I think I might join. I have an idea for my character already, but I think describing him is going to be pretty challenging.

Adding you to the OP Kitty, and editing yours Potato.
And some information too.
The mercenaries will be together from the beginning, as a corporation have hired them separately to do a "joint" operation. It will take place on Bahkarr.
Everyone can also have a second character, a la Nerrone's Rangers, but I advise not to do so.
I myself will have a second character the "-Unknown Dossier-", that will be introduced later in the RP.
Finally.

User: Pukinglilcuttlefish

Name: Arthur Johnson

Gender: Male

Age: unknown

Biography: Arthur belongs to a space faring race of sentient, bipedal aliens called Orthopterians, that closely resemble arthropods. Orthopterians utilize biotechnology, and only organisms that share their DNA are capable of using their technology. Conceived as slaves, they were bound to serve another, dominant species. Due to artificial modification by a master race through genetic tinkering, the Orthopterians became nothing more than worker-class drones and engineers. They lost all initiative, and became solely dependent on the commands of their masters. Arthur was an engineer that was one of the more resilient members of his race, and managed to bypass the genetic modification that was bestowed upon his people. The Slavers soon became aware of this, and planned on executing Arthur before he would be able to create an opposition. Arthur Fled his home world in hopes of finding a way to save his people.

Equipment: Arthur wears a platted, orange and black exosuit that is worn by the engineers of his race. The exosuit is flame-resistant and adds moderate protection from gunfire. It posses small shoulder thrusters that allow for quick travel in zero gravity, as well as magnetic boots that enable him to attach himself to the hull of a ship. The exosuit is equipped with various sensory modules that allow for him to pick up a variety of radio frequencies. He wields an advanced, modded welding gun that can launch a lethal spray of biodegrading chemicals at close range, as well as an Orthopterian assault rifle that can only be used by his race.

Strengths: Arthur is incredibly strong and resourceful. Arthur is also exceptionally tough and has a very high pain tolerance. He is steadfast, and will risk his life to save his people. He's a skilled engineer, and can construct useful items out of scraps, just as long as he has the right components.

Weaknesses: Arthur has a rather linear mindset, and he's not very optimistic. He's susceptible to armor piecing bullets, which can crack both his engineering suit and his exoskeleton. He also isn't much of a fighter, and doesn't like harming others unless it is completely necessary.

Adding you to the OP. I think we'll soon have enough people to get it ready. Just two or so more.

My second character, a skin from Ratchet: Gladiator.


User: Dark_potato57
Name: W3RM (just pronounced worm. took me ages to figure that out)
Gender: Male
Age: Unknown
Biography: He could supposedly be the descendent of a dragon or a slug, and it is really hard to distinguish, given his general appearance. He was involved in an illegal combat sport known as Dreadzone, but the space station was destroyed, and he made it out alive. Having not much else to fall back on, he became a mercenary.
Equipment: Two machine guns called Dual Raptors, and a mace called the Leviathan Flail, both purchased from Pox industries. The mace has a devastating, almost explosive strike. Both weapons are collapsible. He also wears a suit of armour standard to his race.
Pictures:
 
Strengths: He is quick, lithe, agile, aggressive, and very handy with his weapons. He is also good at swimming.
Weaknesses: He isn't one for taking hits. While his armour will probably keep him alive through most ordeals, it won't completely protect him. He is light, so if push comes to shove, he will be the first to fall over. Since he lacks any proper mission equipment other than his weapons, he's only useful as a hitman or guard.

BTW, Delta, will you join this?

@Potato: I might do so just for the perspective it would give me, if I can think of a decent character. If I'm brutally honest, though, the RP itself hasn't really grabbed me. I have, after all, spent the last ten months or so running my own RP about mercenaries in a sci-fi setting. razz

Ten months already? I don't think anyone would call it short-lived if you put it to bed now.

Now I'm going to the defend my work like the amature I am. razz
While Nerrone's Rangers focus on mercenary life, you know, like taking on missions, roaming the sector. And that kind of stuff, Behind the Shadows takes place in a more wild westernish setting. First, there is no band. Second, no ship. Third... Ahem... I won't force the story through. humph If you can find a way to beat it. Then beat it. If it's dead, its dead.

@Potato: Careful how you phrase that; anyone could think you were angling for me to shut down NR. >:U

@Isak: The problem is there's nothing on your OP that explains any of that, and the one post you made on NR's OOC was only an inkling — we don't exactly have much to go on, so it's a little more difficult to be enthused by it. razz


Incidentally, if you think I railroad things too hard in NR then that is something I would be very interested to know. Happy. Using the OOC I was gearing up to ask for some feedback on the RP so far, now that we've passed a more intense part — it's my first RP too.

Hold whatever horses you have, I'm just saying that nobody will be all like "BUT IT JUST STARTED!" if it went peacefully in its sleep this very night.

You do know that you can change your GMing style at whatever point you like, right? razz If you're not getting a pleasant reaction, you don't have to start another RP just to change, silly.

Of course I can alter how I do things; the problem is obviously that I need to know what to change (and, equally, what I'm doing right). XD For instance, this is the first time I've heard a real complaint about me pushing the story through — though I am already pursuing an angle designed to lead to things becoming less linear in the near future. Joyful

@Delta: Well okay. I'll update the OOC then wink . And yes, it sometimes feels like you're streamlining, NOT railroading, NR. There's a huge difference.

@Delta: Well that's a misunderstanding if I ever saw one; I thought you knew the whole time, but just didn't care about how people thought about your RP so long as they played it. It worked on me, that's for sure.

Well this is interesting, Happy. I think it would be helpful to hear of some specific examples — but perhaps you could post them on NR's OOC so that we can leave this thread to discussion of Isak's RP.

I've determined that my schedule in the coming month or so won't give me time to participate fully in another RP, so please don't wait up for me. I might join later, if all goes swimmingly. Happy.

I would like to join this, but I'm stuck for character ideas. Uncertain

This is set in a world with Spore-level technology, right?

50/50 actually, Epsilon. It is a bit of wild-west. Some have advanced technology others don't.
But, yeah... It is a mixture, there is hovercars but only for the ones that can afford it. Mostly trains, and zeppelins/airships are used, for example.
But it is a sci-fi, so future/Spore technology is used.

Basicly. I'm working hard to make contrasts, between rich and poor, advanced and primitive.
Why use expensive hovercars, when airships and trains work as well with lower cost?
You'll see now when I'm doing the IC.
