Operation Icebreaker - Sign up & OOC Discussion
« on: December 08, 2015, 08:32:07 pm »
4:30 AM - Somewhere by the Maryland coast...

The liberally painted, khaki green bricks of the far wall glare out at you, under the yellow light of harsh incandescent bulbs hanging in their tin frames from the ceiling. You squint to see one brick in particular. You love the brick, you have learned to love the brick, it is your brick. You keep your eyes trained on the brick as though your life depended on it, your comrade opposite you maintaining an identical pose, attention fixed on his own brick, somewhere above and behind your head.

"ATTENTION!", a drawn out cry reverberating around the near bare barracks, the clump of boots on polished floor impressively uniform. Your gaze does not move from your brick however.

You have all proved your worth to the services so far, mostly fresh faced and eager. A finally trained crew set to tame a new breed of cold alloy beast. You have been assigned to a new generation of nuclear submarine to be a functioning part of her maiden voyage. She is 560 feet long, Ohio class, and is rumoured to have a peculiar coating similar in resemblance to that of a cream pearl, but that one is just hearsay. This is all you know, most of the information you desire has been classified to you this far, and you are excited to nearly have your answers, but for now you must stay focused.

You resist the urge to peek curiously at the movement and quiet utterances in your peripheral vision, and before you know it the brick is gone, replaced with the kind eyes and serious face of a lean, black and white Laika dressed in the all too familiar khaki brown.

He extends a paw with what could be called a smile to accompany it, "My name Is Anton Kursk, I will be your Captain from this point" he states in a surprisingly calming voice, "Now, who are you?".

Character sheet:

Name - Self explanatory
Age - Ditto
Species & Physical appearance - A basic overview of height, build, etc. Describe any unique features you like. As long as they don't have two heads, I won't mind!
Personality type - Some short statements on the characters general demeanour, I want to keep personalities and backgrounds out of character sheets aside from basic information, as It should hopefully allow people to figure each other out as though they had only recently met.
Position - From Naval Nuclear Reactor Technician, to galley chef, you can choose a position within reason as you like, as long as you are not all a 2nd IC, and not the captain... >_>

...go! ^-^

Ooh... Making a comeback in the RP board are we? I'm interested... I'll get a card up when I figure out which character to use. Quick question: are hybrids allowed, or is that kinda like the two head thing?

So... I'll just throw up a card and see what you think of this particular hybrid...

Name: Myre Callista
Age: 21
Species and physical appearance: pit martin (diamondback rattlesnake and Martin hybrid.) small and harmless looking. Dark brown fur with lighter brown diamonds on her back and a light tan rattle. Has retractable fangs and golden snake eyes, as well as the heat sensing pits of a pit viper.
Personality type: almost cute looking and plays to it, though has wicked core motives. Joined the military as an excuse to kill legally.
Position: weapons officer

If my hybrid's still cool, I'll add more detail in.

I was just a little conscientious of some people who might like to play as an ant or something, but then again who am i to dictate someone's imagination? ^^

Raptors are fine, dragons too, I was thinking more about really peculiar things like anthro spiders and such ^_^

Species & Physical appearance - A 5 and a half foot anthro Laika dog, with black and white fur in large blotches, and dark brown eyes.

Awww no  spiders? Eh this seems cool. What exactly do we do?

You role play as a character through the game as the story unfolds, and after a while your characters find a personality naturally, it's like a game but using your imagination. A cross between book and game.

Don't forget, how many times did you "Pretend" as a kid? It was and still is fun! ^_^

Have a go ;)

^yes they do I believe they're called independent duty corpsman (IDC or HM/Hospital Corpsman). They also keep track and record of radiation dosage of each member of the crew.

Also I may put my card up soon would a Navy Missile Technician be a playable role?
