Allele Science Laboratories OOC and Sign-Up (Sign-Ups Closed)

Post  Colter Bolt on Sat Sep 07, 2013 11:40 pm

It is a time of great prosperity for Equestria. Advances are being made in magic and science everyday. However, not all of these scientific advancements are encouraged by the government. One pony has hidden a lab dedicated to to the experementation of genetic mutation on the various species of Equestria. These experiments have created monsters, so to ensuere his safety and the chance to experiment on these monsters more, the pony has locked all of his living experiments into cryogenic chambers. After years of experimenting, the lab loses power, releasing the monsters.


This is where you, the players come in. The six of you are experiments who have managed to hold on to your sanity. Now, I want the characters to be extremely creative in their appearance. If somehow this gets more than 6 people signing up, then I will be choosing based off of experience with the newer guy getting first pick and then character creativity. In the backstory, I also want a way that they stayed sane. As for character knowledge, everything that has been shown in MLP: FiM, whether is is the past or the present, has not happened. This is because of the fact that this takes long before the three tribes joined together. About a 1000 years before with a society more advanced than that of current Equestria, including mechs. Also, this is the first time being a GM, so feedback is extremely welcomed. And yes, this is PbP

Now, the extra content. If you want one and don't see it up here, leave a reply linking me to it. I'll look over it and decide. And if you want your character to have something from over in the "What's Missing?" threads, again, talk to me about it.
Paper Shadow's Combat Expansion.
Flaws The Flaw does count as a regular pick, not a freebie, so choose wisely.
Talent Specialization

Approved Experiments:
Thirteen the Swimmer Doubles as an easy way to get rid of organic trash. Played by Ramsus
Spark Impulse Because a bad OC is the worst monster of all. (Disclaimer: That is not how I feel about the character, the character's appearance just makes me think of bad OCs.) Played by SparkImpulse
The Asura Sisters One of the various security systems in the lab. And I promise now not to trap them in a bag of their own skin. Played by tygerburningbright
Marrow The Slime King Gak Gak Gak. Played by Cardbo
Cranial Crack The griffoncore that's electrifyingly heavy metal. Played by Paper Shadow

Behind it is a platform, edged with a guardrail and sporting a control panel jutting out from the middle. There are rails stretching from the far wall to your side, with other rails crossing them. The rails go for as far as you can see. Stairs run along you wall.
So there's stairs that are going up, and some sort of platform mounted on a rail leading off into the darkness? That last sentence isn't clear.

did you ever play the first half-life? There's a ramp ... to the actual surface, I think, that meets the description I read here. At least, that's what I'm picturing.

On an unrelated note, I don't seem to have gotten an email that posts were happening. Strange. Anyway ... need to get rid of the negative three penalty. So, up we go!

I've played both Portals if that count. Haven't played the Half-Life series. I'm pretty sure I can picture whats in the scene, but that last sentence in the description was a little odd.

Essentially, yes. That's what it is supposed to be, but I was a little hurried, hence the horrible description.

did it work?

Post  Ka.avik on Sun Sep 29, 2013 3:10 pm

I think the details of word selection should be different if Cranial's actions made Spark jittery as well as tired, versus awake and adequately alert.

Suddenly Cranial Crack puts me in mind of BARON from Project Flankorage (an Fo:E novel, if you couldn't guess) who also produced healing potions just for walking around.

Good luck. Even without the penalty, it'd be tough for Marrow to roll high enough.

Well wouldn't Spark Impulse know the Doctor's name?  Unless he called him Doctor all the time, which is possible, but just seems a little weird.

EDIT:While we're on the subject, I'm imagining that Marrow's been on ice for a few years. That depends on when the facility opened, of course.

No one, except the doc, knows when it opened. Let's say he was brought in 5 years before the current events? And Spark will still have to roll high to get a name. The doc never used it, but there might be some rumors.

Ok. I edited my last post. If someone could assist on that roll, I could bring it past 20.

Well, I just rolled a 19, for 25 to history. I'll go post about that, I guess.

I really have no idea what to have Thirteen be doing here, since the original goal, the one that made sense to her, was to keep going up until they got above ground... and now we're doing something else for no given reason.

reverse dungeon crawl?

Post  Ka.avik on Mon Oct 21, 2013 10:02 pm

I'd like to go into a floor two, see what Colter Bolt has prepared for us. While getting out is a good motivation, having resources is good one, too. For that we'd need to wander around a bit, see what's still working down here. Maybe figure out how long we've been out so we can prepare for our new lives on the surface as free monsters.

Sparky, for one, is expecting to have to change careers -- The aristocracy that would take over from the aging unicorn king would have (he surmises to himself) wanted to restructure the guard. Only a few individuals would have personal protection but the general populace would be expected to police themselves ... and where would poor Spark Impulse fit into this nightmare world he's constructed in his head?

Precision agriculture, he's thinking. Deliver precise volumes of water to privately owned freeway on-ramps where small farming practices lead to and abundance of zucchini and hot peppers. Probably one to three bits paid per cubic yard of water rained ...

Of course all this will require a college degree. After all, he's a mage, not a weathercrafter. Yet.
