I have an idea floating around that I kind of like a lot. >.< Just... trying to figure out some finer points. And you know, write it all down.

But yeah. Next couple of days assuming stuff doesn't get crazy over here.

I'm actually kind of interested in this idea too!
What are some finer points to the plot?

Finer points? God...the hierarchy of the rebellion, which is going to be decimated...there are lots of established characters here that will need to undergo a major life upheaval. But, that's not to discourage new people from joining by any means.

Ossanlin has more details on the Andalite side of things...but basically we would need one group of Andalites and rebels to help rescue a group of rebel POWs under Andalite surveillance, following the destruction of the Yeerk rebellion over what amounts to a prejudice-based miscommunication. -.-

Well Aux, if you could would you be more specific?  What do you specifically want to know?  The premise should cover the start-of-story outline, and the rules are fairly self-explanatory.  What are your questions/concerns specifically?  You can ask them here or send me a PM, either way is fine.  :)

Haha "Aux", I like it! Makes me think of the Auxiliary Animorphs or the Aux from David Gunn's "Death's Head".

Any way, sorry for not being more specific, you did outline things very well in the premise, but I'm just having a little bit of trouble translating it in my own head (having one of those thick moments :-b)

So basically the outline is: Yeerk Empire Vs. Yeerks who believe that there is another way to live (symbiosis, nothlits, what have you) and the Andalite Military and Goverment doesn't care about either because, well, Yeerks.

So what you're saying the outline of the RPG would be is that the Andalites kill and capture any Yeerks just because of their species, regardless of stance or ideals, and we would be playing from the perspective of either;

- Yeerks in The Empire.

- Yeerks in the Rebellion.

- A rebel Andalite group that believes not all Yeerks are the same and wants to help the Rebellion.

- The main Andalite body that hates all Yeerks equally.

- Any other Animorphs species that has chosen one of those four sides.

Did I get all of that right?

More or less, yes. Gameplay will be focusing on the Yeerk Rebellion and the Andalites that are helping them, although it may deviate and include people from the other categories at times.

Actually, for the time being, the RP will only be accepting characters that are part of the Rogue Element group. The Rogue Element group includes former Yeerk Rebels and Andalite "traitors" only.

The rebellion is a small group of freedom-fighters who fight against the Empire for a different way of life, one that doesn't involve the subjugation and devaluation of other species.  The group was originally created by Myitt.  The position of the Andalites isn't one of "we don't care about their ideals..." it's "We don't believe they're telling the truth about their ideals."  The prevailing Andalite opinion is that the Rebellion are an elite group of shock troops and master spies, devoutly loyal to the Empire and meant to provide a second front and a dangerous distraction.  The false plot only gave them a dire excuse to wipe the Rebellion out and be done with it.

I did say that it might be possible to play an Electorate-loyalist or Imperial way down the line, depending upon how the RP develops, but for now it would only be surviving rebels and "treasonous" Andalites in the RP.

Okay, that clears a lot up for me, thanks!

You'll have to bear with me. Between midnight launches of Resident Evil 6, XCOM, MoH and now Assassin's Creed 3 tonight, work has left me pretty brain dead xD

Woo!

Luke, we PM'd the tentative profile for our OC; no rush about it, but it did arrive, yes?

The only appropriate state of the mind is surprise. The only appropriate state of the heart is joy. The sky you see now, you have never seen before. The perfect moment is now. Be glad of it.

Oy, that's new. O_O;

Thanks for responding so quickly, and sorry about that.
