Title: Darwin's Soldiers 2: Survival of the Fittest
Serris - March 18, 2009 09:46 PM (GMT)
Discussion is here
. Please place all character profiles there.Rule set:
You can play as the soldiers, experiments, scientists.
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.
Dragonstorm experiments - capable of using psionic powers and have a cybernetic enhancement. They are very limited in mental capabilities (capable of following orders and limited speech but that's about it). Dragonstorm experiments sport 1 psi and 1 cyber enhancement (up to 3 total in any combination). Note that they must have a weakness of some sort, no matter how small.
NOTE: Humans and Furries can be any faction.
NOTE: Allied scientists can start only with a pistol, improvised weapon or nothing.
NOTE: Any faction can use heavier weaponry (RPGs, grenades, etc.)
NOTE: Only soldiers can use armored vehicles and crew served weaponry.
NOTE: All Dragonstorm experiments are enemy aligned.
NOTE: Scientists, soldiers and cyber and psi experiments can be enemy aligned or allied.
NOTE: Allied scientists and soldiers can either start inside Pelvanida or outside (perhaps in a military base?)
NOTE: If you decide to use your old characters, they must start outside the base.
This is a mixed Human and anthro world.
You may have as many characters as you can control
A mere two weeks after the terrorist assault at Nevada's top secret Pelvanida Complex, reports of a mysterious project "Dragonstorm" have surfaced in the local media. The government, fearing a massive public relations disaster, has ordered the personnel who helped fight off the terrorist assault to be fired from Pelvanida and banned from ever working with the government and promised a full investigation into the matter.
After about three months, the investigation has revealed the guilty: Dragonstorm scientists. They were convicted and sentenced for multiple counts of assault, kidnapping and unlawful imprisonment. Each received life in prison without parole.
But only a month had passed before the Dragonstorm scientists were released from prison and back at Pelvanida. "Insufficient evidence" was cited as the cause of their release, but many, especially the former Pelvanida staff had their suspicions.

Aisha parked her car into an available spot and killed the engine. she readied her clearance pass, and patted the small 32. caliber she had been given by her father. Today was her first day on the base, which had seen heavy fighting and incurred heavy damage from the Dragonstorm afffair. Aisha had been hired to work with a Dr. Zaniasu..
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 02:17 AM (GMT)
Hans was standing gaurd at the door and saw aisha walking up "I need to see your clearence before you can go any further,' he said.
Nick22 - March 19, 2009 02:19 AM (GMT)
Aisha brought out her clearance pass. "Aisha Tennes, I'm here to see DR. Zaniusu, I've been assigned to him as an understudy.." She said..
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 02:22 AM (GMT)
Hans looked at the clearence card before giving it back and said before opening the door and holding it open "welcome to Pelvanida ms Tennes'.
Nick22 - March 19, 2009 02:32 AM (GMT)
"Thank you" Aisha said, , nodding as she walked through the dooor, and down a rubble-cluttered hallway. Here and there she could see gaping holes where insulation was visible. "Its going to take a lot of tax dollars to fix this place up.. " she thought..
Serris - March 19, 2009 03:19 AM (GMT)
(OOC - All previous scientists from the original RP were fired to avoid attracting bad publicity. I'll work that in to the dialogue.)
One of the workers, an anthro Bison, who was pushing a cart filled with concrete rubble through the halls, looked at Aisha. "I hear you're looking for Dr. James Zanasiu?"
Dr. Zanasiu had just arrived back at his suburban Las Vegas home. He parked his car and entered his house.
He looked at a newspaper on his front step. "This is yesterday's newspaper. Oh well, can't hurt to see what it is." he muttered.
He picked up the newspaper and headed into his house locking the door behind himself.
As Dr. Zanasiu brewed a cup of tea, he read today's newspaper. He chuckled to himself as he got to the entertainment section. There, he saw a ad for a movie based on the terrorist attack at Pelvanida months before. "Wow, the government tries to keep something secret and Hollywood wants to make a blockbuster film of it."
As he finished reading the rest of the newspaper he turned to the old newspaper he picked up on his front step. When he opened it, a small piece of white paper fell out.
Dr. Zanasiu picked up the piece of paper and read it. His mouth fell open at the contents. It was in Zachary's handwriting:
James, come to my house quickly. I'll tell you more.
Dr. Zanasiu shivered; Zachary was never so secretive unless something huge had happened.
He sighed, went up to this bedroom and grabbed his .45 pistol and holster and put it on.
He then went to his car, started it up and drove to Zachary's house.
Zachary was sitting on his couch, facing him was a Cobalt Squad soldier.
"So did James receive your note?" the Cobalt soldier asked him.
"I placed it on his doorstep before he arrived home from work. He should have gotten it and knowing him, he takes anything very seriously." Zachary replied.

(OOC: series does that go for all the surviving characters from the original RP?)
Nick22 - March 19, 2009 03:35 AM (GMT)
(I'm guessing so)
"If you're looking for Zanisu, Miss, he no longer works here" Said a scientist, coming up to her. 'he was let go after the Dragonstorm business, him and all of those guys. I think it was to keep them quiet , and keep this place open. If they had talked this place would have been thrown down and left to revert to nature you catch my drift.." the scentist said..
Serris - March 19, 2009 03:35 AM (GMT)
(OOC - Only the Pelvanida staff (scientists and guards). Hans was a terrorist in the previous RP; he is not affected by the decision to fire the scientists and guards. And you really can't fire the experiments.)
After a half hour drive, Dr. Zanasiu arrived at Zachary's house. The door was opened and he was quickly ushered into the house.
"Nice to see you James." Zachary said, shutting and locking the door behind him. "Head to the living room."
Dr. Zanasiu did as he was told and to his shock, he found a Cobalt soldier sitting on a couch.
"What are you doing here?" Dr. Zanasiu asked?
"We need to talk, it's about what you found in Pelvanida. I'll give a briefing, then we'll head over to Carson City Camp, where we are based." the Cobalt soldier replied.
Dr. Zanasiu sat down on a nearby recliner.
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 03:40 AM (GMT)
Werner was sitting in a dinner drinking a cup of coffee after being fired he had got a job as chief of security at a Casino in Las Vegas. He took out his cell phone and called James.
Serris - March 19, 2009 03:43 AM (GMT)
Dr. Zanasiu's cell phone rang. "Hello?"
Zachary gestured for him to put cell phone away.
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 03:45 AM (GMT)
"Hello James? It's me Werner,' Werner said.
Serris - March 19, 2009 03:54 AM (GMT)
"Werner? If you're free; come to Zachary's house immediately!" Dr. Zanasiu said. He then turned to Zachary. "It's Werner."
Nick22 - March 19, 2009 03:55 AM (GMT)
Yes I am' aisha replied. "Where can I find him?' she asked the Bison..
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 03:58 AM (GMT)
"I just got on break I'll be right there would it be alright if my dad comes too,' werner asked.
Serris - March 19, 2009 04:04 AM (GMT)
"I'm not sure. I'll check." Dr. Zanasiu replied. He then turned to the Cobalt soldier. "Werner and Hans Donitz are coming here."
"Good. We'll need them." Zachary replied.
Inside Pelvanida Complex, Dr. Keith Bailey was looking over the vast array of monitors.
"Hey, Dr. Bailey, what happened to the previous control room admin?" a technician asked.
Dr. Bailey sighed. "You mean Dr. Rudyard Shelton? He was deported but something didn't add up; he was cited for 'unauthorized access to classified materials' but yet he was not arrested. They simply just told him to pack his stuff and get the hell out."
Nick22 - March 19, 2009 04:06 AM (GMT)
The Scientist who had first spoken to Aisha came up to her. "Names Micah Landon.. You need inside informatio I'm your man.." He whispered..
StarfallRaptor - March 19, 2009 04:46 AM (GMT)
As the group at James's house began talking, a soft knock on the door was heard...
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 02:35 PM (GMT)
Hans had already got off work when he heard his cellphone ring "hello,' he said. "Dad it's me Werner I need you to get to James place,' werner said. "Alright I'm on my way,' hans replied hanging up his cell phone.
Serris - March 19, 2009 08:14 PM (GMT)
(OOC - everyone is at Zachary's house)
Zachary heard a knocking on his door. He motioned to Dr. Zanasiu and the Cobalt soldier, who drew their pistols and followed Zachary.
Zachary opened the door. "Hello?"
The Cobalt soldier and Dr. Zanasiu had their pistols at the ready.
Inside the Carson City Camp, the base commander, General Thomas Moby, a anthro Bulldog was brooding in his office.
"I need Dr. Zanasiu and all the staff involved at the terrorist attack at Pelvanida to be at this base." He radioed to the Cobalt Commander.
"Sir, they should be arriving soon, sir." the Cobalt Commander's voice replied.
"Thank you, Commander." Gen. Moby then cut off the transmission.
Gen. Moby sighed and looked at the newspaper on his desk. The headline was: Two children abducted by mysterious labcoat clad Cheetah
"I know I'm probably breaking every military protocol there is but it seems like I have no choice. Dragonstorm appears to be up and running. The president can't do anything because he's completely oblivious or doesn't give a damn. And worse is Pelvanida itself seems to have fallen off the map. "
The Bison turned to Aisha. "I'm here just to clean up but rumor has it Dr. Zanasiu and a bunch of other scientists were fired for finding out about some kind of secret project." he whispered to her.
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 19, 2009 08:19 PM (GMT)
Werner drove out to the gates of the facility 'I can't beleive you accecpted a job as a security agent here,' werner said. "Well it's a start,' hans said. 'James wants us to meet him at his place in carson city,' werner said. "Well lets get going then,' hans said as he and werner got into werner's car and drove off.
Serris - March 19, 2009 08:25 PM (GMT)
(OOC - I thought Starfall's characters were knocking? I guess they can arrive later. Oh well, I'll work with what you did.)
"Werner? Hans? Come inside quickly!" Zachary said, ushering them inside.
Nick22 - March 19, 2009 09:41 PM (GMT)
Great so I'm supposede to work for a guy..' aisha began.. before a human saergabt came up to them. 'Ms. Tennes, You will be working in therBiloogy lab here on base.. Come with me please.." He clicked his heels in trained military and bade her come with him. "Sergant Topper at your service ms. Tennes."
StarfallRaptor - March 19, 2009 10:24 PM (GMT)
"Actually, it was us who happened to be knocking."
Came a familiar voice, as Cale, Neku, and the others dropped down from the roof.
"Sorry about not being more obvious, but we're all supposed to be dead. You understand, right?"
Kagetora said calmly. He was rather a strange sight, wearing a suit and tie instead of his customary ninja attire. Hawkeye, too, looked out of place, with his mechanical eye hidden by his new hairstyle, and his other mechanical components hidden under a sport coat and slacks...
Serris - March 20, 2009 12:00 AM (GMT)
"Good! Come in quickly!" Zachary said, ushering Cale, Kagetora, Neku and Hawkeye into his house and locking the door behind them.
"Nice to see you all again." the Cobalt soldier said.
Serris - March 20, 2009 03:50 AM (GMT)
"Shall we start the briefing?" Zachary asked.
"Hans and Werner Donitz need to be here." the Cobalt soldier replied. He then turned to everyone present. "Listen up, once the Werner and Hans get here, I gill give a quick briefing on the situation. Once that is done, we will be heading over to Carson City Camp to meet with the base commander, General Thomas Moby."

(OOC: should I edit my previous post?)
Nick22 - March 20, 2009 03:54 AM (GMT)
(I'll bringing Aisha over to Carson City camop, along with a couple other characters..)
Serris - March 20, 2009 04:04 AM (GMT)
(OOC - Nick, that's fine. F-22, you may want to edit your post.)
"Do not tell me this is about 'Dragonstorm'." Dr. Zanasiu said.
The Cobalt soldier nodded.
Nick22 - March 20, 2009 04:08 AM (GMT)
Suddenly the phoine rang it was a strange number. In fact it Was Aisha'a father, trying to reach DR. Zaniusu..
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 20, 2009 04:10 AM (GMT)
A car drove up outside DR. Zaniusus house and a pair of familer voices came from outside 'This it,' hans asked. "Yeah this is it,' werner said before they walked up to the door and werner knocked on the door.
Serris - March 20, 2009 04:20 AM (GMT)
Zachary picked up the phone. "Hello?"
Dr. Keith Bailey, an anthro Australian Monitor was monitoring the base's sensors when the Pelvanida Administrator's voice came over his radio. "Dr. Bailey, kill communications with the outside world."
"Pardon?" Dr. Bailey asked.
"Do not ask questions do it."
"This is against all protocol!"
The voice made a noise of disgust. "[censored] protocol! This is bigger than that."
"If you're trying to get me to help you hide that damned Dragonstorm experiment, forget it! I was willing to look the other way until I found out that you were kidnapping children for this! You can kiss my scaly ass!" Dr. Bailey spat.
Dr. Bailey got up and tried to exit the control room only to find out that the door was locked. "Open the door!"
Dr. Ian Branston, an anthro bay Thoroughbred chuckled. "So sorry, Dr. Bailey. But we can't let you leave the complex." Dr. Branston then disabled all of the base's external communications. He then radioed a security squad. "Sierra Tango Five, maintain the radio tower."
"So, you're...you're in on it too!?" Dr. Bailey spat, shaking with rage.
"Took you this long? Do you know a certain Keegan O'Neill?"
"He's in jail!"
"No he's not. But I can't tell you where he is."
Serris - March 20, 2009 04:23 AM (GMT)
Dr. Zanasiu and the Cobalt Soldier drew their pistols and opened the door and found Hans and Werner outside.
The Cobalt Soldier quickly ushered them in. "Come in!" he whispered.
Dr. Zanasiu quickly bolted the door and closed all the curtains in the living room where everyone was gathered. "Okay, that's everyone."
Nick22 - March 20, 2009 04:25 AM (GMT)
Hello, I am looking for DR. Zaniusu Is he there?' Came the reply...
Serris - March 20, 2009 04:26 AM (GMT)
Zachary handed the phone to Dr. Zanasiu.
"This is Dr. Zanasiu." Dr. Zanasiu replied. "Who is this."
Nick22 - March 20, 2009 04:31 AM (GMT)
Dr. Donald Tennens, at your service. i had hoped that me daughter, Aisha could study under you. She's newly graduated from Stanford, and I'd like her to learn from the best in the business..."Dr Tennens replied. "I know things have not... gone well for you and your colleagues over the past two months..but I am willing to personally hire you, on my own dime, to tutor Aisha for the next 3 years. 100000 a year, for 3 years... How does that sound, Dr.?"
f-22 "raptor" ace - March 20, 2009 04:32 AM (GMT)
"I gotta bad feeling about what's going on at Pelvanida I just have a feeling that something bad is going on there,' hans said.
Serris - March 20, 2009 04:38 AM (GMT)
"Dr. Tennens, I am very sorry but I am currently working with the pharmaceuticals company Krebs-Calvin and I have my hands full. I'll see if I can get her a position as an intern at Krebs-Calvin." Dr. Zanasiu replied.
"What do you mean, Hans?" Zachary asked. He then pondered for a moment. "Now that you think about it, something is weird, we were banned from ever working with the government and fired from Pelvanida and we're relatively obscure, yet by all rights we should be heroes."
(OOC - random bio reference!)
Nick22 - March 20, 2009 04:40 AM (GMT)
Red Lights started flashing across the baseAisha, suddenly, turned, and gragged Landon, and the Bison carrying a push broom along with her. "This is too heavy! Come on you two! Come with me!' Landom shrugged at the Bison. "Where do you plan to go?' He asked. "Carson City.." Aisha replied. "Dr. Zaniusu isn't here.. so I'm going there... and you guys are coming with me. Aisha said firmly..
