, landed, started to run then slipped and POW right into a telephone pole. He broke his collar bone but thats about it.
10/24/2007 3:37 PM
I know I said I would do it two days ago but, the pain killers kind of didn't go down so well but I'm back to normal now and feeling sort of light headed, I'm writing it now and will post it in the Sci-Fi section.
10/26/2007 4:50 AM
