Title: Darwin's Soldiers
Description: A Furry Science-Fiction RP

Serris - September 18, 2008 08:06 PM (GMT)
This is a science-fiction RP with a slight supernatural twist.

This is the premise:

There exists a large installation known as Pelvanida Complex out in the middle of the Nevada desert. This installation focuses on creating the next generation of soldiers as well as weapons research. The experiments run the gamut from cybernetics to biological enhancement and even psionics. But there has been a disaster, a radical anti-technology terrorist group has attacked the facility and cut it off from the outside world. The experiments and scientists are attempting to resist but they are being systematically killed by the terrorists. An elite group of soldiers have been sent in to deal with the threat, but they underestimate the resources of the terrorists.


Gameplay info:

You can play as the soldiers, experiments, scientists or terrorists.

Scientists - have access to all areas of the base and thus access to the advanced weaponry but they are physically weak and have no combat related skills.

Soldiers - have access to small weaponry (small arms, grenades and the like) from the onset and have access to many combat related skills but have limited access to areas in the base.

Psi-Experiments - have psionic powers but have almost no access to areas in the base and are not too good with technology. They also have no combat related skills.

Cyber-Experiments - masters of technology and have a cybernetic enhancement. But have almost no access to various areas. No combat related skills.

Terrorists - play similar to the soldiers except they have access to heavier weaponry from the onset and don't have access to as much combat related skills.

NOTE: Hybridization is not allowed. IE, you can't play as a combination of a Cyber and Psi Experiment.
NOTE: Scientists do not have access to heavier weapons from the onset. They have be armed with a pistol or an improvised weapon from the onset.
NOTE: Experiments have to be either unarmed or at most, armed with an improvised weapon from the onset.
NOTE: Experiments can side with the terrorists (resentment over being created, perhaps?)
NOTE: Soldiers and scientists are on the same side.
NOTE: All factions may use small arms (scientists and experiments included).
NOTE: Only soldiers and terrorists may use heavier weaponry (RPGs, missile launchers, etc.)
NOTE: Humans and Furries can be any faction.

Other notes:

This is a mixed human and anthro world.

You may have as many characters as you can control

An sample character profile:

Specializations: If playing as a scientist replace with knowledge
Powers/Cybernetic enhancement: If not playing as experiment, put N/A or omit this category. Only 1 cybernetic enhancement OR 2 psionic powers are allowed.

And please, join only if you are going to be dedicated to this RP.

Finally, PM me if you have questions and have fun!

Discussion is here.

Okay! Count me in!

Name: PX-0715-91
Alias: Neku
Age: 6 Since Creation (Physically and mentally 17)
Species: Anthro Reptile
Faction: Scientists
Specializations: Psi-Powers
Powers: Kinesis (Can move most anything with his mind. Limited to approx. 600 lbs)
ElectroKinesis (Can generate and control electricity from his body, as well as "charge" objects)
Innate ability: Regenerative Factor (Can regrow lost limbs, albeit slowly)
Empath (Can sense strong feelings from others)
Psi-Pin-Lock (Using pins with certain markings, can use unique powers, but requires considerable time to recharge, and is limited to six pin types

Personality: Neku is a kind, though somewhat sarcastic young reptilian psi-experiment. He can usually be found rocking out to his headphones that he got from a researcher, and when he's not wearing them, keeps them around his neck. When the terrorists attacked, he revealed a second, darker persona that is reserved solely for those who have hurt him, and as such is utterly devoid of mercy. He has a basic knowledge of martial arts, which he can use to defend himself as a last resort.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 1, 2008 01:46 PM (GMT)
I have an idea. What if the the leader of the base, Commander John Shelton, has left for a hearing with the UN? That means the base is vulnerable, with nobody in official command, which is why the terrorists are attacking now.

That seems like a good idea.

Serris - October 2, 2008 02:45 AM (GMT)
(OOC - I'm starting now)

James Zanasiu heard shouting and gunfire outside his lab. He ran to the office, opened a drawer and retrieved his pistol.

His assistant, an Anthro Clydesdale simply seized a large pipe from the utility closet and crouched behind a lab table.

He heard pounding on the door, after a few seconds a Human terrorist armed with a 9 mm Beretta kicked the door down and started shooting. James immediately shot the man in the chest and killed him. Another man, also armed with a Beretta entered and saw only the body oh his companion. As he turned to leave, the Clydesdale swung his pipe at the back of the man's head and killed him.

"Let's go!" James shouted.

The Clydesdale grabbed the man's pistol and went through the dead terrorists' equipment. He came away with 3 15 round magazines for the Beretta.

"Ready?" James asked. The gunfire had ceased

The Clydesdale nodded and he followed James into the hallway.

(OOC - A physically weak Clydesdale is still extremely strong by human standards)

Werner was in the office when he heard gun fire he grabbed his Walter PP9 and pointed it at the door he ran out side to come face to face with james. He lowered his gun "James what is going on here,' Werner asked.

Serris - October 2, 2008 02:50 AM (GMT)
"Werner, there has been a terrorist attack. We need to find as many experiments and scientists as possible and hold out until the military arrives. As long as you can shoot a gun you are fine." James replied.

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 02:55 AM (GMT)
"Yeah I can still shoot,' Werner replied. As soon as he did bullets began wissing by. "Running time,' he said out loud.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 2, 2008 02:57 AM (GMT)
In the control room, Dr. Shelton frowned as he saw hundreds of red dots converging on the radar. Checking the security cameras, he saw the first of the attackers converge on Dr. Zanasiu's office, where he and a young scientist were under fire.

Shelton hit the intercom hurriedly. "Security Team B, this is Rudy Shelton. Report to Zanasiu's office. This is not a drill."

Serris - October 2, 2008 02:58 AM (GMT)
"I agree!" James said.

Both he and the Anthro Clydesdale fired back at their attackers as they ran.

"In here!" James said, hurridly opening a steel door.

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:01 AM (GMT)
(Ignore this post for now)

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:03 AM (GMT)
"Where our support they should have been here by now,' Werner said to james.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 2, 2008 03:08 AM (GMT)
Shelton frowned.

"Security Team B?"

He clicked the button again. The radio wasn't crackling. He suddenly realized what that means.

Serris - October 2, 2008 03:09 AM (GMT)

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:15 AM (GMT)
The terrorists were still firing when the recived a message from one of their commanders "Fall back,' they commander said. "Are you nuts we're fighting to the end,' the terrorist replied. "Fall back now we can deal with that experiement later there are others we can get to,' the commander replied. "Fall back to the rally posistion,' the terrorist yelled to the others as they ran from the area under fire from the security teams.

"We've got them on the run,' Werner said as he shot a fleeing terrorist.

Serris - October 2, 2008 03:18 AM (GMT)
James got in one last shot to a fleeing terrorist.

"Well. The terrorists are gone but there is no security team." the Clydesdale said with a sigh.

"We'll have to make our own security team." James said.

James grabbed a M-16 and handed it to the Clydesdale, he grabbed a Remington 870 shotgun for himself and he took an AK-47 for Werner.

James and the Clydesdale went through all the bodies and came away with two extra 30 round magazines for each of the rifles and 10 shotgun shells.

"I guess if we are gonna hole up for a siege, then the Advanced Weapons Testing Lab is the place to go." James said.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 2, 2008 03:21 AM (GMT)
Shelton used his private radio-flashlight to contact Zanasiu and Donitz.

"Werner, I tried to get you security but the com's dead. I might be able to get it back up, but it'll take some time. Meanwhile, is there anyway I can help from the control room? I have access to all the base systems from here."

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:28 AM (GMT)
the terrorists arrived at their rally point. "Why did we just leave we almost had them,' the terrorist complained to the commander. The leader took his shot gun and fired blowing his head off. "any other questions,' he asked the other terrorists. "None good now go find the other experiements,' he ordered. "Hans I mean sir where do we find them,' another asked. "Just look at the signs on the wall,' hans replied. As the other terrorists ran down the hall hans was unaware that a experiement was behind a wall. "I hate this job the only reason why I joined this group is because they threatened to kill my family soon they will realise that they made a mistake when they did that,' hans thought to himself.

A programmer was watching the scene through a security camrea "So we are dealing with professionals,' the programmer said.

StarfallRaptor - October 2, 2008 03:29 AM (GMT)
A voice from behind Werner and the others spoke up, clearly agitated by what had transpired.
"Wha-What the heck is going on? Who are these guys, and more importantly, why are they shooting at us?"
PX-0715-91, known as Neku asked, looking down the hall, a small spiral of electricity around his hand serving as a visible indicator of his nervousness...

Serris - October 2, 2008 03:29 AM (GMT)
James grabbed the intercom and activated it.

"See if you can access the defensive turrets near the Advanced Weapons Testing Range. If you can you maybe able to keep terrorists from that area. We will be heading out there to arm ourselves. Also, see if you can call the US military." James said.

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:33 AM (GMT)
Hans looked behind the wall and saw the experiement that was watching him. He looked around to make sure no one was around. "I'm gonna let you go this time,' he said to the experiement. the experiement had a look of shock on his face as he turned and ran from hans as fast as he could.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 2, 2008 03:37 AM (GMT)
"Roger," said Shelton, saluting the radio.

He had an idea. He broadcast a distress call over the international radio, knowing full well the terrorists would jam it. He then carved 'SOS' on a long-range probe droid, which was the same color as the Nevadan desert, and sent it off towards the nearest military base, smiling at his own brilliance.

"Now, onto those AWTR weapon turrets," he muttered, sitting down in a nearby computer console.

To his horror, when he logged into the remote-access mainframe, the screen erupted into color. He recognized the Zwings virus. The terrorists had injected the entire base's programming with bugs!

Shelton hurriedly contacted Zanasiu. "James, the military's been contacted, but the computer mainframe of the entire base has been compromised. I can't help you artillery-wise until you or another team gets to the Central Processing Unit. I'll tell you what to do from there."

Serris - October 2, 2008 03:44 AM (GMT)
"Oh damn it!" James shouted.

"What?" asked the Clydesdale.

"Terrorists have hacked the Central Processing Unit. They may be able to lock us out of the AWTR or even turn the turrets against us."

"It's too dangerous to head to the Advanced Weapons Testing Range, those turrets will rip us apart." the Clydesdale said.

"Agreed. It's not like we can simply shoot them down either, it takes something like an RPG to destroy them." James said, "Our best bet is to go to the Central Processing Unit and see if we can reestablish control."

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:44 AM (GMT)
"Sir,' the programmer said to Shelton "You may want to look at this'. The programmer played the video feed from the hall where Hans was from the minute when the other terrorists arrived to the point when he freeded the experiement that was watching him.

StarfallRaptor - October 2, 2008 03:48 AM (GMT)
From behind Werner, Neku spoke up again.
"Pardon my intruding sir, but I might be able to disable those turrets, if you need me to. Name's Neku. PX-0715-91, by designation. Psychokinetic and Electrokinetic, at your service, sir!"
Neku said, snapping a sharp salute...

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 03:50 AM (GMT)
The experiement that hans released was a psy experiement known as joey to everyone ran up tho the group. "Joey what were you running from,' werner asked. Joey stood there trying to catch his breath "Some terrorist in hall 32B,' he said in between breaths.

Serris - October 2, 2008 04:03 AM (GMT)
"Excellent!" the Clydesdale said.

"Uh, I don't think electrokinesis is going to help. These turrets are shielded from electromagentic interference." James replied, "However, battering them with a heavy object may disable them."

"So, what's our first target?" the Clydesdale asked.

"The AWTR. The terrorists may be very heavily armed and we need some weapons." James replied.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 2, 2008 04:06 AM (GMT)
After viewing the video feed, Shelton raised one eyebrow. He contacted Zanasiu.

"Also, if you come across a terrorist that looks like a 30-year old version of Warner. Don't kill him. He might be on our side."

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 04:06 AM (GMT)
"Tells us about him,' werner said to joey. "Well I was watching him give orders to the others well he noticed I was there but he let me go for some reason,' joey told them. "That is strange,' werner said.

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 2, 2008 04:14 AM (GMT)
"Copy that,' a security team member replied.

LettuceBacon&Tomato - October 2, 2008 05:29 AM (GMT)
(Note: If anyone ever needs Shelton to do something for them from the control room, just contact him, and you have my permission to make him do what you need. Just phrase it something like this:

The soldier activated the radio. "Shelton, get the lights on in Hallway 3-D!"

After a few seconds, the lights flicker on.


Just so the story can continue easily.)

lbt/cty_lover - October 2, 2008 10:36 AM (GMT)
"What on Earth is going on?" Siberys thought to himself as he heard the gunshots.

"What is going on, Neku?" He asked one of the other experiments. HIs wings flapped in concern.

StarfallRaptor - October 2, 2008 10:34 PM (GMT)
Neku looked at Siberys, momentarily startled, then replied...
"We're under some sort of attack by Terrorists! I'm not sure how they got in here, or what they're after, but they're dangerous! We're heading towards the Advanced Weapons Testing Range, but who knows how many guys are between us and there. You gonna come with us?"
He then turned towards James.
"I was thinking option two. Are they shielded against being pulled out of the walls?"
He said, grinning somewhat...

lbt/cty_lover - October 2, 2008 11:21 PM (GMT)
Siberys closed his eyes to think about it. On one hand, he could be injured by the terrorists. On the other hand, he could help to secure the base.

"Sure. I'm coming." He said after a few moments of thought.

f-22 "raptor" ace - October 3, 2008 01:08 AM (GMT)
werner checked the clip in his AK and reloaded it. "I was running low anyway,' he muttered to himself.

Serris - October 3, 2008 09:37 PM (GMT)
James turned to Neku. "I don't know how much force it takes to pull them off the ceiling. The turrets weigh a half ton, at least, thanks to that armor. If you can weaken the bolts securing the turret, gravity should pull them down."

"Shouldn't we take radios, so we can contact Shelton?" the Clydesdale asked.

"Yeah." James replied. He took 5 radios and handed them to the Clydesdale, Werner, Siberys, Neku and kept one for himself.

"Are we ready now?" James asked the assembled group.
