Approved by SisenPosted ImageIt is 2013. For years, the Nexus Force has been waging war against the chaotic forces of the Maelstrom for the fate of the entire universe. For the past two years, the Nexus Force has gone through more hardships than ever, but has started to push the Maelstrom back.However, the Darkitect, having recovered from his various losses both in the Nimbus System and abroad, has begun to strike back harder than ever. While the Nexus Force's numbers are large, they need more back-up to hold against the Maelstrom.That's where you come in. Welcome to the LEGO Universe RPG, hosted by Jacks and Brikman McStudz.

RULESThese rules will make your time in the LURPG a whole lot easier.1. All BZP rules are in effect here. This means no spamming, no flaming, etc.2. Use "IC" when In Character (describing what your character is doing in-universe) and "OOC" when Out Of Character (to talk and discuss with other BZP members). This way, it is less confusing for other members to read your posts.3. Keep violent descriptions down to minimal. We are not writing a horror story.4. Do not kill other players' characters without their consent.5. If you are planning to leave this RPG, please let us know in advance so we may take your profile down from the first post. If you're only going on break, tell us so that I do not take down your profile.GUIDELINESGuidelines are like the rules. However, breaking of the guidelines only results in a warning.1. Do not kill official LEGO Characters.2. Please know that at times we can be extremely busy and may not always be able to attend this RPG. 3. If possible, make your posts medium-length. Epics are not required for each post, but posts with one or two in-character sentences don't add much to the RPG. This RPG tries to see how well you and other members can interact and take control of the story; while this can be achieved through short posts, it take far less time with medium-length posts.4. Keep interaction with other LEGO themes that have nothing to do with LEGO Universe down to minimum. Having your character once be apart of the Alpha Team or Space Police before joining the Nexus Force is fun, but bringing in a fleet of Space Police ships and so on is not encouraged.7. No godmodding. If you character takes on an army of a zillion Maelstrom Dragons led by the Darkitect himself while not getting a single scratch, that is godmodding. Don't do that.  

KEY LOCATIONS

Crux Prime - Crux Prime is a jagged, dark world that is the most contested area between the Nexus Force and Maelstrom currently. This world once hosted the Nexus Temple and the Imagination Nexus before being destroyed by the Maelstrom's creation, making it extremely dangerous to travel there. At the edge of the world, a Maelstrom fog constantly spews powerful Stromlings to hinder the Nexus Force. In 2011 and early 2012, Crux Prime was the site of a mining operation by the Skullkin to get Maelstrom Ore to create powerful new weapons for Lord Garmadon. Since then, with Lord Garmadon efforts being solely focused on Ninjago, much of the Skullkin population has been eliminated and the Maelstrom Quarry has turned into a research area for Paradox.On this world is the Nexus Force's headquarters, the massive and grand Nexus Tower. Nexus Tower is the Nexus Force's main base of operations and hosts specialized wings for all four factions. From the Nexus Tower, one can reach Nimbus Station, Club Station Alpha, and Starbase 3001.Nimbus Station - A peaceful world that, after being cleansed of the Maelstrom, became a major foothold for the Nexus Force and hub world for the Nimbus System as a whole. Many Nexus Force members use this area as a place to relax and gather with friends, as it features a race track and concert amphitheater. There once a time machine here to travel back to the famed battle against the Maelstrom on Nimbus Station before it was heavily damaged in a Stromling attack, leaving it in an indefinite state of disrepair. Nimbus Rock and Nimbus Isle properties orbit this world.Avant Gardens - A once beautiful area area of Crux that has been turned into a massive battlefield between the Sentinels and the Maelstrom. Avant Gardens is home to massive monument dedicated to the fight against the Maelstrom and a cave infested with Dark Spiderlings and their Spider Queen. There was Paradox Research Facility here before it was destroyed during the Spider Queen's creation. Avant Gardens is orbited by Block Yard and Avant Grove properties and the Venture Explorer.Venture Explorer - A Venture League cargo ship captained by Sky Lane that was attacked and corrupted by the Maelstrom in 2010. After a brief mission in 2011 to recover important files related to the Nexus Tower, the ship has been left abandoned in the airspace above Avant Gardens.Gnarled Forest - A tropical world with a massive jungle that was heavily populated by pirates before many were corrupted by treasure chests infected with the Maelstrom. The Venture League is allied with the Pirates of the region led by Captain Jack Knife to fight against swarms of Stromling Pirates and brutish Stromling Apes. The Pirates have a camp established on a beach next to the Black Seas Barracuda, which has run aground into a tree. The Maelstrom's energies are focused in a trench filled with its destructive energies. Inbetween the fight against the Maelstrom is a growing conflict between the Pirates and their enemies the Ninja of Forbidden Valley. There is also a racetrack on this world. Gnarled Forest is orbited by Chantey Shanty properties.Forbidden Valley - A rocky, dangerous world controlled by the sacred order of the ninja. The Maelstrom has a powerful presence here, having corrupted the deceased souls of samurai swordsman, old samurai armor, and have taken over the dragon population in the area. The Paradox have a refinery in the area where they conduct research on the Maelstrom, particularly on its leader, Baron Typhonus. Pirate spies are known to be infiltrating Forbidden Valley as the conflict between Pirates and Ninja grow. There is also a racetrack on this world. This world is orbited by Raven Bluff properties.Starbase 3001 - Note: Starbasae 3001 is currently under quarantine. This location is not open for travel. A space station that links off to four small worlds, including:Portabello - A jungle area with an island mountain and a poisonous swamp. This world is inhabited by sentient, pig-like dragons and large snails that are used to pass over the poisonous lake. Portabello is currently infested with small Dark One Stromlings that are more of a minor annoyance at the moment.Moonbase - A Classic Space outpost on a moon near Crux that mines for Imaginatium crystals for Nexus Force use. The Moonbase is one of the only areas in the Nimbus System that has not been attacked by the Maelstrom. Instead, the outpost is being infested by strange, insect-like creatures called Grabbles and antagonized by a mysterious organization called Piratron.DeepFreeze - A frozen world mostly devoid of Minifig life. It is mostly inhabited by small mammals. At the moment, Maelstrom-infected beavers are the primary threat in the world.Robot City - A massive city inhabited by robot citizens. After a robot named Master NXT was infected with the Maelstrom, he spread the corruption throughout the city and infected thousands or possibly millions of citizens into Stromlings and build special robots to destroy those who had escaped Master NXT's corruption. The Nexus Force is currently working on a campaign to defeat Master NXT and his army and retake the city. 

OTHER LOCATIONS

These locations are underneath Nexus Force control and do not branch off to contested worlds, meaning not much happens here. Regardless, they are still available to visit.Pet Cove - Once a horrible Maelstrom wasteland, Pet Cove is a peaceful wildland that acts as a home for cats, dogs, and hares. The area is maintained by Coalessa. It is currently under no threat of the Maelstrom.Club Station Alpha - A starbase in an asteroid belt where citizens of the Nimbus System go to hang out. The station is run by Max. It is currently under no threat of the Maelstrom. 

OFF-LIMIT WORLDS

The world of Ninjago has been forbidden from normal Nexus Force travel following the destruction of the spinjitzu monastery and the increasingly dangerous situation on the planet. Special ops troops are currently looking into the situation for any relation to the Maelstrom. 

CHARACTERS

Your primary character is your main character and can be apart of any of the four factions of the Nexus Force and be one of three Faction specialties or "classes". It is recommended you read up on the classes and factions on the LEGO Universe Wiki if your knowledge is a little rusty.ASSEMBLYThe Assembly are led by Doctor Albert Overbuild and specialize in building, creativity, and the use and study of Imagination. Their main fighting classes are listed below:Engineer: The powerful workforce of Assembly. They specialize in not only repairing fortifications and armor, building turrets to take on wave after wave of Stromlings.Inventor: The heavy hitters of Assembly. They focus heavily on offense with both an Imagination-powered handheld blaster and the power to build a small invention to fire upon Stromlings.Summoner: The wizard-class of Assembly. They use the power of Imagination to summon powerful creatures to aid you in fighting against Stromlings.VENTURE LEAGUEThe Venture League are led by Hael Storm and specialize in exploration, adventure, and puzzle solving. Their three main fighting classes are listed below:Adventurer: Brave explorers who use their speed and exploration skills to discover and fight enemies. Adventurers use a powerful crossbow and whip as weapons.Buccaneer: Treasure hunters; they have similar abilities to Daredevils, but use them for evasive tactics to confuse enemies. Buccaneers wield a pistol and cutlass against their enemies.Daredevil: Powerful warriors of the Venture League faction that, as their name implies, are eager to dive straight into the chaos and use fast speeds, powerful jumps, and dual pistols to flatten Stromling armies.SENTINELSThe Sentinels are led by Duke Exeter and is composed of soldiers and warriors who take the Maelstrom's forces head on. Their three main fighting classes are listed below:Knight: Brave and noble soldiers who are determined to defeat the Maelstrom. Their armor and shield make them difficult to knockdown and a powerful sword make them a dangerous force on the battlefield.Samurai: Powerful and honorable warriors that, when not using their martial art prowess, use a powerful katana and a bow that can shoot fiery arrows to take down their enemies.Space Ranger: Heavily armored soldiers that use their zipgun and blaster to cause massive devastation on the battlefield.PARADOXParadox are led by Vanda Darkflame and specialize in studying and researching the Maelstrom with the intent of using its dark power against itself. Their three fighting classes are listed below:Shinobi: The Shinobi are deadly assassins and the only Paradox faction that uses melee weapons. They use a fast barrage of attacks from their katanas to defeat their foes.Sorcerer: Powerful magicians that use the dark power of the Maelstrom as their source of magic, channeled through their wand and orb.Space Marauder: The hard-hitting soldiers of Paradox. They use their Maelstrom-fueled rocket launcher, blaster, and grenades to repel waves of Stromlings. 

TIERS & VEHICLES

All players begin at Standard tier. After a player has spent a goodly amount of time participating in the RPG, showing dedication, creativity, and/or contributing to the game overall, he/she may be promoted to Veteran tier.As seen in the MMO, Standard-ranking players may use cars or other similarly-sized land vehicles for easy travel within worlds, and rockets for travel between worlds.Players who have been promoted to Veteran may use any sort of vehicle at all: flying saucers, zeppelins, insect-legged submarines...your Imagination is the only significant limit. Please provide a drawing, MOC, or -- at the very least -- a detailed description of your vehicle so that we can imagine it as well. (And keep it reasonable; no invincible motherships or planet-crushing dreadnoughts, please, for that would be god-modding. Of course, if we've seen fit to make you Veteran, you're probably not the type to engage in god-modding anyway, so this may be moot.) 

NPCs

You have one primary character and you can have as many non-primary characters, or NPCs, as you want. These characters are not limited to the main classes of the Nexus Force or even the Nexus Force as a whole. An NPC can be a Nexus scientist or grunt of any faction. They could be a pirate or ninja who inhabits the worlds under the threat of the Maelstrom. Heck, you can even create cunning Stromling NPCs so you wish. They do not require a sign-up sheet.  

SIGN UP

To join the RPG, fill out and post this form for your primary character. Feel free to start posting as soon as you can. 
Name:Faction:Class:Skills:Biography: (age -- we recommend 18 or over -- biographical info, personality, etc.)
 

Get out there and save imagination!

This is the post where I, Brikman McStudz, will update this post with changes if Jacks finds himself unable to do so and vice versa. This post will also lists details concerning the story of the RPG and should be referred as an easy way to know what is currently happening with the plot.

 

SUGGESTED READINGS

The LEGO Universe Wiki is your friend when it comes to anything LEGO Universe-related, particularly if you've never played the game or know little of its mythos. Not that this is a wiki for the MMOG, not the RPG. So do not add pages about your characters.

 

In addition to the location and faction specialties above, I'd recommend reading the "Maelstrom" and "Stromlings" pages. The former page describes the RPG's main enemy in detail and the latter describes the Maelstrom's members, including a list of Stromlings from the MMOG, each with their own links to their own pages. Know that you are not limited to the Stromlings listed here (such as a "Corrupted Sentinel Knight" or something of that regard is okay).

 

NEWS, IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

January 20, 2013: This RPG is now open.

January 28, 2013: The mission to recover the Venture Explorer has been announced.

 

MISSIONSOccasionally we will announce goals for Nexus Force. Elites may then, if they wish, organize operations within the framework of that goal as they see fit. These can be anything from a treasure hunt to a tactical hit-and-run operation to a story arc to develop the overarching plot of the RPG. You're by no means required to participate in any specific mission, or any missions at all, but the story will develop more richly the more players collaborate.The Venture Explorer has been discovered to be almost entirely corrupted by the Maelstrom and the Darkitect intends to turn the ship into a weapon against the Nexus Force! Get in and purify the ship as soon as possible before the Darkitect can act on his plans!

 

PLOT SYNOPSIS

This will host a brief summary of the RPG's plot so you should hopefully be able to jump in to the game without too effort, though we do recommend reading through the full topic. Spoilered for your convenience.

CHARACTER DATABASE

This will be a list of all active players and their primary characters, spoilered for your convenience. I will try to update this regularly.

OOC: And I'll start things off.Name: Ness FarleighFaction: VentureClass: DaredevilSkills: High staminaBiography: Ness was recruited in 2009. She prefers to say very little of her past.IC: Trailing oily purple smoke, the last of the three Stromlings hit the ground hard and did not move again. Ness Farleigh holstered one of her dual flareguns, but kept the other one cocked as she walked cautiously over to where her foe lay, and retrieved her sabre from its neck.It was true, then -- Crux Prime was still no less dangerous, even following the victories of 2012. Ness glanced back one last time at her crashed rocket; the small grey and green craft smoked and sputtered where it had hit the ground, flanked by the bodies of the Stromlings that had brought it down. A chilling wind whipped across the rocky plains and she pulled her old blue greatcoat a bit tighter before turning towards Nexus Tower, looming on the horizon. Sabre in one hand, flaregun in the other, she began her long walk.She'd been away far too long.

[font="georgia, serif;"]Name: sonyaxeFaction: AssemblyClass: Summoner[/font][font="georgia, serif;"]Skills: CQC, stealth, summoning, amazing imaginative powers.[/font][font="georgia, serif;"] Weaknesses (figured I should add these because I have some really good skills, and makes more of a challenge for me): Cant shoot/aim a ranged weapon to save his life, cant double jump :P[/font][font="georgia, serif;"]Background: At the young age of 18, sonyaxe is one of the younger members of the Nexus Force. He was recruited early 2012, and has since proved himself in all regards, much to the disbelief of some. Though at first he was interested in being a Sentenial, he grew an interest in the arcane arts and became a Summoner, with two small differences. Instead of the classic orb and staff of a Summoner, sonyaxe favors a pilum (large spear) and shield. He specializes in stealth, fighting, and summoning combat creatures to aid him in his fight against the Maelstrom. With him is an elite squad of 3 other minifigures; an Adventurer (Tim), a Knight (Sir Aaron), and a Space Marauder (Kowaski) (all three are NPCs, squad name:Nexus Guardians). All are well versed in stealth, combat, and their class specific abilities. All have amazing imaginative powers, and can take down most Maelstrom-infected creatures with little difficulty, especially when working together. Tim is mechanically gifted, Sir Aaron, due to many strange experiments he would rather not talk about, is practically immune to pain. Kowaski well, suffice to say he knows how to make things go BOOM! Sonyaxe is sarcastic and witty, but doesnt crack many jokes and makes no unnecessary comments (except for sarcastic ones). He hates the Maelstrom with all his being for what they did to his universe, and has pledged to destroy it, no matter the cost.[/font] [font="georgia, serif;"]IC: sonyaxe (Crux Prime)[/font] [font="georgia, serif;"]Sonyaxe heard Kowaski grumble angrily from his rock outcropping. "I wanted the stormlings to go BOOM!" He whispered. "Yeah, that other person (OOC: Ness Farleigh) took them all out, and we've been stalking them for ages". Said Sir Aaron, underlining the word "ages" with his finger. "Shut up." sonyaxe whispered. "There may be more. But shouldn't we make ourselves known so that she doesn't shoot our faces off?" I motioned to them, and the Nexus Guardians seemed to melt out of where they had been hiding in the rocks.  " Hello, what brings you here?" Sonyaxe asked the Daredevil.[/font]

OOC: Hmm...fifteen's a bit young. Do you think you would mind changing it to eighteen? I'm not sure whether Nexus Force would recruit teens.Also...wow. Tim and Ness are crazy similar; she's also virtually immune to pain, a fact which I'd meant to show in further IC description. This could get rather awkward. :PIC: "Duty," Ness said flatly. She turned to take stock of the squad coming down from the rocks: a Summoner, an Adventurer, a Space Marauder, and a Knight. She nodded briefly towards the Adventurer, and then turned her attention to the Summoner. He was clearly the leader of the group, though he appeared to be the youngest. She realized that they were still looking expectantly at her, awaiting some further explanation. "I've been away for a while," she said. "Bout time I came back." That was enough for them, apparently."The name's Sonyaxe," the young-looking Summoner said. "They're Tim, Kowaski, and Sir Aaron."The Knight gave a quick bow, and said, "We had tracked that group of Stromlings for near a day now.""Ness Farleigh," she said, in response to the introductions. "And I'm sorry I nicked your kills, but they brought me down." She jerked a thumb back towards her crashed rocket. "I had a good reason."Sonyaxe shrugged. "No worries. Want to accompany us? Safety lies in numbers, after all.""Sounds fine," said Ness. "I'm on my way back to the Tower. If you're headed the same way I'll take you up on that offer."

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]OOC: Took long enough to get it up. :P[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]The NPC Profiles are purely for convenience, both yours and mine.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]PC[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Name: Blake SkyBladeFaction: AssemblyClass: Engineer[/font][font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Skills: He's able to build just about anything reasonable that you could need, given the time and bricks. Can use abilities gained from his armor extremely effectively, simply from being experienced.Biography: Blake is exactly 21 years old, and is outgoing, boisterous, fun-loving and just plain a party-warmer. While it's a bit muted due to events in his past, he's recovered some what due to being on leave for the last year and a half. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]The stories say that he was recruited into the Force at 19, and climbed his way up the ranks until he was a Rank 3, Valiant Weapons and all. Then, during a mission to Crux, events occurred that no-one but the members of his squad know about, and the squad dissolved soon after, with Blake and the Venture, Grace DoveFul, on an extended leave. The duo, now best friends, turned in the Valiant Weapons, (No need to have them if they weren't going to fight) and settled on Blake's Avant Gardens property to make a home. [/font]

 

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]NPCs[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Name: Grace DoveFul [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Faction: Venture[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Class: Buccaneer[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Skills: Grace is very agile, able to leap and dodge like no tomorrow. With her pistol and cutlass, she can out-slice or out shoot most Stromlings. Knowledgeable in basic field first aid.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Bio: She is 20, and is shy and quiet, until she gets to know you. Once that happens, she'll talk, but not as much as Blake would. Underneath her shyness, she's kind and caring, but can get vicious when someone she cares for gets hurt.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Her History is basically the same as Blake's, but she was recruited at 17 and trained for two years before being sent out and rising up the Ranks. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]She also harbors a small crush on Blake, but nobody knows. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"](When she speaks, it will be in green.)[/font]

 

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]First post coming soon, provided there's nothing wrong with the profile.[/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]PC:[/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]Name: Alexander Black[/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]Faction: Paradox[/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]Class: Space Marauder[/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]Skills: Is very skilled at fighting. Can fire blasts of Maelstrom from his Maelstrom infected arm that fused with his gun.[/font]

Bio: Black always wanted to be of the Nexus Force. He joined the Paradox when he was of an appropriate age and quickly became rank two. Then, in an incident he hates to remember, his left arm became  infected with Maelstrom. It fused with his gun, and the only thing keeping it from infecting the rest of him is a strict regiment dictating exactly what eats and how much physical activity he does each day. Before the Maelstrom infected him, he was kind, smart and brave. Now, he occasionally lashes out in anger due to the Maelstrom messing with his mind. He dresses in Rank Three armor during combat, and never dresses in anything else for fighting. His left arm is fused with his gun.

 

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]IC:[/font]

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]Black woke up with a jolt. He looked around his Nexus Tower apartment. Only very special people could live in one of these, and Black's left arm made him so. He had been dreaming about 'The Incident' again. Black opened his weapons locker and pulled out his gear. He walked over to his balcony and got on his Nexus Tower Rocket, which was already on the launch pad. Black was going to the Paradox Refinery in Forbidden Valley.[/font]

 

[font="'trebuchet ms', helvetica, sans-serif;"]OOC:[/font]

Will the unreleased castle world be added here?

 

 

NPC Profiles:

Name: Benjamin Grimpen

Faction: Sentinel

Class: Grunt

Skills: Technology, swordplay

Background: Grimpen joined the Nexus Force through a Grunt program that taught him valuable skills, but lasted a couple months. Despite being a strong, buff, young man, he is normally found in a control room, helping those in battle. (Note: I am using Grimpen as a PC in my Ninjago RPG.)

 

Name: Meredith Black

Faction: Paradox

Class: Shinobi

Skills: Stealth, swordplay, basic knowledge of spells

Background: Meredith is the younger sister of Alexander Black. She joined the Nexus Force shortly after he did, and looks up to him. Meredith is only Rank Two.  She is currently dating Jack Storm. (See below)

 

Name: Jack Storm

Faction: Venture League

Class: Daredevil

Skills: Driving, fixing things, great accuracy with his flareguns

Background: After joining the Nexus Force, Jack worked hard to become a Rank Three daredevil. He met Matt Formigan, Benjamin Grimpen and Alexander Black in Survival, and the four men bonded. (Note: I am using Storm as a PC in my Ninjago RPG)

OOC: I changed his age to 18, and it is Sir Aaron that is immune to pain. Also, Now that I'm thinking about It, it would add a bit more variety if i changed Tim to a buccaneer.IC: Sonyaxe"Sounds great." Sonyaxe said. "The main reason we are here is because a Mealstorm dragon blasted our spaceships out of the sky. Still, it would be great to go back to the Tower for a bit." "I still want to blow stuff up" complained Kowaski. Sonyaxe, annoyed, turned to him and said "Fine! If we meet anything bigger than a Mealstorm Pirate, you can blow it up. Sheesh."OOC: I almost said Rico instead of Kowaski, like from the Madagascar movie penguins. : )

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Blake SkyBlade, Assembly Engineer Rank 3, builder, racer, and rocket flyer extraordinaire was relaxed, with a pina colada in his hand, and his face turned up to the sun. He was laying on a sun-chair, on top of the roof of a small house, situated atop a mountain. Seated on the highest point of the property, he was free to relax. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]For the next five minutes, at least. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]He was being called back to battle, along with Grace, mainly because they had taken a long enough leave as it was. 1 and a half years was supple time to get over... [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]'No. I'm not going to think of him.'[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]And the alarm went off, right next to his head. Blake groaned, rolled over and hit it. It happily smashed to pieces, and then reformed itself as he left the roof. Going into the cottage, he took some stairs which continued deep into the mountain. Blake passed many doors, each with a different name on it. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Storage...[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Pets...[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Workroom...[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]He finally stopped at the last door, marked 'Launch Pad.' He entered.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]"Ready to go, Blake?"[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]He smiled. There she was, his best friend and squadmate, who he had shared countless memories with. Grace DoveFul, Buccaneer Rank 3, waited beside the rocket. Around her feet jumped a sabertooth tiger, which perked up and then ran to him.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]"Yep. He-hey, down Excaliber!"[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]He patted the tiger, before putting him into his pack. Next the Engineer regarded the rocket. Christened the 'Basic Rock-Et Mk56, Double Seater,' it was an entirely custom-built rocket, with a blue-green-yellow color scheme (Actually not eye-searing) and two seats, one behind the other. It was also equipped with an Imagination Blaster, used from the 2nd seat. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]"Come on, Dove. It's time to kick some Maelstrom bones!"[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]"Eye eye, captain." [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]The reply was slightly sarcastic, but he knew that she wouldn't fail him. Not noticing the slight blush that crept across her cheeks, Blake jumped into the pilot's seat. Grace followed, getting into the gunner's seat.[/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]The side of the mountain opened up, and the 'Basic Rock-Et Mk56, Double Seater' (BREM56,DS) shot out, heading for the stronghold of Imagination. [/font]

[font="'comic sans ms', cursive;"]Nexus Tower.[/font]

OOC:Woo-hoo! Finally!

 

Name: Matthew CyristaFaction: Is not an actual part of Nexus Force, is an outside contractor, but currently works closely with AssemblyClass: InventorSkills: Tech, some minor linguistics, excellent at melee and ranged combatBiography: He grew up in an asteroid colony hearing of the terrors of the Maelstrom. When he was fifteen, he decided to create weapons and other technology to assist Nexus Force. His home came under attack by a force of Stromlings two years later, and his weapons and drones allowed the citizens to repel the invasion. He then decided his inventions were strong enough to assist Nexus Force. Since then, he has been a great help, and has paved the way for other contractors and unofficial Nexus Forcers.

 

age:25

 

personality: Determined to push back and destroy the Maelstrom. Can seem cold and calculating at times, but most of his friends believe he is planning ahead.

 

 

IC:Cyrista was flying his fighter ship back to Nexus Tower from a successful mission when it happened. He blacked out, seeing hints of purple as his eyes closed.

 

His ship flew out of control, hitting an asteroid in orbit around Crux Prime. Just before impact, his pilot's pod was ejected out and was captured by the gravitational forces of Crux Prime. It went into a crash-course with the planet.

 

As the group composed of Ness, sonyaxe, Sir Aaron, Tim, and Kowaski were in their discussion, they noticed a streak of fire coming down, hitting the surface not far from where they were. They decided to go investigate it.

 

OOC:I do hope neither of you mind this, but I need to use them to find Cyrista and bring him back to Nexus Tower. Part of my newest origin story. This won't work any other way.

 

When they reach the pod, they will identify Cyrista by his armor: It's like the Space Marine's from Minifigure Series 7, except it has a Paradox logo on the right shoulder pad, Sentinels on the left, and Assembly on his chest.

 

Thanks in advance!

Zakaro, it's aye, not eye. An eye is an organ of the body.

 

IC:

Black landed his craft at the Paradox Refinery and entered. The receptionist said, "The scientists are upstairs, as always, Mr. Black."  Black ran upstair to find the laboratory.  A Assembly Summoner walked over, and said, "Your arm looks normal." "For being infected with the Maelstrom, yes." said Black. The summoner was a good friend of his named Matt Formigan. After the regular examination, Black walked out. One of the scientists walked over and said, "Black, we know you want to be cured. We are working on a cure. The best we can do is hold back the spreading of the infection. You also might want to know this: Your gun can fire many different kinds of Maelstrom bolts. If you can think of it, you can fire it." Black got on his rocket again and took off, to Nimbus Plaza.

Black stood at the remains of the time machine. He asked Wenn Wuzzit if it could be fixed. Wenn said, "No, sorry. Stromlings took an important part of the machine." Black sighed and went over to the launch pad to Avant Gardens. Once there, he called  Nexus Tower, asking for permission to battle on the Venture Explorer. He then sent out a call saying, "I am waiting for permission to board the Venture Explorer. If permission is refused, I will go to the Avant Gardens Survival. Please meet at one of the picnic areas in the Launch Area."

OOC: Alrighty, so I updated with the character list. Hopefully I'll keep that a regular occurrence .Probably won't, but worth a shot. Also, I assumed Ness is a Veteran, Jacks.

 

Will the unreleased castle world be added here?

 

Possibly one day, but not today.

 

If I can go back in the past for the Battle of Nimbus Plaza, I will. Anyone want to join me?

 

I'll answer with this:

 

Nimbus Station - A peaceful world that, after being cleansed of the Maelstrom, became a major foothold for the Nexus Force and hub world for the Nimbus System as a whole. Many Nexus Force members use this area as a place to relax and gather with friends, as it features a race track and concert amphitheater. There once a time machine here to travel back to the famed battle against the Maelstrom on Nimbus Station before it was heavily damaged in a Stromling attack, leaving it in an indefinite state of disrepair. Nimbus Rock and Nimbus Isle properties orbit this world.

 

We decided against time travel for casual use. There is always the possibility for a mission involving time travel, but at this time, it has been disabled.

 

Now, I guess I'll post my character and get started

 

Name: Alissa Kahn

Faction: Assembly

Class: Engineer

Skills: Construction/Engineering, Technology

Background: Alissa is 29 years old. She formerly served as an Alpha Team agent on Earth before being recruited by the Nexus Force in 2007. She is a quiet, bitter individual who prefers to work with her creations opposed to people. When she does work with others, she is often unfriendly and snarky.

 

IC:

 

Alissa Kahn charged her wrench and quickly repaired her damaged turret guarding the perimeter of Nexus Tower. Once again, a group of nearly twenty Stromlings were charging toward the building in a futile attempt to break through. Basic Stromling Invaders with two Stromling Admirals leading them. Nothing she couldn't take care of.

 

The turret sparked to life and fire rapidly upon the Stromling horde. A piece of cake. The Maelstrom's foot soldiers dropped one by one. Alissa rolled her eyes. Pathetic, really. They were perfectly okay with charging blindly toward a heavily fortified tower without any sort of strategy. She shrugged as she began to construct another turret to guard the tower from a box of pieces nearby.

 

Guarding the tower was a relatively easy duty, but a boring one. Only the most brain-dead and weakest Stromlings made an attempt at the tower. They managed enough brain capacity to get together and attack in numbers, but that was about it.

 

As she finished the turret, Alissa's radio in her helmet crackled to life. "Kahn? Are you there?"

 

"What?" Alissa snapped. There was an irritated sigh from whoever was on the other end.

 

"I don't need the lip, Kahn," the man replied. "Anyway, I was scanning the surrounding area and noticed a couple Maelstrom anomalies approaching the building from your side."

 

Alissa purposefully paused, before continuing dryly: "And?"

 

There was groan. "Look for yourself." Alissa shrugged and lifted a pair of binoculars to her helmet visor. She scanned the area and quickly saw the "anomalies": Two hulking Stromling Apes with three minifig Stromlings around them. Alissa gritted her teeth together and charged her wrench.

 

She was going to need a little more firepower.

IC:

Jacob was near the Nexus tower, he was investigating the surrounding area, when he noticed a group of Malestrom forces approaching the tower, he also saw a Assembly engineer, and thought, "Probably should head over to help, its not like a turret or so will be able to hold for too long." Jacob then started to move toward the tower and radioed the Assembly engineer and said "Space Ranger Jacob Liang here, looks like you might need a bit of help, just be careful not to shoot me while I come, I am little bit behind the Malestrom forces."

 

OOC:

Hope you have no problem with me joining in on the fight.

OOC: Wow, this really blew up!I'm thinking, also, that since we're using "rank" colloquially to refer to the 1-3 thing from the MMO, perhaps we should refer to Standard and Veteran as tiers instead? Any objections? (I probably should've thought of that while we were in Development Heck :P)  
Now that I'm thinking about It, it would add a bit more variety if i changed Tim to a buccaneer.
I might suggest Adventurer, since we don't have any of those yet.avmatoran, are you planning for Cyrista to join Nexus Force over the course of the game, or is he to remain a freelancer indefinitely?IC: Ness had only been walking with the self-proclaimed "Nexus Guardians" for a few minutes when Kowaski exclaimed and pointed towards the sky. The five of them turned to look, and as they watched, an escape pod plunged through the clouds and plowed into the ground not far away."Shall we go and check that out?" Sonyaxe suggested."Couldn't hurt," said Ness with a nod. "I don't recognize any of the markings, but the pilot could be hurt. And like you said, there's safety in numbers."They soon reached the smouldering pod, and Sir Aaron and Kowaski pried the cockpit open. An unconscious figure tumbled out. He was clad in armour of a similar style to that of the Space Rangers, but with the insignias of Sentinel, Paradox, and Assembly on the pauldrons and chest, respectively."No love for Venture, I see," Tim muttered. "Any of you know who this guy is?""if I'm not mistaken," Ness said, "this is one Matthew Cyrista, weaponsmith. Specializes in arms for Rangers and Marauders, and given his profession, works closely with Assembly.""Then how do you know all about him?" Tim inquired."I've got a Space Marauder friend."--------------------Their progress was slowed somewhat by Cyrista, who remained unconscious. The armour in particular made him a bit hard for them to carry; Sir Aaron suggested removing some of it, but Kowaski disagreed. "If he's injured under there," the Space Marauder said, "unsealing that suit before he can get any proper medical assistance is about the worst we could do for him." So they simply carried the inventor two at a time.They were about half a mile away from Nexus Tower, and Ness and Sonyaxe were carrying Cyrista, when they suddenly saw flashes up ahead."Figures we'd have to fight our way back into our own base," Ness muttered. They crept up the last stony ridge, gently setting Cyrista's unconscious form down out of sight, and sureyed the narrow plain surrounding the Tower, where a battle was indeed raging. A veritable battalion of Stromlings was engaging Samurai, Buccaneers, Shinobi, and others, who all responded fiercely. As Ness and the Nexus Guardians watched, a wave of Stromling footsoldiers charged an Engineer's turret. The Engineer dispatched them with ease, but then a pair of massive Stromling apes took notice and began lumbering towards the turret.Ness slipped off her greatcoat, ignoring the sensation of the cold air on her bare arms, and drew her flareguns. She turned to Kowaski and Sir Aaron. "I think we could take those apes down," she said. "Sonyaxe, Tim, you two keep an eye on Cyrista. And Sonyaxe, we could probably use some help by way of your Summoning." She then turned back towards the battle. "Let's get this over with." And with that they charged down the hill.

OOC: I might recommend the former option; it would make things a bit simpler all around. And if you're going in the direction I think you are with this introduction, it might also be fitting.

Okay, my first RPG--hopefully I won't crash and burn.Let's see now... Name: Jedediah Smith, aka ReaperFaction: Venture LeagueClass: DaredevilSkills: Extremely proficient marksman, and well-versed in boxing/streetfighting. Also, he's got a magic gun. (Where'd he purchase that? Linkara!)Bio: When Jedediah was first recruited to the Nexus Force, he was nothing much more extraordinary than a promising young Daredevil with an optimistic outlook, an outgoing attitude, and a supercharged sense of humor. That all changed the day he found himself going up against a Sorcerer who had gone rogue and defected to the Maelstrom. Jed wound up dispatching the turncoat just as he was casting a powerful spell. Without the sorcerer's guidance, the unleashed energy went out of control, with Jedediah at ground zero. The exposure turned his skin and muscles a translucent grey, leaving him with a skeletal appearance. He also discovered that his pistols now fired highly destructive bullets of pure energy, and never needed reloading. Whether this power is really in the guns, in him, or some combination of the two, is still unknown. What is known is that, since the incident, he has become far more introspective, largely keeping to himself and developing a shell of cynicism. He spends most of his time on solo missions, slaughtering Stromlings. Oh, and that badly edited-in black thing in the picture is a duster. Just in case you can't tell. 

{EDIT: As of January 23, NPCs! Three for now, might be more later.

NAME: Aaron Richards

FACTION: Sentinel

CLASS: Samurai

SKILLS: Extensive Spinjitzu training. He's especially good with Earth and Fire, not so much with the others.

BIO: There's no denying Aaron likes the finer things in life. He can often be found buffing scratches out of his armor, and takes great pride in his ordinate helmet and swords. Yet, for all his foppishness and seemingly shallow attitude, Aaron is a loyal companion and is always willing to go the extra mile to help out a friend in need.   

 

NAME: Elaine Blackstone

FACTION: Paradox

CLASS: Sorcerer

SKILLS: Lots of imagination, and very good at using it efficiently.

BIO: Elaine has known Jedediah for most of her life; the two enlisted in Nexus Force together. She's generally very calm, level headed, and friendly, and tries her best to keep it like that, because when she gets angry, she doesn't go halfway! She's particularly troubled by Jed's change of attitude, since the two of them had something of a romance for several years. It was really more of a flirtation than anything concrete, though, and ever since the incident with that other Sorcerer, things between them are less certain than ever...

 

NAME: Percival Woolfe

FACTION: Assembly

CLASS: Engineer

SKILLS: Well versed in several forms of hand-to-hand combat.

BIO: Not much to say here. Percival is just a very proper British gentleman, if your definition of "proper British gentleman" includes "enjoys dismembering Stromlings with a super-powered chainsaw". If it doesn't, he'll probably just call you a narrow-minded twat...which really isn't all that proper of him, but then we all lose our tempers once in a while, eh, old chap?}

 

*Joker voice* And here we go... IC: Reaper swore under his breath as he glared at the thick, sticky sheet of Maelstrom Spider webbing that blocked the only path. He glanced behind him, at the path that wound away between two vast, jagged slabs of rock. There was no point backtracking, he decided. He'd had a funny feeling, like he was being watched, for much of his trip, and didn't particularly feel like strolling into an ambush. Then he gazed up, examining the cliffs themselves, which seemed to rise up forever on either side. "Another one of those days," he muttered, then holstered his pistols and started climbing. After about forty feet up he stopped to rest--he didn't want to exhaust himself when he still had at least a hundred more feet to scale. That was when he heard it--a nasty, chitinous-sounding clicking. Peering down over his shoulder, Reaper saw what was unmistakably an Elite Dark Spiderling standing at the base of the cliff, looking curiously up at him. Realizing it had been spotted, the monster began to skitter up the wall toward him with alarming speed. "So it's a race, is it?" Reaper growled as he began hauling himself up the cliff face with renewed vigor. "You're on, ugly."

OOC: I switched Tim to Adventurer.IC: Sonyaxe grinned wolfishly. "With pleasure." He said. Inwardly, though, he sighed. People always figured that summoners stayed away from the middle of a fight, but it was practical, although he didnt like it. But summoning was still fun. He quickly summoned a quartet of living turrets and two practically indestructible imagination ogres, watching contededly as they started blowing holes in the Mealstorm lines.

He soared through the air to the Venture Explorer and came through one of  the port holes. Black got out of his rocket and said hello to Epsilon Starcracker. Black looked around to monitor the situation. There were Hammerlings, Elite Dark Spiderlings and Corrupted Sentries. "This is going to be tough." Black said.[/font]

OOC: An NPC, i might call one as backup trooper, Ok?

 

IC Damon Vankorov

 

"This, my friend, is nothing compared compared to my might!" He said, as he jumped down the platford killing a few stormling troopers in some heroic moves. But after some time he became surrounded by three Evil Mealstorm spiders. "Oh spiders I HATE spiders, Can I get some help here?" He shouted to his ally above.

Matt, despite owning a full set of Rank Two gear, still used a Rank One staff because he like the design better. The Thwok did it's work and drew the Elite Dark Spiders over to it. Black said, "Time to test out my arm." He imagined flames coming out of it, pointed his arm and large, dark purple fireballs engulfed the Spiders. Black and Matt jumped down to Damon. Matt said, "It's dangerous here. We should work on clearing one are first. Perhaps the entry ports?"[/font][/font]

IC: Reaper had a sinking feeling that the race was almost over. 

He was climbing as fast as he could, but the Spiderling was made for just this sort of pursuit, and his lead was diminishing by the second. Hasn't even bothered to use its guns on me, he thought. Guess it thinks I'm easy prey. I'll just have to make it rethink its assessment.

That, though, would be easier said than done. Reaper knew that if he stopped to draw a pistol, his pursuer would close the gap in a heartbeat. He was out of options.

Just then, something dropped from the head of the cliff. Not something--someone, he realized, as the figure jerked to a halt several yards away on the cliff face. She looks familiar, he thought absently. Grace something-or-other. I think. More importantly, her sudden appearance had provided just what he needed--a distraction. As the Spiderling paused to examine the new arrival, Reaper whipped out a pistol and sent a barrage of five energy slugs down at his adversary. Four found their target, and the erstwhile Spiderling tumbled down the cliffside, landing at the bottom with a nasty crunch. "So," he said, glancing nonchalantly at his savior, "what's a girl like you doing in a place like this?"
