πŸ‘½ Intro πŸ‘½
Deep in rural lands, far from the prying eyes of civilisation, something amazing has happened. An alien space craft has crash landed! Do you dare investigate this strange phenomenon? Or perhaps... the alien might come to you...

READ FIRST:

Players aged 16+ are preferred. If you're a year or so younger than that and feel you're more mature than average, we can discuss things, but there will be extra limits set on RP to keep everyone comfortable regarding the age gap.

This is a multi-paragraph RP. If you feel you can't maintain a pace of about 2 paragraphs average per post, this might not be for you. Also, expect long posts from me early on - don't feel obligated to keep up with them and don't expect them to persist throughout; it'd be mostly due to me setting the scene.

Reminders. I'm starting a new reminder policy with this scenario. Normally, I'm too shy to remind people if they go inactive, but I figure that if I leave a forewarning, and potential partners are aware of it, I wouldn't feel so bad doing it. If we agree to RP and start discussing the scenario in detail and I don't hear back from you for a week, I will drop a reminder. If I send you a starter post (or reply to your starter) and you don't reply back for 3 days, I will drop a reminder. In each case, I will only remind once, as I don't want to be a bother.

Gentle-Heart chirped loudly at their transport craft, knowing full well it wouldn't understand them. But in a bid to satisfy their frustration even slightly, they tried to pretend it did. To think: a simple stealth approach to a primitive world was what finally busted the over-worked and under-maintained engine. Now, the ship was in free-fall. And it was unlikely Gentle-Heart could get it fixed in short order. Just about getting the nose level with the ground, Gentle-Heart had no time for relief as their vessel ploughed straight into the earth. They felt the impact send shockwaves through their body. Then everything went dark...

New character, who dis? :D

I want to take this little fluffy-kins for a test run. They're a cuddly alien perfect for cute interactions and sci-fi antics. This is a 1x1 scenario.

Whilst this idea is fairly open-ended, I have a few ideas where it could start. Feel free to put forth one of your own if you think it suits your character better (click the underlined text below to reveal collapsed content):

Starter Plots


1 - You're a scientist working at a remote observatory, watching the stars. Suddenly, the unexpected happens: a strange UFO blinks into existence nearby! At first, it seems like teleportation, then you realise that its trajectory indicates it had entered the atmosphere through traditional means. This was a sign of advanced stealth technology... which meant that you only detected it because it has passed so close. The outcome was clear: Nobody else had seen this ship yet. This was your opportunity to be the first person on your world to interact with a real alien!

2 - Out for a stroll in the woods, you hear an almighty crash. Running to investigate, you come across what appears to be a crashed alien space craft. You decide to investigate...

3 - You are an astronaut on a cutting-edge mission into space. Everything seems to be going normally until your mission control alerts you of a strange object in your vicinity. Suddenly, an alien space craft comes barrelling at you out of control. Before you can avoid it in time, it clips your wing, sending your ship back on a slow decent to your homeworld. You just about manage to get control, crash landing in the middle of nowhere. A plume of smoke visible on the way down seems to indicate that the alien ship had suffered the same fate...

4 - (Based on Digital Anvil's Freelancer) The Nomad threat is over. The Order's secretive missions in the Omicron sector are now years in the past, and the four houses have begun rebuilding their assets after the war. A new jump hole to a system within a sector far beyond the Tau region has brought a team of pioneers to an abandoned alien world. Upon discovering a crash site on said planet, one or more of the explorers investigates. A new threat is on the horizon - one that has already driven a species to near extinction...

5 - You are dying. But you live too far from civilisation and can't afford the cost to be cured. When a conveniently crashed alien finds your remote home, an opportunity for a prolonged life is given. But there's a cost... you must live out the rest of your days in a new body. (Possible bodies: humanoid robot, human-replica android, Void-Dancer clone, the crashed ship itself).



Main Plots


(A ) - Gentle-Heart is just the beginning. Soon, more alien threats will be spotted on the planet. Together, can you save the world from extra-terrestrial invasion? (Possible X-Com themes if you specifically ask for X-Com aliens)

(B ) - The government will discover Gentle-Heart! You must go on the run to protect your new alien friend!

(C ) - Gentle-Heart's ship is too badly damaged for repairs without further materials and equipment. They need your help to gather supplies and repair the ship. But when the repairs are complete... will they leave, or will they choose to stay?

(D ) - The ship is a lost cause. Gentle-Heart is stuck on the planet for the foreseeable future. It is up to you to teach them the ways of your civilisation.

This has my interest! I think #3 sounds fun, are you committed to the 'homeworld' being earth/humans? Or are there room for more aliens?

I purposely left that open-ended, really. It could be any planet, so long as meeting an alien species is just as surprising as it would be on earth.

Do you have a particular character you want to use for this?

Here let me PM you my thoughts

Added some more options.

Spruced up the presentation of the ad.

(Still open)

I'd be open to doing this as a non-ghostly version of Roque, if you're still open! The forest starter seems to be a best fit.

Hmm... since your profile says you're 15, I might consider this... there are just a few limits I'm going to place on things:

1 - If you consider yourself a fairly mature RPer and can keep up a multi-para pace, we can give it a shot. If not, then you might be better off considering giving this one a miss. If I went back in time and found my 15-year-old self, I would refuse to RP with them. However, I have seen some fairly capable 15-year-old RPers out there, hence why I'm not outright saying no.

2 - Because of the age gap, I must insist that this takes place on the public forum.

3 - Though Gentle-Heart is of an asexual species, and thus any 'romance' they get into isn't driven by human desire, but rather a platonic intimacy... and though I did put that theme in the maybe category for this character... I'm going to categorically say no romance. I just wouldn't feel comfortable.

1- I believe that I am capable of being up to that level when it comes to both maturity and response length. That said, if you still feel off about doing so, either now or during the RP, I won't take it personally if you feel we should quit due to the gap or if you think I'm not.

2- I'm actually a bit confused about why it should take place on a public forum. I mean,I'm fine with it, but if you wouldn't mind elaborating on your reasons for that?

3- Romance is actually not a thing I often enjoy doing, so I'm absolutely fine, more unaffected, by that. (In my opinion, said alien looks too cute to form more then a platonic relationship with it.)

With regard to (2), it's simply a comfort thing. Being an adult talking to an under-16 minor in private for entertainment purposes... just doesn't sit right with me.

There is something else that needs discussing before I can start this off. You picked a starter scenario, but there's also a selection of main plotlines in the opening post. If you have a preference for one, it'd be helpful to know. Or alternatively, if you have any ideas of your own if you don't want to use any of those.

Oh! That's completely understandable.

I'm sorry, forgot! Both B and C are the ones that I had a main choice for, so flipping a coin…

C?

I can combine B and C if you like.

I'll get a thread set up in the IC forums after I've had dinner (which will be soon).

Alright! Many thanks.

Here it is.



I'm still open for more instances of this scenario.

This certainly sounds interesting!

Well if you want to give this a go, I'm gunna need some information. What character you want to use, which of the options interest you most, etc etc.
