Title: Melody
Post by: Siege-Loli on February 12, 2017, 04:43:47 am
Terra. For a majority of human's small time as a sentient species it has been our cradle, keeping us warm and safe inside its embrace. But now we have finally grown tall enough to peer over the edge of that cradle and to comprehend the outside world, even if its by a small margin. It was then we made our first colony on Mars, where we were able to develop and understand our place in this grand place in galaxy.

We have so much to learn.

To prove to the other races, the United Terran Empire has decided to colonize its first planet outside of its birth system. Luckily for the humans, it's closest star had a Tropical world with the right atmosphere to harbor human life.

We will call this place Melody.

So this will be a colony Simulation RP focused on humanity's first colony out of the Sol System: Melody. It takes place in the Alpha Centarui system on its fourth planet. The player characters are people who are given highly important jobs and form the governing body of the colony called the Council. The Council will be required to form when certain colony wide decision are needed to be made.

I highly suggest making a character specifically for this and choose their occupation carefully. The following is a list of occupations I suggest highly for this:

Spoiler:  Suggested Occupations (hover to show)
When we have a few interested players, I will post a map of the planet and we can then begin.

I'd like to sign on as the expedition's telecommunications expert, with this guy here (http://utterlymad.smfnew2.com/pending-approvals/mike-zankowski-(terran-pc)/), assuming he gets approved.

After spending some time saving up a little money on Terra, Mike recalled fondly his experiences as one of the first "normal" people on Mars back when the colonization started. He's gotten himself a job with the Melody colony that's right up his alley, and might be able to do a little freelance work on the side.

Even if he never hits it rich, a tropical paradise ain't a bad spot to retire.

Sebastian (http://utterlymad.smfnew2.com/pending-approvals/sebastian-drake/msg28424/#new) shall be joining as the Chief Medical Officer, that is, if you'll have him!

It was an exciting prospect that lay before the doctor: The opportunity to finally fly amidst the stars, to journey where men had never journeyed before. He wondered for a moment whether or not he might be made into a novel, whether he might somehow achieve the fame of ancient Odysseus. Surely, there were dangers associated with embarking somewhere new, especially somewhere with the propensity to host life, but Sebastian felt innately confident in his abilities to handle such threats, especially with the mighty fighting forces of humanity at his side.

Worst case scenario: His book of the Odyssey became one like the Illiad, and either way, he fought on the side of Achilles.

Whatever petty Hector any opponents might field would quickly find himself slain!

The couple next to him upon the train gave him a worrying look at he triumphantly raised his fist into the air, and so he quickly stowed his excitement, returning to sipping at a fresh and warm cup of coffee, and gazing eagerly outside of the nearest window, watching as the stars twinkled above with the same majesty that he had always desired.
