"About a thousand years into the future, is where our widely available, rapidly advancing FTL technology is starting to cause issues. Abuse of these technologies is getting out of hand, and the governments holding the galactic arms together (in a figurative sense) are no longer able to prevent mass terrorism without a trace. Bioengineering is also becoming a major problem, even though it is illegal galaxy-wide. It's getting to the point where entire colonies of people are dying from either ecosystem destruction spiraling into chaos and beyond our efforts, or horrible abominations just flat out wiping entire cities clean of intelligent life. The Capital of the galaxy's 'Orion' arm decided to try ending this war and 100 lightyear-wide depression. Their solution? A part machine, part human, part alien lifeform and part miscellaneous Special Weapons And Tactics force. Combat bots, mechanically augmented military personnel and beings from alternate timelines (Somehow, nobody knows how they got here.) are all part of this operation. We can only hope nothing goes wrong..." -A message to the past from theoretical physicist and government official AI, code name 'Eternal Thought' ------------- "E.X.P. Class SWAT drone production code #007-9, you have been given rudimentary self awareness for a major peacekeeping role. You have been tasked with ending a galaxy wide supercorporation corruption. Track their headquarters, destroy them, and eliminate all non-surrendering personnel. Operation begins in one fortnight." -Automated Defense Deployment System LCTN 7 ------------- "Attention civilians! The Capital is in desperate need of all beings of off-dimension origin for a classified task. This is NOT a drill or automated nation defense drill message, made obvious by the law enforcement agents actively patrolling your current city of residence and military hovercraft holding borders. If you are not from another dimension or timeline, but would still like to aid in this task, do not hesitate and report to the nearest warp system. We're going to fix this broken galaxy's problems once and for all." -'Shadow Squadron' Special Forces Commander [CLASSIFIED] ------------- So, a new forum game! I'd first like to state, I'll be running this primarily alone, and that the Insanity Wars series will be terminated for right now. This game will function rather differently from IW3 and its predecessors, and the games we currently have running. The rules are as follows: You may develop personality if you so choose to, freely. Wait until a turn ends before doing something again. Take a minute to listen to the music, I feel as if people don't do that enough in the other forum games. Don't be overpowered, of course. I suggest you try to use other characters than just your original characters, for example Red's, uh.. Red, and Plasma's wacky cast of characters of shadowplasmatic spectres that defy reason 110% of the time. Instead, use robots or some new human characters! I'm not restricting you from your spectres and assassins and derps though. DO NOT try to take over and switch around a major aspect of the game, like making yourself one of the main adversaries. Unless you're given my permission via PM. ------------- Anyways, characters! There's classes of robots, aliens, humans, whatevers, in this game. Certain classes apply to certain races for slightly reasonable logic. The list is as follows: All Rounder - Average health and damage. Standard in every way. Anything except robots. Artillery - Low health, MASSIVE damage. Robots and humans only. Front Liner - High health, low damage. Any race. Reconnaissance - Low health, moderate damage. Anything but alien creatures. Mage - Fairly customizable role. Points system applies (more on that later in gameplay). Off-Dimension characters only; and be reasonable. (Base stats for mage are average HP and low damage) Miscellaneous - Basically anything, as long as it is confirmed by myself to be balanced. When making a join post, list that you'd like to have a misc. role and give at least 3 stat setups to choose from. Can be any race. ------------- Join Format: Name Age Gender isn't important but list it anyway Race Strategic Role Weaponry (Stats will be assigned by myself for balance reasons, but feel free to make weapons however you want.) Personality ------------- welp that concludes this. Joining period, GO!
