    Circa year 2020: Mankind accidentally make first contact with seemingly friendly paranormal entities, who then sneakily take over from right under humanity's noses. The otherworldly entities used a wide range of tactics to take over without the use of invasion or brute force. Assassinations, bribery, blackmail, corrupting officials, and so on and so forth were used. Humanity wasn't punched in the face. It was punched in the back of the head. A one-world government called the Emergence Entity was formed. While many questioned how the governments of the world suddenly fused together, it was "explained" away by international unity and globalism.
    During the time of their arrival, nobody on Earth had a concrete reason why the otherworldly beings appeared and did what they did. Some believed they're here to harvest Earth and the resources while playing humanity like a puppet. Others did believe they have compassion for humanity. While actions speak louder than words, propaganda has muddled the lines between fact and fiction. However, it can be inferred that dissidence has diminished over the 2020s save for pockets of misfits that live in the countryside rather than the cities.

    2035: To take back Earth, guerrilla warfare has been deemed a must. The Griffin organization was founded from the remnants of the old world. The founding members were ex-military, yet the membership became much more diverse, expanding it from a mere nuisance to a threat to the Emergence Entity. It is up to a ragtag bunch of misfits to save planet Earth from the paranormal beings' nefarious plans. To Griffin, it wasn't military might that made the paranormals dangerous. It was how manipulative they were. Griffin wasn't just a global organization. It was a mobile one, using the Nemesis; a converted supply craft stolen from the paranormal beings. Griffin took to calling them Xenos to highlight their strange and otherworldly nature.

    If you're heroic or insane enough to join the resistance, do it or become them! Long live the resistance!

    TLDR: Otherworldly beings took over the planet! Fight back and save our freedom! (Think like XCOM 2 and Warhammer 40000 combined.)

    I also forgot to mention that I'll be happy to answer questions. If anyone wants, I can also provide a quick template and examples if you all so need.

    Nice, first question how old and how young can my characters be?

    At least 18 years or adulthood. We aren’t putting the infant in infantry. And at most 40 years, especially for leaders and veterans.

    Also, once I get more interested folks, I will prop up a template and make this an OOC and discussion thread if needed.

    Hello! Would you like me to provide you a template for character creation? I can provide examples too.

    Here is the template:

    Name:
    Country of origin:
    Class (AKA Specialty):
    Appearance: (Description or picture, though a picture says a thousand words).
    Bio: (At least a paragraph's worth.)
    Personality: (Like bio, at least a paragraph's worth. Optional, but recommended.)

    List of starting primary classes:
    • Apothecary: Mending with medicine or murder with toxins

    • Bombardier: Explosive or machineguns

    • Commando: Close quarters battle or reconnaissance

    • Deadeye: Sniper or gunslinger
    By the way, because of permadeath and the fact that I feel merciful, I allow up to three character sheets.

    Characters I’ll use as examples. They should help.


    Name: Ronan Stark
    Country of origin: United States of America
    Class (AKA Specialty): Commando (Recon)
    Appearance: Armor with a skull face plate mask.

    Under the armor is red hair and hazel eyes. He is often referred to as "Skull Guy" because of his armor.

    Bio: Originally raised by adopted parents, his life turned upside down after the Emergence Entity took over. He was put into a facility to indoctrinate him into the peacekeepers. However, he refused to be their slave. Giving them the slip, he survived on the fringes and criminal underworld. During his time since escape, he formed valuable connections that helped him out more than once. This eventually did lead him to meet with Project Griffin.

    Personality: Brash, brave, and bold are the Three "B's" that describe him. Shooting first and asking questions later helped him survive on the streets. He isn't stupid, as he learned a thing or two about strategy and tactics during his lifetime. A man of few words, he knows for sure that actions speak louder. He prefers stealth first, then shotgun attacks. He is no slouch in melee. A machete to him is both a tool and a weapon at the same time.

    Name: Shahab Eftekhari
    Country of origin: United States of America
    Class (AKA Specialty): Bombardier
    Appearance:
    [​IMG]

    Under the armor is brownish-to-rusty hair, and green eyes. He often shaves, leaving a stubble under the gas mask.

    Bio: Born to Iranian-American immigrants, he was raised with two other siblings. They were all well off by the time the Xenos arrived. When his little brother was taken by the Emergence Entity, he stopped what he was doing and banded together with his sister to find him. He didn't think the Xenos were malicious until they came for the little brother. Working under the table with his sister, they eventually discovered Griffin and joined up.

    Personality: Tactful and refined, Shahab is well-mannered and diplomatic like most of his race. His goody two-shoes demeanor may be irritating to the jaded, but he merely wishes to prevent his organization (Griffin) from stooping down to the Xenos' levels. The Iranian-blooded bombardier believes that if they act barbaric, they'll be just like the Xenos they hate. He also advocates a logical and open-minded approach, believing that "if you are too close to the elephant, you won't see the whole elephant." The big picture must be reviewed before taking action.

    Name: Laleh "Lily" Eftekhari

    Country of origin: United States of America

    Class (AKA Specialty): Apothecary

    Appearance: Dyed dirty blonde hair typically in a bun, alabaster skin tone from avoiding the sun and copious amounts of sunscreen, brownish eyes typically concealed with sunglasses, and the overall size of a typical Persian woman. Her body is well sculpted and toned.

    Bio: Like her brother Shahab, she was raised in by the same Iranian immigrant family within the United States. She was studying medicine and graduated from medical school before the Emergence Entity was founded. Lily briefly worked at the Miracle Centers the Xenos set up until she left and fled the city. Disgusted by what happened, especially as their youngest and little brother was kidnapped, she joined Griffin along with her older brother Shahab.

    Personality: Persian princess on outside, humble on the inside. Lily prefers to get the job done rather than rely on others, with that mentality being shaped by her position as the middle sibling. She also has a habit of not trusting others outside of her family, as her brother was kidnapped by the Xenos. Alongside her brother, Lily brings everything she has to Griffin’s table.

    Sweet thanks! Had a question though.. in regards to the multiple character sheets, do we make three characters and then play each simultaneously within the story? Or are they just back ups that you keep on standby until you're first character dies within the story?

    You may do it as a whole squad OR as a lives system. So either or. If you want to play a whole squad, you may make all three characters at once. If you want reserves, the latter or lives system may be done.

    By the way, if I'm too slow in this format, we can do it in a Discord format if you wish.

    Same here. For me, Discord just requires a cup or two less coffee to use. :laughing: IE: It allows me to be faster.

    I'll work on getting a few characters ready to go then! Just to get a few out there I'll probably do two characters in the story and leave one back up for if both of them were to die. Is it just us or is there any others on board?

    And I am DerUbermensch#9465 on there. So far, it's just us for now unless others have revived interest. Though if you want, you may spread the word about the would-be RP.

    Name: Dominique Carter


    Country of origin: USA


    Class (AKA Specialty): Deadeye (Sniper)


    Appearance: Has tanned skin with lots of freckles and long wavy black hair with brown eyes. She usually keeps her hair pulled up into a messy bun.

    Gear: Wears a large dark green camo jacket, usually with the hood up to blend in, and a plaid red and grey bandana around her neck, which she pulls over her nose when she needs to hide her identity. She uses a hunting rifle as her weapon of choice, but keeps a hunting knife on standby in case she has to fight close quarters (though its only for emergencies as she’s not very skilled with a knife).


    Bio: Dom was raised with her twin brother in a small town out in the mountainous country of Northern California. The two were raised by their father after their mother died in a car accident, and soon after that very accident, the Xenos arrived. Because they lived in a small mountain town away from the rest of civilization, they remained somewhat unaffected. Dom continued to work and train as a hunter, and her brother Toni continued to work clinicals at the local hospital in training to become a nurse, though they noticed the difference from how it had been before. They began to see more and more propaganda on their TV, and eventually they heard more and more talk of her town being taken to a brand new facility for their own ‘wellbeing’ and ‘safety’. Many of the townspeople trusted this, believing the government wouldn't insist on this idea unless it was important, but others disagreed. Eventually, those that disagreed decided to make a daring escape before they arrived, and Dom insisted that Toni come with her, but Toni refused. Not wanting to leave their elderly father, he insisted that he'd find a way to convince their father to leave and meet up with her a few days after. Unfortunately though, moments after Dom and the others escaped, the town was invaded and those who refused to leave to the facility were taken by force. Unsure of what happened to her father and her brother, rather than stay with the townspeople and survive, she went on the hunt for a project she'd heard about in whispers in order to join in the fight to rescue her twin brother.


    Personality: (ISTJ-A) Precise, practical and dangerous are all words to describe Dom. She’s quiet, and certainly not a conversationalist, but she’s smart and calm under pressure, all of which help her in the field as a sniper.
