So was looking at more of this artists stuff that inspire the original idea and saw this (http://destinyblue.deviantart.com/art/TOXIC-444895229). Totally made me wonder what kind of things they are doing the "Marked" and if in the future we could see one of them brainwashed manning one of the living ships to come after folks/partner up with the hunter. Just more thoughts.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on June 17, 2014, 03:41:55 pm
That's an awesome picture. I really like the idea of brainwashing the Marked, personally. Especially if the indoctrinated Marked was someone Beau or Pach knew in the past.

What kind of government is the Alliance, Pere? Is it similar to that corporate super-government in Firefly, all authoritarian and what not?

Edit// Also, I've been thinking about the AIs. I like what we were saying before about AIs being developed in response to and in an attempt to copy the bio-ships that the Marked work with so well.

Drawing heavily from both Mass Effect and Halo, I like the idea of the AIs having their own personalities, as if the research into the bioships had effectively created artificial life, though they have no idea how it really 'works'. Because of their ignorance in what they created they worry what an AI is capable of, but are more greedy in the multitude of opportunities an AI presents, the Alliance limits those powerful sentient computers to their own military/police/task forces and inhibit them directly with human programmed 'shackles', like EDI in Mass Effect or the Three Laws of Robotics in I, Robot.

So the AI can perform amazing calculations and can run the ship as effectively as an actual crew, but are still subject to following human commands at the price of reduced functionality and snarky, sarcastic comments from the AI.  I'm playing with the idea of my hunter unshackling the AI that will run his ship and treating the AI more like his partner than a tool.

Sorry for the rambling, lol. What does everyone else think?

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 17, 2014, 10:39:58 pm
I'm thinking sort of all encompassing/authoritarian government with the mock appearance of a republic. Meaning there is a core government that has representatives from each planet and the planets have representatives from different parts of the planet- trickle down government sort of- but where there is a "council" with an elected council leader that really is the group in power.

So Firefly with a, before the empire, Star Wars feel to it... if that makes sense.

Again, I'm working on planet descriptions and some more wordage for the government/military officials, but if anyone wants to chime in on any of that stuff, you can totally put it here or pm me.

And I'm totally on board with the AI stuff. =]
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 18, 2014, 12:25:47 am
Would there be colonies set up over the planets? I saw something about the domes you mentioned but I didn't know if that was the same thing. Or would you say that most people inhabit Earth and the other planets instead? I keep having this idea that my character would be from a specific colony that was destroyed long ago (for whatever reasons, can't think of a legit one right now. Maybe accidental?)

I took the idea someone mentioned of being genetically altered, but instead I thought about her being a Marked originally, rescued from the destroyed colony and genetically altered to have human characteristics (like a disguise to hide her origins). I am thinking whoever saved her would be some sort of doctor/scientist combo working with the government to study and pair the marked with ships.

This may have been said before, but I have been skimming the replies and pulling out stuff related to what I've had in mind, but would it be safe to say there are groups against the research and utilization of the Marked races remaining? Like a rebel group who fears what could become an army and feels as if the research should be put to a stop?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 18, 2014, 05:01:40 am
Pach, it's actually the other way around- The government(the Alliance) does not want the Falinian People aka "The Marked" to exist, except where they are doing experiments on them to uncover the secrets of living ships. The Resistance was formed to protect the Falinian people and to stop a tyrannically minded Alliance from continuing to grow and solidify.

The way I picture it, there are still people back on Earth, but it's sort of considered antiquated to still be living there. I'm trying to get a post up about the new planets- beyond races that were found on some- but where there was the possibility of Terra forming of an entire planet to suite the needs of humans, it was done. Where it wasn't feasible to terraform an entire planet- either because of the races already living there, or because it wouldn't take on a large scale- there are terradomes: whole interconnected cities on some planets, to cities separated by large tracks of inhospitable land between on the outer rim planets.

Okay... I'm just going to work on a post about Inner Core Planets- the ABC's and what they constitute and Outer core planets that are more like small colonies/communities- poorer, dirtier, less tech, etc.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 18, 2014, 05:14:02 am
Thanks for explaining! That actually makes it easier for me to write my char's backstory. I'll try to have a post up soon ^^
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on June 18, 2014, 05:32:26 am
Pach, where is your character going to be? Are you part of the Anne crew?  On the planet?  With Pride's character?

Oh, and I like the AI as a sidekick idea, Pride.  I sort of had that envisioned for you before you mentioned it.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 18, 2014, 06:12:56 am
Well for now I have her alone. Let me know if you wanna collaborate or meet up!
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on June 18, 2014, 07:12:52 am
Actually, I was thinking it might work if the three of us were on the Anne.  I'm definitely the one making all the noise at the moment, but I'm assuming the ship has more crew than the two of us.

Indeed - Peregrine- how many people should be on the ship?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 18, 2014, 08:06:02 am
I'd say... less than 20 for sure, 15 or less most likely, if I'm being realistic - I'd really prefer around 10, but with the size ship and pirating enterprise, it'd have to be at least 10.

I totally thought we were going to be picking up Pach when we stopped to pick up cargo, have a dashing off to keep from getting caught, but I could see Pach on board as well, maybe more high profile... wanted, since they know about her? Dunno... more discussion?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on June 18, 2014, 08:48:26 am
I also like the idea of Pach being planet side, as I imagine her being newly 'Marked' and all that would make her my hunter's target. The catalyst for her joining the crew/hopping on the ship can be my hunter pursuing her, him arriving just in time to see the name of the ship before it takes off. Cue chasing the crew around the galaxy, etc etc.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 18, 2014, 09:03:20 am
Yeah that could work! Pride, perhaps he could have been hunting her for the past day or two? I am thinking that she will have some other "wanted" qualities besides just being marked. I had imagined her in a little bit of debt among other things. Still working all that out. Perhaps when she is scooped up by the Anne, she hides those little details from the Captain? Haha unless that wouldn't matter to the crew.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on June 18, 2014, 03:49:46 pm
That sounds good to me. Though I doubt the more relatively minor things like having debts will matter much to Orion, who will be hired by the Alliance to capture her for her unique abilities, not her gambling problem/poor handling of money/reason for being in debt.

And from the way the 'Marked' seem to be essentially criminals in the eyes of all those loyal to the Alliance, I imagine your character Pach would probably find it safer to claim she's being chased because of those debts rather than the mark on her body. Even newly 'Marked', she would know enough about them to know it's best to hide that kind of thing, yeah? One never knows how sympathetic or greedy/patriotic another might be. Then perhaps Beau's character can suspect the truth and lead to drama time on the ship.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 19, 2014, 05:01:14 am
Ah, true. Guess it could just be a hole she dug deeper. Sounds like she is going to be quite reckless. I'm excited about cat and mouse.

Peregrine, what would you say the mark looks like? Specifically the shape, since you mentioned the color of it. Or would it just be unique to the person like a regular birthmark would be?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 19, 2014, 05:22:47 am
Each of the marks are different- like the pictures I put up.... not necessarily a hand print and an arm tattoo- but maybe they could be? Maybe they can't change the fact that they have it, but maybe something about them determines what it looks like? Or they can learn a level of control over their gifts and can eventually manipulate them into shapes/designs/etc.

ahem, four, yo. i'll be posting soonish. my dude bro is human and other than once being part of the resistance, a weapons enthusiast, and a decent pilot, he's pretty boring.

edit: posteddddd. i added some ptsd/synthetic arm for drama or something like that. aka my slight jet reference.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on June 19, 2014, 06:57:30 pm
Yeah, more crew!

I honestly will try to post tonight.  Work has been horrific.  THe post is sitting in my head, I just have to get my fingers into something other than a spreadsheet.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 19, 2014, 09:46:28 pm
Yay! More posts!! Whoot!

Also- I edited the "information (http://www.paragraphite.com/index.php?topic=207.msg4934#msg4934)" post with "known/suspected abilities" in the race section, then added some information on planets, terradomes, etc.

If anyone wants info added to this post- ideas you've got, things you think the Alliance would have a record for, etc. let me know/send me a pm/post it here and I'll edit it in what have you. I've got a general idea of how this verse looks, but by no means have I explored all the possibilities!

I'll mention here, the info on each of the planets has what I called and ASD number, Alliance Stand Day number. It is sort of a number to go along with how fast you can travel from the sun(Nova) to a said planet or between planets/places if you subtract their ASD numbers. This travel time is with a standard "light drive" on a ship. With modification to a ship, or breakdowns that number will fluctuate- I just wanted us to sort of have a "standard" for how long it took to get to a place-ish, since they are in space and don't exactly have "formal" days.

Annnnyyyyyway... I'm just super excited. =]
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on June 20, 2014, 03:32:48 am
So, my intro didn't come off quite as I planned, so I figured I'd share here the details I couldn't muster.  MacIntyre is the only name he really uses -- if Mac gave a first name somewhere along the way everyone has conveniently forgotten it.  Brownish hair, blue eyes.  He's going to be a mass of contraditions - formal and informal all at the same time.  He'll have the personality that should be approachable, but everyone is at arms length.  And, I figure though that he calls the Captain by title because she intimidates him.

Maybe Raleigh and Mac can be roommates?  We can always have a third spare bunk in the event Pride's character makes it on board.  Might be fun tension.

that's fine with me.

also, Peregrine, any kind of particular info on what kind of weapons will be used? we doing this star trek stun/kill gun, futuristic bullets, lasers, or whatever else i may not have mentioned.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 20, 2014, 04:54:38 am
Haha, I can totally see Andy intimidating pretty much everyone! Well... maybe not Raleigh, at least not all the time.

I just realized I never described Andy in my post either, so I suppose here goes- She's a dirty caramel blond, with muddy green eyes, she's pretty tall, 5'10-5'11 ish? She's a Chima/Human mix and not really proud of it- and there are some things about her because of her mixed race that will get brought up in the thread. I will say she has the spinal scales, but she keeps them covered- she wears a scarf around her neck (cowboy style) almost all the time if she's not alone.

Lightening- maybe Raleigh knows? Or at least suspects? Maybe she was there when he lost his arm? How well are we thinking they know each other?

Andy's not unfriendly, but she doesn't get close to people often or easily, and she takes her ship, and her freedom because of it, very seriously. You screw with either of those, or those she cares about and you're going to see the cold, 02-less side of an air lock.

 
also, Peregrine, any kind of particular info on what kind of weapons will be used? we doing this star trek stun/kill gun, futuristic bullets, lasers, or whatever else i may not have mentioned.

As for weapons- umm... less star trek more Battlestar Galactica and Firefly- meaning, weapons with modern bullets/lasers, not so much the stunning bit. More gritty, and resource available reloads.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Lightning on June 20, 2014, 05:07:22 am
bullets and lasers? sweet. i like that. so like, bullets for more planetary things? you know, where gravity is present and those things are actually useful. and space for the lasers? like on the ships and what not?

as for how well Raleigh and Andy know each other, he might have some suspicion? unless you think it's better storywise for him to know. if he does know, he wouldn't be the type to talk about it. he can be pretty tight lipped at times.

she can also be there when he lost his arm, if you want. i left the voice he heard as non-specific but it could be Andy's, freaking out if he's dead or not.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 20, 2014, 05:17:58 am
Ahh! I love the idea of her being the one freaking out in his memories, and I honestly don't mind either way-him knowing or not knowing. I'd think they're pretty good friends. Battle buddies for sure- a closeness that keeps them a bit apart together when in a group of others? Does that make sense?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Lightning on June 20, 2014, 05:54:33 am
awesome. well, if he knows, it would probably mean Andy trusts him quite a bit no? i mean she's hiding it because she doesn't want to be judged for it and stuff right? i do love the idea of them being good friends/battle buddies. watching each other's back and the like~

and yeah, i think i get ya. probably.

Post by: Pach_Work on June 20, 2014, 08:39:41 am
Wrote that half-asleep. Forgive me if it's littered with spelling errors because my fingers get lazy typing at 1:30 am
:cow:

I made my character unaware of the fact that she was "adopted" and genetically operated on to give her the mark and abilities of the marked. But she will find out soon enough.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 20, 2014, 08:41:23 am
I'm glad someone understands my ramblings. ^_^ It's settled then. =]

Pach! That was beautifully done! No worries at all!

After Pride posts, I think we'll have the crew of the Anne time Jump to them arriving on Falinia, so that we can meet up with Georgia.

EDIT:
Lightening- I found this deleted scene clip from Firefly that describes the Captain of the Ship - Mal (he's a dude) by his battle buddie Zoe, that I think is a good description of maybe Andy, and the strong connection between two people that have seen hell together. It's a little long, but really describes how I see the situation and Andy. I don't see her as a commander in the wars, but affected the way it describes.Click (http://youtu.be/5FFO-QaBjoc?t=32s)
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Lightning on June 20, 2014, 09:39:16 am
i loved the clip. and i think it gave me and anyone who watches it, a better impression of how you to view your character. btw, it wasn't long at all~

i'm really looking forward to this thread guys!

Post by: Beau on June 24, 2014, 04:10:57 am
Pride, I really, really liked your post.

Question though -- did your character kill the crew, or did you just happen on them and pick up the reward money? I'm looking to understand exactly how coldblooded you wanted to be.

Peregrine -- are we going to go shopping together?  OR do you want Mac to handle that, and you worry about the cargo pick up.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on June 24, 2014, 04:19:12 am
Thanks. And he killed them straight up, yo. Contract was to eliminate the Alliance captain defecting to the rebels and bringing a stolen AI and prototype ship with him as tokens of trust.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on June 24, 2014, 06:10:39 am
Kudos all of you, very nice posts.

Beau- I'd say a mixture of both maybe? I would like a low level of action/violence this first time around. I think Andy and co are tough, but even combined I can't decide if they could take on Orion/Jon, not just yet at least.

It might be a couple days before I post here or anywhere though (for those waiting in other threads), I seem to have caught the mother of all stomach flues and I can barely sit up and write this. Blurgh.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on June 24, 2014, 06:59:55 am
I would like a low level of action/violence this first time around.

Agreed. I was thinking maybe a minor chase scene near the end of this bit on Falinia, concluding with Orion arriving at the dock just in time to watch the Queen take off into the atmosphere.

I hope you feel better soon, Peregrine. Being sick sucks.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 24, 2014, 07:05:35 am
Feel better Peregrine :( I hardly ever get sick but when I do I'm miserable. Hopefully you'll make a speedy recovery!

I was debating on ideas of how I could get on board the Anne. Should she sneak, enlist help from the Captain? Maybe try her hand at seducing one of the male crew mates?  I'm up for suggestions, guys. XD
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on June 24, 2014, 07:11:00 am
My vote is you offer your services in some way - that can be done overtly (hey, I'm a pretty good XYZ) or you could appeal to someone's sympathy.  I think Lightenings character might be an interesting target for you.  Even Andy - woman to woman - might be worth convincing. 

Another option would be to pay for passage

A third would be to stowaway.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Lightning on June 24, 2014, 10:44:24 pm
get well soon, p!

hm, can't say Raleigh is very sympathetic. he does like to drink though, if that helps in any way. a drunk Raleigh could prove easier to work with.

I think anything would work, really.  especially since this crew doesn't seem to mind sticking it to the alliance.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on June 24, 2014, 11:10:16 pm
I sort of like the idea of drunk Raleigh bringing home a stray cat (or maybe the cat helps you home and moves in) and then having to explain to mom why she has another mouth to feed.  Drama.

Of course Mac gets the litterbox to scoop since he'll figure out the marked to marked thing once he puts two and two together with the chase scene.

All figuratively of course.

Oh, and yeah - feel better soon P.  etc. etc.  I'm happy plotting for now.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on June 26, 2014, 04:48:26 am
All of Beau's cat references and then the little kitten in an American flag bucket is too much for me :'D  :catpile: But I like this idea too. Conversations with drunk people are usually entertaining, and seeing the sober counterpart grow impatient with the drunkenness is always funny too.

We could always do a joint post if it comes to that, Lightning. What do you think?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Lightning on June 26, 2014, 08:17:44 pm
I'm down with some joint post action.

Okay, back on my feet! Wahhoo for feeling better!

As for getting on the ship, I'd say Raleigh or stowing away is your best bet. At this point I don't think Andy is going to be a super sympathetic captain, since she already has one marked crew member and is flying a semi-legal ship.

Once she's on... well that's another story.

I was seeing the whole chase thing getting mixed up as either Andy thinking they are coming after Mac, or her ship, or both- Pride I have some thoughts I'm going to be PMing you to see what you think.

I'll try and get a post up today/tonight to at least get us moving again. Thanks for the patience!

I present to you The Queen Anne's Reveng (http://kuren.deviantart.com/art/Alien-Space-Fighter-197621550). I've been keeping an eye out for one that I thought felt right for how I pictured her. It isn't how I originally pictured it, but this feels right. =]

Big enough to be able to have some "personal" sized ships, small enough to fly under the radar type deal.

Anyway... I was excited so I shared. =]

i like it~ wicked imagery going on there.

also, i've posted~ Raleigh kind of sort of bumped into your guy Jon, Pride, if that's cool~ i figured he's kind of unavoidable lol. it could also possibly be a reason to not notice Georgia, if you needed one btw.

pach, i'm ready for some joint posting if you need some. Raleigh's just gonna keep drinking till the day seems better, which possibly means never.

Post by: Pride on June 27, 2014, 03:27:06 pm
Cool with me. And yeah, that's a convenient excuse not to notice Georgia immediately; he probably won't realize she's in the restaurant  for some reason I'll figure out eventually until after she's talked with Raleigh. Maybe he'll only notice once the two are leaving, maybe when Georgia's hat falls off accidentally or something?

Hey fellas, the only thing I'd be aware of is that I tried to set "the crew" time table back those couple of hours so that there would be an opening for Georgia to get on the Anne before Orion caught her and the crew could pick stuff up with some haste, but not on the run so to speak.

Not saying we can't change the time table, I just went off of Prides "10:00 AST" and set it back a bit for the rest. Suppose it would be more drama if they were hanging out around each other for that time though?

Just wanted to check in with everyone.

Beau and I are working on a joint post and it looks like Pach and Lightening as well?

Pride, did you want Orion to be the dude that got bumped into, so he's prowling around? Or did you have something else you had in mind? Maybe there are two or three similar cafe/restaurants so he has to search for a bit? Or Maybe Georgia really is just that good at evasion. ^_^ That'd be good too.

Been a busy hectic day. I got a post up elsewhere, but still have a few things to do and we're having a really awesome thunder/lightening/down pour right now, so power is iffy.

I actually wouldn't mind waiting. I have a semi-brain plotted post, but I don't think it will form up until after your post Beau, so I'll most likely wait... unless my brain strikes lightening and the physical lightening doesn't knock our power out.

Looks like I'm up to bat. Where do we want to go with the plot next? I intend to write Orion returning to the Erebus, but I'm not sure what direction I should be pointing him in now.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on July 16, 2014, 07:50:55 pm
I'd say he gets some information about Rochester- who's sort of an outer rim barren type deal- he has a lot of power on several planets and colonies.

He could also look into Andy, Georgia, and the Anne more now that he knows they are together. I figure Andy and the crew have been careful about not getting caught, but that doesn't mean they haven't left a trail or contacts along the way. They have to be getting their jobs and deliveries from somewhere, smuggling brokers and what not.

I figure Andy will be gathering her crew soon to inform some of them of the danger they are in. I don't know if Georgia will be outed for a Marked just yet, as I think it would be more dramatic if they had another run in or two with Orion before everyone knew, though Mac might figure it out pretty quick.

Maybe they have to set down at one of their "safe harbors" just outside or just inside the inner core, for repairs that Mac didn't get to do.

I think there could be all sorts of things- They run into the former Pirates that Andy got Mac from. Someone from Raleigh's more recent past pops up that could stir trouble? Would Georgia need any kind of medication to keep her stable since she had her genes and such all mashed up? They pick up a side job someone hears about and Orion catches wind of it, or he set a trap maybe?

I'm just spit balling here. Anyone else have any idea they want to see happen/pictured taking place? Let's do those too.

I'll be working on a post tomorrow, though it may not be up until Saturday, depending.

Since we have basically three groups moving in different arcs at the moment, don't worry about waiting for me to post. If we want Orion to get involved directly with either the Anne crew or Dominic's forces, just let me know. For the moment, I'll follow Per's advice and have Orion do some recon on Rochester while flushing out his relationship with Nine a bit more.

Also, for better to worse, I believe I'll be playing the role of Adam. The flashback potential is real.

Thanks ^^ and welcome to the new guy! I'll be posting soon, almost done with mine. And yes, I had planned on having Georgia experience "episodes" though I had imagined them to be rare. She could be on meds for that. Maybe an injection of some sort. She knows she has to take it, but she doesn't know why.

I'm going to PM you with details, Pere, just to be sure what I am thinking is allowed (and makes sense).

Post by: Beau on July 20, 2014, 04:20:52 pm
Ah, this is the trouble my character gets into when he takes his shirt off.   *smirk*

Okay, I figure Raleigh has guessed Mac is marked because over the course of the year of bunking together he's probably seen something.  Pach knows and so does Andy, obviously, but the rest of the crew should be relatively oblivious to the type of ship and crew.   Everybody has their secrets.

As for Pach's character I figure Mac can wander into the kitchen and try to teach her how to cook for some comic relief.  He won't know she's marked, that will have to come out in some other awkward moment. Mac paying attention to a third woman should make things rocky, particularly if Raleigh likes her too.

In fact, Raleigh should go all 'big brother' about Andy at some point.   We need a fist fight or something...maybe some heavy duty drinking (which Mac never does).   Then he could reveal that the Anne isn't his first.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on July 20, 2014, 07:00:25 pm
Okay, since I've gotten several questions about it via PM's and I totally didn't make it clear... well anywhere and I've been discussing things with multiple people so I'll just put the culmination of it all here for everyone and probably add it to the "info" post at the beginning of the thread.

The War
Grumblings and small fighting started 15ish years ago when Marked Falinian's started to go missing. Not all Falinian's are Marked, though roughly 57% of the population at the time was. Non-marked Falinians cannot bond with gen-zero ships. THE WAR started 10-12ish years ago when the Resistance was really formed and battles broke out on multiple planets in the verse to fight against Alliance control and genocide.

Andy joined the Resistance at 17 when it broke out, but didn't get into the fighting until 18 when she could officially enlist. She lost Adam at 19, and I figure she met Raleigh not to terribly long after that. She was there when he lost his arm I believe we decided?

The fighting lasted until 5 years ago when General Doom *cough* excuse me General Dominic killed/captured/destroyed (leaving this up to Iorveth) 10 passenger carriers full of Marked/and or their families. They had gathered on Leaimatia moon to strike out into the outer core and resettle, and it was kept very quiet, but Dominic found out and was waiting for them. After the newly introduced AI ships, and being vastly outnumbered, and the devastation and loss of so many, the Resistance General - Simon Frye a human-  with the support of his command negotiated the terms of surrender and is assumed to have been executed or imprisoned. His wife and children were marked on the transport ships.

Some of the main terms of the surrender was that all Falinians become tagged and a genetic profile drawn. Any marked Falinian born now to non-marked Falinians (which is rare but happens) is taken into custody of the Alliance. Falinian's are still about the verse, but they are closely watched. Any Falinian found to not be tagged one year after the war can be imprisoned for failure to comply. Any and all non-Falinian Resistance fighters were processed through Allied disarmament camps at the end of the war and their Allied file reflects their time of disloyalty. If they showed to much aversion to being integrated back into Allied life, they were jailed.

The Alliance spun the yarn that the ships were attack vessels, but anyone involved with the resistance knows better. Among those left that fought for independence for the Falinian Marked Dominic is known as the "Red Ripper" and his ship is known as "The Bloody Mary", neither of which will be said if they don't know all in present company since it shows where their allegiances lie. If the Alliance catches any old reintegrated Resistance fighters doing anything questionable they jail or kill them.

Anyone can make up any battles and where they took place, ground or space. Make up a unit they fought in, a place that was bombed or retreated from, or what have you. Anyone can make up chain of command down from General Frye, etc. It was an interplanetary war, mostly fought on the edges of the core and just outside it, so there is a LOT of area that can be covered.

Thoughts/Ideas/Comments are always welcome and appreciated. ^_^ Hope this clears things up a bit.

*EDIT* On a completely other note- I think it would be super fun to have Raleigh freak out at Mac for Andy's sake, maybe just for the fact that she isn't stitched up yet and is now in an emotional state he hasn't seen anything similar to in since he lost his arm and almost died?

I figure Andy is going to go after Georgia, interrupting whatever Mac was saying/or not saying/or doing to clear up whatever. Andy, after some sleep most likely, isn't going to take as easily to the idea that she has brewing that he only kissed her to get access to Anne.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on July 20, 2014, 07:46:22 pm
Quote from: Iorveth
so. do the Falinian's view the marked as more important people.. sort of like a chosen by god sort of thing
not saying theres a religious thing but is there something that elevates them above anyone else

I wouldn't say elevated, as they can come from any social class, more along the lines of valued. I think it is such an ingrained part of their society that they aren't exactly set above, but set apart. I think maybe they had more opportunities allowed them- more contact with gen-zero ships certainly- than regular Falinians.

Maybe there was a mentor type process when a Mark showed up? Adam was already "upper class" so there wasn't much he didn't have. Beau- you're playing a Falinian Marked, what did you picture?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on July 20, 2014, 09:28:14 pm
If 57% of the population was marked then they couldn't have been that special really.  If it were less, then I could see them being special, but that's the majority of the population...so...

I guess they were just talented.  Perhaps revered outside - sort of useful?  I don't know.  I wasn't planning on using my powers for the betterment of humanity.  Mac isn't the type you'd put on a pedestel. *chuckle*

He's sooo misunderstood.  Seriously, he's been pretty plain with Andy.  That baggage is heavy.

What planet are we heading for?  Will Prides post foreshadow our next stop?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on July 20, 2014, 10:14:07 pm
Might be cute for Mac to teach Georgia how to cook. Would give Andy more reasons to hate her, hah. Beau, you didn't mention Mac noticing Georgia's intrusion, so I assume he'd be oblivious to the face that she knows he is a Marked?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on July 20, 2014, 11:04:17 pm
Well... we can certainly make it a smaller portion of the society if folks were picturing less. I don't mind either way honestly and I want things to mirror how folks see it.

Lightening and Pach if you aren't averse, I was wondering if we might do a little bit of round robin joint posting?  After Lightening gets a chance to let us all know what Raleigh has been up to- flying the ship, neglecting the ship, drinking, sleeping... spying on Georgia. You know, whatever ^_^

As for where they are headed, I figured they would stop on one of the planets to do some repairs that need to be done before they push out past the core to meet up with Rochester. I was thinking theh planet with the sentient/mind readers.

In between now and getting to Rochester we can do anything really. Did you have something in mind?

*EDIT* Beau, just read the IC post, and wanted to make sure you knew, even if Mac didn't- that Andy said the thing about being quiet to Anne. I figure it works either way.

Yes, I got that from your perspective.  From his though if he thought you were talking to him then it explains why he doesn't paw you while you work.  Because it could really be like a three-some there...maybe a foursome.

In other news if the marked were 7% then I would see them being more rare.  On the other hand mass genecide with the ships sort of accomplishes the same thing.  So, either way we have rare in present day who then might be more something to fear than to be revered.

Also- not so much the face tattoos, but this is how I picture Andy (http://omupied.deviantart.com/art/Specter-217157145)

i assumed Raleigh would be flying the ship, as he thinks Andy is getting her wounds treated. i didn't really see a point in making a post about that but i can if you all want. it won't be much though. as always, i'm down for some joint post action anytime.

i can also do this flipping out thing that i believe was  mentioned earlier. i'm not really sure when and where though...

I'm still working on my post. I don't want to throw up just a wall of Nine/Orion interaction, so I'm trying to fit some relevancy in there.

Also, I've been meaning to ask, but is lightening a different of way spelling lightning outside of the US? I know some places like the UK have different spellings for certain words (color, colour), so I was curious if that was the case with lightning too.

 the way the name is spelt usually would refer to brightening something up,  as in  to lighten something,  making something lighter in colour.

Sam is right. My problem is spell check. I get typing fast and write it wrong and select the wrong "correct" word from the red squiggle drop down list.

Sorry Lightning, I do try and get it correct. &_&

Post by: Lightning on July 22, 2014, 05:32:25 am
you have! i noticed the change in spelling awhile back and i appreciate it. for some reason, any username i have tends to get misspelled. i'm beginning to think i should stick to something really simple haha.

also, pach and i are almost done with our joint post, i think. should be up soonish.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on July 22, 2014, 05:51:09 am
Don't feel bad. My username is constantly spelled "Patch." It's actually kind of embarrassing, because I am sure y'all thought I just misspelled patch >> But it's just a nickname I've had since junior high on my tennis team when my teammates shortened my last name.

Post by: Lightning on July 22, 2014, 10:19:32 am
i was always wondering what the origin of your username was, pach. i'm pretty use to spelling it as pach, btw, but this may be because you've had the same username for ages, even on the site that shall not be named.

also, the post is up and has been up for a bit now~ sorry for the late update.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on July 22, 2014, 05:21:35 pm
Oh, I see. Thank you for the clarification.

Pach, I've never really have any issue with your name because you started a thread wayyy back in like...09, I think, that I really enjoyed. I was sad when it didn't pan out, probably because of my flakiness, but your name always stuck out to me afterwards.

I'm working on my post at this very moment. Ior, I intend to leave off with Orion contacting Dom about the situation with Georgia and Andy. If you want to extend that conversation, shoot me a PM. If not, feel free to make of it what you will.

Wait, now I know why that AI suggestion seemed so familiar to me! YOU were the one that included the idea in my old thread back then!!! Ahhh, that's right Pride! I totally remember now! What was your old username? It's been bugging me since we all moved over here.

GEMINI was one of the only successful threads I started (meaning people were interested in it, hah.) I have always thought about trying to start it up again but I am a terrible thread leader. I have anxiety about no one joining.

Guys, I'm so old. I've been a member of that site since 2004.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on July 22, 2014, 09:26:47 pm
Posted. I hope it's suitable. Please don't hesitate to let me know if there is anything I should edit.

And haha Pach, I had completely forgotten that my character in GEMINI had an AI companion until you mentioned it just now. Five years later and here I am thinking I'm doing something original, that figures. Her name was Libra, iirc, to go with the zodiac theme. And my username was Emarka.

Ooh behind the scenes villain work. Love it!

I found the old thread and read it while I was bored at work. We really didn't make it that far >.< And I only remember the AI companion because I wished I'd thought of that. I was super original and made my character's companion a kitten. I was 19 in 2009...you would have thought I was 6 with that idea.

*tries not to walk down memory lane*

Anyway, are we going to do a time jump to breakfast the next day on the ship?  Do we want to have dinner together instead?  What's the relative plan/timing.  Pach and I talked about meeting in the kitchen but we need some input from Light and Pere about action on the ship.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on July 23, 2014, 07:18:32 pm
You actually read my late night musing Beau. I'm working on a time jump post.

As for the plan, I was figuring that they would need to stop somewhere to do some repairs that can't be done while flying. It could be another planet/moon in the core or a space station of some sort or what not.

I thought that Orion or Hyatt could have put an alert out on the coretex for Alliance officials to be on the look out for their class of ship, because obviously Andy doesn't use real paper work or ID scans for the Anne, it would give them some time before they were figured out. I figure Nine was too advanced to not be able to read through the fake IDent stuff, but other places wouldn't be.

I figure they also need to pick up the long range wave(message) from Rochester on where they are meeting to deliver his cargo.

These are just ideas, mind, if anyone else has something they had brewing/really wanted to do next, let's do that.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on July 24, 2014, 03:43:17 am
Pach and I will put together a quick making breakfast post.    Setting down sounds good.  They could even be on the planet when another ship does a flyby.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on July 25, 2014, 07:15:40 pm
Just letting everyone know that Ior and I are in the process of making a joint post. It'll likely conclude with their moving to find Rochester from his last known location and the beginnings of Adam's involvement to bring the Anne out of hiding.

Just so everyone knows, I'll be going out of town this Friday and won't be returning until Thursday evening. I probably won't have time to write any posts, but I'll likely have the opportunity to respond to both PMs and OOCs, so I'll be keeping an eye out.  I don't think Orion is too pressing at this point in the story to keep anyone from posting, but I'm sorry for the inconvenience.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on August 08, 2014, 06:35:09 am
Thanks for the heads up folks!

I figured there would be a few posts still on the ship, and then we could skip to getting to the space port for their stay.

I'd like to say they stay there a day or two before someone is on to them. That way they can make repairs, I'm assuming Mac is going to stick around?

After that length of time either something dramatic happens- anything really, but a few ideas could be someone recognizes the ship or someone from the ship- Georgia, Mac, Andy, Orion catches their trail, Adam is somehow hinted at, Dominic sends a patrol through, or if none of that happens and they simply have to leave because they have to make the rendezvous with Rochester.

Anyway, just thoughts to churn out or over in the next bit. =]
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on August 14, 2014, 02:42:43 am
Mac will be sticking.  I figure he has his own agenda and maybe he can make at least a truce with Andy in the next post.   Vacations leading to quiet, I figured I shouldn't rush too far ahead, but since that's coming to a close I'll try to kick something off with Pere in the next day or so.

It might be nice to hear more about the clones and if our resident bad guy knows he's a clone or if he just knows there is an info leak.   Could be some interesting introspection if he doesn't know.

I too would like to know if Dom knows he's a clone or not. I imagine he does, since he's an evil villain type, but if he didn't, that would be interesting.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on August 14, 2014, 06:00:08 pm
I'm thinking my next post will be Orion moving Adam into play. What world would the Alliance be keeping their captured Marked on? I'd assume their capital world, but I can see the value in a secret facility on a remote planet.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on August 14, 2014, 07:19:31 pm
Well... Besselian is the Alliance seat. But it's pretty far away. I'd say some place in the middle of the core planets, but maybe a moon or something that people don't really know is colonized? Or maybe they do. Most of those that live in the inner core are of the opinion that the Alliance is wonderful, so they wouldn't really care if the marked were locked up.

Top secret omega moon shadow base alpha (name pending) sounds good to me.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Iorveth on August 14, 2014, 08:29:13 pm
the way i see it , Dom knows full well that he is a clone, thats a part of what makes him so dangerous, He cares not for the body that he is in, because there is always a backup waiting.

And i like the idea of the prison moon with a research lab in it.

EDIT: No one feel obligated to respond for Fin. I just figured Georgia would use the opportunity to ask him some general questions about the crew before she snuck a needle or something out of the Med bay.

No worries. Life happens! It appears there are many messes needing cleaned up. 

I'm currently sitting around waiting for a plumber that was coming "This afternoon" to fix a toilet that has been apparently leaking for some time and making a mess of the bathroom ceiling and walls below it in our basement. *face palm* It didn't flood, and was a slow leak, but damage and annoyingness none the less.

*EDIT* Pach I saw this (http://dandelion-s.deviantart.com/art/Snow-White-367785708) and it totally made me think of poor Georgia being experimented on
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on August 24, 2014, 12:16:18 am
Alright, we're officially at the Space Station/Port place.

Looks like a 2-3 day stop so that would give some time for Dom to do some digging/plotting/information getting giving on their whereabouts/where they are headed, Orion to do some hunting/picking up of Adam, Raleigh to do whatever he wants, Georgia time to prove her worth and stay with the crew/tell them the truth perhaps, and Mac to fix the ship, or really anything anyone has planned or wants to do.

I'd like for there to be a build up a little bit, instead of a really fast confrontation and flee, but I do think there needs to be another near miss of some sort in the near future.

Thanks all!

Oh, and just because I want to do it to my hair at some point, this (http://media-cache-ec0.pinimg.com/736x/fa/62/d8/fa62d8df8fd1300eff5adb719eb787f7.jpg) is what I sort of pictured Andy's hair looking like in the last post.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on August 24, 2014, 06:27:48 am
Wait...I must have missed something. I haven't had Georgia go back to the engine room yet. She was by Andy's bedroom and then she was in the med bay. Am I confusing myself? Is Andy's room the same as the engine room?

Also, that picture is great and so is the hairstyle. I am pretty good at braiding/french braiding hair, I bet I could do that if I messed around a little and I had as much hair as that model did.

I want to figure out a way I can get Georgia reunited with the Seraphim...might have to come way later in the plot but she could prove her worth by piloting if needed? Maybe in an emergency situation. I thought having her tell them the truth would make them want her off the ship more.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on August 24, 2014, 06:59:48 am
We did a bit of a time skip. It's about an hour-hour and a halfish after Raleigh and Andy were talking.

I believe we(Beau and I) both assumed Georgia would go exploring in that time and get herself in a bit of trouble. Or... Anne could be lying because she is afraid of what will happen with two Marked on board at a rocky time and she wants Andy to keep Mac since she is connected to him.

I'd say Andy might be more pissed if she lies, but I honestly don't know at this point. I'd have to see how it played out to know if she was going to react be a mother hen and take her in and protect her, or a mama bear that is angry and trying to protect was is known but begrudgingly adopts her at the insistence of the other cubs.

I hope that makes sense, it's been a long day and my house feels like a sauna since the heaters are chugging along trying to clean up the bathroom mess, which is affecting my brain.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pach_Work on August 24, 2014, 07:12:54 am
Ah I see! I dunno, Georgia is kind of intimidated by Andy, but she also is not really a fan of authority so she might wander by if no one was watching. If she finds out Mac is staying, she would definitely be sucking up, but mostly in fear of being kicked off or suspected of something.

I think it may come down to her having to reveal her little problem. Two marked on one ship! Won't Andy love that?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on August 24, 2014, 04:03:45 pm
Pach, I was referring to the one time she was in the engine room when Mac/Andy didn't see her.  (only now I realize Andy did bust her for that...)  I didn't intend to imply she went back, but what Peregrine above said holds I suppose.  Anne might be lying, although, wow, that opens up all sorts of interesting doors.

And I figure its more like 2-3 hours after Andy and Raleigh talked.  Mac showed up an hour after, so unless he's a realllyyy fast worker then we should probably have a bit of a time gap.

I've burned all my flirting material.  We should probably have some firefighting or other drama.  Maybe add pirates to the mix?  Could be that they try to steel Pach's ship and mess with Orion?  Doesn't he have the ship?  Remind me who captured it.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on August 24, 2014, 07:23:05 pm
Ahh, yes. 2-3 works, I wasn't thinking about the gap between when Andy sent the message and when Mac actually showed up.

I just threw the idea of Anne lying out, but it is a bit appealing.

I was thinking that there was going to be some drama at the port.

I've been mulling it over for awhile now and I've settle on the fact that Rochester is sort of a Dread Pirate Roberts/Count of Montecristo/Mr. Universe sort of deal, except not only one person at a time. There is a real "Rochester" but there are also many "fake" ones that act under the instruction and name of the real one.

I was thinking Rochester has caught wind of the kerfuffle on Falinia and is irritated, maybe gives them false coordinates while really trying to take the information while they are at the port. I could also see other Pirates/Smugglers trying to come after them for numerous reasons.

I agree, there needs to be some sort of confrontation while they're stopped.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on August 25, 2014, 11:04:41 pm
Orion does indeed have Georgia's ship. Part of me wants to have Orion give it to Adam to pilot, honestly. A kind of slap in the face to Georgia as well to help goad her out of her hidey hole.

Edit// Posted. Sorry again for the delay. It was getting on the long side, so I cut a bit of what I intended to write between Orion and Adam. I might finish their conversation in a later post, I might just fill it in when Adam moves to find Andy. Dunno yet.

Oh, and let me know if anything I wrote was off the mark. I don't mind editing any of it.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on August 28, 2014, 01:26:32 am
HOLY CRAP Pride. We'd talked about how Adam was going to be and all that, but... That. Was. Sweet!

Loved it, I totally could have read more ^_^

The only thing I noticed was that when you mentioned Adam's mark at the end, you said Hand, and it's wings. The marks  and where they are, are pretty unique to each person, from what I pictured. I suppose they could run in families if Beau wanted to have a missing relative- since the girl you talked about has a hand print like Mac.

Anyway... that was well done. Kudos and a rainbow sheep =] :rainbowsheep:

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on August 28, 2014, 02:06:06 am
Oh, I knew that, duh. Sorry, I'll change it up. As for the handprint thing, I thought that was the generic mark until they're older? I'm probably misremembering that as we'll, sorry. Beau, if you want me to change that, I can as well. Just let me know.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Beau on August 28, 2014, 06:53:58 am
I don't think the marks have to be completely unique.  Maybe there is something to the patterns but research hasn't figured them out?  Dunno.

I think Raleigh and Mac need to have a convo.  If I get some time tomorrow Lightening I'll PM you.  Traveling at the moment.

Awesome posting and plotting. Gee, I wonder why his name was changed to Seraph? XP So cruel, Pride. Georgia's beloved ship, and Andy's beloved...beloved.

Trying to figure out how Georgia's gonna come to the conclusion to tell Andy about her whole issue. Perhaps someone could find her medication and have questions? Do some research? Could possibly create internal conflict for Georgia because she doesn't know that her medication has a different purpose than it was "prescribed" for.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on August 28, 2014, 04:00:31 pm
Haha, I'm glad you guys like it.

As for Georgia's situation, depending on how medical savvy Fin is, he might be the one to notice something was off with her medication? He'd probably feel obligated to tell Andy about it too, or at least tell Raleigh so he can deal with Andy's temper.

I found a really close image of how I picture Andy's wings Tattoo on her shoulders. Adams would probably be more grand. Hers would be UV ink, which looks more like a really faded scar or really nothing at all without a UV light, maybe like a white ink tattoo.

These (http://www.tattoobite.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/blacklight-tattoo-designs-for-back.jpg) are some of my favorite UV tattoo examples to show the way the orange/yellow/red ink would show up. And this (http://www.tattodesigns8.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/03/blacklight-tattoo-facegarretts-uv-tattoo-by-doctah-jones-on-deviantart-lqw4r2v1.jpg) is a good example of how a UV tattoo is hidden after it heals.

I'm so sorry to hear about your loss, Lightning and Iorveth. Hope your weeks get better!

Just wanted to let y'all know I'm moving this weekend so I may be a little slow with responses and things. First joint post between Beau and me is up!

Post by: Peregrine on October 12, 2014, 08:51:18 pm
I posted up what Lightning and I had already, since it was getting a bit long.

It will probably take another such post to finish up their fight.

Any objections to jumping to the Moon/meet after that? Then Pride and Iorveth can be around/almost catch them/create havoc what have you.

Post by: Pach_Work on October 13, 2014, 05:59:20 am
Beau and I have a second part of our joint post, but after that's posted we can feel free to move along.

Also, I'm amused that Georgia has become this scantily clad stowaway. I hadn't intended her to be so immodest except for the first day of work but it actually makes her character more interesting and funny. Andy's comment about Georgia flashing her ass made me chuckle. XD
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on October 13, 2014, 06:18:26 am
Really, it's Andy's perception of her more than anything, I'd say. All it would take is the one time for Andy to brand her, especially since she's feeling insecure in the relationship with Mac, since she hasn't actually had more than a once night stand since Adam.

It's more about her insecurities than anything I'd say.

You are more than welcome to have Georgia be scantily clad, but you don't have to if you don't wanna. =]

I enjoyed the flashback you wrote with Adam's capture, Pere. Well done.

Sorry for my absence, things have been complicated. Pach, I have some questions about Georgia's ship that Adam will be commandeering, if you don't mind. I'll shoot you a pm with the details.

Time to time jump.

Pride - I really liked your vinyette (sp) about Orion in your creative thread.  I could see you reposting it in Sky as a way to show time passing if you wished.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on October 27, 2014, 01:27:57 am
Agreed.

Lightning and I can always fill in what happened in the fight later/in flash backs if needed. (Speaking of, anyone heard from her? I hope she's okay =/)

Pride, I'd love to have that solo piece in the thread, but if you don't want to use it for this time jump, I can get a post up to get us to the moon for the meet.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on October 28, 2014, 03:51:26 am
Thank you, you two. You are too kind. And sure, I can post my bit with Orion for this time skip until stuff kicks off on the moon. It doesn't have a particular time it took place in, so now works for me if you guys are cool with it.

L was pretty locked down with classes and the likes last time I spoke with her. I'm sure she's  well, just preoccupied.

for the sake of moving along, it's prolly best to go with the time jump. i'm kind of horribly procrastinating on a paper haha.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on November 07, 2014, 01:12:45 am
Rochester's men aren't there to cause trouble. They saw they were there early so they are there to help unload.

I figured the drama would come from Orion and Dom.

Speaking of- Pride, are we introducing Adam into things while they are there or no?

Anyone is welcome to move them along- Georgia might go looking for meds or a doctor or something so she can confirm that the pills aren't what she was told. Or maybe she runs into someone that she owes money?

Maybe Mac goes off for parts or Anne causes drama for him for some reason?

Raleigh? I dunno maybe he comes to tell Andy something?

I don't want to loose you guys or this thread. =/

No worries. I had one kid in the er because she wouldn't stop vomiting for over 24 hours, keeping nothing down, and the other coughing up her lungs a few days later, me into the dock for severe dizziness and vertigo- though the stuff they gave me to try and clear it up has given me a whole new set of problems, belck.

Unfortunately, Tis the season. *sigh*

Hey y'all! Sorry for my delay. With the holidays and the dreaded flu going around I've been a little set back. Feeling better now but I had a few concerns.

Has the Anne docked? Sorry if this was obvious in the post, Pere, I have just been drugged with nyquil most of the time XD I didn't want to get Georgia off the ship until it was actually possible. I also have a lot of thinking and connecting to do with her past. I forgot a lot of what I planned (most of it was on a whim).

 
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 04, 2014, 11:19:23 pm
Ahh, the never ending flu, yes it keeps making itself around my family, so far we've had stomach flu, croup, sinus infection and my oldest now has gone back to picking up the stomach bug we thought had only gotten to her sister- Hope you're feeling better Pach!

But yes, they are docked, Rochester's men have shown up anywhere from 30mins to an hour early to collect the trees, which is making Andy jumpy that they are going to try and rip them off.

I was thinking of posting to move it forward to show they aren't there to cause trouble, just to get things over with since Queen Anne's Revenge also showed up sooner than expected.

To make things a little more clear -The place they are at is a moon with a space port type deal on it- think domes and underground spaces- shopping area, living space, cafeterias, etc, not much above the surface. It has a space port because the main operation on the planet is mining for rare minerals/metals. (If anyone has played Mass Effect there's a few places in the game like I'm picturing, or if anyone has seen Mars Needs Moms- sort of like that surface wise)

There is no breathable air outside the port- so if you go out and about, you have to have a space suite on or be traveling in a lunar type vehicle.

I bring all this up because it is going to be part of my post but I wasn't sure how clear it was going to be.

Joint post b/t Lightning and me is up. Lots of drama for you llamas to read :mask: Standby for possible edits however, because I wrote my parts while drugged on Nyquil at a very late hour...teehee.

And I'll get Georgia off the ship and out of the way in my next post. She's gonna look for a doctor or someone to ask about how to get the flashbacks and PTSD toned down.

And when she gets back she has a surprise for Andy. Yay?

Post by: Lightning on December 08, 2014, 10:11:47 am
okay, this is hugely embarrassing but i made a really, really dumb mistake and happened to have placed Raleigh on the wrong side. i've pm'd pach about it to get this fixed but she hasn't responded so i just wanted to let you all know in advance. i'm sorry for the confusion.

i blame the hour and finals. sorry!
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 08, 2014, 04:28:19 pm
No worries, I'm just glad folks are still around =] I hope everyone is doing alright with tests and papers and such. Has been many years now since I had to worry about school deadlines, but reading about it, I can still feel that primal anxiety in the pit of my stomach over taking a big test or turning in a paper you've agonized over.

If it helps, I read it that Georgia misunderstood and assumed he was part of the Alliance, rather than the resistance. I had to go read it again to even understand what you meant by putting him on the wrong side.

As for continued plot, if Raleigh or Mac or both do tag along, I'm good with that, but I figure there will be ensuing drama at the lunch meet. Maybe they won't let Raleigh come all the way or something, because his arm is considered a weapon. ^_^

Beau, do you mind if Rochester has an idea of who Mac really is, as long as nothing is revealed beyond a "So you're calling yourself Mac these days... interesting?" type deal? If not, totally cool... Rochester knows plenty enough about Andy to make things interesting.

Pride- you still with us? *crosses her fingers* If so, are we going to be spotting Orion or Adam at this stop? Perhaps both, or a near miss?

I'll poke Iz too, to see what's up, he's been super swamped at work the last few times I've chatted with him.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on December 08, 2014, 06:40:25 pm
I'm still with you, Cap'n. I'm writing Seraph's post now, but you'll be seeing both Adam and Orion. I was thinking Adam will actually disrupt the meeting. In the confusion that follows, with Andy/possibly Mac/possibly Ral moving to confront Adam, is when Orion will make his move to board the Anne and capture Georgia. How the conflict goes from there is up to you guys. I imagine he wouldn't succeed this time around, but it would tip the crew off to Orion's real target.

Also, what are everyone's thoughts on a conflict between Nine and Anne? I was thinking about having Orion open a link for the AI while he's on the ship so she could gather information, but then would have to deal with the resistant Anne stopping her. Nine might succeed in getting some important information (camera feeds of Mac working on Anne for instance, signs that he is actually Marked) and that could be a catalyst to push the crew to removing Anne's restrictions completely, so she can better fend off attacks of that nature? Dunno, just throwing it out there.

As for details of Seraph's arrival, I'm not going to have him arrive until the meeting has already started probably. I was thinking he would send a transmission to Andy directly somehow (facilitated by Nine?) that would throw a whole wrench into the dealings. Maybe Rochester thinks its a setup or something, dunno, but mainly a catalyst to make Andy and whomever is with her chase after Adam in order to leave the Anne vulnerable to Orion's entry.

Thoughts?

Edit// Pach, I did my best to keep the Seraphim true to what we talked about in PMs. If you want me to adjust anything, please don't hesitate to let me know.

Post by: Lightning on December 09, 2014, 02:28:48 am
it's all good, pach~ i'm just glad everything's fixed now. i felt so silly haha.

pride, i'm down will all the conflicts we can cram in, but you know me. i love the drama of it. i also still want Orion to rip off Raleigh's arm. gah, the image is so cool.

and peregrine, also down with the drama with not letting Raleigh in. he'll throw a fit. haha. maybe they take him into custody or something because it gets a little out of hand? idk, but he definitely won't stay quietly. there can definitely be some drama that gets him to not be able to go.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 09, 2014, 04:14:49 am
I figure there might be one or two crew members tasked with staying behind, so either Orion can kill them (sad- but I can see it making for some more guilt to add to the pile Andy carries around) or they decide to skip duty and go run around the moon leaving Anne to fend for herself, which prompts them to try and cut the meeting short, only to have Adam causing a ruckus to keep them away longer? I dunno.

I don't mind Nine assaulting Anne, maybe getting a bit of info about what she really is or something- we can improvise. I don't want Nine to get too much at this point, but enough to keep them continually entangled. And for Anne to be able to get a taste for their pursuers, maybe gain knowledge about where Adam has been or something?

It would take quiet the effort to disrupt the meeting that I had in mind, not that I don't think you could do it but the plan in my head is that it's going to be at Rochester's compound, away from the main port/mining  area of the moon, and several stories underground. Maybe an explosion set off some where near the surface/entrance to said compound? I don't know what sneaky abilities the Seraphim has that you and Pach has talked over, but if it has advanced weapons or stealth or something that would play into it too.

I want Andy to see Adam at some point, perhaps chase after him, and maybe have others tell her she's crazy and seeing things. Maybe between Rochester's men and all the chaos they'll only get to see each other, or maybe she'll actually almost get to him before someone makes her evacuate or something. We'll have to see how things play out.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on December 09, 2014, 04:29:06 am
Oh, I wasn't thinking of anything quite so drastic as explosions to disrupt the meeting. I was thinking more along the lines of someone's personal communication device going off, and when it's answered, Adam is the one on the other side. Andy recognizes his voice maybe? Dunno, but I was definitely thinking something much more low key than blowing up the surface of the compound, haha. If not, it can always happen after the meeting, when she's returning to the surface and whatever communication inhibitors Rochester's base has is no longer between them.

Sure, limiting what Nine can take makes sense to me. She won't be expecting Anne to be 'awake' anyways, so that will be quite the surprise. Anne taking a bit from Nine while Nine takes a bit from Anne makes sense to me. And I agree, Andy should definitely see Adam at some point. That's what Orion is betting on at least - seeing Adam will keep her from the Anne long enough for him to take Georgia.

As for Orion on the ship, if Andy has a neural link to it, I imagine she'd know pretty much instantly when Orion is boarding, right? Again, I guess it depends on what kind of communication inhibitors Roschester has in place, but I'd think the stuff Mac made would be pretty strong. It might simply be a matter of getting back to the ship before Orion can accomplish his goal.

In that vein, Andy could order her crew to evacuate and if Ral is still on board Lightning, that can be their first confrontation with the arm beat down we're both so excited for, haha. IIRC, Georgia was planning on stepping off the ship for a bit during the meeting anyways, so once Orion realizes she isn't there, sees Nine is stuck in a deadlock with Anne, and realizes Andy is on her way back to the ship possibly with Rochester's men as support, he'll pull out.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 09, 2014, 04:43:55 am
OOh, I hadn't thought about him using the coms against them. I like that more subtle approach.

I figure underground, and behind Rochester's defenses, Anne can still track them, but maybe she can't communicate fully with Andy, only Mac. It could be that Mac heads back to the ship, while Andy finishes the meeting and Adam is laying in wait for when she surfaces.

I figure they're going to drop her at a bustling part of the station instead of back at her ship-  maybe she is trying to get back to Anne when she encounters Adam. I'm not sure if they should scuffle yet- thoughts?

Also- Ahh! If Raleigh stayed on Anne, and Orion tore him up, that would totally throw Andy on the guilt train. Maybe Rochester's men stop him before he can even leave Anne with Andy- "If we're not going to let your guns go beyond the transport ship, what makes you think we're going to let metal man tag along?" or something along those lines.

I suppose it depends a bit on Beau too- if he wants Mac to tag along no matter what, or if he goes parts hunting, or follows them some how? Dunno.

so. many. options. *is excited for anything!*
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]

Post by: Beau on December 09, 2014, 07:55:49 pm
How about Mac goes with Andy and Ral is left behind because he misses the window to leave (busy with Georgia).   We did want Mac recognized - he has a history with pirates - and we were considering have the pirates offer a trade or some sort of backmail for his skill set, but I'm not sure we need to go there.  Mac not being on the ship to boost Anne to fight back would work.

I'll post today/tomorrow and say he'll go if Ral isn't here in 5 minutes...which it seems we could arrange.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 09, 2014, 10:33:15 pm
Sounds like a plan. That way Ral's is left on the ship, not by choice but circumstance, Mac tags along making Anne vulnerable, Andy can be her usual disgruntled self over feeling like she's got everyone in danger, Georgia can have slipped away and Orion and Seraph/Adam can go about sneaky and purposeful.

I like it. I like it a lot.

Post by: Pride on December 22, 2014, 05:21:58 pm
Sorry for the double post. I wanted to confirm the exact location of the Anne before I finish my post.

Is the Anne in an actual hangar at the moon port? Or is connected via a tunnel with the ship's airlock and the body of the ship is outside of the actual port? I assume the former since the Anne's crew and Rochester's men were loading trees into cargo ships at a mutual dock, but I wanted to make sure before I accidentally had Orion storming the ship through the cargo bay without a suit if he needed one.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 22, 2014, 06:52:16 pm
They are at an actual port on the moon. I think of it at a ship yard, except instead of wood board walks that the ships tie up to it's hallways/tubes that connect the ship to the port and it's life support system, but they can keep their door locked.

If he wanted to attack from a cargo door open to the moons surface, he'd need a suite or a ship to attach to Anne, but if he came in through the main hall thing.

I'm not sure I'm making sense, I didn't get a lot of sleep last night since we had family come into town for the night.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on December 22, 2014, 06:56:44 pm
Nah, makes perfect sense, no worries. I'll alter my post so he's attacking from the main hall, using Nine to open the locked door.

Post will be up shortly.

Edit// Posted. Let me know if I need to adjust anything. Pere, we can co-op the post where Adam contacts/confronts Andy if you would like. L, let me know if you're still interesting in joint posting the fight between Orion and Ral.

Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on December 22, 2014, 07:26:01 pm
Looks good. The only discrepancy I see is time frame on stuff Beau and I did. It took about 15 mins to get to Rochester's, and by the time they are done there, it should be about an hour since they left Anne, though I did leave room for Anne to be trying to get in touch with Andy, but not registering much through their neural link, so it could be they meet unexpected resistance from Anne, like we talked about and then the mutual pilfering of information takes place before Mac can get back and shut it down.

Let the drama and conflict begin! ^_^
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Pride on December 22, 2014, 07:34:01 pm
Yeah, then 'ten minute' plan would dissolve the moment Nine encounters Anne. Orion will likewise be waylaid longer than he expected when he confronts Ral then realizes that Georgia isn't on the ship or Anne is 'hiding' Georgia from Nine, forcing Orion to go searching door to door. If you want me to adjust the numbers though, just let me know. I didn't think out the specifics too far and certainly don't mind editing.

Awesome, L. I'll shoot you a PM in a bit.

Posted up another part to a joint post with Beau

Lighting and Pride are you still working on a rip Raleigh's arm off post? ((crosses fingers because I wanna read it ^_^))

Also, was perusing Deviant Art and came across these lovelies-

Click 1 (http://salvadortrakal.deviantart.com/art/Cyberpunk-Character-Concept-210301371) - Not how I picture Raleigh exactly, but the metal arm caught my attention

Click 2 (http://dctb.deviantart.com/art/AMP-I-369496501) A bit how I picture Anne if she ever got a body/ the mental picture I have of her when I think of "her" inside the ship watching everything and wanting to be free, or something like that. =]

Click 3 (http://alana-tendress.deviantart.com/art/Black-Market-Deck-332219339) Georgia or Andy in Anne's mainframe/brain controlling files or flying her or something. Just a cool way to picture the interface stuff maybe?

*shrug* Anyway. Thanks all for sticking with it!

L's still patiently waiting on me to start off that post, unfortunately. I'm at a bit of a block writing Orion/Adam right now, but I'll keep trying.

I like the picture you chose for Anne. For reference sake, I found one of Nine (http://imgur.com/rg7BK33) that is pretty similar to how I see her as a human in my head.

I've got a few ideas for Adam/Andy if it would help.

I'd stink at Orion, but I do hope to get to read the arm ripping off stuff because I'm been dreaming up Andy's reaction to finding Raleigh all... disassembled, since reading you two were thinking of it.

Everyone is a bit busy, so don't stress if it takes awhile before you can work it all out, but please please please write it?

Okay, I know I have been WOEFULLY NEGLECTFUL of all of my threads, but I am desperately hoping there is still some interest in this thread.

I put something up in the thread to hopefully spark a moving forward point- I'm horridly attached to these characters and this story- but if no one responds or has the desire to move forward, I understand.

If you are or aren't interested, could you at least toss that up here in the OOC so I know and can force myself to let go and move on?

Thanks you, you guys rock, no matter the out come. ^_^

My character has lots of drama to deal with so I have enough to work with to continue.

I wanted to read that fight scene between Light and Pride.

Ahh! You two give me such hope!!

And seriously, I too want to see the arm dismemberment... not gonna lie.

Also, if it's any incentive- I'm thinking that Orion is gonna kill Finn...

I was just thinking about Orion earlier today. Good timing.

Let me refresh myself with what I was doing and I'll talk with L about the fight stuff.

Oh nooo! Who will I write to make googly eyes at my character? lmao

I'm excited to bring this back to life, though I have kind of lost track of my plans for Georgia. I think last think I had in mind for her was telling Andy the truth.

Also, pretty excited for the bionic arm-rip. High expectations for that.

Well, we don't have to kill Finn, but either he tries to fight and Orion kills him.... because evil killer man(who's AI is slowly turning him into a softy?) or he's a big ol coward and lets Raleigh get the tar beaten out of him before anyone can show up to help.

I suppose he could get knocked out and not dead if everyone is against it. I just sort of saw it going that way. *shrug* I'm open to whatever.

and Pride! You are seriously awesome at the fight stuff, and Light gets to take part of the pressure, right? You guys are awesome and however it turns out we're all gonna love it!

Haha, I'm mostly kidding, no worries.
mostly

When you mentioned killing Finn, I initially imagined that it would work out like Orion storms the ship -> Finn tries to stop him -> Orion disarms him immediately then demands at knife point where Georgia is -> Finn is obviously terrified but he refuses to say anything about Georgia, even when Orion stabs him in the shoulder -> Orion realizes Finn isn't going to talk, so he slits his throat right as Raleigh shows up -> Cue Orion v. Raleigh fight. Thoughts?

lmao. i was kidding about Finn. i will miss my bb but sacrifices must be made~

and pride, that sounds perf to me. raleigh's gonna be pissedddddd.

Post by: Peregrine on April 25, 2015, 08:06:24 am
I like the idea of Finn trying to fight or Orion killing him because he won't tell him where Georgia is and Raleigh comes in. Sounds perfect to me ^_^

Just a quick update to let you guys know that we're trying to get this post written, but my PMs are being dumb and making things both difficult and annoying. Haven't forgotten, just trying to deal with technical issues.
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]
Post by: Peregrine on May 01, 2015, 12:29:06 am
Thanks for the update! Sorry things are frustrating though =/

Does anyone know, is there any way to make an "invisible" thread they could maybe use until the PM issue gets worked out for Pride?

Which btw, now I'm worried PM's I've sent recently have disappeared but I have no idea that they have since I often forget to click the "send a copy to my inbox" tab thing.

Just checking in on everyone and also giving a heads up.

I'll be around this weekend and the beginning of next week, but then I'll be leaving for a wedding until late the following weekend.

Light and Pride, if you need to use Anne to help control systems/make the fight more dramatic/give something for Nine to do- She's totally about self preservation in the long run now and keeping Mac around and/or a Marked so she can fulfill her full potential- and I trust you guys with her so feel free to use her.

Beau, Pach, anything you guys need from me?

I sort of wanted the others to post first -- I'm biding my time.

I was picturing their post first too Beau, just making sure there wasn't anything you needed from me before I go off to the wedding.

Sorry, I forgot to mention here on Para that I would be out of town until Tuesday. My girlfriend graduated college yesterday and I drove to Georgia to be there for it and help pack up her stuff to move her out to Texas to live with me. I'm at her parents place right now in the middle of the boonies, but I'll be driving back tomorrow and be back at work Tuesday. I'll have a lot to catch up with irl and posts here, but hopefully I'll be able to PM people normally upon my return.

I was at a graduation this weekend too! I'm good. I can post something if needed but I figured the showdown would happen before I did that!

Alright folks- back from the wedding and all the craziness and it's almost summer for my kiddos so I'm hyped and ready to write.

Looks like were all anticipating the Light/Pride post and then we can get this thing bouncing around the cosmos again.

Super excited! Again, guys, let me know if there is anything you need from me/if there is anything I can do to help.  ^_^

 Summmer :rainbowsheep: Summer :rainbowsheep: SUMMER :rainbowsheep:!

Post by: Pach_Work on May 18, 2015, 04:38:01 pm
I remember he mentioned he had a few posts to catch up on? I'm assuming he's working on it. I was going to wait for the big scene. I wanted to have Georgia return and see the chaos she missed, realize it's all her fault and beg the group for forgiveness~

Yay fun!

Post by: Peregrine on May 18, 2015, 07:07:50 pm
I've seen him online a few times more than a week ago and his profile said he'd been on a few days ago =/

Light, have you guys been able to get anything going?
Title: Re: Chained to the sky [OOC]

we plotted some stuff up, but stuff still needs doin'.

Post by: Pride on May 21, 2015, 06:35:36 pm
Life is extremely busy for me right now. I'm not sure when I'll have the time to really write again, so I'm just going to have to drop.

L, please feel free to control Orion and Nine however you see fit for the fight. Beyond that, I give full permission for everyone else here to use Orion, Nine, and Adam how they wish to progress the plot.

Sorry for the trouble.

I hate to say it, but maybe we should put this one back on hold.

Post by: Peregrine on May 22, 2015, 01:21:17 am
I can't really imagine going on without Pride, but I also know I cannot be objective about stopping either because I have stories stuck in my head.

I'll of course support whatever everyone decides because you were all awesome for even considering taking this up again after so long.
