Outlands Industrial Works wrote:Do you seek adventure? Profit? Maybe a little danger? Outland Industrial Works is looking for able bodied men and women to staff a colony on Ares 5. Training will be included in your plan, and equipement, clothing, and housing will be provided. All it takes is a six month commitment, a short interview process, and a space flight to send you to a world you never imagined The Fringe awaits. Will you answer?

Stats:
Spoiler: show
At start, every character receives 4 points, and can subtract from certain skills to add to others. Skills cannot be raised above 2 or dropped below -2 at character creation. They cannot be raised above 4. Characters start at level 0, and they generally level up after a successful mission or as the GM determines.

Vitality is your ability to push on like Bonn-o-Tron. At 0 vitality, taking a hit results in death. Maximum vitality is equal to the character’s level, and it is restored at a rate of 10% every hour spent resting. Points may be put into increasing maximum vitality at character creation, but not after. Note that putting points into vitality does not stack with level based vitality, so putting 2 points into vitality means that the character willl have 2 max vitality until they hit level 3. Vitality points can be spent to increase rolls by a degree of success.

Piloting is your ability to fly ships both in combat and in peacetime. Navigating difficult terrain, Flying combat vehicles, and evasive maneuvers are all piloting.

Combat is your ability as a foot soldier. Firearms, hand-to-hand combat, and gun emplacements are all examples of combat.

Technical is your skill with tools and technology. The Technical stat is used to operate and repair machinery and to engineer creative solutions to problems.

Medicine is your skill with treating injuries. This encompasses all types, from chemical burns to bullet wounds to downright amputations.

Reconnaissance is your ability to take in and process tactical information quickly, and to remain undetected while doing so.

Negotiation is your ability to deal with opposing companies in a more civil manner. It includes negotiating territory ownership, ceasefires, and the like.


Equipment:
Spoiler: show
Given:

Handgun: no penalty to combat when fighting enemies equipped with firearms

Rations (1 Week): will keep the character fed for a week.

Containment Suit: Protects from suffocation and other environmental hazards. Does not protect against firearms, fire, or corrosive agents.


Carry 2 at a time:

Submachinegun: +4 to remain undetected when firing

Combat Rifle: +1 bonus to hit at all times, inflicts a -2 to hit on targeted enemies

Shotgun: +2 bonus to hit when engaged in combat (fired upon in previous turn), bonus hit when engaged for two turns

Marksman Rifle: +2 bonus to hit when not directly engaged in combat (not under fire in previous turn) Bonus damage when not engaged for three turns

First Aid Kit: Necessary for effective treatment (-3 to medicine when not used)

Booster: Short distance jetpack, good for combat maneuvering (upon using jumpjets, enemies receive a -3 to hit. Jumpjets recharge every three turns)

Uplink: Advanced GPS, scanning, radar, and targeting for artillery

Tools: Necessary for effective repairs (-3 to technical when not used)

Rocket Launcher: double use disposable anti-tank weapon. Deals 3 hits of damage. -4 to hit against infantry.

Frag Grenade: Thrown explosives deals 2 hits of damage to clustered enemies. -3 to hit, targets each individually. Come in sets of 2.

Armor: reduces enemy chance to deal damage by 1, absorbs 2 points of damage before being destroyed.


This RPG system is mechanically similar to titan world, so it should be simple enough to pick up. If you're interested, just make a character and as soon as we have enough people we'll begin.

Characters:

Doctor Ramdeep Dundati

Nathan "Full-throttle" Franklin

Marcel Bouchard

Thomas Grant

X-707

James "King" Crimson

You only used 3 points. You can use 1 more freely.
Also you forgot to list vitality.

Adjusted equipment table to be clearer.

Outlands Industrial Works wrote:Planet: Ares 5
Branch ID: 04A59
Temperature: 50 C to -12 C
Estimated resource value: 1.4 Billion
Ares 5 has undergone basic terraforming. Moisture is nonexistant. Atmosphere is breathable in emergencies but contains higher levels of oxygen and is generally considered dangerous. Planet lacks native life.

Base camp has been established 3.3 kilometers from a valley containing rich Iron deposits. Few other groups have established a presence on the planet yet. However, be advised that the Wyverlund Colonization Front has set up an outpost 112.5 kilometers away from basecamp. Conflict is anticipated but at the moment they have asked for a ceasefire. Hostile actions in case of self-defense will be evaluated, but are authorized.

Welcome to Ares 5. Upon landing, check in with the field director for your responsibilities.

I think Silver was out this week on Sat (or we'd be doing Titan). Sat is the only day this weekend that I could do anything extended.

Not at all. Welcome aboard.

Maybe it would be simpler to run this the old fashioned way instead of as a chat thing. Anyone have strong opinions one way or another?
