Glad to hear it Marie.  ^^  Listen guys, I'm aiming for a tentative start-date of November 10th.  That may prove to be a tad too aggressive, but I really want to get started soon.  Everyone who's interested PLEASE SEND A PM TO ONE OF THE MODS.  Everyone who's going to join but hasn't yet composed/submitted a character-sheet, please do so.  You can't just submit your sheet the day before the RP is supposed to begin, we mods need time to approve your characters and intro posts, so if you are interested, please submit them ASAP

If you are planning on playing a rebel, you really need to submit your character sheet early as Myitt has some very heavy demands on her time IRL right now, and she must be the one to approve any rebel characters.

If you want to be one of the members of the Andalite forward rescue group, please let me know you are interested!  There are only six or, at the very maximum, seven slots available for the first portion of this RP and three of them are already taken!  There will be room for more Andalites later, but if you want to take part in the first chapter of this RP, you need to get your character sheets to me ASAP.

I'll also be creating and posting to the character look thread so that we can begin familiarizing ourselves with each others' characters...but again, I need character sheets in order to do that, so please write them up!

Okay, for everyone's perusal, here is the layout of the Apix Mirage and the Corvus Facility.  I suck at drawing, so I'm sorry, but it should give everyone a visual idea of how things look.

OMG! o.o That's awesome, dude :D Yay, blueprints make things so much easier! I know I have a copy of the rebel base (the old one..) drawn out somewhere on one of Jessi's former students' old notebooks.

Yes.

Anyway, please send along character sheets for potential rebels to me! Send, send, it's the weekend and I have no excuse not to look them over!

If you can donate the time and feel that the rules at the beginning of this thread are tolerable, Ember, please do join!  If you ARE interested in taking part in the first chapter, please create and submit a character sheet ASAP as I hope to begin this coming weekend.  Again, rules, character-sheet format, and useful facts are at the beginning of this OOC thread.  And again, please make out a character sheet and submit it via PM as soon as you can.

Also, a quick shout out to anyone interested in playing an Andalite character (including Chad and Este)...if anyone wants to add "computer-specialist" as a skill, Ossanlin is going to have need of one.  Of course if anyone else wishes to join as an Andalite and give their character that skill, that will work as well.  I can make the computer specialist an NPC, but it would be more fun if the specialist was a PC.  That's all.  Don't feel obligated to add it, I only mean it as a possible option.  An NPC will work as well.  And Este, feel free to give Norry this skill if you want, but I'm assuming she'll be with Ossanlin at all times, so that won't help with the Corvus run.  ;)

Would it matter if the person knows much about real world computers? I could volunteer Claxter. He did tell Efaen once that he'd rather his place in the war not be on the front lines. I think it would be in character for him to test his skills with computers.

No, as long as you can BS and make it sound believable, that's fine.  But the person in the RP would have to be as skilled with Andalite computers as a human hacker would have to be to hack into Cheyenne Mountain, or at least the Pentagon.  So I'm not talking just a person who knows computers, I'm talking about a person who KNOWS computers inside, outside, backward, and around.  I'm talking about a person who could, in the space of a week or two, write a virus that could successfully infest a top-secret heavy-duty computer system and target specific systems in a certain way, or give a remote access control of those systems while locking out any alternate access...advanced stuff.  So if you want, Chad, you can add that, it's up to you.

I'm also sending out PM's to Steph, Aux, and Ember to check if they actually want to join chapter one or not.  Either way, I'm still looking to start this coming weekend, so I hope those of you who've submitted the necessary prerequisites are ready to go!  :)

Norry is brilliant at the things she does well, but her areas of expertise are extremely focused on operating ships, shooting with precision at moving targets, and making arisths feel inferior and out of their depth. We just don't see hacker-savvy as falling anywhere within her in-character skillsets. If somebody else wants that position, they are heartily welcome to it. :)
The universe is, instant by instant, re-created anew. There is, in truth, no Past, only a memory of the Past. Blink your eyes, and the world you see next did not exist when you closed them. 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.

Understood, Este.  Even if Norry had those abilities, it probably wouldn't have worked (in this case) for the purposes of the RP, I just wanted everyone to know that they had the option.   :)

Luke, just FYI, I'm out of town this weekend and may not have any semblance of internet access. I'm leaving early Friday morning and returning midday Monday.

NP Marie, thanks for telling me.  The launch might get delayed a couple of days anyway, but even if it doesn't, we'll just be doing some intro posts and whatnot.  For the Andalites, it's looking over, listening to, and responding to the pre-mission briefing...for the Rebels, it's reactions of both Yeerks and hosts to being imprisoned in the manner described.

Right, I'll jump in if I can. Do we need more Andalites or rebels?
