I guess. And I'm not thinking of anything else awesome to go with the name.  ;D  So when do we start? We should set a specific date.

I think first we should advertise this a little bit. Right now it's only us 3, perhaps we could advertise on TeenInk(our original starting place) or update the news of the site. Perhaps you could get an email list or something to notify other RolePlayers when an admin-crafted or regular RP is about to begin?

I've been advertising some on TI. I think BlackBadge is coming, and Zech seemed interested.


Who are you on TI? I didn't know you were from there.

My RP friends are from Moddb(Tyler294 being one of them), and they aren't interested. Anyway, we don't need a huge amount of people, 3-5 would be ideal to start with, in my opinion.

Aeliss, I'm SomethingCalledTerra.


Garyn, you're probably right. Have any of you seen After Earth?

Nope. But BlackBadge was telling me a little about it, and how this RP sounded similar.

There were three ships, but only one got hit. The others continued on. The names are Inception, Endeavor, and Hyperion. Our characters are on The Inception. The ship model is Ark. Is this all okay?

Perhaps we find out later they were attacked by aliens? And once we get the RP started I seriously encourage using off-site links for picture reference n st00f

Maybe. Or maybe when we find the aliens, if we do, we think they attacked us, when they actually didn't...Or if they did for what they thought was self-defense. That would cause problems. >8D


I second that. Though, for character skeletons, I think there should also be some written details that you can't see from photos. Like, height, if they've got any tattoos or scars that are hidden, etc.

Deviantart is a wonderful sight for many reasons. You must trek there.

I already have. I've got an account. :)   Garyn's got one, too. I'm already planning a drawing of a character for this, actually.

Lol, kay. :p

Rules
1. Dedicated. Do not join if you can’t stay. If you want to leave for any reason, you have to kill your character off in a way that makes sense. You can’t just leave and say “Kill my character if you want.” You have to do it.
2. Literate. An occasional mistake is okay, but please try to be as literate as you can.
3. Keep it PG-13. No excessive profanity, sexual content, etc. We want this RP to be open to anyone.
4. No Powerplaying, unless the creator of the character specifically asked you to (though, try to avoid asking unless absolutely necessary).
5. No Godmodding. Keep in mind that not all of these people are strong, good fighters, geniuses, etc. Some might be, but a majority of the colonists would be regular citizens. Stick with the supplies they would have on hand, and don't go inventing random things out of convenience. People can't just go around pulling Neutron Death Rays out of their butts.
6. No Sympathy Sams or Mary Sues.
7. Keep it realistic. Tech isn't drastically different from what it is now. Guns still have bullets, not lasers; ships don't travel at the speed of light (hence the cryo-freezing); and there is no insta-heal goop, though maybe we can have something that speeds it along. 
7. Follow the rules posted here at all times.

Do these look good? Any suggestions?

Looks good to me! I would add some genre specific rules(ex. set a tech standard so that people aren't pulling Neutron Death Rays out of their butts.)

I just changed the name of this thread, and created a wikia page for the RP: http://forgerp.wikia.com/wiki/Cold_Secrets

Awesome! I'm psyched! Is it alright if I play an important figure(but not the captain and/or general)?

I was thinking it'd be more interesting if the captains and leaders had died in the crash, thus forcing one or more of the colonists to take charge.

I would be fine if you controlled the guy/gal that got picked/volunteered to be the colonist leader though.

I was thinking more along the lines of a surviving soldier or something. Someone with a smidge of survival knowledge.

Yeah, that's fine. The colonists can come from almost any background.

EDIT: I just put a logo together in photoshop and added it to the first RP post, and a variation of it to the wikia page: http://forgerp.wikia.com/wiki/Cold_Secrets
