Greetings! My name is Mordae, and I will be taking over this game concept for the benefit of those interested, many of whom were disappointed by the former GM's behaviour. If you expressed interest before, feel free to jump back on the bandwagon. If you didn't but would like to, you're welcome also
This game is a takeoff of the Stargate: Universe idea. In this game, the survivors of an Ori attack has been thrown somewhere into space. The ship can barely support those who survived the attack, and death is inevitable unless a miracle occurs. And that is where this game begins: with a 'miracle'.
This is a Freeform game, which means that for the most part we won't be needing any stinking rules. To provide a little basis for comparative urges and conflict resolution, we will be using the Window, a very simple rules-lite system.
The game starts at the fringes of the Stargate canon and branches sharply from there. It's set in late 2009 following the launch of the sixth Daedalus-class ship, George Hammond (formerly Phoenix). The story arc is intended to cover the time from the attack described above until the point where the crew is rescued or perishes.
Since the George Hammond was fully crewed up until the attack, the survivors could be any member of the initial ship's complement. Officers, enlisted, and civilians are all welcome. Regarding races, the crew would be almost exclusively Tau'ri but I'm willing to consider individual exceptions.
The Window system provides a framework for defining character traits, and its Quickstart Guide is a great place to start. I'd like to see a little bit of history to explain how the character became involved in SGC and ended up assigned to the George Hammond to accompany the crunchy bits.
Post completed applications here. Feel free to put up something incomplete and edit it into final form, so long as when you do finish it you mark it COMPLETE so it's obvious to me.
This is a Freeform game. If you aren't familiar with the concept, it basically means that the players are expected to police their actions and not develop an I-can-do-anything god complex. The GM's role is to move the storyline, handle NPCs, and referee the occasional situation where players can't agree on the outcome of a particular situation.
None to speak of at this time.
Hey Mordae, glad to see you starting another game. I'm in if you will have me, and would not be afraid to carry Simon Wright over from the Earth game, especially as that seems to be falling slowly into oblivion ( )
